C In n unique way the lienvuuly world I.h dleBourneil upon by Dr. TalmiiKu In thit BHnnoii umlnr the figure of I home; text, John xlv., 'i, "In My Father's louse are many room." Here Is a bottle of medicine that Is a urn oil. The dlnolples wore and, and Ohrlst offered heaven us nn altnrntlve, a tlmiilnnt ami a tonic. He shows them .hut thnlr sorrows are only a dark back ground of n brlitht picture of comlne :llclty. He lets them know that, though low they live on the lowland, they shall yet have o house on the upland. Nearly ill tho Dlble descriptions of heaven mny be llRitrntlve. I am not ponltlve that In all 'leaven there Is a literal crown or burp or pearly gate or throne or chariot. They nay be only Fe! to Illustrate the glories Jf the place, but how well they d 6 k" The fuvorlte symbol by which the Dlble pre lents celestial happiness Is a house. Paul, who never owned a house, although be hired one for two years In Italy, speaks of heaven as a "house not made with hinds," hihI Christ in our text, the translation of which is a little olinngod, to as to give the moro accurate meaulns, aays: "In Jly Father's hou io aro inuiiy rooms." This divinely nuthorlxod compurlsou of heaven to a great homestead ol large an commoilatlotis I propose co carry out. Ia some healthy neighborhood a man builds a very commodious haliiiatlon. He must have room for nil his children. The rooms coma to bo culled after the dllTnrent mem bers of the tnmllv. That Is mother's room, that Isdeorirc's room, that Is Henry's room, thnt is Flora's room, that is Mary's room, und the bouse Is all occupied. JHit time goes by, mid the sous no out Into the world and build thulr own homes, und the daughter are married or havo talents ououith hlnitly to go out and do a good work in tho world. Arter a while the father and mother are almost alone in the big hon, und, seated by the evening tuud, tlioy say, "Well, our family 1 no Inrger now than when wo started together forty years ago." But time goes still further by, and somo of the children are unfortunate and return to the old home stead to live, and the grandchildren come with them and perhaps Kroat-grau dchll dren, and nguin the house is full. Millennia uko (lod built on the. hills of liuaveu a great liomuilad tor a family In numerable, j ot to be. At llrst He lived alone In that great houso, but nlier awhile It was occupied by a very large family, cher ubic, semplilu, nngeilc. The eternities passed on, aud many of the Inhabitants became wayward and lert, never to return, und many of the apartments were vacant. I refer to tho fallen unguis. Now these apartments are filling upngain. Tnerenre arrival at the old homestead of Ood'l children every day, und the day will come when there will be no uuocoupied room In all tho house. As you and I expect to enter It and make there eternal residence, I thouirlit you would like to got somo more particulars about the many roomed homestead. "In my Father's bouse are ninny rooms." You see, the place is to be apoortloued off into apartments. Wo shall lo've all who una ia heaven, but there are some very good peo ple whom we would not want to live with In the same room. They may be better than we are, but they are of a divergent temperament. We would like to meet with them on the golden streets aud worship with them In the temple and walk with them on the river banks, but I am glad to say that we shall live lu different apart ments. "In ray Father's bouse aro many rooms." You see, heaven will be so large that If one wants an entire room to himself or herself it can be afforded. An Ingenious statistician, taking the statement made in ltevelatlou, twenty-first chapter, that the heavenly Jerusalem was measured aud found to be 12,000 furlongs and that the lengthaud heightand breadth of it are equal, says that would make heaven in size HI, sextilllon 08H quintilliou cubio feet, ami then, reserving a certain portion for tho court of heaven and the streets aud estimating that the world may lust a hundred thousand years, he ciphers out that there are over 8,000,000,000,001) rooms, each room teventeen feut long, six teun feet wide, fifteen feet high. But 1 have no faith in the accuracy of that calcula tion. He makes the rooms too small. From all I can read the rooms will be palatial, und those who havo not hud enough room lu this world will have plenty of room at the last. I should not wonder If, Instead of the room that the statistician ciphered out as only seventeen feet by sixteuu, It should be largor than nnvof the rooms at Berlin, Ht. James or Winter paluco. "Iu lay Father's house are muny rooms." '!arrylug out still further tho symbolism of the text, let us jolu hands and go up to tills majestic homestead ami see for our selves. As we ascend the golden stops au Invisible guurdsranu swings open the front door, and we are ushered to the right Into the reception room of the old homestead.' That is the place where we first meet the welcome of heaven. There must be u pluce where the departed spirit