DISCOURSE APPROPRIATE FOR THE
PRESENT HOLIDAY SEASON.
Subject Is thm Nativity How C5ol Hon
ored Childhood Motherhood for All
Time Consecrated by the Scene lu the
Humble Stable at lU-tlilehew.
(Copyright. 1D01. Louis Klopsch. N. Y.)
Washington, Dec. 22. This discourse
cf Dr. Talinago is full of the nativity
and appropriate for the holidays; text,
Luke iL, 16, "And they came with haste
and found Mary and Joseph, and the
babe lying in a manger."
The Mack window shutters of a De
cember night were thrown open and
some of the best singers of a world
where they all sing stood there, and
putting back the drapery of cloud
chanted a peace anthem until all the
echoes of hill and valley applauded
and encored the halleluiah chorus.
Come, let us go into that Christmas
scene as though we had never before
worshiped at tbe manger. Here is a
Madonna worth looking at. I wonder
not that the most frequent name in
all lands and in all Christian centuries
is Mary. And there are Marys in pal
aces and Marys in cabins, and, though
German and French and Italian and
Spanish and English pronounce it dif
ferently, they are all namesakes of the
one whom we lind on a bed of straw,
with her pale face agunst the soft
cheek of Christ in the night of tbe
nativity. AH the great painters have
tried, on canvas, to present Mary and
her child and the incidents or" that
most famous night In the world's his
tory. Raphael, in three different mas
terpieces, celebrated them. Tintoretto
and Ghirlandajo surpassed themselves
in the adoration of the magL Correg
gio needed to do no more than his Ma
donna to become immortal. The "Ma
donna of the Lily." by Leonardo da
Vinci, will kindle the admiration of
all ages. But all the galleries of Dres
den are forgotten when I think of the
Email rcom of that gallery containing
the "Sistine Madonna." Yet all of them
were copies of St. Matthew's Madon
na and Luke's Madonna, the inspired
Madonna of tbe oM book, which we
had put into our harnte when we were
infants and that we hope to have under
01 r heads when we die.
Behold, in me first place, that on the
tight of ChrL-t'ti life Cod honored the
brute creation. You cannot go into
that IVthlehem bain without going
past the camels, the mules, the dops.
the oxen. The brutes of that stable
heard the first cry of the infant Iord.
Some of the old painters represent the
oxen and camels kneeling that night
before the new-born babe. And well
might they 1ih1! Have you ever
thought that Cht ist came, among other
things, to alleviate the sufferings of
the brute creation? Was it not appro
priate that he should, during the first
few days and nights of his life on
earth, be surrounded by the dumb
beasts, who-e moan and plaint and
bellowing have for agts been a prayer
to Cod for the ane.-tiu of their tor
turrs and the liiihtin; oi their wrongs?
Xct a k' jsr.cl iii all the centuries, not
a bird's nest, not a worn-out horso on
towpath. nor a herd freezing in the
pooily built cowpen. not a freint car
in sumin r time bring tbe beeves to
mavkt-t without water through a thou
sand miies of agony, not a surgeon's
room witnessing the struggles of fox
or rabbit or pis. con ;r ioj in V. hor
rors of vivisection, but has an interest
in the fact that Christ was born in
a stable surrounded by brutes.
Standing thtn, a.s I imagine now I
to, in that llttlilchcm nijiht with an
Infant Christ on one side and the
speechless creatures of Cod on the
other, I cry: Look out how you strike
the rowel into that horse's side; take
off that curbed bit from that bleeding
mouth; remove that saddle from that
raw back; shoot not for fun that bird
that is too small for food; forget not
to put water into the cage of that
ranary; throw out some crumbs to
those birds caught too far north in
the winter's inclemency; arrest that
man who is making that one horse
draw a load heavy enough for three;
rash in upon that scene where boys
are torturing a cat or transfixing a
butterily and grasshopper; drive not
off that old robin, for her nest is a
mother's cradle and under her wing
there may be three or four musicians
of the sky in training. In your fami
lies and in your schools teach the com
ing generation more mercy than the
present generation has ever shown
and in this marvelous Hible picture of
the nativity, while you point out to
them the angel, show them also the
camel, and while they hear the celes
tial chant let them also hear the cow's
Behold also in this liib'e scene how
on that Christmas night Cod honored
childhood. Childhood was to be hon
ored by that advent, lie must have a
child's light limbos and a child's cam
pled hand and a child's beaming eye
and a child's Haxen hair, and babyhood
was to be honored for all time to come,
and a cradle was to mean more than a
grave. Mighty God. may the reflec
tion of that one child's face be seen in
all infantile faces!
