TEXT: "The Lord is my shepherd."—
Psalms xxiii., 1.
What with, post and rail fences and our
pride in Southdown, Astrakhan and Flem
ish varieties of sheep, there is no use now
of the old-timo sheplrerd. Such a one had
abundance of opportunity of becoming
a poet, being out of doors twelve hours a
day, and ofttlmes waking up in the night
on the hills. If the stars orthe torrents or
tbe sun or the flowers had anything to
say, he was very apt to hear it. The Et
trick Shepherd of Scotland, who afterward
took his seat in the brilliant circle of Wil
son andLookhart, got his wonderful poetic
inspiration in the ten years in which he
was watching the flocks of Mr. Laldlaw.
There Is often a sweet poetry in the ragged
prose of the Scotch shepherd. One of
these Scotch shepherds lost his only son,
and he knelt down in prayer and was over
heard to say, "O Lord, it has seemed good
in Thy providence to take from me the
staff of my right hand at the time when to
us sand Mind mortals I seemed to be most
in need of it, and how I shall climb up the
hill of sorrow and auld age without It Thou
inayst ken, but I dinna!"
David, tbe shepherd boy, is watching his
father's sheep. They are pasturing on the
very hills where afterward a Lumb was
born of which you have heard much, "the
Lamb of God. Whioh taketh away the sin
of the world." David, the shepherd boy,
was beautiful, brave, musical and poetic.
I think he often forgot the sheep In his
reveries. There in the solitude he struck
the harp string that is thrilling through all
ages. David the boy was gathering the
material for David the poet and David the
man. Like other boys, David was fond of
using his knife among the saplings, nnd he
had noticed the exuding of the juice of the
tree, nnd when he became a man he said,
"The trees of the Lord are full of sap."
David the boy, like other boys, had been
fond of hunting the birds' nerfts, nnd he
had driven the old stork off the nest to flnd
how many eggs were under her, and when
he became a man ho said, "As for the stork,
the fir trees are her house." In boyhood
he had heard the terrific thunderstorm
that frightened the red deer into prema
ture sickness, and when he became a man
he said, "The voice of the Lord maketh
the hinds to calve." David the boy had
lain upon his back looking up at the stars
and examining the sky, und to his boyish
imagination the sky seemed like n piece of
divine embroidery, the divine lingers work
ing in the threads of light and the beads of
stars, and he became a man and wrote,
"When I consider thy heavens, tho work
of thy Angers." When he became an old
man, thinking of the goodness of God, ho
seemed to hear the bleating of his father's
sheep across many years and to think of
the time when bo tended them on the Beth
lehem hills, and he cries out in tho text,
"The Lord is my shepherd."
If God will help me, I will talk to you of
the shepherd's plaid, the shepherd's crook,
the shepherd's dogs, the shepherd's past
ure grounds and the shepherd's flocks.
And first the shepherd's plaid. It would
be preposterous for a man going out to
rough and besoiling work to put on
splendid apparel. The potter does not work
iu velvet; the serving maid doos not put on
satin while toiling at her duties: the shep
herd does not wear a splendid robe in which
togo out amid the storms and the rocks
and the nettles; he puts on the rough ap
£arel appropriate to his exposed work. The
ord our Shepherd, coming out to hunt the
lost sheep, puts on no regal appaael, but
the plain garment of our humanity. There
was nothing pretentious about it. I know
the old painters represent a halo nround
the babe Jesus, but I do not suppose that
there was any more halo nbout that child
than about the head of any other babe that
was born that Christmas eve in Judtea. Be
coming a man, he wore a seamless garment.
