Quot Aud now Mon Soo not to Bright Light which is in Tho in Othor words there Aro n Hundred Mon looking for storm where there is one lung looking for Sun Bino. My object will to to pot you and myself into the Dolight Fui Hubit of making Tom Host of everything. You May Bubo Wool Ord at Tho statistics that in India in Tho year 1875, Ali pro wore Over 10,000 people slain by wild beasts Aud but in Tho year 1870 there were in India Over 20,000 people destroyed by wild animals. But Trio to is a monster in our own Laud which is your by year destroying Morot Bau Flint. It is Tho old hour of melancholy Aud with gospel weapons i prop so to Elioso it Buck to its Midnight caverns. I mean to do two sums a sum in subtraction and a bum in addition a Sustr Fotiou from your Days of Derc Tsiou and an addition to your Days of Joy. If god will help me i will compel you to see Tho Bright Light that there is in Tho Clouds and compel you to make Tho Best of everything. In Tho first place Yon ought to make Tho very Best of nil your financial misfortunes. During the panic a few years ago you All lost Money. Somo of you lost it in most unaccountable ways. For to question Quot How Many thongs nude of dollars shall i put aside this year Quot you substituted to question Quot How shall i my Butcher Aud Baker Aud Clothier and landlord Quot you had Tho sensation of rowing hard with two oars and yet All the time going Down scream. A destroying Power. Yon did not say much about it because it wus not politic to speak much of financial but your wife knew. Less variety of wardrobe More Economy at the table self denial in Art and tapestry. Compression retrenchment. Who did not feel Tho necessity of it my Friend did you Inako the Best of this Are you Nawaro of How narrow an escape you Mado suppose you had reached to Fortuso toward a bib Yon were rapidly going what then Yon would have been As proud is Lucifer. How few men have succeeded largely in a financial sons and yet their simplicity and religious consecration not one Man out of a Hundred. There Are glorious exceptions but the general Rulo is that in proportion As a Man gots Well off for this world to gets poorly off for to next. To loses his sense of dependence on god. gets a distaste for prayer meetings. With plenty of Bank stocks Aud pouty of government securities what does that Man know of to prayer Quot give me this Day my daily bread a How few men largely successful in this world Are bringing souls to Christ or showing Solf denial for others or Aro eminent for piety you can count them All upon your eight fingers and two thumbs. One of Tho old covetous souls when he was sick Aud sick unto death used to Bave a Basin brought in a Basin filled with Gold Aud his Only amusement Aud Tho ouly Relief to got for his inflamed bands was Ruu Piug them do in through Tho Gold Aud thru aug it up in the Basic. Of what infatuation and what destroying Power Money has for Many a Maul now Yon were sailing at 30 knots the hour toward these vertices of worldliness what a mercy it was that honest Deal cation i Tho same divine hand that crushed your store hons your Bank your office your insurance company listed you out of destruction. To Day you honestly suspended in business made your Fortune for eternity. A ooh a Yon say Quot i could get along very Well myself but i am so disappointed that i cannot Loave a competence for my children. Quot my brother Tho same financial misfortune that is going to save your soul will Savo your children. With to anticipation of Largo Fortune How much Industry would your children Bave without which Hubit of Industry Thero is no safety the Young Man would say Quot Well there a no need of my working. My father will soon step ont Aud then ill have just what i you cannot hide from him How much Yon Are Worth. You think you Are hiding it. To knows All about it. can Tell Yon almost to a Dollar. Perhaps Bobas been to the Donn to off co and searched the records of deeds and mortgages and be has added it All up and to has made an estimate of How Long Yon will probably stay in this world and is not As much worried about your rheumatism and shortness of breath As you Are. The ouly Fortuso Worth anything that you Cau give your child is the Fortune you put in Bis head and heart. Of All the Young men who started life with �40,000 capital How Many turned out Well i do not know half a dozen. Tho Best inheritance. The Best inheritance a Young Man can Bave is Tho feeling that he Bas to fight his own Battle and that life is a i Trugolo into which he must throw body mind Aud soul or be disgracefully worsted. Whore Are the burial places of the lieu who started life with a Fortune some of them in the Potter s Field some in the suicides grave. But few of these men reached 35 years of age. They drank they smoked they gambled. In them the beast destroyed to Man. Some of them lived