AN ELOQUENT SUNDAY SERMON B
THE REV. R. H. CARSON.
Subject: The Story of Enth.
Brooklyn. N. Y.-In Grace Pres)v
terian ClIurch the pastor. the Rev. tob
ert L. Carson, preached Sunday ever
ing from the book of Ruth. Amion;
other things he said:
We miss a great deal of the beait;
and power of the Bible because o
the mainer in which we are accus
tomed to read it. There are very fev
who take time to read a whole boo]
through at a single sitting. We di]
into Scripture as if it were a book o
fate, reading a verse here and anothe
there. so it is not surprising that w
rise from the exercise having receivei
but little help and spiritual refresli
ment. There is no royal road ti
knowledge. There is no way to gaz
ner the lessons which Holy Scriptur
teaches save through that steady an
persistent searching of which our Sav
ions spoke when He said, "Search t:1
Scriptures, for they are they whie
testify of Me."
It is our hope this evening to poin
out some of the beautiful lessons con
tained In one little book of the BibA
in one of the most delightful store
ever presented for contemplation b;
the mind of man.' I refer to the bool
of Ruth. Its very place in the sacre
canon makes it a memorable piece o
literature. It is. as you know. pre
ceded by the book of Judges. and foi
lowed by the book of Samuel. Thes
books are concerned almost exclusivel;
with the national history of Israel
with the wars, defeats. humiliations
murmurings. complainings, repining
and repentances of the people. -The;
are not. in the main. pleasant reading
Their pages are red with blood, an
violence. and rapine. and lawless deed
the unchangeable consequences of
nation forgetting God and neglecting t
do His will.
It is a great pleasure. therefore. t
turn from these books that tell of th
ups and downs of national life. an
fix the attention upon the charmin:
story of Ruth. That little book pi(
tures domestic life: it gives us
glimpse into the quiet. everyday habit
and customs of the men and wome:
of that time. and we see them in the!
homes. in the harvest fields. at th
festivals. and at religious services.
Biography is, I think, the favorit
reading matter. We are deluged wit:
a flood of tictitious biography In th
shape of novels which come by thot
sands from the printing press ever:
year. It is an easy. but not Ter
profitable kind of reading, for in th
majority of cases there is a great dei
of unreality. too great an absence o
the lifelike, and too little of what w
know to be a common experience.
It is not so, however, in' the book o
Ruth. There we have life truly d(
picted: there we meet with men an<
women as we find them to-day-not ar
gels and not demons. but erring, endut
in-. faithful and not unblest.
It is not my intention to enter upoi
the story. I trust that you all kno
it. or that if you do not. that you wil
take aquiet half hour this very evexi
ing. and peruse that little book. whiclt
in its superiority. Is as far remove<
from our modern stories as the eat
is from the west.
in comning into touch, then, witbh t-bi
piece of sacred literature, and consid
ering for our edification some of th
lessons which it teaches, we see first c
all the superiority of character. Th
twvo chief figures in the story are Boa:
and Ruth, and It is their character
that make them such. There is no
in t:e whole range of literature a bet
te- type of manly, healthy religio1
thin is exemplified in the case of Boat
You remember that scene in the har
vest field. He went down to his- reap
ers. and his salutation without an;
cant or insincerity, was, "The Lord b
with you." My friends, when such
greeting as that cani take place be
tween master and men, it testifies t
the presence of a religion that leaves it
mark upon very act, and upon all th
conduct of life. It is the men lik
Boaz who are the ornament and gior:
of religion: the men whose beliefs in
