Talmage Announces a Trip
Palestine and discourses
plhe Fairs of Tyre a Text for Presenting
America's Opportunity.
fc. .Brooklyn, October 6. me iiev. x. ue
CVitt Talmage, D. D., preached in the Tab
Icrnacle this morning on the subject, "The
'' Coming World's Fair; Shall it be Made a
kBlessing or a Curse?"
r- After announcing his subject Dr. J.ai
xnage said: "With the hearty consent of
ifthe elders and trustees of this church I
cleave on Wednesday, October 30, on the
'City of Paris,' for the Holy Land, Pales
tine, to be gone about two monies, l am
sure all my congregation will unite with
the officers in trivins their consent
fc-ffhen I tell you why I go. First, mv
F-l.: . : j .: 1 ..lr
fc congregation. I want to see the places as
P Eociated with our Lord's life and death. I
rbelieve I can make my pulpit work far
more efficient when I hare seen with my
own eyes Bethlehem and Nazareth and
.Tprnsftlcm and Calvarv and all the other
' places connected with the Savior's ministry,
f Those places cannot be visited healthfully
j in the summer and in time of usual vaca
tion. "What I learn and see, you will learn
I, and see when I come back. My
second reason for going is that I am writing
the life of Christ and I can be more accu
rate and graphic when I have been an eye
witness of the sacred place."
' Dr. Talmage's text was Ezekiel ixvii.,
I ,12: "They traded in thy fairs." He said:
( Fairs may be for the sale of goods or for the
j exhibition of goods on a small scale or a
large scale, for county or city, for one na
tion or for all nations. My text brings us
to the fairs of ancient Tyre, a city that is
1 now extinct. Part of the city was on an
island, and part on the mainland. Alexan
derer, the conqueror, was much embar
, .rasscd when he found so much of the city
"was on an island, for he had no shins. But
f his military genius was not to be balked.
Having marched his army to the beach, he
ordered them to tear up the city on the
mainland and throw it into the water and
, build a causeway 200 feet wide to the isl-
and. So they took that part of the city
which was on the mainland, and with it
built a causeway of timber and brick and
' stone, on which his army marched to the cap
ture of that part of the city which was on
the island, as though a hostile army should
put Brooklyn into the East river, and over
t it march to" the capture of New York. That
Tyrian causeway of ruins which Alexander's
army built, is still there, and by alluvial
deposits has permanently united the island
to the mainland, so that it is no longer an
island but a 'promontory. The sand, the
greatest of all undertakers for bnrying cities,
having covered up for the most nart Baal bee
and Palmyra and Thebes and Memphis and
Carthage and Babylon and Luxor and Jeri
cho, the sand, so small and yet so mighty, is
t now gradually giving rites of sepulture to
t what was lett of Tyre. Bnt, oh, what a
" magnificent city it once was! Mistress of
the sea! Queen oi international commerce!
All nations casting their crowns at her feet!
("Where we have in our sailing vesselsbenches
'of wood, she had benches of ivory. Where
we have lor our masts of ships sails of coarse
canvas, she had sails of richest embroidery.
The chapter from which my text is taken
after enumerating the richest countries in
f all the world says of Tyre: "They traded in
f thy fairs." Look in upon a world's fair at
Tyre. Ezekiel leads us through one depart
ment and it is a horse fair. Under fed and
over driven for ages, the horses of to-day
give you no iaea oi me spienaia animals
(which, rearing and plunging and snorting
nnd neighing, were brought down over the
plank oi the ships and led into the world's
lair at JLyre until .tzetiel, who was a min
ister of religion and not supposed to know
much about horses, cried out in admiration:
"They of the house of Togarmah traded in
thy fairs with horses."
Here in anotner department of that
World's Fair at Tyre, led on by EzeUel the
prophet, wp find everything all ablaze with
precious stones. Like petrified snow arc
the corals: like fragments of fallen sky are
the sapphires; and here is agate a-blush
jjWith all colors. What is that aroma
Swe inhale? It is from chests of cedar
which we open, and find them filled with
pall stvles of fabric But the aromatics in
crease as we pass down this lane of enchant
ment, and here are cassia and frankincense
and balm. Led on by Ezekiel the prophet,
we come to an agricultural fair with a dis-
ipjayof wheat from Minnith and Pannag,
rich as that oi our modern .Dakota or Michi
igan. And here is a mmeralogical fair, with
(specimens of iron and silver and tin and
lead and gold.
i But halt, for here is purple, Ty
'rian purple, all tints and shades,
deep almost unto the black and
bright almost unto the blue; waiting
lor Kings and Queens to order it made into
robes for coronation day; purple not like
that which is now made trom the Orchilla
weed, bnt the extinct purple, the lost pur
ple, which the ancients knew how to make
out of the gasteropod mollusks of the Medi
Oh, look at those casks of wine from Hel
ton! See those snow banks of wool from
the back of sheep that once pastured in
Silead. Oh, the bewildering riches and
Fariety of that World's Fair at Tyre!
