time, falling to the sidewalt. Sheriff D.
M. Wilson came running to the scene when

school building In South Washington,
was shot and killed by her husband
Oswald C. Allen, about three o'clock yes
terday afternoon. Allen then turned- his
pistol and killed himself. "There had
been some difficulty between . the pair,
and they have not lived together for some
time. The tragedy occurred in the school
building. Allen hired a cab on Pennsyl
vania avenue and told the driver to take
him to the Jefferson building. Upon ar
riving there he alighted and "told
tho driver to wait until he wanted
him. Then he walked np tho stone
steps and passed through the -hall

where his wife was engaged as teacher.
He showed himself to her and beckoned
her to the door. She came toward him.
As she reached the threshold of the cloak
room he drew a pistol and shot her in the
left temple. Then, turning the pistol, he
shot himself through the right temple.
Both fell to the floor of the cloak-room.
The children in the school-room, who had
witnessed the frightful scene, rushed
from the room ia a panic and spread the
alarm. Lieutenant Vernon and two po
licemen soon arrived on the scene. The
woman was foand to be still alive. She
was removed to the school-room, and

Leach, who were called, made an exami
nation and dressed the wound, which,
however, was pronounced fatal.

frightened teachers and children, whi4e
outside an immense throng blocked the

had turned in an alarm of fire, and tha
gathering crowd was augmented when
the engines arrived. The remains of

but Mrs. Allen was left on a couch tem
porarily prepared in one corner of tlw
school-room. A short time before 6he
had been cheerily talking to the pupils.

