A SERMON BY BISHOP BROOKS- from the churchman of march 8, 1800 When a company of men change their scenery within a few momenta, as we have changed ours, and come into the midst of surroundings entirely different from those which were encompassing them a few moments back, it is good for them to take account of what difference the change has made in them, or what it means to them to have come into these different conditions. Every man changes with his circum stances ; he is so full of the susceptibility and of the readiness with which the human mind responds to the thirjgs with which it has to deal. And yet at the same time every man carries within him self such an identity, tuch continuous life, that he remains the same in spite of the circumstances by which he is sur rounded. It is little for us to come herp, my friends, to spend our hours together, if we leave ourselves outbide when we come in and leave the church inside when we go away. How we keep our religion apart from our iife! How we do cur work upon the shore, and it, seems to us as i there were inlands i ff there in the stream, and once in a while we get into our boiit- and pull away and cross the water, and these do our worship, at;d think our better thoughts upon these islands in the stream, and then pull back ugaiu to the shore which is all secular. Sometimes we cast, our eye teros the water and think it good that we should be there. L5ut we d i not bind the two together. The two must cmie together. There is but one man. There Is but ont life for each of us, and no man gains the blessing of the sacred associations unless they come to be as the interpretation of ail the life that he is living, and make known to him tfie man that he is, even when he seems to be most separated from the deepest things. I think, when a man comes to realize that BEING A CUlilSTIAN IS NOTUING ON EARTH EXCEPT BKINUA MAN: that the Chiiatian life is notbin in the world except the fulfilment of the human life; that every Christian institution is but the setting forth, in type aDd pat tern, of that which, when the w orld shall come to its completenese, ehall be the en tire life of all mankind ; then there comes a wonderful freshness and reality into those thoughts which very often have be come so dim and dull in regard to it. I would submit to you all that. I would tell you that when a man becomes a Christian he becomes a man ; that just so far as a man falls short of the Christian type and character, he falls short of his humanity ; that being a Christian is not going aside from our human life, putting oil' into some strange region and there dwelling apart from all humanity. It is entering inlo the depths of our humanity and beiDg thoroughly a man. My friend says to me on the street, "What U it to be a Christian?"' It is to be the fulfilled man. What is the Christian Church It is the fulfilled human society. Man, when he enters upon the higher life of God, is never to be anything but man. I love this dear humanity in which we live, with all its faults and failures, with all its sins and sorrows. It is a dear thing, from which o.an would not be separated. As man loves the human life into which God has sent him this special, personal human life, 30 human ity loves its bumanness. And no religion shall ever lay hold upon ihe human soul. that says to mac "You shall become something else than man; you shall be come some Btrange, saintly, angelic being, different from manhood"; -but only that which, touching the deepest desires of our human nature, says "L.et me do your work for you, and you shall be truly man." It seems to us at first that we must drag down our highest influences, that we must bring heaven down to earth, in order that the two may meet. Not so We must bring human life up to heaven, and realize its divine capacity. The great truth with regard to the Gos pels is that JESUS IS FIRST OF ALL A KEVEALEK Before He does one special work for man, before tie lays His hand to the great burden of human sin, He first pours down His light and shows man what man is. His first deed to you, my friend, must be in giving you more lofty and celestial and divine thoughts of what you are. Tbe Incarnation means that God saw in human life such wonderful capaci ty, such glor.ous capability, that He could pour His own life in that human life and make the divine-human existence which we call tbe Christ. It was because of the infinite value that He saw in human life that Jesus died upon the cross. Thus at tbe two ends of Jesus' life in His In carnation, in His entrance upon our ex perience, and in His departure from our human experience, in His Cruc'fixion, there is this splendid testimony to the gloriousness of human life. Now, my friends, when In the face of all that I bear tbe talk that is current among men to-day, when I read the cheap talk that Is in papers and books, when I bear the cheap discourse that falls from men's lips ; when I hear a young man daring to say thai: life is not worth living, that human life is not a glorious thing; when I hear the insignifi cant and contemptible little cynic, who grows more and more common in our i artificial and fantastic civilization, and Bet him by tbe side of Jesus Christ it is almost impossible to let one's pity overcome one's contempt. What does that young fellow know about human life? How has be gone down to tbe depths of this marvel lous nature? How has be, flogflriog up- on the outside ot this world, got to the deep knowledge of what It i for a man to deal with the tternal issues of this great globe of God? It is only ODe's pity that can overcome one's Indignation and scorn of the man who U a cynic in the face of Jesus Christ. In that calm face there is no cynicism, no contempt. In that calm face we see infinite com