Madison's wife, Dol jjy Payne, was a widow Todd. Her f jialdcn name was Dorothy Coles. I ( 'eckon we will get this matter btrai;:htened out after awhile. Mr. Thaxton, of Tennessee, writes me that tho full list of mothers and wives can be found in the "World Almanac" of 1894. Friend Thaxton is not mad, but he ia grieved that I said Johnson's parents were too poor and ignorant to bo named in the biography. That was not my assertion, but was a bit p. f sarcasm on the compiler, who Wmakes special mention of their pover ty and lack of education and records that Andrew and his mother and step father moved from Raleigh, N. C, tD Greenville, Tenn., In a two-wheeled cart drawn by a blind pony, but doe3 not give their names. Mr. Thaxton says his wife's father was an own cousin to Andrew Johnson and An drew's mother's name was Mary Mc Donough, but he does not mention the "r-tepfather. Who did Mary marry the :.econd time? The biography in Ap pleton was written by James Phelan, editor of The Memphis Avalanche, and seems to be very fair and favora ble to Johnson and his wife and chil dren. It says that Johnson's father died when Andrew was only four years old and Mr. Thaxton says his mother had many more children. Mr. pylan says that Andrew learned his .kphabet on the tailor's bench, and his wife, Eliza McCardle, taught him to read. My friend Thaxton says that he did not know that poverty and igno ra "se were tied together. As a gen ?ral rule they are. That second hus f band must have been both shiftless and Ignorant if he couldn't provide any better transportation for his wife and stepson than a two wheel cart and a blind pony for a long journey. If Mr. Thaxton was to see such a caval cade as that coming down the big road now he would say that poverty and ignorance were tramping along to- lether. But this much we have learn Md from Mr. Thaxton that Andrew Johnson's mother's maiden name was Mary McDonough. All honor to him who rose from 'poverty and obscurity and all honor, to his devoted wife and to his accomplished daughter, Mrs. Patterson,3' who presided so worthily ii the white house. , And Roosevelt married twice 'that's right! He ought to have a Vgood woman at his elbow all of the time. I reckon he must have been a widower when he wrote those slanders against Jefferson Davis and the peo ple ofj&e south.

They were afraid. The pamphlet to which I have heretofore alluded is now ready. It contains Henry R. Jackson's great speech on the "Wanderer" and Daniel Webster's speech at Capon Springs, Va., the last and greatest he ever made. There is also a brief biography of General Jackson by Joe Brown and a few remarks by myselt. There is enough in this little pamphlet to establish the faith and stimulate the pride of every southern man. According to Jackson, the south was not responsible for slav ery, and according to Webster we were justified in seceding. And so the northern saints were in the wrong for violating the constitution and pre cipitating that most unrighteous war, and ought to make apology ana resti tution to us. They owe to our people millions and billions of dollars. They owe to me right now $20,000 damages, and if Roosevelt don't retract and apologize, I think I will attach his trunks and his bear guns when he comes in reach.

He wished to find out how long it would take to belt the planet with a dvspnteh under ordinary con ditions of cabls workings. His brief sentence .was forwarded without any mark of nrccicy o:- any suggestion of exceptional speed, jntl it was accepted subject to delay a id without prefer ence over the cttrrer.t handling of busi ness. Tim trial did not re:-.n!t in any surprising achievement. TJore than thirty-nine hours passed before the citizen of the Hub of the Universe got back the words which he had address ed to himself beneath the seas of both hemispheres, statrs the New York Tri bune. That wa3 not amazing speed. No doubt the cables will far surpass that feeble, halting- gait when every thing is improved by practice and ad justment. Puck said he could put a girdle around the globe in forty min ntes. Possibly be never did it. But the cable companies ought not to re quire forty hours for the transmission of a few words from Boston and back again a circuit of only twenty 5 ve thousand miles or thereabouts, t preach, for in the very thon-lit of heaven you would bo almost overwhelmed. I have road descriptions of cities both in ancient and modern time., hut never Biich a de poriplion as thi.s; adorned like a bride for her husband; a city in which there is neither McknoKs nor sorrow, death nor cry inft; a city of walls and gates; on the cast three pates, on the west three gates, on the fouth three gates, on the north three eatos. and the walls had twelve founda- tionrs. and in thcin tho names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb. The angel that made the revelation had a golden rod in his hand with which ho was measuring the city, and found that tho length was equal to the breadth, and that the wall was 114 cubits; that the building of tho wall was of jasper; that the city was pure gold, and that the twelve gates were twelve pearls. It is said that they were wide open by day there is no night there, and in that city there was no 'iced of the sun, for the glorv of the Lord did lighten it, and the Lamb wns the lis?ht thereof. It comes to me like an inspiration that one day I shall enter that city. Can you say it? Your children are going in, your parents are going in, your husband is going it, your wife is going in; are you going in? It is a great joy to know that tho things that bring us the representations of heaven are so substantial. Some people toll us that heaven is a state, not a place. What then did Christ mean wdien He said, "I go to prepare a place for vou." and what again when He said, "In My Father's house there are nianv mansions?" 'What is the doctrine of the resurrection? Is it that only the spirits of men are raised? This is not our teaching. There must be pome place for the resurrected body. When Chri.st went out. with His apostles to Beth any and a cloud received Him out of their sight, He arose bodily from their presence. It is certain, absolutely certain, that heav en is a pV.ce. Perhaps some may question, at first, the meaning of the text, and yet I am very sure if we only had the nvnd of the Spirit we would find in it much of beauty, sweet ness and power. WHAT IS HEAVEN? It is a place of overpowering brightness. Everything thr.t ever came from thence tells us so. Chariots so bne't that the only thing to which they could be likened was fire. Angels with faces shining so that men must veil their eves before thetn. Mwes and Elias so surrounded with glory that the three disciples were overcome with the vision on the mount of transtig nration. The walls are like a great jewel, the streets of pure gold and every single gate a pearl. You know the brightness ot one little gem as it sparkles on your finzer. but U! the wondcrhil thought that every gate is a pearl, and the day will come when we may go sweeping through the gates if we will. God has done everything that He could do and our entering in now rests upon ourselves. But the brightness et heaven, aside irom the presence oi Christ, is not due to the gates, nor to the walls, nor to tho streets, but to the pres ence of those who have been redeemed. I have been told that the deeper the water the larger the pearl. Whether that be true or not i can not tell, but l Know that from the greatest depths God some times takes His brightest; jewels, it is no cause for discouragement if you have been n o-rent. sinner. Paul was a persecutor, Punyan a blasphemer, Newton a libertine, end yet they shine to-day as the jewels of Christ. Geologists tell us that the diamond 13 onlv crystallized carbon, charcoal Riorihed, This book tells ps something better than that, that "though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though thev be red like crimson, they shall be as wool." Heaven is a place of unutterable sweet ness. Can you imagine toe number oi lit tle children there? Can any one describe the sweetness of a child's song? And wdicn vou remember that your own little one may be there! liat wonderful emg in. it is as their lips are touched by the finger of Ch'-ist, and their hearts are thrilled with His presence. "0, the joys that are there mortal eye hath not seen, 0, the somis they sing there with hosan- nas between, O, the thrice hlesjcd song of the Lamb and of Moses, O, the wdiitc tents of peace where the rapt soal reposes, O, the waters so still and the pastures so green, .

