Bezln' nin with those who will lljjht on the wrong W'l", 1 tirst mention tlje ltecimentu Uiiv I'olk. Iat.'iift very chapter from which my text is taken we are told that the pplritsof devils will bo there. How many millions of them no one can tell, for thi Btatlatics of the Hfttanlc dominions have never been re- ytortea ani tne roil 01 that host nas never on earth been called: but from the direful. nnrl continental, and planetary wo-k they Lave already doue, and the fact that every man nna woman nna child on ennn has a leaipter. there must bo at least sixteen bun tlret millions of evil spirits familiar with our world., i'ernnps as many more are en- paired on especial enterprises of abomina. tion anions: the Nations and empires of the earth, ljeside that there rou.t be an incon ceivable number of Inhabitants in realms raudomonlac, staying there to keep the creat caoltals of sin coiner from aare to aire. Many of them once lived in heaven, but enfeatjin? In conspiracy to put Satan on the throne, they were hurled out and down, ana they are now nmonpthe worst thugs of the universe. Having been in three worlds, Heaven, earth and hell, they have all the advantages of Kreat experience. Their power, their speed, their cunning, their hostility wonderful beyond all statement! In the Ar mageddon they will, I doubt not, be present in full array. They will have no reserve corps, but all will be at the front. There will not only be soldiers in that battle who can be seen and aimed at. but trocps intangible and without corporeity, and weapons may Btrike clearthrough them without giving them hurt With what shout of defiance will they climb up the ladders of fire and leap from the battlements of asbestos into the lat cam paign ot hell! Paul, the bravest of all men, v.as impressed with their miu hx tot evil when, lie said, "We wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalitles,nnd against powers, and against the rulers of the dark ness in this world, against spiritual wicked ness in high places." Oh, what an agitating " moment, when the ranks diabollo move up and take their places for conflicts in the Ar mageddon! Other regiments who will march into tho fight will be the Regiment Alcoholic. They will be made of tho brewers' companies, dis tillery owners and liquor TrKfffrs' associa tions, and the hundreds of millions of their patrons. These millions of victims of alco hol joined by the millions of the victims of arrack, the spirituous liquor of China and India, and Arabia, and Egypt, and Ceylon, und S am. Other regiments who will march into the ngnt on tno wrong side win do me ungi meuts Infidel. God gave but one revelation to tne human race, and these men have been trying to destroy it. Many of the books, magazines and newspapers, through per petual scoff at Christianity, and some of the universities have become recruiting agencies - for those regimen s. The greatest brigadier of all those regiments, Voltaire, who closed his lif of assault upon Christianity by writ ing: "Happiness is a dream, and only pain is real. I Mivo thought so ior eighty-four years, aud I know no better plan than to re sign myself to the inevitable and to reflect that flies are boru to be devoured by spiders nnd man to be consumed by care. 1 wish I had never been born." Ob. the God-for-fanen regimeuts of infidels, who, after hav ing spent their life ntitr.gonixing the only in fluence that could make the earth better, cat her with their low wit and their vile sneer end their learned idiocy and their horrible biast.hemy to, take part against God and righteouHtiess in the great Aruvigeddon! Other regimenis who will march in onthe . the wrong side in the battle will be the Begi inenls Mohammedan. At the present time there are about one hundred and seventy five million Moslems. Their plain mission into kill Christians, demean womanhood, nnd take possession of the earth in the inter est of ignorance, superstition, and mora( Jllth.

