Ilovr Angelina Sornphlna Was Honored
Molllc and Trottie were In such a
state of mind ! Here was the carriage
almost at the station , and the awful
discovery had just been made that
Angelina Seraphlna had been left at
home. Each little girl had thought
that the other had put Mistress An
gelina in mamma's big trunk , and they
thought thejr could not go for the sum
mer vacation with papa and mamma
without taking Angelina Seraphina
along , too. Then papa came to the res
cue. Alfred could drive back home ,
V after leaving them all at the station , 6
' and very likely he could get back with
her ladyship before the train left Seaway
away from the station -whirled the spir
ited pair of horses , with the empty ,
open carriage , and after it gazed anx
iously two very troubled little faces. At
home Norah had found the dolly al
most as soon as the family .had driven
away , and when she saw Alfred driv
ing furiously up the street she knew
what he was after. She met him at
the curbstone with Angelina Sera
phina , who was placed in state upon
the rear cushion , with the dark broad
cloth carriage robe drawn up carefully
over her knees. And thus she went
dashing down the street , with Norah of
laughing upon the doorstep. That
morning the whole city had turned out
to see the big procession that was to
escort the governor of the state , who
was passing through the city. Alfred
had avoided the crowd on his first trip ,
but the time was short now , and so he
resolved to take the chance of getting
safely through the crowd by a short
cut. Alas ! When almost in sight of
the station , he came down a side street
full upon the procession that was pass
ing along the main thoroughfare , the
sides of which were lined with people
hurrying along to keep up with the car
riages. The chief marshal , his aids ,
and two splendid brass bands had just
\ passed , when Alfred saw a bit of an
opening between the last of the musi
cians and the prancing horses that to
drew the governor-elect. Time was
precious. Mollie and Trottie must not
be disappointed ; so Alfred resolved to
slip through the procession. Half-way
through , the crowd surged up in front
of him and blocked the way , and be
fore Alfred knew how it all came about er
he was driving the first carriage in the
big procession , and Angelina Seraphina
was in the place of honor ! The station
was just ahead , and the crowds on
either side became denser and denser ,
and so it was that this young lady's
carriage simply had to head the pro
cession all the rest of the way ! You
Bhould have seen Mollie's and Trottie's
eyes when they saw their beloved Angelina
T gelina being thus escorted to the train !
There were broad smiles on the faces at
of hundreds who were looking on , and
even the governor-elect had to smile ,
although he , poor man , was being de ed
prived of the honors of the occasion ! "
Angelina , I am .pleased to say , bore
herself in a very dignified manner ; but
Alfred's face well , it would have been
quite as red as a beet , I am sure , had
not Mother Nature already made it as
black as ebony ! Webb Donnell.

The new boy was sitting on a big
stone post at the foot of his drive
way , when Peter drove the cows to you
"Hallo ! " said the new boy , pleasant
ly. "Come fishin' , will you ? "
"Can't , " drawled Peter. "I've got to
work ! Wish I was you , " he said , en
viously , 'an' didn't have nothin' to deBut
But go flshin' , an' sit on a post an' let the
my feet hang down ! "
The new boy laughed. "We have
cows , " he said , shortly ; "a whole dozen
of them ! " do
"But you don't have to drive them to
pasture , " declared Peter.
"Don't I ? " said the new boy. "I take
them away down to Mr. Lane's pasture
every morning 'fore breakfast ! "
Peter eyed him curiously from top to
Jkj1 toe. "Well , you're a queer one , " he
said. "But perhaps if I only had the led
> cows to drive , I'd get up early , too ! "
The new boy laughed again. "We've
got hens , " he said , quickly , "an * chick her
ens an' pigs an' horses , same as you
have ! I guess what makes the differ
ence 'tween you an' me is 'cause you
don't do your work by ray grandma's
'Seeing I never heard of It , I guess I
don't , " replied Peter , with a grin.
"Supposing you tell it to a feller ! "
"I 'most know thafyou've heard it , "
said the new boy , "only you've forgot
ten. It's 'work while you work , ' an'
'play whllo you play ! ' An' I tell you
It's a fine one ! "
"Ho ! ho ! ho ! " laughed Peter.
"That's a dandy rule , Isn't It ? Maybe
It does for you , but when a feller haste
to work all the time , same as I do , why
then it's only 'work while you work'
an' no time to play while you play , '
at all ! "
"Are you working now ? " asked the
new boy , with a smile.
"Not 'zactly ! " answered Peter.
"An' you're not playing , are you ? " he
"No , " said Peter , "I ain't. "
"Then you're doing nothing , " de
clared the new boy.
