And now I cnll your attention to the wheel of the text. Man. a smn II speck in tno universe, was set down In a big world, high mountains rising beforo him, deep Bens arresting nis pathway aud wild boasts capable of bis destruction, yet be was to conquer. It could not bo by physical force, for com pnre his arm with the ox's horu and tho elophnut'a tusk, and how weak ho lsl It could not bo by physical speed, for com pnrohlmto the antelope's loot and pturv in IK nu's wing, and how slow he lsl It could not bn by physical capacity to soar or plunge, for the condor beats him In one direction and the porpolso In the other. Yet he was to comruer the world. Two eyes, two bands anil two feet were InsurtW clent. He mut bo re-unforced, so Ood sent tho wheel. Twenty-two times Is tho wheel men tioned in tbo. Jll!lcr sometimes," as fn Ezoklel, Illustrating providential move ment; sometimes, ns In the Psalms, crush ing tho bnd; sometimes, ns in Judges, rep resenting (iod's charioted progress. The wheel that started lu Exodus rolls on through Troverhs, through Isaiah, through Jeremiah, through Dnnlnl, through Nullum, through the ccuturlos, all the time gather ing momentum and splendor, until, seeing what It has dona for the world's progress and bupplness, we clap our hands lu thanks giving and employ tbo apostrophe of thtr text, crying, "O wheel!" I call on you In this Thanksgiving week to praise Ood for the triumphs of machin ery, which have revolutionised the world and multiplied Its attractions. Evon para dise, though very picturesque, must have been comparatively dull, hardly anything going on, no agriculture needed, for the harvest was spontaneous; no architecture required, lor they slopt uuder the troes; no manufacturer's loom neoeesary for the weaving of apparel, for tho fashions were exceedingly simple. To dres the gnrden could not have required ten minutes a day. Having nothing to do, they got Into mis chief aud ruined themselves and the race. It was a sad thing to bo turnod out of par adise, but, once turned out, u benellceut thing to be compelled to work. To help man up and on God sent the wheel. If turnod ahead, tho rune udvnncos; If turned back, the race retreats. To arouse, youi) gratitude and exalt your prulso I would show you what the wheel lias done for the domustlo world, for the agricultural world; for the traveling world, for the literary world. "As for the wheels, It was erled unto them lu my bearing, O wheoll" In domestlo llfo the wheol has wrought revolution. Heboid the sewing machinel It has shattered tho housewife's bondage and prolonged woman's life and added Immeas urable advantages. The needle for nget had punctured tho eyes and pjoroad thu side and made terrible massacre. Te pre- fiare the garments of the whole household n the spring for summer and lu the an' tumn for winter was an exhausting pro cess. "8tll oh, stitch, stltchl" Tlioma Hood set it to poetry, but millions of per sons have found It agonizing prose. Hlaln by the sword, we burled the hero with the "Dead March" lu "Haul" and ilam at half mast. Hlaln by the needle, no om knew it but the household that wntchul her heulth glvlug way. The winter aftet thnt the children were ragged and col J aud hungry or In the nlmshouse. The hanJ that wielded tho needle had forgotten It cunning. Soul and body bud parted at thy soam. Tho thimble bad dropped from th palsied linger. The thread of life bail snapped and lot A Bartering human llfo drop Into the grave, Thospoul was all un wound. Her sopulcher was digged not with sexton's spade, but withasharpor and shorter Implement uuoodlo. Federal nnd Confederate do ml have ornamented gravei at Arlington Heights and ltlnhmond and Gettysburg, thousands by thousands, but It will take the archangel's trumpet to flud the million graves of the vaster army of Women needle slain. Besides ull thesewlngdone for'tbe house' hold at home, there arc hundreds of thou' I sands of sewing women. The tragody ol j ueneeuieis me imgeay or uuugor ntui eold and Insult and home-.slokness aud sui cide live nets. Dut I hear the rush of n wheel, woman puts on the baud and adjusts the Instru ment, puts her foot on the treadle nnd be gins, Ilcfore the whir nnd rattlo pleurisies, consumptions, headnohes, buakuobes, benrtaohes, are routed. The needle, once an oppressive tyrant, beoomes a cheerful slave roll and rumble and roar until the family wardrobe Is gathorod, and wintor if dullod, and summer is welcomed, and the ardors and severities of the seasons arc overcome; wtndlna the bobblne. threading I the shuttle, tuoklng, quilting, ruffling, cording, embroidering, uuder-brulding set to music; lock stitch, twisted loop stitch, crocket stitch, a fascinating ingenuity. No wonder thnt at some of tho learned Institutions, like the Now Jersoy rltutc Normal school, and Ilutgers Female Insti tute, and Elmiru Female college, acquaint ance with the sewing mauhlue Is a requisi tion, a young lady not being cone Mured educated until she understands It. Winter Is coming on, anil the household must bn warmly clad. "Tho Last Hobo of Hummer" will sound bettor played on a sewing ma chine than ou a piano, ltoll on, O wheel of the sewing muohluo, until the last shacklod woman of toll shall be omnucl putedl Roll on I Hocondly, I look Into the agricultural World to see what the wheel bus accom plished, 1.09k at the stalks of wheat and onts, the ono bread for man, the othei bread for horses, Coat off aud with h cradle made out of five or six Aimers ol wood aud one of sharp steel, the barvestei went across the Held, stroke after stroke, perspiration rolling down forehead uud cheek and obest, head blistered by the con suming sun and lip parched by the merci less August air, at noon tbo workmon iving nun ueau unuer ma trees, une ol my most painful boyhood memories is that of my father in harvest time reeling from ex huustlou over the doorstep, too tired to eat, pale and fainting as he sat down. The grain brought to the barn, the sheaves were unbound and spread on a threshing floor, and two men with flails stood oppo site eaah other, hour after hour and day after duy, pouudlng the wheat out of thu stalk. Two strokes, and then a cessation' of sound. Thump, thump, thump, thump, thnmp, tbumpl Pounded once aud theul turned over to be pounded again, slow, very slow.

