ESTHER THE ORHAN.
Dr Talmage Finds Many Lessoms in the
Example of the Jeweso.
BBooxtYi, OQt. 7.-Rev. Dr. Tal
mage, who ib still absent on his round
the world tour, has selected as the sub
ject of today's sermon through the press
"Hadasah," the text chosen being Es
ther ii. 7, "And he brought Up Hladas
A beautiful child was born in the cap
ital of Persia. She was an orphan and a
captive, her parents bavmng been stolen
from their Israelitish home and carried
to Shushan and died, leaving their daugh
ter poor and in a strange land. But an
Isrealite who had been carried into the
same captivity was attracted by the
case of the orphan. He educated her in
his holy religion, and ueder the roof of
that good man this adopted child began
to develop a sweetness and excellency
of character, if ever equalled, certainly
never surpassed. Beautiful Hadassat!
Could that adopted tather ever spare her
from his household? Her artlessness,
her girlish sports, her innocerce, her
orphanage. had wound themselves thor
oughly around his heart, just as around
each parent's heart among us there aie
tendrils climbing and fastening and blos
soming and growigstronger. I expect
he was like others who have loved ones
at home-wondering sometimes if sick
ness will come and death and bere ve
ment. Alas, worse than anyting the
father expects happens to his adopted
child! Ahasuerus, a princely scound:el,
deniands that Hadassah, the fairest one
in all the kingdom, become his wife.
Worse than death was marriage to such
mAonstr.of iniquity. How great the
change when this young woman left the
home where God was worshipped and
religion honored to enter a palace de
voted to pride, idolatry and sensuaity!
"As a lamb to the slaughter!"
Ahasuerus knew not that his wife was
a Jewess. At the instigation of the In
famous pime minister the king decreed
that all the Jews in the land should be
slain. Hadassah pleads the cause of
her people, breaking through the rules
of the court and presenting herself in
the very face ot death, crying, 'If I per
ish, I perish!" Oh, it was a sad time
among that enslaved people! They bad
all heard the decree concernig their
death. Sorrow, gaunt and ghastly, sat
in thousands of households, and mothers
wildly Dressed their infants to their
breasts as the days of massacre hastened
on, praying that the same s lord stroke
which slew the mother might also slay
the child, rosebud and bud perishing im
the same blast.
But Hadannah is busy at court. Theo
hard heart oftthe king is touched by her
story, and although he could nottreverse
his decree for the slaying of the Jews he
sent forth an order that they siould arm
themselves for defense. On horseback,
on mules, on dromedarIes, messengers
sped through the land bearing the king's
dispaches, and a shout of joy went up
from that enslaved people at the faint
hope of success. I doubt not many a
rusty blade was taken down and sharp
ened. Unbearded youths grew stout as
giants at the thought of defending moth
ers and sisters. IDesperation strung up
-cowards into heroes, and fragile women,
grasping their weapons, swung them
about the cradles, impatient for the
time to strike the blow In behalf of
household and country.

My subject afords me opportunity of
mlustrating what Christian character
may he under the greatest disadvantages.
There is no Christian now exactly what
he wants to be. Your standard is much
higher than anything you have attained
unto. If terebe any man s pffed up
as to be thoroughly satisfied with the
amount of excellency he has already at
tained, Ihaveinothinlg tomsay to such a
one. But to those who are dissatisfied
with past attninmllents, who are toiling
under disadvantages which are keepimg
them from heing what they ouzht to be,
I hae amasage from God. You each
of you labor under difficulties. There is
something in your temperament, in your
calling, that acts powerfully against you.
Admitting all this, I introduce you to
Haaaah of the t'ext, a noble Christian,
notwithstanding the mosc gigantic difli
culties. She whom you might have
expected to be one of the worst of wo
men, one of the best.
In the first place, our subject is an
illustration of what Christiaxr characrer
may be uder orphanage. This Bible
line tells a long story about Hadassab.
"She had neither father nor mother."
