Located on the Midwav, adjacent lo
the Amherst gate, visitors to the Pan
American Exposition w ill find an im
mense circular building: This is the
home of the ureal war cyeloraiua; the
now famous "Battle of Mission Ridge."
The great battle painting is sixty feet
high, and three hundred and eight feel
in circumference. It is more than the
ordinary canvass wall which consti
tutes the majority of panoramas, for it
embodies not only a vast painted sur
face, hut a plastic foreground of marvel
ous deception, over which i spread or
strewn in chaotic disordor, the impedi
menta of great warring hosts.
( hu e upon its lecture platform, il i
hurd to conceive that you have just left
the busy Midway, with its bustling
noisy mass of many nations, and now
on the top of Tennessee's gieal mount
aiu range. The horizon all around
rises ami falls like the waves ol the tur
bulent sen, with Its greal billows of
grandly beautiful scenery go where
you will within all 1 1 1 i . horizon, yet
turning everywhere, ever frown the
mountains. They rise like the blue
black clouds of an everlasting thunder
storm that w ill never pass over.
Overall this dignity of Cod's work,
War has -craw led its horrid autograph.
The print of War's bloody linger i- lie
fori' you, Gaunt and ghastly ! Terrible!
From the summits of these lofty
mountains, Satan might have ollercd
the kingdoms of the world.
The scene beforo you represent- the
last of those three memorable days in
November, IH03, which commenced
with the smiting of the Confederate's
creseenl lit f battle on Mondav. Nov
ember 2!lrd; the capture from I he rebel
forces of Lookout Mountain, Tuesday,
November 24th, and the storming of
"Mission Ridge" by the Union Army,
under the invincible leader-hip of the
liidnmitalbo Grant, on Wednesday,
November 25tb, 1803.
Vou are standing again on Orchard

and Southward beyond Lookout
Mountain, and this grand corydon,
oommandedby Generals Grant,
Thomas, Sheridan, Granger, Meigs,
Hunter and Reynolds, with the tips of
its wings led by Sherman and Hooker

by batteries and manned by the Confe

officered by Generals llmgg, Brecken

Blows are raining about the ridge,
from base to crest. Mission Ridge is
volcanic; literally aflame with Are, the
sullen clouds only part to pour forth a
torrent of red. Echos, that never waked
before, roar from height to height,
swelling the grand diapason of War's
exultant cry. The thunder of guns is
terrible; it grows sublime; it Is like the
foot bull of God, on the ledges of cloud.
The feverish heat of buttle beats all
around you; fifty-eight guns a minute
is the rate of this terrible throbbing. 1 1

The work of the Sunday School is
grand iu its aim, lofty in its purpose,
and glorias in its garnered fruitage.
Value is stamped upon the brow of
each opportunity, while interest intense
tills the busy moments. In ti,is re
cruiting station of th,. Lord's mighty
army there are officers whom oppor
tunities for good are golden. Thoughts
deep and potolll crowd upon Ihein.
Rut stretching themselves up t,, uu.
full real i.al ion of their rcs sible work
with a spirit akin to the -w. ct singer
of Israel, lhc cry out: "Why ail IhoU
cast down, O my soul.' and whj art
thou disquieted iii inc.' hope limit in
lod; for I shall yet praise him fin the
help of ids countenance."
The government has two ways of
saving life on the restless ocean, It
station- men iu certain ressiusible
place-, ami says: "You are to conduct
this life-saving station." They have a
hill line of necessary equipment for
ihe heroic work, hut nuisl gracefully
and patii lit 1 wait until the ships arc
on ihe treacherous rocks, ami the un
fortunate passengers ate struggling for
their lives upon tl,,. pnii,--, l( ;, j,,,.
Isisoni of (lie angry sea. before tie- life
saving crew i- sent to them. I'lie oth
er way i- the light-house, it plants
this noble sentinel upon tin shore and
-ays: -"You please live in lb - house
and Is tore t lie ship- get onto the hid
den rocks you warn Iheni oil', and
show t In in from the place of grim dan
gcr into the harbor of glad safety "
Tho Sunday School is endeavoring to
save life by the light-house rather than
Ihe life-boat plan. We arc trying to
keep the innocent boy- and girls off
the rugged cliflk, A large number of
coiis.'criiled men suvghim; their lives
as a living Sacrifice In the rescue-missions,
Grand opportunities of saving the
young from heart-aches, remorse, and
blasted hopes are constantly presented
to the alert, sympathetic, and Spirit
tilled S. S. worker. I believe it was
Mr. Wttiinmuker who said: "We
have the be-! cud of il. hen you
save a man or woman, you save a unit;
but w hen you save a boy or a girl you
-avc a whole multiplication table."
It is a great thing to save a soul :it any
age, but 1 asure you it is the greater
thing to save a soul pin- a life, the
child is the center of interest. Ihe
little child that Jesus put in the midst
hushcen in the midst ever since, and
tho "home-world" revolves nrouuil it.
The little child i- king or qi in
every home that it enter-. Do not loose,
then, the opportunity of saving all the
children possible that step within the
sacred threshold of your responsibility.
No doubt, many a thoughtless S, S.
worker has filled his cup with bitter
ness and his bow I w ith sorrow by neg
lecting the proper training nfthej oting
OpHrt unities arc not like the hawks
that circle round and round in tie blue
sky directly above you, but rather like
an arrow swift and fresh from I he quiv
er "NOW," I o not mistake n humble
bee for an opportunity. Opportunity
is like a -t i in of stepping-stones ticrofcs
a fortl. The weary traveller coining up
in iln in, muj find the river swollen
witli the nocturnal rains thai th"stoiies
are all bill covered. If he delll, . though
hi- palatial liomc be mi the opposite
bank ami full iu -ight, il may Is loo
late to rio, ami he may have a jour
ney of several miles to his home. The
Spanish say: "God keep you from "it
i- too laic." When the fool has made
up hi- mind, the market ha- gone by.
The Dutch -ay : "Kill Wenig Ym Spal,
Viel 54u Spat." I he Italian: Some re
fuse roust meat, and afterwards long
for the smoke of it."
Wilfully to let opportUllitii for good
goby is w ickedness mid an inexcusable
folly : whence the still more fooli re
grets which tear the hear! for felly is
only another name for thorns and
prickle seed; but a greater folly, is to
-land wailing, wishing, and longing
for opportunities when in fact they lie
about y ou like upturned autumn leave-.
Do your duty up to the brim and have
ihe results with God- Practice the
little duties of common life.
Opportunities of doing good work iu
the Sunday School arc lost when in
the llrst place, llii! teacher fails to
recognize his ofllce as divine. Jesus
chose to be a teacher because he
thought it the most important work iu
the world. Head his last command,
iu Mark 16:16, I know of no place on
this footstool SO fraught with oppor
tunity and responsibility as to stand

children those neatly closed caskets
