Seer of Faculty.
The community alwa.Ts looks forward
with a great deal of pleasure to the an
nual closing exercises of the Moses Levi
Memorial Institute. and on last Sunday
morning, notwithstanding the lowering
clouds a large congregation attended
the religious service in the Institute
hall. conducted by Rfev. Melton Clark
of Florence. The singing was under
the direction of -Mrs. W. C. Davis, with
Iiss Edna Brockinton presiding at the
organ. This choir was well trained
and the music rendered by them was
highly pleasing to the vast congrega
tion and added greatly to the occasion.
Rev. 'Melton Clark took his text from
22d chapter 1. Chronicles, latter clause
16th verse "Arise therefore and be
doing, and the Lord be with thee."
The discourse was one of the strongest
presentations ever delivered in the
Institute. There was no attempt at
meaningless oratorical display but it
was a forceful deliverance of -ractical
thought. impressive and instructive.
Mr. Clark is a delightful speaker with
the happy faculty of holding the atten
tion of his hearers, and making his
argument so clear,that even the young
est of the children could not fail to
grasp the meaning.
When the service was over the ex
pressions of admiration could be heard
from every side. The preacher sim
ply captivated this large and cultured
congregation, and in the evening he
preached another very strong sermon
to a large congregation in the Presby
The following is not the full text of
she sermon, but we think it is a good
1 Chron. 22-16: "Arise and be Doing
and the Lord be with Thee."
These are the closing words of the
charge, which David delivered to his
son, Solomon, in reference to the build
ing of the Temple. David is now an
old man. Immediately after speaking
these urgent, rousing words to his son,
he,ws we are told in the Scriptures,
being "old and full of days, made Sol
omon. his son, king over Israel in his
stead. These last words of King David
to his son and successor are great in
their wisdom and pathos. To catch
their force we must vivify the scene.
In our imaginations we mast vitalize
the characters. The words must not
come to our minds with didactic force
merelv. We must supply them again
with the power and influence of the
personal element. We must remember
and realize that this was the king
speaking to his son, who was immedia
tely to ascend the throne. That it
was the ambitious man who had pre
pared abundantly for the work, giving
directions to the one who was to carry
out and perfect his cherished ideas.
That it was the father who knew how
great was the labors and responsibility
that he was now imposing upon his
best beloved son. Hear this kingly man
who had prepared abundantly before
his death for this great work as he
speaks. Somehow when we consider
these words in this way. they seem to
draw us very near to the heart of this
great man. It is hard to say which is
most clearly revealed here. The heart
of the King or the heart of the Father,
or the heart of the Man. It is almost
like a heart's confessional when we
hear him say, "it was in my heart to
build an house unto the name of the
Lord, my God. But the word
of the Lord came to me
saing: Thou has shed blood abund
antly, and has made great wars. Thou
shalt not build an house unto My Name,
because thou hast shed much blood
upon the earth in My sight." But
again the tender accents of an affec
tionate father, are saying: "Now, my
son, the Lord be with 0Thee.'' The
words which undoubtedly display the
greatest wisdom and which show us the
hought and reflection of the kingly
statesman are those recorded in the
ast clause of the 14th verse: "And
hou mayest add thereto." He has
ust referred to the preparations which
e has made for this work; to the gold
and silver, the brass and iron, the
imber and stone. He says these I have
ollected in abundance' for the work,
"and thou mayest add thereto." This
cause manifests David's foresight, his
cmmon sense, his profound wisdom.
They show us that he did not think
that he had done everything, great as
his preparation had been. And since
his preparation had been so exhaus
tive, his wisdom so searching, and his
ability so great, this permission given
o Solotnon shows us that David thought
that it was not probable that his or any
ne's work could be complete in this1
world. And this is the truth. Both
nature and revelations teach us that
one man's work for God fits into, and
follows on another man's work. One
soweth and another reapeth, and
ftener one soweth for another to reap.
No man's work in this world is a com
plete work. The sooner we learn this
lesson from David the better. The very
best a man can do is to lay the founda
tion or prepare the way for another's
work. Test this principle by life ex
perience. Isolate any man's work and
t appears to be a failure. If we takp
the histories of the greatest lives of
the world we will find only so many
illustrations of this truth. When we
isolate their lives we have to say of
them either that the work is incom
plete, or that they fell or were over
thrown or were rejected. Ceasar, Na
poleon. Luther, Calvin, Knox, Glad
stone, and Lee. -These all furnish with
their lives illustrations of this truth.
These lives when isolated appear to be
failures. But connect those lives with
the past and the future, and what
theni' The man may have fallen, or
may have been overthrown or rejected,
but his work stood. or even when this
was destroyed the influence of the life
remained and could not be robbed of
its power. Look at the life in its rela
tion to the past and study it as to its
effect upon the future and it will be
come plain that every wvell lived and
worthy life fits into God's purpose and
promotes the welfare of man. And when
thus properly seen it will be manifest
hnat no worthy life can be a failure.
Some must retard as the race is tend
ig to evil and error, and be censured
therefor, and scornfully termed "slow"
and "behind the times." Others must
lead the race, boldly and toilfully, in
loneliness blazing the way through the
pathless t wilderness of unkown joyless
regions. They will be condemned and
probably destroyed by their fellowmen,
as dangerous and radical. But these
are known and revered by grateful
after generations, as martyrs to hu
manity. Who "lived before their
time"~and suffered for so doing.