Rev. T. De Witt Talmage delivered the
following sermon in the Brooklyn Taber
nacle, taking for his text:
So they poured out for the men to eat. And
It came to pass, as they were eating of the pot
tage, that they cried out and said: O, thou
man of God, there is death in the pot. And
they could not eat thereof. I Kings, iv.. 40.
Elisha had gone down to lecture to the
students in the theological seminary at
QilgaL He found tha students very hun
gry, as students are apt to be. It is very
seldom the world makes large provision
for those who give themselves to intel
lectual toil. In order that these students
may be prepared to hear what Elisha says,
he first feeds their hunger. He knew
very well it is useless to talk, to preach,
to lecture with hungry men. So Elisha,
recognizing this common-sense princi
ple, which every Christian ought to rec
ognize, sends servants out to get food
for these hungry students. They pick up
some good, healthful herbs, but they
happen to pick up also some coloquin
tida, a bitter, poisonous, deathfnl herb.
They bring all these herbs; thjy
put them into the boiling pot;
they stir them up, and then a por
tion of this food is brought to the stu
dents and their professors. Seated t.t
the table, one of the hungry students be
gins immediately to eat, aud he happens
to get hold of some of the coloqulntida.
He knew it by the taste. He cries out:
'Poison, poison ! Oh, thou man. of God,
there is death in the pot!" Consterna
tion is thrown over the whole group.
What a fortunate thing it was that this
student so early found the coloquintida
in the mixture at the table ! You will by
reference find this story is precisely as I
have mentioned it. Well, in our day
there are great caldrons of 6in and death.
Coloquintida of mighty temptation is
pressed into it. Some dip it out, and
caste, and reject it and live. Others dip
It out, taste it, keep on and die. And it is
the business of every minister of reliaion
and every man who wishes well to tha
human raco, and who wants to keep the
world back from Us follies and its suffer
ings, to cry out: "Beware! poison! poi
son! Look out for this caldron 1' Stand
Sin has done an awful work in our
world. It has gone out through all the
ages. lt has mixed up a great caldron of
trouble and suffering and pain, and the
whole race is poisoned poisoned in body,
poisoned in mind, poisoned in soul. But
blessed be God that the Gospel of Jesus
Christ is the antidote, and where there
was sin there shall be pardon, and where
there was suffering there shall be com
fort, and where there was death there
shall be life. Some time ago, you will
remember. I persuaded you of the im
portance of being charitable in judgment
of others. At the same time I said to
you briefly what this morning I wish to
say with great emphasis, that wh'le we
sympathize with the sinner, we must de
nounce the sin; that whilo we pity the
unfortunate, we must be vehement
against transgression. Sin is a jagged
thing that needs to be roughly handled.
Yon have no right to garland it with fine
phrases or lustrous rhetoric. You can
aot catch a buffalo with a silken lasso.
A grotrp of emigrants settle in a wild
region. The next day a wild beast comes
down from the mountain and carries off
one of the children. The next day a wild
beast comes down from the mountain
and carries off another child. Forthwith
all the neighbors band together, and they
go out with torch in one hand and gun in
the other to hunt these monsters down, to
find their biding place, to lieht up and
ransack the caverns, and to destroy the
invaders of their houses. So we want
now not merely to talk about the sins and
follies of the world, we want to go behind
them, back of them. Down into tlie cav
erns where they bide we need to go with
the torch of God's word in one hand and
the sword of God's eternal spirit in the
other to hunt out and slay these iniquities
In their hiding' places. Or, to come back
to the figure suggested by my text, we
want to find what are the caldrons of sia
and death from which the iniquities of
society are dipped out. j
In the first place, I remark, that un
happy and nndisciplined homes are tlie
caldrons of great iniquity. Parents,
harsh and cruel on the one hand, or, on
the other hand, loose in their government,
wickedly loose in their government, are
raising up a generation of vipers. A
home where scolding and fretfulness are
dominant is blood relation to the gallows
and the penitentiary ! Petulance Is a
serpent that crawls up into the family
nursery sometimes and crushes every
thing. Why, there are parents who even
make religion disgusting to their chil
dren. They scold them for not loving
Christ. They have an exasperatag way
of doing their duty. The house is full of
the war-whoop of contention, and from
such a place husband and son go out to
Oh, is there aHagar leading away Ish;
mael Into the desert to be smitten of the
thirst and parched of the sand?, In the
solemn birth hour a .voice fell to thef
from the throne of God, saying: "Take
this child and nurse it for me, and I wilj
give thee thy wages." At even-time;
when the angels of God hver over that
home, do they hear the children lisping
the name of Jesus? O traveler foreter-j
nity. your little ones gathered under your
robes, are yon leading them on the right
road, or are you taking them out on the
dangerous winding bridle path, off which
their inexperienced feet may slip, and np
which comes the howling of the wolf and
the sound of loosened ledge and tumbling
avalanche? Blessed is the family altar
at which the children kneel. Blessed is
the cradle in which the Christian mother
rocks the Christian child. Blessed is the
song the little ones sing at nightfall,
when sleep is closing the eyes and loos
ening the hand from the toy on the pil
low. Blessed is that mother whose every
heart throb is a prayer for her children's
The world grows old, and the stars will
cease to illuminate it, and the waters to
refresh it, and the mountains to guard it,
and the heavens to overspan it, and its
long story of sin and shame, and glory
and triumph, will soon turn to ashes; but
influences that started in the early home
roll on and roll np through all eternity
blooming in all the joy, waving in all tbe
triumph, exulting in all the song, or
shrinking back into all tbe darkness.
Father, mother, which way are you lead
ing your children? A house took fire and
the owner was very careful to get all his
furniture out. He got all his books out,
and he got all his pictures out, and he got
all his valuable papers out, but he forgot
to ask, until it was too late: "Are my
children safe?" Oh, when the earth shall
melt with fervent heat, and the mountains
shall blaze, and the seas shall blaze, and
the earth shall blaze, will your children
be safe? Will your children be safe? Un
happy and undisciplined homes are the
sources of much of the wretchedness and
sin of the world.
I know there are exceptions to it some
times. From a bright and beautiful
Christian home a husband or a son will
go out to die. Oh, how long you had that
boy in your prayers! He does not know
