A GIANT'8 BKIOTAD.
Dr. Talniago Draws a Practical Lesson From da ObBour Test. King Og, or Biilxin, and How II tVaa TJnfaKtufl Itv tUm larHiitltiiB l)nu!it nil "II" Mm Two Giants Hint ' Confront Mankind Id 1 1ll-no Days. In his sermon at the Brooklyn tab ernacle, Sunday, Dr. Talmage took for Ms text Deut ill., 11: "Only Off, kin? of Bashan, remained of tlio remnant of giants; behold hit bedstead was a bed stead of Iron; is It not in Rabbath of the children of Amnion? Nine cubits was the length thereof and four cubits the breadth of it" The noted divine spoke as follows: , v The story of giants is mixed with myth. William the Conqueror was said to have been of overtowering altitude, but, when, in after time, his tomb was opened, his bones indicated that he had been physically of only ordinary size. Roland, the hero, was said to have been of astounding stature, but when his sepulcher was examined, his armor was found only largo enough to fit an- ordi nary man. Alexander the Great had helmets and shields of enormous size mode and left among the people whom he had conquered, so as to give the im pression that he was a giant, although' he was rather uiler than over the usual height of a man. But that in other days and lands thero were real giants is au thentic One of the guards of the Duke of Brunswick was eight and a halt feet high. In n, museum la London U the skeleton of Charles Birne.elght fei t four inches in stature. ) ..The Emperor, Maxi min was over eight feet .I'iiny tells of a giant nine feet high, and two other giants nine and a half feet cSo I am not incredulous when J come to my text and find King Oj a giant and the size of his bedstoad, turning the cubits of the text into feet the bedstead of Og, the kinp, must have been about thirtee and' a half feet long. Judging from that the giant who occupied it was probably about eleven feet in stature, or nearly twice the average human size. There was no need of Babbinical writers trying to account for the pres ence of this giunt King Og, as they did, by saying that he came down from the other side of the flood, being tall enough to waJe the waters beside Noah's ark, or that he rode on top of the ark, the passengers inside the ark daily provid ing him with food. There was nothing supernatural about him. He was aim' ply a monster In size. Cyrus and 8olomon slept on beds of gole, and bardanapalns bad 160 bed steads of gold burned up with him, but this bedstead of my text wi of Iron everything sacrificed for strength to hold his excessive avoirdupois, this Alp of bone and flesh. Mo wonder this couch was kept as a curiosity at Bab- bath, and people went from far and near to see it j't M now people go to museums to behold ' the armor of the ancients. j You sny what a fighter this irient King Og, must have been. . No uOuDb 01 II. 1 suppose me size ui aia . , i . . . 1 J the size of his bedstead, and bis stride across the battle-field and the full ' stroke of his arm must have been appal' ' ling. With an armed boat he cornea down to drive back the Israelites, who who are marching on from Egypt to Canaan. We have no particulars of the battle, but I think the Israelites trem bled when they saw this monster of a nan moving down to crush them. Ala for the Israelites! Will their troubles never cease? What can men five and a half foot high do against this warria -of eleven feet, and what can short swords do against a sword whose gleam musthare been like a flash of lightning? The battle of Edrel opened. Moses and his army met the giant and his army. The Lord of Hosts descended into the fight, and the gigantic strides Og had made when advancing into- the battle were more than equaled by the gigan tie strides with which he retreated. Huzza for triumphant Israeli . Sixty fortified cities surrendered to them. A land of Indescribable opulence comes into their possession, and all that is left of the giant king is an iron bedstead. "Nine cubits was the longth thereof, and four cubits the breadth of it" Why did not the Bible give us the size of the giart Instead of the size of the bedstead? Why did it not Indicate that . the man was eleven feet high instead of telling us that his cocah was thirteen and a half feet long? No doubt among other things, it was to teach ns thai you can judge of a nun by his surround ing. Show me a man's associates, show me a man a books, show me a man s home, and I will tell you what he is without your telling me one word about him. Yon can not only tell a man ac cording to the old adage, "by the com pany be keeps," but by the books he reads, by the pictures he admires, by the church be attends, by the places he visits. Moral giants and moral pigmies, intellectual giants and intellectual pig mies, UU physical giants or physical pigmies, may be judged by their sur roundings, That man has been thirty years faithful in attendance upon churches and prayer meetings and Bun-day-schools, and putting himself among intense religious associations. He may have his imperfcotlon. but he Is a very good man.. Great is his religions stat ure. -That other man has been for thirty yeatp among innuences intensely worldlynd ha has shut himself out from all other influences, and his reli gions stature In that of a dwarf. No man ever has lie .