In Abyssinia the duties of priests
"consist in reading the prayers,
chantinr, administering the sacra
ment and dancing; the latter being
in.ulgeJ ia during religious proces
sionT." That the dancing is in this
case imported into the quasi-Christian
riigion by adoption from some pre
vious religion (a like adoption being
common with Roman Catholic mis
sionaries) is a conclusion supported
by an instance from a remote region.
Describing the usages of the Pueblos,
"The eachinas or sacred dances
which were in vogue before Columbus,
still survive; but now they are applied
to the festivals of the church, and are
presmaed to be as grateful to Tata
Dios as to the Sun."
Ent the way in which singing and
dancing before the visible ruler differ
entiate into singing and dancing be
fore the ruler no longer visible, is best
reen in the early records of civilized
r-ces. To the above illustrations fur
nishedl by Hebrew history may be
a-ded various others. Thus I Samuel
x. 5, tells of "a company of prophets
coming down from thehigh place with
a psaltery, and a tabret, and a pipe,
aind a harp before them;"and, accord
ing to some translators, dancing and
singing. Again in I Chronicles ix.,
S, we read of certain Levites that
"these are the singers, chief of the
fathers of the Levites." And in Psalm
cxlix, there is the exhortation: "Let
them praise His namein the dance;
let them sing praises unto Him with
the timbrel and harp ;" worship which
was joined with the execution of "ven
geance upon the heathen,"--Popular
Science Monthly. --
I* A Three-Week Sleep.
A colored woman in Guthrie, Okla
homa, awakened a few days ago out of
a sound sleep that ha] lasted a little
more than three weeks. Duting that
period all the efforts of physicians and
others to awaken her were unavailing.
When she awoke she quietly got up
and started about the house as though
nothing unusual had occurred. She
did not know she had been asleep
longer than over night, anl though
the doctors were able to give her but
very little noarish'ment during her
long slecp. she did no" seem in any

but she would not relent. This is the cause
of the tragedy.
He left a lote identifying himself, and say

THE EYE OF GOD.
DR. TALMAGE'S SUNDAY SER31ON
All Eternity Past and All Eternity to
Come on That-Retina.
Tzzr: "He that formed tne eye, shall He
not see?"-Psalm xciv., 9.
The imperial organ of the human system
Is the eye. All up and down the Bible God
honors it. extols it, illustrates it or arraigns
it. Five hundred and thirty-four times it is
mentioned in the Bible. Omnipresence -
"the eyes of the Lord are in overy plaoe."
Divinecarp-"as the apple of the ev." The
clouds-'the eyelids of the mornin. Ir
reverence-"the eye that mocketh at its
father." Pride-"Oh. how lofty are their
eyes!" Inattention-"the fool's eye in the
ends of the earth." Divine inspection- -
"wheels full of eyes." Suddenness-"in the
twinkling of an eye at the last trump." 01
ivetic sermon-"the light of the body is the
eye." This morning's texi: "He that formed
the eye,'shall He not see?" The surgeons, the
doctors. the anatomists and the physiolo
gists understand much of the glories of the
two great lights of the human face, but the
vast multitudes go on from cradle to grave
without any appreciation of the two great
masterpieces of the Lord God Almighty. If
God had lacked anything of infinite wisdom,
He would have failed in creating the human
eye. We wander through the earth trying
to se- wonderful sights, but the most won
derful sight that we ever see is not so won
derful as the instruments through which we
It has been a strange thing to me for forty
years that some scientist with enough elo

