Luke Ifc all ages ot the world it has been cus- ;omary ro celebrate joyful events by festiv- ty—the signing of treaties, the proclama- Mbn of peace, the Christmas, the marriage. HOwfeVer much on other days of the year our table may have stinted supply, on Thanksgiving day there must be something bounteous. And all the Comfortable tomes of Christendom have at some timo Celebrated joyful events by banquet and festivity. Something has happened in the old homestead greater than anything that has ever happened before. A favorite son, Whom the world supposed would become a vagabond and outlaw forever, has got tired of sight seeing, and has returned to his father's house. Tho world said ho never would come back. The old man always said his son would como. He had been looking for him day after day and -ear after year. He knew he would come iack. Now, having returned to his father s house, the father proclaims celebration. There is a calf in the paddock that has been kept up and fed to utmost capacity, so as to be ready for some occasion of joy that might come along. Ahl there never will be a grander day on the old homestead than this day. Let the butchers do their work, -and the housekeepers bring into the table the smoking meat. The musicians will take their places, and the gay groups will move up and down the floor. All the friends and neighbors are gathered in, and an extra supply is sent out to the table of the servants. The father presides at the table and says grace, and thanks God that his long absent boy is home again. Oh! how they missed him- how glad they are to have him back. One Brother indeed stands pouting at the back door, and says: "This is a great ado about nouhmg;.- this bad boy should have been chastened instead of greeted; veal is too good for himl" But the father says: "Nothing is too good; nothing is good enough." There sits the young man, glad at the hearty reception, bub a shadow of sorrow flitting across his brow ut the remembrance of the trouble he had seen All ready now. Let the covers lift. Music. He was dead and he is alive again! He was lost and he is found! By such bold men uniting their voices as they earns to There everlasting spring abides, And ijever-witnarirfft flowed; Death, like a narrow stream divides, Ihat heavenly land from ours. Oh, it is a great religion to live by, and it is a great religion to die by. There is only one heart throb between you and that religion this mothent. Just look into the face of y6ur pardoning God, and surrender yourself for time and for eternity, and he is yotirs, and heaven is yotlrs, and all Is yours. Some of you, like the young man of the text, have gone f*r astray. I know not the history, but you know it—you know it. When a young man went forth into life, the legend says, his guardian angel went forth with him, and getting him into ,field, the guardian angel swept a circl clear around where tho .voting man stood It was. a circle of virtue and honor and h must not got beyond that circle. Armed foes came down, but Were obliged to hal at that circle—they could not pass. Bu one day a temptress with diamonded hand stretched forth and crossed that circle \vitl the hand, and the tempted soul took it and by that one fell grin was brought be rond the circle and died. Some of yoi have stepped beyond that circle. WottU you not like this day, by tho grace of God, to step back?