Long enough to get their fortunes and went through them. To vast majority of them did not live to get their Zuberi Tahoe. From the Gin shop or House of infamy they were Bro ubut Home to their father s House. Nun in Wiuli Riim began to pick off Loath sumo reptiles from be embroidered Pillow Aud to Light Back imaginary devils. And thou they were Laid out in highly upholstered parlor the casket covered with Flowers by Iudici Locut parents Flowers suggestive of u resurrection with no Hope. As Yon sat this morning at your j breakfast table and looked into Tho faces of your children perhaps Yon said within yourself Quot poor to Liuga How i Wisla i would Start Liana in life with a competence How i have been disappointed in ail my expectations of what i would Ilu for ilium i Quot upon that scene of pathos 1 break with n Punu of congratulation but by your financial losses your own prospects for Hunt ii and Tho Prospect fur Theli Saveu of your children Aro mightily improved. You my Bubo lost a toy but you have won a Palco. A How hardly shall they but have riches enter Iutin to kingdom of god Quot Quot it is easier for a Camel to go to brooch a us Edlu s Eye Livau for u Rich Man to enter to kingdom of what docs that mean it menus that Tho grandest Blessing god Ever bestowed ii non you wits to take your Money away from you. Let me Here soy in passing do not a Ait much stress on the treasures of this world. You cannot Tuko them along with von. At any rate you cannot Tuke them More Tuliau two or Throe Miles you will have to leave them at to of Mutery. Attila had Broo coffins. So fond was to of this life that lie decreed that first be should to Bur Ioil in u cultic of Gold Cuil that then that should to enclosed in a coffin of Silvor Aud that should be enclosed in 11 coffin of Iron and then a Large amount of tro Asuro should be thrown in Over his body. Aud so to was buried Aud Tho men who buried him were slain so but no one might know whore be was buried and no Oue might there int Carforo with his tro Suros. Of Meu of Tho world who want to Lake your Money with you better have three Collius helpful thought. Again i remark von ought to Mako Tho very Best of your bereavement. Tho whole tendency is to Brood Over these separations and to give much time to Tho handling of mementos of Tho departed and to make Long visitations to to cemetery and to say Quot of i can never look tip again. My Liopo is gone my courage is goo my religion is gone my Faith in god is gone. Of the Wear and tear and exhaustion of this Tho most frequent bereavement is the loss of children. If your departed child had lived As Long is you have lived do you not suppose that he would Bavo had about to sumo amount of trouble and trial tent you have bad if you could make a Choice for your child Between 40 years of in Goya no loss vexation exasperation Aud boreal Emerts and 40 year., in boat on would you take to responsibility of choosing to former would you suit cd unav the cup of eternal Bliss and put into but child s hands Tho cup of Many bereavement instead of the Complete safety into which that child has been lifted Quot would you like to bold it Down to to risks of this mortal state would you like to keep it out of a sea in which there have been More shipwrecks than Safe voyages is it not a Comfort to you to know that that child instead of being Bas oiled and Lluu into to mire of sin is swung Clear into Tho skies Aro not those children to to congratulated that to Point of celestial Bliss which you expect to reach by a pilgrimage of 50 or flu or 70 years they reached at a flush if Tho last 10,000 children who Ltd entered heaven bad gone through Tho average of human life 011 Earth Are you suru All Toboso 10,000 children would have finally reached the Blissful terminus besides that my friends you Aru to look at this matter As 11 self Dorial of your part for their Benefit if your children want to go off in a Huy Day party if your children want to Goon a Liu Vicry and musical excursion you consent. You might prefer to have them with you but their jubilant absence satisfies you. Well your departed children Bubo in Lygon out in n May Day party mid flowery and musical entertainment amid Joys and Hilari ties of Rover. That ought to quell some of your grief the to bought of their glee. So it ought to be that you could Mako to Best o. All bereavement. Tho fact that you have so Many friends in heaven will make your own departure very cheerful. When you arc going of a voyage everything depends upon where your friends Are if they Are of to wharf that Yon leave or of Tho wharf toward which Yoa Are going to sail. In other words to More friends you have in Bacavi u tin easier it will be to get away from lids Wor d. To More friends Here to More bitter goodbye to More friends there the More glorious welcomes. Some of you have so Many i Brothers Sisters a