Tel a j ago. If a coded it would be Romulu tonary for Good. His subject is Quot Yount men cd Tullonge to nobility and the text ii King i 1?, Quot and tiny lord opened tiny eyes of tin Young Man one morning in Dothan a Young theological student was scared by find aug himself Aud Elisha the Prophet upon whom Lio waited surrounded by a whole army of enemies. But pc be Rubin Klishus wus not feared at Ull because lie saw the mountains full of defuse for him in re minuts Lutidy of fire drawn by horses of fire a is per natural Uppit arum that could not be seen with thu natural eve. So the old minister prayed that the Yonng i mistur might see them also Ami the prayer was answered and the lord opened the eyes of the Young Man and to also saw the fiery procession looking somewhat i suppose like the or Tho alleghenies in autumnal resplendent be. Many Young men standing among the must tremendous realities have their eyes half shut or entirely closed. May god Grant that my Sermon May open wide your eyes to Yorr safety your Opportunity and your destiny i a Rikhi i limit. A mighty defense for a Young Man is a Good Home. Some of my hearers look bark with tenth Batista Etious to their Early Homo. It May have been rude and rustic Bidden among the Hills and architect or upholsterer never planned or us Ord it. Hut nil the fret on princely Walls novt r look d so enticing to you us those rough pm Vii rafters. You can think Ltd no Park or abhor of Trees planted on Faidtintiilil country sent so attractive As the Plain Brook that ran in Ernut of thu old fart House and Sang under Tho weeping Willows. No buried Gateway adorned with statue of Horonzo and swung open i v obsequious Porter in full dress has half the glory of Tho old swing Gale. Many of you have u second dwelling place your adopted Home that also is sacred forever. There you built the first family altar. There your children were Horn. All those Trees you planted. That room is solemn because once in it Over the hot Pillow a lapped the Wing of death. Under Tomt roof you expect when your work is done to lie Down Aud lie. Yon try with Many words to Tell the excellency of the place but you fail. There is Only one word in the language that Cun describe your meaning. It is Home. Now i declare in Tomt Young Man is comparatively Safe who goes out into the world with a Charm like this upon him. The memory of parental solicitude watching planning and praying will be to him a shield and a shelter. I never knew a Matt faithful both to his Early and Udfptnl Homes who at the same time was Given out r to any Gross Fen j n of dissipation or wickedness. who seeks his enjoyment chiefly from outside association rather than in m Tho More quiet and pleasures of which i have so Sci. May he suspected to he on the Broad Road to ruin. Basalt m despised his father s House Aud Yon know his history of bin and his death of Shante. If you seem nuts be scarily isolated from your Kindred until former associates is there not Tome room that you Cun cull your own into it gather Hooks Natl pictures Aud a Harp. Have a portrait Over the mantel. Make ungodly mirth stand hark front the threshold. Couse Cruto some spot with the knee of prayer. By the memory of other Day a father s counsel and a Mother s love and a Sitter s Confidence Call it Home. habits. A Otic r a twice fur n Young Rann is industrious habits. Many Young Meu in it it Iii a Poi Ifo in this a of hot to Inuko their through Thiol cold by Tho usef their a wits rather than the toil of their Huiila a boy now it i s to tie City and fails twice la lore in is As old is his father was when to first saw Tho Spires of the great town. Sitting in some office rented a it .$1,000 a year lie is waiting for the Bank to declare its dividend or goes into the Market expecting t Feiro night to to made Rich by the Rushing up of Tho stocks. But Luck seemed so Dull to resolved on some other tank. Perhaps be borrowed from his employer s Money drawer Aud forgets to put it Back or for merely the purpose of improving his penmanship makes a copy plate of a merchant s signature. Never mind All is right in Trade. In some dark night there May conic in his dreams a video of the Penitentiary but it soon vanishes. In a Short time he will he ready to retire from Tho Busy world and amid his flocks and herds cultivate Tho Domestic Virtues. Then those