This is the nutriment and life of the
plain Gospel that I recommend yoa. I
do not know bow some of our ministers
make it so intricate and elaborate aad
mystifying a thing. It seems as if they
had a sort of mongrelism ia religion
part huraanitarianism, part spiritual
ism, part notbingarianlsm and some
times you think they are bulldiag their
temple out of the "Bock of Ages," "but
you find there is ao rook in it alL It is
stucco. The Gospel is plain. It is
bread. There Is no fogs hovering over
this river of life. All the fogs hover
over tho marsh of human speculation.
If you .can aot tell whea you hear a
man preach whether or not he believes
in the plenary inspiration of the
Scriptures, it is because be does not
believe in it If, when you hear a man
preach, you can not tell whether or not
he believes that sin is inborn, it is be
cause he does not think it is congenital.
If, when you hear a man talk in pulpit
or prayer meeting, you can not make up
your mind whether or not he believos
in regeneration, it is because he does
not believe in it If, when you hear a
man speak on religious themes, you can
not make up your mind whether or not
he thinks the righteous and the wicked
will come out at tbe samo place, then it
is because he really believes their des
tinies are conterminous.
Do not talk to me about ft man being
doubtful about tbe doctrines of grace.
He is not doubtful to me at alL Bread
is bread and I know it tho moment I see
it I had a corn field which I cultured
with my own hand. I did aot' ask once
in all the summer: "Is this corn?" I
did not hunt up the Agriculturist to get
a picture of corn. I was born in sight
of a corn field, and I know all about it
When theso Israelites came to Canaaa
and looked off upon the fields, the cry
was: "Corn! coral" And if a man has
once tasted of this Heavenly bread, he
knows it right away. He can tell this
corn of tho Gospel Canaan from "tho
chaff which the wind drivoth away."
I bless God so many have found this
Gospel corn. It is the bread of which
if a man eat ho shall never hunger.
But alas for the famine struckl
Enough corn, yet it seems you have no
sickle to cut it no mill to grind it no
flro to bake it no appetite to eat it
Starving to death, when tho plain is
golden with a magnificent harvest!
I rode somo thirteen miles to see the
Alexander, a large steamship that was
beached near Southampton, Long Island.
It was a splendid vessel. As I walked
up and down tho decks and in the
cabins, I said: "What a pity that this
vossol should go to pieces, or be lying
here idle!" The coast wreckers had
spent 930,000 trying to get her off, and
they succeeded once; but she came back
to tho old place. While I was walk-
ing on deck every part of the
vessel trembled with tho boating
of tho surf on ono side. Since then
I heard that that vessel, which was
worth hundreds of thousands of dol
lars, was sold for $3,500 and knocked to
pieces. Tboy had given up the idea of
getting her to sail again. How suggest
ive all that is to me! Thero aro those
hero who aro aground in religious
things. Once you started for Hoavon,
but you aro now aground. SoveralJ
times it was thought that you had start
ed again heavenward, but you soon got
back to tho. old place, and there Is not
mach prospect that you will over reach
the harbors of tho blessed. God's rec
ords, 1 fear, will pronounce you a hope
less case. Beached for eternity! And
then it will be written in Heaven con
cerning somo one of your size, and com
plexion, and ago, and name, that he
was invited to be saved, but refused tho
offer, and starved to death within sight
of tho fields and granaries full of the
old corn of Canaaa.

we often see the green cabbage batter

green color, it is dark. It is parasitised,
and should not be killed. By preserv

Of tho Diptera, or two-winged flies,
we have both predaceous aad parasitic
families. Thus this order furnishes us
with somo of our best friends, as well
as with somo of our worst enemies. The
same order that gives us tho Hessiaa
fly, wheat midge, wheat bulb-worm,
onion maggot and apple maggot also
gives us the robber flies. Syrpbus fliot
and Tachina flies.
Asildm or Robber Flies. Theso flies,
as their namo indicates, are fierce
and Strong, and possess a very powerful
sneking ooak. Thero aro two types.
Ono of theso (3gure 1) is usually gray or
dark occasionally yellow with along,
tapering abdomen. The other (figure
) is robust and usually covered with
yellow hairs, so that it much resembles
the bumble bees. Tho robber flies pos
sess a courage worthy of their name, I
havo seen ono of the first type attack
and overcome tho fierce strong tiger
beetle. Indeed, they do not fear to
grasand suck tho juices from the
boney bee. In tho South, both types
aro often discovered capturing and din
ing on the honey bee that has just re
turned from tho field laden with honey.
Thus they often do no small harm; yet I
beliovo that evon in the South their
benefits exceed their injuries.
Syrpbidm, or Syrphus Files. The
Syrphus flies (Fig. 3) are beautiful,
often yellow banded flies, that fly
with exceeding rapidity, and often re
main poised in tbe air as if Tiold by
somo invisible hand; but upon the least

They aro f o n n d
about flowers in company with bees
and wasps, which they often mimic
in a wonderful manner. This mim
icry, no doubt often preserves them.
It deceives tho bird that would swal
low the fly, except that the fear of
a sting restrains it These flies lay
their scores of eggs in the midst of
plant lice. From theso eggs hatch a
conical maggot (Fig. 4), which varies
in color from drab to brown. It is often
seen extending its pointed mouth end
about for lice, and when one of them is
