WELLINGTON ENTERPRISE, 6 TTJLPIT UTTERANCES. Sermon by Rev. Dr. Talmago on the Influenoa of Cities. fc Slnt of the Metropolis Are More Ap. parent. But on the Whole the pfosr mnd the Yardstick Must Not Reproach Keeh Other. Rev. Dr. T. DeWltt Toliuags preached Sunday In the Brooklyn Tabornacle to an ; aUdlHiiro of over tlx thousand people. The following is the toxt of hli discourse: And he- bulldcd aolty, and callml the nam of the city alter the uiunu of bin ton Enoch. Utnni li'.: 11. Cain was the founder of the first city, and I Bupose It took after him In morals. It tak'.s a city a long while to etcape from the character of a founder; Where the fouudure of a city are criminal exiles, the filth, IHe vice, the prisons are the shadows of thojj foundurs. It will tuke centurio ' for New York to get ovor the good influ ence of tho pious founders of thot city the fountldrs whose prayers went up in streets wher now banks discount, and brokers sbav.:. and companies declare dividends, and s.nugglers swear Custom-House lies; and above the roar of the wheels and the rack of the- auctioneer's mallet ascends the- as'iption: "We worship thee, O thou timidity dollar!" The old church' that used to stand on Wall street is this day throwing Its blessings on tho scene of traf fic; and on the ships folding their white -i'iugs In the harbor. In other days people gathered in the cities for defense. But in these times, when through civilization and Christianity it is safe to live any where, people (rather In the city for purposes of rapid gain. The city is no worse than the country. The vices of the metropolis ore more evi dent than tho vices of the rural districts because there are more people to be bad if they wish to be. The merchant is as good t the farmer. There is no more cheating in town than out of town no worse cheat ing; it is only on a larger scale. The coun tryman sometimes prevaricates about the age of the horse that he sells, about the ise of the bushel with which he measures the grain, about the peaches at the bottom of the basket as being as large as those at the top, about the quarter of beef as being tender when it is tough, and to as bad an extent as the citizen the merchant pervarl cates about calicoes or silks or hardware. And as to villages I think that in some re spects they are worse than the cities be cause they copy the vices of the cities in the meanest shape; and as to gossip, its heaven is a country village 1 Everybody knows everybody's business better than he knows it himself. The grocery store or the blacksmith shop by day and night is the grand depot for masculine tittle-tattle; and there are always in the village a half -dozes! women who have their sun-bonnets hanging near, so that the first Item of news derogatory they can fly out and cackle it all over the town. Countrymen must not too hard in their criticisms of the citizen, nor must the plow run too sharply against the yardstick. Cities are not evil necessarily, as some have argued. They have been the birth place of civilization. In thorn popular lib erty has lifted its voice. Witness Oonoa and I'isa and Venlee. After the death of Alexander the Great, among his papers were found extensive plans of cities, some to be built in Europe, some to be built in Asia. The cities in Europe were to be oc cupied by Asiatics; the cities in Asia were to be ocrupied, aorording to his plans, f Europeans; and so there should be a com mingling, aud a fraternity, and a kindness, and a good will between the continents and between the cities. Ho there always ought to bo. The strangest thing in my compre hension is that there should be bickerings and rivalries amoug our American cities. Jlew York must stop caricaturiug Plilla delpli a, aud Philadelphia must stop pick ing at New York; and certainly the conti nent is large enough for St. Louis and Chi cago. What is good for one city is good for all the cities. Here is the great high way of our National proserity. On that highway of National prosperity walk the cities. A city with largo forehead anil great brain; that i;l!oston. A city with deliberate step and calm manner; that is Philadelphia. A city with its pocket full of chsngn; that Is New York. Two cities going with a nub that astounds the conti nent; they are fit. Louis and Chicago. A city that takes its wife and children along with it; that is Brooklyn Cincinnati, Louisville, Atlanta, Pittsburgh, all the cities of the North aud all the cities of the Booth, some distinguished for one thing, some for another, one for professional ability, another for affluence, another for fashion, but not one to be spared. What Advantages one advantages all. What danioges Boston Common damages Wash ington Hquare. Laurel Hill, Mount Auburn, Greenwood weep ovor the same grief. New York helping to pay for the obsequies of plague-stricken New Orleans; the fires of Chicago and Boston a sore burn on the whole land; the statue of Benjamin Franklin in Now York greeting the bronze statue of Edward Everett in Boston all the cities a confraternity. I plead for a higher style of brotherhood or s storhood among the cities of this coun try. 