If Ton Do Not Fear God You May One I:iy F.Ti-i-ct to See the Handwriting on the Wall Yourself A Powerful Dis course. Brooklyn, Jan. 25. Dr. Talmage preached the following sermon this morning in the Academy of Music in this city, and he repeated it to-night at The Christian Herald service in the New York Academy of Music. His text was Daniel v, SO: "In that night was lielshazzar, the king of the Chaldeans, slain." After the site of Babylon had been selected, two million of men were em ployed for the construction of the wall and" principal works. The walls of the city were sixty miles in circumference. They were surrounded by a trench, out of which had been dug the material for the construction of the city. There were twenty-five gates of solid brass on each side of the square city. Between every two gates a great watch tower sprang up into the heavens. From each of the twenty-five gates on either side a street ran straight through to the gate on the other side, so that there were fifty streets, each fifteen miles long, which gave to the city an appearance of wonderful regu larity. The houses did not join each other on the ground, and between them were gardens and shrubbery. From housetop to housetop bridges swung, over which the inhabitants were accustomed to pass. A branch of the Euphrates went through the city, over which a bridge of marvelous structure was thrown and under which a tunnel ran. To keep the river from overflowing the city in times of freshet a great lake was arranged to catch the surplus, in which the water was kept as in a reservoir until times of drought, when it was sent streaming down over the thirsty land. A palace stood at each end of the Euphrates bridge; one palace a mile and three-quarters in compass, and the other palace seven and a half miles in circumference. The wife of Nebu chadnezzar, having been brought up among the mountains of Media, could not stand it in this flat country . of Babylon. and so to please her Nebuchad nezzar had a mountain four hundred feet high built in the midst of the city. This mountain was surrounded by ter races, for the support of which great arc lies were lifted On the top of these arches flat stones were laid ; then a layer of reeds and bitumen; then two rows of bricks, closely cemented; then thick sheets of lead, upon which the soil was placed. The earth here deposited was so deep that the largest trees had room to anchor their roots. All the glory of the flowery tropics was spread out at that tremendous height, until it must have s. i iued to one below as though the clouds were all in blossom, and the verv sky leaned on the shoulder of the cedar. At the top an engine was con structed which drew the water from the Euphrates, far below, and made it sp;ut up amid this garden of the skies. All this to please his wife I I think she must have been pleased. A CITY OF KKYKLIXGS. In the midst of this city stood also the temple of Belus. One of its towers w:ss one-eighth of a mile high, and on the top of it an observatory, which gave the astronomers great advantage, as, t ing at so great a height, one could e;isily talk with the stars. This temple was full of cups and statues and cen sers, all of gold. One image weighed a. thousand Babylonish talents, which would be equal to fifty-two million dol !rs AH this by day; but now night y, ::s about to come down on Babylon. The shadows of her two hundred and fifty towers began to lengthen. The Euphrates rolled on, touched by the fiery splendors of the setting sun, and pates of brass, burnished and glittering, opened and shut like doors of flame. The hanging gardens of Babylon, wet with the heavy dew, began to pour from starlit flowers and dripping leaf a fragrance for many miles around. The streets and squares were lighted for dance and frolic and promenade. The theatres and galleries of art invited the wealth and pomp and grandeur of the city to rare entertainments. Scenes of riot and wassail were mingled in every 6treet; godless mirth, and outrageous excess, and splendid w ickedness came to the king's palace to do their mightiest deeds of darkness. A royal feast to-niht at the king'3 p:.!aee! Rushing up to the gates are chariots, upholstered with precious cloths from Dedan, and drawn by fire eyed horses from Togarmah. that rear and neigh in the grasp of the chariot eers, while a thousand lords dismount, and women dressed in all the splen dors of Syrian emerald, and the color Landing of agate, and the chasteness of coral, and the somber glory of Ty ri;i:i purple, and princely embroideries brought from afar by camels across the desert, and by sliips of Tarshish across the sea. Open wide the gates and let the guests come in. The chamberlains and cup bearers are all ready. Hark to the rii.vi le of the robes, and to the carol of the music! Sjb the blaze of the jewels! Lift the. banners. Fill the cups. Clap the cymbals. Blow the trumpets. Let the night go by with song and dance and ovation, and let that Babylonish tongue be palsied that will not say, "Oh, King Bclshazzar, live forever!" XO COMMOS BANQUET. Ah ! my friends, it was not any com mon banquet to which these great peo ple came. All parts of the earth had i :X their richest viands to that table. 