SERMON BY IR. TALIAGE
THE ROYAL BLOOD OF JESUS THE
.SUBJECT OF THE DISCOURSE.
Good Christians Are All the Subjects of
the Great King of the Universe-Graphic
Picture of the King's 'state-.Oh, for the
Rtenion of Saints
Btoiclyx, Dec. 6.-This morning
the vast congregation which filled every
-ilable space in the Talbernacle at the
\ning of the service sang with great
.artness and evident feeling Cowper's
well known hymn beginning:
There is a fountain filled with blood
Drawn from Innan iel's veins
The subject of Dr. Talmage's sermon
was "Royal Blood,'' and his text, 'Jud
ges viii, 18, "Each one resinbled tbe
children of a king."
Zebah and Zalmunna had been oil to
battle, and when they came back they
were asked what kind of people they had
scen. They answered that the people
had a royal appearance; "each one re
sembled the children of a king." I
Btand today before lany who have this
appearance. Indeed, they are the sons
and daughters of the Lord Almighty.
Though now in exile, they shall yet
come to their thrones. There are faim
ily names that stand for v. calth or pa,
riotism or intell'gence. The name of
Washington means patriotism, although
some of the blood of that race has 1:
co,je very thin in the last generation.
The fainily of Medici stood as the repre
sentative of letl- s.
The fally o. the Rothschilds is sihni
licant of wealth, te loss otfo y Iillions
of follars in 1848 putt; ig thei to io in
convenience; and within a few years
they have loaned ussia twelve millions
of dollars, Naples twenty-live millions,
Austria forty millions and England t% o
hundred millions; and the stroke of their
peii on tile counting room deak shakes
everything from the Irish sea to tI'e
Danube. They open their hand, and
there is war; they sinit, U, and there is
peace. The house of llapshurg in Aus
tria, the house of Stuart in England, tio
house of JMourboR in France were fiami
lies of imperial authoritY.
Rit I come to preach of a fit:ily more
)of- Itial, more rich and more extensive
--thle royal house of Jesus, of whom the
whole f4vmily in heaven anti on earth is
naded. We are blood relations by tile
relationship of the Cross; till of us are
the children of the King.
First, I Speak of our finily nanie.
When we ace a descendant of some olle
greatly celebrated in the last cevtury wc
look at him with prolound interest. To
have had coz<luerorz, kings or irikees in
the ancestral line give luster to the fmtni
ily niame. In our line was a king and a
conqueror. The Star in the East with
haton ot lighZ woke 111 the eternal or
cliestra that niade music at his birth.
From thence he sLarted.forth to conquer
all nations, iot by tramping thon down,
but, by lifting themil up. St. Jolin ,- w
hii on a white horse. When lie returns
he will not briug the nations chained to
his wheel or in iron cages; but I hear the
stroke of the hoofi of the inow whfito
cavalcade that bring them to the gates
Our Ihmily nlamlo takes luster rm tim

that pierced him, ond the crown that
was given him. lI gathers fragrilco

ness. Into is se'rmions. anid the box of
~lahaster that brogke at his feet. Tho
comi'atur at Befihanuy. Tlhe resurrec tor
at Nain. Th'i sulpernlatural oculist at
Bethisaida. The Saviour of one world,
anid tile chief joy of anothier. Th'le storm
his irowna. Tbc sunlight his smile. The
spring wrorning his breath. The earth

