awful process a hundred thousand men live
have been slaughtered for time and cor
slaughtered for eternity. N
Suppose you borrow. There is nothing cat
wrong about borrowing money. There is No
hardly a man in the house but has some- the
times borrowed money. Vast estates the
bave been built on a borrowed dollar. use
Itut there are two kinds of borrowed whl
money. Money borrowed for the pur- shr
pose of starting or keeping up legitimate ly y
enterprise and expense, and money bor- ser
rowed to get that which you can do with- the
out. The first is right, the other is wrong. nat

The Bible distinctly says the borrower of I
is servant of the lender. It is a bad state 2,
at things when you have to go down some sla
ather street to escare meeting some one aw
whom you owe. If young men knew what ma
is the despotism of being in debt, more of the
them would keep out of it. Whatdiddebt of
io for Lord Baoon. with a mind towering the
tbove the centuries? It induced him to aO
:ake bribes and convict himself as a crim- wil
nal before all ages. What did debt do Bec
?or Walter Scott? Broken-hearted at dea
Abbottsford! Kept him writing until his mi
sand gave out in paralysis, to keep the A4
sheriff away from his pictures and statu- el
ary. Better for him if he had mind'd the tin
maxim which he had chiseled over the fire- all
place at Abbottaford: "Waste not, want Ch
sot." Pa
The trouble is, my friends, the people No
to not understand the ethiclot going in ha
Jebt. and that if you purchase goods with wa
no expectation of paying for them, or go ga
nto debts which you can not meet, you to
just steal so much money. If I go into a de
grocer's store, and I buy sugars and cof- the
tees and meats, with no capacity to pay
'or them and no intention of paying for sh
them, I am more dishonest than if 1 go pa
;nto the store, and when the grocer's face ho
is turned the other way I fill my pockets yo
with articles of merchandise and carry yo
ff a ham. In the one case I take the to
merchant's time, and I take the time of pr
his messenger to transfer the goods to th
my house, while in the other case I take mn
none of the time of the merchant, and I pl
wait upon myself, and I transfer the co
goods without any trouble to him. In m
2ther words, a sneak thlef is not so bad Lb
uas a man whocontracts fordebts he never al
expects to pay. be
Yet in all our cities there are families au
that move every May day to get into prox- ge
imity to other grocers, and meat shops, d
and apothecaries. They owe every body of
within half a mile of where they now live, ca
and next May they will move into a dis
tant part of the city, anding a new lot of "1
victims. Meanwhile you, the honest fam- th
ily in the new house, asre bothered day by se
day by the knocking at the door of disap- Bi
pointed bakers, and butchers, and dry- on
goods dealers, and newspaper carriers, re
and you are asked where yoear predecessor th
is. You do not know. It was arranged of
you should not know. Meanwhile your ca
predecessor huas gone to some distant part of
of the city. and the people who have any th
thing to sell have sent their wagons and I8
stopped there to solicit the "valuable" ci
custom of the new neighbor, and he, the fe
new neighbor, with great complacency se
and with an air of aiuence, orders the lo
anest steaks, and the highest-priced w
eugars, and the best of the canned fruits, th
and, perhaps, all the newspapers. And ol
the debts will keep on accuumulating until C]
he gets his goods onth 30th of next April of
on the furnlture cart. of
Now let me say, if there are any such in
persons in the house, if you have any re- ty
gard for your own convenience you had 0
better remove to some greatly distant al
part of the city. It is too bad that, hav
tag had all the trouble in consuming the te
goods, you should also have the trouble tl
of being dunned. And let me say that if h
yotu ind this picture your own photo. h
graph, instead of being in ohurch you re
ought to be in the penitentiary. No won- h
der that so many of oaur merchants fail in p
business. They are swindled into bank- u
ruptcy by these wanderiftg Arabs, these a
nomads of city life. They cheat the gro- p
rcer out of the green apples which made h
them sick, the physician who attends a
their distress, and the undertaker whe
fits them out for departure from the b
neighborhood where they owe every body
when they pay the debt of nature, the 1
only debt they ever do pay. a
Now our young men are coming up in y
this depraved state of commercial ethacs, a
and I am solicitous about them. I want t
to warn them against being slaughtered I

many things yoea have not, my young

- We find it so very easy to doug wrong
ta and so hard to do right Lord, help us."
s, That prayer, I warrant you, reached the
ear of God, and reached his heart. And

rid One Sabbath morning, at the close of
ce my service, I saw a gold watch of the
lii world renowned and deeply lamented
in violinist Ole Bull. You remember- he
to died in his island home off the coast of
N0orway. That gold watch he had wound
h. up day after day through his illness, and
fa. then he said to his companion: "Now, I
in want to wind this watch as long as I can,
the and then when I am gone I want you to
or keep it wound up until it gets to my friead,
ils Dr. Doremus, in New York, and then he
ich will keep it wound up until his life sla
life dlone, and then I want the watch to go to
an, his young son, my especial favorite."
)p. The great musician, who more than any
all other artist had made the violin speak and
ox, sing and weep and laugh and triumph
for it seemed when he drew the bow
to across the strings as if all the earth and
theI Heaven trembled in delighted sympathy
on. -the great musician, tn a room looking
t of of upon the sea, and surrounded by his
of favorite instruments of music, eloed his
ait eyes in death. While all the world was
a- mourning at his departure, sixteen
crowdedl steamers fell into line of fumeral
rO rocession to carry his body to the main
re land. There were fiftty thousand of his
countrymen gathered in an amphitheater
ron of the bills waiting to hear the eulogium
the and it was said when the great orator o
ig- the day with stentorian voice began to
a speak, the ifty thousand people on the
lillsides burst into tears.
hat Oh! that was the close of a life that
lis- had done so much to make the world hap
sh. py. But I have to tell von, young man, if
of you live right aud die right, that was a
em tame scene compared with that which
une will greet you when from the galleries of
Heaven the one hundred and forty and
