Thc text ls Amos Iv, 13, "He tbat formetb the mountains." Have you ever visited the Sehroon lake of the Alps? Have you ever slept under the shadows of the snow capped Blgl, with Its horizon sweep of .'-ino mile* In circumference? Then yon have visited Laku Lucerne, one of the most r#mantlc and pictures.pie lukes that ever Inplied the foot of a hill or nestled to sleep like a smiling babe In lap of a gigantic mountain. The old poet sings of the charms of Lake Ge? neva, another of Switzerland's sceale wonders, with its battle scarred eastle standing sentinel over lt, a castle i whoso wnlls are seamed with defying the cannonading of the elements, as well as resisting the attacks of man. This ls his song: A thousand feet In depth below The maasy waters mevt and flow; So far thc fathom line was sent From Chlllon's snow white battlement. But, though others may sing about the beauties of Luke (leneva or Luke Windermere or Luke Sarnia of Fin? land or Lake George of New York or tbe Lake of the Woods of Minne? sota, all of them beautiful lakes, I still believe that Lake Lucerne ls the queen Of romantic lukes for many of ns. There we not only saw some of ibo most beautiful of all scenes, but we also Stood before ThorwnldBen's great? est masterpiece, "The Lion of Lu? cerne." Most of you know the history of that marvelous piece of statuary. When the French throne wns tottering amid tbe upheaval of the awful revo? lution which has made the names of Robespierre and Marat ond Barere Infamous for nil time. Louis XVI. and Marie Antoinette dare not trust their lives nnd those of their children to tho loyalty of their own soldiers. They sent across tbe northern border and hired some Swiss soldiers to be their bodyguard. Eight hundred of these were quartered lu the Tullerles. Fatal Aug. 10, 1792, came, and the mob broke loose nnd started for their royal prey. They battered down the gates and doors of the king's residence. They slew the Swiss soldiers wher* >dj ever their hated uniforms were seen aa mercilessly as the Sioux Indians toma hawked Custer and his little handful ol followers on the Little Big Horn river Ihey literally annihilated the whoh band In order to get at their hate^ rulers. Thorwaldsen, the great Danial sculptor, to commemorate the death o these brave soldiers of the Swlsi guard, chiseled into the solid rock o Lucerne the colossal form of the dyini Swiss Hon struck to the heart by i or spear, yet in his death agony still de nd fending the lilied shield of Frttnot What a wonderful statue ls that, whic thousands of tourists every year trav* miles and miles to study! But ns I stood before that murvcloii piece of stone under the shadow of tli overtowering Big! I snitl to myself thii "Yes, many Swiss soldiers have bec ?truck down hy foreigu bullets, bi more, far more, have brooded the lives away because their hearts ha\ pined under bomeeickness when tht bave been removed from the sight . yonder hills.'' When Nebuehadnezzi took his bride, Amytis, to tho glorioi capital of Babylon, she could not g over her longing for the hills of h childhood. Babylon was built In a fl country. To satisfy lier lougiug f the mountain scenes of ber youth h loving husband erected for his (jue the famous "hanging gardens." B whnt earthly king could erect for 1 loved ones such gigantic hills ns thc which cradle the youth of the Sw peasantry? We who were born in t mountainous countries of the Wt or east can sympathize witli thc Swiss peasnnts If we have been co pelled to live on prairie lauds and c never overcome our longing for 1 mountains. As the hills, tbe tnigt hills, have spoken of God to Amos, herdsman, they have also spoken to living among tbe mountains of western hemisphere. I thought tot I would try to find God among mountains. The Strength of God. The gigantic bills in tbe lirst pl teach us tbe omnipotent strength the God who created them. They se to speak to us something like this: man, why wilt thou uot look npon even ns thou wouldst regard the wo of human hands? When thou stum before the huge pyramids of Kg with their great blocks of stone t dost not sny they were built by a i of pygmies, about whom Humer Hesiod wrote. Thou dost not gc the moonlight and dream dreams u the Acropolis overlooking old AU and see there visions of its anc splendor, with its Parthenon and columns and its statuary and its i ble of purest white, and say there 1 not giants In those days. Thou not walk through the corridors of Alhambra, with its mosaic floors Its magnificent wnlls, and sny thal ancient Moors were not master ? teeta nnd master designers and mi workmen. Thou canst not study footprints of the Aztecs without st there thc Indentation of a great Is not a watchmaker greater thai own watch? Is not tbe naval d b) ite. time sited.

