" 'Faith' Is tho biggest word Inhe lexi
con of a Christian, it is the counter
sign that admits you to tho inner circle of

to a man of faith. The man of faith is

They want to see what thoy havo on hand

lots of foolish things Impulsively, That
Is why they had been tramping 40 years
and never reached tho Promised Land!
If they had all been as level-headed as
Moses, Caleb and Joshua, their Journey
Would have ended In 30 days, and here
they had been a generation In reaching
the place where they novvstood! And it
was alt becausbthey haefnot tried to get

a. zigzagger. And for every inch of head
way he goes a mile! Without a definite
aim he will never travel in an air line,
Tho bee goes straight only when flying to
Its hive. The. man who turns the world
upside down does it because that is his
sole business in life. The man who under

"Tho Christian life needs to bo entered
upon as thoroughly and definitely as the
sun-browned pilgrims went Into Canaan.
Lrt a. man get his start in that way, and
he will not throw away his Blblo when
ho strikes a hard place! Tho men who
had wandered aimlessly are at last
brought to tho place where they expected
great things from the God who had
brought them out of Egypt. The officers
who had gone throughout the camp-plain-spoken
and direct in what they said
were made to understand that the Ood
who had spoken amidst the thunders of
Sinn J had not exhausted Himself, and
that Hevwould astonish them with a
great display of His wonderful power!
"It Is a great thing to discover that God
neves; wears out that He never comes to
a. place where He cannot transact all the
business that is required of Him! Tho
man who needs a great salvation must be
convinced that there is a God mighty to
gava hlmt A helpless man must have a
mighty Saviour, or none.
"Ono reason why somo preachers are not
ablo to bring- many sinners to repentance
Is because they preach of a God so Im
potent that He can only throw down card
houses when all the signs avo right I They
decline to magnify His power for fear
thoy will overdo It? And if they acci

glowing faces of the mighty God of Jacob
nnd what Ho was going to do. Thoy were

Most of them wero children when they

Heaven every morning for 40 years. They
had seen the mighty hand of God roll
back tho waters of tho Red Sea. They
had seen the waters gush out of tho rock
as tho rod of Moses struck It They had
seen the rod of Aaron blossom and bear
almonds In a night. They had soon tho
cloud of quails como up nnd feed them
until thoy loathed tho meat. They had

with which wo receive Is the same as

"At the time of President McKtnloy'a
funeral procession this country for five
minutes stopped nil work. The railroads,
every factory, the machinery of this land
stood still; the hanker stopped counting
his money; tho merchant quit measuring
tho commodities nnd left them unmeas
ured; the farmer stopped his plow In the
furrow, every student closed his book for
five minutes, and with uncovered heads
wo all attempted to pay a mark of respect
and trlbuto to the man who had tried to
mako this a better nation, and happier
men and women, and children. Wo did
that, and I am glad that we did that, thus
showing to the people Hint wo did not
forget to placa a high value on character,
although wo seem at times to bo commer
cially dazed and drunk. Wo stood still
long enough to testify to tho world that
it matters not to what political party a
man belongs, if he tries to make this a
better nation and mako better homes.
"Seventy-five million peoplo In tho United
States, each giving flvo minutes, would

am glad there Is a Fourth of July when

to the world that we realize at what cost

I am glad there is an Easter, to recall
Him that burst through the bonds of

"You can hear more barber shop, carb
stonc, livery stable nnd barroom theol

In your llfo before. Study your capa
bilities'. Somo one said: 'Kid, what aro
you going to bo when you are a man?'
He said: 'An electrician.' 'Why?' 'Be
cause I llko to monkey with doorbells.'
Study your capabilities. Find out what
you aro going to do, If God Wants you
to be an Iron cogwheel In a machine, tho
sooner you stop being a searchlight and
a whlstlo and be a cogwheel the better
tne mnchlno will work and tho moro suc
cessful you will' be. You might aa well
try to teach a cow the oratorio of 'Tho
Messiah' try to make a silk purse out
of a sow's ear as to expoct you to bo
successful If you start out in life In anv
proposition for which you were not in
tended. The proprietor of tho Waldorf
Hotel in New York used to bo a waiter
at (2 a week. Somo fellows have too
much pride to toko the first Job that
offers. They want to wear a white shirt,
patent leather shoes that's tho kind of a
Job they want, and their mother has to
tako in washing waiting for him to find It.
Somebody said to a boy, 'Kid, how did
you learn to skate so well?' And tho
boy answered, 'By getting up every time
I fell down.' In other words, don't take
lowers! Heart power and singing cannot
be printed In notes. A painted fire will
never boil an egg. Too many choir sing
ers do not know any more about the gos
pel they sing than the town-pump does
about the tnste of water. One of the
greatest needs Is moro prayer nnd less
nonsenso In our church choirs more
praise and less backbiting more lovo and
less fault-finding- moro reverence and
less frivolity moro of desire to honor
God than to give ai concert.
" 'Ye have not passed this way hereto
fore.' "This proclamation was mado that tho
weary sons of Jacob might take a look
back and a long step forward. To stand
on new ground, he makes all consider.
You have never stood where you stand
today. Never havo you had so much be

tne grave. You never have had so much
to bo thankful -for. You never have had
so much to regret. You never havo had
so much to enlighten or disgrace you.
'Thero are times In the lives of all of
us when wo need to havo that thought

TAKE A GOOD LOOK.
"Will you make better use of tho future
than you have of the past? What have
you learned from your mistakes and blun

tho same old sins going to continue to
be the slave of the Bame habits going to
keep on stumbling over the same mines
of opportunity and never pick up a nug

"Go baclc over the winding, aimless Jour

how many chances vmi hnv im n
shorten and straighten your course. You
are standing- on higher ground than ever.
You ought to be able to see farther!
Look back and consider how graciously
God has dealt with you. If you havo
never done any Berlous thinking before,
do some now, Just as the children of
Israel did when they pitched their tents
on tho banks of the Jordan! As they
called up from the past all they had ex
perienced in the 40 years of wandering,
how much better God had dealt with them
than they deserved! His faithfulness in
splto of their unfaithfulness was evident
that He would stand by them all the
way! That was true in their case, and
it is in ours. All these things happened
for our Instruction. The way to find out
what God will do is to look back and see
what God has done. No man can con
sider what God has done without feeling
safe to trust Him for what He Is eclng

"Now, boys, girls, excuse mo for calling
you boys and girls. You are young men

You havo got to have a desire to grow
up and develop. You havo got to feel your

It Is a great deal like watering a horse.

cross-eyed, freckle-faced kid, with a stone
bruise on each heel can ride a horse to
Water, but a college professor with 49 di

doesn't want to drink. We can tax the
people, build schools, build colleges, build
universities, hire teachers; we con give
you the opportunity, but we cannot In
culcate in ou a desire to learn. Building
schools is one thing, education is another.
CHOOSE YOUR COMPANY.
"Some fellow says he will never get
married, but when he meets the right girl,
when some girl crosses his path he will
fall bo dead in love with her that his
heart bone sticks out two Inches, abnor
mally; some girl with eyes like a raven,
hair like the midnight, teeth like pearls
behind lips of coral. And If somo young
follow don't cut him out In six months he
wjll be looking for a flat, and In less than
a year he wjll be tacking down carpet

You need to have a good start Environ

And ho said, 'By not wavering.' Presi
