The senate has passed the house bill without amendment which proposes to amend the act of 1890 in regard to for feited railroad lands so as to allow pur chasers under that act to purchase th same anv time before Jan. 1, 1809. The bill affects particularly the lands within the grant of the Northern Pacific rail road forfeited by the act of Sept. 29, 1890. Thk senate committee on irterstate commerce has agreed to report the anti sealninff bill with a favorable recom mendatioD, but it is very doubtful it nafisna cnnirreEB this session. The bill e as finally put int shape, has great men in the interests of the public, and from the tons of petitions that are going there is no measure in this congress that is so loudly demanded. It oughfto pass with little delay, though the lobby azainst it is working tooth and toenail The J'b have it by a large majority in the Cabinet of President McKmley, thus far arranged: J.

McCook.a double J, Attorney-General, and J. H. Wilson is Secretary of Agriculture. In fact, the only non-J who intrudes into this Cabinet of J's is R. A. Alger, Secretary of War, and his surname, by the nrav. should be sounded with the g soft, or like j. The split in the Populist party be tween the Watson and Butler factions is not the only fracture which is in it but this 18 wide and extended enough to show that the party is in a shaky con dition. Probably the Populist name will never again figure in a Presidential election. The Populist is going the way of the numerous other parties which appeal to a class. None of them ever had any real vitality. The Populist party has already lasted longer than any body four or five years ago expected. It did one good work it helped to divert the people of the south from war issues and prejudices, and thus prepared the way fer a break in the partisan solidity of that region. This was the only bene ficent service which the Populists ever rendered to the country. A MEErnra of the Populist press of the nation held its annual session at Memphis. Tenn., last week. Paul Van dervoort, president of the association called the meeting to order and deliver ed an address in which he roasted the Damocracy in strong language, and an nouncedltbat in 1900 there will be no sell out of the People's party to free sit ver Democrats. The real middle of the road PoDuhsta hate Democracy much worse now than before the last election They feel as President Vandervoort ays that last year's campaign "was a shrewd move to save the Democratic party, and retain control of the solid south. He says the "cbect of the union waa two fold to resurrect a corpse and bury the People's party in the place of its putrid remains." He said the People s party will never make another cam paign on the silver issue. The amount of the greenbacks held in the treasury goes down as the amount of its gold goes up. That is, the govern ment is getting the coin in exchange for the paper, but the trouble at present is that the stock of paper money in its hands is getting low. When, as is the case now, all sorts of currency are likely to be held permanently up to the gold line, everybody prefers the paper. An immediate and sweeping change was made in the situation by the result on November 3. Gold, .has been going to the treasury in a continuous stream ever since. The reserve is at a higher figure than baa bees touched (in any previous time in seven years. If the election had gone .the other way the gold stream would flow from the treasury, instead of toward it, and a heavy bond sale or a drop to the silver basis would probably have taken place before this time. The "Silver Republican" party whose national committee is to meet in Chic ago next June for the purpose of calling a national convention of all persons who will oo operate with it "until the great monetary issue is settled right," has a wrong name. There is an irrepressible conflict between the front and and the back end of the designation. Nobody can be a silverite that is, a free ceiner and a Republican at the same time. The St. Louis convention made this distinc tion so plain that the wayfaring man, though a fool, will not make any mis take about it. Teller, Cannon and other silver men put their "O. K." on the convention's definition of Repub licanism when they bolted the party. Every man whose name has been men tioned in connection with this so called "Silver Republican" gathering support ed Bryan, and they still stick to the Bryan platform. These facts establish their partisan status. Don't allow the lungs to be impaired by the continuous irritation of a cough. It is easier to prevent consumption than to cure it.