der the whisper of his voice. Thie ocean
a drolp on the tip o1 is linger. IIeaven
a sparkle oil tile bosomr of his love.
E.ternity the twinkling of-htis eye. The
imiiverse tihe flymng dust of' his chariot
wheels. Able to heal a heartbreak, or
hush a templlest, dlrowni a world, or flood
immensity withl his glory. What other
family name couldi ever boast of' such an
illus trious personage?
henceforth, awing out the coat of'
arms! Great families wear their coat oft
ai ms on the dress, or on tile dloor of the
coach, or on the helmet when they go
oat to battle, or on flngs andh ensigns.
Tile hleraldic sign is sometimes a lion, or
an eagle. Our coat of arms, worn right
over the heoart, hereafter shall be a cross,
a lamb standing under it and a dlove fly
ing over it. Grandest of all escutcheons!
Most significant of all family "coats of
ars. In every battle I must have it
blazing on my flag-t.he (love, the cross,
the iamb, and when I fall wrap~ me i
that good old Christian flag, so that, the
family cent of ar.as shall be right over
my breast, that, all the wverld may see
that I looked to the clove of the spirit,
anti clung to thle cross, andl depended(i
upoa tile Lamb of God. whlichl taketh
atway tile sinl of tihe world.
Ashamed of Jesus-that dear friend.
On whom my hopes of life deeid;
No! when I blush be this my shiamte
T1hat I no more revere his name.
Next I speak of the family sorrows.
If trouble colme to oiie nlmiber of tile
family, all feel it. It is thle custom, auf
ter the body is lowered irt.o tie
grave, for all the relatives to cotie to the
.veige of the grave and loo1k diown into it.
- First those nearest tihe dlelartedi come,
.then those next, of kill, until they have
all looked into the grave. So' when
trouble andi grief go diown through the
heart of' one member of' t'io humil y, they
go down through thleml all. Th'le sadnmess
of one is the sadlness of all.
A company of porsons iomi hiandsa
aroundi an electric battery; t'he two per
sons at the ends of-the line touch the
battery, and all the circle feels the shock,
Thus, by reason of the lilial, maternal
and paternal relations of life, we stand
' so close together that wlhen trouble sets
its battery all feel the thrill of dlistress,
In the great Christian family tile sorrow
of one ought to be the sorrow of all. Is
one persecuted? All are persecuted.
Does one suffer loss? We all suff'er
loss. Is one bereaved? We are all
Their streaming eyes togetheri flow
For human guilt and mortal woe.
If you rejoice at another's misf ortunie
you are not one of' the sheep,.but one of
the goats, and the vulture of sin hath
alighted on your soul, and not the dove
of the spirit.
Next I notice the family property.
After a man of large estate diles the rc
latives assemble to hear the will read.
8o much of the property is willed to his
sons, and so much to his daughters, and
Lso much to benevolent societies. Our
Lord Jesus bath died, and we are as
semibled today to hear the will read.

In distinguished families there are o
pictures hanging on the wall. They ar(

They are old and have (come down fren

So I look upon all the beauties of th(
natural world as the heirlooms of out
royal family. The morning breaks fron

Soimo of your families are very much
sce tered. The children married, and
we!t oil' to St. Louts or Chicago or Char

come together at the old place. H1ow
you wake up the old piano that has been
silint for years! (Father and mother
do not play on it.) llow you brlng out
the old relies, and rummage the garret,
and open old scrapbooks, and shout and
cry and talk over old times, and, though
you may be forty-five years of age, act
ai 0hough you were sixtecn! Yet, soon
it is goodby at tho.- car window, and
goodby at tte steamboat whart. But
how will we act at the reunion in the
old family mansion of heaven? It is u

A BRIEF SYNOPSIS OF THE WORK
DONE BY THE BODY.
The Attendance of Dolegates Not Quito
as Large as Usual, but the Interest in
the Work of the Church Unabated.
SPARTANBURG, S. C., DeC. 10.-The
Baptist State Convention, which con
vened here on the 3d instant in the new
and handsome Baptist Church, ad
journed last Sunday night. The ses
sions of the convention were very
pleasant, and everything passed of1
without the least friction. Col. Hoyt
was re-elected President, with Revs.
Rt. It. Griftith and V. 1). Rice as Vice
Presidents, Rev. A. J. S. Thomas and
Mr. A. I. Woodruff Secretaries and
Mr. C. 11. Judson, Treasurer. The at
tendance was not as large as we have
seen, the number of delegates enrolled
being about 175.
The report of the State Mission
Board was read, and showed that the
work accomplished by the Board the
past year was the largest it las ever
done. About $1,800 will be needed by
December 31st to pay all bills and leave
the work square with the world. It is
hoped that this amount will be pat
into the treasury by the churches dur
ing the remaining days of the year.
The report of the Board of Minis.
tertal Education was read by Dr.
Mundy, and the financial report was
read by G. A. Norwood. There ate at
Farman University forty-four young
men studying for the ministry. There
will be needed for the work thin ses
The report of the Committee on
Ministers' Relief Fund was read by
C. C. Brown. Tender speeches were
made by A. C. Wilkins and .J. G. Wil
liams. and a collection was taken 'or
The Convention Sermon was preached
Thursday night by Bro. J. W. 'erry,
paitor of the Hartsville church. It
was an excellent sermon.
The Convention was addressed by Dr.
Froqt upon the Sunday school work ot
the Southern Baptist Convention. The
object for which the Board was created
is the improvement of the Sunday
scho.l condition of the South. There
are about 8,000 Baptist Southern
churches that have Sunday schools,
and about 12,000 are without. The
Board do-s not ask for contributions.
It 1nly seeks the prayers of God's peo
ple. PDr. -rost made a very happy in
pres9ion on the Convention.
After the devotional exercises and
reading of the Journal on Friday, the
regular order of Foreign Missions was
called and the report was read by Mr.
L. C. Ezell. This report was an ex
tended and very admirablo paper. Dr.
T. 11. Pritchard then addressed the
Convention upon the subject. Ile
sketehed I he origin of the Modern Mis
sionary enterprise, giving the Mora
vians idue credit for the noble and ex
traordinary part taken by them. le
showed by very striking figures how
the blessing of God has rested upon the
missions ot Maptists. The money ex
pended by Baptists is from six to seven
timei as productive in spiritual results
as that ex pended by live other leading
denominations of Christians. The Con
vention was next addressed by Rev. T.
P. Bll, of the Foreign Mission Board.
ie reported the work progressing fine
ly in nearly all the maission fields and
said the great demand for men is being
met. The men are coming to the front.

