Luke xix, 10: 'For the son of

when the Prince of Wales came
over on a visit to this country
some vears ago there was a trc
mentions commotion to know
what he came for. Some said
it was to study the Republic;
others thought it might mean
war, and there were all sorts of
rumors snd conjectures, but the
Prince went back without tell

Now, we know what Christ
came here for. He proved it

Those are just the kind of peo

meeting. Come on, you friends
that can't find the Lord, ami let
me get hold of your hand! The
spirit of God will come you i:i
a thousand different ways if
you're only ready to receive
Him. "Why, I remember being
told of a young man who wa
l-atling ii dii-sipated life in
IWldyii, Xew York. He came
home to his room one night, and
looking up he caught sight of
his mother's picture hanging on
the wall. Her sad eyes follow
ed him all around the room.
Whichever way he turned, those
ees were looking at him. He
couldn't stand it! lie got up
and turned the picture face to
'the wall. Do you know what
that was?" shouted the evange
list as he stamped on the plat

"Just then Jesus comes up
the road, surrounded by His
deeiples. '"Who is that?' shouts
the blind man; 'who is that?'
And the beciples rebuke him,
and the crowd would have push
otl him to one side, but he's not
g'jiusr to lose this irreat
of having his sight restored,
and he shoves his way through
the crowd and cries. 'Oh, thou
son of David, have mercy on
me.. And Jesus commanded
that ho be brought near to Ilim.
And when the' had brought
him, He spat on the ground
and anointed the blind

you to-night, my friends, if you
will only have it.
""Well, the beggar started
down the road, and lie thought
to himself. 'I guess I'll go
home and sec my wife.' That
was perfectly noatusal, for he
had been born blind, and he
wanted to see what kind of a
looking wife he had. So, as he
was going on his way, a rich
publican named Zaccheus came
up to him and said: 'Hello!
"Why, how is this, I thought
you were blind?' So I was, but

"Where is this prophet? I'd

"There was such a crowd
around the Savior that Zacche

Him, so he ran up the road a
bit and climbed up a sycamore
treee. Jesus came up to the
place ami stopped. Then He
called out, 'Zaccheus, come
down. 1 must abide in thy
house to-day.' Zaccheus prob
ably thought to himself, how
in the world did He know my
name?' He didn't stop to think
that Jesus had invited Himself
to his house, but he came right
down and look Him to his
house and received him joyful

Then Mr. Moody toid how he
had been asked to preach to the
prisoners in the tombs in Kew
York. After he had addressed
them, locked up in their cells as
they were, he went from cell to
celf to see them ami ask them
how it was with them. In the
first cell were four men playing
caids. "Pve an idea they Were