Sermon Delivered at the II. 2. church Oregon, Mo., Sunday February 28th, 1897, by the Pastor, Bev. Henry Crampton. Text: Galatians. Chapter 3 J, verse 27 For as many of you as have been bap tized into Christ, Imve put on Christ Baptism, or the use of water as a reli gious rite, was instituted in the church of God for thjt purpose of imparting to the worshiper u conception of a spiritua fact, namely moral purity. All ideas of spiritual truths communi cated to man were first associated with material objects, hence the whole Lavit ical economy was a system of education to inculcate spiritual ideas or concep tions, in the minds of the people under its instruction. Under this system water was used as thn symbol of purity and intended to be emblematical of the work of the Holy Spirit by whose agency this purity was to be wrought in the soul man. Thf t it was so understood we invite attention to David's language found i the 51st Pna., 7 verse: "Purge me with hyssop and I shall be clean, wash me and I shall be whiter than snow."' David's reference is to the water of separation applied to the unclean person The water was taken irom a running brook, mixed with the ashes of a red heifer burnt without the camp, and then applied with hyssop and wool to the per son of nne who had been made ceremon tally unclean by contact with a dead body. David speaking by inspiration sets forth the spiritual signification of the act. That this interpretation is correct we invite attention to several references in the new testament. Hebrews,9th Chap. 13-J4. For if th blood of bulls and of goats and the ash es of an heifer sprinkling the unclean sonctifieth to the puiifyicg of the flesh How much more shall the blood of Christ, purge your conscience from dead works, etc. In the 9 and 10 verses, same chapter, we read concerning these purifications "Which was a figure for the time then present that could not make him that did the eervice perfect, as pertaining to the conscience. Which stood only meats and drink, nnd divers washings and carnal ordinances, imposed on them until the time of reformation." In He brews, Cth Chnp.2 verse, the Apostle calls these "divers washings" "doctrines baptisms." The original word is the same rendered In one place "washings" and in the other "baptisms." That is accord ing to the plain import of the language quoted, the use of water under the law was called in New Testament times,in the language used by Christ and the Apos tles, baptism. In Mark, 7 Chap., 4 verse, reference is made to the ceremonial purification as practiced by the Jews in Christ's day, "Then came together unto him the Pharisees nnd certain of the scribes which came from Jerusalem." "And when they caw his disciples eat with defiled, that is to say unwashen hands, they found fault For the Pharisees and nil the Jews, except they wash their hands oft, eat not, holding the tradition of the elders. And when they come from the mar ket, except they wash, they eat not And many other things there be, which they have received to hold, as the wash ing of cups and pots and brazen vessels, and of tables." The words here rendered wash and washing in the Greek are baptize and baptizing. This practice no doubt perversion of the original doctrine and practice of ceremonial purification, was the subject about which the disciples of John and some of the Jews disputed, John 3-25. "Then there arose a ques- tion between eome'of John's disciples and the Jews about purifying. And they came unto John, and said unto him, "Rabbi, he that was with thee beyond Jordan to whom thou bearest witness, behold, the same baptizetb and all men come unto him." The language indicates that they un derstood the baptism practiced by the disciples of John and Christ was a puri fication. The water pots of stone mentioned in connection with the marriage of Cana, John 2-0, were usnd to hold the water with which they purified themselves. The point we make in referring to these incidents, is to show that baptism and nurifyiDg were understood as ene and the same in New Testament times, Beware ofOintments lor Catarrh that Contain Mercury, as mercury will surely destroy the sense of smell and completely derange the whole system when entering it threugb th mucous surface. Shch articles should never be used except on prescrip tions from reputable physicians, as the damage they will do is ten fold to the good you can posssibly derive rrom them. Hall's Cata'rh tmre, manufac tured by F. J. Cheney & Co., Toledo, O. contains no mercury, and is taken in ternally, acting directly upon the blood and mucous surfaces of the system. .In buying Hall's Catarrh Cure be sure you get the genuine. It is taken internally and is made in Toledo, Ohio, by F. J. Cheney fc Co. Testimonials free. Sold by Druggists, price 75c. per bottle. and the same words in the original, are used to discribe both. As further proof that water was used to represent the work of the Holy Spirit we invite attention toEzekiel,3G-24-23 and 26. "For I will take you from among the heathen, and gather you out of all countries and will bring you in to your own land." "Then will I sprinkle clean water upon you and ye shall be clean from all your filthiness and from all your idols will I cleanse you. A new heart will I give you nnd a new spirit will I put within you." It is evident that the prophet is refer ring to New Testament times. Similar language