.Scene that Caused Strong Men
to Veep A Ireeher"s Pain
Xtir York Sun, V2.
The Rev. William C. McCracken, in St'.
Mark's church on Sunday evening, said
that his heart had hardly yet recovered'
from its many stabs, and- that it was pain
ful to recall his experience in Grenada,
Miss., but, because once, while he was a
missionary, the Ladies' Aid Society of St.'
Mark's had upheld his hands when he
needed support, he felt compelled to com
ply with the request of the rector, the
Rev. Dr. Rylance, to relate, his experience
there. The fever lay upon the little town
for seventy-five long days. Of .the forty
or fifty persons-present in his cnurclu on
the Sabbath when the yellow fever first
broke out, thirty are now dead. It was
decided not to hold another service in the
church, but his organist, a good woman,
whose memory he loved to dwell on.
cause it was the last that she
heard. In her innocent and beau
tiful simplicity she thought that her
reCtor was going- to suffer privation and
hardship -on account ofthe outbreak of the
fever. She did not know of the North's
generosity. She died too soon, u lnle
4sick she begged the rector to take a little
money she had saved. It was all in a small
purse. She grew sicker rapidly. He took
the purse, saying to her, '"Now, I have it.
Be satisfied and get well." "Within a few
hours she died. That purse was to him a
sacred thing. Her desire had been, to have
a cross placed on the altar. By accident
he had told the circumstance of her death
to a clergyman in New. York. "Go," he
said, "and buy such a cross as she desired,
but do not let it be a cheap one. Use her
money if you will so far' as it will go and I
will pay for the rest." The next week after
that last service inMhe church, one-half of
those who had attended died.
"Then," Mr. McCracken said, "we held
service in the Court House. I remember
that it was the only time in my life that I
broke down in the service. When I came
to the prayer, ' In time of great sickness
and mortality,' a gentleman began to cry,
and in a few minutes we were all sobbing.
I was for a time unable to proceed, but 1
remained on my knees and strength came
to inc. I finished the prayer, but that end
ed the service. The next week half of
those that attended that service were dead.
I" "well remember the first funerals in my
parish. Three sisters and their mother
were stricken down. I could not get a fe
male to attend them. At last I asked a
man who had had a bad character, but who
had been converted, to go and wait at the
bedside of the sickest of these women. lie
did so. She died, and at her funeral were
only that man, the undertaker, and myself.
Soon another sister died, and at her funer-.
al were only the undertaker and I. The
third sister was buried without a service.
At 9 o'clock one evening I talked with
her. I thought 'that she would re
cover. . Early the next morning,
while riding in from a suburb, I
passed an undertaker's wagon containing a
coffin. When I arrived in town I learned
that the coffin was hers. The third who
died in my church was a beautiful girl.' I
loved her for her Christian character. Her
mother had been stricken down. We did
not dare to let her know of her daughter's
death. We had to put the hodyiu a coffin
up stairs, and carry it down a rear stairway
outside of the building. I was troubled to
know where to hold the service. At last
ltold the undertaker to set the coffin on the
sidewalk. As 1 began to read the service
several persons who were passing stopped
and, baring their heads, reveutly knelt.
Tears filled my eyes. I did not see the book
I held. I looked through the book and
the coffin lid at the girl herself. None who
knelt about that coffin now survive. I
saw men break down like children. They
acted like children and died like children,
but without the beautiful faith of children.
Aud I saw brave girls go from house to
house till the stroke came upon thqm, and
then saw theni die without repining. From
my experience in Grenada I have learned
that 'As thy da vs. so shall thy strength