Young men who one were his school Uiato s and knew to better than to engage in honest work will come with their of teams to draw him logs and Tvito their hard hands to help Cave up his Castle. This is no fancy picture. It is everyday life i should not wonder if there were some Rotten beams in that Beautiful Palace. I should not wonder if dire sickness should smite through the Young Man or if god should pour into his cup of life a draft that would thrill him with unbearable to Tony if Hie children should become to him a living curse making Bis Home a pest Aud a disgrace. I should not wonder if he goes to a miserable grave Aud beyond it into the pm Wing a i Teeth. The Way of Tho ungodly shall perish. My Yonng friends there is no Way to genuine Success except through toil either of head or hand. At Tho Battle of Crecy in 19-10, Tho Prince of Wales finding himself heavily pressed by to enemy sent word to his father for help. The father watching the Battle from a Windmill and seeing his Sou was not wounded Aud could gain the Day if be would event word a no i will not come. Let the boy win his spurs for if god will i Desiro that this Day be his with All its Young Man fight your own Battle All through and Yon shall have Tho Victory. Of it is a Battlo Worth fighting i two Monarch of old fought a Duel Charles v and Francis and the stakes were kingdoms Milan and bar Goudy. You fight with sin and the stake in heaven or hell. Capacity for work. Do not get the fatal idea that you Ora n Genius and i hut Fhyr Storc there is no need if close application. It is hero where multitudes fail. Tho curse of this age is the geniuses no n with enormous self conceit Natl egotism and nothing else. I had rather be an of than a it Euglow Plain Ami plodding and useful rather than High flying tied Good for nothing but to Piek out the eyes of carcasses. Extraordinary capacity without work is cd tra Ordinary failure. There is no Hope for that person who begins life resolved to live by Bis wits for the probability is that he has not any. It was not Safe for Adam even in his us fallen Stuto to have nothing to do Ami then fore god Cnumiaiirliil him to to a Farmer Aud Horticulturist. was to dress the Garden Ami keep it and had lie and his wife obeyed the divine injunction and been i work they would not Ituau been smattering under thu Trees Anil hankering after that fruit which destroyed them stat tin in posterity a proof positive for Ali gis to come that those who do not Attil to their business Are sure to get into Luix Dierf. I do not know that the prodigal in scripture would Ever have been reclaimed had lie not Given tip his Idle habits Natl gone to feeding Swine for a living. The Devil does not so often attack the Man who is Busy with the pen anti Tho Witsik and Tho trowel and the saw Aud the Hummer. is afraid of those weapons. But woo to the Man whom this roaring lion meets Witt his hands in his pockets do not demand that your toil always he elegant and cleanly and refined. There is a certain a nuut of Drudgery through which we must All pass whatever he our Yeeu Putin. You know How Meu Aro sentenced a certain number of years to prison Anil after they have suffered Aud worked out Tho time then they Aro allowed to go free. So it is with All of us. God passed on us Tho sentence a by Tho sweat of thy brow Shalt thou eat we Mast Elduro our time of Drudgery Ami then after awhile to will allowed to go into comparative Liberty. must he willing to endure the sentence. We All know what Drudgery is connected with thu beginning of any Trade or profession but this does not continue All our lives if it he tie students or the merchants or the Nisi Haniel a life. I know you Havo at the beginning Many a hard time but after awhile those things will become easy. You will to your own master. God s sentence will be satisfied. You will lie discharged from prison. Bless god Tomt you have a brain to think Aud hands to work and feet to walk with for in your constant activity o Young Man is Onn of your strongest defences. Put your Trust in god and do your Best. That child bad it right when the horses ran away with the Load of Wood and lie sat on it. When asked if to was frightened he said Quot no i prayed to god Aud Hung on like a itry prot for the Sabbath. Respect Lor the Sabbath will to to tie Young Man another preservative