.n appointment with Titus to meet him
i at Necopojis,. saying: "I have deter
. ine4 'tt'ere to winter." Well this Is
f i;he, ejghth day of December and the
..second Sabbath of winter. We have
(.had a few shrill, sharp blasts already,
, . forerunners of whole regiments of
storms and tempests. No one here need3
to be tcld that we are in the opening
gates of the winter. This season is not
only a test of one's physical endurance,
but In our great cities is a test of moral
character. A vast number of people
have by one winter of dissipation been
destroyed, and forever. Seated in our
homes on some stormy night, the winds
fowling outside, we imagine the ship
ping helplesly driven on the coast, but
any wiLter night, if our ears were good
enough, we could hear the crash of a
thousand moral shipwrecks. There are
many pt-ople who came to the cities on
the first of September who will be blast
ed by the first of March. At this season
of the year temptations are especially
rampant. Now that the long winter
evenings have come, there are many
who will employ them in high pur
suits. In Intelligent socialities, in Chris
tian work. In the strengthening and en
cobling of moral character, and this
winter to many of you will bethe bright
est and the best of all your lives, and in
anticipation I congratulate yoi. But
to others it may not have such effect,
and I charge you, my beloved, look out
where you spend your winter nights.
In the first place, I have to remark
that at this season of the year evil al
lurements are especially busy. There
Is not very much temptation for a man
to plunge in on a hot night amid blaz
ing gaslights, and to breathe the fetid
air of an assemblage, but in the cold
nights Satan gathers a great harvest.
At such times the casinos are in full
blast. At such time, the grogshops In
one aight make more than in four or
five nights in summer. At such times
th play-bills of low places of enter
tainment seem especially attractive,
and the acting is especially Impressive,
and the applause especially bewitching.
Many a man who has kept right all the
rest of the year will be capsized now,
and though, last autumn he came from
the country and there was lustre in the
eye and there were roses In the cheek
and elasticity in the step, by the time
the spring hour has come you will pass
him in the street and say to your friend:
"What's the matter with that man?
How differently he looks from what he
Ico!:ed last September." Slain of one
winter s dissipation. At this time of
the year there are many entertain
ments. If we rightly employ them, and
they are of the right kind, they enlarge
our socialities, allow us to make impor
tant acquaintance, build us up in our
morals, and help us In a thousand ways.
I can scarcely think of anything better
than good neighborhood. But there are
those entertainments from which others
v,ill come besoiled in character. There
are those who by the springtime will
be broken down In health, and though
-t the cpening cf the season their pros
.Pcts were bright, at the close of the
season they will be in the hands of the
doctors, cr sleeping in the cemetery.
Tae certificate of death will be made
vtit, and the physician, to save the feel
ings of the family, will call the disease
by a Latin name. But the doctor knows,
and everybody else knows, they died
of too many levees. Away with all
these wine-drinking . convivialities.
How dare you, the father of a family,
tempt the appetites of the young peo-
ji'e? Perhaps at the entertainment, to
sdve the feelings of the "minister or
some other weak temperance man, you
leave the decanter in a side room, and
only a few people are invited there to
partake ; but it Is easy enough to know
when you come out, by the glare of your
eye and the stench of your breath, that
you b2ve been serving the devil.
The winter season is especially full
-? temptation, because of the long even
ings allowing such full swing for evil
Indulgences. You can scarcely expect
a young man to go into his room and
6it there from seven to eleven o'clock
In the evening, reading Motley's "Dutch,
Itepublic," cr John Foster's essays. It
would be a very beautiful thing for him
to do, but he will not.do it. The most
of our young men are busy in offices,
In factories, in banking-houses. In
stores, in shops, and when evening
comes they want the fresh air, and they
want sight-seeing, and they must have
It. they -will have it, and they ought to
have it. Most of the men here assem
bled will have three or four evenings of
leisure on the the winter nights. Af
ter tea, the man puta on hi3 hat and
coat, and he goe3 out. One form of
allurement says, "Come In here." Sa

