The Hamptons. Aug. 29.—The Rev.
Dr. T. DeWitt Taimaze’s text to-day was
Isaiah xl., 23: “It is He that slttelh upon
the circle of the earth.” Following is the
While yet people thought that the world
was flat, and thousands of years before
they found out that It was round, Isaiah
in my text intimated the shape ot it! God
sitting upon the circle oi the earth. The
most oeauiiful figure in all geometry is
the circle. God made the universe on the
plan ol a circle. There are in the natural
world straight lines, angles, paralleio
crams, diagonals, quadrangles; but these
evidently are not God's favorites. Almost
everywhere where you find Him geome-
Arizlng, vou find the circle domi
nant, and It not the circle then
the curve, which is a cir
cle that died young. If It bad lived
long enough it would have been a foil orb,
la periphery. An ellipse is a circle pressed
onl v a little too bard at the sides. Giant’s
Causeway in Ireland shows what God
thinks of mathematics. There are over
65,000 columns of rooks—octagonal, hex
agonal. pentagonal. These rocks seem to
have been made by rule and by compass.
Everv artist ha* his moulding-room where
he may make fiity shapes, hut he chooses
one shape as preferable to all the others.
1 will not say that the Giant’s Causeway
was the world’s moulding-room, but 1 do
sav, out of a great many figures God
seems to have selected the circle as the
best: “It Is He that sitteth on the circle
of the earth.” The stars iu a circle, the
moon in a circle, the sun in a circle, the
universe in a oirole, and the throne ol God
the centre of that cirole.
When men build churches they ought
to imitate the ideas of the great Archi
tect and put the audience in a oircle,
knowing that the tides of emotion roll
more easily that way than in straight
lines. Six thousand years ago God flung
this world out of His right band; but He
did not throw it out in a straight line, but
curvilinear, with a leash of love holding
it so as to bring it back again. The
world started from his hand pure and
Edenlc. It has been rolling on through
regions of moral ioe and distemper. How
long it will roll God only knows; but it
will in due time make oomplete oircuit,
and come back to the place where it
Btarted—the hand ol God—pure and
The history of the world goes in a cir
cle. Why is it that the shipping in our
day ia improving so rapidly? It is be
cause men are imitating the old model ol
Noah’s ark. A ship carpenter gives that as
bis opinion. Although so much derided
by small wits, that ship of Noah’s time
beat the Etruria and the Germanic, of
which we boast so much. Where Is the
ship on the sea to-day that could outride
a deluge in which tbs heaven and the
earth were wrecked, landing all the paa
seneers in safety, two of each kind of liv
ing creatures, thousands of species. Po
mology will go on with its achievements
until after many centuries the world will
have plums and pears equal to the Para
disaical. The art of gardening will grow
for centuries, and alter the Downings
and Mitchells of the world
have done their best, in the far future the
art of gardening will come up to the ar
borescenoe of the year one. If the makers
of colored glass go on improving they may
in some centuries be able to make some
thing equai to the east window of York
Minster, which was built in 1290. Weare
six centuries behind these artists, but the
world must keep on toiling until it shall
make the complete circuit and come up
to the skill of those very men. If the
world continues to improve in masonry
we shall nave alter a while, perhaps after
the advance of centuries, mortar equal
to that which I saw in the wall ol an ex
humed English city, built in the time of
the Romans s'xteen hundred years ago—
that mortar to-day as good as
tne day in which it wmb made, having out
lasted the brick and the stone. 1 say, after
hundreds of years Masonry may advance
to that point. If the world stands long
euougb we may have a oitv as large as
they had in old times. Babylon, five
times the sire ol London. You go
into the potteries of England and you find
them making cups and vases alter the
style of the cups and vasesexhumed from
Pompeii. The world is not going back.
O, no! but it is swinging in a cirole and
will come back to the styles of pottery
known so long ago as the days of Pom
