OR. TALMAGE DISCOURSES ON SUM
Admonishes tbe Pleasure Seekers
Xot to Leave Religion Behind.
Temptations Abound at "Watering
Copyright. Louis Klopsch, ISM.
Washington. Aug. 20. At this sea
son of the year, when all who can get
a vacation are taking it, this discourse
of Dr. Talmage is suggestive and ap
propriate. The text is John v, 2, 3: "A
pool, which is called iu the Hebrew
tongue Bethesda, having five porches.
In these lay a great multitude of im
potent folk, of blind, halt, withered,
waiting for the moving of the water."
Outside the city of Jerusalem there
was a sanative watering place, the
popular resort for invalids. To this
day there is a dry basin of rock which
shows that there may have been a
pool there 3G0 feet long, 130 feet wide
and 75 feet deep. This pool was sur
rounded by five piazzas, or porches, or
bathing houses, where the patients tar
ried until the time when they were to
step into the water. So far as reiu
vlgoratlon .was concerned It must have
been a Saratoga and a Long Branch on
a small scale, a Leamington and a
Brighton combined medical and thera
peutic. Tradition says that at a cer
tain season of the year there was an
officer of the government who would
go down to that water and pour in it
some healing quality, and after that
the people would come and get the
medication, but I prefer the plain
statement of Scripture that at a cer
tain season an angel came down and
stirred up or troubled the water, and
then the people came and goc the heal
ing. That angel of God that stirred up
the Judacan watering place had bis
counterpart In the angel of healing
who In our day steps Into the mineral
waters of Congress, or Sharon, or Sul
phur Springs, or into the salt sea at
Cape May and Nahant, where multi
tudes who are worn out with commer
cial and professional anxieties, as well
as those who are afflicted with rheu
matic neuralgic and splenetic dis
eases, go and are cured by the thou
sands. These blessed Bethcsdas are
scattered all up and dowu our country.
The Vacation Senson.
We are at a season or the year when
rail trains are laden with passengers
and baggage on their way to the moun
tains and the lakes and the seashore.
Multitudes of our citizens are away
for a restorative absence. The city
heats are pursuing the people with
torch and fear of sunstroke. The long,
silent halls of sumptuous hotels are all
abuzz with excited arrivals. The
antlers of Adirondack deer rattle un
der the shot of city sportsmen. The
trout make fatal snap at the hook of
adroit sportsmen, who toss their spot
ted brilliance into the game basket
The baton of the orchestral leader taps
the music stand on the hotel green,
and American life has put on festal
array, and the rumbling of the ten
pin alley, and the crack of the ivory
balls on the .green haized billiard ta
bles, and the jolting of the barroom
goblets, and the explosive uncorking of
the champagne bottles, and the whirl
and the rustle of the ballroom dance,
and the clattering hoofs of the race
course and other signs of social dis
sipation attest that the season for the
great American watering places is in
full play. Music! Flute and drum
and cornet-a-plston and slapping cym
bals wake the echoes of the mountains.
Glad am I that fagged out American
life for the most part has an oppor
tunity to rest and that nerves racked
and destroyed will find a Bethesda.
I believe In watering places. They
recuperate for active service many
who1 were worn out with trouble or
overwork. They are national restora
tives. Let not the commercial firm be
grudge the clerk, or the employer the
journeyman, or the patient the physi
cian, or the church Its pastor, a season
of Inoccupation. Luther used to sport
tvlth ills children; Edmund Burke used
to caress his favorite horse; Thomas
Chalmers, in the dark hour of the
church's disruption, played kite for
recreation so 1 was told by his own
daughter and the busy Christ said to
the busy apostles, "Come ye apart
awhile into the desert and rest your
selves." And I have observed that
they who do not know how to rest do
not know how to work. But 1 have to
declare this truth today that some of
our fashionable watering places are
the temporal and eternal destruction of
"a multitude that no man can num
ber," and amid the congratulations of
tills season and the prospect of the de
parture of many of you for the country
I must utter a warning, plain, earnest
Take IUetj- Alonff.
The first temptation that is apt to
hover in this direction Is to leave your
piety at home. You will send the dog

