"Other sheep I have, which are not of this

erty that we may fence oil nnd have all to our
selves. It is not a king's park st which we
look through a barred gateway, wishing that
we might go In nud see the deer and tho

In my boyhood, next to tho country school
house, there was an orchard of apples, owned
by a very lame man, who, although there were
apples In the place perpetually -decaying and
by scores and scores of bushels, nover would
allow any of us to touch the fruit. One day,
in the sinfulness of a nature inherited from
our firct parents, who were ruined by the
same temptation, some of us Invaded that
orchard; but soon retreated, for the man came
alter us at a speed reckless of making his
lameness wore, and cried out; "Hoys, drop
those apples, or I'll set the dog on you!"
CltlltSTIANlTr roil ALL MUX,
Well, my friends, there aro Christian men
who have tho church under, severe guard.
There Is fruit in this orchard for thu whole
world, but they have a rough and unsympa
thetic way of accosting outsiders, a though
they had. no business here, though the Lord
wants them all to come and take tho largest
imdtherlpest fruit on the premises. Have
you an Idea that becnuso you were baptized
at thirteen months of age,' and because you
have all your life been under hallowed In
fluences, Hint therefore you have a right to
one whole side of the Lord's table, spreading
yourself out and taking itn tho entire room
J tell you no. You will hare to haul in your
tlhows, for I liall to-day place on either side
of you those whom you never expected to hit
tlicic; for, as Christ said to tho Jews long
ago, bo He says to you uml to inn; "Other
sheep I have, which are not of this fold."
MacDonald, the Scotchman, lias four or five
dozen iiead of sheep. Some of them are
browsing on the heather, some of them are
lying down under the trees, tome of them aro
in his yard; thoy nro scattered around in
eight or ten different plnces. Cameron, his
neighbor, comes over and says: "I see von
hnve thirty sheep; I have Just counted them."
"No," nayi MacDonald, 'I have a great mammon-
sheep than that Some are here anil
ionic aro elsewhere. They aro scattered all
nround about. 1 have four or live thousand
in my flocks. Othur Micep I have, which are
uot in this fold."
SO MANY CIIKIHTIAN FOMI9.
So Christ says to ui: Hero U a knot of
Christians and there Is n knot of Christians,
but they make up a small part ot the flock.
Hero Is the Episcopal fold, the Methodist fold,
the Lutheran fold, the Comrreiratloiiul fold.

washing; and so they am scatteicd all over,
anil we come with our statistics, and suv there
nre so many thousand of the Lord's sheep; but
Christ rcsiionds; "No, no; you have not seen
more thnn one out of a thousand of my lloek.

First In the first plnce I remark that the
heavenly shepherd will llud inniiv of his bheep
among the nou -church goers. There aie con
gregations w here they aro ail Christians, and
tliey seem to be completely finished, and they
remind one of the bkeleton leaves which by
chemical preparation have had all thu green

left cold and white and delicate, iiothlug
wanting but a glass caso to put over them.
OATIIKItlNO UECltLTrs KVKUY Wlllilllt.
The minister of ChrUt has nothing to do
with such Christian) but to come once u week,
and with an ostrich feather dust oil the accu
mulation ot the labt six days, leaving them
bright mid crystalline as before. Hut the oth
er kind of a church is an armoiy with perpetu
al sound of drum and fife, gatlirriug icertilts
for the Lord of hosts. We say to every appli
cant: "Do you want to be on God' side, the
safe and happy slduf If so, come iu thu armory
and get equipped. Here M a bath In whtcii to

on your feet Here Is a helmet for your brow.
Hero is a breast platu for your heart. Here Is
a tword for your rlsrht arm, anil yonder is the
battle field. Acipiit ynurselvcb like men."
There are some here who 'y: "I stopped
going to chuica ten or twenty years ago."
My brother, is It not strnugu that you cliould
le the tlrat man I should taU to to-day' I
know all your case; I know It very well. You
have not been accustomed to coino Into a re
ligion assembly, but I have a surprising an
ftouneemvnt to make to von. You are going
to become ono of thu Lord's sheep. "01"
you y, "It is hnoslllo; you don't know how
jar I am from uuvthiug of that kind." I
know all about it. I have wandered up and
down the world, and I understand your cas.
J hare a still more startling uuuouucemeut to
make In regard to you. You are not only
going to become one of the Lord's sheet), but
jou will become oue to-day. You will go
from this service to talk with some one about
your soul. People of Uod. pray for that maul