'But while there are great differences in some respects, I have to tell you that all these cities impress npon me, aud ought to Impress upon you, three or four very Im portant lessons, all of tbem agreeing in the same thing. It does not make any differ ence in what part of the country we walk the streets of a great city there is one les son, I think, which ought to strike every Intelligent Christian moo, and that is that the world is a scene of toil and struggle. Here and there you find a man in the street who has his arms folded, and who aeeuis to have no particular errand. But If you will stand at the. corner of the street and watch the countenances of those who so by yen will see in most instance there is aa intimation that they are on an errand which must be executed at the earliest mo ment possible. Ho yon are jostled hither and thither by business men. Up this lad der with a hod of bricks, out of this bank with a roll of bills, digging a oellar, shing ling a roof, binding a book, meudlug watch, work, with its thousand eyes and thousand feet and thousand arms, goes on 'ainging Its song, "Work! work I work!" 1 while the drums of the mill beat it and the ateasn-whlstles AX it. In . the carpeted isles of the forest, la' the woods from which tlie eternal shadow is never lifted, '. oa Uie shor of the. sea over whose iron coast tosses the tangled foam, sprinkling ' the cracked cliffs with a baptism of whirl wind and tempest, 1 the best place to study Uod; but in the rushing, swarming, raving street is the Best place to study Uolng down to your place of business and coming home again I charge yon to look , about. Bee these signs of poverty, of wretchedness, of sin, of bereavement; and, as you go through the streets and come back through the streets gather up in the arms of your prayer all the sorrow, all the losses, all the sufferings, all the bereave ments of those whom you pass, and pre sent them In prayer before an all sympa thetic God. In the great day of eternity there will be thousands of persons with whom you in this world never exchanged oue word, who will rise up and call yoa blessed; and there will be a thousand lin gers pointed at you in Heaven, saying: "That is the man, that is the woman wbe helped mo when I was hungry and sick aud wandering and lost and heart-broken; that is the man, that is the woman." Aud the blessing will come down upon you as Christ shall say: "I was hungry and ye fed me; I was naked and ye clothed me; I was sick and In prison and ye visited mo; inas much as ye did It? to these poor waifs of the streets ye did it to me." ., . , . . ' Again, in all those clues I am impressed with fact that all classes' and conditions of society must commingle. We sometimes culture a wicked excluslveness. ' Intellect despises, Ignorance; reiiuement will have nothing to do with boorlshness; gloves hate tho sun-burned hand, s,nd the high forehead despises the flutbeud, and the trim hedge-row will have nothing to do with the wild copse-wood, and Athens hates Nazareth. This ought not so to be. I like this democratic principle of tho Gos pel of Jesus Christ which recognizes the fact that we stand before God on one and the some platform. Do not take on any airs. ,Whatever position you have gained In society you are nothing but a man, born of the same parent, regenerated by the same spirit, cleansed in the tame blood, to lie down lu tho same dust, to got up in the same resurrection. It is high time that we all acknowledge not only the Fatherhood of God, but the brotherhood of man. Again, in all these cities I am Impressed with the fact that it is a very hard thing for a man to keep his heart right and get to Heaven. Infinite temptations spring npon us from places of public concourse. Amid so much affluence, how much temp tation to covetousness and to be discontent ed with our humble lot! Amid so many opportunities for over-reaching, what temptation to extortion It Amid so much display, what temptation to vanity 1 Amid so many saloons of strong drink, what al lurement to dissipation! In the maelstroms and hell-gates of the street, how many make quick and eternal shipwreck! If a man-of-war comet back from a battle and is towed into the navy -yard, we go down to look at the splintered spa' and count the bullet-holes, and look with patriotic admiration on the flag that floated in vic tory from the masthead. But that man is more of a curiosity who has gone through thirty years of the sharp-shooting of busi aess