AN EVERYDAY CHRIS!
la Um fellowiBi sermon Dr. Tal saaga .'(peak tc those whose work wttM noeoaspio lau place in th world. Ths text it Romaaa xvi, 14, 13 "8alaU Atyncrit as, Phlegon, Her mat, Patron, Hermes. Philologo and Jnlla." Matthew Ilenrr, Albert Barnes, Adam Clark, Thomas Scott and all tb commentator pans by these Terse without any capaclal remark. The other 20 peoplt mentioned la the chap ter were dlatlugulabed (or something, and were therefore discussed by the Illustrious expositors, but nothing it said about Asyncrltus, Phlegon, Her mas, ratrobas, Hermes, PhUologui and Jnlla. Where were they born? No one knows. When did they die? There Is no record of their decease. For what were they distinguished T Abso lutely nothing, or the trait of charac ter would bare been brought out by the apostle. If they had been rery Intrepid or opulent or hirsute or musi cal of cadence or crass of style or In any wine anomalous that feature would hare been caught by the apos tolic camera. But they were good people, because Faul sends to them his blgh Christian regards. They were ordlnnry people mortng In ordinary sphere, attending to ordinary duty and meeting ordinary responsibilities. What the world wants is a religion for ordinary iwople. If there be In the United States 70.000,000 people, there are certainly not more than 1,000.000 extraordinary, and then there are 69.000.000 ordinary, and we do well to turn our backs for a little while from the distinguished and con splruoti people of the Bible and con alder in our text the seven ordinary. We spend too much of our time In twisting pnilands for remarkable and ImlUllui; thrones for magnates, and sculpturing warriors, and apotheosis ing philanthropists. The rank and file of the Lord's soldiery need espec ial help. The vast majority of people will never load an army, will never write a state constitution, will never elect r I fy a senate, will never make nn im portant Invention, will never Intro duce a new philosophy, will never de cide the fate of a nation. You do not expect to; you do not want to. You will not be a Moses to lead a nntlon out of bondage. You will not be a Joshua to prolong the daylight un(ll .you tan shut fire kings In a cavern You will not be St John to unroll nn Apocalypse. You will not be a 1'aul to preside ever an apostolic col lege. You will not be a Mary to mother a Christ. You will more prob ably bo Asyncrltus or Phlegon or Iler nma or Patrobas or Hermes or Pbllo logus or Julia. Many of you are women at the head of households.- Every morning you plan for the day. The cullnnry department of the household is In your dominion... You decide all ques ' Hons of diet. 'All the sanitary regula tions of your house are under your supervision. To regulate the food, and the npparel and tbe habits, and decide the thousand questions of home life is a tax upon brain and nerve and general health absolutely appalling, If there be no divine alleviation. It does not help you much to be told that lillwilth Fry did wonderful things amid the criminals at New gate. It does not help you much to be told that Mrs. Judson was very brave ;nniong the Borneslan cannibals. It hIocs not help yon rery much to be! told that Florence Nightingale was I very kind to the wounded Jn the Crl-! men. It u-niilfl ha ttottr tn mg ' ell you that tbe dlrlne friend of Mary and Martha Is your friend, and that He sees all the annoyances and disap pointments and abrasions and exas perations of an ordinary housekeeper from morn till night, and from the 'first day of the year until the last day oT the year, and at your call He la ready with help sad re-enforcement. They who provide the food of the world decide the health of the world. You have only to ge on some errand amid the taverns nd the hotels of "the United States and Crest Britain to appreciate tbe fact that a vast mul titude of the human face are slaught ered by incompetent cookery. Though a young womsn may have taken les ''net In music and may nave taken les ma in painting and lessons la astron- omy.Ahe Is not well educated unless he baa taken lessons In dough! They who tfecld the apparel of tbe world tan tbe .Toed of the world decide the endurance tt the world. An unthinking man may consider It " matter of little Importance tbe Ares of the boasehoid and tbe ecoa--omles of domestic life but I tell yon the earth It strewn with tbe martyrs of k and Durssffjr.

