Tabernacle to-day, after expounding pas
sages descriptive of the world as it shall be
when gospelized, Dr. Talmage gave out the

Text, Eevelations xix. 4: "Amen; Alle
luia." The nineteenth century is departing. After
it has taken a few more steps, if each year be a
step, it will be gone into the eternities. In a
short time we shall be in the last decade of this
century, which fact makes the solemcest book
outside the Bible the almanac, and the most
suggestive and the most tremendous piece of
machinery in all the earth the clock. The last
decad i of this century upon which we shall
soon enter will be the grandest, mightiest and
most decisive decado in all the chronologies. I
am glad it is not to come Immediately, for we
need by a new baptism or the Holy 'Ghost to
prepare for it. That last ten years of the nine
teenth century, may we all lire to see them!
Does anyone say that this division of time is
arbitrary? Oh, no; in other ajes the divisions
of time may haTe been arbitrary, but our years
date from Christ. Does anyone say that the
grouping of ten together is an arrangement
arbitrary? Ob, no; next to the figure seven, ten
is with God a favorite number. Abraham dwelt
ten years in Caanan. Ten righteous men
WOULD HATE SATED SODOM.
In the ancient tabernacle were ten curtains
their pillars ten and their sockets ten. In the
ancient temple were ten hirers and ten candle
sticks and ten tables, and a molten sea of ten
cubits. And the commandments written on
the granite of Mount Sinai were ten, and the
kingdom of God was likened to ten virgins,
and ten men should lay hold of him that was a
Jew, and the reward of the greatly faithful is
that they shall reign over ten cities, and In the
effort to take the census ot the Xe w Jerusalem
the number ten snings around the thousands,
crying "ten thousand times ten thousand." So
I come to look toward .the closing ten years of
the nineteenth century with an intensity of in
terest I can hardly describe.
I haTe also noticed that the favorite time in
many of the centuries for great events was the
closing fragment of the century. Is America
to be discovered, it must be in the last decade
of the fifteenth century, namely, 1192. Was
free Constitutional Government to be well es
tablished in America, the last years of the
eighteenth century must achieve it. Were
three cities to be submerged by one pitch of
scoriae, Herculanenm and Strabias and Pom
peii in the latter part of the lirst century mnst
go under. The f onrth century closed with the
most agitating ecclesiastical war of history.
Urban the Sixth against Clement the Seventh.
Alfred the Great closes the ninth cerftury, and
Edward Ironsides the eleventh century with
their resounding deeds. The sixteenth century
closed with the establishment of religious in
dependence in the United Netherlands. Aye,
almost every century has had its peroration of
overtowering achievements. As the closing
years of the centuries seem a favorite time for
great scenes of
EMANCIPATION OE DISASTER, I
end as the number ten seems a favorite num
ber in the Scriptures, written by divine direc
tion, and as we are soon to enter npon the last
ten years of the nineteenth century, what does
the world propose? What does the church of
Christ propose? What do reformers propose?
I know not; but now in the presence of this
consecrated assembly I propose that we make
ready, get all our batteries planted and all our
plans w ell laid in what remains of this decade,
- end then in the last decade of the nineteenth
century march up and take this round world
When 1 6ay we, I mean the 500,000,000 Christ
ians now alive. But, as many of them will not
have enough heart for the work, let us copy
Gideon, and as he had 32,000 men irrhis army
to tight the Midianitcs. hut many of them nero
not made of the right stuff, be promulgated
a military order saying: "Whosoever is fearful
and afraid let him return and depart early
from Gilead," and 22,000 were afraid of getting
liurtand wenthome. and onlylO.000 wereleft,and
God told them that even this reduced number
was too large a number, for they might think
they had triumphed independent of divine
help, and so the nuAer must be still further
reduced, and only those shonld be kept in the
Tanks who in passing the river should be so in
haste for victory over their enemies that,
though very thirsty, they would without stop
ping a second just scoop up the water in the
palm of their right baud and scoop np the
water in the palm of their left hand, and only
300 men did that, and those S00 men, with the
battle shout, "The sword of the Lord and of
Gideon," scattered the Midianites
LIKE LEATES IN AN EQUINOX,
Bo out of the 500,000,000 nominal Christians of
to-day let all unbelievers and cowards go home
and get out of the way. And suppose we have
only 400,000,000 left, suppose only 200,000,000
left, suppose only 100,000,000 left, yea, suppose
.we have only 50,030,000 left, with them we will
"undertake the divine crusade, and each one
just scooping up a palm full of the river of
God's mercy in one hand and a palm full of
God's strength in the other, let us with the cry,
'The sword of the Lord and of Gideon," the
eword of the Lord and of John Knox, the sword
of the Lord andof MatthewSimpson, tbe sword
of tbe Lord and of Bishop Mcilvanc, tbe sword
of the Lord and of Adomram Judson, the
sword of the Lord and of Martin Luther, go in
to tbe last decade of the Nineteenth century.
Is it audacious for me to propose it? Ob,
no; a captive servant in the-kitchen of Naaman
told tbe commander-in-chief where bo could
get rid of the blotches of his awful leprosy.and
bis complexion became as fair as a babe's. And
didn't Christ, in order to take the ophthalmia
out of the ejes of the blind man, use a mixture
of spittle and dnst? And wbb showed Blucter
a short cut for bis army, so that instead of
taking the regular road by which be would
have come up too late, he came up in time to
save Waterloo and Europe? Was it not an un
known lad, who perhaps could not write his
own name? And so I, "who am less than the
least of all saints." propose a short cut to vic
tory, and ant willing to be the expectoration on
some blind eye and tell some of the brigadier
generals of the Lord of Hosts how this
leprosied world may in the final decade of
the nineteenth century have its flesh come
again as tbe flesh of
A LITTLE CHILD.
Is there anything in prophecy to hinder this
speedy consummation? No. Someone begins
rto quote from Daniel about "time, times and a
half time," and takes from Revelation the
i seven trumpets, blowing them all at once in
t'xny ear. But with utmost reverence I take up
all tbe prophecies and bold them toward
tneaven and say God never ha! and never will
F stop consecrated effort and holy determination
' and magnificent resolve, and that if the church
of God will rise up to its full work it can make
Daniel's time 20 years and his half time 10
years. Neither Isaiah, nor Ezekielj nor Mlcab,
norMalachi, nor Jeremiah, nor any of tho ma
jor or minor prophets will hinder us a second.
Suppose the Bible had announced the millen