First of all, there is the new convert's j°7'. J.' is , no tame thing to become a Ohristian. The most tremendous moment in a man's life is when he surrenders : himself to God. The grandest time on the father's homestead is when tho boy comes back. Among the great thront? who, in the parlors of my church, professed Christ one, night was a young man, who next morning rang my door bell and said: "Sir, y cannot contain myself with the joy I feel; /I came here this morning to express it I have found more joy in five minutes in serving God than in all tho years of my prodigality, and I came to say so." You have seen, perhaps, a man runninc for his physical liberty, and the officers of the law after him; and you saw him escape, or afterward you heard the judge had pardoned him, and how great was the gloo of that rescued man; but it is a very tame thins that, compared with the running for one's everlasting life—the terrors of the law after him, and Christ coming in to pardon and bless and rescue and save. You remember John Bunyan, in his great story, tells how the pilgrim put his fingers in his ears and ran, crying, "Life, life, eternal life!" A poor car driver, after having had to struggle to support his family for years suddenly was informed that n large inheritance was his, and there was joy amounting to bewilderment; but that Is a small thing compared with the ex- .perience of one when he has put in his bauds the title deed to the joys, tho raptures, the splendors of heaven, and he can truly say, "Its mansions are mine.dts songs are mine, its God is mine!" " * Oh, it is. no tame ' thing to 1 become a Christian. It is a merry making. It is tho killing of the fatted calf. It is jubilee. You know tho bible never compares it to a funeral, but always compares it to something bright. It is more apt to bo compared to a banquet than anything olse. It is compared in the bible to the water- bright, flashing water; the morning — roseate, flreworked, mountain transfigured morning. I wish I could today take all the bible expressions about pardon and peace, and life and comfort, and hope and heaven, and twist thorn into one garland, and put it on the brow of the humblest child of God in all this laud, and cry: "Wear it, wear it now, wear it forever, son of God, daughter of the Lord God Almighty." Oh, the joy of the new convert! Oh, the gladness of the Christian, service! You have seen sometimes a man in a religious assembly get up and give his experience, Well, Paul gave his experience. He rose in the presnnce of two churches— the church on earth and the church in heayen—and he said: ''Now, this is my experience: 'Sorrowful, yet always rejoicing; poor, yet making many rich; having nothing, yet possessing all things.' " If ail the people who read this sermon knew the -joys of the Christian religion they would ' ' >'th'e Kiffgaom*of«<: " all pass over into next moment. When Daniel Sandeman was dying of cholera, his attendants said: ''Have you much pain?" ''Oh," he replied, "since I found the Lord I have never had any pain except sin." Then they said tu him:''"Would you like to send a message to your friends?" "Yes, I would: tel} them that only last night the love of Jesus came rushing into my soul l?ke, the surges of the sea, and I had to cry out, 'Stop, Lord; it is enough! Stop, Loro, -^enough!'" Oh, the joys of this Christian, religion! '< - i Just pass over from those tamo joys in which you are indulging—joys of this world-j-into • the raptures or the gospel, The world cannot satisfy you; you have found out—Alexander, longing for other worlds to -conquer, and yot drowned in his Own bottle; Byron yyhipped by disquietudes around the world; .Voltaire, cursing his own soul while all the streets of Paris wore applauding him; Henry JI, consuming wiih hatred against poor Thomas a-Beokot —all .-illustrations of the faot that tins ajn.aivhappy., ',_The .... «• ' , •! ~ —«•».» v, fc OCHVilUlUIl Ihero was in the closing hours of Queen Anne what is called the clock scene Slat down on the pillows in helples sickness, she could not move her head or novo her hand. She was waiting for the hour when the ministers of state should gather m angry contest; and worried a vornbut by the cbmihg houri'and"lft n mentary absence of the nurse, in the power—the strange power which delirhfm ometnnes gives one—she arose and stood n front of the clock, and stood there watcli- ng the clock when the nurse returned Ihe nurse said, "Do you see anything uliar about that clock?" She made no .nswer, but soon died. There is a clock cene an every History. If some of you vould rise from the bed of lethargv and omo out of your delirium of sin, and look n the clock of your destiny this moment. on would sec and hear something you lave not seen or heard before, and every ick of the minute, and every stroke of the our, and every swing of the pendulum, vould say: "Now, now, now, nowl" Oh ome home to your father's house. Come ome, oh, prodigal, from the wilderness. •ome home, come honiel But I notice that when the prodigal ame, there was the father's joy. He did ot greet him \vJ4h any formal "how do TTflll fin V TTn r\ \r\ r»r*f nnrvi n ^,, t- .3- you do?" Ho did not come out and "You are unfit to enter; go out wash in the trough by well, and then you can come we have had enough trouble with Ah, no! When flic proprietor of estate proclaimed festival, it was an say, and the in; you." that outburst of a father's love and a father's joy God is your father. I have not much sympathy with that description of God I sometimes hear, as though he wove a Turkish sultan—hard and unsympathetic, and listening not to the cry of his subjects. A man told me he saw, in one of the eastern lands, a king riding along and two men were in altercation, and one charged the other with having eaten his rice; and the king said, "Then slay the man, and by post mortem examination find whether ho has e.iteu tho rice." And ho was slain. Ahl the cruelty of a scene like that. Our God is not a sultan, not a despot, but a father—kind, loving, forgiving, and he makes all heaven ring again when a prodigal comes back. I have no pleasure," he says, in the death of him that dieth." If a man does not get to heaven, it is because he will not go there. No difference the color, no difference the history, no difference the antecedents, no difference the surroundings, no difference the sin. When the white horses of Christ's victory are brought out to celebrate the eternal triumph, you mny ride on them, and as God is greater than all, his joy is greater; and when a soul comes back, there is in his heart tho surging of an infinite ocean of gladness; and to express that gladness, it takes all the rivers of pleasure, and all the thrones of pomp, and all the ages of eternity. Iti is a joy deeper than all depth, and higher than all height, and wider than all width, and vaster than all immensity. It overtops, it undergirds, it outweighs all the united splendor and joy of the uni- verso. Who can tell what God's joy is? You remember reading the story of a king, who on some great day of festivity scattered silver and gold among the people', who sent valuable presents to his courtiers; but methinks when a soul comes back, God is so glad that to express his nqy ho flings out new worlds into space, Kindles up new suns, and rolls among the white robed anthems of the redeemed a greater hallelujah, while with a voice that reverberates among the mountains of frankincense and is echoed back from the everlasting gates, he cries: "This, my son, was dead, and is alive again!" At the opening of the exposition in New Orleans I saw a Mexican flutist and he played the solo and then afterward the eight or ten bands of music, accompanied by the great organ, came in; but tho sound of that one flute as compared with all the orchestra was greater than all the combined joy of the universe when compared with tha resounding heart of Almighty For ten years a father went three times a day to the depot. His son went off in aggravating circumstances, but tho father said, '-Ho will come back." The strain was too much and his mind parted, and three times a day the father went. In the early morning he watched the train—its arrival, the stopping out of the passengers and then the departiire of the train. At noon ho was there again, watching the advance of the train, watching the departure. At night, there again, watching the coming, watching the going, for ten years. Ho was sure his son would comeback.

