the counties or perhaps the willingness of the counties to accept will be a live question before the next State Legislature Is it not important to know heir the candidates for the Legislature will

Urge jVn Early Settlement the UiilieiiltiCH Pittsburgh Pa Aug tl7ust n faint glimmer of hope that the great tecl workers strike will be settled was embodied in a statement given out by President Shaver of the Dual fiamated association Monday night When asked if he would pursue the same policy in ordering a strike in the mills of the Federal Steel the rational Steel and the National Tube Cos as he dud in calling out tine Wren in the mills of the American Tin Plate Co he replied 4tlf it had not been for this de termination on my part the generalI strike would have been rdered on Saturday night Before calling out the tin workers and after failing to t t any satis iacticri from the officials of the American Steel and the American SteelJ Hoop Cos President Shatter sent a telegram to Vice President Warner Arms of the American Tin Platt Co notifying him that under Article 13 Section 35 of the constitution of the Amalgamated association he would ba obliged 4o call out the tin workers in all of the mills owned by the Unit ed States steel corporation unless the difficulty was settled within a period of ten days Notice Sent Out As a result of this notice Mr Arms succeeded in getting together an other conference and a vain attempt was made to settle the dispute and prevent a stripe which would involve the tin mills That conference was the one that hrokiup in the lintel Lincoln three weeks ago list Satui slay i In order to le equally fair to the other constituent companies of the c United States steel corporation nnd JUcord them the same treatment President Shaffer has sent a similar notice to the ofticcrs of the Federal Steel Co the National Steel Co rind the National Tube Co giving them the sane time in which to nuke any efforts they may desire to bring about a settlement or he will put in force This wine clause in the Amalgamated i 1 oeiatinn eonstif i L Prepared to Come Ont It is rumored that the delay in issuing the general order will be at Insntiti until early next week In the mean time the men in the mills of these three companies will be prepared to come out when the strike orderv is issued R tic possibility of a settlement of the strike is based on the bare hope that the officials of the three addi tional companies will bring to hear sufficient influence to urge an adjust ment of the difficulty before the strike order is issued President r Shaffer did not express any hope that this would be done nor did lie even discuss the matter but the inference was quickly seen that there was such a probability in sight It is a faint one though and but little interest was taken in it in the general olfices of the Amalgamated associa ion Monday THE UNION MINERS They VIII Not De Called Out In S7m pathy Strike in Aid of the Steel Workers

Americans and the lowest for the benighted foreigners who presumably believe iirdieapness Ordinarily the American pays about 40 per cent more than does the foreigner for Americanmade goods This method of selling our goods was working with the smoothness of welltoiled machinery when the Ha waiian islands were annexed to this country Then the trouble began As the Hawaiian has never voted on the McKinley and Dinglej billy how could our manufacturers tell whether these Pacific islanders preferred high or low prices As a result some manu facturers kept on selling goods to the Ihiwaiians just as if theywere still foreigners while other manufactur ers treated the Hawaiian as full fledged Americans and entitled to genuine American prices Chaos fol lowed As our western tariff wall does not stop at the Pacific coast limit has been extended around the Hawaiian islands American goods sole in Honolulu at low prices were brought back to San Francisco and sold at a profit at less than the prices fixed by the manufacturers on the same goods in California As it is contrary to one of the fundamental laws of political economy to have the stung goods selling at the same time and in the same market at two prices the consternation of the manufactur ers may be imagined They began to blame each other and to apply harsh names to those who were not prompt in extending the blessings of high prices to all under the folds of the American flag The discussion of this question has been raging among tho manufacturers for a year One of the latest contributions to this dis cussion is in the Iron Age of