1 '.rackets and chandeliers flashed their light upon tankards of burnished gold. Fruits, ripe and luscious, in baskets of tiilv?r, entwined with leaves, plucked from royal conservatories. Vases, in Ja!d with emerald and ridged with ex quisite traceries, filled with nuts that were thrashed from forests of dis t.iut lands. Wine brought from the royal vats, foaming in the decanters arid bubbling in the chalices. Tufts of c;.-siaand frankincense wafting their sweetness from wall and table. Gor f! 'f;is banners unfolding in the breeze tli.it came through the opened window, bewitched with the perfume of hanging gardens. Fountains rising from inelos ures of ivory, in jets of crystal, to fall in clattering rain of diamonds and pearls. 8tatues of mighty men looking down from niches in the wall upon crowns nn.l shields brought from subdued em pire;;. Idols of wonderful work stand ing on pedestals of precious stones. Embroideries drooping about the win dows, and wrapping pillars of cedar, and drifting on floor inlaid with ivory and agate. Music mingling the thrum of harps, and the clash of cymbals, and the blast of trumpets in one wave of transport that went rippling along tho wall, and breathing amon.i the car- lands, and pouring down the corridors, ; and thrilling t'.ie souls of a thousand i b'l'inncf .s. The sig-iil is given, and tli ' ! I:. !:m, t!i? mighty men a . J v. j.ii. a of tlu laud, come around tlia tabio. Pour out tho wine! Let foam and bubble kiss the run I Hoist i every o.u hit eu;, ;ui 1 d.vik to the sentiment. "Oh. King Belsliarcar, live forever!" Beslarred headband and carcanet of royal beauty gleaia to tho uplifted chalicta, as again and again and again they are emptied. Away with caro from tho palace! Tear royal dignity to tatters! Four out more wine! Give us more light, wilder music, sweeter perfume 1 Lord shouts to lord, captain ogles to captain. Goblets clash, de canters rattle. There come in the vile song, and the drunken hiccough, and the slavering lip, and the guffaw of idiotic laughter bursting from the lips of princes, flushed, reeling, bloodshot; while mingling with it all I hear, "Iluzzal huzza! for tho great Belshaz zar!" LOOKl look! look! Yhat is that on the plastering of the wall? Is it a spirit? Is it a phantom? Is it God? Out of the black sleeve of the darkness a finger cf licry terror trembles through the air and comes to the wall, circling about as though it would write, and then, with a sharp tip of flame, engraves on the plastering the doom of the king. The music stops. Goblet falls from the nerveless grasp. There is a thrill. Thera is a start. There is a thousand voiced shriek of horror. Let Daniel ba brought in to read that writing. lie comes in. He reads it, "Weighed in the balance and found wanting." Meanwhile the Assyrians, who for two years had been laying siega to that city, took advantage of that carousal and came in. I hear the feet of the conquerors on the palace stairs. Massa cre rushes in with a thousand gleaming knives. Death bursts upon the scene, and I shut the door of that banqueting hall, for I do not want to look. There is nothing there but torn banners, and broken wreaths, and the slush of unset tankards, and the blood of murdered women, and the kicked and tumbled carcass of a dead king. For "in that night was Bclshazzar, the king of the Chaldeans, slain." I go on to learn that when God writes anything on the wall, a man had better read it as it is. Daniel did not misin terpret or modify the handwriting on the wall. It is all foolishness to expect a minister of the Gospal to preach al ways things that the people like or the peoplo choose. Young men, what shall I preach to you to-night? Shall I tell you of the dignity of human nature? Shall I tell you of the wonders that our race has accomplished ? "Oh! no," you say; "tell me the message that came from God." I will. If there is any handwriting on the wall it is this lesson, "Accept of Christ and be saved." I might talk of a groat many other things, but that is the message, and so I declare it. Jesus never flattered those to whom he preached. Ho said to thoso who did wrong, and who were offensive in his sight, "Ye generation of vipers! ye whited sepulchers ! how can y a escape the damnation of hell!" Paul the apostle preached before a man who was not ready to hear him preach. What subject did he take? Did he say, "Oh, you are a good man, a very line man, a very nobla man?" No; he preached of righteousness to a man who was unrighteous; of