Our attendance was larger lust year than Ever before Many More people coining than we could of Roku Inorato. I will Boiu my regular Ira pit so court Sabbath in in the discourse below by or. Tai Mage Christ is looked at from an an usual standpoint. His text is Isaiah in a his name shall be called Tho Prophet lived in a dark Timo. For some � years the world had been getting worse. Kingdoms had risen and perished. As the Captain of a vessel in distress sees Relief coming across i he water so the whet amid the Stormy limes in which he lived put the Telescope of prophecy to his Eye and saw 750 years ahead one Jesus advancing to Tho Rescue. I want to show that when Isaiah called Christ the wonderful he spoke Vitoly. A i most houses there is a picture of Christ. Sometimes it represents him Villi face it minute sometimes with a face despotic. I have seen West s grand sketch of i to rejection of Christ. I have in n Tho face of Christ As Cut on an Emerald said to be by command of Tiberius , Anil yet 1 am con need that i shall never know How or is looked until 0 1 that Sweet Sabbath morning i shall Wash the last from my eyes in the Cool River of heaven. I take up to is Hook of divine photographs and i look at Luke s sketch at Mark s sketch at Jehu s sketch and at Paul s sketch and 1 say with a Aiah wonderful i think that you Are All interested in the Story of Christ. You feel that he is Ali. Only one who can help Yon. You have unbounded admiration for the commander who helped his passengers ashore while he himself perished but have you to admiration for him who rescued our souls himself falling Hack into Tho Waters from which he had saved us t i magnetism. Christ was wonderful in the Magnet ism of Bis person. After Tho Battle of Antietam when a general Rodo along the lines although the soldiers were lying Down exhausted it Bey Rose with great enthusiasm and Huzzard. As map Olen r turned from his Captivity his first step on the wharf Shook All the kingdoms and 250,000 men joined his Standard. It took 3.000 troops to watch him in his exile. So there have been men of wonderful Man net ism of person. But hear me while i Tell Yon of a poor Young Man who came up from to produce a thrill such As has never Breu excited by any other. Napoleon had around him the memories of an Sterlitz and Jena and Bat Lajos by Here was a Man who Laid fought no Battles who wore no eau lets who brandished no sword. To is no tilled Man of the schools for to never went to school. To had probably never seen a Princo or shaken bands with a Job Lenin. The Only extraordinary person we know of As being in his company was ins own Mother Atid she was so poor i hatin Tho most Deli cate and solemn hour thu. Ever comes to a woman s soul she was obliged to lie Down a Drivers grooming Tho beasts of i Arden. I imagine Christ one Day standing in the streets of Jerusalem. A Man descended from High lineage is standing beside him and says my father was a merchant Prince. To bad a Castle on the Brach at Galilee. Who was your father Christ answers Joseph Tho Carpenter a Iran from Athens is standing there Nur oiling his Parchment of graduation Ami says to , where did you go to school Christ answers never aha the idea of Ach an Young Man anti nip i g to command the Atten tion of a lid As Well some Little Ashing Village c Long Island Shore at to a Ign new York. Yet no sooner Doc he set his foot in the towns or cities of Jadoa than everything is in commotion. Tho people go ont of a Pic Nie faking Niy food enough for the Day. Yet arc so fascinated with Christ that at the risk of starving they Fol Low him out into the wilderness. A a Obleman Falls Down Fiat before him and says my daughter is a beggar tries to rub the dimness from Bis eyes and says lord that my eyes May be a poor sick punting woman pressing through Tho crowd says i must touch the hem of his children who Lovo their Mother better than any one else Strug Gle to pet into his anus and to kiss his Che a and to run their fingers through Iii hair and for All time putting jesu.3 so in Jove with the Little ones that there is hardly a Nursery in Christendom from which he does not take one say ing i must have them. I will fill heaven with these. For every Cedar that i Plant in heaven i will have 50 White lilies. In the hour when i was a poor Man in Judea they were not ashamed of me and now that i have come to a throne i do not despise them. Hold it not Hack of weeping Mother Lay it on my warm heart of such is the kingdom of head cd. " what is this coming Down the Road a triumphal proc Tsiou. To is seated not in a Chariot but on a ass and yet the people take off their Coats and throw them in the Way. Of what a time Jesus made among the children among the hog ats among the fishermen among the philosophers Ycu May boast of self control but if you had see him Yon would have put your arms around Bis neck and said thou Art altogether Jesus was wonderful in the Aud seeming antagonisms of his nature. You want things logical and consistent Aud you say How could Christ be god Aud Man at the same time John says Christ was the creator. All tilings were made by him Aud without him was not Matthew says that to was omnipresent. Where two or Tureo Are Mot Togo Thor in my name there am i in Tho midst of Christ declares his own eternity i am Alpha and How can he to a lion under his foot crushing King Doms and yet a Lamb Licking Tho hand that slays him at what Point do Tho throne and the Manger touch if Christ was god Why Fleo into Egypt Why j not stand his ground Why instead of bearing Tho Cross not lift up his right hand and crush his