of Chicago; A. B. Farquhar, York,
Pa., and W. C. Barker of New York,
who are here to attend the.reciproc
ity convention, which meets Tues
day, presented a memorial strongly
irging that something be done. The
delegation told the president that in
its opinion the time for action had
come. Reciprocity had been talked
and preached about for years and un
less a decisive step was taken now
which would affect something the

A LESSON OF HOPE.
Dr. Talmage Would Lift People
Out of Despondency.
Shows Some of tbe Future Joy Which
May Be the Portion of Every
Copyright, 1901. by Louis Klopsch. N. T.J
In this discourse Dr. Talmage
would lift people out of despondency
and bring something of future joy
into earthly depression. The text is
Hebrews C:19, "Which hope."
There is an Atlantic ocean of depth
and fullness in the verse from which
my text is taken, and I only wade
into the wave at the beach and take
two words. We all have favorite
words expressive of delight or ab
horrence, words that easily find their
way from brain to lip, words that
have in them mornings and mid
nights, laughter and tears, thunder
bolts and dewdrops. In all the lexi
cons and vocabularies there are few
words that have for me the attrac
tions of the last word of my text:
There have in the course of our
life been many angels of God that
have looked over our shoulders, or
met us on the road, or chanted the
darkness away, or lifted the curtains
of the great future, or pulled us back
from the precipices, or rolled down
upon us the rapturous music of the
heavens, but there is one of these
angels who has done so much for us
that we wish throughout all time
and all eternity to celebrate it the
angel of Hope. St. Paul makes it the
center of a group of three, saying:
"Now abideth faith, hope, charity."
And, though he saj-s that charity is
the greatest of the three, he does not
take one plume from the wing, or
one ray of luster from the brow, or
one aurora from the cheek, or one
melody from the voice of the angel
of my text: "Which hope."
That was a great night for our
world when in a Bethlehem caravan
sary the Infant Royal was born, and
that will be a great night in the
darkness of your soul when Christian
hope is born. There will be chanting
in the skies and a star pointing to
the nativity. I will not bother you
with the husk of a definition and tell
you what hope is. When we sit down
hungry at a table, wc do not want an
analytical discourse as to what bread
is. Hand it on; pass it roind; give
us a slice, of it. John speaks of
hope as a "pure hope." Peter calls
it a "lively hope." Paul styles it a
"good hope," a "sure hope," a "re
joicing hope." All up and down the
Bible it is spoken of as an anchor,
as a harbor, as a helmet, as a door.
When we draw a check on a bank,
we must have reference to the
amount of money we have deposited,
but Hope makes a draft on a bank
in which for her benefit all Heaven
has been deposited. Hope! May it
light up every dungeon, stand by
every sickbed, lend a helping hand
to every orphanage, loosen every
chain, caress every forlorn soul and
turn the unpictured room of the
almshouse into the vestibule of
Heaven! How suggestive that my
thology declares that when all other
deities fled the earth the goddess
It was hope that revived John
Knox when on shipboard near the
coast of Scotland he was fearfully
111, and he was requested to look
shoreward and asked if he knew the
village near the -coast, nd he an
swered: "I know it well, for I see
the steeple of that place where God
first opened my mouth in public to
His glory, and I am fullv persuaded
how weak that ever I now appear I
shall not depart this life till my
tongue shall glorify His holy name
in the same place." His hope was re
warded, and for 25 more years he
preached. That is the hope which
sustained Mr. Morrell, of Norwich,
when departing this life at 24 years
of age he declared: "I should like
to understand the secrets of eternity
before to-morrow morning." That
was the kind of hope that the-corporal
had in the battle when, after
several standard bearers had fallen,
he seized the flag and turned to a
lieutenant colonel and said: "If I
fall, tell my dear wife that I die with
a good hope in Christ and that I am
glad to give my life for my country."
That was the good hope that Dr.
