Cleanliness at Home and Abroad.
England, which has been properly
and justifiably horrified at the reve
lations made concerning American
packing houses, will be yet more ap
palled at learning' that the food prod

many cases, an equally disgusting dis
regard for cleanliness and asepie

have found conditions in the sausage,
jam and chocolate factories of the
most repulsive "character, says The
Reader. Apropos of all this, an in
teresting traveler, the count .of Turin,
cousin of the king of Italy, who has
been making a tour of America and
Europe, says that after visiting sev
eral of the local London packing
houses, he has come to the conclu
sion that the Chicago establishments
were the cleaner. The truth is. we
require of wholesale purveyors a
standard of cleanliness which we too
frequently fail to enforce on our
farms and in our bakeries. The Amer
ican traveler who goes no further than
the local boarding house, the country
inn, the urban hostelry or the railway
eating station, has data enough for a
startling culinary essay, were he
minded to write it; and what goes

New York. A letter has been re
ceived in this city from the capital of
Finland which throws many sidelights
on the social, political and revolution
ary conditions there during the tu
multuous days of the Sveaborg mu
tiny. The letter was written by Mrs.
Isabel Donner, widow of Herman Don
ner. for 22 years United States con
sul at Helsingfors, and addressed to
her son. Prof. H. Montague Donner,
of New York.
"Helsingfors, Aug. 10-23. There
have indeed been terrible events hap
pening here. The days of the mutiny
were very anxious ones, and the con
tinual firing both from Skatuddeh, arid
the various fortress islands was fear
ful to hear. The streets were full of
Russian soldiers and Cossacks, and
many families fled from their homes.
I see that In the account of the end
ing of the mutiny In the American
papers what Is stated to have been
the real determining cause Is not men
tioned. On one of the Islands held
by the mutineers were two large pow
der magazines. One of these was
struck by a shell from one of the men-of-war
and exploded, causing great
loss of life, and If the second and
much larger one had also been struck
later the whole island would have been
blown up and a great part of Helsing
fors also. A building close to It was
struck by a ball and set on fire, npon
which the mutineers hoisted the wiiite
flac and capitulated.

was sitting by my open window, and

architect among them were burled
by the town in one large. grave, side

by thousands, although It poured with
rain the whole day.
( "There was a strike of, the whole
police force a short time ago because
they did not like the officer who in
structed them, and the Skyddsgarde
had to turn out in their place. The
next day they were induced to return
to their duties on the promise that the
matter should be inquired Into. Two
thirds of the force, it now appears,
are of the socialist-revolutionary par
ty, and mostly themselves' members
of the Red Guard, and sided openly
with the latter in the Hagnas riot,
and on other occasions of turbulence
and bloodshed. The police are very
poorly paid and are thus drawn only

you change the spelling they will re

Indeed, some philologists assure us
that derivation would more easily be
traced and followed, in the simplified
or phonetic spelling than in the pres

and symbols. There is no more
doubt, to take a single example, of the
derivation of filosofy than of philosophy.

The Red Guard at Work.
The incident that most painfully
affected me was the affair at Hagnas
square, close to the Longa Bron (Long
Bridge), where is situated one of the
power stations and rar houses of the
electric tramway. Kro, as perhaps
you know, the Re:i Guard had attacked

Attempt to Kill Stolypin.
The attempt to assassinate M. Sto
lypin, the new Russian premier, took
place, as everybody knows, at about
four o'clock on the afternoon of Satur
day, August 12-23, in the minister's
villa on Apothecary Island, near- St
Petersburg. The minister escaped the
explosion of the bomb, concerning the
introduction of which no two stories
agree, but from the ruins of the build
ing 28 corpses were later recovered
and the maimed bodies of 32 wounded
persons were taken to the hospital.
The attempt to take the life of M.
Stolypin is of the greatest importance
as marking the end of one epoch and
the beginning of another in the Rus
sian revolution. In its lurid light the
present situation In Russia is clearly
discernible. After the failure of the
Sveaborg revolt and the Kronstadt
mutiny signs were not wanting to re
veal the fact that the phase of the
revolution which consisted of the "re
moval" of officials highly placed had
got beyond the control of the execu
tive beads of the revolutionists. On
August 10-September 1 the central
committee of the socialist revolution-
lowed. Formerly a few were executed
in a year; now hundreds are shot in
Another phase of the reign of ter
ror is to be found in the raids made
by small bands of revolutionists on
government buildings such as banks,
post offices and churches; considerable
sums of money and a large amount of
treasure have thus been seized.
The revolutionists operate In broad
daylight as fallows: Five or six sol
diers are standing before. a govern
ment building with loaded rifles, ready
to fire, when snddenfy each is con
fronted by a stalwart youth pointing
a reyolverto his forehead, whereupon
the soldiers stand as though seized by
a cataleptic fit while other revolution
ists thoroughly pillage the apartments
within. When the operation is fin
ished the stalwart youths walk back
ward about 15 paces, holding their
revolvers pointed and enjoining the
military to remain inactive. Then
they run. The warriors quickly shoul
der rifles and a series of loud reports
in quick succession are heard," the
smoke slowly lifts, and nearly all the
soldiers are seen sprawling on the
ground dead or wounded, other revo
luptionlsts, screened among the spec
tators, having deftly shot them from
revolvers before they could fire their
rifles. The next day the newspapers
announce a robbery in Warsaw.

