The following are a few isms -which
i a religions paper publishes for tlie
( benefit of readers not versed in the
j conflicting beliefs of the day :
Atheism A disbeliever in the ex
istence of God. J.
Deism A belief in the existence
of God, bu,t a denial of revealed reli
gion. Deism and rationalism are
Polytlieism A Lelief in the-universe
of God. Spinoza was a panthe
ist ami so was Hegel, a recent Ger
Unitariauism A belief in the uni
ty of God, as opposed to the orthodox
belief of a trinity in unity.
Materialism A belief that there is
nothing but matter in the universe.
What we call mind and soul are to
materialists only properties of matter.
Of course, materialists deny immortal
ity to man. Death is annihilation of
Spiritualism The opposite of ma
terialism ; originally was a belief that
jail matter is really spirit, and that
, therefore the universe is only God's
'concentrated thought. Latterly it
means those who believe in the inter
course with the spirit workU
Fatalism A belief that all events
necessarily must happen that is, are
ordained and cannot be altered.
Mohammedanism The doctrine of
the Mussulmans, who believe in the
unity ofV God, and that Mohammed
was his profit. They are fatalists.
Calvinism The leading doctrines
are original sin, particular election
and reprobation, particular redemp
tion, etiectua grace in regeneration
and perseverance of the saints.
Armenianism Is very nearly the
opposite of Calinism. Its beliefs
are : First, Conditional election and
reprobation. Second, universal re
demption limited in Us benefits only
by man's act in his failing to believe
and obey. Third, regeneration is ab
solutely essential and instantly follows
justifying faith. It is the Word of
the Holy Spirit guen of God. There
is no irresistible grace, and aposlacism
is possible. Both Calvinism and Ar
menianism believe in total depravity
and future eternal punishment.
Universal ism A belief that all
men will Je finally saved.
Buddhism Nominally believed by
one-third of the human race (tenches
that there have been so far four suc
cessive incarnations of the Deity, fol
lowed by stages of unconsciousness.
The highest god is Nirvana, or the
state of repose. The last incarnation
was called Gaud ma, 500 years before
Christ, and in after ages another will
come to lift man up. Meanwhile its
adherents are practically idolaters.
A Man who Thinks He Saw
The Rev. Mr. Dalton of High Point
preached here last Sunday in the Pres
byterian church from the text, "Sir, 1
would see Jesus." During the ser
mon he mentioned the case of a gen
tleman who was extensively known
throughout the State and doubtless
well known to many of the present
congregation, for he was a good man.
The man was thought dead by all
around his bed ; he was pulseless and
could not wink an eye or move a muscle,
and Ins preath bad ceased, when after
a few niinutts, -to the . amazement of
all, he gave signs of life and actually
recovered his health. Meeting this
man some four weeks since, Mr.
Dalton asked him if he was conscious
of what was going on while in that
condition, lie replied yes, he was
conscious of all that was going on in
the room, "but" 6ald he, "my thoughts
were not in iny room for my eyes
were feasting on the most rapturous
sight ever beheld upon this earth.",
"W hat did you see?'- asked Mr. Dal
ton. "I saw the Lord Jesus Christ,"
said the gentleman, and he declar
ed that like Paul's visions of the
third heaven the half had not
been told and that words could
not begiu to picture the grandeur of
the world he seetced floating in; he
said it imparted a happiness to his
heart unutterable, and that he was
perfectly miserable when he found
himself breathing again and back into
A Child's Dying Dream. "I was
to see a little girl, nine years old, at
High Point a 'few weeks ago," said
Mr. Dalton, whose mother before
she died about a year ago asked me
to overlook her. daughter. I Said to
the little girl : My child are you
afrakl to die?"
j "Oh no sir," she replied, "lam not
afraid to die : I went to heaven last
night" (I reckoned she dreamed it,
said Mr. Dalton) "oh, no sir, I'm not
afraid to die. I saw the angels come
down the steps, and Jesus came down
and held out his hands to me and
carried me up there and I saw mother;
no sir, I want to go ami live with

the way, we saw yesterday by the tel-

young lady in Baltimore (we forgot
the name), the belle of the city, to a
Mr. Vivian Neale, and .yet a few

