At the Baptist church Itcv. Rickerson
delivered his fifth sermon on tlio rela

"KAIT1I AND TRIAL."
Text, Hebrews 11 :8, 17-10. By faith
Abraham, when ho was called to go out
into a place which he should after re
ceive for an inheritance, obeyed; and ho
went out, not knowing whither ho went.
By faith Abraham, when ho was tried,
offered up Isaac; nnd he that had re
ceived the promises offered up his only
begotten son, of whom it was said that
in Isaac shall thy seed bo called : ac
counting that God was able to raise
him up, even from the dead, from
whi-nce also he received him in a figure.
The life of Abraham was tho begin
ning of a new epoch in the history of
providence. It was tho opening of a
new chapter in the story of human re
demption. Man, the dull, obstinate
scholar, had mastered some of the ele
mentary truths. Now, there is a revela
tion of some of tho sublime facts. Now
the shadowy prophecy of Eden takes
form in the distinct promise of a Mes
siah. Faith has a firmer basis here a
Father, yonder a divine Son. Between
the prophecy and its fulfillment lay the
obstacle of a human impossibility, but
impossibilities are gossemer webs before
the march of God's promises. Think of
the grandeur of this man's position
standing there, in the world's morning,
his snowy head lit up with the rays of
nil prophecy, as they touched him 'and
hurried across the centuries to beam
from the star of Bethlehem and usher in
the morning of the day of Christ.
Abraham must be" fitted for his re
sponsible jKwition, so God began tho
necessary course of sovere discipline.
Quietly settled in tho land of Meso
potamia, leading a peaceful, happy
life, his father and friends around linn,
hia flocks and herds increasing; going
quietly down the decline of lift God's
voice of command broke tho quiet ; "Get
thee out of thy country, and from thy
kindred, and from thy father's house,
unto a land that I will show thee."
Abraham wasted no time in exclama
tions of surprise, in vain efforts to solve
the puzzle, in taking an inventory of
what lie must sacrifice. He heard God's
voice, gathered up tho little he could
carry with him, turned his back upon
therest, and heroically begun the wan
dering, apparently aimless life which
(Jod had appointed. There was nothing
attractive in it, but it was God's pil
grimage. Somewhere beyond there was
permanence not a folding tent, but a
city with foundations, whose architect
and builder was God.
But tiiis was a mere shadow of God's
later discipline. When God had
bridged the gulf of human iuqiossibility,
and the boy Isaac had grown to early
manhood, and the Patriarch's homo had
blossomed into a sweet symbol of tho
city with foundations, and the promises
of God were growing more precious with
their unfoldings, another command
came, as thunder rattling down
a cloudless sky, as lightning riv
ing a giant o'f tho forest: "Take
now thy son, thino only son, Isaac,
whom thou lovest. and get theo into
the land of Moriah and offer him there
for a burnt offering mxm one of tho
mountains I shall tell thee of." Every
word was a dagger cutting through the
father's heart. Would ho stand the
test? Would he curse God and die? He
gave voice to no doubt, he uttered no
passionate remonstrance. Ho took the
wood and the victim and "rose up and
went unto tho place of which God had
told him" threo days' journey, each
day an eternity. What questions lie
usked, what battles he fought, what
agonies lie suffered, who shall tell?
Faith triumphed. Here was the wood,
tho knife, tho boy; yonder on the
mountain the altar and slaughter.
Hero was God's promise, and hero was
Isaac, on whom all God's faithfulness
depended; and hero too was God's com
mand. There was an awful gulf be
tween; he could not bridge it, lie could
not solve the problem God knew.
Search all literature in vain for
grander words than these: "My
Father." "Here am I, my son." "Be
hold the lire and the wood; hut where
is the lamb for a burnt offering?" "My
son, God will provide himself a lamb for
a burnt offering. So they went both of
them together. They gained the height;
the father piled up the rough altar, laid
in order the wood and bound his lioy
upon it, lifted the knife the angel
Jehovah held back the obedient hand
another victim was found for tho
altar. Abraham called that place of
slaughter, that gate of heaven, "Jehovah
jireh" tho Lord will provide God
took the blood of tho lamb and wrote
thero tho patriarch's name forever
Abraham, Father of the faithful.
1. Our spiritual journey out of tho
Mesopotamia of sin into the Canaan of

