THBv 5IT-TSBURG, PISFATCH M0NDA3", AEKEL ' 8; 1889: 8. - A . "XU I r TOWGMfyBEWABK Dr. De Witt Talmage Preaches in St. Louis From the Text, AS AN OX TO THE SLAUGHTER. He Points Out the Dangers of Borrowing, and Shows That IXEZimS POSSESSES SOME CAPITAL 1EFSCLU. TELEGRAM TO THE DISPATCB.1 . ST." LOUIS, April 7. The KeY. T. De "Witt Talmage, D. D., of Brooklyn, preached here this evening to a vast audi ence. His subject was "The Slaughter," and his text, Proverbs, vii, 21: "As an ox to the slaughter." The eloquent preacher said: There is nothing in the voice or manner of the butcher to indicate to the ox that there is death ahead. The ox thinks he is coins on to a rich pasture field of clover, where all day long he will revel in the herbaceous luxuri ance; but after a while the. men and the boys close in upon him with sticks and stones and shouting, and drive him through the bars a,nd Into a doorway, where he is rastencd, and with a well aimed stroke the ax fells him; and so the anticipation of the redolent pasture field is completely disappointed. So many a young man has been driven on by temptation to what he thought would he paradisiacal enjoyment; butarterawhile influences with darker hue and swath'ier arm close in upon him. and he finds that instead of making an excursion into a garden he has been driven "as an ox to the slanghter." First We are apt to blame young men for being destroyed when we ought to blame the influences that destroy them. Society slaughters a great many young men bv the behest, "You must keep up appearances; whatever be your salary, you must dress as well as others, you must wine and brandy as many friends, you must smoke as costly cigars, you must give as expensive entertainments, and you must live in as fashionable a boarding bouse. If you bavn't the money, borrow. If you can'f borrow make a false entry', or subtract here and there a bill from a bundle of bank bills; you will only have to make the deception a little while; in a few months, or in a year or two, you can make all right. Nobody will be hurt by it; nobody will be the wiser. You vourself will not be dam aged." By that awful process 100,000 men have been slaughtered for time and SLAUGHTERED FOR ETERNITY. Suppose you borrow. There is nothing wrong about borrowing money. There is hard ly a man in the house but has sometimes bor rowed money. Vast estates have been built on a borrowed dollar. But there are two kinds of borrowed money. Money borrowed for the purpose of starting or keeping up legitimate enterprise and expense, and money borrowed to get that which you can do without. The first Is right, the other is wrong. If you have money enough of your own to buy a coat, how ever plain, and then you borrow money for a dandy's outfit, you have taken the first revolu tion of the w heel down grade Borrow for the necessities: that may be well. Borrow for the luxuries; that tins your prospects over in' the wrong direction. The Bible distinctly siys the borrower is servant ot the lender. It is a bad state of things when you have to go down some other street to escape meeting some one whom you owe. If young men knew what is the despot ism of being in debt more of them would keep out of it. What did debt do for Lord Bacon, with a mind towering above the centuries? It induced him to take bribes and -convict him self as a criminal before all ages. What did debt do for Walter Scott? Broken hearted at Abbotsford. Kept him writing until his hand gave out in paralysis to keep the Sheriff away lroni his pictures and statuary. Better for him if he had minded the maxim which he had chis eled over the fireplace at Abbotsford: "Waste not. want net." The trouble is my friends, the people do not understand the ethics of going in debt, and that if you purchase goods with'no expectation of pay mg for them, or go into debts which you cannot meet, you steal just so muchmenev. If I go into a grocer's store and buy sugars and coffees and meat, with no capacity to pay for them and no intention of paying for them, I am more dishonest than if I go into the store, and when the grocer's face is turned the other way I fill my pockets with the articles of mer chandise and CARRY OFF A HAST. In the one case I take the merchant's time, and I take the time of his messenger to trans fer the goods to my house, while in the other case I take none of the time of the merchant, and I wait upon myself, and I transfer the goods without anv trouble to him. In other words, a sneak thief is not so bad as a man who contracts for debts