In another piirtof the church sat, Sabbath

who was a grrat society lea'ler. i-?h?s went
to church because, that was a respectable

she lived it was hardly respectable not to go.

her family worldly. She had at her nous??
the fine*t Rene, ins that were ever dan-"I.

and though she attended church she never

Oh, ye who are wasting your breath, an

"But," says some one, "that is a beautifu
I theory, yet it does not work in my case, foi
lamina cloud of trouble, or a clou 1 o
| sickness, or a cloud of persecution, or i
' cloud of poverty, or a cloud of bereavement
i or a cloud of perplexity." How glad I an
, that you told me that. That is exactly th<
i place to which my text refers. It was fron
? a cloud that God answered Israel?the clou
over the chasm cut through tho R?d Sea
: the cloud that was light t?> th-? Israelites an!
darkness to the Egyptiaus. It ?vas from i
: cloud, a tremendous cloud, that God tnadi

things you nave not understooi about m?r

and you could weigh it, it would not w.-igli
any heavier thau the average. They hav.

At nine o'clock Wednesday morning, June

I expect to sail for Liverpool,to bo gone un?

ing the Gospel in England, "Scotland,Ireland

I can gather for the kingdom of God. Those
countries have for many years belong? 1 to

But who Is sufficient for the work I under?
take? i ?call upon you who have long been
my coadjutors to go into the secret place of
the Almighty, and every day ?rom now
until my work is don? on thoTither side of
the sea, ta have me in your prayers. In
proportion to the intensity and continuance
and faith of the prayers, yours and mine,
will be the results. If you remember me in
the devotional circle, th.t will be well, but
what I most want is your importuning,
your wrestling supple-ation in the ?ecret
place of thunder.
God antl you alone ine.y make me the
humble instrumentality in the redemption
of thousands of souls. I shall prea-di in
churches in chapels and in the fields. I will
make it a campaign for God anil eternity,
and I hope to get during this absence a
baptism of power that will make me of
more servico to you when I return than I
ever yet have been. For, brethren and
sisters in Christ, our opportunity for
usefulness will goon be gone, and wo ?hall
have our faces uplifted to the throne of judg?
ment, before which we must give account.
That day there will ba n ? secret place of
thunder, for all the thin lera will be out.
There will be the thunder of the tumbling
rocks. There will be the thunder of the
bursting wave?. There will be the
thunder of the descending chariots. There
will be the thunder of the parting heavens.
Boom ! Boom !
But all that dim and uproar and caash
will tind at unafTrighted, an I will leave
ii? lin.li.-inayed if we have made Christ
our confidence, and as after an August
shower, when the whole heavens have
been nn unlimherad battery cannonad?
ing th?? earth, the fields are more green,
and the sunrise is the more radiant, and
the waters are more opaline, so the
thunders of the last day will make the
trees of life appear more emerald, an 1
the carbuncle of the wall more crimson, and
the sapphire seas the more shimmering, and
the sunrise of eternal gladness the more em?
purpled. The thunders of dissolving nature
will be followed by a celestial psalmody tho
sound of which St. John on Patmo.-t de?
scribed, when he said, "I heard a voie? like
the voice ol mighty thundering!" Amen!
