Text of the Iicsson, Acts xvi, 82-34—Memory Verses, 2.8-31—Golden Text, Acts xvl, 31—Commentary by the Rev. D. M. Stearns. 22. "And the multitude rose up together against them, and the magistrates rent off their clothcs and commanded to beat them." So much for their interfering •with the god of this world, tjjo prince of the power of the air, for, when the devil's property is touched, he soon begins to roar. Our Lord has taught us that true fellowship with Jfim will surely bring the same treatment that Ho received (John xv, 18- 20). The world, the flesh and the devil are all decidedly against God, and if we arc for God we must be against them at all costs. • 23. "And when they had laid many stripes upon them they cast them into prison, charging the jailer to keep them safely.'' With no gentle hand had they taken off their clothcs, and there would be no love nor gentleness in this scourging. It meant many and heavy stripes upon their bare backs It meant real pain and much of it, besides the humiliation of being treated as criminals when they were perfectly innocent. Paul, afterward speaking of it, says, "Wo were shamefully treated at Philippi" (I Thess. ii, 2). 24. '' Who, having received such a charge, thrust them into the inner prison and made their feet fast in tho stocks." Neither is there any tenderness in this man's handling of them. It is injustice and cruelty throughout, tho devil and his followers let loose upon tho children of God, strange mystery of iniquity which has been causing the people of God to suffer ever since Fin entered this world, and the end is not yet. If any one can tell why God permitted the devil to tempt Eve, wo will gladly listen. If not, we will still believe that God is love, trust Him for graco to endure meekly all that comes and wait for tho hereafter, when we shall know. 25. "And at midnight Paul and Silas prayed and sang praises unto God, and tho prisoners heard them.'' Here, surely, is the victory of faith and obedience to the word, "Rejoice and be exceeding glad, for great is your reward in heaven" (Math, v, 12). The same God who could prevent tho fire from burning Daniel's friends could sooth the bleeding backs of Paul and Silas and fill them and their dungeon with His glory. They did not praise because of circumstances, but in spite of circumstances. Consider that mighty "yet" of Hab. iii, 17, 18. 26. "And suddenly there was a great earthquake, so that the foundations of the prison ^vere shaken, and immediately all the. doors were opened, and every one's bonds were loosed." One has said that, although they had not influence enough nor earthly friends enough to keep them out of prison, there was power enough on their side to shake the whole earth, if necessary. 27. " And the keeper of the prison, awaking out of his sleep and seeing the prison doors open, he drew out his sword and would have killed himself, supposing that the prisoners had been fled.1' It was some- ' * ' * ' ' • tiftTft-Pllflri ltS3®ronds Or"balti and bars. It was natural for him to suppose that open doors meant escaped prisoners, and if this were so it meant death to him, which he purposed accomplishing by his own hand rather than that of others. 28. "But Paul cried with a loud voice, saying, Do thyself no harm, for we are all here." Here was good for «vil surely. The jailer had not thought probably of easing their sufferings in the least degree, but Paul would have no harm come to the jailer if he could prevent it. This is like Him who prayed, "Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do.'' Have we this spirit of forgiveness and love? 29. "Then he called for a light and sprang in and came trembling and fell down before Paul and Silas.'' How God does turn the tables! See the man in authority bowing before tho apparently*helpless prisoners. He now saw in them representatives of tho God who could do suoh wonders as shake the earth and open prison doors. Was is not worth while to suffer as they did thus to afford an opportunity for God to show Himself through them and on their behalf? Let us accept all events as opportunities for God to show Himself in and through us. 80. "And brought them out and said, Sirs, what must I do to be saved?" He does not seem to have considered whether this treatment of prisoners was right or wrong in the eyes of the law. Ho only seems to know that he is a sinful man having special dealings with a great God whom he is not prepared to meet, and that he had better consider the matter at all costs, and that very quickly. 