The lily i-i tiie quocn of the Tihle Hew
ers. Tlio ros may have disputed her
throne in modem timet, ajul won it; but
tho rose criminally had only five jK-tal-i.
It was under the long continued and in
tense gazo of the world that tho rose
blushed into its present Ix-auty. In the
Itihlo train, cassia and liyRsoji and
frank inceni and myrrh anl npikenard
and camjiliire and the rose follow tho
lily. Fourteen time in the Ihhle is tho
lily mentioned; only twice tho rose.
Tho roue may now have wider empire,
but tho lily reigned in the time of Esther,
in tho time of Solomon, in tho time of
Ciena r had his throne on the hills. The
lily had her throne in tho valley. In tho
greatest secmon that was ever preached,
there was only one flower; and that a
lily. The I Vi I ford dreamer, John Bun
yan, cut ere I the house of tho interpreter,
anil was shown a cluster of Mowers, and
was told to "consider thelilies."
We may study and reject other sciences

Christ commands us to Mudy when ho
says: "Coiir-Mer the lilies." Measure
them from root to tip of petal. Inhale
their breath. Notice the gracefulness
of their joi I car the whi.-pcr of the
while li;n of the eastern and of the red
lips of th American lily.
Belonging to this royal family of lilies
is tho lily of the Nil', the Japan lily, the
Iady Washington lily of the Sierras, the
Golden Hand lily, the fliant lily of Ne
aul, the Turk's Cap lily, the African
lily from the Cape of Ciood lIoe. All
these lilies have tin royal blood in their
veins. But I take the lilies of my text
this morning as typical of all flowers,
and this Hunter day, garlandcdwith all
this opulence of lloral lieautjv seems to
address us, saying: 'Consider the lilies,
consider the azalias, consider the fuch
sias, coiwd.T the geraniums, consider the
ivies, consider the hyacinths, consider
the heliotropes, consider' the oleanders."
With differential "and grateful and inUl
" ligent and worshipful souls, consider
them. Not with in.-ipid seiitiiuentalism
or with sophomorie vaporing, but' for
rand and practical and everyday, and,
if need lie, homely uses, consider them,
The flowers are the angels of the grass.
They all have voices. When tho cloud.
Epeak, they thunder; when tho whirl
win Jd siieak, they scream; when the cat
aract sieak, they roar; but when tho
flowers speak, they always whisper. I
stand litre to interpret their message.
What have you to say. oh 3-e angels of
the grass, to this worshipful multitude?
ThM morning I mean to discuss what
flowers are good for. That is my sub
ject: What are flowers good for?
1. I remark, in the first place, they
are good for lessons of Coil's providential
care. That was Christ's fir.-t thought.
All these flowers Feem to address us to
day, 6aying: '-Cod will give you apparel
and food. We have no wheel with whicli
to spin, no loom with which to weave,
no sickle with which to harvest, no well
sweep with which to draw water; but
God slakes our thirst with the dew, and
God feeds us with the bread of the sun-
shine, and Coil has apiarelod us with
more than Solomonic regality. We are
prophetesses of adequate wardrolie. If
God so clothed us, the grass of the field,
will he not much more clothe you, oh
jo of little faith?"
Jlen and women of worldly anxieties,
tako this message home with you. How
long lias God taken care of you? Quar
ter of the journey of life? half the jour
ney of life? Three-quarters the journey
of life? Can you not trust him tho rest
of the way? God does not promise you
anything like that wlu'ch the Roman
emperor had on his table at vast expense
500 nightingales tongues but he has
promised to take care of you. He has
roinised you the necest-ities. not tho
usuries bread, not cake. If God so
luxuriantly clothes the grass of the field,
will he not provide for yon, his living
and immortal chil tren? He will.
No wonder Martin Luther always had
a flower on his writing desk for inspira
j tion. Through the cracks of the prison
floor a flower grew up t.) dicer ricciola.
Mungo Park, the great traveler ir.- ex
plorer, had his life saved by a ilowor.
lie sank down in tho desert to die. but,
Feeing a Cower near by, it suggested
God's merciful care, a::d he got i:p with
new courage and trr.vt L d on to safety. I
said the flowers are the angels of the
grass. I add now they are the evangels
of the fcky.
2. If you insist on asking me the ques
tion: What are flowers pood for? I re
spond, they are good f. r the bridal (lay.
The bri le iiiii-t have them on her bro.v,
and she must have them in her bar. J.
Tiie marriage altar must le covered with
. them. A wedding wiihout flower
wouKl lie as inappropriate r.s a wedding
without niu.-i At s-uch a time they aro
for congratulation and prophecies ef
