Dr. Talmage, who Is now In Australia, on his round-the-world tour, elected as the subject for his latest sermon through the press: "An Only Son;" the text chosen being Luke vii. 12-15:; '.. . Now when he came nigh to the gate ot the elty, behold, there was a dead man carried out, the only eon of his mother, and she was a widow; and much people of the oity was with her. And when the Lord saw her He had compassion on her, and said unto her, weep not. And Be came and touched the bier, and they that bare him stood stllL And Be said: Young man, I say unto thee, arise. And he that was dead sat up, and began to speak. And Be delivered him to his mother. The text calls us to stand at the gate of the city of Nain. The streets are arush with business and gayety and the ear is deafened with the hammers of mechanism and the wheels of traffic. Work, with its thousand arms and thousand eyes and thousand feet, fills all the street, whon suddenly the crowd Darts and a funeral passes. Between the wheels of work and pleasure there comes a long procession of mourning people. Who ia It? A trifler says: "O, It's nothing but a funeral, it may have come up from the hospital of the city. or the almshouse, or some low place 01 the town." But not so says the serious observer. There are so many evidences of the bereavement that we know at the first glance some one has been taken away greatly beloved, and to our inquiry: "Who is this that is carried out with so many offices of kindness and affection?" the reply comes: "The only son of . his mother and she a widow." Stand back and let the pro cession pass out! Hush all the voices of mirth and pleasure! Let every head be uncovered! Weep with this passing procession; and let it bo told through all the market places and bazars of Nain that in Galileo to-day the sep ulchre hath gathered to itself "the only son of his mother, and she a widow." There are two or three-' things that, in my mind, give especial pathoB to this scene. The first is, he was a young 1 man that was being carried out. To I the aged, death becomes beautiful. The old man halts and pants along the road, where once he bounded like the roe. From the midst of immedicable ailments and sorrows, he cries out: How long, O Lord, how long?" Foot- sore ana naruiy oesieaa on me nun journey, he wants to get home. He sits in the church, and sings, wan a tremulous voice, some tune he sang forty years ago, and longs to join the better assemblage of the one hundred and forty and four thousand, and thou sands of thousands who have passed the flood. How sweetly he sleeps the last sleep! Push back the white locks from the wrinkled temples; they will never ache again. Fold the hands over the still heart; they will never toil again. Close gently the eyes; they will never weep again. But this man that I am speaking of was a young man. lie was just putting on the armor of life, and he was exult ing to think how his sturdy blows would rwgout above tne clangor 01 the battle. I suppose he had a young man's hopes, a young man's ambitions and a young man s courage, ne sum; 'If I live many years, 1 win, leea tne hungry and jclothe the .'naked. In this city of. Nam, where there are so many bad young men, I will be sober, and honest, and pure, and magnanimous, and my mother shall never be ashamed of me." But all these prospects are blasted In one hour. There he passes lifeless in the procession. Behold all that is left on earth of the high-hearted young man of the city of Nain. There is another thing that adds very much to this scene, and that is, he was an only son. However large the faml- lv flock may be, he never could think of sparing one of the lambs, mougn they may all have their faults, they all have their excellences that commend ithem to the parental heart; and if it were peremptorily demanded of you to day that yon should yield up one 01 your children out of a very large fam ily, you would be contounaea, ana you could not make a selection. But this was an only son, around whom gath ered all the parental expectations. How much care in his education! How much caution in watching his habitst He would carry down the name to other times. He would have entn-e control of the family property long after the parents had gone to their last reward. He would stand in society a thinker, a worker, a philanthropist, a Christian. No, no, It is all ended. Uehoid mm there. Breath is gone. Life is extinct. The only son of his mother. There was one other thing that added to the pathos of this scene, and that was, his mother was a widow. The main hope of that homo had been broken, and now