According to a scientist who has
been looking into tho question, three
times as much rain falls in Eastern
Kanna8 as is required for the growing
of bountiful crops. Tho problem is
to conservo this moiBturo by means of
deep plowing, mulching and pond
building in order to have it available
for unusually dry seasons. lie finds
that it cau bo dono and is being done
by a steadily increasing number of
farmers every year.
In the last National election there
were cast 12,073,037 out of 15,137,889
eligibles. Out of the ascertained
population in 1800 of 02,622,230 the
number of church communicants was
only 20,013,307. Allowing 3,300,000
as the number of Protestant voting
communicants, and 2,000,000 Catho
lics, the total church vote, a3 estimat
ed by the Atlanta Constitution, is a
fractipn over 5,000,000 out of 15,
000,000 voters.
It is a most refreshing view of Queen
life that wo are invited to by a foreign
correspondent, when Queen Victoria
is pictured as seeking relief from tho
cares of state in "plain, humble knit
ting," and Queen Carola, of Saxony,
is described as "arrayed in a big apron
over her royal robes and engaged in
making jam." But these are not thq
only queen-like women who have de
lighted in these humble and useful oc
cupations, adds tho New York Mail

or cottage.
A Troy man now in Ojo Calicnte,
New Mexico, writes to tho Troy (N.
Y.) Times about the remarkable cli
mate and powerful waters of that
place. On three successive mornings
the mercury at Ojo Caliente indicated
twenty degrees below zero, eighteen
degrees below and four degrees below,
jet by 9 o'clock on these mornings
the therometcr had risen to ten to
twenty degrees above, and during the
middle of the day an overcoat was
superfluous. In fact, there have been
but four days in several weeks when
it was not possible to sit in the house
with the door wide open and read or
write in comfort. The air i3very dry
and crisp, and even when the mercury
sinks below zero the cold is not felt.
But, while the climato is remarkable,
it is nothing compared with the waters,
which are particularly recommended
to persons suffer in j from locomotor
ataxia, paralysis and rheumatic
troubles. The Trojan writes, and
vouches for tho truth of the state
ment, that a native placed a cowhide
in a tub and let the water run on it
during the night, and in tho morning
it was found that the skin had com
pletely dissolved, leaving nothing but
the hair. A person bathing in the
water must use extreme care and can-
no's stay in tho tab more than fifteen
minutes, fcr the water softens the skin
so that scratches and cuts are very
easily received.
Cobbtjpt methods are not near as
certain to win as honest ones.

i.ui in my iet ,n worso dlseouiIHuro. It
sems that a blncl; jtnnt proposed to con
quer tho art.'i. Ho gathered for bis ho.t all
the a 'he ami pninsand mala lies and dis
tempers and epidemics of the ages. Ha
marched them down, drilling them in tho
northeast wind, amid tho Mush of tempests.
Ho threw up barricade! of gravo mouud. Ha
lutcliod tent of enamel house. Home of the
troop3 marched with slow tread, commanded
oy eousumpii'ms; tome la uoublo quick,
commanded by pn iiimonias. Some ho took
by long be.siegement of evil habit nud some
by one stroke of the battlenx of casualty.
"Wit h bony hand he pounded at the doors of
hospitals and sickrooms and won all tho vic
tories in all the great battlefields of all the
five continents. Forward, march! this con
queror of conquerors, nnd all tho generals
aad commanders-in-chief, and all presidents
and kings and sultans and czars drop under
tho feet of his wareharger.
liut one Christina1 night his antagonist was
born. As most of the plagues and sicknesses
and dcspoti-sms came out of the east it was
appropriate that the new conqueror should
come out of the same quarter. Power is
given Him to awaken all the fallen of all the
centuries and of all lands and Marshal them
against the black giant. Fields have already
been won. but tho last day" will sea the de
cisive battle. When Christ shall lead forth
His two brigades, the brigade of the risen
dead and the brigade of the celestial host, tho
black giant will fall back, and the brigade
from the riven sepulehers will take him from
beneath, and the brigado of descending im
mortals will take him from above, and
"death shall be swallowed up in victory."
