In a recent discourse In tin: Brnnlilyn tabernacle Uev. T. DoWitt 'l'tilun»ir«" loolc "The Nnmo of .lesus" for hii- theme. The text was: Tbe namo which (snhovo ovivy H.imo.— Phil- tj >pans li., 0. Paul is here making rapturous and enthusiastic description of the name of. Christ There nre merely worldly names that sometimes thrill you through and through. Such was the namo of Henry (.'lay to a Kcntiicldan, the name of William Wirt to a Virginian, the name of Hanlel Webster toa New Englumlcr. Uy common proverb wo have come to believe that "there is nuthiug in a name," and so parents snmd'uncs at the baptismal altar (five titles to their children, reclilcss of the fact, thsil that title, that name, will he a life-time hin- deranee or a lifetime help. You have no right to (five yourehild a name lacking either in euphony or moral meaning. It is a sin to call a child .lehoia- kirn, or Tiglathpilesei—or by anything that Is disagreeable, ltccausc you have haul an exasperating name, yourself is no reason why you shmild indict it upon your progeny, dinl yet. how often it is that we sec n name full of jarirun rattling down from (feneration to generation, simply because a lone; while ago some one happened to he afflicted with it. Institutions and (Trent enterprises sometimes without Riiilieient deliberation take nomenclature. Mighty destinies have been decided by a name. While we may, by a lung course of Christian bshavior, get over the misfortune of having been baptized with the name of a despot or a cheat, now much better it would have been if we could havo all started life without any such Incumbrance! When Paul, in my text arid in other passages of Scripture, hurst forth in aspirations of admiration for the name of Christ, I want to inquire what are the characteristics of that appellation, "The name which is above every name." In the first place, speaking to yon in regard to the name of Christ, 1 want to tell you it is an easy name. Yon are sometimes introduced to people with long unpronounceable names, and you have to listen cautiously to get the names, and you have to hear them pronounced two or three times before you risk trying to utter them; but within the first two years the little child folds its hands and lonks upward, and says: "Jesus." Can it b:< that in all this church this morning there are representatives of any household where the children are familiar with the names of the father and mother and brother and sister, yet know nothing about "that name which is above every name?" Sometimes you forget the namo of a quite familiar friend, nud yon have to think and think and think before you get It; but can you imagine any freak of Intellect by which you should forget the name of Jesus? That word seems to fit the tongue in every dialect. Down to old nge, when the rolce is tremulous, and uncertain, and indlsticnt, even then this regal word finds potent utterance When an aged father was dying, one of the children came and said: "Father, do you know mo?" and in the delirium of the last sickness ho said: "No, I don't know you," Another child camo and snld: "Father, do you know mo?" "No," ho said, "I don't know yon. Then the village pastor came in and said: "Do you know mo?" Ho said "No, I don't think I Over saw yon Then, Bald tho minister: "Do you know Jesus?" "Oh, yes!" said tho dy- man, "I know Jesus; chief among ten thousand is He, and the one altogether lovely." Yes, for all ages and for all languages, and for all conditions It is on caBy name. Jeans, I lovo Thy charming namo, Tie music to my onrj Fain would I sound tt out BO load That Heaven and earth might bear, Hut I remark further in regard to this namo of Christ that it is a beautiful name. Now you havo noticed that you can not disassociate a namo from the character of tho person who has it. There are some names, for instance, that are repulsive to my ear. Those nameB aro attractive to your car. What is the difference? Why, I happened to know some persons of that name who were cross, or sour, or queer, or unsympathetic, and the persons you havo happened to know of that name wore kind and genial. Since, then, we can not disassociate a name from tho character of tho parson who has tho name, that consideration makes the name of Jesus unspeakably beautiful. I can not'pronounce that name in your presence, but you think of Hethlehem. and Qethsemane and Golgotha, and you see Ills loving faco and you hear His fender voice and you feol Ills gentle touch. As soon as I pronounce His name in your presence you think of .nim who banqueted" with heavenly hjcrorchs, yet who came down and breakfasted on the fish which the ' • . rough men hauled . out of Oonesurot; yon think of Him who, though the . clouds are the dust of Ills feet walked :'. footsore on the raid to Eramaus. I can not speak Ills name in your hear .1.1 —i— v.;,* „„„ ti ,i „i» „I„I,I 'fake all tne glories ot DooKOinac and put them around the page on whicii that name is printed.