and times without number every day, and that
is wnen jus people pray, umn i ue change
His mind about Nineveh? By God's command
Jonah, at the top of his voice, while standing
on tbe steps of the Merchants' Exchange and
tbe palatial residences of that city, cried out:
"Yet 40 days and Nineveh shall be over
thrown." Was it overthrown in 40 days? No.
The people gave up their bins and cried for
mercy, and though Jonah got mad because his
whole course of sermons bad been spoiled and
went Into a disgraceful pouting, we have the
record so sublime I cannot read it without feel
ing a nervous chill rpnning through me. "God
saw their works that they turned from their
evil way, and God repented of the evil that He
had said He would do unto them and He did

fe Some time when we have promised chastise-
fement, and the child deserved it, tbe little
marling has pnt ber arms around our neck and
expresses such sorrow and such promises of
idoing better that her tears landed on the lips
of our kiss, and we held her a half hour after
on our knee and woald as soon think of slap
ping an angel in the face as of even striking
her with the weight of our little finger. God is
a!father, and while he has promised this world
scourglngs, thouch they were to be for 1,000
years or 5,000 years, he would, if the world re
pented, substitute benediction and divine
God changed his mind about I Sodom six
times. He had determined on its destruction.
Abraham asked him if be would not spare it if
50 righteous people were found there; and, nar
rowing down tbe number, if 45 people were
found there; If 40 people; if 30 people; if 20 peo
ple; if ten people were found there. And each
of the six times the Lord answered ves. Ob.
why didn't: Abraham cp on just two steps J
further and say if five be found there and if
one be found there, for then for tbe sake of Lot,
its one good citizen, I think Sodom would have
been spared. Eight times does the Bible say
that God repented when he had promised pun
ishments and withheld tbe stroke. Was it a
slip of Paul's pen when be spoke ot God's cut
ting short the work in righteousness? No,
Paul's pen never slipped. There is nothing in
the way of prophecyjo hinder the crusade I
have proposed for the last decade of
THE NINETEENTH CENTURY.
The whole rouble is that we put off the com
pletion of the world's redemption to such long
and indefinite distances. The old proverb that
"what is everybody's business is nobody's busi
ness," might bo changed a little and be made
truthfully to say what is the gospel business of
all tho ages is the gospel business of no age.
We are so constituted we cannot get up much
enthusiasm about something 500 years from
now or 1,000 years from now. We are fighting
at too long a range. That gun called the
"Swamp Angel" was a nuisance. It shot six
miles, but it hardly ever hit anything. It did
its chief destructive work when it burst and
lulled those who were setting it off. Short
range is the effective kind of work, whether it
be for worldly or religious purpose.
Some man with his eyes half shut drones out
to me tho Bible quotation: "A thousand years
are as one davr' that is, ten centuries are not
long for tbe Lord. But why do you not quote
the previous sentence, which says that one day
is with tbe Lord as a thousand years? That is,
be could do the work of ten centuries in 24
hours. The mightiest obstacle to Christian
work is the impression that the world's evan
gelization is away off. And we take the tel
escope and look on and on through centuries
until we see two objects near each other, and
we strain our vision and guess what they arc,
and We call great conventions to guess what
they arc, and we get down our heaviest theo
logical works and balance our telescopes on the
lid and look and look and finally conclude that
tbey are two'beasts that we see, and the one
has hair and the other has wool, and we guess
it must be the lion and the lamb lying down
together. In that great cradle of postpone
ment and somnolence we rock the church as
though it were
' AN IMPATIENT CHILD,
