TALMAGOE'S SERMON. The Old story of the Prodigal son Furnishes New Lessons. It is the Hunu Man Needs Breed, the Penitent Stuner Needs Christ-Now is the Time to Resolve to Re turn to Our Father. Rev. T. DeWitt Talmage selected the following from the numerous dis courses delivered by him in England for perusal by his Amercan readers. It is based on the text: I will arise and go to my father .-Luke xv., I8. There is nothing like hunger to take the energy out of a man. A hungry man can toil neither with pen nor hand nor foot. There has been many an army defeated not so much for lack of ammunition as for lack of bread. It was that fact that took the fire out of this young man of the text. Storm and exposure will wear out any man's life in time, but hunger makes quick work. The most awful cry ever heard on earth is the cry for bread. A traveller tells us that in Asia Minor there are trees which bear fruit look ing very much like the long bean of our time. It it named the carab. Onoe in aw...

This will ap ply .s true in polt.ics as it does in the ordifrary intercouse of ever day life.

It was some years ago, Ia an old-fashlione store, That a parrot perched daily just over the door. There he squinted at strangers, who stared up aghast, And he chatted and swore at the urehins that passed. But his master was quite a remartable man. A retailer of goods on a vigorous plan: He'd a habit of swearing his prices were low, And of saying, to clinch his assertioe: "That's so." This sagacious old parrot for many a day Noted down every word that his master would say, Till the oft-uttered phrase he at last came to know. And his principal pastime was squawking: .'That's as." Once an elderly gentleman entered the store; lie was very much pleased with the bird at the door, And be said to the owner: "My friend, do you know That's a mighty fine bird?" Said the parrot: "That's so." The old gentleman stared, with a look of sau prise Like a person who scarcely can credit his eyes, And ...
