The Sphinx also was to me a stern moiistrnsity, u statuo carved out of a roek of red granite sixty -two feet high and alioul one hundred mid forty-three, feet long mid having the head of a. man and Hie body of a lion. We sal down In the sand of tho African desert lo study it. With a cold •mile it lias looked down upon thousands of years of earthly history; Egyptian eivili/.ntion; upon tho rise and fall of thrones innumerable; the victory mid defeat of the armies of centuries. It took three thous'.ind yoars to make one wrinkle on its red choelc. It is dreadful in its stolidity. Its eyes have never wept it tear. Its cold ears have not listened to the groans of the Egyptian nation, the harden of which I tried lo weigh last Sabbath. Its hoart is stone. It enrud not for Pliny when he measured it in the first con- tury. It will care nothing for tho man who looks into its imperturbable countenance in the last century. Good-by, Egypt. This sermon finds UB on the steamer Minerva, in tho QrO' clan archipelago, the islands of tho New Testament, nnd islands l'aulinian and Johanniau in their reminiscence. What Bradshaw's directory is to the travelers In Europe.nnd what the rail road guide is to travelers in America, the hook of tho Acts in the llihle is to voyagers in the Grecian, or, us 1 Mia 11 call it, the Gospel archipelago. The Itible geography of that region is accurate without a shadow of mistake. We are sailing this morning on the same waters that Paul sailed, but in tho opposite direction to that which I'aiil voyaged. He was sailing southward and we northward. With him it was: lOphesus, Coos, Rhodes Cyprus. With us it is reversed, and It is: Cyprus, KhcdoB, Coos, Ephesus. 'I here is no hook in the world so uccunttc as the Divine Book. My text says thai Paul left Cyprus on tho left; we, going in the opposite direct tiou, have it on the right. On our ship Minerva were only two or three passengers beside our own party, so we had pleniy of room to walk the deck . and ob, what a night was Christinas night of. 1889 in Unit Grecian archipelago —Islands of light, above, islands of beauty hcneutlil It is it royal family of islands, thU Greolan archipelago; the crown of tlio world's scenery sot with sapphire and eiuuruld und topaa •n,d chrysoprusus a'nd ablaze with . glory tbat seems lot dawn out of celestial landscapes. God evidently made up .IJishiind that just hero Ue would ' demonstrate the utmost that can be done with islands for. the beautifjeation of earthly scenery, The steamer had stopped during the night, nnd In the morning the ship was H quiet as this door, when we hastened pp to the deck and found that we had anchored off the Island of Cyprus. In • boat," which the natives rowed standing up, as is the custom, instead of sitting down us when we row, we were soon landed on the streets where Paul and liitrnabus walked and preached. Yen, when at Autlouh Paul and Barnabas got into u tight —as ministers sometimes did and sometimes do, for they . all have imperfections enough to anchor them to this world till their work U done, 1 say— when because of this . bitter controversy Paul and Barnabas parted, Barnabas came back here to Cyprus, which was his birthplace. Ilr • land ^wondorful for history! It has been the prize sometimes won by Persia, by Greece, by Egypt, by the Saracens, by the Crusaders, and last of all, not by •word but by pen, and that the pen of the keenest dlplotnalst of the century, Lord Beucousfield, who under a lease Whieh wits us good as a purchase, let CypruRtimong the jewels of Victoria's erown. \Vo wout out into the excavations from which Dl Cesnola has enriched our American museums with antiquities, und with no better weapon than our foot wo stirred up the ground 4eep enough to get a tear-botUe In Which some, mourner shed his tears thousands of years ago, and a lamp Which before, Christ was born 1 lighted the feet of some poor pilgrim opi bis way. That island, of Cyprus ha* •sough to set an antiquarian wild. Tho most of its glory U) tfie glory of the past, and the typhoid fevers that swept its coast and the clouds of locusts that often blacked Its skies (though two hundred thousand ' dollars were expended by the British empire in one year for the extirpation •f these noxious insects, yet falling to do the work) und the frequent change of governmental musters, hinder* pro** parity. But when the islands of tb* *«a' coma to God Cyprus will come with them, und the agricultural, and cow* mcreial opulence which adorned U l» ages .paBt will be eclipsed by the agricultural und commercial and religion* triumphs of tho ages to come. ..

