Tha Valley ol Jehneaphat The Story of tha Good Haniarltau I ha Worth ol Prao tloal Christianity Many Kelleotlone. In continuation of his lectures on the Holy Land Or. Talmage, In a late ser mon at Brooklyn, took bis text from Luke x. BO: "A certain man went down from Jerusalem to Jericho." Dr. Tal mage said: It is the morning of December 5 in Jerusalem and we take stirrups for the road along which the wayfarer of old fell among thieves who left him wound ed and half dead. Job's p cture of the horse in the Orient as bavin? neck clothed with thunder" is not true of most horses now in Palestine. There . Is no thunder on their neck, though there is some lightning in their heels. Poorly fed and unmercifully whacked ther sometimes retort To Americans 1 and English, who are accustomed to ! guide horses by the bridle, these horses 1 of the Orient, guided only by foot and voloe, make equestrianism an uncer tainty, and the pull on the bridle that you Intend for slowing up of the pace may be mistaken for a hint that you want to out gallop the wind or wheel in swift oiroles like the hawk. There were eighteen of our party, and twenty-two ' beasts of burden carried ourcamp equip ment We are led by an Arab sheik with bis blaok Nubian servant carrying a loaded gun In full Bight but it Is the fact that this sheik represents the Turk ish Government which assures the safe ty of the caravan. We cross the Jeboshaphat valley which, if It bad not been memorable In history and were oniy now discovered, would excite the admiration of all who look upon It It Is like tbe gorges of too Yosemlte or the chasms of the Yel lowstone park. Tbe sides of this Je boshaphat valley are tunneled with graves and overlooked by Jerusalem walls an eternity of depths overshad owed by an eternity of architecture. Within sight of Mount Olivet and Geth somane and with tbe heavens and the earth full of sunshine, we start out on the very road mentioned In the text when It says: "A certain man went down from Jerusalem to Jerlobo and foil among thieves." No road that I ever saw was so well constructed for brigandage deep gullies, sharp turns, caves on either side. There are fifty places on this road where a highway man might surprise and overpower an unarmed pilgrim. With tbe fresh memory of some recont vlolenoo in their minds Christ tells the people of the good Samaritan who came along that way and took care of a poor fellow that had been set' upon by vil lainous Arabs and robbed and pounded and cut We encamped for lunch that noon close by an old stone building, said to be the tavern where the soene spoken of in the Bible culminated. There were 12,000 priests living at Jericho and they had to go to Jerusalem to officiate at the temple. And one of these ministers of religion, I suppose, was on his way to the temple service and he is startled as he seos this bleed ing victim in the middle of the road. "O," he says, 'here is a man that has been attacked of thieves." "Why don't you go home?" says the minister. The man in a comatose state makes no answer, or, with a half dazed look, puts his wounded hand to his gashed fore head and drawls out "What?" "WeH," says the minister, "I must hurry on to my duties at Jerusalem. I have to kill a lamb and two pigeons. in sacrifice to day. I can not spend any more time with this unfortunate. I guess some body else will take care of him. But this is one of the things that can not bo helped, anyhow. Besides that, my business Is with souls and not witb bodies. Good morning. When yon get well enough to sit up I will be glad to see you at the temple" And the min ister curves his way out toward tbe over hanging sides of the road and passes. Soon afterward a Levite came upon the scene. The Levltes looked after tbe musio of tbe temple and waited upon tbe priests and provided the supplies of tbe temple. This Levite passing along this road where we are to-day, took a look at the masses of bruises and laceration in the middle of the road. "Mjl My!" Bays the Levite, "this man is awfully hurt and he ought to be helped. But my business is to sing in the choir at the temple. If I am not there no one will carry my part Be side that there may not be enough frankincense for the censers and the wine or oil may have given out, and what a fearful balk in the service that would make. Then one of the priests might get his breast plate on crooked. But It seems too bad to leave this man in this condition. Perhaps I bad better try to staunch this bleeding and give him a little stimulant But, nol The ceremony at Jerusalem Is of more Im portance than taking care of