G0NFL1GTOF THE HEART ThsFierce Strangle Ikick TUts PUei^tn Erery lu's Breast A MIRROR OF OUR LIVES Rev.E. B. Howell'* Eloquent Dle-^oourt* at the Mountain^View Church Lest Might, Butte,Sept in.^The following aermon^wet preached by Rev. E. B. Howell at toe^Mountain View M. K. church to-night to a^large congregation: It-mans.Ml., M ^For I delli'lit In the law^ef ^^^Ml after the inward man; but I see a differ^^ent law in my members wamnK against the law^of my miuU. l'auli* hero depicting the fierce inter^^nal conflict which takes place in every^human heart, and conatitutea tbo iragedy^of existence. If there are inspired mo^^menta in life when man feels his kinship^to God, there are also other momenta in^which he ta ready to believe be is pos-^aciaed by a deril incarnate. ^Men,^ says^Carlyle, ^are not dciui-gods, but a sort of^Uod-di-vil, Tery imperfect characters, in^^deed. liman could only sustain bia life on tho^high level of his best moments, to be liv^^ing would indeed be aublirac. At rare^intervals wo ascend into our loftiest ex^^periences, and there life ia transligured^before ua. It may he by virtue of a heroic^or self-sacrificing deed, or through a no^^ble resolve which is at last to rectify and^^lovate our souls, and while wo tarry in^this lolty region, the l.abiliaments of the^earth y state become white and glisten^^ing. Who has not felt such moments as^these, and who has not, liko Peter, de^^sired to build tabernacles there mid^uhide^ But we deacend again to tbo^everyday plane of life, and sooner or later^the demon of our lower nature assert*^his presence. Jtis because I believe that Paul is here^describing a universal human expem-ne- -,^and hns pointed out the true and only^remedy that 1 have chose this passage,^for my text. The world is full of the sad^evidencea of thia law of evil at work in^the hearts of those who would do good.^The knowledge of good is not sufficient^to overrule it. Knowledge not full and^complete is often swept into the general^run of manhood under the sway of evil.^No, kuowledgo cannot save a mail.^Neither can wealth, nor genius, nor good^intentions afford security to a man when^evil is present with him. Mostof you have probably read the^tragic story of ^Ur. Jekyll and Mr.^Hyiie.^ They were not two men, but^dilfisent phaaea of the same men. Ur.^Jekyll was a man kind and benevolent,^honorable and just, highly esteemed by^all who knew him. In bis investigations^into the secrets of Ins labratory he dis^^covered an elixer which could ia a mo^^ment separate all that was evil in htm^apart by itself. At that moment Ur.^Jekyll ceased to be and Mr. Hyde, a dim'^uiuitive, devil-faced man, came into be^^ing. Alter he bad given full vont to the^, v11 in him the change back again to Dr.^Jekyll occurred. At tlrst he thus trans^^formed himself as a sort of experiment,^but tho habit grew upon bim. Pcriode^caly. with increasing frequency, Dr^Jekyll would mysteriously disappear aud^then Mr. Hyde, a devil incarnate, would^slink ub^^ it the streets. At last Mr.^Hyt'e commits an atrocious mur^^der and Dr. Jekyll resolves that^ho will never more touch the^dangcriua dri.g,but thejhabit hassogro*n^upon him mat lie caiiuot let it alone. At^la - t he it transformed into Mr. Hyde,with^out the use of the drug en 1 againat his^will, aud in thia state he Uually dies. '1bis atoty of Mr. Stevenson's is fiction.^Lut it contains a profound truth. There^is many a Dr. Jekyll who ieela within^bim the possibilities of a Mr. Hyde. He^has a dual nature, between the high- r^and lower parts of which there is an ir^^repressible conflict. It is the old conflict^iietwcen ^tiie law of my mind^ and ^the^law in my monikers,^ which Paul depicts^s ^ vividly in th.s seventh chapter of lio-^matis. Thisinternal conflict works out many a^sad result in life. In conversation re^c nt y with a gentleman who lived in^Washington many years and knows tho^innermost workings of our national gov^eminent, 1 asked him why a certain well^and favorably known congressman, who^has a record of many years honorable^service in both houses of congress, is^never suggested for the presidency while^other and much more obscure men are^mentioned. His reply was that ha bad^periodic sprees of drinking. He would^disappear and he gone several days and^would come back haggard and hollow-^eyed to his seat in congress. No ques^^tions are asked and no remarks are^made, for everybody in Washington^knows his failing, but no one who knowa^him suggests him tor the presidency. litisinconsistency iu men's Uvea, this^ebb and flow between good and evil iathe^outworking of an inner antagonism. In^many a aoul the issue of thia life and^death conflict, for such it