A very fine rolleetiou of Roman pot tery lias lately been excavated near the lodge of Wuliner Castle in Kent. There are 40 pieces altogether, some of which are of great value. It is believed that they have been buried tbout 1,600 years. The territorial legislature of New Mexico has appointed a nonpartisan committee of 14 to go to Washington for the promotion of the territory's idmission to the union. An appro priation of $2,000 has been placed at !his committee's disposal. In respect if inhabitants. New Mexico is cred ited by the census of 1000 with 195, 110, surpassing in number Delaware, Idaho, Nevada and Wyoming. The earth has a shadow, but few *ver observe it, or. if they do. have 90 knowledge of what they are look ing at. Some of us hnve seen on beautiful summer evenings just be fore sunset a roseate arc on the ho rizon opposite the sun, with a bluish fray segment under it. This is the lhadow of the earth. The same shad ow is always observable on the occae lion of an eclipse of the moon. A Paraguayan lace parasol cover, lellcate as a spider’s web. in the mak Ing of which two women toiled for lour years, is the exquisite creation Sihieh Mrs. Eben Flagg hax given to Mrs. Cornelius Vanderbilt. The cele brated laee of Paraguay, soft and lus trous as silk, and because of its sim ilarity in texture to the most delicate cobwebs, is called by the natives “nanduti." The women make it from rery fine fibers of native plants. William Scully owns a greater num ber of farms than any man in the United States. The aggregate area is 200,000 neres. They are worth $10, 900.000. They ure located in Central Illinois, Western Missouri and Kan sas. They represent the accumula tion of 50 years of the life of their owner, whose age is 78. lie is the richest farmer in the richest agri cultural section in the world. His wealth is said to be $25,000,000. Mr. Dudgeon, who died recently in Pekin, was perhaps the liest known of >11 the Europeans in China, with the exception of Sir Robert Hart. He went out early in the 60’s to take eharge of the British legation hospi tal, and the walls of the hospital were adorned with tablets testifying to his surgical skill. For 20 years the doctor was daily ut his post, receiv ing nil sorts and conditions of China men, and at times his patients num bered 100 a day. The wire gross which grows in the swamps and lowlands of Illinois, I*» «’B, Wisconsin, Minnesota and other states in that section is no longer a waste material, occupying and over running n re than a million acres, wholly worthless to mankind. It is aow made into binding twine, door mats, baby buggies, baskets, ham pers, chairs, settees, screens, doors, bassinets, music stands, flower stands, tables and other articles useful in every day life. One of the biggest factories for the manufacture of spectacles and eve glasses in the United States is at Lensdale, Mass. Jlere are made all styles of lenses spherical, cylindri cal, prisms, pebbles, colored, etc. Tho lens stock is imported in the rough from tiermnnv. England and France. It comes in oblong plates, squares, rounds or oval*. It is gaged as to thickness by ruuning through a gi gantic machine, which separates t bo si/es to within n variation of ouu fiftb of a millimeter. Many people who hold the shark In fear nnd trembling would hardly believe that its carcass is highly rai ned for commercial purposes, but. as u matter of fact, thousand* of sharks are annually cut up und the skins dried and sold. 1 he drying process makes the skin as hard as adamant nnd ns smooth as mother-of-pearl.

A Prophfrf on Oar Own Rfinrrrrtloa — A* Chrlat linn Kltrn So \\ III HI* I’roplr Itlne—The Im mortal Hotly. [Copyright. 1901. by Lculs^Klopsch. N. Y.J Washington, April 7.—The great Christian festival celebrated in all the churches is the theme of Dr. Tnlmnge’s discourse; I. Corinthians, 15:20: “Now is Christ risen from the dead und be come the first fruits of them that slept.” On this glorious Easter morning, amid the music and the flowers, I give you Christian salutation. This morn ing, Russian meeting Russian on the streets of St. Petersburg, hauls him with the salutation: “Christ is risen!** nnd is answered by his friend in salu tation: “lie is risen indeed!