he 'never 'expects to pay. - Yet in all our. cities there are families that move every May day to get into proximity to other grocers and meat shops and apothecaries. They owe everybody within half a mile of where they now live, and next May they will move Into a distant part of the city, finding a new lot of victims. Meann hile you, the honest family in the new house, are bothered day by day by the knocking at the door of disap pointed bakers, and butchers, anddrygoods dealers, and newspaper carriers, and you are asked where your predecessor is. You do not know. It was arranged ; on should not know. Meanwhile your 'predecessor has gone to some distant part of the city, and the people who have anything to sell have sent their wagons and stopped there to solicit the "valuable" cus tom of the new neighbor, and he. the new neighbor, with great complacency and with,an air of affluence, orders the finest steaks and highest priced sugars, and the best of the canned fruits, and. perhaps, all the newspapers. And the debts will keep on accumulating until he gets bis goods on the 30th of next April in the furniture cart. Now, let me say, if there are any such per sons in the bouse, if you have any regard -for your own convenience, you had better remove to some greatly distant part of the city. It is too bad that, having bad all the trouble of con suming the goods, you should also have the trouble of bing dunned! , And let me say that if you find that this pictures yonr own photo graph, instead of being in church you ought to be in the penitentiary! No wonder that so many of our merchants fail in business. THEY ARE SWINDLED into bankruptcy by these wandering Arabs, these nomads of city life. They cheat the gro cer out of the green apples which make them sick, the physician who attends their distress, and the undertaker who fits them out for de parture from the neighborhood where they owe everbody when they pay the debt of na ture, the only debt they ever do pay! Now our young men are coming up in this de praved state of commercial ethics, and I am so licitous about them. I want to warn them against being slaughtered on the rough edges of debt. You want many things you have not, my young friends. Yon shall have them if you have patience and honesty and Industry. Cer tain lines ot conduct always lead out to certain successes. There is a law which controls even those things that seem haphazard. I have been told by those who have observed that it is possible to calculate jusp how many letters will be sent to the Dead Letter office every year through misdirection: that it is possible to calculate just how many letters will be detained for lack of postage stamps through the f orgetf ulness of the senders, and that it is possible to tell just how many people will fall in the streets by slipping on an orange peel. In other words, there are no accidents. The most insignificant event you ever heard of is the link between two eternities the eternity of the past and the eternity oi tne luture. neaa uierignt way, young man, and you will come out at the right goal. Bring me a young man and tell me what his physical health is, and what his mental caliber, and w hat his habits, and I will tell you what will be his destiny for this world, and his des tiny for the world to come, and I will not make 6 inaccurate prophecies out of the SU0. All this makes me solicitous in regard to yonng men, arid I want to make them nervous in regard to the contraction of unpayable debts. I give yen a paragraph from MY OWlf EXPERIENCE. My first settlement as pastor was in a village. My salary was tSOO and a parsonage. The amount seemed enormous to me. I said to myself, "What all this for one year?" Lwas afraid of getting worldly under so much pros perity! 1 resolved to invite all the congrega tion to my house in groups of 2.5 each. We began, and they were the best congregation in all the world, and we felt nothing was too good for them, we piled all the luxuries on the table. I never completed the undertaking. At the end of six months I was in financial despair. I found what every young man learns in time to save himBelf, or too late, that ynu must measure the size of a man's body before you begin to cut the cloth for his coat. When a young man willfully and of choice, having the comforts of life, goes into the con traction of unpayable debts heJcnows not into what he goes. The creditors get after the debtor, the pack of hounds in full cry, and alas! for the reindeer. They jingle his doorbell be fore he gets up in