Tul Mugo cats through to conventional ties nud spores nothing of that make Bel Uvo religion which is nil talk Aud no practice. Tim text choir a was James ii 20. Quot Faith without works is the roman Catholic Church bus been charged with putting Loo much stress a Poi Good works and not enough non Feitli. I charge protestantism with putting not enough stress upon Good works unconnected with salvation. Good works will never save a Man hut if a mini Havo not Good works Lio has no real Fuith mid no Genuino religion. There no those who depend upon the fact that they no All right inside while their conduct is wrong ont Sido. To Weir religion for Tom most part is made no of talk vigorous talk fluent talk boastful talk perpetual talk. They will entertain you Liy Tho hour in telling you How Good they Are. They come no to such a higher life that to lev have no in Ienco with Ordinary christians in the Plain discharge of thu in duty. As near As 1 Call Tell this Ocean Craft is mostly sail and very Little tonnage. For top Nast Staysail for Topmast studding sail main Topsail Pizzoti Topsail everything from flying Jib to Nii Zerti spanker. Hut linking no useful voyage. Now the world has got tiled of this and it wants a religion that will work into All Tom circumstances of life. We do not want a new religion hut the old religion applied in All pcs Siblo directions. Tun re scr. Yonder is a River with Steep and Rocky Hanks and it roars Liko a Young Niagara us it Rolls on Over its rough bed. It does nothing hut talk about itself nil the Way front its son co in Tho Mountain to Tho place where it empties into the sea. Tho Hanks no so Steep that the cannot Conin Down to drink. It Dees not my one fertilizing Rill into Tho adjoining Field. It Iyub not one Gristmill or factory on either Side. It sulks in wet weather with chilling fogs. No one caves when that River is hour among the rocks and no our cares when it Dies into Tho sea. But yonder is Aneth r River and it mosses its Hanks with the warm tides and it rocks with Floral Lull Why Tho water lilies asleep on its bosom. It invites herds of cattle and flocks of slurp and covers of Birds to Como there and drink. It has three Gristmill on Cue Sid Quot and six Cotton factories on Trio other. It is Tom wealth of 200 Miles of luxuriant farms. Tho Birds of heaven chanted when it was bom in Tom mountains Aud Tho Ocean shipping will press in from Tho sea to Hail it As it comes Down from Tho Atlantic coast. The one River is a Man who lives for himself. Tim other River is a Man who lives for others. Do Yon know How to Sito of to ancient City of Jerusalem was chosen them Wero two Brothers who Imd adjoining farms. The Oun brother had a Large family the other had no family. The brother with n Large family said a there is my brother with no family lie must to lonely and i will try to cheer him up and i will take Homo of Tho sheaves from my Field in Tho night Timo and set them Over o i his farm mud say nothing about it Quot theother brother said Quot my brother has a Largo family Aud it is very Difini cult for him to support them and i will Holp him along and i will Unkn Somoff the sheaves from my farm in Tho nighttime and set them Over on his farm and say nothing about so the work of transference went on night Niter night mid night after night but Ivery morning things seemed to to just As they were for though sheaves had been subtract cd from each farm sheaves Hud also been added and the Brothers Woro perplexed and could not understand. But one night Tho Brothers happened to meet while making this generous transference uni the spot where they met was so Sucrel that it was chosen us Tho site of the City of Jerusalem. If that Toni Litzou should prove unfounded it will nevertheless stand As a Beautiful allegory setting Forth the idea that whatever a kindly and generous and Loving act is performed that is Tho spot fir for some Temple of commemoration. I have often spoken to you about Faith hut ibis morning i speak to you about works for Quot Faith without works is i think Yon will agree with me in Tho statement that Tho great want of this world is More practical religion. To want practical religion to go into All merchandise. It will supervise Tho Label aug of goods it will not allow a Man to say that a thing was made in our factory when it was made in another. It will not allow the merchant to say that watch was manufactured in Geneva when it was manufactured in Massachusetts. It will not allow Tho merchant to say that wino came from Madeira when it Camo from California. Practical religion will walk along by the store shelves and tear off nil the tags that Mako misrepresentation. It will not allow Tho Mer Sliaut to say that is pure Coffee when dandelion Root and of Vicory and other into it. It will nor allow him to say that is pure sugar lieu there arc in it Sand and ground Glass. Practical religion. When practical religion gets its full swing in the world it will go Down Tho Street and it will come to that shoe store and rip off Tho fictitious solos of Many a fico looking pair of shoes and Bizow that it is pasteboard saudi shed Between the sound leather. And this practical religion will go right into a grocery store mud it will Puli out Tho plug of All Tho adulterated syrups Aud it will dump