Dr. Tnlmagc took for his text Mat
thew vii., 2: ''With what measure ye
mete, it shall be measured to you
In the greatest sermon ever preach
ed a sermon about 15 minutes long,
according to the ordinary rate of
speech a sermon on the Mount of
Olives, the preacher sitting while He
spoke, according to the ancient mode
of orator, the people were given to
understand that the same yard-stick
that they employed upon others would
be employed upon themselves. Meas
ure others by a- harsh rule, and you
wilK be measured by a harsh rule.
Measure others by a charitable rule,
and you will be measured by a char
itable rule. Give no mercy to others
and no mercy will be given to j'ou.
"With what measure ye mete, it shall
be measured to you again."
There is a great deal of unfairness in
criticism in human conduct. It was to
smite that unfairness that Christ ut
tered the words of the text, and my
sermon will be a re-echo of the divine
sentiment. In estimating the mis
behavior of others, we must take into
consideration the pressure of circum
stances. It is never right to do wrong,
but there are degrees of culpabilitj'.
When men misbehave or commit some
atrocious wickedness we are disposed
indiscriminately to tumble them all
over the bank of condemnation. Suf
fer they ought, and suffer they must,
but in difference of degree.
In the first place, in estimating the
misdoing of others, we must take into
calculation the hereditary tendency.
There is such a thing as good blood,
and there is such a thing as bad blood.
There are families that have had a
moral twist in them for a hundred
years back. They have not been
careful to keep the family record
in that regard. There have been
escapades, and maraudings and
scoundrclisms and moral deficits
all the way back, whether j-ou
call it kleptomania, or pyromania or
dipsomania, or whether it be in a
milder form, and amount to no mania
at alL The strong probability is that
the present criminal started life with
nerve, muscle and bone contaminated.
As some start life with a natural ten
dency to nobility and generosity and
kindness and truthfulness, there are
others who start life with just the op
posite tcndenc, and they are born
liars, or born malcontents, or born
outlaws, or born swindlers.
There is !.n England a school that is
called the Princess Mary school. All
the children in that school are the
children of convicts. The school is
under high-patronage. I had the pleas
ure of being presented at one of their
anniversaries, presided over by the
earl of Kintore. By a wise law in
England, after parents have commit
ted a cirtain number of crimes, and
thcreb shown themselves incompetent
rightly to bring up their children, the
little ones are taken from under per
nicious influences and put in reform
atory schools, where all gracious and
kindly influences shall be brought
upon them, Of course the experiment
is young, and it has got to be demon
strated how large a percentage of the
children of convicts may be brought
up to respectability and usefulness.
But we all know that it is more diffi
cult for children of bad parentage to
do right than for children of good
In this country we are taught by the
declaration of American independence
that all people are born equal. There
never was a greater misrepresentation
put in one sentence than in that sen
tence which implies that we are born
equal. You may as well say that flow
ers are born equal, or animals are born
equal. Why does one horse cost S100
and another horse cost 55,000? Why
does one sheep cost S10 and another
sheep cost 500? Difference in blood.
We are wise enough to recognize it
in Iiorses, in cattle, in sheep, but we
are not wise enough to make allow
ances for the difference in the human
blood. Now I demand by the law of
eternal fairness that you be more
lenient in your criticism of those who
were born wrong, in whose ancestral
line there was a hangman's knot, or
who came from a tree the fruit of
which for centuries has been gnarled
and worm-eaten.
Dr. Harris, a reformer, gave some
marvelous statistics in his story of a
woman he called "Margaret, the
mother of criminals." Ninety years
ago she lived in a village in upper New
York state. She was not only poor,
but she was vicious. She was not well
provided for. There were no alms
houses there. The public however,
somewhat looked after her, but chiefly
scoffed at her, and derided her, and
pushed her further down in crime.
That was 00 j'cars ago. There have
been 623 persons in that ancestral line,
200 of them criminals. In one branch
of that family there were 20, and nine
of them have been in state prison, and
nearly all of the others have turned
out badly.
It is estimated that that family cost
the county and state 8100,000, to say
