In Hungo this morning produces a Sermon appropriate to individual and notional . The subject was Quot guts of Carbuncle a to text is Lamb Liv 12, a a and 1 will Munt thy windows of agates and thy Gates of perhaps because u human disease of most painful and Oft Quinn fatal character is named after it Tho Church and Tho world have never done Justice to that intense and All suggestive precious Stone the Carbuncle. The Pearl that Christ picked up to illustrate his Sermon. Aud the Jasper and the Sapphire and the amethyst which the apocalyptic vision Masones into Tho will of heaven love had proper recognition but this in All Tho Ages is Tho first Sermon 011 the Carbuncle. This precious Stone is found i Tho East indies in color is in intense Scarlet. And held up Between your Eye and Tho Sun it is n burning Coal. The poet puts it into rhythm Osho writes like to to burning Coul a Cuco a Jim its name. Among Tho Omsk Wiki anthrax known to faze. God sets it High up in Bible crystallography. To cuts it with a divine chisel. Shapes it with a proviso geometry Aud kindles its fire into in almost us Jinnia turn flume of Beauty. Its Law of symmetry its jaw of zones its Law of parallelism something to excite Tho Umu Lemeut of the scientist Chimo the cantos of the poet mud arouse Tho adoration of the Christian. No one hut Tho infinite god could fashion a Carbuncle As Largo us your thumb Nail Aud As if to make All Ages appreciate this precious Stone to ordered it Sot in the first Row of Tho High priest s breastplate in Olden time mud higher up than the Onyx and the Emerald and the Diamond and in Ezekiel s prophecies concerning the splendours of the Tyrian court Tho Carbuncle is mentioned the Brillian cies of the Walls and of the toss outed floors suggested by the Bible sentence Quot thou Hast walked up and Down in the midst of the stones of but in my text it is not n solitary specimen that i hand you As the Koeiner of a museum might take Down from the shelf a precious Stone and allow you to examine it for is it the panel of a door Tomt you might stand and study for its unique carvings or bronzed tra Ceries but there is a whole Gate of it Listul Bosforo our admiring and astounded vision Aye two Gates of it Aye Many Gates of it Quot i will Mako by Gates of what Gates Gates of the Church. Gates of us thing Worth possessing. Gates of successful Enterprise. Gates of salvation. Gates of National achievement. Isaiah who wrote this text wrote also Ull that about Christ Quot Asthon Lamb to Tho Slaughter Quot and spoke of Christ us saying Quot i he voted the wine press alone a and wrote Quot who is thin but cometh from Edom with dyed garments from Boz Ruh a Ami do you think that Isaiah in my text merely happened to represent the Gates As red guts As Tarmino guts us Gates of Carbuncle no. To Means that it is through atonement through blood red struggle through agonies to get into anything Worth getting into. Heavens Gates May Well to made of Pearl a Bright pellucid cheerful Erys Pulliz Tiou because Ull u10 struggles Ore Over mud there is beyond those Gates nothing but rep Iris and cantata and triumphal procession and everlasting Holiday mud kiss of reunion and so Tho 12 Gates Are 12 pearls Ami could to nothing also than pearls. But Christ hoisted Tho Gates of Pardon in Bis own blood and Tho Murks of eight augurs mud two thumbs Are of each Gate Aud Asho lifted Tho Gate it loaned ugh just his forehead and took from it a Crimson impress and All those Gates Are deeply dyed and Isaiah was right when to spoke of those Gates Gates of Carbuncle. Sufle ring for others. What in Odd thing it is think some this idea of vicarious suffering or suffering for others. Not at Ull. Tho world bus seen vicarious suffering millions of times before Christ Camo and demonstrated it on a Scalo that eclipsed All t hut went before mid All that shall come Futor. Rachel lived ouly Long enough after the birth of her son to give him a name. In faint whisper Sho said Quot cell him Ben oui a which Means a son of my pain a mud All modern travellers on to Road from Jerusalem to Bethel uncover their Heads and stand reverently at Tho Tomb of Rachel who died for her boy. But in Ull Ages Bow Many mothers die for their children nud in Many cases grown up children who by Roche Lucy Stab Clear through to Mother s heart. Suffering for others Why Tho world is full of it. Quot jump in said the Engineer to Tho fireman on Tho locomotive. A Louo of us is enough to die. Jump i Quot and so Tho in Ginger died at his Post trying to 6ave Tho train. When this summer Tho two Tornius crashed into each other near Atlantic City among Tho 47 who lost to boil lives Tho Engineer was found dead with Ono hand on Tho throttle of Tho locomotive Aud Tho other on Tho Brake. Aye Thero Are hundreds Here today suffering for others. Yon know and god knows that it is vicarious sacrifice. But on our Limestone Hill about twice Tho height of this cd Orch five minutes walk from Tho Gates of Jura Salem was the Sublime st Case of suffering for others that Tho world Ever saw or Ever will see. Christ Tho victim human Aud satanic malevolence Tho executioner Tho whole human race having an overwhelming interest in the spectacle. To open a Wuy for us Banful men nud sinful women into glorious Pardon and High Hope and eternal exaltation Christ with hand dripping with the Rush of opened arteries swung Back Tho Gate and behold i it is a red Gate a Gate of deepest Hue a Gate of Carbuncle. What is True in spirituals