Copyright 1001 by Louts Klopgch XTJ In this discourse Dr Talmage sounds the praises of the worlds Redeemer and puts before us the portraits of some of His great disciples and exponents text John 3 31 HeII that cometh from above is above The most conspicuous character of history steps out upon the platform The linger which diamonded with light pointed down to Him from the Bethlehem sky was only a ratification of the finger of prophecy the finger of enlalochronologybthe finger of eventsall five fingers pointing in one direction Christ isI the overtopping figure of all time He is the vox humana in all music the gracefulest line in all sculpture the most exquisite mingling of lights and shades in all painting the acme of all climaxes the dome of all cathedraled i grandeur and the peroration of all splendid language The Greek alphabet is made up of- t letters and when Christ compared Himself to the first letter and the last letter the alpha and the omega lie appropriated to Himself all the splen dors that you can spell out with those two letters and all the letters between them I am the alpha and the omega the beginning and the end the first and the last or if you prefer the words of the text above all It means after you have piled up all Alpine and Himalayan altitudes the glory of Christ would have to spread its wings and descend a thousand leagues to touch those summits Pclion a high mountain of Thessaly Ossa a high mountain and Olympus a high mountain but mythology tells us when the giants warred against the gods they piled up these three moun tains and from the top of them proposed to scale the heavens but the height was not great enough and there was a complete failure And after all the giantsIsaiah and Paul prophetic and apostolic giants I Raphael and Michael Angelo artistic giants cherubim and seraphim and archangel celestial giants have failed 1toclimb to the top of Christs glory they may all well unite in the words of the text and say He that cometh front above is above all Tirst Christ must be above all else in our preaching There are so ninny books on homiledcs scattered trough the world that all laymen as well as all clergymen have made up their minds what sermons ought to effectualtipointedly puts forth Christ as the pardon of all sin and the cor rection of all evil individual social political national There is no reason why we should ring the endless changes 1n a few phrases There are those who think that if an exhortation or a discourse have frequent mention of justification sanctification covenant of works and covenant of grace that therefore it must be profoundly evan gelical while they are suspicious of a discourse which presents the same truth but under different phraseology Now I say there is nothing in all the opulent realm of AngloSax ouism or all the word treasures that AVC inherited from the Latin and the Greek and the IndoEuropean but we religiousdiscussion examplenigrass the flowers the spittle the salve the barnyard fowl the crystals of salt as well as from the seas and the stars and we do not propose in our Sunday school teaching and in our pulpit ad dress to be put on the limits I know that there is a great deal said thoughtheymisused but they have an imperial power They are the bridge between soul and soul between Almighty God and the human race What did God write upon the tables of stone Words

