This discourse of Dr. Talmago it?

Nehemiah viii, f?, "Go forth unto tljo
mount .?nd fetch olivo branches and
pino branches und myrtlo branches
and palm branches und branches Of
thick trees to make booths."
It seems us if Mount Olivet woro
unmoored. Tho people havo gono in
to tho mountain und havo cut off
tree branches and put thora on their
shoulders, and they como forth now
into tho streets of Jerusalem and. on
tho house tops, and they twist theo?
tree branches into arbors or booths.
Then tho pcoplo como forth from
their comfortable homes and dwell
for seven days in theso booths or
arbors. Why do they do that? Well,
H is a great festal time, lt is tho
feast of tabernacles, and those peo
plo are going to celebrate tho desert
travel of their futhers and their de
liverance from their troubles, tho ex
perience of their fathers when, travel
ing in tho desert, they lived in bootha
on their wuy to tho land of Cannan.
And so theso booths also bccaiuo high

necessarily typical, but highly sug
gestive-of our march toward Heaven
and of tho fact that wo are only liv?

Canaan of eternal rest. And what
was 6oid to the Jews literally may
bo ?aid figuratively to all this au*
dlenco. Clo forth unto tho mountain,
and fetch olivo branohes and pino
branches and luyrtlo branches and
pnlm bronchos and branches of thiok
trees to make booths.
Yes, wo aro only hero In n tem

Thoro is a great lawsuit going on
how, and it is a lawsuit which man ia
bringing against his Maker. That
lawsuit is now on tho calondnr. It is
the human versus the Divine, it is ini
quity versus tho immaculate, lt is
weakness versus omnipotence. Ma?
began, it. God did not begin tho law
suit. We began it. Wo assaulted our
Maker, and tho sooner we end thia
part of tho struggle, in which tho
finito attempts to overthrow the in
j finito and omnipotent-tho sooner wo
end it thc better. Travelers tell ut
there is no such place as Mount
Calvary, that it is only a hill, only nn
insignificant hill, but I persist in
coiling it the mount of God's divine
mercy anti love, far grander than
any other place on earth, grandor
than the Alps or the Himalayas, and
there aro no other hills as compared
with it, and I have noticed in every
sect where tho oross of Chris* is set
forth it is planted with olive
branches. And nil wc have to do is
to got rid of this war between God
end ourselves, of which we are all
tired. Wo wont to back out of tho
war, we want to got rid of this hos
tility. All we havj to do is just to
?jet up on the mount of God's bless

Oh, it doo? wot thoko ruuch differ
enco what tho world thinks of you,
but como into tho warm, intimate,

with the God of tho whole universe!
That is tho joy that makes a hal
leluiah seem stupid. Why do wo want
to have pcaco through our Lord Jesu?
Christ? Why, if wo had gono on in
10,000 years of war against God wo
could not havo captured so m uah as

