Sunday Sermon

TEXT: "Great is Diana of the Ephesians."
-Actlsxix., 34.
We have landed this morning at Smyrna,
a city of Asiatic Turkey. One of the seven
churches of Asia once stood here. You read
in Revelation, "To the church in Smyrna
write." It is a city that has often been
shaken by earthquake, sweat by conflagra-
tion, blasted i y plagues and butchered by
war, and here Bishou Polycarp stood in a
crowded amphitheater and when he was
asked to give up the advocacy of the Chris-
tian religion and save himself from martyr-
dom, the proconsul saying, "Swear and. I
release thee; reproach Christ," replied,
"Eighty and six years have I served eim,
and He never did me wrong; how then can I
revile my King arid Saviour I"
ihen- he was brought to the fires into
which hewas about to be thrust, and the of-
ficials were about to fasten him to the stake
he said-. "Let me remain as I am, for He
who giveth me strength to sustain the fire
will enable me also without your securing
me with nails to remain unmoved in the
fire." History says the fires refused to con-
sume him, and under the wind the flames
bent outward so that they did not touch his
person, and therefore he was slain by swords
and spears. One cypress bending over his
grave is the only monument to Bishop Poly-
But were on the way to the city of Ephe-
sus, about fifty miles from Smyrna, We
are advised not to go to Ephesus. The
bandits in that region have had an ugly
practice of cutting off the ears of travelers
and sending these specimens of ears down to
Smyrna, dem-nding a ransom. The ban-
dits suggest to the friends of the persons
from whom the ears have been subtracted
that if they would like to have the rest of
the body they will please send an appropriate
sum of money. If the money is not sent the
mutilated prisoners will be assassinated.
One traveler was carried off to the robber's
den, and $7500 was paid for his rescue. The
bandits were caught and beheaded, and
pictures of these ghastly heads are on sale in
the shops of Smyrna for any person who
may desire to have something to look at on
their way to Ephesus.
There have been cases where ten and
twenty and thirty and forty thousand dollars.
have been demanded by these brigands, We
did'not feel like putting our friends to such
expense, and it was suggested that we had
better omit Ephesus. But that would have
been a disappointment from which we would
never recover. We must see Ephesus-
associated with the most wonderful apostolic
scenes, We hire a special railway train, and
in about an hour and a half we arrive at the
city of Ephesus, which was called "The Great
Metropolis of Asia," and "One of the Eyes of
Asia," and "The Empress of Ionia," the capi-
tal of all learning and magnificence. Here,
as I said, was one of the seven churches of
Asia, and first of all we visit the ruins of that
church where once an ecumenical council of
two thousand ministers of religion was held.
Mark the fulfillment of the prophecy Of
the seven churches of Asia four were com-
mended in the Book of Revelation and three
were doomed. The cities having the four
commended churches still stand; .the cities
having the three doomed churches are wiped
out. It occurred just as the Bible said it
would occur, Drive on and you come to the
theatre, which Was 660 feet from wall to walk
capable of hoRdng-. -b O spectators. Hera
and there the walls arise almost unbroken,
but for the most part the building is down.
As I took my place at the centre of this
theatre and looked around at its broken lay-
ers of stone, gallery upon gallery, gallery
upon gallery, and piled up. into the bleat
skies of that winter day, and thought that
