Ho sntd our subject this afternoon is
'Tho Three Elements of Chrlstiun
I tnko this subject by special request
of n traveling man present.
I address tills sermon to "tho ixngols
of commerce , " though one of our south
ern preachers says that you are very
dlfforont ( .from the tinjjols of the olden
* inio. Their visits were few and far
ntid far between , but yours are every
day and everywhere.
I do not know exactly why you sent
for mo to preach this sermon.
Certainly It was not because you
thought mo especially liberal. I am
old-time In mv beliefs. I bcllovo in
this bible from lid to lid ; I t.-ollovo In a
bottomless hell and a topless heaven ; I
believe In a personal God and that the
devil is an actuality. I bolicvu that
these two great leaders of the forces in
this universe are bidding for the love
and service of every soul , however In
ferior that soul may bo. Hut they bid
for you especially. You know the devil
lias askcd'you to ( jo into his service ,
lie wants you bqcauso you are
n mighty army of 800,000 ,
men In this country. What a power
you are in the Hold'of morals and in
the world of commorco. It is not
etrango that the prince of darkness
wants you. Ho docs not como from the
pit with horns and hoofs after you. On
the contrary , sin cornes to you as an
enticement. Satan employs men to
build gilded palaces of sin that you
may bo entrapped. Some of you have
visited Unit elegant ante-chamber of
hell , in Chicago , whore repairs on one
room lately cost 976,000. Where
the pictures are rare pieces
of art of great value , and
the statuary well nigh as line as Phidias
The devil comes to you with the cap
tivating but vicious game of cards. lie
tells you that you cannot do anything
else that will while away the time so
quickly , and the stake you put tin is
ju&t enough to make it interesting.
Thoarch liond comes to you in the per
son of the lost woman , as beautiful aa a
fallpn angel could bo. Ho raofcs his
brain that ho might bring the awful
pressure of temptation to boar on these
HOO.OOO traveling men.
It is not strange that so many of you
fall. Few mon have moral power
enough to stand transportation. Many
a man is a ehribtian at homo and kcops
the Sabbath , but when ho goes abroad
ho goes to see the Spanish bull lights
on God's day.
But I am glad to toll you that God
bids for thta mighty army of traveling
knights , also Ho comes to you when the
bill of goods is sold and speaks to you in
the teachings of a mother long since
dead or with a master hand ho draws
k for you a picture of your homo
with wife and little ones begging you
i to bo pure and good. Yon cannot
drown the still small voice of God.
The divine Jesus says to you to-uay ,
"How can I give thee up ? "
Which of these great leaders will
you servo ? I would say to these people
who are hero who do not travel on the
road , wo ought to help thcso iiicn in
this choice which moans eternal des
tiny. For this fiery battle that they
wage has all the intensity of a lifo and
death struggle. A kind word , an'invi-
tatlon to the house of God , and a noble
example are never lost on our brothers
of the grip.
God wants you to bo a success , and
Ho wants you to join his army that you
may bo this. Ho would remove all 'ob
stacles in the , way of the grandest
Mon do not fall in this worla for lack
of ability , but because of unfaithfulness
and sin. A man may coma from the
common walks of life and still do the
best work. Stanley was born in Wales
in 1810 , the son of a man who was too
poor to keep htm , hence ho was put in
the poor house.for a term of years. LJut
that bravo soul has gone on and up ,
and has carried a torch that has
lighted up the dark places of the
earth. That some of you have failed to
do all that you hoped to do , need not
dishearten you. "It is by the ship
wreck Unit wo learn to build ships , "
and though some of you who carry the
grip say "I am not as young as I once
was , my hair is turning gay , " wo an

heart is old.1' Ago ought to bring
sense and skill. At seventy yours of
ago one oftho greatest spirits of the old
world rose up and said : "I will hang the
Pantheon in mld-alr. " If youcouldonly
realize tlio bonodts that result from being
on God's sldo , you would not hesitate for
a moment. Head the third chapter of
Proverbs and God will toll you souio of
those. "Happy is the man that llndoth
wisdom and the man that gottoth un

is bettor than the merchandise of silver
nncl the gain thereof than fine gold.
She is more precious than rubies and all
the things thou canst desire are not to

is in her right hand and in her loft
hand riches and honor. "
I will name for you throe principles
of Christian manhood that lam sure Our
Father wants you to havo.

