out the world. The text la Exodus j

Israel that they go forward."
Napoleon Bonaparte, in some respects
the greatest warrior of modern limes,
niue deelared, "There Homet lines CO-MI
u crisis in n hattie ur a campaign when
victory, ns I hird, will hover over the
?tandan.! of that general who has
bralni and grit enough to give the
command, 'Forward, march!'" This
was the way the French commander
defeated the two great winga of the
Austrian army at Montenotte and
('ova. Thli was the way be won his
battlM at Aureola and Marengo and
Wagram. This was the way be tried
to win Waterloo, when he commanded
Marshal Ney to lead the Old Guard
against the solid squares of the British
infantry. And thia was the way Moses,
Ute pleat law giver and soldier, led
tlie children ot israel out of Egypt,
over tho sands nnd on through the Ked
Ma, and freed thom from the onrush?
ing charge <>f the pursuing Egyptian-.
Hut the divine command given to the
children of Israel "that they go for?
ward" is applicable to the children of
God at the present time. I believe we
are nt a crisis In the world's history.
In 1S!MI my father ].reached | sermon
entitled "Last Decade of the Cen?
tury." Ry lt he tried to show how
easily the world could he brought to
Christ within ten years if every Chris?
tian would annually hiing only one
soul to Christ nnd these new converts
In turn would also individually hring
one soul to Christ every following
year. But today I want to show that
the world can be brought to Christ
even in less time than that if the Chris?
tian church will only realize Its full
opportunity and grasp lt. I want to
show this because I believe all the
great preliminary battles have been
fought nnd won which nre necessary
for this final triumph. As Concord and
Lexington and Bunker HUI and Prince?
ton nnd Saratoga had to precede the
Yorktown surrender, so 1 would trace
the great onward movements of tha
human race to show how we are fast
approaching the golden milestone
where the world can he redeemed from
sin. Then I would try to show how the
A_.glo-_-.___-.__-_, aD ? human _?-??noy
can take the chief part In this glad
some and worldwide triumph if wc
will only move forward in Cod's name

But this condition of individual rigl

was a time when the names husba

John Lubbock In his book entitl
"The Origin of Civilization," "when
many tribes the children took the nm

are more willing to recognise their re?

