Ii Titko a tin limit of Iii slurp a a fur Iii Iii Titi of u Sermon of i rat i outer Ami Power the flt in blur Mon. Washington nov. 1-�?Tho musical resources of id nations seem drawn upon by or. Tali age in this Sermon to illustrate a most practical truth. His subject was a thu chant of Tho stars Aud Trio text Tol it Xxxviii a 7. A who Laid Tho Cornerstone thereof when Tho morning stars Sang together Quot we have All seen Tho ceremony at Tho Laving of Tho Cornerstone of Church Asylum or masonic Temple. Into the hollow of tin Stone were placed scroll of history and important documents to be suggestive if. 100 or 200 years after tiie building should be destroyed by Tiro or torn Down. We remember the Silver trowel or Iron Hammer that smote the Square piece of Granite into Sanctity. We remember some venerable Man who presided wielding the trowel or Hummer. We remember aim the music As tile choir stood on the scattered stones and Timber of the building about to be constructed. The leaves of tie notebooks a lettered in Trio wind and were turned Over with a great rustling and we n member How the Bass baritone Tenor contralto and Soprano voices commingled. They Hail for Many Days is Eti rehearsing the special programme that it might pm worthy of laying. I ayin Llu c a or in no to it in a. In my text Tho poet of in. Calls us to it grander ceremony the laying of the foundation of this great Temple of a world. The Cornerstone was a Block of Light and the trowel was of celestial Crystal. All about Ami on the embankments of Clouis stood the Itu Eclie Clitoris ters unrolling their librettos of overture and other worlds clapped shining cymbals while the ceremony went on and god the architect by stroke of Light after Stroko of Light dedicated this great Cathedral of a world with mountains for pillars and sky for frescoes ceiling Aud lowering Fields for a Toor. And Sunrise and Midnight Aurora for upholstery. Quot who Laid the Cornerstone thereof when the morning a stars Sang together Quot Trio fart is that the whole universe was a Complete cadence an Zubro Kii Dit Yramb a musical portfolio. Tho great Sheet of immensity bad been spread out Ami written on it were tiie stars the smaller of them minims the larger of them sustained lion s. The meteors marked Tho staccato passages the whole heavens a Gamut with All sounds intonations modulations the spare Between Trio worlds a musical interval trembling of Stellar Light a quaver the Thunder a Bass Clef Tho wind among Trees a treble Clef. That is tin Way god Lude All things a perfect Harmony. But one Day a Harp string snapped in the great orchestra. One Day u voice sounded out i f time. It Hie Day a discord harsh and terrific. Grated upon the glorious Antiphon. It was sin Tomt made the dissonance and Tomt mrsh discord Lias been sounding through Trio centuries. All the work of christians and philanthropists and reformers of All Ages is to Stop that discord Aud get All things Hack into the a a five Harmony which was heard at Trio laying of the Cornerstone when Tho morning stars Sang together. Before i get through if i am divinely helped. I will make it Plain that sin is discord and righteousness Harmony. That in general things Are out of toll is As Plain As to a musicians ear is the unhappy clash of clarinet and Bassoon in an orchestral rendering. Out of tune. The worlds health out of tune weak lungs and Trio atmosphere in collision disordered Eye and Noonday Light in quarrel rheumatic limb and Damp weather in struggle neuralgia and pneumonia and consumptions and epilepsy is in flocks sweep upon neighbourhood and cities. Where you thud Ono person with sound Throat and keen eyesight and Alert ear and easy respiration and regular pulsation and sep pc limb Aud Primo digestion and steady nerves you find a Hundred who have to lie very careful because this or that or Tho other physic us function is disordered. Tho Huzi Iun in collect out of Tunc Tho judgment wrongly swerved or Tho memory Leaky or to will weak or Tho temper inflammable the Well balanced mind exceptional. Domestic life out of tune ouly hero did Thero a conjugal outbreak of Hueem put ability of temper through the divorce courts or u filial outbreak about a father swill through the surrogates court or a Case of wife beating or husband poisoning through the criminal courts but thousands of families with Juno outside and january within. Society out of tune labor and capital their bands on each other1 Throat spirit of Casto keeping those Down in the social scale who Aro struggling to get up and putting those who arc up in