i'< ii I m m a. S. OL. Jane 19.—Romors of
an expected outbreak of negroes iu Laor
ens county, which is in the northern part
of the State, reached here early this morn,
ing. Later in the day some excitement
in military circles was caused by the fact
of Gov. Richardson and the Adjutant Gen
eral having been appealed to for arms and
protection by the whites of Laurens coun
ty. Gov. Richarden received a commu
nication signed bv a number of white men
in I^iurens to the following effect.
J " "The negroes under the Hoover influ
ence were organized in the county and had
tormed a number of clnbs. Meetiugs were
held at night in churches from 12 to 2
o'clock, ami the buildings were surrounded
. by armed pickets. Very iucendiary
speeches were made. It was pro
posed that at a certain time a gen
eral uprising should take place in
the night; the white men and old
' women shonld be killed, while the white
girls would be taken as wives and the
children made to work. It is proposed to
burn the whites out and massacre them.
The negroes were all well armed, the arms
; being furnished by the clubs, and where
they came from is unknown. The mem
bers of the club arc bound by an oath to
secrecy, and to divulge anything is pun
' Lshable by death..".
The Itoveinor was told that an outbreak
was expected at any moment A company
: of cavalry, fifty strong, had been organ
ized, and the State was asked to immedi
ately send rifles and ammunition. A simi
lar communication was received at Adjt.
Gen. Kauham's otlice, but he is absent
from the city. Governor Richard
son immediately telegraphed Uanham
to return to Columbia, aud he sent a Col
onel on hts start" and Col. Scoflin, of the
Adjutant Geueral's otlice, to Laurens to
investigate the matter and report fully at
once. The Governor is prepared to put
one or two regiments of militia in the
couuty oh very short notice, and says that
if it is nece»ary all the troops of the State
. will be ordere«! nut, and he will himself go
to Laurens.
A STAGE ROBBERY.
1 lir«'«> Matked Men Hold l'p Missouri
Coach PuMugcrl for t'jJO.
Raldwik, St. Lona Co., Mo., June
. 11».—The Baldwin aud Manchester stage,
which runs from here to Barrett's, on the
Missouri Pacific, twice a day, was stopped
this afternoon, about 6 o'clock, when re
turning at about a mile from Barrett's by
three masked men. The men were con
cealed id the thick underbrush which
I skirts the road on both sides, near what Is
known as Sugar Creek Bridge, and as the
stage with its fifteen passengers approached
. tlie robbers advanced withdrawn revolvers
and ordere«! Mr. Benuett, the driver, to
stop and the passengers to fall in line
: There is some dispute as to the
nnml>er of men tctualiy engaged in the
robbery, some of the ptusenger* claiming
that there were six with drawn revolvers
t'oucealed in the underbrush, in case any
resistance should be offered. The masks
worn were made of red handkerchiefs,
with boles cut in them, and one man had
tbe sleeve of an undershirt drawn over his
head as the only covering. Considering
the amount of money and valuables the
robbers made a poor haul, securing only
tbout $200 out of au estimated |"J,SOU in
money and valuables in possession of the
passengers.

THOSE FLAGS.
The Baltimore Han Comments Upon the
President1» Evident Good Faith In the
Matter.
Washixttox, Jane 18.—The Baltimore
Sun, in commenting upon the rebel Hag
episode, nays: "The failure of the Presi
dent's laudable effort to promote the res
toration of harmony between the two great
sections of the country by the return of the
Confederate dags at the War Department to
the various Southern States is to be re
gretted because of the outburst of 'war
feeling' which it has unexpectedly occa
sioned. The Southern people had not
asked for, nor did they desire, the return
of the Hags, but they would have been
gratitied had the president's act in direct
ing their restoration received that hearty
and generous 'idorsemeut at the North
which recent incidents showing the ex
istence of a kinder feeling between the
two sections bad encouraged the Presi
dent to anticipate almost as a
matter of course. But the event shows
that however much disposed the South
may be tn join hands with the North in a
spirit of conciliation and forbearance, there
is still a considerable element at the North
which is nnwilliug to permit the removal
ot irritating memntoes of the war. The
incident is a most unfortunate one, for it
seems to contradict the effusive ntterauces
of postprandial orators at reunions ef ex
Union and ex-Confederate veterans
and to indicate the survival at j
the North in a marked degree of!
