Last spring he op posed Mayor Stevens, because he (Stevens), was opposed to the dyami ters. The great big loafer comes too late with his hypocritical cant. UNDsY SERMON greatest The closing week of the religious revival this city has ever known has just been fiuished aud a general summing up of results show that over two thousand people have professed Christ. This seems a large number indeed, possibly not nine tenths of this number will prove their conversion by their daily lives, but if even the other tenth remains true to their convictions, the gain will be worth the striving for. It is easy enough, no doubt, when the better nature of humanity is stirred to its depths by eloquent appeals etc., to feel an exaltation of spirit aud an inner consciousness of rectitude, but the real Christian is the man who knows his dutv to God and does His will in season, and out of season. As has been well said, 4 most anybody can do a thing, they feel like doing, but it takes a true man of God to do a thing, when he doesn't feel like doing it. Ir is easy enough to weep, when Major C le in his graphic way tells of a pathetic deathbed scene anybody cau do that, but the tears that do the most good are thoe shed for duties led undone, kindly deeds neglected, encouraging words left unsaid, conscientious scruples hushed and little dirty dispisable meannesses practiced. It is easy enough to say "I am one of God's children, Praise the Lord' but the prodigal son of the family wants something better than mere husas to convince him that he can be lead back into the fold ; it doesn't require any great amount of Christianity to make people church goers on Sun day, but it does require quite a good deal, to make them carry the spirit f God in their hearts throughout the week ; it isn't great sacrifice for a man to get up at the Y. M. C. A . meetings when he is enthused with music and pretty arguments and say, "I have quit drinking forever hallujah !" but it does take sand for a man, on a cold morning wheu he feels the raw edge of his appetite turning in his stomach, to pass the o familiar saioon, where he has, for years perhaps been in the habit of going and where he knows the liquid, which is now a part of his blood, smiles down at him through a sort of a roseate haze ; it does not demand any great sacrifice of temper, for s woman with a new bonuet on to stand up before that hateful Mrs. Jones and say "I am thine ami He is mine," but it does tough her like the mischief not to talk about Mrs. Jones when she is told by her new girl, who formerly lived with Mrs. Jones, that the latter had frequently called her an "old cat:" it does nut w v . v-v VSj seem a very difficult task for a man who has a good supper buttoned under his ve3t and is sitting in cushioned pew to endorse the words of Christ when He asked, "whajt shall it p ofit a man, if he Srains tkr whole world rA , l. C3 - i " viv tci iubc bis own soul?" But it does take the stiffening right out of him when he sees a glorious opportunity to make an even hundred dollars by merely a little prevarication. Truly it is not what we say so much in this world that proves our every day, commonplace acts. As -the real heroes are found in the bv ways and highways of life, so the real christians are those who say little bm quietly put their hands to the storm sud through sunshine, through joy and through sorrow. The storv is denied that Mrs. s? Langtry is to marry Fred Gebhard. The general public will however worry along with the English chest mi nut just about as usual, mere ar ome evils in this world that aree bound to be endured. LETTER FROM CALIFORNIA. A Plundering Congress. Ne York World. It is a startling fact that the pensiou list of the United States for the cur rent year, amounting to $76,000,000, represents the interest at I per cent, of a public debt of over $2,500,000, 000. The highest point ever reached by this debt was in 1866, wheu it amounted to $2,776,000,000. go that the present charge for pensions, with the Mexican Peusion Bill added, will equal the interest on the maximum war debt at 3 per cent. With the cost of the pauper Pension Bill added, the pension charge will represent the iuterest on a public debt of over $3,000,000,000. And yet the Republicans have the temerity to claim credit for a "great reduction of the public debt V It is a mere juggle ou words. The form only of the public obligation has been chauged. The liability for pensions once voted aud allowed is a continuous one. The obligation is not redeemable at will, nor subject to payment by a s nking fund, like a tunded debt. Itiunson aud on, a mortgage upon the industries of the nation that only the death of the pensioners cancels : and wiih a demagogic Cougress inventing new classes of pensioners faster than the old ones ruu out the list grows instead of diminishing with the lapse of time. The fixed charges against the Treasurv on these accounts stau s thus at present : lnteret ou th funded bbt. alput V'."

It ex ceeds the maximum of our war debt by $1,224,000,000. and overtops the public debt of Great Bpitaiu as follows: Daisei Staif. piincipal sum ...?4,O0fl,00e.f Put.

