announced to dullver the following Mr

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
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

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

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
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!

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

White Hair Altared by tha I'aa of
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
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
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