the ancient spirit of intolerance which we
had been encouraged to believe was rap
idly dying out all over the country. So
far as the President is concerned, his
friends will regret that however innocently
he has been forced into an attitnde which
may expose him to misconception on the
part of both sides to the controversy, it was
unfortunate that be should have been in
duced to give the order for the return of the
Hags without first satisfying himself of his
authority to do so, for his action in re
scinding the order will have the appear
ance, at least, of 'backing down' in the
face of popular clamor, but those who
have watched the President's course from
the beginning of his term will be satisfied
as to his sincerity in asserting as the reason
for the revocation of his order that he is
now convinced of the want of requisite au
thority to return the Hags."
FLAPDOODLE ABOUT THE FLAGS.
Tüsl'a Wliat a ti. A. It. Mud Cull» I lie Kuw
ttolug Mail«.
Washington, June 19.—"This flag
business," says a member of the G raud
Armv, 4,ia all a piece of sentimental llap
doodleisuo oud vapory gush that can not
be al" any good except to tire the Republi
can heart." The fact is that the g- o. p.
is in a nervous spasn? of anguish because
of the gradual dying out of all
war feelings and its inability
to realize on its stock in trade
which has so fearfully depreciated since
we have had a Democratic administration,
and is driving the cheap-johu statesmen of
that party into bankruptcy. 1 suspect
that the whole thing was hatched in the
brains of the Republican clerks ot the
War Department, who really suggested
the matter under the pretense ot con
ciliation, and set the trap to catch some
body, and that they are now laughing
at their cuteness. I do not know this,
but that is my guess. 1 shoidd say that
while the thiug is immaterial in all re
spect*, yet it would be an unwise step to
take, because it can not do the South any
good, and it only gives the Republican
howlers a chance to scream and alarm
some people, and thereby aid the Republi
can party in obscuring the live issues ot the
abolition of the war taxes. It is suggested
that hereafter the l*resident send all orders
of the several departments to the Governor
of Ohio for approval."
TRAGEDY ON THE OHIO.
Feur Italian* Kni;agtt iu a Fight While
Croaslug the Rlverand all ar* Drowned.
IBONTON, 0., June 19.—A startling
tragedy ww enacted near this city on
Friday night. Kazzazza, Manuel »t Co.,
au Italian lirrn, have the contract lor con
structing the Maysville and Hig Study
Railway. The men employe«! by the tirni
have been imported from Italy, and a
uiore «i«*pt:rale set of men were never
brought together. t^uarrcIn are of frequent
occurrence, a mi. many have been injured.
At 10:.'iu o'clock last night four of the
men left the Kentucky shore and came
over to this city in a skiff. They visited
a number of saloons and all became
fighting drunk.
They wandered about town, raising dis
turbances at various saloons, until mid
night, when they starte«! for the river. On
their way to the point where their skiff was
tied, the men had a rough-and-tumble
tight, aud oue man was knocke«! over aud
appeared to be badly hurt. His compan
ions dragged hun to the boat and started
across. Thev had hardly pushed off when
the quarrel was renewed, and the few pco
pie about the river at that hour heard a
shot, followed by a scream of anguish, then
a sound as of a struggle, followed by quiet.
No effort was made by those who heard
the disturluuice to ascertain its cause or
result, as the Italians had uo friends among
them.
This morning one of the bosses came
over to look for the men who had not re
turned to camp. On hearing of lust night's
disturbance he at one« instituted a search
of the river, and late to-day the boat,
blotxl-bespattered, was fount! a few miles
down, but no sign of the occupants were
discovered. Some little search was made
for the bodies of the men, but so far with
out success. It is learned that two of the
men had frequent quarrels, and each bad
threatened the life ot the other.
The theory is that the old quarrel was
revive*!, when oue shot the other. A gen
eral row followed, in which the boat cap
sized, throwing the drnnken lighters into
the river. They were nnable to swim, so
all lost their lives.