against evil. God has thrust into the toil and int igbo of life a rec routine Day when the soul is especially to to fed. It is no new in High in notion of a wild brained reformer hut an institution established it in beginning. God Lias Tnrclo natural and moral Laws so harmonious time the Lusty As Well As the soul demands this institution. Our bodies uru seven Duy clocks that must be wound up As often is that or they will Ruu Down. Failure must Como sooner or later to Tho Man who Breaks the Salhath. Inspiration Inis culled it the lord s Day and he who devotes it to the world is guilty of robbery. God will not Jet the sin go us punic and either in this world or Tho world to Como. This is the statement of a Man who has broken ibis divine enactment a i was engaged in manufacturing on Tho Lehigh River. On the Sabbath i used to rest hut never regarded god in it. Ono Beautiful Suh Huth. When Tho noise was nil hushed aim the Day was nil that loveliness could Maku it i sat Down on my Piazza Ami went to work inventing n now shuttle. I neither stopped to cat nor drink Rill the Suu went Down. By that time 1 Hud the invention completed. The a Cut morning i exhibited it Aud boasted of my Day to work and was applauded. The shuttle was tried and worked Weil but that Sabbath Day s work Cost me $90,000. We branched out and enlarged and Tho Nerso of heaven was upon me from that Day Onward. A a while the Divino frown must rest upon him who tramples upyt this statute god s special favor will la upon that Young Man who scrupulously observes it. This Day properly observed will throw a hallowed inf Lucico Over All the week. The song Ami Sermon and Sanctuary will hold Hack front presumptuous sins. That Yonng Man who begins Tho duties of life with either secret or open disrespect to the holy Day i von i Tore to Prophesy will meet with no permanent successes. God s curse will fall upon his ship his store his office his studio his body and Iii Sou. The Way of tie wicked he Tura eth upside Down. In one of the old fables it was said that a wonderful child was bom in Bagdad and a magician could hear his footsteps 0,000 Mih Utsy. But i can hear in the footstep of tiat Yonng Man of Bis Way to the House of worship today the step not Only of a lifetime of usefulness but the oncoming slip of eternal Ages of happiness Yel millions of years away. A iffy id cola. A Noble Ideal and confident exp Errn Tion of approximating to it Tirol infallible defense. The Aiti to completes in itis a ibid the great thought that he wishes to Transfer to Tho Canvas or the Marblo before he takes up the Crayon or the chisel. The architect plans out the entire Structure before lie orders the workmen to begin and though there May for a Long while seem to be nothing but blundering and rudeness he Lias in his mind every corinthian Wreath and gothic Arch and byzantine capital. Tho poet arranges Tho entire plot before he begins to chime the first Canto of tingling rhythms. And yet. Strange to Sav there arc Meu who attempt to build their character without knowing whether in the end it shall be a rude tartar s tent or a st. Marks of Venice men who begin to write the in Trucato poem of their lives without knowing whether it shall be a homers Quot Odyssey or a to Dniester s botch. Nine Hundred and in piety Nino men out of a thousand Are living without any Groat life plot. Booted and spurred raid plumed and urging their Swift Courser in Tho hottest haste i ask Quot Hollo Man whither away Quot his re fifty years ago. This is the stamp that the Tetter bore which carried the Story far and wide. Of certain cure for the loathsome sore that bubbled up from the tainted tide of the blood below. And twos Ayer s name and his Sarsaparilla that All now know that was just beginning its fight of Fame with its cures of 50 years ago. Ayers Sarsaparilla is the original Sarsaparilla. It has behind it a record for cures unequalled by any blood purifying compound. It is the Only Sarsaparilla honoured by a medal at the worlds fair of 1893. Others imitate the remedy they can to imitate the record 50 years of cures. Spouse is Rush into Tho Busy shop or Storo of Many a one and taking the plane out of the Man s hand or Iny lug Down the yardstick say Quot what Man is All this about Somich sir and sweat a tie reply will stumble Natl break Down Between Teeth and lips.

