Nothing to Cut plenty of oort i Lix it hot Gln Estly Fanino in in Maiuu. The cattle in Outing in lie stall. Mon women and children awfully Whito with hunger. Not the failing of Otto crop for one summer but the failing of nil the crops for seven years. A nation dying for Lack of that which is so common of your table and so Little appreciated the product of Harvest Field and Gristmill Anil oven the Price of sweat Aud anxiety Ami struggle bread Jacob Tho father has t he last report from thu Lour bin Aud Lio lauds that everything is out and he says to his sons Quot boys Hook up the wagons Ulm Start for Egypt and get us something to Tho fact was Thero was a great Cor crib in Egypt. Tho people of Egypt Ivo Boon largely taxed in All Ages at Tho present time paying Between 70 and 80 per cent of their products to thu government no wonder in that time they had a Large Cor crib Aud it was full. To that crib they Camo from Tho regions around a bout those who were famished seme paying for the Corn in Money when Tho Money was exhausted paying for Tho Corn in sheep and cattle and horses and Curnoles Anil when they were exhausted then Selling their own bodies Aud their families into slavery. To m Union. Tho morning for starting onic on Tho crusade for bread has arrived. Jacob gets his family up very Early. But before Tho older sons Sturt they say something that makes him tremble with emotion from head to foot and Hurst into tear. The fact was that these elder sons had once before Teicu in Egypt to get Corn Aud they had been treated somewhat roughly tie lord of Tho Corn crib supplying Thorn with Corn but saying it Tho close of the interview a now Yon need not Conte Back hero for any More Corn unless Yon bring something better than Money even your younger brother Alt i Benjamin that very name was suggestive of nil tenderness. The Mother had died at the birth of that Sony a spirit coming and another spirit going and Tho very thought of parting with Benjamin must have been a Heartbreak. Tho keeper of this Cor crib nevertheless says to these elder sons Quot Thero is no need of your coming up hero any More for Corn unless you can bring Benjamin your father s now Jacob and lib family very much needed bread but what a struggle it would to to give up this son the orientals Are very demonstrative in heir grief Anil i hear the in trailing of the father us these elder sons keep reiterating in his cars tie announcement of Tho egyptian lord Quot be shall not see Tuy face unless your brother to with Why did you Tell him you Hail a brother a save Tho old Man complaining and chiding them. A Why father a they said Quot he asked is All about our family Tuimil we bad no idea that lie would make any such Dormund Pou us As he has made. A Quot no use of asking to Quot said the father. Quot cannot i will not give up the fact was Itiat Tho old Man had lost children Aud when Tirro hits been bereavement in a household mid a child taken it makes tie other child ecu in Tho household More precious. So the Day for departure was adjourned and adjourned and adjourned. Stil to horrors of the famine increased mid louder moaned Tho cattle mid wider open cracked the Earth Anil Moro pallid to cum the chocks until Jacob in despair cried out to his sous Quot take Benjamin and to off a Tho older sons tried to Slicer up their father. They said Quot to Havo Strong arms and a Stout heart mid no harm will Como to Benjamin. Well see hint lie gets Back Quot Farewell i Quot said Tho Young men to Tho father in a tone of assumed Good cheer. "f-n-r-e-w-e-j-1�?� said tic old Man for that word has More quavers in it Wien pronounced by the aged Liun by the Young. In rennet. Well tie bread party Tho bread embassy drives up in front of Tho Cor crib of Egypt. Those with wheat and Barley Aud Corn in Tho Husk for modern travellers in those lands both in Sunami and in Egypt Tell us there is Corn Thoro corresponding with our India Raizo. Huzzah i Tho journey is ended. Tie lord of the Corn Erib who is also to prime minister comes Down to Tieso newly arrived travellers Aud says a Dine with me today. Tiow is your father is this Benjamin Tho younger brother whose present i demanded a the travellers Aro introduced into the Palace. They ure worn and be rusted of the Way and servants come in with a Basin of water in Oue hand mid a Towel in the other and Kneel Down before these newly arrived travellers washing off the dust of the Way. Tho