Brooklyn, If. Y?The Rev. J. H. Lockwood.
pastor of the Naugatuck (Conn.) 3d.
E. Cnurch. preached Sunday morning in
? Grace M. E. Church in the absence of the
pastor, the Rev. Dr. John E. Adams. Mr.
Lockwood is well and favorably known in
Brooklyn and on Long Island, where lie
has held several pastorates. He was born
f and educated in Brooklyn and studied law
before he entered the ministry. He had
the distinction of being last year the only
' clerical member of the Connecticut Legislature.
He took for the subject of his
sermon, "Afterward." His text was from
Hebrews, xii:2: "Now no chastening, but
thp present seemeth to be joyous, but
grievous; nevertheless, afterward it yieldeth
the peaceable fruit of righteousness
unto them which are exercised thereby."
Mr. Lockwood said:

and its rich content of comfort you will
have caught the whole message of the sermon,
and you will possess a most valuable
solvent for life's perplexing, and often distressing.
problems.
Human life is a mysterious enir a that
v has successfully baffled the efforts persistently
made by the profoundest thinkers of
our race for its solution. "What is life?"
is the still puzzling question of questions.
As the biologists and their fellow scientists
have not succeeded in telling us just what
* that elusive thing we call physical life is,
neither have poets, proDhets, philosophers,
nor even philanthro- ;ts been able to tell
us adequately what real life is.
Here is this .strange thing we call life.
V with its many and varied phenomena, and
the more profoundly and comprehensively
we study it the more confused it leaves us.
There are experiences positively joyous and
0. experiences positively painful, and there
are experiences partially joyous and partially
painful, and we look at this great
masa of life's complex data and are auite
baffled to know the meaning of it all. Still,
with our hearts, as well as with our heads,
?'- intprrnca
we ask (ijam LUC IUI.|/iicoiU.V .?~-o?
tire, "What is life?"

9r, on the other hand, is it some splendid,
sweeping plan which we are in, working
out for us, the immortal participants, a far
more exceeding and eternal weight of glory
tkat shall thrill the soul forever? Have
we been but blind and stuoid workers at
the loom of time, weaving an imaginary
fabric that really had no existence, even as
"one that beateth the air," or are we actually
engaged in some real work of marvel^
ous design, whose pattern we see not clearly
and in all its comprehensive details, but
which our Master Workman knoweth well?
Let us look at the three proffered explanations
of life. First, there is the doleful
and distressing answer of philosophic pessimism
which assures us that things are
v sot^I* gft>wiag worse - all .the time, the
. world is rolling down hill and there are no
brakes that can be applied. The world
e. now is better than it will ever be hereafter.
It you like that view, accept it. No. we
must not say it so. Not, do von like it.
Hat is it true? That js the way to p.it;
for, pleasant or repugnant, we must accept
what is true. But this view cannot possibly
be true unless the proposition on which
it^iis based is also true, the proposition of
t the fool who said in his heart, ''There is no
God."
And in the second place we haVe the answer
of philosophic optimism, whieh assents
that things are eteadily getting bettap;
that, whereas life to-day is far better
taan it was 1000 or 10,000 years ago, it will
be far better 1000 or 10,000 years benoe.

each one of us is important in his or her
own sphere. All the offerings of the
wealthv in the courts of the temple o!
Jerusalem were well in their time and
amount. But the poor widow, who had
only her two mites, should not have felt
that her gift was unimportant. It seemed
as if Jesus sat watching and waiting for
that little offering; and the story of her
doing her part has been told the world
over in the centuries since then, as a lesson
and as an inspiration. Even though
our part is but a little one, God, as it were,
watches and waits for that.?Sunday

The Largor Life.
I am quite clear that one of our worst
failures is at the point where, haviug resolved
like angels, we drop back into the
old matter-of-fact life and do just what we
did before, because we have always done
it, and because everybody does it. and because
our fathers and mothers did it, all
of which may be the very re- on why we
should not do it. There is no station of
life, and no place of one's home, where, if
he want to enlarge his life in caring for
people outside himself, he may not start
on a career of enlargement which shall extend
indefinitely. And we shall find the
answer to our question to be that the man
who enters upon infinite purposes lives the
infinite life. He enlarges his life by every
experience of life.?Phillips Brooks.
I>aily Ditties.
I cannot say that the true pert of n
man, in relation to God, seems t me to
be, to give all that is claimed, and claim
nothing that is not given. And I profoundly
believe that whoever will cheerfully
surrender himself to the daily duty
and the prayer of faith, will not long be
left in the shadows, but will emerge into
a light which he knows to be divrne.?

