KING BATING GRASS.
Dr. Taimase Draws a Lesson From the Story of Nebuchadnezzar. For lim Inn H Lived Among the Beasts of th Field, HI Reason De throned Prlda the Precursor of Omthraw-The Most DIS treeelns; Judgments of Qod Followed by . i Displays of Dt- -Via Herey. Dr. Talmage chose ai the subject for hla reoent termon at the " Brooklyn tabernacle the humiliation of the Baby lonish king who, being destitute of re ligion, sank to the level of the brute. Daniel, It., 28: "All this cornea upon the lting Nebuchadnezzar." The. sermon follows: ""' CoL Rawllflson, the Oriental traveler, says that the exhumed brloks, not only of Babylon, but of a hundred towns In an area of one hundred miles in length and thirty in breadth, are inscribed with the name of Nebuchadnezzar. He was a great warrior and at the glance of his sword nations prostrated them selves. Be was a great king and built a city reservoir ninety miles in clroum ference and one hundred and twenty feet deep, and constructed a hanging garden four hundred feet square and seventy-five feet high, some say to please Amuhia, his wife who had been born among the hills, and others say to get a pleasure ground free from mos qultos, which aillict the levels. I think, from bis character, the latter reason mar have impelled him as much as the former. When he conquered the King Zedeklah, so as to have no more trouble with him he put his eyes out a most barbarous way of incapacitating an enemy. But Babylon was a great place, the houses surrounded by gar dens, and the housetops were conneoted With each other by bridges, and one dav Nebuchadnezzar walked out on those suspension bridges and showed, perhaps to a royal visitor, the vastness of his realm as tne.aun .Kinaies.ine domes with glistening almost Insuffer able, and the great street -thunder up their pomp into the ear of the monarch. and armed bowers stand around adorned with Spoils of conquered empires, Neb- QU whUe. uchadnouar waves hia hand above the stupendous scone and exolsfms: "Is not this great Babylon that I have built for the house of the kingdom by the might of my power and for the honor of my majesty? In ether woras. "What a great man I am. Babylon was not anything until I adorned it Bee those waterworks; see thoso gardens; see those forts. 1 did all this. I shall never be fora-ottcn. Why. my name is on everr brick in all those walla Just look at me. I am moro than a man" But, in an instant, all that splendor is ' cone from his vision, for a voice falls from the heavens, saying: "O King Nebuchadnezzar, to thee it is spoken: the kingdom is departed from thee, and they shall drive thee from men and thy dwelling shall be with the beasts of the field; they shall make thee to eat grass as oxen, and seven times shall pass over thee,- until thou know that the Most Ilie-h ruleth in the kingdom of men and giveth it to whomsoever He wilL" One hour from the time he made the boast, he is on his way to the fields a maniac, and rushing into the forests he became as one of the beasts, and is after awhile covered with eagles' feath ers for protection from the cold, and ward whose bounty the orchards, and paddocks, and streams, and "vineyards in all the earth might contribute what an amazement! And yet the scene is as common as the davllghtl ' When I see a man of regal nature mad to rule in realms of thought, ca pable of all moral elevation, besotting his faculties, attempting out of low sen sualities to satisfy his immortal ener gies, eomlng down off his throne of power into brutalities, sacrificing his higher nature to his lower nature, stooping and stooping, eomlng aown and coming down until all his influence for good Is gone, I err out, "There is a king eating grass like an ox!"

A young man ran away from home and broke his widowed mother's heart Fourteen years passed and he returned and came to the window at which hia old mother was sitting. She looked up and immediately recognized him and said: "0. Kobert, Robert! Come in!" "No!" said he, "mother.' I shall never come in till I hear you say you forgive me." Her answer was: "Robert. I have forgiven you long ago. There is nothing to forgive now except that tou staid away so long."

