DR, TALMAGE'S SUNDAY SERMON.
What May Be Seen When the Scales
Fall From Our Eyes.
TEXr: "And the Lord opened the eyes of
the young man."-IL Kings vi,17.
One morning in Dothan a young theologi.
cal student was scared by fding himself and
Elisha, the prophet, upon whom he waited,
surroundedby a whole army of enemies. But
venerable Elisha was not scared at all, be
cause he saw the mountains full of defense
for him, in chariots made out of fire, wheels
of fire, dashboard of fire and cushions of fire,
drawn by horses with nostrils of fire, and
manes of fire, and haunchesof fire, and hoofs
of fire-a supernatural appearance that could
not be seen with the natural eye. So the old
minister prayed that the young minister
might see them also, and the prayer was an
swered, and the Lord opened the eyes of the
young man and he also saw the fiery proces
sion, looking somewhat, I suppose, like the
Adirondacks or the Aleghames in this au
Many young men, standing among the
most tremendous realities, have their eyes
half shut or entirely closed. May God grant
that my sermon may open wide your eyes to
your safety, your opportunity and your des
A mighty defense for a young man is a
good home. Some of my hearers look back
with tender satisfaction to their early home.
It may have been rude and rustic, hidden
among the hills, and architect or upholsterer
naver planned or adorned it. But all the
fresco on princely walls never looked so en
ticing to you as those rough hewn rafters.
You can think of no park or arbor of trees
planted on fashionable country seat so at
tractive as the plain brook that ran in front
of the old farmhouses and sang under
the weeing willows. No barred gateway,
ado with statue of bronze, and swung
open by obsequious porter in full dress, has
half the glory of the swing gate. Many of
you have a second dwelling place, your
adopted home, that also is sacred forever.
There you built the first family altar. There
Your children were born. All those trees you
planted. That room is solemn, blecause once
m it, over the hot pillow, flapped the wing
of death. Under that roof you expect when
your work is done to lie down and die. You
try with many words to tell the excellency
of the plee, but you fail. There is only one
word in the language that can describe your
maning It is home.
NowI declare that a young man is com
paratively safe who goes out into the world
with a charm like this upon him. The mem
ory of parental solicitude, watching, plan
ningandpraying, will be to him a shield and
a shelter. I never knew a man faithful both
to his early and adopted home, who at the
same time was given over to any gross form
of dissipation or wickedness. He who seeks
his enjoyment chiefly from outside associa
tion, rather than from the more quiet and
impresuming pleasures of which I have
R3692, may besuspectei to be on the broad
reed to ruin. Absalom despised his father's
house, and you know his history of sin and
his death of shame. If you seem unneces
sarily isolated from your kindredand former
*aciates, is there not some room that you
can call your own? Into it gather books and
pictures and a harp. Have a portrait over
the mantel. Make ungodly mirth stand back
from the threshold. Consecrate some spot
with the of prayer. By the memory of
other daya father's counsel and a mother's
-love, and a sister's confidence, call it home.
Another defense for a young man is indus
trious habit. Many young men, in starting
upon life in this age, expect to make their:
way through the. world by the use of their
wits rather than the toil of their hands. A
child now goes to the city and fails twice be
fore he is as old as his father was when he
first saw the spires of the great town. Sit
tinin some office rented at $1,000 a year,
hen waiting for the bank to declare its divi
dend, or goes into the market exnecting be
fore night tube made rich by the i-ushing up
of the stocks. But luck seemed so dull here
solved on some other tack. Perhaps he bor
rows from his employer's money drawer,
and forgets to put it back. or for merely the
purpose of ;mproving his Penmanship makes
a Dopplate of amerchant ssignature. Never
inall is right in trade. In some dark
'ih there may come in his dreams a vision
of Backwell's Island, or of Sing Sing, but
it soon vanishes. In ashort time he will
be ready to retire from the bus world,
and amid his flocks and herds cuture the
domestic virtues. Then those young men
who once were his schoolmnates, and knew no
better than to engage in honest work, will
come with their ox teams to draw him logs'
and with their hard ands~ help heave up his
castle. This is no fancy picture. Itis every
day life. I should not wonder if there were
some rotten beams in that beautiful palace.
