I never i f ltd ,. ! :iu uiilil the other day, whin n brief i;oM. . in a New York pajHT at tracted tr y j-l tent Ion. For sixty years lio w a musical composer ami a writ er i f mih;;s, He was tho author of i-my (if the sVf(.!tMt piwe that ever '.armed our households, and yet we never heard of him. Fifty years ago My wife used to play, "Como listen to tho moi kingbird," and I accompanied her on the ilute, and was proud of my skill. Then there is "What Is Home Without a Mother" and "Whispering Hope" and "How Sweet Are the Hoses." Ho m ado over 2,000 musical compositions nnd published books of if Et ruction for every kind of musical instrument. After the seven days' fisU before Richmond, McClellan was removed because of his defeat and Ilal leck was put in his place. This dis pleased the soldiers very much, for they were proud of "Little Mac" and loved Mm, and so Winner took up their grievnnco and wrote a song and composed the music, "Give Me Back My Old Commander." The air was imp!o and tho words pathetic, and it t' H)!i was caught by the army of SO, 000 i i u, nnd could bo heard for miles ' r'-' tho lines and in the camps. It was inspiring and significant and made : anton mad. Ho said it was demor I 'lzing rind nn insult to General llal L.ck ami must be stopped, and ho is-r-uod an order to that effect. Of course, t oys stopped tinging in the daytime or on the march, but away in the dead of i:.'.;;ht a whole rer.imcnt. wnni.i hmnv out, "Oh! give us back our old com mander." Then Stanton ordered its publication stopped and threatened to arrest Winner. Rut Winner had sold the copyright and couldn't stop it. A famous singer dared to sing it on tho stage in New York city, and she was warned not to do so any more, but she repeated it, and Stanton had to give it up and let it wear itself out. Winner -wa3 the winner of that fight, and Stan ton made a fool of himself. Stephen Collier Foster was another composer who was very dear to us in his day, and charmed millions with his exrjuisite melody. Wo old-fashioned people still call upon our children to comfort us with "Old Folks at Home," "Uncle Ned," "O, Susannah," "Old Dog Tray," "Nelly Ely" and "My Old Ken tucky Home." The royalty on this last piece, made him a good sura of money. What would the traveling minstrels have done without his songs. Rut in his last years he aspired to a higher plan of composition, and wrote euch beautiful pieces as "Come Where My Love Lies Dreaming." He was a man of fine culture and familiar with many foreign languages. lie, too, is deadj and there has no one come to take; their places as' composers of these feNvtsi fireside songs. Shakespeare says, "Tho evil that men do lives after them. The good is often' interred with their bones." Well, it is often , but not always. Isaac Watts has been dead one hundred and fifty years, ; but his beautiful hymns and his cradle songs are still familiar to every Christian household. "Hush, my dear, lie)still and slumber," has soothed to leep thousands of little children. "Let dogs delight to "bark and bite," s the first little speech of childhoo -.y and next comes "How doth U ' llUje busy bee." The hymn books of a ll Christian churches abound In his beautiful verse, such as "When I Can 'Head My Titles Clear," There Is a Lr-nd of Pure Delight" and While the Lam; Holds Out to Burn, the Vilest f :nr.r-r 11 .y Eoturn."

