DK. TALMAGE'S SERMON.
THE CHRISTIAN ON TRIAL THE
THEME OF HIS DISCOURSE.
Tho World, Conscience, an Angel and
the Holy Ghost Bear "Witness Against
Him, but Christ Pleads His Case and
He is Saved.
Brooklyn, Doc. 19.?The^Rev. T. De Witt
Talniage, D. D., preached to-day in the
Brooklyn Tabernacle on the subject: "On
Trial," taking Jor his text I John i, 2: uWe
have an advocate with the Father, Jesus
Christ the righteous," he said:
Standing in a court room you say to your
' self: "At this bar crime has often been ar
raigned; at this witness stand the oath has
often been taken; at this jurors' bench tho
verdict has been rendered, at this judge's
desk sentence has been pronounced." But I
have to tell you to-day of a trial higher than
any oyeraml terminer, or circuit, or supreme,
or chancery. It is the trial of every Chris
tian man for tho life of his soul This trial is
different from any other in the fact that it is
both civil and criminal. The issues at stake
ere tremendous, and I shall in my sermon
show you, first, what are the grounds of
complaint; then who are tho witnesses in the
cause, and lastly, who are the advocates.
When a trial is called on, the first thing is
to have tha indictment read. Stand up, then,
O Christian man, and hear the indictment of
tho court of high heaven against thy soul!
It is an indictment of ten counts, for thou
hast directly or indirectly broken all tho ten
commandments. You know how* it thun
dered on Sinai, and when God came down
how the mountain rocked, and tho s-noke as
cended as from a smoldering furnace, and
the darkness gathered thick, and the loud,
deep trumpet uttered tho words: "The soul
that sinneth, it shall die!" Are you guilty or
not guilty ? Do not put in a negative plea too
quick, for I have to anuounce that "all have
sinned and come short of the glory of God.
There is none that doeth good; no, not one.
Whosoever shall keep the whole law yet
offend in one point, ho is guilty of nil." Do
not, therefore, be too hasty in pronouncing
yourself not guilty.
This lawsuit before us also charges you |
with the breaking of a solemn contract
Many a time did we promise to be the Lord's.
We got down ou our knees and said: "0
Lord, I am Thino now and forever." Did I
you keop the promise? Have you stood up to
the conti act? I go back to your first com
munion. You remember it as well as if it
were yesterday. You know how tho vision
of the cross rose before yon. You remember
how from the head, and the hands, and the
side, and tho fe;-t, there came bloed?ig forth
these two words: "Remember me!" You
recall how the cup of communion trembled
in your hand when you first took it; and as
in a sea shell you may hear, or think you
bear, the roaring of the surf even after the
shell has been taken from the beach, so you
lifted tho cup of communion, and you heard
in it tho surging of the great ocean of a
Saviour's agony; and you came forth
from that communion service with
face shining as though you had been
on the Mount of Transfiguration; and the
very air seemed tremulous with tho lov? of
Jesus, and the woods, and the leaves, and the
grass, and the birds wero brighter and
sweeter voiced than ever beforo, and you said
down in tho very depths of your soul: "Lord,
Thou knowest all things; Thou knowest that
I lovo thee." Have you kept tho bargain, 0
Christian man? Have you not sometimes
faltered when yon ought to have been true?
Have you not been proud when 3-ou ought to
havo been humble? Havo you not played
tho coward when you ought to havo been the
hero? I charge it upon you and I charge it
upon myself?we have broken the contract.
Still further, this lawsuit claims damages
at your hands. The greatest slander on the
Christian religion is an inconsistent pro
fessor. Tho Bible says re'igion is one thing;
wo by our inconsistency say religion is some
other thing, and what is more deplorable about
it is, that pjoplu can see faults in others while
they cannot see any in themselves. If you
shall at any time find some miserable old
gossip, with imperfections from the crown of
her head to tho sole of her foot, a perfect
blotch of sin herself, she will go tattling,
tattling, tattling all tho years of her life,
about the inconsistencies of others, having no
idea that she is inconsistent herself. God
save the world from the gossip, female and
male! I think the males aro the worst Now
the chariot of Christ's salvation goes on
through the world, but it is our inconsisten
cies, my brethren, that block up the wheels,
while all along the line thero ought to have
been cast nothing but palm branches, and
the shout should havo been lifted, "Hosanna
to tho son of David."
