I thanking you for your kind favors of the past and soliciting a continuance of the same we Are respectfully yours my a in a asu�3 a Parksley a. A i c Ham try in handwriting a letter from Home Namh written in the Book of eternal in few Ink undo from the Calvary sacrifice. Washington oct.-4.�?we scud out this one of the most unique sermons or. To Emuge Ever preached. It is of novel As wide sweeping and practical. His subject is a divine Chiron Rizphy Quot Tho text being Luke a 20, a rejoice because your dimes Uro written in Chiro mruphy or the Art of handwriting like the science of acoustics is in very unsatisfactory state. While you Tiki Ting a Church and told by some architects that the voice would not to heard in a building shaped Liko that proposed i came in much anxiety to thin City and consulted with professor Joseph Henry of the smithsonian institution about the Law of acoustics. To snid Quot go ahead and build your Church in the Shunpo proposed and i think it will he All right i have studied the Laws of sound perhaps More than any Man of my time and i Havo Como so fur As this two auditoriums May seem to be exactly Aliko and in our to acoustics May to Good Aud in the other in the same unsatisfactory stage is Chir Graphy although Many declare they have reduced it Toas Ienco. There Are those who say they can read character by handwriting. It is said that the Way our writes the hater Quot i Quot decides his egotism or modesty and the Way one writes the letter a a of decides the height and depth of his emotions. It is declared a cramped hand Means a cramped nature and an easy haul a facile and Liberal spirit. But if there to anything in this science Thoro must be some rules not yet announced for some of the boldest Anil most us Gres Sivo men have a delicate and Small penmanship while some of the most timid sign their names with the height and Width and scope of the name John Hancock on the immortal document. Some of the cleanest in person and thought present their blotted and spattered Page and some of the roughest put before us nil immaculate Chir Graphy. Not our character but the copy Pinto set before is in our Schoolboy Day decides the general Stylo of our Haud writing. So also there is n fashion in penmanship and for one decade the letters Are exaggerated Anil in the next Minifield now erect and now slant now heavy and now Fine. An autograph album is always a Surprise and you find Tho penmanship contradicts the character of Tho writers. But while Tho Chir Graphy of the Earth is Uncertain our blessed lord in our text presents the Chiron Rizphy celestial. When addressing the 70 disciples standing before him to said a rejoice because your names arc written in to look of life. Of Courso the Bible for the most part when speaking of Tho heavenly world Speaks figuratively while talking about Book and about trumpets and about wings Aud about Gates and about go id u pavements and about Orchards with 12 crops of fruit our crop each month and about the White horses of heaven s cavalry. But we do Well to follow out these inspired Mita phots und reap from them courage and Sublime expectation Aud Consolation und Victory. We Are told that in the heavenly Library there is a Book of life. Perhaps there Are Many volumes in it. When to say a Bookwo Macau All written by Tho author on that subject i cannot Tell Liow Large those heavenly volumes Are nor the splendor of their binding nor Tho number of their Pongos nor whether they Are pictorial fixed with Somo exciting scenes of this world. I Only know that Tho words have not been impressed by Type bet written ont by some hand and that Ull those who Liko Tho 70 disciples to whom the text was spoken repent and Trust Tho lord for their eternal salvation surely Havo their numbs written in heaven. It May not to Tho same name that to carried on Earth. To May through Tho Incon Sider atness of parents have u name that is uncouth or that was afterwards dishonoured by our after whom to were called. I do not know Eliut the 70 entrances of the names of the 70 disciples co respond with Tho record in Tho genealogical Tobolo. It May not be Tho name by which to were called on Earth but it will to Tho name by which heaven will know us and we will Havo it no Nonu cd to us As to pass in and to will know it so certainly that to will not Havo to be called twice by it a in Tho Biblo times Tho lord called some people twice by name a Saul Saul a a Samuel Samuel Quot a Martha Martha Quot who you Como up and look for your Nonio in Tho mighty