Our escort tells us: "Tho-e were ouco penitentiaries filled with of f riders, bu' the crime of tho world has i ,ed out. Theft nnd arson nnd fraud nnd violence have quitted the earth.

And we holioio what our escort says, for ns we pass on we liud health glowing in every chock nnd beaming in every eye and springing In every slop and articu lating In every utterance, and you nnd I whisper to each other as our escort bus his attention drawn to some new sunrise upon the morning sky, nnd we say, each to the other: "Who would believe that this is the world we lived In over 100 years ago? Look at those men and wom en we pass on the road! How improved the human race! Such beauty, such strength, such gracefulness, such genial ity! Knees without the murk of one sor row! Cheeks that seem never to have been wet by One tear! A race subllmnt- ed! A new world bom!" Hut 1 say to our escort! "Did nil this merely happen so? Are all the good here spontaneously good? How did you get the old shipwrecked world atloat agnin, out of the breakers into the smooth sens?" "No, no!" responds our twenty first century escort. "Do you see those towers? Those are the towers of churches, towers of reformatory institutions, tow ers of Christian schools. Walk with me, and let us enter some of these temples." We enter, nnd I find that the music is in the major key nnd none of it In the I minor, "f.lorin In hxcolsls rising above "fJloria In K.vcelsls." Tremolo stop in the organ not so much used ns the trum pet stop. More of Ariel thnn of Naomi. More chants than dirges. Not a thin song, the words of which nit one under stands on the lip of n soloist, but mighty harmonics that roll trom outside door to chnncel nnd from floor to groined rnfter ns though Handel had come out of the eighteenth century Into the twenty-first nnd had his foot on the organ pedal, and Thomas I lustiiiL'S hnd come out of the early pait of the nineteenth century into the twenty-tirst nnd were lending the voices. Music that moves the earth nnd makes heaven listen! Hut I suy to our twenty-first century escort: "I cannot understand this. Have these worshipeis no sorrows, or have they forgotten their sorrows?" Our es cort responds: "Sorrows! Why, they hnd sorrows more thnn you could count, but by a divine illumination that the eight eenth nnd nineteenth centuries never enjoyed they understand the uses of sor row and are comforted with a supernatu ral condolence such ns previous centuries never experienced." nnnlKlirnent of Dentil, I nsk again of the interpreter, "nn" death been bnnished from the world?" The answer is "No. hut people die now only when the physical machinery is worn out, nnd they realize It is time to go nnd that they are certainly and with out doubt going Into n world where they will he infinitely better off and are to live in a mansion that awaits their im mediate occupancy." "Hut how was nil this effected?" I nsk our escort. An swer: "Ily floods of gospel power. You who lived in the nineteenth century nev er' snw n revival of religion to be com pared with whnt occurred in the latter patt of the twentieth nnd the early part of the twenty-first century. The proph ecy has been fulfilled that 'a nation shnll be born in a day' that is, ten or twenty or forty million people converted In -I hours. In our church history wu read of the great awakening of 1S57, when live hundred thousand souls were saved. Hut that was only n drop of the coining showers that since then took into the kingdom of God everything between the Atlantic and the Pacific, between the Pyrenees and the Himalayas." The evils that good people were in the nine teenth century trying to destroy have been overcome by celestial forces. What human weuponry fnlled to accompli--!! hns been done by omnipotent thunder bolts. As you nnd I see in this terrestrial visitation of the coming centuries that the church has under (Jod accomplished so much, we nsk our escort, the spirit of the twonty-Crst century, to show us the different kinds of chinches. So we are taken in nnd out of the churches of dif ferent denominations, nnd we find that they are just ns different in tho twenty tirst century ns they wore different in the nineteenth when wu worshiped In them. There Is unity in them