DeWitt Talmftge preached re cently to a large .oqngregatlon Id Borne ; jfrijm tl teVctAists xljc.,at ;I pust alto isee ftome-K Following Is a re ' port of the sermon: - J" ...nereis Paul's Itinerary. He was a . traveling or circuit preacher. lie had been mobbed and insulted, and the more good he did the worse the world treated Elm. But he went right 'on, JJow he proposes to go to Jerusalem and says: ''After that I must also see Rome." Why did he want to visit this wonderful olty in .which. J ajr to-day permitted to 'btand? To- preach the gospel,, you Answer. ,'jTo doubt of it, but there" were . other reasons why he wanted to soe . ' Borne. A man of Paul's intelligence and classio taste had fifty other reasons for wanting to see it. Your Coliseum was ' at that time in process of erection, and he wanted to see it The Forum was even then an old struoture, and the elo- ?uent apostle wanted to see that bulki ng in whloh eloquence bad so often thundered and wept Over the Applsn Way the triumphal processions had al ready marched tor hundreds of years, nnd be wanted to see that The Temple " V of. Saturji Was already an antiquity, and ' 'he wanted to see thai. The architecture of the world-renowned city,' he wanted to see that The places associated with the triumphs, the cruelties, the dlsos . ters, the wars, the military genius, the poetio and rhetorical fame of this ra ' city, he wanted to see them. A ' man , like Paul, so many sided, so sympathetic, so emotional, so full of analogy, could not have been indifferent to the an tiquities and the splendors whloh move ' every rightly organized human being. And with what thrill of Interest he walked these streets those only who for rvthe first time like ourselves entef Rome ilean imairlne. If the inhabitants of all Christendom were gathered Into one Mtlaln.and it were put, to them which two cities they would above all others wish to see, the vast majority of .them f .would vote Jerusalem and Borne. So ' we can understand something of the record of my text and its surround- .Ungu: When, ft says,' Pan) proposed in the spirit when he had passed through ..Macedonia snd Achala' to go. to Joru- salemj. saying! ' "After 'that I must also see Borne." As some of you are ' aware, with my family and pnly for the purpose of what we can learn and the good we can get, I am on the way to Palestine. Since leaving Brooklyn, N. , Y., this is the first place we hsve stopped. Intermediate cities are ' attractive, but we have visited them in other years, and we hastes onj for I said before start lng thay while I "was : jrdlnrto st sJeru salem, Ihiust also-see Jlbim). Whtjo I want to see Wf j MM I wan, by vis - lting rertoris sssorlatod with, Ui great apostle M the ge Stiles, io have1 my faith . in Christianity confirmed. There are. those who will go through large expen diture to have their faith weakened. In my native lend" 1 hsve knows persons of very limited means to pay fifty oenta or 7a dollar to hear a lecturer prove that our Christian religion Is a myth, a dream, : s .sheet, a lie. - On the contrary, I will give all the thousands of dollars that 5,-thie Journey of my family will cost to have additional evidence that our Chris tian religion is a authenticated grand eur, a solemn, s Joyous, a rapturous, s ' stupendous, a .magnlfloent faot So I U want to see Borne. ..'I want you to show me the places connected- with apeatolio "'. ministry. I have heard that In your city and amid its surroundings apostles suf . fered, and died lor Christ's sake. My A common sense tells me that people do " not die for the sake of a falsehood. They may practice a deception for purposes of .. j fata, but put the sword, to their heart ' or arrange the halter around their neck, 1 or kindle the fire 'around their feet and they would say:. jf!My life Is Worth more , than any thing Ice gain by losing it" I hear yon have in this city Paul's dun geon. Show it to me. I must see Borne also. While I am Interested in this elty beoause of her rulers or her citliens who are mighty in history .for virtue or vice or talents, Romulus, and Calif ula, and Cincinnati), and Vespasian, and Corio 'anus, and Brutus, ana s hundred others ' whose nsmes are bright with an exceed lng brightness, or black with the deepest dve. most or ail am i lnteresteo. in in is ... oft-, jecanoe the Dreacher of Mars Hill, ana the defter of Agrlppa, and the hero of the shipwrecked vessel la the break ' ers of Mellta, and . the man who beld higher than any one that the world ever saw the torch of uesurrection, uvea, . snd D re ached, and was massacred here. Show me every place connected with his , ' memory. I must slso see Rome. But my text suggests that In Paul there was sn inquisitive snd curious spirit Had my text only meant that he wanted to preach here he would have said so. Indeed, in another place he doclared: "I am ready to