TEXT: "My heart shall not reproach mo
so long as I live."—Job, xxvii., 6.
It is very important that your heart or
conscience shall not accuse you. Your
happiness does not depend on anybody
else's conscience or heart, but on yourown.
God gave you a conscience, with the com
mand that you should follow Its behests,
and when you get into the other world that
conscience will be your judge. In other
words, God will not judge you, but you will
It is your conscience that makes you an
individual, which spiritually isolates you;
and its approval is worth more than the
approval of all the world beside. You can
not go fnr wrong if you always do what you
think is right. You may ask advice, but
you should decide for yourself what it is
best to do, and then do it, whether people
blame or praise. If every one were to fol
low this rule we should have a large differ
ence of opinion among men, but above it a
divine harmony of purpose. When the
millennium comes we shall not all think
alike, neither shall we allow any one to do
our thinking for us, but we shall think for
ourselves until thinking changes to con
viction. Then we shall follow our convio
tions as we follow the flag of our country,
and hold to them and be true to them, and
«o win the smile of God.
What you need most of all is to bo your
best, truest and noblest self. For tnat
end you came into tho world, and unless
you accomplish that end your life will be
essentially a failure and the requirements
of the Almighty will stand negleoted.
Men may call you heretical, but what
men say of you is of no importance in com
parison with what God will say. Your
business is to be on His side, and to bo sure
in you. heart that He is on your side. If,
after that, people agree with you, you may
well rejoice, but if they do not, that is their
affair and not yours. Yctur duty is what
you think your duty is after the enlighten
ment or illumination which always comes
to him who is in accord with tho Holy
Spirit of tho universe, and thus breathes
the atmosphere of the spiritual life. To
that duty you should never be falso, for it
is what makes you n living soul, what
forges nobility of character, what opens
the door of communication with tho other
world, what gives you a claim to the as
sistance of the angels and assures you of
the helping baud of the Most High. Not
ha is religious, in any wide souse, who is
merely the shadow of some one else's
mind, but he who casts his own shadow,
because he is a solid substance on which
the sun shines.
This is a very queer world In ono respect.
We like to be sheop and follow a bell
wether. Even in matters ot dress wo must
needs be told what to wear, and whether it
is comely or uncomely we wear it. In the
matter of religion there is as much fashion
as there is in dress. What the majority be
lieve we try to believe, because it issoeasy
togo with the majority. If ft does not
commend itself to our judgment we secret
ly dissent, but openly approve. This in
troduces an element of hypocrisy into the
Holy of Holies, demoralizes mind and heart,
forces from us our self-respect, aud de
prives us of heavenly recognition and ap
proval. Our vital energy is sapped, our
manliness and womanliness aro injured, un
less wo can say of an opinion, I made it my
self, and it is therefore mine.
In this matter of belief, of religious be
lief, you are to search for tho truth—Hod's
truth, Christ's truth, eternal truth. You
are to dive iuto tho depths of your soul,
and what you bring therefrom Is to be tho
foundation on which to build your life and
character. The world may say nay or it
may say yea, it makes no difference; you
ure to bo governed solely by God's.yea and
nay as the words are whispered in your ear
by Him who reveals Himself to every man,
during every day aud hour of his llfo. You
may not get at tho whole truth—eternity
must unfold itself before you can know that;
but you will get at that much of truth as
will serve your purpose, be it great or
Men may tell you te believo this or that
—it is nothing. You mnv believe as others
do, or you may not; but if you believe
what God shall teach you when you and
He are together in the "sad and glad ex
periences which will fall to your lot. then
your days will be radiant and you will be
The onlv real heresy is the heresy of an
evil life. Honest belief is never heresy,
but dishonest living is always heresy. To
be false to a high ideal, to grovefwhen
you ought to soar, to be entangled in tho
delusive ambitions of this world when you
ought to keep your soul bright and clear
and pure, to unmake yourself by immor
alities when you should bo building for
eternity, to bo mean when you should bo
great —these constitute a heresy which is
abhorred in heaven. He who lives nobly is
no heretic, whether his creed be long or
short. He who lives on a low moral level
is the true heretic, though his creed be a
furlong in length.
I say, therefore, bo yourself, and mnke
yourself all you ure capable of becoming.
Hign living alono is orthodox, nnd high
living is the result of pure feeling und
lofty thinking. If your conscience tells
you you are right you have nothing to
fear, either here or hereafter.

