Aged 29 yearsDeath Lib1coonditionall classes and conditions of men must bow yet strange as it may seem no one is ever fully prepared for the sum mons Life is sweet and lifes duties and cares so engross the mind as to keep r it unprepared for the great change that sooner or later comes to every human soul1 Surrounded by loved ones in the enjoyment of home and of the tender associations that have grown around him through n lifetime of struggle and trial what wonder In it that the man of younger years still wants to live to enjoy the fruits of his labors And as death is universal so too is sorrow When our own homes are invaded and our own hearts desolated When death comes to us like the flight of sortie poor bird across the dark cliff over some narrow valley for a while sunlight falls l on its wings and a moment more and all is dark again We era apt to feel that our grief is exceptional and our sorrow greater than that of others Billy as he was generally called was happy in his home devoted to his dear mother and trno to his friends The formjand face of dear Billy we shall see voiceiambitions are alike over and his busy life is exchanged for repose and rest His earthly record revealed the wise purpose of human existence and the divinity in man was made manifest by the void left in the aching hearts of weeping friends So sudden was his death that his life pawed away without c even the ministering hands of a dear motherNow we offer our words of sympathy to the dear mother and father nun thr- eeFbrothers whose hearts are most sadly bereft ousrelves remembering how i brittle is the thread of life and as we R linger by the shore of the shadowy river a sublime faith in our Heavenly Father lifts the dark cloud and with clearer vision we see beckoning hancs urging us on to the final reunion in the c Heavenly home He was laid to rest in the family fcuryingground where a E large concourse of friends and relatives had met to pay the last tribute of re pect to the

for the worlds Improvement The text is Ezekiel 92 Andone man among them was clothedwith linen with a writers ink- horn by his side The poem from whieh my text is taken is epic lyric dramatic weird and overpowering I t is more than Homeric or Dnntcaque No one ever had such hino dreams as Ezekiel In a vision this prophet had seen wrath ful angels destroying angels each with a sword but in my text he sees a merciful angel with an inkhorn The receptacle for the ink in olden time was made out of the horn of a cot or a ram or a roebuck as now it is made out of metal or glass and therefore was called the inkhorn as now we say inkstand VVe have all spoken of the power of the sword of the power of wealth of the power of office of the power of social influence but today 1 speak of the power for good or evil in the inkstand It is upon your tables holding a black or blue or red liquid It is a fortress an armory u gateway a ransom or a demolition You mistake says sumo one it is the pen that has the power No my friend What is the influence of a dry pen Puss it up and down a sheet of paper and it leaves no marl It expresses no opinion It gives no warning It spreads no Intel ligence It is the liquid which the pen dips out of the inkstand that does the work Here and there a celebrated pen with which a Declaration of lade pendence or a Magna Charta or a treay was signed has been kept In literary museum or national archives but for the most part the pens whether as of old made out of reed or till later of wing of bird or still later of metallic substance have disappeared while the liquid which the pens took from the inkstand remains In serous which if put together would be large enough to enwrap the worM For practical for moral for religious for eternal purposes I speak of the mission of the writers nkhorn First 1 mention that which is pure ly domestic The inkstand is in every household ft awaits the opportunity to express affection or condolence or advice Father uses it mother uses it the sons and daughters use it Iti tells the home news it announces theJ marriage the birth the departure the accident the last sickness the death That home inkstand what n mission it has already executed and what other mission will it yet fulfill Slay it stead off from all insincerity and all querulousness Let it tell only that which it would be well to read after the hand that wrote it and the band that received it can write no more Dip out of that inkstand only that which is paternal maternal filial sisterly brotherly Sacred let it be not to what are sometimes called the household gods but to the one and solitarys fordparents on descending grade of years and encouragement for those who are climbing the steeps Furthermore the inkstand of the business man has its mission Be demistsional man there will not be a day when you cannot dip from the ink- horn a message that will influence temporal and eternal destiny There is a rash young man running into wild speculation and with as much ink as you can put on the pen at one time you may save him from the Niagara rapids of a ruined life On the next street there is a young man lackrof patronage or mistake in purchase of goods or want of adaptation is on the brink of collapse One line of ink from your pen will save him from andrwinnhim a fortune which will enable him to become an endowcr of libraries an opener of art galleries and builder of churchesFurthermore great are the re sponsibilities of the authors inkhorn All the people or nearly all the people read and that which they read decides their

