Washington, Oct. J2. in this dis
course Dr. Taltuage employs a very
bold figure of the Bible lo bring out
the helpfulness of religion for all those
In any kind of struggle. The text is
Isaiah xxv. 11. "He shall spread forth
bis hands in the midst of them, as he
that swimmeth spreadetb forth bis
In the summer season multitudes of
people wade Into the ponds and lakes'
and rivers aud seas to dive or float or
swim. In a world the most of which is
water all men and women should learn
to swim. Some of you have learned
the side stroke Introduced by George
Pewters in ISfiO. each stroke of that
kind carrying the swimmer a distance
of six feet, and some of you may use
the overhand stroke Invented by Gar
dener, the expert who by it won the
500 yard championship in Manchester
in 1SG2, the swimmer by that stroke car
rying his arm in the air for a more
lengthened reach, and some of you
may tread the water as though you
had been made to walk the sea, but
most of yoa usually take what Is call
ed the breast stroke, placing the hands
with the backs upward, about five
Inches under the water, the inside ot
the wrists touching the breast, then
pushing the arms forward coincident
with the stroke of the feet struck out
to the greatest width possible, and you
thus unconsciously Illustrate the mean
ing of my text, "He shall spread forth
bis hands in the midst of thein, as lie
that swimmeth spreadetb forth bis
hands to swim."
The fisherman seeks out unfrequent
ed nooks. You stand all day on the
bauk of a river In the broiling sun and
fling out your line and catch nothing,
while an expert angler breaks through
the jungle and goes by the shadow of
the solitary rock and. in a place where
no fisherman has been for ten years,
throws out his line and comes home at
night, his face shining and his basket
full. I do not know why we ministers
of the gospel need always be fishing in
the same stream and preaching from
the same texts that other people preach
from. I cannot understand the policy
of the minister who in Blackfriars,
London, England, every week for :J0
years preached from the Epistle to the
Hebrews. It Is an exhilaration to me
when I come across a theme which I
feel no one else has treated, and my
text Is one of that kind. There are
paths in God's word that are well beat
en by Christian feet. When men want
to quote Scripture, they quote the old
passages that every one has" heard.
When they want a chapter read, they
read a chapter that all the other people
have been reading, so that the church
today is ignorant of three-fourths of
Push Down Iniquity.
You go Into the Louvre at Paris. You
confine yourself to one corridor of that
opulent .gallery of paintings. As you
come out your friend says to you,
"Did you see that Rembrandt?" "No."
"Did you see that Rubens?' "N'o."
"Did you sec that Titian V "No." "Did
you see that Raphael?" "No." "Well,"
says your friend, "then you did not see
the Louvre." Now, my friends, I think
we are too much apt to confine our
selves to one of the great corridors of
Scripture truth, and so much so that
there Is not one person out of a million
who has ever noticed the all suggestive
and powerful picture in the words of
This text represents God as a strong
swimmer, striking out to push down
Iniquity and save the souls of men.
"He shall spread forth his hands in the
midst of them, as he that swimmeth
spreadetb forth his hands to swim."
The figure Is bold and many sided.
Most of you know how to swim. Some
of you learned it in the city school,
where this art Is taught; some of you
iu boyhood, in the river uear your fa
ther's house; some of you, since you
came to manhood or womanhood, while
summering on the beach of the sea. It
is a good thing to know how to swim,
not only for yourself, but because you
will after awhile perhaps have to help
I do not know anything more stirring
or sublime than to see some man like
Norman McKenzle leaping from the
ship Madras Into the sea to save
Charles Turner, who had dropped from
the royal yard while trying to loosen
the bail, bringing him back to the deck
amid the huzzas of the passengers and
crew. If a man has not enthusiasm
enough to cheer In such circumstance,
be deserves himself to drop into the
sea and have no one help him. The
Royal Humane Society of England was
established in 1774, its object to ap
plaud aud reward those who should
pluck up life from the deep. Any one
who has performed such a deed of dar
lug has all the particulars of that
bravery recorded in a public record
cud on bis breast a medal done in blue
and gold and bronze, anchor and mono
gram and Inscription, telling to future
generations the bravery of the man or
woman who saved some one from
drowning. But If it is such a worthy
thing to save a body from the deep I
ask yon if it Is not a worthier thing to
save an immortal soul. And you shall
see this hour the Son of God step forth
for this achievement. "He shall spread
forth his hands in the midst of them,
as he that swimmeth spreadetb forth
his hands' to swim."
Most Bnleful Word.
In order to understand the full force
of this figure, you need to realize that
our race Is In a sinking condition. You
sometimes hear people talking of what
they consider the most beautiful words'
In our laiguage. One man says It Is
"home," aaother man says It Is the
word "mother," another says It is the
word "Jesus," but I tell you the bitter
est word In all our language, the word
most angry and baleful, the word sat
urated with the most trouble, the word
that accounts for all the loathsomeness
and the pang and the outrage and the
harrowing, aud that word Is "sin."
You spell It with three letters, and yet
those three letters describe the circum

