AMEKICA TOR GOD, Dr. Talmatre Diaoonraee on the Immensity of Oar Country. A Otwsaae n p ssT the Wiosifal ' Sssssrj mt ta Omt Was Its BlooSliss ..... H.W the OmUmI U to to antiihii, Im kit recent vma at the Brooklyn Tab imc Rev. T. DeWitt Taimairn. chose for sts subject, "from Ocaaa to Ocean, or Hj lnaHOBUimiii rfonrney. lezt: rzalina ixxiL 8: -lie shall hava dominion from m tosse. The eloquent divine spoke aa tol Wast two ataa an referred tot Horn fcipfct str last the tort meat that Christ was to reign over all the land bet wen the Arabian Km and Caspian Sea, or Beaweea tb Red 8ee and tae afeditenaneas Sea, or etwees toe Black Bea and tke Hortk Hea. Bo; is sack eases mr text would bare aas then. It meant freoi aay largo body of water oa the earth dear across to aay other large bod; of water.- And so I hare a right to read it: lie shall hareflominion from the AtUnttr ca to the Paatic Bea. . Hj them Ja: Anera for Uod I First, consider the immensity of this pes. ' session. If it wars oaly a small tract of toad capable of nothing better than tags brush and with ability only to support praineoops, I should sot Bare much ea thDsiasm in wan linr Christ to hare K added to His dominion, liot its immeasltj and af fluence so one can imagine unless la Immi ' grant wagon or stsge coach or la rail traia of ths L'niim Pacific or the Sortkern PaciHe I I. .! or the Ctnadiaa PaaHe or the Bouthem Pa ff ' f ' 'cine, .he has traversed it, Harinr bees rTiTiirgeo six umes to crass una ceouneut, and twice this summer, I ha re come to some sporeruHira of its majraitode. California, which I (cpuaed ia boyhood from its site Oa the map, was a few yards sere. Bridge of land on which one most walk oantionsly bat he hit hi bead afrsinst the ttierra Sera daoa the one side or slip off tato the Fa tine waters oa the other; California, the thin slice of land ss I supposed it to bs la 7 boyhood, I bars found to ba larger 1 than sB the Stsaea of Kew Kaaiaad sod all Hew Tark 8 tats and all Pennsylvania aoded together; and If rou add them to gether their square miles fall far abort of California. Korth sad Houlh Dakota, Mon tana, aad Washington Territory, to bo launched next winter into statraood, will be giants at their birth. Let the Congress of the United (Mates strata a point and soon admit also Idaho and If yarning and Mew atexioo. What is the use keeping them out is the cold aay longer? Let oa bare the whole continent di Tided into States with Senatorial sad Congressional represents. - tires and wa will all ba happy together. If one of them hare aot quite the requisite asmber of people. Ox up the Constitution to suit these cases. Erea Utah will by dropping polygamy soon be ready to enter. Monoga . my has triumphed ia parts of Utah and will probably triumph at this fall election la Salt Lake City. Turn ail the Territories Into States aad if some of the sisters sra smaller than the elder sisters, giro them time and they win soon ba as large as aay of them. Because some of the da ugh tors of a family may be are feet in stature and the others only four fort, do sot let the dan Fillers Bra feet high shut the door la ' the faces of those who are only four feet kirn. Among the dying utterances pf our good friend, the wise statesman and giant author, the brilliant orator and magnificent soul, & a Cox, was the expressed deter atinatiou to nwreliext winter tn Congress lor the transference of other Territories into States. - "But," say some one, la calmUUng the Inns entity of our continental acreage you , mast remember that vast reaches of our pshlie domain are tnrulti rated heaps of . dry sand, and the Jad lacda' of Montana sod the great American desert," I am glad you mentiooed that. Within twenty-lira years there will not be between the Atlaa lie aad Padnc coasts a hundred miles of land aot reclaimed either by farmer's plow 1 sr miners' crowbar. By irrigation, the waters of the rivers sod the showers of searra hi what are called the rainy season wll! be gathered Into great reservoirs and through aqueducts let down where and when the people want them. Utah is an ob led lesson. Some parts of that Territory which were so barren that a spear of grass sou Id not hare been raised there ia a hun dred years are bow rich aa Lancaster County farms of Peansylvaais, or Westchester farms of Sew York, or Somerset County farms of Sew Jersey. Experiments hare prored that ten acres of . ground irrigated from waters gathered in . great hydrologies! basins will produce as much a fifty acres from the downpour of rain as seen in our regions. We hare our . freshets and our droughts, but in those Unas which are to be scientifically irrigated