"Words of Inspiration In the Sermon of Dr. Talmagc. -He ftlunvs tin Tlint "We Have Mnnr Cclcstlitl Kyinimtlilr.erd lit' Our riltht with the I.lon of Tmliiy, ".ICopyrlght, 1002, by Loula Klopsch, N. Y.J Wnshlngton, Feb. 23. This discourse of Dr. Tnlinngo Is lull of inspiring thoughtH fur those who find life ii struggle and shows "that wo have many celestial sympa thizers; texts, Hebrews 12: IS "Seeing Ave nlso are compassed about with ro great u cloud of witnesses;" 1 Cor inthians 16:33: "1 have fought with beasts at Kphesils." Crossing the Alps by the Mont Cen ts pass or through the Mont Centa tunnel, you are in a few hours set down at Verona, Italy, and In a few .minutes begin examining one of tho grandest ruins of tho world, tho Amphitheater. The whole building weeps around you in a circle. You pfitand in the nrcnn where the combat was once fought or tho raeo run, and on nil sides tho heuts rise, tier above tier, until you cgunt 40 elevations, or galleries, as I shall see lit to call them, In which sat the senators, the kings and tho 2fl,000 excited specta tors. At tho Bides of tho arena and under tho galleries are the cages In which tho lions nnd tigers are kept without food until, frenzied with hunger and thirst, they are let out upon some poor victim, who, with his sword nnd alone, is condemned to meet them. I think that Paul lilm kcU once stood in such a place and that it was not only ilguratively, but literally, that he had "fought with beasts at Kphesus." Tho gala day has come. From all tho world the people are pouring Into Verona. Men, women nnd chil dren, orators nnd senators, great men and small, thousands upon thou sands come, until tho first gallery is full, nnd tho second, tho third, the fourth, tho fifth all the way up to the twentieth, all the way up to the thirtieth, all the way up to the forti eth. Every place Is filled. Immensity of audience sweeping the great cir cle. Silence. Tho time for tho con test has come. A ltoiunn oillcini leads forth the victim into the arena. Let him get his sword with firm grip into his right hand. The 25,000 sit breathlessly watching. I hear tho door at tho Bide of the arena crenk open. Out plunges the hnlf-starved lion, his tongue nthirst for blood, and with n roar that brings nil the gal leries to their feet he rushes against the sword of the combatant. Do you .know how strong n stroke a man will Btrike when his life depends upon tho first thrust of his blade? Tho wild beast, lame nnd bleeding, slinks back townrd the side of the nrcnn; then rallying Ids wasted strength he comes up with fiercer eye nnd more terrible roar than ever, only to bo driven back with a fatal wound, while the combatant comes in with stroke after stroke until the mon ster is dend at his feet, and the 25,- 000 clap their hands and utter a Bliout that makes the city tremble. Sometimes the nudlcnce came to Bee n race; sometimes to see gladi ators fight ench other, until the peo ple, cotnpasslonnte for the fallen, turned their thumbs up as an appeal that the vanquished be spared, and sometimes the combat was with wild beasts. To one of the llomnn nmphithpnt rlcnl audiences of 100,000 people Paul refers when he says: "YVo are com passed about with so great a cloud of witnesses." The direct reference In the last passage Is made to a race; but elsewhere having discussed that, 1 take now Paul's favorite Idea of the Christian life ns a combat. Tho fact Is that every Christian man hus a linn to fight. Yours is a bad temper. The gates of the arena have been opened, and this tiger has come nut to destroy your soul, it has Incqrnted you with many a wound. You have been thrown by It time and ugnin, but in the strength of God you have arisen to drio It back. I verily believe you will compter. 1 think that the temptation is getting weaker and weaker. You have git en It so ninny wounds that the prospect is that It will die, and you shall bo victor, through Christ. Courage, brother! Do not let the sands of tho arena drink the blood of your bOUll Your Hon Is the pnssion for strong drink. You may have contended against it for 20 years; hut It Is strong of body nnd thirsty of tongue. You have tried to light it back with broken bottle or empty wine flabk. Nay, that is not the weapon. With one horrible roar ho will seize thee by the throat nnd rend thee limb from limb. Take this weapon, sharp and keen reach up and get It from God's armory the sword of the Spirit. With thnt thou mayest drive him back and concpier! But why specify when every man and woman has n Hon to light? If there be one here who has no beset ting sin, lot him speak