The next thought that presses into my mind from the contemplation 01 this Incident is that conviction is not conversion. Who is this monarch that make the boost about Babylon? The very man who, under the revelation of dreams that Daniel made irom neaven, deeply humbled" himself, while he con' feased that God is a Qod of Gods and i Lord of Lords, yet behold that that humbling and arousing which he before felt did not result in a radical change. There is no mistake more frequent than of supposing conviction a sy nonym for conversion, ixmvlotion s merely sight of sin; conversion is a view of par don. Conviction is merely alarm; con version la confidence. Conviction is dis satisfaction with depravity; conversion is a turning away from it Umvlction l. .word wound: conversion . is the healing.

Airain learn from the misfortune oi the king of Babylon ' what a terrible thlnrf is the loss of reason. There la no calamity that can nossioiy oeiau us m this world so great as the derangement of Intellect to have the body ot a man and tet to fall even below the Instinct nf a brute. In this world of Sad sight, the saddest is tho Idiot's stare. In this world of awful sounds, the most awful Is the maniac's laugh. A vessel on the rocks, when hundreds go down never to 1 rise, and other hundreds drag their mangled and sheering bodies up the wintry beach, is nothing comparea w the foundering of intellects full of vast hopes and attainments and capacltlea Christ's heart went out to those who were epileptic falling Into the fire, or maniacs cutting themselves among the tombs. We are acoustrmed to be more grateful for physical health than for the proper working of our mind. We are apt to taice w ir that the intellect which has served so well will always be faithful We forget that an engine with suon tremendous power, when the whei have such vastness of circle ana suon swiftness of motion and the least im pediment might nut It out of gear, could only . be kopt in proper balance by a divine hand. No 'human power could engineer this train of immortal facul ties. How strange it is that our mem ory, on whose shoulder all the suc cesses and misfortunes and occurrence of a lifetime are placed, should not oftener break down, and that the scales of ludn-ment which have been weigh ing so much ana so long, snouia nn In their adjustment and that fancy. which holds a dangerous wand, should not aometimea maliciously wave U, brinirinir into the heart forebodings and hallucinations the most -appalling. Is it not strange that the expectations of this Intellect should not be dashed to nieces on Its disappointments? Though an dalicatelv attuned, this instrument of untold harmonies plays on, though fear shocks It and vexations rack it and sorrow and joy and loss and gain In ouick succession beat out of it their dirge or draw from It their anthem. At morning "and at night when in your prayer you rehearse the objects of your thanksgiving, next to your salvation by Christ, nratse the Lord for the n reservation of your reason.

There Is nothing like rum to put a man like Neoucnaa nczzar down on all foura Again, lenrn how quickly turns the wheel of fortune, from how high up to how far down went Nebuchadnezzar. Those now In places of position and power, even though they should live, will, in a few years, be disregarded, while so mo, who this day are obscure and poverty-stricken, will ride upon the shonldcrs of the people to take their turn at admiration and the spoils of office O, how quickly the wheel turns! Ballot boxes are the steps on 'which men come down as often as they go op. Of those who wese a few years mrgo successful in the accumulation of property, how few have not met with reverses of . fortune, while many of those who then were straitened in stances now hold the bonds and the bank kevs of the nations and win the most bows on the exchange.

