E. church ycstcrdny morning preached nn interesting sermon , tubing for his subject , "Tho Story of Uobcrt Humlln's life , " relating his text from Job 5,2'i. "Thou Bhnlt coino to thy gr.ivo in n full ngc , llko us u shock of corn coineth in In his season. " Said the preacher : I propose this morning to tell the story of Hobcrt Ilamlln's life. This service Is duo our brother , who has so recently finished his earthly pllgrimngo mid Is to-day spending his llrstSubb.ith In heaven. Hut wo expect to receive from a glance nt his llfo uml death the greatest good for ourselves. The dead do not need our consideration or our words of praise , but wo may bo greatly benefited by looking over the road which they have travceled and recounting the victories they have won. Hobort Hnmlln was born in Stcubenvlllo , O. , on the Hth of May , 1S11. Ills father died when ho was u year and n half old and Kobcrt fell Into the hands of a farmer who drank , and abused him. Ad a boy ho was very bright. Uo had more than tin ordinary inlnd and hls.mcmory was especially remark able. In September , 1&2S , he and his brother John gathered up their few effects and started out for themselves. They went first to visit their mother In liqtlcr comity , Penn sylvania , hut he stayed only u few days , and from there he went to Frceport , Pa. , where lie learned the blacksmith trade of James McCall. lie then traveled considerably. Ho went to Texas , visited Maryland and Virginia and worked some time at Harper's Ferry. Ho started a shop at Frceport where ho learned his trade , but he was not to enter on his life work at any of thcso places. God had designed for him a training In a larger ftchool. Ho was to bo thrown into the soci ety of men of the broadiht minds and deepest piety. From Frecport ho moved to Cincinnati , which city was his homo for thirty years. Ho moved then to Illinois , and about sovori years ago ho came to Nebraska und made a homo at Nebraska- City , and I wo years ngo lie rutno 1o this city and on lait Tuesday. January 10 , ho made a Journey from earth to heaven. Let us now take u glance at his life as u business man. The career of this man shows us that If wo will , wo can , do more than one thing. I lind so many people with broken hearts because they have not chosen what they believe was their especial work , and on this account they seem to believe that they can do nothing. This' is n , great mistake. Hobort Hamliii learned the trade of a black- Htnith , and he was never ashamed of it. Ho was lilto Lyou , the Philadelphia blacksmith , Who said to Nci'gle , the blacksmith , " 1 itim no fine gentleman in spite of my money. I urn n blacksmith and 1 must bo painted at my .forgo. " In Cincinnati Hrolher Hamlin was known as the steam boat blacksmith. Ho was then n very powerful man and did the heaviest work. See that your boys have a trade. A boy who faces the world without knowing how to do something meets the fee at fearful odds. The subject of this sketch , after working nt his trade and paining a competency , pur chased a farm in Illinois , and raised corn and cnttlo for the Chicago market. Ho uro e In the morning as soon as he could sec , and ho would urge his horses almost to a trot as ho ploughed the corn. Ho made things hum. In those latter days of his life ho invested In real estate in Nebraska- and good fortune atill followed him , and the day of his death ho left n very nice property for the comfort of those dear to him. As a business man ho had this rare gift the ability to make money without allowing the making of money to 'dwarf him or make him stingy. Ho did not follow the "God of this world" too far. Ho "used this world as not abusing it. " His Christian life began very early. When n mcro boy ho could recite many of the psalms as well as whole chapters from the now testament. If you want your sons to bo religious store their minds with divine truth. Ho was a