THE SERAPH'S WINGS.
DR. TALMAGE IN THE MANJFACTUR
ING TOWNS OF MIDDLE ENGLAND.
'he Seraph Covered BtL Faice 'Whenle
Approached the Throne oi God--This
tetup to Ite an Age of Irreverence
Fools Make a Mock of Sin.
LoNDON, Aug. 28--DurIng the past
week Dr. Talmage has been preaching
to erormous audiences in the great
tranuiacturling towns of the English
cuidland counties. The sermon selected
< r publication this wcek is on Isaiah
vi, 2, "With twain he covered his face,
with twain te covered his feet, and with
twain he did fly."
In a hopital of leprosy good Klimg Uz
ziah had died and the whole land was
shadowed with solemnity, and theologi
tal and prophetic Isaiah was thinking
about religious things, as one is apt to
do in time of great national bereave
ment, and frgetting the presence o( his
n ile and two eons, who made up his
l-mily, he has a dream, not like the
('reams of ordinary character which
,.enerally come trom indigestion, but a
vison most instructive and un('er the
touch of the hand of the Almighty.
The place, the ancient temble; build
inLg. grand, awiul, majestic. Within
that temple a throne higher and grand
r than that eccupic d by any czar or sul
Ian cr emperor. On that throne, the
eternal Christ. In lines rurreuiiding
that throne the brighiest celestials, not
the cherubim, but higher th1an the3; the
most equisite and radiant of the heaven
ly mhabitants, theseraphim. They are
talled burners, they look like tire. Lips
of the, eyes of fire, feet of lire. In addi
tion to the features and the limbs which
uRgest a human being there are pinions
which suggest the lithest, the swiftest,
the most buoyant and most inspiring of
all intelligent creation-a bird. Each
-eraph had siz wings, cach two of the
wings for a diflerent purpose. Isaiah's
'ream quivers and flashes with these
pinions. Now folded, now spread, now
beaten in locomotion. "With twain he
covered his feet, with twain lie covered
his faCe, and with twain he did fly.
The probability is that these wings
were not all used at once. The secraph
standing there near the throne, over
whelmed at the insignificance of the
paths his feel had trodden as com pared
with the paths trodden by the feet of
God, and with the lameness of his loco
motion, amounting almost to decrepi
tude am compared with the divine veloci
ty, with leathery veil of angelic modesty
hides the feet. "With twain lie (lid
cover the feet."
Standing there overpowered by the
overmatching splendors of God's glory,
and unable longer with the eyes to look
upon them, and wishing those eyes
shaded from the inEsut'erable glory, the
pinions gather over the cottnance.
"With twain he did coNer the face. Then
us God tells this seraph to go to the
farthest outpost ol'i itensity on mes
sage of light and love and joy, ntd get
back before the first anthem, it does not
take the seraph ai great while to spread
himselt' upon the air with uninagiiied
celerity, oia stroke of the wing c(qial to
ten thausand lea;ues of' air. -With
twain he did fly."
Neither God nor seraph intii-led to
put any dishonor upon that which is one
of the masterpieces of Almightv (God
the human toot,. Phpsiologist and aunto
mist are overwhelmed1 at the wonders otf
Its organization. T1hie lridgewater
Treatise," written by Sir Clrtles llell,
on the wisdloml and goodnicsa of G.od as
illustrated in the human hantd, was a r*e
suit of the $40,000( bequeathed in the
last will and testamnent of' the Earl oft
liridlgewvater for the encouragement of
Christian literature. The world could.
alftord to forgive lisa eccenitricities,
thotugh lhe had two dogs seated at his
table, and though he put six dlogs atone
in an equipage dtrawn by four hiorses aind
attended by two footmen. WVith his
large bequest imducinLr Sir Charles lIell
to write so valuable a book on the wis
thom of God in the struveare oft he hui
man hand, the worhdeonild afford to tior
give his odd(itita.'
And j)fe world could now afford to
have another Earl of Bridgewater, how
ever idiosyncrat,ie, if lie would inidut-e
some other Sir Charles hell to write a
hook on the wisdom and goodness of
God in the construction of the human
foot. The articulation of its bonies, the
lubrication of its joints, the gzracel'ulness
of its fines, the ingenuity of' its cartli
ages, the delicacy of its veins, the rapid
ity of its muscukir contraction, the sen
sitiveness of its nerves. I soundl the
praises of the human foot. WVith that,
we halt or climb or march. ft is the
foundation of the physical .fabriic. It is
the base of a God ptoisedl column.
Give me the iistory of' your toot, and
I will give you the history of ' our life
time. Tell me up what steps it, hath
gone, down what dteclivities and im what
roads and ini what directionc, and 1 Will
know more about you thtan 1 wanit to
know. None of us could endutre the
scrutiny. Our feet, not always in pathsi
of' God. Sometimes in p)aths of worldli
ness. Our feet, a divine and elorit,us
mac.dnery for usetulness and work, so
often making miisteps, so of ten going in
the wrong direction God knowing
every step, the pat riarch saying, "Thou
settest a print on the heels of my feet."
Crimes of the hand, crimes of the
tongue, crimes of' the eye, crimes of the
t ar not worse than the crimes of the
toot. Oh, we want the wings of hum iii
ty to cover the feet! Ought we not to
go into self abnegation before the all
scrutinizing, all trying eye of' God? The
seraphs do. How much mnore we.
"With twatn he covered the feet."
Another seraphic post ure in the text,
"With twain he covered the face."
That means reverence God ward. Never
so much Irreverence abroad in the world
as today. You see it in the defaced
statuary, in the cutting out of figures
from tine paintings, In the chipping of
monuments for a memento, in the fact
that military guard must stand at the
graves of Grant and Garfld, and that
old shade trees must be cut deown for
firewood, though fifty George P~. Aior
rtses beg the wood men to spare the
tree, anti tbat calls a corpse a cadaver,
and that speaks of death as going over
to the majority, and substitutes for the
reverent terms, father and muother,
"the old man" and "the old wo.aan,"
and finds nothing impresstve in th'e
ruins of Baalbec or the columns of
Karnac, and sees nio diflereince in the
satsbath from other days except It al
lows more dissipation and reads the
.lible in what is called igher criticism,
makhtg it not the Word of God, but a
good book with some tine things in it.
Irreverence never so much abroad. s
1How many take the name of God in a
vain, how many trivial thinSa said3
about the .Almighty I Not wilIlinig to<
have God 'in the world, they roll up an1
idea of sentimentality and humanitari
anIsm and impudence and Imbecility,

The Bible gives us I wo descriptions
