Dr. Tal mage on Analogy Between
the Moral and Physical.
OP HEREDITY'S INFLUENCE
Harmonious Effects' Follow Every
"Word or Action Inevitably .Eter
nity a Reverberation of Time.
Time a Bedwnrfed Eternity Fu
ture Statean Echo o Present Life.
Rev. Dr. Tal mage preached on "Echoes"
at the First Presbyterian Church yesterday
morning, and on a text from Ezekiel,
vii, 7 "The .sounding again of the mount
ains." lie spoke, in part, as follows:
"The Bible has in it a recognition of
all phases of the natural world, but the
well-known sound that we call the echo I
found not until I discovered it in my
"Greek mythology represented Echo as
a nymph, the daughter of Earth and Air,
following Narcissus through forests and
Into grottoes and every whither, and so
strange and wierd and startling is the
echo I do not wonder that the supersti
tious have lifted it into the supernatural.
You and I in boyhood or girlhood ex
perimented with this responsiveness of
sound. Standing half way between the
house and barn, we shouted many a time
to hear the reverberations, or out anting
the mountains buck of our home, on seine
long tramp, we stopped and made excla
mation with full lungs Just to hear what
E?ekiel calls "the sounding again of the
mountains." The echo lias frightened
many a child and many a man.
"But have you noticed and this is the
reason for the present discount that this
echo in the natural world has its analogy
In the moral and religious world? Have
you noticed the tremendous fact that what
we say and do comes back in recoiled
gladness or disaster? About this re
sonance I preach this sermon.
"Parental teaching and example have
their echo in the character of the de
6cendanLs. -The general rule is that good
parents have good children. If the old
man is a crank, the son is apt to be a
crank, and the grandchild a crank. The
tendency is .so mighty in that direction
that it will get worse and worse unless
some hero or heroine in that line shall
rise and say: 'Here! By the help or God,
I will stand this no longer. Against this
hereditary tendency to queerness I pro
test. And he or she will set up an
altar and a niagnifleent life that will re
verse things aud there will he no more
cranks among that kindred. In another
family the father and mother are conse
crated people. What they do is right;
what they teach is right. The boys may
for some time be wild and the daughters
worldly, but watch! Years pass on per
haps ten years, twenty years and the son
and daughter of that family, who did not
promise much at the start, are now a
glorious echo of parental teaching and
"While opportunities fly in a straight
line and Just touch us once and are
gone the wrongs we practice upon others
fly in a circle, and they come back to
the place from which they started. So,
also, the judgment day will be an echo
of all our other days. The universe needs
such a day, for there are so many things
in the world that need to be fixed up and
explained. If God had not appointed
such a day nil the nations would cry
out: "Oh, God, give us a Judgment day."
But we are apt to think of it and speak
about it as a day away off in the future,
having no special connection with this day
or any other day. The fact is that we are
now making up its voices, and its trumpets
will only sound back .again to us what we
now say and do. That is the meaning ot
all that Scripture which says that Ghrist
will on that day address the soul, saying:
'I was naked and ye clothed me; I was
sick and in prison aud ye visited me.'
Louder than the crash of Mount Wash
ington falling on its face in the world
wide catastrophe, and the lwillng of the
sea over the furnaces of universal con
flagration, will be the echo and the re
echo of the good deeds done, and tho
sympathetic words uttered, and the mighty
"Eternity itself is only an echo of time.
Mind you. the analogy warrants my saying
this. The echo Is not always exactly In
kind like the sound originally projected.
Lord Raleigh says that a woman's voice
sounding from a grove was returned an
octave higher. A scientist playing a flute
in Fairfax county, Va., found that all the
notes were returned, although some of
them came in raised pitch. A trumpet
sounded ten times near Glasgow, Scot
land, and the ten notes were all repeated,
but a third lower. And the spiritual law
corresponds witli the natural world.
"What we do of good or bad may not
come back to us in just the proportion we
expect it, but come back it will.
"Ou r own eternity will be a reverberation
of our own earthly lifetime. Dissolution
will tear down the body and embank it
but our faculties of mind and soul will
go right on without the hesitancy of a
moment and without any change, except
enlargement and intensiiication. Good
here, good there; bad here, bad there.
Time is only a bedwarfed eternity. Eter
nity is only an enlarged time. In this
life our soul is in dry dock. The moment
we leave this life we arc launched for
our great voyage, and we sail on for
centuries quintillian, but the ship does
not change its fundamental structure
' after it gets out of the dry dock.
"The hardest thing in this world to do
1b to stop an echo. Costly churches,
cathedrals, theaters, and music halls have
been ruined by an echo.
"And, if it is f o hard to destioy a natural
echo, how much harder to stop a moral
echo, a spiritual echo. You know that
echoes are affected by Die sin faces, and
the shape of the rocks, and the depth of
ravines, and the relative position of build
ings? And, once in heaven, God "will so
arrange the relative positions of mansions
and temples and thrones that one of the
everlasting charms of heaven will be the
rolling, bursting, ascending, descending,
chanting echoes. In the future state,
whether of rapture or juin, we will listen
for revcrbations of earthly things and
"But you know as well asl do thattliere