MUllDEKED IN THE DARK.
Tragedy on the SJ»ln uf a Country Hotel
That Cause« Scandal.
MlDl>Lrro\vx, N. Y., June 19.—Mr?.
Sarah J. Wasim, a fair young widow, who
keeps a hotel and summer resort for city
people in the village of Liberty, and all ol
her guest«* were startled out of their slum
bers at one o'clock this morning by two
pistol shots from the secoud door stairway.
On rushing into the hall they found John
Wales, a prominent retired merchant ol
the town, lying on the stairs mortally
wounded, while at the head of the tlighl
stood Curtis Fiske, another oonspicuouj
citizen, with a pistol in his band.
Wales was carried quickly to his home,
where he expired one hoar later, leaving a
widow and two children.
Fiske admitted the shooting, and plead
ed that it was doue under the impression
that Wales was a burglar, intent upon rob
bery and perhaps murder.
Later in the day he was lodged in th<
county jail at Monticelo to await the ac
tion of the Grand Jury.
Fiske, who is a young, nnmarried man
bas been a pretty constant visitor at th<
handsome widow's hotel, and rumor hat
it that the two were soon to be married
Wales, although a husband and father, hat
been so persistent in bis attentions to th<
attractive widow as to occasion mnct
m.qn.ui in the town. The two men bon
hard feelings toward each other, and 01
Monday last had an altercation, in tbt
coarse of which Wales accused Fiske o
slandering liim to the widow's ears and
threatened vengeance if he repeated the
offence.
Fiske occupied a room on the second floor
of the hotel laat night. No third party, so
far as is now known, witnessed the fatal
affray. Wales was unconscious and speech
less till be died, and his side of the story
will remûn untold.
Fiske says that he was awakened from
sleep by the movements of someone crawl
ing stealthily up the stairs. Opening his
door, and catching in the dim light a view
of a man's figure, he felt jnstified iu shoot
ing the marauder, as he did, without warn
ing
Other inmates of the hotel say that just
previous to the pistol reports they beard
the voices of two men in angry alterca
tion.
Two wounds, either of which was fatal,
inbicted by shots from a 32-calibre pistol,
were found at the post mortem on Wales'
.body, one bullet entering the brain
through the left eye and the other pierce
iag the throat.
When the wounded man's coat was re
moved, iu one outside pocket was found a
loaded revolver and in the other an insect
bellows such as is used for injecting ver
min poison iuto crevices, which was loaded
with Cayenne pepper. What purpose the
deceased man lia<| in entering the house
stealthily and carrying such things is a
matter of simple conjecture.
The affair, owing to the high standing
of the parties, creates intense excitement
throughout the neighboring county. Fiske
is collector of the town and Trustee of the
village of Liberty and previous to this,sad
afl'iur has been held in high esteem. Wales
is one of the well known family of tanners
who have long carried on business in
Sullivan county and in the Swamp in New
York city.

Brooklyn, Juue 19.—Thit morning at
the Tabernacle the Rev. T. D. Witt Tal
mage read, previous to th<* sermon, ora
tions of Scripture descriptive of ancient
cities, and gave ont the hymn:
"Fields are white, the harvest wailing.
Who will bear the sheaves away?"
His text was: ''And the meu of the
city said auto Eiisha, Behold, i pray thee,
the situation of this city is pleasant, as my
Lord seeth; but the water .is naught, and
the ground barren. And he said, Bring
me a new cruse and put salt therein. And
he went forth unto the spring of the waters
and cast the salt iu there, and said, Thus
said the Lord, I have healed these waters :
there shall not be from thence any more
death or barren land. So the waters were
healed nnto this day."—II Kings, ii, 19
'22. Dr. Tal mage said:
It is difficult to estimate how much of
the prosperity and health of a city are de
pendent upon
UOOD WATER.
The time when, through well-laid pipes
and from a safe reservoir, au abundance of
water, from Croton, or Kidgewood, or
Schuylkill is brought into the city, is ap
propriately celebrated with oration and
pyrotechnic display. Thank God every
day for clear, bright, beautiful, sparkling
water, as it drops in shower, or tosses up
in the fountain, or rushes out at the
hydrant.