The total net ordinary expenses of the Government, for all purposes, exclud ing interests, were as fallows in the three vears before the war: 1850, $66,355,950; 1860, $60,056.754 ; l 61, $62,616,055 The (tension list alone already exceeds the average of those three years by $13,000,000. Is it not time to stop? i. ITEMS FROM Central Business College, Seda lia, Mo. Mr. Edward Fleck, city, is now im proving his leisure hours i u the Cen tral Business College. Mr. Flaucis (rovreau of St. Man's W iue Gardeu, Mo , is working hard. Mr. Ferd Boyer, Bloomsdale, Mo., is doing nicely. Wm Madge Sturgis, city, writes a very pretty hand now, and is improv ing very rapidly. Mr. Henry Elliott, city, is a gen tleman in actions if not iu size. Arthur Elliott, city, is doing gool work and is sharp as a tacL. The above names include the new pupils for this week as nearly as we can think of them. If we have for gotten twenty-five or thirty we trust they will pardon us as we are quite ousy to day. Our short-hand class is still increas ing. It has met with success far be yond our expectations. We have never seen pupils so deej.lv interested before in this subject. Short-hand in our school ? proving a grand success. I think every pupil in our class will hi able to write from T25 to 150 words per minute inside of six months. Those . io wish to take short-hand should enter school before our class gets too ML We exercise every . ffort to keep our pupils from getting full, but not so with our short-hand class. The fuller it is, the better for us, but not for their. we are fl.w giving a course of les sons in penmsnshin: all those who wish to take lessoi s in penmanship should enter school now, as they can have more than ordinary attention and very superior advantage. Cyrus Newkirk Expounds the Beauties of the Garden State. San Bernardino; Cala, Feb. L Kdifor Bazoo: I am uuder promise to write to more than I can spare time to, so I will get you to help me out by inserting one in your paper that will answer for all. This place, San Ber nardino, is my first layover an 1 point of observation It is situated at the head of one of the largest valleys iu this state which is some Iweotv rai'es wide and extends down sixty miles to the ocean. The town was originally settled by the mormons and is laid out something like Salt Lake City, has six thousand inhabitants. with wide streets between blocks. It is certainly time if the m rnions are not guided by higher authority than earthly wisdom that the men sent ou4. to hunt out a new home for the Lord's persecuted people, exercised good judgment in pitching their tent in this valley, and especiaHy at this point. To reach th:s place they had to cross a country embracing many hundreds of miles in extent, and in its desolat ed parched aud blackeued appar-aiic- must have appeared to them as ;f i some period off time it n'ust have been under the displeasure of their Heavenly Father and He had sff spread desolation oyer it to de non strate his potter, aud the certain y with whic'i the evildoer is overtaken and punished. They no doubt looked upon this desolation, whatever it raiirht have been lo others for their disobed'e ice to t'lem, truly the Lord's people. It mwfi a blemiag in dguiae and a bar ier t'lat would separate them fro'n t'le'r ouem'es and persons, if the Lord would spare them until escape threaten I no DANGER. I the beach and see an ancient maiden had inst trot the Bazoo tY,.m 1 that has felt rhp home, and was reading about Maj. I of time, contenting herself with her Cole's success with his uuiou services makeup, fresh from the hand of the j in Sedalia, and the number that bad i dressmaker, as she sits on her camo resolved on s change of life, as I went stool listening to what the wild waves I hey iouiid a home lor their peop'e. After wandering over the couutry they struck camp at this puisi. I say they exercised good judgment, fo here t''ey found the most exteusive valley it the state, w , all the VARIETIES OF SOU. KNOWN iu the state, some of it need ing no irrigating to raise sufficient to sustain men aud beat-. witn abundance of pure mouutaio water for kflgatioa aud power for mills aud machinery. u the mountains which surround this city ami valley ou three, sides, there are fine forests of timber now supplying the valley with i;Mberat two-thirds the cost of lumber ii Seda):a. Is this city and suTound:ugs theie are many ifcir c ' ''iteresL and many to be admited. O )t t ie natural cu riosities that meet i'e eye of the stranger, is iu the fo- m o an Indian at row head on i e BKMfStS'Vl side ami on inqu'ry iind i po'.ils to the Hot Springs ri the punt of the airow head. The IsdKsvi I SM i thi a r .w head with supers; on and was placed tfcsjra by the On L Spirit to guide them : the healing waters be low. Durug eir boldiag oostrol of the country, lie medicine meu ol the different tribes made their home here. and all afflicted we.e sent here to lc healed. Tne departure of the red m m did not lessen but as I vil out mi a to-ir of iujecti'n, il he wou d