At the Church of Our Father yesterday
niorniug, Rev Mr Rogers anticipated
the lecture tp be delivered at night by
Col Ingersoll and replied to it. He ex
plained that although he had not heard
the lecture, he thought he knew about the
line of reasoning air. Ingersoll would
Mr. Rogers said the people ot the world
can be divided into three classes, the
pessimists, optimists, and those who hold
a nobler thought than either. He believed
that Col. Ingersoll had something ot the
last-named in him. He said it grieved
him and it was not quite fair in Mr. Inger
soll to take a narrow and bigoted view
of Christianity and hold it up as the true
mirror of the belief. It is not right to
take the mistakes of Christians and call
them Christianity. "When Col. Ingersoll
speaks of Christianity he refers to the
church as it existed fifty years ago, not
to the church of today. The leaven of the
truth has been working and we of the
advanced churches have seen it and felt
it. The raise doctrines of the past have
given way to the truth of the Gospels
and hell is being taken out of the hearts
of men and the religion of love substi
tuted. "It is no strange thing to see
ministers get up in the most orthodox
pulpits and preach what would have been
considered sacrilegious a halt century
"The church of today is following more
closely the teachings of the Master. It
is finding out that the work for it to
do iB not in 'tho stars, but in the streets.
It is being of more and more practical
service to humanity, uplifting the down
trodden, making happy the miserable,
and leading the sinful into paths of
righteousness. The church can be found
in all good works, in all reform measures.
"There is a class of people In the
world who think that political reform
is what is needed, that the election of
purer men to office, the making of better
laws, would cure the ilLs of man. There
are others who believe in social reform.
Then there are others who belong to
the philanthropic school, nnd I would
think from what I have heard, of him
that Col. Ingersoll belongs to this school.
They believe that tho rich should be
taught to give of their plenty to the
poor; and there is the school of ethical
enthusiasm, to which he also belongs.
I call it the school of ethical enthusiasm
because that is a broader term than
ethical culture. All these people work
for progress, but all such movements are
sporadic and ephemeral in their char
acter. They do not reach down into
the heart of man.
"These words of Cai lisle contain the pith
and point of my sermon this morning.
'Man seeks a more radical redemption tlmn
iu contained in your philanthropy.'
"These reformers work fiom the circum
ference to the center instead of from the
center to the circumference. They believe

THK SECULAR LEAGUE.
"What Are Women Ilere EorV" the
There was a large audience present yes
terday afternoon at the Secular League
meeting in Typographical Temple. Dr.
E. B. Foot, jr., of New York city, was the
speaker. He said in part:
"The story that woman was made as a
mere helpmeet to man has held her in sub
jection to man these thousands of years.
As people lose reverence for this old story,
woman has gained more and more liberty.
"With her emancipation from superstition
and man's domination comes the emanci
pation of the human race.
"Woman molds the futuie of the race
by the culture and training of her children.
Enlarging woman's field of occupation
has raised her wages. But she is often
less fitted thereby to rear children. The
catechism women have hitherto learned is:
'What are .women here for? To glorify
man and serve him.'
"When woman comes to understand that
her highest duty is the philosophic propa
gation and education or coming genera
tions, then will she best know and do that
which she is here for."
The address was followed by a friendly
criticism by Dr. Joseph Steiner, who said
that while an apprentice must first learn
the use of his tools, yet the woman who to
day knows the least about the subject now
under discussion is considered the best
fitted to marry. Prof. Hyland C. Kirk,

