A SIN NOT TO BE FORGIVEN
Br MIME W, CIUMr-KET.
It Is not my purpose to exonerate Allan
Ilalsoy. DouUless ho richly deserved the
punlthment which he brought upon himself,
but his fault at the first was fcrl Inconsiderate
one, and the system of hypocrisy In which he
found himself entangled was entered upon
from the good natured Impulse of shielding
his friend. That friend was Andrew Bteelo.
They had been chums throughout their col-
lego course, but their paths had diverged
wldoly during tho four years which had
elapsed slnco their porting under tho shadow
of alma mater. Bteclo had studied for the
ministry, growing gentler and more melan
choly, narrow cheated and possibly narrow
minded, but always puro of soul and tender
of heart, as ho bent over his books. Ilalbcy,
on tho contrary, had plunged nt onco Into the
world. Ills aim In Ufa was to become n
journalist. Ho could adapt himself easily to
circumstances, and when ho found that tho
highest prizes era lieyond his reach he low-
erod his Ideal and nccouimodntad hlmielf to
tho actual, and at the end of four years was
quite content with what lie would have
spurned nt the outset, a regular position as
jmlplt reporter of one of the leading news
papers. I think n little of my experience would
do you good," ho said to Steele, as they sat
together in tho summer on tlio clover under
tho old orchard trees of his friend's home.
"It would givo you a chance to improve your
stylo, by a comparison with that of tho most
eloquent and scholarly men of the day. It
would broaden your theological ideas, and
glvo you points in composition and delivery.
ii you win suomit 10 talcing a row Hints from
mo I can put you up to a thing or two. There
aro certain dodges that these great guru are
not above using, which aro remarkably kill
ing, and I doubt whether they are over
taught In the seminary. If you aro going In
for divinity you might as well be at the ton
of the heap, a regular doubly distilled D.D.,
and tho pastor of a wealthy city church. I
navo come to the conclusion that tho minis
try Is a better field for a smart man than
Journalism, and I nlmost regret ray choice.
You see you have less competition; nearly
all the brilliant follows take to tho law, the
regular nigs to medicine, the long liended
ones to politics or business, those mistaken
beggars who care more for glory than gold
hang on to nrt or llternturo, whilo only the
chaps without nny jiarticuiar vocation aro
left for the ministry and tho book agencies.
Now don't Hare up. Can't you seo that It is
tho luckiest thing in tho world that it is sol
If you haven clear idea from the start what
you mean to accomplish, you can just sail in
liko a whalo among tho fishes."
Andrew bteele answered quietly: uiou
do not understand my alms. I am physi
cally unsuited to load tho career you have
marked out to.- mo. I havo not sufficient
health to carry out what I wish, nnd that is
to teach the suffering to enduro."
llalsey scanned Ills friend anxiously. "You
do look a trifle used up," he said. "I am glad
I accepted your Invitation to spend a fort
night with you, for I am' going to toko you
in hand. Wo will pass a week or more In tho
woods; hunting and cumplng will soon giro
tone to your mind, us well as to your com
plexion, and you will bid guodby to morbid
self abnegation as soon as you land a four
Hut llaltey found that ho hail a dilucult
task upon his hands. His friend's melan
choly was deeply rooted In a frail physique.
Tho dark woods and mountain solitudes
seemed to increase his gloom. Ho took no
interest In sport of any kind, and it was evi
dent that soino settled trouble was preying
uikmi his mind.
'What is It, Stecler Halsey asked
ono evening as his friend snt moodily
and dejectedly regnrdfftg the smolder
ing embers. "Is there a lady iu tho
caw, or is it money) Out with it liko u
man; tho very tolling of tho nnnoyanca
w ill make it seem less. I'll warrant you that
1'vo been In a dozen tighter places."
"It Is my health," tho other replied. "I
fought for it all through my college course,
but it was of no aw. Two years ago I broko
down utterly with nervous prostration. I
left tho seminary, ami was recommended to
put mytelf under the care of a Dr. Corcoran,
of . It was a most' providential thing.
He took me Into his family and his good wifo
nursed mo liko a mother. I was so weak Uiat
I could only lie still liken little child and
watch tho leaf shadows of the mnple playing
uiwii the waK. I was with them tluiH) months,
and they treated mo like a son. You hure
guessed that there was a lady In tho case.
Before, tho three months wero over 1 had
fallen ki lovo with Mls Corcoran."
"Very naturally and quite the proper thing
under the circumstances. I cupposo Fho
brought you j'our gruel and rend aloud to you,
fanned your fevered brow ami all that. I
only wish such a piece of good luck would ion
"You are quite wrong. In all that timo I
never saw Miss Corcoran."
