Ill go home 1 will arise and go to my father I know theroII are a great many people who throw a fascination a romance a halo about sin but notwithstanding all that Lord Byron nnd George Sand havo said in regard to it it is n mean low contemptible business and patting food and fodder lute tho troughs ot a herd of iniquities that root and wallow in tho soul of man Is a very poor business for men and women intended to isons and daughters of tho Lord Almighty and when this young man resolved to go home it was a very wiso thing for him to do and tho only question is whether wo will follow him Satan promises large wages If wo will servo him but ho clothes his victims with rags nnd ho pinches them with hunger nnd when they start out to do better ho sots after I them all the blood hounds of hall Sa

circumstances If this iJ young man had been by his employer sot to culturing flowers or training vines over an arbor or keeping un ac count of tho pork market or overseeing other laborers ho would not have thought of going homo If he had had his pockets full of money If ho hail been able to say I have a thousand dollars now of my own whnts tho use of ray going back to my fathers house Do you think

amounts to nothing You must have a stout a treincndou resolution like this young turn of the text when ho said I will arise and go to my father Oh says some man how do I know mj father wants mo How do I know If I go back I would bo received Oh1 says some man you dont know whore I have boon you dont know how far II have wandered you wouldnt talk that way to me if you know all tho iniquities 1 have

was laid out which has been tho wonderment of all the years since tho wonderment of all engineers And you toll mo there are such mount ains of sin between your soul and God ChrIstII thoIthino iniquity There shall bo no Pyrenees there shall ho no Alps Again I notice tint this resolution of the young man of my text was founded in sorrow at his misbehavior It was not mere physical plight It was grief that he had so maltreated his father It is a sad thing after a father has done everything for a child to have that child ungrateful How sharper than a serpents tooth It Is To hnvo u thankless child That is Shakespeare A foolish son lis tho heaviness of his mother That is tho Ilible Well my friends have not some of us been cruel prodigals Unvo we not maltreated our Father And such a Father Three times a day has Ho fed thce llo has poured sun light into thy tiny and at night kindles up all tho street lamps of Heaven With what varieties of apparel Ho hath clothed theo for tho seasons Whose eye wntolieth theo Whoso hand defends thee Whoso heart sympathizes with thee Who gave you your chil dren Who Is guarding your loved ones departed Such a Father So loving so kind If Ho had been a stranger If Ho had forsaken us If Ho had flagellated us if He had pound ed us and turned us out of doors onI tho commons it would not have been so wonderful our treatment of Him but Ho is a Father so loving so kind and yet how ninny of us for our wanderings have never apologized If wo say anything that hurts our friends feelings if wo do anything that hurts tho feelings of thoso in whom wo are interested how quickly we apolizo Wo can scarcely wait until wo get pen and paper to write a letter of apology How easy it is for any om who Is Intelligent right hearted to write an apology or make an apology Wo apologize for wrong done to our fellows but somo of us perhaps have committed ten thousand times ten thousand wrongs against God and never apologized I remark still further that this resolution of the text was founded in a feeling of homesickness I do not know how long this young man how many months how many years he has been away from his fathers house but there Is something about tho reading of my text that makes mo think ho was homesick Somo of you know what that feeling is For away trm Jiomo sometimes surrounded by cacrythinjj bright and pleasant plenty of friends vou have said I would givo tho world to be homo tonight Well this fdunb man was homesick forhU fah crs house I bayo no doubt when he thought pf his lathers housd Tic said vow perhaps father may not be liv InPWr aTnolhTrig lH tMrttorjP r11iAJlrrII t wo read nothing about the mother It says nothing about going homo tQ her I think she was dead I think she had died of a broken heart at his wanderings or perhaps ho had gone Into dissipation from the fact that he could not remember a loving and sym pathetic mother A man never ratover having lost his mother Nothing said about liar but ho is homesick for his fathers house llo thought ho i wonId just like to go and walk around tho old place Ho thought ho would just like to go and see If things woro IUS they used to be Many a man after having been off u long while has gone home and knocked at tho dour and a stranger has come It iIn tho old home stead but u stranger comu to tho door Ho Uuds out father IsI gone and mother is gone and brothers and sisters all gone 1 think this young man of the text said to himself Perhaps tatter may bo dead Still Ira starts to find out Are there any hero today homesick for God homesick for Heaven A sailor after having been long on the sea returned to his fathers house and his mother tried to persuade him not to go away again She said Now you had better stay at house Dont go away Wo dont want you to go You will have It n great deal better here Hut It made him angry Tho night before ho wont away again to sea ho heard his mother praying in the next room and that made him more angry He went fur our on the sea and a storm came up and ho was ordered to very perilous duty and ho ran up tho ratlines and amid tho shrouds oj tho ship ho heard tho voice that ho hud heard in tho next room Ho tried to whistle it oil he tried to rally his eour ago but ho could not silence tho voice ho had heard in tho next room and there in tho storm and darkness he said Oh Lord what a wretch I have boon What a wretch I ami Help me just now Lord God And I thought in this assemblage today there may be somo who miry have tho memory of a fathers petition of n mothers prayer pressing mightily upon hoe soul and that this hour they may make the same resolution I and in my text saying II iwill arise and go to my fatherA It at Liverpool went out to bathe went out into tho sea went out too far got beyond his depth and he floated faraway A ship bound for Dublin came along and took him on board Sailors aro generally very generous fellows and one gave him a cap and another gave him a jacket and another gave him slices A gentleman passing along on the bench at Liverpool found tho lads clothes and took thorn homo and the father was heartbroken tho mother was heartbroken at the loss of her child They had heard nothing from him day after day and they ordered tho usual mourning for tho sad event Hut the lad took ship from Dub lin and arrived in Liverpool tho very day tho mourning IrrlV011 Ho knocked at tho door tho father was overjoyed and tho mothor was overjoyed at tho return of their lost son Oh my friends have you waded out too deep have you waded down into sin Have you waded from the shore Will you como back Will you como In the rags of your sin or will you como robed in the Saviours righteousness I believe the latterI Go homo to your God today Ho Iis waiting for you Go homol lint I remark tho characteristic of this resolution was it was immediately put into execution The context says ho arose and came to his father The trouble in 199 times out of 1000 is that our resolutions amount to nothing because wo slake them for somo dis taut time If I resolve to become a Christian next year that amounts to nothing at all If I resolvo to become a Christian tomorrow that amounts to nothing at all If I resolve at true ser vice this day to become a Christian that amounts to nothing at all If I resolve after I go homo today to yield my heart to God that amounts to nothing nt nil Tho only kind of resolution that amounts to anything Is tho resolution that is immediately put into execution There is a man who had the typhoid fever ho said Oh if I could got over this terrible distress if this fovor should depart if I could bo restored to health I would all the rest of my life servo God The fever departed Ho got well enough to walk around tho block Ho got well enough to go over to business Ho is well today as well as he ever was Where is tho broken vow There is a man who said long ago If I could lire to tho year 1690 by that time I will have my business matters all arranged and I will

