Wasi Noton. True 7.�?in his discourse today Rev. Or. Tul Mago Poi Tod out Tho consolations which the religion of Christ extends to All who Groin trouble and specially to such As arc in deep Nils Fortuno or suffering from bereavement to Clias As his text exodus x. 13, Quot and the lord brought an East wind upon Tho land All that Day and nil i hut night a the refer once hero is not to u Cyclone but to the Long continued blowing of the wind from an in healthful Quarter. The North wind is bracing the South wind is relaxing but the East wind is irritating and full of Throat eighteen times does the Biblo speak against Tho East wind. Moses describes the thin cars blasted by the East wind. Tho psalmist describes the breaking of the ships of Tarshish by Tho East wind the locusts that plagued Egypt were Bonio i on the East wind. The Gourd that sheltered Jonah was shattered by Tho ens. Wind aug a ill Ull the 1,000 Summers autumns Winters Springs of the world s existence Tho \vnm-�4 Ilid that Ever blew is the East wind. Now. If god would Only give us a climate of tune nor West or How gig Nial Ami kind mud Placid and industrious christians we would All to but it takes almighty Grace to he what we ought to be under the Oast wind. Under the chilling Iuni wet Wing of the East wind the most of the worlds Villa inies frauds outrages suicides and murders have been hatched oat. 1 think if you should keep e. Meteorological history of Tho Days of the year and put right in Side it the criminal record of Tho country you would Lintl that those were the Best Days Public morals which were under the North or West wind Aud that those were the worst Day for Public morals which were us Dei the cast wind the Points of the Compass have More to do with the world s morals and Tho Church s piety than you have yet suspected Rev. Or. Archibald Alexander eminent for learning and for consecration when asked by one of his students it Princeton whether he always bail full us Arnuco of Faith replied Quot yes of opt when the wind blows from the East. A or. In Mieia dictator of Paraguay when the wind was from Tho East made oppressive enactments for Tho people but when the weather changed repented him of the cruelties repealed the enactments and was in Good humor with All the world Coli Tutlo change. Before 1 overtake the main thought of my subject i want to toll Christian people they ought to be observant of Eli Natieal changes. To on your guard when the wind blows from Tho East. There Aro certain styles of temptations that you a Quot endure under certain styles of weather. When the wind blows from Tho cast if you Are of a nervous temperament go not among exasperating people try not to Settle bad debts do not try to Settle old disputes do not talk with a bigot on religion do not go Penolo who Delight in Sny things do not try to collect Fusil Syfor a charitable institution do not try to answer an insulting letter. If these tilings must to done do them when Tho wind is from the North or the South or Tho West but not when the wind is from Tho East Yon say that men and women ought not to to so sensitive and nervous. 1 admit it but i am not talking Urbont what the world ought to be. I am talking about what the world is. While there Are persons whose disposition does not seem to be affected by changes in the atmosphere nine out of ten Are mightily played ism by such influence s. O Christian Man under such circumstances do not write hard things against yourself do not get worried Eliout your fluctuating experience. You Are to remember that the barometer in your Sony is Only answering the barometer of the weather. Instead of sitting Down and i dug discouraged and saying Quot i am not a Christian by Cato 1 done to fool of Hila Iuit Quot get up and look out of the window and Ere the Weatherman pointing in Tho wrong Quarter and then say Quot got the behind urn Satim lion Princo of the Power of Tho air get out of my House get cat of my heart thou Demon of darkness horsed on Tho cast wind. Away i Quot however Good Aud great Yon May to in Tao Christian life your soul will never Las inc Pondant of physical condition. I feel i no uttering a most practical useful truth Here one that May give Relief to a great Many christians who arc worried and despondent at times. Or. Rush a Monarch in Medicine after curing hundreds of eases of mental depression himself fell sick and lost his religious Hope and to would not lie Liec his pastor when the pastor told him that his spiritual depression was Only a consequence of physical depression. Andrew Fuller Thomas Scott William Cowper Thomas Boston David Braiu erd. Philipp Melanchton