Dr. Talmage on the Rewards of i
Faithful Endeavor. E
In Overcoming the Obstacles j
Which Beset His Followers. J
Satisfaction in the Comple- j
tion of Good Work. i
In this disoourse Dr. Talmage shows ;
in an nnnsual way the aBtagonisms |
that Christ overcame and finds a balsam ,
for all wounded hearts; test, John xvii, ]
4, "I haye finished the work which I
thou gavest me to do."
There is a profound satisfaction in
the completion of anything we have '
undertaken. We lift the capstone with
exultation, while, on the other hand, :
there is nothing more disappointing 1
than after having toiled in a certain di- ,
rection to find that our time is wasted :
and our investment profitless. Christ ;

the whole world might, if it chose, \
mount into heaven. He did it. The ,
foul mouthed crew who attempted to ,
tread ou him could not extinguish the j
sublime satisfaction which he expressed j
when he said, "I have finished the j
work which thou gavest me to do./ (
Alexander th6 Great was wounded, ,
and the doctors could not medicate his
wounds, and he seemed to be dying, \
and in his dream the sick man saw a j
plant with a peculiar flower, and he i
dreamed that that plant was put upon j
his wound and that immediately it was 1
cured. And Alexander, waking frorc <
his dream, told this to the physician :
wandered out until he found just the ;
kind of plant which the sick man had ,
described, brought it to him, and the
wound was healed. Well, the human
race had been hurt with the ghastliest ,
of all wound?that of sin. It was the ,
business of Christ to bring a balm for
that wound?the balm of divine res to- 1
ration. In carrying this business to a
successful issue the difficulties were
In many of our plans we have our
friends to help us; some to draw a
sketch, of the piau, others to help us in {
the execution. But Christ fought
every inch of his way against bitter
hostility and amid circumstances all
calculated to depress and defeat. ;
In the first place, his worldly occupation
was against him. I find that he

know as well as I do that in order to

aA weary body is an unfavorable adjunct
to a toiling mind. Yon, whose
life is purely meohanical, if you were
called to the upbuilding of a kirgdom,
or the proclamation of a new; code of
morals, or the starting of a revolution
whioh shonld upturn all nations, could
get some idea of the incoherence of
Christ's occupation with his heavy
In his father's shop no more intercourse
was necessary than is ordinarily
necessary in bargaining with men who
have work to do; yet Christ, with hands
hard from use of tools of trade, was
called forth to become a public speaker, j
to preach -in the face of mobs, while (
?j ?u ii..:.
some wept ana huuio emuu*. wcu nova j
and some gnashed upoa him with their
teeth and many wanted hiia out of the
way. To address orderly and respect- ;
fnl assemblages is not so ejisy as it may ;
seem, but it requires more energy and
more force and more concentration to f
address an exasperated mob. The vil- (
lagers of Nazareth heard the pouudiDg ,
of his hammer, but all the ?v ?;e reaches ,
of eternity were to hear the stroke o* j
his spiritual upbuilding.
So also his habits of dress and diet (
were against him. The mighty men of ,
Christ's time did not appejir in apparel |
without trinkets and adornments. None i
of the Caesars would have appeared in
citizen's apparel. Yet hero was a man, ?
liere was a professed King, wno always ]
wore the same coat. Indeed, it was
far from shabby, for after he had worn
it a long while the gamble:*s thought it
worth raffling about, but still it was
far from being an imperial robe. It
was a coat that any ordinary man might
have worn on an ordinary occasion.
Neither was there any pretension in
his diet No cupbearer with golden
chalice brought him wine to drink. On (
the seaslore he ate fiah, first having <
broiled it himself. No one fetched j
him water to drink: but, tending over ^
the well in Samaria, he begged a drink. ?
He sat at only one banquet and that ?
not at all sumptuous, for to relieve the -1
awkwardness of the host one of the i
PTiAHtfi had to nrenare wine for the -
company. J (
Other kings ride in a chariot; he i
walked. Other kings as they advance <
have heralds ahead and applauding sub- c
jects behind; Christ's retinue was made t
up of sunburned fishermen. Other <
kings sleep under embroidered canopy; c

His poverty was against him. It re- '
quires money to build great enterprises, t
Men of means are afraid of a penniless ?
projector, lest a loan be demanded. It t
requires money to print books, to build '
institutions, to pay instructors. No t

"Why," they said, "who is to pay for ^
this new religion? Who is to charter c
the ships to carry the missionaries? a
"Who is to pay the salaries of the teach- \
ers? Shall wealthy, established religion 3
be discomfited by a penniless Christ?" 1
The consequence was that most of the 1
people that followed Christ had noth- 1
ing to lose. Affluent Joseph of Arima- c
thea buried Christ, but he risked no e
social position in doing that. It is
always safe to bury a dead man. Zac- f
cheus risked no wealth or social posi- s
tion in following Christ, but took a posi- a
tion in a tree to look down as he passed, t
Nioodemus, wealthy Nicocemns, risked t
nothing of social position in following a
Christ, for he skulled by night to find i
him, y
All this was against Christ. So the C
fact that he was not regularly graduated v
was against him. If a man come with t

An- Union:
liver jn regard to the action of the Union T
ess- board of health I deem it proper to o
ewly make a statement in order to keep the a
per record straight. Since I have been
es of Grovemor I have made it a rule to refer j(
to each deDartment ef the State Govern- t
5,UUU ? * ~ . . , ,
j qqq ment all matters pertaining to that de- P
',000 partment. All cases of smallpox re- x
!,000 ported to me have been promptly re- j
ferred to Dr. James Evans, as secretary f
,J of the State board of health, for his s
' 500 consideration and action. When I reeeived
the report of the Union board of *
t,000 health calling my attention to the cir- ?

j'ooo solutions passed by the Union board of t
health, stating that continued enforce- *

j'OOO health is impossible because of lack b
J OOO Power an(* funds, and dangerous be- o
cause of the inflamed opposition, I sent E

; *500 "THere is considerable diseatisfac- t

/j \J\J\J - - ? w
j 000 011 Htk of May made the following c
j'ooo report: s
[ 000 "IQ my investigation of tho small- t

>'000 have found three families with the dis- e
j'ooo ea3e Milltown, wbich has a popula- ?
j OOO t*011 about 3,000, and is the locality F
j'ooo *n which the operatives of the Union t

imperative to prevent the further spread a

population of the town have been re- t
) 000 centJy and in the last two or three years t
j'000 vacoinated. I have arranged for the t

who are not protected. I have the assurance
in the prosecution of the work h