With What ver.orri, with what violence, with what des peratlmi they will fall into linn at the great Armageddon! Is it not appalling, these uncounted regiment of th arth, to b joined by the uncounted regiments from perJItton? Can any t.owr coptt with them? Lspttetally when I tell you who their com mander is, for no much in all w.tn depends upon the chieftain. Their loader will not be a political accident or a military "hap pen so." By talent, nud adroltnes anj courngs, anil unceasing industry he has come to ths bad eminence. II' disputed the throne of heaven with the Almightv, but no one has ever dlspulod the throne of eter nal night with this monarch who will in the lust battle take the Hold in person. Milton calls htm Lucifer, Goethe calls htm Mephts topheles, the Hebrew call) him Abaddon, the Oieek calls him Anollvoa Ha in th Imner souatiou of nil malevolence, ot ail oppres sion, of all cruelty. The summing up of all falsehood. In his makeup nothing bui was left out and nothing good was put In, and he Is to be the Oeneral, the Cotummder-ln-Chief of all the forces on the wrong side of the great Armageddon. He has bon in morn battles than you have ever rad about, and he has galnei'. more victories than have vrbeea celebrated in this world. But I guetw this old warrior of I'andemonlum will not have an undisputed field. I guess there will Im an army to dispute with his forces. I have ineutloned the supremacy of this world. I guess our troops will not have to run whn. on the day mentioned in my text, all the Internal batteries shall be unllmbored. Wo have been reviewing the troops diabolic. We have been measuring the calibres of their guns. We have been ex amining their ammunition wasons. Now let us look at thu fortes to be marshalled in the Armageddon on the right side. First of all. I mention the Ite-lments Angelic. Alas! that the subject of demon ology seems better understood than the subject of Rngelology. But the . glorious spirits around th'i throne and all the bright immortals that llll the galleries and levels of the universe are to tuke part in that last great fight, and the ItoKiments Angelio are the only regiments capable of meeting the ltiidrneuts Plutonic To b'jow you some thing ot an angel's power, I ask you to consider that just one of them slow one hundred nnd eighty-live thousand of Sen nacherib's hosts in a night, nnd it is not a tough arithmetical question to solve, if one angel can slay one hundred and eighty-five thousand troops in a night, how manvcau five hundred millions of them BlayV' Tho old Book says that "They excel in strength." It is not a colestial mob, but a dlscipled host, and they know their rank. Chersblm. seraphim, ihrones. rrlncJnall ties and power?. And tne leader of those regiments In Michael the Archangel. David saw Just one group of angels sweep past, ana tney were iwenty tnou9ana ctiarloted. l'nul. who in the Gamaliun college had his faculties so wonderfully developed, con fesses his Incapacity to count them by say ing, "Ye nre come to Mount Zlon and an innumerable company of angels." If each soul on earth has a guardian angel, then there must be sixteen hundred million ungels on earth to-day. Beside that, heaven must be full of angels, those who stay there; not only the twelve angels who, we are told, guard the twelve gates, but those angels who help in the worship, aud go on mission from mansion to mansion, and help to build the hosannas and enthrone the hallelujahs and roll tha doxologies ot the service that never ends. But they all, if re quired, Will be in the lost fight between holiness and sin. Heaven could afford to adjourn, just oue day, and empty all its temples. and mansions, and palaces, and boulevards into that one battle. The next regiments thnt I see marching into the fight will be the Regiments Ecclesi astic. According to the last accounts, and practically only in the beginning of the gos pel movement which proposes to take the whole earth for God, there are four million six hundred thousand Methodists, three million seven hundred and twenty-live thou sand Baptists, one million two hundred and eighty thousand three hundred and thlitv- three Presbyterians, one million two hundred and thirty thousand Lutherans, aud six hundred aud forty thousand Episcopalians, But the present statistics of churches will b utterly swamped when, after all tha great denominations Imve done their best work. the slowest ot all the sects will have more numbers than the present enrollment of all denominations throughout Christendom. see them moviug into the ranks, currying a standard striped nnd starred; striped as sug gesting Him by whose stripes we are hea'e I, and starred as with the promise that 1 hose who turn many to righteousness shall shine as the stars, forever and ever. Into that battle cn our side will roll those mighty engines of uower. the printing presses of Christendom, Into that battle will also move the mlghtest telescopes, that shall bring the stars in their courses to fight for our (iod. Again, the Regiments Elemental will dome into that battle on the right hide. The wiuds! God showed what He could do with them when the splintered timbers of the ships of tho Spanish Armada were tttrewa on the rocks of Scotland, Norway and the Hebrides. The waters! He showod what He could do with them when ne put the whole earth under them, leaving it subaqueous ou hundred and fltty days. The earthquakes! Hebhowed what-He could do with them when Ha let Caracas drop into tha open mouth of horror ana tne islands or tne sea went into entombment. The lightnings! Ha showed what He oould da with them when He wrapped Mount Blnal in flame, and wa have nil seen their flashing lanterns moving with the chariots of the midnight hurricane, All the Regiments Elemental will come in our Mde in the great Armageddon.

