It is the New Testament of the fields. But my text leads us into another realm of the botanfeal kingdom. ' Eavlntr spoken to you in a oourse of sermons about God everywhere; on the astronomy of the Bible, or God among the stars; the ornithology of the Bible, or God among the birds: the ichthyol ogy of the Bible, or God among the fishes; the mineralogy of the Bible, or God among the amethysts; the conch- ology of the Bible, or God Among the Shells; the chronology of the Bible, or God among the centuries, I spoak now to yon about the botany of the Bible, or God in the gardens of the sea: Al though I purposely take this morning for consideration the least observed and least appreciated of all the botani cal products of the world, we shall find the contemplation very absorbing. In all our theological seminaries, where we make ministers, there ought to be professors to give lessons in natural history. Fhysical science ought to be taught side by side with revelation. It Is the same God who inspires the page of the natural world as the pago of the Scriptural world. What a fresh ening up it would be to our sermons to press into them even a fragment of Mediterranean sea weed. We should have fewer sermons awfully dry if we imitated our blessed Lord, and in our discourses, like Him, we would lot a lily bloom, or a crow fly, or a hen brood her chickens, or a orystal of salt flush out the preservative qualities of religion. The trouble is that in many of our theological seminaries wen who are so dry themselves they never could get people to come and hoar them preach, are now trying to teaoh young men how to preach, and the studont is put between two great presses of dog matic theology and squeezed until there is no life left In him. Give the poor victim at least one losson on the botany of tho Bible. That was an awful plunge that the recreant prophet Jonah made when dropped over tho gunwales of the Meditteranean ship he sank many fathoms down Into a tempebtuous sea.

HOOD'S CURES tation around him. Some of this sea' weed was anchored to tho bottom of the watery abysm and some of it was afloat and swallowed by the groat sea monster, so that, while tlie prophet was at the bottom of tho deep after ho was horribly lmprlsonod, and he could exclaim and did exclaim in the words of my text: "The weeds were wrapped about my head." Jonah was the Hint to record that thoro are growths upon the bottom of the sea, as woll as upon land. The first picture I ever owned was a handful of sea-weed pressed on a page, and I callod thorn "The Shorn Locks of Neptune." These products of the deep, whether brown or green: or yellow or purple, or red or lntershot ol many colors, are most fascinating, They are distributed all over the depths, and from Arctlo to Antarctic That God thinks well of them I eon elude from the fact that Ho has made six thousand species of them. Some times these water-plants are four hun dred or seven hundred feet long, and they cable the sea. One specimen has a rrowth of fifteen hundred feet On the northwest shore of our oountry a seaweed with leaves thirty or forty feet long, amid which the sea-otter makes his home,, resting himself oa the buoyaney of the leaf and stem. The thickest jungles of the tropics are not more full of vogetation than the depths of the sea. There are forests down there and vast pralrlel all bloom, and God walks there as he walked in the Garden of Eden 'In the oool of the day." 0, what entranee ment, this sub-aqueous worldl 0, the God-given wonders of the sea weed! Its birthplace is a palace of crystal The eradle that rooks it is the storm. Its grave la a sareophagus of beryl and sapphire. There is no night down there. There are creature of God oa the bottom of th sea so oonstructod that, strewn all along, they make s firmament besprent with stars, eon atellatlons and galaxies of imposing lustre. Th seafeather la a lamplight er. Th gymnotua ia an elaotrlclan, and he la suroharged with electricity, and makes th dp bright with the lightning of the sea. r The gorgona flash Ilk Jewels. There are as amsaonss ablaa with light There 1 th star lab. and the, moon fish, so Jld because they so powerfully ng gest stellar and lunar illumination. 