What is tho meaning of that ques
tion that Qod put to Job? Have we
all our lives been reading it und uro
moat of us ignorant of ita beauty
und power and practical suggestive
ness? A meaningless passage- of
"Sorlpturo many thought it to bo. Dut
tho tolescopcs worn busy ago otter
ago and astronomical observations
kopi on questioning tho skien until
the meaning of my text conies out
lustrously. The Piolados ls a con
etollation of aeren stars appearing to
tho naked eye, but sc len tillo instru
ments reveal more than 400 properly
belonging to tho group; Alcyone is
tho mn.no of tho brightest slur of that
group called tho Pleiades. A Russian
astronomer obsorved that Alcyone is
the center of gravitation of our solar
system. Hugh Macmillan says that
tho sun and its planets wheel around
that center at tho rato of 422,000 miles
a day in an orbit which it will take
10,000,000 years to complete. Tho Pl?i
ade* appear in tho springtime and aro
associated with flowers and genial
warmth and good weather. Tho navi
gation of thc Mediterranean was from
May to November-thc rising and tho
netting of tho Pleiades. Tho priests
of Bulus noticed that rising and set
ting 2,000 years beforo Christ.
Now, the glorious meaning of my
text ls plain as well as radiant. To
givo Job the beautiful graco of hu
mility God asked him: "Canst thou
biad tho sweet influences of the
Plelados?" Havo you any power ovor
tho laws of gravitation ? Can you
modify or chango an influence wield
ed by a ?tar moro than 400,000 milos
away? Can you control tho winds of
tho springtime? Can you call out tho
flowers? How llfctlo you know oom

you can do compared with Omnipo
The probability is that Job had
been tempted to nrroganeo by Iiis Tast
attainments. He was a motallurgist,
a Boologist, a poet, and shows by his
writings ho had knowledge of hunt
ing, of muaio, of husbandry, of medi
cine, of mining, of astronomy, and
perhaps was so far ahead of thc
scholars and scientists of his time
that ho may havo been somewhat
puffed up; henco this interrogation of
my toxt. And thero ?3 nothing that
BO soon takes down human pride ns
an interrogation point rightly thrust.
Christ used it mightily. Paul mounted
tho parapet of his great arguments
with auch a battery. Men of tho
world understand it. Demosthenes
bogan his epecoh on tho orown and
Cluer? his oration against Catilius
and Lord Chatham I?? most fumons
orations with a question. The empire
of ignorance ls KO much vastor than
the empiro of lcnowlodgo that aflor
the most learned and olaborato dis
quisition upon any subject of sociol
ogy or theology tho plainest mun may
nek a question that will make tho
wisest speechless. After tho pro
foundest nunan] t upon Christianity
the humblest disciplo may mah a an
Inquiry that would silonoo a Voltaire.
Called upon, ns wo all aro at times,
to dofond our holy religion, instead
of argument that can always be an
swered by argument let us try the
power of interrogation. Wo ought to
be loaded with at least half a dozou
questions and always ready, and when
Christianity is assailed and wo aro
told thorn is nothing in lt, ?nd there
Is no God, and thora ?over was a.
miracle, and that the Suripturus ure
Unreasonable and cruel, and that
there novor will bo a judgment day,
take out of your portable armory of
Interrogation something like this:
What makes thV condition of women
in Christian lands better than in
heathen lands? Do you think lt would
be kind in God to turn tho' human
raco into a world without any writ
ten revelation to explain and encour
age and elevate and save? And if a
revelation was made, wbioh do you
prefer, the Zendu-Vesta of tho Por
sian or the Confucian writings of tho
Chin??e or the Koran of Mohammed
or our Bible? If Christ is not a Di
vine being, what did Ho mean when
He said: "Before Abrain was T am?'
?f the Bible is a bad book, whore aro
the evil results of loading it? Did
you soe any degrading influonoe of
the book in your father or mother
ior slater, who used to read it? Do
you not think that a judgment day
is neeosaary in order to explain and
fl?: up things that wero never ex
plained or Axed up? If our religion is
illogiou.1 and an imposition upon hu
man credulity, why were H?rschel and
Washington and Glndstono and Wil
liam McKinley its advocates? How
did it happen that our religion fur
nished tho theme for tho greatest
poem ovor written, "Paradoo Dost,"
and to tho painters their greatest
themes in tho "Adoration of tho
Magi," "Tho Transfiguration,.i'ho
Last Supper," "The Cruel /ixion, "Tho
Entombment," "Tho Lust Judgment,"
and that all the schools of painting
put forth their utmost genius in pre
senting "The Madonna?"
Why wa? it that William Shakes

