How Character Is Made and Shown.
He was known to them In the break
ing of bread. Luhe, xxiv.. 35.
There are maajfL wonderful and
glorious passages lfj the New Testa
ment, but few more pathetic to my ap
preheMJon than that little story of the
walk djjKimnatis, the desclplSS not re
. diiiiizlnj; llie Maswr. while yet their
HeaWtl lu: ne, within them us they
lalketl with Him by the way. And
the story reaches its climax of beauty,
unfolds the sweetest flower of its sig
nificance where the dliclples, rehears
ing the details of the event, tell BOW
.le.stis "was Known to them in the
breaking of bread."
How interesting and suggestive that
He was not known to them by any
sign that marked Him as the Messiah
ur in any way pre-eminent, but by one
of the simplest things He had ever
done in their presence. One like3 to
think of their recalling something
pleasant in His manner, some happy,
grateful look upon His face, as if He
were Qod'l minister in answering the
prayer. "Give us this day our daily
bread" which He had taught them
when they asked Him how to pray.
Perhaps the time when He sat at table
with them was the time when the
consciA burden of His ministry was
le:.,t oppressive and He unbent Him
self in the most intimate and friendly
It is very lovely to bo thought of
when alive and remembered when
dead as doing kind and pleasant
things. Among the thousands of exag
gerated and pretentious epitaphs in
Mount Auburn there is one which
She was so pleasant.
I think it one of the most enviable.
And there are many women and as
many men who earn it perfectly. They
do not strive nor cry, but wherever
they go and whatever they do they
diffuse an atmosphere of comfort and
content. They make sick people well
and sad people merry. They dispel
the gloom from anxious hearts and the
fevered pulse is quieted at the cool
fountain of their unfailing cheer.
A great .nany persons are known to
theiraYiilies and friends in the same
way as Jesus was known in the New
Testament story by their behavior
at the morning, noonday, or evening
meal. "Joy of the street," says the
Provencal proverb, "curse of the
home." It is proverb which fits
many people like a glove. These are
men who spend all their pleasantness
and gayety on their companions In
business and at the club and have only
four looks and cross words at home.
There are women who can "smile and
sinile" at the afternoon reception and
the evening party, and be anything but
agreeable in the uneventful round of
their domestic cares. Hut what men
and women are in this uneventful
found gees far not only to rdiow their
true character, but to make it what it
is for better or worse.
Francis Paeon said: "God hangs the
greatest weight upon the smallest
wires." That would be dangerous me
( liatiitJC were not the wires so many
that Nrthelr aggregate they are of as
great strt :igth as that of the cables on
which our great suspension bridges
swing in air. The atomic theory may
be true or false in physics: it is cer
tainly true upon H spiritual plane.
All great actions, characters and
events are prepared for in silence and
)bRcurity by innumerable little seem
ingly unimportant actions, refusals,
acceptance, disposition. The roots
:f a great character spread out like the
root., of v. greut tree, ten thousand
filaments drawing their virtue from
the dark earths and secret springs, and
vielding each its proper increment to
that great strength with which the
tree or character flings wide its
branches and defies the stcrm. Men
and women are best known as they are
most surely fashioned by such little
seemingly petty actions as the break
ing of bread or the making of it. or
rhel.s necessary for the honest
anting of it, because the whole char
acter rushes into expression in every
part, because every part reports the
tountlness or unsoundness of the whole
:o which it has contributed its due pro
portion of those elements which in
:heir aggregation and eo-ordlnati' m

