Tho young patient just addressed
was a timid and pretty creature of six

time, and glanced shyly on each side,
as if afraid of being overheard. Pity
ing her embarrassment, and interested
by her figure, tho doctor took hor into
an inner room.

tone, "What's tho maller? Come,

Plymoutli church Talniago is not hilo
in tho Tabornacle. As tho boys say,
"Talniago is a corker." Ho draws a
ranch largor crowd than Beecher, but
it is a different crowd. It is tho crowd
without brains, tho crowd that likes to
bo amused aud linds Talniago a choap
mau to amuso thom. Ho is sensational
and so is Bcochor, but they do not OOH*
llict. Boochor's sensationalism con
sists in presenting startling facts about
odueation, or roligiou, or politics.
Talmage's sensationalism consists in a
monkey-show, girating on tho plat
form bko a clown, and by raking up
old and disputed topics for discussion,
and in reopening old sores. Tho
cornotist who loads tho kinging holps
to attract tho crowd, and Talniago
kuows tho chords of tho human heart,
for ho plays on thom unceasingly. Ho
docs not seek to oducatu in religious
matters. Ho solects a text, and around
that ho weaves agarlaudof words, and
hero and thcro ho intersperses old anec
dotes and stories that sometime cause
a smilo or a tear. Beecher does nono
of this. Ho is above it, and thcro aro
somo things that ho will not plungo
boldly into. Talniago will undertako
anything for notoriety. Ho would
write a Biblo if ho wero asked to.
Doth Hocchor and Talniago havo had
their tussles with Dob Ingersoll, but
haven't you noticed that Beecher has not
had much to *say against Royal Bob
latoly? Talmage, however, seldom
misses a chanco to hit tho great orator.
His blow is a blow of a sandbag,
though. Ho doesn't sharpen adoliealo
stilotto and stick it into his opponont's
heai t as Beecher doos. Talmage ex
hausts himself at ono swoop and thou
Ingersoll jumps on him, and if ono mau
over gave another a drubbing on tho
platform Ingersoll certainly did Tal
A few years ago Ingersoll wrote a
paper on "The Christian Religion"
that was published in the North Amer
can Review. It was a very aldo articlo
and attracted great attention. It was
nothing moro than tho old views that
Ingersoll had so often expressed in
public, but each sentence was ollectivo,
and having boon published in KO prom
inent a magazine they were given moro
Weight than they really deserved.
Thorndyko Rice, editor of thc lie
view, had engaged Judge Joro Black,
of Pennsylvania, to reply to tho article.
Black had given tho subject much
thought and study. Ho was tho ablest
constitutional lawyer in tho country.
Ho was a splendid speaker, a mai: of
rare attainments, a clear logician, ho
was just tho man to reply to Ingersoll,
and lo smash into atoms tho indict
ment that Ingersoll had drawn up.
The church pooplo seemed confident.
They believed their knight would slay
the infidel.
Well, tho articlo was published, and
candor compels the admission it was a
lamentable failure.
Black seemed to have lost his grip
but ho severely denounced Ingersoll as
a charlatan, and in a gonoral way
scoffed at his unbelief.
To this Ingersoll replied, and Black
admitted that for once he bad been
worsted. Tho groat infidel didn't
spare his mau. He took oil' ' air and
hide al tho same time, and left his vic
tim without a word to say. lt was at
this juncture that Uooohor carno to the
front, and ibis wiil establish Ibo point
that I have made, that Ibero aro somo
contracts too big for him to enter into.
Editor Bice calb il on Beecher.
"liaio you read thu discussion be
tween Col. Ingersoll and Judgo
Black ?" ho asked him.
"Yes, very carefully," was Beecher's
"Which do you think has the best of
"Iiigersoll, decidedly."
"Bul thc argument is not finishod,
Mr. Beecher, and I came to ask you to
tako up tho case against Ingersoll and
refute his statements."
"I should bko to very nundi."
"Then why not do it? ? will gi v i
you $6,000 for a paper on "Tho Chris
tian Religion' that will dispose of tho
atheistic question nt onco and for
ever. "
"Yes, I guess you would," concluded
Beecher, "but I won't undortako it. I
can't do it. No man can dc it. It is
an impossibility. Wo may bolievo that
Ingersoll is wrong, but wo can't givo
positive proof of it."
That was manly anyhow.--ACM; York

