TUESDAY? SEPf. 21), 1885."
(Conclusion of Major Dane's Ad
dress.) KOOlxTll'3 or sunt pah,.
Un the toj of thai hill is the gient
temple of the great goddess Athiv
hiv. Oa another smaller eminence
near by is Marshill. At the foot
or Maishill in Paul's day was a
great mailed. Pat t of it still stands,
llcic Paul, for thicc weeks, was
occupied in telling llio people ti new
story. The Athenians weie fond of
hearing and talking about now
tilings. Paul's teaching was soon
noticed, and a gicat excitement wns
cicated by it. The (Weeks had
many gods. In sight of Mtu'shill
were 7,000 statues of gods, god
desses and heroes. Hut here was a
man who had come to tell of one
God. Besides the immense number
of their statues, the Athenians had
ilOO temples. Among these temples
and their altais, Paul had made a
discovery, lie had .seen on their
tablets one inscription "To Hip un
known God." The Gieeks have a
tradition to account for this singulai
inscription. Some years bcfoic Paul
was there, a great plague had broken
out among the people. The piicsts
of their numeious temples told them
the plague was owing to their grow
ing neglect of the worship of the
gods. And then they thought of
their gods, and sent messengcis to
another gie.it temple they had in
the mountains at Delphi. In this
temple was what was called an
oracle. In times of tioublc the
oracle was consulted and was be
lieved to he able to tell what should
be done. On this occasion, the
oracle said nothing could be done
for the plague-stiickcn Athenians,
but said thcic might be another
power above the gods of Athens
whose intci position they might in
voke. They were directed to go
back to Athens, take a flock of
sheep, drive them up the hill, and
wheie a black sheep would lie down
to 1 est, there to erect a temple in
scribed "to the unknown God."
They did so. Less than 1100 yeais
ago, most of these tablets were still
standing. Paul told them of that
unknown God. The lich, the learn
ed and the wise men of the city be
gan to be excited, as they had been
at Ephesus. They said to Paul,
"Conic up to Maishill where the
highest com Is sit after sundown,
and tell us what all this is about.
I took my liiblc, one evening, last
summer, and went up to Marshill
and read aloud to myself, the nar
l.itive of Paul's appcaiancc before
that court, and 1 thought of the
wonderful courage of the man who
could say to these, the proudest
people in the woild, "Ipeiccivc that
in all things, ye are too supeisti
tious, 1 have been all round looking
at jour altars and your tablets,
and found one to the unknown God,
and it is of that God, whom you,
in your ignoiance do not know,
that I am here to tell ypu. It re
quired a wonderful courage to tell
those men they were ignoiant. Put
it required a still giander courage
to announce to them that Godjiad
made of one blood all nations, there
by intimating that all men weieon
an equality. .No statement could be
more insulting to the proud Greeks
than to tell them any man was as
good as a Greek ! He, a -Jew, dar
ing to say a Jew was equal to a
Greek, and knew more than the
Greek! Then he told them God had
set up a judge, and that one day all
should use from the dead to be
.judged. They were astonished,
offended, and would hear no 11101 e.
After my visit here J went over to
Corinth, and used to wonder to my
self where the house of Aquila and
Priseilla stood. I thought of the
wonderful man who, while building
churches, labored here and made
tents. And then I settled in 1113'
mind that Paul was tho greatest
man the world ever saw. It is a
great thing to walk through such
places. There is, to-day in Athens,
none of the seven churches of Asia
which have gone down to their
graves. Corinth is now in the dust,
other great places seem to have been
wiped from the faeo of the earth.
Tn my boyhood, I can leineinber
that when the churches were send
ing missionaiies, the government
was sending war snips to put down
piiacy in the Gieek waters. In the
early years of the missions to your
islands, in 1831, a woman went to
Gieeco as a missionary. Slio told
me when she landed tlieie, she rode
ten miles inland, and not a house
nor a person was to be seen. A few
days after her arrival, she opened a
school of three gills, The school
now numbers 430. The gieat
church founded by St. Paul, as an
organization, still exists, but it is
now a church without spirituality, a
body without life. Entering one of
the places of worship of the Greek
church, j'ou see a large counter
loaded with candles, which are sell
ing at from a half cent to a half
dollar a piece. Doctors, merchants,
lawyers and rich ladies as well as
poor people come in awl buy these
candles. Up by tho alliir arc 12
pictures of saints. The buyers of
the candles go up to tho pictures,
kiss thtim from one end to the other,
and cross themselves. Hero priests
lead prayers, but no bible, and they
deliver no sermon. The bread of
the Euchaiistis dispensed, first to
the peoplu inside, then to those out
side the church, and while it is be
ing dispensed, 1111 attendant collects
the pennies from the worshippers.
And this is the church which they
say if a man leaves, he becomes an
enemy to his country.
A young Check whom 1 met there,
was bom and leaicd to manhood in
the faith of the Check church, but
at 31, he found out that man can
not be sacd by ceremonies. lie
become a Bible leader, and the re
sult was he gave up the Greek faith.
Meeting some Americans, he was
induced to come to America, wheic
lie cntcied college, and after com-
pletingliis course, lcturued to Gicecc
to labor among his countrymen,
not in proselytizing, but in showing
them the spirituality of Christianity.
Last year, lie showed me letters
from different places, asking him to
come to visit them. But his funds
weic exhausted. He told me he
had no money to go. I said, you
shall have money. When 1 return
to Anieiica, people will be asking
me for addresses to Sunday schools
to tell what I saw here. 1 shall
comply with their requests only on
condition that they will help you."
1 only ask the people to do as they
ehooc. I thought it would be a
beautiful tiling for these islands to
speak to him acioss oceans and eon
.tinents, saying, "We know the re
ligion Paul preached and send this
as a tlinnkoffering for that gospel
it pioclaims." Your contributions
will go, through your pastor by
letter; and may a blessing lest upon
him and you and youis forever!