" 'Whom having not seen I love,' 1 1 used to
repeat to myself again nnd again in those
days. Jtl.vi Corcoran was In Philadelphia
completing a course of medicino which she
had begun with her fatliar. They told mo
that she Was fitting herself to go out as a mis
sionary, and she wishud to make herself use
ful among tho women and to gain admittance
to the harems as a physician, Dr, Coreoran'S
family was a largo ono, tucro wero zithers
staying III tho houso and I was given her
room. I havo never known much about
women, iiml all tho dainty fittings of that
room wero a revelation to me. It seemed to
bring mo very near to her, and, as I told you,
I used to lk) and study one object and then
another, unci It seemed to mo that I could im
agino from them just how sho looked as well
her tastes and mental characteristics.
There was a cabinet desk licslde the window
and tho cimiel in front of it was
more worn than liefoi-o tho dressing
table. That told its ttu-y to begin with.
Tlio decorations of the room wero of an
eastern character, An India shawl was
dnp.il to form u curtain, a Tunisian prayer
ru;; was spread Inside the bed and a Daghes
tau ono in front of tho grate. There was a
Moorish plaque over tho mantel, and boxes
of Jup-im1 lacquer, a bamboo easy chair
from umcuttn, lurklsb embroideries and
scarfs, and oilier suggestions of tho Orient
scattered about. This was not the Indis
criminate gathering of a fashionable devotee
of brie-a-brau; there was a consistent method
In all und it Indicated a fixed punioso. All
tho trend of her mind was to tho east, and
tho lxxks n her small but well selocted
library showed the same tuste. As I im
proved in health I read them through, and
sometimes returnoil to makoa note In answer
to the ienciled queries upon the margin.
Bho had lxn studying Arabic, but seemed
interested in all Aslatla literature, and had
secured everything that could be had through
translations from tbo "Arabian Nights,"
ami the "Koran" to Matthew Arnold's
works, and the poems of Omar, There was a
portfolio of photographs and engravings,
reproductions of tho works of French
oriental painters, views from Dore's Bible,
photographs of Palestine and Egypt, the
bazars of Cairo, the garden of Damascus
nnd tho minarets of Constantinople, and the
library showed that sho bad read and studied
of nil. Bhe was one of those women of whom

"I have never seen her, I went buck
to tho seminary, completed my course,
doing doublo work, In the following year
in order to make np for lost time. But
iu the midst of my work I thought con
tinually of her, I wroto to her, told her
something of the interest with which she had
inspired mo, mid begged to be permitted to
correspond with her. Bho replied cour
teously, giving her reasons for declining the
correspondence. I wrote again and again,
but she would not reply, After graduation

Inclined to treat tho whole matter as entirely
Imaginary, His daughter was still away
from homo, and would remain so for a year
longer. Ho talked to mu vory seriously about
my health, and told mn I was In n fairer way
to ho buried than married, and he should
disapprove of his daughter's becoming In
terested In ma solely on that ground. 'On
homo for a year or .more,' he said; 'rest and
excrclsoj make n sound, healthy man of
yourself; and when you havo dono that,
vomo and soo us again, and I will Introduce
you to my daughter."'
"Why In the name of common senso
haven't you followed his advice?"
"I have done so, Ilalsey, as far as Is possi
ble. I have put myself In training as though
1 wero going to row with a prize crew; but
you cannot realize tho dlfilculties of my posi
tion. I am a minister without a parish, and
so belong to everybody, I have done more
work thu past winter than nny regularly set
tled pastor of my acquaintance, and I have
had beforo my mind always my own person
al, private desire to fit myself for a foreign
field, so that some time If I win Miss Cor
coranand If I gavo up that hojio I should
glvo up everything wo may go out to our
Hfo work together. Wo have n returned
missionary nt Sunderland, and I nm studying
Turkish with him. I want to havo sohie ac
quirements which will recommend Ine to the
la-mi, so that I may not have to waste u year
on tho field In preparation.'"
"You appear to have carried out Dr. Cor
rornn'a advico in regard to rest to the letter,"
Ilalsey remarked dryly. "I wonder you
haven't engaged sonio rabbinical old clothes
man of tho Bowery to Instruct you In He
brow, and taken a dip Into Chinese by way of
"I studied Hebrew at the seminary," tho
other replied, not iiercelvlng the irony in
his friend's remark. "I think I have made
tho most of my opportunities, but now, just
when I need it most, my brain falls mo. I
must preach at Ilamoth Ollcad next weok,
and my head Is in a whirl. I can't settle on
n train of thought, or collect two consecutive
ideas on anything but the unpardonnblosin;
that is upiermost in my mind tho whole timo,
and it was w bile puzzling over that subject
that I fell Into tho state of ruin from which
Dr. Corcoran rescued mo."
