Pelt. 55.— In the Urook- tsibprmicle this fore-noon, KC.-V. t)r. c chose for the subject of his -Sermon "Tbo lluirum Fsice," mid held Ills great ntullctiee fn.scinii ted with the «harm of bis eloquence, as he discoursed on a subject of universal interest .the. -text. wan Kcclcsia«tcs 8:5: "A man's wisdom imikcth his face to shine and the boldness of his face shall be -clinngcd," or, as it may be rendered, "the sourness of his face -shall be sweetened." 'J'hnK a little change in our Kngllsb translation brings out the better nic!.ning of the text, which sets forth that the character of • the la do is decided by the character of tlie soul. The tnain features of our countenance •wore. decided by the Almighty, and we •can not chiingc them; but under we decide, whether wo shall countenances, benignant or .sour or sweet, wrath- or genial, benevolent or , or .scoundrelly, impudent •or modest, couratreons or cowardly. ••frank or sneaking. In all the works .of (!o(l there is nothing more, wonderful than the s hunmn countenance, "Though the longest face is less than twelve inches from the hair line of the forehead to the bottom of the chin.nnd the broadest face is less than eight inches from cheek bone to cheek bone, yet in -that small compass God hath , -wrought such differences that the six.-teen hundred million of the human Htice may Juc distinguished from each -other by their facial appearances. The i-fiiee is -ordinarily the index of character. It is the throne of the emotions. ;Ifc is the battle-field of the passions. Jit Is the catalogue of character. It is the map of the mind. It is tho geo- igraphy of the soul. And while tho Lord decides before our birth whether wo .shall be hnrid- •tsomc or homely, we arc by the •ch a racier ;• wo, : form /.deciding w h c th e r •our countenances shall be pleasant or •disagreeable. This is so much so that rnorae of the most beautiful faces arc .unattractive, because of their arro- .gancc or their deceitfulness, and some •of the most rugged and irregular features arc attractive because of the kindness that shines through them. Accident, or sickness, or scarification •may veil the face so that it shall not •ex lib-ess the soul, but in the majority •of cases give me a deliberate look at a man's countenance and 1 will toll you xvhethcr he is 'a' cynic or an optimist, whether he is a miser or a philanthropist, where he is noblp or igno- -ininious, whether he is good or bad. Our first impressioq of a man or woman is generally the accurate impression. You at the first glance make *-.p your mind that some man 5s unworthy of your friendship, but afterward by circumstances being- put into intimate association with him, come to like him and trust him. Vet, stay with him long enough, and you. will be compelled to return to .your original estimate of his character, but it will be after he has cheated voti out of every thing he could lay his Mi.inds on. It is of God's mercy that we have these outside indices ofchar- ,-acter. Phrenology is one index, and nvhilc it may be carried to an absurd -extent, there is no doubt that, you can judge somewhat of a man's character the shape of his bead. Palmistry us another index, and while- it may bo uarried into the fanciful and necromantic, there is no doubt that certain lilies in the palm of the hand are indicative of mental and moral traits. il'hysiognomy is another index, and •while the contour of the human face; .may sometimes mislead us, we can gen 'in-ally, after looking into the eye and noticing the curve of the lip and the spread •of the nostril, and the correllution of all the features, come to a right estimate of a. roan's character. Jf it were not so, how would wo know whom to • trust and 'Whom to avoid'.' Whether wo will or not, physiognomy decides a thousand things in commercial and financial, and social, and religious domains. i'rom one lid of the .Bible to rthc other there is no science so rec- -afruized as that of physiogonomy, and •nothing more thoroughly tuke'n for granted than the power of- the soul to transfigure 'live fact-. The I'.ible speaks •of the "face of God," the "face of Jesus Christ," the "face of lOsuu," the "face of Israel," the "face of .lob," the "face of the old man," the shin- Ing "face of Moses," the wrathful •face of Pharaoh," the ushes on the I'aec of humiliation, tlie resurree •tionary staff on the face of the dea< -ehild, the hypocrites dis/iguriitj their face, and in my text the Uibl declares, "A man's wisdom mukedi his .•ace to shine and the sourness of his shall be sweetened."' if the Itible SQ much to *>ay about physiog- .,-unuy, we do uot wonder that tht world has uiade it a. study from tho •.-a*iy iigefc. Jn vaiii the English p ar - .iwiueut iu the time of George II. or- -4erwi publicly whipped arid iwpris- , pued Uiose who studied physiognomy. Intelligent people always have studied it and always will study it. The pens -of Moses, aud Joshua, and Job, ;uid ,4Hid Jpl»«, aud Paul, as well as of Homer, »nd Hippocrates, and Galen, and At-istotle, and Socrates, and Plato, Luyater have been dipped into and \yJiole libraries of wfeeut lia-ye bi-eu gu-rncrecl o« tbenje.

