The Adviamced State of Egyptian Culture in Moses' Day. The following ts a synopsis of the ser mon preached by the Rev. LIddell Sun day evening, at tho Pre?byterlan church: Egypt stands out on the page of an cient history as pre-eminently tho first nation of the world In education and culture and' military prowess. And as we carefully mark tho successive steps of -her history, so far as that history is to be known, we may distinctly note the footprints of Jehovah regulating all Wer energies and directing all her forc3 up to that prominence and power. We are told that Egypt was settled by the immtedlatie descendants of the antedllu vlans, whose long lives extended, in most cases over three or four centuries, enabling them to plan, and give them am ple time to execute great works, the very eight of which is the wonder of the world, and Which verily discourages their short lived posterity. Their long evity also enabled them to Increase and multiply at a rale far exceeding that of modiern generations. Yet notwithstand ing, there was always an abundance of food, for all these multitudes, produced" by the fertile soli of the valley of the Nile; Irrigated1 as It Is without labor, by the natural overflow of that great river every year. Thus, very ofien, when all the rert of the world was scorched -with droug-ht, and the Inhabitants were suffering from famine, there was always an abundance of corn in Egypt. When tho etarved savages of Europe were 1-unting the wild oxen with their flint hatchets and -arrow heads, and were glad to shelter themselves from win ter's frosts and snows in the caves or the mountains, the Egyptians had thojr grainarles well filled with wheat and bar ley and corn, to feed their families and al) the cattle within their borders. History also records that they had among them wise men who were able to instruct the rising generations regular ly in ail the arts and sciences, and that such Instruction was given in the pal aces and In the various temples and public places of instruction throughout tlie country. In the days of Abraham we find them working In Iron, copper, and tin, as well as in gold and silver. On their monuments you may look up on pictures showing the glass-blowers at their work, and this too, centuries be for tho alleged occidental discovery of glass by the Phoenician sailors who kin died a fire of dried cea. weed on the Bands of the seatihore and as it died down found the alkali and sand had fused together Into glass. Then aquln we find that the dead kings, princes and princesses at burial wero wrapped in shrouds of cambric or fine linen, so fine that In one specimen to be seen In the Berlin museum, there are no leis than 270 pairs of threads to the square inch 170 threads of woof. Such produc tions as this fully attest the very high perfection of cloth. Thin again we are told that the masons' marks which are to be Been on the great pyramids, those wonders of the world, are nothing ieps than alphabetic writing, the first, so far as I can uncertain, to be found anywhere. And tho papyrus reed, which today still grows on the tanks of the river Nile, furnished the world with its paper and which was used by the Egyp tians long before tho time of Moses. Papyri of tlie age of Joseph and one as old as Abraham, amply show to the world that there lived a people, long before the advent of Moses, who were thoroughly cultivated: writers of poetry, and prose, history arid Biography, phll osjphy, law und theology. Hut to take a step further, the records cf the an cient civilization of Egypt, are not con fined to the perishable papyri, for she has written her r?cordn, besides all these, on the face of her imperishable granite with the pen of Iron, and Iheso stand out before the world for scrutiny. Then If we turn and look at har archl- i lecture, we see anotlu-r enduring monu ment of Egyptian civilization.. Centuries bnfors the introductl n of the arch Into Greece, it was used in Egypt in her buildings, the ciumbling remains of which still exist. HuSre obelisks carved lout af sink-to rotn;yi, one of which stands one. hnndr-.l and twenty-seven feet In height, proclaim a very high skll-I In both working end handling stone. Or, tiki tho great pyramid covering twelve acres and a half, built of Immense blocks of stone, many of them welching one hundred tons each, rising to an elevation of 4.'0 feet. These exhibit a speclment of architectural skill fur beyond all that has been attempted by any of either the medieval or modern appliances of hy draulics. We speak of the marvellous power of our nodern appliances of hy draulics, but in those ancient monuments we -have an exhibition of scientific and mechanical skill, which has so far baf fled the world. Still aitaln we have loft to us a won derfif legacy of art which Indicates a well-defined culture In painting, and also In sculpture . It would seem as If this description of art had become a great pafslon among the Egyptians. The walls of their palaces, their temples, their d. el lings, their tombs, were cover-id with paintings and sculptures of various kinds. To such an extent was this the more sculptures tftun all the rest of the world put together. The modern trav- eler tells us. that her very mountains are honeycombsd with caves and tombs whose pictured walls proclaim to Ihe world that the greatest of all tributaries to the great stream of