out, for him have I offended. If you have not fought tho lion, it is because you have let tho Hon ent you up. This Tory moment tho contest goes on The Trajan celebration, whero 10,000 filndlotors fought and 11,000 wild beasts wore slnln, was not so terrific a struggle as that which at this mo ment goes on in many a soul. Tho combat was for tho life of tho body; thUs Is for tho life of the soul. That was with wild beasts from tho jun gle; this Is with tho roaring liou of hell. Men think, when tho contend against an evil habit, that they have to light It all alono. Nol They stand In tho contcr of an Itnmeuso circle of .in m 'W sympnthy. Paul had been reciting the names of Abel, Enoch, Noah, Abraham, Sarah, Isaac, Joseph, Old con and llarak and then says: "llelng compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses." Before I get through I will show you thnt you light In an nrena, around which circle, in galleries above each other, all the kindling eyes nnd all tho sympathetic hearts of the ages, and at every victory gained there comes down the thundering applause of a great multitude that no man can number. "Being compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses." On the first elevation of the ancient amphitheater, on tl e day of a cele bration, sat Tiberius or Augustus or tho reigning king. So In the great arena of spectators that watch our struggles and In the first divine gal lery, as I shall coll it, sits our King, one Jesus. On his head ore many crowns. The Ilomnn emperor got his place by cold-blooded conquests, but our King both come to Ills place by the broken hearts healed and tho tears wiped away and the souls redeemed. Tho ltoiunn emperor snt, with folded nrms, indifferent ns to whether the swordsman or the Hon bent, but our King's sympathies ore nil with us nay, unheard of condescension! I see Him come down from the gallery Into the arena to help us In the fight, shout ing until all up and down His voice Is heard: "Fear not! I will help thee! I will strengthen thee by the right hand of My power!" They gave to the men in the nrenn In tho olden time food to thicken their blood, so that it would flow slowly nnd that for a longer time the people might gloat over the scene. But our King has no pleasure In our wounds, for we are bone of Ills bone, flesh of Ills flesh, blood of Ills blood. Once In the ancient nmphltheater n Hon with due paw caught the combat ant's sword and with hit other paw caught his shield. The man took his knlfo from his girdle and slew the beast. The king, sitting in the gnl lory, said: "That was not fair. The lion must be slain by n sword." Other lions were turned out, nnd the poor victim fell. You cry. "Shame! shnmel" nt such meanness. But tho King in tills case is our brother, nnd Ho will see thnt we hovo fair play. He will forbid the rushing out of more lions than we can meet. He will not suffer us to be tempted nboie that we are able. Thank Ood! Tho King Is In the gallery! His eyes nro on us. His heart is with us. His hand will deliver us. "Blessed are they who put their trust in Him." I look again, and I sec the angelic gnllery. There they are tho angel thnt swung the sword nt the gate of Eden, the some that Ezeklel bow up holding the throne of Ood, nnd from which I look away, for the splendor is insufferable. Hero ore the guardian angels. That one watched a patriarch; this one protoctedn child; thnt one has been pulling a soul out of temptation! All these ore messengers of light! Those drove the Spanish armada on the rocks. Tills turned Sennacherib's living host into n heap of 185,000 corpses. Those yonder chanted the Christmas carol over Bethlehem until the chant awoke the shepherds. These at creation stood In the balcony of Henven nnd serennded the new-born world wrapped In swaddling clothes of light. And there, holler nnd mightier thnn all, is Michael, the archangel. To command nn enrthly host gives dig nity, but this one is lender of the 20, 000 chariots of Ood and of the 10,000 times 10,000 angels. I think God gives command to the nrehnngel, nnd the nrcluingel to the seraphim, and tho seraphim to the cherubim, until nil tho lower orders of Heaven henr tho command nnd go forth on the high behest. Xow, bring on your lions! Who enn fenr? All the spectators In the angelic gallery are our friends. "He shnll give Ills angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways. They shnll bear thee up In their hands lest thou dash thy foot against a stone. Thou sholt trend upon the lion nnd odder; tho young Hon and the dragon shalt thou trample under foot." Though the arena be crowded with temptations, we shall, with thenngelie help, strike them down In the name of our God nnd leap on their fallen enr cnssesl 0 bending throng ot bright angelic faces nod swift wings and lightning foot, I hall you to-day from the dust and struggle of the nrenn! 