go over this Jordan."
This is first of all a call to Confi
dence. In all the nistory or israei
there is scarcely a parallel to this
scene. Yonder lay the fertile fields
and vine-clad hills of Canaan. Here
the resting camp of Israel, and rolling
dark and deep before them swept
the swollen tide of Jordan. Then,
confident in God and defiant of the
- - . I
raging waters Josnua issues tne command
"oFrward, march." "Whither
march?" asked many a timid soul in
Israel. Back into the dreary desert?
Forward into the raging torrent? But
while they wondered, from tent to
tent, from tribe to tribe, rang out the
captain's order, and march they did !
that day, straight for the angry
stream, with God's banners all unfurled,
and the Ark going on before
them. Dry-shod, the nation went
over, in "Canaan, fair and happy
land," and clam-ering up the banks!
of Jordan they lifted up their voice,'
with sounding cymbals, and sang the
praise of Jehovah, the God of Moses
and of oJshua. How is it with you,
my friends, on the brink of your "promise
land," the land of your
manhood's dreams, with a tide
of hindrances rolling dark and
deep before you? I tell you
* ' A1? v ? * ?1- in ere fh at VI

the fibre of men's souls. The destiny
of any man is settled by what he'
thinks of danger. We want you to j
have a judicious confidence in your- j
selves. The world does not owe you
a living. All it owes you is a chance
to make a living. Have confidence in
God. His arm is mightier than the
giant waters of your Jordan. The
"* ?- ~ ^
best tiling unaer ntaveu is iu ucut? ^ |
in God. Sound the call to all your
talents, "forward, march," sure of
your mission, sure of yourself, sure
cf your God.
Secondly, this is a call to conquest.
Canaan was Israel's land, to possess, |
but to possess it at the edge of the
sword. It wras theirs to win. Th.3
sons of Auak wrere there. And we
miict rpst nur Canaan from these
other "sons of Auak." Idleness is the
name of one. I entertain no hope for
*he young man who is always advertising
foi a light situation. Whether
it is preaching, or teaching, or pr?:o- j
tieing meuidne, or ploughing corn, it
is sKady application that wins tr.o
prize. Cyrcism is another giant. T ie
cynic is a tad citizen. Oh, for a generation
of men and women who will
brace th 5r sculs against the cynicism
that clcatts the honest purpose ot
mon and the cVar virtue of wo r.en.
At least another giant in our land is
selfishness. The gladdest privilege
that can come to any of us is not to
get, to keep, to hoard up, but to
give, to spend and be spent, to minister
in the name of Him who came
not to be ministered unto but to minister,
and to give his life a ransom

We would rather you be good, than
great. We would rather you would be
true, than famous. The world has a
right to expect good things of its
college graduates. It is what you
are that is going to measure what you
are worth to your day and generation.
The one calling that overtops all callings
is the calling of a Christian. For
a man to hear that word and do it,
"Follow me," is a business vaster
than the task of staesman. God
grant you joy in the land of your

