He was one j- 1 6f those people who Could swap & '"Tjusliel of corn for a bushel of corn find profit by the transaction, maintaining a teputation for fair measure bnd inch-for-ittch honesty. He re' moved at 16 from Flat Rock to Shiloh. He xvas rapidly" advanced to $40 a ,'lnottth and then to a partnership in a dry goods store. He soon became sole owner of the business. He added a line of School books ant\ coffins, flourished for ten or twelve months, insured everything and got burned out. He went to Fairburn. He flourished, of course. He expanded, as it were, to the limit of his opportunities. His enterprise was a revelation to his competitors. lie had toys for Christinas, Valentines for the 14th of Feb- l fUary, flags for the Fourth of July. ', AThere were rumors that ho had sold 'Whisky—very profitable that, because -very r-isky, the town and county being dry—but the grand jury never did -.anything with it; and Wesley continued to prosper. He attended church and Sunday-school regularly, • ingratiating himself to a degree with "the denomination that had most ad- lierents in the neighborhood. Bvent- ..uaUy he began speculating in cotton. He sent mysterious telegrams in , cyphers and received equally mysterious answers. The telegraph op- Xsrator told all about it, confidentially. The rumor was speedily corroborated, ' as it could be in none but a small . town where everybody knows every- else and everybody else's busi- r •^ \Fairburn -held its breath a while —the; expression is semi-figurative 'of course—in expectation of a catastrophe, the sudden annihilation of Wesley • Sterritt. The negroes who -heard the white folks whispering about it, looked for the earth to open up and literally swallow him up. 'There was no financial crash, no «rack of doom, no sensation of any '-sort. The man simply continued to prosper. The town rubbed its eyes and looked again, to be certain Wesley was still there, and then deliber ately settled down to the conviction that he was a great financier—a man who could hold his own in conflict with the money kings in Wall street. :He came to be regarded as an oracle in the matter of speculative investments. No list of trustees or directors .•could be complete without his name • lie'was offered the mayoralty and 'declined the honor. His store burned 'lip, fully insured —a fact which some envious people and .the insurance adjuster, referring to the similar experience in Shiloh, made a suggestive •coincidence—but AVesiey collected the money and removed to Atlanta. He -started a, business in Atlanta. He "was amply successful. He was dissatisfied. One evening, after a good day's business, he went home in a thoughtful, silent mood. He had little ap- 'yOU MUST GP NOW, WESLEV." for supper. His wife—yes, in„ r lie h»d ft wife.

Sh6 fumbled a bit at hef knitting. 1 ean't be burned out again. I st try something else. 1 must fall. 1 must put that lot in yo' name." He explained the schclne in detail. She listened without comment Until he had finished. Then she folded up the knitting and said quletlyi "That's etealin'. I won't." Wesley's face crimsoned. He was equally 'amazed and angry. She astonished him further before ho could find Words for his wrath by asking sternly: "Is what they Say about them fires o' your'n a fact, Wesley?" He answered with an oath. His face was pale now and his fists were clenched. Ho controlled himself with an effort, and then said slowly: "If you won't, she will; I'll put the lot in -Dory Turner's name, an' you—. Glad enough she'd be Now, Miss Righteous, will the lot bo in yo' name or her'n?" He saw her flush at the mention of Dora Turner's name. Her head and shoulders drooped for an instant as though she had been clazsd by a blow. He had thought it useless to say as much as he had intended to' say, so confident was he that she would submit. He asked triumphantly: "Yo' name or Dory Turner's?" "Mine," she answered. She obeyed implicitly after that, signing papers as he directed. The fraud'was consummated. Outraged creditors attacked the title, but unsuccessfully. The deed was good. Wesley Sterritt owned property in his' wife's name, worth more than 830,000 He calculated that, all things considered, he had done well in business. He had ouly to sell the .lot after a while and.beffin again, probably in Nashville or Louisville, with a cash capital which it would have taken .years to acquire in legitimate business. Meanwhile the house was filled with boarders, the property was paying good interest. • He could afford to wait, to look about leisurely for a purchaser and for an'oppor- tunity to locate elsewhere. ;He went home with his wife from the court house on the day of the final decision. "Is it all over?" she asked. "All ever," he said. "The propei-ty is mine. It's paid for, too." He laughed at his own wit, and laughed at her puzzled, curious expression. "All over," she repeated thoughtfully. . , "May I ask?" he grinned, as the new idea occurred to him, "what you propose to do with yo' property?',' "Yes," she said quietly. "1 perpose' to keep it, Wesley." "You're comin' .out," he said, in mock encouragement, noting the apt; ness with which she matched his grim humor. "An' what, may I ask, do you propose to do with me?" "You must git out, Wesley." "When?" "To-day. Yes, I'll keep the place, I'll pay back what you stole an' keep the place." Then the suspicion, and instantly the certainty, got into Wesley Sterritt's head that the woman was-, in earnest—that she x was crazy and would do exactly what'she said. .Cold perspiration came out in beads Upon his face. He pleaded as,' he never pleaded before. Mrs. Sterritt was inexorable, and answered simply: ' "You must go, Wesley." *'Ain't my credit good for board, Martha?" "Mebbe—with Dory Turner." There was no answer for that, -He looked to see that the window curtains shut off the view from the outside, and then got upon his knees, "Martha," he whined, f'Martha—" "Wesley," she said decisively, "you must go now—go right away." That was ten or twelve years ago. Mrs. Sterritt still keeps the boardinghouse. She has paid off what Wesley Stole, every cent of it, with interest. At long intervals there reappears in Atlanta a homeless sot, the meekest of men, who goes there and asks for Mrs. Sterritt. • She gives him a meal in the kitchen, and says when be has finished it: "You must gq now, Wesley."

