In this sermon a new aapcet ls given to the patriotic holiday. Tba text is III John 14, "Our frienda salute thee." God pity the man without a country! Cod pity sueh a man as Philip Nolan, whom Kdward Everett Hale pictures In bia famous story, who, 00 account of his own sins, has lost the confidence and the respect of the people among' whom he was boru ami who on account of those sius is excluded from the land of hla hirth! God pity the man who does not glory lu the sacrifices .'nd tri? umphs of hu nation's heroea __d hero? ine-, who does uot live In hil country's hoi'es and who does not feel a thrill of honest pride when he mentions his birthplace and avows, as did Paul, "I am a man which am a Jew of Tarsus, a city lu Clltcla, a cltlaen of no mean city." Cod pity, I say again, the man who does uot feel In every part of his body, mind and aoul that the laud of his nativity ls the bast place In all tim world lu which to be born, that his peo? ple are the best people lu all the world with whom to associate, does not hope that the place of his cradle will las thc place of his sepulcher! Such ls the patrlot'e bout where'er wa roam; His Ant best country ever ls _t home. "That man is little to be envied," wrote Iuch Kenneth, "whose patriot Ism would not gain force upon his country's plains of Marathon and whose piety would not grow warmer umoug her ruins of lona." That Amer? ican's life ls uot to be Marte, who, with a cold, lethargic temperament and tramore, heart, could go aud look at tlie Lexington couiuootm, where a little handful of furumrs dared defy the British soldiers, or upon Breed's hill, commonly called Hunker Bill, where the tlrst cannon sounded forth the call for the minutemen to rally for America's liberties, or upon Valley Forge, where iu the awful winter of 1777 ami 1778 George Washlugtou and Ms brave wife shh "red and shook in ramp with the common soldiers, or up? on old Independence hall of Philadel? phia, where the immortal document of the Declaration of ludep-udeuce was signed, or upon Yorktown, where Cornwallis and his officer, were com? pelled to surrender their swords to the allied French and Ami rican ti top*, which surrender practically ended the 1 lo ?ly conillct for American freedom. But ** I lw?g*_ to lilli k over m.\ Ker? illon which was to precede our national holiday of the Fourth of July I said to myself: "Have wo truly triumphed over England 1 Are we truly lndepondeut of our mother land? Has not the Brit? ish nation c. iquered us lu truth aud In fact? Has she not mid does she not annually send over great Invading ar? mies and annually demand that we pay her not only gold, but things more precious than gold? Yes, yes," I said to myself, "England ls not a conquered rivul, but a conquering friend. In? stead of preaching ? patriotic sermon to show how the American nation has triumphed over the British empire I will twist my thorne nround. I would tell how the British empire has con? quered America. And when I show how the British empire has conquered us I will glory lu that conquest, for as England aud Scotland aud Ireland have put their impress upon us, so we In turn through them are helping to put our Impress upon the whole world for civilization anil for Christ." Hon the Ilrltlah ('on<|uer?Ml America. The British empire, in the first place, has conquered America by the power of the tongue. The tlrst words that we learned to lisp nt our mother's knee, the words that we snouted on the play? ground and spoke before the school desk, the words that we read in the morning newspaper and In library book and hear from our lecture plat? form and pulpit are English words. The language of thc American people ls the language of England's rose and of Scotland's thistle aud of Ireland's shamrock. The same tongue wc speak was spoken for centuries In the British Isles. Therefore, though a new nation was born ou July 4, 1774 lt was not a new race. It was simply the Godden of Liberty as a bride leaving the old j English homestead and setting up in housekeeping for herself. She still be? longed to the old English family. She .till spoke the mother tongue. More than that, she was dominated by ber mother's accustomed ways of thinking and doing thiugs. And this tie of lan? guage which binds the American peo? ple to their British kindred cannot be found binding us to any other nation on earth. When two nations like the British people and the American people speak the same language they must Inevita? bly be one In feeling, lt does not make much difference who sits upon the English throne or who ls In America's presidential chair, the two nations are oue. They are one because they have the same teachers. They are ono be? cause they have the same legends. Tue? are one because they naturally think alike, whether they will or no. This fact was beautifully Illustrated some years ago when John Hay, then Amer lean ambassador to London, spoke al the unveiling of the bust of Slr Waltei Scott In Westminster abbey. "The books a boy reads," said Mr Hay, "are those mo<d ardently admired and longest remembered, and Ainerlcfl reveled In Scott when the country was Buy lt Now. Now is the time to buy Chamber Iain's Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy. It is certain to be needed sooner or later and when that tiru* comes you will need it badly?yoi will need it quickly. Buy it now. Ii may save life. For sale by B. S. Ashby & Co., Accomac, and all county agencies. ______ younga ? I have heard from my fathor, a pioneer In Kentucky, that In the early daysflPthls rennin men would saddle theirjfc.es and ride from all tho uetgh iKirldBjfeounties to the principal post townSf their region when a new novel by tJKfiuthor of 'Waverley1 was ex? pected, 'through all the Import?Si lonnatlve dav-.

