These words also recognize far
reaching influences. Job probably
had no adequate idea of the distance
of the worlds mentioned from our
world, but he knew them to be far

Paul, who was all the time saying
important things, said nothing more
startlingly suggestive than when he
declared: "None of us liveth or
dieth to himself." Words, thoughts,
actions, have an eternity of flight,
fluences of the Seven Stars, as they
were called, so we cannot arrest or
turn aside the good projected long
ago. Those influences were started
centuries before our cradle was
rocked and will reign centuries after
our graves are dug. Oh, it is a tre
mendous thing to live! God help us
to live aright.
Astronomers can easily locate the
Pleiades. They will take you into
their observatories on a clear night
and aim their revealing instrument
toward the part in the heavens where
those seven stars have their habi
tude, and they will point to the con
stellation Taurus, and you can see
for yourself. But it is impossible
to point to influences far back that
have affected our character and will
affect our destiny. We know the in
fluences near by paternal, maternal.
conjugal but by the time we have j
gone back two generations or at t
most three our investigations falter
and fail. Through the modern in
teresting habit of searching back to
find the ancestral tree we ma3' find
a long list of names, but they are
only names. The consecration or
abandonment of some one 200 years ;
ago was not recorded. It would not
be so important if you and I by our

Notice also in my text the influ-
ence of other worlds upon this world. I
We all regard the effect which our
continent has upon other continents
or one hemisphere upon the other
hemisphere. Great harvest or drought
affects the other side of our world.
A panic in Wall street, New York, has
its echo in Lombard street and the
bourse. The nations of the earth
cablegrammed together all feel the
same thrill of delight or shock of woe.
But we do not appreciate the influ
ence of other worlds upon our world.
The autb-or oi viJ' text rouses us to
the consideration. It takes all the
worlds -of known and unknown Nas
tronomy to keep our world in its or
bit, every world dependent on other
worlds. The stellar existence is felt
all through the heavens. Every con
stellation is a sisterhood. Our planet
feels the benediction of Alcyone and
all the other stars of the "Pleiades.
Yea, there are two other worlds that
decide the fate of our world, its re
demption or its demolition. Those
two worlds are the headquarters of
angelology and demonology. From
the one world came Christ, come min
istering spirits, come all gracious in
fluences. From the other wor1"1 L
all satanic and diabolic influences.
From that world of moral right rose
the power that wrecked our poor
world 6,000 years ago, and all the
good work done since then has not
been able to get our world out of the
breakers. But the signals of dis
tress have been hoisted and the life
lines are out, and our world's re
lease is certain. The good influences
of the "consecrated people in our
world will be centupled by the help
from the heavenly world, and the Di
vine power will overcome the de
moniac. O man, O woman, expand
your idea and know the magnitude
of a contest in which three worlds are
specially interested. - From all the
seven worlds which my text calls the
Pleiades there come no such powerful
influences - as from the two worlds
that I am jiow mentioning. My only
hope for this world is in the reen- j
forcement that is to come from an
other world. But that is promised,
and so I feel as sure of the ratifica
tion of all evil as though looking out
of my window to-day I saw the parks
and the gardens flowering into anoth
er paradise and the apocalyptic angel
flying through the midst of Heaven
with the news that the kingdoms of
this world have become the kingdoms
of our Lord. -
My text called Job and calls us to
consider "the swest Influence. Wo
put too much emphasis upon the acid
ities of life, upon the irritations of
life, upon the disappointments of
life. Ammianus Marcellinus said thai
Chaldea was in olden times overrun
with lions, but many of them lost
their power because, the great swamps
produced many gnats that would get
into the' eyes of the lions, and the
lions to free themselves of the gnats
would claw their own eyes out and
then starve. And in our time many a
lion has been overcome by a gnat.
The little stinging annoyances of life
keep us from appreciating the sweet
influences. And how many of these
last there are! Sweet influences of
home, however plain it may be! That
is the harbor into which we sail.
That is the goal for which we run.
That is the place where we rest.

Mrs. Ellen Ripley, Chaplain Ladies Aid,
Grand Army of the Republic, No. 7, 222
10th Ave., N. E., Minneapolis, Minn.,
Strongly Endorses Lydia E. Pinkham s
" Dear Mrs. Pinkham : Your Vegetable Compound cured mo
of ulceration of the womb, and getting such a complete cure I felt that
the medicine had genuine merit and was well worth recommending
to other sick women. -
For fifteen years I have been your friend. I have never written you
before, but I have advised hundreds of women to take your medicine, in
fact it is the only real reliable remedy I know of for a sick woman.
' I have not yet found a case 6f ovarian or womb trouble which
has not been relieved or cured by the faithful use of IiYdia E.
Pinkliam's "Vegetable Compound.
You have brought health to hundreds of women in Minneapolis as
you have no doubt to others over th country." Mrs. Ellen Ripley.
$5000 FORFEIT IF THE ABOVE LETTER IS XOT GENUINE.
"When women are troubled with irregular or painful menstruation,
weakness, leucorrhcea, displacement or ulceration of the womb, that bearing-down
feeling, inflammation of the ovaries, backache, flatulence,
general debility, indigestion, and nervous prostration, they should
remember there is one tried and true remedy. L.ydia E. Pinkliam's
Vegetable Compound at once removes such troubles.
No other medicine in the world has received such widespread and
unqualified endorsement. No other medicine has such a record of cures
of female troubles. Refuse to buy any other medicine.
