Contagious blood poison is absolutely
beyond the skill of the doctors. They
may dose a patient for years on their
mercurial and potash remedies, but he
will never be rid of the disease ; on the
other hand, his condition will grow
steadily worse. S. S. S. is the only cure
for this terrible affliction, because it is
the only remedy which goes direct to
the cause of the disease and forces it
from the system.

Dlt. TAUIAGE'S SERMON.
Bird Used to Cure the Leper as- Re
corded in the Cld Testament.
Symbolic of the Soil's Flight to Its Home
Abuvf Clt-:nf (I mid IVepanil the
fcuul May Soar Upward an liiU
the Turtle Dove.
From a scene of old Dr. Talmajjo, in
this sermon, proi.ents the old tlospel
under another phase. Text: Leviticus
"And the priest shall command that
one of the birds be killed in an earth
en vessel, over running water. As for
the living bird, he shall take it, and
the cedar wood, and the scarlet, and
the hyssop, and shall dip them and the
living bird in the blood of the bird
that was killed over the running water;
and he shall sprinkle upon him that is
to be cleased from the leprosy seven
times, and shall pronounce him clean
and shall let the living bird loose into
the open field."
The Old Testament, to very many
people, is a great slaughter house
strew n with the blood, and I ones, and
horns, and hoofs of butchered ani
mals. It offends their sight; it dis
gusts their taste; it actually nauseates
the stomach. But to the intelligent
Christian the Old Testament is a mag
nificent corridor through which Jl'sus
advances. As lie appears at the other
end of the corridor we can only see the
outlines of Ilis character; coming near
er we can de. cry Ilis features. But
when, at last, He steps upon the plat
form of the New Testament, amid the
torches of evangelists and apostles,
the orchestras of Heaven announce
Him with a blast of minstrelsy that
wakes up Bethlehem at midnight
There were a reat many cages of
birds brought down to Jcsuaalem for
sacrifice st arrows, anil pigeons, and
turtle doves. I can luar them now,
whistling, caroling and singing all
around about the temple. When a
leper was to be cured of his leprosy, in
order to hU cleansing two of these
birds were taken; one of them was
slain over an earthen vess3l of run
ning water that is clear, fresh water,
and then the bird was killed. Another
bird was then taken, tied to a hyssop
branch and plunged by the priest into
the blood of the first bird; and then
with this hyssop branch, bird-tipped,
the priest would sprinkle the leper
seven times, thi untie the bird from
the hytsop branch and it would go
soaring into the heavens.
Now, open your e-cs wide, my dear
brethren and sisters, and see that the
fix-st bird meant Jesus, and that the
second bird means your own soul.
There is nothing more suggestive
than a caged bird. In the down of its
breast 3-ou can see the glow of south
ern climes; in the sparkle of its eye
you can see the flash of distant seas;
in its voice you can hear the song it
learned in the wildwood. It is a
child of the sky in captivity.
No.v the dear bird of my text,
captured from the air, suggests the
Lord Jesus, who came down from the
realms of light and glory. He once
stood in the sunlight of Heaven. He
was the favorite of the land. He was
the king's son. Whenever a victory
was gained or a throne set up, he was
the first to hear it He could not walk
incognito along the streets, for all
Heaven knew him. For eternal ages
he had dwelt amid the mighty popula
tions of Heaven. No holiday had ever
dawned on the city when he was ab
sent. He was not like an earthly
prince, occasionally issuing from a
ralace heralded by a troop of clanking
horse-guards. No; he was greeted
everywhere as a brother, and all Heav
en was perfectly at home with him.
But one day there came word to the
palace that an insigniCcant island
was in rebellion, and was cutting
itself to pieces with anarchy. I hear
an angel say: "Let it perish. The
King's realm is vast enough without
the island. The tributes to the King
are large enough without that We can
spare." Not so," said the Prince, the
King's son; and I see Him push out
one day, under the protest of great
company. He starts straight for the
rebellious island. He lands amid
the execrations of its inhabitants,
that grow in violence uutil the
malice of earth had smitten Him, and
the spirits of the lost world put their
black wings over His dying head and
shut the sun out The hawks and vul
tures swooped upon this dove of my
text, until head, and brea-t, and feet
ran blood until, under the flocks and
beaks of darkness, the poor thing per
ished. No wonder it was a bird that
was taken and slain over an earthen
vessel of running water. It was a
child of the skies. It typified Him
who came down from Heaven in ag
ony and blood to save our souls.
Blessed be His glorious name forever!
I notice also in ray text, that the
bird that was slain was a clean bird.
The text demanded that it should be.
