T LAUGHTER OF THE ALMIGHTY.
Text, "H. that sitteth in the heavens
shan laugh."-Ps. 11, 4.
Not many can stand ridicule. If
you're loved you open up and ripen in
the sunshine, if you're hated you
brac up like a pine tree in the gle,
but itfqoure laughed at you'll with

Soge youngster may pin a card'on

let on 0 street on April fools 07
Hundreda passed by, but all snffed
the. airar. walked around it with a
"you can't fool m$" &ir of wIsdom.
They dreaded being laughed at. Sir
Walter SCott said ridicule was the
dread of his chidhood. It broke poor
Keats' heart. There are young men
who'd. risk ruin and downfal rather
than risk ridicule. - Boys stop going to
Sunday school, men to church; if some
worthless corner lounger sneers. Had
.ohn Alexander Dowle been beatei in
the teets of New York and a couple
of his folowers. been burned at the
sake he would have returned to Zion
City dth a thousand converts and
$1,00,O. but the newspapers laugh
ed at bm. The result is history.
The Mockery of Sin.
*Consequenes are unpitying," said
George 1liot. A fearful sentence!
oul death is the consequence of sin.
That is what the old book declares,
The wages of sin is death." Man Is
an engine built to run threescore
years 'and ten. Sin cuts down his
timr one-half Sin is a cerebro-spinal
n that baffles earthly cure.
Sin is a boomerang. Strikes when the
danger seems over. Sin is a trail of
powoer we lay from our house to the
train track where the sparks fall.
.Thenwe forget. Some day the unex
pected happens. The spark and the
tral of powder do their work. Yes,
.conMequences are unpitying. The acro
bat who stooon his head at the edge
in the Yosemite, with
a clear drop beneath him,
the boatman who tries to see- how
he dan go toward Bucklhorn island,
the Niagara river above -the falls,
fair types of the man playing with
-Some day the rocks of Yosemite
ad the Maid of the Mist will laugh at
the foolhardy. Consequences are un
jitylng. Repeat it -over and over
-again as you would your A B C or
'our- multiplication table.. "The wages
sin is death." Wages! It Isn't
throwino dice;enos luck. It's
e r oanxious
anys the .word. Yes, and sin gibes .at
fools too.
The Laughter of the Almighty.
It's an awful thing to have God
mecklng at you. God's smile Is pleas
ure. God's laughter Is derisive. He
often works through natural agencies.
Captain Philip of the Texas said the
side which fires first shot in a Sunday
battle-has always been defeated. Cer

They laugh at social laws and ostra

moral law and loathsome disease

~'~G~d I Not Mocked"
Itis so easy to laghat God's serv
ants and their warnings. Men laughed

- the old dolt, building his ungainly ark.
Many a gibe he' endured. Then the

fire and brimstone crackling In the
suiphurous atmosphere? No; God's
laughter! Is that a shriek In the pal
ace? No; the laughter of God! There's
shout of horsemen and rumble of
chariot wheels. "Kill men! Capture
women! Whet your swords!" The
chariots drag; the harses stumble; the
drivers curse; the waters are return