there will be neither freshets nor droughts. As you take a pitcher and get it full of , water and then set it on a table aad take Irfnk out of It when you are thirsty, and sever think of drinking a pitcherful all at ' SDce, so Montana and Wyoming and Idaho will casrb the rains of their rainy season and take up all the waters of their rivers ia treat pitchers of rnserroira and drink out tt them whenever they will, and refresh 1 their land whenever they will. The work has already been grandly begun ( by ths United States Government. Over four hundred lakes have already been offl. dally taken possession of by the nation for the great enterprise of Irrirattoa. Hirers that have been rolling idly through these ra tions, doing nothing on their wsy to theses, will be lassoed sad corralled and penned up until such time as the farmers need them. , Under the same processus the Ohio, the Mis . stsslppi and all the other rivers will be taught to behave themselves better, aad . great basins will be made to catch the sur plus of waters ia Umes of freshet aad keep , them for times of drought. The Irrigating process by which all ths arid lands between the Allan tie and Pacific oceans are to be fer tilised Is no new experiment It has beet going on successfully hundreds of years In Spain, ia China, ia India,, In 'Rossis, la fcgypt. About eight hundred million of people of the earth to-day are kept alive by food raised on Irrigated land. Aad here we have allowed to lie waste, aven up to rattlesnake and bat and prairie dog, lands enough to support whole nations of Industrious popu- ' uvtion. The work bogus will be consum mated. Here aad there exceptional lands msy ba stubborn and refuse to yield aay wheat sreorn from their bard Osnv, but if the hoe fall to make an Impression, the miner's pick -axe will discover the reason for it and bring up from beneath these ss productlrs surfaces coal snd iron, and lead and copper, and silver sad gold. God spend ths geologists sad the surveyors, the angt aeers sad the Senatorial commissions, snd the capitalists aad the sew settlors, and lha husbandmen-who put their brain and hand and heart to ht traaulrvratsrn iof ths) ' American continent! . ' ( j i . ! M ' ; But while I k if the t ' continent, I i rortark it . sot s-i . menslty of ii'r. r t .. lie larger sone it unities are Ui srsjrssilrih world. This continent is not mors reanark eule for Its smsgBltade than for Its wondan of eonstrcct'on. Whit x ptty the United States Gon-rnment did not take prist esliia of Yosetni CaL, as it has of Yellowstone, Wyoming, uud Of XLimra Falls. KewVnrsrl Yoeemite red the adjoiaiug California ro- rioasi m to has area (hem can think of there without karini- his blood tiiuiel Trees now standing there that were old when Christ lived. These monnrcha of foliage reipntxl before Cansr or Alexander,' snd the next thousand years will not shat ter their scepter. Tl-ey are the masts of we cvnnnenia. their canvas spread on the winds while the old ship bears os its way through the vts. Their sise. of which travelers often speak, does not sffect me se much as their longevity. Though so old now. the branches of some of them will crackle in the last acSagraCon of the planet. The valley of the Townite is eight miles tons; snd s half tulle wide and three thou sand feet deep, tt sc-ms si if it had beet the mesn:ag of Umni; enre to crowd into as small a pkcc as peaiUesoooof the most stupeudocs avenery d? the world. Some of the cliffs yoa do nnttop to measure b feet, for they are literally a mile high. Steep so that neither foot of maa nor beast ever scaled them, they atand ia everlasting de fiance, if Jehovah hasa throne on earth these are its waits pillars. Standing down ia this great chasm of the valley you look up and yonder Is Cathedral Rock, vast. gloomy miaster built for the silent worship sr the mountains. Yonder ia Sentinel Rock. Mm feet high, bold, solitary, standing guard among the ages, ita top seldom touched ua til a bride one Fourth of July mounted it and pi an d the national standards, and the people down In the valiew looked up and saw the bead of the mountain turbaned with stars and stripe. Yonder are the "-Three Brothara," four thousand feet high; "Cloud's Rest," Worth sad South Dome snd heights never captured save by the fiery bayonets of the thunder storm. Ho pause for the eye, no stopping place for the mind. Mountains hurled oa mountaiaa. Meuntatas m the wakeof mountains. Moun tains fluked by mountains. Mountains split. Mountains ground. Mountains fallen. Mountains triumphant. As though Mont Blanc aad the Adirondack and Mount Washington were here uttering themselves ta one