Cal., Sept. 10.- In thil sermon Um preacher describes niau. nltsloa of liolpfillness to his fellows aud Indicate, the linea upon which thnt mission may bc carried out. The text Is John xl, 44, "Loose him nnd let him go." Never wbh human lender lu closer touch with lim followers ttnin Jesus Christ. He walked and ate and slept with his disciples. He was closer thnn that. He shared their Joys mid sor? rows and privations. He set them nn example of self sacrifice. He never nskod his followers to make any sacri? fice which he himself was not wllllug to make. If they wept, he wept with them. If they were a-hungered. he ?tarred With them. Whoa he warned them thut they might have to lay down their lives for his sake, he set them the example of martyrdom by yielding himself to the cross. One of the great? est elements which bind a human | heart to another heart ls the willing? ness of mau to make sacrifices for a friend or a neighbor. In our own history we have seen in example of this fraternal leadership. George ll. Mcclellan, the most popular commander the Army of the Potomac ever had, was beloved by his men ou that account. Let me give you an in? cident how thia devoted general gripped the affections of his army with links of steel. The northern army was making a forced march from Harrtsou Landing to Newport News. Toward tlie evening hour it wns miles away from Its destination. The soldiers, marching four abreast, came to a small stream, not \ery wide or deep, but Just deep enough to wet their feet if they waded through lt. Near to the ford a large tree had fallen, nnd tlie trunk had bridged th? stream. __e soldiers, dreppl.ni Inta single file, were crossing over the tra. trunk. Tills, of course, took extra time The lines In tlie rear, marching rnpidl.v forward, became congested. The whole brigade was becoming disorganized With that three or four officers oi horseback rode up to the forth At onci they saw the difficulty. Then one o thos** officers In the dusk cried out "Wade right through, my meu. Wadi right through. Never mind about gettln; your feet wet. Wade right through.' With that one of the private soldier surlily grumbled back, "Wade througl yourself and don't sit there on horst back with dry feet telling uh how t get wet." Hardly were the words oti of the soldier's lips than this office leaped off hts horse nnd waded througl saying: "Come on, men! We must nc block the line. Wade right through. When the officer turned the men sa" _*? was their sturdy little cbmmande Oeorge B. McClellan. They at om Tilted a cheer and waded through, nu the disorder In the rear rnnks cease McCkdlan never usked his soldiers do what he himself wns not ready do. The result was he was Idolized I his anny as but few men have ev been. When he was superseded son of the strongest of men wept as ch dren. Chrlat So.ulit Co-operation. Rut, though Christ never liked li followers to make nny sacrifice whit he himself was unwilling to make, y as I study the miracles of Christ find that almost without exception I sought co-operation from those who he would help. He was willing feed the multitude with a few loav j and fishes, but he made the dlsclpl distribute the brend and the fish n: rolleet the fragments that remain* Ho waa ready to give his disciples _?*at catch of fish on Lake Galil hut he made them launch their bc out toto the dpep and let down thc i and bring the fish to hand. He \* ready and willing to resurrect the dr Lazarus, but he called upon the 1 standers to loose the graveclotl ?which l>o_nd him hand nnd foot. I m ' xmtil they obeyed could the brother Mary and Martha go forth free. WI Christ did of old Christ ls doing tod He ls ready to save men. but he pects his disciples to help bira in ma liberation, mental, financial, mo physical and spiritual. I want to sli how we can aid in the emancipation fcelpless men, as the disciples took tte graveclothes of Nani reeled I aral to "loose him nnd let him go.' Christ bids us help liberate the tellectuil man who Is struggling in mental difficulties. He wants us to asunder the old bonds of preju with which they are born and wi are gripping them almost as poi tully as the officer's handcuffs hold ?criminal by hts side. He would 1 ?? not laugh at or sneer at or rldl the doubter and the skeptic nnd atheist. He bids us not hurl taunt* at the poor mental cripples 1 with hot, blistering feet, are pain! limping over the awful deserts blighting agnosticism. But he bid go to our brethren In mental or 1 lectual difficulties and kindly gently and lovingly, yet firmly, them out of the bogs and the q mires and quicksands In wliich have fallen aud in which they struggling today. Oh, th? awf.l edy of being mentally blinded au ing unable to get a right COOCepUl God! Yet there are thousands of a__ w?n?e_ who by constitutlo brain and Intellect are natural doubters. They suspect the sine of every good work, and therefore Cured of Lame Back After 15 1 of Suffering. "I had been troubled with lame for fifteen years and I found a plete recovery in the use of C berlain's Pain Balm," says Joh Bisher, Gillam, Ind. This llnim also without an equal for spraini bruises.