Louis Klopsch N T- In this discourse Dr Talmage cor rects some of the false notions about religion and represents it as being Joy inspiring instead of dolorous text 2 Chronicles 99 Of spices great abundance neither was there any such spice as the queen of Sheba gave King Solomon What is that building out yonder glittering in the suu Have you not heard It is the house of the forest of Lebanon King Solomon has just taken to it his bride the princess of Egypt You see the pillars of the portico and a great tower adorned with 1000 shields of gold hung on the outside of the tower500 of the ehields of gold manufactured at Sol omons order f00 were ctfpiured by howltheySolomon goes up the ivory stairs of his throne between 12 lions in statuary and sits down on the back of the golden bun the head of the huge beast turned toward the people The family and the attendants of the king are so many that the caterers of the palace have to provide every day 100 sheep and 13 oxen besides the birds and the venison I hear the stamping and pawing of 4000 fine horses in the royal stables There were important officials who had charge of the work of gathering the straw and the barley for these horses King Solomon was an early riser tradition says and used to take a ride out at daybreak and when in his white apparel behind the swiftest horses of all the realm and followed by mounted archers in purple as the cavalcade dashed through the streets of Jerusalem I suppose it was some thing worth getting up at five oclock in the morning to look at Solomon was not like some of the kings of the present daycrowned imbecility All the splendors of his palace and retinue were eclipsed by his intellectual power Why he eeemed to know everything He was the first great naturalist the world ever saw Peacooks from India strut ted the basaltic walk and apes chat tered in the trees and deer stalked the parks and there were aquariums with foreign fish and aviaries with foreign birds and tradition says these birds were so well tamed that Solomon might walk clear across the city under the shadow of their wings as they hovered and flitted about him More thaTf1titStton for ii didd- ies that he made and guessed He and King Hiram his neighbor used to sit by the hour and ask riddles each one paying in money if he could not answer or guess the riddle The x Solomonic navy visited all the world and the sailors of course talked about the wealth of their king and about the riddles and enigmas that lie made and solved and the news spread until Queen Balkis away off south heard of it and sent messen gers with a few riddles that she would like to have Solomon solve and a few puzzles that she would like to have him find out She sent among other things to King Solomon a dia mom with a hole so small thatn needle could not penetrate it asking him to thread that diamond and Sol t omon took a worm and put it at the opening in the diamond and the worm crawled through leaving the thread in the diamond The queen also sent a goblet to Solomon asking him to fill it with water that did not pour from the sky and that did not ruhoutfroptthe earth and imme diately Solomon put a slave on the back oia swift horse and galloped jam around and around the park un til the horse was night exhausted and from the perspiration of the horse time goblet was filled She also sent to King Solomon 500 cloys in girls dress and 500 girls in boys 3ress wondering if he would be acute enough to find out the deception Immediately Solomon when he saw diem wash their faces knev from the way they applied the wafer that It was all a cheat Queen Balkis was so pleased with iJ the acuteness of Solomon that she E said Ill just go and se him for i cavali t ots and charioteers jingling harness and clattering