tomes of of equity and you Are so Happy As Tofi Uil it there you will notice that Tho penmanship is Christ a and that Tho letters were written with a trembling baud not trembling with old age for he had ouly passed to lire decades when he expired. It was soon after Tho thirtieth anniversary of his birthday. Look Over All the business accounts you kept or the letters you wrote at 30 years of age and if you were ordinarily Strong Aud Well then there was no tremor in the Chir Graphy. Why to tremor in Tho Haud that wrote your name in heaven of it was a compression of More troubles than Over smote any ode else and All of them troubles assumed for others. Christ was prematurely old. To had been exposed to All the Weathers of palest due. A to bad slept out of doors a now in the nig Dow and now in the tempest he Hai been soaked in the surf of Lake Galileo pillows for others but be and not Here to Lay hi6 head. Hungry be co not even get a Fig on which to breakfast or have you missed the pathos of that verse a in the morning As he returned unto the City he hungered and when he saw a Fig tree in the Way he came to it and found nothing thereon Quot of he was a hungry Christ. And nothing makes the band tremble worse than hunger for it pulls upon the stomach and the stomach pulls upon the brain and the brain pulls upon the nerves and the agitated nerves make the band quake. On Tho top of All this exasperation came abuse. What sober Man Ever wanted to be called a drunkard but Christ was called one. What respecter of the lords Day wants to to called a Sabbath Brenker but he was called one. What Man careful of the company he keeps wants to to outed Tho Assoc into of profligate but he Wasso a tilted. We Arroyal Man wants to to charged with treason but to was can Rcd with it. What Man of Devon speech wants to be called a Blasphemer Bat to was to tonnes what Man of self respect Wau is to he struck in Tho Mouth but that is where they struck him. Or to to Tho victim of Tho vilest expectoration but under that to stooped. Of to was a worn ont Christl that is Tho reason to died so soon upon the Cross. Many victims of crucifixion lived Day after Day upon the Cross hut Christ was in thu courtroom at 12 of clock of Norn and he had expired at 8 o clock in Tho afternoon of Tho same Day. Subtracting from Tho three hours Between 12 and 8 of clock Tho Tirao taken to travel from Tho courtroom to the place of execution and the time that must Havo been taken in getting ready for Tho tragedy there could not Havo been much More than two hours left. Why did Christ live Only two hours upon Tho Cross when others had lived 48 hours All he was worn out before to got there i and Yon wonder of child of god that looking into Tho volumes of heaven for your name you find it was written with a trembling penmanship trembling with every letter of your Numo if it to your earthly Hume or trembling with every letter of your heavenly name if that 1� different Aud More euphonious. That will not a Tho first time you saw Tho Mark of a quiver aug Peu for did you not of Man years ago see your Nanio so written on the Back of a letter nud you opened in. Saying Quot Why Here is a letter from Mother Quot or Quot hero is a letter from father Quot mid after you opened it you found All the words because of old age were traced irregularly and Uncertain so that you coaids hardly read it at All but after much study you made it out a letter from Home telling Yon How much they missed you and How much they prayed for you and How much they wanted to see Yon and if it might nor he on Earth that so it might to in the world where there Are in partings. Yes your name is written in heaven if written at All with trembling Chir Graphy. Some autographs. Again in examination of your name in Tho heavenly archives if you find it there at All you will find it written with a bold hand. You have seen Many a signature that a Venuso of sickness or old Ngo had a tremor in it yet it was As bold As the Mau who wrote it. Many a order written of Tho Battlefield and Umid the Linn Der of Tho cannonade has had Ovid acc of excite Cut in every word and every letter Anil in the Speed with which it was folded and handed to Tho officer Asho put his foot in Tho Swift stirrups Aud yet notwithstanding his trembling hand gives n boldness of order that shows itself in every word written. Yon do not need to be told that a trembling hand docs not always mean a cowardly hand. It was with a very trembling hand Charles Carroll of Carrollton signed his Nonio to Tho