Thanks to this Century for the improved condition of most nations. Tho reason that Napoleon made such a successful sweep across Enron of at Tho beginning of Tho Century was that most of Tho thrones of Europe were occupied Oit Lior by imbeciles or profligate. But most of Tho the ours of Ett Ropo Are today occupied by Kings and aqueous competent. Franco a Ron Bolo Switzerland a Repullo and about 50 frs constitutions i am told in Europe.

I Good word fur newspaper. Tho Money Power so much denounced Aid often justly criticised has covered to Fly continent with Nuivo ratios and from libraries Ami asylums of Norcy. Tho newspaper press which it Tho beginning of the Century was an Ink Rollor by baud moved Over Ono Sheet of paper at a Tiro Lias become Tho miraculous manufacturer of four or five or six Hundred lion stud shoots for Ono daily nows in per a Issue. Within your Momory o dying Century has been Tho genesis of nearly nil the Grent institutions Vaugel i still at London tavern March 7, 1802, British Aud foreign Biln so Bioty was born. In 1810 american Biblo society was born. In 1824 american sunday school Union was bom.

The National tempera no so Cloty Tho woman a Temperance society Aud All Tho other Tempo auce movements Horn a this country. Africa hidden to other centuries by exploration in this Century has been put at the feet of Osivill Zaniou to to occupied by Commerce and christianity. Tho Chine Wall onto an impassable Barrier now is a Ca Olness Pilo of Stone and Brick. On american nation at the opening of this Century Only a slice of land along Tho Atlantis coast now Tho whole continent in Possession of our schools and churches and missionary stations. Bermans and religions intelligence which in other times if noticed Nall by the newspaper press were allowed Only n paragraph of to lire or for lines now find the my inns of Tho secular press in All the cities thrown Wido open and every week for 20 years with ont the omission of a single week. I have been permitted to preach Otic entire gospel Sermon through Tho newspaper press. I thank god for this great Opportunity glorious old font Aryl Yon shall not to entombed until we have Faco to Faco extolled Yoa. You wore rocked in a rough Cradle and Tho Yon received was for the most part inv Orr and st Maglo and hardship and poorly covered Grams of heroes and heroines of whom Tho world had not been worthy and atheism and military despotism and the wreck of Tho French revolution. Yon inherited the influences in Aaron burrs treason and another War with England and Battle of Lako Eric nud Indian savagery and Lundy s Lane and dartmoor massacre Aud dissension hitter and wild beyond measurement und african slavery which was yet to Cost a National Haemorrhage of for awful years and a million pre coins lives. Yes dear old Century you had an awful Start and Yon have done More than Well considering your parentage Aud your Early environment. It is n wonder Yon did not Tom out to to the Vagabond Century of All Lime. You had n bad Mother and a bad grandmother. Some of the preceding centuries were not lit to live big their morals were so bad their fashions were so outrageous their Iuno Ranco was so dense their inhumanity so terrific. Years of Progress. O dying Quinet Coutlis Century before you go we take this Opportunity of telling Yon that you Are Tho boat and Tho mightiest of ail Tho centuries of the Christian Era except Tho first which gave is the Christ and you rival that Century in the fact that Yon More than All the other cent Rios put Togo Lior Are giving the Christ to All the world. Our Hundred and twelve thousand dollars at Ono mooting a few Days ago contributed for the world s evangelization. Look at what Yon Havo done o thou abused and depreciated Century. All Tho Pacific Isles barred and bolted against Tho gos pol when you Begnett to re Ign now nil open and Somo of Thorn More christianize Thau America. No More As once written Over Tho Church doors in Cape Colony a dogs and Hottentots not admitted. Quot the into or. Darwin contributing $25 to the Southern missionary society. Cauniba list driven off Tho face of Tho Earth. The Gates of All nations wide open for the gospel Entrance when the Church shall give up its intellectual Dandy ism and quit fooling with higher Eri Taoism and Longa into the work As at a life saving station Tho Crew pull out with Tho Lifeboat to take Tho sailors off a ship