good. So much of the pathway of life is
covered up with thorns, we ought to
cover the beginning with oranga Uou
sonis. Flowers are appropriate on rac'i ccctv
tions, for in 00 out of 100 cares ii is tLa
very best tiling that con! I have hap-pono-i.
The world may criticise and pro
nmutw it an inaptitude, and may lift i'.s
eyebrows in surprisa and think it might
merges t something better; but tho Cod
who Kors tho twenty, forty, fifty years of
wedded lifo lioforo they have liegun, ar
ranges nil for tho liest. So that flowers,
in almost nil ctixes, are appropriate for
the marriage day. Tho divergences of
disposition will laconic correftjtfindonoes,
rockIcssns will lxTonie prudence,
frivolity will lie turn-d into practicality.
There haslieon many an aged widowed
wiul who had a carefully locked bureau,
and in the bureau a Ujx, and in the box
a folded pajier, and in the folded jwi'Hr a
half blown rose, hlightly fragrant, dis
colored, carefully pressed. She put it
there forty or fifty years ago. On tho
anniversary day of lur wedding she will
go to the bureau, she will lift the Imix,
hhe will unfold the iwijier, and to her
eyes will m excised the half blown bud,
and the memories of the past will rush
upon her, and a tear will drop ujion the
flower; and suddenly it is transfigured,
and there is a stir in the dust of tho
anther, and it rounds out, and it is full
of life, and it lu gins to tremble in tho
procession up tho church aisle, and tho
!c;.d music of a half century ago
comes throbbing through the air; and
vanished faces reapix'ar, and right hands
are joined, and a manly voice promises:
I will for Ix tter or for worse," and the
wedding march thunders a salvo of joy
at, the departing crowd; but a sigh on
that anniversary day waiters the scene.
Under tin? deep fetched breath, the altar,
tin? flowers, the congratulating groups
are scattered, and there is in 'thing left
but a trembling hand holding a faded
rosebud, which is put into the paper, and
then into the lmx, and the Imx carefully
placed in tho bureau, aifd, with a sharp,
sudden click of the lock, the scene is
Ah, my friends, let not the prophecies
of the flowers on jour wedding day lie
false prophecies, lie blind to.each other's
faults. Make the most of each other's
excellences. Alxive all, do not both get
mad at once! Ilememlier the vows, tho
ring on the third finger of the left hand,
and the benediction of the calla lilies.
:). If you insist on asking me the ques
tion, what are flowers go;nl for? I an
swer, they are good to honor ami com
fort the obsequies. The worst gash ever
made into the side of our jKior earth is
the gash of the grave. It issodeep.it
is so croel, it is so incurable that it needs
something to cover it up. Flowers for
the c:isket, flowers for the hearse, flowers
for the cemetery.
"What a contract letw(en a grave in a
cor.niry churchyard, with the fence
broken down and the toinlistone aslant,
nnd the neighlioring cattle browsing amid
the mullein stalks ami the Canada
thistles, and a June morning in Green
wood, tho wave of roseate bloom rolling
to the top of the mounds, and then
breaking into foaming crests of white
flowers all around the pillows of dust.
It is the difference lxtwcen sleeping un
der rags and sleeping under an
embroidered blanket. Wc want
Old Mortality with hia chisel to go
through all the graveyards of Christen
dom, and while be carries a chisel in one
hand, we want Old Mortality to havo
some flower seed in the palm of the other
Oli," you say, "the dead don't knovr;
it makes no difference to them." I think
you are mistaken. There are not so
many steamers and rail trains coming to
any living city as there are convoys coin
ing from heaven to earth; and if there
be instantaneous and constant communi
cation lictwcen this world and the better
world, do you not supjxise your departed
friends know what you do with their
bodies? Why has Coil planted og0uen
rod" and wild flowers in the forest and
on the prairie where no human eye ever
sees them? He planted them there for
invisible intelligences to look at and ad
mire, and when invisible intelligences
come to look at the wild flowers of tho
woods and the table lands, will they not
make excursions and see tho flowers
which you have planted in affectionate
remembrance of them?
When I am dead, I would like to have
a handful of violets any one coidd pluck
ihem out of the grass, or some one could
lift from the edge of tho pond a water
lily nothing rarely expensive or insane
display, a3 sometimes at funeral rites
where the display takes the bread from
the children's mouths, and tho clothes
from their backs, but something from
the great democracy of flowers. Rather
than imperial catafalque of Russian czar,