The money that Judas gave for surren
dering Christ was used to purchase a
graveyard. As tho money was blood money,
tho ground bought by it was called In the
Syriac tongue, "Aceldama," meaning "the
field of blood." Weil, ttere is one word I
want to write to-day over every raceoourse
where wagers are staked, aud every pool

table, public or private, where men and
women bet for sums of money, large or

the life of innumerable victims—Aceldama.
The gambling spirit, which is at all times
■ stupendous evil, over aud anon sweeps
over the country like an epidemic, prostra
ting uncounted thousands. There has
never been a worse attack than that from
which all the villages and towns and cities
are now suffering.
Some years ago, when an association for
the suppression of gambling was organ
ized, an agent of the association came to a
prominent citizen and asked him to patron
ize the society. He said: "No; I can have
no interest in such an organization. I am
in no wise affected by the evil." At that
very time his son, who was his partner in
business, was one of the heaviest players in
a famous gambling establishment. Another
refused his patronage on the same ground,
not knowing that his first bookkeeper was
losing from *SO to *IOO a night. Directly
or indirectly this evil strikes at the whole
Gambling is the risking of something
more or less valuable in the hope of win
ning more than you hazard. The instru
ments of gambling may differ but the
prlnciplo is the same. The shuffling and

Whatever you expect to get from your
neighbor without offering an equivalent la
money, or time, or skill. Is either the pro
duct of theft or gaming. Lottery tickets
and lottery policies come into the same
category. Bazars for the founding of hos
pitals, schools and churches, conducted
on the raffling system, come under the
same denomination. Do not, therefore,
associate gambling necessurily with any
instrument, or game, or time or place, or
think the principle depends upon whether
you pay for a glass of wine or one hundred
shares of railroad stock. Whether you
patronize "auction pools," "French mu
tuals," or "book-making," whether you
employ faro or billiards, rondo and keno,
cards or bagatelle, the very idea of the
thing is dishonest; for it professes to be

A young man having suddenly inherited
a large property, sits at the hazard tables,
and takes up in a dice-box the estate won
by a father's lifetime sweat, and shakes it
and tosses it away. Intemperance soon
stigmatizes its victim, kicking him out, a
slavering fool, into tho ditch, or sending
him,with the drunkard's hiccough, stagger
ing up the street, where his family lives.
But gambling does not in that way exposo
its victims. The gambler may be eaten up
by the gambler's passion, yet you only dis
cover it by the greed in his eyes, the hard

The infernal spell is on him; a giant is

and though you fasten him seven times

path heaven-high Bibles, tracts and ser

Notice, also, the effect of this crime upon
domestic happiness. It has sent its ruth
less ploughshares through hundreds of
families, until the wife sat in rags and the
sons grew up to the same infamous prac
tices, or took a short cut to destruction
across the murderer's scaffold. Home has
lost all charms for the gambler. How tame
are tho children's corossos and a wife's de
votion to the gambler! How droarily tho
lire burns on the domestic hearth! There
must be louder laughter, and something to
win aud something to lose; nu excitement
to drive the heart faster, fillip the blood
and lire the imagination. No home, how
ever bright, can keep back tho gamester.
The sweet call of love bounds back from
his iron soul, and all endearments are con
sumed in the lire of his passion. The
family Bible will go nfter all other treas

were put into his hands he would cry:
"Here goes; one moro game, my boys. On
this one throw 1 stake my crown of heaven."
Tho Church of God has not seemed will
ing to allow the world to have all the ad
vantage of these games of chanoo. A
church bazaar opens, and toward tho close

articles are unsalable. Forthwith the con
ductors of the enterprise conclude that
they will raffle for soine of tho valuable

some popular member of the church, fasci
nating persons are dispatched through tho
room, pencil in hand, to "solicit shares,"
or perhaps each draws for his own advant
age, and scores of people go home with
their trophies, thinking that it is all right,
for Christian women did tho embroidery
and Christian men did the raffling, and tho
proceeds went toward a new communion
set. But you may depend on it that as far
as morality is concerned, you might as
well have won by the crack of the billiard
ball or the turn of tho dice box. I)o you

Shall I sketch tho history of the gambler?
Lured by bad company, ho finds his way
into a place where honest men ought

deal out the cards. They unconsciously
play into satan's hands, who takes all the

trumps—ho being a sharper at auy game.
A slight stake is put up, just to add inter
est to tho play. Game after game is
played. Larger stakes and still larger.
They begin to move nervously on their
chairs. Their brows lower, and eyes flash,
until now they who win and they who lose,
fired alike with passion, sit with set jaws,
and compressed lips, and clenched fists,
and eyes like fireballs that seem starting
from their sockets, to see the final turn
before it comes; if losing, pale with envy
and tremulous witli unutterod oaths cast
back red-hot upon the heart—or wlnniug