You have had this in n good measure

I 1 have como to the cunclusion that
some of the biggest scamps that run , go
to church. A young Scotch girl came
to our homo the other day and told
Mrs , Savidgo and myself the saddest
Btory I over hoard ; of the base betrayal
by one who was called a man. Yet that
thing frequently attended church.
Many mon have n good measure of di-
rlno blosalngs , though they do not merit
them. But by the blessing of God I
moan not only the general bless
ings which fall upon nil , but divine
pardon and forgiveness. How easily
obtained Is this. Every man that trav
els on the road in a legitimate line can
bo God's child If ho wishes. Tina prize
is not to bo worked for or bought , but
accepted as iv free gift. The sins of the
lifo and the evil thoughts of the heart
must nil bo loft , and us a little child
comes to Us mother , so In the simplicity
&nd honesty of our hearts must wo como
to God. Then nro wo taken out from

that. is. A Sunday school teacher
wanted to toll * his class how it
was , and ho told his boys ho
would give his watch to the one who
would take It. But not till ho came to
the smallest boy was the watch grasped
and hold on to.
It IB yours to take , 'i'horo are many
examines that micht bo glvon to Illus
trate this point of God's blessing. Road
that beautiful story of Esther , the
queen , and you will ECO tins thought :
The king gave a banquet , whore every
body got drunk , and sent word for
Vashtl , the qucon , to como In. 4Tho
qu'con refused and was dismissed
from the palace. Esther , the Jewess -
ess , became queen in her stead.
Old Mordocal , the Jew , who had
brought her up , would not bow to Ha
inan , the prime minister. Thatold Jew
had only one borio in his back and that
was Etraight. The traveling man
ought to bo llko him in that respect.
Through Hainan's Intrigue , the Jews In
all that province were to bo put to death
on a cortuin day. Riders on swift horses
carry the dcatli message. Through
old Mordccai , Hsthor hears of their futo
and she touches the sceptre
of tlio king and invites her hus
band and the prime minister to a
private dinner. When a woman would
roach a man's heart , ahu often docs it
through his stomach. They are again
Invited to dinner u second day. That
night the king can't sloop. Ho tlnds
by the records that old Morducal has
saved his life and lias not been re
warded. Ho compels Hainan to dress
the old Jew in the King's apparel and
place him on the king's liorbo , and
makes him load the horde through
the city. You know the sequel.
Hainan is hanged and the Jews are
saved. Old Mordocal is made prime
minister. God's blessing rests on his
own. His blessing saves iu danger and
You may have it. If I had time I
would give you another example of how
God can not only bless in this general
way , but can save frOni sin.
Ono of your own number who lives in
ray town was last winter convicted for
sin. Ho had n godly wife. That
wife prayed In the family and
said grace at the table , until her
husband told her that he would have no
more of that ' 'foolishness , " with an ad
jective before the "foolishness. " A
man will light when God crowds him
into the last ditch. The wife did not
give him up. Shosnid "those meetings
cannot close until my husband is con
verted. " A meeting was appointed for
that man's special benefit. The whole
charge in the gospel gun was aimed at
him. Ho said , "this mooting' is
for one man. Will ho give
his heart to God ? Ho hesitated
just a moment , then rising up in his
seat he said : "I am that man. and I will
bo a chribllan by God's help. " Ho came
to the altar and prayed for himself , but
ho did not got anything. God can wait
a million years till the conditions are
fulfilled. Jack wont homb. resigned
his $2COO job , mailed his resignation to
the St. Joseph liquor house and
returned his sample case of
liquors. Again ho knelt at God's
altar and this time ho got religion.
Jack weighed 225 , but ho wont over
that house as light as a feather , urging
the most hardened and desperate to
come to Jesus. If only you will pay the
price you may have God's blessing that
saves from sin.
The second quality I mention is sound
sense. The fools are in the devil's
crowd. The sensible men are on God's
sido. See an example of this : A man
made money in largo amounts. Hiswlfo
put on her llnory and started out to call.
She saw a Quo bible on the center
tablo. She had to say something. She
said , "That's a beautiful booic , what is
it ? " The lady replied , "That's the
bible. " "Ah , ' ! said the caller , "I think
I've read it a nice story ; ho married
her , didn't ho "
That woman's daughter had no souse.
She went away to school. The masters
wrote back that she could not learn any
thing she lacked the capacity. The
old man replied , "That's all right , you
buy her a capacity and I'll pay for "it. "
The llrst thing I want to Icnow when
my child is born is , has ho got good
sense'/ God only can give this and help
us to cultivate it.
If you have sound sense you will bo
saved from the vices of tht > day which
moot you at every step.
The prophet Isaiah says that the horses
and oxen in his day know moro than
mon , and this is about true to-day. A hog
wont drink beorbutsomo traveling men
will. Have the blessing of God and
common sense and you will steer clear
of the vices. And then , too , you will
have a homo of your own. God pity the
man that is like the mule at the stable
aoor , with nothing to oat and snow all
about him with "no one to love him. "
I have been happier and moro useful in
pno year since my marriage than I was
in ton before. AH a rule , an old bache
lor hasn't much sense. But the true
husband honors woman , loves little
children and is kinder to all.
If you do not roach homo oRonor than
once in six months , love some woman
and toll her so. And at the marriage
alter take the vow that binds till death ,
and Keep that vow sacred ; and thai
woman at homo will watch and pray fet
you. And I trust God may send to your
homo little children , and that you maybe
bo the happiest , gladdest man this side
of heaven. Sound sense will help In
The third quality I name
for you Is bravery. God can't use a
coward , either on the road or in the
Bravery la needed for the traveling
man , and grit of the purest quality , lit
the heat of battle Napoleon asked Mos-
sonna , "How long can you hold out1/ '
Mossonna sent back word : "I can hold
out for two hours , or for six hours , or
for twenty-four hours , or until Franco