fieii. The world must keep on orogress
ng until it makes the complete circuit.
The curve is in the right direction. The
curve will keep on until it becomes a cir
Well, now, my friends, what is true in
the material universe is true in God’s
moral government and spiritual arrange
ment. Tbat is tbe meaning of Ezekiel’s
wheel. All commentators agree in saying
that the wneel means God’s providence.
But a wheel is of no use unless it turn,
and if it turn it turns arouud, and if it
turn around it moves in a circle. What
then? Are we parts of a great iron ma
obine whirled around whether we will or
not, the victims of inexorable fate? No!
Bo tar from that, I shall show you that
we ourselves start the circle of good or
bad actions, and that it will surely come
around again to us unless by
divine intervention it be hindered.
Those baa or good actions may make the
circuit of many years; but come baok to us
tney will as certainly as that God sits on
the circle of tbe earth. Jezebel, the worst
woman of the Bible, slew Naboth because
sbe wanted bis vineyard. Whiletfie dogs
were eating the body of Naboth, Elisha,
tbe prophet, put down bie compass and
marked a circle from those dogs clear
around to the dog* tbat should eat .the
body of Jezebel, the murderess. “Impos
sible!” tbe people said, “that will never
happen.” Who is tbat being flung out of
the palace window? Jezebel. A few
hours after they came around, hoping to
bury her. They find only the palms of
her bands and the skull. The dogs that
devoured Jezebel and the dogs that de
voured Naboth! Oh, what a swift, what
an awful circuit!
But it is sometimes the case that this
circle sweeps through a century, or
through many centuries. The world
started with a theocracy for government;
tbat is, God was the President and Em
peror of the world. People got tired of a
theocracy. They said: “We don’t want
God directly interfering with the affairs
of the world; give us a monarchy.” Tbe
world bad amouarchy. From a monarchy
it is going to have a limited monarchy .
Aftdr" awbile tbe limited monarchy will
be given up and tbe republican form of
government will beeverywhere dominant
and recognized. Then the world will get
tired of fM republican iortn ol govern
ment and It will have an anarohy, which
Is no government at all. And then, all
nations finding out that man is not capa
ble of righteously governing man, will
cry out again for a theocracy and say :
“Let God onme back and conduct the af
fairs of the world.” Every step—mon
archy, limited monarchy, republicanism,
anarchy, only different steps between tbe
first theocracy and tbe last theocracy, or
(segments of tbe great circle of the earth
on which God sits.
But do not become impatient beoause
you caunot see tbe curve of events, and
therefore conclude tbat God’s government
is going to break down. History tells us
that lit tbe making of tbe Pyramids it
took two thousand men two years
to drag one great stone lrom
tbe quarry and put it into the
Pyramids. Well. now. U men.
short-lived, can afford to work so slowly
as that, cannot God in the building of the
eternities afford to wait? W'nat though
God should take .ten thousand years to
draw a circle? Shall we take our little
watch wnich we have to wind up every
night lest it run dowt;. and hold it up
beside the clock of eternal ages? If. ac
cording to the Bible, a thousand years
are in God's sight as one day, then ac
cording to that calculation the six thou
sand years of the world’s existence has
been only to God as from Monday to Sat
But it is often the case that the rebound
Is quicker, and the circle is sooner com
pleted. You resolve that you will do
what good you can. in one week you put
a word ol counsel in the heart of a Sab
bath school child. During that same
week you gave a letter of introduction
to a young man struggling in busi
ness. During the same week you
made an exhortation in a prayer meeting.
It is all gone; you will never hear of it
perhaps, you think. A ietv Years after a
man comes up to you and says: “You
don’t know me, do you?” You say: “No,
1 don’t remember ever to have seen you.”
“ Why,” he says, “I was in the sabbath
school class over which you were the
teacher. One Sunday you invited me to
Christ. I accepted the offer. You see
that church with two towers yonder?”
