'I will nrlss ami go to my father." IIo
Thcro In nothing llko hunger to tako
tho otiorgy ottt of a man. A hungry
man can toll neither with pen nor hand
nor foot. Tliero has been many an

ally the caraus, tho beans spoken of
hero In the text, wore thrown only to
tho swine and they crunched thorn with
great avidity. Hut this young man of
my text could not got even them with
out stealing them. So one day amid
tho swlno troughs ho begins to solilo
quize. Ho says: "Theso aro no clothes
for a rich man's soil to wear; this is no
kind of a business for a Jow to bo en
gaged In feeding Bwlncj I'll go homo;

I know thcro aro a great many people
who try to throw a fascination, a ro
mance, a halo about sin; but notwith
standing all that Lord Hyrdn and
Ocorgo Sands havo wild in regard to it,
It Is a mean, low, contemptible busi
ness, and ptittlng food and fodder Into
a herd of Iniquities that root and wal
low in the soul of man Is very poor
business for men and women Intended
to bo sons und daughters of the Lord
Almighty. And when this young man
resolved to go home, it was a vory wlso
thing for him to do, and tho only quea-
nun is wnoiner wo will follow him.
Satan promises largo wages If wo
will servo him; but ho clothes his vic
tims with rags, and he pinches thoni
with hunger, and when thoy start out
to do bettor ho sots after them all tho
bloodhounds of hell. Satun comes to
us to-day and ho promises all luxuries,
all emoluments If wo will only servo
him. Liar, down with theo to tho pit!
"The wages of sin Is death." 01 tho
young man of the text was wiso when
lie uttered tho resolution: "I will arise
and go to ray father."
In the timo of Queon 'Mary, of En
gland, a persecutor came to a Christian
woman who had hidden In her house
ior tho Lord's sako ono of Christ's scr
vanta, and tho persecutor said: "Where
Is that heretic?" Tho Christian woman
said: "You open thnt trunk and you
will seo tho horotlc." Tho persecutor
opened tho trunk, and on tho top of tho
linen of tho trunk ho saw a glass. Ho
aid: "There is no heretic here." "Aht"
ho said, 'ron look in tho glass and you
will seo the horottor As I tako up tho
mirror of God's word to-day, I would
that mstcad of soclng tho prodigal of
the text, wo might seo oursolvos our
want, our wandering, our sin, our lost
condition, so that we might bo as wlbo
as this young man was and say: "I will
arise and go to ray father."
Tho resolution of this text was formed
in disgust at his presont circumstances.
If this young man had been by his em
ployer sot to culturing flowers, or train
ing vines over o'rf arbor, or keeping ac
count of tho pork market, or ovrrsec
,Jg other laborers, ho would not have
thought of going homo. If ho had had
his pockets full of money, if ho had
been ablo to say: "I have $1,000 now
of my own; what's tho use of my going
back to my father's house? Do you
think I am going to apologlzo to tho
old raan? Why ho would put mo on tho
limits; ho would not havo going on
around tho old plaoo such conduct as I
havo boon engaged la I won't go
home; thcro is no reason why I should
go home; I havo plenty of money,
plenty of pleasant surroundings, why
should I go home?" Ah J It was his
pauperism, It was his bvggury. Ho had
to go homo.
Some man comes and says to me:
Why do yon tolk about tho ruined
state of tho huraau soul? Why don't
you speak about tho progress of the
nineteenth century, and talk of some
thing more exhilarating?" It Is for
this reason: A man uovcr wants tliu
gospel "until ho realized ho Is iu
a famlno struck state. Supposo 1
should como to you In your homo and
you aro in good, robust health, and I
should begin to talk about medicines,
and about how much better this medi
cine is than that, mid bomo other modi
clno than somo other medicine, ami talk
about this physician and that physi
cian. After a whllo you would got
tired, and you would say: "I don't
want to hear about your medicines.
Why do you talk to rao of physicians?
I never havo a doctor." Suppose I
come Into your house and I find you
severely sick and I know tho medicines
that will cure you and I know tho phy
aiolan who is skillful enough to rauot
your case. You bayi "llring on nil
that medicine, bring on that physician.
I am terribly sick and I want help." If
I como to yon and you feel you are all
right in body and nil right la mind and
all right in soul you hare need of noth
ing; but supposo I huvo persuaded you
that Uio leprosy of sin is upon you, tho
worst of all sickness. 0 then you say:
MJrjiig me mat liulin of tho gospol
Jirlng rao that dlvlno medicament; bring
tue Jems Christ. '
Hut says bomo ono in tho audience:
"How do von nrovo that WU lirn in n
ruined condition by sin?" Well, 1 can
i prone It Ju two ways, anil you may
havo your choice. I can prove it either

statement of God. Which shall it bo?
Yon all say: "Let us havo tho state
ment of God" Well, Ho snys in ono
place: "The heart in deceitful In all
things, and desperately wicked." Ho
says in another place: "What Is man
that ho should bo clean? and ho that Is
born of woman, that ho should bo
righteous?" Ho Bays In another place:
"There is none that dooth good, no,
not one." He says in another plnco:
"As by ono man sin entered Into tho
world, and death by sin: and so donlh
passed on all men, for that all havo
"Well." vnil ;v. "T nm willing ..
knowledge that, but why should I tako
tho particular rescue that you pro
pose?" This Is tho reason: "Thcro Is
ono nnmo given tinder Hcnvon among
men whereby they may lie saved"
Then thcro aro a thousand voices hero
ready to say: "Well, I am ready to nc
copt this help of tho gospel; I would
llko to havo this divine cure; how Bhall
I go to work?" Let mo say that a mero
whim, an undefined longing nmounts
to nothing. You must havo a stout,
trOinondollH resolution like, lliU vntnwf
man of tho text whun ho wild: "I will
nrlso and go to my father."
"Ol" says somo man, "how do I know
my father wnnts mo? How do I know
If I go back I would bo received?" "O,"
says sonio man, "you don't know whoro
I havo been: von don't know liow fur I
have wandered; you won't tnlk that
way to mo if you know all tho Iniquities
I havo committed." What is that flut