"Same as you be , " said Peter , cross
ly. He knew that he was lazy , but he
didn't enjoy being told about It , one
The new boy jumped down" from the
post in a hurry. "You're right , " he
said , with a laugh. "Supposing you
let me drive your cows while you run
home an' do the rest of your work.
An' supposing you an' I go into part
nership , an' take my grandma's rule
for our motto. An' then every mornIng -
Ing after we get our chores done , sup

Peter looked at him in surprise , and I
then he said earnestly , "Shake on it ! "

sorry ! MARGARET DANE.
Lived on the Sen All Their Lives.
A little blue-eyed baby girl was
crawling on the cabin deck under an
awning aboard the iron bark Star of
the East as that vessel lay moored at
a pier in New York ; Her mother , the
wife of Captain George Norman Rog-
ers , who commands the bark , was with
her child , whom they had named Star
Cameron Rogers. Beside the baby was
her sister Margaret , who is 2 years and
months old. Little Star was born
aboard the bark while the vessel was
humming along near the island of Tris
tan de Chuna , in the South Atlantic ,
on November 11 , 1898. There was
never a healthier child than Star. Since
she was born she had been aboard the
bark nearly all the time , with the ex
ception of a short stay ashore at Auck
land , New Zealand , where the child
was introduced to her grandmother.
When a reporter went aboard , Star had
just finished her afternoon sleep ,
after her mother had put a white silk
dress on the baby she was held up to
be seen. She has a rosy complexion
and a bright smile , and is the picture
health. She has traveled more than
16,000 miles since she was born , and
has been around Cape Horn. Star
never slept in a bed. When she was
much smaller than she is now her
mother took her into her bunk at .
night. But on the voyage home the
child slept in a canvas hammock. The
more the bark rocked and rolled the
better the baby seemed to like it. The
sailors of the bark are proud of little
Star , and say she is their mascot.
Margaret can walk and talk. She is a
regular little sailor. She has been
around the Horn twice , and has made a
voyage around the world. Margaret is
different from "shore" babies. She
does not care for toys. She has some
blocks and other little things with
which to play , but she likes best of all
stand at the wheel. Margaret also
sleeps in a hammock. It is only during
rough weather that her mother takes
her into her own bunk. Margaret cele
brated the Fourth of July by eating
her first orange and her first dish of
strawberries. She did not know wheth
she liked the fruit or not. [
Worked Two \Vays.
Little Jack had two apples , which he
had saved from desert. There were |
visitors in the room , and one of the
gentlemen thought it would be a good
opportunity to give Jack a lesson In
manners. So he called the boy and th
said : "I see you have two apples ,
Jacky. Won't you give me one ? "
Jack hesitated , looked rather ruefully
his prizes , and finally offered the do
smaller one. This was what the gen
tleman had expected , and he proceed ee
to expatiate upon it , ending with : mi
"Now , Jack , whenever you have any cu
thing to give away , you should always fe
keep the poorest for yourself. " This sa
might be good manners , but it didn't tr
harmonize with Jack's desires. So he as
ruminated over it a while , and then '
stuck out the other fist. "Take the
other one , too , " he said generously.
The gentleman was congratulating
himself on his success , when Jack
stunnned him by saying : "Now , won' * 'I
please give me one ? "
Victoria Cleaned TVIndows.
Here is a funny little
story about the be
Princess Victoria. One day her mother bem.
took her-to visit QueenAdelaide. The
duchess left the little one-'alone with
queen for some time , and the latter , eus

said : "Now , my dear , you have an He
hour to spend with me , and you shall
exactly as you like. " the
"Exactly as I like ? " queried the little
princess In glee.
"Yes , " answered the queen , little he
thinking what was to follow.
"Then , dear Aunt Adelaide , " said the
child , "may I be allowed to clean the It
windows ? "
Queen Adelaide was somewhat start
, but the little one had her way , set

TAIMAGE'S . SERMON.
"CHRISTIANITY AS A DELU
SION" THE SUBJECT.
