International Bible Lesson for Deo.
18, '10 (Matt. 28:1-20).
Tho darkest day this world over
saw wnB that Friday, when tho sun
In heaven refused to look upon tho
crucifixion of Josus of Kaznroth, and
a horror of supernatural gloom over
spread tho earth. Hut the brightest
day that ever dawned upon this
planot begun the following Sunday
morning, when tho Mighty Victor
arose in triumph from tho broken
tomb in the Garden,
Do not waste valuable timo at
tempting to prove tho resurrection.
You might ns well occupy your in
genuity in proving that tho sun
shines, that water flow.s, that birds
sing, that the seasons coma and go.
It would be possible perhaps to find
skeptics who doubt tliat tho Pilgrim
Fathors landed on Plymouth Bock,
but it is easy to see that such unbe
lievers must explain how tho ninety
millions of people of this country
were deluded Into the belief that they
did land, and how it happens that
traces of such an origin are found in
our Constitution. In our religious
and educational institutions, and in
our annual festival Thanksgiving.
So ho who doubts tho resurrection of
Jesus Christ must explain how mil
lions of the noblest, most intelligent
people have been made to bellevo
that He rose, and account for tho
origin of tho strongest, purest and
best civilization on the faco of tho
earth. That will give scepticism a
cud to chew on for quite an extend
ed period.
Let us all avoid tho error of tho
weeping women on the morning of
resurrection day of seeking the liv
ing among tho dead. We spend too
much of our time going backward
when wo should he going forward,
standing at the stern of the boat,
watching our luminous track, in
stead of In tho pilot house steering
our craft into unknown seas. Thero
are thousands of preachers who are
fixing the eyes of their flocks upon
tho historic Christ, instead of inspir
ing them with the desiro to go out
and find Him in the person of His
disciples, who need a eup of cold wa
ter. The Tomb Empty.
That church which hugs to her
heart a Holy Sepulchre, which per
sists In obsolete ceremonies and ef
fete customs, and dead usages will
have little influence upon the world
of to-day. If Christ 1b anything at
all Ho is a leader into the bound
less futuro, not the custodian of an
cient relics. Tho most abundant and
glorious heritage of the church is in
the present and the future, all new
and good Ideas, all novel but sacred
Impulses, all healthy civilizations
nro hers, a part of her unsearchable
riches. The tomb Is empty, never
to be occupied again. Let it go. It
needs no adornment of flowers, no
decorations, no repairs, no lavish
expenditure of affection. Christ, onco
out of it never went back to shed sen
timental tears over the place where
He rested for three days.
Where Christ Is Found.
If you want to And Christ these
days, look for Him in orphan asy
lums, and homes for the unforunato;
see him accompanying the Red Cross
nurses across bloody battlefields and
binding up tho wounds of friend and
foo alike; find him In halls of legis
lation, inspiring enactments in be
half of tho laborers and all who are
oppressed; behold Him knocking off
the shackles of superstition from tho
nations who for ages have sat In tho
valley of the shadow of death. Christ
1b not in the cradle, neither is He
on tho cross, nor in the grave. Thero
Is no mnn living on this planet to
day, in any country under tho
sun, who is so much alive, who
bo persistently thrusts himself into
society, law, politics, education, rell
ligion as He does. There are a
multitude- of things that could have
been done once, tliat cannot be done
now simply because Christ is alive.
He has to be reckoned with. Men
can sneer or snarl, blubber or blas
pheme, vote or not vote, tho thing
fails, simply because Christ is alive.
They tried to stop Him by killing
Him. Then they tried to stop Him
by killing his disciples. But they
failed both times.
"Thou fool," he said, "that which
thou Bowest is not quickened, except
It die." No seed ever went into tho
earth saying, "Let me die, and bo
forgotten." The seed says, "Put me
whero you will, only connect mo
with tho ministry of nature, and I
will come back to you, and will do
It a thousand fold. Bury mo that I
may llvo." So when Christ broko
out of that rock-hewn sepulchre in
tho garden, ho filled tho whole earth
with His presence. He was gono
from tho tomb, but not destroyed.
Into each century Ho comes. At
tho very moment that Mnry waa
complaining that they had takon
away her Lord the Lord Himsolf was
looking at her. Oh, dry up your
tears, ye mourners, look for Christ
In tho church, in tho school, in tho
library, In tho law-courts, In tho
ruler's palace, in the poor man'a
house, on 'Change, in halls of legis
lation. You may not know Him at
first, any more than weeping Mary
did, but If you watch carefully you
will, sooner or later, discover that
the resurrection Is an accomplished

Now York, Dec. l.'f.-The Tammany
organization Is considering plans to
move Its headquarters uptown. A
meeting to decide the question Inn

ninny hall, in Fourteenth street, near
Third avenue. The Olympic theater,

historic old hall, but that the Acade

By exerting almost superhuman ef
forts the firemen managed to keep the

of them were damaged by water. Tho
total damage resulting from the Urn
