OBSTACLES TO TKUE FEIENDSHIP.
Sensitiveness Always a Misfortune and
Sometimes a Crime.
AN APPEAL FOE WOMAN'S INFLUENCE
E MACE, friends.
zpy and our friends mate
us. "What we -want
to know is how to
make good friends,
and how to bring it
about that onr friends
shall make us good.
tMHnfc-iii -tie nas gone a long
t wav toward makinc
the most of life, who has plenty of good
friends. 'Whether we "make the most of life,
or the least of it, depends greatly upon
the character of our friends.
"A. man that hath Iriends must show him
self friendly." This would he jnst as true,
andwonld stand somewhat nearer to our
starting point if it read: A. man that de
sires to have friends must show himself
friendly. If you have no friends, it is your
own fault. If you have few friends, the
fault is your own. Be yourself a friend.
Show yourself friendly. CultiTate the
friendly spirit. Then you cannot help hav
Some one has said that the best rale for
fathers and mothers who wish their children
to grow up into gentle, cultured and Chris
tian men and women is, improve yourself.
That is a good rule for making friends. Im
prove yourself. Strive to keep a kindly and
helpful temper. Do not make random and
foolish criticisms. "Do not let familiarity
swallow up courtesv."
Be yourself such an one that your friend
ship will be worth having. Be always
watchful of an opportunity to contribute
something to the pleasure of those in whose
company you find yourself. So develop
whatever graces God has given you, so store
your heart with kindly and generous Im
pulses, and your mind with wise, interesting
and helplul thoughts, that people may find
it both a pleasure and a profit to be with
you. Then you will have friends.
Just here fits in a comment npon one of
the diseases of friendship. The name of it
is sensitiveness. Sensitiveness is always a
misfortune. It is sometimes a sin. It is a
kind of self-consciousness. .And self-consciousness
is one of the most uncomfortable
ailments of our social life.
WORST OF THE THKEE.
Grant Alien said that if it were put into
his hands to abolish out of this human life
either plague, pestilence or self-conscions-ness,
he would put self-consciousness out
first, as being really the cause of a greater
amount of misery. In its milder form self
consciousness is an acute realization of the
possession of hands and feet, and entire
ignorance as to what to do with them. In
severer phases the sufferer imagines that
every two people whom he sees talking
together are talking abont him. Such self
consciousness is a misfortune, and should be
persistently fought against like stammering
or any physical defect.
Sensitiveness is sometimes a sin. It is
then a phase of selfishness. The person who
is thus sensitive puts self in between him
and hisiriends. Ton cannot cultivate the
friendly spirit and at the same time be over
sensitive. Sensitiveness makes friendship
ill at ease. Your friend knows perfectly
well that yonr imagination is on the alert
day and night to persuade you that he has
neglected, or slighted, or insulted yon. He
is afraid" to speak above his Ifteath lestf-he
shall hurt your tender feelings.
Hake a diagnosis of this disease of friend
ship and you will find that it is a very un
pleasant disorder. It is partly pride. You
are thinking too much about yourself. It
is 'partly suspicion. You distrust your
friend. You are not willing to put genuine
and unhesitating confidence in him. I do
not know many things which are more an
tagonistic to true friendship than very much
pride and very little faith.
FORGET TOUESELF. '
I do not know what true friendship can
he held to mean, unless it implies, at the
very least, that you forget yourself and ad
mire and trust your friend. I cannot see
what friendship is good for, or how it can
deserve its honorable name, unless it leads