1 look ngaln, and I see the gallery of tho martyrs. Who Is thnt? Hugh I.atlmer, sure enough! Be would not npnloglo for the truth ho preached, and so he died, the night before swinging from tho bedpost In perfect glee at the thought of emancipation, Who Is that army of O.OOO'? They are tho Thelmn legion who died for tho fnith. Here is a larger host in mag nificent nrrny, 884,000, who perished for Christ in the persecutions of Diocletian. Yonder is n family group, Felicltas of Home nnd her children. While they were dying for tho faith bho stood encouraging them. Ono son wns whipped to death by thorns; another was Hung from a rock; an other was beheaded. At last tho mother became a martyr. There they ore together, a family group in heaven! Yonder Is John, Bradford, who Bald In tho fire: "We shnll have a merry supper with tho Lord to-night!" Yonder is Henry Voes, who exclaimed as lie died: "If I had ten heads, they should all fall off for Christ!" Tho grent throng of tho martyrs! They hod hot lead poured down their throats; horses wore fas tened to their hands and other horses to their feet, and thus they were pulled npart; they had their tongues pulled out by red-hot pinchers; they were sewed up In tho skins of ani mals and then thrown to the dogs; they were daubed with combustibles nnd sot on flrel If all the martyrs stakes that hovo been kindled could bo set ut proper distances, they would moke the midnight oil tho world over bright ns noonday! And now they sit yonder In tho martyrs' gallery. For them the fires of perse cution have gone out; the swords nro shenthed ami tho mob hushed. Now they wntch us with an all observing sympathy. They know nil the pnln, nil the hardship, nil the anguish, nil the Injustice, all tho privation. They cnnniit keep still. They cry: "Cour age! Tho fire will not consume; tho floods cannot drown; tho lions can not devour. Courage down there In the arena!" I look ngain, and 1 see another gal lerythat of eminent Christians. Whnt strikes me strangely is tho mixing in companionship of thoso who on enrth could not agree. Thero is Albert Barnes nnd around him the presbytery who tried him for hetero doxy! Yonder nro Lyman Beechcr nnd the church court that denounced him! Stranger than all, thero nro John Calvin and James Arminiusl Who would have thought that they, would sit so lovingly together? There nre Ocorge Whlteflcld nnd the ministers who would not let him come into their pulpits becnuso they thought him a fanatic. There arc tho sweet singers Toplndy", Montgomery, Charles Wesley, Isaac Watts and Mrs. Sigourney. If henven had hod no mu sic before they went up, they would have started the singing. And thero tho band of missionaries David Abeel, talking of China redeemed; nnd John Scudder, of India saved; anil David Drslnerd, of the aborigines evnngelied; and Mrs. Adonlrom Jud son, whose prayers for Burma took heaven by violence! All these Chris tians lire looking into tho nrenn. Our struggle is nothing to theirs! Do we In Christ's cause sutler from the cold? They walked Greenland's ley mountains. Do we suiter from the hent? They sweltered in trop ics. Do we get fatigued? They faint ed, with none to euro for them but cannibals. Arc we persecuted? They were nnnthemotied. And as they look from their gallery and sec us falter In the presence of the lions I seem to hear Isaac Watts address ing us in his old hymn, only a'llttlo changed: Must you bo cnrrlcd to the skies On Howry beds of ease AVhllo others fought to win tho prize Or sii II I'd through bloody sens? Tnplady shouts in his old hymn: Your harps, ye trcmbllnc snlnts, Down from tho willows take; Loud to the praise of love divine Bid every strlnc awake. While Charles Wesley, the Metho dist, breaks forth in words n little varied: A charge to keep you have, A God to Klortfy, A never dying soul to save And lit It for tho sky! I look again, nnd I see the gnllery of our deported. Many of thowe in tho other galleries we have heard of, but these we knew. Oh, how familiar their faces! They sat ot our tables, and we wnlked to the house of God in com pany. Have they forgotten us? Those fnthcrB and mothers stnrted us on the road of life. Are they careless as to what becomes of us? And those chil dren do they look with stolid indiffer ence ns to whether we win or lose this battle of life? They remember the day