In a former Sermon 1 showed you at some length that woman a position was higher in the world than mans and that although she had often been denied the right suffrage she always did vote and always would vote by her influence and that her chief desire ought to to that she should have Grace rightly to Rule in the Dominion which she has already won. 1 began an enumeration some her rights and this morning i resume the subject. In the first place woman has Tho special and the superlative rights not again going Back to what 1 have already said woman has the special and superlative right Blessing and comforting the sick.

The lord told me to go in and get it and he never sends me a fools again 1 have to Tell you that it is a woman a specific right to Comfort under the stress dire disaster. Rho is called the weaker vessel but All profane As Well As sacred history attests that when the crisis comes she is bettor prepared than Man to it meet the emergency. How often you have seen a woman who seemed to be a disciple frivolity and indolence who under one stroke calamity changed to a heroine. Of what a great mistake those business men make who never Tell their business troubles to their wives there comes some great loss to their store some their companions in business play them a sad trick and they carry the Burden All alone. He is asked in Tho household again and again what is the matter but he believes it a sort Christian duty to keep All that trouble within own soul. Of sir your first duty was to Tell your wife All about it. She perhaps might not have disentangled your finances extended your credit but she would have helped you to Bear misfortune. Rou have to right to carry Ono shoulder that which is intended for two. There Are business men Here who know what i mean. There came a crisis in your affairs. You struggled bravely and Long but after awhile there came a Day when you said a there i shall have to Stop a a and you called in your partners and you called in the most prominent men in your employ and you said a two have got to you left Tho store suddenly. You could hardly make up your mind to pass through the Street and Over the pc Rev boat. You Felt every body would be looking at you and blaming you and denouncing you. You hastened Home. You told your wife All about the affair. What did she say did she play the Butterfly did she talk about the Silks and ribbons and the fashions no. She came up to the emergency. Rio quailed not under tiie stroke. Rhe helped you to begin to plan right away. Rhe offered to go out the comfortable House into a smaller one and Wear the old cloak another Winter. Rhe was one who understood your affairs without blaming you. You looked upon what you thought was a thin weak woman sarm holding you up but while you looked at that Arm there came into the feeble Muscles it Tho strength the eternal god. chiding. fretting. telling you about the Beautiful House her father from which you brought her ten Twenty thirty years ago. Of said a Well this is the happiest Day my life. I am glad i have got from under my Burden. My wife done to care i done to at the moment you were utterly exhausted god sent a Deborah to meet the Host the am lekites and scatter them like chaff Over the Plain. There Are sometimes women who sit Reading sentimental novels and who wish that they had some grand Field in which to display their Christian Powers. Of what grand and glorious things they could do if they Only had an Opportunity my sister you need not wait for any such time. A crisis will come in your affairs. There will be a thermopylae in your own household where god will Tell you to stand. There Are scores and hundreds households to Day where As much bravery and courage Are demanded women As was exhibited by Grace Darling Marie Antoinette Joan arc. Again i remark it is woman a right to bring us to the kingdom heaven. It is easier for a woman to be a Christian than for a Man. Why you say she is weaker. . Her heart is More responsive to the pleadings divine love. Rhe is in vast majority. The fact that she can More easily become a Christian i can prove by the statement that three fourths the members the churches in All Christendom Are women. god appoints them to to the chief Agou cios for bringing this world Back to god. I May stand Here and say the soul is immortal. There is a Man who will refute it. I May stand Here and say we Aro lost and undone without Christ. There is a Man who will refute it. I May stand Here and say there will be a judgment Day after awhile. Yonder is some Ono who will refute it. But a Christian woman in a Christian household living in the Faith and Tho consistency Christ a gospel nobody can refute that. The greatest sermons Are not preached celebrated platforms they Are preached with an audience two three and in private Home life. A consistent consecrated Christian service is an unanswerable demonstration god s truth. A Sailor came slipping Down the rat line Ono night As though something had happened and the sailors cried a a what the matter a he said a my mothers prayers haunt me like a ghost Home influences consecrated. Christian Home influences Are the mightiest All influences upon the soul. Thero Are men bore to Day who Nave maintained their integrity not because Thero were Home influences praying for them All the time. They got a Good Start. They were launched Tho world with the benedictions a Christian Mother. They May track Ribe Rian snows they May plunge in african Jungles they May Fly to the Earth Send they can not go so and so fast but the prayers will keep up with them. I stand before women to Day who Hare the eternal salvation their husbands in their right hand. On the marriage Day you took an oath before men and Angels that you would to faithful and kind until death did you part and i believe you Are going to keep that oath hut after that parting at the door the grave will it be an eternal separation is there any such thing As an immortal mar Ridge making the Flowers that grow the top the sepulchre brighter than the garlands which at the marriage banquet flooded the air with arms yes i stand Here As a priest the most High god to proclaim Tho bans an immortal Union for All those who join hands in the Grace Christ. Of woman is your husband your father your son away from god the lord demands their redemption at 3our hands. There Are prayers for you to offer there Are exhortations for you to give there Are examples for you to set and i say now As Paul said to the corinthian woman a what know est thou woman but thou canst save thy husband a a Man was dying and he said to wife a Rebecca you let me have family prayers and you laughed about All that and you got me away into worldliness and now i am going to die and my