De Witt Taluiagw was greeted by u Urge congregation, tha first Sunday that ht preached In the Brooklyn Academy of Music. Tna subject of his discourse was, "The House on the Walt." Dr. Tal niage tixk . for bis text Joshua 1. S8: 'And the . young men that were spies went In and brought out Rahab, and her father, and her mother, mad all that she hud." lie said: When only a few weeks ago I visited Jerloho, I said. Can it ho pofwlble that this dilapidated place Is the Jericho that Mark Antony gave as a wedding present to Cleopatra? Where are the groves of palm trees? Where are Herod's palaces that once stood her? Where is the great theater from the stage of which Salome told the pcoplo, that Herod- was dead?.- Where is the sycamore tree on helinbof which Zaocheus sat when Jesus passed tbix place?. Where Is the wreck 'of the walls that fell at the blow ing of the ram's horn?- Rut the fact that all these had disappeared did not hinder me from seeing In Imagination the smash of every thing on the fated day, save one house on the wall. That scene centuries airo comes back to me as though it were yesterday. ' ; " There Is a vory sick and sad bouse in the elty of Joricbo. What is the mat ter? Is It poverty? No. . Worse that that Is It leprosy? No. Worse than that Is it death? No. Worse than that. A daughter has forsaken borne. By what infernal plot she was Induced, to leave I know not. but tbey look In vain for her return. Sometimes tbey bear a footstep very much like her and they start up and say: "She comes," but only to sink back a train into disappoint mentjAJast Alas! The father si U by the honr, with his faco in bis hands, saying not one word. The mother's, hair Is becoming gray too fast and she is be ginning to stoop so that thoso who saw her a little while ago in the street know bar not now as she passes. The brothers' clinch .their fists, swearing.' vengeance against the despoiler ol their home. Alas! will tho poor soul never come back? ,r . Thero is a long, deep shadow ovor all the household. AJdod to this there is an Invading army six miles away, just over the river, coming on to destroy the Rltyi and what with the Ions of their shlld and the coming on of thatdostruct iva army, I think the old people wished that they could die. That is the first scene in- this' drama of tho Bible. In a house on the wall of the elty Is ' that dsughter. . That Is bar home now. Two spies bava come from the invading army to . look around through Jericho and see bow best it may be- taken. Yonder Is the lost child. In that dwelling on the wall of the city. The pollco hear of it, and soon there is the shuffling of feet all around, about the door, end the city government demands the surrender of those two spies. First, Rahab (or that was the name of the lost child first, Rahab secretes tho two aplos and goto their pursuers off the track; but after awhile she says to them: "I will makes bargain with you. 1 will save your life If yon .will save my life, and the life of ny father and my mother, and my broth ra and my slaters, when .the victorious army comes upon the city." O, she had not forgotten her home yet, you see. The wapderer novor forgets home. Her heart breaks now as she thinks of how he hat maltreated hf.r parents, and she wishes she were back with them again, and she wishes she could get away from her sinful enthrallmnnt; and sometimes he looks op In the fsce of the midnight, bursting into ogonfeing tears. No sooner have these two spies promised to save ber life and the life of ber father and mother and brothers and sisters than Bahab takes a scarlet cord and tie It around , the body of one of the spies,' brings 'him to the window and as be clambers out nervous lest she bave not strength to hold him with muscular arms, suob as woman seldom has, she lets htm down, hand over hand, in safety to the ground. Not being exhausted sbo ties the cord around the other spy, brings him to the window, and Just as successfully lets him dawn.' to tho around. No sooner bave these men untied the scarlet cord from their bodies than tbey look up and they says ;-. . ,;.;. ' ' "You bad better get all your friends la this bouse your father, your mother, your brother and your sisters. You had better get them In this house. And then, after you have ytbem here, take thta red cord which you bave put around onr bodies and tlo it across the window; and when our victorious army comet op and aeea that scarlet thread In the win dow, they will spare this house and all who aro la it." "Shall it be so?" cried the Bple ;i"Aye, yo," said Rahab from the window "It shall b so."