DKADWOOD , Dale. , July 8. Messrs. 0

Shirt companyof St. Louis ; W. 1C. Mar
tin , formerly of William A. Wilson & ,
Co. , of Omaha , but now representing
IConnarn & Mhior.oigar manufacturers
of St. Joseph , and J. 0. Carson , ropro
sonting Leo , Clark tc Androoson , hard
ware merchants , of Omaha , all well
cnown nnd representative traveling
non , who frequently make the rounds
of the Black Hills , have just returned
rom Sundance , Wyo. , and they relate
an experience which would Indicate
Ifat some of the officers of justice there
are very peculiar in their ideas.
On Saturday last the above named
gentlemen , at the request of Mr. Mar-
rln , who has frequently visited Wyo-
nlng , and who represented the fishing
on Sand crook to be excellent , decided
to make n trip out to Sundance and
spend a portion of the tlmo in fishing.
Leaving Doadxvood on Saturday they
cached Boulnh , a small village just
across the Wyoming line , the following
lay about noon , whore they took dinner
at the Wheeler house , and were pro
ceeding to fish in Sand crook ,
which runs through the town.
Sir. Wheeler , the proprietor , advised
.horn that they had batter desist from
Isblng , as it was contrary to the law ,
md also told them that the proprietor
of the opposite hotel , one Sol Bunker
> y name , who was also n justice of the
loacc , might have them arrested and
cause them some trouble. The boys ,
acting uuon his advice , abandoned their
tailing project and wont in bathing ,
jut observing a small drag not on the
jank of the crook they throw it In in
iport and caught a few fish , which they
mmodiatoly released and throw back
into tlio water. Bunker's nephew and
son , having doubtless boon posted for
the purpose , were watching the pro-
. codings and reported in duo tlmo what
I/hoy saw to the old man. In thn mean-
limb the boys had gone on to Sundanco.
On Monday , while they were solicit
ing orders for their respective houses ,
Meyer Frank , of the firm ol Meyer
[ 'Yank ' & Co. , a dry goods establish
ment , wont before Justice Martin and
swore out a warrant for Mr. Wallet for
selling goods by sample without a 11-
conso. lie was arrested by the sheriff
md his deputy and taken to the police
court , where ho was fined $20 and costs ,
amounting to $ HO.'Mr.Wallettrognrding
the proceeding us unjust and entirely
unwarranted , refused to pav the line
and nskod for an appeal to the district
court of Crook county. This display of
legal knowledge on 'Mr. Wallett's part
fuvo a turn to the affair which evident
ly had not been oxpeetod , the nnrtios
thinking , undoubtedly , that their victim
would pay his line peaceably and that
110 occasion would bo given for resort
ing to arbitrary and harsh measures
which might load them onto dangerous
ground. But the cowardly piece of work
liaving once been undertaken had to bo
completed. A bond was fixed at SoOO
and pending the search by Mr. Wallott's
issociatcs for some ono to go on his
liond ho was thrust into jail and put in
Lho pen in company with a number of
liorso thieves , where ho remained for
nearly an hour.
By this time , however , a number of
the leading citizens of Sundance got
wind of what was going on , and they
lost no tlmo in denouncing the affair as
brutal and outrageous. Several of the
best citizens of Sundance , including
Todd Pottigrow , Qon Porter and W. J.
Hawkins , a wealthy euUlo man , gave
security for Mr. Wallctt's appearance.
Mr. Wallott at once engaged Messrs.
Fowler & Motz , attorneys of Sundance ,
to bring suit for SoOL)0 ) damages and
for false imprisonment against Meyer
Frank and all parties engaged in his
arrest , and the laugh now looks as if it
might turn out to bo on the other side
of the mouth. At any rate Meyer
Frank and some of the so-called otllcors
of justice of Crook county arc likely to
experience some trouble before the bus
iness is done with , for Mr. Wallett is
determined to push the matter as far as
the law will allow , and ho has consulted
a prominent attorney of Dead wood , who
will probably conduct his case for -him.
It will probably como up in the August
term of court.
But this was not all. Returning to
Beulah , on their wi > y to Dead wood , the
party were at once arrested for fishing
on Sunday , to which they pleaded
guilty , and were lined $10 , which was
paid. The boys think it extremely
probable that .ludgo Bunker pocketed
this line , but as they had considerable
fun at his honor's expense , and were
cordially invited to "havo something"
on him after courtadjournudthoy make
no kick on that score. Taken alto
gether , they think their treatment by
the civil authorities of Wyoming to
have been about as shabby and in
iquitous as they have over experienced
anywhere ii their whole career on the
road. They wish , however , to bear
witness that the respectable citizens of
Sundance were not parties to the affair ,
but on the other hand were most out
spoken in their indignation at the out
rage. W. K. MAUTIN