The raven was never sacrificed, nor
the cormorant, nor the vulture. It
must be a clean bird, says the text,
and it suggests the pure Jesus the
holy Jesus. Although He spent His
boyhood in the worst village on earth,
although blasphemies were poured in
to His ear enough to have poisoned
any one else. He stands before the
world a perfect Christ Herod
was cruel, Uenrv vin. was un
clean, but point out a fault of our
King. Answer me, ye boys who knew
Him on the streets of Nazareth. An
swer me, ye miscreants who saw Him
die. The skeptical tailors have tried
for 1,800 years to find out one hole in
this seamless garment, but they have
not found it The most ingenious and
eloquent infidel of this day, in the last
line of his book, all of which denounces
Christ, says: "All ages must proclaim
that among the sons of men there is
none greater than Jesus." So let this
bird of the text be clean its feet
fragrant with the dew that it pressed,
its beak carrying sprig of thyme and
frankincense, its feathers washed in
showers. O thou spotless Son of God,
impress with Thy innocence!
'Thou lovely source of true delight,
Whom I, unseen, adore.
Unrtl Thy beauties to my sight,
That I may love Theo mora"
I remark, also, in regard to this first
bird, mentioned in the text, that it
was a defenseless bird. When the
eagle is assaulted with its iron beak
it strikes like a bolt against its adver
sary. This was a dove or a sparrow;
we do not know just which. Take
the dove or pigeon in your band,
and the pecking of its beak on your
liana makes you laugn at tne
foebleness of its assault The
reindeer, after it is down, may fell
you with its antlers. The ox, after you
think it is dead, may break your leg in
its death, struggle. The harpooned
whale, in its' last agony, may crash
you in the coll of the unwinding rope
But this was a dove or a hpni-row per
fectly harmless, perfectly defenseless
type of Him who said: "I have trod
the wine press alone, and there
was none to help." None to help!
The murderers have it all their
own way. M Here was tne sol
dier in the Roman regiment who
swung his sword in the defense of the
Divine Martyr? Did they put one drop
of oil on His ga.shed feet? Was there
one in all that crowd manly and gener
ous enough to stand up for him? Were
the miscreants at the cross any more
interfered with in their work of spik
ing Ilim fast than the carpenter in his
shop driving a nail through a pine
board. The women cried, but there
was no balm in their tears. None to
help! None to help! O, my Lord
Jesus, none to help! The wave of
anguish came up to the arch
of His feet came up to His
knee floated to His waist rose to His
chin swept to his temples 3-et none
to help! Ten thousand times ten thou
sand angels in the sky, ready at com
mand to plunge into the bloody af
fray, and strike back the hosts of dark
ness, yet none to help, none to help!
Oh, this dove of the text, in this last
moment, clutched not with angry tal
ons. It plunged not a savage beak. It
was a dove helpless, defenseless.
None to help! none to help!
As, after a severe storm in the morn
ing you go out and And birds dead on
the ground, so this dead bird of the
tex makes me think-of that awful
storm that swept the earth on cruci
fixion day, when the wrath of God.
and the malice of man, and the fury of
devils wrestled beneath the three
crosses. As we sang just now
"Well might the sua In d rknesj hide
And shut his glories in.
When Christ, tho mighty Maker, died
For man, the creature's sin."
But I come now to speak of this sec
ond bird of the text. We must not let
that fly away until wc have examined
it. The priest took the second bird,
tied it to the hyssop branch,
and then plunged it in thu blood
of the first bird. Ah! that is ray
soul, plunged for cleansing in the
Savior s blood. There is not enough wa
ter in the Atlantic and Pacific oceans
to wash away our smallest sin. Sin is
such an outrage on God's universe
that nothing but blood can atone for
it You know that life is in the blood,
and as the life had been forfeited,
nothing could buy it back but blood.
What was it that was sprinkled on the
doorposts when the destroying angel
went through the land? Blood. What
was it that went streaming from the
altar of ancient sacrifice? Blood. What
was it that the priest carried into the
holy of holies, making intercession for
the people? Blood. What was it that
Jesus sweat in the Garden of Geth
semane? Great drops of blood. What
does the wine in the sacramental cup
signify? Blood. What makes the
robes of the righteous in Heaven so
fair? They are washed in the blood
of the Lamb. What is it that cleanses
all our pollution? The blood of Jesus
Christ, that cleanse th from all sin.
