A BRILLIANT SUNDAY SERMON BY
DR. SPENCER S. ROCHE.
Subject: Lessons or Elljah's LIe.
Brooklyn. N. Y.-A St. Ifark's P. E.
Church. the Rev. Dr. Spencer Summer
field Rocuhe. the reetor. preached Sun
day on "Lessons From Elijah's Life."
The text was frui I. Kings,. xix:9:
"And he anme thither. uto a cave."
Dr. Roche said:
The lessons present quito fully the
life of that grand old prophet Elijah
the Tishbite. From a sublime scene in
his life I shall atte!mpt to draw such
lessons as may fit the hour. Let us se
lect the moment when his soul yearned
to be on loreb, the mount of God.
Give your thoughts to this stptement,
"And he came thither. unto a cave."
I 2all speak of the (omiiing and of
the cavern: of the gr'ef the journey
brought to view. and tiwe glory the cav
ern revealed. Throughout we must 'e
member that we study a typical case
.of Alnighty Go(L's dealing with His
discouraged servants. What the Lord
said and did to Elijah Ie would have
us believe He says and does to our
From one of the most striking situa
tions in history we are to see Elijah
hurled in an instant. The occasion of
his fall was one of -t4h slightest of in
cidents, as when an avalanche whici
carries down the side of a mountain is
started by the waves o.- the air aroused
by a tourist's halloo. Ahab talked with
his wife. We have s(en greatness of
character in reticence,. as when to the
numerous intcrrogatories of Pilate the
Son of Man "answered him never a
word." So meanness; cowardice are
seen of:en in that easy flow of words
which leis out everything. A wife
may te:, her husband what he has no
business to know: a man may make
himself contemptible h'abbing every
thin; to his wife. "Ahab told Jczebel
all that Eiijah had done aid withali
how. he had slain the proph1ets with the
sword.". do. not 10 esta: d he spoke
in wrath or mal.--e: quite the contrary;
he knew jie had a tigress to deal with.
and used all the tact his lean wit could
sunon. He was afraid to tell her
that he himself had abandoned the
zinkin.: eause of the BFaalites. lie di
vided his matters. puttintg the rmall
things nrst: iast of al-her beloved
ministers of falsehoo nd raid were
slain. The tir-es "0:- l her angry
eyes and showed her ernel teth. She
sent this message to: l "The gods
do1 so to mne and m nore also if I mak11%e
not thy life as ti li'e ot on(o of them

be's hlooc x%- np. -"1He ar-se d:iii
went for his life." T*-e nin who had
confronted the king and his armed re
tainers fled terr'ited froim a woman.
Th rk" is a lesson h-r- for all. Life's
victories only lift us to new battlefields.
One of Elijah's mista';es was his sup
position that all would go well if one
event resulted favorahly. He succeed
ed beyond his wilo st dr:ais only to
find his real troubles yet to begin.
So we regard the oftice to which we
hope to be elected, the partnership we
are anxious to form, the fifty or hun
dred thousand we are striving for.
.When the grea. achievement is won
we are simply like the army landed on
a hostile shore under the guns of the
. fleet. Shut up for weeks in narrow
quarters, tossed -by the sea, fed on
ship's fare, the men long for the land
with its fruit and forage. The joy of
the landing is quickly exchanged for
the sense of insecurity and the feor of
A day or so after Carmtel. Ellijah was
at Beersheba. Even there he was full
of alarm. He fled into deeper solitude.
The farther he fled the lower sank his
spirits. See his awful consternation
in his inconsistency vwith regard to life.
He had run away to save it. Under
the juniper tree he begged it might be
taken. So low is Elijiah fallen! N< -
for the second staire of the journey.
The prophet is brose a down. He
thinks the end hats come. See hlow God
cheered His disconsolate servant.
* First He took care of Elijah's body.
The prophet was fatigued, famished.
spent. Natural law carrying out di
vine purpose ca-sed the pining and
sighing to bring slumber.
The discouraged Christian can often
do worse .han lie down and take a nap.
When the world is too much for us.
when the strain and worry seem as if
they would never case, when the dis-I
appointment is hitter. when the letter
comes destroying our hopes, when be
reavement leaves the heart desolate,
heaven guides the afficted soul to cain
and- quiet. anl the peace of submission.
"So He giveth is beloved sleep."
Next God fed Elijah. "An angel
touched hint and said: 'Arise and eat.'
And behold there was at his head a
cake baken on the coale and a cruse of
water." Our depression has at timies
an intensely physical basis. Our Lord
fed the multitude before He instructed
them. A full stomach is not always
the sigh of a pure heart. but who
doubts that if we could give one good
meal to the wretched creatures infest
ing the streets of cities we might begin
in some of them the salvation front sin.
Elijah slept and ate, and slept and
ate again. The repose was natural, the
repast sutper1natutral. bu: the lessons are
universally applhicabie. Calmted and
strengthen'd, itis holy spirit reasser'ted
itself. IHe would see Horeb the Mount
"And he eamoe thither. tinto a cave."

