In this discourse Dr. Talrnage repre
sents religion as a great refreshment,
and invites all the world to come and
receive it; text, Genesis, 2'J:8. "We
cannot until all the flocks be gathered
together and till they roll the stone
from the well's mouth; then we water
A scene in Mesopotamia, beautifully
pastoral. A well of water of .great
value in that region. The fields a rounfj
about it white with three flocks of
sheep lying down wajting for the wa
tering. I hear their bleating coming
on the bright air and the laughter of
young men and maidens indulging in
rustic repartee. I look off, and I see
other flocks of sheep coming. Mean
while Jacob, a stranger, on the inter
esting errand of looking for a wife,
comes to the well. A beautiful shep
herdess comes to the same well. I see
her approaching, followed by her fa
ther's sheep. It was a memorable
meeiting. Jacob' married that shep
herdess. The Bible account of it is:
"Jacob kissed Rachel and lifted up his
voice and wept." It has always been a
mystery to me what he found to cry
about! But before that scene oc
curred Jacob accosts the shepherdsand
asks them why they postpone the
slaking of the thirst of their sheep
and. why they did not immediately pro
ceed to water them. The shepherds
reply to the effect: "We are all good
neighbors, and as a matter of cour
tesy we wait until all the sheep of the
neighborhood come up. Besides that,
this stone on the well's mouth is some
what heavy, and several of us take hold
of it and push it asid, and then the
buckets and the troughs are filled and
the sheep are satisfied." "We cannot

the well's mouth; then we water the
Oh, this is a thirsty world ! Hot for
the head, and blistering for the feet,
and parching for the tongue. The
world's great want is a cool, refresh
ing, satisfying draft. We wander
around and we find the cistern empty.
Long and tedious drought has dried
up the world's fountain, but cen
turies ago a Shepherd, with crook in
the shape of a cross and feet cut to
the bleeding, explored the desert pas
sages of the world and one day came
icross a well a thousand feet deep,
bubbling, and bright and opalescent,
and looked to the north, and the south,
and the east, and the west, and cried
out with a voice strong and musical,
that rang through the ages: "Ho,
everyone that thirsteth, come ye to the
Now a great flock of sheep to-day
g3ther around this Gospel well. There
are a great many thirst j- souls. I won
der why the flocks of all nations do
not gather, why so many stay thirstj',
and while lam wondering about it my
text breaks forth in the explanation,
saying: "We cannot until all the flocks
be gathered together and till they roll
the stone from the well's mouth; then
we water the sheep."
If a herd of swine come to a well,
they angrfly jostle each other for the
precedence; if a drove of cattle come
to a well, they hook each other back
from the water, but when a flock of
sheep come, though a hundred of them
shall be .disappointed, they only ex
press it by sad bleating, they come to
gether peaceably. We want a great
multitude to come around the Gospel
well. I know there are those who do
not like a crowd; they think a crowd
is vulgar. If they are oppressed for
room in church, it makes them posi
tively impatient and belligerent. We
have had people permanently leave
church because so many other people
came to it. Not so did these oriental
shepherds. They waited until all the
flocks were gathered, and the more
flocks that came the better they liked
it. And so we ought to be anxious
that all the people should come. Go
out into the highways and the hedges
and compel them to come in. Go to
the rich and tell them they are indi
gent without the Gospel of Jesus. Go
to the poor and tell them the affluence
there is in Christ. Go to the blind
and tell them of the touch that gives
eternal illumination. Go to the lafiie
and tell them of the joy that will make
the lame man leap like a hart. Gather
all the sheep off all the mountain-.
None so torn of the dogs, none so sick,
none so worried, none so dying as to
be omitted. Why not gather a great
flock? All this city is a flock, all New
York is a flock, all London is a flock,
all the world is a flock.
This well of the Gospel is deep
enough to put out the burning thirst
of the l.GOO.000,000 of the race. Do
not let the church by a spirit of ex
clusiveness keep the world out. Let
down all the bars, swing open all the
gates, scatter all the invitations.
"Whosoever will, let him come." Come,
white and black. Come, red men of
the forest. Come Laplander, out
of the snow. Come Patagonian, out of
the south. Come infurs. Come pant
ing under palm leaves. Come one.
Come all. Come now. As at this well
of Mesopotamia Jacob and Kachel
were betrothed, so this morning at this
well of salvation Christ, our Shepherd,
will meet you coming up with your long
flocks of cares and anxieties, and He
will stretch out His hand in pledge
of His affection, while all Heaven will
cry out: "Behold, the bridegroom
cometh! Go ye out to meet him!"
