There are plenty of good shows, but, un fortunately, tboro aro hundreds which aro utterly devoid with merit. Now, any ono can tell at a glance If they seo a magnifi cent now store with massive plate glass windows, that It necessarily calls for a great outlay of money to erect It, and tho stock in such a store is generally of the finost. Tho same lino of reasoning to theatrical enterprises; for Instance: when you seo a show billed In tho lavish and expensive manner that characterizes "She Couldn't Marry Throe" company you can rest assurod that thero is monoy and push back of it. The boautiful, artistic pictorial lithograi hlo work, is the finest and the costliest on tho road. No lithographing firm would attempt that kind of work without having ten thousand dollars down to icsuro thi m from loss. This is only ono of the many items of a great show, and the same good taslo which provides this beauti ful printing will neglect no other depart ment of tho show.

WHAT THE SCRIBES SEE AND HEAR ToxtB of tho Sermons in tho Moth- odist and Presbyterian Pulpits Yostorday by Rovb. Powick and MoNally. Sunday morning after rccolving seven aew members on probation at tho Metho dist Episcopalichurch tho pastor dolivored a sermon on tho obligation of gratiludo to God for nil his benefits. Tho text was from Psalm 103-1-5; "Bb ss tho Lord O my soul and forget not oil his benefits," otc. Two hundrod and sixty years havo passod sinco Govornor Bradford appointed tho first Thankfgiving di.y. Whllo wo do woll to bo always thankful it is very propor to sit down upon particular occasions to re count God's mercies and specially to com momorato them. No moro appropriate season could bo chosen than when mothor earth, having completed her year's work and crowned tho land with plonty, rests from her labors for a brief Ecason of re cuperation bolero renowing her toil. But tho Psalmist was most mindful of his spirit ual benefits; and.recognizing tho proncness of man to forget these, ho calls upon all that is within him every faculty of mind and heart to bless His holy name, and, then lost ho might forget, ho repeats tho call a second litno. Bless Him who for- glveth all thine iniquitios. "All we like sheep havo gono astray." In reviowing tho year wo spo things in our actions aud failures of which wo ato ashamed and ftr which wo aro sorry. Though wo may not bo guilty of flagrant violations of tho laws of God and man so far as outward conduct goes has tboro not been a want of equity of fairness, candor, impartiality in our treatment of man and particularly in our treatment of God ? This is the meaning of iniquity and God will forgive it presumpt' ous sins an.d secret faults if wo seek His forgivonnoss. Bless Him who healeth all all thy diseasos. Tho scul nopds healing by tho Physician as woll as pardoning by tho Judgo. Physical healing had a largo place in the Psalmist's thought, but when God healed tho body it was only an object lesson of nis power to heal tho soul which is a groator work. Bloes Him who re- deemoth thy lifo from destruction who who saves thy soul from hell as a final and fitting rosult of this doublo work of for giving and healing and who wears a crown out of his own loving kindness and tender morcios with which to adorn thy life. Bless Him who satisfloth thy soul with good not with dainties, but nccossitios. Wo are all much liko littlo children in ono thing: Wo set our heart on this and that and when wo get It wo find it does not bring the jiy we expected. Then wo try something olso with tho same result. Wo climb from ono round to another and whoa we get to tho lop wn aro ready to cry : "O that I hid wings liko a dovo for then would I fly away and be at rest." But whon wo nostlo down at tho cross our soul is satisfied. Bless Uim who ronoweth thy youth liko tho eagle't who maintains the freshness and vigor of thy spiritual youth; and makos theo to be fat and flourishing and to bring forth lruit oven unto old ego. Bloss tho Lord.O my soul, and forgot not all his ben efits. Tho ovoning sermon was on Christ weeping over Jerusalem from which a solemn lesson was drawn concornlng "Wastod Opportunities." A very impros- 8ive revival service followed In which one soul was convortod. Rev. J. B. McCul- lough, D. D., editor of tho Philadelphia ilelhodist, was announcod to preach noxt Sunday morning. Rev. MoNally's Sermon. Tho text of tho sermon by ltev. Mc- Nally in tho Presbyterian church, in the intorest of foreign misions, Sunday, wa taken from Malachl 8;8 Robbery amongst men has always neon considered an offence, and was formerly i capital offence, pun ished by death. Tho very term has oaly meaning when used in connection wlth th mo.t profligate and abandoned portion of society. How insultod any decant man would feol to be denounced a robber I But the text seems to charge men ' with the highest species of robbery robbery of God. To rob the poorest man Xtftlony, to usurp the prerogatives or riches of a monarch is trcaton, but to rob God is saoritege, I fear that not only the Jews wero guilty of this, but also that many Christians aro not clear in the matter. "Will a man rob God?" What is it to rob film? Itis to deprlvo Him of Hit just rights, to withhold from htm that which is His, that which He efatuis and asterta to bo Ills. Ho has a right to our obcdlenco, homage, roveience and love. He has a claim upon all our time, our means and our talonts. Wo rob God when wo appropriate to ourselves that which is manifestly His. Now tho question is, bow mi.ch of my timo and how much of my means bolongs to God, Tho Bible dis tinctly states that ono-seventh of my timo und one-tenth of my iucomo belongs to tho Lord. W r.ny appropriate both to our selves m to our own use, but we thereby lo) in both temporal and spiritual bless ings. All Christians will conoedo this to bo true as regard time, but all are not so willing to concede it when applioi to Incomo. Wo cannot dodge the quostion of tithes by saying it was a Mosaic institution and therefore only applicable to tho Jews, for it was instituted and observed hundreds of years beforo Moses was born. Abraham paid tithes, and Jacob promised to givo God ono-tenth of his income. Wo havo no acoount of the law having ovor boon abrogated; certainly wo beiiove that tho law of tho Sabbath is as binding as over, then why not that of tho titho oue-tonth of our incomo? Our Saviour sanctioned the payment of tithes when He was upon oartti. Ho did nut command it, but re cognized it as a binding law already in force. Tho samo thing Is truo of tho Sb- balb, or ono-soventh of cur timo. Wo must not givo according to our feelings or our conscience, those aro not always safo guides ; but tho Word of God is safo, and wo had better stick to that. Do you say you "can't afford to do It?" You can't afford not to do it. Thousands are doing it to-day, and their universal testimony is that lliey never prospored so well beforo in thoir lives. God knows what is best fr us, not only In spiritual but also in temporal things, Tho quostion is often asked, "Doos mis sionary work in fjreign lands pay?" Itis nono of our business whether it does or not, God's command is, "Go (or send) yo into nil the world and preach tho gospel to evory craaturo." That's our part in tho business, tho prosperity of missions is tho Lord's part. The monoy spent and tho thousands of lives sacrificed, however, havo not been in vain; grand, cheering ro ports como to us from all lands, and God is giving His servants victory, until tho wholo world is nearly belted with tho glorious Gospel of Josus Christ. Lot mo givo a fs?, facts and figures. Tho Biblo has boon trans lated into about 300 languages and dialects and thoso compriso about nlno-tcnlhts ot the wholo human race. An army of 0.000 missionaries and 30,000 nativo preachers aro spreading tho gospel in heathen lands. Tho sum of about $11,000,000 was raisod for this work during the past year, all ovor tho world, or an avorage of thirty-six cents por membor for tho wholo christian church. That's heavy giving I It is said that "graves are ncodod in tho mission fields." They are billowed with them.