civilization, ot both Europe and Asia, took Its rise In Ancient Egypt: By all her arts nnd sciences, her public as well as private Instruction, given to th tavored or her veople, Egypt was, long before the birth of Moses, the gneaf University of the world. Cadmus wentrto Egypt to learn his A, B. C. Herodotus we.it to Egypt to learn history. Euclid went to Egypt to learn geometry, and the twelve books which he compiled In Alexandria remain our "college text books to the present day' 8o history presents ancient Egypt, as It was in the time of Mo. Thus when we read that Mivses was learned In all the wisdom of the Egyptians, we cannot but conclude that he was cultivated and very prortcit-nt in all branth-- of educa tion ar.d scler.ee: that he -was pre-eminently a nw.i of wis ion. and by his con nection with the court fha'raoh, a man of great authority and power. While all this may be true of Moses, yet, as I presented to you last Sunday evening, we find that he chose rather to suffer affliction with tho people of God, than to enjoy all the pleasures of the sinful ways cf the Egyptian court. Those of you who were present last Sunday evening, will remember the point at -which we left the history of Moses. We mentioned two of the steps which had been divinely directed in preparing Mo-sea for the special work that God had for him to do In coming years, viz.: (1) The teaching and training in his father's home, where the prlnclples,of righteous ness and truth and the unswerving faith of his fathers in Jehovah were instilled Into his heart during the years of his boyhood. (2) And the . training in the court of Pharaoh under the immediate oversight of his foster-mother, Pharaoh's daughter. And that when he was come to years, or when ho was nigh forty years cf age, he refused to be called the son of Pharaoh's daughter, and went forth to see how his kindred fared In the midst of their servitude. On that mem orable visit the whole of his after life turned. As he passed through the midst of those Hebrew slaves he espljd one of tho tyrannical taskmasters treating with unwarranted cruelty one of his breth ren. This so aroused his indignation that he at once took and slew the tyrant on the spot and hid his body In tho sands. Before long this came to the ears of Pharaoh, and the king sought to slay Moses. The result was that Moses fled -from Egypt and oame and dwelt in the land of Mldlan. Here Moses joined him self to Jethro, who was called the "Priest of Mldlan." Jethro was one who still retained within himstelf and sus tained anicng the people surrounding him the faith of tho true God. With Jethro he settled down for the next forty years. Here began thJe third and final and most Important perljd of Moses' preparations. And now for a short time I wish to direct ;-our attention to this part of the life of this great man. Heretofore we have sem nlm only in the midst of tho great multitude, taken up with and Interested In all the multi farious duties of stat, amid luxury, ease, comfort and pleaaur?, but now we are to follow limi through the next forty years in the wilderness of Mldlan, a3 a herds n an, U-oking after the flocks of .ferhio, who, after a few years, became his fath er-in-law. Here. then. In thu wilderness away ficm all infj bustle of state, in the quiet solitude of rural life, alone with cm, as it were, he gains his final equip ment fi'ie Ihe subsequent forty years' work .wni.li God has been Sitting him to do. Here let every one of us lear-i this one or me greatest lessons in all the Chris tian economy that to b alono with God is peace, is security, is life. Solitude, no Christian can do without solitude: no Christian tai do without the closet. "Enter into thy closet," says Jesus, "and tnere commune with thy God." And If we Christians follow His example, we will often seek the solitary place to be alone with God. He often sought the mountain loneliness, away from, the noise and bustle of life sj that he irlght be a;one wltn his Father, and from Him gather resuscitation and strengtn. And we can only faintly aivine what those times of Rolltudo meant to him except wnen we uo t:ie same thlnj-gct alone with God. From the moment that Mosos took that visit into the camp of his brethren, and sa.v their condition, it is quite eviden that ins ?ninu was made up as X3 what c-ojrse he saould pursue in regard to them. Ms heart fairly bled with nltv for them, and ifromi all that followed It Is quite clear that hi had decided upon a course of deliverance for them. But for this he was not reidy, hence he was driven Into the wilderness. Here we have ss.en the silent, solemn grandeur cf nature taught him many needful les sons. He saw the power, wisdom, love und faithfulness, of the God in whom ho put his trust. Herj he had ample time to perfect all the divinely suggested plans and elaborate all the details of his future work which little by little had been unfolding before him. There are one or two lessons which we all may elarn wita great profit: First We notice that there is a divine Intent In all the conditions in which God sees fit to place his people, and especially those whom He is preparing for future tpeciul work, as it was with Moses. Second Learn that God's great design is that all things shall work together for the ultimata complete deliverance of every humon aoul that rests Its case In His hands. IN THG CIRCUIT COURT.

