n feelings of Home other children." Then the poorer nelghbora said, "If Squire Carter can nfford to let his children ro to Bundny school barefooted, we can afford to let ours (jo also." Po the poorer children ant every Snudiiy side by side with the rich. Thnt wns n henutlful thltiK to do. It whs worthy of a follower of him who made him rt'lf of no reputation. Are we men of that kind In our Intercourse with our fellows? Are we willing to go bare footed for Christ's pake? Arc jve will ing to associate with the poor? Arc we ready to spend otir lives In trying; to help our fellow men to the cross? In your dully Intercourse with your fellow men are you living for God? How are you different from the man of the world In his social lntcrrour.se with his fellow men? Lenvhifr tho subject, let mo ask how wo differ from the world In our finan cial relations. There Is nn old proverb which soys, "When you touch a man's pocket book, then you find that man's heart Is turned to stone." Sof too often, when you touch a man's poeketbonk theu you llnd his love for God Is turned to stone. The Bible represents Satan us saying that a man will (,'lvo everything for his life. Thnt Is true In one sense, but false In an other, for too often n man will sur render not only his earthly life, but his spiritual life, for gold. Here, for Instance. Is n merchant down In his store. Tor years he has been n slave to business. Ho always talks poor broause he Is always put tins his money back Into tho business. The store grows larger and larger. Now It takes up half a block. "What rre you working for, merchant? To make a larger business? What Is the good of that? Have you not enough n onoy saved up to live upon?" "Ob yes. I can never spend all I have M '"T a " . "V ' ' n-ss." So year by year he works Ho , never tlilnks of the spiritual welfare nf his employees, no never thinks of the good he could do with bis money. II" never Identifies himself with any I hllnnthrople movement, for which his business training has so ir.arvelously fitted him. Hut he works on piling up his gold until his health begins to break. One day bo goes to ll,e doctor, End the physician says, "My frlcud, If you do not stop working you will die " "Then die I must," he answers, "for my business Is my life." Are you to day In your devotion to business doing puv differently from the Pharisees and the publicans? In what way have you o or ift voni- mnnpr redound to the I ra"se of Christ? Show me any differ- p e if .rou can between yourself nnd th selfish, mercenary mnn of the world There Is absolutely none. You say that your love for gold does not diminish your lore for God. Well, we wl'l grant this If you will nnswer aright two or three questions. Tor some years I have heard you denounce Eome of the leading financiers of our Great trusts or business monopolies as a collection of thieves nnd robberr. You say these men linve done more to debauch our legislatures and judiciary and to undermine tho moral and spir itual life of our country than any other single means during the last century. Suppose you had grounds for jour statement and thnt what you said wns true. The highwayman who places the pistol to the forehead of the pedes t'lan and demands that he surrender his all Is not more of a scoundrel than is the man at the bend of nunonopoly who crushes the opposition of his rival, but now that he is between the mill stones himself who has your sym pathy? The Sin of the Monopolist. Rut, though the evils of these trust monopolies may be all that you depict, nnswer me this question: Suppose that today ono of these trust mnguate.s should offer to give you stock in his company worth ?I200,000, would you take it? Then suppose this stock paid nn annual dividend of 30 per cent, would you at once dispose of lt be muse It was made out of tho wreck of n'her fortunes? Or take another Illus tration: Suppose next Sunday morning by breaking the Inws of tho Sabbath day you could sell a piece of real es tate and mnke 51. "'00 on the deal, would you stny awny from the house of God In order to do It? How Is your life d 'Vcrcnt In a llnanclal way from that of the man of the world? If you pould make enough money thereby, would you not bo willing to compro mise your public pledges to your Lord lesus Christ? Tl,,t IllAI-.. tc ntl.A nnnnlUn T H.lnt. 1111k lULlt la UllVlkUUI IJIll.Jllwll 1 niU to auk- What are you doing as n Chris- Han patrl.t? How are you different from the men of the wor d lu this re- pect? Are you thinking or your coun t y only as a social organism whore business it Is to proiect you and care for you nnd benellt you, or are you thinking of lt nud planning for lt as n i great Christian government which can protect all Its own and bo n mighty In ternational power which can help draw 111 the human race to ChrlstV Tho Asiatic Question. Even from the standpoint of tho na ;Ion you can honor or dishonor the :ross of Christ. Take, for Instauce, the tVsIutlc Immigration question, which is upheaving tho Pacific coast. And, nark you, I am not today simply nl tiding to the Asiatic Immigration lato ho United States only, for Canada Is In the same crisis. ".Stop those .lapa nese and Chinamen nud Hindoos com ing into Vancouver!" cry tho lirltlsh co onlsls, "rttop thoye .lapanese and ( hlnamon coming into tho Goldou Gnte!" cry