The subject of Dr. fulmaRo' edrmon at
the Brooklyn Tabernacle was ; "The Hhorn
Locks of Kurason." He took for his text
JudKcs zvl. 5: "Entice him, and see where
in his great strength lteth, and by what
means we may prevail against nlm, that wo
may bind him to afflict him; and we will
give thee every one of us eleven hundred
pieces of silver." The sermon was as fol
One thorn.', .d pounds, or about live thou

for the capture of a giant. It would take a
skillful photographist to picture Samson as
he- really was. The most facial words aro
not supple enough to describe him. He was
fe giant and a chlld Uio conqueror and the
defeated.; able to snap the lion's )aw and
yet captured by the tight of amaldetK He
wastiler BYid slave; a oomminglfhg Of vir
tue and Vice, the sublime and tiie ridicu
lous; sharp enough to make a Vtood riddle,
and yet weak enough to be taught In the
most superficial atratagom; honost enough
"to settle his debt, and yet outrageously rob
bing somebody else to get the material to
pay it; a mlraclo end a scoffing; a crown
ing glory and a burning shame. There be
stands, looming up above othor men, a
mountain of tfcsh; his arms bunched with
muscle Uttan lift the gate of a city; tak
lng an altitude defiant of armed men and
wild be U. His hair had never been cut,
tnd It rolled down in several groat plaits
over his shoulders, adding to his fierceness
and terror. The Philistines want to conqaer
him, and therefore they musttlndout where
the secret of his strength lies.
Thoro Is a woman living In the valley of
Borek by the name of Delilah. They appoint
her the agent In the case, The Philistines
are secroted in the tame building, and then
Delilah goes to work and coaxes Samson to
tell what la the secret of hit strength,
"Well," he says, "If you should take seven
groen withes, such as they fasten wild beasts
with, and put them around mo, I should be
perfectly powerless." So the binds him
with the seven green withes. Then she
claps her banda and says: "They come
the Philistines!" and he walks on t as though
there was no impediment. She coaxes him
again, and says: "Now toll me the secret
of this great strength ;" and ho replies : "If
you should take some ropes that have never
been nsod, and tie me with them, I should
be Just like other men." She ties him with
the ropes, claps her hands, and shouts:
"They mane the Philistines I" He walks
oat as easy as he did before rot a single
obstruction. Bhe coaxes him again, and he
'aays: "Now, if you should take those seven
long plaits of hair, and by this house loom
weave them into a web I could not get
way." o the house loom Is rolled op, and
the shuttle files backward and forward, and
the longplalta Of hair are woven Into a web.
'Then she claps her bands and says: "They
oomel the Philistines." l
He walks out a easily as be did before,
dragging a part of the loom with him. But
.after a while she persuades him to tell the
truth. He says: 4,lf you should takearazor,
or shears, and cut off this long hair, I should
!be powerless, and in the hands of my ene
mies." Samson sleeps, and, that ahe mar
not wake him up during the process of
shearing, help Is called in. - You know that
the barbers of the East have such a skillful
wayof 'manipulating the head, to this very
'day UioywUl put a man, wide awake, sound
-asleep. . I hear the blades of the shears
grinding against each other, and I see the
long1 looks foiling off. The shears, or razor
:aooomplitheswhat green withes, and new,
ropes, and Bouse loom could not do. Hud
denly sheolaps her hands and says: "The
JPhlllstines ' be upon thee, Samson 1" .He
rouses ep"wlth a struggle, but his strength
'is all gone I He la in the hands of bis ene
mies I 1 hear the groan of the giant as they
'take his eyes out, and then I see him stag.

as be goes on toward Gaza. The prison door
Is opened, and the giant Is thrust in. He site
down and puts his hands on the mill crank,
which, with exhausting horizontal motion,
i goes day after day, week after week, month
i after month work, work, work The con
sternatlon of the world In captivity, his
locks shorn, his eyes punctured, grinding
con In Gate. In a previous sermon on this
i character I learned some lessons, but an
tther class of lessons are before us now.'
Learn first bow very strong people are
i sometimes coaxed Into great Imbecilities.
' Sampson bad no right to reveal the secret of
bis strength. Delilah's first attempt to find
out is a failure. . He aaysi "Green withes
will bind me," but It waa a fallurei Then
he says: "A new rope will hold me," but
that also waa a failure. Then be aays
"Weave my locks into a web and that will
bind me," ret that also wss a failure. But
at last you see bow she coaxed It out of him.

Two young men passing down tbe afreet

Persuasion baa conquered. Hamsan fields
to the coaxing and there Is a oaralvatt In hell
that Blrht among the Philistines end they
shout, I'Hal i hat, We've .got himl Those
who have the (rie.l'Jtt and most tympathetio

and susceptibility of your nature will en-
courage the siren. Though strong as a giant,
look out for Dolllah's scissors. Samson, tho
strongest man who ever lived, was over
come by coaxing.
Again, this narrative teaches us the powor
of an ill-disposed woman. In the portrait i
gallery of Bible queens we find Abigail and
itutn and Miriam and vashtl and Doborah,
but In the rogues' gallery of a police sta
tion you find tho pictures of women as well
as men. Dolllah's picture bolongs to the
rogues' gallery, but she had more power
than all Phllistla armed with sword and
spear. She could carry off the Iron gates
of Samson's resolution as easily as he shoul
dered the gates of Gaza. Tho force that
had killed the lion which oils day plunged
out tierce from tbe thicket utterly succumbs
to tho silken net which Delilah weaves for
the giant Ho who bad drl'en an army In
riotous retreat with the bleached jaw bone,
smiting them hip and thigh with great
slaughter now fulls captive at the feet of

