New York. Jnn. 20.
On t lie occasion of tlic twentieth an
xlvcrsarj of the llovvery mission, Jan
svary in, Dr. Talma (re preached to 0 v nst
audience at the New York Academy
of Music. Ministers of all denomina
tions were present. The text was,
John 10:10: "Other sheep 1 hae which
arc not of this fold."
'i'lieielsnoinonopolj in religion. 'Ilia
rjrrncu of God Is not a little property
-that c can fence oft and have nil to
ourselves. It is not a kind's park, at
which we look through a barred gate
way, wishing that we might go In and
ore the statuary aud the deer and the
royal coiiscrvntorj. No; It Is a Fa
ther's orchard, and cverj where there
are bats that we may let down and
fates that we mnj swing open.
J11 inj hojliooel, next to the country
xchoolhou.se there was an orchard of
.apples owned bj a very lame man, who,
although there were apples In the
;placc perpetually decaying and by
ncores and scores of bushels, never
would allow nnj of ns to touch the
fruit. Sometimes the lads of the
school in the sinfulness of a nature
Inherited f 1 om our first parents, who
were ruined bj the same temptation,
invaded that orchard, but thej soon re
treated, for the man came after them
nt n speed reckless of making his lame
jiess worse and cried out: "Hojh, drop
those apples, or I will set the dog on
Well, my friends, there are Christian
men who lime the church under severe
guard. There is fruit in this orchaid
for the whole world, but thej lime n
rough and utisj mpnthetlo way of ac
costing outsiders, as though they had
110 business there, though the Lord
wants to ionic and take the choicest
and the ripest fiult on the premises.
Jlac jou nil idea that because j oil were
"baptized at eight months of age, and
because jou hne all jour life been un
der hallowed Influence, jou there
fore have a right to one whole side ol
the Lord's table, spreading yourself
out nnd taking up the entire room?
I tell you no. You will have to haul in
jour elbows, for we will place on either
side of jou those whom jou never ex
pected would sit there, for, as ChrlBt
said to Ills people long ngo. so He sajs
to jou and to me: "Other sheep 1 have
which are not of this fold."
McDonald, the Scotchman, has thou
sands o? lietuliif sheep. Some of them
nre browsing on the henther. some of
them are Ijlnjr down under the trees,
ome nre sti oiling over the mountains,
omc of them are in his j ard. Thej are
scattered all around in inanj- places.
Cameron, his neighbor, conies over and
njs "1 see jou have 3(1 sheep. I have
just counted them." ".'o," sajs Mc
Donald, "I have a great innnj- more
tdiccptliniijoufotinil in thlsjaid. Some
.arc heie, and some are elsewhere. I
have 4,000 or 5,000 in mj flocks. 'Other
fluep I have which are not of this
fold.'" So Christ sav s to us. Here Is
-n knot of Cluistlans and there a knot
r Christians, but thej make up n small
part of the flock. Here Is the Kpiseo
l).il fold, the Methodist fold, the Luth
eran fold, the Congifg.1tio11.1l fold, the
Tresbjteilnn fold, the Jiaptlst and the
I'edo-lluptlst fold, the onlj dlHerence
between these last two being the waj
in which thej wash the sheep, and so
Jhcj aie sonneted all over. And we
come with our statistics and sav there
are so mail thousand of the l.oi el's

JiimiiI nnd the bund of eternal life in

111c, nuked, and o clothed me, sick nnd
in prison, and jo visited me. Inasmuch
os je did It unto one of the lenit
of these, je did It to me." It Ik through
this Gospel that New Yoik Is to, be
rtnken for Ood, and Ameiien for (Jod,
and thu world for (lod. 'lheie nre two
classes of heuiers in this audience
-whom I especially nddrcss, the friends
of tills Institution who have come out
fo show their inteiest In the work, and
the other class made up of tlios"e who
ure astinj, but want to get back, have
.fallen, but want to rise.
We need as chinches to get into sj in

shepherd will find man sheep nmld
the iionchurchgoers. '1 lie re aie con
gregations where they nre all Chris
tians, and the seem to be completely
finished, and the icinlnd one of the
skeleton leaves which by chemical
preparation have had ail the greenness
and verdure taken on them and are
left cold and white and delicate, noth
ing wnntlng but a glass ease to put
over them, The minister of Christ has
nothing to do with such Christians but
to comu once a week and with ostrich
feather dust oft the accumulation of
the last sK das, leaving them bright
nnd crstnlllne as before. llut the
other kind of church Is nn armor,
with perpetual sound of di 11m and fife,
gnthering recruits for the Lord ol
Hosts and salng to ever applicant:
"Do jou want to be on Ood's side, the
safe she and the happy side? If so,
come in the armor and get equipped.
Here Is n bath In which to be cleansed.
Here nre sandals to put on our feet.
Here is u helmet for our blow. Here
is a breastplate for 0iir heart. Here
Is n sword for our right arm, and
onder is the battlefield. Quit our
selves like men."
I remark again the llenvenly Shep
herd is going to find n great man of
his sheep niuong thoe who nre now re
jectee s of Christianity Some of the
mightiest ndvoeates of the (lospel were
once skeptics. 'I lioinn-CIiiilmeTsonce

Christmas Kvans a skeptic. Chillies G.