Then come sorrow or gladness, success or defeat riche or poverty, honor or disgrace, health or sickness, life or death, time or eternity, all are yours and ye are Christ's and Christ is Ood" a Learn also from my subject the com forting truth that the afflictions are ar rested as soon as they have accom plished their mission. For seven years did Nebuchadnezzar dwell among the beasts of th fields, but, at the expira tion of that time, his reason returned, and, as soon as with proper humility he acknowledges the Qod of Hoaven, be was brought back to his palace and reinstated in bis former affluence and power. Now, it doe seem that when heavy trials some upon us, it Is as thongh they had no limit" W exclaim; "All Thy waves and Thy billow hav gone over me," but forgotr that the depth of that sea and the power of that billow are definitely deter mined. Qod sees how much our pride la and He send just enough adversity t humble it He sees just how worldly minded we an and pull us just hard tnough to detach np - from our folllea He sees how hard our heart is and smites just hard enough to break it He sees how our eyss have been blinded and be out only just enough to remove the scales from our spiritual vision. A soon as Abraham's faith is sufficiently tried the lamb is provided. As soon a Pharaoh consents to let the children of Israel depart, the plagues pause. As soon as the Israelites have been suffi ciently disciplined by their wan derings, they find their way into Canaan. - But to some the limit is not set in this life Their whole pil grimage is through the wilderness and the world ia to them a valley ot teara But perhaps, God has a special throne In Heaven that no ordinary saint can occupy, and by extraordinary trial he has prepared that Christian soul for ex traordinary glory. Godwlll not keep you , in the furnace one moment too long. ' Just as soon as Paul had met with enongh Imprisonment and scourg ing he reached up and plucked HI eternal crown. Qod will keep na no longer under the hammer and on the stocks than is necessary to fit us for entrance into the haven ot eternal rest Glory be to the Divine grace that as soon as our afflictions have accom plished their mission, they are arrested. The defeats and sorrows ot life have sometimes been the greatest advantage It was because Dante failed as a states man that he gave up politics and wrote hla immortal "Divina Commedia." It was a violent thunderstorm that first set Martin Luther seriously thinking, and the thunder of this world s disaster has started many a reformation. James Y. Simpson went from a surgeon s oper- ,tlng table to experiment and see it he could not find something that wonld alleviate '.human pain, and he keot on until he had discov ered chloroform as an anuesthetlc. and the story of distress has almost al ways been followed by the story oi rescue For many years after Shakes neare's death his work was so little ap preciated that In 1600 there was only one edition oi his works, ana mat vi only three hundred conies in existence, and that edition was nearly ail ourneu In the great London fire. But forty ehrht conies had been sold out of the city, and those forty-eight tjoplos saved Shakespeare for all nations, ana eu time. Your suppression on a smaller scale may last a good while, but for all you are worth you will yet shine out on earth or in Heaven. .Again, learn from my subject that connected with the most distressing iudirments of God there are displays of divine mercy. Qod might justly hav left Nebuchadnezzar in the field, but Infinite compassion brought him back to the nalace No sooner was Eden blasted than a blessing followed on the heels of the curse promising the coming of One who would destroy sin and make the whole world a paradise. The del- descends, but not until Noah yon made them? Look and see. They are east down and cross; tneir monuia are full of cursing and fllthlnsss; they are drunk every week; their children half-olothed, their wives broken-hearted, their homes wretched. That Is what yonr principles have done. Now, I have tried Christ and His religion, ana what ha it done for me? You know well what I used to be. There wa ... a i l A none of you that couia onu eu much, swear so desperately, and fight so masterly. I had no money, and no body would trnst me. My wife wa ill used, I was ill-humored, hateful and hating. What has religion done for me?. Thank Qod, I am not airaia w put it to you. Am I not a happier man than I was? Am I not a better workman and a kinder companion? Would I once have put up with what I now bear fropi you? I could beat any of you as easily now as ver. Why don't I? Do you ever near a foul word from my mouth? Do you catoh me at a publlo house? Has any body a score agalnBt me? uo ana as my neighbors if I am not altered for the better. Qo and ask my wife. Let mv house bear witnesa Ood be praised, here is what Christianity na done for me; there Is what infidelity has done for Henry and George." Out of this andienoe I oonld gather a thousand men and women who could tell you as thrilling a Btory as that as to what re liglon has done for them. Yea, If times of nersecutlon should come as oi oiu, and thev may come, there are a thousand here who would for Christ's sake as cheerfully walk Into the furnace of fire as though It were an arbor oi tnyme and honeysuckle, and face the lions ustliouirh thev wore lambs frisking on the hill sfdo, and wade down Into the deep waters which are to submerge them as happily as ever ot .Nurraganseu Beach they took the surf at a summer bathing. Come up and join those on the way to a palace. V hat an absurd thing for a king to be eating grass. In stead of living on the poor fodder that the world affords come up and sit among the princes of God at tho royal banquet and hear the bands play: "Eat O friends! Drink. O beloved!" Here is a crown: wear it Here is a scepter; sway 1l Here is a throne: mount it This is your hour; improve it uire bud Invited the people Hi to the ark. The destroying angel comes upon Egypt for the smiting of the first-born but left unmolested every house whose door was sprinkled with tho blood of Rcrifice.