declaration of american Independence but no signer had More courage. And when some one said Quot there arc Montiy Charles Carrolls and la will not be known which one it is Quot he resumed the Pou and wrote Charles Carroll of Carrollton. Trembling hand no sign of timidity the daring and Defiance Saccu in Tho Way your name is written in heaven Uro a Challenge to nil Earth and hell to come of if they can to defeat your ransomed soul. The Way your name is written there is is much is to say Quot i Havo redeemed him. I died for him. I am going to Crown nud Euther Nohim. Nothing shall Ever happen Down in that world where to now lives to defeat my determination to keep him to shelter him to Savo him. By my almighty Grano Lam going to fetch him Here. To May slip and slide but he has got to Como Here. By my omnipotent sword by the combined strength of All heavens principalities and Powers and dominions by the 20,000 chariots of Tho lord almighty i am going to Seo him bold handwriting it is the boldest tiling Ever written to write my name there and your name Tubero. To knows on weaknesses and bad propensities better than to know them ourselves. To knows All the Polly Ohio hosts that arc sworn to Down us if they can. To knows All the temptations that will assail us Between now and the moment of our inst pulsation of Tho heart and yet he dares to write our name there. Boldness nothing at Saragossa or Chalons or Marathon or therm Nylie to equal it. Nothing in the sack of Gnu powder a Biclie one English Soldier carried Nandor Tho blazing artillery of tiie Mohammedans and blew up the Gate of Delhi. Can you not Sec the boldness in the penmanship that bus already written our names there apostle Peter what you think of it and to answers Quot kept by Tho Power of god through Faith into Complete of blessed Christ what Dost thou mean by it Aud he answers Quot Thoy shall never perish. Neither shall any Man Pluck them out of my Quot your numbs Are written in eternal volumes. Again if according to Tho Promise of Tho text you Are permitted to look into the volumes of it fruity and shall see your name there you will find it written in lines in words in letters unmistakable. Some people have come to consider indistinct and almost unreadable penmanship a Mark of Genins and so they affect it because every paragraph that Thomas Chalmers and Dean Stanley and lord Byron and Rufus Choate and other potent men wrote was a Puzzle. Imitators make their penmanship a Puzzle. Alexndre Dumas Days that Plain penmanship is the Brevet of incapacity. Then there Are some who Thror go too much demand upon their energies and through i Lack of time lose Tho capacity of making Tho pen intelligible Aud much of Tho writing of this world is indecipherable. We have seen piles of inexplicable Chir Graphy Aud we ourselves have helped augment the magnitude. We have nol been sure of the Namo signed or Tho sentiment expressed or whether the reply was affirmative or negative. Through indistinct penmanship last wills and testaments have been Defeated widows Anil orphans robbed of their inheritance Railroad trains brought into collision through the dim words of a Telegram put into the baud of a conductor and regiments in this Wiso mistaking their instructions have been sacrificed in Battle. I asked Bishop Cowie in Auckland now zealand the Bishop having been la Many of the wars what Tennyson in Hia ammo rat Joem Thoj a Norge of Tho Light t5rlgaile7 meant by Ilie words a a Homo our and blundered a and Tho Bishop snid that Tho awful carnage at Balaklava was the result of an indistinctly written und wrongly rend military order. A so Muon had but your name onco written in Tho lambs Book of life will be so Unis to Cable that All heaven can read it at the first glance. It will not to taken for the name of Somo other so that in regard to it there so ill come to to Dis in tuition. Not one of Tho millions and billions Anil quadrillion of the finally saved will doubt that it nouns Yon and Only you. Of Tho glorious Tho rapturous certitude of that Entrance on Tho heavenly Roll. Not saved in a promiscuous Way. Not put into n glorified mob. No nol though you onto no Tho worst sinner that was Over saved Anil somebody who know you in this world at Olio time is absolutely abandoned and dissolute should say a i never heard of your conversion and i do not believe you have a right to to hero a you could just laugh n Lyngh of Triumph and turning Over the leaves containing the names of Tho redeemed say a a read it for yourself. That