THE McKES-LEX TEDIGREE.
Real American Claim of the
Man to Distinction.
It has been known to all. says the Chi
cago Dally News, that McKinley came
from good old Scotch stock, which thrived
and wore kilts and tartans centuries before
Columbus was born. But everybody did
not know that he traced his lineage back
to the ninth century, as a recent investiga
tion proves. According to this authority
the McKinley tribe is as follows:

This is interesting so far as the genealo
gist Is concerned, but the more recent pedi
gree of McKinley is more so to the layman
and is as follows, dating-from 1861:
William McKinley, soldier; the Hon. Wil

tarirf bill: the Hon. William McKinley,
governor; the Hon. William McKinley,

THE CARDINAL OFFICIATED
arge Class of Applicants Confirmed
The Ceremony "Witnessed by $
Great Many People Re marts
by the Cardinal.
His Eminence, Cardinal Gibbons, con
firmed a large class of applicants yester
day afternoon at St. Theresa's Church,
Anacostia. The candidates for conrirma
tion numbered nearly 175, ranging in
age from twelve to sixty years. They
were white and colored, and or both sexes.
The ceremony, which took placa about
3 o'clock, was witnessed by the largest
congregation ever seen in the church. Be
sides the candidates and the members oC
the congregation, there were also present
a large number ot Catholics from this
city. The two center aisles, which had
been reserved for the applicants, were
scarcely able to accommodate those to be
Before the ceremony the applicants wera
assembled at the residence of Father Sulli
van, the rectorot St. Theresa's, wherethey
were classified according to age and sex.
The boys were the first to enter, and were
closely followed by the adults. Next
came the girls, dressed in white, wearing
long white veils and with a. circlet of
white flowers on their heads. Behind
the girls came the adult females.
Before administering the rite of con
firmation Cardinal Gibbons spoke briefly
to the applicants, calling attention to
the solemnity of the occasion.
The cardinal took his seat immediately
in front of the altar. The candidates
passed up the center aisle and kneit at
his feet, where they each kissed the car
dinal's ring and received his blessing,
and also the loving slap on their cheeks.
When they were all seated again the
cardinal admonished them to be ever
mindful of the vows they had taken. There
is an infallible way, he said, to tell
whether the grace ot God remains with
us. The spirit of God U a spirit of
prayer and will influence ns to pray
both day and night.
It Is a great mistake, Cardinal Gibbons
said, to believe that God Is far away
from us and hard to communicate with.
This Idea is, no doubt, due to the fact
that great men are difficult to approach.
Undoubtedly many present, though liv
ing but a few hundred yards from the
White House, had never seen President
Cleveland. There was reason for this.
The President has a great deal to at
tend to; he has his correspondence, bis
Cabinet meetings and committee meet
ings to take up his time, and then some
times he went fishing. It is not so, how
ever, with our Lord. We are nis only
and special care; His eyes are always
upon us, nnd his ears are always open
to our prayers. In conclusion he called
to their attention the necessity of obe
dience, and finally made them all repeat
aloud arter him the temperance pledsre.
Assisting the cardinal were Father
O'Brien, of St. Peter's; Father MeCauIey,
from rrovidence. Hospital, and father
Sullivan, who had immediate charge of the
children. Within the chancel were Fath t
Matthews, of- St. Cyprian, and Father
Beavcn.fromthc Church ot thelmmaculato
The music, which was by the clwdr of St
Theresa, assisted by singers from Wash
ington, was In charge of Miss Nannie Ker
nan. Solos were sung by Mr. Robert
Green and Mr. John Arendea.
