Christ must suiter .to pay thu price of
our redemption.
Hut I remark nnaln, tho sutTerinun of
Christ were tiecessnry In order thnt the
world' sympathies might be aroused. Men
are won to tho right and nood through
their sympathies. The world must feel
aright liefore It can net aright. So the
cross was allowed to Inj lifted that the
world'a sympathies might be aroused.
Men who have been obdurated by the
cruelties they have enacted, by tho mas
sacres they have Inflicted, by the horror
of which they hnvu liccu guilty have bo
come little children In the presence of this
dying Saviour. lint the sword could not
do, what Juggernauts could not sulxlue,
the wounded baud or Christ lias accom
plished. There are this moment millions
of people held under tho spell of that one
sacrifice. The hummers thnt struck the
pikes into the cross have broken the rocky
heart of the world. Nothing but the
agonies of a Saviour's death throe could
rouse the world's sympathies.
I remark again, "It behoved Christ to
suffer" that thu strength nnd persistence
of tho divine love might be demonstrated.
Waa It tho applause of tho world that In
duced Christ on that crusade from heaven?
Why, all the universe was at his feet.
Could the conquest of this Insignificant
planet bavo paid him for his career of pain
If It hnd been a mere matter of applause?
All the honors of heaven surging at Ids
feet. Would your queen give up her throne
that she might rule a mlseralilo tribe in
Africa? Would the Lord Jesus Christ, on
the throne of thu universe, come down to
nur planet If it were n mere matter of ap
plause nnd acclamation?
Nor was It un expedition undertaken for
the accumulation of vast wealth. What
could nil the harvests ami nil tho diamonds
of our little world do for him whose nre
the glories of Infinitude nnd eternity? Nor
was It an experiment an nttempt to show
what he could do with the hard hearted
race. He who wheels the stars In their
courses and holds the pillars of tho mil
verse on the tips of his fingers needed to
make noexperiment to find whnt he could
da Ob, I will tell you, my friends, what
It was. It whs the undisguised, unlim
ited, all conquering, all consuming, In
finite, eternal, omnipotent love thnt
opened the gate, that started thu
star In the east, with linger of light
pointing down to thu manger; that ar
rayed the Christina choir above Bethle
hem; that' opened thu stable door wheru
Christ whs liorn; that lifted him on the
cross. I.ovc thirsty at the well. Love nt
the sick man's couch. Love at the crl
ple'a crutch. Love sweating In the gar
den. love dying on the cross. Love
wrupped In the grave. You cannot mis
take it. The blindest eye mustseu It, The
hardest heart must feel It. The deafest
ear must hear It, Parable ami miracle,
wayside talk and seaside iutervtew, all the
scenes of bis life, all the sufferings of his
death, proving lieyond controversy thnt
for our Ingrate earth God has yearned with
stupendous nnd inextinguishable love.
BOCIKTV 18 OUT OF UKAIU
But I remark again, "It behoved Christ
to suffer" thnt the nature of human guilt
might be demonstrated. There Is not a
common sense man In the house today thnt
will not admit that thu machinery of soci
ety is out of gear, thnt the human mind
nnd the human heart are disorganized,
that something ought to be done and done
right away for its repair and readjust
menu Hut the height ami depth and
length and breadth anil hate and reckless
ness and the Infernal energy of the human
heart for sli would, not have been deiupu
strnted if against tlie holy and innocent
one of the cross it hnd not been hurled In
oue bolt of lire,
Christ was not the first man that had
been put to death. There had been liii.ny
fieforo him put to duathi but they had
their whims, their follies, their sins, their
Inconsistencies. Hut when tho mob nut
fide of .Jerusalem howled nt the Bon of
Qisl It was hate against goodness, It waa
blasphemy against virtue, It win earth
against heaven. What wns It In that Inno
cent nnd loving face of Christ thnt excited
tho vituperation nml the contumely and
scorn of men? If he had bantered them to
coma on, If ho had laughed thetn Into de
rision, If ho had denounced them as the
vngnlmnds that they were, we could un
derstand their ferocity; but It was against
Innffenslvcness thnt they brandished their
tienrs, and shook their fists, nnd ground
their teeth, and howled nnd scoffed and
Jeored nnd mocked.
Whnt evil had ho done? Whoso eye
sight had ho put nut? None; but ho had
given vision to the blind. Whoso child
hnd ho slain? None; but he restored the
dead damsel to her mother. What law
hnd ho broken? None; but ho hnd Incul
cated obedience to government. What
foul plot hnd he enacted against tho hap
piness of the race? None; ho hnd como to
snvo n world. Thu only cruelty ho ever
enacted was to Ileal the sick. Thu only
ostentation he ever displayed wns to sit
with publicans mid sinners nnd wnsb the
disciples' feet.
Thu only selfishness ho ever exhibited
was to give his life for his enemies. Ami
yet nil the wrath of tho world surged
against his holy heart. Henr the redhot
scorn of thu world hissing in the pools of
n Saviour's bloisll And stnndlng then
today, let us see what nn unreasonable,
loathsome, hateful, blasting, damning
thing Is tho iniquity of the human heuit.
Unloosed, what will not sin do? It will
scale any height, It will fathom tho very
depth of hell, It will revel In nil luse.lv
lousness. There Is mi blasphemy it will
not utter, there nru no cruelties on which
It will not gorge Itself. It will wallow in
filth, It will breath tho nlr of chnruel
houses of corruption nml call them nroma,
it will quaff the blood of Immortal souls
nml call It nectar.
When sin murdered Christ on tho cross
It showed what It would do with thu Iinl
God Almighty If It could get nt him. The
prophet had declared I think It wns Jere
miah had declared centuries before the
truth, hut not until sin shot out Its forked
tongue nt thu crucifixion nnd tossed Its
sting into thu soul of a martyred Jesus
was It illustrated, that "tho heart Is de
ceitful iiIkjvo all things nnd desperately
wicked."