is my name written out la full nud do you not recognize the bund writing no Young scribe of heaven on tired that. No Anonymous writer put it there. Do you not see Tho tremor in the lines do you not also see the boldness of Tho letters is it not As Plain As yonder throne is Plain As yonder Gato is not Tho name unmistakable and Tho handwriting Tho crucified lord wrote it there Tho Day i repented Anil turned. Hear it hear it my Namo is written there there Quot Ria Only written. I Havo sometimes been tempted to think that there will to so Tunny of us in heaven that we will to lost in Tho crowd. No. Each our of us will be As distinctly picked out Anil to cognized As was Abel when to entered from Earth the very first sinner saved and at Tho head of that Long procession of sinners saved in All the centuries. My dear hearers if to onco got there i do not want it left Uncertain As to whether we Are to stay there. After you Aud i get fairly settled there in our heavenly heme to do not want on title proved defective. To do not want to be ejected from the heavenly premises. To do not want Somo Otto to Sunyi Quot this is not your room in Tho House of Many mansions und you Havo on an attire that you ought not to have taken from the heavenly wardrobe and that is not really your Namo on the Hooka if you Hud More carefully examined Tho writing in Tho Register at the Gato Yon would Havo found that Tho name v. As not yours at All but mine. Now. Movo out while i Movo of what wretch Doneas after once worshipping in heavenly temples to be compelled to turn your Back on Tho music and after having joined the society of the blessed to to forced to quit it forever and after having clasped our Long lost Kindred in a Caverly embrace to have another separation what an agony would there Boiu such a Goody to heaven glory be to god on High that our a amps will to so plainly written in those volumes that neither Saint nor Cherub nor seraph nor archangel shall doubt it for one moment for 600 eternities if there were room for so Many. To oldest inhabitant of heaven can read it nud the child that left its Mother s Lap last right for heaven can read it. You will not just look at your name Aud close the Book but you will stand and Soliloquy be and say Quot is it not wonderful that my Namo is there at All How much it Cost my lord to get it Hercl unworthy am i to have it in the same Book with the sons and daughters of martyrdom and with Tho Choice spirits of All time. But there it is Anil so Plain Tho word and so Plain All the letters Quot and you will turn Forward and backward Tho loaves nud see other names there perhaps your father s name and your mothers name and your brother s name Aud your Sisters name Anil your wife a Lauio and apostolic names and Sav Quot i am not surprised that those names Oro Here recorded. They Wero better than i Ever was. But astonishment overwhelming that my name is in this Book Quot Aud turning Buck to the Page of which is inscribed your name you will stand and look tit it until seeing that others Are waiting to examine Tho records with reference to their own names you step Back into the ranks of the redeemed with them to talk Over the wonderment. Indelibly written. Again if you Are so Happy As to find your name in the a of eternity you will find it Writt a glibly. Go up to Tho state departing c in this National capital and Sec the old treaties signed by the rulers fit foreign nations our is and. Other eyes. Our is Are just As Strong As they were fifty years ago when we have cause to use them. But we have less and less cause to Praise ourselves since others do the praising and we Are More than willing for you to see us through other eyes. This is How we look to s. F. Boyce wholesale and retail druggist Duluth Minu who after a Quarter of a Century of observation writes a a i have sold Ayers Sarsaparilla for More than 25 years both it wholesale and retail Aud have never heard anything but words of Praise from my customers not a single complaint has Ever reached me. I believe Ayer 9 Sarsaparilla to be the Best blood purifier that has been introduced to the general this from a Man who has sold thousands of dozens of Ayers Sarsaparilla is Strong testimony. But it ouly echoes popular sentiment the world Over which has a a nothing but words of Praise for Ayers any dont about it Send for Quot cur Obook Quot it Kilts doubts and cures doubters. Address j. C. Atic co., lotto Moss. A just before or Jusi alter the beginning of this Century and Yon will find that Somo of the