STATE JOURNAL. MONDAY EVENING, MAY 14. 1894. TALM AGE'S SERMOX. Th.e One Preacbed Just Before the Fire " 03 THE REAL CHRISTIAN CHURCH. Mtehol ThOH Art JPalr My Lot,' Title filial tiubjeet. the Beooklth, N. May 13, 1894. The tabernacle was crowded to the doors to-day when Rev. Dr. Talmage took for the subject of his forenoon sermon a passage of scripture which has been made the subject of much discussion and various interpretation by modern theologians. His theme was, "A Cheerful Church," and the text was selected from Solomon's song" 4:1: "Behold Thou Art Fair, My Love." "Higher criticism" says that this book of Solomon's Song is a love scene, - a forlorn maiden sighing for lier beau. If so, it is an unclean and debauched utterance inserted in the pure word of God and is not fit for common read ing. My opinion is that it is an inspired ode setting forth the feeling of Christ toward the church and of the church toward Christ Christ is the bridegToom, and the church is the bride. The same words we can utter to-day truthfully whether in regard to the church of God in general or this church in particular: "Behold, thou art fair, my love." The past week has been one of prolonged congratulation for 'that we have for twenty-five years been permitted to associate with each other in the relation of pastor and people. When I came to Brooklyn I found a small band of Christian disciples who from Various causes had become less and less, until they stood upon the very verge of extinction as a church; and the question was being agitated from time to time whether it would be pos sible to maintain a church life longer. Indeed, had not those men and women been consecrated and earnest, they would have surrendered to the adverse circumstances. They mar shalled a congregational meeting, and, gathering up all the forces possi ble, they , cast nineteen votes for a pastor, all of which I am happy to have received. It was not through any spirit of per sonal courage or reckless adventure that led me, from one of the warmest and most congenial pastorates in Phil adelphia that a man ever enjoyed, to this then most uninviting field; but it was the feeling that God had called me to the work and I was sure he would see me through. 1 have thought that it might be profitable to us to state briefly what kind of a church we have been trying to establish. In the first place. I remark that we have been trying to build here a Christian church distinctively such; in other words, a church where we should preach the Lord Jesus Christ and him crucified. Mv theoloctsr Ls all gone into five letters Jesus. Je " sus. the pardon of all offenses. Jesus, the foundation for all structures. Je sus, the balm for all wounds. Jesus, the eye-salve for all blindness. Jesus, the guide through all perplexities. Jesus, the "hope for all discourage ments. Jesus, the reform for all wrongs. I have faith to believe that there is more power in one drop of the blood of Jesus Christ to cure the woe of the world than in an ocean full of J -iman quackery. Jesus is the grandest note in any min strelsy. He is the brightest gem in any crown. Height overstepping all height. The center of every circum ference. The circumference to every center. The pacifier of all turbu lence. The umpire of all disputes. Jesus! Jesus! At his table all nations are to sit. Around his throne all worlds are to revolve. He is to be the irradiation of the universe. Jesus! Jesus! It is that truth that we have tried to preach in this tabernacle. Do you ask more minutely what we believe? I can tell you. We have no dry, withered, juiceless theology. We believe in God, the Father Almighty, maker of hetven and earth, the de liverer of the distressed, the home for the homeless, the friend for the friend less. We believe in Jesus Christ, able to save to the uttermost, pardoning the guilty, imputing his righteousness to the believer. We believe in the Holy Ghost, the comforter, the Sancti fier, cheering up the heart in life's ills, and kindling bright lights in every dark landing place. We be lieve that the whole race is so sunken in sin that nothing but the omnipotent arm of God can ever lift it out. We believe in grace free grace, sovereign grace, triumphant grace, eternal grace. We believe in a Bible authentic in its statements,immaculate in its teachings, glorious in its promises. We believe in heaven, the abode of the righteous; and in hell, the -residence of those who are soul -suicides of their own free choice refusing the divine mercy. We believe in the salvation of all men who accept Christ by faith, be they sprinkled or immersed, worship they in cathedral or in log cabin, believe they in Presbyterianism or Episco pacy, dwell they under Italian skies or in Siberian snow -storms, be they Ethiopian or American. All one in Christ One Lord, one faith, one baptism, on the way to one heaven. We built this tabernacle for the purpose of setting forth these great theories of the Gospel of the Son of God. Would that we had been more faithful in the pulpit! Would that we had been more faithful in the pew! I remark, further, that