Other kings have had many subjects, but
where Is the king who hud so many ml

dreds nnd thousands of men who have
cheerfully died that Christ might reign
Aye, there nre n hundred men In this house
who, If need were, would step out and die
for Jesus. Their faith may now seem to Ik
faint, nnd sometimes they tuny be Incon
sistent; but let the fires of martyrdom he
kindled, throw them into thu pit, cover
them with poisonous serpents, pound them,
flail them, crush them, nnd I will tell you
what their last cry would be, "Come, Loid
Jesus, come quickly!"
Oh, yes! the I-ord Jesus bus won the
nffections of many of us. There nre some
of us who cun say this morning, "Iord Jo
sus, my light and my song, my hope for
time, my expectation tor eternity." Alto

ished with the vision. Thou art mine.
Come, let me clasp thee. Come life, couu

glvu thee up. I have heard thy voice. I
hnvu seen thy bleeding side. Lord Jesus,
If I hnd some garland plucked from heav
enly gardens, I would wreathe it for thy
brow. If I had some gem worthy of tha
place, I would set It ill thy crown. If I
had seraphic harp, I would strike it In thy
praise. But I come, lost and ruined ami
undone, to throw myself nt thy feet.
No prlcu I bring;
Simply to thy crow 1 cling.
Thou knowest all tilings. Thou knowest
that I lovu thee.
LEAKS HOW TO 8UFFEK.
But I remark again, "It behoved Christ
to suffer" that the world might learn how
to suffer. Sometimes peoplo suffer because
they cannot help themselves, but Christ
had In his hands nil the weapons to puulsh
his enemies, nnd yet in quiescence he un
dured all outrage. Ho might have hurled
tho rocks of Golgotha upon his pursuers;
he might have cleft the earth until It
swallowed up his nssailnnts; ho might
have called In rc-enforccment or taken any
thunderbolt from the nnnory of God Om
nipotent nnd hurled it seething nnd fiery
among his foes, but he miswered not again.
Oh, my hearer) has there ever been in
the history of the world such nn example
of enduring patience ns wo find In the
cross? Some of you suffer physical dis
tresses, some, of you have lifelong ailments,
and they make you fretful. Sometimes
you think thnt God ha given you a cup
too deep and too brimming. Sometimes
you see thu world laughing and romping
on tho highways of life, and you look out
of the window while seated In Invalid's
chair.
I want to show you this morning one
who had worse pains in the head than
you have ever had, whose back was
scourged, who was wounded in the hands
and wounded In the feet mid suffered all
ever, and I want that example to make
you more enduring In your suffering nnd
to make you say, "Father, not my will
but thine be done." You never have had
any bodily pain, and you will never have
a.ny bodily pain that equaled Christ's tor
ture. "It behoved Christ to suffer" that
he might show you how physically to
auffer.
Some of you are persecuted. There an
those who hate you. They criticise you
They would be glad to M-e you stumble
and fall. They have done unaccountable
itucannesses towunl you. Sometimes )ou
(feel angry. You feel as If you would like
to retort. Stop! Uok at the closed lip,
look nt the still hand, look at thu beautl
ful demeanor of your Lord. Struck, nut
r.riklng back again. Oh, if you could
only appreciate what he eudurcd In tha
wny of persecution you never would com
plain of persecution! The wonls of Christ
would be your wonls, "Father, If It bo
possible, let this cup pass from me; hut If
not, thy will be done." "It behoved
Christ to suffer" persecution, that hu
might show you how to endure pcrsecu
t4nn.
Soma of you are bereft. It Is no rnndotn
rem srk, lecatiM) there Is handy a family
here thnt hns not passed under thoshndow.
You hnvu been bereft. Your house Is n
different place fnmi what It used to lie.
Tho same furniture, the same books, tho
same pictures, but there has been n voice
