IO.11ER, - LOUISIANA January 17, 1890. Sam Jones in New Orleans. The farmer as he sows his seed must he impressed with their like ness to the seeds of love sown by thoe Lord. The dry goods merchant measuring off Ihs cloth with hir vardstick must see that each is an :.pproach toward the end and to ward eternity. The grocer weigh ing his goods in his scale must think of the handwriting on the wall: Mene, mene, tekel, uphiarsin. The lawyer must ponder over the question whether he has an advo ,.ate in Heaven. The school tea cher instructing the little chbi .Iren must think of his own possi ,iliteis for instruction by Christ, an truths of which Socrates never dreamed and Plato never thought. Mr Jones told of the importance ,.f the Bible to mankind, and then aid a few kind words about preachers, whom he had pitched into a little at previous sermons. lie had heard all kinds of prea cehers-white, black and red igno rant and learned-and he never vet heard one preach a sermon which did not have truth enough in it to convert 10,000 people. Peo pie have no excuse now that they have not heard the gospel. There reapreacers all over the world. If they could all be placed in a line round the earth they would he within the sound or each other's voices, and one mighty appeal would rise from the earth. He commented upon the slow ness of the people here. It was atmospheric, he had been told, hlit he dido't believe it. "Let us have more lif" 'hobe said. Even the mlnist trihreact as if they had the rest of their lives to get to Heaven an. If there is any thing the devil likes it is a preach er who takes as much time to pull nn his boots as it lakes the devil to run a mile in. Mr. Jones touched upon the liquor tra1c. Most people, he aalsl, stand around and abuse the barkeeper while at the samoe time they are drinking, and that Is not right. "1 like to see a square thing," contianed Mr. Jones. •lHere you've got the manufactur er of it, here alongside of him the man who sells it, here the man who drinks it,.and here. the man who wants to license it. They are all togther aad if you can eperate them a4mt say which ones whall go to heaves and which to ioell yon are more a philosopher titan I am."

The ex~'overnor and the Young o'egresnman Can't Make' Terms. The following Washirgton spee ial of January the 8th to the Pic ayune t-ontains some interesting items for tire (r.ktiiin's re:aders, We thought William Pitt was piroutting around Lonisianu for something. "Ex-Governor Walmoth and 3Mr. Coleman were in conference to-day at the capitol for some time, Judge Brice being of the party. As Governor Warmoth s:id afterwards, IMr. Coleman was reciting to him a long string of grievances, and reitterated his in tention to fight his conlirmatien to the extent of his ability. The governor says he will be confirm ed in spite of Mr. Coleman, al though his name has net been sent in yet, nor has that of Patty for naval offlicer. Governor Warmoth makes no bones of stating that Mr. Coleman recommended to him two persons for appointment in the customs service who had been in the pen itentiary-that is Johnson, the ship burner, and another man. It is said here that very liberal terms were offered iMr. Coleman in the way of patronage when War moth was first appointed-that is, one-third of the customs patron age and one-half of the mint-but that he declined. Governor Kellog has again ap peared upon the scene and pro tests that he is not in politics, but all the same it is well understood that he is doing everything he can to prevent Wa lmoth's con-. firmation, and as his influence with the Republican senators is considerable he may succeed in doing his rival some dama~e. It is believed here that Govern or Kellogg is putting himself in shape to run for congress in the Third district next term, or to name the ulan, and that he wants Mr. Herwig to be collector. It is also suspected that Governor Warmoth would be a congression al candidate if he gets into the collector's berth. There are all sorts of congres sional rumors. In fact, it is stated that Senator Eustis may conclude to come out as the Democratic candidate in the Second Louis lana distrct next election, but this has not been verified. Judge Brice is supposed to have come to Washington on a peace ful mission, to adjust the diflicul ties between the contending chierf tauins. A 8aound Legal Opinion. E. Brainbridge, Munday, Esq., County Atty., Clay County, Tex as, says: '"ave used Electric Bitters with most happy results. My brother was also very low with malarial fever and Jaundice, but was cured by timely use of this medicine. Am satisfied Electric Bitters saved his life." Mr. D. I. Wilcoxson, of Horsae Cave, Ky., adds a like testimony, saying: He positively believes hie would have died had it not been for Electric Bitters. This great remedy will ward off, as well as core all Malarial Dis eases, and for all kidney, liver and stomach disorders stands un equaled. Price 50e and $1.00.

Thank God, it abides among us! It still maintains its hold upon the hu man heart, and mind. Those who read it still find it the one book that is indispensable among all the literary treasures of the ages. Those who know it best love It most. Those who read it oftenest and longest and most carefully are the most profoundly interest ed in it, and most eager to read and ponder it more. Fools now, as ever, despise the word. Learn ed ignoramuses revile it, and boast of their superior wisdom. Multitudes pass by. "wagging their heats," as did the mocking crows when Jesus hung on Calva ry; but as a sharp Irishi bishop recently said, "Many of the heads shaken at the old Bible are emp ty." The fill heads and ruver. oant hearts bhow low belbre it in profoundest loyalty to truth. The Evangelical. Contagious Blood Diseases.
