THE WATERS OF MEROJI.
(Continued from Recor.d I'?m lntrnmt'ilU'piui8 nil around the city wn.li on the first day, and a faili'ru. Not so Jttuch as a piece of pl.-ister broke loose from the wall; not so inurh us a Ioom iicjI rook, Dot no much ns a pieco of mortar lost from Its place. "Thcie," say the unbelieving Israelites, "didn't I tell you bo? Why, thowe ministers are fools. The idea of go lug around the city -.villi thnso musiciil in Btrumcnts, ami expecting in that wr.y to destroy 111 Joshua bus been Bpoiled; he thinks because lie lina overthrown and de stroyed the spring freshet he can over throw the stone, wall. Why, It is not phil osophic. Don't you see there is no relation bet ween the blowing of these musical iu etnunents and the knocking dowa of the wall? It isn't philosophy." And I sup pose there were many wiseacres who stood with their brown knitted and with the forefinger of tho right hand to the fore finger of tho left baud arguing it all out and showing that it was not possible that uch a cause could produce such an effect. And I suppose that niht in the encamp ment there was plenty of philosophy and caricature, ami if Joshua had been nomi nated for any high military position, ho would not l.ii.ve got many votes. Joshua's stock was down. The second day the priests blowing the musical in struments go around the city, and a fail ure. Third day, and a failure; fourth day, and a failure; fifth day, and a failure; sixth day, and a failure. The seventh day comes, the climacteric day. Joshua is up early in the morning and examines the troops, walks all around about, looks at the city wall. The priests start to make the circuit of the city. They go all around Once, all around twice, three times, four times, five times, six times, seven times, and a failure. There is only ono more thing to do, and that is to utter u great shout. I see the Israelitish army straightening themselves up, lilling their lungs for a vociferation isuch as was never heard before and never heard after, Joshiri feels tha the hour has come, and ho cries to his host, "Shout, for the Ixml hath given you the city!" All the people begin to cry, "Down, Jericho! down, Jericho!" And the long lino of solid masonry begins to quiver, and to move, and to rock. Stand from under! fho falls! Crash! go the walls, tho tem ples, the towers, tho palaces, the air black ened with the dust! 'i'lio huzza of tho vic torious Israelites and tho groan of the conquered Canaanites commingle, and Joshua Htuuding there in the dehris of the wall hears a voice saying, "There shall not any man be aide to stand before theo all the days of thy life." ONLV HAHAD'S IIOFSK PPATsr.U. Only one house spared. Who lives there? Some great king? No. Some woman dis tinguished for great kindly deeds? No. ;8he had been conspicuous for her crimes. It is the house of Kalian. Why was her houso spared? Ueyauso she had been a great .sinner? No, but liecaiwu slio repent d, demonstrating to all the ages thatthore Is mercy fcr the chief of sinners. The red cord of divino injunction reaching from lier window to tho ground, so that when the pooplo saw t hat red cord they knew it was the divino indication they should not disturb the premises, making us think of the divine cord of n Saviour's deliverance, the red cord of a Saviour's kindness, the rod cord of a Saviour'. i.:etvy, the red cord of our rescue. Merry To,' the chief of sin ners, l'ut your trust in that t!od, and no lamago shall befall you. When our world nhall bo more terribly surrounded than was Jericho, even by the trumpets of the Judgment day, ami tho hills and the moun tains, tho metal bones and ribs of nature nhall break, they who have had Kahub's faith shall linvo Kahub's deliverance. When, wrapt iti lire, the reulnis of ellier j;lov, And HeaveirH lust lliicitlcr shakes lluu'tii-ili below; Thou, unliHiimye!, shall o'er tli( ruins smile, Am! light thy torch lit N.Huru's funeral pile. Hut Joshua's t n. ops may not halt here. The command is, "Forward, inarch!" There is tho city of Ai; it must, be taken, llow shall it be taken? A. scouting, party comes back and .says, "Joshua, we can do that wit bout you; it. issuing to be a very easy job; you just stay bore while wo go and capture it." They march wit h asmall regiment in front of tho city, The men of Ai look at them and givo one yell, and tho Israelites run like reindeer. Tho northern troops at Dull Kun did not make such rapid tiino as these Israelites with tho C'anaanitcs after them. They never cut uch a sorry ligure as when they were on the ret rent. Anybody t hat goes out in the battles of (led with only half a force, in Htead of your taking the men of Ai, the men of Ai will take you. Look at tho church of tied on the retreat. Tho IJor Iieslau cannibals ate tip Malison, the missionary. "Kail back!" said a great many Christian people. "Kail back, O church of (lod! lidineo will never be taken. Don't you see t ho' Iiornesian can nibals have eaten up .Miiuson, the mis.sion ry?" 