A_ Inrldrnt of Michael Angelo. An incident In the life of Michael Angelo well Illustrates how you and 1 have to continually ruu up against and overcome men's prejudices. Th? Florentine master had already chis eled some of his greatest plecos ol sculpture, but, strange to say, thor* were a great many Florentines, ai there "are men In our day, who could not see any perfection lu any pictur, or piece of statuary unless lt wns hun dreds of years old, so Mlchuel Angelo, to convert his critics, made a new statue. He then broke off one ol the arms of that statue and kept it Then he stained the rest of tlie Htutu* und burled lt ando, one of the old churchos nnd then had one of his friends find it. At once all the url critics of Florence gathered nround thin exhumed piece of stone and declared lt was one of the finest pieces of sculp? ture ever cbiseletV;- mun. "Ou!" they ried. "Where e:fu we find I modern sculptor able to mold a body Ilka that?" After Florence had praised ^bla statue for some months Michael Angelo came forward with the broken ann of white marble which he hud kept lu his studio. He fitted it on the exhumed statuo and he declared: "I can make a statue as good us thut See, I huve made this one myself. The broken arm ls a perfect flt." His crit? ics were confouuded, aa they well might he, but as I reud that story I did not condemn those Florentines as mauy have done. I said to myself: j "Yea, those men who criticised the ris? ing sculptor were natural born doubt? ers. Tk.re are some men who, by their natural mental makeup, find fault with .verybody and everything; therefore, if we are going to lead men to Christ, we must learn how to overcome the Intellectual doubts, tho Intellectual skepticisms, which trouble ho many men concerning God. Th* MratrrUa of the Blhlc. And how many causes for doubts li reference to God we see everywhere Heit', for Instance, are all the doubt men have In re/ereuce to the mysterlei of the Billie. Wns there ever a com pass which needed to be surer or true In the dark nnd nlmost impend ra bl forests than the star of Bethlehem t guide the mental doubters out of th my itel III of God's providence? Her are all the mysteries of sorrow. Th doubter perhaps has lost a little chll or the mother of his children. He cai not understand why God took his love ones. Khull we pass over these my: tories of sorrow with a mere wave c the hand? Here are all the shortcon lugs of Christians which blind tl doubter's eyes. Perhaps some eld< of a church has cheated him In a bu? ness deal. Shall not the doubter I talked to lovingly in reference to th matter und shown how there hare be( Judases among Christ's professed ft lowers at nil times? Yes, Christ wan to draw to his armH those who a ?-entally blinded. He would have i lead them us carefully as I saw U other day a boy leading his lit! brother of eight Bummers, who w blind In both eyes, across a count field. As F saw these two boys goi past me thure were tears In my ey for an especial reason. As they wc passing I wai told that only a ye before that little boy's eyes were good as yours or mine. But his o1 brother, who was then leading hi while hunting oue day had accldi tally discharged bte gnu ind shot brother's sight away. "0 God." said to myself, "can lt be that some us, by our own sins of commission sins of omission, have made some thy children mentally lrlh.il to thy lov< Can lt be that doubters and skept and agnostics and mental antagoal to God nre resisting him today mer because we will not take away bands which are blinding their eye because there is no one to unco their eyes?as the disciple? of old t off the bands from the eye Rockets helpless Lazarus? 0 God, today , us more sympathy for tho hoi doubter! Inspire us with holy zea try to scatter these doubts away wi ever and wherever they arc! Brand nani and Foot, But as I go up to the open tomb wi slept the dead Lazarus I find that only was be blinded, but his mi ments were restrained. His resurr cd body has Hs griveclothes bo around the arms and the hands, legs nnd the feet and the stomach well as nronnd the forehead, lips and the eyes. Indeed, so heir was Lazarus physically that he c not have stepped out of bis cryp tlie tomb, as you and I would Ul back tho bedclothes of i morning leap out upon the floor, but he i have had to give a lurch and roll upon tho stones of the tomb. The struggled to his feet and stood ll statue. Thus stood Lazarus' ri weted body. As I go on up ant: amine the man's bound Sands and I say to myself, "Yes; h?w muc 3fmbol does Lazarus look .ns a bound hand and 1'oot with fina debt'." The mau ia financial dis sometimes cannot make one t?o^ he would. So I believe Christ'.* W "Loose him and let him go," huve application in reference to a fina liberation as well ns a mental o tellectual. How much of a finn liberation many people need but of us hnve nny adequate conceptli Financial liberation is needed ii store. The temptations' of bus life are mighty. Here l_ a men who has been left an .xecutor friend's estate. For years and hfe has led aa honorable life. Bu hard times have come.