The Constant Christian.
Constancy, stability among Chris
lans, is currency above par. The exi
gencies of the Lord's work ore such
hat we cannot afford to be unstable.
The unstable Christian is one of the
greatest stumbling blocks in the way
f sinners. Thousands of men out
ilde the church give this as the main
eason for their active opposition or
ipathetic indifference to Christianity.
The unstable Christian I a reproach
D bis profession, a reproach to bit
church and a reproach to his Christ.
"onstancy, stability, is one of the
Christian worker's strongest assets.
Many of us may not be able to en
gineer vast enterprises in the church,
many of us may not have the natural
powers and gifts of some of our breth
ren, many of us may not have enthu
siastic, hopeful and positive natures;
but there is not one of us, not one but
can be constant in our efforts as Chris
tians in our own sphere, if we will
take ourselves and our profession seri
ously. It ig not child's play to be a
representative of Christ. It is the
work of a man and worth that man's
highest thought and best endeavor.
Nothing among the so-called negative
vices undermines character like insta
bility. Nothing so stamps a man as
us. less to his church, to his commun
ity and to his Christ as inconstancy.
On the other hand, nothing tends to
build up a noble and exalted charac
ter so much as eonstapey and faith
fulness; nothing will be more likely
to raise a man's usefulness to his high
est notch than these qualities. To be
inconstant, unstable, that were of the
earth, earthy; but to be uniformly
true and steadfast, that were of Christ,
Through Sorrow's Gate.
There are many things, besides sor
row's self, that come through sor
row's gate gentleness, tact, sympa
thy, strength, beeautiful traits of char
acter, which seem to find no other
mode of entrance into life. Long for
unclouded joy as we may, it still re
mains true that few of us Would
choose for our most valued friend one
who has never suffered. The eyes that
have not known tears must needs lack
something of tenderness. The heart
that never lias been torn with an
guish and loss has never sounded its
own depths, and cannot measure those
of another. The soul grows strong
through storm and conflict, if it ever
mows strong at all, and, however sweet
a nature may be. we find it incomplete
and unsatisfying if it has never known
the softening, hallowing touch of
grief. There arc dark pages in our
lives where we would gladly have
changed the story if we could. There
are wounds that still ache, and losses
that even yet are hard to bear; but
however we may feel about the sor
row itself, there are few of us who
would be willing to give up all that
ii brought and taught us to be just
what we were before it touched us.
There are some precious gains that
come through sorrow's gate.
Rejoicing in Tribulation.
This is contrary to the flesh, but in
harmony with grace. Men naturall
shun what is disagreeable and irk
some. To endure tribulation with joy,
it must be of a kind which has not
come upon us by our own folly and
sin. If we bring irouble and hardship
upon ourselves by our own wrong
doing. WO should mourn and repent,
rather than rejoice. Hut if for fidel
ity to truth and devotion to Christ we
suffer, then we can rejoice that we
are accounted worthy to enter intc
the fellowship of his sufferings. Tc
such Christ speaks: "He thou faithfr.'
unto death, and I will give thee 8
crown of life."
Such as boar trial for Jesus patient
ly and joyfully, thereby give a good
and effectual testimony of the reality
and beauty and helpfulness of the
Christian religion. The world has re
spect and reverence for a Chiistiun
who is himself a living example of the
faith he professes. Put the undegen
crate despise hypocrisy in religion
and take a discriminating view ol
practical Christianity as they read it
in the life of professed followers ol
Prayer must be addressed to the
Father. As soon as we niter that sa
cred name the divine nature responds
and. to put it vividly, is on the alert
to '.ear what we desire. A little child
cannot utter a sigh however slight, a
however sanothered. without
awakening the quick attention of its
mother; and at the first whisper of
our Father's name He is at hand to
hear and bless. Alas, we have too
often grieved His Holy Spirit by a
string of selfish petitions or a numbef
of formal plat itudes. To the wonder
ment of angels we thus fritter away
the most precious and sacred oppor
tunities. Be still, then, before you
pray to consider what to ask. Order
your prayers for presontat ion and be
sure to begin the blessed interview
with word.'- of sincere and loving ap
preciation and devotion. Itev. F. B.
It is the salvation of a noble nature
to have soive tSSh of self-denial, some
motive for self-'-acrifice left, when all

upon his whole earthly career but aa
a task of which the reward, though
not given here, is as priceless as it is

John Chinaman Haa at Leaat One
Cause for Congratulation.
The impassivity of John Chinaman's
countenance is now at least partially
explained. He has no nerves in his
teeth. This interesting bit of lnfor
mation comes 'way from Oregon,
where the dentists have been having
a state meeting. One of the speakers,
who makes no claims to "painless
dentistry," said he had tinkered with
the teeth of many Chinamen, and
never once had known of them to
whimper. The only thing in regard
to which they show the least anxiety
is to "secure any teeth they have
pulled, which they want to take back
or send back to China in order that
they may have a full set when they
are reincarnated." A Chinaman would
bo a good subject for a "painless den
tist" to use in a public demonstration.

Of Vfioe Interest.
Breed, Wis.. July IS Special
Charles Y. Peterson, Justice of tho
Peace for Oconto Co., has delivered
a Judgment that is of interest to the
whole United States. Put briefly, that
judgment is, "Uodd's Kidney Pills are
thd best Kidney medicine on the mar
And Mr. Peterson gives his reason
for this Judgment. He says: "Last
winter 1 had an aching pain In my
back which troubled me very much.
I the morning 1 could hardly straight
en my back. I did not know what it
was but an advertisement led me to
try Dodd'3 Kidney Pills. After taking
one box I can only say they have done
more for me than expected as I feel
as well now as ever I did before."
Pain in the back is one of the first
symptoms of Kidney disease. If not
cured by Dodd's Kidney Pills it may
develop into Bright's Disease, Dia
betes. Rheumatism or some of tho
other deadly forms of Kidney Disease.
German Love of Sauerkraut.

