TEXT: "A man that bath frietds must
6how.himself friendly."—Proverbs xvill., 24.
Aboilt the snored and divine art of making
and keeping friends X speak—a subject on
which I never heard of anyone preaching—
and yet God thought it of enough impor
tance to put it in the middle of the Bible,
these writings of Solomon, bounded on one
side by the popular Psalms of David, and
on the other by the writings of Isaiah, the
greatest of the prophets. It seems all a
matter of haphazard hew many friends
we have, or whether we have any friends
at all, but there is nothing accidental about
it. There is a law which covers the accre
tion and dispersion of friendships. They
did not "just happen so" any more than
the tides just happen to rise or fall, or the
snn just happens to rise or set. It is a
science, an art, a God-given regulation.
Tell me how friendly you are to others,
and I will tell you how friendly others are
to you. I do not say you will not have
enemies; indeed, the best way to get ardent
friends is to have ardent enemies, if you
get their enmity in doing the right thing.
Good men and women will always have
enemies, because their goodness Is a per
petual rebuke to evil; but this antagonism
of foes will make more intense the love of
your adherents. Your friends will gather
closer around ycu because of the attacks of
your assailants. The more your enemies
abuse you the better your coadjutors will
think of you.
The best friends we havo ever had ap
peared at some juncture when we were
especially bombarded. There have been
times In my life when unjust assault multi
plied my friends as near as I could calcu
late, about fifty a minute. You are bound
to some people by many cords that neither
time nor eternity can break, and I will war
rant that many of those cords were twisted
by hands malevolent. Human nature was
shipwrecked about llfty-nine centuries ago.
the captain of that craft, one Adam, and
his first mate running the famous cargo
around on a snag in the river Hiddekel;
but there was al least one good trait of
human nature that waded safely ashore
from that shipwreck, and that is the dispo
sition to take the part of those unfairly
dealt with. When It Is thoroughly demon
strated that some one is being ; persecuted,
although at the start slanderous tongues
were busy enough, defenders finally gather
around as thick as honey bees on a trellis
of bruised honevsuckle.
If, when set upon by the furies, you can
havo grace enough to keep your mouth
shut, and preserve your equipoise, and let
others fight your battles, you will find
yourself after awhile with a whole cordon
of allies. Hud not the world given to
Christ upon His arrival at Palestine a very
cold shoulder, there would not have been
one-half as many angels chanting glory out
of the hymn books of the sky, bound In
black lids of midnight. Had it not been
for the heavy and jagged and tortuous
Cross, Christ would not have been the ad
mired and loved of more people than any
being who ever touched foot on either the
Eastern or Western Hemisphere. Instead,
therefore, of giving up in despair because
you havo enemies, rejoice in the fact that
they rally for you the most helpful and en
thusiastic admirer;. In other words, there
is no virulence that can hinder my text
from coming true: "A man that hath
friends must show himself friendly."
It Is my ambition to project especially
upon the young a thought whloh may be
nignly shape their destiny for the here and
the hereafter. Before you show yourself
friendly you must bo friendly. Ido not
recommend a dramatized geniality. There
is such a thing as pretending to be en rap
port with others, when we are their dire
destruotants, nnd talk against them and
wish them calamity. Judas covered up
his treachery by a resounding kiss, and
caresses may be demonical. Better the
mythological Cerberus, the three-headed
dog of hell, barking at us, than the wolf in
sheep's clothing, its brindled bide covered
up by deceptive wool, and its deathful
howl cadonced into an innocent bleating.
