11 For 25 years I have never missed taking Ayer's Sarsaparilla every spring. It cleanses my blood, makes me feel strong, and does me good in every way." ? John P. Hodnette, Brooklyn, N.Y. Pure and rich blood carries new life to every part of the body. You are invigorated, refreshed. You feel anxious to be active. You become strong, steady,courageous. That's what Ayer's Sarsaparilla will do for you. $1.00 a bottle. All druggists. Ask your doctor what lie thinks of Ayer's Sarsaparilla. He knows all about this grand old family medicine. Follow his advice and we will be satisfier!. J. C. Ayer Co., Lowell, Mass. Ncwspap- rn in Paris. New York is pretty well supplied with newspapers. I doubt if capitalists could he persuaded that additional ones would he good investments. But so far as mere numbers arc concerned, our pa? pers are only a tithe of what we find in Paris. 'J'here arc about 2,600 organs of the press in the French capital, 163 of which are political journals. In this rountry nothing is a newspaper unless it issues daily. Of political dailies in Paris there are 7Q. of tri-weeklies I, of week? lies 73. of bi-monthlies 6, of monthlies 2 and of annuals 1. Of the whole number 122 arc Republican, 31 are Conservative and io cannot be classified. The reviews number 10 weekly, 60 monthly, 31 bi? monthly, 26 quarterly, 28 are issued six times a year and 11 appear at irregular intervals. Napoleon sup? pressed several hundred newspapers, leaving only thirteen in existence during his reign. There arc 500 papers in Lon? don. .enator Tettus' Library. Senator Pettus was quoting Scripture to some of his colleagues in the cloak? room thc other day. ''How in the world do you liL.ipen to be so familiar with thc Bible?" asked one of the audience. "I went to California in 1849,'' replied the Senator, smiling, "and I took a complete library in my kit. lt comprised the Bible, Shakespeare and Bobbie Burns. You'll find I am pretty familiar with all three." A little change in the pocket is better than a decided change in the weather. \ Nurses' Experience. Medical men say that a good nurse in a difficult case is better than med? icine, but when we can get a good nurse and good medicine, the patient stands a much better chance of re? covery. The few words of advice given below by nurse Eliza King, are well worthy the attention of all readers: " I have constantly used St. Jacobs Oil in the various situations I have occupied as nurse, and have invariably found it excellent in all cases requiring outward application, such as sprains, bruises, rheumatic affections, neuralgia, etc. In- cases of pleurisy it is an excellent remedy?well rubbed in. I ran strongly recommend it after several years' use and experience. It should be in every household." Sister Carolina, St. Andrew's Hospital, writes: ** I have found St. Jacobs Oil a most efficacious remedy io gout; also in sprains and bruises. Indeed, we cannot say Loo much in its praise, and our doctor is ordering it constantly-." Small crops, unsalable veg? etables, result from want of Potash. "Vegetables arc especially fond of Potash.

Christianity and the Intellect-Can You Get Along Without lt. Washington, D. C.-In this discourse Ut. lalmage advocates the idea that the Christian religion is as good for this world as the next, and will help us to do any? thing that ought to be done at all; I Tim? othy iv, 8, "Godliness is profitable unto all things, having promise of the life that now is and of that which is to come." There is a gloomy and passive way of waiting for events to come upon us, and there is a heroic way of geing out to meet them, strong in God and fearing nothing. When the body of Catiline was found on the battlefield, it was found far in advance of all _iis troops and among the enemy, and the best way is not for us to lie down and let the events of life trample over us, but to go forth in a Christian spirit deter? mined to conquer. You are expecting pros? perity, and I am determined, so far as I have anything to do with it, that you shall not be disappointed, and, therefore, I pro? pose, as God may help me, to project upon vour attention a new element of success. You have in the business firm frugality, patience, industry, perseverance, economy ?a very strong business firm?but there needs to be one member added, mightier than them all, and not a silent partner either, the one introduced by my text, "Godliness, which is profitable unto all things, having the promise of the life that now is as well as of that which i3 to come." I suppose you are all willing to admit that godliness is important in its eternal relations, but perhaps some of you say, "AH I want is an opportunity to 6ny a , prayer before I die, and all will be well." There are a great many people who sup? pose that if they can finally get safely out of this world into a better world they will have exhausted the entire ad%'antage of our holy religion. They talk as though re? ligion were a mere nod of recognition which wc arc to give to the Lord Jesus on cur way to a heavenly mansion; as though it were an admission ticket, of no use ex? cept to give in at the door of heaven. And there are thousands of people