ftiBKtJARV -lUH. *— A Sttbtitefe trt>i3NVBft,COLO. ( years ago, an au- dietice had assem- b 1 e d for divine •worship. The pas* tor of the church for whom 1 was to preach that Hight, interested in the seating oi the people, stood in the pulpit looking from -Side to side, and when ho more people ' could bo crowded within the Walls, he turned to me nud said, With startling emphasis: "What an opportunity! Immediately that word begun to enlarge, and while a hymn was being 'fiung, at every stanza the word "opportunity" swiftly and mightily un- lolded, and while the opening prayer was being made, the word piled up into Alps and Himalayas of meaning, and spread out into other latitudes and longitudes of significance ^intil it .became hemispheric, and it still grew in altitude nnd circumference until it encircled other worlds, and swept out and on, and around until it was as big sis eternity. Never since have I read or heard that word without being thrilled with its magnitude nnd momentum. Opportunity! Although in the text to some it may seem a mild and quiet note, in the great gospel harmony it is a staccato .passage. It is one of the loveliest and awfulest •words in our language of more than one hundred thousand words of English vocabulary. ' 'As we have opportunity, let us do good. "••' What is an opportunity? The lexicographer would coolly tell you it is a con junction of favorable circumstances for accomplishing a purpose; but words cannot tell what it is. Take a thousand years to manufacture a definition, ,and you could not successfully descrih6 it. Opportunity! The measuring rod with which the Angel of the Apocalypse measured heaven could not measure this pivotal word of mv text., Stand on the edge of the precipice of all time nnd let down the fathoming line hand under hand, and lower down and lower down, and for a quintillion of years let it sink, and the lead will not strike bottom. Opportunity! But while 1 do- not attempt to measure or define the word, I will, God helping me, take the responsibility of telling you something: about opportunity. First, it is very swift in its motions. Sometimes within one minute it starts from the throne of God, sweeps around the earth, and reaseends the thrond from which it started. Within less than sixty seconds it fulfilled its mission. In the second . place opportunity never comes back. Perhaps an oppor tunity very much like it may arrive, Imtythat one never. Naturalists tell us of insects that are born, fulfill their .mission, and expire in an hour; but many opportunities die so soon after they are born that their brevity^of life i& incalculable. What most amazes me is that opportunities do such overshadowing, tar reaching and tremendous wont in such short earthly allowance. .You are a business man of large experience. The past eighteen mouths have been hard on business men. A youflg 1 merchant at his wits' end came into your oftice, or * jur house, and you said, "Times are iiard jioyv, but better days will come. I have, been things as bad, or worse, but we 1 got out, and we will get out of this. The brightest days that this country , .ever &aw are yet to come," The young man to whom you said that was ready for suicide, or something worse,', ijamely, a fraudulent turn to get out of his despairful position. Your hopefulness inspired him for all time, and ijurty years after you are dead he will tie reaping the advantage of your •optimism. Your opportunity to do that one thing fot that young man was not half as long as the time J. have Jaken to rehearse it, '' jfn yonder third gallery you sit, a }jmn of the world, but yoxi wis»h every- fyqdy well. While the clerks are standing round in your store, or the men in ,yp«r factory are taking their noon spell, some ope says, "IJave you heard that ope of ouivmeu has been converted at the revival jneeting 1 in tho Methodist ''church?" While it is being talked 9ver you say, "Well, I do not believe •' in ,feviyalt, Those things do not last. /JPeoplft'^et excited and join the church t ;ajj(J a're uo better than they wore be- I wish pur wen would keep from those meetings." Po you ph, man, what you did in that flj&yte p| depreciation? There* were i\y° yPUflg men in that g$ ou P who that ' \' ", Jiaye gone to those meet- |§"»nd been saved for tlus, world and butyo.u (tesided > hem not to ay0 " ' ' wore than is good for aje disposed 'to be wild, they, heart), you ^ay op iywg f tor day 1 left btlr edtihtfy hffine id rpfe 'after myself? w! fede acfoSS the tftrttfitry, nttd my lather WnS driving. Of odurse f feaid nothing Ifaat implied hbW 1 felt. But there 1 ar<5« hundreds of irien here, who from their owfa experience knew Siow 1 felt. ,At such a time* a young matt may be hopeful, and eVen impatient, to get mtd the battle of life himself, but to 1 leave the home where everything has been done, for you; your father or older brothers taking your part when yott