OTHER SHEEP I HAVE.
GOD'S FLOCK IS NOT ALL WITHIN
THE CHURCH'S FOLD.
Dr. Talmage Preaches a Powerful Sermon
to the Non-Churcboers-Reasons iWby
tUnbelievers Should Become Believers -
All May YetBe Saved.
BROOKLYN, Jan. 11.-The following
powerful sermon, addressed to non
ehurch-goers, was delivered by Dr. Tal
mage this morning in the Academy of
Music, this city, and again in the even
ing at the New York Academy of Music.
Dr. Talmage's text was John X, 10:
"Other sheep I have which are not of
There is no monopoly In religion.
The grace of God is not a nice little pro
perty fenced off all for ourselves. It is
not a king's park, at which we look
through a barred gateway, wishing we
tnight go m and pluck the flowers and
look at the deer and the statuary. It is
a father's orchard, and there are bars to
letdown and gates to swing open.
Have you any idea that because you
were baptized at eight months of age,
and because you have all your life been
surrounded by hallowed influsnces. you
have a right to one whole side of the
Lord's table, spreading yourself out so
nobody else can sit there? You will
have to haul in your elbows, for there
will come a great multitude to sit at the
table and on both sides of you. You
are not going to have this monopoly of
religion. "Other sheep have I which
arenot of this fold."
McDonald, the Scotchman, has on the
Scotch hills a great flock of sheep. Mc
Donald has four or fire thousand head
of sheep. Some are browsing in the
heather, some are on the hills, some are
in the valleys, a few are in the yard.
One day Cameron comes over to Mc
Donald and says: "McDonald, you
-have thirty sheep. I have been count
Ing them." "Oh, no!" says McDonald.
"I have feur or five thousand." "Ah!"
says. Cameron, "you are mistaken. I
have just counted them. There are
tthirty." "Why," says McDonald, "do
you suppose that is all the sheep I have?
I have sheep on the distant hills and in
the valleys, ranging and roaming every
where. Other sheep have I which are
not of this fold."
So Christ comes. Here is a group of
Christans, and there is a group of Chris
tians; here is a Methodist fold, here is a
Presbyterian fold, here is a Baptist fold,
here is a Lutheran fold, and we make
our annual statistics, and we think we
!can tell you just how many Christians
there are in the world, how many there
are in the church, how many in all these
denominations. We aggregate them,
and we think we are giving an intelligent
and an accurate account; but Christ
comes and he says: "You have not
counted them right. There are those
whom you have never seen. those of
whom you have never heard. I have
my-ehildren in all parts of the earth, on
all the islands of the sea, on all the con
tinents, in all the mountains and in all
valleys. Do you think that these few
sheep you have counted are all the sheep
I have? There is a great multitude that
no man can number. Other sheep have
I which are not of this fold."
Christ in my text talks of the convor
lonofithe Gentiles as confidently as
-theagh they. had already been converted.
He'sots forth the idea that his people
will come from all parts of the earth,
from all ages, from all circumstances,
from all conditions. "Other sheep have
I which are not of this fold."
Itnthe first placelIremark the Hea
'enly Shepherd will find manny of his
sheenpneng those who are at present
*'~i~liirchgoers. There are different
kinds of churches. Sometimes you will
find a church made up only of Christi
ans- Everything seems finished. The
church reminds you of those skeleton
plants from which by chemical prepara

winte and delicate and beautitul and fin
ished. All that is wanted is aglass
ease put ever them. The minister on
the Sabbath has only to take an ostrich
featherand brash off the dust that has
acuuated in the last six days of busi
ness, and then they are as cold and
- batiful and delicate as before. Every
thing is finished-finished sermons, fin