once 11 skeptic. Hut when once with
strong hand thej laid hold of theOos
pel chariot the' rolled It on with what
momentum! I do not know how jou
came to 1 eject Christianity. It ma
have betm thiough the Infidel talk of
some joung man in the stoic or simp or
factor. It 11111 have been through the
tiiekery of some piofcssul Christian
man who disgusted ou with religion.
It tun be that 30 jeais ago jou lost
all faith b what happened In an oil
compaii which vvns formed nmld the
petroleum excitement. 'I he coin

ing what fabulous prospects opined
before this compuii. The circular had

nbojit this compnii), but so man) good
men are at the head of it that It must
be excellent and hiking stock in it
must be almost as good as joining the
church." So tiny bought tlitlr stock
and perhaps received one dividend to
keep them still, llut nfter awhile tlie
found that the coiupnnj had reorgan
ised and had a dillerent president, a
dllTerent treasurer and different di
rect ins. Other engagements or nn

former ofliieis of the companj, with
man) regiets, to resign, and all that
the siiliscilbiis for the stock had to
show foi their Investment wns.i beau
tifully ornamented certificate. Some
times that niiin, looking over his old
pupns comes ncioits that ceitlfle.ite,
aud it is so suggestive that he vtis he
wants none of the leliglou that the

Oi jou maj have become skeptical
from the fact that jou grew up in a
home wheie religion vvns overdone
anuria was the most awful ilav In the
week. You had leligion dilveu Into
)Oii with 11 trip haiiiiui'i. You vveie
siiifeitid witli piaver ineetJugs. You
vveie stulled and choked Willi on Is
chium. You were often told that nil
vveie tin waist bu join piiieuts ever
knew liecnuwe ,vou liked to iide down
hill bcttci than to lead llunj.iii's "l'il
gllm's I'logiess," Wheiicvei )our
father and mother lalktd leligion the)
drew down the eoineis of their mouths
'and lolled up their ejes, If an) one
thing will send a bo) to ruin sooner
than another, that Is it.
llut 1 do not stop now to know how
)ou camu Into rejection of Christian
it. You frank!) tell me that jou do
reject it, Yoli do not believe that Clnist
Is a Divine being, although )ou admit
that lie was a veiy good man. You
do not believe that the lilble was in
splied of Ood, although ) o"n think there
are some ver) fine things In It, You
believe that the Scriptural description
of Uden vvns on!) nn ullegor), Theiu
are 50 things that I believe that )ou
do not believe, and jet jou arc an tic-.
(omiiioilatlug man, Kvetjbody that
knows )OU s.i)s that of )nu, If I should
ask )ou to do 11 kindness for 1110 01 If
an) one else should ask of j on a kind
ness, )ou vvoii'd do It. If, when jou
are ill, I should tome to )ou with a
vial of medicine' and sa) : "This kind
of medicine cuicd 50 people who vveie
just as baell) oil as )ou 111 e; take It,"
and jou leplled: "1 do not want to
take It; I have no lonfldiniu In It," 1
would ki) : "Take it to oblige me," and
jou would sa) ; "Well, If It u 111 accom
modate )ou 1 will take It." Now.) 011
have found that this world is liisulli
elent and j oil aie sick of sin. 1 come
to ou with a (lospel medicine, It has
cuied hundiedb and thousands and mil
lions. Will ou take It? "No," j 011
sa) , "I have no confidence in It." Tako
it, then, to oblige uie. I tell jou of a Phj-
tlelun who has cuied moie blind ees
and bound up more broken hearts, and
healed more ghastl) wounds than all
the doctors since Jhe time of 1'sculn
plus. He obliging and just make the
experiment. If 3 011 nre not acquainted
with the ordinal') modes of pra)er, say
in substance: "O Lord .testis, tills Is u
strange thing for me to do, I know
nothing nbout the formulas of reli
gion. These Christian people have been
talking so long about what thou canst
do for me I am read) to do whatever
thou commandest inc. If there be an)
power in religion, as these people say,
let me have the ndvantnge of It." Will
jou not trj- that experiment?
1 do not now say there is an) thing
in religion. Do not take in) counsel
or the counsel of an) clcrg)inan, for
ou may dislike clerg)mcii. Perhaps
wo ma) talk professional!). Perhaps
we ma) be prejudiced In the matter.
Perhaps our advice is not worth tak
ing. Then take the counsel of some
very respectable la) man, ns John Mil
ton, the poet; as William Wllberforce,
the emancipator; as Isaac New ton, the
astronomer; as Itobcrt Uo)lc, the phil
osopher; as Locke, the metnphslclan;
ns Morse, the telegrapher; as Washing
ton, tho statesman. They never
preached or pietended to preach, )ct,
putting down one his telescope and an
other Ills parliamentarian's scroll and
another his electrician's wire, came
jortli unu commenucd tile religion of
Chi 1st ns the best thing for the cure
of the world's woes. If jou will not
take the recommendation of ministers
of the (lospel, take the recommendation
of highly respectable laj men.
Oh, men, skeptical and struck
through with unrest 1 I beg jou to
come olT that great Snharn desert of
doubt into the bright nnd luxuriant
land of Gospel hope nnd pence You
do not want jour children to como
up in that skepticism. If )ou do not
believe in nil) thing else, jou believe
in love a father's love, a mother's
love, a wife's love, a child's love. Then
let inc tell )ou that God loves )ou
more than nil these together. Tho
great heart of Christ aches to havo
)ou come In, and He looks into jour
c)es this moment, Rii)lng: "Other

Again, I remark that tho Heavenly
Shephcid is going to find a great
many of the sheep among those who
have been full of evil habit. They
were all cheated Into sin. The spider

me on this suspension bridge of gos

There are those who talk as though
the grace of God were n chain of 40
or 50 links nnd that when they had

they would look longer among the