How doplorable the Influence of such in

lng from bereye, a gentleness that by pangs
and sufferings and boly anxlotlos bos been
mollowlng and softening tor many a yoar,
uttering Itself In every syllable, a dignity
that can not be dethroned, united with the
playfulness that will not be chocked, her
band the charm that will instantly take pain
out of the child's worst wound, her presence
a perpetual benediction, her name our de
fense when we are tempted, her memory an
outrunning well of tears and congratulation
and thanksgiving, her heaven a palm wav
ing and a coronal ; then there is Just as great
an influence In the opposite direction tn tbe
bad mother, her brow .beclouded wltn un
govornei passions, her eye flashing with
unsanctltled fire, her lips the fountain of
fretfulnoss and depravity, her cxnmplo a
mildew and a blasting, hor name a disgrace
to coming generations, hor memory a signal
for blttorest anathema, her eternity
whirlwind and a suffocation and a darkness.
One wrong-headed, wrong-hearted mother
may ruin one child, and Uiat one cniia,
grown up, may destroy a 'hundred people,
and the hundred blast a thousand, and the
thousand a million. The wife's' sphere Is
realm of honor and power almost unlimited.
What a blessing was Sarah to Abraham,
was Deborah to Lapldoth, was Zlpporah to
Moses, was Huldah to Shallum.
There are multitudes of men In the marts
f trade whose fortunes have been The re
sult of a wife'a frugality. Four hands have
been achieving that estate, two at the store,
two at the home Tbe burdens of life are
comparatively light when there are other
bands to help us Tift them. The greatest
difficulties have often slunk away because
there were tonr eyes to look them out of

meets yen at the door, sits beside yon at
the table, lights up the evening stand, and

aged couple who for scores of years have
helped each other In life's pilgrimage going
down the sleep df years. Long association
has made themmuch alike They rejoioed
at the same advent, they bent over the
same cradle, they wept at the same grave
In tbe evening they alt thinking of the past
mother knitting at the stand, father in his
arm chair at the fire.
Now and then a grandchild comes and they
look at him with affection untold and come
well nigh spoiling bim with kindnesses. The
life current beat feebly in their pulses and
tbelr work will soon be done and the Master
will call. A few short days may separate
them, but not fsrapart In tlmeof departure,
they join each other on the other aide the
Hood. Side by side let Jacob and Rachel be
burled. Let one willow overarch their
graves. Let their tombstones stand alike
marked wlth'the same scripture. Children
and grandchildren will come In the spring
time to bring 'flowers. The patriarchs of
the town will come and drop a tear over de
parted worth. Side by side at the marriage
altar. Side by side in the long Journey.
Side by side tn tbelr graves. After life's
fitful fever they slept well.
But there are, as my subject suggest, do
mestic scene not so tranquil. What a curse
to Job and Potiphar were their companions,
to Ahab watJezebel, to Jehoram waa Atha
Ilab, to John Wesley was Mrs. Wesley, to
Samson waa Delilah. While the most ex
cellent end triumphant exhibitlona of char
acter we find among the womea of history,
and the world thrills with the names of
Maria Antoinette and Josephine, and Joan
of Aro, and Maria Theresa, and hundreds of
others who have ruled in tbe brlghest homes
and sung tbe icweetest cantos, and en
chanted the nations with their art, and
swayed the mightiest of scepters, en the
other band, the names of Msry the First of
England, Margaret of France, Julia of
Rome, and Elizabeth Petrowna of Russia,
have scorched the eyes of history with their
abominations, and their names, like ban
ished spirit, hare gone shrieking and curs
ing through the world. Ia female biography
we find the two extremes of excellence and
crime. , Woman stands nearest the gate of
Heaven or nearest the door of hell. When
adoraed Ly grace ahe reaches point of
Christian elevation whloh man can not at
tain, and when Masted of crime she ainka
deeper than man can plunge. Yet 1 am
glad that the inatanoes in which woman

But aays aome cynlual spirit, what do you

Solomon says i "Behold, this have I found,

that it .Solomon had behaved himself with
common decency and kept out of Infamous
cirdles he would not have had so much diffi

a tirade Ever since my childhood I have
heard speakers admiring DIogenea, the eya

he did that for, tatdr -"I am looking Jor an

He could wrestle -with giants in opposing

But he began to tamper wun Dnuiant tree

born one whose fame will last as long as

He stood, the admired of millions; the na

spoke Senates sat breathless under the
spell.' Tho plotters against good govern
ment attempted to bind him with green
withes and weave his locks in a web, yet he
walked forth from the enthrallment, not
knowing he had burst a bond. But from
the wine cup there arose a dos troy lng spirit
that came forth to capture his soul. He
drank until his eyes grew dim and his knees
knocked together and his strength failed.
Exhausted with lifelong dissipations, he
went borne to die. Ministers pronounced
eloquent euloglums, and poet sung, and
painters sketched, and sculptors chiseled the
majestlo form into marble, and the world
wept, but everywhere it was known that It