Y.,, 5 Dec. iJ.-r-Dr. Talmage chose for the subject of his sermon through the* press ta-tlay, the "Objections to Religious "Jlevivals," from the terct: Luke V:6, "They in- closed a great multitude of fishes, and their net broke." , Simon and his comrades had experienced the night before what fishermen call "poor luck:'" Christ steps On boatd the fishing smack and tells the sailors to pull away from the beach* and directs them to sink the net. Sure enough, Very soon the net is full of fishes, and the sailors begin to haul in. So large a school of fish: was taken, that the hardy men begin to look ^red in the face as they pull, and hardly have,they begun to r.ejoice at their success •'When snap goes-a thread of the net, and snap goes another thread, so there is danger not only of losing the fish,' but of losing the not. Without much care as to how much the boat tilts, or how much water is splashed on deck,, the 'fishermen rush about, gathering up the broken meshes of the hot. Out yonder is a ship dancing on the.wave, and they hail it: "Ship ahoy! bear down.this way)!' The ship comes, and both boats, and fishing smacks are'filled with' the floundering treasures. "!Aht" says some one,, "how much better it would have been if they had stayed on: shore, .and fished, with a hook .and lino, and taken one at a time, instead/of- having this great excitement, and the boat, almost vipset, and the net broken,,and havingj;o call for help, and getting sopping wot with the sea!" 'The church is ! the boat, the the net, society, is the sea, and a great revival is a whole school brought • in at one sweep of the net. I have admiration for , that man who goes out with a -.hook and line to fish. 1 admire : the .way -lie unwinds the reel, and 1 adjusts the bait, and drops' the hook in! a quiet .place on a still afternoon, and here .catches 6ne and there one; but I like also a big boat,-and a large crew, and a net a mile long,, and swift oars, and stout sails, and a stiff breeze, and a great multitude of :souls brought—so great a multitude 'that you have to get help to draw it ashore/straining the net to the utmost until it'breaks here and there, letting a few escape, but bringing the great multitude into eternal safety. In other .words, I.believe in revivals. The great work of saving men began With 3,000 ; people joining the church in, and it will close with forty or a hundred million people saved in' twenly-four hours, when nations shall be born in a day. But there are objections to revivals. People are op- posed'to them because the net might get broken, and if by the pressure of does not get broken, then they takeltheir myn penknives ancl slit the net, ..''They inclosed a great multitude of fishes and the net broke." sometimes opposed to revivals of religion that those who come into the church at such times do not hold .out; as long as there is a gale of blessing, they have their sails up; but as soon as strong- winds stop blowing, then they drop into a dead calm. JBut •what are the facts in the case? In all our churches, the vast majority of the useful people are those who are brought in under' great awakenings, arid they hold but. Who are the prominent men in the United States in churches, in prayer meetings, in Sabbath schools? For the most part they are the product of great awakenings. I have noticed that those who are brought into the Kingdom of God through revivals have more persistence and more determination in the Christian life than those who come in under a low state of religion. People born in an ice house may live, but they will never get over the cold they caught in the ice house. ' A cannon ball depends upon the impulse with which it starts for how far itshall go and how swiftly; and the greater the revival force with which a soul is started, the more far- j-eaching and Jar-resounding will' be the execution. But it is sometimes objected to revivals that there is so much excitement that people mistake hysteria for religion. We must admit that in every revival of religion there is either a suppressed or a demonstrated expitement. Indeed, if a man can go out of a state of condemnation into a state of acceptance with God, or see others go, without any agitation of soul, he is in an unhealthy, morbid btate, and is as repulsive and absured as as a man who should boast he saw a child snatched out from under a horse's hoofs, and felt no agitation, or saw a man rescued from the fourth story of a house on fire, and felt no acceleration of the pulse. Salvation from sin and death and hell into life and peace and heaven forever, is such a tremendous thing that if a man tells me he can look on it without any agitation I doubt bis Christianity, The fact is, that sometimes excitement is the most impor^ tant possible thing, Jn ease of resusie- tation from,4r° w ning oy freezing the pnp idea is t° oxcite anjimatien. Her *PV<J conversion we are dead.

