"Marriage Cor' Worldly Success Without B«|ard to Moral Character" the Sub Ject—Men Who Pretend to Despise Be llfton Are Bank Hypocrites. BROOKLYN, Jan. 15.—In the Brooklyn Tabernacle this morning the Rev. T. De Witt Talmage, D. D., preached the second of the series of sermons to the women of America, with important hints to men. The subject of the sermon was, "Mar riage for worldly success without regard to moral character," and the text was from I Samuel xxv, 3: "And there was man in Maon, whose possessions were In Carmel, and the man was very great, and he had three thousand sheep and a thousand goats." Dr. Talmage said: My text "introduces us to a drunken bloat of large property. Before the day of safety deposits and government bonds and national banks people had their in vestments in flocks and herds, and this man, Nabal, of the text, had much of his possessions in live stock. He came also of a distinguished family and had glojious Caleb for an ancestor. But this descendant was a sneak, a churl, a sot and a fool. One instance to illustrate: It was a wool raising country, and at the time of shearing a great feast was pre pared for the shearers and David and his warriors, who had in other days saved from destruction the threshing floors of Nabal, sent to him asking, in this time of plenty, for some bread for their starv ing men. And Nabal cried out: ''Who is David?" As though an Englishman had said, "Who is Wellington?" or a German should say, "Who is Von Ifoltke?" or an American should say, •'Who is Washington?" Nothing did Nabal give to the starving men, and that night the scoundrel lay dead drunk at hoihe, and the Bible gives us a full length picture of him sprawling and maudlin and helpless. Now that was the man whom Abigail, the lovely and gracious and good woman married—a tuberose planted beside a thistle, a palm branch twined into a wreath of deadly nightshade. Surely that was not one of the matches made in heaven. We throw up our hands in hor ror at that wedding. How did she ever consent to link her destinities with such a creature! Well, she no doubt thought that it would be an honor to be associ ated with an aristocratic family, and no one can despise a great name. Besides this, wealth would come and with it chainB of gold and mansions lighted by Bwinging lamps of aromatic oil, and re sounding with the cheer of banqueters seated at tables laden with wines from the richest vineyards, and fruits from ripest orchards, and nuts tlireshed from foreign woods, and meats smoking in platters of gold, set on by slaves in bright uniforms. Before she plighted her troth with this dissipated man she sometimes said to herself: "How can I endure him! To be associated for life with such a debauche I cannot and will not!" But then again she said to her self: "It is time I was married, and this is a cold world to depend on, and perhaps I might do worse, and may be I will make a sober man out of him, and marriage is a lottery anyhow." And when one day this representative of a great house presented himself in a paren thesis of sobriety, and with an assumed geniality and gallantry of manner, and with promises of fidejity and kindness and self abnegation, a June morning smiled on a March squall, and the great souled women surrendered her happiness to the keeping of this infamous son of fortune whose possessions were in Car mel and the man was very great, and he had three thousand sheep and a thousand goats. Behold here a domestic tragedy re peated every hour of every day all over Christendom—marriage for worldly suc cess without regard to character. So Marie Jeanne Phlipon, the daughter of the humble engraver of Paris, became the famous Mme. Roland of history, the vivacious and brilliant girl united with the cold, formal, monotonous man be cause he came of an affluent family of Amiens and had lordly blood in his veins. The day when, through political revolu tion, this patriotic woman was led to the scaffold, around which lay piles of human heads that had fallen from the ax, and she said to an aged man whom she had confronted as they ascended the scaffold: "Go first that you may not witness my death," and then undaunted took her turn to die—that day was to her only the last act of a tragedy of which her uncongenial marriage day was the first- Good and genial character in a man, the very first requisite for a woman's happy marriage. Mistake me not as depreciative of worldly prosperities. There is a religious cant that would seem to represent poverty as a virtue and wealth as a crime. I can take you through a thousand mansions where God is as much worshiped as he ever was in a cabin. The Gospel inculcates the virtues which tend toward wealth. In the millennium we will all dwell in palaces and ride in chariots and sit at sumptuous banquets and sleep under rich embroideries and live 400 or 500 years, for, if