temptation will be to leave your re

down and the door bolted, and then
you will come back In the autumn to

find that it is starved and suffocated,
lying stretched on the rug stark dead.
There Is uo surplus of piety at the wa
tering places. I never knew auy one
to grow very rapidly In grace at the
Catskill Mountain House, or Sharon
Springs, or the Falls of Montmorency.
It Is generally the case that the Sab
'ath is more of a carousal than any
f'ther day. and there are Sunday walks
nnd Sunday rides and Sunday excur
blons. Elders and deacons and minis
ters of religion who are entirely con
sistent at home, sometimes when the
Sabbath dawns on them at Niagara
Falls or the White mountains, take a
day to themselves. If they go to the
church,' it is apt to be a sacred parade,
and the discourse. Instead of being a
plain talk ahont the soul. Is apt to be
whais called a crack sermon that Is,
some discourse picked out of the ef
fusions of the year as the one most
adapted to excite admiration, and in
those churches, from the way the
ladies hold r.heir fans, you know that
they are cot so much impressed with
the heat as with the picturesnueness
of half disclosed features. Four puny
souls stand in the organ loft anil stjuall
a tune that nobody knows, and wor
shipers with. $2,000 worth of diamouds
on the right hand drop a cent into the
poor box, and then the benediction Is
pronounced, and the faree Is ended.
The toughest thing I ever tried to do
was to be good at a watering place.
The air is bewitched with the "world, ' how many come from the watering
the flesh and the devil." There are places their health absolutely destroy

though you be surrounded by guffaw
and saturnalia. Keep holy the Sab-'
bath, though they deride you as a
bigoted Puritan. Stand off from gam

which propose to imitate on this side
the water the iniquities of Baden
Baden. Let your moral and your im
mortal health keep pace with your
physical recuperation and remember
that all the sulphur and chalybeate
springs cannot do you so much good as
the healing, perennial flood that breaks
forth from the "Rock of Ages." This
may he your hist summer. If so, make
it a fit vestibule of heaven.
Another temptation hovering around
nearly all our watering places is the
horse racing business. We all admire
the horse, but we do not think that its
beauty or speed ought to he cultured
at the expense of human degradation.
The horse race Is not of such Impor
tance as the human race. The Bible
Intimates that a man Is better thau a
sheep, and I suppose he is better than
a horse, though, like Job's stnllion, his
neck be clothed with thunder. Horse
races In olden times were under the
ban of Christian people, and in our
day the same Institution has come up
under fictitious names. And it is call
ed a "summer meeUng," almost sug
gestive of positive religious exercises.
And It is called an "agricultural fair,"
suggestive of everything that is im
proving In the art of farming. But
under these deceptive titles are the
same cheating, and the same betting,
and the same drunkenness, and the
same vagabondage, and the same
abomination that were to he found
under the old horse racing system.
I never knew a man yet who could
give himself to the pleasures of the
turf for a long reach of time and not
be battered in morals. They hook up
their spanking team and put on their
sporting cap and light their cigar and
take the reins and dash down on the
road to perdition! The great day at
Saratoga and Brighton Eeach and
Cape May and nearly all the other wa
tering places is the day of the races.
The hotels are thronged, every kind of
equipage Is taken up at an almost fab
ulous price, and there are many re
spectable people mingling with jock
eys and gamblers and libertines and
foul mouthed men and flashy women.
The bartender stirs up the brandy
smash. The bets run high. The
greenhorns, supposing all Is fair, put
in their money soon enough to lose it.
Three weeks before the race takes
place the struggle is decided, and the
men in the secret know on which steed
to bet their money. The men on the
horses riding around long ago arrang
ed who shall win. Leaning from the
staud or from the carriage are men and
women so absorbed iu the struggle of
hone and muscle and mettle that they
make a grand harvest for the pick
pockets, who carry off the pocketbooks
and the portemounaies. Men looking