into the Ash barrel in front of the store the Cassia hark that is sold for Ciu Tomou and the Brick dust that is sold for Cayenne Pepper Aud it will Thaka out the prussian Blue from the Tea leaves Aud it will sift from Tho floor Pluster of Paris and Bone dust and soapstone and it will by chemical analysis separate the one quart of water from the few honest drops of cow s milk and it will throw out the live Anima Cules from the a town sugar. There has been so much adulteration of articles of food that it is an amazement to to that there is a healthy Man or woman in America. Heaven Only km., we. To it put into Tiu a spices butt into tin sugars Ana into the butter and into the a ii Rug. Cut chemical analysis Aud tile Microscope Hare made wonderful revelations. Tom Hoard of health in Massachusetts non lazed a great amount of what was culled Peru Toffee nil found in it not one particle of Coffee in eng Hind Thoro is a Law that forbids Tom putting of Alum ill Broad. The Publio authorities examined 51 packages of bread and found them ail guilty. Tho honest physician writing a prescription dons not know but that it May bring death instead of health to his patient because there Luuy be our of to drugs weakened by a cheaper article and another drug May Hoiu full Force and so Tho prescription May Havo just the opposite effect intended. Oil of Wormwood warranted pure from Boston was found to have 41 per cent of Rosin and alcohol and chloroform. Seam Mon is Ono of Tho most Unglo medical drugs. It is very rare very precious. It is the sap or the gout of u tree or u hush in Syria. The Root of the tree is exposed an incision is made into the Root Aud then shells Aro placed at this incision to Canteli Tho sap or Tho gum As it exp pcs. T is very pro pious this san Moony. But Tho peasant mixes it with a cheaper material then it is taken to Aleppo and the merchant Thoro mixes it with a cheaper material then it comes on to the wholesale druggist in London or new York and he Mixos it with a cheaper material ton it comes to Tho retail druggist Aud he mixes it with a Chenor material Aud by the time the poor sick Man gets it into his tit to it is ashes and Chalk and Sand and some of what has been called pure scum Iony after analysis Lias Heulu found to lie Lio scum Iony at nil. Speculation urn it Llalon. Now practical religion will yet rectify All this. It will go to those hypocritical professors of religion who got a Quot Corner Quot in Corn and wheat in Chicago and new York sending prices up and no until they were beyond the Roach of the poor keeping these bread stuffs in Elmir own hands or controlling Thorn until the prices going up mud up and up they were after awhile ready to sell and they sold out making themselves millionaires in Ono or two years trying to fix Tom matter up with Tho lord by building u Church or a University or a Hospital deluding themselves with the idea that the lord would be so pleased with the gift to would forget the swindle. Now As such a Man May not Havo any Liturgy in which to say his prayers i will compose for him Ono which to practically is making "0 lord Why getting a a Corner ill read staffs swindled Tho people of the United states out of $10,000,000 and made suffering All up Aud Down the land and we would Liko to Compromise this matter with Thecel thou know st it was a scaly Job but then it was smart. Now hero to Compromise it. Take 1 per cent of the profits and with that 1 per cent you can build an Asylum for these poor miserable Ragamuffin of Tho Street and i will take a yacht and go to Europe forever and Ever. a my friends if a Man hath gotten Lik collate wrongfully Aud lie build a Lino of hospitals mud universities from Here to Alaska he cannot Ntonio for it. After awhile this Man who has been getting a a Corner Quot in wheat Dies and then entail gets a a Corner Quot ill him. goes into a great Long Black Friday. There is n a break a in Trio Market. According to Wall Street parlance to wiped others out and now to is himself wiped out no collateral on which to make a spiritual loan. Eternal Deal cation. But this practical religion will not Only rectify All Mero Haudio it will also rectify All mechanism Aud All toil. A time will Cuoio when a Man will work As faithfully by Tho Job ils he does by the Day. Yon say when a thing is Slig tingly done a ooh Tomt Wasdon by the Job Quot you can Tell by the swiftness or slowness with which a Hackman drives whether to is hired by Tho hour or by the excursion. If lie is hired by the hour to drives very slowly sons to make As Tunny hours us possible. If to is hired by Tho excursion he whips up to horses sons to get a round mud get another customer. All styles of work Havo to be inspected ships inspected horses inspected Mach Ivory inspected Boss to watch the Journeyman capitalist coming Down unexpectedly to watch the Boss conductor of a City car sounding Tho punch Bell to prove his honesty us a puss Euger hands to him n clipped Nickel. All things must be watched Aud inspected. Imperfections in the Wood covered with Putty garments warranted to last until you put them on Tho third time shoddy in All kinds of clothing Chremos. Pinchbeck diamonds for $1.60, that holds on until you read Tho third chapter spa ined horses by skillful Dosu of Jocko is for several