born Methodist. Ho never be lieved in the doctrines of John Calvin. There were no Methodists near him , and ho was brought up in the homo of n prcsbyterian , hut from ttio tirst ho talked the doctrines Which John Wesley emphasised. Ho Joined the Methodist Episcopal church in 1SHO. When ho went to Texas ho lost his trunk in the water and his church letter went down with the rest of his valuables , thus cutting off his relation to the church. Hut soon Iritai1 K0i5n ' ° Cincinnati , while working in the shop ono day , ! m laid off his apron , hunted up H Methodist preacher , and uguin invited with the church. Then ho went back to the shop und continued his work. Ho was an oftlcer in the eaurds fnv moro than forty years and u member for inoro than fifty sovcn. He was ono of the best Sabbath school workers. In 1801 the Sabbath school at Finly chapel presented him with a handsome family bible. Ho lias taken the Western Christian Advocate Binco its llrbt issue. Ho made sacrifices for the churcli , having moitgagcd his house to save Finly Chapel. Ho was deeply pious. Ho was soundly converted at ono of the old- tlmo camp meetings , and for nearly sixty years ho lived near to God. Ho w.is a power In prayer. His language when in prayer was eloquent. In the revivals that swept over his city ho was as a marked Hguro. Ho was in the church a muster among masters. Coming thus fur wo must call this life n great success. Let us stop a moment to look ut the reasons. Ho had ability of both mind and body. IIo learned his business and fol lowed It witli moro than common activity , lint above nil ho had the blessing of God. When ho and his brother John first went out into the world Hobert said , "Let , us kneel down hero by the bide of the road and toll God our circumstances , and ask Him to bless us. " God heard that prayer and answered it. While Hamliu succeeded in thc.so temporal ways , as wo have shown , ho scored a yet greater succc.ss in moral and spiritual things , and in the building up of a character which , when thoroughly known , must bo the admira tion of men. There is nothing wo admire so much as u pure and noble selfhood. Hobcrt Hamllu's homo life was what you might ex pect from such n man. Ha had no homo when a boy so that ho prized his own homo nil the moro , On the Ulli of Juno' 1SI15 , ho married Elizabeth Gogin , n daughter of ono of the old time Methodist families of Clueiii- iiattl. The wife , with ono son and two daughters , survive hint , Ho loved ids family dearly , anticipating their every want. t He was taken sick on Thursday , January t > , and died on January 10 , ISSS. Three days before his death ho Mild to me : "Jesus is my precious savior. Ho saves to the utter most. My faith don't stagger a bit. " His death was n lilting close to the life ho lived. Ho sank to rest as a tired child goes to sleep. His wife kneeled by his hide and shouted victory for the soul that had ceased to speak on earth. Wliilo looking into his face she paid him n wonderful tribute : "Wo lived together nearly llfty-thrco years , but those lips never spoke a cross word to mo. Ho has only gene a little beyond ; I know just when ) to ihul him. " His brother John came in and said : ' 'There is the bvst brother that over lived. " His daughter said , "Ho was my best earthly friend. " Ilia funeral was held on Thursday , January 12 , ISSS , and was attended by a largo number of mourning friends , The service was con ducted by ids pastor , with addresses by IJov. W. 1C. Ueans unit Uov. Joseph Presson. Ucv. A. II. Henry and Kov. T. M. House also took part in the service. To day wo leave him with God. Ho has mot his oldfriendsof iUty years ago. lilshops Hamlin and Morris have bade him welcome to heaven , and lie talks ngahi with AVillium H. GhrMUs OcorgoW. Walker , Juincs Finloy and John Moffntt. Wo offer the prayer : "Let me dlo the dcatli of the right- cous. " _ DYING 11Y INCH ES.