Lady .lane Grey to death his conscience
troubled him so much for the deed that

High Water Mark.
Then what do we wautV A swim
mer a strong swimmer, a swift
swimmer! And, blessed be God, in my
text we have him announced. "He shall
spread forth his hands in the midst of
them, as he that swiminetb stretcheth
forth his hands to swim." You have
noticed that when a swimmer goes to
rescue any one lie puts off-his heavy ap
parel. He must not have any such im
pediment about him if he is going to do
tills great deed. And when Christ step
ped forth to save us he shook out the
sandals of heaven, and his feet were
free, and then he stepped down into
the wave of our transgressions, and it
came up over his wounded feet, aud it
came above the spear stab in his side
aye, it dashed to the lacerated tem
ple, the higli water mark of anguin.
Then, rising above the flood, "He
stretched forth his hands In the midst
of them, as he that swimmeth spread
eth foith his hands to swim."
If you have ever watched a swim
mer, you notice that his whole body is
brought into play. The arms are flex
ed, the hands drive the water back,
the knees are active, the head Is
thrown back to escape strangulation,
the whole body is in propulsion. And
when Christ sprang Into the deep to
save us he threw his entire nature into
it all his godhead, his omniscience, his
goodness, his love, his omnipotence,
head, heart, eyes, hands, feet. We
were far out on the sea aud so deep
down iu the waves and so far out from,
the shore that nothing short of an en
tiro God could save us. Christ leaped
out for our rescue, saying. "Lo, I come
to do thy will!" and all the surges of
human and satnnic hate beat against
him. and those who watched him from
the gates of heaven feared he would
go down under the waves aud iustead
of saving others would himself perish;
but, putting his breast to the foam.

Christ sprang out into the sea to de
liver us, he had no life buoy. His
Father did not help him. Alone in the
wine press, alone in the pang, alone iu
the darknc- alone on the mountain,
alone in the sea! Oh, if he saves us he
shall have all the credit, for "there
1 was none to help," no oar. no wing, no
ladder! When Nathaniel Lyon fell in
the battle charge in front of his troops,
he had a wtole army to cheer bim.

alone! "Of the people there was none
to help." "All forsook him and fled."
Oh, it was not a flotilla that sailed
down and saved us. It was not a clus
ter of gondolas that came over the
wave. It was one person, independent
and alone, "spreading out his bands
among us as a swimmer spreadeth
forth his hands to swim!"