is found in Jer., 31-33. and the Apostle in Hebrews, 7 and 10, quotes it asrefering to the Gobpel dispensation. We know that a little clean water sprinkled on a person will not make them clean, but clean water does repre sent purity and here the prophet asso ciales it with the Jloly Spirit as express ive of the work of the Spirit in man. We next turn to Joho's baptism. We should remember that John found bap tism in vogue among the Jews, I mean by this, water used as a ceremonial cleansing. John's ministry was under the law. "The law and the prophets were untill John." Among them that were born of women there hath not risen a greater prophet than John the Baptist says the Savior. John then was in the line of the Old Testament prophets and they ended with him. He also was n Priest ns was his father before him. John used water as a ceremonial cleansing, and his words prove this clear ly we think, "I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance he shall baptize you with the Holy Spirit. The prophet Malachi, chapter 3-l-2,and 3 referring to John thus speaks of him: "But who may abide the day of his coming, and who shall stand when he appeareth, for he shall sit as a refiner and purifier of silver nnd he shall purify the eons of Levi and purge them as gold and silver. John says of Christ, "and he shall thoroughly purge his floor. Some hue taken the position that the baptism of fire referred to the judgments of God or hell fire. To me such an interpretation seems far-fetched and all out of harmony with the subject of John's discourse, for all who received his baptism by water were to be the subjects of the baptism of "the Holy Spirit and fire. Luke 3-lo. "And as the people were in expectation, and all men mused in their hearts of John, whether he were the Christ or not, John answered I indeed baptize with water, he shall baptize you with the Holy Spirit add fire It ia the property of fire to purify to refine, just as it is that of water to clease." Christ quotes John's words as having their fulfillment oo the day of Pentecost Act l-o. "For John truly baptized with water, but ye shall be baptized with the Holy Spirit not many days hence." Also Act 1 1-15 1G 17 and Acts 15 8 9. Baptism being an outward sign of a spiritual work it may precede, ac company or follow remission of sins. On the day of Penetecost when Peter hud preached, and they were pricked to the heart and cried out: "Men and breth ren, what shall we do?" He said unto them: "Repent every one of you in the name of Jbeub Christ for the remission of sins and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit." Eight years after. Acts 10 31-48, when be preached to the first Gentileswho were received into Christian fellowship, while he was speaking these words, "unto him give all their prophets witness, that through his name, whosoever believetb in him shall receive remission of sins, while Peter yet spake these words the Holy Spirit fell on all them that heard the word." And those that were with him were astonished because that on the Gentiles also was poured out the gift of the Holy Spirit. "Then answered Peter, can any man for bid nature, that these should not bap tized which have received the Holy Spirit ob well as we?" On the day of Pentecost they were commanded to be baptized, "and ye shall receiye.'The Gentiles were to he baptized because they bad received a reversal of the order. And as theGo9pel sinue has been principally preached to the Geitiles if either of these examples i to be fol lowed as a precedent it would seem the latter, should be the one. Baptism is also, we believe, a eal of a covenant engagement between GoJ and man. God engages himself to fulfill hie promises to us, nnd we promise or ex press a promise in the net of baptism to fulfill the obligations of a Christian life. Hence the idea of obligation to a service to be rendered because associated with the term baptism where the outward form or rite was wholly wanting, thie fact we will endeavor to prove to every j unpredjudiced mind. Luke, 3-10-14 in elusive. "And the people asked him saying what shall we do?" He anBwerethand saith unto them, "he that hath two coats, let him impart to him that hath none; and he that bath meat, let him do likewise. Then came also publicans to be baptized, and said unto him, master what shall we do?" And he said unto them: "ixact no more than that which is appointed you." Thus we see John the Baptist obligated those who came to bis baptism to re pentance and a righteous life. Also in the baptism to Chr.st there is recognition of this thought. When John objected to baptizing him, Christ an- swered, "suffer it to be so now, for thus it becometh to ub to fulfill all righteous ness." Matt 3-15. Christ in this act publically assumed all the obligations imposed by the law, and those taken upon himself as the world's redeemer. Farther on in hismin- try we hear him excla;in: "I have a bap tism to be baptized with and bow am I straitened until it be accomplished?" This expression we believe comprehend ed his whole life's work, embracing his death resurrection and ascension to the right hand of his Father. Again. Matt. 20 Chap. 2-23: Then came to him the mother of Zebedee'ti children They are so small that the most sen sitive persons take tbem, they are so effective that the most obstinBte cases of constipation, headache and- torpid liver yield to them.

