How People Feel When Drmo.— ld a recent sermon by the Rev. Henry Ward Beecher upon “ Death,” the preacher asked, “ How should a Christian look at death ?” Mr Beecher replied - “ Well/ in the first place, he should not look at it at all—on purpose. Or, if he looks at it, he should do so only to stimulate himself to lead a better life here, and not brood oyer the horrors of an imaginary hereafter.” People wondered how they Would feel when dying. “I’ll tell you how you’ll feel—most of you,” said Mr Beecher, “you’ll fell stupid ; that’s all you’ll feel. You’ll want to go to sleep. Dying is as easy as going to sleep, in most instances.” Once in a while there was a triumphant or a radiant death, but not once in a million times was there such a death as. is described in books. That was all “ flummery.” Mr Beecher attached no significance to the manner in which a man expired, as it was principally the result of physical accidents, and afforded no test of his moral state.
