Grandmother are more lenient with their children's children than with their own. At forty years, of afro, if disci pline be nepeswury, chastUement is used, but at seventy the grandmother, look ing upon the misbehavior of the grand child, Is apolojjetlo, and disposed to sub stitute confectionery for whip. There is nothing more beautiful than this mel lowing of old aire toward childhood. Urandmothor takes out her pocket handkerchief and wipes her spectaoles and puts them on, and looks down into the faoe of the mischievous and rebel lous descendant, and says: "I don't think he-meant to do it; let him off this time; I'll be responsible for his be havior in the future." My mother, with the seoond ogeneratlon around her a boisterous crew said one day: "I sup pose they ought to be disciplined, but I can't do it. Grandmothers are not fit to bring up ehildren." ' But here, in my text, we have a grandmother of a differ ent hue. I have within a few days been in Je rusalem, where the occurrence of the text took place, and the whole scene ' earn vividly before me ullo I was go- Ing over the site of the ancient temple and climbing the towers of the King's palace. Here in the text it is'old Atha liah, the queenly murderess. She ought to have been honorable. Her father was a King. And yot we And ber plotting for the extermination of the entire royal family, including ber own grandchil dren. The executioners knives are sharpened.. The ..palace is red. with blood of Princes and Princesses. On all idee, re shrieks, and' hands thrown up, and struggle, and death' groan. Mo mercyl Kill! Kill! But while the ivory floors of the palace run with carnage, and the whole land is under the shadow of a great horror, a fleet-footed woman, clergyman's wlto, JohOHheba by name, stealthily approaches the imperial nursery, seises up the grandchild that bad somehow as yet escaped massacre, wrapped it up tenderly but in haste, snuggles It against her, files down the palace stairs, ber heart in her throat lest she be discovered in this Christian abduction. Oct ber out of the way as soon as you can, for she carries a precious burden, even a young King. With this youthful prize she presses into the room of the ancient templo, the church of olden time, unwraps the young King and puts him down, sound asleep as be l-i, and unconitcious of the peril that has been threatened; and there for six years be la secreted in that church apartment. Meanwhile old Athaliah smacks her lips with satisfaction, and thinks that all the royal family are dead. But the six years expire, and it is now time for young Joash to come forth and take the throne, and to push back into disgrace and death old Athaliah. The arrangements are all made for political revolution. The military come and take possession of the temple, swear loy alty to the boy Joash. and stand around for his defense. See tho sharpened a words and the burnished shields! Every thing is ready. Now, Joash, half affrighted at the armed tramp of his defenders, scared at the vociferation of bis admirers, is brought forth In full re galia. Tho scroll of authority is put in his hands, the coronet of government Is put on .his brow, and the people clapped, and waved, and huzzned. and trumpeted. "What is that?" said Athaliah. " What Is that sound over in the temple?" And she flies to toe, and on her way they meet ber and say: "Why, haven't you beard? You thought you bad slain atl they royal family, but Joash has come to light" ' Then the queenly murderess, frantic with rage, grabbed her mantle and tore it to tatters, and cried until she foamed at tbe mouth: "You have no right to crown my grandson. You have no right to take the government from my shoulders. Treason! Treason!" While she stood there crying that, the military started for ber arrest, and she took a short cut through a back door of the temple and ran through the royal suable, but tbe battle axes of the mili tary fell on her in the barn-yard, and for many a day, when tho horses were being unloosed from the chariot, after, drawing out young Joash, the fiery' steeds would sport and rear passing the place, at they smelt the place of tho carnage. ' , ! . i i Tbe first thought -1 band you from this aubjeot ia that tbe extermination of righteousness is an impossibility. When woman is good, sbe is apt to be very good, and when sbe is bad, she is apt to be very bad. and this Athaliah was one: of th,e. latter sort. She would extermi nate the last scion of the iijujof David, through whom Jmui eotaa. There was plenty of woa9r mbalmersand undertaker. Sbe would clear tbe land of all Ood-feariog and God-loving