every hand that swung a. trowel on those
walls, and every loot that trod those stairs,
and every eye that gazed on that amphi-
theatre, and every voice that greeted the
combatants in that arena had gone out of
hearing and sight for ages on ages, I felt a
thrill of interest that almost penetrated me
amid the ruins,
Standing there we could niot forget that
in that building once assembled a riotous;
throng for Paul's condemnation, because
what he preached collided with the idolatry
of their national goddess. Paul tried to get
into that theatre and,-address-~the excited
multitude, but his friends held him back, lest
he be torn to pieces by the mob, and the re-
corder of the city had to read the riot act
among the people who had shrieked for two
mortal hours till their throats were sore and
they were black in the face, "Great is Diana
of the Ephesians."
Now we step into the Stadium. Enough
of its walls and appointments are left to
show what a stupendous place it must have
been when used for foot-races and for fights
with wiid beasts. It was a building 680 feet
long by 200 feet wide. Paul refers to what
transpired there in the way of spectacle
when he says, "We have been made a spec-
tacle." "Yes," Paul says, "I have fought
with beasts at Ephesus," an expression
usually taken as figurative, but I suppose it
was literally true, for one of the amuse-
ments in that Sta' i um was to put a disliked
man in the arena with a.hungry lion or tiger
or panther, and let the fight go until either
the man or the beast or both were slain. e
It must have been great fun for these
haters of Christianity to hear that on the
morrow in the Stadium in Ephesus the mis-
sion-ry Paul would, in the presence of the
crowded galleries, fight a hungry lion. The
people were early there to get the best seats,
and a more alert and enthusiastic crowd
never assembled. They took their dinner
with them. And was there ever a more un-
equal combat proposed? Paul, according to
tradition, small, crooked backed and weak
eyed, but the grandest man in sixty cen-
turies, is led to thecenter as the people shout:
"There he comes, the preacher who has
nearly ruined our religion. The lion will
make but a brief mouthful of him."
It is plain that all the sympathies of that
crowd are with the lion. In one of the
underground rooms I hear the growl of the
wild beasts. They have been kept for several
days without food or water in order that they
may be especially ravenous and bloodthirsty.
What chance is there for Paul? But you
cannot tell by a man's size or looks how stout
a blow he can strike or how keen a blade he
can thrust. Witness, heaven and earth and
hell, this struggle of Paul with 'a wild beast.
The coolest man in the Stadium is Paul.
What has he to fear? He has defied all the
powers, earthly and infernal, and if his body
tumble under the foot and tooth of the wild
beast, his soul will only the sooner find dis-
enthrallmneent. But it is his duty, as far as
possible, to preserve his life.
Now, I hear the bolt of the wild beast's
door shoved back, and the whole audience
rise to their feet as the fierce brute springs
for the area andt toward its small occupant.
I thiuk the first plunge that was made by
the wild beast at the apostle was made.on the
point of a sharp blade, and the snarling
monster, with a howl of pain and reeking
with gore, turns back. But now the little
missionary has his turn of making attack,
and with a few well directed thrusts the
monster lies died in the dust of the arena,
and the apostle puts his right foot on'the
ion and shakes him. and then puts his left
'ooton him'and shakes him-a scene which

