THE FOURTEENTH GUFESTI --- in th R. BANKS -My 8i dance, I believe, q, Miss Wadding- di ton. Do you care e to- Miss Katie Wad- Ia dington, her pretty roguish face t flushed With indignation-I'm aston- i ished that you venture to speak to me -you know I couldn't refuse, with that horrid Lady Hloughton introducing as you, and looking over my shoulder at ac my card. He (pulling his waistcoat a little, because his shirt front pointed too much)-ls that why you jaited for me in the conservatory? No, ilease don't go-let's sit it out. e, Miss Katie sits down again and be- I gins pulling a rose to pieces. "You've it treated me shamefully, haven't you?" z "Not a bit." "Indeed you have; and don't fidget a cwith your necktie." b "Now, which of your pretty white teeth have you against me?" ''Can't you speak in plain English, , instead of using your French phrases? , Come, now, didn't we meet at Devon- r shire park? Oh, it's just like you to h hint that we weren't prolkrly intro- t duced; but we were afterward." p "Never mind the fashion of the in troduction," said he, hiding a smile be hind his glove. "You know such introductions are e almost the fashion at the seaside." "You mean such almost introduc tions are quite the fashion?" he ob- 14 served; "but suppose we did, and sup- n pose we took walks together, and a dances together, and went fishing to gether, and I put on the-, and sup- a pose I was in earnest?" "Never mind what you suppose," she t said, sharply. "You know quite well t, that at the seaside-" n "By the sea a maiden's fancy lightly t turns to thoughts of-flirtation." "I shall leave you at once if you re ii so flippant and rude," said Miss Katie, r and she got up and then sat on another a seat with the light at the back-a very a pretty white bac: -not the seat's. "Didn't you' pretend you were a bar rister?" "No, certainly not." "How can you tell such a-" a "It isn't a-. I didn't pretend I am a barrister." ' "Well, even if you are, you needn't quibble, and, besides, there are lots of barristers who don't earn as much-" "As much as a shoeblack. There's your Cousin Jack-but he plays bil liards splendidly-you should see him at Carr's during term t:me." L "Bother Jack! And besides he is a good sort, and I like him much better than you! Ohl how could you deceive me so? Why, that horrid Glendower girl who drove me home in her broug ham-I know it's only hired-the mo ment we got in said: 'Really, dear, that man you so afflched yourself with at Eastbourne is quite decent for one of Whiteley's young men! Ugh! a hired guest.' " "But I assure you, I-" "Now, isn't it true you came to Mrs. Hooper's as a hired guest? Weren't you sent for because at the last mo ment ,there was a man short, and she was afraid of thirteen at dinner? There, I knew you couldn't deny it. Why anyone should ask so many peo- t ple to dinner goodness knows-it's bar- t barons-it's not a dinner; it's a meal. a And you called yourself lloward-is , that the name you're called? And got I a guinea and instructions in the hall not to talk politics, theology, or school boards, or new woman." "A guinea wasn't the price," said Mr. Banks, gloomily, biting one of his gloves, "and I wasn't paid; it was sent direct to Whiteley, and we aren't trusted with the money, and I'm really a barrister with a good practice, and you're cruel. Even if it were all true, you need not hit so hard." Miss Katie sat silent for a moment and listened to a few bars of "Le Reve de Mon Coeur" waltz, that sounded de "I DOn'T WART SOI-Y." lighttl in the distance- She remem bered how often she had danoed to it with him at Eastbourne, and how well their steps were matched. She looked at the young man, and he really was so handsome and "such good form" that in her next remark she eused a gentler voie. "You know I shouldn't have mined so much if it had been abroad, bet everyone will make fn of me." Thn she spokeearneatly: "BSre ly you sealdu't have been such a-seuh a-ad yea ean't be tellit fal hoods." "I asre you," be maid, eagerly, "it's not quite as you think.

Y Really he looked very handsome, and quite a gentleman. Miss Katie's eyes dwelt kindly on his fine hair and well- £n cut features. "There's a mystery," he started at last. She dropped her fan, and as both a stooped to pick it up their hands came ' in contact.

