Certain Amount of Persecution and
Tribulation Arouses the Be*t That is
In a Man—Woman In a Crisis.
TEXT: "There was a sharp rock on the
one side, and a sharp rook on the other."
I Sam. xtv.. 4.
The cruel armv of the Philistines must
be taken and scattered. There is just one
man. aocompanled by his bodvguard. to
do that thing. Jonathan Is the hero of the
scene. I know that David cracked the
skull of the giant with a few pebbles well
slung, and that three hundred Gideonltes
Mattered ten thousand Amalokltes bv the
crash of broken orockery: hut here is a
more wonderful conflict. Yonder are the
Philistines on the rooks. Here Is Jonathan
with his bodyguard In the valley. On the
one side Is a rock called Bozez; on the other
side is a rock called Seneh. These two
were as famous in olden times as in modern
times nre Plymouth Hook and Gibraltar.
Thev w«re precipitous, unscalable and
sharp. Between these two rocks Jonathan
must make his ascent. The day comes for
the scaling of the height. Jonathan, on
his hands and feet, begins the nscent.
With strain and slip and bruise, T suppose,
but still on nnd up, first goes Jonathan,
nnd then goes his bodvgunrd. Bofcoz on
one side, Seneh on the other. After a sharp
tug. and push, and clinging, I see the head
of Jonathan above the hole in the moun
tain, and there is a challenge and a fight,
and a supernatural consternation. These
two men. Jonnthan and his bodvguard,
drive back and drive down the Philistines
over the rocks, and open a campaign which
demolishes the enemies of Israel. I sup
pose that the overhanging and overshad
owing rocks on either side did not balk or
dishearten Jonathan or his bodyguard, but
only roused and filled them with enthusi
asm as they went UP. "There was a sharp
rock on the one side, and a sharp rock on
the other side."
M.v friends vou have been, or nre now,
same of you. In tills crisis of the text. If a
man meets one trouble he can go through
with It. He gathers all his energies, con
centrates them on one point, and in the
strength of God, or by his own natural de
termination, gncs through it. But the man
who has trouble to the right of him, nnd
trouble to the left of him, is to be pitied.
Did either trouble come alone, lie might
endure it. but two troubles, two disasters,
two overshadowing misfortunes, are Bozez
nnd Seneh. God pity himl "There Is a
sharp rock on the one side, and a sharp
rock on the other side."
In this crisis of the text is that man
whose fortune nnd health fall him at
the same time. Nine-tenths of all our mer
chants capsize in business before they come
to forty-five years of age. There is some
collision In commercial circles, and they
stop payment. It seems ns if every man
must put his name on the back of a note
before ho learns what a fool a man Is who
risks all his own property on the prospect
that some man will tell the truth. It seems
as if a man must have a large amount of
unsalable goods on his own shelf before lie
learns how much easier it is to buy than to
sell. It seems as If every man must be com
pletely burned out before he learns the im
portance of always keeping fully Insured.
It seems as If every man must be wrecked
In financial tempest beroro he learns to
keep things snug In caso of a sudden euro
When the calamity does come, It Is
awful. The man goes homo in dospalr,
and he tolls his family, "We'll have togo
to the poor-house." He takes a dolorous
view of everything. It seems as If tie never
could rise. But a little time passes, and
lie says, "Why, I am not so badly off after
ail: I have my family loft."
Before the Lord turned Adam out of
Paradise, He gave him Eve, so that when
he lost Paradise he could staud It. Per
mit one who has never read but a few
novels In all his life, and who has not a
great deal of romance In his composition,
to say, that If, when a man's fortunes fall,
he has a good wife —a good Christian wife
—he ought not to bo despondent. "Oh,"
you say, "that only increases the embar
rassment, since you have her also to take
care of." You are an ingrate, for the
woman as often supports the man as the
man supports the woman. The man may
bring all the dollars, but the woman gen
erally brings the courage and tho faith in
Well, this man of whom I am speaking
looks around, nnd ho finds his family Is
left, and he rallies, and the light comes to
his eyes, and the smile to his fnce, and the
courage to his heart. In two years lie is
quite over It. He makes his financial
ealamlty the first chapter in a new era of
prosperity. He met that one trouble—con
quered it. Ho sat down for a little while
under the grim shadow of the rock Bozez;
yet he soon rose, and began, like
Jonathan, to climb. But how often
Is it that ptiysical ailment comes
with financial embarrassment! When
the fortune failed It broke the man's spirit.
His nervos were shattered. His brain was
Btunned. I can show you hundreds of men
In our cities whose fortune and health
failed at the same time. They came
prematuroly to the staff. Their hand
trembled with incipient paralysis. They
never saw a well day since the hour when
they called their creditors together for a
compromise. If such men are impatient,
and peculiar, and irritable, excuse them.
They had two troubles; either one of which
they could have met successfully. If, when
the health went, tho fortune had been re
tained, it would not have been so bad. Tho
man could have bought the very best
modical advice, and he could have had the
very best attendance, and long lines of
carriages would liavo stopped at the front
door to inquire as to his weltare. But
povorty on one side and sickness on the
other are Bozez and Seneh, and they inter
lock their shadows, and drop them upon
the poor man's way. God help him!
"There is n sharp rock on the one side,
nnd a sharp rock on the other side."
Now, what is such a man to do? In the
name of Almighty God, I will tell him what
to do. Do as Jonnthan did—climb; c!imt>
up into tho suulight of God's favor and
consolation. I can gothrough the churches,
nnd show you men who lost fortune and
health at the sams time, and yet who sing
nil day and dream of Heaven all night. If
you have any idea that sound digestion,
and steady nerves, nnd clear eyesight, and
good henring, and plenty of friends, are
necessary to make a man happy, you have
It is a difficult thing for a man to feel his
dependence upon God when lie has ten
thousand dollars in the bauk, and fifty
thousand dollars in Government securities,
and a block of stores and three ships.
'Well," the man says to himself, "It is silly
for ine to pray, 'Give me this day my daily
bread,' when my pantry is full, and the
canals from the West are crowded with
hreadstuits destined for my storehouses."
Oh, my friends, if tho combined misfor
tunes and disaster* of life have mado you
alimb up Into tho arms of a sympathetic
and compassionate God, through all eter
nity you will bless Him that In this world
"there was a sharp rock on the one side,
»nd a sharp rock on the other side."