for the perpetuation of pereqnality.
Where will you and I be when those far
. off improvements* of our race arrive? Thig
i materialistic philosophy offers us of the
) present no immortality, and hence no op^
/ portunity for the adjustment of life's presv
s ent glaring injustices. I am glad to be ieve
that the race that shall be resident here
1000 years from now will be a better raoe.
But I would like to be in existence somewhere,
too. when the better day dawns.
And even if I could rise to the superb un^
selfishness like unto that which poets some'*
* times sing when, temporarily, they happen
* to be in just .that mood, and could say I
was content to live and die and cease to
exist here or anywhere else if only, as a
result of my having lived a while, future
generations might be lifted a little higher:
^ stjB, one must feel that that pretty and.
1 after all, rather morbidly sentimental
scheme does not satisfy the imperative demands
of our souls that wrongs shall be
adequately righted, that innocent sufferers
shall be compensated and that outraged
helplessness shall be avenged.
Now comes Christianity, with its ample
v answer. It admits all the facts, the apparent
injustices of the present, the prosperity
of the unrighteous, the triumphing
of the wicked, and, on the ?ther hand, the
suffering and the seeming defeats of God's
heroes and saints in the fierce, hot contest
of life; and then it. speaks one, blessed
word," "Afterward!"- aid we can 'be paAfter
we have beard that divine word
we can see the wicked spread himself like
a, green bay tree, and still we "rest in the
Lord and wait"patiently for Him, and we
refuse to fret ourselves because of bim
who prospereth in his ways, because of the
man who bringeth wicked devices to pass."
The whole puzzling enigma of life is
? ^ solved at once when you hold the keyword,
and that word is the single word of the
text, "Afterward!"
.That is to say, you can get no satisfactory
explanation of this strange and somewhat
feverish thing we eall life, unless you
think of what is to follow. A noted American
orator, in a famous sentence of bis,
has told us that we have no lamp with
which to guide our feet in the future except
the experience of the past. He cont&ded,
and rightly, too. that we cannot
*Wnner]r estimate the future unless we
* faise our judgment on the experience of
the past. Now we may go on and supplement
Patrick Henry's familiar dictum by
saying that we have no lamp to reveal the
meaning of the present, except the light of
' t&e future. 1 ''"Afterward" is the word that
explains the mysterious disciplinings and
* ^ chastenings of the present. If j'ou will
grasp that word with firm, e'.hletio grip, it
will settle for you all these difficult problems
that so frequently confront your soul
afid disturb your heart.

idnce in life that all but shatters the very
. * foundations of faith?when you. 3oul falls

