Plague after plague hud come, and sometimes the Egyptian monarch was disposed to do better, but at the lifting of each plague he was as bud as before. The neero- whicli make me think that one hundred and fifty years ago then: was some terrible crunk In (inrtiniasti-al line. Realize that, and it will be a relief semi-in- llnite. Let ns take ourselves as we are this moment, and then ask "which way?"

It Is u remarkable tiling that sometimes no one can see that linger ' •! A year before Abraham coln signed the I'roclauiation of Emancipation, tile White House wits thronged with committees and iissiciatioiis. ministers ami laymen, advising tlie president to make ttiat proclamation. Hut he waited and waited, amid scoff and anathema, because lie iliil not himself see the linger of God. After awhile, and nt just the right time lie saw the brought.the, neighbor into communion- ' (CONDENSED NEWS, tion with Robertson.

An old Phlludel phia friend visiting me the other day asked me if I had ever noticed this passage of Scripture from which I to-day speak. I told htm no, and 1 said right away: "That is a good text for a sermon." We all recognize the hand of (lod nnd know It is a mighty hand. You have seen a man keep two or thvee ru 1 bcr balls ilyintf In the air. catching nnd j pitching them so that none of them fell I to the lloor, and do this forseveral min- j utes. nnd you have admired his dexterity, lint have you thought how the hand of Ood keeps millions nnd millions of round worlds vastly lnrger than our world flying for centuries without letting one fall? Wondrous power nnd skill of (Jod's hand! Hut about that T am not to discourse. My text leads me to speak of less than a fifth of the Divine hand. "This is the linger of Ood." Only in two other places does the Hible refer to this division of the Omnipotent hand. The rocks on Mount Sinai are basalt and very hard stone. Do you Imagine it was a chisel that cnt the ten commandments in that basalt? No, in Exodus we read that the tables of stones were "written with tho finger of Ood." .Christ says that. Ho cast out tho devils with "tho finger of Ood." The only instance that Christ wrote a word, Ho wrote not with pen on parchment, but with His linger on tho ground. Yet evy of the north. Hut William 11, Seward saw the linger of (lod leading in just the opposite direction, and the confederates were given tip, and we avoided a war with Kn^lnu'l. which at that time would have been the demolition of the United States government. In other words, the linger of Ood. as it directs you, may be invisible to everybody. Kollow the Divine pointing, as you see it, although the world may call you a fool. There has never been a man or a woman who amounted tonny- thing that has not sometimes been called a fool. Nearly all the mistakes that you and I have made have come from our following the pointing of some other linger instead of the finger of God. Hut now, suppose all forms of disease closo in upon u man. Suppose his business collapses. Suppose he buys goods and en not sell them. Suppose, by a new invention, others can furnish the same goods nt less price. Suppose a cold spring or a late autumn or the coming of an epidemic corners a man, ami his notes come due and he can not meet them, and his rent must be paid, mid there is nothing with which to pay It. and the wages of the employes are due and there is nothing with which to meet that obligation, and the hank will not discount, and tho business friends to .vhom he goes for -Accommodation are In the same though so seldom roference is made in ' predicament, and he bears up and strug- tho liiblo to a part of Ood's hand, if you, and I keep our eyes open and our heart right, we will be competed often to cry out: "This is the finger of Ood." It is my intention before long to begin a series of sermons on "The Astronomy of the Bible, or Ood Among the Stars;" "The Ornithology of the Hible, or Ood Among the Ilhtls;" "Tho Pomology of tho Hible, or Ood Among the Orchards;" "Tho Ichthyology of tho Hible, or Ood Among tho Fishes;" "The Oeology of tho Hible, or God Among the Rocks;" "The Waters of the Bible, or Ood Among the Seas;" "The Zool- ] ogy of tho Hible, or Go.l Among the Beasts;" "Tho Precious Stones of the Bible, or Ood Among tho Amethysts;" "The Conchology of tho Bible, or Ood Among the Shells'." "The Botany of tho Bible, or Ood Among the Flowers;" "The Chronology of tho Bible, or Ood Among tho Centuries," and I want this coming winter to get you and get myself into the habit of seeing tho finger of Ood everywhere and in everything; but this morning I want to Induce you to look for the linger of God In your personal affairs. To most of us gesticulation is natural. If a stranger accost you on tho street and ask you the wny to some place, it is as natural as to breathe for you to level your forefinger this way or that. Not one out of a thousand of you would stand with your hands by your side and mnke no motion with your finger. Whatever you may say with your lips is emphasized and re-enfoveed and translated