i Rut look at tho disasters cyclonic. At
?the mouth of tho (langes arc three islands,
?.the Hat tin h, the Suiukcp and the Dakin
[fihabosppre. In the midnight of October,
:1877, on nil those Ihre? islands thc cry
'was. "T ic waters!" A cyclone arose anti
rol'ed the M I our lho.-o three islands,
;and of a population o? 319,000, 215,000 were
?drowned. (July those ?lived who had
.climbed to the top of the highest trees!
.Did you ever see a cyclone? No"? Then
jl pray Cod you muy never see one. I caw
to. cyclone on the ocean, and it swept us :
?00 mi ey back from our course, and for j
.thirty-six hours during the cyclone and
[after it we exported every moment to go
to the bottom. They lo'd in before wc re
hired nt il o'clock that Hie barometer had
iallcn, but at Jl o'clock at night wc were
awakened willi thc sho?k 'if the waves.
AU thc belita ont! Crash went all the "life
boats. Waters rushing through the tky
liehis down into Hie cabin and down on
the fnrupeei until they hissed and smoked
in tho doings. Seven hundred people
praying, sh "jeldag. Our great chip poised
a moment o:i the lon o* a mountain of
phosphorescent (ire and (hen plunged
down, down, down until it scorned as it
she never vvntiid itg-dn he righted. Ah,
yon never want lo f ee a cyclone at sea!
But T was in Minnesota, where lhere
was o Mi of those cyclones on laud that
swept tho city o? Rochester from ita foun?
dations and took dwelling houses, barns,
men, women, children, horses, cattle and
tossed them into indiscriminate ruin and
lifted a rail train and dashed it ?own, a
mightier hand than that of engineer on
the airbrake. Cyclone in Kansas, cyclone
in Missouri, cyclone in Wisconsin, cyclone
in Illinois, cyclone in Iowa! Satan, prince
of the power of the air, never made such
cyclonic disturbances ns he has in our day.
And am I not right in saying that one ot
thc characteristics of the time ia which
we live is disaster .cyclonic?
But look at the disasters oceanic. Shall
I call tho roll of the dead shipping? Yu
monsters of thu deep, answer w-.ien I call
vour names. The Ville de lb?vre, tliu
Schiller, thc City of Boston, the Mai ville,
tho President, the Cimbria, tho Orogou,
the Mohegan. But why should I go on
calling thc roll when noue of them an
swers, and thc roll is as iong as the white
scroll of the Atlantic su.-f at Cane Hat
teras breakers? If thc oceanic cables could
report all the scattered life and all the
bleached bones that they rub against in
thc ocean, what a message of pathos and
tragedy for both beaches! In one storm
eighty fishermen perished ott thc coast of
Newfoundland and whole ilccts of them
oil the coast of England. God help thc
noor fellows ct saa aud give high scats in
heaven to thc Crace Darlings ami ida
Lewises and the lifeboat men hovering
nrouud Goodwin sands and the Skerries!
Tho sea, owning three-fourths of thc earth,
proposes to capture tho other fourth, and
is bombarding the laud all around the
carib. The moving ol the hotels at l?ri?h
ton Beach backward 100 yards from where
they once stood, a type of what is going
on all around the world and on every
coast. The Dead Sea rolls to-day where
ancient cities stood.
So I rejoice day by day. Work for nil
to do, and we may turn thc crank of thc
Christian machinery this way or that, foi*
we are free agents. But there is the track
laid so long ago no one remembers it-laid
by thc hand of the Almighty Cod in sock
ets that no terrestrial or satanic pressura
can ever affect.
And along tho tracie the car of the
world's redemption will roll nnd roll lo
thc Grand Central depot of the millen
nium. I have no anxiety about tha track.
I am only afraid that for our indolence
and unfaithfulness God will discharge t.s
and get some otljcr stoker and some other
engineer. Thc train is going through with
us or without, us.