A wa a? smile came into his face-a rather nol n- rougish smile.

She gave m3 er a half-hearted little laugh and an- lai ry swered: "It's too absurd, really-we she women may be inquisitive - though thi r- not so much as you men." ca` He looked very grave.

Ifuales and Encouragement-The am Homesick Aiiee-Leeaoae an f'rom DatisL ai the Te Rev. T. DeWitt Talmage selects as the theme for this week's sermon "The kn Open Window," basing it on the text: Jei His windows being open in his chamber to- pl ward Jerusalem."-Daniel vi.. ihi 'The scoundrelly princes of Persia, by urged on by political jealousy against eab Daniel, have sneucceeded in getting a So law passed that whoever prays to God shall be put under the paws and teeth thl of the lions, who are lashing them- So selves in rage and hunger up and Al' down the stone cage, or putting their rip lower jaws on the ground, bellowing So till the earth trembles. But the leo- ni nine threat did not hinder the devotions ho of Daniel, the Cour-de-Lion of the th1 ages. His enemies might as well have WC a law that the sun should not draw water, or that the south wind should the not sweep across a garden of magno- lih lias or that God should be abolished. They could not scare him with the reed-hot furnaces, and they cannot now go scare him with the lions. As soon as Daniel hears of this enactment he leaves his office of secretary of state, of with its upholstery of crimson and tho gold, and comes down the white mar ble steps and goes to his own house. an He opens his window and puts the Na shutters back and pulls the curtain Fr aside so that he can look toward the sacred city of Jerusalem, and then mi prays, I suppose the people in the street m' gathered under and before his win- ex dow, and said: "Just see that man tO' defying the law; he ought to be ar- tir rested." And the constabulary of the wi city rush to the police headquarters K! and report that Daniel is on his knees me at the wide-open window. "You are an my prisoner," says the officer of the gr law, dropping a heavy hand on the shoulder of the kneeling Daniel. As do the constables open the door of the cavern to thrust in their prisoner, er they see the glaring eyes of the mon- km sters. But Daniel becomes the first ph' lion-tamer, and they lick his hand and sh fawn at his feet, and that night he me sleeps with the shaggy mane of a wild k5 beast for his pillow, while the king st' that night, sleepless in the palace, has ciu on him the paw and teeth of a lion th he can not tame-the lion of a re- wi morseful conscience. li What a picture it would be for some a artist: Darius, in the early dusk of Ph morning, not waiting for footmen or chariot, hastening to the den, all de flushed and nervous and in dishabille, and looking through the crevices of TI the cage to see what had become of his prime minister! "What, no sound!" tid he says. ' "Daniel is surely devoured, dr and the lions are sleeping after their lo horrid meal, the bones of.the poor man sh scattered across the floor of the cav ern." With trembling voice Darius Je calls out: Daniel!" No answer, for ye the prophet is yet in profound slum- ea ber. But a lion, more easily awak- liI ened, advances, and, with hot breath tO blown through the crevice, seems angrily to demand the cause of this in- th terruption, and then another wild lie beast lifts his mane from under th i Daniel's head, and the prophet waking yC I up comes forth to report himself all Di I unhurt and well. But our text stands us at Daniel's window, open toward Jerusalem. Why a in that direction open? Jerusalem was of t his native land, and all the pomp of to his Babylonish successes could not ol 1- make him forget it. He came there ol from Jerusalem at eighteen years of as e age, and he never visited it, though he lived to be eighty-five years. Yet, la a when he wanted to arouse the deepest a r emotions and grandest aspirations of hi i- his heart, lie had his window open to ward his native Jerusalem. There are , many of you to-day who understand that without any exposition. This is y getting to be a nation of foreigners They have come into all occupations d a and professions. They sit in all d churches It may be twenty years tl d ago since you got naturalization pa- tl pers, and you may be thoroughly 1 y Americanized, but you can't forget p c the land of your birth, and your warm est sympathies go out toward it. Your 1 t windows are open toward Jerusalem. d Your father and mother are bur s, led there. It may have been i, i- a very humble home in which you fi d were born, but your memory often ,, - plays around it, and ybn hope some n day to go and see it-the hill, the d d tree, the brook, the house, the place so t gacred, the door from which you i u started of with parental blessing to is make your own way in the world; and o w God only knows how sometimes you p I have longed t6 see the familiar faces of 1 -your childhood, and how in awful d -' crisesof life you would like to have t s caught a glimpse of the old, wrinkled d face that bent over you as you lay on , t the gentle lap twenty or forty or fifty t e years ago. You may have on this side w of the seta risen in fortune, and, like Daniel, have become great, and may a have come into prosperities which you e! never could have reached if you had 't stayed there, and you may have many i g windows to your house-beay-windowso t and skylight windows, and windows i- of coservatory, and windows on all if si des--bt you have at least one wi n -t dow open toward Jerusalem. i When the foreign steamer comes to W- the whrt you see the long line of 1 b 'sauiors, with sheuldered mail bags dI eamng down, the plks, carrying a. at I many letters as you might sappose to I - be enough for a year~' correspondence, 1 l.,ad this repeate again sad again id 4ing the wenk.