Lot Tho Waters be chafed and froth Tung cd and Green with immeasurable Depths. Then take a Torch of burning pitch and scorch into the fromn Tho right mime for it the souls Suie Idu. If one entering upon sinful directions would ouly in his mind or on paper draw out in awful reality this dreadful future he would recoil from it Anil say Quot am i a Dante Tomt by my own life i should write another inferno a Bat if you Are to solved to live n life Suelt As god and Good men will approve do not lot it to n vague dream an indefinite determination but in your mind or upon paper sketch it in nil its Minutte. You ii not know tie changes to which you May to subject but you May know what always will be right until always will is wrong. Let gentleness and Charity and veracity and Faitie sound ill Tho heart of Tho sketch. Of some still Brook s Bank make a lunch and lion lie Down together. Jar us two or three of the Trees of i Ifo not Frost stricken nor ice glazed nor wind stripped but with thick ver Duro waving like the Palms of heaven. On the darkest Cloubil Pinro the Rainbow Tomt Pillow of the dying storm. You need not print the title on the Frunze. Tito dullest will catch Tho design at it glance and say Quot that is the Rood to a Mel on this sen of life what innumerable ships heavily Ludyn and Well rigged yet seem bound for no port swept every whither of wind and wave they go up by the mountains they go Down by the valleys and arc at Leteir wits end. They sail Quot by no Chart they watch no Star they Long for no thurbur. I beg every Young Man today to draw out a sketch of what by the Grace of god to Means to be. Think no excellence so High that you cannot reach it. Be who starts out in life with a Gigli Ideal of thu racer and Faith in its attainment will find himself encased from 11 thousand temptations. There ivc magnificent possibilities before Euch of you Young men of tie Stout heart and Toto buoyant step and to bounding spirit. I would marshal you for grand achievement. God now provides for you the Field and the Armor Aud the fortifications. Who is of the lord s Side a Captain in in Lieut times to encourage his men against the immense Odds on Tho Side of their enemies said Quot Como my men lock these Fellows in the face. They Aro 6,000 you Are 800. Surely the Quot match is even. A Tomt speech gave them the Victory. Be not my hearers dismayed it any time by Wlms Cems a immense Odds against you. Is Fortune is want of education Are men Are devils against you though the multitudes of Earth Aud hell confront you stud up to the charge. With 1,000,000 against you the match is just even. Nay you Havo a decided advantage if god be for us who Cau be against us thus protected you need not spend much time in answering your assailants. Many years ago word came to me that two impostors As Temperance lecturers Hail Becu speaking in Ohio in various places and giving their experience and they told their Audi cute that they Hail Long been intimate with to and and become drunkards by dining at my table where i always had liquors of All sorts. Indignant to Tho last degree i went Down to Patrick Campbell chief of Brooklyn police saying that i was going to Start that night f or Ohio to have those villains arrested and 1 wanted him to Tell me How to make the arrest. Lie smiled Aud said Quot do not waste your time by chasing these men. Go Homo and do your work Uttz they Cau do you to harm. A i Touk his counsel Ami nil was Well. Long ago i made up my mind that if one will put his Trust in god and to faithful to duty he need not fear any evil. Have god on your Side Young Mau Aud All the combined forces of Earth and hell can do you to Ili Imago. I Uki our principle. And this leads me to say that the mightiest defense for a Young Man is the Possession of religions principle. Nothing Cau take tin placet it. May have in Runcis that would put to shame the gratefulness and Courtesy of u lord Chesterfield. Foreign language May drop from his Tongue. Lie Niny to Able to discuss literature and Laws Aud foreign customs. May Wield a pc of Piip Qualo polish Aud Power. His quickness and tact May qualify him for the highest salary of the counting House. To Tuny be us a Tarp Tut Herod Aud us Strong its Samson with us Fine locks is those which Hung has Nom still be is not Safe front . The More elegant his Maimer Aud Tho More fascinating his dress the More peril. Satin docs not cart for the allegiance of a cowardly and illiterate being. cd Quot bring him into efficient service. But he loves to storm that Castle of character which Lias in it the most spoils and treasures. It was not sonic crazy Craft creeping along the roast with a valueless cargo that the pirate attacked but tic ship full winged flagged plying Between great ports carrying its millions of specie. The More your natural Aud acquired accomplishn1 ends the More need of Tho religion of Jesus. That does not Cut in upon or Hack up any smoothness of disposition or behaviour. It gives symmetry. It arrests that in Tho soul which ought to be arrested Aud propels that which ought to lie propelled. It fills up thu Gull cys. It Elev pcs and transforms. To Beauty it gives More Beauty to tact More tact to enthusiasm