"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

and the npparel and tbe habits, and

life is a tax upon brain and nerve and
general health absolutely appalling, If
there be no divine alleviation.

Put all tbe business of onr cities,

they sell less than SlOO.uOO worth of

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
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

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

ire ordinary, thank God that you are

and bored almost to death with ex

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.

tbey are misrepresented and abused

be to be a candidate for governor of

when he reads tbe blessed newspapers.
The weather of life is not so severe

The world never forgives a. man who

the great dellevers of the world have
ill come from such a home. And there
may be seated, reading at yoijr even

will find tbey nearly all came from

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.
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