Another church is like an armory, the
Noundof drum and fifecamlng more re
cts te the Lord's army. We say to
-e applicants, "Come in and get your
equipment.. Here is the bath in which
you are to be cleansed, here is the hel
met you are to put on your head, here
are the sandals you are to put on your

put'over your heart, here is the sword
you are to take in your right hand and
fight his battle with. Quit yourselves
*There are those here, perhaps, who
say, "It is now ten, fifteen years since I
was in the habit. the rerular habit, of
-church going." I know all about your
case. I am going to tell you something
that will be startling at the first, and
that is that you are going to become the
lord's sheep. "Oh," you say. "that
is impossible; you don't know my case;
you don't hnow how far I am from any
thiig of that kind." I know all about
your case. I have been up and down
the world. I know why some of you do
not attend upon Christian services.
I go further, and make another an
nouncement in regard to you, and that
is, you are not only to become the
Lord's sheep, but you are going to be
come the Lord's sheep this hour. God
s going to call you graciously by his
spirit; you are going to come into the
fold of Christ. This sermon shall not
be soemuch for those who are Christians.
I have preached to them hundreds and
-thousands of times. The sermon that I
preeh now is going to be chiefly for
those who consider themselves outsiders,
but who may happen to be in the house.
and the chief employment of the Chris
tian people here to-day will be to pray
for those who are not accustomed to at
tend upon Christian sanctuaries.
You are now this hour in the tide of
Christian influences. You are going to
be swept in; your voice is going to be
heard in prayer; you are going to be
consecrated to God; you are going to
live a life of usefulness, and your deatb
bed is going to be surrounded by Chris
tian sympathizers, and devout men will
carry you to your burial when your
work is done, and these words will be
chiseled for your epitaph: 'Precious
in the sight of the Lord is the death of
his .saitt," a~n all that history is
going to begin today. "Other sheep
have I which are not of this fold."
Again I remark, the Heavenly Shep
herd is going to find many of his sheep
among those who are now rejecters of
Christianity. I do not know how you
came to reject Christianity. I do net
knew whetnier it was through hearing
Theodre Parker preach, or whether it
was reading RenaD's "Life of Jesus,"
or whether it was through some skeptic
in the store or factory. Or it may be
probably is the case-that you were dis
gusted with religion and disgusted with
Christianity because some man who
professed to be a Christian defrauded
you, and he being a member or the
church, and you taking him as a repre
sentative of the Christian religion, you
said, "Well, if that's religion, I don't
want any of it."
I do not know how you came to reject
Critinty, but you frankly tell me
vou do reject it; you do not think the
Bible is the word of God. although there
are many things in it vou admire; you
do not think that Christ was a divine
beirg. although you think he was a very
cod man. You say, "It the Bible is
true-the most of the Bible be true-1
nevertheless think the earlier part of
the Bible is an allegory." And there
are fifty things that I believe you do
not believe. Nevertheless they tell me
in regard to you that you are an accom
modating, you are an obliging persoa.
If I should come to you and ask of you
a favor you would grant it if it were
possible. It would be- a joy for you to
grant me a favor. If any of your friends
came to you and wanted an accommo
dation and you could accommodate
them, how glad you would be!
Now I am going to ask you a favor. I
want you to oblige me. The accomoda
Lion will cost you nothing, and you will
give me great happiness. Of course you
will not deny me. I want you as an
experiment to try the Christian religion.
If it does not stand the test. discard it;
if it does, receive it.
If you were very sick, and you had
been given -up of the doctors, and I
took a bottle of medicine from my pock
et and said, "Here is medicine I am
sure will help you; it has cured fifty
people," vou would say, "Oh, I haven't
any confidence in it.; they tell me all
tnese medicines will fail me." "Well,"
I say, "will you not, as a matter of ac
comimodation to myself, just try it."
"Well," you say, "I have no objection
to trying it; if it will be any satisfaction
to you I will try it." You take it.
Now you are sick in disquietude, sick
i'i sin. You are not happy. You
laugh sometimes when you are miser
able. There come surges of unhappi
noes over vour soul that almost swamp
you. You are unhappy. struck through
with unrest. Now, will you not try
this solace, this febrifuge, this anodyne,
this Gospel medicine?
"Oh," you say, "I haven't any faith
In it." As a matter of accommodation,
let me introduce you to the Lord Jesus
Christ, the Great Physician. "Why."
you say, "I haven't any faith in him."
Well, now, will you not just let him
come and try his power on your soul?
Just let me introduce him to you. I do
not ask you to take my word for it. I
dc not ask 3 ou to take the, advice of
clergymen. Perhaps the clergymen
may be prejudiced; perhaps we may be
speaking professionally; perhaps we
may give you wrong advice; perhaps
we may give you wrong advice; perhaps
we are morbid on that subject; so I do
not ask you to take the advice of clergy
men. I ask you to take the advice of
very respectabie laymen, such as Wil
liam Shakespeare, the dramatist; as
William Wilberforce, the stc~tesman; as
Isaace Newton, the astronomer; as Rob
ert Boyle. the philospher; as Locke, the
metaphysician; as Morse, the electri
These men never preached-they
never pretended to preach-but they
come out, and putting down, one his
telescope, and another the electrician's
wire, and another the parliamentary
scroll-they come out, and they com
mend Christ as a comfort to all the :.o
ple, a Christ that the world needs.
Jorw I do not ask you to take the ad
vice of clergymen. Take the advice of
these lavmen. It does not make any
difierence to me at this juncture what
you have said against the Bible; it does
not make any difference to me at this
juncture how you may have caricatured
religion. Take the advice of men who
are prominent in secular affairs, as these
men whom I have mentioned and otuers
who immediately occur to your mind.
never scoffed at skepticism. I have
been a natural skeptic. I do not know
what the first word was that I uttered
after eutesdng the world but I think it
muM have been "why ?"
There are some things I believe that
you do not, but there are some things
that I believe and you do believe. You
believe in love-a father's love, a moth

