v t 'GROUND" tHE SOBJECt ' PF SUNDAY'S DISCOURSE. from the Te*t of Roman* XVtftO—"Lfeftt t Shdnlrt finite! Upon Another Man's foundation — Saving the Seept*08 Is Encouraged. FTER, WITH THE help of others, I dad built three churches in the same city, ahd not feeling called upon to undertake the BUperhiitn&n toll of building a fourth church, Providence Seemed to point to this place as the field in which I could enlarge my work, and I feel a sense of relief amounting to exultation. •\Vhereunto this work will grow I can Jiot'prophesy. It Is inviting and promising beyond anything I tekVe ever ..touched. Ther'ehu'fc'ne's are-'trie grand- cm'" institutions this world ever saw, and their pastors have no superiors this side of heaven; but there is a work which must be clone outside the churches, and to that work- 1 join myself for a while, "Lest I build on another man's foundation." ./.The church is a fortrSssC divinely built. Now, n fortress is for defense and for drill and for storing, ammunition, but an army must sometimes be on the inarch far outside the fortress. In the campaign of conquering this world for Christ the time has come for ai» advance movement,, for a '."general engagement,'' for massing the Droops, for an invasion^of the- enemy's country. Confident that the forts jare well manned by the ablest ministry that' ever blessed the church, I propose, with others, for a while to join the cavalry and move out and on for service in the open field. In laying out the plan for his mi?islpn- ary tour, Paul, with more brainlthan any of his contemporaries or predecessors or successors, sought out' towns and cities which had not yet been preached to. He goes to Corinth, a city mentioned for splendor and vice, and Jerusalem, where tlie priesthood and Sanhedrim were ready to leap with both feet upon the Christian religion. He feels he has a special work to do> and ho means to do it. What was the result? The grandest llfe'.o'f iisefulness' that man ever lived. We modem-Christian workers are not apt to imitate Paul- We build on other people's fouriuatibns.. If wo erect a church we pr.efer .tp.;-haye it filled with families all. of wh'onVhave been pious. Do we gather a Sunday school class, we want good boys, and girls, hair combed, faces.-washed,,manners attractive. So a churcK,'in. : . this> day is apt to be buiU• out. .of'-.'b.'ther• churches. Some ministers .spe^ia all their time in fishing in other.-people's ponds, and they thrp.'.v the line iiico that- church pond and jerk out a Methodist, and throw the line into another church' pond and bring out a Presbyterian, or there is a religious row in some neighboring church and thp of fish swim off from that pond and we take them all in with one swoop of the net. What is gained? Absolutely, ninth- ing for the general cause of Chrir.t: It is only as in an army, when a regiment is transferred from one division to an-other, or from the 14th regiment to the- C9th regiment. What strengthens - the army is new recruits. The fact is, this is a biff world. When, in our school boy days, we learned the diameter and circumference of this planet, we did not learn half. It is the latitude and longitude and diameter and circumference ot want and woe and,'sin, that no figures can calculate. This one spiritual continent of wretchedness reaches across all zones, and if I-were called to give it's geographical.boundary I would sa-y it is bounded on the north and south ..and east and west by the great heart'of God's sympathy and love. Oh, it is a great world. Since six o'clock this morning at least 80,000 have been born and all these multiplied populations are to be reached of the gospel. In England or in eastern American cities we are being much crowded and an acre of ground is of much value; but out west GOO acres is a small farm and 20,000 acres is no unusual possession. There is a vast field here and everywhere unoccupied, plenty of room more, not building on another man's foundation. We need as churches to stop bombarding the old iron-clad sinners that have been proof against thirty years of Christian assault, and aim for the salvation of those who have nev^r yet had one warm hearted and point blank invitation. There are churches whose buildings might be wortfr $200^000, -who ure not averaging five new converts a year and doing less good than many a log-cabin meeting house with tallow candle stuck in wooden socket, and a minister who has never seen a college or known the difference between Qreek and Choctaw. We need churches to get into sympathy with the great out- Bide world and let them know that none are so broken-hearted or hardly bestead that they will not be welcomed. ' "No!" says some fastidious Christian, "I don't like to be crowded in a church. Pqn't put any one in my pew." My brother, what will you do in heaven? When, a great multitude that no man can ber assembles they will put fifty in yotlr pew. What are the select few to-day assembled in the Christian churches compared with the rnjghtier piillions outside of them? AJ least 3,000,000 pjso- ple in this cluster of seaboard cities, not more than 200,000 in the churches. Many of the churches are like a hospital that should advertise that its patients must have nothing worse than toothache or "ruh-ai ; ounds," but no broken heads, no crushed ankles, no fractured thighs. Give us for treatment moderate sinners, velvet-coated signers and sinners with a gloss on. It is as though, a man had a farm of 3,000 acres and'pul all his work on one acre. He may raise never so large ears of copn, pever so t>ig heads of wheat, he; would remain poor. The church of God has bestowed its chief care on one acre and' hag raised splendi4 men and women in thai small enclosure, but th$ geld isj the world. That means Norton and - South America, Europe, Asia and Africa, and all the islands of th,e -^ea. It is as though after a great battle there were left 60,000 wounded and dying on the flejd, anft- t^r^' Surgeons gave all, their time to tjjvea " ' Minder their charge. The xna^o comes Jn a.nd. says to the docterg: "Cojne here and losls at tfye Really 50,000 fQF Jacfc o? s^rg{ofl '"Ho," 'say the cloctofs, 'standing there ! and fanning their patients,' "we have' three important cases here and we are attending to them, and when we are not positively busy with their wounds, it takes all our time to keep the 'fties oft," In this awful battle of sin kh'd sorrow, where millions have fallen on millions, do hot let us spend all our time in aking care of a few people, and when fie commaiid comes: "Gki' into the world," say practically: "No, I can not ;o; I have here a few choice cases and : am busy keeping off the flies.' 