OUR REGULAR SUNDAY SERMON.
A Powerful Appeal For the Higher and
Better Life We All Should Lead.
Brooklyn, N. Y.-The Rev. Robert
Collver. the (,Idest Unitarian pastor
in G reater New York. preached in the
Second I nitaria Chuirch. Clinton and
Congress streets. Sunday morning. His
last ap'warance in that church was last
fall. when he delivered an address on
the late Rev. I)r. John White Chad
wick, the former pastor. who had just
died. The oloquent preacher took for
his text: Genesis xxxiii:13-14. "The
children are tender: I wiUl lead on soft
ly." and said:
It was one of the see'ets of ry craft,
in the old days when I wanted to weld
iron or work steel to a tine purpose.
to begin gently. If I began as all
learners do, to strike my heaviest blows
at the start, the iron would crumble
instead of welding. or the steel would
stiffer tnder my hammer. s'o that,
when it caine to be tempered it would
*fly," as we used to say. and rob the
thing I had nade of its fitest quality.
it was the first condition of a good
job to begin gen:ly. later I could strike
with a lirmer hand. and in the cad pour
out all my might in a storm of sturdy
I blnws; but if I began so it ended, as a
rule. with a wreek. The perfection of
the Nasmyth hammer lies in the blend
ilg of its gentleness and its ponderous
might. so ihat it can coite down as
gently as a June shower or smite like a
tornado, according to'the need of the
moment. So the skillful mechanic
starts new machinery. a locomotive,
a steamt engine or even a sewing ma
chine. 'citly. It is the first condition
of keeping the balance true that the
machine shall not tear away at first
at ligh pressure. I noticed the same
in the building up of a grand organ.
The builder began gently in bringing
out its harmonies. vith some tine
chords, made those true and went
on to the othe:s. and so wrought
on to thc ud. Again an animal trainer

So I love to note such things as these
as I watgh the perpetual advent of

start thevm to the surest purpose and
train them so as to bring out the
whole power for good which God has
hidden in their nature. There must be
one right way, and I think this father
found it when he said: "The children
are tender; I will lead tlicm on softly."
They may seem ('rude. mere machines
or little brutes: there are some men
who seem by their actions to have
such notions of a child's nature, to
their eternal shame. Here is the prin
ciple: They are tender: we must lead
them on softly. Solomon may slip in
with his cruel maxim of "Spare the rod
and spoil the child." He has no busi
ness about my place while my children
are tender. I can no more be hard
on them than Jesus could. If I hurt
them in this evii way I hurt those.
who are of the kingdom of H-eaven.
My white hairs have brought me this
wisdom: That the unpardonable sin
is to be hard on a tender child. I do
not wonder that the old granidsire is so
ge-ntle with the second generation. He
will not tell you, or himself, perhaps.
why he is, but he would .fain recaill
some passages of his fatherhood. but
that cannot be done. so he chokes back
the inextinguishable regret and humbly
tries to get even through the over
measure. My7 good inothe was some
thing of a Sparta na very gentle
Spartan, with her c'hildr'en. but it was
wonderfully beautiful to see her in
her old age spreading her wide. grand,
motherly wings over the children of
the new day. She could ino more be
hard upon them, no matter 'what
pranks they played, than youir Mlay
sun can be hard upon your M1ay blos
som. It was the return of the heart
to the soft answer. the sweet submis
sion to the better plan. the vision of
the infinite worth of gentle ways with
tender folk, the endeavor, unknown to
herself. to ease her dear old heart of
what little pain there was front the
old days, the feeling that perhaps she
might have gone more softly once.

When we quote the Scripture: "Train
up a child in the way he should go," we
must still take heed to our ways lest
we think more of the Scripture than
we think of the child-fix our mind and
purpose on the other rather than the
hither end of the way and train him
for what he should be at forty rather
than what he must be in childhood and
youth. We must answer for what is
written in the book of the life of our
children. I must lay the patriarch's
gentle purpose to my heart: "The
children ar;e tender. I will lead on