Rut who knows who planted tlu-m who uesldes myself? And there is my old friend and partner, Judge Rranham, who for twenty five year.; has been working on that beautiful cemetery on Myrtle Hillmaking new walkn and Trading tin m, laying off lota on the purchase, building walls on tho steep slopes, planting trees and flow era and In many ways ornamenting and bcauUfying the city of the dead. Within a few more years ho will bo one or its file' ping citizens and later on anothr generation will frequent the romantic plaeo and wonder who shaped it into beauty, and nobody can' tell. Dr. Johnson said that every man ought to plant a tree or write a book or do something for tho benefit and CN)a.rt of thoso who are to live after io 13 dead. "Our forefathers did much for us," ho said, "and we must pay the debt." Last week our school girl wanted a speech. Her mother and I ransacked the books for one that wr:s short and sweet, and we selected throe or four to chooso from. There was iiirs. Ho man's boauntiful poera on "Death:" "Leaves have their time to fall, And flowers to wither at trip north wind's breath." Then there was part of "The Fish erman's Prayer," by Jean Ingelow, yid "The Last Leaf," by Oliver W. Holmes, which was not so solemn and I liked it the beat It Just fits a m?a I know and I never see him but what I thin?, of those sad and humorous verses. "I saw him once before as he passed by the door And again, The paving stones resound as he tot ters o'er the ground With his cane, And now ho walks the streets and look3 at those he meets, Sad and wan; 1 And he shakes his feeble head and it seems as If he said: "They are gone!" The mossy marble rests on the lips that he has pressed In their loom, And the names he loved to hear have keen carved for many a year On the tomb." Our old man is in his ninetieth year and has seen trouble. He is tall and stooping and steps short and sure. His trlends are all dead, but he goes about with a long cano and looks hard at you when you stop to greet him and then he tries to smile, if he knows you. "When he was in his prime ere the pruning knife of Time Cut him down Not a better man was found by the crier on his round Through the town; But now his nose is thin and It rests upon his chin Like a staff, And a crook is in his back and a mel ancholy crack Is in his laugh." Then the poet repents and says: "I know it Is a sin for me to sit and grin At him here; But his old-fashioned hat and his breeches and all that, Are so queer." And now it becomes me to apologize to the readers of my last letter and tell them that a friend from Augusta has supplied the missing links in my history of the presidents.

You will notice the divine order, power with lod fust and with men afterward. Oh that we mijiht soon learn that the way to influence earth w by the way of heaven. It is a singular question in the text, for in the olden days a name was given not merely to peutify the passinp: whim of the parents, nor for the sake of euphony, but because of charac ter; a man's character was his name and his name was his character. A changed name indicates a elrttngedchnraeter. Abram in the Old Testament is changed to Abra ham an he steps into closer fellowship with Cod. Saul, of Tarsus, became Paul, the npo.itle, alter the heavenly vision. Thou shalt call His name Jesus because lie shall save His people from their sins, and He is Inimanuel, which Ki;nilies. Cod with us. It is a most singular question, "what is thy name?" in the sipht of Cod. He certainly knows what it is. It is said that our names are written on the palms of His hands; that they are also written in the Lamb's Book of Life, but what name? Hardly the name given to you by your mother, but rather the name that you have made for yourself under the direction of Cod, by your patience, by your meek ness, your brotherly kindness. It is a sol emn thought that every act as well ns every word in shaping the character and the name by which Ave shall be known throughout eternity. This story of the change of Jacob's nam h interesting. I do not forget that lid lived 1800 years before Christ, but still it is interesting for the reason that human nature has always been the same. Inter esting, too, because he was a typical Jew. His life was the life of Israel in epitome; that people found in every country and be longing to npne; that people wliich have supplied to us the liveliest religious litera ture and are themselves a by-word, -which have given to us the liveliest ideals in life and are themselves an object of ridicule; that people which have supplied the world's greatest characters, for Paul was a Jew and Je.sus was a Jew. If you under stand Jacob you will understand the Jew always, but while he began as a suppluntcr his ch trader was purified at the last. The furnace was heated seven times hotter than it was wont to be heated, but he corned purified, lie i-vvery much like ourselves, too, and for that reason is interesting. Abraham -was a hero, Moses a great leader of men, Elijah was a prophet, l)avid was a king. All of these men discourage us-with their greatness, but Jacob was a plain man duelling in tents. We find our like ness in Peter in the New Testament, and in this man Jacob in the Old Testament. His feelings appeal to us, for whether we will acknowledge it or not his sins are in us in germ whether we have permitted them