Published Every Friday. BO LI V An. TENNESSEE IN A TIGER'S DEN. Exciting: Adventure of n Party of Hunters la a Cbinese AVildernenH. A hugo tip;er was killed near Amoy in March last, the hunt being marked by a number of exciting features. Tho hunting party consisted of Messrs. Cullinson, De3 Voeux, Harding and Leyburn, and eight native hunters, tho latter annod joiily with spears and torches. They were out several days, beating many ravines unsuccessfully and finding only tracks and traces of timers. Then they reached a placo where Leyburn had shot a tiger a year before, wounding him severely but failing to secure him. Tho following account by one of tho party refers to tho e.-ime den in tho rocks to which the wounded beast retreated: ' '"It cleared up about breakfast timo and wo proceeded leisurely to tho cars about eleven o'clock. Collinson took 'Allen's rock,' Pea Voeux "Hard ing's rock,' and Leyburn and I placed ourselves near the 'bridge entrance.' Tho native hunters went in below the bridgo. From the marks they mado out that a tiger had been lying down below tho bridge, but had shifted higher up. "After they had been in half an hour some of them camo out much excited nnd said they had 'cornered' a big ti'or. A few remained in tho cave holding torches in tho beast's face while tho rest carried in bundles of bru.-diwood and gradually built him in. This 'building in' took a long time and consUted inclosing up with brushwood all tho holes by which tho tiger could t'ha ro. "Then wo were invited to waltz in and kill tho beast. I must say that I did not feel a bit inclined for this part of tho programme, but old Quartermain (Leyburn) was right on it and after much discussion in wo went. Wo went down into tho cavo from tho bridge entrance by a ladder about twelve feet long and wo scrambled on, mostly on hands and knees, for about thirty yards, lighted by torches. It was very wet and muddy and tho at mosphere was stuffy and ill-smelling. "At last wo got to whero tho tiger Mas built in, and the first thing we Faw was tho skull and bones of tho old tiger Leyburn had killed at tho bridge entrance in January, In front of us were two piles of brushwood clos ing two holes, behind which was the live tiger. "Leyburn scrambled and was pushed up a bit of slippery, sloping rock, and then one of tho hunters removed a fagot and Leyburn found a big tiger with his head about five feet from him looking dazed at tho glaro of tho .torches. Ho aimed as well as he could by the uncertain light between his eyes and fired, knocking tho beast down. "Tho hunter instantly replaced the fagot and wo heard tho tiger roaring and scuttling about behind the brush wood. In a minute or so all was quiet and wo all waited and listened and could hear tho bruto breathing heav ily. "We. had to crouch behind the nrushwood nearly an hour before the hunters ventured to peep in over it. Then they lognii a most cautious in vestigation, removing a little brush wood, looking in then quickly replac ing the brushwood. At lonrrth they seemed satisfied that the tiger was not killed, but had gone on. They took down part of tho brushwood and rushed in with torches and spears, wo follow ing as well as we could. "After moving about ten yards we came up to two more holes or passages, nnd I lie men shouted that th-y could see the tiger. I was hoisted up on a nearly perpendicular rock and saw a yellow head about fivo feet below my l ight hand. I fired into the center of i!. and as soon as tho snioko cleared tlri beast appeared in another hole about live feet above my right hand, v. that I could nearly touch him with Hie barrels of my guns. Ho was rlose to a hole a little to my right, where Leyburn and Qullp (two of the hunters) were standing. "I fired into his nock this timo nnd tlropped him, and ho fell with his car close to mo, and as lie still moved I fn-eil into him right behind tho car, finishing him off. "Leyburn's shot had gono in above Iho nose, knocking his head about nw fully, and my first shot had entered about three inches below tho eye. and yet with theso two awful wouuds in tho head from bullets he had managed to move about. "'11 o atmosphere In tho cave was by this time simply suffocating, nnd we were glad enough to get out, after being in there an hour and a half. All Iho men camo out and had food before dragging tho beast out. He was a very heavy-built tiger, measuring eight feet l-Mi and a half inches as he lay, his slvin two days after measuring eleven feet three inches. We had a triumphal procession back to tho boat, but man aged to keep the natives off, and then began the grewsoaie operation of skin ning." Shanghai (China) Cor. N. Y. lieiaid.

