Now that i have asked Yon in regard to your welfare you naturally ask How i am. Very Well thank Yon. Whether it wus the bracing air of Tho mountains or a both in the surf of Long Island Beach or whether it is Tho Joy of standing in thib Grout group of want hearted friends or who Thor it is a now appreciation of the goodness of god i cannot Teil i simply know i am Happy. It was said that John Moffatt the great methodist pc usher occasionally got fast in his Sermon and to extricate himself would cry a Halle Ninh a i am in no such predicament today but 1 Nin full of Tho same Rhu Sodio ejaculation. Starting out this morning on a new ecclesiastical year i want to give you the pc Osnoto of my next 13 months ministry. A i want to set it to Tho tunes of Quot Antioch Quot a Ariel Quot i want to put a now trim pot Stop into my sermons. To do wrong if we allow our personal sorrows to in Teoforo with the glorious fact that Tho kingdom is coming. To Are wicked if to allow apprehension of National disaster to put Down our Faith in god and in Tho Mission of our american hoopla. Tho god who hath been on the Side of this nation since Tho Ltd of july 1776, will see to it hint this nution shall not commit sni Cido on nov. 3, 1896. By Tho time Tho unparalleled harvests of this summer get Down to the Seaboard to shall to standing in n Sunburst of National Prosperity that will paralyse Tho pessimists who by their evil prop Coios arc blaspheming Tho god who hath blessed this nation Asho hath blessed no other. Votca of old Norfi. In All our Christian work Yon and i want Moro of the element of Gladdess. No Man had n right to say that Christ never inn hed. Do Yon suppose that to was glum at Tho wedding in Canna of Galileo do you suppose that Christ was unresponsive when Tho children clambered Over his knee and Shon Dor it his own incl Tatlor do Yun suppose that the evangelist meant nothing when he Suid of Christ Quot he rejoiced in spirit a do you believe that Tho Divino Christ who pours ail Tho Waters Over the rocks at Vernal Falls Yos Omito docs not beige to in Tho sparkle Aud Gallop and tumultuous Joy and Rushing raptures of human life i tic love not Only that Tho morning in ugh Aud that the mountains laugh and that Tho seas laugh Aud that Tho cascades laugh but that Christ laughed. Moreover Toko a laugh and a tear into an Alembic Aud assay them and test them Aud Analyse them and Yon will often find As much of Tho pure Gold of religion in a laugh of in a tear. Deep spiritual Joy always shows itself in facial illumination. John Wesley said to was sure of a Good religious impression being produced because of what to Calls Tho Grout gladness to saw among Tho people. Godless Merri Mout is blasphemy anywhere Bat of Christian Joy is appropriate everywhere. Moreover Tho Outlook of Tho world ought to stir us to gladness. Astronomers disturbed Many Puoplo by tolling them thur there was danger of Stellar collision. To were told by these astronomers that there Are worlds coming very near together and that to shall Havo plagues and wars and tumults and perhaps the worlds destruction. Do not to scared. If you Havo Ever stood at a Railroad Center where 10 or 20 or 80 rail tracks Cross each other and soon that by the movement of the switch one or two inches Tho train shoots this Way and that without colliding then Yon May understand How 50 worlds May come within an Inch of disaster and that Inch Buas Good As 1, Coo 000 mile if a human switch tender can shoot the trains this Way and that without harm cannot the band thut for thousands of years has up iced Tho universe Koep our Little world out of Barm s Way Christian geologists Tell us that this world was millions of years in building. Well now i do not think god would Tonko millions of years to build a House which was to last Only 6,000 years. There is nothing in Tho world or outside Tho world terrestrial or astronomical toe site dismay. I wish that Somo Stout gospel Breeze might scatter All the malaria of human foreboding. The Sun Rose this morning at about 6 of clock and i think that is just about the hour in the worlds history. A the Day is at hand. A the first Ray of Tho Dawn i Seo in the gradual substitution of diplomatic skill for Haman butchery. Within to last 25 years there Havo been International differences which would have brought a Shook of arms in any other any but which were peacefully adjusted the pen taking the piano of the sword. The venezuelan controversy in any other ago of the world would have brought Shook of arms but now is being so quietly adjusted that no one knows ju3t How it is being settled. The Alabama question in any other age of the world