1 stand to tell the story; mercy, mercy,
long-suffering mercy: sovereign mercy,
infinite mercy, omnipontent mercy, ever
lasting mercy. Why, it seems in the
Bible as if ali lanruare were exhausted,
as if it were stretched until it broke, as
if all expression were struck dead at the
feet of prophet and apostle and evange
list, when it tries to describe God s
Oh. says someone, that is only adding
to my crime, if I come and confess before
God and seek his mercy. No. no! The
murderer has come, and while he was
washing the blood of his victim from his
hands, looked into the face of God and
cried for mercy, and his soul lias been
white in God's pardoning love! And tho
soul that has wandered off in the streets,
and down to the very gates of hell, lias
como back to her father’s house, throwing
her arms around his neck, and been saved
by the mercy that saved Mary Magdalen.
" But, says someone, you are throwing
open that door of mercy too wide. No, I
will throw it open wider; 1 will take the
responsibility of saying that, if all this
audience.'instead of being gathered in a
semi-circle, were placed side by side, in
one long line, they could all march right
through that wide-open gate of mercy.
“Whosoever,” “whosoever.” Oh, this
mercy of God—there is no line long
enough to fathom it; there is no ladder
long enough to scale it; there is no arith
metic facile enough to calculate it; no
angel’s wing can fly across it.
Heavenly harpers, aided by choirs with
feet like the sun, cannot compass that
harmony of Mercy, Mercy. It sounds in
the rumbling of the celestial gates; I hear
it in the chiming of the celestial towers;
I see it flashing in the uplifted and down
cast coronets of the saved ; I hear it in
the thundering tread of the bannered
hosts round about the throne; nnd then it
comes from the harps, and crowns, and
thrones, and processions, to sit down, un
expressed, on a throne over-topping all
heaven —the throne of mercy.
How I was affected when someone
told me in regurd to that accident on
Long Island Sound, when one poor woman
came and got her hand on a raft, as she
tried to save herself, but those who were
on the raft thought there was no room for
her, and one man came nnd most, cruelly
beat and bruised her hands until she fell
off. Oh, I bless God that this life-boat of
the Gospel has room enough for the six
teen hundred millions of the race—room
for one, room for all, and yet there is
I push this analysis of the publican’s
prayer a step further, and And that he
did not expect any mercy except by
pleading for it. He did not fold his
hands together, as some do, saying, “If
I’m to he saved. I’ll be saved; if I’m to be
lost, i ll he lost, and there is nothing for
me to do.” He knew what was worth
having was worth asking for; hence this
earnest cry of the text, “God be merciful
to me a sinner,”
It was an earnest prayer, and it is
characteristic of all Bible prayers that
they were answered. The blind man:
“Lord, that I may receive my sight;” the
leper: "Lord, if thou wilt, thou cans!
make me clean;" sinking Peter: “Lord,
save me;” the publican: “God be merci
ful to me a sinner.” But if you come up
with the tip of yogr finger and tap at the
gate of mercy, it will not open: you have
got to have the earnestness of the warrior
who, defeated and pursued, dismounts
from his lathered steed, and with gaunt
let ed fist pounds at the palace gate.' You
have got to have the earnestness of tho
man who at midnight in the fourth story
has a sense of suffocation, with the house
in flames, goes to the window and shouts
to the firemen, “Help!” Oh. unforgiven
soul 1 if you were in full earnest I might
have to command silence in the auditory, ■
for your prayers would drown the voice
of the speaker, and we would have to
pause in the great service. It is because
you do not realize your sin before God
that you are uot this moment crying:
Mercv, morcy, mercy.
This prayer of the publican was also
nn humble prayer. The pharisee looked
up, the publican looked down. You can
not be saved as a metaphysician, or as a
rhetorician; you cannot be saved as a
scholar; you cannot be saved as an artist;
you cannot be saved as an official. If you
are ever saved at all it will be as a sinner.
“God be merciful to me a sinner.”
Another characteristic of the prayer of
the publican was, it had a ring of confi
dence. It was not a cry of despair. He
knew he was going to get what he asked
for; he wanted mercy, he asked for it, ex
pecting it. And do you tell me, oh man 1
that God has provided this salvation, and
is not going to let you have it?
