A drydock 1 a huge basin In which a vessel may bo placed and from which tho water can be exhausted in order to oxihijo her hull for inspection, cleaning and tv pair. Its sides are sloping and arranged In steps like, an amphitheater. Kutrnuco Is etTifted through a pa-.ige that can Iki eli.M'd. Tho big Hrooklyn dock is SOU feet long when the eal$on that closes the en trance Is In place, KU) feet wide at tho top and only Ml feet at tho liottom and has a depth that Insures i.ViJj feet of water on her threshold, or sill, at mean high tide. It Is a far uioru delicate job to put a ves sel Into a dryduek properly than the un initiated imagine. I pon the precision with which this undertaking Is carried in to execution depends the ory life of tho ship. An error of a few Inches may re sult In Injuries that will cost thousands of dollars to repair, If they do not hopelos-ly ruin her. The aim of the ollleer hi charge of this work Is to get the ship In such a position that when the water Is pumped out of the basin she will sink down on to a series of carefully arranged blocks alotig the central line of the dock. The Ore gon, tor I li 'I. nice, has a displacement of about 10,000 tons, and her weight Is all homo on ST0 of these supHjrts, called "keel blocks." This Is alwut ISO tons to a block; hence tho need of evenly distrib uting a vecel"s Weight on these blocks. The outline of one ves-el ditTers (mm another, however, and an arrangement of blocks that would exactly suit ono would be sure to wtvvk another, it Is. custom ary, therefore, at na.il docks to preparo an elaborate "docking plan," In advance whenever a ship is to bo docked. Draw lugs of the vessel herself are can-fully con sulted In order to ascertain the precise shape and length of her keel, tho position of the struts that support her screws (If she bo n twin screw vessel), her rudder and her bilge keels. If she has any. The ollleer in charge of tho task he belongs to thoconstructlon bureau also has meas urements of the dock Into which the ves sel Is going. He then innkcs a plan In which the pesltion of thu ship Is predeter mined toa:i inch tea tenth of an Inch, In fact. The keel blocks are all arranged In i'dvntico. On cither side of the dock on the stone coping chalk marks aro placid ti Indicate whorv her bow and stern are to i o:ne.

In eaoshe Is tilted over, even slightly, to one side this ditlleulty Is over come by shifting the weights on loard Iv fore the pumping out of the water lets tbo ship como down on her supsirts. From the sides of the deck against each side of the vessel are adjusted spars, called "shores." These occupy a nearly hori zontal position and are designed to pre vent tipping over sideways when the ship llnnlly rests on tlio keel blocks. If the ship is evenly bnlaur Ml. the shores, will pass very gently against her, lint if she Is not properly balanced there Is danger that they may punch hole-s In her sides. It takes about two or three hours to pump out the small granite dock at tlio JJrooklyn yard and about live hours to empty tho big tlmlter dock. As soon as tho water la out the ship's sides are care fully examined. Men on scitfoliN that swing from her sides scrape otl the tiny sualUhell-Uke barnacles and the long, hairy weed that they find there. This Is done with n bruh in which the bristles am of wire. Whenever, as rarely happens, the surfucoof a ship is found to lv corrod ed a sand blast Is unployed to clean tho surface, but this operation is ecraUy ami is seldom needed. Two or three coats of paint are then ap plied in rapid succession, special composi tions being Used that dry quickly. Ono of these is designed to protect tint platea from corrosion and gt es next tho metul. Tho outermost coat Is Intended to prevent or dUcourngo fouling. Various trilling or Important rvpalrs are made while the t-hlp Is in dock, and If any great weights are to lie removed and restored a huge der rick is brought Into play. The cleaning and painting can bo done Inside of ;t hours, and It there Is a hurry electric lights can be placed so ns to enable men to work under tho ship as well at night as by day. Removal, like admission, must lx con ducted at high tide. Tho dock Is gradu oily tilled. The shores are taken away, and thoshlp Is held In placeonly by moor ing Hues. As the water comes iu she Is lifted otT tho blocks, Some of the water In tho hollow caisson that dams the en trance is al-o puuied out to Ihwt It. The caisson Is swung out of the way, and then the ship is cautiously hauled out. New York Tribune. So Mirenwtle, Willie I onco knew a girl who nearly died from leo cream isdsoning.

