No wonder that Christ, years lifter, preach
ing on a great cestwian and iUuBtratinji
hhi own Bhephe.nl (jiuilkie, Hiiyn: "WLen
lio pullet k forth his own sheep ho ot th
before them, and tho sheep follow him, or
tliey know his voice, and tho strmif?cr they
will not follow, for tliey know not tlio volca
of tho utrniiKcr." , Tho. stiles of these, hills
arc terraced for gr:ipe.s. Tlio boy Christ
had often etood with gre.it round eyes
watching tho trimming of the grapevines.
Clipl Koes the knifo and ofl falls a branch.
The child Christ says to the farmer, "What
1o you do that for?" "Oh," Bays tho farm
er, "that in a dead branch and it is doinj?
liot.hinn and i.s only in tlio way, so I cut it
i(I." Then tho farmer with his sharp knife
pruneH from a living branch this and that
tendril and the other tendril. "But," says
the child Christ, "these twis that you cut
off now are not dead; what do you do that
tori" "Oh," nays tho farmer, "wo prune
off theso that tlio main branch may have
more of tho sap and bo ho more fruitful."
Ko wonder in lifter years Christ said in las
nermon: "I am tho true vino nnd my fat her
Is tho husbandman; every branch in mo
that benreth not fruit ho tuketh away, nnd
every brunch that beareth fruit ho purgeth
it, that it may brin forth more fruit."
Capital! No one who had not been a country
boy would have said that.
ritrenks of naturo all through Christ's
sermons and conversations! When a pijeeon
descended upon Christ's head at his bap
tism in tho Jordan it was not tho tint
pigeon f' 'il R1t'n- Atl(' l'ien K"c1,
, wide sweep of discourse as you may ima.i?
ino from one wlio low stood ou (lie hills
. tlmt'ovcrlookNa'.areth. As far as I under
stand, Christ visited the Mediterranean
sea only once, but any clear morning be
could run u on a bill near Nazareth and
look oft to tho west and see tho Mediter
ranean, while tliero in the north is snowy
Mount Lebanon, clad as in white robe of as
cension, and yonder on the east and south
east Mount (iilboa, Mount Tabor and
Mount (illead, nnd yonder in the south is
the plain of K.ailruelon over which we rode
yesterday ou our way to Nii.nri-t ii. Those
mount alim of his boyhood in his memory,
do you wonder that C.'liri.it when ho wanted
a ood pulpit made it out of a mountain
"seeing tho iiiiiltilitd") lie went up into
tho mountain." And when he wanted es
pecial eommunion with Cod ho took James
mid John and lVter into "a mountain
npnrt."
HE WAS A COl'NTIiV nov.
Oh, this con I dry boy of Nazareth, come
forth to nt one, for t ho sins of tlio world,
and to correct the follies i f the world, and
to stamp out tliecruiili s of the world,
and to illumine the darkness of the world,
and to Iranstiuure thy hemispheres! So it
ba.s been tho mission of the country hoys
In all ii;esto trnu.vform and inspire and
rescue. They come Into our merchandise
and our court rooms and our lienliiiK art
and our studios and our theology. They
lived in Nazareth before t hey entered Jeru-
wilem. And but for that annual influx
our cities would have enervated and sick
ened and slain Cue race, l.nto hours and
hurtful apparel and overtaxed digestive
organs nnd crowding environments of city
life would have halted the world; but the
valleys nnd mountains of Xa.areth bavo
i;iveu fresh supply of health nnd moral in
vlKoratfoU to Jerusalem, and the country
naves the town. From tho hills of New
Jlampshlro imd tho l.iils of Virginia and
I ho liiils of Oorariacome, Into our national
eloquence the Weh-.ters and the Clays nnd
the Henry W. Cr.nlys. From the plain
homes of Massachusetts and Maryland
come into our national charities thetleoro
J'eabodvs nnd the William Corcoran.
J'rum tiie cahinsiif the lonely country ro-(-ions
come into our nu iunal destinies the
Andrew JacKsons and the Abraham Lin
colus. From plow hoy's furrow and vil -la(.;e

nnd others have no horns. "No," said the

mean that I will not believe anything I

Kyman, "you will not lielieve anything
you have not seen. Have you a backbone:'"
"yes," said tho s!.-ertic. "How do you
knowf" said tho clergyman. "Have you
overseen it?" This mystery of God head
nnd humanity interjoiiied I cannot under
stand and I cannot explain, but I. believe
it. I um glad there are no many things we
cannot understand, for that leaves' some
thing for heaven. If we knew everything
here heaven would bo n (Treat indolence.
What foolish people those who nro in per

all thnt God says und doe.sl A child in the
first Juvenile primer iniyht as well hurst
into tears because it cannot understand
conic sections. In this world wo are only
in tho A IJ C class, and wo cannot nojv un
derstand the libraries of eternity which
put to utmost test faculties mvhungclic. I
would be ashamed of heaven if wo do not
know more there, with till our faculties in
tensified a million fold and at t he center of

