During the summer months the tenden cy Is to tho ileitis, to visitation, to foreign travel and the watering places, and tho ocean steamers mo thmnged, but in tho winter it Is rather to gather lit domestlo t circles, and during these months wo spend . many of tho hours within doors, and tho apoatlo conies to tis and nays that we might I to exercise Christian behavior amid all such circumstances. "Let them learn ilr.st 1 to show piety at home." i T'lero are n great many peoplo longing for some grand sphere In which to servo Hod Thoy ndmlro Luther ut the diet of Worms and only wish that they had somo j Mich great opportunity In which to ills- I play thsir Christian prowes. Thcyadniiro 5 mil making Felix tremble, and tlu only . wish that they hud homo such grand ocea- ' slon in which to preach righteousness, , temperanco and judgment to come. All. they want is tut opportunity to exhibit Vkc'ir Christian heroism. Now, the npnMlo practically says: "I will shew you a place whore you can exhibit all that Is grand ond beautiful and gloiiotis In Cltilstlan chnructcr, and that Is the domestic circle. ' Let them learn first to show piety at ' homo " If ono Is not faithful in an insig nificant sphere, he will not be faithful in a resounding sphere. If I'eter will not , help tho cripplo at the gate of tho temple, he will never bo able to preach 11,000 into tho kingdom at tho Pentecost. If Paul , will not take pains to Instruct in the way of salvation the jai'or of tho Phlllppian dungeon, ho will never niuk Felix trem- i 1 le. Ho who is not faithful in a skirmi-di , would not bo faithful in an Armageddon. The fnet Is, wo are all placed In ju-t the position in which wo can most grandly servo God, and wo ought not to be ohielly thoughtful about some sphere of useful ni'ss which wo may after awhilo gain, but the all absorbing question with you and with mo ought to lie, "Lord, what wilt thou have mo now and here to do?" An Kirenslve "Word. Thero is ono word in St. Paul's adjura tion around which tho most of our thoughts will revolve. That word is "home." Ask ten different men the mean ing of that word, and they will give you ten different definitions. To ono It means lovo at the hearth, plenty at the table, in dustry at the workstund, intelligence at tho books, devotion at tho altar. In that household discord nevor sounds Its war whoop and deception never tricks with its false f ice. To him it means a greeting at the i! or and a smilo at tho chair, peace hovering like wings, joy clapping its hands with laughter. Llfo is a tranquil lake. Pillowed on tho ripples sleep thd shadows, Ask another man what homo Is, nnd ho will tell you it is want looking out of a cheerless lire grate, kueadlng hun ger in an empty broad tray. Tho damp air shivering with curses No lilblo on tho shelf. Children robbers and murder ers in embryo Obcccno songs their lulla by Kvery face a pictuio of ruin. Want in tho background and bin staring from the front. No Sabbath wave rolling over thatdoorsill. Vestibule of tho pit. Shadow of Infernal walls. Furnace for forging everlasting chains. Fagots for an unend ing funeral pile. Awful word. It is spelled with curses, it weeps w.th ruin, it chokes with woe, it swears with tho death agony of despair. Tho word "homo'' in tho ono case means eerytliing bright Tho word "home" In the other case means everything terrilic. I shall speak now of home as a test of character, homo as n refuge, homo as n, political safeguard, homo as a school and homo as a typo of heaven. And in tho lirit place homo is a powerful tet of char acter. Tho disposition in public may bo in guy costume, while In private it Is dlthabillo. As play actors may appear in ono way on tho stage and may appear in another way behind the scenes, so prlvato character may bo very different from pub lie character. Private character is often public character turned wrong Bido out , A man may reeeivo you into Ids parlor as though he were n distillation of smiles, and yet his heart may bo a swamp of net lies There aro business men who all day long