Astronomers use tuo line thread for cross lines ou lho object glaia of tho telescope. We shall hare to start a fpiJer farm, .suggests the New York Herald, His well known, Kayn V. E. Cnrti in tho Chicago Record, that Risiuarck encouraged tho Germuu baukern to niako the lat Cuban loan some year Rao with the expectation that sooner or later the Spanish government would be nnablo to pay tho principal Mid interest. Then Germany would havo an opportuuity to foreclose on tho propety and tako possession of ho richebt island in tho whole West Indies. Caricatures have in many instances helped rather than hindered tho sub ject, and it is a proud day for a bud ding statesman, when ho is considered big enough to be taken olT in Puck or Judge. Thero ure many men in Con" gress, declares the New York Mail and Express, who would givo a month's salary to appear in a double-page cat toon. Rut they aro men who know the value of advertising even in politics. The Savannah Ga., News (dates that "Florida is bountifully supplied with legal holidays. She evidently set out to celebrate every day to which any importance attaches, and thinks fine lias about got them all. If any has been skipped the calling of her atten tion to the fact would doubtless bo appreciated. Her legal holidays aro as follows: New Year's Day, Jan. 1 ; Washington's Birthday, Feb. 22 ; In dependence Day, July 4; Labor Day, first Monday in September; Thanks giving Day, general election day; Christmas, Dec, 25; Lee's birthday, Jan. 19; Memorial Day, April 2G;and Jefferson Davis's birthday, June 3." Cecil Rhodes, Ex-Premier of South Africa, pretends to be shocked that England and the United States should be quarreling over some barren land in South America, when they have it in their power to live together liko brothers and enforce pouco through out the world. This is just the way the British talked in 1813, soliloquises tho Atlanta Constitution, when they were trying to grab Oregon, Wash ington and Idaho. At that time the London Examiner said: "We wonder that ignorant Americans are disponed to quarrel over a country, tho whole in dispute not worth to either party $100,000! The Edinburgh Review, with prophetio eyesight, says : 'Only a small part of the land is capable of cultivation. In a few years all that gives life to the country, both the hunter and his prey, will be extinct, and their places will be supplied by a thin white and half-breed population, gradually degenerating into barba rism far more offensive than backwood ism.'" The British came near suc ceeding in their scheme, and they made many Americans believe that the great West was a worthless territory, eon tines the Constitution. Fortu nately, we then had statesmen at Wash ington who knew the facts of the case, and thei patriotic efforts saved to the Union three great commonwealths. The English are now trying to belittie Venezuela, but, if the disputed terri tory i worthies why have .they strained every nerve to seize it during the past seventy years? MiV. DK.

Thu highest pillars of tho earth are pillars of ice Mont Jilauc, Junk'frau, I lie Matterhorn. The largest Ral lerles of tins world are galleries of ice. Soma of the mlchty rivers much of the year are in captivity of ice. The greatest sculptors of the ages ftro the glaciers, with arm aud hand and chisel and hammer of ice. The cold l.s Imperial and has a crown of glittoring crys tal nud is sealeii. on a throne of ice, with with footstool a Kcepiur of ice. Who can tell the sufferings of the winter of 143:3, when all the birds ef Germany port.shed? or the winter of 1038 in Euglaiid, when the stages rolled on the Thames and temporary houses of merchandise were built on tho ice? or the winter" of 1821 in America, when Now York harbor was fioz' n over and the heavi est teams crossed on the lee to Staten Islam)? Then come down to our own winters when there have been so many wrapping them selves in furs or gathering themselves around flres or thrashing their arms about them to revive circulation the millions of the tem perate anu me areuo zones wno are com pelled to confess, "none of us can stand bo fore His cold."' One-half of the industries of our day are employed in battling inclemency of the weather. The furs of tho North, the cotton of the South, the flax of our own fields, the wool of our own flocks, the coal from our own mines, the wood from our own forests, all employed in battling these inclemencies, and still every winter, with blue iips and chattering teeth, answers, "None of us can stand before thin cold." Now, this being such a oold world, God sends out influences to warm it. I am glad that the God of the frost is the God of the heat; that the God ol the snow is the God of the white blotsoms; that the God of January is the God of June. The question as to how we warm this world up is a question of immediate and all encom passing practicality. In this zona and weather thero are so many tireless hearths, o many broken window panes, so many de fective roofs that sift the snow. Coal and wood and flannels and thick coat are hotter for warming up such a plnce than tracts and liiblcs and creeds. Eindlethat lire where it has gone out. Wrap something around those shivering limbs. Shoe those Dare foot. Hat that bare head. Coat that bare back. Sleeve that bare