he was come up to be the staff. The chief light of the household had been extinguished, and this was the only light left. I suppose she often said, looking at him, "There are only two of us." O, it is a grand thing to see a young man step out in life and say to his mother, "Don't be down hearted. I will, as far as possible, take father's place, and as long as I live, you shall never want anything." It is not always that way. Sometimes the young people get tired of the old people. They say they are queer; that they have so many ailments; and they sometimes wish them out of the way. A young man and hi wife sat at the table, their little son on the floor playing beneath the table. The old father was very old, and his hand shook, so they said: "Yon shall no longer sit with ns attho table." And so they gave htm a place in the corner, where day by day he ate out of an earthen bowl everything put into that bowL One day his hand trembled so much , that lie dropped it, and it broke; and the son, seated at th elegant table in mid-floor, said to hi wife: "Now, well get father a wooden bowl, and that he can't break." So a wooden bowl was obtained, and every day old grandfather 'ate out of that, sitting in the corner. One day, while the elegant young man ana bis wue were seated at their table, with chased silver and all the luxuries, and their little son sat upon the floor, they saw the son whittling, and they said: my son, what are you doing there with the knife?" "O," said he, "I-I'm making a trough for my father and mother to eat out of when they get old!" But this young man of the text waa not of that character. He did not be long to that school. I can tell it from the way they mottrned over him. He was to be the companion of his mother. He was to be his mother's protector. He would return now some of the kind nesses ho had received in the days of childhood and boyhood. Ay, he would with his strong hand uphold that form already enfeebled with age. Will he doit? No. In one hour all that prom ise of help and companionship is gone. There is a world of anguish in that one short phrase: "The only son of his mother, and she a widow." Now, my" friends, it was upon this scene that Christ broke. He came in without anv introduction. He stopped only a man, In whose presence tike paralytic arm was thrust out well, and the devils crouched, and the lepers dropped their scales and the tempests '.folded their 'winirs, and the boy'a satchel of a few.loaves made a banquet for five thousand, and the sad proces sion of my text broke up in congratu lation and hosanna! Again, I learn from this subject that Christ was a sympathizer. Mark you, this was a city funeral. In the country, when the bell tolls, they know all about It for five miles around, and they know what was the matter with the man, how old he was, and what were his last experiences. They know with what temporal prospects he has left his family. There is no haste, there Is "no indecericy in the obsequies. There is nothing done as a mere matter of business. Even the children come out as the procession passes, and look sym pathetic, and the tree-shadows seem to deepen, and the-brooks weep in sym pathy as the procession goes by. Hut, mark you, this that I am speaking of was a city funeral. In great cities the cart jostles the hearse, and there is mirth and gladness and indifference as the weeping procession goes by. In this oity of Nain it was a common thing to have trouble and bereavement and pre, it to your heart, angel to aagal will repeat the story of Nain, "H de livered him to bis mother." ;Did 70m notice that passage In the text as I rea4 it? "He delivered him to his mother." O ye troubled soulsl 0 ye who havs lived to see every prospect blasted, peeled, scattered, ponsumedl ' Wait a little. The seed-time of tears will be come the wheat harvest. In a dime out of no wintry Wast, nndsr a sky palled by no hurtling tempest, and amidst redeemed ones that weep not, that part not. that dls not, friend will come to friend," and kindred will JoU kindred, and the long procession that marches the avenues of gold will lift up (their palms as again and again it la announced that the same one who cams to the relief of this woman of the text came to the relief of many a maternal heart, and repeated the wonders of res urrection, and "delivered him to his mother," O, that will be the harvest 01 the world. That will be the corona tion of princes. That will be the Sab bath of eternity. OOWLEDGE the procession. He had only two utter- 1 deatll Christ saw it every day there. ances to make; the one to the mourn Ing