“Yes,” you av. He says: “l'ns.t is where
I preach.” Or: “Do you see that
Governor’s house? That is where I live.”
One day a man comes to you and says:
“Good morning.” You look at him and
say: “Why. you have the advantage of
me; 1 cannot place you.” He says:
“Don't you remember, thirty years ago,
giving a letter of introduction to a younz
man—a letter of introduction to a prom
inent merchant?” “Yes, yea; Ido.” He
says: “I am the man. That was my
first step toward a fortune; but I have
retired from business now, and am giv
ing my time to philanthropies and public
interests. Come up to my country place
and see me.” Or a man comes to you
and says: “I want to introduce myself
to you. I went into a prayer meeting
some years ago. 1 sat back by the door.
You arose to make an exhortation. That
talk changed the course of my lile, and it
I ever get to heaven, under God. I will
owe mv salvation to you.” In only ten,
twenty or thirty years, the circle swept
out and swept back again to your own
But sometimes it is a wider circle and
does not return for a great while. I saw
a bill ol expenses for burning Latimer
and Ridley. The bill ot expenses says:
One load of fir fagots 3s. Id.
(Jartage of four loads of;woood 2s.
item, a post Is. Id.
Item, two chains 3s. Id.
Item, two staples 6d.
Item, four laborers 2s. Sd.
That was cheap fire, considering all the
clroumstances; but it kindled a iigbt
which shone all around the world, and
around the martyr spirit; and out from
that burning of Latimer and Ridley rolled
the oircle, wider and wider, starting other
oircles, convolutlng, overrunning, cir
cumscribing, overarching all heaven—a
Btn what is true of the good is just as
true of the bad. You utter a slander
against your neighbor. It has gone forth
from your teeth. It will never come back,
you think. You have done the man all
the mischief you can. You rejoice to see
him wince. You say: “Didn’t 1 give it to
him?” Tnat word has gone out, that
slanderous word, on its poisonous and
blasted way. Y'ou think it will never
do you any barm. But lam watching
that word, and I see it beginning to curve,
and it curves around, and it is aiming at
your heart. You bad better dodge it.
You cannot dodge it. It rolls into vour
bosom, and after it rolls in a word of an
old book which says: “With what meas
ure ye mete, it shall be measured to you
You maltreated an aged parent. You
begrudge him the room in your house.
You are impatient of bis whimsicalities
and garrulity. It makes you mail to bear
him tell the same story twice. Y'ou give
him food he cannot masticate. Y’ou wish
he was away. You wonder if he is going
to live forever- He will he gone very
soon. His steps are shorter and shorter.
He is going to stop. But God ha? an ac
count to settle with you on that subject.
After awbile your eye will be dim and
your gait will halt, and the sound of the
grinding will be low, and you will tell the
same story twice, and your children will
wonder if you are going to live forever,
and wonder U you will never be taken
away. They called you “father” once;
now call you “the old man.” If you live
a few years longer they will call you “the
old chap.” What are those rough words
with which your children are ac
costing you? They are the echo of
the very words you used in the ear of your
old father forty years ago. What, istbat
which you are trying to chew but find it
uumasticable, aiid your jaws aoiie as you
surrender the attempt? Perhaps it may
be the gristle which you gave to your
father for his breakfast forty years ago.
A gentleman passing along the street saw
a son dragging his father into the street
bv the hair of the head. The gentleman,
outraged at this brutal oonduct, was
about to punish the offender when the old
man arose and said: ‘'Don’t hurt him;
it’s all right. Forty years ago this morn
ing I dragged out my father by the hair
of his head.” It is a circle. My father
lived into the eighties, and be bad a very
wide experience, and he said that mal
treatment of parents was always punished
in this world. Other sins rpay be ad
journed to the next world, but maltreat
ment of parents is punished in this world.
The circle turns quickly, very quickly.
Oh, what a stupendous thought that
the good and the evil we start come
back to us. Do you know that the .Judg

