it was worse a b --in-.lred years ago, tor
the chaplain of a French jvgnncnt m our
revolutionary war wrote in 1 7&2, hls
book of American women, saying: - ihey
are tall and well 107' rtionsJ. their feat
ures are genenJiv lvgular. lbt'ir complex
ions are generally fair and without color.
At 20 vears of age the women havo ivy
ionr" the freshncrs of youth. At SO
or 40 thev are decrepit." In 1S12 a for
An consid wrote a book entitled "A
Sketel' of the Uniuil States at the Com
'jnenee'ment of the Present Century, "and
he savs .of th women of those times:
At the age of :0 all tlieir charms have
.disappeared." One glancu ct the ior
raits" of the a hundred year
,a-o and their styL- of dress makes uj
5vonder how tlu-y ever got their breath.
AU this makes me think that the express
rail train is no wore an improvement on
the old canal boat, or the telegraph i,
more an improvement on the old time
saddlebags, than the women of our day
croan improvement on the women of tho
last contury.
Bat still, notwithstanding that those
times -were so much worse tliaii ours,
there was a glorious race of godly
women, soventv and a hundred years
a"-o, who held she world back from n
and lifted it toward virtue, and without
their exalted and sanctified influence be
fore this the last good influence would
have perished from the earth. Indeed
All over this Und there are seated to-day
not so riuch in churches, for many of
them are too feeble to come a great
manv aed grandmothers. They some
times fel that the world has gone past
them, and they have an idea they are ot
little account. Their head sometimes
cets fiching from the racket of the grand
children down stairs or in the next room.
Thev steadv themselves by the buitera
ns thev goim and d3m. YsTien they
pet a cold it hangs en to them longer
than it ud to. They cannot rear to
liavo thograndcliildrcu iiunfaiied even
when they deserre ifc, and have so re
laxed their ideas of family discipline that
they would spoil all tho youngsters of tho
household by too great leniency. Theso
old folks are tho resort when great trou
bles come, and thero is a calming and
hoothing ower in tho touch of an aged
hand tliat is almost Kticrnatural. They
feel they aro almost through with the
journey of life, and read tho old Ijook
more than they used to, hardly knowing
which most they enjoy, the Old Testa
ment or tho New, and often stop and
dwell tearfully over the family record
half way between. We hail them today
whether in tho hou.'ie of (Jod or at the
homestead. Blessed is that household
that lias in it a Grandmother Lois.
Where she is angels are hovering round
and Cod is in the room. May her last
days be like those lovely autumnal days
that we call Indian summer.
I never knew the joy of having a
grandmother; that is the disadvantage
of I icing tho youngest child of the family
The elder meuilM-rs only have that Ikuc
dii tion. But though she went up out of
this life liefore I licgan it, I have heard
of her faith in Clod, that brought all her
i 'e'dren into tho kingdom and two of
liiein into the ministry, arid then brought
all her grandchildren into tho kingdom,
myself the hist and least worthy. Is it
not time that you and I do two things, open a picture gallery of the
wrinkled faces and stoojiod shoulders of
the past, and call down from their heav
enly thrones tho godly grandmothers, to
give them our thanks, and then iorsuade
tho mothers of today that they are living
for all time, and that against the sides of
every cradle in which a child is rocked
lx-at tho two eternities.
1 ero we have an untried, undiscussed
and unexplored subject. You often hear
about your inlluences upon your own
children lam not talking about that.
What alxnit your influence ujion the
Twentieth century, upon the Thirtieth
century, upon the Fortieth century, upon
the year two thousand, upon the year
four thousand, if the world lasts so long.
The world stood four thousand years be
fore Christ came; it is not unreasonable
to suppose that it may btand four thous
and years after his arrival. Four thou
sand years the world swung off in sin;
four thousand years it may be swinging
back into righteousness. By the ordin
ary rate of multiplication of the
world's population, in a century your
descendants will be over six hun
dred, and by two centuries at least
over a hundred thousand, perhaps
two hundred thousand, and upon every
one of them you, the mother of today,
will have an influence for good or evil.
And if in two centuries your descendants
shall have with their names filled a scroll
of hundreds of thousands, will some angel
from heaven, to whom is given the ca
pacity to calculate the number of the
stars of heaven and the sands of the sea
shore, step down and tell us how many
descendants you will have in tho four
thousandth year of the world's possible
continuance. Do not let the grand
mothers any longer think that they are
retired, and sit clear lack out of sight
from the world, feeling that they
have no relation to it. The moth
ers of the last century are today
in tho senates, tho parliaments, the
palaces, the pulpits, the banking houses,
the professional chairs, the prisons, tho
almshouses, the company of midnight
brigands, the cellars, the ditches of this
century. You have been thinking about
the importance of having the right in
fiuenco upon ono nursery. You have
been thinking of the importance of get
