The grandest tint on tie father s comes Back. Among Trio great Brou Gulio in the Parlours of our Church professed Christ one Nigon was a Young Man who next morning rang my Doorbell and said Quot sir i cannot contain myself with the Joy i feel. I came hire this morning to express it. I have found More Joy in Hoo Jui Nutis ins re aug god than in nil the veins of my prodigality and i came to say Yon have seen perhaps a Man running for his Liberty Ami the officers of Trio Law after him and Yon him escape or afterwards Yon Luar the judge had pardoned Lii i and How great was the glee of that rescued Man but it is u very tunic thing that compared with the running for Olio s everlasting life Tho terrors of Trio Law after him and Christ coming in to i Pardon Aud bless Aud Rescue and save.

Crying i Quot life life eternal life Quot a poor car Driver some time ago after years Huv ing had to struggle to support his Fanti la suddenly was informed Tiitu a Largo inheritance was his and there was a Joy amounting to bewilderment hut that is a Small thing compared with the experience of one when he has put in his hands the title deed to Trio Joys the raptures the splendours of heaven and a can truly say Quot its mansions arc mine its temples Are mine its songs Are mine its god is mine a of it is no tame tiling to become a Christian. It is a merrymaking. It is the killing of the fatted calf. It is n Jubilee. You know the Bible never compares it to a funeral but always compares it to something delightful. It is More Apt to be compared to a banquet than anything else. It is compare ii in the Bible to water Bright. Hushing water to the morning Roseate tin worked Mountain transfigured morning.

Like the Young a Nan of Trio text have gone far astray. 1 know not the history but you know it. You know it. When a Young Man went Forth into life flu legend says Lis guardian Angel went Forth with him and getting him into a Field the guardian Angel swept a Circle Clear ii mud where the Young Man stood. It was a Circle of virtue and Honor and lie must not step beyond that Circle. Armed foes Caine Down but were obliged to halt at the Circle. They Nold not pass. But one Day a temptress with Diamonde baud strip till a Forth and that Circle with to a hand Aud the tempted soul took it. Mid by that one f-11 grip was beyond the t ire died. Some of you have s. I i Roud that Circle. Would von not ilk tills Day. By tin gras of ill. To i i Back this 1 say to you. Is your hour of salvation. Ten re was in tile losing hours of Queen Anne what is called the clock scene. I a iat Down on tin Pillow in helpless sickness she could not move her head or move her hand. Site was waiting for the hour when the ministers of state should gather in angry contest1 and worried and worn out by the coming hour and in momentary absence of tie nurse in the Power the strange Power which delirium sometimes gives Otto she arose and stood in front of the clock and stood there watching the clock when the nurse returned. Tho nurse said Quot do you Sto anything Peculiar about that Dock a she made no answer but a me died. There is lock scene ill every Hilory if some of you would Rise i ii tin bed of lethargy and come out from year delirium of sin and look on the Loek of your destiny this moment you would see a Tad hear something you have not s in or heard before nine every tick of the minute and every stroke of the hour Aud every swing of the pendulum would say now now now now you come Home to your father s Otisi come la me o prodigal from the wilderness come Home come Home but i notice that when the prodigal came there was la father s Joy. Lie did not Greet hint with any formal Quot How do you do Quot he did net come out and say Quot von me unfit to enter. Go and was Hia the trough by tie Well mid then Yon can come in. We have had enough trouble with a no when lilt proprietor of that estate proclaimed festival it was 1111 outburst of a father s love and a fathers Joy. God is your father. I have not much sympathy with the description of god i sometimes hear As though lie were a turkish Sultan hard und unsympathetic and listening not to the cry of his subjects. A Man told me be in one of the Eastern lauds a King Riding along and two men were in altercation and Oik charged then therewith having eaten his Rice and the King said a then slay the Man and by postmortem examination find whether lie has eaten Tho and lie was slain. A the cruelty of a scene like Bluit our god is not a Sultan not a despot but a father kind Loving forgiving and lie makes All heaven ring again when n prodigal comes Back. Quot i have no alias Are a he says Quot in the death of him that All May be saved. If a Man not get to i Eavou it is because lie will not go there. No Dii Terc Nee the color no difference the history no ill Terence the antecedent 110 difference the surroundings no difference Trio sin. When the White horses of Clorist s Victory Are brought out to celebrate the eternal Triumph you May ride one of them and As god is greater than All his Joy is greater and when a soul Conics Back there is in Bis heart the surging of an infinite Ocean of gladness and to express that gladness it takes All Trio Rivers of pleasure All the thrones of pomp Aud All Trio Ages of eternity. It is a Joy deeper than All depth and higher than All height and wider thou All Width and vaster than All immensity. It overtop it undergirds it outweighs All the United splendor and Joy of the universe Aud who can Tell what god s Joy is you remember Reading the Story of a King who on some great Day of festivity scattered Silver and Gold among Tho people who sent valuable presents to his courtiers hut to thinks when a soul comes Back god is so glad that to express his Joy he