were still falling when the up train
steamed into D- station at 10
C)f the half dozen pusscngera who
alighted, all savo one hurried away to
their respective destinations.
This one looked about him as though
undecided which course to take. At

collar only a pair of merry blue oyes
and a good natured nose wero visible,

is due in twenty minutes, and we must
be Off. All abroad!" he shouted, wav
ing tho tignal to move on. ."Good
night, Gene!"' and swinging himself on
board the already moving train, he was
soon lost to view as the engine went
puffing and whirling away in the dark
ness. The young man waited until the last
fiery spark had dissappeared round the
dLtant curve, then, lighting a cigar,
started again on iris way. Taking a
street which led away from the town,
he soon found himself in the open coun
try. Not until then did he realize his
error in not hiring a conveyance. "Five
miles of this sort of thing will consume
most of the night," he thought.
"Well, I'm in for it now, as it is .too

Eugene Hector had. been a high
spirited, biR-hearted, generous hoy, the
ring leader in all the youth fnl escapades,
full of fun, fond of a joke, aud alto
gether, just the one to get into mischief.
His father.after helping hhu out of nu
merous scrapes intojwhich his fun-loving
nature had led him, at length lost
patience and refused him aid in the last
and worst dile ma of all. Stung by
the reproaches heaped upon him, and
by a sense of shame quite unbearable, j
ne nail gone out into tne world to light
his own battles. With the firm resolve
to make a man of him&elf yet, he had
sought and obtained employment, aud
at the time we make his acquaintance
he is prosperous nnd happj.
llis father had long since forgiven
him and urged his return, bnt Eugene i
had grown to love tho busy, bustling
life he had led, and could not be in
duced to leave it
A longing to see the old home had
seized him, however, and he resolved
to give the old people a surprise hence
this midnight journey.
Arrived at the farm house, Eugene
Hector paused to gaze about him
at the old familiar objects ko dear
to his boyhood, then, shaking oft the
feeling of sadness which stole over him,
he ascended the steps and rapped loudly
at the door. The peremptory summons
brought his father, demauding lr.

"It is I, Eugene! D- yon know

-o the sitting room, while his father.

joyful news, and assure her that it was

The good lady, laughing and crying
together, rushed into her son's arms,
giving him such a welcome as only a
mother can. Having kissed him " for
the hundredth time, sho bethought her
of his fatigue, and inquired if he were
"Half famished, mother!" Have been
fasting for a -week in anticipation of
the good things stored away in your
pantry!" he answered gaily.
His mother repaiied to the kitchen,
carrying both the lamp and her hus
band as protection against that bug-bcjir
of her life, burglars, in case auy .should
be hidden there. Left alono in the
fire-lit room, Eugene leaned back, in
the big arm chair with a sigh of con
teat, thinking how good it was to be at
home again, aud enjoying the genial
warmth as only a man or a cat can.
Suddenly a new thought seemed to
strike him, aud he bounded to his foot,
exclaiming, "I wonder all this rumpns
has not wakened Charley! Surely it
was enough to rouse the seven sleep
ers." , .
Crossing the room to a door which
stood ajar, he pushed it wide open and
stepped within. ,

contents full in the upturned face.

These and other equally disturbing
thoughts ran through his mind until
he fell asleep.
Eugene decended to breakfast next
morning half hoping the lady was
too ill, or too much put out) to ap
pear at the table. 'He was doomed to
disappointment however, for when
he plunged into the dining-room much

a very stiff bow.
"Not quite so anxious to make her ac
quaintance as you were last night, eh?"
laughed his .father. This remark
tended in no wise to allay his embar
rassment, and a fleeting glimpse of a
pair of beseeching eyes, brimming ovef
with tears, completed his discojntiture.
Words of apology rose to Eugene's
lips, but his tongue refused to titter
them.' "What a perfect heathen she
must think me!" he kept saying to him

meals in the pantry;" declared Eugene
when his mother begged him to be civil
to Miss Boll.
She has kindly offered to keep house
in my absence, so do be sensible and
not give her further trouble," begged
"I'll try," promised he, inwardly
resolving to make all possibly haste
back to the city. There was no traiu
till next morning, so the young man
was forced to spend the evening in
solitude, as Miss Bell did not appear.
Somehow the breakfast table looked
very cosy and inviting, laid for two, and
presided over by this lovely girl.
Myrtie had donned one of his mothers
big aprons, and flitted from kitchen to
dining-room in so natural and home-like
a manner that Eugene, watching her,
began to experience an entirely new
feeling toward her. "He did full justice
to the meal, but in silence. When it
was over he asked if he could be of any
assistance to her in her new role. She
thanked him, bnt replied in the nega
tive, whereupon the whimsical notion
seized him of helping her willy nilly.
Finding the fellow to the big apron
which she wore, he tied it about his
waist, laid aside his cuffs, rolled up his
sleeves and set to work as soberly as

At the end of that time he discovered
that traveling alone is not only decid

accompanied Miss "Bell home.

