eil rti:d at the foot of an embank
ment, amid the i.ruk of a rapaixed
rall lraln, proving by elaborate argu
ment that aomethlr.g la out of order.
Adam tumbled over the embankment

tumbling in the aame direction. Craah!

what leverage ran the truahed thing

fragment, be reconatructed? I want
to ahow you how we may turn many
to rlghteouaneaa, and what will be our
future pay for ao doing.
Klrat. We may turn tbem by the
charm of a right eiample. A child
coming from a filthy home waa taught
at echool to waah Ita fare. It went
home ao murh Improved In appearance
that Ita mother wnahed her fai-e. And
when the father of the hoiiaehold came
home and aaw the Improvement In

that the lift way to g t the world

Again: We may turn many to rlcht
foiuneaa by prayer. There la no am h
detMtlve aa prayer, for no one an
bide away fiom it. It put. It. band
on the ah. milter of a man tin thouaand
mllca i ff. It alight on a ablp ml.l
Atlantlp. The little child cannot i,
diratand the luw of elcctrlrlty, or how
the trb graph operator, by touching the
instrument here, may dart a meanagc
under the aea to another mutlnent;
nor i an we, wllh our amall intellect,
utideretan l bow the loin h of a I'hrla
tlan'a prayer ahall Inat.intly atrlke a
aoul on the other aide of the earth. Vou
take ahlp and r,) to eotue other country
and get there al eleven o'clock In the
morning. Vou telegraph to America
and the meaaage get a here at alx
o'rloek the aame m irnlng. In other
woida It lectin lo arrive here fl v
liouri before il ttartcd. Like that la
player, (iod aaya: "llefore they rail,
I will hear." To overtake a loved one
on the road, you may apur up a lather
ed ateed until he ahall outinie the one
that brought the new to Chenl; but
a prayer ahall catch ll at one gallop.
A hoy running away from home may
take the midnight train fiom the rou-.i-
, try village and reach the aeaport In
time to gain the ahlp that aaila on the
J morrow ; but a niolher'a prayer will
oe r.n ine ue( a o meet him,
the bamtmxk before he awlnga Into It,
and at the rnpatnn before he wind the
rope around, and on the aeg, agalnat
the aky, a the veaael plougha an
toward it. There la n mlghtlneai In
prayer. Ceorge Muller prayed a com
pany of poor boy together, and then
he prayed up an aaylum In which they
might be ahellered. He tunn el hla face
toward Kdlnliuigh and prayed and
there came a thouaand pound.. He
turned bla fare toward Dublin and
prayed, and there dime a thouaand
pound. The breath of KHJub'a prayer
Mew all the ilouda off the aky, and It
waa dry weather. The breath of Kll
Jah'a prayer blew all the ilouda to
gether, and It waa wet weather. Pray
er. In Daniel time, walked the cave
aa a llnn-tamer. It reached up. and
took the aun by Ita golden bit. and
etopped It, and the moon by Ita allver
Mt. and Rtopped It.
We have all yet to try the full power
of prayer. The time win r(ine when
the American Church will pray with
Ita face toward the Weat and all the
pralrlea and Inland cltlea will aurrend
er to (Iod; and will pray with fare
toward the ae, and all the lalanda
and ihlp will become ('brlatlan. Pa
rent who have wayward mm will get
down on their kneea and ay: "Iird,
aend my hoy home," and the boy In
Canton ahall get right up from the
gaming-table, and go down to find out
which ahlp etarta Aral for America.
Not one of u yet know how to
pray. All we have done aa yet haa only
been pottering. A boy get hold of hla
father'! aaw and hammer, and trlea to
make aomethlng, but It I a poor affair
that he make. The father cornea and
take the aame aaw and hammer, and
build the houaa or the ahlp. In the
childhood of our Chrlitlan faith, we