conscientiously try to fulfill their re?
sponsibilities in family life.
Tlie next groat battle for the world's
redemption was fought and won when
the frowning walls of religious in?
tolerance were battered down and the
torture dungeons of the dark ages were
forever opened to the purifying light
Ah, the battle for religious liberty was
a long and a bitter struggle! lt was
not won in a day, a decade, a genera?
tion or a century. It fought its way
through the living stones and the
bloody swords and tho spears and the
martyrdoms of Christians of apostolic
times. Tlie fight for emancipation wont
on among tho crackling Sames of burn?
ing Home, lt clutched by their throats
Hie man eating monsters that leaped
into Hie Doman Coliseum, it defied
tha lowering looks and the blasphe?
mous oaths of the mobs that gathered
in tho Florentine square of beautiful
Italy to sci' Savonarola die. It suffered
all the agonies which Foi recorded li?
llis "History of the Lives and Suffer?
ings and Triumphant Heaths of the
Primitive as Well as the Protestant
Martyrs." It steeled tho backbone of
lion hearted Martin Luther as well as
of John Huss. It fought Its battle un?
til at last the opened Bible was placed
in the hand of the common people and
every man was free to worship Cod ac?
cording to tlie dictates of his con?
science, whether lu the Christian
church, the Jewish tampia or the Mo?
Ko man can be said to worship Cod
in sincerity and truth unless lie bows
before the mercy seat under the Im?
putes of a free will. When Torque?
mada headed the Inquisition and
Charles IX. was drunk with human
blood and "Hloody Mary" signed tlie
death warrant of over 300 mnrtyrs nnd
Charlemagne forcibly drove the people
of his kingdom into tlie rivers, where,
like struggling cattle, the priests bap?
tized them by the wholesale, fear may
have made the frightened men and
women bow and profess Christ, but
fear never yet made a true Christian.
Yon cannot terrorize a man into the
kingdom of Cod with the executioner's
ax or tho slave master's lash.
The Bible is full of tlie gospel Invita?
tions "to come." "Come, for all things
are now ready. Come, come, cornel"
But upon no page of tho Bible can you
lind anywhere the words written:
"Come to Christ against your willi"
"Come with hate in your heart!"
"Come with defying sin on your lips'."
"Come as a trembling murderer ls led
to the scaffold or tn Incarceration foi
life!" Thus we find that the second
great onward movement for the world's
redemption was taken when bigotry's
swarthy limbs, were manacled, wher
the hissing tongue of persecution wai
stip< d and when religious liberty coul*
*l!fj up. her smiling face t.wurd tli*
heavens nnd stretch forth Tier whit*
hands to lend, as well as to protect, i
free human race.
The World In Sympathy.
Thc next great onward movement fo
the world's redemption ls to be fount
in the commercial supremacy whirl
has brought all tlie five continents an*
the islands of thc sea iuto sympathetl
touch. Then; was a time when a mai
rarely traveled 100 miles from the pine
where he was born. His grave wa
dug only a short distance from wher
the tree was planted out of which hi
cradle was cut. The world was no
only divided Into nations, but the nr
tions into distinct and antagonlsti
clans. The Scotchman born in th
highlands could not understand the d
aloet of the lowlanders. Hut now ey
erywhere commercialism is making c
one blood all nations that dwell upo
the face of the earth. Tho America
sailor's "Yo, heave!" ls heard by tl
wharfs of Tnrshish. The East India
merchantmen and the ships for Chin
anil Japan nnd the Philippines ar
Australis and New Zealand follow cai
other through the Suez canal. Tl
railroads of Brazil and the stoamsh
lines of Chile and Buenos Ayres ni
Capo Town nre owned by foreign ca
ital. The Russian warships aro beta
built in the American shipyards.
groat international war is becomii
more and more an Impossibility h
cause the Turkish mortgages aro he
in Parla, Berlin and London and Wi
street, nnd the foreign capitalists mu
risc or fall together.
But from a spiritual standpoint wi
do we say that a great battle was w<
because commercialism lias brought:
the world into sympathetic touch?
the callie sunken i: .d't the seas, t
telegraphic wires strung overhead, t
railroad lines bringing New York n
San Francisco into closer communi*
tion than were ome Mew York a
Georgia, and the great steamboat lin
turning nil oceans into ferries?are a
of those to have anything to do wi
the advent of the millennial dawn?
that wonderful Invention of Johan*
Gutenberg called printing, the o
prowtb of which ls the modern nev
paper press, to have no part in 1
world's redemption! Oh, yes. _
Bible does not say that the world sh
grow gradually better and better, 1
lt does say that when the "gospel
tho kingdom shall be preached in
the world for a witness unto all :
tlons then shall the end come." A
how can that gospel be preadied qui
er to til people than through the r
diam of the telegraph and telephc
and railroad train and psssenj
steamboat lines and freight boa
When tb. revision of thc New Tes
mont was completed some years i
was not the book telegraphed verbal
in one night from New York to C
cago? And can we not, through
conquest of a mercenary commerc
ism, scatter practically in the tv
kling of an eye the gospel of Je
Christ to tlie furthermost parts of
earth, so that whole nations shall
born in a day?
Promise of Universal Peace.
Another groat preliminary battle
the world's redemption was fought
won when the parliament of relig:
assembled at the world's fair in I
Then nil the intelligent merni
of the Anglo-Saxon race realized
nover before that the gospel of J<
Christ was not only the best of al
Uglona, hut also that it is the only
pel which promises perfect peace
side of the grave aa well as salva
guli. During their conversation this
dark colored native of India exultantly
said: "Ah, you are from America! We
art! soon going to semi over our mis?
sionaries to Chicago, and we shall con?
vert America to the teachings of Kail,
Buddha and Mohammed." But when
the oriental missionaries began to talk
we remembered the burning ghats of
the Ganges. We could hear the death
eries of the child widows who were
being sacrificed upon the funeral pyres.
We could see the superstitions and de?
baucheries of the harems and the deg?
radations of their pimple in the east.
Edwin Arnold's "Light of Asia" might
burn brightly when fed by the oil of
the poetic Imagination of the gifted
English writer, who married a dark
skinned daughter of the enst, but Ar?
nold's "Light of Asia" was found to be
ns dark as India, with its teeming mil?
lions in utter darkness -darkness black
ns that of Africa or us dark us the be?
nighted human beings who, ns canni?
bals, are banqueting off human flesh.
As nil peoples must believe In a Cod
of .onie sort, so today, as never before,
tho Intelligent, civilized nations know
that the gospel of Jesus Christ ls the
only gospel which will bring true peace
mid progress to tho world. When a nn
tho chief asked Queen Victoria the
source of England's strength she hand?
ed him a Bible. So, today, most of the
civilized races are ready to confess
.bat the strength of the mightiest
earthly governments is centered In the'
word of Cod. Where the Bible is not,
thors are superstition and ignorance
ami brutalizing crime.
Thus ninny preliminary battles have
already been fought mid won. Now
comes th.; practical question, What
race of people is going to start forth
to lead In the last great battle, which
ls to be fought for the redemption of
the world for Christ? Has Jesus a
right to look with hope toward uny
people more confidently than to the
Anglo-Saxon race? Erom what race
came tin- crusaders. Codfroy nnd Fred
erlck Barbarossa and Baldwin of
Flanders and Richard the Lion Heart?
ed aud Frederick II.? From what race
came the pilgrim fathers, who crossed
the seas Imbued with many noble am?
bitions, the chief of which was to car?
ry the gospel of Jesus Christ to tbe
farthermost ends of the earth? Among
the hearts of what people was the great
foreign missionary cause first boru?
Who today are striving most of all to
civilize and Christianize the world at
large? Is it not the members of the
Anglo-Saxon race? Are there anypeoplo
who can be more Justly called a Chris?
tian people than the Anglo-Saxons?
The Dominant Anglo-Saxon.
The Anglo-Saxon race ls best quali?
fied to lead in this great forward move?
ment for Christ also because in this
century lt holds a position of domi?
nant power and Influence among the
nations analogous to that held by an?
cient Rome at the birth of Christiani?