In answer to the question; uHdwdoes
tne American pulpit of tuepresent'eom
pare with that of earlier times? Joseph
Cook, who is a shrewd observer, re
marks: "The earlier American pulpit
hadfewer rivals for public attention
than the later. Newspapers and plat
forms in the colonial era were by no
means such instructors of the people as
they are to-day. Tho pulpit of our time
must stand on its rendered reasons.
Ministers as a class have1 great social
prestige, but not as great now as in the
days of our fathers. It is more neces
sary now than ever before that the pul
pit should expect to be measured, as it
certainly will be, according to the
standards of its actual character and
achievement in spiritual fields of ac
tivity. After all, the pulpit has no ri
val as a teacher of religious thought.
Neither the press nor the platform an
swers, as the pulpit does, the supreme
question, 'What shall I do to be saved?'
The power of the pulpit to-day, as it
has been in every age of the world, is
in meeting man's deepest spiritual
wants. The modern American pulpit
has a practical spirit not surpassed by
that of the pulpit of an earlier period."
St. Louis Republic.
Precept and Practice.
The Rev. Mr. Kelley, curate of a
chapel in the town of Ayr, Scotland,
once preached an excellent sermon from
the beautiful parable of the man who
fell among thieves.
He was particularly severe upon the
conduct of the priest who saw tho in
jured man, and ministered not unto
him, but passed on the opposite side,
and in an animated and pathetic flow of
eloquence, he exclaimed:
Vhat! not even the servant of the
Almighty 1 He whoso tongue was en
gaged in" tho work of charity whose
bosom was appointed the seat of broth
erly love; whose heart the emblem of
pity; whose soul the frozen serpent of
disease did he refuse to stretch forth
his hand and take the mantle from his
shoulders to cover the nakedness of
woe? If he refused, if the shepherd
himself went astray, was it to be won
dered that the flock followed?"'
Such were the precepts of the
preacher, and he "practiced what he
preached." The very next day, when
the river was swollen by rain a boy
in a small boat, was swept overboard by
the force of the current A great con
course of people were assembled, but
none attempted to Bave the boy, when
Jlr. Kelly, who was dressed in full ca
nonicals, threw himself from his cliam-
JHsr window uno tne current, an- $,
tne hazard of liis life brought the boy
safely to shore.
There is no human love like a moth
er's love. There is no human tender
ness like a mother's tenderness. And
there is no such time for a mother first
displaying her love and tenderness to
ward her child as in the child's earliest
years of life. That time neglected, and
no future can make good the loss to
either mother or child. That time well
improved, and all the years that follow
it can profit by its improvement. Even
God himself measures his fatherly love
by a motherly standard. "As one whom
his mother comforteth, so I will com
fort you," he says; aud what more than
this could ho say? And many a strong
man who was first comforted by his
mother's loving and tender words and
ways, while he was a helpless child,
has never lost his grateful, trusting de
pendence on that mother's ministry of
affection and sympathy.
"When gruff old Dr. Johnson was 50
years old, he wrote to his aged mother
as if ho were still her wayward but lov
ing boy: "You have been the best
mother, and I believe the best woman
in the world. I thank you for all the
indulgences to me, and beg forgiveness
lucail mat umvcUiwr av. u-3uTor an
that I have omited to do well."
John Quincy Adams did not part with
his mother until he was nearly or quite
lifty years of age, yet his cry, even then,
was : "O God, could she" have beeu
spared yet a little longer. Without her
the world feels to mo like a solitude."
When President Xott, of Union Col
lege, was more than ninety years old,
aud had been a college president for
half a century, as strength and seuse
failed him in his dying hours, the mem
ory of his mother's tenderness was fresh
and potent; and he could be hushed to
needed sleep by a gentle patting on the
shoulder, and a singing to him of the
old-time lullabie?, as if his mother was
still sitting at his bedside in loving
ministry, as she had been well-nigh a
century before. The true son never
grows old to a true mother. S. i.
A Speech with a Lead Pencil.
Old "Wolf, the Cheyenne chief, made
a very effective speech with a lead pen
cil during a visit of Bishop Arnndel to
Ashland, Mont., a year qgo. He took
the pencil and drawing a straight line
Then he drew uuother straight line
and said :