anxiety lest they Ilavu to come Down. No wonder Tho old pianoforte of society is All out of tune when hypocrisy und lying and subterfuge Aud double dealing and sycophancy and Charlu Tauisii and revenge have for 0,000 years been banging away at the keys and stamping Tho pedals. Of All aides there is a Shipwreck of harmonies. Nations in discord without realizing it so wrong is Tho feeling of nation for nation tent symbols chosen Aro fierce Aud destructive. In this country where on skies ure full of Robins Aud doves and morning larks we have our National Symbol Tho fierce and filthy Eagle As cruel a Bird As can be loud in All Tho ornithological catalogues. In great Britain where they have lambs Aud fallow Deer their Symbol is Tho merciless lion. In Russia where from Between her Frozen North und Blooming South ail kindly boosts dwell they oho6u Tho growling Bear. And in the world s heraldry u favorite figure is the dragon the fabled winged Serpent ferocious and dreadful. Aud so fond is the world of Contention that we climb out through the heavens und baptize one of Tho other planets with the spirit of Battle and Call it Mars aft r the god of War. Aud we give to he eighth sign of to Zodiac the name of the scorpion a creature which is Elm Fly celebrated for its deadly sting. Bur. After All tie see symbols Are expressive of the Way nation feels toward nation. Discord wide As the continent Aud bridging tiie Sens. Coca thou groan. I suppose you Havo noticed How less tie the til that lit Lulu our hearts in Christina love. Trio Earth is Dijune Terud and with discord and Tho Minsio Tomt was rendered it Tho laying of thu world s Cornerstone when Trio morning stars Sang together is not heard now. And though Here nil there from this and that part of society and from this Ami that port of Tho Earth there Omos no a thrilling Sulo of Lovo or u Werblo of worship or a Sweet duct of patience they Are drowned out by a discord that shakes tin Earth. Paul says Quot the whole creation Ami while Trio Nightingale Aud tin Wood Lark Aud the Canary and Tho Plover Soniot Quios sing so sweetly that their notes have Boon written out in musical notation Aud it is found Tomt the cuckoo sings in tiie key of a and that the Cormorant is a Basso in Tho winged choir yet sportsman a gun and tin autumnal Ida st often Havo them ruffled and bleeding or dead in Meadow a Forest Paul was right for Trio groan in nature drowns out the Prima Donnas of the sky. Tartini the great musical composer dreamed one night that lie made a contract with seitan Trio latter to to Ever in the Imp Osoro service lint one night lie handed to Untim a violin on which Diabo Liis played such Sweet Luu Siu that i in composer was awakened by Tho emotion and tried to reproduce the sounds and therefrom was written tartini1 most famous Pii co Quot Trio devils so Tiitu a a dream ingenious but faulty for All Melody descends from heaven Alid ouly discords ascend from hell. All hatreds fools Contr version backbiting and revenues ure thu devils Ouatu Are diabolic fugue Aro Demoniac phantasm Are grand Murli or doom Aro Allegro of perdition. Tin Kur of Itutti. But if in this world things in general be out of tune to our frail ear Bow much More so to beings angelic and de stir it takes a skilled artist to Folly appreciate disagreement of sound. Many Havo no capacity to detect a defect of musical execution and though there were in 0111�?T liar us Many offences ugh just Harmony As could crowd in Between Tho Luwi r f of thu Bass and the higher of the Soprano it would give them no discomfort we into on Trio forehead of Tho a a nested artist beads of perspiration would stand out As a result of the harrowing dissonance. Whilo an Amateur was performing on a piano and had just struck the wrong chord John Sebastian Bach the immortal composer entered the room mid the Amateur Ruso in embarrassment nil Baeli rushed past Tho Host who stopped Forward to Greet him and before the keyboard Hud stopped vibrating put his adroit hand upon Tho keys and changed thu painful Inha Nouy into glorious cadence. Then Inch turned and gave sul nation to the Host but the worst of nil discord is moral discord. If society und the world Are painfully discordant to imperfect Man Wlms must they to to a perfect god people try to define what Siu is. It seems Tome that sin is getting out of Harmony with god a disagreement with his holiness with his purity with his Lovo with his commands our will clashing with his will the finite dashing against Tho infinite the frail against the puissant Tho created against Tho creator. If