This discourse of Dr. I'lilninge Is ti jprojirlntf for nil scusnns, li lit cKpeclul ly In these times of great political agitation. The text i, Daniel l., Hi: "Then the king cnminniidtd, mill they brought Daniel mid east h.iu Into the den of lions." Darius huh Mug of llnli.lon, and the young mini Daniel was so much n favorite with him that he made him jirinie minister, or secretary of state. 3!ut no lniiu could gain such a high position without exciting tlio envy and jealousy of the people. Theie wore demagogues in Ilnbylnn who were so iippierintlw' of their own abilities that they were uilrontcd nt Tthc elevation of this joung in.in. Oltl llnbylou was nfrald of young Uubv ton. Jihc taller the cedar the more apt It 1 to be riven of the lightning. These demagogues asked the king to make a decree that anybody that made a jietltion to anyone except the king during n peilod of 31 days should be put to death. Kill; Darius, not sus pecting nnj foul play, makes that de cree. The demagogues hae necmn llshed all they want, lieeiiuse they jcnim that no one can keep Daniel from sending petition.! bclore Clod for 30 days. So far from being afraid, Rnnlcl goes on with his supplications thiee times n ilti.x and Is found on his house top making prayer lie is caught In the net. lie Is condemned to be de voured by the llous Hough executlon ors of the law sel.. lilm and hasten lilm to the cnictu. I hear the growl of the wild beast" a1 d I see them paw ing the dirt, and .is thev put their mouths to the (fremiti the solid earth quakes with their bellow hips. I see their eyes roll, and I almost hear the fiery eyeballs snap In me darkness. These monster approach Daniel. They have an appetite keen with lum per. With one stroke of their paw or one snatch of thcip teeth they mny leae him dead at the bottom of the cavern. Hut what a strange welcome Daniel receives from these hungry monsters! They fawn around him; they lick his hand; they bury his feet in their long manes. Thnt night lie hns calm sleep with his head pil lowed on the warm necks of the tamed lions. Hut not so well does Darius, the Xing, sleep. He has an attack of ter rific insomnia. He loves Daniel and liates this stratagem by which lie lias lieen condemned. All night long the Icing wnlks the floor. He cannot sleep. At the least sound he stmts, and the flesh creeps with horror. He Is Im patient for the dnwning of the morn ing. At the flrst streak of the day light D.irlus hastens forth to see the fate of Daniel. The henw palace , floors open and clang shut long be fore the people of the elt, waken. Darius gne- to the den of the lions. lie looks in. All is silent. His heart stops. He feels thnt the vciy worst lias happened; but, gathering nil his strength, he shouts Ihioiigh the rifts of the rock: "0 Daniel, is th, fiod whom thou pel vent continually able to deliver thee'.'" Theie comes roll ing up f I om the deep darkness a olee which says: "() king, lhe lorever. My iod has sent Ills angel to shut the lions' mouths that they have not hurt me." Then Daniel is hi ought out from the den. The demagogues are hurled Into it, and no sooner have they Ktruek the bottom of the den thnn rtheir ilesh was rent, an.i their bones cracked, and their biood purfcd through the rifts of lhe rock, and lis the. llonb make the rocks tremble with llicir roar Ihc announce to all ages Hint while (iod will defend his people the n, of the ungodly shall perish. l.earn first from this subject Hint the greatest crime that ,ou commit In the eyes of ninny Is the crime of Miceess. What had Daniel done that lie should be (lung to the lions? lie Jind become pi hue minister. They -could not forgive lilm for that, and liehold In thnt a touch of iinsanctltled liiimau nut ui e as seen In all ages of the world. So long us y tin are plnchid in poverty, so long as ymi are running the gantlet between landlom and tax gatherer, so long as you llnd it hard wnrK to educate your children, there nre people who will say: "Poor innn, I am sorry for him. He ought to suc ceed, poor man." Hut after nwhlle the tide turns In his favor. That was n profitable investment you mnde. You thought jiust at the right time. Port line becomes good hummed mid unlles upon you. Now you nre in some department siiccefsful, and your suc cess chills some one. Those men who used to sympnthle with you stand ulong the sticel, and they scowl nt jou from under the rim of their hats. You have more money or more luflu onee thnn the.v have, and you ought to be scowled at from under the rim of their hats. You catch a vvnid or two ns you pass them by. "Stuck tip," ,nys one. "Clot It dlshonciitly," wiy another "Will burst soon," snys a third Kvery stone In your new house 1b Injd on their hearts. Your horses hoofs went over their nerves, Kvery Item of v Mir success 'ins been to them nn Item of disco in fit lire an 1 despair, Just us mem as In any lespeet you rise nliiive your fellows, If you are more ht nous If von cue more wise, If you ui i' inure Int'iient ml, vim i is n shadow on the piospects of nlhcis The load to honor anil sueiess is within reach of the enemv's pui-. Jealousy says: ".ulu.y down or RJI knock jou down." "I do not like you," says the enow flake to the snow bird. "Why don't you like muV" snid the. snowbhd. "Oh," snld