nothing of the property they destroy
ed. Are j'ou not willing, as sensible,
fair people, to acknowledge that it is a
fearful disaster to be born in such an
ancestral line? Does it not make a
great difference whether one descends
from Margaret, the mother of crimi
nals, or from some mother in Israel?
Whether you are the son of Ahab or
the son of Joshua?
It is a very different thing to swim
with the current from what it is to
swim against the current, as some of
you have no doubt found in your sum
mer recreation. If a man finds him
self in an ancestral current, where
there is good blood flowing smoothly
from generation to generation, it is
not a great credit to him if he turn out
good, and honest, and pure, and noble.
He could hardly help it. But suppose he
is born in an ancestral line, in an hered
itary line, where the influences have
been bad, and there has been a coming
down over a moral declivity, if the
man surrenders to the influences he
will go down under the overmastering 1
gravitation unless some supernatural
aid be afforded him. Now, such a per
son deserves not your excoriation, but
your pity. Do not sit with the Hp
curled in scorn, and with an assumed
air of angelic innocence looking down
upon such moral precipitation. You
had better get down on your knees and
first pray Almighty God for your km I
ee, and next thank the Lord that you
have not been thrown under the wheels
of that juggernaut.
In Gn at Britain and in the United
States, in every generation, there are
tens of thousands of persons who are
fully developed criminals and incar
cerated, I say in every generation.
Then I snppu&a there are tens of
thousands of persons not found out
in their criminality. In addition
to Jthese there arc, tens of thou
sands of persons who, not posi
tively becoming criminals, neverthe
less have a criminal tendency. Anyone
of all those thousands, by the grace of
God may become Christian, and resist
the ancestral influence, and open anew
chapter of behavior; but the vast ma
jority of them will not, and it becomes
all men, professional, ministers of
religion, judges of courts, philan
thropists and Christian workers,
to recognize the fact that there
are these Atlantic and Pacific surges
of hereditary evil rolling on through
the centuries. I say of course, a man
can resist this tendency, just as in the
ancestral line mentioned in the first
chapter of Matthew. You see in the
same line in which there was a wicked
Rehoboam and a desperate Manasses,
there afterward came a pious Josiah
and a glorious Christ. But my friends,
you must recognize the fact that these
influences go on from generation to
generation. I am glad to know
however, that a river which has pro
duced nothing but miasma for a hun
dred miles, may after awhile turn the
wheels of factories and help support
industrious and virtuous populations;
and there are family lines which were
poisoned that are a benediction now.
At the last day it will be found out
that there are men who have gone
clear over into all forms of iniquity
and plunged into utter abandonment,
who before they yielded to the first
temptation resisted more evil than
many a man ho has been moral and
upright all his life.
But, supposing now, that in this age,
when there are so many good people,
that I come down into this audience
and select the very best man in it. I
do not mean the man who would style
himself the besA, for probably he is a
hj'poerite; but I mean the man who
before God is really the best. I will
take you out from all your Christian
surroundings. I will put you in a de
praved home. I will put j-ou in a
cradle of iniquity. Who is bending
over that cradle? An intoxicated
mother. Who is that swearing in the
next room? Your father. The neigh
bors come in to talk, and their jokes
are unclean. There is not in the house
a Bible or a moral treatise but only a
few scraps of an old pictorial.
After awhile you are old enough to
get out of the cradle, and you are
struck across the head for naughtiness,
but never in any kindly manner repri
manded. After awhile you are old
enough to go abroad, and you are sent
out with a basket to steal. If you come
homo without any spoil you are whip
ped until the blood comes. At 15 years
of age you go out to fight your own
battles in this world, which seems to
care no more for you than the dog that
has died of a fit under the fence.
You are kicked and cuffed and buf
feted. Some day, rallying your cour
age, you resent some wrong. A man
says: "Who are you? I know who you
are. Your father had free lodgings at
Sing Sing. You mother, she was up
for drunkenness at the criminal court.
Get out of the way, you low-lived
wretch!" My brother, suppose that had
been the history of your advent, and