-n or can be Independ ent of bis surrounding. aoolaL intel lectual, moral, religion. The Bible In dicates the Ic.igtli of lh.' giant in the length of his bei' stead. Let no man ay: "I will be food," and yet keep evil surroundings., Let no man say: "I will be faithful at u Christian," and yet onsort chiefly- with worldlings. Yon are proposing an everlasting impossi bility. When a man departs this life yon an tell what h us been hit Influence In a community for good by those who mourn . iorhlm and by ho sincere and long-continued are the regrets of his taking oft. There ,iisv be no ""''dp or obsequies ndno proti'iis,!.' L; e, "heoldgj, but ' ' :;;;;ij:i,.J-;j J X yon can toll how H:rh h" was In cense cration, und how liigu in usefulness by how long is his shadow when ho comss to lie down. What is true o( individuals Is true of cities and nations. Sli'uvim the free libnirics anil schools of a citv, and I will tell you the intelligence of the people. Show me its gallery of painting and sculpture, and I will toll you the artistic advancement of its citi zens. Show me its churches, and I will tell you theymoral and religious status of the place. From the fact that Og's bedstead was thirtoen and a half feet long, I conclude that the giant hlrar sclf was about eleven foot high. But let no one by this thought be Induced to surrender to unfavorable environ ments. A man can make His own bed stead. Chantrey and Hugh M iller were born stone masons, but the one became an immortal sculptor and the other a Christian scientist whoso name, will never die. Turner, the painter, in whose pralive John Ruskln expended the greatest genius of his life, was the son of a barber who advertised, "A penny a slir.o." Ur. rrlclonux, one o the greatest tcholnrs of all rinse, earned his way through 'college by tcourlng pots and pons. The late Judge Brad ley worked bis -own way ,up from a charcoal burner to the bench of the su preme court if the United States. Yes, a man can d:cide the size, of his own bedside. ' Notieo ftu'hermore that even giants must rest . Such enormous physical endowment on the part of King Og might suggiS4..the capacity to stride across all fitigue and omit slumber. No. He. re uired an iron bedstead. Giants must rest Not appreciating that fact, tow many of the giants yearly broa't ' down. Oianta In busi ness, giants li art, giants in eloquence, giants in usefulness. They live not out more than hi If their days. . T hey try to escape the oin&ennencos of overwork by a voyage uci'0 the sea or a sail in a summer yacl t, or call oa physicians for relief from Insomnia or restoration of unstrung no :vos or thu arrest of apo plexies, when all they n?ed is what this giant of ray text reported to an iron bedstead. Let no one think because be has great strength of body or mind that he can afford to trifle with his nnusual gifts. The ormmercial world, the liter ary world, the artist. o world, the polit ical world, the religious world, are all the time awa'ce with the crash of fall ing giants. King Og, no doubt had a throne, but the Bible never mentions his throne. King Off, no doubt had crown, but" the Bible never mentions his crown. King Og, no doubt had a scepter, but the Bible docs not mention his scepter. Yet ono o( the largest verses of the Bible Is ta'.cen up in de scribing his bodst-sd. So God all up and down Ihe Bible honors sleep. Adam, with his heal on a pillow -of Edenlo roses, has bis slumber blest by a divine gift of beautiful companion' ship. Jacob, with his bead on a pillow of rock, ha bis sleep glorified with a ladder fille.1 with deiconJlng and as cending an j :1s. Christ, with a pil low made out of the folded up coat of a fisherman, honors slumber in the back part of the storm-tossed boat The only case of accident to sleep mentioaed In the Bible was when Eutychus fell from a window during sermon of Piul, who had preached until midnight but that was nJtsomuch a condemnation of sleep as a censure of long sermons. More sleop Is what the world want. Economize-in everything but sleep. William II. He ward, the re nowned secrutury of slate, in the midst of his overmastering toils longed for the capacity to rst writlug ia his memo randum book: ' "I hare