has been roude by Ruthschitt and his tribe in Europe and their Wall street coadjutors in this country- It is nisi evident that those people have been for many years working Uf this corner and that the principal mean taken to accomplish their purpose have beon to induce the different nations of Europe and the Untied States to quit tho use of silver as a money metal of ul timato lolcmplion Their success has been remarkable nnd they stand today where they are nppar ently able to dictate the financial policy of every country in Europe anti now hold tho whip handle of the United States with power to rule or ruin at will We will present some plain facts about thh gold corner In MayI 189J the 3711 national banks in this country held to gold 205000000 they held in January lust but SllWOOO too In February 18Ui the litnkof England held in coin ami bullion 10V 883JOO on January 1 1S90 this had in created to 218793133 more than double In April 1892 the Hank of Franco held 230880000 which hud in mMHod to 379Gll632 on January 1 iXiii The accumulations in the Auntro Hungarian bank increased from 26031I 100 in 1SD2 to 118835064 in January 1890 Russia now hold f37138l 900 of of gold the Imperial Gennm bank of coin and bullion JI819970 and there has been an increase in most of the other countries of Europe In March 189J the United States treasury held I125815 MO of gold and on January 1 1890 but 49817997 Our national banks and the treasury had lost of gold from March 1 1892 to January 1 1890 the sum of 101909533 while tho gain to the Eu ropean blinks him been altogether In five years 501000000 Can there bo any doubt that the lossI to this country of gld holdings forms pnrt of tho gains shown in Europe Can it be doubted that tho S3ramble for gold is under full 1headway anti will continuo and grow moro fierce year by year until syndi rues governments nod Shylocka shall possess it IIor that the people who have it not will bo tit the mercy of thuoe who have it 1 If any

stated last month that the people do not pos Boys the gold curd did not wish to spec ulate Much ado isI made of the fact thnt the loan was oversubscribed nearly six times and tills is given as proof that the coun try is flushwith gold but the truth Iis tho bidders duplicated their bid nam ing two prices in many cases both hl11Il going to swell the aggregate though only one wan accepted The bonds wore sold at 111 while similar braids were selling in the market at 1 IX a fine mar gin of profit to the speculator which lie well knew He never miR a chance I like thnt Of tho 100000000 ovcr7S 900000

their purposes to bring to the surface in this country every little hoard of gold that exists gelI it into the United States treasury stool it and carry it off to Europe j for thisI will probably be the result It has been a common thing in tin United States to get up corners Some times it is in beef sometimes in wheat in transportation in fuel in pork in sugar nearly always in some necessary of
