appoint only men of military learning and training and not place the lives of our men in the hands of broken down politicians who more than likely ought to be in the penitentiary IT is amusing to read

the American navy In the height of the storm Lieut Young an oflicer named Conway and the quartermaster risked their lives in a catamaran to carry a line ashore The cigar shaped boat was simply a toy in the boiling surf but after swim ming and pushing it the tired men finally reached land Notwithstand ing their exhausted condition they broke into a lifesaving station man ned a boat and succeeded in saving a few men When the Huron went down Lieut Young walked until he found a telegraph station and sent the details to Washington Naturally the news created a tremendous sensation and Young was

the club thinking that the import ance of the affair warranted the in trusion But the minister was vax s succeeded Washington furious What do you mean sir he by coming here This isnt the place for business This discourtesy threw Young into a rage He flung the papers into the face of the irate diplomat and vehem ently promised him a thrashing if he would come out from the sacred pre cincts of

Lady STANFORD April SO These days of wars and rumors of wars are bringing to the surface rominescences from m ny old people who encountered the highrolling waves of the fathomless sea of trouble given rise to by the bloody civil war which will remain in their memories as long as life lasts It is a frequent occurrence to read in the daily papers a story relating to about the time the war was in progress and now Aunt Mollie Nunnelley the estimable wife of Lincolns big trader Phillip P Nunnelley tells with infinite pleasure how the late lament el Judge Mike H Owsley upon one occasion rescued her from a perilous situation in the midst of the war times of the 60s Mr and Mrs Nunnelley were residing in Pulaski county two andahalf miles this side of Somerset on the farm where a Mr Lewis now lives CoL Frank Wolfords daring regiment of cavalry of which Judge M H Owsley was the Captain was in camp in the suburbs of Somerset as was also CoL Bramletts troop One day a soldier of toe latter regiment sneaked out of camp and went through the country like a lion seeking whom he might de vour He was a frightful looking specimen of humanity and was consid ered the toughest and most desperate character in CoL Bramletts army He finally reached the country residence of Mr Nunnelley who was absentand his wife and Mrs Ike Cowen were there alone Entering the house with a drawn sword this desperate soldier loudly swore that he was going to commit some fearful crimes and ad ded I will then kill you de fenseless a bad man The two ladies were terrified The warrior bold was staggering drunk and they managed to keep out of his way frightened almost to death and 0 WSLEYS lib Oaring ddcreaturesIm it seemed that no was near How prowling hem ever a horseman by had tak en in the situation and on his flying steed had hastily informed Capt Owsley and with ten subordinates that officer was soon at the home of Mr Nunnelley The soldier defiantly told he would leaving the and brandished him alive but he handled the sword dexterously and finally slashed a sol on the shoulder producing a fear charge on the 11 men when the cry relate with pleasure that he tumbled to the racket I did not ask Mrs Nun who will take advantage of women to be speedily sent where the worm dieth the fire is never quenched With the dignity characteristic of him Capt then allayed the fears the assured their future protection Though he sleeps in the grave valiant and remember bered by admiring thousands bril liant statesman brave soldier and true friend in no breast is there a warmer feeling

in America Cincinnati Enquire- A movement has been started in this city to have the Russian Hebrews liv ing in the United States raise a fund with which to purchase a battle ship to be presented to the United States GovernmentThe mover in this patriotic project is Mr Jacob llosenGeld of 707 Main street In 1SS2 when thousands of Hebrews immigratad to America to escape the persecutions inflicted upon them in Russia Mr Rosen field was among them All of hs people le says suffered so many hardships and abject miseries in Russia that their new home in AraerSci where they are permitted to enjoy liberty and equality is the greatest blessing that they could wish for Now that this nation is involved in war he thinks it a good time for the Russian Hebrews to show that they love their adopted county and attest their appreciation of the many they have obtained here We are all patriotic he says and this coun try is in many respects dearer to us than it is to the native born Americans because we can better appreciate the advantages of liberty and equality He has suggested the purchase of a battle ship by the Russian Hebrews to a number of his countrymen and they are all heartily in favor of He says there are several hundred thous and of them 111 this country and that each wo aid contribute 10 or more to ward the purchase of the proposed ship He also spoke to Rabbi Isaac M Wise abut the matter and he gave him much encouragement A mass Russian Hebrews will be held here to arrange plans for carrying out the project A torpid liver robs you of ambiton and ruins your health DeWitts E

in the 3car 1S75 there were over 10000 people slain b wild beasts and that in the year 1S7G there were in India over 20 000 people destro3cd by wild animals But there is a monster in our own land

and a sum in addition a subtraction from 3our days of depression and an addition to yonr lays of joy If God will help me I will 10111 pel you to see the bright ligbt that there is in the clouds and