Is not the reator greater than the thing be cre tes? Therefore, ?> man, ls not the reator of the mountains a mighty, an mnlpotent God, because- he has cre ted me?" "Yes, yes," we answer,' the (JcmI of the hills must be an omuip- 01 tent God, for none but omnipotence w ould have luld their foundations and NCted their heights." Great ls the omnipotent power of Jod. No one mnn und no one race of nen could live long enough to do whut s necessary to do for the creation of he hills. We look with amassment lpmi the grMt cathedral called St. i'eter's of Borne. This cathedral was inpposed to have beeu begun by Michael Angelo In 1534. Every geu- , ?ration since then has bud a part iu Us j ?onstruction. But, though St. I'eter's >f Koine was building for !MXJ years, Hie seven hills upon which Home was originally built hnve been building for a longer time than that. Away , buck In the past millenniums God be? gan to collect the materials for the foundation of the hills. He spoke tbe word aud manufactured it gaseous sub Btance poor stuff, some people might j think out of which to build the strength of tlie hills, yet that was the first substance God created out of which to make the mountains. In all probability thia earth In the beginning was nothing but a nebulous gas. After I awhile God cooled this gas, transform- | ing lt from gaseous to liquid form. As a thousand years In his sight are but ns yesterday or a watch lu the night, God through long uges kept up the cooling process. He cooled this liquid substance until there was a thin crust over its surface, as a floating film might form on the surface of the cof? fee cooling on tho breakfast table. He kept on cooling the planet until wrin? kles und creeses begun to appear, like ridges on an orange skin afur the Juices have beeu squeezed out of lt. Then the waters ran down Into tbe val? leys or tbe ocean beds and the dry j land appeared. Theu the strength of the hills reveuled themselves in mighty mountain ranges, which run up nnd down tlie coutiuents, giving strength to the lund as the vertebra does to tLe human frame. The work went on for ages upon ages. The divine workman's tools were tire and storm nnd hail and pencil of ice and volcanic eruption. A mighty workman is God. Mighty nre the ele? ments and tbe times which he used as the menus for his creation of the hills. We must honor tlie divine strength of the Creator of the hills. That strength alone wns sufficient to pile up the Mat | terhoru und Mount Chimborazo and \ Mount Guultuhern und Mount Nevado de Soratn and Mount Everest. Om nlpotmt us well us eternnl ls our Lord. He alone hath created the hills and created us. Who is "He tbat forroeth the mountains aud treadetb upon the high places of the earth? The Lord, the God of hosts, ls his name." The H?-uu?r of the Mountains. But ns 1 go wauderlng ovec?the east? eru valleys with this herdsman of my I text I say to him: "Amos, why do you I praise the hills? Of course it ls rrght j and proper for oue of your poetic tem* 1 pernment to admire the gigantic cliffa and the rocks. In the evening hour lt if ilM let be Nt IM in iiii the ?ty the OS Om lay the ls beautiful to see the white clouds waviug their garments In the faces ol these grim monsters, but. Amos, yoi are not a Nimrod nor nn Esau. You d< not leave your flocks and as a mlghtj bunter pursue the wild goats that lea] from crag to cmg. You care nothiui about slaying the hungry lion, uules he comes down to steal one of you lambe. Why do you not praise tbe val leys and the greeu fields aud harvest and the orchards?" Theu I see the ol prophet turn and look nt me with quiet smile as he answers: "Friend, am praising the green fields and th vineyards aud the orchards when I ai praising tbe mountains. Do you nt know thut the beauty und fertility t the valleys are dependent upou tl strength of the hills'.' The stork bulk r her nest In tbe fir tree, tbe grass grov n for the cattle, the grapes hung hea\ u* upon tlie vines and the harvest flelt are filled with grain merely tyecau the mountains shed their waters In the valleys." Then I say, "Amt when thou art praising the God of tl hills thou art rendering thanks un the divine Creator, who feeds ai clothes and houses us." Theu the c prophet answers: "Yes, my son. T Lord of tbe hills ls the God who ls t practical provider for tbe everyd wants of his children." But though the God of thc hills fee and clothes us In the valleys, as feeds the birds of ihe air and t lilies of tbe field, how few of us e\ stop to think of his kindness nnd go? ness and care. Indeed we have be accustomed to be fed aud clothed him ho long thnt few of us ever si to give him thanks. We think I blessings hnve come from the soil a nre the works of our hands nnd i from his hills. We feel a great d toward God ns n little boy felt towi the enre of his father, with whon was talking some time ago. 1 father was playing with him and tl | lng bim. Tlie boy turned quickly i I said, "I don't like you." "What,' said to tlie boy, "you don't like y papa? What would you do If y pepe should die? Where would ; get your clothes?" "Oh," answe the boy, "mamma makes me tb Papa lins nothing to do with the i "Well," I said, smiling, "whose mo buys them, if not papa's?" "I be answered still more positiv I "mamma m&kes them: papa has n I Ing to do with them." Then I s 'But If your papa should die or away where would you get your ner?" Again the little fellow s "The grocerymau would bring that." "But who pays the groc niau?" "Nobody," said he: "all naamma hus to do ls to tell the mi Cured of Lame Back After 15 Y of Suffering. forth " I had been troubled with lame I ve a for fifteen years and I found a i n to' plete recovery in the use of Cl ?hich! berlain's Pain Balm," says Johi and.