To the Amer a map of the British Islea la jere collection of city or town Each spot has Its sacred his ? account of the men who have ere and whose nelda of lull li? re transatlantic as well aa cla Home yeats ago I rode through and England on a bicycle. From filasgow I went to Ayr. There I fouon that my youthful idol, Burns, once lived. Iroiu Ayr I went to Ban? nockburn and Stirling castle. There I found that Bunker Hill was only an echo of Stirling castle. Those old Scot? tie, chiefs inspired America's ludo peudonce. Prom Bannockburn I went to Edinburgh. There I stood at the gravee of Guthrie nnd chalmers aud went ltto John Knox's old home and recognised these men ns my 'embers. From Edtnburgh I went down to the lake region and there found Its poets, my poets. There 1 reverently stood by the roadside while a nurse led John Ruskin past me- John Buskin then with hie mind n Melrose abbey lo ruins, but Jobn Buskin still?who wrote the booka that are on my library shelves. From there I went up to London. Al? most erery place I stoped I could go and find the grave of one of America's benefactors. England has conquered America by the power of the tongue. Because the same linguistic doors are opened to both people the two nations are one in sympathy and one In life. There ls an old Baying among the Spaniards, "Co? lumbus sot sall from Spain and dis? covered America, but not until Wash? ington Irving set sall for Spain was the Alhambra discovered for the Americans." That is true. From near? ly all foreign la nd j are we separated by the great "towers of Babel, the towers.of unknown tongues." Around these or over these but few of us have tia linguistic ability to go or to climb. But, th*n_h lietween us and England rolla the Atlantic ocean _.<nhi niles wide, the bridge of I common language spans it. Over that bridge every day walk UM British statesmen, the Brit? ish reformers, the British authors, the British preachers, the British leaders of thought. The British empire has conquered us by the tongue, hut not by that alone. Every year she studs over a great In? vading army. This army of Invaders ure stout of muscle and clear of eye and brave of heart. They have thc bravery to croea the seas. Y'es, but they are also brave enough to bring ulong their wives and children, and gold, and picks, und shovels, and ma? sons' trowels, and plumb lines. They plainly and bluntly declare that they have come to capture our lauds, and sit upon our me ????andie thrones, and form their colon;....lion settlements. And as soon as they cnn get a foothold here they say they will send over for their fathers and mothers and brothers and sisters to conic and live with them in their now homes which they have built in tho new land and which they are ulrendy beginning to rule. We find In America the English and the Scotch and the Irish families every? where. Supposing I should ask all those whom 1 address to arise nud say who were born lu the British Isles and who are sons and daughters and grand? children of ancestors who were boru there, how many do you suppose would stand up? A twentieth? A tenth? A fourth? Yes, I think a fourth or even a third ls not overstating thc numbers. When the original thirteen colonies won their nations 1 Independence we had nil told In this country between three and four millions of people. We then had n smaller population than has the present city of New York. In a lit? tle over a hundred years wc have near? ly HO.fxXt.OOO Inhabitants. Whence did these people come? From the Ameri? can cradle? Yes. The American stork has budded her nests in the chimneys of many homes. But thc American stork from 4,000,000 pareuts could not produce 80,*H)O,0iXi living descendants in a little over a hundred years. The vast numbers of the American Inhabit? ants today enme over ns emigrants from Europe or their fathere or grand fathers came thus. And by far tho largest proportion of these emigrants came as an Invading army from the shores of England and Bcptland and Ireland. The Great British Array. Great is the British army of emigra? tion! England defeated Napoleon Bo? naparte at Waterloo with an army of less than 70,000 men. The British em? pire hurled back the Russian Slav from the shores of the Black sea In the Cri? mean war with an army of only 80,000 men. Havelock fought Lls way up from tim coast to Lucknow and Cawn pur with only 1,200 men. Robert Clive, afterward Lord Clive, subjugat? ed the whole Indian empire with only a few thousand troops. But, though thc British empire has won many successes on land ns well ns on sea with small armies and na Good for Stomach Trouble and Com stinatlon.