on God He gets a distaste for prayer meetings With plenty of bank stocks and plenty of government securities what does that man know of the prayer give me this iuy my daily bread few men largely in world are bringing souls to Christ or showing selfdenial for others or are eminent for piety You can count them all upon your eight fingers and two thumbs One of the old covetous souls when he was sick and sick unto death used to have a basin brought basin filled with gold and his only amuse ment and the only relief he got for his ioflamcd hands was running them down through the gold arid turning it up in the basin Oil what infatuation and what destroying power money has for many a man Now you were sail ing at J 0 knots time hour toward these vortices of worldlincss what a mercy it was that honest defalcation Time same divine hand that crushed your storehouse bank your ofiice your insurance lifted you out of de struction Ilie day you honestly sus pended in business made your fortune for eternity Oh you say I could get along very well myself but I am so disap pointed that I can not leave a tence to my children My brother the same financial misfortune that is going to save your soul will save your children With anticipation of a large fortune how much industry would your children have without which habit of industry there is no safety Time young man would say Well theres no need of my working ni3 father will soon step out and then Ill have just what You can not hide from him how much you are worth You think you are hiding it he knows all about it lie can tell you almost to a dollar Perhaps he has been to the county of fice and searched the records of and mortgages and he has added it all up and he has made an estimate of how long you will probably stay in this world and is not as much worried about your rheumatism and shortness of breath as you are The only for tune worth anything that you can give your child is the fortune you put in his head and heart Of all the young men wbo started life with 10 000 capital how many turned out well I do not know haf a dozen The best inheritance a young man can have is the feeling that he has to fight his own battle and that life is a struggle into which he must throw body mind and soul or be disgrac fully worsted Where are the burial places of the men who started life with a fortune Some of them in the potters field some in the suicides grave Cut few of these men reached 85 years of are They drank smoked they gambled In them the beast destroyed time man Some of them lived long enough to get their tunes and went through them The majority of them did not live to get their inheritance Prom the gin shop or house of infamy they were brought home to their fathers house and in delirium began to pick off loathsome reptiles from the embroidered pillow and to fight back imaginary devils And then they were laid out in highly upholstered parlor the casket covered with flowers by indulgent parents flowers suggestive of a resurrection with no hope As you eat this morning at your breakfast table and looked into the faces of your children perhaps you said within yourself Poor tliings How I wish 1 could start them in life with a competence How I have been assails Inn very carT PlY sensation because retrenchment necessity t111a n ln d How this ina your compl Iwant the 1 emi Ike misfortunes von successful tlecdu

prospect for the llcav eu of your children is mightily You may have lost a toy but you huvv won a palace How hnrdly t hall they that have riches enter into time kingdom of God It is easier for a camel to go through a needles 030 than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of Heaven What does that mean It means that the grandest blessing Jed ever bestowed upon you was to take your money away from you Let me here say in pass do not put much stress on the treasures of this world You Ian not take them along with yon At any rate 3011 can not take them more than two or three miles 3011 will have to leave them at the eemeter3 had three collins So fond was he of his life that he dcuroed that first he should be buried in a collin of and that thin that should be in closed in a coffin of silver utah that should b inclosed in a coffin of iron and then a large amount of treasure should he thrown in over his holly And so he was buried and the men who buried him were slain so that no one might know where he was buried and no one might there interfere with his treasures Oh men of the world who want to take your money with you better have three collins Again I remark you ought to make the very bst of your bereavements The whole tendency is to brood over these separations and to give much time to the handling of mementoes of the departed and to make long visita tions to time and Oh I can never look up again hope is gone 1113 courage is gone my religion is gone m3 faith in God is gon Oh the wear and tear and exhaustion of this loneliness The most frequent bereavement is the loss of children If your departed child intel lived as long as you have lived do you not suppose that he would have had about the same amount of trouble and trial that have had If could make a choice of your child between 10 years of annoyance loss vexation ex asperation and bereavements and 10 years in Heaven would you take the responsibility of choosing the former Would you snatch away the cup of eternal bliss and put into that childs hands the cup of bereavements Instead of the complete safety into which that child has been lifted would you like to hold it down to the risks of this mortal state Would you like to keep it out on a sea in which there have been more shipwrecks than safe voyages Is it not a comfort to you to know that the child instead of being besoiled and Hung in to time of sin is swung clear into the skies Are not those children to be congratulated that the point of celestial bliss which you expect to reach by a pilgrimage of 50 or GO or 70 years reached at a Hash If the 10010 children who hind entered Heavon had gone through the average of human Ufo on earth are you sure till those 10000 would have finally reached the blissful terminus Besides that my friends you arc to look at this matter as a self denial on your part for their benefit If your children want to go off in a Ma3day party if your children want to goon a flowery and musical you consent You might prefer to have them with you but their absence satisfies you Well your departed children have gone out in a Ma3day party amid flowery and musical entertainment amid joys and hilarities forever That ought to quell some of your grief the thought of their glee So it ought that you could make the best of all bereavements The fact that have so many friends in Heaven will make your departure very cheerful When you are going on a voyage everything depends upon where your friends are if they are on the wharf that you leave or on the wharf toward which you arc going to sail In other words the more friends yon have in Heaven time easier it will be to get away from the world The more friends lucre the more bitter goolb3s the more friends there the more glorious welcomes Some of you have so many brothers sisters children friends in Heaven that I do not know hard how you are going to crowd through Wiieii the vessel came from foreign Ian Is and brought a prince to our harbor the ships were covered with bunting and you remember how the menofwar thundred broalsidcs but tluro was no joy there compared with the joy which shall demonstrated when you sail up the broad bay of Heavenly salutation Time more friends you have there tin easier your own transit What is death to a mother whose children are in Heaven Why there is no more grief in it than there is in her going into nursery amid the romp anti laugh of her household Though all around may be dark see you unit time bright light in the clouds that light the irradiated faces of your glorified kin dredSo also my friends I would jiave you make the best of your sicknesses When you see one move oil with elas tic step and in full sometimes you become impatient with your lame foot When a man describes an object a mile off and you can not see it at all you become impatient of your dim eye When you hear of a well man making a great achievement you become impatient with your de pressed nervous system or your dilapi dated health I will tell you how you can make the worst of it Brood over it brood over all these illnesses and your nerves will become mon your dyspepsia more aggravated and your weaknesses more appalling But that is the devils