u thousand musicians with fluto and Corot a Pis inn and trumpet and violoncello Tho Hau boy Aud trombone and All Tho wind and stringed instruments thut every gathered in a Dusseldorf Jubilee should resolve that they would play out of tune and put Concord to Tho rack Aud make the place wild with shrieking and grating Ami rasping sounds they could not Lake such a pandemonium As that which rages in a sinful soul when god listens to thu play of its thoughts passions and emotions discord lifelong discord Moddo Piug discord. The world pays More for discord than it docs for consonance. High prices Havo Ixon a mid for music. One Man Guvo $225 to hear Tho swedish songstress in now York and another $525 to hear her in Boston and another $gn0 to Hoar her in Providence. Fabulous prices have been a mid for Sweet sounds but far More Lias Bis paid for discord. The crimean War Cost $1,700,000,000, and Tho american civil War $0,500,000,000 Aud tin War debts of professed Christian nations Are about $15,000,000,000. Tho world pays for this red ticket which admits it to Trio saturnalia of broken Bones and death agonies and destroyed cities and slowed Graves and crushed hearts any amount of Money Suttis asks. Discord discord 1 will 11� i nit in Tunc. But i have to Tell you thut Tho song that tiie morning stars Sang together at in laying of the worlds Cornerstone is m resound again. Mozart s greatest overture was composed Ono night when lie was several times overpowered with sleep and artists say they can Tell Trio places in the music where lie was falling asleep and the places where he Wank Encl so the overture of the morning stars spoken of in my text has been ass a but it will awaken und be More grandly rendered by Trio Over aug stars of the worlds existence than by to morning stars Aud the vespers will to sweeter than the Matins. The work of All Good men und women and of All Good churches und All Reform associations help to bring Tho race Back to Tho original Harmony. Tho rebellious heart to be attuned social life to to attuned commercial ethics to to attuned inter nation Unity to be attuned hemispheres to to attuned. In Olden times Tho choristers bad u tuning Fork with two prongs and they would strike it of the Back of Pew or music rack and put it to Tho car and then Start the tune Aud All the other voices would join. In modern orchestra the Leader has a Complete instrument rightly attuned and to sounds that and All the other performers tune Tho keys of their instruments to make them correspond and draw the Bow Over Tho string und listen Jaud sound it Over augut until All ibs keys Aro screwed to co Cuit Pitili and the discords must into Ono great symphony und Tho curium heists and Tho Baton taps and audiences arc captured with Schumann s Quot Paradise Ami Tho Perl or Rossini s Quot Sta but mater or Bach s a a magnificat Quot in d. Now our world can never to Utt uni d by an imperfect instrument. Even a Cremona would not do. Heaven has ordained the Only instrument mid it is made out of Trio Wood of Tho Cross and Trio voices that accompany it Aro imported voices Contout Rocc of Tho first Christmas night when heaven serenaded Trio Earth with Quot glory to god in Trio highest und on ourth peace Good will to lest to Start too fur off and get lost ill generalities to had hotter begin with ourselves got our own hearts und lives in Harmony with Tho eternal Christ of for his almighty spirit to Nettuno us to chord our will with his will to modulate our life with his life und bring us into unison with All that is pure and self sacrificing Aud heavenly i Tho strings of our nature Are All broken and twisted and Tho Bow is so Slack it cannot evoke anything mul Lillous. Trio instrument Mado for heaven to Piny on Lias been roughly to urged and struck by influences worldly and Demoniac. 0 master hand of Christ restore this split and fractured und despoiled Aud uti Strung nature until first it shall Wail out for our sin und then thrill with divine Pardon t Ulli it let to Harmony. The whole world must also to attuned by Trio same Power. I was in the Fairbanks weighing scale manufactory of Vermont. Six Hundred hands and they Havo never Lead u strike. Complete Harmony Between labor and capital Tho operatives of scores of years in their Beautiful Homes Noar by the mansions of the manufacturers whose invention and Hristian behaviour Mado Tho Enterprise. So All thu world Over Lubor und capital will be brought into Euphony. You Siuy have Beard what is called the a Anvil chorus a composed by Verdi u tune played by Summers great und Small now