individuals who willl underta'ke each
I the support of a missionary for five

missionaries. Four are wanted now.
The report on the Orphanage was
readi by Rtev. Mr. Vass, who made a
brief and business-like statement of
the status of the work at the present
time, and as to what is expected of the
Baptists of the State. The Immediate
need is the payment of' pledges, that
the building may not be retarded by
lack of money. lie wished to know
whether the denomination would stand
by him if he took thb children on an
empty treasury when the first building
is completed. By a rising vote the
b)rethren (declared that they would
standi by him. A collection was taken
up amounting to $38, which was some
what increased privately. This collec
tion he said was to buy the first pro
visions for the children. IResolutions
were passed confirming what the Or.
phanage Committee had (lone, arid ten
dering thanks to Mr. Vass for the large
gratuitous work he has (lone as chair
man of that com mittee and to the Swif t
Creek church for the magnanimity with
which they maintained him and spared
him from the pastorate while he was
doing the work.
The attendance at the Convention
Friday night wvas augmented by about
one hundred young ladies from Con
verse College. It was a pleasant thing
for the accomplished president of the
college thus to greet the Convention.
A resolution was oifered by R1ev. Mr.
Sanders commending the Sunday
School Hoard of the Southern Baptist
Convention to the support of the dhe
nommnation in the State; andl Rev'. C. C.
Brown proposed an amendment also
tendelring the thanks of the Conventioni
to thme American Baptist Publication
Society for donation of Bibles, andl
wishing God-speed upon thme Society in
all deplartmentsl of its work.
The sub)ject of State Missions came
up by special order at 8o'clock. T1hesub
ject wvas dliscussed by several speakers.
R1ev. J1. N. Booth, or Edgelield, spoke
of the need for strong mneni in destitute
places. Hie also brought out the fact
that while the foreign missionary at
tracts the eye of the world, the State
missiJnary in deCstituite fields is not
mutch hieard of. T1oo little is given by
tihe 80,000 Baptists of the Slate for
State imissions. The average pro rata
is very low. The reason is that so
many give nothing. The pastors muist
inform their churches about the work,
andl the monthly concert of' prayer
ought to be observed. Dr. Bniley closedi
the exercises by calling attention very
earnestly to the fact that between
81,700 and $1,800 would be needed by
D)eo: 31st to close our year without
debt. By a rising vote the pastors and
representatives of the churches pledged
themselves to bring this matter before
their churches and ask for a contribu
tion to meet this need.
Th'ie Convention will -meet next year

caie up. Rev. E. C. Dargan made a
very eloquent tpeech upon the "Carey
Epoch of Missions." Rev. T. P. Bell
clearly explained the "Plans and Pur
poses" of the Centennial. The purpose
of the extra centennial fund which it is
proposed to raise is to build chapels
wherever. necessery, to supply Bibles
and other Christian literature to Bap
tist missions, and to furnish a backing
to the credit of the Board in case of
financial stress. The plan o f
proce,luro is to carry on a cam
pai-n of missionary education.
The literature for supplying the neces
,'ry in formation is in Richmond, ready
to be sent out upon aplication. The
revival of concert of prayer is to be en
couraged. It is hoped that 5th Sunday
(lay meetings will become Missionary
Centeunial Meetings. There will be a
great movement among the women and
children of the land. This campaign of
eduition is preparatory to larger giv
ing. One hundred churches and in
dividt.als are expected to send out each
