Here we are on the island of Malta,
mother name for Melita. This island,
which has always been an important
commercial center, belonging at dif
ferent times to Phoenicia, to Greece,
o Kome, to Arabia, to Spain, to France,
now belongs to England. The area of
the islands is 100 square miles. It is
in the Mediterranean sea and of 6uch
clarity of atmosphere that Mount
'Aetna, 130 miles away, can be distinct
ly seen. The island is gloriously mem
orable because the knights of Malta
ior a long while ruled there, but most
famous because of the apostolic ship
wreck. The bestormed vessel on which
I'aul sailed had "laid to" on the star
board tack, and the wind was blowing
east-northeast, and, the vessel drifting
probably a mile and a half an hour.
She struck at what is now called St.
Paul's bay. Practical sailors have tak
en up the Bible account and decided be
yond controversy the place of the ship
wreck. But the island, which has so
rough a coast, is for the most part a
garden. Richest fruits and a profu
sion of honey characterized it in St.
Paul's time as well as now. The finest
cranges, figs and olives grew there.
When Paul and his comrades crawled
up the beach, saturated and hungry
from long abstinence from food and
chilled to the bone, the islanders,
though called barbarians because they
could not speak Greek, opened their
cloors to the shipwrecked unfortun
ates. Everything had gone to the bot
itora of the deep, and the barefooted,
bareheaded apostle and ship's crew
were in a condition to appreciate hos-pitalit-.
About 25 such men a few
years ago I found in the life station
near East Hampton, Long Island.
They had got ashore in the night from
the sea, and not a hat or shoe. had
they left. They found out, as Paul and
his fellow voyagers found out, that the
fea is the roughest of all robbers. My
ext finds the ship's crew ashore on
Malta and around a hot fire drying
themselves and with the best provision
the islanders can offer them. And
ithey go into government quarters for
ithree days to recuperate, Publius, the
ruler, inviting ther:, although he had
severe sickness in the house at the
time, his father down with a dangerous
illness. Yea, for three months they
stayed on the island, watching for a
ehip and putting the hospitalities of
the islanders to a severe test. But it
endured the test satisfactorily, and it
Is recorded for all the ages of time and
eternity to read and hear in regard to
the inhabitants of Malta: "The bar
barous people showed us no little kind
ness." Kindness! What a great word that
Is! It would take a reed as long as
that which the apocalyptic angel used
to measure Heaven to tell the length,
the breadth, the height of that munifi
cent word. It is a favorite Bible word,
and it is early launched in the book of
Genesis, caught up in the book of
Joshua, embraced in the book of Ruth,
fworn by in the book of Samuel,
crowned in the book of Psalms and en
throned in -many plivces in the New
Testament. Kindness! A word no
more gentle than mighty. I expect it
will wrestle me down before I get
through with it. It is strong enough
to throw an archangel. But it will be
well for us to stand around it and
,warm ourselves by its glow as Paul
nnd his fellow voyagers stood around
the fire on the Island of Malta, where
the Maltese made themselves immor
tal in my text by the way they treated
their victims of the sea. "The bar
barous people showed us no little kind
ness." Kindness! All definitions of that
multipotent word break down half
way. You say it is clemency, benign
ity, generosity; it is made up of good
.wishes; it is an expression of benefi
cence; it is a contribution to the hap
piness of others. Some one else says:
"Why, I can give you a definition of
liindness; it is sunshine of the soul; it
is affection perennial; it is a climatic
jrrace; it is the combination of all
praces; it is compassion; it is the per
fection of gentle manliness and wom
anliness." Are you all through? You
have made a dead failure in your defi
nition. It cannot be defined, but we
all know what it is, for we have all
felt its power. Some of you may have
felt it as Paul felt it, on some coast of
rock as the ship went to pieces, but
more of us have again and again in
Fome awful stress of life had either
from earth or Heaven hands stretched
out which "showed us no little kind
ness." There is kindness of disposition,
"kindness of word, kindness of act, and
there is Jesus Christ, the impersona
tion of all of them. Kindness! You
cannot affect it. You cannot play it as
apart. You cannot enact it. You can
not dramatize it. By the grace of God
rou must have it inside of you, an ever
lasting summer, or, rather, a combina
tion of June and October, the geniality
of the one and the tonic of the other.
