BllOOKr.YN, N. Y. ? The Rev. W. S.
Raincford, D. T)., rector .sof St. <?eorge'B P.
TO. Church, ^Manhattan, preached at St,
Peter's Church, State anil Homl etrceta,
in this borough, at the evening scrvicc Sunday.
ilia subject was "Tiie Love of God,"
and lie said:
People are flaying to day that the church
does not occupy aa important * place in
the thoughts of men?that it has not as inilucntial
a place in our nation or in society
as it used to have, i ?pcak, of course, of
the \vlio!e Christian church, and one thing
is sure and that is that the church cannot
hold her own by Jsimpl.v asserting, however
loudly or persistently, the ({rcatncss of her
deeds in Che past. Whatever success or
Hhoricotnings there mav have been in anuient
times, one tiling is certain, and that
is that we live in an aue when men almo.st
violently are Reeking the truth: when the
keenest sort of light is turned in oil directions
in search o? the truth. When thoso
who have got anything to do can do it;
when those who have got anything to say
worth saying can say it, and when those
who have got anything to he can be it, hut
there is no mercy for the sham. When, in
the future, they come to criticisc our time ;
it will evident)# he criticised as an age of j
truth, and it? spirit will be spoken of as
the spirit, of truth; it will be criticised
-from all other agOH as a time when men
rrronh rt/tiMlinnu < lio It nth nnil
when great gi<?ry was gained in discovering
and obeying the truth. There is no
argument anions thinkers whatsoever about
From this it JoIIowb that if we Christiana
have not get something real to give
to the world, to soeiely, to the United
States, at# this time we are really going to
lose our hold and position; nnd>*he -cpiestion
th.it we Want to auk ourselves, individually
and collectively, is this. What
have 1 got to ^ive to the world? What is
it the church has got to give to the world?
f am inclined to think, if I were allowed
to see you, one by one, nnd ask you to put
dowi: what it is on paper: What you as an
individu d and as a Christian have got to
l?ivi? /* I l)i? wnr!<l 'tiu{ flio olinrnK nu a
community? there might lie a great deal of ;
uncertainty. Tnat this question is one tliafc !
deserves i\ vory clear answer there is no I
<Iqubt, and everybody ought to know what
that answer isliould he. riiero is no manner
of doubt what the church has got to
give to the world; what the individual
Christian hes got to give to tiie worid. I
want to talk about that to-night.
Wo, the Christian Church, arc placed in
trust by Cod with the gospel. That is
what we have got to give to the world. If
'we art: Christians we believe the world
oannot get on without that gosncl. Wo
*nsc the word goapol in a very slipshod way
If we are Christians we believe that not
-only can not the world do without the gospel,
but that business and politics and the
'United States democracy in this Western
Hemisphere cannot do without the gospel.
A great many people believe that, but
when we ask them to put it into practice,
not only by going to church, not by putting
/t trifle in the plate, not by repeating a
creed or two, but to go bac?c to their work
and fs-t; if they cannot take the gospel
^ with them there. Tlicy'say, "Itusiriess is
iaAk one thing, and religion is another." Mm
that talk that wav have Kot to strn nsi.lr:
they ore no liclp cither to (he church or the
world. They are misleading; tlicy am tho
people tint tend to make the whole 11.mii};
a pham, hceausc '.lie world won't tolerate,
and right y ?nr n religion thut can confine
itself to certain times and seasons and that
can satisfy itself by obedience to certain
consciences on Suud iv, and perhaps once
a week thrown in. We hive not a defm-.i.e
charge lor the wovld, and that is thi.- gospel
of testis Christ.
That bi nif; so, lot me lor I you !o another
question, and as 1 pu! iv 1 shall -I; to
answer it: What i* the goapei oi .lesti*

again to preach.
Th.it verse si ys three tilings. First,
? "God loved tlie world." You ?nv: "1 knowit."
No, vosi don't know it. It is a trc
Incndons thing to know. Yon 6ay: "I believe
it." I hope so, hut it is a very hard
thing lo believe. "(Jod loved the wor d.'
That does not mean, (Sod love* me; (I > : 1
laves the United States (we Americans i
na if that was what we profoundly belie
veil). "God loved the world" dues not
mean the elect, "??<! and inv wife, mv pon
John and Iiis wife; wo four, no m.?rc,
iiinen." Not the people; we like, but tho
heathen Chinee. It does not mean .vj^et y
that f!od made this wor.d- thnt i? wonder
ful?hui tli<* gospel says the world is not
simply a 'aw world, but it is a love wor'd.
If any man pays it is easy to believe, ho
doea not know much about it. 1( you 'oge
one" whom you love better than yourself
it is not easy to believe it is a love
world. When some bitter trouble comes,
when paiti racks your body, when the one
tiling you lived for is taken away, in the
hour of trouble ami toil and pain it is not
easy to get up and say: "f will be a man
cftcr the heart of Jesu? Christ, for I believe
that CJod loves the world; it is a love
world."
I do not believe there i.? one mother or
father that has hail experience, who does
not know it is not easy to believe at times
that (!od loves the world. Hut it is the
gos'n-1, thi? vireat no.snel of .lesus Christ.
The second thing is (his: "Cod so loved
the world that He gave"--what is the message
of e.sus Christ aiiouf. <!? I civitijt? It
siinnly means that Ood d<< ? not KiiperinI.,,.,

Cod is: where love i?. (lod is. "(lod so
k.ved ;he world that lie gave." Nothing
costs like giving. A mother gives her babe
life, but it easts her much. We cive our
children the best we have. We cive them
our piin, th<> result of hours of toil; we
vivo and ar..- giad to give because we love
then*. 1 sny: "What will you >?ivc for your
son?" Sou say: "I am not talking al;out.

her daughter. There is not a decent tnan

In some parts of the islands. It Is
said that tho leaves oonstantly distill
a quantity of water that is suflieient
to furnish drink to every living
creature in Micro, nature having provided
this remedy for the drought of
the inland. Every morning near this
part of tho island a cloud of mist
arises from the sea, which tho winds
force against the :-tecp cliiT on which
this tree grow;, and it is from uio
| mist that tho tree distills the water.
China, too, claims her remarkable
j tree. This is known as the tallow

j producing a substance like tallow,
and which serves the same purpose,

Rats as Poison Inimunes.
In destroying rats by poison a paradoxical
susceptibility has been noted.
When you want to kill a man by poitfon
you give him a big dose, while
if you Rive him a small quantity
dally the whole may be eliminated
without fatal effects. On the other
hand it has been determined that rats
have a peculiar resistance to arsenical
poisoning wlrn given in largo
doses, while frequently they were destroyed
by small deses before the total
quantity had readied it) amount
equal to single dosea that w?ro successfully
withstood.
Net tile Same Bird.
Seeking for argument to support
on attack cn woman, a correspondent
of a contemporary found what
lie thought was a suitabls one in the
Book of Job, and produced it In triumph.
Next day another correspondent
pointed out that, owing to a flight
technical error, the argument was not
so convincing as It might otherwise
have been. It seems that the proiiivet's
remark was not nhmit urnmnn
at all, but abcnit ostriches. Those
mistakes will occur.