enters and a place in which It confronts the Inhabitants celestial. The reception room of the new ly arrived from this world what scenes it; must have witnessed since the llrst guest arrived, the victim of the llrst fratricide, pious Abel! lu thut room Christ lovingly greets all newcomers. He redeemed them, and He bus the right to tho llrst embrace on arrival. Wbut a minute when the asceuded spirit llrst sees the Lordl Better thuu all we ever real about Hliu or talked about Him or sang about Hliu In nil the churches and through all our earthly lifetime will it be. Just for one second to see Him. The most rapturous Idea we ever bud of Him ou sacramental days or at tho height of some grunt revival or under the uplifted baton of an oratorio Is a bankruptcy of iiiuiiKiii compared Willi tile llrst Hiisli of His uppeurauue iu that reception room, At that moment wheu you confront each other, Christ looking upon you and you looking upon Christ, there will be nn ec statlo thrill and surging of emotion that beggar all desorlptlou. Look! They need no Introduction. Long ago Christ ohose that repentant sinner, and that repentant sinner chose Christ. Mightiest momott of an Immortal history the first kiss of heaven! Jesus and the soul! Thosouland Jesus! Hut now Into that reception room pour the glorilled kinsfolk, ououirh of earthly retention to lot you kuow them, but with out their wouudi or their sicknesses or their troubles. Bee what heaven hu done for them so radiant, so glueriil, so truiispostliiKly lovely! They call you by name. They greet you with an ardor pro portioned to the anguish of your parting and the length of your separation. Futherl Mother! There is vour. uhild. Klstersl Brothers! Friends! I wish you Joy. For years apart, toirether uriiIu in thu reception room of the old bomostead. You see, they will kuow you are oomiug. 'i'hure are so many immortals filling all the spaces between here aud heaven that news like thut flies like ilghtutug. They will be there In au Instant. Though they were in some other world on orraud from (iod, a signal would be thrown that would fntoh them. Though you might at first foel dazed and overawed at their super nal splendor, all that feeling will be gone at their llrst touch of heavenly salutation, and wo will say: "Oil. my lost boy!" "Oh, my lost oompanloul" "Oh, my lost friend! Are wo here together!" What scenes In that reception room of tho old homestead have been wltuessedl There met Joseph nud Jacob, lludlug It a brighter room than anything they saw In Pharaoh's palace; David and the little ohild for whom lie once fasted nud wept; Mary and Laz--arus after the beurtbruak of Hull, any; Timothy und graudmotuer Lois; Isabella Graham aud her sailor sou; Alfred aud (leortce Cookmau, the mystery of the sea at last made manifest; Luther aud Magda lene, the daughter be bemoaned; John Howard and the prisoners whom ha goa. pell.ed, and multitudes without number who, ones so weary aud so sad, parted on earth, but gloriously met in beaveu. Among ull the rooms of that house there Is no oue that more enraptures my soul thuu thut reception room. "Ia my Father's nousu ars many rooms." Another room la our Father's house Is the throae room. We belong to the royal family. The blood of King Jesus flows in our veins, so we have a right to enter the throne room. It Is uo easy thing on earth to get through even the outside door of n king's residence. During the Frunoo-Oer-mau war, one eventide la the summer of law, 1 stood studying tnn exquisite snulp turlug of the gste of the Tullerles Paris. Lost in admiration of the wonderful art of tbst gate, I knew not thnt I was exciting suspicion. Lowering my eyes to the crowds of people, I found myself being closely In spected by the government officials, who from my complexion, Judged mo to b a Ger man and thnt for some belligerent purpose I might be examining the gates of the pal ace. My explanatlou In very poor French did not sntisfy them, and they followed me long distances until I reached my hotel nnd were not satisfied until from my land lord they found that 1 was only nn Inoffen sive American. The gate of e irthly pal aces are carefully guarded, and If so, how much moro the thronerooint A dazzling place is it for mirrors and nil costly art. No one who ever saw the throneroom of the first nnd only Napoleon will ever for get the letter N embroidered In purple nud gold on the upholstery of chair and win dow, the letter N gilded on tho wall, the letter N chased on the chalices, the letter N Darning from tho celling. What a con flngrstion of brilliance the throneroom of Charles Immanuel of Kardinla, of Ferdinnnd of Hpuln, of F.llsabeth of Knglnnd, of Boniface of Italy. Rut the throneroom of onr Father's bouse hath a glory eclipsing all the throne rooms thnt ever saw scepter wnve or crown glitter or foreign embassador bow, for our Fhiinr's throun is a throue of graco, a thrones of mercy, a throne of holiness, a throne of JW'ce, n throne of universal dominion. We Vped not stand