arm. Nearly all the pictures of Martha Washington represent nor in courtly Ureas as bowed to by foreign embas sadors, but Mrs. Kirkland, in her interesting book, gives a more Inspiring portrait of Martha Washington. She comes forth from her husband's hut in the encampment, the hut sixteen feet long by fourteen foet wide she comfis forth from that hut to nurse the sick, to sew the patched garments, to con sole tho soldiers dying of the cold. That is a better picture of Martha Washington. Hundreds of garments, hundreds of tons of coal, hundreds of glaziers at broken window sashes, hundreds of whole souled men and women are necessary to warm the wintry weather. What are we doing to alleviate the condition of those not so fortunate as we? Know ye not, my friends, there are hundreds of thousands of people who cannot stand be fore this cold? It is useless to preach to bare feet, and to empty stomach, and to gaunt visages. Christ gave the world a les son In common sense when, before preaoh lng the gospel to-tho multitude in the Wilderness, He gave them a good dinner. When I was a lad I remember seeing two rough woodcuts, but they made more im pression upon me than any pictures I have ever seen. They wero on opposite pages. The one woodcut represented the coming of the snow in winter and a lad looking out nt the door of a great mansion, and he was all wrapped in furs, and his cheeks were ruddy, and with glowing countenance he shouted: "It snows, it snows!" On the next page thero was a miserable tenement, and the door was open and a child, wan and sick and ragged and wretched, was looking out, and he said. "Oh, my God, it snows!" The win ter of gladness or of griof, according to our circumstances. But, my friends, there is more than one way of warming up this cold world, for It In a c .l w .rlt In mor r l tlnui mm, m, 1 am In rn to roimtilt vi it ll y m tl t i t!m I -t ni wanning no tlm W :rl I, ' 1 want lo lmv.i u grunt h'-nli-r lu Iro.lii I tut. i nil oti r i 'hiiri-ii' mi I nil vir li'ifiir thro. ulenii Id r...

Look at tlm fellow reeling displayed In tn roeky delll beUfi'en Jerusalem and Jericho In Scripture finms. Her is a man who lias b'jcu sot upon by th bandits, and in the struggle to keep his proper,' he ha got wounded aud mauled and stabhed, an t be lies there half dead. A priest rtdesalong He fees him and nays: "Why, what's the mailer with that man? Wbv. h" iuut be hurt, lying on tlm Hat of his back. Isn't it Strang that Im should littmre! Hut 1 can't slop. 1 am on my way to tempi servicee. Go along, y.ni b -ast. Carry nm up to my tmplu duties." Afterawhlle a I.evito comes up. He looks over and says: "Why, that man must be vry much hurt. G;lIio1 on the forehead. What a pity, rdablio I under his arm. Wnat a pity. Tut, tut! Wh it h pity! Why. they have taken his clothes nearly away from him. Hut I haven't time to stop. I lead tlm choir up in the temple service. Ga along, you betsl. Carry nm up to my temple duties." After awhilu a Samaritan comes alone ono who you might suppusu through a Na tional grudge might have rejected this poor wounded Israelite." Coming along he sees this man and says: "Why, that man must bo terribly hurt. I s 'e by his features In is an Israelite, imt im is a man and ho is a brother. 'Whoa'.' " says tlm Samaritan, an t lie gets down off tho beast and comes up to this wounded man, gets down on one knee, listens to seo whctlmr the heart of the un fortunate man is still beating, makes up his mind there is a chance for resuscitation, goes to work at him. takes out of bis sack a bottle of oil and a bottlo of wine, clonuses the wound with some wine, then pours some of the restorative in the wounded man's lips, then takes some oil and with it sooths the wound. Aflor awhile he takes off a part of bis garment for n bandage. Now tho sick and wounded man sits up, pale and exhausted, but very thankful. Now the good Samaritan says, "You must get on my saddle, nnd I will walk." The Samaritan helps and ten derly steadios this wounded man until he pats him on toward the tavern, tho wounded man holding on with the little strength he has left, ever nnd anon looking down at tho gocd Samaritan nnd saying: "You are very kind. I had no right to expect this thing of a Samaritan when 1 am nn Israelite. You are very kind to walk and lot me ride." Now they have eomo up to tho tavern. The Samaritan, with the help of the landlord, assists tho fcick and wounded man to dis mount and puts him to bed. Tho Bible says the Samaritan staid all night. In the morning. I suppose, the Samaritan went in to look how his patient was aud ask him how he passed the night. Then he comes out tho Samaritan comes out and ssys to tho landlord: "Hero i money to . pay that mans board, and if his convalescence is not as rapid as I hope for, charge tho whole thing to mo. Good-morning, all. lift gets on tho beast and says: "Go along, you boast, but go slowly, for those banditssweop- ing tnrougn tne innit may nave lert some' body else wounded and half dead." Svnv pathy! Christian sympathy! How many such men as that would it take to warm the cold world up? Famine in Zarepthath Everything dried up. There is a widow with a son and no food except a handful of meal. She is gathering sticks to kindle a Jlre to cook the handful of meal. Then she is go ing to