Text 1 a humid Xiv 14, Quot and Samuel said what Nic auth then this id eating of the sheep ill Inion cars and Lului lowing of the oxen which i hear Quot Tho amal elites thought they had conquered god and that he would not carry into execution his threats against them. They Hud murdered Tho israelite in Battle and out of Battle and left no outrage untried. For 490 years this Hail i see o going on and they Sav a god either dare not punish us or lie has forgotten to do let. Us see. Samuel gods Prophet tolls Saul o go Down Anil slay All the final kites not leaving one of them alive also to destroy All the beasts in their Possession of sheep Camel Aud ass. Lark i hear Tho tread of 210,000 men with Moust Mua Saul at re intr head ablaze with Armor his shield dangling at his Side holding in his hand a Spear at the waving of which the great Host marched or halted. I see smoke Curling against Tho sky. Now there is a thick a Load of it Aud now 1 see Tho whole City rising in a Chariot of Smoko behind steeds of tire. It is Saul that set the City a Daze. Thu am lekites and israelite meet the trumpets of Buttle blow peal on peal Ami them is a death hash. Then there is a signal waved swords Cut Aud Hack javelins ring on Shields arms fall from trunks and Heads Roll into the dust. Gash after Gash the frenzied Yll. The gurgling of throttled throats the cry of pain the laugh of revenge the curse hissed Between clinched Teeth an army s death groan. Stacks of dead on All sides with Eves and a truths yet grinning vengeance. Huzzah for the israelite two Hundred mud ten thousand men wave their Pinnies mid clap their Shields for the lord god hath Given them the Victory. Lain and la a Rrt. Yet that victorious army of. Israel is conquered by sheep and oxen. God through the Prophet Samuel told Saul to slay All Tho am lekites and to slay All Tho beasts in their Possession but Saul thinking that lie knows More than god saves agag the maj Kilish King and five drove of sheep and a Herd id oxen that lie cannot Bear to kill. Saul drives the sheep and oxen Down toward Home. has to idea that Samuel the Prophet will find out that lie Lias saved these sheep and oxen for himself. Samuel comes and asks Saul the news front the Buttle. Saul puts pm a solemn face for there is no one who Cap look menu solemn than your pc inc hypocrite and he pays Quot i have fulfilled tie command of the Samuel listens and to hears Tho drove of sheep a Little Way hit. Saul Hud no idea that the Prophet s car would he so acute. Samuel says to Saul Quot if you have done As god told Vou Ami slain nil the am lekites and Alt Quot the beasts in to in Possession what Macau cab the blunting of the sheep in Nibuo ears and the lowing of Tho oxen that i hear Quot a one would have thought that blushes would have consumed the Cheek of Saul. he says Tho army not himself of course hut the army had saved the sheep Atid oxen for sacrifice Aud then they thought it would by too bad anyhow to kill agag the anal Evitish King. Samuel takes the sword and to slashes agag to pieces and to limit to takes the skirt of Iii coat itt True Oriental style and rends it in Twain us much As to say Quot you Saul just like that shall be torn away from your Empire Aurl thru away from your in other words let All the nations of the i Ortli hear Tho Story that Saul by disobeying god Wou a Hock of sheep hut lost a kingdom. I learn from this subject Tomt god will expose hypocrisy. Here soul pretends he has fulfilled the divine commission or slaying All the beasts belonging to thou am lekites and yet at the very moment to is telling the Story Ami practising the delusion the secret comes out Aud Tho sheep bleat and the oxen Bellow. A hypocrite is one who pretends to to what to is not or to do but lie does not. Saul was Only a Typo of a class. Tho modern hypocrite looks awfully solemn whines when lie prays and during his Public Devotion shows a great Deal of the Whites of his eyes. never laughs or ii he does laugh lie seems sorry for it afterwards As though he had committed Soto Greet indiscretion. The first time he gets a Chuce to prays 20 minutes in Public and when lie exhorts to seems to imply that All the race tire sinners with Oue exception his modesty forbidding the stating who that Otto is. There Are a great Many churches that have two or three Eccl Sci a tical Uriah beeps. Tho up Crite. When the Fox begins to Pray Lookout for your chickens. The More genuine religion a Man has Tho More comfortable he will be but Yon May know a religious impostor by the fact that he prides himself on being uncomfortable. A Man of that kind is of immense damage to Tho