"Sabbath Observance" was the theme
upon which Rev. N. V. Stahl, pastor of
the Green Ridge Presbeytorfcin church,
preached yesterday morning. He treut
ed the subject practically, cundldly and
In h manner which won the attention
mid Interest of the large 'number of
persons In the auditory. "Call tlu
Sub bath a ddight." (Isilh Ivlll. 12. 13
and 14) hln text. An excerpt of the
discourse Is ns follows:
Like a rude awakening from a beau
tiful di'oam of the nlirht set-niH the ex
perience of the race nine the days of
the Eden tragedy. In the long ago
time there Is one bright gleam; in tlie
coming time thori Is a long unending
radiance; between tho two It Is dark,
dark, oh, so dark. Fur n little while
we are holy and blessed In the full en
joyment of the communion of God. In
the time yet to come wo may bo holy
and hlrsHvd again In tlu full enjoyment
of God to nil eternity. Tills i time
of d'irkneies of conilict and doubt. Tru
ly, the Light has come, but men have
loved darktK'SM rather than light. The
Master says "If a mun walk In the
night, he Ftumbleth." and nil through
the long durknebs ni!n- have been stum
bling a ml falling: some, oh, how ninny,
to rise no more. The path of humanity
has been a path beset by dangers of all
kinds on every hand, and even the
deeH-r the darkness, the greater the
d.iiigt r hath been. While the llrst pair
walked in the light of God's truth they
walked In safety. In an evil day the
ru thirds hind of the temptor put out
this light and substituted the false dim
tapor light of human reason, and In
that flickering, deceiving light, they
stumbled to a fall so sad, so dreadful,
that sixty centuries have failed to tell
the story of Its woes.
Spoko to Tlioin of One l.laht.
It Is my purpose today, after having
called your aKntlm to that wonderful
circle of lights which God has hung
round the horizon to Illumine earth's,
night of sin and woe. to speak to you
of one light which has a special, a pe
culiar, a wonderful function. A func
tion which c tnnot bo too greatly mag
nified ami which the present generation
Is all too prone to neglect. The especial
nlllep of this light Is to direct our
thought and att"iilin to all the other
lights. The Lord ordained that time
should be divided into periods of sewn
days, and one of ihvt days He set
apart as holy time, sacred to Himself,
In which day man mu?t cease from all
his ordinary labors and turn aside from
hte accustomed paths and direct his
mind from his usual thoughts and occu
py himself with the things pertaining
to God. to his own soul, and to his
eternal dertiny. Hut this was not all.
In providing for man's higher nature
Jid was aNo providing for all parts of
his being. The Hnbbath was designed
not only to be a day for occupying our
selves with the interests of the soul; it
was Intended aim to be a great day of
rest, of recuperation, of upbuilding for
all the faculties and pover3 of man's
Now, my friends. th question of tha
value of the Sabbath day and the ques
tion of our obligation to observe it ns
unto the Lord are matters to be studied
net by reference to our own views, but
by reference to God's views chiefly ns
expressed in the bible. I do not say
no voice on tha subject comes to us
from nature, but while I behove that
God has In a manner written His law
in man's nature, which Is shown by
experience to need the Sabbath, yet
God's views are to be obtained chlelly
from HI revelation, which we call the
Holy Scriptures. The tioly day comes
into prominence in the history of Israel,
In Jehovah's commands and In he
church of God. Now If It be In anywise
thought or said by any that the Sab
bath was merely a Jewish institution;
besides otVr arguments, it Is sufTlclent
to remember that our Lord who came
to Inaugurate the Gospel dispensation
for the world, erected the apostolic
college-, established the Christian
church In Its new llfo, issued his perma
nent communion to preach the Gos
pel to all nations and promised His
Spirit to guide into all truth. And
these apostles and this church under
the guidance of the Spirit changed the
Sabbath from the seventh to the first
day of the week to commemorate the
great fact of the Resurrection and
taught the permanent obligation of. the
Lord's day to the world.
How toOhsorve tho liny.
How Is the Sabbth to he observed?
In the first place It is to be s-t apart
as God's day. Six days are In a sense
our own time, this one day Is God's.
Now what does God require us to do
with His day? We must do something
with it, we can't Just It alone and say
this Is God's day. We can't pass over
the clay to Monday. The day comes
every revolution of the earth on its
axis and it stays twenty-four hours.
We must live th-se twenty-four hours,
we must spend them eating or sleeping
or visiting, or doing business, or
amusing ourselves, or worshiping God
and training our children In his fear, or
In some way we must pass the time.
Now Owl says we must turn away our
foot from doing our own pleasure on
Hie day and set It apart for His wor
ship and service.
Now the views of this church upon
the subject before us are carefully
drawn from the word of God, an fol
lows: "The Sabbath or Lord's day Is
to be sanctified by an holy resting all
that day, not only from such works as
are at all times sinful, but even from
such worldly employments and recrea
tions as are on ottwr dnys lawful, mak
ing It our delight to spend the whole
time (except so much of it as Is to be
taken up In works of necessity nnd
mercy) In tho public operate exercl'ies
of God's worship. And to that end we
are to prepare our hearts, and with