magBtBoent chorus of rock and pred pice snd waterfall. Sifting sad dashing inrougn ueTocaa, the water comes down. The Bridal Vail Kalis, so this you can see the face of the mountain behind it. Yonder ia Yosemite Palls, dropping t,8M feet, six teen times greater descent than that of Hl- arara. These waters dashed to death i the rocks, so that the white spirit of the slain waters ascending la robes of mist seeks the heaves. Yonder is Nevada Fails plunging seven hundred feat, the water in arrows, the water la rockets, the water ia pearla, the water la amethysta, the water ia diamonds That cascade flings down the rocks enough Mnrels to array sll the earth In beauty, and rushes oa until tt drops into s very hell of waters, the smoke of their tor ment sfswdliig forever and ever. But the most wonderful part of this Amer ican continent is the Yellowstone Park. My visit there last month made upon me an Im pression that will last forever. After all poetry has exhausted itself and all the Morana aad Biers tad ta and the other en chanting artists as re completed their can vas, there will be other revelations to make and other stories of its beauty and wrath, splendor aad agooy, to be recited. The Yel lowstone Park ia the geologist's paradise. Bv cheapening of travel may it become the aafin'a playground I In some portions of It there seems to be the anarchy of the ele ments, fire aad water, and the vapor bora of that marriage, terrlna. Geyser cones or all la of crystal that have been ever 8,000 years growing, la plsces ths earth, throb bing, sobatBg, groaning, quaking with aque )oa paroxysm. At the aspiration of every sixty-five min- sles one of the geysers tossing its boiling water las feet in the air, and thea descend ing into swinging rainbows. Caverns of pictured wails large enough for the aepul cher of the bumsa race. Fonnatioae ia tone ia shape snd color of ealla lily, of hell trope, of rose, of cowslip, of sunflower and of gtadiola. Sulphur snd arsenic, snd oxide of iron, with their delicate pendla, turning the hills Into a Luxemburg or a Vatican picture gallery. The so-called rhaaatopsis geyser, exquisite as the Bryant poem tt was named after, and the so called Evangeline geyser, lovely ss the Longfel low heroine it commemorates. The so- called Pulpit Terrace from Its white eleva tion preaching mightier sermons of God Ihss human lips ever uttered. The so-called Betbeada geyser, by the warmth of which invalids have already been cured, the An gel of Health continually stirring the waters. Enraged craters, with heat at five hundred degress, only a little below the surface. Wide reaches ot stone ef Intermingled colors, blue ss the sky, green as the foliage, crimson ss the dahlia, white as the snow,. spotted ss the leopard, tswney ss the lion, grizzly ss the bear, in circles, in angles, in tars, In coronets, in stalactites, in stalag mites. Here sad there are pe trifled growths, or the dead trees, and vegetation of other ages, kept through s process of natural em balmment. In some plsces waters ss Inno cent and smiling ss a child making a first attempt to walk from its mother's lap, snd not far off as foaming snd frenzied and un governable as a maniac in murderous strug gle with his keepers. But sfter you have wtcrtircd along the geyserite enchantment for days and begin to feel. ths t there can be nothing more of In terest to you, you suddenly some upon the peroration of all msjesty snd grandeur, the Grand canyon. It ia here that it seems to me and I speak; It with reverence Jehovah seems to have surpassed Himself. It seems a great gulch let down into the eternities. Here, hung up and let down and spread abroad are all the colors of land and sea and sky. Upholstering of the Lord God Al mighty. Best work of the Architect of worlds. Sculpturing by the Infinite, Mas sonry by an omnipotent trowel. Yellow) You never ssw yellow unless you saw It there. Red I You never ssw red unless you ssw It there. Violet! You never ssw vio let unless you saw It there. Triumphant banners of color. In a cathedral of basalt, sunrise and sunset married by the setting Of rainbow ring. Gothic arches, Corinthian. cspitols, aad Kgyptlaa bsatlloas built before hu maa arch iteoturs wss born. Hugs fortifications of granite constructed before wsr forged lis first cannon. Glbreltara and Sebastopols thst never can be taken. Alhsmbras, where kings of strength and queens of beaaty reigned long before the first earthly crown was em pearled. Thrones oa which no one but the King of Heaven aad earth aver sat Fount of waters, at which the lesser hills sra baptized while the riant cliffs stand roasdas sponsors. For thousands of years