Though you may say there shall 13 no
enre or anxiety, there will be care and
there will bo anxiety. In l('tM the cap
tain general provided a very grand en
tertainment, and among other things
Jio had a fountain in his garden a
fountain of strong drink. In it were
four hogsheads of brandy, eight hogs
heads of water, 25, COO lemons, thirteen
hundredweight of Lisbon sugar, live
jiounds of grated nutmeg, 0 toasted
biscuit, and a I mile on 'mrpose was
placed in the fountain and a loy rowed
around it and filled the cups of the peo
ple who came there to lie supplied. Well,
-von Kn- lhat was a luxurious entertain-
ment, anl cf course the man liad no
anxiety; but I have to tell you that, j
though you. had or propose an entertain- j
merit like that, you have anxiety. In J
that very thing comes the divine re- i
ward. We were lorn to serve, and when
Wt gerve others, we serve God. The ilush
on t.hat woman's cheek, as she bends over j
the hit stove, is as sacred in God's sight j
ns the i?1 on tlie cheek of one who, on j
n hot dav preaches the Gospel. We may
serve God with plate, and cutlery, and j
broom; as certainly as we can serve him j
with psalm b.'k and liturgy. Margaret. :
queen of Norv Sweden, and Den- j
mark, had a r.Val cup cf ten hps. on .
which were reco.v'cd tlie r.ames of the (
guests who had ,'Iiunk from this cup. i

was invited to the house of a nobleman. ,
He said: "I will come on one condition, j

and that is that you nave noxmng m,

was complied with. Cyrus, king of

prescribed that on the table there must l-c

"extremes, but they arc illustrations of the

The liist reward of Christian hospitality
it tli4: divine U-Tieiliclion. When anyone
attends to this duty, God's blessing comes
i!p4i him, ujHiu his companion, uon his
childr4.11, uhih his dining hall, upon his
pail4r, UJKII1 his nursery. Tho blessing
conn s in at tho front dxr, and tho back
door, and down through the skylights.
(hmI draws a lung mark of credit for ser-vi4-4-s
receiver!. Christ said to his discifiles:
'1 h-that reeeiveth you, receiveth me; ami
he that givelh a ctii of coM water in the
name of a distaplo shall in no wise lose
his reward." As wo have hail bo many
things rccorde-d sigaiust us in heaven, it
will lie a satisfaction to have written on
unfailing archives tho fact that in tho
month of May, or June, or Scptcnilier, or
L)ecemler, 1SS7, wo niado tho blissfid
mistake of supiKising that we wero enter
taining weak men like ourselves, when
I! they showed tlieir pinions before they
left, and we found out that they were
angels unawares.
Another reward comes in tho good
wishes ami prayers of our guests. I do
not think one's houso ever gets over
having had a good man or woman ubide
then-. George WhiteficM used to scratch
0:1 tlii: wimlow of tlnj room where ho was
entertained -a passage of Scripture, and in
01 n case, after he left, the whole house
hold was con veiled by tho muling of that
passage on the window pane. Tho
woman of Shmiem furnished a little
loom over the wall for Klisha, and all the
ages have heard the glorious consequences.
On a col l. stormy winter night my
h.thcr entertained Trueman Osborne, the
evangelist, and through all eternity I will
thank (hnl that Trueman Osborne stopied
atourlmuse. How many of our guests
have brought for us condolence and sym
pathy ami help! There is a legend told
of St. Sehalil, that in his Christian roumls
li4! used to stop for entertainment - at the
li4uso of a ioor cartwright. Coming
tliere one day, ho found tho cartwright
and his family freezing for tho lack '
any fuel. St. Sebald ordered the n. .11
to go and break tho icicles from the side
of the house and bring them in, and tho
icicle.-: ' - ::;':.! !..! ' ' I tsc and
thrown on the in..; ii., ih.'y .! .; an to
blaze immediately,; and the freezing fani
iiy gathered around and wero warmed
by them. That was a legend; but how
often have our guests come in to gather
up the coM, freezing sorrows of our life,
kindling them into illumination and
warmth and good cheer. IIo who opens
his house to Christian hospitality turns
those who are strangers into friends.
Years will go by and there will be great
changes in you, and thero will be a great
change in them. Some day you will be
sitting in loneliness, watching a bereave
ment," and you will get a letter in a
strange handwriting, and you will look
at the postoliice mark and say: "Why,
I don't know anybody living in that
city;" and you will break the envelope,
and there you will read the story of
thanks for your Christian generosity
long years liefore, and how they
have hoard afar off of your trouble. And
he letter will lie so full of kindly renii
nu'cences and Christian condolence it will
Ije a 'plaster large enough to cover up nil
the de?p gashes of your soul. When we
take people into our houses as Christian
guests, we take them into our sympathies
forever. In Uort, Holland, a soldier
with a sword at his side stopjied at a
house, desiring lodging and shelter. The
woman of tho house at first refused ad
mittance, saying that the men of the
house were not at home; but when ho
showed his credentials that he had leen
honorably discharged from tho army, ho
was admitted and tarried during tho night.
In the night time thero wag a knocking
at the front door, and two ruffians broke
in to despoil that household. No sooner
had they come over tho doorsill than the
armed guest, who had primed his piece
ami charged it with slugs, met them, and
telling tho woman to stand back, I am
happy to say, dropped the two assaulting
dcseradoes dead at his feet. Well, now
there are no bandits prowling around to
destroy our houses; but how often it is
that wo find those that have been our
guests become our defenders. We gave
l hum shelter fii bt, and then afterwards in
the great conflicts of dife they fought for
our reputation, they fought for our prop
erty, they fought for our soul.
Another reward that comes from Chris
tian hospitality is in the assurance that
we shall have hospitality shown to us and
to ours. In tho upturnings cf this. life
who knows in what city or what land we
may be thrown, and how much we may
need an open door? There may come no
such crisis to us, but our children may
be thrown into some such 6trait. He
who is in a Christian manner hospitable
has a free pass through all Christendom.
It may be that j ou will have been dead
fifty years liefore any such stress shall
come upon one of your descendants; but
do you not suppose that God can remem
ber fifty years? and the knuckle of the
grandchild will be heard against the
door of some stranger, and that door will
open, and it will be talked over in
heaven, and it will be said: "That man's
grandfather, fifty years ago, gave shelter
to a stranger, and now a stranger's door
is open for a grandson."
Among the Greeks, after entertaining
and being entertained, they take a piece
of lead and cut it in two, and the host
takes one half of the piece of lead and
the guest takes the other half as they
j art. These two pieces of lead are
handed down from generation to genera
tion, and from family to family, and
after a while, perhaps one of the families
in want or in trouble go out with this one
piece of lead anil find the other family
with the corresponding piece of lead, and
no sooner is the tally completed than the
old hospitality is aroused and eternal
friendship pledged. So the memory of
Christian hospitality will go down from
generation to generation, and from fam
ily to family, and the tally will never bo
lost, neither in this world nor the world
to come.
Malk this: Tlie day -will come when
we will all be turned out of doorg
without any exception bare foot, taro
head, no water in the canteen, no bread
in the haversack, and wo will 50 In that
way into the future world. And I won-

