llr. Ta Image's. text Sunday was: Job
xxxii., ai: "And now men see not the
bright light which is in the clouds."
Wind east, Iiarotnetur falling.
Storm-signals out. Ship reefing main
topsail. Awnings taken in. Prophe
cies of foul weather everywhere. The
clouds congregate around the sun, pro
posing to abolish him. ltut after au liile
he assails thu thinks of the clouds with
Hying artillery of light, and here
and there is a sign of clearing weather.
Many do not observe it. Many do not
realize it. "'And now men see not the
bright light which is in the; clouds." In
other words there are a hundred men
looking for sunshine. My object will
be to get you and myself into the de
lightful habit of making the best of
everything.
You may have wondered at the
statistics that in India, in the j'car
1S7., there were, over 19,000 people
slain by wild beasts, and that in the
year 1870 there were in India over 20,
1)00 people destroyed by wild animals.
Uut there is a monster in our own
hind which is year by year destroying
more than that. It is the old bear of
melancholy, and with Gospel weapons
I propose to chase it hack to its mid
night caverns. I mean to do two sums
a sum in subtraction and a sum in
addition a subtraction from your
da3s of depression and an addition to
your days of joy. If God will help nie
1 will compel you to see the bright
light that there is in the clouds, and
compel you to make the best of every
thing. In the first place you ought to make
the very best of all your financial mis
fortunes. During the panic a few years
ago 3ou nil lost money. Some of yon
lost it in most unaccountable ways.
For the question: "How many thou
sands of dollars shall I put aside this
year?" on substituted: "How shall I
pay my butcher, and baker, and cloth
ier, and landlord?'' Yon had the sen
sation of rowing hard with two oars,
and yet all the time going down
stream.
Yon did ijot. say much about it be
cause it was not politic to speak much
of financial embarrassment, but your
wife knew. Less variety of wardrobe,
more economy at the table, self-denial
in art and tapestry. Compassion; re
trenchment. Who did not feeL the
necessity of it? My friends, did 3'ou
make the host of this? Are you aware
tiow narrow an escape you made?
Suppose you had reached the fortune
toward which you were rapidly going?
What then? You would have been as
proud as Lucifer?
How few men have succeeded largely

cratlotil Not onu m:ut ottlj of a hun
dred. There, are glorions exceptions,
hut the general rule Ls that in propor
tion us a man gets well off for this
world he gets poorly off for the next.
He loses his sense of dependence on
God. He gets a distaste for pra3-er
meetings. With plenty of bank stocks
and plenty of government securities,
what does that man know of the
prayer, "give me this day my daily
bread?" How few men largely success
ful in this world are bringing souls to
Christ, or showing self-denial for
others, or are eminent for piety? You
can count them all upon your eight
lingers and two thumbs.
One of the old covetous souls, when
he was sick, and sick unto death, used
to have a basin brought in a basin
filled with gold, aud his onby amuse
ment and the only relief he got for his
inflamed hands was running them
down through the gold and turning it
up in the basin. Oh, what infatuation
and what destroying power money lias
for many a man! Now, you were sail
ing at SO knots the hour toward these
vortices of worldliness what a mercy
it was, that honest defalcation! The
same divine hand that crushed your
storehouse, 3'our bank, 3our ofiicc,
3'our insurance, lifted you out of de
struction. The da3 3-ou honestly sus
pended in business made your fortune
for eternitj'.
"Oh," you sa3 "I could get along
very well myself, but I am so disap
pointed that I can not leave a compe
'tence to my children." Mj" brother,
the same financial misfortune that is
going to save 3'our soul will save your
children. With anticipation of a large
fortune, how much industry would
3-our children have? without which
habit of industr3" there is no safet3
The 3'oung man would say: "Well,
there's no need of 013' working; m3'
father will soou step out and
then I'll have just what I want,"
You can not hide from him how
much 3'ou arc worth. You think 3'ou
are hiding it; he knows all about it.
He can tell 3'ou almost to a dollar.
