\(JK*S SK HOISTED FOR GOD, SUNDAY'S SUBJECT. the Following T«rt; "In the *»f Ooa W4S Will But Up the of Truth and lUffhteonsneM Rn<J •t Ararto* nnd Riches**— PwUna* SO:5. HATE war! In my boyhood we -may have read the biography of Alexander or o£ some revolutionary hero until our young heart beat high and we wished we had been born over a hundred years ago, just for the glory of striking down a Hessian. For rusty fiwords hung up on the rafters and bul- •lets cut out of log houses In which they •were lodged during'the great strife we ' had unbounded admiration, or on some public day, clothed In our grandfather s Soldierly accoutrements, we . felt as grave as Garibaldi or Mlltiades. ^e are wiser now, for we make a vast distinction between the poetry and the prose of war. The roll of drums and ' the call of bugles, and, the-champing of steeds foaming and pawing for the battle; a hundred thousand muskets gllt- tc'rlng among the dancing plumes; "God Savo'the King" waving up from clarionets and .trumpets and rung back from deep deflias or the arches of a prostrate city: distant capitals of kingdoms Illuminated at the tidings: generals, returning home under flaming arches and showering amaranths and the shout of empires: that Is poetry.' Chilled and half-blanketed, lying oh the w«t earth: feet sore with the march and bleedlnr at the slightest touch: Lunger pulling on every fiber of flesh or attemptlp"! to satisfy Itself with a ficanty and spoiled ration: thirst licking up the dew or drinking out of filthy and trampled ; pool:~~thoi)ghts~ot home and kindred far away while just on the eve of a deadly strife, where death may leap on him from any one of 9. hundred bayonets: the closing in of two armies, now changed to a hundred, thousand maniacs: the ground slippery •with blood and shattered flesh: fallen ones writhing under the hoofs of unbridled chargers maddened with 'pain: the dreadfulness of night that comes down when 'the strife Is over: the struggle of the wounded ones crawling out over the corpses: the long, feverish agony^ of the crowded barrack and hospital, from whose mattresses the fragments of men send up their groans, the only music of carnage and butchery: desolate homes from- which fathers and husbands and brothers and'Bonp went off: without giving any dying: messaga or sending a kiss to the. dear ones at home, tumbled into the uoldiers' grave trench, and houses in which a few weeks before ' unbroken family circles rejoiced, now plunged in 'the great sorrows of widowhood and 'orphanage: that is prose.' But there is now on the earth a kingdom which has sot itself up for conflicts jwithout oumber.^In its march - it tramples no grain fields, it sacks no cities, it impoverishes no treasuries, it fills no hospitals, it bereaves no families. The courage and victory of Solferlno and Magenta without carnage. The kingdom of Christ against the kingdom of Satan. That is the strife now raging. We will offer no armistices: '-we will make no treaty. "Until all ^he revolted nations of the earth shall submit again to King Emanuel, "In the name of God we will set up our banners." Every army has Its ensigns. Long —before the time when David wrote "the text they were In use. The hosts of Israel displayed them. The tribe of Benjamin carried a flag with the in' acriptlon of a wolf. The tribe of. Dan a representation of cherubim. Judah a lion wrought Into the groundwork of white, purple, crimson, and blue. Such flags from their folds shook fire Into the hftfcrts of auch numbers as were in " the field when Abljah fought against Jehoram, and there were twelve hundred thousand soldiers, and more than five hundred thousand were left dead on the field. These ensigns gave hero' lam to such numbers *as were assembled when Asa fought against Zerah,. and there were one million five hundred and eighty thousand troops in the battle. The Athenians carried an inscription of the owl, which was their emblem of -wisdom, The flags of modern nations are familiar to you all, and Siany of them so inappropriate for the character pf the nations they represent U would be Impolitic to enumerate them. Theso ensigns are streamers borne on the point of a lance and on the top of wooden shafts. They are carried In the front and rear of armies. They unroll from the xuaiu-top-gallant- ajaat-head • ot an' Admiral's flagship to Siatlugulah it among other ships of the cwfie squadron. They are the objects of ipktional pridft Th<? loss of them on the Held is Ignominious. Tie three baatfers of the Lord's hosts &ra the banner of proclamation, the tenner of recruit, and the banner of tlctory.