"Captain," 1 said, when will you arrive at the island of Rhodes?" Looking out from under his glazed cap, ho responded in n sepulchral voice: "About midnight." Though It would ho keeping unreasonable hours, I concluded to stay on deck, for 1 must see Rhodes, one of the islands associated with the nnmo of tho greatest missionary the world oversaw or ever will see. Paul landed there, and that was enough to make it famous while the world stands and famous in Heaven when tho world has become it charred wreck. But there is one island that I longed to see more than any other. I can afford to miss the princes among tho islands, but I must see the king of the archipelago. The one I longed to see Is not so ninny miles in circumference SB Cyprus, or Crete, or I'inos, or Naxon, or Brio, or Mltvlen. but I had rather, in this sail through the Grecian archl- pelngo, see that than all the others; for more of the glories of Heaven landed there than on ull the islands and continents sinco the world stood. As wo come toward It I feel my pulses quicken. "I, .lolin, was in tlio island that is called l'ntmos." It is a pile of rocks Iweiily-eight miles in circumference. A few cypVcsspi nnd interior olives pump it living out of the enrtls. nnd one palm tree spreads Its folingo. But the barrenness und gloom nnd lonolincss of tho island innde it n prison for the banished evangelist. Doinillan could not stand his ministry, nnd one day, under armed guard, that minister of the Gospel stepped from a tossing boat to these dismal rocks, und walked up to tho dismal cavern which was to bo his home, and the place where should pass before him nil the conllictsof coming time and nil the raptures of a coming eternity. Is it not reniurkitble that nearly all the great revelntionsof rauBlo and poetry und religion have beenmnde to men in banishment— Homer and Milton banished into blindness; Beethoven banished into deafness; Dante writing his "Divina Commcdin" during the nineteen yeai-H of banishment from his native land; Victor Hugo writing his "I,es Miserables" exiled from home and country on the island of Guernsey, and the brightest visions of tho future have been given to those who by sickness or sorrow were exiled from tho outer world into rooms of suffering. Only those who have been imprisoned by very hard surroundings have hud great revelations made lo them. So Patnios, wild, chill and bleak and terrible, was the best island ill all the archipelago, the best pluco in all the earth for Divine revelations. Before a panorama can be successfully seen the room in which you sit must bo darkened, and in the presence of John was to puss such it panorama as no man ever before saw or over will see in this world, and hence the gloom of his surroundings was a holp rather than a hinderance. All tho surroundings of the place effocted St. John 's imagery when he speaks of Heaven. St. John, hungry from enforced abstinence, or having no food excopt that at which bis appetite revolted, thinks of Heaven: nnd as the famished man is to dream of bountiful tables covered witli luxuries, so St John says of the inhabitants of Heaven: "They shell hunger no more." Scarcity of water on l'ntmos and the hot tongue of St. John's thirst lends him to admire Heavon us he says: "They shall thirst no more." St. John hears tho waves of the sea wildly dashing against the rocks, and each wave has a voice and all the waves together make a chorus, und they remind him of the multitudinous anthems of Heaven', nnd ho says: "They are like the voice of many waters." One day, us lie looked oil upon the sea, the witters were very smooth, as it is to -day ''While we sail thorn in the Minorvit, nnd they were like glass and the sunlight seemed to set them on fire, and there wits a ininglingof white light and intense Hume, and us St. John looked out from his cavern home upon that brilliant sou, he thought of the splendors of Heaven, aud describes them "As a sou of glass mingled with fire." Yes, seated In the dark cavern of Patmos, though homesick and hungry and loaded witli Domltlun's anathemas, St John was the most fortunate man on earth because of the panorama that passed before the mouth of that cavern. Turn down ull the lights that we may better see it. The panorama passes, and lot the conquering.Christ, robed, girdled, armed, the flash of golden can' dlestlcks and seven stars in His right hand, candlesticks and stars meaning light held up, and light scattered. And there pusses a throne und Chist on it, and the seals broken, and the woe* sounded, and a dagon slain, and seven last plagues swoop, and seven vials are poured out, and the vision vanishes. And we halt a moment to rest for the exciting spectacle. Again the panorama moves on before the cavern of Patmos, and John the exile sees a great city representing all abomination*, Babylon, towered, polaced, templed,' fountained, fbilaged, sculptured, hang log. gardens, suddenly going crash! crash! the pipers cease to pipe,and the trumpets cease to trumpet, and the dust and the Binoke and the horror fill tb* canvas, while from above and beneath •re voices announcing "Babylon I* fallen, Is fallen!" And we halt again, to rest from the. spectacle. •Again th* panorama passes before the cavern of Patmos, and John the exile sets % mounted Christ on a snow-whit* charger leading forth the cavalry of Heaven, the long line of white charger*' galloping through the soene, the clattering of hoofs,'the clinking of brldl* bits and the Hush of spear, all th* •arth conquered unu ull Heave? in Doxology. And