81. "And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and thou shalt be sav6d, and thy house." What a simple message and how definite. He is not told to stop doing wrong and try to do better; to follow Christ and do somewhat as He did; to give up his occupation and go preaching with the apostles. He is not even told to pray or read the Scriptures, but just to do the one only thing that a helpless sinner can do, and that is to receive as a gift the Lord Jesus Christ (John i, 12; Rom. iii, 24; vi, 23; iv, 5; Titus iii, 5). 32. "And they spake unto him the word of the Lord and to all that were in his house." They were the messengers of the Lord of Hosts, and always ready to deliver their message, or rather His message. They would speak o£ Him who was foreordained before the foundation of the world, but had been recently manifested in the flesh as the Son of God and only Saviour of sinners. 88. "And he took them the same hour of tho night and washed their stripes, and was baptized, he and all his straightway." Halleluiah, what a Saviour 1 He saves instantly all who receive Him. He saves them fully and freely by His own precious blood without any works of theirs, and then begins at once to work in them the good works which He has before prepared (Eph. ii, 8, 10). We do not know that the jailer or any of his household ever heard these tidings before, and yet they believe as soon as they hear. May God by His Spirit awaken His people to give all on earth the privilege of hearing of Him who still receiveth sinners. 84. "And when he had brought them into his hctese he set meat before them, and rejoiced, believing God with all his house." What a happy flome, what a glorious change, and in so short a time 1 A little while before they were a household out of Christ, and therefore unsaved; but now a household in Christ, and therefore saved. If the jailer had killed himself and died in his Bins, he would have gone out into eternal torment, but now he has eternal life. Why are not all believers joyful and ever ready to pass on the good news of such a Saviour and such a aalva-tionf MS* The big, white steamboat baoks away from the wharf, swings about and goes slowly down the river sounding her whistle at intervals, for the fog is coming in rapidly. The few loafers on the pier eye curiously the tall, elegant woman who has come ashore. She, casting a half scornful glance about, approaches old Jed Rawson and puts this query: "Can I hire any one to take me ncross tho river?" "I reckon not," declares old Jed, taking out his pipe to stare at her witlj astonishment. "The steamer goes into port jest below here ter wait fer the fog ter lift. Tbar's no gittin across the river ternight, marm." "Can you manage a boat, my good man?" All the loafers smile at this. Old Jed breaks into a mellow laugh which sends a perfect network of wrinkles .over his brown face. "Why, leddy," he says, "there ain't nary a boy of 10 or up'ard alongshore as don't know how to handle a boat." The lady laughs too. She is very charming, even old Jed realizes that. She takes a gold piece from her dainty purse and says: "If you will take me and my trunk across the river, this shall be yours." The trunk is a huge affair, and Jed looks at it with one eye closed and shakes his head. "If it warn't fer the fog, marm, euy one on us 'ud take yer acrost fer nothing. But we couldn't see the boat's length tonight." The lady utters a sharp exclamation, anger and disappointment clouding her features. A brown faced lad steps from the corner of the little red baggage house where he has been standing. "If you dare to go, madam, I will take you," he says. : She gives him a radiant smile, at • ---- - • •• BOCKUBN'B ARNICA SALVB.—The best Salve in the world for cots, bruises, sores, ulcers, salt Theum, fever sores, tetter, cLappedhands, chilblains, corns, and all skin eruptions, and positively cures piles or no pay required. - It is guaranteed to give perfect satisfaction, or money re-fandtd Price, 25 centa per •tie at X. 91.