mother, the other to the dead. He cried out to the mourning one, "Weep not;" and then, touching the bier on which the son lay, he cried out: "Young man, I say unto thcej Arise! And he that was dead sat up." 1 learn two or threo things from this subject, and, first, that Christ was a man. You see how that sorrow played upon all tho chords of his heart I think we forpet this too often. Christ was a man mure certainly than you are, for ho was a perfect man. No sailor ever slept iu ship's hummock more soundly than Christ slept in that boat on Gen nesaret. In every nerve, and muscle, and bono, and fiber of His body; in every emotion and affection, of His heart; in every action and decision of His mind, Ha was a man. He looked off upon the waters. He went into Mar tha's house just as you go into a cot tage, lie breathed hard when He was tired, just as you do when you are ex hausted. He felt after sleeping out a niffht in the storm just like you do j when you have been exposed to a tem pest. It was just aa humiliating lor Him to beg bread as it would be for you to become a pauper. He felt just as much insulted by being sold for thirty pieces of silver as you would if you were sold for the price of a dog. From the crown of the head to the sole of the THE MOTHER Norway and Perhaps that very hour there were others being carried out, but this fre quency of trouble did not harden Christ's heart at all. He stepped right out, and He saw this mourner, and He had compassion on her, and He said: "Weep not." Now. I have to tell vou. 0 bruised souls, and there are many everywhere (have you ever looked over any great audience and noticed how many shad ows of sorrow there are?) I come to all such and say: "Christ meets you, and He has compassion on you, and He says, 'Weep not.'" Perhaps with some it Is financial trouble. "0,"' you say, "it is such a silly thing for a man to cry over lost money." Is It? Suppose you had a large fortune, and all luxu ries brought to your table, and your wardrobe was full, and your home was beautified by music, and sculpture, and painting, and thronged by the elegant and educated, and then some rough misfortune should strike you In the face, and trample your treasures, and taunt your children for their faded rlroaa. and send vou into com mercial circles an underling, where once you waved a scepter of gold, do you think you would cry then? I think you would. But Christ comes and meets all such to-day. He sees all the straits in which you have been thrust. He observes the sneer of that man who once was proud to walk In your shadow lie sees tne foot He was a man. When the thorns were twisted for His brow, they hurt j and giaa Ret your help. mm just as mucn as tney nurs your brow, if they were twisted for lt He took not on Him the nature of angels; He took on Him the seed of Abraham.

It is something like the first view of the coast of Ireland, only mors so. The islands of rook rise boldly out of the water, and before you realist anything the steamer seems to bs headed straight for ths rocks. Ths an opening appears. The man in tho pilot-house, acting in obedience to mo tions of the pilot's arm, steers between the rocks and turns quickly. to avoid another, when you experience your first real appreciation of the skill of Norwegian pilot in maneuvering his ship. In and out among the rocks you go, until finally you pass between two mountain islands, and the city or tfer eren, resting at the water's edge among mountains of bold rock from one thou sand to two thousand feet high, Is be fore vou. When I arrived in Bergen It was only 8 o'clock In the morning In July, and yet day was breaking in on the city, and It had not been darn aa night. Here was a city of flfty-thres thousand Inhabitants actually cutoff from the world, appearing to have put it back up against its mother countrj and defied the rest of the world to dis turb its peace. The atmosphere of all the Norway fishing towns Is one of peaoe and liberty. Bergen is the center of the fishing Industry of the oountry, and thrives mainly on this Industry.

If Christ had been a mere mortal would He have a right to come in upon such a i procession? Would tie have succeeded In His interruption? He was more than a man, for when He cried out: " 'I say unto thee, arise!' he that was dead sat up." What excitement there must have been thereabouts! The body had lain prostrate. It had been mourned over with agonizing tears, and yet now it begins to move in the shroud, and to be flushed with life? and at the com mand of Christ, he rises up and looks In to the faces of the astonished specta tors.