miseration for the lot of man. There U the profound sense that human nature ia a beautiful and glorious thing. IF YOU WANT TO BE LIKE JESUS CHRIST, be simply full of admiration and delight in life, not simply because this wind blows pleasantly, and that son (bines bright; not simply because that friend speaks smoothly, and this fortune rolls in at your open door. To live the very being alive that was the thing that was glorious to Jesuo. And so, in spite of everything, He stood by His post ; He accepted the privilege and the duty of life both together. There was no possi bility in Jesus of the cowardice that makes a man run a ay from his life the moment it grows distressing and dread ful in its circumstances. The cowardice of suicide the infinite cowardice of sui cide was not for Jesus. We ourselves know how cowardly it Is, because we never dare say of any f rierjd of ours that in clear possession of his senses he took hia own life. We know what a coward' ly thing that would be; and so we cover it with what veil of "disturbed condi 5ions"' we can imagine or know for him. But to stand at one's post and -live till God shall call us, to recognize the glory and the duty of standing therp, and then to go from life to life, fulfilling this with that which lies beyond that is the glory of the man who lives in the spirit of Jesus. Vouog men, keep out of your souls the taint of cynicism, and de?pie the so ciety and the tone of life that makes cynicism and pessimism and the con tempt of life seem for a moment a glori ous thing. As we see life becoming every day more expeditious and comfortable, we are in danger of forgetting that it is in the inward life that the real vitality of the world abides. And so it is ONLY BY THE PROGRESS OF THE SOUL of man that the progress of the race is measured. We a.k ourselves some times, almost with sinking hearts, how is it that, while man thus conquers na ture, no man is conquering himself? The real question of human progress, when you get to its spiritual leaning, is not how fast a man can talk from Cal cutta to New York, nor how fast a mas can travel to San Francisco, but what messages he is sending, what errands are carrying him across the continent? Are they the errands of a diviner hu manity? Are they the messages of no bler ministries of human life of a deep er integrity and a higher aspiration? You remember how the poet, musing, years ago, on feeing return in the skies the combination of the planets which naa not been tnere ror years, pierces the whole question with his great in s quiry, sent forth into the midnight heavens : What dost thou see, bright star, so pure and wise, More than in other times? Christ's human story, Which makes our hearts more apt to sympa thize With heaven, our souls more fit for future glory, When earth shall vanish from our fading eyea, When we lie down in our last dormitory. vvonaertui ana Deautuui to me ap pears this everlasting protest of the hu man soul against materialism. In every birth, in every death, in every moving of love in a young man's heart, in every moving of indignation against any wrong by which a man is surrounded, in every lifting up of tbe nature with any great spiritual impulse, this materialism i3 thrust into its place, and is once more the servant and not the master. Noth' ing short of character can be the real glory of humanity. And so nothing short of progress in character can mark the progress of our human life. You cannot dream of your surgeon becom ing so skilful wilh his knife, your law yer becoming so subtle with his argu ment, your minister becoming so ripe in his theology and so accurate in his per formance of ceremonies, that after all you ehall not demand that behind and within each there shall be tbe man MAX NEVER SHALL OUTGROW THE GREAT DEMAND FOR CHARACTER. And that is the universal and perpetual testimony, that it is in the lifting up of human character, and tbe realization of its capacities, that man shall come to be religious-and enter into the understand ing of Christ, and know God. We are sometimes told that we are to be this and that, and are sometimes puz zled when Christian courses are indica ted to us. What are those Christian course? My friends, they are nothing in the world except the fulfilment of the human character by tbe grace of God There may be wondrous qualities In God which our limited human nature never has been able to perceive. There may be depths of the divine life, which have never opened themselves to us, eyen in mmd. Kut we must believe, we must remember, that those qualities in the divine nature which have been opened to us, and which bear tbe names with which we are familiar, are the same in God that they are in us. Justice in God is exactly what it- Is between you and your fellow merchant, Infinitely re fined, made infinitely loftier; and higher in the things with which it Seals, but the same simple, glorious fundamental virtue, between you and the Divine Life, that it is between you and the brother with whom you dwell. Love, when God stoops and with the band of the Christhood takes up coy life out of the ruins, is the same thing, so much richer. so much fuller, and, because richer and fuller, all ;the more the same, with the love with which I kneel down and pick op the poor beggar, the crushed life, out of the dust. Theology becomes fantas ticreligion all becomes fantastic un less you know that the qualities of Gd are truly the same things with the . qual ities of man.J be eon of God ; that man is made in God's image, and that when God oids yotr to be just and pure and holy, He is asking you to ; .. . LET HIM FILL YOUR HUMAN LIVE with the great radiance of His divinity, aud make it all the more truly human. There is a real, tree, rational and natur al theology.

