How to Bettor Peace.
4The Battle of Creeds" was the bud
ject of Dr. Talmago's recent discourse
in Brooklyn Tabernacle. Ills text was
taken from Proverbs xxvL, 10, "lie that
patseth by and meddleth with strife be
longing' not to him Is like one that tak
eth a dog by the ears." Following is
the sermon: ,
Solomon here deplores the habit of
rushing ln'between contestants, of tak
ing part in the antagonisms of others, of
joining In fights which they ought to
ahun. They do no good to others and
get damage for themselves. lie com
pares tt to the experiment of taking a
dog by the ears. Nothing bo irritates
the canines as to be clutched by the
lugs. Take them by the back of the
neck and lift them and it does not seem
to hurt or offend, but you take the dog
by the ear and he will take you with
his teeth. In all the history of kennels
no intelligent or spirited dog will stand
that. "Now," says Solomon, "you go
into quarrels or controversies that are
not yours and you will get lacerated
and torn, and bitten. 'He that passeth
by and meddleth with strife belonging
not to him is like one that taketh a dog
by the ears."1
, This is a time of resounding ecclesias
tical quarrel. Never within your mem
ory or mine has the air been so full of
missiles. The Presbyterian church has
on hand a controversy so great that it
finds it prudent to postpone its settle
ment for at least one more year, hoping
that something will turn up. Somebody
might die or a new general assembly
may have grace to handle the exciting
questions. The Episcopal church has
cast out some recalcitrants, and its di
gestive organs are taxed to the, utmost
in trying to assimilate others. "Shall
women preach?" "Or be sent as dele
gates to conference?" are questions that
have put many of our Methodist breth
ren on the "anxious seat" And tho
waters in some of the great baptistries
are troubled waters. Because of the
controversies throughout Christendom
the air is now like an August afternoon
about 5 o'clock, when it has been steam
ing hot all day; and clouds are gather
ing, and there are Hons of thunder with
grumbling voices and flashing eyes com
ing forth from their cloudy lairs, and
people are waiting fr the full burst of
the tempest I am not much of a weather
prophet hut the clouds look to me
moBiiy line wina ciouas. it may oe a
big blow, but I hope it will soon be over.
In regard to the battle of the creeds, I
am every day asked what I think about
it I want to make lt so plain this morn
ing what I think that no one will ever
ask again.
Let those who are Jurymen in the
.ease, I mean those who In the different
ecclesiastical courts have the questions
put directly before them, weigh and de
cide. Let the rest of us keep out The
most damaging thing on earth Is relig
ious contro versy. No one ever comes
out of it as good a man as he goes in.
Some of the ministers, in all denomina
tions, who, before tlie present acerbity
were good and kind and useful now
aeem almost swearing mad. These
brethren I notice always open theirvio-
lent meetings with prayer before de
vouring each other, thus saying grace
.before meat They have a moral hydro
phobia that makes us think they have
taken a dog by the ears. They never
read the imprecatory psalms of David
with such test as since the Briggs and
Newton and McQuvary and Bridgman
and Brooks questions got into full
wing. May the rams of the sheepfold
soon have their horns sawed off. Before
the controversies are settled a good
many ministers will, through what they
call liberalism, be landed into practical
infidelity, and others through what they
call conservatism, will shrink up into
bigots tight and hard as the mummies
of Egypt which got through their con
troversies three thousand years ago.
This trouble throughout Christendom,
was directly Inspired of Satan. He saw
that too much good was being done.
Recruits were being gathered by hun
dreds of thousand to the Gospel stand
ard. The victories for Ood and the
truth were too near together. ' Too
many churches were being dedicated.
Too many ministers were being or
dained. Too many philanthropies were
being fostered. Too many souls were
being saved. It had been a dull time in
the Nether World, and the arrivals
were too few. So Satan one day rose
upon his throne and said, ''Ye powers
of darkness, heart" And all up and
down the caverns the cry was: "Hear!
Heart" Satan said: "There ia that
American Board of Commissioners for
Foreign Missions. It must either be
demolished or crippled, or the first
thing you know they will have all na
tions brought to God. Apollyon, the
Younger! You go up to Andover and
get the professors discussing whether
the heathen can be saved without the
' Gospel. Divert them from the work of
missions and get them in angry conven
tion in a room at Young's hotel, Boston,
and by the time they adjourn, the cause
Of foreign missions will be gloriously
and magnificently injured. Diabolus,
the Younger! You go up and get Union
Theological Seminary of New York and
the general assembly of the Presby
terian Church at Detroit at swords'
point and diverted from the work of
making earnest ministers, of religion,
and turn that old Prebvtertan Church,
which has been ke eplng us out -of cus
tomers for hundreds of years, into a
aplendtd pandemonium on a small scale.