Church of Christ. A ship May outside a Hundred storms and vet a handful of Worms in Tho planks May sink it to the Bottom. The Church of god is not so much in danger of the a Cloues of trouble and persecution that come upon it As of the a Crmim of hypocrisy that infest it. Wolves Are of do danger to the fold of god us less they look like sheep. Arnold was of More do Mug to Tho army than Cornwallis Ami his hosts. Of we cannot deceive god with a Church certificate he secs a child Tho end Tail As Well As before the curtain. secs everything inside out. A Man May through policy hide his real character but god will after awhile tear Topcu the whited sepulchre Ami expose the putrefaction. Sunday faces Cauuet save him. Long prayers cannot save him. Psalm singing Aud churchgoing cannot save him. God will expose him just As thoroughly As though he branded upon his forehead the word he May think he 1ms been successful in the deception hut at the most unfortunate moment of in jew. Oho of the cruel Bishops of Olden Timo was going to excommunicate Ono of thu martyrs and to began in Tho form Quot in the name of god Quot i top Quot says Tho Martyr. Quot Don t say a in the name of god a a yet How Many outrages Aro practice under thu garb of religion and Sanctity. When j in synods and conferences ministers of the gospel Are about to say something i brotherly and unkind Obront a member they almost always begin by being tremendously pious tint Vou out of their assault corresponding to the heavenly flavor of Tho prelude. Standing there you would think they were ready to go right up into glory and that nothing kept them Down but the weight of their Mots and overcoat when suddenly Tho sheep bloat and the oxen Bellow. . Of my dear friends let us Cal Pivato simplicity of Christian character Jesus Christ said a a unless you become As this Little child you cannot enter the kingdom of we May play hypocrite successfully now but the lord god will after awhile expose our True character. You must know thu incident mentioned in Tho history of Ottn Cus who was asked to Kneel ill Tho presence of Rait Dol plus i and when before him he refused to do it hut after awhile he agreed to come in private when there was nobody ill the King s tent and Licu lie would Kneel Down him and worship but the servants of the King had arranged it so that by drawing a Cord the tent would suddenly drop. Ott acas ult or awhile Cate in and supposing he was in entire privacy Knelt before Taa Alolphus. The servants pulled Tho Cord the tent dropped and two armies surrounding looked Down on Ott acas kneeling before Udolphus. If we Are really kneeling to the world while we profess to he lowly subjects of Jesus Christ Tho tent Lias already dropped and All thu hosts of heaven Are gazing upon our he Poeris. God s universe is a very Public place mud you cannot hide hypocrisy in it. Going out into a world of delusion and Sham pretend to be no More than you really Are if you have the Grace of god. Profess it profess no More than you have. But i want the world to know that where there is one hypocrite in the Church there Are 501 outside of it for thu reason that the Field is larger. There arc men in All circles who will Bow before you and who Are obsequious in your presence and talk flattering by but who All the while in your conversation Are digging for bait Aud Angling for imperfections. In your presence they imply that they Are everything Friendly but after awhile you find they have thu fierceness of a Catamount the shyness of a Tsuuko and the spite of a Devil. God will expose such. Tin gun they Load will Hurst in their own hands the lies they Tell Wilt break their own Teeth Aud it the very moment they think they have been successful in deceiving you and dec iving the would the sheep will Blent Aud the oxen will Bellow. I . I learn further from this subject How natural it is to try to put off our Situ on other people. Saul was charged with disobeying god. Tho Nian says it Wos not he he did not save Tho sheep Tho army did it trying to throw it off of the shoulders of other people. Human nature is to e same in All Ages. Adam confronted with his sin said Quot Tho woman tempted me Aud i did and the woman charged it upon Tho Serpent Aud if thu Serpent could Bubo spoken it would have charged it upon the Devil. I suppose that the Reul state of the Case was that eve was eating the Apple Aud Tomt Adam saw it and begged Ulm coaxed until he got a piece of it. I suppose that Adam was just As much to blame As eve was. You cannot throw off the responsibility of any sin upon the shoulders of other people. Here is a Young Man who says Quot i know i am doing wrong but i have not Hud any Chance. 