how many sleepless nights you have
pol over bin. He dues not understand
how many tears you have shed for his
waywardness. Oh, It is hard, after you
have toiled for a child, and given him
every advantage and every kindness, to
have him pay you back in ingratitude.
As one Sabbath morning a father came to
the foot of the pulpit as I stepped out of
it, and said: "O, my son, my son!"
There is many a young man proud of his
mother, tho would strike into the dust
any man who would insult her, who is at
this moment himself, by his evil doing
and his bad habits, sharpening a dagger
to plunge through that mother's heart. A
telegram brought him from afar. He
went bloated and scarred into the room
and he stood by the lifeless form of his
Her hair gray; it had turned gray In
sorrow. Those eyes had wept floods of
tears over his wanderings. That still
white hand had done him many a klud
ness, and had written many a loving in
vitation and good counsel. Ho had
broken her old heart. He came into tho
room and threw himself on the casket"
and he sobbed outright: "Mother,
mother!" but those lips that had kissed
him in infancy and uttered so many kind
words spake not; they were sealed.
Rather than have such a memory come
on my soul, I would prefer to have roll
over me the Alps and the Himalayas.
But while sometimes there are sous who
turn out very badly coming from good
homes, I waut to tell you for your en
couragement it is a great exception. Yet
au unhappy and undisciplined homo is
the poisonous caldron from which a vast
multitude drink their death.
I remark that another caldron of in
iqnity is an indolent life. All the rail
trains down the Hudson river yesterday,
all the rail trains on the Pennsylvania
route, all the trains on the Ixng Island
road brought to these cities young men to
begin commercial life. Some of them
are here this moruinjr, I doubt not. Do
you know what one of your great tempta
tions is going to be? It is the example of
indolent people in our cities. Thoy are
in all our cities. They dress better than
some who are industiions. They have
access to all places of amusement plenty
of money, and yet idle. They hang around
our great hotels tho Fifth Avenue, the
Windsor, the Brunswick, tho Stuyvesant,
the Gilsey House all our beautiful hotels,
you find them around there any day men
who do nothing, never earn any thing,
yet well dressed, having plenty. - Why
should I work? Why should you work?
Why drudge and toil in bank, and shop
and office, or on the scaffolding, or by the
anvil, when these men get along so well
and do not work?
Some of them hang around the City
Halls of our great cities, toothpick ia
their mouth, waiting for somo crumb to
fail from the officeholder's table. Some
of them hang around the City Hall for the
city van bringing criminals from the nta-tion-houses.
They stand there and gloat
over it really enjoy the disgrace and
suffering of those poor creatures as they
get out of the city van and po into the
courts. Where do they pet their money?
That is what you ask. That is what I ask.
Only four ways of gtting money only
four: by inheritance, by earning it, by
begging it, by stealing it; and there ore a
vast multitude among us who get their
living not by inheritance, nor by earning
it, nor by beginp it. I do not like to
take the responsibility of saying how
lhey get it. . . .
Now, those men ore a constant tempta
tion. Why should I toil and wear myself
out in the bank, or the office, or the store,
or the shop, or the factory? These men
have nothing to do. They pet along a
great deal better. And that is the
temptation under which a great many
younor men fall. They begin to consort
with these men, these idlers, and they go
downihe same awful steeps. The num
ber of men in our cities who are trying to
get their livinp by their wits and by
sleight of hand is all the time increasing.
A New York merchant saw a young
man, one of his clerks, in half disguise,
going into a very low place of amuse
ment. Tho merchant said to himself : 4,I
must look out for that clerk; he is poing
in bad company aud goinnf in bad places;
I must look out for him." A few months
passed on, and one morninpr tho merchant
entered his store, and this clerk of whom
I have been speaking came tip in as
sumed consternation and said: "Oh, sir,
the store has been ou fire; 1 have put out
the fire, but there are a great many goods
lost; we have had a preat crowd of poo
ple coming and poiug." Then the mer
chant took the clerk by the collar and
said: "I have had enough of this; you
can not deceive me; where are those
goods yon stole?" The young man in
stantly confessed his villainy.
O, the numbers of people iu these frreat
A Cities who are trying to get their living
not honestly! And ther are a mighty
temptation to the industrious young man
who can not understand it. While these
others have it so easy they have it so
hard. Horatius of olden time was told
that h could have just as much ground
as he could plow around with a yoke of
oxen in one day. Ib. hooked up the oxen
to the plow, and he cut a very larpe circle
aud plowed until he came to the same
point where he started, and all thit prop
erty was his. But I have to tell you to
day that just so much financial, just so
much moral, just so much spiritual pos
session you will have as you compass
with yonr own industries, on 1 just so
much as from the morning of your life to
the evening of yonr life you can plow
around with your own hard work. "Go
to the ant, thou sluggard; consider ler
ways and be wi.e." One of the most
awful' caldrons of death to-day is an in
dolent life. Thauk God that you have to
Once more I remark: that tho dram
shop Is a great caldron of iniquity in our
time. Anacharsis said that tho vine bore
three grapes: the first was pleasure, the
next was drunkenness, and the next
misery. Every saloon above ground or
under ground is a fountain of iniquity.
It may have a license and it may go along
quite respectably for awhile, but after
awhile the cover will fall off and tho
color of the iniquity will bn displayed.
"Oh," says somo one, "you ought to lie
easier on such a traffic when it pays such
a large revenue to the Government, and
helps to support your school and your
great institutions of mercy." And then I
think of what William E. Gladstone said
I think it was the first tisie he was
Chancelor of the Exchequer when men
engaged in that ruinous traffic came to
him and said their business ought to have
more consideration from the fact that it
paid su'-h a large revenue to the English
Government. Mr. Gladstone said: "Gen
tlemen, don't worry yourselves about the
revenue; give me thirty millions of sober
people, and we'll have revenue enough
and a surplus."
We mi'ht in this country this traffic
perished have lens revenue, but we
would have more happy homes, and we
would have more peace. ar;i we wonld
have fewer people in the penitentiary,
and there would be tens of thousands of
men who are now on ths road to hell who
would start on the road to Heaven. Hut
the financial ruin is a very small part of
it. This Iniquity of which I speak takes
every thing that is sacred out of th fami

