"iS LIFE WORTH UViNG?"
Rey. Dr. Talraage Discusses the
Supreme Ethical Question.
IT DEPENDS ON THE LIFE
The Kloqnont Trencher Is Greeted
After His Vacation by nn Immense
CongreifuMmi A Keen Satire on
the Compotsltion of "Society"
As was expected, an Immense congrega
tion greeted Rev. Dr. T. De WittTalmago,
who appeared in the pulpit of the First
Presbyterian Church yesterday morning
for tlie first time since the close of his
vacation. The crowd was like that which
assembled in the church when Dr. Tal
mago preached his first sermon there
after belngcolled as co-pastor. There was
liesldes a great overflow.
The preacher's subject and text were as
Subject: Is Life Worth Living? Text:
Lamentations 111:39 "Wherefore doth a
living man complain?"
Dr. Talmage. opening the discourse, said
"With cheeriest salutation I greet you
after the summer absence, and after a ride
of thousands or miles through richest
harvest tit-Ida, and at a time when the
agricultural and metallic forces have united
to assure under God the grandest pros
perity tlfat this country has ever seen.
It is easy at such a time to take a cheer
ful view of. life, but we ought always to
be in the. thankful and appreciative n.ood
suggested by my text. This morning I
propose to discuss a ijues-tion which all
ask, and which all at some time try to
auvwer: "Is life worth living?
"Solomon, in his unhappy moments, says
it In not- 'Vanity,' 'vexation of spirit,'
'no good,' are his estimate Jeremiah, Iu
a book supposed to be doleful, and lugu
brious, and sepulchral, and entitled "La
mentations, plainly intimates that the
blessing -;r n orely living U so great and
grand a blessing, that though a man have
piled on him all misfortunes uud disasters
he has no right to complain, uud cries out
to all centuries, 'Wherefore doth a living
"A diversity of opinion has existed on
this subject in our time as well as in
"How are We to decide this matter
righteously and intelligently? You will
find the s;une man vacillating, oscillating
iu his opinion from dejection to exuber
ance, and if he be very mercurial in his
temperamentj it will depend very much
upon which way the wiud blows. If
the wind blow from the northwest nnd
vou c?k him, he will say 'Yes,' and If It
blow from the northeast and you ask him,
he will say Wo.' How are we then to
get the question righteously answered?
Suppose we call all nations together in
great convention on Eastern or Western
hemisphere, and let all those who are
in the negative say 'Xo.' While there
would be hundreds ot thousands who
would answer in the affirmative, there
would be more millions who would answer
In the negative, und because of the
greater number who have sorrow aud
misfortune nnd trouble, the 'noes' would
have It. The answer 1 shall give will be
different from either, and yet it will com
mend itself to all who hear me this day
as the right answer. If you ask me 'Is
life worth living?' 1 answer, it all de
pends upon the kind of life you live
"In the first place. 1 remark, that a
life of mere money getting is always a
failure, because you will never get as
much at. you want. The disease of ac
cumulation has eaten into the financial
behemoths -eaten Into their heart, into
their lungs, Into their spleen, into their
liver, Into their bones.
"If some Christian chemist would an
alyze one of these he would find he is
made up of topper, and gold, and silver,
and yinc, and lead, and coal, and iron.
That is not a life worth living. There
arc too mnny earthquakes in it, too many
agonies iu it, too mnny perditions in it.
"It is estimated that only about two
out of a hundred business men have any
thing worthy the name of success. A
man who spends his life with the one
dominant idea of financial accumulation
spends a life not worth living."
Speaking of political ambition, Dr. Tal
"In summer time the nominations are
made Tne reservoirs of abuse, und dia
tribe, and malediction gradually fill up.
gallon above gallon, hogshead above hogs
head, until these raservolrs are brimming
full, and e hose Is attached to each one,
and it is played on these nominees, and
they have to stand it and take the abuse,
and tlie ""alaehood, and the caricature, and
the auathemu, and the caterwauling, and
the filth, and they are rolled in it and
rolled over and over in it, until they are
choked, and Mibinerged. ami strangulated,
jnd at every sign of returning conscious
nes they are barked at by all the hounds
of political parties from ocean to ocean?
"But what you see in the matter of high
political preferment you see in every com
munity In the struggle for what is called
social position, in which good morals and
intelligence arc necessary, but wealth, or
the show of wealth, is absolutely Indis
pensable. There are men today as notori
ous fur their libertinism as the night Is
famous for its darkness who move In
what is called high social position. There
are many out-and-out rakes in American
society whose names are mentioned among
the distinguished guests at the great
levees. They have annexed all the known
vlceb. and are longing for other worlds of
diabolism ti conquer. Good morals are
not necessary in many of the exalted cir
cles of Miciety.
"Neither is intelllgencce necessary. You
find in that realm men who would not
know an adverb from an adjective If they
met it a hundred times a day, and who
could not write a letter of acceptance or
regrets without the aid of a secretary.
'There are thousands today in 'society'
who are anxous to keep in it. There are
thousands in this realm who are nervous
for fear they will fall out of it, and there
are changes golngon every year,and every
month, aurt" every hour which Involve heart
breaks that are never reported.
'A life of tin, a life of ptide, a life of
Indulgence, a life of worldliness, a life
devoted to the world, the flesh, aud the
devil is a failure, a dead failure, an infinite
failure. I care not how many presents you
bend to that cradle, or how many garlands
you send to that grave, you need to put
nght under the" name on the tombstone this
insciiption: 'Better for that man if he
had never been born.
' 'But I sl-all show ypu a life that is vorth
living. A young man says: 'I am here. I
am not responsible for my ancestry, others
decided that. I am not responsible for my
temperament; God gave me that. But here
I am, in the evening of thu nineteenth cen
tury, at twenty years of age. I am here,
and I must take an account of stock. Here