Enough have all these fathers and
mothers on hand If they have a child
in the house. A throne, a crowd, a
scepter, a kingdom, under charge. lie
careful how you strike him across the
head, jarring the brain. What you
say to him will be centennial and mil
lennial, and a hundred years and a
thousand years will not stop the echo
and re-echo. Do not say, "it is only
a child." Rather say, "It Is only an
Immortal." It is only a masterpi,;e. of
Jehovah. It i3 only a being that shall
outlive sun and moon and star and
ages quadrlennial. God has infinite re
sources, and he can give presents of
great value, but when he wants to
give tho richest possible gift to a
household he looks around all the
worlds and all tho universe and then
gives a child. Yea. In all ages God
has honored childhood. He makes al
most every picture a failure unless
there be a child cither playing on the
floor or looking through the window
or Heated on the lap gazing into the
face of the mother.
It was a child in Naaman's kitchen
that told the great Syrian warrior
where he might go and get cured of
the leprosy, which at his seventh
plunge in the Jordan was left at the
bottom of the river. It was to the
cradle of leaves in which a child was
laid, rocked by the Nile, that Cod
called the attention of history. It was
a sick child that evoked Christ's cura
tive sympathies. It was a child that
Christ set in the midst of the squab
bling disciples to teach the lesson of
A child decided Waterloo, showing
the army of Hlucher how they could
take a short cut through the fields
when if the old road had been followed
the Prussian general would have come
up too late to save the destinies of
Europe. It was a child that decided
Gettysburg, he having overheard two
Confederate generals in a conversation
in which they decided to march for
Gettysburg instead of Harrisburg. and.
this reported to Governor Curtin. the
Federal forces started to meet their
opponents at Gettysburg. And to-day
the child is to decide all the great
battles, make all the laws, settle all
the destinies and usher in the world's
salvation or destruction. Men, women,
nations, all earth and all heaven, be
hold the child!
Notice also that in this Hible night
scene God honored science. Who are
the three wise men kneeling before the
Divine Infant? Not boor, not igno
ramuses, but Caspar, Haltha?ar and
Melchior, men who knew all that was
to be known. They were the Isaac
Newtons and Herschels and Faradays
of their time. Their alchemy was the
forerunner of öur sublime chemistry,
their astrology the mother of our mag
nificent astronomy. And when I see
these scientists bowing before the
beautiful babe I see the prophecy of
the time when all the telesopes and
microscopes and all the Heyden jars
and all the electric batteries and all
the observatories and all the univer
sities shali bow to Jesus. It is much
that way already. Where is the college
that does net have morning prayers,
thus bowing at the manger? Who have
been the greatest physicians? Omit
ting the names of the living lest we
should be invidious, have we not had
among them Christian men like James
Y. Simpson and f?ush and Valentine
Mott and Ab?rcronibie and Abernethy?
Who have been our greatest scientists?
Joseph Henry, who lived and (lied in
the faith of tho gospels, and Agassiz.
who. standing with his students among
the hills, took off his hat and said.
"Young gentlemen, before we study
these rocks let us pray for wisdom to
the God who made the rocks." All
geology will yet bow before the Rock
of Ages. All botany will yet worship
the Rose of Sharon. All astronomy
will yet reccguize the Star of Rethle
hem. Heboid also that on that Christmas
night God honored motherhood. Two
angels on their wings might have
bi ought au infant Savior to Hethle
hem without Mary's being there at
all. When the villagers on the morn
ing of December 2f awoke, by divine
arrangement and in some unexpected
way the child Jesu.- misM have been
found in some comfortable cradle of
the village. Hut no, no! Motherhood
for all time was to Ik' consecrated, and
oiif of the tenderest relations was- to
be the maternal relation and one of the
sweetest wor.te "mother." In all a.",c.j
Goti has honored good motherhood.