Is, too many people have too much time

bouquet in the vase on the. mantel,.
or, the evenings being so short, soon
after gas-light he wants to retire any
how. But there are many parents who
do not understand how to make the'
long winter evenings attractive to their
children. It is amazing to me that so
many old people - do not understand,
young people. To hear some of these
parents talk you would think they had
never themselves been young, and had
been born with spectacles on. 6h, It is
dolorous or young people to sit in the
house from 7 to 11 o'clock at night and
to hear parents groan about their ail
ments and the nothingness of this
world. The nothingness of this, world!
How dare you talk such blasphemy? It
took God six days to make this world,
and he has allowed it six thousand years
to hang upon his holy heart, and this
world has shone on you and blessed
you and caressed you for these fifty or
seventy years and yet you dare talk
about the nothingness of this world.
Why, It Is a magnificent world. I do
not believe In the whole universe there
is a world equal to It, except it be
heaven. ... You cannot expect your chil
dren to stay in the house these Ions
winter evenings to hear you Oenounce
this star-lighted, sun-warmed, shower
baptized, flower-strewn, angel-watched
; Oh! make your home bright. Bring
in the violin or the picture. It does not
require a great salary or a big house, or
chased silver, or gorgeous upholstery to
make a home happy. All that i3 wanted
is a father's heart, a mother's heart, in
sympathy with the young folk's. I have
known a man with seven hundred dol
lars salary, and he had no other in
come, but he had a home so bright and
happy, that, though the sons have gone
out and won" large fortunes, and the
daughters have gone out Into. splendid
spheres, and become princesses of. so
ciety, they can never think of that early
home without tears of emotion. It was
to them the vestibule of heaven; and all
their mansions now, and all their pal
aces now, cannot make them forget that
early place. Make your homes happy.
Alas! that old people so much misun
derstand young folks! There was a
great Sunday-school anniversary, and
there were thousands of children pres
ent ; indeedr all- the- Sunday-schooisrof
the town" were" in the building, and it
was very uproarious and full of disturb
ance, and the presiding "officer "on the
occasion-came forward, and In a very
loud tone shouted,-"Silence!" and the
more noise the presiding officer made,
the more noise the children made. Some
one else rose on the platform and came
forward, and with more stentorian
voice shouted, "Silence!", and the up
roar rose to" greater height, -and it did
seem as- If there-would be almost a riot
and the police -have to be called in,
when old Doctor Beaman, - his hair
white as the driven snow, said: "Let
me try my hand." So he came forward
with a slow s'ep to the front of the plat
form, and when the children saw the
venerable man and tha white hair, they
thought they would 'hush up that. in
stant, and hear what the old man had
to say. He said: "Boysr I -.want to
make a bargain with your If you will
be still now, while I speak,' when you
get to be as old as I am I will be asstill
as a mouse." There was not another
whisper that afternoon. He -was-as
much a boy as any of-them.- Oh, in
these approaching holidayslet turn
back our natures to what they were
years ago, and be boys" again and girls
again, and make all our homes happy.
Oh, what a beautiful thing it is to
see a young man standing "up amid
these temptations or city life Incorrupt
while hundreds are falling. - I will tell
your history. You" will move in re
spectable circles ;all. your, days, rand

The glow has gone from his cheek and
the sparkle from his eye, and the purity
from his soul. Down he goes, little by
little. The people who saw him when
he came to town while yet hovered over
his head the blessing of a poor mother's
prayer and there was on his lips the
see him pass, cry: ."What an awful
wreck!" Cheek, bruised in grogshop
fight. Eye bleared with, dissipation.
Lip swollen with indulgences. Be care
ful what you say to him; for a trifle he
would take your life. Lower down, low
er down, until, outcast of God and man,
he lies in the asylum, a blotch of loath
someness tnd pain. One moment he
calls for God and then he calls for rum.
He prays, he curses, he laughs as a
fiend laughs, then bites his nails Into
the quick, then puts his hands through
the hair hanging around his head like
the mane of a wild beast, then shivers
until the cot shakes, with unutterable
terror, then . with his fists fights back
the devils, or clutches for serpents that
seem to wind around him their awful
folds, then asks for water which Is In
stantly consumed on his cracked lips.
Some morning the surgeon going his
rounds will find him dead. Do not try
to comb out or brush back the matted
locks. Straighten out the limbs, wrap
him in a sheet, put him in a box, and
let two men carry him down to the
wagon at the door. With a piece of
chalk write .on top of the box the name
of the destroyer and the. destroyed.
Who is it? . It Is you, oh man, If, yield
ing to the temptations of a dissipated
life, you go out and perish. There Is a
way that seemeth bright and fair and
beautiful to a man, but the end thereof
is death: Employ these long nights of
December, January and February in
high pursuits, In intelligent socialities,
in . innocent amusements, in Christian
work. Do not waste this winter, for
soon you will have seen your last snow
