' iiiin Lamp-, Table ;ottery,
1j de:osd avenue.
The Tenth Ccmmaodrteat was pre.
seated last evening at ths First M .E.chnrcb
to a congregation that nore than filled the
auditorium of the churth. The text was
from Exodus 20:17:
"Thou t halt not covet." e c.
The Epeater bigan ty ttaticg that he
had been impressed, in making a stuij
of this commandment, with its far reach
ing import. Ia a general setss, ccvot
outness means an undue thirst for hons
ors, pleasures, wealth or other ohjec's.
In a more restricted sunse, it is the de
sire of increasing one's substance by im
propriating that cf Uhcra. Covetous
uefs is a disorder of the heart and c'.osely
allied to s elfi.-bcegs. Undirits ii fljcncc,
the heart instthd of aspiring to noble,
hijili ard divine goods, is brought to the
a!mcst exclusive contemplation of earthly,
ruattriil thirg3 and thus becomes more
und more estranged from God. Since
where the treasure is, there will the
heart be also, the heatt of the covetous
cannot be with Ood.but is with Mammon.
He is not a servant of God, but of idols,
Ttc apcstle uses cove ousccss and idol
atry as 6Tnonomous terms: "Covetoua
ness, which is idolatry." Tho covetous
shall no! inherit the kingdom of God,
says the inspired wriur.
It is not forbidden by this command
ment to etrive for excellence and attain
mt nts. It is not wroi.g to desire heahh,
honor, wealth, irfluct ce, succei-s, pros
perity. Life would I e a deud sea with
out such detire. Vie are even com
manded in the word .0 "Covet earnestly
tLe best Rifts " This dc s re after excellence
is at the root of all advancement of all
progress. But there is a kind of desire
which is wrong, just a9 there is a love
which is guilty, tnd a zeal that is not
commendable. A desire which leads us
to be willing; to take possession of anoth
ei's gooJs wiiiinut paying the price end
m-iking ample returr, for value rece.vcd
i i a violation of this commit drnent.
This coveting is wrc ngjor desire ht.s for
its purpose to lead to action, and takes
its character frora the kin.i of action
bich it tends to proiuce; but this form
of desire tern's only to produce wrong
tifion. Covelins what belongs to in-o-her,
when it results in action, ir
(iufcs theft, n urdcr, and othtr sin9. If

'What is nii.ni? Not Ihdt all nv.'n are of
cqunl erdoi raent ar. 1 cupiciiies, but that
they Lsvt equal rij.h'8 in life, libeity and
the pursuit of happi less." If the wchhh
of this wo?ld were a'l d.s ribtitcd iqually
us socialists (It tire in a brief period the
same condition of things would exist,
which we now olserve. Some wi'.h
strorg constitutions can stand almof t any
til.i:st-, c'.btrs are naiiirally weak and
liable to (license and pains S;ima are
full of aniinil spirits . !t is no trouble

are nulincholy by i.a'.urc. It is eaayjto
lock on o;h r more favored than our
selves ai;d Le 11 led with envy. This ten
dercy i heightened by the urjustdiS'
crioiicaiii n of stx'eMy by which some
who t,re utterly v.orthless arc exalted to
pos-rim ai.d othir; more worthy are
crowded out tr.d kept down. Some men

for siudv or recreation. O.hers hhvo all
k-is-iire. ar.il CO fi ishirtg and disbirg

Besides all thi-we re apt to underyalae
our own blcs'dcgB md overestimate the
blefsinps of others. Ilorce rep
resents tie merchant as envious of the
soldier and the mai ncd soldier us envious
r.t the merchant; the lawyer sa envying
the farmer end tie farmer tte lawyer;
and to on through the d:flerent walks of
bfe It is a true picture. A little con-i"-draion
will s ?rve to shew the folly of
such a course.
There is an advaatsge in these veiy
differences. They are Deeoful to stimus
late industry and tie spirit of improve-
mi nt. Every man should "take himseit
for better or worse" and make the man
Mit of himself he ci.n. Try to find your
niche in the world iLd fill it. The folly
and sinfulness cf envy are apparent from
1 It ii a useless passion. It d les not
tend to r'ght actiot. When it does act it
ia a bar to succtS9. '"Envy slayeth the
silly one." It onfija man for earnest
effort. It. puts a n an to brooding over
morbid and selfish thoughts.
2. It is the foe c-r personal enjoyment.
It adds to the pains of deprivation an in
describable misery because of the happi
ness of another. We ought rawer to re
joice at the success of another and trust
lo the Ureal Judge to rectiry an wrongs.
The success of otters should never dis
courage, for it shojld recall to us -wnai
has been done can be done." Th? distinc
tions of mine and thine should not inter
fere with er jnyment. We all enjoy pub
lic patka and impioyements. Why not
likewise enjoy our neighbors' well-kept
lawns and line grounds and stately dwell
ing? We should be grateful to him tor
keeping those beautiful things for our en
jiyment. lie has to work hard to do it.
We could not atte id to all these thinre
were they ours, aid he must soon die
and leave them to others.
3 This sin perverts the judgment. Ah
envious man can't be trusted to fairly es
timate the abilitiei or achievements of
others. A crest man Is never estimated
correctly by bia cvn generation. Some
t;mes it takes sev :ral generations to set
a correct estimate on hi-j. Ilacket cal-
le I Milton "a petty schoolboy ecribbler."
Johnson a. id cf Graj 'a elegy, ' tit, he
was duil in a new way, and that made
people call him great." And Walpols
says of Dr Johnson, "He was a babbling
old woman " ; Don't be afraid of the
critics. Th4 world sies ia their utter
ances the true spirit that prompts them.
And covetouscesa perverts our judg
ment of our own condition. Haman
could etijoy prosperity so long aa there
was not a Mordecai at the king's gate.
4. It fa the root of all other sins. "Love
of money,' says tho apo9tie, is ths root
of all evil, which while some coveted
after, they have erred from the faith and
pierced ihemeelves through with many
sorrows " It is hardly possible to con
ceive a sin wbkh mty not be ;he diiect
frui-Kte of covetneis.

In cono!u.;i n. there is a peculiarity
about th s commandment. It can be en
forced hy God a'one. No human pen
alties cun touch it. It ia evident that a
man mny be outwardly a moral man and
jet be fis guilty as many a one who is
branded as an outlaw by society. God is
the judg?. These commandments are
essentially spiritual in their nature find
serve to show our need of a new heart
and of the atonement fef Christ.

greatly from ncryoua prostration and
sleeplessness, tried physicians and differ
ent medicines without success. But one
bottle of Dr. Miles' Nervine caused sound
sleep every night and she is feeling like a