If a man build a bridge across a river,
will he not let people go over it? If a phy
sician gives a prescription to a sick man,
will he not let him take it? If an archi
tect puts up a building, will he not let
people in it? If God provides salvation,
will he not let you have it? Oh, if there
be a Pharisee here, a man who says, 1 am
all right, my past life has been right. I
don’t want the pardon of the gospel, for
I have no sin to pardon, let me say that
while that man is in that mood, there is
no peace for him ; there is no pardon, no
salvation; and the probability is he will
go down and spend eternity with the lost
Pharisee of the text.
But if there be here one who says, I
want to be better, I want to quit m.v sins,
my life has been a very imperfect life;
how many things have 1 said that I
should not have said, how many things I
have done 1 should not have done; I want
to change m.v life: I want to begin now;
let me say to su< h a soul, God it waiting.
God is ready, and are you near the king
dom, or rather you have entered it, for no
man says. 1 am determined to serve God,
and surrender the sins of m.v life: here
now. 1 consecrate myself to the Gird Je
sus Christ, who died to redeem me—no
man from the depth of his soul says that,
but bo is already a C r.stian.
My uncle, the Rev. Samuel K. Talmage.
Of Augusta. Ga.. was passing along the
streets of Augusta one day. and he saw a
man, a black man, step from the sidewalk
out into the street, take his hat off and
and bow very lowly. My uncle was not
a man who demanded obsequiousness, and
he said, “What do you that for?" "Oh,"
said the man, "Massa. the other night I
was going along the street and I had
a burden on my shoulder, and i was
sick and I was hungry, and I came to the
door of your church, nnd you were
preaching about. ’God be merciful to me
a sinner.’ and I stood there at the door
long enough to hear you say that if a man
could utter that prayer from the depths
of his soul God would pardon him. and
finally take him to heaven. Then i
put m.v burden o.i my shoulder, an 1 1
started home. I got to my home, and 1
sat down, and 1 said, -God be merciful
to me a sinner,’ but it got darker and
darker, and then Massa, I got down oa
■ niv knee*, and I said (>! be merciful to
no a *itiner. and the burden got heavier,
and it gut darker and darker: i knew not
what to do Then I got down on my face,
and 1 i tied, <od be merciful to me a tn
nor,’ and away off 1 saw a light eoming.
and it came nearer and nearer until all
was bright in m.v heart, and 1 anise I
am happy now the burden is all gone,
and I said to myself, if ever I met you in
the street I would get elear off tho side
walk, and I would bow down, ami take
my hat off before you I l<*el that I owe
more to you than to any other man. That
is tin* reason 1 bow before you.”
Oh. an* there not many now who can
i utter this prayer, the prayer of the blaek
man. the prayer of the publiean. "God to
merciful to me a sinner'" While 1 halt in
the sermon will you not all utter it? I
do not sas' audibly, hut utter it down in
the depths of your soul's consciousness.
Yes.thcsigh goes all through the galleries,
it goes all through the pews, it goes all
through the aisles, sigh after sigh. God
be mercifcl to tne a sinner.
Have you all uttered it? No. there is
one soul that has not uttered it; too proud
to utter it: too hard to utter it. Oh.
Holy Spirit, descend upon that one heart
Yes, he begins to breathe it now. No
bowing of the head yet, no startling tear
but the prayer is beginning—it is bom,
God lie merciful to me a sinner.
Have all uttered it! Then I utter it my
self, for no one in all the house needs to
utter it more than my own soul: God
bo merciful to me a sinner.
The Closing Exercises How the Boys
Acquitted Themselves.
Sharon, Ga., July I.—The closing exer
cises of the Sacred Heart seminary, at
this place, a flourishing school for boys
taught by the Sisters of St. Joseph, were
highly entertaining. A number of visitors
from Atlanta, Augusta and Savannah
were present at the examinations. Pa
rents were much pleased to see hoiv
healthy* the little fellows looked, and all
were delighted by the ease and prompt
ness with which they answered all the
questions asked The large, airy study
hall was tastefully decorated with vines
and rare flowers, and tho blackboards
were covered witli beautiful drawings in
colored crayons. Many of the boys de
claimed very well. Those most noticeable
were George Norten, Joseph Gatins and
John Falve.v, of Atlanta, Max Johnson, of
Harnett, and little George Falligant, of
Rt. Rev. Bishop Becker, assisted by

