CRISIS OF TJE SOUL.
DR. TALMAGE ON THE IMPORTANCE
OF OPPORTUNE ACTION.
Isaiah's Vivid Presentation of the l'er
sonality of Christ-A Present Saviour.
Quench Not the Spirit-The Bible is
New Every lour to the Truly Converted.
LONDON, July 24.-The attendances
at the services conducted by Rev. Dr.
Talmage continue as great as ever. At
every stopping point during his lreach.
Ing tour he is greeted by phenomenal
audiences. The sermon selected for
this week is entitled "The Soul's
Crisis," from Isaiah lv, 6, "Seek ye the
Lord while he may be found."
Isaiah stands Lead and shoulders
above the other Old Testament authors
in vivid descriptiveness of Christ. Other
prophets give an outline of our Sayiour'E
teatres. Some of them present, as i1
were; the side face of Christ; others t
bust of Christ. But Isaiah gives us tht
lull length portrait of Christ. Othei
Scripture writers excel in some thingi
-Ezekiel more weird, David more pa
thetic, Solomon more epigrammatic
Habakkuk more sublime-but when yoi
want to see Christ coming out fron thi
gates of prophecy in all his grandeu
and glory you involuntarily turn to Isa
iah. So that if the prophecies in regar<
to Christ might be called the "Oratorii
of the Messiah" the writing of Isaial;
the "Halleluiah Chorus," where all th
batons wave and all the trumpets coni
in. Isaiah was not a man picked up on
of insignificance by inspiration. Ili
was known and honored. Josephusam
Philo and Sirach extolled him in thei
writings. What Paul was among Li
apostles Isaiah was among the )ro)lhets
I come today with no hairspun theo

other words, the Gospel of Christ is :
powerful medicine; it either kills oi

would like to become a Christian. I
have been waiting a good while for th(
right kind of influence to come." Ani
atill you are waiting. You are wiier
in worldly things than you are in religi
ous things. And yet there are men wi1,

We may pay our debts, we may attenl

may be public benefactors, and yet ali
our life disobey the text, never seer
God, never gain hleavenl. Oh, that thu
idea of God would help this morning
while I try to show you In carrying oul
the idea of my text first, how to seek~
the Lord, and in the next place, wheni
to seek him. "Seek ye the Lord while
he may be found1."
I remark, in the first, place, you are
to seek the Lord through earnest and
believing prayer. God Is not, aii auto.
crat, or a despot seated onl a throne wit,h
his arms resting on brazen lions and ai
sentinel p)acing up and down at the foot
of the throne. God Is a father seatedi in
a bower, waiting for his children to come
and climb on his knee and get his kiss
and his benediction. Prayer is the cuir
with which we go to the "fountaIn of
living water" andI dip up) retreshmient
for our thirsty soul. Grace (ices not

water to catch tihe rain in tihe shower.

God which we pull, bringing the bless
I (10 not care so munch what posture
you take in prayer, nor how large an
amount, of voice you use. You miight,
get, (dowa on your faice before G;od, if you
did not pray right inwardly, and there
would be no resp)onse. You mlig.hItcr
at tine top of your voice, and unless ycu
had a believing spirit within, your cry
would not, go farther up than tile shout
of a plowboy to his oxen. Prayer must
b)e believing, earnest, loving. You are
in your house sonme summer day, andl a
shower comes np, and1( a b)ird aflrighted
(darts into thle window and wheels arond
the room. You seize it. You smioothi
its ruflied plumage. Y ou feel its fliLt
tering heart.. You say, ''Poor thing,
poor thing!" Now a prayer goes out
of thle storm of this world int.o the wvin
dow of God's mercy, and lhe catchles it,
and he feels its fluttering punlse, and lie
puts it in his own boson' of aflfectioii and1
Prayer is a w.arim, a.dent, lsa5iting
exercise. It is the electrle battery
which touched thrills to the thir,ne of
God! It Is tile diving bell in which we
go down into the depths of God's mercy
and bring up "pearls of great p)rice."
Thlere is an instance where prayer made
the waves of' Gennesaret solid as grain
ite pavement. Oh, ho0w many won:ler
ful things prayer has accomplished!
H.aye you ever tried it? In thle daSys
when the Scotch Covenanters were per
secuted and the eniemies were after them
one of the head men among tihe Coven
anters p rayed: "0 Lord, we be as dead
men unless thou shalt help us. 0 Lord,
throw the lap of thy cloak over tneseo
poor thmogs."' And instantly a Scotch
mist enveloped and hid the persecutedl
lromn their persecutors-the promise it,
erally fulfilled, "While they are yet,
speakIng I will hear."
0 impenitent soul, have you ever
tried the power of prayer? G ad says,
"lie la loving and faithtul and patient."
Do you believe that? You are told that
Christ came to save sinners. Do you
believe thatt You are told that all you
have to do to get the pardon of the Gos
pel1 is to ask for It. Do you believe that?
Then come to him sod say: "0 Lord,
I know thou canst not lie. Thou hast
told me to come for pardon and I could
get at. I come, Lord. Keep thy prom
ise and liberate my captive soul."
Ob, that you mIght have an altar In
*.,* the plor, In the ktchen, In the store,
In hebarn! for Christ will be willing to
g,onte again to the manger to hear pray

