But Tho Queen Vashti refused to come at Tho King s commandment by his chamberlains therefore wus Tho King very Wroth and his us Ger burned in him. A scone in Tho Falasco. To a tand mid the palaces of Shu Khan. Tho Pinnacles Are Atilomo with the morning Light Tho columns Riso festooned Aud wreathed Tho wealth of empires flashing from Tho grooves the Rollings adorned with images of Bird att beast and scones of prowess and Conquest the Walls Are Hung with Shields and emblazoned until it seems that Tho whole round of splendours is exhausted. Each urch is u mighty leap of architectural achievement Golden stars shining Down on glowing uru Bosque. Hangings of embroidered work in which it Iuglio the blueness of the sky Tho greenness of the grass und Tho whiteness of Tho sea fount. Tapestries Hung on Silver lugs wedding together Tho pillars of m table. Pavilions reaching out in every direction. These for re a tilled with luxuriant couches into which weary limbs sink until All fatigue is submerged. The so for Carousel where Kings drink Down a kingdom it one Swallow. Amazing spectacle i Light of Silver dripping Down Over stairs of Ivory on Shields of Gold floors of stained Marble Sunset red and night Bluck und inlaid with gleaming Pearl Why it seems As if a heavenly vision of amethyst and Jacinth and Topaz on Chryso Prascus had descended and alighted upon shush an. It seems As if a billow of celestial glory had dashed Clear Over Kheuv cd s battlements upon this Metropolis of Persia in connection with this Palace there is a Garden a hero Tho mighty men of foreign la Nils arc seated at a banquet. Under the spread of Oak and Linden Aud acacia the tables Are Orru Ngod. Tho breath of honeysuckle until Frankine Eiiseo fills Tho air. Fount Uius leap up into the Light Tho Spray struck through with rainbows falling in crystalline baptism upon flowering shrubs then rolling Down through channels of Marble and widening out hero and there into pools swirling with the finny tribes of foreign aquariums bordered with Scarlet anemones Many coloured ranunculus. Meats of rarest Bird and beast siuoktng9i> amid wreaths of aromatics. Thu vases filled with apricots and Ulm Ouda. The baskets piled up with apricots und dates and figs and oranges and pomegranates. Melons tastefully twined with leaves of Uco to. The Bright Waters of Eul Tetts filling Tho urns and sweating outside the rim in flashing Heads amid the tra Ceries. Wine from Tho Royal vats of Isfahan Aud Shiraz in bottles of tinged Shell and Lily shaped cups of Silver Aud Flagon and tankards of solid Gold. Tho music rises higher Aud Tho revelry Breaks out into Wilder transport Aud the wine has flu Bod Tho Cheek and touched the Buiu and louder than All other voices arc Tho Hiccough of the inebriated Tho gabble of fools und Tho song of the drunkards. Vashti a refusal. In another part of the Palace Queen Vashti is entertaining Tho princesses of Persia at a banquet. Drunk1 t Ahasic rus says to his servants Quot on go out and fetch Vashti from that briquet with Tho women Aud bring iter to this Bau Quot with the men Aud let to display her Beauty. A Tho servants immediately Start to obey Tho King s command but there was a Rulo in Oriental society that no woman might appear in Public without having her face veiled. Yet Here Wos u mandate that no Ono dare dispute demanding that Vashti come in unveiled before the multitude. However there was in Vashti s soul a principle Toro regal than aha surus Moro Brilliant than the Gold of so Shan of More wealth than Tho realm of Persia which commanded her to disobey this order of the King and so All the righteousness and holiness and modesty of Hor nature rises up into Ono Sublime refusal. She says a i will not go into Tho banquet of course Aluiso is was infuriate and Vashti robbed of her position Ami her estate is driven Forth in poverty und ruin to suffer Tho scorn of a nation and yet to receive Tho applause of after generations who shall Rise no to Admire this Martyr to kingly inso Cuco. Well Tho last Vestigo of that feast is gone Tho last Garland has faded Tho last Orch has fallen the last Tankard has been destroyed Aud so Shan is a rain. But As Long As the world stands there will be multitudes of men Aud women familiar with Tho Bible who will come into this picture gallery of god and Admire Tho divine portrait of Vashti the Queen Vashti the veiled Vashti Tho sacrifice Vashti the silent. Noble women. In the first place i want you to look Pou Vashti Tho Quett. A Blu ribbon Rayed with White drawn around her forehead indicated her queenly position. It wus no Small Honor to be Queen in such a realm As Thul hark to the Rustle of her Robes so the Blaze of her jewels Aud yet my friends it is not Ueo Essary to have Palace and regal Robe in order to be queenly. When i see a woman with Strong Faith in god putting her foot upon All meanness and selfishness and godless display