I stood beside the sea one day, The tide was low; With quiet flow It scarcely lapped the ocean's rim Whose waviug line, now clear, now dim, Revealed the shelving, sandy beach, Where oft the waves To watery graves In quick succession swiftly bore Each other as they climbed the shore. The little hollows in the sand Like silvery nests Where sunshine rests, Just for the time appeared to me As lasting as the shore to be; But later, when the tide had turned, I found no trace In any place Of all the basins, which had seemed So lasting as they gleamed Beneath the glowing summer sun. Why had they fled Like bright hopes dead ? Because the ocean in its sweep Had gathered all iu one great deep. Here in the pools upon the sand, I seein to find Within my mincl A type of churches, sects and creeds, Established for the great world's needs; Just for a while they will remain, Each with its plan For blessing man, Till God's great love, like ocean-tide, In one shall all divisions hide, Then, folded on our Father's breast, Like tired child That wept and smiled, At last, we all shall come to see One Church, in its divinity. THE FACE OF A DEMON. There were only sixty of us cavalry to guard a train of thirty wagons; the Indians could have borne us down by sheer weight of numbers had tliey possessed the nerve to charge en masse. At S o'clock in the afternoon 1 counted at least 400 of the hostiles in sight—every one mounted on bis war pony and armed with a good rifle, if not a Winchester. Sixty troopers and thirty teamsters to 400 redskins. Big odds in favor of the whooping, screaming, defiant riders, H.nd more so because out of the thirty teamsters not more than half would fire a shot in case of a grand charge. Western men, and not their first sight of Indians by a dozen times,, but teamsters are not the machine a soldier is. As the reds began to close in and become more defiant 1 noticed many white faces among the wagons, and 1 figured that many a man would cut loose his fleetest mule and seek to escape by flight if worst came to worst. We must give the Apaches a lesson in manners. We had been waiting until the train should reach a favorable location. The moment had come. On this ground the teamsters coald_take it" wilh" Een and that left fifty of us to act. The word was quietly passed down the line, each man prepared himself, and at a note from the bugle a wonderful change took place. Our captain wheeled with twenty men, and charged to the rear; our single lieutenant wheeled to the left with ten men; a sergeant charged straight ahead with ten more; I took nine others and wheeled to the right and rode straight at a body of eighty Indians bunched on a knoll just out of rifle shot. "Right wheel—steady, now; forward, trot, gallop—charge!" Ten to eighty! Eight to one! Odds enough to prove our mettle and make it exciting. Every trooper in every squadron was cheering as he rode. His carbine was strapped to his back and his saber was held aloft in his right hand. "Rush 'em, boys; drive right into em; make a hole in the bunch?" Our plan had been executed so swiftly that the reds were dumfounded. Only three or four shots were fired at us as we charged, and the whole band sat there gazing at us as we thundered up. We struck them with an awful crash-ten of us in single rank, and as our sabers began to flash the Indians thought only of getting out of reach. We had them flying in two minutes, and the order was, in case they took to flight, to keep together and run them for a couple of miles, using our carbines on their backs. I had a light horse, not much larger than an Indian pony. He struck and ^nocked over two ponies, and as I cut a \Hurrior down with my saber my horse pitched forward and flung me heavily to the ground. 