last. But there will be lapse of public ex
citement. The curtain will be hardly down
on the pageant ere it will rise again on a
serious piece. The Chambers are opened,
and the election of the Senatorial electors
has just taken place. The pilot of the new
play is known in advance ; clericalism will
have a troubled time of it. This has been
clearly foreshadowed in recent speeches of
(Janibetta. and there are signs ofit in every
minor incident of public life. Last Sunday
I strolled out to the little village of
Futeux for change of air ami ideas, and for
a moment " found the full promise of
them. I'uteux was crowning a rosiere
of virtue. She was certainly a good little
girl, and deserved the white chaplet which
was put on her head with much ceremony
before the two thousand inhabitants of the
hamlet and idlers from the city, who form
ed the applauding crowd. But' even here
they talked politics, and the polities of
anti-clericalism". It was in fact a free
thought festival. There was no priest,
but in lieu of hifn M. Kdxnoud About, the
most voracious priest-eater of the press, as
orator ofthe day. He chaffed the clergy
I thought not with the best taste ; in fact,
with the worst on an occasion of this kiud
and glorified Voltaire. This is going
on,, in one way or the other, all over repub
lican France. The leaders have had a
mot Uorlre : the cassock is to be thrown
to the lions, and the noble animals are be
ing taught by skilfully-devised provoca
tions to groan with rage at the sight of
black cloth. On the very first day of the
sitting of the Chamber the Minister of
Public Instruction laid on the table a sta
tistical report on the religious 'congrega
tions 111 r rancc. It was moved lor by Repub-
licans.and is regarded by them as a number
ing of the enemy's forces. "It divides the
religious body into authorized and non-authorized
those specially recognized by the
law and those, such as the Jesuits, merely
tolerated. .There are 23 religious associa
tions of men for education, directing 2,328
public and 7GH private schools; 528 asso
ciations of women, directing 10,591 public
and 5,527 private schools. Men and women
together, the total number of those follow
ing the religious vocation in France is
about 200,000. It will be a pitv if the
Republicans find nothing better to do with
such a force than to reduce it by persecu
tions to a sullen despair, let Gambetta
seemed to give the word for that hard
measure in his latest speeches. It is more
than ever a pity that he cannot be cleri-
calized" to the point of tolerance by some
such happy event as his union with Mme.
Arnaud. His friends have long talked of
this, but there is nothing to show- that it
has as yet been mentioned between the prin
cipnls. It would be an ideal match in
respect of the qualifications, on one side.
The ladv is a Protestant, the widow of a
Catholic, an ardent Republican, and with
al, more than triply a millionnaire. Her
Protestantism came to her by birth, her
tolerance for the old faith through her first
marriage with M. Arnaud, who professed
it, together with out-and-out liberal prin
ciples, in the .Jtormy days of 1849. She
chose him because he was a Republican
and loved him in spite of his being a Cath
olic. Her fortuiie was inherited through
her mother from one M. Dubochet, a Croesus
of Switzerland. She has everything but
youth, and you have to consult the register
to discover even that loss. Otherwise vou
might-never guess that she is Gambetta's
senior bv ten vears. It is a pitv they do
not make a match of it. Her millions
would be of use to him in the prosecution
of his great schemes, but her mind, with its
treasure of knowledge -of the world, and
her heart, with its treasure of charity,
would be of infinitelv more.

Croirette aud Sarah llernhardt:
Paris Jitter in the World.
And all to see Croizette die ? Well, not
exactly ; there was this . time a further at
traction Sarah "Bernhardt was in the cast.
This woman of genius has still the pas of
all her comrades in the public regard. You
hear people at the Francais, provincials and
foreigners, good souls, trvinc: to look for
the niece. "I want a
ticket for Sarah Bernhardt." "Monsieur,
it is impossible." The attendants re very
patient 'with them. I don't know what
induced her eto play in this piece, as she
has only the second role, the first belong
ing of prescriptive right to Croizette. It
may have been her desire to join issue with
her rival, and, with the odds against her,
kill the nominally greater part. ' For the
ladies are rivals, and it could not be other
wise. Both are at the first theatre', in
France, and the first theatre in France is
a world wherein there U no room
for a divided reign. "They are ci
vil enough to one another at 5 re
hearsals and say tit," I was told the other
day, "but !" - This gives a peculiar in
terest to the very rare occasions on which
they are seen together in one piece. It is
a pretty even combat between them, in
spite of what I just now said about the
odds. If Sarah has more genius Croizette
has more leauty, and the former would
have to gain in plumpness what the latter
could very well spare to make either of
faultless proportions. Sarah is notoriously

though much is written about the quality

Sarah Bernhardt aud their mothcrs-in-law
the small wits would be bankrupt of sub

in this narrow field. When Sarah was
painted with a favorite hound at ber feet

you can read print through her frame, and
that her body is as good a magnifying me

NcriouK AeruHUtion A gal nut a Jlln
iter. The Rev. Dr. James Dixon resigned his
pastorate of the Centenary M. E. Church,
at New Albany, Ind., several days ago.
Dr. Dixon is accused of exhibiting a forged
certificate of divorce from his wife, to a
young lady parishioner, and of asking the
vouhg lady to go across to1 Ijouisville with
him and there marry him.' The young
lady, with the certificate in her possession,
promptly laid the matter before her pa
rente, and the parents before the church.
The minister denies any knowledge of the
alleged certificate, claims never to hare
courted the young lady, and says he re
signed his pastorate in order to connect
himself with another Christian denomina
