"A 8oft Toiifruo Breaketh the Ueno" Uli
Text?A Strontr Discourse in "Which One
of the Great Lessons of Lifo Is Strik?
ingly and Concisely Enforced.
Cincinnati. Au-. 2L?I)r. Tahuage,
who is in tiiis city, today discoursed ou
n power which, if it had been used as
extensively us Christ intended it to be
used, would have saved the church and
the world from infinite discord and sor?
row?the power of kindness. His text
was. "A soft tongue breaketh the
bone" (Prov, x.w, 15). Following is
When Solomon said this! he drove a
ivhole volume into one pLbrase. You
of course will riot bo so silly us to take
the words of the text in a literal sense.
They simply mean to set forth the fact
that there is a tremendous power in a
kind word. Although it may seem to
bo very insignificant, its force is inde?
scribable and illimitable. Pungent and
all conquering utterance, *'A soft tongue
breaketh the bone."
If ihc weather were not so hot, and
I had time, 1 would show you kind?
ness as a means of defense; kindness
as a means of usefulness; kindness as a
means of domestic harmony; kindness
as best employed by governments for
the taming and curing of criminals,
and kindness as best adapted for the
settling and adjusting of international
quarrels. But I shall call your atten?
tion only to two of these thoughts.
kindness as a means of defense.
And first 1 speak to you of kindness
as a means of defense. Almost every
man. in the course of his life, r set
upon and assaulted. Your motive ire
misinterpreted or your religious or
political principles are bombarded.
What to do under such, circumstances
is Iii.? question. Tho first impulse of
the natural heart says: "Strike back.
Give as much as he sent. Trip him
into the ditch which he dug fur your
feet. Gash him with as severe a wound
as tli.it wliieh he indicted on your soul.
Shot for shot. Sarcasm for sarcasm.
An eye f?>r an eye. A tooth for a
tooth." But tho better spirit in the
man's soul rises up and says: ?"You
ought to reconsider that matter.'' You
look up into the face of Christ and say:
"Sly Masi.T. how ought I to act under
these difficult circumstances?" And
Christ instantly answers: rBless thorn
that curse you. and pray for them
which despiteful!}' use you.''
Then tho old nature rises up again
and says: "You had bettor not forgive
him until lirst you have chastised him.
, You will never get him hi so tight a
corner again. You will never have
such an opportunity of inflicting the
right kind of punishment upon him
again. First chastise him and then let
him go." "No," says tho better nature:
"hush, thou foul heart. Try tho soft
tongue that breaketh tho bone." Have
you ever in all your lifo known acer?
bity and acrimonious disputo to settle
a quarrel? Did they not always make
matters worse, and worse, aud worse?
Many years ago there was a great
quarrel in the Presbyterian family.
Ministers of Christ were thought ortho?
dox in proportion as they had meas?
ured lances with other clergymen of
the same denomination. The most out?
rageous personalities wore abroad. As
in tho autumn a hunter comes home
with a string of game, partridges and
wild ducks slung over his shoulder,
so there were many ministers who came
back from tho ecclesiastical courts with
long strings of doctors of divinity
whom they had shot with their own
ritte. The division became wider, the
animosity greater, until after awhile
some good men resolved upon another
tack. They began to explain away the
difficulties; they began to forgive each
other s fault, audio! the (groat church
quarrel was settled, and the new school
Presbyterian church aud tho old school
Presbyterian church became one?the
dilToront parts of the Presbyterian or?
der welded by a hammer, a little ham?
mer, a Christian hammer, that the
Scripture calls "a soft tongue."
You have a disputo wich your neigh?
bor. You say to him, "I despise you."
lie replies, "1 can't bear the sight of
you." You say to him, "Never enter
my house again." He says, "If you
come on my door sill I'll kick you off."
You say to him, "I'll put you down."
Ho says to you, "You are mistaken,
I'll put you down." And so the con?
test rages, and year after year you act
the un-Christian part, and he acts the
un-Christian part. After a wliilo the
better spirit seizes you, and one day
you go over to the neighbor and say:
"Give me your hand. We have fought
long enough. Time is so short and
eternity is so near that we cannot af?
ford any longer to quarrel. 1 feel you
have wronged me very much; but let
us settle all now in one great hand?
shaking, and be good friends for all the
rest of our lives." You have risen to a
higher platform than that on which be
foro you stood. You win Iiis admira?
tion, and you get his apology. But if
you have not conquered l?m in that
way at any rate you have Avon the ap?
plause of your own conscience, the high
estimation of good men and the honor
of your Lord, who died for his armed
"what ahe we to do?"