But my text takes a stop further,
nnd it .< says, Go into tho mountain
and fetch olivo branches and pine
branches and palm branches. Now, tho
palm treo was very much honored
by tho ancients. It had 300 different
uses. Tho fruit was conserved, tho
sap was a beverage, tho steins wero
ground up for food for camels. The
base of tho leaves was turned into
hate and mats nnd baskets, and from
the root to tho top of the highest
leaf there was usefulness. Tho tree
grew 85 feet in height sometimes,
and it spread leaves four and Ave feet
long-, lt mennt usefulness, and it
meant victory-usefulness for what
lt produced and victory because it
was brought iuto celebrations, of
triumph. And oh, how luuoh wo want
tho palm branches in- the churches
of Jesus Christ at this timol A
great many Christians do not amount
to anything. You havo to shove
them oft' tho trao?: to let tho Lord*?
chariots como along.
I know th? old plan waa, the plan
now is, in regard to worldly invest
ments-you hear it, merchants tell
you-do not put everything into ono
thing, do not put? all your eggs into
ono bnskot. But I havo to tell you
in this matter of religion you had
better give your all to God aud then
got in yotirself. Oh, says sonio ono,
"My business is to sell ?Ilks and
cloths," Well, then, my brother, sell
Bilks and cloths to tho glory of God.
And some ono says, "My business is
to raise corn and carrots." Than,
my brother, ra'/?s corn and carrots to
tho glory of God. And socio ono
cays, "My business ls to manufacture
horseshoe nails." Then manufacture
horseshoe nails to tho glory of God.
Thoro 1B nothing for you to do that
you ought to do but for the glory of
Usefulness is typified by the palm
trco.. Ah, wo do not want in the
ohuroh any moro people that oro
?morely weeping willows, nighing Into
the Water, standing and admiring
tholr long lashes in tho glassy spring.
No wild cherry, dropping blttor fruit.
Wo wnnt palm trees, holding some
thing for God, something for angels,
something for man. I am tired nnd
?ick of this flat, tame, insipid, satin
slippered, nambypamby, hightytighty ;
religion I It is worth nothing for this ?
world, and it is destruction for ctor- ;
nity. Oivo mo BOO men and women
fully consecrated to Christ, and we ?
will take this city for God in three <
years. Give mo 10,000 mon and 1
women fully up to the Christian
standard. In ten years 10,000 of ;
them would talco tho whole earth for
God. But whan aro wo going to be- .
gin? Wo all want to be useful. Th ero '
3s not a man in the pows that doos
not want to bo useful. When aro i
Wo going to begin? i
But tho palm branch also meant i
victory. You all know that. In all '
ages, in all lands, the palm branch
means victory. Well, now, we .are by
nature tho servants of satan. He
stole us, he has his eye on us, he
Wants to keep us. But word comes
from our Father that if wo will try
to break looso from this doing of
wrong our Father will help us, and
we look tho black tyrant in tho face,
and wo fly at him, and wo wrestlo
him down, and we put our heel on
his neck, and wo grind him in the
oust, and wo say, "Viotory, vlctoi'y,
through our Lord Je GUS Christi" Oh
what a grand thing it is to have sin
under our foot and a wasted lifo be
hind o\ir backs. "Blessed ia he whoso
tranagression is forgiven and whoso
sin is covored."
Do you not think we had better
begin now to celebrate tho coming
victory? In tho old meeting house
at Somerville my father.used to lead
tho einging, and he had the old fash
ioned tuning fork, and ho would
strike it upon hh knee, ond then
put tho tuning fork to his ear to
catch tho right pitch and start the
hymn. But, friends, do you not think
wo had bettor bo catching the pitch
of tho everlasting soug, the song* of
victory, when we shall be more than
conquerors? Had we not better he-'
gin the rehearsal on earth? "They
shall hunger no more, neither thirst
any moro; neither shall tho sun
light on them, nor any heat. For the
Lamb whloh is in the mist of the
throne shall feed them aud shall lead
them to living fountains of waters?
and God Shall wipe away oil tears
from their eyes."
But then we must have that other
olive branch, peace with man. Now,
it is very easy to get up a quarrel.
There arc gunpowdery Christians all
around us, and one match of provoca
tlon will sot them off. It is easy j
onough to got up a quarrel. But, my j
brother, do you aol think you had
hotter havo your horns sawed off?
Had not yon better mako au apol
ogy? Had not you better submit to
a little humiliation? "Oh," you say,
"until that man takes the first step
I will never be at peaco with him.
Nothing will bc done until he is ready
to take the iirst stopl" You are a
pretty Christian. When would this
world he saved if Christ had not
taken the first step? We wera in tho