'J'yndal I delivers his lecture nt 1 bo University of Glasgow, and a great many ood people siiv: "Fall buck, I) church of Ciodl Don't you see that Christian philoso phy is going i be overcome by worhiiy philosophy? Fall back!" tieology plunges its crowbar into the mountains, and there are a great many people who say: "Scien tific Invest igat ion is goiii; to overthrow the Mosaic account of tho creation. Full back!" Friends of tin! church have never had any l ight to fall back. JOSHIA IS cilAtilUNKIl. Joshua falls on his face in chagrin. It is tho only time you ever see the back of his head. lie falls on his face and begins to whine, and he says: "Oh, Lord tlod, where fore hast thou at all brought tl.h people over Jordan to deliver us into the hand of the Amorites to destroy us? Would toCod we had been content and dwelt on tho tither side of Jordan! For t he Canaanit es and nil the inhabitants of the land shall bear of it, and shall environ ns round and cut olT our name from the earth." I nm very glad Joshua said that. He fore it seemed as if ho were a supernatural being, and therefore could not lie nn ex ample to us; but I find hi' is a man, he is only a man. Just n soniet imes you find a man under severe opposit ion, or inn bad Htateof physical health, or worn out w ith overwork lying down and si :hing about everything lielng defeated. 1 nm encour aged w hen I hear this cry of Joshua ns bo lies in the dust. tiod conies and rouses Mm. How does lie rouse him? Oy complimentary apos trophe? No. He kivs: "(u t thee up. Wherefore liist. thou upon thy face" Joshua rises, mid I warrant you with a mortified look, hut lii cbl c.u.ra jti comes back. Tho fact wait that v.-n.. not his bat tle. If lie had been in it he would have gone on to victory. lie fratliers his troop around htui an I s 5", ' Vov, lei us go up and capture the city of Ai; lit us go up right away." They man h on. He pu!s the majority of the troops behind a led -e of roi ks in the night, and then ho scuds comparatively email regiments up in front i f the city. The men of Ai come out wit b a shout, Tho mull regiments of Israelite- in s!r.ita':c:u fclil bark ' fail hack, un.l u hi n nil the men of Ai have left tlieiity an I are in pur 11 it of these M'attcred, or f. eir.ingly scat tered, regiments Joshua Mauds on rock I nee Ms loiks Pwm; in i"m wind ns he siints h; rpciir toward lbs doomed city, and that U tlni.:ivj.

Ami while I nee Iheciirlingdimike of lht destroyed ;: on the kr, ami r bile i lieur the hu;.- or tho Israelites, nnd the groan of the Ca naanites, Joshua hears something louder than it all, ringing and echoing through bis soul, "There shall not tiny man lie able to stand before thee all the davs of thy life." OM TO THE CITT OF GIBEON. IJut this Is no place for the host of Joshua to stop. "Forward, march!" cries Joshua to the troops. There is the city of Gibeon. It has put itself under the pro tection of Joshua. They sent word, "There are five kings after us; they are going to destroy us; send troops quick; send us help right away." Joshua has a three days' march at more than doublequick. On tho morning of tho third day he is before the enemy. There are two long lines of battle. The battle opens with great slaugh ter, but the Canaauites soon discover some thing. They say: "That is Joshua. That is tho man who conquered the spring freshet and knocked down the stone wall and destroyed tho city of Ai. There is no use fighting." And they sound a retreat, and as they begin to retreat Joshua and his ho.it spring upon thorn like a panther, pursuing them overtho rooks; and as these Canaauites with sprained ankles and gash ed foreheads retreat, tho catapults of the sky pour a volley of hailstones into the valley, and all the artillery of the heavens with bullets of iron pound the Canaanites against tho ledges of Both-horon. "Oh!" says Joshua, "this is surely a vic tory." "But do you not see the sun is go ing down? Those Amorites are going to get away after all, and then they will come up some other time and bother us, and perhaps destroy us." See, the sun is going down. Oh, for