The Brooklyn Preacher Tells the Iloosiers "How to Conquer." A Sermon on the Force of EtI STablts auvl the Difficulties la the - ith H'ay of Reform ThroujjU Christ AVe Conquer. Hey. T. DeWitt Talmage preached the following sermon at Lake Maxinkuckee, Ind., on the subject of "How to Conquer." His text was: When shall isawke? I will, seek it yet again. Proverbs xxtii., 3o. AVith an insight into human nature such as no other mauever reached. Solo mon, in iuy text, sketches the mental op erations of one who, having stepped aside from tho path of rectitude, desires to return. With a wish for something better he said: "Whoa shall I awake? When shall I come out of this horrid nightmare of iuiquity?" But, seized upon by uneradicated habit, ami forced down hill by his passions, h cries out: "I will seek it yet again. I will try it once more." Our libraries are adorned with an ele gant literature addressed to young men pointing out to them ail the dangers and perils of life, complete maps of the voy o.go, showing all the rocks, the quick sands, trie shoals. But suppose a man. lias already made shipwreck; suppose he Is already oft the track; suppose he has already gone astray. How is he to get back? That is a field comparatively un touched. I propose to address myself to such. There aie those in this audience who, with every passion of their ago nized soul, are ready to hear such a dis cussion. They compare themselves with what they were tea years ago, and cry out from the bondage in which they are incarcerated. Now, if there be any here, come with an "earnest purpose, yet feel ing they are beyond the pale of Christian sympathy, and that the sermon can hard ly be expected to address them, then, at this moment, I give them my right . hand, and call them brother. Look up. There Is glorious and triumphant hope for you yet. I sound the trumpet of Gospel de liverance. The Church is ready to spread a banquet at your return, and the hie rarchs of Heaven to full into line of ban nered procession at the news of your emancipation. So far as God may help me, I propose to show what are the ob stacles of your return, and then how you are to surmount those obstacles. The first difficulty in the way of your return is the force of moral gravitation. Just as there is a natural lew which brings down to the e irth any thing you throw into the air, so there is a corre sponding moral gravitation. In other words. It is easier to go down than it is to go up; it is easier to do wrong than it is t do right. Call to mind the comrades of your boyhood days some of them pood, some of them bud. Which most af fected you? Call to mind tha anecdotes you have heard in the last five or ten years some of them pure an l some of '.hem impure. Which the more easily ticks to your memory? During the years of your life you have formed certain courses of conduct some of them good, some of them bad. To which style of habit did you the more easily yield? Ah, my friends, yon have to take but a mo ment of self-inspection to fiad oat that there is in all our souls a force of moral gravitation! Bat that gravitation may bo resisted. Just as you may pick up from tho earth something and hold it in your hand toward Heaven, just so, by the power of God's grace, a soul fallen may be lifted toward peace, toward par don, toward Heaven. Force of moral gravitation in every one of us, but power in God's grace to overcome that force of moral gravitation. Tho next thing in the way of your re tm n is tho power of evil habit. I know there are those who say it is very easy for them to give up evil habits. I do not be lieve them. Here is a man given to in toxication. Ho knows it" is disgracing his family, destroying his property, ruining him, body, mind and soul. If that man, being aa intelligent man, and loving his family, could easily gne up that habit, would ho not do so? Tho fact that he ilocs not givo it up proves that it is hard to give it up. It is a very easy thing to sail down stream, tl'O tida carrying you with great force; but suppose you turn the boat up-stream, is it so easy then to row it? As long as we yield to the evil inclinations in our hearts, and our bad habits, we are sailing down-stream; but the moment we try to turn, we put our boat in the rapids just above Niagara, aad try to run up-otrcam. Take a man given to tho habit of using tobacco, as most of you do, aud let him resolve to stop, aud he finds it very diffi cult. Twonty-seveu years ago I quit the habit, and I would as soon dare put my right hand in the fire as once to indulge in it. Why? Because it was such a terrible struggle to get over it. Now, let a man b nu vised by his physician to give up the UiB of tobacco. 11 goes around not knowing what to do with himself. Ha can not add up a lino of figures. He can not sloep nights. It seems as if the world had turned upside down. Ho feels his business is going to ruin. Where he was kind and obliging he is scolding aud fret ful. The composure that characterized him has given way to a fretful restless ness, and ho has become a complete fidget. What power is it that has rolled a wave of woe over the earth aud shaken a portent in the heavens? He has tried to stop smoking or chewing! After awhile ho says: "1 um going to do as I please. The doctor doesu't understand my case. I'm going baek to my old habit." Aud he returns. Kvt ry thing assumes its usual composure. His business seems to brighteu. The world becomes an attract ive place to live in. His children, seeing the dill'creuce, hail the return of their father's genial disposition. What wave of c dor has