the wounds of a man who will probably soon be doad anyhow. But a third person is coming along this road. You can not expect bim to do any thing by way of alleviation, because ho and the wounded man belong to dif ferent nations which have abominated each other for centuries. Tbe wounded man is an Israelite and the stranger now coming on this scene of suffering Is a Samaritan. They belong to nations which hated each other with an objur gation and malediction diabolic. They had opposition temples, one on Mount Gorlzlm and the other on Mount Mo riah, and I guess this Samaritan when be comes up will give the fallen Israel ite another clip and say: "Good for youl I will just finish the work these bandits began, and give you one more kick that will put you out of your misery. And here Is a rag of your coat that they did not steal and I will take that Whatt Do you dare to appeal to me for mercy? Hush upl Why, your ancestors wor shiped at Jerusalem when they ought to have worshlpod at Gerlrlm. Now take thatt And that! And that!" will say the Samaritan as he pounds tha fallen Israelite. No; tbe Samaritan rides up to the scene of suffering, gets off the beast and steps down and looks into the faoe of the wounded man and says: "This poor, fellow does not belong to my nation, and our ancestors worshiped In differ ent places, but be is a man, and that makes us brothers. God pity bim, as I dot" And be gets down on his knees and begins to examine bis wounds, and straighten out bis limbs to see If any of his bone are broken, and says: "My dear fellow, cheer up, you need have no moro care about yourseif, for I am going to take care of you. Let me feel of your pulse! Let me Union to your breathing! I have in these buttles two liquids that will help you. The one it oil, and that will soothe the pain of these wounds, and thn oilier Is wine, and your pulse is feebln and you feel faint and that will stlmulatfj you. Now I must get you to tbe nearest tavern " "O, no," nays tbe man; "I can't walk; let mo slay here and die." "Nonsense," says the Ssv maritan. "You are not going to die. I am going to put you on this beast and I will hold you on till I get you to a place where you can have a soft mattress and an easy pillow." Now tbe Samaritan has got tbe wound ed man on bis feet and with much tug ging and lifting puts him on the beast, for it Is astonishing bow strong the spirit ot kindness will make one, as yon have Been a mother after three weeks of aloepleas watching of ber boy, down with scarlet fever, lift that half grown boy, heavier than herself, from couob to loungo. And so this sympathetic Samaritan has, unaided, put the wounded man In the saddle, and at slow pace the extemyoriaed ambulance is moving towanl tlii tavern. "Vou feel better now, I think," says Hie Samaritan to the Hebrew. "Yes," he says, "I do feel bettor." "Halloo! you, landlord! help mo carry this man in and make bim comfoi'lahlo." That iii(;lit the Samaritan sat up tvit.li I lie .low, giving him water wlionovcr he felt thirsty and turning his pillow whenever it (jot hot and in the morning before the Samari tan started on his journey he said: "Landlord, now I am obliged to go. Take good care of this man and I will be along here soon again and pay you for all you do for him. Meanwhile here Is something to meet presentexpenses." As on that December noon we sat un der the shadow of the tavern where this soene of mercy had occurred, and just having passed along the road where the tragedy hud happened, 1 could, as plainly as I now see the nearest man to this platform, see the liiblo story re-on-acted, and said aloud to our group un der the tent: One drop of practical Christianity is worth more than a temple full of ecclesiustlcistn, and that good Samaritan had more rollirlon in five minutes than thut minister and Levite had in a lifetime, and the most accursed thing on earth is national prejudice, and I bless God lliat I live in America where .Gentile and Jew, Prot estant and Catholic can llvo together without quarrel, and where, in the great National crucible, the di (Terences of sect and tribe and people are being moldod into a great brot herhood, and that the quostion which the lawyer flung at Christ snd which brought forth this in cident of the good Samaritan, "Who is my neighbor? is iirlugtno; tor tno answer: "Mv neighbor is the first man I meet in trouble," and a wound close at band calls louder than a templo sev enteen miles off, though it covers nine teen acres. I saw in London the vast procession which one day last January movod to 8t Paul's cathedral at tho burial of that