loves you more than all of them to

ome in. Christ iooks in all tenderness,
with the infinite tenderness of the gos
pel, into your soul, and he says, "ThIs
is your time for heaven," and then he
wajes his hand to the people of God,
ad he says, "Other sheep have I which
are not of this fold."
Again I remark, the Heavenly Shep

FREE COINAGE OF SILVER.
THE BILL PASSES THE SENATE BY A
A Free Coiuage Dill. 'ure and Simple.
Substiti.ted for the Finance Bill and
Pased-Ingasb has an Awakening and
Votes for it.
WASHLNGTON, Jan. 14.-According
to the arrangement made yesterday the
Senate proceeded to the consideration
of the financial bill immediately after
the reading of the journal.
Ingalls took the floor and said that
there were two portenous evils which
menaced the safety, if they did not en
danger the existence, of the republic.
The first was ignorant, debased, de
graded and spurious suffrage-a fester
ed suffrage-a suffrage contaminated
with the feculent sewage of decayed
nations-a suffrage intimidated and
suppressed in the South-a suffrage
impure and corrupt, apathetic and in
different in the great cities of the
North-so that it was doubtful to his
mind whether for a half century there
had been a presidential election in this
country that expressed the deliberate
and intelligent judgment of the whole
body of the American people. The
election bill was intended to deal with
one part of the great evil to which he
had alluded, but it was an imperfect,
partial and incomplete remedy. Vio
lence was bad, but fraud was no better,
and it was more dangerous because it
was more insidious. There could be
no safety and no stable and permanent
peace in this country and under this
government until it was just as safe
for a black Republican to vote in Miss
ississippi as it was for a white Demo
crat to vote in Kansas.
The second evil to which he had ad
verted was the tyranny of combined,
concentrated, centralized, conscience
less and incorporated capital, and the
people were considering that great
problem now. The conscience of the
nation was shocked at the injustice of
modern society. The moral sentiment
of mankind was aroused atthe unequal
distribution of wealth and the unequal
diffusion of the burdens and the bene
fits and privileges of society. We were
accustomed to speak of ours as "the
land of the free and the home of the
brave," and it would soon be the home
of the rich and the land of the slave.
It was no wonder that the laboring
and agricultural classes of this country
had at last awakened; and speculators
must take warning. Referring to the
late election, he said that it was neith
er a Republican defeat nor a Democrat
ic victory. it was a great uprising, in
dependent of any, superior to both, po
litical parties. It was a crisis that
might become a cata4strophe. It was a
peaceful revolution. He attributed
the depression in the country in a great
measure to the demonetization Act of
1873. He did not claim that that Act
had been passed fraudulently. His on
ly explanation of its passage was that
both houses of Congress and the Presi
dent had been hypnotized by the money
power. He had not the slightest doubt
that the great majority of the people,
irrespective of party, was in favor ofithe
free coinage of silver, and had been for
the past fifteen years. They had been
"paltered with in a double sense," and
their will had been thwarted, defied
and contumaciously trodden under
Warnings and admonitions had been
plenty in this debate; but he would say
to those who were arraying themselves
against the deliberately expressed judg
ment of the American people-he would
say to the Senate, to the House and to
the Executive-that there would come
a time when people would not be trified
with on this subject. Some time the
people would elect a Ihouse of Repre
sentatives, Senate and President who
would carry out the party pledges and
executive the popular will. The polti
al power of the nation had been trans
ferred from the circumference to the
centre, and people of that centre were
uanimously demanding the free coin
age of silver. It was for that reason
e should cordially support the amend
ment of the Senator from Nevada. In
oing so he would not only follow the
ictates of his own judgment, but
would carry out the wishes of the great
majority of his constituents, irrespec
tive of party or political affiliations.
Ingalls closed at a quarter past 12,
having spoken little over two hours.
As he took his seat he was heartily ap
lauded, as well from the floor as from
the densely crowded galleries.
Jones, of Nevada, next spoke in sup
ort of Stewart's amendment, conclud
ing his speech with these words: "I
elieve it to be the privilege and desti
y of this republic-the evangel of hu
an liberty-to solve the great prob
lem of perfect money, the riddle which
the sphinx of civilization is forever
utting to nations. As in the case of
the enigmas of old, the failure to solve
this enigma means to be destroyed. Its
solution will be hailed with loud ac
claim wherever the foot of man treads,
wherever the heart of man beats. It
s my conviction that when the
science of money comes to be thorouh
v mastered, its true philosophy under
stood and the teachings of that science
nd that philosophy practically applied
over the whole earth, more will have
been accomplisheli for mankind, more
to promote justice, to relieve pain, to
assuage grief, to sooth woe, to lighten
care, to brighten hope, and to bless and
onsecrate human life than can be ac
omplished by any other discovery or
development of civilization."
At the close of Jone's remarks it wvas
stated by the Vice-P'residient that Gib
son and Iliscock did not desire to ad
dress the Senate except under the ten
The general debate haying closed,
dr. Aldr ch offered a substitute for

