in sheaves. Attfca aide of the field a
white tent ia which to take the nooning,
jars of vinegar or of sour wine to que neb
the thirst of the hof working' people.
Swarthy men striking their sickles into
the rustling; barley. Others twisting
the bands for the sheaves, patting one
end of the band under the arm and with
the free arm and foot collecting the
sheaf. Sunburnt women picking up the
stray straws and bringing them to the
binders. Boaz, a fine looking Oriental,
gray bearded and bright faced, the own
er of the field, looking on and estimat
ing the value 1 the grain and calculat
ing 30 many epaas to the acre; and,
with his large, sympathetic heart,
pitying the overtasked workmen
and the 'women, with white
faces enough to- faiat ia the hot noon
day sun. But there is one woman who
especially attracts the man's attention.
She is soon to P with him the joint
owner of the field. She has come from
a distant land for the sole purpose of
being kind to an aged woman. I know
not what her featares were, but when
the Lord God aets behind a woman's
face the lamp of courage, and faith, and
self sacrifice, there comes" out a glory
independent of features. She is to be
the ancestress of Jesus Christ lioaz,
the owner of the field, as soon as he un
derstands that it is Ruth, accosts her
with a blessing: "A full reward bo given
thee of the Lord God of Iraol, under
whose wings thou art come to trust"
Christ compares himself to a ben gath
ering the chickens under her wings. In
Deuteronomy, God is represented as an
eagle stirring up her nest In a great
many places in the Psalms, David
makes ornithological allusions; while
my text mentions tho wings of God, un
der which a poor, weary soul had come
I ask your attention, therefore, while,
taking tho suggestion of my text I
speak to you in all simplicity and love
of the wings of the Almighty.
First I remark that they wero swift
wings under which Ruth had come to
trust Thcro is nothing in all tho
handiwork of God more curious than a
bird's wing. You have been surprised,
sometimes, to see how far it could fly
with one stroke of the' wing; and, when
it has food in prospect or when it is af
frighted, the pulsations of tho bird's
wing are unimaginablo for velocity.
The English Lords usod to pride them
selves on the speed of their falcons.
These birds when tamed had in them
tho dart of lightning, llow swift wero
tho carrier pigeons in tho time of An
thony and at the siege of Jerusalem!
Wonderful speed! A carrier pigeon was
thrown up at Rouen and came down at
Ghent ninety miles off in ono hour.
The carrior pigeons woro tho tele
graphs of tho olden time. Swal
lows have been shot in our latitude hav
ing the undigested rice of Georgia
swamps in theircrops, showing that they
had come 400 miles in six hours. It has
been estimated that in tho ten years of
a swallow's life it flics far enough to
have gone around tho world eighty-nine
times, so great is its velocity. And so
the wings of the Almighty, spoken of
in tho text are swift wings. They are
when they drop upon a foe, and
swift when they come to help God's
friends. If a father and his son be
walking by the way and tho child goes
too near a precipice, how long does it
take for tho father to deliver tho child
from danger? Longer than it takes
God to swoop for tho rescue of his
children. The fact is that you can not
get away from tho care of Hod. If you
take the steamship or the swift rail
train Ho is all the time along with you.
"Whither shall I go from Thy spirit
and whither shall I flee from Thy pres
ence? If I ascend up into Heaven,
Thou art there. If I make my bed in
hell, behold! thou art thcro. If I tako
tho wings of tbo morning and dwell in
the uttermost parts of tho sea, ovon
there Thy hand shall hold me."
The Arabian gazello is swift as tho
wind. If it gets but one glimpse of tho
hunter it puts many crags between.
Solomon four or five times compares
Christ to an Arabian gazelle (calling it
by another name), when ho says: "My
Beloved is like a roe." The differonco
is that tho roe speeds tho other way;
Jesus speeds this. Who but Christ
could have been quick enough to have
helped Peter when tho water pavoment
broke? Who but Christ could have
been quick enough o have helped the
Duke of Argylo when, in bis dying mo
ment, he cried: "Good cheer! I could
die liko a Roman, but I mean to die
Uko a Chr.stian. Como away, gentle
men. He who goes first goes cleanest!"
I bad a friend who stood by the rail
track at Carlisle, Pa., when tho ammu
nition had given out at Antiotam. and
e saw the train from Harrisburg,
weighted with shot and shell, as it
went thundering down toward the
battle field. Ho said that it stopped
not for any crossing. They put down
tho brakes for no grade. They
held up for no poriL Tho wheels wero
on fire with tho speed as thoy dashed
past If tho train did not como up in
time with tho ammunition it might as
well not como at all. So, my friends,
there aro times in our lives when we
must have help immediately or perish.
The graco that comes too lato is no
grace at all. What you and I want is a
God now. O, is it not blessed to think
that God is always in such quick pursuit
of his dear children? When a sinner
seeks pardon, or a baffled soul needs
help, swifter than thrush's wing, swift
er than ptarmigan's wing, swifter than
flamingo's wing, swifter than eagle's
wing are tbo wings of the Almighty.
I remark further, carrying out the
idea or my text that tho wings under
which Ruth had come to trust were very
broad wings. There have been eagles
shot on tho Rocky Mountains with
wings that were sevca feet from tip to
tip. When tbo king of the air sits oa
the craig. tho wings are spread over all
the eaglets in the eyrie, and when the
eagle starts from the rock the shadow is
like the spreading of a storm cloud. So
the wings of God are broad wings.
Rath had been under those wiags ia
her infantile days; ia the days of her
happy girlhood ia Moan; ia the day
when she gave her hand to Jf anion, ia
her first marriage, ia the day whea aha
wept over his grave; ia the day
she trudged oat iatothe wuder-
of poverty; in the days whea aha
nicked up tho few straws af
ley dropped by ancient eastern ia the
way of the poor.
O.yes, the wiags of Gad

