Hero It I'ntilV Itinerary. Ho tvnin travel

and limtiltoil, nml tlio moro good ho did tho
woreo tho world trontcd him. Hut ho (vent
right on. Now ho propose to go to Jcrusn
lent nml snyst "After that 1 must nlso see
Rome,'' Why did ho wnnt to visit this won
derful city In which 1 nm today permitted to
standi "To preach tho Uoxpol," you ntuwor.
No douht of It, but Micro woro other reasons
why ho wanted toxoo Homo. A mnii of Pnul's
Intelligence nud cliunlo tnsto hnd fifty other
rensoni for wnntlng to soo It. Your Colos
seum was nt thnt tlmo In procuw of erection,
and ho wanted to soo It. Tho Forum was
even thon nn old structuro, nnd tho chxpiout
npostlo wanted to soo that building, In which
oloquonco hnd ko ofton thundorod nud wept.
Over tho Applnu Wny tho trluuiphnl proces
sions hnd already marched for hundreds of
yearn, mid ho wanted to boo that. Tho temple
of Hnturn was nlreody nn nntlijulty, and he
wanted to roo thnt. Tho nrchltecturo of tho
world renowned city, ho wnutnd to koo thnt.
Tho places associated with tho triumphs, tho
cruelties, tho disasters, tho warn, tho military
genius, tho oetlo nml tho rhetorical fnmo of
tills great city, ho wanted to mmi thoui. A
man llko Paul, so mnny sided, o sympathetic,
to cmotlonnl, so full of analogy, could not
bavo Ixmmi Imllfforent to tho antiquities nnd
tho splendors which movo ovcry rightly
organiicd human being. And with what
thrill of Interest ho walked those, street, thoso
only, who for tho tint tlmo llko ourselves
enter Homo, can tmaglno. If tho Inhabitants
of nil Christendom woro gnthorod into on
plain, and it woro put to them which two
citlos thoy would abovo all others wish to sco,
tho vast majority of them would voto Jeru-
salem nnd Rome, Bo wo can understand
something of tho roconl of my text audita
surroundings when it nays, Paul purKod In
tho spirit when ho lied p-vtsed through Maco
donla and Aehala to go to Jerusalem, Niylngi
"After that 1 must nlso soo Homo." As soino
of you nro nwnro, with my family, nml only
for tho purpose of what wo can learn nnd tho
good wu can got, 1 nm on tho wny to Pales
tine, Bluco leaving Brooklyn, Now York, this
Is tho first placo wo ha vo stopped. Intermedi
ate citlos nro nttractlvo, but wohnvo visited
them In other years, nud wo hastened on, for
I said bof oro starting thnt whllo 1 was going to
Jerusalem I must also soo Homo. Why do 1
want to kco itf Docauso I wnnt, by visiting
regions associated with tho great Apostlo to
tho Gentiles, to havo my faith In Christianity
confirmed. There nro thoso who will go
through largo exicudlturo to havo their faith
weakened. In my natlvo land I have known
persons of very limited means to uy llfty
cents or n dollar to hoar n lecturer prove thnt
our Christian religion is n myth, a dream, a
cheat, ii He, On tho contrary, I will give all
the thousands of ilollnrx that this Jou"ney of
my family will cost, to havo additional evi
dencu that our Christian religion is nn nu
then t lento. I grandeur, a solemn, a Joyous, a
rapturous, u stupendous, a magnificent fact.
Bo I want to soo Homo, I wnnt you to show
mo tho places connected with npxtollc min
istry I havo hoard that in your city and
amid Its surroundings, apostles sulTcrcd and
died for ChrU'.'s sa":o. My common senso
tolls mo that people do not dio for tho sako of
a falsehood. Thoy tuny prnctico a deception
for purposes of gain, but put tho sword to
tholr heart, or nrrnugo tho halter around
tbelr nock, or kindlo tho flro around their
foot, and they would say my life Is worth
moro than anything I can gain by losing It,
I bear you havo In this city Paul's dungeon.
Bhow it to ma I must soo Homo also. Whllo
I am Interested In this city bocauso of her
rulers or her cltizons who oro mighty In his
tory for vlrtuo or vico or talonU Romulus,
and Caligula, nnd Cinclnnatus, and
Vespasian, and Coriolanus, and Bru
tus, And a hundred others whoso
names aro bright with an exceeding bright
ness, or black with tho doopost dye most of
all nm I Interested In this city because, tho
preacher of Mars Hill, and tho dullor of
Agrlppa, and tho horo of tho sbipwrockod
ressel In the breakers of Mollta, and tho man
wbo bold higher than any ono that tho world
ever saw tho torch of Resurrection, lived,
and proachod, and was massacred here. Bhow