fiece them all in the manifold cor
cerns of life, in the forum, in the mar
ket place, abroad as well as at home.
Our Lord tells us who are to be ac
counted blessed. It is not the men
hearers of His word, nor they who ca
cry, "Lord, Lord," and affirm that the,
have prayed in public places. It I
"Blessed are the doers of the Word.
and blessed they alone. Such In hi
day wais Boaz-a man of kindly feel
ings, pure heart. strong conviction. tin
purpose. and the benediction of th
Most High was upon him.
Such, too, was Ruth. with her loving
tender, considerate heart-one of th
fairest cnaracters in the whole rang
of Hebrew Scripture.
And the most noteworthy fact in 'hi
connection is that these character
were produced amid surroundings an
an environment that would have dis
couraged the a'. erage person. It wa
a lawless time; restrains were weak~
ened or entirely removed, and men be
came a law unto themselves. Such
condition of society is not favorable ti
the cultivation and development of thi
nobler virtues, and yet, amid such
state of things, we have the stirrin;
exa mple of these two who bravel;
maintained the testimony and did th'
right. It is not at all unusual to bxen
men blame their surroundings for thei
errors and mnistakes-: it is. indeed, th
c~ormon way by which we seek to con
done our failings, but the excuse is no
vaid. Some men, it is true. arec mor
strngly tempted than others; some ar'
in places that require a strong heatrt,
firm faith, an unshaken confidence i
God and in the power of Christ il
orer that they may be kept fronm th
evil that pr1evails around them: but n
m~n, if his purpose be true, can eve
be wholly overcome. There is n
tepta tion that hath befallen any m:
but what is common, and always wit
the temptation there is a way of es
cape it, trusting in the grace divine an
in the strength omnipotent, our hear
and wills be set on delivery.
Amid surroundings most unfavora b!
these two saints went on from strect
to strength, growing in grace and i
fa cor., both with God -ind men. b<
cause their hearts were right and thei
spirits true. By their example w
shuld be taught: we should not weal
ly bhime our place or condition ft
our failures, but, looking up to God, w
should ask Him to search and try us
to see if there is any wicked way in ut
and lead us in the way everlastint
But we learn again, from the story
the place of good works in the religiou
I do not think we would have hears
of Boaz and Ruth if their religious lif
h~d consisted of faith alone. It is zhei
deeds. the results, in daily life, of thei
faith that is egpecially dwelt uipon. I:
this respect the book of Ruth make
ani admirable commentary upon th
epstle of .Tames. Indeed, one of tih
most cheering features of modern ri
ligou.,e li ina the f-ct that thi
divinely appointed connection between
faith and works is daily receiving more
attention. Far be it from me to lightly
criticise our Puritan forbears, still as
we read about these heroic men of
whom the world was not worthy. does
it not sometimies seem as if the neevs
sity of faith was emphasized at the
expense of the necessity of works to
correspond? The two have been joined
tonether: their union constitutes the
perfect religious life. and what God
haith joined together let not man put
asunder. What I am trying to say hins
been summed up in a sentence by the
late F. W. Robertson. a sentence which
the ciureh should never let (lie. nd
f imt sentence is. "Faith alone saves,
but not the faith that is alone."
You remember Christ's words. "Do
men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of
thistles?' The man who rises from his
knees with the glow of the divine com
r munion upon his face. the man whose
faith hath made him a partaker of the
i power of God. and who then goes forth
to live the life which his faith bath
revealed to him. is the man of whont