ting those two little feet on th.3 right
path. You have been thinking of your
child's destiny for the next eighty years,
if it should pass on to bean octogenarian.
That is well : bv my subject sweeps a
thousand years, a million year&, a quad
rillion of years. I cannot stop at one
cradle, I am looking at the cradles that
reach all round the world and across all
lime. I am not talking of mother
CuTiice, 1 am talking of grandmother
Lois. The only way you can tell the
force of a current is by sailing up stream ;
or the force of an ocean wave,
by running the ship against it. Run
ning along with it we cannot appreciate
thu force. In estimating maternal influ
ence we generally run along with it
down the stream of time, and so w-e
don't understand the full force. Let us
come i.ip tc it from the eternity side,
::ftor t has been working for centuries,
and see ali the good it has done and all
the evil it has accomplished multiplied in
magnificent or appalling compound in
terest. The difference between that
mother's influence on her children now
and the influence when it has lcen mul
tiplied in hundreds of thousands of
lives, is the difference between
the Jlississippi river way up at
the top of the continent, starting
from the little Lake Itasca, seven miles
long and ore wide, and its mziuth at the
Gulf of Mexico, where navies might ride.
Between the birth of that river and its
burial in tlia sea the Missouri pours in,
and the Ohio pours in, and the Arkan
sas pours in, mid the Red and White and
Yazoo rivers pour in, and all tho states
and territorities between tho Alleghany
and Rocky mountains make contribu
tion. Now, in order to test the power of
a mother's influence, we need to come in
off of thte ocean of eternity and sail up
toward the one cradle, a;d we will find
ten thousand tributaries of influence
pouring in and pouring down. But it is
after all one great river of power rolling
on and rolling' forever. Who can fathom
it? Who can bridge it? "Who can
stop it? Uad not mothers better be in
tensifying their prayers? Had they not
better be elevating their example? Had
they not better be rousing themselves
wth the consideration that by their
faithfulness ,or neglect they are starting
an influence which will be stupendous
after the last mountain of earth is flat,
and the last pea has been dried up, and
the last flake of tin? ashes of a consumed
world shall have been blown away, and
all the telescopes of other worlds directed
to the track around which our world
finrp swuni shall discover not so much
! as a cinder of the burned down and
i swept off planet. In Ceylon there is a
I granite column thirty-six square feet in
f'i;:e, which is thought by the natives to
: decide the world's continuance. An
i angel with robe spun from zephyrs is
once a century to descend and sweep the
hem of that robe across the granite, and
wlwriby that attrition the column is
worn away they say time will end. But
by that proow tbt granite rAiumn would
be worn out of existence before n
mother's influence will begin i'o givo
If a mother tell a child bo U not good,
some hugalmo will come and catch him,
the fear excited may mako tho child a
coward, and the fact that ho finds that
there is no bugaboo may make him a
liar, and the echo of that fa!;;j alarm
may le heard after fifh-on generations
have been Ikhii and liavo expired. If a
mother promises a child a reward for
good behavior and after th' good be
havior forgets to give the reward, tho
cheat may crop out i.i soin- fait hi : .Lisn hs
half a thousand years further on. If a
mother culture a child's vanity and
eulogize his curls, and extol the
night black or sky blue or nut brown,
of the child's eyes, and cail out in his
presence the admiration of si. !( at ors,
pride and arrogance may lo prolonged
after half a, do.en family r( cords have
been obliterated. If a mother express
doubt aljout some idatement of the lloly
Bible in a child's presence, long a fur ibe
gates of this historical era have closed
and tho gates of another era have opened,
tho result may bft seen in a champion
blasphemer. But. on the other hand, it
a mother walking with a child t.oo a suf
fering one by the wayside and says: '-My
child, give that ten cent piece to that
lame boy," the result may he seen on
the other side of tho following
century in some George Muller building
a whole village of orphanages.
If a mother sit sAmosl every evening
by the tiundle bed of a child and teach
it lessons of a Saviour's love and a
Saviour's example, c-f the importance of
truth and the horror of a lie, and tho
virtues of industry and kindness and
sympathy and self sacrifice, long after
the mother has gone and the child has
gone, nr.d the lettering on both the tomb
stones shall have been washed cut by the
storms of innumerable winter;, there
may be standing, as a result of tlio.e
trundle bed lessons, flaming evangels,
world moving reformers, cm t kiting
Summerfieldj, weeping Paysons, thunder
ing White-fields, emancipating Washing
tons. Good or bad influence may skip one
generation, or two generations, but it
will be sure to lanel in the third or fourth
generation, just as the Ten Command
ments, speaking of tho visitation of God
on families, says nothing about the sec
ond generation, but entirely skips tho
second and speaks of tho third and
ties of
generation: ''Visiting the iniqui

