before a large nnd evidently n very npprccln-
The rovorcnd lecturer bcjan by giving
n graphic description of the struggles
and trials of cjiristlnnlty in the
flrst century of Its existence.
"Nineteen hundred years npo , " said the
lecturer , "there came n sound from heaven
of strange , mystical melody , a sound com *
pared with which oven ttio muslu of nngoU ,
prostrated heforo the throne of God , Is as
nothing ; a sound throbbing with the spirit
of God , and It came to brood over the
church. From that moment there appeared
In the history of the world a new race of
heroes. The name of Jesus rose nbovo the
\vrcclt of Homan paganism.
"Outof that dlvlno name and the dlvlno
truth which It rovers two organisms were
horn , ono dlvlno In Its life , and , through that
divine organism cauio ncallng for
every wounded soul. It was not n divine
organism established to create material
com fort or to widen the means of material
happiness. Wo do not rend In the commis
sion of the apostles that they wcro ever
sent to build n railroad from Joppa to
Jerusalem. Hut Its mission was to nmko
men worthy citizens ot heaven.
No\v , akin to that flrstorganism Is another
sprung Irom Its life , receiving all its
form , Us shape , Its color , Its literature ,
Its art , 1U science , solely from the
dlvlno power of the nomu of .Jesus and
from the divine organism , nnd thiit is the
Catholic church , the organism of tha living
God , Ono was an eternal society , the other
was its earthly counterpart. * Thu world ac
cepted the name of Jesus ns the
shibboleth of salvation , and In return there
was horn of that name n Christian common
wealth. All Europe , the world accepted thu
divinity of .Icsus Christ. H was a p.iciin of
Joy for till the Ills that flesh is air to.
What was the work upon society wrought ,
for llftccn centuries lu tlio name of Jesus I It
took the pngnn law nntl It stripped that law
of its despotism and It clothed It with the
etmrity of Jesus. As Emerson hits well said ,
'The principles of the Cathuilu faith und the
doctrines of tlio Catholic church , teaching a
dlvlno legislator ruling all , was the proclama
tion of the flrst principles of democracy that
found n home. ' It took the poor and
In the namu of Jesus It clothed them with
the purple of Its divinity , und It told the
rich in n clear , emphatic , never wavering
voice that the poor had n right to u portion
of the wealth of which God had made them
the custodians. It wipea out the badge of
degrcdatlon from poverty nnd the stamp of
servility from the brow of the workincmnn.
It clothed both with dignity and it preached
divine ciiuallty In the name of Jesus. It
silenced with Its volco of truth the errors of
humanity as It silenced , with love , the long ,
unnbatod cry of the poor. It broke the fet
ters of Ignornnco with its wisdom
us it broke with its love the
fetters of the slave. It took the
lost of mankind , the pariah , ono of the pro
letariat and it put upon his brow the U lad cm
heforo whom kings bow ; the diadem of the
liguro of Christ giving to him the power of
the name and all the authority of the divin
ity of Christ. It leveled all castes. Thcro
was neither Greek nor Gentile. The work
of Jesus was twofold in its character , bless
ings upon the individual nnd benedictions
without number on the community.
" 13ut there came u sad hour , the most do-
plorabio iu the history of the world since pa
ganism went down with its rottinc garments ,
an hour when supernatural authority was
dcniPd In the world. "
The speaker then dwelt upon the rise and
progress of the reformation , Introducing in
Ills reference the statement that God sought
for u man to rebuild the bulwarks of Chris
tian faith , to rokmdlo tlio ( lame of learning
and to organize a band of heroes who would
stem the tide of heresy nnd open up new
lands and now Holds of labor. That man
was found in Ignatius Loyola , and that
serried phalanx was found la tlio company
Speaking of St. Ignatius , ho said : "Iteared
in luxury , nurtured in indolence , fondled in
a court , bred to the science of arms , it
seemed n pgor beginning for a saint four
elements out of which Vo shnpo n Christian
hero. Hut God saw in the calm , cold intel
lect of St. Ignatius , joined to that magnetic
power over the uUcctlons of men , a leader
who would nguin 1111 the weak places of earth
with the llrcs of virtue , who would again
lift up the human mind in its soaring after
knowledge. Iln found one who would not
only leave his mark on earth , but ivould
leave the stamp of divinity on his own brow ,
nnd his name as nn heirloom for generations
of hi * company until tlio end ot time. "

