How thrilling it is to gazo on the
face of a man who is aroused cither by
denunciation of evil or dofonso of that
which is right. His very face will ap
pear transformed; out of it will have
disappeared all traces of pettiness,
nnd as his head is thrown back nnd
his eyes flash, tho best that is in him
will shine forth. Thcso supremo mo
ments thould bo cherished. They
throw things into their right propor
tions; when it seems to tho aroused one
that even life itself is a small matter in
comparison with tho truth that must
be spoken. Personal ease and comfort
aro despised until tho tonguo has ut
tered tho words that aro iuspircd by a
released nature Tho important things
at such moments is scon to bo, that tho
thing to bo dono, must bo dona; no
matter who the individual mav bo who
doos it; but that tho one who is aroused
to do, must do or bo false to tho great
est that is in him. And to that aroused
life tho truth comes homo that failure
to do and to dare, may mean that tho
daring will novor bo dono; for no two
human beings follow exactly tho samo
lines of life to meet tho same oppor
tunities. A call to a task is therefore
found to po n solemn thing that tests
and sifts down to .small limits thoso
whose tasks aro done 111 thu dread fear
of their never returning if left undone.
Thrilling is it to hoc a nature on Hi e.
The membors of tho body must sutler
if needs be till thu work is finished.
Tho feet must run and not bo weary,
thu body labor mid not rebel, the brain
act and not falter; yet neither feet,
nor body nor brain have any interest
in tl.o duty; they urn muruly servants
who must MilTcr till all is done by thu
Individual who situ in control of brain
and all lessor oigaiis.
Multiply all this many million times
anil then yield yourself to the wonder
that tills the soul when , whole nation
thrills and rises in infinite majesty.
Tho onward sweep of thu tempest, tho
resistless power of the tido, the stu
pendous motion of an earthquake, aro
Utiles besido it; for this is a motion
that is alive, that has brain, that has
purpose. A wholo peoplo aroused to
action is a spectacle of awo. When by
a species of rovolatlon a million
minds think alike, and movo forward
to dischargo tho task that is beforo
thorn, individually and collectively,
the sublimity of tho sight transcends
luliniloly tho sublimost that liunlmato
nature over sot beforo human tyes.
Whore thoro have boon trilling or oven
important differences boforo, thoro will
bo ono vast unity. In tho presence of
the national duty, a leveling down of
pettiness will be accompanied by n
leveling up of purpose. Strangely like
a man in this body of men and of
mind. Deep in thojiimtlouul con
Hcioivnoss is it understood that lovo of
ease and the getting of gain in untram
incled peace aro moro dust in the hal
ation .vlien weighed against a national
du y. Like the man, a nation awake
is foi end onward by its Innor convic
tion of what U right anil just; and tho
consequences it must leave to the
Ai biter of National fates, from whom
coiiictlt national inspiration and from
who-u heart of mercy comes Uiroot tho
feeling of mercy and commiseration
that possesses thu breasts of men,
womou and children at till liouient of
i.ntiiM it 1 n n-it g. And In 'Hit' th.iiK
mil tin. 1 tin tli(itiaiitl hunts it.

We know deep in our national heart,
thill now Is the moment to alio v to the
disintctestcil that justice is our meat
and our drink and mercy to the weak
our daily thank-offering to God, who
bus btought us out of our own weak
ness into strength. Wo know that op
portunities and calls conn; to nations
us they do to men, and that wise is the
nation that knowoth the day of its vis
itation. And much as innocent mem
bers suffer when a man is aroused, wo
know that many who now live must
die for an Idea, mi inspiration, a nu
ll oiial purpose, jet tho cost is cheap in
cHP'tniiMjii with the deep national
sliiinn- of te naming silent when utter
ance would save, and indolent when
action would bless.