we have tried here to build a church distinctively unconventional. Instead of asking, as some people are disposed to do, how other people do it, we have asked ethe question how people do not do it Imperious custom has de cided that churches shall be angular cheerless, gloomy, unsympathetic; for getting that what men call a pious gloom is Impious, and that that church has the best architecture where the people are the most comfortable, and that that is the most efficient Christian service : where the people are made most sick of sin and most anxious after Christ and heaven; And so. we called the architects together for our first churcli building, and said, "Give us an amphitheatre" that is, a large family circle, gathered aroimd a fireplace. For many years we had felt that an amphitheatre was the only proper shape for an audience room. The prominent architects of the country said, "It can not be done. You need a churchly building." And so we had plan after plan of churchly buildings , presented; but in due time God sent a man who grasped our" idea and executed it So far from being a failure, it satisfied our want, and all our three chnirches were built on the amphitheatrical plan, and scores of churches all over the country have adopted the same plan. And, my brethren and sisters, we fail in our work just in proportion as we try to be like other churches. We believe that God ' intended every church, like every man, to be individ ual, gathering up all its peculiarities and idiosyncracies, and hurling them all toward some good and grand ob ject In other words, no two churches ought ever to be just alike. Here is a church, for instance, whose object it! is to prepare . philosophers and artists and critics for heaven. God speed them in the difficult work! Here is a church, on the other hand, that proposes to bring only the poor into the -kingdom of Jesus Christ, looking not after the rich. God speed such a church in its undertaking! But there is a larger idea that a church "may take bring ing in the rich and the poor, the wise and the ignorant, the high and the low; so that kneeling beside each other shall be the man faring sumptu ously every day, and the man who could not get his breakfast God speech such a church! Oh! my friends, we need to break away from slavery to ecclesiastical custom. We dare not sing if anybody hears ua We dare not preach unless we have rounded off our sentences to suit the criticism of the world. We dare not dress for church until we have examined the fashion plates, and would rather stay at home than appear with a coat or a hat not sanctioned by custom. When will the day of deliverance come to the church, of God, when, instead of a dead religion, laid out in a cata falque of insincerity, we shall have a living, bounding, sympathetic, glow ing Christianity? . I remark, further, that we have tried here to build and to conduct a cheerful churcli. While, as you know, we have not held back the terrors of the law, and the sterner doc trines of the gospel, we have tried in this house to present to ' this people the idea that the gladdest, brightest, happiest thing in all the universe is thf Christian . rluTinn Th'w ic much trouble in the world; business men have so many anxieties; toiling men have so many fatigues; or phans have to many desolations for God's sake, if there be any bright place on earth, show it to them. Let the Church of Jesus Christ be the most cheerful spot on earth. Let me say that I do not want any body to come whining around me ab'out the Christian religion. I have no faith in a religion made up of equal parts of wormwood', vinegar, and red pepper. If the religion that is pre sented to us be a depression, we will get along better without it If it be a joy, let it shine out from your face, and from your conversation. If a man comes to my house to talk of religion with lugubrious counte nance, and manner full of sniffle and dolorousness, I feel like saying to my wife, "You had better lock up the sil ver before he steals something." I have found it an invariable rule that men who profess faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, priding themselves at the same time on their sanctimon iousness, always turn out badly. I never knew an exception. While those who are the most con sistent, the most useful, and the most consecrated, have perfume in their conversation, and heaven in their face. The happiest Christians that I have ever known have been persons from 60 to 80 years of age. By that time people get over the shams and pre tenses of society, and have no longer any patience with anything like im posture in religion. G Christian! how dare you be gloomy? Is not God your Father? Is not Jesus Christ your Sair? Has not your path all through 1 e been strewn with mercies? Are you insensible to the fact that there are glories awaiting you in the better land? doxologies of celestial worship, eternal chorals, tearless eyes, songs that resound under arches of strength, and hosannas that clap their hands at the foot of the throne? Is it nothing to you that all the hills of