THE GOSPEL OF HEALTHL
D. TALIAGE'S SUNDAY SERMON,
A Few Timely Words in Regard to
SE XT: "Till a dart strike throU9h his liter.'
-Proverbs, vii., 2.
There is a fashion in srnieoics. A com
paratirely small part of the ltibie is called or
for texts. Most of the pasages of Scripture,
when announced at the op' nmg of sermons,
immediately divide the ns .lvs it.) old dis
cussions that we have heard from bovhood.
and the et'ect on us is soporitic. The auditor
guesses at the start just what the preacher
will say. There are very important ch:pters
and verses that have never been preached
from. Much of mr lifetime 1 amit devoiting
to unlocking thes- gel.I che-is and blasting
open these quarries. We talk about the
heart, and sing about the heart, but if you
refer to the physical organ t hat we call the
heart, it has not half so tuch to do with
spiritual health or disrase, moral exaltation
or spiritual depretsion. as th' organ to the
consideration o; which X0l:non calls us in
the text. when :!' lcs-rih- s sin 1roxgressing
"till a dart strike thr uzh his liver.
Soiomon's an:atomtical a:id physiological

nearly 3,000 years aheaC or the scientists of
his day. lie. more than 1,o years before
Christ, seemed to know about the circulation

speaks of the pitcher at the fou-tain, he evi
dently means the three canal: leading from
the heart that receive tie bood like pitchers.
When he speaks in Eccl siastes of thesilver
cord of life, he evidently i -ais the spina;
marrow, about which in sir day Drs. MIaye
and Carpenter, and Dalton, and Flint, and
Brown-Sequard have experimented. And
Solomon recorded in the Bible thousands of
years before scientists discovered it, that in
his time the spinal cord relaxed in old age.
producing the tremors of hand and head:
"Or if the silver cord l, looend."
In the text he reveals the fact that he had
studied that largest glan..' of the human sys
tem, the liver, not by the eectric light of the
modern dissecting room, but by the dim light
of a comparatively dark age, and yet had
seen its important funt-tion in the God-built
castle of the human body, its selecting and
secreting power, its curious cells, its elon
gated, branching tubes. a divine workman
ship in central, an:l right, and left lobe, and
the hepatic artery through which God con
ducts the crimson tiies. )h. this vital organ
is like the eye of God in that it n-ver sleeps.
Solomon knew of it and had noticed either
in vivisection or post mortent -what awful at
tacks sin and lissipation make upon it, until
with the 'iat of Almighty God it bids the
body and soul separatt, and the one it cont
rmands to the grave and the other it sends to
judgment-a javelin of retribution, not
glancing off or making a slight woun.l, but
piercing it from side to side "till the dart
strike through the liver." Galen and Hippo
crates ascribe to the liver the mot of the
world's moral depre-ssion, and the word
melancholy means black bile.
I preach to you this morning ,he gospel of
health. In taking diagnosis of the d:seases
of the soul you must also take the diagnoses
of the diseases of the body. As if to -ecog
-nize this, one whole book of the New Testa
ment was written by a physician. Luke was
a doctor, and he discources mouch of physical
effects, and he tells of the good Samaritan's
medication of the wounds by pouring in oi:
and wine, and recognzes hunger as a hin
drance to hearing the Gospel, so that the
5.00 were fed: and records the sr-are diet of
the prodigal away from home. anI the extin
guished eyesight of th- beggar by the way
side, and lets us know of the heniorrhage of
the wounds of the dying Christ and the
miraculous post-mortem resuscitation. And
any estimate of the spiritual condition that
does not ineude a'so an estima:o of the
ph 'cal condition is incomplete.
Frst, let Christian people avoid the mis
take that they are all wrong with God be
cause they suffer from depression of spirits.
Many a consecrated man has found his spir
itual sky befoged'. and his hose and heaven
blotted out, ana himself plunged chin deep in
the Slough of Despond. and hss said: " Iv
heart is not right with God,and I think I must
have made a mistake, and insteadl of being a
child of light I am a child of darkness. No
one can feel as gloomy as I feel and be a
Christian." And he has gone to his initst'r
for consolation, and he has collected Filavei's
books, and Cecil's books, and lBaxter's books.