according to the Bible in those times, a child shall die 100 years old, the average of human life will beat least five centuries. The whole tendency of sin is toward poverty and the whole tendency of righteousness is toward wealth. Godli ness is profitable for the life that now is 88 well as for that which is to come. No inventory can be made of the picture galleries consecrated to God, and of sculpture and of libraries and pillared magnificence and of parks and fountains and g»rdenn in the ownership of good men and women. The two most lordly residences in which I was ever a guest had morning and evening prayers, all the employes present, and all day long there was an air of cheerful piety in the conversation and behavior. Lord Radstock carried the Gospel to the nobility. Lord Cavan and Lord Cairns spent their vacation in evangelistic services. Lord Congleton became mis plenary to Bagdad. And the Christ who WM born in an eastern caravansary has again and again lived |n a palace, It is a grand thing to have plenty of off money, and bones that don't compel jWtotakatiM every lumbering esJis! •%r-' if^ riiiT A$«r and lazy vehicle and books of history that give you a glimpse of all the past and shelves of poetry to which you may go and ask Milton or Tennyson or Spen cer or Tom Moore or Robert Burns to stop now and spend an evening with you, and other shelves to wliicn you may go while you feel disgusted with the shame of the world, and ask Thackeray to express your chagrin, or Charles Dickens to express the Pecksniflianism, or Thomas Carlyle to thunder your in dignation or the other shelves where the old gospel writers stand ready to warfa and cheer us while they open doors into that city which is- so bright the noonday sun is abolished. There is no virtue in owning a horse that takes four minutes to go a mile, if you can own one that can go in a little over two minutes and a half no virtue in running into the teeth of a northeast wind with thin apparel, if you can afford furs no virtue in being poor when you can honestly be rich. There are names of men and women that I have only to mention, and they suggest not only wealth, but religion and generosity and philanthropy, such as Amos Lawrence, James Lennox, Peter Cooper, William E. Dodge, Shaftesbury, Miss Wolfe and Mrs. Astor. A recent writer says that of fifty leading business men in one of our Eastern cities, and of the fifty leading business men of one of our Western cities, three fourths of them are Christians. The fact is, that about all the brain and the business genius is on the side of religion. Infidelity is incipient insanity. All infidels are cranks. Many of tliem talk brightly, but you soon find that in their mental machinery there is a screw loose. When they are not lecturing against Christianity they are sitting in barrooms squirting tobacco juice, and when they get mad swear till the place is sulphurous. They only tallr to keep their courage up, and at brat will feel like the infidel who begged to be buried with his Christian wife and daughter, and when asked why he wanted such burial replied: "If there be a resurrec tion of the good, as some folks say there will be, my Christian wife and daughter will somehow get me up and take me along witli them." Man may pretend to despise religion, but they are rank hyprocrites. The sea captain was right when he came up to the village on the sea coast and insisted on paying $10 to the church, although he did not attend himself. When asked his reason, he said that he had been in the habit of carrying cargoes of oysters and clams from that place, and he found since that church was built the people were more honest than they used to be, for before the church was built he often found the load, when he came to count it, a thousand clams short. Yes. God liness is profitable for both worlds. Most of the great, honest, permanent worldly successes are by those who reverence God and the Bible. But what I do say is, that if a man have nothing but social position and financial resources, a woman who puts her happiness by marriage in his hand re-enacts the folly of Abigail when she accepted disagreeable Nabal, "whose possessions were in Carmel, and the man was very great, and he had three thousand sheep and a thousand goats." If there be good moral character ac companied by affluent circumstances I cangratulate you. If not, let the morn ing lark fly clear of the Rocky mountain eagle. The sacrifice of woman on the altar of social and financial expectation is cruel and stupendous. I sketch you a scene you have more than once wit nessed. A comfortable home with noth ing more than ordinary surroundings, but an attractive daughter carefully and Christianly reared. From the outside world comes in a man with nothing but money, unless you count profanity and selfishness and fondness for champagne and general recklessness