us to the great essentials of salvation. Hut we enter the Baptist church, and it is baptismal day, and we see the candidates for mem borship Immersed. And we go into a I'reabytcrian church nnd see a group of parents around the baptismal font hold ing up their children for tlie christening. And we enter the Episcopal church and hear the solemn roll of her liturgies, and her ministers are gowned and surpliced. And wo enter the Lutheran church, and we henr iu the sermon preached the doc trines of the greatest of German reform ers. Anil we go into the Methodist church just iu time to sit down at a love feast and give audible "Amen" when the 'service stirs us. At lenst 50 'kinds of chinches in the twenty-tirst century, ns , theie were 150 different kinds of church es In the nineteenth century. ' I in pro vcnient In Trtnle. I "O spirit of tlie twenty-lirst century. will you not show us something of the commercial life of your tiineV" He an swers, "Tomorrow 1 will show you all." 1 And on tho morrow lie takes us through tlie groat marts of trade nnd shows us tlie bargain mnkers mid the shelves on 1 which the goods lay and the tierces nud hogsheads iu which they nre contained. I notice that tlie fabrics me of better ! quality than miythlng I ever saw In our nineteenth century, for the factories are more skillful, nnd the wheels that turn , and the looms that clack and the engines ! that rumble aro driven by forces thnt were not n century ago dlscoveied, The prices of the fabrics indicate a rea sonable profit, nud the firm lu the count ing room mid the clerks at the counter and the draymen at the doorway nnd tlie errand boy on his rounds nnd the nies- senger who brings the mail and the men who open the store iu the morning as well ns those who cIohc it nt night nil look ns if they were satisfied nnd well treated. No swallowing up of smnll bouses of iiierclinndise by great houses, no ruinous underselling until those in the same line nre bankrupt and then thu prices lirted, no unnecessary as-! slgnmont to defraud creditors, no over drawing of accounts, no absconding, no sharp practice, no snap judgments, hut the manufacturer right iu Ills dealings I with thu wholesaler, nud the wholesaler ; I with the retailer, and the retailer with tho customer. No purchasing of goods 1 that will never be paid for. All right be , hind the counter; nil right before the counter. No repetition of what Solomon describes when ho writes, "It is naught, it Is naught, suilh the buyer, but when he is gone bis wuy then ho boasteth."

"Hut what Is yonder row of buildings, majestic for architecture?" The spirit of the twuuty-lirst century snys, "Those lire our legislative hulls nnd plncos of public 1 trust, nnd If you would like it I will show you the political circles, the modes of ' proferment, the styles of election, the character of public men In this century." I "Thank you," t reply. "I can easily tin i derstand how gospeli7ntion would Im prove Individual life nud soclnl life and commerciiil life, but I would like to see I what It can do for political life." "Let me tell you," snys the spirit of the twon , ty-first century, "thnt I have read nhout political chicanery and corruption of more than 100 yenrs ago the nineteenth century, in which you lived hero but the , low political caucus has gone from tho face of the earth, nnd the stuffed ballot box, nnd the bribery by money nnd by promise of office, nnd the jobs got through legislatures nnd congresses by lobbyists. Wo havo nothing like a Credit Moblller Fcandal, or those harbor nud river appro , priatlons, tho most of which never lm , proM'd the harbors or rivers, or speeches to kill time and prevent a vote, or promo , tion to high place of political accidents, nnd the only bosses we have now boss hecnuse they have more brnin and purity than lhoe who are bossed. The money l barrel to buy votes and to decide who I shnll be elected did not roll Into this cen tury. All those In high ollice in town ship, stnte nnd nation are men superior , for intelligence and sagacity and moral ' equipment and fitness for the posts they , occupy. All intrigue and Machlavcllsm I and tcmporizntion are gone. Iltefnrins In Politic. "The last corrupt judge of election was burled TO