is, become* a^cause of the most intense anxiety. What^causoa the father's hair to turn gray so^fast, and the mother's face to grow sad^and concernedT It is because in tiie^rapidly maturing life of their sou the^i vi 1 spirit ia gaining rule. What causes^the growing look of auxiety in tbo eyes^of the wife where once was only con^tiding love. It is because, abo feara she^hardly dares to think, that the hus^^band she loves is coming increasingly^under the away of evil. Aud so^the list may be prolonged indefinitely^of these everyday tragedies of life. It ia^enough to wring one's heart to see them^And then think of all the talents that arc^burled, of all tho budding hopes that are^blighted, and of all the disease and mis^^ery and dwarfing which triumphant evil^drasa heartlessly in its train. Well would^Paul exclaim, ^O wretched man that^am; who shah deliver me out of the body^of thia death^ Godhelp us in auch a contest I The atv^nalb of history are lull of iho slain. We^see many a man about us waging the un^^ qua I contest against ttc evil within hi^own breast. God pity them. Their fellow'^man who has the milk of human kind^^ness In his breast will pity them. I^cannot understand tho anirit of tin- man^who throws a t^nipia I ^n In the way^of such n man. It is doubtlesa true tha^occasions of stumbling must come. It i^doubtless true that when there is money^in tho business that thousands will be^found ready to embark in it. But on tb^^author.ty of our Lord, It were well for^such a otic If a millstone were banged^ah..ut his neck and he were thrown into^the sea rather than tbat he should cause^one of these little oner to stumble. N^absolution or ecclesiastical indulgence^cm take away the stigma of that curse^i know no reason why it is not as t^-rrib|i^to-day as when first uttered by the Divm^Teacher. Youi. lie nib r the brutal pri ^ light^that occurred near Butte a year ago lust^H. ^ ember, when one man w.ia pouudc.^to death. Aft^r he had nceired his deatl^blow and was helpless, w hen all the flgi^was gone out of him, and when his col^^111 urn ought to have appealed to th.^common humanity of ^^.-ry one present^the dying mau was held up through ai roundsonly to be knocked down repeat^^edly. So we see men who through some^vice have received a moral death blow,^and yet (lire^ sr I those who holster them^up and encourage them in the way of^temptation till the aoul light which God^has given, like a brief candle, goes out in^utter darkness. Ifthis conflict between good and evil^must needs rage, for myself I want to be^an ally on the aide of tne good, and not^an abettor of evil. I will neither sur^^render to the evil in my own heart nor^w^li I stand by neutral in tha contest^against evti which is going on around me. Youremember tbe story of Laoroon^and tbe serpents, which came up out of^tbe deep and entwined him and bis two^aona in their deadly embrace. We may^see an allegory in this of hum.in life.^Vices have come into many a lite, like^serpents from tho deep, and have en-^wined tbe aoul in their embraco. The^un happy countenance reflects hut a^small part of ihe inner misery. The^trusted employe is haunted by a night^^mare of money lost winch was not^his own. The man who startod out in life^happy iu the possession of innocence,^honor and clear-eyed self-restraint, from^be murky atmosphere of his middle life^looks back upon them as upon a fair^dream, and from bis innocent heart he is^reaily to cry nut I ke Paul, ^U wretched^mnu that I am! Now,as I have said before, this more^than anything elsocousiitiues the tragedy^of human existence. Wo may philoso^^phise as wn will about the origin of evil,^we may ililTcr as to the means tor its cure,^but thia irrepressible conflict iietweeu^good and evil surrounds us and confronts^ua as an awful fact. We may say with^some theologians tbat evil has conn- into^t io world through a ^fall,^ or with Henry^Ward Herein r wo may believo tbnt the^only tall haa been a ^tall upwards,^ aud^hat mankind are gradually battling their^way up and out of evil. The tu-t confronts^us, however, the battle with evil is on. Iu^eholora epidemic people do not waste^their time trying to decide whether the^cholera microbe is round or long. It is^an immaterial matter to the man who has^the disease. Mankind are ufnictcd with^the contagion of sin. It is ail immaterial^matter whether that sin was inherited^Irom Adam or not. Hie all important^question is, how shall it he cured. Ishall then assume as an axiomatic^truth, admitted hy all that there is in^man a God-iiko nature to which the law^of God appeals, and ill which it finds its^sanction ; and that there is also a lower^iiatur.; in conflict with the higher, ill^which evil finds response, and which^may, anil in many cases does, grow to^man's destruction. If wo are wise we^will not shut our eyes to these dual and^opposite functions of our own nature. Itis a physiological law that tha or. an^which is used de veh ^pes aud grows strong,^while tbe one which is unused atropine,^and dually disappears. This is also true^in the soul life. The divine nature in^man on tbe one side und his evil nature^on the other, each is developed at tho ex^pense of the other. The one which is^neglected will lose strength and atrophy.