One of the Best of Traits It Influence

Tn a late sermon at Brooklvn on
ldness" Rev. T. De"VYitt Talroage
Wok his text from Acts xxviii. 2: "The
Lxbarous people showed us no little
ldness.' He said:
Here we are on the Island of Malta,
another name for Mclita. This island,
which has always leen an important
commercial center, belonging at differ
ent times to Phoenicia, to Greece, to
Rome, to Arabia, to Spain, to France.
" now belongs to England. The area of
this island is about one hundred square
miles. It is in the Mediterranean sea,
and of such clarity of atmosphere that
Mount .Tana, 130 miles away, can be
distinctly seen. The island is glorious
ly memorably because the Knights of
Malta for a long while ruled there, but
most famous because of the apostolic
shipwreck. The liestormcd vessel on
which Paul sailed had "laid to"
on the starboard tack and
the wind was blowing east
northeast and tho vessel drifting prob
ably a mile and a-half an hour, struck
at what is now called St- Paul's bay.
Practical sailors have taken up the
U:ble account and decided 1-eyond con
troversy the place of the shipwreck.
Uu the island which has so rough a
toast is for the most part a garden.
Ki host fruits and a profusion of honey
"haracterized it in Paul's time as well
as noxv. The Quest oranges, figs and
olives grow there. When Paul and his
comrades crawled up on the beach,
saturated with the salt water and hun
gry from long abstinence from food,
and chilled to the b-me, the islanders.
though called barbarians because they
could not speak Greek, opened their
doors to the shipwrecked unfortunates,
kiery thing had gone to the lottom
of the deep, and the barefooted, barc
l.taded apostle and ship's crew were in
it e ndition to appreciate hospitality.
My text finds the ship's crew ashore on
Ma'tn and around a hot fire drying
themselves, and with the best provis

It would take a reed as long as that
whi-h the apocalyptic augel used to

the breadth, the height of that mng

I.'ith. sworn by in the book of Samuel,
minded in the bonk of Psalms, and en

Testament. Kindness! A wonl no

will be well for us to stand around it,

these victims of the sea. "The barbar
ous people showed us no little kind
ness." Kindness! All definitions of that
mtiltipotent word breakdown half way.
iou say it is clemency, l-eniguitv, gen
t r s;ty: it is made up of good wishes, it
is an expression of beneficence, it is a
contribution to the happiness of others.
Some one else says: "Why, I can give
von a definition of kindness- it is sun
shine of the soul. It is affection peren
nial, it is a climacteric grace, it is the
combination of all graces. It is com
passion. It is the perfection of gentle
manliness and womanliness." It can
not K defined. Hut we all kuow what
:t is. for we have felt its iower. Some of
m may have felt it as Paul felt it, on
s Miie coast of rock as tho ship went to
nieces, but more of us have again and
awful stress of life had
either frem earth or Heaven hands
tn'tched out. which ".showed us no
"sttle kindness "
There is a kindness of disposition,
kindness of wonl, kindness of act, and
there is Jesus Christ, the imieronatioii
of all of them. Kindness! You cannot
afford it, you cannot play it a a part;
von cannot dramatize it. Hy the grace
of t.od yon must have it inside you, an
evcrla-sting summer, or rather a com
1 .nation of June and October, the geni
nlttv of one and the tonic of the other.
It cannot dwell with arrogance or rt
enge, or malevolence. At its first ap
pearance in the soul all these Amelek
ites and Gergishitos, and Hittitc and
Jcbusites must quit, and quit forever.
Kindness wishes every body well, every
man well, every woman well, every
child well, every bird well, every horse
well, every dog well, every cat
well Give the spirit full swing and
y-m would have no more need
of societies for prevention oj cruelty
to animals, no more need of protective
sewing women's association, and it
would dull every sword until it would
not cut skin deep, and unwheel every
battery till it could not roll, and make
gunpowder of no more use in the world
except for rock blating or pyrotechnic
Kindness is a spirit divinely im
p, anted, aud iu answer to prayer, and
then to be sedulously cultivated until
it fills all the nature w ith a perfume
richer and more pungent than mignon
itte, and. as if you put a tuft of that
iromattc beauty behind the clock on
the mantle, or in some corner where
nobody can see it, you find people walk
ing about your room looking this way
and that, and you ask them. "What are
vou looking for?" and the, answer,
: W here is that flower?" o if one has
in his soul this infinite sweetness of
disposition, its perfume will overwhelm
. very thing.
Hut are you waiting and hoping for
tome one to be bankrupted or exposed,
or discomfitei. or iu some way over
ttirown, then kindness has not taken
possession of your nature. You are
wrecked on a Malta where there are no
oranges. Yon ar entertaining a guest