8AYINO SIlll'WnBGKKII POVIA.
Vben the Atlantic went Ui pieces on Mars
Rock ami tho people clambered up on the
leach, why did not that heroic minister ot
the Gospel of whom we have all read, sit
down and take care of thosu men on the
beteh, wrapping them Iu tlanut-ls, kindling
ire for thrm, seeing that they got plenty of
food? Ah, he knew that there were others
who would do that! He says; "Yonder are
men and women freezing Iu the rigging of
that wreck. Iloys, launch the boat!" And
now I see the oar-blades lend under the
strong pull, hut beforo they reached the
rigging a women wo frozen and dead. She
was washed off. ooor thlnirl Hut he tars:

day who are safe on the shore of God's
inrrey, but I see there are mhiic who are
ireezlng in the rigging or sin, and sur
rounded bv perilous storms. l'ull awav,
my lads! Let us reach them. Alas, one Is
washed off and gone! There Is one more to
he saved. Let us tmsh out for that one.
"Clutch the rope. O dying man! Clutch It

Christ commands his ministers to be fisher
men, and when I go tWhlng I do not want to
go among other cliurehei. " but into tho wide
world; not sitting along a small creek where
eight or ten other iersons are sitting With
hook and line, hut, like the llsherinen of New
foundland, (ailing oil and dioppliu; net away
outside, forty or fifty miles from (hore. Yes,
there are non-church goers hem who will come
In. Next Sabbath they will again tie In the
religious service. They aro this moment be
ing swept into Christian associations. Their
voice will ho heard in public prayer. They
will die in peace, their lied surrounded by
Christian sympathies, and be carried out by
devout men to lie buried, and on their grave
be chiseled the words: "l'reelous In the bight
of the Lord Is the death of His saints." And
on resin rectlon dar you uill get up with tho
dear children you have already buried, and
with your Christian parents who have already
won the palm. And all that grand anil
glorious history bcrlns now. "Other sheep I
have which are not of this fold."
Second I remark again: The heavenly
shepherd Is going to find a great many of his
sheep among those who are positive rejectors
ot Christianity. I do not know how you caino
to reject Christianity. It niny have been
through bearing ineodoie ParKcr preach, or
through reading Kenan's "Life of Jesus," or
throuirh the Infidel talk of some young man
in your store. It may have been through tho
trickery ot some professed Christian man who
disgusted you with religion. I do not ask vou
how you became so; but you frankly tell me
tint you no reject ii.
THVINO Till: VIKTl'ES Ol' ItELIOION.
You do not bellevo that Christ Is a divine
being, although you admit that He was a very
good man. ou do not believe that the lllble
was inspired of God, although you think that
there are homo very fine things iu It. You be
lieve that the Scriptural description of lvicn
was only an allegory. There are fifty things
mat t nenevo mai you no not
believe. And yet you arc an accommo
dating mail. livervnouy mat Knows you
says that of you. If 1 thould ask you to do a
kindness for me, or If any one else should ask
ol you a Kindness, you would do it. xsow 1
have a kindness to ask of you to-day. It Is
something that will cost you nothing and will
five me irreat delight 1 want vou hv cxnorl-
meut. to try the power of Christ's religion. If
I should come to you, and you were very sick,
and doctors had given vou un and said there
was no chalice for you, and 1 should take out a
little bottle and say: "Here is a mcdlelro
that will euro you; ft lias cured fifty people,
and it will cure you," you would say: "I nave
no confidence In It." 1 would say: "Won't
you take It to oblige mef" ""Well," you
would say, "If It's any J.iceoinmodatlon to you
I'll take It." My friend, will jou he Jilht as
accommodating in matters of religion
ltr.i.viNo on Tin: divinr i-iivsiuian.
There are some of you who have found nut
that this world can not satisfy your soul.
You are like the man who told me after the
servleo was over: "I have tried this world
and I found It an Insufficient portion. Tell
me of fomcthliig better." You liuve come to
that. You are sick for the need of dlvlnu
medicament. Now I come and tell you of a
physician who will cure you, who has cured
hifudrcds ami hundred who were, sick as
you arc. "Oh," you say. "I have no confi
dence In Illinl" Hut will you not try Himf
Accommodate me In this matter; oblige inu in
this matter; just try Hint. lam very certain
He will cure you. You reply: "I have no
special confidence In Hun; but if you ask mu
as a matter ot accommodation, introduce
Him." So 1 introduce- Hlm-Christ, the
physician who has cured more blind eyes, and
liualcd inoro ghastly wounds, and hound up
more broken hearts, than all tho doctors slnco
the time of Ksculnplus,
That divine physician Is here. Are you not
ready to try lllin? Will you not, ns a pure
matter of experiment, state your case Inifore
lllranow! Hold nothing back fiom Him. If
you can not pray, It you do not know how to
pray any oilier way, say: "O Lord Jrsus
Christ, tills is a strange thing for mu to dol I
know nothing about the formulas of religion.
These Christian people have been talking so
long about what Thou canst do for me, 1 am
ready to do wnaievcr i noil coininamiesi me io