years ago, the preacher officiat ing at the obsequies taking for his text Proverbs x, 7, 'The name of the wicked shall rot,' or Jeremiah xxii. 1!), 'He shall be buried witli the burial of nil nss drawn and cast forth beyond the gates of Jerusalem.' Our laws are good and well executed. Men do not in our cen tury have to wade chin deep through moral slush in order to gnln ollice. Tho word 'politics,' which in your century, the nineteenth, often stood for chicanery and falsehood and billingsgate and moral turpitude and filth, now stnnds for honor nnd justice nnd truth nnd righteousness. Such men ns were In your congresses, nnd parliaments and reighstags pointed out ! us exceptions of statesmanship nnd pa tiiotism nnd public spii itedness and elo quence nnd moral power would not bo pointed out now, for nil our public men are thus characterized. Politics has been nwept, garnished, glorified, ennobled, un til nothing more is to be desired. Wall: through all nldermnnic councils and sher Iffnlitie.s and gubernntorial rooms and presidential mansions and liud the truth of what I, tho spirit of the twenty-first century, tell you, who were of the nine teenth century nnd now come down on terrestrial visitation." As in company with our 'escort we pnss down from the heights on which these buildings stand I see n dismounted cannon planted on the side of the hill, and I go to examine it, and I read the Inscription, cut in letters of bronze: "This is tlie last gun that wns fired iu the last battle of the last war that will ever be fought. Presented by the last regiment of war just before disbanding. Ulory to Cod lu the highest, and on earth peace, good will to men." Then 1 look up, nnd our escort says: "Do you see that largo structure on our tight: That was a fortress, but now it is a col lege, nnd instead of guns aiming out of tho port holes nre looking the stu dents of n higher literature nnd a wiser science and a grander civilization than the world ever before Imagined. And those students nro taught by n professor ate of men ns renowned for piety ns for science. Archu'ologlst's hammer and ge ologist's crowbar nnd chemist's labora tory and explorer's journey have joined in a confirmation of the truth of the I Inly Scriptures until there is not an unbeliev er in all the earth. The astronomer through his telescope hns seen the morn ing star of the Itcdeemcr, and thu geolo gist lias found tho Hock of Ages, and the geometrician hns demonstrated that heaven is the city which 'lietli four square, and tho length and the brendth mid the height of it nre oqunl.' " "What," I say to our escort, "no skep tics, no InlideN, no aguosticsV" His reply is: "Absolutely none. The last fool who 'said lu his heart there is no God' was hurled u half century ngo without , any liturgical service, although perhaps a quartet of unbelievers may have stood around the easkot and sung n verse or two out of the gloom of 1'oc'n 'Kaveur "1'enhed aboe Ida chamber door Only this. Jiul nuthlng more." Tui'iii'il to AmIich. "Well," 1 say to our escort, "where nre Tom Paine's 'Age of Heasou' nnd Iu gcrsoll's 'Mistakes of Moses' nnd David Hume's nnd Voltnire's celebrated tirades against the HibluV" "I never beard o them," snys our escort. "What are you talking about V A bigger bonfire of books thnn that which in npostolic time was kindled In the streets of ICphesus was lighted in nil our cities and the corrupt literature of the world turned into ashes many, many years ngo. I snw the last leaf curl up lu the flume nud scatter." I response to my question as to whnt had wrought all this change obliterated all the evil and fully inaugurated all the good our escort, the spirit of tlie twenty , first century, tells me that gospelizatiim I had directly or indirectly done it. It wns ' o practical gospel thnt not only changed the heart, but mnde the mnii honest. A practical religion which did not expend all Its energy In singing, "Fly abroad, thou mighty gospel," but gave somethiug to make It Ily. The good work was helped on by the fact thnt it became n general habit among millionaires and multimillionaires to provide churches and schools nud Insti tutions of mercy, not to be built after the testators were dead, but built so that Mrs. It.