TgProof. The most exhausting and un
h healthy and ruiuous feeling on earth is
a revengeful spirit or retaliating spirit,
as I know by experience, for I have
tried it for live or ten minutes at a
time. When some mean thing has been
done me or said about me, I have felt:
"I will pay him in his own coin. I will
show him up The ingratel The
traitor! The liar! The vi.lain!" But
five or ten minutes of the feeling has
- been Sv? unnerving and exhausting I
have abandoned it, and I cannot under
stand how people can go about tortur
ing themselves five or ten or twenty
vears, trying to get even with some
body. The only way you will ever tri
umph over your enemies is by foryiv-
ing them and wishing them all good
and no eviL
In most of such cases I hare already
succeeded, but there are a few malig
nant whom I am yet pursuing, and I
shall not be content until I have in
some wise helped them or benefitted
them or blessed them. Let us ail pray
for this spirit of kindness. It will set
tle a thousand questions. It will change
the phase of everything. It will mel
low through and through our entire
nature. It will transform a lifetime
It is not a feeling gotten up for occa
sions, but perennial. That is the reason
I like petunias better than morning
glories. They look very much alike,
and if I should nut in vour hand a
petunia and a morning glory you could
hardly tell which is the petunia and
which the morning glory; but the morn
ing glory blossoms only a few hours
and then shuts up for the day, while
the petunia is in as wide-spread a glow
at twelve o'clock at noon and six o'clock
in the evening as at sunrise. And this
grace of kindness is not spasmodic,
is not intermittent. Ls not for a little
while, but it irradiates the whole na
ture, all through and clear on till the
sunset of our earthly existence. Kind
ness! I am resolved to get it. Are you
resolved to get it? It docs not come by
haphazard, but through culture under
the divine help.
The kiug of Prussia had presented to
him by tho empress of Ilussia the root
of a rare flower, aud it was put in the
royal gardens on an island and the
head gardener, Herr Fintclmann, was
told to watch it. And one day it put
forth its glory. Three days of every
week the people were admitted to these
gardens, and a young man, probably
not realizing what a wrong thing he
was doing, plucked this flower and put
it in his button-hole, and the gardener
arrested him as he was crossing at the
ferry, and asked the king to throw
open no more his gardens to the public.
The king replied: "Shall I deny to the
thousands of good iconic of my
country the privilege of seeing this
garden because one visitor has done
wrong? o, let them come and see
the beautiful grounds." And when the
gardener wished to give the king the
name of the offender who had taken
the royal flower, he said. "No, my
memory is very tenacious, and I do not
want to have in my mind the name of
the offender, lest it should hinder me
granting him a favor some other time."
Now, I want you to know that kind
ness is a royal flower, and blessed be
God, the King of mercy and grace, that
by a divine gift and, not by purloining,
we may pluck this royal flower and
not wear it on the outside of our
nature, but wear it in our soul and
wear it forever, its radiance and aroma
not more wonderful for time than
wonderful for eternity.
Still further, I must speak of kind
ness of word. When you meet any one
do you saj a pleasant thing or an un
pleasant? Do you te'l him of agreeable
things you have heard about him, or
the disagreeble? hen he leaves you,
does he feel better or does he feel
worse? (. the jtower of the tongue for
the production of happiness or misery!
One would think from the way the
tongue is caged in we might take the
hint that it has a dangerous power.
There are those if they know a good
thing about you and a bad thing will
mention the bad thing and act as though
they had never heard the good thing.
Now there are two sides to almost
every one's character, and we have
the choice of overhauling the virtue
or the vice. We can greet Paul and
the ship's crew as they come up
the beach of Malta with the words
"What a sorry looking set you are!
How little of navigation you must
know to run on these rocks! Didn't
you know Wtter than to put out on the
Mediterranean this wintry month? It
was not much of a ship anyhow, or it
would not have gone to pieces so soon
as that. Well, what do you want? We
have hard enough work to make a liv
ing for ourselves w ithout having thrust
on us iITt ragamuflians." Not so said
the Maltese. I think they said: "Come
in! Sit down by the fire and warm your
selves! Glad that you all got off with
your lives. Make yourselves at home.
You are w clcoine to all that we have
until some ship comes in sight and yon
resume your voyage Here, let me
put a bandage on your forehead, for
that is an ugly gash you got from the
floating timliers, and here is a man
w ith a broken arm. i e will have a
doctor come to attend to this fracture."
Aud, though for three months the
kindness went on, we have but little
more than this brief record: "The
barbarous people showed us no little
Oh. sav the cordial thing! Say the
useful thing! Say the hospitable thing!
Say the helpful thing' Say the Christ
like thing! Say the kind thing! I ad
mit that this is easier for some temper
aments than for others. Some are lorn
pessimists, and some are lorn optimists
and that demonstrates itself all through
everything. It is a cloudy morning.
You meet a pessimist and you say:
"What weather to-day?" He answers
"It's going to storm." and umbrella
under arm and a waterproof overcoat
show that he is honest in that utter
ance On the same block, a minute
after, you meet an optimist and you say:
"What weather to-day?" "Good weath