"Steele," exclaimed Ilalsey, "you havo
acted like an Idiot If you want to marry
Miss Corcoran and sail away to Joppa, which
I consider n very sensible Idea, as tho sea
voyage would build you up and foreign
travel Is Just w hat you need to top off your
education nnd fit you for a shining position,
a candlestick on a hill and not a city under a
bushel, you know If this is your little game,
I say why in the name of common sense do
you ;ay any attention to side issues) Why
don't you say to RamothOllead: 'Gentlemen,
you may go to Jericho. I have other fish to
"Simply because Itamoth Ollead lies in my
way. It was tho birthplace and early home
of Dr. Corcoran. It was through him that I
received this call. And he writes me a very
pleasant lettor apropos of tho subject. This
is hat ho says:
My Deab Steele: Ie Is a long time since wo
have heard from you, and I trust you have Im
proved the time byla)ing in a good stock of
health. I have some little Influence with' the
board, am la fact their health Insiwctor, and I
tmppen to kuow of a mission which I think you
would like, and for which I thluk you admirably
qi.alifled. I won't ask you to come on an uncer
tainty, as I can arrange for an examination a
little nearer your present residence. The church
at Itamoth Ulleud w ill give you a call as caodl
date lu a few days. 1 have a number of trust
worthy spies In the place and If they send ine a
-rood report of your physical condition (I have no
doubt in any other particular), l win seua yu-u
name In to the board and they will probably
make you a proposition soon, Tbls does not
compromise you In the least, for you need not
accent tlio offer w hen It comes. Before you re
fuse, however, we would like to have you make
us a visit and let us talk over the matter to-
cether. Faithfully yours, Oideon ConcoiuN,
r. S. Mrs. Corcoran unites with me In this In
vitation, and my daughter, w ho heard much of
you anil will be with us, will bo happy to meet
"Thero it is the .opportunity of ray life
slipping from ray hands. If I wero to see
Miss Corcoran to-night I could talk to her of
nothinir but the unnardouablo sin."
"0. come now," Ilalsey replied, cheer-
lngly, "you havo given mo a tolerably con
nected account of tho whole affair, and I dare
say you will make your way with the young
lady. What bothers me is what sort of an
impression you will make on those Itamoth
Gllead farmers as regards health. It's a pity

to know that I am a strong, well man, and 1

"You will bo rested in the morning; it is all

frienl conveyed 1dm homo. On the morning
after their arrival tho sick man had a lucid

dry eyes. "It has come," he sold, "I've
broken down. If I could have held out throe
"You are right, old fellow," nalsey re
plied, cheerlngly; "glvo up to it completely!
let tho disease do iu worst, instead of trying
to fight against it, and it will spend Its force
all tho sooner."
"But I must send a supply to Itamoth
Oilead," ho murmured ; "I promised to preach
for them to-inorrow, and there is no time to
securo nny one elso."
"I wilL,go for you," nalsey exclaimed, im
pulsively, "and read one of your sermons."
His friend was sinking into unconsciousness
again, but he grasped the idea partially and
a smile of unuttorablo relief chased the tor
ture from his face,
"You will take my place," ho said in a tone
of perfect confidence and profound gratitude;
"you will do everything for me lietter than I
could do for myself, 1 can endure anything
In n few moments bo was quietly sleeping.
"I must not betray bis trust," Ilalsoy said to
himself, as he rummaged through his friend's
desk; but the drawer which probably con
tained the sermons was locked, and he could
not Mud the key. He glanced ut his watch;
ho had barely time tocatchtho train. "Never
mind," he thought, "I havo a dozen of good
one by tho ablest New York divines in my
shorthand notebooks. I will read one or two
Hastily throwing tho note books and a few
necessary articles into a hand bag, he set out
for Ilamoth Oilead. The station was merely
a platform in the wilderness. Tho ltttlo set
tlement lay threo miles away, arouud the
spur of Mount Haystack. An elderly man
was waiting upon the platform and shook
hands with Ilalsoy, remarking: "You are
Mr, Bteele, I s'wse. Dr, Corcoran lias writ
ten us all so much about; you, that the wholo
luuish feel as if they knew you, though there
Un'frxme of us that has ever set eyes on you."