heaven are radiant with the faces of those who have gone up from you, and who are waiting foryour coming, ready to keep you eternal holiday? Is there nothing in songs that never cease, in hearts that never ache, in splendors that never die, to make you glad? Then take no more mercy at the band of thy God! Give back the marriage ring of love that Jesus put on your finger in the day of your espousal! Plant no more of the flowers of heaven where there ought to be nothing but nettles and nightshade! We try to make this church a cheer ful church. A man on Saturdav after noon stands in his store and says, "How shall I meet these obliga tions? How can I endure this new disaster that is coming upon me?" He goes home. Sabbath morning finds him - in the house of God. Through the song, through the ser mon, through, the prayer, the Lord Jesus Christ says to that tn. "O man! I have watched thee; I have seen all thy struggles. It is enough;" I will see ihee through; I will stand between thee and thy creditors. ' I will make up in heavenly treasures what you have lost in earthly treasures. Courage! man! couragel Angels of God, I command you to clear the track for that man; put your wings over his head; with your golden scepters strike for his defense; throw around him all the defenses of eter nity!" What is the consequence? That business man is strengthened. He goes to the store next day feeling that God is with him and ready to deliver. That same Sunday there is a poor old woman in the church hearing the GospeL' Oh! how shrunken she k! She wears the same dress she wore twenty years ago. How faded it is, and how out of date! She sits and listens as well as she can. Her eyes are so dim she can not see half-way across the church. Her ear is- so im perfect that she can only catch noc casionally a note of the psalm or a word of the preacher. Some one sit ting next to her gives her a book and finds the place for her. She says, "Thank you, miss, thank you!" She holds the book close up to her eyes, and with a voice all full of tremors, sings: Jeans, lover of my soul, Let me to thy bosom fly, While the billows near me roll, "While the tempest still is high; Hide me, O, my Savior hide, Till the storm of life is past Safe into the haven guide Oh ! receive my soul at last. And Jesus says to her, "Mother, are you weary?" And she says "Yes, Jesus, I am very tired." Jesus says, "Mother, are you poor?" And she says "Yes, I am very poor. I can not sew any more; I can not knit any more. I am very poor." Jesus says to her, "Mother, would you like to rest?" She says, "Yes, Lord, that is what I want rest." "Courage, mother," says Jesus, "I will see thee through." She goes home. The next morning, in the tene ment house, some one dwelling on another floor comes to her room and knocks. No answer. The door is opened. STie is dead! The night be fore, the chariots of God halted at hat pillow of straw, and Jesus kept his promise. He said that he - would give her rest, and he has given her rest Glory be to God for the height, the depth, the length, and the breadth of such Christian comfort! Oh! that we might have such joy as that which inspired the men at the battle of Leuthen. They were singing a Christian song as they went into battle. A general said to the king, "Shall I stop those people singing?" "No." said the king; "men that can sing - like that can fight" I would that we had a singing church, a joyful church, a jubilant churcli, a comforting church; for then we would have a triumphant church. I remark, further, that we have here tried to build a church abreast of the times. It is all folly for us to try to do things the way they did fifty or a hundred years ago. We might as crooked stick, or go into battle with Saul's armor, or prefer a canal boat to an express train, as to be clinging to old things. What we most need now is a wide-awake church. People who are out in the world all the week, jostling against this lightning-footed century, come into the church on the Sabbath, and go right to sleep unless they have a spirited service. Men engaged in lit erary callings all the week, reading pungent, sharp writings, can not be expected to come and hear our ecclesiastical humdrum. If a man stays at home on Sundays and reads the newspapers, it is because thje newspapers are more interesting. We need, my brethren, to rouse up and stop hunting with blank cart ridges. The Church of God ought to be the leader, the interpreter, the in spirer of the age. It is all folly for us to be discussing old issues ar raigning Nero, hanging Absalom, striking the Philistines with Sham gar's ox-goad when all around about us are iniquities to be slain. Did I say that the church ought to be abreast of the times? I take that back. The Church of God ought to be ahead of the times as far in ad vance as the Cross of Christ is ahead of all human invention. Paul was a thousand years ahead of the day in which he lived. The swift-footed years that have passed since Luther died have not yet come up to Luther's grave. Give iniquity four . thousand years the start, and the feet of Chris