And over her mouth I leaned mv ear, liCSt there might be something I should not hear. Then out from the silence between us stole A message that reached to my inmost soul: "Why weep you to-day who hare .wept before Thatthc road was rough I must journey o'er ? Why mourn that myJips can answer not. Whenangujsh and sorrow-are both forget? Behold all my life T have lianged for rest- � -"Year e'en -when I held you upon my breast, And, now that I lie in a breathless sleep, Instead of rejoicing you sigh and weep.

Then I dried my tears, and with lifted head ; I left my mother, my beautiful dead. A NEW EASTER LESSON DKAWN BY DR. TALMAGE FROM THE STORY OP MARY MAGDALENE AKD CHRIST.

OONEAr, r- " s(Succe8BOj-*Q'^3ancej & Conrad,) & the uiglits vejy dark and the .day very dismal, he seized the two chief pillars of the palace and rticked them till they began to fall, and Ibeu, lifting the ponderous front gate from its hmges, he carried it off,crying: "1 am the resurrection and the life." That scene we celelirate tiiis morning. Handclian and Beethovian miracles of sound added to floral decorations that have turned pulpit and �gallery into BLSOmNG parterre. There are four or five things about this resurrection of Christ that none seem to have noticed. First-Our Lord in gardner's disguise. Mary Madalene, grief-struck at the earcQphagus of Christ, looks around to see if she can find the tracks of the sacrilegious rcs-urrcctiouist, and, lo, she sees some one that looks as if he had come out to water the flowers or root out the weeds of the garden or set up the reclining or fallen vine.-^ He is in a rough working dress and perhaps some of the disturbed soil adberiing to his hands and marking his garments. Mary M.igadalcue, with a face all covered with the rain of a fresh shower of weeping, charges on t his supposed workman the desecration of tlie dead, find this person incognito responds hy flinging his soul into just one word that trembled with all the sweetest rhythm of earth and Heaven, saying, "Mary!'' Through that peculiar accentuation the dis. guise tell ofl" aud she found that, instead of being an bumble gaidncr of Asia Minor, he bad charge of the banging gardens ol heaven abloom with worlds, constellations the cluster pf Jor-get-me-nots, the sua-flower chief of hH, while morning sky and midhighV aurora are the trellis ablaze likea summer -wall with carnation rose and giantsof battle.i Blessed and g:lprious mistake ot Jlary Magdalene recorded dn; my text: "Supposing him' to be the gardner." Oh, that means ithatChristis an every-day Christ for every day work iand in every day fatigue, in our most seemly hp- ^�Mn'/il-C!.'.I-�1\.�* I. ---- i_ _� -_ 1 -- jnost unventilated factory ot^Lowell or-La'n-caster, and clearer or roughest new ground amid western wilderness, and all the woriP out sewing women who have a stitch in tlie side for every stitch'they give the cloth, soifle of their cruel employers having no more chanceiof going through the door ofheafe^ than of going through the ej'e of that bro^n needle which has just fallen on the bare'flofiS' from the pricked and bleeding fingers of tffe consumptive sewing girl. Away with 'Sll your absurd-talk about "hypostatic union" and "snteriology of the Council of Trent;"-aud your metaphysics of religion, which have well-nigh driven religion:out':bfi'the woridy and pass along this gardner's coat tilLaltna-' tions may touch the hem of it and leel the - THRILL OF CHRISTLY BROTHERHOOb; '4 not supposing him to be a Csesar, not supposing him to be a gardner I That is what he^3i Josiah Wedgewood, struggling oh amidth^ dust and heat ef the potteries until he ca^, make for Queen Charlotte the first royal ta-;; ble service of English manufacture. Tbat helps James Watt, amid derision and scorn,; until he can put on wheels that thunderbblt of power that roars by day and njght; in .thc:^ furnace of every locomotive engih^ tendom. That helps Hugh miller, arnid the. quarries of Cromarty, until he makes tlie, rocks so many volumes of this world's bio-' grapby and finds the footsteps of the Creator in the "Old Bed Sandstone." What the^ world wants is a Christ for the printer's office and a Christ for the cotton-mill and a Christ for the kitchen and Christ for the artist's studio aud a Christ for the gardner while spading and planting and irrigating his parterre. We want some day to see Christ-in his royal robe and diademed, a heayenly equestrian tuouhting the white horse. But from this Easter of 1884 to oar last EaBteDtjn' earth we want to see Him as Mary saw Him at the daybreak, "supposing him to be a gardner." Another thing that has not been noticed in this resurrection of Christ is that He made His first post niortem appearance to her who had once been the seven-deviled Mag dalene. One would have thought ihat Christ's first posthumous appearance would have been to someone illiistrious lor goodness.- There are saintly women who always were saintly; saintly in their cradle, saintly in their girlhood, saintly in womanhood, fit models for a Madonna. Ahnost every family circle ha:s had a saintly aunt In my circle it was a saintly Aunt PhcEbe. In "yours it was a saintly Aunt Martha or Aunt Ruth.- But not so this one of the text. While �we .are not to confound her with the repentant coartesah, who worshipfully made her long lockis do the work ofa towel at Christ's foot-washing, -jve neVisrtheiess must remember that'she had been exorcised of seven-devils. What a Capitol of demohology she must have been. What a. chorus of diabolism! Seven, .devils! Two for the eyes, two for the"hands", two for the feet, and oue for the tongue.-^ But all of them extirpated, and now she is as good us once she was bad, and lo,'8he is the -fir&tAvitness. of the resurrection. What does that mean? That Christ can out of the greatest sinners make greatest saints. That and women who seemed'to die before their work was done.; Shadows on the graves.c^ all the children:because we can not understand why such; a beautiful craft should have been launched to be wrecke*6ne mile . OUTSIDE TnK HARBORi ~ But what'had Mary to do in order to see clear through the mausoleum? Only to wait.

