But you Are not to despise these latter weapons. There was u regiment of stingers in the assyrian Unity and a regiment of a lingers in the egyptian army and they made terrible execution and they could i Stu Stone with is much accuracy and Force As now cuu he sent shot or Shell. The greeks in Iligir army had a lingers who would throw Louden plummets inscribed with the Zirri Tuting words a take this a so it was u mighty weapon David employed in that famous combat. A jewish rabbi says Tiitu the probability is Liat Goliath was in such contempt for David that in a paroxysm of laughter he threw his lieu Back and his helmet fell Oil and David Sun the uncovered forehead and ins Opportunity had conic and taking this Sling and swinging it around his head two or three times and aiming it at that uncovered forehead crashed it in like an eggshell. The Battle Over behold the tableau King Suttle sitting Little David standing his fingers clutched into Tho Louir of decapitated Goliath. As haul secs David standing then holding in his hand the thu holy reeking staring trophy evidence of the Complete Victory Over gods enemies Tho King wonders what parentage was honoured by such heroism and in my text lie asks David his Pedigree a Whoso son Art thou thou Young Man Quot Titu King Sun what Yon and i Sec that this question of heredity is a mighty question.

Great families regal or literary inapt have the characteristics All Down through Tho generations and what is More perceptible in such families May lie seen of a smaller scale in �11 Tuni Lica a Tho Suud years have no Power to obliterate the difference. The Large lip of the House of Austria is seen in All the generations Aud is called the a Lusburg lip. The House of Stuart always Means in All generations cruelty and bigotry und sensuality.