Paul afterward uses for an illustration when
he wants to show howi Christ will triumph
over death-"He must reign till He hath
ut all enemies under His feet"-yes, under
is feet.
Paul toll the literal truth whln' he said:
"I have fought with beasts at Ephe3us," aud
as the plural is u-el I think he had more
than one such fight, or several beasts were
let lose upon him at one time. As we stood
that day in the middle of the Stadiunm and
Jooked around at the great structure, t=e

Biut we pass out of the Stadium, for were
in haste for other places of interest in Ephe-

one of our party was mission. No man is

almost strange that this mountain of archi-
tectural snow outside did not nmlt with the
fires of color within.
The temple was surrounded with groves,
in which roamed for the temptation of
hunters, stags and hares and wild boars, and
all styles of game, whether winged or four-
footed. There was a cave with statue so
intensely brilliant that it extinguished the
eye of those who looke Iupon it, unless, at
the command of the priest, te hand of the
spectator somewhat shadedI the eye.

and know how to take sure aim and not miss
fire. Our companion, Dr. Louis Klopsch,
now the publisher of the Christian Herald,
had gone out on some explorations of his
own, and through the gate where Paul had
walked again and again, yet where no man
unaccompanied should adventure now, But
after some time had passed and every min-
ute seemed as long as an hour, and we had
time to imagine everything horrible in the
way of robbery and assassination, the lost
traveler appeared, to receive from our entire
party a volley ot expostulation for, the
arousal of so many anxieties.
In the midst of this city of Ephesus once
floated an artificial lake, brilliant with
painted boats, and through the river Cayster
it was connected with the sea, and ships from
all parts of the known earth floated in and
out. carrying on a commerce which made
Ephesus the envy of the world. Great was
Ephesus Its gymnasia, its hippodrome, its
odeon, its athenaeum, its foi'um, its aque-
ducts (whose skeletons are still drawn along
the city), its towers, its Castle of Hadrian,
its quarries,, which were the granite cradle
of cities; its temples, built to Apollo, to Min-
erva, to Neptune, to Mercury, to Bacchus,
to Harcules, to Caesar, to-Fortune; to Jupit-
Ser Olymus. What history and poetry and
chisel and canvas have not presented his
come up at the call of archaeologists' powder
blast and crowbar.
But I have now to unveil the chief wonder
of this chiefest of cities. In 1863, under the
patronage of the English Government,
Mr. Wood, the explorer, began at Ephesus
to feel along under the ground at great
depths for roads, for walls, for towers, and
here it is-that for which Eohesus was more
celebrated than all eise besides-the temple
of the goddess Diana, called the sixth wonder
of the world, and in 1889 we stood amid the
ruins of that temple, measuring its pillars,
transfixed by its sculpture and confounded
at what was the greatest temple of idolatry
in al l time.*
As I sat on a piece.of one of its fallen col-
umns I said, "What earthquake rocked it
down, or what hurricane pushed it to the
earth, or under what strong wine of centur-
ies did the giant stagger and fall?" There
have been seven temples of Diana, the ruins
of each contributing something for the
splendor of its architectural successors.
Two hundred and twenty years was this last
temple in construction. Twice as long as
the United States have stood was that tem-
ple in building. It was nearly twice as large
as St. Paul's Cathedral, London. Lest it
should be disturbed by earthquakes, which
have always been fond of malin those re-
gions their playground, the temple was built
on a marsh, which was made firm by layers
of charcoal, covered by fleeces of wool. The
stone came from the quarry near by.
After it was decreed to build the temple it
was thought it would be necessary to bring
the building stone from other lands, but one
day a shepherd by the name of Pixodorus,
while watching his flocks, saw two rams
fighting, and as they missed the interlocking
of their horns and one fell his horn knocked
a splinter from the rock and showed by that
splinter the lustrous whiteness of the rock.
The shepherd ran to the city with a piece of
that stone,s which revealed a quarry from
which place the temple was built, and every
month in all ages since the Mayor of
Ephesus goes to that quarry to offer sacri-
fices to the memory of that shepherd who
discovered this source ot splendor and
wealth of the cities of Asia Minnor.
in removing the great stones from the
quarry to their destined places in the temple,
it was necessary, in order to keep the wheels,
which were twelve feet in diameter, fro:n
sinking deep into the earth under the un-
paralleled heft, that a frama of timbers b3
arranged over which the wheels rolled. To
put the immense block of marble in its paca

In addition to those pillars that I climbed
over while amid the ruins of Diana's temple,
I saw afterward eight of tiosa pillars" at
Constantinople, to which city they had been
removed, an l are now a part of tee Mosque
of St. Sophia. Those eight columns are all
green jasper, but some of thoso which s-too-e
in Diana's temple at Ephesus' were fairly
drenched with brilliant colors. Costly oi'-
als stood up in various parts of the tepnle,
where they could catcli the fullest flush oi
the sun. A flight of stairs was carved out
of one grapevine. Doors of cypress wo'o,
which had been kept in glue for years ault
bordered with bronz-s in has relief, swung
against pillars of brass and resounded wita
echo upon ch upon echo, caught up and sent oil and
hurled back through the corridors.
In that building stood an imace of Diana,
the goddess. The impression was abroad us
the Bible records, that that image had
dropped plumb out of heaven into that
temple, and the sculptors who really made
the image were put to death sothat that they
could not testify of its human manufacture
and so deny its celestial origin. It was
thought by intelligent people that the ma-
terial from which this idol was formed might
have dropped out of heaven as au aerolite.
We have seen in the British museum, anud in
universities of oar own west, blocks of stone
hurled off from other worlds. These aero-
lites were seen to fall, and witnesses have
gone to the lauding places, and scientists have
pronounced them to be the product of other
But the mater ial out or which the image
of Diana was fashioned contradicts that

horse that when Alexander's horse was let
up to it he began to neigh, as one horse is ac-
castomed to greet another. One painting in
that temple cost $193,750. The treasures of
all nations and the spoils of kingdoms were .
kept here for safe deposit. Criminals from
all lands fled to the shelter of this temple,
and the law could not touch them. It seemed '

idolatry i the Nineteenth century as in the
Fir-t, an.l in America as in Asia.

