But there is another way to again
offer the sacrament of service than by
giving food to eat and raiment to put
on: It is suggested by the last half of
the text: "And every one said to his I
brother. 'Be of good courage.'" There
are men and women in this world- who
need an encouraging word more than
they need bread. Man does not live
by bread alone. There are men on our
streets who have been unfortunate int
their lives. They are pessimistic and
discouraged and distrust all the world.
There are others who are in some vo
cation which does not measure up to
their ambition, and they need to have
some one tap them on the shoulder and
say. "Be of good courage." There are I
a good many men who become discour- 3

There are many who need to be met I

and to their families. They need words
of strength. Their wills are weak and I
must be reinforced. They need to be s
inoculated with courage, and the power
to resist evil.
Very few of us realize how much
help there is in a handshake when I
given in a brotherly way. One of W el- I
lington's officers when commanded to i
go on some perilous duty, lingered a
moment, as if afraid, and then said: t
"Let me have one clasp of your all
conquering hand before I go, and thenJ
I can do it." The majority of the t
needy ones of earth ask not for ouri
money, but for our sympathy, and our t
sympathy we ought to give. "Somet
one ought to do it, but why should I?"I
should be turned into the sacrificial ?
sentiment. "Some one ought to do it.s

always gave him when they met, for

all the meaning in your soul, "Be ofI
good courage," will often make him a
moral giatnt and suffer him to rise
above his difficulties and his shortcom-t
ings. There are very few persons who I
do not need words of encouragement,
who do not need to have some one say I

'Mr. Lo-rd had a good audience, in,.l
preactd an excellent sermon. His
subject was "Tlie Sacrament of Ser
vice." The text was from Isaiah xli:t:
"They helped every rue his neighbor.
and every one said to his brother. 'Be
of 'good courage.'" Mr. Lord said:
We have been pasing rapidly in the
last half century from an individual
istic to a social type of civilization.
Paul's words were never more true
than to-day. when he said, "None of us
liveth to himself. and no man dieth to
himself." All the forces and factors
pertainin- to human life-mechanfwal.
social and religions-have been moving
to such a degree toward each other
that the twentIeth century can say that
the one word which will serve her best
for a watchword is "Together; togeth
In the industrial world the concen
tration of forces is most manifest. Dr.
.Tosiah Strong calls to mind how that
fifty years ago it waa the age of home
spun. Families could meet all the
needs of their households. spinning.
weaving and the making of garmenis.
The fields about fhe home supplied the
inmates with the necessities of life.
Then it was that the main force was
the br'awny arm. But to-day manufac
ture has forsaken the home for the
mill and the factory, and steam and
electricity are the regnant forces. Di
vision of labor has taken the place of
the single hand. Then one man made
many things; now many men make one
But as industrially. so socially are
we becoming more intimately related.
A half century ago there were com
munities, many but small in number
and limited in advantages, yet complete
in themsalves. Citizens seldom went
beyond the borders of their respective
towns. But gradually those communi
ties have been groupe1 imto towns. and
the towns developed into cities and the
cities into greater cities. Whereas our
fathers were independent of all the
world. we are more or less dependent
on the whole world. This made Robert
Louis Stevenson exclaim. "It is really
disheartening how we depend on other
people in this life."
This complex life has given rise to a
great many social and fraternal or
ganizations. Men have banded them
selves together for mutual helpfulness.
Fathers. working by the week and
for small wages. having little enes de
pending upon them, have serious
thoughts when ihey realize that sick
ness may be lying in wait for them
and short hours may be their lot.
When the head of the family is sick
and unable to work. the income ceases,
but expenses increase. To meet all
these possibilities the various beneve
lent societies and fraternal organiza
tions have come into existence.
It is every man's duty to consider not
only the present demands of the fam
ily, but its future welfare. It is a
crime for a father to spend his money
freehanded at the bar, or in hospitality
at the club, or squander it in sports,
when he has not, either in the savings
bank or in insurance, made secure the
future welfare of his family. It is
every mtan's duty to endow the future
with as good a livelihood for his fam
ily as lies in his power.
We heartily sympathize with frater
nities and societies in their sick bene
fits and care of widows and fatherless
childre.- Trhey have a mission in soci
ety. lit. however commendable they
m'ay be. they must not take the place
of the two divine institutions-the
home :and tbet churchI. There is but one
place where God has set up the altar
of domestic affection, where conjugal
relations are sanctified by the presence
of children, and that is the home; and
there is but one institution which the
son of God ordained while upon earth,
and that is the Christian church. Fra
ternal organizationis should be supple
ments, but never attempt to be substi
tutes for the home or the church.
But we cannot say that because life
is becoming more highly organized it
can be lived more easily. On the other
band. we are inclined to say that the
closer mens relations are the greater
the friction and the more difficult to
have every event work good to every
person. This kind of life, I repeat, is
far better but more difficult to live in
all its relations. The tone of a three
or five bank organ is much better,
richer, more sympathetic and harmoni
ous than the tone of a cabinet organ.
In the one there are few combinations,
while in the other there are hundreds.
'An amateur can play the one, but only
the master organist can play the other
satisfactorily. So in these times of
highly developed social and relgious
life it is difficult to live a full, rounded
Christian Ufe. A company of people
spread over a large area can get along
comfortably well, but crowded into a
small inclosure they will suffer em
barrassment. They all have elbows,
and where it Is ideal to march through
life, touching elbow to elbow, it is not
so comfortable when men are cramped
and their elbows touch one another
under the arms. Our whole social life
is, therefore, a question of elbows
This leads us naturally to the ques
tion, How can life be lived so as to ful
fill all these manifold relations The
answer is fom?~l in the words of the
text, "They helped every one his neigh
bor and every one said to his brother,
'Be of good courage.'" I wish these
words might be placed over the doors
of every church. inscribed upon the
walls of every place of worship and
selected as a watchword for every
charitable organization. What a
chiangd world this would be if the sen
timent of this text should go into effect
to-morrow morning. The words sug
gest to us two( ways by which we may
administer the sacrament of service.
Humanity is in constant need of help.
The circle of suffering and misfortune
is all the while changing. but it never
happens to be empty. In spite of the
fact that we are a rieu country and
are living in times of plenty, there a.re
children in every city in need of bread,
and e'derly people in need of support
and comfort, it is no disgrace to he

Shapes the Destiny of

Seven-eighths of the
men in this world marry
a woman because she is
beautiful in their eyes

There is a beauty in
health which is more at
tractive to men than mere
regularity of feature.
The inluence of women

drag upon her husbaid.
The cost of a wife's con- iS.

drain upon the funds of a
household, and too often all the doc

This great remedy for women has
done more in the way of restoring
health to the women of America than
all other medicines put together. It is
the safeguard of woman's health.

Shakespeare and Hiawatha.
An American schoolboy has written
an essay on the "Merchant of Venice,"
full of original matter. This is his
view of Portia: "Portia was a kind
and true-hearted young lady; she was
very good-natured, especially to some
of her gentleman friends, when those
young men was going to choose their
coons." But the gem of the article
relates to Shakespeare himself. "The
sory was written by Shakespeare,
who married Hiawatha. He was born
in Venice, where he and the merchant
shot arrows of the same fly when
boys. It was here that he learned to
season mercy with justice." Anne
Hathaway turned into Hiawatha is a
really interesting case of derangement.
