Daughter .- Hermon from the
Toxt, ?Hor Way? Ato Way?
?Copyrlght, 1901, by Louis Klopseh, N.T.]
Washington, April 14,
In this discourse Br. Talrauge sots
forth religion ns un exhilaration, and
urges all pooplo to try its uplifting
power; text, Proverb*' 8, 17: "lier
ways aro ways of pleasantness."
You have all heard of Clod's only
bogott?n Son. Havo you heard of
God's daughter? She was boru in
Heaven? She came down over tho
hills of our world. Sho had queenly
step. On her brow was celestial
radiance. Her volco was music. Uer
?amo ls Religion. My toxt intro
duces her. "lier ways are Ways of
pleasantness, ?nd all hor paths are
peace." But what is religion? Tho
fact ls that theological study has had
a different effnot upon mo from tho
effect sometimes produced. Every'|
year I tear out another leaf from
my theology, until I have only three
or four leaves left-in other words,
a very brief and plain statement of
An aged Christian minister said:
"When I was a young man, I knew
everything. When I got to bo 85
years of age, In my creed I had only a
hundred doctrines of religion. When
I got to be CO years of ago, I had
only 60 doctrines of religion. When
I got to be CO years of ago I ,had
only ten dootrlnes of religion, and
now I nm dying at 75 years of ngo,
and there is only ono tiling I know,
and that ls that Christ Jesus carno
Into tho world to savo sinners." And
BO I have noticed in tho study of God'n
word and In my contemplation of tho
character of God and of tho eternal
world that lt 4s necessary for mo to
drop this part of my belief and that
part of my belief as being nonessen
tial, while I cling to tho ono great doc
trine that man ls a sinner and Christ
is his Almighty and Divino Saviour.
Now I tako these three or four
leaves of my theology, and I find that
in the first placo and dominant above
all others is tho sunshine of religion.
When I go into a room, I havo a pas
sion for throwing" open all tho shut
ters. That is what I want to do this
morning. We aro apt to throw BO
muoh of tho sepulchral into our re
ligion and to close tho shutters and
to pull down tho blinds that it is only
through hero and tboro a crovico that
tho light ntreauiB. The religion of
the Lord Jesus Christ is a religion of
joy indescribable and unutterable.
Wherever I can find a bell I mean to
If there are any In this house this
morning who aro disposed to hold on
to their melancholy and gloom, let
them depart this servlco boforo tho
fairest and the brightest and tho most
radiant being of all the universe comes
In. God's Son has left our world, but
God's daughter is hore. Give her room.
Hail, princess of Heaven l Hail, daugh
ter of tho Lord Almighty! Como In
and mako this house thy throneroom.
In setting forth this idea tho domi
nant thoory of religion is ono of sun
shine. I hardly know where to begin,
for there aro so many thoughts that
rush upon my soul. A mother saw her
little child seated on tho floor in tho
sunshine and with a spoon in her hand.
She said: "My darling, what aro you
doing there?" "Oh," replied thc child,
'I am getting a spoonful of this sun
shine." Would God that to-day I
might pr?sent you with a gleaming
chalico of this glorious, everlasting
IHrst of nil, I find a great deal of
sunshine in Christian society. I do
not know of anything moro doleful
than tho companionship of tho mero
funmakers of tho world-tho Thomas
Hoods, tho Charles Lambs, t?
Charles Ma the waes of tho world-tho
men whose cntiro bxisiness it is to
make sport. They make others laugh,
but if you will examine their auto
biography or biography you will find
that down in their soul thoro was o
texTi?lo disquietude. Laughter is no
sign of happiness. Tho mantao'
laughs. The hyena laughs. Thc loon
among the Adirondacks laughs. Tho
drunkard, dashing his docanter
against tho wall, laughs.
There is a terrible renotion from all
sinful amusomcut and sinful merri
mefnt. Such men aro cross the next
day. They snap at you on exchange
or they pass you, not recognizing you.
Long ago I qtiit mero worldly Boclety
foT the reason it was so dull, so inano
and so stupid. My nature is voracious
of joy. I must have it. *
I always walk on the sunny side of
the street, nndifor that reason I havo
crossed over Into Christian society. I
like their modo of repartee better. I
like their stylo of amusement better.
They livo longer. Christian people, l
sometimes notice, live on when by all
natural law they ought to have died.
I have known persons who have con
tinued in their existonco when tho
docto: said they ought to have been
dead ten years. Every day of their
existence wns n defiance of the laws
of anatomy and physiology, but they
had this supernatural vivacity of tho
Gospel in their soul, and that kept
Tut 10 or V? Christian people in a
room for Christian conversation, and
you will from eight to ten o'clock
hear moro resounding glee, see moro
bright strokes of wit nnd find moro
thought nyul profound satisfaction
than in rt/iy merely worldly party.
Now, whem I sny a "worldly party" I
mean thatj to which you arc invited
becauso Under all tho circumstances
of the casie it is the best for yo\i to
be invited, and to which you go be
in whioh, by tho light of reason and

