AT BAPTIST CHOEOH v r

' THE I RCKKN NEST, or, GOD'S
: I GUIDANCE. ,
Dent. 32 obspter 11 end 12 : verse..
' Aa an eagle stirretb up hr nest,
finttereth over young, snreadeth
abroad her wings, maketh them, bear
eth them on her wlnga. o th Lord
aloue did . lead him and there was no
trange god with him,"
Our text take ua high up tb moun
tain aide to atand beside aa eagle'
neet. The lyoung eagles are atrong
and old enough to fly but the cling to
the old fain il ilex neat with Ita aoant
shelter but they muet .learn th joys of
flight, so the mother eaile stirs n n
the nsat and drives th m iorth. What
joy Is theirs when Jonoe they bare
learned to fly.
This ia a bsantiful parable of human
life. We all cling to the old neat, th
old horn where we were born, tb
dear protection of atrong heart. We
ay let na atay here forever, do not
ape k to a of that great outer world
or of it opportonlti. "But th
great love of God ha provided some
ihlug batter for ua." In onr text we
have tbe key to Jacob's troubled life.
How Uud stirred op his horn sad bs
bed to go to bis uncles and agaia whan
st bis ancls be was led forth for bs

country. ,.; .
I How God break a np oar nest. 3S
He stirs op our nst by making a
dlaaallansd with ourselves. By tick
nee God etlra op our nest and make
us mar loving and thoughtful of oth
era and atira np feelings that sre only
bora ol suffering. BydaethH some
Into out homsrud take away a loved
one that we may lead out In a new eer
vies for God.' How by-th death of
Senator Stanford's eon th heart of the
father was led out to lay th found
tloa and build one ' of tte greatest
Universities of the world. f.;:v -
. Again God stirs np our neat by. His
ordlurry providence. How tbe young
men and women are tied away ' from
onr homes for college and buaineu
and make hlt for themselves. . Yea,
in many and atrong ways' God lead
us. Often w fl d fault like Joseph'
brothers but ia tbe answer of Joseph
we have tba key "God meant It for
goodto hrin-to paassa it la this day
to save muoh people alive." ' -i "V

IV. As a obnreb God Is stirring np
. We are apt to be at ease in Zioo. A

RUB BE R
Witii Life in. it
When yon buy anythiug in rubber goods tit pays to
get the kind with rubber. in it. Many makers of rnb
ber goods are pliant to the demana for cheapness, and
hence the market is flooded with inferior goods that
hardly resemble rubber. Quality counts in this line,
and we are careful to buy of maketa who have a rep
utation for turning out high grade goods only. You
can have confidence in the rubber goods we offer, no
matter how low tba pnoe is. ,