It cannot dwell with arrogance or
spite or revenge or malevolence. At
Its first appearance in the soul all
these Amalekites and Gergishites and
Hittites and Jebusites must quit, and
quit forever. Kindness wishes every
body well every man well, every
woman well, every child well, every
bird well, every horse well, every dog
well, every cat well. Give this spirit
full swing, and you would have no
more need of societies for prevention
of cruelty to animals, no more need of
protective sewing woman's associa
tions, and it would dull every sword
until it would not cut skin deep, and
unwheel every battery till it could not
roll, and make gunpowder of no more
use in the world except for rock blast
ing or pyrotechnic celebration. Kind
ness is a spirit divinely implanted and
in answer to prayer, and then to be
sedulously cultivated until it fills all
the nature with a perfume richer and
more pungent than mignonette, and,
3 if yeni put a tuft of that aromatic
beauty behind the clock on the mantel
or in some corner where nobody can
see it, you find people walking about
your room looking this way and that,
and you ask them: "What are you
lookingfor?"andthey answer: "Where
is that flower?" So if one has in his
bouI this infinite sweetness of disposi
tion its perfume will whelm every
But are you waiting and hoping' for
some one to be bankrupted or exposed
or discomfited or in some way over
thrown, then kindness has not taken
possession of your nature. You are
wrecked on a Malta where there are no
oranges. You are entertaining a guest
so unlike kindness that kindness will
not come and dwell under the same
roof. The most exhausting and un
healthy and ruinous spirit on earth is
a revengeful spirit or retaliating spir
it, as I know by experience, for I have
tried it for five or ten minutes at a
time. When some mean thing has
been done me or said about me, I have
felt: "I will pay him in his own coin.
I will show him up. Theingrate! The
traitor! The liar! The villain!" But
five or ten minutes of the feeling has
been so unnerving and exhausting I
have abandoned it, and I cannot un
derstand how people can go about tor
turing themselves five or ten or twen
ty years, trying to get even with
somebody. The only way you will
ever triumph over your enemies is by
forgiving them and wishing them all
good and no evil. As malevolence is
the most uneasy and profitless and
dangerous feeling, kindness is the
most healthful and delightful. And
this is not an abstraction.. As I have
tried a little of the retaliatory feel
ing, so I have tried a little of the for
giving. I do not want to leave this
world until I have taken vengeance
upon every man that ever did me a
wrong by doing him a kindness. In
most of such cases I have already suc
ceeded, but there are a fewmalignants
whom I am yet pursuing, and I shall
not be content until I have in some
wise helped them or benefited them or
L.et us all pray for the spirit of kind
ness. It will settle a thousand ques
tions. It will change the phase of ev
erything. It will mellow through and
through our entire nature. It will
transform a lifetime. It is not a feel
ing got up for occasions, but perennial.
That is the reason I like petunias bet
ter than morning glories. They look
very much alike, and if I should put in
your hand a petunia and a morning
glory you could hardly tell which is
the petunia and which the morning
glory. But the morning glory blooms
only a few hours and then shuts up
for the day, while the petunia is in as
widespread a glow at 12 o'clock at
noon and six o'clock in the evening as
at sunrise. And this grace of kind
ness is not spasmodic, it is not inter
mittent, is not for a little while, but
it irradiates the whole nature all
through and clear on till the sunset
of our earthly existence.
Kindness! I am resolved to get it.
Are you resolved to get it? It does not
come by haphazard, but through cul
ture under the divine help. Thistles
grow without culture. Rocky moun
tain sage grass grows without culture.
Mullein stalks grow without culture.
But that great red rose in the con
servatory, its leaves packed on leaves,
deep dyed as though it had been
obliged to fight for its beauty and it
were still reeking with the carnage of
the battle, that rose needed to be cul
tured, and through long years its
floral ancestors were cultured. O God,
implant kindness in all our souls and
then give us grace to watch it, to en
rich it. to develop it!