the oircles join, the good and the bad we
have done coming back to us, unless Di

at your call. I can bring twenty pas
sages of Scripture to prove that when
God, for Christ’s sake, forgives a man, the
sins oi bis past life never come back. The
wheel may roll on and roll on. but you
take your position behind the cross, and
the wheel strikes the cross and it Is shat

circle into the perpendicular, falling at
right angles with complete oblivion. For

a man can do is, after some difficulty Uas
been settled, to bring it up again; and
God will not be so mean as that. God’s
memory is migbty enough to hold all the
events of the ages, but there is one thing
that is sure to slip His memory, one thing
He is sure to forget, and that is pardoned

But do not make the mistake of think
ing that this doctrine ot the cirole stops
with this life; it rolls on through heaven.
Y’ou might quote in opposition to me what
St. John says about the city of heaven.
He says it “lietb four square.” That
does seems to militate against this idea;
bat yoH know there is many a square
house tnat has a family circle facing each
other and in a oircle moving, aud I can
prove that this is so in regard to heaven.
St. John says: “1 beard the voice of many
angels round about the throne and the
beasts and the elders.” And again he
says: “There was a rainbow round about
th<* throne.” The two former instakoas a
circle; the last, either a cirole or a semi
circle. The seats facing eaoh other, the
angels facing each other, the men facing
each other. Heaven an ampbithwatre of
glory. Circumference of patriarch, and
prophet, and apostle. Circumference of
Scotch Covenanters and Theban legion,
and Albizenses. Circumferences of the
good of all ages. Periphery oi splendor
unimagined and indescribable. A circle!
But every circumference must have a
centre, and wbat is the centre of this
heavenly circumference? Christ. His
all the glory, His all the praise, His all
the crowns. All Heaven wreathed into a
garland round aoout Him. Take off the
imperial sandal from His foot, and behold
the scar oi the spike. Lift the coronet of
dominion from His brow, and see where
was the laceration of the briars. Coiue
closer, all Heaven. Narrow the circle
around His great heart. O. Christ, the
Saviour! O, Christ, the man! O, Christ,
the God! Keep Thy throne forever,
seated on the circle ot the earth, seated
on the circle of the Heaven!

New York, Aug. 28.—1 t is hinted that
there will be a general snubbing in the
Union and Knickerbocker clubs of the en
terprising Lord Lonsdale if be accom

try. as he has publicly declared he will,
“to look alter the money he has invested
in the blarsted show, you know.” Lord,
Lonsdale has many friends in the clubs
named, and under ordinary circumstances
he would be a welcome guest, especially at
tbe Uuiou Club, which, notwithstanding
the fact that it has often Deep shabbily
treated by them not only while here but
on their return homo, always secures as
guests the visiting nobility." The troubles
of the Union with its noble guests would

else boldly violate the rules, knowing
they are beyond the reach of the Govern

dissipated Lord Mandeville would have
disrupted the Union Club had his three
months’ card run into a six
months’ lease. The member who Intro
duces the delinquent is responsible for his
debts, and until quite recently it was held
tbat the card was irrevocable. An ex
ception which will establish a precedent
was made some months azo in the case of
a brother ot M. Capel, whoso card to the
Union was revoked beoauso, in the lan
guage of the old comedy, he always took
the club for a public house. It is likely,
however, that Lord Lonsdale will be able
to get into some of the theatrical clubs.
There is much discontent in the Uni
versity Club between the younger ele
ment and the elders. Whiie all admit
that their club house (the old Union
League’s, the palatial mansion that
Leonard Jerome built for his private resi
dence In his palmy days) is the finest in
the city the discontent is tbat it is off the
“avenue” (Fifth avenue), and in such a
retired neighborhood tbat the members
look out of the windows for passing pretty
girls and never see a procession, since tbe
Coaching Club no longer starts from
there excepting, indeed, Barnum’s an
uual parade, which converts the locality
into a pandemouium. VVhllo Baruum oc
cupies the Madison Square Garden oppo
site, or on the occasion of a big gather

much disturbed, many thirsty souls mis
taking it for a palatial gtn mill aud seeking
entrance to patronize tbe bar. It is now
proposed to give a series of balls or
dances In the private theatre this winter,
which may satisfy for the time the
youuger element; but sooner or later the
club will get back to the avenue, where
eventually all the clubs will be located
excepting the Raquetteand Athletic.