afterward;" and the soft, sweet beauty of
it shall solace your aching heart and the
^ peace of God shall once more flood your
semi.
If vou look at the lives of the great and
real neroes of our race you will find they
* gamed mighty power from the inspiration
of the future. They ker>t one eye on the
Afterward." Moses "had respect unto
;0 . v K*\\ v
tnc recompense of the reward." Paul
could ealm.v lav that wonderful head of
his on the block and pour out his life on
the high altar of martyrdom because of
the power of the "afterward" in his son!.
Even Jesus "endured the cross and despised
the shame for the joy that was set
before Him." And. my brethren, if vis
run with patience the race that is set Ik*
fore us, we must keeD looking forward,
looking unto Jesus, the Captain of our
salvation, who was made perfect through
suffering. This seems to be the divine ordei*?
first the dark, then the light; first
the cross, then the crown. And that cross
is temporary, the crown is eternal.
The late Dr. Maltbie Babcock said,
somewhat ingeniously, but vary helpfuliy,
that if you take the sharp, severe word,
"discipline." and discard the final "e."
which is of little or no value,, anyway, and
substitute a final "g." you have the tender
and gentle word "discipling." That is
really what the present chastenings mean
?you are being made a disciple?yon are
taking Christ's yoke upon you and learning
of Him as-He has invited you to do. You
are entering into the fellowship of His sufferings.
But. "beloved, if we suffer with
Him. we shall also reign with Him?afterward
!"
After all, how blank and dull, and sadly
monotonous life would be without its
crises of pain. The problem of Dain?how
it has vexed us and how pain has pained
us. and yet how it has enriched us! As
many a spice plant gives forth its most fragrant
perfume " only when bruised and
crushed, so a human heart does its best
r -* 1 of*-?,, enmo cnffpTl
ror otner numan hmuo ?
in? grief has visited it. Martinean said:
"A world without a contingency or an
avonv could have no hero and no saint.
There is uo epic of the certainties and no
lyric without the surprise of sorrow and
the sieh of fear. Whatever touches and
ennobles us in ti.e lives and voices of the
past is a divine birth from human doubt
and pain."
The sculptors have a maxim to the effect
that "all that is not statue must be
hewn away." At first our lives are like a
rough and quite meaningless block of marble.
with many a too sharp angle and many
a blemish. And as Michael Aneelo said of
tne stone thrown on the rubbish heap: "I
see an angel there anu I must get him
out." so God sees the best there is in you
and He is determined to bring 1; out. even
if He must needs use chisel and maljet.
Ana now the blows are struck, the chisel
cuts deep, the chips fly. "The more the
marble wastes the more the statue grows."
Thus continues the divine sculptor His
work and labor of love, until there stands
forth, afterward, r. elorione soul of majestic
dimensions and Christ'.ikc beauty.
" *Tis the Master who holds the chisel,
and day by day
He is chinning whatever environs the form
away,
That under His skilful cutting the form
may be
Wrought silently out into beauty, of such
degree
Of faultless and full perfection, that angel
eyes
Shall gaze on the finished product with
new Mimrisc.
That even His matchless patience cpuld
grave His own
Features upon such fractured and stubborn
cfn*\^ "
There is, unfortunately. another side to
this proposition. For the wicked as well
as for th? righteous there is an "afterward."
Over that melaneholy scene I
would gladly draw the curtain of complete
silence. I would fain hold my peace and
speak net at all of the wretched sequel
.which in the very nature of things must
be theirs who hurl defianee at- God's benevolent
laws for the souls of men.
Just as the tears ef the righteous now
shall afterward be transmuted into eternal
gems, sparkling forever in the light of
heaven, so the very gems of the wicked,
the tawdry tinsel ana trinkets and toys
that now seem so bright and attractive,
will be found, afterward, to be but the
perishable accessories of a mad nightmare
of revelry and rioting. The empty, idle
fallacies with which they sported here,
killing time and killing souls, shall afterward
become whips that lash them forever,
scorpions whose sting is eternal, tears that
are never wiped away, but which unceas?glv
ecald and scarify the soul like biting
ac'ds eating the heart forever.
For the devil's dupe the inevitable order
is just that?now ^ little temporary pleasure.
just enough to bait the soul successfully;
and afterward, desolation and anguish
indescribable. % *
So, to 9um it all up?what kind of an afterward
are you going to have? That depends
on what kind of a present you are
baring. Would you not prefer to suffer
afflictions with God's people and afterward
have glory unspeakable than to enioy the
pleasures of sin for a season, and afterward
suffer the inevitable aftermath of
despair? Say "yes" t,o that propositior
and I will say "Amen." N
Seeing; the Beauty.
Same persons are always looking for the
dark things of life, and of course they find
what they are looking for. Others are always
looking for the bright things, and
they find them. Bishop Nicholson, of Milwaukee,
relates that during the first yean
o. his ministry parish matters, social and
financial, were in a bad way. and straightening
them out was slow work. He wa?
much discouraged one day when, having
gone to New York on business, he stopped
to look at the Brooklyn Bridge, then
building. A man, covered with dirt, was
working on the abutments. "That's pretty
dirty work you arc engaged in." said the
bishop. "Well, yes," answered the laborer,
"but somehow we don't think of the dirt,
but of the beauty which is to come out oi
our work." "It was the lesson I needed."
says the bishop, "and I went back to Philadelphia
the better for it." It us" a. lesson
which we all need. Happy, indeed, will
he those who learn and apply it.?N. W

