On a Pernvlun Cliff.
Explorers have found a great many mummies in caves in cliffs among the Peruvian mountains. How the Indi aos who entombed their dead in this way reached the caves hundreds ol feet down the sides Ol' steep cliffs, is a matter of conjecture. A French trav? eler, M. Weiner, narrates a visit to one of thesr* sepulchers, and the seri? ous danger he was in of ending his travels then and there. "I went with twu Indians," he writes, "to a point on a high plateau below which was one of thc caves, and had the Indians lower me over the precipice with leather ropes. "A journey of a hundred metres straight downward, made In such a way, is extraordinarily long. I ar? rived at last at the tomb. It wa9 half clcsod with rocks. I went in and found two skulls and a mummy. I tied the skulls to my belt, and taking the mummy in my arms gave the sig? nal for the Indians to draw me up. "They obeyed, and gradually I neared thc top of the precipice The Indians had not looked over it, and had no suspicion of what I was bring? ing in my arms. When the yellow -skull of their ancient ancestor ap? peared above the edge of the cliff, the Indians were terribly frightened, and let slip the ropes. "I tannot describe my feelings In the next second, the awful terror of leglniiing to fall. In my fright I let go of the mummy, and it was dashed into a thousand pieces at the bottom of tho abyss. Hut the Indians had not lost their hold of the ropes; they tlrew me up again, and in a moment I stood lo safety at the top of the precipice. "Xysuperstitiouslndiansexplainel tn me that when 'those good people,' the mummies, are distuibed hy In 'lian-s they seize them in a fatal em? brace, and they assured rae that, as this mummy's head rose into their fright, it opened its mouth and would have utti red a fearful curse upon them, had it not just then boen dashed to the bottom of the abvss." _ "may Picnics Ar? So Called. Everybody knows what a picnic is, bot most folks would find lt hard to say how it got that name, and yet it is simple enough when you come to learn it. When a picnic was being i.rianged for, the custom originally was that those who intended to be present should supply th2 eatables and drinkables. A list of those n.~ ressities having been drawn up, it was passed round, and each person picked out the article of food or drink that he or she was willing to furnish, and the name of the article was nicked, or ticked off the list. Thc open-air entertainment thus became known as "pick and nick." Thc cus? tom is said to have dated from 1802, s i that the picnic is wholly an insti? tution of the nineteenth century. The printing-press on which Ben? jamin Franklin worked as a journey? man printer in 1725 was very little Improved until 1817, when George Clymox, of Philadelphia, invented the "Columbian" press. It was the first important improvement. In 1820 .Samuel Rust invented the "Washington-' press, which super Beded others for a while. With that machine a good workman could turn off 2,000 sheets a day. It was'a good day's work when Franklin's old press gave 260 impressions. Admirable. The young men of Corin, Mo., formed a Society of Woodchoppers raily last winter.

Text: "By ,.?-n shall the fowl* of thi heaven have their habitation, Cchich sing among the brancher."-~?3alrns, civ., 12. There ls an linpc.rt.nt and improving sub? ject to which most people have given no thought and concerning whj_i this ls the first pulpit discussion?namely. "The Song of Birds." If all that has been written concern? ing music, by human voice or about musio ?sounded on instrument by finger or breath were put together, volume by the side of volume, it would fill a hundred alcoves of the national libraries. First, I remark that which will surprise many, that the song of birds is a regulated and systematic song, capable of being written out in note and staff and bar and clef as much as anything that Wagner or Schumann or Handel ever put on paper. As we pass the grove where the flocks aro holding matin or vesper service we ara apt to think that the sounds ara extemporized, the rising or falling noto is a mero accident, it is flung up anel down by haphazard, tho bird did not know what it was doing, it did not care whether it was a long meter'psalm or a madrigal. What n mistake! The musician never put on tho music rack before; him Mendelssohn's "Elijah" or Bee? thoven's ??Concerto" in G or Spohr's B flat ! symphony with moro deflnito idea as to j what ho waa doing than every bird that can I sing at all confines himself to accurate and predetermined rendering. The oratorios, the chnnts, the carols, the overtures, the inter? ludes, the ballads, the canticles that this morn? ing were heard or will this evening ba heard in the forest have rolled down through tho ages without a variation. Even tho chipmunk's song was ordained clear back in tno eternities. At tho gates of paradise lt fang in sounds like tho syllables "Kuk!" "Kuk!" "Kuk!" just as this moraine in a Long Island orchard it sang "Ku!