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 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

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."
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

Two men riding on horseback came to a

horses were drinking, one of the men said
to the other a few words ubout the value

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

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

had scratched.

and nurses, nil of whom were deeply In

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

the cultivnting class was gathering fallen
fruit under a small clump of mango trees

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

the tiger standing on tho high ground
