God in everything. But Rev. Or. Talmage emphasizes his existence in minor affairs. Tho eloquent preacher says we can never oct beyond Tho limit god Haa Laid Down for our to must lie Content. Washington Juno 21.a most up lifting truth is presented in or. Tal Mage s discourse of today. His text was Matthew a 29 Are not two spar rows sold for a Farthing and Ono of them shall not fall on Tho ground with out your you see the Bible will not be limited in the Choice of symbols. There is hardly n beast or Bird or in scat which has not been called to Illustrato some divine of s Patituce Tho ant s Industry Tho spider s skill Tho Hind s the Carlo s Speed the j Dove s gentleness and oven the spar Row s meanness and insignificance. In Oriental countries Nono but the poorest people buy the Sparrow and eat very Little meat is there on Tho hones Aud so very poor is it what there is of it the comfortable population would not think of touching it any More than Yon would think of eating a Bat or a Lamprey. Now says Jesus if god takes such Good euro of a poor Bird that is not Worth a cent will to not care for you an immortal we associate god with revolutions. To can see a divine purpose in the Dis covery of America in the invention of Tho Art of print aug in Tho exposure of Tho Gunpowder plot in the contrivance of the Needle gun in the ruin of an austrian or Napoleonic despotism hut How hard it is to Sev Iod in the minute personal affairs of our lives to think of god As making a record of the starry Host hut cannot realize the Bible truth that he knows How Many hairs Aro on our head. It seems a grand thing that food provided food for hundreds of thousands of israelite in the desert hut to cannot appreciate the truth that when a Sparrow is hungry god Stoops Down and opens its Mouth and puts Tho seed in. We Aro struck with the idea that god fills Tho universe with his presence but cannot understand How to encamp in the Crystal Palace of a Dew drop or finds room to stand Between Tho Alabaster pillars of tiie Pond Lily. We can so god in Tho Clouds. Can we Sec god in these Flowers at our feet god in All. We Aro Apt to place god on some great to try to him there to act out his stupendous projects but to forget that the life of a Crom Well an Alexander or a Washington or an archangel is not More under divine inspection than your life or mine. Poin Poy thought there must be a Mist Over the eyes of god because he so much favored Caesar. But Thero is no such Mist. To sees everything. We say god s path is in the great Waters. True enough but no More certainly than he is in the water in the Glass of the table. We say god guides the stars in their courses. Magnificent truth but no More certain truth thou Thath decides which Road or Street you shall Tako in coming to Church. Understand that god does not sit upon an indifferent or unsympathetic throne but that he sits Down be Sido you today and stands beside to today and no affair of our lives is so insignificant but that it is of importance to god. In the first place god chooses our occupation for us. I am amazed to so How Many people there Are dissatisfied with Tho work they have to do. I think three fourths wish they were in Somo other occupation and they spend a great Deal of time in regretting that they got in the wrong Trado or profession. I want to Tell you that god put into operation All the influences which led you to that particular Choice. Many of you Are not in the business that you expected to Boiu. You started for the ministry and Learned merchandise you started for the Law Aud you Aro a physician you preferred agriculture and you became a Mechanic. You thought one Way god thought another. But you ought not to sit Down and mourn Over the past. You Aro to remember that god arranged All these circumstances by which you were made what you Are. Hugh Miller says i will be a Stone Mason god says you will be a geologist. " David goes out to attend his father s sheep ged Calls him to govern a nation. Saul goes out to Hunt his father s asses and before he gets Back finds Tho Crown of regal Dominion. How much happier would we to if to were co tent with the places god gave us god saw your temperament and All the circumstances by which you were sur rounded and i Heli Evo nine tenths of you Aro in the work you Are Best fitted j for. I hear a great Racket in my watch and i find that the hands and the wheels and the Springs Are getting out of their places. I Send it Down to Tho jeweler s and say overhaul that watch and teach the wheels and the Spring Aud the hands to mind their own Busi Ness. " you know a Man having a Large estate. gathers his working hands in the morning and says to one you go and trim that Vine to another you go and Weed those Flowers to another you plow that Tough Glebe and each Cue goes to his particular work. Tho owners of Tho estate Points the Man to what he knows he can do beet and so it is with the lord. To