Jed and "one or two of the other nien remonstrate with him to no purpose. A small brown wherry is brought up to the flight of weather beaten steps leading down from one side of the wharf. The big trunk is lowered into it, and the lady handed down by Andrew Russell, who is thrilled by the touch of her cool, satiny finggars. He pulls off into the log bank while the loungers on the wharf make their comments. "Mighty fine looking craft that." "Carries too muoh sail." " What can she want over the river?" "P'rhaps she's bound for Barring-ton's." ' 'P'rhaps. She looks like his kind." It is late in the evening when Andrew Russell returns. Old Jed meets him hurriyng up the village street. "Well, Andrew, you got aorost all right?" 1 'Yes, I had a compass." < "Where'd she go?" "I can't tell yon," is the ourt reply, as the boy passes on. All subsequent inquiries elicit no further information than that Andrew landed her at the road which leads up by Barrington's, and that she expected some sort of conveyance to come for her there. Barrington is reported to be immensely wealthy. Ho never mingles with the people there, and he lives in a lordly fashion. He brings his own company from distant parts, and there are stories of gay and wild doings at the great house which fill the unsophisticated natives with amazement. He comes and goes as he likes and is altogether very mysterious. Andrew Russell has • sweetheart on that side of the river—pretty Jen Hardy, the fisherman's daughter. It is only natural that frequently he should row across in his wherry. But Jen Hardy does not see him every time he goes during the next fortnight. He tramps through a strip of woodland across lots until he reaches a sheltered vale this side of Barrington's. Here he meets the mysterious lady again and again. Andrew is 20—tall, strong and manly looking. Cars Ferris, as she calls herself, uses all her blandishments to complete his inthrallment She tells him a pretty story—how that her -uncle is determined to make a nun of her; that, Barrington being her cousin and friend she has come to him for protection, until she can get out of the country. She wants to go to Europe, for as soon as her uncle discovered her hiding place he will follow her. She is apparently very confiding with Andrew, who is too innocent to see the flaws in her story. "Would he think she was 25?" she asked coquettishly. : ||| Andrew returns a decided negative, never once dreaming that she is 10 years older. Jen Hardy is too proud to own that Andrew does not come to see her any more. Andrew has ho mother, and his father, who is not a veiy defer sighted man, sees no change in his boy, who is moody or exalted by fits. In two weeks' tinje'Andrew imagines' himself madly in love with this woman. He does not stop, to reason over the absurdity of so brilliant a oreature finding any attraction in an ignorant boy like himself.: ...V " : 0ne nighf he goeii home interested Jby the memory of a round, \vhite arm about bfs neck and the preasure Qf stoft, warm lips to his owp.

Barrington carries a Y&lise - in each 1 B^lphur Qf hand. They enter the wherry, and Andrew pulls swiftly and silently down the river. In about an hour they come to a small cove, where a commodious sailboat is tied to a ring in the rocky, shelving bank. They go aboard this, the little wherry is fastened astern, the sails are unfurled and on they go, dancing lightly out into the waters of the bay. At nightfall of the next day they come to a great city. Barrington and the lady go ashore. Some purchases are to be made here, and Barrington is to see a man who will buy the boat—this is what they have told Andrew. In the meantime he is to wait with the boat until their return, when they will all go aboard the great ocean steamship whose blaok funnels rise from a neighboring wharf. Andrew is not particularly pleased that Barrington is to accompany them, but nothing can dampen the joy of his belief that she loves him, and he. can never forget that her lips have touched his own. The poor boy is quite daft for the time and does not dream that he is being duped. The city clocks are striking 10, when a ragged street gamin crosses the wharf and hails Andrew. "Hi, there! Be your name Russell?" Andrew nods, and the boy hands him a note. ' 'A big swell up town sent this to yer." Andrew takes the note raid teats it open. He knows, of course, that the "big swell" is Barrington. The note reads as follows: When you read this, we shall be aboard an outward bound express. Goodby, my dear boy. Many thanks for your gallantry. Mr. Barrington makes you a present of the boat as a reward for your services. C. F. For a moment Andrew stares at the note in dumb amazement. His brain reels. Th& letters dance blood red before his eyel^lle staggers down into the little cabin and throws himself prostrate upon the floor. He breaks into great sobs which shake him from head to foot. To be fooled, played with, cast aside, when he had served their turn! Oh, the bitterness, the grief and rage in the boy's hot heart as he rolls to and fro upon the cabin floor! All night long he battles with this first great trouble. In the morning he rouses himself and goes up into the city to find a purchaser for his boat, for the sight of it is hateful to him. and he must have money to get home with. He sells it for $150, which is a pretty sum for a poor lad. At noon he has