people. She would put an end to every thing that could in anywise Interfere with ber imperial criminality. Hhe folds , her hand and ays: Tho work Is done; it i completely done." It it? In the swaddling clothes of that caarcb apartment are wrapped the cause of Ood, and the eanse of good govern ment That is the scion of the hunt of David; It is Joash, tbe Christian re former; it it Joash, the friend of God; it U Joash, tbe dnroolisher of Kaalitisb Idolatry. Rock hij tendorly; nurse him gently. Athaliah, you may kill all the other children, but you can not kill him. EU-rnal defenses are thrown all around him. and this clergyman's wife, Johosheba, will snatch hint up from the palace nursery, and will run up and doo with him into the houso of tbe Lord, and there she will bide him for ix years, and at the end of that time tie will come forth for your dethrone ment and obliteration. Welt, my frlonds, Just as poor a botch does the world always make of extin guishing righteousness. Superstition rises up and ssys: 'l will just put an end to pure religion. " Domltian tlew forty thousand Christisns. Diocletian alow eight hundred and forty-four thou sand Cbriatlans. And the scythe of persecution has been awung through all the age, and the flames hissed, and the guillotine chopped, and the Bastiln groaned, but. did the foes of Christianity i tertnlntto H? Did they exterminate Alban, tbe first British sacrifice; or Zulaglius. the Swiss reformer; or John Oldcastle, tho Christian noblomso; or Abdallah, the Arabian martyr; or Anne Askew, or Sanders, or Cranmer? Great work of extermination they made of it Just at the time when, tbey thought the bad slain -all the royal family of Jesus, some Joash would spring up and out, . and take the tbjone of power and wield a very scepter of Christian domin ion. ' f " 1 Infidelity savst' "I'll Just exterminate tbe Bible." and the Scrljdures were thrown into the. street for the mob to trample on, and they were piled up in tb publio square and tet on fire, and ovuntajns of Indignant contempt wera hurled on them, and learned universi ties decreed the Bible out of existence. Thomas Paine said: "In my 'Ago of Reason I have annihilated the Script ures. Your Washington is a pusillan imous Christian, but : I -am tho foe of Bibles and of churches. O, how many assaults upon that Wordl All the hostilities that bavo ever boen created on earth ure not to be compared with the hostilities against that one Book: Said one man. In his infidel desperation, to his wife: "You must not be reading that Bible," and he snatched it away from her her. And though In that Bible was a lock of hair of the dead child the only child that God had ever given them he pltchod the book with Its contents into the tire, and stirred it with the tongs, and spat on it, and c lined It, and said: "Susan, never have any more of that, damnable stuff here!" How many Individual and organised attempts have been made to extermi nate that Bible! Have they done it? nave they exterminated the American Bible Society? Have they exterminated the British and Foreign Bible Society? Have they exterminated the thousands Of Christian institutions, whose only object it Is to multiply copies of the Scriptures, and throw them broadcast around tbe world? They have extermi nated until instead of -one or two copies of the Bible in our houses we have eight or ten, and we pile them up in the corners of our Sabbath-school rooms, and send great boxes of them everywhere. If they get on as well as they are now going on in the work of extermination, I- do not know but that our children may live to see the, rollleantum! Yea, if there should come a time of persecution in which all the known Bibles of the earth should be destroyed, all these lamps of light that blaze in our pulpits and in our families extinguished in the vory day that infidelity and sin should be holding a jubilee over the universal ex tinction, there would be in some closet ot-a backwoods church a secreted copy of the Bible, and this Joash of eternal literature would come out and come up and take the throne, and the Athaliah of infidolity and persecution would fly out of tho back door of the palace and drop her iniserablo oarcass under the hoofs of the horses of the King's stables. You can not exterminate Christianity! You can not kill Joash! Tbe second thought I band you from my subject is, that there are opportuni ties in which wo may save royal life. You know that profane history is re pldte with stories of strangled mon arch! and of young Prinuos who have boen put out of the way. Here is the story of a young King saved. How