arranged All. I remark further that god has arranged the place of our dwelling. What particular City or town Strep t or House you shall live in seems to be a Mere matter of Accident. You go out to Hunt for a House and you happen to pass up a certain Street and happen to see a sign and you select that House. Was it All happening so of no cd guided you in every step. foresaw the future. knew All your circumstances and he selected just that one House As better for you than any of the 10,000 habitations in the City. Our House however Humble the roof and however lowly the portals is As near god s heart As an Alhambra or a Kremlin. Prove it you say. Proverbs Iii 33, he bless eth the habitation of the just i remark further that god arranges All our friendships. You were driven to the Wall. You found a Man just at that crisis who sympathized with you and helped you. Yon say How Lucky i was there was no Luck about it. God sent that Friend just As certainly As he sent the Angel to strengthen Christ your Domestic friends your business friends your Christian friends god sent Thorn to bless you and if any of them have proved traitorous it is Only to bring out the value of those who re main. If some die it is Only that they May stand at the outposts of heaven to Greet you at your coming. You always will have friends warm hearted friends magnanimous friends and when sickness comes to your dwell ing there will be watchers. When Trou ble comes to your heart there will to sympathizers. When death comes there will to gentle fingers to close the eyes and fold the hands and gentle lips to Tell of a resurrection. Of to Are com passed by a bodyguard of friends every Man if he has behaved himself Well is surrounded by Turco circles of friends. Those of Tho outer Circle wishing him Well those in Tho next Circle willing to help him while close up to his heart arc a few who would die for him. God pity the wretch who has not any friends 1 i remark again that god puts Down the limit to our temporal Prosperity. Tho world of finance seems to have no god in it. You cannot Tell where a Man will land. The affluent fall the poor Riso. Tho ingenious fail Tho ignorant succeed. An onto reprise opening grandly shuts in bankruptcy Whilo out of the peat dug up from some new England Marsh the millionaire builds his Fortune. The poor Man thinks it is Chance that keeps Jam Down the Rich Man thinks it is Chance which hoists him Aud they Are both wrong. It is so hard to realize that god rules the Money Market and has a Hook in the nose of the Stock Gam Bler and that All the commercial revolutions of the world shall result in Tho very Host for god s dear children. Accept the inevitable. My Brethren do not kick against Tho divine allotments. God knows just How much Money it is Best for you to lose. You never gain unless it is Best for you to gain. You go up when it is Best for you to go up Aud go Down when it is Best for you to go Down. Prove it you say. I will. Hornaus Viii 28, All things work together for Good to them that love you go into a factory and you so 20 or 30 wheels and they Aro going in different directions. This band is rolling off this Way Aud another band another Way one Down and another up. You say what confusion in a fac tory of no All these different bands arc Only different parts of the Machin Ery. So i go into your life and see strange tilings. Here is one Providence pulling you one Way and another in another Way. But these Aro different parts of one machinery by which he will Advance your everlasting and pros Cut Well being. Now you know that a second Niort Gene and i third and fourth mortgage arc often Worth nothing. It is the first mortgage that is a Good investment. I have to Tell you that every Christian Man has a first mortgage on every trial and on every disaster Aud it must make a payment of eternal advantage to his soul. How Many Wor Ruments it would take out of your heart if you believed that fully. You buy goods and Hope the Price will go up hut you Aro in a fret and a frown for fear the Price will go Down. You do not buy the goods using your Best discretion in the mat ter and then say of lord i have done the Best i could i commit this whole transaction into thy hands that is what religion is Good for or it is Good for nothing. There Aro two things says an old proverb you ought not to fret about. First things that you can help and Sec Ond things which you cannot help. If you can help them Why do you not apply the remedy if you cannot help them you might As Well surrender first As last. My dear Brethren do not sit any longer moping about your Ledger. Do not sit looking so responding upon your Stock of unsaleable goods. Do you think that god is going to allow you a Christian Man to do business alone god is the controlling partner in every firm Aud although your debtors May abscond although a our securities May fail although your store May Buru god will out of in Infinity