preach the gospel to you who are at Rome." But ' my text suggests a sight-seeing. This man who had been under Dr. Gamaliel bad no lack of phraseology, and was ' . used to saying exactly what be meant and he said: "I must also see Rome." There is such s thing as Christian curi osity. Paul had It and some of us have it About other people's business I have no curiosity. About all that can confirm . my faith in the Christian religion and ' the world's salvation and the soul's fu . ture happiness, I am full of an all-absorbing, all-compelling curiosity. Paul . had a great curiosity about the next world, and so have we. I hope some day, by the grace of Ood, to go over and see for myself, but not now. No well man, no prosperous man, I think, wants to go now.- But the time .will como, I think, when I shall go over. I want to see what they do there, and I want to see how they do it I do not went to be looking ' through the gates ajar forever I want them to swing wide open. There are ton thousand things I want explained about you, about myself, about the gov- ' ernment of this world, about Ood, about every thing. We start in s plain path of what we know, and in a minute come op against a high wall of what we do ' not know. I wonder how It looks over there. Somebody tells me it is like s . paved elty paved with' gold; and an- nthnr man talla mi It is Ilka a fountain. " anil It la Ilka a. tree, and it is like a tri - nmnhal nrocesaion: and the next man I meet tells me it Is all figurative. I really want to know after the body Is resur rected, what they wear and whattbey eat; and I have as Immeasurable ourios ' ity to know what it Is snd how It is, snd where it is.' ColuO risked his ,. ., life to Had the American continent, and shall we shudder to go out on a voyage of discovery which shall reveal a vaster and more brllliantcountry ? John Frank lin risked liis life to find a passage be tween, icebergs, and shall we dread to find a pSHsage to eternal summer? i; Men in Switzerland travel up the holghts of the Matterhorn, with alpenstock, and guides, and rockets, and ropes, and get ting half way up, stumble and fall down in a horrible massaore. They just wanted to say they had been on the tops of those high peaks. And shall we fear to go out for the asoent of the eternal hills which start a thousand miles beyond where stop the highest peaks of the Alps, and when in that asoent there is no peril. A man doomed to die stepped on the scaf fold, and said in joy:' "Now, in ten min utes I wllT kftow 'the' greatest secret" One minute ' after the vital functions ceased the little child that died last night knew more than Paul himself be fore he died. Friends, the exit from this world, or death, if you please to call it to the Christian is glorious explana tion. It I demonstration. It is Illumi nation. It is sun-burst It is the open ing of all the' windows. It is shutting up the catechism of doubt, and the un rolling of all the scrolls of positive and accurate information. Instead of stand ing at the foot of the ladder and looking up, it is standing at the top of the lad der and looking down. It is the last mystery taken out of botany, and geol ogy, and astronomy, and theology. . 0, will it not. be grand to have all ques tions answered? The perpetually recur ring interrogation point changed for the mark of exclamation. All riddles solved. Who will fear to go out on that discov ery, when all the questions are to be de cided which we hove been dlscimslng all our lives? Who shall not clap his hands in the anticipation of that blessed coun try, if U be no better than through holy curiosity? ' As this Paul of my text did not suppress his curiosity we need not suppress ours. Yes, I have an unlimited curiosity about all religious things, and as this city of Rome was so intimately connected with apostolic timos. the Inci dents "of which emphasizo and explain and augment the Christian religion, you will not take it as an evidence of a pry ins spirit but as tho outburstiutr uf a Christian curiosity when 1 say 1 must also see Rome. Our desire to visit this city is also in tensified by tho fact that we want to be confirmed in the fooling that human life is briof, but its work lasts for contu rlna. indeed, forever. Therefore show ua the antiaulties of old Rome, about whloh we have been reading for a life time but never seen. In beloved Amer ica we have no antiquities. A church eiirhtv vears old overawes us with its age. We have in America some cathe drals' hundreds and thousands of years Hu l.tt 4Y.ni, ,M In Vnllnuat.nnn Park nr lIU. UU. imvj n.w . . California canon, and their architecture and masonry were Dy tno omnipotent God. , We want to see tho buildings, or ruins of old buildings, that wore erected hundreds sad thousands oi years ago Dy human hands. They lived forty or sev entv vears. but the arches thoy lifted, the