Moor.-, of the Presbyter- : ian church, preached last ni;htfrooi thet; xt, "'This is the victory itat over comes the world, even your faith." I John V:4. To many people faith means nothing' it is toe strongest power in the world. Tfce way to overcome evil is by faith; the way to enter heaven ia by :'aith. Some or.e has snid the only ship ibat sails from here t i heaven ia faith. it is the cement of goad soc.al order. The lack of faith is the t au.e ot all our financial panics. Columbus discovered Am rica oy faith; the Pil- irim Fathers sailtd hither by faiih; Galileo, Kepler, Tarrady, dxd their ii-eit work bv faith. Jbalth gu.ded the reformers .Luther, Wicliffe, Knox. 1 he cotsicrated b.ood of jester day a men of faith ii seen in the civilization of today. The first threads of every nag of Urerty were woven oy men or fai.b. "Without faith it is impossible to pltase God." Jesus bjged men to bave faith in God. "Tola is tne victo ry that overcomes tha world even your faith." Faith, what is it? It is very simple. Always and everywhere it is confidence in the invisible, "it is," as Matthew Arnold says, "holding on to the un seen." 1 have 1 ait n in your honesty and love, bat I cannot tee honesty or love. I cannot measure it with a yard stick or weigh it in scales; what J have faith in is invisible, Jet business men lose faith in the government, or hut- bands and wives lose laitn in each other, and what disastrous results! Cultivate the friendship of some lovely character here on earth and you wiU Unci a new life mounting within you overcumiog the old life, Now trans fer that faith and conhdeaue to God, to Jesus the Saviour and see a mightier transformation. Shift th'- centre of your life from the seen to tae uneejn and you become a believer. Why do men fall and lie prostrate under sin? Becausa they live not at an high alti tude. They do not "euaure as seeing him who is io visible." They build too close to the ground. Noonewno does cot live in the invisible realm, wnodots not lay hold 014 the ucseen can over come bis lower natuce. 1 call vou to youreelves-tonifirht. .1 hold out to you the life of victory. In a 1 reforms it has been omnipotent. In service to ethers fauh has ste. red the ay. In the sickerueses of life when boLes ache, breathintr is painful, mouth is feverpari'h d, faith sings its song of hope and courage. 'G;jod-by" said a sick man to me once. "I said I will be away only a week." ?'Yes," said he. "but 1 shall be in heaven when you re turn and there X shall 8 -e my dear ones.' When I returned he had gone to the heavenly nomeste- d amooir the h avenly t-eetops. This is the victory that overcomes the world, even your aith. in nree, sorrows, faith gives victory. When tht re is silence in the hallway silence at the piano, no more warm good morning k'ss it sits and sings in undertone, "It is better fur ther on." Oh the cries of widowhc d and orphanage! Hvre again faith ooens the old book and reads thu promise, and angel voices sing all , down the sky '-not dead but alive! forever-more." Faith simple faith in .lets 11 9 as Saviour bas saved millions and opened t- them anw life of vic'ory here and brought heaven at last. This is the vict ry tat overcomes, amazes, dumfounds the world even your faith." I call you to this life of faith. By it there is no sin you cannot overcome, no evil habit yu cannot break. L?t any soul get homesick for God and God is homesick for thati-oal. Come, come! It may cost a struggle but it will give you victory over sin here and heaven at last. Saul's Progress and Conversion. R-v. W. O. Miliican preached in t;e Ba-yist churcn lastr venlng on th p-ogress and conversion of Sul if Tarsus ; taking- as bis text "It is hard for thee to ki'-k against the goads" 1 ne speaker sa'd, sometimes conver sion t ik s so long a titne that it is im oes; b'e to tell -ju-t wh'-n te change takes place. And then aeaio the process is instantaneous. There are three factors that make the Impression of a life time, viz., parents, teachers and course of study. The scbooliag especially that Saul had exercised mm great influence on his mind. The law was ivea markei attention by the student f i-f-m Tardus; and it is to be co ted that tue law in those times in cluded both the moral and ceremonial law. None, however, were able to keep the law as it t-hould be kept. The speaker referred to Saul's atten dance i n the lectures of that great At torney Gama lei whose sige advice was given heed to by the Jews more than oi;ce to their profit, as sacred his tory n-tes. Such teaching must have bad a marked atd salut try effect on the joung studrn;. The history of rel'gious persecution was here touched upon by tue speaker who said it was a vindication of the principles of Pro testantism as against the pretentions of the Komaa Catholic church. Spiritual priuo pies will tiiumoh al ways in the end. Mr. Millican gave an interesting descriptive of Saul's career in epitome, frorr his early course ioclnuifg Lis perse cutions' of the early Chri-tians. His ct augeof front end the di am a tie episodes fol lowing were vividly set forth, acd the fallacy of aU mptiog to work against th'j will of God de aiied. The fact that Mia tittut is able to remain as organist in consequence of improved health, is a source of much gratification to the pastor, choir and congregation The Y. M. C A. Rev. McClintuck tave a scholarly and thoughtful address last evening, at the Y. M. C. A., on some of the "evi dences of spiritual force in the natural world. The speaker said in part; this subject has been the nucleus of at tempts on the part of many to put God out of the hear; and minds of men; on the pdrt of su h as tave bred sophistry common among mankind, and who do not like the sense of accouotab liy that ihe know lege of God brings. The-e are men who have lived long lives of sii, who are so dead spiritual ly that the animal side of their n-i ure has triumphed completely. In the search for wealth, a;dwjta evil as sociations Txun have become ani malized, embru'eJ. God writes on the coun'ena'jci s of men tre character of tteir associations; so the fact that & man I ves a bad life, is written ail over his face, and if be lives a righteous life the fact is also written on b)-;. features- M ;n who live uaregenerata lives are sk .