dashed blno iu the sky, aud greenness into the mountain foliage, and the glow of sopphiro into tho sunset? What ene.hantni'Uit has lifted a world of beauty and joy on his soul? He has gone back to tobacco '. Ob, the fact is, as we all know iu our own experience, that habit is a taskmas ter; as long as we obey it, it does not rhasii.se us; bat let us resist, and wo find we are to be lashed with scorpion whips, and bound with ship cable, aud thrown into the track of bone-breaking Jugger nauts! Puri'-sg tin war of 1S1 there was a ship set on nre just above Niagara Falls, and then, cut loose from its moorings, it came on down through the night and tossed over the falls, it was said to have been a scene brilliant beyond all de scription. Well, there are thousands ot them ou fire of evil habit, coming down through the rapi Is aud through tha aw ful m:ght of temptation toward tho eternal piung. Ob, how hard it is to arrest them. God only can arrest thenv. Suppose a man, afier five or ton or twenty years of evil-doing, resolves to do right? Why, all tli-i forces of darkness are allied against Mm. He can not sleep nights. He goes down on his kuees iu the midnight aud cries: "God help me!" He biles his lip. II? grinds bis teeth. He clinches his fist iu Lis determination to keep l is purpose. He dare net look at the bottles in the wind .v of a, wine store. It was one long, bitter, exhaustive, hand- to-hand tilit with infl tmed. tantalizing aud iu T.-iless tiai.it. Wtieu lie thinks ho is entirely free, the old inclinations r-nuee upon l:im l.k. a pack of hounds with their muzzles tearinr away at the fianks of one poor reindeer. In 1'arU there is a sculptured representation of lljccl.us, the go. I of revelry. Ho is riding fc'u autlier at full leap. Uii, how fcU gestlre! Let every one- who Is speeding on bad ways understand he is not riding a docile and well-broken 6teed, but he is riding a monster, wild and blood-thirsty, going at a death-leap. How many there are who resolve on a better life and say: "When shall I awake?" But seized on by their old hab its cry: "I will try it once more; I will seek it yet again!" Years ego there were some Princeton students who were skat ing, and the ice was very thin, and some one warned the company back from the air hole, and finally warned them en tirely to leave the place. But one young man with bravado, after all the rest had stopped, cried out: "One round more !" He swept around and went down, and was brought out a corpse. My friends, there are thousands and tens of thou sands of men losing1 their souls in that way. It is the one round more. I have also to say that if a man wants to return from evil practices society re pulses him. Desiring to reform, he says: "Now I will shake off my old as sociates, and I will find Christian com panionship." And he appears at the church door some Sabbath day, and the usher greets him with a look, as much as to say: "Why, you here? You are the last man I ever expected to see at chnrch ! Come, take this seat right down by the door!" Invtead of saying: "Good morn ing; I am glad you are here. Come; I will give you a first-rate seat, right up by tha pulpit." Well, the prodigal, not yet discouraged, enters the prayer meeting, and some Christian man, with more zeal than common sense, says: "Glad to see you. The dying thief was saved, and I suppose there is mercy for you!" The young man, disgusted, chilled, throws himself back on his dignity, re solved he never will enter the house of God again. Perhaps not quite fully dis couraged about reformation, he sides np by some highly-respectable man he used to know going down the street, and imme diately the respectable man bas an er rand down some other street. Well, the prodigal, wishing to return, takes some member of a Christian association by the hand or tries to. This Christiap young man looks at him, looks at the faded ap parel and marks of dissipation, and in stead of giving him a warm grip of the hand offers him the tip end of the long fingers of the left hand, which is equal to striking a man in the face. Oil, how few Christian people under stand how much force and Gospel there is in a good, honest hand-shaking! Some times, when you have felt the need of en couragement, and some Christian man has taken you heartily by the hand, have you not felt that thrilling through every fiber of your body, mind and soul, an encourage ment that was just what you needed? You do not know any thing at all about this unless you know when a man tries to re turn home from evil courses of conduct, ho runs against repulsions innumer able. We say of some man, he lives a block or two from the church, or half a mile from ttie church. Tha re are people in our crowded cities who live a thousand miles from the church. Vast deserts of indifference between them and the house of God. The fact is, wo must keep our respectability, though thousands and tens of thousands perish. Christ sat with publicans and sinners. But if there comes to the house of God a man with marks of dissipatian upon him, people throw up their hands in horror, as much as to say: "Isn't it shocking?" How these dainty, fastidious Christians in all our churches are going to get into Heaven I don't know, unless they have aa especial train of cars, cushioned and up holstered, each one a car to himself? They can not eo with the great herd of publicans and sinners. Oh, ye who curl your lip of scorn at the fallen, I tell you plainly, it you had been surrounded by the same influences, instead of sitting to day amid the cultured and the refined and Christian, you