while we sit down in sweet solitude to
In a small island off the const I once
passed a Sabbath in delightful solitudo,
for I had resolved that I would have one
day of entire quiet before I entered upon
autumnal work. I thought to have spent
the day in laving out plans for Christian
work, but instead of that it became n
clay of tender reminiscence I reviewed
my pastorate. I shook hands with an old
departed friend, whom- I shall greet
again -when the curtains of life are lift
ed. The days of my boyhood came back,
and I wns 10 years of ago, and I was 8,
and I was 5. There was but one house
on the island, and yet from Sabbath day
break, when tho bird chant woke mo,
until the evening melted into the bay,
from shore to shore there were 10,000
memories, and tho groves were a-hum
with voices that had long ago ceased.
YOUTH AND AGE.
Youth is apt too much to spend all its
time in looking forward. Old age is apt
too much to spend all its time in looking
backward. People in midlife and on tho
npex look both ways. It would bo well
for us, I think, however, to spend more
time in reminiscence. By the constitu
tion of our nature we spend most of tho
time looking forward. And the vast
majority of people live not so much in
the present as in the future. I find that
you mean to make a reputation. You
mean to establish yourself, and the ad
vantages that you expect to achieve ab
sorb a great deal of your time. But 1
see no barm in this if it does not wake
you discontented with the present or
disqualify you for existing duties.
It is a useful thing sometimes to look
back and to see the dangers we haYO es
caped, and to see the sorrows we have
suffered", and the trials and wanderings
of our earthly pilgrimage, and to sum
up our enjoyments. I mean today,.so
far as God may help me, to stir up your
memory of the past, so that in the re
view you may bo encouraged and hum
bled and urged to pray.
There is a chapel in Florence with a
fresco by Quido. It was covered up
with two inches of stucco until our
American and European artists went
there and after long toil removed the
covering and retraced the fresco. And I
am aware that the memory of the past,
with many of you, is all covered up with
10,000 obliterations, and I propose this
morning, so far as tho Lord may help
me, to take away the covering, that the
old picture may shine out again.
I want to bind in one sheaf all your
past advantages, and I want to bind in
another sheaf all your past adversities.
It is a precious harvest, and 1 must be
cautious how I swing tho scythe.
Among the greatest advantages of
your past life was an early home and its
surroundings. The bad men of the day,
for tho most part, dip their heated pas
sions out of the boiling spring of an un
happy home. "We are not surprised that
Byron's heart was a concentration of
sin when we hear that his mother was
abandoned and that she made sport of
his infirmity and often called him "the
lame brat." He who has vicious parents
has to fight every inch of his way if he
would maintain his integrity and at last
reach the home of the good in heaven.
Perhaps your early home was in the
city. It may have been in the days
when Canal street, New York, was far
uptown. That old house in the city
may have been demolished or changed
Into stores, and it seemed like sacrilege
to you, for there was more meaning in
that plain house, in that small house,
than there is in a granite mansion or a
turreted cathedral. Looking back this
morning, you see it as though it were
yesterday the sitting room, where the
loved ones sat by the plain lamplight,
the mother at tho evening stand, the'
brothers and sisters, perhaps long ago
gathered into the skies, then plotting
mischief on the floor or under the table;
your father with a firm. voice command
ing silence, that lasted half a minute.
HAPPY CHILDHOOD DAYS.
Ob, those were good dayBl If you had
your foot hurt, your mother always had
a soothing salve to heal it. If you were
wronged in the street, your father" was
always ready to protect you. The year
was one round of frolic and mirth. Your
greatest trouble was an April shower,
more Bunshino than shower. Toa heart
had not been ransacked by troubles, nor
bad sickness broken it, and no lamb had
a warmer sheepfold than tho home in
which vonr childhood nestled.
Perhaps you were brought npin the J
country. You stand now toaay in mem
, ory under the old tree. You clubbed it
for fruit that was not quite ripe because
you could not wait any longer. You
bear the brook rumbling along over the
yebbles. Yon step again Into the furrow
where your father in his shirt sleevea
ehouted to tho lazy oxen. You frighten
the swallows from the rafters of the
ban. and take just onj egg and rilence

garden walk and the forgetmenots play

The father, who used to come In sun
burned from the fields and sit down on
thodoorsill and wipo tho sweat from
his brow, may have gone to his everlast
ing rest. Tho mother, who used to sit at
tho door a littlo'bent over, cap and spec

vicissitudes of many years, may have
put down her gray head on the pillow in
the valley, but forget that home you

