For a while it ;/tfcftasted nnd degenerated, and ffoin "i* 1 eatt read for ages the whole tend- Wa6 toward barbarism. But 1 fclie ever widetiitig and deepen- t itig influence of tjiristianity the tt-nd* 'eflCy is no.vintlip upward, direction. '"*Tlie physical appearance of the human ' irafce is 75 per cent more attractive than in the sixteenth, seventeenth or iightcenth centuries. From the pictures on canvas and the faces and forms in sculpture of those who wore <jonsidei'cd the grand looking men and «je attractive wometi of 200 years ligo, 1 conclude the superiority of the men and women of our time. Such look« )'f/.stlio'P'tist- centuries as s »«u sculpture have presented «,«; fine specimens of beauty and dignity would be in our time considered .deformity and rcpulsivoncss complete. Tlio fact that many men and women In antediluvian times were, eight nnd ten feet high tended to make the human race Obnoxious rather than winning. Such portable mountains of human flesh did not add to the charms •of the world.; But in no chmntc and in no age did there ever appear any one who in physical attractiveness could be compared to him whom my text celebrates, thousands of years before he put his infantile foot on the hill back of Bethlehem. «He was, and is, altogether lovely. The physical appearance of Christ is, for the most part, an artistic guess. Some writers declare him to have been a brunette or dark <;omploxioned, and others a blonde or light complcxioned. St. John, of Damascus, writing 1,100years ngo, and so much nearer than ourselves to the time of Christ, and hence with more likelihood of accurate tradition, represents him with beard black and curly, •eye-brows joined together, and "yellow complexion, and long fingers liko ibis, mother.". An author writing 1,500 jrears ago represents Christ as a blonde: ' ."Ilia'hair'the color "of'wine and golden • at the root; straight and without luster; but from the level of tho cavs •curling and glossy, and divided down the center after the fashion of the . ..Nazarenes. His forehead is even and .smooth, his face without blemish, and •enclianced by a tempered bloom; his •countenance ingenuous and kind. Nose .and mouth are in no way faulty. His beard is full, of the same color as his liair, and forked in form; his eyes blue .and extremely brilliant." > My opinioh'is" it was a Jewish face. His mother was a Jewess, aud there is •no womanhood on earth more beautiful than Jewish womanhood, that he lived so long before the Daguerrean and photographic arts •were born, or we-might have known - -his exact features. 1 know that.sculp- ture and painting wcro born long before .Christ, and they mighthave transferred from olden, times to our times the forehead, the nostril, the eye, the lips of our Lord. Phidias the sculptor •put.down his chisel of enchantment flOO years before Christ came. Why did not some one take up that chisel, and give us tho side face or full face of our Lord? Polygnotus tho painter put down his pencil 40(i years before •Christ Why did not some one take it nip, and give us at least the eye of. opr Lord, the eye, that sovereign of the face? Dionysius the literary artist who saw at Heliopolis, Egypt, the titrange darkening of the heavens at tho time of Christ's crucifixion near .Jerusalem, and not knowing what it was, but describing it as a peculiar •eclipse of the sun, and saying, "Either .' the Deity suffers or sympathizes with ^tma ciifFnt-nr." t.liiit I)ionvsius micrht with- these Scoideu &6ftia t»* ttie ais hftpsthe little etfes may hate «iftv1fl# Itt the dStt, and thei? fad6& inay" not fiaVg b66n Clean, 6f tli6y nifty not hfttTS beett well 61ad, of the disciples may have thbflght Christ s religion Was ft religion chiefly tot big folks, nut Christ made the InfftitUle excitement still livelier by his saylflg that he liked children better thAU grown people, declaring, "texccpt ye becoine ns a little child ye can not enter Into aiftfidirJg fcheldJ <5hbir3 of • .tnSsite&fcl^teWe^bfe&tteaf fcaf, aftd tlvifig healthful BePfdBS System to Cataleptic^!

When tve were in great trouble, some ofle eatne in with voluble consolation and quoted the scripture in & sort «ome sufferer," that Dionysius might have put his pen to the work, and drawn the portrait of our Lord. But •no! the fine arts were busy perpetuating the form and appearance of tho world's favorites .oniy, and not tho form and appearance of the peasantry, amqng whom Christ appeared It was not until the fitteenth cen- fcury, or until more than fourteen hun- ilred years after Christ, that talented painters attempted by pencil to give us the idea of Christ's face. The pictures before that time were so offensive that the council at Constantinople forbade their exhibition. But Leonardo Da Vinci, in the fifteenth century presented Chrjgt'.s face ou two canvases, vet the one" was' a repulsive : face, and $he other an effeminate face. Raphael's . face of Christ is a weak face. Albert Purer's face of Christ was a savage face. Titian's face of Christ is an expressionless face. The mightiest artists, either with pencil or chisel, have made Signal failure in attempting tegive the forehead, the cheek, the eyes, the nostril, the mouth of our blessed Lord, Hut about his face I can tell you sotnething positive, and beyond con* $rove*F$y- I am sure it was a soulful |ace. f he f steels only tbecurtainof tha «pul. }twa§ impossible that a dispose Uke Ch/ust's should not have de. itself \n his physiognomy.

