At lost die guve way mid began: ? V.ars ago, when 1 was a girl, things were so difterent trotn oor way of living now that 1 fear my story will seem improbable to you 1 lived iu a small weBtern town where my lather hada tract ol land altuust as large as this entire village. It was a lonelv place foi ynung people, but frequent visit? from them relieved the dreariness somewhat. U'e had plenty t?i tiding and driving, ho.?ever, as *ell as an occasional ilance. We really bad little time to mope. ?Still, it was ,t sad change when my sister married ami went to live 110 miles away. It seemed as re mote as if she bad crossed the ocean; but the glorious anticipa liouot visiting her kept mein a fever of excitemeut for a whole ? eat. During this time I had met Paul Foster ruin grandfather) and become entaa-etl tu him, and l> was ananged that he should ac company tin father and inyaell on die journey, 'S'age OOsabes were the only i!ton vet onces ibeo, eut there was in enchantment about travel then that no amount of luxury in a palace car cm equal now. ?Tbesecond day, |aal as ?e were Starting, a young man came up and huniedl? whispcicd to Siins, the driver.

Two stood at the horses heads,two quickly disarmed the drlrer and tbe men on toe ot the coach, while two others at the same instant threw open the door and with leveled pistola ordered na to step oat. Two elderly ladies, a middle aged one, an old gentleman and myself oneyed aa quickly aa we could, I assure you. 1 trembled bo that I could hardly stand, aud was I almost tailing, when suddenly one of the highwaymen pushed other out of the way, exclaimii ?A Hebe. i>\ .love ?'and with bi a bow as few had ever given i he took my hand and helped i down. 'To tell the truth, I knew ve litile of what took place around i after that. 1 saw my high way m g \e some orders to hi? men.

Those are not thi stalwart men who are asleep on th, shaded lawn, but those who are pound? ing amid tho furnace?. I do not know of any other way of getting a thorough Christiun character. I will show yon a picture. Her?) are a father mid a mother 80 or 8? years of age, their family around thiiii It is Sabbath morning. They have prayers. They hear the children's lattshisin. Thoy hav? prayera every day of the week. They aro in humble cir? cumstances, but after awhile the wheel of fortune turns up, and the man get, his f-.'O.OOO. Now he has prayers on Sabbath and everyday of the week, but he has dropped the catechism. The What 1 of fortune turns up again, and he gets his 8*0,000. Now he ha? prayer? ?ni Sabbath morning alone. The wheel uf fortune keeps turning up, and he ha* ?Jiio.ooo, and now he has prayers on Sabbath morning when he feels like it and there is no company. The wheel of 1 fortune keep? on turning np, and he has i his 8-100,000 and no prayers at all. Four leaf clover in a ??store field Is not so rare as family prayers in the honae* of people who have more than $300,000. Hut now the wheel of fortune turn* down, and the man lose? 8200,000 ont of the 11100,000. Now on Sabbath morn? ing he is on a stepladder looking for a liible under the old newspaper? on the bookcase. He is going to have prayera. i His affair* are more and more compli? cated, and after awhile crash goes hi* last dollar. _N?rw he has jirayers ererv morning, and he "bears his "grandchil? dren the catechism. Prosperity took him away from God; adversity drove him back to Cod. Hot climate to make the coral ; hot und scalding tronble to make the jewels of gnu e iu tbe sonl. We all hate trouble, and yet it does a great deal for us. You have beard per? haps of that painter who wished to get au expression of great distress for his canvas aud who had his servant lash a man fast and put him to great torture, and then the artist caught tbe look on the victim's face and immediately trau? ferretl it to tin- canvas. Then he aaid to tho servant, "More torture, " and under more torture there was a more thorough expression of pain, aud the artist said: "Stop there. Wait till I catch that ex? pression. There! Now I have it upon th?; canvas. Let loose tho victim. I have a work that will last forever." "Oh," yon say, "be was an inhuman painter!" No doubt about it. Trouble is cruel aud inhuman, but he is a great painter, and ont of onr tears and blood on hi* palette he makes colors that never die. Oh, that it might be a picture of Christian fortitude, of shining hopel Development. On tbe day I was licensed to preach the gospel an old Christian man took my band and said, "My son, wben yoa get in a tight corner on Saturday night without auy sermon send for rufe, and 1 will preach for you. " Well, it was s grea^encpnrap ???it to be backed up by such tagcoaT o?d minister, and it was not long beforo 1 got into a tight comer on Saturday night without any sermon, and I seut for tbe old minister, and b* came and preached, and it was the last sermon bo ever preached. All the tears I cried at his funeral coold not expresa my affection for that man, who was willing to help me out of a tight comer. Ah, my Mends, that is what we all want?somebody to help us out of a tight corner. You are in one now. How do I know it? I am used to judging of human couiit'iian.SB, aud I s>fe beyond the smOe and beyond tho courageous look with which you hide your feeling* from others. 