great abundance; neither was there

gave King Solomon."
What Is that building out yonder
glittering In the sun? Have you not
heard? It is the house of the forest
of Lebanon. King Solomon has just
token to It his bride, the princess of
Egypt. You see the pillars of the
portico and .-. great tower, adorned
with 1,000 shields of gold hung on
the outside of the tower 500 of the
ohlelds of gold manufactured at Sol
omon's order, d00 were captured by
Dnvld. his father, in buttle. See liow
they blaze in the noonday sunl
Soiomon goes up the Ivory stairs
f his throne between 12 lions In
tatuary and sits down on the back
of the golden bull, the hend of the
huge beast turned toward the people.
The family and the attendants of the
Icing are so many that the caterers of
the palace haTe to provide every day
100 sheep and 13 oxen,, besides the
birds and the venison, ' I hear the
stamping and pawing of 4,000 fine
horses In the royal "stables. There
were important officials who had
charge of the work of -gathering the
straw and the barley for these
horses. King Solomon was an early
riser, tradition says, and used to take
a ride out at daybreak, nnd when, in
his white npparel, behind the swiftest
horses of nil the reolm'nnd 'followed
by mounted archers In purple.'ns the
cavalcade dashed through the streets
of Jerusalem, I suppose It was Miine
tliing worth getting up nt live o'clock
in the morning to look at.
Solomon was not like some of the
kings of the present dny crowned
imbecility. All the tplcndnrs of his
palace nnd retinue were eclipsed by
his Intellectual power. Why, he
seemed to know everything. He was
the first great naturalist the wofld
ever saw. Peacocks from India strut
ted the basaltic walk, and apes chat
tered In the trees, and deer stalked
the parks, and there were aquariums
with foreign fish nnd n lories with
foreign birds, and tradition says
these birds were so well tamed that
Solomon might wnlk elenr across the
city under the shadow of their wings
ns they hovered nnd flitted about him.
More than this. He had a. great rep
utation for the eonundruins nnd rid
dles t lint he made and guessed. He
nnd King Hiram, his neighbor, used
to sit by the hour nnd nsk riddles,
each one paying In money If he could
not answer or guess the riddle. The
Soloironlc navy visited nil the world,
and the sailors, of course, talked
about the wealth of their King and
about the riddles nnd cnl.giiint that
he made and solved, and the news
spread until (Jreen Hulki's, away off
unit h, heard of It and sent inesHen
geiri with n few riddles that she
would like to huc oolnnmn solve nnd
n few iU7les that she would like to
Iiave him find nut. She sent, among
other t liinp s. to King Solomon a dia
mond with n hole so small that a
needle could not penetrate It, asking
him to thread that diamond, nnd Sol
omon took a worm and put It nt the
pening In the diamond,' 'and the
worm crawled through,'- leaving the
thread in the diamond. The queen
ulso sent n goblet to Solomon, asking
him to fill it with water that did not
pour from the sky and that did not
rush out from the earth,, and imme
diately Solomon put n slave on the
back of n swift horse and galloped
him around and around the' park un
til the horse was nigh exhausted,
nnd from the perspiration ' of the
horse the goblet was filled. She also
sent to King Solomon 500 boyi In
girls' dress nnd -500 girls In boys'
dress, wondering If he would be acute
enough to find out the deception. Im
mediately Solomon, when he saw
them vvnsh their faces, knew from
the way they applied the water that
it was all a cheat.
Queen llalkis was so pleased with
the ncuteness of Solomon that she
said: "I'll just go and se him for
myself." Yonder It comes the envul
cade horses and dromedaries, chari
ots and charioteers, jingling harness
and clattering hoofs , and blaing
shields nnd flying ensigns nnd clap
ping cymbals. The place Is saturated
with the perfume. She brings cin
namon and saffron and calamus nnd
frankincense and nil manner, of sweet
Kjilces. As the retinue sweeps through
the gate the armed guard Inhales the
aroma. "Haiti" cry the charioteers
us the wheels grind the' 'gravel In
front of the pillared portico of the
king. Queen Hnlkls alights In an at
mosphere bewitched with perfume.