such foresight, diligence and modera
tion to, dispose and seasonably dispatch
our worldly business that we may be
the more free of It for the duties of that
day." And let me say, brethren, that
without taking up the time of the con
gregation In eo doing, I will furnish
to any of you who may request It, the
Scriptural authority for this summary
of duty In regard to tli observance
of the Lord's day. Now this Is to my
mind an excellent presentation of an
Idpal observance of the Sabbath. And
If it be an Ideal observance then It must
be your standard.
Hut the difficult subject remains of
the application of th!a general rule to
the special ca3es of our real Sabbath
life. Whit are we really to do, and not
to do? Now, then, to be practical, the
proper observance of the Sabbath be
gins on Saturday; I, e., we are to make
such arrangements on Saturday as may
be necessary to enable ourselves, our
children, and our servants, and our
cattle to keep the Sabbath day. holy.
Then you must settle when your Sab
bath Is to begin and md. I believe
God claims twenty-four hours, and that
the Sabbath begins and ends when
every other day begins nnd ends at 12
o'clock midnight. I do not consider
any one at liberty to do anything at
2 o'clock Saturday night (speaking in
ordinary terms) which ho would not
do at 2 o'clock Sunday afternoon.
We Wuko in God's Time.
Now, then,, when we wake In the
morning, we wake up in God's time..
May we He later Sunday morning than
other mornings? Why, It Is plain to
my mind that If the labors of tho week
require hard work and early hours, a
little extra rest Sunday morning, which
docs not in any way or to any degrue
Interfere with preparations for God's
work and wui-Hhlp, may be the xery
best way of preparing ourselves for a
protltablo uao und enjoyment of His
Now, then, what are we to do with
our waklm;' hours. Why we nre to
alwtnln from unnecessary work, do
deeds of mercy as God's providence
may cull us to them, and, chlelly, we
ure to worship Him. This worship will
consist of private family and public de
votions, reading such books and other
matter ns direct our thoughts, toward
God und His service, and Ills provi
dence. In such conversation us may In
its general tendency direct our
thoughts In the same lines, and In per
sonal meditation. If I may use the term,
upon such like lines of thought. As to
public worship, 1 think It is very clear
that Cliilstlan; ought ns a rule to at
tend both services of the church, of
which they are members.
Now, what should the home life be
durln;r the Sabbath? This question has
been answered as to adults. Possibly
1 can, In a measure, answer It ns to chil
dren. It seems to me that before chil
dren reach the age of moral responsi
bility, suc h moderate and quiet recrea
tions a .4 mituiv first tenches them ought
not to In forbidden, but that some dlf
fercnctH between the recreations of
wiek days and those of the Lord's day
ought fo bef arly Instituted, nnd as they
advance in years and moral sense and
understanding th rules for adult ob
servance of th" day ought to be grad
ually upplied. Hut the very best way In
which children can be managed Is by
itip'.ercptlng th"in through reading and
conversation in matters pertaining to
God. ills loving care over them nnd the
return which they can make for His
goodness. In my own Judgment chil
dren from un early rise ought to be
take to one service and tho whole fam
ily should sit together nml together
worship their God and hear and study
His holy work.
Work to lo Any Work.
It Is wrong In Itself nnd In relation
to our servants to make special work
for the Sabbath either In having elab
orate and troublesome time taking re
pasts or In entertaining guests upon
that day, or in imposing any unneces
sary work. It is wrong to work our
horses or other animals on this day of
rest either for our business or our
pleasure. Spurjroon, living out of Lon
don and requiring his horses to convey
him to his Sabbath work, never al
lowed them to be driven on Saturday,
making this their day of rest.
You will see how running street cars,
except If neeessaryatcertaln hours; Sun
day trains, save for perishable goods on
long routes, the publishing, selling and
reading or encouraging by buying and
advertising of Sunday newspapers, thj
sale of liquors or other unneeded arti
cles, the arrangements for pleasure
parties and all such like things are
plainly and entirely wrong, a trans
gression of God's law and a violation of
the rights of man, and those who parti
cipate In them or In anywise encour
age them nre breaking the Sab
bath day nml bringing evil on their
own souls and the community and
country In which they live. The power
of law nr.d th still more tremendous
power of public srntlment ought to
abolish these things and maintain th
blessings of the Christian Sabbath. If
you are In any doubt on any point, you
mupt give God Hie benefit of the doubt,
and keep holy Ills day.
Oh for a spirit toward G'kI and His
ordinance s; oh, for a reverence and
love for His holy dny. Let us guard
the Sabbath In which we especially
study of God in a sense the light of

France. In the chaos of her national and
individual life when she had cast from
her the Christian SalilMth. Ah, believe
me, today, the holy Sabbath is to this
nation what the dykes nre to far off
Holland, keeping back the floods of sin
and ruin. God preserve our bulwark

treatises from his pen on science that

He addressed his sermon specially to
the promoters of the League of the Sa

more tihan fo;ty inlnutes. The Inten

is Christian education. Here he cited
some Interesting figures. In nil the