But.his body and mind jpei-ished as the result of this exploration.

It jf&s in the morning twilight; that Mary Magdalen saw. the supposed gardner. i Another thing unnoticed in this resurrec: tibn" of Christ ia his pathetic credentials.. |Hpw do you know but that he was only an [earthly gardener ? His clothes said he was. The flakes of ground upon him said he was; How are we sure that this was the Christ instead of the gardener ? Ah'," before that ';day had gone he showed to his disciples his hands and side. The .three scars were his credentials. Three paiagraphs written on ridged or depressed'cuticle-one on the right ,palni, the other: on the left pailm, the other amid the ribs. Scars! Scars! They scattered the incognito. Tbat is the way they .knew hiui. That is the way we shaU recognize him. When we meet. Scars all over him, for that Easter he showed to his disciples only a part of his credentials. What does that mean? That we will all, among other "things, recognize each in heayen by the old scars ol earth, scars of accident, scars of bereavement, scars of persecution, scars of betrayal, scai-s x>f battle,. scars of hard work, scars'of?;.sickness, scars of old age. Our bodies areigoing to-be remodeled and glorified ^ but we are going to keep the scars. Christ's resuiTected body with the scars all on make me think so. Why, before we get out of this: world the most ot us will be scare all over.

If he had been like soine people he would have said: "Let me see, how many, devils did you once have. One, two, three, four, five, six, seven ! What a lei-rible piece you were when I first rnct you !" Most women of pur day would have steered clear of her. � The only thing I have to say ,against woiiieu is that they arc ,so merciless upon their flillen sisters aud show so little of; the spirit of Christ toward Mary Magdalen. , BUT THIS SUPPOSED GARDNER. put all reminiscence aud uU anticipation and all grace aud all-pathos and all heaven into a word ot four letters when he said-^"aya-r//.'" His first appearance after mortuary silence, not lo some Bible Elizabeth or Bible Esther or Bible Hannah, but to Mury. Not to the Mary's against whom wereadnothing adverse. Not Mary the mother of Jesus or Mary the mother of James or Mary the sister of Martha, but to tiie seveii-deyiled: Mary- iTpt only pardon but highest revelation for the worst of folks. There is a man of seven devils-devil of avarice, devil of hate, devil of pride, devil of strong drink,devil of impurity, devil of falsehood, devilof indolence: Christ can drive them all out, 7 or 70! A few days ago I crossed the new cantilever bridge wb.ich spans the Niagara bridge 900 feet long over a chasm of 859 feet froni bluff to bluff, but had no fear, because at the test-' ing of that bridge last December, the 20tb, 23 locomotives and 32'loaded gravel ears w.eut smoothly over it, tens of thousarids ol people on the Canadian and American banks applauding fepectators. And howevei^ long the train of our mortal ueceifeities, we are to remember that the bridge of God's  mercy, spauing the awful chasm of sin, has been sue-; cessfully tested by the full teenage of tbepar-doned crimes of all ages, church' miliLuuC watching from one bankand church -irium-'phant watching from the other bank.

