Revolving like a wheel, whose hither rim
W hirls fast beneath m y gaze, whose thither
edge rolls slow.
A nd these the scenes that reel b y endlessly:
Green glistening seas o f corn uptossing feath­

A nd yellow shored with beaches o f ripe
W hich, like Ulysses feigning madness, farmers
drive along
A n d sheaf in heaps o f rich, unsteriie gold:
Unceasing meadows leveled unto occanio
A n d sprinkled with faint tinkling herds that
A n d wind hoofed colts that flee us, half for
fear and half for fan;
H ills dotted w ith snowdrifts o f huddled
Thick shadowed forests haunted b y litho Dry­
ads fon d o f flowers
A nd thirsting ale v for cool deeps o f shade.
But hear the suddc ■ roar that shoots w ith ns
the trestled stream,
Com egayly sauntering its winding path,
W h ich leads from wide skied hills through
dingy twilights o f big towns.
A n d on unto the everlasting sea.
Betimes onr tempest footed runner shrieks
A nd halts to rest him a t wee villages.
W here cluster awkward louts ail rags, all stare
and blatant tongues.
Y et owning souls more mar velons than stars.
Then straightway on again, with panting
breath and clanging bell.
To race the rivaling wind across the plain.
Too soon the journey ends. The city swallows
ns too soon,
Bnt God he praisedl a few glad hours
Grant modern eyes a view o f skies and sens,

that these ladies ow ed a good deal to

this ciu’ious com bination o f prema­

fa ct that these w om en ate arsenic in
order to produce an aristocratic pal­

h orror that another effect o f th e

above their hair, how ever, they sacri­

T lie Promotion o f Thought.
Formerly teaching was by rote, but
modern teaching pursues a wiser meth­
od. The progressive teacher now en­
deavors to promote thought in the
mind o f the pupil. It is not the aim
o f the wide-awake teacher to fill the
mind o f the young with mere teclmi
cal studies. While the mastery of
technique is good enough in itself as
a matter of mental discipline, yet any
thoughtful, well-informed teacher will
tell you that it is not sufficient; that
a good reference book adapted to the
understanding o f the young will lead
up to the higher knowledge and make
the progress o f the student easy aud
rapid. Such a work is the Y outh’ s
Cyclopaedia, which has greatly aided
the teachers in public schools, acade­
mies and seminaries, in raising the
standard of scholarship.

H kw Y ork, Dec. 24.—Rev. Thomas
Dixon, Jr., surprised Ms audience in
Association hall this morning by an­
nouncing before the sermon that after
the first day o f January he would stop
the publication o f his sermons. Hesaid:
" I have informed the American Press
Association that with the close of tho
present series X w ill no longer furnish
my sermons for publication. I have two
reasons for this: X am not yet 30 years
old—I am writing too much thus early
in life. I desire to spend several years
in study before m ating more. Besides,
with my present methods o f work and
study I find flic method o f advance prep­
aration o f manuscript for the pirns an
intolerable drain on my time and ener­
The sermon this morning was on “ The
Court of Honor,” the next to the last in
the series of the “ Prophecies o f the
World’s Fair.” The text chosen was
from X Corinthians iii, 31. “ A ll things
are yonrs. ”
But twice before in my life have I
been so profoundly moved as when X
stood for the first time within “ The
Court of H onor" of the fair—once when
I stood on the lofty summit o f a grand
mountain peak and looked down upon
the great world God had made so beau­
tiful, and once again when I first climb­
ed the sand dunes o f my native state
and gazed upon miles of ocean breakers
as they rolled in from the infinite deep
and broke upon the beach with hiss and
boom and sullen roar.
X couldn’ t keep back the tears—who
could that had a soul?
Julian Hawthorne has most beauti­
fully described that scene: “ The pale
gilded dome of the Administration
building, the ranged columns o f the
peristyle, the pinnacles and the Diana
dome, with the golden goddess floating
above it and forever aiming her arrow
at the wind’s eye: the mighty statue of
the republic, majestic with her uplifted
arms and severe drapery, dominating
the eastern end of the lagoon, and the
white splendor of the great fountain at
the other extremity, with that ravish­
ing figure of Liberty sitting divinely
erect in her chair on the poop of the
barge, her eight maiden gondoliers oar­
ing on either side, while Father Time
steers on the stern, his scythe fastened
to the tiller, and Progress alights on the
bows, her trumpet in her hand; then
the Venetian bridges that span the arms
of the lagoon, with Kemey’s matchless
bears and buffalos guarding them; the
mighty hulls and horses on the midway
steps, the triumphal pillars marking the
comers o f the vast quadrangle With
their slender white beauty, the exquis­
ite little Greek temples in the fore­
ground o f the peristyle, the glorious lift
and sweep, strength and spirituality, of
the whole stupendous conception.which,