Sisters are doing a noble work in this
little village. This school is the finest in
the state for training little hoys and pre

the wants of tho school, is now having
another addition put to it, which will pro
vide a finer dormitory, refectory and

White Does Not Confine Itself to Drees
How it Comes Out in Gloves and
Footwear The Latest Styles In
Shoes Something About Stockings.
.Copyright. 18U3. I
New York July 1 (>er fancy for white has
returned to us again Although wi* sre so
tickle in our devotion to the various colors,
there is one season of the year when the
thoughts of almost all women turn lovingly to
the cool, pure spotlessness of w hite. When
the sun has tilinded us with its continual
glare, when the heat has ruffled our tempers
and made us feel so uncomfortable and irrita
ble, we feel that there is but one relief for
all of our distemper and discomfort.i
The relief consists In donning the
coolest sheerest white gown that we can
lay our hands upon. But we go farther
than this; we feel that the sight of other
colors anywhere upon us would be un
bearable. And we proceed to add white
stockings, white shoes or ties, white
gloves, fan, parasol and hat. It is delight
ful i>e so clad ; even though we have
colored dresses just as sheer and cool,
we argue ourselves into believing that
none ig so cool as the white. Besides,
it is most restful to look iqion when our
eyes have been so wearied by the glare of
the sun.
This is why white never ceases to he
the rage at a certain season of the year,
if at no other time. For* at least two sunn
mer months it is without a rival. And
the dawn of its reign this year is just be
ginning to flush the horizon; or rather,
to whiten it with a soft, vaporous cloud.
White in gowns we shall consider be
fore long. Let us talk to-day of the mi
nor jioints of a woman’s toilet —those
minor points that make or mar the
w hole.
First—-The gloves. Here the white is
seen, for the mqst part, in heavy suede —
for driving and country wear and in the
chamois which was so generally worn
last summer. The chamois in its natural
i olor is also a great favorite. White in
the glare kid is not worn, it makes the
hand look too large. Neither do we seo
much of the silk glove in white.
Even in the evening glove we prefer tho
snow color. Some or the newest evening
gloves are elalxirately embroidered in
silver beads—the design being long and
narrow over the back of the hand, but
stretching out considerably over the
But it is in the stocking and the shoe
that we delight to bring forth the white.
In the stocking, particularly, a fine silk
one of exquisite open-work over the in
step, all in white or cream, is most fetch
ing. The white may be dotted with
bouquets of an almost imperceptible tint,
if there is a touch of color in the gown ;
or a little green may peep forth in the
leaves. But all white is, 1 think, much
The white boot that covers the white
stocking that peeps from beneath the
white gown, may be also of suede, if you
will, to match the glove. But it is usu
ally of dressed kid, or of canvas. The
canvas ones are particularly cool and
comfortable. A dressy effect is given by
the white kid that tips and trims them,
by the pretty gold clasp that catches the
silken lace. The kid ones,*too, also have
their short uppers made of fancy cloth
stripe, or of a white and gold material.
Of course, you are resigned to the
slightly enlarged appearance of your foot
—it is inevitable. White always en
larges, as black reduces.
But we can not all wear white; and
those of us who can, can not wear it all
summer. Therefore let us be wise, and
oonsider what else may be appropriate,
even for warm days. In the line of gloves,
there is little to be said. The suede
holds its own. although it was threatened
by the dressed kid, presumably because
it caught our ears under the title of
The English box gloves, however, are
of dressed kid, and at present of the
lightest shades of pinky fawn and choco
late. They are stitched with white and
brick color. A tight-fitting silk glove is
very neat; and. although the warranted
triple finger-tips do wear out in a re
markably short time, the silk continues
to be worn. The silk glove, for traveling,
now has an addition in the way of kid
tips—an addition which makes them very
'l’tieother English fancy in gloves is that
of wearing brilliant colors with black
gowns. We have followed their example
in this country, although such combina
tion is not in the best of taste.
The latest French fancy is a black kid
with colored silk stitching, and with pearl
buttons the shade of the stitching.
in stockings there is an endless variety,
and scarcely a particular style. The
stockings, of course, still matches either
the gown or tho boot, generally the latter.
It will probably not to long before the
large majority of womankind will wear
the silk stocking. Once it was a luxury ?
but now its price has *0 fallen that it is
within the means of almost all. The
plaited silk stocking is a subterfuge, a de
lusion and a snare.
Don't be tempted into trying it. It is
cheap, assuredly—you can get it from
fifty cents to a dollar a pair. But a fine,
open lisle is much more satisfactory than
a plaited silk. Even the all silkones are
offered, at sales, as low as a dollar and a
quarter a pair.
In silk, the black ones are delightful.
They can be bought in the ordinary wide
rib, or in the newer small and close one.
The meshes grow larger every day, so
that more of the pink flesh, or the pink
tint of the garment beneath, can be soen.
Then, there is the broad stripe, altern
ated with a stripe of open work in fancy
design; and the black closely covered
with bright little knots of flowers, in light
colors. These are pretty where black
ties or slippers are worn with light-col
ored gowns. There is also the checker
board, black and white pattern.
Of course all the light-colored silks,
ribbed or embroidered, are worn where
the gown and the boot are of the same
shade. The lisles, too, in the lighter
colors, or in black, look very pv°Uy.
A brilliant grass green promises to to
very popular this summer, as well as the
violet that has bloomed all winter.
The tie is not quite so popular as it was.
The knowledge is gradually spreading of
the weakened ankle, tho enlargement of
the foot, which result from the
continual wearing of the tie
and therefore for ordinary summer wear,
for traveling, and for outings, tho tan
laced boot, of blucher cut. is generally
worn. Bat there are occasions upon which
the tie must to brought forth to make
our costume complete in its airiness and
daintiness. The most extravagant of wo
man-kind are not content with less than
a pair for every tostume. matching the
hue of the gown exactly in satin or kid.
But the less exhcl.imjstrive to be content
with one or two pairs that will not look
amiss with any light gown. One white
pair and one utn arc very satisfactory.
Or a red might be added. The red of
this season is a little duller and darker
than of old. therefore much more suited
to ordinary purposes.
Of course there are the pretty striped
and embroidered ones, iu the light kids
and cloths, that belong distinctively to
the summer ballroom. These are still
trimmed with ribbon and buckle. The
slipper' has generally a strap over the
instep, supporting the foot.
But. when all has been said upon this
subject, bring forth a maiden whose pretty
lcet arc covered with a line black s'.!.:
stocking, and encased in a close-fitting,
high black tie of kid. prettily tipped and
trimmed, and you will be able io find