going right Forward to serve Christ and Tho race by a grand and glorious service i say. A that woman is a Queen a and the ranks of heaven look Over the battlements upon the Coronation and whether she come no from the shanty on the commons or the mansion of Tho fashionable 6qnare, i Greet her with the shout Quot All Hail i Queen what glory was there on the brow of Mary of Scotland. Or Elizabeth of England or Margaret of France or Catherine of Russia compared with the Worth of some of our Christian mothers Many of them gone into glory a or of that woman mentioned in the scriptures who put All her Money into Tho lord s Treasury or of Jeph thou s daughter who Madu a demonstration of unselfish patriotism or of Abigail who rescued Tho herds and locks of her husband or of Ruth who toiled under u tropical Sun for poor old helpless no omit or of Florence night Tugalo who went at Midnight to stanch the Battle wounds of the Crimea or of mrs. Adonirum Judson who kindled Tho lights of salvation until the darkness of Burmah or of mrs. Homans who poured out Hor holy soul in words which will forever to associated with Hunter s Horn and captives Chain and bridal hour and Lutes throb and curfews Knoll it Tho dying Day a and scores and hundreds of women unknown on Earth who have Given water to Tho thirsty and bread to Tho hungry and Medicine to the sick and smiles to Tho discouraged their footsteps heard along dark Lane Aud in government Hospital and in almshouse corridor and by prison Gate there May. To no Royal Robe i there May to no palatial Burron Ndinga. She does not need them for All charitable men will unite with Tho crackling lips of fever struck Hospital and plague blotched Lazaretti in greeting her As she pusses a Hail i Hail i Queen Vashti moment Merit. Aguin i want you to consider Vashti the veiled. Hud she appeared before alms Erus and his court on that Day with her Faco uncovered she would have shocked All Tho delicacies of Oriental society and Tho very men who ill their intoxication demanded that site Corno in their sober moments would Havo despised her. As some Flowers my to Ali rive Best in Tho dark lao und in Tho Shadow Aud where Tho Sun does not seem to reach them so god appoints to Moat womanly natures u retiring and knobs Trusio spirit god onto in awhile docs Call an Isabella to a throne or a Miriam to Striko the Timbrel it the front of a Hast or a Mario Antoinette to quell a French mob or a Deborah to stand it Tho front of in armed battalion crying out Quot up nil this is Tho Day in which Tho lord will deliver Sisero into to Lino and when called to such outdoor work and to such heroic positions god prepares them for it and they have Iron in their souls and lightning in their Eye und whirlwinds in their breath und the borrowed strength of Tho lord omnipotent in their right Arm. They walk through furn cos As though they were Hedges of wild Flowers Aud Cross seus As though they were shimmering Sapphire and All Tho harpies of hell Down to their Dungeon at tin stamp of Hor womanly indignation. But the so arc Tho exceptions. Generally Dorcas would rather make a garment fur the pour boy. Rebecca would rather fill tax trough for the camels. Huu Tudi would rather make a coat for Samuel the hebrew Nirid would rather give a prescription for Neuman s leprosy. Tho women of syrup to would rather gather a few Sticks to Cook a meal for furnished Elijah. Pho be would rather carry u letter Lor the inspired apostle. Mother Lois would rather cd Cuto Timothy in the scriptures. When i Sec a woman going about her daily duty with cheerful dignity presiding it the table with kind and gentle Init firm discipline presiding in the Nursery going out into the world without any blast of trumpets following in the foots a of him who went about doing , i say a this is Vashti with a veil but when i Sec a woman of a blushing boldness loud voiced with a Tuguo of infinite Clitter Clatter with arrogant look passing through the streets with the step of a walking beam gayly arrayed in a very Hurricane of i Illinora i cry out a Vashti has lost her Veillo when i Seo a woman of comely features und of adroitness of intellect Aud endowed with All that Tho schools can do for one und of High social position yet moving a society with supercilious Ness and hauteur As though Sho would Havo people know their place Aud an undefined combination of Giggle and strut and Rhodo Mostade endowed with allopathic quantities of talk but Only homeopathic infinitesimal of sense the terror of dry goods clerks Aud Railroad conductors discoverers of significant meanings in Plain conversation prodigies of bad Nugo and innuendo Isay Quot look look Vashti has lost her a scr Lucuns spirit. Again i want you to consider Vashti Tho sacrifice. Who is this i so coming out of that Palace Gate of Shoshar it seems to me that i Hugo seen her before. Sho comes homeless horseless friendless