When Napoleon talked of going into
Italy they mild: "Yon can't get there;
If you knew what tho Alps were you
wouldn't tulle about It or think of It;
you can't get your ammunition wagons
ovor the Alps." Then Napoleon rose In
his stirrups nnd waving his hand
toward tho mountain ho said: "There
shall bo no Alps." That wonderful
pass was laid out which has boon the
wonderment of all years since the
wonderment of all engineers, And you
tell me tliero tiro such mountains of sin
between your soul and God, tliero Is no
mercy. Then I seo God waving his
hand toward tho mountains, and I hear
him say: "I will como over the moun
tains of thy sin and the hills of thine
Iniquity." There shnll bo no Pyrenees,
tucre smill bo no Alns.
Agnin, I notlco that this resolution of
tho young man of tho text was founded
in sorrow nt his misbehavior." It was
grlof that ho had so maltreated his
father. It Is u Fad thlug after a father
has done everything for a child to havo
that child bo ungrateful.
How flhurjicr tbnn nsorpoat's tooth It to

That is Shakespeare, "A foolish son
is tho heaviness of his mother." That
Is tho Hlble. Well, my friends, have
not some of us been cruel prodigals?
Havo wo not maltreated our Father?
And such a Father! So loving, so kind.
If IIo had been a strangor, if Ho had
forsaken ua, If Ho hud lhigollatod us, if
ho had pounded us and turned us out

of Him; but Ho is n Father, so loving,

Hut I remark tho characteristic of
this resolution was, It was immediately
put into execution.
The context says "he nroso and came
to his father." Tho troublo In 00!) times
out of 1.030 is that our resolutions
amount to nothing because wu make
them for homo distant time If I resolve
to become a Christian next vev ti,n
amounts to nothing at all. If 1 resolve
to boeonio u Christian to-morrow, that
amounts to nothing at all. If I.renolvo
at tho servlco to-day to become a Christ
ian, that amounts to nothing ut all. If
I resolve after I go homo to-day to yield
my heart to (Soil, that amounts to noth
Ing at all. Tho only kind of resolution
that amounts to anything is tho rosolu
tlon that Is Immediately put into execu
tion. 01 but you bay: "I agree with yon on
nil that, but I must put It off a little
longer." Do you know there were many
who cumo just as near as you aro to tho
kingdom of God and never entered it?

wandered very far into sin. They
heard of, him often but ho was always
on tho wrong track. Ho would not tfo
homo. At tho door of that beautiful
homo ono night thcro was a great out

down and opened the door to heo what
was tho matter. It was midnight
Tho rest of tho family wcro asleep.
There were tho wlfo nnd children of

went down to Portsmouth. Tho father I
could not pursue his children; for some
reason ho could not leave home, and so
ho wrote a lottvr down to Mr. Grlllln,
saying: "Mr. Orlflln, I wish you would
go and seo my two sons. They havo ar
rived In Portsmouth nnd thoy are going
to take bhlp, and going away from
home, t wish you would p'ersuado

tried to porsuado them back. Ho por
suiided onu to go. Ho went with very
easy persuasion, beeuuso ho was very
homesick already. Tho other young
man sain: -i win not go. I havo had
enough of home. I'll never go homo."
"Well," suld Mr. Grlflln, "then If you
won't go homo, I'll get you u respect

Years passed on and Mr. Grlflln was
seated in his study one day when a
message came to him baying there was
a young man in irons on a ship at tho
dock a young man condemned to death
who wished to sec this clergyman.
Mr. Grlllln went down to the dock and
went on shipboard. Tho young lnau
wild to him: "You don't know mo do
you?" "No," ho said, "I don't know
you." "Why, don't you remombcr that
young man you tried to par.suado to go
homo nnd ho wouldn't go?" "Oil' yes,"
said Mr. Grlllln, "aro you that man?"
"Yes, I am that man," oald tho other.
"I would llko to have you pray for me,
I have committed murder and I must
die; but I don't want to go our of this
world until someone prays for tno. You
aro my father's friend and I would llko
to havo you pray for mo."
Mr. Orlllln went from judicial author
ity to judicial authority to get that
young man's pardon. Ho slept not
night nor day. Ho went from influen
tial to Influential person until In somo
way ho got that young man's pardon.
Ho eamo down on tho dock and no ho
arrived on tho dock with the pnrdon tho
father came. He had heard that his
son under a tlUgulscd nutno hud been
committing crime and wus going to bo
put to death. So Mr. Grlllln and tho
father wont on the ship's deck and at
tho very moment Mj. Grlflln offered
tho pardon to tho young man tho old
father throw his iirius around tho son's
neck and tho son bald: "father, I havo
done very wrong and I am very sorry.
I wish I hud never broken your heart
I am very borry." "O," said the father,
"don't montlon it . It don't make nnv