THE LOCAL NEWSPAPER.
tatereet* of Every Town Require Tbat it
Shall Be Supported.
It is to tlio interest of every town to
support a good newspaper, not through
local pride alone, but for practical
business reasons. A newspaper is conI
stantly doing ten times as much for
its town as it could ever hope to get
pay for?more than it could charge for,
if it would.
The more prosperous a paper is the
more it is able to do. Show us a good
weekly paper, full of live local ads.,
with a general circulation throughout
the county, and we will show you an
up to date, prosperous, progressive
community.
Show us a community that persistently
proceeds on the idea that the editor
of the home paper can live on the
"pi" that accumulates in the office,
whose official bodies think it a waste
of public money to throw him a bit of
public printing occasionally at living
prices, whose citizens have come to regard
it as one of their inalienable
rights to worh: him for long-winded
obituary notices and "in memoriams,"
with three inches of hymn book poetry
at the end, to say nothing about an occasional
notice of a lost cow or some
cotton seed for sale, and we will show
you a community that is living from
hand to mouth and is always on the
ragged edge of adversity.
People ought to stop to think about
these things. It is an important matter.
It is their own good that is involved,
the welfare and progress of
their community, therefore of themselves.
A local newspaper is absolutely necessary
to any community. No merchant,
no grand jury, no town council
that spends every year all it can afford
with the home paper, whether that expenditure
is actually necessary or not,
makes a wiser, more profitable investment.
.
They are not "giving" the home
paper something. On the contrary, it
is earning every cent it gets, and more,
providing it is a paper-worth picking
up in the road.
And if it isn't that sort of paper it is
usually the fault of the town in which
it is published.?Atlanta Constitution.

particles that emanate from the object
which the dog is tracking? Yet matter
is extremely divisible. The tenth part
of a grain of musk will continue for
years to fill a room with its odoriferous
particles, and at the end of that time
will not be appreciably diminished in
weight by the finest balance. A cubic
inch of air rising from the flame of a
Bunsen burner has been found to contain
no fewer than 489,000,000 dust particles.
A drop of blood whichf might
be suspended from the point of a
needle contains about a million of red
flattened corpuscles. Still, though matter
is marvelously divisible, the olfactory
nerves are infinitely more sensi
tive.
Much has yet to be Investigated with
regard to the differentiation of the
points in these nerve so that they may
discriminate with such apparent miraculous
accuracy; yet even the results
in the scent of dogs show how marvelously
fine is their discriminating
power. Our sense of smell, unless in
the trained chemist, is not even so
acute as that of the semi-savage. The
aborigines of Peru can, in the darkest
night and in the thickest woods, distinguish
respectively a white man, a
negro and one of their own race by the
smell. Much we have gained by civilization;
but not without some loss to
our bodily energies and senses. Man's
recuperative power after an injury is
in the inverse ratio to- his social advancement.
Similarly he seems to become
less acute and delicate in the
sense of smell as he fares better and
lives more comfortably. The faithful
dog puts him to shame.?London Mail.
Pepper's Success.
The late William S. Pepper used to
take great delight in telling the following
story on himself:
! "I was bought up in the country, but
I from a very early period in my life 1
determined to go away to tne ciry soxuu
day to become a big man there. An
old neighbor, a great friend of my
father, professed a strong liking for
me and always-declared that I was
gcing to be a successful man. He told
it all over the country that Billy Pepper
had good stuff in him and was
bound to succeed.
"Time wore on and I did go away to
the city and met with a measure of
success. My old friend, when he heard
that I owned a hotel, remarked that
he had told folks so, and announced j
his intention of paying me a visit.
"He had never been in town, so I
wrote him when he got here to ask
for the City Hall, and to come right
down here from the station. He did
so. When he reached the City Hall
he entered and roamed about the big
corridors and np and down the steps
id perfect amazement. Finally he remarked
to himself, as he afterward
told me, 'Well, I always knew that
Pepper would get ahead in the world,
but I'm blamed if i thought he'd ever
own anything like this.' "?Baltimore

