Kov. Jlyiou V, Iteed in a re cent M'lmoti on "lsbmat'l,1' preach ed nt Uonvei, Col. said: It is t'speciallj Lard for menu men to believe i:i forgiveness. It is not eiisj' tor niij bod.v. Few wliite lien will tin -st an Indian ; few In dians will trust a white innil. After 250 years of two toneriied business the pi si ii t ot conliileuci) m tienrly killed. It is a il iiil ot slow gtowtli anv way. In one of his ploys, Sir. Brown ing iiinkes one of Lis men sn,: "I do forgive yoiij" and lite other an pwei : "Wait and ponder thut pirat oid." .We are .taught, to lirayj "Father, lorgive our liesjiosses as e forgive those whit lres(uiss anin.st tis."' Uow tlo we lorgive those who trespass against lis f well I Inn t a mail say ol another: "1 do not wish to have anything more to dn well him. the world is wide." There is a jsnod deal ot that kind of torjineness. Tlmt is hat il ly the kind we ask from God that lie will not have anvthiii more to do wiih us. When men qtiurrel as the herdsmen of Abraham and Lot,' lind conclude to jfo apart, one to the east and one to the west, that is better Ihnn fi I t i 1 1 1?. JJtit it is only feasible on a thinly settled earth. THeenrt.li Is getting small. The men on it ui e titcat travelers. We have- ro meet pretty often. On- atiort hns given pliice to living tojietner. jjood deal ot foi'fiive ness is not the penuine tiling. Men bniy the hatchet, but they know where they buried it. I Ley keep thut grave K'een. Suppose men quarrel si:i tit'ies and make pence tii x tunes, and miry mi nntci'eis. Now they qnartel the seventh time. It is not one hatchet that 1 see brandished, but seven. There lints been no final funeial of anv one hatchet. I iiah see mi En -lisliuian and not thiuk ot the atti tnile of Eimlaml to us iu 1803, or 1812 or in 17T0. But let some new occasion for arm's arise b'etween us and England, and 1 wi'l tliitik of every gi iovanfce from I lie earliest dasof tho colonists down. Time has no eflect on a wrong. I can think of things (hat happened to me as a boy and become as hot over them its ever. There are men wli'o t!0 around wiih bullets in t Leui. They may not as a general Ihifig be painful. They are now ami then. Tlio men know when they aie. Charles Dickens' once said life is too short to hate anybody ill. That is hardly satisfactory. I suppose that ho meant that I here are so many great things to tliiuk of, I cannot nHoid to give up space to a sui ill thing. One does not like o be lorgiven because lie is insignifi cant. One does uul Use to i put out of the window as Uncle Toby jnit out the fly, saving "Go, poor devil." ' There is not lunch real for giveness among men. The relatiou ot one nation lo another suggests the relaiiou of the lion lamer in the cage nidi the lion. It looks peace ful; but I iietice that he lias his eye I on them and they occasionally cast an eye on Liiu; it is not a sheep's eye, "either, sad 1 uudeistaud that there is a red do; iron M)Kcr nanny. I was reading of two miners, joiul owner of a cabiu joint partners iu work arid fest. OifedJy they quarreled abont something or other, too much saleratds in the bison it, perhaps. They ent about their work silent and plain for i day or two, aud then one rose in the night; took a wet rsg" ami mopped out the line ot division, and tbeii slang the personal efiecls mound promiscuously. I'eae was declar ed. After that, when the relations were strained between the partners nothing would be said. One or the other would take the chalk mid re store the white tin of the frontier. This was all very well but for one thing. It was noticed that af ter this white hue had been rubbed out a few times that there was a faint white streak that a wash rag did not remove. Even after vigor ous rubbing there was still a trace of division. I think this shows well enough the peril of the begin ning of a quarrel. There is, I belio.ve, no prejudice against color. Nobody had any prejudice against Cleopatra. Men ot color are social equals in all countries where the !olor does not suggest a slave. The American white man can remember when black was the badge of n slave. Tin-colored man can remember the same thing. Feruajis by iiri.tl by, when there is no white man living who has seen a slave, and no color ed man who has seen a master, the question of equality will be easier. The stealing of men, the idave trade, has put a wide gu.'f between those who stole and those who were stolen. There is a feeling of injury received and ot injury done. It i.i natural to hate those who have in jured us. An i it is nntiinti to hate more those wo have injured. It is complained that the negro does not exhibit .much gratitude for his freedom. Well, to men, why should he f If I were released from prison, to which I had been unjustly committed. I should not bo grateful. Uul thinking more deep ly on this matter I see il light. Suppose a thoughtful colored man looks at (he graves ot which slave ry was the occasion. It, seems to me. that (he North and South have paid pretty dearly for their sins. Blood mid tears. And suppose black und v; lii to together think tiiis. Crliel as the slave trade was, it has been the means of all that makes I he difference between the colored citizen of the United States aud a black Savage of Africa. ..It was. in tile ('lii1 d good thing Joseph as sold into Egypt. Thought on' the good outcome will take the bit terness invav. I seem to bear the ild words: "It ihllst needs be that oBeuses come, but woe to thut man by whom the oflense coiuelh." There seems to he a reason wii.v dislike develops into hate; and only hate, is lasting. But there is even in a natural liian 2otiicthing against this. Il is not a.ileas'iut thing to tliiuk every man's Hand is against you. Il is not altogether pleasant not to be on speaking feiTis w ith n fellow-creature. Men in quiet mo ments t'le of enmity wish tor rec onciliation. The slightest motion toward if isolten met most gladly. 1 have spoken too poorly of the forgiveness wo see u earth of man to man. There is one forgive ness that is like that of God's for giveness of father, and mother of the offenses' of children. Who re members the oflense of a child ! 1 do not historically remember what thn child did, not tho day of (he mouth nor even the year 1 have forgot ten what he did. That makes me able to believe that God can blot out the i-iiio of his children and remember I hem no more for ever. "Shv. iliiddv. what is this tariff iiiiyhow, that everybody is payiu taxes on T How does it happen th nt everybody, even the niggers on our place, have got some tariff ami can afford to keep it, and can make money out ol it so as to pay taxes oh ft f "Well, tariff, my sou, is a penally on onr necessities instead of a tax' on our wealth. Tho tariff is a tax we pay on the wealth ot other men. Tho tariff Axes things so that vi heii we want to buy anything we need, we must boy trout somebody else the plive- lego ol buying it.

A Druiniiier Relates His Expe rience in Grand Rapids, Mich. Grand Rapids Times. One thing I like about these "Knights of the Road," is that they aie great fellows lor secret societies. Most ot the drummers belong to everything t'nit is going, from the "Grand Kuighis of the Diamond Garter" down to the "Sous ot In temperance." I am quite a hand for all such m stei ions things my self, so I get solid with all the boys. My old Irieiid Crookstou called on rue tho other day to see it I needed any drugs and have a visit.

Ho said, "that's me." I gave bun the grand hailing sign ol the Odd Follows, whi -,h he tum bled to. Then came the great "uatl in tlio sooth grip of a Fythonic." He tumbled. Then Crook gave him the G.