I must also soo Homo.

But ray text suggests that in Paul tbore
was the Inquisitive and curious spirit. Hud
my toxt only meant that bo wanted to preach
here be would bavo said so. Indeed, In an
other place, be declared: "I am ready to
preach tho Gospel to you wbo are at Homo
also." But my text suggests a sight seeing.
This man who bad been under Dr. Gamaliel
had no lack of phraseology , and was used to
saying exactly what bo meant, and bo saldt
"I must also see Romo.'' There Is such a
thing as Christian curiosity. Paul bad It,
and somo of us ha vo it. About othor pooplo't
business I havo'nb curiosity. About all that
can confirm my faith In tho Christian re
ligion and tho world's salvation and tho soul's
future happiness, I am full of an all absorb
ing, all compelling curiosity, Paul had
a 'great curiosity about tho next world, and
so have wo, 1 hopo somo day, by tho graco
of God, to go over and soo for myself;
but not now. No well man, no prospered
man, I think, wants to go now. But tho
time will como, I think, when 1 shall go over.
I want to boo what they do there, nnd I wnnt
to too how thoy do it, I do not wnnt to bo
looking through tho gates ajar forovor. 1
want them to swing wldo open. There nro
ten thousand things I want explainod about
you, about myself, about tho government of
tho world, about God, abont everything. Wo
start in a plain (ath of what wo know, and
In a mluuto como up against a high wall of
what wo do not kuow. 1 wonder now it
looks over there. Somebody tells mo it is
llko a paved city paVed with gold; and an
other man tells me it is like a fountain, and
It Is llko a tree, and It Is llko a triumphal pro
cession; and tho noxt man I moot tolls mo it
Is all figurative. I really want to know after
the body Is resurrected what they wear and
what thoy eat; nnd I havo an Immeasurable
curiosity to kuow .what It is, nnd how
it is, and whore it is. Columbus
risked his lite to find tho American
continent, nnd shall wo shuddor to go nut on
a voyngo of discovery which shall reveal n

"Mow, In ten minutes 1 will know tho great
secret." Ono minute nfter tho vital functions

Friends, tho exit from this world, or death, If
you ploaso to Call It, to tho Christian is glo
rious explanation. It Is demonstration. It
Is illumination. It Is sunburst. It Is
tho opening of nil tho windows. It Is shut
ting up tho catechism of doubt, nnd tho
unrolling of nil tho scrolls of positive nnd no
curate Information. Instead of standing nt
tho foot of tho lnddor nnd looking up, it Is
standing nt tho top of tho lnddor nnd looking
down. It Is the Inst mystery tnken out of
botnny, and geology, nirl nstronomy, nnd
theology. Oh, will it not bo grand to have
nil questions answered? Tlio perpctunlly re
curring Interrogation point changed for tho
mark of exclamation. All riddles sol v oil.
Who will fenr to go out on that discovery,
whon all tho questions aro to bo decided
which wo havo Ixtcn discussing all our lives?
Who shall not clap his hands In tho anticipa
tion of that blessed country, If It bo no bettor
than through holy curiosity? As this Paul
of my toxt did not suppress his curiosity, we
ncod not suppress ours. Yes, I havo nn un
limited curiosity nbout nil religious things,
and ns this city of Homo was so Intimately
conuoctod with npostollo times, tho Incidents
of which emphasize, and explain nud nugmuut
tho Christian religion, you will not tnko It as

