Such is topic for Christian En
deavor societies of this week. It
is of special interest to all. The
King was the Xerxes who invad
ed Greece. The one who sat on
tho rocky promontory of Salamis
??while ships by thousands lay
below and men in natioas?all
were his." He ruled ove# one
hundred and twenty-seven States.
It is reported that when he gath
ered his arsny for tho invasion of
Greece they wore numbered by
being driven into pens that wero
supposed to hold ten thousand
men each. After a drunken feast
of one hundred and ninety-one
days in the midst of the palace
when the kingwas drunk, begins
the story. Vashti the Queen de
serves the respect of all women
for she lost a kingdom in defense
of tho personal rights of woman.
It is needless to rehearse the
story of the obedience of Esther
to her foster father, the cruel
hate of Haroan, the lofty dignity
of Mordeeai, the intense agony
and prayer of Israel in the hour
of danger, t Tho lofty heroism,
the patriotism, tho love of church
is manifested when the slave girl,
now queen said, "I will go in
unto tho kins, which is not ac
cording to the law, and if I per
ish. I perish."
Opportunities for good, for
heroic conduct, for love of coun
try occur every day. It takes as
much heroism for a boy to refuse
a drink of whiskey, a choice
cigar, to remain at homeatniglit,
to wc-fir Jyi.rm' clothes, coarse
shoes, perform bodily labor, to
be obedient to parents, as it did
for Esther to enter the royal
chamber unbidden. Opportuni
ties to go to church, to do church
work, to speak and pray in pub
lic and private are neglected on
every hand. God's work will be
done, "deliverance will arise but
thou and thy father's house shall
be destroyed" if opportunities
are neglected.
How shall we know our oppor
tunity ? Simply by doing the
duty that lies next to us without
a thought, whether it is great or
humble. Had H. E. Clarke neg
lected the simple duty that was
next to him whether there would
ever have been Christian Endea
vor society or not, cannot be
told, but the work would have
been done in some form but who
would have heard of Father
Clarke. Churches are dying all
over the land because of neglect
ed opportunities. Opportunities
never return. The opportunity
you have to work as an Endeavor
er on Sunday neglected will be
gone for ever; improved leads
on to greater opportunities.