Alas! for those people who do not like children. They had better stay out of licavofi, for the place is full of them. That, I think, is one reason why the vast majority of tho human race die in infancy. Christ is so fond of children that he takes them to himself before the world has time to despoil and harden thorn, and so they nre HOW at the windows of the palace, nnd on the doorsteps, and playing on the green. Sometimes Jlatthew, or Mark, or Luke tells a story of Christ, and only one tells it, but'Matthew, Mark arid Luke all join in hat picture of Christ girdled by children? amUl know by what occurred at that time lhat Christ had a face full of geniality, Not only was Christ altogether lovc- lv in his countenance, but lovely in his habits. I know, without being told, that the Lord who made the rivers, nnd lakes, and oceans, was cleanly in his appearance. He disliked the disease of leprosy, not only because it was distressing, but because it was not clean, nnd his curative words were, "I will; be thoti clean." He declared himself in favor of thorough washing, and opposed to superficial washing, when he denounced the hypocrites for making clean only "the outside of the platter." and he applauds his disciples_by saying, "Now are ye clean,"and giving directions to those who fasted, among other things he says, "Wash thy face;" and to a blind man whom lie was doctoring, "Go wash in the pool of Siloam." And he himself actually washed the disciples' feet, I suppose not only 1o demonstrate his own humility, but probably their feet needed to be washed. The fact is, the Lord was a great friend of water. I know that from the fact that most of tho world is water. But when I find Christ in such constant commendation Of water, 1 know he was personally neat,although he.mingled much among very'rough populations, and took such long journeys on dusty highways. He wore, his hair long, according to the custom of his hind aud time, but neither trouble nor old age-had thinned or injured his locks, which were never worn shaggv or unkempt Yea, all his habits of personal appearance were lovely. Sobriety was also an established habit of his life. In addition to the water he dranK the juice of the grape. When tit a, wedding party this beverage gave out, he made gallons on gallons of grape juice, but it was as unlike what the world makes in our time Alas! I as health is different from disease, and as calm pulses are different from the paroxysms of delirium tremens. There was no .strychnine in that beverage, or logwood, or mix vomiea.,, Tlio tipplers and the .sots who now quote, the wine-making in ('ana of Clalilee as an excuse for the fiery .and damning beverages of the nineteenth century forget that the wine at tho Now Testament wedding had two characteristics, the one that the Lord mude it, and the other that it was made out of water. Buy all you can of that kind and drink it at least three times a day, and send a barrel of it around to my cellar. You can not make me believe that tho blessed Christ who wont up and down healing tho sick, would create for man that style of drink which is the cause of disease more than all other causes combined; or that he who calmed the maniacs iuto their right mind, would create that stylo of drink which does more than anything clsoto fill insane asylums; or that ho who was so helpful to tho poor, would make a stylo of drink that crowds the earth with pauperism; or that he wlio came to save the nations from sin, would create a liquor that is tilt source of most of the crime that now stuffs the penitentiaries, A lovely sobriety was written all over his face, from tho hair-line of tho forehead to the bottom of the bearded chin. Domesticity was also his habit Though too poor to have a home of his own, he went out to spend tlie night at Bethany, two or throe mfles walk from Jerusalem, and over a rough and hilly roud that made it equal to six or seven ordinary miles, every morning and night going to and fro. I would rather walk from here to Central park, or walk from JikUnburgh to Arthur's Seat, or in London clear around Hyde Park, than to walk that road that Christ walked twice a day from Jerusalem to Bethany. But ho liked the quietude of home life, aud he was lovely in his domesticity. How lie enjoyed handing over the resurrected boy to his mother, and the resurrected girl to her father, and reconstructing homesteads which disease or death was breaking up. As the song, "Home, Sweet Home," was written by a man who at that time bad no home, so I think the homelessncss of Christ added to his appreciation of domes ticity- Furthermore, he was lovely in his sympathies. Sow, dropsy is a most distressing complaint, it inflames, and swells, and tortures any limb 01 physical organ it touches. As uoon as a case of that kind is submittec to Christ, he, without any use of diaphoretics, #ommands its cure. And what an eye doctor be was for opeuing the long closed gates pf sight to the blue of the sky, and the yellow of the flower, auc the emerald ol the grabs! What a, " " )m iya& toy eoojjug fevers with ' a§ a spopnfui pf febri o of heartless way, and did not help us at all. ftut after 'a while some one else came in, and without saying a word sat down and burst itito a flood of tears at the sight of our woe, atid somehow it helped Us right away. "JesUs wept." Yon see, it was a deeply-attached household, that of Mary and Martha, and Lazarus The father and mother Were dead, and the girls depended on thefcr brother. Lazarus had said to them, "Now Mary, now Martha, stop your worrying. I will take care of you. I xvill be to you both father and mother. My arm is strong. Girls, you can depend ou nicl" John Murphyt: .Well,; you did not' know him. Once, when I was in great bereavement, ho came to my house. Kind ministers of the gospel had come and talked beautifully and prayed with us, and did all they could to console. But John Murphy, one of the best friends I ever had, a big-souled, glorious Irishman, came In and looked into my face, put out his brdnd, strong hand and said not a word, but sat down and cried with us. I am not enough of a philosopher to say how it was, or why it was, bub somehow from door to door and from floor to ceiling the room was filled with an all- pervading comfort. "Jesus wept" I think that is what makes Christ such a popular Christ There are many who want sympathy. BITS OF 1AUGHMB.

