The Yale man had undertaken to

gave her several letters of introduc

he asked her the result a week later
she replied that nothing had devel

obliged to him.
"For what?" he queried.
"Why, for all your kindness and
trouble, of course."
"Nonsense; I've done nothing; you
have gained nothing," came from the
former football player.
"Well, you tried. anyway, and I'm
obliged to you." she insisted.

bulject: The Sin of Irreverence.
Brooklyn. N. Y.-Dr. Charles Edward
Locke. in the Hanson Place 'M. E.
Church Sunday. preached on "Popular
Desecration of Sacred Vessels: or, The
Sin of Irreverence." The text was
from II Sanuel vi:G-7: "tzzab put
forth :his. hand to the ark of God and
t'ook hold of it: and God smote him
there for his error." Dr. Locke said in
the course of his sermon:
There is danger that our greatest
national sin shall be the sin of irrev
erence. The ancient story of Tzzah's
act of desecration in placing his hand
upon the' holy ark of God is full of
serious and importaut lessons which
apply with solemn signiticance to our
age, and our country and our indi
vidual citizenship.
God had given commendment to
Moses to construct a sacred chest to
be overlaid within and without with
pure gold. It was to be surmounted
with two cherubim of beaten gold.
This ea:;ket was to be a receptacle for
the Tables of Stone which Moses had
received on the top of 'Mount Sinai, and
:s beautiful ark was to be an altar of
prayer which was to be kept 'in the
inidst of the people. for God had said.
"'There will I neet with thee." God
explicitly commanded that no hand
should touch the ark save the priests'
and rings and poles were provided by
which this sacred vessel was 'to be
The Philistines came up against
Israel and captured the ark and held it
a captive for sixty years, when David
conquered Philistia and builded a suit
able place for the ark, and, -vith :10.00M
warriors. went down to the borders of
the enemy's country and secured pos
session of the precious treasure. In
the excitement and joyousness of this
long looked for victory, Uzzah's muortal
sin of irreverence was committed,
which cost him his life.
In the days of prosperity, irreverence
grows most insidiously. When men
feel secure in their own successes they
are prone to forget the commands of
God. We do not depend so helpledly
on our Heavenly Father when our'
achievements have given us great con
tidence in ourselves. National and in
divIdual prosperity are at once our
greatest dang:r and greatest security.
In the fr2nzy of victory, as did Uzzah.
so do we often commit acts of irrever
Sometimes it is fashionable to be ir
reverent. The Philistines, in trans
porting the ark. had placed it upon an
oX eart. and when the Israelites cap
tured the ark they followed the error
of the Philistines and were returning
with the ark drawn by oxen, instead
of carried by the staves and,.rings. as
God nad peremptorily cor manded.
One act of irreverence lea to an
other. And when the ark 'shook as
the cart went over Nachon's threshing
ficor, Uzzah heedlessly committed his
serious offense. When the church al
lows the world to set its fashions, sac
rileges, disastrous and deplorable,
speedily follow.
Two other fruitful causes of irrever
ence are forgetfulness and familiarity.
The 'irk had been in Uzzah's house
since X:is boyhood and he dared to take
privileges with the sacred furniture.
Familiarity sometimes breeds con
telmpt. It is not discoverable that
Utzah was either malicious or willful,
but he was heedless, and even so ap
p:trently a harmless sin as heedlessness
brought upon him the awful penalty
for his disobedience. The infiuence of
sacred things depends upon their sa
c'redness being preserved. God culd
not control Israel without their respect
and obedience. hence the suffering of
Uzzahm. No sin is more treacherous
than irreverence. It decoys its victims.
It is like dry rot in the ship's timbers.
Irreverence slyly gains admittan~ce
where grosser evils would be easily re
pulsed. Satan is constantly busy try
ing to transform the sons of Levi, who
serve at holy altatrs, into the sons of
Eli. Bewvare of the deceptiv'e tenden
cies of familiarity; when delicate re
spect for holy things is lost, then de
tilemnent andi eacrilege easily enter.
When reverence departs character can
not be retained. for character depends
unon faith and in obcdience to sacred
At Belshazzar's feaist, in the sup
posed impregnable city of Babylon, it
was the towering crime of irreverence
in defiling the sacred vessels of the
temple worship at JTerusalem that
brought disaster and death to the dis
solute young monarch. What are some
of the holy things to-day which must
be honored anld preserved?
The church is a sacred vessel. Dedi
cated to the service of God, it should1
not be diverted into secular uses. Je'sus
drove th~e merchants out of the courts
of the 'emple. and, as yet, there has
been no permission granted far their
return. The sons of Aaron were de
voured by the strange tire which they
undertook to offer at the altars of the
Lord. And similar results occur to
day in the consumling of holy instincts
and respectful inclinations, when the
churcha of God Is made a place of
amusement and mrerchandizing. In
chapels and parish ho)uses many things
are proper which in the sanctuary lead
unmistakably to irreverence.
The Bible is a most sacred vessel.
There is not much danger of bibliola
try, but we need tc. be much on our
guard lest the very availability of our
Greek Book shall rause it to be less
:ppreciated. Thing:; are often valued
by use in proportion to the sacrifice
which has beeni suffered for them.
A genetlemnan plaed a copy of the
Gospel of St. JTohn~ on my desk the
other day, and said it cost only two
cents, It was ill excellent type and
neatly bound. Durinlg the days of
the persecution of Diocletian, many
Christians sur'remlo~red their Bihles
and: the sacred utensils cf worship.
and in 00lcolequence lost their faith.