There-was a man in the navy at sea
who had been severely whipped for
bad behavior, and he was maddened
by It and leaped into the sea. and no
sooner had he leaped Into the sea
than, quick as lightning, an albatross
swooped upon him. The drowning
man, brought to bis senses, seized hold
of the albatross aud held on. The flut
tering of the bird kept him on the
wave until relief could come. Would
now that the dove of God's convict
ing, converting and saving spirit might
flash from the throne upon your soul
and that you, taking hold of Its potent
wing, might live and live forever.
The world has had strong swimmers
besides the one of the text, perhaps the
greatest among them Matthew Webb
of the British mercantile marine serv
ice. He leaped from the deck of the
Russia, the Cituartl steamer, to save
the life of a sailor who had fallen over
board. No wonder the passengers sub
scribed for him a large reward and the
Royal Humane Society of London dec
orated him with honors. A mighty
swimmer was he. by the strength of his
own arm and foot pushing through the
waters from Blackwall pier to Graves
end pier. 18 miles, aud from Dover to
Calais, 39 miles, where he crossed, yet
he was drowned at last iu our Ni
agara's whirlpool. But the strong
swimmer of my text put out alone to
swim a wrathier sea and for vaster
distance, even from world to world, to
save us who were swamped in guilt
and woe, and brought us to the shore
of safety, although he at last went
down Into the whirlpool of human and
satanic rage. "He descended Into hell!"
Not a New Invention.
New modes have been invented for
rescuing a drowning body, but there
has been no new invention for rescuing
.1 drowning soul. In 17S5 Lionel Lukin,
a London coach builder, fitted up a
Norway yawl as a lifeboat and called
it the Insubmerglble, and that has
been improved upon until from all the
coasts of the round world perfect life
boats are ready to put out for the relief
of marine disasters. In IG years the
French Society For Saving Life From
Shipwreck, by their lifeboats and gun
apparatus saved 2.129 lives. The Ger
man Association For the Rescue of
Life From Shipwreck, the Royal Na
tional Lifeboat institution and our
United Stales life saving service
have done a work beyond the power
of statistics to commemorate. What
rocket lines and sling life buoys and
tally boards aud mortars and ham
mocks and cork mattresses aud life
saving stations filled with machinery
for saving the bodies of the drowning!
But let me here aud now make It plain
that there has been no uew way In
vented for the moral and eternal res
cue of a struggling soul. Five hundred
attempts at such contrivance have been
made, but all of them dead failures.
Hear it! "There is none other name
uudcr heaven given among men where
by we must be saved" than the name
of Jesus. The mighty swimmer of my
text conies down off the beach of heav
en and through the breakers, comes
buffeted and bruised, and. reddening
the waves from bis owu lacerations, he
hprips: "Lay hold of my arm! Put your
'-jMiead on my shoulder! Hear the beating
of my loving heart! Be ye saved, for I
-am God. and there is no other!"
I want to persuade you to lay hold
of this stroug swimmer. "No." you
say; "it is always disastrous for a
drowning man to lay hold of a swim
mer." There Is not a river or lake but
has a calamity resultant from the fact
that when a strong swimmer went out
to save a sinking man the drowning
man clutched him. threw his arms
around him. pinioned his arms aud
they both went down together. When
you are saving a man in the water,
you do not want to eonie up by his
face. You want to come up by his
back. Yon. do not want liiui to hold
you while you take hold of liini. B.it.

strong a swimmer he comes not to our
back, but to our face, and he :isks us
to throw around him the arms of our
love and then promisi to take ns to
the beach, and he will do it. Do not
trust that plank of pood works. Do not
trust that shivered pp;ir of your own
righteousness. Christ only can give
you safe transportatlon.Turn your
face upon him, as tl-.e dying martyr
did In olden times when he cried out:
"None but Christ! None but Christ!"
Jesus has taken millions to the land,
and he is willing to take you there.
Oh, what hardness to thrust him back
when he has been swimming all the
way from the throne of God. where
you are now. and is ready to swim all
the way back again, taking your re
I have sometimes thought what a
spectacle the ocean bed will present
when in the last day the water is all
drawn off. It will be a line of wrecks
from beach to beach. There Is where
the harpooners went down. There is
where the line of battle ships went
down. There Is where the merchant
men went down. There is where the
steamers went down, a long line of
wrecks from beach to beach. What a
spectacle iu the last day, when the
water Is drawn off! Bqt, oh, how
much more solemn If we had an eye
to see the spiritual wrecks aud the
plaees where they foundered! You
would find thousands along our roads
and streets. Christ came down in their
awful catastrophe, putting out for their
souls, "spreading forth his hands as a
swimmer spreadeth forth -his hands
to swim." but they thrust him iu the
sore heart, and they smote his fair
cheek, and the storm and darkness
swallowed them up. I ask you to lay
hold of tills Christ and lay hold of him
now. You will sink without him.
From horizon to horizon not one sail
in sight, only one strong swimmer,
with head flung back and arms -outspread.
I hear many saying: "Well, I would
like to be a Christian. I am going to
work to become a Christian." My
brother, you begin wrong. When a
man Is drowning and a strong swim
mer comes out to help him, he says to
him: "Now, be quiet. Put your nrni on
my arm or on my shoulder, but don't
struggle, don't try to help yourself, and
I'll take you ashore. The more you
struggle and the more you try to help
yourself the more you impede me.
Now, be quiet, and I'll take you
ashore." When Christ, the Btrong
swimmer, comes out fo ears a soul.

