"I have denounced the infamous false
hiod concerning my dissatisfaction with
c;y Washiiigtou church and the statement
(hut I had determined not to return there.
Relations between that congregation and
myself are. perfectly happy, and the
church has met all its obligations to rue.
Our attendance was larger last year than
ever before, many more people coining

Christ in looked at from au unusual
standpoint. His text is Isaiah ix., J, "His
uaoie shall be called wonderful."
The prophet lived in a dark time. For
ome 3,'X years the world had been get
ting worse. Kingdoms had arisen and
ferished. As the captain of a vessel in
Jistress sees relief coming across the wat
er, so the piopbet, amid the stormy times
in which he lived, put the telescope of pro
phecy t.) his eye and saw TjO years ahead
ime Jesus advancing to the rescue. I
want to show that when Isaiah called
Christ the Wonderful he spoke wisely.
Popular Pictures of Christ.
In most houses there is a picture of
Christ, Sou-etirnes it represents him with
face effeminate; sometimes with a face
despotic. I have seen West's grand sketch
(f the reception of Christ, I have seen the
face of Christ as cut on an emerald, said
to be by command of Tiberius Caesar, and
yet I am convinced that I shall never
know how Jesus looked until, on that
sweet isubbath morning, I shall wash the
last sleep from my eyes in the cool river
of heuveu. I take up this hook of divine
photographs, and I look at Luke's sketch,
at Mars' s sketch, at John's sketch and at
Paul's sketch, and I say, with Isaiah,
I think that you are all interested in the
st'.ry of Christ. You feel that be is the
otiiy one who can help you. You have
unloundt'd admiration for the command
er who ucIjhn his passengers ashore while
he himself perished, but have you no ad
cltration for bim who rescued our souls,
liii'uself falling back into the waters from
which be saved us?
Christ wi;s wonderful in the magnetism
at his person.
After the battle of Antietamwhen a
general rode along the lines, although the
soldiers, were lying down exhausted, they
rose with great enthusiasm and hur.zted.
As Napoleon returned from his captivity
his first step on the wharf shook all the
kingdoms, and 250,(K men joined his
standar.L It took 3,t00 troops to watch
him in his exile. So there have been men '
of wonderful magnetism of person, but
bear me while I tell you of a poor young
man who came tip from Nazareth to pro
duce a tnrill such us has never been excit
ed by au oilier. Napoleon bad around
him the incpiories of Austeriitz and Jena
and B.-idajos, but there was a man who
had fought no battles, who wore no epau
kits, who fcj-andished no sword. He is no
titled man of the schools, for he never
went to school. He had probably never
seen a prince or shaken hands with a no
bleman. The only extraordinary person
we know of as being iu his company was
bis own mother, and she was so poor that
in the most delicate and solemn hour that
ever comes to a woman's soul she wus
obliged to lie down amid camel drivers
grooming the beasts of burden.
1 imagine Christ one day standing in
the streets of Jerusalem. A man de
scended fiom high liueage is standing be
side him, and says: "My father was a mer
chant prince; He had a castle on the
beach at Galilee. Who was your father?"
Christ answers, "Joseph, the carpenter."
A man from Athens is standing there
anrolling his parchment of graduation,
and says to Christ, "Where did you go to
school?" Christ answers, "I never gradu
ated." Aba! The idea of such an un
heralded younj. man attempting to com
mand the attention of the world! As well
some little fishing village on Iong Island
shore attempt to arraign New York. Yet
no sooner does he set foot in the towns or
cities of Jndea than everything is in com
motion. The people go out on a picnic,
taking only food enough for the day. yet
are so fascinated with Christ that at the
risk of starving they follow bim out into
the wilderness. A nobleman falls down
flat I of ore him, nud says. ".My daughter
hi dead." A beggar tries to rub the dim
e from hi eyes, ami says. "Lord, that
my eyes may be opened." A pwr, sick,
panting woman, pressing through the
crowd, say, "I must touch the hem of
his garment." Children, who love their
mother better than any one else, struggle
i get into his arms, ami to kiss his cheek,
and to run their fingers through his hair,
and for all time putting Jesus so in love
with the little ones that there is hardly a
aursery in Christendom from which he
does not takcdne. anyjiig: "I must have
them. I will till heaven with these, for
very ccd:.r that I plant in heaven I will
hare 50 wbitt lilies. In the hour when I
was a poor man in Judea they were not
ashamed of me, and now that I have come
to a throne I do not despise them. Hold

WJuit is this coming down the road? A
triumphal procession. He is seated not
la a chariot, but on an ass, and yet the
people take off their coats and thrrtw them
In the way. Oh, what a time Jesus made
among the children, among the beggars,
anionic the fishermen, among the philoso
pher! Yon may boast of elf-eoutrol, but

Again, Christ was wonderful in his
teaching., The people had been used to
formalities and technicalities. Christ up
set all their notions as to how preaching
ought to be dene. There w as this pecu
liarity aliout his preaching the is-onle
knew what he meant. His illustrations
w ere taken from the hen calling her chick
ens together, from salt, from candles,
from fishing tackle, from a hard creditor
collaring a debtor. How few pulpits of
this day would have allowed him en
trance! He would have been called un
dignified and familiar in his style of
preaching, and yet the people went to hear
him. 'Those old Jewish rabbis might have
preached on the side of Olivet fifty years
and never got an audience. The philoso
phers sneered at his ministrations, and
said, "This will never do!" The lawyers
caricatured, tut the common people heard
him gljdly. Supijse you that there were
any sleepy people in his audience? Sup
pose you that any woman who ever mixed
bread was ignorant of what he meant
w hen he cou.pnred the kingdom of heaven
with leaven or yeast? Suppose you that
the sunburned, fisherman, wjth the fish
scales upon their hands, were listless
when he spoke of the kingdom of heaven
as a net? We spend three years in col
lege studying ancient mythology and
three years in the theological seminary
learning bow to make a sermon, anil then
we go out to save the world, and if we
cannot do it according to Claude's "Ser
monizing," or Hlair's "Rhetoric," or
Karnes' "Criticism," we will let the world
go to pvrditioa. If we save nothing else.
we will save Claude and Blair. We see a
w reck in sight. We must go out and save
the crew aud passengers. We wait until
we get on our fine cap and coat, and find
our shining oars, and then we push out
methodically and scientifically while some
plain shoresman in rough fishing smack
and with broken oarlock goes out and gets
the crew and passengers nd brings them
axhore in safety. We throw down our del
icate ours anil my: "What a ridiculous
thing to save men in that way! You ought
to have done it scientifically and beauti
fully." "Ah!" says the shoresman,' "if
those sufferers had waited until you got
out your fine b' ats, they would have gone
to the bottom."
The work of a religious teacher is to
save men", and though every law of gram
mar should le snapped in the undertak
ing, and there be nothing but awkward
ness and blundering in the mode, all hail
to the man who saves a soul.

You know the process of ingrafting.
You bore a l.ole into a tree and put in the
branch of another tree. This tree of the
cross was hard and rough, but into the

original tree was bitter, but the branches
