The following sermon was preached
September 25th, by the Rev. Irving A.
Searlee, in the Christian church on
Oakwood boulevard :
He took Peter and James and John and went
up into a high mountain to pray ; as He prayed
the fashion of His countenance was altered
and His raiment was white and glistening.
Luke is., 28, 39.
Erom the mount of transfiguration
come some of the most precious truths
and practical lessons ot the Christian
system. This sublime scene throws
light upon the doctrine ot the recogni
tion ot friends in the life to come.
" And behold there talked with Him
two men, Moses and Elias, who ap-
iu glory." "While Christ and
,, A.Ua nn thia monil-
tain thefe appear among them these
two visitors from the unseen world.
Moses, the great lawgiver, had been
gone fifteen hundred years, and nine
centuries had rolled away since the
voice of Elias, the prophet, had been
heard by the children of Abraham
Though so long absent from earth, the
lh" di!P,efl are b!e to recognize the
Moses the other as Elias. Not
withstanding they " appeared in glory
they are identified as the two men who
once 6tood foremost ic the Hebrew
uation. The saints of all ages shall
appear in glory," in robes outshining
the sun iu its noodav splendor, but that
doc not imply such a change that
lrieuj cannot recognize friend. It
Mo!-cs and Elias could be recognized
after so long an absence lrom this
world, may you not recognize that
loved one when you enter that lite
to come ?
This transaction teaches that Christ
not Moses, is now to be heard. " And
then came a voico out of the clouds
saying, J Ins is aiy neioveu ron ; near
Him ; and when the voice was parsed
Jesus was found alone." The Hebrew
people had heretofore heard Moses.
lie was their law-giver. The Jew who
wishel to know the will ot God con
cerning hiiri went to Moses for instruct
ion. This was proper. But a new dis
pensation is now to be inaugurated, and
another lawgiver announced to the
world. The voice from the unseen
glories say not " This is Elias, hear
him not " This is Moses, hear him
but theso two characters are removed
from view, and as Jesus remains aloue
in supernatural splendor the heavens
break silence with the ntteraiue " This
is my Beloved Son ; hi-ar llim."
Notwithstanding this p'ain state
ment, it is not uncommon to find relig
ious teachers still calling upon ihe
world to hear Moses instead ot heating
Christ. Those seeking the terms of sal
vation to-day are told to read the Old
Testament. I would in no sense depre
ciate that portion ot God's woid. It is
valuable for its history, for Us types, tor
its delineation ot human character, and
tor its practical lessons. But it is not
that part of revealed truth which tells
you and me in this age of the world
what we mast do to be saved. Christ,
not Moses, now announces the leirus
ot pardon. In the chapter of the last
book of the Old Testament is this
statement : "Bemeber ye the law of
Mcses, My servant, which I command
ed unto him in IIreb for all Israel.''
It was the law ot Moses, not the law
of Christ. It was for all Israel, not for
all the world. The New Testament
contains not the law of Moses, but the
law ot Christ. It is not for all Israel
only, but ! reads, "Go ye unto all the
world and preach the gospel to every

ument upon one siae 01 wnicn are ine
words, "The United States," and upon
the other side the inscription, "The
Dominion of Canada." While they
read "United States'' they know that
they are under the laws of this country,
but alter they have passed along until
they read "The Dominion of Canada"
they know that they are then under
another form of government. Upon
the line between the Old and New
Testament towers as a monument the
cross upon which the Messiah died
Upon one side of that monument is the
woid "yoses;" upon thu other side the
word "Christ." For centuries tbe na
tions coming dowu the stream of time
read "Moses." Then they were under
the law of Moses. But by and by the

ing is eighteen hundreJ and seventy-
nine years behind tbe times. Send not
the inquiring sinner to tbe Old Testa
ment, but to the New.
From this incident we learn that some
are very selfish in religious matters.
"Peter said unto Jesus, Master, it is
good for us to be here, and let us make
three tabernacles, one for Thee, one for
Moses, and one for Elias." Let us put
up three tents, and we six can have a
heaven all to ourselves. Peter forgot
the other disciples, the great world be
neath, and the generations yet to come.
He was willing to have a heaven that
would contain only a half-dozen persous,
provided be oould be one of tbe half-
dozen. How narrow and insignificant
this proposed heaven compared with
the one that tbe Patmos exile saw,
whereiu was gathered a "multitude that
no man could number !" But Peter is
not the only one follower ot Christ who
would be satisfied witb a little three
tent heaven. Call on some people to
help in preaching the gospel, and they
say we expect to reach heaven our
selves, and what care we for the rest of
mankind? In fact, if not protes.edly,
this is the position ot many. Sucb a
spirit is the death warrant of all mission
ary enterprise. It is this spirit tbat
O Lord, bless me and my wife,
Brother John and his wile,
Us tour and no more.