Then where can you find a peopl
mentally and spiritually and physical]
better equipped to carry forth this go;
0 pel message than the members of th
? Anglo-Saxon race? To conquer th
world for Christ Cod is going to Uf
giants now ns he used giants of ol*
"Cod made the violin," Stradivaris
used to say, "hut God had to first mali
an Antonio Stradivarius before he coul
put together liis best violins." Und*
the power of the Holy Spirit the apo
tollc messengers were able to scatti
the gospel messages everywhere. Bi
how could such wonders have been a
eompUshed In so short a time unle:
God had first sent forth a messengc
mentally and spiritually gigantic, i
he did when he sent forth l'aul? Ai
where can God get better modem eml
earles, if we are willing to do what \
ought to do, than among the membe
of the Anglo-Saxon race?
Christ'- Gospel Must Triumph.
There are many reasons why t'
Anglo-Saxon race should lead In tl
movement. Some of these may be 1
larded as fanciful nnd romantic. It
Dot long since a professor, formerly
Yale university, undertook to pro
that the Anglo-Saxon race represer
the t*Vi lost tribes of Israel, and
even asserted that the present reig
ing house of Great Britain is descend
from King Solomon, through a Hebrt
princess named Tea Teph', who I
came the hilde of King Fergus of I
land and Scotland, from whom descei
ed King James VI. of Scotland, w
became King James I. of England. 1
contended that the very stone whi
forms the seat of thc coronation elm
on which the monarchs of Great Briti
6lt when they are crowned, orlginu
formed part of Solomon's temple a
was brought to Ireland by Tea Te]
herself as a precious relic. With
auch fanciful traditions we have no
ing to do. The essential fact is tl
the gospel of Christ, which must u
mately triumph, la enshrined In
hearts of the Anglo-Saxon race m
than in those of any other race i
that they have the opportunity and
qualities which fit them to embrace
of propagating that gospel to the ei
of the earth.
This glorious consummation
Christ's earthly kingdom, I believe, i
be achieved under Cod's omnipot
poyer, working through the An;
3ai.n race. Who will lead tlie wt