David evidently foresaw the possi
bility of new demands in the future
and he cheerfully accepted his position
in life as that if one who prepared for,
the work of another, and so he said to
Soloion: "Thou mayest add thereto.'"
David now concluded his instructions
with this last solemn and urgent
charge: "Arise'and be doing, and the
Lord be with Thee."
1.. "Arise." The three ideas embodied
in this charge are essential to the suc
essful accomplishment of every great
and worthy work. Solomon was the
man appointed by God to do this work.
David ~tells Solomon in this address,
that long ago God., had revealed this
fact to him. and yet thei work will not
be begun until Solomon shall himself
"arise." Until Solomon shall prepare
himself for the doing of the work. Not
withstanding the fact that wood and
stone are abundant the architect must
devise before the building can go up.
So the fact that David had prepared
before his death was no reason why
Solomon was at liberity tO do nothing.
Na, but on the contrary this very
fact that David had prelpared rendere~d
it more imperative that Solomon shoul d
himself prepare. So. I take it, is it
true of us. We are not to rest in supine
idleness, because our fathers have
wrought and have given us many
things conducive to comfort and hap
ness and peace were given unto Isreal
that work might be accomplished; that
the great hbuse might be built to the
glory of Jehovah. and because our
fathers were diligent and faithful in
time of theii- affliction, and prepared
many things ior us, for the very reason
we must now arise and prepare our
selves for a greater work. We need to
arise and shake ourselves and gird up
our loins for the toil and labor of the
day. We need to arise to get a
hiaher and broader view of life and
things. We have been looking at things
for too long a time from the same and
too low a standpoint. We need to real
ize that greater things than we now
realize are possible to us. Arise and
see. A part of the preparation for our
life's work. is for us to see what others
have done. and to see that there are
others in circumstances similar to our
own, who are doing a greater work
than we are doing. We have been
restina too loug, let us arise to meet
:. "Be Doing." It is well for us to re
member that there are some people
who devote all of their time to making
preparation to begin work, and they
never find time to work. It is true that
"getting ready" is very important, and
frequently takes much time. But what
does gettingy ready amount to if the
work is not done? David says to Solo
mon: "Arise, be doing." You remem
ber how it was with the tribes of Reu
ben, Gad, Dan and Asher, when Israel
was about to go to meet Sisera in bat
tle. The urgent call was sent to all the
tribes to come to the help of the na
tion. But while the people of Zebulum
and Naphtali and the rest jeoparded
their lives. Reuben and Gad remained
in the meadows with their sheap. and
Dan and Asher remained with their
boats at the seashore. It is said of them:
"By the water courses of Reuben there
were great resolves of heart, and there
were great searchings of heart."
While they ought to have been doing
they were still resolving and searching
their hearts, weighing the matter, and
resolving again, each time coming to
the same conclusion as to their duty,
and yet going back, all over the mat
ter, seaching again, and again resolv
ing. So they did nothing, and were
cursed for their ,indifference and infi
"Arise, be doing." We are reminded,
both by the expression and the energy
of the words of the preacher: "What
soever thy hand findeth to do, do it
with thy might." There are three im
portant ideas presented by these words:
1. Our duty, the work within our
2. The sense of individual responsi
bilitv. "Whatsoever thy hand." The
dutv of each one is the work that his
or her hand can reach. This is the
obvious import of the wo.rds. ,To re
ceive in earnest the work nearest will
appear the most urgent, and there will
be no difficulty about finding work
within hands reach.
3. "Thy hand." It is your own work
that you are to do. You cannot decide
what-your neighbor's duty is, nor can
you devolve your duty upon your ]
neighbor. And oh! the power andlim
portance of this thought. Your duty
ought to be done well, regardless of
how or what your neighbor is doing.
"To every man . his work" is God's
great labor law. As some one has said:
"If others be unfaithful be not thou
Could this idea be fixed in the minds
and practiced initheilives of.our-people
how wonderful would be our life. Let
each one say I will do my part and use 1
the good acquired. But no, some one
says, "there is no use in my working
and I won't work, for this one and that I
one does not do this or that. There
were many drones doubtless in Israel,
hut David says to Solomon, "Arise, be
doing." You at least, in this kingdom,
must be diligent and faithful and zeal
3. "The Lord be with Thee." This is
the most important idea in the text,
viz: A recognition of the limited value
of human exertion. We should esti- 1
mate human exertion but at its true 1
value. It has a value, we do not deny
this. We emphasize this value when 1
we properly limit it, and we make i
more useful when we rightly estimate
it. The question is not what men may
think of human power and exertion,
but what is it worth in the sight of
God; in other words, what is it really
worth in eternity? There are some
things that we can do of ourselves and
ought to do for self: some things that
you must do, for no one else can do
them for you. There are some other
things that it is useless for a man to
try to do unaided. These things re
quire the inftinite power of God to solye
them, and to begin them, and to bring
them to perfection.
Man is prone to forget this. He likes
to feel independent. This is folly. All
nature and experience testifies to the
utter folly of independence.
We are dependent creatures. The
only question is upon whom shall I
depend, God or man.
"Except the Lord build the house,
they labor in vain that build it. Ex
ept the Lord keep the city, the
watchman waketh but in vain."
The notion of a self-made man" is an1
absurdity. God has made us, and not
we ourselves. Some men receive more
help thaa others, and some do more
work than others, but all are helped