John Wcsb y had a good mother. St.
i; rnard had a good mother, Samu-d
HiKlSoTt a pood mother, Walter Scott
a good mother, Üeiijaniin West a
good mother. In a great audience,
most of whom were Chi teti m-?, I asked
that all those who had been blessed
of Christian mothers arbe, and almost
the entire assembly stood up. Do you
not see bow Important it is that all
motherhood be consecrated? Why did
Titian, the Italian artist, when he
sketched the Madonna make it an
Italian face? Why did Rubens, the
German artist, in Iiis Madonna make it
a German face? Why did Joshua Rey
nolds, the English artist, in his Ma
donna make it an English face? Yv'hy
did Murillo. the Spanish artist, in
his Madonna make it a Spanish face?
I never heard, but I think they took
their own mothers as the type of
Mary, the mother of Chri t.
The first word a child utters is apt
to be "Mother!" and the old man in
his dying dream calls, "Mother, moth
er!" It matters not whether she wa3
brought up in the surroundings of a
city and in an allluent home and was
dressed appropriately with reference
to the demands of modern life or
whether she wore the old time cap
and great round spectacles and apron
of her own make and knit your socks
with her own needles seated by the
broad fireplace, with great backlog
ablaze, on a winter's night; it mat
ters not how many wrinkles crossed
and recrossed her face or how much
her shoulders stooped with the bur
dens of a long life, if you painted a
Madonna hers wcu!d be the face. What
a gentle hand she had when we were
sick and what a voice to soothe pain,
and was there any one who could so
fill up a room with peace and purity
and light? And what a sad day that
was when we came home and she could
greet us not. for her lips were for
ever Still. Come back, mother. In
these Christmas times and take your
old place and as ten or twenty or fifty
years ago come and open the old Hi
ble as you used to, read and kneel in
the same place where yen used to pray
and look upon us as of old when yo;
wished us a merry Christmas or a
happy New Year. Rut no! That would
not be fair to call you back. You had
troubles enough and aches enough and
bereavements enough while you were
here. Tarry by the throne, mother,
till we join you there, prayers all an
swered, and In the eternal homestead
of our God we shall again keep Christ
mas jubilee together. Hut speak from
your thrones, all you glorified mothers,
and say to all these, your sons and
daughters, words of love, words of
warning, words of cheer. They need
your voice, for they have traveled fir
and with many a heartbreak since
you left them, and you do well to call
from the heights of heaven to the val
leys of earth. Hail, enthroned ances
try! We are coming. Keep a place
ri?ht beside you at the banquet.
Slow footed years! More swiftly run
Into the gold of that unsetting sun.
Homesick we are for thee,
Cnlm land beyond the sea.
Hehold also in that first Chlstmas
night that God honored the fields.
Come in, shepherd boys, to Bethlehem,
and see the child. "No," they say;
we are not dressed good enough to
come in." "Yes, you are. Come in."
Sure enough, the storms and the night
dew and the brambles have made rough
work with their apparel, but none has
a better right to come in. They were
the first to hear the music of that
Christmas night. The first announce
ment of a Savior's birth was made to
those men in the fields. There were
wiseacres that night in Bethlehem and
Jerusalem snoring in deep sleep, and
there were salaried officers of govern
ment who, hearing of It afterward,
may have thought that they ought to
have had the first news of such a great
event, some one dismounting from a
swift camel at their door and knock
ing till at some sentinel's question,
"Who comes there?" the great ones of
the palace might have been told of the
celestial arrival. No; the shepherds
heard the first two bars of the music,
the first in the major key and the last
in the subdued minor, "Glory to God
in the highest and on earth peace,
good will to men.' Ah, yes, the fields
The old shepherds, with plaid and
crook, have for the most part van
ished, but we have grazing on our
United States pasture fields and prairie
about 42.000.000 sheep, and all their
keepers ought to follow the shepherds
of my text and all those who toil in
fields all vine dressers, all orchard
ists. all husbandmen. Not only that
Christmas night, but all up and down
the world's history. God has been hon
oring the fields. Nearly all the mos
sia'ns of reform and literature and elo
quence and law and benevolence have
come from the fields. Washington from
the fields. Jefferson from the fields.
