Washington oct. 18.this Sermon at this season after Mast Puoplo have had x Good Long breath of the country if they do not actually Livo Oliero will revive Many pleasant memories while it deals with great religious truths. Or. Tolu Mgo a text was John Xiv 1, a my father is the this last summer having Gono in different directions Over lie tween 5,000 and 0,000 Miles of Harvest Fields. I can hardly open my Biblo without i Nelling the breath of new mown Hay and seeing tiie Golden Light of the when Triold. And when i open my Biblo to take my out the scripture Leaf rustles like Trio tassels of the corp. We were nearly All of is born in Tho country. To dropped com in the Hill and wont on saturday Toth Oueill tying the grist in the Center of the sack so t Bat the contents of either ride the horse is lauded each other and drove Tho Cuttle afield our Bare feet wet with Tho Dew and Rode the horses with Tho Halter to the Brook until we fell off and hunted the mow for nests until Tho feathered occupants went cackling away. We Wero nearly All of us born in the country and All would have staid to Bro Hud not some adventurous lad Oti his vacation i into Back with better clothes and softer hands and set the whole Village on fro with ambition for City life. 8o we All understand rustic allusions. The Biblo is full of them. In Christ a Sermon of the mount you could see Tho full blown lilies and Tho Glossy Back of the Crow s Wing is it flies Over mount Olivet. David mid John Paul and Isaiah find in country life a source of frequent illustration while Christ in Tho text takes the responsibility of culling god a Farmer declaring Quot my Fatlich is the Noah was Tho first Farmer. We say nothing about Cain the Tiller of Tho soil. Adam was a Gardener of a Largo scale but to Noali was Ivou All the acres of twin Earth. Elisha was no agriculturist not cultivating n 10 acre lot for to find him blowing with 12 Yoko of oxen. In Biblo times the Laud was so plenty and the inhabitants so few that Noah was right when lie gave to Overy inhabitant a certain portion of land that land if cultivated Over after to to his own Possession just As in Nebraska the United states government on payment of $1� years ago gave Preemption right to 190 acres to any Man who would Settle there and cultivate the soil in the Fields. All classes of people were expected to cult Vuto ground except ministers of religion. It was supposed that they would have their time entirely occupied with their own profession although i am Tohl that sometimes , so deeply into worldliness Bluit they remind one of what Thomas Fraser said in regard to a Man in his Day who preached very Well but lived very ill Quot when lie is out of the pulpit it is a pity lie should Over go into it and when to is in Tho pulpit it is a pity to should Over Como out of it. A they were not Smull crops raised in those times for though Tho arts Wero rude Tho plow turned up very Rich soil and Barley and Cotton and flux and All kinds of Grain Ca Ioup at Tho Call of Tho harvesters. Pliny tells of Ono stalk of Grain that had on it Between 800 mud 400 cars. Tho Rivers and Tho Brooks through artificial channels were brought Down to the roots of Tho Corn and to this habit of turning a River wherever it was wanted Solomon refers when to says Quot Tho King s heart is in Tho hand of Tho lord mid to Trueth it us Tho Rivers of water Aro turned whith Orso Ever to Tho wild beasts wore caught and then a Hook was put into their nose mud then they were led Over Tho Field and to that god refers when lie says to wicked Sennacherib Quot i will put u Hook in thy nose and i will bring thee Back by Tho Way which thou Earnest a a and god has a Hook in every bad Man s nose whether it to Nebuchadnezzar or Alrub or Herod. May think himself very Independent but some Tiu in in Bis life or in Tho hour of Bis death to will find that Tho lord almighty has a Hook in his nose. This was thu Rulo in regard to Tho cult no of Tho ground a thou Sliaut not plow with an of and an ass together a illustrating Tho Folly of Ever putting intelligent mud useful mud pm Kublo men in association with Tho stubborn and Tho unmanageable. Tho vast majority of troubles in Tho churches and in reformatory institutions comes from Tho disregard of this command of Tho lord a a a a Lioa Sliaut not plow with no of and an ass there Wero Largo amounts of property invested in attic. Tho Moabite paid 100,000 sheep As an annual tax. Job Hud 7,000 sheep 8,000camels. 