is True in temporal. There Are Young men and older men who Hope through the right settlement of this acrid controversy Between Silver und Gold or the bimetallic quarrel that it will become easy to Nike a living. That time will Nover come. It never bus been easy to Mako a living. The men who have it very easy now went through hardships and self denials to Young men would never consent. A Sui Iii Stiney get it by inheritance you cannot mention 20 men who love come to honorable Fortuso Tomt did not fight their Way Inch by Inch and ugh Insl fearful Odds thut Waguiu und Guin almost destroyed them. For some Good reason god 1ms arranged it for Ull the centuries Tomt the ouly Way for Mast people to get a livelihood for themselves and their families is with both hands mud Ull to Allied forces of body mind mud soul to push Buck mud push Dpi a the red Pate thu Pate of cur Banc la. For Tho Benefit of All Young men if i bad the time i would Call the ill of Trio Serbo overcame obstacle. How Many of the mighty men who wet Ono Way of in Eun Sylvania Avenue mud reached Tho United states Senate or walked Tho other Way of Pennsylvania Avenue and reached the White House did not love to climb Over political obloquy not one. How much scorn Aud scoff and brutal attack did Horace Tuuu endure Between the Tiquio when to first began to fight fur it better common school system in Massachusetts und Tho Day when a statue Julienor of him was placed on the Steps of Tho Stuto House overlooking Tho commons read Tho biography of Robert Hull to Baptist preacher who though i10 Ltd been pronounced a dunce it school lived to thrill Tho world with Bis Christian eloquence nud of George Peabody who never owned a Carriage mud denied himself All luxuries Tomt he might Liilo living Anil after death through last will and testament devote his uncounted millions to Tho education of Tho poor people in England mud America and of Bishop James who in boyhood worked his passage from Ireland to America and became the Joy of methodism and n Blessing to Tho Raco. Go to Tho biographical Alcove in City Stato or but Ioune Library and find it least every other Book in illustration of Over Cuoio obstacle und of that bad to be forced open. Us aug a a tin. What is True of individuals is Truo of nations. Was it u mild Spring to Ruig when the Pilgrim fathers lauded of Plymouth Rock and did Thoy come in a gilded Ynelia Gay streamers fit aug no.

It did not Tuke much Ink to sign Tho declaration of Independence but it took a terrific amount of blood to maintain it. It was an awful into of opposition that the men and women nud Trio women As much As Tho men pushed Hack. It was a Gate of self sacrifice. It was a Gate of he cod. It was a Guto of Carbuncle Ltd letter djs. To Aro not indebted to history for our knowledge of the greatest of National crises. Many of us remember it and fathers und mothers now living Hud better keep tolling that Story to their children so that instead of their being dependent upon cold Typo and obliged to say a on such a Page of such a Book you Oun Rand that Quot will they rather to Able to say Quot my father told to so Quot Quot my Mother told to men and women who vividly remember 1801, and 18 12, and 18011, and 1804, to yourselves the historians telling it not with Pon but with living Tongue and voice nud gesture. That id the great use of memorial decoration Day for the Cella lilies 011 the Bravo tops soon become breathless of perfume und in a week turn to dust like unto that which lies Lien nth them. But Tho Story of Courno and self sacrifice Aud patriotism told on platforms and in Heus holds mud by Tho Roadside and in churches und in cemeteries by that a Uuno recital will to kept fresh in the memory of generations As Long As our american Are worthy of preservation. Long Futor you Aro dead your childred will be Able to say with Tho psalmist. Quot to have heard with our ears o god on fathers Havo told us what work thou didst in their Days in the times of but want a Tiro it wus. Four years of homesickness. Four years of brotherly nud sisterly estrangement. Four years of martyrdom. Four years of massacre. Put them in u Long Lino the conflagration of cities nud see them Light up a whole routine it. Put them in Long rows the hospitals making a vast Metropolis of pain and paroxysm. Gather them in one vast assemblage the millions of bereft from to st. In Bronco to the Gulf and from the at until to Tho Pacific beaches. Pat the tears into lakes and Tho blood into Rivers Aud Tho shrieks into whirlwinds. During those four years Ninny Good and Wise men at the North and South saw nothing ahead but annihilation. With such a National debt we could never meet our obligations. With such mortal antipathies Northern and Southern men could never come into Umily. Representatives of Louisiana Aud Georgia und the Cero Linns could never again bit Side by Side with the representatives of Maine Massachusetts and new York at the National capital. Lord John Russell had declared that to were a a Bubble bursting nationality a and it had Home True. The nations of Europe had gathered with very resigned spirit at Tho funeral of cur american Republic. They had tolled Tho Bells on parliaments and Reich songs Aud lowered their flags it half Mast and even the lion on the other Side of Tho sea Bud whined for the dead Eagle on this Side. Tho deep grave had been dog god beside Babylon and Thebes and Tyro Gnu other Uruu no Loiis of Tho Post our Deuil Republic was to to buried.