ping front the inkhorn nearest him a letter of gospel invitation gospel hope gospel warning gospel in struction The ink is all ready on a hundred thousand tables and beside it are the implements with which to dip it out Why not through such process have millions of souls brought to God before next hummer Hy ht ter you could make the invitation more effective than byword of mouth The invitation from your lips may be argued Lack may evoke querulous reply may be answered by a joke but a good warm jjospei letter written il prayer and started with prayer and followed by prayer will be read over and over again and cannot be an swered in a frivolous way It will speak from the table by day and night or if pettishly torn up will In its scattered fragments speak louder than when it remained whole Within arms reach of where you sit there onfwing with message of light and love The other angels spoken of In my text were destroying angels and each had what the Hible culls a slaugh ter weapon in his hand It was a Godrhasten the time when the last lance shall be shivered and the Imist bat swordssheathed never again to leave thrt scabbard and the angel of the text who Matthew Henry says was tho Lord Jesus Christ shall from the full inkhorn of His mercy give a sav ing call to all nations That day may lot far off but it is helpful to think of its conning As Dr 1alcigh de dared that when 50 miles at sea off the coast of New England the cattle on board the ship s well as himself scented the clover on the New England hills so we amid nil1 The tossing waves of the worlds controversies inhale the redolence of the white lilies of universal peace Ij it not time that the boasted inven tion of new and more explosive and more widely devastating weapons of death be stopped forever and the Gospel have a chance and the question be not asked How many shots Yeah be fired in n minute but now many souls may be ransomed in a day The world needs less powder andtmore churches less power to destroy and more power to save Oh I am sick of the war cries and the extinguished eyesight and the splintered bones and the grave trenches and the widowhood mind orphanage and childlessness which sob and groan and die in the wake of the armies on both sides of the sea Oh for less of the slaughter weapon and more of the evangelizing inkhorn Oh for the stopping of the science o assassination that crime of crimes that woe of woes that horror of hor rors that hell of hells war which this moment stands reeking with blood and washing itself in tears Old blaspheming the heavens and pushing off the edge of this life men who have as much right to live as you and I have and blasting homes in which there dwells as much loveli ness as in our own Would that the merciful angel of my text tale the last weapon of war and fling it oft and fling it down with such force that it shall clang on the lowest round of the perdition where the first lkeen edge of human strife was sharpened War In the name of Almighty God and of mull the homesteads it has destroyed and is now destroying I hate it I denounce it I curse it- Hour Wlile is trileand71U other book that was ever printed is ns true as that book which Moses be gan and John flnishe1then the time will come when all the weapons of cruelty will stop and the inkhorns evangelization will have their way In the museums of the world the bombvwill be kept as curiosities and chil dren will be incredulous as parents tell thent that civilized nations once employed such instruments of death and more incredulous when told by their parents that the army that killed time most men was considered the most glorious army The red horse of carnage that St John saw in vision and the black horse of famine and the pale horse of death will be stabled and the white horse of prosperity and peace mounted by the Bingof Kings will lead the great army with banners Through the convicting converting sanctifying power of the Eternal Spirit may we nil inarch in that procession Hail thou Mighty hider of the white horse in the iual triumph Sweep down and sweep by thou Angel of the New Covenant with the inkhorn of the worlds evangelization The mountains anti the hills shall break forth into singing and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands Instead of the thorn shall come up the fir tree and instead of the brier slial1 come up the myrtle tree

s The depopulation of the rural dis tracts of England is beginning to cabs serious concern to the government From statistic I recently collated it is learned that in 1801 36 per cent o the population lived in towns of 1000 in habitants and upward whereas in 1891 64 per cent of the population inhabited towns exceeding 4000 in population The rural population in 1891 on 31S77 000 acres was only 5334000 persons out of a total population of 29002525 It will be seen from these latter figures bays a London exchange that lese than onefifth of the whole people live in the country and are engaged in rural occu pation Lord Avebury in commenting upon these figure ascribed the decrease of rural population to the failure of the country schools to foster interest in country life sad objects There hays been other causes at work however The great development in the pleasui ts and recreations of town life the in creased interest in politics agricultural depression miserable labor wages and last but perhaps not least the local tyranny of squire and parson have contributed to this result It is perhaps I yet to be teen whether the development of local government will have ttatfe I irable effect of making country life more interesting and tolerable a 4 HAY IN ROUND BALKS i Pak4 1st This lay It oeI- M p isI Ioae aaa Trs La Otaev lvaalesea IIHay as well as cotton iis put up tows i days in