CAS A IS OAI.TLKK.
In about two hours we pass through
Cana, the village of Palest ino wherotho
mother of Christ mid our Ixird attended
tho weddin;; of n poor relative, having
corao over from Nazareth for til at purpose.
Tho mother of Christ for women nro first
to notice such things found that the pro
visions had fallen short nml sh.o told
Christ, and lio to relievo the embarrass
ment of tho housekeeper, who had invited
more Kttests than the pantry warranted,
became tho butler of the occasion, and out
of a cluster of a few sympathetic words
squeezed n beverage of a hundred and
twenty-six gallons of wine in which was
not one drop of intoxicant, or it would
have left that party as maudlin and drunk
ns tho great centennial banquet in New
York, two years ago, left senators, and
governors, nnd generals, and merchant
princes, the iliirerenee between the wine
at tho welding in Cana and the wine at
the banquet in New York being, that the
Lord nude, the ono nnd the devil made the
other. We got oil' our horses and examined
some of these water jars nt Cana said to be
tlie very ones that held the plain water
that Christ turned into tho purple bloom
of nil especial vintage. I measured them
nnd found them eighteen iueliej from edge
to edge and nineteen inches deep, nnd de
clined to accept their identity. Cut we
realized the immensity of a supply of a
hundred and twenty. six gallons of wine.
What was that for? Probably one gallon
would h ive been enough, lor it was only
nu additional installment of what had al
ready been provided, and it is probable
that t he kousckeep; rcould not haveguessed
more than one gallon out of the way. Hut
a hundred and t went y-'iix gallons! What
will they do with the surplus? Ah, it was
Just like our Lord! Those young people
were about to so art in housekeeping and
their means were limited, and that big
supply, whether kept in Ufeir pantry or
sold, will be n nighty help.
You see theie vva.i no strychnine or log
wood or mix voiiiieasii that, beverage, and,
as the Lord made it, it would keep. Ho
makes mount aim and that k''op thou
sands of years, and ctrtainly ho could
make n beverage that would keep four or
live years. Among 1 he arts an I invent ions
of the I uturo I hope t her.' may L someone
that can press I l.e juieis from t ho grape
and so mingle 1 hem and v, ii hour one drop
of damning alcoholism (hat i!. will keep
foryiars. And tie- move of if. you take
the clearer iiiil bo the brain and the
healthier the stomach. And lure is a re
niarkiil.l.! fact in my rea-nt journey I
traveled through Italy mid Greece and
Fgypt and Pal. st.ine and Syria and Tur
key, and how many intoxicnied people do
you fltink I saw in all tho.-e li-e great
n alms? Not one. We must in our (.'hi-is-ti.uitVM'd
lands have got ho! I i i'smiio kind
of beverage that Christ did not make,

ct titaek basalt We dismount, and ciuiiliing
to the highest peak look out ou nn e n
chantment of scenery that seems to the
beatitudes themselves arched into skies
and rounded into valleys nnd silvered into
waves. The view is like that of Tennessee
nnd North Carolina from tho top of look
out mountain, or like that. of Vermont and
New Hampshire from the top of Mount
Washington. Hail hills of Galilee! Hail
Lnlco Gennesaret, only four miles away!
Yonder, clear up and most conspicuous, is
Safed, the very city to which Christ point
ed ror iilustnitiim in the sermon preached
here saying, "A city set on a hill cannot be
bid." Thero are rocks around mo on this
Mount of Peat itudes enough to build tiie
highest pulpit tho world ever saw. Ay,
It is the highest pulpit. It overlooks nil
time and all eternity.
Tim valley of llattin between here and
Lake Galilee is an amphitheatre, ns though
the natural contour of the earth had in
vited all nations to come nnd sit down ami
hear Christ preach a sermon in which there
were more startling novelties than were
ever announced in nil tlio sermons that
were ever preached. To those who heard
him ou this very spot his word must have
seemed tho contradiction of everything
that t liey had ever heard or read or experi
enced. The world's theory had been:
Blessed are tho arrogant; blessed nro the
supercilious; blessed nrehe tearless; bless
ed are they that have everything their own
way; blessed ore tlio war eagles; blessed
are the persecutors; blessed are the popu
lar; blessed are the Herods nnd thoCa-sars
and the Aliabs. "No! no! no!" saysChrb t,
with a voice that rings over t lteo rocks
nml through yonder valley of Hattiu, and
down to the opaline lake on ono side, nnd
the sapphire Mediterranean1 on tho oilier,
nud across Ku rope in one way, and across
Asia in the other way, and nrouud tho
earth both ways, till the globe shall yet bo
girlded with tho nine beatitudes: Hlessed
are the poor; blessed nro tho mournful;
blessed are the meek; blessed are the htiii
pry; blessed are tho merciful; blessed nro
tho pure; blessed are tho peacemakers;
blessed nre the persecuted; blessed are the
falsely reviled.
Do you see how tho Holy t,and and tho
Holy Hook lit each othcrP God with his
left hand built Palestine nnd with his right
wrote tho Serhittires, the t.vo hands of tho
same being. And in proportion ns Pales
tine is brought under close Inspection, the
Pible will be found more glorious and more
true. Mightiest book of tho past! Mighti

An a euro for every c lass of Nervous Diseases, no remedy has heon able
to compare with the Nervino Tonic, which is very pleasant and harmless in
all its eii'octs upon tho youugest child or the oldest and most delicate individ
ual. Nine-tenths of ail tho ailments to which the human family is heir, ara
dependent on nervous exhaustion v nd impaired digestion. When there is an
insuliicient supply of nerve food in tho blood, a general stato of debility of
the bruin, Fpinal marrow and nerves is the result. Starved nerves, liko
Etarved inutcles, become firong when tho right kind of food is supplied, and
a thousand weaknesses and ailments disappear as tho nerves recover. A3 tho
nervous sys tern must supply all tho power by which liio vital forces of tlio
body are carried on, it id tho rct to suffer for want of perfect nutrition.
Ordinary food does not contain n sufficient quantity of tho kind of nutriment
necessary to repair tho wear our present mode cf living and labor imposes
upon the nervrs. For this reason it becomes necessary that a nerve food bo
fupplied. This recent prod action of the South American Continent has been
found, by analysis, to contain, tlio essential elements out of which nerve tissuo
in formed. This accounts for it3 magic power to euro all forms of norvoua
derangement.''.
