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 won-.cn 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, fcv.ing 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 away. 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 fourth ties of fourth me." generation: ''Visiting the iniqui the fathers upon the third and generations of them that bate Parental influence, right and wrong, may jump over a generation, but it will come down further on as sure r.s 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 remember a piayer live minutes than bo can five centuries. Tills explains what we often see some man cr woman ilistinguished for benevolence when the father and mother were distinguished for penuriousness, or you sco some young man or woman, with a bad father and .1 hard mother, come out gloriously for Christ and mako the church sob ar.d shout and sing under their exhortations. 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 ness and sin?" I will explain it to you 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 olel fashioned name of Jemima or Betsey or Mehitabel. A h, thero ' she is, the old grandmother or great grandmother, who had enough religion to saturate a cen tr.ry. There she is, the dear old soul, Grand mother L013. In our beautiful Green wood may we all sleep there when our work is done, for when I get up in tlte rcsurrectiou morning 1 want my congre gation all about me in Greenwood there is the resting place of George Yv. Bethune, once a minister of Brooklyn Heights, his name never spoken among intelligent Americans without suggesting two things eloquence anel evangelism. In the same tomb eleep3his grandmcahc-i'. 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 vation, you will not wonder that suc 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. '- 1 ask nothing la all this world for htm; I repent 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 co and mine have not been common ones; aC-.i this wonder to the rest. Call, convert, regenrrste and establish a sailor in the faith. Lord, aii thia.: ere possible with thee; glorify thy son end e:." tud his kingdom by eca end land; tahs tli 1 :cy from tho sfrontj.

With such a grandmother would you not have a right to expect a-George V. Bethune? and all the thousands converted through his ministry my date the sav ing power back to Isabella Graham.