j fore us, and if wo will o received into
everlasting habitations? Francis Fresco
bald was a rich Italian, and ho was very
merciful and very hospitable. Ono day
.ui Englishman by the name of Thomas
Cromwell apoared at his door asking for
shelter and alms, which were cheerfully
rendered. Freseoliald afterward lost all
his projerty, liecamo very jxior, and
wandered up into England, and ono
day ho saw a procession psussing,
and lo! it was tho lord chancellor of
England, and lo! tho lord chancellor of
England was Thomas Cromwell, the very
man whom he had onco liefriendod down
in Italy. The lord chancellor at the first
glance of l 'rescohald recognized him and
dismounted from his carriage, threw his
arms around him and embraced him,
paid his debts, invited him to his house
ami said: "Here are ten pieces of money
to pay for the bread you gave me, and
hen? are ten pieces of money to provide
for tho horse you loaned me, and here
are four bags, in each of which are 400
ducats. Take them and lo well." So it
will lie at last with us. If wo entertain
Christ in the jierson of his disciples in
this world, when wo pass up into the
next country wo will meet Christ In a
regal procession, and he will jiour all tlje
wealth of heaven into our lap and open
before us everlasting hospitalities. And
0 how tame are the richest entertain
ments wo can givo on earth compared
with the regal munificence which Christ
will display beforo our souls in heaven!

A Demand on Torpedo Roattt.
Decidedly tho time has como when the
torpedo boats must do something, no
matter what, to justify their existence.
For any powers they havo of late shown
themselves to be possessed of they are
only to bo spoken of along with the gal
lant Bugaboo, and "a royal salute of
bricks" would be a fit recognition of
their imaginary merits. "At Toulon re
cently tho torpedo boats failed so badly
that even their great patron, Admiral
L'Aube, threw them over; at the recent
maneuvers they disabled themselves one
after another, liko crazy wasps, and yes
terday's attack upon the fleet in the So-
.lent sooms to havo been tho worst fiasco
of all. Capt. Ixing, we are told, "han
dled his flotilla of twonty boats In a most
masterly and scientific manner," so the
fault must tie in tho boats themselves.
Yet, says another correspondent, "it
seemed to all- who watched the fight
closely that very few torpedo boats could
have passed the outiost8 so skillfully
posted by Liout. Slado, and if any had
got through they would inevitably have
lieen sunk -by fire from tlie ironclads."
And besides those in tho action a few ran
aground for variety's sake, although, says
a sarcastic witness, "without suffering
any material injury beyond theoretical
destruction." As we said before, a tor
pedo boat must blow up something just
to show that she can do it with all tho
chances in her favor. Fall Mall Gazette.
Novel Tour by Five Artists.
I have heard often of artists who made
a sketcliing tour in some old craft, hired
for tho purpose, and navigated along the
coast of Maine or to tho provinces; but
until recently I never knew cf a railroad
car being employed for a similar purpose.
A young artist whom I met at tho club
told me that he and four or five others
had leased an old passenger car from ono
of tho local railways. They paid very
littlo for it and at a small cost they have
fitted it for a journey. One end is pro
vided with sleeping lierths, and the rest
of the car is a "living," dining and cook
ing room. They have laid in a stock of
provisions, and aro to be attended by a
man servant, who will cook and keep
house generally. The car will bo hauled
by local freight trains chiefly, and the
part- will stop wherever tho fancy strikes
them. Of course this movable house can
bo side tracked and left at any point as
long as the inmates desire, so that they
will bo able to make excursions from it,
being away over night if they so please,
and leaving the servant in charge.