Then there are all the ordinary busi ness men. They need divine and Christian help. When we begin to talk .Kan ft. attstrv wtwKS ASP and talk about men who did business. on a large scale, aad who sold Ions of dollars of goods a year, mUl, I and luv vast Hiajunay m vu,iyw, iw 7,,, ... . not sell a million dollars of goods, nor half a million, aor quarter of a mill ion, nor tbe eighth part of a million. Put all tbe business of onr cities, towns, villages and neighborhoods side , by side, and yon will find that they sell less than SlOO.uOO worth of goods. All these men in ordinary busi ness life want divine help. You see how the wrinkles are printing on the countenance tbe story of worriment and care. Yon cannot tell how old a business man la by looking at him. Gray hairs at 30. A man at 45 with the stoop of uonogenarlan. No time to attend to Improved dentistry, tbe grinders cease because they are few. Actually dying of old age at 40 or 60, when they ought to be at the meridian. Many of these business men have bodies like a ne glected clock to which you come, and whenjou wind It up It begins to buss and roar, and then the hands start around very rapidly, and then the clock strikes 5 or 10 or 40, and strikes without any sense, and then suddenly tops. So Is the body of that worn out business man. It is a neglected clock, and though by some summer recreation It may be wound up, still the machinery Is all out of gear. The bands turn around with a velocity that excites the astonishment of the world. Men cannot understand tbe wonderful activity, and there Is a roar and n buzz and a rattle about these disordered lives and they strike 10 when they ought to strike 5, and tbey strike 12 when they ought to strike 6, nnd they strike 40 when they ought to strike nothing, and suddenly they stop. Now, what Is wanted is grace, di vine grace, for ordinary business men, nieu who are harnessed from morn till night and all the days of their life harnessed In business. Not grace to lose $100,000, but grace to lose $10. Not grace to supervise 250 employees in a factory, but grace to supervise the bookkeeper and two salesmen and the small boy that sweeps out the store. Grace to Invest not the $80,000 of net profit, but the $2,500 of clear gain. Grace not to endure the loss of a whole shipload of spices from tbe Indies, but grace to endure a loss of a paper of collars from the leakage of a displaced shingle on a poor roof. Grace not to endure tbe tardiness cf the American Congress in paaslug a necessary law, but grace to endure the tardiness of an errand boy stopping to play marbles when be ought to de liver the goods. Such a grace' as thousands of business men have to daykeeping them tranquil, whether goods sell or do not sell, whether cus tomers pay or do not pay, whether tariff Is up or tariff Is down, whether the ciDpH are Itixuriaut or a dead fail ure calm in all circumstances and amid nil vicissitudes. That Is tbe kind of grace we want. Then there nre all tue ordlnnry fiirmers. We talk about agricultural life and we Immediately shoot off to talk about Clncinuatus, the patrician, who went from the plow to a blgh po sition. -and after be got through the dictatorship In 21 days went back nxuln to the plow. What encourage ment is that to ordlnnry farmers? The v.-iKt majority of them none of them will be patricians. Perhaps none of them will lie senators. If any of them hare dictatorships, It will De over 40 or 50 or 100 acres of tbe 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 tbe corn crc; and that enables tbem to restore the garden the day after the neigh bor's cattle have broken in and tram pled out the strawberry bed and gone through the Lima bean patch and eaten np tbe sweet corn in such large quantities that they must be kept from the water lest tbey swell up and rile. Those stone masons do not want to hnr about Christopher Wren, tbe ar chitect, who built St. rani's cathedral. It would be better to tell them bow to carry the bod of brick np tbe lad der without elippisg, and bow on a cold morning with tbe trowel to strotbe oft the mortar and keep cheer ful, and how to be thankful to God for tbe plain food taken from the standing amid the ads, and tbe bit. nod the plane and tbe broadax need to Ik told that Christ was a carpenter, with bis own band wielding saw and hammer. Oh, this la a tired world,' snd It la an overworked world, and It Is on, underfed world, and It 'Is a wrung out world, and men and women need to know that there Is rest aad re cuiieratlon la God aad I that reitgioa which waa not so much Intended for extraordinary people, because there are mors of them.

Come, now, let oa have a religion for srdlnary people' la professions, la oc upstlons, In sgricnltnre. In the house told. In merchandise. In everything. I lalute across the centuries Asyncrltus, Phlegon, Herman, Patrobas, Hermes, Phllologns and Jnlla. I First of ail. If yon feel that yon ire ordinary, thank God that you are let extraordinary. I am tired and sick and bored almost to death with ex traordinary people. Tbey take all their time to tell us how rery extraordinary tbey really are. You know as ws. as I do, my brother aad sister, thai tbe most of tbe useful work of the world Is done by unpretentious people who toll right on by people who do not jet much approval and no one seems to say, "That Is well done." Pheno mena are of but little use. Things that tre exceptional cannot be depended on. Better trust tbe smallest planet that wings In Its orbit than too comets shooting this way and that. Imperil ing the longevity of worlds attending to their own business. For steady il lumination better Is a lamp than a rocket. Then, If you feel that you are ordi nary, remember that your position In vites the less attack. Conspicuous peo plebow they have to take It! How tbey are misrepresented and abused tnd shot at! The higher the horns of a roebusk the easier to strike blm flown. What a delicious thing It must be to be a candidate for governor of State or President of the United States! It must be so soothing to tbe nerves, it must pour Into the soul of candidate such a sense of serenity when he reads tbe blessed newspapers. The weather of life is not so severe on the plain as it Is on tbe blgh peaks. The world never forgives a. man who knows or gains or does more than it ran know or gain or do. Then remember if you have only what Is called an ordinary borne that the great dellevers of the world have ill come from such a home. And there may be seated, reading at yoijr even ing stand, a child who shall be potent for the ages. Just unroll the scroll of nen might In church and state, aud you will find tbey nearly all came from og cabin or poor homes." Oenlus al most always runs 'ont to-' they third 'ourth generation? Yon cannot find In ill (ilstory an Instance where the 'ourth generation of extraordinary people amounts to anything. . In this ,?ounty we had two great lueafather tnd son, both presidents of the United States, but from present prospects there never will be in that genealogi cal lien another president for. a thou jiand years. Columbus from a wear 'r's hut, Demosthenes from, a cutler's I Teller, Bloomfleld and Missionary i Carey from a shoemaker's bench. Ark- wtight from a barber's shop and he whote ,8 D,Kh oyer a , eth tnd air and sky from a manger. Let us be content with such things is we have. God is just as good in what He keeps away from us ns In what he gives us. Even a knot may be useful if It Is at the end of a thread. At an anniversary of a deaf and dumb asylum one ef the children wrote upon the blackboard words as lubllme as the "Iliad," the "Odyssey" tnd the "Dlvina Commedia" all com pressed in one paragraph. The exam iner, In the signs of the mute lan guage, asked her, "Who made ' the world?" The deaf and dumb girt wrote upon the blackboard, "In the be ginning God created the heaven and tbe earth." The examiner asked her. "For what purpose did Chrttv come Into the world V Tbe deaf and dumb girl wrote upon the blackboard. "This is a faithful asylng, and worthy of all icceptatkm that Christ leans came Into the world to save sinners." The examiner said to her, "Why were you born deaf and dumb, while I hear and speak V She wrote upon the black board. "Even so, Father, for so It seemeth good In thy sight" Oh, that we might be baptised with a content ed spirit The spider draws poison out of a flower, the bee gets hooey out of thistle, but happiness a heavenly elixir, and the contented spirit ex tracts It not from the rhododendron of the hills .but from tbe lily of tbe valley.