Fate is sealed and you Are the cause my ruin a woman what know est thou but thou canst destroy thy husband Are there not some Here who have kindly influences at Home Are there not some Here who have wandered away from god who can remember Tho Christian influences in their Early Home do your mothers prayers with your wife s minor unities with Yotter sister s entreaties a hat will you do with the letter they used to write to you. With the memory those Days when they attended you so kindly in times sickness if there be just one strand holding you from floating off that dark sea i would just like this morning to take hold that strand and Puu you to the Beach. For the Sake your wife a god for the Sake your Mother s god. For the Sake your daughter s god for the Sake your sister s god come this Day and be saved. Lastly i wish to say that one the specific rights woman is through the Grace Christ finally to reach heaven. Of we hat a multitude women in heaven i Mary Christ s Mother in heaven Elizabeth Fry in heaven Charlotte Elizabeth in heaven the Mother Augustne in heaven Tho countess Huntington who sold her splendid jewels to build chapels in heaven while a great Many others who have never been heard Earth known but Little have Gono into the rest and peace heaven. What a rest what a change it was from Tho Small room with no fire and one window the Glass broken out and the aching Side and worn out eyes to tie a House Many mansions a no More stitching until twelve clock at night no More thrusting the thumb by the employer through Tho work to show that it was not done Quito right. Plenty bread at last. Heaven for aching Heads heaven for broken hearts heaven for anguish bitten frames. More sitting up until Midnight for the coming staggering Steps. More rough blows across the temples. More Sharp keen bitter curses. Romo you will Liao no rest in this world. It will to toil and struggle and suffering All Tho Way up. You will have to stand at your door fighting Back the Wolf with your own hand red with carnage. But god has a Crown for you. 1 want to realize this morning that he is now making it and whenever you weep a tear he sets another Gem in that Crown whenever you have Pang body soul he puts another Gem in that Crown until after a while in All the Tiara there will he no room for another splendor Aud god will say to Hyisung Cluj a the Crown is done let her up that she May Wear and As Tho lord righteousness puts the Crown upon your brow Angel will cry to Angel a who is she a and Christ will say a i will Tell you who she is. Rhe is the one that Camo up out great tribulation and had her Robe washed and made White in the blood the Honor in Trade. An article for the consideration Young men engaged in business. A year two ago an old French merchant died who for half a Century had carried a Large retail business in new York Philadelphia and one two Southern cities with marked Success. His methods were Peculiar. clerk Salesman was permitted to urge recommend any goods offered for Sale. He was to show the article and Stato the Price. The customer thus bought at own risk. The merchant did not cheat but if the buyer cheated himself he did not interpose. Another merchant a Scotchman in a Virginia City pursued a still More unusual plan. He would warn an ignorant customer if the cloth she was about to buy was not made the Best material if the Chintz would fade if the hat was no longer quite fashionable. His Maxim was that the tradesman and customer should he friends not antagonists trying to overreach each other. A consequence Many goods remained unsold. But customers finding that they could place absolute Reliance word crowded into shop Aud bought honest goods at an honest profit. A the so called a systems Trade a says a recent writer a Marc based upon dishonesty. The grower who Sells adulterated sugar vitriol vinegar at the same rates As the Puro articles the Butcher who sends inferior meat to the ignorant housekeeper the clerk who urges unsaleable articles at High prices country buyers Are breaking the Law a thou Sliaut not steal a As much As the Pink pocket. Who pilfer a a convict at one our state prisons lately wrote to the Warden a i was sentenced for stealing. 1 am now employed in making shoes and am ordered to insert two sheets thick paper in the soles and to color them to imitate leather. Is this the Way in which you Reform thieves a in Norway it is said some travellers last summer inadvertently left a Gold headed umbrella hanging a tree beside a much frequented Road and found it untouched after two Days. Every Man woman and Hihl who passed that Way helped to earn this Noble character for the whole District. Every boy who goes into Trade and firmly carries out the pure strict principles honesty which he finds in Bible will not Only live a Noble life but will help to earn for America a character for uprightness and Honor which her enemies lately have hoped that she would l Outh a companion. Concerning marriage. Why it is no longer an entirely Ono sided bargain. Marriage is still Only too often a bargain but at least it is no longer an entirely sided bargain. It is tending toward the Only True Ideal lifelong companionship a partnership equal terms with equal give and take both sides. A Omen no longer feel bound to Render that implicit obedience which was considered let Ritj cur in our great grandmothers Days and men no longer universally demand it. Husbands moreover Are beginning to learn that their prime duty is not a to look after their wives. The very sentence is indie native the most ghastly misapprehension tiie whole Ideal Matrimony. The general feeling society condemns a Man who lives to Rule wife the same principles As a Pasha rules harem. And indeed the whole scheme modern life makes it practically impossible for to do so. A married woman enjoys As a Rule Complete Liberty during the lifelong Day and even at night it is frequently impossible for a Busy Man to escort wife. Thus every thing turns the relations a tween tha married couple. If a girl is really in love with the Man she marries she May he trusted with any amount subsequent Freedom. If not not and therefore we say that the injudicious and worldly parents who Are responsible for the great major it ill assorted unions Are also responsible for the Many evil results which Are to be seen in society it this Day. For it is a fact that rows English girls Are As much forced into marriage As the French girl whose husband is selected while she is yet in her Convent not by main Force not but by the whole tone her education by the exaggerated fear being an old maid by the obvious necessity making Way for a younger sister by the persistent scheming her parents and by her own longing for emancipation.