Jo hosheba, the clergyman's wife, must have trombled as she rushed into the imperial nursery and snatched upJoash. Uow she bushed him, lest by his cry he hinder his escape. Fly with him! Je hosboba, you hold in your arms the cause- of God and - good government. Fail, and he Js s!an. Succeed, and you turn the tido of tbe world's history in the right direction. It seems as If be tween that young King and his assas sins there is nothing but the frail arm of a woman. . But why should we spend our time In praising this bravery of ex pedition when God asks tbe same thing of ybd and me? ' All around us are the imperiled children of a great King. They'am born of Almighty parentage, and will come to a throne or a crown, if permitted. But sin, the old Athaliah, goes forth, to the massacre. Murderous temptations aro out for the assassina tion. Valens, the Emperor, was told that tl ere was somebody in bis realm who would usurp his throne, and that tbe name of the man who should be the usurper would begin with the letters T. U. E. O. I)., and the edict went forth from the Emperor's throne: "Kill every body whose name begins with T. H. E. O. D." And hundreds and thou sands were slain, hoping by tbat massa cre to put an end to tbat one usurper. But tin it more terrific in its denuncia tion. It matters not bow you spell your namq, you come under Its knife, under its sword, under . Its doom, unless there be some omnipotent relief brought to the rescue. But, blessed be God, tbore it such a thing as delivering a royal soul. Who will snatch away Joash? This afternoon, in your Sabbath school class, there will be a Prince ol God some one who may yet reign as King forever before tbe tbrone; there will be some one in your class who has a corrupt physical Inheritance; tbere will be some one in your .class who bat a father and mother who do not know bow to pray; there will be some one in your class who it destined to command in church or State some Cromwell tc dissolve a parliament, eorae Beethoven to touch the world's harp strings, soma John Howard to pour fresh air into the lazaretto, tome Florence Nightingale to bandage tbe battle wound, some Miss Dlx to soothe the crazed brain, ' tome John Frederick Oberlln to educate the besotted, tome David Bralnard, to ohangetb Indian!, war whoop to a Sab bath song, tome John Wesley to marshal three-fourths of Christendom, some John Knox to make Queens turn pale, tome Joash to demolish 'Idolatry and strike for tbe Kingdom of Heaven. , There are sleeping in your cradles by night,. there are playing in your nurs eries by day, imperial sou It waiting for dominion, and whichever side' tbe cradle they get out will decide the destiny of empires. ; For, each one of those chil dren tin and holiness contend Athaliah on the one side and "Jehosheba on the pthar. - But I hear people tay: "What's tbe use of bothering children with religious instruction? Let them grow up and choose for tbemtelvca. Don!t interfere with their t vplltlon.w Suppose dome 'one bad laid to Jtbo sheba; . .: "Don't interfere with that young jo tab. Let him grow up and decide whether r be likes the palace or not, whether he wants to be King or not Don't disturb hit volition." Jehosbeba knew right well that unless tbat day the young King was rescued; he would pever be rescued at all. I tell you, my friends, tbe reason we don't reolalm all -our children from worldllness is because we begin too late. Parents watt until their children lie be fore tbey teach them the value of truth. They wait until tbeir children twear before they teach them the Importance of righteous conversation. Tbey wait until tbelr children are all wrapped up in this world before tbey tell them of a better world. Too late ' with your prayers. Too late with your discipline. Too late with your benediction. You put all care upon your children between twelvo and eighteen. Why do you not put the chief care between four and nlne7 It is too late to repair a vessel when It has got out of tbe dry docks. It it - too late to save Joash after the executioners have broken in. May God arm us all for this work of snaWibing royal souls from death to coronation. Can you imagine any sub limer work than this soul-savingl Tbat was what flushed Paul's heek with en thusiasm; that was wbat led Muason to risk bit life amid Bornesian cannibalsi that was what sent Dr. Abel to preach under the consuming skies of China; that was what gre courage to Pbocua in tbe third century. When (he mili tary officers ramn to put him to 4"tb for Christ's sake, be put tbem to bed tbat tbey might rest while he himself went out and in bit