** Insoine parts of England and Ireland to this very day there is the superstition that on Easter morning the sun dances in the heavens. And well may we forgive such a superstition, which illustrates the fact that the natural world seems to sympathize with the spiritual. Hail, Easter morning!' Flowers! Flowers! All of them n-voice, all of them n-tongue, ull of them full «»f speech to-day. I bend over one of the lilies, and I hear It say: “Consider the lilies of the valley, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin, yet Solomon in all his glory was not ar rayed like one of these.” I bend over a rose, and it seems to whisper: “I am tlie rose of Sharon.” And ihen 1 stand and listen. From all sides there comes the chorus of flowers, saving: “I f (iod so clothed the grass of t he field which to-day is and to-morrow is cast into the oven, shall He not much more clothe you, () ye of little faithV” Flowers! Flowers! Itraid them into the bride’s hair. Flowers! Flowers! Strew them over the graves of the dead, sweet prophecy of the resurrec tion. Flowers! Flowers! Tivistthem Into a garland for my Lord Jesus on Easter morning, and “Glory be to the Euther, and to the Son. and to the Holy Ghost; ns it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall he.” The women came to the Saviour’s tomb, and thev dropped spices all around the tomb, and those spices were the seed that began to grow, and from them came all th** flowers of this E!aster morn. The two angels rolled in white took hold of the stone at tin- Saviour's tomb, and they hurled it with such force down the hill that it crushed in the door of the world’s sepulcher, and the stark and the dead must come forth. I care not how labyrinthine tlie mau soleum or how costly the sarcophagus or however beautifully pnrterred the family grounds, avc want them all | broken tip by the Lord of the resur rection. i hey must come out. E'n ther and mother—they must come out. Husband and wife—they must come out. brother nnd sister—thev must cmne out. Our darling children—they must come out. The eves that w'e closed with such trembling fingers must open again in the radiance of that morn. The arms we folded iu dust must join ours in an embrace of re union. The voice that was hushed in our dwelling must be returned. Oh. how long some «*f you seem tube wait ing for the resurrection! And for these broken hearts to-day I make a soft, cool bandage out of Easter flowers. This morning I find in the risen Christ a prophecy of our own resur rection. my text setting forth the idea that as ( lirist has risen sc llis people will rise. He. the first sheaf of the resurrection harvest. He. “the first fruits of them that slept.” Ik-fore I got through this morning I will walk through all the cemeteries of the dead, through all the country grave* yards, where your loved ones are buried, and I w ill pluck off these flow ers. and I will drop a sweet promise of the Cos pel- a rose of hope, a 1 i I \ of joy on every tomb the child's tomb. th«- husband's tomb, the wife's tomb, tin- father's grave, the mother's gra\c. Ami while we ee!ebrtite the res urrection of Christ we will nt the same time celebrate the resurrection of all the good. “Christ, the first fruits of them that slent." If T should come to you nnd ask you for the nil Tims of the great conqueror* of the world, you would sav Alexander Cnesnr. Philip, Napoleon f. Ah. von’ tune forgotten to mention the name of a greater conqueror than all these <1 cruel, a ghastly conqueror. He rodi on a black horse across Waterloo nnd Chalons and Atlanta, the bloody hoofs crushing the hearts of nations, ft is the conqueror Death. He carries a black flag, and he takes no prisoners. He digs a trench across the hem isphere^ and fills it with n„. carcasses of nations. Fifty times would the world have been d< populated had not Hod kept making new generations. Fifty times the world woo'd have •wrung lifeless through the air > noman on the mountain, no man on .he sea. $fn abandoned ship pb.wlng th-ou rh immensity. Again .Vain h done tliis work with *1! generations. He is a monarch as well as a con queror; bin palace a sepulcher; his fountains the falling tears of a world P.bssed be Ood! In the light „( this Paster morning I see the prophecy that his scepter shall be broken and hi" palace rhall In- demolished. The 1,0,1 r ci,tiling when all who are in floor grs\» ^ shall eorne forth. ( hrlst r-.s-n, We shall rise. Jesus, "ihe fir*; fruits ' f them that slept." Now. a round this dog, rlne of i he res urrection f here are a great ma iv mys teries. \ on come to m • and sa v: "If the bodies of t he dead a re to tie raised, few is this and how Is that?" And you at>k me a thousand question* I am in I competent to answer. But ihere are a great many things you believe that you are not able to explain. You would be a very foolish inun to say: “I won’t believe anything I ran't understand.” Why, putting down one kind of flower seed, comes there up this flower of this color? Why, putting down nnother flower seed, comes there up a flower of this color? One flower white, an other flower yellow, another flower crimson. Why the difference when the seeds look to be very much alike—are very much alike? Explain these things. Explain that wart on the Anger. Ex plain the difference why the oak leaf Is different from the leaf of the hick ory. Tell me how the Lord Almighty ean turn the chariot of Bis omnipo tence on a rose leaf. You ask me ques tions about the resurrection I cannot answer. I will ask you a thousand questions about everyday life you can not. answer. I find my strength in this passage: “All who are in their graves shall come forth.” I do not pretend to make the explanation. You go on and say: “Suppose a returned mis sionary dies in this city. When he was in China, his foot was ampu tated; he lived years nfter in Eng land. and there he hail an arm ampu tated; he is buried to-dny in yonder cemetery. In the resurrection will the foot come from China, will the arm come from England, and will the different parts of the body he re constructed in the resurrection? How is that possible?