A BRILLIANT SUNDAY SERMON BD
DR. JAMES W. LEE.
Subject: Hrow We Know God.
Brooklyn, N. Y.-For a month the
Rev. Dr. James W. Lee, rastor of
Trinity M. E. Church, South Atlanta,
Ga, acted as pastor of three Brook
lyn churche!s, Bethany Dutch Re
formed, Simpson M. E. and Central
Baptist. These churches united their
congregations into one, and invited
Dr. Lee to serve them. The sermon
last Sunday was at Simpson Chnrch.
The subiect was "Ho-.: to Know
God," and the text Hosea vi:3: "Then
shall we know, if we follow on to
know the Lord." Dr. Lee said:
For a: I our knowledge we are in
debted to three forms of montal ac
tivity wli(b are known as intuition,
reflectior. and recollection, or to use
different forms for the same thines,
we can call them percontion, bv
means o' which we recognize sinele
things; concention. by which we do
duce general frrins from single
things: and recollection, hv which
we recall nrevious percentions and
recollections. Tha. is, the human
mind can know the natural world.
the human world and the sniritual
world, hv the activity of the intuitive,
coneeptive and recollectivr- nowers.
From intuitions man generalizes eon
2eptions or ideas of gr-eater comnro
bensiveness. and he can call hek

:hrough his powers of recolleftion.
Man has three great intelletinal en
lowments- he can perepive, he can
!onceive, he can remember.
Our tiunitions. our percentions,
may be divided into three c1a--.
We have intuitions of the wo-l'd:
these are sense percontions: we have
Intuitions of ours-lves; tbosa are
;elf-perentions: and we have int-i
tions of the sniritnal world; these
tre religious pereqntions.
It must be understood, however,
that we can have no cognitions or
perceptions of either nature, man or
God, unlss nature, man and God

cetion Ihere must be a percaiver.

man can crepte nerceptions eithor of

For all h percentions of natnre,
man or Cod. he is shut up to the oh
jects which produce them. Te co"11'
no more have religious narcentions
without (od than he could have sofn
perceptiois without man, or sonso
perceptiois without a world. Snirit
ual intuitions are as indubitahla evi
dences of the presen-e of God. as
sense intuitions are of the nreaonee
of the material world, or as self-in
tuitions are of the nresence of man.
If religious intuitions do not imnnly

then civiiration is an unsubstan+41

a .iury is called to pass on his sanity.
(f a man continues to talk into one
end of a telenhone and to get an
swers back when there is no one at
the other end of it, a .iury is called to
inquire into the state of his mind.
Now, if for thousands of years the
human race has been perceiving God
in nature, in conscience, in history,
atnd answering back through- prayer
and reverence and song and liturgy
and doctrine and temple, when in
fact no God has been perceived, then
it is evident that human nature is
constitutionally deranged. Tt is re
markable, however, that ,man should
End himself led astray at none of the

opens out alirectly into the kingdom
of light. The gateway of sound et

T he intellect borders on the realm

if he wonild satisfy his hunger, there

When through the spiritual sense he
anprehenis what he takes to be di

tasmal forms of his own soul filling
the horizon in front of ' in.
If we can know God by exactly the
same meThods we use to know the
world and man, what becomes of
faith? In reply, It may be answered
that we have no knowledge of any
grade of reality whatsoever without
faith. For knowledge of things ma
terial we need sense-faith; for knowl
edge of things human we need self
fait1-.; for knowledge of God we need
religious faith. Faith does not come
at the end of Intellectual processes
by means of which perceptions are
worked up into conceptions and laws
and general ideas. Faith stands et