Ashby & C Accomac, arjd all county agen r*m?I I nu?? :redltors the store nnd wulk out a bankrupt) or shall he borrow some af the money of his friend's estate und put it into his business? lt is all well enough for you to denounce tho misappropriation of trust funds. But, supposing you were In that man's place nnd your creditors were knocking at j i your door, what would you do? I fear you might do Just as thousands of men have done In the past who have bein bound hand and foot with the graveclothes of debt. You would bo dishonest, as they were dishonest. The financial temptation would fling you. Poverty Vcr?u? Crime. Or take another view of the snma subject. Supposing you are not a merchant, but a clerk or a laborer. On account of the hurd times you have lost your position In the store or the mine. Supposing you huve tramped the streets duy after day looking for work and never huve boon able to lind it. And then, supposing hunger is beginning to gnaw at your vitals and the bitter cold to s<?_d lui chills playing "hare and hounds" up and down your back, what would you do? You may have learned what cold und hunger arc when some time you were out hunting or tramping through the woods and you were lost. You re? member how you tramped on and ou until you became faint from hick of food, und perhups your lips became swollen for water to drink, but there was no water, uo food, no house in sight. How, then, did you look ut life? Does a hungry mau, a cold mun, have the same ehince for virtue and houesty aud purity as a well fud mau und a warm man? Oh, my friends, If you and I ever find a time when we em relieve some of these fluunclal distresses I bellew we will take uway a lurge per cent of the crimes and the dishouestles of the world. Indeed, I know what I say is true. Most men aro not dishonest for men pleasure, but only when they have become brutalized by hunger and bodily wants nnd financial necessities. Tho majority of men are honest ut heart. This truth wis forced upon me some months ago In a powerful way. I met one of tlie boys of one of thc old farm? ers of my Hushhlll church, where I preached lor two summers as a theo logical student, thirteen miles from a railroad From being a farmer's sou ba had worked his way through college and was traveling through the country In a camping wagoo lecturing at thi little towns and schoolhouses upou thi "Anthracite Goal Beds of Pennsyl? vania." As a lecturer that man hat been everywhere. On the deserts, li tho mountain., at mining camps am lu railroad towns he had spoken. H had campod nlone In ravines and b; Mexican dugouts aud by Indian vii luges. "Were you never afraid of be lug ittackod mid robbed?" I asked hlu "Never," said he. "I started out year ago believing thut most people wer honest and that If you trust them the would not betray you. I have hoe among tho cowboys and had Indian ride np to me upon the desert mile away from any human belug, and have never been molested. Furthe more, I have never carried a flrearr either gun or pistol. I never locke up my things. But I'd go away fro my wagon for days at a time, ar when I came back I always found n goods Just where I left them. If y< believe people are honest and tru them they will not betray you." I say I. From a rather varied expe ence I feel sure that most people wa to do right. If men do cheat, for nnd steal Inevitably you will find tli they were first led astray because ht ger or cold or financial exigency some sort drove them to crime. G inspire us to help those who are wi out work to get work, nnd those w are without food and clothing to | food and clothing, nnd those who are financial difficulties to woather th few months of financial storm. II that man financially. Do you not hi tlie words of my text, "Loose him 8 let him go?" God will save that n In financial distress If you disciples \ **o your part. We must save men morally as v ai help them Intellectually and fin chilly. I apply that word "morally" all tbat ls most vile ind corrupt human nature. I do not, however, ply lt In the sense that you am should go Into the city slums and np the social outcasts, although t! reic.ue should ind must be done by proper Christian workers.