way but undeveloped ones will never keep a family lint sir your daughter loves me and can you not give me some more definite answer to my suit something in which 1 cun plate more hope of u filial consummation of our wishes Xo Again I say develop the prospects of which you talk so glibly before you talk to me of marriage with my laughter In the future until they are developed I must inform you that my house will be closed to you uIs that Xothing more I have no time for this kind of nonsense If the girl loves you it will not hurt her to wait until your socalled prospects are in better condition than they are at present Good day The conversation had taken place in wlalthrhaulelfor the hand of hankerI Xoyes daugh tel had been known to the wealthy moan since boyhood He had gone to school with the bankers daughter Margie until the girl had reached the age where her father thought the public schools beneath the dignity of his house The two children had loved each other ever since the days when they made mud pies together or dug holes in the sand along the shore of the lake When she had reached a coming out age she had gone into society a society which he could not enter but through it all she remained true to the promise made in her girl hood daysthat Edward and Edward only would she marry Edward Chalmers left the public fcehools at IS The first work that he had found was as a clerk in a railroad office but the labor was uncongenial and he failed to advance in it after two years of trial His ambition was a place on the staff of a lady newspaper He knew one or two young reporters and the life they led appealed to his fancy But it was not until he had S pawed t2 that he was offered an opportunity to realize his ambition He was given a chance as a space writer or emergency reporter on one of the city dailies From a financial stand point it was not much of a situation but when the eight dollars that he earned the first week was h increased U ten the second and twelve the third he felt that his rising prospects war ranted his speaking to Margies fa ther But Margies father knew more of the newspaper business than did the young suitor for the girls hand in luarraige He had at one time been appointed receiver for a bankrupt newspaper and had investigated the pay rolls to some extent at that time In his estimation the newspaper man made at the best but a precarious living and then too he had other plans for his daughter besides seeing her married to a beggarly newspaper reporter who could give her neither fame nor fortune And so it came about that the young man was uncere moniously dismissed Extra paper here All bout the big bank failure The cry went from one end of the great city to the other as rapidly as enterprising newsboy could travel The news the extra contained traveled even faster than the newsboys Tell phone and telegraph lines were brought into use to transmit the ales sage to interested parties that the banking house of Xoyes Co had failed to open its doors 1eoplt poured out of the homes stores and factoriesand gathered about the bank building They were depositors men and women whose savings had been 4 carried there to he saved for them men and women whose greatest inter est In life seemed now to he locked be hind those closed doors Rapidlthel crowd grew until there were hundreds of people standing in the cold about the great building Humor followed rumor through the crowd The heavy doors opened and a boy came out lcwas huta young clerk and could have known but little of the affairs of the hank He said nothing as he pushed his way through the mass of despond emit humanity The failure of the bank meant loss of employment to him and the gloom on his face waR transferred to every other face in all the great struggling crowd They say its a had un said one nun to a little woman beside him a Dont suppose we will ever git anything In the announcement of the failure in the late afternoon papers was the r rBtateinent that the bankrupt bankerc would say nothing for publication There was not an afternoon paper in the fity that contained a line from himThe morning dailies attempting to profit by the failure of their afternoon contemporaries were making every possible effort to secure the desired in terview Three of the Pest men on the staff of the morning Times had c tried and failed The banker had de nied every newspaper man an inter view He had nothing to say to the pressWeve got to get that interview with Noyes said the city editor of the Time when the last of the three mea to when he had given the as sipMMBt reported failure Is there aayoae om the staff who knows him personally Ido said Chalmers I live in the- mei suburb with Turn have been in Us home hundreds of times and 1tWIIR I oa i itnportikt inIII sonal subject about one month ngJJo Can you sec him 1 asked the citj editor I can try replied Chalmers Can you get him to talk if you see him I think 1 can It is 1030 now It will take an hour for you to get to his house for he is at home If you can get anything put it on the wire Jont try to get buck with it if the telegraph oflice iis openChalmers jumped for his coat andI hat and made for the door Ill put you on a salary if you suc coed shouted the city editor after him us he rushed out of the door ot time city room To Chalmers that promise was siifli