The Kaiser to Live Five Tears.
A letter just received from Gastein
gives a very reassuring account of the
6tate of the German emperor's health.
The writer, after remarking that his
majesty will perhaps owe the prolonga
tion of his life to this visit to his favorite
watering place, goes on to say that he
walks sprucely far better than most old
men of 75 or SO. He does not lean on
the arms of his attendants, but he is a
little bent. Tlie writer adds: "The em
peror's physician tells me that he is de
cidedly better than he was last year, and
that it is not only possible, but probable,
that he will live five or six years longer."

Surprising Statements Made by a French
MUtioiturjfOrlgln of the Idea.
Abbe Larricu, formerly a missi4.nary
in China, has published a pamphlet (Paris,
Leroux), on the great wall of China, to
demonstrate that this Htructuro docs not
exist and lias never existed. The opu
lar belief is that this wall stretches for
alniut 800 leagues across China, from tho
wa to the province of Kan-Su, that it is
wholly constructed of cut stone, and 80
cubits high by 12 broad. It is believed
to run straight 011 regardless of oljstac !os,
going down valleys and up mountains,
without a break, except such as time has
made, along its whole course. This no
tion originated with a Jesuit named Jlar
tini, who visited China alxjut KiaO, and
his description was followed by sul
quent writers.
M. Iirricu lias liviil for several years
under what would have lieen the shadow
of the Great Wall hail there lieen one; he
has studied the writings of recent writers
especially Ablie Hue who have crossed
the lino of the alleged wall in various
places; he has likewiso studied tho
Chinese history of tho subject, and his
conclusions are as follows: (1) The term
"Great Wall" is at the I attorn of all tho
misunderstanding, and it comes from
the Chinese expression, "the wall of
the ten thousand li;" (2) as desciibl
hy Martini and other writers who
have copied him, thi. wall does not
and never did exist; (i!) a Chinese
emiKTor undoubtedly did conceive
the idea of a great wall from tho Gulf of
Liao-Long 011 the east to Kan-Su on the
west, ami this, though never realized,
had a beginning; (4) all along the pro
poised lino of the wall square towel's of
earth, or of earth faced with brick, were
constructed at considerable distances from
each other, but these wero never joined
together by any wall as was originally
In Romo of tho defiles along tho route
there aro wall, but theso wero intended
to close theso particular passages, or thoy
are merely tho walls of villages, and are
not parts of a larger scheme. Hence tho
only part of the scheme of tho Great
Wall carried out was the construction of
theso scattered towers; tho rest never
went lioyoiid tho brain that conceived it;
it was never more than a fancy, and it is
now a myth. This huge Chinese wall,
says Ablie Larrieu, is a huge Chinese lie,
and as for the million soldiers which wero
said to guard it night and day, they aro
myths likewise. Tho alleged Great Wall
is a favorite excursion for Europeans
visiting Pekin, and such a question as
whether it exists at all or not shoulil lie
an easy one to settle definitely. London
Japan's Commercial Fort.
Yokohama is tho greatest commercial
port of tho empire, and its imjiortance is
increasing steadily year by year. Fine
steamers enter and leave its harbor every
day, and it is in telegraphic communica
tion with all parts of the world. Its most
important export at the present time is
silk, the value of that sent to the United
States and Europe last year amounting to
$12,500,000. Tea comes next in order of
importance, and almost all of it is sent
direct to San Francisco for American
consumption. That sent to the United
States last year was valued at $:l,750,000,
and the amount exported is slowly but
Bteadily increasing.
Of 4,000 foreigners in Yokohama near

France Against Oleomargarine.
France has enacted a stringent law "to
repress frauds in the sale of butter." It
prohibits selling or cxjiosing for sale, im
lort or export, under the name of butter,
of any margarine or other substitute for
butter or mixture of any substance with
butter. Retail dealers in oleomargarine
or other substitutes for butter are to no
tify buyers of the character of the arti
cle and to have it plainly marked on the
package. Manufacturers and wholesale
dealers are to plaiidy mark or brand every
package so as to show the actual charac
ter of ita contents, and all transportation
companies or persons who carry any sub
stitutes for butter are to keep plainly en
tered in tlieir books and way bills a record
of the brands or marks of all such pack
ages transported. The penalties for vio
lation of the law aro imprisonment from
six days to six months and line of $10 to