and say, "Hush, my dear, don't be impatient
Don't get excited by revivals! Don't cry!
Your Father's coming! Don't get uneasy! He
will be here in two or three or ten or twenty
thousand 5 ears." And we act as though we
thought that when Macaulay's famous New
Zealander In the far distance is seated on a
broken arch of London bridge sketching the
ruins of St. Paul's his grandchild might break
in and jolt bis pencil-by asking him if ho
thought tbe millennium ever would appear.
Men and women of the eternal God! Sons
and daughters of the Lord Almighty! We
may have it start in the decade that is soon to
commence, and it will be done if we can
persuade the people between now then to get
ready for the work.
vt nat makes me tmnK it can ue aoneT x irst,
because God is ready. He needs no long per
suasion to do His work, for if He is not willing
that any should perish. He is not willing that
any of tbe people of the next decade shall
perish; and the" whole Bible is a chime of bells
ringing out, "Come, come, come," and you need
not go round the earth to hud out how much
He wants tbe world to come,but just to walk
around one stripped and bard and leafless tree
with two branches, not arched, but horizontal.
But He is waiting, as he said He would, for tho
co-operation of the church. When we are
ready God is read v. And He certainly has all
the weaponry Teady to capture this world for
the truth, all tbe weapons of kindness or de
vastation. On the one band tbe gospel and
sunshine and po er to orchardize and garden
lze the earth, and fountains swinging in rain
bow and Chatsworthian verdure and aromas
poured out of the vials of hea en, while on the
other hand He has the weaponry of devasta
tion, thunderbolt and conflagration and forces
planetary, solar, lunar, stellar or meteoric, that
with loose rein thrown on the neck for a second
wonld leave constellations and galaxies so
many split and shivered wheels on
THE BOULEVARD'S OP HEAVEN.
And that God is on our side, all on our side.
Blessed be his glorious name! Blessed was the
hour when through Jesus Chnst my sinful soul
made peace with him!
If you continue to ask me why I think that
the world can be saved in the final decade of
the nineteenth century, I reply because it is
not a great undertaking, considering the num
ber of workers that will go at it, if once per
suaded it can be done. We have sifted tho
500,000,000 of workers down to 400,000,000, and
303,0000,000, and 200,000,000, and 100,000,000, and
to 50,000,000. 1 went to work to cipher out how
many souls that number could bring to God in
ten years. If each one brought a soul every
year, audit each soul so brought should bnng
another each succeeding year. I found out,
aided by a profesor in mathematics, that we
did not need anything like such a number of
workers enlisted. You see it is simply a ques
tion of mathematics and in geometrical pro
gression. Then I gave to the learned professor this
problem: How many persons would it require
t' start with if each one brought a soul into
the kingdom each year for ten years, and each
one brought another each succeeding year, in
order to have 1,400,000,000 people uvea, or the
population of the earth at present? His an
swer was 2,754,375 workers. So you see that
when I sifted the 500,000,000 nominal Christians
of the earth down to W3,000.000 and stopped
there, I retained for this work 47,000,000 people
too many. There it is in glorious mathematics,
quod erat demonstrandum. Do you tell me that
God does not care for mathematics? Then you
have never seen
THE GIANT'S CAUSE-WAY
where God shows His regard for the hexagonal
in whole rangesof rocky columns with six sides
and six angles. Then you have not studied
tbe geometry of h bee's honeycomb with six
sides and six angles. Then you have not no
ticed what regard God has for the square; the
altar of the ancient tabernacle four square, the
breast plate four square, the court of the tem
ple in Ezekiel's vision foursquare, the New
Jerusalem laid out four sqvfire. Or you have