^All the phenomena of human experience^confirm this truth. Keepthy heart with all diligence,^^aays the wise king, ^for out of it are the^issues of life.^ Men are constantly look^^ing out upon life and aaying, ^Lo hero^^or ^Lo there^ in tbe endeavor to discover^tbe great opportunity which ia to glorify^their careers. But iu reality the conflict^which ia to decide their destiny is the^eternally waging con II ct between good^and evil, between tbe bestial and the^God-like, which must be fought out upon^tho area of their owu souls. Webase our moral classification of^men upon their attitudo toward this race^conflict. Those who give way to evil we^call weak men. If the yielding is willful^we call them wicked men. J hose who^join forces with evil humanity instinct^^ively regards as Its foes. On the other^hand those who show their superiority to^temptation, and especially those who^prove themselves helpful to their strug'^gling brothers, humanity unites in call^ug g^.od men. Thia classification can^never bo made with mathematical pre^cision, but that it is made and tbat it cor^responds to a real distinction umong^men, is one of the most patent facta iu^the world. HenryIV. before the battle of Ivry ad^dressed his troops as follows: ^My^children, if you lose sight of your color.-,^rally to my white plume^you will always^llnu it in the path to honor and glory.^^Aud inspired by his impetuous valor, nis^army followed him to victory. In tho din^of this world conflict with evil, humanity^are always turning to tbe white plumes of^their bravest, most steadfast, largest'^hearted leaders. Young man, you can^aspire to no higher lienor than to be one^of those wbile-pluined heroes. Thelonger 1 live the more firmly I am^convinced that the greatest opportunities^of every man's life are moral ones, and^that those who achieve the highest suc^^cess in every honorable calling are those^who stand the test of great moral crises.^When Jesus told his disciples to seek tlrst^tbe kingdom of God and bis righteous^^ness, it was not because he had a con^^tempt for tha world in which God haa^placed us. It was not that hi* followers^might be handicapped in tbe honorable^pursuits of life, and so kept poor and^bumble. It was because in thia way.^other things being equal, they wouli^achieve the largest and best success^Such a choice, however, ri quires faith^and real strength of character. HereIs a boy that aspires to he a great^railroad manager. One friend perhaps^advise* him to go on to tho railroad as a^tram boy, but his wisest friend will send^bim away from the railroad to some^school where he will receive a thorougl^training. It requires lailii to seek inc^goal ot bis ambition through an inter^^mediate process which seems to take bun^away from it. Tho lad w ho uapires to lie^a great journalist can hotter spend his^early year* thau by serving as a printer's^devil, tbougb it will require faith for him^to put in his lime uationtly in the most^profltatilo way. Tha young lady whose^ambition is to he a great pianist should^carefully avoid drumming on a piano^without an instructor. J in re is a tech'^tuque essential to the highest^success which she cannot (lis.^coverherselfnud Which mustlie ncquircd from the start. The^one who will not believe there 1* such^technique because she cunnot discover^where it comes in will certainly fail of^success. Now the teachings of Christ are t^leach us. if I m iv use the expression, th^true technique of euribly life. To follow^tie in oftentimes seems like turning away^from success, so that it requ.res faith a*^well as courage. It ia a losing of the life^in order to Und it. This w si success^which Christ promises is not im^mediate aud transitory, hut ultimate and^abiding. Thisbeing the ease, we need not fear^to enlist on the side of C'tir.sl in tie^great world-contest with sin. If we would^be on the winning side we must enlist^with Him, for tho went of tlii^ contest la^absolutely certain. It may nquire faith, IImay require courage, it may r^ quire^steadfastness and sacrifice, hut the satis^^faction of be ng on the right aud vietori^ous side is worth all it costs.