Thon a third straight line was drawn
and Old Wolf said:
"White House straight." By this he
did not mean the Executive 'Mansion,
but the little white school conducted by
the Sisters of .Charity, which was
known far and near among the Indians
as the "White House."
Next a straight line was drawn part
way across tho page, and from one end
he made a number of very crooked

cat o' nine tails. This was explained
by the chief as:
"Va8hington straight, but all things

Then a line was drawn straight part
of tho way, theu crooked, then straight,
and so on across th'e page.

The Barbarous DoIbkh of tbe
in New Mexico.
The penitentes, says the Las Vegas Op
tic, seem to a new comer in the coantry to
be a strange order of superstitious fanat
ics, tbe old flagellants of the datk ages,
who-have come down by some ecclesiasti
cal legerdemain, landing in this corner of
tbe terrestrial footstool. Their perfonn
ancca are a touch of baptized barbarism
clutching at the skirts of this. nineteenth
century. Ihe Lornbleness or seeing
them at. work
on Good Friday id akin in the recollec
tion to the heartrending moans of the
wounded and dying in a great calamity.
They compose a secret organization that is
fast dying out, and is not now sanctioned
by the dominant chmcb, and the worst of
I their doiugs are snpposed to take place in
their lougeroohis. They are seen to out
siders only when marching in procession;
carrying each a rough wooden cross; nearly
heavy enough to crush them under its
weight. Their backs are usually bare,
and as they stagger along as best they can,
weighted down by their burdensome
load in body and their sins in mind,
their brethren beat them with clubs
and ptick them with cati, till in
many instances, there isn't an inch of the
flesh that isn't torn and bleeding. Not in
frequently they die from the etlects of the
tetnble punishment inflicted. A dolefnl
chanting, in which they specify the partic
ular sins they are trying to expiate, is con
tinually kept up. And yet this very class
is usually composed of the rabble element
of the community. Often; when they get
tbrongh their penances; they go straight off
nnd get drunk and rnn np another score of
evil deeds done in tbe body greater than the
last. Tbey seem to bold implicitly to tbe be
lief that every sin committed must be paid
for in Buffering and tho more pain one en
dares hero tbe less be will have hereafter.
These poor, deluded penitents ate not
attempting any moral improvements.
They are merely endeavoring to shorten
their stay in purgatory, and horrid work
tbey make of it. Anyone who was ever so
unfortunate as to be locked into one of
their lodges must admit that a feeling of
uneasiness and uncertainty crept over him
vrhile there. Perchance a dim light, as
tbe scene may be described, made' awfully
indistinct and ghastly tbe rude form of
Christ on tbe cross; the men stretched out
fnll length on the ground, more like
corpses than living beings, and the
wietrbed objects who plied the scourges
on themselves nnd tbe others, making the

wails and howls were indescribably terri

as tbongh chiseled by tbe skillful hand of a
stone mason. Tbe aroh on top is nearly, if
not quite, 400 feet in width, 1,000 feet in
admit the body of the man. and through
which one con look down into the crystal
pool of water 200 feet below.
The dike which forms ihe bridge extends
in a sweeping curve up the right side of
the stream, nnd, together with the bridge
proper, affords a surface area of abont 100
acres of fertile land, which David Gowan
has converted into a fine farm. A spring
issues from the right side of tbe canyon
at a bight to admit of the water being
easily conducted to any portion of tbe farm
and tbe volume is great enough to fill a
ditch four feet wide and two feet deep and
to irrigate much more land than is avail
able for cultivation.
The climate at tbe bridge is exceedingly
equable, being warmer in the summer and
much milder in tbe winter than that of the
surrounding country, and to this fact is
ascribed the wonderful varioty of vegetable
growth, numbering somu 2o0 species of
trees, shrnbs, vines and plants. The vicin
itv abounds in numtrons fossils and shells,
and wherever moisture percolates through
tbe calcareons rock beautiful stalactites
are formed. Underneath the bridge are
numerous, caves, sonse of which have never
Lecu explored, and which are lined with
these opaque cones resembling hugo
icicles. Boston Transcript.