that r tall theologians agree in making Solr MBOR a type of Christ and id waking g the queen of Sheba a type of every ra Arntk seeker and I wvll take the re feasibility X t saying that all the fjikeriard sand cassia and frankm Ise which tie queen ofgh pa H Y- i i 00 i r brought to King Solomon are mightily suggestive of the sweet spices of our holy religion Christianity is not a collection of sharp technicalities and angular facts and chronological tables and dry statistics Our rell gion is compared to frankincense and to cassia but never to nightshade dashloffountains It is an opening of opal ine gates It is a collection of spices Would God that we were as wise in taking spices to our Divine King as Queen Balkis was wise in taking the spices to the earthly Solomon The fact is that the duties and cares of this life coming to us from time to time are stupid often and inane and intolerable Here are men who have been battering climbing pounding hammering for 20 years 40 years 50 years One great long drudgery has their life been their faces anxious their feelings be numbed their days monotonous What is necessary to brighten up that mans life and to sweeten that acid disposition and to put sparkle into the mans spirits The spicery of our holy religion Why if between the losses of life there dashed the gleam of an eternal gain if between the betrayals of life there came the gleam of the undying friendship of Christ if in dull times in business we found ministering spirits flying to and fro in our office and store and shop everyday life instead of being a stupid monotone would be a glor ious inspiration penduluming be tween calm satisfaction and high rap tureHow any woman keeps house with out the religion of Christ to help her is a mystery to me To have to spend the greater part of ones life as many women do in planning for the meals and stitching garments that will soon be rent again and deploringbreakages and supervising tardy subordinates and driving off dust that soon again will settle and doing the same thing day in and day out and year in and year out until the hair silvers and the back stoops and the spectacles crawl to the eyes and the grave breaks open under the thin sole of the shoe oh it is a long monotony But when Christ comes to the drawingroom and comes to the kitchen and comes to the nursery and comes to the dwelling then how cheery become all womanly duties She is never alone now Martha gets through fretting and joins Mary at the feet of Jesus AH day long Deborah is happy because she can help Lapjdoth Hannah because she can make a coat for young Sam uel Miriam because she can watch her infant brother Rachel because she can help her father water the stock the widow of Sarepta because the cruse of oil is being replenished 0 woman having in your pantry a nest of boxes containing all kinds of condiments why have you not tried iin your heart and life the spicerj ofi our oly regionr Iprth Martha riItI Jabqut la my things dt oUt tg needful and Mary hath chosen that good part which shall not be taken away from herI must confess that a great deal of the religion of this day is utterly insipid There is nothing piquant or elevating about it Men and women go around humming psalmsin a minor key and cultivating melancholy and their worship has in it more sighs than ruptures We do not doubt their piety Oh no But they are sitting at a feast where the cook has for gotten to season the food Everything is flat in their experience and in their conversation Emancipated from sin and death and hell and on their way to a magnificent Heaven they act as though they were trudging on toward ah everlasting Botany Bay Religion does not seem to agree with them It seems to catch in the windpipe and become a tight strangulation instead of an exhilaration AH the infidel books that have been written from Voltaire down to Herbert Spencer have not done so much damage to our Christianity as lugubrious Christians Who wants a religion woven out of the shadows of the night Why go growling on your way to celestial en throneintnt Come out of that cave 1 and sit down in the warm light of the Sun of Righteousness Away with your odes to melancholy and Herveys I Meditations Among the Tombs Then let our songs abound And entry tear be dry Were marching through Emmanuels ground To fairer worlds on high- I have to say also that we need to put more spice and enlivenment our religious teaching whether it be in the prayermeeting or in the Sunday school or in the church We ministers need more fresh air and sunshine in our lungs and our heart and our head Do you wonder that the world is so far from being converted when you find so little vivacity in the pulpit and in the pew We want like the Lord to plant in our sermons and exhortations more lilies of the field We want fewer rhetorical elaborations and fewer susquipedalian wbrds and when we talk about shadows we do not want I we1i1t t talk about idiosyncrasies or if a stitch in the back we do not want to talk about lumbago but in the plain ver nacular of the great masses preach that Gospel which proposes to make all men happy honest victorious and free In otherwordswe want inure cinnamon and less gristle Let this be so in all the different departments of work to which the Lord calls us Let us be plain Let us be earnest Let us be commonsensical When we talk to the people in a vernacular they can understand they WilJL be very glad to come and receive the truth we pre sent Would to God that Queen Balkis would drive her spiceladeH drome daries into alt eur sermons and prayer tweeting exhortations crethuitbatwe want more life read spice in our Christian work Thr poor do not want so much to hi groaned over as sung to With the breadand medicines and garments you give them let there be an accompaniment of smiles and brisk encouragement Do not stand and talk to them about the wretchedness of their abode and the hunger of their looks and the hardness of their lot Ah they know it better than you can tell them Show them the bright side of the thing if there be any bright side Tell them good times will come Tell them that for the children of God there is immortal rescue Wake them up out of their stolidity by an inspiring laugh and while you send in help like the queen of Sheba also send in the spices We need more spice and enlivenment in our church music Churches sit discussing whether they shall have choirs or precentors or organs or bass viols or cornets I say take that which will bring out the most inspiring mu sic If we had half as much zeal and spirit in our churches as we have in the songs of our Sunday schools it would not be long before the whole earth would quake with the coming God Why ninetenths of the people in church do not sing or they sing so feebly that the people at their elbows do not know they are singing People mouth and mumble the praises of God but there is not more than one out of a hundred who makes a joyful noise unto the loch of Our Salvation Sometimes when the congregation forgets itself and is all absorbed in the goodness of God or the glories of Heaven I get an intimation of what church music will be a hundred years from now when the coming genera tion shall wake up to its duty Now I want to impress you with the fact that religion is sweetness and perfume and spikenard and saf fron and cinnamon and cassia and frankincense and nit sweet spices together Oh you say I have not looked at it as such I thought it was a nuisance It had for me a repulsion I held my breath as though it were a malodor I have been ap palled at its advance I have said if I have any religion at all I want to have just as little of it as possi ble to get through with Oh what n mistake you make my brother The religion of Christ is a present and everlasting redolescence It coun teracts all trouble Just put it on the stand beside the pillow of sickness It catches in the curtains and per fumes the stifling air It sweetens the cup of bitter medicine and throws a glow on the gloom of the turned lattice It is a balm for the aching sideand a soft bandage for the tem ple stung with pain It lifted Samuel Rutherford into a revelry of spiritual delight while he was in physical ag onies It helped Richard Baxter un til in the midst of such a complica tion of diseases as

martyrdoms and the fragrance is the prayer o all the saints and the aroma puts into utter forgetfulness the cassia and the spikenard and the frankincense and the worldrenowned spleen which Queen