pwn garden dug bit grave, and thon came back and said: "I am ready; bgt tbey were shocked at the idea of taking the life of tbeir host He eald: "It is tbe will or God that I should die," and he stood on the margin of bit own grave and they beheaded him. You say it is a mania, a fool hardiness, a fanaticism.' Rather would I call It a glorious self-abnegatUu. tho thrill of eternal satisfaction, tbe plucking of Joslah from death, and raising hltii to coronation. Tbe third tboufiht I hand to you from iuy text U that th church of God Is a good hiding place. lien .lelioshelia rushes into the nursery of the Kimf and picks up .loash, what shall she do n it li him? Shall she take him to home room ill the palace? Mo; for the olllciul desperadoes will hunl through every nook and corner of thai l.uil.lin. Shall she take him to the i esidence of soiuo wealthy citizen'.' No; that cil izen would not dare to harbor the fugitive. Hut she has to tuUe him somen here. Sho hears the cry of the nioli in the streets; she hears tbe shriek of the d.vinjr noliil ity; so sbe rusiies w ith Joash unto the room of the temple, into the house of God. and then she puts him dow n. Sho knows that Athaliah and her wicked assassins will not bother tbe temple a great deal; they are not apt to go very much to chinch, anil so she .sets down Joash in the temple. There he will be hearing the sonys of the worshipers year after year; there he will breathe the odor of the golden censers; in that sacrod spot he will tarry, secreted until the six years have passed, and he come to enthronement. Would God that we were as wise us Jehosheba, and knew that the church of God is the best hiiiiuir place. Perhaps our parents took us there in early days; they snatched us away from Die world and hid us behind the baptismal fonts and amid the Bibles and the psalm books. O, glorious inclosure! We have been breathing bis breath of the golde u censers all the time, and we have seen the lamb on the altar and we have handled the plants which are the pray ers of all saints, and we have dwelt un der the wings of the cherubim. (Jlori ous inclosure! When my father and mother died, and the property was set tled up, there was hardly any tiling left; but they endowed us with a property worth more than any earthly possession, because they bid us in the temple. And when days of temptation have come upon my soul I have gone there for shel ter; and when assaulted of sorrows I have gono there for comfort, and there I mean to live. I want, like .loash, to stay tbere until coronation. I meuu to be buried out of the house of God. 0 men of the world-outside there, be trayed, caricatured and cheated of tho world, why do you not come In through tbe broad, wide-open door of Christian communion? I wish I could act tho part of Jehosheba to-day, and steal you away from your perils-and hide you in the temple. How tow of us appreciate the fact that the church of (iod is a hid ing place. There aro so many people who put the Church at so low a mark tbat they begrudge it every thing, even the few dollars tbey 'g've toward It. They make no sacrifices, Tbey dole a little out of thoir surplusage. They pay tbelr butcher's bill, and tbey pay then landlord, and they pay every body but the Lord, and tbey come in at the lust to pay the Lord in His church, and frow u as they say: "There, Lord, it is; if' you will have it take it now, take it, take it; send me a receipt in-full, and don't bother me toon agalnl" 1 tell you there is not mora than one man out of a thousand tbat appreciates what the church is. Where are the souls that put aside one-tenth for Chris tian institutions one-tenth of their in some? -Where are those who, having put itlde that one-tenth, draw upon it cheer fully? Why, it is pull, and drag, and bold on, and grab, and clutch; and giv ing is an affliction to most people when It ought to be an exhilaration and a rapture. Oh, tbat God would remodel our souls on this subject, and that we might appreciate the houso of God as tbe great refugo. If your children are to come up to lives of vlrtuo and happi ness, tbey will come up under tbe shadow of the church. If tbe church does not get them tho world will. Ah, when vou pass aw ay and It will not be long before you do wbon you pass away it will be a satisfaction to see your children in Christian society. You want to have them sitting at the holy sacraments. You want them min gling in Christian associations. You would like to have them die in tbe sa cred precincts. When you are on your dying bod, and your little ones come up to take your lust word, and you look in to their