1 There are multitudes to-day Who have never lad any Christian worker look them in the eye and with earnestness in the accentuation say: "Come!" or they would ong ago have been in the kingdom. My friends, religion is either a sham or a tremendous reality. If it be a sham, ,et us cease to have anything to dp with Christian association. If it be a reality, then great populations are oh their way to the bar of God unfitted for the ordeal, and what are we doing? In order to reach the multitude of outsiders we must drop all technicalities out of our religion. When we talk .to people about the hypostatic union and French encyclopedlanism and EfrAstin- anism and Complutensiahism, we are as impolitic and little understood as if a physician should talk to an ordinary atient about the pericardium and in- :ercostal muscle and scorbutic symp- :oms. Many of us come out of the theological seminaries so loaded up that ive take the first ten years to-show our people how much we know and the next ten years to get our people to know'as riuch as we'know, and at last find that neither of us knows anything as we ought to know. Here are hundreds of thousands of sinning, struggling and dying people who nesd to realize just one thing—that Jesus Christ came to save them, and will save them now. But .ve go into u, profound' -and elaborate definition of what justification is, and after all the work there are not, outside of the Iparnod professions, 5,000 people n the United States who can tell what justification is. I will read you the defi-! lition: • ' .'.-. • ^ '-•' "Justification is purely a forensic act, the act of a judge sitting in the forum, n which the Supreme Ruler and Judge, \vlio is accountable to. none and who alone knows the^manner in -'which the ends of his universal government can best be obtained, reckons that which as done by the substitute,--and-not oh account of anything done by them, but purely upon account of -this gracious nethod of reckoning, grants them the full remission of their sins." Comparatively little effort has as yet been made to save that large class of •>ersons in our midst called sceptics, and he who goes to work here will not' be building upon another man's founda- :ion. There is a great multitude of them. They are afraid of tis and our churches, for the reason we do not [mow,, how to treat them. One of this class-'met Christ, and hear with what tenderness and pathos and beauty and success Christ dealt with him: "Thou slialt love the Lord thy God with'all thy heart and with all toy soul and with all thy mind and with all thy strength. Tills is the first commandment, and the second is like to this, namely: Thou shalt. love thy neighbor as thyself. There Is no other commandment greater than this." And the scribe said to him:; "We.ll, Master, thou hast said the truth, for there is one God; and to love him with a.11 the heart and all the understanding and all the soul and. all the strength is^more than whole burnt,offerings and' sacrifices." -And'-'when Jesus saw that he answered discreetly, he said unto him: "Thou art not far from the kingdom of God." So a sceptic was, saved in one interview. But few Chris- : tion people treat sceptics in that way. Instead of taking hold of them with the gentle, hand of. love^'we are apt to take them with-the'iron pincers of ec- clesiastielsm. Again, there is a field of usefulness but little touched or occupied by those who arp astray in their, habits. All northern nations, like those 'of North America a'nd England and Scotland, that is, in the col-ler climates, are devastated by alcoholism. They take the flre to keep up the warmth. In southern countries, like Arabia and Spain, the blood' is so warm they are. not tempted to fiery liquids. The great-Roman armies -never drank anything stronger than water tinged with vinegar, but under our northern cliniate the .temptation to heating ''stimulants.. Is most mighty and millions succumb'. When a man's habits go wro'rig the church drop$ hirn, the social circle drops him, good influence drops him, we all drop him. Of all the men who get off the track, but few., ever get on again. Near my summer residence there is a life saving station on the beach. There are all the rapes and rockets, the boats, the machinery .for -getting people off ship^ wrecks. One summer I saw there fifteen or twenty men who were breakfasting after having just, escaped with their lives and nothing more. Up and down our coasts are built these useful struc* ures, and the mariners know it; and they feel that if they are driven into the 'breakers, -there will be apt from shore to.come a rescue, The churches of God ought to be so- many Hfesaving stations, not so help those who ave in smooth waters, but, those whP Have, been shipwrecked. Come, let us rim out the life' boats! And whp will .man themV We do not preach enough to suei} men; we have not enough faith in their release. Alas, if when they come to hear us, we are boriously trying ; to:shpw the difference betwe.en subJapsarianism. and lapsarianism, while they; have a thousand vjpers of reinorse and/'d'ei=h)alr coiling around anjj l)}Ung their im,moi'- tal spirits. 'T,h£ chu,rqh lj noij chief,)}' for gopdish ,sort of men wnose procjivi- ties are all right, and who could get to heaven praying and singing in theii own homes. It is on the beach to help 1,he drowning. Those bad cases arp the cases that God likes to taHe hold of. He can save a big steamer as well as a small sinner, and when a man calls earnestly tp Gpcl for help he will go out to deliver such a one. If it were necessary, Goc would come down from the sky, fol- Jowed by all the artillery of heaven anc a million 'angejs with, drawn swords i(3'et - one hundred^ such redeemed m.en in each of your churches, and nothing could stand before them, for such men 'are 'generally warm hearted and enthusiastic. No formal payers then. No heartless singing then, NP cold conven- tiqnalisms then. Furthermore, the destitute children of the streets pffer a field of work cpm- paratively unpccupled. _.Tne uncared foi children are .in the maj'orlty in most o our cities. Their condition was wel illustrated by what a bpy in this city sajd when h,e was fpunq under a carl gnawing a tone, and. some one said to. him, "Wheye do ypu live?" and he an* swered, "Don't ijve nowhere, sir!"