Abaddon the Third! You go up and as
sault that old Episcopal Church, which
has been storming the heavens for cen
turies' with the suhllmest prayers that
were ever uttered church of Bishop
Lelghton, Bishop White, ' aqd Bishop
McIIvalne, and get that : denomination
discussing men instead of dismissing the
eternities. Abaddon the Fourthl You
go vp to that old Methodist Church,
which has, through her revivals, sen!
millions to neaven, which we would
otherwise have added to our population,
the church of Wesley and Matthew
Simpson, against which wo have an
especial grudge,- and get thein so ab
sorbed in discussing whether women
shall take part in her conference, that
they shall not have so much time to
discuss how many a ns and daughters
she will take to glory." 1
What amazes mo most Is that all peo
ple do not see that the entire movement
at this time all over Christendom Is Sa
tanic. Many of the infernal attacks
are sly and hidden and strategic and so
ingenious that they are not easily dis
covered. But here la a bold and uncov
ered attempt of the powers of darkness
to split up the churches, to get minis
ters to take each other by the throat, to
make religion a 1 ughing-stock of earth
and hell, to leave the Bible with no
more respect or authenticity than an
old almanao of 1823, which told what
would be the change of weather six
months ahead and in what quarter of
the moon It is best to plant turnips. In
a word, the effort is to stop the evan
gelization of the world. It seems to me
very much like this: There has been a
railroad accident and many are wounded
and dying. There are several drug
stores near the scene of casualty. All
the doctors and druggists are needed
and needed right away. Bandages,'
stimulants, anesthetics, medicines of
all sorts. What are the doctors and drug
gists doing? Discussing the contents of
some old bottles on the top shelf, bottles
of medicine which some doctors and
druggists mixed two' or three hundred
years ago. "Come doctors!" "Come drug
gists!" cry the people "ond help these
wounded and dying that are being
brought from beneath the timbers of
the crushed rail train. In a little while
it will be too late. Come, for God's sake!
Come right? awny!" "No," says a doc
tor, "not until we have settled whether
the medicine on that top shelf is rightly
mixed. I say there were too many drops
of laudanum in it and this other man
ays there were too many drops of cam
phor, and we must get this question
settled before we can attend to the rail
road accident" And one doctor takes
another doctor by the collar and pushes
him back against the counter, and one
of the druggists says: "If you will not
admit that I am right about that one
bottle, I will smash every bottle In your
apothecary store," and he proceeds to
smash. Meanwhile, on the lower shelf,
plainly marked and within easy reach,,
are all the. medicines needed for the
helping of the sufferers by the accident;
and in that drawer, easily opened, are
bandages and splints, for the lock
of which fifty people are dying
outside, the drug ntore. Before I
apply this thought every one sees
its application. Here is the old
world, and it is off track. Sin and sor
row have collided with it The groan
of agony is fourteen hundred million
voiced. God has opened for relief and
cure a great Snnitnrium, a great House
of Mercy, and all its shelves are filled
with balsams, with cathollcoiis, with
help, glorious help, tremendous help,
help so easily administered that you
need not get upon uny step ladder to
reach It You can reach it on your
knees and then hand lt to all the suffer
ing and the sinning and the dying.
Comfort for all tho troubled! Pardon
for all the guilty! Peace for all the dy-
intr! But whilo the world is needing the
relief and perishing for lack of it what
of the church? Why, it ia full of fight
ing doctors. On the top shelf are some
old bottles which several hundred years
ago, Calvin or Armlnlusorthe members
of the Synod of Dort or the formers of
the Nicene creed filled with holy mix
tures, and until we get a revision of
these old bottles and find out whether
we must take a teaspoonful or table
spoonful, and whether before or after
meals, let the nations suffer and groan,
and die. Save the bottles by all means,
if you can not save anything else.
