Stokeley Hunt in The Watchman. As old as the story of sinful boys, which includes the first boy ever born on earth, is the story of mother’s pray ers for her wandering boy. Since Cain went out into the world, a stran ger in a strange land, marked as the murderer of his own younger brother, boys have wandered away from the old home in pursuit of business or pleasure or sin. But no boy ha3 ever gone from a Christian home without carrying with jhim, wherever he went, on land or sea, the prayers of a loving mother. And I as old as is the story of wandering boys | is the story of a mother’s unfailing | love and the power of a mother’s pray ers. : A young man of fine traits of charac- | ter who had always been the pride of I his mother’s heart left the old country { home to accept a position in the city, I where he could better provide for his widowed mother. He left with her blessings upon his head, and also the blessings of a sweet maiden who had promised some day to be his bride. His prospects were roseate, his aspira tions were high, and his resolution was fixed that never should his gray-haired mother shed a tear over any misdeed of his, and to so live that the pure girl that he left behind would be justly proud to become his wife. All went well for awhile, but, alas! the tempter came. His business associates were genial and apparently without a flaw. They introduced him to others like them selves. A lonely youth in a strange city, naturally fond of company, he was easily led on, step by step, without suspecting whither he was drifting. First trie social game of cards shall I say it?—yes, at the home of his Sun day-school teacher. Then came the theater and light wine at the banquet table. I saw him leave the office in the eve ning, going straight to his room to write his mother. Alas, the tempter never sleeps. He was met and warm ly greeted by some companions,. One proposed a social glass at the bar on the corner. He refused. They insist- j ed and ridiculed “Mamma’s baby boy. ” ; He was finally urged into the door, but refused to touch the glass that he knew sparkled with a reflection from the flames of torment. As he was about to yield, a vision rose before him of a gray-haired mother upon her knees and a sweetheart holding out a plead ing hand. He dashed the glass to the floor. Again his companions ridiculed, and one jocosely forced a glass to his lips. The demon of thirst began its work. See him now at the card table, be side himself with a drink and the ex citement of the game. A dispute arises, a scuffle ensues, and his hand is lifted to strike the fatal blow. But a hundred miles away his mother kneels in prayer. The murderous hand is stayed, and he runs from the scene. Again we see him gathered around the gay festive board with worldly men and fast women. Wine flows freely, and music, prostituted to an immoral purpose, thrills every fibre of his bq. ing. In the midst of the revelry a messen ger comes with a telegram. One of the women present snatches it from his hand and refuses to give it up except at the price of a kiss. He pays the price amidst the slapping of hands. Carelessly he opens the envelope and reads the message. His face blanches and he sinks into a chair. It is a mes sage from his sweetheart announcing the death of his mother. “And her last words were, ‘Where is my boy to night?’ ” The alarmed guests sit like stones. The woman whom he had kissed picks up the message and reads it. Quietly all but she withdraw. .She, like a devi 1 incarnate, tries to tempt him to drown his sorrow in drink. He dashes the proffered glass to the floor and bids her leave him alone. Saved through a mother’s prayers! But the mother prays for her daugh ter as well as for her son. A young woman as pure as the rose that blossoms in the morning, sparkling with dewdrops as it is kissed by the first ray of the sun, was lured away from home by the call of the city. Subtle temptations in a thousand forms! b-gan to assail such a shining mark. I Almost she was gone when her mother, j little suspecting the impending trage dy, bowed before God in prayer. The! wine glass dropped from her hands arid j shattered into fragments, but she was saved through a mother's prayers. A young man who had been called to serve his city was being introduced at a public gathering as one who had resisted all the temptations of the city. He arose and said, “Gentlemen, if I have escaped the sins of the day, it is because hundreds of miles away a Christian mother was praying for me. Had she not prayed for me at one cer tain definite hour, my soul would have been in hell to-night, and mother would lie broken-hearted in her grave. For at that hour the greatest temptation of my life swept down upon me in the most subtle form and without a mo ment’s warning. To have yielded would have been irretrievable ruin, and that I was about to do when I felt within my soul that mother was pray ing for her boy. I sprang to my feet and shouted, ‘Saved, thank God!’ with as deep meaning as ever a shipwrecked mariner shouted it when saved from a watery grave.” Saved, thank God, through a moth er’s prayers! Mme. Sembrich’s Farewell to America. New York Letter. In the late ’70’s of the last century, somewhere in Poland, a poor, pretty, gifted child, 10 years old, named Mar cella Kakhansky, stood at the door of a great opera house one day for five long hours, waiting to hear Patti. The star heard of this, and sent little Mar cella a kind note. She did not dream, though, that the girl to whom she was writing would replace her on the stage and enjoy world-wide fame. Yet this is what happened, for the little Marcel la became the famous Madame Sem- brich. Twenty-live years ago Sembrich was engaged by Henry Abbey for the open ing of the then new Metropolitan opera house. To-night she is to make her last appearance in opera on the stage of the Metropolitan and make her fare well to America. The programme will consist of the first act of “Don Pas- qualo, ” the second act from “The Bar ber of Seville” and the first act of “La j Traviata. ” Madame Sembrich’s retirement from the operatic stage while at the height of her fame and popularity adds but! another chapter to a career that lias ! been as extraordinary as it has been I successful. At 12 the future primal donna was earning a precarious liveli-1 hood in Galicia by playing waltzes and j varsoviennes at dances given by people more fortunate than herself. She was \ studying to become a pianist, and her I teacher was a young professor, Wil helm Stengel, whom she afterward! married. From Poland Marcella Sembrich went to Vienna to complete her education as a pianist. There she fell in with the famous teacher, Julius Epstein, who, hearing her sing,counselled her to aban don instrumental music and devote herself to the culture of her voice. She followed the advice, and at the age of 18 made her debut at the Athens opera house as Lucia in “I Puritani.” Her success thereafter was never for a moment in doubt. In 1883 she took the London public by storm, and in the fol lowing year her debut in New York proved equally successful. $ 1,000,000 FOR GOOD STOMACH. This Offer Should Be a Warning to Every Man and Woman. The newspapers and medical Journal# recently hnve had much to say relative lo a famous millionaire's offer of a million doliars t’or a rieW stomai’ll. This great multi-millionaire was tod busy to worry about the condition of his stomach. He allowed his dyspepsia to run from bad to worse, until in the end it became incurable. His misfortune serves as a warning to others. Everyone who suffers with dyspepsia for a few years will give everything he owns for a new stomach. Dyspepsia is caused by an abnormal state of] the gastric juices. There is one element missing. The absence of this destroys the function of the gas tric fluids. They lose their power to digest food. We are now able to supply the miss ing element- to restore to the gastric juices their digestive power, and to make the stomach strong and well. We know that Rcxall Dyspepsia Tab lets will positively and permanently cure disordered stomachs, indigestion and dyspepsia.
