It fell on a day that JSlisha passed toShn

Tho vast .majority of travelers must
then bo entertained at private abodo.
Htoe cornet Elisha, a servant of tho
Lord, on a divino inisbion, and he must

valley of Esdriplon is offered him in a

on, a table from which to eat, a candle

.which to slumber tho whole establish
ment belonging to a great and good wo
man. Her husband it, seems, was a godly
man, but ho was entirely overshadowed
by his wife's excellencies, just as now
you sometimes find in a household tho
wife tho center of dignity and influence
and power, not by any arrogance or pre
sumption, but by superior intellect and
force of moral nature wielding domestic
affairs and at tho same time supervising
all financial and business affairs, the
wife's hand on tho shuttle, on tho banking-house,
on tho worldly business. You
seo hundreds of men who are successful
only because there is a reason at home
why they are successful.
If a man marry a good, honest soul, he
makes his fortune. If ho marry a fool,
tho Lord help him! The wife may be
the silent partner in the firm, thero may
bo only masculine voices down on ex
change, but thero of tentimo comes from
the home circle a potential and elevating
A SUPERIOR WOMAN.
This woman of my text was tho su
perior of her husband. He, as far as I
can understand, was what wo often seo
in our day a man of large fortune and
only a modicum of brain, intensely quiet,
sitting a long while in the same place
without moving band or foot-if ypn
say "yes," responding "yes;" if you say
"no," responding "no" inane, eyes half
shut, mouth wide open, maintaining his
position in society only becauso he has a
large patrimony. But his wife, my text
says, was a great woman.
Her name has not come down to us.
She belonged to that collection of people
who need no name to distinguish them.
What would title of duchess or princess
or queen what would escutcheon or
gleaming diadem be to this woman of
my text, who, by her intelligence and
her behavior, challenges the admiration
of all ages? Long after the brilliant
women of the court of Louis XV have
been forgotten, and tho brilliant women
of tho court of Spain have been forgot
ten, and the brilliant women who sat on
mighty thrones have been forgotten.
8ouio grandfather will put on his spec
tacles, and holding tho book the other
side the light read to his grandchildren
the story of this great woman of Shu
nem who was so kind and courteous and
Christian to tho good prophet Elisha.
Yes, she was a great woman.
In the first place, she was great in her
hospitalities. Uncivilized and barbarous
nations honor this virtue. Jupiter had
tho surname of tho hospitable, and he
was said especially to avenge tbo wrongs
of strangers. Homer extolled it in his
verse. The Arabs are punctilious upon
this subject, and among some of their
tribes it is not until the ninth day of
tarrying that the occupant has a right to
ask his guest, "Who and whence art
thou?" If this virtue is so honored even
among barbarians, how ought it to be
honored among those of us who believe
in tho Bible, which commands us to use
hospitality one toward another withqut
Of course I do not mean under this
cover to give any idea that I approve of
that vagrant class who go around from
placo to place ranging their whole life
time perhaps under tbo auspices of
somo benevolent or philanthropic socle
ty, quartering themselves on Christian
families, with a great pilo of trunks in
the hall and carpetbag portentous of
tarrying. Thero is many a country par
sonago that looks out week by week
upon the ominous arrival of wagon with
creaking wheel and lank horse and di
lapidated driver, come under tho aus
pices of some charitable institution to
spend a few weeks uud canvass the
neighborhood. Let no such religious
tramps take advantage of this beautiful
virtue of Christian hospitality. a ;
GRACES OP U09FITALrrV.
Not so much the sumptuousness of
your diet and the regality of your abode
will impress the friend' or the stronger
that steps across your threshold as the
warmth of yonr greeting, the informal
ity of your reception, the reiteration by
grasp and by look and by a thousand
attentions, insignificant attentions, of
your earnestness of welcome. There
will be high appreciation of your wel

and there is not a state in the Union in
which I have not beard the affability of
the usher of our church complimented.
But I have entered churches where there
was no hospitality. A gtranger would
stand in tho vestibule for awhile and
then make pilgrimage up the long aisle.
No door opened to him until, flushed
and excited and embarrassed, be started
backagain, and coming to some half filled