They are ballelu- jn.hs a-lighted. They every woninfi would like to have l»een made a Josephine. Wo all want to be agreeable. Our useful ness depends so much tipon it that I, ,,,... consider it important and Christian for look'like no ono under every man itmt woman to be as agree- to God and man volt nble «s possible, The slouch, the ' sloven,the man who does not care how he looks, all such people lack equipment for usefulness. A minister who has-to throw a quid of tobacco ont of bis mouth before ho begins to preach, or Christians with beard tmtrimmcd, making them to look like wild beasts come out of the lair, yea, unkempt, uncombed, unwashed, >,disagreeable nen or women, area hindrance to ro- igion more than a recommendation. _ Now, my text suggests how we may, independent of features, make ou'r- •sclvcH agreeable: "A man's wisdom maketh his face to shino and the sourness of his face shall be sweetened." What I say may come too late for many. Their countenance may by long years of hardness have been frown into stolidity: or by long years of cruel behavior they may have llerod- iHcdaH the machinery of expression: or by long years of avarice they may have been shyloeked until their face is as hard as the precious metnl they aro hoarding: but I am in time to holp multitudes if the Lord will. That it is possible to overcome disadvantages, of physiognomy was in this country mightily illustrated by one whose life recently closed after having served in the presidential eiibiticfc at Washington. By accident of fire in childhood his face hud been more piteously scarred than any human visa go that. 1 ever saw. By hard, study he rose from being ji poor boy to the "very height of the legal profession, and when an attorney-general for the United States was needed he entered the presidential cabinet. What a triumph over dcsti-oyed human countenance! 1 do not wonder that When an opposing attorney in a Philadelphia, court room cruelly referred to this personal disfigurement, I.enjaniin F, Krcwster replied in these words: "When 1 was a- babe 1 was a. beautiful bhic-eyod child. 1 know this because my dear dead mother told me so; but I was one day pluying with my .sister, when her clothes took Hre. arid Iran to her relief and saved her, but in doing so my clothes took fire, and tho tire was not put out until my face was as black as the heart of the scoundrel who has just now rofc-rrcd to my disfigurement." Heroism conquering physical disabilities! That .scholarly regular features arc not necessary tu-e Christ re-incarnated. I do not care what yotir features are or whether yon look like your father, or your mother, or tho heavens— ,, , , ., are beautiful. Michael Angelo, the sculptor, visiting Florence, some ono showed him in a back yard a piece of marble that was so shapeless it seemed of no use, stud Angelo was asked if he could make anything out of it, and if so was told he could own it. The artist took tho marble, and for nine months shut himself up to work, first trying to make of it a statue of David with his foot on Goliath, but the marble was not quite long enough at the base to make the. prostrate form of the giant, and so the artist fashioned the marble into another figure that is to be famous for all time because of its expressiveness. A critie came in and was asked by Angclo for his criticism, and he said it was beautiful, but the nose of the statue was not of right shape. Angelo picked up from the floor some sand and tossed ft about the face of the statue, pretending ho was using his chisel to mttke the improvement suggested by the critic. "What do you think of it now?" said the artist. "Wonderfully improved," said the critic. "Well," said the artist, "I have not changed it at all." My friends the grace of God eoincs to the heart of a man or woman and then attempts to change a forbidding and prejudicial face into attractiveness. Perhaps the face is most unpromising for the divine sculptor. But having changed the heart it begins to work on the countenance with celestial chisel, and into all the lineaments of the fiicc puts a gladness and an expectation that changes it from glory to glory, and thaugh earthly criticism may. disapprove of this or that in the appearance of tlie face. Christ says of the. newly created countenance 'that which Pilate said of him, ".Behold the man!" Here is another mighty chisel for the countcn.inrjcj ami you may call it re-' venge. or hate, or malevolence. This spirit having taken possession of the heart it encamps seven devils under the eye-brows. It puts cruelty into the compression of the lips. You can tell from tho man's looks that he is pursuing some one and trying to get even with him. There are suggestions of Aero and l.obespierre, and TMocle- tia,n, and thumbscrews, and rucks all up and down the features. Infernal artists with murderers' daggers have been cutting away at that the signing of my name will make him and his family." Kindness! It makes the face to shine while life lasts-, and after death puts a