as a part of his possession. He has his coat collar turned up when there is no chill in the air, but because it gives him an air of abandon, and eyeglass, not because he is near sighted, but because it gives a classical ap pearance, and with an attire somewhat loud, a cane thick enough to be the club of Hercules and clutched at the middle, his conversation interlarded with French phrases inaccurately pro nounced, and a sweep of manner indicat ing that he was not born like most folks, but terrestrially landed. By arts learned of the devil he insinuates himself into the affections of the daughter of a Christian home. All the kindred con gratulates her on the almost supernat ural prospects. Reports come in that the young man is fast in his habits, that he lias broken several young hearts and that he is mean and selfish and cruel. But all this is covered up with the fact that he has several houses in his own name, and has large deposits at the bank, and, more than all, has a father worth many hundred thousand dollars and very feeble in health and may any day drop off, and this is the only son, and a round dollar held close to one's eye hemjftmner Subscribe for The Times, Official Paper is large enough to shut out a great desert, and how much more will several bushels of dollars shut out. The marriage day comes and goes. The wedding ring was costly enough and the orange blossoms fragrant enough and the benediction solemn enough and the wedding march stirring enough. And the audience shed tears of sympathetic gladness, supposing that the craft con taining the two lias sailed off on a placid lake, although God knows that they are launched on a Dead sea, its waters brackish with tears and ghastly with ghastly faces of despair floating to the surface and then going down. There they are, the newly married pair in their new home. He turns out to be a tyrant. Her will is nothing, his will everything. Lavish of money for liis own pleasure, he begrudges lier the pennies he pinches out into her trembling palm. Instead of the^Jpnd words she left behind in home, now there are complaints and fault findings and curses. He is the master and she the slave. The worst villain on earth is the man who, having captured a woman from her father's house and after the oath of the marriage altar has been pro nounced, says, by his manner if not in words: "I have you now in my power. What can you do? My arm is stronger than yours. My voice is louder than yours. My fortune is greater than your* My name is mightier than yours, Now crouch before me like a dog. Now crawl away from me like a reptile. Too are nothing but a woman, anyhow. j_ Down, you miserable wretch!" Can halls of mosaic, can long linna of Etrus can bronze, or statuary by Palmers and Powers and Crawford and Chantry and Canova, can galleries rich from the pencil of Biemtadt and Church and Kenset and Cole and Cropeey, could flutes played on by an Ole Bull, or pianos fingered by a Gottschalk, or solos warbled by a Sonntag, could wardrobes like that of a Marie An toinette, could jewels like those of a Eugenie make a wife in such a com panionship happy? Imprisoned in a castle! Her gold bracelets are the chains of a lifelong servitude. There is a sword over her every feast, not like that of Damocles, staying suspended, but dropping through her lacerated heart. Her wardrobe is full of shrouds for deaths which she dies daily, and she is buried alive though buried under gorgeous upholstery. There is one word that soundB under the arches and rolls along the corridors and weeps in the falling fountains and echoes in the shutting of every door and groans in every note of stringed and wind instru ment: "Woe! Woe!" The oxen and sheep in olden times brought to the temple of Jupiter to be sacrificed used to be covered with ribbons and flowers ribbons on the horns and flowers on the neck. But the floral and ribboned deco rations did not make the stab of the butcher's knife less deathful, and all the chandeliers you hang over such a woman, and all the robes with which you enwrap her, and all the ribbons with which you adorn her, and all the bewitching charms with which you embank her footsteps are the ribbons and flowers of a horrible butchery. As if to show how wretched a good woman may be in splendid surroundings we have two recent illustrations, two ducal palaces in Great Britain. They are the focus of the best things that are possible in art, in literature, in architec ture, the accumulation of other estates until their wealth is beyond calculation and their grandeur beyond description. One of the castles has a cabinet set with gems that cost 12,500,000, and the walls of it bloom with Rembrandts and Claudes and Poussins and Guidos and Raphaels, and there are Southdown flocks in sum mer grazing on its laws and Arab steeds prancing at the doorways on the "first open day at