give m a couo'e of eggs aud pepper and salt I woj'u experiment for myself An old Ciliforuiau knows fait well a ten dcr fool, (s new comer), is iuc''ied to be a little incredulous aud they have such confidence iu the possibilities of this country, they are willing to prove everything by a test. So 1 got the eggs and an experimeut proved the water capable of cocking the eggs hard iu five minutes. When I repotted my test and satisfaction, on further inquiry, the landlord told me that he had cooked a fourteen pound ham in four and a-half hours. On looking at the 1 ;oi l in v water ikonrmcr not of - " i . m t f ;he mountain, aud thinking of the are forests ot orange trees uaugtog shakes Iipv hare npro lull ot their golden iruit. contrasting with their rich glossy leaves. The whole gives you but a slight idea of the apearance this avenue presents. When you consider this is not an isolated case, but is con tinued for nine miles without any change other than in taste in arrange- up to the Springs. While there and tramping around on the hot rocks in the canon, watching the water boil through the rocks at my feet aud seeing the the steam and hot air ris ing up, as though escaping from threatening danger. I thought if the Major could see his congregation view ing this scene and have them place their hands on the brow j granite that was holding in check the threatening element within, and realize from the heat how near it was through if they did not arrive at a more serious con clusion, they would certainly think the Major's mission of warniug had not come too soon. They have street railroads here and a tnotr roa.i ruunine from here to Colton, three miles distant, and are going to extend it to Riverside, two miles from here and to the mountain hotel seven miles. So with electric and gas ligh!, they feel as if thev were not in dar kness and without the ususl comforts ot city travel. They have one raihojd here and the grade stakes are being set for ucoiher that will be built throi'h this spring making it an tmportani railroad ceo ter with the shops located heie. Theie are many place uear he e you will hear spoken of by the papers, espec ially real estate journals under the name of Ivead Lands, Coltn and Riverside, they are all near this in plain view aud may be considered suburban. Thev are. however, dis tinct within themselves bv reason of their having an organ iz?. :ou neces sary for their water supply for irriga tion, which is necessary to grow oranges and rdsins which tbey do to perfection. I th'k Riverside is a lit tle vain over her soccers iu frc grow ing and ornamenting her grout -. I think it is hei r ght to be so and I think anv one who will drive through magnolia aveuoev as they can for nine miles and ss the most beautiful and ornamental high wav on tue continent, thev are lo&c in amazement at the magnificent sur ruudinrs. A double driveway di vided bv a ROW OF FEPPER TREE with their green foilage and crimson ed with its red hot fruit, and on either side of the driveways are large palm trees with their graceful hanging leaves, with an occasional magnolia, blue gum and moutain c press, nicely trimmed, intersected to break the monotony and between the trees ate beds of verbenas and other ever blooming plants, hee in a healthy condition. The read ways are in fine d riving condition and i he walks be tween the street, trees and enclosures are level and tree from anv unsigl. dant. The only fence they hure in front is evergreen hedge. It is made of mountain cypress which resembles our led cedar, only it does not die out iu the center wheu closelv trimmed and has s peculiar lint, like the new growth of our red cetlar in early spring. These fences are usually two ssfl a-halt feet high and trimmed iu every conceivable style, the root common is square on the sides and flat on top and two tee: wide, with a portion at regular dis tances running up and ornamentally trimmed, representing posts aud at the opening for entrance, the ever green is trimmed it square column? with a turned top, or arched over with the same nicely tri mined. The dwellings are set back some dis tance and are usually large and orna mentally built and surrounded by large well kept grouads ornameutc I with the most graceful growiug trop ical plants an I alouud in roses and other flowering plants auJ shruh-. botdering the nicely kept walks thiough the grounds. Back of these are saying, and watching her younger ister s sporting with the waves as they break umn the beach, not daring to i don a bathing suit and put herself under the deve'oping influences of an ocean wave. Such is summer life ; here. I have visited other places, among them San Diego. I have not time to speak of that place as it im pressed me. I met Mr. Sloan aud wife, formerly of Sedalia. They were looking well, and I think are doing well, They are pleased with the place aud country. I go from here to Los Angeles in a few days, and then turn homeward by the way of San Francisco, Salt Lake and Denver. Respectfully. C. Nkwkikk. ssi -ssiv BHkfe. .