God pronounced it very good at tbo beginning. Though a wandering child of God, I see in It yet the Great Pather'a lineaments. Though toseed and driven by the storms of six thousand years, she sails bravely yet, and as at her launching in the beginning thel morning stars sang together and all the sons ot Qod shouted for Joy» so at last, when comlcg Into the calm harbor of God's mercy, she shall be greeted by the huzzas of glorified kingdoms. It is not the world against which we contend, but Its transgressions. Whatever Is obstinate in the will, degrading In passion, harmful in custom, false in friendship, hypocritical in profession— against all this Christ makes onset. From fatee profession he would tear the mask. From oppression he would snatch the rod. From pride he would rend off the plumes. • From revenge he would exorcise the devil. While Christ loved the world so much he died to save it, he hates sin-so well that to eradicate the list trace of its pollution- he will utterly consume the continents and the oceans. At the gate of Eden the declaration of perpetual enmity was made against the serpent The tumult roun- about Mount Sinai was only the roar and flash of God's artillery of wrath against sin. Sodom on fire was only one of God's flaming bulletins announcing hostility. Nineveh and Tyre and Jerusalem in awful ruin mark the track of Jehovah's advancement. They show that God was-terribly in earnest when he announced himself abhorrent of all iniquity. They make us believe that though nations belligerent and revengeful may bign articles of peace and come to an amicable adjustment, there shall bo no cessation, of hostilities between the forces of light and the forces of darkness until the kingdoms of this world have become the kingdoms of our Lord. Affrighted by no opposition, discouraged by no temporary defeats, shrinking from no exposure—every man to his position, while from the top of our schools, and churches and seminaries and asylums, "In the name of God we will set up our banners." s . Again, it was the custom In ancient times, for the purpose of gathering armies, to lift an ensign on the top of some high hill, so-that all who saw it would feel.Impelled to rally around it. In more modern times the same plan has been employed for the gathering of an army. Thus it is that the Church' of Christ lifts its flag for recruits. The Cross of Jesus is our standard, planted on the hill of Calvary. Other armies demand that persons desiring to enter the lists of war'shall be between such and such an age, lest the folly of extreme youth or the infirmity of ad-" vanced age be a clog rather than an advantage. But none are too young' for Christ's regiment: none can be too old. The hand that is strong enough to bound a bail or trundle a hoop is skilled enough to fight for Christ, while many a hand trembling with old age has grasped the arrow of truth, and with a dim eye close to it, taking aim, has.sent its sharp point right through the heart of the King's enemies. Many of you have long ago had, your names written on the roll of celestial troops, and you like the service well, although you now bear the scars of multitudinous conflicts and can recount many a long'march, and tell of siege-guns opened on you that you thought never would be spiked. But there may be some who have not yet enlisted. Your being here implies that you are seriously thinking about it, and your attention makes me hope you are only looking for the standard to be hoisted. Will you not, a. hundred of you, with all the aroused enfifu¥i[asm~of your na^ ture, come bounding into the ranks, while "In the name of God we set up our banners?" Through natural modesty do you hold back and say, "I will be" of no advantage to Christ; I am too awkward to learn the step of the host, or to be of any service In the shock of battle?" To you I make the reply, Try it. Ona hour under Christ's drill, and you would so well understand his rules that the flrst step of your march heavenward would make the gates of hell tremble on * v ">lr hinges. We may not be as polished and trim a« many Christians we havo, and we may not aa well understand sharp-shooting, but there IB rough work which we can all accomplish. We may be axe-men, and hew a pathway through the forests. We may be spadesmen, and dig the trenches or throw up the fortifications. We do not care where, we do not care \vhat-- if we can only help in the cause of our King and Bhout as loudly. as any of them at the completion of the conquest There are non-professors who have a very correct idea of what Christians ought to be. You have seen members of the church who were as proud as Ahab and lied aa badly as Ananias, and who were aa foul hypocrites as Judas. You alhor all that. You say followers of Christ ought to be honorable, humble, and aelf-denying, and charitable, and patient, and forgiving. Amen I So they ought. Come into the kingdom of Christ, my hearer, and be Just thait glorious Christian that you have described. Every .church has : enough stingy men in it to arrest its charities, and enough proud men la it to grieve away the Holy Ghost, and enough lazy men in hang on behind till its wheels, like Pharaoh's chariots, drag heavily, and enough worldly men to exhaust the patience of the very elect, and enough snarly men to make appropriate the Bibje warning, "Beware of dogs." If any pf you men on the Outside of the kingdom expect to make each Christians as that, we do not want you to coiae, for the church baa already & jalllioa members too many of Just Ida*!. W« do jftot.wsat our ranks wita watte when w« can toavw •Tt\\- MY of *»*. *» to - I" f *,)tfi!