1 had a Fatlich who despised god and a Mother who was a disciple of godless fashion. I am not to blame for my sins it is my bringing a no that Young Man has been out in the world Long enough to see what is right and to see what is wrong and in the great Day of eternity he cannot throw his sins upon his father or Mother but will have to stand for himself Aud answer before god. Yon have had a conscience you Havo had a Bible and the influence of Tho holy spirit. Stand for yourself or fall for yourself. Hero is a business Mau. says �?�1 know i done to do exactly right in Trade but All Tho dry goods men do it Aud All the hardware men do this and 1 am not you cannot throw off your sin upon the shoulders of other merchants. God will hold you responsible for Liat you do and them responsible for what they do. I Wunt to quote one passage of scripture fur you �?1 think it is in proverbs Quot if thou be Wise thou shall to Wise for thyself Bat if thou acc most thou alone Shalt Bear All or none. I learn fur thu r from this subject what god meant in extermination soul was told to slay All the am lekites and the beasts in their Possession. saves agag the Amale Kite Sciug Aud some of the sheep and Cleu. God chastises hint for it. Gad likes nothing done by halves. God will nut stay in lbs soul that is half his Ami half the Devil s. There May tic More sins in oar soul Titan there were am lekites. We most kill them. Woe unto us if we spare agag. Here is a Christian. says Quot i will drive out All Tho am lekites of s u from my heart. Hero is jealousy Down goes that Amale Kite. Here is Down goes that Amale Kite a and what Slaughter lie makes among his Sius striking right Aud left what is that out yonder lifting up Hisle Enid it is Agaga iti world Liness. It is an old sin he Cauuet Bear to strike Down. It is a Darling transgression he cannot afford to sacrifice. Of my Brethren i Appeal for entire consecration. Some of the presbyterians Call it the a higher the methodists i believe cull it i do not care what you Call it a without holiness to Man shall see Tho lord. I know men who arc living with their soul in perpetual communion with Christ and Day by Day Are walking within sign of heaven. How do i know they Tell me so. I Lelieve them. They would not lie about it. Why cannot we All have this consecration Why slay some of the Sius in our soul and leave others to bleat Aud Bellow for our exposure Aud condemnation Christ will a or in the same House with a nil. X of must tvo up agag or give up Christ. Jesus says. A fall of that heart or none. A Saul slew the poorest of the sheep Aud Tho meanest of Tho oxen Aud kept set to of the finest and the fattest and there arc christians who Havo Luiu Tho most unpopular of their transgressions und saved those which Are most respectable. It will not do. Eternal War against All the ample kites to mercy for agag i learn further from this subject that it is vain to try to defraud god. Hero Saul thought he had cheated god out of those sheep Aud oxen but he lost Iris Crown to lost his Empire. You Cauuet cheat god out of a single cent. Hero is a Man who has made �10,000 in fraud. Before he Dies every Dollar of it will to gone or it will give him violent us rest. Here is a Christian who Lias been largely prospered. has not Given to god Tho proportion that is due in charities Aud Benevolence. God comes to Tho Rcck Oaing Aud he takes it All Awny from you. How often it has been that Christian ecu Havo had a Large estate Aud it is Gnu. Tho lord god Ciuuto into the counting room mud said a i have allowed you to have All this property for 10, 15 or 20 years and you have not clone Justice to my poor children. When Tho beggar called Pou you you Hon led him off your Steps when my suffering children appealed to you for help you Iliad to mercy. I Only asked for so much or so Emch but you did not give it to me Aud now i will take it All. A Tho Safe course. God uses of us one seventh of our time in the Way of Sabbath. Do you suppose to cuu get an hour of that time successfully away from its True object no no. God has demanded one seventh of your time. If you take one hour of that Timo thut is to to devoted to gods service Aud instead of keeping his Sabbath use it for Tho purpose of writing up your accounts or making worldly gains god will got that hour from you ill some unexpected Way. God says to Jonah Quot you go to he says _ a no i won t. Ill go to to starts for tars Tish. The sea raves the winds blow and Tho ship rocks. Conte be whales and Tuko this passenger for tar Shilt no Mau Ever gets to