eight miles between there nnd Toledo.
IIo started to siirnnl for the crossing ,
just this side of the trees , when , horror !
no saw a farmer drive furiously towuud
it as if to cross ahead of the ttain.
It was suicide !
Dimmiek sent out ti heart-breaking
signal to the hrakoman , reversed the
engine , put on air-brakes , knowing all
the time the train could not bo stopped
this side of the crossing , and then shut
his eyes and prayed.
When the onirino stopped n part of
the wagon was -on the headlight , the
horses were distributed along the truck ,
and two old people were lying near the
Dimmiek was the first to reach them.
They both breathed. Was there n , phys

hurt ; the woman probably bo.
They were tenderly carried to Mr.
Richards' house near by and the physi
cians were told that if they would stay
until the local practioner wtia found a
locomotive would bo sent back for them
in an hour. They agreed to stay. The
bell rang ; travelers hurried to their
places ; some- with white faces at the
thought that it might have been them
selves ; others full of the importance a
participation in the event would give
them and their story , and others , for
getting themselves , thinking only of
the sorrow brought to others.
Mr. Richards placed his house at the
command of the physicians. Stimulants
were administered nnd when the fami
ly doctor and the children of the sulTer-
c'rs had arrived the father was moaning ,
but the mother had opened her eyes.
Late in the nigh * , , after hours of
faithful and incessant labor over them ,
the mother spoke.
"How is father ? "
' 'Ho is still unconscious , but is well
taken care of. Hero is something for
you : now don't worry ; don't think ; just
go to sleep again. " Her son spoke to

"You mustn't think of it , mother.
You are very badly hurt yourself. You

"I must goto father , ho needs mo. "
The physician looked at her keenly ,
saying , in a low tpno , to the son : ' 'I

The son coaxed nnd argued with her.
but it was of no avail. They moved her
bed bortide her husband's ; she attempt
ed to take his hand , but could not. His
stuntorlous breathing seemed to malone
no impression upon hor.
"Is father going to die ? " she nskcd.
The weeping daughter nodded. "You
must keep quiet for your own sake ,
"Wo'vo been married over forty-eight
years , ' ' she said to the doctor , "but
wo'vo known each other all our lives. "
"You mustn't ' talk , mother. "
"Wo was raised side by side ; ho took

The son put his hand on her lips to
silence her , but the doctor whispered :

The gray-hairod husband loomed to
hear her call ; ho opened his eyes ,
breathed loss noisily , struggled with his
voice , and then manuged to whisper :

her eyes to her daughter , "put my bund

They laid her poor .vrinklod hand on

General Operations Itiillnc Moderate

Iron No Now Kent urea
The IlusincHs World. "
HOSTON , Oct. 27. The general tone of the
Iron market continues firm , with the tend
ency still upward. The feature of the mar
ket has been the exportation of pig iron , sev
eral transactions In this respect being re
ported during the past week. Now York re
ports say that the Thomas iron company has
made n sale of GOO tons of pig Iron for export
to Mexico , the shipment of which is already
under way. The same company has been ne
gotiating for the sale of 1,000 tons in Eng
land , anil , It Is said , would hare succeeded
ere this but for Inability to sccuro freight ac
commodation on the regular Una steamers.
Several lots of Ohio pig are said to have been
sold In Canada in competition with Scotch
Iron. The general outlook Is stronger , the
homo demand for both foundry and , mill pig
ruling active , revealing mixioty on the part
of many consumers to have orders booked'
now that a general advance m prices ,
to tnko effect next month , is found to bo a
certainty. Sellers who have n first-class
article to deliver within the next seventy
days arc very Indifferent mid refusing to sell
at less than $18 for No. 1 X , J17 for No. 2 X ,
or $10 for grey forgo. Some southern brands
are quoted at 00cgf ( 1 under these prices , but
the makes that consumers seem content to
take are extremely difficult to obtain for de
livery this .vcur , and the Kinds that are of
fered at the bottom figures quoted nro
mainly these ttint nro taken only when
buyers hnvo no alternative than to put up
with that clasH of Iron. Sotno contracts have
been made for certain of the most popular
brands for 1&90 delivery at the udvanccd
Dealers hero say Una the demand for pig
iron is much better now than it has been be
fore this year. Most of the loading
makes of Ohio iron nro now practically out
of the market , furnace men having no moro
to sell. Offerings of Pennsylvania
grades are also light nnd buyers can
only pick up limited quantities. Dealers say
thut not only do thpy have trouble in buying
supplies , but they also And it dinicult to get
their former purchases delivered. The fur
naces are busy , and notwithstanding the
fact thut the output this year will bo the
largest over known , It now looks as though
this largo production would ' bo completely
absorbed. The fact that' the competition
with Scotch iron is now dono'awuy with ,
owing to the high prices ruling abroad ,
makes the demand for American iron so
much greater , while the fact that an outlet
for our iron abroad Is opening up makes the
outlook so much moro fuvprublo.
Bar iron is still meeting 'with a quiet de
mand , although the strong tone nnd higher
prices asited at the producing centres of the
west causes values to bo Iicld firm. The
machine shops arc busy and nro using con
siderable iron , but no ono has yet attempted
to go In very heavy in their purchases. The
market is In such u dcllcata position at pres
ent that a largo order would undauntedly
start prices up very materially , but in the
quiet ways that buyers tu-s , operating , they
arc able to get supplies at .lout week's rates.
Swedish iron is llrm , and with conditions
showing still moro strength abroad , the out
look is for a still further advance in values
hero. Dealers only quote on spec-mentions
now , no open quotations being givcu. Steam
piping and plumbing supplies generally are
in a linn position with the mills well sup
plied with orders. Boiler tubes also hold
All branches of the steel market are firm ,
nnd eastern buyers have to pay higher rates
on sonio grades than even a wock ago. Now
York reports say that the stool trade , while
not dlsulaylng quito the degree of excite
ment that prevailed last week , is still active
nnd pricesjire very strong all along the lino.
Some contracts for moderate quantities of
rails have been closed at * 32 f. o. b. ut east
ern mills , .but larco buyers seem rather hesi
tant about closing , although having options
on round lots , despite the representations of
manufacturers regarding the extent to
which the capacity of the mills is under the
control of orders and the oxtroma high cost
of crude materials generally. In the Pitts-
burg market billets and slabs are up to $34
(335. ( wire rods to $ ! 0 and other productions
relatively as high , whilst prices at mills in
other localities employed on these commod
ities are of corresponding level.
Tank plates nro quoted higher from the
mills and the general situation for both steel
and iron paltcs is stronger. Sheet iron holds
firm and sales are active at full prices.
Blacksmiths' supplies nro steady.
Old rails are still in a nominal condition ,
with no transactions reported. There is a
fair quantity of rails hold bv several of the
eastern roads , but the views of buyers and
sellers are still too far apart to result in any
business. The roads nominally ask ? 25 ,
while with bar Iron at its present prlco mill-
men are not bidding above $23.50. Old scrap
iron is quiet , but the mills are picking up lots
from tlmo to time , with prices ranging as to
The nail markqjt continues llrm with the