Still further, I must speak of kind
ness of word. When you meet any
one, do you say a pleasant thing or
an unpleasant? Do you tell him of
an agreeable thing you have heard
about him or the disagreeable? When
he leaves you does he feel better or
does he feel worse? Oh, the power
of the tongue for the production of
happiness or misery! One would think
from the way the tongue is caged in
we might take the hint that it has
a dangerous power. First it is
chained to the back part of the
mouth by strong muscles. Then it is
surrounded by the teeth of the lower
jaw, so many ivory bars, and then
by the teeth of the upper jaw, more
ivory bars. Then, outside of all, are
the two lips, with the power of com
pression and arrest. And yet, not
withstanding these four imprison
ments or limitations, how many take
no hint in regard to the dangerous
power of the tongue, and the results
are laceration, scarification and
Oh, say the cordial thing! Say the
useful thing. Say the hospitable
thing. Say the helpful thing. Say
the Christlike thing. Say ' tie kind
thing. I admit that it. is easier for
some temperaments than for others.
Some are born pessimists, and some
are born optimists, and that demon
strates itself all through everything.
It is a cloudy morning. You meet a
pessimist, and you say: "What weath
er to-day?" He answers: "It's go
ing to storm," and umbrella under
arm and waterproof coat show that
he is honest in that utterance. On
the same block, a minute after, you
meet an optimist, and you say: "What
do you think of the commercial pros
pects?" and he says: "Glorious.
Crops not so good as usual, but for
eign demand will make big prices.
We are going to have such an autumn
and winter of prosperity as we have
never seen." On your way back to
your store you meet a pessimist mer
chant: "What do you think of the
commercial prospects?" you ask, and
he answers: "Well, I don't know.
Wheat and corn crop blasted in Kan
sas and Missouri, and the grain
gamblers will get their fist in, and
the hay crop is short in some places,
and in the southern part of Wiscon
sin they had a hailstorm, and our
business " is as dull as it ever was."
You will find the same difference in
judgment of character. A man of
good reputation is assailed and
charged with some evil deed. At the
first story the pessimist will believe
in guilt. "The papers said so, and
that's enough. Down with him!"
The optimist will say: "I don't be
lieve a word of it. I don't think that
a man that has been as useful and
seemingly honest for 20 years could
have got off track like that. There
are two sides to this story, and I will
wait to hear the other side before I
condemn him." My hearer, if you
are by nature a pessimist, make a
special effort by the grace of Cod to
extirpate the dolorous and the hyper
critical from your disposition. Be
lieve nothing against anybody until
the wrong is established by at least
two witnesses of integrity. And, if
guilt be proved, find out the extenuat
ing circumstances, if there are any.
Kindness! Let us, morning, noon and
night, pray for it until we get it.
"When you can speak a good word
for some one, speak it. If you can
conscientiously give a letter of recom
mendation, give it. Watch for oppor
tunities for doing good 50 years after
you are dead. All my life has been
affected by the letter of introduction
that Rev. D. Van Vranken, of New
Brunswick Theological seminary,
wrote for me, a boy under him, when
I was seeking a settlement in which
to preach the Gospel. That letter
gave me my first pulpit. Dr. Van
Vranken has been dead more than 30
vears. vet I feel the touch of that
I magnificent old professor. Strange
sensation was it when I received a
kind message from Rev. Thomas
Guard, of Baltimore, the great Meth-
! odist orator, six weeks after his
! death! By way of the eternal world?
Oh, no; by way of this world. I did
I" not meet the friend to whom he gave
j the message until nearly two months
. after Thomas Guard had ascended.
So you can start a word about some
one that will be on its travels and
! vigorous long after the funeral
i psalm has been sung at your obse
j quies. Kindness! Why, if 50 men all
aglow with it should walk through
the lost world methinks they would
almost abolish perdition.
Suppose all this assemblage and
all to whom these words shall come
by printer's type should resolve to
make kindness an overarching, under
girding and all pervading principle of
their life and then carry out the res
olution." Why, in six months the
whole earth would feel it. People
would say: "What is the matter? It
seems to me that the world is get
ting to be a better place to live in.
Why, life, after all, is worth living.