Docu Niemuth Are so faded ont that Yon can read oui Here and there a word. From Tho paper yellow with age or the Parchment u Mol led before you time has effaced Liuo after line. You Bovo to Gness at the name and perhaps guess wrongly. Old time is represented an carrying a scythe with which he Anta Down the generations but he entries also chemicals with which he eats out whole paragraphs from important documents. We talk about incl info Ink but there is no such thing is indelible Ink. It is Only a question of time the Complete obliteration of All earthly signatures und engrossment. But your name put in the a Caverly record Ull Tho Millici Minms of heaven cannot dim it. After you Havo been so Long in glory that did you not possess imperishable memory you would have forgotten the Day of your Entrance your name on that Page will glow us vividly As of the instant it was traced there by the Finger of Tho great Toner. There will to new generations coming into heaven and a thousand years from now from this or from other planet souls May outer Tho Many mansion d residence and though your name were onco plainly of Tho books suppose it should fade out How could you Provo to Tho newcomers that it had Uver been written there at All Audeli Bucl inca a Blo of being cancelled eternity As helpless As time in any attempt at a Rasure what a re of forcing uplifting thought other records in heaven May give out and will give ont. There Are records there in which the recording Angel writes Down our bins but it is a Book full of blots so that much of the writing there cannot be read or even guessed at. The recording Augel did Tho writing but our Saviour put in flip blots for did be not Promise a Jwill blot out their transgressions Quot and if some one in heaven should remember Somo of on earthly iniquities Aud ask go about them the lord would say Quot of i forgot them i i completely forgot those Hins for i promised a their sins Aud their iniquities will i remember no More a in Tho fires that bum no on world nil Tho safety deposits and All the title deeds and All the Halls of record and All the libraries will disappear worse that when the 200,000 volumes Aud the 700,000 manuscripts of the alexandrian Library went Down under the Torch of Omar and not u Leaf or word will Esopo the flame in that last conflagration which i think will to witnessed by other planets whose inhabitants will exclaim a look there is a world on but there will be Only one conflagration in heaven and that will not destroy but irradiate. I mean the conflagration of splendours that Blaze on the towers and domes and temples Aud thrones Aud rubbed and Diamonde Walls in the Light of Tho Sun that never sets. Indelible of More Light. There is not of Earth nil autograph letter or signature of Christ the Only Timo to wrote ont a word of Earth though to know so Well How to write to wrote with reference to having it soon shuffled out by human foot Tho time that to stooped Down Aud with his Finger wrote on the ground the hypocrisy of Tho Pisa rises. But when he writes your name in Tho heavenly archives As i believe to has or Hope he May it is to stay there from age to age from Cycle to Cycle from Eon to 0011. And so for All you Christian people i do what John g. Whittier the dying poet said to wanted done in Bis Home. Lovely Mau he was i sat with him in u Hay mow a whole summer afternoon Anil heard him toll the Story of his life. Hail for Many years been troubled with i Soumia Anil wus n very poor Sleeper nud i10 always Hail the window curtain of his room up so us to see the first intimation of Sunrise. When he was breathing Bis last in the morning hour in his Home in Tho Massachusetts Village Tho nurse thought that the Light of rising Sun was too Trouf for Linin Aud so called rho window curtain Down. Tho last thing the great Quaker poet did was to wave Bis hand to have Tho curtain up. wanted to depart in the full Gus i of Tho morning. And i thought it might be helpful and inspiring to All Christina souls to Havo More Light about the future and so i pull up the curtain in Tho glorious Suu Riso of my text and say Quot rejoice that your names Are written in bring on your do ologies wave your Palms i shout your victories i pull pall thu curtains of Bright expectations Yea hoist the window itself and let the perfume of to Quot morning glories of the King s Garden Como in Aud Tho music of harps Ull a Tramblo with symphonies and Tho sound of Tho surf of seas dashing to the foot of Tho throne of god and Tho Lamb. In red Ink.
