Conductor Edward J. Leedom, of

on his train, was brought to, the Harris
burg asylum laBt week. It is believed
that Mr. Lredom's troubles originated
from excessive smokinr, and that with
proper care he will soon be restored to
health. At one time it was tbonght
his lungs were affected, but a critical
examination proved that such is not
the case. He was then jfut under
treatment, advised to stop smoking,
and(recovere3. Finally he resumed
the old habit, smoking as high as
twenty cigars a day, and his present
condition is attributed to nicotine
Soison. He was accompanied by G.
!. Beaver and Officer Joseph Kaucher.
At the depot in Heading he appeared
cheerful, because a telegram was
shown him supposed to be from a
friend in this city. Messrs. Beaver
and Kaucher said they had business in
Harrisburg, also, and that they'd go
along. "When to train arrived in this
city a cab was in waiting, and Mr. Lee
dom was induced to get in, and then
driven to the asylum. Conductor Lee

Tha Chinese Earthqnako.
FIFTEEN THOUSAND PEOPLE KILtBD AND
IMMENSE LOSS OF ritOrEOTV.
An Oriental mail brings some par
ticulars of tho earthquake in China
just before Christmas, whioh has been
cabled in skeleton. It proves to havo
been of appalling magnitude. Fifteen
thousand people perished in tho course
of four days, during which at uncertain
intprvals shocks continued. This es
timate is to some extent supposition
be cause it is scarcely possible, after so
tremendous a visitation, to ascertain
for awhilo tho-.cxact loss of life. How
many have been injured appears to
dfy computation, yet the capital
district of Yunnan is absolutely one
mass of ruins. Moro than five thousand
persons were killed by the fall of houses
at Lam-on, another Chineso town. The
effect on buildings bas been almost as
terrible, with tho additional horror of
the earth yearning till a frightful chasm
was produced, Irom whioh water, red
colored, was ejected. The shaking of
the earth seems to have been followed
by a subterranean convulsion of the
most awful kind. Further north, at
Lo-Chan, whero ten thousand met their
dcom, the aspect of tho country has
been completely changed. Large tracts
of land suddenly disappeared in the
course of the visitation and in their
nlace lakes formed.
Counterfeiting Postal Notes.
Tho postal note has fallen a prey t"
the counterfeiter. It was supposed,
when this note was designed, that it
could not be readily imitated. A young
man in the auditor's office in Washing-'
ton was the first to perpetrate a frand
with the notes. He changed several
of thoso that had been canceled, and
had them cashed, ne was discovered
and punished. Since this there have
been several counterfeits placed in cir
culation, and tho manufacturers of
tbem have not been discovered by the
secret service officers. The govern
ment is not .responsible for the loss or
destruction of the postal note ; and if
any are lost, like postage stamps, there
is hardly any means of tracing them.
The postal note is quite a popular mode
of transmitting money through the
mails, and there should he more safe
guards to prevent it from being coun
terfeited. Devwrest's Monthly for

Notes. '.amps, torches. No oil, no grace.
Oil with their Jm, grac-e should go with a
profession. Tnrrlwl, the Iord will not come

enough for you, no one can supply grace for
Another's nerd. Door ihut, ns much for the
comfort and security of thorn within as for
the exclusion of those without. Watch
therefore, this Is the scope and design of tho
whole parable. The central thought of this
lesson Is that we must bo always ready for
the Lord's coming. Are wol
V. 1. The number "ten" would seem to be
the perfect number of secular lif e, ns "seven"
Is of the spiritual life. It may "hare orig
inated In Uie arithmetic of the ten fingers."
Ten formed a Jewish comany, ten ate the
Passover together, ten Jews in one place
formed a congregation to build a synagogue,
there were ten commandments, etc. This
number would seem to refer to church as it
ajpears to the world. The number live would
seem to teach half consummation, tho Angers
of only one hand, the five senses without the
five mental faculties, or vice versa.
The parable is based upon the marriage
customs of tho east. The bridegroom went,
late In tho evening, attended by Ida friends,
or "groomsmen," to the bride's dwelling,
where she awaited him, attired in white
robes, decked with jewels and attended by
her bridemaids. The whole company then
invited guests (tue virgins In the parable)
with torches. When the bridegroom a hou.o
was reached the train of friends anil guesta
entered and the doors were shut, debarring
any one's entrance that would come later.
Lamps were absolutely needed by each one
In the dork street of an Asiatic city. In
modern Jerusalem the authorities require
every one to carry a lamp.
While the virgins symbolize the whole
Church of Christ, the lamp would seem to
represent the outward profession of Chris
tianity. The "oil" stands for the spiritual
Ufe and grace In the soul. The "flame" of
the lamp typifies the outshining of holy life,
fed and nourished by grace. Of course the
"bridegroom" is none other than Christ
coming to this world for his bride, the
V, 2. The numbers moke nothing to the
case, only the division Is essential The
church At Christ's coming, as now, will con
sist of the two classes, the nominal and real
Christians. The wise and foolish are undls
tingulshable until the crisis comes.
V, 3. In the case of the foolish virgins the
taxing of the lamps is everything, but the
wise seem most concerned about taking oil in
their vessels. Borne are anxious about the
profession and forms of religion. Better be
concerned about having grace in the heart.
V. 6. Allusion is made to a longer delay
of the Lord's coming than believers reckoned.
While the bridegroom tarried they all, both
wise and foolish virgins slept. The word
"slumbered" "signifies drowsiness, nodding,
while "slept" describes the full unconscious
ness of sleep. Two stages of spiritual declen
sion may possibly be indicated. But there
appears no censure for their sleeping; It was
not interpreted as unwatchfulness, It was not
a guilty sleep.

wrong could not be madeight, aherald,qr ,

oing the approach of the bridegroom. The
midnight fur the Church of Christ Is when
lbs worldly spirit Is, so far In the ascendancy ,
as to make it seem that" the whole church has
fallen Into Vkt common .course of the "world,
and wheu the trtttn of Christ fet traduced and
east aside by,the.znass pf men. Such mid
nights of Christian' history there have been
followed by a coming of the bridegroom.
y. 7. Snatches of the Joyous muslo were
already falling on their ears. Excitement
was rising Into enthusiasm. The virgins
"all arose." The trimming of the lamps im
plied the infusion, of fresh oil and the re
moval of the fungi which had gathered
around and was clogging the wick. Belt ex
amination and renewal of grace seems to be
V. 8. The religion of Impulse, of excite
ment,, pf mere forms, of only a profession,
fails. In the hour of need. Unable to re
kindle their lamps in the crucial hour, (heir
joy and hope are also extinguished,

ferable. There are times when prudence has
the appearance of selfishness. To have di
vided the oil would have involved all In

procession. -No one can supply grace for
V. 10. We cannot prepare for the crisis at
the moment Jt took the virgins longer at
this unseasonable hour to buy, oil than at any
Other time. There is a special time when a
duty may be easiest done,
Those who were prepared, who were ready
with burning lamps and with hearts lighted
up .with joy, went in with the bridgroom into
the banqueting house. Then "the door was
shut" Light and Joy Inside, sorrow and
darkness without "Almost saved, but lobt."
We shut the door ourselves by neglecting to
be prepared to enter.
V. 11. The foolish virgins returned as
Esau, too late for the blessing which no tears
could give him. There Is a time coming
when it will be too late tor even prayer.

It Is possible that he may have been paid
for bringing purchasers to this shop, but the
price I paid for what I bought was so, small
that there could not have been much profit