Hut my Men now is to speak chiefly of , talk ot heaven as though It wero an old ...u .. city, Mulshed wnturles ago, when I have to tell you that no city on earth during the last CO years has had such changes as heaven. It Is not tho samo place as when Job nnd David and Paul wrote of It. For hundreds and hundreds ot years It has been tfolng through pencoful revolution, nnd year by year, anil month by month, and hour by hour, nnd moment hy moment It Is changing, and changing for some thing better. Away back there was only ono residence In tho universe tho resi dence of the Almighty. Heaven had not yet been started. Immensity was tho park all around about this great residence, but God's sympathetic heart after a while over flowed in other creations, nnd thero came all through this vast country of Immensity Inhabited villages, which grew nnd en larged until they joined each other ami iH-eameono great central metropolis of tho unler.-e, stnetcd, gated, templed, water ed, Inhabited. Onon'.igel went forth with a reed, wo are told, and ho measured heav en on ono side, nnd then lie went forth and measured heaven on tho other side, ; and then Ht. John tried to take the census of that city, nnd ho became so bewildered that he pave it up. Improvement,, In llenven. That brings nm to thu first thought of my theme that heaven is vastly Improved in numbers. Noting llttlo under this head about tho multitude of adults who have gone Into glory during tho last 100 or fiOO or 1,000 years, I remember thcroaro 1,1500, -000,000 of jieoplo in tlio world, and that the vast majority of people die in infamy How many children must have gone into heaven during tho last fiOO or 1,000 yenrs. If New York should gather iu one genera tion 1,000,000 population, if Imdnli should gather in one generation LOOO.OOti . population, what a vast Increase. Hti' what n mere nothing as compared with tho S00, 000,000, tho 2,000.000,000, tho "multitude that no man can number," thnt have gone into that city. Of course all this takes for granted that every child that dies goes ns straight Into heaven as ever tho light sliced from a star, nnd that Is ono reason why heaven will always be fresh and beautiful tho great multitude of children In it. Put 600,000,000 chil dren In a country, it will bo a blessed and llv.iy country. Hut add to this, If you will, tho groat multitude of adults who have gone Into glory, and how tho census of heaven must run up. Many years ago a clergyman stood in n New F.nglnnd pulpit and said that ho beliovcd thnt tho vast majority of the raco would llnnlly bo destroyed, and that not moro than ono person out of 2,000 persons would bo finally saved. Thero happened to bo about 2,000 peoplo In tho villago whero ho preached. Next Snhliath two persons were beam discussing tho subje.t and wondering which ono of the 2,000 itcoplo in tho village would finally reach heaven, and cno thought It would bo tho minister, nnd tho other thought It would be the old deacon. Now, I have not much admiration for a lifeboat which will go out to it sinking ship with 2,000 passengers nnd get ono off in safety and let l,0'.iy go to the bottom. Why, heaven must have been a village when Abel, tho first soul from earth, entered it as com pared with tho present population of that great city! Into that good land about which you havo I!vrn Ilcnvcn Mnt Chnntre. been thinking, praying and talking so Again, I remark that heaven has vastly many years. Now, bo patient. 1 could seo Improved in knowledge.

Tho for thou-ands of years studying God and I plnco Is Improving all tho tlmo." Now, I tho soul and immortality and tho universe! How the intelligence ot thnt world must sweep on nnd on, with eyesight farthor reaching than telescope, with power of calculation mightier than all human math- ematlcs, with jiowers of analysts surpass - ing all chemical laboratory, with speed swifter than telegraphy 1 What must heav en learn with all these ndvnntugcs In a month, In a yeur, In a century, in a mil lennium?

Supimso that Hubert McCheyno and John Sum morfleld should ho added to your earthly cirelo; hut heaven has gathered up all tho faithful and earnest ministry ot tho just, Thero Is not a town, or a city, or a village that hns so Improved In society In the last 100 years as heaven has Improved. A Choline of IlfKroc Only. Hut you sny, "Hasn't hravoh always been perfect?" Oh, yes, hut not In tho sense that It cannot he augmented. It has been rolling on In grandeur. Christ has been there, and ho never changes tho same yostcrdny, today ami forever, glori ous then nnd glorious now and glorious forever. Hut I spoalc now of attractions outsui(, uf this, and I have to tell you that no tilnco on earth has Improved In society as heaven has within tho last 70 years, for tho most of you within 40 years, within SO years, within 6 years, wltlrin 1 year in other words, by tho accessions from uvour own househohl.