Christian hero, Lord Napier. The day after at Hawarden, in conversation on various themes, I asked Mr. Gladstone if ho did not think that many who were under the shadow of fulse religions might not nevertheless be at heart real ly Christian. Mr. Gladstono replied: "Yes; my old friend Lord Naplor who was yesterday buried, after he returned from his Abyssinian campaign, visited us here at Hawarden and, walking in this park whore we are now walking, he told me a very beautiful incident He said: 'After the war in Africa was ovor, we were on tho inarch and we had a sol- after with a broken leg who was not strong enough to go along with us and we did not dare to leave him to bo taken care of by savages, but we found we were compelled to leave him and we went Into the houso of a woman who was said to be a very kind woman, though of the race of savages, and we said: "Here is a sick man, and if you will take care of him till bo gets well we will pay you very largely," and then we offered her five times that which would ordinarily bo offered, hoping by tbe excess of pay to secure for him great kindness. Tbe woman replied: "I will not take care of him for the morsy you offer. I do not want your money. But leave him here, and I will take care of him for tbe sake of tbe love of God." But our procession of sight seers is again in line, and here we pass through a deep ravine and I cry to the drago man: "David, what place do you call this?" and he replied: 'This is the brook Cberltb, where Elijah was fed by tbe ravens" And in that answer he overthrew my life-long notions of the place where Elijah was waited on by tbe black servants of the sky. A brook to me had meant a slight depression of ground and a stream fordable, and per haps fifteen feet wide, liut here was a chasm that an earthquake must have scooped out with its biggest shovel or split with its mightiest battle axe. Six hundred feet doop is it and the brook Cherlth is a river which, when In full force, Is a silver wedge, splitting tbe mountains Into precipices The feath ered descendants of Elijah's ravens still wing tbelr way across this ravino, but are not like tbe crows we supposed them to be. They are as large as eagles, and one of them could carry in Its beak and clinched claw at once enough food for a half-dozen Elijahs. No thanks to the ravens; they are carnivorous and would rather have picked out the eyes of Elijah, whom they found at the mouth of his cave on tbe side of Cberltb waiting for his breakfast having drunk his morning beverage from the rushing stream beneath, than have been bis but lers and purveyors But God compelled them, as lie always compelled and al ways will oompel black and cruel and overshadowing providences, to carry help to His children if they only have faith enough to catch the blessing as It Srops from tbe seeming adversity, the greatest blessings always coming not with white wings but black wings. But look! Look what at four o'olook In tbe afternoon bursts upon our vision the plain of Jericho anl the valley ot Jordan and the Dead sea. We have come to a place where tbe horses not so much walk as slide upon their haunohes, and we all dismount for the steep de scent Is simply terrific, though a Prin cess of Wallachia, who fell here and was dangerously injurod, after recovery spent a large amount of money In try ing to make the road passable. Down and downl till we saw the white tents pitched for us by our muleteers amid the ruins of ancient Jericho, which fell at the sound ot poor music played on "ram's horn," that ancient instrument which taken from the head of the lead er of the flock of sheep, is perforated and prepared to be fl tigered by the musical performers, and blown upon when pressed to the lips. On the evening of December A we ! walked amid the brick and mortar of that shattered city, and I said to myself: All this was done by poor music blestof ' God, for it was not a harp or a flute, or a clapping cymbal, or an organ played, at tbe sound ot wnich the city surren dered to destruction, but a rude lnstru j ment making rude music blest of God, I to the demolition of that wicked place whloh bad for centuries defied the Al mighty. Seated by tho warmth ot our oamp flres that evening of December 8, amid tbe bricks and debris of Jericho, and thinking what poor music has done and what mightier things could be accom plished by tbe blessings of God on good musio, I said to myself: Ministers have been doing a grand work, and sermons bave been blessed, but would it not be well for us to put more emphasis on musio? Oh. for a campaign of Old Hundred! Ob for