the morning, they iin;le his doorbell after he has gone to bed at night. They meet him as he comes off his front steps. They send him a postal card, or a letter, in curtest style, telling him to pay up. They at tach his goods. They want cash, or a note at 30 days, or a note on demand. They call him a knave. They say he ttes. Ther want him dis ciplined at the church. They want him turned out of the bank. They come at him from, this side, and from that side, and from before, and from behind, and from above, and from be neath, and he is insulted and gibbeted, and sued, and dunned, and sworn at, until he gets the nervous dyspepsia, gets neuralgia, gets' liver complaint, gets heart disease, gets con vulsive disorder, gets consumption. Wow he is dead, and you say: "Of course they will let him alone." Oh, no! Now they are watchful to see whether there are any un necessary expenses at the obsequies, to see whether there is any useless handle on the casket, to see whether th.ere is any surplus plait on the shroud, to see whether the hearse is costly or cheap, to see whether the flowers sent to the casket have been bought by the family or donated, to see in whose name the deed to the grave is made out. Then they ran sack the bereft household, the books, the pict ures, the carpets, the chairs, the sofa, the piano, the mattresses, the pillow on which he dies. CURSED BE DEBT ! For the sake of your own happiness, for the sake of your good morals, for the sake of your immortal soul, for God's sake, young man, as far as possible, keep out of it. IL But I think more young men are slaught ered through irrcligion. Take away a young man's religion and you make him the prey of evil. We all know that the Bible is the only perfect system of morals. Now if you want to destroy the young man's morals take his Bible away. How will you do that? Well, you will caricature his reverence for the Scriptures, you will take all those incidents of the Bible which can be made mirth ot Jonah's whale, Sam son's foxes, Adam's rib then you will carica ture: eccentric Christians or inconsistent Christians, then you will pass off as your own all those hackneyed arguments against Christ ianity which are as old as Tom Paine, as old as Voltaire, as old as sin. Now you have captured his Bible, and .you have taken his strongest fortress: the way is comparatively clear, and' all the gates of his soul araset open in invita tion to the sins of earth and the sorrows of death, that they may come in and drive the stake for their encampment. A steamer 15,000 miles from shore wilh broken rudder and lost compass, and hulk leaking 59 gallons the hour, is better off than a young man when you'have robbed him of his Bible. Have you ever noticed how despicably mean it is to take away the world's Bible with out proposing a substitute? It is meaner than to come to a sick man and steal his medicine, meaner than to come to a cripple and steal his crutch, meaner than to come to a pauper and steal his crust, meaner than to come to a poor man and burn his house down. It is the worst of all larcenies to steal the Bible, which has been the crutch and medicine and food and eternal home to so .many! What a generous and magnanimous business infidelity has gone into! This splitting up of lifeboats and taking away of fire escapes and extinguishing of light houses. t FATAL FUN. I come out and I say to such people, "What are you doing all this for?" "Oh," they say, "just for fun." It is such fun to see Christians try to bold on to their Bibles! Many of them have lost loved ones, and have been told that there is a resurrection, and it is such fun to tell them there will be no resurrection! Many of them hare believed that Christ came to carry the bnrdens and to heal the wounds of the world, and it is such fun to tell them they will have to be their own savior! Think of the meanest thing you ever heard of; .then go down 1,000 feet underneath it, and you will find your self at the ton of a stair 100 miles long; go to the bottom of the stairs, and you will find a ladder 1,030 miles long; then go the foot of the ladder and look off a precipice half as far as from here to China, and you will find the head quarters of the meanness that would rob this world of its only comfort in life, its only peace in death and its only hope for immortality. Slaughter a young man's faith in God, and there is not much more left to slaughter. Now. what has become of the slaughtered? Well, some of them are in their father's or mother's house,broken down in health, waiting