CHICAUO, Dec. 20. In this sermon
the story of the magi's quest receive a
new setting and the lesson of Chris
tian hope and encouragement If drawn
from their experience. The text la
Matthew U, 1. "Behold, there came
wise men from the east!"
When, In BUtf A. D., St Augustine
was sent to convert the British isles to
Christianity, I'opo Gregory cotuniutuled
bis missionary as far ns possible to
hartuoniae the Christ lun ordinancea
with the benthnu fensta. The result la
that many of the customs associated
with Christmas iiave their origin not
in the birth of ChrUl, but la heathen
festivities. It ts my purpose today to
tell the sinniV Christian story, aa found
in the Bible, j'livl to apply eome of Ita
beneficent ttnolii:iji to the practicall
ties of cverjni.iy ..:.
The account of Christ's birth la not
only simply told, but very briefly told.
Pome of us are apt to think too briefly.
We would like to have known all the
details of that wondroua event which
hi desthied to transform the world. VP
deplore the loss of auy fact relating to
onr Lord. But the historians would
not have ns concern ouravivea with the
accessortea of the picture, but with that
glorious life and death in which our
eternal destiny Is bound np. They'
briefly itat tbe main facts and proceed
to tbe narrative ao momentous to the
A few years ago a southern corre
spondent hurried to tbe telegraph office
and aeat this message to the editor of a
great New York dally: "Fearful rail

The New York editor telegraphed back,
Tend me 000 wards all I want" The
correspondent tele-erapbe again, "Can
not be told In leas than 10." Tbe edi
tor tersely replied: "Story of the crea-'
tion of the world toM In 900 words.
Try It." But K she story of the crea
tle as. told tn (100 wards, the story
the nativity ts even more simply and
briefly told. The account of Jena
Nrth Is about aa altoply told aa the rec
ord of her fcatry adeemt which 'a fond

we have seen Lis star in the east and
are come to worship him." Tbe magi '
have been the theme for many an wrt-1
ist's brush, poet's song, aa well as min- ,
ister's sermon. If in the abort account
of the nativity It was important eooagb
to note the visit of these wise men. '
an rely it will not be wasted time for
us In a ChriKtmaa discourse to consid
er who were the wise men, from
whence they came, what they did when
they knelt and worshiped at the man-,
fer, where they went after they ad
seen the newborn Cbriat.
Who were the magi? They were the 1
wise men. They were not fools, not ,
ignoramuaea. not silly star gaaera.
They were not tramps going from '
place to place because they were too
laxy te work. They were the intellec
tual giants of the eaat They were
uch intellectual gianta that when they
appeared in Jerusalem they startled all
the sagas of the Herodian era with
tbeir grasp of affairs and mental pow
er. They belonged to a claas that waa
the repository of all the acientific
knowledge of the time. They were the
observers of natural phenomena, the
philoewphera of their day, the leaders
la the world of in hid. When Matthew
described them as "wiae men" he knew
that the deeeription would be clearly
understood aa applying to men whooe
erudition ' and mental ability placed
them among the ariatocracy of kuowl
dfe. Aa with Uomer er Socrates, the per
sonal lives of these men are all wrap
ped up in mystery. Their uamea, their
poaitiuua, their influence over their
countrymen, are all matters of conjec
ture. Profweeor bandy in bis "Christ
maatide" gives strange legend. lie
writes that tbe number of these wlae
ben who came from the east was
three. Me writes that the first of these
magi waa a very old man, with a long,
white beard. Iiia face was wrinkled
with thought and his limbs were tot
taring. His itaiue was Melchior. The
aecoud was a very young man. Ills
cheek was smooth and ruddy, his step
firm and athletic, his arm strong and
powerful. Yet his mind was clear as
hie aearchlng eye. His name waa Cas
par. Truly he was a prince among
men! The tli!-1 aage was a middle
aged Moor 4-alW "..lltbasar. In his 1
hair and beard was tle UladuieaS' of 1