shivering snd cowering beforo"it, iVr.?r Father says we may vet one day come up and Mt pn It beside illm. "To him that over.'omefii will I grant to alt with Me In My throne." You see, we are princes nud princesses. Perhaps now we move about Incognito, as Peter the (treat lu the garb of a ship car penter at Amsterdum or as Queen Tlrzali In the dress of a peasant woman seeking the prophet for her child's euro, but it will be found out after a while who we are when we get Into tho throneroom. Aye, we need not wnlt until then. We may by prayer nnd song aud spiritual uplifting this moment enter the throneroom. O King, live forever! We touch the scepter und prostrate ourselves at Thy fee:. Another roo-u In onr Father's house I the music room. Ht. John and other Bible writers talk so much about thomusleol heaven that there must be music there, perhaps not such as on earth was thrum, med from trembling string or evoked by touoh of Ivory key; bat. It not that, then something better. There are so many Christian harpists and Christian composers and Christian organists and Christian bym nologists thnt have gouo up from earth, there must be for thorn some place of es pedal delectation, Hhall we have music in this world of discords nnd no music in the land of complete linrmouy? In that music room of our lather's house you will some day meet the old masters, Mozart nnd Handel and Mendelssohn and Beethoven and Doddridge, whose sacred poetry was as remarkable as his sacred prose, nnd James Montgomery nnd William Cowper, at last got rid of his spiritual mul ancholy, nnd Bishop Holier, who sang ol "Oreenlnid's Icy mountains and India's coral strand," and Dr. Unfiles, wno wrote of "High in yonder realms of light," nnd Isnno Watts, who weut to visit Hir Thomas Abneyand wife for a week, but proved himself so agreeable a guest that fiey made him stay thirty-six years, and side by side Augustus Toplady, who has got over his dislike for Methodists, and Charles Wesley freed from his dislike fot Caivlnists, nnd Oeorge W. Bethune, as sweet as a songmaker as he was great as a preacher and the author of "The Village Hymns," and many who wrot lu verse or song. In church or by eventide cradle, and many who wero passionately fond of music, hut could make none them selves, thu poorest sluger there mare than any earthly prima donna and the poorest pln-ers;there more than any earthly Ootl schalk. Oh, thnt music room, the head quarters of cadence and rhythm, sym phony and chant, psalm and nntlphon! May we bo there some hour when Haydn elts at the keys of oue of his own oratorios, and David the psalmist flugers the harp, nud Mirinm of tho Bed sea banks chips thu cymbals, nnd Gabriel putt bis lips to the trumpet nnd the four and twenty olden chant, and Llud aud Pnrepa render mutch less duet lu tho music room of the old heavenly bomestend! "In ray Futuer's house are mnny rooms." Another room iu our Father's house will oa the family room. It may correspond somewhat with the family room on earth, At morning and evening, you know, that Is the place we now meet. Though uverv member of the household have a separate room, in me inmiiy room tuny all gather, and Joys nnd sorrows und experiences ol ill styles aro there rehearsed. Hacreil room In all our dwellings, whether It be luxuri ous with ottomans aud divans aud book! In Russian lids standing In mahogany case or there be only a few plain chairs aud n cradle. Ho the family room ou high will be the place where the kinsfolk assem ble and talk over the family expert ences of earth, the weddings, the births, the burials, the festal days of Christmas and Thanksgiving reuulou. Will the children departed remain chil dren there? Will the aged remain aged there? Oh, no! Everything Is per fect there. Thecbildwlli go n head to glori lled maturity, and the aged will go back to glorified maturity. The rising sua ol the one will rise to meridian, aud the descending sun of the other will return to meridian. However inuoh we love out children on earth, we would consider It u domestic disaster if they staid children, and so we rejoice nt their growth here And when we meet In the family room ol our Father's house we will bo glad that they have grandly und gloriously matured, while our parents, who were aged and lu ll rm here, we shall be glad to find re stored to the most ugllo and vigorous liu. mortality there, : I hope none of us will be disappointed about getting there. There Is a room fot us it we will go nud take it, but Iu ordei o reach it It Is absolutely necessary that ,we take the right way, und Christ Is the way, aud we must enter nt the right door and Christ Is the door, and we must atari iu time, aud the only hour you are suraol Is the hour the clock now strikes, aud the only seoond the one your watch is now ticking. I hold lu my baud a roll ol letters Inviting you ull to make that your home forever. Tho New Testa, ineut Is only u roll of letters invltlna you, as the spirit of them practically says: "My dying yet Immortal child iu