treacherous set. Split huiksstrew the beach.
Everlasting storms howl up and down,
tossing unwary craft into the Hell-gate.
I speak of what I have seen with my own
eyes. To a gambler's death-bed there
comes no hope. He will probably die
alone. His former associates come not nigh
his dwelling. When the hour comes, his
miserable soul w+ll go out of a miserable
llfo into a miserable eternity. As his poor
remains pass the house where he was
ruined, old companions may look out for a
moment and say: "There goes tii"> old
carcass—dead at last;" but they will not
get up from the table. Let him down now
iuto his grave. Plant no tree to cast its
shade there, for the long, deep, eternal
gloom that settles there is shadow enough.
Plant no "forget-me-nots" or eglantines
around the spot, for flowers wore not made
to grow on such a blasted heath. Visit it
not in tho sunshine, for that would be
mockery, but In the dismal night, when no
stars were out, and tho spirit of darkness
comes down, horsed on the wind, then
visit the grave of the gambler.

Ural Nature of Alcohol.
Alcoholic poison first affects tho lobes ol
(he brain, and tho other nerve centres o)
the cerebro-spina! system aro successful!}
brought under the Influence of the poison,
until, in the state commonly known as
"dead drunk," the only ones that are not
paralvzed are those known as the auto
matic centres, which regulato and keep
up breathing anil the circulation. Enough
alcohol can be taken, however, to parii
lyzo those, in which case the deep sleep
of drunkenness a becomes stupor which
passes into death. There is a parallel be
tween apoplexy and intoxication. To be
drunk is simply apoplectic. Such is tbfc
action of alcohol upon the nervous system,
and its action upon tho other parts of the
body is no loss injurious.
When an alcoholic drink is taken into
the stomach, the alcohol Is rapidly ab
sorbed through the coats of that organ,
passes directly Into the circulation, and is
carried with tho blood to every part of the
system. That which goes to the brain pro
duces successively the symptoms enu
merated abovo; that carried to tho lungs
begins to be expelled with the expired
breath of these organs. Experiments have
been tried in which wino was adminis
tered in capsules, so that not one particle
touched tlie interior of the mouth or
throat; yet in two or throe minutes the
odor of alcohol was noted on tho breath,
showing that in that short time it had
been absorbed, passed into tho blood, and
was being expelled by the lungs.
The blood loaded with alcohol, In pass
ing through the liver, sets up an irritation
which frequently causes au incurable dis
ease to that very important organ—cirr
hosis of the liver, better known as "hobnail
liver." The kidneys are stimulated and
Irritated, and long indulgence in the
drinking habit leads to incurable diseases
in them. The skin is also affected, and
does its part in expelling the alcohol from
the system. In point of fact all the excre
tory organs set nt work as soon as the al
cohol gets Into the system, In the endeavor
to rid the body of flie poison. The liver,
kidneys, lungs and skin are all over-stim
ulated in this effort.
We hope we may have made it clear In
this brief statemeut of the action of alcohol
that it is absolutely and entirely a poison.
It isin no sense a food. It injures tho bruin,
the nerves, over-excites tho heart. Irritate?
the stomach, liver and kidneys; never
does any good, but always harm.
There Is a vast amount of ignorance
among the people as to the real nature of
alcohol. It Is the fewer number of our
people, even at this date, who are con
vinced that alcohol is a poison; and this
ignornnce of the masses is one of the bul
warks of the traffic. We need more educa
tion, especially in the family, in the
church, and in tho common school, ns to
the real nature and effect of this potent
poison. When the masses of the people
understand Its true nature, a tremendous
impulse will be given to the effort to pul
verize the rum power.—Toledo Blade.
The Temperance Soldier.
What makes the soldier? someone asks
Is he merely a lad taken out of the street!
and decked out in a gaudy uniform, in
whose hands a musket has* been placed;
No, but he is a man generated by fiercei
processes. The soldier spirit is worried
into him by long marches, pressed intc
him by long watches on the picket-line,
soaked into him by the dews of the night,
washed into him by the drenching rain,
baked into him by the burning hospital
fever, starved into him by theshort ration,
blown into him by shot and shell, and
thrust into him by the sabre slash and th#
bayonet wound. Out of all this is born I
the soldier. So In our temperanoe army.
We love our work because we havo stood
behind the ramparts and in the deadly
breach, and have fought for our principles;
because wo have endured labor and suf
fered contumely, and welcomed sacrifice
that our cause may triumph; and the re
wards of moral victories make our hearts
leap with greater joy than nny triumph
on a field of glory, because victories over 1
the monster vice of Intemperance are a
thousand-fold more vital to munkind.—

