Thvoo Voices from tho Tomb.
There are three voices coming from
the tomb the voiee of inli lelity, the
voice of nature, and that of revela
tion. The soul is lumber iru and
thirsting lor u knowledge of what is
beyond. Tne lingern of death are
reaching for the hunt strings, and
the immortality within calls out for
light. The road is becoming dark.
What is there beyond? The dying
man calls on infidelity for an answer.
He hvars a voice, but it is all dark.
There is nothing of certainty. There
is no hope.
The materialist comes forward to
answer the question propounded to
infidelity. He says there is nothing
beyond the tomb.
Life is the result of organism, life
ceases. This is no satisfaction to the
longing soul. With this theory, man
is no better than a brute. The Pan
theist answers, saying, "God is every
thing. There is no personal God."
If the father lias no personality, the
children can have none. All we can
be sure of is this present existence.
The agnostic replies, "There may
be, but I do not know." The not
knowing is that which distresses. A
state of doubt is the most painful.
The hungry soul must feed upon
The atheist says, "There is noth
ing beyond; there is no God; there
is nothing but law." A world with
out a God is a dark picture no eer
tainty, no hope.
The soul, burning with thirst, turns
away from infidelity, battled and
sorrowful. A positive nature cannot
be satisfied with a negative answer.
The question is still asked, "What is
there beyond the tomb?" Nature
answers, "There is a God ; man is
mortal." The intuition of man says
there is a God. No man can discover
the existence of God, for he sees Him
directlv. 1 he recognition ot uod is
universal and necessary. There is a
universal longing for and belief in
some kind of immortality. Every
effect must have a cause ; all about us
are effects ; there must be a first cause,
which is God.
Men unprejudiced by theory will
usually speak forth the truths of na
ture. Even the sceptic may at times
reach above his theories and speak
the seLtirnents of human nature.
The general progress of philosophy
has been in favor of Christianity.
The Greek philosophers, in the lan
guage of Paul, "felt after God." Au
gustine, who in his youth was a stu
dent of the philosophers, said, "Plato
nude me know the true God, and
Jesus Christ showed me the way to
The reaction from experimental
philosophy to the intuitive brings
man face to face with God. The
movement of thought is like the
swinging of the pendulum of a clock
which is ever moving onward.
Thought is ever oscillating between
fanaticism and scepticism, but, from
necessity, settles at last at truth
I'huosophy arises and answers,
"There is something that endures be
yond. The shuttle is moving. There
is a weaver behind the shuttle. Some
thing subsists beyond the tomb."
The poet is pre-eminently the man
of nature. The voice of the true poet
is nature the voice of God for what
is nature but God's thought material
ized. The doctrine of immortality
with rewards and punishments in the
future, has been taught by a line of
poets from Homer (8o0 B. C.) down to
this present time. Scientists mayde
ny the existence after death, but the
poet must hold to the truth. Shake
speare, the great poet of humanity,
plays on the chords of human nature,
when he makes Hamlet, about to
commit suicide, soliloquize upon
'The undiscovered country from whose
No traveler returns."
There is a beautiful story of the
wife of Little Wolf, an Iowa chief.
She accompanied her husband on a
mission to London, where she lost
her fourth and last child. Her grief
caused her to lose her hold on life.
Her husband tried to console and
bring her back to life, but her con
stant reply was: "No.no, my four
children recall mo, I see them by
the side of tho Great Spirit. They
stretch out their arms to me, and are
astonished that I do not joiti them."
The voice of nature, the poets and
philosophers respoud, "There is hope
beyond the tomb."
Hut hope is not enough. The
Christian, rising above the doubts
and darkness of infidelity, inspired
by the voice of nature, rests in full
confidence in revelation, and when

At the markets they found officials

"To see that the meat is healthy,"
was the reply.
"If a man should eat a piece of un

"Why certainly not!"

Virtues and Graces. !
OliieiiL'o Advance. '
"Virtues without graces are rug
ged. Graces without virtues are
weak. Virtues and graces have the
strength of beauty and the beauty of
strength. The pillars of the virtues
should be crowned with the vines
of the graces. A man who has the
cardinal virtues without the cardinal
graces is hardly more than half a
man. He has prudence, theselfward
duties he performs promptly; he is
just, the duties towards his fellows lie
performs with alacrity ; he is a model
husband, a model father ; he is exact
in his benevolence. He has fortitude.
He has the patience of Job and the
He also has the
RELIGIOUS AND EDUCATIONAL.
sense of order ; he has a time and
place for everything and everything
in its time and place. He never
oversteps the bounds; he always
steps when and where he ought to
step. Such a man, poasessed of the
cardinal virtues only, would be an
automaton. He would lack heart,
love, life. A character which thus
embodies the cardinal virtues should
be adorned with those graces of char
acter which we call minor, but which
are like certain minor keys in music,
the sweetest, and without which
the major would be heavy and dis
cordant. Tender sympathies, loving
ensibilities should be intertwined
with the great and strong virtues.
Those who remember the Ten Com
mand menf a should not forget the
Beatitudes. The blessings of the
fifth of Matthew are to twine them
selves about the cold, white columns
of the twentieth of Exodus. The
sweet strains of the Sermon on the
Mount should be heard in the thun
ders of Sinai. The blessings i,f the
poor in spirit' should be wreathed
round the character of him who wor
ships the Lord Jehovah. The ble?
sings of the peacemaker is to adorn
him who revers the Sabbath. Tin
blessing of the merciful is to belong
to those who honor father and moth
er, and the blessing of the pure in
heart the sight of God is the pos
session ot those who uo not take
God's name in vain. Virtues and
graces are to be united in each man."