Louis C. Herr , representing in St.
Joseph , Mo. , the wholesale tea and
cigar house of II. C. Fisher , of Chicaga ,
left his homo as Ujual atr8 o'clock last
Wednesday morningnnd since thattimo
nothing has boon scon or heard of him
either by his.distracted wife or friends.
Tlit ) firm of H. C. Fisher was formerly
located in this city , but several years
ago removed its business to Chicago.
Three years ago Ilorr was appointed
representative of the company at this
point. Ho was supplied with samples
and a small stock of goods ,
his business being to take orders
and forward to the linn for delivery , or ,
if the order was small , fill it from the
stock ho kept on hand. In addition to
taking orders , Herr also attended to the
collections and paid all bills against tlio
lirpi incurred hero. Armond LaUorg ,
formerly a resident of St. Joseph , is
also connected with the house of II. C.
Fisher , in the capacity of bookkeeper ,
and is a personal frlond of the Herr
family , and being in Kansas City for
the Fourth , ho had received an invita
tion to visit with Herr , but
on his arrival was In formed of
that gentleman's ' disappearance. As a
member of the firm ho at once took
charge of Horr's books and in a short
time discovered n shortage of $000.
The accounts were somewhat mixed
as Herr had appropriated money
to his own I'so that ho should have
used to pay bills , at other times ho had
collected money and inbtoad of forward
ing it to his firm , had used it to pay
bills. LaBorg has boon at work
on the boolis for the past two days and
as the speculations extend over quite a
period , has not yet boon able to gel
at the exact amount. Ho dons not
think It will exceed 8900. Herr has an
interest in an estate at Moalmnicsburg ,
Ohio , that will pay the shortage , and
no effort has been made to find him ,
Horr'ti downfall was drink.

"Wo are having a hard tlmo , " said
Mr. Ailworth , "in our trade because o

Ho produced n lolfar from Mr , Wat

and in loss than a week the market

A Chapter un Hats.
"Tho man who can discover a jot black
dye fast in Its color will make a fortune. "
: t was Samuel U. Levy , a Now York
.raveling man. who made this doclara-
, ion to a BEIJ reporter yesterday while
dilating quite eloquently on the process
n hat goes through in its manufacture.
Mr. Levy represents the firm of Uonzor ,
Stern & Co. , Now. York , and is now nt
the Mlllnrd with n largo display of
sample goods for his customers to ox-
xmitio. While exhibiting two or throe
jluok dorbys , ho ran his hand over
thorn to show that the coloring would
rub off , and explained the fact that a
[ ast dye , except for brown colored hats ,
lias never been invented.
"But , " said ho , "wo will got the right
.hing some time. All the stiff and soft
'oil hats are made from the fur of an
animal. It is blown on to n cone first ,
.hen coyorod with a brass funnel and
Dolled about two hours in hot water.
This mats the fur. Then It is pounded ,
: olorod , aim put in to the block for shap-
ng and sizing. Before the finishing
.ouches are added the hat is loft in a hot
room until thoroughly dried out. The
. evolving machine with which the fur
is blown on to the cone has an instru
ment attached to It by which the opora-
.or determines just the amount to blow
'or a certain sized hat. " .
Mr. Levy has been on the road fifteen
years , and had such great success as a
salesman that the firm took him into
) artiiorship. Ho declares the business
ibis year is very good. "Omaha , which
[ visit four times a rear , " said ho , "is
always one of my biggest points , and I
Have sold an immense pile of goods hereon
on this trip. "