My brother, your trouble is not with

Another practical use of tmis suoject is for
the young. The theory is abroad that they
must first sow their wild oats, and afterward
Michigan wheat. Let me brtak the delusion.
Wild oats are getnerally sown in th~e liver,
and they can never be pulled upt. They so
procpy that organ that there is ino room
m-r the impnantation of a righteous ct-op.
You see aged men about us at SO erect,
agile, splendid. grand old men. How much
wild oats did they sow between 1S years and
e0: -None, absoluto none. God does not
very often honor with old age those who
have in early life sacrificed swine on the
altar of the bodily temple. Remember, 0,
young man, that while in after life and after
years of dissipation you may perhaps have
'our heart changed, religion does not
change the liver. Trembling and stag
gering along the e streets to-day are
men, all bent and decayed and pre
maturely old for the reason that they are
paying for liens they put upon their physical
estate before they were .;0. By early dissip:
tion they put on their body a first mortgage,
and a second mortgage, and a third mort
gage to the devil, and these mortgages are
now being foreclosed, and all that remains cf
their earthly estate the undertaker will
soon put out of sight. Many years ago.
in fulfillment of my text, a dart struck
through their liver, and it is there yet. God
forgives, but outraged physical law never,
never, never. That has a Sinai, but no Cal
vary. Solomon in my text knew what he
wai talking about. He had in early life
b-en a profligate, and he rises up on his
throne of worldly splendor to shriek out a
warning to all the centuries. David, bad in
early life, but good in later life, cries out
with an agony of earnestness: "Remember
not the sins of iy youth."
St -phen A. D'tiglas gave the name of
squatter sovereignty to those who went out
W est and took possession of lands and held
them by right of preoccupation. Let a
floek of sins settle on your heart before you
get to , 'ears of age. and they will in all
l1q.hability keep possession of it by an in
forimal squatter sovereignty. "1 prom
ise to pay at the bank $50) six months
from date," says the promissory note. "I
nromise to pay my life thirty years from
late at the lank of the grave." says every
infraction of the laws of your physica!
What ' Will a mans boly never com
pletely recover from an early dissipation in
this world; Never. How about the world
to come' Perhaps God will fix it up in the
resurrection body s) that it will not have to
go limping through all eternity, but get the
liver thoroughly damaged and it will stay
damnaged. 'hysicians call it cancer of the
liver, or hardening of the liver, or cirrhosis
of the liver, or intlamnation of the liver, or
fatty degeneration of the liver, but : olomon
puts 11these pangs into one figure and says:
Till the dart strikethrough his liver."
That young man smoking cgarettes and
smoking cigars has no idea thi. he is getting
for himself a smoked liver. That young man
has no idea that lie has by early dissipation
so depleted his energies that he will go into
the battle only half armed. Napoleon lost
Waterloo days before it w as fought' Had he
atta'ked the English arnmy before it vas re
enforced, and taken it division by division.
he might have won the day, but he waited
until he had only 100.000 men against 20 ,000.
And here is a young man who, if lie put all
his forces against the regiment of youthful
temptations in the strength of God he might
dr ive them back, but he is allowing "ern to
be reinforced by the whole army of r.::d'ife
temptations, and when all these combiried
forces are massed against him and no Grouchy
com.:s to help him, and Bluneher has come to
h; lp his foes, what but immortal defeat can
Some vears ago a scientific lecturer went
throu;h the country exhibiting on great
canvas different parts of the human bo-ly
""her healthy and different parts when dis
ease:1. And what the world wants now is
same eloquent scientist to go through the
country showing to our young people on
blazing canvas the drunkards liver. the
idler's liver, the libertine's liver, the gani
bier's liver.. Perhaps th.- sl>etacle might
stop some young man before he comes to the
same catastropdhe, and the dart strike through
his on n1 liver.
My hearer, this is the first sermon you have
heard on the gospel of health, and it may be
the last von will ever hear on that subject: and
I charge you. in the name of God and Christ,
and usefulness and eternal destiny, take bet
ter care of your health. When some of you
die. if your friends put on your tombstone a
truthful epitaph, it will read: "Here lies the
victim of late suppers," or it will b-: "Be
hold what chicken salad at midnight will do
for a man:" or it will be: "'Ten cigars a
day closed m' earthly existence:" or i'
will b:": "rat down in a cold draught