not noticed His regard for the circle by making
It His throne, "sitting on the circle of the
earth," and fashioning sun and moon and stars
in a circle, and sending our planetary system
around other systems in a circle, and tbe whole
universe sweeping around tbe throne of God in
a circle. And as to His regard for mathemat
ical numbers. He makes the fourth book in His
Bible the Book of Numbers, and numbers the
hosts of Israel and numbers the troops of Sen
nacherib and numbers Solomon's hewers in tbe
forest and numbers tbe spearmen and numbers
tbe footmen and numbers tbe converts at Pen
tecost and numbers tbe chariots ot God roiling
down tbe steps of heaven.
So I have a right to enlist mathematics for
the demonstration of tbe easy possibility of
bringing tbe whole world to God in the coming
decade by simple process of solicitation, each
one only having to bring one a year; although
I want to take in 40,000. and I know men now
alive who I think, by pen or voice, or both,
directly or indirectly, will take hundreds of
thousands each. So you see that will discharge
some of tbe 2,754,375 from the necessity of
w"hy I know it can be done is tbat we may di
vide the work up among the denominations.
God does not ask any one denomination to do
the work or any dozen-denominations. The
work can be divided and is being divided up,
not geographically hut according to the tem
peraments of the human family. We cannot
say to one denomination. You take Persia, and
another. You take China, and another. You
take India, because there are all styles
of temperaments la all nations. And
some denominations are especially adapted to
n ork with people of sanguine temperament or
phlegmatic temperament or choleric tempera'
ment or bilious temperament or nervous tem
perament or lymphatic temperament. The
Episcopal Church will do its most effective
work with those who by taste prefer the stately
and ritualistic. The Methodist Church will do
its best work among the emotional and dem
onstrative. The Presbyterian Church will do
Its best work among those who like strong doc
trine and the stately service softened by the
emotional. So each denomination will have
certain kinds of people whom it will especially
affect. So let the work be divided up.
There are the750,000 Christians of the Presby
terian Church, North, and other hundreds of
thousands in the Presbyterian Church, South,
and all foreign Presbyterians, more especially
Scotch, English and Irish, making, I guess,
about 2,000,000 Presbyterians; tbe Methodist
Church is still larger; the Church of England,
on both sides tbe sea, still larger; and many
other denominations as much, if not morn, con
secrated than any I have mentioned. Divide
up the world's evangelization among these de
nominations after they are persuaded it can be
done before tbe nineteenth century is dead,
and the last Hottentot, the last Turk, tbe last
Japanese, the last American, tbe last European,
tbe last Asiatic, the last African, will see the
salvation of God before he sees the opening
THE TWENTIETH CENTUEY.
Again, I feel the whole world can be saved in
the time specified, because we have all manner
of machinery requisite. It is not as though we
had to build tbe printing presses; they are all
built and running day and night, those print
ing religious papers (925 of those religious
papers in this country), those printing religious
tracts and those printing religious books. And
thousands of printing presses now in tbe
service of tbe devil could be brought and set to
work in the service of God. Why was the
printing press invented? To turn out billheads
and circulars of patent medicines and tell the
news which in three weeks will be of no im
portance? From the old time Franklin printing
press on up to the Lord Stanhope's press and
the Washington press and the Victory press to
Hoe's perfecting printing Dress that machine
has been improving for its best work and its
final work namely, the publication of the glad
tidings of great joy which Bball be to all people.
We have the presses, or can have them Defore

