sour in Imman dispositions; text,
ESphestans Ir, 20, "Let not the sun go
lin? n upon your wrath."
What a pillow, emhroldered of all
colors, bath the dying day: The cra?
dle of douda fron which the sun rises
is beantifnl enough, hut It Is surpassed
liy the tunny colored mausoleum In
tablcb fit evening It Is hurled.
Sunset among the mountains! It ai
most take* one's breath nwny to recall
tbs scene. The Ion:: shadows stretch
lag over the plain make the glory of
tin- departing light on the tiptop
crag*, itii. 1 struck n<dnnt through the
foliage the more conspicuous. Snffron
sod gold, purple and crimson com?
mingled All the castice of cloud In
conflagration. Burning Moscow? on the
sky. Banging gardens of roses at
tbelr deepest Moan, banners of va?
por, re! ns If from carnage. In the bat
tie of the elements. The hunter among
tns Adirondack? nnd the Swiss v 11
Isger among tns Alps know what la
:i ?onset among the mountains. After
St MS the rolling grandeur
Into which tin- ?ns goes down to baths
at nightfall Is something to make
weird mu? splendid drsaats out ?>f for
a lifetime. Alexsnder Smith in his
poem compares tns sunset to "the bar?
ren beach of hell," hut this wonderful
spectacle of nature makes me think
of tlie burnished trail of heaven. Paul
In prison, writing my test rstnsi ibers
some of the gorgeous b usas IB among
the mountains of Asia Minor and how
he bsd often ruwn th* towers of Da
btSXC In tbe close of the orient?
al days, and be flashes out that mem?
ory In the text when he says. "Let not
the sun gn down npon your wrath."
dtJtj for peo
I'le then and peopl* now I Porglr*
ness before randown! He who never
? ? tiiroii of Indignation is Imbe?
cile. He who can walk among the in?
justices of the world Inflicted npon
himself and others without flush of
or Hash of oye or agitation of
nature Is either In sympathy with
wrong or semi -idiotic. When Ananias,
; priest ordered the constables
courtroom to smite Paul on the
month, Paul llreil op nnd said. "Qod
Bball smite thee, thou wblted wall."
in th" seul, ne* Immediately befocs
my text Paul commands the Bpns
slans, "Be ye angry nnd sin not." It
all depends ou what you arc mad at
nnd how long tbe feeling lasts whether
anc.r is r!i:lit or wrong. Life Is full
of exasperations Raul after David,
Smooth after Uideon, Korah after
the Pasquina after Augustus,
- after Christ, and every
? me has had his pursuers, nnd we BIS
swindled or belled or misrepresented
cuted er in soiic way wronged,
nnd the danger is that healthful la?
in shall become baleful spite
and that mir feelings settle down luto
a prolonged outpouring of temper dis
_? to Uod nnd ruinous to our?
selves, and hence the Important In
Junction of th? text, "Let uot the sun
go down upon your wrath."
Why that limitation to one's anger?
Why that pcri.-d of flaming vapor set
to punctuate a flaming disposition?
What ha- the sunset got to do wtth
one's reaeni "ul emotions! Was It a
haphazard s, ailment written by Paul
without sp?cial significance? No, no.
1 think of He? reasons why we should
not let the sun set before uur temper.
\ssnjr With Fende.
First beca US? 13 hours Is long
enough to 1.toss snout any wrong
Inflicted npon us. Nothing is so ex
hsustlng to physical health or mental
faculty as u protracted Indulgence of
111 humor, it racks the nervous eye
tern. It hurts the digestion It heals

Whole body I? tirst overheateil uinl
then depressed, besides that. It sours
the disposition, turns DM aside from
his legitimate Work, expends energies
that ought to tie better employed and
(ins us more harm thau It does our
antagonist. Paul give? us i good,
wiiie sltowsnce of Urns for legitimate
denunciation, from o o'clock to 6
o'clock, but says, "Stop there!" Watch
tin' descending orh of day, aud when
It nailies the horizon take a reef In

Kim will begin i<> Bet, and. I heg you.

feuds. Invectives and satire?.
Other things being ?'final, the mau
who preserves good temper will come
mit ahead. An old ?niter say? that the
celebrated John Henderson of Bristol
England, was at a dinner party Where
political excitement ran blah ami the
debate goi angry, and while Headeraoa
was speaking his opponent, uuable to
answer ins argument, dashed a glas?

deliberately Wiped the liquid from bis
face and said: "Thl!<. sir. la a dlerrs
?Ion. Now, If you piense, for the main
argument'* While worldly philosophy
could help but very few to ?ucb e?jul
poise of spirit the grace of Ood could
help any man to BOCh n triumph. "Im