were mighty men for god Bat Ull of them illustrations of the fact that Umant a Sony is not Independent of his physical health. An eminent physician gave As his opinion that no Man Ever died a greatly triumphant death Whoso disease was below the diaphragm. Stackhouse the Learned Christian commentator says to does not think Saul was Insao when David played the Harp Iff Ore him but it was a hypochondria coining from inflammation of the liver. Of How Many Good people have been mistaken in regard to their religions Hope not taking these things into consideration 1 the Dean of Carlisle one of Tho Best men that Ever lived Aud one of the most useful sat Down Aud wrote a though i have endeavoured to discharge my duty As Well As 1 could yet sadncs3 and melancholy of heart stick close by Aud in Renao upon me. I Tell nobody but i am Verf much Sank indeed and i wish i could have Tho Relief of weeping As i used to. My Days Are exceedingly dark and distressing. In a word almighty god seems to hide his Fuce mud i entrust the secret Hurdly to any earthly being. I know not what will become of me. There is doubtless a Good Leal of bodily affliction mingled with this but it is not All so. I bless god however that i never lose sight of the Cross and though i should die without seeing any personal intercut in Tho merits i Hope that i shall la found at his feet i will thank Yon for a word at your Leisure. My d a r is bolted at the time i Jiuu writing ibis for 1 am full of Lii. Lost wind what was the mutter with the Dean of Carlisle h l he got to 11 a worse Man no. The physician said unit the state of his pulse would not warrant his living u minute. Of if the cast wind affects the sub flu mud affects the lungs and affects the liver it will affect your immortal soul appealing to god for help Brace yourself against these withering blasts and destroying influence lest that which Tho psalmist said broke Tho ships of Tarshish Shipwreck you. But notice in my text that the lord controls the East wind Quot the lord brought Tho East he brings it for Especial purpose it must sometimes blow from that Quarter. The a not wind is just As important As Tho North wind or the South wind or Tho West wind hut not so pleasant. Trial must come. Tho text does not say you will Iacapo the cutting blast. Whoever lid escape it especially who that accomplished any thing for Church or state Ever escaped it i won la the pulpit of John Wesley in London a pulpit where he stood Onu Day and Sam Quot i Havo Boon charged with All a he a Rimes in Tho catalogue except one that of drunkenness Quot and a woman arose in the audience and said Quot John you wore drunk last so John Waxiler passed under the flail 1 saw in a foreign journal u report of one at Gorve Whitfield a a sermons a Sermon a warned a Hundred and twee by or thirty years ago. It seemed that Trio reporter stood to take Tho Sermon Ami his chief idea was to caricature it and these Are sumo of the n port Oriel in tar i Uings of the Sermon of George Whito fled. After culling him by a nickname indicative of a physical defect in the Eye it goes on Stosuy Quot Here the preacher clasps his Chin on the pulpit Cushion. Here lie elevate his voice. Here to lower his voice. Hold his arms extended. Bawls aloud. Stands trembling. Makes a frightful face. Turns up the Whites of Lii i eyes. Clasps his hands behind naps his arms around him Aud hugs himself. Roars alow. Hallows jump erics. Changes from crying. Hal Loos and jump Well my brother if that Good Niue went through All that process in your occupation in your profession in your store in your shop at the bar ill the sickroom in Tho editorial chair somewhere you will have to go through a process. You cannot escape it. Kents wrote his famous poem and the hard criticism of the poem killed him literally killed him. Tasso wrote his poem entitled a Jerusalem Deli end Quot and 11 had such a cold reception it turned him into n raving maniac. t Una slain by his literary enemies. Tho frown of Henry Viii slew Cardinal Wolsey. Tho Duke of Wellington refused to have the Fence around his House which had been destroyed by in excited mob rebuilt because to wanted Tho Fence to remain is it was a reminder of the mutability mud uncertainty of Tho popular favor. In Toiuo of trial. And you will have trial of sumo sort. You Liao Luil it already. Why need i Prophesy i might better mention an historical Fuet ill your history. Y of Are a merchant. Liat a time you had with that old business partner Tiow hard it was to go t rid of him before you bought hint out or he ruined both of you what magnitude of then after you had paid him Down a