A nobleman had become her guardian,
ht there is no one who can take the
place of a parent. Who so able at
nigt to hear a child's prayer or at
twilight to chide youthful wanderings or
to soothe youthful sorrows? An indi
vidual will go through lIfe bearing the
marks of orphanage. It will require
mre strength, more persistence, more
grace, to make such a one the right kind
of a Christian. He who at 40 years
loses a parent must reel under the blow.
Even down to old age men are accus
tomed to rely upon the counsel or be
powerfully influenced by the advice of
parents if they are stdll ahive.
But how much greater the bereavement
when it comes in early life before the
character is self reliant and wbeoz natu
rally the heart is unsophisticated
and easily tempted!
And yet behold what a nobility of dis
position Hadassah exhibited. Though
father and mother had gone, grace had
tnumped over all disadvantages. Her
willingness to self saornfice, her control
over the king, her humility, her faithful
worship of God, show her to have been
one of the best of the world's Chris
There are those who did not enjoy
remarkable early privileges. Perhaps,
like the beautiful capt'.ve of the text,
you were an orphan. You had huge
sorrows in your little heart. Y ou
sometimes wept in the night when you
knew not what was the matter. You
felt ad sometimes even on the play
ground. Your father or mother did not

next quarter's rent. You cannot think
of striving after a robe ot righteousness
until you can zet means enouth to buy
an overcoat to keep out the c'ld. You
want the bread of 1:f.,, but you think you
must get along without that until you
can buy another barrel of flour for your
wife and chilaren. Sometimes you sit
down disciuraged and almost wish you
Christians in satin slippers, with their
feet on damask ottoman, may scout at
such a class of temptations, but those
who themselves have been in the strug
gle and arip of hard misfortune can ap
preciate the power of these evils to dis
suade the soul away religalous duties.
We admit the strength of the tempta
tion, but then we point to Hadassah,
her poverty equaled by her p:ety. Cour
age, down there in the battle! Hurl
away Scu- disappointment. Men of
half ycur heart haye through Chriat been
more than conquerors. In the nane of
God, come oat of tha-! The religion of
Christ is just what you want out there
among the empty flur barrels and be
side the clod hearths.
You have never told any one of what
a hard time you have had, but God
knows it as well as you know it. Your
easy times will come after awhile. D)
not let your spirits break down midlife.
What if your coat is thm! R-a fast
enough to keep warm. What if you
have no luxuries on your table? Hiah
expectations will make your blood tingle
better than the best MAdeira. If you
cannot afford to smoke, you can afford
to whistle. But merely animal spirits
are not sufficient; the power of the gos
pel-that is what you want to wrench
despair out of the seul and put you for
ward into the front of the hosts incased
in impenetrable armor.
Again, our subject illustrates what
religion may be u-ider the temptation of
personal attractiveness. Tae mnspired
record says of the heroine of my text,
"She was fair and beautiful." Her very
name signified "a myrtle." Yet the ad
miration and praise and fiattery of the
world did not blight her humility. The
simpliity of her manners and behavior
equaled her extraordinary attractions.
It is the same divine goodness which
puts the tinge on the rose's cheek, and
the whiteness into the lily, and the gleam
on th'e wave, and that puts color in the
cheek, and sparkle in the eye, and ma -
jesty in the forehead, and symmetry
mino the form, and gracefulness into the
gait. But many through the very charm
of their personal appearance have been
destroyed. What simuperings end etetal
tions and impertinencejthaib often been

bTieigt dponicas, anemones and
heliotropes never swagger at the beauty
wich God planted in their very leaf,
sepal, axil and stamen. There are
many flowers that bow down so modest
ly you cannot see the color in their
cheek until you lift up their head, put
ting your haad under their round chin.
