Not taking any such responsibility in

imply assert that there are in it sug
gestions of many things in our time.
Our eyes dilate and our heart quick
ens in its pulsations as we reau oi
events in the third century, the sixth
century, the fourteenth century, but
there were more far-reaching events
crowded into the nineteenth century
than into any other, and the last 20
years eclipse any preceding 20. We
read in the daily newspapers of events
announced in one paragraph and with
out any special emphasis events
which a Herodotus, a Josephus, a
Xenophon, a Gibbon would have taken
whole chapters or whole volumes to
elaborate. Looking out upon our
time we must cry out, in the woras oi
the text: "Wonders in the heavens
and in the earth."
I propose to show vou that the time
in which we live is wonderful for dis
aster and wonderful for blessing, for
there must be lights and shades in this
picture as in all others. Need I argue
that our time is wonderful for disas
ter? Our world has had a rough time
since bv the hand of God it was bowled
out into space. It is an epileptic earth

pounding it with sledge hammer of

Hut it seems to us as if the last hun

earthquake is only a volcano hushed

them so far down beneath the reach of
human obsequies that it may be said
of many a one of them, as it was said
of Moses: "The Lord buried him."
Italy, all Europe weeping, all Chris
tendom weeping, where there were
hearts to sympathize and Christians to
pray. Hut while the nations were
measuring that magnitude of disaster,
measuring it not with golden rod like
that with which the angel measured
heaven, but with the black rule of
death. Java, of the Indian archipelago,
the most fertile island of all the earth,

and mountain after mountain goes
down and city after city until that is

ghastliest catastrophe. One hundred
thousand people dying, dead!
Look at the disasters epidemic. I
speak not of the plague in the fourth
century that ravaged Europe and in
Moscow and the Neapolitan domin
ions and Marseilles wrought such
terror in the eighteenth century,
but I look at the yellow fevers, and
the choleras and the diphtherias and
the scarlet fevers and the typhoids
of our time. From Hurdwar, India,
where every twelfth year 3,000,000
devotees congregate, th caravans

an "extra" here and there between.
Blessings of Gospel proclamation:
Do you know that nearly all the mis
sionary societies have been born with
in a hundred years and nearly all the
Bible societies ami nearly all the
great philanthropic movements?
Christianity is on the march, while in
fidelity is dwindling into imbecility.
While infidelity is tius dwindling the
wheel of Christianity is making about
a thousand revolutions a minute. All
the copies of Shakespeare and of Ten
nyson and of Disraeli and of any ten
of the most popular writers of the
da3 less in number than the copies of
the Bible going out from our printing
presses. A few years ago in six
weeks more than 2,000,000 copies of
the New Testament purchased not
given away, but purchased, because
the -world will have it. Th" most pop
ular book to-day is the Bible, and the
mightiest institution is the church,
and the greatest name among the
nations and more honored than any is
the name of Jesus.
Wonders of self-sacrifice: A cler
gyman told me in the northwest that
for six years he was a missionary at
the extreme north, living 400 miles
from a postofiice, the thermometer 40
degrees below zero, he slept out of
doors in winter, wrapped in rabbit
skins woven together. I said: "Is it
possible? You do not mean 40 de
grees below zero?" He said: "I do.
and I was happy." All for Christ!
Where is there any other being that
will rallj' such enthusiasm? Mothers