One winter's evening a mother and
four little children, in a sleigh, were
passing through oue ot the dense forests
of Ilussia. They have been visiting a
neighbor, and are returning home. As
night conies on the howling ot wolves
in the distance is heard by the little
party. The hordes are urged forward
at their highest speed. Soou the whole
pack ot the pursuers, gaunt, hungry ar.d
ferocious, have overtaken the fugitives
and are about to leap into the tleiyl
The mother seizes her youngest child
and throws it out into the midst ot the
howling beasts. To kill and devour
the helpless innocent delays the wolves
a tew moments, and the remainder o
the company hurry on. Again tbe'
wolves rurround them, and another
child is thus sacrificed. Another and
another is treated in -the same way until
the mother alone resched her home
It is said that when she related to her
husband the story of her ercspe he
seized an ax and split her head open
asserting that a mother who would save
her own- lite at so great a sacrifice was
not fit to live. This judgment was too

person who, it he is only able to gain
heaven himself, is quite willing that all
the rest ot the world should be exclud
ed? Away with the idea of a three.
We learn from this incident that
some people talc very crazy on the sub-
iect of religion. "Let us snake three
tabernacles, one tor Thee, one tor Moses,
and one for Elias, not knowing what
he said.'' In religions matters how
much there is ot this "not knowing
what he said." There is more down
right nonsense talked regarding reli
gion than concerning any other theme.
You will observe this iu oar Sunday
school literature. Some little boy or
girl is portrayed as an angel, never dis
obeyed parents, never told a lie, never
did anything wrong. If we read fuel
a story iu The New York Ledger we
say it is a lie, and hurl anathema at
Bonner who will persist in publishing
fiction ! When the same . nai rati ve ap
pears in a Sunday-school book we say,
well, it may be a lie, but it is a pious
lie, anyway, and lot it go.
' This tendency is seen in our talk of
special providence. A child is taken
very sick, and the father, instead ot
employing a physician, secures the serv
ices ot a quack. The treatment is op
posed to all medical scierce. The child
dies. The minister standing over the
little coffin, says : "A mysterious pro
vidence hath done this." It is a lie
a quack hath done this.
No other public teacher is permitted
to say so many manifestly absurd things
unchallenged as is the preacher. When
nonsense finds its way in the editorial
column, into our courts, on the plat
form, it meets with exposure. .When
known absurdities come from the sacred
desk decorum forbids a reply. Tbe
congregation say : "Ob, tbat is reli-
eion; let it go." By a tacit under
standing between pulpit and pew, tbe
audience feel in duty bouod to swallow
everything the minister- says. l et its
stop talking on religions themes as did
Peter, "not kuowing what he said."
Learn from this subject tbat tbe !
arousing ot religious emotions is not all
there is of the Christian life. Peter is
in ccstacy amid these surroundings. He
is desirous to remain on the mount for.
ever. He says iu rapture : "It is good
for us to be here." He would rather
remain there than go down from the
mountain and engage in the practical
duties ot life. But his request is denied
him. Sometimes in revival meetings
you have felt the same way. Sermon,
song and prayer have stirred your re-
igious nature to its very depths. You
have said : "Oh, that this meeting
might always continue; oh, that I
might live forever amid theso surround
ings, and in this frame ot mind !" But
religion involves more than that. There
are duties outside ot the revival.
Longfellow, in one ot hie poems pic
tures a youth who in winter seizes a
banner and begins the atceut of a moun
tain. He gradually leaves behind him
the Melds, the workshops, the dwellings,
the neighbors. As he rises higher and
higher he shouts "Excelsior 1" His
voice grows ff.inter and fainter until
heard no more. He has gone so high
that the atmosphere in which he mover
is so thin it will not sustain life, and he
dies. So it is no uncommon thing to
see profebsed Christians taking the ban
ner of the cross in a revival, and crying
"Hallelujah!" "Aiuen!" rise higher
and higher emotionally, until they
leave behind this practical world. They
are too high up to give much attention
to such matters ai telling tbe truth,
keeping their temper, restraining the
tongue from slander, and paying their
debts. They have become too religious
to give attention to these things. But
this class of persons soon reach an altl
tude where-the atmosphere is too thin
lor them to live, and they die.
It is not the emotional, but the prac
tical, part of religion that is most dif
ficult to observe. It is easier to shout
in a revival than to go home and put
up a stove and fit the pipe without at
least thinking swear. It is related of a
deacon in one of the New Jngland
states that he would, -in prayer-meeting,
pronounce the words "blessed Jesus"
in a tone so pathetic that it moved the
congregation to tears. That same man
has recently been arrested for stealing
sheep. It is one thing to say "blessed
Jesus" on Sunday, and another thing
to let the sheep alone on Monday. It
is one thing to be religious on the mount
ot transfiguration, and another thing
not to deny our Lord in the world be
low. I in" tead of this balloon religion let
us have opo that touches the ground.
