Central Truth True religion bring*
fidelity not in words only, but in art*.
The Pharisees were always opposed
to Jesus. They were jealous of his in
fluence with the people, and lost no
opportunity to throw contempt on his
person and on his teaching. I hey even
accused him ot b> ing in league with
Satan, and in many ways endeavored to
turn against him the tide of popular
indignation. Kven the instances of
their hospitality, of which one is re
corded in this lesson, were hypocritical
in character, and in the hope of induc
ing him to commit himself, so that they
might find something of which to ac
cuse him.
Jesus was especially severe in his de
nunciation of this famous sect for their
bigoted devotion to mere forms and cer
emonies, while they neglected doctrines
and practices of far greater import nice
and more spiritual value. Their long
and formal prayers, their ostentatious
charities, their frequent ablutions, were
often the object ot bis animadversion,
while they themselves prided them
selves on the-e as evidences of their own
superior sanctity. 'ln this occasion our
Lord took occasion ol the invitation ot
a certain l'hurisee to dino with him,
purposely to omit the customary wash
ing before meals, which was insisted on
by the purists and formalists of the
day. Our Lord wis never guilty of
rudeness or a failure to observe the
proper courtesies of society, but in this
case he wished to teach the people that
there was no vital religion in mere cere
monial forms and rites, and that exces
sive devotion to these was a very differ
ent thing from true spiritual religion.
So be look his place at the table with
out performing th<- usual ablution,
which omission was probably remarked
upon by his ho-t and the company in a
critical and offensive manner. This led
to the stern and uncompromising re
buke which followed from our Lord.
His language seems harsh; the term
"fools" which he applied to the Fhari
aeps means rather "thoughtless ones,"
and Christ was warranted in plain
speaking to such barefaced hypocrites
as they were, who laid so much stress
on outwanl purity while so thoroughly
defiled within. His pure ami honest
soul revolted from the impious cant of
the whole tribe of sanctimonious, self
righteous purists, and he poured out
upon them the lava of his anathemas
with the holy indignation which every
sincere soul must instinctively feel for
shameless hypocrisy such as theirs.
To the humble. |>enitent sinner Jesus
was always tender, compassionate and
forgiving, but to the proud, self right
sou* and censorious he was a stern re-
sparing the "i chip qf so ill
earth," or the biting reproaches ola holy
law. which vindicated the purity of its
Divine Author, who cannot look upon
sin without the greatest abhorrence.
The Pharisees, Lawyers and Scribes
professed to bp the teachers and guides
of the people. 15ut they loaded them
down with grievous burden* of soulless
ceremonies aud vain observances, which
brought them no comfort or help, but
only aggravated the troubled souls
wh>m thev should have endeavored to
lead into the wav of peace.
It was no wonder that these men were
especially odious to the pure and loving
Haviour who came to preach the Gospel
to the poor, to heal the broken-hearted.

1. There is only one washing which
can cleanse the soul. It is the •• wash

Jesus, my God thy blood alone
Hath power sufficient to atone ;
Thy blood can make me white as •gov ;
No Jewish ty|iei could cleanse me so.
2. No amount of outward lustration

The tombs around Jerusalem were
whitewashed every year, and made thua
prominent, MI that the people, as they
traveled towards the city, might not
even accidentily eoffie into contact with
them, and thua be made ceremoniallv

nil the more offensive contrast with the
foul corruption within.

One true prayer can insure salvation :
" (tori he merciful to me a tinner."
4. The religion of self-righteousnes

6. Sin ia not extenuated by the high
position of the sinner.
No class received such scathing re
bukes from our Lord as the .Scribe* and
Pharisees, who were the most respecta