Notice our Savior makes a clear ditt Unction between the cup and tha bap tism. The cup represented hia softer ings and the baptism soiuethiiigelse.aud and the words plainly indicate that he wan then undergoing the baptism. The baptism was present, the cup future. In Romans. tithCnap. l-KJ. in fact, the entire chapter, tin idea of ohbgation to a righteous and holy life made possible by the dea'h ttl Chrirt is di elided and represented by n variety of figures and terms. The interpretation usually given of this Scripture is that the Apn.fle repre sent baptism as a burial, hence winner -sinn to carry out this ligure. We think this to b" a forced interpretation and dor s. violence to correct Scriptural ex egesis, in th it it givt-tt a literal interpre tation to one ver?eor part of a veree in order to pn.ve a reci nceived and un proven point and Dpiritu ihze the other part or the next or prei eding verse n hen it will nor support or surt'iin thoir por tion. Who is authorized ti say that the "being buried by tnptism into death," is the immersion of thn phicil body into water, and the bping united iu the likeness of of hn des.th." (not IniriHl) and the crucifixion of tho old man." "The destruction of tht b idy of sin" leing "dead to sin." i something ple. When all lhe?e tprm and evprsions are pred icate 1 or t'l1 pnra person. If the "burial" is ht-ral and applies to the body why not th Vrucitixion" anil the "death?" The Apostle in the latter part of llieiith chapter, speaks of the abundance of the provision of mlvition thriuth Jesus Christ, so that, "Where sin abounded gnre did much more abound." isow, lest mere might De n perversion or hbu-e if this glorious truth, he ask the question contained in the hrst verse of thetith chapt r. "Whit shall we say then, .-hall we continue in sin that grace may abound. To paraphrase this verse it would read as follows: if the gr.ice of God is so abundant, so that where din abounded grace did much more auound, then the more we sin, th more grace shall we rc ive. To this the Apostle replies: "God forbid, how shall we that are dead to sin live any longer therein?" To be dead means separated from. "Know ye uot that so many of us as were (margin are) baptized into Jesu Christ, were baptized into his death." This oaptism is a recognition of and participation in the benefits of Christ's death. For what purpose did Christ die? "He died the just for the unjust." Whogave himself for ua that he might redeem us from ull iniquity, aud pu. ify unto him Belt a peculiar people. "Therefore we are buried," (present tense) (a condition uow experienced) by baptism into death." Herd tue Apostld places the burial and baptism iu the I elation of cause an effect. Tne burial is effected by th baptism, they are not one ana the same, it would uut do to say immersed by im mersion or baptized by baptism. the burial effecttd by the baptism and is "into the death of Christ." Know yo not thai to many of us as were (or are in margin) baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into ins death. Therefore ttid dtatn of Christ is the grave or cover ing and not water. The term buried expresses a condition past, present, continuous. We say a man was buried last week. We understand from tne language he was dead, still re mains in that condition. Was buried and continues buried. tj the Apostle in those scriptures ex presses not a momentary act, but a con tinuous experience, lieing buried with Christ, aud dead with Christ, (Coll. 3-3) menus one and the same. lint why does the Apostle use the terms "IjaptiMn"' and "baptize," does he here refer to their baptism by au ad ininislralor when they made profession of faith in Christ? We think not. It is no inure neuoseary to suppose this then thai Christ referred to his baptism by John, when he Baid: "I have a bap tism to be baptized with." "Can ye be baptized with the baptism that I am baptized with? We think the idea of consecration or devotion, obliga tion to a life or service had become asso ciated with theje terms nnd they com preh jude the sum of all Cunstian duty and privilege. To illustrate, the cross originally was an ipstrumeul uf punishment and death, but in process of time, there came to be associated with the word service, self denial, a life given to Christ. "If any man will come after me let him deny himself take up his cross and follow me. I Jin writes. iou loroiu mat i should glory, tave in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ by whom the world is crucified unto me and I unto the world." Who for a moment suppose? thai Cbriet or Paul had reference to a literal cross of wood? And why should we believe the Apos tie refers to water baptism in the Gti of Romans, any more than, he refers to fleshly circumcision in Coll., 2 Chap,, 11 verse, "In whom ye are circumcised with the circumcision m.tde without hands, in pulling off the body of the sins of the flesh by the circumcision of Christ?