I should not wonder if dire sicknesses should
smite through the .young man, or if God
should pour into ins cup of life a draught'
that would thrill him with unbearable agony.
Ishould not wonder if his children should
become to him a living curse, making his
home a pest and a disgrace. I should not
wonder if he goes to a miserable grave, and;
beyond itinto the gnahing of teeth. The
y thre i togenu
ine secess except through toil eithr of the
head or hand. At the battle of Crecy in
14 tbe Prince of Wales, finding himself
heavily pressed by the enemy, sent word to
his father for help. The father, watching
the battle from a windmill and seeing that
his son was not wounded and could gain the
day ifhe would, sent word: "-No: Iwill not
come. Let the boy win his spurs, for, if
Ged will, 1 desire that this dar be his with
all its honors." Young m-m, finht your own
battle all through and you shall have the
victory. Oh, it is a battle worth fighting.
Two monarchs of old fought a duel, Charles
V. and Francis, and the stakes were king
doms-Milan and Burgundy. You figh wi
sin and the stakes are heaven andhel
Do not get the fatal idea that you are a
genius, and that therefore there is no need
of close application. It is here where multi
tudes fail. The great curse of this age is the
gemiuses, men with enormous self conceit and
egotism, and nothing else. I had rather be
amox than an eagle; plain, and plodding,and
useful, rather than high flying and godfor
nothing but to pick out the eyesof carcasses.
Extraordinary capacity without use is extra
ordinary' failure. There is no ho~ for that
who begins his life resolve to live by
hswits, for the probabilit is he has not
any. it was not safe for A even in his
unfallen state, to have nothing to do,
and, therefore, God cm nddhim
to be a farmer and horticulturist.
He was to dress the -garden and
keep it, and had he and his wife obeyed the
divmne injunction and been at work, they
would not have been sauntering under theI
tesadhungem after that fruit which
destoyedthem ther poteriy ;proof
postie for all ages to come that thowe who
donot attend to their business are sure to get
into mischief. I do not know that the prod
igal ini Scripture would ever have been re
caimedh not given up his idle habits
and gone to feeding swine for a living. " Go
to the ant, thou sluggard; consider her ways
and fie wise, which, having no overseer ox
guid, poviethher food in the summer and
Cteehher meat in the harvest." The
vidoes not so often attack the man who
is busy with the pen, and the book, and the
trowel, and the saw, and the hammer. He
is afraid of thoqe weapons. But woe to that
mnatuwhom this roaring~ lion meets with his
hands in his pockets. Do not demand
that your toll always be elegant, and
cleanly and refined. There is a certain
amount of drudgery through whichi we must
all pass, whatever be our occupation.
Again, profound respect for the Sabbath
will be to the young man a powerfulpreserv
ative agis evil. God has thrust into the
tol n fatigue of life a recreative day, when
the soulis esmeially to be fed. It isno new
fangled notion of a wild brained reformer,
but an institution established at the beg-in
ning. God has made natural and mnorallaws
so harmonious that the body as well as the
soul demands this institution. Our bodies
are seven day clocks, that must be wound un
as often as that, or they will run down.
Failure must come sooner or later to the man
who breaks the Sabbath. Inspiration hasl
called it the Lord's day, and he who devotes
it to the world is guilty of robbery. o
will not let the sin go unpunished, either in
this world or the world to come.
While the divine frown must rest upon
him who tramples upon this statute, Giod's
special favor will be upon that young man
who scrupuously observes it. This day,
urpry osrved, will throw a hallowed in
ueoover all the week. The song and ser
mon and sanctuary will hold back from pre
sumptuous sins. That young man who
begins the duties of life with either secret or
open disrespect of the holy day, I venture to
prophesy, will meet with no permanent suc
cesses. God's curse will fall u n his ship.
his store, his office, his studio, body and
his soul. The wyo the wicked he turneth
upside down. In one of the old fables it was
said that a wonderful child was born in Bag
dad and a magician could hear his footsteps
6,030 miles away. But I can hear in the foot
step of that young man, on his way to the
house of worship this morning, step not only
of a lifetime of usefulness, but the coming
step of eternal joys of heaven yet millions
of miles away.