oarthly neighborhood, I have built for you a greut residence. It is full of rooms. I have furnished them as no pulaco wnsevei furnished. Pearls aro nothing, emeralds are nothing, chrysoprasua is nothing, lllu mined puuels of suurise snd sunset noth ing, thu uuroru of the northern heavens nothing, compared with the spleudor with which I have garnltured them. But you must be cleau before you can enter there, aud sa I have opened a fountain where you may wash ull your sins away. Come uowl Put your weary but cleansed feet ou the upward pathway. Do you not see amid the thick foliage on tho heavenly hilltops the old family homesteud?" "Iu uiy Futuer's house ura mauy rooms." Minnesota papers claim for. tluit stnte the distinction of uu exception ally ellicient iiilniiniMtiiitiou of the institutions for tho stutu's ilopendonts. A constantly decreasing coHt per capita for the lust (lociulo in otl'ered as ono proof of the meusui o of elliciency. The figures for the lust fiscal year show reductions iu tho cuse of most of the institutions. Of special iutt r ont iu these figures is the cost of food. In the asylums for tho insiiuu it was 10.H cents u day per inmate, a slight increase over the 0.8 cents cost iu 181)7, nud a considerable decrease from tho 11 cents iu 181)5. In the institutions for dependent children the food expense was as low us 7.1 cents. It was 8.7 cents in the aoliool for feeble minded, aud varied from lit.!) tolfj.ii in the school for the blind, '.'who cuuuot eat the same food as seeing peojde," the report explains. The next highest cost is 12 cents iu tho prisons, where the iumutes need to supply the exhaustion aud wear due to hurd labor, i'riuoners are uot daintily fed, of course, but there ia no complaint as to the fare, and the fact is established that a working adult may be wholesomely nourished under institution methods at a cost of l2 cents a day THE KEYSTONE STATE.

Describing the accident to a part ol tourists while ascending the Schneeb leg In Austria when a rope-railway wagon ran off the line and fell, with Its occupants, ahout sixty feet, Herr von Ompteda, the German novelist, who broke a lib, wrote to a friend at follows, says the London Dally News: "It Is psychologically Interesting that none of us screamed as we fell. I knew exactly what to do. I waited until the wagon was in the middle of Its fall and then, crossing my arms over my head, Jumped off sideways, for my first thought was before all, don't get un der the wagon! The violinist (who was killed) was standing near me, clinging convulsively to the wagon and I was Just about to cry to him, 'Let loose!', But It was too late. . Singularly, I felt sure that my wife was safe. 1 somehow believed she had not fallen and I wanted to stand up and give net a sign. But I could not move. All at once she bent over me, with blood run ning out of her mouth, and cried: 'Mod petit, es-tu tuort?' I said, 'No, I can move,' but I could not move. My glorious wife thought only of. me and not for a moment of herself. Her 'left side la frightfully torn and bruised,' but she Is brave and keeps up. I am obliged to lie still. So, enough."

Y.) special New York Jotirnul: Lew Boyd, who Uvea near the town of Deer Park, reported here that one day last week when he went to drive home his cows, he saw no less than seven deer feeding on his premises. Mr. Boyd says that he suf fers considerable loss through the depredations of deer, which have de voured his apples and crops. He daros not shoot them, because they are pro tected, by ltw until 1901. He thinks that if the slate protects deer It ought also to protect him against being eaten out of his farm by them.

The pugilist is from Australia, and has traveled In South Africa, so the re porter asked him It he had met Cecil Rhodes. "Rhodes," replied the Aus trallan; "what's his weight?" A British tourist wandered Into the Rustlers' Retreat In an Arizona town recently, and languidly asked for a 'lgh ball. "Jake," called the accommodat ing barkeeper to his assistant, "the gent wants a eye-ball; I dunno wat fer, but he wants it. Go out and ketch a Chinaman." Friends of the two remember the quarrels that used to go on between the late Sir Rowland Hill and Anthony Trollope when they both were con nected with the postofllce. A discus sion arose one day as to the meaning of "official" language and "private" language. "In official life," said Sir Rowland, glaring at Trollope. "I am accustomed to ascribe myself as your obedient servant, whereas In real life you know very well that I am nothing of the sort!" Jerry Simpson tells a story of a trav eler who. Just as he was writing his name on the register of a Leavenworth hotel, saw a clmex lectlcularlus which took its way across the page. The man paused and remarked: "I've been bled by St. Joseph fleas, bitten by Kansas City spiders, and interviewed by Fort Scott graybacks, but I'll be darned if I was ever in a place before where the bugs looked over the hotel register to find out where your room was."