Disraeli writes of Lord Manfred,who, after
committing many outrages upon the peo
ple, seemed suddenly to become friendly
and invited them to a banquet. After
most of the courses had been served he
blew a horn, which was in those times a
signal for the servants to bring on the de
sert, but in this case it was the signal for
assassins to enter and slay the guests. His
pretended friendliness was a cruel fraud;
nnd there are now people whose smile is a
Before you begin to show yourself
friendly you must be friendly. Get your
heart right with God and man, and this
grace will become easy. You may by your
own resolution get your nature Into a
semblance of this virtue, but the grace of
Ged can sublimely lift you Into it. Sailing
on the River Thames two vessels ran
aground. The owners of one got one hun
dred horses, and pulled on the grounded
ship, and pulied it to pieces. The owners
of the other grounded vessel waited
till the tides came in, and easily floated
the ship out of all trouble. So we may
pull and haul at our grounded human na
ture, and try to get it into better condi
tion; but there is nothing like the oceanic
tides of God's uplifting grace. If, when
under tho flash of the Holy Ghost, we see
our own foibles and defects and depravi
ties, we will be very lenient, and very
easy with others. We will look into their
sharacters for things commendatory, and
not damnatory. If you would rub vour
own eye a little more vigorously you would
find a mote in it, the extraction of which
would keep you so busy you would not
have much time to shoulder your broad
axe and go forth to split up the beam In
your neighbor's eye. In a Christian spirit
keep on exploring the characters of those
you meet, and I am sure you will flnd
something in them lit for a foundation oi
You Invite me to como to your country
;eat and spend a few days. Thank you! 1
nrrive about noon of a beautiful summer
day. What do you? As soon as I arrive
you take me out under the shadow of the
great olms. You take me down to the
artificial luke, the spotted trout floating
in and out among the white pillars of the
pond lilies. You take me to the stalls and
kennelj where you keep your fine stock,
and here are the Durham cattle ana the
Gordon setters; and the high-stepping
?teed», by pawing and neighing, the only
language they can spjak, asking for har
ness or saddle, and a short turn down the
road. Then we go back to the house, and
you get me In the right light and show me
the Kensetts and the Bierstadts on the
wall, and take me into the music room and
jliow me the bird-eag?s, the canaries in
the bay window answering the robins in
the tree-tops. Thank you! I never en
joyed myself more in the same length of
time. Now, why do we not do so with the
characters of others, and show the bloom
ind the music and the bright fountains?
No. We say, "Come along, and let me
•how you that man's character. Here is a
*reen-scummed frog-pond, and there's a
filthy cellar, and I guess under that hedge
:here mu9t be a black snake. Come, and
let us for an hour or two regale ourselves
with the nuisances."
Oh, my friends, better aover up the
faults and extol the virtues; and this habit
once established of universal friendliness
will become as ea»y as It is for a syringa
:o flood tho air with sweetness, n9 easy as
:t will be further on in the season for a
quail to whistle up from the grass. When
rre hear something bad about somebody
vhom we always supposed to be good, take
>ut your lead pencil, and say; "Let me
tee! Before I accept that baleful »tory
that man's character, I will take
}JI from It twenty-flve per cent, for the
habit of exaggeration whloh belongs to th<
man who flrst told the story; then I will
take off twenty-flve per cent, for the addl<
tlons which the spirit of gossip In ever)
community has put upon the original
story; then I will take off twenty-flve per
cent, from the fact that the man may hav«
been put into circumstances o( overpower,
ing temptation. So I have taken off sev
enty-five per cent. But I have not heard
his side of the story all, and for that rea<
son I take off the remaining twenty-flv<
per cent. Excuse me, sir, I don't believe a
word of it."
Do not prophesy misfortune. If you must
be a prophet at all, be an Ezeklel, and not
a Jeremiah. In ancient times prophets
who foretold evil were doing right, for they
were divinely directed; but the prophets oi
evil In our time are generally false proph
ets. Beal troubles have no heralds running
ahead of their sombre chariots, and no one
has any authority in our time to announce
their coming. Load yourself up with hope
ful words and deeds. The hymn once sung
in our churches Is unfit to be sung, for it
We should suspect some danger near.
Where we possess delight.