butchers and Poulterer Aud caterers of the prime minister prepare Tho repast. The guests Are seated in Small groups two or three at a table Tho food on a tray All the Lynx urics from Imperial gardens and Orchards Aud aquariums Aud aviaries Are brought there and ure filling chalice Aud Platter. Now is Tho time for this prime minister if he has a grudge against Benjamin to show it. Will to kill him. Now that he has him in his bands of no tbs lord of the Corno rib is seated at his own table Aud to looks Over to the tables of his guests Aud he sends a portion to each of them but sends a larger portion to Benjamin or As the Bible quaintly pats it Quot Benjamin a a mess was five times As much As any of to Quick and Send word Back with swiftest Camel to Canaan to old Jacob that a Benjamin is Well All is Well. is faring sumptuously. The egyptian lord did not mean murder and death but he meant deliverance and life when to announced to us on that Day a to shall not see my face unless Lynnr brother be with you.1 Quot i Well my friends tills world is famine struck of sin. It docs not yield a single crop of solid satisfaction. It is dying. It is hunger bitten. To fact that it does not. Cannot feed a Man s heart was Well illustrated in the life of the English comedian. All the world honoured him a did everything for him that Tho world could do. To was applauded in England and applauded in the United states. To roused up nations into laughter. and to equal. Aud yet although Many peo Plo supposed him entirely Happy nil that this world was completely satisfying his soul to sits Down Aud writes Quot i never in my life put on a new hat that it did not rain and ruin it. I never went out in a shabby coat Beau so it was raining and thought All who had Tho Clio Ico would keep indoors that the snit did not Como out in its strength Anil bring out with it All the butterflies of Fasli iou i knew Aud who knew to. I never consented to accept a part i hated out of kindness to another that i did not got hissed by Tho Public and Cut by the writer. I could not take a drive for a few minutes with Terry without til ing overturned and having my Elbow broken though my Friend got off unharmed. I could not Mako a of Veaunt with Arnold i Ipoh i thought was to Tytko my Fortune without making his instead than in an incredibly Short space of time i think 13 mouths�?1 Enanod for him �20,000 Anil for myself �1. I am persuaded that if i wore to Sot up As u Baker every one in my neighbourhood would leave off eating the Pessimist. That was the in moist of the worlds comedian and joker. All us Lippy. Tho world did everything for lord Byron that it Conerl do and yet in his last moment he asks a Friend to come and sit Down by him and Road As most appropriate to his Case the Story of Quot Tho bleeding Torrigiano Tho sculptor executed after Mounlia of Oare and carving a Madonna Anil the the Royal family Rinmo in Aud us mired it. Everybody that looked at it was in Cost Lucy hut one Day after All but toll Ami All that admiration because to did not get As much pompous action for his work Asho had expected he took u mul Lut and dashed the exquisite san Laturo into atoms. The world is poor compel nation poor suit suction poor Solace. Fumino famine in All Tho Earth not for 7 years but for 0,000. But. Blessed to god there is a Grant Cor crib. The lord built it. It is in another Lurnel. It is u Large place. An Zugel onco measured it and As far As i Enn calculate it in Oue phrase that Cor crib is 1,500 Miles Long and 1,500 Miles Broad and 1,500 High and it is full. Food for All nations. Quot of Quot say the people Quot to will Start right away Aud get this Supply for our soul Quot but Stop a moment for from the Kec Pex of that Corn Erib Thero comes this word saying Quot you shall not see my face except your brother la. With in other words there is to Sacii thing As getting from heaven Pardon Aud Comfort and eternal life unless we bring with us our divine brother the lord Jesus Christ coming without him we Shull full before to reach Tho Cor crib and our bodies Shull be a portion for the Jack us of the wilderness but coming with the divine Jesus All the granaries of heaven will swing open before our soul and abundance shall to Given us. We shall be invited to sit in Tho Palace of the King and it the table and while the lord of heaven is apportioning from Luis own table to other tables to will not forget us Ami then Aud there