Sum enough, although nil earth nnd hell arose to keep iiliu down, he la todny cmpnlnced, outbrotied mid con Bated king of earth and king of heaven. 'To this end wns I born."

AN UNANSWKIIADLK QUESTION. There li too much divine skill shown In the physical, mental and moral constitu tion of the ordinary human being to sup pose thnt he waa constructed without any divine purpose, if you take mo out on omevAst plain and show mo a pillared temple surmounted by a dome llko St, Peter's, and having a floor of precious tones, And arches thnt must havo taxed the brain of the greatest drnftsmnn to de sign, and walls scrolled and niched and paneled and wainscoted and painted, and I hould Ask you wlmt this building was Sat up for, And you answered, "For noth ig at all," how could I believe your And It ia Impossible for mo to bellovo that any ordinary human being who has In bis muscular, nervoua and cerebral or ganisation more wonders than Christopher Wren lifted in St. Paul's, or Phidias ever chiseled on the Acropolis, and built in such s way that it shall last long after St. Paul's cathedral la as much a ruin as tho Parthe non thst such a being was constructed for no purpose, and to executo no mission, and without any divine intention toward soma end. The object of this sermon is to kelp you to find out what you are mads tor, and help you And your sphere and as sist you into that condition where you can My with certainty And emphasis and en thusiasm and triumph. "To this end was I bora." THINGS YOU ARK NOT ItKSrONSIDLK FOIt. First, I discharge you from all responsi bility for most of your environments. You are not responsible for your parentage or grandparentage. You aro not responsible for any of the cranks that may hnvo lived in your ancestral line, and who a hundred years before yon were born may hnvo lived s style of Ufa that more or less affects you today. You Are not responsible for the fact that your temperament Is sanguine or melancholia or bilious or lymphatlo or nervous. Neither are you responsible for the place of your nativity, whether among the granite hills of New England, or .he cotton plantations of Louisiana, or on tho banks of the Clyde, or the Dnieper, or the Shannon, or the Seine. Neither are you re sponsible for the religion taught in your father's house, nor the Irrellgion. Do not bother yourself about what you cannot kelp, or about circumstances that you did not decree. Take things as they are and decide the question so that you shall be able safely to My, "To this end whs I born." How will yon decide ttf Dy direct application to the only Being In the universe who is corape . tsnt to tell you tho Lord Almighty. Do l''you know the reusou why he Is the only one who can tell? Because he can see everything between your cradle and your grave, though the grave be eighty years oft And, besides that, he Is tho only be ing who can see what has been happening for the last five hundred years In yvur au otstral line and for thousands of years clear back to Adam, and there Is not one person In all that ancestral Hue of six thousand years but tins somehow affected your character, and even old Adam him self will sometimes turn up In your dispo sition. The only belug who can take all things that pertain to you luto considera tion is God, and he is the one you can ask. Life is so short we have no time to experi ment with occupations and professions. The reason we have so many dead fail ures is that parents decide for children what they shall do, or children themselves, wrought on by some whim or fancy, decide for themselves without any Imploratlon of divine guidance. So we have now in pulpits men making sermons who ought to be in blacksmith shops making plowshares, and we have In the law those who Instead of ruining the coses of their clleuts ought to be pounding shoe lasts, and doctors who are tho worst hindrances to their patients' convalescence, And artists trying to paint landscapes who ought to be whitewashing board fences. While there are others mak ing bricks who ought to be remodeling constitutions, or shoving planes who ought to be transforming literatures. Ask God about what worldly business you shall un dertake until you are so positive you can in earnestness smite your band on your , plow handle, or your carpenter's bench, 01 your Blockstono'a "Commentaries," or your medical dictionary, or your Dr. Dick's "Didactic Theology," saying, "For this end was I born." There are children who early develop natural affinities for certain styles of work. When the father of the astronomer Forbes wm going to Londou be asked his children what present 'e should bring each one of them. The boy who was to be au astrono bmt cried out, "Bring me a telescope!" And there art children whom you And nil by themselves drawing on their slates, or on paper, ships or houses or birds, mid you know they are to budrnftmncti or artlMsof sumo kind And you Mud others cypher lug out dllllcult problems with ram Inter est and success, and you know they aro to bo mathematicians. And others making wheels nud strange contrivances, and ynu know they are going (o bo machinists And others are found experimenting with boo nud plow mid sickle, and you know they will (mi farmers. And others aro al wnvs mvnnnlnu lnnkktilvi or linlls or lint. and