aro mild and courteous and genial and good natured in commercial life, damming back their irritability and their petulance and their discontent, hut at nightfall tho dam breaks and scolding pours forth in Hoods and freshets. Iteputatlon is only tho bhadow of char actor, and a very small house sometimes will cast a very long shadow. The lips may seem to drop with myrrh and cassia nnd the disposition to bo as bright and warm as a sheath of sunbeams, and yet they may only bo a magnificent show win dow for a wretched stock of goods. Thero is many a man who is atrablo in public life and amid commercial spheres who in a cowardly way takes his anger and his pctulnneo home and drc.ps them in tho domestic circle Tho reason men do not display their bad temper in public is be cause they ilo not want to bo knocked down, Thero aro men who hide their petulanco and their irritability just for tho same reason that they do not let their notes go to protest It does not pay or tor tho samo reason that they do not want a man in their stock company to sell his Hock below par lest it depreciate the value. Miotv I'lety nt Home. As at sunset sometimes tho wind rises, so after a sunshiny day thero may bo a tempestuous night 'i here are peoplo who in public act tho philanthropist who at homo act tho Nero with respect to their slippers mid their gown Audubon, the great ornithologist, with gun and pencil went through tho forests of America to bring down and to sketch tho beautiful birds, nnd after years of toll nnd exposure completed his manuscript and put It In a trunk In Philadelphia and went off for u few days of reereation nnd rest and camo back and found that tho rats had utterly destroyed the manuscript, but without any discomposure and without any fret or bad temper ho again picked up Ids gun and his pencil and visited ngain all tho great forests of America and reproduced, his immortal work And yet there nro peoplo with tho ten-thousandth part that loss who aro utterly irreconcilable, who at tho loss of a pencil or an artlelo of raiment will blow as long and loud and sharp as a northeast storm Now, that man who Is affablo in publlo nnd who l.i lrrltablo in private is maklnga fraudulent and overissue of stock, anil ho Is as bad as a bank that might have $100,000 or friOO.OOOof bills in circulation with no siieelo in tho vault. Let us learn to show piety at home. If wo have it not there wo havo It not anywhero. If wo have not gonulnu grace In tho family circle, all out outward and publlo plausibility merely springs from tho fear of the world or fron, tho slimy, putrid pool of our own selfish ness. I tell you tho homo Is a mighty tesi 'of character. What you nro at homo yon nro everywhere, whether you demonstrate it or not. 'A nieaaed Harbor.

It was not the tropics, although eire than tropical fruitfulness filled the . 1 dens. It was not Italy, although more i,tn Italian softness filled tho air. And 1 .mdered around looking for thorns nnd ' ttles, but I found that 110110 of them ivw there, and I saw the sun rise, and I utched to see it set, but it sank not. And saw tho peoplo in holiday attire, and 1 dd, "When will they put oil this nnd put n workmen's garb and ngain delve in tin duo and swelter at the forge?"

And I was bewildered, and I Kit lown under tho branches of a great tre Hid I said, "Whero am I und whence 'nines all this scene?" And then out from imong tho leaves and up the flowery paths and across tho broad streams there came a beautiful group thronging all about me and as I saw them como I thought I knew their step, and as they shouted I thought I knew their voices, but then they wero so gloriously arrayed in apparel such as 1 had never b'eforo witnessed that I bowed 'is stranger to stranger Hut when again 'hey clapped their hands and shouted Welcome, welcome!" the mystery all van Ished, and I found that time had gone and eternity had come and wo were aU togeth er again in our now home in heaven, and I lookcxl around, and 1 said, "Aro wo all here?" nnd tho voices of many generations responded, 'All hero!