Perhaps he has been to the county of
fice and searched the records of deeds
and mortgages, and he has added it all
up, and he has made an estimate of
how long 3'ou will probably stay in
this world, and is not as much worried
about 3'our rheumatism and shortness
of breath as 3ou are. The only for
tune worth an3'thing that 3ou can
give 3'our child is the fortune you put
in his head and heart. Of all the
3-oung men who started life with 10,-
000 capital how man3' turned out well?
1 do not know half a dozen.
The best inheritance a 3-oung man
can have is the feeling that he has to
fight his own battle, and that life is a
struggle into which he must throw
bod3', mind and soul, or be disgrace
fplly worsted. Where are the burial
places of the men who started life
with a fortune? Some of them in the
potter's field; some in the suicide's
gravo. Uut fev of these men reached
1VJ years of age. They drank, the3
6inokod, they gambled. In them the
beast destroyed the man. Some of them
lived long enough to get their for
tunes and went through them. The vast
majority of them did not live to get
their inheritance. From the gin shop
or house of infamy they were brought
home to their father's house, and in
delirium began to pick off loathsome
reptiles from the embroidered pillow,
and to fight back imaginary devils.
And then they were laid out in highby
upholstered parlor, the casket covered
with flowers by indulgent parents
flowers suggestive of a resurrection
with no hope.
As you eat this morning at your
breakfast table, and looked into the
faces of 3'our children, perhaps you
said within 3'ourself, "Poor-things!
How I wish I could start them in life
with a couipetcnccl How I hate been
disappointed in all nvy e tpoctations of
what I would do for them!" l:pou thu!.
&cciic of pathos I btuk with a pat an
of congratulation, that by yuixr finan
cial losses -(;iir own prospects for
Heaven and the prospect for the Heav
en of 3-our children is iniglitihy im
proved. You may have lost a to-, but
you have won a palace.
"How hard 13- shall tlu- that have
riches enter into the kingdom of God!"
"It is easier for a camel to go through
a needle's cv than for a rich man to
enter the kingdom of Heaven." What
does that mean? It means that the
grandest blessing Gi.d ever bestowed
upon ymi was to take your money uwiiy
from I'ou. Let me here .sa3. in pass
ing, do not put much stress on the
treasures of this world. You can not
take them along with you. At. any
rate, you can not take them more than
two or three miles; you will have
to leave them at the eeiuete:'. At
tila had three coffins. So fond
was he of his life that he decreed that
lirst he should be buried in a coffin of
gohr, and that thn that should be in
closed in a coffin of silver, and that
should be inclosed in a coffin of iron,
and then a large amount of treasure
should be thrown in over his body.
And so he was buried, and the men
who buried him were slain, so that no
one might know where he was buried,
and no one might there interfere with
his treasures. Oh. men of the world,
who want to take your nione3 with
you, better have three coffins!
Again, I remark, j'ou ought to make
the vei'3' b.-st of your bereavements.
The whole tendency is to brood over
these separations, and to give much
time to the handling of mementoes of
the departed, and to make long visita
tions to the cemeter3 and to sax: "Oh.
I can never look up again; my hope is
gone; 1113 courage is gone; 1113 religion
is gone; im faith in God is gone! Oil.
the wear and imr and exhaustion of
this loneliness:" The most frequent
bereavement is the loss of children. If
your departed child had live I
as long as 3-011 have lived do
you not suppose that he would have had
about the same amount of trouble and
trial that 3-ou have had? If 3-011 could
make a choice of 3-011 r child between -to
3cars of animyance, loss, vexation, ex
asperation and bereavein -nts, and 10
years in Heaven, would 3-011 take the
responsibility of choosing the former?
Would 3ou snatch awa3 the cup of
eternal bliss and put into that child's
hands the cup of mam bereavements?
Instead of th.j complete s:ifet3 into
which that child has been lifted, would
jou like to hold it down to the risks
of this mortal state? Would 3011
like to keep it out on a sea in
which there have baen more shipwrecks
than safe voj'ages? Is it not a
comfort to 3-011 to know that the child,
instead of being besoiled and Hung in
to the mire of sin, is swung cljar into
the skies? . Are not tho-.e children to
be congratulated that the point of
celestial bliss which 3011 expect to
reach hy a pilgrimage of .0 or 00 or 70
years, they reached at a ila-.h? If tlie
UKUM children wlio had entered
Hcnvuii had gone through the average
of human life on earth are 3-011 suiv
till those 10,000 would have finally
reached the blissful terminus?