The first principle of your modern busi­
ness world is war, competition, brutal
fight— every man for himself. It is the
strongest arm that wins, an d the weakest
■ones are trampled to the earth and killed
and beaten without mercy. W ar and
pestilence are the only hope to regulate
our population, according to the princi­
ples of this modern business world.
The brutal survive, while the weak per­
ish. What is to become o f this vast ar­
m y of weaklings? W ell, our Malthusian
philosophers say: “ We w ill have a pes­
tilence by and by, and God w ill send
ns the cholera. Or if not God in his
goodness and mercy w ill send us a war,
and war w ill thin the ranks, and the
battle w ill begin again. After the
weaklings have been eliminated the
world w ill not he so crowded,, and we
can proceed. ”
Sneli is the basis on which modern
commerce rests. Ill this battle, this
war, this madness, this struggle, the
very competition which has been called
the life of - trade is its defeat. For yon
have only to press competition to a cer­
tain period when men who are fighting
each other know they must combine or
die. Only press your competition far
enough, and it is either suicide or com­
bination. This brings .into your world,
governed by that principle, infinite con­
fusion, for when that defeats itself and
no new system takes its place the result is
chaos— cheating, lying,swindling.steal­
ing, crime, intemperance, suicide, de­
spair. Why do men open saloons and sell
whisky? W hy, because they have accept­
ed this modern principle o f the modern
world that the strongest man is the man
that is worthy to survive,* that it is a
battle, a war. and he who is victorious
is the man who is crowned, let the busi­
ness be what it may. Hence the gam­
bler who does not hesitate about his
methods, saying that might constitutes
tlie first principle of your modern
world. Daily facts these are. Lying in
the business world—so much there is of
it in all trades! Overreaching is what
thousands of men are after in the busi­
ness world. To overreach a man and
get the better of him by some trick; to
get out of him more than we give in re­
turn. That is the sum total of the pur
pose of some lives. If iu war a man is
wounded, you pass him by. Most heart­
less of all things in the world is your
modern business wav. When a man fall
by the wayside iu modern business, tlie
world has no mercy, no heart, uo ear to
pity, no arm to save. That is modern
Christianity ‘is certainly in deadly
conflict with that sort o f life— success­
ful business with modern methods down
to date. There are business men who
are honest. There are men who have
set out in the world with the determi­
nation to make houor and truth audthe
good of society their aim, anti they have
grown wealthy,some of those men. They
have grown powerful. How, that being
a fact, the man who departs from that
law and says that he can justify him­
self on the grounds of success has be­
lieved a lie that he may damn himself
in the process. There are men today
whose business career is absolutely
above reproach. I might mention a
thousand successful business enterprises
that have been founded thus on integri­
ty. So much the worse for the success
that may he otherwise. But. a man
says, the quickest way to get rich—
well, you do not have to*he too consci­
entious. How and then just shut one
eye, and then yon will reach the high­
est things hv the most rapid process. Of
course when you get your money you can
do a great deal of good with it. Right
may fail for a moment today, hut it is
certain to rise tomorrow. Men that are
shrewd and cunning, men that are w ill­
ing to lie and be unfair and dishonest,
may "get theii riches for awhile, but as
sure as there is a God in heaven it w ill
turn to ashes at last in their grasp.