Indeed any kind of personal attractions,
whether they be those of the body, the
mind or the heart, may become tempta.
tions to pride and arbitrariness and f.aol
The mythological story of a man who,
seeing himself in a stream, became so
enamored of his appearance that he died
of the eflects illustrates the fatalities un
der which thousands of both sexes have
fallen by the view of their own superiori
ty. Extraordinary capacities cause ex
traordinary temptations. Men who have
good moral health down in the valley,
on the top of the mountain are seizsd of
consumptron. Momrmia, the wife of
Mithrdtes, was strangled with her own
diadem. While the most ot us will not
have the same kind of temptation whiah
Hadassah must have felt from her attrac
tiveness of personal appearance, there
may be some to whom it will be an ad
vantage to hold up the character of the
beautiful captive who sacridiced not her
humility and earnestness of dispoiton to
the world's admiration and latter. The
chief sceret of the beauty of the violet
is that away down in the grass from one
week's end to asother it never mistrusts
that it is a vioiet.
Again, our sul-ject exhibits what reli
gin may be under bad domestic infiu
ences. Hadassah was snatched from the
godly home into which she had been
adopted and introdaced in the absomina
ble associations of which wicked A&hasu
es was the center. What a whirl of
blasphemy and drunkenntss and becen
tiousnesr! No altar, no prayer, no Sab
bath, no Gcd! If this captive girl can
be a Christian there, then it is possible
to be a Christian anywhere. There are
many of the best people of the world
who are obliged to contend with the
most adverse domestic influences, chil
dren who have grown up into the love of
Godunder the frown of parents and un
der the d:scouragement of bad examoie.
Some sister of the family having profess
ed the faith of Jesus is the subject of un
bounded satire inflcted by brother ahd
sisters. Yea, Hadassah was not the
only Chritian who had a queer husband.
It is no easy matter to maintain cor
rect Christian prmnciples when there is a
companien disposed to scoff at them and
to ascrine every imrperfection of charasc.
ter to hypocrisy. What a hard thing for
one member ot the family to rightly keep
the Sabbath when others are disposed
to make it a day of revelry, or to incul
cate propriety of speech in the minds ci
children when there are others to offser
the instructions by loose and profane ut
terancs, or to be regularly in attendance
upon church when there is no more
household work demanded for the Lord's
day than for any secular day. Do 1
speak to any laboring under these dis
advantages? Mv subject is full of en
cragement. Vast responsibilities rest
upon ycu. Be faithful, though you stand
as much alone as did Lot in Sodom, or
Jeremiah in Jerusalem, or Jonah in
Nineveh, or Badassah in the court of
he best when their roots clutch among
he iagged rocks, and you verily have
int poor soil ia which to develop, but
race is a thorcuzh husbandman and can
ase a crop anywhere. Glassware is
nolded over the tie, and in the same
vay yoa are to be fitted as a vessel of
nercy. Tne best timber must have on
saw and gouze ani beetle. The foun
lation stone of yours and every other
iouse came out only under crowbar and
>!ast. F.les and wrenches and ham
ners belong to the church. The Chris
oian victory wAl b- br'ght just in pro
>oriLon as the battle is hot. Never des
pair being a thorough Chrlstian in any
ousehold which is not worse than the
,curt of Ahasuerus.
Finally our subject illustrates what
-eligion may be in high worldly position.
rbe last we see in the Bible of aadissah
[a t*,at she has become the queen of
Persia. Prepare now to see the depar
ure of bec humnility and self sacrifice and
religious principle. As she goes up you
may expect grace to go dawn. It is easier
to be humble in the obscure house of her
adopted father than on a thorne of do
minion. But you misjudge this noble
woman. What she was before she is
ow-'.he myrtle. Applauded for her
neauy and her crown, she forgets not
the cause o0 her suffering people, and
with all simplicity of heart still remains
a worshiper of the God of heaven.
Noble example, fillowed only by a
very few. I address some who, through
the goodness of God, have usen to posi
tions of infiaecca in the community
where you live. In lay, in merchandise,
in medicine, in mechanics and in other
uEfil occupations and professions you
hold an influence for good or for evil.