business as he confronted Matthew, the t

would ru;n the nation, how you would

And yet there has been enought sin in *

against it. if your physical health

Tlhere is a time which mercy has set

chairman of the Carnegie Company,
was shot and stabbed at 1:45 o'clock
this afternoon by Alexander Berkian,
aged 21, a Russian Jew, who says he
lives on Forty-second street, New York.
At 5-30 o'clock Secretary Lovejoy gave
a statement to the Associated Press
describing the wounds. Two shots en
tered the neck about the base of the
skull on either side. One passed out
between his shonider and the others was
removed froin the opposite side of the
neck. The third shot missed its aim.
There is no evidence that the stab
wounds are deep or that they will prove
dangerous. Tiey are on tbe, right one
at tne.lower border of the ribs, the other
just below the hi p bone. There is no evi
denco that any of these wounds will
prove serious. Frick's condition at
present is perfectly satisfactory.
The young man who opperates the
elevator says that the would-be assasin
has been in and about, the buil.ling I or

taken the main ip in the elevator.
Each time he asked to see Mr. Boswortlh

fe w minutes before 2 o'clock this after
noon a dark compIlex ioned youing man,I
with a .Jewish cast ot countenance, ol
mled itim height and luly well dressed,
enitered thle elevator in thie buildogti;
whliichi is occupieid by tho Carnegie Steel:
Cornyi:miy, Luinited, ..ndl asketd to be let,
oif at, Frick's oflice
Th'le young iman had been a fre-queiit
visitor during the past few days, and
D)avid Fortneuy, the elevator boy,
thought nothing of his reLiluest, but,
stoppletI at the second lhor anid poinited
ouit the way to the ehuairma'i's privat.e
room. Tw~ o minut,es later the occu
pants of the building anid thle passers
by on Fith Avenue were startled by
three pistol slkots lired ini raid suicces
sioni. Intuitively thie vict,imi was di
vined, arid "Frick is shot" wetre the
words soonj passimg froiin moutch to
mouth oin the street. It was true. A
man believed to be a crank had assauilt
ed the gre'at st,eel m.st.er, butt the hat,
ter, niotw ithstanning two buillet wounds
arid four ugly gash's from a dagger,
stilt livyes and will probably recover.
The otlice of Leis.im in, a business
part ner of Frick, ad iouns that, of thie<
chiai rmani. L eishmeta had ci .me in, anid
thei two were holding a private con ier
ence, no one else beinrg ini thle room. A

hastily p)tih open the swvinugiiig gate in
the iailing that. runs betweeni tie pttb
lieI port ion andl thei eielo)surei where ii he
desk of thie stenogr'pher4 and clerks
are located. Thimee as no one near
the private olli ae door, anid (lie boy I
hiurrieti up to ask the~ intruder what lie
wanted, bitt lie wa: too lat e, as the I
st ranger hiad alread.y tetreult(lhe pri
v'ate apart,inent. As lie enitered( the of
lice, Prick looked up, as did also Leishi
itian, to see who it s as.
Firick was exti.tinijg a liun dle oh
paper is. TIhie in an praiig wvithuin atboumt
live feet of F"riek, and quickly drawing
his revolver, puillted thu trigger. 'Thre
iirst, cartridge dlid iiot exp)lode; thie
stecond( shiot entered tne back of Frick's I
neck, and glancing downt ward, passed
to the outside below the armpit. Frick
inade an exclamatiot', and jumped to
the circuilar window on Filth avenue,
andl tried ini vain to open it. Ills as
sailant passed nearly in front of hIs
diesk, and approaching close to Frick
lredl again. The ball enteredl the ~
muscles on the left side of the neck and
passed arotund to a lodgmnent under the
right ear, where It was later reached
by a probe.
At this instant Leishiman threw him
self on the would-be assassin and
wrestled for the possession of the re- I
volver. Leishman clutched the barrel
andl turned the muz-zle upward as a
cartridge exple'ded, the ball entering the I
plastering near a glass partition. With
agilit.y the dlesperatex iian drew a dag
ger and attempt,ed to stab1 Leishmnan, I
who was hioldin g his assailanit by the
shoulder and bod y. Prick saw agleam
of steel, and although staggered by the
shock of his wounds and bleeding pro
fusely he jumped between the men and
seized the mati's arm. T1he latter freed
hiniself from L4eishimani's grasp andl
pluniged his dagger into F"rick's right
side just above the hip, making an ugly ~
wound three Inches long, lie made t1
another lunge, this time the knmfe"
striking higher up, bat the point struck
a rib and glanced (nown withoumt in.
ilicting much injury. T wice again was
t,he knife thrust at I"rick, but he wvas
merely scrat ched by these lastautempets ~
to kill him. The struxggle was in hill
view of those on the street.a
By this time the olhice boy andI Depu
ty Sheriff May, who enteredl the olice 'y
as the first shot was fired, threw them- 8
selves on the assassin. May had drawn a
his revolver and was about to shoot the I
elit w in the back when Frick cried
mt: "Don't kill him. We have got
ilm all right. Leave Iiti te the I tw."
L'he man broke away and triEd to es
ap, bit was s-ciired and taken t, the
,vi ral Poli4 Station. 'The prompt
lct: >n of Frick saved the lives of Leish
ilai and his self-appointed execitioner.

lown on tihe lounge, and after his
lothing had buen removed the wounds
were washed and the bleeding stopped.
During all this time the wounded man
was calm, and had perfect command of
his faculties, and apparently was less
excited than any other person in the
room. From tilne to time he made
suggestions as to how badly he was
hurt., and half an hour after the shoot

he was greatly distressed, but bore
herself bravely when told that there
was no apparent danger. She sent her
ister, Miss Childs, to the oflice with in
itruct.ions to return at once and inforim

In the meantime rick was removed

This was rathter an unusual occurance