But the world has copied these Bible men
. tioned fairs in all succeeding ages, and it
lis had its Louis the Sixth fair at Dagobert,
md Henry the First fair on St. Bartholo
. lew's day, and Hungarian fairs at Pestb,
q md Easter fairs at Leipsic, and the Scotch
Jains at Perth (bright was the day when I
as at one of them), and alterward came the
London world's lair, and the New York
world's fair, and the Vienna world's fair,
and the Parisian world's fair, and it has
been decided that, in commemoration of the
discovery of America in 1492, there shall be
held in this country in 1892 a World's Fair
that shall eclipse all preceding national ex
positions. I say, God speed the movement!
Surely the event commemorated is worthy
of all the architecture, and music, and pyro-
iccuuica, auu ciwiucukoiiu biupenuous plan
ning, and monetary expenditure and Con
gressional appropriations which the most
sanguine Christian patriot has ever dream
ed of.
Was any voyage that the world ever heard
of crowned with such an arrival as that of
Columbus and his men? After they had
been encouraged for the last few days by
flight of land birds and floating branches of
red berries, and while Columbus was down
in the cabin studying the sea chart, Martin
Pinzon, standing on deck and looking to
the South westjcried: "Landl Land! Land!"
And "Gloria in Excelsis" was sung in rain
ing tears on all the three ships ot the expe
dition. Most appropriate and patriotic and
Christian will bea commemorative World's
Fair in America in 1692.
Leaving to others the disenssion as to the
site of such Exposition and I wonder not
that some five or six of our cities are strug
gling to have it, for it will give to any city
to which it is assigned an impulse of pros
perity for a bundled years 1 say, leaving
to others the selection of the particular lo
cality to be thus honored, I want to say
'some things from the point of Christian
patriotism which onght to be said, and the
-earlier the better, that we get thousands of
people talking in the right direction, and
that will make healthful public opinion. X
beg you to consider prayerfully whatI feel
called upon of God as an American citizen
and as a preacher of righteousness to utter.
My first suggestion is that it is not wise,
as certainly it is not Christian, to continue
this wide and persistent attempt of Ameri
can cities to belittle and depreciate other
cities. It has been going on for years, but
now the spirit seems to culminate in this
discussion as to where the World's Fair
shall be held, a style of disenssion which
has a tendency to injure the success of the
Fair as a great moral aud patriotic enter
prise, after the locality has been decided
upon. There is such a thing as healthful
rivalry between cities, but you will bear me
out in saying that there can be no good to
come from the uncanny things said about
each other by New York and Chicago, by
Chicago and St Louis, by St. Paul and
Minneapolis, by Tacoma and Seattle, and
all through the States by almost every two
proximate cities. All cities, like individu
als, have their virtues and their vices. All
our American cities
What churches! What public libraries!
What asylums of mercy! What academies
of music! What mighty men in law and
medicine and art and scholarship! What
schools and colleges and universities. What
women radiant and gracious and an im
provement on all the generations of women
since Eve! What philanthropists who do
not feel satisfied with their own charities
until they get into the hundreds of thous
ands and the millions! What "God's
acres lor the dead, gardens of beauty ana
palaces of marble for those who sleep the
last sleep! Now stop your slander of Amer
ican cities. Do you say they are the cen
ters of crime and political corruption?
Please admit the fact that they are centers
of intelligence and generosity and the
mightiest patrons of architecture and sculp
ture and painting and music and reservoirs
of religious influence for all the continent.
It will be well for the country districts to
cease talkinc arainst ihe cities, and it will
be well for the city of one locality to stop
talking against the cities of other localities.
New York will not get the World's Fair by
depreciating Chicago, and Chicago will not
get the World's Fair by bombarding New
Another suggestion concerning the coming
exposition: let not the materialistic and
monetary idea overpower the moral and re
ligious. During that exposition, the first
time in all their lives, there will be thou
sands of people from other lands who will
see a country
Let us by an increased harmony among
all denominations of religion, impress other
nationalities, as ther come here that year,
with the superior advantage of having all
denominations equal in the sight of govern
ment All the rulers and chief men of
Europe belong to the state religion, what
ever it may be. Although our last two
Presidents have been Presbyterians, the
previous one was an Episcopalian, and the
two previous Methodists; and going further
back in that line of Presidents, we find Mar
tin Van Buren aDutch Reformed, and John
yuincy Adams a Unitarian; and a mans
religion in this country is neither hindrance
nor advantage in the matter of political ele
vation. All Europe needs that All the
world needs that A man's religion is some
thing between himself and his God, and it
must not, directly or indirectly, be inter
fered with.