GATKS OF PEARL: I am sure that there is some meaning in the fact that the gates are of pearl. Do vou know the history of nearls? Unmanly sneakmg it is a hl-.torv of sufierin?. W hen discovered it is at the risk of tne pearl fisher's life. It is said that pearls are formed bv the intrusion of some foreign substance' between tho mantel of the mol lusl: and its shell. This is a source of irri tation, suffering and pain, and a substance bout, that which is m- . ne... - , , ,1... iL. truded to prevent sullering, ana uius 1 n ncarl is formed. Ho you begin to see the eienifioaiiOO of the fact that tho gates are of pearl, and not of gold? There was a time when there was no entrance into heaven for us; sin had closed it: man had prievously Sinned, tie had broken every bw of Cod. and there was no hope for him it nil. Then it was that the Babe was cra dled in tlm manger, became a youth, grew to manhood, endured thirtv-three years of suffering, culminating in the agony upon Calvary, when in the tremendous tension His heart broke. Then it was Ho died, the just for the unjust, the innocent for the guilty; then it was that Tie arose from the dead, went out unto TVthany, ascended into heaven to swing wide open the gales. And thus it is they are open to-day. and one never hoars of the gates of pearl hut he must realise in some measure what sal vation cost, not so much to you and to me, hut to Him humiliation, sorrow, suffer ing, death, and do you realize that every one who refuses allegiance to Hindis ar raved against Him, for He said. "You arc cither for Me or against Me, mere is 110 middle ground ?" TWELVE C5ATES. How full tho word of God is! In its teaching bcautv and sweetness come from it with everv 'touch. It is a rock; you can not touch it but tho water of lite will come forth. It is a llower; you can not come near it without being blessed by its fragrance. There is something to me even in the number of heaven's gates. The twelve gates were twelve penr.s, three on everv side, and the city licth four sqimre. Is this not an indication that Cod has made abundant provision for our entrance into tho city above? It is man who has narrowed down the way. The Ihhle invi tation is, ''Whosoever will, let him come.' Tho provision is abundant. No one can stand at the judgment and say anything hut Luis, "Lord, T might have entered, but I would not." Twelve gates, and if you are not in it, it is your fault alone. Cod has done all that He could do. The Trin ity has been exhausted, almost, on a sinful world, and He will do no more ; it is for us our.selvcs to choose to enter in, it is very easy to he saved. In .one of the schools of a great city by the fVllincr of a transom a cry of fire was started. The children were panic-stricken, 'td the teachers as well. In rushing from the building many were injured ; some were killed. When it was found that the alarm was false, returning to her room one of the teachers found sitting at her desk a young girl who had not stirred. W hen asked the reason for her bravcnes, she said. "My father is a fireman, and he toM me if ever there was an alarm of fire "1 (ho building just to sit still whore I was and he would save me. My father is a fire man and he knows, and I iut trusted liim." That confidence in Jesus Christ would bring salvation. Said a man in Clorgow to a dtmgnished evan.reli.5t, "I am yerv ,mious to be saved": what, must I t'.i?" The evangelist quoted many p."s?agosf Perm hi re to fiim, a. . 'long them John ii' lo: "for Cod so loved' tho world that HeVave His onlv he gotten Fon that wl.os'.Acr believe) h in Him," and when he had cW,o this far the man slopped turn, saying, iiut 1 00 i lieve." Then the evangelist quoted the sixth chanter of John and the forty-sev enth verse, Christ's own words; "Verily, verilv. I pay unto vou, he that heJicveth 011 Ma hath everlasting life." The man saw it in a moment and cried out rejoic ing, "I have got it, I have got it." That kind of acceptance of Cod brings everlast ing life. Twelve gates, and every gate a pearl, and every eate exactly alike, so af ter all there is only one way. THE GATES ARE OTEX. I am so glad f.hat the gates are open to day.