Tho old braggart that threatened tho con
quest and demolition of the plnuot has lost
his throne, has lost his scepter, has lost his
palace, has lost his priige, and tho one
word written over all the gates of mausoleum
and catacomb and necropolis, on cenotaph
and sarcophagus, on the lonely cairn of the
Arctic explorer and on the catafalque of
great cathedral, written in capitals of azalea
and calla lily, written In musical cadence,
written in doxology of great assemblages,
written on the sculptured door of the family
vault, is "Victory. Coronal word, emban
nered word, apocalyptic word, chiof woid of
triumphal arch under which conquorors re
turn. Victory! Word shouted at Culloden
and Balaklava and Blenheim; at
Megiddo and Solferino: at Marathon, where
tho Alheniaus drove back the Modes; at
Foictiers, where Charles Martel broke the
ranks of the Saracens; at Balamis, whore
Themistooles in the great soa fight confound
ed the Persians, and at the door of the east
era cavern of chiseled rock, where Christ
came out through a recess and throttled the
king of terrors and put him baok in tho
niche from which the celestial oonquoror
had just emerged. Aha, when the jaws of
tho eastern mausoleum took down the black
giant, "death was swallowod up iu victory!"
I proclaim the abolition of death. The old
antagonist is driven back into mythology
with all the lore about Stygian ferry and
Charon with oar and boat. We shall have
no more to do with death than we have with
the cloakroom nt a governor's or president's
levee. We stop at such cloakroom and leave
in charge of the servant our overcoat, our
oversnoes, our ouiwara apparel that we may
not do impeuea in me Driniant round of the
drawing room. Well, my friends, when we
go out of this world we are going to a king's
banquet, and to a reception of monarchs. and
at the door of the tomb, we leave the cloak
of flesh and the wrappings with which we
meet the storms of the world. At the clos
of our earthly reception, under the brush and
broom of tho portor, the coat or hat may be
handed to us better than when we resigned
it, and the cloak of humanity will finally bo
returned to us improved and brightened nud
purified and glorified. You and I do not
want our bodies returned to us as they aro
now. We want to get rid of all thoir weak
nesses, and all their susceptibilities 'to fa
tigue, and all their slowness of locomotion.
They will be put through a chemistry of soil
and heat and cold and changing seasons out
of which God will reconstruct them as much
better than they Rre now as the body of the
rosiest and healthiest child that bounds over
the lawn is better than the sickest patient in
the hospital.
. But as to our soul, we will cross right over,
not waiting for obsequies, independent of
obituary, into a state in evory way better,
with wider room and velocities beyond com
putation; tho dullest of us into companion
ship with the vory best spirits in their very
best moods, in the very best room of the uni
verse, the four walls furnished and pauolod
and pictured and glorified with all thespleu
dors that the infinite God in all ages has been
able to invent. Victory !
This view of course makes it of but little
importance whether we aro cremated or
sepultured. If the latter Is dust to dust, the
former is ashes to ashes. If any prefer in
cineration, let them have it without carica
ture. The world may lcomo so crowded
that cremation may bo universally adopted
by law as well as by general consent. Many
of the mightiest and bet of earth have gone
through this process. Thousands and tons
of thousands u God's children have beeu

"Why Mioul I it bo thought a thing in-
eredMilo T.-itti you that God should raise the
dead," Where did all this silk come from
th i silk that adorns vour pet-sops and vour
homes? In tho hollow of a staff a Greek
missionary brought from China to Europe
the progenitors or those worms that now
supply tho siik markets of many Nations.
Iho pageantry of bannered hosts n:ul the
luxurious articles of commercial emporium
blazing out from tho silk worms! And who
shall be surprised if, out of this insignificant
earthly lire, our bodies unfold into something
worthy of the coming eternities? Put silver
into diluted niter, and it dissolves. Ls tho
silver gone forever? No. Put in somo pieces
of copper, and tho silver reappears. If ono
force dissolves, another force reorganizes.
"Why should It be thought a thing in
credible with you that God should raise tho
dead? ' The insects flew and the worms
crawled last autumn fielder and feebler and
then stopped. They have taken no food;
they want none. They lie dormant and in
sensible, but soon the south wind will blow
the resurrection trumpet, and the air and tha
earth will be full of them. Do you not think
that God can do as ranch for our bodies as He
does for the wasps, and the sp dors, and tho
snails? This morning at half past 4 o'clock
there was a resurrection. Out of tho night, j
the day. In a few weeks tb i will be a res
surrectlon in all our gardens. Why not some
day a resurrection amid all the graves?
Ever and anon there aro instances of men
and women entranced.
A trance is death, followed by resurrection
after a few davs total suspension of mental
power and voluntary action. Rev. William
Ten nent, a groat evangelist of the lost gon
oration, of whom Dr. Archibald Alexander, a
man far from being sentimental, wrote in
most eulogistio terms Itev. William Ten
uent soemod to diov Ilia spirit seemed to
have departed. People camo in dav after
day and said, "Ho is dead; he is dead." But
the soul returned, and William Tennent lived
to write out experionoas of what he had seen
while his soul was gone. It may be found
some time what is called suspended anima
tion or comatose state is brief doath, giving
the soul an excursion into the next world,
from which it comes baek a furlough of a
few hours granted from tho conflict of life to
which it must return.
