We consider it a great thing- to live to be an octogenarian. Ii any one dies in youth we -say-. "What a pity!" Dr. Muhienbertr in old are, i-aid that the hymn tvritten in early life by his own hand, no more ex pressed his sentiment when it said: I would not live aSway. If one be pleasantly circutrtstanced he iieA-er wants to jro. William Cttlleit Dry a at, the great poet, at stl years of age standing- in my house in a festal croup, reading- Thane topis'' without spectacles, was just as anxious to live a.s when at 13 years of ag-e he wroto the immortal threnody. Cato feareel as Su years of ag-e that he would not livo to learn. Creek. Morialdeseo at 115 years, writing- the history of bis time, feared a. eollap.se. Theopbrastus writ ing" a book at t0 years of aye was anx ious to live to complete it. Thurlow Weed at about s yea -s of aye found life as great a desirabi.ity as when lie h-miu'ed out his first politician. Albert Karnes, so well prepared fer the next world, at TO said he would rather stay here. So it is all the way down. I ssuppajse that the last time Methuselah was out of doors in a storm be was afraid of getting- his feet wc-t lest it shorten his days. Indeed, I some time ayo preached a sermon on the blessing--s of longevity, but in this, the; last day of Is.ai. and when many are filled with sadness at the thouyht that another chapter of their life is closing-, and that they have 305 days less to live. I propose to preach to you about the advautayes of an abbreviated earthly existence. Jf 1 were an agnostic I would say a man is blessed in proportion to the number of years he can stay on "terra, lirma," because after that lie falls otf the clocks, and if he is ever picked out eif the d.-pths it is only to be set up ia some morg-ue of the universe to see if anybody will claim him. If I thouyht Cod made man only to last forty or 1:1 ty or a hundred years, and then he was to yo in to annibilatio u, I would say his chief business ought to be to keep alive and even in yood weather to be very cautious, and to carry an um brella, and take overshoes, and life preservers, and bronze armor, and weapons of defense" lest he fall oaf into nothinyness and obliteration. but, my friends, you are not agnos tics. 1 ou believe in immortality anl the eternal residence of the righteous in heaven, a ml therefore 1 tirst. remark that ait abbreviated earthly existence is to be desired, and- is a biessiuy because it makes one's life-work very compact. Some men yo to business at 7 o'clock in the morning- and return at 7 in the evening-. Others yo at & o'clock and return at l'-i. Others yo tt 10 and return at 4. I have friends who are ten hours a day in business, others who are five hours, others who are one hour. They all do their work well: they do their entire work and then they return. Which position do you think the most desirable? You say, otiier thinys beinq- ?qual, the man who is the shortest time detained in business and who can return home the quickest is the most blessed. Xotv, my friends, why not carry that yood sense into the subject of transference from this world? If a person die in ilohot d. lie yets t i roe. at 9 o'clock in the morning-, at 4f. years of aye. he yets work at 1:2 o'clock noon. bis If work te d e throuyh his If he d e he yets tit rough his in the afternoon, has to toil all the at 70 years of asre. work at 5 o'elocl If he die at SH, he way on up to 11 o clocit at niyht. li e sooner we pet through our work the bett -r. The harvest all in barracn or barn, the farmer does not sit down in the stubble held. but shoulderlny his scythe and taking- his pitcher from under a tree, he makes a straiyht line for the old homestead. All Ave watt to be anxious about is to yet our Avork done and well done, the quicker the better. Ayain: There is 'a blessiny in an ab breviated earthly existence in the fact that moral disaster mtyht come upen the man if lie tarried lonyer. A man who had been prominent in churches, and who had been admired for his p-enerosity and kindness everywhere, for foryery was sent to state prist n for Jifteen years. Twenty years be fore there was no more probability of that man's cotmnittiny a commercial dishonesty than that you will commit commercial dishonesty. The number of man who fall into ruin between fifty ai d seventy years of aye is simply ap ai'.intr. If they had died thirty years be fore it Vould have been better for them and better for their families. The shorter the voyage the less chance for a cyclone. There is a wrong- theory abroad that if one's youth be right his old aye will be riyht. You rnicht as tvell say there is nothiny wanting- for a ship's safety except to g-et it fully launched on the Atlantic ocean. I have some times atked thosa who were ssclxooi mates or j colleg-e mates of some great defrauder, "What kind of a boy was he? What kind of a youny man was he?" and they have said, "Why, he was a splen did fellow: I had no idea lie could ever yo into such an outraye." The fact is the great temptation of life sometimes comes far on in mid life or ia old aire. The first time I crosse 1 the Atlantic ocean it was as smooth as a mill pond and 1 thouyht the sea captains and the voyayers had slandered the old ocean, and I wrote home an essay for a maga zine on "The Smile of the Sea," but I never afterward could have written that thing-, for before we