COKCI.rDKD FROM FIRST PAGE. Fugitive marriage is to be deplored because it almost always implies woman's descent from a higher social plane to a lower. If the man was of a higher plane, or the marriage on an equality, there would be no objections, and hence no inducement to clandestiny. In almost all cases it means tub lowering of womanhood. Observe this law : A man marrying a woman beneath him in society may raise her to any eminence that ho himself may reach, but if a woman marry a man beneath her in society she always goes down to his level. That is a law inexorable, and there are no exceptions. Is any woman so high up that she can afford to plot for her own debasement ? There is not a State in the American Union that has not for the last twenty years furnished an instance of the sudden departure of some intelligent woman from an affluent home to spend her life with some one who can make !§3 a day provided he keeps very busy. Well, many a man has lrved on $3 a day and been happy,...

Editob :—I purpose with your permission, to furnish you with several scenes from a drama which is in a course of preparation and which, I think, yill be acceptable to maDy of your readers. It is drawn from various sources, but will make one consistent whole, if my plan should ever be fully carried out. I send you to-day a scene that is supposed to have taken place in Wittenberg on All Saints' Day in 1517, on which day also the annual commemoration of the consecration of the ohurch was observed, ns is the custom to this day in many parts of Germany. Crowds of people come together on such ohurch holidays, but unfortunately not to worship but to participate in the frolic. Three interesting facts combined to attract an unusual number of persons to Wittenberg on this day; it was the .Festival of All Saints, the anniversary of the church consecration, but above al...

CONCLUDED FROM FIRST PAGE. I have seen the sorrovr of a godless mother on the death of a child she had neglected. It was not so much grief that she felt from the fact that the child was dead as the fact that she had neglected it. She said: "If I had only watched over and cared for the child I know God would not have taken it." The tears came not; it was a dry, biittering tempest—a scorching simoon of tho desert. When she wrung her hands it seemed as if she would twist her fingers from their sockets ; when she seized her hair, it seemed as if she had, in wild terror, grasped a coiling serpent with her right hand. No tears! Comrades of the little one came in and wept over the coffin; neighbors came in, and the moment they saw the still face of the child the shower broke. No tears for her. God gives tears as the summer rain to the parched soil; but in all the universe the driest and hottest, the most scorching and consuming thing is a mother's heart if she has neglected her child, when...

At such vision, " P c ' _ uiitted so to <10, the ostriches in the corrals would immediately be speeding over the windy plain, through a waste of tall wila sunflowers, at a gait that would astonish a Dr. Sketctoley has three dogs on his farm, but they are all kept behind the buildings out of sight of the ostriches. When a keeper approaches them to annoy tliem they emit n, hissing uoib© like a goose, and try to bite the intruder. They have no strength in their bills, however, and are harmless unless tliey get a chance to kick. Unlike the emu, which is exhibited often as an African ostrich, they have but one toe on each foot, 'lhis is a terrible weapon. The bird kiclcs forward. The force is shown by the exploit of one bird, which kicked a stout board on the side of its corral and broke it in two at 0110 blow. The toe i» pointed and will cut like a knife. The b...

CHURCH ' PAPER. ESTABLISHED 1873. HBNKBL & CO., Publishers. VOLUME XIV. For Oar Church Paper. The Church- BY KEV. J. 13. DAVIS, D. D. God has always had a church, —a distinct and peculiar people in the earth, whom, by manifold recognitions, he has distinguished from the rest of mankind. In the Patriarchal ages, Enoch, Noah, and Abraham with their families, were the objects of these special recognitions, to the exclusion of thousands descended alike with them from the parents of the whole human race. It is not our purpose, nor do we consider it any part of our business, to account for these special orderings. They are inscrutably concealed in the divine counsel, to be revealed only in his own time and his own way, who knoweth all things—and works all things according to the counsel of his own will. These favored ones, however, related to one another and to their race—however separated by time boundaries, by national alliances, and race distinctions,—are all one in Christ ...

HISTORY OF THE PENNY. Intercntius Fact* About the Humble Coin —Tlio Old Copper Cent. There Ik much more in a penny than appears at first sight, says a writer in an English exchange. Its manufacture, its history, its adventures might each form the subject of an article, or even a series of articles; so with its purchasing power, which, to a famishing person, might be a matter of life ami death, while, under happier circumstances, what such a humble coin may command is well illustrated by the paper which the reader now holds in his hand. Then there are the legends and emblems which are upon the two sides of a penny, and—well, really one is almost appalled at the idea of dealing with such a vast subject in a single article, which is all that can be devoted to it at present. The penny is of really respectable antiquity. "Humble coin" indeed! Why, if birth and long descent were things, apart from other circumstances, to make one feel proud, then might the penny Ihs tlio most haughty of c...

CHURCH PAPER. ESTABLISHED 1873. HENKEL & CO.. Publishers. VOLUME XIV. Tlie Seven Utterances Trom the Cross. BY JOEL SWARTZ, 1). D. The remarkable recurrence of the "sacred number of seven" in nature and revelation is paralleled and made specially impressive by the fact that we have just that number of utterances from the lips of the Saviour as he hang upon the cross. Of course, these utterances do not derive their significance from the fact that there were just seven of them, but much more from their own inherent weight and significance, heightened very much by the momentous circumstances of the tragic scene, of which they wore a part. Always impressive, thoy be come specially so at this season, when the eyes of all the Christian world are turned again to the cross and to the tomb of onr Lord. In this "Passion Week" how true it is that "Jesus Christ is evidently (openly) set forth crucified among us !'' Others will, perhaps, point your readers to Easter morning and the o...

Mr. E. B. Washburne heard Abraham Lincoln called "Old Abe" for the first time at Chicago in July, 1847. "He was then a young man only thirty-six years of age. One afternoon several ol' us sat on the sidewalk under the balcony in front of t lie Sherman House, and among the number the accomplished scholar and unrivalled orator Lisle Smith, who suddenly interrupted the conversation by exclaiming: 'There is Lincoln on the other side of the street. Just look at old Abe! And from that time we all called him 'Old Abe. 1 No one who saw him can forget Lis personal appearance at that time. Tall, angular, and awkward, ho had on a sliort-waisted, thin, swall#w-tail coat, a short vest of the name material, thin pantaloons scarcely coming down to his ankles, a straw hat, end a pair of brogans, with woollen socks."

Now these heathen gods are given many holidays, but this is oue of the greatest. It is nothing less than the marriage day of the great god Siva. The Hindus claim that lor live thousand years they have anuually celebrated this wedding with divine and imposing ceremonies. To try my boy I said, "well if tho gods are going to have a holiday, let them have it; but that does not make it necessary that you should have one too, does it t" "Oh I I ought to be there," he said.

"Because my people ...