of nature Moro Euthul Erasm. When Tho holy spirit impresses the image of god on the heart he does not spoil the Canvas. If in ail the multitudes of Young men upon whom religion has acted you could find Ono nature that had been the least damaged i would yield this proposition. Yon May now Havo enough strength of character to repel the various temptations to Grobs wickedness which assail Yon but i do not know in what Strait you May to thrust it Somo future time. Nothing Short of the Grace of the Cross May then be Triblo to deliver Yon from tie Lions. Yon Are not Meeker than Moses nor holier than David nor Moro patient than Job and you ought not to consider yourself Invulnerable. You May have some weak Point of character that you have never discovered and in some hour when you Are unsuspecting the philistines will be upon thee Samson. Trust not in your Good habits or your Early training or your Pride of character. Nothing Short of the Arm of almighty god will to sufficient to uphold you. You look Forward to the world sometimes with a chilling despondency. Choir up i will Tell Jon How Yon May make a Fortune. Quot seek first the kingdom of god Aud his righteousness Aud nil other things shall to added unto Yon�?� i know Yon do not want to be mean in this matter. Give god the freshness of your life. Yon will not have the heart to drink Down Tho brimming end of life and then porn the Dregs v Ciodo a altar. To a Saviour so infinitely generous you Honvo not Tho heart to incl like that. That is not Bravo that is not honorable that is not Muzly. Your greatest want in All the world is a now heart. In gods name i Tell Yon that. And the blessed spirit presses through Tho solemnities and privileges of this holy hour. Put Tho cup of life Etc Nul to your thirsty lips. Thrust it not Back. Mercy offers it bleeding mercy Long suffering mercy. Reject All other friendships to ungrateful for Ull other kindness prove Recreant to All other Burgains but to despise god s Lovo for your immortal soul do not do that. Two . I would like to Sec Somo of you this hour press out of the ranks i f the world until Lay your coup need spirit at the feet of pc Sun a. This hour is no wandering Vagabond staggering Over the Earth. It is it winged messenger of 1 he skies whispering mercy to thy soul. Life is smooth now but after awhile it May be rough wild and precipitate. Tho co comes a crisis in the history of every Man. To Seldom understand that turning Point until it is Lur past. Tho Load of life is forked cud i read on two signboards Quot this is Tho Way to Quot this is Tho Way to ruin. Quot How Apt we Are to pass Tho Fork of the Road without thinking whether it comes out at the door of Bliss or the guts of darkness Many years ago i stood on the anniversary Plu Forni with a minister of Christ who mud tin s remarkable statement Quot thirty years ago two Young Meu started out in Tho evening to attend the Park theater new York where a plus was to be acted in which Tho cause of religion was to be placed in a ridiculous and hypocritical Light. They came to Tho Steps. Tic consciences of both smote them. One started to go Home but returned again to tie door and yet had not courage to enter Aud finally departed. But the other Young Man entered the pit of the theater. It was the turning Point in tie history of these two Young men. The Tau who entered was taught in the whirl of temptation. Sank deeper and deeper in infamy to was lest. That other Young Nutu was saved and he now stands before you to bless god that for 20 years he has been permitted to preach Tho Gospel�?� Quot rejoice o Young Man in thy youth and let thy heart Elsper thee in Quot the Days of thy youth. But know thou that for All these tilings god will bring Ibec into judgment Quot tie Condur tur to clan ills Story. Sex could actor Hodgkins of the grand trunk railway says that in All his time he has never known a woman who paid her fare of the cars to Tell where she was going without being asked. One of his mousing experiences of this kind was with a dignified lady who got on at the Rochester Transfer station. When conductor Hodgkins came to her she called out her Wallet Ami in austere language said a How much is it Quot Quot i done to know Quot replied the conductor. Quot its your duty to know Quot responded the woman Ami follow <1 this with Totne remarks about 1 officials not knowing their duty. Quot if Yon would Tell me where you arc going Quot said the conductor a perhaps i might make a guess it it Quot a Paris me in Mccrut. Early clock. Clocks were introduced in 1720 from great Britain Aud soon came into common use.

The objects and Aims. Information of interest to Temperance workers and those seeking a Refuge from tie temptations of Strong drink. The More important object of this association is Mutual Benefit in the exercises of Temperance fortitude Aud Justice securing to its membership sympathy and Relief in times of sickness and distress and in the event of death the decent Observance of tie necessary funeral obsequies and is based upon and seeks the Extension of tie principles of total abstinence front Ull intoxicating drinks. The order Lias 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.