Back over the battlements of perdition they go down with Infinite ciash, all the llegl nients Iiiaholic! Back to the mountains and caves tha armed hosts of earth, crying as ihey retreat to the rocks and mountains, "Fall on us and bide us from the face of Him that sitteth upon the throne, and from tho wrnth of tho Lamb, for tha great day of His wrath has ccmo. and who shall be able to stand." And while Apollyon, tha prisoner of war, is being dragged lu chains lo bis duntreon, and our Conqueror is re mounting His throne, I look oh upon tha battlefield, and niuoug the slain I find tha oarcasses of Mohanime IhiiIsiii, an I l'apau Isrn, anl Atheism, and Inll le.ity, and Dis sipation, and Fraud, nnd multitudinous Wrong, s'tewing the plain, aud I hear tha nngulthnt s'iiid-ih iu the fun crying in the words of Revolution, to all the fowls that fly in the midst of heaven the eagles, and the vultures, and the hawks, and the alba trosses "Come Hlid gather yourselves to gether unto tha supp-r of tha prcat God, that ye may eat the llesh of kings, and ths lies 11 of captains, and tne nesn ot mighty men. and tha flesh of horses, and of them that Bit on them." The prophesied Armageddon of the text has been fought, aud Christ and His follow ers have von tha day. The kingdoms of this world hava become the kingdoms of our LorJ and His Christ All the Christian rfurWeis ot our nine. uu, my uearers, aud you, my readers, and all the Christian work era of all the ages, hava helped on tha magnificent result, and the victory ts ours as muoh as theirs. This moment invltiug all outsiders, through the ransomed blood of tho everlasting Covenant, to got into the ranks of the conquerors, aud under the ban ner of our Leader, I shall not close the service with prayer, ns we usually do, but immediately give out the Moravlun Hymn, by James Montgomery, appropriate when written in lHl'j, but more appropriate ia la'JC, and ask you, with full voices, as well aj with grateful hearts, tochautit. Hea Jehovah s banner furl d, Bheathod His sword; He speaks 'tis done And the kingdoms of this world Axe the kingdoms of His Hon- Roastine an Ox. Few of thoso who enjoy n bit of roast Ixt'f at a barbec'io, says the I'os ton Transcript, may previously have had auy I ilea of the prut-ess of roasting tlx? beef. The o Is first split In the brisket anil is dresiied much after the manner of dressing poultry. Wheu rousted on the linni'iise gridiron, ns was done to day, it Is not stufTed with anything, but when roasted by being hung on a "spit" a filling is used. The spit pro cess, irowever, noes not thoroughly cook the beef, nnd the result Is not likely to be so satisfactory as when the gridiron Is used. Before the beef Is placed over tho fire a knife ts thrust Into It In a dozen or more places to a depth of ten or twelve Inches. In the cavities thus made salt, pepper, and other condi ments are placed. The cook finds that this keens all the rich Juices In the meat, and only fat drops out in tho pan under the beef. Every now aud then the meat is basted with a savory sauce. This sauce Is made from the recipe of a famous old French cook, and the secret of Its composition Is carefully guarded. 'When the beef Is rved the ilavor of the juice is espe cially line. The beef rests on ten two- inebiron pipes laid across a pit wlich Is walled with stone much like n cellar. Charcoal is used for fuel, for with this A three-Inch pipe runs through tho length of the body of tho ox, and this pipe is fastened at each end to strong ropes which work on pulleys. By this means the great roast Is raised to be turned over after one tside has been against the lire for some hours. The cooking of the back also Is done In this way. for by tlx ropes tin ox can bo placed in almost any position. It takes four men to raise It In this way, nnd they do It six or seven times dur ing the pi-ocess of cooking. A GREAT TIME. "Did Fisher have a good time on his little outing '" 'Yes, Indeed. J only Raw him for a minute, nnd had no time to ask any ques tions, but I could see that the skin was pi-elinr off frcrr. his nose, his neck was bo sore from the sunburns that he could not wear a collar, his hands were blistered o that, he could hardly use them, and he complained that ha had rowe l the boat until his arms were so lame thnt he couldn't hold a pea. Oh, he unud- have bad a muguiaVcnt time!" KILL AUP'S LL'JTEIi. niii.osoriir.ii maki.s kaunicst ri.r.A rou FAitii;in.Ksioxi:!. f. a Itrsult of a VMt to the Decatur Orphans' Home. Why tlon't gome rich man Riro an endowment to the orphans' home at )t-catur why dmi'l mituebody leave it