THE HOMEWARD MARCH
Bermon by Rev. T. DoWitt Tal-

now David's Soldier Recovered Their
Loved Ones From the Amnle-kltes The
Great March ot the Earthly Host
to the Heavenly Homo.
Tho subjoct of Dr. Talniago's recont snr-

text I. Samuel, xxx., 8: "Pursue for thou
Bhalt surely overtake thorn, and wlthnul
fall recover all." The eloquent divlno spoke
There is Intense excitement in the village
of Ziklag. David and his mon are bidding
good-bye to their families, and aro off for
tho wars. In that llttlo village of Ziklag the
aoionsaloes ones will bo saro until tho war
riors, flushed with victory, coma homo. But
wui tliu deionsolo-is ones be safe!
Tho soft arms of children are around the
necks of tho bronzed ' warrlora until thoy
shake tliomsolves loose and start, and hand
kerchiefs and tlairs are waved, and klases
thrown until tho armed men vanish boyond
the bills. David and hh men soon get
through with their campulgn, and start
oomoward. fcvery night on tholr way
homo, no soonor does the soldier Dtit his
hood on tho knapsack than in his dream ho
heurs tho woloouie of tho wife and the shout
of the child. O, what lonfr stories thoy will
have to tell to their families, of how they
dodged the battlo-uxe! and then will roil
up their sleeve and show the half
hoaled wound. With glad, quick step
thoy march on, Duvld and his
men, for they are marching home. Now
they come up to tho lust hill which over
looks Ziklag, and they expect In a moment
to see the dwelling places f their loved
ones. Thoy look, and ai they look their
checks turn pale, and tholr lips quiver, and
their hundi Involuntarily come down on the
hilt of the sword. "Where is Ziklag? Where
are our homos!" they cry. Alast the curling
smouo auovo ine ruin tells tho tragedy.
The Amalckitos have coma down and con
sumed tho village and currioJ tho mother
and the wives and the children of David and
his men into captivity. Tho swarthy war
riors stand for a few minutes trunshxod
with horror. Then their oyes glance to
eocnotnorand they burst into uncontroll
able weeping; for when a strong warrior
weeps the grief Is appalling. It seams a If
the emotion might tear him to ploces. Thoy
"wept until they bod no more power to
wcop." nut goon tholr sorrow turns Into
rugo and Duvld, swinging his sword high
Into the air, cries: ' Pursue, fur thou Shalt
overtake thorn, and without full rceoror
all." Now tho march bocomoi a ' double
quick." Two hundred of David's mon stop
uy mo DrooK tiuor, mint with fatigue unci
grief. They can not go a step further. Thny
are left there; but tho other four hundred
men undor Duvid, with a sort of panther
step, march on in sorrow and In rage. Thoy
And by tho side, of tho rond a half dead

Very soon Duvld and his enraged company
come upon mo Amalekillsh hunt Yon-Jet-
they sec tholr own wive, and children, and
mnlhors, and undor Amulukitish guard.
Here aro the oftlcers of tho Amulo
kitlsh army holding a banoqet. Tho
cups are full, tho music it roused,
the daneo begins. The Amalekitlsb
host cheer, and cheer, and choor ovor tholr
victory. But, without nolo of buclo or warn
ingot trumpet. Duvid and his four hundred
men burst upon the scene, suddonly as Rob-
en liruco h lined h Is Scotchmen upon the rev-
clors at Kan nock burn. David and his men
look up, and one glance at tholr loved onos
in uaiivity and undor Amalckltlsh guard
throws thorn iuto a very fury of determina
tion, tor you know how men will fight wbou
thoy fight for tlHir wives and children. Ah,
thore aro lightnings In their eyes, and every
anger Is a hmi and their voice is like tho
shout of the whirlwind. A midst tho upset

