was the scene at noon. Here came
iiiaivhing out of camp the Second
Ittigude, ulioiit '.'nil strung, with
(ien. Y. I,. London at it head, and
next ufter came the Third Brigade,
of about the same Htreugth. with
t !eu. James I'.illels as its leader.
These took position along the Int
uit of the s.arious field, and u fine
background the low woods made
for the "thin, gray, line,'' dashed
with the viid seal let of the Hags.
The two ether brigades, the First,
lien. P. ('. Cailtou, aud the Fourth,
(Jen. .1. St. H ay, had not so inuny
men in ranks, but their command

Presently, Major (ienerul Julian
8. Carr, cotuinantliug the division,
appeared, walking down the slope,
with Slaj. Sam Smith and Jack
lteinliar.lt beside him, and a well
mounted stair riding behind biui.
There were (iens, William 1". Uob

The parade was regularly formed,
headed by the. cadet band, followed
by the carriages wilhtieii. Hansom

Next came the veteran lifu and
drum corps, and lut music, it
mudc-musie which thrilled! Then
came the long line, two by two.
The route led past the Agricultural
nnil Slecliaiiit al College. The ca
dels, lined up alongside the road
way, gave tlm veterans a rousing
reirntion. How lustily they cheered
the old fellows, the generals, the
Hags, the old time music, and loud

with those or 10 years ago. It aits
like a meeting of the past and the

of honor shone upon breasts, w hile
all kinds of gay badges divided the
honors in colors w ith the red und

and tossed along the line. It was
a gay pageant so far as color went,
and the veterans marched in their
liest style, though legs aud anus
might be missing, and despite
liowed shoulders and snowy hair.
They were more or less uear the
"l rent lMvide." but they were
brave and gay to the last, and
their cheering was about as vigor-
ins as iu the sixties. Their part in
the day was the feature of it, aud

was ashamed of you, and almost
ashamed to be in your audience.
It was a long way below the si anil

only cunsolatiou I could derive was
that it was so abominable aud so
far beyond the bounds of the re-
sjiectuble that even those iu your
congregation who did uot know
what Christianity is, would have no
idea that it had anything to do
with what you were saying.
"Of course, the ridiculousness ol
the Mrforuinuce was only enhanced
by the imuieusity of your preten

some hope for you, even with what

Dow ie as Orator.
"If the prosperity of I Kim ie owed
much to auy one thing it would
seem to be to oratory the appeal
of eloquent arguments to vast au
dieuees," says I. K. Friedman in
the Noveuilier Everybody's; "yet
iu auy digiiilied or adequate con
sideration of the word the prophet
is uo orator at ull. He has no de
livery worthy of cousitleratiou, and
bis voice from the platform is far
from pleasing or thrilling. His
diction and bis style are character
ized by coarseness and vulgarity,
nit her thuu by elegance or a fine
rhetorical sense. I heard him de
clare from the stage auditorium
that he was the the spiritual Elijah
the Second, when his ptos'rity
was at high tide, and when if he
were sincere he should have been
solemn: aud his address was the
most veritable bodge podge of bib
lical text, rank nonsense, horse
play, ubuse, commands for Halle
lujahs aud Aniens from his audi
ence, silly and senile side remaiks
to his wife the vulgar odds and
the tawdry ends of everything
having uo more to do with Elijah
than Klia. It was the performance
of the mouiitcliauk through aud
through, and it is but fuir to con
clude that those of his followers
who foil ml enjoyment and instruc
tion in it are such among whom
the mountebank seeks patronage."
How Inspiration Came to Dowie.
Au interesting account uf how
Dowie, the prophet, found his vo
cation is told us follows:
"Oue uight, iu Slelbotirne, there
swept over his consciousness like
an inspiration the full force of the
sixteenth chapter of St. Mark: 'He
that bclieveth aud is baptized shall
bo saved. ... In my name
shall they cast out devils. . . .
They shall lay hands ou the sick,
and they shall recover.' His im
agination was fired with the lilea
that he was the prophet foretold by
Miilachi, und on this inspiration
be founded what is supposititiotisly
new in his creed and built the foun
dation of bis really immense for
tune. He laid bauds on bis wife's
head, prayed, and cured her of
headache, aud then, as a wit will
havo it, he proceeded to lay hands
on everybody ant! everything else.
Those who know Dowie say that
from early life he 'hud visions' and
that he manifested all those symp
toms which the alienist would put
under the general head of 'religious
hvstcrut ; if this lie so, it would
offer a plea for bis sincerity. His
wife und others cured, and the le
gions of the faithful increasing by
virtue of these proofs of miraculous
powers, Dowie at once started to
form the Divine Healing Associa
tion, which developed later ou into
the larger organization of the In
ternational Divine Healing Associ
ation, with Dowie us its president
Dowie the Business Man.
"John Alexander Powie, the
prophet of Zion, is shrewdly up to
date in his business methods. There
is probably no business house iu
the States quicker to adopt modern