summer sunset between the still lips and the smoothed hair, that makes me say sometimes at obsequies, "She seems too beAutiful to bury." But here comes another chisel, and its iiame is hypocrisy. Christ with one terrific stroke in his Sermon on the Mount described this character: "When ye fast bo not as the hypo* crites, of a sad countenance; for they disfigure their faces that they may appear unto men to fast." Hypocrisy having taken possession of the soul it immediately apbears in the countenance. Hypocrites are always solemn. They carry several country graveyards in their faces. They are tearful When there is nothing to cry about, and in their prayers they catch for their breath, and have such general dolefulness that they disgust young people with religion. We had one of them in one of my churches. When he exhorted he always deplored the low state of religion in other people, and when ho prayed it was an attack of hysteria, and he went into a paroxysm of ohs and ahs that seemed -to demand resuscitation. He went on in that way until we had to expel him from church for stealing.,! he property intrusted to him as administrator, and for other vices that I will not mention, and he wrote mo several letters not at all complimentary from the _wcst saying that ho was daily praying for my everlasting destruction. A man can not have hypocrisy in. his heart without somehow showing it in his face. All intelligent people who witness it know it is nothing- but a dramatization. Here comes another chisel, and that belongs to the old-fashioned religion. It first takes possession of the whole soul, washing out its sins by the blood of the Lamb and startling heaven right there and then. This done deep cto°vn in the heart, religion says: "Now let me go. up to the windows and front gate of the face and set up some signal that I have taken possession of this castle. I will celebrate thxi victory by an illumination that no one can mistake. ' I have made this man happy and 1 will make him look visage. for making powerful impression, wit- I The revengeful heart has built its per- ncsslaul, who photographs himself as I dition in the revengeful countenance ,\°, .?„ , y . l 1WJScnce weak;" and George I "Disfiguration of diabolic passion' \Vlntefleld, whoso eyes were struck ' with strabismus; and Alexander II. .Stephens, who sat with pale and sick face in invalid's chair while he thrilled the American consrress with his eloquence; and thousands of invalid preachers,and Sunday school teachers, and Christian workers. Aye. tho most glorious being the world ever .saw was foreseen by Isaiah who described his face bruised,and gashed, and Kcuri.'-'-t and sain of him, "Ills visage was si- marred more than any man." So yon see that the loveliest fai-e in the universe was a scarred face. And now I am going tn tell you of some of the chisels thai work for tlie disflguration or irradiation of the human coiuitemmec. One of the sharp est and most destructive of those chisels of the eountennnce is cynicism. That sours the disposition and then sours the face, it gives a contemptuous en r! to Hi,, lip. if, t i,. UW(S down the corners of the mouth and inflates the nostril as with a nmlodor. What David said in haste they say in their deliberation: "All men ' are liars;" everything is going ( 0 ruin. All men and women are bad, or going to be. Society and the chm-ch are on the downgrade. Tell them of an act of benevolence, and thev say ho iravc* that to advertise They do not like- the present fashion of iiuts for "•omen, or of coa t.s for men. They aro opposed to the administration,, municipal, and state, and national.' Somehow, food does not taste- as it used to and they wonder why there aro no ports, or orators, or preachers as when they were boys. Even Solomon, one of the wisest, and at one time one of the worst, of men, falls into the pessimistic mood, and cries out in the twenty-first chapter of Proverbs, '.'Who can find a virtuous woman. 1 " If Jio mid behaved himself better and kept ... good associations, he would not have written that interrogation point implying the scarcity of good womanhood. Cynifism, if a' habit, as His with ten of thousands of people, writes itself all over the features; many sour visages all up and tho street, all up and down,the and the world. One gqod way t,6 make the world worse is 'to say it is worse. Let a depressed and fiij-ebod- ing opinion of everything take possession of yon for twenty years, and you will be a sight to behold. It is the chastisement of God that', when 'a man allows his heart to • be cursed with cyneisiu his face becomes gloomed, and scowled, and " " blasted with the But here comes another chisel to shape the countenance, and it is kindness, There came a moving day, and into her soul moved tho whole family of Christian graces, with all the children and grandchildren, and the command has come forth from the heavens that that woman's face shall be made to correspond with her superb soul. I lor entire face from car to cur becomes