Why, there is Shylock, my neighbor,
has withdrawn his lawsuit of fore
closure against that man, and be
cause he had so much sickness in his
family he is going to have the house
for one year rent free. There is an
old lawyer in that young lawyer's of
fice, and do you know what he has
gone in there for? Why, he is help
ing to fix up a case which is too big
for the young man to handle, and the
white-haired attorney is hunting up
previous decisions and making out a
brief for the boy. Do you know that
a strange thing has taken place in the
pulpit, and all the old ministers are
helping the young ministers, and all
the old doctors are helping the young
doctors, and the farmers are assist
ing each other in gathering the har
vest, and for that farmer who is sick
the neighbors have madea "bee," as
they call it, and they have all turned
in to help him get his crops into the
garner? And they tell me that the
older and more skillful reporters
who have permanent positions on pa
pers are helping the' young fellows
who are just beginning to try and do
not know exactly how to do it. And
after a few erasures and interpola
tions on the reporter's pad they say:
"Now, here is a readable account of
that tragedy; hand it in, and I am
sure the managing editor will take
"And I heard this morning of a poor
old man whose three children were in
hot debate as to who should take care
of him in his declining days. The old
est son declared that it was his right,
because he was the oldest, and the
youngest said it was his right because
he was the youngest, and Mary said it
was her right because she better un
derstood her father's vertigo and
rheumatism and poor spells and knew
better how to nurse him, and the only
way the difficulty could be settled was
by the old man's promise that he
would divide the year into three parts
and spend a third of his time with each
one of them. And neighboring stores
in the same line of goods on the same
block are acting kindly to each other.
It seems to me that those words of
Isaiah are being fulfilled when he
says: 'The carpenter encouraged the
goldsmith and he that smoothed the
hammer, him that, smote the anvil,
saying, it is ready for the soldering.'
What is the matter? It seems to me
our old world is picking up. Why, the
millennium must be coming in. Kind
ness has'got the victory."
My hearers, you know and I know we
are far from that state of things. But
why not inaugurate a new dispensa
tion of geniality. If we cannot have a
millennium on a large scale, let us
have it on a small scale and under our
own vestments. Kindness! If this
world is ever brought to God, that is
the thing that will do it. You cannot
fret the world up, although you may
fret the world down. You - cannot
scold it into excellence or reforma
tion or godliness.
And while we take the matchless
kindness from God may it be found
that we have uttered our last bitter
word, written our last cutting para
graph, done our last retaliatory action,
felt our last revengeful heart throb.
And it would not be a bad epitaph for
any of us if, by the grace of God, from
this time forth we lived such benefi
cent lives that the tombstone's chisel
could appropriately cut upon the plain
slab that marks our grave a sugges
tion from the text: "He showed us no
little kindness." But not until the last
child of God has got ashore from the
earthly storms that drove Him on the
rocks like Mediterranean Eurocly
dons, not until all the thrones of
Heaven are mounted, and all the con
querors crowned, and all the harps and
trumpets and organs of Heaven are
thrummed or blown or sounded and
the ransomed of all climes and ages
are in full chorus under the jubilant
swing of angelic baton, and we shall
for thousands of years have seen the
river from under the throne rolling
into the "sea of glass mingled with
fire," and this world we now inhabit
shall be so far in the past that only a
stretch of celestial memory can re
call that it ever existed at all, not un-
i til then will we understand what Nc-
hemiah calls "the great kindness," and
David calls "the marvelous kindness,"
and Isaiah calls "the everlasting kind
ness" of God.

Vice President Roosevelt's Speech
Legislation Which Shall Shield
Wave-Workers Justice In Our
Dealing- with Foreign
In an address at the state fair
grounds, Minneapolis, Monday, Sep
tember 2, Vice President Roosevelt
made some notable declarations which,
now that he is president, will have
some special interest for the people.
In the course of his remarks he paid
a high tribute to the character and
energy of his hearers, descended, he
said, from a race of pioneers which
had pushed westward into the wilder
ness and laid the foundations for new
commonwealths. The men with ax,
and pick, and plow, who, he said, had
pushed to completion the dominion of
our people over the American wilder
ness had shown by their qualities of
daring, endurance and far-sightedness
that they recognized in practical form
the fundamental law of success in
American life the law of worthy
work; the law of resolute, high en
deavor. Continuing, he said: "It
seems to me that the simple accept
ance of this fundamental fact of Amer
ican life will help us to start aright
in facing not a few of the problems
that confront us from without and
"We cannot possibly do our best
work as a nation unless all of us know
how to act in combination as well as
to act each individually for himself.