Good-by." wl Yes, yes; in all these cities, and he amid the flowering western prairies, ha and on the slopes of the Pacific, and an amid the Sierras, and on the banks of sic the lagoon, and on the ranches of th Texas there is an uncounted multitude hid who, this hour tand and sit and ve kneel with their ndows open toward le Jerusalem. Soma of these people so played on the heather of the Scottish th hills. Some of them were driven out th by Irish famine. Some of them, in we early life, drilled in the German army. th Some of them were accustomed at Lyons or Marseilles or Paris to see on w the street Victor Hugo and Gambetta. aS Some chased the chamois among thE H Alpine precipices. Some plucked the th ripe clusters from Italian vineyard. ar Some lifted their faces under the mid- us night sun of Norway. It is no dis- w honor to our land that they remember in the place of their nativity. Miscreants Cc would they be if, while they have de some of their windows open to take in the free air of America and the sun- w light of an atmosphere which no king- en ly despot has ever breathed, they for- ns got sometimes to open the window to- go ward Jerusalem. ju The dominion of this world over is multitudes is illustrated by the names hi of coins of many countries. They have th their pieces of money which they call es sovereigns and half-sovereigns, crowns w and half-crowns. Napoleons and half- ax Napoleons. Fredericks and double- S Fredericks, and ducats, and Isabelll- of nos, all of which names mean not so ue much usefulness as dominion. The he most of our windows open toward the exchange, toward the salon of fashion, o' toward the god of this world. In olden th times the length of the English yard at was fixed by the length of the arm of of King Henry I., and we are apt to measure things by a variable standard w and by the human arm that in the in great crisis of life can give us no help. w We need, like Daniel, to open our win- i< dows toward God and religion. ne But, mark you, that good lion tam- hi er is not standing at the window, but to kneeling, while he looks out. Most h photographs are taken of those in ti standing or sitting posture. I now re- tl member but one picture of a man ti kneeling, and that was David Living- et stone, who, in the cause of God and i civilization, sacrificed himself; and in h the heart of Africa his servant, Msaj- N wars, found him in the tent by the light of a candle, stuck on the top of n a box, his head in his hands upon the 1u pillow, and dead on his knees. But d here is a great lioh tamer, living un- a der the dash of the light, and his hair n disheveled of the breeze, praying. ti The fact is, that a man can see fur ther on his knees than standing on tiptoe. Jerusalem was about five hun dred and fifty statute miles from Baby- li lon, and the vast Arabian desert shifted its sands between them. Yet N through that open window Daniel saw n Jerusalem, saw all between it, saw be- n yond, saw time, saw eternity, saw earth and saw Heaven. Would you F like to see the way through your sins n to pardon, through your troubles to comfort, through temptation to rescue, through dire sickness to immortal health, through night to day, through a things terrestrial to things celestial, c you will not see them till you take o Daniel's posture. No cap of bone to the joints of the fingers, no cap of bone to the joints of the elbow, but cap of bone to the knees, made so be cause the God of the body was the God I of the soul, and especial provision for those who want to pray, and physi- o ological structure joins with spiritual necessity in bidding us pray, and pray, and pray. In olden time the earl of Westmore land said he had no need to pray, be cause he had enough pious tenants on i his estate to pray for him; but all the prayers of the church universal amount to nothing unless, like Daniel, we pray for ourselves. Oh, men and women, Sbounded on one side by Shadrach's red-hot furnace, and the other side by devouring lions, learn the secret of courage and deliverance by looklag at Sthat Babylonish window open toward the southwest! "Oh," you say, "that is Sthe direction