begin, to put a Bible in the band of every son
and daughter of Adam and Eve now living,
and if such person cannot read we can have a
colportenr, an evangelist or missionary to read -it
to him or her.
But this brings me to tho adjoining thought,
namely, we havo tho money to do the work. 1
mean the 50,000,000 of Christians have it. Aye,
the 2,754,000 Christians havo it: and the dam
which is beginning to leak will soon break, and
there will be rushing floods of hundreds and
and millions and billions of dollars in holy con
tribution when you persuade the wealthy
men of the kingdom of God tnat tbe speedy'
conversion of the world is a possibility, and
that Isaiah and Ezekiel and Daniel and St,
John will not stand in the way of it, but help
it on. I have no sympathy with this
BOMBARDMENT OP RICH MEN.
We would each one be worth 55,000.000 If we
could, and by hard persuasion might perhaps
be induced to take $15,000,000. Almost every
paper I take up tells of some wealthy man who
has endowed a college or built a church or a
hospital or a free library, and that thing is go
ing to multiply until the treasury of all our de
nominations and reformatory organizations
will bo overwhelmed with munificence if we
can persuade our men of wealth that the
world's evangelization is possible and tbat they
may live to see it with their own eyes. I have
always cherished the idea tbat when the world
is converted we would be allowed to come out
on the battlements of heaven and see the ban
nered procession and the bonfires of victory.
But I would like to see the procession closer by
and just be permitted myself to throw on a
fagot for a bigger bonfire. And if you per
suade our men .of wealth that there is a possi
bility for them to join on earth in the universal
glee of a redeemed planet, instead or laborious
beseeching for funds and arguing and flattering
in order to get a contribution for Christian ob
jects onr men of wealth will stand in line as at
a postoffice window or a railroad ticket office,
but in this case waiting for their turn to make
The Gentiles are not long going to allow
themselves to be eclipsed by Mr. Hirsch, the
Hebrew who has justgivenf40,000,000forschools
in France, Germany and Russia. I rejoice that
so much of the wealth of the world is coming
into tbe possession of Christian men and
women. And although the original church
was very poor, and its members were fish
dealers on the banks of Galilee, and had only
such stock on hand as tbey could take in their
own net, to-day in the bands of Christian men
and women there is enough money to print
Bibles and build churcbes and support mis
sionaries under God in ten years to
SAVE THE WORLD.
Again, I think that the world's evangelization
can be achieved in the time SDecified because
we have already the theological institutions
necessary for this work. We da not have to
build them: they are built and they are filled
with tens of thousands of young men and there
will be three sets of students who will graduate
into the ministry before the close of this cen
tury, and once have them understand tbat in
stead of preaching 30 or 40 j cars and taking
to the kingdom of God a few hundred souls,
right before them is the Sedan. Is the Arma
geddon, and these young men, instead of en
tering the ministry timid and with apologetic
air, will feel like David who came up just as
the armies were set in array and be left bis car
riage and shouted for the battle and cried:
"Who is this uncircumcised Philistine that
he should defy the armies of the living God?"
and with five gravel stones skilfully flung sent
sprawling the bragging ten-footer, his mouth
into tbe dust and his heels into the air.
My friends, what but such a consummation
could be a fit climax to this century? You no
tice a tendency irf history and all about us to a
climax. The creation week rising from herbs
to fish and from fish to bird and from bird to
quadruped and from quadruped to immortal
man. The New Testament rising from quiet
genealogical table in Matthew to apocalyptio
doxology in Revelation, Now, what can be an
appropriate climax to this century, which has
beard the puff of tbe first steamer and tbe
throb of the first stethoscope and the click of
tbe first telegraph and the clatter of tho first
sewing machine, and saw the flash of the first
electric light and tbe revolution of the first
steam plow, and the law of storms was written,
and the American Bible Society and American
Tract Society were bom; and instead of