we halt again to rest from the speutuolo, Again th* panorama pusses before the cavern of Putmos, und John the exile sees great thrones lifted, thrones of martyr*, thrones of apostles, thrones of prophets, thrones of patriarchs and a thvone higher than all on which Jesus sit*, and ponderous books are opened, their leaves turned over, revealing the name* of all that have ever lived, the good nnd the bad, the renowned and the humble, the mighty rind the weak, and at the turn of every leaf the universe is in rapture or fright, and' the sea empties its sarcophagus of all the dead of the sunken shipping, and the earth (rive* way, and the heaven* vanish. Again wo reat a moment from the spectacle. The panorama moves on before, tha cavern of Patmos, and John, tb* exile, beholdsaoity p f gold, and* river tnpre beauttfnl i than the Rhine, M^the s Hudson .rolla. through it. and *ll#J JgM tftajlr^rdens on •ttM| bank,Taitd all 1* lurrgvwdcd by I»U* to which the upholstery ot aiituinual forests, und (he sun rises anil sun sets of all the ages, ami the glory of burning worlds scent to be commingled. And the inha hitnata never breathe it sign, or utter tt gronn, or discuss a dlll'erence, or frown a dislike, or weep a tear. Tho fashion they ivenr is pure white, and their foreheads are encircled by gur- lnnds. nnd Ihey who were sick lire well, and they who were old nrc young, nnd they who were bereft are reunited. And as the last, iignre of that panorama rolled out of sight, I think that John must have fallen back Into his cavern, nerveless and exhausted. Too much wus it for naked eye to look lit Too much wus it for human st length to experience. My friends. I would not wondor if you should have n very similar vision after awhile. Yon will be through this world, its cares, and fatigues, and struggles, and if you have served the Lord ami have done the best you could I should not wonder if your dying-bed wore a l'nlinos. It often has been so, I was reading of n dying boy who, while the fnmily stood round sorrowfully expecting each breath would be the last, cried: "Open the gates! Open the gn'..<s! Happy! Happy I Happy!" John Owen in his Inst hour Bald to his nltetidnnt: "Oh, Brother Payne! the long-wisiied-for dny is come at Inst!" Rutherford, in the closing moment of his life cried out: "I shall shine, I shall see Him as lie is, and all the fair company with Him, and shall have my large share, I have gotten tho victory. Christ is holding forth His arms to embrace me. Now I feell Now I enjoy! Now I rejoice! I feed on manna. I have angels' food. My oyes wili see my Redeemer. Glory, glory dwellcth in Immnnuel's land." Yes, tin thousand times in the history of the world lias tho dying bed been made a Patmos. You sec, the time will come whon you will, O child of God, he exiled to your last sickness as much as John was exiled to l'ntmos. You will go into your room not to come out again, for God is going to do something hotter and grander and happier for yon than Ho has ever yet done! There will be such visions lot down to your pillow us God gives no man if He is ever to return to this tame world. Tho apparent feeling of uno &s- inoss and restlessness at the tirao of tho Christian departure, tho physl clanB say, is caused by no real distress. It is an unconscious and involuntary movement and, I think, in many cases It is the vision of Heavenly gladness too great for mortal endurance. It is only Heaven break' ing in on the departing spirit. You see your work will be dune nnd the time for your departure will be at hand, and there will be wings over you and wings under you, und songs let loose on the air, nnd your old father and mother gone for years will descend into the room, andyourllttlechildrenwhorayou put uwny tor the lust sleep years ago will be at your side, nnd their kiss will bo on your foreheads, nnd you will see gardens in full bloom, and tho swinging open of shining gates, and will hear voices long ago hushed. In many a Christian departure that you have known and 1 have known there was In the phraseology of the departing ones something that indicated tho reappearance of those long deceased. It IB no delirium, no delusion, but it supernal fact. Your glorified loved ones will hear that you are about to come and they will say in- Heaven: "May I go down to show that soul tho way up? May I be the celestial escort? May I wait for that soul at tho edge of tho pillow?" And the Lord will say: Yes. You may Hy down on that mis •ion." And I think all your glorified kindred will como down, and thoy will be in the room, aud although those in health standing around you may hoar no voice, and see no arrival from the heavenly world, you will see and hoar. And the moment the fleshy bond of the soul shall break the cry will be: "Follow me! Upthiswiiyl By this gilded cloud, upiist these stars, straight for home, and straight for glory, straight for God!" As on that day in the Grecian archipelago Patmos began to fade out of sight, I walked to the stern of the ship that I might keep my eye on the enchantment as long us 1 could, and the voice that sounded out of Heaven to John, the exile, in the cuvern on Patmos seemed Bounding In the waters that dashed against the sido of the ship: "Behold, the tabernacle of Hod is with men, and He will dwull with them, and they •hall be His people, and G .od Himself shall be with them and be thoir God, and God shall wipe awoy all tears from their eyes, and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain, for the former things ore passed away."