Furthermore, during that exposition,
Christian civilization will confront barbar
ism. We shall, as a nation, have a greater
opportunity to make an evangelizing im
pression upon foreign nationalities than
would otherwise be afforded us in a quarter
of a century. Let the churches of the city
where the exposition is held be open every
day, and prayers be offered and sermons
preached and doxologies sung. In the less
than three years between this and that
world's convocation let us get a baptism ot
the Holy Ghost, so that the six months of
that World's Fair shall be 50 Pentecosts in
one, and instead of 3,000 converted, as in
the former Pentecost, hundreds of thousands
will be converted.
You must remember that the Pentecost
mentioned in the Bible oreurred when there
was no printing press, no books, no Christian
pamphlets, no religious newspapers, and yet
the influence was tremendous. How many
nationalities were touched? The account
says: "Parthians and MedesandEIamites,"
that is, people from the eastern countries;
Jrhrygia and Jrampbylia, that is, the
western countries; "Cyfene and strangers of
Home, Cretes and Arabians, that is, the
southern countries; but they were all moved
by the miehty spectacle. Instead of the 16
or 18 tribes of people reported at that Pente
cost, all the chief nations of Enrope and
Asia, North and South America, will be
represented at our World's Fair in 1892, and
a Pentecost here and then would mean the
salvation of the round world.
But, you say, we may have at that fair the
people of all lands and all the machinery for
gospelization. the religious printing presses
and the churches, but all that would not
make a Pentecost; we must have God.
Well, you can have Him. Has He not been
graciously waiting? and nothing stands in
the way but our own unbelief and indolence
and sin. May God break down the barriers!
The grandest opportunity for the evangel
ization of all nations since Jesus Christ died
on the cross will be the World's Exposition
ofl892. God may take us out of the har
vest field before that, but let it be known
throughout Christendom that that year, be
tween Mav and November, will be the
mountain of Christian advantage, the Alpine
and Himalayan height of opportunity over
topping all others tor salvation. Instead of
the slow process of having to send the gospel
to other lands by our own American mis
sionaries, who have difficult toil in acquir
ing the foreign langugc and then must con
tend with foreign prejudices,
to have able and influential foreigners con
verted during their visit to America and
then have them return to their native lands
with the glorious tidings! Ob, for an over
whelming work of grace for the year 1892,
that work beginning in the autumn of 1889!
Another opportunity, if our public men
sec it, and it is the duty of pulpit and
printing press to help them to see it, will be
the calling at that time and place of a great
peace congress for all nations. The conven
tion of representatives from the Govern
ments of North and South America, now at
Washington, is only a type of what we may
have on a vast and a worldwide scale at the
International exposition of 1892. Bv one stroke
the corgon of war might be slain and buried so
deep that neither trumpet of human 'dispute
nor'of archangel's blowinrfcould resurrect it.
When the last Napoleon called such a congress
of nations many did not respond, and those
that did respond gathered wondering what tniD
that wily destroyer of the French .Republic
and the builder of a French Monarchy
might spring on them. But what if
the most popular Government on earth I
mean the United States Government should
practically say to all nations: On the American
continent, in 1SB2. we will hold a World's Fair,
and all nations will send to it specimens of
their products, their manufactures and their
arts, and we invite all the Governments of
Enrope, Asia and Africa to send representa
tives to a peaco convention that shall be held
at the same time and place, and that shall es
tablish an international arbitration commis
sion to whom shall be referred all controver
sies between nation and nation, tbelr decision
to be final, and so all nations would be relieved
from the expense of standing armies and naval
equipment, ar having been made an everlast
ing impossibility.
All the nations of the earth worth considera
tion would come to it mighty men of England
and Germany and France and Russia and all
the other great nationalities, Bismarck who
worships the Lord of Hosts, and Gladstone
who worships the God of Peace, and Boulanger
who worships himself. The fact .is that the
nations are sick of drinking out of chalices
made ont of human skulls and filled with
blood. The United States Government Is the
only Government in the world that could suc
cessfully call snch a congress. Suppose France
should call it Germany would not come: or
Germany sbonld call It Franco would not
come; or Russia should call it, Turkey would
not come; or England should call it, nations
long jealous of her overshadowing power in
Europe would not come. America, In favor
with all nationalities, standinp on t independent
and alone. Is" the spot and 1892 will be the
time. May it please the President of the
United States, may it please the Secretary of
State, may It oleace tuo Cabinet, mav It pleas
the Senate and Hoose of Representatives, may
It please the printing prases and tbo churches
and the people who lift up and put down our
American rulers!
