as a friend sticking to you whon all else

to push you down. Not ho much like

olden timet a suieiue was burled at the
crossroads, and the people were accus
tomed to throw stones upon bis grave, bo
it seemt to me there may be In this house

and as though the angels of God were
here to bury htm at the point where the
roads of life and death cross each other,
throwing upon tbe grave tho broken law
and a great pile of misimproved ptlvileget,
so that those going may look at the fear

when au Immortal s-m', for which Jetui
died, puts itself out of tbe way.
When Christ trod thit planet with foot
of Hesh, tbe p-ople rushed after him pea
pie v, ho were sick, and those who, being so
duk thev could not walk, were brought bv
their friends. Here I see a niothtr holding
up her little chibl and saying: "Cure this
croup. Lord Jesus, Cure thi scarlet
fever." And others saying: "Cure this
ophthalmia. Give ease and rent to this
spinal distress. Htra-ghten this club

stopped a dispensary. I do not believe that
In the nineteen centuries that have gone by
since, His heart has got hard. I feol that
we can come now with all our wounds of
soul and get His benediction. (1 Jesus,
here we are. We want healing, We want