« r, in the heart, the devil of avarice, devil of hist, or the do.vll of pride. Men of the world, If you would be transformed and elevated by the power o! tbo pospcl, now is the time to come. It Is no mean ensign t lift this hour. It Is a tlire-honored flag. It has been in terrific battle. • Draggled In the dust of a Saviour's humiliation from Bethlehem t6 Calvary. Rent by hell's onset, the epears of a maddened soldiery, and the fcands of the men who aald, "Let him be crucified." -With this ensign in his bleeding hand the Saviour sealed the heights of our sin. With this he mounted the walls of perdition, and amid its very smoke, "and flame, and blasphemy he waved his triumph, while demons howled with defeat, and heaven Thronged his chariot wheels And bore him to his throne; Then swept their golden harps, and suns, A The glorious work is done. - We go not alone to the Held. Wo have Invincible allies in tho dumb elements of nature. As Job;sald, we are In league with the very stones of tho field. The sun by day and the moon by night, directly or Indirectly, shall favor Christianity. The stars in their courses are marshaled for us, as they fought against Slsera. The winds of heaven are now as certainly acting in favor of Christ as In reformation times the Invincible Armada, in its pride, ap^- proached the coast of England. As that pioud navy directed their guns agalnst-the friends of Christ and religious liberty, God said unto his winds, "Seize hold of them," and to the sea, "Swallow them." The Lord, with his tempests, dashed their hulks together and splintered them on the rocks until the flower of Spanish pride and valor lay^.crushed among tho waves of the sea 'beach. All are ours. Aye 1 God the Father, God tho Son; and God the Holy Ghost are our allifls. _ ; The Mohammedans, In their struggle to subjugate the world, had passages from the Koran inscribed on the blades of their sclmltera, and we have nothing to fear if, approaching the Infidelity and malice that oppose the.klngdom of Christ, we shall hayo glittering on our swords the words of David to the giant, "I come to thee in the name of tho Lord of Hosts, the God of the armies of Israel, whom thou has defied." Now the Church goes forth bearing precious seed, but after awhile It will be the sheaf -binding, 'and reaper angels shall shout the harvest home. Now it is tents and marching and exposure, but then in the ranks of prostrate iniquity and on the very walls of heaven, "In the name of God we will set up our banners. '•*-,• ' • You know in ancient times elephants were trained to fight, and that .on, one. occasion, instead of attacking the enemy, they turned upon their owners and thousands • were crushed under the stroke of their trunks and the mountain. weight of their step. These mighty opportunities of work for Christ may accomplish great things in overthrowing the sin of. the world and beatingL to pieces its errors, but if we do not wield them aright these very advantages will, in unguarded moments, turn terjlbly upon us and under their heels of vengeance grind us to powder. Rejected blessings, are seven-fold curses. .We cannot compromise this matter. We cannot stand aside and look on. Christ lias declared it: "All who are not with me are against me." Lord Jesus, we surrender. The prophecies, intimate that there Ahall before the destruction _ of _._th(L world be one great battle .between truth and unrighteousness. We shall not probably see it on earth. God grant that we may see it, bending from the battlements of heaven. On the side of sin shr 11 be arrayed all forma of oppression and cruelty, led on by infamous kings and generals. The votaries ot Paganism, led on by their priests. The subjects of Mohammed- ism, following the command of their shleks. And gluttony and intemperance and iniquity of every phase shall be largely represented t>n the field. AH the wealth and splendor and power and glory of wickedness shall be concen- tered on that one decisive spot, and maddened by ten thousand previous defeats, shall gather themselves up for one last, terrible assault With hatred' to God for their cause and blasphemy for the battle-cry, they spread out over the earth in square beyond square, and legion be n ond legion, while in some overhang)''* cloud of blackness foul spirits of u«;l watch this last struggle of Bin wi ^irknesa fpr dominion. Soattve-J *%» the blasts of Jenovah'a noBtrila, plunder, and sin, and Satanlo force shall quit the field. As the roar of the conflict sounds through the universe all worlds shall listen. The air uball be full of wings of heavenly cohorts,, The work Is done,' and in the presence of a world reclaimed for the crown of Jesus, and amid the crumbling of tyrannies and the defeat of Satanic force, and amid the sound of heavenly acclamations, the church shall rise up in the image of our Lord, and with the crown of victory on her head .and the scepter of dominion in her hand, in- the name of God shall set up her banners.' Then Himalaya shall become Mpunt Zlon, and the^Pyrenees Moriah, and the oceans the walking place of him who trod the wave crests of Galilee, and the great heavens become a sounding-board which shall strike back the sound of exultation to the earth till it rebound again to the throne of the Almighty., Angel of the Apocalypse, fly! fly! for who will stand in the way of thy might or resist the sweep of thy wing? FALLS , It is reported that, beginning aext October, Explorer Mansea will Deliver this