and a blow that would not under other
I circumstances have prostrated or slain ,
left Its victim lifeless ; until when Siarn-
t gar walked over the field , he counted
one hundred dead , two hundred dead ,
I three hundred dead , four hundred dead ,
I five hundred dead , six hundred dead-
all the work done by an
I ox-goad with an Iron prong at one

I The fame of this achievement by this
farmer with an awkward weapon of
war , spread abroad , and lionzed him.
until he was hoisted into the h1ghst
place of power , and became the third of
the mighty judges of Israel. So you ee
that Cincinnatus was not the only man
' lifted from plow to throne.
For what reason was this unpre'c-
dented and unparalleled vict ry of a
farmers ox-goad put Into this Bile ,
where there was no spare room f.r the
unimportant and the trivial ?
it was , first of all , to teach you , and
to teach me , and to teach all past ages
. since then , and to teach all ages to
come , that in the war for God , and
J against sin , we ought to put to the b'st
use the weapon we happen to have on
hand. Why did not Shamgar wait until
he could get a war charger , with neck
arched and back caparisoned , and
nostrils sniffing the battle afar oil' , or
until he could get war equipment , cr
could drill a regiment , and wheeling
them Into line , command them forward
to the charge ? To wait for that would
have been defeat and annihilation. So
. ' he takes the best weapon he coull lay
bold of , and that is an ox-goad. We are
called into the battle for the right , and
: against wrong , and many of us have not
just the kind of weapon we would pro-
fcr. It may not be a sword of argumeat
It may not be the spear of sharpthrust-
ing wit. It may not be the battering-
) tam of denunciation. But there s something -
; . thing we can do , and some forces we
J can wield. Do not wait for what you
have not , but use what you have. Per-
I ' imps you have not eloquence , but you