trudging along with a broken heart who is she it is Vashti Tho sacrifice. Of what it change it was from Regul position to a a crust a Little while ago approved Aud sought for now Souc so poor As to acknowledge her . Vashti Tho sacrifice a you Aud i have seen it Many a time Here is a Home Emu laced with Beauty. All that refinement and books and wealth Cun do for that Home has been done but Ahasuerus the husband and the father is taking hold on paths of sin. is gradually going Down. After awhile he will founder und struggle like a wild beast in the Hunter s net farther away from god further away from Tho right. Soon the Bright apparel of the Obil Dreu will turn to rags soon the household song will become the sobbing of a broken heart. The old Story Over again. Brutal contours breaking up the marriage feast of Lapin he. The House full of outrage Aud cruelty and abomination while trudging Forth from the Palace Gate Are Vashti and her children. There Are Homes that Are in danger of such a breaking up. Of Ahasuerus that you should stand in u Home by a dissipated life destroying the peace Aud Comfort of that Home. God forbid that your children should Ever have to wring their hands and Havo people Point their Finger at Thorn us they pass Down the Bertet Aud say Quot Tubero goes a drunkard s god forbid that the Little feet should Ever have to trudge the path of poverty and wretchedness. God forbid that any evil spirit born of the wine cup or the Brundy Glass should come Forth and uproot that Garden and with a lasting blistering All consuming curse shut forever the Palace Gate against Vashti and Tho children. During the War i went to Hagerstown to look at the army and i stood in the night on a Hilltop and looked Down upon them. I saw the campfires All through the valleys and All Over the Bills. It was a weird spectacle those campfires and i stood and watched them and the soldiers who were gathered around them were no double talking of their Home and of the Long March they Hud taken and of Tho Battles they were to fight. Bat after awhile i saw these campfires begin to lower und they continued to lower until they were All Gono out und the army slept. It was imposing when i saw Tho campfires it wus imposing in the darkness when i thought of that great Host asleep. Woll god looks Down from heaven Aud to sees Tho firesides of Christendom and Tho loved ones gathered around these firesides. These Ore the campfires where we warm ourselves at Taco close of the Day Aud talk Over the bottles of life we Havo fought and the Battles that Are yet to come. God Grant that when it last the so fires Bogin to go out and continue to lower until finally they Are extinguished and the ashes of consumed Hopes strew Tho Hearth of Tho old Home stood it May to because we have gone to sleep that last ions �?o1�?o�p from which non Over Wake to Woop. Now to Are on army on the March of life. Then to will to an army bivouacked in Tho tent of the Gruve. Waiting. Once More i wont you to look at Vashti Tho Vilont you do not hear any outcry from this woman us she goes Forth from Tho Polaco Gate. From Tho very dignity of her nature you know Oliero will to no voc iteration. Sometimes in life it is Nice usury to Mako a retort sometimes in life it is necessary to resist but there Are crises when Tho most triumphant tiling to do is to keep silence. The philosopher confident in his newly discovered principle waiting for the coming of Moro intelligent generations willing that men should laugh it Tho lightning Rod and Cotton Gin Aud Steamboat a waiting for Long years through Tho scoffing of philosophical schools in grand Aud Mugni ficut silence. Galilei condemned by mathematicians and scientists caricatured everywhere yet waiting and watching with his Telescope to see the coming up of Stellar re enforcements when Tho stars in their courses would fight for to cop Emica system then sitting Down in Complete blindness and deafness to wait for Tho coming on of Tho generations who would build his Monument and Bow at his grave. The reformer exec rated by his contemporaries fastened in n Pillory the slow fires of Public contempt burning under bit ground under the cylinders of the printing press yet calmly waiting for the Day when purity of soul and heroism of character will get Tho Sanction of Earth Aud the plaudits of heaven. Afi lotion enduring without any complaint the Shu Puess of Tho Pung and the Ylo Louco of the storm and the heft of the Chain att of the darkness of night waiting until a divine hand shall to put Forth to soothe Tho Pang Aud hush the storm Aud release Tho captive. A wife abused persecuted and a perpetual exile front every earthly comforts waiting wait aug until the lord shall gather All his dear children in a heavenly Home Aud no poor Tesh twill Ever be thrust out firn the Palace Gate. Jesus in silence and answering not a word drinking the Gull bearing Tho Cross