If I refer to the physiological facts suw

since it excels all others in structure and in
adaptation. The eyes of fish andreptiles and
moles and bats are very simple things. be
cause they have not much to do. There
are insects with 100 eyes, but the 100
eyes have less faculty than the human eyes.
The black beetle swinming the summer
pond has two eyes under water and two eyes
above the water, but the four insectile are
not equal to the two human. Man, placed
at the head of all living creatures, must have
supreme equipment, while the blind fish in
the Mammoth Cave of Kentucky have only
an undeveloped organ of sight, an apology
for the eye, which, if through some crevii3
of the mountain they should get into the
sunlight. might be developed into positive
eyesight. In the first chapter of Genesis we
find that God, without any consultation.
ereated the light, created the trees, created
I he fish, created the fowl. but when he wa
about to make man he called a convention of
divinity, as though to imply that all the
powers of Godhead were to be enlisted in the
achievement. "Let us make man." Put a
whole ton of emphasis on that word "us."
"Let us make man." And if God called a
called a convention of divinity to create man
I think the two great questions in that con
ference were how to create a soul and how
to make an appropriate window for that em
peror to look out of.
See how God honored the eye before He
created it. He cried, until chaos was irradi
ated with the utterance. "Let there be
light!" In other words, before He intro
duced man into this temple of the world Ho
illuminated it, prepared it for the eyesiirht.
Anid so, after the last human eye has been
destroyed in the final demolition of the
world, stars are to fall, and the sun is to
cease its shining, and the moon is to turn
into blood. In-other words, after the hu
man eyes are no more to be profited by their
shining, the chandeliers of heaven are to be
turned out. God, to educate and to bless
and t o help the human eye, set in the mantel
of heaven two lamps-a gold lamp and a
silver lamp-the one for the day and the
other for the night. To show how God hen-I
ors the eye, look at the two halls built for
the residence of the eyes, seven bones mak
ing the wall for each eye, the seven bones
curiously wrought together. Kingly palace
of ivory is considered rich, but the halls for
the residence of the human eye are richer by
so much as human bone is more sacred than
elephantine tusk. See how God honored
the eyes when He made a roof for them, so
that the sweat of toil should not smart them
and the rain dashing against the forehea:1I
should not drip into them. The eyebrows
not bending over the eye, but reaching to
the right and to the left, so that the rain and
the sweat should be compelled to drop upon
the cheek, instead of falling into this divine
ly protected human eyesight. See how God
honored the eye in the fact presented by
anatomists and physiologists that there are
803 contrivances in every eye. For window
shutters, the eyelids opening and closing

structed that they have their selection as to
what shall be admitted, saying to the dust,
"Siay out." and saying to the light, "Crin'
iL.' For inside curtains the iris, or pupeil of
the eye, according as the light Is greater or
less, contracting or dilating.
The eye of the owl is blindl in tho day
time, the eyes of some creatures are blind at
night, but the human eye so mnarvelous~y
constructerd can see bo0th by day and by
night. Many of the other creatures of GaU
can move the eye only from side to side,
but the human eye so marvelo'tsly "oDi
structed has one muscle to lift the eye, and
another muscle to lower the eye, and an
other muscle to roll it to the right, and an
other muscle to roll it to the left, andan
other muscle passing through a pulley to
turn it round and round-an elaborate gear
ing of six muscles as perfect as God could
make them. There also is the retina,
gathering the rays of light and passing the
visual impression along the optic nerve,
about the thickness of the lampwick-pass
ing the visual impression on to the- senorism
and on into the soul. What a delicate lens,
what an exquisite screen, what soft cushions,
what wonderful chemistry of the human
eye! The eye, washed by a slow stream ol
moisture whether we sleep or wake, rolling
imperceptibly over the pebble of the eye and
emptying into a bone of the nostril. A eon

readjusts the telescope until he gets it to the

I used to think that everything we soe was
crated for the use or the pleasureof man,and
Ihat even the stars were placed in the heavens
to please ui. Bt I don't think so now. The
birds do not sing for us alone. Even the spar
row that falls to the ground has the sympathy
of its Crr at r.
Buit if a man wishes to ponder upon his in'ig
nificanee let him try to grazp the extent of tho
univ, r-e. Sir Isobert Ball, of Cambridge, say,
in a cecnt lecture on the stars, that there. is
no limit to tl-e universe, no outside boundary
-no: pace beyond the etrs-no space where
theie are no s:ars, and he tries to bring this
idea within our reach by telling us that clec
tric:ty travels on the wires 180.00 miles in a
secon:1 and a message could be sent seven
times around the ear:h in the tick of a clock,
and to the moon in a second and a half and to
the sun in eight minute,, but it wonld take
four years to send a telegram to Alpha Centan
ri. the star that is nearest the earth. Over our
heads and visible to the naked ere are stars so
remote that if iwhen Columbus discovere I
America he had telegraphed the news to them
the message would not yet have reache- them.
But the tekscope at the Lick observatory has
I rought stars into view so u terly distant that
if the wise men whot visited the Savior at hiis
l icth had telegraphed the glad tidings to these
stars tl:e message would still be going on and
on ancd on at the speed of 180,000 miles every
se c cud and not have gotten there.
Well, tha' settles it. I don't want to try to
think any farther than that. I'm afraid it
would strain my mind-like Cabe said when he
re fused to shoot at a ci quirrel in the t op of a
very high pine--said be~ didn't like to strain
And now the astronomers declare that this so

compared with the other solar systems that the

except to tell wheni to make soap and kill hogs

wout need any moonlight.