"The name which is above every name." Have you ever heard in a Methodist church, during a time of revival, nscore of souls come to tire altar and cry out for mercy under the power of just two lines of glorias old John Wesley? . . . i> - . , _ti uvr>- nil. l'i> lb,- rep' ntiinr si.nl. to the exhausted invalid I" the Sunday-school girl, to the snow-white octogenarian, ills beautiful. The aged man comes in from a long wall:, and he tremulously opens the door, and he hangs his hat on tho old nail, anil he puts his cane in the usual place, and he lies on his couch, and he says to his children and grandchildren: "My dears, lam going away from yon." And they say: "Why, where are you going grandfather?" "Oh!" he says, "I am going to Jesus;" and so the old man faints awuy into Heaven. And the litttlo child comes in from play and she flings herself iu your lap, and she says, "Mamma, I'm so sick, I'm so very sick;" and you put her to bed, and tile fever is worse and worse, and some midnight, while you arc shaking up the pillow and giving the medicine, she looks up in your face and says: "Mamma, I'm going away from you." You say: "Why, where are you going, spirits in prison, and other (iiottos tc appal the vision with the crucifixion. It will he preserved in the world's literature.

And the red cheek j I! y what " llme havu y° u mnde_up your that vou take to be the mark of the fever turns out to be the carnation bloom of Heaven. Oh? was it not beautiful when a little child heard that her playmate was dying, and she went to the house, and she clambered upon the bed of her dying playmate, and she said to the dying playmate: "Where are you going to?" and the dying gild said:" I'm going to Jesus."

It is a beautiful name, whether on the lips of childhood or on the lips of the old man. When my father was dying the village minister said to him. quoting over his pillow the passage: "This is a faithful saying, anil worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners," and there he stopped. Then my father finished the. quotation by saying, "of wle-m 1 am chief." Hut I remark upain, in regard to this name of Christ, that it is a mighty name. Rothschild is a name mighty in the commercial world. Sillinian is n name mighty in the scientific world, Irving is a name mighty In the literary world, Washington is a namo mighty in the political world, Wellington is n name mighty in the military world; but where In all tho earth is a name so potent to lift, and thrill, and arouse, and rally, and bless, as the name of Jesus! Why, the sound of that one name unhorsed Saul, nnd threw Newton on his face on ship's deck; and that one nauii to-day, while I speak, holds a hundred million souls under omnipotent spoil That name in England to-day means moro than Victoria. In Germany that name to-day means moro than Empcroi William. Oh, mighty name. I have Been a man bound hand nnd foot of tho devil and captive of all evil habits, at the sound of that namo dash down his shackles nnd march out for ever free. I have seen u man overcome of misfortune and trial, every kind ol trouble had he; but at tho sound pi that name tho sea dropped and the clouds parted, and the sunburst of eternal gladness poured upon his soul. 1 hnvo seen a man hardened In infidelity, defiant of Qod, full of jeer and scoff, jacoso of tho judgment day, reckless ol eternity, at the sound of that name blanch, and cower, and groan, and kneel, nnd weep, and repent, and pray, and bollevo, and rejoice, and triumph, Oht it is a mighty name. Under Its power tho last temple of superstition will coma down, and the last Juggernaut of.iniquity will be shattered tc pieces. Tho red horso of carnage, spoken of in apocalyptic vision, - and tlx black horso of death must como back on their haunches; while tho whito horse of viotory goes forth, mounted of him who hath tho moon under His feot, and tho stars of Heaven for HIB tiara. Mighty naraol It will first make the whole earth tremble, and then it will make all tho nations sing. Mighty namel Other dominions Bcem to bo giving way; Franco had to giye up some of hoi fayorito provinces; Spain has lost a great deal of her power", many of the thrones of tho world are being lowered; many of tho scepters of the world are being shortened, but every traet-dls- trlbutor, every Bible printer, every Christian institution' established, spreads abroad tho mighty name ol Christ. It has already been heard under the Chinese wall, and in the Siberian snow castle, and in the Brazilian grove, and In the Eastern pagoda,. That name will swallow up all other names. That croyvn will yet cover up all other crowns. That empire will yet compos* all dominations. ' All Crimea shall cea» and ancient fraud* shall feol, Returning Justice lift aloft bar scale, Peace o'er the'world her olive wand extend, And white-robed Innocence from Heaven de- mind to call Christ when you first meet Ilim in Heaven? Will you call Him "Annointed One," or "Messiah?" or will you take some one of the symbolic terms which you read in your Hible on earth—terms by which Chi ist was designated. Somo day perhaps you will bo wandering among the gardens of Ood on high, the place a-hloom with eternal spring time, infinite luxury of lily and rose and amaranth, nnd perhaps you to the f^ce of Christ and 1 have a right this morning to commend His friendship to all the people. Oh! come Into tho kingdom. Do not say you are too bad. "Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts." "Look unto me, ail ye ends of the earth." How is He going to do—drive you into the kingdom? He will not do it. If you get in at all, it will be because you arc drawn in by His love. What does He say? "Look unto me. all ye ends of the earth." lie was lifted up. What for? To drive? Nol lifted up to draw. Oh! come now, come now into tho kingdom of our Lord Jesus. You have heard of that warrior of ancient times who went into battle against Christ. He hated Christ, and he went into battle lighting Christ; but in the battle he got wounded, lie was struck by the arrow and fell, and ns ho lay with his face up to tile sun, nnd the life-blood oozing away, he put his hand to his heart and toolc a handful of blood from the wound, and held it up towards the sun, and cried out: "O Jesus! thou has conquered." And if to-day, my hearer, struck through by the arrow of Cod's gracious Spirit, you realize the truth of what I have been saying, you would surrender yourself to the Lord who bought yon; vou would say: "I will no longer battle against Christ's mercy. Lord Jesus, thou hast conquered." (ilorious name! I know not what you will do with it; but I will tell you one thing before I stop—I must tell it. 1 will tell you one thing here and now, that I talce liira to bo ray Lord, my Ood, my pardon, my peace, my comfort, my salvation, my Heaven. lllcssed be His glorious name forever.