a longer day than has ever been seen in this climate! What is the matter with Joshua? Has he fallen in an apoplectic fit? No. He is in prayer. Look out when a good man makes the Lord his ally. Joshua raises his faco, radiant with prayer, and looks at tho descending sun over Gideon and at tho faint crescent of the moon, for you know tho queen of the night sometimes will linger around the palaces of the day. Pointing one baud at the descending sun and the other at the faint crescent of the moon, in the name of that God who shaped the worlds and moves the worlds, he cries, "Sun, stand thou still upon Gibeon; and thou moon, iu tho valley of Ajtilou." They halted. Whether it was by refraction of the sun's rays or by tho stopping of the whole plan etary system I do not know and do not caro. 1 leave it to' the Christian scientists and the infidel scientists to settle that question, while I tell you I have seen the same thing. "What!" say you, "not the Bun standing still?" Ves. The same mir acle Is performed nowadays. The wicked do not live out half their day, and the sun sets at noon. But let a man start out in bill t lo for God and truth and against sin, and the day of his usefulness is prolonged and prolonged and prolonged. THMK WOItK REMAINED. John Summerfhhl was a consumptive Methodist. Ho looked fearfully white, I nm told, as ho stood in old Sands Street church iu Brooklyn preaching Christ, and when lie stood on thonnniversary platform in New York pleading for the Biblo until unusual and unknown glories rolled forth from that book. When lie was dying his pillow was brushed with the wings of the angel from the skies, the messenger that God sent down. Did John Summerfiold's Kim set ? Did John Suminerflcld'sday end? Oh, no. He lives on in his burning utter ances in behalf of the Christian church. Kobert McClieyne was a consumptive Presbyterian. It was said when he preached ho coughed so it seemed as if ho would never preach again. His name is fragrant in all Christendom, that name mightier today t han was ever his living presence, lie lived to preach the gospel in Aberdeen, Edinburgh and Dundee, but, lie went nwny very early. Ho preached himself into the grave. Has Kobert McCheyne's sun set? Is Kobert McCheyne's day ended? Oh, no! His dying delirium was filled wit li prayer, and w hen ho lifted his hand to pronounce the benediction upon his family, and the benediction upon his coun try, he seemed to say: "1 cannot die now; I w ant to live on and on. I want to start an inlliienee for the church that will never cease. I am only 'M years of ago. Sun of my Christian ministry, stand still over Scot laud." And it stood still. ItOW A CIIlilSTIAN CAN DIE, A longtime ago there was a Christian woman very consecrated, and sho had a drunken husband, and so on came the nii'lit of domestic trouble. She lost her children, and there came tho night of bo reavement. Sho was very ill, and there came t he night of sickness. Her soul de parted, and there came the night of death. Hut nil these nights of trouble and dark ness and sorrow and sickness were illu mined by the grace of tho Gospel, and peo ple e.-iuio many miles to seo how cheerfully a Christ ian could be sick and bow cheerful ly n Christ ian could die. The moon that il lumined that night of trouble was a rellec t Ion from the Sun of righteousness. In t lie last hour of that night t hat night of darkness and sickness and misfortune, as slio lifted her band toward heaven, those who stood nearest her pillow could hear the w hisper for she wanted to livo on in 1 lie irenei'at ions t hat. were to follow, conse crated to tlod; sh wanted to have an in lliienee long nflcr she had entered upon her eternal reward, aud while her hand was lifted and her lips were moving, those who flood nearest her pillow could hear her f;ay, " I hou moon, stand still iu the valley of Ajalon." Hut Joshua was not quite through. There was time for five funerals before t he sun of t hat prolonged day set. Who will preach their funeral sermon? Massillon preached tho funeral sermon over Louis XVI. Who will preach tho funeral ser mon of those live dead kings king of Jerusalem, king uf lb hron, king of Jar inulli, king of Lacliish, king of Kglon? Let it be by Joshua. What is his text? What shall be the epitaph put on the door of the tomb? "There shall not any man be able to stand before tteo all the days Oi thy life." Hut before you fasten up the door I waut five inoio kings beheaded nnd thrust in King Alcohol, King Fraud, King Lust, King Supiirstilion, King