Daniel, ii. 32. He said:
Antiochus Epiphanes, the old sinner,
came down three times with his army
to desolate the Israelites, advancing
one time with 102 trained elephants,
swinging their trunks this way and
that, and 02,000 infantry and 6,000 cav
alry troops and they were driven back.
Then, the second time, he advanced
with 70,000 armed men and had been
again defeated. Hut the third time he
laid successful siege until the navy of
Home came in with the flash of their
long banks of oars and demanded that
the siege be lifted. And Antiochus
Epiphanes said he wanted time to con
sult with his friends about it, and Po
pilius, one of the Roman ambasbadors,
took a staff and made a circle on the
ground around Antiochus Epiphanes,
ami compelled him to decide before ho
came out of that circle; whereupon he
lifUil the siege. Some of the Hebrews
had submitted to the invader, but some
of tlym resisted valorously, as did
Eluaztr when he had swine's flesh
forced into his mouth, spit it out, al
tlioughhc knew lie must die for it, and
did die 'or it; and others, as my text
says, did vploits.
An cxplo i would define to bo a he
roic act, a btvo feat, a great achieve
ment. "Well," you say, "I admire
wich things, hit. there is no chance for
me; mine is a sort. f hnimlrnm Iif If
I had an Antiochus Epiphaues to light, I
also could do exploit." You are right,
so far as great wars are concerned.
There will probablv bo no opportunity
to distinguish 3'oursclf in battle. The
most of the brigadier-generals of this
country would never have been heard
of had it not been for the war.
Neither will you probably become a
great inventor. Nineteen hundred and
ninety-nine out of every two thousand
inventions found In tho patent office at
Washington never yielded their authors
enough money to pay for the expenses
of securing the patent. So you will
probably never be a Morse or an Edi
son or a Humphrey Davy or an Kit
Whitney. There is not much probabil
ity that you will be the one out of the
hundred who achievo extraordinary
success In commercial or legal or medi
cal or literary spheres. What then?
Tan you have no opportunity to do ex
ploits? I am going to show that there
are three opportunities open that are
grand, thrilling, far-reaching, stupend
ous and overwhelming. They are be
fore you now. In one, if not all three
f them, you may do exploits. The
three greatest things on earth to do are
to save a man, or save a woman, or save
a child. During the course of his life
almost every man gets into an exigency,
is caught between two lires, is ground
between two millstones, sits on the
etlge of some precipice, or in some other
way comes near demolition. It may be
a financial, or a moral, or a domestic,
or a social, or a political exigency.
You sometimes see it in courtrooms.
A young man has got into bad company
and he has offended the law, and he is
arraigned. All blushing and confused,
he is in the presence of judge and jury
and lawyers. He can be sent right on
in the wrong direction. He is feeling
isgraced, and he is almost desperate.
T.iet the district attorney overhaul him
as though he were an old offender; let
tho ablest attorneys at the bar refuse
to say a word for him, because he can
not alTord a considerable fee; let the
judge give no opportunity for present
ing the mitigating circumstances hurry
no the case, and hustle him up to Au
burn or Sing Sing. If ho lives seventy
years, for seventy years he will be a
criminal, and each decade of his life
will be blacker than its predecessor.
Why doesn't his father come and help
him? His father is dead. Why doesn't
his mother come and help him? She is
dead. Where are all the ameliorating
and salutary influences of society?
They do not touch him. Why did not
some one long ago in the case under
stand there was an opportunity for tho
exploit which would be famous in
Heaven a quarter of a million years
after earth has become scattered ashes
in the last whirlwind? Why did not
the district attorney Uke that young
man into his private oftico and say:
"My son, I see that you arc the victim
of circumstances. This is your first
crime. You arc sorry. I will bring the
person you wronged into your presence
and you will apologize and make all
the reparation you can and I will give
you another chance."
Or that young man is presented in
the court room and ho has no friends
present and tho judge says: "Who is
vour counsel?" And he answers: "I
have none." And the judge says:
"Who will take thisyoung man's case?"
And there is a dead halt and no one of
fers, and after a while the judge turns
to some attorney who never had a good
case in nil his life, and never will, and
whose advocacy would be enough to
secure the condemnation of innocence
itself. And the professional incompe
tent crawls up beside the prisoner
helplessness to rescue despair, when
there ought to be a struggle among all
the best men of the profession as to
who should have the honor of trying to
help that unfortunate.
So there aro commercial exigencies.
A very late spring obliterates the de
mand for spring overcoats and spring
hats and spring apparel of all sorts.
Hundreds of thousands of people say:
"It seems we nre going to have no
spring and we shall go straight out of
winter into warm weather, and we can
get along without the usual spring at
tire." Or there is no autumn weather,
the heat plunging into the cold, and
the usual clothing which is a compro
mise between summer and winter Is
not required. It makes a difference in
the sale of millions and millions of dol
lars of goods, and some over sanguine
young merchant is caught with a vast
amount of unsalable goods that will
never be salable again at prices ruin
ously reduced. The young merchant
with a somewhat limited capital is in
What shall the old merchants do as
thev see the 3oung man in this awful
crisis? Kub their liands and laugh and
say: 'Good for him. He might have