"But." you say, "what are we to do
when danders assault us, and there
come acrimonious sayings all around
about us, and we are abused aud spat
upon?" My reply is: Do not go and
attempt to chase down the slanders,
lies are prolific, and while you are kill?
ing one fifty are born. All your dem?
onstrations of indignation only exhaust
yourself. You might as well on some
summer night, when the swarms of in?
sects are coming up from the meadows
and disturbing you, and disturbing
your family, bring up some great
"swamp angel," like that wliieh thun?
dered over Charleston, and try to shoot
them down. The game is too small
for tho gun.
But what, then, are you to do with
the abuses that come upon you in life?
You are to live them down! I saw a
farmer go out to get back a swarm of
bees that had wandered off from the
hive. As he moved ^unid them they
buzzed around his head, and buzzed
around his hands, land buzzed
around bis feet. If he bad killed one
of them they would have stung him to
death. But ho moved in their midst
in perfect placidity until he had capt?
ured the swarm of wandering bees.
And so I have seen men moving amid
the annoyances, and the vexations, and
the assaults of fife in such calm, Chris?
tian deliberation tba$ all the bm?djrg
tufrmitd atrotrt th?lr soul rnxWunte'dro
notrting. xney conquered them, ana
above all tliey conquered themselves.
"Oh," you say, "that's a very good
theory to preach on a hot day, but it
won't work." It will work. It has
worked. I beliovo it is the last Chris?
tian grace wo win. You know there are
fruits which we gather in June, and
others hi July, and others in August,
and others in September, and still
others in October; and I havetoadmit
that this grace of Christian forgiveness
is about the last fruit of tho Christian
TIIK SOFT TONGUE.
"We hear a great deal about tho bit
tor tongue, and the sarcastic tongue,
and the quick tonguo, and the stinging
tongue, but wo know very littlo about
"the soft tongue that breaketh tho
bone.'-' We road Hudibras and Sterne
and Dean Swift and tho other apostles
of acrimony, but give littlo time to
studying tho example of him who was
reviled, and yet reviled not again. Oh,
that the Lord, by his spirit, would en?
dow us all with "the soft tongue that
breaketh the bone."
I pass now to tho other thought that
I desire to present, and that is, kind-!
ness as a moans of usefulness. In all
communities you find skeptical men.
Through early education, or through
tho maltreatment of professed Christian
people, or through prying curiosity
about tho future world, thero are a
great many people who become skep?
tical in religious things. How shall
you capture them for God ? Sharp ar?
gument and sarcastic retort never won
a single soul from skepticism to the
Christian religion. Whilo powerful
books on tho "Evidences of Christiani?
ty" have their mission in confirming
Christian people in the faith they have
already adopted, I have noticed that
when skeptical people are brought into
tho kingdom of Christ it is through the
charm of some genial soul, and not by
argument at all.
Men are not saved through the head;
they are saved through tho heart. A
storm comes our of its biding place. It
says, "Now we'll just rouse up all this
sea," and it makes a great bluster, but
it does not succeed. Part of the sea is
roused up?perhaps one-half of it or
one-fourth of if. After a while the
calm moon, placid and beautiful, looks
down, and tho ocean begins to rise. It
comes up to high-water mark. It em?
braces tlio great headlands. It sub?
merges the beaches of all the conti?
nents. It is the heart throb of one
world against the heart throb of an?
other world. And 1 have to tell you that
while all your storms of ridicule and
storms of sarcasm may rouse up the
passion of an immortal nature, nothing
loss than the attractive power of Cliris
tian kindness can ever raise tho death?
less spirit to happiness and to God. I
have more faith in the prayer of a child
five years old, in the way of bringing
an infidel back to Christ and to heaven,
than I have in all the hissing thunder?
bolts of ecclesiastical controversy.
You cannot overcome men with re?
ligious argumentation. If you come
at a skeptical man with an argument
on behalf of the Christian religion you
put the mau on his mottle, fie says:
"1 soo that man has a carbine. Til use
my carbine. I ll answer his argument
with my argument." Put if you come
to that man persuading him that you
desire his happiness on earth and his
eternal welfare in the world to come
he cannot answer it.
MI MICKY WILL NOT SAVE THEM.