To them I make this timely and solemn and
Christian appeal. Bo you not think people die
fast enough without this wholesome butchery
of war? Do you not think that we can trust to
pneumonias and consumptions and apoplexies
and palsies and yellow fevers and Asiatic
choleras the work ot killing them fast enough?
Do you not think that the greedy, wide open
jaws of the grave ought to be satisfied if filled
by natural causes with hundreds of thousands
ii corpses a year?
Bo you not think we can do something better
with men than to dash their life out against
casements or blow them into fragments by tor
pedoes or send them out into the world where
they need all their faculties, footless, armless,
eyeless? Bo you not think that women,mlgbt
be appointed to an easier place than the edge
of a gravo trench to wring their pale hands and
weep out their eyesight in widowhood and
childlessness? Why, the last glory has gone
out of war.
There was a time when it demanded that
quality which we all admire namely, courage
lor a man bad to stand at tho hilt of bis sword
when the point pierced the foe, and while he
was slaying another the other might slay him;
or it was bayonet charge. But now it is cool
and deliberate murder, and clear out at sea a
bombshell can be hnrled miles away into a city,
or while thousands of private soldiers, who
have no interest in the contest, for they
were conscripted, are losing their lives, their
general may sit smoking Hne of the best
Havana cigars after a dinner of quail on toast
It may be well enough for graduating students
of colleges on commencement day to orate
about the poetry of war, but do not talk about
the poetry of war to the men of the Federal or
Confederate armies who were at the front or
to some of us who. as members of the Christian
commission, saw the ghastly hospitals at Antie-
um ana uagerstown. An: you may worsnip
the Lord of Hosts, I worship the "God of
Peace, who brought again from tbo dead our
Lord Jesus Christ that great Shepherd of the
sheep." "
War is an accursed monster and it was born
In the lowest cavern ot perdition, and 1 pray
that it may speedily descend to the place from
which it arose, its last sword and shield and
musket rattling on the bottom of the red hot
marl of hell. -Let there be called
for 1892, with delegates sent by all the decent
governments of Christendom, and while they
are in session, If you should some night go ont
and look into the sky above the Exposition
buildings, you may find that the old gallery of
crystal, that was taken down after the Bethle
hem anthem of 18 centuries ago was sung out
is rebuilt again in the clouds, and the same an
gelic singers arc returned with the same li
brettos of light to chant "Glory to God in the
highest and on earth peace, good will to men."
Again, I suggest in regard to tho World's
Fair that while appropriate places are pre
pared for all foreign exhibits, we make no
room for the Importation of foreign vices.
America has enough of its own, and we need
no new Installments of that kind. A world's
fair will bring all kinds of people, good and
bad. The good we must prepare to welcome,
the bad we must prepare to shun. The attempt
will again be made in 1892, as in 1876, to break
up our American Sabbaths. That attempt was
made at the Philadelphia Centennial, but was
defeated. The American Sabbath is tho best
kept Sabbath on earth. We do not want it
broken down, and substituted in the place,
thereof the Brussels Sabbath, the Vienna Sab
bath, tlie St Petersburg Sabbath or any ot the
foreign Sabbaths, which are no Sabbaths at
all. 1 think the Lord is more than generous in
asking only 52 days out of the 363 lor his serv
ice. You let the Sabbath go and with it will go
your Bible, and after that your liberties, and
your children or your grandchildren will be
here in America under a despotism as bad as in
those lands where they turn the Lord's Day
into wassail and frolic atwo "
Among those who come there will be, as at
other expositions, lordly people who will bring
their vices with them. Among the dukes and
duchesses and princes and princesses of other
lands are some of the best men and women of
all the earth. Remember Earle of Kintore,
Lord Cairns and Lord Snaftsbury. But there
is a:snobbery and fiunkeyism in American
society.that rnns after a grandee, a duke, a
lord or a prince, though he may be a walking
lazaretto and his breath a plague. It makes
the fortune of some of our queens of society to
dance one cotillion with one of these princely
lepers. Some people cannot get their hat otf
quick enough when they see such a foreign
lord approaching, and they do not care for the
mire into which they drop their knees as they
bow to worship. Let no splendor of "pedigree
or any pomp and paraphernalia of circum
stance make him attractive. There is only one
set of Ten Commandments that I ever heard
of, and no class ot men or women in all the
world are excused from obedience to those laws
written by finger ot lightning on the granite
surface of Mount Sinai. Surely we have
enough American vices without making any
drafts upon European vice for IS92,
By this sermon I would have the nation
made aware of its opportunity and get ready to
improve It and of some perils and get ready
to combat them. I rejoice to believe that the
advantages will overtop everything in that
"world's fair. What an Introduction to each
other of communities, of states, of republics,
of empires, of zones, of hemispheres! What

What Prominent New York Doctor hit to
Say upon the Subject which is Attracting
o much Attention.