blood mingling with their wine) shriekkig
Tor mercy. No sooner do David and his men
win the victory than thoy throw tholr
swords down Into the dust what do they
wuntwilh swords now I and tho broken
families como together auihMa gnat shout
ol Joy that makes the parting tcono in Zik
lag seem very insipid In Hie comparison.
The rough old warrior has to oso some Dor
suasion before he can get his child to come
to him now after so long an absence; but
soon the little finger traces the familiar
wrinkle across the scarred face. And then
the empty tankards are set up, and thoy are
fliled with the best wine from tho hills, and
David and bis men, the husbands, the wives
the brothors, the sisters, drink to the over
throw of the Amaloklles and to the rebuild
ing of Ziklag. So, O, Lord, let thlna ene
mies perish I
Now they are coming home, David and
his men and their families a long proces
sion. Mon, women and children, ioadod
with owcli and robes, and with all kinds of
trophies that the Amulekltes bad gathered
up in years of conquest everything now In
the hands of David and his moo. When
they come by the brook Bcsor, the place
wbore stayed the men sick and Incompetent
to travol. the jewels and tho robes and all
kinds of treasures are divided among the
sick as well as among the well. Buraly the
lame and exhausted ought to have some of
the troasures. Here Is a robe for this pale
faced warrior. Here la a pillow for this
dying man. Here Is a handful of gold for
the wasted trumpeter. I really thiol that
these mon who fainted by tho brook liosor
may bavo endured as much as those mon
who went into batllo. Borne mean follows
objoctcd to tho sick onos having any of the
spoils. The objectors said: '-Those mon
did not fight" David, with a magnanimous
heart, repllos: "As his part Is that gooth
down to the baltlo, so shall his part be that
ton-let h by the stuff."
This subject is practically suggestive to
me. Thank Uod, In tho.se timos a man can
go off on a Journey, and be gone weeks and
months, and come back and seo his house
untouched ot Incendiary, and have his fami
ly on the step to greet him. If by telegraph

But there are Amulekltlsh disasters and
there are Amalekillsh diseases that
sometimes come down upon one's home,
making as devastating work as the day
when Ziklag took fire. Thore are famlllea

In Ulster County, N. Y., tho villago church
was decorated until the fragrance of the
flowers was almost bewlldoi iug. The mBld
ens of the village had emptied the place of
flowoi-supon one marriage altar. One of
their own number was affianced to a minis
ter of Christ, who had como to tuke hor to
to hie home. With hands Joined, amidst a
congratulatory audienco, tho vows were
taken. In throo days from that time one of
those who stood at the altar exchanged
earth for Heaven. Tho wedding march
broke down Into the funeral dlrga. Thoro
wore not enou ;h flowers now for tho coffin
lid, becnuso thny bad all boen takon for the
bridal hour. The dead ministor of Christ
is brought to anothor vlllaje. He had gone
out from thorn loss than a wenit before In
his strength: now he comes homo lifeless.
Tho whole church bewailed him. Tho
solomn procession moved around to look up
on tho still face that ones had beamed with
mossagosof salvation. Little children wore
liltoj up to loo at him. And somoof those
whom he bod comforted in days of sorrow,
whon they passed tha' sllont form, made
the place dreadful with their we.iplng. An

and that David and bis men had to go over
theame difficult way. While, those cap

we are so tired; we are so sick; we are so

them said: "Stop this crying. Uo on."
David and his mon also found It a hard way.
Thoy had to travel it Our friends bave
gone Into glory, and It la through much
tribulation that we are to enter Into the
kingdom. How our loved ones used to have
to struggle. How their old hearts ached!
How sometimes they had a tussle for bread!