Babert Hall) the pi-inee of Baptist pteachei-s, •tvas converted at 12 yeafs of'age. It is supposed he knew what he was'about. Matthew Henry, the comme'iltator, who did more than any man of his century foi 1 increasing' the interest in the study of the scriptures, •was converted at 11 years of age; Isabella Graham, immortal in the Christian church, was converted at 10 years of age; Dr. Watts, whose hymns Will be sung all down the ages, Was converted at 9 years of age; Jonathan Edwards, perhaps the mightiest intellect that the American pulpit ever produced, was converted at 7 years of age; and that father and mother take an awful responsibility when they tell their child at 7 years of age, "You are too young to be a Christian," or "You are too young to connect yourself with the church." That is a mistake as long as eternity. If during-a revival two persons present themselves as candidates for the church, and the one is ten years of age and the other is 40 years of age, I will have more confidence in the profession of religion of the one 10 years of age than the one 40 years of age. Why? The one who professes at 40 years of age has forty years of impulse in the wiong direction to correct, the child has only ten years in the wrong direction to correct. Four times ten are forty. Four times the religious prospect for the lad that comes into the kingdom of God, and into the church at 10 years of age than the man at 40. 1 am very apt to look upon revivals as connected with certain' men who fostered them. People who in this day do not like revivals, nevertheless have not words to express their admiration for the revivalists of the past, for they were revivalists—Jonathan Edwards, John Wesley, George " Whitfield, Fletcher. Griffin, Davies, Osborn, Knapp, Nettleton, and many others whose names come to my mind. The strength of their intellect and the holiness of their lives make me think they would not have anything to do with that which was ephemeral. Oh! it is easy to talk against revivals. A man said to Mr. Dawson: "I like your sermons very much, but the after meetings I despise. When the prayer meetings begin I always go up into the gallery and look down, and I am disgusted." "Well," said Mr. Dawson, "the reason is you go on the top of your neighbor's house and look down his chimney to examine his fire, and of course you only get smoke in your eyes. Why don't you come in the door and sit down and warm?" Oh! I am afraid to say anything against revivals of religion, or against anything that looks like them, be; cause 1 think it may be a sin against the Holy Ghos^, and you know the Bible says that a sin against the Holy Ghost shall never be forgiven, neither in this world nor the world to come. Now, if you are a painter, and I speak against your pictures, do I not speak against you? •• If you are an architect, and I speak against a building you put tip, do I not speak against you? If a revival be the work of the Holy Ghost, and I speak against that revival, do I not speak ag'ainst the Holy Ghost. And whosoever speaketh against the Holy Ghost, says the Bible, he shall never be forgiven, neither in this world nor in the world to come. I think sometimes people have made a fatal mistake in this direction. Many of you know the history of Aaron Burr. He was one of the most brilliant men of his day. I suppose this country never produced a stronger intellect. Ho was capable of doing anything good and great for his country, or for the Church of God had he been rightly disposed; but his name is associated with treason against the United States government which he tried to overthrow, and with libertinism and public immorality. Do you know where Aaron Burr started on the downward road, It was when he was in college, and he became anxious about his soul, and was about to put himself .under the Influences of a revival, and a minister of religion said: Don't go there Aaron, don't go there; that's a place of wildfire and great excitement; no religion about that; don't go'there," He tarried away. His serious impressions departed. He started on the downward road. And who is responsible for his ruin? Was it the minister who warned him against that revival? When I am speaking of excitenjent in revivals, of course I do not mean temporary derangement of the nerves; I do not mean the absurd things of which we have read as transpiring sometime in the church of Christ, but I mean an intelligent, intense, all absorbing agitation of body, mind and soul in the work of spiritual escape and spiritual rescue, The difficulty is that when a revival begins in a church it begins at so many points, that while you have doused one anxious soul with a pail of cold water, there are 500 other anxious souls on fire. Ob,! how much better it would be to lay hold of the chariot of Christ's gospel and help pull it on rather than to fling ourselves in - front pf the wheels, fyteg 1 *° k!°cl? their progress, \Ve will not stop the chariot, but we "yes, wiH P 6 Jfrpuncl tP powdery you ever hea.r that ther§ was a fltjpn once, held, appng tbfl'ioe* in the Arctic?