1 was stunned, but remember that two or three horses stepped on me as the Indians drew out and took to flight. When 1 struggled to a sitting position it was to find myself almost helpless. My right shoulder was broken, my back severely injured, and my legs felt numb. 1 was in a hollow, from which I could not see the wagons, but I could hear the fighting going on in all directions. To the right of me was a dead warrior, to the left a second; farther to the left a dead pony; to the right a wounded one; directly in front of me and twenty feet away was a redskin, kicking and struggling. I had just got a rest on my left elbow when he sat up. The right side Of hisp head was all bloody from a saber cut which had shaved off an ear, but this would have been a trifle to him. He must have been dismounted by the shock, as I was, and had also been trodden on. His right arm hung limp and his back was broken. He fell back as he tried to sit up, and, rolling over half way, his eyes looked, squarely into mine. " *? " * t: Talk of the fury in the eyes of a* tiger brought to bay, of a lion crippled and waiting to strike a dying blow, of tht tires of hell burning in the eyes of a mastiff attacked with hydrophobia and impatient to destroy I. The face of that Indian was the face of a demon fresh from the confines of hades. The hate in his eyes made the blood chill. The desire for vengeance burned out like , a blaze on a hilltop at midnight. ' ;f-.a||p- I felt for my revolver with my left hand. It was in the holster of my saddle. My carbine was at my bapk, but 1 could not get at it, injured as i' was, and the slightest movement giving me excruciating pain. Was he armed? Ylesl 1 saw his left hand go down and seize the handle of his tomahawk, and as he raised it be tried -to utter a shout of venge|tijC!f-yHg^copl^ not sit up, and ^ but shnfcti&s his teeth tightly together "to force back the pain he waved the towahawk three or four times to get an impetus, and then flung it at me. It passed over me and sunk into the earth. Had he any other weapon? He lay back, panting with pain and exhaustion after his throw, and again his eyes glared into mine, while the blood oozed from his wound and ran clown his throat and neck. Hate! Vengeance! Fury I Hope! Despair! I read each' feeling as it passed through his heart—read it from the eyes which burned and glinted and blazed until I grew faint at their malignity. Then he moved his arm again and brought up a knife—a long, thin knife, which the lightest blow would drive to a man's heart. It flashed and glistened in the sun, and my flesh crept as the red devil, wounded unto death and almost helpless, reached out, laid the knife on the ground, and then sought to clutch the soil and drag his body toward me. An inch—two inches—three—five—ten— a foot! If he can have time he will pull himself across that space to within striking distance and then drive that knife into me! He reaches out again—he groans in pain—his fingers dig up the dirt—his eyes look blood red as he calls up his thirst for vengeance to help his muscles perform their work another inch—six inches—another foot! 1 feel the ground around me again as far as I can. No weapon—nothing to stop his advance! Ouce more he reaches out and deposits the knife. The black fingers sink into the soil and find a hold—the powerful muscles of a single arm pull his crippled body along inch by inch—inch by inch. There's a brighter blaze in his eyes—additional fury creeps into that steady' glare. He has been wounded unto death, but if he can kill me he will die without a regret—aye! with a shout of exultation on his lips. Inch by inch—coining, coming nearer, nearer! Two feet more and he can reach me and stab and thrust with that knife! But suddenly I notice that the firing has ceased. 1 hear the hoofbeats of galloping horses, and now half a dozen troopers ride up, aud one of them calls out: "Bless my stars! but here's our sergeant? Hello, old boy, catch a bullet? Down, boys, and look after him, and I'll just put an ounce ball into the head of this red devil who's been picking his teeth with his hunting knife. Stand clear a minute, boys! One, two, three— gone to Injun heaven, to fool with no more wagon trains!"—M. Quad in Now York World.