tianity are so nimble that if you will but give it full swing, it will catch up and pass it in two bounds. The Church of God ought to be ahead of the times. Then She Was Not So Charmed. "I'm so glad I'm going to be your wife, Mr. Jones I mean Charley," said "the only woman he ever loved," after he had asked and been accepted. "Most of your peoole live in Cleveland, you know, and I have never met them. But I have met your sister who lives in Toledo several times, and like her very much." "Why, vl have no sister in Toledo oi anywhere else," he said, wonderinR what it meant "Is that so?" I don't understand ii at alL That charming young widow, Mrs. Van Smart, said she was youi sister, and you had another one acrosr the river." "Oh, she was just joking you, my darling," he replied while a confused flush crept over bis face. Since then she has found that the "charming widow" was a sister by re jection,and she is not so charmed witr her. Toledo Blade. A Utilitarian. Daughter (pleadingly) I am sure you will like George.

Th.e TB-lxd Time is th.e Charm For Ringlings. A BRILLIANT SHOW ON THE STREETS. How th If Ijr Cirena ia Ron A Splen did Performance Before a Larse Aifdienee. This being circu3 day, the poetry edi tor of the State Journal had some thought on circuses in general and the old fashioned circus in particular, which he conveys to the State Journal's readers in the following: How dear to my heart is the old fashioned circus The first simple circus that had but one ring, "Where I sat on a board with feet dangling down ward And absorbed without worry the very last thing. The man put his head In the mouth of the lion. The oid spotted mare cantered in at the door. The band always broke down but I liked it hugely The old oue-ring circus that no w is no more. Ah, thousands still live who regret its depart ture. As I do when watching the new fangled sort. With three rings, that may beat it somewhat for splendor, -But never pin beat it for genuine sport There we sat open-mouthed and took in each feature Distinctly- and clearly, with nothing to confuse As nowadays, while trying to watch the whole business, "We let down on the new one our stock of abuse. . How vexed we feel nowadays and how disap pointed, "When thinking of acts in the ring that we lost While watching the poor little acts in the other. That never seem worth more than half what they cost. And now as wo sit on the soft cushioned benches. Which compared to the old ones are not quite so rough, We still sigh for the one-ringed, old fashioned circus. The circus where one pair of eyes was enough. The old fashioned boss who refused us admit tance When as boys we had worked l.lf the day on the tent And made us content ourselves with a decoction; The like of which Hades would never have sent. The kind-hearted ent hand who, seeing our trouble. Let us crawl 'neath the canvas at our sweet will; The vender with tin cup glued half full of pea nuts; And the old-fashioned concert, ah, it's with us still. It takes an army of small boys in ad dition to about 300 men to get ready for a single performance the tents and other properties of a circus the size of Ring ling Brothers'. Five of the seven Ringling brothers are in town today with their show, and an immense show it is. They came to lopeka Sunday morning over the Union Pacific from Leavenworth and pitched their tents on the state fair grounds. The army of small boys were on hand to as sist in this event of never-ceasing inter est They never fail to have an excuse for hanging around when the circus men and the police try in vain to drive them away. Those boy3 who were on the ground early this morning don't go to school until afternoon; and those who are there this afternoon went to school in the morning; and those who stayed all day didn't go to school at all, because they are just "getting over the measles," or because they expect their "little sis ters have the mumps," or because "their mothers need them to stay at home and do errands." The space the boys don't occupy is filled up with unemployed men. The workmen move about aa if unconscious of the spectators. J. II. Suellen is the chief canvas man of the circus and so skilled is he in his particular work that when he arrives on the ground he can tell at a glance just how to dispose of them. The big tent is 395 by 195 feet .and the annex tent is 310 by 100. Besides these there are other smaller tents too numerous to mention. He carries all the necessary figures and dimensions in his head and with the aid of a tape-line fixes the posi tions of the pins, ropes and poles with different colored pins. The ground seems a confused mass of poles and stakes, but Snellen hurries about giving orders that nobody but the men can un derstand, bringing order out of chaos. The tent ia finally brought out of the canvas wagon and spread over the ground. At a signal the men raise the edge of the tent, bringing these little poles to a perpendicular. The tent now looks like an enormous flattened white hat with the rim turned up. In a little further the men dive, and soon they begin to push the