The scissors and needle had done nothing
to mako it graceful. I take it to have been
a sack with three holes in it—one for the
neck and two for the arms. Although the
gamblers quarreled over it that is no evi
dence of its value. I have seen two rag
pickers quarrel over tho refuse of an ash
barrel. No, in the wardrobe of heaven he
left the sandals of light, the girdles of
beauty, the robes of power and put on the
besoiled and tattered raiment of our hu
manity. Sometimes he did not even wear
the seamless robe. What is that hanging
about the waist of Christ? Is it a badge of
authority? Is it a royal coat of arms? No,
it is a towel. The disoiples'feet are filthy
from tho walk on the long way and are not
lit to bo put upon the sofas on which they
are to recline at tho meal, and so Jesus
washes their feet and gathers them up in
the towel to dry them. Tho work of saviug
1 his world was rough work, rugged work,
hard work, and Jesus put on the raiment,
the plain raiment, of our flesh.
Nest I mention the shepherd's crook.
This was a rod with a curve at the end,
which, when u sheep was going astray, was
thrown over its neok, and in that way it
was pulled back. When the sheep wore not
going astray the shepherd would often uso
It as a sort of crutch, leaning on it, but
when the sheep were out of the way the
crook was always busy pulling them back.
All we, like sheep, have gone astray, and
had It not been for the Shepherd's crook
we would have fallen long ago over the
Here is a man who is making too much
money. He is getting very vain. He says:
"After awhile I shall be independent of all
the world. Oh, my soul, eat, drink and be
merry!" Business disaster comes to him.
What is God going to do with him? Has
God anv grudge against him? Oh, no. God
is throwing over him the shepherd's crook
and pulling him back into better pastures.
Here Is n man Who has always been well.
He lias never had any sympathy for in
valids. He calls them coughing, wheezing
nuisances. After awhile sickness comes to
him. He does not understand what God is
going to do with him. He says, "Is the
Lord angry with me?" Oh, no. With the
shepherd's crook he has been pulled back
into better pastures. Here Is a happy
household circle. Tho parent does not
realize tho truth that these children are
only loaned to him, and he forgets from
what source came his domestic blessings.
Sickness drops upon those children and
death swoops upon a little one. He says,
"Is God nngry with me?" No. His shep
herd's crook pulls him back Into better
pastures. Ido not know what would have
become of us If it had not been for tho
shepherd's crook. Oh, the mercies of our
troubles! You tako up apples and plums
from under the shade of the trees, and the
very beat fruits of Christfun character we
find in the deep shade of trouble.
When I was on the steamer coming across
tho ocean, I got a cinder in my eye, and
several persons tried to get it out very
gently, but It could not be taken out in
that wuy. 1 was told that the engineer
had a facility In such eases. I went to
him. Ho put his large, sooty hand on me,
took a knife and wrapped the lid of the eye
around the knife. I expected to be hurt
very much, but without any pain and in
stantly ho removed the cinder. Oh there
come times in our Christian life when our
spiritual vision is being spoiled and all
gentle appliances fail. Then there comes
some giant trouble and, black handed,
lays hold of us and removes that which
would have ruined our vision forever I
will gather all your joys together In one
regiment of ten companies, and I will put
them under Colonel Joy. Then I will
gather all your sorrows together in one
regiment of ten companies and put them
under Colonel Brealcheart. Then I will
ask which of these regiments has gained
for you the greater spiritual victories
Certainly that under Colonel Breakheart
There Is no animal that straggles more
violently than a sheep when you corner it
and catch hold of It. Down in the glen I
see a group of men around *a lost sheep*
A plowman comes along and seizes the
sheep and tries to pacify it, but it is more
frightened than ever. A miller comes
along, puts down his grist and caresses the
sheep, and ft seems us if it would die or
fright. After awhile some one breaks
through the thicket. He says, "Let roe
have the poor thing." He comes up and
lays his arms around the sheep, and it is
immediately quiet. Who is the last man
that comes? It is the shepherd. Ah, my
friends, be not afraid of the shepherd's
crook. It is never used on you save in
mercy to pull you back. The hard, cold
iceberg of trouble will molt in the warm
gulf stream of divine sympathy.
