IN THE LION'S DEN.
Rev. Dr. Talmage Draws a LeBaon From the Story of Daniel. Religion nnd Grit the Two Thing JVeeil- ful With Which to Fight the Hattles of Life The Way to Future 8uo- . cess Is Through Present . Self Denial. In a recent discourse at the Brooklyn tabernacle Rev. Dr. Talmage took for his subject the character of Daniel and drew from it lessons of sound practical value for young men. His text was, Daniel vL, 2: "Daniel was first" Fol lowing is the sermon: Where in romance can you find any thing equal to what Daniel was in real ity? A young man, far away from home, introduced into the most magnificent and most dissolute palace of all the earth. The king, wishing to make this young man a1 prodigy in personal ap pearance, orders his attendants to see that he has plenty of meat and wine, and Daniel refuses these delicacies and insists on a vegetable diet, refusing everything hut pulse and water, waving back all the rich viands with a deter mined, "No; I thank you." He B"r passes all the princes in brilliancy. As this sun rises higher and higher in the firmament, it puts out all the stars, and if there is anything the stars hate it is the sun. Daniel becomes so much of a favorite with King Darius that our young hero is promoted to bo prime minister or secretary of state the Fre- linghuysen or the Bismarck of the an cients. But no man ever attained such high position without exciting the envy of others. The meanest and wrathiest passion of the soul is jealousy. You see it among all professions and occupa tions. I am sorry to say you see it as much among clergymen as among other classes of men. It is a passion bitter as hell, and it is immediately recognized, and yet, though it blackens the man who indulges in It, men will kindle thi fire which con sumes only themselves. There were demagogues in Babylon, who, highly appreciative of their own capacity, doubted the policy of elevating such a young man as Daniel. They said "Why, we know more than he does. We could manage the public affairs bet ter than he can manage them. the idea of putting Dan in such a place as that." Old Babylon was afraid of young Babylon. They began to plot his ruin. He was an Illustrious target. The taller the cedar the more opt to be struck with the lightning. These dem- agogues asked Durius to make an until terable decree that any man who with in thirty days shall susk a petition of any one except the king shall be put to death. Darius, not mistrusting any foul play, makes such a decree. The dema' (rogues, having accomplished their pur pose, for they knew that Daniel would not stop sending up petitions to his Uod, and Daniel, Instead of being affrighted by the decree, went, three times a day to his house-top for prayer. He caught in the act He is condemned to be devoured by the lions. . 8uch healthy young man will be for the leonine monarcha the best banquet they ever had. By the rough exeeu. tionera of the law he is hurried awuy toward the den. I hear the growl of the monsters, and their pawing of the dust, and as their mouth is placed tothi ground the solid earth quakes with their bellow. The door is removed an Daniel shoved into the den, whi wm all agleain with liery eye ball that seem to roll in the caverns. They the defenseless man. .Their- ap petite was sharp with hunger. O.ie stroke of their paw, one crunch of their teeth and he would have been lifel.. How strange a welcome Daniel re.-eiv?. from the monsters. Thy fawn :;l.r.ii him. They cover his feet with t!iel: long mane. They are htnu-k with tlie lockjaw. That night Df-niel's sleep is calm and undisturled. with his head pillowed on the warm neck ( t'.ie tamed lions. But Kintr Darius wm in it so happy. He loved Daniel ami ho hated the stratagem by which his favor ite had lieen condemned. Ilepiv .vs his floor all night He eann .t Mce;. At the least sound he starts and his ilesh creeps with horror. A bod enns -it-nce will make the bravest man a onward. He watches eagerly for the dawn, which seems so long in tarrying. At the first streak of light, he starts out lo ilnd the fate of Daniel. The pa'u a g i'.e opens and jars heavily behin.1 him while yet the city is asleep, lie com1" t' ttie den. lie looks through the cr.-vi-e but sees nothing. Hedtire nut stx'ni-:. K.vpcctitig the worst, his heart rp. (iathering strength he puts his in iv.'.'i t tV rifts In th rock rt:id c.r'u'v "0, Diiuiel, is thy Ord vho;n thou mt; continually nine tideiiv T the fr v.