600 Yoko of oxen. The time of Vietn gowns ushered in with mirth and music. The clusters of Tho Vino Wero put into Tho wino press and then five men would got into the press and trample out Tho juice from Tho Grapo until their garments were saturated with Tho wino and had Boorne Trio emblems of Slaughter. Christ himself wounded until covered with Tho blood of crucifixion making use of this allusion when Tho question was asked Quot who Eforo Art Oliou red in Thino Appa Rol and thy garments Liko one who tre Adoth Tho wino who responded a i Havo trodden Tho wino press alone. A in nil Ages there has been Groat Honor paid to agriculture. Seven eighth of the people in every country Are disciples of to plow. A government is Strong in proportion As it is supported by an ath Lotio and industrious yeomanry. So Long ago As before the fall of Carthage Strabo wrote 28 books of agriculture. Hesiod wrote a poem on the Saino subject Quot the weeks and Days. A Cato was prouder of Bis work on husbandry than of All his military conquests. Bat i must not be tempted into a discussion of agricultural conquests. Standing amid the Hor Vosti and Orchards and vineyards of the Bible and standing amid Tho harvests and Orchards and vineyards of our own country larger harvests than Havo Ever before been gathered i want to run out Tho analogy Between the production of crops and the growth of Graco in Tho soul All these sacred writers making use of that Nua logy. The now. In Tho first Pluto i remark in Greco us in the Fields Oliero must to a plow. That Bioh theologians Call conviction is Only the Plo Shuro turning up the sins Itiat Liuvao been rooted and matted in the soul. A Farmer said to his indolent Sou a Thom Are $ 00 Briod deep in that to Sou went to work and slowed Tho Field from Fence to fou co and he slowed it very Doop and then complained that lie had not found to Money. But when the crop Hud been gathered and bold for $100 More Thau any previous year then Tho Young Man took Tho hint As to what his father meant when to said them was $100 Lauri of Down in that Field. Deep blowing for a crop. Deep blowing for u soul to who makes Light of sin will never Anion it to anything in the Church or in thu world. If a Man Speaks of sin As though it were ii inaccuracy or a mistake instead of Tho loathsome abominable consuming and dimming thing that god hates that Man will Nover yield a Harvest of usefulness. When i was a boy i slowed a fold with a team of spirited it very quickly. Onco in a while i passed Over some of to soil without turning it but i lid not Jerk Back Trio plow with its rattling devices. 1 thought it Mode no difference. After Whilo my father came along and said Quot Nhy this will never do this in t slowed deep enough there you have missed t his Anil you have missed and lie slowed it Over again. The difficulty with a great Many people is that they Cru Only scratched with conviction when Tho subsoil plow of god s truth ought to to put in up to the beam. My word is to All Sabbath schoolteachers to All parents to All Christian workers plow Doeple plow deep and if in your own personal experience you Are Apt to take a Loui ont View of the sinful Sido of your nature put Down into your soul Tho ten commandments which Reoul Tho holiness of god and that Sharp mud glittering Colter will turn up your soul to the deepest Depths. If a Man preaches to you that you Are Only a Little out of order by reason of sin and that you need Only a Little fixing up he deceives. You Havo suffered an appalling injury by reason of sin. Them arc Quick poisons and slow poisons but the druggist could give you one drop that could kill the body. And Kin is like that drug so virulent so poisonous so fatal Tomt Ono drop is enough to kill Tho soul. Deep i living. Deep blowing for a crop. Deep blowing for a soul. Brokon heart or no religion. Broken soil or no Harvest. Why was it that David and the Jui Leraud Trio publican mid Paul Tnador such ado about their sins had they lost their senses no. Tho Plo share struck them. You Vic Tiou turned up a great Many things that Wero forgo Tieu. As a Farmer blowing sometimes Turus up the