From the Text , Kzclc. , zxl , SI , an Follows :
"Ho Made Ills Arrow * Itrlght , He
CoiiHuItod with Iiuugcg , IIo Looked in
the Liver. "
( Copyright 1SS3 by Louis Klopsch. )
Two modes of divination by which
the king of Babylon proposed to find
out the will of God : He took a bundle
of arrows , put them together , mixed
them together , then pulled forth one ,
and by the Inscription on it decided
what city he should first assault. "Then
an animal was slain , and by the light
er or darker color of the liver , the
brighter or darker prospect of success
was Inferred. That Is the meaning of
the text , "He made his arrows bright ,
he consulted with images , he looked in
the liver. " Stupid delusion ! And yet
all the ages have been filled with de
lusions. It seems as If the world loves
to be hoodwinked , the delusion
of the text only a specimen of the
vast number of deceits practiced upon
the human race. In the latter part of
the last century Johanna Soiithcote
came forth pretending to have divine
power , made prophecies , had chapels
built In her honor , and one hundred
thousand disciples came forward to
follow her. About five years before
the birth of Christ , Apollonius was
born , and he came forth , and after five
years being speechless , according to
tradition , he healed the sick , and raised
the ( dead , and preached virtue , and , ac
cording to the myth , having deceased ,
was brought to resurrection. The Del
phic Oracle deceived vast multitudes of
people ; the Pythoness seated 'n the
temple of Apollo uttering a crazy jargon
gen from which the people guessed
their Individual or national fortunes
or misfortunes. The utterances were
of such a nature that you could read
them ' any way you wanted to read
them. ! ' . A general coming forth to battle
consulted the Delphic Oracle , and he
wanted to find out whether he was
going to be safe in the battle , or killed
In battle , and the answer came forth
from the Delphic Oracle in such words
that if you put the comma before the
word "never" it means one thing , and
If you put the comma after the word
"never" it means another thing just
opposite. The message from the Del
phic Oracle to the general was , "Go
forth , returned never in battle shalt
thou perish. " If he was killed , that
was according to the Delphic Oracle ;
if he came home safely , that was ac
cording to the Delphic Oracle.
So the ancient auguries deceived the
people. The priests of those auguries ,
by the flight of birds , or by the in
tonation of thunder , or by the inside
appearance of slain animals , told the
fortunes or .misfortunes of individuals
or nations. The sibyls deceived the
people. The sibyls were supposed to
te inspired women who lived in caves
and who wrote the sibylline books afterward
erward purchased by Tarquin the
Proud. So late as the year 1S29 , a
man arose In New York , pretending to
be a divine being , and played his part
SQ well that wealthy merchants be
came his disciples and threw their for
tunes into his keeping. And so in all
ages there have been necromancies , in
cantations , witchcrafts , sorceries , mag-
Jcal arts , enchantments , divinations
and delusions. The one of the text
was only a specimen of' that which
has been occurring in all ages of the
world. None of these delusions ac
complished any good. They deceived ,
they pauperized the people , they were
as cruel as they were absurd. They
opened no hospitals , they healed no
woundj , they wiped away , no tears ,
they emancipated no serfdom.
Admiral Farragut , one of the most
admired men of the American navy ,
learly became a victim of this Christian
delusion , and seated not long before
his death at Long Branch , he was giv- |
ing , some friends an account of his
early life. He said : "My father went
down in behalf of the United States
government to put an end to Aarona.r
Burr's rebellion. I was a cabin boy
and went along with him. I could f
gamble in every style of gambling. I
knew all the wickedness there was at
that time abroad. One day my father
cleared everybody out of the cabin
except myself and locked the door. HeWI
said : 'David , what are you going to
? What are you going to be ? ' 'Well , ' rj
Is said , 'father , I am going to follow the
eea. ; ' 'Follow the sea ! and be a poor ,
miserable , drunken sailor , kicked and
cuffed about the world , and die of a ,
fever in a foreign hospital. ' 'Oh , no ! ' I :
said , 'father , I will not be that. I will
tread < the quarter-deck and command
you do. ' 'No , David , ' my father said , *
'no , David , a person that has your
principles and your bad habits will
never tread the quarter-deck or com- an
mand. ' My father went out and shut I so
the door after him , and I said then : 1 th
will change ; I will never swear ar
again ; I will never drink again ; I will be
never gamble again. ' And.gentlemen.by th
the help of God , I have kept those three Sa
vows to this time. I soon after that co
became a Christian , and that decided or
my fate for time and for eternity. "
Another-captive of this great Chris
tian delusion. There goes Saul of Tar-
on horseback at full .gallop. Where
he going ? To destroy Christians.
wants no better play spell than to in
stand and watch the hats and coats of
murderers who are massacring
God's children. There goes the same
man. This time he is afoot. Where is
going now ? Going on the road to
Ostia to die for Christ. They tried to
whip It out of him ; they tried to scare
out of him ; they thought they would
give him enough of it by putting him a
into a windowless dungeon and keeping
him on small diet , and denying him a
cloak , and condemning him as a crim
inal , and howling at him through the
street ; but they could not freeze it the
of him , and they could not sweat
it out of him , and they could not pound
It out of him , so they tried the surgery
of the sword , and one summer day In
66 he was decapitated. Perhaps the
mightiest Intellect of the 6,000 years
of the world's existence hoodwinked ,
cheated , cajoled , duped by the Chris
Ah ! that is the remarkable thing
about this delusion of Christianity It
overpowers the strongest intellects.