-t th-1 lions?" An answer w :m rolling up out of the deep darkness: '(), king, Hvo forever. My Uotl hath sent His nnret and hath shut the lions' mouths, an;l they have not hut Hie." The young m.ui is brought out and the demagogues who made the plot art thrown In. But they hardly struck the bottom of the den when their flesh rent and their bones cracked, and the blood spurted through the rifts, while the fierce monsters shook the rocks with their terrible roar, announc ing to all ages the truth that while Ood defends His people, the way of the wicked shall perish. Now, you see from this subject in the eyes of many the greatest offense you can commit Is success. Of what crime had this young mon been guilty, that he should come under the bitter hatred of the demagogues? Why, he had got to be prime minister of Babylon. That they could not forgive. Behold In this ketch a touch of human nature. As long as poverty pinches you and you run the gauntlet between tax gath erer and landlord, and you have hard work to educate your children, there will be multitude of men to say: "Poor fellow. He ought to succeed. How sorry I am for him." But, after awhile, you begin to emerge from tha darkness. That was a capital Investment You purchased at just tha fight time. For tune liccumu good-aalurc.1 and smiled. Youb.iildedyjurown hou.;o. Youg.it io be one of the first men on the street Now, as you pass, a number of those late sympathizers stand on the corner of the street They scowl at you from under the rim of their hat. You have more money now than they have and you ought to bo scowled at from under the rim of their hats. Before you get fully past you hear a word or two: "Stuck up," says one. Didn't get it honestly," says another. Will burst soon." says a third. Every stone in your new house was laid on their heart Your horses' hoots weni over their nerves. Your carriage tire cut their neck. What have you done, outrageous culprit? You ought to bo cast to the lions. You have dared to achieve success. Depend upon It that If in any one respect you rise far above your fellows if you are more truthful, more wise, more eloquent, more Influ entialthe shadow of your success will ehill somebody. The road of honor and virtue is within reach of the enemy's guns. Jealousy says: "Stay down, or will knock you down." In midair a snowfluke suid to asnowbird: "I don't like you." "Why don't you like me?" said the snowbird. "Because," stiid the snowflakc, "you are going up and I am coming down." Success is often a syn onym for scorn. The first thing a man wants Is religion. The second is grit If you do not want to face wild beasts you must never get to be prime minis ter. If you are now, as a young man, rising in any ono respect I bless Uotl for your advancement but I wish to say before I quit this thought, look out for the lions. Young merchants, young lawyers, young physicians, young min isters have much sympathy, ana itiua advice is given them at first, but as you become your own masters and begin to succeed in your dilferent occupations and professions, how is it then, yout? merchants, young lawyers, young phy sicians, young ministers? How is it then? Again, UeliolU in our sui.ject i:n i-xm-bition of true decision of character. Be fore Daniel were condemnation und death, if he continued faithful to his re ligion. Yet just as before, three times a day he prayed with his face toward Jerusalem. There is nothing more fatal for the religious or worldly advance ment than a spirit of indecision. How often youth has almost gone before the Individual has determined upon his pro fession. There are those who for thirty or forty years have accomplished noth ing anywhere because they have not lull, themselves settled. They have thought of law, of medicine, of merchandise, of mechanism. They have some idea trfgo injr west Perhaps they will go east Perhaps they wont Ihey m'iy go n irth or south. Perhaps they will invest their money in railroads or in real estate. Perhaps they won't Tht-y are like a vessel starting from New York harbor, which should one day tlecido on going to Liverpool and the next on New Orleans, and the next on Marseilles. How many men have for a long while been out on the great sea of life and they do not know to what port they are destined? It la an everlasting tacking of ship, but no headway. The man who begin to build a house In the Corinthian style and when half way up conclude to make it Doric, and then completes it in Ionic, will have an unseemly pile and be cursed of every school of archi tecture. These men that try everything get to bj nothing. Uod wrote in your brain and engraved on your bones what you ought to be. Then be that nothing more or nothing less. In that direction la your success. Every other road Is ruin. Having adjusted your com ahead. Set vour teeth together. and snap s difficulties do not notice. Great approach difflcultiea. br Ood' grace strike them down. Onward! Let coward skulk. Act you like son of Uotl. If you want lo sail to the land of gold you must double the capo. To usefulness and strong character there is no over