BuooiuLYN, Feb. 15.--Great audien
ces again assembled at the service by
Dr. T'almuage in the 11rooklyn Academy j
of Music this lIoling aml also at The
Christian Herald service in the New
York Academy of Music inl the even
ing. The remarkable interest in the
latter continues without v-vidtence of
abatement. At the service in New
York last Sunday evenimg thero were
many emotional episodes among the
vast aulience, and to-night these were
repeated, hundreds pledging themselves
anew to Christian lives henceforth.
Dr. Talmngo took for his text at the
Brooklyn; Academy: "Faith without
works is dead." ,1 aimies ii:2o.
The Roman Catholic church has been
charged with putting too mutch stress
upon good works and not noiitgh upon
faith. I charge Protestantisn with
puttIng not enough stress upon good
works, as conettwl with salvation.
Good works will iiever save a mai, but,
if a man have not good works Ie has
no real faith and Io genii'te reliinoii.
There are those u ho depeitil ipin the
fact that thev are all right inside, while
their condic i4 wrongoutside. Their
religion, for tihe.- iniost part., is un(de iup
of talk- vi;orlouls talk, filienlt. t.alk,