going to pieces in the Skerries. I Bank you old and dying Century All heaven thanks Yon Aud surely All thcnntiou3of the Earth ought to thank Yon. I put before your eyes soon to to dim for thu last sleep Tho facts trem Ordons. I Esko your wrinkled old baud and Shako it a congratulation. I Balbo your fevered brow and freshen your parched lips from Tho fountains of eternal Victory. Things to to done. But my text suggests that there Are some things that this Century on get to do before to leaves us. Quot thus Saith to lord set thine hons in order for thou balt Dio and not we ought nol to let this Century go before two or three the lug Uro Sot in order. For Ono thing this Narrol Between labor and capital. The pinot oath up usury inherited it from to eighteenth Century but do not let this Sidote Entz Century be neat it to Tho twentieth. A what to want Quot says labor a to set is right is More strikes and More vigorous work with Torch and Quot what we want Quot says capital a is a tighter grip on Tho working classes and compulsion to Tak what wages in choose to pay we thong reference to both wrong is sin. Both defiant. Until Tho Day of judgment no settlement of Tho quarrel if Yon Leavo it to British russian or Amori Cun politics. Tho religion of jeans Christ ought to porno in within Tho next four years and take Tho hand of capital and employee and say Quot Yon Havo tried Over thing else and failed. Now try Tho gospel of no More oppression and no More strikes. Tho gospel of Jesus Christ will Sweo Tou this acerbic a or it will go on to Tho oud of Timo nud Tho fires that Burn Tho world no will crackle in Tho oars of wrathful Prosperity and indignant toil while their hands Are still clutching at oath others throats. Before this Century sighs its last breath 1 would that Swarthy labor and easy Opu Cuco would come no und lot Tho Carpenter of Nazareth join their hands in pc do of ovo lasting kindness and Pence. When Moil and women Are dying they Are Apt to Dildo among their children mementos and Ono is Given a watch and in other n vase and another u picture and another a Robe. Lot this Veteran Century before it Dies hand Over to the human Rico with in impressiveness Flint shall last forc Vor that old family Keepsake Tho Woldou Kop Sako which nearly 1,900 years ago was banded Down from the Black Rock of Tho Nionna of beatitudes Quot therefore All things whatsoever to would that men should do to Yon do to oven so to them for this is Tho Law and Tho saving the world. Another thing that needs to to set in order Soforo the Veteran Century quits us in a More thorough and All embryo aug plan for the world s Gardezi Matlou. To Havo been trying to save Tho world from Tho top Aud it cannot to done that Way. It hits got to be saved from the Bottom. Tito a Liuro ought to to Only a West Point to Drill soldiers for outside Battlo. What if a military Academy should keep its students from ago to age in Tho mess room mid Tiu Barracks no no they Cru wanted it Montezuma and cd Pul Tepool and South Mon Tuin Aud missionary Ridge and Tho Church is no Placo for a Christian to stay very Long. To is wanted it Tho front. is needed in Tho desperate charge of taking Tho parapets. The lust great Battlo for god a not to to fought on Tho oampu9 of a col logo or Tho Lawn of a Church. It is to be fought at missionary Ridge. Before this Century quit. Us let us establish Tho habit of giving Tho Forenoon of Tho Sabbath to the churches and the afternoon Aud the evening of Tho Sabbath to gospel work in the Halls Aud Heaters and a Roets and Fields and slums and wildernesses of sin and sorrow. Why do christians who Havo stuffed themselves with Quot the Strong meat of the word and All Gocpt a lauds on Sabbath Forenoon want to Como up to a second service and stuff themselves again these old Gorman divers it the gospel feast need to get into outdoor work with the outdoor gospel that was preached on Tho Hanks of Tho Jordan and on the fishing smacks of Lako Galileo and in the Bleak air of assyrian mountains. I am told that throughout All our american cities the second Sabbath Servito in Tho majority of churches is sparsely Yea disgracefully attended Aud is Tho distress of Tho Monse crated Ami eloquent pastors who bring their learning Aud piety before a news ghastly for their in occupancy. What is Tho providential meaning the greatest of All Oving lists since Biblo times recently suggested