reavementand an unbroken home circle! O.
yes I It was trouble that whitened thol- hair.
It was trouble that shook the cup In
their bands. It was trouble that washed
the luster from tholr eyes with tho rain of
tears until thoy oeedod speotaclos. It was
trouble that made the cane a necessity for
their journey. Do you never remember
seeing your old mother sitting, on some
rainy day, looking out of the window, her
elbow on the wlndowsllU hor hand to hor
brow looking out not seeing the falling
shower at all (you well knew she waa look
ing into the distant past), until the apron
came up to her eyos, because the memory
was too much for hor!
"Oft the 6lg, unbidden tear,
Stealing down the furrowed cheek,
Told In eloqnenoe sincere,
Tales of woe they could not speak.
"Dut this soene ot weeping o'er,
Past this soene of toll and pain,
They teall feel distress no more.
Never, never weep again."
"Who are these under the altar!" the
quostlon was asked; aud the response came:
"l nese are tbey which came uo ont of groat
tribulation and have washed tholr robes
and made thorn white In the bood of the
Lamb." Our friends went by a path of
tears into-giory. Be not surprlsodlt we
have to travel the same pathway.
I remark, again, If we want to win the
society of our friends In Heaven, we will
not only have to travol a path of faith and
path of tribulation, but we will also have
to positively battle for tholr companion
ship. David and his mon never wasted
sharp swords and Invulnerable shields and
thick breasiplutea so much as they wanted
mem on tho . day ' when they came
down upon the Amalekitos. If they
had lost that battle they nover would
have got their families back. I sup
pose that one glance at tholr loved ones in
captivity hurled them Into the battle with
tenfold oourugo und energy. 1 Tbey said;
"Wo must win It Every thing depends
upon It Let each one take a man on point of
spear or sword. We must win it" Aud I
have to tell you that between us and oom.
ing into tho companionship of our loved
ones who are departed there is an Austor
lltz, there is a Gettysburg, there is a Water
lood. War with the world, war with tho
flesh, war with the dovll. We havo either
to conquer our troubles, or our troubles
will couquor us. David will either sluy the
Amalekitt-s, or the Amulekltes will sluy
David. And yet Is not the fort to be
takon worth all the pain, all the ertl, all
the bestegumentl Look: who ait they on
tbo bright hills of Hoaveu yon
der! Thoro they are, those who
sat at your own table, tlieehulrnow vacaut
There thoy aro, tlioae whom you rockod lu In
fancy lu the cradle or bushed to sleep lu your
arms. There they are, thoso In whoso life
your lifo was bound up. There thoy are,
tholr brow more radiant than ovor before
you saw It, their lips waiting for tho kiss of
hoavenly gio.tlug, their cheek roseate with
the health of etoruid summer, thefe- hands
beckoning vou np the steep, their feci bound
ing with the mirth of heaven. Tho pu.f s of
their lust sickness goue out of their face,
never more tu pJ sick, nevermore to coujh,
nover more to limp, nover more to be old,
nevormore to weep. They aro watching
from those heights to sue if through Christ
you can take thut fort, and whether you will
runh in upon thum victors. Thoy know
thut upon this battle depends whether you
will ever joiu tholr society. Dpi strike
harder I Charge more bravely ! Itcmcmbor
thut every inch you gain puis you so much
further on towards that heavenly reunion.
If this morn.ng, while I speak, you could
boar the cannona lo of a foreign navy, com
ing through the 'Narrows," which wus to
doapoll our city, aud if they really should
succeed In currying our families uway from
us, bow long would we toko before we re
solved to go aftor them! Every weapon,
whether fresh from Bpringtlold or old and
rusty in the garret, would be brought out;
aud we would urge on, und, coming lu front
of the foe, we would look at them, und then
look at our families, and tbo cry would bo:
"Victory or dculb 1" aud when the ammuni
tion wus gone, wo would luae the captors
on the point of tbo bayonet or under the
brooch of the gun. If you wou.d make such
a struggle for the getting back of your
earthly fi-ionds, will you not mako as much
struggle for the gaining of tho eternal com
panionship of your Iloavculy friends! O,
yes! we must join them. We must sit In

bruised. He says: "I can't got any more
music out of this Instrument: so I will just
break It and I will throw this rood away.

Besor dries up. and thore is no brook at all.
And In your last moment you will be as
placid aa the Kentucky minister, who went
up to Uod, saying. In the dying bour:
"Write to my sister Kate and toll hor not to
be worried aud frightened about the story

a poor, miserable sinner: but I bave an Al