From Clasgow and Liverpool anil London during the last hundred years she has sent forth her best sons and daughters by the hundreds of thou- ' sands and by the millions. Still that Invading army ls calling across Hie Atlantic for more re enforcements. "Send me my brother and sister," calls back the Irish servant girl to her par? ents on Killarney lakes. "Let them come to me, ai d I will pay their way." "Send me the girl I once courted among tho highland! or wooed under the shadow of Linlithgow while I read to her the triglc Story of beautiful Queen Mary, who was born among yonder hills," .vrtten the young Amer? ica ni/ed Scotchman who ls winning a fortune In the new world. "Send nie my sisters and let them flee the Lou? don fogs," writes the young English? man who ls limning o Texas ranch. Ah. yes, the Invading army of the British empire ls growing. Her sons and daughters have been rapidly mak? ing a auccess among Michigan hills, and Georgia, pines, and western prai? ries, aud In metropolitan New York. Am I wrong li statiig that the British empire has ai du lr ld siege and cap? tured Bunker Hill, with her Immi? grants every year coming Into New York harbor? But the Brltl h empire demands from us her annual -iports of gold. We are told that the A nerlcau struggle for lib? erty was bro'.gbt to n climax when King George's prime minister demand? ed that the thl teen colonies pay a tax on tea. The I wtofl tea party was or? ganized. One dark night a number of young men, armed to the teeth, entered those ships a;d tossed overboard all the boxes cont hiing that imported tea. "Taxatlou wi bout representation ls wrong!" the pc iple cried. "We will not pay a cent to the British throne untl1 King George allows our people to vote In the house of commons." But when George Wash! lgton took the oath of office ns presld -ut of tho United States did we then cease to have any further dealings with British gold? The Co-e-ext hr British Capital. Have you in a rational mun ever stopped to con dder how many Ameri? can Industries have been fostered uud built up by Biltlsh capital? The Brlt sh workmen have eomc here by mil? lions and setth d In our land aud taken out naturalization papers. But the Britts, capitalists, although many of them have never crossed the seas, havo sen' their mo leys here and invested them herc by '.Ik* millions nnd millions it pounds. The British capitalists nro saying to our miners, "You run my mines;" to our railroad men, "Y'ou run my railroads;" to our street electric car line president*, "You run my street railways." Ye ., the British capitalists have their moneys Invested in our couutr, bj till millions of dollars. If all British capital were to bo with? drawn foti, our mattara tories and railroad -tock and mining Industries this country vould bear the most aw? ful financial crash the work] has i'elt since man beran to buy and sell for barter ami geln. And, furthermore, one of thc surest gnarann - - that Eng? land will never go to war against America ls that, as a financial uutiou, she cannot afford to do so. She would not only be fighting her own sons and daughters, but she would be destroy? ing her own pocketbook. The British Immigrant ls here. The British mil? lions are lnves'ed In American coal as well as In Sheffield cutlery or Manches? ter factory or Belfast linen or Clasgow mills. If the British empire ilonilnntos us In a linguistic aid social and industrial way, how mu?b more does she influ? ence us in n religious way! Suppos? ing our chun'li's had been the out? growth of thc Spanish cathedral in? stead of the Scottish kirk. What would have happened! Supposing the men who laid the religious foundations of our theological seminaries had come from another i lass than the Puritans, dominated by the spirit of Rev. John Robinson. _FDpOSlng the men who taught us our Ideas of morality and right had not been Inspired by the teachings of a John Knox. Would we still be the nation whose (tod ls Lord, ns we are todnv? Thank Cod that the gospel tires which are today burning upon American hearths were once started by tin live coals of the old Puritans and t ie old covenanters. The spiritual Ups of many centuries nre pleading trom mir pulpits today, not spiritual lips which have been boru within the las' century. One of the most draruatl- and pathetic stories ever told wna that of Cyrus W. Field when he desi ribed before the New York chamber of commerce "The Sto? ry of the Ath ntlc Cable." For thir? teen long yea l this persistent oper? ator had struggled against contempt and ridicule o all sorts. At last the cable was suc> essfully laid. Then the Great Eastern sailed out to sea to grapple for the cable, which had boen lost In mldocecn the year l>efore. Two miles and a half tho grappling hooks sank to the bo toni of the ocean. Day after day ano week after week the work went on. At last the grappling hooks caught. Slowly and surely from Its bed of prlrrevnl ooze the lost cable was lifted up. But no sooner did the end appear al ove the surface of the sen than the in 'U raised a cheer. Then like a frightened creature It seemed to tear Itself away and fall back to its old couch. Ora* W Field's Courage. Again nnd again went the huge grap? pling Irons over the ocean bed. At last the hooks ngain caught. Slowly nnd surely this time the cable was again lifted. "Only when it was brought over the bow aud on to thc deck did the men dnre to breathe," said Mr. Flelc\ "Then wp carried lt ulong to thc electrician- room to see if our loug sought treasure was living or dead. A