be: "I died of thin shoes last winter;'? or it
will be: "'Wenit out ithout an oveoat andr

cents; it'll ta-te as ,ood as turkey-if we
look at Poonthie while we eat it."
But the thought of Turkey would not
disappear. for 'oonth ie forbade. When
ever her father came into the rom she
would look up expectantly and shout:
"Did you hwing the turkey?"
The excuse that it was not time for
the turkey answered fairly for several
days, but both parents soon became mor
bid on the subject. Frank tried again
and again, to find so:nething in the
room which could be spared and sold for
the price of a small turkey, and
Annie spent a wretched day in wonder
ing whether she could muster ip
courage enough to sneak into the one
p:twn-broker's shop in the city, and
pledge a tiny gold pin-Poonthie's
own-for money enough to buy a turkey
for Poontlie's sake. Bnt both were
unsucces-ful, and when, the very after
noon before Thanksgiving. Poonthie
greeted her father with the usual shout.
Frank took her in his arm= and said:
"It's too bad for anything, little
darling. but Papa couldn't find a turkey
t Wly," :aid Poonthie, with a wonder
ing gaze, '"ith that the way folkth get
turkeys ?-uss find 'em ?"

thmng to do"

dropped her so as to put his arm around
his wife, who see:ned to need his rtten
tion just then. A tall for Poonthie to
go play with the "little gyle down
thtairth," gave Frank an opportunity to
use all sorts of severe language regarding
his luck, and his foolishness in dragging
a sweet woman dcwa to poverty,
and his wicke.lness in bring up
an angel child like a beggar's brat. It
also gave Annie a chance to tell her hus
band what a manly, brave. unc:mplain
ing fellow he was, a d ho w Heaven would
appreciate him, all in good time, even if
music pubis!.ers didn't; in the end they
both felt a great deal happier than if they
had been rich enough to buy a whole
mat ket fuil of turkeys.
Indeed they were so absorbed in each
other that hours might have passed tin
lteded had not the couple been dis
turbed by some vigorous kicks at the
door. Frank turned the knob and in
staggered Poonthie, bearing in her arms
a turkey apparently as large na herself.
"Youthe a thi:ly old papa,"she panted,
after carefully seating the turkey in her
little rocking chair as if it were a bab.

"DOCTORING OLD TI!E."
A Striking Picture-A Itvival of Old
In one of Harper's issues is given a very
fine illustration of Roberts's celebrated paint
ing, known as "Do:-toring 01( Time." It
represents a typical old-timer, with his bel
lows, blowing the dust from an ancient clock,
with its cords and weights carefully secured.
One of those clocks in this generation is ap
preciated only as a rare relic.
The suggestive name, Doctoring Old
Time," brings to our mini another version
of the title, used for another purpose-'Uld
We learn, through a reliable source. that
one of the most enterprising proprietary
medlicine firms of the country, hats been for
years investigating the formulas arud medical
preparations usel in the beginning of this
century, and even before, with a view of as
certainiig why people in our great-grand
fathers' time enjoyed a health an-I physical
vigor so seldom found in the present genera
ton. They now think they have secured the
secret or secrets. They lind that the prevail
ing opinion that then existel. that "Nature
has a remedy for every existing disorder,
was true, and acting under this belief, our
grandparents used the common herbs anl
plants. Continual trespass upon the forest
domain has made these herbs less abundant,
and has driven them further from civiliza
tion, until they have been rlisc-ardetd as reme

