things you will illustrate that word courage and theywill go out from your presence to start anew and right challenging nil earth and hell to the i combat 1 There are four or five words which fitly

land where they can be struck with disease but where the inhabitant never nays f am sick not a reunion that can be followed by separation but in a place from which they shall go no more out forever

spoken well no fruit heaped up in sil ver baskets could equal it Of the 2000 kinds of apples that have blessed thejj1 worldnot one is so mellow or so rich or so aromatic but we take the sugges tion of the text and compare thntI word of comfort fitly spoken to al plegii of gold in baskets of silver There must be no impatience in the warning we give others We must realize that but for the kindness of God to us we would have buvii in the same rapids Thnt rnnn going wrong may be struggling with a tide of evil inherited from father and grandfather presents I temptation may be the accumulated force of generations and centuries Xo 3011 say his father was n good titan I knew him Hut did jouIknow his grandfather Evil habit is apt to skip one generation n fact i recognized in the Ten Commandments i which speak of the third and fourth generations but say nothing of the second generation 1 Or the man astray may have an unhappy home and that is enough to I wreck anyone We often speak ofImen who destroy their homes but do not say anything about the fact that there are thousands of wives in Amer tea who by petulance and fretting and economyrand all mannerfof disagreeableness 1 drive their husbands into dissipation The reason that thousands of men spend their oviuiugs in clubhouses and taverns is because they cannot stand it at home I know men who are 30year martyrs in the fact that t they are awfully married That marriage i was not made in Heaven Without 1 asking Divine guidance they en tered into an alliance which ought never to have been made That In what is the matter with many men you and I know They may be vcrj t brave and heroic amidsayl nothing about it but all the neighbors know Now if the man goint wrong has such domestic misfortune be very lenient and excusatory in your word of warn ing The difference between you and i hint may be that you wonld have gone down faster than he is going down if you had the same kind of conjugal wretchednessIn fine arts people are apt to speak of music and painting and sculpture and architecture but they forget to mention time finest of uhf time fine arts the art of doing good the art of helping others the art of string men An art to be studied as you study music for it is music in the fact that it drives out moral discord and substitutes eternal J harmonyan art to be studied like sculpture for it is sculpture in the fact that it builds a man not iu the cbid statue but in immortal shape that will last long after pentelican marble has crumbled an art to be studied as you study architecture for it IR architecture in the fact that it builds for him a house of God eternal v in the heavens but an art that we cannot fully learn unless God helps us Ourselves saved 03 grace Divine we can go forth to save others and with n tenderness and compassion and could not otherwise exercise a pity that ve we can pronounce the warning word with magnificent result The at Lord said to the prophet Amos Amos what secst thou And he answered A basket of summer fruit But T do not think Amos saw in that basket of summer fruit anything more inviting and luscious than many a saved man has seen in the hvanmur word of some hearty com mon sense Christian adviser ota word fitly spoken is like applec of gold in baskets of bherJJ So also is a word of invitation pp tent and beautiful Who can describe the drawing powor of that word so small and yet so tremendous Come l It is a short word but its influence te as long as eternity Not a sesqul pedalian word spreading its en ry over ninny syllables but mouosylB j bic Whether calling in

boor in it the tolling of all the bells of con flagrntion and woe The elder baker in prison in Pha mobs time saw in dream something quite different from apples of goWin bnskctsof silver for he said to Josaph 1 also was in a dream and behold had three white lIim1ets ou my bond and in the uppermost basket there 5 was nIl manner of baked meats for i Pharaoh and the birds did eat them J out of the baskets upon my hood t Joseph interpreted the dream and fniil it meant that the chief baker should be beheaded and the birds would eat his flesh But oh the power of that wor Come when aright uttered Ve 1 well when we send young men into schools nod colleges nnd theological seminaries and by nine years of in struct ion and drill hope o prepare them to sound aright that sweet and enrapturing nnd Heaven descended word Come The Gospel we be lieve in is n Goepel of Come That word speak all the churches That word is now building butfni eked coronets for kings and queens That word is to sound so

on until all nations hear it and accept its invitation Come Come It will not fall as Jid that of Moscow No storm can stop it No earthquake can rocket down When the fires of the last rlliJ blaze into
