The proprietor of a large New
York hotel furnishes some inter

way in which his hotel is sys

and strangers. Five hundred
envelopes and one thousand
sheets of paper are required
daily. Strangers appear at the1
desk, and with the utmost cool
ness ask for writing materials,
which are usually furnished if
the person is respectable in ap
pearance. It is a common thing to see
strangers enter a hotel writing
room and till their fountain pens
from the ml; bottles. Blotting
paper given away costs ten dol

It is useless to begin the discus
sion of eu$es and effects relative
to cur conutry's danger, the all
absorbing questions with Ameri
cans to-diy;are: "How will it end?
What's going to be the result f Is
the fate of Sodom and Gormorrah
to reach the cities of Amarija 1 Is
nor. this country the land of prom
ise ! Is Amalek to come up and
conquer Israel T" Moses represents
or intimates in this quotation
whatever true prophet of any rep
resents, the manifestation and
wisdom of the Most High f tr the
guidance of man. The elevation
and depre.-sion of Moses' hands on
the famous battle-field with Am
alek as his enemy ca have no
other meaning than the elevatiou
or depression of that Holy Troth
which bis band denoted.
All Bible readers will rememoer
to have read this narrative above
referred to iu which Moses was the
principal factor, for when his hand
were lifted up, the armies of Isreal
prevailed, hut when Lis hands were
let down, 'ha armies of A'ualek
prevailed ami I'.ir hermore, we read
that subsequently when ''Moses'
hands were let down" because of
their eins "Their God gave them
in the hands of the Heathen, and
oi oiy that "ofei ttiem were
Lords over them-"
But when they repented and
turned to God and thus caused the
hands of the Prophet to be raised
up, God saw their adversity, he
heard their complaint, and deliv
ered them from the hands of the
enemy. Is the hand of God short
ened and .8 he not as willing to
assist his children to-day as ever?
He most undoubtedly is.
Instead then of depending alto
gether on human aid for political
safety let us turn our eyes toward
the top ot yonder thill which over
looks this world's contentions and
striff ; for as in the days of old
when Isreal fought with Amalek
there was a high hill uigh unto
and overshadowing the held of
battle, and as on that hill the fate
of the battle was decided, the dis
ordered aud terrible sc-'ue of com
bat of warfare in this lower world,
are still observed and the events
determined by what ia being
transacted at the top of it. But
the personage sitting on the top of
this eminence, which H Mount
Zion is Jesus Christ, th- Sou of God
and Redeemer of the World
Do vou observe the hands of this
Almighty Lord of Zion, how they
alteror.tely rise and fall? And
when they rise, then as in the case
of Moses' hands his people prevail
But .when they iall then Amalek
the entmies of his people, prevail

tion, fully believe Lhat every good
and perfect gift c"mes from above
and spend our time in holding up
the hands of truth and wisdom in
imploring aid from one that is
fully able to help and who is so
willing and so anxious to help our
condition would be inttnately dif
ferent. But if we forger the Mount
of G)d and th.i hands of ihe great
Prophet, and look for peace, for
prosperity, and for security iu low-
r things, independent of those
rusher ones, if we should sit loose
to the obligations ot duly, and
with the same crimiual indifference
dissolve the ties of obedience to
Guil and of allegiecee to our be
loved eountry. and fail to confide
in the proper source the Chief
Executive of tho rjnluerse and let
loose our hold upon his power,
then the hands of the Great Pro
phet must !of necesitv tall down.
And as they fall the enemies of
our wellf ue must prevail and we
will be their conqured victims.
But on the other hand if we take
the word of rod to regulate our
eondtiet and inspire our thoughts
and impulses, if we suffer our un
derstanding to be enlightened and
led b the eternal wisdom of God
rather thau to be darkened and
deluded by 'sophistry, unholy aims
and the uncertainty of untried
means at the instance of political
adulterers, broad mouthed Hand
degenerase office seekers. If we
remember and keep our eye upon
the Hill of Z on and to the man
dates of its fiufahible Captaiu and
not lose sight of th- hand that
wieals the Scepter of universal pow
or and which determines all eeuts
and not forget to render unto
Cieser the things jthat are Cesser's

God's, never losing sight of that