the kennels." From the one castle the duchess has removed with her children because she can no longer endure the orgies of her husband, the duke, and in the other castle the duchess remains confronted by insults and abom inations in the presence of which I do not think God or decent society requires a good woman to remain. Alas for those ducal country seats! They on a large scale illustrate what on a smaller scale may be seen in many places—that with out moral character in a husband all the accessories of wealth are to a wife's soul tantalization and mockery. When Abi gail finds Nabal, her husband, beastly drunk, as she comes home from inter ceding for his fortune and life, it was no alleviation that the old brute had posses sions in Carmel, and "was very great, and had three thousand sheep and a thousand goats," and he the worst goat among them. The animal in his nature seized the soul in its mouth and ran off with it. Before things are right in this world genteel villians are to be expurgated. Instead of being welcomed into respecta ble society, because of the amount of stars and garters and medals and estates they represent, they ought to be fumi gated two or three years before they are allowed, without peril to themselves, to put their hands on the door knob of a moral house. The time must come when a masculine estray will be as repugnant to good society as a feminine estray, and no coat of arms or family emblazonry or epaulet can pass a Lothario unchallenged among the sanctities of home life. By what law of God or common sense is an Absalom better than a Delilah, a Don Juan better than a Messalina? The brush that paints the one black must paint the other black. But what a spectacle it was when last summer much of "water ing place" society went wild with en thusiasm over an unclean foreign digni tary, whose name in both hemispheres is a synonym for profligacy, and princesses of American society from all parts of the land had him ride in their carriages and sit at their tables, though they knew him to be a portable lazaretto, a charnel house of moral putrefaction, his breath a ty phoid, his foot that of a Satyr and his touch death. Here is an evil that men cannot stop, but women may. Keep all such out of your parlors, have no recog nition for them in the street, and no more think of allying your life and des tiny with theirs than 'gales from Araby" would consent to pass the honeymoon with an Egyptian plague. All that money or social position a bad man brings to a woman in marriage is a splendid despair, a gilded horror, a brilliant agony, a prolonged death, and the longer the marital union lasts, the more evident will be the fact that she might better never have been bom. Yet you and I have been at brilliant weddings where, before the feast was over, the bride groom's tongue was thick and his eye glassy and his step a stagger as he clicked glasses with jolly comrades, all going with lightning limited express train to the fatal crash over the embankment of a ruined life and a lost eternity. Woman, join not your right hand with such a right hand. Accept from such an one no jewel for finger or ear, lest that sparkle of precious stone turn out to be the eye of a basilisk, and let not the ring come on the finger of your right hand lest that ring turn out to be one link of a chain that shall bind you in never ending captivity. In the name of Sod and heaven and home, in the name of all time and all eternity I for bid the banns! Consent not to join one of the many regiments of women who have married for worldly success with out regard to moral character. If you are ambitious, oh woman, for noble affiancing, why not marry a king? And to that honor you are invited by the monarch of heaven and earth, and this day a voice from the skies sounds forth: "As the bridegroom rejoiceth over the bride so shall thy God rejoice over thee." Let him put upon thee the ring of this royal marriage. Here is an honor worth reaching after. By repentance and faith you may come into a marriage with the emperor of universal dominion, and you may be an empress onto God forever, and reign with him in palaces that the i! Jfifdt Milium centuries cannot crumble or cannonades demolish. High worldly marriage is not neces sary for woman or marriage of any kind in order to your happiness. Celibacy has been honored by the best being that ever lived and his greatest apostle, Christ and Paul. What higher honor could angle life on earth have? But what you need, oh woman, is to be *ffinnra»d for ever and forever, and the banns of that marriage I am this moment here and now ready to publish. Let the angels of heaven bend from their galleries of light to witness while I pronounce you one—a loving God and a for given soul. One of the most stirring passages in history with which I am ac quainted, tells us how Cleopatra, the ex iled queen of