I know thero ls a great deal of talk
about tho self-denials of tho Chris
tian. I have to tell you that whore
tho Christian has one self-denial the
man of tho world has a thousand
self-denials. The Christian is not
commanded to surrendor anything
that is worth keeping. But what
dfes a man deny himself who de
nies himself the religion of Christ?
Ho denies himself pardon for sin,
ho denies himself peace of oonsaienoe,
ho denies himself the joy of tho Holy
Ghost, he denlos himself a . comfort
able doath pillow, ho denies himself
tho glory of Heaven. Do not talle
to mo about tho self-denial of tho
Christian life. Where thero is. one
in tho Christian lifo thero is a thou
sand in tho life of tho world. "Hor
wnys^oro ways of pleasantness."
Again, I And a great deal of re
ligious sunshiuo in Christian and di
vine oxplanation. To a great many
peoplo lifo is an inexplicable tangle.
Things turn out differently from
what was supposed. Thero 'ia a use
less woman in perfect health. Thero
is an Industrious and consecrated
woman a complete invalid. Explain
that. Thero is a bad man with $30,
000 of income. Thero ls a good man
with $800 of Income. Why is that?.
There is a foo of society who lives on,
doing all tho damage he can, to 75
years of age, and hero is a Christian
father, faithful in every department
of lifo, at 35 years of ago taken away
by death, his family left helpless.
Explain that. Oh, there i? no n<m
tenco that oftener drops from your
lips than this: "I cannot understand
lt. I cannot understand it."
Well, now religion comes in just at
that point with its illumination and
its explanation. Thero is a business
mari who has lost his entiro fortune.
Tho week before he lost his fortune
thero wero 20 carriages that stopped
nt tho door of his mansion. Tho
week after ho lost hia fortuno all
tho carriages you eould count on ono
finger. Tho weok before flnanoial
troublo began people all took off
their hats to him os ho passed down
the street. Tho week his financial
prospects wero under discussion peo
ple just touched their hats without
nnywiso bending tho rin?1. The week
that ho was pronounced insolvent
peoplo just jolted their heads as
they passed, not tipping their hats
at all, and tho week tho sheriff sold
him out nil his friends were looking
in tho store windows as they went
down past him.
' Now, while tho world goes away1
from a man whilo ho is in flnanoial
distress, tho religion of Christ comes
to him and says: "You aro slok, and
your sickness is to bo moral pufifl
cation; you aro bereaved. ^^A'
wanted in HOI nu way to ' toke 'yourO
family to Heaven, and He must begin
somewhere, and so Ho took tho ono,
that was most benutiful and was.
most ready to go." I do not say,
that religion explains .everything lri'i
this life, but I do say it lays down:
certain principios whioh are grandly;
consolatory. You know business mon
often telegraph in cipher. Tho mer-!
chant in San Francisco telegraphs to
tho merchant in Now York oortain
information in cipher which no other
man in that Uno of business can un
derstand, but tho merchant in San
Francisco has the key to tho cipher,
and tho merchant in Now York has
tho key to tho cipher, and on that i
information transmitted- there aro
enterprises involving hundreds of
thousands of dollars. Now, tho provi
dences of Ufo somotimes ?oem to be
a senseless rigmarole, a mysterious
cipher; but God has a key to that
cipher and tho Christian a key to
that cipher, and, though ho moy
hardly bo able to spell out tho mean
ing, he gets enough of the meaning
to understand that it is for tho best.
Now, is thero not sunshine in that?
Is thero not pleasure in that? Far
beyond laughter, it is nearer tho
fountain of tears than boisterous
demonstration. Havo you never cried
for joy? There are tears which are
otcrnal rapture in distillation.
Thero aro hundred? of peoplo who
aro walking day by day in tho sub
lime satisfaction that all is for tho
best, all things working together for
good for their soul. How a man eau
get along through this Ufo without
the explanation is to mo a mystery.
What! Is that child gone forever?
Aro you never to get it back? Ia
your property gone forever? Have
you no explanation, no Christian^.ex
planation, and yet not a naanlao?
But when you havo tho religion of
Jesus Christ in your soul it explains
everything so far as it is best for
you to understand. You look off in
life, and your soul is full of thanks
giving to God that you aro so much
better off than you might be. A man
passed down the street without any
Bhoes and said: "I havo no shoes.
Isn't it a hardship that I havo no
shoes? Other peoplo havo shoes!"
until he saw a man who had no feet.
Then he learned a lesson. You ought
to thank God for what Ho does in
stead of grumbling for what Ho doss
not. God arranges all the weather
in this world-the spiritual woathtr?
and patriotio I dovontly pray that
ovonts may viadioato tho wisdom of
his notion, and that poaoo, justino, freo
dom and pronporlty may horeaftcr be

