A BRILLIANT SUNDAY SERMON BY
THE REV. DR. C. F. AKED.
Theme: Chesterton's Discovery.
New York City.-The Rev. C. F.
iked, D. D., the pastor of the Fifth
enue Baptist Church, preached in
is pulpit Sunday.. His subject was
"How Mr. Chesterton Discovered
England." He too?: for his text.Mat
they 11:28 and'29, "I will give you
rest." "Ye shall find rest unto your
souls." -Come unto Me all ye that
are -weary and heavy laden and I will
give you rest. Take My yoke upon
you and learn, of Me, for I am meek
and lowly in heart, and ye shall lind
rest unto your souls," and said:
This ls Christianity's first invita
tion to the world. It applies the test
of nniversal religion. For the test, of
universal religion.is not in the num
bers of those who accept it, but in the
"varieties of men and. women who ac
cept lt, and whose needs it meets and
satisfies. This invitation has been
accepted hy every kind and condition
of men and women throughout the
whole of the human Tace; and every
type ol character, every circumstance
of need has responded to this invita
tion. The .men and wom?n who have
accepted have found. the rest for
their souls which ChTist promised.
Bat I am not going to preach to-night
upon this text. Millions of gracious
sermons have been preached upon lt
and millions of souls have been won
to the rest promised. I have one
purpose only in repeating the word3
at the outset, and that is that you
may use them, not as a text to ex
pound but as a motto of that which Is
to follow, for I purpose to speak
about a conspicuous figure in the
'World of letters who has accepted this
invitation of Christianity and found
rest for his doubting, wondering, in
quiring mind, rest for his turbulent
spirit; and he has written' a book tell
ing us how he found his way to Chris
tianity and to the rest that Chris
The man'is Mr. Chesterton. His
"books are freely on sale in this coun
try and he occupies a . very conspic
uous place, in English literary life.
"The book is called - Orthodoxy." It is
a story-autograph leal-rOf the way
In which he Brings himself to the ac
ceptance of Christianity. The style
ls all his own. He is the supreme
master of paradox among living men
the wide world over. His purpose is
to take any statement about any mor
tal-thing and shew that universally
?the contraryiis true. If, for instance,
I say that the doctrine of original sin
is gloomy and depressing his method
to show that the doctrine of orig
inal sia is universally the most brac
pg and most invigorating and ex
hilarating, that the mind of man can
?conceive. That is the man's way, and
?ne has attained to enormous influence
nd bis books to enormous sale by
?"working this paradoxical method. It
does not follow because I call your
attention to this hook that I am com
mending it unreservedly, but the
?value of the book is that it stimulates
thought. It sets you thinking about
eepest and highest things, and
'things deeply suggestive and
fuit to spiritual life. In one sense
a corrective of that very curious
ain?d temper ol our day which
ches every now and then an en
y new and original, gospel that is
g to supersede all other gospels
have ever been preached and
g in the millenium by special ex
;s with all expenses paid within
next fortnight We have seen
much of that sort of thing and it
a corrective of this curious habit,
s launching with banners flying
"bands playing, a gospel of to
rrow, which, on examination,
ves to be merely a second-hand
copy of a sleepy edition of the gospel
of yesterday afternoon.
Mr. Chesterton likeDs himself to an
English yachtsman, who in the Eng
lish. Channel loses his bearings and in
his imagination thinks he is in the
Southern Pacific and on approaching
the land believes it is some uninhab
ited or savage island. He goes ashore
prepared to meet wild men and ani
mals, and discovers that he is among
his own people in the familiar streets
of Dover br,Brighton. Mr. Chester
ton sets out to discover a new ethic,
a new philosophy of life, a new moral,
ity, and he discovered Christianity.
I have not been in this country twen
ty months yet, but I am quite certain
ih&t there have been twenty new gos
pels launched upon an astonished
public drring that time. I remember
one that was to take possession of the
church to win the world to Christ
Inside oil the next twelve months.
The- publisher sent me' a copy of the
book for my opinion, and I wrote him
that I did not care two straws about
thai sort of thing, but before the ink
in my signature was dry ? friend
|? called on me and I asked him how
Dr f?o and Sos scheme was getting
; on. "Oh," he said, -he is about
i ' through with it."
I said, -Why, I have only just got
,?rbis book from the publisher." "That
does not make a difference," said rov
friend. : "But," I said, "how can he
|r? have got through with it already?"
He looked at me with pity for my
insular, ignorance and non-apprecia
tion of the ignorance of the American
; mind and said, "Have you not been,
j here long enough to know,how easily
?we take a thing up and how much
more easily we drop It again?" The
;? fact is that what is new in these new
.y- schemes is not true, and what is true
f in them Is not new. I am very glad
to have such a man as Chesterton,
< with his paradox, irony and sarcasm,
' calling, attention to the utter folly of
& being led by this or by that, because
it pretends to be new. You may say
we are in a progressive age, but it is
because we are progressive that we
must preserve our self-respect ana
.. not be carried away by this and that'
"wind of doctrine." Looking back
over twenty years, I can recall in
numerable theories and philosophies
';that have tried, to take possession of
vjnan and the church; but they have
. "Igone and the old faith, the old relig
ion and the old belief ir. Jesus and the