"Hut," I say to our escoit, the spirit of the twenty-first century, "you have shown us much, hut whnt nhout Interna tlounl conditions? When we lived on earth, it was a century that bled with Maieiigo and Chalons mid Lodl Bridge nud Lucknow nnd Solferino and Lelpsio and Waterloo mid San Juan." Our es cort replies, "Come with me to this build ing of white marble and glittering dome." As we pass up and on we are taken into a room where the mightiest and best rep resentatives of all nations are assembled to settle International controversies. As we enter 1 bonr the presiding officer open Ing the council of arbitration, rending the second chapter of Isaiah; "They shnll boat their swords Into plowshares nnd their spears into pruning hooks. Nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither bhnll they lenrn war any more." Questions which in our long paHt nine teenth century caused quarrel and blood shed, as when Germany and France were deciding about Alsace and Lorraine, ns when the United States and Spain wore deciding nhout Cuhn such questions In this twenty-fust century settled In live minutes, one drop of Ink doing more than once could have been accomplished by a river of blood. The Hull of Arliltrnllnn, Hut we cannot stay long in this hall of arbitration, for It is almost time for us to retrace our way lien von ward. Tills vm1,,i.i,. nvtl.i miml tii.,t, n.1 A Mil. passing out of this hall of arbitration, we go through n nntionnl museum, where we are shown among the curiosities an Ln field rifle, a howitzer, a Hotchkiss shell, an ambulance curiosities to that nge, hut, nlns! no curiosity to us of the nine teenth century, for some of our own kin dred went down under their stioke or i weie carried off the field by those wheels. ! "lint," I say to our escort, the spirit i 1 of the twenty-first century, and you and I , I say to each other, "we must go home I now, back again to heaven. We have ; staid long enough on this terrestrial visi , tation to see that nil the best things fore told in the Scriptures nnd which we read during our earthly residence have come to pass, and all the Davidic, Solomonic mid Pauliuian and Johntincnn prophecies have been fulfilled, and that the earth, instead of being a ghastly failuie, is the mightiest success in the universe. A star I redeemed. A planet rescued! A world saved! It started with a garden, and it is going to close with a garden. What a happiness thnt we could have seen this old woi'.d nfter it wn righted nnd before it burned, for its Internal fires have near ly burned out to the crust, according to the geologist, making it easy for the the ologian to believe in the conlhigrntion that the Hible predicts. One element taken from the water and that will burn, nnd another element taken from the air and that will burn, and surrounding plan ets will watch this old ship of a world on lire nnd wonder if all Its passengers goi safely off. Hefore that planetary catas trophe, hie us back to heaven. Farewell, spirit of the twenty-tirst century! Thanks for your guidance! We can stay no lon ger away from doxologies that never end, in temples never closed, in a day that has no sundown. We must repot t to the im mortals around the throne the transfor- muttons we have seen, the victories of truth on land and sen, the hemispheres irradiated, and Christ on the throne of enrth. as he is on the throne of heaven." And now you and I have left our escort ns we iisociid, for the law of gravitation has no power to detain ascending spirit'-. I'p through immensities and by stoll.tr nnd lunar and solar splendors, w hich can not be described by mortal tongue, we rise higher and higher, till we reach the shining gate as it opens for our return, and the quc-.tlons greet us from all sides: "What is tlie news? Whnt did you find in that earthly tower? Whnt have you to report in this city of tlie sun?" Pro phetic, npostolic, saintly inquiry. And, standing on the stops of the house of many mansions, we cry aloud the news: "Hear it, nil ye glorified Christian work ers of nil the past centuries! Wo found jour work was successful, whether on earth you toiled with knitting needle, or rung a trowel on a rising wall, or smote a shoe last, or endowed a university, or swayed a scepter; whether on earth you gave n cup of cold water iu the name of u disciple, or nt some Pentecost preached .1,000 souls into the kingdom.