Unto this moment all that Ilalsey had in
tended was to explain tho situation, and to
offer to supply his friend's place by reading
some of the sermons with w hlch his short
hand note' book was abundantly supplied.
Now the idea struck him that he might do his
friend a good turn by actually personatinir
blm. Tbo deacon had Just shown nun that
this was possible. Why not do it) His self
esteem told him' that' ho could raako a favor

appeared to him iu a ludicrous light. It
would be another raoy experience of life, and
would tank t good, story tv his Bohemian
club, "The' Free Lauccs.'' fhero was a risk
of detection, but that only added fascination
to the enterprise. His decision was made in
n twinkling, and ho shook hands with the
deacon with quite a ministerial air,
"I nm going to takb' you to our house," tho
deacod remarked, as h led Ilalsey to bis
horso nnd buckboard, which wero bidden ins
group of sycamores at a little distance from
the track. "You seo it rather tires the doc
tor to have company put up at tho parson-
"I nm glad of that," thought Ilalsoy, won
dering how he could havo stood the two days'
scrutiny of a doctor of dlvlntt, nddlng
aioudl "I am sure I sliall enjoy myself with

and it had 6nly been a pcrfecUy safo iuvost-,
ment of a little spore cash, but people hors
could not understand this, nnd It was Just as
well to suppress its glitter for tho present.
Ho was glad that he had chosen a black iieck

ful that ho had not thrown away his lastf
white one after wearing it to Mrs. Delano's
german at Narragansett pier.
Tho good deacon wan -"evidently pleased
with the young man's deference in asking his
opinion, and he1 gave it1 liberally. "We all'
think o sight of the old 'doctor," he sald; "ll'
almost more than somb 'bf us 'cart bear to'
think of his being set aside from this pulpit
The mort yoU cah shbw'tLe iieople Hint you

In his pulpit on Sunday, and of course you
will ask him to make tho longest prayer,"
"All of them, all of them," Ilalsey ex
clalmedj'eagi'rly: He'liatl not before consid
ered tho contingency of being obliged to ad
dress tho Supremo Being in mock devotion,
nnd bo was glad to be relloved from this act
"I suppose you've not been ordained yet,"
the deacon continued, "nnd it will be tho doc
tor's part to pronounce tho benediction. Any
other little attentions which you can show
him will Ijetter your chance with this
congregation." The deacon seemed to
tako It for granted that Ualsey's su
preme aim iu life was to settle
down' as assistant 'preacher In this obscure
town, and the young man laughed inwardly,
scornfully" reviling- the notion ( while he rei-
plied with the utmost deference,'! win en
deavor to bear your advice in mind."
Thoy passed scattering farms, and on one
of these the deacon pointed out a man clad in
russet blue overalls, faded blue shirt and flap
ping straw hat, who was engaged in breaking
a yoke of oxen, as an important magnate in
the church. "That," said he, "is Brother
Slocumbo,. He wis 'a Methodist before he
joined onr- communion,- nnd there's nothing
now that he likes better than a rousing
camp meeting. He's a hard worker, nnd gen
erally sleeps through 'the morning servico,
but ho gets considerably refreshed in mind by
evening, and he can be depended upon to oc
cupy tho time if he's wanted. He's fond of a
pretty lively kind cf preaching, with a good'
deal of thrashing around. Tho doctor's get
ting too weak lunged for him. Ho likes to
have a minister come out strong on everlast
ing punishment and the danger of falling
from grace, and, when a man preaches he
wants blm to preach all over."
ilalsey made a mental memorandum to
givo to Brother Slocumbe ono of tho strong
est sermons he 'could find the next' evening,
and he listened eagerly for further' sugges
tions. "We'vo a sprinkling," said the deacon,
"I'm thankful to i say it's only a srprfnkllng,
of folks who think more of culture than they
do of religion. The Pearco girls rather lead
hero on matters of education. They' read
German and attend the summer school of
philosophy at Concord. When they don't
find fault with tho minister we all take It for
granted that he's so mo: It would bo a grand
thing if you could 6how them that you know
as much as they do, but you dont look as if
you wero' equal to it, and you needn't put
yourself out for them. There are tho Rogerses,
Who used to be Episcopalians; they'll bo
bothering you about a responsive exercise,
but don't you givo in; we've fit that for five
years, it would cost too much to get It
printed, it's too much trouble to get used to,
and it looks like going over to Rome."
Ilalsoy rubbed his forehead thoughtfully.
