Shipping letter an ill East wind. Rev. Or. Talmage say3 that god controls it. thut it almighty Grace to to what to should lie under Tho chill East or Trou ble. Washington june 7in his Dis course today Rov. Or. Talmage pointed out Tho consolations which the religion of Christ extends to All who Are in Trou ble and specially to such As Are in deep misfortune or suffering from Bereave ment be chose us his text exodus 18, and Tho lord brought in East wind upon the land All that Day and ail hut Tho reference Here is not to a Cyclone but to the Long continued blowing of the wind from an unhealthful Quarter. The North wind is bracing the South wind is relaxing but the East wind is irritating and full of threat eighteen times does Tho Biblo spunk against Tho East wind. Moses describes the thin cars blasted by the East wind. Tho psalmist describes Tho breaking of the ships of Tarshish by Tho East whirl the locusts that plagued Egypt Ware Borno Kion the East wind. Tho Gourd that sheltered Jonah was shattered by the East wind and in All the 0,000 nimmers autumns Winters Springs of Tho world s exist once the Woroft Whid that Ever blow is the cast wind. Now if god would Only Giro us a climate of perpetual nor a cult or How genial and kind and Placid and industrious christians we would All to but it takes almighty Grace to to what we ought to be under the East wind under Tho chilling Imd wet Wing of the East wind the most of the worlds Villa inies frauds outrages suicides and murders have Boon hatched out i think if you should keep a mitc Orologio Cal history of he Days of the year and put right beside it the criminal record of the country you would Lind that those wore the Host Days for Public mor als which were under the North or West wind and that those wore the worst Days for Public morals which were us Der Tho East wind. The Points of the Compass have Moro to do with the world s morals and Tho Church s piety than you have yet suspected. Rov. Or. Archibald Alexander eminent for learn aug and for consecration when asked by i one of his students a Princeton whether j to always had full Assurance of Faith replied yes except when Tho wind blows from Tho or. Francia die Lator of Paraguay when Tho wind was from Tho East made oppressive enact ments for Tho people but when the weather changed repented him of the cruelties repealed the enactments and was in Good humor with All the world climatic changes before i overtake the main thought of my subject i want to Tell Christian people they ought to to observant of clan Apical changes. To on your guard when Tho wind blows from Tho East. There Uro certain styles of temptations that you a Muot endure under certain styles of weather. When the wind blows from the cast if you Are of a nervous temperament go not among exasperating people try not to Settle had debts do not try to Settle old disputes do not talk with a bigot in religion do not go atom Hose people who Delight in say ing mat Ping things do not try to collect funds 4or a charitable institution do not try to answer an insulting letter. If these tilings must to done do Thorn when Tho wind is from the North or the South or Tho West but not when Tho wind is from Tho cast you say that men and women ought not to to so sensitive and nervous. I admit it but i am not talking about what the world ought to be. I am talking about what the world is. While there Aro persons whose disposition does not seem to be affected by changes in the atmosphere nine out of ten Are mightily played upon by such influences. O Christian Man under such Circum stances do not write hard things against yourself do not get worried about your fluctuating experience. You arc to re member Itiat Tho barometer in Jour soul is Only answering Tho barometer of the weather. Instead of silting Down and being discouraged and saying i am not a Christian because i Don t Feol of Hilbrant get up and look out of Tho window and co Tho weather Point ing in Tho wrong Quarter Nurthen say got thee behind to satan thou Prince of the Power of Tho air get out of my House get out of my heart thou Demon of darkness horsed on Tho Enst wind. Away i however Good and great Yon May to in Tho Christian life your soul will never to inde Pondant e f physical condition. I fool i am uttering a most practical useful truth Here one that May give Relief to a great Many christians who Are worried and despondent at times. Or. Rush a Monarch in Medicine after curing hundreds of cases of mental depression himself fell sick and lost his religious Hope and to would not believe his pastor when the pastor told him that his spiritual depression was ouly a consequence of physical depression. An Drew Fuller Thomas Scott William Cowper Thomas Boston David Braiu erd Philipp Mclancthon were mighty men for god but All of