who have great admiration for a religion of the shroud and a religion of the coffin and a religion of the cemetery who have no ap? preciation of a religion for the bank, for the farm, for the factory, for the ware? house, for the jeweler's shop, for the office. Now, while I would not throw any slur on a post-mortem religion, I want to-day to eulogize an ante-mortem religion. A relig? ion that is of no use to you while you live will be of no use to you when you die. "Godliness is profitable unto all things, having promise of the life that now is as well as of that which is to come." And I have always noticed that when grace is very low in a man's heart he talks a great deal in prayer meetings about deaths and about coffins and about graves and about churchyards. I have noticed that the healthy Christian, the man who is living near to God and is on the straight road to heaven, is full of jubilant satisfaction and talks about the duties of this life, under? standing well that if God helps him to live right He will help him to die right. Now, in the first place, I remark that godliness is good for a man's physical health. I do not mean to say that it will restore a broken down constitution or drive rheumatism from the limbs or neural? gia from the temples or pleurisy from the side, but I do mean to say that it gives one such habits and puts one in such con? dition as are most favorable for physical health. That 1 believe, and that I avow. Everybody knows that buoyancy of spirit is good physical advantage. Gloom, unrest, dejection, are at war with every pulsation of the heart and with every res? piration of the lungs. They lower the vi? tality and slacken the circulation, while exhilaration of spirit pours the very balm of heaven through all the currents of life. The sense of insecurity which sometimes hovers over an unregenerate man or pounces upon him with the blast of ten thousand trumpets of terror is most deplet? ing and most exhausting, while the feeling that all things are working together for our good now and for our everlasting wel? fare is conducive to physical health. You will observe that godliness induces industry, which is the foundation of good health. There is no law of hygiene that ?will keep a lazy man well. Pleurisy will stab him, erysipelas will burn him, jaun? dice will discolor him, gout will cripp.'e him, and the intelligent physician will not prescribe antiseptic or febrifuge or anodyne, but saws and hammers and yardsticks and crowbars and pick? axes. There is no such thing as good physical condition without positive work of 6ome kind, although you should sleep on down of swan or ride in carriage of softest upholstery or have on your table all the luxuries that were poured from the wino vats of Ispahan and Shiraz. Our re? ligion says: "Away to the bank, away to the field, away to the shop, away to the factory! Do something that wil enlist all the energies of your body, mind and soul!" "Diligent in business, fervent in spirit, serving the Lord," while upon the bare back of the idler and the drone comes down the sharp lash of the apostle as he cays, "If any man will not work, neither shell he eat." Oh, how important is this day, when so much is said about anatomy and physio? logy and therapeutics and some new style of medicine is ever and anon springing upon the world, that you should under? stand that the highest school of medicine is the school of Christ, which declares that "godliness is profitable unto all things, having the promise of the life that now is as well as of that which is to come." .0 if you start out two men in the world with equal physical health, and then one of them ?4iall get the religion of Christ in his heart and the other shall not get. it, the one who becomes a son of the Lord Al? mighty will live the longer. "With long life .viii I satisfy him and show him My salvation." Again I remark that godliness ia good for the intellect. I know some have sup? posed thot just as soon as a man enters into the Christian life his intellect goes into a bedwarfing process. So far from that, religion will give new brilliancy to the intellect, new strength to the imagina? tion, new force to the will and wider switi? to all the intellectual faculties. Christianity is the great central fire at which philosophy has lighted its brightest torch. The religion of Christ is the fountain out of which learning has dipped its clear? cut draft. The Helicon poured forth no such inspiring waters as those which flow from under the throne of God clear as crystal. Religion has given new energy to poesy, weening in Dr. Young's "Night Thoughts," teaching in Cowper's "Task," flaming in Charles Wesley's hymns and rushing with archangelic splendor through Milton's "Paradise Lost." The religion of Christ has hung in studio and in gallery of art and in Vatican the best pictures?Titian's "As? sumption," Raphael's "Transfiguration,'' Rubens's "Descent From the Cross,'"' Claude's "Burning Rush" and Angelo's "Last Judgment." Religion has made thc best music of the world?Haydn's "Crea? tion," Handel's "'Messiah," Mozart's "Re? quiem." Is it possible that a religion which builds such indestructible