Infidelity. Ixst them be beheaded nnd hurl them in. Thcu fasten up the door forever. What shall the inscription and what shall the epitaph be? tor all Christian philanthropists of all ages are going to come and look at it. What, shall the inscription be? "There shall not any man be able to stand before theo all theilays of thy life." 1 1 M K roll JOi'lIUA TO tiO HOME. Hut It is time fr Joshua to go home. He is 110 venrs old. Washington went down tho Potomac, and at Mount Ver non i'o-ed his days. Wellington died peacefully at Apsley House. Now, where shall Joshua rest? Why, he is to have his greatest battlo now. After a hun dred and ten years he has to meet a king w ho has more subjects than all the present population of t he earth, his throne a pyramid of skulls, his parterre tho grave yards and the cemeteries of the world, bis chariot tho world's hearse the King of Terrors. Hut if this is Joshua's greatest battle, it is going to lie Joshua's greatest viCcry, He gathers his friends around him nnd c:ivcs his valedictory, and it is full i'f reminiscence. Young men tell what they arc going to do; old men toll what they have done. And as you have heard a grandfather or great-grandfather, seated by ihe evening lire, tell of Mon ino'iih or Yorktown. and then lift the cruu ii or stall' as i hough it vero a musket, t ligl.t a;:.; !!ov bow t lie old bi.uies were v.i., so Joshi.ii g. itheis his friends urou"" !iv:g coif h, aud he tvllt them the et.iry of vh.it he lis Ut-n through, and M he i ci their, hi- " hl-e bn k Knowing down en ln uriuklcil forehead, 1 wonder if (osl b is kept his pruauM) all the way (hri'-.ih. A lie l:e there he tells l!ie story one. two op three times you have beard oia people tell a story two or three times over and he answers: "Igotbewayof all the earth and not one word of the promise has failed, not on-3 word thereof has failed; all has come to pass, nut one word thereof has failed." And then he turns to his family as a dying parent will and says: "Choose now whom you will serve, the God of Is rael, or the God of the Amorites. As for me and my house we will servo the Lord. A dying parent cannot be rec'tless or thoughtless in regard to his children. Consent to part with them forever at the door of the tomb we cannot. By the cradle in which their infancy was rocked, by the bosom on which they first lay, by the blood of the covenant, by tho God of Joshua it shall not be. We will not part, we cannot part. Je hovah Jireh, we take thee ut thy promise. "I will be a God to thee aud thy seed after thee." Dead, tho old chieftain must be laid out. Handle him very gently; that sacred body is over a hundred und ten years of age. Lav him out, stretch out those feet that walked dry shod the parted Jordan. Close those lips which helped blow tho blast at which tho walls of Jericho fell. Fold the arm that lifted tho spear toward the doomed city of Ai. Fold it right over the heart that exulted when the live kings fell. But where shall we get tho burnished granite for the headstone and the foot stone? I bethink myself now. I imagine that for the head it, shall be the sun that istood still upon Gibeon, nnd for the foot tho moon that stood still in the valley of Ajalon.

As a cure for every class of Nen ous Diseases, no remedy has hcen able to compare with the Nervine Tonic, vhieh is very pleasant and harmless in 11 its effects upon the youngest child r the oldest aud most delicate individ ual. Nine-tentha of all the ailments 1 o -which tho human family is heir, are dependent on nervous exhaustion and impaired digestion. W'lien there is an (sufficient supply of nerve food in tha blood, a general ptato of debility of 4fie brain, spinal marrow and nerves J3 tho result. Starved nerves, liko starved muscles, becomo strong when tho right hind of food is supplied, and i thousand weaknesses and ailments d:s appear as the nerves recover. As tho icrvous system must tupply all tho power by which tho vital forces of tho body are carried on, it is tha first to guffcr for want of perfect nutrition. Ordinary food doesnotcontiiinaBufficlmt quantity of tho kind of nutriment necessary to repair the wear our present mode cf living and labor imposes upon tho nerves. For this reason it bi comes necessary that a nerve food bo supplied. Thisrecent production of tho South American Continent has been found, by analysis, to contain tho essential elements out of which nerve tissue is formed. This accounts for its magic power to euro all 011113 of nervous derangements. CBAWFOItDSVlIiB, IND., Aug. 50, 'SO.