the snow flnke, "you are going up and I um coming down." Young merchants, young lawyers, young dnctois. young imchnnlcs, young artists, young farm ers, nt ecrtuln times theio are those to sympathize with you. but now that you are becoming a master of your pnttliular occupation or profession, how is it nr,w, young lawyers, young doctors, young artist, young fann ers how Is It now? The greatest crime thnt you can commit Is the crime of success. Again, my subject impresses mo with the vnlue of decision of char acter in any department. Dnnlcl knew that if he continued his adher ence to the religion of the Lord he would lie hurled to the lions; hut, having set his compass well, he sailed rigiu on. rnr uie kick oi iiiiii cle ment of deelslen of character so emi nent in Daniel many nun are ruined for this world and ruined for the world to come. A great many at 40 jeais of age are not settled In any respect, because they have not been nble to make up their minds, Per haps thc.V will go West; perhaps they will go enst; perhaps they will not; perhaps they will go north; perhaps they may go south: peihaps they will not; perhaps they may liinke that in vestment in real estate or In rail roads; perhaps they will not. They nre like u steamer that should go out of New York haibor, starting for Olnsgovv, and the next day should change for Havre de (irace, mid the next for ('haileston, and tie next for Hostnii, nnd the nest for Liverpool. These men on the sea of life ever lastingly tacking s'ii" nnd making no headway! Or thev are like n man who starts to I '' a house In the Corinthian sty'.c nnd changes It to Doric mid then ciiipleles it in 'the Ionic, the curse of all styles of nrchl- tcctiue. Yotinit r i i.. start tight and keep on. Have decision of (h'iriieter. Character Is like the goldllnch of Ton ipilu. It Is magnificent while stand ing firm, but loses nil Its beauty In (light. How much decision of char acter In order that thes young men may be Christians! Their old nso-elat'-s make sarcastic (Hugs nt them. They go on excursions, nnd they do not Invite them. They prophesy that he will give out. They wonder If he Is not getting wings. As he passes they grimace and wink nnd chuckle nnd sny : "Theie goes a fa nt." O young man, hnve decision of chnrnc ter! You enn afford In this matter of religion to be laughed nt. What do you care for the scoffs of these men, who nre affronted because you will not go to ruin with them? When the grave cracks open under their feet, nnd glim messengers push them into It, nnd eternity conies down hard upon their spirit, nnd voiiscience stings, and hopeless ruin lifts them up to hurl them down, will they Inugh then? I learn also from my subject thnt men ma' take icllglon Into their world ly business, This is a most nppiopriate thought at this season of the year, when so ninny men nre stm ting nut in new enterprises. Daniel hnd enough work to do to occupy six men. Ml the iillalrs of state weie in bis bunds; ques tions of nuance, questions of wnr, of pence; all international questions were for his settlement or ndjimtinc nt. lie must have had a enrrepoudeuee vast beyond all computation. There wns not a man in all the earth who had more to do thnn Daniel, the seeietnry of state, and yet we find him ihiee times a dny bowing before (iod in prayer. There are men in our day who have not a hiindiedlh part of Daniel's engagements, who say tiny me too busy to be religious. They have mi Idea somehow that tellglou will spoil their win Idly occupation, thnt it will trip the accountant's pen ot dull tho cai'xnsiitut'a saw or confuse the laivyei 's hrlrf or disarrange the ineichant's store shelf. They think religion Is Im pertinent. They would like to have it very well seated beside them In chinch on the Sabbath, to find the place in the psnliubook or to nudge tin ui awake when they get sleepy under the didac tic discourse, or they would like to leave it in the pew on Sabbath evening ns they go out, closing the door, say ing: "(Jowl night, lellgion; I'll be back next Sunday!" Hut to have religion go light along by them nil thioiigh life, to have i elision looking over their shoulder when they are making a bar gain, to have religion take up a bag of dishonest gold and shake It and say: "Wheiedhl you get that'.'" They think that Is an Impertinent lellgion. They would' like to have a religion to help them when they me sick, and when the shadow of death conns over theim they would like to have lellgion as a sort of night key with which to open the door of Heaven, but religion under other circumstances they take to be impertinence. Now, my fi lends, religion never robbed a 1111111 of a dollar. Other things being equal, a mason will build a bet ter wall, a cabinet maker will make a better chair, n plumber will make a better pipe, a lawyer will make a bet ter plea, a meichant will sell n better bill of. goods. 1 say, other things be ing equal. Of course when religion given a man a new heart, It does not propose to give him .1 new head or to Intelloetualle him or to change a man's condition wheu his ordlnnry itate is nn ovei'thiovv of the philoso phical thtor.v that a total vacuum Is impossible, but the more letters you luivi to write, the moie biirdins you have to can-, the more miles j cm luive to travel, the more buedtMis 011 have to lilt, the more eiipaci nients you have to meet, the more iP'-milis vmi have to 'I lc 111 'inoii i 1 1 01 1 nn ty y mi have of 'i 1 1 In 1 1 11 II i 11 luivi a 1 linn ui I .inn,, in tlit lue yiuhuvi ,1 Himi . 