country 9 *srle» of fifty tiiw Insect Encntle* of tho Orap«, Onu of the noticeable features of a vineyard, particularly jn mid-summer and later, is the many folded leaves the Interiors of which have been skeleton* Ized. Tails is especially evident with thick-leafed varieties, the whitish under surface contrasting strongly with the dark green of the upper. If the leaf be unfolded it will be found to contain a very active, wriggling, greenish larva, a little leas than one inch long, which is apt to spring out of the fold and fall or hang by a thread. The leaf itself will be found to foe attached to the folded part by means of numerous little cords of silk. If the larva la full grown tlhe Interior of _the leaf will be thoroughly skeletonized, and soiled with accumulated excrements. The fold almost Invariably brings the upper side of the leaf together, the larva feeding,therefore, on what would be th^ upper surface of the leaf. The larva transforms to a reddish-brown chrysalln usually within a much smaller fold ol the edge of tho leaf, but sometimes •within the larger larval fold. The moth, which during mid-summer, issues In a few days, expands about an Inch, and is a -shining opalescent black, with wings bordered with white, and marked with white spots, an in the illustration, a slight variation In maculatlon being noted between the males and females. Tho moth Is seldom' seen, but if the vines be shaken it may be frightened up and observed In quick flight, seeking othei* concealment There are two, or, in the south, three broods each summer, the last brood hibernating in the leaves very much as does the grape- berry moth, the pupal cases of which' are v6ry similar to those of the leaf- folder. ,; It occurs from New, England- southward to Florlda t and westward at leaet to the Rocky __ Mountains, and probably is distributed throughout the vine districts of {he United States. It affects all kinds of grapes, showing, perhaps, a little preference for the thick-leafed varieties. • Remedies. — The appearance of a leaf folded by a larva of this Insect renders Its detection easy, and if tho vines are gone over and the larvae crushed in the folded leavea early in the season when they are few in number, allowing none to escape, later damage may be almoat entirely prevented. If tho vines are sprayed with arsenicals for other leaf- eating insects, the treatment will destroy all larvae folding leaves soon thereafter, but not those already present The ease with which this insect may be destroyed 1 by ihand rnakeo it' hardly advisable to spray for it alone, and after the grapes have become well- formed later in the summer, it la no longer safe to .spray with arsenlcals. o Aside from 'hand-picking at this time, there is nothing to be done except to adopt measures thai will afford protection the following year. These consist in the collection and burning of all fallen foliage as promptly as possible' in autumn to destroy, the hibernating larvae and chrysalides. " " Lettuce Rot* ' . Frbm the Horticulturist, published by the Wisconsin State Horticultural eoclety, we take the following query and answer: "What Is the cause of lettuce rot in the greenhouse? And what is the remedy, and is it. likely to spread from one bed to another? I have discovered today what I suppose is the rot, at any rate a good many of the under leaves of the full-grown lettuce^ were_withered up and I found two plants rotted off at the root I have lettuce in' all stages of growth from plants just set to full grown; will it be necessary for me to pull ,up the whole crop and remove it to stop the rot? The younger planta show no signs of --rot" From your description I think, this is lettuce rot, although it is impossible to state positively without an examination of the diseased plants,- The conditions that cause this disease are too hjgh temperature, imperfect drainage, 3 too much moisture in the house, especially at night,' &nd lack of plant food In the soil, It will not be necessary to. throw out the whole crop, but remove and burn all diseased plants, also all leaves and rubbish of any kind.- Keep the house at 38-40 degrees at night and jgive plenty of air in the day time for a, few days. Lettuce will grow vigorously in a . temperature In which the disease will make little progress. 'Avoid overwatering. Lettuce- is a cool- weather plant and will not stand much forcing. • Too much water In the soli, •with too high temperature, causes a rapid but weak growth that is liable to be attacked by rot or mildew. We should strive to imitate the conditions under which the crop thrives best out of doors; that is, cool nights and days not very. warm. Frederick Cranefleld, Agricultural Experiment Station. , For Currant Worms.— -A horticulturist gives this method for killing the currant worm: Take a pail with three gallons of water,- one-half spoon of hellebore, then take a common market sprinkler. It is better to take the sprinkler, because aa a man goes over the plants he can open the bushes with one hand and carry the sprinkler in the other. We watch for the worm. They make their first appearance near the ground on the underside. Open the bush with one hand and sprinkle where you see any elgna of them, and kill them..