is something radically wrong with such

to stay at home, or how great an un

already inadequate to tho demands of
traillo and mootiug tho revival of tho
old schemo of tunneling under thc Ni
agara, every sagacious person has
predicted a great commorcial futuro
for tho Qucon City of tho ompiro State.
With tho completion of tho Northern
Pacific Railroad tho wholo world will
pay lier tributo. Not only will tho
products of tho inimenso wheat fields
of tho Ked River, tho coal, oil, and iron
of Pennsylvania, tho lumber of Michi
gan and tho Southern States, tho ores
of Lako Superior, and tho livo stock ot
tho great western prairies pass through
her gates, but tho conirucrco of Asia
with the Atlantic States, with England,
and tho Continent.
lu tho yoar off Buffalo's incorpora
tion, 1832, when thoro wcro hut ono
hundred miles of rail in tho United
States, was granted tho first permit to
nut a railroad through Erio county.
Now, without tho repetition of a rod,
over niuo thousand miles of travol aro
possible on tho lines confering at Buf
falo alono, as tho starting point or tor
minus of twenty different railway lines.
No city, save ono, owes so much to
railroads as does Buffalo. Her tormin
al facilities aro unoqualed, and her
transfer yards at East Buffalo aro tho
largest in tho world, with tho outlying
country encompassed for miles about
by a net-work of tracks, approach
ing closer and closer os they
near tho city, and extending around
tho harbor-side to pour their freight
of coal, salt, and petroleum in
to the lake vessels in return for a car
go of grain, Hour, lumber, iron, and
copper ore. Commercial B?llalo is
like a portly and self-satisfied spider,
supreme in the center of her wob.
Tho business mau has his ohoico
among six different routes to Now
York city. The New York Central
and Hudson Uiver; tho New York,
Lake Eric, and Western; the New
York, Wost Shore, and B?llalo; li:u
Delaware. Lack wail hu, and Western;
the Lehigh Valley; and tho Buffalo di
vision ot the Buffalo, New York, and
Philadelphia-all load east amid tho
beautiful scenery ol' the interior of tbo
Slate. Stretching away in an opposito
direction toward tho western prairies
arc tho Lako Shoro and Michigan
Southern, tho Michigan Central, thu
Glrngd Trunk of Canada, tho Groat
Western division, and the New York,
Chicago, and St. Louis, or "Nickel
{dato." Tho romalnlng niuo roads aro
ocal lines. Among the most impor
tant of thoso is tho B?llalo Crook Rail
way, a belt freight line four milos in
length, extending down on either sido
of tho ship canal. Every railroad en
tering tho city has connection with
this, and by tho terms of tho city's
grant its rates are uniform to all, thus
placing tho railroads on equal terms.
Within tho oily limits railroad cor
porations own 2,74(J acres, or moro
than four square miles of territory.
There are 486 miles of standard guago
track-more milos of rail than aro con
tained in any other city on tho globe.
Within thc cornorato boundaries of Iiis
own town thu Bullalonian could enjoy
a railroad journey cciual to a trip to
Now York over tho Lackawanna, with
twouty-six milos to spare.-Jane M.
Welch in ITarper'i Magazine for July.

A Doo tor's Hint to Working-Men
When you havo heavy work to do
do not tako oithor boer, cider, oi
spirits. By far tho best drink is tliii
oat meal and wator, with a little sugar
Tho proportion?, aro a quarter of i
pound of oat meal to two or throi
quarts of water, according to tho boa
of tho day an^ your work and thirst; i
should bo wuil boilod, and thon ai
ouueo or an ounco and a half of browi
sugar added. If you lind it tbtoko
than you like, add throo quarts of wa
tor. Boforo you drink it, shake up tin
oatmoal well through tho liquid. Ii
so m mer drink this cold; in wintor hot
You will find it not only quonche
thirst, but will givo you moro strengt!
and onduranco than any other drink
li you cannot boil it, you can take
littlo oatmoal mixed with cold walo
and sugar, but this is not so good; n!
ways boil it if you can. It nt any tim

n Imrvost, and cannot stop Tor moult
inei ea io tho oat meal to half a potint
or ovon throo-quartcrs, and Ibo watc
to throo quarts if you aro likoly to I
rory thirsty. For quenching thirst, itv
things are better than woak coffee an
a 1P.U0 sugar. Ono ounco of coffee an
half an ounoe ol sugar boilod in tw
auart? of wator and cooled is a vei
iii .ii-quenching drink. Cold toa hi

Twonty-aix years ago a young dork
in tho city of Now York stolo a pockot
dictionary from tho law oiiico in which
ho was oinployod, and, soon aftor,
thirty-fivo dollars in money from other
employors in tho saino city. Ile ro
movod to China, whore as lt appears,
ho lived virtuously, and bocaruo a pros
perous man. Ho is still a rosidont of
A few months ago ho lost a prayer
book, which was roturned to him by a
Catholic priest, to whom tho theft had
boon confessed. At iirst, indignant at
tho injury done him, ho donianded tho
txposuro and punishment of the thief.
Dut tho recollection of his own similar
transgressions long ago o anio to him
with such forco that his anger was
swallowed up in contrition, ana ho de
termined to mako a similar restitution.
Ho wroto a letter iu tho Now York
Herald, confessing his thofts, enclosing
tho stolen dictionary and monoy, ana
requested tho editor to forward tho
samo to their owners, or in caso they
could not bo found, to give the mouoy
to a charitable institution.
Tho proprietor of tho book had been
dead for many years, hut tho rightful
owner of tho money, ouco a prosperous
New York merchant is now a toDacco
plantor in North Carolina, and so poor
that tho stolon money is roallj an im
fortant addition to his yoar's rovouuo,
t hns boen sent to him.
A remarkablo circumstance is, that
tho contrito man gave to tho Herald his
full namo and address, and in montion
ing his crime, ho did not call it by any
lino name, or attempt any excuse Ho
says in plain English that ho "stolo"
tho book and "pilforod" tho money.
Ho is a wiso man. Ho has won back a
portion of a lost treasure, most pro
cious, his solf-rospect! Moro than this,
whilo it was not necossary that ho
should havo given Iiis namo to tho pub
lic, ho has mudo such restitution as lay
iu his power for tho wrong ho had
Brond-l<'aced lien.
However dull un Irishman's ear may
bc, iiis imagination is always lively, a
fact which thia amusing anecdote illus
trates: A rather stout Irishman was
walking slowly through thc markot one
morning witli a haskel on hi? arm. On
coining to a stall wheio a large owl
was perched upon :\ bar, he stopped.
After inspecting it for a few minutes
will? a troublod expression on his coun
tenance, his face lighted up, and with ?
a patronizing air he inquired:
"How much do you want for your
broad-faced hon?"
With a very audiblo grin tho pro
prietor ropliod,
"That's no lien; it's an owl "
"1 dou't care howould it is; it's good
onough for tho bourdthors, and it will
make soup.