Now you have heard the indictment read.
Aro you ready to plead guilty or not guilty?
Perhaps you are not read}' yet to plead. Then
the trial will go on. The witnesses wilMje
called, and we shall have tho matter decided.
In tho name of God I now make proclama
tion: 'Oyez! oyez! oyez! Whosoever hath
anything to offer in this trial, in which God
is the plaintiff and tho Christian soul tho de
fendant, let him now step forth and give tes
timony in ihis solemn trial."
The first witness that I call upon the stand
in behalf of the prosecution is the World?all
critical and observant of Christian character.
You know that there are people around you
who perpetually banquet on the frailties of
God's children. You may know, if you have
lived in tho country, that a crow cares for
nothing so much as carrion. There aro thoso
who imagino that out of tho faults of Chris
tians they can make a bridge of boats
across the stream of death, and they
aro going to try it; but, alas,
for the mistake! When they get amid
stream away will go the bridge ami down will
go their soul to perdition. 0, World of the
greedy eye and tho hard heart, come on tho
stand now and testify In behalf of the prose
cution against this Christian soul on trial.
What do you know about this Christian man?
BOh,wsays the World, "I know a great deal
about him. Ho talks about putting his
treasures in Heaven, but ho is the sharpest
man ill a trade I ever knew. He seems to
want us to bclicvo that he is a child of God,
but he is just lull of imperfections, I do not
know but 1 am a great deal tetter than he is
now. Oftentimes ho is very earthly, and he
talks so little about Christ and sj much about
himself, I am very glad to testify that this is
a bad man."
Stop, 0 World wirh the greedy eye and the
Lard heart. I fear you are too much in
terested in this trial to give impartial evi
dence. Let all those who hear the testimony
of this witness know that there is an old
family quarrel between these two parties.
There ulwnys has been a variance between
the World and the Church, and while tho
world on tho witness stand to-day has told a
great deal of truth about this Christian man,
you must take it all with some allowance,
remembering that they still keep the old
grudge good. 0 World of the greedy eye and
the hard heart, that will do. You may sit
The second witness I call in this case is
Conscience. Who art thou, Oh Conscience?
What is your business? Where wero you
born? What aro you doing here? "Oh!"saya
Conscience, "I was born in heaven. I came
down to befriend this man. I havo lived
with him. I have instructed him. I havo
warned him. I showed him the right and
the wrong, advising him to tako the one and
eschew the other. I have kindled a great
light in his soul. With a whip of scorpions 1
havo scourged his wickedness and 1
have tried to cheer him when doing right;
and yet I am compelled to testify on tho
stand to-day that he has sometimes rejected
my mission. Oh. how many cups of lifo
have I pressed to his- lips that ho dashed
down, and how often has he stood with his
hard heel on the bleeding heart of tho Son of
God! It pains mo very much that I have to
testify against this Christian man, and yet I
must, in behalf of Him who will in no wise
clear the guilty, sa}' that this Christian man
has done wrong. lie has been worldly. Ho
has been neglectful Ho has done a thousand
things ho ought not to havo done, and left
undone a thousand things ho ought to havo
done." That will do, Conscience. You can
Tho third witness I call in the case, is an
Angel of God. Bright and shining one, what
doest thou here? What hast thou to say
against this man on trial? "Oh!" says tho
angel, "I havo been a messenger to him. I
have guarded him. I havo watched him.
With this wing I havo defended him, and
oftentimes when ho knew it not I led him
into the green pastures and beside tho still
waters. I snatched from him tho poisoned
chalices. When bad spirits came upon him
to destroy him I fought them back with
iufiuito fierceness; and yet I havo to
testify to-day that ho ha3 rejected my mis
sion. He has not done as ho ought to have
done. Though I came from the sky ho drovo
mo back. Though with this wing I defended
him, and though with this voice I wcoed
him, I havo to announce his multiplied im
perfections. I daro not keop back the testi
mony, for then I should not dare to appear
again amongst tho sinless ones before tho
There is only one more witness to be called
on behalf of the prosecution, and that is tho
great, tho holy, tho august, tho omnipotent
Spirit of God. We bow down beforo Him.
