The Only Picture Ever Painted by a
President's Wife to be Present
ed to the Public.
It may not be known to cveiyonc that Mrs.
Benjamin Harrison is one of the hest of
American flower-painters. Since she has
occupied her position as lady of the White
House , hoivever , her public duties have large
ly prevented the exercise of her artistic genius ;
but in that period she has found leisure to
paint one of the loveliest representations of
flower-life that ever came Irom an artist's
brush , a magnificent group orchids on a
porcelain panel.'ith that broad and kindly
spirit which has marked her career , she has
presented this bingle production of her scant
leisure to the public , and DEMOUEST'S MAGA
ZINE has the honor of being the medium
through which this painting is offered to the
mothers , wives , and daughters of America , to
whom it is lovingly dedicated.
There is no taint of politics in it : it is simply
the tribute of a good woman's love for the
women of her nation , superbly expressed in

A Linden Tree of 1'ecullar
Form , the Ke-
sult of a Struggle for Life.
The determined and successful ef
forts that have been made to save fine
trees in Central park , New York , at
points were they are especially needed
have resulted in the production of
many vegetable curiosities. One of
the most interesting of theseis a
linden in the northern part of the
park. The tree stands on what ap
pears to be an artificial mound , at the
junction of a footpath with that portion
tion of the drive directly below the
Block house. The perils of youth
had evidently threatened at various
times to destroy the tree , for the trunk
.gives evidence of an early cleft But
the tree was of sturdy constitution ,
and three great limbs sprang from the
injured trunk , while a do en or more
small ones clustered about the three
great branches. The result is a trunk
fourteen or fifteen inches in diameter
at the ground , only fifteen or twenty
inches long , and swelling at the forks
to fully two feet in diameter. Mean
while the great roots clutch the mound
on which the tree stands as with the
grip of a great hand. Outwardly the
tree is a perfect cone of dense foliage ,

A STOLEN SERMON.
A Preacher Who Composed Ouo of Ueecli-
cr's Discourses in Six Hours.
Henry Ward Beecher once went in
search of a brief rest to a small fishing
village , where his appearance was ap
parently unknown. When Sunday
came around he went to the morning
services at the Congregational church
and was not a little astonished to hear
the preacher for the day , a very young
man rattle off one of his , Beecher's ,
best sermons as an original discourse.
At the conclusion of the service the
great preacher waited for a chat with
the young man. "Might I ask you
how long it took yon to compose the
sermon you preached to us this morn
ing ? " inquired its real author. 'Oh ,
about six or seven hours. " was the re
joinder. "You must be a very smart
young man , " said Beecher , "for it took
me just five days to write that self
same sermon. " After a careful but
unblushing scrutiny of the great pul
pit orator , the youth remarked : "I
guess you're Ward Beecher , then ? " A
grave nod was the only response.
Then the juvenile apostle put out his
hand , and , grasping that of his cele
brated listener , exclaimed : "Look
here , Mr. Beecher you just go on writ
ing sermons like that. As long as you
do I shall never be ashamed to preach

The lirst important service of The day
was the Sabbath school at 9 o'clock.
Nearly the entire congregation , old

They were divided into four depart
ments senior , intermediate , primary
and kindergarten. The two divisions
first named met in the pavillion , and
the others in separate tents. There
were also divisions for the Scandina
vians and Germans. The total enroll
ment was 881. It is the custom of the
denomination to make offerings at the
Sabbath school for foreign missions.
On this occasion the offerings were
$108.00 , enough , the presiding oillcer
said , to pay the faro of a minister who
is on his way to Argentine Republic

On Sunday a large crowd was upon
the ground. In the afternoon Elder
J. N. Loughborough spoke on the sub
ject of religious liberty. Ho said that
thirty-eight years ago he wrote a book
in which he asserted from the prophecy
of Revelation 13:11 18 that the United
States government wovld yet engage
in religious persecution. And ho hold
that the late action of congress in
passing a law with reference to the
closing of the World's fair on Sunday ,
and the decision of the supreme court
that this is a Christian nation , were in
exact fulfillment of what Seventh Day
Adventists had all these years been
piedicting. He then traced the his
tory of religious legislation in this
country from its founding until the
recent imprisonment of Seventh Day
Adventists in Tennessee for engaging
in their ordinary work on Sunday.
He ridiculed the idea of making a
show to the world of special reverence
for Sunday by closing the fair on that
day when thousands of men had
worked every Sunday in preparing the
buildings and thousands moro had
visited the fair every Sunday up to
the time of opening. It reminded him
of the little boy who was told to go
into the back yard to play , as it was
Sunday , and who responded "Isn't it
Sunday in the back yard ? "
The number of persons who camped
on the ground was 1,264. Nearly 100
were baptized. C. C. LEWIS.