Gospel themes Song has no melody flowers have no sweet ness sunset sky has no color com pared with these glorious themes These harvests of grace spring up quicker than we can sickle them Kindling pulpits with their fire and producing revolutions with their power lighting up dying beds with their glory they are the sweetest thought for the poet and they are the most thrilling illustration for the orator and they offer the most in tense scene for the artist and they are to the embassador of tlC sky all enthusiasm Complete pardon for theI direst guilt Sweetest comfort forI ghastliest agony Brightest hope for grimmest death Grandest resurrec tion for darkest sepulcher Oh what a Gospel to preach Christ over all in it His birth His suffering His miracles His parables His sweat His tears His blood His atonement His intercessionwhat glorious themes Do we exercise faith Christ is its object Do we have love It fastens on Jesus Have we a fondness for the church It is because Christ died for it Have we a hope of Heaven It is because Jesus went ahead the herald auc the forerunner The royal robe of Demetrius was so costlyso beautiful that after he had put it off no one ever dared put it on but this robe of Christ richer than that the poorest and the wan nest and the worst may wear Oh my sins mysins said Martin Luther to Staupitz my sins my sins The fact is that the brawny German student had found a Latin Bible that had made him quake and nothing else ever did make him quake and when he found how through Christ he was pardoned and saved he wrote to a friend saying Come over and join us great and awful sinners saved by the grace of God You seem to be only a slender sinner and you dont much extol the mercy of God but we who have been such very awful sinners praise His grace the more now that we have been redeemed Can it be that you are so desperately egotistical that you feel yourself in firstrate spir itual trim and that from the root of the hair to the tip of the toe you are starless and immaculate What you need iis a looking glass and here it is in the Bible Poor and wretched etui miserable and blind and naked from the crown of the head to the sole of the foot full of wounds and putrefying sores Xo health in us And then take the fact that Christ gathered up all the notes against us and paid them and then offered us the receipt And how much ve need Him in our sorrows We are independent of cir graceWhy geon and under that grace St John from desolate Patmos heard the blast of the apocalyptic trumpets After all other candles have been snuffed out this is the light that gets bright er and brighter unto the perfect day and after under the hard hoofs of calamity all the pools of worldly en joyment have been trampled into deep mire at the foot of the eternal rock the Christian from cups of granite lily rimmed and vine covered puts out the thirst of his soul A thousand feet underground blight of torch toiling in a miners shaft a ledge of rock may fall upon us and we may die a miners death Far out at sea falling from the slip pery ratlines and broken on the hal yards we may die a sailors death On mission of mercy in hospital amid broken bones and reeking leprosies philanthropists battle serving our God and our coun try slugs through the heart the gun carriage may roll over us and we may die a patriots death But after all there are only two styles of de parture the death of the righteous and of the wicked and we all want to die the former God grant that when that hour comes you may be at home You want the hand of your kindred in your hand You want your children to surround you You want the light on your pillow from eyes that have long reflected your love You want the room still You do not want any curious strangers standing around watching you You want your kindred from afar to hear your last prayer I think that is the wishof all of us But is that all Can earth ly friends hold us when the billows of death comeup to the girdle Can human voice charm open Heavens gate Can human hands pilot us through the narrows of death into Heavens harbor Can an earthly friendship shield us from the arrows of death and in the hour when Satan shall practice upon us his infernal archery No no Alas poor soul if that is all Better die in the wil derness far from tree shadow and far from fountain alone vultures circling through the air waiting for our body unknown to men and to have no burial if only Christ would say through the solitudes I will never leave thee I will never forsake this From that pillow of stone a I SliT V ladder

over her hilds organization that her forethought can shield it to a largo extent front the effect of its fathers physical defects as well ns from her own says Florence Hull Vin1crburn in Womans Moon Companion A mother should therefore keep her own feelings in such a healthful condition that their strength shall not degenerate She should cultivate hope and aspiration courage anti cheerful ness avoiding those feverish ambi tions and anxieties which waste nerve substance rapidly Steady and cheerful application to duty the practice of temperance kindliness and generosity are the bright flame in the mother soul which shall give heat and light to the better nature of her unborn child Should she not attach herself to what is beautiful and good when th beliefs and wishes of a single day in her life may echo down the ages This is simply an imperative ilutv that hoe owes to herself to her child and to society Some day let us hope the world will understand this mutter and then mothers will

lit Hcttirn The less you exact of your friends the more they will give you writes Helen Wat torsion Moody of The First Tragedy in a Girls Life in Ladies Home Journal For yourself give as= richly and as nobly as you want to of your love and your confidence and your loyalty Live up to your highest ideal of what a friend should be and the higher you make that ideal the finer woman you will be and the more friends will flock to you but never exact of your friends that they shall hive you more than they choose easily to give If some one you love disap points you and as many many more will do in days tto come do not holdup your ideal of what they should be and do as a mirror in which to count their imperfections Let it pass if you can with a little smile that may be sad hut need not he at all satirical And never lie jealous of a friend if you want to keep one If anybody you are loath of forms other friendships or seems tc be engrossed with other friends dc not let it make you unhappy and above all never utter comment upon her all too evident neglect of her old friends for her new ones- Cultivate a Sense of Humor If you are fortunate enough to have even the germ of a sense of uh mor cherish that carefully It is the very salt and savor of life Learn to smile over the foibles of your friends loving them none the less but more because of their little weaknesses Do not take people too seriously and above all do not take yourself too seriously You are only an atom in an incomprehensible universe after all Why find fault during your brief mo ment with the other atoms by your side

theory is that protection should be granted only in eases where a new industry can be created within a reasonable time On the other hand we are now told that the manufacture of beet sugar iis already a commercial I success in the United States And froth this the conclusion is drawn that we t protect it Of course we under stand that the theory is that an industry may not be established strongly enough to resist foreign competii tion I5ut the time octet conies when the men engaged in a protected industry will admit that it is estab lisped beyond thin need of further fostering care In the