were imposed on by larger boysj and your mother always around, when you got the cold, with mustard applications for the chest, or herb tea to make you sweat off the fever, and sweet mixtures in the cnp by the bed to stop the cough, taking sometimes too much of it because it was pleasant to take; and then to go out one to stand between you and the World, gives one a choking sensation at the throat, and a homesickness before you have got three miles away from the old folks. There was on the day I spoke of a silence for a long while, and then my father began to tell how good the Lord had been to him, in sickness and in health, and when times of hardship caiftc how Providence had always provided the means of livelihood for the large household: and he wound up by saying "De Witt, I have always found it safe to trust the Lord." My father has been dead thirty years, but in all the crises of in}- life—and there have been many of them—I have felt the mighty boost of that lesson in the farm wagon: "Dc Witt, I have always found it safe to trust the Lord!" The, fact ; was, my father saw that was 'his opportunity, and he improved it. This is' oho reason why lam an enthusiastic friend of all Young Men's Christian associations. They get hold of so many young men lust arriving in the city.',,and. ^yhile they are very impressionable, and it is the best opportunity. . Why, how big the houses looked to us as we first entered the great city; and so many. peo-. pie! It seemed some meeting 1 , must have just closed to fill the streets': in that way; and then the big placards, announcing all styles pf amusements, and so many of them on the same night, and every night, after our boyhood had been spent in regions where only once or twice in 'a whole, year there had been! an. entertainment ip school house or church. That is the opportunity. Start- that innocent young man in the right direction. , Sip weeks after will be .too Jate. , 'Te'll me what such a young man-docfe with his first six weeks in a great city, and I will tell you what he will'be 'throughout his life on earth, and where he will spend the ages of eternity. Opportunity! . A city missionary in the lower parts of the city found a young woman in wretchedness and sin. Tie said,. ''Why do you not go home?" She said, "They would not receive me at home." He said, "What is your father's < name, and where does he live?" Having obtained the address' and written tto the .father, the city missionary got a reply, on tho outside of the letter th(V' vs'pi'd. ' •immediate',' un dcrseored, i • It Was the heartiest possible invitiition' ,fpr 'tli'e'I wanderer to come home; That was the city missionary's opportunity". 'Atifl there arc .opportunities all about ypu, and on them written by the. hand 'of the God who will ble'ss you; arid, bless those whom you help,, in capitals of light, the word "immediate;" .-..••'. A military officer very profane in his habits was going down into a mind at i orn wall, .England, ' with' V Qhris- tain miner, for mau'ybf .'those riiin'er§ are Christians. Tho officer used pro*; fauo language while in the cage 1 goV ing down. As they were] coming up out of "the mine the ' profane officer said, "If it be. ;• ^6' far down to your work", how' much farther would it be to the 'Bottomless pit?'* The Christian miner;.re-; tei u fa latfttew ftipef «P.* * dyifif t&eplttSffrl, "Ah that is goo'A. 1 fce've-f ' saw il that before. All is well, 'Though I through the valley of the shadow of death. Thou Wt with meV Shadows hefe, but sunshine above.", So t the dying shepherd got peace. Living and dying may wo hftvfi the same peace! Opportunity! Undef *he ai-ch of tl«it splendid word lefc this multitude of my hearers pass itttd the pardon, and hope", and triumph of the gospal. Go by companies of a hundred each. Go* by regiments of -a thousand /each. ^The aged leaning oil a fetaft; the iniddle aged throwing off their burdens as they passs and the young to have their present joys augmented by more glorious satisfactions. Fofward into the kingdom! As soon as you pass tho dividing line there will be shouting all Up and down the heavens. t The crowned immortals will look down and cheer.

Many yea-rs. ago '(i gyman was on a sloop q» ouV river, and hearing a man .utter a pheiny, the clergymaia said, "You have,; spoken against my best friend, Je&us,'j Clu'ibt." Seven years after, ,'this*samb" clergyman was on his way 'to the 'gepr eral Assembly of the $resbyterian', church at Philadelphia, when a youpg minister addressed him and asked film if he was not on a sloop on the Hudson river seven years before? The; reply was in the affirmative.' "Well," t>aid the young minister, t'i ^as .J>he man whom you corrected for uttering that oath, It led me to tjjink ^n^,j. repent, and I am trying- tp'atope/ 'sipme- what for my early behavior, _ I ia'jn; a preacher of the gospel, and ^ delcgaje to the general assembly.