and Micronesia and Melanesia and Malayan
Polynesia have been set in the crown of Christ,
and David Livingstone has unveiled Africa and
tbe last bolted gate of barbaric nations has
swung wide dpen to let the gospel in. What, I
ask, with a thousand interrogation points up
lifted, can be a fit, an appropriate and suf
ficient climax except It be a world redeemed?
Yea, I believe it can be done if we get pre
pared -for it, because the whole air and the
whole heaven is full of willing help. "Are
they not all ministering spirits sent forth?"
Ve make an awful mistake if we calculate
only on the forces we can see. The mightiest
army is in the air. My brethren, so much of
selfishness and pride and rivalry and bad mo
tives of all kinds get into our work here that
we are hindered. But tbe mighty souls tbat
have gone up to tbe flying armies of tho sky

souls are with us and without a fault and with
perfect natures aro on our side. You cannot
make me believe that aftertoilipg here lor long

PAROCHIAL SCHOOLS DEFENDED.
A New England Priest Tells Why Catholics
Boston, April 14. The Committee on
Education at the State House has been oc
cupied ior several days hearing parties in
terested on both sides of the parochial school
question. The Rev. Father Bodfisb, of
Canton, occupied all the time yesterday. In
the course of his talk he said: '
"Why do Catholics wish their children edu
cated In parochial schools? Because they have
a prof onnd conviction tbat religious and secular
education should go hand in hand. They see
75 per cent of the youth of this country grow
ing up aud not following the faith of their fath
ers. They have not sufficient reverence for it
to connect themselves with any church. They
are growing up materialists and agnostics, and
right here you have tbe "milk in the cocoa
nut.' "The Catholic portion of this community
knows very well that the public schools do de
Catholicize their children. And tbat is just the
object of this movement. Do not deceive your
selves, Mr. Chairman and gentlemen, by think
ing its advocates are influenced by solicitude
for the children. That is not it. It is because
they see in the public schools a mighty engine
for destroying the faith of Catholic children,
and Protestants themsewes have acknowl
edged this. I can produce documentary evi
dence to prove my assertion, if desired."

To linger in survival.

To somo detested rival.

ihe glory of the sunset or the
splendor of the Buby.
Perfect Rubies are exceedingly
rare. Color and clearness are the
qualities sought. Bach Buby has
also its own degree of brilliancy.
In seeking for the single word
best expressive of the character of
this jewel, we should choose
"warmth" rather than "richness."
There is in the stone a peculiar
glow which is the very warmth of
its life-blood color and the charm
of its being.

convinced that it was hot too late to be
cured, An operation was performed, and the
deformity entirely removed, and although it is
now three years since the operation, her cure
has remained permanent. She'walksperfectly,
and has no further use for a high heel shoe.