Some time there will bo n new soul come into Heaven to take its place in the firmament and shine as the stars forever and ever, and the luster of a useful life will shine forth tremulous and beautiful, and you will look up into the face of Christ and say: "My Lord, thou artabrighter star, HieMorningStar, the Star of Jacob, the Star of the Redeemer." Some day yon will be walking among the fountains Hint toss in the sunlight, falling in crash of pearl and amethyst into golden and crystallino urn, and wandering up the round- banked river to the place where the water first tinkles its silver on tho rock, nnd from chalices of love you will bo drinking to honor and everlasting joy, and yon will look up Into tho face of Christ and say: "My Lord, my Lord, Thou art the Fountain of Living Water." Some day you will be wandering among the lambs and sheep of Heaven feeding by the rock, rejoicing in the care of Ilim who brought you out of the wilderness world into the sheepfold, nnd yon will look up into His face, and say: "My Lord, my Lord, Thou art tho Shepherd of the Everlasting Hills." Hut there is another name by which you can call Him. Perhaps that will be M. D.

You got ovor the fence of the graveyard and you pull the weeds back-from the name that has nearly faded frpm the tombstone, and you wish that Walter Bcott't "Old Mortality" would come along and rechlsel it no that you might really find out what the name is, : Why, that was the name of the greatest man in all the town, in all the country, in all the state, now almost faded from the tombstone. And so tho greatest names ot this world either have perished or are perishing. Gregory VI., Sanoho oi Spain, Conrad I. of Germany, Richard I. ol England, Catharine ot Russia, Those pomes were once •mlfthty, an thoy made tho earth tremble, Who care* forthsm mow? x, Nose poor as to do them reverence.

The sun will set afire with its splendor the domes of the temple, and burnish tho golden streets Into u blaze, nnd be reflected back from the solid pearl of the. twelve, gates, and it would bo noon in Heaven. Noon on tho river. Noon on tho hills. Noon In tho valley. High noon. And then you look up, gradually accustoming your vision to tho sight, shading your eyes at tho first lost they be extinguished with tho Insufferable splendor, until after awhile you can look upon tho full irradiation, and you will cry out, "My Lord, my Lord, Thou art tho sun that never sets." But at this point I am staggered with the thought that there may bo persons in this house for whom this name has no charms, though it is so easy, though It is so beautiful, though it is so potent, though it is so enduring. Oh! como to day, and see whether there is anything in Christ. ' I challenge you to test with mo this morning whether Qod is good, ana whether Christ is precious, and whether tho Holy Ghost is omnipotent. Come, my brother, challenge you. Come, and wo will kneel nt the altar of mercy. You kneel on one side of tho altar and I will kneel on the.other sldo of tho altar ol mercy, and we will not get up from our knees until our sins aro pardoned and wo are able to ascribe all honor to the name—you pronouncing it and I pro' nouneing it -^'the name which is above every name."

Sinre 1772 the "Now England Alnnnac arid Farmer's Friend" has been issued un- ruully by the Dubolls. It was one of the first in the fluid, and it is the oldest publi- c,ui)n of its kind in existence today.

He bdieves that the sun and the moon have a gerut deil to do with Ihe weifhcr.
