two passages from the Paulina epistles;

Both these sentences were written by
the most Illustrious merely human be
ing the world ever saw, one who walked
these streets, and preached from yonder;
pile of rocks, Mars Hill.. Though more
slassio associations are connected with
this city than with any other olty under
the sun, because here Socrates, ; and.
L'lato, and Aristotle, and Demosthenes,

wrote, or chiseled,-or taught, or thun
dered, or sung, yet in wy mind all those
men and their teachings were eclipsed
by Paul and the gospel he preached in
this oity and in your near by city of
Corinth. Yesterday, standing on the old
fortress at Corinth, the Acro-Corinthuav
iut from the ruins at its base arose In
my imagination the old city, just as Paul
law it I have been told that for splen
lor the world beholds no such wonder
to-day as that anoient Corinth standing

the Bible is an indistinct mirror, ana
that its mission shall be finally sus
Dended. I think there may be one Bible'
In Heaven fastened to the thrones Just
as now, in a museum, ;w have a lamp
exhumed from Uercuianeumor JNineven,
and we look at It with great interest,
and say: "How poor a light it must have
given, compared with our modern
Urnr." So I think that this Bible,
which was a lamp to our feet in this
world, may He near the throne of
God, exciting our interests to all eter
nity By the contrast Detween its com'
paratively feeble light and the llluml
nation of Heaven. The Bible, now,
la the scaffolding to the rising temple,
but when the building; is done there will
be no use for the scaffolding. The idea
I shall develop to-day Is, that in this
world our knowledge Is comparatively
dim and unsatisfactory, butnevertheress
is introductory to grander and more
complete vision. This is eminently true
In regard to our view of God. We hear
so much about God that we conclude we
understand Him. He Is represented as
having the tendorness of a father, the
firmness of a judge, the pomp of a king,
and the love of a mother. We bear about
Him. talk about Him, write 'about Him
We lisp His nsme In Infancy, and it
trembles on the tongue of the dying oo
togenarian. We think that we know
verv much about Him. Take the attrib
ute of mercy. Do we understand it?
The Bible blossoms all over with- that
word Mercy. It speaks again and again
of the tender mercies of God; of the sure
mercies; of the great mercies, of the
merer thst endureth forever, of themul'
titude of His merciee. And yflt I know
that the views we have oi thl c be
ing are moat indefinite, t - a.! and
Incomplete. When at di ii th- gates

The Idea of mv texts is lust at true
when applied to God's providence. Who
has not come to some paths in life thor
ougly inexplicable? You say, "What
does this mean? What Is God going to
do with me now? - He tells me that an
things work together for good. This
does not look like It" You continue to
study the dispensation, and after awhile
guess about what God means. "He
means to teach me this. I think He
means to teach me that Perhaps it is
to humble my pride. Perhape.lt Is to
make me feel more dependent. .Per
haps to teach me the uncertainty of
life." ' But, after all, It i only a guess
a looking through the ' glass, damy.
The Bible assures es there shall be a
satisfactory unfolding. "What I do

approaching. He says: "I can not tell
any thing about them. I merely know
that there are a great number.". And
so John, without attempting to count
says: "A great multitude that no man
can number." We are told that Heaven
is a place of happiness, but what do we
know about bappineas? Happiness in
this world is only a half-fledged thing; a
flowery path, with a serpent hissing
across it; a broken pitcher, from which
the water has dropped before we oould

An Interesting anecdote of Berryer, the
the great Frenoh lawyer, recently made
public for the first time: Shortly after the
war ot 1870 the Duke ot Brunswick, whe
VlA fiwinnntlv amnloved Borrver in im
portant oases, sent him a request that
he should defend a lult brought against
the Duke by his daughter, whom be had
abandoned because she had aoiurea
Protestantism. Fearful lest Berryer
mleht not like the case, he added to the
papers a retalnorof 60,000 francs. Short
ly afterwards he received the following
letter: "Monselgnenr: li l aeienaeu
