THE HOLIDAYS.

"Christmas comes but once a
year," is an acclamation often
heard at this season. Sometimes it
is used as palliation of questionable
moral conduct. The boozy fellow,
as well as the giddy girl, has fre frequently
quently frequently found consolation in the
saying. Yet they could as easily
make the same remark about any
other day of the year. We believe
in being glad, even frolicsome,
during the holidays, if such is un unaccompanied
accompanied unaccompanied by unchristian beha behavior.
vior. behavior. What is wrong from a
Christian standpoint is wrong on
any day. And, withal, if Christ Christmas
mas Christmas has any significance at all,
it is that of honor and devotion to
him whose anniversary we cele celebrate.
brate. celebrate. Of course it is a day of

charity for the shortcomings of our
fellows; but he who argues that it
is a time tor him to be charitable
toward his own sins defeats the
object of the glad day of days. Let
every one, consequently, act as
Cnristianly during Christmas, and
a little more so, as he would ordi ordinarily
narily ordinarily do.
We feel, however, not so much
in the mood of delivering a homily
on Christian morals now, as to wish
for every reader of the Star a
glad, joyous time during these holi holidays.
days. holidays. The past, notwithstanding
its trials tor many of us, has been
fuller of blessing than of sorrow.
And the best of all rights to be

happy exists in the fact that Christ
is ours. In this, the greatest of

gifts, we recognize Him who

taught us to leave off thought of

our own misfortunes and become
enveloped in that highest arid best

of all happiness, namely, doing for
others. Before we think of admin

istering to our own bodies, there therefore,
fore, therefore, let every Christian make n
gift to Him and His work. Let us
see His needs in the needs of the
poor and His joy in their joy.

A Merry
Christmas
and a Happy
New Year
TO ALL.

Joshua's Character.

Sermon by Rev. Russell H. Conwel! of Phlla-
delphis.
I have been asked by members
of the church who are studying the
book of Joshua, what keynote I
could give them to the book that
would make it of more interest to
them, and it seems to me that the
question they asked of me should
be asked by other students of the
IJible.
So I say to you readers of the
Bible, take for the keynote the
character of Joshua. Read it with
the chief purpose of finding out
what sort of a man Joshua was,
and then the book will have in intense
tense intense interest to you. You will
go back and read it over the sec second
ond second time with more fascination
than at first,, and the tenth time
you will read it with a greater in interest
terest interest than ever before.
It seems to be built around the
example of Joshua, and it seems to
present, in his life, lessons of mor morality,
ality, morality, lessons of earthly wisdom,
and lessons of religion that can be
Caught in no other way but by per personal
sonal personal example.
If you read this book aright, you
will find that one of the principal
characteristics of Joshua's charac character
ter character was this: that he had fixed
principles; that he was grounded
and settled on certain moral ideas,
on certain religious truths, and
that he never swerved from them
Oh, that is a noble character!
Now in the text we find this dec
laration of his, "As for me and my
house, we will serve the Lord."
lie said, "If you choose to go and
serve the gods of the Amorites;
if you choose to mingle with the
people who have already been con
demned by God for their sins if
' 3ou choose, you still have left that
right from Gd; ye can select evil,
ye can select good; but as for me
and my house, we will serve the
Lord."
No matter what temptations you
bring to Joshua, it does not make
any difference, or what ambitions
you might present to him, for he
might have had the throne. But
his character is fixed. "My heart
is fixed," .saith David. If he had
ibeen faithful to his profession, he
would have been as magnificent a
character as Joshua, but Joshua
lived up to the principles he pro professed.
fessed. professed. I look around this congregation
again, and I see men that have be begun
gun begun this Sabbath day in noble liv living
ing living and in consecration to God,
but I wonder where I will find
them on Monday at half-past
twelve, where on Wednesday, and
on Friday, and Saturday?. Will
they be the same tomorrow as to today?
day? today? A man cannot live so well
on Sunday but that he ought to
live equally well on Monday and
Wednesday.
Oh, where are the men who live
a Christian Sunday life every day
of the week? If you show me one
I will show you one of the sublim sublim-cst
cst sublim-cst heroes about which literature
ever uttered her encomiums. And
wife, if you have such a husband;
husband, if you have such a wife;
or friend, if you have such a friend,
hook them to you with bands of
steel, for you are blessed. Be sure
they are like Joshua, fixed, tin mov movable
able movable the years may come and go,
but no change there. Just as true
to the church today as when they
joined. Just as true to their prom promise
ise promise now as years ao; their word is
better than their bond, because
they feel more in honor bound to
keep the slightest promise than to