Holy Spirit, knowest thou this-^nan I "Oh,
yes," says tho holy one, "i know him. I havo
striven with him ten thousand times, and
though sometimes he did seem to repent, ho
fell back again as often from his first estate.
Ten thousand times ten thousand has he
grieved Me, although the Bible warned him
saying: 'Grieve not the Holy Ghost. Quench
not the spirit.' Yes, he has driven Mo back.
Though I am tho third person of the Trinity
he has trampled on my mission, and the blood
of tho atoucmcnt that I brought with which
to oleanso his soul, ho somotimes despised. I
came from the throno of God to convert, and
comfort, and sanctify, and yet look at that
man, and see what he is compared with what,
unresisted, 1 would have made him."
The evidence on the part of tiio prosecution
has closed. Now let tho defense bring on tho
rebuttal testimony. What havo you, 0
Christian soul, to bring in reply to this evi
dence of tho World, of tho Conscience, of the
Angel and of the Holy Ghost? No ovidenco?
Are all these things true? "Yes, unclean, un
clean," says every Christian soul. What?
Do you not begin to tromblo at tho thought
We have como now to the most interesting
part of this great trial The evidence all in,
the advocates speak. Tho profession of an
advocate is full of responsibility. In England
and tho United States there linvo arisen men
who in this calling havo been honored by
their race and thrown contempt upon thosD
who in the profession havo been guilty of a
great many meannesses. That profession
will Ire honorable as long as it has
attached to it such names as Mansfield, and
Marshall, and Story, and Kent, mid South
ard and William Wirt. Tho court room has
sometimes been tho scene of very marvelous
and thrilling things. Somo of you remembor
tho famous Girard will case, where one of
our advocates pleaded the cau:ie of tho Bible
and Christianity in masterly Anglo-Saxon,
every paragraph a thunderbolt.
Somo of you havo read of tho famous trial
in Westminster hall of Warren Hastings, the
despoiler of India That groat man had con
quered India by splendid talents, by courage,
by bribes, by gigantic dishonesty. Tho whole
world had rung with applause or condemna
tion. Gathered in Westminster hall was one
of the most famous audiences ever gathered.
Foreign ministers and princes sat there.
Peers marched in clad in ermine and gold.
Mighty men and women from all lands
looked down upon the scone. Amid all that
pomp and splendor, and amid an excitement
such as has seldom been seen in any
court room, Edmund Burko advanced,
in a speech which will last as long as
tho English language, concluding with this
burning charge, which made Warren Hast
ings cringo and cower: "I impeach him in
tho name of tho Commons house of parlia
ment, whoso trust ho has betrayed. I im
peach him in the namo of tho English nation,
whose anciont honor he bos sullied. I im
peace him in the namo of tho people of India,
whoso rights ho has trampled on, and whoso
country he has turned into a desert. And,
lastly, in tho name of human nature, in tho
namo of both sexes, in tho namo of every age
and rank, I impeach him as tho common ene
my and oppressor of ali."
But I turn from the rec-itai of these mom
orablo occasions to a grander trial, and I
l havo to teil you that in this trial of tho
'? Christian for the life of his r.oul tho ndvo
1 cates are mightier, wiser and more eloquent.
I The evidence all being in, Justice rises
! on behalf of tho prosecution to make his
! plea. With tho Bible open in his hand he
reads! ho law, stern and inflexible, and the
; penalty: "The real that sinnoth it shall die."
' Then he says: "O thou, judge and lawgiver,
? this i> thit'o own statute, and all the cvi
: dence in earth and heaven agrees in stating
I that this man has sinned against ail these en
I net men ts. Now let the sword leap from it3
scabbard. Shall a man go through tho very
J flames of Sinai unsinged? Let tho law bo
I executed. Let judgment be pronounced.
. Let him die. 1 demand that he die."