with mighty stroke and now with heavy Stroko Outing u Grout Iron Anvil. That is what the world has got to come to in Vii of torus yardstick chorus shuttle chorus trowel chorus crowbar chorus Pickas chorus Gold mine chorus Ruil track chorus locomotive chorus. It Cun be done Aud it will to done. So Ull social life will to Tutu god by tic gospel Hurp. There will be of Many classes in society us now but Tho classes will not be regulated by Birtle or wealth or Accident hut by the scale of virtue und torn Vole cd and Puoplo will by assigned to their places As Good or very Good it a most excellent. So also commercial life will to attuned und Thero will be 12 u every dozen Aud in ounces in Usu by Pound und apples at thu Bottom of Trio barn i will lie As sound us those on Trio top and silk goods will not be Cotton Ai d Sellers will not Hutc to charge Hoa car. People Mure than Tho right Prico to cause others will not Puy und goods will conic to you corresponding with Tho Sample by which you Pur chose d them und Coffou will not to Corid and sugar will not be Saudor and milk will not to chalked Aud Sudul cration of food will to u state prison offence a by Rall things Bulj Kunttu Urdl elections in Englund und Trio United states will no More to a grand carnival of defamation and Sci trility but Tho Elevation of righteous men in u righteous Way. In Trio sixteenth Century to singers pulled Tho Fischer Brothers reached Tho lowest Bass Over recorded Aud Tho highest note Ever trilled was by la Baster Della und Cut Liui s voice Hud a Compass of 3>b octaves. But christianity is More wonderful for it runs All up and Down the greatest Heights und the deepest Depths of Tho worlds necessity and it will Compass everything Aud bring it in uce Ord with the song which the morning stars Sung at the laying of the world s Cornerstone. All Tho sacred Musio in Homes und concert Halls and churches tends toward this consummation. Muku it More and More boart. Sing in your families. Sing in your places of Quot business. If to with proper spirit use these faculties we Aro rehearsing for Tho skies. Heaven is to Havo a now song an entirely new song. But i should not wonder if As sometimes on Earth u Tuupo is fashioned out of Many tunes or it is Ono tune with the variations so Somo of Tho songs of the redeemed May have Pluy aug through them the songs of Earth. And How thrilling us coming through Tho great Anthem of the saved accompanied by harpers with their harps and trumpeters with their trumpets if we should hour some of the strains of Antioch and Quot mount Pisgah Quot and Quot Coronation and a a Ledox and a st. Martin s mid Quot Fountain Quot and a Ariel and Quot old Hundred a How they would bring to mind the praying circles Aud communion Days und the christinas festivals Ami the Church worship m while. On Earth we mingled i Liuvao no idea that when we bid Furo Well to Earth we Ore to bid Farewell to All these grand old gospel hymns which melted and captured our souls for so Muny years. Now if sin is discord and righteousness is Barm buy let us get out of Tho one and enter Tho other. After our Droud Ful civil War was Over in the summer of 1809, a Grant National peace Jubilee was held in Boston and As an elder of my Church Bud leu honoured by tiie Solo Tiou of Somo of his Musio to to rendered of that occasion i accompanied him to Trio Jubilee. Forty thousand people sat and stood to Tho great coliseum Eroc Tud for thut purpose. Thousands of wind and stringed instruments. Twelve thousand trained voices. The masterpieces of All Ages rendered hour after hour and Day after Day handels Quot Judas Mac Cabais Quot Spohr a Quot last judgment a Beethoven s Quot mount of olives a Haydn so creation a Mendelssohn s a a Ejub a Meyerbeer s a Coronation March a rolling on Aud up in surges thut billowed against the heavens. The mighty cad no within were a rom panic of the outside by the ringing of thu ills of the City and Cannon on the commons discharged by electricity in exact time with music thundering their us Fol bars of a Harmony that astounded All nations. Sometimes i bowed my Bead and wept sometimes i stood up in the Buchan Tuut und sometimes Tho effect was so overpowering i Felt i could not endure it especially when All Tho voices were in full chorus and Ull Tho Buto is were in full wave Aud Ull thu orchestra in full Triumph and u Hundred anvils under mighty hammers wore in full Platig and All the towers of Trio City rolled in their Majestic sweetness and the whole building quaked with the Boom of 30 Cannon. Pan a Rosa with a voice that will never