a brigade of Mount Plsgabs! Oh, for a cavalry charge of Coronations! Oh, for an army of Antl ochs and 8t Martins and Ariols! Oh, for enough orchestral batons lifted, to marshal all nations! As Joricho was surrounded by poor music for seven days and was conquered, ho letourearth be surrounded seven days by Gospel music, and the round planet will all be taken for God. While our evening meal Is being pre pared in the tents we walk out for a moment to thn "Fountain of Elisha," the one Into which the prophet threw the salt because the waters were pois onous and bitter, and lo! they became sweet and healthy; and ever since, with gurgle and laughter, they have rushed down tho bill and leaped from the rocks, the only cheerful object In all that region being those waters. Now on this plain of Jericho tho sun Is setting, making the mountains look nao oaiunrados uml liattlemonts of amber and niuroon and gold, and the moon, just above tbe crests, seems to be a window of Heaven through which Im mortals uiigli', be looking, down upon the scene. Three Arabs as watchmen Bit beside tho' camp lire at the door of my tent their low conversation In a strange language all night long a sooth ing rather than an interruption. I had a dream that night never tu be (ora-ob. ten. that dream amid the complete ruins of Jericho. Its past grandeur roturned and I saw tho city as it was whon Mark Antony gave It to Cleopatra and Herod boucrhtlt from her. And I heard the hoofs of its swift steeds and the rum blingof its chariots and the shouts of excited spectators in us ampminoater. The reirion round about tho city walls soemed to mo white with cotton such as Thenius - deserlhed as once growing there, and sweet with sutrar cane and luscious with orange and rigs and pome granates, and redolent with such flora as can only grow where a troploal sun kisses the earth. And tho hour curao back to mo when In tho midst of all that splendor Herod died commanding his sister Salome immediately after his death to secure tho ussusslnutlon of all the chief Jews whom he had brought to the city, and shut up in a circus for that purpose, and tho news camo to the audience In tho theater as sumo one took the stags and announced to tho excited multitudo: "Herod Is deadl Herod is deadl" Then In my dream all tho pomp of Jericho van ished and gloom wos added to gloom, and dosolatlon to desolation, and woo to woe, until, perhaps tho rippling waters of tbo fountain of Elisha suggesting it as sound will sonio times give direc tion to a dream I thought the waters of Christ's salvation and tho fountains "open for Bin and uncleanness," were rolling through that plain, and rolling across that continent and rolling across the earth, until on either side of their banks all the thorns became flowers, and all tbe desorts gardens, and all the hov els mansions, and all the funerals bridal processions, and all the blood of war was turned into dahlias, and all tbe groans became anthems, Dante's "In ferno" became Dante's "Divina Corn media," and "Paradise Lost" was sub merged by "Paradise Regained," and tears became crystals, and cruel swords came out of tbe foundries glistening plowshares, and, in my dream, at the blast of a trumpet the pros trated walls ot Jorichorose again. And some one told me that as those walls in Joshua's timo at tho sound of the trumpets of doom went down, now at the sounding trumpet of the Gospel they come up again. And I thought a man appeared at the door of my tent, and I said: "Who aro you, and from whonco have you come?" and ho said: "I am the ! Samaritan you heard of at the tavern on the road from Jerusalom to Jericho, as taking care of the man who fell among thieves, and I have ustcome from heal ing the last wound of the last unfortu nate In all the earth." And I rose from , my pillow in the tent to greet him, and my dream broke and I realized It was only a dream, but a dream which shall . become a glorious reality as surely as God is true and Christ's gospel Is the world's Catholtcon. 'Glory be to the Father, and to tbe Son, and to the Holy Ghost, as it was In the beginning, Is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen." PUNGENT PARAGRAPHS.

Bay City has the largest wooden ware factory in thn world.

Tho bones of some prehistoric giants havo been unearthed near Arm is ton, Ala. One of the lliiirh bones was sixty two Inches long, and the skulls averaged thirty-four inches in circumference. There is now more beet than cane sugar consumed. In 1SH1 thn total of the world's production of cano sugar was '2,00l,.imi tons, and of bee I sugar 1,77-1,11011 tons.