you sit there and I stand here, Tim
othy's ministry was projected ty hn
Grandmother Lois. There are men and
women here, tho eons anel daughters of
the Christian church, who are such as a
result of the consecration of great -gror.t-grandmothers.
Why, who do yon think
the Lord is? You talk as though his
memory is weak. lie can no eas-.ier

bo can five centuries. Tills explains
what we often see some man cr woman

man or woman, with a bad father and .1

Christ and mako the church sob ar.d

We stand in corners of the vestry and
whisper over the matter anel say : ' 'How
is this, such great piety in sons and
daughters of cueh parental worlui

if you will fetch me the old family Bible
containing the full record. Let some
septuagenarian look with me clear upon
the page of births and marriages, and
tell me who that woman was with the

is the resting place of George Yv.

intelligent Americans without suggesting

Isabella Graham, who wc.s the chief in
spiration cf his ministry. You are not
surprised at the poetry anel pathos anil
pulpit power of the grandson when you
read of the faith and devotion of his
wonderful ancestress. When you read
this letter, in which she poured out her
wielowed soul in longings for a son's sal

ceeding generations have been blessed:
Kfw York. May 20, 1701. This tlay my only
Ron left me la bitter wrinciags of lioart; be 3
n.crain launched oa the ocean, God's ocean. The?
Lord saved htm from shipwreck, brought hiiu to
my home, and allowed me cace more to indulge
my affections over him. He has been, with mo
but a short time, and ill have I improved It ; he
is gone from my sight and my heart bursts v. iih
tumultuous grief. Lord have msrey on tho
widow's son, "tho only eon of his another. '-

my petition, save his soul alive, give him salva
tion from sin. It is not the dacyer of the sea?;
that distresses me; it is not the hardships ho
must undergo; it is not the dread of cever seein
him more in this world; it Lj because I cannot
discern thc fuiSUmpiit of the j-.ronue in fcim. t
cannot discern the new birth nor its fruit, but
very symptom of captivity to Satan, tho world
and self will. This, this is what distresses
me; and ia connection with this 1A-,
being shut out from ordinances at a ci
tance from Chrietiaus; shut with, those v.lio
forget God, profane bis name and bs-cak his Sab
baths; men who often live and die like beasts,
yet are accountable creatures, who must answer
for every moment of time end every word,
thought and action. Oh Lord, many vrond.-rs
hast thou showa nj thy ways of dealing with

With such a grandmother would you