LIGHT OF OTHER DAYS.
Primitive Artificial llluminants In Use
The sconce and the lantern were In
general use throughout the middle
ages. The sconce was a light covered
and guarded from the wind, lifted
down by a handle and distinct from
the lantern, serving somewhat the
same purpose, but hung by a chain.
Lanterns in the thirteenth century
were made of gold, silver, copper, or

Noblemen and rich merchants took
to having luxurious little traveling
equipments made for them, and among
these were traveling candlesticks and
wash basins in fine enameled work,
the secret of which is now lost .
The custom of having servants carry
flambeaux at festivals also became
general about this time and a strange
and tragic, incident is connected with
this fashion.. At a ball given by

Lamps fell in disfavor at the be
ginning of the seventeenth century
and were only used by the poor and in
passages and stables where the smoke
could evaporate and a great deal of
light was needed. Candles had then
reached their perfection and can.Ue
sticks their most exquisite form. A
candlestick of crystal given by Louis
XIV. to La Valliere is still in existence
and it was at this time, also, that the
crystal pendants came Into fashion.
Street illuminations were not seri

the middle of the seventeenth century.
In the first years of that notable cen

"The commandment which Jesus
cites to the scribe is peculiar to re
vealed religion. That is only to say.
in other words, that it presupposes
redemption. We could hot imagiae
such a precept in the religion of
Greece, or of Rome, and, of course, we
do not find it Who can 'love.' In any
conceivable sense of the word. Zeus
or Poseidon, Here or Athene? Neither
the place they hold In the universe,
nor their characters and relations to
each other, nor their attitude to men,
inspire any such emotion. It is often,
said that love cannot be commanded,
but that has only a limited truth.
Granted certain relations between per
sons, and love Is demanded by the
very nature of the case; if it is awant
ing, its absence is the graves ot
moral faults, and brings innumerable
others in its train; till it comes, lit
eraily nothing can be right" James
Denney, D. D.
Why Is this the first and greatest
1. It Is greatest in its nature, being
the highest and noblest act of the
2. It is the sum of the. first table of
3. It has the greatest value, being
the fountain and source of all virtue,
of all love to our neighbor, because it
Is the consecreation of self to the
Father of all good, and all men. Her
bert Spencer says. "By no political al
chemy can you get golden conduct out
of leaden instincts."
4. It Is the act the outgoing of the
whole nature of man. It is ail-iaclus-ive.
5. It is the most difficult of all
things. Love is not a mere sentiment
a general good feeling toward God,
when all things go right with us; but
it is a devotion to God and His cause
when that devotion makes us mar
tyrs; that enables us to trust Him in
the darkest night, and say with Job,
"The Lord gave, and the Lord hath
taken away; blessed be the name ol
the Lord," and "Though He slay me.
yet will I wait for Him."
Reasons for Loving God Supremely.
(1) He is supremely good; He is the
sum of all good. He that loves God
loves all that is good, and hates all
that is evil. (2) He is not only good,
but lovable. His goodness is attrac
tive; it is worthy of love. (3) All we
have and are wc owe to him; and the
only way in which we can make any
return Is to love him and obey him in
love. That is all that is ours to give;
to withhold it is unutterably mean.
(4) "The best thing in man is love,
and 'God wants the best" (5) Such
love not only honors God, but elevates
man. Love is the most ennobling act
of the soul; and the nobler and higher
the object and the more intense the
love, so much the more is the one who
thus loves ennobled, purified, enlarged,
exalted in nature. (6) In Him arc
found all that ought to move the high
est affections of men.
Suggestions. 1. Love is the greatest
thing in the world. For an unfolding
of this great fact see 1 Cor. 13, and
read Prof. Drummond's booklet, "The
Greatest Thing In the World."
2. Love is the fulfilling of the second
table of the Law. Compare "The Spec
trum of Love" in Drummond. illus
trating the description of love in 1
Cor. 13, and his "Programme of Chris
tianity," which is stated in Christ's
own words (Luke 4:18). the fulfill
ment of the Prophet Isaiah's words
(Isa. 61:1). the soul of the Old Testa
ment, and exemplified in Christ's mes
sage to John the Baptist (Matt 11:
3. By loving our neighbor we csn
test and express our love to God. This
Is more effective 'than even prayers
and songs of praise, though these help
to inspire and cultivate love to God.
So St Johu says. "If a man say. 'I
love God.' and hateth his brother, he
is a liar; for he that Ioveth not his
brother whom he hath seen, how can
he love God wMom he hath not seen?"
(1 John 4:20).
4. Love to God and love to man
transform earth into heaven.
Compare the conditions given in the
twenty-fifth chapter of Matthew,
where the good deeds enjoined are not
substitutes for faith, and prayer, and
love, and honesty, but they are the
proofs of a right heart, from which all
Not the Amount of the Gift, but the
Spirit of Sacrifice. Ruskin in his
Seven Lamps of Architecture, "The
Lamp of Sacrifice." in speaking of the
expense lavished on the tabernacle,
says that "the covenant of God with
his people was marked and its ac
ceptance signified by some external
sign of their love and obedience and
surrender of themselves to His wiU.
The Measure of the Gift.
The measure of a gift lies not In
the largeness of the gift, but in the
largeness of the love and sacrifice it
expresses; not the size of the gift but
the cost to the giver; not the number i
of the sheaves, or of the measures of I
fruit but the love and gratitude and I