* Towering o'er the wrecks of time.
All the light of sacred story
G?thers round its head sublime.
Mr. Chesterton tells us the way in
which he found his way to belief and
found rest, and he speaks about the
amazement with which he realizes
,how one objection to Christianity
' canceled another out.- Take one ob
jection to Christianity and it is com
pletely answered by anoth?r objec
tion from some other objector. He
found, he says, one objection in the
-agnostic manual to Christianity on
round that lt Is a religion of
gloom, and another because Christian
if had cast a rose pink veil over all
" man life, with a silly, flabby senti
mentalism about this being the 'oest
of ali possible worlds. He found an
other objection 'that it has made man
jweak azd that Christianity took all
the virility, all the manhood out of
us, and another that Christianity had
deluged the nations with blood. Is
Christianity, he asks, a religion of
meekness and mildness, or of mur
der and massacre? It may be one or
the other, but it cannot be both at
the same time.
You remember the humorous poem
by John Godfrey Saxe about the four
blind Hindus who went to see an
elephant. They could not see the ele-;
phant, but they said what they had
seen. One happened to lean against
the elephant and declared it was
much like a wall. Another got hold
of his tail and described him as being
like a rope. Another got his trunk
and said he was a serpent, and the i
fourth ran against his tusk and said
he was shaped very much like a spear.
The fact is that they had not seen the
elephant at all. That is all. And
that ls my sermon. The objectors
have never seen Christianity at- all;
they have never understood. Chris
tianity at all.- They have seen mere
fragments-the tail or ear of the
elephant-but they have not seen
Christianity and know not what it is.
The 'difficulties of religion are !
great, but the difficulties of unbelief
are infinitely greater. It is not true
that Christianity in its fullness is a
simple thing that anybody can grasp
In two minutes. There are difficulties
and perplexities, but the difficulties
and perplexities and problems in
which you involve yourself by the
rejection of Christianity are far great
er than those involved in its accept
ance. I could present half a dozen,
I will present one: ; If unbelief has
stated the case truly to us. Jesus
Christ was only a peasant boy, a car
penter and a fanatic for religion, who
lived in an obscure part of the Ro
man empire and died as a criminal
after three years -?f agitation. That
is all. And yet Christianity, the most
tremendous and colossal fact in the
world, has all' grown out of that!
Men and women, ignorant and wise,
In widely different circumstances, tell
you that they have been down and
have been raised.' have had burdens
lifted from their shoulders, strength
came to them, enabling them to bear
their loads, they have been conscious
of sin and realized forgiveness, the
chains have dropped from their man
acled spirits and they have walked in
the freedom of manhood and woman-,
hood, they tell you they have been
lost and were found. I myself have
at times seen through the vail that
hides the invisible from the visible
and have been sure of a God, and I
have risen from what I thou?ht the
very gates of death and have walked
the hills of life again, and found that
my Saviour was ty my side. If you
want to know whether Christianity
ls true, try it. The objections contra
dict each other, and are not true.
Christianity stands and Christ makes
His appeal still to you to-night and
offers the invitation: "Come unto
Me all ye that labor and are heavy
\aden, and I will give you resL"
Sacredness of Small Things.
We should realize the sacredness
of small things which we ignore or
despise-the deed that uplifts, al
though it is unheralded; the word
that inspires, although uttered so
gently that .'car neighbors do not
hear it; the hand clasp which puts I
your brother firmly on his ieet with
out public applause. Henc? the small
things dare not be despised by those
of us who wish to rise to higher
I thank God for our religious privi
leges. We all have equal rights un
der the Stars and Stripes. The Prot
estant and Catholic, the Jew and
Gentile, the Mohammedan may build
his mosque, the Buddhist his temple.
We'have no State church, no coercive
religious laws. We are responsible
to no human power for our religious
convictions, responsible only to God.
The church that makes the best men
Wiu women is the test church.
Christ's message to the churches of
Asia al! begin with the words, "I
know thy tribulation," "I know where
thou dwellest," "I know thy poverty."
It is as if He would lay the founda
tion for His encouragement or His
warning in the assurance of His sym
pathy. He always begins His mes
sage to His people thus: "I under
stand." We need not fear wrong
judgment, we need least of all to fear
th* indifference that springs fror? ig
norance. He understands, and there
fore can judge; Fe knows, and there?
fore can help.-Pacific Baptist.'
Rendering Tribute to God.
There are three ways of rendering
tribute to Christ-with the mind, the
heart and the will. I do net appeal
to your minds. No mar. of sense-to
day denies the Christ; that day is
past. I do not appeal to your hearts
and work on your sympathies. It's
easy enough to make women cry and
get Into a state of ecstasy so often
mistaken for real surrender to Christ.
I appeal to your will, for it's with the
will alone that you must answer' that
great question, What thin'.; ye of
The Purpose of God.
The purpose' of God through this
revelation for us is not knowledge
alone. Men devote their lives to ed
ence and philosophy. His purpose is
.not physical power. It is not wealth
and luxury. God comes through His
word to give us eternal life and par
don froni the power of sin.
There is no such thing as luck Ic
the world. It is an error cf thought
a misapprehension of the nature ol
things, to imagine that we are iu any
sense under the dominion of chance.
God puts consolation only where Hf
hajj"first put pain.-rMadanie Swet