Catiiiff Before Sleeping.
Man is the only animal that can be
taught to sleep quietly on an empty
stomach. The brute creation resent
all efforts to coax them to such a vio
lation of the laws of nature. The lion
roars in the forest until he has found
his prey, and when he has devoured
it he sleeps until he needs another
meal The horse will paw all night
in the stable and the pig will equeel
in the pep, refusing all rest or sleep
until they are fed. The animals which
chew their cud have their own provi
sions for a late meal just before drop
ping off to their nightly slumbers.
Man can train himself to the habit
of sleeping without a preceding meal,
but only after years of long-practice.
As he come comes into the world na
ture is too strong for him, and he
must be fed before he will sleep. A
child's stomach is small, and when
perfectly filled, if no sickness disturbs
it, sleep follows naturally and inevit
ably. As digestion goes on, the stom
ach begins to empty. A single fold
in it will make the little sleeper rest
less. Two will waken it, and if it is
hushed again to repose the nap is short,
and three folds put an end to the slum
ber. Paragoric or other narcotic may
close its eyes again, but without either
foot I or some stupefying drug it will
not sleep, no matter how healthy it
may be. Not even an aniel who
learned the art of minstrelsy in a ce
lestial choir can sing a baby to sleep
upon an empty stomach.
We use the oft-quoted illustration,
"sleeping as sweet I v as an infant," be
cause this slumber of a child follows
immediately after its st on. ach is com
pletely filled with wholesome food.
The sleep which comes to adults long
hours after partaking of food, and
1 S S B
when the stomach is nearly or quite
empty, is not alter the type of infant
ilorepose. There is all the difference
in the world between the sleep of re
freshment and i lie sleep of exhaustion.
To sleep Well, blood that swell -the
veins in the head during our busy
hours must flow back, leaving a great
ly diminished volume behind the brow
that lately throbbed with siich vehe
meuce. To digest well, this blood is
needed at the stomach, and nearer the
ton n tains of life. It is a fact establish
ed beyond a posibility of contradiction
that sleep aids this digestion, and that
the jrocess of digestion is conducive
to refreshing sleep. It needs do argu
ment to convince us of its mutual re
lation. The drowsiness which a I way
follows the well ordered meal is itself a
testimony of nature to this inter-de-
pendeuce. AT. Y. Journal of Com

How a Model Railroad is Moving to

making travel and t rathe more safe
than it was several years ago. As an
evidence of the usefulness and re
liability of these safety signal switches
it is stated that since they were put
up not a single accident by open or
misplaced switches has occurred any
where along the line, when formerly
such accidents were of frequent oc
currence For the comfort of travel
ers this summer and for all seasons
to come, the trains on this road are to
be equipped with a late invention
for arresting tlie smoke and dust. It
is claimed that the invention is a
positive success. The smoke and
dust are caught by some novel ar
rangement ot pipes aud carried along
under the cars, escaping from under the
platform of the rear car. When this
invention is put in practical use on
the Richmond & Danville, the sight
oi' the old smoky, dusty, red e red set
of travelers, will be sadly missed by
the hotel porters and others whose
habit it is to meet them at the
Though collisions are le s frequent
on the Richmond & Danville titan on
most any other roads entering here,
yet the authorities are moving to make
the road doubly safe from collisions
and have two inventions under con-
sideration. One is the telegraph pole
signal, the invention of an .Atlanta
man, and the other is a railroad
clock invented by a Penusyl vanian.
In the case of the former, the engin
eer of any moving train can tell at
exactly what spot a train coming
ahead to meet mm might be, whether
merely glancing at the poles. The
signal time clock is invented to indi
cate the intervening time between
trains. It is to be mounted similar,
to the danger signals, aud the engin
eer can readily tell by glancing at the
dial how much time has elapsed since
the preceding train passing that point.
The clock is made to run regular aud
show the hour, just like an ordinary
line piece, but an ingenius device
connecting the rail and clock-work
hrows the minute hand back to 12
when a train passes by the signal.
Then the minute hand moves on
around until the next train comes
along, when it drops back to 12 again.
Should any train not be followed by
another for an hour or longer period
then the minute hand will pause at
fifty-five minutes -and remain there
until a passing train throws it back
to 12. when it starts -on as before.
The purpose of having the hands
stop at fifty five minutes is to show
hat at least that much time time has
elapsed since a train h .s gone by
which is sufficient to indicate a clear
rack. Jaunuil- Observer.
Jlay i Kiss that Baby ?'
To a soldier, far away from home
here is no more touching sight than

While on their Way to Gettysburg,
our trooiis were marching by night
through a village, over whose gate
ways hung lighted lanterns, while
youug girls slied tears, as they watch
ed the brothers of other women march
on to possible death. A scene of the
march is thus described by the author
of "Bullet and Shell."
Stopping for a moment at the gate
of a dwelling, I noticed a young moth-
er leaning over it with a chubby
child in her arms. Above the wo
man's head swung two stable lan
terns, their light tailing upon her
face, lhe child was crowing with
delight at the strange pageant, as it
watched the armed host pass on.