that rales this world. Yon think the

corporations. A distinguished man
died some years ago in Hew York city,
the soul of honor in every personal
transaction. His servants stood weep­
ing by the door when he died. He did
not owe a cent. Everything was paid
for in cash. He said: ‘ ‘ Do not owe your
workingman a cent. It is dishonest to
keep his wages from him, unless you
pay him interest on i t — pay him
promptly. ” But he was at the head of
a gigantic corporation that held a mo­
nopoly and made his fortune out o f the
lives of a community that were ground
in the process. And when men ap­
proached him he said, “ I am honest in
all my transactions, but a corporation
has got no soul. ” God does not call cor­
porations to account. The devil does not
call them to account. They have no
soul. They w ill even cheat the devil.
But God does call the individuals that
constitute the corporation to account.
God will call to account all the persons
involved in the conduct of that business.
Individuals will thus render their ac­
counts at the last. Why, yon know that
a town council and a school committee
sometimes w ill he cruel and unjust
aud unprincipled in a transaction that
an individual man or woman would
scorn to stoop to. A merchant who
would scorn to sell flour mixed with
chalk, scorn to mix up his goods and
adulterate them and sell them to the
world, who would kick another man
ont of his store who would offer Mm
a- trick by which he could adulterate
sugar or flour or coffee—yet sometimes
those very men will go into a corpor­
ation and swindle thousands.
I f yon think you can, through the
process of yonr social or political ma­
chinery, cheat Almighty God, let me
assure you that, while men may not un­
derstand, the great God of heaven and
earth understands, and you are just as
responsible as though you had done it
personally. Let us understand, then,
that while cannibalism maybe justified
on the high seas sometimes, the soul of
the world still revolts at it. Some sail­
ors came in the other day and reported
that, starving to death, they fell on a
brother sailor and ate his body. They
arrested them and put them in jail.

They cast lots. They could not execute
a man for saving himself from starva­
tion. _ But when a man eats his neigh­
bor for the very luxury of eating him,
just takes the choice parts o f his body
and discards the others, if there is any
law above the eirth or under it or on
it that w ill justify that I have yet to
find it.
Enter and abide, young man, in no
business that yon cannot put your heart
in. Some of us have to do things that
are disagreeable. I f you have to choose
yonr profession, choose something that
you can put your heart in, or you will
never be successful in it. They had a
competition in plans for a monument
for Walter Scott in Scotland, and a man
who was a simple carpenter once, Mr.
Kemp, won the prize, and the plans
were accepted for that monument that
stands now the tribute of Scotland’s
love to this matchless genius. Why did
lie succeed? As he passed along the
road one day a dusty carpenter hoy, a
gentleman driving in his carriage saw
he was tired and stopped his horse, and
the great man said, “ Get up and ride
with me.” So he became acquainted
with Sir Walter Scott and learned to
love and admire him. And it was one
of the inspirations of his life that led
him to become a master architect more
than a carpenter. And when they threw
the competition open to the world, this
man drew the matchless monument
that now stands there incarnated in
maible. Why? Because his heart was
in it. Other men could not compete
with him, because he had put his soul’
into it. The highest success In life is
that work in which a man can thus put
his soul, his heart. The heart, after
all, is worth more than mere success
and mere dollars and cents.
Let us at least hope that our children
w ill live to see the day that there shall
in deed and truth be a grand Court of
Honor in the midst of the world’s busi­
ness in which beauty and righteousness
shall rale.

A curious custom prevails at wed­
dings among the Soudanese Arabs. A ft­
er various ceremonies, including a pro­
cession and a m arriage feast, the almost
invariable accompaniments of weddings
in the east, the bridegroom is led about
9 o’ clock in the evening into a large
dimly lighted room. Here on one side,
huddled upon the floor, are the female
relatives and r'-iends of the bride. In
t he farther corner are four or five maid­
ens of the same height and size, wear­
ing precisely similar clothing and close­
ly veiled. One of these is the bride, and
the young man lias to find out which it
is. I f he has been wise, he has bribed
one of tho old women spectators to give
him a secret sign by wliich to guide his
choice. I f not, he attempts to seize the
veiled figure whom he suspects to he
his bride.
If possible, she slips from Ms grasp
and runs away, he in hot pursuit. An
exciting chase through the chamber
follows, until he is able to catch her,
when he tears away the veil from her
face. If it is his bride, the game is end­
ed, and another ceremony, called the
ghalwa, or bride dance, begins. But
if he has made a wrong choice he must
try again, and the captured girl, after
rearranging her disordered dress, takes
her place again among her companions.
Again he makes a selection, and aft­
er another long struggle succeeds in un­
veiling a second maiden, possibly only
to find, that he has caught the same girl
over again. Many hours may ho con­
sumed in this way, and sometimes
morning dawns before tbe unlucky
bridegroom secures bis bride.—Youth’s

