It creeps upon m unawares, "is thought
of death. It waits not for the welcome, It
in cr receives; but enters sans reremonie.
We put it far nway, indeed we can hardly
realize that it will ever mo to us in its
last reality ; yet the shadow finals back and
in vain we t trive to banish il. Not in au
tumn only, when nature die, but in the
virginal spring, "when the hours speed ,v
unnoticed 'mid the scenes too bright tn last,"
a voiie sttatige und wouderiid appeals to
the inner sense and whispers of death. On
the (Irey mart amid the recking life rolling
so fiercely together, wo accost a funeral,
sometimes and then tor a moment, think
of the low mute house to which all these
travelers arc hastening; ami of death lying
just the other side of its door. Nero, the
Greek Emperor, gazing amain the serried
ranks of men before him, weeping that in
one hundred years that palpitating mass of
life would bo but dust, ohey.i a natural im
pulse of the heart.
Through all our years a we walk "in the
valley of the shad w nf death" is It not
strange that sometimes we pause ami won
der, ami fear? Tin.' years. In their flight,
bear away the bloom und freshness of our
morning. The hiarious spting cannot
always renew the youth in our hearts.
With all she brings us, we feel that there
is leas of life in our veins than there was
last year. Serene may huve been aur
morning, dazzling our noon ; yet, we can
but pause and think of the night as wc
draw towards it. It is well ns wo should
not forget to lookup to the light of the
after morning. The thought of death will
not be eluded. It conies in the, hour of
triumphamid the time of business amid
the clang of battle amid the fever of am
bition. and then we feel the vanity of hu
man efforts and of human wjshes. Some
times disease seizes us, carries us down to
the brink of the dark river, and there de
posits us. Then we discover that time and
eternity have changed places. Eternity
hangs over us, dark, gloomy, certain, uw
fully defined. It no longer presents the
aspect of an allegory life has been. Afur
in the rear we delinathe slaving multitudes
of the world. Were wc ever one of that
Did we over give chase to such phan
toms t Were wu ever filled with the im
petuosity which impels each competitor foi
an earthly prize : We pray that death may
be withheld; that, we may instruct the liv
ing how to live. Sotnotimcb our Mipplira
tions are granted -- oftemvt not. We
return to the world-again eternity
rolls back- -again the soul ink
into va.saluge. Hut in our waking
hours- in the aim of the night watch,
when the stars their vigil keep -when
the cares which devoured the day have
taken wings - when the burden of life
seems to roll from our hearts from the feet
of night, and wo feel our nature growing
larger, then comes this thought of death.
In its light motives are despised, purjs
are weighed and found wanting: desire
are rejected, actions Condemned. Remorse,
perhaps, stalks in the hushed corridors of
the soul. Holy aspirations stud
into your heart, like breathings from a
world more divine. You wonder how you
have led !l sordid, selfi-h llf". You re
member the prayers breathed fervently
from ti dying mother's lip-. You are not
a-haiiied again to be a child. "1 will live
a nobler life to-morrow ; 1 will live nohier
always' 1 will obey God in my mciI." von
j Do you r- tain your vow ' When the tur
bUi' iit wuveot daily iile settles back u;ii
your i-oul. do you remember.' Think, then ;
think if it be so. Imk deep down into
t!:e precincts of yourS.eait and fat htm it
depths for "no one knowetli the day oi the
hour when the Son of man coineth."
The human oiee in its sweetrn-sA and