.i : :
to hcai the story , for It can never be
fully told on earth-perhaps some day
may be set apart for the rehearsal ,
while all heaven listens-the story of
how God blessed awkward and humble
instrumentalities. Many an evangelist
has come Into a town given up to
worldliness. The pastors say to the evan
gelist : "We are glad you have come.
but It is a hard field and we feel sorry
for you. The members of our churches
play progressive euchre , and go to the
theater , and bet at the horse races , and
gaiety and fashion have taken possession -
sion of the town. We have advertised
your meetings , but are not very hope-
ful. God bless you. " This evangelist
takes his place on platform or pulpit.
He never graduated at college , and
there are before him twenty graduates
of the best univerritles. He never took
one lesson in elocution , and there are
before him twenty trained orators.Many
of the ladies present are graduates of
the highest female seminaries , and one
slip in grammar or one mispronuncla-
tion will result In suppressed giggle.
Amid the general chill that pervades
the house , the unpretending evangelist
opens his Bible and takes for his. text :
"Lord , that my eyes may be opened. "
Opera glazses in the gailery curiously
scrutinize the speaker. He tells in a
plain ivay the story of the blind man ,
tells two or three touching anecdotes
and the general chill gives way before
a strange warmth. A classical hearer
who took the first honor at Yale , and
who is a prince of proprietles , finds his
spectacles becoming dim with a moisture -
ure suggestive of tears. A worldly
mother who has been bringing up her
sons and daughters in utter godlessness -
ness , puts her handkerchief to her eyes
and begins to weep. Highly educated
men who came to criticize and pick to
pieces , and find fault , bow on their gold-
headed canes. What is that
sound from under the gallery -
lery ? It is a sob , and sobs are
catching ; and all along the wall , and all
up and down the audience there is deep
emotion , so that when at the close of
the service anxious souls are Invited to
especial seats , or the inquiry room , they
come up by scores , and kneel and repent -
pent , and rise up pardoned ; the whole
town Is shaken , and places of evil
amusement are sparsely attended , and
rum holes lose their patrons , and the
churches are thronged , and the whole
community is cleansed , and elevated ,
and rejoiced. What power did the evangelist -
gelist bring to bear to capture that
town for righteousness ? Not one brilliant -
liant epigram did he utter. Not one
graceful gesture 'did he make. Not one
rhetorical climax did he pile up.
But there was something about
him that people had not taken
In the estimate when they prophesied
the f Ilureof that work. They had not
taken into calculation the omnipotence
of the Holy Ghost. It was not the flash
of a Damascus blade. It was God , before -
fore and behind , and all around the
ox-goad. When people say that crime
will triumph , and the world will never
be converted because of the seeming insufficiency -
sufficiency of the means employed , they
count the six hundred armed Phills-
tines on one side , and Shamgar , the
farmer , awkwardly equipped , on the
other side ; not realizing that the chariots -
riots of God are twenty thousand , and
that all heaven , cherubic , seraphic ,
archangelic , Deific , Is on what otherwise
would be the weak side. Napoleon , the
author of the saying. "God is on the
side of the heaviest artillery , " lived to
find out his mistake ; for at Waterloo
the one hundred and sixty guns of the
English overcame the two hundred and
fifty guns of the French. God is on
the side of the right , and one man in
the right will eventually be found
stronger thun six hundred men In the
wrong. in all estimates of any kind of
Christian work , do not make the mistake -
take every day made of leaving out the
Head of the Universe.
Again , my subject springs upon us
the thought that in God's service it is
best to use weapons that are particularly -
larly suited to us. Shamgar had , like
many of us , been brought up on a farm.
He knew nothing about javelins , and
bucklers , and helmets , and breastplates
and greaves of brass and catapults , and
ballistae , and iron scythes fastened to
the axles of chariots. But he was familiar -
miliar with th& flail of the threshing
floor , and knew how to pound with that ;
and the ax of the woods , and knew
how to hew with that ; and the oxgoad of
the plowman , and knew how to thrust
with that. And you and I will do best
to use those means that we can best
nandle ; those weapons with which we
can make the most execution. Some in
God's service will do best with the pen ;
some with the voice ; some by extemporaneous -
poraneous speech for they have
the whole vocabulary of the English
language half way between their brain
and tongue ; and others will do best I
with manuscript spread out before
them. Some will serve God by the
plow , raising wheat and corn and giv-
lug liberally of what they sell to chuh-
en and missions ; some as merchants ,
and out of their profits will dedicate a
tenth to the Lord ; some as physicians ,
prescribing for the world's ailments ;
and some as attorneys , defending innocence -
nocence , and obtaining rights that otherwise -
erwise would not be recognized ; and
some as sailors , helping bridge the seas ;
and some as teachers and pastors. The
kingdom of God Is dreadfully retarder ]
by co many of us attempting to do that
which we cannot do ; reaching up far
broadsword or falchion , or bayonet , or
scimeter , or Enfield rifle or Paixhan's
gun , while we ought to be content with
an ox-goad. I thank God that there are
tens of thousands of Christians whom
you never heard of , and never vrill hear
of until you see them in the high placeS
of heaven , who are now in a quiet way
in homes , and schoolhouses , and in
praying circles , and by sick beds , and
up dark alleys saythg the saving word ,
and doing the saving deed ; the a.ggre-
gation of their work overpowering the
most ambitious statistics. In the grand
review of heaven , when the regiments
pass the Lord of Hosts , there will be I
whole regiments of nurses , and Sabbath I
school teachers , and tract distributors , I
and unpretending workers , before
whom , as they pass , the kings and
queens of God and the Lamb will lift
flashing coronet , and bow down in recognition -
cognition and reverence. The most of
the Christian work for the world's re-
elamatfon and salvation will be done
by people of one talent and two talents ,

versal victory is coming , unless the B-
ble be a fabrication , and eternity a
myth , and the chariots of God are un-
wheeled on the golden streets , and the

