The Adviamced State of Egyptian Culture
in Moses' Day.
The following ts a synopsis of the ser
mon preached by the Rev. LIddell Sun
day evening, at tho Pre?byterlan church:
Egypt stands out on the page of an
cient history as pre-eminently tho first
nation of the world In education and
culture and' military prowess. And as
we carefully mark tho successive steps
of -her history, so far as that history
is to be known, we may distinctly note
the footprints of Jehovah regulating all
Wer energies and directing all her forc3
up to that prominence and power. We
are told that Egypt was settled by the
immtedlatie descendants of the antedllu
vlans, whose long lives extended, in
most cases over three or four centuries,
enabling them to plan, and give them am
ple time to execute great works, the
very eight of which is the wonder of
the world, and Which verily discourages
their short lived posterity. Their long
evity also enabled them to Increase and
multiply at a rale far exceeding that of
modiern generations. Yet notwithstand
ing, there was always an abundance of
food, for all these multitudes, produced"
by the fertile soli of the valley of the
Nile; Irrigated1 as It Is without labor,
by the natural overflow of that great
river every year. Thus, very ofien, when
all the rert of the world was scorched
-with droug-ht, and the Inhabitants were
suffering from famine, there was always
an abundance of corn in Egypt. When
tho etarved savages of Europe were
1-unting the wild oxen with their flint
hatchets and -arrow heads, and were
glad to shelter themselves from win
ter's frosts and snows in the caves or
the mountains, the Egyptians had thojr
grainarles well filled with wheat and bar
ley and corn, to feed their families and
al) the cattle within their borders.
History also records that they had
among them wise men who were able to
instruct the rising generations regular
ly in ail the arts and sciences, and that
such Instruction was given in the pal
aces and In the various temples and
public places of instruction throughout
tlie country. In the days of Abraham
we find them working In Iron, copper,
and tin, as well as in gold and silver.
On their monuments you may look up
on pictures showing the glass-blowers
at their work, and this too, centuries be
for tho alleged occidental discovery of
glass by the Phoenician sailors who kin
died a fire of dried cea. weed on the
Bands of the seatihore and as it died
down found the alkali and sand had
fused together Into glass. Then aquln
we find that the dead kings, princes and
princesses at burial wero wrapped in
shrouds of cambric or fine linen, so
fine that In one specimen to be seen In
the Berlin museum, there are no leis
than 270 pairs of threads to the square
inch 170 threads of woof. Such produc
tions as this fully attest the very high
perfection of cloth. Thin again we are
told that the masons' marks which are
to be Been on the great pyramids, those
wonders of the world, are nothing ieps
than alphabetic writing, the first, so
far as I can uncertain, to be found
anywhere. And tho papyrus reed, which
today still grows on the tanks of the
river Nile, furnished the world with its
paper and which was used by the Egyp
tians long before tho time of Moses.
Papyri of tlie age of Joseph and one
as old as Abraham, amply show to the
world that there lived a people, long
before the advent of Moses, who were
thoroughly cultivated: writers of poetry,
and prose, history arid Biography, phll
osjphy, law und theology. Hut to take
a step further, the records cf the an
cient civilization of Egypt, are not con
fined to the perishable papyri, for she
has written her r?cordn, besides all
these, on the face of her imperishable
granite with the pen of Iron, and Iheso
stand out before the world for scrutiny.
Then If we turn and look at har archl-
i lecture, we see anotlu-r enduring monu
ment of Egyptian civilization.. Centuries
bnfors the introductl n of the arch Into
Greece, it was used in Egypt in her
buildings, the ciumbling remains of
which still exist. HuSre obelisks carved
lout af sink-to rotn;yi, one of which
stands one. hnndr-.l and twenty-seven
feet In height, proclaim a very high skll-I
In both working end handling stone. Or,
tiki tho great pyramid covering twelve
acres and a half, built of Immense blocks
of stone, many of them welching one
hundred tons each, rising to an elevation
of 4.'0 feet. These exhibit a speclment of
architectural skill fur beyond all that
has been attempted by any of either the
medieval or modern appliances of hy
draulics. We speak of the marvellous
power of our nodern appliances of hy
draulics, but in those ancient monuments
we -have an exhibition of scientific and
mechanical skill, which has so far baf
fled the world.