never found but one valuable recipe for having a good night's rest, tod that is to have been restless and uleepless tho night before." When President John Quiney' Adams and the dlitinguished Joslah Quia- cy went to hear Judge Story lec ture on law to his students, and when invited to sit beside the judge and both fell asleop, the judge appropriately pointed to them, and raid to his stu dents: "Behold the evil effects of earlr rising." In Bible times, when people arose at the voice of the bird, they retired at tjie time the bird put his bead und jr his win?. One of our national sins is robbery of . slpep; Wal ter Scott wat so nrzjnt about this duty of slumber that when arriving at a hotel where ihere was no ru.nn to sleep in, except thit in which there was a corpse, Inquired if tho deceased had died of a contagious disease, and when assured he h id not took the other bed In the room i.n:l fell I ito- prufoundest slumber. Those' of s.aall endurance must eortaii.ly require rest if even the giant needs t n iron bedstead. Notice, fin thermore, thut Ood's peo ple on the wry to Canaan need not be surprised it they confront some sort of a giant II td not the Israclitlsh host had trouble t noali already? No! Kcd sea not enough. Water famine not enonh. Lug marches not enough. Opposition lv enemies of ordinary stat ure not enou ti. They must meet Og, the giant of .ho Iron bedstead. "Nina cubits was tiie length thereof and four ublts the bieadth of it" Why not let these Israelites go smoothly into Ca naan without till gigantic opposition? O, they neided to have their courage and faith fuither tested and developed! And blessed tile man. who, in our time, In his march toward the Promised Land does not meet more thun on giant Do not conclude that you are not on the way to Canaan because of this obstacle. As well mlrht the Israelites conclude they were or, the way to the Promised Land because they meet Og, the giant Standing in your way Is some evil pro pensity, soipis social persecution, some business mb fortune, so mo physical dis tress. Not 0 3 of you but meets a giant who would like to hew yon lu twain. Higher than eleven feet this Og darkens the sky, and the rattle of hia buoklur stuns the ear. Unt yon are going tc get the victory, as did the Israelites, In the name of the God of Moses and David and Joshua and Paul, charge on him, and you will leave his carcass in the wilderness. Yon want a battle hontl Take that with which David, the flve-footar, assailed Gollah. the nine footer, when ' that giant cried, with stinging conbempt both in Manner and Intonation: ''Come to me, and I will give thv flesh to the onls of the nlr and to the blasts of tho hold, ana David uiokod up at tho monster of bragg.vlocia' and defiantly replied: Thou comost to mo with a sword and with a spear and with a shield; but I come to thee in tho name of the Lord of hosts, the God o( the armies of iBrael. whom thou hastf deflod. . This day will' tho Lord deliver thee tinto mlue hand, mid I will nraite ttieo ana takethino Jioa:l from theo, tind I will give the carcasses of the host of tho Philistines this day unto tho Owls ot the air ' and to tho wild boasts of the earth thnt all ths earth may know that there is a God in Israel." Then David, with probably three swirls of the sling about ' his hea l, got if, into sufucionfc momentum fid he:;W ; fly till' j tho cranium of the g'ant''brnlco in. and he fell, and l):iv:l ovwi on his carcass, one foot on hUvhoat and the other on his head, nn t that was thn Inst of tho Philistine, Hat, bo sure you (,-etthe right battlo shout and that you utter it with the right spirit or Og will roll over you as easily as at night he rolled Into his iron bedstead, v ; j Brethren, I have made op my mind that we will hava to Bgbt all the way up to tho Promised Land. , 1 nisod to think after a while I would got into a time where it would be smooth and easy, but the time doos not come, and It will never come in this world, liy tne time King Og is used up so that he can not got into hlo iron beditcad, some other slant of opras'.tion looms up to dispute our way. Let ua sto; looking for an easy time, and make It a thirty vears' w:ir. or a sixtv vears war. or a hundred years' war, if we lira so long. Must I be c.rrlod to !he g?;icS On flowery brfls of etise, While others foivrht to win the prize, And d.'eit Tirou-di bloody seas. Do vou know thy name of tho biggest giant that yon can possibly meet ana von. will moot him? lie is not eleven feet high but one hundred icct nign. His bedstead is as long as the continent hia nainols Doubt. His common food ia infidel books mid skeptical lectures, and ministers who do not know whether the Bible is Inspired at all or inspired in spots, and