k good lot of m'noy jn l;jn it BQJ then toon after? And tin re tha orphanago at Clinton, S. C, that right now is on a ttrain to provide fun.l and clothing for tho winter. I am intittSed that if our pood people could visit those- institutions and sro tho children aud realizo their condition, they would help them. It is all r rg L t , of course, for the millionaire to pivo iiiilliong to tho univerMtif b ami colleges, and no provide- cht aj education for the poor; but thero is a clo-s of ln lpl- K, friend less chiLlron scattered over tho laud who will never get to colli de, and who would bo grateful for bread and clothes and nhelter. The dcriptures make no montion of schools or col lege, but tho fatherless are mentioned over and over again, and woo t.il curses ore threatened those who neg lect or oppress them. I have long believed that good peo ple, would give more to charity if they were faco to face with thone who unr. It is not a pleasant business to bunt up tho poor and look upon want and rr.gs and pale faces, but it ought to bo done sometime, even by tho rich and busy people. Tha pood St. James said that true religion was to visit the widow and tho fatherless yes, to visit them. ii win noi uo to ait in tne parlor or counting room and wait till somebody calls for charity. Little orphans cau't come; they don't know the way. Their father is dead or their mother, or both, or perhaps one or the other is in the asylum or down with chronic sickness. It is a pitiful story, and every case is difT-rcnt, but all pitiful. They are all children of misery baptized in tears, I have been ruminating about this.and must write about it, though to mest people it is an unwelcome subject. A few days ago I rodo out to ma orpuans nome near jji- catnr just to see how the children were getting on. Mv pood friend. Robert Hemphill, went with me. He is the business mnn of that buy pa per, lho Constitution, but next to his family his heart's affections are ab sorbed in tho orphans' home. He is tho president of the board, nnd ought to be. lie poe there every few days, and the children smile when ho comes. On tho way wo never talked polities not a word it wns all orphans und the home. I ho farm wagon net us at Decatur and took us out a mile in the country. I didn't mind the rough riding, for it did me good to have my corporosity tumbled up a little; but I did mind getting in and out of that high-swung wngon thot bsd no Beps 1 tried to 'how my activity, but I couldn't, and almost fell down before I got up. For agod orphans like me they ought to have a comfortable car ryall, but Mr. Hemphill tays they naven t got the moneys to buy it, Where is tho carriage man that he don't send one right awny? Mr. Brumby, of Mariett sent six dozen good, strong chairs for the boys building, that has just, Deen completed, .now, where is the big-hearted carriagoman? It is a beautiful building, and will be dedica ted soon; and I've a notion of taking my wife down with me if tho carryall is there ; she can't ride in a road wag on any more. But that building and the girls' building need water plenty of water. There is a little lake of clear spring water not far awav, and Mr. Hemphill says there is fall enough for a water ram, but it will cost about $500 to fix everything and put water in the upper stories but the money is all out. It has taken all to complete the now building. "Where are you going to get the ?" 1 asked. " I have no idea," he said, and he looked distressed; "but I reckon it will come. Three men have given us $500 each with the last twelve months, and I reckon there is one more some where. I know that there are several, if they know how badly we needed it. Then ho told me about what Gorce Muse, Mr. Er Lawshe and Mr. O. V, Gress and others bad done for the home. For about three hours I went about the premises and mingled with the or phane. Some of the boys were digging and wheeling dirt to stop a leak in the dam at the lake. Two had to go after the cows, naif a dojson came trotting down to the barn with their milk buckets. The milch cows marohed to their stalls and the stanchions closed upon them, while the boys sat upon their stools and talked merrily a they drew down the milk from their ud ders. The eldest of these milkers was not more than 12 and the youngest about eight. Near the housp, in the back yard, there were two boys swing ing at the ends of a large rocking churn, and in 20 minutes Ihey bad gathered several pounds of nice yellow butter. I sow the girls washing and ironing iu the laundry, and others preparing the evening meal, of which I wn invited t J nrtitke.