Correspondence of the Landmark.
The colored boy who drew the
horse shoe nail by suction into his
lungs has been relieved of it. Sun
day evening, the 1st day of April,
John Stevenson was running, with a
horse shoe nail in his mouth, and
while panting rapidly drew it into
his windpipe and on into his lungs.
He at once began coughing, and every
1'jw minutes would cough a dry hack
ing cough. On Monday morning I
got some pulleys and tied some lines
around his ankles' aud drew him up.
Would hold him there and cause him
to cough, but it seemed to do no god.
Every time he would cough it would
seem to move upastdjag him. I did
the same thing fo or three times a
day until Weduu'ikiy
took, while I had him
violeut fit of coughing. He caught
his throat. I had no one to help me,
so I had to let him down from bis
peculiar position. I went to him and
asked him where it was. He sajrs "I
have swallowed it again." He bled
from the lungs for a few minutes
right fast. Just then he quit cough
ing and I could not produce much
j coughing after that, and he did not
feel the nail m his lung any more.
I , kept up my treatment every day
until Sunday the boy told me he
could feel the nail jagging him about
his intestines. .sti thert gave him a
dose of purgatiye medicine and on
Monday morning the nail passed out
through his bowels. Then the case
was plain to me. When he coughed
it up he was excitedJjadly and just
as it passed out of the larynx .it went
right into the pharynx and thus into
his stomach. His lung is not at all
sore now, and he is going on his way
rejoicing. T. G. Ehwin. "

is a work of extraordinary learning.
The number of works consulted in its
preparation is astounding. Thus far
but four volumes have been published.
Heading the second volume recently
we were impressed with the tacts
brought out relative to the effects of
the forests upon the fertility of the
Canaan of the Scriptures. The whole
land at the time of the conquest by
the Jews was rich aud fruitful. The
Western portion was as fertile as the
Eastern, and the country was attrac
tive aud desirable, a land of corn and
wine. But the Jews were unwise
enough in the hill country to cut
down the trees and what followed ?
Just what has occurred in all lands
where the earth was denuded and a
reckless destruction of the forests had
taken place. The whole land became
sterile. The washings became so
great that the soil was carried away
and the land of beauty and fertility
was converted into a land of barren
ness. This is the condition in the
West. In Eastern Canaan the for
ests remained and to this day the
soil is fertile.
A New Commandment.
In the seventeenth centnry the minis
ter of a certain parish in Scotland was
the famous Samuel Rutherford, the reli
gions oracle of the Covenanters and their
adherents. It is among tlie traditions
that ou a Saturday evening, at one of the
family gatherings, when Rutherford was
1 catechising his children and servants, a
stranger knocked at the door and begged
shelter for the night. The minister kind
ly received him, and asked him to take
his place with the family aud assist at
their religious exercises.
It so happened that the quest ion in the
ca tech ism which came to the stranger was
that which asks : "How many command
ments are there t" He answered, ''Elev
en." "Eleven !" exclaimed Rutherford. 1
am surprised that a mau of your age aud
appearance should not know better; what
do you meant" And he answered: 4 "A new
commandment I give unto you, that ye
love oue another.' " Rutherford was much
impressed by the answer, and they retir
ed to rest. The next morning, as he
threaded his way to church through the
thicket, he heard among the trees the
voice of the stranger at his devotions.
The elevation of the sentiments convinc
ed him that it was no common man, and,
on accosting him, tlie traveler confessed
that he was no other than the great di
vine. Archbishop Usher, the Primate of
the Church of Ireland, who well fulfilled
that new commandment which he bore to
others. He it was who had come in dis-
ruise to see Rutherford in the privacy of
his owu home. Side by side they pursu
ed their way to the little church and from
the rustic pulpit the Aicfc bishop preach
ed to the people from the words which
bad so startled his host the evening be
fore: "A new commandment I give ua-
4o you that ye love one auother." Lt
Iu tlie forests of the islands constitu

connecting link between the lemur and

the cousins of the monkeys. Like the
bats, these animals sleep iu the day-time
head downward ; but as eveuing comes
ou they sally forth, often doing great
harm to the fruit ou the neighboring
plantations. In some parts of Java they
are so numerous that it is found necessa
ry to protect the fruit trees with huge
nets. The extent of their flights through
the air is sometimes astouUhiug. They
sometimes drop to the ground aud hop
aloug with a shuffling kiud of leap, but if
they are alarmed, they spring to the near
est tree and in a moment reach its top by
a series of bouuds. Out upon the branches
they dart, and with a rush they are off
into space. Sailiug through the air like
some great bird, down they go obliquely
swift as an arrow, a hundred and fifty
feet or more, rising again iu a gracefu
cni'vp and al itrlitini; safely on a distant
tree. In these great leaps they carry
tiiir vimiirr which cluiff to tlieiu, or