Should ho give the Misses Pearco one of
Felix Adler's lectures before the Society of
Ethical Culture or ono of Joseph Cook's dis
quisitions! If the Rogers family held the
traditions of Mother Church he thought he
could slip in a selection from Cardinal Mo
Cloakey which would please them.
Their ride was over, and tho deacon's wife
greeted them cordially and welcomed them
to a hot supper of fried chicken, "riz" bis
cuit and green tea. At tho close of tho re
past tho deaoon'remarked, "There's a prayer
meeting appointed for to night at our house.
It isn't very well attended generally, but
curiosity may bring some few out to seo
"A prayer meeting I Consternation," was
Halscy's thought. "What shall I dot"
What he said was: "I supposo tho doctor
will come and lead tho meeting,"
"Tho doctor's a-comlng," tho doacon re
plied; "that's his buggy coming up the hill."
A well worn and dusty chalso stopped
at the gate, a venerable man alighted,
accompanied by a sprightly young lady, who
sprang nimbly to the ground, making only a
good natured pretense of accepting the assist
ance of the -ourtoous old gentleman. Ilalsoy
was Introduced at the door nnd received the
goal minister's rather formal and priestly
beuedictiou with a feeling something like
that of shame. He turned for relief to the
young lady, to whom the doctor motioned
him with a wave of tho hand and the rather
unsatisfactory introduction, "My niece,
Orient," What was he to call her) Nothing
for the present, since they wero not upon a
footing which would permit tho use of her
Christian name; hot as he glanced at her
bright attractive face with its mischievous
smile, be felt that an intimacy which such n
form of address would indicate with a lo
witching little personage like this would do
much to roconcile a man to oven this desert
solitude. She bad a bright, intelligent coun
tenance, made piquant remarks, was quick
at repartee, and was as completely at home
and unembarassed in his society as a city
belle. In chatting with her ho quite forgot
to prepare his thoughts for the coming ordeal
of the prayer meeting. The peoplo began to
gather, Tho deacon introduced Brother
Slocumbe who had exchanged the overalls
for his store clothes, but about whose fresh
tallowed cowhide boots the scent of the
stable still lingered. Tho Pearco girls camo
attended by a lantern and a dog. They wero
very plain, and not at all young. Ilalsey
thought discourteously tliat it tho lantern
flamed brlghUy enough to display their facoa
tho protection of tbo dog was entirely un
necessary. The deacon's wife brought in
lamm and a few well thumlx-d hymn books.
Tlio deacon roused Ilalsoy from bii pleasant
coat with tho remark, "I guess all's como
that 'a coining-" and the doctor, banding htm
a Bible, insisted that be should tako charge
of the meeting.
"Will some ono select a hyninP hoaskod in
fear and trembling, and ono of thu Missee
I'oarco started "Sweet Hour of Prayer." At
IU closo he read a chapter from ,tho Gospel
chosen quite at random. Having clotsxl tho
Bible ho railed upon the doctor to lead in pray
er, and endeavored during its slow progress
to evolve soma' train of thought tultublo to
tho. occasion. Suddenly tho story of Blind
Bart Imams, w hlch hu had just read, suggested
a sermon of Henry Ward Beecher's, His
short hand report book was in his pocket
and fortunately, tho notes wero legible.
Before tho doctor had reached "Amen" ho
hod selected two pages, had read them over

giving utterance td something entirely his
own. As he bogah ho noticed that tho eyes
of tlio doctor's niece were fixed upon him as
though in anticipation of keen enjoyment.
"Ho is going to get Into a muddle," they
seemed to say; "my attention will odd to his
embarrassment, and I am going to bo very
nice and atter.tlT-),,
Ilalsey spoke fiemtly and saw her air of
amused superiority fade into one of blank
wonder, which said plainer than any words,
"I have made n mistaken estimate of this
young man's abilities; he is not such a ninny
as he looks."
After speaking for twenty minutes, Ilalsey
apologized for occupying so much Ume, gave
out another hymn and called upon the dea
con and Brother Slocumbe to fill the remain
ing minutes with prayer and exhortation.
At tho closo of tho meeting the doctor
shook hands with him,- with genuine appro
bation. "Tho Lord has committed a great
talent to your trust, my son," ho said to hlni
in the dusk, as Ilalsey helped him into hi
conveyance. "Go not out to the battle In
your own strength. Remember tho ndmou.