ago the English government
got through looking to the turf for the
dragoon and the light cavalry horse.
They found out that the turf depre
ciates the stock, and it is worse yet
for men. Thomas Hughes, the mem
ber of parliament and the author
known all the world over, hearing that
a new turf enterprise was being start
ed iu this country, wrote a letter In
which he said. "Heaven help you, then,
for of all the cankers of our old civ
ilization there Is nothing in this coun
try approaching in unblushing mean
ness, in rascality holding its head high,
to this belauded institution of the
British turf." Another famous sports
man writes, "How many fine domains
have been shared among these hosts
of rapacious sharks during the last
200 years, and, unless the system be
altered, how many more are doomed
to fall into the same gulf?" With the
bullfights of Spain and the hear bait
ings of the pit may the Lord God an
nihilate the infamous and accursed
horse racing of England and America!
I go further and speak of another
temptation that hovers over the water
ing place, and that is the temptation
to sacrifice physical strength. The
modern Bethesda, just like this Bethes
da of the text, was intended to re
cuperate the physical health, and yet
ice creams and lemons and lobster
salads and cocoanuts until the gastric
Juices lift up all their voices of lamen-
tation and protest. Delicate women
and brainless young men dancing
themselves into vertigo and catalepsy.
Thousands of men and women coming
back from onr watering places in the
autumn with the foundations laid for
ailments that will last them all their
' life long. You know as well as I do
that this is the -simple truth. In the
summer yon say to your good health:
"Goodhy. 1 am golug to have a gay
time now for a little while. I will be
very glad to see you again In the au
tumn." Then iu the autumn, when
you are hard at work in your office or
store or shop or counting room. Good
Health will come in and say: "Goodhy.
I am going." You say, "Where are you
going?" "Oh," says Good Health, "I
am going to take a vacation!" It Is a
poor rule that will not work both
ways, and your good health will leave
you choleric and splenetic and ex
hausted. You coquetted with your
good health in the summer time, and
your good health is coquetting with
you Iu the winter time. A fragment
of Paul's charge to the jailer would
bo an appropriate inscription for the
hotel register In every watering place..
"Do thyself uo harm."
Another temptation hovering around
the watering place Is the formation of
hasty and lifelong alliances. The wa
tering places are responsible for more
of the domestic infelicities of this
country than nearly all other things.
combined. Society is so artificial there
that no sure judgment of character
can be formed. They who form com
panionships amid such circumstances
go into a lottery where there are 20
blanks to oue prize. In the severe tug
of life you want more than glitter and
splash. Life is not a ballroom, where
the music decides the step and bow
and prance and graceful swing of long
train can make up for strong common
sense. You might as well go among
the gayly painted yachts of a summer
regatta to find war vessels as to go
among the light spray of the summer
watering place to find character that
can staud the test of the great strug
gle of human life. Iu the battle of
life you want a stronger weapon than
a lace fan or a croquet mallet. The
load of life is so heavy that in order
to draw it you want a team stronger
than that made up of a masculine
grasshopper and a feminine butterfly.
If there is any man iu the communi
ty who excites my contempt and who
ought to excite the contempt of every
man and woman it is the soft handed,
soft headed dude, who, perfumed until
the air is actually sick, spends his
summer in striking killing attitudes
and waving sentimental adleux and
talking infinitesimal nothings nnd find
ing his heaven in the set of a lavender
kid glove. Boots as tight as an inquisi
tion. Two hours of consummate skill
exhibited In the tie of a flashing cra
vat. His conversation made up of
"Ahs!" and "Ohs!" and "He lies!"
There is only one counterpart to such