before that sons wss unveiled to haman eight, the elements were busy, and the gey sera were hewing away with their hot chisel, and fieri ere wars pounding with their eold hammers, and hurricanes were clearing with their lightning strokes, and wnUsimiss giving the finishing touches, and a tr all these forces of nature had dona t rlf tast, In our eeutury' the curtain d Tipped and the world had S new and di v : f t inspired tevelaUoa, the Old Teste ceai written on papyrus, the Kaw Tee ikaaent written' on parohment and now this last testament written an the rocks. . Banging over one ef the cliffs I looked off an til I could not get my breath, thea re treating to a less exposed place I looked down again. Down there is a pillar of rock that ia certain conditions of tho atmosphere looks like a pillar of blood. Yonder are fifty feet of emerald on n base of five hun dred fee of opal Wall of chalk resting oa pedestals of beryl. Turrets of light tre bling on Boors of dsi klinss. The brewn brightening into golden. Snow and cryalal melting into fire of carbuncle. Flaming red cooling into russet. Cold blue warming into saffron. Dull gray kindling into solferina Morning twilight flushing midnight shad owe. Auroras crouching among rocks. Yonder is sa eagle's nest on a shaft of ba salt. Through sa eyeglass we see among It the young eagles, but the stoutest arm of our group can not burl a stone near enough to disturb the feathered domesticity. Yon der ore heights thst would be chilled with horror but for the warm robe of forest foil see with which they sre enwrapped. Altars of worship at which nations might kneeL Domes of chalcedony on temples of porphyry. See all this earnageof color up aad down the din's; It must have been the battle-field of the war of the elements. Here are all the colors of the wall of Heaven, neither the sapphire nor the chrysolite nor the topaz nor the Jacinth, nor the amethyst nor the Jasper nor the twelve gates of twelve pearls, wanting. If spirits bound from earth to Heaven could psas up by way of this canyon, the dash of heavenly beauty would not be so overpowering. It would only be from glory to glory. Ascent through such earthly scenery in which the crystal ia so bright sod the red so flaming would be lit preparation for the "sea of glass mingled with lire." Standing there in ths Grand canyon of the Yellowstone Psrk on the morning of August B, for the most part we heU our peace, but after a while it flashed upon me with such power I could not help but ssy to mycamradea: "What a hall thia would be for the last judgment I" Baa that mighty cascade with the rainbows at the foot of tt. Those waters congealed and transfixed with the agitations of that day, what a place they would make for the shining feet ot Judge of Quick tad dead. And those rainbows look now like the crowns to bs east at his feet At the bottom of this great canyon Is a floor en which the nations of the earth aright stand, and all up and down these galleries of rock the nations of heaven might sit. And what -reverbsrsUon of archangels' trumpet there would bs through sll these gorges and front all ,lbeee oaveras aad over sll these heights. Why should not the greatest of all the days the world shall ever see close amid the grandest scenery Omnip otence aver boiltl O, the sweep of the Americas continent l Sailing sp Puget Bound, its shores so bold thst for fifteen hundred miles s ship's prow would touch the shore before Its keel touched the bottom, I said: "This is ths Mediterranean of America." Visiting Portland aad Tacoma and Seattle and Vic toria aad Fort Townsend and Vancouver's and other cities of that II nth west region, 1 thought to myself: Thea- are the Bostons, New Yorka, Charlestons, aad Savannahs of ' the Pacific Coast But after ell this sum mer's Journeying and my other ' journeys westwaid In other summers, I found that I had seen only a part of the American conti nent, for Alaska is as far west of Ssa Fran cisco as the coast of Maine la east of it, sc that the central city of the American eontl sent Is Ssa Francisco. I have said these thinn shout ths mas-nl- tude ef , the continent snd given you a few specimens of some of Ita wooden to let yon know the comprehensiveneas of the text when It says thst Christ is going to hava dominion from sea to ses; that la, from ths Atlantic to the Pacific Beside thst, ths salvation of this continent mesas the salva tion of Asia, for we are only thirty-six miles from Asia at the Northwest. Only Bearing n traits separatee us from Asia, and these will be spanned by a great bridge be fore soother century closes, snd probably long before that The thirty-six miles of