bushed there. Tho face that used to light
Up the whole dwelling has vanished. Tho
pattering of the other feet does not break
up tho loneliness. Tho wave hns gone over
yoursoul.and you havo sometimes thought
whnt you would tell him when ho comes
back, but then the thought hns flashed
upon you, he will never come back.
Ah! my brother, my sister, Christ has
sounded nil that depth. Jesus of the be
reft soul Is hero today. Behold I1I111! He
knows what It Is to weep at tho tomU It
seems to mo as If all the storms of the
world's sorrow were compressed Into one
sob nnd that sob were uttered In two
wonls, "Jesus wept."
I close my sermon with n doxology:
"Blessing nnd glory nnd honor nnd power
bo unto I1I111 that sltteth upon tho throne,
nnd unto tho Lamb forever. Amen ami
amen I"
The Vsmlrrlillt Whip.
Tho Vanderbllt family owns n vnlnablo
whip. It wns presented to tho Into W. 11.
Vanderbllt. Thodeslgn was mndo by Fritz
Kaldenbur, the sculptor, ut a cost of
12,000. The whip nml Ivory stock, before
any carving wns done, cost WOO. It is
seven feet long. Above tho stock tho whip
is madu of solid whalebone, then worth
threu dollars per pound, now scarce at ten
dollars, Over this solid whalchouo Is thu
finest braiding of split tapered whalebone
over attempted,
Thu braiding of the whip and tho mak
ing of the snapper occupied one whole
month. The easo for thu whip cost (100.
Tho handle of thu whip is of tho purest
ivory, 121 inches long and IK Inches thick
nt thu butt end, which is nn ornamental
capital, from which a floral pattern ema
nates, emblematic of tower, truth nnd per
petuity, which encircles four panels. Iu
each panel Is u wonderful piece of curving,
on one side u locomotive and a train of
cars, on the other a steamboat, symboliz
ing thu foundation of Cornelius Vandcr
bilt's great achievements.
On the, third nnd fourth panels are the
achievements of W, II. Vamlerbilt'sgeiilus
the Grand Central railroad depot on
one, nnd on thu other himself In n buggy
driving his celebrated fast horses on the
road. On tho end of tho hnndlo two por
trait busts In high relief of Cornelius nnd
W. H. Vanderbllt father and son. Tho
whip Is sacredly kept In a glns case
among the art treasures of tho Vanderbllt
gnllery, nnd In future generations will bo
treasured as n work of nrt, even though It
Is only a whip. Jewelers' Hevlew.
Employments of Frenchwomen.
It is not at all unlikely that tho Jealousy
or the downright aversion shown by thu
French medical students to female compe
tition arises from thnt curious social con
servatism which prevails nmong a nntion
whomrely miss tho opportunity to pro
claim themselves the most democratic peo
ple in Kuropc. There havo alwnys been n
great many crafts and employments open
to Frenchwomen from which English
women were, until a very recent period,
almost entirely debarred. From tlmo Im
memorial iu Purls and other large French
towns the shopkeeper's wife lias officiated
as his lKXik keeper and cashier, and very
often Intent night, while monsieur is play
ing dominoes or bllllnnls, or enjoying his
clgnr nnd his "bock" at his favorite cafe,
mndame Is painfully balancing her books
behind the counter of the deserted but
still brilliantly llt-shop.
Women, again, In France have an nlmoot
entire monopoly in selling newspapers nt
tho klosques, or In keeping "bureaux do
tabac." They may nlso practice art ,'ydt li
mit let or hindrance, and they may attain,
If they have the talent and the capacity,
bright eminence ns painters, sculptors, en
gravers or drnftswomen In black aud
white; but tho Academy of Fine Arts per
sistently sets Its face against tho admis
sion of lady members, although, as Mine.
Leon Bertaux, the president of thu Union
of FemlnlneArtlsts, has pointed out, there
were In tho last century two lady acade
micians Mine. Terbursch and the renown

