and the music hi a darusge rather than
Another obstacle in the advance
ment of thle art has been the errrou
out notion that this part of the service
oould be conducted by delegation.
Churches) have said: "Oh, what an
easy time we shall have. The minister
will do the preaching, the choir will do
the singing and we willhsve nothlug
. to do," And you know as well as
that there are a great multitude of
churchee all through this land, where
the people are not expected to sing, the
whole work to done by delegation of
four or six or ten persons and the audi
nee are silent.
In such a church In Byrsoust an old
elder preeisted to singing, and so the
church appointed a committee to go
and ask the equtre if he would not stop.
You know that in a greet multitude of
churches the choir ar expected to do
all the tinging, and the gnat mass of
the people art expected to be silent,
and If you utter your voice you are In
terfereing. There they stand, the four,
With opera glass dangling st their side,
singing "Bock of Ages, Cleft for Me,"
with the saute spirit that the night be
fore, on the stage, they took their part
in the "Grand Duchess" or "Don Uto
ALL SHOULD UNO WHO CAN.
My Christian friends, have we a
right to delegate to others the discharge
of this duty which God demands of us?
Suppose that four wood thrushes
should propose to do all the singing
some bright day when the woods are
ringing with bird voices. It Is decided
that four wood thrushes shall do all
the singing of the forest. Let all the
other voices keep silent. How beau
tifully the four warble! It is really
flue music. But how long will you
keep the forest still! Why, Christ
would come into that forest and look
up as be looked through the olives, and
he would wave his band and ssy, ".Let
everything that hath breath praise the
Lord," and, keeping time with the
stroke ot Innumerable wings, there
would be five thousand bird voices
leaping Into the harmony.
Suppose this delegation of musical
performers were tried in heaven; sup
pose that four choice spirits should try
to do the singing of the upper temple.
Hush, now, thrones and dominions and
principalities. David! be still, though
you were "the sweet singer of Israel."
Paul! keep quiet, though you have
miiu ta lh nrawn of retalcinir. Rich
ard Baxter! keep still, though this is
the "Balot's everlasting Best" Four
spirits now, do all the singing. But
how long would heaven be quiet? How
long? "Halleluiah!" would cry some
glorified Methodist from under the
altar. "Praise the Lord!" would sing
the martyrs from among the thrones.
"Thanks be unto Uod who iriveth us
the victory F great multitude of re
deemed spirit would cry.
Myriads ot voices coming Into the
harmony, and the one hundred and
forty and four thousand breaking forth
into one acclamation. Stop that loud
singing! Stop! Ob, no, they cannot
hear me. You might as well try to
drown the thunder of the sky, or beat
back the roar of the sea, for every soul
in heaven has resolved to do its own
singing. Alas! that we should have
tried on earth that which they canoot
do in heaven, and instead of Joining all
our voices In the praise of the most
high Ood, delegating perhaps to un
consecrated men and women this most
solemn and moot delightful service,
Nw, la this church, we have re
solved upon the plan of conducting the
music by organ and oornet. We do it
for two reasons one Is that by throw
lng tbe whole responsibility opou the
mass of the people, making the great
multitude the choir, we might rouse
more heartiness. Tbe congregation
coming on the Sabbath day feel that
they cannot delegate this part of the
great service to anyone else, and so
they themselves assume it, We have
had a glorious congregational singing
here. People have come many miles
to hear It They are not sure about the
preaching, but they can always depend
on the singing. We have beard the
sound coming up like "the voice of
many waters," but it will be done at
better rate after awhile, when we
shall realize tho height and the depth,
and tbe immensity of thle privilege.
I forgot to state the other reason why
, we adopted this plau. That is, we do
not want any choir quarreli, You
know very well that in scores of
churches there has been perpetual con
tentlon In that direction. The only
church fight that ever occurred under
my ministry was over a melodeon, In
my nrst settlement. Have you never
beeu in church on the Sabbath day and
heard the choir sing, and you . said,
' "That Is splendid music." The next
Sabbath, you were in that church, and
1L .. -1 . .1. .... . m.
mere was no uuuir at an, wnyi me
leader was mad, or his assistants ' were
mad, or they were all mad together.