Tarshish whom god tells to go to Nineveh. Tho sea would not carry him it is gods sea. The winds would not waft him they uru god s winds. Let a Mau attempt to do that which god forbids him to do or to go into a place where god tells him not to go the natural world us Well As god is against him. The lightnings Are ready to strike him the fires to Burn him the Sun to smite him the Waters to drown him Aud the Earth to Swallow him. Those whose princely Robes Are Woven out of Heartstrings those whose Lino houses Are built out of skulls those whose springing four tails ure the tears of oppressed Vatious Havo they successfully cheated god the last Day will demonstrate. It will la found out on thut Day that god vindicated not Only his goodness Aud his mercy but his Power to take Caro of his own rights Aud Tho rights of his Church Aud Tho lights of his oppressed children. Come be martyred dead awake Aud come up from the due Genus where folded darkness hearted you and the chains like cankers peeled Loose Tho skin Aud wore off the flesh and rattled of the narrow less boxes. Come be martyred dead from the stakes where Yon were burned where the Arm uplifted for mercy fell into the ashes Aud the cry of paid was drowned in the snapping of the flame Aud the howling of the mob from valleys of Pic Smout and Smithfield Market and London Tower mud the Highlands of Scotland. Gather in great procession Aud together clap your bouy bands mud together stamp your moldy feet and let the Chius that bound you to due Genus All Clark it ouch Aud gather Ull the flames that buried Yon in Oue uplifted Arm of fire Aud plead for a judgment. Gather All the tears to Ever wept into a Lake Aud gather All the sighs be Ever breathed into a tempest until the heaven piercing Chain Clank Aud the tempest sigh Aud the Thunder groan announce to Earth Aud hell and heaven a judgment. Of of that Day god will vindicate his own cause and vindicate the canse of the troubled and the oppressed it. Will be see in that Day that though we May have robbed our Fellows we never have successfully robbed god. My Christian friends As you go out into the world exhibit us Topcu hearted Christian frankness. Do not to hypocritical in anything. You ure never Safe if you arc. At Tho most Inopportune moment the sheep will bleat mud the oxen Bellow. Drive out the last Amale Kice it sati Iron your Sam. Aae no mercy a agag.

Taking a course of Ayers pills the system is set in Good working order and a Man begins to feel that life is Worth living. who has become the gradual prey of constipation does not realize the friction under which he labors until the Burden is lifted from him.

The first of these is the Only examination that is the same for ail for the Man who will have difficulty in scraping n pass degree Aud for the future Winner of thu Hertford or Ireland the Blue ribbons of Oxford scholarship. Smalls or an accepted substitute for it must be passed by every Oue alike and i is merely iut Udod to decide a Mah s fitness or unfitness for a University career of any kind. But immediately after Smalls Mitt s paths begin to diverge. In moderation the Ordinary undergraduate takes a pass examination but Tho Able Man trims at honors either in greek or latin literature or in mathematics. The former examination called Honor classical moderation affords a better test of scholarship and is a Toro valuable qualification for men who adopt teaching As a profession than any other at Oxford.

The total absence of All even incidental reference among classic authors to Oil painting May be Cousin dared conclusive evidence that tie nucleus Wero unacquainted with Tho Art. It is known however from the frequent allusions to them that during Throe centuries antecedent to the technical perfection displayed in the works of the Brothers Eyck there were what we May consider tentative efforts in Oil painting. And so distinct is Tho evidence of the porn Chico of Oil painting Long before the beginning of the fifteenth Century when Tho Eyck flourished that Tho account of their invention or discovery by Passori tie italian big Supher of artist seven understood restrict idly has been denied altogether. It appears however that Oil painting was at first Only employed for colouring standards banners and Pennon with heraldic devices and for the subordinate complementary and decorative parts of pictures such for instance As draperies and accessories. And no example of figures or pictures in the modern sense of Tho term entirely executed in Oil before tie time of Tho eyes can to proved to. Exist nor is there a distinct record of Sulci works buying been executed.