ABOUT BLUE ROSES, Sirlus and Arctuttis are Said . to. Have Changed Color. A .well-known naturalist recently \Vrote': "We may have a yellow rose, but it is pretty, well agreed that if we ever see a blue one it will be by a process of continuous variation and selec- ion." By this process it is meant that £.-a blue''rose is ever produced, from a •ed variety, for' instance, the., change will not be a sudden one,"a leap from one color to the other,' but the result of a gradual progression'thrtiugh a'series of' st'eiis leading regularly frorri red to 5lue, says the Youth's Companion'. In fact, it has been,found:that both plants and animals exhibit a -tendency :ovvard a definite succession .pf colors, and certain colors haVe been regarded as representing higher stages'of .evolution than others. The change^ toward .hese "higher." colors-are usually con- .inuous and require ,a series of varia- ;ions, while, on the: other hand, in* stances -Of sudden reversion to "lower" colors, are not uncommon. ..... Red is regarded as a higher color, In this sense, than yellow'. Tho yellow H'imrPse sometimes varies to red', but .he change is nevet"' sudden or' discon- ;inuous, because;it4s. a-'change in the direction of progression. .But from red ;o yellow the. change sometimes occurs y a jump, so to speak, because it is oing backward. The same .thing seems to apply in the case of birds. Red and green species of birds may 'ary to yellow, but the utmost efforts of breeders to produce i'ed canaries' from yellow ones have,"only -resulted in an orange hue. , ' ........,.. ., .-Gave the Wrong Prizes. One day last week Patrick O'Fin- nerty, an itinerant cigar-vender, was arrested and brought before Commissioner Shields for selling.his wares from a box that did not bear a revenue stahp. When the revenue officer had finished' his testimony O'Finnerty cross-examined hi-m. , "Can you- swear that those were cigars that I was selling*" he asked. : "Certainly/' was the; reply. - ' . "What is. a .cigar?" asked O'Finnerty. "Why, tobacco, of course, done into a -oil for smoking purposes." • "Well,'ve made out a mighty weak case against me," exclaimed O'Fin- nerty, "for the rolls that I was selling were made of cabbage leaves." One of the alleged cigars was thereupon cut open and an expert who was called In to examine it declared that, while he was not sure'that it was made of cabage, ho felt justified in swearing :hat it was not tobacco. O'Finnerty had given away,a small picture with each -cigar. In discharging him from ustody, Commissioner Shields said: "You are- a bright, young fellow O'Finnerty, but I think you are not consistent in) throwing in a picture with each cigar, .Corned beef more appropriate."—Tobacco. • i . .

Small tests of faith, sectarian standards of orthodoxy, pedantries, .whims. and theological crazes will all disappear, and men will gather in adoring love around the Christ of God. There will be a grand church in the twentieth century. In that holy day opinion •will be nothing accounted of 'compared with sincere love and passionate devotion' to .the- service of the poor, the weak and the weary 'tfhb need a word in season. In that .day men will not know that there, was's'o great an anomaly .as a state church^' The buttress of the state will have. been displaced by the unseen, arm of tlie living God, and outward glitter will disappear under the dawning and brightening radiance of .spiritual beauty and , loveliness. The church 'of the triumphant Savior will -in very deed b"e established, for she shall have granite for her foundation and salvation - for her walls. • ' V . In Great Britain Dr. Parker prophesies great political changes at the close of the twentieth century. The ecclesiastical commissioners will all be paid off, and their" 'ihiiliohs' will' ihave gone to the reduction of the Mia-' 'tional debt. 'Leaseholds will, have become'freeholds.''