them illustrations of Tho fact that Aman soul 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 Tho Learned Christian Coimo stator says he does not think Saul was insane when David played the Harp before him but it was u hypochondria coming from inf Lacuna Tiou of the liver. Of How Many Good people have been mistaken in regard to their religious Hope not taking these things into consideration Tho Dean of Carlisle one of Tho Best men that Ever lived and one of the most useful sat Down and wrote though i have endeavoured to discharge my duty As Well As i could yet sadness and melancholy of heart stick close by and increase upon me. I Tell nobody but i am very much sunk indeed and i wish i could Havo the Relief of weeping As i used to. My Days Are exceedingly dark and distressing. In a word Al mighty god seems to hide his fuck and i entrust the secret Hurdly to any earthly being. I know not what will become of me. There is doubtless a Good Deal 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 interest in the merits i Hope that i shall to found at his feet i will you for a word at your Leisure. My doer is bolted it the time i am writing his for 1 am full of Tours 1 Trio East wind. What was the mutter wit i Tho Dean of Carlisle Hod be got to to u worse Man no the physician said that Tho state of his pulse would not warrant his living u minute of if the Oast wind Aff cots Tho spleen and offcuts the lungs und affects the liver it will affect your immortal soul appealing to god for help Brace yourself against these with ering blasts and destroying influences lest that which Tho psalmist said Broko Tho ships of Tarshish Shipwreck you. But notice in my text that Tho lord controls Tho East wind the lord brought Tho Oast he brings it for Especial purpose it must sometimes blow from that Quarter. The East wind is just As important As Tho North wind or the South wind or Tho West wind but not. So pleasant. Trial must come. Tho text does not say you will Ostapo the cutting blast. Whoever did escape it especially who that accomplished us thing for Church or state Over escaped it i was in the pulpit of John Wesley in London a pulpit where he stood Onu Day and am i have Boon charged with All the re is in Tho catalogue except of drunkenness and a woman arose in the audience and said John you wore drunk last so John Welcy passed under Tho flail. I Bow in a foreign journal a report of one of George Whitefield a Sermon a Eathod a Hundred and Twenty or thirty years ago. It seemed that Tho reporter stood to Talce the Sermon and his chief idea was to caricature it and these Are Toiuo of Tho reportorial inter linings of Tho Sermon of acc rec White yield. After calling him by a nickname indicative of a physical defect in Tho Eye it goes on today hero the preach or clasps his Chin on the pulpit Cushion. Hero he Elev nos his voice. Hero he Lowers his voice. Holds his arms of tended. Bawls aloud. Stands trembling. Makes a frightful face. Turns up Tho Whites of his cos. Clasps his hands be Hind him. Clasps his arms around him and hugs himself. Roars aloud. Hallows jumps Oriya changes from crying. Hallows and jumps Well my brother if that Good Umu went through All that process in your occupation in your profession in your store in your shop at Tho bar in the sickroom in Tho editorial chair somewhere you will have to go through a Ilar process. You cannot escape it. Keats wrote his famous poem and Tho Laird criticism of Tho poem killed killed him. Tusso wrote his poem entitled Jerusalem Dolivo erod and it had such a cold reception it turned him info a raving a maniac. Struing float was slain by his literary enemies. The frown of Henry Viii slew Cardinal Wolsey. Tho Duko of Wel Lington refused to have Tho Fence around his House which had been destroyed by an excited mob rebuilt because to wanted Tho Fence to remain As it was a reminder of Tho mutability and uncertainty of Tho popular favor. Ill Tiquio of trial. And you will have trial of Somo sort. You have had it already. Why need i Prophesy i might bettor mention an historical fact i your history. You sue a merchant. What a time you had with that old business partner How hard it was to get rid of him before you bought him out or to ruined both of you Diat magnitude of Auhoy Uncil Thon 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 open Tho very same kind of business As near to you As possible and take All your customers us far As he could Tako them and then knowing All your frailties and weak Nesses after being in your business firm for so Many years is to not now spend ing his time in making a commentary of what you furnished As a text you Are a physician and in your sickness or in your absence Yon get a neighbor ing doctor to take your place in the sick room and he ingratiate himself