- That is the second scene In this liible drama. There Is a knock at the door of the old man. He looks up, and says: "Come la," and lo! there is Rahab, the lost child; but she has no time to talk. They gather in excitement around her,, and she says to them: "Get ready quickly, and go with me to ray bouse. - The army la coming! Tho trumpet! Make hastel Fly! The enemy:" That is the third scene in the Kible drumu. The hosts of Israel are all around about, the doomed city of Jericho.' 'rash!" goes the great metropolis, heaps on heaps. The air suffocating with the dust, and horrible with the screams of .a dying city. All the houses flat down. All the people dead. Ah. no, no! On a crag of the wall the only piece of the wall lft standing there Is a bouse which we must enter. There is w family there that bave been spuria. no are thny? Let us go and sco. Rahab, her father, her mother, her brothers, her sisters. 11 safe, and the only housa left stand ing In all tho city. What saved them? Was tho bouso more firmly built? O, mtr. It was built In the most perilous place on the wall; and the wall was the first thlug that felL . Was It because her character was any' better than any of the othor population 'of the city? O, no. Why, then, was she pared and all her household? Can you tall ma why? O, It was the scarlet line la tha window. My friends, there aro foes coming Bp on as. more deadly and more tremen dous, to overthrow our Im mortal Interests. They will trample us down and crush ne out forever, unless there be some skill ful mode of rescuo open. The police of death already begin to clamor for our surrender; but. blessed be Uod. there la a way out. ft; 'is through the window, and by rope so saturated with the blood of the cross that H U as red aa that with which the spies were lowered; and If once our nouls shall be delivered,, then, the scarlot cord stretched across ' the window of our escape, we may defy 11 bombardment, earthly and Satanic. la the " first place, carrying out the Idea of my text, we must stretch this scarlet 6ord across the window of our resona. There comes a time when a man Is surroundod. What is that in the front door of his soul? It Is the threatening of the future. What Is that in the back door of his soul? It Is the sins of the neat. He can not fret out of either of those doorways. If he attempts it be ertll U cut to piece. What thall bedo? Ksespe through the window f o' mercy. That sunshine has heon pour ing In for many a day. Cod's inviting mercy. God's pardoning mercy. God's all conquering mercy. God's everlasting mercy. But, you say, tho window is so high. Ah, there is a rope, the vory ono with which the cross and its victim were lifted. That was strong enough to hold Christ, and it is strong enough to hold you. Hear all your weight upon it, all your hopes for Ibis life, all your hopes for the life that Is to come. Escape now through the window. "Hut," you say, "that cord is too small to save me; that salvation will not do at all for such a sinner as 1 have been." I suppose that the rope with which Rahab let the two spies to the ground was not thick enough; but they took that oi nothing. And, my dear brother, that Is your alternative. There Is only one snurlnt line that can lave you. Thert have been hundreds aud ihoiiMii!tJ Mho have been borne away in safety by that scarlet line, and it will bear you away in safety. Do you notice what a very narrow escape those spies bad? I sup pose they came with flustered cheeks and excited heart. Thoy bad a very narrow escape. Tbey went In the broad door of sin; but bow did thoy come out? Tbey came out of the window. They went up by the stairs of stone; they came down on a slender thread. And so, my friends, we go easily and una bashedly into sin, and all the doors are open; but If we get out at all It will bo by being let down over precipices, wrig gling and helpless, the strong grip above keeping us from .being dashed to pieces on the rocks beneath. ' It is easy to get Into sin, young man. It is not so easy to get out of it. A young man goes to the marble coun ter of a hotel. He asks for a brandy smash called so, I suppose, because it smasties the man that takes It. There is no intoxication In it. As the young man receives it he does not seem to be at all excited. It does not give any glossiness to the eye., He walks home in beauti ful apparel, and all his prospects are brilliant That drink Ja not going to destroy him, but It Is the first step on a bad road. Years have passed on, and I see that young man after be bas gone the whole length of dissipation. It Is mid night, and he is in a hotel perhaps the very one where he took the firstdrink. A delirium is on him. ' lie rises from the bod and comes to the window and it is easily lifted; so he lifts 1U Then he pushes Ixiok the blinds and puts his foot on the window silt. ' Then bo gives one spring, and the watchman finds his dis figured body, unrecognizable, on the pavement.