Egypt, won the sympathies of Julius Caesar, the conqueror, untO he became the bridegroom and she the bride. Driven from her throne, she sailed away on the Medi terranean sea in a storm, and when the large ship anchored she put out with one womanly friend in a small boat until she arrived at Alexandria, where was Caesar, the great general. Knowing that she would not be permitted to land or pass the guards on the way to Caesar's palace, she laid upon the bottom of the boat some shawls and scarfs and ricldy dyed upholstery, and then lay down upon them, and her friend wrapped her in them and she was admitted ashore in this wrapping of goods, which was an nounced as a present for Csesar. This bundle was permitted to pass the guards of the gates of the palace, and was put down at the feet of the Roman general. When the bundle was unrolled there rose before Caesar one whose cour age and beauty and brilliancy are the as tonishment of the ages. This exiled queen of Egypt told the story of her sor rows, and he promised her that she should get back her throne in Egypt and take the throne of wifely dominion in his own heart. Afterward they made a triumphal tour in a barge that the pictures of many art galleries have called "Cleopatra's Barge," and that barge was covered with silken awning, and its deck was soft with luxuriant carpets, and the oars were silver tipped, and the prow was gold mounted, and the air was redo lent with the spicery of tropical gardens and resonant with the music that made the night glad as the day. You may rejoice, oh woman, that you are not a Cleopatra, and that the one to whom you may be affianced had none of the sins of Caesar, the conqueror. But it suggests to me how you, a soul exiled from happiness and peace, may find your way to the feet of the conqueror of earth and sky. Though it may be a dark night of spiritual agitation in which you put out into the harbor of peace you may sail, and when all the wrappings of fear and doubt and sin shall be removed you will be found at the feet of him who will put you on a throne, to be acknowledged as liis in the day when all the silver trumpets of the sky shall proclaim: "Be hold the bridegroom cometh," and in barge of light you sail with him the river whose source is the foot of the throne and whose mouth is at the sea of glass mingled with fire. SOUND BUSINESS MAXIMS. Action is really the life of business. Use every means to hold on to your home trade. Always keep your designs and business from the knowledge of others. Great bargains can only be secured in any market by being on the spot. It is easy to sell goods if they are well suited to your trade and bought right. Avoid litigation as much as possible, for lawyers and costs eat up the principal. Have the courage to discharge a debt while you have the money in your pocket. The man who borrows money and then borrows trouble is in sheol sure enough. Prefer small profits and certain re turns to large profits and uncertain sen timents. Difficulties, like thieves, often disap pear at a glance therefore always face a difficulty. Punctuality in money matters leads to prosperity and confidence and the basis of credit. In buying, study carefully the wants of your trade and buy with that end al ways in view. The man who minds his own business and constantly attends to it has all his time employed. Come to this market as often as pos sible, so as to secure special bargains as they are offered. Adhere strictly to your business. There maybe difficulties to overcome, but you will surmount them. Thousands of merchants fail not from the shrinkage of values, but from credit ing unwisely and too much. Be polite, prompt, decisive, civil and obliging to all your customers, and see that your clerks do likewise. Have the courage to accept small profits and be content large ones involve more risk and less certainty of continu ing. There are two sorts of people that gain little by trade, such as buy what they do not want and such as sell only in neces sity. Success secures the approbation of the world, for, as the wise man says, "Men will praise thee when thou doest well for thyself." Study the history of current events make careful comparisons of the fluctua tions in price, in demand and in supply, in order to guide your own operations by the lessons these facts impart. Misrepresentation of anything never pays, and when you tell your customers that your goods are superior to those of your competitors, when you know the same to be false, you are simply putting in the wedge that will ultimately drive your trade away. Remember that the golden rule of com mercial life is probity. Act, therefore, honestly, uprightly and conscientiously in all matters of trade. Never misrepre sent, falsify or detoeive have one rule of moral life and never swerve from it whatever may be the acta or opinjkau £l»r *00.-1)7 Ooo& G.