on God's omnipotence and man's lim
itations would not havo had suoh an
effect upon Job as tho interrogation
of tho text: "Canst thou bind tho
sweet inlluenco of the Pleiades?"
Those words also rocqgni/.o far
reaching influences. Job probably
bad no adoquato idea of tho distance
of thc worlds montioned from our
world, but ho know them to bo far
off, and we, who havo tho advantage
of modern sidereal investigation,
ought to bo Btill moro improssod
than was Job with tho question ol
tho text, as it puts before us tho fact
that worlds hundred? of thousands
of milos distant havo a grip on our
world. There aro Kweot influonoos
whick hold us from afar. There may
havo been in our ancestral lino per
haps "00 years ago some consecrated
man or woman who has hold over
all the generations since au Influenoo
for good which wc havo no power to
realize, and wc lu tura, by our
vlrtuo or vice, may influence thoso
who shall llvo 200 years from now.
Moral gravitation is us powerful ns
material gravitation, aud if, as my
text teaohos nud scienco confirms,
the Pleiades, which are millions of
miles from our earth, iniluonoo tho
earth we ought to bo impressed with
bow wo may bc Influenced by o tho ni
far away baok and how wo may tu
iiucnec others far down tho futuro.
That rill away up among tho Allo
ghanlcs, so thin you think it will
hardly find ita way down the roeks,
becomes tho mighty Ohtfo rolling Into
thc Mississippi and rolling into tho
?ea. That word you uttor, that deed
you do, may augment itself as tho
years go by until rivers coaso to roll
nnd tho oceau itsolf shall bo dried
up in tho burning of tho world.
Paul, who was all tho limo saying
important things, said nothing moro
startlingly Kuggestivo than when he
deolarcd: "None of us broth er
dloth to himself." Words, thoughts,
notions, haya on oternity of flight.
As Job could not bind tho Bwoet in
fluences of the Seven Stars, an thoy
wero called, BO we caunot arrant or
turn asido tho good projected long
ago. Those influences wero startod
centuries before our cradle was
rocked and will 1 *Mgn centuries after
our graves are dug. Oh, it is a tre
mendous thing lo livel God help us
to live aright.
Astronomers can easily locate the
Plniados. .Thoy will take you into
their observatories on "a olear night
nnd aim their revealing instrument
toward tho part In tho hoavofns whoro
thoso wovou Mars have their habi
tude, and' they will point to tho con
stellation Taurus, and you oan soo
for yourself. But it ls impossible
to point to influences far back that
have afYootad our chnraotor and will
affect our destiny. Wo know tho In
iluonoes near by-paternal, maternal,
ooujugol-but by tho timo wo havo
gone back two generations or at
most three our investigations falter
and fail. Through tho modoru in
teresting habit of searching back to
find thc ancestral troc wo may find
a long- list of names, but they arc
only names. The consecration or
abandonment of some ono 200 yoars
ago was not recorded. It would not
be so important if you nnd I by our
good or bad behavior blessed or
blasted only thoso immodiatoly
around us, but our goodness or our
badnosa will reach as far as the
strongest rays of Aleyono - yo?,
across the oternttles. Under this
consideration what do you think of
thoso who glvo themsolvcs up to
frivolity or idleness and throw away
50 years of their e xi st enc? as though
they wero shells or pebbles or pods
instead of embr3'o eternities?
Notice also in my toxt tho influ
ence of other worlds upon this world.
We all regard the effect which our
continent lins upon other continents
or ono homisphero upon the other
hemisphere. Great harvest or drought
affects tho other side of our world.
A panie In Wall street, New York, has
its echo in Lombard < streot and tho
bourse. Tho nations of tho eartk
ooblcgrarouied togother all fool the
same thrill of dollght or BIIOOIC of woo.
Hut wo do not appr?oiato tho Influ
ence of othor worlds upon our world.
Tito author of my text rouses us to
the consideration. It takes all tho
worlds of known and unknown as
tronomy to keep our world in its or
bit, every world dependent on other
worlds. Thc stellar existence ls foll
nil through tho heavens. Every con
stellation is n sisterhood, Our plannt
feels tho benediction of Aloyono and
nil tho other stars of tho Ploiados.
Yea, there ore two othor worlds that
decida the fato of our world, its re
demption or its demolition. Those
two worlds aro tho headquarters o?
angelology and demonology. From
the ono world carno Christ, oomo mi'm
latoring spirits, como all graolous in
fluences. From thc other world rico
all satanic aud diabolio iiillucnoofl.
From that world of moral right rose

of the consecrated people lu our
world will be craituplod by tho holp
from the heavenly world, nud tho Di
vino power will overcome tho do
moniao. O man, O woman, expand
your idea nud know tho mngnitudo
of a contest in which three worlds aro
specially Interested. From all tho
aoven worlds which my text calls tho
Pleiades thcro oomo no such powerful
influe noes as from tho two worlds
that I nm now mentioning'. My only
hope for this world ls in the reen
forcement that is to como from an
other world. But that is promised,

My text onllod Job and oalls u? to
consider "tho sweet Influences." Wo
put too muoh emphasis upon tho acid
ities of lifo, upon tho irritations of
lifo, upon tho disappointments of
lifo. Ammianus M a rc el li ii us said that
Chaldea was in olden times overrun
with lions, but many of them lost,
their power bceauso tho great swamps
produced ninny gnats that would get
into tho eyes of tho Hons, und tba
lions to fruo thcuisulvcs of tho gnats
would olaw their own cyos out und

Not su/lleiently do we rcoognizo tho