graco of Christian hospitality.
A good man traveling in the far west,
in the wilderness, was overtaken by
night and storm, and ho put in at a
cabin. He saw firearms olong tho beams
of the cabin, and he felt alarmed. He
did'not know but that he had fallen into
a den of thieves. He sat thero greatly
perturbed. After awhilo tho man of
tho house camo home with a gun on his
shoulder and set it down in a corner.
Tho stranger was still moro alarmed.
After awhile the man of the houso
whispered with his wife, and the stran
ger thought his destruction was being
Then tho man. of tho houso came for
ward and said to the stranger: "Stran
ger, we are a rough and rudo people out
here, and we work hard for a living. We
make our living by hunting, and when
we come to tho nightfall we are tired,
and we are apt to go to bed early, and
before retiring wo are always in the hab
it? of reading a chapter from the word
of God and making a prayer. If you
don't like such things, if you will just
step outside tho door until we get
through I'll fie greatly obliged to you."
Of .course tho stranger tarried in the
, and, the old hunter took hold of
the horns of the altar and brought down
the blessing of God upon his household
and upon the stranger within their gates.
Rude but glorious Christian hospitality It
WELCOME GODB MESSENGER.
Again, this woman in my text was
great in her kindness toward God's mes- J
senger. Elisha may have been a stran-'
ger in that household, but as she found
out he had cOmo on a divino mission he
was cordially welcome. Wo have a
great many books in our day about the
hardships of ministers and tho trials of
Christian ministers'. I wish somebody
would write a book about the joys of
thi Christian minister about tho sym
pathies all around him, about the kind-.
nesses, about the genial considerations
Does sorrow come to our home and is
thero a shadow on the cradle, there are
hundreds of hands to help, and many
who weary not through the long night
watching, and hundreds of prayers go
ing up that God would restore tho sick.
Is there a burning, brimming cup of ca
lamity placed on tho pastor's table, are
there not many' to help him to drink of
that cup and who will not be comforted
because ho is stricken? Oh, for some
body to write a book about the rewards
of the Christian minister about his sur
roundings of Christian sympathy!
This woman of tho text was only a
type of thousands of men and women
who come down from tho mansion and
from tho cot to do kindness to the Lord's
servants. I suppose the men of Shunem
had to pay the bills, but it was the large
hearted Christian sympathies of the
women of Shunem that looked after the
Again, this woman in the text was
great in her behavior under trouble.
Her only son had died on her lap. A
very bright light went out in that house

tersely when ho says, "He eat on her
the writer goes on to say that she ex

ity, this woman was great in trouble.
THE SAHARA OP SORROW.
Where are the feet that have not been
blistered on tho hot sands of this great
Sahara? Where are the shoulders that
have not been bent under the burden of
gneff Where is tno snip sauing over
glassy sea that has not after awhile been
caught in a cyclone? Wherp is the gar
den of oarthjy comfort but trouble hath
hitched upjts fiery and panting team and
gone through it with burning plowshare
of disaster? Under the pelting of ages
of suffering tho great heart of the world
has burst with woe.
Navigators tell us about thoriver3, and
the Amazon and tho Danubo and the
Mississippi have been explored, but who
can tell the depth or length of tho great
river of sorrow made up of tears and
blood rolling through all lands and all
ages, bearing the wreck of families and
of communities and of empires foam-t
ing, writhing, boiling with tho agonies
of 6,WXJ years? Etna and Cotopaxi and
Vesuvius havo been described, but who
has ever sketched tho volcano of suffer
ing retching up from its depths the lava
and the scoria and pouring them down
the sides to whelm thonations? Oh, .if I

Again, this woman of my toxt was
great in her application to domestic du
ties. Every pictnro is a home picture,
whether sho is entertaining an Elisha, or
whether sho is giving careful attention
to her sick boy, or whether she is appeal
ing for the restoration of her property
every pictnro in her caso is a homo pic
ture. Those are not disciples of this
Shunemite woman who, going out to at
tend to outside charities, neglect tho duty
"of home tho duty of wife, of mother, of
daughter. No faithfulness in public ben
efaction can ever atouo for domestic neg
ligence. Thero has been many a mother who
by iudefatigablo toil has reared a large
family of children, equipping them for
the duties of life with good manners and
large intelligence and Christian princi
ple, starting them out, who has done
more for tho world than many another
woman whoso name has sounded through
all the lands and through ail centuries.

When tho prophet wanted to reward her
for her hospitality by asking Bomo pref
erment from the king, what did4 she
say? She declined it. Sho said: "I dwell
among my own people," as much as to
say: "I am satisfied with my lot. -All I
want is my family and my friends arpund
me. I dwell among my own people." Oh,
what a rebuke to the strife for precedence
in all ages!
I How many thpre are who want to get
great architecture and homes furnished
' with all art, all painting, all statuary,
who have not enough taste to distinguish
between gothio and byzantine, and who
could not tell a figure in plaster of paris
from Palmer's "White Captive," and
would not know a boy's penciling from
Bierstadt's "Yqsemite" men whq buy

these libraries when they havo hardly

striving to havo things as well as their

bors, and in the struggle vast fortunes
are exhausted and business firms thrown
into bankruptcy, and inen of reputed
honesty rush into astounding forgeries.
i Of course I say nothing against lefine

sumptuousness of diet, lavishness in art,
neatness in apparel thero is nothing
against thomJn the BlblQ or out of the

