Ono of tho most improsBivo
religious services I over nttonded,
ono which moved mo deeply,
L want to briefly des
cribe to you, nnd nmylmp in tho
hcouo and surioundiuns thore
urn) bo somutliing of help to
tlioso who toil iu mission iields,
homo or foreign; something, por
lmps, of stiuuuiition to thoso who
give of thoir substuueo to rulvnnco
the ciuiso of Christ iu tho slume,
on tho far frontier, or in tho
blackness of heathendom
It was half-past fivo o'clock on
ii wintry afternoon in early De
cember, 1895. Thore was a shim
inor of Btarlight through tho rift
iu tho roof whoro tho stovepipe
ad tho pino shingles failed to
meet by several inchos. Tho
'room was cold. A liugo box
flovo on ono sido kopt tho air
vnrm for thoso who sat neaiest it,
n half. dozen serious faced folk, in
humble attire. I sat on n low
school seat bench, and my heavy
overcoat was hardly proof against
tho stinging cold. In front of
me btood a rudo dchk on which
two kcrosouo lumps mado sad
ehow of illumination. Tho room
Jiad no plastering, no furnishings.
The building was mado of pino
bauls with a covering of tarred
paper, aud was used for a school
At my left thero stood a slender
man in the while gmb of a rector.
His face was Hushed from tho bit
ing cold, for ho had been walking
perhaps ten miles from his station
to pi each to this handful of peo
ple not moro than twelve all told,
lie used an abbreviated or con
densed foun of the Episcopal rit
ual, and then preached a short ser
mon on the second coming of
Christ. It was Advent Sunday,
aud ho made his sermon lit tho
it was not so much tho arrange
niou't of his discouise, though that
was sensible and logical; it was
not so much the expositiou of tho
uondoifiil coming of Christ,
though it was full of tendernoss
aud void of irrationalism; it was
not &o much the manner of ad
dress, though that was forceful
and worthy of a city pulpit not
theso that most impiessod mo, but
if J may used the word, it was the
transcendent earnestness of tho
man marked this sermon as one
to bo leinembored a life-time. The
central thought was tho oft
lopeuted promise "I will come
again," aud tho universal need of
boiug ready for this coming,
whether it be on be tho morrow
or iu a thousand morrows.
The picacher's face was radiant
with a hopo that moved ono as
j)oi haps not oveu his earnestness
Hut it was not only tho preach
ing of this inun that impressed
me, as ho told the story of tho
Cross to this handful of pcoplo
away up in the heart of ono of tho
vustest pino foiests yot left on tho
f;lobo; there was oven moro in his
ifo. L learned of this life from
him only iu tho barest outlines
fioru others 1 learned moio in de
tail. Twenty two years ago, a young
lector, ho wont into the forests of
Noithern Minnesota to preach tho
gospel to the Indians. Sinco that
time ho has bfon steadily at work
among them, llo has ton or a
dozen mission churches, perhaps
300 souls all told. Theso churches
aio located at widely separated
points on a vast Indian reserva
tion. The preacher is absout from
his homo at the agency, whoro
stays his dovoted wife, about half
of overy week. Sometimes bo vill
wnlk titty miles to meet a pleach
ing engagement to his Indians.
Sometimes ho travels on horse
back, sometimes in a humblo ono
horse rig, sometimes in the dead
of winter on snow - shoes. Ho
i,ui)c)b liib little children at tho ago
of six years away to school, for
not all tho mission work lie may
do makes it eafo morally for them
to come iu daily contact with tho
vices of the Indians, for who shall
Miy for how much tho whito man
in responsible t Think of it,
will you ? Eorced to prut company
with his precious children at thiB
age, to neo them perhaps only
M'iiii-yc-arly until they reach man
hood and womanhood. He told
me, when I asked him about his
life, with a sadness in his speech
I shall notfoiget, that ho was
aalmmod to say he read but little
ot tho world's thought ho wiib bo
l)ii "y with liis work, he was abroad
in tho forests so much, he could
not find timo to keep up with the
mental paco of thoday,and ho had
quit trying to.

Bubbles or Medals.
" Best sarsaparlllas." When you think of it how contradic
tory that term is. For there can be only one best in anything one
best sarsapariila, as there is one highest mountain, one longest
river, one deepest ocean. And that best sarsapariila is ? ....
There's the rubl You can measure mountain height and ocean
depth, but how test sarsapariila? You could if you were chemists.
Hut then do you need to test it? The World's Fair Committee
tested it, and thoroughly. They went behind the label on the
bottle. What did this sarsapariila test result in ? Every make
of sarsapariila shut out of the Fair, except Aycr's. So it wa3
that Ayer's was the only sarsapariila admitted to the World's
Fair. The committee found it the best. They had no room for
anything that was not the best. And as the best, Aycr's Sarsa
pariila received the medal and awards due its merits. Remember
the word "best" Is a bubble any breath can blow; but there aro
pins to prick such bubbles. Those others arc blowing more
"best sarsapariila" bubbles since the World's Fair pricked the
old ones. True, but Ayer's Sarsapariila has the medal. The
pin that scratches the medal proves it gold. The pin that pricks
the bubble proves it wind. We point to medals, not bubbles,
when we say: The best sarsapariila is Ayer's.