would have caused War Between Tho United state and England. How was it settled by men of War off the Narrows or off the mers6y? by the Gulf Stream of the Ocean crossed by a Gulf Stream of human blood by the pathway of nations Incarnadine no. A few Wise men go into a quiet room at Geneva talk the matter Over and Telegraph to Washington and to Loudon Quot All peace peacoat England pays to the United states the amount awarded pays really More than she ought to have paid. But still All but Alabama Broil is settled settled forever. Arbitration Lucile Octoaf Battle. So Tho quarrel about the Canadian fisheries in any other age would have caused War Between Tho United states and Englund. England said Quot pay me for Tho invasion of my Canadian the United states said a i will not pay Well Tho two nations any a i guess we had Bottor Leavo the whole matter to u Tho commission is appointed and Tho commission examines the affair and the commission reports and pay to ought pay to must pay Woda not a Pound of Jiow Der burned no our Hurt so much us by the scratch of a pin. Arbitration instead of Battle. So Tho samoan controversy in any Othor ago would Havn brought Gormany and the United states into bloody collision. But nil is settled. Arbitration instead of Battla Franco will never Hugnin i think through the Pec Cadillo of an Omassa Dor bring on u Butylo with other nations. Slio sees that god in punishment at Sedan blotted out the French Empire and Tho Only aspirant for that throne who had Nuy right of expectation Dios in n War that has not even the dignity of being respectable. What is Tho Leaf that Eagland would Liko to tear out of her history Tho Zulu War. Down wit i the sword Aud up with Tho Trent i to in tie country might better Havo settled our sectional difficulties by arbitration t Han by Tho trial of Tho sword. Philanthropy said to Tho North Quot pay Down a certain amount of Money for the Purchase of the slaves and Lut All Elioso born after n certain Timo be born philanthropy at Trio Bilimo Timo said to Tho South Quot you sell the slaves Aud get rid of this great National contest Aud the North replied Quot i won t pay a the South replied Quot i won t War our a million Dnad men and a National debt which might Havo ground this nation to pow Dorl wily did to not let William h. Seward of now York and Alexandor h. Stephens of Georgia go out and spend n Fow Days in Der Tho Trees on Tho Banks of the Polouino and talk Tho Mattor Over and Sottilo it As Settle it they could rubber than Tho North pay in Oost of War $4,700,000,000, and Tho South pay $4,750,000,000, the destroying Angol Loav aug the first born dead in so Many houses All the Way from Tho Penobscot to the Alabama. Be aged men whose sons fell in the strife do you not think that would have Boon Bottor of yes to Havo Como to believe i think in this country that arbitration is Bottor than Battla a word for poor to. I May to mistaken but i Hope that the last War Bot ecu Christian nations is ended. Barbarians May mix their War paint and Ghinns and Japan Cego into wholesale mrs macros and afghan and Zulu hurl poisoned arrows but i think Christian nations have gradually Learned that War is disaster to Victor As Well is vanquished and that almost anything bought by blood is bought at too dear a Price. I wish to god this nation might to a Model of willingness for arbitration. Nou Sedof killing another Indian. No need of sacrificing Nuy Bravo general custers.1 Stop exasperating the red Man und there will be no Moro arrows shot out from Tho ambush mints. A general of Tho United states army in High repute throughout this Laud and who perhaps had been in Moro Indian wars than any other officer Aud who had been wounded again and Gaiu in Bohnof of our government in Byttlo against Tho indians told to thut All the wars that had Ever occurred Between indians und Whito men had been provoked by Whito men and that there Wos no exception to the Rula while to Are arbitrating with of Istian nations let is toward bar Burnns Harry ourselves in a manner in provocative of contest. Let me put myself in their place. I inherit a Large estate and Tho Waters no Rich with fish Aud the Woods Are Rongful with Birds and my Cornfields Are Silken and Golden. Hero is my Sisters Ruvo. Out yonder under Tho Largo Trio my futher died. An invader comes and proposes to drive to off and Tako Possession of my property. To crowds Moback to crowds me on and crowds to into a closer Corner until after awhile Isay Quot stand Buck Don crowd me any More or i la strike what right Havo you to Como Here Oil drive me off my promises i got this farm from my father Aud to got it from his