monu? ments, and which lifts its ensign on the highest proniontoreis of worldly power can have any effect upon a man's intellect but elevation? Now T commend f.odline.s3 as thc best mental discipline, better than belles lettre.. to purify the taste, better than mathemat? ics to harness the mind to all intricacy and elaboration, better than logic to marshal the intellectual forces for onset and vic? tory. Again I remark that godliness is profit? able for one's disposition. Lord Ashley, before he went into a great battle, was heard to offer this prayer: "O Lord, i shall be very busy to-day! ff I forget Thee, for? get me not." Willi such a Christian diopo sition as that a man is independent of ai) circumstances. Our piety will have a tinge of our natara] temperament. If a man be cro.s and sour and fretful naturally, after he becomes a Christian he will always have to be armed against the rebellion of those evil inclina? tions. ._ _. But religion has turned thc wildest na? tures. It lias turned fretfulness into grat? itude, despondency into good cheer, and those who were hard and ungovernable and uncompromising have been made pli? able and conciliatory. Good resolution, reformatory effort, will not effect the change, lt takes a mightier arm and a mightier hand to bend evil hab? its than the hand that bent the bow of Ulysses, and it takes a stronger lasso than ever held the buffalo on the prairie. A manufacturer cares but very little for a stream that slowly runs through the meadow; but values a torrent that leaps from rock to rock and rushes with mad energy through the valley and out toward the sea. Along that river you will find fluttering shuttles and grinding mill and flashing water wheel. And a nature the 6wiftc3t, the most rugged and the most tremondous?that is the nature that God turns into greatest usefulness. Religion will give an equipoise of spirit. It will keep vou from ebullitions of tem? per, and you know a great many fine busi? nesses have been blown to atoms by bad temper. It will keep you from worriment about frequent loss; it will keep you back from squandering and from dissipation; it will give you a kindness of spirit which will be easily distinguished from that mere store courtesy which shakes hands violent? ly with you, asking about thc health of your family, when there is no anxiety to know whether your child is well or sick, but the anxiety is to know how many dozen cambric pocket handkerchiefs you will take and pay cash down. It will pre? pare you for the practical duties of every? day life. In New York City there was a merchant, hard in his dealings with his fellows, who had written over his banking house or his counting house room, "No compromise." Then when some merchant got in a crisis and went down?no fault of his, but a con? junction of evil circumstances?and all the other merchants were willing to compro? mise?they would take seventy-five cents on the dollar or fifty cents or twenty cent* ?coming to this man last of all, he said: "No compromise. I'll take 100 cents on the dolhr, and I can afford to Avait." Well, thc wheel turned, and after awhile that man was in a crisis of business, and he sent out his agent to compromise, and the agent said to the merchants, "Will you take fifty cents on the dollar?" "No." "Will you take anything?" "We'll take lOOccnls on the dollar. No compromise." And the man who wrote that inscription over his counting house door died in destitution. Oh, we want more of the kindness of the gospel nnd the spirit of love in our business enterprises! How many young men have found in the religion of Jesus Christ a practical help? How many there are to day who could tes? tify out of their own experience that god? liness is profitable for the life that now ia! There were times in their business career when they went here for help and there for help and yonder for help and got no help until they knelt before the Lord cry? ing for His deliverance, and the Lord res? cued them. In a bank not far from New Yoric?a village bank?an officer could not balance his accounts. He had worked at them day after day, night after night, and he was sick nigh unto death as a result. He knew that he had not taken one farthing from that bank, but somehow, for some reason, inscrutable then, the accounts would not balance. The time rolled on and the morn? ing of the day when the books should pas. under the inspection of the other officers arrived, and he felt himself in awful peril, conscious of his own integrity, but unable j to prove that integrity. That morning he | went to the bank early, and he knelt down before God and told the whole story of mental anguish, and he said: "0 Lord, I have done right, I have preserved my in? tegrity, but* here I am about lo bc over? thrown unless Thou shouldst come to my rescue. Lord, deliver mc." And for one hour he continued the prayer before God, and then be arose and went to an old blot? ter that he had forgotten all about. He opened it, and there lay a sheet of figures which he only needed to add to another line of figures?some line of figures he had forgotten and knew not where he had laid them?and the accounts were balanced, and the Lord delivered