In battlo H10 aid carries orders under (iro nnd often guides or lends tho col umn on a charge. Washington wns an aid when ho navrd Hraddock'n nrmy from destruction nt Mouongnlieln. Ncl son A. Jliles won his first promotion i.s I an aid to General Howurd, and Custer first gnined distinction 011 tho staff of McClellnn. A Spanish revolver in the hands of n wounded don, who lny welt ering in his blood near Sun Juan block houso, made a staff hero out of Lieu tenant Qaresclio Ord of tho Sixth regu lars. Young Ord was tho son of (Jen- ernl B. O. 0. Ord, n well known arm 1 leader who died of fever in lluvan. homo years ago. Tho general's name sake, Lieutenant K. O. C. Ord of the Twenty-second infantry, served in Cuba also. Gnroscho Ord wns on tho stnff of General Hawkins. Ho was conspicnons all the morning in the bloody San Junn basin, whero ho risked his lifo more than onco to get information about the Spanish positions and the ways to get at them. When tho Sixth and Sixteentl regiments reached tho lording place following, not lending, tho general and his staff Ord was just coming from the front, where ho had climbed a tall tree for n good look at the blockhouse. "Hoys, you can tuke it in 30 minutes," he said. It was three hours or such a matter beforo these troops crossed tho Spanish trenches, and when they did Ord wns ono of tho foremost. Thero was another stnfE officer con spicuous at tho ford, nnd beforo noting what happened to Ord it is well to havo n glanco nt General Shatter's "man for the hour," Liontunant J. D. Sliloy. When these samo troops of Hawkins began to cross tho creek, the Spaniards were pouring in Mausers nt a very lively rate, and Miley stood on tho bank nearest tho Spanish lines. Ho is n tall, slim fellow of about 130, a hober, earn est Bchoolmnsterish sort of u soldior who wouldn't laugh without tho best of causes. Ho stood in viow of the lino in direct range of tho bullots, swinging his hands and clapping them gleefully while ho kept up a firo of comment to encourage the men. "That's all right!" (Meaning the bullets overhead.) "Tho Spanish aro simply wasting their am munition, that is nil." Soon it got too hot for him even, nnd ho strodo away under tho bank, onying with n smile, "I'd better bo getting out of it, though." Thero was inoro work for Miley to do that day 11s Shafter's representative, and ho is to bo met with all along tho lino in the narintives of tho soldiers. There is n story afloat in the army that Ord said to a coiurado that morn ing, "I'll como out, of this a colonel or a corpse," but his companion officers deny this and sny it is unlike Ord. Ho wns capable of rashness under excite ment, but not given to bruvado. Tho story of Ord's gallantry nnd death was given 1110 by his companion officers of tho Sixth. After tho brigado had been under firo n conplo of hours or more, it reached tho shelter of a "bench" in tho hillside well toward tho crest. Somo confusion in tho lines took plaeo owing to the thick high grass, tho barbed wiro fences nnd other ob structions, and Ord, teeing a dotnehed band of men a little ahead o4 tho rest making ready for tho final rush, asked Hawkins' permission to join it. Haw kins assented under tho spur of tho prevailing excitement, but said after ward that ho had it on his lips to re call tho words. However, ho did not, and Ord kept on at the head of nil. When tho handful reached tho trench, Ord sawn wounded Spaniard, and with gestures told his men to tuke good euro of the luckloss foeman. Evidently tho Spaniard misunderstood tho gesture, uud tho words wero also unintelligible to him. Ho drew a revolver nnd shot Ord dead. Ord's companions shot tho Spaniard, a natural net of revougo un der tho circumstances. Lieutenant Miley received praise out tide of the report of hia inimediuto com mander, General Shaftor, 11 fact which makes thu mention nil tho more cm phatic. General Kent, who led tho in funtry nt San .Tunn hill, says that ho often saw Miley delivering orders under nro with great unconcern. JMiley was the bearer of truce dispatches and ac companied Shutter when ho talked with tho Spanish generals. Ho it was who received the honor of hoisting tho American liag over tho governor's pal uco on July 17, and found a rival at the last moment in the Bhapo of n meddle some newspaper correspondent, who tried to rob the army of honor won nt tho cannon's mouth. Miley was one of tho three Americnn commissioners who negotiated the sur render of Santiago, the others being General Wheeler und General Lawton. There is an army story told to illus trate the remarkable influence at head quarters of this comparatively young uid-do-cainp. When tho Spaniards sur rendered, there wus a Spanish guuboat in urn iii.ri. . ... ,ii . 1 enemy pro posod to blow up pursuuVt to Cerveru's orders. Tho Americun ntivnl ollicen claimed the vessel as their prize, nnd during u warm discussion among ofU cers of both branches of the service Geuernl McKibben, the military gov ernor of Santiago, tunxfcl her over to the nuvy. When Miluy henrd of that, so tho story goes, ho declared that Mc Kibben should be removed, and he was almost instantly replaced by Colonel Wood. Miley is now a lieutennht colo nel of volunteers uud off to the Philip pines. Shutter suya that Miley was so clever as n regimental officer that whilo ha h, liflnclfw yet ft.cphjml ho jaatked him for his luturu uia-du-cninp.