a sunstroke and is conveyed to the city hospital. When he comes out of his stupor, he finds himself under arrest for being the accomplice of an adventuress. He learns, to his horror, that Cars Ferris is Madge Delaphine. That she engaged herself as companion to a little, miserly old woman. That she and Barrington, who is her lover, planned the old woman^ the mtmey and jWell which Hoa^- ed about her. That Madge Delaphine accomplished the murder by means of a subtle poison, packed the body into a trunk and conveyed it to, Barrington's house, where it was buried in the cella*. The very trunk which Andrew ferried aoross the river! Andrew is takeg before a magistrate, where he tells hij story, omitting the love passages. But the magistrate is an astute old man and reads between the lines and pities the lad. "The woman and her lover have been arrested. I want you to identify her." He opens the door to an inner room and utters an exclamation of dismay. There, prostrate upon the floor, with her jeweled hairpin stuok through her heart, lies Madge Delaphine quite dead. "Is this the woman?" "Cars Ferris had dark hair," returns Andrew, who is white to his lips. The magistrate lifts a- wig of dark hair from a table near by. " A very simple disguise,'' he says and motions Andrew back to the outer room, where, after a few more questions and some fatherly advice, he dismisses him. The misery of Andrew's journey home is boundless. When he reaches the familiar spot, he is taken ill and for weeks is delirious with brain fever. Jen Hardy is his patient and faithful nurse. To Andrew it seems as if the memory of his folly must torture him forever, but as the months go by the shame and agony die ftway little by little. Jen, faithful soul, believes in him and loves him. He is young and the world is fair and life is pleasant after all. So, gradually he returns to his old allegiance, and it all ends as it should —with a wedding.—Dublin World. MAKING GOLD. Follow the Indian Alchemiits' Methods and. Presto? You Are Rich* For a long time in India the appar-snt transmutation of tin, ano, copper and mercury ipjbo preoious metals has been praoticed. We have seen there with our own eyes a metal like gold issuing from the crucible of the Indian alchemists—aL metal that could not be told from real gold by means of the touchstone. We may say, however, that in old India, as well as in young America, they have not yet succeeded in giving to the metal thus obtained the chemical properties of gold. On this point they are not more advanced in the one country than in the other, and the problem seems to us not to be near solution. The metal obtained can, in fact, be decomposed' into its constituent elements. Nevertheless, it may be interesting to present to public notice the Indian alchemists and to describe their methods. Around these personages many legends have sprung up. The people assert that they never come into a oity except by divihe inspiration in order to.«ure illness and to enrioh certain persons. There ' is a belief among the Hindoos, very widespread, bnt purely fabulous, that tfcey disappear at certain hours to rejoin the cittars—divine naturalists of the early ages of India, who, according to Hindoo tradition, meefr with their divinity, Hari Ishari, on the summits of thejH^alii^lg!^ orets of nature.? .

Notes. 1 * *Qir<31ijbig v th© Globe with Submarine Cables" is the subject of a popular scientific article by George Ethelbert Walsh in the July number of the NEW ENGLAND MAGAZINE. It shows in what a sure and rapid way the old prophecy of Puck is finding its fulfillment. There are few important quarters of the globe to which the cable does not carry now our telegraphic mebsages. The methods of laying the cable, of keeping them in repair and of finding breaks when they occur are by thousands of us little understood. The whole enterprise is stupendous, and has seldom been better described than by Mr. Walsh in this article, which is supplemented by a score of valuable plans and pictures. The great international questions of the hour, and American questions of a political or economic character, are discussed in the editorial department of the AMERICAN MONTHLY REVIEW OF REVIEWS for July. ' The project of Hawaiian annexation claims precedence in the review of current topics, entitled "The Progress of the World." The editor also comments on the present status of the Cuba question, on the situation in Spanish politics, and dn our trade relations with the South American republics. This department deals, too, with the problems resulting from the Turco-Grecian war and other grave complications in the Orient. In domestic matters, the proposed currency commission and the labor conditions of the country receive special attention. The August number of TOILETTES, published a few days after the celebration of the great c&amcnd jubilee of England's queen, giv&i the latest portrait of her majesty,, two large steel engravings, illustrating her marriage and the christening of the Prince of Wales; a page of autographs of well-known members of royalty, besides twenty-eight pages of new and practical fashions for young and old; stylish costumes for wheelwomen, pretty shirt-waists, silk blouse waists, seaside and mountain dresses,new sleeves, new trimming, new millinery, and well written articles on subjects that'must interest if not benefit every woman.