Home of the choirs are made up of our
bent Ohrlntltiri people. Some of the
wtirmcst friends I have ever had have
stood up In them, Sabbath after i Sab
hath, conscientiously and successfully
lending the praises of Ood. .Rut tbe
iimjority nf the choirs throughout the
- land ure not mdo up of Christian peo
ple, and three-fourths of the church
the organ loft t
and say nine-tenths.
A great many of our churches are dy
ing of choirs.
We want to rouse all our families to
the duty of sacred song. We want
each family of our congregation to be a
singing school. Childish petulance,
obduracy and Intractability would be
soothed If we had more singing tu the
household, and then our little ones
would be prepared for the great con
gregation on the Sabbath day, their
voice uniting with our voices la the
praises of the Lord.
After t ahower there are scows of
streams Outcome dowu the mountain
side with voices rippling and stlvsry,
pouring Into oue river and then rolling
in united strength to the sea. Bo I
would have all the families lu our
church send forth the voice of prayer
and praise, pouring It into the great
tide of public worship that rolls ou and
on to empty Into the great, wide heart
of Ood. Never can we have ourohuwh
slug as It ought until our families slug
at they ought
There will be t great revolution on
this sudject in all our churches. Ood
will eome dowu by his spirit and rouse
up the old hymns and tunes that have
not been more than half awake sluce
the time of our grandfathers, The
silent pews luthe church will break
forth Into music, tad when the con
ductor takes his place ou the Sabbath
day there will be t great host of volet
rushlnglnto the harmony. My Christ
Ian frleuds, If we have no taste for this
service on earth, what will we do In
heaven, where they all sing, and sing
I want to rouse you to t unaulmlty
in Christian song that has never yet
been exhibited. Come now I clear
your throats and get ready for this
duty or you will never hear the end of
this. I shall never target hearing a
Frenchman sing the "Marseillaise" ou
the Champs Elyseea, Paris, Just before
the battle of Sedan la 1870. I never
saw eueh enthusiasm before or sluce.
As be sang that national air, oh! how
the Frenchman shouted! Have you
ever In any English assemblage heard
the band play "Ood Save the Queen?"
If you have, you know something
about tbe enthusiasm of t national air.
Now, I tell you that these songs we
sing Sabbath after Sabbath are the
national airs of Jesus Christ and of tbe
kingdom of heaven, and If you do nut
learn to sing them here, bow do you
everexpeet to sing the songs of Moses
and the Lamb? I should not be sur
prised at all If some of the best anthems
of heaven were made op oftomeofthe
beet songs of earth. May Ood Increase
our reverence for Christian psalmody,
and keep us from disgracing it by our
Indifference and frivolity. Wbeu
Cromwell's army went Into battle, he
stood at the head of them one day, aud
gave out the long meter doxology to
the tune of the "Old Hundredth," and
that great host, company by company,
regiment by regiment, battalion by
battalion, Joined In the doxology
Prate Ood from whom all bMotnt 80 tr,

FrmiM FsUwr, Ho aod Holy Ubmu
And while they sang they marched,
and while tbey marched they fought,
and while tbey fought they got the
victory. Oh, men and women of Jesus
Christ, let us go Into all our conflicts
singing the pralsee of Ood, and then
Instead of falling back, as we often do,
from defeat to defeat, we will be
marching on from victory to victory.
Glory to the Father and to the Bon
and to the Holy Gbot as It was In the
beginning, Is now and ever ahull be,
world without end. Amen.
There nre many little things
about weddings that people inquire
about says tho lAtdM Horn Jour
md, Tbe bride writes a personal
note of thanks for every gift re
ceived, whether it be a great one or
a little one, and.ifuhe cannot do this
before the ceremony, she does it
after the bridal trip. In the church
the bridegroom's family and friends
ait at the right of the alter being
on the bridegroom's right hand,
while those of the bride are placed
on the left at the bride's left. The
bridegroom does not pay for any
thing connected with the wedding
unless he should cIiooko to send bou
quota to the bridemaida and, of
course, the bride, and presents and
boutonniers to bis best man and the
ushers. A widow removes her first
wedding ring at her second iimr
fiage, and does not assume it again,
The engagment ring is taken trom
the third linger of the left IiiiikI nnd
worn afterward as a gnard to the
wedding. It is not considered good
taste to cat the finger out of the
glove for assuming the ring. Sun