Ho is n tall, nthlotic nnd very intelligent Tcxnn, with nntivo traits to mnko him 11 splen did soldier. It is no reflection upon tho conrngo of the nids to stnto that but few of them rode np Snn Junn hill. Muny of them wero without mounts, nnd somo were compelled to dismount back on tho route in order to get through obstructions to curry orders where n horse could not gn. lho gen- crai officers who had horses left them in the shelter allorded by tho river basin, and even Colonel Koosovelt con tradicts the curly statements of hisovcr zeulons admirers by declaring that ho dismounted at tho first wiro fenco in the creek bol'tom and didn't sco his horse ngain that day. Lieutenant K. F. Koohler of WikofE's staff, the quartermaster of tho brigado, was on horseback all day. Ho rodo :i common government horse, which be haved so well under firo that ho put in n bid to buy him for his regular bnddlo horse. Koariir worked his way from tho ranks to a commission and is ono of three brcfu rs who met the Spaniards in battle. 11: 1 commissary of Wikoff 's brigade, Lieutenant Paul H. Mtilono, also carric.i fiders that day under fire. Ho was njfe to Wikoff and Worth when .tlien two officers fell within n fi w minutes of each other at tho ford of the San Juan known as "Hell's Cross ing." It was a staff officer of WikoiT's bri gade who proved a "mascot" for Itaf ferty and F company of tho Seventy- first. Lieutenant Charles Tayman was one of the brigade staff that day, and ns three of the commanding officers fell ono after another Tnynmn wns com pelled to nice the field over agnin and again to bear the tidings to tho nest in rank. Ho waded tho croek and climbed the hill nt lfast three times, and once wns stricken down with something like sunstroke A boy in one of tho regi ments snw him lyinR helpless nnd un conscious in the tall grnss, and bringing n hatful of water from San Junn river restored him to consciousness.

DECLINE OF THE DUSTER. The 1'rartlra! Dlrniripenrnnco of n Garment Tlmt Wnn Oucn Familiar. A traveler by rail cannot fall to notlco tho decline of tho duster. And ono does not need to be, us tho man said, a cente narian to observe this. In fact, only 30 or 40 years ago dusters wero commonly worn by railroad travelers. They wero coexist ent with tho carpet sack and tho alligator mouthed valise, both now mora complete ly passed away than tho duster itself nnd almost ns completely gono ns tho hair cov ered trunk. Tho duster was worn, of courso, to pro tect tho wcai r and his garments from tho dust. When tho linen duster flourished, locomotives burned wood, tracks wero sand ballasted and rails wero light, cars wero 1 not vestlbuled or provided with dust screons for tho windows, and tho tlmo re quired to cover a given dlstanco was far greater than now. A duster was far more noeded then thnn now, and It was likely 1 to bo a part of tho equipment of tho casual ' as well as of tho regular traveler. Indeed , it may bo said that tho casual traveler ' would scarcely have thought that ho had made a trip by mil unless he had provided himself with that Indispensable part of ev ery traveler s equipment. I Hut tho linen duster wns not tho only one. Thoro were ousters or nlpaca anu or mohair and of other materials, somo of them black and somo gray big, flowing, comfortable dusters, which, If not beauti ful, had at least tho graco that all things madoof good materials possess. You could almost tell n mnu without seeing his faco by tho duster that ho wore. Now York Bun. The Voices of Ballets. From 11:30 onwnrd for two hours the Turks did their very best.
