A Sermon Stculcr Bounced.
Brooklyn Eagle : The Hov. Jr. Tal-
mage must havu read with surprise that
a single sermon of his has been this ruin
of : i brother minister. The Key. W. 11.
II. Snydcr lias tor twenty-two years been
the pastor of the Salem Reformed Pres
byterian church sit Jlnrrisbnrg , Pa. From
a very small beginning ho has made his
church one of the most nourishing in that
city , Wealthy and prominent eiti/.cns
were attracted by his preaching , n splen
did church cdilice was built foi him , and
both pastor and pepplo were in a most
tlonrisliinjr condition. Some lime ago
Ihe Uov. fllr. Snyder felt too sick to pre
pare a bcrmon of his own , and ho
preached ti very eloquent termon by Iho
Itev. Dr. Talmagc , supposing that no ono
would know thu diU'eroncu between his
own style and that of the eminent Itrook-
lyn preaches. "Uo sure your sin will
Jiml you out , " however , is true of sermon
stealing as well us other kindsof larceny ,
The congregation were delighted with
Ihe sermon , and thought Mr. Snyder -
der even more eloquent when
fueling unwell than when in his most ro
bust condition. It is probable that If he
could have gone on preaching Dr. Tnl-
mago's sermons his salary would have
been doubled and a new head put on Ihu
church Bti-i-ple. Hul a curious and carnal
person in the shape of n young lawyer
happened to bu in thoaudio'nco , and men
tally made eomu habeas corpus rullee-
lions on thu body of the Mirmon. Thu
more he thought , of it the more ho be
came satisfied that he hud hoard it lie -
fore. Oil reaching homo ho happened to
lake up i tt rolnnio of Dr. Talmnge's serA -
inons , and there sum enongliYviis Ihe
identical Hormon which hail produced
Mich an awakening ell'ecl upon the He-
formed Presbyterian dinreli nl Harris-
burg. There was no possibility that thu
appropriation had been accidental , and
that Ihu Huv. Mr. Snyder's ideas about , it
certain text had chanced lo bo idonlieal
with these of the Hov. Dr. Talmago.
Nol a word had been altered ; tliu doth
was whole and wholly Ihe clolh of Ihe
paster of the llrooklyii Tnhornacln.
Instead of thanking Mr. Snyder for
giving them the very best sermon hu
could Jiml , the congregation havu re
solved to cast liiin down hendlinig from
his pulpit of elevation. After I wont.y-two
ycnr.s of cU'eclnal preaching they insist
that In ) step down anil out. llencct'orth

It has Jong been known that shippers
are unwilling to carry largo quantities of
y.ine dust in their vessels , owing to tlio
danger of its getting moist and becoming
heated to u dangerous extent. Mr. Grov-
ille Williams , F. U. S-i has recently made
some researches which throw light on
this matter. He linds that welted y.ino
dust , after drying , gives oil'nearly double
the hydrogen that unwcttcd dust gives.
Hydrogen is absorbed from a moistut
mosphoro at moderate temperature by
y.ino dust. It has , in fact , the power of
oeoluding hydrogou after the manner of
