burden of the coiupHint of some.
It should not be so with the christian;
every day should be better in his exper
ience thsn the preceding, and his eve
should ev.-r be fixed on the hisher use
fulness he may attain and the bright goal
at which his race will end, as Carlysle
says, "the goal of yesterday should be
thestartirg point of today," and every
new start should be taken from higher
ground. The figuris under which i'aul
refers to t ie christian life indicate that
bis idea of it was not one that could be
realized by ease, inactivity or indolent re
trospectio l or anticipation. Working,
warring, running and striving were fig
ures in gn at favor with him when setting
forth the ohristian's path of faith, duty,
service, s iffering and privilege. From
the Grecian games, which were known to
the Hebrews after the Macedonian in
vasion. he selects st-veral of bis most ex
pressive fl jures, and in the text under the
tiiure of a race be gives us a eotuprehen
sive stiitei lent of the christian's attitude
toward the past, his conduct in the pres
ent and hi reward in the future, and
while the reward is magnified, and it is
evidently r.volved that we are really liv
ing for the future, we arw as clearly
tauyht that we should rightly understand
our relations to the past and especially to
iirst 1 he christi in's attitude toward
'he past should be that of entire willful
forgctfulni-ss of everything that will not
aid or that will in anyway hinder his
higher attainment and advancement to
the goal. 1 lie should forget his past
trials! and 'roubles. These come to every
one in the form of sorrows, discourage
ments, difficulties, opposition, doubts and
fears. The lessons of caution and faith
and herois'ii should be remembered, but
brooding in a discouraged mood over
them shou'd never be indulged. Second
He should forget bis failures. These
come to al, men in every department of
ife, and the christian should imitate the
energetic I usines man who contracts for
a new plre of business while the ruins of
theold are still smoking, "lthas been tried
and failed," should never be given as a
reason for not attempting again to do
what ought to be done. Third He

ly urced by the old writers, but it should
never be iiduhred in when its effect is
that of depression or discouragement.and
should be remembered that too often
looking ba-ik ends in going back. Some
one bus wt II said, that the christian's at
titude should be looking outward not in-

hut continuous urgent action forward
oblivious to all allurements. Daydream
ing concerning heaven may te the de-
ighlful exercise during his devotional
hours, but as Carlysle says, "our grand
business ir this world is not to see what
lies dimly in the future, hut to do what
lies clearly at hand." He should
"Think that lay lxt whine low descending sun
Views fro u 1 ie hand no noble action done.''
Peering into the future by the aid of the
Divine Revelation is a proner and delight
fill exTciie. but that Revelation also
brings to ai the same command as Tenny
son's psalm of life:
'Tout no future, howe'er pleasant,
Let t ie deal pant bury its dead ;
Act, act In tha living present
Heart within and lind o'eruead.
The chu'eh is now in a working, not a
waiting dispensation. But as the an
cient racer must be mindful of the rules
of the game, so the cbristion is to press
forward in Jesus Christ. Christ is not
only "the door" by which nil must enter
upon the christian course, but he is also
the way in which the christian must
always rue in all his course:
'Tl .Tens when the burdened heart
Is Hink 112 neath its load;
And .lefii" when the the trembling ftepa
Can ha dly keep the road.
And Jem ih when the nun of ioy

Or guit.e the eteps aright
Ti Jesus In the ciorninir honn,
And J.-eua through the day;
And .leiis at life's eventide,
And li sua all the way."
"Let us," says the apostle, "lay aside
every weight and tne sin that does so
easily beset ua and runs with pa
tience the race that is Bet before us,
looking unto Jesus, the author and fin
isher of oor faith."
Third. The christian's reward in the
future is the attainment of the goal and
the prize." The goal rather than the
prize should be the object of desire since
having att lined the goal of perfection of
christian character, and as Paul says,
"being found in Him not having mine
own right ousness" and being "partaker
of the heaenly calling" the prize is sure.
The Christ an's prize, the higher experi

whatever his experiences, should pursue
bis course confidently, singing:

He to the goal will take me."
Mr. Leland, in closing, addressed the
church, urging affectionately to greater
activity, and forward and upward move
ments in all their plans and work. Ref
erence was made to the very pleasant and
successful pastorate just closing.in which
seventy-seven persons had been added to
the church during two years fiftyseven
of them by experience and baptism; of
these all but seven, who have removed
from the city, are now in active
connection with the church. During this
pastorate a beautiful mi-sion chapel has
been built, and a steady improvement in
activity and efficiency in christian work
has been observable, while harmony has
prevailed in all the relations of pastor and
people, and the church is in an excellent
financial condition, and its spiritual con
dition may be rightly inferred from the
full attendance at the devotional meet
ings and excellent Sabbath congrega
tions, and the baptism of three more can
didates which occurred last even
ing as the closing act of the pastor's con
nection with thechuizb.
Mr. Leland resigned his pastorate here
for the purpose of completing a post
graduate course of study at Morgan
Park, and expected to remove his family
there, but has accepted a very enthus
iastic call to the church at Mendota,
which is located so near the city as to al
low him to carry out bis plans without
being much from home as he would have
to be if supplying different churches
from Sabbath to Sabbath.
Mr. Leland goes from here to Chicago
on Tuesday to attend the commencement
of theBiptist Theological Seminary. On
next Sunday he will preach his first sers
mon rs pastor at Mendota, III. His fam
ily will r.nain in Rock Island for about
ten days, when he will return and re
move his Home to Mendota, where he will
remain during his course of study.

coming in, a few other articles to give variety to your
table service. As to prices if you are disappointed at
all it will be to find them so low.
It would take more space than is at my disposal here
to speak at all fully of the new things coming in, to say
nothing of staple articles. I hope it is understood by
this time that visitors are always welcome whether they
come to buy or not, and to look at what the store con
tains is better than to read about them. Please call.