Kf Jneiness to open his store so near to

flag in the window: "How much is bid
for these out of fashion spring over
coats and spring hats, or fall clothing
out of date? What do I hear in the
way of a bid?" "Four dollars." "Ab
Eurd. 1 can not take that bid of $4
apiece. Why, these coats when first
put upon the market were offered at
515 each, aud now I am offered only S4.
Is that all? Five dollars, do I hear?
Going at that! Gone at S5," and he
takes the whole lot The young mer
chant goes home that night and says to
bis wife: "Well. Mary, we will have to
move out of this house and sell our
piano. 1 hat old merchant that has had
an evil eye on me ever since I started

will have it rejuvenated and next year

young merchant who found that he
had miscalculated in lavincr in inn
jpany goods of one kind fa standing be
hind the counter, feeling very blue,
and, thinking how his young wife will
have to be put in a plainer house than
she ever expected to live in, or go to a
third-rate boarding house. An old
merchaat comes in and says: "Well,
Joe, this has been a hard season for
young merchants, and this prolonged
'cool weather has put many in the
doldrums, and I have been thinking of
you a good deal of late, for just after I
started in business I once got into the
same, scrape. ISow, 11 tnerc is any
thing I can do to help you out I will
gladly do it Hotter just put those
goods out of sight for the present, and
next season we will plan something
about them. I will help you to some
goods that you can sell for me on com
mission, and I will go down to one of
the wholesale houses and tell them
that I know you and will back you up,
and if 3011 want a few dollars to bridge
over the present I can let you have
them. He as economical as you can,
kerp a stiff upper lip, and remember
that you have two friends, God and
myself. Good morning!" The old mer
chant goes awaj and the young man
goes behind his desk, and the tears roll
down his cheeks. It is the first time he
has cried. Disaster made him mad at
everything, and mad at man and mad at
God. Hut this kindness melts him, and
the tears seem to relieve his brain, and
his spirits rise from 10 below 7.cro to SO
In the shade, and he comes out of the
There sometimes comes exigencies in
the life of a woman. One morning a
few years ago I saw in tlie newspaper
that there was a young woman In New
York, whose pocketbook containing
SI7.:'.:t hail been stolen, and she had
been left without a penny at the be
ginning of winter, in a strange city,
and no work. And although she was
a stranger, I did not allow the nine
o'clock mail to leave the lamp post on
our corner without carrying the S37..TS;
and the case was proved genuine.
When such a case comes under 3'our
observation how do 3011 treat it? "(Jet
out of 1113' w:i3', we have no room in our
establishment for any more hands. I
don't believe in women 11113' wuy; they
aro a hi7.y, idle, worthless set .John,
please show this person out of the
door." Or do you compliment her per
sonal appearance and say things to her
which if an3' man said to your sister or
daughter you would kill him on the
spot? That is one way, and it is tried
every da3 in the large cities, and man3'
of those who advertise for female
liands in factories, and for gov
ernesses in families, have proved
themselves iintit to be in any
placo outside of hell. Hut there is
another way, and I saw It one day in
the Methodist book concern 'in New
York, where a yoimr woman applied
for work and the gentleman in tone and
manner said in substance: "M3'
daughter, we employ women here, but
I do not know of any varaut place in
our department You hail better in
quire at such and such a filacc, and I
hope 3011 will be successful m getting
something to do. Here is 1113- name ami
tell them I sent you." The cmWrasscd
and humiliated woman seemed u give
way to Christian confidence. she
started out with a hopeful look tVat I
think must have won for her a plate in
which to earn her bread. I rau,er
think that considerate and Christen
gentleman saved a woman.
Hut gooil men and good women are
not in that kind of business. Alas for
that poor thing! Nothing but thread of 1
that sewing girl's needlo held her, and
the thread broke.
I have heard men tell in public dis
course what a man is; but what is a
woman? Until some one shall give a
lictter definition 1 will tell you what
woman is. Direct from God, a sacred
and delicate gift, with affectious so
great that no measuring line short of
that of the infinite God can tell their
bound. Fashioned to refine aud soothe
and lift and irradiate home and society
and the world. Of such value that no
one can appreciate it, unless his mother
lived long enough to let him under
stand it, or who in some great crisis
of life, when all else failed him,
had a wife to reinforce him with a faith
in God that nothing could disturb.
Speak out, ye cradles, and tell of the
feet that rocked you and the anxious
faces that hovered you! Hut as the
geographers tcf 1 us that the depths of
the sea correspond with the heights of
the mountains, 1 have to tell 3011 that
a good womanhood is not higher up
than bad womanhood is deep down.
The grander the palace, the more aw
ful the conflagration that destroys it
Now I should not wonder if you trem
bled a little with nsenseof rcspo.sibility
when I sa3 there is hnrdry a person iu
this house but may have an opportunity
to save a woman.
If, for instance, you find a woman in
fiuancial distress and breaking down
in health and spirits trying to support
her children, now that her husband is
dead or an invalid, doing that very im
portant and honorable work but which
Is little appreciated keeping a board
ing house, busy yourselves in trying to
get her more patrons, and tell her
of divine sympathy. Yea, if you see a
woman favored in- fortuuc and with all
kindly surroundings, finding in the
hollow flatteries of the world her chief
regalement living for herself and
for time as if there were no eternity,
strive to bring her into tho king
dom of God, as did the other day a Sab
bath school teacher who was the means
of the conversion of the daughter of a
man of immense wealth, and the
daughter resolved to join tho church,
and she went home nnd said: "Father,
I am going to -join the church, and I
want 3ou to come." "O, no," he said.
"I never go to church." "Well," said
thir daughter, "if f were going to be
married would 3ou not go to see me
married?" And he said, "O, yes,"
'"Well, said she, "this is of more ira
porttnee than that" So he went and
has gone ever since, and loves to go.
There is another little exploit you
can do, and that is to save a child. A
child docs not seem to'amount to much.
It is nearh a year old before it can
walk at alL For the first year and a
half it cannot speak a word. For the
first ten 3ears it would starve if it had
to earn its own" food. For the first fif
teen 3ears its opinion on any subject is
absolutely valueless. xnd then there
are so many of them. My! what lots
of children! And some people have
contempt for children. They are good
fornothing but to wear out the carpets
and break things and keep you awake
nights crying. Well, your estimate of
a child is quite different from that
mother's estimate who lost her child
this summer. They took it to the salt
air of the seashore and to the tonic air
of the mountains, but no help came,
and the brief paragraph of its life is
ended. Suppose that life could be re
stored by purchase, how much would
that berjaved mother give? I am glad
that thei arc those who know some
thing of the value of a child. Its pos
sibilities! are tremendous. What will
those hajds yet do? Where will those
feet yet ralk?
Come, phronologistx, and calculate
the decates on decades, the centuries
on centutes, of its lifetime. O, to save
a child! Am I not right in putting that
among tie great exploits? But what
arc yon giiog to do with those children
who are worse off than if their fathers
and mothers had died the day they
were bori? There arc tens of thou
sands of luch. Their parentage was
against thim. Their name is against
them. Tlf structure of their skulls
against thim. Their nerves and mus
cles contaminated by the inebriety or
dissoluteness of their parents; they aro
practically at their birth laid out on a
plank in the middle of the Atlantic
ocean, in in equinoctial gale, and told to
make for shore. What to do with them
is the quettion often asked. There is
another question quite as pertinent
and that Is what they are going to do
with us? They will, ten or eleven
years from now, have as many votes as
the same number of well born children.
and they will hand this land over to
anarchy and political damnation just
as sure as vc neglect thern, Suppose
we each one of us save a boy or save a