You notice that this well of Meso
potamia had a stone on it, which
must be removed before the sheep
could be watered, and I find on the
well of salvation to-day impediments
and obstacles which, must be . re
moved in order that yon may obtain
the refreshment and life of this gos
pel. In your case the impediment is
pride of heart. You cannot bear to
come to so democratic a fountain;
you do not want to come with so
many others. It is as though you
were thirsty and you were invited to
slake your thirst at the town pump
instead of sitting ia a parlor sipping
out of a chased chalice - which has.
just been lifted from a silver salver.
Not so many publicans and sinners.
You want to get to Heaven, but you
must be in a special car, with your
feet on a Turkish ottoman and a
band of music on board the train.
You do not want to be in company
with rustic Jacob and Iiachel and be
drinking, out of the fountain where
10,0C0 sheep have been drinking be
fore you. You will have to remove
the obstacle of pride or never find
your way to the well. You will have
to come as we came, willing to take
the water of eternal life in any way
and at any hand and in any kind of a
pitcher, crying out: "Oh, Lord Je
sus, I am dying of thirst! Give me
the water of eternal life, whether in
trough or goblet! Give me the wa
ter of life! "I care not in wnat it
comes to me." Away with all your
hindrances of pride from the well's
Here is another man who is kept
back from the water of life by the
stone of an obdurate heart which
lies over the mouth of the well. You
have no more feeling upon this sub
ject than if God had jet to do you
the first kindness or you had to do
God the first wrong. Seated on His
lap all these years. His everlasting
arms sheltering you, where is your
gratitude? Where is your morning
and evening prayer? Where are your
consecrated lives? I say to you, as
Daniel said to Belshazzar: "The God
in whose hand thy breath is, and all
thy way, thou hast not glorified."
If you treafed anybody as badly as
j-ou have treated God, you would have
made 500 apologies; yea, your whole
life would have been an apology.
Three times a day you have been
seated at God's table. Spring, sum
mer, atitumn and winter He has ap
propriately appareled you. Your
health from Him, your companion
from Him, your children from Him,
3our home from Him, all the bright
surroundings of your life from Him.
Oh, man, what dost thou with that
hard heart? Canst thou not feel one
throb of gratitude toward the God
that made you, and the Christ who
came to redeem you, and the Holy
Ghost who. has all these jears been
importuning you? If you could sit
down five minutes under the tree
of a Saviour's martyrdom and feel
His lifeblood trickling on your fore
head and cheek and hands, methinl'i?
you would get some appreciation of
what you owe to a crucified Jesus.
Heart of stone, relent, relent.
Touched by Jesus' cross, subdued;
See His body mangled, rent.
Covered with a gore of blood.
Sinful soul, what hast thou done?
Crucified the .Eternal Son!
Jacob, with a good deal of tug and
push, took the stone from the well's
mouth so that the flocks might be
watered. And I would that this day
my word, blessed of God, might re
move the hindrances to your getting
up to the Gospel well. Yea, I take it
for granted that the work is done, and
now, like oriental shepherds, I pro
ceed to water the sheep. Come, all ye
thirst-! You have an undefined long
ing in your soul. You tried money
making; that did not satisfy you. You
tried office under government; that
did not satisfy you. You tried pic
tures and sculptures, but works of art
did not satisfy you. You are as much
discontented with this life as the
celebrated French author who felt
that he could not any longer endure
the misfortunes of the world and who
said: "At four o'clock this afternoon
I shall put an end to my own exist
ence." Meanwhile I must toil on up
to that time for the sustenance of my
family." And he wrote on his book
until the clock struck four, when he
folded up his manuscript and, by his
own hand, concluded his earthly life.
There are men who are perfectly
discontented. Unhappy in the past,
unhappy to-day, to be unhappy for
ever, unless you come to this Gospel
well. This satisfies the soul with a
high, deep, all absorbing and eternal
satisfaction. It comes, and it offers
the most unfortunate man so much of
this world as is best for him, and
throws all Heaven into the bargain.
The wealth of Croesus and all tlie
Rothschilds is only a poor, miserable
shilling compared with the eternal for
tunes that Christ offers you to-daj
In the far east there was akingwho
used once a year to get on the scales,
while on the other side the scales were
placed gold and silver and gems in
deed, enough were placed there to
balance the king. Then, at the close
of the weighing, all those treasures
were thrown among the populace. But
Christ to-day steps on one side the
scales, and on the oiher side are all
the treasures of the universe, and He
sajs: "All are yours; all height, all
depth, all breadth, all eternity all are
j ours." We do not appeciate the prom
ises of the Gospel.
When an aged clergyman was djinj
a man very eminent in the church- -
a young tneoiogicat siuaeni stooa by
his side, and the aged-man looked up
and said to him: "Can't you give me
some comfort in my dying hour?"