This acting in combination can take
many forms, but of course its most
effective form must be when it comes
in shape of law that is, of action by
the community as a whole through the
"No hard and fast rule can be laid
down as to where our legislation shall
stop in interfering between man and
man, between interest and interest.
All that can be said is that it is highly
undesirable on the one hand to weaken
individual initiative, and, on the other
hand, that in a constantly increasing
number of cases we shall find it neces
sary in the future to shackle cunning
as in the past we have shackled force.
Legislation for Wage-Workers.
"It is not highly desirable, but nec
essary, that there should be legisla
tion which shall carefully shield the
interests of wageworkers and which
shall discriminate in favor of the hon
est and humane employer by removing
the disadvantage under which he
stands when compared with unscrup
ulous competitors who have no con
science and will do right only under
fear of punishment.
"Nor can legislation stop with what
are termed labor questions. The vast
individual and corporate fortunes, the
vast combinations of capital which
have marked the development of our
industrial system, create new condi
tions and necessitate a change from
the old attitude of the state and na
tion toward prosperity.'
There was, he contended, but the
scantiest justification for most of the
outcry against men of wealth, as such,
and it ought to be unnecessary, he
said, to state that any appeal which
finally entails the possibility Of law
lessness and violence is an attack upon
the fundamental properties of Amer
"Our interests are at bottom com
mon," he continued. "In the long run
we go up or down together. Yet more
and more it is evident that the state,
and if necessary the nation, has got to
possess the right cf supervision and
control as regards the great corpora
tions which are its creatures; par
ticularly as regards the great business
combinations which derive a portion
of their importance from the existence
of some monopolistic tendency."
As to Foreign Relations.
As to our relations with foreign pow
ers Vice President Roosevelt said, that
our nation, while first of all seeing to
its own domestic well being, must not
shrink from playing its part among the
great nations without.
"Our duty," he said, "may take many
forms in the future as it has taken
many forms in the past. Nor is it pos
sible to lay down a hard and fast rule
for all cases. We must ever face the
fact of our shifting national needs, of
the always changing opportunities
that present themselves. But we may
be certain of one thing, whether we
wish it or not, we cannot avoid here
after having duties to do in the face of
other nations. All that we can do is to
settle whether we shall perform those
duties well or ill."
He counseled courtesy and respect
in all dealings with any foreign power
with whom the government might come
in contact. On this point he added:
"Let us make it evident that we in
tend to do justice. Then let us make it
equally evident that we will not toler
ate injustice being done to us in re
turn. Let us further make it evident
that we use no words which we are
not prepared to back up with deeds,
and that while our speech is always
moderate, we are ready and willing to
make it good. Such an attitude will be
the surest possible guarantee of that
self-respecting peace, the attainment
of which is and must ever be the prime
aim of a self-governing people."
Mnat Enforce Monroe Doctrine.
"This is the attitude we must take as
regards the Monroe doctrine.
"We do not by this policy intend to
sanction any policy of aggression by
one American commonwealth at the ex
pense of any other, nor any policy of
commercial discrimination against any
foreign power whatsoever. Commer
cially, as far as this doctrine is con
cerned, all we wish is a fair field and
no favor, but if we are wise we shall
strenuously insist that, under no pre
text whatsoever, shall there be any
territorial aggrandizement on Ameri
can soil by any European power, and
this, no matter what form the terri
torial aggrandizement may take."
The vice president concluded with a
discussion of the subject of expansion
and a review of what had been accom
plished in Cuba and the Philippines to
ward a free and independent common
wealth of the former, and, "ultimate
'y, a self-gove ruins: people" of th,e lat

There is, or rather was, years ago in this
city, a gentleman who did a thriving busi

was well known to hundreds of people as a
bright and original sort of man. Another
man, who had not seen him for nearly 20
years, met him a short time ago, and after
inquiries as to his health asked if he was
in the same business.
"Oh, no," was the reply. "I'm presiding
The man who was inquiring about him was
really phased by thia answer, and remarked
that he presumed it was his ignorance, but
he must admit he derived no idea of his
business from the statement thaf the for
