fireiitcwt 1 Ulintnolc to Hevlvulw In nu j LucouverttMl Ministry 1 tCopyright 1901 by Louts KloDSch N Y l This discourse of Dr Talmage is most pertinent at this time when a widespread effort for religious awak cuing is being made text Luke verse G They inclosed a great multitude of fishes und their net brake Simon and his comrades had experi eared the night before what fishcrine- call poor luck Christ steps on boardI the fishing smack find tells the sailors t to pull away from the beach and di rects them again to sink the net Sure j enough very soon the net is full of 1ishti and the sailors begin to haul in So large a school of fishes was taken that the hardy men began to look red in the face as they pull and hurdle have they begun to rejoice at their suc i iees when snap goes a threat of till t tnetand snap goes another thread so 1 1 1thereis danger not only of losing the i iish but of losing the net t Without much care as to how much i the boat tilts or how much water ia splashed on deck the fishermen rush i iabout gathering up tthe broken meshesI I of the net Out yonder there is a ship dancing on the wave and they hail it Ship ahoy Bear down this way The ship conics and both boats both iishing smacks are filled with the t tfoinuleriitg treasresAc uAh says some one how much better it would have been if they had staid onshore and fished with a hook t suit line and taken one at a time in stead of having this great excitement and the boat almost upset and the net 1 broken and having to call for help and getting sopping wet with the sea I The church iis the boat the Gospel is the net society is the sea and a great revival is a whole stool brought in at one sweep of the net 1 have ad miration for that man who goes out with a took and line to fish 1 admire the way he unwinds the reel and ad justs the bait and drops the hook in a quiet place on a still afternoon ind lure catches one and there one but I like also a big boat and a large crew c end a net a mile long and swift one andca hrollg1ttsoI1 great a multitude that you have got straningII must unt t here and there letting a few escape hut bringing the great multitude into eternal safety In other words 1 believe in revivals i begaiin n one day and it will close twit lido or n hundred mullion people saved ill 24 hours when nations shall be born in a day But there are objections to re vivals People are opposed to them t liecausc the net might get broken and if by the pressure of souls it does not get broken then they take their own penknives nail slit the net They in closed a great multitude of fishes and the net brake Ilf Jt iis sometimes opposed to revivals religion that those who come into the church at such tunes Go not hold1 out As long as there isa gale of bless i ifugthey have their sails up Hut as soon as strong winds zop blowing I then they drop into a dead calm But what are the facts in Jie ease In alll 1 our churches the vast majority of the useful people are those wlultarc brought in und r great awakenings and they hold out Who are the jrrom inept men in the United States u churches in prayer meetings in inII bath schools FurI the most part theyI are the product of great awakenings i have noticed that those who are Drought into the Kingdom of Cot through revivals have more per sistencei and more determination in theI Christian life than tfiose oho conic in under a low state of religion Pro jle born in an icehouse may live hut they will never get over the cold they caught in the icehouse A canon ballI depends upon the impulse with whirl it starts rots how far it shall go and1 how xwiftland the greater threrival force with which a soul isstutltI the more farreaching and farresound ing will be the execution rti r rivals that there insomuch excitement that people mistake hysteria for relig ion We admit that in every revival of religion there is either a suppressed r a demonstrated excitement Indeed if a man can go out of a state of condemnation into a state of acceptance with God or SIC others go without any ngitation of soul he is in an unhealthy morbid state and is as repulsive andI absurd as a man who should boast he taw a child snatched out from under ai horses hoofs and felt no agitation or saw a man rescued from the fourth story of a house on fire and felt no ac celeration of the pulses Salvation from sin and death anti hell into life and peace and Heaven forever is such n tremendous thing that if a wan tells me he can lookon iit without any agitation 1 doubt hisi t Christianity The fact iqi that sonic i times excitement is the

of the wheel trying to block their progress We will not stop the chariot but we ourselves will bet ground to powder lint l think after all the greatest obstacle to revivals throughout Christendom is an unconverted minis try We must believe that the vast majority of those who olliciate at sacred altars are regenerated but I suppose there may float into the ministry of all the denominations ofofChristians tarn whose hearts have never been changed by grace They are all antagonistic to revivals How did they get into the ministry Ier haps some of them chose it as arc spectablc profession

the Star not long ago copies i from a New York paper said alady living near Oreeley Pike county Pa relates the Washington Star a story about an apple tree blossoming in Oc tober and the fatal result of it The story was told us coming from a man and he said that an apple tree at hisll home had blossomed ten years before in October and shortly afterward his wife had died It had not blossomed again in October for several years and then within a month his mother hadtdied Then there was another lapse and when he told the story which was about the 1st of October the tree was again in blossom and he was great ly disturbed as to what was going to happen next Well that story was mine and the reporter put it in the name of a man because I didnt want to appear in it Two weeks after I had told the story to a party of friends in which the re porter was I went back home and within a week the house took fire and burned to the ground It was so sudden that we barely managed to get out with our lives and our chief articles of apparel were bathrobes and blank ets It was a country place and we hadno means of putting out the ire 4s0 everything was lost The only con solation we have is that the fatal apple tree stood 10 close to the house that it was burned to a crisp and it at least will never again be the messenger of bad luck however much other trees may bring with their October blossoms One thing I am sure of I was never superstitious before but I con fess to a little of it now and I never want to see another apple tree bloom ing in October if it belongs to me f WAS A BORN FIGHTER i Prfae Christian Victor Did NM PreI erne am iris Delay eC f Royal Blood f r The grandson of Queen Victoria Prince Christian Victor who diedof fever in South Africa a few weeks ago was a soldier born who owed nothing to rank but obtained his advance in recognition of his military ability He knew everything about Tommy Atkins from the enlisting fees down to theicanteen extortions which he labored i to abolish In his room at Winchester might be found nearly double the number of books on tactics and drill usually rd found in an officers quarters and the majority were well thumbed But he was no prig lie enjoyed every hour t of his life except that he was much tampered by insufficient private means and his brother officers and his LondonfpaperHe once told Lord Wolseley that the Jcinly advantage he ever derived from his royal rank was that it always got him accepted when he volunteered for attire service In the last ten years he served in six campaigns a rare rec i ordand he constantly obtained dew served recognition for valor Somehow commanding officers never felt ham pered when they had him under their command as was too often the case when a royal prince insisted on