The sinner may be clad in purple or

•I 8. C\ in riillftdflphiu Record.
There are few really good talkers in
Congress—that is, men who arc dis
tinguished for their oratory and rhet
oric. Senator Conkling heads the list
as the host, lie begins his speeches
oftentimes with a question, and then
follows with the thunder. Each sen
tence is clear cut. Ho speaks delib
erately and in well chosen words,
which impress one with nn idea of
preparation, lie even follows out this
in impromptu remarks during a run
ning achate. Conk ling's speeches never
need revision. Senator Edmund* makes
his speeches and then he is done with
them. He is so careful of what he
says and does that he cau never
he picked up on an utterance. The
brilliant Matt Carpenter was always I
in u peck of trouble when .lie made a
speech. < 'arpeutcr was averse to study,
and relied upon hi* memory, which
grew to he faulty. lie always revised
his speeches, tore them to pieces and
rebuilt, interlined, crossed out and
made a frightful looking proof sheet.
Then lie always in-i-ted upon getting ,
the inc.—otiger from the printing office
"full" when the latter was sent for hi*
copy. Carpi-nti r always demoralized
the Congrr tlonnl li'mini office upon
the night wlv-n he would make a great
effort in the Senate. Judge Thurmnn's
speeches never needed revision, except!
to see if the quoted authorities were
correct. Senator Bayard i* one of
the mo.-t ph-asing speaki r* on the
Democratic side, and ho generally,
glance- over the pr< >!'* to see that no
mistakes creep in. General Burtiside
repeats himself in about every ten
sentences, and is npt to become nerv
ous. Ben Hill fires away in a sledge
hammer style of oratory, and, no mat
ter how trivial the topic may he, will
work himself up to a f< vor heat and
expend as much earnestness a* if great
things were to lie accomplished. Mor
gan, of Alabama, i* another Demo
cratic orator possessing the distinctive
peculiarities of the talker* of the
■South. A gallery lounger can tell in a
second from what section of the coun
try a speak'-r come*. The peculiari
ties of dialect arc marked in these
representative men the same as in the
lower classes of society in their vicin
ity. Over in the House Sunset < x
causes trouble to the printers. He
always prepares his speeches, and ro
vis-s them. He writes on all sorts of
paper. One page may he yellow, an
other white, a third a leaf from a book.
Then his hand writing is not letter
pre.-*; so Cox is dreaded. Kandall
revises every speech he makes. < ien
eral Harry White had a habit ol
sending for book* during debates until
his desk was littered and he could
scarcely be seen. By the time he
J found the authority desired, debate
would be exhausted, and he would
produce a scare, nothing more. Thi*
was nn old trick of White's. '1 he
most remarkable instance of the effect
of talking is that which Mr. Blount's
voice has ffpou a journalist who i*
well known here. Blount ha* the J
pure, unadult- rated Southern accent,
and i* inclined to lie harsh without
meaning it. A few year* ago a young
man who was a student at the Anna
polis academy was detected in a hazing
scrape. The matter came before Con
gre-s, and Mr. Blount made a violent
speech against the naval cadets. One
of the young men occupied a seat in
tier gallery, ami the effect of Blount'*
speech, coupled with the thought of
being dismissed from the academy,
was such that he l>ecame violently ill
and had to be carried from the capi
tol. in hi* career be branch
ed out as a journalist, ami wa* assign
ed to duty in the House gall cry. 1
Blount arose to speak, aud the recol
lections of pa*t event* came so vividly
to the young man's mind that he again
liecamc ill. He tried in vain, day j
after day, to conquer the feeling, but
it was found to be impossible. Kvcry j
time Blount iqxrke he became sick. 1
At last he was compelled to relinquish
hi* position on tin* account. Even ,
to this day that gentleman never ap- j
pear* in the House gallery for fear of!
Blount. 'lliere i* no distinctively 1
great orator in the Hon*c whmu the |
crowd* ruh in to hear speak. The 1
talking is done by some seven or eight, |
or rather wa* during the last session,
and there is no promise that the order :
of things will be changed iu the fu
ture. The great debaters are confined
to the Senate, and the crop is being
fast thinned out there. The retire
ment of Wallace, Thurman and Blninc
and the death of Carpenter took away
four of the most brilliant mcu at a
It cost* s.*>o,ooo jer year for the
mere jotting down the remark* of
the congressmen. The corps of offi
cial stenographers, both in the Senate
and the House, is probably the best in
the United .State*. What ia more, the
chief cf these arc Philndelphians who
were educated at the Central High
School. Few there aro who do not
know I). F. Murphy, the Senate re
porter. For year* his brother wa*
hi* principal assistant, but now a
young man named Shuey occupies that
petition. The plan porsflred in the
Senate differs from that of other
bodies. Mr. Murphy report* the pro
ceeding* himself and send* hi* mono
graphic notes to the transcribing
room, where they arc read off to usual
ly about a dozen young men, who
write out the copy for the printer.
Long year* of practice have been re
quirerf to at tail) a degree of proficicn
ey which would enable one writer to
read tho hurried note* of another.
Mr. Murphy ha* held hi* position for
a number of years, and litis the re
porting so admirably systematized that
there is never any trouble with the
senators' speeches. Ho receive* 8'2"),-
000 per year for the work, and out of
this pays his assistants. In the end
tho chief of the bureau receives more
salary than a Senator, hut ho must
always be on hand, and earns it. The
head of the House corp.* is Mr. John
J. McElhnnc. There are five report
ers here who receive a salary ol s>,ooo
each—the same pay a* a Congress
man. Each reporter takes "a hitch"
at tho debates, spending fifteen min
utes upon the floor, when lie retire* to
the transcribing room, reads hi* notes j
to the assistant* and then resumes hi*