Before we can reason about gravi

work is to certify to the validity of

that is brought by Haeckel against
the existence of God was brought to

In denying the existence of God to
begin with, we close the door of the
spirit through which God manifests
Himself. If we start out with the
understanding that there is no God,
religious perceptions are strangled in
their very birth. Of course, we can
have no perceptions of God if we mu
tilate the noblest part of our nature
by putting out the eyes of the relig
ious sense. We have it within our
power to destroy our physical senses.
We can plug- up onr ears and shut
the windows of vision and close all
the doors through which the outside
world impresses us. But one foolish
enough to destroy his physical senses
would be doubly stupid if he imag
ined ,afterward that he had more
commerce with reality than those
who kept onen all the gateways of
the body and soul.
Haeckel says that "human nature
which exalts itself into an imaga of
God * * * has no more value
ror the universe at large than an ant
or the fly of a summer's d:.y."
Unless the knowledge man gets of
himself and the world and God by
the reaction of intelligence on per
ceptions is valid and 'rustworthy,
Haeckel is right; man is not of more
value than the ant, or the fly of a
summer's day. He is not of as much
value as the bee, or the beaver, or
the tailor bird; for they are all art
ists without the tronble of learning
how to be, while he is left to accumu
late knowledge as best he can by the
use of his faculties. They know at
the beginning what It has taken him
thousands of years to find out, and
even now the bee surpasses him in
the application of the principles of
If what man knows, or thinks he
knows, of the world and himself and
God is illusion, then the lower ani
mais have the advantage of him. The
knowledge built into their bodies
does correspond with the facts with
which they have to deal. They are
not disappointed and deceived. The
f vek of wild geese from the Northern
lakes have always fonnd the South
they felt In their blood was there.
The beaver has always found the
mud responsive to his tail, and the
wood of the tree no harder than his
teeth could cut. Bit, if the cogni
tions of man do not corresniondi to
things, but are hallucinations, phan
tasmal forms of his own conscious
ness, then the bears and tigers and
beavers and bees and ants and gnats
have the advantage of him. Human
beings who have exaltod themselves,
as Haeckel says, into images of God,
are the greatest fools, and the only
fools, on 3arth. The universe puts
a higher valne on genuine flat-footed
tigers, who find as they roam on all
fours the jungles matching their

conceit. They are like a company of
plain laborers, Imagining themselves
to be King Georges, and, instead of
occupying thrones, as they think they
do, they are perched upon stools in
the different rooms of an insane asy
lum. It were better to be a good,
healthy tiger in the tall cane of the
swamp any time than to be a crazy,
self-inflated, self-conceited descend
ant of Adam, running at-large in the
high places of existence. It were bet
ter to be a real cow, grazing in the
meadow, than an unreal human
biped, walking with his head full of
delusions in a paradise of fools.
A Rich Brother.
Mr. Dwight L. Moody used to tell
of a young man he knew of who
went into business in one of our
Western towns. The people thought
he was sure to fail; but he did not.
After he had been going along for
some years, showing no signs of fail
ing, it was discovered that he had a
brother in the East who was very
rich, and who helped him along from
time to time.
Just so is it with us in the Chris

who is very rich, and, joined in part

to hold out. Joined to Christ we a'

Growing importaice of Wheat.
One of the notable agricultural
facts is the increasing attention given
to the wheat crop, not only within
the corn belt, where for years there
was a tendency to neglect it, but also
in the distinctive small grain regions.
Under improved methods and ruling
prices for a series of years wheat
has proven one of the most profitable
erops. even in the old settled eastern
portion of Nebraska, while its possi
bilities have been one of the main
propelling causes of the extraordin
ary movement of farmers westward
into the subhumid region in the
United States and the vast expanses
of the Canadian northwest. Yet
there has been a marked concurrent
tendency of wheat exports to fall
off. An analysis of the fact cover
ing 27 years demonstrates a steady
inereas of domestic consumption,
amounting in the aggregate to 40
per cent., while population has in
creased only 30 per cent. which goes
far to explain the hiteherto puzzling
results. whether as regards prices,
production or exports. For it ap
pears by comparison of five-year per
iods that the per capita wheat con
sumption from IS79 to 1S4 was 4.q4
bushels, from 1901 to 1906 5.03
bushels. Just whey consumption
should so rapidly increase over so
long a period in the face of advanc
practically no new uses in addition
to that of human food, is not made
clear, but the fact of such increase
is established beyond a preadventure.
"Let me have thirty dollars," said
a prospector one day to a lawyer
friend. "I must have p-cwder and

weeks later the lawyer, who had ac
commodated his friend, met him on
the street. The prospector seemed
anxious to avoid his creditor. -"'The,
last time, I saw you, you were within

"All my life I had been troubled more
or less with humor in my scalp, but about
a year ago it became worse, and my scalp
was covered with little sores, which
itched so it nearly made me crazy; my
hair also began to get dry and fall out. I
tried all kinds of hair restorers with no
effect, and I was neary discouraged, but
one day I was reading in a paper what
the Cuticura kemedies had done for scalp
diseases, and decided to make a trial. I
got a cake of Cuticurf Soap, a box of Cu