Again, I remark thnt heaven has great ly Improved in the good ehierof announc ed victories. Where heaven rejoiced over ..., snlli i, .,,.. ri.llli.s 11V1,P k,o or l.tiou j,, tho cjden times, when tlio events of ),umnn life wero scattered over four or flvo centuries oi longevity nun tno worm moved slowly, there were not so many stirring events to bo reported In heaven, but now, I suppose, all tho great events of earth are reported in heaven. If thero is any truth plainly taught iu this Utble, It is that heaven is wrapped up in sym pathy with human history, and wo look ut those Inventions ot tlio day ut teleg raphy, at swift communication by steam, at all theso modern Improvements which seem to glvo ono almost omnipresence and wo see only tho secular relation, but spirits before tho throne look out nnd sco the vast ami tho eternal relation. While nations rise and fall, while tho earth Is shaking with revolution, do you not sup pose thero is arousing intelligence going up to the throne of God, and that tho question Is often asked bjforo the throne, "What Is tho news from that world that world that rebelled, but Is coming back to its allegiance?" If ministering spirits, nifordlng to the Hlble, aro sent, forth to minister to thosu that shall bo holrs of heaven, when they conin down to us to bless us, do they not take the news back? p,, ,ll0 j.hips. ,lf light that come out of tho celestial harlx'r Into the earthly harbor, laden with cargoes of blessing, go back unfrelghted? Ministering spirits not only, but our loved ones! leaving us, take tip tho tidings. Suppose you were In a far city and had been thero a good while, nnd you heard that some one had a'rrlvcd from your native place some ono who had re cently seen yuur family and friends you would pish up to that man, and you would ask all about the old folks nt home. And do you not suppose when your child went up to God jour glorltled kindred In heaven gathered around and asked about you to u-certalu as to whether you wero getting along well in tho struggle of life, to tind out whrther you were In any especial peril, that with swift and mighty wing they might come down to intercept yourpcrils? Oh, yes! Heaven Is a greater place for news than It Used to lie news sounded through the streets, news ringing from tho towers, news heralded from the palace gate. Glad news! Victorious news! The I'utnre Hem ell. Hut the vivacity and sprightllncss of heaven will bo beyond all concept lou when thellnal victories como in, when the churrh shall Im triumphant everywhere. Oh, what a day In heaven It will bo when tho last throne of earthly oppression hns fallen, when the lost chain of serfdom is broken, when tho last wound of earthly pain Is healed, when thu last sinner is pardoned, i when the last nation Is redeemed! What a tlino thero will bo in heaven! You and I will bo In the procession, you and I will thrum a string iu that great orchestra. Thnt will bo tho greatest day iu heaven sinco tho day when tint first block of jas per was put down for tho foundation and the tlrst hinged pearl swung. If there U a difference between heaven now and heav en as It was, oh, the dltference betweou heaven as it shall bo ami heaven as It li now! Not a splendor stuck fast, hut roll ing on nnd rolling on, and rolling up and ' rolling up, forever, forever. I Now, I say theso things about the j changes In heaven, about the new Im provements iu heaven, for throe stout rea tons. First, because I find thatsomoot you aro Impatient to lie gone. You are ( tired of this world, and yon want to get want you to apply tho same principle In this matter of reaching heaven and leav ing this world. Not one glory Is to lie subtracted, hut many glories added. Not one angel will be gone, not one hlerarch 1 gone, not ono of your glorltled friends gone, ny tno long practicing tno music will lie better, tho procession will lie lon ger, tho rainbow brighter, tho coronation grander. Heaven, with mngnllicent ad denda! Why will you complain when you ure only waiting for something better? Another reason why I speak In regard to the ahnuges in heaven and tho now Im provements in hunven is because. I think It will be a consolation to busy and enter- lsln(? KOO(l . ' u, I seo very well that - , y not tnMo f(1P lu I . . . . was nil done and finished centuries ago. After you havo lioen active 40 or AO or 00 years It would be a shock to stop you sud denly and forever, but here is a progressive heaven, an over accumulative heaven, vast enterprise on foot there beforo tho throne of God. Aggrosslvo knowledge, aggressive goodness, aggressive power, ag gresslvo grandeur. You will not have tu como nnd sit down on the banks of tho river ot lite In everlasting Inoccupation. Oh, busy men, I tell you of n heaven whero thero Is something to do. That is the meaning of the passago, "They rest not day nor night," In tho Iniy sense ot rest ing. Tbe Oil! Knahlnnrd llenven. I speak theso words on tlio changes In heaven and the now improvements in heaven also because I want to euro some of you of tho delusion that your departed Christian friends hava gono Into dullness and sllenco nnd unconsciousness. The aro Iu a sirring, picturesque, radiant, evei accumulative