His subject is Quot Tim pug pantry of Leto Woods Quot mud his text Latah Lxiv 0, Quot to All do fado As n it is to hard for us to understand a legions truth that god constantly reiterates. As Trio schoolmaster takes n blackboard and puts upon it figures and diagrams so that the scholar May not Only get his lesson through the our but also through the Eye so god takes All Trio truths of his Bible and draws ilium out in diagram on the natural world. Chair pollion the famous Frenchman went Down into Egypt to study the hieroglyphics on monuments and temples. After much labor he deciphered them and announced to the Learned world the result of his investigations. The Wisdom goodness and Power of god Aro written ill hieroglyphics All Over the Earth and All Over the heaven. God Grant that we May have understanding enough to decipher them there Are scriptural passages like my text which need to be studied in the very presence of the natural world. Huhak Kuk says Quot thou Nike st my feet like Hind s foot a a passage which Means nothing save to the Man that knows that the feet of the red Deor or Hind Are peculiarly constructed so that they rail walk among Slippery rocks without falling. Knowing that fact we understand Tomt when Habakkuk says Quot thou Ukkest my feet like hindus 1m sets Forth that the Christian can walk amid the most dangerous and Slippery places without falling. In lamentations we rend that Quot the daughter of my people is cruel like the ostriches of the wilderness a a passage that has no meaning save to the Man who knows that the Ostrich leaves its egg in the Sand to to hatched out by the Sun and that Tow Young Ostrich goes Forth unattended by any maternal kindness. Knowing Quot this the passage is significant a the daughter of my people is cruel like the ostriches of the a Lory of the for tit those know but Little of the meaning of the natural world who have looked at it through the eyes of others Aud from Book or Canvas taken their impression. There Uro some faces so Mobile that photographers cannot take them and the face of nature Lias Snell n flush and sparkle mid life that no human description can gather them. No one knows Trio pathos of a Bird s voice unless lie has sat at summer evening tide at the Edge of a wot is and listened to the cry of the whippoorwill. Thoro is today More glory in one Branch of Sumach than a Painter Coull put on a whole Forest of Naples. God hath struck into the autumnal Leaf a glance that none see but those who Nousio face to face the Mountain looking upon Trio Man Aud the Man looking upon the Mountain. X or several an Nimes i have had a tour to the far West Ami one autumn Bont this time saw that which i shall never Foi get i have seen the autumnal sketches of Cropsey Aud other skillful pencils hut that week i saw a pageant 2,000 Miles Long. Let artists stand Buck when god stretches his Canvas. A grander fee Conclo was never kindled before mortal cues. Along by the Rivers Anil up Aud Down the a ides of the great Hills Aud by to Banks of Trio lakes there was an indescribable mingling of Gold and Orange Aud Crimson and Saffron now sobering into drab and Maroon now to Laming into Solferino Aud Scarlet. Hero Aud there Trio Trees looked us if just their tips Iliad blossomed into Firo. In the morning Light the forests seemed As if they had been transfigured and in the evening hour they looked us if Tho Sunset bad Hurst and dropped upon Tho leaves. In More sequestered spots where the frosts Ltd been hindered in their work we saw Tho first kindling of Trio flames of color in a lowly sprig. Then they rushed up from Branch to brn Noh until Tho glory of Trio lord submerged Trio Forest. Hero you would and a treo just making up its mind to change and Thoro one looked As if wounded at every pore in stood bathed in carnage. Along Tho Banks of Lake Huron Thero Scro Hills Over which there seemed pouring cataracts of fire tossed up and Down and every whither by Trio rocks. Through Somo of Tho ravines to saw icons orally a foaming Stream As though it Wero Rushing to put out Tho conflagration. If at Ono end of Tho Woods a commanding tree would set up its Crimson Wimunc a Trio whole Forest prepare to follow. If gods urn of colors Wero not infinite one swamp that i saw along the Maumee would have exhausted it forever. It seemed us if the a of Divino glory had dashed its surf to the Tiptop of Trio alleghenies and then it had com dripping Down to lowest Leaf Aud deepest Cavern. To fade gradually. Most persons preaching from this text find Only in it a vein of badness. I find that i Lingo two strings to this gospel Haipt a string of 6aduess and u string of Joy infinite. Quot to All do fade As a first like Tho foliage to fado gradually. Tho leaves which week by Foro Luht Felt to Frost have Day by Day been changing in tint and will for May Days yet cling to Tho Bong waiting for the fist of the wind to strike them. Suppose you that Tho pictured Leaf that you hold in your