the canvas on which all tho best artists of heaven begin to put their h'nest strokes, and on the small com- puss of that face are put pictures of sunrise over 1 be sea, and angels of mercy going up and down ladders all a-llash, and mountains of transfiguration and noon-day in heaven. Kindness) It is the most magnificent sculptor that ever touched human countenance. Xo one could wonder at tho unusual geniality in the face of William \Vindom, secretary of the treasury of the I'nitod States, after seeing him at the Xew York banquet just before ho dropped dead, turning his wine, lass upside down, saying: "I may by doing this offend some, but by not do- ! ng it, / might damage many." Be. v-ind to your friends. Be kind to your enemies. Be kind to tho young.' Be Iv'ind to the old Be kind to your rul- M-S. lie kind to your servants. Be kind to your superiors. Be, kind to your inferiors. He kind to your horse. Be. kind to your dog. Bo kind to your cat. Jlorniug, noon and night bo kind and the effects of it will be written in the language of your face. That is tho gospel of physiognomy. A liayonuo merchant was 111 tno south of Europe for his health, and sitting on the front terrace ono morning in his inviilidism, lu; saw a rider Hung from a horse into the river, and without thinking of bis own weakness the merchant ilung oft' his invalid's 7iovv happy. 1 will draw the corners of his mouth as far up as they were drawn down. I will take the "contemptuous curl away from the lip and nostril. I will make his eyes flash and his cheeks glow at every mention of Christ and heaven. I will' make oven the wrinkles of his face look like furrows plowed or the harvests of joy. I wHl make w-hat wo call the 'crow's foot' around his temples suggestive that the dove of peace has boon alighting there," There may be. signs of trouble on that face, but trouble sanctified. There may be scars of battle on that-faee, but they will be scars of campaigns won. rocking chair by the, stoW. fri the old, farm house. Or, VMSS it yonf mother's face? A good mother's face is never homely to her boys and girls. It is a Madonna in the picture gallery of tho memory. What a sympathetic face it vvas! Did you ever have a joy and that face did not respond to it? Did you ever have a grief and no tears trickled down that maternal cheek? Did you ever do a bad thing and a shadow 'did not cross it? Oh, it was a sweet face! The spectacles, with large, round glasses through which she looked a,t you, how sacredly they have baett kept in bureau or closet! Your mother's face, your mother's smiles, your mother's tears! What an overpowering memory! Though you have come on to mid-life, or old a£e, how you would like just once more to bury your face iti her lap and have a good cry. But 1 can tell you of it, more sympathetic, and more tender, and' more loving face than any of the faces I have mentioned. "No, you can not," says some-one. I can, and 1 will. It is the face of .leans Christ as he was on earth and is nihv • in, • heaven.' When preparing my Lifo of Christ, entitled "From Manger tt> Throne," I ransacked tho art galleries and portfolios of the world to find a picture o-f our Savior's face that might be most expressive, and I saw it as Francesco Francia painted it in- the sixteenth century, and as the emerald intaglio of the sixth century presented it, and as a fresco in the catacombs near Rome preserved it, arid as Leonardo Du Vinci showed it in "The Last Supper," and I looked in the Louvre, and the Luxembourg, and the Vatican, and the Dresden, and the Merlin, and Neapolitan, and London galleries for the most inspiring face of Christ, and many of the presentations, ware wonderful for pathos and majesty, and power, and execution; but although I selected that by.Ary SchefEeras in some respects the most express;ve t I feltaswe all feel, that our Christ has never yet been presented either 'in sculpOurc- or painting, and that we will have to wait until we rise to the upper palace, where we shall see him as he is. What a gentle.face it must have,.beon to induce the babes to, struggle out of their mothers' arms into his arras! What an expressive face it must have been when one reproving look of it threw stalwart Peter into a fit of tears! What a pleading- face it must have .been to lead the Psalmist in prayer to say of it, "Look upon the face of Thine 'Anointed." What a sympathetic face it must, have been to encourage the sick- woman who was beyond any help from the doctors to touch the" hem of his garment! What a suffering face it must have been when suspended on perpendicular and horizontal IMPURE BLOOD Boils, Pimples, Humors, Cured by Hood's, The following tiwtlinontnl from Mr. Cleorsro W teraat "it"l 1 > t ° r " f ' flfowo "'' 'own, I. of speoliil In- tost miuiltloH (if Hondas Snrl'i'pnrltl.!': l>lood -J" 1rlf -'* or about two or tltroo yours t vriis troubled with plinples or hollB on my focc and body, Getting Worse and Worse n-rt ml Hoottt* «iirsnpnrllln wns .!». trig am clocklert to try It.

