When the npostlo In this text sets
forth tile Idea that so common an ac
tion as the taking of food and drink
Is to bo conducted to tho glory of
God, ho proclaims tho Importance of
religion In tho ordinary ulTulrs of our
life. In all ages of the world thcro
has been a tendency to Bet apart cer
tain days, places und occasions for
worship, nnd to think those were tho
chief realms in which religion was to
net. Now, holy days and holy places
liavo their importance. They give op
portunity for special performance of
Christian duty nnd for regaling tho
religious appetite, but they cannot
tako the place of continuous exercise
of faith and prayer. In other words,
a man -cannot bo so much of a Chris
tian on Sunday that ho aan alToril to
bo a worldling all tho rest of the
week. If a steamer put out for
Southampton and goes one dny In
that direction nnd the jjjher six days
In other directions, how long before
tho steamer will get toSouthu'mpton?
It will never get there. And though
n mnn may seem to bo voyaging
Heavenward during the holy Sabbath
day, if during tho following six days
of tho week ho Is going toward tho
world nnd toward tho ilesh and to
ward tho devil how long will it take
him to reach the peaceful harbor of
Hcnven? You cannot cut so much at
the Sabbath bnnquet that you can nf
Jod religious nbstlncuce the other
dx days. Heroism and princely be
Iiavior on great occasions nro no
apology for lack of right demennor
in circumstances Insignlllcnnt nnd In
conspicuous. The genuine Christian
life is not spasmodic; does not go by
fits and starts. It tolls on through
heat and cold, up steep mountains
and along dangerous declivities, its
eye on tho everlasting hills crowned
with tho castles of the blessed. I
proposo to plead for an everyday re
ligion. In tho first place wo want to bring
tho religion of Christ into our con
versation. When a dam breaks and
two or thrco villages are over
whelmed or an earthquake In South
America swallows a whole city, then
people begin to talk about tho uncer
tainty of life, nnd they Imagine thnt
they nrc engaged in positively roll
pious conversation. No. You may
talk about these things nnd have no
grace of God at all In your heart. We
ought every day to bo talking reli
gion. If there Is nnything glnd about
it, nnything beautiful about it, any
thing important about it, we ought
to bo? continuously discussing. I
have noticed that men just In propor
tion ns their Christian experience is
shallow, talk about funerals and
graveyards nlui tombstones nnd
deathbeds. Tho real, genuine Chris
tian man talks chiefly about this life
and the grent eternity beyond nnd
not so much about tho Insignificant
pnss between these' two residences.
And yet how few circles there nro
where the religion of Jesus Christ Is
welcome. Go into a clrclo .even, of
Christian people, whero they are full
of joy nnd hilarity, and talk' about
Christ or Heaven nnd everything is
immediately silenced. As on a sum
mer day when the forests are full of
life, chntter, chirrup and enrol a
mighty chorus of bird harmony,
every tree branch an orchestra if n
hawk appears in the sky, every voice
stops nnd forests are still. ,lust so
I have seen a lively religious clrclo si
lenced on tho appearance of anything
like religions conversation. No ono
had anything to say save perhaps
eonio old patriarch in the corner of
the room, who really thinks thnt
something ought to be nnid under
i the circumstances; so ho puts ono
foot over tho other and heaves a long
sigh and snys: "Oh, yes; that's so,
that's so!"
My friends, the religion of Jesus
Christ Is something to talk about with
a glad heart. It is brighter than the
-ivnters; It Is more cheerful than the
sunshine. Do not go around groaning
about your religion when you ought to
TTe singing it or talking it in cheerful
tones of voice. How often it Is that
we find men whose lives are utterly
inconsistent who attempt to talk reli
gion nnd always make a failure of itl
Sly friends, we must live religion, or
we cannot talk It. If n man Is cranky
and cross and uncongenial and hard in
his dealings and then begins to talk
about Christ and heaven, everybody is
xepelled by it. Yet I have heard such
men say In whining tones: "We are
miserable sinners." "The Lord bless
you." "The Lord have mercy on you,"
their conversation interlarded with
such expressions, which mean nothing
tilt canting, and canting la the worst
form, of hypocrisy. If we have really
felt tire, religion of Christ in our hearts,
let us talk It, and talk It with an illu
minated countenance, remembering
that when two Christian people talk
Qod gives special attention and writes
down what they say; Malachl 3:10:
"Then they that feared the Lord spake
often one to unother, and the Lord
hearkened and heard it, nnd a book of
remembrance was written,"
Again, I remark, we must bring the
religion of Christ into our employ.
ments. "Oh," you say, "that Is very
well if a mnn handle large sums of
money or if he have on extensive traf
fic, but In the humble work In life that
I am called to the sphere is too small
for the action of such grand, hynycnly
principles." Who told you so? Do you
not know that God watches the faded
leaf on the brook's surface as certainly
as he does the path of a blazing sun?
And the moss that creeps up the side
of the rock makes as much Impression
upon God's mind as the waving tpps
of Oregon pine and Lebanon's cedar,
and the alder, crackling under the
cow's hoof, sounds ns loud In God's ear
as the snap of a world's conflagration.
When you have nnj ihlng to do In life,
however humble it may seem to be,
God is always there to help you to do
it. If your work is that of a fisher
man, then God will help you, ns ho
helped Simon when he dragged Gen
ncsnret. If your work is drawing wa
ter then He will help you, ns when He
talked at tho well curb to the Samari
tan woman. If you are engaged in the
custom house, He will lend you, as He
led Matthew sitting at the receipt of
customs. A religion thnt is not good in