Oue pouud of greeu seed cotton was all that a man oould prepare lu oue day, but F.ll Whitney, a Masaachuaetts Yaukee, woke up, got a handful of cotton and went to constructing a wheel for the parting of the fiber and the send.

Thank you, Ell Whitney, and I,. . Chi ehestor, of New York, bis siinvoisor. Above nil, thank Ood for their Inventive genius, that has done so much for the prosperity of the world. Thirdly, I look to see what tho wheel has done for the traveling world. No one can toll how many noble and self sacrificing inventors have benn crushed between tho coaoh wheel and the modern locomotive, between the paddle and the ocean steamer. I will not enter Into the controversy as to whether John Fitch or llobert Fulton or Thomas Somerset ws the Inven tor of the steamboat. They nil suf fered and wore martyrs of the wheal, and tbey shall be honored. John Fitch wrote: "The 21st of January, 1743, was the fatal lime of bringing me Into existence. I know ut nothing so perploxlng and vexatious to a man of feeling as a turbulent wife nnd steamboat building. I experienced the former nnd quit In season, and had I been tn my right senses I should undoubtedly ave treated the latter In the aame man ner; but, for one mnn to be tensed with 'totli, he must be looked upon as t li 0 most unfortunate mini In the world." Hee the train move out of one of our (treat depots for a thousand-mile Jour veyl All aboard! Tickets clipped nnd baggage checked and porters attentive to every want, under tunnels dripping with dampness that nover snw the light; along ledges where nn Inch off the track would be the difference between a hundred men living nnd a hundrod dead, full head of steam nnd two men lu the locomotive charged with all the responsibility of whistlo nnd Wostinghouso broke. Clank! clank! go the wheels. Claukl clank! echo the rocks, Hmnll vllloges only bear the thunder and see the whirlwind us the train shoots past, n city on the wing. Thrilling, startling, sublime, mngnillceni spectacle u rail train lu lightning procession. While the world has beou rolling on the eight wheels of the rail car or the four wheels of the carriage or the two wheels of the gig It was not until 1H76, at the Cen tennial Exposition at Philadelphia thnt the miracle of the nineteenth century rolled In the bicycle. Tbo world could not believe Its own e?o, and not until qulto far on In the eighties were the continents enohanted with the whirling, flashing, dominating spectacle of a machine that was to do so much for the pleasure, the business, the health and the prollt of nations. The world had needed it for 0,000 years. Fourthly, I look Into the literary world nnd see what tho wheel lias accomplished. I am more astounded with this than any thing that has preceded, llehold the al most miraculous prlutlug press! Do you not feel the ground shake with the ma chinery of the New Yo-k, Brooklyn, Boston, Philadelphia, Washington, nnd Western dallies? Home of us remember wlinn thu hand Ink roller was run ovor tho cylinder, and by great hnste 800 copies of the village newapnpor were Issued lu one duy nnd no lives lost. But invention has crowded in vention nnd wheel jostled wheel, st .reo typing, elootrolyplng, taking their p aces, Benjamin Franklin s press giving way to the Lord Htanhopu press, and the Wash ington press nnd the Victory press and the Hoo perfecting press have been set up. Together with the newspapers comes tho publication of Innumerable books of his tory, of poetry, of romance, of art, of travel, of biography, of religion, diction