But this evergreen of my text also
suggests tho Himplo fact thikt religion
ls overgrecn. What docs tho pine
branoh caro for tho snow on its
brow? It is only a crown of glory.
Tho winter caunot froezo it out. This
evergreen tree branch is as beautiful
In winter as it is in the summer.
And that is tho characteristic of our
holy religion. In tho sharpest, cold
est winter of misfortune and disaster
it is as good a religion as it is in
tho bright summer sunshine. Well,
now, that is a praotionl truth. For
Supposa if I should go up and down
these aisles I would not find in this
houso 50 people who had had no
trouble. But there oro som o of you
who havo especial trouble. God only
knows what you go through with.
Oh, how many bereavements, how
many poverties, how ninny persecu
tions, how many misrepresentations!
And now, my brother, you have tried
evorythlng olso, why do you not try
this ovcrgveon religion? It ls Just as
good for you now ns it was in tho
day of prosperity, lt ls better ?or
you. Perhaps some of you feel al
most like M?ckle Buckie, tho fisher
man, who was chldod ono flay be
cause lie kept on working, although
that very day ho buried MB child.
They came to him and snldi "It le
indecent for you to bo mending that
boat when this afternoon you burled
your child." And tho fisherman looked
up and said: "Slr, it ls rory easy for
y wu gentlefolks to stay tn tho house
with your handkerchief to your eyes
in grief; bvu, slr, ought I to let the
other five children starvo becousc one
of them la drowned? No, sir. We
maun work, wo maun Work, though
our hearts beat like this hammer."
You may hove had accumulation of
Borrow and misfortu?o. They como in
flookg, they como in herds, upon your
soul, and yoi I havo to tell you that
this religion can odnsolo you, that lt
can help you, that it can doliver you
if nothing else wi]]. Do you \cU me
that tho riches and tho gain of this
world can consol? you? Sow was it
with tho ecclesiastic who had such a
fondness for money that when he
was sick he ordered a basin of gold
pieocs brought to him, and he put his
gouty hands down among tho gold
pieces, cooling his hands off in them,
and tho rattle and rolling of these
fold pieces were his amusement and
entertainment. Ab, the gold and sil
ver, the honors, the emoluments of
this world,'*&re a poor eoloco for a
perturbed spirit. You want como
thing better than thia World can give.

My text brings "?. ono step further,
rt Bays: "Oo for?> Into the mount
and fctoh olive branches and pine
branches and myrtlo branches and
palm branches and branches of thick
trees." Now, you know very well
I moko this romark under tho head
of branohos of thick tree?-that a
booth or arbor modo of Blight
branches would not stand. Tho first
blast of tho tempest would prostrate
it. So then the booth or arbor must
have four stout poles to hold up tho
arbor or booth, and hence for the
building of the arbor for this world
wo must have stout branches of thick
troos. And so it is in the Gospel ar
bor. Blessed bo God that wo have a
brawny Christianity, not ono easily
upsot. Tho storms of life will come
upon us, and we want strong doc
trine; not only love, but justice; not
only invitation, but warning. It. is
a mighty Gospel; it is an Omnipotent
Gospel. These are the stout branches
of thick trees.
Well, my friends, you see I havo
omitted one or two points not bo
causo I forgot to present them, but
because I havo not time to present
them. I have shown you hero is the
olivo branch of peaco, hero ls the
pine branoh of evergreen Gospel con
solation, here the palm tree branoh
of usefulness and of victory, and here*
are tho stout branches of thick trees.
The Gospel arbor is done. The ah- la
aromatic of Heaven. The leaves
rustle with the gladness of God.
Como into the arbor. Como into the
booth. 1 went out at different times
with a fowler to the mountains to
catch pigeons, and wo made our
booth, ?nd wc sat in that booth sad
watched for the pigeons to como.
And we found flocks in the sky, and
after awhilo they dropped into the
not, and wo wero successful. So I
come now to tho door of this Gospel
booth. I look out. I see flocks of
souls flying hither and flying thither.
Oh, that they might come like clouds
and ns doves to the window! Como
into thc booth. Come into tho booib.

of spring come and tho female terra*
pins and turtles leave their beds in tho

Both terrapins nnd turtles seek tho
warm, sandy uplands near tho shore
to deposit their eggs. A hole is dug
several inches deep and from 20 to 30
inches Oblong, willie eggs are deposit
ed and then tho nest is lilied or covered
with sand. Having neatly piled tho
sand over tho eggs, tho turtle raises
herself just ns high ns is possible, then
comes down with n honvy thud on tho
sand. This is continued until tho sand
is quito hard, when tho eggs aro loft
for tho sun to hatch. In the mount imo