There are magnificent possibilities before
each of you young men of the stout hears,
and the buoyant step and the bounding
spirit. I would marshal you for grand
achievement. God now provides for you the
fleet and the armor and the fortifications.
Who is on the Lord's side? The captain of the
zouaves in ancient times, to enrourage them
against the immense odds on the side of their
enemies, said: "Come. my men, look these
fellows in the face. They are 6,000, you are
300. Surely the match is even." That
speech gave them the victory. Be not, my
hearer, dismayed at any time b '. , voms
an immense odds against you. Is an -ne, is
want of education. are men, are devils
against you? Though the multitudes of earth
and hell confront you. s:aud up to the
charge. With 1,001.000 against you the
match is just even. Nay, you have a decided
advantage. If G d be for us, who can be
against us? Thus protected, you need not
spend much time in answering your assail
Many years ago word came to me that two
impostors, as temporance lecturers, had been
speaking in Ohio in various places and giv
ing their experience, and they told their
audience that they had long becu intimate
with me and had Lecone drnn':ards by dining
at my table, where I always hal liquors of
all sorts. Indignant to the last degree I
went down to Patrick Campball. chief of
Brooklyn police, saying I was going to start
that night to Ohio to have these vil
lians arrested, and I wanted him to
tell me how to make the arrest. He smiled
and sad: "Do not waste your time by chas
ing these men. Go home and do your work,
and they can do you no harm." "I took his
counsel and all was well. Long ago I made
up my mind that if one will put his trust in
God and be faithful to duty he need not fear
any evil. Have God on your side, young
man, and all t:i combined forces of earth
and hell can do no damage.
And this leads me to say that the mightiest
of all defense for a young man is the posses
sion of thorounh religious principle. Nothing
can take the p.ace of it.. He may have man
ners that would put to shame the graceful
ness and courtesy of a Lord Chesterfield. For
eign la:iguages may drop from his tongue.
He may be able to discuss literatures and
laws and foreign customs. He may wield a
pen of unequaled pchsh and power. $isquick
ness and tact may qualify him for the high
est salary of the counting house. He may be
as sharp as Herod and as strong as Samson,
with as fine locks as those which hung Absa
lom, still he is not safe from contamina
tion. The more elegant his manner, and the
more fascinating his dress, the more peil.
Satan does not care much for the allegiance
of a coward and illiterate being. He cannot
bring him into efficient service. Bat he loves
to storm that castle of character which has
in it the most spoils and treasures. It was
not some crazy craft creeping along the coast
with a valueless cargo that the pirate at-.
tacked, but the ship, full winged and flagged,
plying between great ports, carrying its
million of suecie. The more your natural
and acquired accomplishments. the .more
need of the religion of Jesus. That does not
cut in upon or hack up any smoothness of
disposition or behavior. It gives symmetry
it arrests that in the soul which ought to be
arrested, and propels that which ought
to be propellic It fills up the gullevs. It
elevates and transforms. When the Holy
Spirit -impresses the image of God on the
heart he does not spoil the canvas. If in all
the multitudes of young men upon whom re
ligion has acted you could find one nature
that had been the least damaged, I would
yield this proposition, You may now have
enough strength of character to repel the
various temptations to gross wickedness
which assail you, but I do not know in
what strait you may be thrust at some
future time. Noth:ng short of the grace of
the cross may then be able to deliver you
from the lions. You are not meeker than
Moses, nor holier than David, nor more pa
tient than Job, and you ought not to consider
yourself invulnerable. You may have some
weak point of character that you have never
discovered, and in some hour when you
are assaulted the Philistines will be
upon thee, Samson. Trust not in your
ood habits, or your early training, or
your pride of character; nothing short
f the arm of Almighty God will b3 sufficient
to uphold you. You look forward to the
world sometimes witha chilling despondency.