would have been a crouch ing wretch in stable or ditch, covered with filth and abomination! It is not be cause you are naturally any better, "but because the mercy of God has protected you. Who are you that, brought up in Christian circles, and watched by Chris tian parentage, you should be so hard on the fallen? I thiuk men also are often hindered from return by the fact that churches are too anxious about their membership and too anxious about their denomiuation, and they rush out when they see a man about to give up his sin and return to God, and ask him how he is going to be baptized, whether by sprinkling or by immersion, and what kind of a church he is going to join. Oh, my friends! It is a poor time to talk about Presbyterian catechism and Episcopal liturgies, and Methodist love feasts, and baptisteries to a man that is com ing out of the darkness of sin into the glorious light of the Gos pel." Why, it reminds us of a man drown ing in the sea, and a life-boat puts out for him, and the man in the boat says to the man out of the boat: "Now if I get you ashore are you going to live in my street?" First get him ashore and then talk about the non-essentials of religion. Who cares what church he joins if he only joins Christ and starts for Heaven? Oh, you ought to have, my brother, an illuminated face and a hearty grip for every one that tries to turn from his evil way. Take hold of the same book with him, though his dissipations shake the book, reme.nbering that he that couvert eth a sinner from the error of his ways shall save a soul from death and hide a multitude of sins. Now, I have shown these obstacles be cause I want you to understand I kuow all the difficulties in the way; but I am now to tell you how Hannibal may scale the Alps and how the shackles may be uarivotod and how the paths of virtue forsaken may bo regained. First of all, my brother, throw yourself on God. Go to Him frankly aud earnestly and tell Him these habits you have, and ask Him, if there is any lielp iu all the resources of Omnipo tent love, to give it to you. Do not go with a long rigmnrolo people call prayer, mado up of "ohs" and "ahs" and "for ever aud forever aniens !" Go o God and cry for help! help! help! and if yon can not cry for help, just look and live. I re member in tho war I was at Antietam, and I went into the hospitals after tho battle, and I said to a man: "Where are you hurt?'' He made no answer, but held up his arm, swol len and splintered. I saw where he was hurt. The simple fact is, v. hen a man has a wounded soul, nil he has to do is to hold it up before a sympathetic Lord and get it healed. It does not take any long prayer. Just hold up the wound. Oh.it is no small thing when a man is nervous and weak aud exhausted, coming from his evil way?, to feel that God put two Omnipotent arms around about him and says: ' Young man, I will stand by you! The mountains may depart and the hills be removed, but 1 will never fail you." And then, as the soul thinks the news is too good to be true, aad can not believe it, and looks up in God's fice, God lifts His right band und takes an oath, an af fidavit, sayiig: "As I live, saith the Lord God, I Unve no pleasure in the death of him that dieth." Blessed be God for such a Gospel as this! "Cut the slices thin," said the wife to tho husband. ' or there will not be enough to go all around for the children; cut the slices thin." Blessed ba God, there is a lull loaf for every one that wants it; bread enough aud to spare. No thin slices at the Loru's table. I remem ber when tho M xster Street Hospital, in Philadelphia, was opened during the war a telegram came, saving: "Tnere will be three hundred woun le 1 men to-night; bo ready to take cars of them;" and from 1 my tharcu Uiure went iu borne tuty or thirty men and women to look after then poor wounded fellows. As they camo. some from one part of the land, soma from another, no one asked whether this man was from Oregon, or from Massa chusetts, or from Minnesota, or from New York. There was a wounded soldier, ac.d the only question was how to take off the rags most gently, and put on the bandage and administer the cordial. And when a soul comes to God He does not ask where you came from cr what your ancestry was. Healing for all your wounds, par don for all your guilt, comfort for all your troubles. Then, also, I counsel you, if you want to get back, to quit all your bad associa tions. One unholy intimacy will fill yont soul with moral distemper. In all tba ages of the churek there Iras not been in instance where a man kept one evil asso ciate and was reformed. Among the f our teen hundred millions of the race not one instance. Go homo to-day, open your desk, take out letter paper, stamp an en velope, and then write a letter something like this: "My Old Companions I start this day for Heaven. Until I am persuaded y will join me in this, farewell." Then sign your name and send the let ter with the first post. Give up your lad companions or give up Heaven. It is not ten bad companions that destroy a man, nor five bad companions, nor three ban companions, but one. What chance is there for that young man I saw along tha street, four or five young men witli him, halting in front of a grog shop, urgiug him to go in, he resisting violently re sisting until after awhile they forced him to go in? It was a summer night and the door was left open, and I saw the process. They held him fast, and tbey put the cup to his lips, and they forced down the strong drink. What chance ia there for such a young man? I counsel you also seek