subject of bis discourse waa "Revision of

Deoe-nber at Bethany on the ruins of the
house of Mary and Martha and Lazarus. W*
dismounted from our horses on the way up
from Jordan to the Dead sea. Bethany waa
tbe bummer evening retreat of Jesus. After

the size of the rooms, an opuieut borne. Laz?
arus, tb* brother, was now the head of the
household, and his sisters depended on him
and were proud of him, for he was very pop?
ular and everybody liked bim, and these girls
were splendid girls. Martha a first rate
housekeeper and Mary a spirituelle, some?
what dreamy, hut affectionate and aa good
a girl as could be found in all Palestine. But
on* day Lazarus got sick. Tbe sisters
were in consternation. Father gone and
mother gone, they feel very nervous lest they
lose their brother also. Disease did its quick
work. How the girls hung over bis pillow I
Not much sleep about that house, no sleep
at all. From the characteristics otherwhere
developed I judge that Martha prepared the
medicines aud made tempting dishes of food
for tbe poor appetite of the sufferer, but Mary
prayed and sobbed. Worse and worse gets
Lazarus until tho doctor announces that be
can do no more. Tbe shriek that want up
from that household when the laat breath had
bean drawn and the two siste-s wart being
led by sympathizers into the adjoining room
all those of us can imagine who have had our
own heart* broken. But why was not Jesus

In Bethany, Lazarus had been buried four
days and dissolution had taken place. In
that climate the breathless body disintegrates
more rapidly than in ours. If, immediately
after decease, that body had been awakened
into life, unbelievers might have said be was
only in a comatose state, or in a sort of
trance, and by some vigorous manipulation
or powerful stimulant vitality bad been re?
newed. Nol Four days dead. At tbe door
of the sepulcher is a crowd of people, but tha
three moat memorable are Jesus, wno waa th?
family friend, and the two bereft sisters. Wa

and it is deep down and dark, and with torc be*

in the Bible there was present an excited mul?

The unfortunate thing now is that so mai
Christians are only half liberated. They ha
been raised from the death and burial of a

John Calvin believed, as some say he did, in
the damnation of infants, although some ot
the recent bot disputes would seem to imply
that there is such a thing as Vhs damna?

in tbe damnation of infant* himself

What Christ will do with all th* babies iu tb*

tn some of the creeds is that they try to tall na
all about th* decrees of God. Now tbe only
human being that was ever competent to
handle that subject was Paul, and he would
not have been competent had he not been in?
spired. I believe in tbe sovereignty of God
and I believe ha man's free agency, but no
one can harmonize tbe two. It is not naoas
nary that w?j harmonize them. Every sermon
that I have ever beard that attempted such
harmonization wa* to rn* aa clear as a Lon?

Paul on that subject than all of Calvin's in?

Port Said the evening before au old traveler
said: "The wind is Just right to giv* you a
rough landing at Joppa; iudeed, I think
you will not be able to land at all." Tbe fact
waa that when our Mediterranean steamar
dropped anchor near Joppa aud we put out
for shore in the small boat, the water was as
still is thounh it bad been sound asleep a hun?
dred years, and we landed as easily aa I came
on this platform. Well, your fears have