aries, encyclopedias and Bibles. Home of these presses send forth the most accursed stuff, but the gtod predominates. Turn on with wider sweep and greater velocity, 0 wheel wheol of light, wheel of civiliza tion, wheel of Christianity, wheel of divine momentum! On those four wheels thnt of the sewing machine, that of the reaper, that of tho railroad locomotive, that of the printing press thr world has moved up to Us pres ent prosperity. Aud now I guther on an imaginary plat form, as I literally did when I uroaohed In Brooklyn, specimens of our Amerlcau products. Here Is corn from tho West, a foretaste of thu great harvest that Is to come down to our seaboard, enough for ourselves uud for foreign shipment. Her is rice from thj Houth, never a more beautiful product grown ou the plauet, mingling the gol I aud green. 1 Hero are two sheaves, n sheaf of North ern wheat and a sheaf of Houtheru rice, bound together. May tho band never break! Hare is cotton, the wealthiest produot of America. Here Is sugar ouue, enough to sweeten the beverages of an em pire. Wbo would think that out of sueh a humble stalk there would come such a luscious product? Here nro palmetto troos thnt have In their pulses the warmth of southern climes. Here is the cactus of the Houth, so beauti ful and so tempting it must go armed. Here are the products of Amerlcun mines. This is Iron, this Is coal, the Iron repre senting a vast yield, our country sending forth one year HOI). 000 tons of It, the coal representing 100,000 square miles of It, the Iron prying out the coal, the coal smelting the iron.

Here Is mica fiom the quarries of New Hampshire. How beautiful it looks In the sunlight! Here Is copper from Lake Hu perlor, so heavy I dare uot lift it. Here Is gold from Virginia aud Oeorgln. I look around me on this Imaginary plat form, and it seems as If the waves of agri cultural, mtneniloKlonl, pomologloabwtielth dash to tbo platform, aud there are: tour beautiful beiugs that walk In, aud tbey aru all garlanded.

The murder of a woman and lior three children was revealed on a farm near Mont gomery Borough, Lycoming county. The bodies of two children were llrst found bid den beneath a straw stack. Thereupon a warrant was Issued for the arrest of A brum Hummel, a stepfather of the murdered chil dren, who is missing. Throe weeks ago Hummel married Mrs, Yeagle, a widow, who bad three children. A few days Inter the neighbors noticed thnt the eldest two chil dren were missing, aud on Tuesday the Hummel premises were deserted. A party of neighbors made a search- They found a blood-smeared piece of burlap near the barn. Disarranged straw attracted their attention to the stack, and under this the bodies of the two children with their bends crushed were found. The bodies look ns though tho chil dren had been dead for two weeks, A tele gram to District Attorney O. O. Kaupp states that the bodies of Mrs. lliimmt-l and her other child were found In an outbuilding. The dead wro horribly mutilated, the mur derer evidently having used a club In carry ing out his llendlsh crime. Montgomery and vicinity was in n state of utmost excite ment as a result of the ghastly discoveries. It Is believed that Hummel has' made good his escape. No motiva for tho quadruple murder has yet been found. The crime Is without a parallel In tho history of Lycom ing county, Nn More Company Hlores.

To my astonishment I found that the water of this lake is very poisonous! Oh, I am a gone man I teol it running all over me. I have only a few minutes to live!