assassins Why stand and to Pat upon Why sleep on the Mountain when he owned the pal aces of eternity Why catch fish for his breakfast of Tho Beach in Tho chill morning when All the pomegranates Are Hia and All Tho vineyards his Aud All Tho cattle his and Ull the partridges his Why walk when weary and Bis feet Stone bruised who be might have taken the splendours of the Sunset for his equipage and moved with horses and chariots of fire Why beg a drink from Tho Wayside when oat of the Crystal chalices of eternity to poured the euphrates the Mississippi and Tho Ama Zon and dipping his hand in the fountains of heaven and shaking that hand Over the world from the tips of his Fin Gers dripping the great lakes and the oceans Why let thu roman regiment put him to death when he might have Ridden Down the sky followed by All Tho cavalry of heaven mounted of White horses of eternal Victory who Ctm understand you cannot understand. Who can you try to confound to. I am con founded before you speak. Paul said it was Unsearchable. To went climbing up from argument to argument and from Antithesis to Antithesis and from glory to glory and then Sank Down in exhaustion As he saw far above him other Heights of divinity unsealed and exclaimed that in All things he might have the again Christ was wonderful in his teaching. The people had been used to formalities and technicalities. Christ upset All their notions As to How preach ing ought to be done. There was this peculiarity about his people knew what to meant his illustrations were taken from the lieu Call ing her chickens together from Salt from candles from fishing tackle from a hard Ere i tor collaring a debtor. How few pulpits of this a y would have Al Lowed him entrant ? to would have Boon called undignified and familiar in his style of preaching. And yet the people went to Bear him. Those old j wish rabbis might have preached of the Sido of Olivet 50 years and never got an audience. Tho philosophers sneered at his ministrations and said this will never the lawyers caricatured but Tho common people heard him gladly. Suppose you that Thuro were any sleepy people in his audiences suppose you that Auy Wom an who Ever mixed bread was ignorant of what he meant when he compared the kingdom of heaven with leaven or yeast suppose you that Tho sunburned fishermen with the fish Scales upon their bands were listless when be spoke of Tho kingdom of heaven As a net we spend three years in College studying ancient mythology and three years in Tho theological Seminary learn ing Bow to make a Sermon and then we go out to save the world and if to cannot do it according to Claude s sermonizing or Blair a rhetoric or kames1 criticism to will let the world go to perdition. If to save nothing else we will save Claude and Blair. We see a wreck in sight. We must go out Aud save Tho Crew and passengers. We wait until we get on our Fine Cap and coat and find our Shin ing oars Aud then we push out Methodi Cally and scientifically while some Plain Shoresman in rough fishing smack and with broken oar lock goes out and gets the Crew and passengers and brings them ashore in safety. To throw Down our delicate oars Aud say what a ridiculous thing to save men in that Way you ought to have done it scientifically and a says the Shoresman if those sufferers had waited until you got out your Fine boat they would have gone to the the work of a religious teacher is to save men and though every Law of grammar should be snapped in the undertaking and there be nothing but awkwardness and blundering in the Mode All Hail to the Man who saves a soul. Christ in his preaching was Plain Earnest and wonderfully sympathetic. We can i i Ora Good Meu into heaven. We cannot drive them in with the butt cud of a catechism we waste our time in trying to catch Hies with acids in Stead of the Sweet honeycomb of the gospel. We try to make crab apples do Tho work of pomegranates. The sorrows of Jesus. Again Jesss was wonderful in his sorrows. The Sun smote him Aud the cold chilled him Tho rain pelted him thirst parched him and hunger exhausted him. Shall i compare his sorrow to the sea no fur that is sometimes bushed into a Calm. Shall i compare it with the night no for that some times gleams with Orion or kindles with Aurora. If one Thorn should he thrust through your Temple you would faint. But Here is a whole Crown made from the Rha Iunus or Spica Christi. Small Sharp stinging thorns. The mob make a Cross. They put Down the Long beam and in it they fasten a Shorter beam. Cot him at last. Those hands that have been doing kindnesses Aud wiping away the Hammer driving the Siik s through them. Those feet that have been going about on ministrations of mercy. Battered against the Cross. Then they lift it up. Look look look who will help him now come men of whose dead he brought to life be whose sick he will help him who will seize the weapons of the sol Diers none to help. Having carried such a Cross for us shall to refuse to take our Cross for him shall Jesus Bear Trio Cross Alono and All the world i of free no there s a Cross for every Ono. And there s a Cross for me. You know the process of i grafting. You Hore a Hole into a tree and put in the Branch of another tree. This tree of the Cross was hard and rough but into the Boles where Tho nails went there have Beau grafted branches of the tree of life that now Bear fruit for All nations. The original tree was bitter but the branches i grafted were Sweet and now All the nations Pluck Tho fruit and live forever. Again Christ was wonderful in his victories. First Over the forces of nature. Tho