Now, what part shall you and I take
in this controversy which fills all Chris
tendom with clangor? My advice is:
Take no part In time of riot all mayors
of cities advise good citizens to stay at
home or in their places of business and
in this time of religious riot I advise
you to go abont your regular work for
God. Leave the bottles on the higher
shelves for others to fight about and
take the two bottles on the shelf within
easy reach, the two bottles which are
all this dying world needs; the one
filled with a potion which is for the
cleansing of all tin, the other filled with
a potion which is for the soothing of all
suffering. Two gospel bottles! Christ
mixed them out of his own tears aud
blood. In them la no human admixture.
Spend no time on the mysteries! You,
a man only five or six feet high, ought
not try to wade an ocean a thousand
feet deep. Mr own experience has been
vivid. I devoted the most of my time
for years in trying to understand God's
eternal decrees, and I was determined
to find out why the Lord let sln come
into the world, and I set out to explore
the doctrine of the Trinity, and with a
yardstick to measure the throne of the
Infinite. A with all my predecessor
the attempt wa a dead failure. For the
last thirty years I have not spent two
minute in studying the controverted
points of theology, and if I live thirty
year longer I will not spend the thou
sandth part of a second in such explora
tion. I know two things, and these I
will devote all the years of my life in
.proclaiming, God will, through Jesus
Christ, pardon sin, and He will comfort
Creeds have their uses, but just now
the church Is creeded to death. The
young men entering the ministry are
going to be launched In the thickest fog
that ever settled on the coast. A I
am told that in all onr services student
of Princeton and Union and Drew and
other theological seminaries are present,
and a these words will come to thou
sand of young men who are soon to
enter the ministry, let me say to such
and through them to their associates,
keep out of the bewildering, belittling,
destroying and angry . controversies
abroad. The questions our doctor of
divinity are trying to settle will not be
settled until the day after the day of
judgment It 1 such a poor economy of
time to spend years and year In trying
to fathom tire unfathomable, when in fir
minute in Heaven we will know all we'
want to know. Wait till we get our
throne. Wait till the light of eternity
flashes upon our newly ascended spirit.
It Is useless for ants on different side
of a mole-hill to try and discuss the
comparative heights f Mount Blana
and Mount Washington. Let me say to
all young men about to enter the min
istry that soon the greatest novelty in
the world will be the unadulterated re
ligion of Jesus Christ Preach that and
you wtylhave a crowd. The world Is
sick to regurgitation with the modern
quacks in religion. The world ha
been swinging off from the old gospel,
but lt will swing back, and by the time
you young men go into the pulpit the
cry will be coming up from all the mil
lion of mankind "Give us the bread of
life; no sweetened bread, no "bread with
sickly raisins stuck here and there into
it but old-fashioned bread as Uod our
Mother mixed lt aud baked itl"
You see, Uod knew as much when He
made the Bible as He knows nowv He
has not learned a single thing in six
thousand years. He knew at the start
that the human race would go wrong
and what would be the best mean of
it restoration and redemption. And the
law which was thundered on Mount
Sinai, from whose top I had the two
tables of stone in yonder wall trans
ported, is the perfect law. And the
Gospel which Christ announced while
dying on that Mount from , which I
brought that stone in yonder wall and
which Paul preached on that hill from
which I brought yonder granite, ia the
Gospel - that ' is going to save the
world. Young man, put on that Gos
pel armor! No other sword will
triumph like that No other shield will
protect like that No other helmet will
glance off the battle-axes like that Our
theological seminaries are doing glori
ous work, but If ever such theological
seminaries ahall cease to prepare young
men for this plain advocacy, and shall
become ' mere (ihilnoophical schools for
guessing about God, and guessing about
the Bible, and guessing about the soul,
they will cease their usefulness, and
young men, as in olden time, when they
would study for the Gospel ministry,
will put themselves under the care of
some intelligent and warm-hearted 'pas
tor, aud kneel with him in family
prayer at the parsonage, and go with
him into the room of the tick and the
dying, and see what victories the grace
of God can gain when the couch of the
dying saint is the Marathon,
That is the way the mighty minister
of the Gospel were made in olden times.
0, for a great wave of revival to roll
over our theological seminaries and our
pulpits and our churches and our ecclesi
astical courts and over all Christendom!
That would be the end of controversy.
While such a deluge would float the
ark of God higher and higher, it would
put all the bears and tigers and reptiles
of raging ecclesiostlclsm fifteen cubit
Now, what is the simple fact that you
in the pew and Sabbath-school class and
reformatory association and we in the
pulpits have to deal with? It is this:
that God has somewhere, and it matters
not where, but somewhere, provided a
great heaven, great for quietness for
those who want quiet great for vast
assemblages for those who like multi
tudes, great for architecture for thoso
who like architecture, great for beauti
ful landscape for those who like land
scapes, great for music for those who
like music, great for processions for
those who like armies of white horses
and great for anything that one es
pecially desires In such a rapturous do
minion, and through the doinga of one
who was born about five miles south of
Jerusalem and died about ten minutes'
walk from it eastern gate, all
may enter that great heaven for
the earnest and hcnrtfelt asking.