a man as that, and that Is tbe frothy
young woman at the watering place;
her conversation made up of French
moonshine; what she has In her head
only equaled by what she has on her
back; useless ever since she was born
and to be useless until she is dead un
less she becomes an Intelligent Chris
tian. We may admire music and fair
faces and graceful step, but amid the
heartlessness and the inflation and the
fantastic influences of our modern wa
tering places beware how you make
Another temptation that hovers over
the watering place is that of baneful
literature. Almost every one starting
off for the summer takes some reading
matter. It is a book out of the libra
ry or off the bookstand or bought of
the boy hawking books through the
cars. I really believe there Is more
pestiferous trash read among the In
telligent classes lu July and August
than in all the other ten months of
the year. Men and women who at
home would not be satisfied with a
book that was not really sensible I
Cud sitting on hotel piazza or under
the trees reading books the index of
which would make them blush If they
knew that you knew what the book
was. "Oh," they say, "you must have
intellectual recreation!" Yes. There
is no need that you take along to a
watering place 'Hamilton's Metaphys
ics" or some ponderous discourse on
the eternal decrees or "Faraday's
Philosophy." There are many easy
books that are good. You might 'as
well say, "I propose now to give a lit
tle rest -to my digestive organs, and in
stead of eating heavy meat and vege
tables I will for a little while take
lighter food, a little strychnine and a
few grains of ratsbane." Literary
poison in August is as bad as literary
poison in December. Mark that. Do
not let the frogs of a corrupt printing
press Jump into your Saratoga trunk
or White .mountain valise. Are there
not good books that are easy to road
books of entertaining travel, books of
congenial history, books of pure fun,
books of poetry, ringing with merry
canto; books of fine engravings, books
that will rest the mind as well as puri
fy the heart ajd elevate the whole life?
There will not be an hour between this
and your, death when you can afford
to read a book lacking in moral prin
ciple. Another temptation hovering all
around our watering places is intoxi
cating beverages. I am told that it is
becoming more" and more fashionable
for women to drink. I care not how
well a woman may dress, if she has
taken enough of wine to flush her
cheek and put a glassiuess on her eye
she is drunk. She may be handed into
a $2,500 carriage and have diamouds
enough to astound the Tiffanys she is
drank. She may be a graduate of the
best young ladies' seminary and the
daughter of some man In danger of
being nominated for the presidency
she is drum;. You may have a larger
vocabulary than I have, and you may
say in regr.rd to her that she is "con
vivial," or she is "merry," or she is
"festive," or she is "exhilarated," but
you cannot with all your garlands of
verbiage cover up the plain fact that
it Is an old fashioned case of drunk.
DangrerM of Tlitpllnir.
Xow, the watering places are. full of
temptations to men and women to tip
ple. At the close of the tenpln or bil
liard game they tipple. At the close of
the cotillon they tipple. Seated on the
piazza cooling themselves off they tip
ple. The tinged glasses come around
with bright straws and they tipple.
First they take "light wines," as they
call them, but "light wines" are heavy
enough to debase the appetite. There
is not a very long road between cham
pagne nt 53 a bottle and whisky at 10
cents a glass. Satan has three or four
grades down which he takes men to
destruction. One mau he takes up and
through one spree pitches him into
eternal darkness. This Is a rare case.
Very seldom, indeed, can you find a
man who will be such a fool as that.
Satan will take another man to a
grade, to a descent at an angle about
like the Pennsylvania coal shoot or the
Mount Washington rail track, and
fhove him off. But that Is very rare.
When a man goes down to destruction,
Satan brings him to a plane. It is al
most a level. The depression is so
light that you can hardly see It. The
man does not actually know that he Is