certain sum of Money to have him go out and to Promise he would not open a store of Tho same kind of business in your Street did to not pc a Tho very same kind of business As near to you As Jio Sihle mud take All your customers us far As lie Arnnld Tako them Ami then knowing All your frailties and weaknesses after being in your business Ann for so Many years is lie not now spending i time in making a commentary on what you furnished a is a text you Are a physician and in your sickness or in your absence Yon got a neighbouring doctor to take your place in the sickroom and to ingratiate himself into the favor of that family so that you forever lose their patronage. Or you Tako a patient through thu serious stages of a fun a a and dome Day the impatient father or husband of the sick one rushes out and gets another medical practitioner who Toini s ill just in time to get Tho credit of the cure. Or you arc a lawyer and you Inge in Contact with a trickster in your profession and in your absence and contrary to agreement he moves a Nonsuit or the dismissal of Tho Case. Or the judge on Tho Bench remembering ail old political grudge roles against you every time to gets a Chance Aud says with a snarl Quot if you done to like my decision Tako an or you area Fanner and the Curculio stings the fruit or the Weevil gets into the wheat or the drought stunts the Corn or Tho Long continued Rains give Yon no Opportunity for gathering the Harvest your Best cow gets Tho hollow Horn your Best horse gets foundered. A French proverb said that trouble comes in on horseback Anil goes away on foot. So trouble dashed in on Yon suddenly but Oil How Long it was in getting away came on horseback goes away on foot. Rapid in coming slow in going. That is the history of nearly All your troubles. Again and again and again Yon have experienced the Power of Tho cast wind. It May be mowing from that direction now. My friends god d these troubles and trials for porno particular purpose. They do not come it random. Here is the Promise Quot he st yith his rough wind in the Day of the cast wind in the Tower of London the swords and the guns of other Agi s Are burnished and arranged into huge passion Flowers Ami sunflowers mud bridal cakes and you wonder How anything so hard As steel could let a put into such Floral shapes. I Livoto Tell you thut Tho hardest Shane st most cutting most piercing sorrows of this life May be made to Bloom and Blossom and put on bridal festivity. The Biblo says they shall to mitigated they shall be assuaged they shall be graduated. God is not going to allow you to be overthrown. A Christian woman very much Ilc Sponden was holding her child in her arms and the pastor trying to console the woman in her spiritual depression said Quot there you will let your child a ooh. No Quot she said Quot could no to let the child he i a Quot a a Louwill let the child drop. A a v a Quot she said 1 a if i should drop the Chi. Here it would dash his life out a Quot Well now Quot said Tho Christian minister Quot Doii to you think god is As Good As you Are wont god your father take As Good care of you his child As you take care of your child Ood wont lot you urn of trouble. I suppose god lots Tho East wind blow just hard enough to drive a into the Harbor of gods Protection. We Oil feel to can manage our own affairs. We Havo Hulm and Compass and Chart and quadrant. Give us plenty of sea room Aud to sail on and Suil on but after awhile there comes a Caribbean whirlwind up the coast and to Aro helpless in Tho Gale and to cry out for Harbor. All our calculations upset to say with Tho net Chan so and decay on All around i Sou. Of thou who Chan Cit not Aldo with Mol the South wind of mild Providence makes a throw off Tho clock of Christian character and we catch cold but Tho Sharp Cust wind of trouble makes us Tou have blessed god for Tho North wind and blessed him for Tho South wind and blessed him for the West wind can you not in the Light of this subject bless him for the East wind nearer my Ood to thou nah scr to thee. E in though it he a Cross that Rota the to still All my lung a Hull be nearer my Ood to Thoo nearer to Thoo. Does t like Connecticut. It wrap around is the warm promises. Tho Best thing that Ever happens to us is trouble. That is a hard thing perhaps to say but i repeat it for god announces it again and again Tho Best thing that happens to us is trouble. When Tho French army went Down into Egypt under Napoleon no Engineer in digging for u fortress Camo across a Tablet which Lins been called Tho Rosetta Stone. There Wero inscriptions in to Rico or four languages on that Rosetta