care for That 10 which ihey are al already
ready already irrevocably bound.
The true man is he who is more
careful to keep himself true to that
promise to which he could not be
legally held, than to those where
he must pay.
Study the life of Joshua, begin beginning
ning beginning with the first chapter of
Joshua, or better still, beginning
back a little further in Numbers,
and read of his allegiance to Moses,
and then take the book of Joshua

with that introduction.
Mankind is naturally seeking for
solidity. This world trembles and
revolves rapidly around the sun,
and that sun around another sun,
and we are looking tor the center,
the great solid center, where noth nothing
ing nothing moves. The central point
around which the universe revolves
is God, and God is the only per perfectly
fectly perfectly solid thing of which you can
read or think; and he only has a
solid character whose character is
founded on God.
Who was Joshua? Who was his
father? Why he was "Nun ." He
was the son of Nun. That is all
we know about him, and it is just
as well, probably, to know nothing
else. His father was not a noble
man, and it did not make any dif difference
ference difference who his mother was.
Aaron you know his ancestry;
Moses you know his ancestry
But who was Joshua? He was a
house servant. We read he was
"Moses minister." I don't think
he found any fault in waiting on
Moses in the humblest way. He
brought his food and washed the
dishes, and took care of the tent
and made up his bed.
Determined to be faithful in an
humble way to some one who is
doing more than you can do, is to
have the loveliest character this
side of a perfect Christianity. You
see a man or woman who can do a
work better than you can, and you
acknowledge it, and you set your yourself
self yourself to assist him of her in that
work. That was Joshua. That is
the finest thing in his history, that
he saw that Moses was called of
God to do a certain work, and he
felt that Moses was capable of

he humbled himself entirely, de devoted

until the angels buried Moses, he
was Moses' faithful servant every everywhere.
where. everywhere. When Moses died, and his grave
was covered with the leaves by the
angels of God, the people would
naturally say, "The only man who
is well acquainted with the coun counsels
sels counsels of Moses, who knows the in inside
side inside of his life, is Joshua. But he
is only a servant, he is not of aris aristocratic
tocratic aristocratic birth, he has. not the edu education
cation education which Moses had in all the
learning of the Egyptians. He
has only been a servant. Yet he
has been with Moses all this time.
He has been faithful to Moses. He
understands all of Moses' wishes
and ways."
Joshua himself felt that, and he
declined the appointment. He
acted as though he could not un undertake
dertake undertake such a great thing. But
they will be destroyed without him,
the promised land will not be taken,
Jerusalem will not be built, if he
does not go on; and yet he is so
modest, he feels he is so weak, and
puts it away from him. But the
people say to him, and God says it
three times, "Be of good courage,
do not hesitate, go on. Take this
place. Carry out Moses' plan. Do
what Moses would have done it he
had gone on into the promised
land."
And when he at last reluctantly

icccpteci the awiui cnarge of lead leading
ing leading them into the new Canaan, we
hnd this thing about Joshua, thai
nr had no plans of campaign for
himself.
Every church which comes to
great success gc;ts to that point
without a human hobby The min minister
ister minister must have no iron plan; he
must simply see what the Lord
commands to be done next, and all
the methods for intervening work
must be left to God. If a man
gets up a hard, iron-clad plan, and
then determines to bring his
church into that plan, he will
wreck the whole enterprise.
God does not often tell us how
to do a thing in advance. He
simply tells us to do it. He said

to Joshua, "Lead this people into
the promised land," and that is aU.
He said to him, "Be of good cour courage,
age, courage, and lead them in." He did
not say to him, "The river will di divide."
vide." divide." He did not say, "The walls
of Jericho w ll fall."
God said, "Travel this way," and
he went there. God said, "Go to
this city," and he went. God said,
"Go to this valley." And so, step
by step, without seeing more than
one step at a time, at last he stood
with Caleb triumphant in the land
of which they had together re reported
ported reported so favorably.
At last Joshua stands a mighty"
conqueror of a great land. He
had conquered it in God's own way.
He had no plan of campaign for
himself; he simply knew that the
land ought lo be Grd's," and he
was commanded to take it. And
he went ahead to take if, .mid each
hour and each day would God re reveal

then.
For such a man the sun stands
still always. For such a man the
world always turns into help Such
a man, like all the brave, fortune
favors. For such a man, who sets
the mark high, who is determined
to do great things for God, and
who feels commanded of God to
do this thing for all such women,
all such men, and such churches,
ors such enterprises the sun al always

is complete. Conwell.