A Little Heroine.
It was a paradox ot ours that Jessie's
t-trong point was her weakneFS. She
was a pretty little thing, as timid as a
mouse, bhe was atraid ot thunder, of
the dark, of rats and ot spiders. She
was afraid of policemen, of being left
alone, of getting run over, and she was
especially afraid ot firearms in any
Jessie was my younger brother's
wife. Alf used, more than any of as,
to ridicule her timid ness. But I don't
know that we liked her any the less
She was a beautiful, tender-hearted
child, and simplicity itself. No one
could be much annoyed by Jessie. Alf
was sincerly sorry, however, tbat she
was so araid of firearms, for he thought
it well that women should know bow
to use a pistol.
Men, he said, thought it desirable to
learn how to handle one, yet no cftener
called to protect themselves than are
women. He considered it a rare and
valuable accomplishment in a lady.
Yet no urgency oould prevail on Jessie
to touch oue.
"I don't know anything about re
volvers, and I don't want to know, Alt,
dear," she would say appealiugly,
tears of actual distress iu her pleading
eyes when he scolded her, reproaching
her with the usefulness of his lessors.
1 "But I'll get you a pretty little pis
tol, my dear a mere toy," he said.
"Some girls girls of pluck and courage
would be delighted to be taught the
use of, and own a nice one, Jessie."
"I know I am a dreadful coward,
dear, 1 don't wonder tbat you don't
love me, and prefer girls of more spirit,"
whimpered Jessie, beginning to cry.
"Oh,, well, there, there," soothed
And then perhaps he would refrain
from returning to the attack for nearly
a week, tor it was hard for him to give
up anything 1 e had eet bia mind opt n
At length he brongh home a little
revolver and tried to tempt Jessie into
the use of it.
"Please please excuse me, dear !"
she cried so earnestly tbat I pitied and
interceded in her behalf.
"Don't tease her so, Alf. Where is
the need of a woman learning to pro
tect berselt when she has a husband to
"But I should think she would like
to use this !" rejoined Alf, rather fret
fully, as he took-up the elegant little
"As Jessie and I nsver expect to
fight a duel, or shoot a bandit at fitly
paces, we don't see the fascination as
you do," I said, still parrying on J
sies side, for she was looking rather
dismal after her scolding.
Htie loved Alf devotedly, and it
wounded her tender ,eonl to have him
displeased with her. She stood, with
varying color, ; wishing no doubt, tbat
the Bcisy thing did not till her heart
with horrible alarm.
She loved nothing so well as gratify
ins Alf ; nothing depressed her so much
as disappointing him.
"Oh, I wish I wasn't afraid !" she
cried, so pathetically that her husband
look pity on her, and caught her up in
his arms with a kiss.
"Well, Jessie, I won't plague you
any more. I'll try to alwavs be on
hand to do vour fiehtiur for yon," he
He put the pistol on the mantle
piece, warning us uot to touch it, as it
was loaded,, and poor little Jstie's re
lief was evident, as the end of her
trouble in this direction had coma.
All Summer we had expected at
Cyprus Lawn, the visit of a rchool
tricud of hers, and, a few days after
this, a note came from MUs Fairlie
saying she would be with us the follow
As the young lady was a beauty ar.d
heiress, Jessie laughingly warned my
two marriageable brothers who re-
ided with U, to get themselves up in
their most killing st jle.
"For there's nt knowing what may
come ot Lillie's coming dowu here to
visit ua, boys," she Faid. "I shall be
busy with baby, and you will have to
beau her about, you know, Chri.
Carl, I know she will be wild to go out
in your boat after water lilies."
I could not but notice that these
hints were not thrown away upon
them, who solemnly promised to put
ou their war paint and feathers npon
Miss Farlie's arrival.
Jessie's baby was but four months
old a very tiny bit ot wax-work and'
the next morning the young mother
bathed and dressed it carefully, with a
brave show of embroidcrv and blue
sash, and put it in its carriage for
Dorothy, the maid, to wheel np and
down the road while her mistress was
busy withiu doors.
"Don't take the baby out ot sight.
Dorothy," had been Jessie's last com
"She'll tall asleep, the darling, the
fresh air always makes her drowsy, yon

then she'll be just bright from her nap
for Lillie to see first. Xillie used to be
delighted with babies, and I want her
to love mine;
And then Jessie must needs put on
her pink cambric wrapper; "because
Lillie was so fastidious," and when the
house was put in exquisite order, and