Still aitaln we have loft to us a won
derfif legacy of art which Indicates a
well-defined culture In painting, and also
In sculpture . It would seem as If this
description of art had become a great
pafslon among the Egyptians. The walls
of their palaces, their temples, their
d. el lings, their tombs, were cover-id
with paintings and sculptures of various
kinds. To such an extent was this the
more sculptures tftun all the rest of the
world put together. The modern trav-
eler tells us. that her very mountains
are honeycombsd with caves and tombs
whose pictured walls proclaim to Ihe
world that the greatest of all tributaries
to the great stream of civilization, ot
both Europe and Asia, took Its rise In
Ancient Egypt: By all her arts nnd
sciences, her public as well as private
Instruction, given to th tavored or her
veople, Egypt was, long before the birth
of Moses, the gneaf University of the
world. Cadmus wentrto Egypt to learn
his A, B. C. Herodotus to Egypt
to learn history. Euclid went to Egypt
to learn geometry, and the twelve books
which he compiled In Alexandria remain
our "college text books to the present
8o history presents ancient Egypt, as
It was in the time of Mo. Thus when
we read that Mivses was learned In all
the wisdom of the Egyptians, we cannot
but conclude that he was cultivated and
very prortcit-nt in all branth-- of educa
tion ar.d that he -was pre-eminently
a nw.i of wis ion. and by his con
nection with the court fha'raoh, a
man of great authority and power.
While all this may be true of Moses,
yet, as I presented to you last Sunday
evening, we find that he chose rather
to suffer affliction with tho people of
God, than to enjoy all the pleasures of
the sinful ways cf the Egyptian court.
Those of you who were present last
Sunday evening, will remember the point
at -which we left the history of Moses.
We mentioned two of the steps which
had been divinely directed in preparing
Mo-sea for the special work that God had
for him to do In coming years, viz.: (1)
The teaching and training in his father's
home, where the prlnclples,of righteous
ness and truth and the unswerving faith
of his fathers in Jehovah were instilled
Into his heart during the years of his
boyhood. (2) And the . training in the
court of Pharaoh under the immediate
oversight of his foster-mother, Pharaoh's
daughter. And that when he was come
to years, or when ho was nigh forty
years cf age, he refused to be called
the son of Pharaoh's daughter, and went
forth to see how his kindred fared In the
midst of their servitude. On that mem
orable visit the whole of his after life
turned. As he passed through the midst
of those Hebrew slaves he espljd one of
tho tyrannical taskmasters treating with
unwarranted cruelty one of his breth
ren. This so aroused his indignation that
he at once took and slew the tyrant on
the spot and hid his body In tho sands.
Before long this came to the ears of
Pharaoh, and the king sought to slay
Moses. The result was that Moses fled
-from Egypt and oame and dwelt in the
land of Mldlan. Here Moses joined him
self to Jethro, who was called the
"Priest of Mldlan." Jethro was one who
still retained within himstelf and sus
tained anicng the people surrounding
him the faith of tho true God. With
Jethro he settled down for the next forty
years. Here began thJe third and final
and most Important perljd of Moses'
preparations. And now for a short time
I wish to direct ;-our attention to this
part of the life of this great man.
Heretofore we have sem nlm only in
the midst of tho great multitude, taken
up with and Interested In all the multi
farious duties of stat, amid luxury, ease,
comfort and pleaaur?, but now we are to
follow limi through the next forty years
in the wilderness of Mldlan, a3 a herds
n an, U-oking after the flocks of .ferhio,
who, after a few years, became his fath
er-in-law. Here. then. In thu wilderness
away ficm all infj bustle of state, in the
quiet solitude of rural life, alone with
cm, as it were, he gains his final equip
ment fi'ie Ihe subsequent forty years'
work God has been Sitting him
to do.
Here let every one of us lear-i this one
or me greatest lessons in all the Chris
tian economy that to b alono with God
is peace, is security, is life. Solitude,
no Christian can do without solitude:
no Christian tai do without the closet.
"Enter into thy closet," says Jesus, "and
tnere commune with thy God." And If
we Christians follow His example, we
will often seek the solitary place to be
alone with God. He often sought the
mountain loneliness, away from, the noise
and bustle of life sj that he irlght be
a;one wltn his Father, and from Him
gather resuscitation and strengtn. And
we can only faintly aivine what those
times of Rolltudo meant to him except
wnen we uo t:ie same thlnj-gct alone
with God.
From the moment that Mosos took that
visit into the camp of his brethren, and
sa.v their condition, it is quite eviden
that ins ?ninu was made up as X3 what
c-ojrse he saould pursue in regard to
them. Ms heart fairly bled with nltv
for them, and ifromi all that followed It
Is quite clear that hi had decided upon
a course of deliverance for them. But
for this he was not reidy, hence he
was driven Into the wilderness. Here we
have ss.en the silent, solemn grandeur
cf nature taught him many needful les
sons. He saw the power, wisdom, love
und faithfulness, of the God in whom
ho put his trust. Herj he had ample
time to perfect all the divinely suggested
plans and elaborate all the details of his
future work which little by little had
been unfolding before him.
There are one or two lessons which we
all may elarn wita great profit:
First We notice that there is a divine
Intent In all the conditions in which God
sees fit to place his people, and especially
those whom He is preparing for future
tpeciul work, as it was with Moses.