by gosiH.1 sermon or Christian deed to

It was left for modern times to spell re

low of flowers, meaning rest for the pil

Christian hope which we have as an

Cross of flowers, suggesting tho tree on
which our sins were slain.'
If I had my way, I would cover up all
the dreamless sleepers, whether in golden

4. If you insist on asking me tho
question: What are flowers good for?
I r.n.i'.ver for religious symliolism. Havo
y v. ever studied Scriptural flora? Tho
Bi; le is n:i aibelur.i, it is a divine con?
fccrvatory. it is a hcrlxuium of exquisite
beauty. If you want to illustrate the
brevity ef the bushiest human life, you
v.iil quote from Job; "A man Cornell
foilh as a flower and is cut down." Or
you will quote from the Tsalmist: ''As
the flower of the field, so he perisheth;
the wind passeth over it, and it is gone.1'
Or you will quote from Isaiah: "All
Cosh is grass, and tho goodlincss therci
. i 5 as the flower of the field." Or you
will quote from James tiie apostle: "As
the flower of t'.u grass, so he passeth
i t-wav." What graphic Bible symbolism!
All the cut flowers this Easter day will
soon be dead, whatever care vou take of
them. Though morning and night you
baptize them in the name of the 6liowcr,
'. the Imptisai-wiil not lie to them a saving
j c-rdi nance. They have been fatally
' wo-.mded with the knife that cut them.
: Th-'v are bleeding their life away; they

1 Oh, yes! flowers are almost human.
Botanists tell us tliat flowers breathe,
they tako nourishment, they eat, they
drink.' They aro sensitive. They have
their likes and dislikes. They sleep, they
wake. They live in families. They
have their ancestors and their descend
ants, their birth, their burial, their cradle,
their grave. The zephyr rocks tho one,
ami the storm digs 'the trench for tho
other. Tho cowslip must leave its gold,
the lily must leave its silver, the rose
must leave its diamond necklace of morn

Flowers also afford mighty symbolism
of Christ, who com tared himself to tho
ancient queen, tho lily, and tho modern
queen, the rose, when he said: "I am
the rose of Sharon and the lily of the
valleys." Redolent like tho one, humble
like the other. lAke loth, appropriate
for the sad, who want sympathizers, and
for tho rejoicing, who want luinqueters.
Hovering over the marriage ceremony
like a wedding bell, or folded like a
chaplet on the pulseless heart of tho