family idles a Ijook with leathern cover
almost worn out, nnd pages aki.ost oblit

books in saying I am immortal. I under

biiffrted, he is tried, he Is perplexed.
A giave opens on this side and a grave
opeus on that side. He falls, but he
rises again. He gets into a hard battle,
but he gcLs the victory- The main course
ot Ms II re is in the right direction. He

makt-s everlasting record of his holy en

to him: 'Well done, good and faithful

whether that man die3 at thirty, forty,
fifty, sixty, seventy, or eighty years of
age, you can chisel right under his name
on the tombstone these words: 'His life
was worth living.' "
Dr. Talroage drew one ot his graphic
pictures of a happy home and the bless
ing In the end of the sainted mother.
The close of the sermon was as follows:
"I would not find It hard to persuade
you that the poor lad, Peter Cooper, mak

DIl. KEKR ON INFIDELITY.
HiH I'eu.sons for llellevlnp: That
There Is n God.
"Infidelity Is on the retreat,'' said the
Rev Dr Kerr, of Richmond, Va., who oc
cupied the pulpit yesterday at the morning
service nt the Church, of the Covenant
"There was a time," he said, "when the
lnfidc' proclaimed 'there Is no God,' but
now his next of kin, the agnostic, says
you 'Can't prove there is a God.' "
Dr. Kerr took lor hisHubJect,"The Fool's
Beher," based on th? text from the firty
thlrd Psa'm, first verse: "The fool hath
said in his heart there Is no God."
"It Is the wise man," he suid, "who can
say what Is and point them out as evi
dences ol a living universal God, but it
is the fool who will dare say what Is
not. The wise man admits andis confeciuua
ot cause and effect, but the fool, even
when tne effect or result of cause Is shown
him will deny It, and not believe.
"No num." the Reverend speaker said,,
'ciJi look out into the world or up Into
the heavens, unless he is a fool, and deny
that tl.c-re is a God; a power, a hand that
regulates and moves all.
"But of all God's creations, man Is the
most wonderful. His mechanism is per
fect; asleep and awake, it goes on Just
the same. He is God's watch. He wound
It up at birth, and has set a time for
It to stop. Cicero said, aud truly, that
no nation Is so barbarous as to deny
the existence ot God, and Senaca said
the man who does lies to himself and
"If there were no God, there Would
be no virtue, no honesty, and sin would
not be sin. Without God, there would
bf no government either in a -country, a
city, or in the family."
SEHMOX BY REV. DIl. DICKEY.
Pastor of Wnnumalcer's Church
Preached Yesterdnj- in This City.
He-. Charle.-' A. Dickey, D. D., pastor of
Wanauialcer's church, of Philadelphia, fill
ed the pulpit at the New York Avenue
Prpobyterian Church yesterday morning.
Dr. Dickey read as his text a portion ol'
the eleventh and twelfth verses of the
fourth cuapter of Philippians 'i have
learned that iu whatsoever state I am
to be content therewith" and spoke in
part as follows:
"When the translators take the risk of
supplying words they generally cover up
come ot the best things In the original
work. I say let tho work speak for itself.
In the words that I have just quoted
the word "therewith" has been supplied
by the translator's pencil. We have better
senne without the inserted word. Paul
meant that he was content 'In and not
with' his suite.
"Paul said that he was notouly generally
satisfied with his state, but specifically
btates that he was content whether his
condition was one of aboundment or one
of abasement. It Is not the easiest thing
in the world to be content in aboundment.
Some men never lose their heads until
they abound. Some never show signs of
weakness until thoy get up. It takes a
gieat deal of grace to go suddenly Into a
state of aboundment.
"Rut it is a harder task to be content
"V. hen we have to be under the feet of
the world, bearing Teproaches and the
lash. It is much easier to bear being
dowu It you were never up. Poverty
is a small burden if it is a life inherit
ance, in comparison with poverty brought
on to those who have known plenty or
luxury. Paul says that he knew both
how to abound and how to suffer. In
either case it is a matter to be deter
mined by unselfishness.
"We shall never have known what life
is until we shall have learned how to
live for the good of others. To abound
ar.d be selfish is an awful combination
The poorest beggar on the otreet can
sing a soug of which the most ;elfish
man ot means cannot reach the first note.
'The selfish rich go down into their
giaveH weeping over an imagined poverty.
We must say tiiat we will rejoice whatever
oui suffering, else we will never have true
power, character aud happiness.
'False sentiment and empty eloquence
will never build up a church. For my part
I long to see the revolution that will
break up every little group of con
tested sentimental Chiistiaus that will not
put talents and gifts together for the re
demption of mankind.
'Ve must throw our lives' fragments
Into whatever crucial fire God may select
fyr them. We may work glory, honor and
immortality out of abasement, out of sor
row swooping down onuslike the swiftness
of a mountain flood.

to a largo audience or representative peo

said that he took pleasure lu bringing be
foio those present "a conservative, able

to picsunt Mi. James Paxton Voorhoes, a

eternal punishment, and was received with

Many old friends oMr. Voorhees' father

followed- Two monologues, Aux Italienes
and Ave Maria, followed. Ave Maria
is a singular and weird poem, delineating
a peculiar phase of rdlglo.is charity, and
in Imagery aud thought possesses a power
that was felt by those present. Aux
Italienes, Owen Meredith's beautiful love
story, wus brilliantly rendered by the
monologulEt as an instance of human
love. It is understood that this last
selection was the favorite of Mr. Voor