of results choose for you the very Host results. Do not have Auy idea that you can overstep the limit that god has Laid Down for your Prosperity. You will never get one Inch beyond it. God has decided How much Prosperity you can stand honorable and employ usefully and control righteously and at the cud of the year you will have just so Many dollars Aud cents just so much Ward Robe just so much furniture just so Many buds and mortgages and nothing More. I will give you $100 for every Penny you get beyond that. God has looked Over your life. knows what is Best for you and he is going to bless Yon in time and bless you for eternity and he will do it in the Best Way. Your Little child says papa i wish you would let to have that no you say it is a Sharp knife and you will Cut he says i must have but Yon cannot have it you reply. gets angry and red in Tho face und says he will have it but you say to shall not have it. Aro you not kind in keeping it from him so god treats his children. I say i wish heavenly father to get god says no my i say i must have god says you cannot have i get angry and say i will have god says you shall not have it Aud i do not get in is he not kind and Loving and the Best of fathers do you Tell me there is no Rule and regulation in these things Tell that to the men who believe in no god and no Bible. Tell it not to me a Man of Large business concludes to go out of his store leaving much of his investments in the business and to says to his sons Nowr i am going to leave this business in your hands. Perhaps i May come Back in a Little while and perhaps not. While i am gone you will please to look after after awhile Tho father comes Back and finds everything at Loose ends and the whole business seems to be going wrong. To says i am going to take Possession of this know i never fully surrendered henceforth consider yourselves is he not right in doing it he saves the business. The lord seems to let us go on in life guided by our own skill and we make miserable work of it. God comes Down to our shop or our store and says things arc going wrong. I come to take charge. I am master and i know what is Best and i proclaim my authority. " we Are merely subordinates. It is like a boy at school with a Long sum that he cannot do. has been work Ruz at it for hours making figures Here and rubbing a it Lig rat to Irefej and it is All mixed up Aud the teacher looking Over he boy s shoulder knows that he cannot get out of it and clean ing the slate says begin just so god does to us. Our affairs get into an inextricable Entingh Cunt and he rubs everything out Aud. Says begin again is he not Wise and Loving in so doing 1 think the trouble is that there is so Large a difference Between the divine and the human estimate As to what is enough. I have heard of people striving for that which is enough but i never heard of any one who had enough. What god Calls enough for Man Man Calls too Little. What Man Calls enough god says is too much. The difference Between a poor Man and a Rich Man is ouly the difference in Banks. The Rich Man puts his Money in the Washington Bank or the Central Bank or Tho metro Politan Bank or some other Bank of that character while Tho poor Man comes up and makes his investments in the Bank of him who runs All the quarries All the mines All the Gold All the Earth All heaven. Do you think a Man can fail when to is backed up like that you May have seen a map on which is described with red Ink the travels of the children of Israel through the desert to the promised land. You see How they took this and that direction crossed that River and went through the sea. Do you know god has made a map of your life with paths leading up to this River and across that sea but blessed to god the path always comes out at the promised land. Mark that Mark that no Accident. I remark again that All those things that seem to to but accidents in our life arc under the divine supervision. We sometimes seem to be going helpless and anchoress. You say if i had some other Trade if i had not Gono there this summer if i had lived in some other House you have no right to say that. Every tear you wept every step you have taken every Burden you have carried is under divine inspiration and that event which startled your whole household with horror god met with perfect placidity because he knew it was for your Good. It was part of a great plan projected Long ago. In Eter nity when you come to reckon up your mercies you will Point to that affliction As one of your greatest blessings. God has a strange Way with us. Joseph found his Way to the prime minis ter s chair by being pushed into a pit and to Many a Christian Down is up the wheat must be flailed the Quarry must be blasted the Diamond must be ground the Christian must be afflicted and that single event which you sup posed stood entirely alone was a connecting link Between two great chains one Chain reaching through