when you envied those who were

the faithlessness of the human' heart!
God's wings are broad, whether we know
it or not
Sometimes the mother bird goes away
from the nest and it seems very strange
that she should leave the callow young.
She plunges her beak into the bark of
the tree and she drops into the grain
field, and into the chaff at the barn door,
and into the f urrough of the plowboy.
Meanwhile tho birds in tho nest shiver,
and complain, and call, and wonder why
the mother bird does not come back
Ab, she has gone for food. After a
while there is a whirr of wings and the
mother bird stands on the edge of the
nest and the little ones open their
mouth, and the food is dropped in; and
then tho old bird spreads out her
feathers, and all is peace. So, some
times, God leaves us. He goes off to get
food for our soul, and then no comes
back after awhile to the nest and says:
"Open thy mouth wide, and I will fill
it" and Ho drops into it the sweet
promises of His grace, and the lavo of
God is shed abroad, and we are under
nis wings the broad wings of the
Yes; they aro very broad! Thore is
room undor those wings for the 1,600,
000,000 of the race. You say: "Do not
get tho invitation too large, for there is
nothing mora awkward than to havo
more guests than accommodations." I
know it Tho seamen's friend societv
is inviting all the sailors. The tract
society is inviting all tho destitute.
Tho Sabbath schools aro inviting all the
children. Tho missionary society is in
viting all tho heathen. Tho printing
presses of tho Biblo societies aro going
night and day, doing nothing but print
ing invitations to this great gospel ban
quet And aro you not afraid that thero
will bo moro guests than accommoda
tions? No! All who have been invited
will not half fill up tho tablo'of God's
supper. Thero aro chairs for mora
Thcro aro cups for more. God could
with ono feather of his wing cover up
all those who havo come; and when
Ho spreads out both wings thoy cover
all the earth and all the heavens.
Ye Israelites, who went through tho
Red sea, como under! Ye multitudes
who havo gono into glory for tho last
C.000 years, come under! Yo hundred
and forty-four thousand, and tho thou
sands of thousands, come under! Ye
flying cherubim and archangel, fold
your pinions and como under!
And yet thoro is room! Ay! if God
would bavo all tho space under his
wings occupied, Ho must mako other
worlds, and people them with other
myriads, and havo other resurrection
and judgment days; for. broader than all
space, broader than thought wido as
eternity, from tip to tip, are the wings
of the Almighty: O! under such provis
ion as that can you not rejoice? Como
under, yo wandering, yo woary, ye
troubled, ye sinning, yo dying souls!
Como under the wings of the Almighty.
Whosoever will come, let him come.
However ragged, however wretched,
however abandoned, however woo be
gone, there is room enough under the
wings under tho broad wings of the
Almighty! O, what a gospel, so glori
ous, so magnificent in its provision! I
lovo to preach it It is my lifo to preach
it It is my heaven to preach it
I remark further, that the wiags un
der which Ruth came to trust were
strong wings. Tho strength of a bird's
wings of a sea fowl's wings, for exam
ple you might guess it from tho fact
that sometimes for five, six or seven
days it seems., to fly without resting.
There havo been condors in the Andes
that could overcome an ox or a stag.
Thero have been eagles that have picked
up children and swung thorn to tho top
of tho cliffs. The flap of an eagle's
wing has death in it to evory thing it
strikes. Thero aro birds whoso wings
are packed with strength to fly, to lift
to destroy. So tho wings of God are
strong wings. Mighty to save. Mighty
to destroy. I preach him "the Lord,
strong and mighty tho Lord, mighty
in battle!" He flapped his wing, and
the antediluvian world was gone. He
Happed His wing and Babylon perished.
He flapped His wing and Herculaneum
was buried. Ho flapped His wingand the
Napoleonic dynasty ceased. Before the
stroke of that pinion a fleet is nothing.
An army is nothing. An empire is noth
ing. A world is nothing. The universe
is nothing. King Eternal, Omnipotent
He asks no counsel from the throno of
Heaven. He takes not the archangel
into nis cabinet He wants none to
draw His chariots, for they are the
winds. None to load his batteries for
they are the lightnings. None to tie
the sandals of His feet for they are the
clouds. Mighty to save. Our enemies
may bo strong, our sorrows violent Our
sins may be great Bat quicker than
an eagle ever hurled from the crags
a hawk or raven, will tho Lord strike
back our sins and our temptations, if
they assault us when we are once seated
on the eternal, rock of His salvation.
What a blessed thing it is to be defend
ed by the strong wing of the Almighty!
Stronger than the pelican's wing,
stronger than the albatross' wing,
stronger than the condor's wing, are the
wings of the Almighty.
I have only oae more thought to pre
sent The wiags under which Sath bad
come to trust were gentle wings. Thero
is nothing softer than a feather. Yoa
have noticed when a bird returas from
flight bow geatly it stoops over the
aest The young birds are aot afraid
of haviag their lives trampled oat by
the mother bird; the old whip-aoar-will
drops iato its nest of leaves, the oriole
iato its casket of bark, the huamiag
bird iato ita hammock of moss geatle