temperance to a man who was the victim of bad appetites; of the judgment to come to a man -who was unfit for it. So we must always declare the message that happens to come to us. Daniel must read it as it is. A minister preached before James I of England, who was James VI of Scotland. "What subject did he take? The king was noted all over the world for being unsettled and wa vering in his ideas. What did the min ister preach about to this man who was James I of Englaftd and James VI of Scotland? He took for his text James i, 6: "He that wavereth is like a wave of tho sea, driven with the wind and tossed." Hugh Latimer of fended the king by a sermon lie preached, and the king said, "Hugh Latimer, come and apologize." "I will," said Hugh Latimer. So the day was appointed, and the king's chapel was full of lords and dukes, and the mighty men and women of the coun try, for Hugh Latimer was to apolo gize. He began his sermon by saying: "Hugh Latimer, bethink thee! Thou art in the presence of thine earthly king, who can destroy thy body. But bethink thee, Hugh Latimer, that thou art in the presence of the King of heav en and earth, who can destroy both body and soul in hell fire." Then he preached with appalling directness at the king's crimes. THE HORROR OP THE ESDIXO. Another lesson that comes to us. There is a great difference between the opening of the banquet of sin and its close. Young man, if you had looked in upon the banquet in the first few hours you would have wished you had been invited there, and could sit at the feast. "Oh! the grandeur of Belshaz zar's feast!" you would have said, but yoa look in at the close of the banquet, and your blood curdles with horror. The king of terrors has there a ghast lier banquet, human blood is the wine and dying groans are the music. Sin has made itself a king in the earth. It has crowned itself. It has spread a banquet. It invites all the world to come to it. It has hung in its banqueting hall the spoils of all king doms and the banners of all nations. It has gathered from all music. It has strewn from its wealth the tables and the floors and arches. And yet how often is that banquet broken up, and how horrible is its end! Ever and anon there is a handwriting on the wall. A king falls. A great culprit is arrested. The knees of wickedness knock to gether. God's judgment, like an armed, host, breaks in upon the banquet, and that night is Belshazzar, the king of the Chaldeans, slain. Here is a young man who says: "I cannot see why they make such a fuss about tho intoxicating cup. Why, it is exhilarating! It makes me feel well. J. can talk better, think better, feel better. I cannot see why people have such a prejudice against it." A few years pass on, and ho wakes up and finds himself in the clutches of an evil habit which ho tries to break, but 'can not, and he cries out, "Oh, Lord God, help me!" It seems as though God would not hear his prayer, and in an agony of body and soul he cries out. "It biteth like a serpent, and it stingeth like an adder." How bright it was at the start 1 How black it was at the last! N Here is a man who begins to read corrupt novels. "They aro so charm ing," says he, "I will go out and see for myself whether all these things are so." He opens the gate of a sinful life. He goes in. A sinful sprite meets him with her wand. She waves her wand, and it is all enchantment. Why, it 6eems as if the angels of God had poured out phials of perfume in the atmosphere! As he walks on he finds the hills becoming more radiant with foliage, and the ravines more resonant with tho falling water. Oh, what a charming landscapo he sees! But that sinful sprite with her wand meets him again; but now she reverses the wand, and all the enchantment is gone. Tho cup is full of poison. Tho fruit turns to ashes. All the leaves of the bower are forked tongues of hissing serpents. The flowing fountains fall back in a dead pool, stenchful with corruption. The luring songs become curses and screams of demoniac laughter. Lost spirits gather about him, and feel for his heart, and beckon him on with: "Hail, brjthar! Hail, blasted spirit, hall !" Ho trie i to get out. lie comes to the froi.t door where he entered, and tries to pufch it back, but the door turns against him, and in tho jar of that shutting door ho hears these words. "This night is Belshazzar, the king of tho Chaldeans, slain." Sin may open bright as the morning. It ends dark as the night! DEATH AT THE FEAST. I learn further from this subject that Death sometimes breaks in upon a ban quet. Why did he not go down to the prisons in Babylon ? There were people there that would like to have died. I suppose there were men and women in torture in that city who would have welcomed Death. But ho comes to the palace, and just at tho time when the mirth is dashing to the tiptop pitch Death breaks in at the