** You have noticed. T suppose, in reading tJie story of the resurrection that almost every account of the Bible gives the idea that the charac teristic of that (lay will be a great sound. I do not know that it will be very loud, but I know it will be very penetrating. In the mausoleum where silence has reigned a thousand years that voice must penetrate. In the coral cave of the deep that voice must penetrate. Millions of spirits will come through the gates of eternity, and they will come to the tombs of the earth, and they will erv: “(live us buck our bodies; we gave them to you in corruption; sur render them now in incorrupt ion.” Hundreds of spirits hovering about the fields of Gettysburg, for there the bodies are buried. A hundred thousand spirits coming to Green wood, for there the bodies are buried, waiting for the reunion of body und soul. All along the sea route from New ^ ork to Liverpool, at every few mile" where a steamer went down, depart ed spirits coming back, hovering over the wave. There is where the City of Boston perished. Found at last. There is where the President per ished. Steamer found at last. There is where the Central America went down. Spirits hovering, hundreds of spirits hovering, waiting for the re union of body and soul. Out on the prairie a spirit alights. . There is where a traveler died in the snow'. Crash goes Westminster abbey, and the poets and the orators come forth; wonderful mingling of good ar.d bad. ( rash go the pyramids of I'-gypL and the monarehs come forth. Who can sketch the scene? I sup pose that one moment before that general rising there will be an entire silence, save as you bear the grinding of a wheel or the clatter of the hoofs of a procession passing into the cem etery. Silence in all the eaves of the earth. Silence on the side of the mountain. Silence down in the val leys and far out into tlie sen. Silence. But in a moment, in the twinkling of an eve, as the archangel's trumpet comes pealing. rolling, crashing, across tlie mounlain and sea. the earth will give one terrific shudder, and the graves of the dead will heave like the waves of the sen. and Ostend. Sevastopol and Chalons will stalk forth in the lurid air. and the drowned will eome up and wring out their wet locks above the billows, and all tiie land and all the sea become one moving mass of life—all faces, all ages, all conditions, gazing hi one direction and upon one throne -the throne of resurrection. "All who are in their graves shall eome forth.” 'But. you say. "if this doctrine of the resurrection is true, as prefigured by this Master morning, can you fell us something about tlie resurrected body?" I can. There uve mysteries about that, lint I shall tell you three or four tilings in regard to flic res urrected body that are beyond guess ing and beyond mistake. In the first place, I remark in re gard to your resurrected body, it will be a glorious body. The body we have now is n mere skeleton of whnt it would have been if sin had not marred and defaced it. Take the most exquisite statue that was ever made Ivy an artist and chip if here and chip i» there with n chisel, and batter and bruise it here and there and then stand it out in the storms of a hundred years, and the beauty would lie gone. Well, the human body has been chipped and battered and bruised and damaged with the storms of thousands of years the physical defects of other generations coming down from generation to gen | err*tion, w> inherit; ■ the infelicities I •' •" '“HUM. '' it in the morn in* of the resurrect ion the bodv will l»e adorned and beautified accord in* to the original model. And there U tif» such difTerenee between a *ymnast and .in emaciated wretch in t | aretto as 'here will i,(. a difTerenee between our bodies a* they are now and our resurrected forms. There mui will see the perfect eye after tin waters of death have washed out the Mains of tears and study. '|'l,ore you "ill *»•*• the perfect hand after the knots of foil have been untied from ♦he knuckle*. There you will see the form erect, and elastic after the bur dens lune (tone otT the shoulder t In very life of C»od in the body. In this world the most impressive'thing, the most expressive thing, is the. human face, but that face is veiled with the griefs of a thousand years. But in the resurrection morn that veil will be taken away from the face, and the noonday sun is