iBver of lookiuif trlasses spoken of In my text

Bur'ace, pointed out the spots of pollution
on the fane which needed ablution.
t have to sty that this is the only looking.
Class in which a man can see himself as he
Is. There are some mirrors that natter the
features and make you look better than you
are. Then there are other mirrors that dig
tort your features and make you look worse,
than you are. hut I want to tell you that
this lookinar-gh-s of the gospel shows a mam
just as he Is. When the priests entered the
aneient taheruacle, one glance at the
burnished side or this laver showed
them their need or cleansing. So this
gospel shows the soul its need of divine
washing. "All have sinned and come short
o the srlory of God." That is one showinir.
"AM we, like sheep, have gone astray."
That is another showing. "From the
crown or the head to the sole of the foot
there is no health in us." That is another
showing. The world calls these defect?,
imp-rrections, or eccentricities, or erratic
behavior, or "wild oats," or "high living,"
but the gospel calls them sin, transgression,
tilth the abominable thing that Go hates.
It was just fmi glance at that mirror that
nate T'aul cry out, "0!t, wretche 1 roan
that I am, who shall deliver me from
the hod v of tis death?" autthat mile
I) .vid cry out, 'Purge me with hyssop, and
J shall be clean." and that made Jlirtin
Iv'ithercry out, "Oh, ray sins, ray sins !" I
am not talking about had habits. You an t
I .o not need any Bible to tell us that bad
hiMts are wrong, that blasphemy and evil
?P"sicing are wrong. But lam talking of
a sinful nature, the source of all bad thoughts
as well as of all bad actions. The Apostle
Paul calls their roll in the first chapter of
Romans. They are a regiment of death en
canipiug arouud every heart, holding it in a
tvranoy from which nothing but the grace
ot Go I can deliver it.
Here, for instance, is ingratitude. Who
has not heea guilty of that sin? If a mau
hau l us a glass of water we say. "Thank
you." but lor the 10,0(10 mercies that we are
every day receiving froai the hand of God
how little expression of gratitude for thirst
slaked, for hunger fed, for shelter, and suu
shine, and sound sleep, and clothes to wear,
how little thanks! X suppose there are
men fifty years of ago who have never vet
been down on their kuees in thanksgiving to
God for H:s goodness. Besides that ingrati
tude of ourharts there is pride wno has
not felt it? pride that will not submit to
Go 1 ; .hat wants its own way a naturethat
prefers wroug someliuHS iustead of right ;
that prefers to w.illow instead of rise up.
I' you coul i catch a glimpse of your natur
al heart before Go 1, you would cry out in
amaze-pent and alarm. The very first thing
this gospel does is to cut down our pride
ami self sufficiency. If a man does not feel
his loss ' u I rulne 1 condition before God, he
does not w.iut .my gospel. I think the rea
son that there are so few conversions in this
day is because the tendency of the proach
ing is lo make mn believe that they aro
pretty goo 1 anyhow quite clever, only
w inting a little fixing up, a few touches of
divine grace, and then you will ba all right
instead of proclaiming the broad, deep
truth that Payson and Whitefleld thundered
to a race trembling on the verge ot infinite
and eternal disaster. "Now," says some one,
"can this really be tnW Have we all gone
astray? Is there no good in us?" In
Hampton Court I saw a room whre the
four walls were covered witu loolciuj
gluss's and it made no difference which
way you looked you saw yourself. And so it
is in "this gospel of Christ. If you once step
within its full precincts, you will find your
whole character reflected, every feature of
moral deformity, every spot ot moral taint.
If I understand the word of God, its first an
y...nncement is that wc are lost.
Glory be to God, I find that this laver of
looking glasses was filled with fresh water
every morning, and the priest no sooner
looked on its burnished side and saw his
need ot cleausiug than he washed and was
cean -glorious type ot the gospel of my

ow, rnv brother, I do not state this to
put a premium upon great iniquity. I merely
say this to eneou.-age that man. whoever he
wno feejs he i.s so far tone from God that
there is no mercy for him. I want to tell
him tuere is a -oo I chance. Whv. Paul was
a mur lerer. He assisted at the execution
of Stephen, an 1 yet Paul was save'. The
mug tniet did evetvi ung bad. The dvmi?
thief was saved. Richard R axter swore
dreadfully, l-nt the grace or God met him,
and K'chnr1 Baxter was saved.
It is a vast laver. Go an 1 tell everybo ly