of the Arabian Desert!" SYes; but on the other side of the des ert is G(od, is Christ, is Jerusalem, is r Heaven. The Brussels lace is superior to all other lace, so beautiful, so multi " form, so expensive-four hundred francs a pound. All the world n seeks it. Do you know how It is Cmade? The spinning is done in a Sdark room, the only light admitted 0through a small aperture, and that Slight falling directly on the pattern. ' And the finest specimens of Christian d character I have ever seen or ever ex u pect to see are those to be found in lives all of whose windows have been 1 darkened by bereavement and misfor e tone save one, but under that one win d dow of prayer the interlacing of divine 5 workmanship went on until it was fit . to deck a throne, a celestial embrol e dery which angels admired and God e approved. y But t is another Jerusalem toward n which we now need to open our win d dows. The exiled evangelist of y Ephesus saw it one day as the surf of s the Iclarian sea foamed and splashed a over the bowlders at his feet, and his I vssiao reminded me of a wedding day, a* when the bride by sister and maid was having ltarlands twisted for her hair l and jewels strung for her neck just f before she puts her bethrothed hand i, into the hand of her aianced. "I, s John, saw the Holy city, New Jerusa to lem, coming down from God out of , Heavyen prepared as a bride adorned in for her husband." Toward that bridal a Jerusalem are our windows openedl? l We would do wel tothink more of ro Heaves. It is not a mere anPex of r earth.' It is not a desolate eatpost r- As Jeraralm was the espital of Judes, a ad BaIbylon the easpital the laby s. lonha monarehy, and Lendon is the Sea~iti of Greet Uritata, spnW ash - te Is the capital .t our oewn repuli. the u rai~nes ' ay)re hi and the royal family of the redeemed have their palaces there, end there is a congress of many nations and the parliament of all the world. Yea as an Daniel had kindred in Jerusalem of Ti whom he often thought, though he left home when a" very young man, per haps father and mother and brothers and sisters still living, and was home sick to see them, and they belonged to the high circles of royalty, Daniel himself having royal blood in .hs th veins; so we have in the new Jerusa lem a great many kindred, and we are sometimes homesick to see them, asd on they are all princes and princesses, in them the blood imperial, and we do fr well to keep our windows open .toward ut their eternal residence. th It is a joy for us to believe that th while we are interested in them they are interested in us. Much thought of Heaven makes one heavenly. The airs that blow through that open window are charged with life and sweep up to us aromas from gardens that never wither, under skies that never cloud, vii in a spring tide that never terminates. it Compared with it all other heavens are dead failures. to Ilomer's Heaven was an elysium , which he describes as a plain at the end of the earth or beneath, with no b snow nor rainfall, and the sun never a goes down, and lRhadamanthns, the a 1 justest of men, rules. Hesiod's heaven E is what he calls the Islands of the Cc blessed, in the midst of the ocean, m three times a year blooming with most to exquisite flowers, and the air is tinted pe with purple, while games and music us and horse races occupy the time. The Fp Scandinavian's heaven was the hall of Walhalla, where the god Odin gave ,, unending wine suppers to earthly th heroes and heroines. The Mohamme- s an's heaven passes its disciples in fo over the bridge Al-Sirat, which is finer to than a hair and sharper than a sw*rd, cc and then they are let loose into a riot b of everlasting sensuality. th The American aborigines look for- er ward to a heaven of illimitable hunt- sh ing ground, partridge and deer and sp wild duck more than plentiful, and the al hounds never off scent and the guns or never missing fire. But the geographer - has followed the earth round and found no Homer's elysium. Voyagers to have traversed the deep in all direc- $ tions and found no Hesiod's islands of s the blessed. The Mohammedan'seeles- ri tial