Christians who are more Infldcl than Christians. You will never reach the promised land unless you slay that giant. Kill doubt or doubt will kill you. How to overcome this giant? Pray for faith, go with the people who have faith, read everything that encourngos faith, avoid as you would hip fuvur and smallpox the people who lack f ilth. In this battle against King Og use not for weapons the crutch of a limping Christian or the sharp pen of a controversialist but the sword of the troth, which is the word of God. The word "IP' is made up of the same number of letters as tho word "Og," and It la just as big a giant If the Bible be truo. If the soul bo immortal. If Christ be God. If our belief and behavior here decide our future destiny. If. If. If. I hate that word ' If." Noah Web ster says It is j conjunction; I say it is an armed gi.mt. Sat::n breathed upon it a curse when bo sld to Christ: "If thou bu thu S m of God." What a das tar'Uly and InTamous "if." Against that giant "if" hurl Job's "I : know" and ' rani's "I know.1' "I know that My redeemer liveth."' "I know In whoir 1 hava boliovcd." Down with the if and np with . the "I know." O, that giant Doubt Is such u. cruel giant It attacks many In the lst hour. It could not let ti.r ino her alone even in her dylii'' moments. After a life of holiness snd consecration such as never heard of iu uny oua else, she said to mv fat hoc: 'I'tttticr, what if, after til, our prayers and ttrugglcs should go for nothing " Why touldshe cot, after all the trials and sicknesses and bereavements of a long lifo and the Infirmities of .. b allowed to go without such . cruel stroke from Doubt, the gian l'.' lo j o u T.'oBder I have a grudge against the pld monster? If I could I would dtrt him a bigger bounoe than Satan got when, burled out of heaven, the first thing he struck was the bottom of perdli Ion. , Another impression from my subjocb Tho march of the church cannot be im peded bv gignntfc opposition. That israclitlsh ho v. led tin bv Moses was tho church. n:id when 0. tho giant him of tho iron bedstead, came out against him w'.th n.totVcr host a fresh host n'ulnst o:i'.' tlmt seemed worn out things mnst have looked 'bud for Israel.

Not sixty cities captured but all the cities. Not only on ono sido of Jor dan, but on both sides of all the rivers. The day is coining. . Hear it all ye who are doing something for the conquest ol the world for God and the truth, the time will come when, as there wns noth ing left of Og, the giant but the iron bedstead kept nt Rabbath as a curios ity, there' will bo nothing left of the giants ot iniquity except something for the relic hunWsto examlue. Which of the giants will be the last slain I know not but thore will be a museum somewhere to hold the relics of what they once were. A rusted sword will be hung up the only relio ot the giant of war. A demijohn the only relio of the giant 'of Inebriation. A roulette ball the only relloo f the giant of hazard. A pictured certificate of watered stock the only relio of the giant of took gambling. A broken knife tha only relic of the plant of assassination. A yellow copy ot Tom Paine, tha only relio of the giant of unbelief. - And that museum will do for the later ages of the world what the iron bedstead at Babbath did for the earlier ages. Do you not see it makes all the differenco 4a the world whether we are fighting on toward a miserable defeat or to ward a final victory? All tho Bible L promises prophesy the latter, and so I cheer you who are' the troops pf God, and though many things are dark now, like Alexander, I re view the army by torchlight, and I give you the watchword which Martin Luther proclaimed: "The Lord of Hosts!'' "Tho Lord of Hosts'." and I cry out exnltingly, with Oliver Cromwell at the battle of Dunbar: "Let God arise; let His cnemi h be scattered."

V MODERN FANS. a Dimoult. Uti04tnd Wall Tafd Art in , Home uf Its Untuebet. . Most of the fl nee fans sold in this country are made in Paris and in three or four suburban villages near by. No fan maker knows the whole art. AH the workers ia one vlllaire make sticks; those of another fold; t hose In a third aupply the bows that hold the sticks tog-ether. The making of tho upper sticks Is a trade by Itself. After all the parts have been made they are sent to the great factories in Taris to be put ' to gether. A fanmaker begins his ap prenticeship in chiMhnoL The tools are few and simole. Most of the carv ing and tlllirree work bi made with chisel or scroll saw. Tho -attern, traced on paper, is pasted on the piece of bone or Ivory or wood from which the fan stick is to be made and the filitfroe is rapidly cut with a saw. Tortoise shell sticks are made by special workers In shells.