Second Learn that God's great design
is that all things shall work together
for the ultimata complete deliverance of
every humon aoul that rests Its case In
His hands.

Speaks of Mr. llauiniond'g Record at
Horn Some Interestinij Facts
Work During: the AVinter.
Mr. Richard Lockey, of Helena, Mont.,
Is in the city, having Just arrived on
his return from a trip to San Francisco,
Mr. Lockey was here last spring, and
had a curiosity to eea what was going
on In Astoria since tho construction or
the railroad had commenced,
To an Astorian representative he said
"I have lived in Helena for 29 years
ond believe In our city and country,
Helena ts now the permanent capital ot
the state and the new military fort will
soon be occupied by United States troops,
Helena now has a population of 20,000
people, and Is constancy improving. We
are some of us looking to the coast for
large business in the near future, and
If things go right in Astoria I expect to
become interested in busings here. From
what I can see and learn you are on the
verge of a great change In your affairs,
and the near future will no doubt see an
increase in industrial and manufacturing
"Mr. Lockey, have you known Mr. A.
B. Hammond, of your state, who Is now
building tho Astoria railroad?"
"I hav- had a warm personal acquaint
ance with Mr. Hammond for 25 years,
though I have not been associated with
him In -business."
"What is Mr. Hammond's reputation
at home for fair dealing and the ful
fillment of his business contracts? Is It
such as would Justify the belief on the
part of our people thiat ho will carry
out the projects he has undertaken
"I do not quite catch the drift of your
question, but I can only answer your
question literally .and Etato that Mr.
Hammond, and his large firm, have a
reputation in Montanx of carrying out
to the letter all of their obligations. They
have ample means with which to do so,
and have never failed to make good
their word in the past."
"Did you see Mr. Hammond as you
passed through Portland, and how did
you find him?"
"Yes, I saw Mr. Hammond yesterday,
and he was feeling bet'or. though he
has been somewhat unl-r the weather.
He Is expecting to return to Astoria in
u few days. He is a very busy man nnd
has many Interests to look after besides
the Astoria road."
' There have been a yfood many remarks
made about Mr. Ham.nond and consid
erable feeling exhibited in certain quar
ters bec-amse he has not proceeded with
the construction of the railroad as rap
idly as It wus thought he would and
muny slurs ind Inuendos have been
thrown but against Mr. Hammond
personally, through some of thee
local papers, and by those who
seem to take delight in calling others
names, .vnd naturally much comment has
been excited. Do you believe from your
talk with Mr. Hamnion I work will
proceed on the road with any la-ge for.e
this winter?"
"While my conversation with Mr. Ham
mond was only that of one friend with
another, and of a most general charac
ter, yet from what he sill he is going
lo push the work with vigor and no
doubt the contracts under consideration
for the ten miles for which bids were
recently called will be let In short order.
You will find one thin,-?, however, that
he will surely conduct his own business
on his own phnj end In his own way.
lie and his firm ulw.iys have done a in
the past and probably will do so now.
Cut there gaoiiM be no occasion for doubt
as to his ultimate succs? or any
fear of failure to carry out his
agreement. He Is not a man to
enter into any scheme until he can
see the end, and he certainly cannot
afford to risk nis business reputation
cn an cnterr-ns-! IUe this I am surpris
ed that any su -h questions h ive b'en
ralseJ, but you know Pi all communities,
particularly rr.c lik-i this, there are' al
ways uios.; who are impatient, but my
firm belief is that when nc does com
mence operations on a lar'-r scale, the
most sanguine of you will be su: prised
by the magnitude at bislness that will
be done In a short sr i-'e of time."
Will you reniain here Ion.;, Mr.
"No; I shall return to Portland Wed
nesday, and from there whl go East.
You will probably see ma here again In
the not distant future."
Interviews with other gentlemen on
the same subject brought out some in
teresting facts. It sterns that the two
principal objects of .Mr. Hammond's trip
to Portland! were to consult with
some of his associates in regard to
tha advisability of raising the grade
of tlie road about throe feet to make it
conform to tho high water mark of theH
lS3t flood, amd to consider certain changes
in theYoung's Bay bridge which ,vilC muke
It more modern and better adapted to
meet the requirements of heavy traffic, ns
well as some minor changes, all of which
were but recently suggested and mrst be
decided before construction can com
mence. A gentleman who is posted eays
that ho thinks It has been decided that
It Is not necessary to change the grade,
but that there will probably be some im
portant changes made in the bridge.
Mr. Hammond will no doubt be pre
pared on his return to definitely settle
rhr, irattcrs and there is little doubt
that a large force of men will be kept
ait work all winter.
A travelling man who was here from
Portlivnd yesterday says that he over
heard a contract between Mr. Hammond
and certain contractors ror tho construc
tion of this ten miles of road, now un.
der consideration In course or dictation.
In a certain Portland lu'wi- nfUoa nrwi
