Jf'r Around thn Throne In the AnotMljrpM,
! Brooklyn, June 8. This Is sacra
mental and baptismal day with the
Tabernacle congregation, an occasion
of especial luiprussivenese. The ohll-
Jdreu were baptized before the sermon
and the sacnimuut administered after
sermon. The subject of Dr. Talmage's
discourse was: "AU Troubles Past"
and the text Rev. Iv, 8 s "There was a
rainbow round about the throne." Fol
lowing it tb sermon :
An, after a night of fearful tempest
at tea, one ship, more stanoh than an
other, rides on undamaged amoug the
fragment of span and hulks that float
about, so old Noah's ark, at the close
of the deluge, floats on over the wreck
of a dead world. Looking out of the
window of the ark, you see the
planks of houses, and the sheaves of
wheat, and the eoroaeees of eattlo,
and the corpses of men. Mo tower

ers to fonu in line of procession; no
ground in which to bury the dead.

modern ship, In majesty and beauty,

piotraet the agony nf the good people
in such a craft, when they might In one

Bnt at yonder spot In the borixon we
see colors gathering in tho sky; at Just
the opposite point in tlie horiion other
colors ore gathering. I And that they
are the two buttresses of an arched
bridge. The yellow, the red, the or
ange, the blue, the indigo, the violet
are mingled, and by Invisible hands the
whole struoture is bung into the sky,
and the ark has a triumphal arah to
sail under. An Angel of Light swings
his hand across the sky, and in the
seven prismatio colors he paints with
pencil of sunbeam the everlasting cov
enant between God and ovory living
creature. God liftod up that great
arched bridge and set it over his own
bend in the heaven. John saw it, for
he sayB: "There was a rainbow ronnd
about the throne."
THK COVKNANT OF MKHCY.
I notice that none but the poople who
were In the ark suw the rainbow. It
oast its shadow clear down Into the
water where the peoplo were buried,
and lighted up the dead faces with a
strange radiance, but t liny could not see
It So only tliose who are at lout found
in Christ, the ark, will see tho over
spanning glories of tho throne. Hence
yon had better got Into the ark I As
you oall your family out at the oloee of
the shower to show them the sign hi
heaven, so I want yon all at hurt to see
the grander rainbow round abont the
throne. "Look there 1" suya Noah to
his wifo, "at that bow in the clouds;
and, Bhem and Jnphet, look I look I
the green, the yellow, the red, and the
orange!" I should not wonder If some
of your own children hi tho good land
should after a while cry out to you,
"Look, father! look, mother! there Is
a rainbow round about tlie tlirono!"
You hod bettor get Into tho ark, with
all your faniilloa, if you wont to see it
I notice also that the chief glory of
God comes after tho rain. No shower,
no rainbow; no trouble, no brightness
of Christian oonsolutiou. Weavers ore
sometimes, by reason nf their work,
dusty and rough In their apparel ; and
so It is the coarse clad tempest, whose
hand and foot swing the shuttle, that
weaves tlie rainbow. Many Christians
are dull, and stupid, and n acinus be
cause they have not had disaster enough
to wake them np. The brightest scarf
that heaven mnkca is thrown over the
shoulders of the storm. You cannot
make a thorough Christian life out of
sunshine alone. There are some very
dark hues In tlie ribbon- of the rain
bow; you must have in life the blue as
well as the orange. Mingling all the
colors of the former makes a white
light; and It takes all the shades and
sadnesses and vicissitude of life to
make the white luster of a pure Chris
Your child asks you, "Father, what
makes the rainbow I" and you say, "It
is the sunlight striking through the
rain drops." Therefore I wondered
how there eonld be a rainbow Jn
heaven, since there are no storms there ;
bat then I conclude that that rainbow
mast be formed by tlie striking of
heaven's sunlight through the failing
tears of earthly sorrow. When we see
a man overwhelmed with trouble, and
his health goes, and his property goes,
and bis friends go, I soy, "Now wo
hall see the glory of God In tills good
man's deliverance." As at Niagara
falls I saw, one day, ten rainbows
spanning the awful plunge of the cata
ract, so over the abyss of the Cliristlon's
trial hover the rich lmed wings of all
BAJITH'I BKAOTTKS TO BB SLOHIKIRD.
I notice that the most beautiful
things of this world are to be preserved
m heaven. When yon see the lost color
fade out from the mlnbow of earth,
you need not feel sod, for you will sue
the rainbow round about the tlirone.
That story about the world burning up
has given me many a pang. When
read that Paris was besieged, I said,
"Now the pictures and statues In the
Louvre and Lnxemhourg will Imi do

Is it not a more melancholy thought
uiat ram is to come upon this great
glory of the earth, hi whloh the mount
ains are tlie chiseled sculptures, and
upon tlie sky, in which the "transfigu
ration" of sunrise and sunset Is hung
with loops and tassels of fire!
I was relieved when I found that the
pictures had been removed from the
Louvre and the Luxembourg, and I am
relieved now when I think that tlie bast
parts of this earth are either to be re
moved or pictured. In the Hood Land.

It is a tpieer buMness. To lie n success

ments. The ouo who travels tranquilly
along the road to fortune is he who is
well educated, talks well, dresses well,
and, above nil, knows well the man to
whom he presents his tips. Tlie business
of the tipster is to give iufumuitinn as to
the probable course of the price of sUn'kB
and to secure an interest in any purchase
or sale made by the moneyed individual
to whom he imparts the information. If
the tipster is right of ciu-r than ho is
wrong, then he makes money and Is re

they are gissl, why, he is despised and
even haU-d, and, Instead of truffles, he
lives on coffee and rakes, and is a prophet
without honor iu any country.