Washington and Oregoi and California Why, why, why, stop them? "Oh." answers the Caucasian rne, "they will overrun us like rats. They will crowd our laborers to tho wall. This is a white man's country, to be Inhabited ouly by white men." J3ut Is this a ivhlto man's country to bo saved only for white men? What do you think Jesus Christ would sny If he were asked about this Immigration problem? Do you bollevo he would say: "Send your merchantmen nnd sol Slers to foreign lands, Englnud nnd Ocrmany nnd Franco and America, Fight among yourselves for the Asiatic trade, but keep all tho yellow skinned ud the black bklnned Asiatics out of pour own Inndn?" Come, let me put this question In an other way. You nro roatTy te grant that tho best civilizing evnngellsts tho world has ever seen nre tho men who liA'ti given thonieiolver: up ns foreign ii .ulonarleu. I defy yru to find ono great missionary In tho whole world who does not strongly advocate the Idea thnt tho more foreigner you' cnu get to Immigrate Into Christian lands tho sooner the world will bo converted to Christ. "Open your schools to them. Open your colleges to them. Open your churches to them, and Christ will soon reign supreme over tho whole world," says tho Presbyterian missionary board In New York and the Congregational missionary board In Hostou nnd the Methodist missionary board In Phlla delphla. Now, my brother, I want to ' ask you, If all the great missionary j here, but cards with deep black bor leaders are advocating tho conversion , tiers, printed or engraved, according to of foreign Innds by bringing tho Chi- i the bank account of the bereaved fam nese and the .lapanese and tho Hindoos ily, nre sent to tho friends who leave to ouv own land, dare we, can we, 1 gght this Immigration problem simply upon the dollar question and not upon the broad ground of Christian brother hood as manifested by Christ's cross? The Liquor Evil. Or take nnothi?r view of this ques tion of Christ Inn citizenship. Here Is 11 II 11 n -fill lb nnnfin.i4u l,b ...u ...... i" T": on every hand 'J 1 etc is no a dge In he rrlmlnn cout of the I n'J States who wll not udn M per cent of all the criminals loug it Into the courts are brought there dl- rectly or Indirectly through tho effect of drink. A majority of the forgeries, tho murders, the crimes, of this laud can be traced directly or Indirectly to the poison of the Intoxicating cup. Aro you trying to tight this evil as a Christian citizen? Aro 'you drinking your wine and beer when you are out in social gatherings, as so many arc nccustomed to do? When the men who have the political slogan "Free America free from the shackles of In temperance!" enter the political nrena, do you vote for them and work for them? I am stating a self evident truth when I declare that the members of the American churches cnu f,olvo . f , , . gether for the freedom of our beloved laud from the domination of the sa loon. Hut again I ask, now nre you differ ent from the man of tho world in your domestic relations? I am not assert ing for one Instant that your home Is not outwardly a Christian home. I believe you have quite n number of lilblcs in your house. Sometimes you have family prayers. Rut the question I ask is this: How nre you bringing up your children? You are getting to gether every dollar you can to spand in their education. You are so anxious about them that some of you are even educating youi children's feet as well as their heads. P.ach week you bend them to dancing school, so that they ran do everything society people nre expected to do. How About the Ministry? Let us turn nnd study your boy. He is a fine fellow, strong, well built and brainy. He has always stood up well In bis classes. Then he hns a wonder ful power of speech. He Is n born orator. Then In addition to all these characteristics he has inherited your mother's deep religious nature. You never heard him tell a falsehood. You never knew him to do a contemptible thing. Ho Is always kind, gentle and manly. You know It would only take a little urging on your part to land him In the ministry. Would you like him to bo a minister? Would you have him go out as a home missionary in the lum ber camps of the west? Would you want him to work night nnd day' as your father did, who was a minister, and then be criticised nnd found fault with and live all his life on a salary that a good mechanic would despise? No. Why not? You profess tho reli gious life Is the happiest. Why do you not want your boy to take it up? Some how your profession of Christ and your action toward your boy do not seem to blend. Then there is that daughter of yours The other day she startled you with tho question: "Mother, would you let nle go into the slums and do settle ment work? I am sure I could do a lot of good." Why did you not give your consent? There are your two chil dren with very little urging ready to five themselves up to Christian work. You profess to believe that the Chris tian life Is the happiest of nil lives. Are you any dlfTercnt In your am bitions for your children from the men and tho women of the world In refer ence to their children? I wns nilglAlly Impressed with this fact the other day when attending a missionary meeting. I think that without nny doubt the best women of j rtK,,,,rtU t m n 4 U L i , 7, T V ' .