Of the group of three young women who snt fn th first row in tho orchestra circle one hud seen the play earlier in the week. It was impossible to doubt that. It was equally certain that neither of her companions hud seen the play earlier in t he week. Likewise, the fact was mani fest that the young woman who bad seen the play earlier in the week felt entirely convinced that none of the people in the seats to the right or the left or before or behind her had seen the play earlier in the week, that she felt sorry for them In consequence and that she regarded it as a moral obligation resting upon her to tell them all nhout it. So before the ! cm tain went up she began: 1 "Now, Aggie and Mag, the first act is j jos' like a prco-face ill a book, and It's li.iidly nec'sary to see it nt all, honest, i Course I hey have to tnlk a lot, y'know, ' Mag, w'ile the folks that conies late gets Into their seats. Well, lomme see, how does II begin? Well, the fellah that af wiml marries the girl, y'know, ho comes in no, he doesn't yes, he does no, now I remember; It's the villain, nnd lie's got a inorglilge on her pa's proputty, and so he s tryln to hold that over her head, so s she'll jos' have to marry him, see? Then (lie good fellah, he comes in, and w'en he finds the villain there, a-tryiu to make the old man her pa, y'know name the day when he can marry his daughter the villain, y'linderstan' my, thole's such a slew, and then the good fellah- - J'e's K"t the scrumptiousest hair, jos' little gray at the temples and sides, y'know, like his life's been sad, y'know, Mag and then he" Tlie young woman's introduction was just about in this lucid state when the curtain went up. The people all u round the young woman who had seen the play earlier in the week were gazing with some little anxiety at her. Perhaps the fear preyed upon them that she intended to keep her running commentary on the ' go until the fail of the curtain on the final i act. If that was their fear, it soon np- ponied that it was justifiable. The cur i tain had no sooner gone up than the : young woman who had witnessed the performance earlier in the week leaned over to her two companions and begun a hoarse buzzing something like lids "Now, Mag and Ag, Jos' wait till you see 1 1 til t good fellah, and you can tell me if I wasn't right in sayin he was the han'soinest thing! l'ut I don't think the iendin lady's so purty. She looks nwf'ly stuck up to inc. Wnit "t'll you see her.

Now, you'll see him come out in jos' n-minit, nnd then if you don't say he's the han' somest" It happened thnt two quiet looking young men, not apparently ncquaintcf, but simply seatmates, snt directly in the tear of the young woman who had Ag and Mng for companions. They looked much bored during the beginning of the young woman's audible footnotes to the progress of the play, then perturbed, mid linally real hot under tlie collar. Hut they said nothing. They didn't even "Sh-sh!" Tln'y went out when the cur tain hnd fallen on the first act. Just be foie the rise of the curtain the taller of the two young men leaned over to the other, with a twinkle in his eye, and in a close imitation of the whisper of the young woman who had seen the play ear lier in the week he began: "Hey, Hill, this net is tlie beaut and the bird of the show. li's a .Tim Ilickey and u kifty nttch. The butler of the old man's shack starts the ball rollin.

It seems the old man has made him bore about sumethin or other, and" The people in the surrounding seats were "on to" the little play of the young man nt once, nnd there was some smoth ered tittering. Tlie young woman who had seen the play earlier in the week looked around contemptuously at the two young inen, but they ilulii t appear to know that she was in tlie theater. "What nets the old guy sore?" nsks the shorter of the young men in a toue of Intel est.

