You have, then, only by a sum in sub- ML

i's what are the employments of your departed do

subtract from them all earthly grossness do
and add all earthly goodness, and then you Na
are to come to the conclusion that they are fig
doing now in heaven what in their best ca
moment they did on earth. The reason ar
why so many people never start for heaven tri
is becausethey could not stand it if they of
got there if it should turn out to be the to
' rigid and formal place soise people photo-. lt
try graph it. We like to cone to church, but wl
we would not want to stay hers till next co

it all the time for fifty centuries. It might yi
be on some great occasion it would be possl- vi
bly comfortable to wear a crown o' gold tit
weighing several pounds, but it would be an as
afflletion to wear such a crown forever. In tit

the future world, but I must, by inevitable u
ore, laws of inference and deduction and common D

least as many different employments in the u

In the first place, I remark that all those 8
t of our departed Christian friends who on a
eled earth found great joy in the fine arts arenow h
Ikes indulging their tastes in the sa mine direction. n
On earth they had their gladdest pleasures I
amid pictures and statuary and in the study v
of the laws of light and shade and perspac- d
the tive. Have you any idea that that affluence e
atch of faculty at death col'apsed and perished? I
Why so, when there is more for them to look s

heir Raphael could improve upon his mister- I
piece of "Michael the Archanget" now that
he has seen him, and could improve upon

after he had seen its flash and heard the

et, and Holman Hunt and Rembrandt and Titian
and Paul Veronese, if they exercised saving
le faith in the Christ whom they portrayed
etc., upon the canvas, are painting yet, but their
they strength of faculty multiplied ten thousand.
I remark again that all our departed
Christian frlicands who in tils world were
passionately fond of musico are still regaling
that taste in the world oeles' al. The Bible
says so much about the musia~ of heaven that
on it cannot ail be figurative. Why all this talk
rs. about hal!elujahs and choirson the glass and
t trumpets and harps and oratorios and or
gans? The Bible over and overagain speaks
heof the songs of heaven. If heaven had no
and songs of its own. a vast number of those on
ompt earth would have teen taken up by the
tble earthly emigrants. Surely the Christian at
death does not lose his memory. Then there
tined must be millions of toeals in heaven who
know "Coronation" a.t "Antioch" and
"'Mount Pislgah" and "O:d Hundred." The
50 leader of the eternal orehlstra need on:y
Com- once tap his baton, and all heaven will be
years ready for the hallelujab.
If heaven shoula ever get out of music,
Thomas HIutings and Lowel Mason and
reak- Bradbury would start up a hundred old
orn- magnificent chorals. But what with the
hennew song that John mentions, and the varl
ous doxologies alludel to, and the importa
tion of sublunar harmonies, a Orhstian
ache fond of music, dying, will have an abund
ly 93 ance of regaldment. You must remember
that they have better instruments of music
or where they are. You ask me, "Do they

Again, I remark that those of our de- seret

had very strong military spirit are now in they

There are hundreds of people born solliers, and

at One of the perils of young men, especially
e- at the present time, is club drinking. Many I
young men who would be ashamed to be
seen drinking in the ordinary saloon are
tempted to this indulgence in the more so
leet and esthettoe environment of the club.
An old New York club man is quoted as say
the "The barroom makes drunkards. I wish I
could say that the purpose of the club wasto
, mako men sober, but as I cannot do so with
rs truth, I might as'#ell confess, among other
'ng things that the tendency of the modern club
the is to intensify the drink habit till it degen
erates, particularly with young men, into
r ? the disease of inebriety. 1 know of scores of
o promising lives-and so does every club man
of experience-that have been wrecked by
en- the opportunities for convivilality afforded
or .by clus. If the stewards of the leading
one clubs in any of our cities would confess to W
our the number of members they know to be
ug habitual drinkers, or rather habitual drunk
tuil ards,the report would startle the uninitiated."
one Friends of temperance, while laboring for O
PI'- the legal suppression of the saloon, should
rn also exert all possible moral power for the A
ina restraint and abolition of club drinking.