Where will the movement for the f
triumph begin? It may be in sue
church as this, but it will be so
where where there is a band of
lgonizing In suppm-aimi! ,_? uuu ,
power. There is an old proverb which
[joes something like this: "The best
way for a city to keep Its streets clean
ls for every man to cleun the sidewalk
In front of bia own home." The best
way for the Anglo-Saxon race to start
on tlds worldwide mission ls for us, as
individuals, to stnrt here and start
now. A little handful, under the power
of thc Holy Spirit, we may accomplish
at leu st ns much for Christ as did that
little band of praying men and women
in the upper chamber of Jerusalem.
The Sinn of Victory.
So, today, I want to enlarge your
gospel horizon. 1 want to show you
that the work you can do for Jesus
should 1k> studied no longer through a
microscope, but through a telescope. 1
want to show you that, as all time is
merely nothing more than a long suc?
cession of seconds and minutes and
days nnd weeks nnd years, so all great
events are merely the accumulations
of the works of single individuals. The
Anglo-Saxon In great units may be
composed of nations. The Anglo-Saxon
race lu small units ls composed of in
dlvlduuls Just like ourselves. Will you
and I sturt here nnd now, with God's
help, for the conquest of the world for
Christ? Will you and I here and now
consecrate our lives to his service, so
that WO may become his acceptable
messengers for this work?
The final redemption of the world
would not be far off if we could only
bring Jeans In touch with all man?
kind. An imaginative religious writer
once lind this beautiful dream about
how the world wus finally to be con?
quered for Jesus. It wus, I believe,
to be in the year 2001. A great inter?
national war was about to burst over
Europe. All the nations of that conti?
nent were divided into two sides. Eng?
land, Germany, Norway, Sweden, Bel?
gium and Holland were on the one
side. France, Spain, Italy, Turkey,
Austria and Russia were upon the oth?
er side. Tho great armies were mar?
shaled into two mighty hosts, the tread
of whose feet and the rumble of whose
cannon made the eurth shake. The
night before the decisive battle was to
open the camp fires of the sleeping sol?
diers stretched for miles and miles
away. But the night before that bat?
tle opened a strange being was seen
to go rapidly through the different
camps of the nations. Upon the breasl
of each soldier he pinned a badge or t
sign. The next morning the bugles
sounded, and the armies were drawi
up in battle array. But when the gen
orals gave the commands "Fire!" an*
"Charge:" not one gun spoke, not om
soldier moved. Then the generals be
gan to Inquire the cause. They foun*
out the reason. The strange being win
the night before went from camp fr
camp was Jesus Christ. The badg
which was pinned upon every soldier'
breast was the sign of the cross. Jesu
had at last conquered. The sign of foi
givenesK and of love and pardon an
?'Sinlessness had at Inst uplkett tho gan
of war and turned every soldier into a
emissary of peace. Thor*' is only on
way I would change that wonderfi
dream of the gospel writer. In th
last great battle of sinful war I woul
not have the members of the Angle
Saxon race participant.. The tiigl
before the battle was to open I woul
have Jesus Christ go through the cam
?f the Slav, the Malay and all the pei
pies cf the earth, led by a whit
skinned guide. That guide I woul
have the ruddy, flaxen haired Cauci
alan. Ute guide whom I would call tl
Anglo-Saxon race. Oh. my brother an
sister, by the consecration of your liv*
and prayers will you uot help mal
this scene possible, Will you not hci
and now start forth, by God's help. I
conquer in the near future the wor
for Jesus Christ?