TIIK PAULINE INTELLECT.
Auothor reason for our visit to this city is
that wo want to nco the places where tho
mightiest Intellects and tho greatest natures
wrought for our Christian religion. Wo
havo been told in America by somo ncoplo of
swollen heads that tho Christian religion is a
pusillanimous thing, good for children under
Bovcu yearn of ago and small bralnod people,
but not for tho Intelligent ami swarthy mind
ed. Wo havo hoard of our Constantino, the
mighty, who (minted his army to tho cross,
saying, "By this conquer." If thero bo any
thing hero connected with bis reign, or his
military history, show It to us. Tho might
iest intellect of the ages was the author of
my text, nud If for tho Christian religion bo
was willing to labor and suffer and dio, there
must bo something exaltod and subllmo and
tremendous in it; and show mo every placo
bo visited, and show mo, If you can, whore bo
was tried, and which of your roads loads out
to Ostla, that 1 may too whero ho wont out
to die. Wo expect beforo wo finish this
Journey to see Lake Galileo and the
places whore Simon Peter and Andrew fished,
and perhaps wo may drop a net or a hook and
lino into thoso waters ourselves, but when
following the track of thoso lesser apostles 1
will loam quite another lesson. 1 want
whllo in this city of Romo to study tho relig
ion of tho brainiest of tho apostles. I want
to follow, us far us we can trace it, tlio track
of this great Intellect of my text who wanted
to soo Romo also. He was a logician, ho was
a motapbytician, ho was an all conquering
orator, ho was a poet of tho highest type. Ho
bad a naturo that could swamp tbo loading
men of bis own day, and, hurled against the
Sanhedrim, ho made It tremble. Ho learned
all be could get In tbo school of bis native
village; then ho had gone to a higher school,
and thero bad mastered tho Qrook and tho He
brow and perfected himself in belles lettres,
until, In after years, ho' astounded the Cro
taus, and tho Corinthians, aud tho Athenians,
by quotations from tbelr own authors. 1
bavo nover found anything in Carlylo,
or Ooetho, or Herbert Spencer that
could comparo In strength or beauty
with Paul's epistles. 1 do not think
thero Id anything In the writings of Sir
William Hamilton that shows such men
tal discipline as you find In Paul's argument
about Justification and resurrection. I havo
not found anything In Milton liner in the
way of imagination than 1 can find In Paul's
Illustrations drawn from tho amphitheatre.
Thoro was nothing In Robert Emmet plead
ing for his llfo, or In Edmuud Burko arraign
lng Warren Hastings in Westminster hall,
that compared with tbo scono in tbo court
room, whon, beforo robod officials, Paul
bowed nud legnn his speech, saying: "1
think myself happy, King Agrlppa, becuuso
I .shall answer for myself this day," I re
peat, that a religion that can capturo a man
llko that must havo some power in it. It is
tlmo our wiseacres stopped talking as though
all tin brain of tbo world wero opposed to
Christianity. Whero Paul leads, we can af
ford to follow 1 am glad to know that
Christ has, in tho different ages of the
world, had In his disclpleship a Mozart
and a Handel in muslo; a Raphael and
a Reynolds lu painting; au Angelo and
a Cauovo in sculpture; a Hush and a Har
vey In medicine; n Orotlus and a Washing
ton iu statesmanship; n Blackstono, n Mar
shall and a Kent in the law. Aud tho tlmo
will como when the religion of Christ will
conquer nil tho observatories and universi
ties, aud philosophy will, through her tolo
scopo, behold tho morning star of Jesus, aud
iu her laliorntory sou that "all things work
togother for good'," and witli her geological
hammer discern tho "Rock of Ages.'' Oh,
Instead of cowering nud shlverlir? when the