few minutes of suspense, and lt told of the lightning current ngnln set free. Then did the long pen' up passions of the men burst forth Some turned away their hoads ant wept, others broke into cheers. Then with thankful hearts, we turned ow fnces to the vest. But soon the wine rose, and for thirty-six hours we wen exposed to all the dangers of an At lan tic storm. Yet In the very height am fury of the gale as I sat In the elec trlcian's room a flash of light cann from the deep telling me that those s< dear to me whom I had left on tin bntiKS of tue iiunsou wen- ??ti dwi following me with their wishes aud their prayers. This was like a whisper of God from the sea bidding me keep heart and hope." And so, like Cyrus Vi. Field, when I nm sniling over the troubled seas of America's life I find a supernatural power speaking to me. From my hand there ls an Inspired cable running, lt reaches not, how? ever, to tho living of the earth, but to the living of heaven. It ruus clear back to the Massachusetts Plymouth colony; clear back to Scrooby manor house; clear back to the Scotch cov? enantors. The old religious leaders of England nnd Scotland and Ireland are speaking to me and saying: "Be of good courage, ye American people. The same God whom wu worship you worship. The same God who watched over us In the ages past ls the same God who will lead the Knglish and the American peoples now forward in the great work of the civilization aud the ChrlstiauUution of the round world redeemed from sin." KnKlHitd an. America. As 1 believe the British empire, un? der God, has religiously made this na? tion what lt ls, so I hope that the Brit? ish empire and the American people, side by side, nre going to dominate the world everywhere for Christ. It ls all folly for any one to state that the American government and the British government are not working hand in hand. When war was about to be de? clared against Spain In order to liber? ate downtrodden Cuba, some oue said to Mr. McKinley: "How is England? Will England uphold you lu this war?". Thou the president replied: "England is all right. England ls America's friend." Aye, yes, tho British govern? ment ls our friend. She will always be our friend. Side by side the two English speaking nations shall yet Bettie the Asiatic troubles. Side by side they will yet settle the African uud the Turkish troubles. As their christian missionaries in foreign lauds are now working for a common Chris? tian church, so ultimately their Chris? tian soldiers shall yet work side by side to right all civil wrongs and to make war in the future an impossi? bility, for then public opinion aud pub? lic policy will never be allowed to ba unjust. Why am I preaching this as a Fourth of July sermou? Because I feel that lt is about time for some one to lift a voice nnd rebuke tho prevaleut Idea that England ls our enemy, and that England, or, rather, tho British em? pire, ls jealous of us, or that we are Jealous of England. 1 denounce the idea thal, at the that chance, England and America, like maddened tigers, will leap at each other's throat. The second reason why I preach this ser? mon ls that I would turn our thoughts in love toward England and thereby n the work which the two na? in hand,' arc bound to do tot thc .salvation of this world tor Christ "But," says some one, "how can you claim, that England ls our friend? W? have had three great for? eign wars. Two of those were with England. During tho civil wnr we al? most had another bloody conflict with her. Can England bo our friend?" Only Family Jam. Oh, of course we have had a little trouble with England. We have had two or three big family rows. Winn Juli were grOWiUg Up III your lather's home all the children wera not always at peace. Your mother every little while had to come to the rescue aud P air oil upon the troubled waters. But those domestic troubles did not prove that the brotbera did not love brothers and Bisters 1 ive sisters. Wc have had a few domestic quarrels with our brothers and sisters across the seas, dur relatives living there are not saints. Perhaps some of the sin? ners are on this side of the Atlantic as well as on the other side. But, though we have had our national dif? ferences, they are only domestic dif? ferences. The two nations are of one blood. The two nations have the one great purpose for the civilisation of the world for Christ. So let us one and all speak more ubout the good the British people have done us and the good they are doing us. Then by speaking about the good which our British brothers nnd sisters have done and are doing we will be drawn closer and closer together and as two nations be more nble speedily to accomplish the work which God has given the English speaking race to do. In closing this Fourth of July ser? mon I would end lt with the sentiment with which Cyrus W. Field closed his speech at the chamber of commerce banquet of 1866. "I dose with this sentiment." he said?"England and America clasping hands ncross the sea. May this firm grasp be a pledge of friendship for all generations." Aye, more than this! "May the common brotherhood of the Anglo-Saxon race be the open door through which all peoples shall enter into and kneel In the great temple, where they shall worship the universal fatherhood of God and the brotherhood of man through Jesus Christ our Lord." Hal? leluiah! Then shall the sword be turn? ed Into the plowshare ami the spear Into the pruning hook. Then man shall never bottle with man, and man shall not lenrn war any more. Amen and amen!