Christian ad vice. Every Christian man is bound to help you. First of all, seek God; then seek Christian counsel. Gather up all the energies of body, mind and soul, and, ap pealing to God for success, declare this day everlasting war against all drinking habits, all gambling practices, all houses of sin. Half-and-half work will amount to nothing; it must be a Waterloo. Shrink back now and you are lost. Push on and you are saved, A Spartan General fell at th very moment of victory, but hi dipped his finger in his own blood t.n wrote on a rock near which he was dy Ing, ''Sparta has conquered." Though your struggle to get rid of sin may soem to be almost a death struggle, you can dip your finger in your own blood and write on the Rock of Ages: "Victory through our Lord Jesus Christ." Oh, what glorious news it would be for some of these young men to send home to their parents. They go to the post -office every day or two to see whether there are any letters from you. How anxious they are to hear. Some one said to a Grecial General: "What was the proudest moment in your life?" He thought a moment, and se.id: "The proudest moment in my life was when I sent word home to my parents that I had gained the victory." And tha proudest and most brilliant moment in your life will be the moment when you can send word to your parents that you have conquered your evil habits by tha grace of God and become eternal victor. Oh, despise not parental anxiety! The time will come whon you will have neither father nor mother, and you will go around the placo where they used, to watch you and find them gone from the house, and gone from the field, and gone from the neighborhood. Cry as loud for forgiveness as yon may over the mound ia the churchyard, they will not answer. Dead! Dead! And then you will take out the white lock of hair that was cut from your mother's brow just before they buried her, and you will take tho cane witli which your father used to walk, and you will think and think and wish that you had done just as they wanted you to and would give the world if you had never thrust a pang through their dear eld hearts. God pity the poor young man who has brought disgrace on his father's name ! God pity the youug man who has broken his mother's heart 1 Better if ho had never been born better if, in the nrst hour of his life, instead of being laid against the warm bosom of maternal tenderness, he had been coffined and sepulchered. There is no balm powerf ul enough to heal the heart of one who has brought parents to a sorrowful grave and who wander about through tho dismal cemetery, rending the hair and wringing the hands aud crying: "Mother! mother 1" Oh, that to-day, by all the memories of the past and by all tho hopes of the future you would yield your heart to God! Ma your father's God and your mother's Go bo your God forever! MEAT FOR LAWYERS. Curious Legal Sequels to the Coueinungli Valley Flood. There are other losses, difficulties and embarrassments beyond all yet indicated that may come in the wake of this deluge. Great numbers of important papers and documentary evidence have been wwdiod away and in part or wholly destroyed evi deuces of debts due or of credits claimed notes, bills, bonds, agreements, contract book accounts memoranda of work an labor done and papers relating to all of tho great variety of relations between debtor and creditor and employer and cm, ployed It will require the highest exorcise of honesty, equity and forbearance to bring justice and right out of tho coil that inighl come from tho loss 'of such a mass of papers.

Two Hundred and Eighty Tears of Im a pniTemeut, In 1609, after traversing the Hudson River from its mouth to Albany, aud care fully noting the grandeur and beauty on either side of this magnificent highway of nature, Hendriclt Hudson wrote these words : "It Is as beautiful a land as one can tread upon." Two hundred and eighty years have mar velousiy increased the beauty of the great river called by his name, and could he re turn to the scenes of his manhood, he would fina many more lovely 6ights than those upon which his eyes rested in the early part of the seventeenth century. The natural beauties of the Hudson are much the same, and no description can exaggerate them; but the magniheent steamers that ply between New York aud Albany, the innumerable sailing craft that dot the surface of the mighty river, the never-ending clusters of canal boats that are being towed up and down, the beautiful villas that one encounters at every turn, the magnificent monuments, perpetuating heroic deeds, that we find here and there along the banks of this noblest river of the continent, add an endless va riety to the scenery, and a resistless charm to the eye of the traveler. The Now York Central and Hudson River Railroad runs along the bank of the Hudson river the entire distance between New York and Albany, anr is the great Trunk Line that connects the metropolis of the Western world with the famous health and pleasure resorts of Central, Northern and Western New York, including in its list the Catskill Mountains, Saratoga, Lake George, Sharon and Richfield Springs, Lake Ontario, the Berkshire Hills, Niagara Falls, the Thou sand Islands, Lake Champlain, the River St. Lawrence, and hundreds of others. The New York Central is a part of the great national highway across tho conti nent, and for tho beauty of its scenery, the number and importance of the cities through which it passes, its almost total lack of grades and curves, this great four-track railway is unsurpassed in Kurope or Amer ica.