I do not obey God's com mands merely because I look to a divine authority held over my bead, or for fear of punishment. I do not merely look to a greater reward which is to come if fulfil tbe commandment, iiut I find in my own heart, written by the same band of God, spoken by His ycice, the fulfil ment of that command which he has given, by the deeper, aroused instincis of my own nature. Shall man go to heaven or go to hell when this life is over? Certainly he will. But it shall be by no arbitrary judgment. The soul that gO'es to heaven shall go bet ause it could go nowhere else. The soul that goes to punishment shall go because it could go nowhere else. I shadder when I think what a sign of men's degradation, of the life that they are living, that they should so easily accept the lower conditions into which they fall as habitual, and as likely to repeat themselves, and how unprepared they are to accept the loftier conditions. There are two days in your remem brance, my friends, one when you lay in the gutter and the other when you stood upon tbe mountain top. There was one day when you disgraced your self and lived like a beast, and you hate to think of it. There was another day when you thought yourself almost an gelic, when an inmost nature burned out when you lifted up your soul with an exaltation that took you absolutely by surprise. THOSE TWO DAYS. live in your remembrance, one down in the depths of the mire, and the other up in the glory of the sun. Which is tbe day that you most remember and most think may be repeated? Do you not stand in awful terror when you think of that day of your wallowing degrad ation, and do you not look upon tbe other as though it were some strange and distant being that stood there? There is no sign of a man's spiritual growth, I think, so true as that be counts the highest thing that he has ever done the most natural thing ; that be knows that the deepest hour be ever lived was bis truest hour, and so looks for the renewal of that hour. If Christ's minister blames me for not living the Christian life, and I say "What is the Christian life? Where is it?" And he says "Off there in the distance, on the other side of a broad sea" ; I say am not to blame : I have lived my hu man life." That is what multitudes of sonls are saying. But if then Christ looks into the depths of my soul and says "You have not lived your human life. Your human life was obedience to holiness. Yonr human life was pure Your human life was this" and holds out his wondrous human life, then my whole soul goes down in penitence. Y ou must know that you OUGHT TO HAVE BEEN THE BETTER MAN. or you never can repent of not having been; and you must know that you could have been tbe better man, or you never will know that you ought to have been. And when you know these things there will come, first penitence, and then the reaching up after tbe new chance wnicn never dies away in tuis world or in any world, may we not believe, where the soul, knowing God and needing God shall find the God who at last bas been revealed to its recognition and its need? There is the great truth about it all, my friends : You never will find God till you need Him; and therefore tbe way to find Him is to put yourself where you will need Him. What but tbe grow ing needs of men turned barbarism into civilization? Man must need a thing before It really can come to him. Only by putting ' ourselves - where we shall need God can we find Him to do things which we cannot do without Him. Ah! we cannot do anything without Him, yon say. Yes, but there a host of things which you think you can do without Him. There are your bargainings and your sellings, that you think your acute brain and your ready hands are all fit for. If you think that yon can do those things without God, then try something else. Try to corquer your passions, try to refrain from tbe sin that you have habituated yourself to for years. Try to go outside" of your selfishness and help tbe poor. Try to tackle tbe prob lems of your brother's life. Try to enter into the deep mysterious world of some poor creature's prt blems. Try to make your boy a better man than yon are, a better man you have ever dreamed of being. Then your weakness shows Itself, and then yon drop your bands in Impotence, and then you bend yonr knees in prayer. Ab, tbe first prayer f That means tbe first real sense of need, tbe first going to God, which proves bow A IGANTIC ur MARK DOWN SALE! Of BOOTS, SHOES and SLIP- PEES.

IT tion of Sangamon was in a state of wild expectation. Some six weeks before Lincoln's circular apprared. a citizen of Springfield had advertised that as soon as the ic went off the river he wou'd bring up a steamer, the "Talisman, '' from Cincinnati, and prove the Sanga mon ravigable. The announcement had aroused the entire country, speeches were made, and subscriptions taken. The merchants announced goods direct per steamship "Talisman" the country over, and every village from Bekrdtown to Springfield was laid off in tow lots. The "Talisman'' actually came up the river; scores of men went to Beards town to meet her, among them Lincoln, of course; and to him was given the honor of piloting ;her an hi,nor which made him remembered by many a man who saw hioi that day for the first time. Tbe trip was made with all the wild de monstrations which always attended the first steamboat. On either bank a long procession of men and boys on foot or horse accompanied the beat. Cannons and volleys of musketry were fired settlements were passed At every stop speeches were made, congratulations offered, toasts drunk, flowers presented. It was one long hurrah from Beards- town to Springfield, and foremost in the jubilation was Lincoln, the pilot. The "Talisman" went as near Springfield as tbe river did, and there tied up for a Coughing. 4F" or all the ailments of Throat and Lungs there is no cure so quick and permanent as Scott's Emulsion of Cod-liver Oil.