His method with this devout. heroe, d
but misguided saint.
God showed Elijah the impotence of
the Carnal. There is no reproach. "Go
forth and stand on the mount before
the Lord." There came sweeping down c
the granite crags of Sinai a nust and I
then a blast and then a hurricnue that 0
uprooted the ancient trees. and rolled c
the loose fragments of rock against one
another till they flew in pieces like e
millstones subjected to too swift revo
lution. The appalled saint knelt
breathless, and as the tornado spent itsi
force he lifted his eyes for a nearor -
view of God. "But the Lord was not
in the wind." The earth rumbled, the c
erags were split. the mount itself
rocked. the grounld opened great ris- '
sures. ihe day of the dissolution of na- C
ture itself appeared to have come. He
looked again. "But the Lord was not R
in the earthquake." The lightning
darte(d out o the-elouds, flash follow
ing fiash in the terrible splendor of i
Oriental lempests till the atmosphere .1
seemed charged with continuous tiame. 1
and Mount Sinai and th'e cave and the a
irmament itself seemed ablaze. Again 0
he strained his vision to discern in the a
blinding glare One yet more glorious. P
"But the Lord was not in the fire." 0
As has been finely said Elijah had t
conceived God simply as power. His a
own aehievements had been vroutcht s
by power. He is now made to recog- a.
nize .h. futility of mere force. This is 1
a need ful discovery for us. Especi- P
:lv for the world's great ones. The hi
Manl whC in finance or industry has
won the greatest success is speedily b
nvinced of the impotency of that
which men ordinarily consider victory.

How to Conquer Temptation.-Matt.
. 26:41; 1 Cor. 10:12, 13; Jas. 4:7;
Heb. 2:18;- 4:14-16; 12:1-4.
Watching against temptation is not
enough, we must watch and pray.
God hides an escape in every temp
tation: as, If you are tempted to
miserliness, give with unusual liberal.
Every yielding to the devil weak
ens us; every resisting niakes it easier
to conquer him next time.
There are two uses of "temptation"
in the Bible; one is Satan's snare, the
other is God's testing.
If we never lf ad ourselves into
temptation, we shall be in very little
One of the best safeguards against
our temptations is to keep ourse'ves
out of them.
We are not safe from a sin while
we long to commit it.
Temptation is a magnet: the nean'r
you get to it, the harder it pulls. To
see how close one can go to a tempta
Uon and not fall into it is a- foolish
with a sin as with Niagara Falls.
'Sometimes Gzd permits His best
servants to suffer the fiercest tempta
tions, as the most valued nietals aye
worked in the hottest fires.
Are you avoiding temptation as well
as nrayin~ ngainst it?
Do you hate all sir?
Are you fighting temptation in yout,
Only those temptations wh' i we
encounter in the path of duty did our
Lord promnise we encu'd conquer.
It is no more a sin to hea-- these
whispers of evil in cur souls than to
hear the wicked talk of had men as
we walk along tile street. The sin
comes only by our stopping a-id join
ing in with them.-H. A. Smith.
If a man has much cf thfi Spirit of
God, he will be sure to have great co'1
flicts with the temnter.-D. L. Moody.
If you are in Christ, you are in the
one under whose feet the aevil is.

New Yocrker's Enthusiasm Far Above
F. Ambrose Clark. stepson of Bishop
Potter andl an enthusiastic patron of
steeplechsing andl hunting, for sev
eral seasons has ar-otised the interest
of New York racegoers as much by
the disrecgard lie seems to have for his
neck and bones as for the fair amount
of sccess he has had in i-iding in
open steeplechascs. The field-stand
idea of Mr. Clark was epitomized at
Belmont Park. where the amateur
ockey got a bad fall juist before the
ield stand from his horse The Bow
ey, when a spectator, probably from
he Bower-y. remarked. "Just t'ink of
him doin' dat and him wort fifteen
The fall brought to the surface ex
act measurement of Mr. Clark's en
thusiasn, for whent he found his
horse was lame after he caught andl
remounted him, and he could not go