What tlie Kyrs Denote.
One can always trust tho gray, full orb
thnt looks clearly out from under lashes
long and straight. Tho gray eye with
curling lashes is a certain sign of a frivo
lous nature, while a small, oval, brown
optic, with flecks of contrasting color near
thu pupil, indicates a highly nervous tem
perament with literary tendencies. This
eye Is always overshadowed by sadness
when In repose, aud is such a nno ns many
poets and painters have possessed.
Large, liquid black eyes denote a sympa
thetic nature easily moved, but with no
great depth of feeling. Eyes of whatever
hue, if set close together, tell to tho world
thnt their owner is not to bo trusted. Be
ware the shifting glnnce It threatens
danger. A full, dnrk blue eye Is tho very
type of honest intention nnd resolute pur
pose, yet n light, watery ono betrays n
weak, vacillating nature, easily influenced
for good or evil, but more often tending
towanl the latter rather than the former
course. The eye of keen erceptiou nnd
rnro ability Is thu deep brown, with no
mellowness, but n look on Its surface us of
high polish.
This eye reads you through and through
and Is the index of a nature calculating,
cold and hanl In business dealing, yet
stanch nnd true In its friendships. Phil

The most remarknblo Instance of resthetl
clsm among birds Is that exhibited by the
Australian bower birds, who build long
galleries in which to play, adorning them
with shells, feathers, leaves, bone or any
colored or glittering object which comes
In their way. Captain Stokes described
one of theso bower birds as taking a shell
alternately from each side of the bowtr
and carrying It through iu Its beak.
Lumholtz describes several of these
playhouses of thu bower birds. He says
they are always to bo found "In small
brushwood, never in the open field, and in
their immediate vicinity thu bird collects
amass of different kinds of objects, espe
cially snailshells, which are laid iu two
heaps, one at each entrance, tho oue. being
always much larger than thu other. There
ure frequently hundreds of shells, about
300 in oue heap and thirty In thu other.
There Is usually a handful of green ber
ries partly Inside aud partly outside th
Iwwer." CIiiiiiiImts' Journal.