-pjicaliy ia clined, they do not 'ike the idea of re tribu'ion, aet ou liability, of life after d iith; aud prefer o relieve ra.hr in ainibi'a'iou aft; r death, f an a life bej yond the g-ave. Such men carry the awful reap jn&ibility of the risk of meeting an angry God after Jea'h. The scriptures tell us that suc'n are in tine cut off, and that without remedy. The opoosition of men is aroused by the fact of obligation on his vart, and he di-likes to realize th-it he is entira y dependent upon God's bounty. More over, we owe much to t.hoe around us. as well as to the past 1 e -auseof the ex-1 perience that Is brought out and devel- f oped-in tt e I'ght of past histo-y. It is to be regretted that we find men of talent engaged in the nefarious work of scattering the seea or infidelity and .youtniui minds in whk-h these seeds be come implanted are influenced by them to thedetrimftntof the wellfare of their souls So b-'ftr in mind thet you have an indirect us well as a direct in fluence on your fello m- rtal. which should rrake us the ore careful. No man can he ca'led a true man who does not make himself flt for co d am ng his fellow men. The ida of liv'rg ourely for oneself is a devilish or.t. Don't be con'ent to tit. q-riet and let the world to by whi'e you do nothing. We are under rbltga'ixn to honor and srv God -y our lives by o -r voluntary serv ce. We all have pow er to cnoose tl e right or th-i wronr course, and a we accept r rejec , our souls a'e saved or lo-t. Bu' we can not unaided cbooj" s irifia lives. We I mnot havu H.-H hln.

The evidences of God's presence are coitirually with us, and if we di not recogn.ze it, is is because of ur wi k edaeis. The speaker nuadd a point of the reading of God's presence in na tures, wonderful works, and the evidences of a God all about us, in our lives. It is only he who is purposely blifd who will not see. Cons der the design and marvellous purpose we see in countless phenomena ever occurring and reoccurring within the scope of our observation. There must be a creative and intelligent mind to ordain and regulate all of these thingp. Chance does not enter into this creative de sign; everything is conceived and car ried out with the most intelligent and benevolent purpose. The speaker was attentively listened to. Laborers With God. Rev. A. Li. Lumkin of Peoria, IIIp., preached yesterday morninsr, in rlnity church from the text, "We are labor ers together with God;" 1 Cor. 111:9. The speaker said in part: When God expelled Adorn from the garden of Eden he told him that he should earn h's bread by the sweat of his brow; but what was origin-illy considered a curse turned out as one of man's grea'est blessings. The most miserable of men is hn wbo bas nothing to do. Idleness is the devil's own workshop. All our blessing are conditioned upon labor, and there is no such thing as achieve ment without labor on the part of somebody. Some think that the ca'e of the idle rich man is an exception But, the rich young man enjoys his idle pleasures because of the labors of in iiu tri ius ancestors. All developement rests on w v'-c It takes spiritual work to develop spiritual stamina, just as it requires manual labor to develop spir itual strength. Gold is more valuable than silver because it takes more labor to secure it. Men are facing the cold, starvation and death in the north to eet eold which is so hard to secure Allvalusis conditioned upon work. Iron and crold would exchange places if the condit'ons governing their min ing wore transposed If is labor that makes the iron watch spring worth more than its we'ght in gold. Th ignorant man is of no value intelle-c-tna'ly because his brain has don-' ro work. Young man, work and improve your brain, nd your value will in crease as time coes by. We are all labi ring men, and all have our places. God mskes mechanics as well as preachers. It is far bette- to be agrod farmer than a poor peicher. We ought t; be ill !ne to build a fence around our field and do our work, f t .-.e wil b judged not for the places or abi'i iesof mothers, but f- r our own individual perfo-mance We are un der obligation to do our best in our own sjberes. . Talmage says that a man that, can sing, and wont sirg, ought to besent to Sine- Sing. Men are working these days through or ganization, and just here Mr. Lumkin referred to the excellent prospects of a reunion between the northern and southern branches of the Methodist church. The devil is at the bottom of all division in the church. We are worke-s together with God. This is the climax. God and one ar majority. If we will only eo into partnership with Christ we will be able to touch the eyes of the spiritually blind, and open them.

The man who sutlers from ill health stands little show of being a suc cessful business man. The man who comes to his desk in the morning- with a head ache, who suffers all day from dullness and drowsiness, who goes to his meals without an appetite and tosses restlessly through the night without sleep, is not likely to leave a competence for his widow and or phans. Success is even more dependent upon health than upon ability. Few men realize these truths. They think that everything can be accomplished by work, and that health is a secondary consideration. Work Is useless unless it is good work, and good work is never done save by a thoroughly healthy man. Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery is the best of all health restorers and health pre servers. It makes the stomach strong and active. It sends a man to his meals thor oughly hungry every time. It facilitates the flow of digestive juices and makes as similation perfect. It invigorates the liver. It purifies the blood and fills it with the life-giving elements of the food. It is the great blood-maker and flesh-builder. It tears down inert, half-dead tissues and builds new, firm, muscular fiesh. It does not build flabby fat like cod liver oil ard does not make people more corpulent. Mr. John Brooks, of Boylnton. Mans., writes: " Z write to tell you of the great benefit I have re ceived from Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Disco v ery.w I was taken with a bad cold which settled on my lungs. The doctors said I was in con sumption and could not get well. I took Cod Liver Oil and it did me no good.