banquet. We have often seen the same thing illus trated. Here is a young man just come from college. He is kind. He is lov. ing. He is enthusiastic. Ho is elo quent. By one spring he may bound to heights toward which many men have been struggling for years. A pro fession opens before him. He is estab lished in the law. His friends cheer him. Eminent men encourage him. After a while you may see him stand ing in the United States senate or mov ing a popular assemblage by his elo quence, as trees are moved in a whirl wind. Some night he retires early. A fever is on him. Delirium, like a reck less charioteer, seizes tho reins of his intellect. Father and mother stand by, and see tho tides of his lifo going out to the great ocean. The banquet is coming to an end. The lights of thought and mirth and eloquence are being extinguished. Tho garlands are matched from the brow. The vision is gone. Death at the banquet. We saw the s?ir;e. thing, on a larger scale, illustrated at the last war in this country. Our whole nation had been sitting at a tiationat banquet north, south, cast and west. What grain was there but we grew it on our hills. What invention was there but our rivers must turn the new wheel and rattle the stranga shuttle. What warm furs but cur traders must bring them from the Arctic. What hsh but our nets must sweep them for the markets. What music but it must sing in our halls. What eloquence but ic must speak in our senates. Ho! to tho national banquet, reach ing from mountain to mountain, and from sea to sea ! To prepare that ban quet tho sheepfolds and tiie aviaries of the country sent their best treasures. The orchards piled up on the table their sweetest fruits. The presses burst cut with new wines. To sit at that table came the yeomanry of New Hampshire, and the lumbermen of Maine, and tho Carolinian from the rice fields, and the western emigrant from the pines of Oregon, and wo were all brothers brothers at a banquet. Suddenly tho feast ended. What meant those mounds thrown up at Chickamauga, Shiloh, Atlanta, Gettysburg, South Mountain? What meant those golden grain fields, turned into a pasturing ground for cavalry horses? What meant the corn fields guliied with the wheels of the heavy supply train? Why those rivers of tears, those lakes of blood? God was angry! Justice must coins. A hand writing on the wall ! Tho nation had been weighed and found wanting. Darkness! Darkness! Woe to the north ! Woe to the south ! Woe to the east ! Woe to tho west ! Death at the banquet ! THE DEATH OF THE WICKED. I have also to learn from the subject that the destruction of tho vicious and of those who despise God will be very sudden. Tho wave of mirth had dashed to the highest point when that Assyrian army broke through. It was unexpect ed. ' Suddenly, almost always, comes the doom of those who despise God and defy the laws of men. How was it at the deluge? Do you suppose it came through a long northeast storm, so that people for days before were sure it was coming? No; I suppose tho morning was bright ; that calmness brooded on the waters; that beauty sat enthroned on the hills, when suddenly the heav ens burst, and the mountains sank like anchors into the saa that dashed clear over the Andes and the Himalayas. Tho Red sea was divided. The Egyp tians tried to cross it. There could be no danger. The Israelites had just gone through. Where they had gone why not tho Egyptians? Oh, it was such a beautiful walking place! A pavement of tinged shells and pearls, and on either sido two great walls of water solid. There can be no danger. Forward, great host of the Egyptians ! Clap the cymbals and blow the trump ets of victory ! After them ! We will catch them yet, and they shall be de stroyed. But tba walls begin to trem ble. They rock! They fall! The rush ing waters! The shriek of drowning men ! The swimming of tho war horses in vain for tho shore! Tho strewing of the great host on the bottom of the sea, or pitched by the angry wave on the beach a battered, bruised and loathsome wreck! Suddenly destruc tion came. Ono half hour before they could not have believed it. Destroyed, and without remedy. I am just setting forth a fact which you have noticed as well as I. Ananias comes to the apostle. The apostle says, "Did you sell the land for so much?" He says, "Yes." It was a lie. Dead! as quick as that ! Sapphira, his wife, comes in. "Did you sell the land for so much?" "Yes." It was a lie; and quick as that she was dead! God's judgments arc upon thoso who despise and defy him. They come suddenly. The destroying -:)gel went through Egypt. I) you suppose that any of the people knew that he was coming? Did they hear tho flap of hi:; great wing? No! no! Suddenly, unexpectedly, he came. Skilled sp:rt;:me:i do not like to shoot a bird standing on u sprig near by. If they are skilled they pride themselves on taking