There may be many years of hard

Christ, descend! Scarred temple, take

These things I say because I want
you to be alert. I want you to be
watching all these wonders unrolling
from the heavens and the earth. God
has classified them, whether calamit
ous or pleasing. The Divine purposes
are harnessed in traces that cannot
break and in girths that cannot slip
and in buckles that cannot loosen
and are driven by reins they must
answer. I preach no fatalism. A
swarthy engineer at one of the
depots at Dakota said: "When will
you get on the locomotive and take
a ride with us?" "Well," I said,
"now, if that suits you." So I got
on one side of the locomotive, and a
Methodist minister, who was also in
vited, got on the other side, and be
tween us were the engineer and the
stoker. The train started. The en
gineer had his hand on the agitated
pulse of the great engine. The
stoker shoveled in the coal and hut
the door with a loud clang. A vast
plain slipped under us, and the hills
swept by, and that great monster on
which we rode trembed and bounded
and snorted and raged as it hurled
us on. I said to the Methodist min
ister on the other side of the loco
motive: "My brother, why should
ministers quarrel about the decrees
and free agency? You see that
track, that firm track, that iron
track; that is the decree. You see
this engineer's arm; that is free
agencj. How beautifully they work
together! They are going to take us
through. We could not do without
the track, and we could not do with
out the engineer."
So I rejoice day by day. Work for
all to do, and we may turn the crank
of the Christian machinery this way
or that, for we are free agents. But
there is the track laid so long ago
no one remembers it laid by the
hand of the Almighty God in sockets
that no terrestrial or Satanic pres
sure can ever affect. And along the
track the car of the world's redemp
tion will roll and roll to the Grand
Central depot of the millennium. 1
have no anxietj' about the track. I
am onlv afraid that for our indo
lence and unfaithfulness God will dis
charge us and get some other stoker
and some other engineer. The train
is going through with us or without
us. So, my brethren, watch all the
events that are going by. If things
seem to turn out right, give wings
to your joy. If things seem to turn
out wrong, throw out the anchor of
faith and hold fast.
There is a house in London where
Peter the Great of Bussia lived
awhile when he was moving through
the land incognito and in workman's
dress that he might learn ship car
pentry, by which he could supply the
needs of his people. A stranger was
visiting at that house. "What's iu
that box?" The owner said: "I don't
know. That box was there when I
got the house, and it was there when
my father got it. We haven't had
any curiosity to look at it. I guess
there's nothing in it." "Well," said
the stranger. "I'll give you 2 for it."
"Well, done." The 2 was paid, and the
contents of that box were sold to the
czar of Hussia for $50,000. In it the
lathing machine of Peter the Great,
his private letters and documents of
value beyond all monetary consid
eration. And here are the events
that seem very insignificant and un
important, but they incase treasures
of Divine Providence and eternities
of meaning which after awhile God
will demonstrate before the ages as
being of stupendous value.
When Titans play quoits, they pitch
mountains, but who owns these gigan
tic natural forces we are constantly
reading about? Whose hand is on the
throttle valveof the volcanoes? Whose
foot, suddenly planted on the foot
stool, makes the continents quiver?
God! I must be at peace with Him.
Through the Lord Jesus Christ, this
God is mine and He is yours. I put the
earthquake that shook Palestine at
the crucifixion against all the down
rockings of the centuries. This God

centuries of time and all the cycles of
Those of you who are in midlife may
well thank "God that you have seen so
many wondrous things, but there are
people alive to-day who may live to

we cover up our ignorance, will yel
be an explored realm. Electricity, the
fierce courser of the sky, that Ien
iamin Franklin lassoed and Morse and
Bell and Edison have brought under

We see them from Heaven if we do

Years ago I was at Fire Island,
L. I., and I went up in the cupola
from which they telegraph to
New York the approach of vessels
hours before they come into port
There is an opening in the wall, and
the operator puts his telescope
through that opening and looks out
and sees vessels far out at sea. hile
1 was talking with him he went up
and looked out. He said: "We are ex-
tip-(inr the Arizona to-nisrht." I
said: "Is it possible you know all
those vessels? Do you know them as
you know a man's face?" He said:
"Yes. I never make a mistake. Be
fore I see the hulls I often know them
by the masts. I know them all I have
watched them so long." Oh, what a
o-rand tiring it is to have ships tele
graphed and heralded long before
thev come to port, that friends may-
come down to the wharf and welcome
their long-absent ones! So to-day we
take our stand in the watch-tower,
and through the .glass of inspiration
we look off and, gee a whole

Millions of Dottles
of Syrup of Figs and the universal satisfaction
which it has given attest the fact that it possesses
the qualities which commend it to public favor.
With the diffusion of knowledge of what a laxative
should be and a general understanding of the fact
that it should have a truly laxative and beneficial
effect and be wholly free from every objectionable
quality, or substance, the large and growing de
Syrup of Figs
shows that it is destined to supplant the old-time
cathartiqs which were generally injurious and
usually disagreeable as well. In Syrup of Figs one
finds a true laxative, simple and pleasant to the
taste, gentle in its action and beneficial in effect.
In the process of manufacture figs are used as
they are pleasant to the taste, but the medicinal
virtues of Syrup of Figs are obtained from an
excellent combination of plants known to be
medicinally laxative and to act most beneficially.