Goodwin had in his last hour when
he said: "Ah, is this death? How
have I dreaded as an enemy this
Philippe de Mornay, prime minister
of Henry IV., when asked in his last
hours whether he was certain of
eternal felicity, replied: "I am as
confident of it from the incontesta
bility of the spirit of God as ever
I was of any mathematical truth
from all the demonstrations of Eu
clid." That was the hope, that
cheered Vara, the converted native
of the island of Aimeo, when he said
in his last moment: "The canoe
is on the sea? sails are spread; she
is ready for the gale. I have a good
pilot to guide me and a good haven
to receive me."
No better medicine did a man ever
take than hope. It is a stimulant a
febrifuge, a tonic, a catholicon. Thou
sands of people long ago departed
this life would have been living to
day but for the reason they let hope
slip their grasp. I have known peo
ple to live on hope after one lung
was gone and disease had seemed to
lay hold of every nerve and muscle
and artery and bone.
Alexander the Great, starting for
the wars in Persia, divided his prop- j
erty among the Macedonians. He
gave a village to one, a port to an- 1
other, a held to another and all his !
estate to his friends. Then Perdic
cas asked: "What have you kept for
yourself?" He answered triumphant
ly, "Hope." And, whatever else you
and I give away, we must keep for
ourselves hope all comforting, all
cheering hope. In the heart of every
man, woman and child that hears or
reads this sermon may God implant
this principle right, now.
Is your health gone? Then that is
a sign that you are to enjoy a celes
tial health compared with which the
most jocund and hilarious vitality
of earth is invalidism. Are your for
tunes spent? Remember you are to
be kings and queens unto God and
how much more wealth you will have
when you reign forever and ever. I
want to see you when you get your
heavenly work dress on. This little
bit of a speck of a world we call
the earth is only the place where we
get ready to work. We are only jour
neymen here, but will be master work
men there. Heaven will have no loaf
ers hanging around. The book says
of the inhabitants: "They rest not
day or night." Why rest when they
work without fatigue? Why seek a
pillow when there is no night there?
I want to see j'ou after the pedes
trianism of earth has been exchanged
for powers of flight and velocities
infinite and enterprises interstellar,
I suspect that the telescope of that
observatory brings in sight constella
tions that may comprise ruined worlds
which need looking after and need
help saintly and missionary. There
may be worlds that, like ours, have
sinned and need to be rescued, per
haps saved by our Christ or by some
plan that God has sought out for
other worlds as wise, as potent, as
lovely, as the atonement is for our
world. The laziness which has cursed
us in this world will not gain the land
of eternal activities so much tonic
in the air, so much inspiration in the
societjr, so much achievement after
we get the shackles of the flesh for
ever off. Do not dwell so much on op
portunities past, but put your empha
sis on opportunities to come. Do not
count the battles lost, but scour your
musket for victories to come.
Am I not right in saying that eter
nity can Jdo more for us than can
time? What will we not be
able to do when our powers of loco
motion shall be quickened into the
immortal spirit's speed? Why should
a bird have a switness of wing when
it is of no importance how long it
shall take to make its aerial way
from forest to forest, and we, who
have so much more important errands
in the world, get on so slowly? The
roebuck outruns us, the hounds are
quicker in the chase, but wait until
God lets us loose from all limitations
and hinderments. Then we will fair
ly begin. The starting post will be
the tombstone. Leaving the world
will be grauiia Hon day before the
chief work of our mental and spirit
ual career. Hope sees the doors open
ing, the victor's foot in stirrup for
the mounting. The day breaks first
flush of the horizon. The mission of
hope will be an everlasting mission,
as much of it in the heavenly here
after as in the earthly now. Shall we
ha've gained all as soon as we enter
realms celestial nothing more to
learn, no other heights to climb, no
new anthems to raise, a monotony of
existence, the same thing over and
over again for endless years? No!