Und route. Over the great deeps you must fly. Most of the way it is either head wind or tempest Character, like the troldfinchof Tonnuin, Is magnificent when standing firm, but loses all its splendor In flight There Is no snch thlnir as failure to those who trust In Uod. Paul got to be an Apostle by full Ing off his horse. Stephen was stoned into Heaven. When a young man re solves on a religious life.hu dues not always find it smooth sailing. Old com panlon laugh and suy with sarcastic tone: "He has got to be pious." They iro on excursions, but do not ask him, They prophesy that hi religion will not hold out They call him "long-laced, They wonder if ho is not getting wings. They say sharp things about him for themselves to laugn au v nen ne passes they grimace and wink and chuckle. and say loud enough to bo heard: "There goe a aalnt" If you have never seen life. as it is, you know not what strength of resolution it often re quires for a young man to be a Christian. Air ain. let this story oi uanlci teach tis that tins way to future success is through present self-denial. Not only did Daniel show hU willingness for self restraint by refusing the luxuries of the king's table, but must have denied himself much social enjoyment and sight-seeing in order to have attained most wonderful proficiency in aturty, The? rush of the chariots under his win' dow, and the sound of mirth that rung out on the air of Babylon, would have attracted most young men into the streets and to expensivo places of amusement But Daniel knew that it was only through severity of applica tion he could attain the honorable po sition for which he was intended. In Iced, you muy carry this truth Into unl vernal application. Tho most of those who have succeeded in any pro fession or occupation have come from the very bottom of the ladder. The brightest day began with the twilight The admiral who com manded the navies of the world started as cabin boy. The merchant prince whose messengers are ship and, whose servants the nation' custom houses, onoe swept the store and kindled the fires. The orator who lift up the gate of tho soul, as Sampson carried off the gate of Oaza, once itammered and blushed on the stage of a country. tchoolhouse. The young painter, un der whose pencil skies blossom and waters gleam, understands his subject so well because he has but little to shel ter him from the ono and is obliged to find his only beverage in tho other. Out of the dark, deep mines of wantand suffering has been dug tho marble for the world's greatest temples of wisdom and palaces of power. Vantlorlyn, tho artist, must first content him self with a charcoal sketch. l-rank- lin, before becoming .the renowned philosopher, must bo a journeyman printer. Columbus must weave carpets before he can weave hemis pheres. David must take care of his fa ther's sheep bofore he rules Israel. Amos must be a herdsman before he be comes a prophet Daniel must be the humblest student before he rises to be tho prime minister of Babylon.. If a young man starts in life with large no tions of what he must immediately have, willing to consider no economy, but ex pecting with a small shi p to unfurl as much sail as an ocean frigate, he will find himself capsized by the first north easter. It is the small sprig that you can carry In ono hand wh Ich will thrive bsut when planted. But If, by levers and huge lumber wagon, you bring down from the mountain a century oak, though you may plunt it, you can not make it live. So ho who begins life on suuh a Brand scale and w 1th such exorbitant notions, will nevor succeed, while some young man who went to town without means, but having a right spirit, through his self-denial, planted a tree which has reached above Wall street and tiling Its shadow In one direction over the gvanita palaces on the avenue and in the other far out over the mer chant vessels anchored in the bay. Men say success in life is all a matter of orood luek.but Industry and economy and I self-denial nut together make good luck. I here aru young men wno iuneu mice and are getting notes shaved the third time before they are as old as their fa ther when ha first began business for himm-lf. Thev started with the idea that th cir wit would do as well as capi tal. For a while It did, but when cred- Hors sent their dun and banks their protests, they found that mere shrewd ness was greatly below par. xou not cross the ocean in a yawl A you ng eaglet tar up in the mountain eyrie, says to its winged mother. "I will lly no longer from tree to tree as you WU me, but like you, mother, I will swing from this Chlmborazo peak to yonder Chlmborazo peak." Like an arrow It shot into ine neavens, uui when over tho awful chasm it head a dizzy and lU wing weak, and It began to whirl