us mme a i ii Vij Iril Uii Jii ii Eoa is a Crystal sepulchre. It swallowed the Central America the president and the Spanish Armada As easily As any Fly that Ever floated on it. The Inland lakes Are fully As terrible in their Wrath. Galilee when aroused in & storm is overwhelming and yet that sea crouched in his presence and looked his feet. know All the Waves and winds. When to beckoned they came. When to frowned they fled. The Heel of his foot made no indentation of the solidified water. Medical science has wrought great changes in rheumatic limbs Aud diseased blood but when Muscles Are entirely withered no human Power can restore Beni and when a limb a once dead it is dead. But Here is a hand lifeless. Christ says to him stretch Forth thy hand Aud he stretches it Forth. In the Eye infirmary How Many Dis eases of that Delicato Organ have been cured but Jesus says to one born Blind " be open and Tho Light of heaven rushes through Gates that have never before been opened. Tho Frost or an a May kill a tree hut Jesus smites one dead with a word chemistry can do Many wonderful things but what chemist at a wedding when the refreshment gave out could change a pail of water into a cask of wine what human voice could command a school of fish yet Here is a voice that marshals the scaly tribes until in Tho place where they had let Down the net Aud pulled it up with to fish in it they let it Down again and the disciples Lay hold and begin to pull when by reason of the multitude of fish the net Brake.

To Lazarus come Forth and he came Forth. To the widow s Sou he said get up from that Bier Aud he goes Homo with his Mother. Then Jesus snatched up the keys of death Aud Hung them to. His Girdle and cried until All the graveyards of the Earth heard him of death i will be thy plague of grave i will to thy destruction Christ � coming victories. But Christ s victories have Only just begun. This world is his and he must have it. What is the matter in this country Why All these financial Trou Bles Tiara never will be permanent Prosperity in this Laud until Christ Rales it. L itis Laud was discovered for Christ and until our cities shall to evangelized Aud North South East and West shall acknowledge Christ arking and redeemer we cannot have Perma nent Prosperity. What is the matter with up ii with France with All of the nations All the congresses of the nations cannot bring quiet. When gov a Ruments not ouly theoretically but practically acknowledge the Saviour of the world there will be peace every where. In that Day the sea will have More ships than now but there will not he one the foun dries of the world Wil Jar with mightier industries hut there will be no Mold ing of bullets.

All Good and True men appreciate the indescribable evidence i of the gentle hand of fair woman that Are to to found in Mady households. Whether it be in Tho deft arrangement of a Portiero the disposition of Bric a Brac the scattering Here and there of fragrant Flowers or the go ueral air of dainties a that character izes her presence the influence of worn an is always refreshing. Then too the sex is growing Day by Day More practical. No longer Content with playing Chopin s masterpieces on the piano with paid thug chinaware or embroider ing tidies they Are getting closer to everyday matters. For instance in a certain Lucas Avenue Home the girls two vivacious Aud accomplished Belles still in their teens have made a wonderful difference in Tho appearance of the Interior. They have restored and redecorated everything and their latest achievement was the re varnishing of half a dozen occasional chairs in to parlor. Two Young beaus called Ono evening last week and were ushered into Tho parlor. Tho girls soon put in an appearance and the quartet spent a very pleasant Aud intellectual time. Now it happened that one of the callers seated himself on a newly varnished chair. The weather had been quite warm and possibly the girls had not sufficiently looked into the question of driers when they did the varnishing. To this As it May it is a certain fact that after chatting pleasantly with miss Nellie for half an hour the Young Man de siring to change his pose discovered to his horror and dismay that he could not. Fie burst into a cold perspiration and his manner became so embarrassed that miss Nellie could not help noticing it. It certainly is a Little warm re plied the youth As he parried her query. Then Wou t you sit nearer Tho win Dow you la get a Nice Breeze Here remarked miss Nellie with an impulsive solicitude that under Ordinary circumstances would have booked no de Nial but this time the poor object of so much consideration awkwardly declined to Budge. Unhappily he was at Best a diffident fellow and the thought of having to disclose what bad happened almost made him faint. At one moment while his entertainer was looking the other Way he made quite a desperate Effort to secure his Liberty but a warning sound of a rip Piug nature compelled him to Stop with. A. Suddenness that made the win Dows rattle. And so he sat on. sat on until his Friend suggested that the hour of adjournment had arrived and he still sat on when All else arose. At last to managed by dumb show to communicate to his chum the fact that some thing was wrong. The chum aided by the girls brother who arrived opportunely succeeded in getting the Sisters out of the Way and a few minutes la ter the victim chair and All was hustled out into a Carriage that had been summoned. did not hear it but there was a shriek of mirth As he drove off that was renewed when to chair was returned the next Day.