- O, ffhe had only waited a little If he bad come down on the scar let ladder that Jesus holds from the wall for him, and for you, and for me; but no, he made one jump and wti gone. And when I sea the temptations that are about us In all countries, and when I know the proclivities to Bin that are in every man'a - heart-1 so that if any of us escape it will be a very narrow esoape. O, If we have, my friends, got off from our sin. let us tie the. scarlet thread by which we have been saved across the window. Let us do It in praise of Him whose blood dyed It tbat color. Let It he In announcement of the fact tbat we shall no more be fatally assaulted. Still further, we must .Hake this red cord of the text and stretch it across the window of our households. When the Israelitlsh army came up against Jeri cho, they said: "What is that In the window?" Some one said: "That Is a scarlot line." "O," said some one else, "that must be the house that was to be spared. Don't touch it" That line was thick enough to save Rahab, 'her father, her mother, her brothers and ber sisters i the entire family." Have our house holds as good protection? You have bolts on the front door, and on the back, and fastenings on the window, and per haps burglar alarms, and perhaps an especial watchman blowing his whistle at midnight before your dwelling; but all that can not protect your household. Is there , on our bouse the sign of a Saviour's sacrifice and mercy? Is there a scarlet line in the window? Have your children-been consecrated to Christ? Have you been washed in the blood of the atonement? In what room do you bave family prayers? Show me where you., have been accustomed to kneel. The sky Is black with the com ing deluge.'- Is your family insido or outside ot tbe ark? It is a sad thing for a man to reject Christ, but to lie down in the night of sin, across the path to Heaven, so tbat his family come up and trip over him tbat Is terrific It is a. sad thing for a mother to reject Christ but to gather ber family around her and then take them by the band and lead tbem out Into tho paths of worldll ncss, away from God and Heaven, alas alas! There may be geranium and cactut In that family window and upholsters hovering over It and childish faces look ing out of it but there is no scarlet thread streUhed across it Althwugb that bouse may seem to be on tbe best street in all the town or city it is really on the edge of a marsh across whioh sweep most !olsonous malarias, and It has a sandy foundation and Its splendor will oome down and great will bo the fall ot It A home. ; without - Uod. A 'preyerlees father! Aa undevout mother! Awful! awful) Will you keep on, my brother, on tbe wrong road, and take your loved ones with you 7. Tim Is so short that we can not waste any of It on apologies. or indirections, or circumlocutions. Yon owe to your children, O father, O mother, ,, more than ' fixxV more than clothing,--more than abetter you owe them tbe example of a prayerful, coose o rated, pronounced out and out Chris tian life. , You can not afford to keep It away from them. Now, as I stand here, you do not see any hands outstretched toward ma, and yet tlWre are bands on my brow and hands on both iny shoulders. They are hands of parental .benedlotton.. J, It is quite a good many years ago now since we folded thoso hands as they began the lust sleep on the banks vf tbe Rarltan iu thavlllogo cemetery; but those hands are stretched out toward me to-day, and they are just as warm and they are just as gentle as when I sat on her knee at five years of age. And 1 shall never shake off those bands. I do not want to. They have helped, "m so much a thou sand times Veady, and I do not expect to hi. ii a trouble or trial between this and Bijr grave where those hands will not help me. It was not a very splendid home as the world calls It; but we bad a family lllblo there, well worn by tender perusal; and there was a family altar Ihere, whero we knelt morning and "night; and there was a holy Sabbath there; and stretched in a straight line or bung in loops or festoons, there was a scarlet line In the window. O the tender, precious, blessed mem ory of a Christian horuel Is that the Impression .you are making upon your children? When you are dead and It will not be long In-fore you are when you are dead, will your child say: "If tberb ever was a good Christian father mine was one If tbcre ever was a good Christian mother, mine was one?" Still further: We want this scarlet lino of the text