Tah mage, who Is stitl absent on his Western idcturlttf-tour. Chose a subject of universal viz : Troubles," the text selected being Efze- klel 27: 24: "These were thy inorchattts in all softs of things." We are at the opening door of re» turning national prosperity. The coming crops, the re-establishment of public confidence, and, above all, the bless-- ihg of God, will turn In upon all sections of America the widest, greatest prosperity, this country has even seen. But that door of successes is not yet fully open, and thousands of business men are yet suffering from the distressing times through which we have been passing. Some of the best men in the land have faltered; men whose hearts are enlisted in every good work, and whose hands have blessed every great charity. The Church of Qod can afford to extend to them her sympathies, and plead before heaven with all-availing prayer. The schools such men have established, the churches they have built, the asylums and beneficent institutions they have fostered, will be their eulogy long after their banking institutions are forgotten. Such men can never fall. They have their treasures in banks that never break, and will be millionaires forever. But I thought it would be appropriate, to-day, and useful, for me to talk about the trials and temptations of our business men, and try to offer some curative prescriptions. In the first place, I have to remark that a great many of our business men feel ruinous trials and temptations coming to them from small and limited capital In; business. It Is everywhere understood that it takes now three or four times as much to do business well as once it did. Once, a few hundred dollars were turned into goods—tho merchant, would be his own store- sweeper, his own salesman, his own bookkeeper; lie would manage all the affairs himself, and everything would be net profit. Wonderful changes have come; costly apparatus, extensive advertising, exorbitant store rents, heavy taxation, expensive agencies are only parts of the demand made upon our commercial men; and when they have found themselves in such circumstances with small capital, they have sometimes been tempted to run against the rocks of moral and financial destruction. This temptation of limited capital has ruined men In two ways. Sometimes they have shrunk down under .the temptation. They have yielded the battle before the first shot was fired. At the first hard dun they surrendered. Their knees knocked together at the fall of the auctioneer's hammer. They blanched at the financial peril. They did not understand that there is such a thing as heroism in merchandise, and that there are "Waterloos -of the counter, and that a man can fight no braver battle with the sword than he can with the yardstick. Their souls melted in them because sugars were up when they wanted to buy, and down when they wanted to sell, and unsaleable goods were on the shylf, and bad debts in their ledger. The gloom of their countenances overshadowed even their dry goods and groceries. Despondency, coming from limited capital, blasted them. Others have felt it in a different way. They have said: "Here I have been trudging along. I have been trying to be honest, all these years. I find H Is of no use. Now It is make or break." The small craft that could have stood the stream, is put out beyond the light-house, on the great sea of speculation. He borrows a few thousand dollars from friends, who dare not refuse him, and he goes bartering on a large scale, He; reasons in this way: "Perhaps, I. may succeed, and if I don't I'• will,be no worse pff than I am now, for a hundred thousand dollars taken from nothing, nothing remains." Stocks are the dice with which he gambles. He bought for a few dollars vast tracts of western land. Some man at the Bast, living on a fat homestead, meets this gambler of fortune, and is persuaded to trade off his estate, for lots in»a western city with large avenues, and costly palaces, and lake steamers smoking at the wharves, and rail-trains coming down with lightning speed from every direction. There it is all' on naper! The city has never been built, nor the railroads constructed, but everything points that way, and s the thing will be done as sure as you liv.e. Well, the man goes on, stopping at no fraud of outrage, In h}s splendid equipage he dashes past, while the honest laborer looks up, and wipes the 9weat from his brow, and says, "I wonder where that man got all .his money," After awhile the bubble bursts, Creditors rush In. The 'law clutches, but finds nothing In Its grasp. The men who were swindled say: "I dont 1 know how I could have ever been deceived by tl»at man;" and the pictorials, in handsome woQd-cqts, set forth the hero who In ten years had genius enough to fail for ?150,OQO! And that is the process by which many have been tempted through limit tation of, capital, "te rush into iaby- • ' from wh'eh they could nPt be ex» •"' I would, not want to block .

Tjiis excitement of the brain, this corroding care of the' heart, this strain of effort that exhausts the spirit, sends a great many of our best men, In middle' life, Into the grave. Their life dashed out against money safes. They go with their store on their backs. They trudge like Camels, sweating, from Aleppo to Damascus. They make their life a crucifixion. Standing behind desks and counters, banished from the fresh air, weighed down by' carktng cares, they are 03 many suicides. Oh! I wish I could, .to-day, rub out some of these lines of care; that I could lift some of the burdens from the heart; that I could give relaxation to some of these worn muscles. It Is time for you to begin to take it a little easier. Do your best, and then trust God for the rest. No not fret. God manages all the affairs of your life, and he manages them for the best. Consider the lilies— they always have robes. Behold the fowls of the air— they always have nests. Take a long breath. Bethink, betimes, that God did not make you for a pack-horse. Dig yoursolves out from among the hogsheads and the shelves, and in the light of the holy Sabbath day resolve that you will give to the winds your fears, and your fretfulness, and your . distresses. You brought "nothing into the world, and It is very certain you can carry nothing out. Having 'food and raiment, be therewith content. The merchant came home from the store. There had been a great disaster there. He opened the front door, and said, in the midst of his family clrgle: "I am ruined. Everything Is gone. I am all ruined." His wife said: "I am left;" and the little child threw up its hands and said: "Papa, I am here." The aged grandmother, seated In the room, said: "Then you have all the promises- of God be- sl'de, John." And he burst into tears, and said: "God forgive me, that I have been so ungrateful. I find I .have a great many things left. God forgive me." Again. I remark, that many of .our business men are tempted to neglect their home duties. How often it is that the store and the home seem 'to clash, but there ought not to be any collloslon. It is often the case that the father Is the mere treasurer of. the 'family, a sort of agent to see that they have dry goods and groceries. The work bf»family, government he : does not touch. Once or twice a year he calls the children up on a Sabbath afternoon, when he has a half hour he does not exactly know what to do with, and in that half hour he disciplines the children,' and chides them and corrects their faults, and gives them a great deal of good advice, and then wonders all the rest' of the year that his children do not do better, when they have the' wonderful advantage of that semi-annual castlgatlon. The family table, which ought to be the place for pleasant discussion and cheerfulness, often becomes the place of perilous expedition. 