Bhooklyn, Nov. SO. - Dr. Tulmnge
preached today the tentli of hia series
of sermons on Ills Palest ino tour, de
scribing Ilia experiences on the lake
whose waters wore onoe stilled at the
eoiuiuand of Christ The sermon,
which was doilverad in the Brooklyn
Academy of Musla In the morning tuid
as usual repented before an enormous
audience at The Christian Herald sorv
lee in New York In the evening, was
from the text, "He entered into a ship
and sat In the sea; and the whole inul

It Is Monday morning In our Pales
tine experience, and the sky Is A blue
Galilee above as in the boat we sail
the blue Galileo beneath. It Is thirteen
miles long and sit miles wide, but the
atmosphere Is so clear it seems as if I
could east a stnuo from booch to beaoli.
The lake looks as though it hod been
let down on silver pulleys from the
heavens and were a section of the sea
of glass that St John describes as a
part of the celestial landscape. Lake
Galilee is a depression of six hundred
feet in which the river Jordan widens
and tarries a little, for the river Jor
dan comes ir, at its north side and de
parts from its south side, so this lake
has its cradle and Its grave. Its white
satin eradle is among the snows of
Mount Ilermon, where the Jordan
starts, and Its sepulcher is tho Dead
sea, Into which tho Jordan empties.
Lake Como, of Italy; Lake Geneva, of
Switzerland. I-nUe Lomond, of Scot
land; Lake Wiiiliiicsnukoe, of America,

As sometimes a beautiful child in a
neighborhood has a half dozen pet
Domes, and some of the neighbors call
her by one namo and others by an
other, eo this pet lake of the planet has
a profusion of names. Ask tho Arab
as he goes by what this sheet of. water
kv and ho will call it Tabariyoli. Ask
alone of tho Old Testament, nnd he
calls it Boa of Chinnereth. Ask Mat
thew, and ho calls it Sea of Galilee.
Ask Luke, and he calls it Sea of Gen-
nesnret Ask John, and he calls it Sea
of Tiberias. Ask Jistephus and Euse
blus, and they have other names ready.
But to me it appears a child of the
sky, a star of the hills, a rhapsody of
the mountains, the baptismal bowl of
the world s temple, the smile of the
great God. Many kinds of fish are
found hi these waters, every kind of
tree ujion its bank, from those that
grow in the torrid tono to those in the
frigid, from the palm to the cedar.
Of the two hundred and thirty war
ships Joncphus maneuvered on tlrase

wull as a historian there remains not
one piece of a hulk, or one patch of a

return to America we never will until
we have hod a soil upon this Inland
see. Not from a wharf, but from
beach covered with black and white
pebbles we go on board a boat of
about ten or twelve tons, to be pro-
palled partly by soil and partly by
oar. The oiast leans so far forward
that H seems about to fall, but we And

We put our overcoats and shawls on
a small dock in the storu of the boat,
the very kind of a deck where Christ
lay on a fisherman's coat wheu of old
tempest pounced upon the fishing
smack of tlie affrighted disciples. Os
preys and wild duck and kingfishers fly
overhead or dip their wings Into tint
lake, mistaking It for a fragment of
fallen sky. Can it bo that those Bible

race, and one must go thoroughly
armed, and us I never shot anyone and
have no ambition to bo shot, I said,
"Let us stay by thu western shore.
But we look over to tho hills of Ga-
dara, on the other side, down which
two thousand swine after being pos
sessed by the devil ran into tho lake,
and bringing down on Christ for per
milting It the wrath of nil the stork
raisers of that country, because of this
ruining of tho pork business. You see
that Satnn I a spirit of bad tiwto. Why
did he not say: "Ict me go into those
birds, whole Hocks of which Hy over
Galilee." No; that would hnvo been
too high. "Why not lot me go into
the sheep which wander over these
hills r" No; that would have ls-en too
gentle, "liather let me go into these
swine. I want to be with tho denizens
of the mire. 1 want to associate with
the inhabitants of the fllth. Great Is
mud I I prefer bristles to wings. I
would nither root than fly I like
snout better than wing."
Infidelity wolfs at the Idea that those
swine should have run into the lake.
But It was quite natural that under
the heat nnd burning of that demoniac
pc-ssc-e.il in they would start fur the wa
ter to get cooled oil. Would that all
the swine thus xisi-scd hud plunged
to the same drowning, for to this day

Do not mix up this rase with the an
gry disoumlons abont Christian science,
but aoovpt the doctrine, as old as the
Bible, that God doe answer prayer for
the alok. That Cmftamaia bo was
not tue oniy illustration of the fact that
prayer Is mightier than a typhoid fever.

I think lie will get well." Prayer will
yet be acknowledged in the world's ma

put thy hand ou the white miuie of the
foaming billows of Guunennrot and
moke them lie down at thy fwt, hush

Oh, thou hloMcd Christ, who on tlie
night when the disciples were trying to
cross this lake and "the wind was con
trary," after nine hours of rowing bad
outdo only throe miles, didst come
stepping on water that at tlie touch of