into the favor of that family so that you forever Loso their patronage. Or you Tako n Patron through the serious stages of a for and Somo Day Tho impatient father or husband of the sick Ono rushes out and gets another medical practitioner who Ooms in just in time to get Tho credit of the cure. Or you arc a lawyer and you come in Contact with a trickster in your profession and in your a Sonco and contrary to agree Mentho moves a Nonsuit or the Dis Missal of Tho Case. Or the judge on Tho Bench remembering an old political grudge rules against you every time to gets a Chance and says with a snarl ii you Don t like my decision Tako an or you area Farmer and the Curculio stings the fruit or the wee Vil gets into Tho wheat or the drought stunts the Corn or Tho Long continued Rains give you no Opportunity for Gath ering the Harvest. Your Best cow gets Tho hollow Horn your Best horse gets foundered. A French proverb said that trouble comes in on horseback and goes away on foot. So trouble dashed in on you suddenly but of How Long it was in getting away Camo 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 you have experienced the Power of the cast Winch it May be blowing from that direction now. My friends god intended these Trou Bles and Triniti for sonic particular Pur pose. They do not come at random. Here is the Promise he stay eth his rough wind in the Day of the East in the Tower of London the swords and the guns of other Ages Are burnished and arranged into huge Pas Sion Flowers and sunflowers and bridal cakes and you wonder How anything so hard As steel could be put into such Floral shapes. I have to Tell you that the hardest sharpest most cutting most piercing sorrows of this life May be made to Bloom and Blossom and put on bridal festivity. The Bible says they shall to mitigated they shall be assuaged they Shull be graduated. God is not going to allow you to to overthrown. A Christian woman very much despondent was holding her child in her arms and the pastor trying to console the woman in her spiritual depression said there you will let your child of no she sail i could t let the child hoj id you Willet the child she said 1 if i should drop the Chil Here it would dash his life out Well now said the Christian minister Don t you think god is As Good As you Are won t god your father take As Good care of you his child As you take care of your child god won t lot you Ubych of trouble. I suppose god lots the East wind blow just hard enough to drive us into the Harbor of god s Protection. We All feel to can manage our own affairs. To have Holm and Compass and Chart and quadrant. Give us plenty of sea room and to sail on and sail on but after awhile there comes a Caribbean whirl wind up the coast and we Are helpless in the Gale and to cry out for Harbor. All our calculations upset to say with Tho poet change and decay on All round i boo. Of thou who Chan cat not Abido with Mol the South wind of mild Providence makes us throw off Tho cloak of Chris Tian character and we catch cold but Tho Sharp East wind of trouble makes us wrap around us the warm promises. The 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 Tudor Napoleon in Engi Neer in digging for a fortress Camo across a Tablet which has been called the Rosetta Stone. There Wero inscriptions in three or four languages on that Rosetta Stone. Scholars studying out the alphabet of hieroglyphics from that Stone were enabled to read ancient inscriptions on monuments and on Tomb stones. Well Many of the handwriting of god in our life Are indecipherable hieroglyphics. We cannot understand them until we Tako up the Rosetta Stone of divine inspiration und tiie explanation All comes out and Tho mysteries All vanish and what was before beyond our understanding now is Plain in its meaning As we read All things work together for Good to those who Lovo so to decipher Tho hieroglyphics. Of my friends have you Ever calculated what trouble did for David it made him the sacred minstrel for All Ages. What did trouble do for Joseph ? made him the keeper of Tho Cor cribs of Egypt. What did it do for Paul made him the great apostle to the gentiles. What did 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 Tho Saint everlasting what did it do for John Timyan showed him the shining Gates of Tho City. What has it done for you since the loss of that child your spirit has been purer. Since the loss of that prop erty you have found out that earthly investments Are insecure. Since you lost your health you fool As never be fore a rapt anticipation of eternal re lease. Trouble has humbled you has enlarged you has multiplied your re sources has equipped you has loosened your grasp from this world and tightened your grip on the next. Of bless god for the East wind it has driven you in to