Gaiu to equated on cart until the or Evangelio voice proclaims that time a Hull i no longer Rose above Ull other sounds in her rendering of our National air a the Star spangled Bauner. A it was too much for u mortal quite enough for an immortal to hear und while some fainted Ono Wou Noily spirit released under its Power sped away to to with god. O lord our god quickly usher in the whole world s peace Jubilee and All islands of the sea join the five continents and All the voices and Ull the musical instruments of Ull nations Combine Aud All the organs thut Ever sounded requiem of sorrow sound Only u grand March of Joy Aud All the Bells that tolled for burial ring for resurrection and All the Cannon that Ever burled death Burross the nations sound Forth eternal Victory Aud Over All Tho acclaim of Earth Aud minstrelsy of heaven Thero will be Lieuard one voice sweeter mud mightier than any human or us Clio voice u voice once full of tears but now full of Triumph the voice of Christ saying �?�1 am Ulp Lui Aud Omega Tho beginning and the end the first and Tho then at the laying of Tho top Stone of the world s history the same voices shall be heard As when it Tho laying of the world s Cornerstone a Tho morning stars Sang Independent order of a a amp my in North America. Is England disappearing any Sarsaparilla is Sarsaparilla. True. So any Tea is Tea. So any flour is flour. But grades differ. You mint the bist. It s so with Sarsaparilla. There Are grades. You want the Best. If you understood Sarsaparilla As 1 Well As you do Tea and flour it would be easy to determine. But you Don t. How should you when you Are going to buy a commodity whose value you Don t know you pick out an old established House to Trade with and Trust their experience and reputation. Do so when buying Sarsaparilla. Ayer s Sarsaparilla has been on the Market 50 years. Your Grandfather used Ayer s. It is a reputable Medicine. There arc Many Sarsaparilla so a hat Only one Ayer s.

This is a serious question is England disappearing readers May pucker up their lips Aud ejaculate a absurd a but facts nevertheless remain and show pretty clearly that England is positively disappearing and May in years to come to marked on Tho map As a vanished Isle. On the coast the sea is encroaching upon the land it an astonishing Rato. Seaside towns and villages Holiday resorts Aro gradually being eaten up Odd the inhabitants driven Inland. In Many parts to sea runs up on a Beach which was ouch far Inland. In other cases churches which were at Ono time far from the sea now stand at Tho Edge of Cliffs und Havo Tho sea lapping almost at their doors. The Goodwin Sands about five Miles off the coast of Kent were at Ono Timo a portion of Tho Mainland itself and Tho property of Earl Goodwin. But Tho sea has swallowed them up. Tho coast of Norfolk is minus three villages which it once possessed ship Deu Eccles and Winsip Well All of which Hutc been taken into the arms of Tho Ocean. Tho Cromer of today stands Miles Inland of the original Cromer. Auburn and Harl Buru two Yorkshire villages once promised to develop into seaport towns of considerable importance but like Tho will of Canute the will of Tho Wuhu Vitants of these villages was ignored by tin rising sea and Auburn Aud Harl Buru now exist in Mere names mud Sand Banks. Dunwich on Tho coast of Suffolk is gradually Ling swallowed up. Every now and then the inhabitants move a distance Inland rebuild their houses Aud shops mud wait Putin try and philosophically for the next Quot notice to quite from Tho sea Many other Seaside places have suffered or ure suffering u 6imilur Fate. It Nuy be urged on Tho Ether hand that some be Osilio towns Aro gradually becoming Inland towns by Tho failure of Tho 6ca to Quot come up to the Mark Quot and running out Only to run in for u Shorter distance. Wisc Holau Sandwich Rye and Southport Are Ull suffering in this Way. Winchelsea and Rye were originally two of our Cinque ports but Tho sea has left them standing High and dry. Sanu Wick was ouch a highly important seaport town. It now stands two or three Miles Inland. To sea is leaving Southport quite in to lurch so much so indeed that Tho inhabitants have had to sink extensive lakes Down on Tho Beach to keep the sea from running off altogether und leaving merely an Ordinary Inland town. But the Extension of our Island in this Way is very much less than Tho encroachment of the sea at other Points und while our Luud is certainly becoming More extensive in Ono direction it is contracting Aud with much greater rapidity in some other.
