Dr. Talmage Preaches on Springtime
Changes of Residence! I
In Which the Need of Patience
and Equipoise Is Set Forth,
Moving Inlto the Father's
This discourse of Dr. Talrcage is
pertinent at this time of year when many
people are moving from house to house,
and it teaches lessons of paticnce and
equipoise in very trying circumstances;
tcit, Philippians iv, 12, "I know both
how to be abased, ana I know how to
Happy Paul! Could you really accommodate
yourslf to all circumstances
in life ? Could you go up without pride,
and could you come down without exas
pcration? Teach the same lesson to us
We are at a season of the year when
vast DODulations in all our cities are
changing residence. Having been born
in a house, and having all our lives
lived in a house, we do not have full
appreciation of what a house is. It is
the growth of thousands of years. The
human race first lived in clefts of rocks,
the beasts of the field moving out of
-?^ the caverns to let the human race-move
in. The shepherds and the robbers
still live in caverns of the earth. The
troglodytes are a race which to this day
prefer the caverns to a house. They
are warm, they are large, thev are very
comfortable, they are less subject to
violent changes of heat and cold. We
come on along down in the history of
the race, and we ceme to the lodge,
which was a home built out of twisted
tree branches. We come further on
down in the history of ths race, and we
come to the tent, which was a home
built with a round pole ia the center
and skins of animals reaching out in all
directions, mats on the floor for the
people to sit on.
Time passed on, and the world, after
much invention, came to build a house,
which was a space sorreunded by broad
stones, against which the earth was
heaped fiom the outside. The roof I

coals and stones and ashes pounded together.
After awhile the porch was
born, after awhile the gate. Then hundreds
of years passed on, and in the
fourteenth century the modern chimney
was constructed. The old Hebrews
had openings in their houses from
which the smoke might escape if it pre- ;
ferred, but there was no inducement |
offered for it to leave until the modern

to allow the finger to be inserted for the
lifting of the latoh or the sliding of it.
There being no windows, the people
were dependent for light upon latticework,
over which a thin veil was drawn
down in time of winter to keep ont the
elements. Window glass was, so late
as two or three hundred years 8go, in
England and Scotland so great a luxury
that only the very wealthiest could

But the home planted in the old cave
or at the foot of a tent pole has grown
and enlarged and spread abroad untii
we have the modern house, with its
branches and roots and vast girth and
height and depth of comfort and accommodation.
Thank God for your home?not :
merely the house you live in now, but j
the house you were born in and the !
many houses you have resided in since
you began your earthly residence.
When you go home today, count ever
the number of those houses in which
~ ^ you have resided, and you will be surprised.
Once in awhile you will find a
man who lives in the house where he
was born and where his father was born
and his grandfather was born and his
great-grandfather was born, but that is
not one ont of a thousand cases. I
have not been more perambulator than
snost people, bui I was amazed when I
came to coant up the number of residences
I have occupied, The fact is,
there is in this world no sneh thing as
permanent residence.

and all those palaces and mansions
had either changed occupants or wanted
to change. Take up the directory of
any oity of England or America and see
how few people live where they lived
15 years ago. There is n& such thing

for another place or is compelled to

race invented the railroad and the ;
steamboat in order more rapidly te get