Address THE NATIONAL HUMANE ALLIANCE, 410-111 United Charities Building, N.J. light on this subject: "Moreover brethren I vould not tnat ye should be ignorant, ho that all our fathers were under the cloud, and all passed through tbe se t. And were al! bapliztd unto Moses in the cloud and in the -a. And did all eat the same spintsa! meat. And did all drink tbe same spiritual drink; for they all drank ef thnt Spirit ual Rock ttal followed them, ao.l that Rock waa C inst." You will observe they were all b.ipti' zed unto Mos or into, the prepoeitioo in Grek is the erae as when we are said to be "baptized into Christ. That is they recogmzml ami accepted Mosee as thiir leader nnd commniiler. he was their mediator, and in this reaped waa a type of Christ. I'hoy obligate,! themielvea toub.y him. Tbey were all baptized. They did all e.it aaJ nil d rank. "But with many (not all) God waa not pleased. They broke their covenant en ga ;enient, hence the Apoetlea Marns us by their exa uple. Now in tin baptism .if Nrael at the Red Sea. 1 do nt think there wttt any application of water in any form. t wan not even thought of then as a baptism , or forcentune after, not until tbe tde of obligation or devotion to a per eon or service, bc.ime connected with the word baptize. As to lieing a type of immersion the historical facts are clearly against this view. The theory of the cloud restincon the waters and the Israelite:' pageing through a tunnel vanishes away when ue read that while the ho-ts crossed over the cloud was in their re.ir and w.,h I'ght unto them and darkness unto the B.'vp tiaos, and then they "crossed over .try ahxl." They were baptized but not im mersed. Their foe attempting to folio v. were overwhelmed with water, but u n baptized. We think it plain why the scriptures So often mention b.iplism, not because of a form or mode, but because of whal it represents nnd the obligations im posed, reci'tznizpd. and assumed by I he subject. Tbe mode amounts to but little. The fulfillment of tir nblitfatior.H ns the pro fesfed follower o Christ is all import ant, yen eentiul to Salvation. Our government chtcB but little for the manner of a cnldier's enlistment, whether he taken tl.eoath of enlistment, standing i r eitting, with a blue coat or a gray one on. It does caie whether he proves to be a good eoldier, obedient to his comman der, that he endures hardship, stands firm in the presence of danger, never bleeps at his post of duty. If he is loyal in nil these respects the country is satis tied and never asks a question as to the manner of his enlistment. Our Quaker friends reject water bap tfom. Tbey conscientiously believe it, with all Jewish rites fo have ceased, and the baptism of the Holy Spirit to be the "Oae and enly baptism of the Gospel dispensation. God accepts them, tbey give abundant evidence of this by righteous and holy living, triumphant dying. Why this? evidently because while they reject the outward form.the symbol, tbey possess and enjoy the grace signi fied. Assume and carry out the obliga tion of baptism by faithful and devoted livea to the Blessed Master. Do we believe we are better than they becaute we have been baptized in the name of Christ, according to a cerUiu form, which we belieye ia the only true apostolic mode and reckon all unbap tized who have not complied with this rite according to our corn-option of it? Thn words uf the Apostle to 'he Jews at Phillippi will rightly apply here: "For we nre the circumcision which worship God in the Spirit and rejoice in Jesus Chritt and put no confidence in the Hesb." So we are the baptized mho with pure intention to do God's will, no matter as to the mode uf the outward rite, have assumed and are endeavoring to carry out the obligations of our profession by a godly walk and conversation. Paul wrote to the brethren ia his day: "Neither circumcision nor uncircum cision avaiieth anything, but ana v crea tion." Remember circumcision among the Jews waa a positive institution or duty, yet it bad a spiritual signification. "Cir cumcision verily protiteth if thou keep the law, but if thou break the law, thy circumcision is made uncircumcision. For he is a Jew which is one inwardly and circumcision is that uf the heart and cot in the letter, whose praise is not of men but of God. In conclusion, baptism verily profiteth if we have an intejligent understanding of the truth intended to be represented by it. Recognize, assume, and faithful ly carry out the obligations growing out of our relation to Christ. Otherwise it is of no profit, no matter how, when, where, or by whom baptized. Vhat use is there in eating when food does you no good in fact, when it does you more harm than good, for such is tbe esse if it is not digested? If you have a loathing for food there is no use of forcing it down, for it will not be digested. You mutt restore the digestive organs to their natural strength and caute the food to be di gested, when an appetite will come, and with it a relish for food. The tired, languid feeling will give place to vigor anl enegry; then you will put flesh on your bones and become strong. The Shaker Digestive Cordial as made' by the Mount Lebancn Shatt ers contains food nlready digested and ia a digester of food as well. Its action is prompt and its effects permanent. Doctors prescribe Luxol because it has all the virtues of Castor Oil and is palatable. That tbe bugar trum is a conspiracy against tie people's welfare was learned many years ago, and the investigation which is being carried on by the com mittee of the New York legiislature has not made any startling revelations on this point. It ha thrown some new light, thowever, on trubt methods and spirit. It has shown that a grocery dealer whs forced out of business be cause he refused to sell trust sugar at as high a price as the trust fixed, and that tbe profits of the refiners have largely increased since the trust was formed. At the same time it has brought out an insolence on the part f the trust magnates, and a definance of the law and of the people's, interests which leg islatures and congresses can not safely overlook.
