But as eographers tell us that the depths of the sea correspo d a Ith the belghtI of the menaltals, I have to tell von that good wonaanhood is deep down. The grinder the palace, the more awful the conllagration that destroys tt. Thegrander the steaser Oreon, the more terrible her goilr down just off the oat. Now I ahould not wonder if yoa trem bled a little with a searse of respoiblitty when I say that there is hardly a person in this bhoua bhat may have an opporluuity to save a woman. It msy I your case be doue by grood advice, or by Inaneial help, or by trtfg to brilang to bnear me one ot a thousand Christian lalamences You would not hare to go far.

There is another exploit that you can do, and that is to save a child. A child does not seem to amount to much. It is nearly a year old before it can walk at alL For the first year and a half it cannot speak a word. For the first ten years It would starve If it had to earn its own food. For the first fifteen years its opinion on any subject is absolutely valueless And then there are so many of them. My! what lots of childrenl And some tt.ople have contempt for chill dren. They are good for nothiang but to sear out the carpets and break things and keep you awake nights crying. Well, y uar .-tinate of a child is quite different from that another's estimllate who lost her child this summer. They took it to the salt air of the seashore and to the tonic air of the inounta!ns, but no help came. adl the brief tara;rratlh of its life is endedL. uppose that lie ,could be restored byv purchase, how much wnU,, that bereaved mother girde She would t e all the je aels from her inogers nalo I eck and bureau anil put them down. Anti If toll that that was not enough, she would take her house and make over the deed for it. andl if that were not enough, sh, wa,ull call in al her investments and put doawn all her natrgages and bonds; and if to:il that were not enough, she would say: 'I hnave lmade over all my lroperty, and if I can have that child back I will now pledge, that I will toil with any own hands and car tv w:th my own shoulders in any kind of liard work and live In a cellar and die in a garret. ()lily give me bak that lost darling." I ant glad that there are those who know something of the value of a child. Its pos sbi:ittes are tremendous. What will those halnds yet do! Where will those feet let a alia Toward what destiny will that never dying noul betake itself Shall those lps bhe the throne of blasphemy or henedictionl ('cm-', a; ye surveyors of the earth,and brlng link and chain anud easure If you can its pIrsible. possessions.

Come, all ye chronolo gists, and calculate the decades o u decades, the centuries on centu ries, the cycles on cycles, the eter ui:tes on eternities of its lifetime. Oh. to save a child! Aut I not right in putting that amongla the great exploitst Yesa. it beats the other two, for if you save the child vyou save the- uiau ,ar you save the woman. (let the tist twenty years of that boy or girl all right, andal I gues son have trot manhood or woman loa,I all right, and their entire earthly and etrrnal eracar all right. But what are %ou co aig to do with those children who are worse all than If their mother had died the day they werae borni there are tens of thousands of ac;la. 'Their parentage was against them. hellir nalmle is against thema. The structure iof their skulls against theb.

The tirst greeting they get from the world is to be it.ael a brat or a ragamuffnlo or a wearf-rat. 1W'hat to do with thena is the question often a-ietd. There Is another question quite as ertinielt, and that is, what are they going to ido with us: They will ten or twelve years fromu now have as many votes as the same nuaaber of wel:-torn children. and they will hand this land over to anarchy and po-ltical t:tainnautIon jlust as sure as we neglect them. ru;ip.,-e we each one of us save a boy er save a t: rl.

Inut how shall we get ready for one or all of these three exploitsl We shall make a dead failure If In our own strengtht we try to save a man or woman or child. But my text suggests where we are to get equipment. "The people that do know their God shall be strong, and dio exploits." We must know Himu through Jesus Carist in our own salvation and then we shall have His help into the salvation of oth er=. And while you are saving strangers you masy save some of your own kin. You think your brothers and sisters and children alll grandchildren all safe but they are not dead and no one is safe till he is dead. On the English coast there was a wild storm and a wreck in the offing and the cry was: "Man the lifeboat." But Harry, the usual leader of the sailors' crew, was not to be found, and they went without him and brought back all the shipwrecked people except one. By this time Harry, the leader of the crew, appeared anl sam: "Why did you leave that onle!" The answer was: "He could not help him self at all and we could not get him Into the boat'" 'Man the lifeboat," shouted harry, "and we will to for that one." "No," said his aged mother standing by. "you nmust not go. I lost your father In a storm like this, andu your brother Will went off asx rears ago and I have not beard word from Will since he left, and I don't know where he is, and I don't know what has happened to him,pour Will.and I cannot let you also go for I am o'd anad de pendent on you." Ills reply was: "Mother, I amust go and save that one man, and if I am lost God will take care of you in your old days." The life boat put out, and after an awful struggle with the sea they picked the poor fellow out of the rigging just In time to save his Ilre, and started for the shore. And as they came within speaking distance liar rr, just wefore be fainted from the over-exer tiao, cried out: "We saved hinm and tell mothe.r it was brother WilL" Oh. yes, my friends let us start out to save some one for time and eternity, some man, sne woman, some child.