it on tho wing, and they wait till it starts. Death is an old sports man, and he loves to take men flying under the very sun. IIo loves to take them oh the wing. HEED WHAT FOLLOWS! Are there any licr.j who aro unpre pared for the eternal world? Are there any here who havo been living without God and without hope? Let mo say to you that you had better accept of the Lord Jesus Christ, lest suddenly your last chance be gone. The lungs will cease to breathe, the heart will stop. The time will eonio when you shall go no more to tho oflico, or to the store, or to the shop, Nothing will bo left but Death and Judgment and Eterni ty. Oil! (leo to God this hour! If there bo ono in this presence who has wandered far away from Christ, though he may not have heard the call 6f the gospel for many a year, I invito him now to come and be saved. Flee from thy sin! nee to the stronghold of the gospel! Now is the accepted time; now is tho day of salvation. Good-night, my young friends! May you have rosy sloop, guarded by him who never slumbers! May you awake hi the morning strong and well! But oh! art thou u despiscr of God? Is this thy last night on earth? Should'st though bo awakened in tho night by something, thou knowest not what, and there bo shadows floating in the room, and a handwriting on the wall, and you feel thai; your last hour is come, and there be a fainting at the heart, and a tremor in tho limb, and a catching of the breath then thy doom would be but an echo of tho words of tho text, "In that night was Belshaz zar, tho king of the Chaldeans, slain." Hear the invitation of tho gospel! There may bo some one in this house to whom I shall never speak again and therefore let it bo in tho words of tho Gospel, and not in my own, with which I close: "IIo, every ono that thirsteth! Come ye to the waters. And let him that hath no money come. buy wine and milk without money, and without price." "Come unto me, all ye who are weary and heavy laden, and I will ffive you rest." Oh! that my Lord Jesus would now make him self so attractive to your souls that you cannot resist him; and that, if you have never prayed before, or have not prayed since those days when you knelt down at your mother's knee, then that to-night you might pray, saying: Just as I am, without ono plea. But that t'.iy Woo l was shed for me, Auil that thou bid'st me como to thee, O Lamo of God, I come! But if you cannot think of so long a prayer as that, I will give you a shorter praver that you can say, "God be mer ciful to lue, a sinner!" Or, if you can not think of so long a prayer as that, I will give you a still shorter one that you may utter, "Lord, save me, or I perish! Or it that be too long a prayer, you need not utter one word. Just look and live! HISTORIAN BANCROFT'S BUSY LIFE. Notable Events That Marked Ills Career as Statesman and Student In the recent death of Hon. George Bancroft America lost a statesman and a student who was an ornament to his country and his age. During a long life, which began in 1800, he either witnessed or participated m many notable events, lie was a student at Har vard when the battle of Water loo ended Nano- 'uf leon's career, and l r-r ?! r. v mM?V trom 1SH to i23 -Vf an eager and in- W&&3tkJt -Jk telligent traveler KC" Returning home 7 ' he bemn the HON. george Bancroft course of literary work which was to culminate in his fa mous history of the United States. He entered politics at the age of 83 as col lector of the port of Boston. Later on when President Polk's secretary of the navy, he founded an enduring monu ment to his name, tho Annapolis acade my. As acting secretary of war in 1846 he initiated the Mexican conflict by or dering Gen. Taylor to tho Rio Grande. The same year he became minister to Great Britain. After his return in 1849 he spent nearly two decades in labor upon his history. A new interruption came in 1SG7, when he was sent as envoy to Berlin. Eight years at the German capital ended his public career, and thereafter his lifo was that of a student and enlightened man of wealth. Always fond of outdoor exercise, ho kept up his horseback riding umil within a year, and took his last pedestrian excursion on the streets of W ashington but three days before his death, WORLD'S FAIR LADY MANAGERS. Opinions Divided About the Woman's Exhibit Tho Missouri Delegates. There aro peoplo who carp and kick, to use the vernacular, against anything and everything under tho sun; not be cause they have any particular objection to it, but simply for tha sake of kicking, and therefore it is not surprising that the request made by the president of the board of lady managers, Mrs. Palmer, for a separate building on the Chicago Lake Front in which to display a portion of the woman's exhibit has encountered a veritable storm of opposition. Singular ly enough, however, tne majority of the opponents of the