HE IS Runs His Own Business and Keeps Jlis Contracts. A MONTANA MAN IS HERE Speaks of Mr. llauiniond'g Record at Horn Some Interestinij Facts Work During: the AVinter. Mr. Richard Lockey, of Helena, Mont., Is in the city, having Just arrived on his return from a trip to San Francisco, Mr. Lockey was here last spring, and had a curiosity to eea what was going on In Astoria since tho construction or the railroad had commenced, To an Astorian representative he said "I have lived in Helena for 29 years ond believe In our city and country, Helena ts now the permanent capital ot the state and the new military fort will soon be occupied by United States troops, Helena now has a population of 20,000 people, and Is constancy improving. We are some of us looking to the coast for large business in the near future, and If things go right in Astoria I expect to become interested in busings here. From what I can see and learn you are on the verge of a great change In your affairs, and the near future will no doubt see an increase in industrial and manufacturing enterprises." "Mr. Lockey, have you known Mr. A. B. Hammond, of your state, who Is now building tho Astoria railroad?" "I hav- had a warm personal acquaint ance with Mr. Hammond for 25 years, though I have not been associated with him In -business." "What is Mr. Hammond's reputation at home for fair dealing and the ful fillment of his business contracts? Is It such as would Justify the belief on the part of our people thiat ho will carry out the projects he has undertaken here?" "I do not quite catch the drift of your question, but I can only answer your question literally .and Etato that Mr. Hammond, and his large firm, have a reputation in Montanx of carrying out to the letter all of their obligations. They have ample means with which to do so, and have never failed to make good their word in the past." "Did you see Mr. Hammond as you passed through Portland, and how did you find him?" "Yes, I saw Mr. Hammond yesterday, and he was feeling bet'or. though he has been somewhat unl-r the weather. He Is expecting to return to Astoria in u few days. He is a very busy man nnd has many Interests to look after besides the Astoria road." ' There have been a yfood many remarks made about Mr. Ham.nond and consid erable feeling exhibited in certain quar ters bec-amse he has not proceeded with the construction of the railroad as rap idly as It wus thought he would and muny slurs ind Inuendos have been thrown but against Mr. Hammond personally, through some of thee local papers, and by those who seem to take delight in calling others names, .vnd naturally much comment has been excited. Do you believe from your talk with Mr. Hamnion I th.it work will proceed on the road with any la-ge for.e this winter?" "While my conversation with Mr. Ham mond was only that of one friend with another, and of a most general charac ter, yet from what he sill he is going lo push the work with vigor and no doubt the contracts under consideration for the ten miles for which bids were recently called will be let In short order. You will find one thin,-?, however, that he will surely conduct his own business on his own phnj end In his own way. lie and his firm ulw.iys have done a in the past and probably will do so now. Cut there gaoiiM be no occasion for doubt as to his ultimate succs? or any fear of failure to carry out his agreement. He Is not a man to enter into any scheme until he can see the end, and he certainly cannot afford to risk nis business reputation cn an cnterr-ns-! IUe this I am surpris ed that any su -h questions h ive b'en ralseJ, but you know Pi all communities, particularly rr.c lik-i this, there are' al ways uios.; who are impatient, but my firm belief is that when nc does com mence operations on a lar'-r scale, the most sanguine of you will be su: prised by the magnitude at bislness that will be done In a short sr i-'e of time." Will you reniain here Ion.;, Mr. Lockey?" "No; I shall return to Portland Wed nesday, and from there whl go East. You will probably see ma here again In the not distant future." Interviews with other gentlemen on the same subject brought out some in teresting facts. It sterns that the two principal objects of .Mr. Hammond's trip to Portland! were to consult with some of his associates in regard to tha advisability of raising the grade of tlie road about throe feet to make it conform to tho high water mark of theH lS3t flood, amd to consider certain changes in theYoung's Bay bridge which ,vilC muke It more modern and better adapted to meet the requirements of heavy traffic, ns well as some minor changes, all of which were but recently suggested and mrst be decided before construction can com mence. A gentleman who is posted eays that ho thinks It has been decided that It Is not necessary to change the grade, but that there will probably be some im portant changes made in the bridge. Mr. Hammond will no doubt be pre pared on his return to definitely settle rhr, irattcrs and there is little doubt that a large force of men will be kept ait work all winter. A travelling man who was here from Portlivnd yesterday says that he over heard a contract between Mr. Hammond and certain contractors ror tho construc tion of this ten miles of road, now un. der consideration In course or dictation. In a certain Portland lu'wi- nfUoa nrwi I that he is confident the contract has been let As Indicative that Eastern capital Js seeking investment here, Mr. Walter C.

It would appear from ali reports that Astoria can look ror a steady Increase in business during the winter and spring. FOR THE BATTLE SHIP.