"Do you believe In the Elixir of Life?" I asked
of a prominent NewYorfc physician, recently,
The, doctor thought a,moment, carefully, nnd
saldt "Certainly I do,.but not In the way In
which Doctors JJrown-Sequard or Hammond have
been describing It All that has beea said In the
press of the land for the past months proves that
something Is needed to assist and tustaln the vlUl
and often falling forces or life, but Mature never
intended the human body for injections, and they
arc always Injurious becausernnnatural."
"But is It not often done. Doctor?" '
"I am sorry to say It Is. Morphine Injections
are far too common, and they are the great cause
of that fearful living death known as the opium
habit There Is but one way to properly reach or
sustain the vitality and life, and that is through
the stomach, and there Is no discovery of modern
times which, if rightly used, does this so thor
oughly, keeps back disease and prolongs life, as
pure whiskey. Mind you, I say pure whiskey, for
all else Is injurious. The effects of a pure article
like Duffy's Pure Malt Whiskey are practically
those of an 'elixir of life. It tones up and
strengthens the system, wltbont Injurious reac
tion or without the formation of any habit. It
tends to renew life In the aged and restore It to
those In middle Hie. For women especially, who
are weak, languid or suffering as most women
are, it Is almout invaluable. All physicians learn
these things from their practice, and canuot but
be believers In a true and sensible 'elixir or life
like this pure article of which I have been speak
ing." The Doctor himself seemed to be a good example
of the truths he advanced, for his strong frame
and clear eye showed him to be in perfect health,
and I left blm much impressed by the clearness,
truthandcommonsenseofhlsstatements. oc7
The success that is attending the physicians
of the Pblypathlc Institute in the treatment of
all forms of kidney and urinary diseases Is truly
wonderfni. Among the many patients who
have been cured and have given testimonials
for publication, are Mr. H. Robertson, kidney
disease and dropsy; Mr. A Schermerhorn. who
had severe hemorrhages and lost three
quarts of blood at one time; Mr. J. V.
.Smith, whose disease caused him to be in
constant fear of becoming insane: a lady who
had a tumor, measured five feet around her ab
domen, and bad been unable to lie- down for
over three months, received an operation and
over SO quarts (60 pounds) of dropsical fluid
was taken from her; Mr. Hobry Walter,
rheumatism of many years standing. The
complication of diseases that aro the outcome
of diseased condition of the kidneys is really
alarming. If you have weakness or pain across
the small of the back, tired feeling,
with lack of ambition, scanty or copi
ous flow of urine, with pain
in voiding it, with a red or whitish sediment,
a pale, sallow or waxy skin, or pain in different
parts of the body, you have symptoms pointing
unmistakably to a diseased condition of the
kidneys, and you should lose no time in con
sulting some one who makes a specialty of your
disease. Br. Shaf er and his medical associates
give especial attention to this class of diseases.
Consultation free and price of treatment within
the reach ot all. Remember the Folypathic
Medical Institute is permanently located at

JJEECHANT & CO., importers and deal
ers in roofing plates, sheet copper, sheet
brass, 'etc.. New York, Philadelphia and
Chicago, are issning to the trade a neat little
illustrated descriptive pamphlet of 24 pages,
entitled "A Tin Boor," descriptive ot the
manufacture, sizes, thicknesses, weights and
brands of the various kinds of tin plate
used in roofing buildings. The treatise
fully describes the kinds of tin roofs, how
to put tin together, and the special advan
tages of standing seam roof, the allowances
for a greater amonnt of expansion and con
traction over that of the 'flat seam. Also
treats of the gutters, fire walls, soldering,
painting, suggestions, as builders' and car
penters' specifications, etc. This little work
has already entered upon its fourth edition,
evidencing the fact of its merit, and the
favor which it has met at the hands of the
trade. These will be mailed on application
to the head office or any of its branches.