making something by tlio bargain, nud thoy aro going to bo uierchnnts. GOD MUST DECIDE. When Abho do llnnco had so ndvnuced in studying Greek that ho could translate Auncreoii at twolvo years of nge, there was no doubt left that ho was Intended for a scholar. Hut In almost ovcry lad Hiito comes a llin? when ho does not know what he was uiMile for, and his parents do not know, and It Is a crisis thnt God only can dt'L'lilo. Then there nro thoso born for soma especial work, and their fitness does not dovulop until (iiito Into. When Philip Doddrldgo, whoso sermons and books hnvo harvested uncounted souls for glory, be gan to study tho ministry, Dr. Calauiy, ono of tho wisest nnd best mon. ndvlscd him to turn his thoughts to somo other work. Isaac Marrow, tho oinlnont clergy man mid Christian scientist his books standard now, though ho has been dead over two hundred years was tho dlsheart- eimiout or his father, who used so say that If It pleased God to tnko any of hlichlldren away ho hoieil It might bo his son Isaac. So soino of thoso who liavo been character I .cd for their stupidity In boyhood or girl hood havo turned out tho mightiest bene factors or benefactresses of tho huiniin race. TIicno things being so, am I not right In saying that in many cases God only knows what Is tho most approprlato thing for you to do, mid ho Is tho ono to ask. And let all parents mid nil schools and all univer sities and all colleges rccognIr.o this, nnd n largo number of thoso who spent their best years In stumbling nbout nmong busi nesses nnd occupations, now trying this and now trying Hint, nnd falling In nil, would bo nblo to go ahead with a definite, decided and tremendous purpose, saying, "To this cud was 1 born." VOU AUK MADE FOR. IIRAVKN. But my subject now mounts into tho momentous. Ixt mo say that yon nru mado for usefulness and heaven. I judge this from the wny you nro built. You aa into a shop whero thcro Is only ono wheel turning and that by a workman's foot on a treadlo, and say to yourself, "Hero is soniothrnjj good being done, yet on a small scale;" but If you go into a factory cover ing many ncrcs, nnd you find thousands of bands pulling on thousands of wheels, and shuttles flying, ami the whola sceno bewil dering with activities, driven by wntor, or steam, or electric power, you conclude that tlio factory was put up to do great work and on a vast scale. Now, I look nt you, and If I should find that you hnd only one faculty of body, only ono muscle, only one nerve, if you could see but could not hear, or could hear and not sco, if you had tho use of only ono foot or ono hand, and, as to your hlghor nature, If you had only ono mental faculty, nnd you had memory but no Judgment, or Judgment but no will, and if you had a soul with only ono capacity, I would say not much Is expected of you. But stand up, O man, and let mo look you squarely In the face I Eyes cnpablo of seeing everything. Ears crtpablo of hear ing everything. Hands capable of grasp ing everything. Mind with more wheels than any factory ever turned, more power than Corliss engluo ever moved. A soul thnt will outlive all tho universe, except heaven, and would outlive all heaven If the llfo of other Immortals were a moment short of the eternal. Now, what has the world a right to expect from youf What hns God a right to demand of youf God Is the greatest of economists in' tho universe, aud he makes nothing uselessly, mid for what purpose did ho build your body, mind and soul as they nro bulltf There nre only two beings In thouniverso who can answer that question. Tho angels do not know, The schools do not know. Your kindred cannot certainly know. God knows, and you ought to know. A factory running at an expenso of (500,000 n year, and turning out goods worth seventy cents a year would not bo such an incongruity as you, O man, with such seml-inflnlte equipment doing nothing, or next to noth ing, in tho way of usefulness. "What shall 1 do" you ask. My brethren, my sisters, do not ask mo. Ask God. There's some path of Christian useful ness open. ,It may bo a rough pnth, or it may be a smooth path, a long path or a short path. It may bo on a mount of con splculty or In a vnlley unobserved, but It Is n path on which you can start with such faith aud such satisfaction and such cer tainty that you can cry out In the facu of earth and hell and heavcu, "To this end was I born." Do uot wait for extraordi nary qualifications. Philip tho Conqueror gained his greatest victories sentcd on n mule, and if you wait for some capnrisoued Bucephalus to ride Into the conflict you will never get into the world wide fight at alL Samson slew the lord's enemies with tho Jawbone of the stupidest beast created. Shumgnr slew six hundred of the Lord's enemies with an ox gond. Under God recllon. I consulted my own tnstes. I liked lawyers and courtrooms mid Judges nnd Juries, and I reveled In hearing the PrelltighiijjseiiN aud tho Hradleys of the New Jersey bar, nnd as assistant of the county clerk, nt sixteen vears of age, I searched titles, niiliirnllr.cd foreigners, recorded .Iced, received the confession of Judgments, snore witnesses mid Juries nnd grand Juries Hut after nwliilo 1 felt a call to the (impel ministry and entered It, and I felt sumo satisfaction In the work.

