JjcVijTalmage took his text from
John- xviii. 37: "To this end was I
born." Ho said:
After Pilato had suicided tradition
says that his body was thrown into the
Tilicr, and 'hitch storms ensued on and
alKTj. that river that his 'body 'was
tali out and thrown Into the Rhone,
' and similar disturbances wept that
" river and its banks. Then the body
was taken, out, and rcnoved to Lau-
sanne, ami put in a deeper jiool, which
immediately became the cchter of sim
ilar atmosphoric and aqueous disturb
ances. Though these are fanciful and
false traditions, they show the execra
tion with which the world lookecLupon
I'ila'tc-lf was before this man when he
-was full of life and power That Christ
was arraigne'd as in a court of oyer and
terminer. I'ilate said to his prisoner:
"Art thou a king,; then?" and Jesus
answered: "To this end was I born."
Sure enough, although all earth and
hell arose to keep him down. He
is to-day cmpalaced, enthroned and
coroneted king of earth and king of
Heaven. "To this end was I born."
That is what he came for, and that was
what he accomplished.
lly the time a child reaches ten years
of age the parents begin to discover
that child's destiny; but by the fimc he
'or she reaches the age of fifteen years
of age the question is on the child's
lim.: "What am I to.be? What am I"
going to do? What was I made for?"
It is a sensible and righteous question,
and the youth ought to keep on asking
it until it is so fully answered that the
young man, or the young woman, can
can say with as much truth as its
author, though on a less expensive
scale: "To this end was I born."
There is too much divine skill shown
in the physical, mental and moral con
struction of the ordinar- human being
to suppose that h "" . constructed
" without divine purp It is impos
sible for meto believe that an3 ordinary
human being who lias in his muscular,

Sf Paul's cathedral is as much a ruin
as tho Parthenon- that such a lieing
was constructed for no purpose, and to
execute no mission, and without any
divine intention toward sotuc end. The
object of this sermon is to help you to
find out what yon are made for, and
help you find 3our sphere, a:id assist
you into that condition where you can
sav with certuint
cranks that may have lived in 3our
ancestral line, and who a hundred
years before 3011 were born may have
lived a st3le of life that more or less

In your father's "house, or the Irrejigion.
Do not bother yourself about what
you cannot help, or about circum
stances you diil not" decree. Take
things as" they .are and decide the ques
tion so that 3ou shall be able safely to
say: "To this end. was I born." How
will you decide k? Ry direct applica

who'is competent to tell 3ou the Lord
Almighty. Do 3011 know the reason
wiry he ! the only one wh) can tell?
Recause he can see ex'crj'thirg between

livino guidance. So we have now in
pulpits men making sermons who
ught to be in blacksmith shops mak
ing plowshares, and we have in the law
those who instead of ruining the cases
if their clients ought to le pounding
shoe lats, and doctors who are the
worst hindrances to their patients' con
valescence, and artists trying to paint
landscapes who ought to be white
washing board fences. While there arc
.'then? making bricks who ought to be
remodeling constitutions, or shoving
planes who ought to be transforming
literatures. Ask God about what
worldly busine&s you shall undertake
until ou are positive you can in
earnestness smite your hand on your
plow handle, or 3our carpenter's bench,
ir 3our Itlackstone's Commentaries, or
vour medical dictionary, or your
Doctor Dick's Didactic Theology, saying-
"For this end was 1 born."
There are children who curb develop
natural affinities for certain st3les of
work. When the father of the astron
omer Forbes was going to London he
asked his children what present he
should bring ench one of them. The
hoy who was to be an astronomer cried
Mit: "I'ring me a telescope!" And
there are children whom 3011 find all
by themselves drawing on their slates

and 3-ou know the3 are to bo draughts
men or artists of some kind. And 3ou
find others ciphering out difficult prob
lems with rare interest and success
and you know they are to be mathema
ticians. And others making wheels'
and strange contrivances and you know
they are going to be machinists. And
others are found experimenting with
Mlow and sickle, and you know
le farmers. And others are
vapping jack-knives or balls
and bats and making something by the
bargain, and they are going to be mer

and the whole scene bewildering with
activities, driven by water or steam, or
electric power, you conclude that the

and on a vast scale. Now. I look at
you, and if 1 should find that you had
only one faculty of body, only one
muscle, only one nerve, if you could
see but could not hear, or could hear
ami not see, if you had the use of only
one foot or one hand, and as to your

Mr. Champion, one of the most distin
guished missionaries in heathen lands,
for 3ear.s wondering who did for him
the Christian kindness, and not finding
out until in a bundle of books sent him
to Africa ho found tho biography of
Hrainerd Taylor and a picture of him,
and the missiouar3 recognized the face
in that book as the man who. at the
watering trough for horses, had said
the thing that had saved his soul. What
opportunities you have had in the

a wide range. O Christian man, O
Christian woman, break through some

God but a particular engagement, and
made in answer to prayer.
And now I come to the climacteric
consideration. As near as I can tell,
you were built for a happy eternity,
all the disasters which have happened
to your nature to le overcome by the
blood of the Lamb if you will heartily
accept that Christly arrangement. We
are all rejoiced at the increase in
human longevity. People live, as near
as I can observe, about ten years longer
than they used to. The modern doc
tors do not bleed their patients on all
occasions as did the former doctors. In
these times if a man had fever they
bled him, if he had consumption they
bled him, if he had rheumatism they
bled him, and if they could not make
out exactly what was the matter they

Ily the advancement of medical science
and the wider acquaintance with the
laws of health, and the fact that people
know better how to take care of them
selves, human life is prolonged. But
do yod realize what, after all, is the
brevity of our earthly state? In the
times when people lived seven hundred
and eight hundred years, the patriarch
Jacob said his years were few. Look
ing at the life of the youngest person
in this assembly and supposing he lived
to be a nonagenarian, how short the
time and soon gone, while banked up
in front of us is an eternity so vast

In the seventeenth century all Europe
was threatened with a wave of Asiatic
barbarism and Vienna was especially
lwsieged. The king and his court had
fled and nothing could save the city
from being overwhelmed unless the
king of Poland. John Sobieski, to whom
the3 had sent for help, should with his
arni3 come down for the relief, and
from every roof and tower the inhab
itants of Vienna watched and waited
and hoped, until on the morning of
Septemler 11 the rising sun threw an
unusual and unparalleled brilliancy.
It was the reflection on the swords and
shields and helmets of John Sobieski
nnd bis arni3 coming down over tho
hills to the rescue, and that day, not