Cheer up! I will tell you how you all may
make a fortune. "Seek first the kingdom of
God and his righteousness and all other things
will be added unto you." I know you do not
want to be mean in this matter. Give God
the freshness of your life. You will not have
the heart to drink down the brimming cup of
life and then pour the dreg's on God's
atar. To a Saviour so infinitely generous
you have not the heart to act like
that. That is not brave, that is not
honorable, that is not manly. Your geatest
want in all the world isanewheart. InGod's
name I tell you that. And the Blessed Spirit
presses through the solemnities and privi
leges of this holy hour. Fut the cup of life
etenal to your thirsty lips. Thrust it not
back. Mercy offers it, bleeding mercy, long
sffering mercy. Reject all other friend
ships; be ungrateful for all other kindness,
p oerecreant to all other bargains, but
*e~s Gods love for your immortal soul
ant you do that.
I would like to see some of you this hour
press out of the ranks of the world and lay
your c.onquered spirit at the feet of Jesus.
I'his hour is no wandering vagabond stagger
ing over the earth; it is a winged messenger
of the skies whispering mercy to thy soul.
ife is smooth now, but after a while it may
be rough. wild and precipitate. The:-e comes
a crisis in the history of every man. We
eldom understand that turnin;g point until
t is far past. The road of life is forked and
read on two signboards: " This is the way
o happiness," " This is the way to ruin.
EHow apt are we to pass the forks of the road
without thinking whether it comes out at the
oor of bliss or the gates of darkness.
Many years ago I stood on the anniversary
platform with aminister of Christ who made
this remarkable statement:
"Thirty years ago two young men started
ut in the evening to attend the Prk Theatre,
New York, where a p lay was to be acted in
which the cause of religion was to be placed
in a ridiculous and hypocritical light. They
ame to the steps. The consciences of both
sote them. One started to go home, but
returned again to the door, and yet had
ot courage to en: er, and finally de
parted. But the other young man entered
he pit of the theatre. It was the turning
point in the history of those two young men.
lhe man who entered was caught ma the
whirl of temptation. He sank deeper and
:eeper in infamy. He was lost. The other
oung man was saved, and he now stands
fore yon to bless God that for twenty years
e has been permitted to preach the GospeL.
"R~ejoice, 0 young man, in thy vouth, and
et thy heart cheer thee in the days of thy
outh; but know thou that for all these
hings God will bring thee into judgment."
'1'HE great strength acquired by Port
land cement with a solution of calcium
hloride is shown by the fact that even
the runners of cement mills are now
repaired with that mixture, the stones
being put to work wthin an hour of

FROM BERLIN TO ST. PETERSBURG.
Scenes from a Train During a Ride
-iirough Part of Russia.
It is forty hours in the train from
Berlin to St. Petersburg. Until you
have traveled right through it you
hardly recognize the greatness of Prus
sia. From the French frontier to Ber
lin is a shorter distance than from Ber
lin to Eydtkuhnen, on the Russian
frontier, and the whole road runs
through well-tilled fields or carefully
fenced meadows, in which shapely cat
tle graze, and past red-roofed farm
houses with roomy stock yards, testi
fying strongly to the orderly, economi
cal North German spirit.
The Russian railway gauge is differ
ent from the German, so while chang
ing trains at Edytkuhnen one has to
wait two hours; however, the part
ridges are delicious, and they are pro
videl at every Russian railway res
taurant. On first crossing the frontier
yon see but little difference, for you
pass through Russia's German prov
inces. The provinces were in the thir
teenth and fourteenth centuries con
quered from the pagan Slavs by the
Teutonic Enights (a religions order of
similar constitution to the Enights
Templars), and by them colonized by
German merchants; and the country,
growing wealthy and prosperous, prom
ised to become a regular part of the
German Empire. It had been consti
tuted an imperial fief, But as the
towns waxed fat they kicked and threw
off the rule of the Teutonic Knights;
with division came weakness; and so
the Baltic provinces fell back first to
Slavonic Poland and then to Sweden,
and after the fall of the Swedish hege
mony they became Russian, and have
remained so ever since. Until quite
lately they were allowed a large
amount of self-rule, and German was
used as the official language; but it is
so no longer. Yet the provinces still
show their origin, for all the great
landlords and all the business men are
of German blood, and the language of
business is German, although the peas
ants are Slavs.