yon, at once and in full confidence, to put
the friendliest construction upon whatever
yonr friend does and says.
Bnt if you are over sensitive von do not
do this. You make your friend feel that
you do not trust him; that 's, you are no
true friend yourself. He that desires to
have friends must show himself friendly.
He that hath friends must, not only for his
own sake, but for their sates, show hinself
friendly. The world is made up of two
kinds of people the active and the passive,
the leaders and the led. Those who have
opinions ot their own and those who borrow
the opinions of others; those who influence
and those who are influenced.
"Why should you be content to be num
bered among the passive, the dependent, the
inferior? "Why should you not definitely
endeavor to do good, and to lead, to have in
fluence, to help somebody? "We have most
influence over our friends. Thus friendship
is an opportunity. You gain iriends, as I
said, by showing yourself friendly. But
you must not stop there. Be a true friend.
Be a friend who Helps his friend.
-4. PURPOSE Kf AM. THINGS.
Use your friendship, then, as opportunity.
One of the discoveries of modern science is
the use of beauty. There is no grace and
loveliness in the whole world, in bird or
blossom, in plant or clanet, but has a use
and meaning which its beauty serves. All
that is attractive is attractive for a purpose.
God has put that into vour being which
calls friends about you. He has given you
grace, strength, wisdom, ability, beauty;
and these mean use, purpose, opportunity.
Translate friendship into opportunity.
Do not be contenttill you have made your
friend as wise, as cultured, as high-minded,
and as Christian as yon are yourself. No
body can help a friend like a friend. From
no other can kindly criticism come so graci
ously. Improve yourself, that is the first rule of
friendship. If you keep that, you will never
lack for friends. Improve your lriend.
That is the second rule. If you keep tbat,
your friendship will be worth having.
I desire to apply this second rue more
closely, in its religions bearings.
Suppose you are the friend of one who is
not a Christian. Your friend's character
and destiny lie, to a great extent, in your
hand. No minister of God, be he never so
eloquent, earnest, or persuasive, can influ
ence your friend as you can. He will read
the boots you give him. He will listen
with respect to the words you say. The
minister is very Iikely,in his eyes, an eccle
siastical offieial. He gets a salary for sav
ing so many souls a year, or for preaching
so many sermons. That is his business.
But your friend will know that your words
come out of your heart.
A friend's influence.
Becanse he likes you, he has already
begun to like your creed. Speak to him
then, if you bave opportunity, concerning
those high truths which we call "religion."
Or, if not that for I have no doubt that as
many people have been spiritually harmed
by too much preaching, as by too little if
not that, snow him at least by your life and
conversation, by your devotion and earnest
ness, by what you do and say, and by what
you retrain from doing or saying, what a
good Christian is. Show him, by the silent
sermons ot example, what Cbnst can do in
onr common daily living to make life richer,
brighter and better. God holds everybody
responsible for his friends.
Never has the Christian religion needed
preaching as it does in this land to-day.
The future of our country, the permanence
of our institutions, the destiny of our civil
ration, depend to-day upon the religion of
Christ. The enemies which assail the pros
perity and peace and Jiberty of this nation
ignorant and infidel immigration, intem
perance, anarchy, the mercenary and ma
terialistic spirit, the heaping together of
great masses of moral and social dynamite
in our immense cities from these no legis
lation can save us; these no act of pro
hibition can prohibit.
From snch as these the police and the
militia can protect us bnt for an hour or a
day. These are evils of the heart There
is no permanent defense against them ex
cept the religion of the Lord Jesus Christ,
Block the path of danger with the moun
tain of the beatitudes. Arm the soldiers
with the trusty armor of God. "Write up
over the doors of legislative assemblies
what they wrote in Savonarola's dav on the
town hall in Florence "Christ is "King!"
This alone can give us peace.
THE AMEBIC AN FUTURE. -
Accordingly, the future of the United
States of America depends upon Ms religions
and Christian citizens. There is no one so
humble, but he can do his part. The ene
mies of our civilization are growing
stronger; we must strengthen the defenses.
"We must make the Christian religion
stronger. "We must ourselves be Christians
first, to the bottom of our hearts, and then
we must make onr friends Christians.
Every young girl who listens with amuse
ment to a young man's confession of un
belief, or who takes it lightly or cheerfully
for granted tbat men are not interested in
religion, care little for church-going and

A Boon for Suffering Woman.
If there are times in life tbat try men's
souls, there are also times that try women's
souls. As woman's organization in general
is more delicate than man's, so she has spe
cial functions ot a far more delicate charac
ter, which render her much more liable to
derangement and disease, and which require
much more skillful and careful treatment.
No class of diseases tests a physician's skill
or a medicine's efficacy more severely than
female diseases. No medicine has ever
proved itself more snccesslul in the cure of
such diseasbs than Pe-ru-na. In that most
trying of periods, which every middle-aged
woman must pass through, Pe-ru-na has
proved a true boon to the sex. "I had been
a great sufferer for three vcars," writes Mrs.
S. Smith, of Hillsville, Pa. "I had given
up all hope, when I commenced taking Pe-ru-na
and Man-a-lin. Now I am as well as
ever in my life." Regulate the bowels with
JIan-a-lin. For sale by all druggists.
This drama contains more human inter

tender home pictures than any play on the
American stage. The story is simple, bnt

putting this company on the road has been
a secondary consideration. The result is

HE Eev. Dr. Dorches
ter is our most eminent
statistician. At vast
expense of labor and
money he has brought
onr religious statistics
down.to the end of 1886.
He says: "The subject
of the growth of the
evangelical churches of
theUmteu states is one of increasing inter
est to the American pnblic and also to the
world. In our country Christianity, and
especially the form known as Evangelical
Protestantism, has been called to compete
with sharply contesting forces, and all sorts
of opinions and predictions have been ut
tered as to the results otthe struggle."
Onr present population is estimated at
58,420,000. Domiciled among and vigorously
at work upon these millions are 112,744 Evan
gelical Protestant Churches, with 83,845
ordained ministers' and 12,132,651 members
in full communion. There ts now one Evan
gelical Protestant Church in 518 inhabit
ants, and one ordained minister in 692 in
habitants. From 1850 to 1866 the popula
tion increased 152 per cent, but the church
members increased 243 per cent. The most
appropriate comment on these exhibits is