wilderness crimson into a garden, and
the round earth turn into one green bud
of immortal beauty laid against tho
warm heart of God. Snatch down from
the world's K'inners eagle and lion, and
put on lily and rose, lily and rose.
But, my friends, flowers have no
grander use than when on Easter morn
ing we celebrate the reanimation of
Christ from tho catacomlis. All tho
flowers of today siiell resurrection.
There is not a nook or corner in all tho
building but Is touched with the incense.
Tho women carried spices to the tomb
of Christ, and they dropped spices all
around aliout the tomb, and from those
spices have grown all the flowers of
Easter morn. The two white rolled
angels that hurled the stone away from
the door of tho tomb, hurled it with such
violence down the hill that it crashed in
tho door of the world's sepuleher, and
millions of the stark and dead shall come
However labyrinthian the mausoleum,
however costly the sarcophagus, however
architecturally grand the necropolis,
however beautifully parterred the family
grounds, we want them all broken up by
the lord of tho resurrection. The forms
that wo laid away with our broken hearts
must rise again. Father and mother
they must como out. Husband and wife
they nju-st come out. Brothers and
sisters they must como out. Our darling
children they must come out. The eyes
that with trembling fingers we close 1
niUit open in the luster of resurrection
morn. The arms that we folded in death
must join ours in embrace of reunion.
Tiie lieloved voice that was hushed must
be returned. The lieloved form must
come up without its infirmities, without
its fatigues it must come up.
Oh, how long it seems for some of you.
Waiting waiting for the resurrection.
How long! how long! I make for your
broken hearts today a cool, soft bandage
of Easter lilies. Last night we had come in
the mails a beautiful Easter card on the
top of it a representation of that exquis
ite flower called the '"trumpet creeper,"
and under it the inscription: "The
trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall
be raised." I comfort you this day with
the thought of resurrection.
When Lord Nelson was buried in St.
Paul's cathedral in London, tho heart of
all England was stirred. The procession
passed on amid the sobbing of a nation.
There were thirty trumpeters stationed
at the door of the cathedral, with instru
ments of music in hand, waiting for the
signal, and when the illustrious dead
arrived at the gates of St. Paul's cathe
dral these thirty trumpeters gave one
united blast, and then all was silent.
Yet the trumpets did not wake the dead.
He slept right on.
But I have to tell you what thirty
trumpeters could not do for one man
one trumpeter will do for ail nations.
The ages have rolled on, and the clock
of tho world's destiny strikes nine, ten,
eleven, twelve, and time shall bo no
Behold the archangel hovering. He
takes the trumpet, points it this way,
puts its lips to his lips, and then blows
one long, loud, terrific, thunderous,
reverberating and resurrectionary blast.
Look! Look! They rise! The deadl
The dead! Some coming forth from the
family vault. Some from the city cem
etery. Some from the country grave
yard. Here a spirit is joined to its body,
and there another spirit is joined to an
other body, and millions of departed
spirits are assorting the botlies and then
reclothing themselves in forms now
radiant for ascension.
The earth begins to burn the bonfire
of a great victory. All ready now for
tho procession of reconstructed humanity!
Upward and away! Christ leads and all
the Christian dead follow, Ixittalion, after
battalion, nation after nation, Up, up!
On, on! Forward, ye ranks of God Al
mighty ! Lift up your heads, ye ever
lasting gates, and let the conquerors
come in! Resurrection! Resurrection!
And so I twist all the festal flowers of
this church with all the festal flowers of
chapels and cathedi-als of all Christen-:
dom into one great chain, and with that
chain I bind tho Easter, morning of 1883
with the closing Easter of the world's
history Resurrection! May the God of
peace that brought again from the dead
our Lord Jesus, that great shepherd of
sheep, through the blood of tho everlast
ing covenant, make you perfect in every
good work to do his will.
Rags Spreading Disposes.
The state board of health of Slassachu
setts reports, through Dr. AVithington,
the spread of infectious diseases by means
of rags. Small po is. proved to
have been, n some cases, thus trans
mitted; and more frequently by domes
tic than by foreign rags. Cholera, es
pecially, has been traced to the same
source. i 'There js evidence that cloth
ing from cholera patients, and, possibly,
clothing merely packed in an infected
locality, has, when transported to a dis
tance, and there unpacked, caused tho
disease, thus starting a fresh cholera
focus." Danger is also averred to exist
in the cases of phthisis, consumption and
other diseases; a3 the dust rising from
rags may convey to the lungs the germs
of such diseases. GIobe-Dem ocrat.

