THE VACATION PSALM Sermon by the "Hiahway and Byway" Preacher. Copyright, ltfw, liy J. it. KUsun. ) Chicago, Sunday, July 24, 1904. Text: "Let the words'of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in Thy sight, O Lord, my Strength and my Redeemer." Psalm 19:14. . E have indicated the last verse of the n i n e t eenth Psalm as our text because it should voice the desire and prayer of every soul, but we wish to take the whole Psalm for our theme, and we are going to call it, "The Vacation Psalm." The vacation is the time for rest and meditation. The time when we love to get off into the heart of Nature and listen to the harmony of her mauifold voices, to drink in the thousand and one beauties of the vaulted heavens and the verdant earth, to feel the gentle influences stealing in upon our souls as fair Nature comes and cheerfully and faithfully ministers to our needs and, smiles with indulgent grace upon our whims and exactions. How patient she is as we take all she has ...

Judge Parker's canSecretary Morton, didacy has been so long brewing that New Yorkers have been made familiar with the different ways, of getting to the little hamlet on the Hudson where the judge has his farm. And the farm has not been denied him.

v.suj:ngion t.ettkh, From Our Regular Correspondent. Washington, Jul v 21. 1004. A talented and even brilliant member of congress lias exhibited himself on the streets of Washington during the last week in a state of conspicuous inebriety in other words, fig-Ming drunk. A neighbor of mine when he told me lifted up his hands and exclaimed "What a pity that congressional morals are now-a-days at such a low ebb drinking and furhtiusr!" Then he alluded to the two or three small quarrels between members that have taken place during: the last year. I; recalled other congresses and came to the conclusion that this is probably the soberest congress the country has ever seen. Fifty or sixty years ago inebriety was so common that it created little comment. When a member stag gered into the house and made a maudlin effort at oratory he was laughed at and led into the cloak room, but nobody thought it worth mentioning." When half the men in the land occasionally or frequently got drunk, a spor ...

This Is said to be 10 or 12 per cent, of the in vestment. In China drunkards, as well as total abstainers, are almost unknown, Gambling debts are pre-eminently debts of honor there, and are more willingly and . speedily paid than any others. To pay them a Chinaman will pawn all his property, and even sell his. children. In the Chinese reeling mills the men are paid a maximum of 24 cents a day and the women 15 and 18 cents, There Is no law in Japan regulatin; child labor, and children are employed at from 4 to 6 cents per day. irance it is seldom tnat a woman or a girl receives less than 30 cents per day m the reeling mills.

Gut faint sounds stir in the dry learea That strew the orchard floor, As if the garments of the day Were rustling as she steals away. Along the hedgerows, here and there, Shine red stems of the brier, And dusky homesteads windows hold A scarlet flash of fire; The bold wing of a crow astray Is strangely black against the gray. One bar of rusty red Is all The smothered sunset shows. Mo room there is for twilight's grace, So swift the darkness grows, But on faint harp-strings in the wood Some stray wind play...

THE FULLNESS OF SALVATION Sermon by the "HlKhway and Byway" Preacher. t Copyright, iwm, by 4. M. Edion. ) Chicago, Sunday, August 7, 1904. Text: "Receiving the end of your faith, even the salvation of your souls." 1 Peter I N SPEAKING of the fullness of salvation which G04 has provided for man, and ,th"e measure of that fullness which man appropriates t o himself, we And two very different propositions. Salvation in its largest conception is more than the escape of the soul from hell. Salvation includes all the riches which are in Christ Jesus. Salvation is a large word. It means infinitely more in the spiritual realm than it does in the natural. Here is a man in danger of physical death. In the nick of time he is rescued. It is a complete fact His salvation from death is not progressive. Because he was saved yesterday does not require that he be ' saved again to-day. But it is quite the contrary in the spiritual realm, for salvation of the sinner to-day means that to-morrow he may ...