life and yet sails on victor over the temptations of the street. Oh, how many have gouedown under the pressure, leaving not so much as the patch of canvas to tell whore tboy perished. They never had any peace. Their dishonesties kept tolling in their ears. Again, in all these sitioi, I am impressed with the fact that life is full of pretension ami sham. What subterfuge! What double dealing! ' What two-f acedness ! Do all people who wish you good morning really hoe for you a happy duyt Do all the people who shake bands love each other? Are all those anxious about your heulth who inquire concerning it? Do all want to see you who ask you to call? Does all the world know half as much as it pre tends to know? Is there not many a wretched stork of goods with a brilliant store window? Passing up and down these streets to your business and your work, are you not impressed with the fact that socie ty is hollow, and that there are subterfuges and pretensions? Oh, how many there are who swagger and strut, and how few people who are natural and walk! While fops simper and fools chuckle and simple tons giggle, bow few people are natural and luugh ! The courtesan and libertine go down the street In beautiful apparel, while within the heart there are volcanoes of pas sion consuming their life away. I say these things not to create in you incredulity or misanthropy, nor do I forget there art thousands of people a great deal better than they seem ; but I do not think any man so prepared for the conflict of this life until he knows this particular peril. Again, In all these cities I am Impressed with the fact that there is a great field for Christlun charity. There are hunger and suffering and want and wretchedness in the country; bat these evils chiefly congre gate in our great cities. On every street crime prowls and drunkenness staggers and shame winks and pauperism thrusts out its band asking for alms. Here want Is most sqnalid and hunger is most lean. In all the cities East, West, North and Bouth, I notice great temptations to com mercial fraud. Here is a man who starts In business. He says: "I'm going to bt honest." But on the same street, on the same block, in the same business are Shy- locks. Those men, to get tho patronage of any one, will break all understandings with other merchants, and will tell at ruinous cost, putting tholr neighbors at great dis advantage, expecting to make up the deficit in something else. If an honest principle could creep Into that man's soul it would die of sheer loneliness. The man twists about trying to escape the penalty of the law and despises God, while be Is just little anxious about the Sheriff. The honest man looks about him and says: "Well, this rivalry is awful. Perhaps I am more scru pulousthan I need be. This l.ttle bargain I am about to enter is a little doubtful; but then I shall only do as the rest." And so I had a friend who started in commercial life and as a book merchant, with a high resolve. He said : "In my store there shall be no books that I would not have my fam ily read." Time passed on and on day I went Into his store and found torn iniquit ous books on the shelf, and I said to him: "How Is it possible that yoa can consent to ell such book at these?" Oh," he replied, "I have got over those Puritanical notions, A man can not do business In this day un less he does it the way other people do it." One of the mightiest temptations in com merclal Ufa la U our cities to-day Is tb fact that many professed Christians men ar not square in their barglns. Such men are in Baptist, Mathoidst and Congre gational churches,' and onr own denomi nation is at largely represented as any of them. Our good merchants ar foremost in Christian enterprises; they are' patro- nlzers of art, philanthropic and patriotic God Will attend to tbem in the day of Hit coronation. I am not siwakin" of them, ibut of those In commercial life who are sot' tine a ruinous example to our young nier leaanta. Go through all the stores and olfloM In our cities, ana toil me la how many of those store and ofllces are the principle of Christ't religion dominant. In three-fourths of them? No. In half of them? No. In one-tenth of them? Decide for yourself. The impression It abroad somehow that charity can consecrate in iquitous gains, and that if a man give to God a portion of an unrighteous bargain then the Lord will forgive him the rest. The Secretary of a benevolent society come to me and said: "Mr. So-cnd-Ss has given a largo amount of money to the missionary cause," mentioning the sum. I said: "I can't belisve it" He said: "It is so." Well, I went homo staggered and confounded. I never knew the man to give any thing. But after a while I found out that he had been engaged in the most infumous kind of a swindle, and then ho promised to