the sinner says: "That's right. I am
glad to see Christ, aud I am going to
help him in the work of my redemp
tion. I am going to pray more, and
that will help him. nud I am going to
weep extravagantly over my sins, and
that will help him." No; it will uot.
Stop your doing. Christ will do all or
none. -You cannot lift an ounce, you
cannot move an inch, iu this matter of
I.n- Ilolil of ChrUt.
This N the difficulty which keeps
thousands of souls out of the kingdom
of heaven. It is because they cannot
consent to let Jesus Christ begin and
complete the work of their redemp
tion. "Why," you say. 'then is there
nothing for me to do?" On!. one
thing have you to do, and i' - to
lay hold of Christ and let him achieve
your salvation nnd achieve it all. I
do not know whether I make the mat
ter plain or uot. I simply want to
show you that a mau cannot save him
self, but that the Almighty Son of
God can do it aud will do it if you ask
him. Oh, lliug your two arms, the
arm of your trust aud the arm of
your love, around this omnipotent
swimmer of the cross!
"Have you ever stood by and seen
borne one under process of resuscitation
aftr long submergence? The strong
swimmer has put him on the beach aft
er a struggle in the waters. To excite
breathing in the almost lifeless body
what manipulation, what friction of
the cold limbs, what artificial move
ment of the lungs, what breath of the
rescuer blown iato the mouth of the
rescued! And when breathing begins,
and after awhile the slight respiration
becomes the deep sigh, and the eyes
open, aud the blue lips take ou a smile,
what rejoicing, what clapping of
hands ail up and down the beach, what
congratulation for the strong swimmer
and for all who helped iu the restora
tion, what shoutiug of "He lives, he
lives!" Like thix is the gladness when
a soul that has been submerged in sin
and sorrow is "comiug to." What de
sire ou the part of all to help, and,
when under the breath of God and un
der the manipulation by the wonnded
bands of Christ, the life eterual of the
soul begins to show Itself, all through
the ranks of spectators, terrestrial aud
celestial, goes the cry: "He lives! Re
joice, for the dead Is alive again!" May
the living Christ this moment put out
for your rescue, "spreading tils hands
in the midst of you, as a swimmer
spreadetb his hands to swim!"

the night I'lace.
Wise Is the man who, if fate decrees
that he shall dwell in a flat, takes
pains to master all details by which h'.s
own domicile may be distinguished
from that of his uext door neighbor.
For if he fails to do so strauge things
may transpire, as this story will dem
onstrate. it happened only a few nights ago
and in Woodlawn. which is a veritable
wilderness of fiat buildings of all sizes
and designs. One of the old fashioned
structures Is particularly confusing. It
has an infinity of length, in which
there are six entrances, all much alike,
each giving ingrcs and egress to the
tenants of eight flats.
Two or three weeks ago a family
took up its abode iu the building, oc
cupying the ground floor flat on the east
side of the fourth entrance from the
east end of the building. That sounds
So far all well aud good. But on the
night iu question the family, consisting
of-a rather young father, a good look
ing young mother and a little girl went
to the theater. leaving the flat In
charge of the brother of the pater
familias, a young man of some 21 years
and gifted with an appetite for slum
ber. It was late when the family return
ednearly 1 o'clock, in fact. How it
happened no one knows, but they all
missed the count and turned in at the
fifth entrance from the east end of the
building instead of the fourth. A
ring at the doorbell at first brought
no reply. They were vexed, for they
had no latchkey with them. A few
more rings, however, brought an an
swer. The door was opened an Inch and a
sleepy male voice said, "Who Is It?"
"Why, It's us, of course," was the an
swer. "What did you think it was.
And with this remark the man push
ed on through the door, followed at
once by his wife aud little girl, into
the dimly lighted parlor. In the middle
of the room stood a dazed looking indi
vidual, with sleep heavy lids and
frowzled hair, attired only iu a rather
brief night garment.
Paying no more attention, to her sup
posed brother-in-law, the woman took
off her hat and began making herself
otherwise quite at home.
At last the ligure in the middle of th
room spoke. This is what he remarked:
"If you folks want anything here, or
if I can do anything for you, please tell
me and I'll try aud accommodate you."
As sure, as fate, that voice was a
sn-ange voice. "
"Why, isn't this No. 511?" the man
"No; It's No. 315. If you please."
They stood not on the order of their
going, but went at once. Not. however,
before the woman had picked up her
hat and sundry other articles of wear
ing apparel and had grabbed a fright
ened little girl by the arm.
The next eveningaa extremely em
barrassed young man made a brief call
to apologize for a blunder he attributed
to a lack of acquaintance with the ap
pearance of the building at night. The
apology was accepted in good part.
It is said that people in the same flat
building never got acquainted with
each other. The young man who was
mistaken for a brother and a brother-in-law
uow is wondering whether that
call was the end or only the beginning
of social relations between the two
families. As he is the older tenant, he
says the problem is one his wife must
decide. Chicago Tribune.