The city of Jericho, notwithstanding all
its physical aud commercial advantages,
was lacking in this important element.
There was enough water, but it was dis
eased, and the people were crying
out by reason thereof. Klisha
the prophet comes to the
rescue. He says: "Get me a new cruse;
till it with salt und bring if to me." Ho the
cruse of salt was brought to the prophet,
and I see liim walking out to the general
reservoir,and betake« that saltand throws
it iuto the reservoir, aud lo! all the im
purities depart, through a supernatural
and divine influence, and the waters are
good and tresh and clear, and all the peo
ple clap their hands and lift up their voices
in the gladness. Water for Jericho—clear,
bright, beautiful, God-given water!
At different times I have pointed out to
you the fouutains of
MDNK'IPAI. «•ORl:l'l»TION*,
aud this morning 1 propose to show you
what are the means lor the rectification of
those fountains- There are four or five
kiuds ot salt that have a cleansing ten
dency. So far as God may help nie, I shall
bring a cruse of salt to the work, and
empty it iuto the great reservoir ot muni
cipal crime, sin, and shame, ignorance and
abomination.
In this work of clcausing our cities. I
have first to remark, that there is a work
for the broom and the shovel that nothing
else can do. There always hu been an
intimate connection lietween iniquity aud
dirt. The filthy parts of the great cities
are always the most iniquitous parts.
The glitten» aud the paveuieuts of the
Fourth ward. New Vork, illustrate and
symbolize the character of the pu>plc in
the Fourth ward.
The first thing that a had man docs
when he is couvert«! is thoroughly to
wash himself. There were, this morning,
on the way to the dilterent churches,
thousands ol men in proper apparel who,
before their conversion, were unfit in their
Sabbath dress. When on the Sabbath 1
see a man uncleanly in his dress, my sus
picions in regard to his moral character
are aroused, and they are always well
founded. So as to allow no
excuse for lack of ablution, (rod
has cleft the «-ontinents with
rivers and lakes, and has sunk five great
oceans, and all the world ouuht to l>e
clean. Away, then, with the dirt from
our cities, not ouly because the physical
health needs an ablution, bnt because all
the great moral and religious interesta of
the cities demand it as a positive necessity.
A filthy city always has been and always
will be a wicked city.
Through the upturning of the earth for
great improvement onr city could not be
expected to he as cleau as usual, but for
the illimitable dirt of Brooklyn for the
last six months there can be no excuse.
It is not merely a matter of dust in the
eyes, and mud for the shoes, and of stench
for the nostrils, but of morals for the soul.
Another corrective iutluence that we
would hriug to bear upou the evils of our
ureat cities is
A CHRISTIAN PRINTINO-I'BBSS.
The newspaper« of any pluse are the
test of morality or immorality. The
newsboy who rati-» along the street witli a
roll of papers under his m is a tremen
dous force that cannot be tarne«! aside nor
resisted, and at his every step the city is
elevated or degraded. This hnugry, all
devouring American mind must have
something to read, and npon editors and
authors and hook-publishers and parent«
and teachers rest« the responsibility of
what they shall read. Almost every man
you meet ban a l>ook in his hand or a
news-paper in his pocket. What book is
it you have in jour hand ? What news
paper is it yon have in your pocket? Min
isters may preach, reformers may plan,
philantropists may toil tor the elevation
of the suffering and the criminal, but un
til all the news papers of the land and all
the booksellers of the land set themselves
r against au iniquitous literature—until
' I then we shall be lighting against fearful
odds. Every time the cylinder of our
great publishing bouses turn, they make
the earth quake. From them goes forth
a thought like an angel of light to feed
and bless the world, or like an angel of
darkness to smite it with corruption and
sin and shame and death. May <}od by
His omnipotent Spirit purify and elevate
> the American printing-prow.
l I go on lurther and sa? that we must de
! pend upon
I THE SCHOOL
for a great deal of correcting influence.
