Text, Daniel xL, 32: "The people
that do know their God shall be strong
and do exploits."
Antiochus Epiphanes, the old sinner,
came down three times with his army
to desolate the Israelites, advancing
one time with 02 trained elephant
swinging tlieir truuks thU way and
that, and 02,000 infantry and 6,000 cav
alry troops, and they were driven back
Then, tlie second time, he advanced
with ;o,0do armed men, aud had been
again defeated. But the third time he
laid successful siege until the navy of
Home came in with the flash of their
long banks of oars aud demanded that
tbesiegobe lifted. And Antiochus
Epiphanes said he wanted time tc con
sult with his friends about it, aDd 1'op
illus, one of the Koniau embassadors,
took a staff aud made a circle on the
ground around Antiochus Epiphanes
and compelled him to decide before he
c;.me out of that circle; whereupon l.e
lilted the siege, home of the Hebrew

of them palsied valorously, as did

ti.l die for it; and others, as my text
says, did exploits.
! An exploit I would define to be a he
roic act, a brave feat, a great achieve

in ne is a sort of hum-drum life. If
had an Antoiochus Epiphanes to ligh

right so far as great wars are concerned.
There will probably be no opportunity
to distinguish yourself in battle. The
most of the brigadier generals of this
country would never have been heard
of had it not been for the war.
Neither will you probably become a
great inventor. Nineteen hundred and
ninety-nine out of every &J.000 inven
Hons round m the patent oflice at
Washington never yielded their auth
ors enough money to pay for the ex'
pe"es of securing the patent. So you
will probably never be a Morse or an
Edison or a Humphrey Davy or an Eli
Wliiiney. There is not much probabil.
it y that you will be the one out of the
hundred who achieves extraordinary
success in commercial or legal or med
ical or literary spheres. What then?
I an you have no opportunity to do ex
ploits? I am going to show that there
are three opportunities open that are
grand, thrilling, far-reaching, stupen
dous aud overwhelming. They are be
fore you now. In one, if not all three
of them, you may do exploits. The
three greatest things on earth to do are
to save a man, or save a woman, or
save a child.
During the course, of his life almost
every man gets into an exigency, is
caught between two fires is ground be
tween two milliitones, sits on the edge
ot some precipice, or in some other
way comes near demolition. It may
be a financial or a moral or a social or
a political exigency. 1 ou tometimes
see it in court, rooms. A young man
has got into bad company and he has
offended the law aud he is arraigned
All blushing and all confused he is in
the presence of judge aud jury and
lawyers. He can be sent right on in
the wrong direction. He is feeling
disgraced and he is almost desperate.
Lt the district atiorney overhaul him
as though he were an old offender, let
the ablest attorneys at the bar refuse
to say a word for him because he can-
uot afford a considerable fee: let the
judge give no opportunity for the mit
igating circumstances, hurry up the
case and hustle him up to Auburn or
Sing Sing. If be live seventy ye rs he
will be a criminal, and each decade of
bis life will be blacker than its prede
cessor. In the interregnums of prison
life he can get no woik and he is
glad to break a window-glass or blow
up a safe, or play highwayman, so a
to get back within the walls where he
can get something to eat and hide him
himself from the gaze of the world.
Why don't his father come ami h
him ? II i talhex. toUd? Why don't
his mother come and help him ? She is
dead. Where are all the ameliorating
and salutary influences of society?
They do not touch hira. . Why did not
some one long ago in the case under
stand that there was an opportunity
for the exploit which famous
in heaven a quadrillion of years after
the earth has wind? Why did not the
district attorney take that young mau
into ins private oflice and say: "My
on I see that you are the victim of
circumstances. This is your first crime.
You are sorry. 1 will bring the person
you wronged into your presence, and
ou will apologize and make all the
reparation you can and I will give
you another chance." Or that young
man is presented in the court room,
sod he has no Mends present aud the
Judge says: "Who is your counsel?"
be answers: I have none." And the
Judge says: 4 Who will take this young
Bum's case? And there is a dead halt,
od no one often and after a wliile the
lodge turns to some attorney, who
jsrver had a good case in all his life,
and never will, and whose advocacy
mold be.enough to secure the condem.
of innocence Itself. And the
iaeotnpetent crawls up
leoaer, helplessness to ree
0rr3t WbM taw ought to be a