On the English coast there was a
wild storm, and a wreck in the offing,
and the cry was: "Man the lifeboat!"
Hut Harry, the usual leader of the
sailors' crew, was not to be found, and
they went without him, and brought
back all the shipwrecked people but
one. My this time Harry, the leader of
the crew, appeared and said: "Why did
you leave tliatfme?" The answer was:
"He could not help himself at all, and
we could not get him into the boat"
"Man the lifeloat!" shouted Harry,
"and we will go for that one." "No,"
said hit. aged mother, standing 1)3', "you
must not go, I lost your father in a
storm like this, anil your brother Will
went off six years ago, anil I have not
heard a word from Will since he left,
and I don't know where he is, poor
Will, and I cannot let 3'ou also go, for
I am old and dependent on you." His
reply was: "Mother, I must go and
save that one man, and if I am lost,
God will take care of you in your old
days." The life Iniat put out, and after
an awful struggle with the sea they
picked the poor fellow out of the rig
ging just in time to save his life, and
started for the shore. And as they
came within speaking distance Harry
cried out: "We saved him, and tell
mother it was brother Will."
How shall we get rcad3' for one or all
of thess three exploits? Wo shall make
a dead failure if in our own strength
we tr3' to save a man or woman or child.
But my text suggests where wo are to
get equipment "The people that do
know their God shall be strong and do
exploits." And while 3011 are saving
strangers you ma3 save some of 3our
O. yes, my friend, let us start out to
save someone for time and ' cternit y,
some man, some woman, some child.
And who knows but it may, directly or
indirectly, be the salvation of one of
our own kindred, and that will be an
exploit worthy of celebration when the
world itself is shipwrecked, and the sun
has gone tint like a spark from a smit
ten anvil, anil all the stars are dead!
DUTIES OF A CHAPERON.
An Inntit nt ion Alitmt Which Thrrn la a