Is that all? That 1 alL What then
is your work and mino 1 Our work
is to persuade people to face that
way and start thitherward aud finally
go in. But has not religion something
to do with this world as well as the
next? O, yes: but do you not see that
if the people start for heaven, on their
way there they will do all the good they
can? They will at the very start of the
Journey get so much of the spirit of
Christ which I a spirit of kindness and
self-sacrifice and generosity and burden
bearing nd helpfulness, that every
step they take will resound with good
deeds. O, get your religion off of stilts!
Get it down out of the high towers! Get
lt on a level with the wants and woe
of our poor human race! Get it out of
the dusty thcoloi'loal books that few
people read and put it in their hearts
and Uvea. Oood thing la it to profess
religion when you join the church, but
every day somehow we ought to profess
A peculiar patchwork quilt was, dur
ing the civil war, made by a lady and
tent to the hospital at the front She
had a boy in the army, and was natur
ally Interested in the welfare of soldiers.
But what a patchwork quilt she sent!
On every block of the quilt was a pas
sage of .Scripture or a verse of a hymn.
The month and years of the war went
by. On that quilt many a wounded
man had lain and suffered and died.
But one morning tho hospital nurse saw
a patient under that blanket kissing the
figure of a leaf in the quilt, and the
nurse supposed he was only wandering
in his mind. But no, he was the son of the
mother who had made the quilt and he
recognized that figure of a leaf as part
of a gown his mother used to wear, and
it reminded him of home. "Do you
know where this quilt came from?"
he asked. The nurse ' answered, "I
can find out, for there was
a card pinned fast to it, and I
will find that" Sure enough, it
confirmed what he thought Then
the nurse pointed to a passage of Scrip
ture In the block of the quilt, the pas
sage which says: "When he wa yet a
great way off hi father taw him and
ran and fell on hi neck and kissed
him," "Yes," said the dying soldier,
"I wa a great way off, but God ha
met me and had compassion on me."
"Shall I write to your mother and tell
her that the lost one la found and the
dead ia alive again?" He answered,
"I wish you would, If It would not be
too much trouble." Do yon suppose
that woman who mad that quilt and'
filled it with Scripture passage had
any trouble about who Melchizedek
was, or bow the doctrine of God's sorer-'
elgnty, can be harmonized with man'
free agency, or who wrote the Penta
teuch, or the inconsistencies of the.
Nicene creed? No, no; go to work for'
God and suffering humanity, and all'
your doubt and fears' and my-:
terie and unbelief put together!
will not be heavy enough to stir
the chemist's scales, which ia accus
tomed to weighing one-fiftieth part of a'
grain of chamomile flower. Why atay
a moment to understand the mysteries'
when there are so many certitudes?'
Why spend our time exploring the dark,
garrets and coalhole of a great palace,'
which has above ground one hundred
rooms flooded with sunshine? It takes
all my time to absorb what has been
revealed, so that I have no time to up
turn and root out and drag forth what
ha not yet been revealed. The most of
the effort to solve mysteries and explore
the inexplicable and harmonize things,
is an attempt to help the Lord out of
theological difficulties. Good enough
Intention, my brother, no doubt; but
the Lord is not anxious to have you help
Him. He will keep His throne without
your assistance. Don't be afraid that
the Bible will fall apart from incon
sistencies. It hung together many cen
turies before you were born, and your
funeral will be preached from a text
taken from its undisturbed authenticity.
- Do you know that I think that if all
ministers in all denominations would
top this nonsense of ecclesiastical strife
and take hold of the word of Uod, the
only question with each of as being
how many souls we can bring to Christ
and In how short a time, the Lord
would soon appear for the salvation of
all aations? When the young Queen
of England visited Scotland many years
ago great preparations were made for
her reception. The vessel In which she
tailed was far out at sea, but every hill
In Scotland was illumined with bonfire
and torches. The night wa set on
fire with artificial illumination. The
Queen, standing on the ship's deck,
knew from that that Scotland was full
of the heartiest welcome, and the thun
der of the great guns at Glasgow and
Edinburg Castle woke up all the echoea
Boom! they sounded all over the sea.