yot home we yot a terrible shaking- up. The first voyage of life may be very smooth: the last may bis a euroelydon. M a ny who start life in great prosperity do not end it in prosperity. The great pressure of temptation, comes sometimes in this direction; at about forty-five years of aye, a man's nervous system chart ires, -and some one tells him he mus tak stimulant? to keep himself up, and he takes stimu lants to iteep himself up, until the stimulants keep him down; or a man has been yoiny alonrr for thirty or forty years in unsuccessful business, and here is an e-peniny where by one dishonorable action he can lift himself and lift his family from all financial embarrassment. He attempts to leap the chasm and lie falls into it. Then it is in after life that the ereat temptation of success conies. If a man make a fortune before thirty years of aye, lie generally loses it before forty. The solid a nd permanent fort-mes for the most part do not come to their cli max until in mid-life, or in old aye. The most of the bank presidents have white hair. Many of those who have been laryely successful have been cursed by arroyance or world liness or dissipation in old aye. They may not have lost their inteyrity, but they have become so worldly and so seliish under the in fluence of la rye success that it is evi dent to everybody that their success has been a temporal calamity and an eternal daraaye. Concerniny many people it may be said it seems as if it would have been better if they could have embarked from this life at twenty or thirty years of aye. Do you know the reason why the vast majority of people die before thirtv-live? It is be cause they have not the moral endur ance for that Avhich is beyond the thirty, and a merciful Cod will not allow them to be put to the fearful strain. Ayain: The re is ablessiuy in an ab breviated earthly existence in the fact that one is the sooner taken oft' the de fensive. As soon as one is old enouyh to take care of himself he is put on his guard. bolts on the door to keep out the robbers. Fire-proof safes to kep off the names. Life insurance and lire insurance ayalnst accident. Ke ceipts lest you have to pay a debt twice. Lifeboat ayaitist shipwreck. Westinyhouse a ir brake ayaiust rail road collision. There are many ready to overreach you and take ail you have. Defense ayainst c-old. defense ayaiust heat, defense against sickness, defense ayaiust the world's abuse, defense all the way down to the grave, and even the tombstone sometimes is not a surlicient barricade. If a soidier who has been on guard, shivering- arid stuny with the cold, paeina' up and down the parapet with shouldered musket, is ylad when some one comes to relieve jruartl and he can yo inside the fortress, ought not that man to shout for joy who can put down his weapon of earthly defense and yo into the kiny's castle? Who is the more fortunate, the soldier who has to stand yuard twelve hours, or the man who has to stand yuard six hours? We have common sense about everything but reiiyion, common -sense about everything- but transference from this world. Ayain: There is a blessiny in an ab breviated earthly existence in the fact that one escapes so many bereavements. The lonyer we live the more attach ments and the more kindred, the more chords to be wounded or rasped or sundered. If a man live on to seventy or eiyhty years of aye, how many graves are cleft at his feet! In that lony reach of time father and mother yo, brothers and sisters yo, children yo, yrandchildren yo. personal friends outside the family circle whom they had loved with a love like that of David and Jonathan. Besides that, some men have a nat ural trepidation about dissolution, and ever and anon, duriny forty or fifty or sixty years, this horror of their disso lution shudders throuyli soul and body. Xow. suppose the lad yoes at 16 years of aye? He escapes tifty funerals, fifty caskets, fiftv obsequies, fifty awful wrenchinys of the heart. It is hard enouyh for us to bear their departures but is it not easier for us to bear their departure than for them to stay and bear fifty departures? -shall Ave not by the yrsce of Cod rouse our selves into a yenerosity of bereavement, which will practically say, "It is hard enouyh for me to yo throuyh this be reavement, but how ylad 1 am that lie will never have to yo throuyh it.'' So I reason with myself, and so you will find it helptul to reason with yourselves. David lost his son. Thonyh David was kiny he lay on the earth mourning- and inconsolable for some time. At this distance of time, which do you really think was the one to be congratulated, the short-lived irhild cu the lony-lived father? Had David died as early as that child died he would, in the first place, have escaped that par ticular bereavement, then he would have escaped the wor.e bereavement of Absalom, his re er want son, and the pursuit, of the Phil it-tineas, and the fatigues of his military campaign, a sad the jealousy of Saul, and the perfidy of Ahithophel. and the curse of shimei, and the destruction of his family at Ziklay, and above ad. he would have escaped the two yreat calamities of his life, the yreat sins of uncle ?. n ness aad murder. David lived to be of vast use to the church and the world, bat so 1 far as his own happiness was con cerned, does it not seem to you that it would have been better for