She was not only the most beloved, but without doubt the most brilliant lady I nneaker I have ever heard In Cnllfor. nla. For some years she had labored In Asia, and then she returned to her own country on account of broken down health. Her health having been restored, she heard of a little mining amp In one of our western states where there was no Young Woman's Christian association established. She Blso heard that lu this rough mining camp quite u number of young girls bad gone wrong because they hud no ono to look after them. Ko this bril liant young woman volunteered to go to that mining camp nnd care for those young girls. We were bidding her goodby. She went without a dollar of salary and entirely aloue. She left all her friends nnd ussoclutlons behind. As I looked nt tho well dressed ladles I nt that reception, who came from some of the best families in the city, I said, "I wonder how many of us would be glad to surrender our daughters to (lod's service and have them do what that young woman is going to do?" Oh, my friends, It Is so easy to cry In holy raptures over the sacrifices Christian heroes nnd heroines hnvo made for the Master, but the great question for us to decide Is, How nre wo different fioni the men of tho world In our nmbltlons and hopes for our children? Are we really different In our households from tho publicans nnd the Pharisees? Becoming a Christian is something moro than merely signing your uamo upon the church roll. It menus this: Are you willing In the homo, In tho store, In your patriotism nud In your soclnl Intercourse with your fellow men absolutely to surrender your life to Christ nnd live first nnd last nud all the time for his glory and the good of mankind? That Is n very wide, sweeping promise to mnlte, but that Is what Christ wants you to do. Are you ready to make your public profession amount to something? Are you ready to make it amount to somethlug now? tCopyrleht, 1907, by Louis Klopsch.) Spoctaeular Mourning. "Spectacular mourning," says Dr. Max Keldncr In n Berlin paper, "Is an Amerlcnn weakness. The big black bordered mourning advertisements in which wo indulge nre not to be seen cards or send messages of condolence Much display Is mado In this way.

The late discoveries of Rrugsch Bey In connection with tho Hgyptlnn hiero glyphics vchlch he deciphered are tho subject of an article In tho Oester reichlsche Woehenschrlfr, In which the writer snys that It Is no longer difficult to understand the origin of the "seven lean j cars" narrated In the book of Genesis.' The Inscriptions as trans lated by Brugseh Miow that 1,700 years before the Christian era the Nile for seven consecutive years did not over flow, und famine, pestilence and mis ery followed. "We know," says the writer, "thnt the date of tho seven years of frultlossncss mentioned In Genesis was 1700 B. C, and thus what has been looked upon as a fancy has through these hieroglyphics become a matter of history. The failure of the Nile to overflow, the withering of the vegetation, the lauds devoid of crops, famine nnd the consequent scourges are all depicted In the pictures whirh the student has been nl.le to decipher." Why Jewesses Marry Gentiles. A writer In the Jewish World, Lon don, who signs hert-elf "A Jewess Girl," Is of tho opinion that blame for much of the marrying that goes on be tween Jewish girls and men of other faiths and against which the chief rabbi recently Inveighed Is to be laid at the door of the Jewish young man. It Is alleged by the "Jewess Girl" that the average middle class Jewish youth Is outrageously spoiled by his family and theicfoie sets an excessively high value upon himself, which does not conduce to the establishment of friend ly relations between himself and girls of his own class. Moreover, It is said, the Jewish young men are not content to start their married lives in simple fashion and therefore usunlly require to marry where money Is, If not ac tually for money. American Israelite. Back to the Farm.