'^Lastly, there is a further truth in this^i^ Vs-uth chapter of Roman*, wh ch is the^crowning one, and which to leave out^would be like leaving out um h ^art of the subject.The work of Christ was not to^condemn the world, but to save the^world. His mission was to save man^from their sins. The world ia already^under condemnation. Even a heathen^man feels the sense of his guilt. To fur^^ther convince men of their sinfulness^without effenng them a way of escaiic^therefore is only to increase their iinha:s-^pineaa. Cbriat did not do this. With the^call to repentance he promised a now^life, a life born from above, a life which^be repeatedly called life eternal. In tbe^birth and growth of thia n w liie bia fol^^lowers were to Und their triumph^over sin. If ho raised the^idaal of goodncaa far above previous^ethical standards, far indeed above^practical human realixition, it is also^true that hy means ot a new spiritual life^be afforded greater helpfulness in reach^^ing mat ideal than had been available^before. Now,the moral drawn by Paul In this^seventh chapter of Romans is the vietop-^gained over sin through tho new life in^Christ. In describing his inner conflict^sithsin he is not elescrihing In, pre seni^state, hut his former one under the Jew^^ish law. The law told him what be ought^to do, but gave him no help la the doing^of iu It was a ^law of bia mind; '^but theie was a lower and oi^-^posite ^law in his members,^ aud^alternating betwi-en the two he was driven^back and forth without rest and without^peace, until he cries out, ^O wretched^man that I am; who shall deliver mo out^of the body of this death.^ And then as^If waking cut of u I orrib'e nightmare of^the paat, with thanklulnesa be exclaims,^^1 thank tied through Jetu* Christ our^Lord.^ And a little furthe r on he says, 1he law of Ihe sn.ru of life iu Christ^Jesus made ine free from the law of ein^und of death.^ H.s tantalising labors un^^der the law are over; at last he has ^peace^with tiod through our Lord Jesus Cbriat.''^Has this teaching utiy nractlcul import^^ance at the present dav ^ Ah, yesl Never,^Iterhapa, iliu the- worlel neeel it more.

Howell of the O'ongregutional church.^Following is a brief outline of what tbe^reverend gentleman said: For hia test^he announced: John, ul, 22. ^What is^that to thee T Follow thou Me.

Sucha state is not a hope-less one, but^it is a critical one. A man may^emerge from it a stronger and^bettor man, or be may settle^down Into a permanent state of negot n-^tion, become a cynic and misanthrope^and thus be lost to all the better uses of^tbo world. Good men and great men are^those who are poaitive, not negative.^They are men of faith, not doubters.^They aro men wdio believe that ^life is^real and life is earnest,^ and that human^nature while not angel nature ia not^wholly bud. Thereis one cure.for this mental chaos^and that is in positives forward action.^Uut the weak elialioartencJ brother, from^th^ thick gloom of his trouble and doubt,^says, ^Why should 1 strive longer.