We assert thnt God has nothing ) do with our homes because our mber ls turned Into the boards which re nailed Into the walls. "Oh, no," iys Amos, "that ls not true; the God f the hills waters the fields. He gives rink aud food to the flocks. He ourishes the trees Into mighty forests. t is God, nnd God alone, who provides ll." Ought we not to give thanks to bc God of the hills who clothes us nd feeds us today? An Iaeldent of Thackeray. The providing of our everyday wants book) be continually acknowledged be ore dod. Dr. Tuylor told a beautiful neldent about the life of William M. i'hackeray. After the author of "Vaul y Fair" had finished his American lec ure tour he was returning home. A'hen the ship was within a few hours if Liverpool there wns a farewell meet ng of the passengers In the main sa? loon. A prominent minister arose aud -.poke about as follows: "Frieuds, we must now part. I want to tell you how much I hnve enjoyed this trip. It is a solemn fact to know that most of us will never meet aguln until we as? semble at the Judgment seat of Christ." With that Mr. Thackeray arose and said: "It ls solemn to think that we are all to assemble at the Judgment seat of Christ, but lt ia even more sol? emn for me to think that every minute of every hour of every dny God ls hold? ing me In the hollow of bis hand and ls feeding me und clothing me wherever I may go. So, Instead of thinking about the Judgment seat at this time, If my fellow passengers ure willing, I would like to have our ministerial brother lead us In prayer and thank God for the cnre he has taken of us during the last ton days when we hnve been on shipboard together. No storm has wrecked us. No hu rm has come to us. We shall soon be at home with our friends." Aye, William If. Thackeray wns right. It ls our duty to think of the God of the Judgment, but lt is also our duty every day to thank the God of the hills who feeds aud clothes us nnd cures for us each morning and each noon aud each night, whether we ure awake or whether we are asleep. Shull we stop here? Was the east ern herdsman only symbolizing tb* strength of God and the care taklm providence of God lu tbe strength ant tbe power of tbe hills? Wus he no making allusion to tbe gold and thi silver burled lu the depths of tbe moun talus, and to the diamonds hidden li their subterranean vaults, and to thei many precious stones, some of whlcl St. John In Apocalypse saw in th walls of the New Jerusalem? Was h not using these stones as the syn)ho? of the Joy and the peace and jthe hat pluess of this world which comes fror Gpd to those who- Ure living lu ilos communion with God? I thluk he wai Furthermore, I believe Amos, th herdsman, uot. only found these syn bois of earthly happiness coming froi God by following the miners with the: little lights Into the ground, but ala by following the call of the bird, slni lug to him on the top of some moui tain ravine or in some hidden glen. Methinks 1 can follow this saint* herdsman as he some autumn duy hit away to the hills. We will call it I autumn day, for that ls the time win every tree becomes a Haming torc Amos is longing to go off for awlii and i>e alone willi Hod. He turns nv his sheep to the cure ot' one of t under shepherds. EXe takes his stt and climbs up the mountain sh Higher and higher he goes until 1 perched Ups cnll, "Drink, drink; gi rae drink." He reaches up and pu off a leaf from au overhanging bram He twists lt into a more beautil chalice than was ever handed forth the Egyptian cup bearers at Pharaoh court. Then he stoops down nnd ll up the witter out of the gushing sprli The rocks seem to close in about lil He seems to be tn a temple, and I witters nt his feet seem to be "b wnters," holy because they hnve bi touched by the finger of God. Tl he stretches his tired limbs upon couch of moss. Then the same b that called him from his herd n brings to him his companions, and tl begin to sing. A gentle eyed d pokes forth her head from the thic and seems to say: "Who art thou friend or an enemy? Dare I trust little fawn in thy sight while I que my thirst'.'" Then the leaves begli sway and sigh. That peace of woods comes over the happy proi as he says: "Yes, God has made mountains. God has made the g God has made the silver and precious stones burled here. He made the woods of the mountains, trees and the moss, the birds and flowers and the brightly colored lea He hus made the brooks to sing ns as his feathered songsters. Truly is the God of peace, the God of Joy, God of happiness. If mun ls unha then it is because as a sinner be ls of touch with God." Do you feel in the symbols of tlie gold, the si the precious stones and the moist, grant leaves of the woods Ame speaking today'.' The Ood of ForRlvenesa. The God of peace of the niounl is also the God of forgiveness ami don. We see the strong limbed bi start forth for the chase.

