the leaders of the southern people, yet
as I grow older, I have learned not
only to respect and esteem them, but
I love the great qualities' which belong
to my countrymen of the southern
states. They are a noble race. We
may well take pattern trom them in
some of the virtues that give strength
and glory to a free people. Their love
of home; their chivalrous respect for
woman their courage their delicate
sense of honor their constancy wblch
can abide by an opinlm or a purpose
through adversity and prosperity ana
through years and gonoratlons. And
there Is another thing covetous

Tl(t the rrrach:ng or the Coepel is
, the roar le n Evidence of Tai-lteoeh-
lug Mere) Of Hod. . f,
Nkw YonK (:iTY-.-"Povorty and Tiety"
Wat the subject of tins tcrm.m delivered
by tiio Kcv. Jamej Alexander dcnkinii,
pjitor pt lmmanuel (,'ongregotional t'hiircli,
Hia text was chosen from Matthew xii Hi
'in poor have the gcwpcl preached to
them. .. I,-. ,
The woids of our text constitute part iif
the reply of Jesus to John when lie Mint
two of Ii (lineiplei with the anxious ipies
tion, "Art. Thou He that should conio or
do wj look for another" Iu this reply
the Master assumes that John is familiar
With tin. character of the work of the ex
pected One, ao He set before the rnnwen
get" liis Own work aa meeting tlie require
ments. The blind ace, the lame waik. tho
lepers are cleansed, the deaf hear, the dead
are raised up, "the poor have the goepei
preached .to them."
The preaching of the gospel to the poor
may be regarded nt only an evidence of the
far teaching mercy of the great Uod, but
it may nlso be regarded as testifying to the
preparation of the poor for receiving and
Jpreading the good news from God.; If we
benert iu the fitting of means to ends in
the world oi nature, if we are upholders
of the great law of design, may we not
Jtith reasod insist that the Father through
I be war ae pt the ages prepared certain of
the Rons of moil for tlia reception of the
truth. If we concede this we behold in tho
preaching of the gospel to tlie poor" an ar
rangement, of providence, a Ul remhipg
plan of God. " , , ' .. V
The pages of the gospels reveal Jesus ss
the preacher -t ihe poor. The rich Bo re-
?mled as being for eome reason leas fitted
o be chosen as pioneers in the work tt( es
tablishing His kingdom. Of tho rich wen
of the New Testament, not Dives, not the
rich fool, but the young man who cainu to
Jesus with eager inquiry, ma bo regarded
aa typical in the mind of Jesus of the
nosts ot the rich and powerful. - 'iJrrMknic
of biai Jesus said: "JXiajsaiff for a cainelf
to go through theeye of a needle than for
s rich man to wfter into the kingdom nf
God. rnwr-fbis statement we naturally
infer tjrat the ahsence of wealth or noveriv
Is jirist favorable to the reception of shv
tft irutn, to toil entering ef the Kingdom.
Jeans Himself, coming as the founder of
the kingdom of God, chose the inaterinl
Upon which that kingdom shall be built,
He did not breach tn the noor because oth
ers would not hear Him. The inmiential
He could have commanded, strength of
arms He could have enWcd, wealth would
hsve served Him. But He chose, desired,
determined, to preach the gospel to the
poor. Says Dr. Biuhneii, sneaking of the
character of the ministry of Jesus: "Ha
adheres to the poor and makes them I he
object of His ministry. And what is more
peculiar, He visibly has a kind of interest
in their society, which is wanting in that
of the higher elasses, perceiving, apparent
ly, that they have a certain aptitude for
receiving right impressions which the oth
ers hive not. They are not the wise and
prudent, filled with the conceit of learning
tnd station, but they are the ingenuous
abc of poverty, "open to conviction, pre
pared by their liumble lot to receive
thongnts and doctrines in sdvance of their
age." With equal acumen docs this great
rritcr recognise the fundamental anil dis
tinguishing nature, of the c'lotce of Jesus,
Ss contrasted with the teachings ef tho
statesmen and philosophers who had'gona
before Him.- .They began at tho top, He
began at the bottom, and so Ilis work, be
cause it was true to nature, was lasting,
shilling, eternal.
Ths twentieth century finds society di
vided, aa it has alwaya been divided, into
two classes, the rich and the poor. Civili

the poor man He-
cure a just sharvof the good things nl
earth? Is it po.-.ij'b'.c for him to get an ed
iwttion? Will society receive him? And
now, it seems, another question presses
Upon ns. What is the relation between
poverty and piety?
it would seem t.iat tne worin, in an
swering this question, has kist sight of the
teaching and practice of Jesus, fur the con
clusion usually arrived at is tlint tho poor
man is at s disadvantage in hia struggle
for the soul culture which every human
being should desire.- Many listening to
the reasoning of the world, have, beiuso
(if their poverty, surrendered their religion,
deserted th church and -rejected the
Christ, To them the Christian worker Let
tome id seem the. advocate, of impossibili
ties, but this attitude of mind la not con
fined to the simple and unthinking, for ws
are reminded that even thoughtful writers
seem to assume the existence of a natural
hostility between poverty and piety.
Let us keep in mind the attitude of the
Lord Jesus toward the poor ss He delif
ered His rnesuge, and lei Us, remembering
that, ask tiuraeives what that piety Is, the
relation' of which to poverty we are to de
termined' Lot us sak whether there-is in
piety any element to the producing of
which poverty ia hostile, and let ns iin.l,
on the other band, whether it may not lie
possible that poverty assists the soul in its
endeavor to become the possessor of true
piety. i . . ;""''
Piety is not, primarily ."something in the
atmosphere; it is the rather something in
the heart of roan. Among the elements
Which enter into it, a few of the principal
ones may be mentioned; Sensitiveness of
thir.m true, beautiful, good; receptivity,
or t&e ability to appropriate the good that
appeals to the soul; power to apply the
?rmciples of truth; recognition of love as
he great animating, sustaining, Gnd
knowing principle. Let us see whether
poverty may not be an aid to the soul in
its development along the lines indicated,
y We may, I thi -k, claim with justice tli.it
poverty renders the soul supremely cnni
tive to the best things. Poverty is too fre
quently resrnriied as, Bynonymous with pau
perism, and pauperism is the embodiment
Of grim, unfeeling heedlessness. I'aupei-
in is cold, indiiferent, dead, but poverty
Is warm, alert, alive. Poverty nods us

It is the tendency of wealth to be mt'

The great lalior saving ideas ot '.he age
have eome into the minds of the poor; th-V
have been developed amid suffering and
stress, and they have been forced upon
reluctant world by men who ou-ed leore
for progress than for ease, b'o it is with
the men and women who, hungering and