Community can no more afford to have ig
norant men in its midst than it can afford
to bave uncaged hyenas Ignorance is the
mother of hydra-headed crime. Thirty-one
per cent, of all the criminals of New York
State can neither read nor write. Intel
lectual darkness is generally the precursor
of moral darkness. I know there are edu
cated outlaws—men wbo, through their
I sharpness of intellect, are made more dan
) gérons. They tue their fine penmanship
I in signing other people's names, and their
s science in ingénions burglaries, and their
1 fine mannen in adroit libertinism. They
t go tbeir round of sin with well cnt ap
t parel, and dangling jewelry, and watches
of eighteen karats, and kid gloves. They
are refined, educated, magnificent villains.
But that is the exception. It Is generally
the case that the criminal classes are as ig
norant as they are wicked. For the prool
ot what I say, go into tbe prisons and the
penitentiaries, and look npon tbe men and
women incarcerated. Tbe dishonesty in
- the eye, tbe low passion in tbe lip, are not
» more conspicuous than tbe ignorance in
s tbe lorebmd. The ignorant dames arc
! alwavs the dangerous classes. DemAgogn»
i marshal them. Tbey are bel ml ess, ajx'
: are driven before tbe* gale.
e Itis high time that all city and Stab
s authorities, as well as tbe Federal Govern
g ment, appreciate tbe awfal statistics thai
{ while years ago in this country there wer«
sei apart forty-eight millions of »er« o
land for school purposes, there are now in
New England one hundred and ninety
one tnousand people who can neither read
nor write, and in the State of Pennsylva
nia two hundred and twenty-one thousand
who can neither read nor write, and in the
State of New York two hundred and forty
one thousand who eau neither read nor
write, while in the United States there are
nearly six million:« who cau neither read
nor write. Statistics enough to stagger
and confound any man who love« hi* Uod
and his country. Now, in view of this
fact, I am in favor of compulsory educa
tion. When the parents are mi bestial as
to neglect this duty to the child, I
say the law, with a strong band, at
the same time with a gentle
hand, ought to lead these little ones into
the light of intelligence and good morals.
It was a beautiful tableau when in our
city a swarthy policeman having picked
up a lost child iu the street, was found ap
peasing its crie9 with a stick of candy he
had bought at the apple-stand. That was
well done, and beantifully doue. But, oh!
these thousands ot little ones through our
streets, who are
CITING FOB Tl^K HR KAI) OK lUTOWLKDGK
and*inteliigence. Shall we not give it to
them? The officers of the law onght to go
down into the cellars, and np into the gar
rets, aud bring out these benighted lit
tle ones, and put them nnder educational
influences; after they have passed through
the bath aud under the comb, putting be
fore them the spelling-book, and teaching
theiu to rerd the Lord's Prayer and the
Sermon on the Monut: "Blessed are the
poor in spirit, for theirs is the kiogdom of
heaven." Our city ought to be father and
mother both to these outcast little oues.
As a recipe for the enre of much of this
woe, and waut, and crime of our city, I
give the words which Thorwaldson had
chiseled on the open scroll in the hand of
the statue of John Gutenberg, the inventor
of the art of printing: "Let there be
light!"
Still further:
REFORMATORY SOCIETIES
are an importaut element in the rectifica
tion of the public fountains. Without
calling any of them by name, I refer more
especially to those which recognize the
physical as well as the moral woes of the
world. There was pathos and a great deal
of common sense in what the poor woman
said to Dr. Guthrie when he was telling
her what a very good womau she ought to
he. "Oh," she said, "if yon were as
hungry and cold as I am, yon could think
of nothiugelse " I believe the great want
of our city is the Gospel and something to
eat. Faith and repeutauce are of infinite
importance, but thev cannot satisfy an
empty stomach! You have to go forth in
this work with the bread of eternal life in
your right hand, and the bread of this lite
in your letl hand, and then you can touch
them, imitating the I«ord Jesus Christ,
who first broke the bread and fed the mul
titude in the wilderness aud then beg,hi to
preach, recognizing the fact that while
people are hungry they will not listen, and *
they will not repent. " We want more com
mon sense in the distribution of our chari
ties; fewer magnificent theories aud more
hard work.