they left us. They remember the agony of the last farewell. Though years in Heaven, they know our faces. They remember our sorrows. They spenk our nnmes. They wntch this fight for Heaven. Nay, I seo them rise up nnd lean over and wave before us their recognition nnd encouragement. Thnt gallery is not full. They nre keeping places for us. After we have Blaln the lion they expect the King to call us, saying: "Come up higher!" Between the hot struggles In the nrena I wipe the sweat from my brow nnd stnnd on tiptoe, reaching up my right hand to clasp theirs In rapturous handshaking, while their voices come ringing down from the gnllery, crying: "Be thou faithful unto death, and you shnll have a crown!" But here I pnuse, overwhelmed with the majesty nnd the joy of the scene! Gnllery of the King! Gallery of an gels! Gallery of prophets and apos tles! Gallery of martyrs! Gallery of saints! Gallery of friends nnd kindred! 0 majestic circles of light ojid love! Throngs, throngs, throngs! Bow shnll we stnnd the gue of the unlvcrso? Myriads of eyes beaming on us! Myri ads of hearts beating In sympathy for us! How shnll we ever dnro to sin ngaln? How shnll we ever become dis couraged again? How shnll we ever feel lonely again? With God for us nnd angels for us nnd prophets and apos tles for us and the grent souls of the ages for us and our glorified kindred for us shnll we give up the fight nnd die? No, Son of God, who didst die to save us! No, ye angels, whose wings are spread forth to shelter us! No, ye prophets and npnstlcs, whose warn ings stnrtlo us! No, yo loved ones, whose nrms ore outstretched to recelvo us! No; we will never surrender! Sure I must flKht If I would reign, He faithful to my Lord, And bear the cross, enduro the pain. Supported by thy word. Thy snlnta in nil this glorious war Bhnll conquer though thoy die; They seo tho triumph from afar And seize It with their eye. When that Illustrious day shall rise And all thlno armies shine In robes of victory through tho skies, Tho glory shall be thine. My hearers, shall we die in the arena or rise to join our friends In tho gal lery? Through Christ we mny come off more than conquerors. A soldier dying in the hospital rose up in bed tho last moment and cried: "Here, hero!" His attendants put him back on his pil low and asked him why ho shouted "Here!" "Oh, I heard the roll call of Heaven, nnd I wns only answering to my nn me I" I wonder whether after this battle of this llfo Is over our names will bo called in tho muster roll of tho pardoned nnd glorified nnd, with tho joy of Henven breaking upon our souls, shull cry; "Here, hcrol" Twenty-four Dcnro Wcro Metunior- phased intol KIKb '.Tuesday-Fun- Bton a Life Member Tuesday at tho LElks hall aU tho local Elks and a goodly contingent from out of town witnessed tho sprout ing of antlers on tho brows of twenty four candidates. At tho head of tho now herd wore General Funston and Lloutenout Mitchell, both of whom wcro made life members of loin lodgo and rolloved of tho necessity ofipaylng dues to keep In good standing. Another unusual foaturo of tho in itiation was that Mr. David Dolby was a eandidato. Mr. Dalby is oighty ono years old, but is halo and hearty and a boy at heart. When ono of tho speakers called nttcntlon to him tho banqueters cheered Mr. Dalby huartl- iy. As It was known that tho ceremo nies would bo long the work bogan about 8 Jo'clock, at which tlmo tho lodgo room, in splto of its unusual slzo was crowded with spectators. At tho right hand of tho Exulted Ruler Mr. J. V. French, past Exalted Kulor of Iola lodgo was seated, and at tho loft Mr. Ed Etnrioh, past Exalted Ru ler of Pittsburg lodge. Tho work of initiation scorned to bo perfectly satis factory both to tho audlcnco and to tho candidates and Immediately after wards, about 11 o'clock an adjourn ment wns taken to tho banquet hull, Tho lunch was spread In tho largo room adjoining tho lodgo hall proper. Four tables supplied places for all and tho banquet progressed without Incident until John Goshorn, In tho capacity of toast-master, nroso and appointed several policemen toenforce ills orders. Whom ho culled on arose, voluntarily or with assistance t. General Funston thanl eel tho lodgo for tho llfo membership i ml oxprossed his satisfaction in finding tho village of his boyhood spread to a city. He does uot regret that ho sailed for tho Philippines and so was not initiated Into tho San Francisco lodgo as had been arranged. Explaining that ho was not much of a talker, tho Genernl was interrupted by a volcothot sounded very much like Colonel Saphar, which insinuated