him. You are an infi? del if you do not believe it. The Lord de? livered him. God answered his prayer, as He will answer your prayer, oh, man of business, in every crisis when you come to Him. Now, if this be so, then I am persuaded, as you are, of the fact that the vast major? ity of Christians do not fully test the value of their religion. They are like a farmer in California with 15,000 acres of good Avheat land and culturing only a quarter of an acre. Why do you not go forth and make the religion of Jesus Christ a practical affair every day of your business life and all this year, beginning now, and to-morrow morn? ing putting into practical effect this holy religion and demonstrating that godliness is profitable here as well as hereafter? How can you get along without this re? ligion? Is your physical health so good you do not want this divine tonic? Is your mind so clear, so vast, so comprehensive, that you do not want this divine inspira? tion? Is your worldly business so thor? oughly established that you have no use for that religion which has been the help and deliverance of tens of thousands of men in crises of worldly trouble? And ii what I have said is true then you see what a fatal blunder it is when a man adjourn* to life's expiration the uses of religion. A man who postpones religion to sixty year., of age gets religion fifty years too late, ile may get into the kingdom of God by final repentance, but what cnn compensate him for a whole lifetime unalleviated and un? comforted? You want religion to-day in the training of that child. You will want religion to-morrow in dealing with that customer. You wanted religion yesterday to curb your temper. Is your arm etroi.;; enough to beat your way through thc floods? Can you, without being incased in the mail of God's eternal help, go forth amid thc assault of all hell's sharpshoot? ers? Can you walk alone across these crumbling graves and amid these gaping earthquakes? Can you. waterlogged and mast shivered, outlive the gale? Oh, hotl many there have heen who, postponing thc religion of Jesus Christ, have plunged intc mistakes they could never correct, although they lived sixty years after, and like ncr pents crushed under cart wheeis draggin. their mauled bodies under the rocks to die So these men have fallen under the whee! of awful calamity, while a vast multitude of others have taken the religion of Jesin Christ into everyday life, and, first, in practical business affairs, and, second, or the throne of heavenly triumph, have illus trated while angels iooked on and a uni? verse approved, the glorious truth thal "godliness is profitable unto all things. having the promise of the life which now i? as well as of that which is to come." [Copyright, 1902, L. Klop-ch.] Newest Fushioiuiblo Folly. Leaders of the fashionable set. at Monte Carlo have r.dopted the fad cf wearing live monkeys as boas. When you get your monkey ask for the "ouistiti." This is black and white, with a tail twice as big as its body. The tall is beautiful and is wound around the neck to meet the body part, which sits propped np on the left shoulder. Ladles train their monkey . to remain on their shoulders until in loors, when at a word they spring lo he floor, unwrapping their fails as ..hey fall. Each monkey naturally looks after its one tail, so one doesn't have to be bothered by looking after one's boa. Some ladies have silver collars, with their names- on, wound round the monkey'., neck. Fun for Schoolboys. The German Navy League has ar? ranged for several thousand school? boys to 3pend two days with the fleet under ?xpert guidance. They will be instructed in the workings of war? ships. They will come in relays, beginning each September, when near? ly the whole German fleet will be at Kiel. The object of the plan is to make patriots of the lads. COMMERCIAL REVlfeW. General Trade Conditions. R. G. Dun & Co.'s weekly review of trade says: Unsettled weather was the most unsatisfactory feature of the busi? ness situation. Preparations for an enor? mous spring trade continue undimin? ished. Not only is there no improvement to be recorded in thc iron and steel out? look, but floods in the Pittsburg region added to the pressure by completely clos? ing many plants and damaging much costly machinery. Supplies of coke failed to increase because the railways were badly disorganized, and the net result was a week of light output when re? quirements were notably heavy. Leather is weaker and hides declined another fraction. Cotton goods are well sus? tained. Less activity is reported in tho market for woolens, buyers having ap? parently their first round of orders. All staples steadied and some rose sharply. It was natural for grain to hold firm when wheat receipts at the West were 2,899,344 bushels, compared with 3,747,952 last year, while arrivals of corn were but 2,001,914 bushels, against 5,020, 438 a year ago. Exports of wheat, flour included, were 4,174^,894 bushels, against 3,185,032 in the previous week, and 3>7I5. 930 a year ago. Failures for thc week numbered 176 ii} thc United States, against 208 last yes.r, and 17 in Canada, against 26 last year. LATEST QUOTATIONS.