"Did he prove it when her father lost everything?" "Yes. He was found dead the next day with a note saying it was heart- failure." th» ttlooittliinf Idiot and What Me Old, Fiskc, the famous Ncstorian mission ary, was in the chapel one day talking ;o the heathen, and she was in very :>oor health, and so weak she sat upon i mat while she talked, and felt the need of something to lean against, when she felt a woman's form at, her back, and heard a woman's voice say- "Iican on me." She leaned a little, but did not want to bo too cumbersome, when the woman's voice said, "Lean hard, if you love me, loan hard." And that makes Christ so lovely. He wants all 'the sick, nnd troubled, and we.ary ' to -lean against him/and.-hu says, "Lean hard, if you love me, lean hard." Aye, he is close by with his sympathetic help. Hodloy Vicars, the famous soldier and Christian of the Crimean war. died because when lie was wounded his regiment was too far oft' from the tent of supplies. He was not mortally wounded, and if the surgeons could only have got at the biuuliures and the medicines, he would have recovered, So much of human sympathy H.ijd hopefulness comes ton late; but Christ is always close by if wo want him, aud has all the medicines ready, and has eternal life for all who ask for it. Sympathy! Aye, he was lovely in his doctrines. Self-sacrifice, or the relief of the suffering of others by our own suffering. He was the only physician that uvor proposed to cure his, patients by talc- ing their disorders. Self-sacrifice! And what did he not give up for others? Tho best climate in the universe, the air of heaven, for tho wintry weather of Palestine; a scepter of unlimited dominion for a prisoner's box in an earthly courtroom, a Hushing tiara .for a crown of atinging brambles; a palace for a cattle pen; a throne for a cross. Self-sacrifice! What is more lovely.' Mothers dying for 1 their children down with seat-lot fever; railroad engineers going down through' tho open drawbridge to save tho train; fireman scorched to death trying to help soino one down the ladder from tho fourth story o£ the consuming house; all these put together only faint and insufficient similes by which to illustrate tho grander, mightier, farther-reaching .self-sacrifice of tho "altogether 1 lovely." Do you wonder that tho story of his salt-sacrifice lias loci hundreds of thousands to die for him? In one series of icrsecu lions over 200,000 were put to loath for Christ's sake. For him ilandina WHS tied to a post aud wild >casts wore let out upon her, and vhen life continued .:.after tho attack of tooth and paw, she was put in a net, and that net containing her was ,hrown to a wild bull, that tossed her vith its horns till life wfis extinct. All for Christ! Huguenots dying for ;hrist! Albigenses dying for Christ) The Vaudois dying for Christ! Smithfield tires endured for Christ! Tlio son'es of martyrs, if distributed, would nake a path of moldering life all around the earth, The loveliness of ihe Savior's sacrifice has inspired all the heroisms, and all the martyrdoms of subsequent centuries. Christ has liad more men and women die for him than all the other inhabitants of all the ages have had die for the j. Furthermore, he was lovely in hiu sermons, lie knew when to begin, when to stop, and just what to -say, The longest sermon he ever preached, so far as the Jiible reports him, namely, the Sermon op the Mount, was abo.ut sixteen minutes in delivery a,t tho ordinary rate of speech. His longest prayer reported, commonly called "The Lord's Prayer," was about half a minute. Time them ty 7<W *WR watch, and you will find my estimate accurate. By which J do not mean to say that sevmons ought tp bo only sixteen minutes long, and prayers only liaif a minute long. Christ had guch infinite power of compresfaiofi that bo could put enough into his bixteeo minute seywon, and, his half minute prayer, to Jfcop all the following ages, busy in, thought and action. $o one but a Christ could afford to pray 01 preach us short as tha_t. but he |p teach, »9 Planting both feet firmly, he remained rooted to the spot, but soon his fertile brain began to work, and ho suddenly grew profuse in the various" branches under discussion.
