When some of those eutting, harp, blijfhtinif words have been sp3lcen, whii'li se id the hot, iudignant blood to the face and head, if those to whotu they are addressed keep silent, look on with awe - for a mighty work is (joingon within them, and the spirit of evil, or their guardiƔn angel, is very ncar to them in that hour - during the pause they have made a i-tcp toward heaven or holl. and an itom lias been soored in tho book which the day of udguient shall sec opened. They aiv the strong ones who tnow how to keep silenoe when il is puin and a grief to ihoni - those who give time to their own souls to wax strong against temptation, or to the powers of' wrath to stamp upoo them their passage.
