There is no record of their decease.
For what were they distinguished.
Absolutely nothing, or the trait
of character wouiu imve o-eu
brought out by the apostle. If tucy
had been ycrv intrepid, or op-
uh'iit. or hirsute, or musical of ca
dence, or cras of style, or hi any wiij
anomalous, that feature would have
been caught by the apostolic camera.
Hut thev were jrood people, because
Paul sends to thiin hi high Christian
ards. They were ordinary people,
moving m ordinary spnere, .itiunum ;
to ordinary duty, and meeting ordi
nary responsibilities.
What the world wants is a religion
for ordinary people. If tlu-re be in the
Unite I States 7J,030,000 people, there
are certainly not more than l,O0y,O0J
extraordinary; and then there are Ctt,-
O0J,O0J ordinary, and we do well to
turn our backs for a liUlr while upon j
tiie distinguished and conspicuous peo- j
pic of the l.ible and consider in our
text the fceyen ordinary. W'e spend too
much of our tiliie in twisting garlands
for remarkables, and building thrones'
for magnates, and sculpturing war-,
riors, and apotheosizing philanthro
pists. The rank jiiid hie of the L.oM s
boldiery need especial help.
The vast majority of people will

invention, will never introduce a new
philosophy, will never decide the fate
of a nation. You do not e pact to, j ou
do not want to. You will not be a
Closes to lead a nation out of bondaje.
You will not be a Joshua to prolong
the i.aylight until you can shut live
kin.s"n a cavern. You will not be a
St. John to unroll an Apocalypse. You
will n-t be a Paul to preside over an
ai ostolic college. You will not be a
Mary to mother a Christ. You will
more probably be Ayncritus, or
Phlegon, or Hernias, or Patrobas, or
Hermes, or Philologus. or Julia.
Many of you are women at the head
of households. Every morning you
plan for the day. The culinary depart
ment of the household is in your do
minion, i oil uecliie aw question
diet. All the anitiry regulations of
your house are under your supervision.
To regulate the food, and the apparel,
and th-e habit and decide the thou
sand questions of home life is a tax
upon brain and nerve and general
health absolutely appalling, if there be
no divine alleviation.
It do s not help you iniuth to be told
that Elizabeth Fry did wonderful
things amid the criminals at Newgate.
It does not help 3-011 much to be told
that Mrs. Judson was very brave
among the Hofnesian cannibals. It
does not help you very much to be told
that Florence Nightingale was very
kind to the wounded in the Crimea. It
would he better for me to tell you
that the Divine friend of Mary and
Martha is 3our friend, and that He
sees all the annoyances and disappoint
ments and abrasions and exasperations
of an ordinary housekeeper from morn
till night, and from the first day of the
year until the last day of the year, and
at your call He is ready with help and
, re-enforcement.
Thev who provide the food of the
world decide the health of the world.
You have only to go on some errand
amid the taverns and the hotels of
the United Ktates and (Freat Uritain to
appreciate the fact that a vast multi
tude of the human race are slaughter
ed by incompetent cookery. Though
a young woman may have taken les
sons in music, and may have taken les
sors in painting, and lessons in astron
omy, she is not well educated unless
she has taken lessons in doughj They
who decide the apparel of the world,
and the food of the world, decide the
endurance of the world.

Q'hen there are all the ordinary busi
ness men. They need divine and
Christian help. When we begin to
talk about business life we shoot right
off and talk about men who did busi
ness on a large scale, and who sold
millions of dollars of goods a year; and
the vast majority of business men do
not sell a million dollars of goods, nor
half a million, nor a quarter of a nm-
lion, nor the eighth part .of a million.
Put all the business yi'en .of our cities,
tosvj.s, -villages and jutighborhoods side

Now, wlr.it i. wa".t!l is giacu di

loss of a whole siijpload of spices from

loss of a paper of collars from the

grace to endure the tardiness of an er

have to-day keeping them tranquil,
whether goods sell or do not sell,
whether customers pay or do not pay,
whether tariff h up or tariff is down,
whether the crops are luxuriant or a
dead failure calm in all circum
stances, and amid all vicissitudes. That
h, the kind of grace we want.
Millions of inen want it, and they
may have it for the ashing. Some hero

gone through freezing Arctics and
burning torrids, and awful Maivnt;oes

miles from their doorstep.
Now, what ordinary business men
need is to realize that they have the
friendship of that Christ who looked
after the religious interests of Mat

Then there are all tlie ordinary
farmers, We talk about agricultural
life, and we immediately shoot off to
'talk about Cincinnatus, the patrician,
who went from the plow to a high po
sition, and after he got through the
dictatorship in 121 days went back
again to the plow. What encourage
mpnt js that to ordinar farmers".1
The vast majority qf thpm none of
them will be patricians, J'ernaps none
of them will bo senators. If any of
them have dictatorships it will
be over forty or fifty or a hundred
acres of the old homestead. What
these men want is grace to keep their
patience while plowing with balky
oxen, and to keep cheerful amid the
drought that destroys the corn crop,
ami that enables them to restore the
garden the day after tho neighbor's
cattle have broken in and trampieu
out the strawberry bed, and gone
through the Lima bean patch and eat
en up the sweet corn in such large
quantities that they must be kept from

Our plan is a new application of an old principle, and is based up
on tho actual experience of successful life insurance companies, cover
ing a period of over 200 years. The same principles govern Upth, only
WE pay while you LIVE.
THEY pay when you DIE.
WE offer the INVESTMENT features.
THEY protect in case of DEATH.
With them, death is the moving factor, causing the payment of the
policy; with us, a definite and fixed mathematical rule, in lieu of death,
matures the policy.
They figure on so many men out of a thousand dying we figure
on so many policies, They kill the man we kill the policy.
There is 110 reason why a man should dio to reap the hen
fit ol' his investment.
We return an average of $2.30 for every dollar paid us, and yet Ave
assume an obligation less than one-third as great as has been assumed
and paid for years by the leading life insurance companies of America.
Only about twenty (20) per cent, of the people are insurable. Only
the sound and healthy, vho least need it's advantages, can obtain
life insurance.' Why should there not be a means provided whereby
the other eighty (So) per cent, of the population can carry an invest
ment the same as the favored few who can get life insurance? Our mis
sion is to open the door to the entire population to enjoy the same or
greater benefits for an equal or less expenditure, considering the ad
vantage to be derived, and that those advantages maybe enjoyed during
life by the one making the investment.
That our plan is popular and based upon sound business princi
ples, is evidenced by our large and increasing membership, as shown
by our remarkable 'Exhibit of Growth, See literature.
We court the clysest scrutiny and most thoroug investigation. No
statement made that cannot be verified by actual results.
Others Make Money. Why Not You?
The endorsement given this Company by the investment of bankers, law
y;rs, merchants, ministers, doctors, railroad men. mechanics in fact, men of
business sagacity in every vocation of life is an evidence of the soundness of
our sys'em.