There is one passage I think you misin
terpret, "The bruised reed He will not
break." Do you know that the shepherd
in olden times played upon these reeds?
They were very easily bruised, but when
they were bruised they were never mended.
The shepherd could so easily make another
one, he would snap the old one and throw
it uway and get another. The Bible says
it is not so with our Shepherd. When the
musio is gone out of a man's soul, God does
not snap him in twain and throw him away.
He mends and restores. "The bruised
reed He will not break."
Next I speak of the shepherds' dogs. They
watch the straying sheep and drive them
baok again. Every shepherd has his dog,
from the nomads of the Bible times down
to the Sootch herdsman watching his flocks
on the Grampian hills. Our shepherd em
ploys the criticisms and persecutions of the
world as his dogs. There are those, you
know, whoso whole work it is to watch the
inconsistencies of Christians and bark at
them. If one of God's sheep gets astray,
the world howls. With more avidity than
a shepherd's dog ever caught a stray sheop
by the flanks or lugged it by the ears
worldlings seize the Christian astray. It
ought to do us good to know that we are
thus watched. It ought to put us on our
guard. They cannot bite us if we stay near
the Shepherd. The sharp knife of worldly
assault will only trim the vines uutli 1 they
produce better grapes. The more you
pound marjoram and rosemary the sweeter
they smell. The more dogs take after you
the ouicker you will get to the gate.
You have noticed that different flocks of
sheep have different marks upon them—
sometimes a red mark, sometimes a blue
mark, sometimes a straight mark and some
times a crooked mark. The Lord our Shep
herd has a mark for his sheop. It is a red
mark, the mark of the cross. "Blessed are
they that are persecuted for righteousness'
sake, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven."
Furthermore, consider the shepherds'
pasture grounds. The old shepherds used
to take the sheep upon the mountains in
the summer and dwell in the valleys in the
winter. The sheep being out of doors per
petually, their wool was better than if they
had been kept iu the hot atmosphere of the
sheop cot. Wells were dug for the sheep
and covered with large stones In order that
the hot weather might not spoil the water.
And then the shepherd led his flock wher
ever he would. Nobody disputed his right.
So the Lord our Shepherd has a large pas
ture ground. He takes us in the summer
to the mountains and In the winter to the
valleys. Warm days of prosperity come,
and we stand on sun gilt Sabbaths and on
hills of transllguratlon, and we aroso high
up we can catch a glimpse of the pinnacles
of the heavenly eity. Then cold wintry
days of trouble come, and we go down Into
the valley of sickness, want and beroave
ment, and we say, "Is there any sorrow like
unto my sorrow?" But, blessed be God,
the Lord's sheep can find pasture uuy
where. Between two rocks of trouble a
tnft of succulent promises, green pastures
beside still waters, long sweet grass be
tween bitter graves. You have noticed the
structure of the sheep's mouth? It is so
sharp that it can take up a blade of grass
or clover top from the very narrowest spot.
And so God's sheep can pick up comfort
where others cau gather none. "The secret
of the Lord is with them that fear him."
Lustly, consider the shepherd's fold.
The time of sheep shearing was a very glad
time. The neighbors gathered together,
and they poured wine and danced for joy.
The sheep were putin a place Inclosed
by a wall, whore it wos very easy to count
them and know whether any of them had
been taken by the jackals or "logs. The
Inclosurewas called the sbeepfold. Good
news I have to toll you, ID that our Lord
the Shepherd has a slieepfold. aud those
who are gathered iu it shall never be
struck by the storm, shall never betouehed
by the jackals of temptation and trouble.
It has A high wall —so high that DO
troubles can get in—so high that the joys
cannot get out. How glad the old sheep
will beto And the iambs that loft them a
good many years ago. Millions of children
in heaven. Oh, what a merry heaven It
will make! Not many long meter psalms
there. They will bo in the majority and
will run away with our song, carrying It
up to a still higher point of ecstasy. Oh,
there w'll bo shouting. If children on
earth clapped their hands and danced for
joy, what will they do when to the glad
ness of childhood on enrth Is added the
gladness of childhood in heaven?