One of Frances Willard’s intimate
friends says that the great temperance
leader is personally^ lovely woman
with delicate features and dainty hands,
and that her evident fascination for
men of taste is very evident. A gifted
man once wrote to her, “ Dear friend,
methiuks your heart deceives you, for
when we meet, though you hardly look
at me, you speak kindly, and I take
this as a token.” To which she replied,
“ Dear brother, this is the explanation:
I had a clear and direct gaze until study
weakened my eyes, and I protect them
now by studying the carpet.”
So uaffectedly kind and cordial to all
mankind is this famous lady that many
of them hare paid her the compliment
of offering her their hearts and hands.
Indeed so numerous and importunate are
her love letters that it is necessary to
have them answered by her secretaries
with the statement that she has no time
for other than business correspondence.
Some of these letters of late date prove
that age cannot wither nor custom stale
her infinite variety. Still, Miss "Wil­
lard has a high opinion of men in gen­
eral. though she has never honored any
man with her hand, and, to quote her
own words, “ If there is a spectacle
more odious and distasteful than a man
who hates women, it is a woman who
hates men. ” Hert heory of marriage m
relation to society gives this postulate.
“ Husband and wife are one, and that
one is—husband and w ife.”

The most remarkable case in Texas
legal history was tried at Oakland be­
fore Justice English—Mrs. Ella Hallo­
way versus J. H. Van Alstyne'. Tho
case consumed the day and was given
to the jury at night. Before retiring
the jury demanded that each man he
paid his 50 cent fee. The justice de­
murred and ordered them to bring in a
verdict, or they would get no fee. The
jury retired, and in 15 minutes entered
court. They had a sealed verdict.
Before turning it over to the justice
the jury struck for their hard earned
fees. Under protest the justice gave
each juror 50 cents. He opened the ver­
dict, which read, “ The jury cannot
agree.” This enraged the court. He
demanded the 50 cents each juror had
been paid. The jury refused, and the
court ordered them locked up until a
verdict was given pro or con.
After being out another hour the jury
reported they were still unable to agree.
Judge English then demanded the re­
turn of the fees. The jurors refused to
surrender, and a fine of §2.50 each was
assessed and their incarceration order­
ed. A compromise was finally reached
by four of the jury returning the fees
and the other two paying the fine of
§2.50. The higher courts w ill he in­
flicted with the case.— St. Louis GlobeDemocrat.