paintings they penciled, tho sculptr ure they chiseled, tne roads tney ism out I understand, are yet to be seen, and we want you to show them to us. I ran hardlv wait until Monday morning. I must also soe ttomo. wo want w ua lmnressed with the fact that what men do on a small scale or a large scale lasts a thousand vears. lasts forcvor, that we build for eternity and that we do so in a verv short space of time. Uod is the only old living presence. Hut it Is an old age without any of the infirmities or limitations Ol U1U KU. muiu yna- sage of Scripture which speaks of the birth of the mountains, for thoro was s time when the Andes were born, snd the Pyrenees were born, and the Sierra Ne vada were born, bat before the birth of those mountains the Blblo tells us Ood was born, sve was never born at all, be cause He always existed. Psalm xo, S: "Before the mountains were Drougnt forth, oor even Thou hadst formed the earth and the world, eve! from everlast ing to everrastlng, Thou art Ood." How short is human life, -hat antiquity at taches to its worth! How everlasting is Ood! Show na the antiquities, the things thst were old when America was discov ered, snd when Psul went up and down these streets sight-seeing, old when Christ was born. I must, 1 must also see Rome! I 'Another reason for our vi.il t to this city is 'that we want to see tho places where the mightiest intellects snd the greatest natures wrought for our Chris tian religion. We have been told in America by some people of swollen hesds that the Christian religion is a pusillanimous thing, good for children under seven years of sge snd small brained people, but not for the intelli gent eel swarthy minded. We have beard of your Constantino the mighty, who pointed his srmy to the cross, say ing: "By this oonquer." If there be sny thing here connected with his reign or his military history, show it to us. The mightiest intellect of the ages was the author of my text snd, if for the Christian religion He was willing to labor snd suffer and die, there must be something exalted and sublime and tre mendous In it; and show me every place be visited, and show me It you ican where he was tried, snd which of your roads leads out to Ostla, that I may see where be went out to die. We ex- rt before we finish this journey see Lake Galilee and tho place where Simon Peter and Andrew fished, and perhaps we may drop a net or a hook and lino into those waters ourselves, but wbon following the track of those lesser apostles I will learn quite another lesson. I want while in the city of Rome, to study the religion of the brainiest of the apostles. I want to follow, as far as we can trace it the track of this great Intellect of my text who wanted to soe Rome also. He was a lotrlclan, he was a metaphysician, he was an all conquering orator, he was a poet of the highest type, lie nad a natnrn that could awamo the loading men of his own day, snd, hurled against the Sanhedrim, he made it tremble. He learned all he could in the school of his native village, then he had gone to a higher school, and there had mastered the Greek and the Hebrew and perfected himself in belles lettres, until, in after years, be astounded the Cretans, and the Corinthians, snd the Athenians, by quo tations from their own autnors. x nave never found anything . in Carlyle, or Goethe, or Herbert Spenoer that could compare la etrength or beauty with Paul's epistles.'1 I do not think there' Is any thing in the writings of 81 William Hamilton that shows such mental dis cipline ss ' yon find in Psul's argument ahont iuitiflcatlott and resurrection. I have not found sny thing in Milton finer In the way el Imagination than I can J find in i a iu. o . ........... . u. - " the amphitheater. .There was 'i from nothing in ' Robert Emmet pleading for hla life- or In Kdmund Burke ar raigning Warren Hastings in Westmin- id the court room when before robed offi cials, Psul bowed and began his speech,'' saying! .."I JtbinK myself happy, BUng Agrlppa, because I shall answer for my-, self this day." I repeat that a religion that can capture saan like that must have some power in it It is lime our wiseacres stopped talking as though all the brain of 'he world were opposed to Christianity.?' Where Paul leads, we can afford to follow. I am glad to Know mat Christ has, ill the different ages of the world, had in Hie disolpleship a Moiart and a Handel In music, a Raphaol and lleynolds in palntisgi-an Angelo. and s Canova in sculpture; a Rush and a Har vey in mediolne; a Grotius snd a Wash ington in Statesmanship; a Blackstone, a Marshall and a Kent in the law; and the time will come when-the religion of Christ will conquer all the observatories and unlvlrsitles, and philosophy will, through her telescope, Denoia tne morn ing star of Jesus, and in her laboratory see that "all things work together for good," and with hen geoglogical ham mer discern the "Rock of Ages." 0, in stead of cowering and shivering: when the skeptio stands before us, and talks of religion as though it were a pusillani mous thing Instead of that, let us take our New Testament and read the story of Paul at. Rome, or' come and see this city for eurselves, andlearn that It could have been nd weak gospel that actuated sueh a man, but that it is an all-conquer ing gospel. Ayei for au ages tue power of Uod and the wisdom of God unto sal vation. " ' : '. . '.'''' 