Let us see whether, like Hadassab, you
can stand elevation. Have yoa as much
simplicity of character as once von Evi
deuced? Da ion feel as much deper.
dence upon God, as much your own
weakness, as much ycut -accuntability
for talents intrusted? Or are you proud
and overdemanding and ungrateful and
unsympathetic and worldly and sensual
and dev1isL? Then you have bcen
spoiitd by your success, and you shall
not sit on this throne with the heroine of
my text. In the day when Hadassah
shall come to the grasder coronation in
the presence of Christ and the bannered
hosts of the redeemed you will be poor
indeed. Oh, there are thousands of
men who can easily endure to be knocked
down of misfortune, who are utterly des
troved if lifted up of success. Satan
takes them to the top of the pinnacle of
the temple and shoves them oft. Their
head begins to whirl, and they lose their
balance, and down they go.
While last autumn all through the for
eats there were luxuriant trees with
maderate outb:anch aad moderate height
pretendmng but little, there were foliage
plants that shot fa: up, looking down
with contempt on the whole forest, clap
ping their hands in the breeze and shout
ing, "Aha, do you not wish you were
as high up as we are?" But last week
a blast let loose fron the north came
rushing along, and graapling the boast
ing oaks hurled tnem to to the around,
and as they went down an old tree that
had been singing palams with the thun
der a hundred summers cried out, "Pride
goeth before destruction and a hauzhty
spirit before a tall." And humble hick
ory and pine and chestnut that had never
said their- prayers before bowed their
heads as much as to say, "Amen."
My friends, "God resisteth the proud,
but giveth grace to humble." Take from
my subject encouragement. Attempt the
service of God whatever your disadvan -
tages, and whatever our lot let us seek
that grace which outshone all the splen
d~rs of the palaces of Shushan..

"Honored Sir: i notice through the
papers that the Act of 1893, known as
the Dispensary Act, h.s been declared
goeo and valid by the Saupre a Court
of this State. You no dount remember
that just previous to the rendition of t
the decision in Mcullough rs. Brown, s
in which the Act of 1892 was declared
unconstitutional, I called a' your o ie t
in obe.ience to a sum mne from you '
and, while there, the situation in Flor
ence was discussed relative to the prof- r
its which, under the law, should be
turned over to this city. I endeavored
then to state to you fully my action rel
ative to the enforcement of the law at
this place, to wit: That we had always
furnished the constables with all the
aid desired by them for their protection
and assistance in the performance of
t'ieir duties here; and that the County
Board of Control, who had kept a snarp
watch over my conduct, had stated to
you by letter that we should receive our
profits as they had made thorough in- b
vestigation of the matter and were sat
isfied that the city authorities had done
what they could to suppress the illicit t
traffic of liquors in this city. You no t
doubt remember stating to me on that
occasion that you would order our
profits turned over to us and desired
our co-operation in the enforcement of
the law. The next day the above de
cision was filed and since then every
thing has been taking its own course
here and elsewhere, and nothing fur
ther has pissed between us concerning
the profits and the enforcement of the
law. Since this law has now received
thesanction of the highest court in the
State it will be necessary for all citizens
to bow to it. To enforce it will be a
difficult task to thcse who have it in
charge and it wiil take no doubt the
combined efforts of the State, county
and city autnorities to give the law the I
effect aimed at, to wit: Absolutely con
fining the sale of whiskey to the Dis
pensaies, but with the co-opt ration of
these it occurs to me that it might be
enforced without friction and without
much expense. My reason for saying
this is as follows: Numbers of the
best people in this city are in sympathy
with the law and will assist in its en- I
forcement if properly treated and will I
aid in the conviction of the parties who I
violate it. I am quite satisfied that if
the State Board of Control will turn
over to us the profits now d".e us, which
we are justly entitled to, and we get
.gqoprtiea-6f the profits hereafter
made, the Illicit traffic in whiskey in
the city of Florence can be suppressed
with the aId of one State Constable.
The reason is that when our best citi
zens find that they will be benefited and3
their taxes lessened by the profits de
rived from this source they will heart
ily join in with the city authorities and
see that this law is properly carried
out and by that means we will all be
beneited. I would like to hear from
you as to whether you do not think
that the vie ws herein expressed reason
able and whether the request made not -
just and proper. Your kind attection.
will be greatly appreciated by