one plncc is not worth anything in nn
other place. The man who has only n
day's wages in his pocket ns certainly
needs the guidnncc of religion ns he
who rnttles the keys of n bank and
could abscond with a hundred thou
sand dollars.
I think that the church of God and
the Sabbath nre only nn armory where
we nre to get weapons. When war
comes, If a man wants to fight for his
country, he does not go to Troy or
Springfield to do battling, but he goes
there for swords and muskets. I look
upon the church of Christ nnd the Sab
bath day as only the plncc nnd time
where nnd when we nre to get nrmcil
for Christian conflict, but the battle
field is on Monday, Tuesdny, Wednes
day, Thursday, Friday and Saturday.
"St. Martin's" and "Lenox" nnd "Old
Hundrcdth"donot nmount tonnything
unless they sing nil the week. A ser
mon is useless unless we enn take it
with us behind the plow nnd the coun
ter. The Sabbath day is worthless if
it last only 24 hours.
There nro many Christians who say:
"We are willing to serve God, but we
do not wnnt to do It in these spheres
about which we nre talking, nnd1 It
seems so Insipid nnd monotonous. If
we had some great occnslon, if we had
lived in the time of Luther, if we had
been I'aul's traveling companion, If
we could serve God on a great scale,
we would do It, but we can't In this
cverydny life." I admit thnt n great
deal of the romance nnd knight er
rnntry of life have disappeared before
the ndvnnce of this practical age. The
ancient temples of Itouen have been
changed into storehouses nnd smith
ies. The residences of poets nnd
princes have been turned into brokers'
shops. The classic mansion of Ashland
hns been cut up Into walking sticks.
The groves where the poets Bald the
gods dwelt have been carted out for
firewood. Tho muses that we used to
vend about have disappeared before
the immigrant's nx and the trnpper's
gun, nnd the man who is waiting for
n life bewitched with wonders will
never find it. There is, however, n
field of endurance and grent achieve
ment, but it is in everydny life. There
nre Alps to scale, there nro Helles
ponts to swim, there are fires to brave,
but they are all around us now. This
is the hardest kind of martyrdom to
Again, we need to bring the religion
of Christ into our commonest trials.
For severe losses, for bereavement, for
trouble thnt shocks like an earthquake
and that blasts like a storm, we pre
scribe religious consolation; but, busi
ness mnn, for the small annoyances of
Inst week how much of the grace of
God did you apply? "Oh," you sny,
"these trials are too small for such ap
plication." My brother, they nre
shaping your chnrneter, they are sour
ing your temper, they nro wearing out
your pat ienec and they nre making you
less nnd less n man. I go into a sculp
tor's studio nnd see him shaping a
statue. He has a chisel In one hand
and n mallet in the other, nnd he gives
a very gentle stroke click, click,
eliekl I say: "Why don't you strike
harder?" "Oh," he replies, "thnt
would shatter the statue. I can't do
it thnt way. I must do it tills way."
So ho works on and after awhile the
fentures come out, and everybody that
enters the studio is charmed and fas
cinated. Well, Rod hns your soul tin
der process of development, nnd it is
the little annoyances and vexations
of llfo that are chiseling out your im
mortal nature. It is click, click, click!
I wonder why some grent providence
docs not conic nnd with ono stroke
prcpnre you for Heaven. Ah, no. God
snys thut Is not the way. And bo ho
keeps on by strokes of little annoy
ances, little sorrows, lhtle vexations,
until at last you shall be a glad spec
tacle for angels nnd for men. You
know that a large fortune may be
spent in small change, and n vast
amount of moral character may go
away In small depletions. It Is the
little troubles of life that ore having
more effect upon you than the grent
ones. A swarm of locusts will kill a
gralnflcld sooner than the Incursion of
three or four cattle. You say: "Since
I lost my child, since I lost my prop
erty, I have been n dltTercnt man."
But you do not recognize the architec
ture of little annoyances that nro
hewing, digging, cutting, shaping,
splitting nnd interjolning your moral
qualities. Hats may sink a ship. One
luclfer match may send destruction
through a block of storehouses. Cath
erine do' Medici got her death from
smelling n poisonous rose. Columbus,
by stopping nnd asking for a piece of
bread nnd drink of wnter at a Fran
ciscan convent, was led to tho discov
ery of tho new world. And there is an
Intimate connection between trifles
and Immensities, between nothings
und everythlngs.
Now, be enreful to let none of those
annoyances go through your soul un
nrrnlgncd. Compel them to adminis
ter to your spiritual wealth. The
scratch of a sixpenny nail sometimes
produces lockjaw, nnd the clip of a
most infinitesimal aonoynncc may
damage you forever. Do not let nny
nnnoynnco or perplexity como across
your bouI without its making you bet
ter. Agnin, we must bring the religion of
Christ into our commonest blessings.
When the nutumn comes nnd the har
vests are in and the governors mnke
proclamations, we assemble In church
es nnd we nre very 'thankful. But
every day ought to be n thnnksglvlng
dny. We do not recognize the com
mon mercies of life. We have to see
a blind mnn led by his dog before we
begin to bethink ourselves of what a
grand thing it is to have undlmmed
eyesight. We have to see some wound
ed man hobbling on his crutch or with
his empty cont sleeve pinned up be
fore we learn to think whnt n grand
tWng God did for us when He gave us
healthy use of our limbs. We are so
stupid that nothing but the misfor
tunes of others can rouse us up to our
blessings. As the ox grazes In the
pasture up to Its eye In clover, yet
never thinking who makes the clover,
and ns the bird picks up the worm
from the furrow, not knowing thnt It
Is God who makes everything, from
the nnlmncule In tho sod to the scrnph