Etceptlonally never Fro oil Perpetrated by an Ingenlone Jeweler, A few years ago public curiosity was excited by tbo curious beans called the "devil beans of Moxlco," which shopkeepers placed In their windows. They somewhat resembled roasted coffee beans In shape and color. Tbey were also known as the "Jumping beans," owing to the fact that from time to time they made spasmodic movements which propelled them quite a Httlo distance. The beans grew on a small bush In the Mexican mountains, and it is con jectured that they belonged to the or der etiphorblaceae. The bean really consisted of three similar pods which formed a single bean. It is usually a third of the bean which was exhibited as a curiosity. On opening the pod it was found that It contained a small larva, something like that frequently found In chestnuts. It is this little occupant which gives motion to the bean by its Jerks and thumps against the side of its home. If tbe bean la slightly warmed It begins to turn from side to side, and perhaps with a sudden thump turns completely over and stands on one end, and then by successive Jumps moves quite a dis tance. Those who are not In tbe se cret are often greatly puzzled by this strange bean. An enterprising Jew eler devised a scheme of utilizing them to make a magic clock. He ac complished this by imitating the shape of two of the beans, making the dummy beans out of soft iron. One he gilded and the other he silvered. The prepared iron benns were placed with the ordinary Jumping beans on a thin white piece of pasteboard, out lined and numbered like the dial of a clock, but devoid of hands, Tbe dial was located over the works of a large clock, which was placed face upward on the floor of the store win dow. He fastened small magnets to the ends of the hands. The works were of course carefully hidden from view. All that was in evidence was the cardboard clock dial and tbe Jumping beans, among which were the gold and silver painted iron beans. These were placed on the cardboard over the concealed hands with the niagiii'ts attached. The magnets were moved , by tti? hands of the clock so that they were aliKC?t In contact with the cardboard. Aa they moved around they carried the Iron beans a 1th them thus telling the time of day. an the public was greatly interested by tb Intelligence shown by the two beans, which distinguished them from their lively associates.

A boy named Veasy, having escaped from tbe workhouse at Hinckley, Leicestershire, England, the porter was ordered to proceed to Stanton, a neigh boring village, aud bring him back. The porter went to Stanford on a bi cycle, and, Indlng tbe lad, tied both bla arms wl a rope, and, attaching tbe end of it to his bicycle, dragged him back to Hinckley, the man riding at good speed. The affair has created a great sensation in the district, and at the recent meeting of the Hinckley guardians the board expressed their strong condemnation of the porter's conduct. One member of the .board said tho boy was exhausted by the treatment meted out to htm. At the meeting the porter's resignation was tendered and accepted, the man's ex planation for resigning being that he did not care for the treatment he re ceived from the vagrants.

The deer hunting season In the Adlrondacks opened Aug. 1. Four days later followed a tragedy. Two broth ers were camping on the eighth lake of the Fulton chain. For the younger, a youth of 17 years, it was the first season of camp life, and, like all youngsters In tbe woods in their ini tial experience, he was aglow with ar dor to get his first deer. About sun down this younger brother left camp alone and shortly after was followed by the other. When the elder of the two came to the Ourant road he saw a movement of the brush, such as is caused by a deer. On the Instant he raised his rifle, took quick aim at the moving brush, fired, then rushed in to see what he had shot, and found his brother, who had been killed instantan eously by a shot through tbe breast. A human life cut short in the flower of youth. Another life clouded by the anguish of the hour and by lire-long regret and self-reproach. A borne des olated. And all as the fruit of one foolish movement with a deadly weap on in the woods. If we did not read the stories of such accidents year after year, and from time to time meet the bereaved fathers and mothers, and wives and children of the victims, it would be impossible to conceive that grown men could be found to bring this woe uoon themselves and upon their fellows. And yet season after season the record grows. Now it is a farmer who shoots a neighbor by mis take for a ground hog; now a Maine mooBe hunter wbo kills his guide for big game, and now the Adirondack camper who does to death his brother for a deer. Before the season stall be over and the rifles put away we shall hear probably of a score of such trage dies. And it Is all so cruelly heart rem'lng because so unnecessary. lC Jf Some grocers are so short sighted as to decline to keep the Ivory Soap, claiming it does not ray as much profit as inferior qualities do, so if your regular grocer refuses to get it for you, there are undoubtedly others who recognize the fact that the increased volume of business done by reason of keeping the best articles more than compensates for the smaller profit, and wil take pleasure in getting it for you.