Whon Sir John Herschel was de fending the character of astronomical science in view of an error of nearly 4.000,0110 miles in eutimaling tho sun's distance, tho correction was shown to apply to an error of observation ho small as to bo equivalent to the apparent breadth of a human hair at a dislanco of 125 foot Prof. Ponfick, a surgeon of Hreslau, Germany, has succeeded in removing In rabbits portions of the liver amounting to one-half, without killing them, and has subsequently found that tho dis sected oryan grew again to moro than its original size, proving that the liver has the astonishing power of repairing lost tissue. Prof. William 1). Parks, Supervis ing Engineer of tho Edison Eloctric Light Company of Philadelphia, an electrical expert says ho Is willing to stake his reputation as an electrical en gineer on his ability to construct an eloctric motor that could take a train of cars from Philadelphia to Now York In thirty-nix minutes. Nino-tenths of the raisins sold in this country are made in California, and yot California raisinmakorsship all their best goods to New York and have them boxed and marked us if they camo from Spain. They claim that tho public looks with moro favor on imported raisins, and for this reason they aro ob liged to go to all this trouble. Koroseno vapor is a palpable irritant of the throat and air passages, and may well have had something to do with tho alleged fact that in a recent epidemic of diphtheria, in Hartford, Conn., the only. fatal cases occurred in families who used kerosene lamps, while tho families who used gas or candles for light in sick-rooms escaped a fatal termination. Tho Sanitary Era. The idea, generally current that doath, following on disease, most fro quontly octiurs during the early hours of morning has been proved by a recent investigation to lie erroneous. Dr. Burns, of tho Charity Hospital, New York, has made observations in somo 15,000 cases, extending ovor twelve years, with tho result of finding that no particular hour or period of the day is specially fatal. Andrew Carnogio will havo a history of the several industrial establishments in America with which be has been connected prepared and handsomely ! printed, to present to the foreign visit ors who will come to Pittsburgh next month to attend the international meet ing of mechanics and metallurgical en gineers. Tho book will be handsomely bound end profusely illustrated. The history of the works and tho various nroceHRfin of flteelniakinir will he care- ' . fully explained. The San Francisco Chronicle esti mates that tho fruit shipments from California to the East this year will reach 10,000 carloads, or 200, 000,000 pounds. It says: "At an average price of five cents a pound -which may bo considered low, as the above embraces a vast quantity of dried fruit, which sells at from oight to twenty cents a pound our surplus for export will bring the ritate at least sio.ooo.ooo. This is a pretty good showing for a section in which apples and pears sold freely at 81.110 to 83 a pound forty years ago, and which at that time was deemed by most persons unlit for any other purpose than to dig gold and raise cattle for their hides and tallow, illfli Sprnl un tho Ocsan. It bits been said that when the dan ger of collision arises, if a vessel is slowed down she will havo time to get out of the way. This, as a matter of fact, is a fallacy, says tho Pittsburgh Dispatch. The faster a ship steams tho more fully sho is under command of hor helm, and this is especially true in the present day of steam steering gear. when tho quartermaster has unlimited power at his command to put tho helm over quickly. Ocean linors will never go slow enough to allow thorn to stop ana go astern in thenventof meeting in a fog. Captains will always depend on tho maneuvering properties of their ships, and, as already stated, tbe faster they go the moro quickly will the rud der act, so that spoed, which from one point of view is an element of .danger. bas its counterbalancing advantages. Tbe opinion of our best skippers inclines toward the greator sufoly for their ships Detng oDtatnoa at tilgli speeds, in the matter of danger from collision in case ' " meeting other steamers in a fog. First HallKulanrl-Korn (Isrinsn. In tho very hour in which the Gorman Emperor performed the historic act of taking possession of Heligoland, the wife of a poor cobbler gave birth to a boy, sayH the Leipziger Zoitung. Accord ing to the Anglo-American agreement. this boy, being born tinder German rule, was tho first recruit from th" island won for the Gorman army. As sons as this event becumo known, several Berlin visitors issued an appeal, which was couched in terms both serious and hu morous, for "tho first German rocruit from Heligoland." The members of the committee headed the list with con tributions of twenty marks each, and then circulated it among the other vis itors to the island, who on thatsignlicant day were equally willing and liberal. Before sunset tho parents of the "first Gorman recruit" were most agreeably surprised by a present of a nice little sum in grateful recognition of such well-timed patriotism. A New Florida Industry. English Industries states that a novel business, resting strictly on chemical principles and needing nothing but a little capital and a dash of dishonesty to devolop it. is said to be practiced in Florida. It consists in avoiding de pendence upon the slow and imperfect ripening of lemons by the sun's rays, by picking tho fruit wkilo green and ex posing it to the fumes of burning sul phur, whereby its color is changed to a rich golden yellow, infinitely nrjre at tractive than the natural hue. "it is true that tho interior of the lemon is practically free from juice, a fact which the hypercritical might reckon a slight drawback; but this Is, after all, a tt iv.il matter, alfecting only the consumer," is the halve applied to the conscience.