Skeleton of a Man or the Anatomy of a monster Long ago buried so the Plo share of conviction turns up the ghastly skeletons of sins Long ago entombed. Geologists Nover brought up from Tho Depths of Tho Mountain mightier Inhthy saurus or Meg therium. But what Means All this crooked blowing these crooked furrows Tho repentance that amounts to nothing Tho repentance Tomt ends in nothing men groan Over their sins but get no hotter. They weep but their tears Aro not counted. They get convicted but not converted. What is Tho reason i remember that on Tho farm to set a Standard with a Rod Flag at Tho other end of Tho Field. We kept our Eyo of that. To aimed at that to slowed up to that. Losing sight of that to Mado a crooked Furrow. Keeping our Eyo on that to Mado a straight Furrow. Now in this matter of conviction to must Havo some Standard to guide us. It is a ted Standard Tomt god has set at Tho other cud of Tho Field. It is Tho Crons. Keeping your Eyo Oil that you will Nemko a straight Furrow. Losing sight of it you will make a crooked Furrow. Plow up to Tho Crosa aim not at either end of Tho horizontal piece of Tho Cross hut it Tho upright piece at Tho Center of it the heart of thu Sou of god who Boro your ficus and Mado satisfaction. Crying and weeping will not bring you through. Quot him hath god exalted to be a Princo and a Saviour to give repentance. A of plow up to Trio Cross the son lug. Again i remark in Graco a a in to Field there must to a a owing. In Tho Autu Muul weather you find Tho Farmer going a Crofts the Field it a stride of about 23 , and at every stride to puts his hand into Trio sack of Grain and to sprinkles the seed com Over thu Field. It looks silly to a Man who does not know what he is doing. To is doing a very Impo Tuut work. To is scattering Tho Winter Grain and though Trio Snow May come Tho next year Oliero will to a Groat crop. Now that is what to Aro doing when to Are preaching Trio gospel two arc scattering Tho seed. It is Tho foolishness of preaching but it is to Winter Grain. Aud though Tho snows of worldliness May Como Down upon it it will yield after awhile glorious Harvest. Let us to sure to sow Tho right kind of sued. Sow mullein stuck Aud mullein stalk will come up. Sow Canada thistles and Canada thistles will Como up. Sow wheat and wheat will come up. Let us distinguish Between truth and error. Lot us know the difference Between boat and hellebore outs and Hubana Tho largest denomination in this country is to denomination of nothing Arians. Their religion 1b a system of negations. You say to one of them. Quot what do Yon Beli ovo a Quot Well idol t believe in infant Quot what do Yon believe Quot Quot Well i Don t believe in the Perove Raucci of Tho Quot Well now Tell to what you do believe Quot Quot Well i Don t believe in the eternal punishment of Tho so their religion is n Row of ciphers. Believe something and teach it or to resume the figure of my text scatter abroad Tho right kind of seed. A minister the other Day preached a Sermon calculated to set Tho denominations of christians quarrelling. To was sowing Nett Lea a minister the other Day nov cruised that be would proach a Sermon of the superiority of transcendental Aud organized forces to unt rans Cen dental and unorganized forces. What was he bowing weeds. To lord Jesus Christ 16 Ceuta los ago planted the i Vito seed of doctrine. It sprang up. On one Sido of Tho stuck Are All Tho churches of Christendom. On the other Side of the stalk Are All the free governments of the Earth and on the top there shall be a flowering millennium after Achi if. All from to gospel Bock of doctrine. Every word that a Parent or in Bybuth school Teucher or City missionary or other Christian worker Speaks for Christ comes up. Yea it comes up wit i compound interest you saving one soul that Ono saving ton Tho ton a Hundred Tho Hundred a thousand Tho thousand ten thousand Tho ten thousand Ono Hundred thongs Audi on on forever. The harrowing. Again i remark in Grace As in the farm there must be a harrowing. I refer now not to a Harrow Eliut goes Over the Field in order to prepare the ground for the seed but a Harrow Bioh goes Over after Tho seed is sown lest Tho Birds pick up Tho seed sinking it Down into Trio Oarth so that it Cun take Root. You know u Burrow. It is made