MAKINO MUSIC AS TIIKV FLY.
I propose, so far a God may help me,
this morning, carrying out thu idea of the
text, to show that tho bird of the air huve
Biore sagacity than men. And I begin by
particularising and saying that they min
gle music with their work. Tho most seri
ous undertaking of a bird's life Is this an
nual travel from the UuiUon to the Amn
ion, from the Thames to the Nile. Natu
ralists toll us that they arrive theru thin
and weary und plumage milled, and yet
they go Blnglpg all the way; tho ground,
the lower lino of the music; tho sky, the
upper line of the music; themselves, the
note scattered up nud down between.
1 suppose their song gives elasticity to
their wing and help on with the journey,
dwindling a thousand mile into four hun
dred. Would to God that we wero as wise
aaihoy in mingling Christian song with our
everyduy workl I believe there is such a
tblng ns taking thu pitch of Christian de
votion In thu morning and keeping it all
the day. I think we might take some of
the dullest, heaviest, most disagreeable
work of our life and set It to tho tune of
"Antloch" or "Mount Pisguli."
It Is i good sign when you hear a work
man whistle. It I a better sign when you
hear lilm hum a roundelay. It Is n still
better sign when you hear him sing the
words of Isaac Watts or Charles Wesley.
A violin chortled and strung, If something
accidentally mike it, makes music, and 1
aupposo then Is such a thing ns having
our hearts so attuned by divine grace that
even the rough collisions of life will make
b heavenly vibration. I do not believe
that the power of Christian song has yet
been fully tried. I liellevc that If you
could roll the "Old Hundred" doxoloy
through Wall street It would put an end
to tiny financial disturbance! I bclie"e
that the discords, and the sorrows, and the
si ns of tbe world lire to be swept out by

Some one asked Haydn, the celebrated
musician, why hu always composed such
cheerful music. "Why," hu said, "I can't
do otherwise. When I think of God my
mail Is so full of joy that the notes leap
and dance from my pen." I wish we might
all exult melodiously before the !ord.
With God for our Father and Christ for
ur Saviour, and heaven for our home, and
!"vels for future companions, nud eternity
for allfetlme. we should strlkeall the notes

A reader residing at Waco, Tex., writes
as fellows: "I witnessed n transmutation
iu San Saba county, this state, in tho
spring of 1H.VJ. In a little dirty, stagnant
pool I saw a quantity of horsehairs, some
of which were wriggling at a great rate.
I got oh my horse and examined them.
A minute snake's head was visible at the
upper or root end of each hair, nnd I could
even see what appeared to be the puisa
not such as to mnko necessary any great
diiTcrcuccs. Generally speaking, tho
rate in tho cuflo of steamships plying to
English ports runs from $30 to $10. Iu
n few cases $15 is asked, but that is thu
limit. Thu French and German Hues,
howovor, ask considerably moru, and
doubtless offer better accommodations.
Their ratu is from $00 to 03.
The steerago faru is $20, with a small
additional clmrgu when thu traveler's
objective point is n Swedish, Norwegian
or Danish port.
Until about 1875 tho cabin rates of
most of tho lines wero pretty much alike,
varying from $70 to tJlOO, according to
thu berth. Then thu Ciiuurd mid White
Star forged ahead of their rivals, fur
nished iMitter accommodations and
charged moro for them. Tho results aro
now evident on evury hand. Tho sec
ond cabin rates at that timo wero $40,
sometimes $45, nud thu steerage to or
from Dritish ports $28. So long as tho
stream of immigration to tho United
States lasted everything was lovely. Thu
steamship companies bad all they could
do to handle tho tremendous flood of
tious of the arteries of the body. For travel which sped westward, ana ttiey

year 1880, which saw tho climax of steer-
ago travel across tho Atlantic, witnessed
also thu commencing struggles of a bitter
competition for business. So keen did the
rivalry become that in 1885 passengers
wero being convoyed from Liverpool to
Now York for ten dollars. When 0110
1 remembers that out of this sum the
soiling agent was allowed a commission
, of two dollars, ono is at a loss to under-
J stand how tho business could bo carried
1 on. However, such a statu of nllaiis
could not long endure, and tho ratu was
gradually Increased to twenty dollars,
its present figure.
Tho influence of this long lasting dis
turbance, in steerage fares was felt,
though not to a very great oxtent, in tho
second cabin and resulted iu a rcductiou
in several cases of from iivo to ten dol
lars iu intermediate fares.
Tho greatest factor in tho unsottling of
steerago rates is tho Scandinavian trndo.
Properly tho business belongs to tho di
rect lines from Swedish and Norwegian
ports, but tho Liverpool companies every

tecuru a good share of it. Tho result is
that tho month of April almost invaria