01 these midnight lantern of the eoeaa yarns; the prgesastnn trt flam Over th wait floor of th dep the Ulu mlaationa tore miles down under the aeat the gorgeously upholstered -Mm of th Almighty la th under world The author of th text salt the fore they had reached the bottom, they had garlands about their brow. In more elaborate and adorned place than we could have afforded them, they were put away for the last slumber. Hear it mothers and fathers of sailor boys, whose ship went down in our last August hurricane! There are no Green woods or Laurel Hills or Mount Au burns so beautiful on land, as there are banked and terraced and scooped and hung in the depths of the sea. The bodies of our foundered and sunken friends are girdled and canopied and housed with such glories as attend no other Necropolis. They were swamped in lifeboats, or they struck on Goodwin Sands or Deal Beach or the Skerries, and were never heard of, or disappeared with the City of Boston, or the Vllle do Havre or the Cymbria, or were run down in a flsh ine smack that nut out from New foundland. Hut dismiss your previous gloom about the horrors of ocean en tombment 1 When Scbastopool was besieged In the Anglo-French war, Prince Mentsch- koff.coinmanding the Russian navy.saw that the onlv way to keep the English out of the harbor was to sink all of the Russian ships of war In the road stead, and so one hundred vessels sank. When, after the war was over, our American engineer, Gowan, descended to the depths in a diving-bell, it was an impressive spectacle. One hundred buried ships! But it is nearly that way all across the Atlantlo Ocean, Ships sunk not by command of ad mirals, but by the command of cy clones. But they all had sublime burial, and tho surroundings amid which they sleep the lost sleep are more imposing than the Taj Mahal, the mausoleum with walls encrusted with precious stones, and built by the great Mogul of India over his empress. Your departed ones were burled in the gar dens of the sea, fenced off by hedges of coral ine. The greatest obsequies ever known on the land were those of Moses, where no one but God was present The sub lime report of that entombment is in tho book of Deuteronomy, which says that the Lord burled him, and of those who have gono down to slumber in the deep, tho same may be said "The Lord buried thorn." As Christ was burled in a garden, so your shipwrecked friends, and those who could not sur vive till thoy reached port were put down amid irridosconce "In the midst of tho gurdun there was a sepulcher.' It has always been a mystery what was tho particular mode by which Ueorgo G. Cookman, the pulpit orator of the Methodist ehurch, and the chaplain of the American congress, left this life after embarking for England on tho steamship President Mnrch 11, 1841. That ship never arrived in port No ono ever signaled her, and on both sides of the ocean It has for fifty years been questioned what became of her. But this I know about Cookman, that whether It was an Iceberg, or confla gration mld-sea, or collision, he had more garlands on his ocean tomb than if, expiring on land, each of his million friends had put a bouquet on his cas ket In the midst of tho garden was his sepulcher. But that brings me to notice the mis nomer in this Jonahitio expression of the text Tho prophet not only mado a mistake by trying to go to Tarshlsh when God told htm to go to Nlnevoh, but ho made a mistake when he styled as weeds these growths that enwrapped him on the day he sank. A weed Is something that Is useless. It Is some thing you throw out from the garden. It Is somothing to be grubbed out from among tho cotton. It Is something un slirhtlv to the eye. It is an Invader of the vegetable or floral world. But this growth that sprang up from the depths of the Mediterranean, or floated on its surface, was among the most beautiful thlnirs that God ever makes. It was a water plant known as the red -colored Alira. and no weed at alt It comes from the loom of Infinite beauty. It la planted by heavenly love. It Is the star of a sunken firmament It is a lamp which the Lord kindled. It Is a cord by which to bind whole sheaves of practl cal suggestion. It Is a poem all whose eantos are rang by divine goodness. Tet we all make the mistake that Jonatt made In regard to It and call It a weed. "Th weeds were wrapped about my head." Ah! that la the trouble on the land as on the sea. Weoall those weeds that are flower. . Pltohad up on th 1each of society are children without home, without opportunity for any thing but sin, seemingly without God, They are washed up helpless, They are called rag emufttn. They are po ken of a th raklnga of the world. They are waifs. They are street Arabs. Theyar flotsam and jetsam of the aoolal sea. They are something to Ve left alone, or something to tread on, or something to give up to decay. Nothing but weeda They are up the riokety stair of that garret Thy ar flown In the eellar of that tenement house. They swelter in summer when they see not one blade ox green grass, and shiver la wintsrs mat auow us not one warm eoat or shawl or shoe. Baoh the slty missionary found In one of our city rookeries, and ' when the poor woman was asked If aent her ehlldrea to school, she re plied: No, str, I never did send 'tm to ohoot I know Ik they ought to warm, tnt.. I oouldn'V , I try to 'sham lla sometimes (It Is my husband, sir), but h drinks and then beats me. (Look at that bruise on my face), and I tell htm to see what is com in' to his chil dren. There's Peggy, goes sellin' fruit every night in those cellars in Water street, and they're hells, sir. She' learning all sorts of bad words there, and don't get back till 19 o'olock at night If it wasn't for her earnln' a shillin' or two in their places, I should tarve. 