flings out new worlds into Spineo Aud kindles up new suns Aud Rolls among the White Robed anthems of Tho redeemed a greater hallelujah while with a voice that reverberates among the mountains of frankincense and is echoed Back from the everlasting Gates to cries Quot this my son was dead and to is alive again Quot he will come Back. At the opening of the exposition in new url Caus i a mexican flautist und he played the Solo Ami then afterwards the eight or ten bands of music accompanied by the great Organ Como in. But the sound of that one flute us Emu pared a Quot i All Tom orchestras was greater than All the combined Joy of Tom universe when compan a with Tho resounding heart of almighty god. For ten years a father went three times a Day to the Dup it. son went off in aggravating circumstances but the father said Quot lie will come Tho Strain was Toomin i Anil his mind parted and thre e times a Day the father went. In the Early morning in watched the train its arrival the stepping out of the passengers Ntuli then tie departure of the train. At Nonu he was there again watching the Advance of Tom train watching the departure. At night lie was there again watching thu coming watching the going for ten years. To was sure his son would Smuc Back. Guil has us ii watching Aud waiting for some of you my Brothers 10 years 20 years �?�10 years id yours perhaps 50 years waiting wailing watching watching und if now the prodigal should com Home Liat a scene of gladness and festivity and How thu great fathers heart would re Oieu it your coming i uric. Iou will come some of you will you not Yon will you will. I notice also that when a prodigal comes Home there is Tom Joy of the ministers of re Ligion. Of in is a grand thing to preach this gospel i i know lore Lias been a great Deal said about the trials and Trio hardships of Tho Christian ministry. I wish somebody would write a Good rousing Book Ata iut urn Joys of Trio Christian ministry. Since 1 entered the profession i have seen More of tile goodness of god than i will he Able to celebrate in All eternity. I know sumo boast about and they do not Rise into enthusiasm Aud they do not break Down with emotion hut i confess to you plainly Tomt when i see ii Man coming to god and giving up his sin i feel in body mind and soul a transport. When i Sec a mail bound hand and foot in evil habit de 1 rejoice Over it As though it were my own a Mimi Patio. Why Clooj Cyma arc Long Livc-1. Win n Iii one Cimin Iurii 111 service such throngs of Young and old stood up and in Tom presence of heaven and Earth mid hell attested their allegiance to Jesus Christ 1 Felt a Joy something Akin to that which the apostle describes when be says Quot whether in the body i cannot Tell or ont of the body i cannot Tell god of have not ministers a right to re juice when a prodigal Aumi s Home tii y blew Trio trumpet and ought they it he glad of tin gathering of the Host they pointed to the full Supply mid ought they not to rejoice when thirsty souls plunge As the Hart for the water Brooks they came Forth saying Quot ail tilings Are now ready a ought they not to rejoice when the prodigal sits Down to the banquet life ii trance men will All Tell you that ministers of religion As a class live longer than any other. It is tin statistics of All Tomse who calculate upon human longevity that ministers of religion As a class live Louger than any other. Why is it there is More draft upon the nervous system than in any other profession Mol their toil is most exhausting. I have seen ministers kept on Inis in Blu Stivi oids by parsimonious congregations who wondered at Tho dullness of the Sermon when the men of god were perplexed almost to death by questions of livelihood and had not enough nutritious food to keep any lire in their Tom i Raul Dit. No fuel no lire. I have something v seen the inside of Tho Litcof Many of the american clergymen never accepting their hospitality because they Craig of afford it but i have seen them struggle on with salaries of $50t or$0u0 a year the average less than that their struggle Well depicted by the Western missionary who says in a letter Quot thank you for the lust remittance. Until it came we had not any meat in our House for one year and All last Winter although it was a severe Winter our children wore their summer and these men of god 1 find in different ports of the land struggling against annoyance and exasperation innumerable some of them week after week entertaining agents who have maps or lightning rods to sell and submitting themselves to All styles of annoyance mud yet without complaint and cheerful of soul. How do you account for Trio fact that these life insurance men Tell us that ministers As a class live Unger than any other it is because of tin Joy of their work the Joy of the Harvest Field the Joy of greeting prodigals Home to their father s House of we Are in sympathy with All innocent Hilari ties. We can enjoy a Hearty song and we can he merry with thu merriest but those of us who have toiled in the service arc ready to testify that All these Joys Are tame compan in with the satisfaction of seeing men enter the kingdom of god. The great eras of every ministry Are the outpourings of the holy ghost and 1 to bunk god 1 have seen 1c of them. Thank god thank god a firt it Ca Minnion. I notice also when tie prodigal comes Back ail to nest Wiiri Titus rejoice. If you stood of Montauk Point and there was a Hurricane it sea and it was blow ing toward Trio Shore Aud a vessel crashed into Tho rocks and Yon peo Plo get ashore in Trio lifeboats and Tho very last Man got on Tho rocks in safety you Ronal nut control your Joy. And it is a glad time when the Church of god sees men who Are tossed of Tho Ocean of