'j. K. QAnUATT.
Nine years ago Jack F. Garratt com
menced the pilgrimage incidental to
commercial lifo for > W. L. Parrottifc Co. ,
of Omaha , the ontorprisinsr wholesale
dealers in hats and caps , and that" ho
lias hold his plico' until now is suf
ficient evidence that he has done his
woric faithfully a'nd well. Indeed , it
would be a hard liiattor to find a more
popular salesman mdandoringthc towns
of the state than Jack , as he is familiar
ly called. Ho was born in Belleville ,
Province of Onturjti , Canada , in 1861 ,
and is therefore 23 years of ago. Jack
is a modest follow , 'yet generous to a
fault and wholly without fear. It is
said of him that while on a trip through
Iowa , a few years "ago , and while at
Spirit Lake , ho 'rescued u little girl
from drowning , at ho peril of his own
life , and refused toigivo the public his
name for fear it would get into the
papers. A brothersknijrht of the grip ,
however , chanced to bo there who
know Jack quite well , and ho gave up
his name , which so incensed him that
ho gave the Sir Knight to understand
that the only thing that saved him
from a spunking was his diminutive
size. The company ho represents has
no peer on the road in the state. Ho is
deservedly popular with the boys , und
especially with his customers , whom ho
visits regularly every sixty days.
Few traveling men are better known
throughout Nebraska and Iowa than
Charley McCargor , who represents
Aultman , Miller & Co. , of Akron , O. ,
as special agent in this state. Among
agricultural implement dealers ho is
known as the "Buckoyo man. " Charley
is about twonty-eight years of ago , and
was born near Blackvillo , Canada , on
the St , Lawrence river. Ho is deserv
edly popular wherever known , and hia
proverbial politeness has miuio him a
general favorite , not only with his cus
tomers , but with the girls whom he has
chanced to meet from place to place In
his nine years' tramp as a commercial
tourist. Ho may properly bo chibsed as
ono of the old timers on the road out of
Omaha and Council BlulTs. As Charley
tersely put it , "My escapades would fill
a good sized volume , and my size has
saved mo from many a good thrashing. "
McCargor has very few peers as a Bales-
man , and as a collector has had phe
nomenal success. A hundred dollars
would cover his losses during his entire
service with the company ho repre
sents. With the statement that ho has
been with Aultman throughout his ca-
veer as a tourist , and the class of
goods ho handles considered , something
of the romurkablcness of this state in out
becomes apparent. During the late
outing Charley was a conspicuous figure
at Cushman's park , and contributed
greatly to the pleasures of the week.
AV. I. HKIil'UUUY.
Among the most popular boys on the
road in Nebraska may bo found W.
S. Holphroy , who does the state for the
A. Booth Packing company , of Chicago ,
Baltimore and Omaha. Ho commenced
the tramp with the grip about eight
years ago for Collins , Gordon & Kay ,
and handled sporting goods for the firm
over five years. At' 'the close of his
contract with that firm , which was suc
ceeded by the Collins Gun Co. , ho engaged -
gaged with the A , Booth Packing com
pany , successfully rdpresonting it up to
this time. Holphrcy was ono of the lead
ing spirits in the Wte outing hold at
Custimnn park , and contributed greatly
to Its success. Ho lej twenty-nine years
of ago , rather undpr than over the a\or-
ago man's size , bit | ; nevertheless keen
and sagacious , and a perfect mimic. Ho
can impersonate iv , dt0 ; ken man better
than any pt-rson on earth , and ho never
drank a drop of linuoi ; in his life. When
out for a lark , us fiho boys put it. ho is
apparently the drunkonost member of
his party , to the gretit amusement of all
who nro up to his raokot. In this way
ho escapes the opportunings of passing
acquaintances and strangers to ioln in
a social glass. Few of the boys have a
wider acquaintance aiid fewer are moro
favorably known throughout the state.

tourists at the Murray yesterday , and