tthe extraordiar~y beauty and power
of thie Bible.
We must valiantly defend the Bible
aginst irre'verence'r. It is tile b)ui
watrk of our civilizationl-the founda
tion of liberty. the cornerstone of
'tml. I submit whether we do rnot
(omanit a serious offeime against the
'".-redness of' tile Book when we in
ulein constant jokes and puns based
upn:: the Scriptures. It cannot b'e
a:'ything less than sinful sacrilege to
weave the holy personages and inci
den'ts of Bible history into ridicu
lous story. The Bible deals with most
serious questions which involve the
life and death and weal and woe of
the race. and do we nct violate its
sacred rights when we make it the
basis of our fun and laughter? This
is a popular desecration. which. likeA
Uzzah's sin. has been compitted so
long that it has not occurred to many
people that they are unintentionally
undermining the very hook which
they desire most to defend.
The Sabbath is a sacred vessel. A
divinely instituted day. for rest an (d
worship and home. We cannot spare
the Sabbath, but we eannot keep it
if it is steadily allowed to becone more
and more a social and a business day.
All vices and enemies of our nation
thrive best where the first day of
the week is decreasingly reverenced.
Dinner parties and hilarious outings
arranged for the Sabbath are direct
attacks upon the security of our -re
public. T11e perpetuity of a1 nation
depends upon the reverence of the
people. When the temples are empty.
the walls of the citadel crumble.
When the altars of worship are ne
lected. virtue and purity are do
throned, a nation's protectors lose their
courage and spirit of sacrifice hmnd
there is speedily decline and fall. -God
has put Himself on record as ready
to cause those nations to "ride upon
the high places of the earth" which
keep His Sabbaths. History fultils
in (.very century the curses of the
Almighty which have rested upon
those people who have destroyed His
holy day. Why do we argue the
onestion when he who runs may read?
The human body is a sacred vessel.
What a marvelous gift is the voice.
with its capabilities of music and
speech. - Alas. that ever its powers are
profaned! Consider. too. the tastes
and appetites and muscular possibili
ties and vital forces. What exquisite
joys God has invested in the human
body! But, desecrated and disre
garded, how this body may become a
bndle of clashing nerves. a prison
pen full of cruel and warring enmini-s.
God's great apostle wro~te. "If any
man defile the temple of God," as the
body is called. "him shall God de
stroy: for the temple of God is holy,
which temple ye are."
The human mind-soul-is a sacred
vessel. A man is not -ith "all dili
gence. for out of it are the issues of
life." Man is the upward looking
animal. Lis mind has been created
with powers of concentration and
analysis. that he might find out God.
When man uses his faculties against d
his Creator. he has desecrated a sacred
vessel. Man's logical faculty and pow- p
ers of invention are often diverted 1.o
the injiury instead of the elevation of
men. A prostituted priating press is
doing much in "v.mpire literature" to r
violate the human mind. A bad book
or an immodest picture is a poisoned C
arrow driven into the mind. from
which an absolute recovery is not pos- 3
sible. Each must revere his own
mind. and shield himself from thea
ten thousand inimical influences that ,
are intended to thrive on the spolia
tion of pure natures. How empty I
would be the playhouses and how
bankrupt many of the publishErs if
the American people would suddenly a
refuse to be any longer the recep
tacles for the filtl? and corruption of s
many of the popular books and most ]
of the nopular dramas!
.Tosephus says that in the closing
scenes of Jerusalem. such were .the ir
reverent and sacrilegeous practices of
the people. that if the Romans had
not destroyed the city, some dreadfuil
judgment like that which befell Sodom C
would have come upon that city. Thus. i
indeed, have nations and cities and
individuals disappeared under the dis
integrating urocesses of irreverence.
As the bold- and wicked Belshazzar
was, in revelry and drunkenness. die- F
filing the sacred vessels of the Lord. r
a white hand came out of the black o
sleeve of the night, and wrote. in
letters of fire, "Thou art weighed in
the balances qnd art found wanting:"
And that night the irreverent young 3
king was found dead in his palace. 3
The inexorable penalty of irreverence .
is death!
But they who bear reverently the
ark of God, who obediently follow the t
commands of God, who daily honor
in thought and deed the Son of God,
who hold in highest esteem the priv- o
ileges of the sorns of God. shall enjoy
peace and joy forever more, for the
rewvard of reverence is life-here and
Drawn Toward the Unseen Country. 0
We have secured a propert-y right in
the unseen country because dear ones
have migrated thither, and it now ex-d
erts a more immediate and vital influ
ence upon us. An oild lady who had
made full acquaintance with bereave-a
ment was asked if she ever receiv'ed
intimation of the presence of those whoe
had parted from her, anid she replied '
that she somnetimo~s felt "a drawing."
Daniel Webster, in lines of tribute to
his angel child, touchingly says that s
hie had expectedI to become the teacher
of the boy, but that now, imjstead, the
boy has becom~e the onesor, the
far and the gu'.de; and the great
statsman humbly beseeches the saint