of Bays of Wood nailed across ouch other and a the underside of each bar is furnished with Sharp Teeth Aud when to horsc9 Aro hitched to it it goes tearing Aud j leaping across the Field driving Tho seed Down into Tho Earth until it Springs no in Tho Harvest bereavement sorrow pore cution Are Tho lords harrows to sink Trio gospel truth into your heart. Those were truths that you heard 80 years ago. They Havo not affected you until recently. Some Grout trouble Cumo Over you mud Tho truth was harrowed in and it iils come up. What did god mean in this country in 1857? for a Century there was the gospel preached but n great Deal of it produced to result then god harnessed a wild to a Harrow of commercial disaster and that Harrow went Down Wall Street and up will Street Down third Street mud tin third Street Down Tato Street and up state Street Down Pennsylvania Uve use mud no Pensy Lavnius Avenue until the whole land was torn to pieces us it bad never been before. What followed the Harrow a great Awakening in which there were 509,000 souls brought into lie kingdom of our lord. No Burrow no crop. Trio Ici in Ling. Again i remark in Grace us in Trio farm Oliero must to a reaping. Many christians speak of religion As though it were a matter of economics or insurance. They expect to reap ill the Boxt world. Uli Mil now is Tho time to reap. Gather up the Joy of Tho Christian religion this morning this afternoon this night if you Havu not us much Grano us you would Liko to have thank god for what you have nud Pruy for More. You Are no Iverso Suslu cd than Joseph no worse troubled than was David no worse scorn cd than wus Paul. Yet amid to rattling of Fetters and amid thu go Chou of dungeons and amid Trio horror of Shipwreck they triumphed in Trio Grace of god. The weakest Man in the House today has 600 acres of spiritual Joy All Rixie. Why do you not go and roup it you Hugo been groaning Over your infirmities for 80 years. Nov give Ono round shout Over your . You say you Havo it so hard. You might Hugo it worse. You wonder Why tills great cold Truu Blo keeps revolving through your soul turning and turning with a Black band of the Crank. A that trouble is to Grindstone on which you Aro to Shur Peu your sickle. To Tho fold so Wako up Tako off your Green spectacles your Brno spectacles your Bluck spectacles. Pull up the Corners of your Mouth As fur us you pull them Down. To the Fields i reap reap Tho tenth Ling. Again i remark in Grace As in farming there is u time for thrashing. I Tell you bluntly a Quot it is Deuth. Just As Tho funner with u fluid beats Tho wheat out of Trio Straw so death boats to soul out of Tho body. Every sickness is a stroke of to flail mud Trio sickbed is Trio thrashing floor. What suy you. Is death to a Good Man Only taking Trio wheat out of Tho Straw that is Ull. An need Man Lias fallen asleep. Only yesterday you saw him in Tho sunny porch playing with his grandchildren. Calmly he received the message to Louvou this world. To Lido a pc aunt Goodby to Bis old friends. The Telegraph curries Tho tidings and of Swift rail Truid Tho Kindred conic wanting once More to look of Tho Faco of dear old Ruud author. Brush Back Tho Gray hairs from his brow. It will Nover ache again. Put him away in the slumber of the Tomb lie a ii not to afraid of that night. Grandfather was never afraid of anything. To will Riso in the morning of the resurrection. Grandfather was always Tho first to Riso. His Volco bus already mingled in the sexology of heaven. Grandfather always did sing in Churell anything ghastly in that no. Thu thrashing of Tho wheat out of Tho Straw. Thai is All. Thu Saviour folds a Lamb in bus bosom. Tho Little child filled us to Uso he toys. At tired Uil up and Down the stairs just us so left them. What if the bund that plucked four of clocks out of the Rne Udow is still it will wave in to eternal Triumph. What if Tho voice that Nudo music in the Homo is still it will sing Tho eternal Hus Anun. Put u White Roso in Ono hand u red Roso in the other hand and u Wreath of Orange blossoms of the brow to White Flower for Tho Victory the red Flower for the Saviours sacrifice Trio Orange blossoms for her marriage Day. Anything ghastly about that of not the Sun went Down and to Flower shut. To wheat thru shod out of the Straw. Quot dear