niandest me to take. If there bo any power In
religion, as these people eay, let ma have tho
advantage of It"

you try that experiment? I do not, nt
tills point of my discourse, say that tliero is
anything In religion; hut I simply say, try it
try it Do not take my counsel or the counsel
of nny clergyman, If you despise clergymen,
l'crhaps we may ho talking professionally;
perhaps we may bo prejudiced iu tho matter;
perhaps wo may be hypocritical iu the utter
ances; perhaps our advice is not worth taking.
Then take the counsel of bourn very restieeta
hie lariuen as John Milton, tho poet; at Will
iam "Wllberforcc, the statesman; as Isaac
Newton, the astronomer; as Itobcrt Hojie,
tho philosopher; ns Locke, tho metaphysi
cian. They never preached or pretended to
in-each; nud yet putting down, one his tele
scope and another Ills parliamentary scroll,
ami another his electrician's wire, theV all de
clare the adupjedness of Christ's religion to
the wants and trouble of the world. If you
will not take tho recommendation of ministers
of the goseI, then take the lecommetiilatlon
of hlglily respectable laymen. 0, men skepti
cal and struck through with unrest I would
sou not like to have nunc of the peace which
broods over our souls to-day 1 know all
aluiut your doubts. I have been through them
all. I have gono through all tho curriculum.
I have doubted w hether there Is a God, whether
Chrlkt is God. 1 have doubted whether tho
lilble wm true. 1 have doubted the Immortal
ity of the soul. 1 hare doubted my own ex
istence. Ihavo doubted everything; and yet,
out of that hot dcocrt of doubt, I hnve como
Into the broad, luxuriant, siiushlny laud of
Gospel hope, nnd peace, and comfort: so I
hare confidence In preaching to you ami ask
ilia; you to come in.
No I'KAcri rou Tint iNrinnr-
Howercr often you may have spoken
against the lilblr, or however much you
may hare caricatured religion, step ashore
from that rocking and tumultuous fca.
if you go nway adhering to your infideli
ties, iou will uot sleep ono wink to-night
You do not want tour children to coum up
with your skepticism. Yon can uot afford
to die In that midnight darkness, can you?
If you do not bellevo In anything elsu you
bfllere In love a father's love, u mother's
lore, a wife's lore, a child's love. Thru Jet
me trll you that God loves you inoro than
them all. O, you must come In. You will
come In. The great heart of Christ aches
to hare you come In, and Jesus this very
moment whether you tit or stand looks
Into your eyes and says: "Other thcop 1
hare, which are not of this fold."
Third Again I remark, that the heavenly
shepherd Is going to find a great many Miccp
among thoe who have been Cung ot evil
habit It makts mo mad to see Christian
people give up a prodigal as Intl. Thero are
those lio talk as though the grace ot God
were a chain of forty or titty Hubs, and after
they had run out there was nothing to touch
a very bad case. If they were hunting and
go. oil ttie tracx ol me ueer tliey would looc
inng.-r among the banks nnd the bushes for
the lost gam- than they have been looking for
that Imt soul. People' tell us that If n mart
has dcl.rliiiii tremens twice he can not be
reclaimed, that after n woman has fallen front
her Intciiritv rhe can not be restored. The
lllble has distinctly intimated that the Lord
Almighty Is icady to pardon four hundred
nnd ninety times; "that is seventy tunes seven.
noli s mi:i:cy to Tin: i.owkst.
Theie ate men before the tlironeof God who
have wallowed in every kind of sin; but, saved
tiy ttie grace ot .lesus and wnsued in ill
blood, they stand there radiant now. There?
aie thor-e "who plumrcd In the Very lowest heli
ot abomliiutou, who for the tenth time have
been lilted up, and llualiy. liy ttie grace o
God, they btand In Heaven gloriously rescued,
by ttie grace promised to the chief of sluners
1 want to tell you that Goil loves to take hold
of a very bad case. When the chinch cast
you oil, and when the cliihroom casts you off,
and when boeiety casts you oil, when busuics
associates easts you olf, and when father
easts jou oil, and when mother casts you oil,
and when everybody easts you off, your first
cry for help will send the eternal God clean
down to the ditch of your buffering and
shame. The Good Templars can uot save,
you, although they are a grand institu
tion. The ' Sons of Temperance can
not save vou, although they aie mighty for
good. Signing the teniperancu pledge can
not save you nltlioug 1 bellevo in it. Nothing
but the grace ot the Eternal God can save you,
and that will it you will throw yourself on ta
it. A man said to mc: "I'tiicss God helps
me I can not be delivered. 1 have tried ev
erything, sir; but now I have got into the hab