In other words, manage to keep miser
able all the time. The old song sung at the
pianos a quarter of a century ago was right:
"Kind words can never die." Such kind
words have their nests in kind hearts, and
when they are hatohed out and take wing,
they circle round in flights that never cease,
and sportsman's gun oannot shoot them,
and 9torms cannot ruftia their wings, and
when they cease flight in these lower skies
of earth, they sweep around amid the high
er altitudes of Heaven. At Baltimore 1
talked Into a phonograph. The cylinder
containing tho words was sent onto Wash
ington, and the next day that cylinder from
another instrument, when
turned, gavo back to me the very words I
had uttered the day before, and with the
same intonations. Scold Into a phono
graph, and it will scold back. Pour mild
words into a phonograph and it will return
the gentleness. Sooiety and the world and
the church are phonographs. Give them
acerbity and rough treatment, and acerbity
and tough treatment you will get back.
Give them practical friendliness, and they
will give back practical friendliness. A
father asked his little daughter: "Mary,
why is it that everybody loves you?" She
answered: "I don't know, unless it is be.
cause I love everybody." "A man that hath
friends must show himself friendly."
We want something like that spirit of
sacrifice for others which was soeninthe
English Channel, where in tho storm a boat
containing three men was upset, and all
three were in the water struggling for
their lives. A boat came to their relief, and
u rope was thrown to one of them, and he
refused to take it, saying: "First fling it
to Tom; he is just ready togo down. I can
last some timo longer." A man like that,
be ho sailor or landsman, be ho in upper
ranks of society or lower ranks, will al
ways have plenty of frlonds. What is true
manwurd is true Godward. We must be
tho friends of God if we want Him to be
our friend. We cannot treat Christ badly
all our lives and expect Him to treat us
loving!!". I was reading of a sea fight, lu
which Lord Nelson captured a French offi
cer, and when tho French officer offered
Lord Nelson his hand, Nelson replied,
"First give me your sword, and then give
me your hand." Surrender of our resis
tance to God must precede God's proffer of
pardon to us. Repentance before forgive
ness. You must give up your 1 rebellious
sword before you can got a grasp of the
Oh, what a glorious state of things to
have the friendship of God! Why, we could
afford to huve all the world against us and
all other worlds against us if we had God
for us. Ho could in a minute blot out this
universe, and in another minute make a
better universe. I have no idea that God
tried hard when He made all things. The
most brilliunt thing known to us is light,
and for the creation of that He only used
a word of command. As out of a flint a
frontiersman strikes a spark, so out of one
word God struck the noonday sun. For
the making of tho present universe I do
not read that God lifted ,so much as a lin
ger. The Bible frequently speaks of God's
hands and God's arm and God's shoulder
and God's foot; then suppose He should
put hand and arm and shoulder and foot to
utmost tension, what could He not make?
That God of such demonstrated and unde
monstrated strength, you may have foi
your present and everlasting friend, not a
stately and reticent friend, hard to get at,
but as approachable as a country mansion
on a summer day, when all thu doors and
windows are wide open. Christ said, "I
ntn the door." And He is a wide door, n
high door, a palace door, an always open
If God is your friend, you cannot go out
of the world too quickly or suddenly, so far
as your own happiness is concerned. There
were two Christians who entered Heaven;
the one was standing at a window in per
fect health, watching a shower, aud the
lightning Instantly slew him; but the
lightning did not flash down the sky as
swiftly as hts spirit flashed upward. The
Christian man who died on the same day
next door had been for a year or two fail
ing In health, and for the last three months
had suffered from a disea.se that made the
nights sleepless and the days an anguish.
Do you not really think that the case of
the one who went Instantly was more de
sirable than the one who entered the shin
ing gate through a long lane of insomnia
and congestion? In the one ease it was
like your standing wearily at a door,
knocking and waiting, and wondering if it
will ever open, and knocking and waiting
again, while In the other case it was a
swinging open of the door at the flrst
touch of your knuckle. Give your friend
ship to God, and have God's friendship for
you, and even the worst accident will be a
How refreshing is human friendship; and
true friends, what priceless treasures!
