TALMACE PREACHES OF THE
CHARACTER OF JESUS.
Tbm Subject of the Sermon Being
"Fairest of the iralr," From the Text:
Solomon's Sons. : 16 Conception of
Last Sunday's Sermon at the Tabernacle,
The human race has during' centu
ries been improving. For awhile it
deflected and degenerated, and from
all I can read for ages the whole tend
ency was toward barbarism. But
under the ever widening and deepen
ing influence of Christianity the tend
ency ia no.v in the upward direction.
The physical appearance of the human
race is 75 per cent more, attractive
than in the sixteenth, seventeenth or
eighteenth centuries. From the pic
tures on canvas and the faces and
forms in sculpture of those who were
considered the grand looking men and
the attractive women of 200 years ago,
I conclude the superiority of the men
and women of our time. Such look
ing people of the past centuries as
painting and sculpture have presented
as tine specimens of beauty and dig
nity would be in our time considered
deformity and repulsiveness complete.
The fact that many men and women
in antediluvian times were eight and
ten feet high tended to make the hu
man race obnoxious rather than win
ning. Such portable mountains of
human flesh did not add to the charms
of the world.
But in no climate and in no age did
there ever appear any one who in
physical attractiveness could be com
. pared to him whom my text celebrates,
thousands of years before he put his
infantile foot on the hill back of
Bethlehem. He was, and is, alto
gether lovely. " The physical' appear
ance of Christ is, for the most part, an
artistic guess. Some writers declare
him to have been a brunette or dark
complexioned, and others a blonde or
light complexioned. St. John, . of
Damascus, writing 1,100 years ago, and
so much nearer than ourselves to the
time of Christ, and hence with more
likelihood of accurate tradition, repre
sents him with beard black and curly,
eye-brows joined together, and "yel
low complexion, and long fingers like
his mother." An author writing 1,500
years ago represents Christ as a blonde:
"His hair the color of wine and golden
at the root; straight and without
luster; but from the level of the ears
curling and glossy, and divided down
the center after the fashion of the
Kazarenes. His forehead is even and
smooth, his face without blemish, and
enchanced by a tempered bloom; his
countenance ingenuous and kincL-Xose
and mouth are in no way faulty. His
beard is full, of the same color as his
hair, and forked in form; his eyes blue
and extremely brilliant."
My opinion is it was a Jewish face.
His mother was a Jewess, and there is
no womanhood on earth more beauti
ful than Jewish womanhood. Alas!
that he lived so long before the
Daguerrean and photographic arts
were born, or we might have known
his exact features. I know that sculp
ture and painting were born long be
fore Christ, and they might have trans
ferred from olden times to our times
the forehead, the nostril, the eye, the
lips of our Lord. Phidias the sculptor
put down his chisel of enchantment
500 years before Christ came. Why
did not some one take up that chisel;
and give us the side face or full face of
our Lord? Polygnotus the painter
put down his pencil 00 years before
Christ. Why did not some one take it
up, and give us at least the eye of our
Lord, the eye, that sovereign of" the
face? Dionysius the literary artist
who saw at Heliopolis, Egypt, the
strange darkening of the heavens at
the time of Christ's crucifixion near
Jerusalem, and not knowing what it
was, but describing it as a peculiar
eclipse of the sun, and saying, "Either
the Deity suffers or sympathizes with
some sufferer," that Dionysius might
have put his pen to the work, and
drawn the portrait of our Lord. But
no! the fine arts were busy perpetuat
ing the form and appearance of the
world's favorites only, and not the
form and appearance of the peasan
try, among whom Christ appeared.
It was not until the fifteenth cen
tury, or until more than fourteen hun
dred years after Christ, that talented
painters attempted by pencil to give
us the idea of Christ's face. The pict
ures before that time were so offensive
that the council at Constantinople for
bade their exhibition. But Leonardo
Da Vinci, in the fifteenth century pre
sented Christ's face on two canvases,
yet the one was a repulsive face, and
the other an effeminate face. Raphael's
face of Christ is a weak face. Albert
Durer's face of Christ was a savage
face. Titian's face of Christ is an ex
pressionless face. The mightiest artists,
either with pencil or chisel, have made
signal failure in attempting to give the
forehead, the cheek, the eyes, the
nostril, the month of our blessed Lord.
But about his face 1 can tell you
something positive, and beyond con
troversy. I am sure it was a soulful
face. The face is only thecurtain of tha
souL It was impossible that a disposi
tion like Christ's should not have de
monstrated itself in his physiognomy.
Kindness as an occasional impulse may
give no illumination to the features,
but kindness as the lifelong, dominant
habit will produce attractiveness of
countenance as certainly as the shin
ing of the sun produces flowers. Chil
dren are afraid of a scowling or hard
visaged man. They cry out if he pro
poses to take them. If he try to caress
them, he evokes a slap rather than a
kiss. All mothers know how hard it
is to get their children to go to a man
or woman of forbidding appearance.
But no sooner did Christ appear in the
domestic group than there was
an infantile excitement, and
the youngsters began to struggle
to get out of ' their mother's , arms.