Uesides that 1113 friends, 3-011
are to look at this matter as a self
denial on 3'our part for their benefit
If 3-our children want to go off in a
May -day part3'; if 3our children want
to goon a flower3 and musical excur
sion, 3-ou consent. You might prefer
to have them with you, but their jubi
lant absence satisfies j'on. Well, jour
departed children have onh gone out
in a Mnj-daj part3 amid flowery and
musical entertainment, amid jo3's and
hilarities forever. That ought to quell
some of j'our grief, the thought of
their glee.
So it ought to be that j-ou could
make the best of all bereavements.
The fact that 3'ou have so mati3" friends
in Heaven will make 3our departure
very cheerful. When j'ou are going on
a voj-agc everything depends upon
where 3our friends are if thej are on
the wharf that 3-011 leave or on the
wharf toward which 3011 are going to
sail. In other words, the more friends
j'on have in Heaven th easier it will
be to get away from the world. The
more friends here, the more bitter
gooi'l'3's; the more friends there the
more glorious welcomes.
Some of 3'ou have so 111:1113- brothers,
sisters, children, friends in Heaven
that I do not know hardlj how 3011
are going to crowd through. Wlien
the vessel came from foreign lan Is and
brought a prince to our harbor the
ships were covered with bunting, and
3011 remember how the men-of-war
thundred broalsides; but th. ra was no
jo3 there compared with the j3 which
shall be demonstrated when 3-011 sail up
the broad ba3' of Heavenly salutation.
The more friends 3-011 have there the
easier your own transit. SVhat is death
to a mother whose children nre in
Heaven? Why, there is no more grief
1'n it than there is in her going into a
iurscr3 amid the romp and laughter
of her household. Though all around
maj be dark, see you not the bright
light in the clouds that light the
irradiated faces of j-our glorified kin
dred? So, also, my friends, I would have
you make the best of jour sicknesses.
When 3-ou see one move off with elas
tic step and in full physical vigor,
sometimes 3-011 become impatient with
your lame foot When a man describes
an object a mile off, and j-ou can not
see it at all, 3-ou become impatient
of your dim eye. When you hear of a
well man making a great achievement
you become impatient with 3our de
pressed nervous system or your dilapi
dated health. I will tell you how you
can make the worst of it. Urood over
it; brood over all these illnesses, and
your nerves will become more witchy
and your dyspepsia more aggravated
and your weaknesses more appalling.
Hut that is the devil's work, to tell you
how to make the worst of it; it is mj
work to show you a bright light in the
clouds.
Which of the Hibla men most'attract
3our attention? You saj, Moses, Job.
David, Jeremiah, Paul. Why, what a
strange thing it is that jou have
chosen those who werj physically dis
ordered! Moses I know he was nerv
ous from the clip he gave the Egyptian.
Job his blood was vitiated and dis
eased and his skin distressfully erup
tive. -David he had a running sore,
which he speaks of when he says;
"My sore ran in the night and ceased
not" Jeremiah had enlargement
of the spleen. Who can-doubt it
who reads Lamentations? Paul ho had
a lifetime sickness which tho commen
tators have been guessing about for
years, not knowing exactly what the
apostle meant by "a thorn in the
flesh." I do not know either: but it
was something; sharp, something that
stuck him. I gather from all this that
hysical disorder may be the means of
jraee to tl.e -o.il. You viy j'on havo
-0 111:1113- temptations from bodily ail
iu:i:s, and if 3'ou were only well 3ou
hin!; 3-011 could be a good Christian.
While 3-0111- temptations 111:13 00 diffor
nt, thej' are no in ire than those of
the man who has an appetite three
iir.es a daj anil sleeps eight hours
v.M-y night.