I'oople laughed ut the lion because he spared tlio mouse that ran over him, when by one motion of his paw the monster .conid have crushed the insignificant disturber.

Then the moiise g«a>ved off the ropes and let the lion go free. You may wansider yourself » lion, but you can not afford to despise a mouse. When Abraham. Lincoln pardoned a young soldier at the request of his mother, the mother went down the stairs of the white hou*e baying, "They have lied about the President's, bying homely; he is the handsomest man I ever saw."

" My friend, th reason probably is that they were no converted until late in life." Worldli ness and sin had boon at work wit] their chisels on that face for thirty o forty years, and Grace, the divine sculptress, has been busy with her chisel only tivo or ton years. Do no be surprised that Phidias and Grec nongh with their lino chisels can not in a short while remove all the murks of tho stonemason's crowbar which has been busy there for a long while. I say to all the young, if you would have sympathetic face, hopeful face, courageous face, cheerful "face, kind face, ut the earliest possible moment, by the grace of God, have planted in your soul sympathy, and hope, and courage, and good cheer, and kindness. No man ever indulged ••> gracious fooling, or was moved by a righteous indignation, or was stirred by a benevolent impulse, but its effect was more or less indicated in the countenance; while David noticed the physiognomic oft'ect of a bad disposition when he suid, "A wicked man hardcn- eth his face," and Jeremiah must have noticed it when ho said of the cruel, •'They have made their faces harder than a rock." Oh, the power of tho human face! I warrant that you have known faces so magnetic and "impressive that, though they vanished long ago, they still hold yon with u holy spell. How Jong since your child' wont:' "Well," you say, "if she had lived she would huvo been ton years old now, or twenty, or thirty years." I Jut does wot that infant fuco still have tender supremacy over your entire nature? Puring many an eventide does it not look at you? In your dreams do you not see U? What a sanctifying, hallowing inftueuce it has been in your life. You can say in the words of {ho poet: "Better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all." Or, it may huyo been u sister's face. Perhaps she was the invalid of the - family, perhaps bhe nover went out except on very clear days, and then she had to be carried down the stairs to the piazz^, or for a short ride, but she was so patient and cheerful under it all. As that face looks at you through the years with whutan elevated and heavenly emotion you are filled. Or, w»s it father's face? The storms of life soijiewhat roughened it A good deal pieces of the wood of martyrdom, and his antagonists slapped the pallid cheek with their rough hands, and befouled it with the saliva of their blasphemous lips! What a tremendous face it must have been to lead Saint John to describe it in the coming judgment as scattering- the universe whe°u ho says, "From whoso face the earth and the heaven fled away, Oh.

And he gave a great bite at the first red-cheeked appla in his hand. Quick as a flash, out came the birch, and with equal skill at repartee, the pedagogue said; "If anyone knows any reason why this rod should not warm the jacket of Tom Reed, let him speak now, or forever after holcl his peace." "I do!" said Tom. "Name it," replied the master. "Incompatibility!" He did not get thst whippin . A sudden gust of wind took a p.vr sol from the hi»nd of tha owner, says the Scottish American, and ft lively little Irishman, dropping his hod of •bricks, caught the parachute.