The chaperon is almost universal'
recognized as an indispensable feature
of social life. That there is a great
deal of humbug about the institution
is not to lie doubted, nor is it often de
nied, for it is forever receiving addi
tional proof. With nice girls as her
charges,, it is not to be supposed that
the chaperon has a particular arduous
task. A willful girl can circumvent
her chaperon whonever she wishes to
enjo3 more liberty than the modern
duenna is willing to grant All chaper
ons are not equally wortli3' of being
intrusted with the care of a young girl
There is the frivolous, flirtatious young
married woman, who rejoices in her
husband's absence as an opportunit3 to

posed to ,e willing to retire when she
married iian older than herself, and
presumably jealous of his wife. Hut
the last person in the world fitted for
faithfully tWharging the duties of the
chaperon's responsible otliee is tho
woman who fc no longer young, be she
wife or widow, and who. crazy for the
attentions of voung men, knows of no
other way to attract them to herself
than to pretend ! chaperon a partv of
bright and interesting girls. The 3011115
ladles attract the gentlemen, and the
chaperon makes off with them herself.
She inveigles young and cas3-going
men into all sorts of iriiilopcna forfeits
and little bets on the outcome of games
of billiards or lawn tennis. And
whether the bets lw payable in candy
or champagne, she sees that they aro
paid to tho uttermost farthing. Woo

It Is sometimes considered verystnart
to outwit the chaperon. Once in a
while a chaperon will le found rtaiJv
and willing to help a wild girl to m
wit her mother. It is a popular thin
to laugh at the severity of parental eon-
trol and to mock at its restrictions but
the girl who will willingly enter into a
conspiracy to deceive her loving, self
sacrificing, although too-exacting
mother, is not worthy of respect If
she could but know just what the very
3oung men who take advantage of her
willingness to deceive her parents
really think of her, she might well hesi
tate before giving them additional
cause to think lightly of her. Hut what
shall lie said of the chaperon who takes
the young girl under her "protection,"
(heaven save the mark) giving express
promise to the mother that she will
t ake her place while with the girl, and
then deliberately make opportunities
for the girl to do just what the umber
had forbidden, even planning tbe lie
that is to still further wrong tfce un
suspecting parent? A chaperon that
will take a young man for a dcruray
and with her charge depart norc.nally
for a walk, but really for a row with
an objectionable young man 'for the
fourth party, returning to the, m.ther's
side without him. is an untrustworthy
woman. There is this fact that all
young girls should remember when
they are intimate with married women;
they need not be surprised :f. when
any trouble comes, any little breeze,
any misunderstanding, to have the
married woman slide out of all in the
roost nonchalant manner in the world,
leaving the young girl as a scapegoat
and one on whom the discredit most
certainly will falL It's so every tune.

Chess or cheat (bromu. s(taUnus) is
well known as a pernicious weed of
wheat fields. It was probably brought
V this country with wheat seed. It is
ri tbless as a forage plant The com
mon observation of farmers that a
wheat field contains more chess than
wheat and that wheat has turned into
chess is entirely without foundation.
Wheat will produce nothing else but
wheat, chess nothing but chess. If one
finds an abundance of ches in his field
it is either lecause his ground was well
stocked with seed or he sowed it with

can turn into chess. His transition
stages show that in one specimen of
cheat the chaff is partial removed,
while the thin! is an imperfect ker
nel of barlc3 with part of the chaff
removed. Some 3ear ago Dr. Heal, of
Lansing, Mich., made some exjieri
ments to settle this question. From
wheat he was never able to get any
thing else but wheat. The only wai to
destroy the weed is not to allow it to
wed if it is in 3our meadow. A projH-r
rotation with corn will remove it, since
it is an annual or winter at.nual. In
sowing wheat use 011I3' clean seed.

farmer has been warned against too
free use of the pork barrel over and

true that our pork eaters are as he;iltli3
and long lived as our beef eaters are, it
is nevertheless true that a steady pork
diet is not the best diet If we were to
le asked to la3 down general rules for
healthful methods of living on the
farm we should sa3: First,.a good, com
fortable house with large, air3 rooms;
a strict regard for cleanliness about the
premises, that is that all decaying mat
ter should be scrupulously removed
from any location that is near the
house; givxi drainage; frequent bath

ments in the house and out of it as pos