I bring to mind another passage in tho
history of your lifeThe day came when
you setup your own household. The
days passed along in quiet blessedness.
You twain sat at the table morning and
night and talked oyer your plans for tho
fnture. The most insignificant affair in
your lifo became the subject of mutual
consultation and advisement. You were
so happy you felt you never could be any
OUT OF THE CLOUD.
One day a daik cloud hovered over
your dwelling, and it got darker and
darker. But out of that cloud the shin
ing messenger of God descended to in
carnate an immortal spirit. Two little
feet started on an eternal journey, and
you were to lead them. A gem to flash
in heaven's coronet, and you to polish it.
Eternal ages of light and darkness watch
ing tho starting out of a newly created
You rejoiced and you trembled at the
responsibility that in your possession an
immortal treasure was placed. You
prayed and rejoiced, and wept and won
dered, and prayed and rejoiced, and
wept and wondered. You were earnest
in supplication that you might lead it
through life into tho kingdom of God.
There was a tremor in your earnestness.
There-was a double interest about that
home. There was an additional interest
why you Bhould stay there and be faith
full and when in a few months your
houso was filled with the music of the
child's laughter .you were struck
through with the fact that you .had a
Have you kept that vow? Havo you
neglected any of these duties? Is your
home as much to you as.it used to be?
Have those anticipations been gratified?
God help you today in your solemn rem
iniscence nnd let his mercy fall upon
your soul if your kindness has been 11
requited! God havo mercy on the par
ent on the wrinkles of whose face is writ
ten the story of a child's sinl God have
mercy on the mother who In addition to
her other pangs has the pang of a child's
iniquity! Oh, there are many, many sad
sounds in this sad world, but the saddest
sound that is over heard is the breaking
of a mother's heart! Are there, any here
who remember that in that home they
were unfaithful? Aro there those who
wandered off from that early home and 1
left tho mother to die with a broken
heart? Oh, I stir that reminiscence to
day! I find another point in your life his
tory. You found one day you were in
the wrong road; you. could not sleep at
night. There was just one word that
seemed to sob through your banking
house, or through your office, or your
shop, or your bedroom, and that word
was "eternity." You said: "I am not
ready for it. O God, havo mercy!" The
Lord heard. Peace came to your heart.
You remember how your hand trembled
as you took the cup of the holy com
munion. You remember the old minis
ter who consecrated it, attd you remem
ber tho church officials who carried it
through tho aisle. You remember the
old peoplo who at tho close of tho servico
took your hand in theirs in congratulat
ing sympathy, as much as to say, "Wel
como home, you lost prodigal," and
though thoso hands have all withered
away that communion Sabbath is resur
rected today. It Is resurrected with all
its prayers and songs and tears and ser
mons and transfiguration. Have you
kept those vows? Have you been a back
slider? God help you! This day kneel
at the foot of mercy and start again for
heaven. Start today as you started then.
I rouse your soul by that reminiscence.
But I must not spend any more of my
time in going over the advantages of
your life. I just put them all in one
great sheaf, and I bind them up in your
memory with one loud harvest song,
euch as reapers sing. Praise the Lord,
ye blood bought mortala on earth I Praise
the Lord, ye crownod spirits of heaven!
Bnt some of you have not always had
a smooth life. Some of you are now in
thehadow. Othorabad their troubles
years aire: you are a mere wreck of what
tou once were. I must gather np the
sorrows of your past life, but how shall
I do it? You Bay that la impossible, as
you have had so many troubles and ad
versUies. Then I will jnst take two, the
first trouble and the last trouble.
Aawhen yos are walking along the
street and there has been inulo in the
distance you unconsciously fad your
selves keeping step to the music, so when
you started life your very life was mu
sical tlmebeat. The air was full of joy
and hilarity. With the bright, clear oar,
you made the boat skip. You went on,
and life grew brighter, until after
awhile suddenly a voice from heaven