1C there be any blessing asked at all, it is cut oft. at both ends and with the hand on tho carving knife. He counts on his fingers making estimates in the interstices of the repast. The work done, the hat goes to the head and he starts down the street, and before the family; have arisen from the table he has bound up another bundle, of goods and says to the customer: "Anything more I can for you today, sir?" A man has more responsibilities than those which /are charged by putting competent instructors over his children and giving them u, drawing master and a music teacher. The physical culture of the . child will not be attended to unless the father looks to it. He must sometimes lose his dignity. He must unllmber • his joints, He must sometimes lead them .out to their sports and games. ' The parent who eannol? forget tho .severe duties of life sometimes to fly the kite, and trundle the hoop, and chase the ball, and Jump the rope with his children ought never to have been tempted out of a crusty and unredeemable solitariness, If you want to keep your children away from places of sin you can only do it by making 1 your home attractive. You may preach sermons, and advocate j-efoims, and denounce wickedness, and yet your children will be captivated by the glittering saloon of sin unless you can make your home a brighter place than any other place on earth to them- Oh! gather all charms Into your house, If you can afford it bring books, and pictures, and cheerful entertainments to the household. But, above all, teach those children, not by half art hour twice a year on the Sabbath day, but day after day, and every day teach them that religion is a £reat gladness; that it throws chains of gold about the neck; that It takes no spring from the foot, no blitheness from the heart, no sparkle from the eye, no ring from the laughter, but that "her ways are ways of pleasantness, and all her paths are peace," I sympathize with the wgrk being done in many of our cities by which beautiful rooms are set a/part by our Young Men's Christian associations, "d[e>.tdmtl-tftete ft* sbrfi a tWfif tW lafcM ttSe trf fHofrey— i n«5-bf pray 13ad tp prosper them in all things, I te» you there js something 0f that and before that: We need more Jjappy, 'consecrated. ph,eerful Christian everywhere.

However fine your apparel, the w^hds of death will flutter It like rags. Hohiesptih ahd a threadbarp coat have sometimes been the shadow of coming robes made white In the blood of the lamb. The pearl of great price is worth more' than /any gehi you can bring from the ocean, tHan Australian or Brazilian mines strung in one carcanet. Seek after God; find his righteousness and all shall be Well; all shall he well hereafter. Some of you remember the shipwreck of the "Central America." That noble steamer had, I think, about BOO passengers aboard. Suddenly the storm came ahd the surges trampled the decks and Swung Into the hatches and there Went Up a hundred-voiced death shriek. Tho foam on the Jaw of the wave. The pitching of the steamer as though it were leaping a mountain. The dismal flare of the signal rockets. The long cough of the steam pipes. The hiss of extinguished furnaces. The walking of God on the waves! The steamer went not down Without a struggle. Aa the passengers stationed themselves in rows to bale out the vessel hark to the thump of the buckets, as men unused to toll, with blistered hands and strained muscle, tug for their lives. There la a sail seen against the sky. The flash of the distress gun Is noticed, Its voice heard not for it is choked in the louder booming ot the sea. A few passengers escaped, but the steamer gave on great lurch and was gone! So there are some men who sail cm prosperously In life. All's well; all's well. ,But at last, some financial disaster comes; a euroclydon. Down they go! the bottom of the commercial sea is strewn with shattered hulks. But because your property goes do not let your soul go. Though all else perish save that, for I have to tell you of a more stupendous shipwreck than that which I Just mentioned. God launched this world six thousand years ago. It has been going on under freight of mountains ami immortals, but one day It will stagger at the cry of fire. The timbers of rock will burn, the mountains flame like masts, and the clouds like sails in tho judgment hurricane. Then God shall take the passengers off the deck, and from the berths those who have long been asleep in Jesus and he will set them far beyond the reach of storm and peril. But how many shall go down will never be known until It shall be announced one day In heaven; the shipwreck of the world! So many millions saved! Oh! my dear hearers, whatever you lose, though your houses go, though your lands go, though all your earthly possessions perish, may God Almighty, through the blood of the everlasting covenant, save all your souls. Individual Communion The Congregrationallst publishes the following opinion of a physician as to the use of the individual cup at the communion servicfi: Not one of the authors of this movement, so far as I have been able to ascertain, has made any painstaking research to justify the unwarranted conclusions arrived at; on the other hand, years ago, at considerable trouble and expense, I sought information from the most distinguished medical men in the world on this subject. From that time until this no medical man, has ever been able, to my knowledge, to produce one solitary case where participation in the sacred ceremony of holy communion has been the cause of disease. I think, therefore, it is safe to assume that, ^v•ith the many interesting and valuable Investigations still 'undetermined, medical men had bette'r seek some other source as the cause' ol infection from disease, v Attractive) Religion. . Is your religion winsome? Does It charm and attract? Does it show Itself in a pleasant face, a cheerful, smile, gentle tones, courteous manners? Is it kindly .and thoughtful for the com,?or* of others, willing to serve, slow to pusH personal claims, quick to sympathize and help? Or is it sour and hard, grim and frowning, dominated by petty gossip and jealousies, self-asserting and domineering—driving away more than It draws? Look into this matter, Carefully consider this question, See whether or not you are properly representing Christ. I,et PS So»p TUU Js So.