11 ' Men, brethren and fathers! I thank you for this opportunity of preaching the gospel to you that are at Rome also. The churches of America salute you. Upon you who are, like us, strangers in Rome, I pray the protecting and Jour neying care of Ood. Upon you, who are resident here, I pray" grooe, meroy and peace from Uod our atner ana tne Lord Jesus Christ After tarrying here a few days we. resume our Journoy for Palestine, and we shall never meet again, either in Italy or America, or what is called the Holy Land, but there' is a holler land, and there we may meet saved by the grace that In the same way saves Italian and American, ana mere, in that supernal clime, after embracing Him who, by his sufferings on the hill back of Jerusalem made our Heaven possible, and riven salutation to our own kindred, whose departure broke our hearts on earth, we shall, I think, seek out tho traveling preacher and mighty hero of the text who marked out his Journey through Macedonia and Achala to Jerusalem, saying: "After I have, been there, I must also see Rome." TARAPACA BATTLE-FIELD. Covered With tha Mummified Bodies of Men Slain Tan Tears Ago. Captain Thompson of the schooner Challenger has Just returned from long cruise in the Sea and along tne South American coast . -He had In bis possession a little black earthenware jar which was taken, with valuable jewel ry, from the tomb of one of the Peruvian Incas, near Pisagua.-. No tinted pottery is made by modern Peruvians, and it is estimated that this Jar was made In. the time of Cortes,' The Capitals, i also secured one of the' Inca's teeth. He visited the battlefield of Tarapaca, where the Chll llans and Peruvians met November 17, 1879, and the Peruvians, after losing 4,000 men, wore forced to retreat leav ing their dead unburied. "In any other country," said the Cap tain, "these unburied corpses would have been reduced in a few weeks to skel etons by wild animals on the elements, but for over one husdred miles oa either side of the battleground there Is not a spear of grass. There are, consequently, no wild animals snd the bodies remained undisturbed by them. The soil, too, is strongly impregnated with nitrate of soda, and this, in connection with the hot dry stmosphere, bas converted men and horses into perfect mummies. Seen on a bright moonngnt nignt, as i nrai saw it the battle appears as it fought but s day or two ago, the colors of the uniforms being still bright snd the steel of their weapons untarnished. Inspec tion by daylight s curious phenomenon is observed. Tbe hair of the bodies of the men bas grown slnoe death to length of from two to four feet snd the trils of the cavalry Horses are now so long that U eUve, they would trail far behind on the ground."

Tha Amulnf Way la Which Toad Ba- eaees.Hls Sain. ., ; It Is' sale tossy but few people have ever been fortunate enough to catch toad In the act of changing Its skin. A man who professes to hsve been an Interested eye-witness to such a transac tion describes the novel operation as follows: I observed him pressing his elbows against his sides' snd rubbing downwards. ; His movements seemed so slnmilar tbst I resolved to find out ii possible wbst he wss up to. After a few smart rubs his skin began to burst open alona- his back.' "Now," said I, "old fel low. vou have done It" but he appeared to be unconcerned and kept on rubbing until he had worked his skin Into folds on his sides snd hips; then, grasping one hind leg with his fore-psws, be pulled the skin from the lng as slick as a man would remove a pair of pants; then stripped the other bind leg in the same wav. He next tooK tne cast-on portion of his cuticle snd pulled it forward be tween his forelegs until he could catch it in his mouth, whereupon be forthwith began to swallow it; then, by raising and lowering his head, swallowing as the head bent forward each time, he stripped off the skin underneath until it came to bis fore legs. At tnis stage oi the curious proceeding he grasped one of the forelegs with the opposite paw, and by much pulling stripped oft the skin; changing hands, he stripped the nth r. and bv a sliirht motion- of the head, all the time swallowing; he drew it from the neck and swallowed the whole.' The entire operation occupied but a few minutes Of time. su Louis Republic ' ' Opposed to Widow's Weeds.