scone. When they lett theli bodies, they only got rid ot tha. lait hln drauce. They nro no moro in OaUwood Laurel IIIU or Mount Auburn than you In holiday attire, having touted youricl nt n banquet, can bo said to bo In a dark closot, whero. you have lett the old apparel thnt was not. in to wear to tno n.iuq,. A soldier cannot use a sword until he. In unsheathed It, and tho body of your d parted was only tho sheath of a bright an glittering spirit which God has lifted an Is swnylng In thu heavenly triumph. At ordlng to what I am telling you nt pre tut, your departed Christian friends di not go so much Into the company of tli martyrs, and the npoitle, and the proph ats, and tho potentates of heaven ns Int tho company of grandfather nnd grand mother nnd tho Infant sister that tnrrlet just long enough to absorb your tundcres! affection nnd nil tho homo circle. Whel they landed, It was not as you land it. Antwerp or Hamburg or Havre, wander lug up a strange wharf, looking at strnngi fnces, asking for a strange hotel. The;, landed amid your glorified relatives, win. were watting to greet them. Oh, does not this bring heaven nearer? Instead of being fur off ltcoiuesdown just now, ni. ' It puts Its arms around our necks, in..! wo feel Its breath on our faces It melts the frigid splendor of tho conven tional heaven Into a domestic scene. It comes very close to us. If wo had our choice In heaven, whom would wo llrt sec? Hnther than look at tho great poten tates of heaven wo would meet our loved ones. I want to seo Moses and Paul and Joshua, but I would a great deal rather see my fnthcr, who went nway '.10 yenrs ago. I want to see the great Hlblo hero lues, Deborah and llunnah nnd Abigail, but 1 would rather seo my mother than to see tho archangel. Ida Hot think it was superstitious when one Wednesday night I stood by a death bed within a few blocks of tho church whero I preached, ami on tho same street, and saw ono of tho nged Christians of the church going Into glory. After I had prayed with her I sold to her: "We have all loved you very much and will always cherish your memory In the Christian church. You will sco my soli before I tee him, and 1 wish you would give him our love." .-she s.dd. ' I will. I will," and In 20 minutes n.-i was In heaven the la-t, words she ever spoke. It was u swift mes sage to the skies. If you had your choice between riding in u heavenly chariot and occupying tho grandest pnlaco in heaven and sitting on the throne next highest to tho throne of (jo.1 nnd not siring your de parted ones, and on the other hand duell ing In the humblest place In heaven, with out crown or throne and without garland and without scepter, yet having your loved ones around you, you would choose the latter. I say these things because I waul you to know it Is ii domestic heaven, am! consequently it is all thu time improving Lvcry one that goes up makes it a bright er place, and tho attractions are Increas ing month by month and day by day, and heaven, so vastly more ot a heaven, a thousand times more ot a heaven, than it used to be, will be a better heaven yet Oh, I say this to intensify jour nntlclpa tlon. At (he I'liinl Day. I enter heaven ono d-iy. It Is nlmot empty. I enter the temples of worship, mid theronre no worshipers. I walk down the street, and thero aro no passengers. 1 go Into the orchestra, and I Und tho In strumeiits ar suspended In the baronial halls ot heat-on, and tho great organs ut eternity, with multitudinous banks of keys, re clc.-ed. But I see a shining one at thu gate, as though lie were standing on guard, and I. say: "Sentinel, whnt dues this menu? I thuttght heaven was a pop ulous city. Has thero been some great plague sweeping itf tho population' "Have you not heard the news?'' says the sentinel. "Th.-re is a world burning, there is a great cuull.igratlon out yonder, and all heaven has gone out to look nt the conllagratlou und take the victims out of the ruins. This Is thu day tor which nil other days are made. This is the judg ment. This morning all the chariots and thocavalry and the mounted infantry rum- bleil and galloHil down the sky." After I had listened to thu sentinel I looked olf over the battlements, and I saw that the fluids ot air wero bright with a blazing world. I said, "Yes, yes, this must be the judgment," and while I stood there 1 heard the tumbling of wheels and the , cluttering ot hoofs and thu roaring of ( many voices, and then I saw the coronets nnd plumes and banners, and I saw that all heaven was coining back again com ing to the wall, coming tithe gate, and thu multitude that went nu in the morn ing was augmented by a vast multitude caught nil alive from thei rth and a vast multitude of tho rcstim-cud bodies of the Christian dead, leaving the cemeteries and the abbeys, and the mausoleums, and the graveyards of the earth empty. Proces sion moving iu through tho gates. And then I found out that what was fiery judg ment day on eurth was jubilee in heaven, and I cried: " Doorkeepers of l.e.iven, shut thu gates; nil heaven has come In! Door koeiters, shut the 12 gates lest the sorrows and thu woes of earth, like bandits, shuuld soma day come up and try to plunder the city!" Ah1ii on MenitiMlilii.