downward, and wltn wild scream, until It struck: on ine rocks. A traveler passing through the gorge saw the mangled remains of the eaglet "How can you have this fall?" said the traveler. "Ah, me," says the eaglet "it was because I would not fly from tree to tree until i was urn enough, but headstrong, I started from Chlmborazo peak toward Chlmborazo tieak." If vounir men would seize th advantage of intelligence, it will be by great economy of time and the refusing of many form or. grawn cation. Show me a man who, refusing many of tho frivolltle of gossiping youths, can see more to attract hi at tention in the page of a treatise or a history, than in the flash of bright eyes. or the airy step of those who find more skill in their heels than in their neads, and I will show you a man who will yet master languages and sway a very sccnter over his fellows. Many an edu cation whlcnisnow considered complete Is mnde up of a smattering of newspa pers and the last page of a fashion mag azine. The parlor and the drawing- room cannot educate us. They may give us outward adornment of manner, but getting valuable knowledge is like sweltering at a forge, bellow in one hand and hammer in tho other like digging In mines with crowbars, prying under the ledge and the constant bang of blasted rock. Especially Is It true that no growth in grace is possible unless, like Daniel, we are willing to take up the cross, however heavy is may be and rough with nails. Moses chose afflic tion with tho people of Uod rather than tho pleasure of ' in, and if we would be anything like hlra, we must be willing sometime to choose the hard bread of self-denial rather than tho Im perial cluster from royal vineyards. To get strength and depth enough In river for turning mill wheels and manufac tories, dams are built across them, and then through the mill race the quick floods leap on tho water-wheel to turn It with tremendous power. So natures that would otherwise have been power less and insufficient by self-restraints have been -dammed back .and deep ened until, with concentrated power, they rush Into the world, turning- Its ponderous machinery of important in terests. Unrestrained men may have much good in them, but It to so scat tered that you see no positive effect Electricity In the air does not strike, but gathered In the red cloud with Its bare red arm It cleave the mountain. Pas sions harnessed and yoked make excel lent beasts of burden. However at tractive may be the sinful offers of the world, though rich and luxurious as the provisions of the king's table, we must be willing to refuse them, if nothing be left us but plain pulse, O, how we want the faith and courage of a Daniel and a Paul, but how we dread the hot atmosphere of trial In which their graces ripened. Tho richest fruits of religion irrow In the sultry troplos of trial. If you want pearls, youimustdive for them, If you want gold you must dig for It The richest part of California and Aus tralia are under ground. Depend upon it If no pruning, no fruit; no climbing, no elevation: no battle, no victory; no cross, no crown. Had there been no Nebuchadnezzar there would have been no Daniel. Even so It ha been in all ages. The flames that have flashed up from the stake have been so many illuminations of Christian tri umph. When God would make a great light of truth and holiness in the world, often takes great persecutions and with them strikes fire. The devil's hate is God's glory. Had it not been for tho persecution of Emperor Valerian, th world would not have known of the courage of a Cyprian, and if the tyran nv of Diocletian had never been known the triumphant grace would not have a; I been seen which made Maximilian, when sentenced to death, exclaim: 'God be praised I" Had not the bandits of Piedmont pursued the Waldenses through the valleys of the Alps, and the infuriate decree put to massacre the Al blgonses of France, the world would have had fewer illustrations of Christian hero ism. Be Joseph before Pharaoh. Be Paul bofore Felix. Be Daniel before Darius. Again let the story of Daniel teach us the beauty of that youthful character which remain unblemished and up right when away from home. Had Daniel, on arriving in Babylon, plunged into every excess, his friends In Jeru salem would never have heard of it His dissipation and renunciation of re ligion would not have cast one sorrow on the family hearth where he had lived ; or the old family Bible which he used 1 to read. But though far away from I home, ho knew that God's eye watched him and that was enough. It Is not every young man who maintains the same character when absent that was main tained at home. Frederick watching his father's sheep among the hills or threshing rye in the barn Is far differ ent from Frederick on the stock ex change. How often does tho kind re tiring spirit become bold effrontery, and the accom modating, self-sacrificing disposition once exhibited among brothers and sisters, become a cold and unresponsive selfishness, and economy, wastefulness, and open-handed, charity, tight-fisted stinginess, and the keep ing of good hour is changed into mid night revelry. I probably address young men now, distant from their father's house, nnd others who, still under the ' ... 