men from the east to Jerustilrni, say- j tl:ey bad scon the Infant Christ anil
ins. "Whore is he that la born King rendered tholr liotungo at the innntjvr?
of the Jews!"
We have seen hundreds of pictures
descriptive of tbe wise men coming to
the manger. In every one of which the
artist has tried to put the highest In
telligence Into the face of the men
who were riding upon rnniel back or
trudging afoot over the desert's snnds;
but though it la algnlflvant that the
Drat seekers after Christ were the wis
est men of their time, the fact need
not aatonlsh ns. In every age since
that epoch the mightiest Intellects of
the world have been found among the
follower of Christ the wisest of men
have entered that Bethlehem caravan
sary to learn of hlin.
Where did (be wise men come from!
The far east? The word "east" Is very
Indefinite. It might mean eastern Asia
or China. It might and probably does
mean rersla or India. At all events,
the eaat was far off. It was so far off
that these strange travelers must have
startled the Inhabitant of the west
ern capital with their peculiar garb
and their foreign accent It waa ao
far off that In aU probability the wise
men would have been nnabl to find
the Jerusalem capital had they not
been led by that wonderful atar, the
star of the east Ah, yea, the magi. In
order to And the manger, had many a
weary day's march. Traveling In their
time had to be don on foot or on bora
or camel back. Tbey had to tramp
through the parched deserts. They
had to ctluib the loftiest of mountains
and fathom many a deep valley. Bow
tired they mast hav become! If Mel
chior was old In all probability he
would never bar reached the manger
but for the strong arms of bis two
friend. Bui wherever the three wis
man balled from, that gloaming atar
would beckon thesa on and on and on.
And yet, say friends, though the wlae
men bad to travel a long distance, they
did not hav to go any farther than
some sinners will hav to travel to find
Christ My, my, my, how long a dts

Oh, that today we might see a great
emigration foam tbe faroff land of aln
toward the manger. Oh, that today
the prodigals in the far country might
seek tbe old homestead of mercy, even
as the Bethlehem caravansary ws
sought of old. . In Imagination we can
picture bow tbe wlae men started. Per
haps weeks, perhaps months before
that first of all Chrietmaees these ori
ental aagea were working diligently at
their allotted tasks. One la studying
In one part of tbe house, another In an
other and the third in still another.
Perhaps Melchior, the aged astrologer,
with an astronomical glass is silently
and earnestly studying the beavena.
Patiently the aged scientist Is watching
and waiting for the stars to change
their relative positions. Suddenly a
tremor of excitement shakes his frame
Silently, swiftly, awfully, divinely,

light it does not look ao much like a

mond glittering upon the finger of God.
beckoning, always beckoning. In great
excitement tbe old man ataggers to bis
feet and caija his two comrades. Cas
par, the smooth faced sage, rushes
qulckly into tbe room because be Is
younger than tbe awartby middle aged
Moor. At first tbe three aay nothing.
Tbey at too absorbed to apeak. Then
Balthaaar opens a musty parchment
written hundreds of years before, and
begins to read from tbe Hebrew prophet
Micafa: "But thou Bethlehem Ephratab,
though thou be little among the thou
sand of Judab, yet out of thee shall be
com forth unto m that la to be ruler
m Israel, wboa going forth hav been
from of old, trom overlasting." "Yes,"
answered the old man Melchior, "that
remind me of another passage from
the Hebrew prophet Isaiah: 'Unto us a
child is bora, unto us a son la given,
and tbe government a hall be upon bis
abouidw, and hla nam shall be called
Wonderful, Counselor, the Mighty God,
tb EvarlaaUng Father, the Prince of
Peace.'" "Yea," may buve answered
tb poetic young aage, Caspar, "that
reminds me of what the Hebrew psalm
ist wrote, Thou are my son; lo, I come;
In the volume It is written of me.'"
"Come, oomrades!" they shout to each
Other. "Come, the star is beckoning
us. Come! Cqpie!" And they leave
their instruments and their manu
scripts and aet out on their journey.
Would that before the duwn of next
Christmas many exiles from Christ
might start aud take this journey with
the wise men! Would that all who are
lost In the mountains of sin mlht leave
behind their dead selves and seek the
nanger, which Is afar ot la the ' "1
ot purity and 'y'.
What did the tvlao jn-1 .-o tvi -n