hand took on its color in an hour or in a Day or in a work no. Deeper and deeper Tho flush till Ull Tho voids of its life now seem opened and blooding Uvea a. After awhile loaf after Leaf they fall now those on Tho outer branches then those most hidden until the last spark of the gleaming forgo shall Lyvo been quenched. So gradually to pass away. From Day to Day to hardly see the change. Int Tho frosts Havo touched us. Tho work of decay is going on now a slight cold now a season of Over fatigue now a fever now a stitch in Tho Side now a neuralgia thrust now a Rhou Montio twinge now a fall Little by Little pain by pain less steady of limb sight not so Clear car not so Alert. After awhile we take a staff. Then after much resistance. To come to spectacles instruct of bounding Quot into thu Vel ado to Are willing to to helped in. At lust tie Falls. Forty yours of decaying. No sudden change. No Norco Younik Jiading of the butteries of life Bat u fading away slowly gradually a Trio Leaf is till Leaf i again thu Leaf to undo to make room for others. Not year s for ests will to As grandly foliage As thin. Thero Are. Other generations of Oak leaves to take Trio place of those which this autumn perish. Next May the Radlo of the wind will Rock Tho Young buds. Trio Woods will be Ull a hum with the chorus of Leafy voices. If Tho tree in front of your House like Elijah takes u Chariot Iff fire it in unto will fall upon Elisha. If ill the blast of Trio us autumnal batteries so Many Rucks fall Thoro ure to Servo forces to take Ali or place to defend to fortress of Tho Hills. The beaters of Gold Leaf w ill have More Gold loaf to boat. Tho Crown that drops today from the Hoad of the Oak will to picked up and handed Down for other King to Wear. Let Tho blasts coma they Only Mako room for other Lifa give Way cheerfully. So lieu to go others Tako our spheres. We do not grudge Tho future generations their places. To will Havo had our Good time. Let them Homo on and have their Good time. There is no sighing among these leaves today Boeruso other leaves Uro to follow Thorn. After a lifetime of preaching doctoring Selling sewing or digging lot us cheerfully give Way for those who Coivin on to do the preaching doctoring Selling sewing and digging. God Grant that their life May be brighter than ours Iwuh been. A we get older do not let us to affronted if Young men and women crowd of a Little. To will have had our Day and to must let them Havo Theira. When our voices get cracked lot us not snarl at those who can warble. When our Knees Aro stiffened let us have patience with those who go Fleet As Tho Dis a. Because our Leaf is failing do not let us Des Riiho the a frosted. Autumn must not envy the Spring. Old men must lie patient with boys. Or. Guthrie stood up in Scotland and said Quot you need not think i am old because Lay hair is White. I never was so Young As i am i look Hack to my childhood Days and remember when in Winter nights in to sitting room the children played Tho Blithe st and the gayest of All Trio company wore father und Mother. Although reaching fourscore years of age. They never got old. A do not be disturbed us you Sec Good and great my die. People worry when gome important personage passes off Trio stingo Anil say Quot Iii place will never to but neither Tho Elarch nor the state will Ruffer for it. Tubero will in others to take the plumes. When god takes Ono Man away to has another right Buck of him. God is so Rich in resources that to could Spuro 5.000 Summit Fields mud us urls. If Thoro were go Many. There will to other leaves As Green As exquisitely veined As gracefully etched As Well pointed. However prominent the place to fill our death will not Jar the world. One falling Leaf Doe not shake the Adirondack. A ship is not Well manned unless Thero to an extra Supply of hands Somo working on deck some sound asleep in their hammocks. God Lias manned this world very Well. There will be other seamen nil deck when you and i Are Down in Trio Cabin sound asleep in Tho Liam monks. Not alone to Lurlah. Again As with Tho leaves to fade and fall amid myriads of others. Ono cannot count Tho number of plumes which these frosts Uro plucking from Tho Hills. They will strew All the streams they will Drift into the caverns they will soften the wild beast s Lair Aud fill the Eagle s Eyrie. All thu Nis Lesof Troio Rosic will to covered with their carpet Aud Tho Steps of the Hills glow with a wealth of color and Shapo that will defy Tho looms of Axminster. What uru could bold Tho lushes of All Choso dead leaves who could count Tho hosts that Burn of this funeral Pyro of Tho mountains so we die in concert. Thu clock that strikes the hour of our going will sound thu going of Many thousands. Keeping step with Tho feet of Tiofio who Harry us out will to Tho tramp of hundreds doing Tho same errand. Boyc ecu 60 and 70 people every Day Lio Down in Reou Wood. That Placo has Over 200,000 of Tho dead. I said to Tho Man at