1 know you are in a tight BOSner. What to dof Do as I did when I sent for old Dr. Scott. Do better than I did?send for the Lord God of Daniel and of Joshua and of every other man who got into a tight corner. "Oh," saya some one, "why cannot God develop mo through prosperity iustead of through adversity.-'' I will answer your question by asking another. Why doea not God dyo our northern and temper? ate seas with coral? You say, "The wa? ter is not hot snoogha'1 There! In an? swering my question you have answered your own. Hot climate for richest spec? imens of coral, lut trouble for the jew? els of the sail. Tin? coral fishers going out from Torre di IGn ceo sever brought ashore inch tine q ? . BIS brought outof tho scalding surge-of misfortune. 1 look down into the tropical sea, and there is sometbiug that looks like blood, and 1 say, "Has there been a great bat? tle down there''' S-fluing bluod scat? tered all up an l il ?.m the reefs It is the blood of tbe coral, and it make? me think of those who coma out of groat tribulation ami have their robes washed white in the blood of the Lamb, lint these gem* of earth are nothing to th? gem? of heaven. "No mention shall be made of coral. " Again, I take your hand, and we walk on through this garden of the sea and look more particularly than we did at tho beauty of the coral. The poets have, all been fascinated with it One of them wrote: There, with a br??d and entry motion. The fan coral ?weep? through th? clear dca-ap BBB, And tho jellow and wsrlet tuft? of th? ooaaaa Are beut like aatn un the upland lea? One specimen of coral is culled th* dendrophilia, because it is like a tree; another is called tho astrars, because it is like a star; another is called the brain coral, because it is like tbe convo? lutions of the human brain; another is called fan coral, la-cause it is like th* instrument with which you cool your? self on a hot day; another ipeciinen is called the organ pipe coral, because it resembles tho king of musical ln?tru aeonta All the flowers and all the shrubs in the gardens of the land have their correspondencies in thia garden of the sea. Corallum ! It is a synonym for beauty. And yet there ia no beauty ia the coral compared with onr religion. It gives physiognomic beauty. It docs not change the feature? ; it doea not givo features with which the person was not originally endowed, but it acts behind tho features of the homeliest person a heaven that ahines clear through. So that often, on first ac? quaintance, you said of a man, "He Is tho homeliest person I ever saw," when, after you came to understand him and his nobility of *onl shining through hi* countenance, you said, "He 1* the love? liest person I ever saw." No one ever had a homely Christian mother What? ever the world may have thought of her there were two who thought well?your father, who had admired her for 80 ?car?, and you. over whom ?he bent with so many tender ministrations When yon think of the angel* of God, and your mother among them, ?he out ahinca them all < )h, that our young peo? ple could understand that there ia noth? ing that bo much beautifies the humaa countenance as the religion of Jesu* Christ! It make? everything beautiful. Trouble beautiful. Sickness beautiful. Disappointment l.-autifuL Everything beautiful. Near my early home there was s place called tbe Two Bridgea These bridgea leaped the two stream?. Well, my friends, tho religion of Jeans Christ is two bridgea It bridges all the past It arches and overspans all the future. It makes the dying pillow tbe landing place of angels fresh from glory. It turns the sepulcli?*- into a Maytime or? chard. It catches up the dyiug into full orchestra Corallurnl And yet that doe* not express the beanty. "No mention shall be made of coraL " Work That Kadarajaa. I take your hand again and walk a | little farther on in this garden of the I aea, and I notice the durability of the ? work of the coral. Montgomery apeak* of it He says "Frail were their forma, ephemeral their lives, their masonry imperishable " Rhitopod* are insect* so small they are invisible, and yet tbey built the Apennines and they planted for their own monument the cordilleras It takes 18?.000,000 of tbem to make one grain.
