Dr, Taimage Preaches on Common
Duties and Rewards.
and Cheer For Those Who Toil
and Struggle. Heroes and
Heroines Everyday Ex
Dr. Talmage, who is now preaching
to large audiences in the great cities oi'
England and Scotland, sends this discourse,
in which he shows that manj
who in this world pass as of little importance
will in the day of final readjustment
be crowned with high honor:

* endure hardness."
Historians are not slow to acknowledge
the merits of great military chieftains.
We have the full length portraits
of the Cromwells, the Washingtons,
the Napoleons and the Wellingtons
of the world. History is not written
in black ink, but red ink of human
blood. The gods of human ambition
do not drink from bowls made out of
silver or gold or precious stones, but
out of the bleached skulls of the fallen.

acknowledged?those who faced no
guns, blew no bugle blast, conquered
no cities, ohained no captives to their
chariot wheels and yet in the great day
of eternity will stand higher than some
of those whose names startled the nations,
and serph and rapt spirit and
archangel will tell their deeds to a
listening universe. I mean the heroes
of common, everyday life.
In this roll, in the first place, I find
all the heroes of the sickroom. When
satan had failed to overcome Job, he
said to God, "Put forth thy hand and
toush his bones and his flesh, and he
will curse thee to thy face." Satan
had found out that which we have all
found out, that sickness is the greatest
test of one's character. A man who
can stand that can stand anything. To
be shut in a room as fast as though it
were a baa tile; to be so nervous you
can no i enaure me tap o i a cuuu a iuui,
to have luscious fruit, which tempts
the appetite of the robust and healthy,
excite our loathing and disgust when it
first appears on the platter; to have the
rapier of pain strike through the side
or across the temples like a razor or to
put the foot into a vise or throw the
whole body into a blaze of fever, yet
there have been men and women, but
more women than men, who have
cheerfully endured this hardness.

that rasped the nerves and tore the
muscles and paled the checks and
stooped the shoulders. By the dim
light of the sickroom taper they saw on
their wall the picture of that land where
the inhabitants are never sick. Through
the dead silence of the night they heard
the chorus of the angels.
The cancer ate away her life from

sixpence. They toiled on until they
died. They had no funeral eulogium,
but, in the name of my . God, this day,
I enroll their names among those of
whom the world was not worthy. He
roes of the needle! Heroes of the sewing
machine! Heroes of the attic! Heroes
of the cellar! Heroes and heroines!
Bless God for them!
Society today is strewn with the
wrecks of men who, under the northeast
storm of domestic infelicity, have been
driven on the rocks. There are tens of
thousands of drunkards today, made
such by their wives. That is not
poetry; that is prose. But the wrong
is generally in the opposite direction.
You would not have to go far to find a
wife whose life is a perpetual martyrdom?something
heavier than a stroke
of the fist, unkind words; staggering
home at midnight and constant mal
treatment, which have left her only a
wreck of what she was on that day
when in the midst of a brilliant assemblage
the vows were taken, and full
organ played the wedding march, and
the carnage rolled away with the benediction
of the people. What was the
burning of Latimer and Ridley at the
stake compared with this? Those men
soon became unconscious in the lire.
but there is a 30 years' martyrdom, a
50 years' putting to death, yet uncomplaining.