compromise the matter with the Lord, saying: "Now, here is so much for theo, Lord. Please to let me oil 1" I want to tell you that the Church of God is not a shop for receiviug stolen goods, and that if you have taken any thing from your fellows you bad better return it to the man to whom it belongs. Look around aud see the alluroments to dissipated life. Bad bonks, unknown to father and mother, creeping into some oi the best families of the community; aud boys read them while the teacher is look ing the other way, or at recess, or on the corner of the street when the groups are gathered. These books are read late at night. Katun finds them a smooth plank on which he can slide down into perdition some of our sons and daughters. Reading bad books, one never gets over it. The books may be burned, but there is not enough power in all the apothecary's preparations to wash out the stain from the soul. Fathers' hands, mothers' hands, sisters' hands, wil not wash it out; none but the hand of the Lord can wash it out. Ah, the most dreadful part of the whole thing is that there are persons abroad whose whole business it is to despoil the youug. Ah, what an eternity such a man will have ! As the door opens to receive him thousands of voices will cry out: "See, here is what you have done;" and the wretch will wrap himself with fierce flamo and leap into deeper darkness, and tho multitude he has destroyed will pursuo him and hurl at him the lung, bitter, relent less, everlasting curse of their own anguish. If there be oue cup of eternal darkness more bitter than another, they will have to drink it to the dregs. If in ail the ocean of the lost world that comes billowing up there be one wave more fierce than another it will dash over them. Young men, after you go home, wh lo you have time to reflect upon these things, and before the duties of the office and the store and the shop come upon yon again, look over this whole sulijeet, aud after the day ha passed, and you hear in the night the voices and footsteps of the city dying from your ear, and it gets so silent that yoa can bear distinctly your watch under your pillow going "tick, tick," then open your eyes, and look out upon the darkness, and see two pillars of light, one horizontal, the other perpendicular, but changing their direction until they come together, and your enraptured vision beholds it the cross! "NOBODY ASKED ME." . Mistaken Views of Certain Young People The Christian's Duty and Privilege. Youth's Companion. The police in Philadelphia recently in ado a descent npon an infamous house, aud ar rested twenty-three young girls whom they fouud in it. Of these, eleven proved to be shop-girls employed in the cheaper class of retail houses. A clorgyman, hear ing of this, went to tho station-house the next morning to try to help them. Ap proaching a bright-looking youug woman, he said: "What possible inducement could yoa find to go into that terrible, placo? I see no temptation In it" "No," she said. "But if you had worked on your feet from soven in the morning un til eleven at night, for three dollars a week, you would be tempted by a warm, bright room and a good supper. That is what I went for at first Afterwards came the drink and daucing. "But my church," he persisted, "was open, warm and lighted, near the shop whore you work. Why did you never come there?" "Nobody asked mo," was ber saucy re ply. "I was coaxed, almost forced, into the other house. Most people only go where they art invited." Now there it a good deal of false clap-trap In this answer. There it not a shop-girl nor shop-boy, nor any other man or woman who caa read in this country, who doct not know that the fate of bis or ber soul It the most terlout matter in life. Under all their work, or fun, or every -day chatter, then are time when this consciousness comes horn to them with a grip like deutb. It it a question which must be answered. Tboy know, too, that the churches ar open, and that if they choose to enter, they will be helped to find that answer. But on the other hand, Christian people know the habit of young men and women to thrust religion out of sight as gloomy and vexatious. It is, therefore, the Chris tian's duty to show them that it is neither the on nor the other; it 1 their duty, and should be their pleasure, to bring it Into their dolly lives as warmth, and light, and hope. The homes, clubs, reading-rooms and social organizations founded by some Of the churches for busy poor people, and for young men and young women, who otherwise would be walking the Btreets, or going to questionable places of amusement, help to do this. It Is not enough to build a costly church, rent th paw, except a few of the poorer one at th back, or In the gallery, and leave these young people and th poor to com into them or not, as tbey choose. Th Master bade Hit servants prepare th sapper, and then finding the guest did not come, H told them to "go out into th highways and byway and compel them to com In." A Model Charge to a Jury.