-!" "Kuk !" "Kuk !'' The thrush at the creation uttered sounds liketheword "Teacher!" "Teacher!" "Teacher!" rs now it utters sounds like "Teacher!" "Teacher!" "Teacher!" In tho summer of the year 1 tho yellow? hammer trilled thtit which sounded like "If!" "If!" "Tf!" as in this summer it trills "If!" "If!" "If!" The Maryland yellowthroat in? herits and bequeaths the tune sounding like the words "Pity me, pity me, pity me !" Tho white f-parrow's "Tseep, tseep' woke our great .grandfathersaa it will awaken our great grandchildren. The "Tee-ka-tee-ka-toe-ka" of the birds in Ihe first century was the same 08 the "Teoka-tee-ka-tee-ka" of the nine? teenth century. Tho goldfinch has for 6000 years been pinging ??Pe-rec-dee-ee-ree." But theso sounds, whleh we put in harsh word;?, they put itt, cadences, rhythmic, soulful and enrapturing. Now if thero is this order and systematization and rhythm all through God's creation does lt' not imply that we should havo tho samo characteristics in th-3 music wo make or try to make? Is it not a wickedness that so many parents give no opportunity for tho culture of their children in the art of sweet sound? If God stoops to educate every blue? bird, orio!-* and grosbeak in song, how can parents bo so indifferent about the musical development of the immortals in their house? hold? Wc want a hemispheric campaign of hosan? nas. From hearing a Wind beggar sing Mar? tin Luther wont homo at forty years of ago to write his first hymn. In the autumn I hope to have a congregational singing school hero during tho week which shall preparo tne people for tho songs of the holy S<ab bath. If the church of God universal is go? ing to take this world for righteousness, there must bo added a hundredfold of more harmony 33 well cs a hundredfold of more volume to sacred music. Further, I notice in tho song of birds that it ls a divinely taught 6ong. The rarest prima donna of all the earth could not teach the robin one musical note. A kingfisher flying over the roof of a tem? ple aquake w.th harmonies would not satoh up one melody. From the time that tho first bird's throat was fashioned ran the banks of the Gihon and Hiddekel until tc-djry cn tho Hudson or Rhino the winged creaton has learned nothing "rom thc human race in tho way of carol or inthem. Tha feathered songsters learned ill their music direct from God. He gave hem tho art in a nest of straw or moss or ktleks and taught them how to lift that song nto the higher heavens and sprinkle tho j ?arth with its dulcet enchantments. God , hshioncd. God tuned, God launched, God j j ifted music ! And there is a kind of musio j j rhat tho Lord only can impart to you, my nearer. Songs like that which Tani commended to ;he Colossians when he said, "Admonish one mother in ps-lms and hymns and spiritual ;ongs, singing, with grace in your hearts, to ho Loni." Bcngs like .Moses sang after the ragedy of the Ked sea, songs Uko Deborah ind Barak sa**g at the overthrow of Sisera, songs like Isaiah heard the redeemed sing an ae carne to Zion. Oh. God, teach us that kind of song which Thou only canst teach ind help us to sing it on earth and sing it in beaven. It was the highest result of sweet wand when under the playing of Paganini ano auditor exclaimed reverently. "Oa, i Clod '' an I another sobbed out,--Ofa. Christ!" Further. 