father. What right Hutc you to Como hero and molest me Quot you blandly say Quot of i know More than you a i belong to a higher civilization. I Cut my hair Shorter than you a i could put this ground to a great Deal better use than you do. A and you keep crowding Moback and crowding me on into a closer Corner and a closer Corner until one Day i look around upon my suffering family and fired by their hardships i hew Yon in Twain. Forthwith All the world comes to your funeral to pronounce Eulogius comes to my execution to anathema time a Yoa Aro the hero. I am Tho culprit Bohol the United states government and Tho North american Indian i the red Man has stood More wrongs than i would or Yoa we would have struck sooner deeper. That which is right in Defenso of a Washington Homo is right in defense of a Home on top of the Sierra Nevada. Bosforo this dwindling red race Dies completely out i wish that this generation might by common Justice atone for the inhumanity of its predecessors. In the Day of god s judgment i would rather be a blood smeared Modoc than a swindling United states officer on an Indian reservation one was a barbarian and a Savago and never pretended to be anything but a barbarian and a Savage. The other pretended to be a representative of a Christian nation. Notwithstanding All this Tho general disgust with War and the substitution of diplomatic skill for Tho glittering Edge of keen steel is a sign unmistakable that Quot the Day is at put Taace conquered. I find another Ray of Down in the compression of the world s distances. What a slow Snail like almost impossible thing would have been the worlds rectification with 1,400,000.000 of population and no facile Means of communication. But now through telegraphy for the Eye and telephonic in Timroy for Tho ear and through steam boating and railroading the 25,000 Miles of the worlds circumference Are shr Veling up into insignificant Brevity. Hon Kong is nearer to new York than a few years ago new Haven was. Bombay Moscow Madras Melbourne within speaking distance. Purchase a telegraphic Chart and by the Blue lines see the telegraphs of the land and by Job red lines Iho cables a ruler the eco an. Yon see what Opportunity this is going you Safe into Tho Harbor you patiently submit to present distress with the thought of Safe arrival. Now i want to a. Lull Ali ill to oiu1. Isas t us. A v in. 11 mme a a to give for the final movements of. A a Jow whether we arc coming on toward christianity. A fortress Muy to months or years in building but after it is constructed it May do nil its work in 20 minutes. Christianity has Beon planting its batteries for 10 centuries and May go on in the work through other centuries but when thobe batteries Aro thoroughly planted those fortresses Aro fully built they May All do their work in 24 hours. Tho world sometimes derides Tho Church for slowness of movement is science any a Nikor did it not take science 6,052 years to find onto simple a tiling As Tho circulation of the human blood with the Earth and the sky full of Woluc Trinity Scie Uoo took 5,800 years before it oven guessed that there was any practical use that might be made of this Subtle and mighty elem out when Good men Tako Possession of All these. Sclan Tifilo Foross and nil these agencies of invention i do not know that Tho redemption of Tho world will be More than Tho work of half a Day. Do we not Road the noon s speech at Tho pro ogling of parliament Tho Day before in London if that to so is it anything marvelous to Bolive that in 24 hours a divine communication can Roach Tho whole Earth suppose Christ should descend on the nations Many expect thut Christ will Como among Tho nations personally. Suppose that tomorrow morning the Sou of god from a hovering Cloud should descend upon these cities. Would not that fact be known All Tho world Over in 24 hours suppose he should present Bis gospel in a few words saying a i am Tho Sou of god. I Cumo to Pardon All your sins and to Hoal All your sorrow. To Provo that i am a supernatural being i have just descended from the Clouds. A you Bolive me and do you believe me now Quot Why All Tho Telegraph stations of the Earth would be crowded As none of them were Ever crowded just after a Shipwreck. I toll you All these things to show you it is not among Tho impossibilities or even Tho i probabilities that Christ will conquer Tho whole Earth Aud do it i Stanter when the Timo Cornea there Aro fore Toenings in the air. Something Groat is going to happen. I do not think that Jupiter is going to run us Down or that Tho nolo of the world 1b going to break but i mean something great for Tho worlds Blessing