In the Crst place, I have to remark that
gr-at many of our busbies men feel
ruinous trials and temptations, coming to
them from small and limited capital in
business. It is everywhere understood
that it takes now three or four times as
much to do business well as once it did.
Once a few hundred dollars were turned
Into goods the men-hunt would be his

own bookkeeper; be would manage all
the affairs himself, and everything would
be net profit. Wonderful changes have
come; costly apparatus, extensive adver
tising, exorbitant store rents, heavy tax
ation, expensive agencies, are only parts
of the demand made ,ion our i-ommercial
men, and when they have found them
elves In such circumstances with mall
capital they have sometime been tempt
ed to run against the rock of moral and
financial destruction. This terrmtation of
limited capital has mined men In two
ways. Sometimes they have shrank down
onder the temptation. They have.jieldod
the battle liefore the first shot was fired.
At the first bard dun they surrendered.
Their knees knocked together at the fall
of the auctioneer's hammer. They blanch
ed at the financial peril. They did not un
derstand that there is such a thing as
heroism in merchandise, and that there
are Waterloo of the counter, and that a
man can ripht no brarer battle with the
word than he can with be yardstick.
Their souls melted in them because su
gars were up when they wanted to buy
nd down when they wanted to sell, bihI
unsalable goods were on the shelf and
bad debts in their ledger. The Kioom of
their countenances: overshadowed een
their dry goods and groceries. Despond
ency, coming from limited capital, blasted
them, tubers have felt it in a different
way. They have said: "Here 1 have been
trudging along. I have I n tryi.ig t. be

Again I remark that many of our busl-

there ought not to be any collision. It is
often the case that the father is the mere

ValM of tk Soak
Again 1 remark that a great many of
or bnalnesa men are tempted to put the
ttainnMSt of aunaj above the value of
the oul. It Is a grand thing to have
plenty of money. The more you get of
It the better, If it come honestly and go
usefully. For the lack of it Bicknea die
without medicine, and hunger find Its
coffin In the empty bread tray, and naked
nes ahiver for lack of clothe and fare.
When I hear a man In canting tirade
guint money a Christian man as
though it had no possible use on earth
and he had no interest in it at all, I corns
almost to think that the heaven that
would be appropriate for him would be
an everlasting isjortiouse. While, my
friends, we do admit there ia such a thing
a the lawful use of money a profitable
use of money- let u recognize also the
fact that money cannot satisfy a man'
soul; that it cannot glitter in the dark val-
ey; that it cannot pay our fare aero the
Jordan of death; that It cannot unlock
the gate of heaven. There are men In
all occupations who seem to act a though
they thought that a pack of bond and
mortgugi could he traded off for a title
to heaven, and as though gold would be a
lawful tender in that place where it i so
common thnt they make pavements out of
it. Salvation by Christ is the only salva
tion. Treasures in heaven are the only
Incorrupt il!e treasures.
Have you ever ciphered out in the rule
of loss and gain the sum, "What shall It
profit a man if he gain the whole world
and lose his own soulV" However fine
your apparel, the winds of death will
flutter it like rags. Homespun and a
threadbare coat have sometimes been the
shadow of co.ning robe made in the
blood of the I.amb. The pearl of great
prii-e is worth more than any gem you can
bring from the ocean, than Australian or
Brazilian mines strung in one cananet.

Some of you remember the ship wreck of
the Central America. That noble steamer
had, I think, about !VK) passengers alsiurd.
Suddenly the storm came, and the surges
trampled the decks and swung into ths
hatches, ami there went up a hundred
voiced dealh shriek. The foam on the
jaw of the wave. The pitching of the
steamer a though it were leaping a
mountain. The dismal flare of the signal
rockets. The long cough of the steam
pipe. The hi of extinguished furnaces.
The walking of God on the wave! The
steamer went not down without a Strug-,
gle. A the passenger stationed them
selves In rows to hale out tlie vessel, hark
to the thump of the buckets, as men un
used to toil, with blistered hands and
strained muscle, tug for their lives. There
i a sail seen against the sky. the flash
of the distress gun is noticed; its voice
hoard not, for it is choked in the louder
booming of the sen. A few passengers es
caped, but the steumor gave one great
lurch and waa gone! So there are aorne
men who sail on prosperously in life. All's
well; all's well. But at last some financial
disaster cornea a euroclydon. Down they
go! The Isittom of the commercial sea is
strewn with shattered hulks. But be
cause your prois rty got1 do not let your
soul go. Though all else perish, save that;
for I have to tell yon of a more stupendous
shipwreck than that which I just men
tioned. Cisl launched this world 0,1X10
years ago. It bus bi-en going on under
freight of mountains and immortals, but
one day it will stagger at the cry of fire.
The timbers of rock will burn, the moun
tains flame like masts and the clouds like
sails in the judgmeut hurricane. Then
Cod shall take the passengers off the
deck, and from the !rtha those who have
long been asleep in Jesus, and he will set
them far beyond the reach of storm and
peril. But how many shall go down will
never he known until it shall be an
nounced one day in heaven; the shipwreck
of a world! So many millions saved!
So many millions drowned! Oh, my dear
bearers, whatever you lose, though your
houses go, though your lands go, though
all your earthly possessions perish, may

everlasting covenant, save all your souls.
"The Scarlet Letter"' Druniati.cd.
our recent plays are mainly taken
from French sources, and an attempt
Is often. If vainly, iiitule to retain their
dramatic effect, nnd yet to exclude that
treatment which makes the essence of
a French work written for French audi
ences. I'lnvs socio often lo be vamped
up for a long run and fur a short life
in the higher koiiso of dramatic life. We
also froitieniIy adapt novels, mostly
of a melodramatic character, for the
stage, tine pregnant instance may

shade of Injured Hawthorne! A very
fine narrative, which depends Uhiii psy
chological analysis, cannot well be
made Into a good drama. Ac tion Is so
much coarser than thought, that the
morbid pathology of a story of passion,
guilt and sorrow, with every motive dis
sected nnd every character analyzed,
becomes ft mere cotnmonpbiee adultery
and a very ordinary melodrama.
Hawthorne Is to be rend, not seen.
His power consists In analytical study,
anil bis line essence escapes the real
ism of the stage. That which Is left for
noting Is the more residuum, the vile
body, of his delicate, almost supor
subtlc conception. He Is a grout au
thor, but tint mi essentially dramatic
one. Ills method escapes the acting
drama. A playwright who would deal
with the "Scarlet Letter" should not
attempt to ilramntl'.e the novel, but
should treat It as Shakespeare used the
chronicles of linker or of Hollnshed.
The work should merely auggest to the