Why, the Bible tells us explicitly they
went back home. God spoke to them,
as he has spoken to the hearts of many
who have bowed at the manger, and
they went back to their own country.
History Is silent about their later Uvea,
but we cannot think that tbey would
ever forget that strange experience.
No man come In contact with Christ
without results. Tbey probably thought
of lilm aa a world contpjeror and bade
their disciples expert to hear of bis
victories. Little could they hav Im
agined the extent of hla empire or un
derstand how, through the croaa, he
would attain his crown.
What ts tbe simple deduction of this
thought and lessonT Is It not this:
After you aud I have worshiped at tb
manger, In the fuller light of our later
day, then we should everywhere, but
first among our own people, tell the
newa, the glorious new, that Jesus,
the Son of God, has been born. We
must toll It to our children. We must
tell It to our brothers and sisters. We
must tall It to our parents and to all ur
friends and neighbors. "Behold, Jesus
has been born! Jeaua, our Saviour haa
been born! He lives! He Uvea! Jesus,
the 8ou of Mary, Uveal Jeaua, the Bon
of God, Uvea!"
Thus our mission on thla Christmas
day ia to seek the manger and while w
study Ita lessons and meditate on Its
humiliation to practice the aweet teach
ings of Jsn Christ, which cannot bet
ter be summed up than by briefly re
peating on of tb most beautiful of all
Christmas sterle. It Is that written
by Henry Tan Dyke. It la appropriate
ly called "The Other Wlae Man." Dr.
Van Dyke wrote the story lb groat
It waa the year hla father died and a
year of much physical suffering. On
night while lying awake, unani to
sleep and tees tog upon hla bod, he be
gan to think of the legends clustering
about tb "three wise man." Then
thee casa to aha a vision f a "fourth
wis man," who had tb gentle nam
of Artaban, Tb abbreviation of tb
whole stary Is this: When tn stsr ap
peared tn tb oast for magi fait that
they nut pot their household goods la
order before they took, then Journey.
Tbey deeidad to meet at a ertaln place
at a eartaln Oote poa tb tg of tb
groat desert Artaban mad geady for
bis Journey by selling his bouse and
worldly goods and buying three bean
Mfttl gems wnieh he could carry name
ly, a aanphrr, a ruby, and a pearl. ' On
his way, to meet his appolntmeht Arta
ban came across a poor beggar who
waa dying, a beggar who had no
frienda, a beggar who waa dying alone.
After nursing the poor beggar until be
died Artaban hurried on to meet his
appointment, but the three magi had
already gon. The other wise man bad
to retrace his steps, sell one of hla
gema, bis sapphire, and buy a train of
camels to make tb journey alone.
Tbe next, scene In tb story of "Tbe
Other Wise Man" la found In the vil
lage ot . Bethlehem. Jeaua had been
born, and the three magi bad disap
peared. ' A Artaban entered the vil
lage he heard the tramp of bloody
Herod's troops, who bad com to mas
sacre all tbe male children In Judasa,
with the hope of slaying tb infant
Christ A poor woman rushes out
pleading for the rescue of her child.
Tbe young mother'! fade grew white
with tenor at the cry: "Tbe soldiers!
The soldiers of Herod! Tbey are klll-
ing our children!" When a captain of
Herod's troops wanted to outer this
woman's house to slay her child Arta
ban stood In the doorway and offered
to the murderous soldier his second
gem, tbe beautiful ruby, If be would
save the child. Now two-thirds of Ar
. taban'a fortune waa gone, and still b
kad not found Christ
Then Artaban started on a journey
I to Egypt to And Jeeus. H bunted for
i him everywhere until he was a vary
old man. One day, In hla wanderings
to flof tbe Saviour, he beadsd back to
tbe dty of Jerusalem. Tb capital of
David was In groat excitement. There
was to be a pubUc crtirlflxioa of three
criminals two thieves and on a po
litical prisoner, Jeans by nam. As
Artaban catered tb dty be saw
young girl In great distress. She wai
to be sold as a slave for debt She
broke loose from her captors and flung
herself at bis feet, Dogging for deHv
era nee. Artaban gave his last gem, tb
beautiful pearl, for her iwsca. And
now alt hla money was gone. He was
now aa old man, and still he bad not
Just then the darkness of orudfliloa
began to gather around tb areas and
to settle over the tempi. Whan tb
awful earthquake cam, a heavy til
lipped from one of tb house roofs
and fell upon the old man' head. Bat
as b was dying a Strang spirit ap
peared before Artaban and practically
aald: "Thou, 0 noble man, thou bast
seen me aU these years. Vsrlly I say
unto thee, Inasmuch as abssj bait dea
It unto one of the least of abas my
brethren thou hast don it unto a."
If the Christian living today cannot
belong to the first group that started
for the manger, If be cannot be Mel
chlor, Caapar or Balthaaar, perhaps h
may belong to the second caravan. H
may be Artaban. Ua may be tb "oth-
