Rev. J. L. Cnrroll preached yesterday
from the "Partible of the Sower," which
was the international Sunday school les
son for the day.
"I would call attention to the lessons
suggested," said the Sx'tikcr. "This par
able is thought to lie the first of many
that Jesus spoke. His design is obvious.
He intended to preach the effect of the
(osjiel on different people. The Savior
here divided those hearing into four
classes. As they were then, so arc they
now and will remain.
"The sower went out to sow," he said,
"some of the seed fell by Hie wayside, mid
the fowls of the air destroyed them. This
represents the first class of hearers. You
will understand the class meant. At
points where the path and field meet, the
soil is poor nud sterile. The sternly
trump, tramp, tramp has destroyed all
vegetation, and prevented the soil be
coming enriched by the continuous
growth and decay. The soil is not only
Kior, but hard and packed. It is just so
with the first class of hearers. Their
moral and religious nature is impover
ished by a continual round of sinful
thoughts, words nml actions. The re
ligious inllucnces have Iktii crowded out
by these thoughts. The soil of the spir
itual natures is sterile and hard. The
heart is hard, too. You can see the
effect of seed sowing on such natures.
It is on the wnvsule soil. It lies
exposed nud the fowls of the air de
vour it. These fowls lire cipial to evil
spirits who take the word out of the
"The second class is represented by the
stony ground. This ground lucks moist
ure mid litis no depth. The sower goes
nlong mid sows the seed. They fell on
the soil on top of the rock. That is the
way with this class of hearer. They
have some thought, and some religious
Ill-ling, consideration nud concern, but
not much. There is no depth. The un
derlying soil is not broken up. These arc
they who hear the word with Joy. The
rock being near the surface makes it
warmer and the seed springs up quicker
and grows faster than where the soil is
Iccht. This class is not hard to move,
but the trouble is in keeping them mov-
ng. When something does happen they
seem more moved than the rest but it soon
changes. They arc shallow and stiSfrli-
ial, nud arc tripcd up by temptations,
and the impression made soon passes
The third class is the seed on stony
ground. It seemed to Ik good ground.
It did not npHf(ir hard mid sterile. The
tup of the thorns had been destroyed,
ml the etirlh wns tilled with the roots.
When the seed begins to germinate, the
germ of the thorn ulso awakens mid he
gins to grow. They grow up, nnil the
thorn choke the good seed mil. Hy
these thorns nre meant the riches nud sin
lul plcnsiirc ol thi world. The seed are
sown in the heart, but Hie germ ami
roots of cure fur worldly goods, thoughts
und pleiisureinre on the iusiilcniiil spring
upaiiilcliokeihcgoi.il seed. These evil
germs draw to themselves the fertility
that ought to go to the good seed. You
can sec the inlliicncc id this. The indi
vidual Iwgius to grow worldly minded
and nil good is crowded out.
"The good ground represents the fourth
lass. There urc several H.viilinrities of
this class. They are entirely opposed to
the other three. The evil of the heart
has Is-en put in good condition, and the
seed of the Ciosh.I sink in deep. They
work on the soul nml bring forth fruit.
Impressions urc made on men nml
are not shaken off immediately, but on
I he contrary mi effort is made to have
l hem sink dcccr.
Now we liaveinilicaiedthefoiirclasscs
ami the ipicstion arises, which class do
we iK-long to? Arc yon as wnysulc
hearers, easily moved and Impressed,
but letting the result tlisapietir nt once?
Arc you as thorny ground henrcrs, let
ting the cures mid anxieties of this world
root out the desire for heller things?
Or are you us good ground hearer, let
ting the Word lull m n good nnil honest
