encouraged her with tho suggestion thut
probably she had bcon raised up of God for
that pccullnr ihImIoh. "Who knoweth
whether thou art come to tho kingdom for
Mch a time as this?" Esther had her God
appointed work; you and 1 have num. It
la tny business to tell you whut.Uyloof
people we ought to be In order thut wo
may meet tho demand of tho iiu In 'vhlcli
UodhafCAji our lot. If you lmu como
expecting to hear nbstrnctlomi discussed
or dry technicalities of religion glorified,
rou have come to the wrong place; but If
fou really would like to know whatihln
W has a right to expect of you im Chris
tian men and women, thou I am ready In
Ibe Lord's name to look you In tho face.
When two armlet have rushed Into bat
ile the ofllcor of either army do not want
philosophical illtcusilon about tho chemi
cal properties of human blood or the mv
tare of gunpowder, They want soma 0110
to man the batteries and swab out tho
lans. And now, when all the forces of
dht.afid, darkness,, of heaven and bell,
uni plunged Into the fight, It Is no timo
give ourselVtia to the definition's and
formulas 'and technicalities and' conven
ionalltles of religion. What we want Is
practical, earnest, concentrated, enthusias
tic and triumphant help. What we need
.a the east you In Wisconsin need.
Id the first place, In order to meet the
(facial demand of this age, you need to be
aa unmistakably aggresslvo Christian. Of
talt and half Christians we do not want
wy more. Tho church of Jesus Christ
will be better without ten thousand of
Aem. They are tho chief obstacle to the
Aarch's advancement. I am speaking of
Mother kind of Christian. All the appli
ances (or your becoming an earnest Chris
tian are at your hand, and there Is a straight
ath for you Into the broad daylight of
tod's forgiveness. You may have como
acre today the bondsmen of the world, aud
fat before you go out of those doors' you
ay become the princes of the Lord God
Almighty. You know what excitement
Aere la In this country when a foreign
arlnce cornea to our shores. Why? Because
II la expected that some day he will sit
apon a throne. But what Is all that honor
xmpared with the honor to which God
salla you to be sons and daughters of the
Lord Almighty; yea, to be queens and
kings unto Godl "They shall reign with
hjm forever and forever."

.But, tny friends, you need not bo aggres
sive Christians, and not llko those persons
who spend their lives In hugging their
bid himself In a dark closet? A great deal
of piety of the day Is too exclusive. It
hides Itself. It needs more fresh air, mora
outdoor exercise. There are many Chris
Uaaawho are. giving their entire life to
eslt examination. They aro feeling their
pulses to see what is the condition of thulr
spiritual health. How long would u man
Sve robust physical health It he kept nil
a dap and weeks aqd, mouths and years
st bis life feeling his pulse Instead 6? going
rat into active, earnest, everyday work?
I was onos amid the wonderful, bewitch
keg cactus growths of North Carolina. I
tever was more bewildered with the beauty
of flowers, aud yet when I would take up
on of these cactuses and pull the leaves
apart, the beauty was) all gone. You could
hardly teU that It had ever been a lower.
Aftd therty are; great Many Christina peo
la tat thai daf Juef pulling apart, their
CMatiaa' experiences to ace what there Is
la them, and there is nothing attractive
WCt. This atyle or self examination Is a
damage instead of au advantage to their
Christian character. I remember when I
was a boy 1 used to have u small piece in
the garden that I called my own, and I
planted core there, and every few days I
would pull it up to see how fast it was
growing. Now, there are a great many
Christian people In this day whoso self ex
amination merely amounts to the pulling
ap of that which they only yesterday or
the day before planted.
Oh, my f rlendsl if you want to have a stal
wart Christian character, plant It right out
of doors In the great Held of Christian use
fulness, and though storms may come
apon It, and though the hot sun of trial
mar T to consume It, it will thrive satil
It becomes a great tree,' In which1 the fowls
of baaven may have their habitation. I
hawo mo patfenoa with these flowerpot
Christians .They heep. themselves. auder
shelter, and all their Christian experience
1b a small, exclusive circle, when they
ought to plant It In the great garden of the
Lord, so that the whole atmosphere could
bo aromatic with their Christian useful
ness. What we want In the church of God
iaVnore brawn of piety.
The century plant is wonderfully sug
gestive aud wonderfully beaittful, but 1
never look at It without thinking or It
parsimony. It let whole generations go
by before It puts forth one blossom; so I
have really more heartfelt admiration
when I see the dewy tears in the blue evro
of the violets, for they come every spring
My Christian friends, time Is going by so
ralpdly that we .cannot afford to be Idle.

Again, if you wnnt to bo qualified to

stick too much to things because they are

projects, now theories of government, nuw

But, on the other hand, do not ndhore to

And so also tho work of Jesus Chrixt

"But," nay thotpeople, "the world la go

the fortresses of sin are never to bo taken
In that way. If they are taken for God it