Sunday Sight Address.
The annual address to the Newberry
college Young Men's Christian association
was delivered in the opera
house Sunday evening, before a large
audience, by the Rev. Theodore G.
Hartvig, of Jacksonville, Fla.
Choosing for his theme, "The Heroism
of the -Man of Galilee," his address
was a scholarly effort.
The Heroism of the 3Fan of Galilee, j
There is nothing grander in life
than a noble hero. Nothing will help
to uplift a life, inspire it, give it lofty ;
ideals, and call forth the best that is in
us, like studying a noble life from '
its heroic side. All the world loves <
While being impressed with the
wonderful heroism men in the days
gone by, did it ever occur to you that i
the noblest of this world's heroes was :
none other than the man of Galilee? J
The' heroic traits of His character i
were never made to stand out before
us in such a way as to arouse our <
enthusiasm. The life of Jesus has <
usually been presented to us as a <
meek, patient, suffering life. And so \
it was, but it was infinitely more. ]
Here vou have the life of the noblest i
hero. No life that has ?ver been lived
can compare with it in this respect. ;
when we look at the world's great
heroes and compare their lives and
deeds with those of the Son of God,
they pale into insignificance.
It will be our purpose tonight to
try 10 make the heroic qualities of
the Man of Galilee stand out in such
~ r* 1 1 t- Vl O f" T C
<t \Y ay as LU ftiuusc an
within ns to new endeavor after a
similar life of nobility and true heroism.
1. The hero must pos&ess Ideality;
the power of getting hold of a lofty
idea; which becomes a living thing
??J ~ TT-V>?ftV? <-> -men wiotr crivfi VllTTl
dilU IU n ujtu a- uiu4i v ?
self with all his powers. There can
be no heroism without that. The
true hero must be possessed of a
great idea to which he has consecrated
2. Again, true heroism involves
self-mastery. Complete self-mastery
over every passion, appetite, impulse
ancl ambition, so that all may be under
the command of that ideal, and
that under the severest stress of excitement,
the mightiest storm of temptation,
the most sudden and unexpected
surprise, all may be held firmly
and steadily in hand,?these constitute
the essential elements of true
3. The true hero never vacillates,
never halts between two opinions. He
is a man of decision, with granite in
his nature and iron in his blood.
4. The hero of the highest type
must own real courage. Only when
a man is inspired wi:h some moral
idea to such in extent that he is willing
to sacrifice all for it, only when
he is seized with the love and inspira+

forget himself, and go bravely forward
to danger, strong in the sense of duty,
?only then is his action truly courageous
and heroic. Real heroism lies
deep in the human character, and
must have moral qualities behind it.
Heroism is not doing something. It
is being something. You may be a
hero, ana yet never penurm an
heroic deed. It is not the occasion
that makes the hero. It only draws
forth the heroism that has been lying
5. Another thing, the true hero is
self-sacrificing. Altruism lies at the
base of all genuine heroism. Examine
all the heroic deeds performed by
men, from the day when Moses left
the corrupt court of Pharaoh for a
life of poverty and suffering, right
down to the present time, and you'll
find that not one can be found that
has not involved in it this element of
self-forgetfulness and self-sacrifice.
How did the character of the Man
of Galilee fu 'he conditions of true
1 TiM TJia Tinccoco 9T) ir'pnl? Whllfi
-L XJ JL U J-JLV^ l*" *V.V.V?? . . ?
yet a mere lad of 12, one thought
seized his life, and that was "to do
His Father's will." These are his
words: "Whosoever shall do the will
of my Father which is in heaven, the
same is my mother and sister, and
brother." "My meat is to do the will
of Him that sent me." " I have finished
the work which Thou gavest me
to do." One thought took possession
of Him, one aid dominated his life,
one thing he lived for, and that was
to do His Father's will, and all the
plots and plans of men, all the inI
genuity of devils, could not make Him
swerve even a hair's breadth from this
2. And how about His self-mastery?
He was always calm and self-possessed.
Popularity did not puff Him up.
Praise did not turn His head. There
?-rrrV? r\ OO n
d.rt- HUgiity jltjw xncxi luuaj vtuu va-ii
stand popularity. The plaudits and
praises of men breed conceit and arrogance
in the hero of today. No so
with the Man of Gelailee. Popularity
drove Him to His knees. That's the
proper attitude for the hero when the
crowds are applauding him.
The more we study the life of Jesus
the more we are astonished at His
complete self-control under all circumstances
and in all places.
When men reviled Him, He reviled
not again. They taunted Him. They
LI ICU 111 CVCl ^ tUUVyVivauic ?> aj I.\J jjj. v
voke Him to anger, but all to no avail.
It was His magnificent self-control
that provoked Pilate and Herod, as
He stood before them and refused to
answer. Calmly did He face the howling,
hooting mobs. Fearlessly did He
stand before Pontius Pilate. Silently
3id He listen to the questions of
Herod and never for a moment lost
His complete self-mastery.
If you want to be like Him, young
men, surrender your life to Him. Have
pou a bad temper? He alone can enable
you to repress it, and keep you
from losing self-control.
Have you strong passions, that
3ver and anon burst forth, with a!
rehemence and a fury that sweep
everything before them. The Man of
Galilee can still them even as He
hushed the foam:ng sea of Galilee, or