Bible without finding out some such
watering place. Fountains open for
sin and uncleanness. Wells of salva
tion. Streams from Lebanon. A flood
struck out of the rock by Moses.
Fountains in the wilderness discover
ed by Hagar. Water to drink and wa
ter to bathe in. The river of God,
which Is full of water. Water of
which If .a, man drink he shall never
thirst. Wells of water in the valley
of Baca. Living fountains of water.
A pure river of water as clear as crys
tal from under the throne of God.
These are watering places accessible
to all of us. We do not have a labori

the throwing away of our transgres
sions. Xo expensive hotel bills to pay.
It Is "without money and without
price." Xo long and dusty travel be

In California in five minutes I walk
ed around and saw ten fountains all
bubbling up, and they were all dif
ferent, and in five minutes I can go
through this Bible parterre and find
you 50 bright, sparkling fountains bub
bling up Into eternal life healing and
therapeutic. A chemist will go to one
of these summer watering places and
take the water, and analyze It. and tell
you It contains so much of Iron, and
so much of soda, and so much of lime,
and so much of magnesia. I come to
this gospel well, this living fountain,
and analyze the water, and I find that
Its ingredients are peace, pardon, for
giveness, hope, comfort, life, heaven.
"Uo, every one that thirsteth, come ye"
to this watering place! Crowd around
this Bethesda. Oh, you sick, you lame,
you troubled, you dying, crowd around
this Bethesda! Step "in it, oh, step in

stirs the water. Why do you not step
In It? Some of you are too weak to
take a step In that direction. Then we
take you up In the arms of prayer and
plunge you clear under the wave, hop

JUST A CURTAIN FIRE.
It Was In GlrlM llimrilliiir School
mid Did CouiiiliciitPi! llaiuiiKe.
A fire in a skyscraper may be thrill
ing, but for dramatic episodes and un
expected complications a liro in a girls'
boarding school surpasses it. The board
ing school lire is usually what is known
among insurance men as a curtain fire,
but a curtain fire in a girls' school is
more exciting and caus-es more casual
ties than an ordinary blaze anywhere
One evening last week two girls, who
occupy a microscopic hall bedroom in a
swell up town school, took the globes
,oE the gas fixtures for hair curling pur
poses and left them off, because it was
easier to do that than to put them on
again. Then the girls raised to . window
a trifle in order to cool the room and
dutifully sat down to write home let
ters. The inevitable happened, and
when girl number one poised her pen
in the air and glanced around tho room
in search of inspiration she saw the
curtains in a blaze. She screamed. Girl
number two looked around and echoed
the scream. Then, with promptitude
and discretion, both girls fainted. The
screams had attracted the attention of
the other girls, who rushed to the scene
and then did various and sundry stunts,
according to their several dispositions.
One fainted, several wept, a few ran
out of the house, and tho rest shonted
for the one man on the premises.
When he arrived, things looked rather
hopeless. Curtains and woodwork were
blazing finely. The floor was littered
with prostrate forms, and when three
gills have fainted on the floor of a hall
bedroom there isn't much space in the
room for promenading. Tho man picked
his way across the prostrate forms and
ordered all the girls who were not in a
dead faint to leave the room, but they
didn't go until he lost bis. temper and
spoke with n force which isn't common
in boarding school circles. Then they
fled; bnt, unluckily, there was an ene
my in the rear. A vigorous and practi
cal woman from Texas had been inspir
ed to go after some water. Returning
in mad haste with a large pitcherfnl
of water borne triumphantly aloft, she
collided with the reheating forces at
tho door. The pitcher struck the leader
of the retreat squarely in the face and
knocked ont two of her front teeth,
whereupon the injured girl made the
fainting trio a quartet and the water
carrier dropped her pitcher and went
into violent hysterics.
Hysteria, as boarding school teachers
know to their sorrow, is contagions,
and the one case touched off tho crowd.
By tho time teachers arrived, upon the
scene the fire was out, but the snrvivors
were in a bad way. It was necessary to
put nine-tenths of the school to bed and
order wholesale doses of bromide. Even
now the girls insist that they haven't
recovered from the shock .sufficiently to
do hard studying, and tho victims of
the water pitcher are both under the
care of trained nurses. As for the man.