Settled the Case With Her.
Many great discoveries have been
made by accident and things better
than gold mines have been found in
this way, for example when even the
accidental discovery that coffee is the
real cause of one's sickness proves of
most tremendous value because it lo
cates the cause and the person has
then a chance to get well.
"For over 25 years," says a Missouri
woman, "1 suffered untold agonies in
my stomach aud even the best phy
sicians disagreed as to the cause with
out giving me any permanent help,
different ones saying it was gastritis,
indigestion, neuralgia, etc., so I
dragged along from year to year, al
ways half sick, until finally I gave up
all hopes of ever being well again.
"When taking dinner with a friend
one day she said she had a new drink
which turned out to be Postura and
I liked it so well I told her I thought
I would stop coffee for awhile and use
it, which I did.
"So for teres months we had Pos
tttSD in place of coffee without ever
having one of my old spells but was
always healthy and vigorous.
"Husband kept saying he was con
finced it was coffee that caused those
spells, but even then I wouldn't be
lieve it until one day we got out of
Postum and as we lived two miles
from town I thought to use the eoffeo
we had in the house.
"Tho result of a week's use of cof
fee again was that I had another ter
rible apell of agony and distress, prov
ing that it was the coffee and nothing
else. That settled it and I said good
!) . to Corfee forever and since then
Postum alone has been our hot meal
"My friends all say I am looking
worlds better and rny complexion is
much improved. All the other mem
bers of our family have been benefit
ed, too, by Postum in place of the old
drink, coffee." Name given by Postum

In a Dutch Village.
At Marken, a fishing village of Hol
land, few men are to be -seen, as they
are nearly always out at sea in their
boats. Those whom one does see are
like Dutchmen in a play, in queer
headgear, in the most voluminous
knickerbockers that ever delighted the
heart of a caricaturist and having on
chattering wooden shoes which are, as
a coasting skipper once said, the
surest preventive of colds and of "cold
feet" (which he spoke of as if they
were a disease) to be found in the
world. Clumsy enough these Dutch
fisher folk look, but they are handy in
a boat. But there is agriculture, too,
of a simple kind at Marken. Not a
man usually is to be seen working
in the bay harvest or at other employ
ment in the fields. The women do
the farm work.
Low Wages Paid in Egypt.
The population of Egypt is about
8,000,000, and most of the people are
engaged in a sort of desultory cam
paign against mother earth to forco
her to yield enough grain for tho
mere sustenance of lazy life. The la
bor supply is large and dilatory; the
wages are correspondingly low. In
upper Egypt one can hire farm la
borers, or loafers, at 9 cents a day,
and in lower Egypt at 13 cents, the
laborer, or loafer, to board himself.
Theso laborers, or loafers, want no
money in pay, but will take part of

In 1865, Durham was a village of a

plundered the place, they got a quan

it so well that they hardly got home
before they began to write to Durham

men of enough enterprise to see the
DPIKjrtunity which this situation of
fered them. It was not long before
Durham salesmen were selling Dur

Among the numerous superstitions
of the Cossacks there is none stronger
than the belief that they will enter
Heaven in a better state if they are
personally clean at the time they are
killed. Consequently, before an ex

with scrupulous care, dress themselves
in clean garments, and put on the
best they have. This superstition is
not confined to the Cossacks alone,
but is widely prevalent in all branches
Ol the Russian army.

INFIRM, BUT LONG LIVED.
English Vicar Disappointed the Buyer
of His Living.
In England the purchase of an ad
vowson, or tho right to succeed to a
vacant church office, Is not uncom
mon. There is a story told of a coun
try vicarage whose incumbent -was,
:hough but middle-aged, very Infirm.
His tenure of the position being thus
uncertain, the living was advertised
for sale. The auctioneer who at the
tlmo had the disposal of all church
preferments mentioned as a special
advantage to intending purchasers
that tho holder could not last long.
To put this prospect to the test sev
eral possible buyers went down to
the village to look over the vicar. A
father and son attended the Sunday
services at the church. A servant led
the ailing vicar, but the latter man
aged to get through a very earnestly
delivered sermon lasting half an hour.
In the afternoon he again conducted
service, baptized children and
preached for fifty minutes. Service
in the evening was to follow. But
the man who had come to buy had
seen enough. "My son," he said, "that
old cock ain't a-goin' yet; I am," and
he forthwitn departed. In the end a
young parson bought the place for
himself. The invalid outlived by
twenty years the man who had bought
his living; he lasted fifty years be
yond the sale and died of sheer old
age at 92.