Days made to look Spry Wagon tires poorly put on horses poorly shod plastering that cracks without any provocation and Falls off. Plumbing that needs to he plumbed imperfect car wheel that halts Tho Bolu train with u hot boxy so Little practical religion in Tho mechanism of the world. I toll you my friends the Law of Man will never Reo tiny these things. It will he Tho All pervading the practical religion of Jesus Christ Llma will Ziuko the change for the hotter. It will go in Many Cli annals. Yes this practical religion will also go Itilio agriculture which is proverbially honest but needs to he rectified and it will keep the Farmer from sending to the City Markut veal that is too Young to kill and when Trio farm1 r Quot farms on shares it will keep Llie Viau who does the work from making hit half three fourths and it will be p the Furnire from building his Post and rail Fence on his neighbor s premises and it will make him shelter his cattle ill Tho Winter Sterm and it will keep the old elder from working on sunday afternoon in the new Genii a where nobody sees him. And this practical religion will hover Ever the House and Over the barn and Over the Field Aud Over to Orchard. Yes this practical religion of which i speak will come into the Learned professions. The lawyer will feel his responsibility in defending innocence and arraign ing evil Aud expounding Tho Law Aud it will keep him from charging for briefs to never wrote Aud for pleas he Dever made and for percentages he never earned and from robbing widow and orphan because they Are defenceless. Yes this practical religion will come into the physician s life and be will decl has responsibility As the 2iij this practical Titi Gnu til Como to the schoolteacher making her feel her responsibility in preparing our Yontis for usefulness and for happiness and for Honor and will keep her from giving a sly Box to a Dull head chastising him for Liat he cannot help and sending discouragement All through the after years of a lifetime. This practical religion will also Como to Tho newspaper men and it will help them in Tho gathering of Tho news and it will help them in setting Forth Tho Best society a id it will keep them from putting the sins of Tho world in larger Type than its Virtues Aud its mistakes Linn its achievements and it will keep them from misrepresenting interviews with Public men Aud from starting suspicions that never can to allayed mud will make them stanch friends of Trio oppress us instead of Tho oppressor. Yes this religion this practical religion will Cornu and put its hand on what is called Good society elevated society successful society so thut people will have to Weir expenditures within their income mid they will exc Hugo thu hypocritical a not at Home Quot for Tho honest explanation Quot too tired or Quot too Busy to sen you Quot and will keep innocent reception from becoming intoxicated conviviality. Yen there is great Opportunity for missionary work in what Are called Trio successful classes of society. In Somo of the cities it is no rare tiling now to so a fashionable woman intoxicated in Trio Street or the rail car or Trio restaurant Tho number of Fine indies who drink too much is increasing. Pc whups Yon May find her at the reception in most exalted company hut she has Nindo too May visits to the win croup and now her Eye is Glassy and after awhile her Cheek is unnaturally flushed Aud then so Falls into tits of excruciating laughter about nothing and then Sho offers Siok zoning Flat teries telling Somo homely Man How Well to looks and then Sho is helped into the Carriage and by Trio time the Carriage gets to her Homo it takes Tom husband and the Coachman to get her up the stairs. Tho report is Sho was taken suddenly ill at a German. All Mil she took too much Champ Jisuo and mixed liquors and got drank. That was All. In marriage relations. Yea this practical religion will Havo to Como in and fix up Tho marriage relation in America. There Urc members of churches who Havo too May wives and too Many husbands. Society needs to to Ospur gated Aud washed and fumigated Aud christianize. To want this practical religion not Only to take hold of what Are called the lower classes but to take hold of what Are called the higher classes. Tho trouble �9 that people have an idea they can do All to Weir religion on sunday with Hymnbook and prayer Hook and Liturgy und Somo of them sit in Church rolling up their eyes As though they Woro ready for translation when their Sabbath is bounded on All sides by an inconsistent life mud while you Aro expecting to Como out from under their arms Tho wings of an Ungil there come out from their forehead the horns of a beast. There bus got to to a new departure in religion i do not say a now religion. Of no but the old religion brought to new appliances. In our time we Bavo had the Daguerreotype Aud Tho i Bro Type Aud the photograph but it is Tho Samo old Sun and these arts Aro Only now appliances of the old sunlight. So this glorious gospel is just what to want to photograph the Imago of god on our soul and Daguerreotype it on another soul. Not a Ouw gospel but Tho old gospel put to new work. In our Timo to have had Trio telegraphic invention and Trio telephonic invention and Tom electric Light invent Lou hut