But one day there arose from tho
heavens a chill blast that Bwopt over the
bedroom, and instantly all tho light
went out, nnd there was darkness
thick, murky, Impenetrable, shuddering
darkness. But God did not leavo you
there. Mercy spoke. As you wero ab.out
to put that cup to your lips God said,
"Let it pass," and forthwith, as by tho
hand of angels, another cup was put into
your hands. It was tho cup of God's
consolation. And as you have some
times lifted tho head of a wounded sol
dier and poured wine into his lips, so
God puts his left arm under your head,
and with his right hand ho pours into
your lips tho wine of his comfort and
his consolation, and you looked at the
empty cradle and looked at your broken
heart, and you looked at the Lord's chas
tisement, and you said, "Even bo, Fa
ther, for bo it seemeth good in thy
Ah, it is your first trouble. How did
you get over it? God comforted you.
You have been a betterrnan over sinco.
You have been a better woman oVer
since. In the jar of the closing gate of
the sepulcher you heard the clanging of
tho opening gate of heaven, and you felt
an irresistible drawing heavenward.
You have been purer and holier of heart
ever since that night when the little ono
for the last time put its arms around
your neck and said: "Good night, papa.
Good night, mamma. Meet mo in heav
en." But I must come on down to your later
sorrow. What was it? Perhaps it was
sickness. Tho child's tread on the stair
or the tick of the. watch on the Btand dis
turbs you. Through the long, weary days
you counted the figures on the carpet or
tho flowers In the wall paper. Oh, 'the
weariness and exhaustiont Oh.thoburn
ingpangsl Would God It were morn
ing, would God it were night, were your
frequent cry. But you are better per
haps even well. Have you thanked God
that today you can come out in tho fresh
air; that you are in this place tb hear
God's "name, and to sing God's praiso,
and to implore God's help, and to ask
God's forgiveness? Bless tho Lord who
healeth all our diseases and redcemoth
our lives from destruction.
PerhapB your last sorrow was a finan
cial embarrassment. I congratulate
some of you on your lucrativo -.ofession
or occupation, on ornato apparel, on a
commodious residence everything you
nut your band to seems to turn to gold
But there aro .others of you who aro liko
the ship on which Paul sailed whero two
seas met, and you are broken by the vio
lence of the waves. By an unadvised
indorsement, or by a conjunction of un
foreseen events, or by fire or storm, or a
senseless panic, you have been flung
headlong, -and where you once dispensed
great charities now you have hard work
to make the two ends meet.
TI1ANK OOD FOE PB03FEKITY.
Have you forgotten to thank God for
your days of prosperity, ana that through
your trials some of you havo made in
vestments which will contiune after the
lost bank of this world has exploded and
the silver and gold are molten in fires of
a burning world? Havo you, amid all
your losses and discouragements, forgot
that there was bread on your table this
morning and that there shall bo a shel
ter for your head from the storm, and
there Is air for your lungs and blood for
your heart and light for your eye and a
glad and glorious and triumphant reli
gion for your soul?
Perhaps your last trouble was a be
reavement. That heart which in child
hood was your refuge, the parental
heart, and which has been a sourco of
the quickest sympathy ever sinco, has
suddenly "become sHent forever. And

noyance and without deliberation you

An Improved Wood l'aremenL
The jarrah and the karri, two hard
woods native to Australia, aro being
largely used for paving carriago ways In
England, and 'i&pocially in London,
where the heavy traffic Is most trying to
tho lasting qualities of pavements. The
wholo breadth of the road is first cov
ered with a layer of cement concrete in
stead of sand 0 inches deop and arched
to the necessary convexity. On the top
of this tho wooden blocks are laid. The
slipperiness after showers whioh the
hardness of tho wood entails is remedied
by a sprinkling of sand, and in dry weath
er the horse shod with a flat shoe finds
as good footing as on other pavements.
The Australian woods aro bound to
last four times as long as tho wood hero
tof oro -used. Tho first cost of paving a
Btreot with these blocks in Melbourne
ranges from $3.10 per square yard for
karri to $3.40 for jarrah, which does
not include tho concrete or tho cost of
excavation, laying nnd grouting. If
transportation were cheap enough, tho
sdtno pavements could bo laid down in
this country for not much more, and it
is suggested that most of vessels taking
American product to Australia would
be glad to got cargoes of karri or jarrah

About a year ago a great meteor fell
at or near Tablo mountain. Tho fall of
tho visitor from unknown spheres and
the consternation it Caused among those
who were witnesses wero told in agraphio
manner to a reporter of this paper by
Professor GoorgoH. Stout, superintend
ont of schools, and created wide interest.
Searching parties were organized, and
several scientific gentlemen came here to
get if possible a piece of the meteor. Mr.
Stout received letters from all over the
United States and even from Europe.
But despite strenuous effort no trace of
tho mysterious mass conld be found.
The other day, however, Charles E.
Bloomfleld, who resides some miles to
tho west of where this -meteor waa sup
posed to have struck, discovered what u
undoubtedly a fragment of the same.
He -was plowing his fieldwhcn the im
plement turned up a mineral mase which
Mr. Bloomfleld Immediately recognized
as not being of the ordinary character.
He brought the same to Oroville, and it

weighs 60 pounds, Is of a flint or brown

Is remarkably heavy. Oroville (Pa.)