drawn across the win dow of our prospects. I see Rahab and ber father and her mother, and her brothers and sisters looking outover Jer icho, tbe city of palm trees, and across the river, and over at tbe army lnvad Ing, and then up to tbe mountains and the sky. Mind you. this bouse was on the wall, and 1 suppose the prospect from the window must havo been very wide. Beside that I do not think that the scarlet line at all inter fered with .the view of the land scape. The assurance It gave of safety must have added to the beauty of tbe country. To-d;ty, my friends, we alt in the window of earthly prospects and we look off toward the hills of Heaven and the landscape of eternal beauty Uod has opened the window for us and we biok out. e now only get a dim outline of the luhubitants. We now on1 httre n.l there cii. t, n note of the exquisite hariuouy. Hut blessed he Cod for this scarlet lino in the window. That tells mo that the blood of Christ bought that home for a soul, and 1 shall no there when my j work is done. Ami us I put my hand on J that scarlet line very thing In the future brightens. My eyesight gets bet ! ter, and the robes of ih- victors ! are more lustrous, uud our loved ones who went uuiiy smut- time ago they il" . not stand .tny more with their backs to us; but their faces are this way ami their voices drop through tills Salihath air. saying, with ' all tenderness and sw eet ncss: "t'ome! . Come! Come!" And the child that you think of as buried why. there she is, and it is May day in Heaven; and they I gather the amaranth, and they pluck ! the lilies, and they twist them into a garland lor hor brow, and she is one of the May queens of Heaven. O, do you think they could see our waving to-day? If from tills window -of earthly pros pects we can almost. see them, then from their towers of light i think they can fully see us. And so I wave them the glory, and 1 wave them the joy, and I say: "Have you got through with all your tron hies?" mid their voices answer: "God hath willed away all tears from our eyes." 1 say: "Is it as grand up there as you thought it would be?" and the voices answer: "ICye hath not seen nor ear beard, neither hath it entered Into the heart of man the things which God hath prepared for those who love Him." I say: "!o you have any more struggle for bread?" uud they answer: "We hunger no more." And I say: "Havo you been out to lh cemetery of the golden city?" and they answer: "There Is no death here." And I look out through tho heavens, and 1 say: "Where do you get your lights from nights, and what do you burn in the temple?" and they answer: "Thero is no night here, and we .have no need of candle or of star." And I say: "What Book do you sing out of?" and they answer: "The Hallelujah Chorus." And 1 say: "In the splendor and magnificence of the city, don't you ever got lost?" and they answer: "The Lamb which is in the midst of tho throne leadeth us to living fountains of water." O, how near they seem. Their wings do you not bear them? And all that through the window of our earthly pros pects, across which stretches the scarlet line, lie that my choice color forever. Is It too glaring for you? Do you llko the blue because It reminds you of the sky, or the green bocnuso It makes you thUk or the foliage, or the black bocause It has In it the shadow of tbenighl? 1 lake the scarlet because it shall make iuo think of the price tbat wan paid for my soul. . 0, the blood! the blood! the blood of the Lamb of God that taketh away the sin of the world. I soo where you are. You are at tho cross roads. The next step de cides every thing. Pause before you tako It, but do not pause too long. I hear tho blast of tho trumpet that wakes the dead. Look out! Look out! Kor In tbat day, and in our closing moment on earth, better than any other defense or barricade, however high or broad or Stupendous, will ! one little, thlu, scar let thread in the window. LOVE'S QUEER -FLIGHTS. The Modest Request Which a Girl Hade of Her Adorer. I The sun was slowly sinking behind' the western horizen. It wasn't a nioe thing for the sun to do, says the Phila delphia American, but it was doing it just the same. The gathering twilight failed to conceal two young persona seated on a sofa in a Frankford house. I They were Mary Jenkins and George ' Augustus Jones. Twilight deepened into dark night, and still they sat there, the adorer and the adored. George Augustus looked up Into the lovely face, and what did he see? He saw two eyes that sparkled as the stars are wont to sparkle in tho heavens. He saw two cheeks, two sweet, dimpled cheeks, over whioh dainty blushes played hide and seek, . lie saw a mouth whose rose bud lips