their sins Plant flu in feet on Trio Rock Christ Jesus. Oil when prodigals come Home just hear the christians sing. Just hear the christians Pray. It is not a stereotyped supplication we have heard Over and Over again for 20 years but a putting of the Case in the hands of god with an importunate pleading. No Long prayers. Men never Pray at great length unless they Honvo nothing to say and their hearts Are hard and cold. All tie prayers in the Bible that were a Sweryd were Short prayers. A god be merciful to me a Quot lord that i May receive my Quot lord save me or i perish a the longest prayer Solomon sprayer at the dedication of the Temple less than eight minutes in length according to the Ordinary rate of enunciation and just hear them Pray now that the prodigals Are coming he my. Just see them shake hands. No putting Forth of the four tips of the fingers in a formal Way but a Hearty grasp where the Muscles of the heart seem to Clinch the fingers of one hand around the other hand. Aud then see those Christian faces. How illuminated they arc and see that old Man get up and with the same voice that lie Saug 50 years ago in the old country meeting House say a now lord wettest Koa thy servant depart in peace for mine eyes have Sekii Ilia there was a Man of Keith who was hurled into prison in tiny of Persen Tiu and one Day Lio got off his shackles Aud in came and stood by the prison door and when the Jailer was opening the door with am stroke lie struck Down tie Man who Hail incarcerated him. Passing along tie streets of London to wondered where his family was. did lint dare to ask lest lie excite suspicion hut passing along a Little Way from the prison lie sawn Keith Tankard a cup Tomt belonged to the family from generation to generation lie it in a window. His family hoping Tomt some Day lie would get Clear came and lived of near As they could to thu prison House und they set that Keith Tankard in Tho window hoping lie would see it and lie come along and it and knocked at thu door and went in and the Long separated family were again. Oil if you would Start for Trio kingdom of god this hour i think sonic of you would find nearly nil your friends and nearly All your families around the holy Tankard of Trio holy communion fathers mothers Brothers Sisters around that Suc Rcd Tankard which commemorates tie love of Jesus Christ our lord. It will be a great communion Day when your whole family sits ii oud the sacred Tankard. One on Earth. One in heaven. Once More i re Mark that when Trio prodigal gets Back the inhabitants of he veil keep Festal. I am very certain of it. If you have never seen a Telegraph Chart you have no idea How Many cities Are connected together and How Many lands. Nearly All the neighbourhoods of the Earth seem reticulated and news flies from City to City and from continent to continent. But More rapidly go the tidings from Earth to heaven and when a prodigal re turns it is announced before tin three., of god. And if Tieso souls now present should enter the kingdom there would he some one a the heavenly kingdom to say a that s my father Quot a that s my Mother Quot Quot that s my son Quot Quot that s tie Oacle Sedito Pray for a a a that a the one for wham i wept so Ninny tears Quot and no soul would say Quot Hosanna Quot and another soul would say Quot hallelujah Quot Picas my with Tho news Tho mints Bolus in songs Ihor Tongue employ.

Hills a Black Hills operator tells How ragged top Tho new Goldfield was located As follows a this history of Tho ragged top find reads like a Romance. Tie Story they Tell is that a wandering Hobo strolled up into the Spears Isle Region Northwest of Deadwood just aimlessly trumping Al wit the country with no More knowledge of mining than you have. anally dropped ill with some Fellows and asked tin in whore tin y supposed he might be Able to find some Rich diggings. There was considerable Snow on the ground and one of tin Fellows pointed haphazard Over to a stretch of the White landscape and winked at his companions while lie said to the Hobo would t wonder if you la find something Rich right there. A a a a guess i la take it then a said he. A Otlie Snow made it impossible for him to know anything about Bluit to had selected but to carry out Tho awfully Good Joko on him the Fellows in tie Camp explained How he must proce �1 to secure a Legal location. Aud so they had Iii working in tie Snow to stake out his claim and while to was about it he staked out a dozen. Whatever inspired him to so much Industry under such circumstances nobody knows. A Well after a Wiio tie Snow melted off and he found himself in Possession of a great Windrow of boulders about As unlikely a Prospect for a Gold mine As was Ever seen. But in a Blind sort of Way lie went to whacking at tie rocks Anil took some of Trio chunks to Trio assay office Anil the staff was declared to lie Worth $000 a ton. People could t believe it but other assays demonstrated that it was True nud the aimless Hobo in n fair Way to become a millionaire. News of Lis strike spread Aud there was a for bagged top Aud now there arc men scattered All Over the Region trying to secure locations of mines and there is a town site Boom und the railroads Are extending spurs into the country All the result of Tomt joke on the Hobo. A Otlie find contradicts theories of geologists and mineralogists but so much tiie worse for the theories. This Windrow of Gold bearing boulders lies right on top of u Deposit of Limestone and it is declared to be the Only known instance of such juxtaposition. The Rock is somewhat refractory hut is of such High Grade that it will pay to transport it anywhere for chlorination or smelting or any of the processes for treating such City journal. A.