What 1 have said is just as true in
the reclamation of the openly vicious.
Did you ever know a drunkard to be
saved through the caricature of a
drunkard.' Your mimicry of tho stag?
gering stop, and the thick tongue, and
tho disgusting hiccough, only worsf
maddens his brain. But if you come
to him in kindness and sympathy: if
you show him that you appreciate the
awful grip of a depraved appetite; if
you persuade him of the fact that thou?
sands who had the grappling hooks of
evil inclination clutched in their soul
as firmly as in l.is have boon delivered,
then a ray of light will flash across his
vision, and it will seoni as if a supernat?
ural hand were steadying his staggering
A good many years ago there lay in
the streets a man dead drunk, Ins face
exposed to the blistering noonday sun.
A Christian woman passed aloug. looked
a<; him, and said, "Poor fellow!" She
took her handkerchief and spread it
over his face and pa.ssed on. The man
roused himself up from his debauch,
and began to look at the handker?
chief, aud lo! on it was the name of a
highly respectable Christian woman of
tlie city. He wont to her; lie thanked
her for her kindness; and that one
little deed saved him for this life, and
saved him for the life that is to come.
Ho was afn^-ward attorney general of
the United States; but, higher than all,
he became the consecrated disciple of
Kind words are so cheap it is a won?
der we do not use them offener. There
are tens of thousands of people who
are dying ' for the lack of one kind
word. There is a business man who
has fought against trouble until he is
perfectly exhausted. He has been think?
ing about forgery, about robben*, about
suicide. Go to that business man. Tell
aim that better times are coming, and
tell him that you yourself were in a
tight business pass, and the Lord de?
livered you. Tell him to put his trust
in God. Tell him that Jesus Christ
stands beside every business man in Iiis
perplexities. Tell ln'm of the sweet
promises of God's comforting grace.
That man is dying for the lack of J
just one kind word. Go to-morrow
and offer that one saving, omnipotent
kind word. Here is a soul that has
been swamped' in sin. He wants to
Bnd the light of the gospel. Ho feels
like a shipwrecked mariner looking out
over the beach, watching for a sail
against the sky. Oh, bear down on
him. Tell him that the Lord waits to
be gracious to him, and though he has
been a great sinner there is a great
Saviour provided. Tell him that
though his sins are as scrrlot they shall
be as snow; though they are red like
crimson they shall be as wool. That
j man is dying forever for the lack of one
KIND WORDS NEVER DIE.
There used to be sung at a great
many of the pianos all through the
country a song that has almost died
out. I wish somebody would start it
again in our social circles. There may
not have been very exquisite art in the
music, but there was a grand and
Kind words never die, never die;
Cherished and blessed.
O that we might in our families and
in our churches try the force of kind?
ness. You can never drive men, wom
, fen dr. children into ffee kingdom of
moro honeysuckles than frctfulness and
scolding will bring out Cliristian grace.
I wish that in all our religious work we
might be saturated with the spirit oi
kindness. Missing that, wo miss a great
deal of usefulness. There is no need
of coining out before men and thundor
i ing to them tho law unless at the same
time you preach to them the gospel.
Do you not know that this sitnplo story
of a Saviour's kindness is to redeem all

Tlicro is in Antwerp, Belgium, one
of tho most remarkable pictures I ever
saw. It is "The Descent of Christ
from the Cross." It Ls one of Rubens'
pictures. No man enn stand and look
at that descent from tho cross,
Rubens pictured it, without having his
eyes flooded with tears, if ho have any
sensibility at all. It is an overmaster?
ing picture?one that stuns you and
staggers you and haunts your dreams.
One afternoon a man stood in that
cathedral looking at Rubens' "Descent
of Christ from tho Cross." Ho was
all absorbed in that scene of
Saviour's sufferings when tho janitor j
canio in and said: "It is tkuo to!
closo up tho cathedral for tho night.
I wish you would depart." Tho pil?
grim, looking at that "Descent of
Clirist from tho Cross," turned
around to the janitor and said: "No,
no; not yet. Wait until they get him
Oh, it is the story of a Saviour's suf?
fering kindness that is to capture the
world. When the; bones of that great
Behemoth <>f iniquity which has
trampled all nations shall be broken
and shattered it will be found out that
the work was not done by the hammer
of the iconoclast, or by tJie sword of
the conqueror, or by the torch of per?
secution, but by tho plain, simple,
overwhelming force ol '-[ho soft tongue