bewildered faces, you will want to leave them under tho church's bene diction. I don't care bow hard you are, that is so. 1 said to a man of tbe world: "Your son and daughter aro going to join our Church next Sunday. Have you objections?" "1J1ihh you," he said, lections? I wish all my children any longed to tbe Church. I don't attend to those matters my sol f I know I am very wicked but 1 am very glad they are going, and I shall be there to see tbem. I am very glad, sir: I am very glad. I 'want tbem there." And so, though you may have boon wanderers from God, and though you may have sometimes caricatured tbe church of Jesus,- it Is your great desire tbat your sons and daughters should be standing all tbelr lives withlp this sacred Inclos ure. More than that, you yourself will want tbe church for a hiding place when the mortgage is foreclosed, when your daughter, just blooming into woman hood, auddenly clasps ber bands in a slumber tbat knows uo waking, wheu gaunt trouble walks through the parlor, and tbe sitting-room, and tbe dinlng hall, and the nursery, you will want some shelter from the tempest. Ah, some of you have been run upon by mis fortune and trial; wby do you not come Into the shelter? I said to a widowed mother after she had burled her only son months after I said to her: "How do you get along nowadays?" "Oh," she replied, "I get along toler ably well, except when tbe sun shines." I said; "What do you mean by that?" when she said; "I can't bear to see the sun shine; my beart it to dark that all tbe brightness of the natural world seems a mockery to me." O, darkened soul! O, broken hearted man, broken-hearted . woman, why do you not come into the shelter? I swing the door wide open. I swing It from wall to wall. Come In! Come in! You want a place where your troubles shall bo Interpreted, where your bur dens shall le unstrapped, where your tears shall bo wiped aw ay. Church of God, Ix a hiding place to all these people Give them a seat where they can rest thoir weary souls. Flash some light from your chandeliers upon their darkness. With some sooth ing hymn bush their griefs. O, Church of God, gate of Heaven, lot mo go through It! All other institutions are going to fall; but tbe Church of God Its foundation is tho "I!ock of Ages," its charter is for everlasting years, Its keys are held by the universal proprie tor, Its dividend Is Heaven, its president is God!

Curious auit Appalling Freak of Tills Mad den and Unexpected Agent of Iutruo tloll A I'liynlcluii'B imrt ttt a t'hlladelphlu Wuiuau'a Case. Tbe majority of deaths from light ning occurs in the level, open country, trees, villages and thickly built-up towns and cities, by their projections into the air, serving as conductors, and thereby protecting the inhabitants from direct stroke. The loss of life an nually throughout the world Is very great. In European Russia from 1870 to 1877 no less than 2,270 persons were killed by this cause. In Austria during the same time 1,700 persons were like wise killed. Iu Prussia it is reported that seventy persons are annually killed. Ten thousand persons aro report ed as having been struck during a period of nlne-and -twenty years, with deaths in Franco, while in the United States during 1870 alone VJ0J deaths from lightning were recorded. The effects of lightning stroke are most interesting, curious und appalling. The general symptoms are usually of shock. There Is often unconsciousness, sometimes coma, lasting from a few hours to even days; partial or complete loss of sight or bearing, associated with impairment of the other senses. Tbe tissues may bo burned superficially or deeply, tho bones fractured and portions of the limbs torn off entirely. The tracks of lightning on tho surface of tho body may have a fancied resem blance to the branches of a tree, tbe main stems from which the branches lead off arising at any portion of tbe body. The skin in these tracks may ba simply scarlet in color, slightly swellod or blistered, tho branches tapering off until no larger than ' the scratch of a pin. They may pass li all directions from tho place first struck or skip about from one part to another. This is due to tho conduction of the current by tbe clothing, which if wet acts as an excel lent conductor. For the purpose of illustrating these effects the following report of a case It taken from the Philadelphia Medical News, reported by a physician who was on the spot at the time the accident oc curred, Dr. J. B. Paige: "The current struck tbe chimney of the bouse and passod down the studding near tho window to an iron hook on which was suspended a