him to have gone early? Now, this, my friends, ex phi i 11s some thinys that to you have beea inexplic able. Tins shows you why when Cod takes little children from a household, he is very apt to take the bi iyhtest, the most yenial, the most sympathetic, the most talented. Why? It is be cause that kind of nature suiters th most A-hen it does sutler, and is most liable to temptation. Cod saw the tempest sweepiny up from the Carib bean, and he put the delicate craft into the first harbor. "Taken away from the evil to come." Ayain, my friends, there is a bless iny in an abbreviated earthly exist ence in the fact that it puts one sooner in the center of ihimrs. All astrono mers, intidel as well as Chris tian, ayree in believiny that the. universe swings around some great center. Any one who has studied the earth and studied the heavens knows that God's favorite figure in geometry is a circle. "When Cod put forth ,his hand to create, the universe, he did not strike that hand at right angles, but he waved it in a circle and kept on waving it in a circle until systems and constellations and galaxies and all worlds took that motion. Cur planet swinging; around the sun. other planets swinging around other suns, but some where a yreat hub around which the great wheel of the universe turns. Now, that center is heaven. That is the capital of the universe. That is the yreat metropolis of immensity. Now. does not our common sense teach us that in matters of study it is better for us to move out from the center toward the circumference, rather than to be on the circumference Avhere our world now is? We are like, those who study the American conti nent while standing on the Atlantic beach. The way to study the con tinent is to cross it, or yo to the heart of it. Our standpoint in this world is detective. We arc at the wrong end of the telescope. The best way to study a piece of machinery is not to stmid ou the doorstep and try to look in. but to yo in with the engineer and take our place right amid the saws and the cylinders. We wear our eyes out and our brain out from the fact we are study ing under such yreat disadva ntaye. Millions of dollars for observatories to study things about the moon, about the sun, about the rings of Saturn, about transits and oce-ultations and eclipses, simply because our studio, our observatory, is poorly situated. We are down in the cellar trying- to study the palace of the universe, while our departed Christian friends have gone upstairs amid the skylights to study. Now, when one can sooner get to the center of things, is he not to be congratulated? Who wants to be always iu the freshman class? We study Cod in this world by the biblical photograph of him: but we all know we can in live minutes inter view with a friend get a more accurate idea of him than we can by studying him fifty years through pictures of words. The little child that died last night to-day knows more of Cod than all Andover, and all Princeton, and all New Brunswick and all Kdinburgh. and all the theological institutions iu Christendom. Is it not better to yo up to the very headquarters of knowl edge? Does not our common sense teach us that it is better to be at tin center than to he, clear out on the rim of the. wheel holding nervously fast to the tire lest we be suddenly whirled into light, and eternal felicity? Through all kinds of optical instruments, trying to peer in throuyh the cracks and the keyholes of heaven afraid that both doors of the celestial mansion will be swung wide open before our entranced vision rushing about among the apothecary shops of this world wonder ing if this is yood for rheumatism, arid that is yood for neuralgia, and some thing else is good for a bad ooiigh. lest, we be suddenly ushered into a land of everlastiny health where the inhab itant never says, "I am sick." We stick to the world as thoug h we preferred cold drizzle to warm habita tion, discord to cantata, sack-cloth, to royal purple as though we preferred a piano with four or five keys out, of tune to an instrument fully attuned as though heaven and earth had eve-hanged apparel, and earth had taken f.n bridal array and heaven had gone into mourning, all its waters stajmi tit, all its harps broken, ail chalices cracked at the dry wells, all the lawns slopiny to Lite river plowed with graves with dead angels under the furrow. Oh. I want to break up my own infatuation and I want to break up your infatuation for this world. I tell you, if we are ready, and if our work is done, the sooner we go the better, and if there are blessings in longevity I want you to know right Avell there are also blessings in an ab breviated earthly existence. If the spirit of this sermon 1m- true, how consoled you ought to feel about members of your family that went early, "Taken from the evil to come." this book says. What a fortunat- es cape they had! How glad we ought to feel that they will nt-A-er have- to go through the struggles w hich we have had to yo through. They had just time enough to get out of the cradle and run up the sprinytim- hills of this world and tee how it looked, and then they started for a better stopping place. They were like ships that put in at St. Helena, staying- there long enough to let passengers go up and see the barracks of Napoleon's captiv ity, and then hoist sail for the port of their own native land.