Stone. Scholars studying ont the alphabet of hieroglyphics from that Stone were enabled to read ancient inscriptions on monuments Aud of tombstones. Woll Mony of the handwriting of god in our life Are hieroglyphics. To a Quot understand them until we Tako up the Rosetta Bono of divine inspiration and the explanation All comes out Aud Tho mysteries Ull vanish Aud what was before beyond our understanding now is Plain in its As we read Quot All things work together for Good to those who Lovo so to decipher the Hieroglyph Ica of my friends Havo you Ever calculated what trouble did for David it made him the sacred minstrel for All Ages. A Lent did trouble do for Joseph made him the keep r of Tho con cribs of Egypt. What did it do for Paul Mado him the great apostle to the gentiles. What lid it do for Samuel Rutherford made his invalid ism More illustrious than robust health. What did it do for Richard Baxter gave him capacity to write of thu Quot saints everlasting what did it do for John Bunyan showed him Tho shilling Gates of Tho City. What has it done for Yon since till a loss of that child your spirit has been purer. Since the loss of thut property you have found ont that earthly investments Are insecure. Ciuco you lost your health you feel As never before a rapt anticipation of eternal to Leoso. Trouble has humbled you has enlarged you has multiplied your resources has a a quipped you has loosened your grasp from this world and tightened your grip on the next. Of bless god for the East Windl it has driven you into the Harbor of god s sympathy. Nothing like trouble to show us thut this world is in insufficient portion. Hogart i done with life and to wanted to paint Tho end of All things. put on Canvas a shattered bottle a cracked Boll in Unstrung Harp a sign Board of u tavern called a the world s end Fulling Down u Shipwreck Tho horses of pc bus lying dead in the Clouds the Moon in hear last Quarter Ulm the world on fire. Quot our thing More a said Hogarth Quot and my picture is then he added the broken paletto of a Painter. Then he died. But trouble with hand mightier and More skillful than Hogarth a pictures Tho falling failing Mol Deruig dying world. And to want something permanent to Lay hold of and we grasp with both hands after god mud say Quot the lord is my Light the lord is my love the lord is my fortress the lord is my sacrifice the lord the lord is my bless god for your trials. Of my Christian Friend keep your spirits up by the Power of Christ s gospel. Do not surrender. Do you not know that when you give up others will give up you have courage and others will Havo courage. Tho Remans went into the Battle and by some Accident there was an inclination of the Standard the Standard upright meant Forward March Tho inclination of the Standard Lue aut surrender. Through the negligence of the Mau who carried the Standard and Tho inclination of it the army surrendered of let is keep the Stunda Dup whether it to blown Down by the cast wind or the Vorih wind or the South wind. No inclination to surrender. Forward into the conflict. The sorrowing tree. There is near Bombay u tree that they cull Tho a sorrowing tree a the peculiarity of which is it never puts Forth any Bloom in the daytime but in the night puts ont All its Bloom and All its re Dolence. And i Havo to Tell you that though Christian character puts Forth its sweetest blossoms in the darkness of sickness Tho darkness of financial distress the darkness of bereavement the darkness of death a sweeping May endure for a night but Joy Corneth in the across Tho harsh discords of this world Rolls the Musio of the skies music that Breaks from the lips music that Breaks from Tho harps Ulm rustles from the Palms music like falling Wator Over rocks Musio like wondering winds among leaves music like caroling Birds among forests Musio like Ocean Billows storming the Atlantic Bench. Quot they shall hunger no More neither thirst any More neither shall the Sun Light of them nor any heat for the Lamb which is in the midst of the throne shall Lead them to living fountains of water and god shall wipe away All tears from their i see a great Christian Fleet approaching that Harbor. Some of the ships come in with sails rent and bulwarks knocked away but still afloat nearer and nearer the shining Shore. Nearer and nearer eternal Anchorage. Haul away my lads haul away some of the ships had mighty to Duane and others were scallops easily listed of the wind and wave. Some were men of War Aud armed of Tho thunders of Christian Battle and others were a pretending tugs taking others through the Narrows Anil some were coasters