among Its other Instincts, It may
have an instinct by which it recognizes
the Dlvhio hnnd.thnt feeds It. I do
hot know but that God is, through It,
holding communication with whnt

tho watercourse chewing its cud

Tho nroinn of tho flowers smells like

for tho water thnt Gushes up in tho
well, nnd thnt foams in tho cascade,
nnd that laughs over the rocks nnd
thnt putters In tho showers, and that
claps its hands In tho Ben? Who
thnnks God for tho nlr, tho fountain
of life, tho bridge of sunbeams, tho
path of sound, tho grent fan on a hot
summer's day? Who thnnks God for,
this wonderful physicnl organism,
this Bwccp of the vision, this chime
of harmony struck into tho enr, this
soft tread of n myriad delights over
the nervous tissue, this rolling of tho
crimson tide through tho nrtery nnd
vein, this drumming of tho heart on
our march to Immortality. Wc take
all these things ns a mutter o(
Hut suppose Rod should withdraw
these common blessings! Your body
would become nn inquisition of tor
ture, the cloud would rcfuso ruin,
every green thing would crumple up,
nnd tho enrth would crack open tin
tler your feet. Tho nlr would ccaso
its healthful circulation, pestilence
would swoop, nnd every house would
become a plnco of skulls. Streams
would first swim with vermin und
then dry up, nnd thirst nnd hunger
nnd anguish nnd despair would lift
their scepters. Oh compare such n
life ns thnt with the life you live
with your families! Is it not tlmo
thnt, with every word of our lips nnd
with every notion of our life 'we bo
gnn to acknowledge these every-dp.y
mercies? "Whether yo cut or drink
or whutsoever ye do, do nil to tho
glory of Rod." Do I address a mnn
or a woman who has not rendered to
God ono single offering of thanks?
I was preaching on Thanksgiving
dny and announced my text "Oh,
give thanks unto tho Lord, for Ho Is
good nnd His mercy endureth for
ever." I do not know whether there
wns nny blessing on the sermon or
not, but the text went straight to n
young man's heart. Ho said to him
self ns 1 rend tho text: "Oh, give
thnnks unto tho Lord, for Ho Is
good' Why, I hnve never rendered
llim nny thanks! Oh, whnt nn in
grnto I hnve been!" Cnn it ho, my
brother, that you hnvo been fed by
the good hand of Rod nil these dnys,
thnt you hnvo had clothing and shel

henrt to God? Oh, let a sense of tho
Divine-goodness shown in your every
day blessings melt your henrt, and if
you havo never before uttered nn enr
nest note of thnnksgiving let It bo

What I say to ono I suy to all. Tnko
this practical religion I havo recom

Make every day a Sabbath and every

Judgo Samuel Davis, of Marshall,

Will Prince, told a story yestorday to
a group of lawyers In tho prosecuting
attorney s oflico about tho first murder
case hoover holped try.
"It's funny," said Judgo Davis,
"how after u lawyer gets a jury Im
paneled ho always becomes dissatis
fied with it. I holped prosecuted In tho
first inurdor trial in which I took part.
After wo got our jury I looked it over
and said to my co-counsel: "Thero is
a mau whoso name wo ought to have

don't think any of them would hang a
"I didn't think they would either,
and begun to lose hope. I turned to
an old fellow who was sitting near me
and asked: 'Do you think thoy would
hang a man?' Ho looked them over
for a full ralnuto and then answored:
'Yes they'd find a man guilty und go
twenty miles to see him hung.'
"Well, wo went Into irlal. Tho jury
was out only fifteen minutes and
brought in a vordict of murder in tho
first degree. I started up street and
had gono only a short distance when
some fellow run up und struck mo on
tho back. I turned around and saw it
was ono of the jurors.
"Say, when do you think that hang
