(Continued Fr-,n Page One.)
who had come to a kingdom of offi
cial place. it was a great thing to
secure high office. but it was a ser
ious thing to face the responsibil
ities of high office.
The same appeal was for those who
had come to a kingd-nmi f knowledge.
it was a great thing to enjoy the ac
vantages of mental culture: it va..
serious matter to ;ace th- responsi
bilities of education.
And he could 'nt pass by the
thought. how this appeal was for
those who had come to a kingdom
of grace. It was a great thing to be
a Christian: it was a matter of sub
lime import to face the responsibili
ties of being a Christian.
The speaker then took tip a dis
cussion of how this appeal was em
phasized by the claims of 'uch a
time as this."
In the time of peril and c'risis the
appeal came to Esther. Transfer the
sentence out of its ancient setting and
fix it in the framework of present
conditio.,s. Pre-eminently character
istic of this time. he said, was its in
tense activity. We were trying to
crowd the life of a century of ag
gone by into a ' single day. Agait
and again the question must come to
every thoughtful mind: . Whither are
we rushing? What will be the end
of all this fever-heat of activity?
Equally characteris.tic of the ti.me,
he said weke its marvellous achieve
ments. 1lighty were the possibili
ties of good in all this, but grave were
the possibilities of peril.
But the most serious characteristic of
this time were the grave problems it
was called upon to face. the most
vital that ever troubled the minds of
men, and each of which was of suffi
cient magnitude to make its proper
solution the work of a life-time.
Back of all other problems which
he mentioned were those involved in
what might be called the strictly re
ligious issues of the time. He was
not a pess'mist. The truth was mighty
and would at last prevail.- But there
was a present trend of thought which
must fill the devout mind with grave
reflections. The very atmosphere
was full of hesitancy and doubt.
There was a scornful rejection of fun
damental religious truth, a contempt
uous disbelief in everything a scalpel
could not cut. The current of edu
cated thought was running strongly
against the old established faith.
There was a time when men felt that
they had souls to be saved; now they
did not know whether they had souls,
or if they had they did not concern
themselves about their ..salvation. -' A
soothing universalism was in the air,
in our thoughts, and in many of oui
pulpits. 'And with bold presumption
the axe was laid at the very foot of
the tree. -These were some of the
characteristid of the age wvhich made
it a time of supreme crisis. It seemed
as if we were on the eve of great
movements. The signs of the times
seem to indicate that the history of
the world has come to a point when
it was drawing back and gathering
energy for one of these great forward
movements which have marked its
history. Trifle with the great pro
blems that face us and the'hand on
the dial might be turned back and the
boast-ed civilization of this 20th cen
tury would become a by-word of con
tempt for generations to come. Face
them squarely and deal with them
righteously, and this opening twen
tiet.h century would mark the epoch
of a grand forward movement.
It was easy to 'see how "such a
time as this" had tremendous claims
upon men who had been favored with
power of any -kind. The masses
were in large measure what the ten
dencies of the times made them.
But grave above all was the respon
sibility laid upon men who had been
favored with the advantages of men
tal culture and higher education.
To every edtlcated man came the ap
peal that came to Esther.
Dr. Dtunbar then took up the ques
tion of how this appeal grew solemn
in the recognition of divine purpose.
The fact could not be ignored that
God Almighty rules in the affairs of
this world.- And this being recog
nized. it was juist as certain that God's
providences. in controlling the affairs
of this world, centred in individuals.
And in this certaint y oif divine ptur
p. se there was the hiding of utnknowtn
possibilities in every life. The failture
of any life wa- at last to fall short of!
God's purpose in it.
she heard it. The shadows drift
away from the picture and she stands
forth in the full light of glory. Bless
ed. said the speaker. were those who
heard God's call. sounding in every
providence, travelling to them from
every corner of the universe. speaking
to them in the light -f nP#ndav stuns
and in the hush of midnight skie-.
sounding in the break if waves upon
the beach and in the rustle )f leaves

with the purpose of God. a-.d nothing

impossible. ft,r their were no cowards
iin the -nks of the Lord of Hosts.
The iker then addressed himself
especially to the graduating class be
fore him. Favored among men did
they stand today. The college gradu
ate started into life from a vantage
ground. As more than prince, come
of age. he entered into his kingdom.
Those before him had come into his
kingdom at a time of wonderful op
portunity. Wherever their lot might
be cast they would ind themselves
in the whirl of mighty movements. A
whole society was remaking itself.
The life of a generation was shifting
and resetting its assumptions. its
habits. its forms. its very manner of
Divine purpose was over each one
of them. tHe wanted to enjoin upon
them. bend your ear to hear that call,
to seek .for God's work- for you. Be
God's servant in doing that work.
.."Somehow." concluded the speaker.
"I have always pictured a college
course as something like a hard
climb up a steep embankment. which
for the time limited the vision of the
climber. Before we have reached the
summit on graduation day. it has
seemed to us.- as we have looked up.
that when we reach the summit there
would be no more hills to climb.
Ah. but when we have reached the
top and loo.k out before us our be
wilderment only begins. Mists and
vapors gather over the landscape. It
seems like a pathless- expanse. Ever
and anon as we seek the path we arP
to take we are confronted with high
er hills than we have yet scaled. And
as we attempt to look through the
;nists. we find many a deep valley.
God's path is there for you some
where. Be sure to get your feet set in
it. follow it with heroic resolve,
and it will lead you at last to the
golden mountain summit of victory."
The audience was dismissed with
the benediction by the Rev. W. B.