"No," said the young man: "I can't
talk to you on this subject. You know
all about it and have known it so long."
"Well," said the dying man, "just re
cite to me some promises." The young
man thought a moment, and he came
to this promise: "The blood of Jesus
Christ cleanseth from all sin," and the
old man clapped his hands and in his
dying moment said: "That's just the
promise I"have been waiting for 'The
blood of Jesus Christ cleanseth from
all sin.' " Oh, the warmth, the grand
eur, the magnificence, of the promise!
Come also to this Gospel well, all
ye troubled. I do not suppose you
have escaped. Compare your view
of this life at 15 years of age with
what your view is of it at 40 or 60
or 70. What a great contrast of opin
ion! Were you right then or are you
right now? Two cups placed in your
hands, the one a sweet cup, the
other a sour cup. A cup of joy and
a cup of grief. Which has been the
nearest to being full, and ' out of
which have you the more frequently'
partaken? What a different place the
cemetery is from what it used to be!
Once it was to you a grand city im
provement, and you went out on the
pleasure excursion, and you ran
laughingly up the mound, and ' you
criticised in a light way the epitaph.
But since the day when you heard the
bell toll at the gate when you went
in with the procession it is a sad
place, and there is a flood of rush
ing memories that suffuse the eye
and overmaster the heart. Oh, you
have had trouble, trouble, trouble!
If I could gather all the griefs of
all sorts from these crowded streets
and could put them in one scroll,
neither man nor angel could endure
the recitation. Well, what do you
want? Would you like to have your
property back again? "No," you say
as a Christian man; "I was becoming
arrogant, and I think that is why
the Lord took it away. I don't want
to have my property back." "Well,
woulI you have your departed friends
back again? "No," you say; "I
couldn't take the responsibility of
bringing them from a tearless realm
to a realm oi tears. I couldn't do it.
Well, then, what do you want? A
thousand voices in the audience cry
out: "Comfort. Give us comfort!"
For that reason I have rolled away
the stone from the well's mouth.
Come, all ye wounded of the flock,
pursued of the wolves, come to the
fountain where the Lord's sfck and
bereft ones have. come. "Ah," says
some one, "you are not .old enough to
understand my sorrows. You have
not been in the world as long as I
have, and you can't talk to me about
my misfortunes in the time of old
age." Well, I may not have lived as
long as you, but I have been a great
deal among old people, and I know
how they feel about their failing
health and about their departed
friends and about the loneliness that
sometimes strikes through their
After two persons have lived to
gether for 40 or 50 years and one is
taken away, what desolation! I shall
not forget the cry of Dr. De Witt, of
New York, when he stood by the open
grave of his beloved wife .and after
the obsequies had ended he looked
down into the open place and said:
"Farewell, my honored, faithful and
beloved wife. The bond that bound
us is severed. Thou art in glory, and
I am here on earth. We shall meet
again. Farewell, farewell!"
You get a little worried for fear that
some time you will come to want, do
you? Your children and grandchil
dren sometimes speak a little sharp to
j'ou because of your ailments. The
Lord will not speak sharp. Do you
think you will come to want? What
do you think the Lord is? Are His
granaries empty?" Will He feed thei
raven and the rabbit and the lion in
the desert, and forget you? Why, nat
uralists tell us that the porpoise will
not forsake its wounded and sick mate.
And do you suppose the Lord of Heaven
and earth has not as much sympathj
as the fish of the sea? But you say:
"I am so near worn out, and I am of
no use to God any more." I think the
Lord knows whether you are of any
more use or not. If you were of no
more use. He would have taken you
before this. Do you think God has for
gotten j'ou because He has taken care
of you 70 or 80 years? He thinks more
of you to-day than He ever did, be
cause you think more of him. May
the God of Abraham and Isaac and Ja
cob and Paul the aged be your God for
ever! But I gather all the promises to
day in a group, andlaskthe shepherds
to drive their flocks of lambs and sheep
up to the sparkling supply. "Behold
happy is the man whom God correct
eth." "Though He cause grief, yet will
He have compassion." "Many are the
afflictions of the righteous, but the
Lord delivereth him out of them all."
"Weeping may endure for a night, but
joy cometh in the morning." I am
determined that no one shall go out of
this house uncomforted. Yonder is
a timid and shrinking soul who seems
to hide away from the consolations I
am uttering as a child with a sore
hand hides away from the physician
lest he touch the wound too roughly,
and the mother has to go and compel
the little patient to come out and see
the physician. So I come to your
timid and shrinking soul to-day and
compel you to come out in the pres
ence of the Divine Phj-sician. He will
not hurt jou. He has been healing
wounds for many years, and He will
give you gentle and omnipotent medi
cament. But people, when they have trotible,
gonnywhere rather than to God. De
Quincey took opium to get rid of his
troubles. Charles Lamb took to
punch. Theodore Hook took to some
thing stronger. Edwin Forrest took
to theatrical dissipation. And men
have run all around the earth, hoping
in the quick transit to get away from
their misfortunes. It has been a dead
failure. There is only one well that
can slake the thirst of an afflicted
spirit, and that is the deep and inex
haustible well of the Gospel.