place at the desk until hi* turn comes
around again. The stenographers are
appointed by the speaker, and arc
seldom changed unlcs* for good cause.
Singular us it may seem, I am told
that the Senate is the more difficult
bodv to report. There is always more i
or less confusion in tho Hon-", hut
even with this drawback reporter* pre
i fer it to the Senate. The reason i*
this: In the Senate much of the de
bate i- carried on in a conversational ,
i manner, and a reporter mu-t need
keep a sharp eye or car or he will tnis
-OIIIC of the talking that i- carried on '
iin a low tone. It i* for this reason !
that Murphy trust* the reporting to !
himself or hi* most valued a**i-tant
only. Every word uttered i* record. i,
and many a ( "iigrc-sman is surprised ,
1 the next morning to find in the I'm- I
tjre.-iional L'foril some remark which
wa- hardly intended for publication.
It requires 11 I' -olutiotl to expunge tie
annoying paragraph, a fact which
causes, members to be careful what
they say.
Industrial Instruction Abroad. ;
Ft m ou> N'rvirk A
Governor M( C'lellao, in hi* lost
and most worthy mew-age, i- very em
phatic in hi- recommendation of in
du-trial school*, and if hi* words of
wisdom are heeded a- they should be
his administration it it hud no other
, redeeming point, would thereby shine
illustriou-ly. There i- no State in tic
Union that can so easily devote all the
ne-"e**ary mean* to establish industrial
education, a* there is no State where it
would prove more profitable. It i- the
otic thing that i* lacking to round out
the enterprise* of our people, mid to
still further draw hither the capital and
j enterprise of the world. Newark, n
we have said before, should take a
lively interest in the matter, for it ha
il larger interest in manufactures than
all the rest of the State together, and
it is strange that it ha- shown so little
activity when it would add so largely
to it* future wealth and population.
Euroj>e take- the lead of the United
State* in applying *i>eriul education to
the advancement of mauu facto re*. It
will surprise many to h-arn that even
in Italy, which i* popularly supposed
Ito cultivate only la-ggar* and fruit,
, there arc technical school*, < avh -chool
or community where one i located
providing three-filths' ami the govern
ment two-fifth* of the co-t. Thi* would
seem to be a proper division, as the
State is sure to receive a hem-fit from
the promotion of any local indw*tri<-*.
1; i- in Belgium and sax niy, how v. r,
where the advantage- of these school- 1
have been in '-t apparent, and some ot j
the facta are so singular and sugges
live that a reference to the report of
an Ehgli-li investigating committee
cannot be other than interesting. It
i* well to note that no Statu in Europe
so much resembles New Jersey as Bel
gium. It depends wholly on its man
ufactures for it* wealth, and in those
it has been obliged to eont|ete with
France, Germany and England, and
it has met that competition success
fully bv applying education as the mo
live power.
There i one town in Belgium—Sc
raing—that in 1 -Hi7 contained but!
2,000 souls, all peasants ; it now has a
population of over 40,000, nearly all
engaged in the production of iron and
-teel. It ha* nn industrial and mining
school sustained by the company, with
' m arly 4<M) scholar*, while the common
schools contain about .">,OOO children,
j Education is compulsory on all who
wih to enter the employ of the com
pany. The technical schools turn out
excellent foremen, mining experts, and
scientific engineers, and the company
is therefore sure that all its employes
ran be trusted in important situations
that may l>e filled. At Ghent there is
an industrial school containing IKK)
scholars, and this large attendance i.
easily explained; preferences being
given in tho manufactories there and
elsewhere fo the pupils, and thus, in
competence being at a discount, the
ambitious naturally turn to the school
as an avenue of preferment. It may
he remarked in passing that we have
never heard of the explosion of a
boiler in Belgium through the mistnko
or ignorance of an engineer, or in the
uiisjdaremcnt of a safety valve.
The direct effect of scence applied
to industry is still more marked at
Verviers, famous for its wollen ma
chinery and yarns. The yarns spun
here are exported to Great Hritinn at
the rate of over £14,000,000 annually,
and this has been accomplished solely
through the scientific and economical
Srocesses, the result of education. In
axony the spinners of Angola yarns
absolutely buy their cotton in Eng
land, j>ay the transportation both ways,
and undersell Englaud in her own
market*. Education, technical c<lu
cution, is at the root of it all. It is
not to be wondered at that England
and Scotland nro wending over com
mittee* of their hoards of trade to
find out what the matter is. A Scotch
man from Perth -ays it is not done hy
cheap labor —the invariable excuse on
this side —but by u thorough knowl
edge of the business that the people
are working in. Every man in bis
own line is a skilled expert. Who
would credit the fact that the chemists
of Germany buy their- in tl crude
statu from London, Hull nnd Leitli,
and return it to England in the shape
of analinc and other dye stuffs? Two
establishments supply between them
2,-iOO hands, and they have sixty
I trained chemists and suits of labora
tories superior to any college.
It will not be wondered at that
England is waking up to the inqMir
tanco of learning wisdom from the ex
perience of others. The cloth makers
of ijomlon have erected a weaving
and dyeing school at an expense of
CI0,01)0, with an endowment for its
maintenance, and that is exactly what '
Newark and the Btatecombincd should
have done long ago here, only cover* j
ing a large scope of o|terations. Ivd- |
: ueation i* us cssentiul to our nianufne
tin as it i- to the pu!|Ht or the liar.
It is esseutinl to the prervatioii of
lite to have educated engineers ; it i i
education that lifts labor out of tin
common place and give- it dignity
and power. It i* education that pi
scuts us fin • china in lead of white