Still further: The great reuie.lial influ
ence is
THE <K)SVEI. OK CHRIST.
Take that down through the lanes of suf
fering. Take that down ainid the hovels
of sin. Take that up amid the mansions
aud palaces of your city. That is the salt
that can cure all the poisoned fountains of
public iniquity. l)o you know that in
this cluster of three cities, New York, Jer
sey City, and Brooklyn, there are a great
multitude ot homeless children? You see
I speak more in regard to the yonth and
the children of the country, because old
villains are seldom reformed, and there
fore 1 talk more about the little oues.
They sleep under the stoops, in the burn
ed-out safe, in the wagons in the streets,
on the barges, whoever they can get a
board to cover them. And in the summer
they sleep all night long in the parks.
Their destitution is well set forth by an inci
dent. A city missionary asked one ot them:
"Where is your home?" Said: "I don't
have no home, sir." "Well, where are
your father and mother?" "They are
dead, sir." "Did you ever hear of Jesus
Christ?" "No, I don't think I ever heard
of Him." "Did you ever hear of God?"
"Yes, I've heard of God. Some of the
poor people t hink it kind of lucky at night
to say something over altoiit that Itefore
they go to sleep. Yes, sir, I've heard of
Him." Think ol a conversation like that
in a Christian city.
HOW MANY AUK WAITINfl
lor you to «»me oat in the spirit of the
Lord Jesus Christ ami rescue them from
their wretchedness here! Oh that th.
Church of (iotl had arms long enough and
heart« warm enough to tike them up! How
mauy of theiu there are! Ah I wa« think
ing of the subject thin morning, it (teemed
to me a« though there was a great lirink,
and that the.se little ones with cut and
torn feet were coming on toward it. And
here is a group of orphans. ( », fathers and
mothers, what do you think of these fath
erless and motherless little onus? No
hand at home to takecarcof thesr apparel,
no heart to pity them. Said one little
one, when the mother died: "Who will
take care of my clothes now?'' The little
ones are thrown out in this great, cold
world. They are shivering on the brink
like lambs on the verge of a precipice.
Does not your blood run cold as they go
over it?
And here is another group that come on
toward the precipice. They are the chil
dren of besotted parent*. They are worse
ort than orphans. l/ook at that pale cheek :
woe bleached it. I<ook at that gash arrow
the forehead; the father struck it. Hear
th«t heart-piercing cry; a drunken moth
er's blasphemy compelled it. And we
come out and we say: "O ye suffering,
peeled and blistered ones, we come to help
you." "Too late!" cry thousands of
voices. "The path we travel is steep
down, and we can't stop. Too late !"
And we catch our breath and we make a
terrific outcry. "Too late !" is echoed
from tjie garret to the cellar, from the
gin-shop and from the brothel. "Too
late !'' It is too late, and they go over.
Here is another group,
AS ABM V Of !a)OI.INTKQ ruil.IiHK.V.
They oome on toward the brink, and
every time they step ten thousand hearts
break The ground is ml with the blood
of^h*irfeet. Theairis heavy with their
groans Their ranks are being filled up
trom ill the houses of inûjnits and shame.
Skeleton iJespair poshe* them toward the
brink. The death-knell has already begin
to toll, and the angeLi of (»od hover like
birds over the plunge of a cataract
While these children are on the hrink
they halt, and throw oat their hand, and
cry: "Help! help!" O Church of Ood,
will you help! Men and worn« bought
by the blood of the Hon of Go.?, will yon
help? while Chriat crie« from the heavens
"Save them from going down; I am th*
ransom. "
I stopped on the street aid just looked
at the face ofuoe of those little ones. Have
you ever examined the facea of the ne
glected children of the poor? Othei
children have gladness in their faces
When a group of them rush across thi
road, it seems » though a spring gust
had unloosened an orchard of apple blos
soms. But these children of the poor.
There w but little ring in theii
laughter, and it stop cjuick, m
though some hitter memory tripped it.