The high price of wire nails makes tlitvout-

The copper market is steady with a largo

Mr. Ilcrmnn Kounlzo SnyR Thnt the
Money Market \ \ ill UD Knsy.
Mr. Herman Kountzo has just returned
from the cast. In the course of n short in
terview ho commented upon the money mar
ket there nnd said that bankers whom hemet
met , including the bend of ono of the largest
national banks there as well as the members
of the firm of Kountzo Bros. , wcro Inclined
to the opinion that money would bo fairly
easy during the ensuing fall and winter. Ho
said that legitimate demands from parties In
Whom bankers had conlldunco would bo
freely mot. Some of the Now York bankers
have been loaning heavily on cotton nnd
other southern products which ai-o on
their way to market nnd the loans nro now
being returned , so that money is caster

that the rullnir rate of Interest charged by
the banks to the merchants of Omaha was 10
per cent , In ndvanco. .Mr. Kount7e , after
reading un article In the commercial column
of TIIU SUNDA.V linn , endorsed the latter as
eiving the situation correctly. Ho in
cidentally remarked that but few sound nnd
solvent concerns paid over 8 per
cent to Omaha banks for money nnd that
favors were very liberal in amount. Ho
Instanced a case whore jobbers here had
been accommodated with loans In amount in
excess of tholr whole capital. "It is a re
flection upon the traders of the city to pub
lish as facts the wild assertions contained In
the World-Herald's article , " ho saiJ , "wiien
soven-olghttis of the merchants of Oamhu
can contradict them irom their own knowl
edge and experience. "
"Tho ruling rate to sound merchants for
bank loans In Omaha Is 8 per cent the year
round , and when mouoy is plentiful 7 per
cent. This is cheaper money tnaii 0 per cent

General GbroutcliolT , the chief of the
gonorul stivtr of the Russian nriny , sub-
inittcd to the czar last summer a report
urging that a second line of rail bo laid
to tlioyostorn frontier. In spite of the
opposition of the minister of tlnnnco the
proposal is being carried out. Eight
million loads of rails and 300 locomo
tives have been ordered for delivery in
May. This measure completes the
strategic network of Russian railwi.vs ,
increasintr their capacity to mass troops
on the German frontier.
How to Cure ft Colil.
Many years constant use and the ex

lieves the lungs , liquefies the tough
tenacious mucus , ranking it easier to
expectorate , and restores the system to
u strong and healthy condition.