In Hvery nxltln(r Conipnnr Mijtiit art uo,ono,ooo. Several papers have published n para graph to the effect that the Prince of Wales Is Insured for about 10,000,000, n portion of the Insurance being for the benefit of creditors nnd a much Inrgcr ! t.. f .. .. . .. i,Kl,n. ,.nln. liillliuil III IHVUI Ol IR-Iuiin nviiin;. ii-'.- ed to him nor having any Interest what sver ;ver in his living. Professor A. V. Hnr- icy, tho insurance nctunry, who is au thority on nil such matters, considers tho statements ridiculous, nnd particularly the one thnt Prince Albeit Is Insured for the benefit of people who have no Insur able Interest In him, "Up to nhout 1"5 yenrs ago the prac tice of taking out insurance on the liven of kings, queens and othcrn in nuthoiity, where there wns no possible Insurable In terest, obtained to n great extent," said the professor when his attention wn called to the paragraph. "The practice became so general, scandnlous nnd vi cious that In 17"1 parliament enacted n statute (11 Geo. .'), c. -IS) prohibiting ab solutely nil Insurance In which there was no Interest to the beneficiary in the life of the prlnciprj in the contract and pro hibiting the payment of money under n policy written to secure a debt beyond the actual sum due. This law ngulnst wnger or gambling policies was followed up in France nnd Germany nnd in most of tlie states of this country and hns since been rigidly enforced everywhere." The niurunt of life insurance carried by the Prince of Wnles has never boon made public nnd Is probably known to only a few people. It Is evident, how ever, that the total Is not oue-tenlh of the sum named in the paragraph referred to. The most heavily insured man in the United States Is cx-Postniaster General John Wannmaker of Philadelphia, nnd I his Insurance amounts to only $2,025,000. The word "only" npplles here because of the comparison with $48,000,000 or, to ho more accurate, $18,775,000, according to the present maiket value here of 10, 000,000. At n meeting of the National i Underwriters' nssoclation in Philadelphia four yenrs ago Mr. Wunnmnker stilted thnt one of the first things he did nfter ! becoming of age wns to Insure his life. When Mr. Wnnaniaker addressed the as sociation his life insurance nmounted to $1,52.000, and all but $(10,000 hnd been taken after he was 50 years of nge. According to an eastern insurance Jour nal, "the amount of life insurance which enn be secured upon n single life among the United Stntes companies foots up $2,000,000." The paper gives n tnbulat . ,,j list of -l2 olJ Ijm. compnnies and what purports to be tho limit of each. The fig ures are correct In the main, but there nre some bud errors In the list. Some of the compnnies insure for more than the amounts credited to them, but iu every such case the company reinsures a portion of the risk. The figures In the table represent the limits without such reinsurance. Of course there could be no reinsurance on a person that took the limit in overy company. Legal reserve and stipulated premium companies thnt lire not usually classed ns old liners nro omitted from the table, as also assess ment companies, fraternal organizations nnd several industrial compnnies that write very little if nny ordinary life in surance. Accident compnnies that pay j death claims, but do not write ordlnnry i life insurance, are likewise omitted. In- eluding nil these, the totnl life insurance I that n person could get In the United j Stntes would probably still full below $3,000,000. There are nhout 3."0 life in surance companies in the world, not counting American companies. Very few of them Insure for as much ns $2fi,000, nnd the average is not hnlf thnt sum, but supposing it were $20,000 the totnl would be only $7,000,000, which, added to the American total, would still make only nhout one-fifth the sum the Prince of Wnles is reported to be insured for. St. Louis Globe-Democrat. ChrUt's Tench In if In Ilnslnrss. The author of "In His Steps," Kev, Charles M. Sheldon, writing on "Is Chris tianity Practical In Business Affairs?" in the November Ladies' Home Journal, contends thnt "the Immediate result of applying ChiUt's teachings to everyday life would without any question be tho nctunl los of almost everything In the wny of money nud social position nnd po litical power for vast numbers of persona who nre now rich or successful or power ful through the exercise of selfishthat is, un-Chri5tian methods of life. 1 have not the slightest doubt that if the mer j chants of Philadelphia, for example, should begin nt once to do as Jesus would do in business the immediate re sult would be bankruptcy for very many of them, perhaps for the majority. If not bankruptcy, then enormous losses would follow. This fact would not prove I thnt Christianity cannot be npplied to j modern business. It would simply prove i thut modern business does not square ' " t'u? teachings of Christianity. That I this is so business men themselves frank ly confess.