proposition are them selves women. The women's board took the lead when by a narrow majority it put on record its positive and unequiv ocal protest against any form of separate or special exhibit of woman's wori, and this little leaven threatens to lauven the whole lump of feminine co-operation, It is now contended that ic is neither right nor just to separate tho women from the men in the matter of exhibits; that such a scheme would be a species of class, or rather sex, legislation; that th9 women have an equal right wit'.i the masculine portion of humanity to a part and parcel of all the buildings, and that distinctions of sax should bo unknown. Others characterize the proposition to enlist tho sympathies of royal and noble ladies of the European monarchies as de cidedly undemocratic and lowering to the dignity of the working women of America, a large majority of whom are humble wage workers. Nevertheless, Mrs. Palmer proposes to proceed on the line that sho has marked out, and if she MRS. SWART. MISS COCZINS. MISS BROWN. MRS. MOORK. is successful it wili only be another illus tration of the fact that when a (Cnicago) woman says she will, she will, and that's the end of it. Missouri's lady representatives on the World's fair commission have achieved distinction in various fields of woman's work. Miss Phoebe W. Cjuzins, LL. B., is well known as a lawyer and ljcturer. Sho was admitte l to tho bar of Wash ington in 1871, and was afterward ad mitted to practico in the courts of Ar kansas arid the United Slates district court of St. Louis. Her devotion to the cause of liuffrage gained her a national reputation, a:il her appnitit.u ;at as United States marshal for tho eastern district of Missouri wan hailed a s a sig nificant recognition of the rights of women. Mrs. G. G. Moore, or I.Irs. Patty Moore, as ulrj i j familiarly n:i::i-j;l by her friends, is tho alternate for MissCotizins. Mrs. Mooi-o is a Kentuckian by birth, mid a Missourian by adaption and choice. Sho resides in Kansas City, where she holds tho position of matron of the poliuo department. She is also an honorary member of tho Woman's exchange, the board of refuge direct ors and tho Humane society of Kansas City, and is an earnest and tireless mem ber of tho Woman's Christian Temper ance union. Mrs. Annie L. Y. Swart, who is also an alternate drkgate, is a resident of St. Louis. S!n has been remarkably successful in several business eriler prises, and originate! The Chuperone, a new literary magazine. The fourth member of tho delegation. Miss Lilian M. Brown, is uls; w?U and favorably known in conaaytion with every movement for tho advancement of women. The Cumin steamship company has contracted for the bnilding; of two now ocean raeerH, which will make the voynge bet ween New York ind QueenHtown in five days and ig.ht liourn and New York and Liverpool under nix days. The ship ire to be built on the Clyde, to ost $2,000,000 each, and to be ready in 1892. NATIONAL COUNCIL OF WOMEN. An Important Meeting Soon to lie Held at Wasliioston. Tho first triennial meeting of the Na tional Council of Women of tho United States, which will be held iu Washing ton from Feb. 23 to 23, is expected to bring together tho largest representative body ot women ever assembled. The .. . - LATH KG P. HOW1.LL National council is the outcome of the International Council of Women held in Washington in the spring of 1888, which was composed of delegates from fifty three natioual societies in seven differ ent countries, al was at;endid by 2,000 women from all parts of tha world. Its officers aro Frances E. Willard, of Evanston, Ills., president; Susa'i B. An thony, of Rochester, N. Y., vice presi dent; Mrs. May Wright Sewall, of In dianapolis, Insl., con-e? oo:id ng secre tary; Miss Ma: j- F. Eastman, of Tewks bury, Mass., r -cor ling secretary, and Mrs. M. LouisiTh'nas, of New York, treasurer. Thi-MOj.t o? this meeting is to complete t'u work of federation. A great deal of tho immediate interest of the assembla ,'e will bo the personality of many of t.i : participants. Among those who sign I the call are Harriet G. Hosmer, Clara Barton, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Kate Tannatt Woods, Mary H. Kront. Kite Field, Elizabeth Boynton Harb rfc, Jennie C. Croly (Jen nie June) and .1 da Holmes Smith, who are all well kn. "n ia woman's work. Mrs. Mary V. Lathrop, who will rep resent ttte Woman's Christian Temper ance union, has devoted her lifo to tem perance and evangelical work. She lives in Detroit, an 1 for vears hu3 held a local preacher's license from tho Method ist conference. H?r sermons are noted for their persmwiveness and elcqaence. The National American Woman Suf frage association will be represented by Mrs. Mary Seymour Howell, whose work before the New York state legislature has given herajiational reputation. She is an effective