Modern Farm T
! Notes of Inten
Cheat is Not Poisonous*
Some correspondents are asking
about cheat. One wants to know if it
ls a distinct species or a hybrid ; an
other asks if it is poisonous and adds
that sometimes oats sowed in f the fall
turn to cheat.
The plant commonly known, as
cheat in the South is Bromus s&cali
nus. It is certainly nut poisonous,
hut makes very fair hay when cut
young. There is in some sections an
other grass that is called cheat; it ls a
species of rye grass, Lolium temulen
tum, or Darnel. Tb is has long had
the reputation for being poisonous.
Eut it is easily distinguished from the
common cheat, as it has a stiff, erect
and prickly head, while the common
cheat has a branching, nodding head
People get chrat in their oats 'rora
sowing foul seed, for the seed of the
cheat ls very much like a small grain
of oat, and people not acquainted
with the different plants would take
it for oats. Get your land free from
cheat and then sow clean oats and
you will never have any cheat. You
had as well, try to grow a pine tree
from an accrn as to grow cheat from
"clean oat seed, though there are peo
ple who imagine that the cheat is the
result of the oats turning to a differ
ent plant. I have known college grad
uates to have this superstition, be
cause they had never been taught the
life of plants. You say: "You know
that sometimes oats sown in the fall
turn to cheat." I do not know any
thing of the sort, but do know that if
you sow cheat seed with your oats
you will have cheat, even if the win
ter kills the oats; for the cheat is
hardy and one knowing nothing about
plant life, and seeing green leaves
there, imagines he has oats till they
head all cheat, and he then imagines
that the oats have turned to cheat
when they were cheat all the while
from the time tl- S seed sprouted.
Tf you had sent samnles of the Vir
ginia oats you sowed last fall to the
experiment station they could have
told you that there were ch?at seed
in them. In Maryland a week ago I
saw a field of winter oats that were
half cheat, but the farmer who had
them was an intelligent student of his
profession. He did not irar.crlne that
the oats had turned to cheat, nut he
know that the .seedsman in Baltimore
had sold him foul seed. ''Whatsoever
p. man soweth that shall he also reap."
If there are no cheat seed in your soil,
and y\)u sow non9 with your oats, you
will never se? a oheat seed in the

Answer: At the best, only tempo

or red cle ver on poorly drained land.
Sines Bermuda is thriving on this

one of the main hay plants. Of course
it ls wise to use a clover or alfalfa in

show that alsike v/111 thrive, however,
lt is advisable to plant only limited

policy. It will nr>t make as large a
yield as red clover where red clover
is a success, but the alsike is more
likely to thrive. Its habit is more re
cumbent, and before cutting it will
not seem that there is as much hay
on the ground as there really is.. Al
sike may be grown alone, but a mix
ture ot hay plants will give a larger
On the moist land as described the
following mixture can be tried with
strong hopes of success: Four pounds
of alsiie clover, nye pounds of tall
fescue (called also tall meadow fes
cue, English blue grass, Randall grass
and by other names), four pounds ol
red top' and five pounds of orchard
grass seed. This mixture will give
good grazing as early as February, in
addition to the hay it will yield. By
having grass growing with the alsike
clover, the clover will not make erup
tions oh the skins of horses and mules

happen if grass was not eaten with
th? clover. Kay buyers in a commu

One advantage of feeding calves by

There should be good ventilation

The man who is in the habit of do
ing things well has much in bis fa
vor as a dairyman. Dairying calls for
well done work, and the grade of the
work corresponds with the net profit
to be realized.
While the aims of the common
farmer may not call for a cow of one
of the pronounced dairy breeds, yet
the man who is going into dairying on
, a considerable scale cannot afford to
use any other kind than good grados
of such breeds.
When anything very unusual or
very serious is wrong with a cow it is

but in the long run it will not oe best
to save a little by not employing him

The dairyman will have his uns and
downs, but his net profit will not
vary so much from year to year as
that of the average farmer will. If
the dairyman uses good judgment,

experience to reckon at the beginning
of the year about what his net profit
will be at the end of the year. .

Bed Sores Developed - Only
Onticnro Proved Successful.
41 Au out four years ago I had a very se
vere attack cf inflammatory rheumatism.
My skin peeled, and thc high fever played
havoc with my hair, which came ont in
bunches. I also had three large bed sores
on my back. I did not gain very rapidly,
and my appetite was very poor. I tried
many 'sure cures' but they were of little
help, ?nd until I tried Cuticura Resolvent
I had had no real relief. Then my com
plexion cleared and soon I felt better. The
bed sores went vory soon after a few appli
cations of Cuticura Ointment, and when I
used Cuticura Soap and Ointment for roy
hair, it began to regain its former glossy
appearance. Mrs. Lavina J. Henderson,