1 remark In regard to the song ol birds that it is trustful and without nny lear >f what may yet come. Will you tell m i how it is possible for that wren, that spar- ' row that ohiokndee, to sing so sweetly when ney may any tirr.3 be pounced upon ly n lawk and torn wing from wing? There ara rue?I beaks in thicket and lu sky ready to lay the song binds. Herods on 'the wins, ilodoeg of the sky. Assassins armed with ron claw. Murderers ot song floating u;i nd down the heavens. How can the'birds ing amid such perils? Besides that, how is he bird sure to get food? Millions bl brr ls ?ave been starved. Yet it sings in the dawn without any certainty o' breakfast or dinner >r supper. Would it not bo better to gather j fi ts food fer tho day before vocalizing. Besides that, tho hunters aro abroad. \ , Jang! goes a gun in ono direction. Hang! oes a gun in another direction. The song i fill attract the shot and add to the peril. For every bird a thousond perils and disr.s- .,; "rs hoveringand sweeping round and round. I * et thero it sines, and it is a trustful son?, j a 'he bird tbat has it tho hardest sings tho , g -veetest. The lark from tho shape of her j laws may not perch on a tree. In the grass J y, er nest is exposed to every hoof that passes. ! tj no of the poorest shelters of all tho earth is ! j,: io lark's nest. If she sings at all. you will j \\ ?-peet her to render, the saddest of threno- \ tl ies. Xo, no. She sings e?:u!tingly an hour" Ithout a pause and mounting 3000 feet with nt losing a note. Further, in the sky galleries there ari >ngs adapted to all moods. The meadow rk is mournful, and the goldfinch joyous, | Jj id the grosbeak prolonged of note. But I ?' ie libretto of nature is voluminous. Aro V m sad? You can hear from the bowers the *' ho of your grief. Are you glad? You can ' n' ar an echo of your happiness. Ara I cc >u thoughtful? Yon can hear that bi-'i will plunge ? you into deeper ni o.ound. Aro you weary? You ' V av catch tx restful air. So a.ho soring of rds aro administrative in all circumstances, id we would do well to havo a hymnology r ali changes of condition. You may sing mr woes into peace and rous-3 your joys to greater altitudes. Upon every condition body and soul let us try the power of song. ie multitudinous utterances of grove and chard and garden and forest suggest most lightl'ul possibilities. Home of the most deeply impressive songs I ever s'rng are family songs. They havo me down from generation to generation. 'U were sung to sleep in your infancy and ildhood by songs that will sing in your soul ?ever. Where was it, roy brother my or sis ?, that you heard tho family song?on the nks of tho Ohio, or tho Alabama, or * Androseoggin, or tho Connecticut, the Tweed, cr the Thames, or the ritan? That song at eventide, when you to tired out?indeed too tired to sleep, d you cried with leg ache, and you wero -ked and sung to sleep?you hear lt now. * soft voice from sweet lips, she as tired, rhaps more ttre.1 than you, but sho rocked, ri yoa slumbered. Oh. those family songs! Hollier?, be careful what you sing your ildren to sleep with. Let it bo nothing rolous or silly. Better have in it some ng of Christ and heaven. Better have in something that will help that boy thirty irs from now to bear up under tho nbardment of temptation. Better have in something that mil help that daughter tty years from now when upon her come oares of motherhood and! tho .agonies of eavement and the brutal treatment of on* o swore before high heaveD that he would Tish and protect. ?J bet fla eel HI] iel tall These family songs aro about nil we kaep of the old homestead. The houso where you were born will go into thehandsofstrangers. The garments that were carefully -kept, as relics will become moth eaten. The family Bible can go into the possession of only one of tho family. Tho lock ol gray hair may bo lost from the locket, and in a few years ail signs and momentocs of the old Homestead will be gone forever. But the .amily songs, those that we heard at two years of age, at five years of age. ut ten years of age, will bs Indestructible and at forty or fifty or sixty-ot seventy years Ot age will give Us a mighty boost over some rough place in the path ol our pilgrimage. Many years ago a group of white children were captured and carried off by the Indians. Years after, a mother who had lo3t two chil? dren in that capture, went among the Indi? ans, and there were many white children In line, but so long a time had passed the moth? er could not tell which were hers until she began to sing the old nursery song, and her two children immediately rushed up, shout? ing ? "Mamma !" "Mamma!" Yes. there is au immortality in a nursery song. Hear it. all you mothers, an immortality of power to rescue and save. What an occasion that must have been in Washington December 17. 