TH:^ GOO D TEPLARS' PLATFOR The following was adopted at the Right 1869: mall intoxicating the same namcj shops of various klHBs are noticed on the right and- left. Filagree jewelery of Mexicau manufacture is' plenty^ and rude pottery: made by the Pueblo Indians abounds on every hand. The grotesque shape and hideous appearance'of many pieces: strikes one as beuag the relics of barbarism aur age long, since past. Here to� may be seen wicker ware woven closely enough- to hold water. Here and theie may be seen the dark skinned workiiien in. their filth and dirt. A, blanket of brilliant color is loosely fixed: about their person, and a bright colored: handkerchief tied around their heads. The dusky clerks are anxious to display their wares with a hope of making sale of it. Many interesting relics may be seen in._wMidering around the city. Days might be spent here viewiugfSfee. linksjofjiistory that unite this semibarbarous city, over which centuries have rolled, with the present age. Now and then a Navajo Indian may be riiet on the street. In their wild and savage state, thiey seem ill at ease, even here, but occasionally come in to sell some fur.j or game, or perchance one of those peculiar striped.and closely woven blankets that if held by the corners will hold water m the center. It is a wonder, how, in their rude way, they can manufacture such a texture from the bark of trees, or grass of the mountains. Those blankets sell at from $35 to $50 a piece. The Navajo reservation lies north and west of Santa Fe and embraces 100 miles square. They number about 17,000 souls, andean readily put 4,000 warriors on the war path if so minded: Th6 rolling waves cteinigration is hedging them in on allsides^ and if they are compelled to live oit their? own miserable, barren^ lands, they -ivill be driven to the stern necessity of either stealing, begging, fighting or starving; what their future.'wilt be, is.a problem hard to solve. They: own 1,000,000 sheep and goats, 15,000 horses and a few cattle, which find a range maiinly off the reservation proper, and the stock men of New Mexico and southern: Colorado are pressing them harder every year and demand of the government that they be driven on to their own lands. This they refuse to do, claiming; all that country is theirs and that they intend to hold it. Though the wealthiest of all the tribes they must soon become the victims otadvancing.civilization; and; be so crippled in;theh- ability, to maintain themselves as to perish or be crushed by a terrible war.

Now, I tell you they are to be 'means of recoguiza-tion. Once more, you have not noticed that after Christ had lain'from Friday to Suudy lifeless in a hot climate, where sanitary prudence compels burial the next day, and where there is no ice to* retard dissolution. He is not only exhumated, but positively robust as one who 13 bronzed of out-door work, Mary not taking Him for.an invalid just got out of a hospital or a corpse risen from the tomb, but "supposing Him to be a gardener," Ifealthy by the upturning of the soil and a life in the sunshine. After-His interment every cellular tissue had broken down and artery and nerve and brain' �were a wre6k physiological.. Yet here He is roseate and swarthy and complete. Well, if God could turn such a i mortuary state into such a radiant animation, that settles it that whatever may have biecome of the bodies of our Christian'friends they can be reconstructed, .all' the >nerves strung, the bones jointed;:the'optic nerve relumed, the ear drum vibratihg and all the body set iipi' except its imperfections and worldly uses, for which we need no resurrection.'