When sickness comes, and trouble comes,
and death comes, we send for our friends
flrst of ail, and their appearance in our
doorway in any crisis is reinforcement, and
when they have entered, we say: "Now, it
is all right!" Oh, what would we do with
out personal friends, business friends,
family friends? But we want something
mightier than human friendship in the
great exigencies. When Jonathan Ed
wards, in his final hour, had given the last
good-bye to all his earthly friends, he
turned on his pillow and closed his eyes,
confldently saying: "Now, where is Jesus
of Nazareth, my true and never-failing
Friend?" Yes, I admire human friendship
as seen in the case of David and Jonathan,
of Paul and Onesiphorus, of Herder and
Goethe, of Goldsmith and Reynolds, ol
Beaumont and Flotcher, of Cowley and
Harvey, of Erasmas and Thomas More, of
Lessing and Mendelssohn, of Lady
Churchill and Prince Anne, of Orestes and
Pylades, each requesting that himsell
take the point of the dagger, so
the other might be spared; of Epa
minondus and Pelopidas, who locked
their shields in battle, determined to die
together; but the grandest, the mightiest,
the tenderest friendship in all the universe
is the friendship between Jesus Christ and
a believing soul. Yet, after all I have
said, I feel I have only done what James
Marshall, the miner, did in 1813 in Cali
fornia, before its gold mines were known.
He reached in and put upon the table ol
his employer, Captain Sutter, a thimbleful
of gold dust. "Where did you get that?"
said his employer. The reply was:"l got
it this morning from a mill race from
which the water had been drawn off " But
fhat gold dust, which oould have been
takenup between theflnger andthethumb,
was the prophecy and specimen that re
vealed California's wealth to all nations.
And to-day I have' only put before you a
specimen of the value of divine friendship,
only a thimbleful of mines inexhaustible
and Infinite, though ail time and all
eternity goon with the exploration.

Device* of the Devil.
The devil is always abreast of the times
and adopts cunning devices to trap th«
unwary. In front of saloons in nearlj
svery city in the country during the wa";
he had this placard exposed: "War news
Yes, war news! The same returns thf
drunkard's wife has been receiving year
after year slnoo the husband enlisted in
the army of inebriutes. What are the re
turns? Neglect, abuse, distress, shame,
despair, physical decay and spiritua'
blight! Deserters from the ranks of man
hood and social purity And In the saloon
an abundance of war news in times o!
peace. The saloon itself is the devil's
arsenal. It is also the rendezvous where
he mobilizes his forces for the tlnal assault
upon society nnd the home.
War news In the saloon represents the
new recruits under King Alcohol. So lonq
as the saloon exists thero will bo plenty ol
What does the devil care about our en
tangleinents with foroign powers? He has
no interest in our present struggle tot
humanity's right beyond tho canvas walls
of the damnable canteen! From It he gets
his war new 9 from the front. Glorious
accounts of the surrender of manhood and
everything that makes life dear! Verily,
these authorized dopots of hellish supplies
are a disgrace and a crime against clvllizu
tion. Officers feast upon luxuries pur
chased with money received in exchange
for whisky and beer sold their uommands
while the dupes who spend their monej
for drinks must content themselves with
coarse rations provided by the com
missary! Here is a picture to hold up be
fore civilized critics. Our nation parading
before the world, arrayed in the para
phernalia of war, as the champion of
liberty and oppressed humanity, while
establishing and maintaining in our mili
tary centres a traffic that is welding the
chains of eternal bondage around the
hopes of the flower of our country's man
hood! Truly, tho devil has war news to
bulletin in the saloon.
But the mo9t appropriate bulletin of wai
news the saloonkeeper could expose would
be the picture of a drunkard's home. This
would represent the storming, the assaults,
the counter-charges, the all-day and all
night battles with hunger and disease,
forced marches to evade creditors, beg
ging, plehdlng for mercy and the final
surrender of hope and virtue to the over
whelming forces of despair aud demoraliza
tion. The drunkard's wife has no time 0/
peace in which to prepare for war. It is
for her one continued struggle against
poverty aud the demon sent against the
home day after day from the devil's head
quarters in the saloon.
An hour in the police court in a large
city will convince anyone that there is
"war news" inside the saloon, the echoes
of which resound through the dork
corridors of the prison and the grave,
and whose duplicate bulletins hang UDOD
the plctureless walls of the cheorless
quarters the saloonkeeper has robbed of
the name of home.—Zion's Outlook.