"After these things Jesus went over -tbe sea of Galilee, which is the sea of Tiberias." jAccording to Matthew, Mark and Luke this was shortly after the beheading of John the Baptist, and also the return of the twelve apostles from their missionary tour. The disciples of John, having buried bis body, went and told Jesus. The apos-tlfcs, having returned, gathered themselves tpgether unto Jesus and told Ilim all tilings, both what they had done and what they had taught (Math, xiv, 12; Mark vi, 30; Luke ix, 10). • 2. "And a great multitude followed Him, because they saw His miracles which He did on them that were diseased." There were so many coming and going that Jesus and His apostles had no time to eat, therefore He said to them, "Come apart into a desert place and rest awhile." So they departed by ship privately, to cross the sea to a desert place belonging to the city of Bethsaida (Luke ix, 10). But the people knew it and ran afoot out of all the cities and outwent them (Mark vi, 31-33). 3. "And Jesus went up into a mountain, and there He sat with His disciples." 4. "And the Passover, a feast of the Jews, was nigh." ' It is most interesting to notice that His teaching in the fifth, sixth and seventh chapters of this gospel is associated with •three different feasts of the Jews (chapters v, 1; vi, 4; vii, 2). When they were first instituted they were called "Feasts of the Lord" (Lev. xxiii, 2, 4, 37, 44), but now the Lord is so completely left out that they are only "Feasts of the Jews." 5. "When Jesus then lifted up His eyes, and saw a great company come unto Him." The testimony of the other three gospels is that He w;is moved with compassion toward them, because they were as sheep not having a shepherd; that He healed their sick, .and that He received tiiem and spake unto them of the kingdom of God. "He saith unto Philip, Whence shall we buy bread, that these may eat?" Philip was of Bethsaida, and Bethsaida Wiis the nearest city (John i, 44; Luke ix, 10). This may have been one reason why he asked Philip. This apostle is mentioned .'in the other gospels only once in each, in .connection with the choosing of the twelve; ; but he is mentioned by the writer of this gospel four different times (chapters i, 43- 48; vi, 5, 7; xii, 21, 22; xiv, 8, 9). 6. "And this He said to prove Him, for ; He Himself knew what He would do." Having chosen us to be His, He lovingly tests or tries or proves us day by day to lit us for better service. After many testings \ it is written iu reference to the hardest yet "God did tempt (or try) Abraham (Gen. xxii, 1). And concerning Israel it is written that the Lord their God led theni so as to humble and prove them and do them good at their latter end (Deut. viii, 2, 16). ilip answered Him, Two hundred fc"~ '" ™ti r""i fpr told the glasses in p3 Sncli a pair, probably not later the time of Charles II of England, is pri served in the British museum. These leather rimmed goggles appear to have been succeeded by glasses of the same shape with rims of tortoise shell and a steel waist. An example of the early part of the last centur)r, in the original black fishskin case, shows that there was difficulty in attaching the waist to the rim with the requisite firmness. Hence arose the rims with a rigid waist and side pieces for keeping the spectacles in position. But they were heavy and clumsy, whether in tortoise shell or horn, and the difficulty remained of making a reliable hinge in such brittle material. This eeems to have brought into existence the heavy gold, silver and steel spectacles of our grandfathers. — Jewelers' Weekly. Chinamen Cliew Gum. Seated together in a Broadway car were five Chinamen, all chewing gum. It was evidently their first experience with this deadly form of dissipation, but they were enjoying it immensely. They chewed and champed together and chattered away in their native tongue in the most animated fashion. The other passengers in the car were much interested, aiid watched the misguided Chinamen intently. The Ah Sins were as oblivious to the other passengers as if they were in the fantasy of an opium dream. By their gestures aud gibberish they made it plain to the spectators that they were discussing the deep mysteries of the slot machine from which they had extracted the gum. They also discussed the gum itself. They would hold it between their teeth, stretch it out until it would break, thrust it back into their mouths, chewing and chattering all the time. A ministerial looking man sitting opposite made a gesture of disapproval to one of the Chinamen. A smile stole into the slant eyes of the Celestial as he stopped chewing long enough to remark: "Chinaman likee. allee same."—New York Advertiser. : / If Regulars Off Duty. of S "I want to show you the effects of constant training," said a local military ^eh-^ t h u s i a s t . • -fW r We were standing on Whitehall street.