profession as lo who should, have the
honor of trying to help that uuf. - rtu -

toruey have received as his fi-e for
suchau advocacy? Nothing in dollars
but much every w ay in a happy con
ciousuess that would make his own
life brighter, and his own dying pillow
sweeter, and his own heaven happier
the counciousuess that he had savd a
man! "
So there are commercial exigencies
A very late spring obliteiates the de
uiand for spring overcoats, and sp ing
hats and spring apparrel of all sorts. J
Hundreds of thousands of people say:
it seems we are going to have no
spring, and we shall go straight out of
winter into warm weather, and we can
get along without the usual spring
attire" Or there is no autumn weather.
the heat plunging into the cold, aud the
usual clothing, which is a compromise
between summer and winter, Is not re
quired. It makes a difference in the
sale of millions and millions of dollars
of goods and some over-sanguine young
merchant is caught with a vast amount
of unsalable goods that will never be
salable again, except at prices ruin
ously reduced. The young merchant
with a somewhat limited capital is in
a predicament What shall the old
merchants do as they see the young
man in this awful crisis? huh jour
hands and laugh and say: "-flood for
liiji. He might have known better
hen he has been in business as long
as we have, he will not load his shelves
that way. Hal Ila! He will burst up be.
fore long. He had no business to open
lus store so near ours anyhow." .Sheriff's
sale! lied flag in the window: "How
much is bid for these out-of-iashion
overcoats and spring hats, or fail cloth
ing out of date? What do I hear m
the way of a bid?" "Four dollars."
Absurd: I cannot take that bid $1
apiece. Why, these coats when rirsi
put upon the market were offered at
815 each, and now I am offered only
$4. Is that all? Five dollars, do I
hear? Going at that! Cone at 5." and
he takes the whole lot. The young
merchant goes home that night and
says to his wife: "Well, Mary, we will
have to move out of this house and sell
our piano. That old merchant who
has had an evil eye on me ever since I
started has bought all that clothing,
and he will have it rejuvenated, anj
next year put it on the market as new,
while we will do well if we keep out of
the poor house." The young man broken
spirited, goes to hard drinking. The
young wife with her baby goes to her j
father's house and not only is his stor0 1
wiped out but his home, his morals
and his prospects for two worlds this
aud the next A nd devils make a ban
quet of tire and fill their cups of gall
and drink deep to the health of the old
merchant who swallowed up the young
merchant who got stuck on spring
goods and went down. This is one
way and some of you have tried it '
But there is another way. That
young merchant who had found that
he had miscalculated in laying in too
many goods of one kind, and been
flung of the unusual season, is stand"
ing behind the counter, feeling very
blue, and biting his finger nai's, or
looking over his account books, which
read darker and worse every time he
looks at them, and thinking now his
young wife will have to le put in a
plainer house than she ever expected to
ive in, or go to a third-rate boarding
house where they have tougli liver and
sour bread five mornings out of the
seven." An old merchant comes in and
says: '"well, Joe, this has been a hard
season for young merchants, and this
prolonged cool weather has put many
in the doldrums, and I have been
thinking of you a good deal of late, for
just after I started in business I once
got into the same scrape. Now, if
there is anything I can do to help you
out I will gladly do it Better just put
those goods out of sight for the pres
ent, and next season we will, plan
something about them. I will help
you to some goods that you can sell far
me on commission, and I will go down
to some of the wholesale houjes and
tell them that I know you and wil
back you up, and if you want a few
dollars to bridge over the present, I
can let you have them. Be as econo
mical as you can, keep a stiff upper lip
and remember that you have two
grieuds, God and myself. Good morn
ing!" The old merchant goes away, and
the young man goes behind his desk
and the tears roll down his cheeks. I1
s the first time he has cried. Disaster,
made him mad at evey thing, and mad
at God. But this kindness melts him
and the tears seem to relieve his brain,
and his spirits rise from 10 below zero
to 80 in the shade, and he conies out of
the crisis.
About tnree years after this young
merchant goes info the old merchants
store and says, "well, my old friend, 1
wes this morning thinking over wha
you did for me three years age. You
helped me out of an awful crisis in my
commercial history. I learned wisdom ;
prosperity has come, and the pallor has
gone out of my wife' s cheeks and the
roses that were there wheal courted
her in her fauier's house have
bloomed again, and my buisiness is
splendid, and 1 thought I ought to let
you know that you saved a man." In
a short time after, the old merchant

One bright afternoon this season at
Xarragansett Pier at lecst a score of
men and women among the promena
ders on the beach have made themselves
noticeable by picking up pebbl s and
examining them critically. They're
only wanted for moonstones A IS'evv
Yorker took his hatful of pebbles to a
shanty oa the pier, which for several
seasons the single lapidary at the resort
has made his headquarters. He had
what appeared to be a workshop at the
back of the shanty. Two assistants
were always at work there, apparently
polishing moonstones. This year a
woman has been manging
the monnstone factory. It was
to her the Xew Yorker displayed
his hatful of pebbles. She looked at
them critically. "Yes, there are several
dozen good stones in the rongh there
that w ill make line moonstones when
cut and polished,'' she said. "Jt will
cost you 81 apiece to have them nicely
finished." Hundreds of women paid
this fee and came the next day and
secured moonstones that they exhibited
with pride to tlieir acquaintances. A
lapidary examined some of the rough
stones to-day and pronounced them
pebbles. "1 suppose the reason why
this swindle has thrived so long," said
he, "is the very natural dislike people
have of admitting that they have been
taken in. The moostone fakir began
his business at New port half a dozen
years ago, and he made a booming
success of it before the Newporters
began to grow suspicious. lie gave
out the same old story at the start that
moonstones had been discovered there,
ind offered to identify moonstones
free of charge. Whenever he identi
fied them he usually got an order to
polish them at SI a cut. He never did
cut them though but probably threw
them back on the sand for some other
dupes to find. He substituted real
moonstones of the cheaper sort that
cost him about 40 cents apiece. This
left a profit of 00 cents on each stone
In the winter months he migrated to
Old Point Comfort, aud the shores
there suddenly became strewn with
other moonstones in the rough. He
got $1 eacli again for throwing them
away and substituting a 40-ceut moon
stone. The yellow pebbles were more
profitable. He called them topazes in
the rough, and he got as high as i for
substituing cut topazes worth 1.5 J for
pebbles. 1 believe this clever fakir
died in Newport three years ago. The
woman who says these pebbles are
moonstones now has succeeded to the
business and is clever at it Chicago