quarter poles to an. upright position. The men at the main poles pull up, and slowly the tent begins to assume shape. Teams of horses are soon brought into requisition, and they pull the bases of the quarter poles to their place. The guy ropes, which reach from the edge of the tent to the stakes, tighten and soon the big tent is taut and firm. The ropes that held the poles firm while the tent was being pulled up are slackened and the canvas sways as it feels the flexibility in the ropes. Then the "side walls" are put on and the seats that are as hard as a rail road track, are brought put and placed in position. There .are 250 laborers and 102 per formers with the circus. Fifteen of the latter are women. There are also 300 horses and twenty-one cages in the men agerie. The menagerie forms one of the most interesting features of the circus. The Ringlings have several features that other circuses do not have. Besides the elephants and camels and other wild beast from the "jingles of Africa," as one of the hands said, there ia the only giraffe on exhibition in America. It is a female giraffe, with beautiful hair-colored spots on its sides and a neck as long as a clothesline. Its four feet aa so close together that that they have to spread out like the polea of a tent to enable the animal to keep her balance. Then there is a hippopotamus with a mouth as big aa a bass-drum. Two baby lions are an other interesting feature, 'lhey are only three weeks old and as tame as kit tens, but the mother roara and snarls every time she thinks the spectatora are saying anything uncomplimentary about them. One of the moat interesting figures to be found about the dressing room was Hjalmar Lnndin, a young Swede who says he is as strong as Sandow. He cer tainly looks it, and the muscles in his arms and back are as strong and hard as iron. He lifts a horse and man with ease, and a 200-pound dumb-bell which the reporter could hardly lift, was lifted by Lundin with only his little finger and iIXIIlSIIII!IIII!...!i:aUX!HSIaII!lIIUII!lfII!IIIISIMIIIlIEIIIItIIIIIIIUXIIlIIi:iiniIl .:nr SPRING AND SUMMER FOOTWEAR Two floors packed with Medium and Fine Shoes and Slippers. liI!lin!EIE!l!!III!!Iini!IH!IHI!lii:i!i!!llili!!li!I!!!!l!!!!Ili!ll!!HI!li!i!iS!Ili!IIE!!!ir "HE THAT WORKS EASILY, WORKS SUCCESSFULLY." CLEAN HOUSE WITH held over hia head. He has been unable to perform for several days because he sprained a muscle in his back, but he says he is all right now and proposes to perform today. There are many other good performers of many nationalties. and in all they form an army of 102 people. One good feature of the circus and one that deserves cordial commendation is its freedom from that disreputable class known among themselves as '"grafters," or confidence men. This class run shell games, pick pockets and resort to similar methods for deriving revenue. They work either on wages or on a percentage of profits. It is stated not only by the Ringlings but by all the men about the place, that there isn't a single "grafter" with the show. "Where coaldI find one of the Ring ling brothers?"'asked a reporter of one of the circus men. "Dunno," replied the man who was taking a rest, on a bale of hay. "It's harder to find any of 'em than aa if there was only one. The only way I know is to do something wrong and they'll all be around you, all live of 'em. They'll just jump right up out of the ground. This is the strictest show I ever was with," he continued, after borrowing a plug of tobacco and returning about 33 per cent of it. "You can't do-nothing out of the way. They don't allow no grafting, and you will get fired if you look cross-eyed at a girl." Mr. Alf. T. Ringling, the third of the brothers in point of age, was finally located. He wa3 in the ticket wagon and didn't know the reporter wascround. "Sav, Billy," he said, "give me some 'dough.' I want to go up town and pay a few bills." This remark was addressed to a young man who was counting out a bushel of coin. "How much do you want?" "Oh, I don't know. I guess eight hun dred dollars will be enough." He was given the money in bills and gold, which he deposited in a satchel. He gladly showed the reporter over the whole cir cus from one end to the other. He is popular with all the men and knowa many of them by name. The grub-tent was one of the most interesting places on the ground. Here six cooks were hard at work getting up a good dinner for the 500 men who are connected with the circus. And those who think for a minute that they don't have good things to eat are mistaken. For instance the bill of fare this noon was: Veal cutlets breaded, with tomato sauce, beef steak, custard pies (115 of them), coffee, be sides bread and butter. This was the noon meal, the lightest the men eat. The 5 o'clock dinner ia the big meal. There are seven of the Ringling brothers connected with the show, but Henry and Gus, the youngest, two are not members of the firm. The other brothers are aa follows, arranged ac cording to age: Al., Otto, Alf. T., Charles and John. NORTH TOPEKA. Items or Intoroak from the North Side of .