and entertaining speaker, Another influential delegate is Mrs. Ella Dietz Clymer, president of Sorosis, a woman of singular nttracveness and marked poetic abilities, who has won an enviable reputation in the do main of literature and education. Miss Anthony and Miss Willard are every where known as earnest and persistent workers in the canse of women, and will be among the most conspicuous fignrea m this remarkable gatherin, Old Meo and the Senate. The senate has a way of keeping the old men and clinging to t'uo old customs that makes it in many ways a link be tween the present and the past. In addition to Capt. Bassett. who com mands tho pages, there are about the senate, iu ouo capacity or another, a score of very old men. soma of whom must have baen here forty or more years, Now and then one will como upon a sen ate employe who has baon here since he was big enough to work, and whose fa ther, and possibly his grandfather, were here beforo him. Such a caso is that of Charle3 McDonald, one of the assistant sergeants-at-arms. Ha entered the serv-t ice of tho senate whoa h3 was a small boy. His father sponfe all his life in andj about tha 'onate chamber, and hia grandfather was" a senate clerk when congress sat in Philadelphia, and also when the first sessions were held in this. city. A Peculiar Route to Success. At least ono Nevada Indian has risen to success, and that by a most remark able route. In 1881 he was sentenced tc the penitentiary for life for killing a Chinaman, and was set to work in the quarries. The other day the governor pardoned him, and now he fills tha place of boss blaster at wages of $3.50 and board. There is po moral to the story, for if the man hadn't committed murder he would be today, as he was at the time of the crime, a dirty, vicious, am less loafer. New Hampshire's New Senator. Dr. J. H. Gallinger, who will succeed Henry W. Blair a3 United States sena tor from New Hampshire, has won hi9 way to the front because of energy and perseverance. He is a man of decided views, who makes strong friends and bitter opponents. The latter arrayed themselves against him in the recent contest at Con cord, but were routed after a hot fight. In his speech of accept ance the nomine declared himself in favor of pro tection and op posed to the free coinage of silver. Dr. Gallinger is a native of Canada and a printer by trade. After working at DR. GALLINQER. the case for some time he studied medi cine. He began the practice of his pro fession at Cincinnati in 1858, but in 1860 he removed to New Hampshire, where he has resided ever since. His political career has been uniformly a successful one, and Includes several terms in the state legislature and in congress. Married Across the Flood. Justice Weir received a message re questing his presence at the hamlet of Blue LicKtTfiarry a couplo. He at onoe mounted and started, but was greatly hnpeded by the swollen streams that Jay across his path. When he reached Blue Lick Creek he found that ordinarily placid stream a raging, roar ing torrent, impassable. While trying to deviso some plan to get across therj was a clatter of hoofs on tho opposite sido of tho stream, and in a moment a horse was pulled up on tho edge of tho water. On its back was Harvey Taylor, who held on the pommel of his saddle Kato Newny. The couple wanted to get married, and that quickly. How to do it in view of the water barrier was a question. Finally the justice from this side of the creek suggested that tho license be wrapped in a handkerchief and tied to a rock and thrown over to him for ex amination. This was done. Then the justice mounted his horse, and using his hands for a trumpet, shouted tlie words that are usually employed in marriage ceremonies at the hand in jiand couple across the stream. They chouted back tho responses, and the justieo declared the knot tied. About 200 feet of water separated Justice Weir from the couplo, and the roar of tho torrent and tho patter of the rain probably rendered the service and responses inaudible, but as al formalities were observed the marriage is certainly legal.

And yet at one time she was as charming, cheery and vigor ous n womuu os ever helped a hus band in his life's labor ? . - ,' MRS. CLYMER. MI. THOMAS. MRS. KRS. No Medium kie llio Newspaper. The advertising l.'