This country lius been for the most part of its history puss Jug through crises and after Euch crisis was hotter off Almu before it entered it and now to Are at another crisis. We Aro told on Ono hand that if Gold in to Pensa Standard Aud Silver is not elevated Confidence will be restored und this nation will Rise triumphant from ail Tho financial misfortunes Tomt have been Allio thug us. Of the other hand to Aro told thut if Tho free coinage of Silver is allowed All Tho wheels of business will revolve Tho poor Man will Havo a butter of once mid nil our industries will begin to hum and your. During Tho lust six presidential Electious i have been urged to enter the political Orang but i never Bavo Aud never will turn the pulpit in which i preach into a political stump. Every minister must do us to feels called to do and i will not criticise him forgoing what to considers his duty but All to political harangues from pulpits from now until Tho so of november will not in All Tho United states change Ono vote but will Leuvoy Many ears stopped against anything but such clergy Mon my utter Tho rest of their lives. As a general Rule the Luy Neu of churches understand politics better than to clergy a cause they thu laymen study politics More than Tho clergy and Bavo better Opportunity of being intelligent 0 1 those subjects. But Good morals honesty loyalty Christian patriotism and the ton commandments these to must preach. God says distinctly in the Bible Quot the Silver and Tho Gold Are mine Quot and to will bottle the controversy Between those two metals. If Ever this country needed the divine Rescue it needs it now. Nover within my memory Hugo so Many people literally starved to death As in the Post Fow Montha Honvo Yon uoti oed in the newspapers How Many men and women Here Aud there Bovo been found dead the Post Morton examination stating that the cause of Douth was hunger there is not a Day that to do not Bear the crash of som Graat commercial establishment nud As a consequence Many people Uro thrown out of employment among what we considered comfortable Homes Havo come privation and close calculation and an Economy thut kills. Millions of people who say nothing about it Are at this moment at their wits end. Thoro Aro millions of people who do not want Charity but want work. Tho cry has gone up to the curs of Tho Quot lord of Sabboth Quot and the prayer will to heard and Relief will come. If we have nothing better to depend of than american politics Relief will Nevor come. Whoever is elected to the presidency to wheels of government turn so slowly Aud a caucus in yonder Whito building on Tho Hill May tie Tho hands of any president. Now though to who live in the District of Columbia cannot vote to con Pray and my prayer Doy nud night Shull to Quot of god hear Tho cry of the souls from under Tho altar thou who has brought Tho wheat and Corn of this season to sue ii magnitude of Supply give food to Man and beast. Thou who Hadst Dot a hero to Lay by head pity the shelter less. Thou who has brought to Perfec Tiou Tho Cotton of the South and the flax fifty years ago. Who could imagine that this should be the place where in eighteen ninety three that White a world wonder of Arch and dome should Shadow the nations polychrome. Here at the Kair was the Price conferred on Ayer s pills by the world preferred. Chicago like. They a record show since they Al Rcd go years age. Ayers cathartic pills have from the time of their preparation been a continuous Success with the Public. And that Means that Ayer s pills accomplish what is promised for them they cure where others fail. It was fitting therefore that the world wide popularity of these pills should be recognized by the worlds pair medal of 1893 a a fact which emphasizes the record 50 years of cures.