St Paul held that it was shame to man to wear bis hair long, and so he tells the CorintOlans in his first epistle to them On the other hand, Huyablus, patriarch of Jerusalem; A. D BOO, declared the outward, visible signs of manly perfection to consist in an ample beard snd in hair flawing down the , shoulders. In remote sges the Per sians, who now have their heads shaven, wore long hair. Darius had a most luxuri es! poV and Aloxander, who conquered him, probably paid few visits to the hair cutter's .In. the course of his lite. Al cibiades and his clique of roues Introduced the effeminate fashion of hair Into Greece. Before their time the Athenians were roundheads, and It Is fair to presume that Arlstides the Just who did not pride him self above measure on his devotion to tho graces, sported a good crop of bristles and ignored a comb. ... Herodotus relates that in token of mourn' lng tbe Persians were wont to out oft not onbr their own hair but. the manes of their horses. The same historian tells that the i Ayrians, being defeated by the Lacedemo nians, made a sacrifice of tbelr locks, and vowed that they would remain shorn as long as they had not reconquered Thyras., At Sparta, LyeUrgusi had decreed the wearing of longhair;! but this law, to which Plutarch alludes, was never much obeyed. ' The Spartans, when they attained their, six teenth year, did- ss the young Athenians, and burned their hair upon the altar of either Diana or Mors. The fact la, all the barbarians who nsed to come from aoross the stas In those tunes wore flowing locks, snd the Greeks bed nor wish to resemble them, says the Boston Traveller.. Our prim itive ancestors, the Britons, snd like them, the Gauls, allowed their hair to grow undis turbed. It often reached below the waist and men like Caroctacua must have looked curious. Conquered by the Romans,, the Gauls and Britons were ignominlously Clipped. - In his enumeration of the Galllo tribes led into captivity by Cear, Lucian speaks of the Llguses, "now shorn, but ere srfalle possessed of an abundant mass of hair." Those of the Gauls who obtained tbelr liberation hastened to let tbelr hair grow again; in order the more to mark the importance they attached to flowing locks they took to sharing their slaves. Ia Franca when a Doolatnas was oos victeo Of sny felonious offense- the rojor ra Is variably applied to hla pate, uiotaire L, King of France, caused his ewn sou, Qonde- band, to be shorn for conspiring sgoiast him ; and, by way of adding to tbe aisgrsoe ef bis sentence, he immediately afterward Issued as edict condemning to tbe severest penalties any one who should by stealth or violence eut os me nair or an nonest nun, Tbe hair question assumed disquieting pro portions in France, lor m-the yenriaui Pierre Lombard, Archbishop ofPsria (whose head left much to be desired la.the matter at osoillarr adornment, wss prevailed npoa by the malcontents to become their cham pion. r-Be was a learned and good man, and ao'douM he had often pondered upon the unseemly appearance of hla slose-cllpped crown In the silence of tbe closet until he took np tbe cudgels like a man determined to win.

Bo early In tbe reign oi uenry IL our plebeian forefathers had obtained ex emption from the obligation ef havingtbelr hair cut and they obtained it wiuoat mucn ado. We hear nothing mare about short bair until the sixteenth century. From the time ef PhillD Aurustus to that of Francis L everyone, lord er lumpkin, let his hair fall down his book.

' A oouple of ladles who were recently call ins- in Brooldlne. savs the Boston Courier, were ushered Into a parlor upon the floor of which lav a rus with a middle ol solid crim son. After they had crossed this brilliant expanse they were horrified by tne discov ery that every footstep they bad taken was clearly printed in dust upon the otherwise stainless surface of the rug.