path. Surely, all who have exp 4i
enced a genuine sorrow by the entrance
of death into the ('herished circle, says
Rev. H. P. Des' y. are constrained, if
they have held toi the Christian faith.

Christian Education a National Safe
our'd.-2 Chron. 17. 7-9; Deut.
31. 11-13.
Education, to be complete, must t-3
of the whole man-physical, intellec
tual, spiritual. An educational
scheme that neglects any of these
elements is imuperfett and may easily
become dangerous.
In this aountry there is small reas
on to fear that education of the physi
cl and the intellectual faculties will
be overlooked. The danger is that
we shall forget the culture of the
spiritual nature.
To avert this danger Christian
schools and colleges are established.
They are not rivals to the state
schools, but supplement these at the
point o& religious culture, while
equaling them in the attention paid
to the other element of education.
But Christian education is not, first
of all, a~ matter of schools. It is a
matter of homes and churches, which
shall see to It that . a-lways in the
study of past events, of present nat
ural phenomena, of processes neut
ral, mathematical, mechanical, bio
logical, there shall always be the
backgrouind of deity. Education
which ignores God is one of.- the
strongest allies of the devil.
Education is development. It may
become either a blessing or a curse.
The things Paul condemns, In one of
the Scripture passages given for ref
erence, are things which develop the
power of evil In the life. Shun these
things, te says. But he does not stop
with mere prohibitions. He provides
positive instructions. He recoin
mends tl:.e doctrine which is according
to godtlirsess. He urges the student's
a~ttitude toward the Word. He in
sists on spiritual education.
There is abundant opportunity for
wrong e(.ucation. Life calls to us in
so many alluring ways, and promises
short cuts to so many desirable
places, thtat it is easy to be deceived.
"Foolish and unlearned" is the apt
description of these short cuts. They
promise learning, but have only the
show of it. They look wise, but their
wisdom ii mere veneered folly. There
is many a. short cut to the making of
a living, but none to the ma~king of a

Cures Belchln of Gas-Bad Breath ad
Bad stomach-Short Breath
Bloating-Sour Eractations
Irregular Heart, Etc.
Take a 2.lull's Wafer any time of the day
or night, and note the immediate good et
feet on yuar stomach. It absorbs the gas,
disintects the stomach, kills the poison
germs and cures the disease. Catarrh of
the nead and throat, unwholesome focd and
overeating make bad stomachs. Scarcely
any stoiach is entirely free from taint of
some kind. Mull's Anti-Belch Wafers will
make your stomach healthy by absorbing
foul gases which arise from the undigested
food and by re-enforcing the lining of the
stomach, enabling it to thoroughly mix
the food with, the gastric jtices. This
cures stomach trouble, promotes digestion,
sweetens the breath, stops belching and
fermentation. Heart action becomes strong
and regular through this process.
Discard drugs, as you know from experi
ence they do not cure stomach trouble. t
Try a common-sense (Nature's) method c
that does cure. A soothing, bealing sensa- t
tion results instantly.
We know Mull's Anti-Belch \V.fers will
do this, and we want you to know it. This