Do not this waking up of men from trance
and this waking up of grains buried 3000
years ago make it easier for you to believe
that your body and mine, after the vacation
of tho grave, shall rouso and rally, though
there be 3000 years between our last breath
ami the sounding of thearchangolio reveille?
Physiologists tell us that, while the most of
our bodies are built with such wonderful
economy that we can spare nothing, and tho
loss of a finger is a hindrance, and tho in
jury of a toe joint makes us lame, still wo
have two or three apparently useless physii
cal apparati. and no anatomist or physiolog
ist has ever been able to toll what they are
good for. Perhaps they are the foundation
of the resurrection body, worth nothing to
us in this state, to bo indispensibly valuable
in the next state. The Jewish rabbis appear,
to have had a hint of this suggestion when
they said that in the human frame there was
a small bone which was to bo the basis of the
resurrection body. That may have been a
delusion. But this thing is certain, the Chris
tian scientists of our day have found ou
that there are two or three superfluities ot
the body that are something gloriously sugf
gestive of another state.
I culled at my friend's houso one Summer
day. I found the yard all piled up with rub
bish of carpenter's and mason's work. Tho
door wins off. The plumbers had torn uptho
floor. The roof was being lifted in cupola.
All tho pictures were gone, and tho paper
hangers doing their work. All tho modern
Improvements were being introduced into
that dwelling. There was not a room in tho
house lit to live in at that time, although a
month before, when I visited that house,
everything was so beautiful I could not have
suggested an improvement. My friend had
gone with his family to the Holy Land, ex
pecting to come baek at the eud of six months,
when tho building was to be done.
And, oh, what was his joy when at the
end of six months he returned and tho old
house was enlarged and improved and glo
rillod! That is your body! It loooks well
now. All the rooms filled with health, and
we conld hardly make n suggestion. But
after awhile your soul will go to tho Holy
Jjaad, ami while youaru gone the old houso
of your tabernacle will bo eatiroly reon
structed from cellar to attic, every nerve,

Samuel R. Jordan has just given the Jonr
mlati account of his liffl, which ia viw of
his extremnly hard lot for tuu pait few years
ill be read with interest.
"I am 43 years old and have always lived
In New Portland. I eulisto I ia the army In
1862 as a private ii Company A, 2Sih Ma.
Volunteers. My army experience injured mj
hoalth to some extont, although I worked at
blacksmithing somo part of tho time, when
suddenly, several years ago, I was prostrated
with what able physicians pronounced Lo
comotor Ataxia, At first I could get around
somewhat, yet tho disease progressol quite
rapidly until I had hardly any feeling in my
legs and feet, they felt like sticks of wood
and I grew so much worse that I could not
move for three years without help, as my
neighbors and friends could testify. I em
ployed several physicians In ray vicinity, and
elsewhere, and they all told me that medi
cines would not help me, that they could do
nothing to effect a cure, and that in titna I
should become entirely helpless. I bocanu
discouragod. I was a great caro to my wif
and friends. Shortly after I met nn old army
comradif, Mr. All. Parlin, a resident of Mad
ison, Maine, and he incidentally montionod
how he had tried Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for
a severe case of rheumatism and a spiaal aud
malarial trouble, that he had suffcrol with
consequent of his army life, and been greatly
benefited by thoir use. By his earnest rec
ommendation I was induced to try the pills.
After taking them for a time I began to feel
prickly sensations in my logs and a return of
strongth so I could move them a little. After
a few woeks I began to feol a marked im
provement in my condition. . I soon was en
abled to walk around a little with tho help
of crutches. After taking for some time 1
can now walk without crutches, ray general
health is much improved and I have re
gained my old-time vigor. I can walk
about and enjoy life onw more, for which I
feel very thankful, anil this happy result is
due to the use of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills."
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for Pale People
are not a patent medicine in the sense that
name implies. They wero first compounded
as a prescription and used as such in general
practice by an eminent physician. So great
was their efficacy that it was deemed wise to
place them within tho reach of all. They
are now manufactured by the Dr. Williams'
Medicine Company, Schenectady, N. Y., and
are sold in boxes (never in loose'form by the
dozen or hundred, and the public are cau
tioned against numerous imitations sold in
this shape) at 50 cents a box, or six boxes for
5X00, ana may be had of all druggists or di