One whole month of each year, the month
of May, was devoted to her worship. Prc-
cessions in garbs of purple and violet and
scarlet moved through it, and there were
torches and anthems, and choirs in white,
and timbrels and triangles in music, sacri-
fices and dances, Nations voted large
amounts to meet the expense of the worship.
Fisheries of vast resources were devoted to
the support of this resplendence, Horace
and Vir.zil anl Homer went into rhapsodies
while describing this worship.
All artists, all archaselog;sts, all centuries,
agreed in saving, 'Great is Diana of the
Ephesians." 'Paul, in the presence of this
Temple of Diana, incorporates it in his fig-
ures of speech while speaking of the spiritual
temple, "Now, if any .nan build upon this
foundation, gold, silver, precious stones.
etc.," and no doubt with reference to one o
the previous temples which had been set on
fire by Herostratus just for tho lame of de-
strovina it. Paul says. "if any man's work
shall be burned, he shall suffer losq, etc.,"
and all up and down Paul's writings yoi
realize that he had nof- only seen, but had
been mightiyimprpssej with what he had
seen of the Tem"le '.Diana.
In this city the nAher of Jesus was said
to have been buried. Here dwelt Aquilla
and Priscilla of Bible mention, who were
professors in an extemporized theological
seminary, and they taught the eloquent
Apollo a how to be eloquent for Christ,
Here John preached, and trom -here because
of his fidelity tie was exiled to Patmos. Here
Paul warred against the magical arts for
which Ep.te-us was famous. The sorcerers
of this city vreten'ei that they could care
diseases, and perform almost any miracle,
by pronouncing these senseless words, Aski

But, all the glory of Ephesus I have de-
scribed has pone now. At some seasons of
the year awful malarias sweep over the
place and put upon mattress or in graves
a large portion of the population. In the
approximate marshes scorpions, centipedes
and all forms of reptilian life crawl and
hiss and sting, while hyenas and jackals at
night slink in and out of the ruins of build-
ings which once startled the nations with
their almost supernatural grandeur.
But here is a lesson which has never yet
been drawn out. Do you not see in t at
temple of Diana an expression of waat the
world needs. It wants a Got wh can pro-
vide foo3. Diana was a huntress. In
pictures on many of the coins ,he held a sta
by the horn with one land and a bundle of
arrows in the other. Oh, this is a hungry
world I Diana could not give one pound of
meat or one mouthful of fool to the
millions of her worshipers. She was a dead
divinity, an imaginary god, and so in
idolatrous lands the vast majority of people
never have enough to eat. It is only in the
countries where the God of heaven and earth
is worshiped that the vast majority have
enough to eat. Let Diana have her arrows
and her hounds. Our God has the sunshine
and the showers and the harvests, and in
proportion as He is worshiped does plenty
So also in the Temple of Diana the world
expressed its need of a refuge. To it from
all parts.of the land came debtors who could
not pay their debts and the offenders of the
law that they miirht scanae in-tr-
ceration. But she sheltered them only a
little while, and while she kept them from,
arrest she could not change their hearts, and
the guilty remained guilty. But, our God
in Jesus Christ is a refuge into which we
may fly from all our sius and all our pur-
suers, and not only be safe for time, but safe
for eternity, and the guilt is pardoned and
the nature is ,transformed. What Diana
could not do for her worshipers, our Christ
accomplishes for.,u3. ..... .,-;-.....