Bildren friends in heaven that 1 do not know hardly How you Are going to crowd through. When the vessel came from of Loigu lauds and brought a Prince to our Harbor the ships were covered with Bunting and you remember Bow Tho men of War. R i broadsides a but there was no there compared with the Joy a bib a ill be demonstrated when Yon sail up .0 Broad buy of heavenly salutation. A More friends you Bavo there the easier your own transit. What is death to u Mother whose children Are in heaven Why there is no More grief in it Thuu there is in her going into Nursery Trinid the Romp Aud laughter of her household. Though All a round May be Lark Seo you not the Bright Light in the Clouds a that Light Tho irradiated faces of your glorified Kindred making Trio worst of things. So also my friends i would have you make the Best of your sicknesses. When you Seo one move off with elastic step and in full physical vigor sometimes Yon become impatient with your Lamo foot. When a Man describes an object a mile off and you cannot see it at All you become impatient of your dim Eye. When you Bear of a Well Man making a great achievement you become impatient with your depressed nervous system or your dilapidated health. I will Tell you How you can make the worst of it. Brood Over it Brood Over All these illnesses and your nerves will become Moro twitchy and your dyspepsia More aggravated and your weak cuss More Upp Alridg. But that is the Devil s work to Tell you How to make Tho worst of it. It is my work to show you a Bright Light in Tho Clouds. Which of the Bible men most attract your Atte Tiou you say Moses. Job David Jero lab Paul. Why what a strange thing it is that you have chosen those who Scro physically disordered music so i know he was nervous from the clip to gave the egyptian. Jobs Bis blood was vitiated and diseased null his skin distress fully eruptive. David to had a running sore which to Speaks of when he says Quot my Boro ran in the a igbo Aud ceased Jeremiah had enlargement of Tho spleen. Who Cau doubt it who reads lamentations Paul who Hud a lifetime sickness which the have been guessing about for Yoars not knowing exactly what the apostle Luent by Quot a Thorn in the i do not know either hut it was something Sharp something that stuck him. Gather from All this but physical disorder May to to Means of Grace to the soul. You say Yon have so Many temptations from bodily ailments and if Yon Wero ouly Well you think you could be a Good Christian. While your temptations May to different they Uro no More than those of Tho Man who bos an Appo Tito three times a Day and sleeps eight hours Ivory night. Iowa of heaven. From my observation i judge that invalids have a More rupture be View of Tho next world than Well people and will have higher renown in Benver. Tho Best View of to delectable mountains is through to lattice of the sickroom. Thero Are trains running every hour Between Pillow Aud throne Between Hospital and mansion Between Hau Dags and Moheb Between Crutch Aud Palm Branch. Of i wish some of you people who Aro compelled to cry Quot my head my head my foot my foot my Back my Back i Quot would try Somo of the lord s Medici Uel Yuu Uro going to he Well anyhow before Long. Hlavon is an old City but has never yet reported Oue Case of sickness or Ono Bill of mortality. No Ophthalmia for Tho Eye. No pneumonia for the lungs. No pleurisy for the Side. No neuralgia for Tho nerves. No rheumatism for the Muscles. Quot Tho inhabitants shall never suy i am Quot Thero Shuli be no Moro again you ought to Mako the Best of life s finality. Now you think i have a very Tough subject. You do not Soo How i am to strike n spark of Light out of the Flint of Tho Tombstone. There Are Luuy people who Bavo an idea that death is Tho submergence of everything pleasant by everything doleful. If my subject could close in to upsetting of Ull such preconceived notions it would Cluro Well. Who Cau judge Best of Tho features of u Many Tosu who Are close by him or those who Aro afar off Quot of a Yon say a those Cau judge Best of Trio features of a Man who Are close by him. A now my friends who shall judge of Tho features of death whether they Are Lovely or whether they Are repulsive you you Are too far off. If 1 want to get a judgment us to what really Tho features of death Aro i will not ask Yoo i will Usk those who Bavo been within a Mouth of death or a week of death or an Hoar of death or a minute of death. They stud so near Tho features they Cau Tell. They give unanimous testimony if Bev Are Christian people that death instead of being Demoniac is Cherobino. Of All the thousands of Christi Nus who have been carried through the Gates of the cemetery gather up their dying experiences Aud you will find they nearly All to dered of a jubilate. How often you have seen a dying mad join in the psalm being snug around Bis hed