But some one in the audience says:
"Notwithstanding all you have said
this morning, I find no alleviation for
my troubles." Well, I am not through
yet. I have left the most potent con
sideration for the last. I am going
to soothe you with the thought of
Heaven. However talkative we may
be, there will come a time when the
stoutest and most emphatic interroga
tion will evoke from us no answer. As
soon as we have closed our lips for
the final silence no power on earth
can break that taciturnitj But where,
O Christian, will be your spirit? In
a scene of infinite gladness. The
spring morning of Heaven waving its
blossoms in the bright air. Victors
fresh from battle show ing their scars.
The rain of earthly sorrow struck
through with the rurnbow of eternal
joy. In one group God and angels anil
the redeemed, Paul and Silas, Latimer
and Ripley, Isaiah and Jeremiah, Pay
son and John Milton, Gabriel and Mi
chael the archangel. Long line of
choristers reaching across the hills.
Seas of joy dashing to the white beach.
Conquerors marching from gate to
gate. You among them. Oh, what
a great flock God will gather around
the celestial well. No stone on the
well's mouth while the Shepherd wa
ters the sheep. There Jacob will rec
ognize Rachel the shepherdess. And
standing on one side of the well of
eternal rapture your children, and
standing on theiother side of eternal
rapture your Christian ancestry. You
will be bounded on all sides by a joy
so keen and grand that no other worlA
has ever been permitted to expe
rience it. Out of that one deep well
of Heaven the Shepherd will dip re
union for the bereaved, wealth for the
poor, health for the sick, rest for the
weary. And then all the flock of the
Lord's sheep will lie down in the green
pastitres, and world without end we
will praise the Lord that on this sum
mer Sabbeth morning we were per
mitted to study the story o'f Jacob and
Rachel at the well.
JOKE ON SCIENTISTS.
Minister Tells the Secret of Famour
Los Anffelea Preacher Sara That R. C.
Scrlbner Confessed He Started
Scientific Mystery- bj--Depositing-
the Bones as m. Joke.
The solution of a scientific mystery
which has puzzled geologists and au
thorities on the antiquity of man for
35 years was explained the other day
when a minister of Los Angeles, Cal.,
confessed that the mystery started as
a practical joke.
In 1S66 an imperfect human skull
was found in a depositof gravel, known
tobe ancient, in a gold mine in
Calaveras county, Cal.
The latest volume of reports from
the Smithsonian institution contains
a paper by Prof. William JT. Holmes,
describing recent researches in refer
ence to this skull made by him and
Prof. W. J. McGee. Prof. Holmes ex
presses doubt, but does not consider
his conclusions decisive. This report
having come to the notice of Rev. W.
H. Dyer, an Episcopalian clergyman
of Los Angeles, Cal., he told the story
which solves the mystery.
In the '70s he was a missionary at
Angeles camp, near which the skull
was. found. During that time R. C.
Scribner, who kept a store at Angeles
camp, confidentially confessed to him
that he had conceived and carried out
the joke. He took an old Indian skull,
went to the bottom of the shaft whila
the workmen were away and buried it
in the auriferous gravel. There it was
soon found, and the papers were filled
with speculations of writers as to the
antiquity of man.
(The above undoubtedly refers to the dis
covery upon which Bret Harte founded hla
famous poem In which Is related the discus
sion In a scientific society: "Upon the
Stanislaw," over the finding: of some sup
posed human bones In a mine. "When the
discussion Is at Its height one member de
clares they are the bones of his mule,
which fell into the mine several years be
fore. Then a fight occurs and one of the
specimens strikes Johnson

And the subsequent proceedings interested
him no more.")

Onr German Trade.
Ambassador White has made the
subject of United States trade with
Germany the basis of a special report
to the state department. He deals
with the matter broadly and presents
interesting figures. For instance he
shows that in the course often years
the United States has advanced from
fourth to first place on the basis of
foods shipped to Germany, the total
value of such goods and natural prod
ucts in 1900 being $266,750,400.- The
United States thus stands far above
any other country in this trade. On
the other hand, in the matter of goods
imported from Germany, the United
States has stood in third place with
out change for the ten years, the value
of the imports in 1900 being $104,