- J| gesmj that the jetting h^ttey an.0, hotter, ;$U mm T^^,m,m^m, 'mmiim^w^mm^' •• ofift taoleof (idnvefition to oi-def-. fefit the sufl kept gfowing in Intensity of n6«t, aftd the sotith witrd blew strong*ef and stronger, a-nd soon all tne 1<& field began to flriw away. The fli-st f esolutioft passed by the convention was: "fte- solved, That we abolish the sun." But the Sun would not be abolished. The heat of the sufl grew greater and greatefr Until after awhile the vefy king of the icebei-gs began to perspire under the glow, and the smaller ice* bergs fell over, and the cry was: "Too much excitement! order! order!" Then the wbole body, the whole field of ice, began to flow out, and a thousand voices began to ask: "Where are we going to now? Where are we floating to? We will all break to pieces." By this time the icebergs had reached the gUlf stream; and they were melted into the bosom of the Atlantic ocean. The Warm sun is the eternal spirit. The icebergs are frigid Christians. The warm gulf stream is a great revival. The ocean into which everything melted is the great, wide heart of the par* dpning and sympathizing God. But I think, after all, the greatest obstacle to revivals throughout Christendom to-day is an unconverted ministry, We must believe that the vast majority of those who officiate at sacred altars are regenerated; but I suppose there may float into the min* istry of all the denominations of Christians men whose hearts have never been changed by the grace of God. Of course they are all antagonistic to revivals. Suppose by some extra prolongation of human life, at the next fifty years you should walk around the world, you would not in all that walk find one person that you recognize. Why? All dead, or so changed you would not know them. In other words, if you postpone the redemption of this world for fifty years, you admit that the majority of the two whole generations shall go off the stage unblessed and unsaved. I tell you the church of Jesus Christ can not consent to it. We must pray and toil and have the revival spirit, and we must struggle to have the whole world saved before the men and women now in middle life pass off. "Oh!" you say, "it is too vast an enterprise to be conducted in so short a time." Do you know how long it would take to save the whole world if each man would bring another? It would take ten years. By a calculation in compound interest, each man bringing another and that one another, and that one another, in ten years the whole world would be saved. If the world is not saved in the next ten years, it will be the fault of the Church of Christ. It seems to me as if God is preparing the world for some quick and universal movement. A celebrated electriciali gave me a telegraph chart of the world. On that chart the wires crossing the continents and the cables under the sea looked like veins read with blood. On that chart I see that the headquarters of the lightnings are in Great Britain and the United States. In London and New York the lightnings are stabled, waiting to be harnessed for some qviick dispatch. That shows you that the telegraph is in possession of Christianity. It is a significant fact that the man who invented the telegraph was an old fashioned Christian—Prof. Morse, and that the man who put the telti- graph under the sea was an old fashioned Christian—Cyrus W. Field; and that the president of the most famous of the telegraph companies of country was an old fashioned Christian—William Orton, going straight to his home in heaven. What does all that mean? I ,do not suppose that the telegraph was invented merely to let us know whether flour is up or down, or which filly won the race at the Derby, or which marksman beat at Dolly mount. I supposed the telegraph was invented and built to call the world to God. In some of the attributes of the Lord we seem to share on a small scale. For instance, in his love and in his kindness, But until of late, foreknowledge, omniscience, omnipresence, omnipotence, seem to have been exclusively God's possession. God desiring to make the race like himself, gives us a species of foreknowledge in the weather probabilities, gives us a species of omniscience in telegraphy, gives us a species of omnipresence in the telephone, gives us a species of omnipotence in the steam power, coveries and inventions all around about us, people are asking what next? I will tell you what next. Next, a stupendous religious movement, Next, the end of war. Next, the crash of despotisms, Next, the world's expurgation. Next, the Christlike dominion, Next, the judgment. What becomes of the world after i care not, It will have suffered and achieved enough for one world, Lay it up in the dry docks of eternity, like an old man-of- war gone out of service, Or, fit it up like a ship of relief to carry bread to some other suffering planet. Or, lei it be demolished. Farewell, dear ol<] world, that began with paradise ancl ended with judgment conflagration.