to develop or not; his aspirations ap peal to us. Where is there the man who has not had his Bethel, giving him views of heaven and permitting him to hear the voice of God. His sorrows appeal to us; in his limping away from Jabbok's ford, in his sorrow at the lonely grave where his beloved Kachel Was buried, and in his agony over his lost Joseph many of us have the deepest sympathy because we ourselves have suffered, but it is a great comfort at the end to see him coming forth more than conqueror, which leads me to eay that there is hope for every one. I. "What is thy name, and he said Jacob." Look at him by his father's side as he de ceives the old man in his blindness, telling him that he is Esau wdien he is Jacob, and the old father saying to him the voice is the voice of Esau, but the hands do not belong to him. Iiow he must have trem bled. I can see his face get white and hear his heart beat quickly. What if God should strike him dead as he stands in the presence of the old patriarch? In this part of his history I learn that one sin leads to another. We cannot commit a single sin and stop with that. Mv. Spurgeon used to tell of the king who commanded his subject to make a chain o three links, and then told him to make it longer and still longer, and with the chain bound him and cast him into prison. How like unto Satan that is. Graces and vice go with linked hands. No tice in Paul's Epistle to the Galatians con cerning the works of the flesh, Galatians 5: 19-21, "Now the works of the tlesh are manifest, which are these: Adultery, for nication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, idol atry, witkeraft, hatred, variance, emula tions, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, cn vyings, murders, drunkenness, revelings and such like,. of the which I tell you be fore, as I have also told you in time past, that they'which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God." And also notice his description of the fruit of the spirit, Galatians 5: 22-23, "But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, long Fuller ing, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance; against such there is no law." Yet this man who deceived his father and defrauded his brother became a prince. What is thy name? 1 put the question to you, and if vou answer correctly some would say, ''My name is impatience, or mine is unkindness, or mine is selfishness, or mine is pride, for these are the domin ant factors in our character. I bid you take hope this morning becau.se your name may be changed.

What in thy name? and he miht well have said Teacher, for he teaches what discipline really is, and the story of how this man was changed from Jacob to Israel is helpful to us all. It wa.s real spiritual education, but education means to draw out, and you nuLdil draw out from some thing which has been implanted, and that Homethii.g must be the divine nature. lis ripline for the man who is not n Christian is a failure. You will remember when Jacob was nt 1 la ran he began to be discon tented with his lot. and the craftiness of his nature was constantly growing, s-o Cod sent him away from the place, lie had everything a man could want, but. he must, become a wanderer if he would go en to the Israel nature. We doubtless ail of us have learned that tint which is loss for us has been eain for Chri'd, and suf fering is a jrood thing, but it is comforting to know that the hand that ativs the nest is the hand of Christ and the hand that leads out is the one that is pierced by the nails, while the one that goes l el.ire us is the good Shepherd Himself. He will not lead us too far nor suffer ns to be tempted above that we are able to bear. The love of God often means discipline. People or dinarily have low fnou;:hts of love; they only count V.'' love which caresses and sooths and nifkc of itself a shield that no rough wind may blow upon us. They have no notion of a love that can say no, a love that ran use the rod and the scourge and call the object of its power to pass through the lire, and it is interesting to hear the Scripture declare concerning God and Jacob. "Thou are Jacob whom I have loved," vet his life was one long struggle filled with constant disappointment. How ever, it is true that every trial and every disappointment was a step nearer his princely nature. I myself would take every trial he had and every disappoint ment he met, would endure every heart ache if only I might become a prince hav ing power with God and with men. IV. We are neariag the time when his name is to ba changed, llchind him is Laban, before him Esitu, for he is coming nearer to Uim constantly, and he is afraid. Above him is God. He has come to Jabbok's ford, the loneliest place in the Holy Land. One could not easily remain there the night through. He has reached the loneliest hoiii- of tho night; across the Jabbok is his property, his children, his beloved ltaehel, and Jacob was left alone. Around him the profound silence of the desert place, beside iiim the murmur of the brook as it hurries on to the sea, above him the heavens studded tvith stars. This is not an illus tration of Jacob's earnestness in prayer, but rather the earnestness of the angel c the Lord, who would take from Jacob that which is between him and power. Notice first, how Jacob holds on to the angel. It is e marvelous