frimthe oin:tenliHries an I wash awiy their
cr:me. Let them come up from the alms
Vouses an I wash aw iv their poverty. Let
them come uo from their graves and wash
aw.iv their d'Mn. If there be anyone so
worn out in sin that h cannot get up to the
laver, you jvill take hold of his head and
put vour ar ns arouu I him, and I will taki
ho-'i o' his feet, an I we will plunge hun in
this glorious Bethesla. the vast laver of
God's mercy an I salvatiou. In Solomon's
emple there were ten layers and oue molten
sea this great reservoir in the midst of the
mple filled with water these lavers and
this molten sea adornel with figures of
palm branch aol oxn and lions and
erublm. Thif fountain of God's mercy
a vnster molten se;i than that. It is
r.ot adorned wltn palm branches, hut with
the wool of the cross: not with the
cherubim, but wilh the wings of the Holy
Ghost, and arouud its great rim all the race
mav come and wash in the molten sea.
But I notice also, in regard to this laver of
looking glasses spoken of in the text, that
the washinir in it was imperative and not
optional. When the priests came into the
tabernacle ( vou will find this in the thirtieth
hspter of Exo.lus), Godtells them that they
mus, wash mthat laver or die. Itn priest
might have said : "Can't I wash elsewhere?
I washed ia the laver at home, and now you
want me to wash here." God says : '"Xo
matter 'whether or not you have washed
before. Wash in this laver or die."
But," say.s the priest, "there is water just
s cl.m as this. Why won't that do?"
Wash here," says God, "or die." So it is
with the gospel of Christ, It is imp-jrative.
There is only this alternative keep our sins
and pensb, or wash them away and live.
But. S'ivs someone. "Wny could not God
have made more ways to heaven than one?"
I do not know but He could have made half
a dozen. I know He made but one. You
sav, "Why not have a long Hue of boats
running from here to heaven?" I cannot
say. but I simply know that there is
only one boat. You say, "Are there not
trees as luxuriant as that on Calvary, more
luxuriant, for that had neither buds nor
blossoms, it was stripped and barked?'
Yes. ves. there have beea taller trees than
thiit and more luxuriant, but the only path
to heaven is under that oae tree. Instead
of quhrreling; because there are not more
ways, let us be thankful to God there Is
one, one name given unto men whereby we
cau be saved, one laver in which all the
world may wash. So you see what a radiant
go.spel this Is I preach. I do not know how
a man can stand stolidly and present it, for
it is such an exhuarant gospel. It is not-a
mere whim or caprice. It is life or death.
It is heaven or hell. You come before your
child, and you have a present in your hand.
You put your haads behial your baok and
say : "Which haad will you take? In one
hand there is a treasure ; ia the other
there is not." The child blindly chooses.
But God our Father does not do that
way with us. He spreads out both hands
and says : "Now this shall be very plain.
Ia that hand are pardon and peace and life
and the treasures of heaven. Ia that hand
are punishment and sorrow and woe.
Choose, choose for yourselves !" "He that
believeth and is baptised shall be saved, but
he that believeth not shall be damned."
An artist ia his dreams saw such a splendid

he awoke and seize! his pencil and said,

something of the beauty of that great sacri

up from the pasture aad lay sleeping ia

had represented it a most i.uggestive
thing. Then I thought how tho war be

instead of the annouacemeat, "The
wages of sin is death," there came tho
words. "My peace I give unto thee," and
amid the batteries ot the law that had once

nearly nine years, and less than two months

a burden. Yet such was the cas-, a?eording
to the statements made by Mrs. Archer and

The Freight Became Alive.
Two weeks ago I saw a car load of
chickens in Alabama," said T. L.
Hollinshead. "Ihe remarkable thing
about it was that the chickens were
all from one day to three clays old.
Among the freight in a local car was a
basket of eggs which had, iu some
way, been overlooked, and the car re
mained on the side track for a nam -ber
of days. It was then picked up as
an empty and taken iuto Selma,
where, upon opening it, a number of
small chickens were seen toddliug
about the floor; in fact, enough to be
called a car load. In very hot weather
it is not infreipaentto find eggs on the
point of hatching. Every com mission
merchant has hael such experiences,
but the Alabama incident is tho only
one of that kind I ever heard of."