I hear somebody saying: "I do not
like such a sanguinary religion as
that" Do you think it is very wise
for the patient to tell the doctor, "I
do not like the medicine you have
iven me!" If he wants to be cured he
had better take the medicine. My
Lord God has offered us a balm, and
it is very foolish for us to say, "I
don't like that balm." We had bet
ter take it, and be saved. But ou do
not oppose the shedding of blood
In other directions and for other
ends. If a hundred thousand men go
out to battle for their country, and
have to lay down their lives for free
institutions, is there anything ignoble
about that? No, you say; "glorious
sacrifice, rather," And is there any
thing ignoble in the idea that the Lord
Jesus Christ, by the shedding of His
blood, delivered not only one laud, but
all lands and all ages, from bondages,
introducing men by millions and mil
lions into the liberty of the sons of
God? Is there anything ignoble about
As this second bird of the text was
plunged in the blood of the first bird,
so we must be washed in the blood of
Christ, or go polluted forever.
"Let the water and the blood.
From thy side a healing flood.
Be of sin the double cure.
Save from wrath, and make me pure,"
I notice now that as soon as this sec
ond bird was dipped in the blood of
the first bird the priest unloosened it
and it was free free of wing and free
of foot. It could whet Its beak on any
tree branch it chose. It could peck
the grapes of any vineyard it chose. It
was free; a type of our souls after wc
have washed in the blood of the Lamb.
We can go where we will and do what
we will. You say: "Had you not bet
ter qualify that?" No; for I remem
ber that in conversation the will is
changed, and the man will not will
that which is wrong. There is no
strait-jacket in our religion. A state
of sin is a state of slavery. A state of
pardon is a state of emancipation.
The hammer of God's grace knocks the
hopples from the wrist, opens the door
into a landscape all ashimmer with
fountains and tibloom with gardens.
It is freedom.
If a man has become a Christian he
is no more afraid of Sinai. The thun
ders of Sinai do not frighten him.
You have, on some August day, seen
two thunder showers meet One cloud

that mountain, coming nearer and

the clouds break and the tor
rents pour, and they arc emptied
perhaps into the very same stream

Here 1 see a beggar going along the
turnpike road. He is worn out with
disease. lie is stiff in his joints. He
is ulcered all over. He has rheum in
his eyes. He is sick and wasted. He
is in rags. Every time he puts down
his swollen feet he cries: "Oh, the
pain!" He sees a fountain by tho
roadside under a tree, and he crawls
up to that fountain aud says: "I
must wash. Here I may cool my ul
cers. Here I may jret rested." Ho
stoops down, and scoops up in the
palm of his hands enough water to
slake his thirst; and that is all gone.
Then he stoops down and begins to
wash his eyes; and the rheum is all
gone. Then he puts in his swollen
feet, and the swelling is gone. Then,
willing no longer to be only half cured,
he plunges in and his whole body is
laved in the stream, and he gets upon
the bank well. Meantime the owner
of the mansion up yonder comes
down, walking through the ravine
with his only son, and he sses tho
bundle of rags, and. asks: "Whose
rags are these?' A voice from
the fountain says: "Those are my
rags." Then says the master to his
son: "Go up to the house and get the
best new suit you can find and bring
it down." And he brings down tho
clothes, and the beggar is clothed in
them, and he looks around and says:
"I was filthy, but now I am clean. I
was ragged, but now I am robed. I
was blind, but now I see. Glory ba to
the owner of that mansion: and jrlory
be to that son who brought me that
suit of clothes; and glory be to this
fountain, where I have washed, and
where all who will inay wash and be
clean!' Where sin abounded, grace
doth much more abound. The bird has
been dipped now, let it fly away.
The next thing I noticed about this
bird, when it was loosened (and this is
the main idea), is, that it fkw away.
Which way did it go? When you let a
bird loose from j-our grasp, which way
does it fly? Up. What are wings for?
To Ay with. Is there anything in the
suggestion of the direction taken by
that bird to indicate which way wo
ought to go?
"Rise, my soul, and stretch thy wlnss,
Thy better portion trace:
Rise from transitory things
To Heaven, thy native place."
Wo should be going Heavenward.
That is the suggestion. Hut I know
that we have a great many drawbacks.
You had them this morning perhaps.
You had them yesterday, or the day
before; and although you waut to be
going Heavenward, you are constantly
discouraged. But I suppose when that
bird went out of the priest's hands id
went by inflections sometime stoop
ing. A bird docs not shoot directly
up, but this is the motion of a bird.
So the soul soars toward God, rising
up in love, and sometimes depressed by
trial. It doos not always go in the
direotion it would like to. Hut the
main course is right. There is one
passage in the Bible which I quote
oftener to myself than any other: "He
knowcth our frame, and He remcin
bereth that we are dust."