Gather the critics , secular and relig
ious , of this century together , and put
a vote to them as to which Is the great
est book ever written , and by large ma
jority they will say "Paradise Lost. "
Who wrote "Paradise Lost" ? one of
the fools who believed in the Bible
John Milton. Benjamin Franklin sur
rendered to this delusion , if you may
judge from the letter that he wrote to
Thomas Paine , begging him to destroy
the "Age of Reason" in manuscript ,
and never let it go into type ; and writ
ing afterward , in his old days : "Of
this Jesus of Nazareth I have to say
that the system of morals he left , and
the religion he has given us are the
best things the world has seen or is
likely to see. " Patrick Henry , the
electric champion of liberty , was en
slaved by this delusion , so that he
says : "The book worth all other books
put together is the Bible. " Benjamin '
Rush , the leading physiologist and
anatomist of his day , the great med
ical scientist what did he say ? "The
only true and perfect religion Is Christh '
tianity. " Isaac Newton , the leading
philosopher of his time what did
he say ? That man , surrendering to '
this delusion of the Christian religion ,
cried out : "The sublimest philosophygo
on earth is the philosophy of the gos- '
pel. " David Brewster , at the pronun
ciation of whose name every scientist
the world over uncovers his head David -
vid Brewster saying , "Oh- this religion
has been a great light to me a very
great light all my days. " President
Thiers , the great French statesman ,
acknowledging that he prayed when he
I am glad to believe. " David Living
stone , able to conquer the lion , able to
conquer the panther , able to conquer
the savage , yet conquered by this de
lusion , this hallucination , this great
swindle of the ages , so when they find
him dead they find him on his knees.
William E. Gladstone , the strongest in
tellect in England , unable to resist this
chimera , this fallacy , this delusion of
the Christian religion , went to the
house of God every Sabbath , and often
at the invitation of the rector read the
prayers to the people. If those mighty
intellects are overborne by this delu
sion , what chance is there for you and
for me ?
* * *
The cannibals in south sea , the bushmen -
men of Terra del Fuego , the wild men
of Australia , putting down the knives
of their cruelty , and clothing them
selves in decent apparel all under the
power of this delusion. Judson and
Doty and Abeel and Campbell and Wil
liams and the three thousand mission
aries of the cross turning their backs
on home and civilization and comfort ,
and going out amid the squalor of
heathenism to relieve it , to save it , to
help it , toiling until they dropped into
their graves , dying with no earthly
comfort about them , and going into
graves with no appropriate epitaph ,
when they might have lived in this
country , and lived for themselves , and
lived luxuriously , and been at last put
into brilliant sepulchers. What a delusion - ,
Yea , this delusion of the Christian
religion shows itself in the fact that
it goes to those who are in trouble.
Now ( , it is bad enough to cheat a man
when ] he is well and when he is pros
perous ; but this religion comes to' a
man ; when he is sick , and says : "You
will be well again after a while ; you
are going into a land where there are
nc coughs and no pleurisies and no
co and no languishing ; take
CO and bear up. " Yes , this awful
chimera of the gospel comes to the
poor and it says to them : "You are
on your way to vast estates and to div
idends always declarable. " This delu
sion of Christianity comes to the bereit
and . it talks of reunion before the
throne , and of the cessation of all ser
row. And then , to show that this de
lusion will stop at absolutely nothing ,
it goes to the dying bed and fills the
man with anticipations. How much
better it would be , to have him die Iy
without any more hope than swine and
rats and snakes ! Shovel him under ! or
That is all. Nothing more left of him.
He ' will never know anything again.