He shall cover thee with his wing. O,

AN IDEAL MOSSBACK.

Tho Indian is a mossback. To such a
degree eminent is this, that I have beard
from certain Marco Polos of the West
that these mosses offered coverts and
lurking places for tree toads and other
life alien and foreign to the Indian. I
do not, however, believe this.
The Indian is absolutely non-progressive.
He will wear breeches if your
philanthropy takes that form; that is he
will wear them after some architectural
alterations touching their rear elevation
from which they emerge as leggins. But
he will not make breeches for himself.
Ho will use a paleface gun or saddle and
many of the paleface's garments when
he can get them, but it will never enter
his bead to attempt to mako them him
self. When the paleface luxury wears
out or breaks he returns phlegmatically
to early principles in supplying their
place This is one of the main differ
ences between a white maa and an In
dian. The whites are inventive and
progressive; the Indian is atamontal

other weapons, his moccasins and the
rest of his harness exactly, ao far as he

to lead ono astray. I venture to say that
Indians have sat thus for hours as, abso
lutely without intellectual as without
physical motion and with no deeper cog
itations than thoso of some meditative
snapping turtlo basking on a log.

MARRIAGE IN TURKEY.
The Nuptial I'tnwoiijr I KBfecteil Alto
gether Itj Proxy.
Marriage receives scarcely more at
tention among the Turks than birth or
death, and there is but little embarrass
ment from tho administrative formali
ties that precede and accompany this
solemn act in the West Thero are no
bans, no announcements, no registra
tions. A man obtains a wifo just as he
would buy a bouquet; but neither the
buyer nor the seller nor the intermediary
asks for a receipt' As it is forbidden a
man to enter the harom of another (oven
if he wero a near relative of the latter)
to see a young woman and talk to her,
there are no marriages for love,
and no engagements. Ono father meet?
another father, and says to him: "You
havo a son and 1 have a daughter. If
tho mother of your son knows my
daughter, let us strike a bargain, if she
does not know her, let them see each
other, and then let us close up tbo busi
ness." The conditions are discussed,
and dowry haggled over, thea all the
arrangements between the parents are
made, acd the yoang people introduced
to each other.
Let us add in passing, that among us
tho marriages that aro contracted in the
great capitals of Europe, especially ia
Paris, do not depart far from this pro
gramme. In France, however, a man ia
still allowed to behold the object for tbo
acquisition of 'which negotiations are ia
progress. In Turkey this is forbidden;
there marriage is a lottery indeed.
Turkish girls, are promised whea
they are very yonag, even at a teader
age when they are oaly three or four
years old. If the yonag bride shoald
happen to die before her marriage, or
be required for the Sultan's harem for
it may be premised that this is a case
that breaks all engagements, and U
esteemed as a great honor by parents
the intended husband is aot expected to
weep over what he loses, for he haa

reaches her twelfth or thirteeath year,
or somewhat later, her fomrteeath year,
she receives the nuptial bieasiag, aad
the husband can not see the face of his
wifo until after that ceremoay.
No woman, aot even the wife, takes
part ia the ademaity of marriage, which
is effected by proxy, delegated to aa