Tho Gato Quot then if there Aro so Many hero you must Havo Tho largest to said Churo Wero two roman Catholic cemeteries in the City ouch of which had Moro than this. To Aro All dying. London Ami peking Aro not Tho great cities of Tho world. Tho grave is Tho great City. It hath mightier population longer streets brighter lights thicker dark Nesses. Cesar is Thoro and All his subjects. Nero is there Aud All his victims. City of Kings and paupers i it has Swal owed All our cities. Yet City of silence. No voice no Hoof no wheel no clash to smiting of Hammer no Clack of flying loom no Jar no whisper. Great City of silence of All its million million hands not one of them is lifted. Of Ull its million million eyes not Ono of them sparkles. Of All its million million hearts not Ono pulsates. Tho living Are in Small minority. Ii in Tho movement of Timo Somo great question Between Tho living und Tho Doud should to put Aud god called up All the dead and Tho living to Doc Ido it As to lifted our hands and from All the resting places of the dead they lifted their hands Tho dead would outvoted us. Why to multitude of Tho dying Aud the dead Aro As those in Nimnual leaves Drifting under our feet today. We Marob on toward eternity not by companies of a Hundred or regiments of a thousand or brigades of ten thousands but sixt Ccu Hundred millions Abro Astl marching on i marching on Llou Uty Withers. Again As with variety of appearance the leaves Ilc part so do a you Havo notified that Somo Trees at the first touch of to Frost Loso ail their Beauty they stand withered and Unco Mely and ragged waiting for the Northeast storm to drive them into Tho mire. Tho Sun shining at Noonday gilds them with 110 Beauty. Ragged leaves dead leaves no one stands to study them. They Aro gathered in 00 Vosa they Are Hung on no Wall. So death smites May. There is to Beauty in their departure. Ono Sharp Frost of sickness or one blast off the cold Waters Aud Thoy Aro Gona no tinge of Hope. No Pho Cliecy of heaven. Their Spring was Ull a loom with Bright prospects their summer thick foliage with opportunities but october came and their glory went. Frosted in Early 1 autumn the frosts coma but do not Steih to dui Nugo vegetation. They ure Light frosts. But some morning you look out of Tho window and say a Thero was a Blok Frost last night Quot and you know that from thut Day everything will Wither. So men seem to got along without religion amid Tho annoyances and vexations of life thut nip Thorn slightly hero and nip Thorn there but after Whilo death comes. It is a Black Frost and All is ended. Of what withering and scattering death makes among those not prepared to meet it they Leav everything pleasant behind to bump their House their Humilius Thui friends their books their pictures and step out of the Sunshine into Trio Shadow. They quit Tho prese Ueo of Bird and Bloom Aud wave to go us beckoned und . Tho Bower in which they stood and Sung and wove of Huplet und Quot made themselves merry lius gone Down under us awful Equinox tial. No Boll Cun toll one half Tho Dolo fullness of their condition. Frosted 1 but thank god thut is not thu Way Puoplo us ways die. Tell Ino on what Day of All Tho year the leaves of Tho Woodbine Aro As Bright us they Aro today. So Ohr Matiun character is never so attractive As in Tho dying hour. Such go into Trio Gravu not As a dog with frown and harsh voice driven into a Kennel but they puss Uway calmly brightly Swo otly grandly As Tho Leaf 1 As Tho loaf i Why go to Tho Dout bed of distinguished men when them is hardly a House on this Street but from it a Christian has departed when your baby died Thero worn enough Angels in Tho room to Havo chanted a Coronation. When your futher died you sat watching and after awhile Foit of his writ and then put your hand under his Arm to see if Thoro Wero buy warmth left and placed Tho Mirror to Trio Mouth to see if them worn any sign of breathing and when All our Over Yon thought How grandly he slept a giant resting after a Battle. A of. Thero ure May Christian deathbed Tho chariots of god coma to Tuko his children Homo Are speeding every whither. This one Hults at the Gato of princes. Tho shout of captives breaking their Chuins comes on Trio morning Ulm. Trio heavens ring again and again with Tho Cornu Tiou. Tho 12 Gates of heaven Aro crowded with Trio Seei Diug righteous. I Seo Tho us cum Luton glories of a thousand Christian death Beds an autumnal Forest illumined by 1111 autumnal Sunset they died not in Shamo but la Triumph i As Tho Leaf i As Trio loaf i to i Tau again. Lastly As Trio leaves fado mud fall Only to Rise so do to. All this Golden Shower of Tho Woods is making Trio ground Richer and in Trio juice and sap and life of the tree Tho leaves will Como up again. Next May Tho South wind will blow Tho resurrection trumpet and they will Riso. So to fall in Tho dust Only to Rise again. Quot Tho hour is coming when All who Aro i their Graves Hull i11 a his