As you get further on into Russia
the long boots of the country people
show that you have come into the land
of mud and bad roads. All along the
line you see that monotonous beauty of
every northern landscape-the wild,
thick-grown forest, in which pines and
birch strive for the mastery; the slug
gish river now broadening into a sedgy
mere, and deep, soft, marshy meadows
roughly railed with split timber. But,
above all, the landscape conveys to a
stranger from the west of Europe a
sense of space, as of a country where
every tree is not numbered; where
there is much land and few men; where
it is cheaper and easier to make a
fresh road over a new bit of land than
to repair the ruts of the old track. But
when the sun goes down behind a hill,
throwing a bright light on the foliage
of the wood opposite-a foliage not of
a dusky blue-green, but with the dark
pines relieved by the lightest, freshest
green, the green of the birches-and
the light twinkles on the silver birch
stems and the surface of the quiet river
turns to go'd, then one sees the Rus
sian sunset as portrayed by Turgenieff
with a glamour over its loneliness. At
that moment the sight recalled the
landscape seen so often in stage paint
ing, and the Russian peasants are opera
chorus peasants, dressed in bright red
skirts buckled round the waist and
hanging loose over the trousers, which
are always thrust irtto long boots.
Uver the skirt they wear a shieepokia
coming down to their ankles. The
women wear pink or red dresses (the
Slav likes bright colors), head neck
laces, a gaudy handkerchief over the
head, and the legs, when they are not
bare, tied round with bands.
IAt last we arrive at Gatchina, but
see nothing of the palace from the
train. Then we come to Tsarskoe
Solo, where there is another palace,
and then the line, skirting the last hill,
enters the great level marsh in which
St. Petersburg is built. There are no
environs, but gradually you see rising
out of the plain a mass of trees, over
which emerge spires and domes, and
then the train rolls into St. Petersburg.

In the year 1123 Domenico Michielis
the Doge of Venice, undertook a cru
sade in Syria and Palestine, routed the
Saracens and entered Jerusalem in 1124.
There the Doge found himself greatly
embarrassed for want of moaey, as the
expected supplies had not arrived, and
the Venetian troops (mercenaries for
the most part) clamored for immediate
payment under the threat of wholesale
desertion. Then Domenico Nichieli
ordered a large number of pieces of
leathier to be stamped with the pommel
of his sword, on which his name and
coat of arms were engraved, adding
the number of gold coins each was in
tended to represent. And behold, the
money-lenders in Jerusalem had such
respect for the Doge and his honesty,
and so great faith in the credit of the
city of Venice, that they advanced the
required amount on the security of
those pieces of leather, which then
passed into currency under the name
"Michieletti." They were afterward
redeemed in Venice on presentation.
and at a later period added to the coat
of-arms of the wenetian nobility.

Our words but half reveal
The depth of human tenderness,
The wealth of love we feel;
Or paint pale Grief beside her dead
Mute Agony with tears unshed I
To feel the burdened soul afire
With passion unexpressed,
How weak the sorg. hlow cold the lyre
That sings its wild unrest ;
Where music fails, no words can tell
What music leaves unutterable..
But there's a language ever mute
Older that olden speech,
That needs no song nor gifted lute
The listening heart to reach
The eye's swift flash. the hand's sweet touch,
How true they are ; they tell how much1
And when to heaven in prayer we bend,
And cannot name our need.
How sweet to feel a Constant Friond
The heart aright can read;
Though pallid lips be mute, He hears
The deeper eloquence of tears.
If, then, 0, love, I come to thee,
And with thy hand in mine,
Even though my lips may silent be,
Believe the love that's thine.
And let my heart in silence plead
True heart alone true heart can read.