1 ' .11 ' 1 11) 1 tin itu s' of ei v.nj; j.a it .1 if you uiily hud one iron in the (Ire. Who so busy ns Christ? And yet who n millionth part ns holy? The busiest men the best men. All theper-c-ons converted in Scripture busy at the time of their being converted. Jlnt thevv attending to his custom house duties; the prodigal son feeding sw hie; Lydla selling purple; Simon Peter hauling In the net from the sen; Saul spurting his horse toward D.imiiscus, going down on his law business: llusy. busy! Daniel with all the uiTnlrs of state weighing down upon his soul, and yet three times a day woishlphig the (iod' of lleiivon. Again I 1cm n from this subject that a man ihny-taku tellglou Into his politics. Daniel had all the all'iiiis of state 011 liunil, yet a servant of (iod. He could not have kept his elevated position unless he had been 11 thor ough politician, nnd yet all the thrusts of olllclals and all the danger of disgrace did not make him yield one lotu of his high toned' icllglous principle, lie stood before that nge, he btmiihs before nil ages, n specimen of ti godly politician. So there hnve been In our clay and In the days of our fnthcrs men as eminent in the service of (iod ns they hnve been em inent in the service of the state. Such was Ilenjamln V. Hutler, attorney general of New York hi the time of your fnthcrs. Such wns John Mc Lean, of the supreme court of t lie United States. Such was (ieorge Hrlggs, of Massachusetts, Such was Theodore I'rclinghuysen, of New Jer sey men faithful to the state, at the same time faithful to (iod. It is ab surd to expect that men who have been Immersed in political wickedness for .'10 or -to years shall come to refor mation, mid our hope is in the young men who me coming up, thnt they lime patriotic principle und Christian principle side by side when they come to the ballot box and cast their (list vote nnd that the.v swear allegiance to the government of Heaven as well ns to the government of the United Stntcs, Wo would hnve Hunker Hill menu less to them than Cavalry, and Lexington menu less than Itelhlehem, but because theie are bad men in omul the ballot box Is no reason why Christian men should retieat ftoiu the menu. The last time you ought to give up your child or forsake your child is when it Is surrounded by a company of Choctaw s, and the last time to surrender the ballot box Is when it Is surrounded by Impurity nnd dishonesty and all sorts of wick edness. Daniel stood on 11 most unpopular platform. He stood firmly, though (he demagogues of the da hissed at him and tried to overthrow him. We must carry our religion into our pol itics. Hut there are a great many men who are in fnvor of taking re ligion into national politics who do not bee the Importance of taking It into city polities, as though a man were intelligent nbout the welfare of his nelghboi hoiid and had1 no concern about his own home. My subject 11K0 Impiesses me vvllh (he fac( thai linns cannot hurt n gooil man. No man ewer got Into worse company thnn Daniel got when he was thrown Into the den. What 11 rare iporel that fair young mnn would have Incn for the liungrv mon sters! If they had plunged nt him he could not hnve climbed Into n niche beyond the reach of their paw or the smileli of tin if tooth. They came, pleased, all 11 round him, ns hunteis' houiiils at the well-known whistle I'oiue bounding to Ills feet. You need not go to Nuinidia to get miinv llous. You all have them nfter you the lion of financial distress, the linn of sick lies, the lion of Mreeutlon. You saw that lion of financial panic put ting his mouth down to the enrth. and he round until all the banks and nil the insurance companies quaked. With his nohti'll he scnUcred tho ahes on (he domestic hearth. You hnve had trial after trial, mlsfoitune nfter mlsfoitune. Hem after lion, and jet they have' never hint you, If you put your (rust In (iod, and they never will hurt you. They did not hurt Daniel, nnd they cannot hint you. The Persians used to think that spring rain falling into seashells would turn into pomls, anil T have to tell you that the tears of sorrow turn Into precious gems when they drop Into Rod's bottle. You need' be nfrald of nothing, putting your (rust In (iod, Hven death, that minister Hon whose den Is the world's sepuleher, nnd who puts his paw down amid thousands of millions of the dead, cannot uffiight you. When In olden times u mnn was to ge( (he honors of knighthood, he was compelled to go fully iirmed the night befoie among the tombs of the dend, carrying n sort of spear, and then when the day broke he would come forth, and, amid the sound of cornet nnd gieat parade, he would get the honors of knighthood. And so It will be with the Chiistlan In the night before Heaven, as, fully armed with spenr nnd helmet of salvation, he will wnll and watch through the darkness until the morning dawns, nnd then he will take the honors of Heaven aivhl the great throng with snovvv robes, streaming over seas of sapphire.