Novel Way of Preserving Flowers.
A novel woy of preserving flowers,
leaves and vines has been discovered
by some ingenious English girls. The
specimens are carefully dried up to a
certain point, and are then laid upon
sheets of soft paper something like
our blotting paper. This is moist
ened, a sheet of waxed paper placed
over it, then another sheet of soft pa
per, a layer of leaves and flowers, a
sheet of wax paper, and so on. The
whole series is then placed under a
board, on which is put a very heavy
weight, or which is placed in a power
ful press. The pressure crushes the
flowers into the soft, wet paper, and
as this dries it sets, fastening the
specimen very securely.
A New Artlele for the Kitchen.
A new article of kitchen furniture
that commends itself to every house
keeper who realizes the saving of
time and strength in having things
"handy" is a combination flour chest
and kitchen table. Tho bin holds
sixty pounds of flour, has two meal or
sugar bius, a bread board, a meat
board, and two large drawers, one
partitioned off for spices, etc. The
itins swing on the lower brace, and
open and shut without a particle of
friction. They are made of wood,
which, it is claimed, prevents the
flour from sweating as it does in bins
that are made of metal. It is a west
ern uia:i who lias invented this boon
to women, and a chorus of feminine
thanks accouipnuied by good tiuancial
returns will doubtless prove the suc
cess of his invention.
KggK Hard Roiled.
The class received a valuable sug
gestion when Miss Limerick said eggs
should never be allowed to boil. The
hardest boiled egg is just as digesti
ble, she said, as the one that is cooked
soft, provided it is properly prepared.
Very frequently when eggs do not
agree with a peraoti it is because they
have been boiled. A poached egg
should be broken into water that is at
boiling point and then set back on the
range where it will not boil agaiu.
Eggs cooked in the shell are better
when putin water that has been heat
ed io 160 or 180 degrees, considerably
less than boiling point, and kept at
that heat until tliev are cooked suffi
ciently. A hard-boiled egg usually
requires an hour to cook it properly.
The lesson was practical and thor
oughly interesting. It was full of
suggestions and hints that cannot but
prove valuable to those who are re
quired to prepare food for the sick
room and there were a number of
helpful points for the woman who
cooks for well persous.—Buffalo Ex
Boiled Onions—Pour boiling water
over them and remove the skins. Put
onto cook in boiling salted water. If

Orange Flower Custard—Beat the
yolks of four eggs with one and one
half ounces of powdered sugar and
three-quarters of a pint of milk. Pour
into a jug and set this in a saucepan
of warm water over the fire. Stir

Celery Vinegar—Celery vinegar is
useful for flavoring, and may be made
of pieces of celery covered with some
pure cider vinegar, or the celery seeds
may be used. If the celery seeds
are to be used, cover one ounce of
celery seed with one quart of pure
cider vinegar, and let it Btand two
weeks, shaking it every day. It will
then be ready for use.
French Sago Jelly—First wash
three ounces of crushed sago in cold
water and then boil it for two hours,
stirring occasionally. AVheu the sago
is quite dissolved, add the juice of a
large lemon, and two and one-half
ounces of lump sugar. Boil» all to

The Cause of Dyspepsia.
From the Republican, Seranton, Penna.
The primary cause of dyspepsia is lack of
vitality; the absence of nerve force; the loss
of the life-sustaining elements of the blood.
No organ can properly perform its func
tion when the source of nutriment falls.
When the stomach is robbed of the nourish
ment demanded by nature, assimilation
ceases, unnatural gases are generated; the
entire system responds to the discord.
A practical illustration of the symptoms
and torture of dyspepsia is furnished by
the case of Joseph T. Vandyke, 440 Hickory
St., Seranton, Fa.
In telling his story, Mr. Vandyke says:
"Five years ago I was afflicted with a
trouble of the stomach,
which was very aggravat
lng. I had no appetite, Vy/riv
could not enjoy myself at figT)\/\
any time, and especially
was the trouble severe
when I awoke in the morn- \
iKg. I did not know what Sir
the ailment was, but it be- H J
came steadily worse and I I
was in constant misery. , /
"I called in my family I
physician, and he diag- 1
nosed the case as catarrh . t
of the stomach. He pre
scribed for me and I had
his prescription filled. I In Mi»ery.
took nearly nil of the medicine, but still
the trouble became worse, and I felt that
my aondition was hopeless. I tried several
rejnedios recommended by my friends but
without benefit. After I bud been suffering
several months, Thomas Campbell, also 11
resident of this city, urged me to try Dr.
Williams' Fink Pills for Pale People.
"Ho finally persuaded me to buy a box
and I began to use the pills according to
directions. Before I had taken the second
box I began to feel relieved, and after tak
ing a few more boxes, I considered myself