effect was to restore the law to what

Gorman was the first to speak under
the ten minute rule. In conclusion he
offered as an amendment a proposition

stant, as an.- alternative, providing for
the imposition of a coinage charge on
Vast, Plumb and Eustis spoke for
e silver and against the qualifying
mendments. Then Gorman and Ald
rich withdrew their amendments.
After remarks by Reagan, Call and
'eller in favor of Stewart's amendment
and Morrill against,it, Aldrich asked
twart whether his amendment would
take from the people the common law
right of making contracts payable in
Stewart replied that the amendment
took away no right.
Aldrich-"Is it your inteution to take
it away ?"
Stewart--"I would be glad to take it
away, but I don't think that any com
mon law right can be taken away."
Sherman suggested that iin the issue
of railroad bonds there was a provision
for payment in gold coin and he asked
Reagan (who had got into the discus
sion) whether it was his purpose to
make such bonds payable in those
Reagan did not know whether Con
gress could do that or not; but it it
ould be done, it was his purpose to do
that very thing.
McPherson announced himself as bit
terly opposed to Stewart's amendment.

The discussion on Stewart's amend
ment went on and remarks were made
by Plumb, Morgan and Cockrell.

Fenr Perfect Days.
We are told that the gods fell into a
dispute one day as to which of the four
seasons was the favorite of mankind.
Seeing no other way to bring peace from
out the bable of tongues, Jove command
ed that each season produce a master
piece and present the same to a quorum
of the gods.
First, spring envolved a day that shim
mered like an opal through rosy mists
and low-lying clouds, tinted like the
plumage of a gray dove. And she bor
dered it with pale violets that deepened
as they grew, until they showed the pur
ple of King Solomon's robes. And she
scattered it all over with touches of
green, like up-spring'ing grass by loosen
ed water courses, and sprays of blos
soms, like snow when the sunshine finds
it. And she gave it the voice of a wood
thrush in the twilight and drew over it
a veil-of silver rain, shot through and
through with broken rainbows and sun
Then summer brought a day of gold
en calm, above whose brow were lan
guid poies and blue cornfiowers steep
ed in sunshine. And a veil like the haze
on the far hills enveloped it, and its
voice was the noonday note of the cushat
dove, hid deep in the iields of snowy
buckwheat. And the hum of drowsy
bees was like the lullaby song that moth
ers sing to their sleepy children, while
above it, like a butte.1lly that poises
above a 'yellow rose, was the infinite
peace of a cloudless heaven.
Next, autumn poured a crystal goblet
high with wine and placed it in the hands
of a day that laughed like a beautiful wo
man and wore amethysts and topaz and
great shining rubies at its throat. And
the breath of this day made all the earth
glad, so that it drank the wine of grapes
and summoned the winds of heaven to
smite their harps for joy. And its voice
was like the voice of silver bugles when
brave men march to war or the mellow
notes of trumpets when conquerors re
turn unto their homes.
Last, winter laid at the feet of the
gods a fair, dead day, whose loveliness
was like the loveliness of a bride whom
death had taken. Its shroud was like
the inner heart of milk weed when rosy
fingered children first unfold it and
about its brows were wrapped frost lace
finer than cobwebs in the light of a wane
moon. A single diamond blazed upon
it's breast, and in its pale and quiet hands
was loosely wreathed a strand of price
And the gods, being much together,
