Feeble Efforts IIve EstahlKsiied a
Great and Noble Work;
Did you ever really think of the
fact that nothing is at first great ?
All great and powerful things have
small beginnings; and because we
see them in all their greatness, we
must not think that they were
A few questions might serve to
set unthoughtful minds to thinking.
Wbat makes the mighty ocean of
waters ? Was the grand canon of
the Colorado always so deep ? Wes
the massive, wide-spreading oak at
first so large? Is the beautiful
snowfall, which so oft wraps mother
earth in a winding sheet, laid all at
once? The answers to these ques
tions are indeed simple. The ocean
in its greatness is supported by the
many rivers. Going back, we find the
rivers are formed by smaller streams
and tne smaller streams coming
from tiny fountains, almost unno
ticed. Long ago, when our earth
was young, in the south western
part of the United State3 our be
loved Chaistian land the great
Surveyor laid out the course of a
river, now known as the Colorado
Ages and ages has it been flowing
over the rocky bed, performing the
duties assigned by an allwise God,
wearing, cottmer a channel ever
deeper and deeper as the years came
and went; nnd now when we go
there, stand and gaze hundred of
feet below us, the natural grandeur
which meets our eves fills us with
the most sublime emotions. Cen
turles ago a small acorn lay on the
around, swelling dav by day; at
last a tiny great leaf came forth.
The eyes of many years saw it
slowly but surely mounting higher
and higher ; now when we go on a
hot summer day, and sit under the
shade of "God's first temples," with
so many songsters above our heaets,
we cannot but exclaim; "How
great a good from such a small be
ginning." In winter we often see,
how falling flake upon flake, the
deepest snow is laid.
Seeing that even in Nature all
great things must first be small,
no one should be discouraged at the
small progress of first attempts to
accomplish some great end but
should always remember that 'tis the
little things that count. A penny
seems a very small amount . but in a
Sunday school where there are just
-i i i u ,
one nunarea pupua euou iiaya
penny and the total amount will be
one dollar If one fails to contrib
ute, it will net be that much. A
smile, a kind word seem to be very
small thing?, yet they may be the
means of encouragicg some one to
be a faithful worker in a noble

more brightly m darkness than in

moral diamonds which adorn j
character's noble crown, shine more

ence of a single deed is wonderful,
either for good or for eyil. Says
Henry Timrod : "Today's most
triyial act may hold the seed of f u
ture fruitfulness or future dearth."
When we see how great the result
of small acts, we should be careful

In the great dram of life, where
every one has a part to play, there
are some seemingly insignificant of
fices to be filled ; but is there really
any part that is useless ? Go l, the
all wise author of life's dram dof-a
not ao superfluous work ; and if
gave any one a small office to fill, J e
will hold him just as respon-ibie
for the fulfillment of it as He will
one who has been favored with a
higher office. Because you cannot
occupy a place in the pulpit, will
you stand back and refus to do
anything for the progress and wel
fare of your nhurch ? Ah ! This
is true of too many today Be not
forgetful cf ihe fact that what good
you can contribute to the cauaes
Christianity no matter bow little
it may seem if you fail to do it, it
will be left undone. Each and
every one has a work to do, either
great or small. Listen to the wore a
of Longfellow, and then see if you
can conscientiously say "My work is
too small, it will add nothing if I
"All are architects of fate,
W orkmg m these walls of time;
Come with massive deecls and great
Others with ornaments of rhme.
Nothing- useless is high or low,
Each thing in its place is best ;
And what seems but idle show,
Strengthens and supports the rest."
There is a great cause in the
world today ; one in which all
Christendom is concerned , one that
must be nourished ; one that lays a
claim on man's better benevolent
nature; one to which the social
world owes a debt of gratitude ; and
that is the Mission cause. There is
a field fiB vast as the world, in which
every man, woman and child may
work; here, indeed, is a place where
small deeds contribute much to a
great cause. It is true that in this
field some rows are longer than
others, Recording to the ability of
the laborer. If you have but a
small work to accomplish in thia
field, do not lie around in the shades
of idleness ; but go and earnestly do
it, lest you go down into th3 grave
with the stamp of God's disapproval
upon you. Why is it that many
people are so careless about this
great cause of salvation ? Thous
ands of missionary addresses haye
been made they haye done a great
deal of good; but it seems that
some still can not be convinced that
'tis a noble, cause. They listen vtry
attentively and think the speech
very fine ; but when the speaker
makes a command or a demand, a
deaf ear is turned. Just at this
point, let the speaker relate a story
of a little bird which was left for a
long time in a cage and finally died
of hunger and thirst. Just think
what agony it suffered, while tho.-;e
outside were flitting from tree to
tree, singing in perfect liberty !
That little story told in a pitiful
tone would touch their sympathies
more than all the doleful stories he
had told of how the poor heathen
were starving for want of that gpir!
itual food and drink necessary to
would almost be m tears ab-jut the
little bird, and wish they hA been
there to have given the pc r little
thing something to eat and drink.
Which is the more valuable, the
life of a little bird, or the soul of
one poor heathen ? This illustra
tion may seem foolish, but neverthe
less 'tis true.