Yea, I suppoie so, Can you send me A unique collection of sketches, models and specimens of wheeled vehicles as used in different countries in ancient and modern times, will constitute one of the most interesting features of the display to ho made hy the department of transportation at the exposition. They will form a striking if not ludicrous contrast .villi the models and specimens displayed by the leading carriage builders of to-day. Vehicular development broadens us it is approached, for it comprehends a vompnr- itively authentic and completo rirord of 'iiiinan pro.re-s. lionier gives Anthens— tin 1 goddess of wisdom—th" credit of ii.- venllng vehicles. "She," he suts, "first 'aught earth inhabiting artifices' to Frame wagons and curiously wrought chariolsof war in brass." Ovid, however, who is an minority equal to Homer—;irobably neither of them had as comprehensive an idea of vehicles its Chief Smith—ascribes the discovery of vehicles to Vulcan. Meanwhile, Egypt claimed tho honor for one of her tutelary deities. It is the intention of the department to follow the vehicular science Irom the earliest date known to history, down through tho centuries to the present day of 'the taudeni and the tiger." Every vehiclo of which history or legend makes mention will be given a place in the display. A singular mode of conveying baggaje or war impediments— the precursor of the knappaek—is suggested by a sketch of a soldier, front und rear view, copied from bus relief on bronz;s tound in Sardinia. In his left hand ho holds a bunch of arrows extending above and below it a shield. His right hand gra«ps a bow, or what is intended for one, His breast and limbs are protected by armor, while through the prongs of a basket tilted above his close- fitting headgear and held in place by two horns, a shaft lustened to his back extends upwards, surniounud by a pair of wheels. The obvious intent ot this primitive vehicle IB to enable the soldier to draw his wenpoiiB and provisions while on the march. In the days when lhe greatness of the cily of Thebes was acknowledged by the entire known world a v- hide was in use that win not altogether unlike lhe two- wheeled dog cart ot lo-ilay. Then it was lis uncommon sight for nn E'hiopeaii princess, elegantly attired and panoplied, to be seen with attendant und charioteer driving along the boulevards of that city in a magnificent chariot em- bli'zoned with [precious metals and sparkling gems drawn by iv pair of charging oxen. When lloniinus and his unfortunate brother were staking out corpor lots on the seven hills of ancient Home and selling them to their followers at boom prices the honest It iman farmer who knew naught of the ways of the.wildy real estoto dealer, drove along the banks of the Tiber in his planstruui. The vehicle Usually had two wheels, but sometimes four, when it was called "planslrum mnjus." Tbe invention of the hitter wns attributed to the Phrygians. The "enrpuntum" like tho "plauBtruui" wns commonly a rectangular two-wlieoled cart, but differed from it in being enclo-cd with an arched or sleeping cover It was also a much more preten­ tion iiffair when mounted on four wheels and drawn by ns many horses. Tho Roman chariot win open overhead, and closed in front, its most csscntiul part being the rim and next lhe axle made of strong wood, l'bo cars of Neptune am Juno bad metulic nxlos. Tlio nxle was firmly fixed under the body of tbe chariot, which wus usually of enclosed wicker work. The v'heols were fastened by pins and revolved on the axles, oiled by anininl fat or olive oil. Persopolitan sculptures and paintings in Egyptian tombs show how commonly chnriotB were employed in wnr by the Persinns, Egyptians, nnd othor Asiatic nations. The good people of Pompeii, who lived before the famous eruption of Vesuvius, had rooky roads to travel, and the discomforts of traveling were not lessened by the stylo ot the vehicle then in fashion. Indeed, it is said that a young lady who resided in the ill-fated city at the time of its destruction, accepted death as a prefernble alternative to a rapid ride in tbe heavy, 8|>ringloB», two-wheeled cunjiot. Not long ago there was discovered in the ruins of Pompeii u chariot containing stone figures, the entire g-oup supposed to represent Love driviug the chariot of Venus. On the side of tbe vehicle is carvod: "Jungit Antor, laotemque vehans pi-r nubila, mntrem Genwuto tcmone sedet." Liberally coiibtraed: "Love hitches up tho car, and seating himsell on its jewelled shaft drives his deliuhte I motlior through the clouds."