water between these two continents sre not at all deep sea, but have three islands, and there are also shoals which will allow piers for bridges, snd for the most of the wsy the water is only about twenty fathoms deep. The A meri co-Asiaua bridge which will yet span those straits will make America, Asia, Europe and Africa one continent So you see America evangelized, Asia will bs evangelized. Europe taking Asia from one side and America taking it from the other side. Our great grandchildren will cross that bridge. America sod Asis sod Europe sll one, what subtrsctios from the pangs oi sickness! and the prophecies In Revela tion will be fulfilled. There shall be no more sea." But do 1 mean literally that this American continent is going to be all gospelizedl I da Christopher Columbus, when he went ashore from the Bants Msris, and his second brother Alonso, when he went ashore from the Pints, and his third brother Vincent when be went ashore from the Nina, took possession of this country In the name of the Father, and the Son and the Holy Ghost Baton has no more right to this country than I bsve to your pocketbook. To hoar him talk on the roof of the temple, where be proposed to give Christ the kingdoms of this world, and the glory of them, you might sup pose that Satan wss a great capitalist or that be wss loaded up with real estate, when the old miscreant never owned an acre or an inch of ground on this planet For that reason I protest against something I heard and saw this summer snd other summers In M on tans and Oregon and Wyo ming and Idaho and Colorado and California, They have given devilistio names to many places in the West snd Northwest As soon ss you get in Yellowstone Psrk or California you have pointed out to you places cursed with such names ss "The Devil's Slide," "The Devil's Kitchen,'' "The Devil's Thumb," "The Devil's Pul pit" "The Devil's Mush Pot," "The Devil's Tee Kettle," "The Devil's Ssw MM," "The Devil's Machine Shop," "The Devil's Gste," sad so on. Now It la very much needed that the geological surveyor or Con gressiooal committee or group of d is tin-, rusihed tourists go through Montana and Wyoming snd Call forms snd Colorado snd give other names to these plsces. All these regions belong to the Lord snd to a Chris tian nation, and away with such Plutouio nomenclature. But how la this continent to be gospelizedl The pulpit and the Christian printing press harnessed together will be ths mightiest team for the first plow. Rot by she power of cold, form si Is tic theology, not by ecclesi astical technloalltles. I am sick of them and the world la sick of them. But it will ba dona by the warm-hearted, sympathetic presentotloB of the fact that Christ is ready to pardon all our sins and heal sll our wounds aad save us both for thia world and tho next Let your religion of glaciers crack off and fall into the Uulf stream snd get melted. Take all your creeds of all de nominations aad dropout of them all human phraseology and put la only scriptural phra seology and yon will sea now quick the peo ple will Jump after then. On the Columbia River s few dsrs uo sra saw the salmon jump clear out of ths water In different plaoea, I suppose for the pur pose of getting the in seats. And if when wewsntto fish for men we could only ksve the right kind of bait, they will spring ! out shove the flood of their si as sad sorrow to reach it The Toon? Men's Christian Associations of America will also do part of Itowork. All orwr the eootimi it I ssw this summer their new buildings arising. Ia Vancouver's I naked: "Wfcareyoagoing to put on that sightly placet ". The saswer was: A Young Men's Christian Associa tion building."- At Lincoln, Neb., I said: What are they making thaw excavations for!" Answer: "For our Young Mens Christian Ajsociatioo building." At Des Moines, Ia., I ssw a noble structure rials, sod i asked for what purpose it was beug built, and they told me for the Young Men's Christiss Association. These hull unions are going to take the young men of thia nation for God. These institutions seem ia better favor with God and maa thaa ever before. Business men and capitalists are awaking to the fact that they caa do nothing better in the way of living beMncenoo or in last will and testa ment thaa to do what Mr. Marquaad lid for Brooklyn when he made our Young Men's Christian Palace possi. ble. These Institutions will get our young men all over the land Into a stam pede for Heaven. Thus we will sll in some way help oa the work, with your tea talents, I with five, somebody else with three. It is astimatod that to irrigate thesrid snd desert lands of America as they ought to