0, 1 wish they was out of the city. Yes, it Is the truth; I would rather have all my children dead than on the street but I can't help it" Another one of those poorwomen,found by a reformatory association, recited her story of want and woe, and looked up and said: "I felt so hard to lose the children when they died, but now I'm glad they're gone." Ask any one of a thousand such children on the streets: "Where do you llvo?" and they will answert "I don't live nowhere." They will sleep to-night In ash barrels, or under outdoor stairs, or on the wharf, kicked and bruised and hungry. Who cares for them? Once In awhile a city missionary or a tract distributer or a teacher of ragged schools will rescue one of them, but for most people they are only weeds. xet Jonah did not more completely misrepresent the Red Algse about his head in the Mediterranean than most people misjudge these poor and for lorn and dying children of the street They are not weeds. They are im mortal flowers. Down in the deep sea of woe, but flowers. When society and the church of God came to appreciate their eternal value, there will be more C. L. Braces and more Van Meters, and more angels of mercy spending their fortunes and their lives in the rescue. Hear it, 0, ye philanthropic and Chris tian and merciful souls; not weeds, but flowers. I adjure you as the friends of all newsboys lodging houses,, of all industrial schools, of all homes for friendless girls, and for the many reformatories and humane associations now on foot How much they have al ready accomplished. Out of what wretchedness, Into what good homes. Of 81,000 of these picked up out of the streets and sent Into country homes, only twelve children turned out badly. In the last thirty years a number that no man can number of the vagrants have been lifted into respectability and usefulness and a Christian life. Many of them have homes of their own. Though ragged boys onee and atreet girls, now at the head of prosper ous families, honored on earth and to be srlorlous In Heaven. Some of them have been governors of states. Some of them are ministers of the gospel. In all de partments of llfo those who were thrfufht to bo weeds have turned out to be flowers. One of those rescued lads from tho streets of our cltios wrote to another, saying: "I have heard you are studying for the ministry; so am L" My hearers, I implead you for the newsboys of the streets, many of them the brightest children of the city, but no chunco. Do not step on thotr Dare feet Do not when they steal a ride, cut behind. When the papur is three cents once In a whllo give thom a flvo cent piece, and tell them to keep the change. I llko the ring of the letter the newsboy sent back from Indiana, where he had been sunt to a good home, to a New York newsboys' lodging house: "Boys, we should show our selves that we are no fxls, that we oan become as respectable as any of the countrymen, for Franklin and Webster and Clay were poor boys once, ana even Gcorire Law and Vandcrbilt and Astor. And now, boys, stand up and let tnem see you have got tho real stuff in you Come out here and mako respectable and honorable men, so they can say: "There, that boy wos once a news boy." My hearers, join the Chris tian philanthropists who are changing organ-grinders and bootblacks and newsboys and street aruiis ana cigar girls Into those who shall be kings and aueens unto God forever. It is high time that Jonah finds out that that which is about him is aot weuds but flnwMra. As I examine this lied Alga wnicn was about the recreant prophet down In tho Mediterranean depths, when, In thewords-of my text he cried out: "The weeds were wrapped about my head," and I am led thereby to further ex amine this submarine world, I am com' polled to exclaim, what a wonderful God we have! I am glad that by diving bell and "Brooks' deep sea sounding apparatus," and ever improving ma chinery, wo ore permiueu to waiic me floor of the ocean and report tne won Hpr wrought by the trreat God. Study these gardens of the sea. East er and easier shall the profounds of tho ocean become to us, and more and more Its opulence of color and plant unroll. especially as "Vllleroy's Submarine Boat has been constructed malting it possible to navigate under the sea al most as well as on the surface of the sea, and unless God In his meroy ban lshes war from the earth, whole fleet of armed ships will yet far down under the water move on to blow up the ar gosies that float the surface. May such submarine ship be used for laying open the wonder' of God' workings In the great deep and never for human devastation! O, the marvels of the water world! These so-called seaweeds re the pasture fields and the forage of the Innumerable animals of the deep. Notions specie of them can be spared from the eoonomy