It is time we got over these morbid ideas
of how we shall get out of this world.
You make your religion an undertaker
planing coffins and driviug hearses. Your
religion smells of the varnish of a funeral
casket, Bather let your religion to-oay
come out and show you the sheepfold that
Hod has provided for you. Ah, you say,
there is a river between this ond that. 1
know it, but that Jordan is only for the
sheep washing, and they shall go up on tho
other banks snow white. They follow the
great Shepherd. They heard his voice
long ago. They arc safe now—one'fold and
Alas for those who are finally found out
side the inclosure! The night of their sin
howls with jackals; they are tbirstlDg for
their blood. The very moment that a lamb
may be frisking upon the hills a bear may
be looking at it from the thicket.
In June, 1815, there was a very noble
party gathered in a house in St. James'
square, London. The prince regent was
present, and tho occasion was made fas
cinating by music and banqueting and by
jewels. While a quadrille was being
formed suddenly all the people rushed to
tho windows. What Is tho matter? Henry
Percy had arrived with the news that
Waterloo had been fought and rhut Eng
land had won the day. The danoe was
abandoned, the party dispersed, lords, la
dies and musicians rushed into the street,
and in fifteen minutes from tho first an
nouncement of tho good news the house
was emptied of all its guests. Oh, ye who
are sooted at the banquet of this world or
whirling in its gayetles and frivolities, it
yau could hear the sweet strains of the
gospel trumpet announcing Christ's vic
tory over sin and death and hell, you
would rush forth, glad in the eternal de
livorauce. The Waterloo against sin has
been fought, and our Commander-in-
Chief liatli won the day. Oh, the joys of
this salvation! I do not earo what meta
phor, what comparison you havo, bring It
to me. that I may use It. Amos shall bring
one simile, Isaiah another, John another.

THE LIMIT OF HUMAN LIFE.
Authorities Differ on It and Centena
rlans Are Uncertain Quantities.
How may a man prolong his life in
This question is discussed, but by
no means settled, in an article by
Langdon Kain, M. D., in the North
The writer points out that author
ities disagree by over a century as to
the utmost limit of the human life,
and are widely divergent as to the
means for prolonging it.
Where one instance is found of a
centenarian who has lived abstem
iously and kept regular habits an
other springs up of an equally aged
man who has been a noted drunkard
and smoker all his life.
Authorities on the subject have
been puzzled to note that in countries
where prosperity, intelligence and
general civilization are highest, cen
tenarians ore fewest.
Dr. Kain explains this by saying
that among such persons the death
certificates are more rigidly kept,
while among people of less education
the exact age is left in doubt and wild
guesses are made as to every old man
or woman's years. ,
This would seem to discount many
of the tales of persons who claim to
be 150 or 180.
This theory is borne out by the fact
that nearly all alleged centenarians
belong to the poorer, less educated
classes. Hiram Lester, said to have
been the oldest citizen of this country,
died in an almshouse in 1896 at the
alleged age of 128. Noah Kaby, an
other pauper, celebrated what he said
was his 126 th birthday at Piscataway,
N. J., recently. A German statisti
cian claims to have found an African
named Bruno Coburn, now living at
Rio de Janeiro, at the age of 150. Jo
siah Field, of Red Bank, N. J., died
last year at the fairly authenticated
age of 104. He remained a bachelor
until he was seventy-five, when he
married and became the father of
three children. Margaret Kasiocona,
a Pole, was a similar case, having
married her third husband when she
was ninety-four, and bearing liim three
children. Ireland holds the prize as
a centenarian producing country. Of
its 5,000,000, 578 are said to be cen
tenarians. England, with a popula
tion of 28,000,000, has but 146, while
Germany, with 50,000,000 inhabitants,

Watt, the great improver of the
steam engine, introduced into the vo
cabulary of machinists the term horse
power. When he first began the
manufacture of steam engines, he ex
perienced much diftlcelty in ascertain
ing from his distant customers what
sized engine they required, and they
were not less puzzled how to commu
nicate to him the information. He
was frequently guided, however, by
their mentioning the number of horses
which the engine ordered was designed
to replace. Acting upon this hint, he
ascertained by experiment that the
very strongest of the London brewers'
horses (animals of wonderful size and
strength), could exert a force equiva
lent to raising 33,000 pounds one foot
in a minute. This force he called one
horse-power, and adopted it as the
standard in regulating the size of steam
engines. Now, not one horse in a hun
dred is able to exert that degree of
strength. A steam engine of ten horse
power can, in reality, do the work of
about twenty horses.