chain and a bird cage, passed from this to the head of tbe lady, sitting just inside the window, and beneath tbe cage, above the left eye, midway between the eyebrow and hair, which was apparently the part nearest the corner of tbe bird oage; passed along in front of the ear, then to the central lino of the chest, descend ing by tbe stocking supporter, which was attachod to tbe corsets; thenoe to the top of the stockings leaving marks upon both limbs, but more espeolally upon the left, on the back of which, just above the knee Joint, was a burn about the size of one's hand. It had the appearanoe of an ordinary burn, and was only superficial. No trace of the ourrent could be detected again until the foot was reached, from which it passed off by the Joint of the great toe, tearing a place about two inches in diameter In the stocking and slipper, but not leaving tbe slightest mark upon the skin.- With tho exception of the burned spot on tho posterior part of the left leg, and one or two small burns on the body and tbe right leg, congested lines alone marked the course of the electricity in Its passage over the body. "Her condition was found to be as follows: Completely unconscious; mo tionless; muscles relaxed; left eye olosed, right eye open;, face purple; pulse at wrist imperceptible; neither heart sounds nor respiratory sounds to be heard. At once artificial breathing was resorted to, and in from two to three min utes the first sign of life appeared In a movement of tbe left leg. The blue color faded from the face and the pulse was felt at the wrist Soon a new train of symp toms set in. There was difficult respir ation. Tbemuous and saliva, which were very abundant, bad gravitated back and could not be swallowed because of com plete paralysis of the pharynx, etc. There was, in fact, paralysis of almost all tho muscles of the uppermost parts of the body, including the arms. The symptoms wore those exhibited by an animal when being asphxlated; violent musoular contraction; difilcult and forced respiration, etc. Under con tinued efforts consciousness returned In three-quarters of an hour. A period of four weeks elapsed before all the senses and her general health were re stored and all paralysis had disappeared. In this, according to the St Louis Globe-Democrat, do w4 see the effect of lightning in a pronounced degree, and there can be no doubt but tbat this per son would have died from tbe effects if tbe physician had not boen present to at once resort to artificial or forced respir ation and wrap the body to maintain tho heat necessary for life. TURNS HAIR BLACK. Evan White Hair Altared by tha I'aa of Jaburandl. Dr. Prentiss has related to the Lon don Times a remarkable occurrence fol lowing the use of jaborandl. The pa tient was a woman aged Tl, who had snow-white hair for twenty years. For the symptoms of commencing urutml, due to contracted kidney, 20 or 80 minims of extract of jaborandl was pre scribed several times dally. The drug was tken from Gotober, 1880, to February," 1H88.' During tbe autumn of 1887 tbe eyebrows were be coming darker, and the hair of tbe head became also darker in. patches. This continued until tho patches of hair were quite dark, contrasting with tho natural patches of snow-white hair. Tho hair did not universally change beforo ber death. In 1881 Dr. Prentiss bad published another case of kidney disease pyelo nephritis treated with pilo-carpiue. The hair of the patient, a lady aged twenty-five, changed from lijjht blonde to black under the influence of the drug. The pilo-carpine was administered hypodermically (one-sixth of a grain) twenty-two times iu the course of two months; tho dose was then increased. In ono month after commencing the. treatment tho hairchanged from u light blonde io a chestnut brown; four months later It was "almost a pure black." It is satisfactory to find that eight yi-ari afterward the hair is arain a dark brown. Dr. Prentiss ascribes the phenomenon to tho jaborandl and Its active principle, pilo-carpine. Cases where, as tho result of the influence of the nervous system, in pain or fright, tho hair has changed color, are pathological curiosities. So little is known, however, of the physio logical lnflucnco of tho nervous system over the growth aud nutrition of hair, that It Is at present iii.lto Impossible to understand how a drug administered In ternally can alter the color of tho hair. It would be interesting to learn from other practitioners who bavo used Jabo randl or pilo-carpine for an extended period whether any cbaugu in tbeoolor of hair has boen nououil Ifa (lira Hlinvelf Away.