They have an old walk. Tb*y dc
not skip or run up on the lumber just fa
the pleasure of jumping down. Tber nerei
hathed in the mounUin stream. The]
never waded in the brook for pebbles
TTiey never chased tl»e butterfly across thi
lawn, putting their hat right down when
it was just before. Childhood has heei
dashed oat of them. Want waved its wiz
ard wand above the manger of their birth
and withered leaves are lying where Go*
intended a budding gi&Qt of battle. Oao
in a while one of these children get« out
Here is one, for instance. At ten years of
age he is sent ont by his parents, who aar
to him: "Here is a basket—now jjooff
and
BEG AXD STEAL."
The boy says: 'T can't steal." Tbey
kick him into a corner. That night be
puts his swollen bead into the straw; bot
a voice comes from heaven, saying: "Cour
age, poor boy, courage!" Covering up his
head trom the bestiality, and stopping his
ears from the cursing, he gets on up better
and better. He washes his face clean at
the public hydrant With a- few pennies
got at running errands, he gets
a better coat Rough men, knowing that
he comes Irom a low street, say: "Back
with you, yon little villain, to the place
where you came from." But that night
the boy says: "God help nie. I can't go
back," and quicker than ever mother flew
at the cry of a child's paiu, the I A>rds re
sponds from the heavens: "Courage, poor
hoy, courage !" His bright face gets him a
position. After a while he is second
clerk. Years pass on, and he is first clerk.
Years pass on. The glory of young man
hood is ou him. He comes into the Arm.
He goes on from one business success to
another. He has achieved great foitune.
He is the friend of the church of God, the
friend of all good institutions, and ore day
be stands talking to the Board of Trade,
or to the Chamber of Commerce. People
say: "Do you know who that is? Why,
that is a merchant prim«, and he was born
on Elm street." But God says in regard
to him something better that that: "These
are th«y which (»me out of great tribula
tion, and had their robe? washed and made
white in the blood ot the Lamb." O, for
some one to write the history of hoy heroes
and girl heroines who have triumphed over
want audstarvation, and filth and rags!
Yea, the record lias already been made—
made by the hand of God ; and when these
shall come at last with songs and rejoicing,
it will take a very brood banner to hold
the names of all the battle-fields on which
they got the victory.
Some years ajjo
A Rot'UHLYHTAD, RAOOEP BOY
came into my brother's office ia NewYork,
and tuiid : "Mr. Talmage, lend me five
dollars." My brother said: "Who are
you?" The boy replied: "I am noltody.
l^nd me live dollars. " "What do you
waut to do with live dollars?" "Well," the
noy replied, "my mother is sick and poor,
and I want to g" into the newspaper busi
ness, and I shall «et a home for her, aud I
will pay you back." My brother gave hiiu
the $ô, of course never expesting to see it
again, but he said: "When will you pay
it?" The boy said: "I will pay it iu six
months, sir." Time went by, and one
day a lad came into my brother's office and
said: "There's your live dollars." "What
do yon mean? What live dollars?" in
quired my brother. "Don't you remem
ber that a boy came in here six mouths
ago and wanted to borrow $5 to go into
the newspaper business?" "Oh, yes, 1 re
member; are you the lad?" "Yes," he
replied, "I have got along nicely. 1 have
got a nice home for tny mother (she is
sick yet, ) aud 1 am as well clothed as you
are, and there's your $*>?" Oh. was he
not worth saving? Why that lad is
WORTH PIKTY HL'CU BOYS
as I have sometimes seeu moving in ele
gant circl«*, never pnt t«> any nw for God
or man. Worth Having! I go farther than
»hat: and tell yon they are not
only worth saving, but they are being
saved. One of these lad* picked up from
our streets, and sent West by a Iwnevo*
lent society, wrote Kant Having: "I am
getting alone first rate. I am on prol»*
tien in the Methodist Church. I shall lie
entered ax ame'iiher the lirai of the month.
I now teach a Sunday-school da«« of eleven

If the hoy* running around the streets
with n blacking-box on their shoulder, or
a bundle ol pa|>ers under their arms, only
knew what high old time« we lioys have
out here, they wouldn't hesitate about
coming Went, lint come the first chance
»hey got." So some by one humane and
Christian visitation, and some by another,
are
UKINll UEWi'KI).