I O Christian, does it not look very dark for
j thee? Who will plead on thy sido in so for
lorn a caase.' Sometimes a man will bo
\ brought into a court of law, and ho will have
' no friends and no money, and the jadgo will
; look over the bar and say: "Is there any one
I who will volunteer to tako this man's caso
I and defend him?" and some youne: man rises
; up and says: "I will bo his counsel," perhaps
j starting on from that very point to a great
' and brilliant career. Now, in this mntter of
i the soul, as you havo nothing to pay for
I counsel, do you think that any one will vol
I unteer? Yes, yes; 1 see one rising. He is a
. young man, only I? years of ngo. I seo His
' countenance suf""used with t^ars and covered
j with blood, and all the galleries of heaven
! are thrilled with tho spectacle. Thanks bo
I unto God! -We havo an advocate with tho
j Father, Jesus Christ the righteous."
I 0, Christian soul, your caso begins to look
I better. I think, perhaps, after all you may
I not havo to die. Tho best advocate in all tho
i universo has taken your side. No one was
j ever so qualified to defend a man as this ad
vocate is qualified to defend you. lie knows
all the law, all its demands, all its penalties.
Ho is always ready. No new turn of tho
case can surprise Him, and Ho will plead for
you for nothing as earnestly as though you
brought a world of treasures to His feet. Be
sides that he has undertaken the caro of
thousands who tvero as forlorn as you, and
He has never lost a case. Courage, 0 Chris
tian soul! I think that after all there may bo
some chance for you, for the great advocate
rises to make his plea. He says: "I admit
all that has been proved against my client. I
admit all these sins, aye, more; but look at
that wounded hand of mino, and look at that
other wounded hand, and at my right
foot and at my left foot. But all
I these wounds I plead for his clear
: ance. Count all tho drops of my
I tenrs. Count all the drops of my blood. By
! tho humiliation of Bethlehem, by the sweat
! of Gethsemane, by the .sufferings of tho cross,
I demand that he go free. On this arm ho
hath leaned; to this heart be bath flown; in
my tears ho hath washed; on my righteous
ness he hath depended. Let him go freo;
I am tho ransom. Let him escape the lash; I
took the scourgings. Let tho cup pc--. from
him; I drank it to tho dregs. Put on him tho
crown of life, for I have worn tho crown of
thorns. Over against my cross of shame set
his throno of triumph."
Well, tho counsel on both sides have spoken,
and there is only one more thing now remain
ing, and that is tho awarding of the judg
ment. If you havo over been in a court room
you know the silence, and tho solemnity,
when the verdict is about to bo rendered or
tho judgment about to bo given. About this
soul on trial, shall it be saved or shall it be
lost? Attention.' above, around, beneath.
All tho universe cries, "Hear! Hear!" -
Tho judge rises mid gives this decision,
never to bo changed, never to be revoked.
"There is, ihureforo, now no condemnation to
then who are in Christ Jesus."
"Tho soul that oc Jesus h.ith leaned for reposo,
I will not, I will not, desert to His foc3;
That soul, though fill hill should endeavorjto'
I'll Dover, no never, no never forsake."
But, my friends, thero is coming a day of
trial in which not only tho saint, but "the
sinner must appear. That day of trial will
come very suddenly. Tho farmer will bo at
tho plow, the merchant will be in tho counting
room, tho woodman will bo ringing hisJX
on tho hickories, tho weaver will huvem?s
foot on tho treadle, tho manufacturer w?Qe
walking amid tho buzz of looms and the clack
of flying machinery, the counsel may be stand
ing at tho imr pleading the law, tho minister
may be in the pulpit pleading tho gospeLthe
drunkurd may be reeling amid his cups, and
the blasphemer with tho oath caught between
Lol Tho sun hides. Night conies down at
mid-noon. A wavo of darkness rolls over the
earth. Tho stare appear at noonday. The
earth shudders and throbs. Thero an earth
quake opens and a city sinks as a crocodile
would crunch a child. Mountains roll in
their sockets and send down their granite
cliffs in an avalanche of rock. Rivers pause
in their chaso for tho sea, and ocean, uprear
ing, cries to flying Alps and Himalayas.