resembled the half-opened petals of some fair flower. j George Augustus could stand It no longer. In a moment he held her In his mad, passionate embrace. Then, and only then, did the fair girl speak. "Ueorge,' sne said. "Well, dearest?" "Cheese It" "What do you mean?" he gasped. "Get off tho grass, that's all." He got In other ' words, bo dlscnclrcled his arm from her waist A minute of painful silence ensued, during which tho eyes of the girl wan dered restlessly to and from a peculiar porcelain urn which stood on the table. Finally she spoke. "Qeorge," she said, "will you do me a favor?" "Do you a favor!" he cried, with fervor. "There ia nothing I would not do for you. For your sweet sake I would do battle with two thousand demons, aye, even though each demon was fol lowed by myriads of other demons. For you I would gladly go through fire and water. For you I would scale Alpine heights or descond into hellish depths. For you I would give my very life. Speak, angel! What wilt thou have ma do?" "Simply," she said, looking at him with her limpid blue eyes and coyly nestling her blonde hair Lsi his celluloid shirt-front, "simply chase the growler." He chased. ..." THE ROAD TO WEALTH. Somali Sarlnf the Hureat Foundation, ef a Creat Fortune. The man who saves somothlng every year, quotes a contemporary, who had heard the remark from every quarter, la on the road to prosperity,. It may not be possible to save much. It not, save a little. Do not think that a dollar or a dime is too smull a sum to lay by. Every body knows how littlo expendi tures get away with large sums. Hut few seem to know that the rule Is one that works both ways. If a dime spent here and a dollar thero soon make a large hole in a man's income, so do dimes and dollars laid away soon become a visible and respectable accumulation. In this country any man can mako him self Independent or keep himself under the harrow for life, according as he wastes or spends his small change. Most of our uiillionulies laid the foundation of their fortune by saving. It is said that Senator I'arwell com menced life us a surveyor, Cornelius Vanderbilt began life us a farmer. Postmaster-! ion oral Wanamaker's first salary was 81.V.5 a week. A. T. Htcwart inado his first start as a school-to acher. Cyrus Field began life as a clerk in a Now England store. Andrew Carnoglo did his first work In a telegraph office at 83 a week. Moeos Taylor clerked In Water street. New York, at 83 a week. Wbltelaw Hold, our Minister to France, did work as correspondent of a Cincin nati newspaper at 85 a week. George W. Chllds was an errand boy for a bookseller at $4 a mouth. Jay Gould cauvassed Delaware County, New York, Belling maps at Si. DO apiece. And to the above names, which are familiar to most persons, might be added hundreds of others whose fortune and fame had the same small beginning.

A'' winter goods sold st bslf price nt II. a CVrnV", till BENIGHTED SAVAGES. Experiences of Dr. Lumholtz In Northeastern Australia. Tribes That I.lvo Wholly Without (iof eminent anil with Only Single. Law Snake. l.liunU ami flruln for Food. Dr. Carl Lumholtz, ufChristiaiila, Nor way, the distinguished traveler and anthropologist, is In 1'hlludelphla, says tho Press of that city. Since 1ko, when he left his home in Norway, with brief intervals, ho has lived with aboriginal tribes lu Australia, tjueens land and other antipodal countries. For months at a time he consorted with tribes of cannibals who hud never be fore seen a white inun or come within touch of the rudest civilization. "Tbe most interesting way to Study man is In his wild state," said the doctor recently. "When bo comes In contact with civilization he becomes demoralized, and some years ago I went to And man In bis wild state in the Northeastern part of Australia, and I found him without a suspicion that there was any thing more civilized than him self. These tribes were hundredsof miles beyond where the white men bad pene trated and beyond tho tribes that had couio lnoontuct with white men. 1 lived with various tribes of these aboriginals for one year. They were cannibals, and lived In a state of perfect nudity. During my slay among them I lived their lives as nearly us possible. In appearance they are of medium size, but they are remarkably thin. They absolutely havo no calves on tholr legs whatever. Of course they are black in color. They aro not strong, but what they lack In strength they mako up for In dexterity. They are complete cowards." The doctor, lu passing from tribe to tribe, bought bis Immunity from harm by distributing tobaooo, of which the natives are Inordinately fond. When he would buy bis wolcomo into a tribe, the women, who