to die: others are in the hospital; others are in Greenn ood, or, rather, their bodies are, for their souls have cone on to retribution. Not much prospect for a young man who started life with good health and good education and a Christian example set him, and opportunity of usefulness, who gathered all bis treasures and put them in one box, and then dropped it into the sea. Now. how is this wholesale slaughter to be stopped? There is not a person in the house but is interested in that question. Young man, arm yourself. The object of my sermon is to put a weapon in each of your hands for your own defense. Wait not for Young Men's Christian Associations to protect you, or churches to protect you. Appealing to God for help, TAKE CARE OF YOURSELF. First, have a room somewhere that you can call your own. Whether it be the back parlor of a fashionable boarding house, or a room in the fourth story of a cheaD lodging, I care not. Only have that one room your fortress. Let not the dissipator or the nnclean step over the' threshold. If they come up the long flight of stairs and knock at the door, meet them face to face and kindly yet firmly refuse them admit tance. Have a few family portraits on the wall, if you brought them with you from your country home. Have a Bible on the stand. If you can afford it and can play on one, have an instrument of music harp or flute, or cornet, or melodeon. or violin, or plana Every morn-. ing before you leave that room, pray. Every night after you come home in that room, pray. Make that room your Gibraltar, your Sevasto pol, your Mount Zion. Let no bad book or newspaper come into that room, any more than you would allow a cobra to coil on your table. Take care of vourself. Nobody else will take care of you. Your help will not come np two or three or four flights of stairs; your help will come through the roof, down from heaven, from that God who in the 6,000 years of the world's history never betrayed a young man who tried to be good and a Christian. Let me say in regard to your adverse wordly circum stances, in passing, that yon are on a level now with those who are finally to succeed. Mark my words, young man, and think of it 3C years from now. You will find that those who 30 years from now are the millionaires of this country, who are the orators of the country, who are the poets of the country, who are the strong merchants of the country, who are the great philantbrophists of the country mightiest in church and state are this morn ing on a level with you, not an inch above, and you in straitened circumstances now. Herscbel earned his living by playing a violin at parties, and in thainterstices of the play be would go out and look up at the midnight heavens, the fields of his immortal conquests. George Stephenson rose from being the fore man in a colliery to be the most renowned of the world's engineers. No outfit, NO CAPITAL TO START WITH! Young man, go down to the Mercantile Li brary and get some books and read of what wonderful mechanism God gave you in your hand, in youi foot, in your eye, in your ear, and then ask some doctor to take you into the dis secting room and illustrate to you what you have read about, and never again commit the blasphemy of saying you have no capital to start with. Equipped! Why, the poorest young man in this house is equipped as only the God of the whole universe could affor 1 to equip him. Then his body a very poor affair compared with his wonderful soul oh, thit is what makes me solicitous. I am not so much anxious about you, young man, because you have so little to do with, as I am anxions about you because so have much to risk and lose or gain. There is no class of persons that so stir my sympathies as young men in rreat cities. Not quite enough salary to live on, and all the temptations that come from that deficit. In vited on all hands to drink, and their exhausted nervous system seeming to demand stimulus. Their religion caricatured by the most of the clerks in the store and most of the operatives in the factory. The rapids of temptation and death rushing against that young man 40 miles the hour, and be in a frail boat headed up stream, with nothing but a broken oar to work with. Unless Almighty God help them they will go under. Ah! when I told you to take care of yourself you misunderstood me if you thought I meant you are to depend on human resolution, which may be dissolved in the foam of the wine cup, or may be blown out with tho first gnst of Win POWDER Absolutely Purer This powder never varies.