voice and Como it would to u horrible consideration to think that on bodies Wor always to Iio in Tho ground. However be until us Tho Flowers you Plaut Thero to do not Tuut to Muko our Over lasting residence in such a place. I Havo with those eyes seen so Many of Tho gloried of Tho natural world and the Radiant faces of my friends that i do not want to think thut when i close them in death i Bull Yovor open them again. It is said enough to Havo a hand or foot amputated. In n Hospital Notor a Soldier Bud Hod his Huud taken off to said Quot Goodby dear old hand you Bovo Doug me u great Deal of Good service a and burst into tears. It is a Moro awful thing to think of having the whole body amputated from to Sony forever. I must Liuvao my body again to Seo with to Bear with to walk with. With this hand i must clasp Tho hand of my loved ones Whon i have passed clean Over Jordan Aud with it wave the triumphs of my King. Aim to shall Rise again. We shall Riso again. As Tho Leaf 1 As Trio Leaf crossing Tho Atlantic Tho ship May founder und our bodies to eaten by Tho Sharks but god Sumeth Leviathan and to shall come again. In awful explosion of factory boiler our bodies May to shattered into a Hundred fragments in the air but god watches Tho discs tor and we Shull Como again. To will drug Tho deep und ransack Tho Tomb and upturn Tho wilderness und torture Tho Mountain but to will find us and fetch us out Aud no to judgment und to Victory. To Shull Como no with perfect Eye with perfect hand with perfect foot Aud with perfect body All our weaknesses left behind. To fall but to Riso. We die but we live again. We Moldor away but to come to higher unfolding. As Tho loaf 1 As Tho loaf i some queer industries. Ayers Cherry pectoral costs More than other medicines. But then it cures More than other medicines.

They Are not rising those cuts 011 water As might to i Forred from the title but have leased an Island in Trio great Luke which is now plentifully stocked with both sexes of screeching felines. There ure still others in the Nous Fen Tiftic category of queer occupations hut it will Only to necessary to mention a few. Ono is a Rattlesnake Quot Farmer Quot who lives in the Ozark mountains and makes Tho products of his Quot farm Quot bring Money from three different directions. Thu Oil lie Ili poses of to druggists who have regular customers that believe it to be n Panacea for a Hundred different ills. Thu skins he Sells to would to cowboys who use them As Fiat bands and the skeletons Are always u ready Sulo Tho purchasers being the curators of the natural history departments of the different Coll go and society museums. Trio Man who wakes people up in Tho Jour using the old Cork collectors and Tho dog Cut Liers Aro Well known characters in every Large City. Tho individuals who gain a livelihood in pursuits that Aro strictly scientific Are equal in As numerous us those who follow Tho More Humble callings. In the list of occupations that Uro strictly scientific is Trio manufacture of artificial eggs artificial Coffee and false diamonds also the Industry of making buttons Combs penholder mud other articles of a similar nature from blood collected it Tho Slaughter Bouses. To Man who makes billiard balls buttons und rings from potatoes which have been treated to u solution of nitric and sulphuric acids is also the proprietor of an a Industry Quot wherein the fundamental principles Aro strictly scientific. But the Queerest of Ull is carried 011 by two Young pennsylvanians who Ore my King ii regular business of extracting the Poison from honeybees. According to Tho accounts they have two different ways of collecting their crop of venom. In the first the bees Aro cd night and held with their Nadu Ivous in Small Glass tubes until Tho Poison sacs have been emptied. In the second they Art placed in a bottle of wire netting Aud enraged until the tiny drops of venom fall into Trio alcohol which fills the lower third of the bottle. This venom is said to be a Sovereign remedy for cancer rheumatism Snake bite Aud u Hundred others of Tho More terrible ills of st Lonis Republic. A a the re irrigation in mar it would seem that the planet Mars is now in a condition to which the Earth must Como. It is struggling against Tho gradual disappearance of water of its surface mud in its atmosphere. There is no weather there for there is 110 ruin Aud there Are to winds. Dew in Winter is deposited of its poles in Tho form of Snow. The rest of the planet consists of deserts with very slight elevations. Trio inhabitants have met this state of things by a Gigantic system of irrigation. What we Call Cukuls ure irrigated districts about 30 Miles wide with a canal running through them from which water is distributed. Here und there Aro Largo Oates of irrigation and these oases Are connected with each other by Means of Trio canals. Whon the snows of Tho poles melt the melted water is distributed Over the planet mud thus crops Uro produced.