The iteudy tlirob of the engine was stopped, md we entered the buildings, situated n one of the most romantic places I 'vcr saw for a state reform school, l'he flowers were there; the green hills (vere there; thu harvest fields aud the jrcbards were all there, hut is I went through that Institution my heart grew Bick, for I said to myself, "Nature In all her beauty ls here, but child lifo In till Its sinfulness ls here also." Then I said again: "Supposing one of my daughters should be taken out of her Christian home und In tlie most critical time of Ufo be compelled to iHsoclute with these wayward girls, how would she turu out, what chance for good would she have? Ah, little, very, very little chancer And so, my friends, if by the help of the Holy Spirit you and I ure going to save the young people we must tbrow about them tho right kind of Christian companionship. We must woo them to the church fel? lowship. We must make our young people's meetings so attractive that the saloon and thc billiard parlor and the dance hall and the low theaters can? not successfully beckon them for six nights of the week and we preach to them only on Sundays. We should cling to the young folks of our cities. We should go after them and hold to them all tlie time. The Sunday school teacher who never finds an evening to visit ber pupils during the woek will never have pupils who will have time to sit at her feet on Sundays. Tlie young people of your church who never Invite the strangers to their houses or visit them In their rooms or arrange semlsocial gatherings for them In the church will never have tho newcomers crowding their services. Ktndneas to the Weak. But, lastly, I reninrk, we must try to liberale helpless men during their time of physical infirmities us well ns dur? ing their time of physical strength and good health. Of all times during which we can most appeal to helpless man the best ls when he ls lying upon an Invalid's bed or in times of agonizing sickness. Sometimes a strong man or woman is uot easily susceptible to kindness. But once let the strength leave the arni, ouce let the brow be? come bot and feverish, once let the stomach refuse to retain its nourish? ment, nnd then tho slightest kindness, ns a rule, will bring tears of gratitude to the eye and words of thankfulness to the trembling lip. But, though the sick bed is the greatest and best of al pulpits over which to preach, how foo of us ever embrace tl e opportunity ti minister there lu God's name as wi should! IuiIcihI, is horses will nearl: always shy and run away from a sid horse which ls lying upon the ground so I think well people, as a rule, shui and fear sick people. "Why do you not spend your suni mers In Asheville or the Adirondack or in Colorado or In Bed lands of soutl ern California? Are they not beaut ful places?" I ask you. "Yes," yo answer, "but I cannot stand the sic people. Wherever you go lu thee places you find them there, weak an pale. Coughing, coughing, coughini uppnlling coughing, ls contluuall heard on nil sides. Sickness ts to n very depressing. Why, I dislike I look even nt tho windows of n bospttl .Vs for going through a hospital, would no moro do it than 1 won enter the operating room nnd pee surgeon cut off a man's leg." But, n friend, did you ever stop to think th us others are sick so some day yi may be sick? Then will you not ne comfort? Week In and week out sot of these Invalids have to He in b with no callers. No one comes bring them a flower or utters a wo of prayer or speaks to them even o word about Christ, yet by their ve sufferings those sick people are lu j\ right mood to reach up and take Chr by the hand, if you will only sb them how. But before I close I bethink mys of oue fact- Perhaps you are not ; fitted to go forth on these errands gospel morey. Why? Perhaps you i today hearing God's voice which spe at the tomb of the dead Lazarus i yet you yourself are sitting or sta Ing before me bound hand and f with tho graveclothes of past si Then, my friend, will you let me move them In Christ's name? Will ; let me take away that slu of the ha that sin of the foot, that sin of tlie < that sin of thc lip, that sin of heart? Puul, the chief of sinners, i once bound as you. Will you let In Christ's name, speak unto you wonls of hope? Then, like the 8 An.nias of old, I will say unto t blinded with sin, "Brother Saul, Br er Saul, the Lord, even Jesus, wi thou hast seen on the Damascus r hath sent me that thou mlghtest rec thy sight und be filled with the I Ghost." In Christ's name your may be opened. Then you will ready for his service.