! the mind with beauty, and more than
all, bv widening the di-unction 1. -

Is.rd Palmer-ton had been a |

hy appointment and found he was out,
a sudden summons to the palace being
the reason of his inability to keep hi

that my lord would probably IK- hack
in an hour. "Very well," said the

with Palmerston, I'll wait. Mean

out that neither sherry nor biscuits
were to he had in the liou-c. The fact
was, hi- lord-hip kept the key of the

none. Palmer-ton came back bv and
by, ami was laughingly informed of
the incident, lleob-crvod in a rather
dry tone. "1 -h- uld think 1 did k<p

Two French savants have for the
last twelve months been keeping nine
pigs in a state of habitual drunken
ness, with a view to testing the effects
of different kinds of alcoholic liquor*: 1 '
the Prefect of the Heine hnving kindly
put up some stiles in the yard of the
municipal slaughter-house's at the dis
posal of the savants, in order that they
might conduct their interesting expe
riments at the smallest cost to them
selves. Pigs were chosen for the ex-' |
Eerirnent because of the close re-em
Innce of their digestive apparatus to i
that of man. The pig wdio takes ab- i

the nig who has brandy mixed with '
his food is cheerful all through till he [

A gentleman who left Sioux City.
lowa, a week ago, report* that two
third* of the people in Sioux City are
burning corn *i thirty cent* per bushel,
while tho railroad* are blockaded to
Yankton. Sioux Kalla, St. Paul and
< 'hie ipo direct. A party who had jus!
arrived front Sioux Kail* on the firt
train down in four week* (the track ;
being now blockaded again) brought
tidings of an even more dcapcrate state
of affair*. Tiia people have burned
everything from the lumber yards, and '
that source of fuel being exhausted
they were tearing down and consuming
shed* and barns. Further up, and es
pecially on the prairies, the suffering
wa* terrible. The hay gathered fot
stock was all used up for fuel, and ;
much stock had te-en killed to keep it ]
from (reeaing and starving. Hailrosd
ties were torn up and even telegraph
pole* rut down in place*, and fain lie*
were clubbing together to spare a liouc
or two (or fuel, in a neighborhood, after
their coal and wood had lieen used up -
and their available furniture was gone.
A train that started out with shove!
er from Pierre had to be abandoned,
•ml the tncti walked a few unles distant
ea-t and left for Huron to escape being
-moved in. .Just to give you an idea of
the drifts that are blockading the read
I will give you one illustration. The
mail carrier who brought the mail
through from Sleepy Eva to || uron>
making the trip on snow shoe*, meas
ured one drift. It wa live hundred
leet long and averaged forty seven feet
deep. At Pierre there is plenty of food
and fuel to last until the sun naise* the
snow blockade, but from Huron to Sleepy
Eye, a distance of two hundred and
sixty miles, there is a famine both ot
fuel and of food, and the suffering and
los* of life to tba unfortunate settler*
who have taken up homesteads will be
simply awful. There ia no way to reach
them with aid and heaven only know*
what the result will be. Many of these
people located between these point*
moved in last fall, built'a small house
and did not lay in a winter'a supply of
provisions, thinking thev could gel ail
the supplies they needed by going to