1 - M 1 ..,.1. tttnn when they will depart alone to conflict with the world and among strangers be called to build up characters for them selves. Happy for you, oh, young man, if you shall, like Joseph, be. the same when living with wicked Pharaoh as with pious Jacob, or Daniel as pure in Babylon as In Jorusalcm. There is no passage In a man's life of more thrilling interest than the day in which he leaves home and goes off to seek , his fortune. The novelty and romance connected with the departure may keep the young man from tiny poignant sorrow, but parents who have seen tho destruction among strangers of those who were considered promis ing youths, cannot help feeling that this step is full of momentous impor tance. Before the youth left home all his conduct was under affectionate guardianship. Outbursts of folly, care lessness, and impropriety of manner, and looseness of speech, were kindly re proved and although the restraint seemed sometimes too severe, yet hours of sober reflection have convinced him that It was salutary and righteous. Hut behold, how the scene changes. The father, through the interceding of metropolitan friends, has secured the son a plBco in some bank or store or office. Schoolmates on the night before his departure come to take their farewell of tho young adven turer. That morning he takes a last walk around the old place, and going post somo loved spot a sly tear i.uiy start but no one sees it Tho trui.k is on the carriage, and after a warm good bye, away they sped over th hil'.s. S. t down amid excitements and among companion not over scrupulous as to their words or deeds, temptations wwip amnnd the stranger. The morning comes, but no family altar, and the Sab bath, and 'jo real quite, and pcrnaps at the sanctuary the faces are all strange and no one cares whether he goes to church or whether he does not go. Long winter evenings arrive, and how shall they be pent? on ni way home from his placo of business he saw flaming placards announc ing rare nerformancea that tills was positively the last night At the door of his cheerless boarding house, no one greets him, and the evening meal is insipid, for no one care whether he eat or does not eat The room In the third story that evening seems doleful and repelling. A book snatched np from the stand proves to be d nil, for no sister Is there to look over with him. In despair he rusnes out, reckless as to where ho goes If he can see something that will make him stop thinking. T hat night may be the turn ing point In his history. Once within the fatal circle of sin, nnd the soul has no nower to repel it On that dark ses ho Is launched, where the gleam of Joy Is only the flash of the pit and the roar of laughter Is only the creaking of the gates of the lost In inanv a country cnurcn vara is now the grave of somo youthful spirit that Wfnt awav lithe anil bounding-, but came home diseased and crushed and blasted to disgrace the sepnloher of his futhers. Yet this exodus must be made. As from the distant hills, river find th -lr wav through tunnels to great cities, so from far distant point of the country It Is necessary that a stream oi uneorruoted population shall pour into our great thoroughfares to keep them nure and mansgo the traffic of the world. Multitude of uuh are constantly making their do nartnra from home. To-morrow mornlmrallof the thoroughfare lead- tntr toward the treat cltle oi our iana, on teamboat and rail-car there will be young adventurer for the first time nMrih w&v irora tneir nomna iu order to try their fortune in town. The Lord stretch forth hi arm for the deliverance of theso Daniel away down In Babylon. Wherever your lot may be cast In far Inland town or In tome trrnat aeanortr-malntaln in your ab sence the same principles of morals and rellirlon which may have been Instilled by a parental solicitude. And while vou may feel in your heart and life the advantages of early religious culture, forget not those to whom you are chiefly indebted, and pray that a ago comes upon them and the night of death beirlns to fall on tneir patnway, the hone of Heaven may beam through the darkness, lustrous and steady as the evening star. The Lord forbid that by our eouduct we should ever bring dls graco on a father's name or prove reo reant to the love of a mother.