lord give to sleep Quot said a dying boy Tho Sou of Ono of my elders Quot done lord give to and to closed his eyes and awoke in glory. Henry w. Lou follow writing a letter of condolence to those parents said Quot those last words wore beautifully and or. Longfellow know what is poetic. A dear lord give me Quot thus get in cruelty net in Kratli that thu reaper Metio that Day. Quot Ivan an in gig a that Rigl cd Tho Earth and took Tho Flower Wuy. So it May be with us when our work is Ull done. Quot dear lord give to sleep. A tie Guarneri off. I have one More thought to Presont. I Havo spoken of the blowing of Tho sowing of Tho harrowing of Tho reaping of Tho thrashing. I must now speak a Uio Mout of Trio garnering. Where is the Garner need i Tell you of nol so Many have Gono out from your own circles Yea from your own family that you have Hail your eyes of that Garner for Many a year. What a hard time some of them had i in Geth Send pcs of suffering they sweat great drops of blood. They took the Quot cup of Aud they put it to their hot lips and they cried a if it to possible let this Eup pass from with tongues of burning agony they cried Quot of lord deliver Iny soul Quot but they got Over it. They All got Over it. Guru red their tears wiped away their Battles Ull ended their burdens lifted. Gur Zered i the lord of the Harvest will not allow those sheaves to perish in Tho Equinox. Garnered some of us remember of the farm thut the sheaves were put of the top rack which surmounted the Wagon Aud these sheaves were piled higher and higher and after awhile Tho horses started for the Burn and these sheaves swayed to and fro in to wind nud the old Wagon creaked and Tho horses made a struggle and pulled so hard the harness Cumo up in loops of leather of their backs and when Tho front wheel struck Tho elevated door of the Burn it seemed As if thu Load would go no farther until the workmen gave to great shout Aud then with one last Treuil Odous Strain the horses pulled in the Load then they were a harnessed und for Ful after for Ful of Grain fell into Tho mow. Of my friends our getting to heaven May to a pull a Bard pull u very hard pull but these sheaves Are bound to go in. Tho lord of Tho Harvest has promised Seo the Load at last coming to the door of the heavenly Garner. Tho sheaves of the Christian soul Sway to Aud fro in the wind of death Aud the old body croaks under the Load and As the Load strikes Tho floor of Tho celestial Garner it seems is if it Cun go to farther. It is the last struggle until the voices of Angels Aud Tho voices of our departed Kindred and Tho welcoming voice of god shall Send Tho Harvest rolling into Tho Cernul Triumph while nil up Aud Down Tho sky Tho cry is heard a Harvest Homo Harvest Home a fifty years ago. This is the Way it was bound to look when Grandfather had his Quot picker these were the shadows Casl before the coming of conjurer Daguerre and Liis Art like n girl in a Pinafore some Day to Bloom to a goddess fair. Men certainly were not As Black we know As they pictured them so year ago. Ayers Sarsaparilla began to make new men just As the new pictures of men began to be made. Thousands of people fronted the camera with skins made clean from Blotch and blemish because they had purified the blood with Ayer s Sarsaparilla. It is As powerful now As then. Its record proves it. Others imitate the remedy they can to imitate the record so years of cures. Independent order of in North America. The objects and Aims. Information of interest to Temperance workers and those seeking a Refuge from the temptations of siring drink. I ii Uil ills doubts. An amusing Story of i Hung Chung is told in official circles. Whether or not it is accurate in All particulars no one seems to know but the tale is As follows when John w. Foster and mrs. Foster Wero first in China they Wero handsomely entertained by Tho Viceroy Aud a warm Friendship sprang up Between the former american Secretary of state Aud the greatest Man of thu Eastern world. Then us now i Hung Chang was disposed to ask All manner of questions and at Tho first Opportunity he asked mrs. Foster if her husband was not a very great Man Aud a very Rich Man in his own country. Mrs. Foster replied with becoming modesty that or. Foster had held in buy High official positions.