wran her arms around her bov nnd die. Hero comes Elijah. His two black servants, the ravens, have got tired waiting on mm. no asks that woman for rood. Now, that handful of meal is to bo divided into three parts. Before, it was to be divided into two purts. Now, sho says to Elijah: "Come in and sit down at this solemn table and take a third of tho last morsel." How many women like that would it take to warm tho cold world up.' Recently an euginoer in the Southwest, on a locomotive, saw a train coming with which he must collide. Ho resolved to stand at his post aud slow up the train until the last min ute, for there wero passengers behind. Tho engineer said to the fireman: "Jump! Ono man is enough on th'.s engine! Jump!" Tho flroman jumped and was saved. The crash came. The engineoi died at his post. How many men like that engineer would It take to warm this oold world up? A vessel struck on a rocky island. The passengers and the crew were without food, uud a sailor had a shellfish under his coat. He was saving it for his last motsel. He heard a little child cry to her mother: "Oh, mother, I am so hungry; give me something to eat. I am so hungry!" Tho sailor took the shellfish from under his coat and said: "Here! Take that. How many men like that sailor would it take to warm the oold world up Xerxes, fleeing from his enemy, got on board boat. A great many Persians leaped into tne same boat and the boat was sinkinsr Some one said, "Are you not willing to make a sacrillce for your klngr"' and the ma orltv of those who were in the boat leaped over board and drowned to save their king. How many men like that would it tako to warm up this cold world?

And If Christ is tho great warmer, then the church i tho great hothouse, with Its plants an I trees and fruits of righteous-ne-s. Do von know, my friejids, that tho hureh is the institution that propose. warmth? I have be-n for twenty-seven years studying how to ma1; the church warmer. Warm"r architecture, warmer hymr.ology, warmer Christian salutation. All outside Sibor'an winter, wo must have it a prlnco'g hothouse. he only Institution on earth to- lay that proposes to m ike the world warmer. Universities and observatories, they all havo their work. They propose to make tho world light, but t!my do not propose to make the world warm. Geology informs us, but it is ascol i as the rock tt hammers. Tho tele- Hcopeshows when, the other worlds aro, but an astronomer is chilled while looking through it. Chemistry tells us of strango jmtituationsau I how inferior afllnltv may 1)9 overcome bv superior affinity; but It can not tell how all things work together for good. Worldly philosophy has a great splendor, but it is the splendor of moonlight on an iceberg. The church of God proposes warmth and hope warmth for the expecta tions, warmth for the sympathies. Oh! I am so glad that these great altar tires have beeu kindled. Come in out of tho cold. Come in, and have your wounds salved. Come, aud have your sins pardoned. Come in bythe great gospel fireplace. Notwithstanding all the modern inven tions for heating, I tell you thore is nothing so full of geniality and sociality as the old fashioned country fire-place. The neigh bors were to oomo in for a winter evening of sociality. In the middle of the afternoon, in tne best room of the house, some one brought in a groat backlog with great strain and put it down on the back of tho hearth. Then the lighter wool was put on, armful arter armtui. men a shovel or coals was taken from another room and put under tho dry pile, and tne kindling began, aud the crackling, and it rose until it became a roar ing flame, which filled all tho room with geniality and was reflected from the family pictures ou the walls. Then the neighbors came in two by two. They sat down, their faoes to the fire, which ever and anon was stirred with tongs and readjusted on the andirons, and thero wore such times ot rustic repartee and story telling aud mirth as the black stove aud tho blind register never dreamed of. Meanwhile the table was being spread, and so fair was tho cloth aud so clean was the cutlery, they glisten and glisten in our mind to-day. And thon the host luxury of orchard and farmyard was roasted and prepared for the table, to meet appetitos sharpened by the cold ride. O. my friends, the church of Jesus Christ is the world's fireplace, and the woods aro from the cedars of Lebauon. and the fires are flros of love, and with the silver tongs of the altar we stir the flame, and the light is re floated from all the family pictures on the wall pictures of thos'i who were hero and are gone now. O, coma up closo to the fire place! Have your faces transfigured in the light. Put your cold feet, weary of tho jour ney, close up to the blessed conllagration. Chilled through with trouble and disappoint ment, oome close up until you can get warm, dear through. Exchange experience, talk over the harvests gatherad, tell all the gos pel news. Meanwhile the table is being spread. On it, bread of life. On it. grapes of Eshool. On It, new wine from the king dom. On it, a thousand luxuries celostial. Hark! as a woundod hand raps on the table and a tender voice comes through saying: "Come, for all thiugs are now ready. Eat, O friends! drink, yea, drink abundantly, O beloved!"