"Thou Art My Light."
A touching incident was narrated by
Dr. R. F. Horton on the second Sunday
after his return from months of treat
ment by a celebrated German oeulist.
He was waiting in the oculists con
sulting room, not knowing whether or
not the remainder of his life was to
be passed in darkness, when he put his
hand into his pocket and drew out his
little Bible-not to read it. but to see if
he could. As he opened it his eyes fell
on the text:
--For Thit~ are my lamp, 0 Lord:
and the Lord will lighten my dark
"I had not been aware of the very
existence of this text," he said. '-and
I do not know who but an angel could
have led me to it; but I felt that,
whether I received my sight or not,
those words were enough for me. and
from that time I seemed to know that
I should continue to proclaim the words
of this blessed Book."
- Duty Above Life.
Life is a matter of very small ac
count to any one in comparison with
duty-doing, whether a man realizes
this truth or not. Whatever is worth
living for is worth dying for, if dying
be an incident to its pursuing. When
the Roman General, Pompey, was
warned against the danger of his re
turning from Egypt to Italy. to meet
a new trouble in his own land, his
her-ole answer was: "it is a small mat
ter that I should more forwvard and
dije. I-t is too great a matter that I
should take one step backwar-d and
live."' Life is never well lived when
it is held dea ret- than duty. He who
would tell a lie in order to live is will
ing to pay a great deatl larger price for
his life than that life is worth to him
self-or to others.--H. C. Trumbull.

Kings 18: 14-16). "Sennacherib." The
I son and successor of Sargon. He says
be built towers around Jerusalem and
shut Hezekiah in "like a caged bird."
"Assyria." This was a great and pow
erful country lying' on the Tigris. Its
boundaries differed greatly at different
periods. "Send his servants." See 2
Kings IS: 17. Tartan. or general; the
rabsaris, the chief of the eunichs: and
the rab-shakeh. the chief cup-bearer,
these being the offices which their
names imply, with a great host. None
of these are proper names. Tarta
was the ordinary title of an Assyrian
general. They were to demand the In
conditional surrender of the king and
capital. "To Jerusalem." Sennacherib
,was encamped before Lachish, thirty
miles southwest of Jerusalem. seated
in state. From this proud positior he
sent a large detachment to Jerusalem.
They took up their position on the
north of the city. on a spot long after
wards known as the camp of the Assy
rians. Hezekiah feared to appear: or
perlips, careful of his dignity, he sent
otlicers of his court. who were nearer
the rank of those sent. In his place
came Eliakim, now thief minister:
Shebna. now in the office of secretary:
and Joah. the royal historian. *AII his
power." All- his army.

ally. "Whereon are ye trustinr and sit

liance with Egypt. Assyria's arch-en
eiy: :nd reference is here made to
this. 11. "Doth not Hezekiah." Hez
ekiah is abI used most vilely antad over
whelmned wvith scorn and insult. 12.
"Worship before one altar." Rab-sha
kelh was not familiar wiith the Jewish
lw. a id he na1turally sposed that
the destruction of so many altars
would incur tl~e displeasure of tlt
gods: but the ireason he gave to prove
that .Tudah was weak was the very rea
son why (od was with them to make
themll strong. 1:1-5. "Know ye not."
etc. This boast was natural. The As
syrianus had had an uninterrupted .'
l'eer of success and might well believe
that their grods were more powerful
than those of the nations around them.
They had utterly over-run and de
stroyed the kindred tribes of Galilee,
Gilead and Sainaria. They had for
years exercised lordship over Judea.
and the very kinlg who now defied
them had purchased his sa fety by ilie
payment of a heavy fine. 1G. "Against
the Lord." Hezekiah treated this
bhispheimous speech :s lie ought. He 1
refers tile inatter to .lehovah.
17. "Wrote also letters." A little
later another insulting messa:ge in thr
form of "a letter" (R. V.. margiM was
sent. The king took the letter anld at

Lord. He spread out the letter before

wrote his letter. ".Jews' spee~'h." The
Hlebrew Iangunage. T1he Syriau hmIan

mon people. "To affrmighit thenm." It
w-as a day of gr'eat suspense. Already
there was a rumor that the king of
Egypt was on his way to tl e rescue.
Senacherib had heard the rumor, anda
it w~as this which caused him to put C
forth every elfor't to intimidate .Terusa
lemi into submission. 19. "Spake

between the .Tehio-:Lih of the Jews and
the gods of the other nations. I

Hezekiah rent his clothes and put on
sackcloth and went to the house of

The prayer expressed the deepest need.
the highest faith, the utmost earnest-i
ness. the wisest plea, thme highest mo

But they not only prayed, they worked.
The king built walls aind towers, and