Character la Wealth.
Character is the only interest worthy of
the absorbing attention of thoughtful men
and women. Because character is the only
permanent form of wealth the only curren
cy that can be funded here and used here
after. .Lands, houses, railroad stocks, bank
stocks, Government bonds fall away from
us, and naked ss we came into the world so
naked we go out of it, stripped bare of all
outward possessions. Shrouds have no pock
ets. But those Inward possessions which are
constructed out of thought, purpose, feeling,
will, pass over with us into the mysterious be
yond and abide.
Hence it is that, as Humboldt has reminded
us, churches, schools, science, literature are of
value not only nor chiefly because they
minister to physical welfare, bnt because they
are the scaffolding by means' of which God
builds up the human soul. -
Character Is what we are: rcontation Is onlv
what men say we are. Being our essential self,
character is superior to all that is external to
all accidents and circumstances. "Sir Philip
Sidney, the Earl of Essex, Hir Walter Raleigh,
are men of great figure bnt few deeds, we
cannot find the smallest Dart of thn nnrsonal
. weight of Washington, in the narrative of his
exploits, 'xnis inequality oi the reputation to
the works or anecdotes, fsuot accounted for by
the saying that the reverberation lslonger than
the thunderclap; but somewhat resided in
these men which begot an expectation that
outran all their performance. The largest part
of their power was latent. This Is that which
we call character a reserved force which acts
directly by presence,"-
Put a man of character down anywhere, sur
roundhim by whatever untoward conditions and
straightway he accomplishes by mere presence
what others achieve only by labor, address and
much ado. "Oh, Igle. bow did you know tbat
Hercules was a God?" "Because," answers
lole, "X was content the moment my eyes fell
on him. When I beheld Theseus I desired that
I might see him offer battle, or at least guide
bis horse in the chariot race; but Hercnles did
not wait for contest: he conquered whether he
stood, or walked, or sat, or whatever thing be
Friend, with all thy getting!, get character.
This is the supreme thing. It shall make thee
a playfellow of the original laws of the world.
The Grand Old Jttan.
The most remarkable man of onr time is the
Hon. W. E. Gladstone great in statesmanship,
great in finance (he won Ills spurs of political
knighthood as Chancellor of the Exchequer),
great in oratory, greatest ot Jill in literature.
How this octogenarian finds time to do so
much, and to do everything so well, is a mys
tery. He has recently published an article on "The
Futnre of the English-speaking Races." It
reads like a chapter la the "Arabian Nights."
One hundred years ago," the English-speaking
peoples of the world numbered 15,000,000.
These were distributed thus: In Great Britain,
12.000,000; iq America and other foreicn lands,
3,000.000. To-day the number has multiplied
seven-fold, and stands at 105.000,000. Mr. Glad -stone
quotes the eminent statistician, Barham
Zincke, as authority for the statement that a
century hence the "Encrllsh speakers of the
globe will number 1.000,000,000; distributed as
follows, viz: In the British Islands, 70,000,000;

According to the New York Berald, a tem

in Denver, CoL, that a law ought tpbe passed

The assemblage immediately walked out of

Our EdacntlonnI System.
An expert, whose name Is known aronnd the
globe, pens the following criticism upon the
current educational system of the country:
"It lacks truth and nature. We are stndents
of words; we are shut up In schools, and col
leges, and recitation rooms for 10 or 15 years,
and come out at last with a bag of wind, a
memory of words, and do not know a thing.
We do not know.an edible root in the woods, we
cannot tell our course by the stars, nor the
hour of the day by the sun. We are afraid of a
horse, of a cow, of a dog, ot a snake, of a
spider. The Roman rnle was to teach a boy
nothing that he could not learn standing. The
old English rule was, 'All summer jn the field,
and all winter in the study.' And it seems as

mental also. The sight of a planet through a
telescope, Is worth all the course on astron

better than volnmes of chemistry."

The successful crank is a genius. The un

America is the paradise of women. Nowhere
else are they made so much of and so deferred
to. In Holland, not long ago, was a woman,
and with her a mule dragging a canal boat, on
the deck of which was a man busily engaged In
holding a chair down and smoking a long clay
pipe. Would a canal conducted on that plan
pay in the United States? Ask your mother or
yonr wife and then dodge behind the door.
The women abroad monopolize the brawn.
In Germany and Italy they till the ground. In
Switzerland they fasten the lake steamers to
the wharf and lug the baggage on and off the
b iats. In France they are the shopkeepers; the
men are in the army and play the role of Capt
ain Jinks. "By Jingo" is a masculine phrase
with a masculine reference. Yonder is a good