Again, that man Is in the crisis of the text
(vlio has home troubles and outside perse
cution at the satno time. The world treats
A man well just as long as it pays to treat
him well. A.s long as It can manufacture
success out of his bone and brain and
muscle, It favors him. The world fattens
tho horse It wants to drive. But let a man
see it is his duty to cross the track of the
world, then every bush is full of horns and
tusks thrust at him. They will belittle him.
'They will caricature him. They will call
liis generosity self-aggrandizement and his
piety sanctimoniousness. The very worst
Jiersecutlon will sometimes come upon
ilm from those who profess to bo Chtls
John Milton—(treat and Rood John Mil.
ton—so far forgot himself as to pray. In so
many words, that his enemies might bo
eternally thrown down Into the darkest and
deepest gulf of Hell, and be the undermost
anil most dejeotod. and the lowest down
vassals of perdition! And Martin Luther
so far forgot himself as to say. In regard to
his theological opponents: "Put them In
whatever sauna you please, roasted, 01
fried, or baked, or stewed, or boiled, or
hashed, they are nothing but asses!" Ah,|
my friends, if John Milton or Martin Lnthei
could come down to such scurrility, what
may yon not expect from less elevated op
Now, a certain amount of persecution
rouses a man's defiance, stirs his blood for
magnificent battle, and makes htm fifty
times more a man than he would have been
without the persecution. So It was with
the great Reformer when he said, "I will
not be put down, I will bo heard." And so
It was with Millard, the preacher. In the
time of Louis XI. Wben Louis XI. sent
word to him that unless he stopped preach
ing In that style he would.throw him into
the river, he replied, "Tell the king that I
will reach Heaven sooner by water than he
will reaoh It by fast horses." A oertaln
amount of persecution Is a tonic and In
spiration. but too much of It, and too long
continued, becomes the rock Bozez throw
ing a dark shadow over a man's life. What
Is ho to do then? Go home, you say. Good
advice that. That is just the place for a
man togo when the world abuses him.
There are many homes in which there la
no sympathy, and no happiness, and no
good cheer. The clamor of ther battle
mav not have been heard ontside; but
God knows, notwithstanding all the
playing of the "Wedding Maroh,"
and alt the odor of the orange blossoms,
and the benediction of the officiating pas
tor, there has been no marriage. So
sometimes men hnve awakened to And on
one side of them the rock of persecution,
nnd on the other side of them the rock of
domestic Infelicity. What shall such a one
do? Do as Jonathan did—climb. Get up
the heights of God's consolation, from
which you mny look down in triumph upon
ontside persecution and home trouble.
While good and great John Wesley was be
ing silenced by the magistrates, and hav
ing his name written on the board
fences of London In doggerel at that
very time Ills wife was making him as mis
erable as she could—acting as though she
were possessed by the Devil, as I suppose
she was; never doing him a kindness until
the day she ran away, so that he wrote in
his diary these words: "I did not forsake
her; I have not dismissed her; I will not re
call her." Planting one foot upon outside
persecution, and the other foot on home
trouble, John Weslev climbed up into the
heights of Christian joy, and after preach
ing forty thousand sermons, and traveling
two hundred and seventy thousand miles,
reached the heights of Heaven, though in
this world he had It hard enough—"a sharp
rock on the one side, and a sharp root on
Again, that womnn stands in the crisis of
the text who has bereavement and a strug
gle for a livelihood at the same time. With
out mentioning names, I speak from obser
vation. Ah, it is a hard thing for a woman
to make an honest living, even when her
heart is not troubled, and she has a fair
cheek, and the magnetism of an exquisite
presence. But now the husband, or the
father, is dead. The expenses of the obse
quies have absorbed all that was left in the
savings bank; and, wan and wasted with
weeping and watching, she goes forth—a
grave, a hearse, a coffin behind her—to
contend for her existence and the existence
of her children. When I see such a battle
as that open, I shudder at the ghastliness
of the spectacle. Men sit with embroidered
slippers and write heartless essays about
women's wages; but that question is made
up of tears and blood, and there is more
blood than tears. Oh, give woman free ac
cess to all the realms where she can get a
livelihood, from the ielegrapli office to the
pulpit! Let men's wages be cut down be
fore hers are cut down. Men have iron in
their souls, and can stand it. Make the
way free to her of the broken heart. May
God put into my hand the cold, bitter cup
of privation, and give me nothing but a
wlndowless hut for shelter for many years,
rather than that after I am dead there
should go out from my home into the piti
less world a woman's arm to light the Get
tysburg, the Austerlitz, the Waterloo of life
for bread! And yet, how many women
there are seated between the rock of be
reavement on the one side and the rock of
destitution on tho other! Bozez and Seneh
interlocking their shadows and dropping
them upon their miserable way. "There Is
a sharp rock on the one side, and a sharp
rock on the other side."
What are such to do? Somehow, let
them climb up into the heights of the
glorious promise: "Leave tho fatherless
children, I will preserve them alive, and
let thy widows trust in Me." Or get up
into the heights of that other glorious
promise: "The Lord preserveth the
stranger, and relieveth the widow and the
fatherless." Oh, ye sewing women, on
starving wages! Oh, ye widows, turned
out from the once beautiful home! Oh,
female teachers, kept on niggardly stipendl
Oh, ye despairing women, seekiug in vain
for work, wanderiiig along the docks, and
thinking to throw yourselves into the river
last night! Oh, ye women of weak nerves,
and aching sides, and short breath, and
broken heart, you need something more
than human sympathy; you need the sym
pathy of God. Climb up into His arms.
Ho knows it all, and He loves you more
than father, or mother, or husband over
could or ever did; and, instead of sitting
down, wringing your hands in dospair, you
had better begin to climb. There are
heights of consolation for you, though now
"there is a sharp rock on the one side, and
a sharp rock 011 the other side."
Oh, then, accept the wholesale invitation
which I make this day to all tho people!
Come up from between your invalidism and
ilnancial embarrassments. Come up from
between your bereavements and your des
titution. Come up from between a wasted
life and an unlllumlned eternity. Like
Jonathan, climb up with nil your might,
instead of sitting down to wring your hand 9
in the shadow and in the darkness—"a
sharp rock on the one side, and a sharp
rock on the other side."