Andrew was one of the first to follow Jesus, and he was also of the city of Bethsaida (John i, 40, 44). Hi} was one of the four who privately asked the questions which drew from our Saviour the great discourse on last things, which is recorded in Mark xiii, Matt, xxiv and Luke xxi. 9. "There is a lad here which hath five barley loaves and two small fishes, but what are they among so many?" After healing and teaching the multitudes, the day being far spent, His disciples asked Him to send them away into the villages round about that they might buy themselves bread; upon which He said, "They need not depart, give ye them to eat." Then He asked how many loaves they had, and told them to go and see (Matt, xiv, 15, 16; Mark vi, 35-38). It was after that that Andrew reported the amount on hand, with the remark, "What are they among so many?" Impossible! was evidently the thought of each disciple. 10. "And Jesus said, Make the men sit down. Now there was much grass in the place. So the men sat down in number about five thousand." Mark says they sat upon the green grass in ranks by hundreds and by fifties. He who teaches by His Spirit through His servant to "Let all things be done decently and in order" fails not to set us the example Himself, for "God is not the author of confusion, but of peace" (I Cor. xiv, 33, 40). 11. "And Jesus took the loaves." He had said, "Bring them hitherto Me" (Matt, xiv, 18), remiuding us of "Come unto Me," "Bring him hither to Me," and of Elisha's "Let him come now to me" (Matt, xi, 28; xvii, 17; II Kings v, 8). Without Ilim we can do nothing (John xv, 5). "And when He had given thanks." The other three say that He looked up to heaven and blessed them. In all things He acknowledged the Father; even He testified, "I can of,mine own self do nothing" (chapter v, 30). "The Father that dwell-eth in Mp, He doeth the works" (chapter xiv, 10). Do we not see here wherein our great failures lie? "He distributed to the disciples, and the disciples to them that were set down, and likewise of the fishes as much as they would." 12. "When they were filled, He said unto His disciples, Gather up the fragments that remain, that nothing be lost," "They did all eat and were filled," so say Matthew, Mark arid Luke. They had not '"eacha little," as Philip had thought might possibly be accomplished if the two hundred pence had been forthcoming and the bread obtainable, but all had "as much as tihey would" (verse 11). When teachers and preachers receive the living bread directly frbm Him the people will never go away With,just-a..little, but will be filled for the time being and want to come fop more, 13. "Therefore they gathered together, and filled twelve baskets with the frag' ments of the five barley loaves, which remained over and above unto them that had eaten." Twelve baskets over arid above! What a contrast (to,the five loaves and two fishes with which they started 1 And 5,000 men ihfid bee/i abundantly fed, besides women and children (Matt, xiv, 21).

It won't make new lungs—but it will make diseased ones healthy when nothing else will. There's reason for it, too. Consumption is Lung-scrofula. For every form of scrofula, and all blood-taints, the "Discovery " is a positive cure. It's the most potetit strength - restorer, blood - cleanser, and flesh - builder known to medical science. For Weak Lungs, Spitting of Blood, Bronchitis, Asthma, Catarrh, and all lingering Coughs, it's an une-qualed remedy. It's a guaranteed one. If it doesn't benefit or cure, you have your money back. You've everything to gain from, it—nothing to lose. It's especially potent in curing Tetter, Salt-rheum, Eczema, Erysipelas, Boils, Carbuncles, Sore Eyes, Goitre, or Thick Neck, and Enlarged Glands, Tumors and Swellings, Great, Eating Ulcers rapidly heal under its benign influence, childS And School of Sliort-Hsind nnd FALL TKKM OPENS SEl'T. 1st, la'Jl.

This may do for some merchants, but it will never do for John F. O'Hcar. Our customers " eat to live and live to eat," and this is just the sea son of the year that a 'clean, well-kept and well-stocked store draws the trade. This of course is especially applicable to the grocery department. People may not burn so much kerosene oil these long days and short nights, but they eat just. a« much bread and butter and drink just as much tea and coffee as in winter. No cook can make green apple pie or doughnuts without, flour and sugar anv more in summer than in winter—it is all in the mind of the grumbling merchant. We have no time to stop for that business, and your trade is what we are after. Come and see us early and often. ll F.