Citizens of Knobnoster Spurred On by
a Sensational Rumor.
Sedalla, Mo., July 2.—A sensational ru
mor was put in circulation at Knobnoster,
where workmen are digging for $1,500,000
of gold that is believed to have bei n bur
ied more than half a century ago by Span
iards. The work is being prosecuted un
der the direction of William Covey, and
the rumor was that ho had located the
gold, but at once suspended operations
and set to work digging at another spot.
The gentlemen comprising the company
that is footing up the biils hurriedly
sought Mr. Covey for corroboration or
denial of the rumor. He promptly gave
them the latter. The work is still being
pushed and the enthusiasm of tho work
men has proved contagious, for nine out
of every ten residents of the town now bo
ll, vr that it is ably a question of a short
time until the treasure is unearthed.
Mr. Cove.v and his workmen put in their
time digging on the land of William Dun
lap, scarcely 100 yards from where the
skeletons were found years ago. Dunlap
is not as enthusiastic as some, and has
consented to turn over the entire find in
consideration of his being given 10 jier
cent of it. Other land owners are not so
liberal, however, and two of them have
demanded 50 per cent, without their being
put to a penny’s ex|>ense. while still others
are willing to accept 25 per cent, of the
total amount and surrender all claim to
the money. Passengers on every train
that passes through Knobnoster inquire
of the residents as to how the work is
progressing, and in the past four days the
diggings have been visited by hundreds of
strangers who have heard of the mysteri
ous burial of years ago.
Little Joe Is Thriving- and Growing—A
Larger Incubator Ordered.
New York, July 2 —Tiny Joseph Grc
vert, the babelet in the incubator at 315
East Twenty-sixth street, is thriving and
growing in his downy resting-place. He
is growing so fast that it was found
necessary to order a larger incubator for
him. The new one has an automatic at
tachment to regulate the heat, so that
Joe will not be subjected to dangerous
changes of temperature.
The midget weighed but two and one
halt pounds and was 13 inches long when
tie came into this cold world. Many
physicians have become interested in Joe,
his foster mother, and this new method
of saving a life that a puff might have

Undertakers Screwing Down the Collin
Lid When the Corpse Sat Up.
From the New York Sun.
St. Louis. June 30.—Charles Walker,

rant for $2,200.
Bridgetown, Pa., July 2.—Samuel Kell,
a glass blower, received a check for back
pension amounting to $2,212.60, and pro
cceded to celebrate the event by drinking
heavily. When his son Harry, who has
served a term in state prison for breaking
and entering, came home from work at
night and heard of the good fortune of
his father, he succeeded in getting the
check away, buying a quart of liquor for
the old man to further increase his ina
bility to care for himself. Young Kell,
in company with two cronies, skipped the
town, leaving unpaid board hills behind
and saying they were going to Mary's
Landing. The police and hanks have
been notified and an effort is being made
to apprehend the fugitives.

saved her life, us the sting of the tarantu
la is a deadly poison.