strongly that Funston was "a pretty good fighter, however." Mr. French when called on Imado a talk in his usual happy vein, express ing his pleasure in being back In Iola (or a visit, dipt. Watson, of Pittsburg, who commanded a company In tho Twen tieth Kansas, said ho was dissatisfied. Ho came many miles to seo Funston grovel In tho dust. Uo .recalled tho days when he ( Watson ) paraded in tho sand at San Francisco and saluted tho General on horseback and he had hoped thnt now tho tables ere to bo turned. Mr. Watson made a witty and interesting talk, but got in troublo by stating that ho cumo from tho best conl town on earth to tho best gas town on earth through an Intervening desert. Judgo Cates, of Chanuto, wanted to know about tho desert, but was finally pacified by the thought that Watson probably traveled via Ft. Scott. Several traveling men nnd a fow members of tho theatrical company now playing hero wore present and some clover dialect storlos, songs and recitations wero given. It wns closo to 1 o'clock when tho banqueters left tho tablo, nil ugreolng that tho ovenlng was ono long to bo remembered by rea son of tho good time enjoyed and be cnuso of tho unusual material for can didates. '1 ho now Elks aro: General Funston, Lieut. Mltcholl, M. P. Ilelmlck, J. G. Mlttlebach, L. W. Moody, C. F. Conkling, D. H. Plngreo, S. L. Wing David Dalby, D. W. Hold, L. H. finird, A. P. Harris, J.

Funston Left Yesterday General Funston has returned to his homo at Carlylo for a short visit with his parens nnd relatives. While In Iola ho was dined by Mr. and Mrs. T. S. Stover nnd In tho ovenlng a good many old friends dropped in and hnd a vory pleasant visit, the General apparently enjoying thoroughly tho visit with his first friends. Tomorrow ho lonves for New York elty and will go from thero to Washington to ro port at headquarters. It is probable hat he will not roturn to Iola. Now unloading at Clalrborno's mill 5,000 bushels Iowa corn, Corn chop nt tho mill $1.35 per 100 pounds.

A Day ot Divorce Coses Tuesday tho district court seemed to bo dovoted ilargoly to divorco cases. Arthur Bean was granted a divorco from Fnitnu Bean. Thocasoof Graco Simmons who seeks divorco from Ulysses Simmons was continued. Tho Interesting case, however, was tho suit of Dr. Sherman Footo of Gas City. This is tho gentleman who filed tho most astonishing petition that over graced tho records of the county. Ills very thoughtless wife left him, taking the very things that tho doctor prized most, including a magnificent spool man of tapis vermis fourteen feet long. Tho doctor appeared in court and tho lawyers saw to it that his grievances wcro clearly understood. So tho court granted his divorce. Mr. Rose appeared and his suit against the LanyotiiZlncCompany to set asldo a gas leaso was called. Tho Aetna Building and Loan Com pany was granted a judgment against U. M. Barker for SW2MS. Ordered to Vucute. Business relations between tho Foundry and tho Pinning Mill havo taken nn unfortunato turn. Tho Plan ing Mill people held a lease on that part of tho plant last year nnd the leaso contained a clause giving the Planing Mill company tho option of renewing the leaso this year provided thirty days written notice was given. It was the understanding between tho two companies that tho leaso would bo renewed and Mr. Chapman had said several times that ho deslrod tho ar rangement to stand. Mr. Kelley told Mr. Chapman tho day ho left hero for tho last tlmo that ;ho would tako tho plant again, that being tho date on which according to tho agreement the notlco was to bo served. Both companies re-organized and last week tho Planing Mill presented tho Foundry officers tho leaso for tho coming year ready to sign. Tho man ager raised somo discussion about one clause, and said ho wanted to talk it over with the rest of tho compary. Monday tho members of tho Planing Mill Company wcro served a lega paper notifying them to vncato tho premises by March 3rd. Tho manager of tho Foundry being out of town nothing could bo found out ns to tho reason for this now move or tho plans of tho Foundry people. Thoy have talked somo of soiling tho Iola plant slnco Mr. Chapman's death nnd that may bo the causo of tho notlco being served. Tho Planing Mill Company feols that It has a legal right to hold tholr leaso for the coming year and say that thoy will st mid ia suit in tho courts beforo thoy will give possession. Tho com pany Is composed of Iola men and ha dono a nlco business und It is hoped that somo friendly arrangment can bo mado whereby they may continuo thoir business. Divisou of School Money.