dead on the plains of heaven. 'With us ,

A SNAKE THIEF.
110w ft licptllo Stole the Milk f'om
Fine Jersey Cow.
W. L. Hewey , living up In the Cross
Lake country , has a fine Jersey cow ,
which usually keeps the family supplied -
plied with an abundance of milk , says
a Shreveport ( La. ) paper. On Monday
last Hewey noticed a falling off in the
milk supply and for every day thereafter -
after there has been a steady diminu-
tion. Thinking that perhaps the pasturage -
turage did not furnish sufficient nourishment -
ishment for the cow , Hewey began to
give her an extra quantity of food at
night , but in vain. Every evening she
returned to the pen with an empty bag.
At last Hewey came to the conclusion
that some negro in the neighborhood
must be in the habit of milking the
cow before she left the pasture ; so ho
set about discovering the guilty party.
Yesterday his investigations were rewarded -
warded , the thief proving to be a singular -
lar one , indeed. In the middle of the
afternoon Hewey went into the pasture -
ture , taking his stand behind a big oak
tree whence he could keep an eye on
the cow without being himself ob-
served. For a long time there seemed
no chance of solving the mystery , as no
one appeared in the pasture. Finally
Hewey was about to give up the search
as a bad job , and drive the cow to the
pen , when he saw a big black-and-
white-pied snajte glide out from the
thicket behind him and make Its way
acrcss the pasture to the. Jersey. Following -
lowing after as rapidly as he could ,
what was his astonishment to behold
the snake wrap itself around the Jer-
sey's hind legs , holding them hard and
fast , and then grasp hold of the bag ,
sucking away at the teats like a hungry -
gry calf. Hewey is a new man to this
section , and this singular conduct on
the part of a reptile surprised him beyond -
yond measure. Since consulting with
his neighbors , however , he has ascer-
tamed that the snake , called a "cow-
sucker , " is a very common variety ,
causing much loss among cattle-raisers
and milk men in this section.

Cutting floes' Ears.
Itwasprobably firstintroduced when
bulldog lighting became a fashionable
amusement , and the earilaps were almost -
most totally removed to prevent them
from being torn and mangled by contending -
tending dogs-for the same reason , in
fact , as was the combs of fighting
cocks and the hair cropped close from
the heads of pugilists. But this dis-
I creditable pastime is now abolished ; so
there is no occasion for ear cropping ,
even in the case of bulldogs , and certainly -
tainly no valid excuse can be offered
for this exhibition of depraved taste
with regard to other breeds of dogs ,
and especially terriers-animals which ,

A Privileged Person.
Princess Mathilde is one of the few
Catholics who are entitled to eat meat
during Lent by a special decree of the
pope. This dispensation was accorded
to her under peculiar circumstances.
When the queen of Westphalia. the
mother of Princess Mathide , paid a
visit to Pope Pius IX , at the vatican ,
the pope had a special "bull" drawn
out for benefit , in memory of her visit ,
dispensing her from fasting during the
whole of her lifetime. "Your holiness
will pardon me , " said the queen , "but
I am entitled to eat meat at all times ,
even without your holiness' permission ,
for I am a Protestant.Vell , then , I
will transfer the dispensation to your
daughter Mathilde. " This was done ,
and the order remains in force to the
present day- . Paris Debats.

A Peculiar Glass.
The announcement made recently of
a German method of producing glass
which will transmit- light freely , but
no heat , is founded upon the following
statement of details , presumably from
the source of operatious : A plate of
this material ; one-fourteenth of an inch
thick , containing 2.8 per cent of iron
in the form described as ferrous chlo-
ride. allowed only 4.6 per cent of radiant -
ant heat to pass through it , while another -
other plate of equal thickness , and
containing quite as much iron as ferric
chloride , permitted 11. 2 to pass. The
chemical distinction is exceedingly
small , but the effect is very marked.
Using oxide instead of chloride , and
again having it in a ferrous condition ,
1 per cent produced a glass having a
faint blue tinge , but even more impervious -
vious to heat than the other sample.
A layer .332 inch in thickness allowed
only 0.4 per cent of a bat's wing gas

mit 12 per cent of heat from sunlight ,

refuses to do so , they put him in a cistern -

turn on a stream of water. This