While tho horses were drinking, one of the men said to the other a few words ubout the value of the soul, and then they rode away, and In opposite directions. But tho words ut tered were the salvation of the one to whom they were uttered, and he became the Rev. Mr. Champion, one of the most distinguished missionaries In heathen lauds, for years wondering who did for him tho Christian kindness, and not finding out until, In a bundle of books sent him to Africa, he found the biography of Bralnerd Taylor and a picture of him, and the mis sionary recognized the face In that book as the mnn who, at the waterlug trough for horses, bad said the thing that saved his soul.

Let It be your brain, your tongue, youreyes, yourears, your heart, yourlungs, your hands, your feet, your body, your mind, your soul, your life, your death, your time, your eternity for God, feeling in your soul, "To this end win I born." It may be helpful to some if I recite my own experience in this regard. I started for the law without asking any divine dl 'lpplng ludo u to i..urge a blinron Springs, mid whllo seated In tho park of that village, I said to myself, "If I hnvumi especial work to do In tho world I ought to Hud It out now," nud with that deteriiiliiitliiii I prayed as i had nover be low prayed, mid got the dlvlno direction, and wrote It down In my memorandum book, and I saw my llfo work then as plainly as I see It now Oh, do uot bo satlslled with general di rections.

A friend of mlno owns u skyu terrier, now 8 years old, of which she Is very fond. when tho llttlu fellow wns about a year old a very savagu cat Jumped at him without the slightest provocation and scratched his left eye, from the effects of which a cataract formed mid nfter two yean caused blindness In that eye. From sympathy a cataract formed gradually over tho other eye, mid last summer he be cmno totally blind. Somo years beforo tho second eyo becumo affected the owner took Teddle (such Is his uame) to an eyo mid ear hospital of this city mid had nn opera tion performed on tho oyo which tho cat had scratched. Ono of tho physlclnns attached to tho hospital was tho operator, and ho was sur rounded by other physicians, by assistants and nurses, nil of whom were deeply In terested. Tho owner held tho dog In 'her lap, cocaluo was administered, aud Teddle did not move uutll a deep cut caused him to give a llttlo cry. Tho operation was a failure; the cataract was so hard that thu Instrument slipped. It was llko working on n pleco of marble. Later on, the same doctor performed tho operation painlessly on two different occa sions on tho same eye, with no better suc cess than tho first time; but ho was willing to try it ngnln and cut off the cataract en tirely, but it would bo neces&nry to chloro form the dog, hh tho pain would otherwise bo too greaU Teddlo's mistress was nt the same time Informed that he might die from tho affects of tho nnrusthetlc, mid sho would not tako tho risk of losing her peu A few months ago, however, she changed her mind and determined to allow It to bo chloroformed, preparatory to tho fourth operation.

On May 13, at the village of Hebool, in the Ankoln subdivision of tho district of Knunra, a largo tiger was killed under the followlug strango nnd tragic circum stances! Shortly nfter sunset a womnn of the cultivnting class was gathering fallen fruit under a small clump of mango trees on the edgo of a rlco Held not moru than 100 paces from her dwelling. Suddenly from n shallow, dry ditch, which rau close by the spot, a tiger, which hnd apparently stalked tho woman under Its cover, sprang on her, seized her by the back of the neck and boro her to the ground. Her shrieks of agony brought out a neighbor s. h u housu was not more than fifty paces away, mid who then saw the tiger standing on tho high ground above tho ditch at some little distance from the body of his victim. There thu animal seems to havo remained until tho arrival of the patel mid n Mohiiuiiuedmi with a loaded gun.

If you realize that it is an Imper fect picture, my apology Is what tho apos tle John said, "It doth not yet appear what wo shall be." "To this end was 1 born." If I did not think so 1 would be overwhelmed with melancholy. Tho world does very well for a little while, eighty, or a hundred or a hundred and fifty years, and 1 think that human longevity may 'yet be improved up to that prolongation, for now there is so little room between our cradle mid our grave we eaunot accomplish much, but who would want to dwell In this world for nil eternity I Some think this earth will dually be turned into n heaven. Perhaps It may, but it would hnvo to undergo radical repairs, and through eliminations and evolutions and revolutions and transformations infinite, to make it desirable for eternal residence. All the east winds would have to become wet winds, mid all the winters changed to springtides, and the volcanoes extin guished, aud thu oceans chained to theii beds, and the epidemics forbidden entrance, aud the world so fixed up that I think It would take more to repair this old world than to make an entirely new one. But I must say I do not care where heaven Is If we can only get there, whether a garden lsed America, or au emparndised Europe, or a world central to the whole universe. "To this end was I born."

Thnt he would soon havo recovered himself and have re turned to his meal had ho been undisturbed there can lie little doubt. Times of India. TaUpMthy lo Dreamt.