it will be found that our Benjamin s mess is larger than All Tho others for so it ought to be. Quot worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive Blessing Aud riches and Honor Ulm glory and Power a i want to make three Points. Every Frank Ulm common sense Matt will acknowledge i Gisolf to to a sinner. What no you going to do with your sins have them pardoned you suy. How through the mercy of god. What do you mean by the mercy of god is it the letting Down of a Bur for the admission of All without respect to character to not deceived. I see a soul coming up to Tho Gate of mercy and knocking at the Cor crib of heavenly Supply Ami a voice from within says a Are you Ulouse Quot Tho a a inter replies a fall the voice from within says Quot Yon shall not son my pardoning face unless your divine brother Tho lord Jesus be with of that is Tho Point at which so Many Are disco fit Oil there is to Meroy from god except through Jesus Christ coining with him we Are accepted. Coming without him we urn rejected. Peter put it right in his great Sermon before Tho High priests when he thundered Forth Quot neither is there any other. There is to other name Given under heaven among men whereby to May to of anxious sinner of dying sinner Oil lost sinner All you have got to do is to have this divine Benjamin Alou with you Side by Side coming to the Gate All Tho storehouses of heaven will swing open before your anxious Sony am i right in calling Jesus Benjamin of yes Rachel lived Only Long enough to give a Amo to that child and with a dying kiss site called him Benoni. Afterwards Jacob changed his name and lie called him Benjamin. The meaning of the name she gave was Quot so of qty the meaning of the name the father gave was Quot son of my right Aud was not Christ the son of pain All the sorrow of Rachel in that hour when she gave her child Over into the hands of strangers was As nothing compared with the struggle of god when he Guve up his ouly son. Aud was not Christ appropriately called Quot son of the right hand Quot did not Stephen look into Heavon Aud see him standing at Tho right hand of god and does not Paul speak of him As standing at the right Hnud of god making intercession for is of Blu Jumius Jesus son of Pang son of Victory the deepest emotions of our souls ought to to stirred at the sound of that nomenclature. Lit your prayers plead his tears his sufferings his sorrows and his death. If you refuse to do it All the Cor cribs and to palaces of heaven will be bolted and barred Ngn inst your soul and a voice from the throne shall stun you with the announcement a you shall not see my face except your brother to with present sympathy. My text also suggests Tho reason Why so Many people do not get any real Comfort Yon meet ten people. Nine of them Are in need of some kind of condolence. There is something in their health or in their state or in their Domestic condition Bluit demands sympathy. And yet must of Tho world s sympathy amounts to absolutely nothing. People go to Tho wrong crib or Almy go in the wrong Way. When Tho plague was in Rome a Gnu Many yours Ugo Thero were 80 men who chanted themselves to death with Tho litanies of Gregory Tho great a literally chanted themselves to death a and yet it did not Stop the plague. And nil the Musio of this world cannot halt tin plague of the human heart i Como to some our whose Anil i say a in heaven you will never be that does not give Yon much Comfort. What you want is a soothing Power for your present distress. Lost children Hutc you i Como to you and toll Yon that in ten years perhaps you will moot those loved ones before Tho throne of god. But Thoro is but Little could Leuco in but. Our Day is a year with them Aud ten years is a Small of equity. What you want is sympathy now present help. I come to those of you who. Have lost dear friends and say try to forget them. Do not keep Tho departed always in your How can you forget Thorn when Overy figure in the carpet Aud every Book Aud every picture and every room Calls out their name. Suppose i Como to you and say byway of condolence. Quot god la w Quot of Quot you suy a that gives to to Bol i Quot suppose i Como to you Aud say Quot god. From All eternity Hus arranged this Quot a Quot Yon say Quot that does me no Good a then i say Quot with Tho Swift feet of prayer go direct to Tho Cor crib for n heavenly Supply. A you go. You say Quot lord help to lord Comfort but