they Urc All children of old electricity an Elo Lieut that the philosophers have a Long while known much about. So this electric gospel needs to dash its Light on Tom eyes Aud cars and souls of men und to become u telephonic medium to make Trio Deal hear a telegraphic medium to Dart invitation and warning to Ull nations an elect rec Light to ill Miniie the Eastern Aud Western hemispheres. Not u new gospel but Tho old gospel doing a now work. Now you say Quot that is a very Beautiful theory hut is it possible to take our s religion into All Tho avocations and businesses of life a yes and i will give you some specimens. Medical doctors who took their religion into everyday life or. John Abercrombie of Aberdeen the greatest scottish physician of his Day i Book on a diseases of Tho brain and spinal Cord Quot no More wonderful than his Book on Quot the philosophy of Tho moral feelings a Aud often a a myself Roll sat in his study fifty years ago. Grandfathers hat and within it you see Grandfather s favorite cough remedy. Whether twas asthma bronchitis or croup or baby at night waked the House with a whoop. With Ayers Cherry pectoral Crane Thor was sure that no cold or cough would Ever fail of a cure. In hats the styles change but the records will show coughs arc cured As they were 50 years ago. Ayers Cherry pectoral has no equal As a remedy for coughs colds and lung diseases. Where other soothing elixirs palliate Ayer s Cherry pectoral heals. It is not a cheap cough syrup which soothes but does not strengthen it is a physicians cough remedy and it cures. It is put up in Large bottles Only for household use. It was awarded the medal at the worlds fair of ninety three. It has a record of 50 years of cures. Consort utter of in Jullin health a profession honoured by Tuu fact that Christ Bim Solf was a physician. Aud it will Mako him pm , and when he docs not indent and a task he will say so not trying to cover up Lack of diagnosis with ponderous technicalities or Send Tho patient to a ret Kless drug store be Causo thu apothecary happens to pay a Croo Utayo of the prescriptions sent kneeling at the bed id of his patients to commend them to girl in prayer or.

Arthur Tappan. I never heard Iii Eulogy pronounced. I pronounce it now. And other merchants just us Good. William e. Dodge in the Iron business Moses h. Grid null in Trio shipping business Peter Cooper in Tho Glne business. Scores of men just is Good is they were. Farmers who take their religion into their occupation Why this Uii Nuto to Weir horses and wagons stand a round All the in cling houses in America they began this Day by a prayer to god Aud when they got Homo at noon after they have put horses up will offer a prayer to god at the Tuble seeking a Blessing and next summer there will be in to Weir held not one dishonest head of Rye not Cue dishonest car of Corn not one dishonest Apple. Worshipping god today away no among the Berkshire Hills or away Down amid Tho lagoons of Florida or away out amid the mines of Colorado or along the Banks of Tho Poto Mso and Tho Raritan sphere i knew them Betler because i went to school with them. Mech pics who took their religion into their occupations James Brindley the famous millwright Nathaniel Bow ditch Tho famous ship Chandler Elihu Burritt the famous Blacksmith and hundreds and thousands of Strong arms which have made to Hammer and Tho saw Aud the adz Aud Tho Drill and to no sound in the grand March of our National industries. Good works. Give your heart to god and then fill your life with Good works. Consecrate to him your store your shop your Hank ing House your factory and your Home. They say no one will hear it. God will hear it. That is enough. You hardly know of any one else than Wellington As connected with Tho Victory of Waterloo but he did not do the hard fighting. The hard lighting was done by the Somerset it cavalry and Tho Ryland regiments and Kempis infantry Aud the scotch Grays and Tho life guards. Who cares if Only Ali Quot Day was won in to late r part of the last Century a girl in England Bec tue a Kitchen maid in a farmhouse. She had Many styles of work and much ird work. Time rolled on and Sho married Tho Sou of n Weaver of Ilal Fux. They were industrious they saved Money enough after awhile to build them a Home.

Children grew up around them Aud they Ull became of fluent. One a member of parliament in a Publio place declared that his Success Camo from thut prayer of his Mother in the door Yard. All of them were affluent. Four thousand hands in the factories. They built dwelling houses for labourers at cheap rents and where they were in valid Aud could not pay they had the houses for nothing. Ono of these sons Camo to this country admired our Parks went Back bought land opened a great Public Park and made it a present to Tho City of Halifax England. They endowed an orphanage they endowed two almshouses. All England has heard of the generosity and the Good works of the Cross Loys. Moral House crato to god your Small Meads and your Humble surroundings and you will Havo larger Means and grander surroundings. A godliness is profitable unto All things having Promise of the life that now is and of that which is to Quot have Faith in god by All Means but remember that Faith without works is dead.