A sharp summons comes: "Get theo
out of thy country, into a land that I
will show thee." Some things may be
taken with ns all that is worth saving
some must bo left behind tlio old
hoies, ambitions, sensual pleasures,
follies, all the flocks nnd herds and

'I. All God's discipline is planned not
alone for the accomplishment of his pur
poses, but for our highest good. It is
folly to murmur nt God's husbandry.
Are wo like Alpine travelers, murmur
ing because they cannot sever the rope
that binds them to the sure-footed
guide? Do we pray "Thy will be done
thou art the Potter, wo the clay" and,
when God's hand begins the molding,

WORKS OF TIIK Sl'IHIT.
It described the fullillment of Christ's
promise, that the Holy Spirit should
descend upon, energize and abide with
tho Church. It was an unfinished book,
closing abruptly and in tho midst of
magnificent enterprises, just becauso
the record of tho Paracletes working
could not but be unfinished until the
eternal transfiguration. Startling ques

broached by individuals, societies and

come to these questions. But this
morning's text revealed the pre-eminent
question. The primarv idea is deliver

calamity, contingent loss, these furnish
various elements in the conception. It
is this and more tho deliverance from

it is lo!s only to the proprietor or law,

Self-interest ought, but ennnot insure a
right life. New and heavenly powers
are indispensable to a new nnd'heavenly
life. Who shall deliver from self the

simplicity is the answer given. Sooner

Alleged Discovery of Corrupt Practice

nnd State Inspector.
Chicago, Juno 15. With inspectors
known to be watching the slaughter
house of Jacob Hess to prevent the sur
reptitious preservation of the meat of
lumpy-jaw cattle the forbidden practice
was discovered last night in full blast,
so at least representatives of the city
health department declare.
The inference drawn is that the
tainted meat, at cheap prices, but all
profit, was to bo marketed through ped
dlers in the artisan districts of Chicago.
Apparently each elevator load of meat,
before being hoisted to the upper floors
of the slaughter house for destruction in
the rendering vats, was for a moment
lowered to the basement and' the hind
quarters and most valuable meat
secretly unloaded, after which the ele
vator was again started upward to the
rendering vats. Just 2700 pounds of al
leged diseased meat was found hidden
away in the basement.
Tho discovery was made by the city
officials, and is lieing used by them to
support their olt-niailc charge that the
State insjiectors nre remiss if not cor
rupt, and tlint the inspection should be
done by the city.

Amheiit, Mass., June'15. The sermon

His topic was "Duty of the Educated

"Heretofore in all parts of the world

with their hard-earned dollars; rescued
the country's liberties with their con
scientious ballots and defended, time
nnd again, the stars and stripes with
their loyal blood. Vigorous in body,
strong in character, striking in individ

mon sense, fertile in resources, devout
believers in providence, the farmers of
America will never allow themselves to
lie overwhelmed by the fate that sunk
the tillers of the soil in India, in Egypt
and in Europe.
"From all parts of this land the farm
ers are coming together. Organization
and cooperation are wonderful ideas that
have awakened them as never before.
They nre grasping hands with n grip
that means something, comparing ways
nnd means nnd uniting upon ends to be

They insist upon a fair share of the
profits of American industry, claiming
that no state can long exist in
which the tillers of the soil bear
most of the burdens and sharo
little of the blessings of ad

in danger of making mistakes in the

Petition of the Consumer' Association to
Boston, June 15. A memorial in
favor of free wool has been sent to the
Senate Finance committee by the wool
consumers' association. It closes thus :
"As all wool grown in the world is
now wanted the American grower could
hardly be injured by a readjustment of
values. If, at the worst, his product
should fall slightly in price, he would be
compensated soon by a larger nnd more
certain demand from stimulated and in
creased manufacture. The half-bred
mutton sheep wool, in warp, works
admirably with rejected wools, fillers
and Montevideo fleeces in filling. Thus
mutton flocks would bo stimulated
through the importation of free raw
material and the American consumer of
woolens and worsteds would get better
fabrics at prices generally lower."