no help yet. No Comfort yet. It is All dark. What is the matter i Havo found. You ought to go god Ulm say Quot hero o lord Are the wounds of my soul and i bring with to Tho wounded Jesus. Let his wounds pay for my wounds his bereavement for my bereavement his Louo Liness for my loneliness his Heartbreak for my Heartbreak. O god for Tho Synko of the lord Jesus Christ the god to Man the Benjamin Tho brother deliver my agonized soul o Jesus of Tho worry foot ease my fatigue. O Jesus of to itching head heal my Ching Bead. O Jesus of tie Bethany Sisters Roll Awny Tho Stone from Tho door of our that is Tho kind of prayer that brings help Aud yet How Many of you Are Holp at Ull for Tho reason that there is in your soul perhaps a secret trouble. You May never Havo mentioned it to u single human ear or you May Havo mentioned it to some one who is now gone away Ulm that great sorrow is still in your soul after Washington Irving was dead they found u Little Box that Coutu ined a braid of hair Aud a miniature Aud the name of Matilda Huffman and a memorandum of her death Anil a remark something la o this Quot the world after that was a Blank to me. I went into thu country hut found no peace in Solitude. I tried to get iut society hut i found no Peaco in society. There has been a horror hanging Over my by night Aud by Day and i am afraid to to Alono How Many a uttered troubles among you no human car Lias Ever Beard that sorrow. Uli troubled soul i want to Tell you that there is one Salvo that can cure Tho wounds of the heart and that is the Salve Mado out of the tears of a sympathetic Jesus and yet some of you will not take this Solace and you try chloral and you try morphine Aud you try Strong drink and you try Oriange of scene and you try new business associations and anything and everything rather than to take the Divivo companionship and sympathy suggested by Tho words of my text when it says a Lyon shall not see my face Guiu unless your brother be with you. A a of that Thimau Dimenco today might understand something of Tho hoi Glit and depth and length nil breadth and immensity and Infinity of gods eternal consolations i an element of failure. I go farther and find in my subject a hint As to Why so Ninny people fail of heaven. We Are told that heaven has 13 pates and some people infer from that fact that Ull tie people will go in without reference to their past life. But what is Tho Uso of having u Gate that is not sometime to to shut the a winging of a Gate implies that our Entrance into heaven is conditional. It is not monetary condition. If to Como to the door of an exquisite concert we Aro not surprised that we must pay a fee for to know that Flo earthly music is expensive. But All the oratorios of Heavon Cost nothing. Heaven pays nothing for its music. It is All free. There is nothing to lie paid at that door for on Tronco but the condition of getting into heaven is our bringing our divine Benjamin along with us. Do you notice How often dying people curl upon Jesus it is the usual the same. Old Sarsaparilla. That Sayers a. The same old Sarsaparilla As it was made and sold by or. J. C. Ayer 50 years ago. In the Laboratory it is different. There modern appliances lend 6peed to skill and experience. But the Sarsaparilla is the same old Sarsaparilla that made the record co gears of cures. Why Don t we better it Well we re much in the condition of the Bishop and the Raspberry 11 doubtless a he god might have made a Berry. But doubtless he never Why done to we better the Sarsaparilla we can t. We Are using the same old Plant that cured the indians and the spaniards. It has not been bettered. And since urn make Sarsaparilla compound out of Sarsaparilla Plant we see no Way of improvement. Of course if we were making some secret chemical compound we might. But we re not. We re making the same old Sarsaparilla to Cuse the same old diseases. You can Tell its the same old. Sarsaparilla because it works the same old cures. Its the Sovereign blood purifier and Ftp Sayers. Said better also prayer offered i to prayer offered More Thau All t lie of her prayers put together a a lord Jesus receive my spirit la Otic of our congregation when asked in Tho closing moments of his life a do you know us a said a ooh yes i know Yon. God bless you. Goodby lord Jesus receive Ziy a spirit. A Aud to was gone. Us yes in the closing moments of our life we must have a Christ to Call upon. If