The uncer? tainty was discouraging, but he had experience enough to know that the ledge from which the gold had beeu washed must be somewhere hi the vi? cinity, so he explored thc valley, but without result.

The mine owners, however, disagreed with him, and he begin In? vestigation for himself when the veins appeared to be exhausted. On the very day he received a telegram to nbandon the claim he made the discov? ery of tho lode beneath. Tlie telegram he sent to his employers caused them to give him carte blanche in the way of spending their money to reach the ore.

The Morse Alphabet In Fiction. Within tho past month I huve read two short stories by different authors wherein the chief character bis got himself out of difficulties by tapping out sentences In Morse telegraph let? ters upon ar iron door or a window or something. Why don't these isplrlng authors Und out something about teleg? raphy before indulging In such stuff? Even people of small Information know that it is impossible to make most of the Morse characters without a "back stroke" to sound the difference between a dot and a dash, and only a few letters are composed of clots only. Any person who knows the telegraphic alphabet can transmit u sentence by tapping upon another's hand, but this ls done by bearing down longer for tho dash thun the dot, which, of course, cannot be Indicated hy rapping on a pane of glass with a nail.

The Drink Kvll In the Fuuifle Islands Uobert Lamb, author of "Saints and Savages," says thut the drink evil is one of the curses of the Pacific Islands. Englishmen are forbidden by law to pay the natives la liquor, though lt ls probable that the law ls evuded. One day Mr. Lamb came to a village-where French traders were paying for cocoa* nuts with drink. The old chief wus seated on the ground Winlug against his but, crying, "Oh, save my people!" He had himself been Induced to take part In thu drinking bout. Pointing to the bottles by his side, he said: "They are paying the boys with that and ruin? ing them. It has killed me." Tlie mis? sionaries would have taken him down to the station for treatment. B-it he cried: "No, no! I ara not worthy! Bury me outside the fence. And?save my people." The same afternoon he died. Judicial Tantrums. After a service of nearly thirty yean is recorder of Dublin Slr roderick Falkiner is about to retire at tlie age of seventy-four. 81r Frederick ls noted throughout Ireland as one of the most Irritable Judges upon the bench, and he ls uot slow to uncork the vials of his wrath when anything in the handling of a case evokes his displeasure. In his earlier days he was constantly in hot water, but lt was found that his bark was worse than his bite, and after awhile thc counsel practicing In his court learned to receive with stolidity his tirades of abuse. It was astonishing to a chance vis* ltor to behold a recorder dressing down a lawyer who stood silent before the torrent of words, but the lawyer well knew that before the court closed the recorder would make amends for his outbreak by singling the unfortunate ittorney to be the recipient of some marked compliment. The retirement of Slr Frederick will remove from thc Irish hench one of Ita most picturesque figures, but his mem? ory will live in the legal fraternity through tbs good stories told of his out' breaks iud ap.*,lo_l??- ?