ayes of cherubim, eyes of seraphimi, eyes of
archangel, eyes of God. Wa may not be
able to see the habitants of other vorlds,
but perhaps they may be able to see us. We
have not optical instruments enough to
desery them; perhaps they have optic:l in
struments strong enough to descry us. The
mo!e cannot see the eagle mid sky, but tho
eagle mid sky can see the mole mid grass.
We are able to see mountains and caverns of
another world. but perhaps the inhabitants
of other worlds can see the towers of our
cities, the 11ash of our seas, the marching of
our lroce ssions, the white robes of our wed
dings, the black scarfs of our obsequies.
It passes out from the guess into the posi
tive when we are told in the Bible that the
inhabitants of other worlds do came as con
voy to this. Are they not all ministering
spirits sent forth to minister to those who
shall be heirs of salvation'? But human in
speetion, and angelic inspection, and stellar
inspection, and lunar inspection, and solar
inspection are tame compared with the
thoughlt of divine inspection. "You can

"in the old schoolhouse prayer meettng at
Bound Brook you said in your prayer,
'Thou, God, seest me,' and I hal no peace
under the eye of Gad until I became a Chris
tian." Hear it. "rhe eyes of the Lord are
in every place." "His eyelids try the chil
dren or men." "H'is eyes were as a ilame of
Ire," "I will guide thee with Mine eye."
Oh, the eye of God, so full of pity, so full of
power, so full of Iove, so full of indigna
tion, so full of compassion, so full of mercy!
Ho w it peers through the darkness! How it
outshines th dlay! How it glares upon the
orender! How it beams on the penitent
soni! Talk acout the human eye as being
indescribably wonderful! How much more
wonderful tee great, searching, over whelm
ing eye of God! All eternity past and alU
ternity to e~cm' on that retina.
The eyes with which we look into ea::h

written twice on your race and twice on
mine, unless 'through casualty one or both

It seCs our sorrows to assuage them, sees
our perplexities to disentangle them, sees

script a star calling your attention to a foot
note or explanation. That star the printer
icalls an aisterisk. But all the stars of the
night are asterisks calling your attention to
Gd-an all observing God. Our every
nerve a divine handwriting. Our every
muscle a pulley divinely swung. Our every
bone sculptured with divine suggestion. Our
very eye a reflection of the divine eye. Gad

What a stupendous thing to live! What a
stpendous thing to die! No such thing as
idden trangression. A dramatic advocate
in olden times, at night in a courtroom, per
suaded of the innocence of his client charged
with murder and of the guilt of the witness
who was trying to swear the poor man's life
way-that advocate took up two bright
lamps and thrust them close up to the face of
the witness and cried, "May it please the
court and gentlemen of th-' "ry, behold the
murderer!" and the man, ).Lactically under
that awful glhre, confessed that he was the
criminal instead of the man arraigned at the
bar. Oh. rmy friends, our most hididen
sin is under a brighter light than that.
It is under the burning eye of God. He is
not a blind giant stumbling through the
heavens. Ho is not a blind monarch feeling
for the step of Ils chariot. Are you wronged?
He sees it. Are yeol poor? He sees it. Have
yu domestic pertuirbationi of which the
world knows nothing? He sees it. "Oh,"
you say, "my affairs are so insignilieant I
can't realize that Go-I sees ime and sees m3
affairs." ('an you see the point of a pin?
Can you sea the eye of a needle? Can you
see a mote in the sunbeam? Andl has Gel
given you that piower of mrinuite observation,
and doees Ho not possess it Himiself? "He
that farmed the eye', shrill He not set'?"
But you say': ."Ged i:s in onie worl and I
am in another world. Ho seemis so faur ,uff
fromi me I don't really think He sees what isI
going on in my life." Can you see the sun
95000,00 ) miles away, and d' you not think
God has as prolonged vision? Bitt you say,
"There are phases of my life and there are
color-shades of color-lin my annoyances
and my vexations that I don't think Go:1ean
understand." Does not God gather up all
the colors and alt the shades of color in the
rainbow? And do you suppose there is army
phase or any shade in your life He has not
gathered up in His own heart? Besides that I
want to tell you it will soon all be over, this
struggle. That eye of yours. so exquisitely
fashioned aund strung. and hinged and
roofed, will before long be closed in the
last slumber. Loving hands wvill smtooth
down the silken fringes. S' H" giveth His
beloved sleep. A legend of St. Fret'-'bert is
that his mother was blinid. and hi' was so
sorely pitiful for the misfortune that one dav
in sympathy he kissed her eyes, and by mira
eleshe saw everytning. But it is not a legend
when I tell you that aill the liind eyes of the