More progress in that world than we
ever made in this. Hope will stand
on the hills of Heaven and look for
ever brightening landscapes, other
transfigurations of color, new glories
rolling over the scene, new celebra-
i tions of victories in other worlds,
Heaven rising into grander heavens,
j seas of glass mingled with fire, be
coming a more brilliant glass ming
ling with a more flaming fire. "Which
Do not have anj'thing to do with
the gloom that Harriet Martineau ex
pressed in her dying words: "I have
no reason to believe in another
world. I have had enough of life in
one and can see no good reason why
Harriet Martineau should be perpet
uated." Would you not rather have
the Christian enthusiasm of Robert
Annan, who, when some one said: "I
will be satisfied if I manage somehow
to get into Heaven," replied, pointing
to a sunken vessel that was being
dragged up the River Tay: "Would
you like to be pulled into Heaven
with two tugs like that vessel yon
der? I tell you, I would like to go
in with all my sails set and colors
- Again, let me introduce the element
of hope to those good people who are
in despair about the world's moral
condition. They have gathered up
appalling statistics. They tell of the
number of divorces, but do not take
into consideration that there are a
thousand happy homes where there
is one of marital discord. They tell
you of the large number in our land
who are living profligate lives, but
forget to mention that there are mil
lions of men and women who are do
ing the best they can. They tell you
the number of drunkeries in this
country, but fail to mention the
thousands of glorious churches with
two doors, one door open for all who
will enter for pardon and consolation

Those pessimists do not realize
that two inventions of our times are
going to make it possible under God
to bring this whole world into salva-
ble and millenial condition -within a
few weeks after those two inventions
shall.be turned into the service of
God and righteousness," as they will
be. I refer to the telegraph and the
telephone. If you think that God al
lowed those two inventions to Jte
made' merely to get rapid informa
tion concerning the price of railroad
stocks or to call up a frioxid and
make with him a business engage
ment, you have a very abbreviated
idea of what can be done and will
be done with those two instruments.'
The intelligence of the world is to
be expanded, and . civilization will
overcome barbarism, and illiteracy
will " be extirpated, and the promise
will be literally fulfilled: "A nation
born in a day."
Let Hope say to the foreboding:' ,
Do nil you can with Bible and spell
ing book and philosophic apparatus,
but toil with the sunlight in your
faces or your efforts will be a fail
ure. The pallor in the sky is not
another phase of the night, but the
first sign of approaching day, which
is sure to come as to-night will be
followed with to-morrow. Things
are not going to ruin. The Lord's
hosts are not going to be drowned in
the Red sea of trouble. Miriam's
timbrel will play on the high banks
"Israel Delivered." nigh hope" for
the home!' High hope for the
church! nigh hope for the world!
I introduce the angel of nope to
those who have through decease Iost
Christian friends. "How could I find
them," says a bereft soul, "up there
in the land of the multitudinous?"
You may find them by inquiry, by
heavenly escort and by unfailing
memory of the guard at the gate.
"And he carried me away in the spir
it to a great and high 'mountain,
and showed me that great city, the
holy Jerusalem, descending out ot
Heaven from God, having the glory of
God, and her light was like unto a
stone most precious, even like a jas
per, clear as crystal, and had a wall
great and high, and had 12 gates and
at the gates 12 angels." So, you see,
there will be an angel guarding each
gate. As you go in ask the armed
guard. He saw your loved one pass
through, and will know the direction
to take and by what fountain or in
what street of gold is the mansion
prepared. The blessed Christ knows
where your departed loved one is,
and He will tell you if no one else
will. Fifty ways of finding out the
whereabouts of your ascended one.
"But will I surely know Him when I
get there, for he will be so changed?"
Yes, for you will be just as much,
changed, and the 'old affinity will as
sert itself. The soul will be as easily
distinguished by soul there as on
earth the body is distinguished by

From this hour cultivate hope. Do
so by reading all the Scriptural prom
ises of the world's coming Edenization
and doubt if you dare the veracity of
the Almighty when He says He will
make the desert roseate, and the leop
ard and the kid will lie down in the
same pasture field, and the lion, ceas
ing to be carnivorous, will become
graminivorous, eating "straw like an
ox," and reptilian venom shall change
intoharmlessness.so that the "weaned
child shall put his hand on the cocka
trice's den, and there shall be nothing
to hurt or destroy in all God's holy
mountain, for the earth shall be full
of the knowledge of the Lord, as the
waters cover the sea." So much for
the world at large.
Then cultivate hope in regard to
your own health, j our own financial
prosperhyryaur own longevity, by
seeing how in other people God merci
fully reverses things and brings to
pass the unexpected, remembering