Tho site having been definitely set

the transportation of visitors between

Jackson Park is located on the lake

compare with it in tho easo with which
it can bo reached. The Cottage Grove

VraaidoBt Fish of tho llliaoU Ceatral

ha womld halo aat the fair all ha eaaM,
aad gave aa a rate af five ceate from tho
Lake Front to Jakaea Park, with
facilities for traaapartlaf Q,aaa people
aahoar. The committee thoaght this
asnsrod tbo almost exBectatioaa of
tha directors, aa aadar thia agraemoat
the Iiliaoia Ceatral caa tako
from the dtv to the fair for five
with ao atopa, ia eight miaates time at
the utmost A tramway or electric rail
way is, probably, aot accessary te carry
visitors to the fair. Thore haa
boca a fair where it has aot beta
aaryto take cars te its different parte
aa object which can not be aaid af aha
Chicago world's fair."
Transportation, while important, !
oae of the least of the difficulties which
are to bo met by the Colamblaa di
rectors. Eesido the all bat limltleaa
facilities which the Iiliaoia Central
road can offer, the South side cable
line company will prepare for tbo fair.
Superiateadeat Holmes said:
"Our company will make such im
provements as are necessary to carry
people to and from the fair. Just what
these are 1 am not prepared to aay.
There arc, perhaps, plans in contempla
tion, but until they are passed upon by
the board of directors there ia aotbiag
to be said about them."
With all these facilities that bare
boon mentioned, and the others that
caa very easily and inexpensively bo
developed, the question of transporta
tion to and from tho world's fair is easi
ly solved. In fact the question practi
cally solves itself.
Tho cable company has already a di
rect lino to Jackson Park, via Cottage
Grove avenue. It will be comparatively
easy and inexpensive to divert the State
street cablo line to the east thereby
giving another line to the world's fair
site. Beside this, the cross-towa care
can be so managed as to connect with tha
Cottage Grove avenue and State street
cable lines, all for a faro of five centa,
giving a most complete system of street
car service. Added to these facilities is
to be considered the so-called alley ele
vated railroad now in course of construc
tion upos tho South side. President Jtd
dard of the South-Side Rapid-Traaalt
Company says there is ao doubt that a
sufficient mileage of tbo "L" road will
be completed in twelve months, and
that plans will be arranged so as to land
passengers directly at tho park. "Oar
road," ho said, "will be capable of trans
porting 'JO, 000 persons per hour in each
direction. Our rate of fare, fixed by
ordinance, is five rents per passenger,
without regard to distance."
A recent Washington dispatch says:
The work of classification of the ex
hibits for the world's fair, which was
committed to Prof. U Brown Goode,
has been finished. In arranging the
classification 1'roL Goode has provided
for ton groups or departments, as fol

Each department is arranged in a
number of divisions. These divisioaa
are again subdivided. "The classifica

retary Butterworth. "in order that
there might be complete information
touching the character of exhibits that
would be received and that would bo
desired. The plans for buildiags are
being prepared, tbo classification
is now complete, tbo literature of

The judiciary committee submitted

In the Baranm case the committee over

case confirmed his ruling. Tho graad
lodge will act on both reports to-day.

ea Mrs. Sea by the sovereign grand
lodge aad the Daughters of Rebekah
gave herabaadsome diamond ornament
emblematic of the order. But the jewel
and the honor does not compensate for
the chagrin she feels at the action of
the graad lodge.
The finding in the Barnum ca.se wa a
great victory for the Illinois grand mas
ter. Ho was peremptorily depotod from
office by Grand Sire Underwood fr re
monstrating with the latter in regard to
oae of his decisions. Barnum had re
voked the charter of a Chicago ludgo
because it bad refused to comply with
oae of bis orders. The lodge appealed
to the graad sire and tho charter was
restored. Then the grand sir removed
Barnum from office. The judiciary com
mittee held that a graad master was su
preme in his Jurisdiction and that all
complainte muat pass through his hand
te the graad ledge.
Captaia-Geaeral Ellis, of the Patriarch
Militant by virtue of the decision, it
suspended from office. October 5 laM
he issued an order declaring himelJ
lieutenant-general and gonerallMiuio ol
the Patriarchs Militant by vlrtuo of a
decision of the graad lodgo limiting thr
office of lieutenant-general to three
years and providing for a nuceevior.
Grand Sire Underwood revoked the
order and suspended Ellis.
All of tho amendments which were
proposed to the constitution weru voted

whatever will bo mado.