Was Mouton july 211.�?this s Mou by Rev. Or. The luge on heredity will bring All the family records into requisition and Lead pc Plit to study their own proclivity toward Good or evil. The text chosen was i Samuel xvii 08 a a photo son Art thou thou Young Mau a those who Nguvu come of us Usu Zmij never was there u More unequal fight which it would not he courteous to a Quot a a speak in their presence. The practical and useful object of this Sermon is to show you thut if Yon Hutu come of a Christian unc Stry then you Are sol i Nemly hound to preserve and develop the Gnu pious inheritance or if you have come of a depraved ancestry then it is t your duty to Brace yourself against the evil tendency by All prayer and Chris Tiu determination and you ure to time out the family frailties and in aiming the Castle put the strongest guard it Tho weakest Gate. With these smooth stones from the Brook i Hope to strike you not where David struck Goliath in Tho head hut where Nathan struck David in Titu heart Quot whose Sou Art thou thou Young Man a there is something la Ull Winter holidays to bring up the old folks. I think Many of our thoughts at Scult times Are set to the tune of Quot Auld Lang tie old folks were a a Busy it such times in making us Happy and perhaps on less resource made their sous and Dau gliders happier Thuu you on larger resources ure Able to make your sous mud daughters. The Snow Lay two Felt to above their Graves hut they Shook off the while Blanket mud mingled in Tho i Olidy festivities tile same wrinkles the same stoop of shoulder under Tho weight of Uge the saute old style of dress or cout the same smile the same tones of voice. I Hope you remember them before they went away. If not i Hope there Are those who Hove recited to you what Ulicy were and that to Taro Muy be in your House some article of dress or furniture with which you usso of Etc their memories. I want to arouse the most stored memories of your heart we Ile i make Tho impassioned interrogatory in regard to your Pedigree a whose Sou Urt thou thou Young Man a a curl Nolau ancestry. First i accost All those who Uro descended of a Christian ancestry. I do not ask if your parents were perfect. There ure no perfect people now and i do not suppose thru were Uny perfect people then. Perhaps there was sometimes too much blood in their Eye when they chastised you. But. From what i know of you you got no More Thuu you deserved and perhaps a Little Moro chastisement would have been salutary. But you Are willing to acknowledge i think thut they wanted to do right. From what you overheard in Cou versa Titus mud tic in what you saw it the family altar Aud it neighbourhood obsequies you know thut they had invited god into their blurt and their life. There was something thut sustained those old people supernaturally. You have no doubt about their destiny. Yon expect if you Ever get to heaven to meet them As you expect to meet Tho lord Jesus Christ. Eliut Early association Lias been a Churm for you. There was u time when you got right up from a House of iniquity and walked out into tie fresh air because you thought your Mother was looking at you. You have never been very Lippy in sin because of u Sweet old face that would present itself. Tremulous voices from tie past accosted you until they were seemingly audible and you looked around to see who spoke. There was an estate not mentioned in roman a look Means Couque Ai. Xuy there was us estate not my Miqueu in jewish facility for accumulation you the ast Way and test uncut a vast is May Trace dear Back to Abraham of a. J r.v.,.,r,i and tragedy runs of in the family of Tho Kemble. Literature rims of in the Lino of the Trollop a. Philanthropy runs of in the lines of the Wilbo Forcee. Stutes in ship runs of in the line of Tho Adames. You see these peculiarities in nil generations. Henry und Catherine of Navarro religious All their families religious Tito celebrated family of Cusini All mathematicians. Tito celebrated family of the Medici Grandfa-1 tier Sou and Catherine All remarkable for keen intellect. The celebrated family of Gas tutus Adolphus All with lors. This Law of heredity asserts itself without refer no to social or political condition for you sometimes find Tho ignoble in High place and the honorable in obscure place. A descendant of Edward i a toll gatherer. A Desce Dunt of Edward in a doorkeeper a descendant of the Duko of Northumberland a trunk maker. Somo of the mightiest families of England arc extinct while Somo of those most honoured in the peerage go Back to a ancestry of hard Knuckles Aud rough exterior. This Law of heredity is entirely Independent of social or political conditions. Then you find Avarico end jealousy und sensuality and fraud having full swing in some families. The violent temper of Frederick William is tie inheritance of Frederick the great. It is not u theory founded by worldly philosophy but by divine authority. Do you not remember How Tho Bible Speaks of a chosen generation of the generation of Tho righteous of the generation of vipers of an untoward generation of a stubborn generation of the iniquity of the fathers visited upon the children unto the third and fourth generation so thut the text comes today with the Force of u projectile hurled from mightiest catapult a whose son Art thou thou Young Mau a nature s two Force. Quot Well a says some one a that theory discharges me from All responsibility. Born of sanctified parents we arc bound to in , and we cannot help ourselves. Born of unrighteous parentage we Are bound to be evil Aud we Puu jilt help two inaccuracies As much As if you should say1 a the Centna Reily Pron Rietti. Tate of prayer Aud holy example and Christian entreaty and glorious memory. Tie survivors of the family gathered to hear Tho will read and this was to be kept and thut was to be sold und it was Quot share and share but there was us unwritten will thut read something like this a in the name of god to tuck.

Quot share Aud share alike a Siuy they inherit eternal riches. I big Cath to them tie wish thut they May avoid my errors and copy anything Eliut May have been worthy.

Witness time witness eternity. Signed sealed and delivered in this our dying hour father und you did not get that will proved it the surrogates office but i Tuke it out today and i Reud it to you. I take it out of the alcoves of your heart. I shake the dust off it. I ask if you will accept thut inheritance or will you break the will o be of Christian ancestry you have it responsibility vast beyond All measurement. God will not let you off with just being As Good a Ordinary people when you Bud such extraordinary Odu Tuge. Ought not a Flower planted in a Hothouse be More Thrifty Thun a Flower planted outside in the st orm ought not a factory turned by Tho hons Tonto do More work than a factory turned by u thin mud shallow Mountain Stream ought not you of Greir Early Opportunity be better than those who had a Cradle a blessed a father sets his son up in by Siuss. keeps an account of All the so much for store fixtures so much for Reut so much for this so much for that and All the items aggregated Aud the father expects the Sou to give an account.