Iti-in of the King of Israel, 'Let not him that
girdeth on his harness, lioast himself as he
that putteth It off,' " His niece was rhycr than
sho had Iwcn beforo the meeting, Evidently
she was' impressed with Hnlsoy's sujierior
abilities, ami tho young man's heart swelled
with elation. As he returned to tho house
the Misses Pcarce wero Just leaving with their
smoky lantern, and be could do no less than
offer to soo thom home. The way was long
and It was pitchy dark when ho returned,
but the eldest Miss Pearco had Insisted on his
availing himself of her lantern. ''You ran
give it to me at church to-morrow," she
said, "and you will rarely fall Into,
the' brook without It," As there' really
seemed some probability of this. Halscy took
the lantern, at tho samo time reproaching
himself for his politeness. The deacon had
told him so much of tbo plain and simple
minded character of his hearers that ho de
termined to avoid all flights of oratory, and
to give his audience a sermon as full of com
mon 6cnse as could be found in his collection.
A lecture by the Rev. Robert Collyor
struck him as most likely to be popular. It
abounded In incidents of country boys com
ing to high positions by unremitting toll and
determination. He read the lecture well,
with much of the hearty manner in which it
was originally delivered, for ho was a capital
actor in amateur theatricals, and was accus
tomed to amuse his friends' by giving "per
sonations" of tho different publio men with
whom he was familiar. While in the full
flight of successful oratory, while he felt that
every eye in tho house was fixed upon him,
und that perhaps no one present hod ever
heard more effective speaking, his eye
which ran beforo his tongue, dlscov-'
ered a danger in the path. Mr,
Collyer spoke of his own early ex
periences, of the cottago iri Yorkshire with
its floor so white that'you might havo' eaten
your djnuer from it, with no harm to any
thing but tho floor; and Ilalsey in his
anxiety to escape tbls trap fell into a worse
ono, for skipping the description of his Eng
lish childhoxl, ho launched inconsiderately
into particulars of his thirst for stndy nnd
reading as a yonth, hoW'The Pilgrim's
Progress" and ono or two other books were
the constant companions of the forge. Ual
sey's white and shapely hands hardly carried
out the assertion that he had been trained to
a blacksmith's trade; but his hearers did not
stop to consider this. They accepted what
be said' as truo, nnd llstedcd to the bravo,
earnest words with kindling enthusiasm.
Ilalsey finished his sermon In an agony of
apprehension. He wiped away the beads of
Inspiration from his forehead, and during
tho singing of tbo last hymn regarded tho
congregation furtively from behind his
handkerchief, expecting in soma faces
at least to read scorn and denun
ciation. Instead of this there was
look of pleased surpriso and ad
miration on every countenance. He
turned slowly to the right, whore tho choir
sat. There, too, an open eyed and open
mouthed delight was everywhere displayed.
Thero was one face, however, which he could
not see, though ho would have given much to
havo known its expression. The doctor's
niece sat at tho cabinet organ, with her back
toward htm a lithe, willowy figure, using
the pedals with vigor and the stops with a
freedom and grace which betokened more
skill than was usual with tho organist of a
country choir. Her auburn' hair was knotted
in a loose, abundant mass on her dellcato
neck. Her bonnet was a dainty creation,
with a decidedly Parisian air, and her hands.
though ringless, were exquisitely modeled.
lake her to the city," Ilalsey thought, "anil
no ono would detect her country training."
Then came a swift conviction that this was
no rural maiden; everything combined to in
dicate tho influence of tho city. Yes, he was
in dancer or detection, and It was from Oils
quarter that he must guard against it
ifter the close of service tho superin
tendent of the Sabbath school was intro
duced, and Ilalsey was invited to take
the Biblo class. He found himself con-
fronted by three seats full of whispering and
giggling young misses, who relapsed into ap
parently awe struck silence upon his intro
duction. Prominent among them were the
two Misses Pearco, nnd Halscy remarked In
considerately: "I havo brought your lantern.
as you suggested. It is behind tho outer
door." Ills announcement was greeted by a
violent blush on tho part of tho older Miss
Pearco, and a giggle from her sister, which
started a subdued titter throughout tho en-
tiro class. Ilalsoy dimly perceived that Miss
Pearce looked uikmi his attendance ution her
tho night liefore as a roinu-'itic secret, which
lus too publio return or the lantern had
thoughtlessly divulged. After the ojieuing
uymn the doctor s nlcco loft tho organ and
took her seat beforo him. The look of sur
priso and shy appreciation which ho had
thought he had discovered in her face tho
night licforo, had given place to
puzzled doubt, a grave wonder which
showed tliat something in tho morn
ing's sermon hail troublod her. nalsey'a
glance fell before her earliest one ho
could not confront thoso questioning, truth
loving eyos. Tho lesion of the day told of
tho early inhabitants of Canaan. As they
read tho text he oskcsl himself what he knew
or could tell them of the Glrgashites, tho
Amalekitea, the Perizzltes, tho Hlttites, tho
Amorites, the III Vitus and the Jebusites. At
tho closo of tho reading the doctor's nlcco
asked a question: "The Biblo Dictionary savi
that tho descendants of these tribes nro the
Bedouin Arabs. Will you tell us something
nt your experience among tnemf"
"Who told you that I havo had any such
expertonccsr ho asked, smiling, whilo a fear
of detection seemed to numb all his facul
"In your very interesting talk at prayer
meeting last evening you described tho Jeri
cho road, and incidentally referred to the
Bedouins in a way only possible to one who
hml seen both."