be Irrigated It will coat about one hundred million dol lars to gstherthe waters into reservoirs. As much contribution snd effort sa that would Irrigate with gospel Influences sll the waste places of this continent Let us by prayer aad contribution and right living all help to fill the reservoirs. Yon will carry a bucket and you a cup, and even a thimble ful would help. And after while God will send the floods of mercy so gathered, pouring down over all ths land, aad some of us oa earth and some of us In Heaven will sing with Isaiah: "Ia the wilderness waters hava broken out and streams in the desert," sad with David: "There ia a river the streams whereof shall soaks glad the sight of God." U, fill up the reservoirs! America for God ! FAMILY STANDARDS. That Btakas she Trnssurg mt CfcOdresi ef swati Or I UnspssMlalttty. No stream can flow higher thaa Ita source, rhe com blned honesty of any family will aot be higher than the laws governing Ita training. The Individual who was born and trained m a family where strict Integrity sad truth wereaaknowa hss that much harder battle to flght ia overcoming the sanoenctos of sis nature. It ia thia that makes the training )f young children such a tremendous re sponsibility. Is there a sadder sight than the puzzled txpreasioa ef a child's face when the mother whom it loves with the whole strength ot its being utters a social falsehood In Its presence! snd yet tt is aot so rare a sight ss it should be. Caa there be a standard of truth la a family where the daily life of the family la aa untruth, where the effort to ap pear is far greater thaa the effort to be! To give a child the right standards there net be harmony la his life, and them can bo ae aarmony without truth. The small boy ia aa infant class struck the very foun ts lions of life when be exclaimed to a little flii eovered with shame and confusion be cause ker cap had been knocked off, re vealing a smoothly-cropped bead and the row of curls tewed fast to the ruches of the rap on the floor: "Hat ye needn't be so shsmed If ye hadn't made believe!" It Is the "make believes" that cause the morti fication. The man whose house is built oa the rock troth kas a sura foundation; he aommands respect without question, snd seed fear ao man's oomtnent "Electricity jaa aot follow a broken wire, nor success a tying lifei" "I teach my children to speak the truth" Is but a small part of a moral jducation. Are they taught to live Itt Is the home life, by example as well aa pre sept a life of troth I Within a few days the papers have recorded Ave heavy em bezzlements. The principals concerned, is far ss their histories hare been re vealed, were - men who had peculiar social advantages; at least three of them were born into homes of wealth, and all were men who had had every educational advantage. The partner of one said : "I "al ways knew be wss careless, but supposed he was honest" Will a strictly honest man be careless where money matters are in volved! Will s man to whom truth la more than a tongue accomplishment be careless to criminality! You may say he la weak, but "there Is a weakness that is as criminal ss wickedness," snd it is this weakness thst is a sure indication of the lack of courage inseparable from truth. Truth, like love, is universal la Its mean ings, and a love of it, devotion to it is a perfect equipment for sll of life's battles. Christian Union. Genuine Recuperative Rest. Not absolute inaction, but a change of modes of setion, is recuperative rest to s man In his waking hours. He who would be refreshed for renewed Intellectual activ ities by sa Intermission of his ordinary oc cupation, must see to it thst his brain is kept at work In another direction during that interval, or he will return to his old iuties with less power than before for the perform snos of those duties. To expect to nin strength. In one's Intellectual faculties by sn entire cessation of their use for weeks together, is ss unreasonable ss it would be to expect to gain muscular power by re fusing to use the muscles for the same length of time, or to gain skill In musics! nerution by refraining for an extended period from sll musical practice. If, Indeed, a man were to Intermit sll Intellectual ac UviUesduring any one month, or two months of the year, it would be sn Impossibility for him to come back to his work at the end of that time aa well fitted for it as when he left it for this period ot enervatiog idleness. Recuperative rest is desirable for every hard-worked man or woman; but recupera tive rest In one's waking hours can come only through a change of work, never through aa absolute cessation of work. & a.