A Twelve-Year-Old Massachusetts Lad risers Rooks and Ralls Upon a Rail Road Track, In the Hope of Emu latlng Jesse James. Fltchburg Cor. Boston Globe. .Norman Z. Jones, of Shirely, the twelve- yoar-old boy who made two attempt to wreck passenger trains on the Fitcbburg Road yesterday, is now in jail here. Aftei the obstructions on the track had been dis covered Station Agent Anderson, of Fitch- burg, and Special Detective McElheny,went to Diamond Rock, learned that boy had been seen lingering in that vicinity, and proceeded to search the adjoining woods. Mr. Anderson drove about a mile from the place where the obstructions were found and encountered a small boy with a natcnei and knife in hit belt and a general "I'm-a- bad-man" make-up. Mr. Anderson cap tured the " bad man" without bloodshed end charged him with trying to wreck the trains. The youngster stoutly denied that be had anything to do with the deviltry until bo was taken to Diamond Rock by the agent and the detective, and, fitted to some footprints where the track was ob structed, when he admitted that he had placed the rocks and rails on the track "for fun." The young Jesse James proved to be Nor man Z. Jones, son of Zephas Jones-, of Shir ley, and his parents wore at once notified of his arrest, but they did not appear yes terday when he was arraigned in court am' held for trial November 8. Young Jones was taken to the jail, and in reply to the questions of the officers he told a yarn about a strange man forcing bim to put thr rocks on the track and holding bis wrists while he was doing the mischief. To-night a reporter called at the jail, and the young wrecker was brought into the guard-room and questioned about his exploit He re peated the story of the strange man, but with so many variations and Improbabili ties that its falsity was perfectly apparent The man sent him iy the track, he said, and remained wltbin balling distance wnue ne was placing the obstructions. He did not know the man, but he knew that the same man had tried to induce other boys, whom he did not know, to do the same thing a long time ago. Later, be declared that it was another man, whom he designated aa "Redhead," who bad approached the other and unknown boys. When asked if be bad been reading dime novels, he said be read tbem when he could get them, and he ex pressed some admiration for Jesse James. "What did you put the rocks on Metroes: forf" he was asked. "To stop the trains," replied young Jonct with cool indifference. "Didn't you know that yon might throw the traint off and kill somebody?" "Wasn't enough rocks to do that Be sides, they could see 'em In time.". "But they might not have soen tbem." "An engineer alu't no good if he can't see things on the track. I just wanted tc stop 'em." '.-. "Then there wasn't any man with your" "Was, too." ' ' And so the youngster went on, sullenly sticking to his preposterous story of, the mystical man, and showing no signs ol contrition. Ho could not tell what be in tended to do in case of a wreck, but be was quite sure that no detective could have caught the redoubtablo Jesse under simi lar circumstances, because Jesse would have fought, and he regretted that be had nothing but a hatchet with which to de fend himself. "A hatchet ain't good for nothing," he said. "I'd rather hav a knife." When asked what be would do with a knife, a cunning look came into his face, and he answered : "I'd whittle with It" From the cautious replies given by tht youngstor to numerout questions, it ap pears that he has run away from horns several times, armed with surii weapons ai he could get bold of, and camped In tht woods alone. He made no complaint about his treatment at home and gav no reason for his escapades. The trouble with him is that his head is full of the perni cious stuff which is printed in flash papers and cheap novels, and he it Imbued with ambition to emulate the deedt of bold burglars, train robbers and the miscellane ous miscreants who ore-held up as heroes be for Young America. He it a well grown boy for hit age and a hardy young liar. Hit face Indicates Intelligence enough and more than cunning enough, and he ap pears to rather enjoy being regarded as a bard case. When locked up In the jail bt told another prisoner that he could get out if be had a knife, and proceeded to ex plain how the job could be done. H fur ther declared that if they should send bim to tbe Reform School tbey could not keep him there a week. Th prospects are that tb youthful traln-wreoker will be given an opportunity to test th security of tht Reform School. THE QUILL TOOTH-PICK.