by your finger. Now, God in the dear old book, says to us innumerable things by the way' of direction. He plainly tells us the way to go. But in every exigency of our life, if we will only look, wo will find a providential gesturo and a providential pointing, so that wo may confidently say: "This is tho flngor of God." Two or three times In my life, when perplexed on questions of duty after earnest prayer, I have cast lots as to what I should do. In olden times, the Lord's people cast lots. Tho land of Canaan wa i divided by lot. The cities woro divided among the priests and Levltes by lot. Matthias was chosen to tho apostlcshlp by lot. Now, casting lots Is about the most solemn thing you can do. It should never be douo except with a solemnity like ' that of tho last judgment. It Is a direct appeal to the 1 Almighty. If, after earnest prayer you do not soom to get the Divine direction, I think you might, without sin, v-ite upon ono slip of pa- .por "Yes," and apon another "No," or some other decisive words appropriate to the case, and then obliterating from your mind tho identity of tho slips of paper, draw the decision and uot upon it. In that case I thinIc you have a right to take that indication as tho finger of God. But do not do that except us the last resort, and with a do- vnutness that loavesubsolutely all with Ood. Yov much thut concerns as we have no responsibility, and wo need not make appeal to the Lord for direction Wa are not responsible for most of our turroundings, We aro not responsible tor the country of our birth, nor for whether we ure Americans, or Norwe^ glans, or Soa'itl.njini, or Irishmen, or Eugllshmen. Wo nro not responsible (or the age in which we live. We are not responsible for our temperament, tw It nervous or phlegmatic, bilious or •anguine. Wo are not responsible for t>u* features, bo they homely or beautiful. We aro not responsible for tho helghth or smalliiens of our stature. ,'••••.Wo ttro not r >>?p <uwlbW» *or the fnut v»tftat we (w« uwt.uvlly dull or brilliant. ¥w the most of orir environments we him from joining the going to India, and gles on, until, utter awhile, crash goes the whole concern. He stands wonder ing and saying: "I do not see the meaning of all this. I have done the best X could. Ood knows I would pay my debts if I could, but hero I am hedged in and stopped." What should tho man do in that ease? Oo to tho Scriptures and read the promise about all things working together for good and kindred passages? That is well. But be needs do something beside reading the Scriptures, lie needs to look for tho finger of Ood that is pointing toward better treasures, that is pointing towar I eternal release, that is urging him to higher realms. No human linger ever pointed to the east or west or north so certainly as the finger of Ood is pointing that troubled man to higher and better spiritual resources that Ho has ever enjoyed. There are men of vast weilth who are as rich for Heaven as they ara for this world, but they are exceptions. 1 f a man grows in grace, It is generally before he gets one hundred thousand dollars or after he loses it. If a man have plenty of railroad securities and has applied to his hanker for more; if the lots he bought have gone up fifty pei cent, in value; if ho had hard work to get the door of his fireproof safe shut because of a new roll of securities he put in there just before locking up at night; if he ha speculating In a falling market or a rising market, and things tuko for him a right turn, ho does not grow in grace very much thnt week. Do you know what made the great revival of 1857, when moro peoplo were converted to Ood, probably, than in any year since Christ was bon? It was tho defalcation and bankruptcy that swopt American prosperity so flat that It could fall no flatter. I am speaking of whole-souled men. Such men are so broken by calamity thnt they aro humbled nnd lly to God for relief. Men who have no spirit and never expect anything are not much affected by tlnnneinl changes. They ure as apt to go into the kingdom under one set of circumstances as another. The only way to get rid of them is to lend them a dollar and yon will never see them again. I have tried that plan and it works well Hut 1 am speaking of the effect of misfortune on high- plrited men. Nothing but trial will turn suolt from earth to Heaven. It is only through clouds and darkness and whirlwind of disaster such a man. can see the finger of God. A most Interesting, ns well as a most useful, study is to watch the pointing of the finger of Ood. In the seventeenth century South Carolina was yielding rosin and turpentine and tar ns her chief productions. Hut Thomas Smith noticed that tho ground near his house in Charleston wus very much like the places in Madagascar where he had raised rice, and some of the Mndagnscar rteo vnis sown there, nnd grow so rapidly th;vt South Carolina was led to mako rice her chief production. Can you not see tho finger of God in that incident? Rev, John Flotohor, of England, many wlU know, was one