When she took my hand in hers and turned her gentle Loving eyes on me nud gazed earnestly mud Long into my face and then lifted them to heaven in thut last prayer she prayed that. I might meet her in heaven. I wonder if i Ever shall my mothers prayers of my Sweet blessed mothers prayers did Over a Lioy Hutc such a Mother us 1 had for 25 years i Hutu not heard her Pray until tonight. 1 Hutu heard All her prayers Over again. They have had in fact u terrible resurrection. Oil How she wus wont to Pray she prayed As they prayed tonight so Earnest so importunate so believing. Shall i Ever be a Christian site a As a Christian. Of How Bright mud pure and Lippy was her life she was u cheerful mud Lippy Christian. Quot there is my mothers Bible. I Havo not opened it for years. she believe i could Ever neglect her precious Bible she surely thought i would read it much and often. How often has site Reud it to me How did she cause me to Kneel by my Little be Dandur my Little in mils up in the attitude of prayer How has she Knelt by me Aud Over me and i have Felt her warm tears ruining Down upon Ziy hands and face blessed Mother did you Pray in vain for your Kiy it shall not he in vain.

Who Hus sinned against so much instruction us i have against so Many precious prayers put up to heaven for me by Cue of the most Lovely tender pious confiding trusting of mothers in her heavenly father s care and Grace a a he never doubted she believed a a lie always prayed As if she did.

A do you wonder thut the next Duy he arose in prayer meeting and said Quot my Brethren Island before you a Monument of god s amazing mercy und goodness forever blessed be his lady Hume. All i Hutc and All i am i consecrate to Jesus my suroor and my god Quot of the Pou or of ancestral prayer hear it hear it an inheritance. But i turn for a moment to those who Hud evil parentage and i want to Tell you thut the highest thrones in and the mightiest triumphs and tie brightest crowns will to for those who Hud evil parentage Bur who by Tho Grace of god conquered a conquered. A Good As useful As splendid a gentle Tuuu As i Ever knew Hud for u father u Man who died blaspheming god until the neighbors had to put their fingers in their ears to shut out the horror. One of the most consecrated and useful Chris Tum ministers of today was the Sou of a Drunken horse jockey. Tide of evil tremendous in some families it is like Niagara rapids and yet men Hutc a lung to a Reck and been rescued. There is a family in new York whose wealth has rolled up into Many millions that was founded by a Man who after lie had vast estates sent Back a paper of tacks because they were 2 cents More than to expected. Grip and grind and gouge in the fourth generation i sup. Pose it will he grip and grind mid gouge in the twentieth generation. The thirst of intoxicants Lias burned Down through continued on fourth Page Independent order of my emotes in Norte America. The objects and Aims information of interest to Temperance workers and those seeking a Refuge from the temptations of Strong drink. The More important object of thle association is Mutual Bone flt in tie exercises of Temperance fortitude Aud Justice securing to its membership sympathy and Relief in times of sickness and distress and in the event of death the decent Observance of the necessary funeral obsequies and is based upon and seeks the Extension of the principles of total abstinence from All intoxicating drinks. Tie order has three subordinate branches Viz primary tents composed of White male persons Between the Ages of 10 and 55 years of age who believe in tie existence and omnipotence of god Aud Are willing to sign our pledge of total abstinence Are eligible to membership persons Over age May become honorary members. Female tents composed of White females 12 years of age and upwards a Junior Brunch of boys from 12 to 18 years and juvenile tents for children of both sexes Between the Ages of 5 and 18 years. Euch Brunch hit a a Ervilee especially adapted. It has been found that by working in separate branches of the organization there is More Freedom of action than when All Ages and sexes Are thrown together. Each Branch of the order is represented in the higher body and a fostering care is exercised Over All alike. Thus with tie men Aud women girls and boys All United under one head the i. O. Of r. Is As an irresistible army moving of to Victory. Tie order has und will continue to prove a Blessing to our country not Only in proving an Asylum forthe reformed drunkard but by inducing the sober and religious part of tie Community to unite in securing the rising generation from the evils of intemperance and ultimately hand Down to generations yet unborn the benefits of sobriety.