Shovel him under ! The soul is only a
superior part of the body , and when
the body disintegrates the soul disin
tegrates. : Annihilation , vacancy , ever
lasting blank , obliteration ! Why not
present all that beautiful doctrine to
the dying , instead of coming with this
hoax , this swindle of the Christian re
ligion ? , and filling the dying man with
anticipations of another life , until
some in the last hour have clapped
their hands , and some have shouted ,
and some have sung , and some have
been so overwrought with joy that
they could only look ecstatic. Palace
gates opening , they thought diamond
coronets flashing , hands beckoning ,
orchestras sounding. Little children
dying actually believing they saw their
departed parents , so that aWiough the
little children had been so weak and
feeble and sick for weeks they could not
turn on their dying pillow , at the last ,
a paroxysm of rapture uncontrollable

shouted : "Mother , catch me ; I am

cannot be a delusion. A lie , a cheat ,
swindle , a hallucination cannot the
launch such a glory of the centuries. He
Your logic and your common sense
convince you that a bad cause cannot
produce an Illustrious result ; out of
womb of such a monster no such
angel can be born. There are many on
who began with thinking that the
Christian religion was a stupid farce
who have come to the conclusion that
it Is a reality. Why are you In the
Lord's house today ? Why did you
elng this song ? Why did you bow
your head In the opening prayer ? Why
did you bring your family with you ?
Why , when I tell you of the ending of
all trials In the'bosom'of God , do'thero
stand tears In your eyes not tears of
grief , but tears of Joy such as stand in
the eyes of homesick children far away
at school when gome one talks to them
about going home ? Why Is It that you
can be so calmly submissive to the
death of your lo\ed one , about whoso
departure you once were so angry and
so rebellious ? There is something the
matter with you. All your friends
have found out there is a great change.
And If some of you would give your
experience you would give it In scholarly -
arly style , and others giving their cso
perlence would give It In broken style ,
but the one experience would be Just
as good as the other. Some of you
have read everything. You are scientific -
tific and you are scholarly , and yet If
I should ask you , "What Is the most
eensiblo thing you ever did ? " you
would say : "The most sensible thing
I ever did was to give my heart to
But there may be others who have
not had early advantages , and If they
were asked to give their experience
they might rise and give such testlsu
mony as the man gave in a prayer
meeting when he said : "On my way
here tonight I met a man who asked
me where I was going. I said , 'I am
going to a prayer meeting. ' He said ,
'There are a good many religions , and
I think the most of them are delu-
sions ; as to the Christian religion , that
Is only a notion that Is a mere notion ,
J the Christian religion. ' I said to him :
"Stranger , you see that tavern over
there ' ? ' 'Yes , ' he said , 'I eee it. ' 'Don't
you see me ? ' 'Yes , of course I see
you. ' 'Now , the time was when everySt
body in this town knows if I had a
quarter of a dollar in my pocket I
could not pass that tavern without go
ing in and getting a drink ; all the
people of Jefferson could not keep me
out of that place ; but God has changed
my heart , and the Lord Jesus Christ
has destroyed ray thirst for strong
drink , and there is my whole week's
wages , and I have no temptation to
go in there ; and , stranger , if this Is a
notion , I want to tell you it is a mlghty
powerful notion ; it Is a notion that
has put clothes on my children's backs ,
and it is a notion that has put good
food on our table , and it is a notion
that has filled my mouth with thanks-
giving to God. And , stranger , you bad
better go along with me ; you mighty
get religion , too ; lots of people are
getting religion now. ' "
Well , we will soon understand It all.
Your life and mine will soon be over.
We will soon come to the last bar of
the music , to the lact act of the tragth
edy , to the last page of the book yea ,
to the last line and to the last word ,
and to you and to me it will either bo
midnoon or midnight !
Disguised us a Wicker Basket Used to
New Orleans Times-Democrat : "A
traveling photo salesman showed me a
very ingenious trick camera the other
day , " said a local dealer. "It was a
box about six inches square , set inside
of what seemed to be an ordinary
wicker lunch basket. When desired
the box could be pushed down through
the basket , so that its top was on a
level with the wicker bottom. The
top of the box was also covered with
wicker , and the basket would then ap
pear to be perfectly empty , the cami
era protruding meanwhile from the
under side. An upward push would
restore it to its original position and
the lens worked through a small hole
near the end. The contrivance was
evidently of foreign manufactures , and
the salesman told me it had been made
especially for an agent who was sent A
to take pictures of fortifications on the
French frontier. According to his
story , which is a little romantic , but
which I have no reason to doubt , the 4
spy would saunter out , dressed as a
tourist and carrying the lunch basket S.
on his arm. When an officer came
along he would push down the box and
show him that the basket was perfectpu
empty. It never occurred to the
guards to turn the thing upside down ,
it would have been promptly confis
cated. The present owner carries it
around as a curio , and it is certainly Vt'
the oddest little machine I ever laid
eyes on. As far as I know , it is the Is
only camera in the world that is s't
mounted on a "
disappearing carriage. QI