Responsibility—it's a stroug word. A

ntemperato friend, "Now, If I drink this
glass of wine and become a drunkard, will
you take the responsibility?"
The drunkard said, "Set down that
glass." It was set down, and the two
walked away. If every person would realize
that the word lu season would show the
responsibility of being "my brother's

sponsibility, the ruin of health, the broken

erty, the blighting of hopes, and the dam
nation of hell that waits on the trafflcing

would soon find many who are in the busi

Model Temperance Town.
The little village of Alfred, N. Y., lying
between the hills, at an altitudeof 180 D feet
above the level of the sea, Is proud of being
six miles from a drink Qf beer. This village
3f 700 or 800 inhabitants is strictly an
American town, not a family of foreign
birth living there. The valley in whioh the
town is built is one mile wide and two long,
surrounded on all sides by hills. As no
license for the sale of intoxicating liquors
has been granted for over fifty years, there
Is scarcely any drunkenness in the town,
and pauperism aud crime are almost un
heard of among the villagers. They sup
port a justice of the peace office and a
notary public, but so little litigution is
carried on that no lawyer has been able to
make a living there. —Now York Tribune.
What the Canteen Boei.
The strongest argument in favor of the
abolishment of the army canteen is a
drunken soldier. The liquor may not have
been secured at the canteen, but that does
not count. If the boys desire to preserve
the canteen let them keep sober.
Many fraternal organizations seem to
exist only for convivial purposes, and in
stead of helping those who join them to
live soberly and decently, they very often
nre the cause of maklug drunkards of men
who otherwise might leud sober lives.