debauchery and the Indian's ea eternal hunting ground for vast i multitudes have no charm. But tc here rolls in the- Bible Heaven. m No more sea-that is, no wide tl separation. No more night-that is, sa no insomnia. No more tears-that isno tl heartbreak. No more pain-that 1s, u dismissal of lancet and bitter draught a; and miasma, and banishment of neu- t, ralgias, and catalepsies, and consamp tions. All colors in the wall except v gloomy black: all the music in the mea ii jor key, because celebrative and jubi- ti lant. Riter crystalline, gate crystal- q line, and skies crystalline, because s everything is clear and without doubt. t White robes, and that means smiless- r ness. Vials full of odors, and that t means pure regalement of the senses. a Rainbow, and that means the storm t is over. Marriage supper, and that g means gladdest festivity. Twelve d manner of fruits, and that means lns- c cious and unending variety. Harp, a trumpet, grand march, anthem, r amen, and hallelujah, in the same or chestra. Choral meeting solo, and overture meeting antiphon, and strophe joining dithyramb, as they roll into the ocean of doxologies. And you and I may have all that, and have I it forever through Christ, if we will '1 let Him with the blood of 6ne wound- a ed hand rub out our sin, and with the s other wounded hand swing open the t shining portals. f Day and night keep your window t open toward that Jerusalem. ing about it. Pray about it. Think about c it. Talk about it. Dream about it t Do not be inconsolable about your t friends who have gone into it. Do not worry if something in your heart indi cates that you are not far off from its ? ecstasies. Do not think that when a Christian dies he stops, for he goes on. SAn ingenious man has taken the Sheavenly furlongs as mentioned in SRevelation, and has calculated that 5 *ere will be in Heaven one hundred rooms sixteen feet square for each as cending soul, though this world should Slose a hundred million souls yearly. but all the rooms of Heaven will be I ours, for they are family rooms; and - as no room in your house is too I good for your children, so all the I rooms of all the palaces of the s heavenly Jerusalem will be free to a God's children, and even the throne I roos will not be denied, and you may t run up the steps of the throne, and put your hand on the side of the R throne, and sit down by the King aso -cording to the promise: "To him that a overeometh will I grant to sit with a me in my throne." inBut you cannot go in except as oau *querors. Many years ago the Turks e and Christians were in battle, and the t Christians were defeated, and with L their commander Stephen fled toward d a fortress where the mother of this commander was staying. When shesaw d herson and his army in dilgresdal le -' treat she had thie gitee of the fortress rolled shut, and then from the top of the battlement cried out to her snt "You can not enter here enept as on Squerori" Then Stepshen ralled h forces and resamed the battle asd Sgained the day, twenty thoaend r driving back two hnadred th~e-.

If the majority w t of women were to be truthful about and the matter men would find, I r think, that they have only a cer t tain educated tolerance for it, based upon the knowledge that the up a men of their hearts and homes like to smoke, and so they put up up with it as well as they can. In short, women tolerate tobacco smoke, for the most part, beeunse they feel t they have to. As a matter of fact the -o Sfumes of any cigar, no matter bow ao . good the brand, can be nothing else than instinctly distasteful to the sens tire organism of any woman. Women have a charming way of hiding their Sfeelings in this matter, but the feeling is there just the same. Al things be ing equal, that is, if the average wife knew her husband would be just as U Shappy and eontented without smoking a as witjh it,I fancy she would prefer him without the smoking. This being so, and it only admits of t a fancied denial, it becomes men td Sregulate their smoking in the home. A man's idea of a home is a phse where one room is the same as sOth er, so far as his comfort is conceraned.