in Prospect of the rapturous consummation when Angels thronged he Chariot wheel and bore him to his throne. Then swept their Golden harps and lung Tho glorious work is done. Of woman i does not this Story of Vashti the Queen Vashti the veiled Vashti the sacrifice Vashti the silent move your soul my Sermon converges into Tho to absorb id Hope thut Nono of you May be shut out of the Palace Gate of heaven. You can endure the hardships Aud the privations and the cruelties and Tho misfortunes of this life if you Oun Only gain admission there. Through the blood of the everlasting covenant you go through these Gates or never go at All. God forbid that you should at lost be banished from the society of Angels Aud banished from the companionship of your glorified Kindred quid banished forever. Through the Rich Grace of our lord Jesus Christ May you be enabled to imitate the example of Rachel Aud Hannah and Abigail and Deborah and Mary and Esther and Vashti. Amu. Icing vegetables for shipment. Quot one of the most Cmur Pablo new departures in the freight business a said or. Omar h. Bartlett general freight agent of Tho Louisville and Nashville Railroad Quot is the idea of icing vegetables for shipping Long distances. It Hus been tried spasmodic ully in other years but Novar until this year was the plan carried ont to any extent. Now the new Orleans shippers Are icing their vegetables right along. We have already this season hauled 23 curs to new York City alone that contained iced vegetables and Tho shipments to 3oston, Buffalo Pittsburg Baltimore Philadelphia Aud in fact to a ill the Northern cities Havo followed out this new idea. You know the shipments of cucumbers cabbages Beans and All kinds of Garden stuff have grown very rapidly in Tho past few years and now Tho producers have found it necessary to ice them. The process of packing is quite interesting. A a new Orleans times Democrat genuine and Spurio Hay fever what a superlative Comfort it is to learn from Tho manual of Tho United states Hay fever a a social Ion for 1s96 that there is a spurious Disesso of Hay fever As Well As the real thing itself. To victim whether he to Ono of Juno of july of August of september or of All Bummer Long May now be Content no matter what his physical agonies in Tho thought that his Hay fever May after All be but to exc Shadow of a curse. To May punctuate every sneeze every headache spasm every cough with a Happy Relief born of Tho idea. A Hal a t s Only spurious buy fever How glad i am a to All others Hay fever May seem More or loss of a joke but to him to whom the summer is nothing but Ono Long drawn out und never ending nasal titillation the fever born of Flowers and Hay Aud other botanical products is Moro than serious. It is appalling. Hence Tho reason for Tho existence of this association Whoso president says in his latest address a a done to wait at Home until Hay fever comes on before going away. This is the important Don to Aud As a supplement to this advice a list of Over 100 a a exempt places Are Given ranging from California to Nova Scotia where the weary i Kcezer May find Relief front his exhausting snoozes. Tho White mountains Are the nearest Huven of Relief hereabouts barring the Quot dark and deep Blue Ocean Quot which is recommended As an infallible transcript. 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 tiie necessary funeral obsequies und is bused upon and seeks the Extension of the principles of total abstinence front All intoxicating drinks. The order has 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 Sod and Are willing to sign our pledge of total abstinence Are eligible to membership. Persons Over age May become honorary members. Female tents composed of White females 12 years of age and upwards a Junior Branch of boys from 12 to 16 years und juvenile tents for children of both sexes Between the Ages of 5 and 10 years. Each Branch Hoe a service especially adapted. It Lias been found that by working in separate branches of the organization there is More Freedom of action than when All Ages and sexes Are thrown together. Each Branch of the order is represented in the higher body and a fostering care is exercised Over All alike. Thus with the men and women girls and boys All United under one head the i. O. Of r. Is As an irresistible army moving on to Victory. The order has and will continue to prove a Blessing to our country not Only in proving an Asylum for the reformed drunkard but by inducing the sober and religious part of the Community to unite in securing the rising generation from the evils of intemperance and ultimately hand Down to generations yet unborn the benefits of sobriety. �?�3 \ = name it a fit an i Pluto of stent i location meeting of 7 j a Conick Saxis or Lily Kucci Iballo Hull Atlantic a Anfu a re saturday a a Poco Ruoko Accomac Tuura it May Quot Mear Bailie to Iranio a saturday g.