that Tho evening servies in All the churches be turned into Tho most popular Stylo of evangel Itlo meetings for outsiders. Surely that is an Experiment Worth making. If that does not succeed Thon it does seem to me All Tho Ohn Robos which cannot Souro Suffi Cicuto oven aug audio noes ought to shut up tic or buildings at night and go where Tho people Are and invite Thorn to borne to the gospel banquet help our a other. Let Tho Christian son is Bonnet Folly fed in Tho morbid a go Forth in Tho afternoon and evening to feed Tho Multi tides of outsiders starving for to bread of which if a Man eat to shall never again hunger. Among those Clear Down Tho gospel would make More rapid Conquest Thau among Toboso who know so much add Havo so much that god cannot teach or help them. In those lower Depths splendid Fellows in the rough fifty years ago. No theory of germs to chill affection s budding blesses when ardent lovers took their fill no microbes on their kisses. How Happy they were not to know the germ fade so years ago. Ayers Cherry pectoral is the Standard family remedy of the world for colds coughs and lung diseases. It is not a palliative and is not therefore put up in Small cheap bottles. It is put up in Large bottles for the household. They Cost More but cure More. Fads come and go but no theory or fad can overthrow the fast that the greatest cure for All colds coughs and Throat and lung diseases is Ayers Cherry pectoral. 50 years of cures. Like Tho Sho Black that n reporter saw near now York City Hull. asked a boy to Black his boots. The boy came no to Bis work Provo kingly slow and bad just begun Whon a Large boy shoved him aside and began Tho work and the reporter reproved him is boing a Bally und the boy replied a ooh that s �11 Light i am going to do i for him. Yon t of he a been sick in Tho Hospital morn la a Mouth so us boys turn in and give him a lift Quot Quot do All Tho boys help him a asked the reporter. Quot yes air. When buy Ain t got no Job themselves Aud Jim gets one i Hoy Tarn in and help in for to Ain t Strong yet Yoa Quot How much percentage does he give you a said Tho reporter. The boy replied a a i done to keep none of it i ainu to no such sunk As that All Tho boys give up what they git on his Job. I d Liko to catch any Feller sneaking on a Siek boy i would Quot Tho reporter Gnevo him a 25 i cent piece and said Quot you keep 10 cents for yourself and give Tho rest to Quot can to do it sir. It s his customer. Hero Fino big souls is that Strow All Tho lower Depths of the cities and got Thorn converted to god this would to Tho last full Century of Tho worlds sin and but Little work of Oval Eliz Tiou would be left for the next Century. Before this of usury expires let there be a combined Effort to Bare the great cities of America Aud great Britain nud of All Christendom. What an awful thing it would to for you o dying Century to bequeath to Tho coming Century As yet innocent and a scarred with a single sin or burdened with a single sorrow the blasphemy the lawlessness Tho atheism Tho profligacy and the woes of great cities still in Vaugel in cd what to ought to see o dying Century is a revival of religion that would wrap the continents in conflagrations of religious Awakening Aud that would make legislation and merchandise and All styles of worldly hns Uoss wait awhile at to Telegraph offices and the Telephone off Loos because they Are occupied with telling the Story of cities and nations born in a Day. Nearly All the centuries closed with something tremendous. Why May not this Century Coloso in the sol Vatious of America i do not know whether our theological friends who have studied the subject More than i Liao Are right or wrong when they say Christ will Como in person to set up his kingdom in this world but though to would to overwhelmed with our unworthiness i would like to so Christ descend from heaven in our of Tho Clouds of this morning and planting Bis feet on this Earth which to Camo centuries ago to Savo declare his reign of love and mercy and sol Vatious on Earth begun. And More appropriate place i say it reverentially for such Divino Landing than the capital of a continent never Cui cd by the tyrannies and superstitious of the old world wonderful . Whiat has this dying nineteenth Century to Tell us before to goes to All Lovo to Hoar septuagenarian octogenarians Conage Marians and centenarians talk. To