1850. when Jennie Lind sang "Home, Sweet Home." the author of those words, John Howard Payne, seale.] before her. She had rendered her other fa? vorite songs : "Cista Diva" and her "Pluto Song," with fine effect, hut when she struck "Horne, Sweet Home," John Howard Payne rose under the power.and President Fillmore nnd Henry Clay and Daniel Webster and thi whole audience rose with him; Anything connected with home ransacks our entire nature with a holy power, and songs that get well started in the nursery or ly tho family hearth roll on after the lips t>at sung them are forever silent and tho ears that first heard them forever cease to hear. Be careful how you treat tho birds. Re? member they are God's favorites, and If you offend them you offend Him. He is so fond of their voices that there are forests where for a hundred miles no human foot has ever trod and no human ear has ever listened. Put off startling colors, which frighten thi winged songsters into silence or flight, and rmt on your moro sober attire and move noiselessly Into the woods farther and far? ther from the main road and have no conver? sation, for many a concert iriand out of doors has been ruined by persistent talkers, and then sit down a mossy bank? Where a wild stream with headlong shock Comes brawling clown a bed ot rock. And after perhapsa half an hour o' intense solitude there will be a tap of a beak on a ? tree branch far up, sounding like the tap of a musical baton, and then first thero will be solo, followed by a duet or quartet, and after? ward by doxologies In all tho treo tops and amid nil the branches, and if you have a Bible along with you and you can without rustling the leaves, turn to the one hun? dred and forty-eighth Psalm of David and read, 'Traise the Lord, beasts and all e.ittle, creeping things and flying fowl," and then turn over quietly to my text and read, "By them shall tho fowls of tho heaven have their habitation, which sing among tho branches," or if under the power of the bird voices you are transported, as when Doctor Wo'rgan played so powerfully on the organ at St. John's that Richard Cecil said he was in such blesi3d bewilderment he could not find in his Bible the first chapter of Isaiah, though he leafed Iho book over and over, and you 6hall bo so overcome with forest harmony that you cannot find tho Psalms of David, never mind, for God will speak to you so mightily lt will mnke no difference whether you hear His voice from the printed pago or the vibrating throat of ono of His plumed creatures. While this summer more than usual out of doors let us have what my text suggests, an out of doors religion. What business had David, with all the advantages of costly relig? ious service nnd smoking incense on ihe al? tar, to bo listening to the chantresses among the treo branches? Ah ! he wanted to make himself and all who should come after him more alert and more worshipful amid the sweet sounds and beautiful sights of the natural world. There is an old church that needs to be rededicated. It is older than St. Paul'.- or St. Peter's or St. Mark's cr St. Sophia's or St. Isaac's. It ta the cathedral of nature. That is the church in which the ser? vices of the millennium will be held. Tho buildings fashioned out of stone and brick and mortar will not hold thc people. Again the mount of Olives will be the pulpit. Again the Jordan will be tho baptis.ry. Again Iho mountiins will be the galleries. A?ain the skiea will ho the blue ceiling. Again the sunrise will be the front door and tho sunset tho back loor of that temple. Again tho ?lomls will be the upholstery and the norning mist the Incense. Again the rees will be tho organ loft where "the fowls of heaven have their hab? itation, which sing among the tranches." St. Francis d Assisi preached a sermon to birds and pronounced a bened.ic ion upon them, but all birds preach to us, ind their benediction is almost supernal. In the time of Edward IV no one waa illowed to own tx swan exeept ho were a -ins-'s son or had considerable estate. Through .00 or 200 years of lifo that bird w.is said lever to utter anything like music until its ast moment came, and thpn lifting its ?rested beauty it would pour forth a long of almost matchless thrill re lOUndlng through the groves. And ;o. although the struggles of life may hr) oo much for us and we may lind it hard to ing at all, when the last hour comes to you ind me, may there be a radiance from above ind a glory seitling round that shall enable is lo utter a song on the wing! of which wo hall mount to where the musio never ceases ind the raptures never die.