Ilalsoy breathed more freely, IIo
thought he could explain all satisfac
torily, though It -was certainly unfortun
ate that he had given Mr, Beecher's
description of tho Jericho road in tho words
of an eye witness. "My Palestine tour was
a very meager one," ho apologized. "It was
only ono of Cook's vacation tickets. I cannot
presume to any deep knowledge of the man
ncrs and customs of tho Orientals," and then
as he had recently read Bayard Taylor's
"Land of tho Saracen" and Warner's "In the
Levant," ho proceeded to givo Interesting de
scriptions of imaginary adventures among
the Arabs. Tho su;erintendent's bell souuded
as be was describing a bazar at Damascus,
end to bis confusion he found tliat he bad not
touched uion tho lesson, or given any ethno
logical information concerning the Jebusites
and tho Girgashttea. Nevertheless, the fact
remained that tho class hod been vastly en
tertained, lie had ascertained, too, by n
roundubout questioning, of which ho was
heartily ashamcsl, that however conversant
the doctor's uleco might be with other cities,
tho hail never been iu New York, except to
pass from tho Grand Central to the Jersey
City depot, and had never hoard any of tha
New York ministers.

to the treatment by his dlsciplos of their.'of
fending brethren, Teter come with tho very
practical question as to tho extent that for
giveness might bo required of him. Hi
wanted to know hdw often ho must forgive!
Clearly ho thought thero was a limit to IU
oxorciso nnd n polut beyond upon which he
could not bo required togo. Nowtho rabbis
taught that threo was that limit Peter,
therefore, doubled that number and added
one to It, and then thought that even the"
master could ask no more. We can smile at
the earnestness of the man, tho darkness that
still shut him in and his struggling toward
the truth. But Just hero, how far how very
far do many of the professing people of the '
Lord stand even In this disiiensation of the
spirit below Peter's "seven timesP
V. 22. lloir heavenly these words are.
Clearly "seventy times seven" 190 times
ars an unlim.tcd number) "Even as I had
pity on thee" is the divino measure. And
until that is raached wo must forgive
freely as we hav been forgiven.
V. SI. Tho whole doctrine of forgiveness 1
Illustrated In this parable. God's forgive
ness of us is the reason why we should for?
V. 21. No doubt these servants were
officers to whom some publio trust had been
confided. And this special one had prob
ably farmed out some portion' of tho 'king's
domain. In no other way is It easy to sea'
bow such an enormous debt could be created.
For a talent of silver would be about $1,500,
and "ten thousand talents" would sum up to
$15,000,000. A talent of gold would, of
course, bo proportionably greater. And if'
by this enormous sum tho master meant! to) -represent
our sins against God, it is most
telling point that this great debtor was found
when "he had begun to reckon." No ex
tended search was needed. Tho proof Uy
upon tho surface. The records of the case at -'
onco rovealed it. Thero was the proof of the
debt And there was no escape from it
And if that great debt represent our sins be
fore God, bow fittingis tho statement, "one
was brought unto him, etc." For this debtor
would not havo come of himself. The king'e
mtengers brought blm. And so in the case
of our sins. The king has many messengers
to bring us into his presence and open bef or
us the record of our sins. And as we J
survey the record, there is no answer to
the question, "Is not tby wickedness 1
groat, and thluo iniquity inflnlter Job
V. 25-27. All these lncldcrts are necessary
to the parable, as illustrating a human trans
action, and are not to be regarded as measure
lug tho divine mode or forgiveness. Two
great truths are illustrated by the para'
hie, i. o
1. There Is no'llmit to the exercise of 'for
2. lie who has received forgiveness from -
God, will always extend it to man.