that never ventured out into the deep seas of Christian experience but they Are All coming nearer Tho wharf Brigantine Galleon line of Battle ship longboat Pinnace War frigate and As they come into the Harbor i find that they Are driven by the Long loud terrific blast of the cast wind. It is through much tribulation that you Are to enter into the kingdom of god. Independent order of meets amp my in North America. The objects and Aims. Information of interest to Temperance workers and those seeking a Refuge from the temptations of Strong drink. Nun Allied his father tears agn for cleaning his Nalls in Church a strange tale of a Many a resentment for an injury done his father More than three quarters of a Century Ugo was brought to Light on n recent Sudny by Tho visit to Liis City of Daniel Bort or a wealthy merchant of Sim Jose Cal True to a vow registered Many years Ngoho refused to stay longer than 24 hours in a Zento that had Mot cd out to his father unjust and to Triblo punishment for a trivial offence Tho Mere thoughtless infraction in fact of a Blue Law oven at that time almost in Des etude. Although pressed to remain by his Host n Well known West end Man his determination not to pass two nights in Tho old Nutmeg Stato could not be shaken Aud he left for new York sunday afternoon. In the year is 15 or. Porters father whose name was also Daniel was a Young Man of 18 years in Tho Little town of Coventry. Sermons were tedious things in those Days and one sunday of Young Porter sat in Church he allowed his to wander. by he Drew his knife from his pocket and commenced to Cut his Finger Naila the Sharp Oya of Tho tithing Man caught the dose cration of Tho Sanctuary Aud Porter was at once placed under arrest the court in which he was tried preserved Tho usages of old colonial Days Tho present Coustie Tulious of Connecticut not having Boon adopted until is 18, and Tho Gravity of his offence was Cleir by recognized under Tho old Coda Tho court found a punishment to fit Tho crime Aud Porter was ordered to to banished from the state for life. What is More he had to go for there was no dallying with Tho Law in those Days. Porter had express d a desire to go to sea and a Constable escorted him to new London where to found a ship. To followed the sen for More Thau 20 years Bur e irly in the forties drifted to Cincinnati hero he married and had two sons. One of these is Tho our who paid the City n flying visit of Sudny Early in life he went to California and has become a wealthy mom or.

John say went to Holland As a merchant and the no to Limos whore to married a French woman. Tho persecution of protestants obliged his widow and Ebreo children toes expo to Geneva.

Lou Fullow s to Mac. In speaking of Longfellow s House in Nahant which was burned the other Day the Boston transcript says Quot the House where or. Longfellow spent his summors for 23 years from 1867 until his death in 1882, was at first rented by him of or. Thomas Wetmore of Beacon Street and purchased with his brother in Law or. T. G.

This was the Lions who re a number of years before Motley wrote the first chapters of the a dutch Republic. A a the More important object of this association is Mutual Benefit in the exercises of Temperance fortitude and 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. The order 1ms three subordinate branches Viz primary tents composed of White male persons Between the Ages of 10 and 05 years of age who believe in the existence and omnipotence of god and 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 j Unior Branch of boys from 12 to 1 1 years and juvenile tents for children of both sexes Between the Ages of 5 and 10 years. Each Branch Lias a service especially adapted. It has been found thut by working in separate branches of the organization there is More Freedom of action than when All Ages Aud sexes Are thrown together. Each Branch of the order is represented in the higher body and a fostering care is exercised Overall alike. Thus with the men and women girls and boys All United under one head the i. Of r. Is As an Irros stable army moving on to Victory. The order Lias and will continue to prove a Blessing to our country not Only in proving an Asylum for the re Oruie d drunkard but by inducing the sober and religious part of the Community to unite in securing the rising generation irom tile evils of intemperance Aud ultimately hand Down to generations yet unborn the benefits of sobriety. \ Kamo of Tom night Aud Flaco a a Moeung f 19 Accomac Saxis Friday Hall Auu Ullic Sau turd saturday a Pocono pc Accomac thursday Quot Loara Ville car Saluo saturday g.