I But. again. the, book of Ruth teaches
g us the necessity of decision. We read
- that Ruth and Orpah -ame to the part
L ing of the ways. that one turned back
S to Moab and her people. and that the
i other took her way to the land of
r Israel. Is not that a true simile of
e life? Sooner or later each one of us
comes to the parting of the ways. and
e we make the decision whose results are
h endless. "The kingdom of Heaven."
e saith our Lord. "suffereth violence. and
- the violent take It by force." That

place among the first ranks of those
to whom the high and gracious hearts
of all ages pay reverence. Friends, It

I The man is to be envied who can part

Peter always made himself very prom

Chrisfts words concerning offenses
against others (Matt. 18:6. 7). "How
oft." Peter perceives that a law of
tenderer dealing is to prevail in the
church than es:ists in the synagogue
"And I forgive." FJe knew it was his
duty to forgive. but the question was
how often. "Till seven times." Peter
uses the term seven in a strictly litera
sense. The teaching of the rabbis was
never to forgive more than three times
22. "'Until seventy times seven." I1

God. "Would make a reckoning." R

24. "Ten thousand talents." An
enormous sum. The amount cannot be
reckoned definitely. It has been esti
mated all the way from nine to twenty
millions of dollars. 25. "Had not t<

we are utterly incapable of makini

adequate to caricul the debt, but at
large a paymentr was to be made at
26. "Will pay thee all." The debt Is
admitted and he comes pleading foi
mercy. The means which a sinnez
should use to be saved are, 1. Deel
humiliation of heart. 2. Ferven
prayer. 3. Confidence in the mercy o:
God. 4. A firm purpose to devote hL:
soul and body to his Maker.
27. "Forgave him the debt." We
are debts of Qur heavenly King. But
if we cast ourselves at His feet. He it

brother's sins against me compared tF
my numberless sins against God. "Pal
me that thou owest." He was un
willing even to forgive him a singli
dollar. He must pay .n full and pay a
once. We must be very careful an<
not show this same disposition in'ou
treatrment of others. 29. "Fell dowi
at his. feet." His fellow-servant hum
bled himself and plead for mercy as h
himself had done just before this.
30. "And lie would not." Such
man; so harsh and hard against thos
who are In every way his equals. Ig
norance of hts own condition make
him unforgiving and cruel to others
31. "Were very sorry." An act of .thi
kind is so dishonorable to all tru
Christians. and to the spirit of the Gos

for the prosperity of the cause o
Christ they are obliged to speal
against it. 32. "Thou wicked servant.

a forgiving spirit will be tormented
both mn this world and in the world t
come. A guilty conscience, the fear o
the judgment (lay and the fires of God'
wrath (Rev. 20:15) will, in turn. ac

And inasmuch as the amount was s:
great that he' could never pay it, h
must have been delivered over to thi
tormenters forever. The wicked will b

CHILD'S AWFUL SKIN HUMOR,
Screamed With rain - Suffering' Nearly
Broke Parept's Heart-Speedily
Cured by Cuticura.
"I wish to inform you that the Cuticura
Remedies have put a stop to twelve years
of misery I passed with my son. As an
iniant i noticed on his body a red spot,
and treated same with different remedies
for about five years, but when the spot be
gan to get larger 1 put him under the care
of doctors. Under their treatment the
disease spread to four different parts of
his body. The longer the doctors treated
him the worse it grew. During the day it
would get rough and form !ike scales. At
night it would be cracked, inflamed and
badly swollen, with terrible burning and
itching. When I think of his suffering it
nearly breaks my heart. His screams
could be heard down stairs. The suffering
of my son made me full of misery. I had
no ambition to work. to eat, nor could I
sleep. One doctor told me that my son's
eczema was incurable, and gave it up for

PRAISE FOR A FAMOUS MEDICINE
Mrs. Willadsen Tells How She Tried Lydia
E. Pinkhbm's Vegetable Compound Just
Mrs. T. C. Willadsen. of Manning,
Iowa, writes to Mrs. Pinkham:
Dear Mrs. Pinkham:
" I can truly say that you have saved my
life, and I cannot express my gratitue to
you in words.
"Before I wrote to you, teling you how I
felt, I had doctored for over two years steady
and spent lots of money on medicines besides,
but it all failed to help me. My monthly ve
riods had ceased and I suffered much pain.
with fainting spells, headache, backache and
bearing-down pains, and I was so weak I
could hardly keep around. As a last resort
I decided to write you and try Lydia E. Pink
ham's Vegetable Compound, and I am so
thankful that I did, for after following your
instructions, which you sent me free of all
charge, I became regular and in perfect
health. Had it not been for you I would be
in my grave to-day.
" I sincerely trust that this letter may lead
every suffering woman in the country to
write you for help as I did."
When women are troubled with ir
regular or painful periods, weakness,
displacement or ulceration of an organ,
that bearing-down feeling, inflamnia
tion, backache, flatulence, general de
bility, indigestion or nervous prostra
tion, they should remember there is
one tried and true remedy. Lydia E.
Pinkham'sVegetable Compound at once
removes such troubles.