the Harbor of god s sympathy. Nothing like trouble to show us that this world is an insufficient portion. Hogarth was. About done with life and be wanted to paint the end of All things he put on Canvas a shattered bottle a cracked Boll an Unstrung Harp a sign Board of a tavern called the world s end falling Down a Shipwreck Tho horses of Phoebus lying dead in the Clouds Tho Moon in her last Quarter and the world on fire. One thing More " said Hogarth and my picture is done then he added the broken palette of a Painter. Then to died. But trouble with hand mightier and More skillful than Hogarth a pictures Tho fall ing failing Mol doring dying world. And to want something permanent to Lay hold of and we grasp with both hands after god and say the lord is my Light the lord is my love Tho lord is my fortress the lord is my sacrifice the lord the lord is my god bless god for your trials. Of my Christian Friend keep your spirits up by Tho 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 have Cour age. Tho romans 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 meant surren Der. Through the negligence of the Man who carried the Standard and the inclination of it Tho army surrendered. Of let us keep the Standard up whether it to blown Down by the cast wind or the North wind or the South wind. No inclination to surrender. Forward into the conflict. The sorrowing tree. There is near Bombay a tree that they Call the sorrowing tree the Peculiar Ity of which is it never puts Forth any Bloom in the daytime but in the night puts out All its Bloom and All its redo Lence. And i have to Tell you that though Christian character Pute Forth its Sweet est blossoms in the darkness of Sio Kuess Tho darkness of financial distress the darkness of bereavement the darkness of death weeping May endure for a night but Joy Corneth in the across Tho harsh discords of this world Rolls Tho Musio of the that Breaks from the lips music that Breaks from Tho harps and rustles from the Palms music like falling water Over rocks Musio like wandering winds among leaves music like caroling Birds among forests music like Ocean Billows storming the Atlantic Beach. They shall hunger no More neither thirst any More neither shall the Sun Light on 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 bul Warks 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 tonnage and others were scallops easily listed of the wind and wave. Some were men of War and armed of Tho thunders of Christian Battle and others were a pretending tugs taking others through the Nar rows and some were coasters that never ventured out into the deep seas of Christian experience but they Are All coming nearer the , Galleon line of Battle ship longboat Pinnace War As they come into the Harbor i find that they Are driven by the Long loud terrific blast of the East wind. It is through much tribulation that you Are to enter into Tho kingdom of god. _ Tou have Blossom god for the 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 Hisiu for the Cost wind nearer my god to thee a surer to thee. E Chi though it be a Cross Eliut Ramseth to still All my song shall be. Nearer my god to Theo nearer to Theo. Does t like Connecticut. It banished his father tears ago for cleaning his nails in Church. A strange tale of a Man s resentment for an injury done his father More than three quarters of a Century ago is brought to Light on a recent sunday by Tho visit to this cily of Daniel Porter a wealthy merchant of san Jose Cal. True to a vow registered Many years ago to refused to stay longer than 24 hours in a state that had moved out to his father unjust and terrible punish ment for a trivial offence the Mere thoughtless infraction in fact of a Blue Law oven at that time almost in Des etude. Although pressed to remain by his Host a Well known West end Man his determination not to pass two nights in Tho old Nutmeg state could not be shaken Aud he left for new York sunday afternoon. In the year 1815 or. Porter s 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 As Young Porter sat in Church he allowed Iii thoughts to wander. Absentmindedly to Drew his knife from his pocket and commenced to Cut his Finger nails. The Sharp Eye of Tho tithing Man caught Tho desecration of Tho Sanctuary and Porter was at once placed under arrest the court in which he wus tried pre served Tho usages of old colonial Days Tho present Constitution of Connecticut not having been adopted until 1818, und Tho Gravity of his offence was clearly recognized under Tho old code Tho court found a punishment to fit Tho crime Aud Porter was order a to be banished from the state for life. What is More he had to go for there was no dallying with the Law in those Days. Porter had expressed a desire to go to sea and a Constable escorted