In the ovont of war it will cost $202
to firo an 8-inch riflo, 1480 for a 10-inch
1888 for a 12-inch nnd 11,852 for a 10

of war with Spain would no doubt
mako sovoral holes in tho Spanish na
val and morcantilo marine, and sond
numerous "Dons" to tho "happy hunt

leave a terrible big holo in the treasury
of Uncle Sam.
Bro. Young, of the Stockton Now.9,
strikes a warlike attitude nnd says:
"Polish up my rusty saber, dig me up
my blunderbuss. I'll forsako the field
of labor, and I'll fight theSpanish cuss.
I'll have none of moderation, for my
spirit's soroly tried. Naught will soothe
my perturbation, but a pioco of Spanish

Clear tho track! Don't stop tho way!

A Missouri absconder recently lied to
Kansas. At Topoka ho noticed a man
looking strnngoly at him and fled to
Oswego. Tho next day ho saw that
tho samo old white haired gentleman
was in town. Tho absconder skipped
to (Jardon City. Thoro again wns the
samo old whito haired gentleman.
Again tho thief jumped across tho f-tato
arriving nt Fort Scott. Again he saw
the old white haired man. Ho re
solved to surrender, and ho walked up
to his pursuer nnd said: "Mr. Pinker
Ion, I surrender." "Pinkerton!" ox
claimed tho old man, "I'm John Sea
ton, candidate for governor. Are 'you
liable to bo on tho state delegation."

Wherever tho favorite comedian,
John Dillon, is announced to appear
ho is always the subject, of much dis
cussion. Many aro tho stotles told,
with more or lesj truth, of John aud
his eccentricities when tho gonial com
edian had looked doop into tho flowing
bowl. Tho clay pipo through the key
hole tho boot ho let down from the
window to a sympathizing friend by
the aid of a cord mado from tho bed

pawned himself to tho liquor dealer
all theso and many others aro told.
And yet the great heart of tho public
was always ready to forgive, and when
"KIchard was himsolf again." what
crowds ho drew. Seven years havo
passed since Dr. Keeley performed his
miraculous cure, and bIiico that happy
day John Dillon has never disappoint
ed an audience. He is in splendid
health and spirits; is delighted with his
new part and with tho success of his
now play, and will surely amuso all

The good ship Maine at anchor lay,

Tho watch was pacing the deck so they

"eternal doom. Hill Anthony to the
captain groped his wny, salatrd and
said, "Excuso'jne, sir, but I hnvotosay
the ship's blowcd up and is sinking in
Havana bay." No lime for the sailors
to shed a tear, to think of home nnd
I offer a prayer; but tho noble crow had
gone to sleep in the inky waters of the
treacherous deep. Some lie beneath
tho rolling waves while others sleep in
foreign graves. Hut few are left of
that gallant band, to return to home
and native laud. A nation mourns for
bravo men gone, there's a vacant clinir
in many a home; a mother weeps for
her darling boy, and a father' heart is

It it true wisdom for every
body to take a thorough course of
Swift's Specific just at this season
of tho year. The blood is sluggish
and impoverished, aud the system
is full of impurities which should
be eliminated. In addition to
thoroughly oleansing the blood,
and toning up the system so as to
avoid Iobs of appetite and a gen
eral run-down feeling in the
spring, S. S. S. so strengthens and
builds up as to fortify against tho
many forms of dangerous illnosB
thtvt abound during tho hot sum-
,mor season, it la u very small
mutter to tako this precaution but
it insures health aud strength all
summer. Swift's Specific
is far ahead of all other remedies
fur this purpose It is a real
blood remedy which promptly
purifies the blood and thoroughly
renovates the entire By stem, tones
and strengthens the stomach, and
renews the appetite. It is the
only safe tonic, being purely vege
table, and the only blood remedy
guaranteed to contain no arsenic,
sulphur, mercury, potash or other
mineral substance, which is of so
much importance to all who know
tho injurious effects of theso drugs.
Nature should bo assisted by na
ture's remedy, S. S. S. Take
S. S. S. and bo well all summor.