do all the manual labor, would be directed to build him a hut This was a simple affair, consisting of a palm-leaf structure about four feet high and long enough to admit the body. Some were not aud the legs were al lowed to stick out of the man-hole. They were simply used to sleep In. The trlboa wore all nomadic, and theso huts had to be built now after every march, or every week or two. "Did you marry into any of the tribes?" "Oh, no," said the doctor, with a laugh, "but I had a great maay young girls presented to me. But they were not tempting, and I let them go as quickly as possible. Tho poor creaturea wore terribly afraid of me, and as soon as those who had prosentod thorn to me turned their backs I told tbem they could go, when they would scamper away like frightened deer. Thoy were given to mo as a sort of a sucrlfloe to appease my wrath. "For my own preservation I was obliged to keep the tribe in mortal ter ror of me. This I did by means of my fire-arms. I carried an American revolv er and a double-barreled shotgun, with one choke barrel In which I could use bullets. I am a pretty good shot, and my marksmanship was put to some pretty severe tests.' If 1 had missed my reign of fear would have been at an end and I would bave been killed. I always shot off my revolver before orawl lng Into my hut at night, as a warning that I had It still with me." Tho staples of food used by the tribes consist of snakes, lizards, grubs (which was the doctor's favorite dish), bugs, all kinds of Insects and even vermin. What stands with them for our Thanksgiving turkey, however, was human flesh. It is the great delicacy for which their ap petite constantly craves. They call it "talgoro," and the desire fir It Is al ways with them. Theso feasts, by force of olrcumstanoes, arc not common. They seldom kill a member of their own tribe for roasting purposes, although occa sionally a child Is sacrificed aud they are too cowardly to go to war, and con sequently It Is vory hard to got a good supply of "talgoro." About tho only way to got a good dish of "talgoro" Is to ambush an enemy and kill him from behind. Dr. Lumholtz dispels one wrong general Idea about tbe taste of cannibals, and that la they do not like white men's flush. Tbey say that It Is too salty and makes tbem sick. "Hut" said the doctor, "when they are hungry they will oat it." This, of course, only applies to the tribes near est to civilization. Those with whom the doctor lived bud never before seen a white man, and consequently bad nev er tasted one. They were anxious to do so, and sev eral efforts were made to kill the doctor, and he only escaped by constant vig ilance and the exercise of fear through bis weapons. The tribes bave no form of govern ment whatever. They have no chief or ruler of any kind. On occasions of great moment they consulted with the old men of the tribe and their advice is usually followed. Tbey have but one law and that forbids marriage between blood relations. They have no form of marriage. Wives aro taken and held by the strong arm. Whon a "black fellow" takes a fancy to a girl, whether she be a maiden or another man's wife, he grabs her In bis arms and runs home with her. He keeps hex just as long aa he Is able to bold her or until a stronger man takes a fancy to her and runs otT with her. This custom uiukos life a burden to tbe belle of the tribe. Sho never gets a chance to settle down in one home before she Is carried off to an other. Tbe strung men ot tho tribe usually maintain quite a harem, and have the best-looking girls, of court). Dr. Lumholtz estimates tha there are about 30,000 of these "black fellows," or alioriglnes, loft in Australia. They aro most plentiful In the north, and are di vided up in many small tribes. Thero aro seldom more than '!00 In a tribe. These tribes are constantly ut war with each other, but It Is a predatory war and not much dauiuge is done to the com batants as a rule. They do most of their lighting from ambush, aud will never attack unless In the majority. LONG-DISTANCE GUN. It lliTrnlor Cl:.lm Thai It Mill Fire Hall Ten MIIim.