thing how long a man can hold out against God. Some of us b.ve been doing it for years. Notice, second, that the angel touched the hollow of his thigh. Whatever enables a soul to hold out against God lie will toueh. It may be pride, wealth, affection, it may be something natural, as a sinew and as small as a sinew, but He will touch it. 1 can see Jacob struggle in the angel's embrace, nnd then I behold him coming away with a new name; he is Israel, the prince. The way to princeliness is the way of sure surrender. -We must yield ourselves to (bid for power afterward. It is said he called the place Pcniel, for said he, "I have seen God face to face," and as be crossed over Jabbok the sun rose. Doubt less lie felt as if he had never seen it rise before. My dear friend, Mr. B. TL jTadley, the morning after his conversion said as he opened his eyes and looked out of the win dow, "Why.'is this heaven? I have never seen the sun shine like this, and are those the trees of life? for I have never seen trees like these," and yet they were the same trees and it was the same sun that was shining yesterday, but he was looking with the power of a new vision. Oh, may God help us to come to the same expe rience to-day. V. And Jacob went down and met Esau, and then we are told he went over to She ehem. Somebody has said that doubtless his wife might-have said to him. "It is far better for us to live in the city rather than the plain; it will be better for our chil dren, they will become more cultured," and they Went to Slnchem only to make the greatest shipwreck of their home, and they turned away from it after a while with broken hearts, and God said o him. "Arise, and go up to Pethel and dwell there." Christians suffc? J.dritual declina tion for very many reasons, but in this ex pression to-day I have the secret of a re newed consecration. It is necessary in these davs if Christians are to be as they would like to be for them to prav as they used to pray, read the P.ible as they used to read it, yield themselves to God as they did in former times and the old joy will come back with increasing force. If we are to have times of blessing in the days lo come the individual who is the leader of a home must go back to Pethel and lire in his home as lie used to live, and the church must go back to Bethel and be filled with the Spirit of God as she was in other days. But the end has come at last, the scaffolding is taken down from about this wonderful character, life has been a long struggle with him. the last word is snoken, the last command is given, the Jacob look is leaving his face, the Israel nature has gained control. He was a prince indeed. Christ is the needed guide through the devious paths and temptations of this life. He is t kin in the purest aud best sense, to whom we can with g'adness yield our selves. He is the bo- of glory for the plain man, and lie wV possesses that hope , is the strotiiT man.-v. M. 1". Johnson. HYPNOTISM AND MORAL CURLS. II'" r.rnl of I ipfiliMinU In mi In.ui. ' .hilil.

The results of these experi ments wore, it la said, uniformly suc cessful, and no accident of any kind occurred. In ropard to this and other applica tions of hypnotism Dr. Bramwell refers to tho method of Wcttorstrand, who, instead of restricting himself to sug gestions made in the course of a short hypnotic trance, advocated the use of the curative effects of iMolonged hyp notic sleep. etterstrand treated epi lepsy and grave forms of nervous ills order by keeping the patients in tho hypnotic trance for three or four weeks. Without rousing them the pa tients were fed at stated intervals, and the actions of tho bowels and blad der were regulated by suggestion, and thus mental as well as physical rest was given, in addition to such thera peutic advantages as might be gained by aid of suggestion. Dr. Milne Bramwell says that, al though every one cannot be deeply hypnotized, profound states are not necessary for the successful employ ment of suggestion, and the number ol persons insusceptible to some degrea of hypnotic influence is extremely small. Among other diseases he gives the following as those in which hyp notism has given good results: "Hy steria, neurasthenia, dipsomania, and other drug habits, obsessions, moral perversities and nervous tricks In children." We may add that, as far as the treatment of dipsomania is concerned, it seems not entirely im possible that some of the startling re sults which are said to have been ob tained at certain institutions for tho treatment of this condition may havo been tho outcome of an unacknowl edged, but none the less effectual ap plication of hypnotic suggestion. -Lour . don iiospital. Killed for German Solillers. According to a German paper officers of the second grade receiving pay o $1250 per annum are not allowed to marry unless they can show that they have a private annual income of $375. Lieutenants must have an income oC $C25. The officer has also to make a declaration that he is not in debt, and that the lady he proposes to marry is solvent. Private soldiers must have, in addition to their pay, an income of at least $37.50 a year. Should they marry a foreigner they are supposed to have twice that amount, as no foreign young woman could possibly equal a German "hausfrau," in the opinion of the military authorities, in thriftiness and domestic economy.