of tho most useful ministers of the Gospel who ever preached. Before con version he joined tho army nnd had bought his ticket on the ship for Houth America. Tho morning ho was to sail some one spilled on him a kettle of water, and he was so scalded he could not go, lie was very much disappointed, but tho ship he was going to sail on went out and was never hoard of again. Who can doubt that Gad was arranging the life of John Fletcher? Was it merely j anceship kept dragoons nnd spending his life in military service, and reserved him for n. pulpit, the influence of which for gospelization will 5 resound for time and all eternity. i Why did not Columbus sink when in early manhood he was afloat six miles from the beach, with nothing to sits- j tain him till he could swim to land hut a boat's oar? I wonder if his preservu- ; tion had anything to do with America? Had the storm that diverted the May- 1 flower from the month of the Hudson 1 for which it was sailing, and sent it ashore nt Cape Cod, no Divine super- : vlsnl? Does anarchy rule this world, or Ood? St. Felix escaped martyrdom by crawling through u hole in the wall | across which the spiders immediately j afterward wovo a web. His persecutors saw the hole in tho wall, but the j Rpider's web put them off the track. A boy was lost by his drunken father and could not for years Hnd his way home. Nearly grown he went into a Fulton street prayer-meeting and asked for prayers that he might find his parents. His mother was in tho room, and rose and recognized her long-lost son. Do you say that these thing* "only happened so." Tell that to those who do not believe in a Ood and have no faith in the Hible. Do not tell it to me. I M.I id to an aged minister of much experience "All the events of my life seem to have been divinely connected. Do you suppose it N so in nil lives?" lie answered: "Yes, but most people do not notice the Divine leadings." I stand here this morning to say from my own experiense that the safest thing in all the new world to do is to trust to the Lord. I never had a misfortune or a persecution or a trial or a disappointment, however excruciating at the time Ood did not male turn out for my good. My one wish is to follow thn Divine leading. I want to watch the finger of Ood. My friends, I do not know how wo nro going to stand it—I mean the. full inrush of that splendor. Last summer I saw Moscow, in some respects the most splendid city under the sun. The emperor afterward asked me if I had seen it. for Moscow is the pride of Russia. I told him yes. and that I had seen Moscow burn. I will tell you what I meant. After examining nine hundred brass cannons which were picked out of the snow after Napoleon retreated from Moscow, cueh cannon deep cut with letter "N.," I ascended a tower of some two hundred and fifty feet, just before sunset, and on each platform there were bills, large and small, and 1 climbed up among the bells, and then as I reached tho top, nil the bells underneath me began to ring, and they were joined by the bells of fourteen hundred towers and domes and turrets. Some of the bells sent out n faint tinkle of sound, 11 sweet tintinnabulation that seemed to bubble In the nir, and others i thundered forth boom after boom, boom after boom, until it seemed to shake the earth and fill the heavens—sounds so weird, soswect, no awful, so grind,so charming, so tremendous, so soft, so rippling, so reverberating—and they seemed to wreathe and whirl and rise and sink burst and roll and mount and die. When Napolean saw Moscow burn it could not have been moro brilliant 'than when I saw all the one thousand four hundred turrots aflame with the sunset, roots of gold, and walls of malachite, and architecture of all colors, mlng'iug the brown ot autumnal forests, nnd the blue of summer heaveus, and the conflagration of morning skies, nnd the green of ricli meadows, and tho foam of tossing seas. Tho mingling of so many colors with so many sounds was an ontraucement almost too much for human nerves or human cyts or human ears. I expect to see nothing to equal it until you and T see Heaven. But that will surpass it and make the memory of what I saw that July evening in Moscow almost tame and insipid. All Heaven aglow aud all Heaven n-ring, not in tho sunset, but In tho sunrise. Voices of our own kindred mingling with the doxologles of ompires. Organs of eternal worship responding to tho trumpets that havo wakened tho dead. Nations In white. Centuries in coronation. Anthems like, tho voice of many waters. Circle of martyrs, irclo of apostles. Circle of prophets. Thrones of cherubim. Thrones of Beraplim. Throno of Archangel. Throne of Christ. Throno of God. Thrones! Thrones! Thrones'. The finger of God points thnt way. Stop not until you reach the place. Through tho atoning Christ, all I speak of and moro may be yours and mine. Do you not now hear tho chime of the bolls of that metropolis of the universe? Do you not see tho shimmering of tho towers? Good morning. A Ilondurnn schooner is "\vroeUcd nnd thirteen lives lost.