V. 2S-30. it is a most signiucant point
that it was when the "servant went out," L .
from his lord's presence that he found bis
indebted fellow servant He had no time lor i
such search when he stood before bis lord.':
His own great need occupied him then. But
when ho weilf out from" hUpitsence', ho could
look up tho little matters of his fellow serv
ant's indebtedness to himself. And what '
contrast is hsrel "Ten thousand talents" on
tho one side, and a "hundred pence" on tbo
other. Yet this taking by the throat, this
Pay me that thou owest; this casting Into '
prison how clearly all this tells of one -who"
has no sense of forgiveness in bis own ex
perience. V. 31-Ut. Here again wo nave the human
side of the parable, tho operations of the'
"man king." Beyond question, v. 31 mod
ifies and explains v. 27. Clearly the dobt
that was forgiven could not bo enforced, anil
tho debt that was enforced could nover have
been forgiven. So that the principle heni
involved is tliat the reality of the divine for-"
givenoss in a given case will bo showri by the
reality of our forgiveness of thoso who sin
against us. There is no such thing rs re-en,
forcing tho peunlty of sins that had onco
been forgiven. Tho unmerciful servant was
not troublod by his great debt, lie would
willingly havo mado it larger if ho had not
been brought to tho king. It was only the
penalty that troubled him. And ho whom
that servant represents is the man who
thought ho'was converted when he was'only
terrified, and who had no uso for tho lovo of
God beyond the fact that in somo way it
could savo him from tho penalty of hi sin.
And when ho goes out from tho Lord's pres
ence; when his sense of danger is lost in' tho -
promises of the Uospol, tbo current of his old
nature flows oil as liefore. Why should ho
not have his hundred pence) Why should bo
not claim that which is his duel And so bis
claim to bo forgiven Is proved by tho ruling
spirit of his Hfo to have been utterly without
foundation. Tho principle, therefore, holds
good in every case, that ho who refuses to
f orgivo shows t hat ho himself had never been
forgiven. And now, iu reviewing this para
ble wo learn,
1. Thatthodutyof forgiveness is absolutely
unlimited. How, indeed, can it be otherwise,
if it flows out of what God bos dono for us 1
" Even as I had pity oil thoe," is the divino
rule. Therefore td ono who has been himself
forgiven tho right to refuse forgiveness does
not exist. How can we reach the limit of
our " beventy times beven 1 "
2. Our sins against God aro practically
without number. Is not this just the mean
ing of the ten thousand talents of the parable I
"Wo cannot answer lilm ono of a thousand.'1
!i. The offenses of our fellow men against
ourselves nro, in comparison, insignificant
Viewed In any oilier light, measured by any
other standard, they may bo very great But
tho parable sets the ono over against tho
other; our 10,000 talents, with our fellow
servant's 100 jK-nce. And that comparison
remains. And tho practical operation of this
truth is that because God has forgiven us
wo ought also to f orgivo one another. It fol
lows from this that the power lead
ing to forgiveness is not ono of tho
forces of our nature. It is not native ami
ability of tenqiei'. It is simply and alono
tho sense of God's pardoning love to us, flow
ing out in forgiveness to others. As a neces
sity, therefore, where the senso of that lovo
U absent, that forgiveness cannot appear.
i bad many agreeaue conversations wren
Mrs. Anson Burllngame iu Bermuda last
winter and havo since formed an entirely
now conception of the Chinese character.
Bhe says that the American people only "see
tbe refuse or the Chinese nation. Among all
the people she has met, and certainly Mr.
Uurllngame 18 sumclently traveled, sn thinks
tho Chinese most exquisitely hospitable. The
cultured classes are agreeable and courteous
in the extreme, extending to travelers and
guests all the distinguished attention which
is often rarely to be found here. When living
in China it was, of course, necessary for
themselves to preserve some degree of state
and ceremony, and she depended almost ab
solutely upon her Chinese major domo, who,
although a servant, was nevertheless invalu
able in assisting her to maintain the proper
etiquette and position required. Desirous of
living in the American style as much as pos
sible and of presenting the poople with Amer
ican dishes as well as customs, she often
found it very difficult in that strange cliinaU
and country to procure the material for a
truly American dinner. But this priceless
bead butler of hers was always capable of
ransacking the whole country to set forth the
The care taken of herself and children also
was sufficient to stir her heart with gratitude
even now, Many times Mr, Burlingame
would have occasion to make some Journey
by laud or trip on the rivers, while she would
follow with the children and servants at a
slower ice. Then, when danger of any
kind was threatened, when annoy unoes were
to lie overcome and varied troubles to be
avoided, all was done with strict reference
to her best welfare and wishes witb a spon
taneous good nature and solicitous painstak
ing which gained her affectionate lespect for
the polite and philosophical nation. "You 4o