In the reform school. through which two
thousand of the little ont« paused, one
thousand nine hundred and ninety-live
turned out well. In other words, only
live of the two thousand turned out l>adly.
There are thousands of them who, through
Christiau s.icieties, have lieen transplanted
to bcantifnl homes all over this land, and
there are many who, through the rich
grace of our I/ord Jesus Christ, have al
ready won the crown. A little girl was
found in the streets of Baltimore and taken
into one of the reform societies, and they
said to her: "What is your name?'' She
said; "My name Is Mary." "What is your
other name?'' She said: "I doot know."
Ho they took her into the relorm society,
and as they diil not know her last name
they always called her "Mary Lmt,"
aim« she had 1k*ii picked np out of the
street. Hut she grew ou, and after awhile
the Holy Spirit tainr to her heart, and she
Ixrome a Christian child, and sbe c hanged
lier name; and when anybody asked her
what her name was, she said: "It uswl
to he Mary I/jst; bat now, since I have
IxM-oiue a Christian, it is Mary Found."
l or this vast multitude, are we willing
to go forth from this morning's servi«»
and see what we can do, employing all the
agencin* I have spoken of for the rectifica
tion of the poisoned fountains? We liv
in a Iteautiful city. The line« have fallen

The Weather Crap Itullalla.
Washixoton*, I). C., Jane 1».—Th«
Signal office ha* issued ih« following
weather bulletin for the week ending June
lHth:
Temperature:—For the week en.ling I one
IHth, the weather has U«en wanner than the
average for the preceeding week, except at
stations on the Atlantic and Gulf coast, iu
the West «Juif Slat«* aud on the Pacific
coast north of Han Francisco. Iu the wheat
and corn region* of the North the «tOM of
temperature for the week has been Itom
'25 to 30 degrees, au average daily exceaa
above the normal of from I to 10 degree*.
The greatest ex com of temperature oc
curred in the Northwest, and the weather
conditions of the woek are reported as
especially favorable for corn and wh«at,ex
cept iu section* ol Illinois, lowaaud East
era Missouri, where all crops except corn
have l>een more or les* injured by the
drought. In the cotton regions the tetu
perature has differed «lightly from normal,
except in Arkansas and Texan, where tin
daily average has heeu from '2 tu :< degree*
cooler than usual. Iii the tobacco region
wont of the Alleghenie* the daily exceaa of
temperature rangt« from .'t to I degrees, •
while to the east waul it hau differed bai
slightly from normal for the week.
The te nperature for the acA»ou Iront
January 1. to June 1H. 1*H? in the Cotton
and coru regions has been in excess the
daily average, rauging to '2 degrees, while
on the South-Atlantic and North-Pacific
roasts and in Northern California Ihn
(«.•uiperaturc for the season has been slight
ly below normal.
Kainfall during the week. There ha«
lieeu a deflcience of Hainfall generally,
throughout Agricultural region«, east
ol the Rocky Mountain«, except in eoction*
of Michigan, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Ne
braska and Kausas, where «light exceeaen
are reported. The greatest deficiency of
rainfall occurred in the Southern States,
l/iwer Ohio and Ontral Mississippi val
leys. This deficiency in tlie cotton region
ha* probably not as yet affected that crop
unfavorably, owing to the numerous and
well distributed shower« of the paat week,
hut reports generally «how that wore rain
is needed ill that section. Slight
deficiencies of rainfall are also report«!
iu New Kngland, but generally
throughout the northern State* numeroua
and well distributed showers have oc
curred, except iu Illinoi«, where rain hi
much needed. The large seasonal defi
ciency of rainfall in the southern Statea
has been increased during the week, and
now ranges from ten to «ixtceii inchea iu »
the cotton region. The seasonal deficieney
in lllinoi« und Southern Wiaconain ex
ceeds five iucht-s, while au exc«sa of five
inches is reftorted from the North Pacific
Const and the upper Ohio Valley.
General remark*—The week liaa keen