of nature. Valley ' and mountains and plants mile ander neath the wave are all covered with flora and fauna. Sunken,Alp and Apen ine and Himalaya of Atlantlo and Pa elflo Oceana A continent that once oon c acted Europe and America, so that In th age past men eame on foot across from where England 1 to whsr we now stand, all sunken, and now covered with the growths of th sea, a it ono was covered with growth of th land. England and Ireland onee all on place of land, hut now mnoh of It so far sunken a to mak hannal, and Ireland ha become an Island. . Th islands, for th most part, ar only th forehead ol sunken oon tlaents. Th sea conquering th land all along th coast and ersmbllnf th hemisphere, wider and wider beeom th Mbaqtuoos dominion. Thank God that skilled hydrographera have made us maps and charts of the rivers and lakes and seas, and shown us some thing of the work of the Eternal God in th water worlds. Thank God that the great Virginian, Lieutenant Maury, Uved to give us "The Physical Geo graphy of the Sea," and that men oz genius have gone forth to study the so- called weeds that wrapped about Jonah's head and have found them to be coronals of beauty, and when the tide reoeded, these scientists have waded down and ploked up divinely pictured leave of the ooean, the naturalists, Pike and Hooper and Walters, gathering them from the beach of Long laiana Sound, and Dr. Blodgett preserving them from the shores of Key West and Profs. Emerson and Gray finding them along Boston Harbor, and Prof. Qibbs gathering them , from Charleston Har bor, and for all the other tiiumpn ol Iff ology, or the eotenee of seaweed. Why oonflne ourselves to the old and haokneyed Illustrations of the wonder workings of God, when there are at least five great seas full of Illustrations not marshalled, every root ana frond and oeli and color and movement and habit of oceanic vegetation orylng out: "Oodl God! He made us. He clothed us. He adorned us. He was the God of our anoestors dear back to the first soa-growth, when God divided the waters whloh were above the firma ment from the water which were un dor the firmament, and . shall be the God of our descendant olear down to the day when the sea shall give up It dead. We have heard His command and we have obeyed: 'Praise the Lord, dracrons and all deeps.' " There is a great comfort that rout over upon us from this study of the so called weed, and .that is the demon strated doctrine of a particular provi dence. When I find that the Lord pro vides In the so-oalled sea weed the pas turage of the thronged marine world, so that not a fin or scale in all the oceanic aquarium suffer, need I con clude He will feed us, and If He suite the Algm to the animal life of the deep, He will provide the food for our pnysi- cal and spiritual noeds. And If He clothes the flowors of the deep with richness of robes that looks bright as fallen rainbows by day, and at night makes the undorworld look as tnougn the sea were on fire, surely He will clothe rou, "O. ye of little faith!" And what fills me with unspeakable delight la that this God of depths and heights. of ooean and continent may, through Jesus Christ, the divinely appointed means, be yours and mine to help, to oheor, to pardon, to save, to empara' dlse. Whot matters who in eerUt or hell Is against us, if He Is for us? Om nipotence to defend us, omnipresence to companion us, ana inuniie iovo mi enfold and uplift and enrapture us. And whnn God docs small things so well, aoumlne-lv taklna as much care with the coil of a sea weed as the ouiDraoon Ing of a Lebanon cedar, and with the color of a vegetable growth which Is hlil.l.m fathoms out of sight as He does with the solferlno and purple of a sum mcr sunset we will be determined to do well all we are called to do, though tin one ace or appreciate us. Mighty God! Roll In upon our admiration and holy appreciation more of the wonders of this submarine worms wy joy that after we are ault of all earthly hindrances we may oome back to this world and exnloro what we cannot now fnllv Investigate. If we shall have power to soar Into the atmospnerio without fatigue I think we shall have power to dive into the aqueous without peril, and that the pictured and tessel lated sea-floor will be accesaiuie oa now la to the traveler the floor of the Alhambra, and all the gardens of the deep will then swing open to us their gates as now to the tourist Chateworth opens on public days it cascades and statuary and conservatories xor our cu trance, "it doth not yet appear what wo ahull be."

And now I make the marine doxology of David my peroration, for It was written about forty or flity miles irom in piace where the scene of the text was en acted, "The sea Is Hi and He made It; and HI hand formed the dryland. O, come, let us worship and bow down; 1st us kneel before the bord, our maker. for He Is our God, and we are the people of Hi pasture. " Amen. A SaJun Joke.