But I must not stop here, even if I ;vould. The love of God ls found In the itrength of the hills, but God's limit of 'orgiveness und pardon are found there -Uso. Though God is ready to receive as If we come to him now, the figure ot my text distinctly proves that there will come a time when he will say: "Not unto all who call 1,-ord, Lord, unto me will I open unto them, for unto many In that day I will say, I kuow you uot." The future destruc? tion of the hills symbolizes lt. There is a limit to God's patience. Did you ever stop to think that as hills have a time In which they were created they shall also have a time In wblch tiley shall die? indeed, mauy of tbe bills of the past have died already. Once, says the legend, a continent ridged with the highest of mountain chains stretched Itself between the old world and tlie new. The Azores aud the denary islands are claimed to have lieen the tops of these very mountulns. The Mayas, the original luhabltants of Yucatan at the time of the conquest of Peru by Pizarro, were supposed to have been related to the ancient Itt* hnbltunts of this sunken continent, which was called Atlantis. Among the Mayas the hlstorlnn finds ulm., .t the same kind of worship whicb was practiced among the Inhabitants of the Nile. Yucatan architecture ls very similar to the Egyptian architecture. Kvery student knows how characteris? tic Egyptian architecture was and la today. Home of the ancient writers make mention of this strange Island continent. Slr Thomas More founded bis Utopia there. Yet the student of deep sea soundings finds that the leg endury continent of Atlantis, with all its mighty hills, was at lust sunk lu the mighty deep. Opportunity Mar Be Loaf. In Java, a few years ago, the great Krakatoa volcano, after erupting for a few days, suddenly exploded. The is lnnd of .lava was literally spilt In twain. Sixty thousand corpses floated upon the surface of the sea. A groat tidal wave forty feet high arose aud swept on and lifted a German man of wnr nnd curried lt twenty miles Inland and there left lt stranded. Java ls today over 200 miles from India. There are many reasons to believe thut thia island was once connected with the mainland. The inhabitants of India and Java have the same customs. They speak almost the same language. They worship the same gods.** In their for? ests they bunt the same kinds of wnd beasts as age found In India! Yet all of that connecting belt of,, 200 miles of laud with Ita mountains bas entirely disappeared. As the God of the hills ls some day goiug to destroy his mountains, some day be ls going to destroy our rejected opportunities for salvation. Thus, my friends, as we look off unto the bills, as did the psalmist, from whence cometh our strength, do you not And in the future destruction of these hills the foreshad? owed rejection of souls that bave re? fused year after year to come and bow at the foot of the cross which was once planted upon the top of a small moun? tain called Calvary'.' IIow many people are huggiug to their hearts the false hope that th" mountains of God's purdou will re? main firm for them to climb, even from the weakness and helplessness of a deathbed! Do not procrastinate. I bave read of travelers lost on the des? ert. Without a drop of water, with swollen lips und thick tongues, they staggered on until they dropped. Sud? denly off In the distance they saw a beautiful mountain. There the streams were flowing and the rustling leaves and the singing brooks were calling them to come and drink and live. The dying men were aroused. They rushed OH toward this beautiful mountain un? til, In a moment, it disappeared. It was nothing but a mountain of optical illusions, u mountain of mists, a moun? tain of false hopes, u mountain which was a mirage. So will it be with those who are forever putting off their opportunities for salvation. Mny Oed lead us, one and al!, not to follow the delusive hope that In some future time we can seek pardon. He promises to pardon not tomorrow, but today. Come into the mountains of Salvation. Come Into the mountains of his forgiveness, of his strength, of his love. Come and stand upon the mountain of Calvary, with ull its pardon, with all its atone? ment. There you shall find peace and joy. This Calvary ls a mountain which is uot n mirage. It shall never fude away.

The German empress usually spends her summers at Kudlnen, on the north? east coast of Prussia. Kudlnen ls such | small vilfage that its railway station is simply a waiting room.

The following postal curd story le told In thc British Weekly: The author Of lt says tbat while purchasing post cards In a city shop "I selet-ted, among others, some excellent photographs of Dr. Clifford and Pastor Thomas Spur? geon. They were marked twopence each, but the shop assistant who made out the bill charged only a penny. She glanced at them ngain as I pointed out thc original price and then replied very decidedly, 'No, madam; all the actors and actresses are reduced to a penny!"'