of a man there are many agencies at

The blacksmith may be as truly a
servant of God as the minister, and he
may be as truly doing God's work
while at his forge as the minister
while preaching. Therefore, let us all,
no matter what our calling or work,
offer our service to God, and learn to
depend on him, and not on man or
circumstances for the direction of our
energies, and let us depend on Him
first and always for that joy, without
which our lives will be empty and
barren. Therefore, "Arise, and be
doing,,and the Lord be with Thee."

.'- Can You Count ra 7niont .
Tho following remarkable calculation
on the length of time which it would
take a person to count 1,000,000,000 ap
peared in the English Mathematician:
What is a billion? The reply Is simple.
In England a billion Is a million times
a million. This is quickly written and :
quicker still pronounced, but no man is :
able to count It. You will count 160 or .
170 a mlnute, but let us suppose that ;
you go up as high as 200 a minute, hour :
after hour. At that,,rate you would 2
count 12,000 an hour, 288,000 a day or
105,120,000 in a year. Let us suppose :
now that Adam, at the beginning of his
existence, had begun to count, had con- e
tinued to do so and was counting still. E
Had such a thing been potsible he
would -not yet have finished the task
of counting a billion. To count a bil- 0
lion would require a person to count E
200 a minute for a period of 9,512 E
years 542 days 5 hours 20 minutes, :
provided that he should count con
tinuously. But suppose we allow the
counter twelve hours daily for rest, 0
eating and sleeping. Then he would
need 18,025 years 310 days 10 hours 45
minutes in which to complete the task.

Don't half as much a matter of never spending a cent'

way, you've got to wear clothes of soie kind this sum
mer, a barrel or figleaf costume wouli be economical
enough, but hardly appropriate. And the heavy, uncom
fortable clothes you've been wearing are no more suitable
for these sizzing days than -the coolest barrel ever coop

we've said the best thing about Clothes. Drop in anyway