Boom! they sounded up among the
hills. Do you know that I think that our
King would land if we were only ready
to receive Him? Why not call to Him
from all our churches, from all our hos
pitals, from all our homes? Why not
all at once light all the torches of Gos
pel Invitation? Why not ring all the
bells of welcome? why not light up
the long night of the world' sin and
suffering with bonfires of victory? Why
not unliinber ' all the gospel bat
teries, and let them boom ' across
the earth, and boom Into the
parting heavens? The King is ready to
land if we are ready, to receive lllm.
Why can not we who are now living see
Hi descent? Must it all be postponed
to later ages? Has not our poor world
groaned long enough in mortal agonies?
Have there not been martyrs enough,
and have not the lakes of tears aud the
rivers of blood been deep enough? Why
can not the final glory roll In
now? Why can not this dying century
feel the incoming tides of the
ocean of heavenly mercy? Must our
eyes close in death and our ear
take on the deafness of the tomb, and
these hearts beat their last throb before
the day eomes in? O, Christ! Why tar
rlest Thou? Wilt Thou not before we
go the way of all the earth, let us see
Thy scarred feet under some noonday
cloud coming this way? Before we die
let us behold Thy hands' that were
spiked, spread out in benediction for a
lost race. And why not let us, with
our mortal ears, hear that voice which
spoke peace as thou didst go up, speak
pardon and emancipation and love and
holiness and joy to all nations as Thou
contest down?
But the sires do not part I hear no
rumbling of chariot wheels coming
down over the sapphire. There i no
swoop of wing. I see no flash of
angello appearance. All is still. I hear
nothing but the tramp of my own heart
as I pause between these utterances.
The King does not land because the
world is not ready and the church ia not
ready. To clear the way for the Lord'
coming let us devote all our energies of
body, mind and soul. A Russian general
riding over the battlefield, his horse
treading amid the dying and dead, a
wounded soldier asked him for water,
but the officer did not understand his
language and knew not what the poor
follow wanted. Then the SDldler cried
out, ."Chrlstos," and that word meant
sympathy and help, and the Russian
officer dismounted and put to the Up of
the sufferer a cooling draught Be that
the charmed word with which we go
forth to do our whole duty. In many lan
guage It ha only a little difference of
termination. Chrlstos! It stand for sym
pathy. It stand ,for help. It aland
for pardon; - It stands for nope. It
stands for heaven. Chrlstos! In that
name we were baptised. In that name
we took our first sacrament. That will
be the battle-shout that will win the
whole world for God.' 'Chrlttoal Put

Are wrought by the use of Ayer's Hair
Vigor In restoring gray hair to Its original
color, promoting a new growth, prevent.
Jig the hair from falling, keeping It soft,
tllky, and abundant, and the scalp cool,
healthy, and free from dandruff or humors.
The universal testimony Is that this prep
aration has no equal as a dressing, and
Is, therefore, indispensable to every well
furnished toilet
"I have used Ayer't Bair Vigor for tome
time and It has worked wonders for me. I
was troubled with dandruff and was rapidly
becoming bald ; but since using the Vigor my
head Is perfectly clear of dandruff, the hair
has ceased earning out, and I now have s
good growth, ot the same color as when I
was a young woman. I can heartily recom
mend any one suffering from dandruff or
loss of hair to use Ayer't Hair Vigor as a
dressing." - Mrs. Lydla 0. Moody. East
Pltutou, Me. '
- "Some time ago my wife's hair began to
come out quite freely.
Hair Vigor
not only prevented my wife from becoming
bald, but It also caused an entirely new
growth of hair. I am ready to certify to this
statement before a justice of the peace."
II. Ilultebus, Lewlsburgh, Iowa.
"Some years sgo, alter s severe attack ot
Drain fever, my hair all came out I used
such preparations lor restoring It as my phy
sicians ordered, but tailed to produce a
growth of hair. I then tried, successively,
several articles recommended by druggists,
and all alike fell short of accomplishing the
desired result. The last remedy I applied
was Ayer's Hair Vigor, which brought a
growth ot hair in a few weeks. I think I
used eight bottles in two years; more than
was necessary as a restorative, but I liked It
as a dressing, and have continued to use it
for that purpose. I believe Ayer's Hair
Vigor possesses virtues tar shore those of
any similar preparation now on the market"