MOVING SAND KILLS.
Curious Sight Witnessed by Bronx i
Botanists on Bolivian Expedition.
One of the most curious sights observed
in his recent Bolivian expedi- j
tion, according to R. S. Williams of j
the staff of the Bronx Botanical Gar- i
dens, was the moving sandhills in the
desert between Mollendo and Lake
Titicaca. This desert, which has an
altitude of 4,000 feet, extends over
many hundreds of square miles. Except
about the stations, there is an
absolute lack of living things?not a
bush, shrub, or animal?to be seen as
the train wends its way through the
waste; not even the occasional swordlike
grass that one meets with in
most other desert countries.
However, the monotony of an otherwise
tiresome trip was broken by the !
unique sight of the crescent shaped |
Sana aunes, waicn ouen auainea nuy
feet in length, moving slowly along
before the light breeze. Not one, but
hundreds of them; every direction
in which one looked from out the car
window he was confronted with these
restless sand dunes, and the experience
was so novel that it rather unsettled
the botanist's ideas of the
solidness of Mother Earth.
"Apparently," explained Mr. Williams,
"the higher winds on the vast
plateau all blow from one direction
and sift out the light colored sand,
lighter also in weight, from the darker
sand and rocks that compose most
of the desert, and piles this lighter
sand into more or less crescent shaped
hills that advance slowly with the
wind as it blows the sand on the exposed
side over the crest of the sheltered
side of the pile. The hills,
moreover, not only stand out clearly
defined over the darker surface, but
their windward eide is covered all
over by the most delicate tracery of
little waves, much similar to those
produced on water by a slight breeze,
and they are so numerous that a little
distance away the outline of one hill
becomes merged into that of its neighbors
on either site."?New York
Times.

PPY WOMEN"
Thank Pe-ru-na for Their
Recovery After Years of
Suffering. Jf

Miss Muriel A fruitage, 30 Grecnwapd
Av??.t Detroit, Mich., District OrgOTliCf
of the Koy.il Templars of Temperance*
iti a recent letter, says:
"[ think that a woman naturally
shrink* from making her troubles pUDlic,
but restored health h-s meant somuch
to ma that 1 feel for the Kike -of
other suffering: women it is my duty to
tell what i'eruna has done for me.
"I suffered for five years with uterine
irregularities, which brought on hysteria
m# :i nhvsical wreck. 1 tried
doctor* from the different school* of , ^
medicine, bat without any perceptible
chance in my condition. In my despair ' , 1
called on an old nurse, who advised
me to try Per una, and promised (root! re-;
suits if I would persist and take it regularly.
I thought this was the least .1
could do, aro nrocured a bottle. 1 knqmr
as soon as I began taking it tilat it wa#
affecting me differently from anything
1 had used before, and so 1 kept on taking
it. I kept this up for six month*, '^*3
and steadily gained strength and health, and
when I nad used fifteen bottles X
considered myself entirely cured. I apt
a grateful, happy woman to-day."?Miss
Muriel Armitage.
Peruna cures catarrh of the pelvic organs
with the same surety as it cures t
I catarrh of the head. Peruna has bp|
come renowned as a positive cure for
I female ailments, simply because the ?1- :
ments are mostly due to catarrh. Catarrh
ie the cause of the trouble. Peruna
cures the catarrh. The symptom* rfs
! disappear.
If ill enough to go to bed, but she is far H
am being able to do her work without . yjjft
e greatest exhaustion. This is a very
mraon sight, and is almost always due to v-ljjjigB
Ivic catarrh. /
It is worse tnan foolish for so many yM
}men to suffer year after year with a diase
that can be permanently cured.
Peruna cures catarrh permanently. It
res old chronic cases as well as a slight >
tack, the only difference being in the
agth of time that it should be taken to
feet a cure.
If you do not derive prompt and satisfapry
results^ from the use of Peruna? write
once to in*, ttartman, giving a iuu lias-cent
of your case and he will be pleased to
re yau his valuable advice gratis.