Mr , Potter's duties since assuming the management of 0 > o Pacific road have been of the most laborious character and his usually strong mid robust constitution seems to have completely collapsed under the pressure of overwork. Ho is yet a young man and has led u most-remarkable career , rising from a common brukoman on the Chicago , Hurllng- ton it Quiney road to the responsible posi tion of its general .manager , which place ho surrendered a year or so ngo to accept n tempting offer made to him by the Union Pacillc company , A SnWKH HfllSTS.

Louis Hopubllcun : The proof - of the country nro prin- 1 pally corn copper uml the smaller oreiils. I litivo scon 'cufetuls , ' or coffuo 'urins , which contained 5,000 acres and xtcntlecl over hills and mountains. There is a wonderful crater of an ex- inut volcano at Anachapam which is really one side of the Andes mountains. I traveled two days up to the mountain "leforo I reached this wonderful place. Tlio crater is as hit-go as u whole block "n a city nnd tlio walls arc as deep as Lh'is hotel is high. You ascend by stops ivhich have been prepared , and when you got to tlio bottom you htivo to put ivooden boards on the boltoms of your 'eet to keep your shoes from .burning ; and yet there is grass growing in tins crater. At one side there is a huge , up right rock , with two cracks crossing it ibouf the center , and ju-st hero is a hole .ibquthix inches in diameter through which issues bteam with the sumo noise milted by a steam engine * while below you can hear a bound like the workings of ponderous machinery. It is diilicult o believe that it is tlio work of nature. In the center of the crater is a round lolo through a rock. Tlio hole is us largo as a man's body , and through this hole tlicro issues a volume of muddy hot water every time the volcano ' cano Isalco ceases to omit 'its burning "ava , which is every minute. That is to bay , every limo llio Ibalca volcano. twenty miles away , emits a volume of lava , the water in the extinct volcano of Atiachapam falls , and vieo versa. The Spaniards in Central America arc a strange peoulo , and it takes an Ameri can fcomo time to understand them. They arc painfully polite , and ono must know when to accept their hospitality. When I lirst went there , a friendly Spaniard , to whom I was in troduced , showed mo a beautiful gold watch and chain , and seeing that I was charmed with it , asked mo if I liked it. I not only answered in the affirmative , but was lavish in expressing my admi ration , thinking it would please him. At this ho asked mo if \yantod the watch , and I accepted it with joy , ho talcing it out of his pocket juid handing it to mo. That Spaniard did not speak to mo for six mouths , and when L found out what was the matter I bought him another timepiece , but still keep the ono he gave me. " She Liken to Do .Single. Brooklyn Kaglo : Some weeks ago the Eagle gave an account of an adventur ous young German woman who , wearied of iho humdrum round of domestic duticri and thirsting for a moro exciting life than could bo found within tlio walls of an castoru district tenement homo , had abandoned husband and child and iled with a lover to the ' 'wild and wholly west. " She wrote her hus band a loller from somewhere in Idaho , in which she detailed a lot of thrilling adventures and lold him she had made friends with a lot of cowboys. All Uiis and moro was sot forth at great length in the letter , and the woman wound up by declaring that nothing could lompt her to return to civilization. Yesterday aftcrvoon the cnso eventu ated in a divorce trial. Tlio most cur ious feature of llio case was a leltor fi'onutho woman to her husband , which was oiTorod in evidence. It was dated Boise C'ity , September , 1SSO , and was wrij-ton in ungranunatictil Gorman , of which a literal translation was fur nished the court. It read as follows : "Mv DKAU HUSHAXD : I will lot you know where I am , so that if you should ever got a notion to visit mo , that you should know where you have to come ; but I think you will not got any head ache about it.

New York Correspondence Kansas ity Times : Tlio other day I noticed a brisk , quick spoken man , of about the nedium height , giving directions con cerning storm doors and other matters n the great Mills building at Broad treet. IIo might have been taken for ho proprietor of a slago line in an in- und town , dressed up a little for Sun- lay. That is rather an odd idea. Tlio nan is Darius O. Mills. IIo used to Irivc a hack in a Hudson river town. \'ow ho is worth $10,000,000. There is a ouch ot the hack driver about him still ; something of the gruffncss of the Union jelui , without the bulbous nose , , he fiery face , and tlio disposition to cheat. Tlio sight of this unpretending mill- onaire in a short coat , a derby hat and one hand in his pocket , quietly giving lirections about his $ : t,000,000 building , ccallcd tlio fact that lie was only one of i number whom the precious metals of the west had enormously enriched , and nest of whom have eventually found heir way to New York. Mr. Mills at one time kept a tavern in i Hudson river town. He wont to Cali- ornia in 1817 : by way of Capo Horn , and after narrowly escaping shipwreck , ar- ived at San Francisco , where with his n-othor he opened a store , sold the roods they had brought with them at abulous prices , gradually enlarging his nisiness , engaged in mining and bank- ng , became associated with Ilalston in , he famous bank ot California , and on , he death of that daring financier suc ceeded him as president of the bank , lo came to New York worth three or four millions , made several millions nero in a lucky deal in Lake Shore , and las since further increased his fortune n various ventures. lie bought Henry Villard's house on Madison avenue , and ircsentcd it to his daughter , the wife of .Vhitelaw Reid.

A report , vhich strangely enough was not con- radictcd in the proper quarter , credited .ho . son-in-law with this splendid pur chase ; but tlio honor belongs to the man vho , from the humblest beginnings , has worked his way up to colossal wealth , las never changed his name or shown uiy of that snobbery which would ignore , ho humble origin and the struggle up ward from a much lower round of the adder.

Prices never were so low and in many instances are cut in two Overcoats that used to sell for $4.50 , $7 and $9 , are now offered at $2.50 , $3.5O and $5. We don't mean to have a single overcoat left. All must go. Another bargain to which we draw attention are odd pants. At the end of every season we always have left a good many suit prints. Eve rybody knows how cheap we are selling pants , but our suit pants are always marked far below their value. What is left of them now is taken out of the regular stock and placed oil separate tables , and the way these pants are marked ought to clear them very quick. Good heavy all wool cassimere pants in nice plain patterns , at $1.50 , which are ac tually worth $3 and more. Among them is a lot of extra fine corkscrew pants , marked $3.25 , $3.50 and $3.50 ; every pair .is worth more than double. double.All All goods marked in plain figures and at strictly oils price.