the history of your earlier surround
ings, would you have been the Chris
tian man you are to-day, seated in this
Christian assembly? I tell you nay.
You would have been a vagabond, an
outlaw, a murderer on the scaffold
atoning for your crime. All these con
siderations ought to make us merciful
in our dealings with the wandering
and the lost
Again, I have to remark, that in our
estimation the misdoing of people who
have fallen from high respectability
and usefulness, we must take into con
sideration the conjunction of circum
stances. In nine cases out of ten the
man who goes astray does not intend
any positive wrong. He has trust
funds. He risks a part of these funds
in investment He says, "Now, if I
should lose that investment I have of
my own property five times as much,
and if this investment should go
wrong I could easily make it up; I
could five times make it up." With
that wrong reasoning he goes on and
makes an investment, and it does not
turn out quite as well as he expected.
and he makes another investment, and
strange to say at the same time all his
other affairs get entangled, and all his
other resources fail, and his hands arc
tied. Now he wants to extricate him
self. He goes a little further on in the
wrong investment He takes a plunge
further ahead, for he wants to save his
wife and children, he wants to save his
home, he wants to save his member
ship in the church. He takes one more
plunge and all is lost
Some morning at 10 o'clock the bank
door is not opened, and there is a card
on the door signed by an officer of the
bank, indicating there is trouble, and
the name of the defaulter or the de
frauder heads the newspaper column
and hundreds of men say: "Good for
him;" hundreds of other men say:
"I'm glad he's found out at last;"
hundreds of other men say: "Just as
I told you;"' hundreds of other men
say: "We couldn't possibly have been
tempted to do that no conjunction of
circumstances could ever" have over
thrown me;" and there is a superabund
ance of indignation, but no pity. The
heavens full of lightning but not one
drop of dew. If God treated us as so
ciety treats that man we would all
have been in hell long ago!
Wait for the alleviating circum
stances. Perhaps he may have baen
the dupe of others. Bafore you let all
the hounds out from their kennel to
maul and tear that man, find out if he
has not been brought up. in a commer
cial establishment where there was a
wrong system of ethics taught; find
out whether that man has not an ex
extravagant wife who is not satisfied
with his honest earnings, and in the
temptation to please her he has gone
into that ruin into which enough
men have fallen and by the same
temptation, to make a procession of
many miles. Perhaps some sudden
sickness may have touched his brain,
and his judgment may be unbalanced.
He is wrong, he is awfully wrong, and
he must be condemned, but there may
be mitigating circumstances. Perhaps
under the same temptation you might
have fallen. The reason some men do
not steal 8200,000 is because they do not
get a chancel Hare righteous indigna

duct, but temper it with mercy.

Heaven, and went into the blackness
of darkness forever. You defiantly
say: "I could not be tempted in that
way." Perhaps you may be tested
after awhile. God has a very good

say: "This man feels so strong in his
innate power and goodness he shall be

against that unfortunate it shall bo

Soiiim Mutual Mnt Co.,
Our plan is a new application of an old principle, and is based up
on the actual experience of successful life insurance companies, cover
ing a period of over 200 years. The same principles govern both, only
WE pay while you L,1VE.
THEY pay when you DIE.
1 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 mathemalical 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 no reason why a man should die to reap the hen
flti of his investment.
We return an average of $2.30 for every dollar paid us, and yet we
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 insuiable. $nly
the ; sound and healthy, who least need it's advantages, can obtain
Hfe insurance. Why should there not be a means provided whereby
the other eighty (80) 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 l:ic 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
yers, 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 systetp.

lo whom tl may concern.
This is to certify, that my husband, W. F. White, about three -ears ago, in
vested in the Southern Mutual Investment Co. Since that time there have
been 2G coupons to mature, on which the Company has paid his estate 51,0-21,90.
These coupons cost his estate less than 5700,00 to mature them. I am pleased
with the investment he made, and am still carrying 04 coupons in the Company