He rushed into print with a declaration
that Messrs. Solomon and Hoyt had writ

turned out to be unequal to “Tito Tin
Soldier.” Theu he will nevertrust bis own
judgment again. Like all tbe rest of them,
he thought Lillian Kustiell’s face ami

I once went to John McCaull to read an
American opera to him. The composer
accompanied me. Mr. MoCaull stood at
the open window in the hotel and carried
on a flirtation with a woman opposite
while I read to him. He treated the whole
thing with a grandiose indifference tbat I

from the Eye.
Many years ago, when Nilsson was un
der the 'management of Htrakosob, the
company were playing in Columbus. As
Nilsson was not in the cast ot) the last
nleht of the engagement, she, accom
panied by Mag Maretzek, Madame, his
wife, and seteral other members of the
opera company, took the early morning
train for Buffalo, their next stop, expect
ing to arrive there that night, A heavy
snow storm set in and the train moved
but slowly, owing to the numerous block
ades. when they were within four miles
of Buffalo a freight train ahead of them
was wrecked, owing to a broken bridge.
This, of oourse, caused a delay of several
hours. The snow was still falling heavi
ly, ii was night, and although they were
within sight of Buffalo It was impossible
for a vehicle of any kind to reach them.
There was not a house of any description
within a half mile ol them, and, having
bad no supper, they were naturally very
hungry. To make matters worse it was
very cold in the car. Mme. Nilsson, as
mav well be supposed, was not in the
best of tempers.
Max Maretzek, after ascertain? the full
particulars of the wreck, and realizing
there was no immediate help lor them, re
solved to make the best of it. He always
carried a little refreshments in the way
ot wine, cheese and bread in his satchel.
In oase he should grow hungry between
meals. He therefore improvised a little
table In the rear of the car, with the as
sistance ot his agent, and placed thereon
a long roll of boloena sausage, a huge
slice Of cheese, a loaf of bread and a large
bottle of wine. He invited the eutire
partv—Mine. Nilsson Included—about
eight in all. to share his repast with him.
They were all, with the exception of the
great singer, only too glad to aocept, and
a lively though hungry party drew around
the board. Mme. Nilsson gave one look
at the cheese and sausage, and with a
disdainful curl of her lip, she murmured,
“disgusting,” and sailed down to her seat
in the other end of the car, where, wrap
ping her furs around her, she made a vain
effort to sleep. The rest of the party cared
little whether she ate or not, and while
resenting her unladylike remark, they
resolved they would “fix her yet.” Kind
hearted Max Maretzek cut a slice of bread
and cheese, and laid them aside, together
with a piece of the despised sausage and
a glass of wine, and alter the rest of the
company had eaten they made prepara
tions for their night’s rest, but not to
sleep. They meant to watch Nilsson.
About an hour after she became extreme
lv fidgety and restless. Frequent ejacu
lations 'of discontent fell from her
lips, and more than once she was heard to
remark to her companion that she was
••Is there no place, no farm house where
I can gel something to eat?” she asked of
“If there was we surely would have
found it long ago. It is an absolute im
possibility for a man to walk even a hun
dred rods in this snow storm, and the
nearest house is nearly a mile away,” he
Presently, unable to bear her punger
any longer, and becoming desperate, sbe
arose, and walking rather sheepishly
down to the rear end of the car, she asked
Max Maretzek if there was anything, a
crust of bread even, left of their truga! re
past. The gratification and satisfaction
of the other artists may well be imagined
when Max placed the sausage, cheese and
wine before the prima donna, and the
alacrity and astonishing rapidity with
which she dispatched every morsel was a
triumph they had not experienced for
some time. The next day when Nilsson
was cosily domiciled in her luxurious
apartments at the Tift House, daintily
picking at a morsel of tender chioken, she
was heard to remark that during her
varied experience as a public singer she
had never eaten a meal that tasted so good
and wholesome as that little midnight
lunch ot cheese and sausage in a lone
some car on a winter’s night.
Poor Bartley CampUell’s Creditors
"Joe" Howard in Boston Globe.
Bartley Campbell, the mad playwright,
is constantly annoyed at Bloomingdaleby
the attorneys of creditors who wish to
serve personal summons in suits brought
against him. For a time this trouble was
overcome by Harry Miner refusing to give
permits to see Mr. Campbell except to his
most intimate friends. Mr. Wilder, an
attorney of No. 140 Nassau street, called
upon Dr. Nichols, the superintendent of
the asylum, for information whether he
could serve papers in a suit for SI,OOO
against Mr. Campbell. The doctor said
that it would notonly be dangerous to the
patient, but cruel. Mr. Wilder, therefore,
refused to in anyway interfere with
Campbell, and it Is probable that anew
leature of the case will be developed.
Campbell has never been legally declared