And these men of God I find in different parts of tho land, struggling against annoyances and exasperations innumerable.; some of them Week after week entertaining agents who have maps to soil, and submitting themselves to all styles of annoyance, and yet without complaint, and cheerful of soul. How do you" account for the fact that these life insurance men toll us that ministers as a class live longer than any others? It is because of the joy of their Work, the joy of the harvest field, the joy of greeting prodigals' homo to their Father's house.

A business firm once employed a trained youug man whoso' enjergy-«nj- grasp of affairs soonJLecL—the" management to promote^Eim over a faithful and trusted employe,'says Floyd Davis' in the Popular Science Monthly. The old clerk felt deeply hurt that the young 1 man should be promoted over him and took occasion to complain of it to the manager. Feeling that this was a case that could not be argued the manager asked the old clerk what was making all the noise in front of the building. He went forward and returned with the, answer that'it was a lot of wagons gfe- x ing by. - "He then asked the clerk what they were loaded with, and again he went out and returned, reporting 'that 1 they were loaded with wheat. The manager again sent him to, ascertain how-many there were, and he' returned with the answer that there were sixteen. Filially he was sent to see where the'y were from, and he returned, saying that they were from the city of Lucena. The manager then asked the old clerk to be seated, and sent for the young man and said to him, "Will you see what is the meaning, of that rumbling- noise in front?" Tlie young man replied: "It is unnecessary, for I have already ascertained that it is caused by sixteen wagons loaded with wheat. Twenty more will pass tomorrow. They belong to Romero & Co. of Lucena and are on their way to Marchesa,' where wheat is ' bringing $1.25 per bushel,while it costs only $1 at Lucena. The wagons carry 100 bushels each and get 15 cents per bushel for, hauling." The young man was then 'dismissed, and the manager turning to the old clerk said: "My friend, you see now why the young man -was promoted over you.'" -3!his4Uustratesthe*tendency'. l ol pur times, for we are rapidly advancing into an age when concentration of energy and grasp of a subject in detail in the shortest possible timo are requisite for' advancement, How The*y Tell Time in Nopaul, They are no public schools in Nepaul.

These over, the two met in the short interim between the last recitation and the hour for the daily chapel exercises in the young man's room. Mutual inquiries of family and school matters engrossed their attention until the chapel bell rang.

"I don't know about that," replied Primus pere.slightly piqued at his son's implication that he was no longer so young and vigorous as he once was in spite of the filial language in which it was couched. "I'm not tired, and besides I'd like to see all there is to be seen while I'm here." • ', Primus flls was in a cold sweat. He dared not permit his father to be present when his own shortcoming! would be made public. But how to prevent it? He played his trump card.

The young rice plants, grown thiolj, ogether in nursery patches, are pulled up when the fields are ready for plant- ng, their roots are washed and they ire tied in bundles, which are thrown into the mud and water; then the men and women wade-in, untie a bundle, and set the seedlings in lines by 'just iressing them with their fingers into the mud. • They do this wonderfully quickly, andean plant eight or nine in a row without mbving from their places; when the field is all planted it look* ike a pond with a delicate green haze over it. The dividing banks are planted with beans or other vegetables, so ;hat not a yard of ground is wasted.