and not for the world s damage is going to happen. I think Tho world has had thar Donough. Enough Tho famines and Pla Guca enough Tho Asiatic of Overaa enough the wars. Enough Tho Shipwreck a enough Tho Confida Gratioza i think our world could stand right Well a proves Sion of Prosperi ties and triumphs. Better be on the Lookout. Better Havo your observatories open toward the heavens and Tho lenses of your most powerful Tolee expos Woll polished. Better Havo All your Leyden jars ready for some now pal Saliou of might influence. Better Havo new fonts of Typo in your printing offices to set up Somo astounding Good news. Bottor Havo Somo new Banner that i is never been carried ready for Suddot procession Botter have the Bells in your Church towers Well Hung Aud rope within reach that you May ring out Tho marriage of the King s son. Cleanse All your courthouses for the judge of Ull Tho Earth May appear. Let All your legislative Halls to gilded or Tho great lawgiver May be about to t come. Drive off the thrones of despotism All Tho occupants for Tho King of heaven and Oarth May to about to Rogn. The darkness of Tho night is Blooming and whitening into the lilies of morning Cloud and the lilies reddening into the roses of stronger Day fit garlands whether Whito or red for him on Whoso Hoad Ore Many crowns. A the Day is at from desert to Garden. Ono More Ray of Tho Dawn i Seo in facts chronological and mathematical. Como now do not lot us do another stroke of work until we Havo settled Ono matter. What is going to be Tho final Issue of this great contest Between sin and righteousness which is going to prove himself the stronger god or Dia Bolus is this world going to be All Garden or All desert now let us have that matter settled. If we beige to Isaiah and Ezekiel und Hosea and Micah and Malachi und John and Peter and Paul and Tho lord himself to beige to that it is going to be All Garden. But let us Havn it settled. Let us know whether to Aro working on toward a Success or toward a dead failure. If Thero is a Thild in your House sick and you Aro into to is going to got Well Yon sympathize with present pains but All Tho Torobo Diug is gone. If you Are in a of clout off Tho Florida coast and Tho Captain assures Yoa Tho vessel is stanch und Tho winds Are changing for n better Quarter and he is sure be will bring fifty years ago. This la the Cradle in which there grew that thought of a philanthropic brain remedy that would make life new for the multitudes that were racked with pain. Twas Sarsaparilla As made you know by Ayer some 50 years ago. Ayers Sarsaparilla was in its infancy half a Century ago. To Day it doth Quot bestrides the narrow world like a what is the secret of its Power its cures the number of them i the wonder of them imitators have followed it from the beginning of its Success. They Are still behind it. Wearing the Only medal granted to Sarsaparilla in the world s fair of 1893, it Points proudly to its record. Others imitate the remedy they can to imitate the record 5o years of cures. Dismay darkness and defeat or on toward Light and blessedness. You and 1 believe Tho Lutter quid if so every year to spend is Ono year subtracted from the worlds woe und every event that passes whether Bright or dark brings us Odd event nearer a Happy consummation and by All that is inexorable in chronology and mathematics i commend you to Good cheer and courage. If there is anything in arithmetic if you subtract two from five and Leavo three then by every rolling Sun to Are coming on toward a magnificent Tormina then every Winter passed is one severity less for on poor world. Thon every summer gone by brings is Neurer unfading Nebo Roscene. Put your algebra Down on the top of your Bible and rejoice. If it is nearer morning at 8 o Olock than it is at 2, if it is nearer morning at 4 of Olock than it is at 3, then we Are nearer the Down of Tho worlds deliverance. Gods clock seems to go very slowly Bat the pendulum Swinge and the hands move and it will yet strike noon. The Sun and the Moon stood still once. They will never stand still again until Thoy Stop forever. If you believe arithmetic As Woll As your Bible you must beige to to Are nearer Tho Dawn. Quot Tho Day is at physical and spiritual. There is a class of Phenomena which makes to think that the spiritual and heavenly world May after awhile make a demonstration in this world which will bring Ull moral and spiritual things to a Climax. Now i am no spiritualist but every intelligent Man Lias noticed that there Are strange and mysterious things which Indi Oato to him that perhaps Tho spiritual world is not so fur off As sometimes we Vonjoo