torian's Daily Life.
The daily life of Thiers was very pe?
culiar. He rose always at a very early
hour, about 5 o'clock In the morning,
seldom later. After a cup of coffee aud
a light repiirt he would work steadily
for many hom.. Then he usually took
a wulk or would perhaps play a game
of tennis before breakfast, which meal
was served ut the usual French hour.
Then he would speak to his friends and
go out for a drive, Bomet-uies pay visits
and return a little after 4, when he
went regularly to bed and slept till lt
was time to get ready for dinner. For
some extraordinary reason his dinner
hour was 7:50, and he was very punc?
tual. After dinner he always slept for
twenty minutes or half an hour aud
then would remain up chatting and
talking to a late hour, lils brightest
moment was always subsequent to his
after dinner sleep. No oue could be
more agreeable in conversation, more
easy or natural or more ready to Im?
part Information without being prolix.
He was a titi. Provencal In all his
taste, and habits. He loved the bright
sun of his native Provence. Ile thor?
oughly appreciated the peculiar charm
of the coast near Marseilles, the beau?
ty of the gray olive groves and the
smile of the Mediterranean. He pre?
ferred tbe dishes of Provence to almost
any others. He used to mix oil liberal?
ly with his food, and I remember at a
dinner at the Duehesse Gulliera's a
fair sized bottle of oil was specially
placed next his plate, and he consumed
it all,?Cornhill Magazine.
Pnzcled the 1'rof.n .or?.
An pmuslng joke was practiced upon
the examiners at Cambridge, says a
London paper. It had been said that
the examination^ In mathematics had
been becoming far too difficult, and
very real complaints had arisen from
tutors. To the astonishment of tho
university, all the elgtheen or so so?
lutions appeared on the day before tho
examination in the Cranta, "worked
out, we believe, by our office boy."
How the miracle was performed re?
mained a secret until lt had been suf?
ficiently wondered at. The editor of
tho Granta had secured the services of
a number of recent senior wranglers,
who In privacy had deliberately set to
work to muster the problems which tha
university dons had beefl concocting
for months past. The task had to be
accomplished within twenty-four hours,
and the printers were up all night set?
ting the solutions in type. Naturally
the Granta sold by the thousand that
How Ile Got lt.
A good story is told about a former
member of the Missouri legislature.
Before his election he was chronically
"broke." When he returned from Jef?
ferson City, he exhibited $500 In good,
crisp greenbacks. Some of his friends
"Jollied" bim about his prosperity.
"You didn't ba vs a tout when you.
went to the legislature, did you,
Jones?" said one of them.
"Not a blamed cent," said Jones.
"As a matter of fact I lent you half
your railroad fare, didn't 1?"
"I believe you did."
"Well, you were down In Jefferson
City about forty days. You got $5 a
day. Now, what the gang wanta to
know is how you managed to save $500
out of a total Income of $200."
"Come closer," whispered Jones, "and
EU tell you how I did lt. I had my
washing done at home."?Kansas City
In Gold Hill, Nev., iu 1877, one of
the mining bosses -Tole by name?had
trouble with some of the laborers in
bis mine. One night three of them at?
tacked him in a barroom. Two of them
pinned him down, while a third stood
over him with a revolver. The muzzle
almost touched his stomach. Once,
twice, thrice, a fourth and a fifth time
the weapon snapped. Tole closed his
eyes. Each moment he expected to be
his last. The disgusted ruffian threw
his disappointing weapon on the floor,
with au oath, and, Joined by bis aids,
left the place. Tole wiped thc cold
sweat from his brow, mechanically
picked up the discarded weapon, went
to the door and fired off every charge,
remarking that it was Just bis luck.
European and American Oysters.
The oysters of America and Europe
differ greatly. European oysters are
smaller and have a coppery taste. Our
southern oysters are larger than the
northern. They are dredged along the
coast and transferred to oyster beds in
creeks close to shor, where they fat?
ten. In London oyster salesmen some?
times keep oysters for a few days In
water to which oatmeal has been add?
ed, for tbe purpose of rendering them
more delicate and of better flavor.
When out of season?during spawning
time?tho oyster is soft and milky and
uot flt to be eaten.
A Raw Oy_t_r.
Although the actual amount of nutri?
tive material in a raw oyster ls small,
lt comprises all classes of food sob
stances lu a peculiarly assimilable
form. Generally speaking, the raw,
mollusk consists of four-fifths water.
The danger?a remote one?of the oys?
ter containing living typhoid fever
germs may be obviated by the use of
lemon Juice. The oyster ls rendered
tough aud indigestible by bolling.