The striking of meclals in the coiners’
department of the United States mint
has for years been by means of the
screw and fly press. Tlio screw in this
press is 6 inches in diameter, and there
aro*three threads with a pitch of three
inches. The double lever attached to
the head o f the screw is 13 inches in
length, or 6jo feet either way from the
center o f the screw, and upon the ends
of the arms are mounted halls weigh­
ing about 150 pounds.
Three men are employed in the work-"
ing of the press— one to arrange the
blanks to be struck upon or between the
two hardened steel dies, while one at
each end of the lever furnishes the power
to raise the screw and then hy a rapid
movement cause the same to descend to
the work, they being careful at the
proper moment to step inside to avoid
being struck .hy tlio recoil of the lever.
Two and a hhlf revolutions of the screw
give with all the force the men can im­
part a blow or pressure equivalent to
250 tons.
In the striking of a 4 inch diameter
medal some 50 or 60 blows are neces­
sary to complete the medal. The blank,
which becomes hardened by the force
of each blow, must he annealed. Each
time consequently the amount o f labor
bestowed makes the cost of such medals
quite high.
Some 19 years s'nce the idea was con­
ceived that the introduction of hydraul­
ic pressure would he more satisfactory
and produce better results, both as to
cost and execution. The trial was then
made on an ordinary hydraulic press,
such as is used for forcing the wheels
of a locomotive on the axle, made at the
machine works of William Sellers & Co.
An accident occurring in the burst­
ing of the steel collar, hy which the
then coiner of the mint was injured,
had a dampening effect upon the
scheme, though the idea never met with
encouragement, until some two years
since, when an opportunity was offer­
ed to make a test of the pressures re­
quired to make the various coins. This*
being so satisfactory and having gain­
ed the conclusive knowledge that for
years had been only gness work, it en­
couraged the revival of the idea, and
plans and estimates were framed for a
press that should have a capacity of
striking pressure equivaleut to 2,000
The contract for this press was award­
ed to Messrs. William Sellers & Co. at
a cost o f §7.000. The designshaving
been approved, the press was completed
in September, and upon trial at the
works the recult was most satisfactory.
The dies used upon the trial were those
o f the 4 inch General Grant medal.
The blanks were submitted to a pres­
sure of 1,000,000 pounds, and the sec­
ond pressure after the annealing of the
blank almost finished the medal. One
blank, upon which the pressure was ex­
erted three times in succession, was
found to he more than was necessary.
The press Is complete in detail and
symmetrical in design. It is an arch or
oval in form, the base and head being
heavy iron castings, the whole being
secured by two cast steel bands 4 inches
thick and 6 inches wide. These hands
were submitted to a strain of 3,000,000
pounds each before being put in place.
The ram is located in the upper or head
casting and is placed in a steel case. It
is 25 inches in diameter, and the maxi­
mum pressure of 4,000 pounds a square
inch gives on this area the pressure of
2,000 tons. There is a graduated de­
vice attached by which any desired pres­
sure can be secured and held for any
length of time. Experiments will soon
enable the person in charge of the press
to determine the amount of pressure re­
quired for the various sizes of medal.
The movement of the ram up and
down is simply hy the pressure o f the
. oil from the tank, situated about 15 feet
above the room, the maximum pressure
being supplied hy a thin throw pump
and is only exerted during about the
last half inch of the stroke of the l-am.
The power to drive the pumps is sup­
plied by means of a 7 jl Horsepower
Eddy electric motor of a slow speed
type. For the annealing of blanks there
is a small gas oven, and it is very satis­
factory. It has been demonstrated hy
the experiments already mado that the
pressure of 20,000 pounds per square
inch is required to cause such metals as
gold, silver and copper to commence to
flow or become fluid. Very interesting
results are expected from the install­
ment of this plant, which will add so
much to the advantage of the govern­
ment.— Philadelphia Telegraph.

W h e n B o otli and Coquelin M et.
“ I often recall with interest,” writes
Mrs. Lucy H. Hooper from Paris to a
Philadelphia paper, “ the only time that
Constant Coquelin and Edwin Booth
ever met. They breakfasted with me on
the occasion of Booth’s first visit to Paris
after his London engagement. I longed
for an artist to sketch the pair, one as
perfect an embodiment o f comedy as the
other was of tragedy. Neither could
speak a word of the other’s language,
yet so vivacious were their gestures, so
expressive the changing play of their
features, that words were scarcely need­
ed. I, who acted as interpreter, found
it necessary merely to indicate what one
or the other wished to say, and then the
subject would he so vividly carried on
hy looks and movements that no further
indications were wanted.”

A Stone In H is H eart.
James O’Rourke died in Fitch hos­
pital recently. Postmortem Examiner
Thornbury held an autopsy and found
imbedded in the center of O’Rourke’s
heart a stone about the shape of an Eng­
lish walnut, which weighed between
four aud five ounces. The heart was
abnormally large, being nearly four
times as big as a man’s heart usually is.
It took up a large portion of the chest
cavity which is usually occupied by the
left Inng.
The stone was in the aortic cavity
and almost completely filled it up. To. •
only opening through which the blood
could flow was a space about l La- siziof a small goose quill, and for a long­
time past the heart had been able to do
only about one-eighth of its work. Tiuformation of stone is of a calcerous na­
ture. The case is without precedent
and opens a new field for surgical re­
search.— London Dispatch.