gather atoned Tho armchair and listen till it is far on into the night and never weary of bearing Mieir experiences. But lord Lyndhurst at 88 years of ago pouring into to oars of the hons of lords in a four hours address Tho experiences of a lifetime and Apollonius at 100 years of ago recounting his travels to thrilled listeners Aud Charles Macklin at 107 years of ago absorbing Tho attention of his hearers and Ralph fart Ham of our country at 107 years telling Tho Prince of Wales Tho Story of Bunker Hill can create no such into As this dying centenarian if to will Only speak. Tell is o nineteenth Century before you go in a score of sentences Somo of the things you have heard and seen. The Veteran turns upon us and says Quot i saw Thomas Jefferson Riding in unattended from Monticollo Only a few Steps from where you stand dismount from his horse am hitch the bridle to a Post and on yonder Bill take the oath of Tho presidential office. I saw yonder Capitol no Lazy with War s incendiary so. I saw the puff of Tho first steam Enguio in America. I heard Tho thunders of Waterloo of Sevastopol and Sedan Gettysburg. I was present at nil the Coronet Yousof the Kings nud Queens and emperors and empresses now in the worlds palaces. I have seen two Billows Roll across this continent nud from Ocean to Occam a billow of revival Joy in 1807, Aud a billow of blood in 1884. I Buve seen for generations of to human race March across this world and disappear. I saw their cradles rocked and their Graves plug. I Havo heard Tho wedding Belle and Tho deat Kuells of near a Hundred years. I Liao clapped my hands for millions of Joys Aud Mug them in millions of agonies. I Sun Macready and Edwin Forrest not and Edward pay Sou Pray. I heard to first Ehimo of Longfellow s rhythms and before any our oho saw them i read the first line of a Bancroft a history Aud the first verse of Bryant s a Tham Topsis a and the first word of Victor Hugo a almost supernatural Romance. I heard Tho music of nil Tho grand marches and the Lucent of All Tho requiem hint for nigh ten decades made Tho Cathedral windows Shako. I have seen More moral Aud spiritual victories than All of my predecessors put together. Admonition and Benediction. A for All Yon who Hoar or read this valedictory i Liao kindled All Tho Domestic firesides by which Yon Over sat Aud roused All the hallows and round lays Aud merriment Yon Havo Ever heard and unrolled All the pictured Sun sets and starry banners of the Midnight heavens that Yon have Ever gazed at. Bat Ere i go take this admonition and Benediction of n dying Century the longest life like mine most close. Opportunities gone never come Back As i could prove from nigh a Hundred years of observation. The eternity that will soon take me will soon take you. Tho wicked live not our half the or Days As i have seen in 10,000 in sauces. Quot the Only influence for in oking the world Happy is an info Nency that i the nineteenth Century inherited from the first leu try of the Christian Era the Christ of All the of Turies. Be not deceived by the fact that i have lived so Long for a Century is a Large Boel that turns 100 Omalior wheels which Are the years Aud each one of those years tyros 805 smaller wheels which Are the Days and each our of the 865 Days turns 24 smaller wheels which Are the hours and each one of those 24 hours tarns 60 smaller wheels which Are the minutes and those 60 minutes Tarn still smaller continued on fourth Page Independent order of a a a a i in North America. The objects and Aims. Information of interest to Temperance workers and those seeking a Refuge from the temptations of Strong drink. Rishe More important object of this 1 association is Mutual beef limn the exercises of Temperance fortitude and Justice securing to its membership Symont Hymand 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. The order has three subordinate branches Viz primary tents composed of White mule persons Between the Ages of 10 and 55 years of age who believe in the existence and omnipotence of god and Are willing to sign on 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 j Unior Branch of boys from 12 to 10 years Aud juvenile tents for children of both sexes Between the Ages of 5 and 10 years. Each Branch has a service 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 the men and women girls and boys All United under one head the i. O. Of r.