They say He was a very good man, but He was not a God. That is impossible. He was either a God or a wretch, and I will prove It. If a man professes to be that which he is not, what Is he? He Is a liar, an Imposter, a hypocrite. That Is your unanimous verdict Now, Christ professed to be a God. He said over and over again He was a God, took the attributes of a God, and assumed the works and offices of a God. Dare you now say He was not? He was a God, or He was a wretch. Choose ye. Do you think I cannot prove by this Bible that He was a God? If you do not believe this Bible, of course there is no need of my talking to you. There is no common data from which to start. Suppose you do believe It? Then I can demonstrate that He was divine; I can prove that He was Creator: John 1, 3: "All things were made by Him; and without Him was not anything made that was made.",- He was eternal: Rev. 23, 13, "I am Alpha and Omega, the be ginning and the end; the first and the last" I can prove that He was om nipotent: neb. 1, 10, "The heavens are the work of Thine b,ands." .1 can prove He was omniscient: John 2. 25, "He knew what was in man." O yes, He is a God. He cleft the sea. He up heaved the crystalline walls along which the Israelites marched. He planted the mountains. He raises up governments and casts down thrones, and marches across the universe, eter nal, omnipotent, unhindered and una bashed.

O, d not Insult the common sense of the: race by telling us that this person wai hanoiness. It may be an evu suspicion. It may be the disgrace following in the footsteps of a son that Is wayward, or a companion who is cruel, or a father that will not do right; and for years there may have been a vulture striking its beak Into the vitals of your soul, and you sit there to-day feeling it Is worse than death. It Is. It is worse than death. And yet tnere is renei. Though the night may be the blackest, though the voices 01 neii may ten you to ourse God and die, look up and hear the voice that accosted the woman of the text as It says: "Weep not." Earth hath no sorrow I That Heaven oannot cure. I learn, again, from all this that Christ is the master of the grave. Just outside the gate of the city Death and Christ measured lances, and when the young man rose Death dropped. ' Now we are sure of our' resurrection. 0, what a scene it was -when the young man came back! The mother never ex pected to hear Wm speak again. She never thought that he would kiss her again. How the tears started, and how the heart throbbed, as she said: 0, my son, my son, my son!" And that scene is going to be repeated. It Is going to be repeated ten thousand times. These broken family circles have got to come together. ' These extinguished house hold lights have got to be rekindled. There will be a stir in the family lot in the cemetery, and there will be a rush into life at the command: "Young man, I say unto thee, Arise!" As the child shakes off the dust of the tomb and cornel forth fresh and fair and beautiful, and put on and take off "things." We put down and take up "things." We walk over "things," and pick "things" up, and put "things" away. We love "things" and hate "things," and con sider "things" and think about "things." We look beyond the "things" seen to the "things" not seen. And these are "things" temporal, and those are "things" eternal. And each and every one of these "things" has a different significance and belongs to a different class. There are material "things" among them, and immaterial "things." They are physical and mental; of heaven and earth; of time and of eternity. A word of no special definition, it designates everything in turn. For it may bo any It mav be nothinir. . . It Is a facile snaro to the slipshod writer. Dilating on the beauties of "everything," this "lovely thing," or that "exquisite thing" tempts him to rest satisfied with the yielding expres sion which saves search for a more inpnifla word. ' It is the ready recourse of the shallow clatterer, who calls her friend a "sweet thing" as frequently as she speaks of her enemy as a "spiteful thing." It is the refuge of the lazy, the negligent, the ignorant talker of any age, to whom the proper names of articles are superfluous so long as the word "things" assist in the dictionary. So universally misused, abused, and overworked is this general term that the proper thing under the circum tjmrs would be so far as possible to ignore It In our own conversation and j in the talk of other people, and to In- I sist that Ideas be conveyed by words ' which mean exactly wnat is intended lnun vi 111GU women and children sulferiug with nervous debility, sexual exhaustion, Impotency.effects of onanism, rheumatism, dyspepsia, constipa tion, sick headache, irregularities, sterility, leucorrhoea, Incontinence, Insomnia, spinal disease, torpid liver.pnlpltatlunand all drains upon the nervous and vital system, perma nently and forever cured.