cientinducement He would have mad Banker Noyes talk if he had had to do so at the point of a revol ver He knew the house of the hanker as well as he knew his own He knew just where the bankrupt man slept he knew the manner in which the doublet entrance doors in the front of thei house opened During the ride of an hour to the suburb in which the banker lived Chalmers did some rapid thinking and by time time he reached the house hei was prepared for his campaign He was a small man and he intended tall darkg ness of the night Arriving at the house he rang the front door bell and in a moment aa voice from the secondstory window demanded to know what he wanted Got a message for you replied Chalmers impersonating a telegraph messenger boy and keeping well in the dark so that he could not bseen Stick it under the door said the hanker Cant do it replied Chalmers Got to give it to you personally and1 get your receipt ou the book Jt was n cold night in the middle of January hut so anxious was tim banker to get that message that h did not stop to dress or to call anyone to get it for him hut vent to the loot nt once in his night clothes Chalmers heard the iinside door open and pulling his ulster moroI closely around him so as to avoid be ing recognized until time proper mo ment he stepped back from the out side door lIe knew there was a spring lock on the inside door and that iif the banker had to step far enought away from it to open time outside door tho chances were it would swing to be hind him andso cut oil his retreat Ho henrd the inside door open and then as the outside door opened he heard the one Inside close with a snap In stantly he stepped onto the doorstep maid inside closing tthe outside door behind him and stood with his buck against it- Where is that message V asked Noyes shivering in the cold air of the vestibuleIts verbal one replied Chalmers I want to know something about the condition ofsyour bank The receipt for the message will be an exhaustive answer to that question What are you doing here 1 de manded the banker He recognized the voice of the reporter though it was too dark to distinguish his features th only light beinga faint glimmer through the transom Developing my prospects repliedI Chalmers You are taking a scoundrels ad vantage of me- Whatever it is I must insist on a answer to my question as 1 have still another one to ask- I have nothing to say lint I think you have and Chal mers opened the door behind him andi let in another batch of the lanitar airAfter an argument of some ten min utes with repeated doses of 20below zero atmosphere administered to tlm scantily dressed banker who could neither get back into the house nor t the bell olltoietht desired informa thou was forthcoming And now said Chalmers that yon have given me a satisfactory answer to that question do you think that my prospects have been developed sum ciently to warrant you in giving many encouragement shout that little matter which we discussed hi your o fice a few vecjcs agor My laughter shall never marry an- be9rgarlynewspaperreportersnappe I L d the banker Oh I dont know said Chalmers t1s for that I guess you cant do much better than I CUll just now Ac cording to your own statement you1 have not a dollar in the world midJ enough personal paper out to keep you poor the remainder of your life A for me I have enough to start house keeping on in a small way and for this nights work I am to go on the stn salary list Some people are worse o financially than I am you for in stanceLook here young nian do you lno K that you are giving me a cold sufficient to kill a stronger man by keeping me hereI wont detain you a moment afte you have given me a satisfactory answer to my last question Yell then take her if she will have you but never ask me for a cent JI wont give it to you if you are stan ingThanks said Chalmers and he was out of the door midoff to tai telegraph office stopping only long1 enough to give the bell button a bar push Thei next mornings Times had the only interview with the bankrupt banker Chalmers said nothing as to how he had gotten it and when he married the daughter some two months later every newspap- man in the city said it was the daug 1 ters influence that had given the emergency reporter the inside trac i J at the ldopportuneM THE BEST HOME FINANCIERS Women Who Have Not Spent Too Much Time In Aecinlrlnir Ool 1rge Hdticnlloii Mrs Unwell Sagr writing in Sue cess says College education fortt women it seems to me is being carried jf to excess For a few women it is ex cellent but for the majority I think It is needless There are ample oppor unities for young women to secure mental breadth and culture without devoting four years to higher mathe matics the dead languages and kin deed subjects A prominent college president wrote to me asking for a substantial sutra to enable a young woman to complete her Greek studies My reply was that I did not believe that an exhaustive study of Greek would make any young woman a hap pier or more useful member of society Education that teaches women to view the conditions and problems of life in the light of sound common sense that imparts the power orae complishment in practical matters is the education that young women most need The wife is almost as important a factor in her husbands success or s ifailure as he iis To succeed in these helphinttied She should not only linen all about the matters of nor own house hold but should know as much as pos sable about her husbands business The advice of a clearheaded woman is often
