A Plea for Aged Minister*.
The Rev. N. H. Whittlesey, D. D. of
New Haven, Conn., Secretary of the
Committee of the National Council of
Ministerial Relief for the Congregation
al churches, spoke last Sunday morning,
in the Congregational church, in this
city. His text was Philippians, IV :10—
•'But I rejoiced in tbe Lord greatly that
now at the last your care of me hatb
nourished again wherein ye were also
careful, but ye lacked opportunity.'
From this sentence, he said, taken from
St. Paul's letter, we may gather two or
three important lessons. First, Christian
people mean to be kind when they think
of it. Twelve years earlier Paul bad
founded this, the first Christian church
upon the heathen continent of Europe.
During the past five years he had been
in prison. At length these early con
verts bethought themselves about their
old missionary, aged, in prison and in
want. Their former affection blossomed
afresh. They made up a bountiful min
isterial relief contribution, and, as sec"
retaries had not yet been invented, nor
express companies, they sent one of
their own number, Epaphrodites, hun
dreds of miles away oif to Rome to car
ry it. On the arrival of their messenger
and their giftB Paul wrote them this
beautiful letter of acknowledgment.
Just so to-day, if the facts about the
needs of God's aged ministers can be
made known and a business-like way of
caring for them can be devised, Christ
ian people will respond.
Second, the apparent benefactors are
often tbe real beneficiaries, and vice
versa. Generous as these good Philip
pians bad been, for the Gospel and its
Inspiring motives and gluriouA hopes,
a thouwad-fold mote
indebted to him than he
could have been
them. Isn't it always so when we
try to strike a balance between temporal
and spiritual benefits conferred and re
ceived? Fifty-five years ago a set of
young fellowB from Andover, Massachu
setts, came by stage, canal, lake and
farmers' wagons to the territory of Iowa.
That was in 1843, three years before
Iowa was admitted to the Union. Their
ambition was "If each of us, by his life
work, can plant one strong church, and
if all, joining hands, can establish a
Christian college, will not that be a life
work worth achieving?" They Invested
their lives there. Of the three survivors
to-day, two are
still living in Iowa. And
what have they lived to see? Three
hundred Congregational churches in
Iowa: two colleges and several acade
mies under our care. At the
croBs roads,
two miles apart, the little White school
houBe, giving Iowa the lowest percent
age of illiteracy of any State in the
Union. They have been leaders in all
battles for liberty, union, temperance
and good morals, often at great sacri
flee, pecuniary and other. Suppose these
survivors or the surviving widows of
others who have been so self-sacrificing
that they have not made sufficient finan
cial provision for their own declining
years, would a handsome pension from
the people of Iowa be charity Instant
ly your sense of justice replies, no! It
would be only a little interest on the
rare money value of their services in
Iowa. For there Is not an acre of
ground in her 99 counties, nor a city lot,
nor a mile of railroad, nor an Iowa
mortgage owned in New England, that
will not sell for more in cash tomorrow
than It would have represented bad it
not been for the labors of those pioneers
in helping to transform that billowy,
untrodden prairie into the Massachu
setts of the west.
It is natural that my favorite Illustra
tion should be the Iowa band, for my
first happy pastorate of twelve years,
when I went out from my Connecticut
home and from Yale College and Semi
nary, was at Creston, Iowa, and I can
testify personally and affectionately to
the worth and the work of these heroes
and heroines.
In a western city wbere I Bpoke on
this subject, I was entertained in the
house of a leading, business man. The
next morning before I left he said,
''There is one thing that I want you to
put into your address and never leave
it out. Tell the people that you don't
come to ask for charity, but to give
them a chance to pay these honored
veteran officers of the Lord's army a
justly earned little pension." This is a
business man's notion, and I pass it
along to you juBt as he gave it to me.
To my mind it was all the more Impres
sive from the fact that he backed up
his opinion with his check for $100
his brother added $25, and his son 825,
and before I could get out of that hos
pitable home, his good wife came to me
with one of my subscription cards filled
out in her own name for $25, more,
making $176 from that one family cir
cle in support of that business man's
opinion that I haven't left the, blessed
work of the pastorate to go up and
down the country begging for anything
or anybody, but that this is a work not
so much of charity
of justice and
kindly fair dealing.
The third lesson from the story is that,
even when Christian people are disposed
to be just and generous, they are some
times so tardy about it as to amount to
positive cruelty. Even tbe good, kind
church at Phllippi had let its old minis
ter lie In prison and In poverty for five
long, weary years before it occurred to
them to look him up and minister to
his necessities.
The Congregational churches of the
United States have been slow to recog
nize the pressing needs and just claims
of their aged ministers and missionaries
But now they are beginning to do so.
In tbe old and strong Congregational
states, state boards of ministerial aid
assist aged ministers and their widows
within their own bounds. But many,
on account of frequent changes of pas
torate, fall through between the rule of
these societies. Returned foreigp mis
sionaries ought to be provided for, and
then there are the heroes and heroines
from the vast home missionary fields of
the far west and south, where the work
is hardest and the salaries smallest, and
no State societies exist.
Therefore our National Congregation
al Council has asked the churches to es
tablish a permanent ministerial relief
fund, the interest of which may be dis
tributed annually in little pensions, ir
respective of State lineB. From the
original bequeBt of $10000 the fund has
been built up since 1889 to over $113,000.
From helping six persons or families we
are now helping fifty-three.
Let me give you three illustrations of
our work. A minister who had done
service for thirty-five years from Wis
consin through Iowa, Minnesota and
Nebraska to Colorado,
called to a
church in Vermont, where be served
two years then a year in Massachusetts
then a few weeks in Connecticut where
his health broke down completely. He
did not come within the rules of any
State society. So on application of the
Connecticut society, our national fund
helped him for two years, a total of $350.
By this small outlay, be was enabled to
return west, where he recovered his
health and for seven years served a
group of home missionary churches
with marked success.
A widow with five little children,
from the foreign field, is taking in sew~
ing, and with the little earnings of the
oldest one, is doing ber best to support
and educate them. On application from
the Massachusetts board of ministerial
aid, we are sending her $150 annually
for a few years until the children are
through school.
An aged couple in Kansas, after life
long pioneer home missionary service,
were expecting the sheriff one morning
to come into their poor little home and
foreolose the mortgage on it for $150.
Instead, there came a neighbor with $75
which he bad raised and $75 which we
had furnished, and paid off the mort