Let me hide myself In thee. :
Then, in that temple were deposited
treasures from all the earth for safekeeping.
Chrysostom says it was the treasure house
of nations; they brought gold and silver and
precious stones and coronets from across the
sea, and put them under them der the care of Diana of
the Enhesians. But again and again were
those treasures ransacked, captured orIde.
stroyed. Nero robbed them e the Scythians
scattered them, 'the Goths burned them.
Diana failed those who trusted her with
treasures. but our God, to whom we may in-
trust all our treasures Aor this world and the
next, and fail any one who puts confidence
in Him Be never will. After the last jasper
column has fallen, and the last temple on
earth has gone into ruins, and the world
itself has suffered demolition, the Lord-will
keep for us our best treasuri:es.
But notice what killed Ephesus and what
has killed most of the cities that lie'-buried in
the cemetery of nations.. Luxury l The
costly baths, which had been the means of
health to the city became its ruin. Instead
of the cold baths that had been the invigora-
tion of the people, .theahot, baths, which. are
only intended for the infirm ore the invalid,
wire substituted. In these hot baths many
lay most of the time. Authors wrote books
while in these baths. Business was neleted .
and a hot bath taken four or five times a
day. When the keeper of the baths was rep-
rimanded for not having them warm enough
one of the rulers said, "You blame him for
making the bath warm enough; I blame you
because you have it warm at all."
But that warn bath which enervated
Ephesus, and which is always enervating ex-
cept when followed by cold baths (no refer-
ence, of course, to delicate constitutions),
was only a type of what went on in 'all- de-
partmeotse of phesian life, and in luxurious
indulgeiice Ephesus fell, and the last triangle
of music was tinkled in Diana's temple, and
the last wrestler disappeared from her gym-

"The duties of the farmer include very
much more than the cultivation of the
land and the production of crops. Upon
him more than upon any one else, de-
pends the character of public institutions
and the welfare of all classes of people.
With him mainly rests the responsibility
of good or bad government.
"That there has been a great awaken-
ing among farmers during the. past few
years in matters pertaining to their rights
and duties'everybody knows. The Far-
mers' Alliance is the result of the dissat-
isfaction produced by an unjust system
of distributing the benefits and turdens
of public institutions."
"Statesmen of all parties, while sub-
scribing to the fundamental doctrines of
our government, are found advocating
measures and policies subversive of them.
For a score of years they have been plant-
ing seeds throughout our industrial and
commercial system utterly at variance
with the doctrine of equal rights. To-
day we are cursed with privileged classes
existing by virtue of legal enactments to
as great a degree as many of the nations
of Europe. We have broadened the
foundation of the splendid temple our
our fathers began, but we have not raised
its walls; except with a single stone, in
100 years. The emancipation of the black
man is the only achievement in the interest
of humanity worth recording in this cen-
"Monopoly is the arch enemy of indus-
try, the political monster of modern times.
It has come to be a constant, ever pres-
ent menace to free government. It
rears its head in every field, it clutches
at the throat of every honest toiler. It
besets the public highways. It interests
every market. It is intrenched in court
and Congress alike. The horse leach's
daughter of holy writ was notmore rapa-
cious. As a political force, it domi-
nates both the great parties. Its ten-
dencies are toward arbitrary, despotic
government. The home of the monster
is in the modern contrivances we call cor-
"The forces of nature, the natural pro-
ducts of'the earth, the equal gifts of God
to all the children of men, are walled up
by the omnipresent corporation.The goods,
the rights, the benefits made, matters of
corporate ownership and distributed to
* lair participation.
''Public instrumentalities, the railroad,
the telegraph, the financial system drift"
enormous revenues into private coffers,'
while they exist under a normal condition
of public control. This condition is an
economic absurdity.
"No solution of the great problem of
equitable distribution can be found out-
side the public ownership of natural
forces and materials.
"Partisans have raised a. ghost and
named it paternal government, forgetting
that the people are, in theory and ought
to be in fact, the government, forgetting
that except for the paternal care of
government there would not be a corpo-
rati'on on the face of the earth. Yet par-
t sans build no adequate defense against
the combination that clutches- labor by
the throat, that glowers industry with
the eye polyphemus, sucking up her sub-
stance to the wall of bare subsistence.
"The $60,000,000,000 of wealth in our
country is the result of the genius and
industry of all the ages gone. It is a
splendid legacy to leave posterity. That
a small minority, who have contributed
nothing toward its accumulation, should
inherit the whole of it, to the exclusion
of the great majority, is not only a fla-
grant injustice upon the face of the mat-
ter, but it mai ks the fact that in human
affairs there are yet whole realms in the
matter of equitable distribution unex-
plored, matters of vast concern to those
who come after us.
"The Farmers' Alliance as an organi-
zation, is the natural result of the neglect
of political parties to consider economic
questions from the standpoint of merit
Iather,.than of party advantage. The
farmers have becoune weary with the
long-drawn quarrels over minutes and
barren,contests of mere place hunters.
"The animosities of a contest fought
to a finish many years ago ought to have
been buried long ago, and would have
been except for thepartisan who found
politic il capital in keeping alive the en-
mities and jealousies of the sections
against each other.
"The Alliance seeks to reunite the
people into one harmonious nation with
equal rights for all. It seeks to limilt the
power and curb the rapacity of corpora-
tions. It seeks to reform the industrial
system to the end that the products of
industry may be fairly distributed Its
.task will not be finishedtill these results
are achieved. It was not born in a night
nor will it perish in a day. It is a pro-
test against plutocratic tendencies, against
extravagant pubic expenditures, against
unequal taxation, against. the spoliation
of the working classes against the ex-
ploiter and speculator in the' poducts of
the field, the mine and the factory;
against the whole-class who make a mo-
nopqly .ad live by usury, against the pli-
vate ownership of public nstrumentali-
ties, against the whole policy of inflated
capital and bonded debts
"The Alliance demands a sufficient
volume of money to enable industry to
exchange her products on a cash basis, to
the oend that labor may escape the bur-.
den of interest that now eats up her sus-
tenance in maintaining the credit system.
"The .Alliance recognizes that the
government.monopolizes the creati. n of
money and insists tat this fact carries