BY "laslO." rooarrtgbte4MDsweTaher.l i AS TO .LINCOLN -Some of the towering personages of history -possibly lrom our ignorance of our daily lives seem more like demi-gods than men, and we simply marvel at them ; for if the tame ot a great man has elements in it tluit are walls before us instead of steps we peep at it like children from a distance, we long vainly for Its al titude, and we puss on neither aided nor encouraged. It is true , beyond dispute that-a touch of Nature makes us all kin, and like the un expected meeting of a beloved friend is the effect upon us of the great who have suffered as we have, worked long years unseen as we do, and triumphed in Borue measure' as we hope to Inst "VTe are cheered by them. In them we. discover the lineameuts of ordinary, approach able humanity: their foototeps were no longer than ours but eiimply al ways led forward, their hours were no more numerous than those allott ed to us but all were made to bend to a purpose, their hopes remained often unrealized like our Itut in reai'liing upward towards tlicmeatue sublimity to. the the lives that wc can safely admire and emulate. Among these who do not dis courage nor dazzle is our Lincoln. As the fierce light of the fevered hours in which lie stood unmoved, subsides into a gentle day whose pro gress is guiltless of insteruccinc strife, he shows forth ever more clearly as "the great commoner." lie is a living proof of a truth we too often doubt in our haste, that neither the lack of money nor of pedigree are enough to keep in sub jection those who "will" to shake themselves free from impediments, lie stauds as an encouragemcut to those who strive against discourging odds by glorifying the common place aft'uirs ot life into actual tests of character, and by throwing his full powers unreservedly into every task he takes up. He shows that the total expected of a man is that he should do the best he can : if a great man in a small place, by filling it to overflowing; if an un tried nmn in a great place, by filling it through the might and the growth that come from modesty, humility, teachableness. He is surely one with many, of us not occupied with proclaiming his .Vescnt, but having whereof to boost in his wevetit, not dandled bya luxurious mother throuch the proxy-love of hired arms, but nourished by' a rug ged woman ' under those strenuous circumstances that ' developed un sung heroes along every bridle-path of our enormous frontier. He is not bound within the limits of any creed of man's inventing, but throws out his bcoad soul into fellowship with those of nil nations who do man-service as tiocl-pleasers. lie does not stalk alonir in trloomy ab straction, but is ' hail-tel low" in a sunshiny way with all those weary and burdened ones to whom a laugh is more refreshing than new wine. He is not fulled with - thoughts of some future destiny, it is only on- loookers who see the destiny of a man. for he is content with the next step each time that it comes, no matter wnere it leads. He is not even superior to repining ami gloom, but from every hour of de pression he rises to fling the gage of Despair into the face of Fortune, daring her to the conflct. o a There is not one great modern character more thoroughly human than he is. In fact in his (lay small men reaching no higher than his ankles could see nothing but the mud on his shoes, and failed utterly to raise their eyes to the noble head, with its face seamed more than any man's throngh the frightful soul straining weight that' was laid by the people upon this man of the prople. As the ropes tall from a statue at the unveiling, so all his littleness -traits of a humanity kindred to yours and mine,' who tx often have no greatness to Vary our pettiness are no longer existent, and he stands before us as a great MAN. Without slavish imitation of this pine-knot student this flat-boat law ysr, this rwl-nUtting president, let us learn from film. It It a sign of greatness to do tie Bert 'tUnfe' thai comes to haai, without wietini time lonsiaz tot Cmtertlrfi&tod., to be eveflsifltfldbyCev.il. O larger than our task aodet cheer ful withal while doing it ; to be ready to acknowledge error in self and render, tiraise to tlroae who excel us ; to be magnanimous to those vlio bitterly thwart us in our noble purposes.