dull and dim and stupid compared with the outflnming glories of the countenances of ths saved. When those faces of the righteous, those resurrected faces, turn toward the gate or look up to ward the throne, it will Ik* like the dawning of a new morning on the bosom of everlasting day. O glorious, resurrected body! But I remark, also, in regard to that body which you are to get in the resur rection, it will be an important, body. These bodies are wasting away. Some body has said that as soon as we begin to live we begin to die. I'n less we keep putting the fuel into the furnace the furnace dies out. The blood vessels are canals taking the breadstuff's to all parts of the system. We must be reconstructed hour by hour, day by day. Sickness and death are all the time trying to get their pry under the tenement or to push us off t he embank ment of the grave. But, blessed be (iod, in the resurrection we will get a body immortal. Xo malaria in the air, no cough, no neuralgic twinge, no rheumatic pang, no fluttering of the heart, no shortness of breuth, no ain bulance, no dispensary, no hospital, no invalid's chair, no spectacles to im prove the dim vision, but health, im mortal health! O ve who have aches ami pains indescribable this morning, ye who are never well, ye who are lacerated with physical distress, let me tell you of the resurrected body, tree from all disease, immortal! Jm mortal! I go further and say in regard to that body which you are to get in the resurrection,it will be a vigorous body. We walk now eight or ten miles, ami we n-re fatigued; we lift n few hundred pounds, and we are exhausted; un armed, we meet a wild beast, nnd we must run or flee or climb or dodge be cause we are incompetent to meet it; we toil eight or ten hours energentioal ly, and then we are weary. But in the resurrection we are to have a body that never gets tired. Is it not a glori ous thought? Plenty of occupation in Heaven. I suppose Broadway, New York, in the busiest season of the year at noonday is not so busy ns Heaven is all the time. Grand projects of mercy for other worlds. Victories to be cele brated. The downfall of despotism on earth to he announced. Great songs to he leaxned nnd sung. Grent expedi tions on which God shall send forth His children. Plenty to do, hut no fatigue. If you are seated under the trees of life, it will not he to rest, but to talk over with some old comrade old times—the hattlty* where you fought shoulder to shoulder. Sometimes in this world we feel we would like to have such a body as that. There is so much work to be done for Christ, there are so many tears to be wiped away, there are so many bur dens to life, there is so much to be achieved for Christ, we sometimes wish that from the first of January to the last of December we could toil on without stopping to sleep or to take any recreation or to rest or even to take food—that we could toil right on without stopping a moment in our work of commending Christ and Heaven to ull the people. But we all get tired. It is a characteristic of the human body in this condition; we must got tired. Is it not a glorious thought that we are going to have a body that will never grow weary? O glorious icsurreetion day! Gladly will I fling aside this poor body of sin and fling it. into the tomb if at thy bidding I shall have a body that never wearies. That is a splendid resurrection hymn that we have all sung: So Jesus slept. God s dying Son Passed through the grave and blessed the bed. Rest here, blest saint, till from His throne The mornlrg breaks to pierce the shade. (> blessed resurrection! Speak out, sweet flowers, beautiful flowers! While you tell of a risen Christ tell of the righteous who shall rise. May God (ill you this morning with anticipa t ion! 1 heard of a father and son who among others were shipwrecked at sea. The father nnd the son climbed into the rigging. The father held on, hut the son lifter awhile lost his hold on the rigging and was dashed down. The fat hpr supposed he had gone hope lessly under the wave. The next day the father was brought ashore from the rigging in an exhausted state and laid on a lied in a fisherman's hut. and after ninny hours had passed he came t»* consciousness and saw lying beside him on the same bed his hoy. Oh. my friends, wlint a glorious thing if will he if we wake up at last to find our loved ones beside us. coming up from lhe same plot in the graveyard, coining up in the same morning light the fa ther anil son alive forever, nil the loved ones alive forever, neier more to weep, never more to part, never more to die. May the God of peace that brought again from the dead our I.ord Jesus, that great Shepherd of the sheep, j through the blood of the everlasting covenant make you perfect in every good work, to do His will, and let the associations of ♦his morning transport ol:r thoughts to the grander assem blage before t lie throne.