They could not hold the children back.
"Stand back with those children!"
scolded some of the disciples. Per
haps the little ones may have been,
playing in the dirt, and their faces
may not have been clean, or they may
not have been well clad, or the disci
ples may have thought Christ's religion
was a religion chiefly for big folks.
But Christ made the infantile excite
ment still livelier .by his saying that
he liked children better than grown
people, declaring, "Except ye become
as a little child ye can not enter into
the 'kingdom of God." Alas! for those
people who do not like children. They
had better stay out of heaven, for the
place is full of them. That, I think,
is one reason why the vast majority
of the .human race die in infancy.
Christ is so fond of children that he
takes them to himself before the world
has time to despoil and harden them,
and so they are now at the windows
of the palace, and on the doorsteps,
and playing on the green. Sometimes
Matthew, or Mark, or Lnke tells a
story of Christ, and only one tells it,
but Matthew, Mark and Luke all join
in hat picture of Christ girdled by
children, and I know by what occurred
at that time that Christ had a face full
of geniality.1 '
Hot only was Christ altogether love
ly in his countenance, but lovely in his
habits. I know, without being told,
that the Lord who made the rivers,,
and lakes,- and oceans, was cleanly in
his appearance. He disliked the. disease
of leprosy, not only because it was
distressing, but ; because it was" not
clean, and his curative words were, "I
will; be thou clean." He declared him
self in favor of" thorough washing, and
opposed to superficial washing, when
he denounced the hypocrites for mak
ing clean only "the outside of the plat
ter," and he applauds his disciples by
saying, "Now are ye clean," and giving
directions to those who fasted, among
other things he says, "Wash thy face;"
and to a blind man whom he was
doctoring, "Go wash in the pool of
Siloam." And he himself actually
washed the disciples' feet, I suppose
not only to demonstrate his own
humility, but probably their . feet
needed td be washed. The fact is, the
Lord was a great friend of water. I
know that from the fact that most of
the world is water. But when I find
Christ. in such constant commendation
of water, I know he was personally
neat, although he mingled much among
very rough populations, and took such
long journeys on dusty highways. He
wore his hair long, according to the
custom of his land and time, but
neither trouble nor old age-had thinned
or injured his locks, which were never
worn shaggy or unkempt- Yea, all his
habits of personal appearance were
Sobriety was ' also an established
habit of his life. In addition to the
water he drank the juice of the grape.
When at a wedding party this bever
age gave out, he made gallons on gal
lons of grape juice, but it was as un
like what the world makes in our time
as health is different from disease, and
as calm pulses are different from the
paroxysms of delirium tremens. There
was no strychnine in that beverage,
or logwood, or nux vomica. The tip
plers and the sots who now quote the
wine-making in Cana of Galilee as an
excuse for the fiery and damning bev
erages of the nineteenth century for
get that the wine at the New Testa
ment wedding had two characteristics,
the one that the Lord made it, and the
other that it was made out of water.
Buy all you can of that kind and
drink it at least three times a day, and
send a barrel of it around to my cel
lar. You can not make me believe
that the blessed Christ who went up
and down healing the sick, would create
for man that style of drink which is
the cause of disease more than all
other causes combined; or that he who
calmed the maniacs into their right
mind, would create that style of drink
which does more than anything else to
fill insane asylums; or that he who
was so helpful to the poor, would
make a style of drink that crowds the
earth with pauperism; or that he who
came to save the nations from sin,
would create a liquor that is the
source of most of the crime that now
stuffs the penitentiaries. A lovely
sobriety was written all over his face,
from the hair-line of the forehead to
the bottom of the bearded chin.
Domesticity was also his habit.
Though too poor to have a home of his
own, he went out to spend the night at
Bethany, two or three miles walk
from Jerusalem, and over a rough and
hilly road that made it equal to six or
seven .ordinary miles, every morning
and night going to and fro. ' I would
rather walk from here to Central park,
or walk from5 Edinburgh to Arthur's
Seat, or in London clear around Hyde
Park, than to walk that road that
Christ walked twice a day from Jeru
salem to Bethany. , But he liked the
quietude of home life, and he was
lovely in his domesticity. '
How he enjoyed handing over the
resurrected boy to his mother, and the
resurrected girl to her father, and re
constructing homesteads which disease
or death was breaking up. As the song.
"Home, Sweet Home," was written by
a man who at that time had no home,
so I think the homelessness of Christ
added to his appreciation of domes

might recognize him as I intended to kill
"If I had money I would have taken
Polti's bomb to France or Italy
but having none I meant to una
it in the royal exchange,
London. England is the richest country
and at the exchange there would La

have thrown my bomb and escaped if I
could. If 1 failed others would have
taken my place."

newsboys will be allowed on any of the
cars of the principal streetcar lines in
New York. Two things led to this radi