A year or more dragged past, and 1 was aluiest disheart ened, when some good angel (or was it a demon!) directed mo to ofTer my firstling to Messrs. Btroet & .Smith, or the New York Weekly. Then came tuy triumph. In a few days a letter reached uo, bearing to my emaciated fiucers a check for one hundred dollar. 1 well remember the solid lump that loaped tuto my throat at sight of that bit of commercial paper. For a minute I thought I should choke. The earth appeared to have been mnde a present to me, and the sky took on the hue of slmuieriugbankbiUs. I was famous and rich. I felt that tSylvaous Cobb, Jr., must bow to me, aud retire at once from the profession of sensational fic tion writing. "Well, days, weeks, months, years, lust rums went by and I never again heard ot my precious MS. until recently, when some one told me that it was appearing as a serial In the New Yorlt Weekly. I procured a copy of that journal, and there, sure enough, all dripping with gore and spangled with bowle-knivcs and pistols, and flaring with red lights, flamed my long-delayed master piece. Twenty years of delay had not even coagulated its blood or tamed its murderous spirit In the least I hud forgotten its title, and I could not recall the name of a tingle character in it, hut a gluuco was sufficient Tbe long-lost vision arose before my eyos, like some of those memories of battle, with all the sulphur and powdor-bluze, and cir cling smoke, and thunder and blood. "Yes, it's a dime dreadful of the dime dreadfulost sort, perhups; I haven't read It yet; but forgive me if 1 confess that a sort of tender feeling fur it is, right now, assert ing itself in ray heart. Why, that story made it possible for me to live until I could begin life in Indiuna. I took that money and did begin, and although I can not feel that I have done much, still, what I have tone roots Its possibility back iu tbe soil of the ensanguined fiction which bore for Us first fruits the welcomest remittance of cash thatl have bandied." AN ANCIENT FORT. Discovery uf One ut t Sulla's liefenalve Works In Illinois. What has always been a disputed point in the early history of the Htate of Illinois has at last boen practically settled by tbe definite discovery of the site of KortC'reve C'ojur, the Korl of tho broken Hoart, built by Halle in the year 1U40. The chronicles made by Father Hennepin, writes a Peoria (111.) correspondent of the St. Louis Repub lic, state thut the fort wua orectod ou Lake Peoria, but the exact spot has always beeu in dispute by eminent authorities. Ban croft says it was four days' jour ney below Peoria, Parkhum says it was but three or four tulles below, anotber de clares It was up the river, and sffll another uiaiutaina that it was IxatoU on the west bank. Iu the two maps made by Hennepin the fort is located on the east aide of the river in what Is now Tazewell County. As to its locution, Ueuuepin suys: "After having reviewed the couutry we pitched upou an eminence on tbe bunk of the river, defended on that side by the river and on the other by ditches the rains had mode very deep by succession of time, ao that it was accessible by only one way; therefore we cast a line to join these two natural ditches and made the eminence steep on every side, supporting the earth with great pieces of timber. Our fort was very nearly finished and we named it tbe fort of Creve Cuuur, becauao tbe de sertion of our men and the othor difficulties we labored under bud almost broke our hearts." City Engineer Wigbteian became Inter ested in tho controversies and investiga tions brought out in tlie search for the site of tbe fort, and to him is due tbe discovery of the reul Bite. It is directly opposite the upper portion of the city of Peoria and on top of tho bluff, which commands a view ot the river. There yet remain the artificial trenches thut lined the stockade trans versely from tbe ravines, broken only by tho spaces where stood the gates. No tim ber, great or small. Is found In tbem, and so accurately are tbey drawn across the highest peak of the Tazewell bluff ss to leave no doubt of their artificial origin. On a winter's day, as tbat on which La Bails selected tbe site, and when the trees are divested of their obstructing foliage the view up and down the river is unbroken for miles. It Is at once a point of observa tion and defense. Just the point that would be Instinctively selected by so astute a man as La Sullo. Tbe discovery has created a good deal of discussion, and a number of people bare vlsltod the spot An Interesting Impromptu. - This rare hit of Inspiration wus written at liellovs Falls, Vu, In the summer of 1H52 by the then woll-known poet John O. Haze. A beautiful young lady asked htm for a line in btauutogruph for remembrance sake, when, tearing off tno blank halt of a note he had just read, he wrote: ''My daaroft Sarah. Suuintimo tax Your saok of thong ht With thought of Suit" fleyond His J urlatllotlou. Whon Lucy Whlttaker, colored, of Vlcks burg, died tho other day aha said sho would hauut Frank Jones, a recreant lover of hern, all his life. Ho has appealed to the courts for an liijuiii'lioti to restrain her from going Into the hauut Intr business, but the Judga Is Inclined lo repaid vho case as beyond bis jurisdiction.