3. What about the stability of the
Man of Galilee? No man can read the
story of the Gospel without being
struck with :he resolute determination
that He carried into every department
of His life. He was strong
as iron, solid as rock, and steadfast
as the eternal hills.
There are so many of us today who
lack stability. We lay our plans and
then we change them. There is a
proneness in us to shirk duty because
it is hard. When the path of
life ceases to be smooth, we draw
back like cringing cowards. There
are men of many noble heroic qualities,
whose lives are injured beyond
calculation just because of this weakness.
Today they are full of ardor,
hopes and plans and tomorrcw they
are discouraged and listless, their en
thusiasm is gone.
If that is your failing, friends, the
Man of Galilee can give you the needed
strength and stability of character.
He can put iron into the blood, and
steel into the nerve and can make
heroes out of the halting and the
4. Was there ever a sublimer courage
than that displayed by the Man of
When you and I want to cite some'
splendid example of courage, we
usually point to a Leonidas and his
300 Spartans keeping the pass of
Thermopylae; to William Tell hurling
back the Austrian hordes; to Wallace
in his life N and death struggle with
the English in maintaining the liberty
of his native heath; to Lord Nelson,
at sunset sailing into Lafalzar
Bay to attack the foe; to wasmngiun,
Patrick Henry, Grant and Lee and
scores of others of later years.
The courage of these men was nothing
compared to that of Jesus. Theirs
was the courage of the men who said:
"If a man strike you, strike him back."
jHis was the courage of pity, of forgiveness,
of silence, of long-suffering,
I of non-retaliation.
5. Consider the gentleness of the
Man of Galilee. He could face a
mob without quailing, and could calmly
look Pontius Pilate in the eye. as
His life trembled in the balance,
without fear, yet He took the little
babies in His arms, kissed them,
caressed them, and said: "Of such
is the Kingdom of heaven." How
tenderly He touched the poor, filthy,
nntmcit lener. How gently He dealt j
with the poor weeping penitnt woman,
'who wiped His feet with the hairs of
On the cross, even while in the
rthroes of death, He tenderly made
provision for His mother, and asked
John to give her a home. The little
boys were not afraid to clamber on
His knee. The- poor leper ostracized
by society, was not terrified at His
approach, but crept closer to. Him.
The forlorn, the outcast and the
friendless felt that in Him they had a
j 6. In closing, let us examine the
i unselfishness, of the Man of Galilee,
j Never was there a life so unseli
fishly given to others. His initial
act in leaving heaven to come down
^lere was the very essence of unselfishness.
As a boy he worked for the
. support of His mother. The last
'three years of His life were given entirely
for the benefit and blessing of
His fellow-countrymen. See Him
yonder?.working, toiling, teaching,
| healing, preaching, all tne aay long,
and, as the evening shadows "fall, retiring
into the desert to pray! Behold
Him traveling long and wearisome
journeys along the burning
paths of Galilee and Judea under that
hot Eastern sun in order to reach the
home of some suffering sinner, before
death came to claim His own.
Or see Him weeping ty the grave
of Lazarus and minglin? His tears
with the mourners! See Him plead
with the mob: "If therefore ye seek!
? t fj
; me, let these go tneir way:
I Tn His very death He thought of
j others. He thought in pity of the
! poor, ignorant Roman soldier who
i nailed Him to the cross. In His last j
| moment He extends to the penitent |
. thief the assurance: "Today shalt j
thou be with me in paradise." j
He lived to save men. H? jdied that
'you and I might live. He bore the
j cross that we might wear the crown. '
| Call the roll of the world's great
heroes! Compare the most illustrious!
with the Man of Galilee, and they fade
into insignificance. They are as little
foot-hills beside the towering
mountain-peaks. Oh! how magnificently
does the figure of Jesus loom
up to our view in the perfect picture
of ideal heroism! Examine Him from
any angle. Scrutinize Him from
every quarter, Put Him to every test.
Weight Him in whatever balance you
choose, and you'll find that He, and
He alone, is the world's id.eal hero.
I Young men, go for your hero, not
to Leonidas and his noble 300, not to
Horatius; keeping the bridge, not to