Turo and that after awhile from Tho spiritual and he Vouly world there May be a demonstration upon our world for its betterment. We Call it magnetism or to cull it mesmerism or to Call it electricity because we want some term to cover up our ignorance. I do not know what it is. I never heard an audible voice from the Othor would. I am persuaded of this however that Tho Voil Between this world and Tho next is getting thinner and thinner and that perhaps after awhile at Tho Call of god a not at the Coll of Tho Davenport Brothers or Andrew Jackson Davis some of the old scriptural warriors some of Tho spirits of Othor Days mighty for god a Joshua or a Caleb or a David or a Paul May come Down and help is in the Battle against unrighteousness. Of i How i would like to have them Here him of the red sea him of the Valley of Ajalon him of Mars Hill English history says that Robort Clayton of Tho English cavalry at the Cloeo of the War bought up ail Tho old cavalry horses lest they should be turned out to Drudgery Aud hard work und bought a piece of ground at knaves mire Heath and turned out these old warhorse into the thickest and richest pasture to spend Tho rest of their Days As compensation for what they had done in other rays one Hay a a . Came up and these warhorse mistook Tho Thunder of Tho skies for the Thunder of Battle and they wheeled into line no riders on their backs they wheeled into line ready for the fray. And i doubt me whether when Tho last to Binder of this Battle for god and truth goes booming through the heavens Tho old scriptural warriors can keep their places on their throne methinks they will Spring into the fight and Exchange Crown for helmet and Palm Branch for weapon and coma Clown out of Tho King s galleries into Tho Renu crying Quot Mako room i i must fight in this great armageddon i Quot the old warhorse mingling in the fight beloved people i preach this Sermon because i want Yon to toil with the sunlight in your faces. I want you old men to understand before you die that All Tho work Yoa did for god while yet your oar was Alert Aud your foot Fleet is going to be counted up in the final Vioto Ric i want a 1 these younger people to understand that when they toil for god they always win the Day that All prayers Aro answered and All Christian work is in some Way effectual Aud that the tide is setting in the right direction and that All heaven is on our Side saintly cherubic arc angelic omnipotent Chariot Aud throne doxology Aud procession principalities and Dominion he who hath Tho Moon under his feet and Ull Tho armies of heaven on Whito horse brother brother nil i am afraid of is not that Christ will lose the Battle but that you will not get into it Quick enough to do something worthy of on blood bought immortality. O Christ How shall i meet thee thou of Tho scarred brow and Tho scarred Back and the scarred hand and the scarred foot and the scarred breast if i have no soars or wounds gotten in thy service it shall not be so. I step out today in front of the Battle. Como on to Foos of god i dare Yon to the combat Como on with pub dipped i malignancy. Como on with tongues forked Aud Vitorino. Come on with types soaked in the scum of the eternal pit i defy yen i come of i Bare my brow i uncover my heart strike i cannot see my lord until i Havo Boon Hurt for Christ if we do not suffer with him on Earth we cannot be glorified with him in heaven. Take Good heart on on on i see. The skies have brightened Seo the Hoor is about to come pick out nil the cheesiest of the anthems. Let Tho orchestra string their Best instrument Quot the night is for spent Iho dry is at hand. A Bliia o Truu Bull an inventory of the estate of the late Lyman Trumbull pm in probate proceedings shows that it amounted to f 178,000. The probate invoice affords 1 obvious proof that every Dollar in value j this great statesman s property was absolutely clean. Not a Dollar bad the taint of abuse from perverted off Loial influence or Loose professional practices. Lyman Trumbull a official life extended Over a period of 40 years. was a member of Tho United states Senate 18 year the amount of the estate left by him is absolute proof of his purity in Public life. It is no greater in amount than should be accumulated during a Long profo6sicual career by any Man with Ordinary Economy and Thrift and sagacious limited investment this evidence of the purity of his character was not needed by those who were familiar with his Long and distinguished career. But it is refreshing to find circumstantial evidence so obvious of a Treut and pure cd am 8. Independent order of in North America. The objects and Aims.