It is a Gate Mado out of empty flour barrels and cold fire grates Aud worn out apparel Aud cheerless Homos and Sumodi catch sickness and Ghast Liness and horror. It is a Goto of struggle. A Gate of penury. A Gato of want. A Gate of disappointment. A Rod Gate or what Isaiah would Havo called a Gato of car Bun coca a Ulfo of struggle. Now us i have already suggested As Thero Are obstacles in All our paths to will to happier if to consent to Havo our life a struggle. I do not know any our to whom it is not a struggle. Louis Xiv thought to had everything fixed just right Ana fixed to stay and so to had the great clock at Bordeaux mud. The hours of that clock were struck by figures in Bronze representing Tho Kings of Europe Aud it a certain Limo of Day William Iii of England and other Kings were made to. Come out add Bow to Louis Xiv. But to Dock got out of order one Day and just Tho opposite of what was expected occurred As Tho clock struck u certain hour Louis Xiv was thrown to the feet of William ii and so the clock of destiny brings Many surprises mud those go Down that you expected to stand mud it the foot of disaster most regal conditions Tumble. In All styles of life there come disappointment Aud struggle. Oral has for Somo Good reason arranged it so. If it is not poverty it is sickness. If it is Dot sickness it is persecution. If it is not peso Cytlou. It is contest with some evil appetite. If it is not Somo evil appetite it is Bercov clout. If it is not one tiling it is another. Do not get soured mud Cross and think your Case is Peculiar. You Aro just Liko the rest of us. You will Lyvo to take the bitter draft whether it be handed to you in Golden Calico or Powter Mug.

If our life were not a struggle we would Nevor consent to get out of this world Aud we would Wadt to Ebay Here and so Block up the Way of Trio advancing generations.

Let that Grace to strengthened in Tho Royal gymnasium of obstacle and opposition and by Trio help of god Hui us overcome our own hindrances mud Wor Ruments let us go Forth to help others whose struggle is greater than our own. A store. A Friend told me Tho other Day of a Shoemaker in a russian City whose Bench was in the basement of a building mud so fur underground that to coaids see ouly Tho feet of those who went by in the sidewalk. Scutch on his Bench be often looked no und there went the Swift and skipping feet of children and then Tho slow and uniform step of Tho aged and then feet with shoes old and worn out and thou crippled feet and to resolved he would do a kindness to each our who needed it. So when Tho foot with the old and worn out shoo Vuu Nesing be would bail it and make for it a comfortable covering for to bad Tho Hammer und the pegs and the shoe lasts Aud Tho Lap Stone and the Leuber to do it. And when to sow Tho invalid foot pass he would bail it and go out and offer Medicine Aud Crutch Aud helpfulness. Aud when he sow the aged foot pass he Hui cd it und told the old Man of heaven where be would be Voung again. When he saw Tho foot of childhood pass in the sidewalk he Wonlu go out with Good advice and a laugh that seemed like an Echo of Tho child s laugh. Well time went on and As the Shoemaker s wants were very few he worked but Little for himself and most of the time for others and in the Long evenings when to could not so Well see Tho feet passing of Tho sidewalk he would make shoes of Ull 6izes and stud them of a shelf ready for feet thut would pass in thou time. Of course of Tho years went of under this process Trio Shoemaker Befumo More and More Christian until one a a he said to himself a i wish among Oso feet passing up there of the sidewalk i could Seo Tho feet of Tho dear Christ passing. Of if i could ouly see his feet go by i would know them because they arc scarred feet a that night the Shoemaker dreamed Ami in the dream he saw the glorious Christ mud to said Quot of Christ 1 have been waiting for thee to pass it i the sidewalk und i Havo seen lame feet Aud wounded feet and aged feet and poor fret but in vain have i looked for thy spurred and Christ sad to the Shoemaker Quot Man i did pats of the sidewalk and you did see my feet and you did come out Aud Luil me und bless me and help me. You thought it was Tho foot of a pot old Man that went shuffling by thut was my foot you thought it was the Foi l of a Soldier thut went limping past that was my foot. Yon thought Flint Slie Oleas foot was the foot of a beggar that was my foot. The shot Quot to clothing the Medicine the cheering words thut Yon gave to them you gave to your lord. A inasmuch Asye bared it no it unto one of Tho least of these be have done it Auto me.1 a my hearers with the Humlin spirit of that russian Mechanic let us go Forth and help others having shoved Back Tho Carbuncle gute for yourself to pass in and pass on add puss up lend a hand to others that they also May get through Tho red Gate and pass in and pass on Imd pass up.