.an of a well known New York clothing lior.se says: "Wo wero tho first to uso tho sails of ves sels -is an advertising medium. Then we got up tho 'alphabet puzzle,' and gave away 500,000 puzzles while the craze lasted. Afterward we invented the Waterbury watch idea. We had to do something, because throe of our prin cipal competitors had failed, and their stocks were being sold for next to nothing by assignees; so we decided to give a Waterbury watch with every twelve dollars' worth of goods pur chased. We advertised the watches 'wound and set.' To wind them fast enough we had to rig up a little machine worked like a sewing machine that would do the winding, and we kept several boys at work winding and setting them. Before we quit we had given away 40,000 of the watches. "But nothing ever pays us like the or dinary newspaper advertising. The fact is there has come to be in this city a class of advertisement readers just as there is of news readers. They read the advertisements every day, and of course tho man who wants to attract them has to get up an advertisement that will do it. The day of standing advertisements in the paper, "Go to L;o-and-So's for cloth ing,' or 'Go to This-and-Tliat's for shoes," has passed, just as the day for painting signs on rocks and fences or on the sails of boats has passed. You must have something interesting and fresh in every advertisement, and it will be read. A Place for Talent. In nearly all regulated lines of indus try at present the advertising man is one of the most important adjuncts of a business. And on the the other hand the advertising department of a first class newspaper is not what it used to be, but is instead fast becoming an in teresting feature of all enterprising jour nals. Formerly the prevailing idea among the uninitiated was that the talented, the best, most versatile and most ingenious writers and artists were all employed in the news department. How nearly correct this idea may have been need not be stated, but that such is not the case now may be seen by a perusal of the "ads" of any flourishing p-per. The competitions between the merchants and between the papers' agents have become so great that the great wholesale and retail houses of the large cities employ talented men at big salaries to attend to their advertising alone, and the men who want the best positions in the counting rooms of news papers must combine fine business quali fications with tho talent that wins suc cess in the editorial chair. Yenowine's News. Advertising Necessary to Success. The merchant or manufacturer who does not advertise his goods cannot suc ceed. Of late newspaper advertising has become a distinct trade in itself, and all over the country leading concerns pay fabulous prices for men who are skillful in writing catchy advertisements. In many large cities there ire men earning from : .(MID to S10.0 10 a vearto write atl - vertisements I his fact in itself shows advertising pays. If people interested in this subject will investigate it for themselves they will find that the leading advertisers in The Plain Dealer are the merchants who Lave the best stores, the best assort ments of goods and who sell at the most reasonable prices. Such merchants do a much larger business than merchants who do not advertise: consequently they turn their gootls over more quickly and can aiford to give better prices. Close buyers appreciate this. What is the moral? He who advertises the most judicious! succeeds the best, and the buyers who seek the best bargains patronize such merchants. Cleveland Plain Dealer. Never Do Common place. "Bring your feet with you and have them fitted to a pair of our common sense shoes," is the way a Pittsburg dealer advertises. It is a good phrase and one which attracts attention. The man who succeeds in advertising in such a way that people read his advertise ment is the one who draws trade to his store as sure as a magnet draws a needle to itself. Study up quaint, pithy or witty phrases to head your advertise ments, and be not too modest iu the space they occupy. Brockton Shoe. (tegular Publications Best. No one takes up a regular publication without the expectation of finding some thing of interest. The simple act of turning the pages is as positive an ex ample of expectation as is tha opening of a closet if one is in search of a coat. Hence an announcement in a regular publication has an advantage over any other form of business solicitation that of meeting tho sought for eye at a time that it is in a mood for such greeting. A. C. Ladd. Fulfill Every rromise. The merchant who desires the confi dence and custom of intelligent people should never make a promise that he does not fulfill, or hold out, either by express statement or inference, any in ducements that are not fully substan tiated by the facts. There is no endur ing success where confidence is lacking on the part cf customers. Auy success not founded on square and liberal deal ing is sure to be short lived;. A Fortunate Mugician. A crippled musician ia to be found In Scotland, traveling on tho line of rails between Dundee and Broughty Ferry. He performs on the concertina, and has been in the business for tho last ten or fifteen years.

Traveling does not seeni to diminish his energy, for, with the aid of his crutch, he gets from one carriage to another with as much agility as his more fortunate fellow passengers. London Tit-Bits.
