A KOMANTIC F.PISODK.
A Married Couple Accldentally,Meet After
un Absence of Tweuty-llvs Years.
Tho commencement of a wonderful
narrative in tho lives of two persons dates
buck twenty-live years, wneii John L,
Smith and Catherino llrady wero secretly
married In county Cavau. Ireland.
Smith wuh a jioor boy, while Miss Ilnuly'H
lather wuh u well-to-do tanner. .Mr,
Jlrudy was ho furious when ho discovered
his daughter had married without his
consent mat lie remseii to recognize
Smith as bin son-in-law, or permit his
daughter to live with a man whom she
had married. Ninth resolved to emi
grate to tho United States, earn HUlllcleiit
money to sond for his wife, uud take her
away from her father. Ho lost no lime
after ho lauded in Now York in liudiicj
Krio county, Pennsylvania, where ho ob
tained work on u farm. There ho saved
his money in Iioinih of soon having sulll-
clout to fend for his wife. Ho wrote her,
liut.xecelved no answer, After u your or
two no came to tlio conclusion sue nun
Ikjoii Hiituciontly Inlluonced by her father
to discard him, consequently ho learned
to forget her, and, after some years, mar
ried uud started west, fettling in Oregon,
where ho owns a lino farm of land and
quite u supply of live stock.
)xwi ull this timo Mrs. Smith hud
her troubles. Tho letters written to her
by her husband from tho United States
never reached hor. So she came to tho
conclusion that Smith had dei-etted her.
and to get uwuy from her associates, who
weio accustomed to jilsj her on lieing
neither maid, miss nor widow, she re
solved to go to Now South Wulos. Ar
riving in Sydney, slio went to work uh a
domestic, lieing u lino looking woman,
she soon attracted uud udmired u intiii
named Viiughan, whom she married.
After twulvo or fourteen years of married
life, Vaughun, whllo out on it surveying
expedition iu Queensland, was killed by
tho natives, leaving his wife childless uud
with but little means. In this condition
she struggled along for some years, und
llnully cumo to Sun Francisco.
AiKitit two weeks ugo .Mrs. Miuuiiuu
went to the Alcazar theatre, On one of
tho side seats close by where she sat. was
a man with gray hair uud u weather-

and boldly asked Mrs. Vuughuti if her

and if she was not from county Cavoii,

If according to tho laws of order or

way than in tho most perfect form so
also according to tho laws ot otder, tho
disorderly may not enter tlio halls, the
stately halls of spiritual jurisprudence.
Yuit remember that tho man without the
wedding garment was refused admittance
to tho marriago feast. It was tho mar
riage of love uud truth ; the marriage of
Christ and tho Church: and so it is was
written When Jehovah Uud had driven
out tho man, (who took counsel of tho
scrtHHit of self-conceit, uud thought him
self us Uod, knowing good and evil,)
lie inudo cherubs, or guards, to dwell ut
tho cast of thu garden of Intelligence and
wisdom, and tho tlamo of a sword turn
ing itself hither and thither, to keep tho
way of tho tree of life Uon., II, '.Nl. 24.
Tho East is tho source of light and civil
ization, and it continually seeks of itself
tho way of tho tree of life. Tho letter of
tho Word in terriblo denunciations, that
Mash like a tlamo and cut like a sword,
guard thu hidden manna of tho tree of
life, to tho end that tho truth bo not pro
faned, and Its meaning Is turned hither
and thither bv many different und di
verse sects. Thus guarding tho way to
tho tree of life, to thu cud that tho truth
Ixj not profaned is made' necessary, as
every soul to a latgo extent chooses and
makes its own surroundings, uud it is
disorderly to t.eek life uud lifit without a
rccouir.atlou of tho source of life uud
11 tht. Tho sense of tho letter of tho
Word us n guard is slgnllled and also de
scribed In thu Word by cherubs. Cher
ubs were said to dwell iu tho east of tho
harden, so cherubs of gold wero placed
upon tho two cuds of tho mercy seat,
which was upon tlio Ark iu the tuber
nuclo Hx., 110. 18-21. Tlio Ark slgnl
lled tho Word, because tho decalogue was
In it ; tlio cherubs there slgnllled a guard.
So also thu cherubs titou tho curtains of
tho tulioriiuclo uud niton tho veil Fx,,
ill, l-:tl. So also tlio cherubs carved
uon thu walls and doors of thu temple of
JoMisalem 1 Kings, 12. So also it was
written concerning tho king of Tyro
Thou scaloit up tho sum, full of wisdom
and perfect in lwuuty; thou bust been
In tho garden of Kden; every precious
stono was thy covering; thou, O cherub,
a i-o thu outspreading of him that cover
etli; I have destroyed thee, O covering
cherub, iu thu midst of thu stones of Hie
Hx,, ."'I. Ily Tyro Is slgnllled cogni
lions of truth, antl hence by the king of
Tyro, tho Word whouco those cognitions
uro. Thut tho Word Is slgnllled by tho
king of Tyro und it guard by hcrubsis

written of thu Now JoruMilotu tho Now
Chinch. Tho wall hud twelve founda
tions garnished with ull manner of pru
clous Motion Aikjc, 21. The wall und
tho foundations of tho wall can menu
nothing but thu externals of tho Word,
which Is llko a wall with its foundations
which oilcloths uud protects it city. Tho
covering cherub Is dojlroycd in tho midst
of tho stones of Uro that Is to say tho
letter of tho Word und Its meaning is ex
plained by thu stone:) of Uro or tho truths
of love; heat or lire corroqionds to divine
heat or divine love. Slucu by cherubs Is
signified thu Word iu its ultimatcs, and
also u guip-d. It is said by David Jeho
vah bowed the heavens, and camu down
and nxlo ii)it a cherub 1's., -I), Shep
herd of Israel, who sltteth iiK)ii a cheru
bim slilno forth l's., HO, 1, Jehovah
sitteth upon thu choruhlm l'ri., 1)1), 1.
To rido niton cherubs uud to sit ujiou
them moans iiimju tho ultimutu
sense of tho Word. Tho spiritual
sense of tho Word is thus guarded
lest any one should jiervert tho genuine
truth, und force it to confirm even what
is false. Iu;ersull holds not tho truth it
self up to ridicule; of tills ho lias no con
ception, hu strikes only at tho guard.
His mistake consists hi not distinguish
ing tho wheat front tho tares, uud is ut-
tuiiiptiiig to Pluck up ls)th by thu roots.
Tho spiritual kiiiso was slgnilled by thu
vusturu ot the Jord, whlcli was wiihoui

Jowh at thu passion of tho cross.

sense us it is interiorly, Ikjcuuso white is
predicated of truths in the light. Now
us the 1-ord represents himself to John

Tho J-ord often said that they should sou

not iu jicrson. Ily tho clouds of heaven
is meant tho Word, in tho seme of tho