him to new London whore to found a ship. To followed Tho sea for More than 20 years but Early in Tho forties drifted to Cincinnati. Hero he married Aud had two sons. One of those is the Ono who paid the City a flying visit on sunday. Early in life to went to California and bus become a wealthy Man. Or. Porter said while he recognized Tho fact that his father could have re turned without molestation Many years before he died to thought that he had been Dono an irreparable injustice which never could be forgiven. Hoen pertained to said no feeling of love for or Pride in the old Stato which Hud been the Birthplace of his forbears. Or. Porter arrived in the City sunday morning and Lato i the afternoon loft for now York. To saw but Little of the City and said that he was not interested in anything that Carus from or was a part of Connecticut. Bridgeport Union m. Leon say. It is interesting to note says the London times that m. Loon say s ancestor As he told Tho Academy of moral sciences in 1891, was an englishman named John say possibly connected with the Suye and sole family or with Tho lord say condemned by Jock Cade. John say wont to Holland As a merchant and thence to Nimes whore to married a French woman. Tho persecution of protestants obliged his widow and three children to escape to Geneva Tho Small Basket containing All her possessions is still a family heirloom Ono of the sons. Jean say born in 1c 9, was a Draper at Geneva supplying forgo to the French monastics of Tho adjacent part of France. Joau s son also named Jean born at Geneva in 1739, was sent to the counting Bouse of castanet a my Schaut at Lyons married castanet s daughter and succeeded to Tho business. Reverse of Fortune made him Migrate to Paris. To had three sons and Tho eldest Joan Baptiste who had been in a Paris Bank went to England to learn the language and completo his commercial training. was then 19, Ana his brother Hor Ace Avo years his Junior accompanied him. A miss child who had been lodging for two years in Paris with their Uncle Delaroche a doctor procured them a Home in the family of a scotch school master named Bisset at Croydon not As pupils but As lodgers. Just at this time Tho window tax was introduced and Bisset unceremoniously stopped up one of the two windows which lighted say s Small bedroom. This incident suggested 30 years later a curious chapter on taxes which bring in nothing. In this dimly lighted bedroom say read Adam Smith who he always said was my master a queer roman custom. A popular institution in Rome is the Carciofo Atit feast of artichokes whole societies go to the ghetto or what was once the ghetto where there Are still a few jewish taverns where artichokes arc cooked in True jewish jews having the secret to Cook them a la Judee. Roman Cooks try to imitate them but cannot succeed perfectly. This year Tho Carciofo Lata was More than usually amusing from Tho fact that All wont to it on bicycles and Tho bicycles were ornamented with Flowers ribbons and coloured Lampa the procession was headed by music and right merry was the party when it entered the Conci tavern. The streets wore crowded to see the bicyclists pass. Rome letter in Paris messenger. Longfellow s House. In speaking of Longfellow s House in Nahunta which was burned the other Day the Boston transcript says the House where or. Longfellow spent his Summers for 25 years from 1857 until his death in 1882, was at first rented by him of or. Thomas wot Marcof Beacon Street und purchased with his brother in Law or. T. G. Appleton after the death of or. Wetmore in 1860. Until Tho death of or. Longfellow in 18s3, he was always during the season except in 18c8 and 1809, when he was abroad in the Brown cottage by Tho Willows on the Village Street with its sea views and sea breezes. This was the House where a number of years before Motley wrote the first chapters of the dutch Republic " Independent order of Mee Kabita � in North America. The objects and Aims. Information of interest to temper Ance workers and those seeking a Refuge from the temptations of Stroner drink. The More important object of this association is Mutual Benefit in the exercises of Temperance Forti tude 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 has three subordinate branches Viz primary tents composed of White male persons Between the Ages of 1 1 and 55 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.

Female tents Compo de of White females 12 years of age and upwards a Junior Branch of boys from 12 to 10 years and juvenile tents for children of both sexes Between the Ages of 5 and 10 years.

Each Branch of the order is represented in the higher body and a fostering cares exercised Overall alike. Thus with the men and women girls and boys All United under one head the i. U. Of r.