Sido Tho Middle of the verse opening to let his ransomed spirit Froe Long after the lips could not speak looking end pointing upward. Not god s Dost work. Somo of you talk As though god bad exhausted himself in building this world Aud that All the Rich curtains he our made be Hung a round this planet and All the Flowers to Ever grew to has Woven into Tho carpet of our daisies Meadows. No. This world is not the Best thing god Cau do this world is not to Best to big that god has done. One week of the year is called Blossom week called so All through the Laud Becu Uso there Aro More blossoms la that week than in any other week of Tho year. Blossom week and that is what the future world is to which the Cristain is invited Blossom week for Over. It is As fur ahead of this world As paradiso is ahead of dry Tortugas Aud yet Here to stand shivering and fearing to go out and we want to 6tay of the dry Sand Aud maid the Stormy petrels when to Are invited to arbours of Jasmine and Birds of paradiso. One season i bad two springtime. I went to new Orleans in april and i marked the difference Between going toward new Orleans and then coming Hack. As i West on Down toward new Orleans Tho verdure Tho foliage became thicker and More Beautiful when i came Hack the further i came toward Home the less the foliage and less Aud less it became until there was hardly any. Now it Ull depends upon the direction in which Yon travel. If a spirit from heaven should come toward on world be is tru Veling from Jons toward a Recomb or from radiance toward dark Dess from banging gardens toward icebergs. Aud one would not be very much surprised if a spirit of god sent Forth from heaven toward our world should he slow to come. But How strange it is that we dread going out toward that world when going is from december toward june from Tho Snow of earthly storm to the show of edenic Blossom from Tho Arctic of trouble toward the tropics of eternal Joy. Of what an ado about dying i we get so attached to the malarial Marsh in which we live that to Are afraid to go up Aud live of the Hilltop. To Are alarmed because vacation is coming. Eternal smiling by and Best programme of celestial minstrels Aud hallelujah no inducement. Let us stay Here and keep cold Aud ignorant Aud weak. Do not introduce us to Elijah and John Milton and Bou Dalone. Keep on feet on the Sharp cobblestones of Earth instead of planting them of the Bank of Amaranth in heaven. Give us this Small Island of a leprous world instead of the in densities of splendor and Delight. Keep our bands full of Nettles and on shoulder under the Burden and our neck in the Yoke and topples on our ankle add Handcuffs on our wrists. A dear lord a we seam to say Quot keep us Down Here where we Hove to suffer instead of letting us no where we might live and reign and death la True Ufa. I am amazed at myself and at Yoor self for this infatuation under Bioh we All rest. Men Yon would suppose would net Frisbee used at Havina to Stav in this world instead of getting frightened at having to go toward heaven. I congratulate anybody who Baa a right 10 Dio. By that i mean through sickness Yon cannot Avert or through Accident you cannot avoid your work consummated. Quot where did they Bury Lily Quot said one Little child to another. A Job Quot Sho replied Quot they buried her in the Quot Whall in the cold ground a Quot us no no nut in Tho cold ground hut in Tho warm ground where ugly seeds become Beautiful Quot but Quot says Ruino Ono Quot it pains me so much to Biuk that i must lose the body with which my soul bus so Long Ycu Dou Toloso it. Yon no Moro lose your body by death Thad Yon Loso Yoor watch when you Send it to have it repaired or your jewel when you Send it to have it reset or Tho faded Piotro when you scud it to have it touched up or the photograph of a Friend a Blu you have it put in a new locket. You do not Loso your body. Paul will go to Romo to get his Payson will go to Portland to get his president Edwards will go to Princeton to get his George Cookman will go to to Bottom of the a to Puutio to get his Aud we will go to the Village churchyards and the City cemeteries to get ours Aud when to have our perfect spirit rejoined to oor perfect body thou to will be Tho kind of Meu Aud women that the resurrection morning will Mako possible. So you so you have not made oat buy doleful Story Yot. What have you proved about deut what is to Secuso you have made oat you have made out just this a but death allows us to have a perfect body free of All aches United forever with a perfect soul Freo from All sin. Correct your theology. A outdoes it All moan Why it Means that moving Day is coming and that you Are going to quit cramped apartments and be Man signed forever. The horse that stands at the Gate will not be the Ono Lathoyd Aud be spattered carrying bad nows but it will be the horse