As thejlromednries nrc driven up to
the. king's storehouses, .and the bun
dles of camphor are unloaded, and
the sackH of cinnamon' lind the boxes
of spices nre opeped, the purveyors
of tho pnlnce discover what my text
announces: "Of spices, great abun
dance; neither was there any such
spice as tho queen of Shebu gnvo to
Well, my friendB, you know thnt
nil theologiuns agree in making Sol
omon u typo of Christ and in making
tho queen of Shcba a type of every
truth seeker, and I will. take the re
sponsibility of saying' that all the
spikenard and cassia and frnnkln--tense
which tho queen of Sheba
brought to King Solomon are might
ily suggestive of the sweet spices of
our holy religion. Christianity is not
n collection of sharp technicalities
and angular facts and chronological
tables and dry statistics. Our reli
gion is compared to frankincense nnd
to cnssln, but never to nightshade.
It Is n bundle of myrrh. It Is a dash
of holy light. It is a sparkle of cool
fountains. It Is nn opening of opal
ine gntes. It Is a collection of spices.
Would God that wo wero ns wlso in
taking spices to our DMnc King ns
Queen llalkis was wlso in taking the
spices to the earthly Solomon.
The fact Is that the duties and
enres of this life, coming to us from
time to time, nre stupid often nnd
Inane and Intolerable. Here are men
who have been battering, climbing,
pounding, hammering, for 20 years,
40 years, fiO years. One great, long
drudgery has their life been, their
faces anxious, their leenngs dc
numbed, their days monotonous.
What is necessnry to brighten up
that man's life nnd to sweeten that
acid disposition und to put sparkle
into the man's spirits The spicery
of our holy religion. Why, If between
the losses of life there dnshed tho
gleam of nn eternal gain, if between
the betrayals of life there came the
rleam of the undying friendship of
Christ, if In dull times In business we
found ministering spirits flying to
nnd fro in our office nnd store and
shop, everyday life instead of being
a stupid monotone would be a glor
ious inspiration, pendulumlng be
tween calm satisfaction and high rap
ture. How any woman keeps house with
out the religion of Christ to help her
is a mystery to me. To have to spend
the irrenter part of one's life, as many
women do, In planning for the meals
and stitching garments that will soon
be rent again nnd deploringbrenkages
and supervising tardy subordinates
and driving off dust that soon again
will settle and doing the snme thing
dny In nnd day 'out and year in and
year out until the hair silvers and the
back stoops nnd the spectacles crawl
to the eyes and the grave breaks open
under the thin sole of the shoe oh.
It is a long monotony! But when
Christ conies to the drnwlng-room nnd
conies to the kitchen and comes to the
nursery and comes to the dwelling,
then how cheery become nil womanly
duticsl She Is never alone now.
Martha gets through fretting and
joins Mary nt the feet of Jesus. All
day long Deborah Is hnppy because she
can help I.apidoth, Hannah because
she can make a coat for young hnm
uel, Miriam because she can watch
her Infant brother, linehel because
she enn help her fnther water the
stock, the widow of Snrepta because
the cruse of oil is being replenished.
0 woman, having In your pantry n
nest of boxes containing all kinds of
condiments, why have you not tried
In your heart and life the spicery of
our holy religion? "Martha, Martha,
thou art careful and troubled about
many things, but one thing Is needful,
and Mary hath chosen thnt good part
which shall not be taken away from
1 must confess that a great deal of
the religion of this dny is utterly In
sipid. There is nothing piquant or
elevating about It. Men and women
go around humming psnlius In a minor
key nnd cultivating meluneholj, and
their worship has in it more sighs
than raptures. We do not doubt their
pletj. Oh, no! Hut they are sitting
ut a feast where the cook hns for
gotten to season the food. Hv er thing
is flat In their experience nnd in their
coiivprvntion. I'maiieipated from slu
nnd (tenth nnd hell nnd on their wn.v
to u iiingnltlcent Henveti, they net ns
though the.v were trudging on toward
an everlasting Botany liny, itellgion
does not seem to agree with them. It
seems to catch in the windpipe and
become a tight strangulation Instead
of an exhilaration. All the lnlldel
books flint have been written, from
Voltaire down to 'Herbert Spencer,
have not done so much damage to our
Christianity as lugubrious Christians.
Who vvnnts n religion woven out of
the shadows of the night? Why go
growling on your way to celestial en
thronement? Come out of thnt cave
und sit down in the warm light of the
Sun of Righteousness. Away with
voiir odes to melancholy nnd Hervey's
"Meditations Among the Tombs."