er; this is only a fog and will soon scat
ter." The absence of umbrella and ab
sence of waterproof overcoat show it is
an honest utterance On your way at
noon to luncheon you meet an optimist
merchant and you say: "What do you
think of the commercial prospects?"
and he says "glorious. Great crops
must bring great business. We are
going to have such an autumn and
winter of prosperity -as we have
never seen." On your way back to
your store youmeet a pessimistic mer
chant. "What do you think of the com
mercial prospects?" you ask. And he
answers: "Well, I don't know. So
much grain will surfeit the country
Farmers have more bushels but less
prices and the grain gamblers will get
their fist in. There is the McKinley
bill: and the hay crop is short in some
places and in the southern part of Wis
consin they had a hailstorm and our
business is as dull as it ever was." You
will find the same difference in judg
ment of character A man of good
reputation is assailed and charged with
some evil deed. At the first story the
pessimist will believe in guilt. "The
papers said so, and that's enough.
Down with him!" The optimist will
say: "I don't believe a word of it. I
don't think that a man that has been as
useful and as seemingly honest for
twenty years could have got off the
track like that. There are two sides to
this story and I will wait to hear the
other side before I condemn him."
My hearer, if you are by nature a
pessimist, make a special effort by the
grace of God to extirpate the dolorous
and the hypercritical from your dispo
sition, lielieve nothing against any
body until the wrong is established by
at least two witnesses of integrity.
And if guilt be proven, find out the ex
tenuating circumstances, if there are
any. And then commit to memory so
that you can quote for yourself and
quote for others that exquisite thir
teenth chaDter of First Corinthians
about charity that suffers long and is
kind, and hopeth all things, and en
dureth all things. By ren, by voice, in
public and in prirate. say all the good
about people you can think of, and if
there be nothing gooa, men agnien
the chain of muscle on the back end of
your tongue and keep the ivory bars
of teeth on the lower jaw and
the ivory bars of teeth on the
upper jaw locked, and the gate of your
lips tightly closed, and your tongue
shut up. When you can speak a good
a good word for some one, speak it. If
you can conscientiously give a letter of
recommendation, give it. Watch for
opportunities for doing good fifty yeart
after you are dead. All my life has
been affected by the letter of introduc
tion that Rev. Dr. Van Vranken, ol
New Brunswick theological seminary,
wrote for me, a boy under him, when I
was seeking a settlement in which to
preach the gospel. That letter gave
me my first pulnit Dr. Van Vranken
has been dead more than thirty years,
yet I feel the touch of that magnificent
Strange sensation was it when I re
ceived a kind message from Rev.
Thomas Guard, of Baltimore, the great
Methodist orator, six weeks after bis
death. By way of the eternal world?
O, no, by way of this world. I did not
meet the friend to whom he gave the
message until nearly two months after
Thomas Guard had ascended. So you
can start a word about some one that
will be on its travels and vigorous long
after the funeral psalm has been sung
at your obsequies. Kindness! Why if
fifty men all aglow with it should wnlk
through the lost world, methinks they
would almost abolish perdition.
Furthermore, there is kindness of
action. That is what Joseph showed
to his outrageous brothers. That is
what David showed to Mcphilosheth
for his father Jonathan's sake. That
is what Onesiphorus showed to Paul in
the Roman penitentiary. That is w hat
William Cowjer recognized when he
said he would not trust a man who
would with his foot needlessly crush a
worm. That is what our assassinated
President Lincoln demonstrated when
his private secretary found him in
the capitol grounds trying to
get a bird back to the nest from
which it had fallen, and which
quality the illustrious man exhibited
years before when having with some
lawyers in the carriage on the way to
court passed on the road a swine fast
in the mire, after awhile cried to his
horses "Ho!" and said to the gentlemen:
"I must go back and help that hog out
of the mire." And he did go back and
put on solid ground that most uninter
esting quadruped. That was the spirit
that was manifested by my departed
friend. Hon. Alexander II Stephen, of
Georgia, (and lovelier man never ex
changed earth for Heaven), when at
Washington. A senator's wife who
told my wife of the circumstances said
to him: "Mr. Stephens come and see
dead cauarv bird. And lie an-
swered: "No. I could not look at tho
poor thing without crying " That is
the spirit that Grant showed when at
the surrender at Appomatox he said to
Gen. Lee: "As many of your soldiers
are farmers and will need the horses
and mules to raise the crops to keep
their families from suffering next win

all this assemblage, and all to whom
these words shall come by printer's
type, should resolve to make kinduess
an overarching, undergirding aud all
pervading principle of their life, and
then carry out the resolution, why, in
six months the whole earth would feel
it. People would say: "What is the

The rflt-ml Court Wecldca Acalnat th
Cherokee Claim to th Outlet-Only t

Guthrie, Ok., Sept- 17 -United
States District Judge Green rendered
his decision yesterday in the famous
Cherokee strip stone quarry cave, deny
ing the application of the Cherokecs
for an injunction and giving the title
of the strip to the government. This
is the worst knockout the Cherokee

insure the early sale of their equity in
the strip and its opening to .settlement.

the case, refers to the treaty of May 6.