the way ten to twenty-five dollars an
acre. Hold on to your timbered lands,
farmers. The near friture will prove
them to be a mine of wealth to you-you
may in less than five years sell the timber
at $2.50 a tree'and have the land left.
*' *
It is stated that the Greenville, S. C.,
County Alliance has decided to store a
large portion of their cotton crop. They
have made arrangements with local banks
to advance 80 per cent. of the present
value at one per cent. per month. The
storage for the first 15 days will be free.
The tot .1 cost of storage and insurance
per month will not exceed 25 cents per
This is rather a costly way to hold cot-
ton when compared with the Sub-treas-
ury, but with a short crop and April fu-
tures already higher than for the present
month, it doubtless will be safe if a
large number of farmers will make simi-
lir arrangements. But ivithout unity of
action it will avail but little. However,
it should be tried. If we make but little
nothing will be lost. It is certainly sui-
cidal so sell all this crop at the present
prices. Let ever' cotton county go to
work and see if anything can be done at

change their products, or why they should
be burdened with an interest-eating bond
as a foundation for a circulating medium,
when they could furnish the security for
the medium of exchange themselves at
one-fourth the expense.
"The past six months has lifted the
fog sufficiently that all may now see
where the centre of the great industrial
battle is to be. Politicians may beat the
bush yet a little longer over an insignifi-
cant difference in the adjustment of the
tariff, but the real contest cannot be long
delayed. We must fix the status of the
ruling force in America.
"Shall it be money or manhood? That
is the question. We must settle the
question whether our medium of ex-
change shall be a great national labor-
saving machine, as great as the nation's
industries, as strong as the nation's arms,
as sound as the nation's heart, or wheth-
er it shall continue to be a tool of mo-
nopoly, nominally under public control
but really controlling the people, and ex-
acting tribute from industry by the rob-
ber's rule of 'what the traffic will bear.' "

cultivate a spirit of fraternity with all
kindred organizations. Let vus put the
Alliance above our fealty to any political

emancipation of industry from the domi-

$2.50' A TREE,
How would you like to sell your tim-
ber at that price, brother farmer?
How many of you are selling wood de-
livered at the railroad for $1.50 a cord?
How many are selling crossties at 20
cents apiece and haul them several miles,
Well, farmers, $2.50 a tree was. paid a
few days ago by a Northern lumber com-
pany for 200,000 soft wood trees, stand-
ing, in a Southern State a little north
of us.
You ask if farmers sold that batch of
trees? Well no, they had been sold by
the original owners some years ago for a
mere song; and the immense profit in this
last trade went to the speculators.
Farmers, the timber of the Northern
forests is nearly exhausted. The im-
mmense lumber mills operating must
move, and they must move South. They
have their agents all through the @outh I
buying up lands at a ridiculously low fig-
gure. A few years hence the land you

The Best Part of Central Africa-
A cablegram from St. Paul de Loanda,
via Belgium, says that Lieut. Lemarinel
has returned from his expedition to Ka-
tanga King Msiri has submitted to the
Congo State and recognized its sovereign-
ty. The Lieutenant established a station
in his country. Masiri is the most power-
ful ruler in Central Africa.- It was thought
he might assume a hostile attitude to-
ward the whites, but Lamarinel had no
difficulty in assuring his friendship,. His
people are great traders, and the copper
they take from their mines is exported as
far as the Atlantic and the Indian Oceans.
Great hopes are entertained for the fu-
ture of this country, which, every white
man who has yet visited it says, is adapt-
ed for white colonization owing to its
lofty altitude and salubrious climate.

