(ieori;e Duf- field, the third of that name prom inent in the ministry of the Pres byterian church The pathetic or gin of the hymn centers about Rev. Dudley A. Tyng, an Bpiseo- paliati clergyman. About 1857 he withdrew from the rectorute of the Bpipbany chureh of Philadelphia because of a controversy with his vestry. Together with those who followed him he organized the Church of the Covenant, meeting in a public hull. His liberal views and active work aloug interdenom inational lines drew to him many of the ministers of Philadelphia, among these Hcv . tieorge Dufiield. author of our hymn. This associ ation was made much closer thro' the celebrated revival belt! in Jayne's Hall, during 1857-185H. Ou Tuesday, April 13, 1858, Mr. Tyng went to bis country home, near tbc city. Fatting the npek of a mule running a tread mill for shelling corn, his robe became eu tangled in the machinery, tearing one arm from the body. On the following Saturday he died friitn the injury received. On this last day of bis life, asked if be bad any message 10 semi to nis teiiow min isters, be answered, "Tell them all to stand up for .lesus." This mes sage made a deep impression upon his co-workers und were quoted at the funeral services ns bis dying message by several. On the following Sunday, He v.

Two stanzas of bis poem, the second mid fifth, as originally writ ten, are usually omitted in hymn books. These are as follows: stanil up, stanil up for Joaui, Tun s., lentil watehworil hear.

PICTURESQUE, BUT UNSAFE. Thst is Cart Schurz's Opinion of Pres ident Roosevelt. In u letter to James W. 1'ryor, General Secretary of the Parker In dependent Clubs, Carl Schurz, who knows what imperialism is and what it means from personal expe rience, und whose sincerity for re publican government and institution-, cannot be nuestioued, severely takes to task the purposes of the Republican party ami President RoOSjevelt's instability. Among other thiugs be has the following to say of Mr. Roosevelt's uusafe nese : President Roosevelt is an exceed ing interesting, picturesque and forcible character, who would have found a most congenial aud glori ous iield of action at the timu ol the Crusades, but sometimes strangely tails to appreciate the higher moral aims of modern civi lization. He is a patriotic man, who has done very good service in several ways, and, being still young, is capable of doing much more iu various important positions, aside from the presidency. His is a master nature, but this Kapuhlic does not want in the presidency a master least of all one who can not master himself. To re-elaot him, and thereby to make bim understand, as he most certainly would understand it, that the American people are immenaelj delighted with all he has said and done under the inspiration of his StrenUOUa tendencies, that they simply yearn for more of it, and that to this end they put into bis hand the great power of the pres idency, including the supreme com mand of the army mid a big navy, with all the temptation.-, and possi bilities of such power, so that bia ambition to regulate the world ac cording to bis notion! may have full swing this, I humbly submit, would be so baiardoua a venture that cltar headed und sober mind ed Americans may well, for their country's sake, shrink from the risk. The alternative is the election of the Democratic candidate, Judge Parker. 1 do not indulge in till slightest delusion as lo the Demo cratic party. I know its faults and shortcomings cry well, and 1 have opposed it often. But I be lieve that, if put iu power, under present circumstances, it can do the country a very important service, partly of n negative, partly of a positive kind. Of course, I do not expect the millennium; but l think we may well expect that it will put B stop to the strenuous pyrotech nics which for some years have distracted us, and bring the Repub lic back to the sober ways of con scientious, constitutional and legal government; that it will arrest the existing lavislmess of public ex penditures and introduce a whole some economy into our govern ment household; that it will thor- Oghly overhaul tbc various gov ernment departments, which is nil the more necessary, as the recent investigations of corrupt practices in the postal service have onlv scratched the surface, and us fur ther investigations by the Ropub- ican party "in its own good tiuie and its own way" are not promis ing substantial results; that it will scale down our enormous and uu necessary expenditures for the army and navy to a figure answering the real needs of the country: that it will stmt a vigorous movement against the extortions and corrup tions of our tariff system; and thut it will do awny with our utterly un democratic, financially wasteful aud politically demoralizing colon ial policy, thus restoring to their old dignity tbo principles upon which this Republic was founded, and reviving the popular reverence for our great traditions which forms the conservative influence so much needed by our domocracj in short, that it will reverse in all thest' things the principal tendencies of tho present administration.

Death of New Yotk's Philanthropic Bak er and Friend of the Poor. laiuis Fit iscliiiian , the philan thropist baker of New York, died on the 25th ult., aged sixty-four years. He established on Christ mas, 178, what was called the "Bread Line" in the distribution oi all unsold bread from his numer oils bakeries. This custom is still in vogue, and during the winter a rap of coffee is served to the ap plicants for bread . The following description is given of u scene at his bakery the Sun day night after his death i Down the "bread line" in front of Grace Church, Broadway, Btrotching In single file for three blocks, word was passed Sunday night that the benefaol or of the hungry, Louis Flciseh in, um. wns dead.

There was an awkward shuffling of feel nii'i a husky clearing of throats by those who were touched to the iniok by the news and knew not how tu express the sorrow that lilled their hearts. No more slonnenl tribute to the memory ol a philanthropist could be possible than thut expressed by narrow ranks standing patient out under the sky.

It looks like he has remembered us after he is gone, don't it!" Aye, it does! " came a chorus from a score of throats. It whs ten years ago that Mr. FleiSChmBD formed the "bread line."

CITY DRUG STORE. 'Words sre Good Under date of August uo, Mr. Roosevelt wrote to lieu. Boynton, representing tbc army of the Cum berland, u letter in which he paid high tribute to the services of the volunteer soldiery during the civil war, lidding 'In any great crisis of war this nation must rely mainly on its vol iintcHi soldiery, and the veterans of the civil war have left Us for ever the model of what such a soldiery should be. We of the younger generation owe you a debt greater than wc can ever pay, Hlike iu the lessons von taught us iu war, aud for the lessons you taught iu peace. Mr. Roosevelt seems to have become suddenly impressed with the importance of the part the vol unteer soldiery plays. During the Spanish-American war, under date of Santiago, July 25, lH'JH, Mr. Roosevelt sent to Secretary of War Alger, the following letter: "We earnestly hope you will send most of the regulars aud at any rate the cavalry division, including the Rough Riders, who nrti good as any regulars and three times as good us uuv state troops, to Porto Rico. There are 1,800 effective men in this division, If those who were Ml behind were joined to them, we could land at Porto Riuo iu this cavalry division close to 4, (K)ii men who would be worth, eas ily, any 10,000 national guards, armed With black powder, Spring fields, or other archaic weapons." Secretary Alger under date of Washington, August 4, 18'IS, Hont by cable the following reply: "Col. Theodore Roosevelt, San lingo: i our letter or the 3d is received. The regular Briny, the volunteer army, and the Hough Ri ders have done well, but I suggest tiiat unices you want to spoil the effects and glory of your victory, you make no invidious compari sons. The Rough Riders am no better than other volunteers. They had an advantage iu their arms, .1 L . , ior which nicy ougni to ne very grateful. R. A. Alger, Secretary or War." Mr. Roosevelt seems now to bt greatly impressed because of the debt that we of the younger gen cration owe to the men who. on land and on sen, proved their de votion to theil country. But, without niBking, to use Mr Alger s term, invidious compari sons, we cannot Torget that this mi i i . . same i iieouore itoosevelt lost no opportunity to administer snubs to Admiral Dewey, the hero of Manil la buy. We can not forget that this same Iheodore Roosevelt un dertook to place the brand of cow ardiee upon Admiral Schlev, the hero of Santiago bay.