A Judge Killed by a Turkey.
The fashion by which Judge Samuel
Ashe of the First North Carolina
Supreme Court came to his death must
have been extremely mortifying to him.
He was killed by a turkey gobbler.
One day, after he had become very
old and infirm, he was placed in a ohair
under the shade of a tree in his yard.
A red cap protected his ancient nod
dle from the attacks of flies, and his
comfort was so well provided for in
every way that a sweet slumber stole
upon him, and caused him to nod. A
large turkey gobbler, which patrolled
that precinct, mistaking this for a
challenge, immediately gave battle.
On a sudden the Judge's sweet slum
bers were broken by the flap of hostile
wings, and ere he could collect his
scattered senses a well-directed spur
smote him in the temple, and he fell
down and gave up the ghost.—Law

The Ethnology of Kissing.
The kiss was unknown, I think,
among the aboriginal tribes of Amer
ica and of Central Africa. From the
most ancient times, however, it has
been familiar to the Asiatic and Eu
ropean races. The Latins divided it
into three forms—the osculum, the
basium, and the suavium; the first
being the kies of friendship and re 1
spect, the second of ceremony, and
the third of love. The Semites always
knew the kiss, and Job speaks of it as
part of the sacred rites, as it is to
day in the Roman Church. The Mon
golian kiss, however, is not the same
as that which prevails with us. In it
the lips do not touch the surface of
the person kissed. The nose is
brought into light contact with the
cheek, forehead or hand; the breath
is drawn slowly through the nostrils,
and the act ends with a slight smack
of the lips. The Chinese consider
our mode of kissing full of coarse
suggestiveness, 'and onr writers re
gard their method with equal disdain.
Darwin and other naturalists have at
tempted to trace back the kiss to the
act of the lower animals, who seize
their prey with their teeth, etc.—

Speaking of "land grabbing," it is
amusing to find a Russian journal de
nouncing the process. Russia owns
over one-seventh of the habitable
globe. It is twice as large as all Eu
rope and three times larger thau the
United States. She has obtained all
this territory by land grabbing. She
has seized a large portion of Turkey's
territory in Europe, and appropriated
the portion of Asia from the Ural
Mountains and the Black Sea to the
waters of the Pacific, and north of the
Himalayas, Thibet and China, where
she has recently continued the land
grabbing begun by the wily Count
Ignatieff a few decades ago, and has
practically added Manchuria and the
important port of Port Artliur and Ta-
Lien-Wan to her Pacific Coast acqui
sitions, and has a strong grip upon
Korea.—Minneapolis Journal. k
A German engineer has recently
succeeded in plating aluminum with
copper by a welding process, and
makes the combined materials in such
forms that they may be soldered,
rolled, drawn and plated. If this
process is successful on a commercial
scale, it would seem as if the increased
usefulness of aluminum is to become
practically unlimited, as the copper
coating would remove all obstacles to
its use where it must be in contact
with fluids, soldered, and painted or
arations manufactured from chalks, clays,
whiting, etc., are stuck on the wall with