Then let our songs abound
And ivory tear ho dry;
We're marching through Emmanuel's
To fulrer worlds on high.
I have to say also that we need to
put more spice and enllveiiment in our
religious teaching, whether It be In
the prajer-meetlng or In the Sunday
school or In the church. We ministers
need more fresh nlr and sunshine in
our lungs und our heart and our head.
Do j on wonder that the world Is so
far from being converted when you
find so little vivacity In the pulpit and
In the pew? We wunt, like the Lord,
to plant in uur sermons nnd exhorta
tions more lilies of the Held, We wunt
fewer rhetorical elaborations and
fewer susquipedallan words, and when
we talk ubout shadows we do not wunt
to suj udumbrution, und when we
meun queerness we do not want to
talk ubout Idiosyncrasies, or if a stitch'
iu the buck we do not wunt to tulk
about lumbugo; but, in the plain ver
uaculur of the great masses, preach
that Gospel which proposes to muke
all men happy, honest, victorious und
free. In other words, we want more
cinnamon and less gristle. Let this
be so In nil the different departments
of work to which the Lord calls us.
Let us be plain. Let us be earnest.
Let us be common-senslcal. When we
alk to the people in a vernacular they
cun understand, they will be very glad
to come and, receive the truth we pre
sent. Would to God thut Queen Balkls
would drive her splce-laden drome
daries Into all our sermons and prayer
More than that, we want more life
and spice In our Christian work. The
poor do not want so much to be
groaned over as sung to. With the
bread nnd medicines and garments
you give them let there be an no
coinpnnlincnt of smiles nnd brisk en
couragement. Do not stand and' talk
to them about the wretchedness of
their abode, and the hunger of their
looks, and the hardness of thefr lot.
Ah, they know It better than you cu
tell them. Show them the bright side
of the thing, If there be any bright
side. Tell them good times will come.
Tell them that for the children of
God there is Immortnl rescue. Wake
them up out of their stolidity by nn
inspiring laugh, and while you send
in help, like the queen of Shebu, also
send in the spices.
We need more splec and enllvenment
In our church music. Churches sit
discussing whether they shall have
choirs or precentors or organs or bass
viols or cornets. 1 say take thnt which
will brlntr out the most Inspiring mu
sic. If we had half as much zeal and
spirit in our churches as we have In
the songs of our Sunday schools, It
would not be long before the whole
earth would quake with the coming
God. Why, nine-tenths of the people
in church do not sing, or they sing so
feebly that the people at their elbows
do not know they are singing. People
mouth and mumble the praises of
God, but there is not more than one
out of a hundred who makes a joyful
noise unto the Bock of Our Salvation.
Sometimes, when the congregation
forgets Itself and Is all absorbed in
the goodness of God or the glories of
Heaven, I get nn intimation of whnt
church music will be a hundred years
from now, when the coming genera
tion shall wake up to Its duty.
Now, I wnnt to impress you with
the fact that religion is sweetness
nnd perfume and spikenard and saf
fron and (innnmon and cnssla and
fraukiticcnso and nil sweet spices to
gether. "Oh," you say, "I have not
looked nt it ns such. I thought it
was a nuisance. It had for me n re
pulsion. I held my breath as though
it were a malodor. I have been np
pallcd at Its advance. I have .said
if I have any religion nt all I want
to have just as little of it as possi
ble to get through with." Oh, what
n mistake you make, my brother!
The religion of Christ is a present
nnd cverinstlng redoleseenee. It coun
teracts till trouble. Just put it on the
stand beside the pillow of sickness.
It catches In the curtains and per
fumes the stifling air. It sweetens
the cup of bitter medicine and throws
n glow on the gloom of the turned
lattice. It Is a balm for the nching
side nnd a soft bandage for the tem
ple stung with pain. It lifted Samuel
Buthcrford Into n revelry of spiritual
delight while he was in physical ag
onies. It helped Ulehnrd Baxter un
til, in the midst of Mich n complica
tion of disenses ns perhnps no other
mnn ever suffered, lie wrote "Ihe
Saint's r.verlasting Best," nnd It
poured light upon John Bunynn's
dungeon the light of the shining
gate of the shining city.