The presidential martyrs, Garfield and
Lincoln and McKinley, from the fields.
Henry Clay from the fields. Daniel
Webster from the fields. Martin Lu
ther from the fields. Before this world
is right the overflowing populations of
our crowded cities will have to take to
the fields. Instead of ten merchants
In rivalry as to who shall sell that one
apple we want at least eight of them
to go out and raise apples. Instead
of t?n merchants desiring to sell that
one bushel of wheat we want at least
eight of them to go out and raise
wheat. The world wants now more
hard hands, more bronzed cheeks, more
muscular arms. To the fields! God
honored them when- he woke up the
shepherd? by the midnight anthem,
and he will while the world lasts con
tinue to honor the fields. When the
shepherd's crook was that famous
night stood against the wall of the
Bethlehem khan, it was a prophecy of
the time when thrasher's flail and
farmer's plow and woodman's ax and
ox's yoke and sheaf binder's rake shall
surrender to the God who made the
country as man made the town.
OATHS IN LAST CENTURY.
Corning Done ill tltt liar and nu the
The early part of the nineteenth cen
tury was the age of heavy drinking
and bad language. Gentlemen swore
at each other In-caus' an oath added
emphasis to their assertions. They
swore at inferiors because their com
mands would not otherwise receive
'prompt obedience. The. chaplain
cursed the sailors because it made
them listen more attentively to his ;d
monitions. Indies swore, orally and
in their letters. Lord Rraxiield, a
famous Scotch judge, ol'i'ered to a lady
at whom he swore boo-iusr; slit- played
badly at whist the btnlicient apology
that l'.e had mistaken her for his wife.
Hrskine swore at the bar, and Lord
Thurlow swore at the bench. George
IV. was always swearing; a profane
oath always accompanied this Defend
er of the Faith's expression of ap
proval of the weather, a horse, a din
ner, or a drinking bout. His accom
plished brothers envied his powers in
this field of endeavor, and copied his
example. "Society clothed itself with
cursing as with a garment." Vauxhail,
then still a fashionable resort, must
have been a delectable place, with its
feast of curse words and How of oaths.
Other amusements were bu'.l baiting,
cock-fighting and prize-fighting. Wil
berforce and Sheridan supported a bill
in 1S02 to abolish bull baiting, which
was opposed by Mr. Windham, on the
ground that it was "the first result of
a conspiracy of the Jacobins and
Methodists to render the people grave
and serious." London Daily News.
The interest aroused by the efforts
of Judge O'Neill to bring Aguinaldo
before the Supreme court on a writ
of habeas corpus has resulted in many
queries as to who is the custodi n of
the prisoners. Inquiries at headquar
ters brought forth the following in
formation: Lieutenant Bridges Is known as the
custodian of Aguinaldo. He is on
detached duty, ast-igned to that serv
ice, and has charge of the person of
the prisoner, being responsible for his
safekeeping. In the performance of
bis duty he takes orders from General
Guarding the premises which are

Two miles from Caribou, Me., on

and thus creating a great lake. Trees
a foot in diameter have been cut
down by the beavers, the branches
trimmed off, and tho trunks in some
mysterious manner brought to the
dam and submerged. The item Is bet

HADLEY AS A BOY.

It is said of President Arthur T.
Iladley of Yale that as a boy and youth
he was not only very peculiar but a
keen disappointment to his parents.
He was eccentric and apparently quite
without promise. One of the guests at
the recent bicentennial celebtation at

"When Hadley was 10 years old his
mother took him to New York, where
she met one of her girlhood friends,
then also engrossed with family cares.