WOMAN'8 DEBT TO CHRISTIANITY.
Yea, this woman of tho text was great
in her piety, faith in God, and, s)ie was
not oshamod to talk about it before idol
aters. All, woman will never appreciate
what she owes to Christianity until she
knpws and sees the degradation of her
sex undor paganism and Mohammedan
ism. Her very birth considered a mis
fortune. Sold like cattle in tho sham
bles. Slavo of all work, and at last her
body fuel for thofuneraLpyroof her hus
band. AboYO the shriek of tho fire worship
ers in India and above the rumbling of
the juggernauts I hoar the million
voiced groan of wronged, insulted, bro
ken hearted, downtrodden woman. Her
tears have fallen in tho Nilo and Tigris
and tho La Plata and on the steppes of
of Tartary. She has been dishonored in
Turkish garden and Persian palace and
Spanish Alhambra. Her little ones
have been sacrificed in tho Ganges.
There is not a groan, or a dungeon, or un
island, or a mountain, or a river, or
sea but could tell a story of tho outrages
heaped upon her.
But, thanks to God, this glorious Chris
tianity comes forth, and all tho chains of
this vassalage are snapped, and she rises
np from ignominy to exalted sphere and
becomes tbo affectionate daughter, the
gentle wife, the houorod mother, tbq
useful Christian. Oh, if Christianity lias
done so much for woman, surely woman
will become its most ardent advocate
and its sublimest exemplification!
When I come to speak of womanly in
fluence, my mind always wanders off to
one model the aged ono who, 27 years
ago, we put away for the resurrection.
About 87 years ago, and jnit before their
marriage day, my father and mother
stood up in the old meeting houBeat
Somerville, N. J., and took upon thorn
th vows of the Christian. Through a
long life of vicissitude she lived harm
ipg-iy and usefully and came to hetend
jn peace. No child of want ever cama
to her door and was turned empty away,
. jj0 one jn sorrow came to her but was
comforted. No one asked her tho way
( to be saved but she jointed him to tho
crow, xi pen tne anget ui me ww w
neighbor's dwelling, she was there to re
joice at tbestarting of another immortal
spirit. When tho angel of death came to
a neighbor'B dwelling, eho was there to
robe the departed for the burial.
We lad often beard her, when leading
. .. : . ii .-. ,A M
family prayers in the abwnce or my
dren Wealth or lionor, but I do ask that
they all may be the subjocts Of thy com
fortius Kraool" Her It children brought
into tho kingdom of God, she had but
ono moro wish, and that was that sho
might seo her long absent missionary
son, and when tho ship from China an
chored in New York harbor and tho long
absent ono passed over tho threshold of
his paternal homo sho said, "Now, Lord,
letyest thou thy servant depart in peace,
for mino pyes havo soen thy salvation."
Tho prayer was soon answered.
It was aii autumnal day when wo gath
ered from afar and found only tho house
from which the eoul had fled forever.
Sho looked very natural, the hands very
much as when they wero employed in
kindness for her children. Whatever else
wo forgot, wo novor forgot tho look of
mother's hands. As wo stood thero by
tho casket wo could not help but soy,
"Don't she look beautiful?" It was a
cloudless day when, with lieavy hearts,
wo carried her out to tho last resting
place. Tho withered leaves crumbled
under hoof and wheel as we passed, and
tho sun shone on the Raritan river until
it looked like fire; but more calm and
beautiful and radiant was the setting
sun of that aged pilgrim's life. No moro
toil, no moro tears, no moro sickness, no
more death. Dear mother! Beautiful

A few da.ys ago r ptory was published,
of a check for 4 cents drawn on a Now
York national bank and posted as a curi
osity in the office of a hpavy broker in
Wall street. T. P. Roberts of this city
has a draft which as a curiosity out
ranks tho 4 cent check and is on a par
with tho famous Bank of England note,
for a penny.
From 1880 to 1888 Mr. Roberts was
postmaster at Hazen, N. D.,'and on Jan,
1, 1891, in settlement of his final account
with tho authorities at Washington, o
received ,a draft on the postmaster at
Chicago for 1 cent and signed an impos
ing formal-receipt, which was sent back
to Washington. Tho draft was in tho
usual form, and tho paper on which ty
was engraved must have boon worh
nearly tys face value. Checkmarks uppn
it showed that it' had passed through
many hands, nd ,)t boro tho signatures
of those high ip authority.
A careful computation shows that the
issuing of that draft for 1 cent cost the
postofuco.dopartmQnt in time and woges
at leofltJjM. ' Mr. Robeits has been of
fered $20 for it as a curiosity, but says
ho won't part with it for several times
that sum. Somo time after he got
tho draft Mr. Roberts received a notifi
cation from Washington that unless it
was presented within six months it
would not be paid without renewal, but
ho never has been reduced to such finan

havo it cashed.