It is a well known physical fact, of course,
that the sun is continually on the move. Tho
point on tlio horizon oti which it appears in
the morning is directly opositt to thai
where it vanishes in tho evening. Tho dii fcc

is true of tho averago person traveling v:i the

SCNFLOWER A":n ?i.r.: ":.).
Several species of llowers may be said to bo
guides, in n general way, to tho points of tho
compass. That is to say, they allord u hint
us to tho direction which the sua is in when
that orb may be hidden from view by any ol
ject. Among these are tho sunflower and the
marigold. Thes - llowers generally keep their
faces toward tlio sun when it is visible, turn
ing toward it when it rises, and following its
movements us it sweeps across the horizon
until it disapicars below the western horizon.
If tho direction in which these flowers' faces
Kint oo followed by the eye tho sun will
often tic seen if tho time be during the day
light hours. To be sure, that luminary,
when it is in tho immediate vicinity, usually
makes its presence manifest without the aid
of tho sunflower, the marigold, or any other
member of the vegetable or animal kingdom.
There aro occasions, however, when a knowl
edge of these qualities of the plants named,
may possibly be useful in giving a hint as to
tho direction the sun is in from the observer.
Tho possesoioii of these attributes cei tamly
gives these plants an interest and importance
which they would not otherwiso command.
Of course, when the sun is found the direc
tion may bo traced as before indicated. To
this extent, therefore, the sunflower and tlio
marigold may bo fairly included among the
guides to the points of the couipus.
Tho sunflower, the marigold, and plants of
their class, it may be said, are, in u negative
6cnso only, guides to direction. They simply
lead the eye to the point whero tbo sun is
winn that luminary may bo temporarily
hidden from view by an intervening build
ing, tree, hid or other object, and tho sun's
position being known, it becomes possible to
figure out" tho points. There is a cei lain
flower, however, which is a positive guide to
tho cardinal points. This is tho compass
plant, iLi-st ierson3 who have traveled for
any considerable distanco in Illinois. Mis
souri, Iowa or Kansas, have noticed n plant
producing several steins from a single root,
tho two or three central stems ranging from
four to six feet iu height, bearing upon their
upper extremity bright yellow llowers. Tho
upjier leaves of this plant aro erpct, and usu
ally stand with thciii' edges pointing north
find south. This pecidiai-ity gives it the name
pf polar plant, pilot weed, or compass plant.
Locally, however, it is given the less poet i al
designation of "rosin weed," on account ef
the juico which exudes from it. Its botani
cal name is silphium laciniatuni- Although
most numerous in the tatcs mentioned, the
ror.mas.5 plant is seLn as far east as Ohio and
Michigan, and as far west as the stales lr
dering on the Pacific ocean. Wherever found
it may bo relied on as a trustworthy guido in
locating the points of the compass.
TREES ANQ ROCK3 AS GUIDF.
Trees and rocks are also useful in indica
ting tho cardinal poiuts. Liehens and mosses,
when found on trees or rocks, are densest on
tho north side. When tree or rock stand so
that the sun strikes them during a larger pa 5
of tho day, neither lichen nor moss, generally
speaking, will be found on tho couth side.
The t'iiideucy of these, growths to cling to tho
south side increases in the proportion with
which tho sun is obstructed from shining on
them. Trees or rocks ill a dense forest may
have moss on all sides of them, but even
there the thickest growth is on the north
Bide. Of course the principal cause of this
peculiarity is that the sun rarely strikes the
north side of any large object, and then only
for a short time in the morning and evening.
Mosses and lichens thrive best in the shade
Yhen a tree stands in a. position in which
tho sunlight can reach it through most of the
day the limbs on one side of it will usually
be much heavier than those on the other.
The side upon which the heavy growth is on
is the south side. A rock in a similar position
will be darker on one side than tho other.
The dark side is on the south. In connection,
with the rock it should be under-to.xl that ii
is tho rock itself nnd OQt any of the growths
upoi jt, which is considered here. Tho
mosses which, as before stated, are thickest
on the north side, may bo, when viewed at a
distanco, as dark or darker than the bare
face of the south side will be. But the stone
on the north side will be comparatively light!
colored. Tho branches on tho south side of a
tree are heaviest and tho south side of a rock
i3 darkest for- the same reason that moss is
absent ou the same side of both. The sun
lihines on that side longer than any other.
This is true of tho region north of tho equa
tor all oer the globe, but especially iu tho
north temjierate zona. South of tho equator
