I know there are sorrows mid there an shin
and there are sufferings all around about lis;
lull its In some l.l'ter. i old whiter day, when
we nre threshing our arms mound us to keep
our thumbs fiom freelug, we think of the
warm spilngday that will after awhile conic;
or in the dark winter night we look up and
cc the northern lights, the windows of heav
en illuminated by some iri cat vii ton --just so
we Ii ok up from' t lie night of sulTcilng and
sorrow and wretchedness In ouriilles, and wo
see :t light streaming through from the other
side, and we know we are on the way to morn
ing nioie than that, on the wa t,i "u morn
lim without clouds."
Iwani jouto uuderl.tiul, all you who are
tolling for Christ, that the castles of slu are
all going lo be eaptincd. The vb'iory for
Chilst in these big towns Is going lo be so
complete that not a man on eailb, or an angel
In heaven, or a devil in hell will dNpulo It.
How do I know I 1 know just .i ccrtninlt as
(iod lues and that this Is ho! tiuth. The' old
Hlble N full of ll. If the nation Is to be saved,
of coin e, all the elites are to be saved. It
makes a great dllteieiiee with oii aud with
me whether we are tolling on ton aid a defeat
or toiling on towaid a virion.
Now In Ibis niunielpnl elcv.ill.Mi of which I
seak I have to remark there will be greater
linanclid prospciitv tliali our citl.'s have ever
ecu. t'oine people seem to have a moi bid Idea
of the millennium, and they think when the
better time comes to our cities uml the world,
jvople will give their tune up to psalm singing
and the lelaling of their ieligioii experience,
and as all social Hie will lie purihVd there will
lie no hilurllv. and as all business will b puri
lled llieie will be no enterprise. There Is no
giound for such an absurd anticipation.
i'homimn or Tin: ooop iimi:.
In the time of which I speak, w here now one
fortune is mad , there will he a hundred for
tunes made. We all know business prosperity
dcicnds Umiii coulldi nee between man and

peak and all double dealing, all disiioncsty
and all fraud tit u gone out of commercial cir
cles, thorough coiilidenee uiu be established,
nnd thcie will be bettir business done, and
larger fortunes giilheicd and mightier suc
cesses achieved. The gieat business disasters
of this country have, come fiom tho work of
godless speculators and Infamous .-.lock gum