Have you reud of the Taj Mahal. In
India, In some respects the most ma
jestic building on earth? Twenty
thousand men were 20 years in build
ing it. It cost about $10,000,000. Tho
walls nre of marble Inlaid with car
lielian from Bagdad and turquoise

the shining of the enchanted cnstlo
of burnished silver. The walls are
245 feet high, and from the top of
these springs n dome 30 more feet
high, that dome containing the moBt
wonderful echo the world hns ever
known, so that ever and anon trav
elers stnndlng below with flutes nnd
drums and harps are testing thnt
echo, and the sounds from below
strike up, nnd then come down, ns It
were, the voices of angels nil around
about the building. There Is around
it a garden of tnmarind and bnnynn
nnd palm and nil the floral glories of
the ransacked earth. But thut Is only
n tomb of a dead empress, nnd It Iv
tame compared with the grandeurs
which God has bullded for your living
nnd immortal spirit.
Oh, home of the blessed! Founda

And around about that mansion Is a

TAMING A LION.
A Tmmlc Thnt Call (or Sumethlag
.More Than Courase The Trainer
te a Chair, lint Not to Sit On.
'ihe wild-beast tamer as generally
plolured is a mysterious person who
stulks about sternly in high boots
and possesses a remarkable power of
the eye thut makes lion and Ugors
quail at his look and shrink away.
Re rules by fear, and the crack of
his whip is supposed to bring mem
ories of torturing points and red-hot
irons, says Cleveland MolUtt, in St.
Such is the story-book lion-tamer,
and I may as well say at once that
outside of story-books he has small
exlUence. There Is scarcely an truth
in this theory of hate for hate and
conquest by fear, it is no more fear
thnt makes a lion walk ou a ball than
it is fear that makes a horc pull a
wagon. It Is habit. The Hon i per
fectly willing to walk on the ball, and
he has reached that mind, not by
cruel treatment, but by force of his
trainer's p.itienee and kintliu'ks and
Of courne, a vv lid-beast tanuvr sho ild
have a quick eje and delicate sense of
hearing, so that he may be warned
of a sudden spring at him or a rush
from behind; and it is important that
lie be a sober mnn, for alcohol breaks
the nerve or gives a false courage
worse than folly; but the quality on
which he must chiefly rely an 1 which
nlonc car. make him a great tamer
not a second-rate bungler Is a genu
ine fondness for his animals. Tills
does not mean that the nuhunls will
necessarily be fond of the tamer;
some will be fond of him, some will
be Indifferent to him, sonic will fear
nnd hntc him. Nor will the trainer's
fondness protect him from fang and
claw. We shall see that there is dan
ger always, accident often, but with
out the fondness there would he great
er danger and more frequent accident.
A fondness for lions and tigers gives
sympathy for them, sjnipathj gives
understanding of them, and under
standing gives mastery of them, or ns
much mastery as is possible. What
but this fondness would keep a tamer
constantly with his animals, not only
in the public show (the enslest part),
but In the dens, in the treacherous
runway, in the stiange night hours,
in the early morning romp, when no
one is looking, when there is no rea
son for being with them except tho
tamer's own joy In It?
I do not purpose now to present in
detnll the methods of taming wild
beasts, rather what happens after
they are tamed; but I may say that
n lion-tamer always begins by spend
ing weeks or months in gnining a
new animal's confidence.
Day nfter day he will stand for a
long time outside the cage, merely
looking nt the lion, talking to him, im
pressing upon the beast a genernl fa
miliarity with his voice and person.
And each time, ns he goes away, he Is
careful to toss a piece of meat as a
pleasant memento of his visit.
Later he ventures Inside the bars,
carrying some simple weapon a whip,
i rod, perhaps a broom, which is more
formidable than might be supposed,
through the jab of Its sharp bristles.
One tamer used a common chair with
much success against unbroken lions.
If the crenture came nt him, there
were the four legs In his fnce: nnd
soon the ehnlr c.ime to represent
boundless power to that Ignorantllon.
He feared It and hated It, as was
seen on one occasion when the tamer
left it in the cage and the lion prompt
ly fore it into splinters.
Days may pass before the Hon will
let his tamer do more than merely
stay inside the cage at a distance
Very well; the tnmer stoys there. He
waits hour after hour, week after
week, until n time comes when tho
Hon will let him move nearer, will
permit the touch of his hand, will
come forward for n p'ece of meat,
nnd at last treat him like n friend,
so that finally he may sit there quite
nt ease, and even read his newspn -