Jacobs sons Hod gone up toward Egypt hid had gone with the very finest equipage and and not taken Benjamin along with them and to the question they should have been obliged to answer Quot sir we did no to bring him us father could not let him go we did no to want to be bothered with him Quot a voice front within would Hugo said Quot go away from us. You Shull not Havo any of this Supply. You shall not Seo my face because your brother is not with and if we Como up toward Tho door of heaven it last though to come from All Luxuriance and brilliancy of surroundings and Knock for admittance and it is found that Christ is not with us Tho police of heaven will beat us Back from thu Freud House Suying Quot depart. I never knew you. A tie key to Success. If Jacob s sans coming toward Egypt bad lost everything on to Way if they Luil expended their last shekel if they Hud Como up utterly exhausted to the conc lbs of Egypt Aud it had been found that Benjamin wus with them All Tho storehouses would Hugo swung open before them. And so though by fatal casualty we May to ushered into the eternal world though to May to weak and exhausted by protruded sickness if in that last moment we can ouly just stagger and faint and fall into the gut of Licus Cne it socks that All the Cor cribs heaven will open for. Our need und All Tho palaces will open for our reception und the lord of that place seated at his table and All the Angels of god Scutch at their table and the martyrs seated at their table and All our glorified Kindred seated at our table the King shall pass a portion from Bis table to ours and then while to think of the fact but it was Jesus who started us on the Road und Jesus Wiio kept us of the Way und Jesus who at lust gained admittance for our soul we shall to glad if to has seen of to Travail of bin soul and been satisfied and not bout All jealous if it be found that our divine Benjamin s mess is five times larger than All the rest. Hail anointed of tie lord thou Art worthy. My friends you so it is either Christ or famine. If there were two banquets spread and to one of them Only Yon might go you might stand and think for a Good while As to which invitation 1 you Hud better accept but Here it is feasting or starvation. If there were two mansions offered and you might Havo Only one Yon might think for a Long while saying Quot perhaps i had better accept this gift Aud perhaps i had better accept that gift Quot but Here it is a Choice Between palaces of Light and hovels of despair. If it were a Choice Between oratorios Yon might say a i prefer the a creation a or a i prefer Tho Messiah. A a a but hero it is a Choice Between eternal Harmody and everlasting discord. Of will you live or die will you sail into Tho Harbor or drive on Tho rocks will you Start for Tho egyptian Corn Erib or will you perish amid the empty barns of Tho canaanite is famine a Leopard Hunt in Africa. Started oat Bunting at 5 of clock Cumo upon a Small Herd of a Sulu followed them carefully but could not get near enough to have a Shol after in hour i found that i was not alone in being interested in the Swala. A Leo Pardess Hud stepped in Between to Aud the game. When i first saw her. She was crouched like a cat. Then Slio moved stealthily into some thick Bushes Aud crept rapidly toward the Buck. For about a Quarter of a Aniio i moved stealthily and quickly toward Tho Gamo. I was then within a Short distance of them and could faintly hear the creatures in among u clump of Trees. 1 was thinking Bow Best to stalk and get a shot when to Leo Pardess again appeared about eight Yards from me und close to the Swala. She had cleverly crept to Windward Ulm was now almost within striking distance. She crouched and moved her licit slowly from Sido to Sido in order More clearly to see her game. To get u better View Sho slowly raised her head and sat of her haunches. Then she took a still bettor View by putting her front paws on a log which raised her two or three inches higher. Then Sho showed her head and shoulders above the grass Aud i succeeded in putting n Snider Bullet through her. Sho was six feet in length. It is a very rare thing to so a Leopard at All and most unusual to see one in Tho daytime. The natives were delighted. I find the killing of Tho Leopard raises me to u heroic plane while As a matter of fact Tho Mere killing of Tho beast wus As Ensy As the shooting of a retriever dog.diary of Tho Lato e. J.