From 1113- olservation I judge that
invalids have a more rapturous view of
the next world than well people, and
will have higher renown in Heaven,
flu; best view of the delecta
ble mountains- is through the
lattice of the sickroom. There
are trains running every hour
between pillow and tnrone. between
lio-pilal aud mansion, between ba:.d
.iges and robes, between crutch
ami palm branch. Oh, I wish
iome j T 3-011 people, who are com
pelled to erj, "Mj head, my
head! mj- fool. 1113 fool! ntv back, my
hack!" would try some of the Lord's
medicine! You are going to be well
aii3how before long. Heaven is an old
cit but has never 3-et reported one
case of .sickness or one bill of mortal
ity. No ophthalmia for the eye. No
pneumonia for the lung.?. No pleurisy
for the .side No neuralgia for the nerves.
Xo rheumatism for the muscles.
The inhabitants shall never say,
"I am sic;-." "There shall bj no more
pain."
Again, you ought to make the best
of life's linality. Now, 3011 think I
have a vcrj' tough subject You do not
see how I am to strike a spark of light
out of the flint of tho tomlston.-.
There are main people who have an
idea that death is the submergence of
I'verj'thing pleasant bj everything
ilolefutT If my subject could elos in
the upsetting of all such preconceived
notions, it would close well. Who cm
judge best of the features of a mm
those who are close bj him. or th sj
who are a'ar off? "Oh," 3011 saj,
'those can jtulge best of the featnresof
a man who areclos b3 him!"'
Now, my friends, who shall judge of
tho features of death whether they
are lovely or whether thej- are repul
sive? You? You are too far oil. If I
want to get a judgment as to what
really the features of death are, I will
not ask 3-011; I will ask those who havo
been within a month of death, or a
week of death, or an hour of death, or
a minute of death. Thej stand so near
the features, they can tell. Tin-j-give
unanimous testimony, if they
are Christian people, that death, in
stead of being demoniac, is cherubic.
Of all the thonsands of Christians who
have been carried through the gates of
the cemetery, gather up their dj-ing1
experiences, and 3'ou will fi id the3'
nearlj'all bordered on a jubilate. How
often 3-011 see a dj'ing man join in
the psalm being sung around his bed
side, the middle of the verse opening
to let his ransomed spirit free long
after the lips could not sneak, looking
ami pointing upward.
Som of you talk as though Go.l had
exhausted h.m.-elf in building this
world, and that all the rich curtains
He ever made hung around this planet,
and all the flowers He ever grew Ho
has woven into the carpet of our
daisied meadows. No. This world
is not the best thing (Jo 1 can do; this
world is not the best thing that God
has done.
One week of the j'ear is called blos
som week called so all through the
land because there are more blossoms
in that week than in :tn3 other week
of the 3'car. Ifiossom week! And that
is what the future world is to which
the Christian is invited blossom week
forever. It is as far ahead of this
world as paradise is ahead of Dry Tor
tugas, and yet here we stand shivering
and afraid to go out, and we want to
stay on the . dr sand, and amid the
storm3- petrels, when we are invited to
arcors of jessamine and birds of para
dise. One season I had two spring times.
I went to New Orleans in April, and I
marked the difference between going
toward New Orleans and then coming
back. As I went on down toward
Now Orleans, the verdure, the foliage,
became thicker and more beautiful.
When I came back the further I camo
toward home the less the foliage, and
less and less it became until there was
hardlj aiu. Now it all depends upon
the direction in which j-oifitravel. If
a spirit from Heaven should
come toward our world ho
is traveling from June toward Decem
ber, from radiance toward darkness,
from hanging gardens toward icebergs.
And one would not be very much sur
prised if a spirit of God sent forth
from Heaven toward our world should
be slow to come. Hut how strange it
is that we drea.l going out toward that
world when going is from December
toward June from the snow of earth
lj' storm to the snow of liicnie blos
som -from the arctics of trouble to
ward the tropics of eternal joj.

Recently, while excavating somo
land for the construction of the mu
nicipal sewage outfall works at Stock
port, Cheshire, England, a gigantic
fossilized oak, with two branches com
plete, and computed to weigh over -10
tons, was unearthed. It is quite an
unique specimen, being larger than;
any oak at present growing in Lu
gland, and its soliditj and beauty of
color and grain are alike remarkable.
Prof. Uoyd Dawkins, of Owens college,
considers it can not be Ics3 than 10,009
years old.
