rk, 'mid the Fiery Dew that drips, Redder, faster, through black Eclipse, How Sodom, to-night, shall sup! (Thus the Kings, in Apocalypse, The traders of souls, and crews of ships, Standing afar, with pallid lips-- While Babylon's Smoke goes up!) Yet, dree your weird!--though an hour may blight, In treason, a century's fame-- Trust Greed and Spite!--sith Reason and Right Lie cold, with Honor and Shame-- And learn anon — as on that dread night When, the dead around and the deck aflame, From John Paul's lip the fierce word came-- “We have only begun to fight!” Ay, 'tis at hand!--foul lips, be dumb! Our Armageddon is yet to come! But cheery bugle and angry drum, With volleyed rattle and roar, And cannon thunder-throb, shall be drowned, That day, in a grander, stormier sound- The Land, from mountain to shore, Hurling shackle and scourge and stake Back to their Lender of pit and lake-- ('Twas Tophet leased them of yore)-- Hell, in her murkiest hold, shall quake, As they ring on the damn<

this day eminently. The prodigious blasphemies; contempt of God and Christ, denying of Him, contempt of Him and His ordinances, and of the Scriptures: a spirit visibly acting those things foretold by Peter and Jude; yea, those things spoken of by Paul to Timothy!

He says (Second to Timothy, Chapter third, verses second, third, fourth), In the Last Days perilous times shall come; men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, and so on. But in speaking of the Antichristian state, he told us (First to Timothy, Chapter fourth, verses first and second), that in the latter days that state shall come in; not the last days, but the latter,—wherein there shall be a de

Du Chaillu, Paul Belloni, 1838- Explorer; born in New Orleans, La., July 31, 1838. He is best known by the results of two exploring trips to west Africa, during which he discovered and examined considerable territory almost unknown previously, and added sixty species of birds and twenty of mammals to the zoology of Africa. His accounts of the gorillas and pygmies excited a large interest among scientists, and for a time many of his assertions were sharply contradicted as being impossible; but subsequent explorations by others confirmed all that he had claimed. His publications include Explorations and adventures in equatorial Africa; A journey to Ashango land; Stories of the Gorilla country; Paul Belloni du Chaillu. Wild life under the equator; My Apingi kingdom; The country of the dwarfs; The land of the midnight sun; The Viking age; Ivar, the Viking; The people of the Great African forest; The land of the long night, etc.

Jones, John Paul 1747- Naval officer; born in Kirkbean, Scotland. July 6, 1747. Before he was eighteen years old he commanded a vessel that traded with the West Indies. Jones came to Virginia in 1773, inheriting the estate of his brother, who died there. Offering his services to Congress, he was made first lieutenant in the navy in December, 1775, when, out of gratitude to General Jones, of North Carolina, he assumed his name. Before that he was John Paul. He was a bold and skilful sea-rover, gathering up many prizes. Made captain in the fall of 1776, he raised the first flag ever displayed on a United States ship-of-war the Alfred. He destroyed the Port Royal (N. S.) fisheries, capturing all the vessels and freight. In the summer of 1777 he sailed in the Ranger to Europe, and in February, 1778, received from a French commander the first salute ever given to the American flag by a foreign man-of-war. In April he scaled the walls of Whitehaven, in England, on the border

army of France, and, returning to Canada, built churches and a fort at Longueil. He fought the English assailants of Quebec under Phipps in 1690, and was made baron and governor of Montreal in 1700. Becoming commandant-general of Canada, he prepared to meet the expedition against Quebec under Walker in 1711. In 1720 he was governor of Three Rivers, and again of Montreal in 1724. His influence over the Indians was very great. and in 1726 the Senecas allowed him to rebuild Fort Niagara. Paul, Sieur de Maricourt, who was born in Montreal, Dec. 15, 1663, and died there March 21. 1704, distinguished himself under his brother Iberville in Hudson Bay. He commanded an expedition against the Iroquois, made peace with them in 1701, and acquired great influence over them. Joseph, Sieur de Serigny, was born in Montreal in July, 1668; died in Rochefort, France, in 1734. In 1694 and 1697 he commanded squadrons to assist his brother Iberville in Hudson Bay, and brought over emigrants to

the expense. . . . The bill, if it becomes a law, must at the very threshold arrest the resumption of specie payments, for, were the holders of the United States notes suddenly willing to exchange them for much less than their present value, payment even in silver is to be postponed indefinitely. For years United States notes have been slowly climbing upward, but now they are to have a sudden plunge downward, and in every incompleted contract, great and small, the robbery of Peter to pay Paul is to be foreordained. The whole measure looks to me like a fearful assault upon the public credit. The losses it will inflict upon the holders of paper money and many others will be large, and if the bill, without further radical amendments, obtains the approval of the Senate, it will give the death-blow to the cardinal policy of the country, which now seeks a large reduction of the rate of interest upon our national debt. Even that portion now held abroad will come back in a stampede to

s simply telling us what God is doing in His world, and evolution is simply explaining the way in which His work is done. At bottom, all this is religious truth, of the most fundamental character; and, if Christian theology is true theology, it must include the truths of science and of evolution. Such an inclusion makes needful some important reconstructions of theological theory. It substitutes for our mechanical theories of creation the thought of the immanent God, who, in the words of Paul, is above all, and through all, and in us all; nay, it gives us also that doctrine of the immanent Christ——the Logos, the infinite Reason and Love, of whom the same apostle speaks in words of such wonderful significance; in whom we have our redemption, the forgiveness of our sins; who is the image of the invisible God, the first-born of all creation; for in Him were all things created, in the heavens and upon the earth, things visible and things invisible, whether thrones or dominions or pri
nbrough. Stone's men faced both north and west, and were in formidable position on a ridge and behind a stone fence. To his right was Cutler, and then Baxter and Paul. These last two brigades, says General Hunt, took post behind the stone walls of a field. Baxter faced to the west and Paul to the north. These, then, were the Paul to the north. These, then, were the posts of the six infantry brigades of the First corps, and formed the left of the Federal line. Buford's cavalry was mainly on the left. To their right, the Eleventh corps, under General Howard, took post as it arrived on the field. General Schurz's two brigades, under Schimmelfennig and Krzyzanowski, were on Reynolds' immediants, including the Fifty-fifth North Carolina, had also joined Daniel in his persistent endeavors. The success of this part of the line had not been easily won. Paul's brigade went to reinforce Baxter, and the whole Federal First corps was now engaged. At one time Daniel's line was brought to a halt on the railroad cut, which