The Liberian Emigration.

The emigation of colored people from
the United States to Africa, and in par-
ticular from New York to Liberia, goes
on so stea ily as to lend a special interest
to the views of Arthur Silva White, sec-
retary of the Royal Scottish Geographical
Society. Mr. White says the foreign
Powers colonizing and acquiring proper-
ty rights in the Dark Continent must
ag: ee on a uniform programme before the
interests of Africa can be developed along
Snatutral lines. This seems directly to
concern every emigrant from Africa.

mally favorable as to the splendid pros-

troubles throughout the world have,: of"
course, had their natural effect in restrict-

One of the popular paintings at the New

panel of Roses. A crowd was always before
it. One art critic exclaimed, "Such a bit of
nature should belong to all the people, it i
toobeautiful for one man to hide away."
The Youth's Comnpanion, of Boston, seized
the idea, and spent twenty thousand dollars
to reproduce the painting. The result has been
a triumph of artistic delicacy and color.

What would you think if some one that you
knew to be responsible would offer to give
you a well stocked general store for one year's
work? You would, no doubt, consider it big
ray and jump at the chance. Well, such
things have been done and are being done
richt a'ong. Messrs. B. F. Johnson& i'o., of
Richmiond, Va., number among their em-
ployes many men who earn the value of a first
ela-s store every year. W. F. Davis worked
for them awhile, then oi'ened a snug general
store at Hick's Wharf, Matthews County,Va.,
and wrote ihis firm as follows: "L can only
s ly that I give your bus nines credit for what
am. If I were to meet with any bad luck or
lose whitti have made, I am proud ,o say that
I could go to you for employment ind seon
make another store." 'Ihey can show hole
how io double and treble your ino,)'ne, if
you are in any business employing a capital
of less than $300:); and if you are not in any
business at all, they will enable you to be in
a short time, if y-u will tako their advice.
They want a g,,od honest min or woman in
every country in Ihe Union to manage a bust-
ness that will yield handsome returns. Write
them at once for information.

You can't believe
some dealers always. They want to
sell the medicine that pays them the
largest profit. What you want to
buy is the one that does you the
most good.
Which one is it?
Sometimes, it may be a matter
of doubt. But, in the case of
Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription,
there's no room for doubt. It's a
matter that can be proved.
With the facts before you, it's
an insult to your intelligence to
have something else offered as
"just as good."
And here's the proof: Among
all the medicines that claim to cure
woman's peculiar weaknesses, irreg-
ularities, and diseases, the Favor.
ite Prescription" is the only one
that's guaranteed.
If it doesn't do all that's claimed
for it, if it doesn't give satisfaction
in every case, you'll have your
money Ba'k".' :
There's strength and vigor for
every tired and feeble woman,
health and a new life for every
delicate and ailing woman- and if
there's no help there's no pay.

Here is an incident from the South
-Mississippi, written in April, 189o0,
just after the Grippe had visited that.
country. I am a farmer, one of
those who have to rise early and
work late. At the beginning of last
Winter I was on a trip to the City
of Vicksburg, Miss.,where I got well
drenched in a shower of rain. I
went home and was soon after seized
with a dry, hacking cough. This
grew worse every day, until I had
to seek relief. I consulted Dr. Dixon
who has since died, and he told me !
to get a bottle of Boschee's German
Syrup. Meantime my cough grew
wo:'.-:e and worse and then the Grippe
came along and I.caught that also
very severely. My condition then
compelled me to do something. I
got, two bottlesof German Syrup. I
began using them, and before taking
much of the second bottle, I was
entirely clear of the Cough that had
hung to me so long, the Grippe, and
all its bad effects. I felt tip-top and
1ave felt that way ever since."