I never shall forget a prayer I heard a young man make some 15 years ago. It was a very short prayer, but it was a tremendous prayer: "Oh, Lord, help us. We find it so vary easy to do wrong and so hard to do right. Lord, help us." That prayer, I warrant you, reached the ear of God, and reached his heart. And there are in this house 100 men who have found out 1,000 young men, perhaps, who have found out that very thing. It is so very easy to do wrong, and SO HARD TO DO RIGHT. I got a letter, only one paragraph of which I shall read: "Having moved around somewhat I have run across many ypung men of intelli gence, ardent strivers after that will-o'-the-wisp, fortune, and of one of these I would speak. He was a young Englishman of 23 or 31 years, who came to New York, where he had acquaint ances, with barely sufficient to keep him a couple of weeks. He had been tenderly reared; perhaps I should say too tenderly, and was not used to earning bis living, and found it ex tremely difficult to get any position that he was capable of filling. After many vain efforts in this direction he found himself on Sunday evening in Brooklyn, near your church, with about S3 left of his small capital. Providence seemed to lead him to yonr door, and he deter mined to go in and hear you. "He told me his going to hear you that night was undoubtedly the turning point in his life, for when he went into your church he felt des perate, but whilelistcning to your discourse his better nature got the mastery. I truly believe from what this young man told me that your soundingtbe depths ot his heart that night alone brought him back to his God whom he was so near leaving." The echo, that is of multitudes in the house. I am not preaching an abstraction, bnt a great reality. Oh! friendless young man, Ob! prodi gal young man. Oh! broken hearted young man, discouraged young man, wounded young man, I commend you to Christ this day, the best friend a man ever had. He meets you this evening. You have come here for this bless ing. Despise not that emotion rising in yonr soul: it is divinely lifted. Look into. tho face of Christ. Lift one prayer to your father's God, to yonr mother's God, and get the pardoning blessing. Now, while I speak, you are at the forks of the road, and this is the right road, and that is the wrong road, and I see you START ON THE BIGHT ROAD. One Sabbath morning, at the close of my service, I saw a gold watch of the world re nowned and deeply lamented violinist. OleBull. You remember he died in his island home off the coast of Norway. Tha,t gold watch he had wound up day after day through his illness, and then he said to his companion, "Now I want to wind this watch as long as I can, and then when I am gone I want you to keep it wound up until it gets to my friend. Dr. Dore mus, in New York, and then he will keep it wound up until his life is done, and then I want the watch to go to his young son, my especial favorite. The great musician, who more than any other artist had made the violin speak and sing and weep and laugh and triumph for it seemed when he drew the bow across the strings as if all earth and heaven trembled in delighted sympathy the great musician, in a room look ing off upon the sea, and surrounded by his fa vorite instruments of music, closed his eyes in death. While all the world was mourning at his departure. 16 crowded steamers fell into line of funeral procession to carry his body to the main land. There were 50.000 of nis coun trymen gathered in. an amphitheater of the hills, waiting to hear the eulogium. and it was said when the great orator of the dSy with stentorian voice began to speak, the 50,000 peo ple on the hillsides burst into tears. Oh! that was the close of a life that had done so much to make the world happy. But I have to tell you. young man, if you live right and die right, that was a tame scene compared with that which will greet you when from the gal leries of heaven the one hundred and forty and four thousand shall accord with Christ in crying. "Well done, thou good and faithful servant." And the influences that on earth you put in motion will go down from generation to gen eration, 'the influences you wound up handed to your children.Jand their influences wonnd up and handed to their children until watch and clock are no more needed to mark the progress, because time itself shall be no longer. 81.

ALWAYS LIVELY ALWAYS The above two sentiments are printed in capital letters in our busi ness vocabulary. We like them on general principles, and especially when in connection with young folk's wear. It suits the character of the little customers, the patterns of the goods for them, the brightness and briskness of waiting on them. Certainly the styles are here. Cer tainly the variety is here. Certainly the beauty of cut, trimming and workmanship are here, ?nd certainly, as a result of all these, THE TRADE IS HERE. Why, it's a positive fact EVERY BOY IN THE TWIN CITIES CAN BE QUICKLY, PR0PERLY.AND CHEAPLY DRESSED OUT OF KAUFMAN NS' abundant stock; and what a real handsome place is the immense space we devote to Boys' Clothing. And, remember, we are not experiment ing with this difficult branch of our business. We found "long time i ago"' the kind of material that is safe to put into Boys' Clothing so that the knees and elbows don't come through too soon. This is an im portant consideration to mothers with several boys. If you are inter ested in BOYS' SHIRT WAISTS, come right in and see them by the thousand every celebrated brand and new pattern in the country. We make a specialty of star waists and sell more of them than any three stores in this city put to gether. Why? Because we give you the best value in return for your money. See! Why not call and be convinced!