that st John saw in apocalyptic vision to White hor60 on which the King comes to the banquet. The ground a round Tho Palaco will quake with the tires and hoofs of celestial equipage Aud those christians who in this world lost their friends Aud lost their property and lust their health and lost their life will find out that god was always kind and that All things worked together for their Good and that Toboso were the Wisest people on Earth who made Tho Best of everything. So you do now the Bright Light in the Clouds speaker Reeds hair what a the time when you Salt Tell which of Tho six kinds you mean. There Are few questions Moro frequently put than Quot what time is it Quot Quot can you Tell me the Truo time a a stickler for exactitude might reply Quot what kind of time do you mean do you mean solar or sidereal time apparent time or mean time local time or Standard time a there Are All these six kinds of time not to speak of others. It is Only within the last two generations within indeed the reign of our Sovereign Queen Victoria that to subject of the differences of most of these kinds of time has become of pressing importance to any hut theorists. In one of the Public gardens of Paris a Little Cannon is set up with a burning Glass attached to it in such a manner that the 6uu itself fires the Cannon As it reaches the Meridian. This of course is Tho Tiro of Paris to on apparent noon but it would to exceedingly imprudent of any traveler to brooch Paris who wished say to catch Tho 1 o clock express to set his watch by the gun for if it happened to be in february lie would tied when he reached the railway station that the station clock was faster than Tho gun by nearly a full Quarter of an hour Aud that his train had Gene while toward Tho end of october or the beginning of november he would find himself As much too soon. Until machines for accurately Meas Urig time Cru inv Eutch apparent time time that is to say Given by the Sun itself As by a saudi Al was toe ouly time about which men knew or cared but when reasonably Good clocks and watches Wero Mado it was very soon seen that at different times in Tho year there was a marked difference Between the Sundial Lime Aud that shown by to clock the reason being simply that the apparent rate of motion of the Sun across Tho sky was not always quite the same while the movement of Tho clock was of course As regular As it could he Hoar. Komi amp acc Necef of Tho commune. Very interesting is the collection of relics of Tho commune which a gentleman connected with an important financial establishment has been forming for Somo time with no Little patience and purse Vorance. Among other noteworthy articles it comprises a red Flag with the number of a battalion and a company inscribed upon it which floated close to the spot on which the ill fated hostages were massacred the Rosary and the email volume of the acts of the apostles which Ono of the priests held tightly in Bis hands when he was shot Down and a portion of the cassock worn by mgr. Darby Sta ipod with his blood while the Spado with which the grave of the archbishop of Paris was dog is also to be seen. Then there is a paper which was discovered of the Corpse of another of Tho victims Aud on which Hud been hurriedly written the words Quot i am about to die. I forgive those who Aro killing me. I am thinking of those who love me and i Hope to meet those who have loved me in there Are moreover a number of souvenirs of the siege in the shape of uniforms buttons fragments of shells Aud so Forth Aud by no Means the Loust remarkable feature of the collection is to be found in the specimens of the various articles made by the hostages while they Wero awaiting their doom in la Ron cute prison. Id the of Torso of a few years this Little museum will probably contain the largest Aud most Complete of revolutionary relics in Cor. London Telegraph. Qum told of the Day. A i admit i am troubled a said the fashion editor. A a what a the matter a asked the society editor. Quot Why i can to quite make up my mind whether it is All right in View of prevailing conditions to 6peak of five pairs of bloomers a dozen shirt waists and two dozen pairs of Golf stockings As 1 Trousseau. A a Chicago Post. It occasioned a Lovely controversy with a coloured Tony Oral . Hon. T. Reed speaker reclined in a hotel Barber chair the other afternoon looking like an Apro Ned Buddha far plunged in contemplation of the limitations of Tho infinite. The disinclination of Hon. T. Reed to be discursive was not according to the Barber s idea of things. attempted to draw the great Man out the great Man Only grunted monosyllabic replies and resumed his reverie. Then the Barber decided to switch the conversation to the subject of or. Reed s hirsute peculiarities. Quot to Baluh s Sut Only Thi Nln oat a Heap sub a said be. Quot umm Quot said or Reed.