In HrlitHtl.
1 have Just returned homo from an even
ing at tho play, or rather from visiting my
friends, the Ilobinson.
Koblnsmi.aii nmlable man except when
hi shoelace breaks, sat alono and glum.
In the study. His teeth were clinched, his
face' was pale nnd he stared hanl at the
Are. He welcomed mo with an effort nnd
then forgot me. He Is a business man nnd
I nm not; so I concluded thnt stocks or
debentures had fallen or risen (or what
ever It is tlic.su things do to plunge those
who know whnt they are In despair). I
tried the drawing room nnd there found
the two little girls crying, Mrs. Hoblusoii
01 tho couch, with her face to tho wnll.
This wns serious, and seemed to mo to
menu nt least a "corner" In stocks.
It was not stocks, however, my hostess
told me from liehlnd a handkerchief, It
rn Bobby. Had not her husband shown
me "the letter?"
Hobby Is the heir, aged seven. I softly
withdrew from the drawing room ami re
turned to Ilobinson, who, with trembling
arm, handed me "the letter." It was from
tlio master of a school to which Hobby goes
by train dally, except during tho blnlnest
Ing season, when other matters claim hl
attention. The letter read thusi
Dr.AU Hiu I regret to have to apprise ) mi of
tho fact that I hnd today to enno )our sun
severely. Ho Is tho youngest boy I have eer
enned, but his delinquencies havo of Into been
so friMpient thnt no other courso was open to

)ou pain, but tho punishment wlllhavoalx'iie

boys of his iw. whoso lender In mischief be

Tho disgrace of tho punishment. Indeed, Is
urentvr thnn thu punishment Itself. That
Kobert may feel his sliamo moro keenly I lime
read this letter to him, and hu shall be the
bearer of It to J oil.
"And where Is Bobby at present?" I
asked, when I bad read this terrible letter.
"Crying his eyes out in tho nursery, no
doubt," answered Itobiiisnii. "Of course 1
should hnvu him here, but I enn't facu him
I can't face him. I don't blame his man
ter, but My denr friend, think of Itt The
youngest lioy over enned iu tho school!
The mnrks won't wear off his hands foru
week, nnd think of his agony of mind
every tlmo ho looks nt tbemt Bobby Is 11
sensitive boy, otberwiso I should not ta ki
lt so much to heart. My hands, I assure
you, ure tingling ns If I had In-en ctuivil

Mrs. Hoblusoii was for the moment not
on speaking terms with Robinson, bccuuye
he seemed tothlnk that Bobby should con
tlnuetogo to "such a school." If Hobby
hnd misconducted himself, surely the
blame lay with u muster who did not nn
derstatMl that hu wns n boy who could best
be ruled by kindness. She hod never hnd
tho least trouble with Bobby. No, ho was
not Id thu house. Hu had ran out Imme
dlately after delivering the lettor, and she
hnd searched or him everywhere In vain
His pride hnd been broken. Ho would
uever bo the same boy again. Ho was
afraid to bo looked nt. He wns no doubt
hidden somewhere in tho cold night, and
he hnd not oven on his greatcoat and he
would catch his death of cold.
"If he docs, mamma," asked the oldei
girl, brightening, "will the master bt
hauged? And. oh, do you think we could
get tickets?"
Tho ulglit was dark, so wo lit a lantern
nnd Hct off to look for the unhappy Bobby.

ragged lads of the village. If they began
to brag Hobby stopped them short with,
"That Isn't nothing; you didn't never get
caned."
"Yes, I did, though," Insisted oue.
"Let mo see yourhnnd," retorted Bobby.
"Oh, hoi he won't, nml 'cause there's not
no marks on it."
"Let us seu your hands again, Bobby."

"Bobby, I'm thu one you llko best, ain't
I?"
"I'm tho youngest he ever licked!" cried
Bobby in a transport of delight. Ho began
to strut up mid down thu stable.
"Well, then, you needn't bouueo about
it like that."
"I'm the youngest he ever enned I So
would you bounce if you was thu yonng

"Look here, you chaps," broke in tho
hero of the dny, "I nnin't not to be called