were- bewildered wi th the masterpieces
of each season's handiwork, and could
make no choice. So they ordered that,
while time endured. these perfect tests
of seasonable wveather should be per
petuated for the benefit of the sons and
daughters of earth, and that somewhere
within the round of the year should fall
four absolutely perfect days. Who
shall say that the past month did not
bring in winter's masterpiece some
where within the last quarter of its
Lively Times in Colorado.
DENTER. CoL., Jan. 13.-The row
which was started in the lower House
of the General Assembly Friday night
between the faction of the Republicans
known as -'the gang" and the cornbina
tion formed by "the gang smashers" to
see who should have control of the
Iouse, was renewed again at last
night's sesssion. Fears were enter
tained of serious trouble, and before the
House was called to order some half
dozen sergeants-at-arms were sworn in
by "the gang" who have the speaker on
their side. These were stationed all
over the House to promptly suppress
any demonstrations that might be made,
but it is reportedl on good authority that
the "combine" had a number of men
in th lobby ready to take a hand, had
a personal encounter occurred between
the memibers, as was expectedl, there is
no telling wvhat the result would have
been. After the House was called to
order, Voorhees, Democrat, got the,
floor and ohrarged that bribery had been
atterppted. This caused a heated de
bate, and resulted in the apointment of
a committee to investigate. After con
siderable filibustering the House ad
journed until to-day. It is expected
that the light will be renewed with
energy. The strength of the too fac
tions is the 'gang" 21, the ''combine"
CAtLoTTrE, N. C., Jan. 9.-Four
mysterious mnurdIers have occurred in
Cranville county since Saturday night.
Dick Page. a colored laborer, was the
ist victim. His body' was found Sat

afterwards the dead bodies of both were

bitter turmoil the last two days over the

McGrath, president of the State Al
McGrath made a statement regarding
the letter denying that he had ever had
any conversation with Tamer upon the
subject of his candidacy for the United
States Senate. but the following resolu

"Whereas, a letter dated Dec. Ist,
1890, signed 'C. I. Turner,' has been re
calved by Frank McGrath, president of
the Farmers' Alliance and Industrial
Union, containing infamous suggestions
and offers for the betraval of the most
sacred trust and confidence; therefore.
"Resolved, that we regard the affair
solely as another characteristic attempt
on the part of politicians in Topeka and
Washington to prove that moral laws
have no place in politics, and the desire
on their part to thwart the will of the
people by any means, however base and
corrupt; that we regard it as only
another reason for standing firmly to

Sheriff Dobson of Harper County in an
attempt to sell farms. The officer and
the attorney for the Johnston Loan and
Trust Company of Arkansas City has
orders of sale on property against which
the mortgages aggregated $27,000, and
when they attempted to dispose of the
farms they were surrounded by a band
of Alliance members, who ordered them

the Sheriff proceeded with his business,
but before he could get a bid he was
jostled from his point of vantage and
threatened with further personal vio

the following statement: "The Ameri

the opinion of eminent counsel from
different States, has been brought face
to face with grave obstacles to the con

is but adopting the course such counsel
have united in advising. It believes
that in thus promptly taking this action
its course will meet the approval of the
