Rev. T. DeWItt Talmage, D. D., preached
at Bt Lonls recently to a vast audlenoe.
Bis subjeot waa "Tbe Blv gbter," and bis
text, Proverbs, vll, Bl : "As an ox to the
alauKhter." The eloquent preacher spoke
aa follows :
There la nothing In the voice or manner
of the butcher to lndlrate to the ox that
there Is death abend. Tbe ox thinks be la
going to arloh puaturefleld of olover.where
all day long be will revel In the herbaoeoua
ruiuriance; but after awhiln the men and
tbe boys close In upon him with sticks and
stones and ihou ting, and drive blm through
bars Into a doorway, where he la fastened.
and with a well-aimed stroke the axe fella
him; and so the anticipation of the redolent
pasture Held Is oomptf telv disappointed. Bo
Bonny a young mnv bus been driven on by
temptation to what be thought would be
paradisaical enjoyment; but after awhile
Influence with darker hue and swarthier
arm olos In upon blm, and be finds that In
ateadrf making an exourslon into a garden
be has been driven "aa an ox to the alaugh-
ier."
First We are apt to blame young men for
being destroyed when we ourht to blame
tbe Influences that destroy them.' Bocinty
slaughter a great many young men by the
bene!, 'You' must keep np appearance
whatever be yon r salary, you must dress a
wen as otners, you mast wine and brandy
as many friend, you must amok a costly
cigar, you must give aa eipanle enter
tainmenta, and you must live In aa fashiona
ble boardiair hoiiae. If yen haven't the
money, borrow. If you can't borrow, make
a false entry, or Subtract here and there a
bill frame bundle of hank bills; you will
enty have to make tbe deception a little
while; in a few months, nr veer or two,
you cm make all right Nobody will be
hurt by it; aobody will be the wiser. Ton
yenraolf will not be damaged." By that
awful proceis a hnrdred thooeand men have
been slaughtered for time and slaughtered
lor eternity.
Buppoit yon borrow. There la nothing
wrong about bormwlng money. There Is
hardly a man In this bue but baa some
Imea borrowed money. Vast estate bave
been built on a bo- rowed dollar. But there
are two kinds of borrowed money. ' Money
borrowed for the purpose ot starting or
keeping np legitimate enterprise and ex
pense, and money borrowed to get that
which ya ean do without. Tbe first is
right the other la' wren. If you have
money enoagb of vour own to buy a coat,
however plain, and then you borrow money
for a dandy' outfit you bave taken the
Brat revotuMoa nf the wheel down rradn;
Borrow for tbe beceesitiee: that may be
wall. Borrow for. tbe Inxnrlee; that tip
year prninret evev In tbe wrong direction.
The Bible dlallnotly aavs the borrower
servant of tbe lender. It I a bad state of
thing wbn yen bave to go down some
ether street to escape meeting some one
whotn yon ewe. ' If y tjng men knew what
Is tbe leapotlsm of being In debt, more ot
them would keep out of It What did debt
do for Lord Bacon, with a mind towering
above the eratnrteat it Induced blm to take
bribe aad convict himself a a erimlna) be
fore all age. What did d' bt do for Walter
BeoVt Broken hearted at Abbotaford. Kept
blm writing nntll hi band gave out In naral-
jrala to keep the ahertff away from hi plot
nret ana ratnary. ' m tter lor Mm if be
bad minded the maxim whteh he had cblaeled
ever tb n replace at Abbotaford, "Wa ts
not, want aot" , i i
The trenble to, my friends, tbe people da
not understand tbe ethlos of going In debt
ana ibbi II you purchase goods with no ex
peotatlon of paying for them, or go Into
debtawhleb-you can not meet, yon steal Just
so mo.cn money, it I go Into a grocer's
store, and I buy sugars and eoffeea and
meet, with no capacity te pay for them
and no lifentlon of paying for them, I am
more dishonest tban If I go Into tb store,
and whan the grocer's face I turned the
other way I fill mv pocket with the arti
cle! of irenonandlse and carry off a ham. In
the one ease I take the merchant' time.
and I take tbe t me of Mi meaner) irer In
transfer Hie goods to my house, while In the
other ease I take none of tbe time of the
men-bant and I wait upon myself, and I
transfer tbe gooda without any tronble te
blm. In other words, a sneak thief Is not
so bad aa a man who oontract debts he
never expect te pay.

out of the five hundred. All this make me
solicitous In reirnnt to young men. and I
want to make them nervous in regard to the
contra tlon of unpayable debt. I give yoa
a paragraph from my own experience. ;
My first settlement aa poator waa In a
village. My salary wna tbXX) and a parson
age. The amount seemed enormo'is to me.
I said to myself, "What I all this for one
year!" I waa afraid of getting worldly
under so muoh prosperity I I resolved to In
vite all tbe oongregatlon to my bouse
groups of twenty-five each. We began, and
aa they were the beat congregation In all
tbe world, and we felt nothing waa too good
for them, we piled all tbe taiur lea on the
tabic. I never completed the undertaking.
At the end of six months I was In financial
despair. I found what every young man
learns In time to aave hlmielf, or too late,
that you must mraure the alze of a man's
brdy before you begin to cut the cloth for
niseoat
Whon a yonng man wilfully and of choice,
having the comfort of life, goes Into the
contraction of unpayable debts, he knows
not Into what he goes. . The creditors get
after the dot tor. the pack of hounds In full
cry, and alaal for the reindeer. ..Tbey jin