Oarolina. D. H. Ohamporlain,
Govornor of South Oarolina.
l?ditoiially Tho Rogi9tor commented
as follows on tho proclamation:

Oh, the sunshine, the sunshine of
Christian explanation! Here is some
one bending over the grave of the
dead. What is going to be the consola

Sometimes you W?BII you oould mako

Besides that, we shall have all the

"T couldn't help but be well. I have

Oh, my friends, your departed loved

Dr. Brimoi Holds to His View?. Pres
Tho Charleston rresbytcry, whioh.
has bcon in eossion at Waller boro, has
been having moro troublo about tho
viows it Dr. Brimm ot Columbia on tho
lubjoctof divino hoaling. It will bo
reoallcd tbnV Dr. Brimin resignod bis
ohair at tho thoologioal sovninary bo
oau&e of hiu viows on this subjoot, and
thcro woro other proceedings in tbo
mattor by tho rrc&bytory. Tho oorros
pondent of Tho Nows and Courier at
Waitorboro thus rolates what took
plaoo at tho presbytery's session about
tho case :
"Tho most important matter whioh
pamo boforo tl o presbytery for con
sideration was tho oaso of Dr. Brimin,
who, on account of his poouliar viows
with roicrenoo to tho doottino of divino
healing, bas become unaeooptab.'o as a
ministor to tho presbytery. Dr. Drimuj
auncunood his position last year. His
viows not being iu soaord with tho
Presbyterian idoap, ho resignod tho
ohair whioh he hold in tho thoologioal
sominaryat Columbia and addressed
a letter to tho fail mooting of tho pros
hy tory BBB?ag that his namo bedroppod
from tho roll of mewbors of that body.
Tho matter was very gent rally di?oussod
at that mcotiog, as tho roadors of Tho
Nows and Courier will remember. The
result waa that Dr. Brinna's requost
was refusod and bowns ot joined from
promulgating his rcouliai viows.
"Upon assembling this week, tho
"presbytery was put in possossion of
another lottor addresfod to it by Dr.
Brimm, dated April 4, in whioh ho
again Btated his position atd informed
that body that te wculd refueo altor
April 12 to oboy tbo ir junction placed
upon him. Tho lot tens avery warm
ono,'and would tnako very interesting
reading, but the presbytery refusod to
permit this correspondent to havo a
copy for publication. ' *
"Practically two days woro oon
sumod in discussing tho cape, (finally
tho following resolution, offered by Dr.
Smith, waa adopted:
. "Resolved, That tho presbytery re
grets very sinoerely and doeply tho
view that Dr. Brimm takes ot tho no
tion of tho body at its mcoting laht
fall; that (ho presbytery regards tho
terms whioh Dr. Brimm has allowed
himself to uso in tho lotter of April 4,
1901, now boforo this body, entirely
unwarranted by anything in tbo rola
tiona between tho writor and this pres
bytery, or in tho course pursued by
thin body in thoir doali?ga with him. '
"rho presbytery dosiros to remind
Dr. Brimm that Charleston.prosbytory
is not less sinooro in its convictions of
truth than is ho himself, aud that
tboEO oonviotions aro just mt decided
and just as unalterable as aro Iii?.own.
Tho prosbytory therefore solomnly and
earnestly roitorates its provious de
liverance as to the uasoriptnral and
unconstitutional obaraotor of those
views. With this conviction of tho
obarotor of tho viows maintained and
dofonded hy Dr, Brimm, tho presby
tery, with ali kindnoso, but with equal
candor, informs Dr. Birram that itoan
not consent that a minister undor its
jurisdiction slall teach or publish thom
in any way; tho presbytery thcrofore
reposts willi emphasis tho inlunotion it
felt obliged to placo upon him at tho
fall mooting, with tho hopo and cx-pco ?
talion that Dr Brimm will iospoot tho
oonviotions and authority of this oourfc
so long as ho romains a member of it
in accordance with sootion 4 of his or