H. H. Wllarner, propriptor of Warner's
safe cure, an 1 founder of the Warner ob
servatory. Rochester, N. Y., has been pr.ss
ing investigations in this direction, into the
annals of old family historis, until he has
secured some very valuable formulas, from
which his firm is now preparing medicines,
to be sold by all druggists.
They will, we learn. be known under the
general title of "Warner's Log Cabin Reme
dies." Among these medic-ines will be a
"Sarsaparilla." for the blood and liver "Log
Cabin Hops and Buchu Remedy," for the
stomach, etc., "Lon Cabin Cough and Con
snmption Remedy,'' a remedy calle:l "Scalp

internal and external us -. and an old valu
able discovery for Catarrh, called "Log Cabin
Rose Cream." Among the list is aNo a "Log
Cabin FPsster," and a "Log Cabin Liver
From tne number of remedies, it will be
seen that they do not propose to cure all
diseases with one preparation. It is believed
by many that with these remedies a new era
is to draw upon suffering humanity, and that
the close of the nineteenth century will sea
these roots and herbs, as compounded under
the title of Warner's Log Cabin Remedies, as
popular as they were at its beginning. Al
though they come in the form of plroprietary
medicine, yet they will be none the less wel
come, for suffering humanity has become
tired of moden doctoring and the public has
great confidence in any remedies put up by
the fin of which H. H. Warner is the head.
The people have become suspicious of the
effects of doctoring with poisonous drugs.
Few realize the injurious effects following the
prescriptions of many modern plhysireians.
These effects of poisonous drugs, already
prominent, will become more pronounced in
coining generations. Therefore. we can cor
dially wish the eld-fashioned niv remedies
the best of success.
Overwork is a waste of capital.

There is great intensity of the physical
condition sometimes, td there are facts
which we cannot go behind. In illustra
tion further of facts which settle the points
of a prompt and permanent cure, the fol
lowing cases are cited: In 18. 1 Mrs. Mary
K. Sliced suffered terribly with chronic
neuralgia. She writes from 1110 Maryland
Avenue, Washington, D. C. In the first in
stance she states: "I suffered terribly with
neuralgia in the face: very severe attack
extending to back and shoulders; suffered
intensely. Tried St. Jacobs Oil; had parts
well rubbed at night; in the morning all
pain gone, magica'lly." June 10, 1887, she
writes from 224 Eleventh Street, S. W., as
follows: "Four years ago I sent you a vol
untary certificate setting iorth the fact that
I hail been a great sufrerer with neuralgia in
my face, neck and shoulders. I obtained a
bottle of St. Jacobs Oil. and after three ap
pliations I was entirely relieved from all
ain, and from that time to the present I
have never had a return. The effect was
miraculous." Again, Feb. 6, 1887, Mr. R.
G. Troll, St. Louis, Mo., writes: "In March
ISM, I suffered terribly with neuralgia ; had
suffered nearly three years. Applied St.
Jacobs Oil at 8.1.5 A. M.; at 8.40 took the
rag off; at 9 A. M. went to work. In less
than live minutes after that the pain was
gone. The one application cured me. Have
not had return ot it since." Mr. E. W.
S angler, York, Pa., June 17, 1887, writes:
"Y ears ago had neuralgia; am not subject to
it now. The cure by the use of St. Jacobs
Oil was permanent. There has been no re
currence of the painful affliction." Chas.
W. Law, Jr., Pottstown, Pa., April 19, 1887,
writes: "Was troubled for vears with neu
raigia in neck and head. Tried St. Jacobs
Oil; had tried different kinds of remedies
without effect. One bottle of the former did the
business. No return of pain and aches." In
almost every instance the reports are the same.