Boasts bellow and moan, and snuff up
tho darkness. Clouds fly like flocks c?f
swift eagles. R^oat thunders beat and boom
and burst. Stars shoot and fall. Tho:Al
mighty, rising on his throne, declares that
time shall bo no longer, and tho archangel's
tramp ropeats it till all tho living hear, and
tho continents of dead spring to their feet,
crying: "Time shall bo no longer 1" Oh, on
that day, will you bo ready?
I havo shown you how woll tho Christain
will get off in his trial. Will you get off as
well in your trial? Will Christ plead on your
I sido or will ho plead against you? Oh, what
will you do in tho last great assizu, if your
conscionco is against you, and the world is
aguinst you, and tho angels of heaven are
against you, and tho Holv Spirit is ogfeShfc
you, and tho Lord God Almighty is against
you? Better this day secure an advocate.
A Warm Placo to Sleop.
Perhaps you never stopped to think that in
a city liko Chicago livo a good many people
of various sorts who are able to enjoy no
greater comfort, no moro delicious luxury,
than a warm placo to sleep. Thinking the
matter over you will doubtless perceive that
anything liko happiness or contentment
without a snug, warm placo to sleep o' nights
is impossible Givon fino raiment, rich food,
good li9alth, wealth ane" all of the pleasures,
delicacies and luxuries which money can buy
or youth and vigor can enjoy?all would bo a
mockery without a warm placo to sleep. Tho
prisoner iu solitary confinement, the con
demned man in his cell, the pauper in a
I charity bed, tho hopeless invalid on a couch
that is nover to be left save in death, is
I favored by fortuno compared with him who
I possesses no warm retreat at night, who has
I almost forgotten what it is to sleep without
an accompanying nightmare mode up of
; cramps, chills and icy specters. If any living
mortal deserves tho pity and charity of his
fellows it is the one whom night makes home
less, who has door after door shut in his face,
who is cast out from tho habitations of man
to shift for himself liko a wild ? beast. All
this is what a policeman meant to say when
ho thus chatted at the west end of Madison
"What aro those chaps doing thero on the
sidowalk noxt tho flour mill? Gittiif warm.
Sonio of em's tramps who haint got no monoy,
' somo's newsboys and bootblacks who'd rather
: sper.d their money goin' to tho theaytres than
! for lodgin's, and some's fellers in tough luck
No matter who they bo an' what brought 'cm
' here, I haint got tho heart to drive 'cm away. '
] You see, there's big steam boilers right under
tho sidewalk there, and those grates nro reg'lar |
hot air registers. Go stand over thero an' seo |
i how warm it is. Some of 'em sleeps thero all
night, an' mighty glad of tho chance, too.
Them cold nights we had 'cm piled up there
I two or three deep. When it's real cold a man
can't warm but one sido o' hissclf at a timo j

New Method of Speech K"cor(linjj.
I A promising method of recording and re
| producing speech is that of M. Leoa Esquille.
? It consists in first speaking to a diaphragm
having a highly polished surface, from which
a ray of light is reflected. Tho record of this
speech is obtained by simply photographing
the ray of light upon a traveling band of
sensitized paper. After having been devel
oped, the articulation may bo reproduced by
projecting tho imago of the trace by means
of an electric arc or calcium light upon a
selenium receiver, tho well known apparatus
for transforming light impulses into sound
1 vibrations, and tho speech is then heard
through the telephone connected. This
method is moro troublesome than Edison's
phonograph or Bell's graphaphone, but seems
lively to give better results.?Arkansaw Trav
A Valuable rind.
Two men. strangers to each other, sat sido
by side in a west bound Wobasb train. Ono
of them slept, and when ho awoke found that
his seat mato had gone, taking his bag, but
leaving one in it3 place. Tho conductor was
consulted and it was decided to open the re
I maining valiso to identify its owner. It was
ojK'iied and disclosed, as its only contents, an
ax with a pieco of broken handle in it and
a package containing ?1,200 in money. No
namo or address could bo found to lead to tho
ownership, and tho finder is holding it until
it can be claimed and he gets his own valise
j in exchange.?New York Sun. . . ?J..