All eternity past and the other Chain reaching through All eternity Small an event fastening two eternities to Gether. A missionary coming from India to the United states stopped at St Helena while the vessel was taking water. had his Little child with him. They walked along by an embankment and a Rock at that moment became loosened and falling instantly killed the child. Was it an Accident was it a Surprise to god had he allowed his servant after a life of consecration to come to 6uch a trial not such is my god. There Are no acc Ideus in the divine mind though they May seem so to us. God is Good Aud by every single Inci Dent of our life whether it be Adverse or otherwise before Earth and heaven god will demonstrate his mercy. I hear a Man say that idea belittles god. You bring him Down to such Little things. " of i have a More thorough appreciation of god in Little things than i have in great things the Mother does not wait until Tho child has crushed its foot or broken its Arm before she administers sympathy. The child comes in with the least Bruise and the Mother kisses it. God does not wait for some tremendous crisis in our life but comes Down to us in our most insignificant trials and throws Over us the arms of his mercy. Going up the White mountains some years ago i thought of that passage in the Bible that Speaks of god As weigh ing mountains in a balance. As i looked at those Groat mountains i thought can it be possible that god can put these great mountains in Scales it was in idea too great for me to grasp but when. I saw a Bluebell Down by Tho mule s foot on my Way up mount Washington then i understood Tho kindness and goodness of god. It is not so much of god in great things i can understand but of cd in Little things. Development. There is a Man who says that Doc Trine cannot be True because things do go so very wrong i reply it is no in consistency on the part of god but a Lack of understanding on our part. I hear that men Are making very Fine shawls in some factory. I go in on the first floor Aud see Only the raw materials and i ask Are these the shawls i have heard about no says the manufacturer. Go up to the next floor and i go up and there i begin to see Tho design. But the Man says do not Stop Here. Go up to the top floor of the factory Aud you will see the idea fully carried i do so and having come to the top see the com plete pattern of an exquisite shawl. So in our life standing Down on a Low level of Christian experience we do not understand god s dealings. tells us to go up higher and higher until we be Gin to understand the divine meaning with respect to us and we Advance until we stand at the very Gate of heaven and there Sec god s idea All wrought perfect idea of mercy of love of kindness. And we say just and True Are All my it is All right at the top. Remember there is no inconsistency on the part of god but it is Only our mental and spiritual incapacity. Some of you May be disappointed this Are Apt to be Digap whatever your perplexities and Wor Ruments know that mini s heart Devi Seth h 3 Way but the lord direct eth his ask these aged men in this Church if it is not so. It has been so in my own life. One summer i started for the Adirondacks but my plans were so changed that i landed in Liverpool. I studied Law and i got into the ministry. I resolved to go As a missionary to China and i staid in the United states. I thought i would j like to be in the East and i went to the West. All the circumstances of life All my work different from that which i continued on fourth Page Independent order of mme Smitm in North America. The objects and Aims. Information of interest to temper Ance workers and those seeking a Refuge from the temptations of Strong 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 16 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. Persons Over age May become honorary members. Female tents composed of White females 12 years of age and upwards a j Unior Branch of roys from 12 to 16 years and juvenile tents for children of both sexes Between the Ages of 5 and 16 years. Each Branch has a service especially adapted. It has been found that by working in separate branches of the organization there is More Freedom of action than when All Ages and sexes Are thrown together. Each Branch of the order is represented in the higher body and a fostering care is exercised Over All alike. Thus with the men and women girls and boys All United under one head the l 0. Of r. Is As an irresistible army mov ing on to Victory. The order has and will continue to prove a Blessing to our country not Only in proving an Asylum for the reformed drunkard but by inducing the sober and religious part of the Community to unite in securing the rising generation from the evils of intemperance and ultimately Han Down to generations yet unborn the benefits of sobriety. _ r % n Amo of night and place of tent location meet lug c j 7