everr thing that is infinite in the soul

A young man, through the interces
sion of metropolitan f rieuds, gets a plao
in a bank or store. He is going to leave
his country home. That morning they
are up early in the old homestead. The
trunk is ia the wagon. Mother says:
"My son. I put a Bible in the trunk; I
hope you will read it often." She wipes
the tears away with her apron. "Oh,"
he says, ''come, don't be worried, I know
how to take care of myself. Don't be
worried about me." The father says:
"My son, be a good boy, and write home
often; your mother will be anxious to
hear from yon." Crack 1 goes the
whip, and over the hills goes the
wagon. Five years passed on, and a dis
sipated life has done its work for that
young man. There is a hear le coming up
in front of the old homsstaad. The
young men of the neighborhood who hava
staid on the farm come in and say: "Is

Lorenzo do Medici was very side, and
some of his superstitious friends thought
if they could dissolve a certalu number
of pearls lu cup, and then bo would
drink them It would cure him of tho dis
ease. So they went around and they
gathered up all the beautiful pearls they
could find, and they dissolved them ia a
cup and the sick man drank thm. Oh, it
was an expensive draught. Bu I tell you
of a more expensive draught than that.
Drunkenness puts into its enp the pearl
of physical health, tho pearl of domestio
happiness, therearl of respectability, the
pearl of Christian hope, the pavl of an

I tell you the dramshop is the gate of
hell. The trouble is they do not put up
the right kind of a sign. They ha7e a

on places where strong drink is sold. One
is called the "restaurant," and another
is called tho "saloon." and another is
called the "hotel," and another is called
the "wine cellar," and another Is called
the "sample room." What a name to
give oue of those places! A "sample
room!" I saw a man on the steps of one
of those "sample rooms" the other day,
dead drunk. I snld to myself: "I suppose
that is a sample!" I tell you it is the