The Temperance Movement a Preventive
The temperance movement at the present
time is both reformatory and preventive
reformatory Inasmuch as it seeks to re
claim from the control of drunkennoss
those who have fallen Into that abhorrent
vice; and preventive in that it endeavor! l
to preserve as total abstainers those whe
have not, as yet. yielded to the seductions
Much attention was at one time given to
the reformatory pliuse of the question; but
Erevention being, according to the adage,
etter than cure, the work of temperance
organizations now seems to be mainly
directed towards enlisting in the cause
boys and girls a«d men and women who
have never tnsted liquor. This does not
imply, however, a lack or loss of Interest
in the work of inducing drunkards to give
up their evil habit, but it shows that th«
temperance workers have learned from ex
perience that the main hope of the move
ment is in the young, and in those who
have never forged even the first link of u
chain that binds so many.
It is the aim of the temperance movement
to draw within the sphere of its influence
all such abstainers, and to so instruct and
guide them that tbey will remain free from
the taint of the liquor habit through their
lives, being thereby examples of sobriety
and clean living to all. And while eagerly
weleoming into the various temperance
organizations those who desire to amend
their lives, as regards drinking to excess,
it is as a preventive that the temperance
movement will achieve its greatest success.
—Sacred Heart Review.
Heroen Who Don't Drink.
The reaent brilliant English victory in
the Soudan was won by a force composed
exclusively of total abstainers. For months
Sir Herbert Kitchener has denied all liquoi
to his troops, with the result that, In on«
of the deadliest of climates, no army has
ever had so little sickness, been in such
magnificent physical and moral training,
or won hard fought battles after forced
marches of such extraordinary charaoter.
No wonder that the total abstinence prin
cipal In warfare is being pondered bv mill
tary authorities throughout the world.
The War on Hum.
If a young man has the love of drink and
does not give It up, the chances are a
hundred to one against him. He will gc
on little bv little, and he will find at last h<
has got his master.
If we are to have a happy and prosper
ous commonwealth, we must keep the do
mestic life pure and strong. Drunkenness
is one of the greatest curses of the domes
tic life of the people.
Statistics show a very close connection
between poverty and saloons, A recent
number of an English publication assert*
that in the poorest district in London then
is one saloon to each 136 of population, 01
eighty salopm to 11,090 of population. _
• A New Torpedo Net.
As a protection against the action
~>t torpedoes onr warships were pro
vided with -wire-netting shields, or
crinolines, which can be expanded by
spars so as to form a wall around the
vessel's sides. Upon which some in
genious inventer gave the traveling
fish-shaped destroyer a catting im
plement at its head which could pene
trate the wire screen. A new form of
crinoline has now been introduced
which possesses a mesh of such con
struction that it cannot be pierced.
But the invention probably comes too
late; for if any lesson is to be learned
from recent events, it is that the tor
pedo in naval warfare is of suoh sec
ondary importance that it may be al
most neglected altogether. We have
(earned lately that fighting ships
armed with modern guns need not get
to close quarters to work terrible de
struction upon one another. A couple
of miles separating the attacking ves
sel aud that with which she is en
gaged is regarded as a near range;
and no torpedo is effective at a quar
ter of that distance. Quick-firing
guns and accurate marksmanship are
the far more important items to at
tend to, and American perfection in
both these respects has really de
termined the issue in the present war.
An Oak Tree 10.000 Years Old.
An extraordinary discovery, and
one which is just now exciting con
siderable interest in antiquarian
circles in Lancashire and Cheshire,
has been made at Stockport. During
the excavation of sewage works for
the town some workmen came across
what has since proved to be a massive
oak tree, with two immense branches.
Professor Boyd Daw-kins, the well
known antiquary, is of opinion that
the tree is one of the giants of pre
historic times, and he says that the
tree is certainly 10,000 years old. The
corporation of Stockport is at a loss
what to do with the gigantic fossil,
which is supposed to weigh about
