A Dramatle BlbU Seem Th Dkabled Bamu Saal H ambled and Reatorad. The Important Part of Every Prayer. Glories of a Magnificent Gospel. WAsniXGTOS, July 12. Dr. Talmncc'i ternion of today U a vivid and novel pres entation of the theories o( ruin and resto ration. The Bible scene described is dra matic. His text km II Samuel ia, 1 and 13: "Is there yet any that is left ef the bouse of Saul, that I may show him kind ness for Jonathan's sake? SoMephib osheth dwelt iu Jerusalem, for he did eat continually at the king's table and was lame on both his feet." Was there ever anything more romantic and chivalrous than the lore of David and Jonathan? At one time Jonathan was up and David was down. Now David is up and Jonathan's family is down. As you have often heard of two soldiers before go ing into battle making a covenant that if one is shot the survivor will take charge of the body, the watch, the mementos and perhaps of the bereft family of the one that dies, so David and Jonathan have made a covenant, and now that Jonathan is dead David is Inquiring about his family, that he may show kindness unto them for their father Jonathan's sake. Careful search is made, and a son of Jonathan of the dreadfully homely name of Mephibosheth is found. His nurse, In his infancy, had let him fall, and the fall had put both his ankles out of place, and they had never been set. This decrepit, poor man is brought into the palace of King David. David looks upon him with melting tenderness, no doubt seeing in his face a resemblance to his old friend, the deceased Jonathan. The whole bearing of King David toward him seems to say: " How glad I nm to see you, Mephibosheth ! How you remind me of your father, my old friend and benefactor! I made a bargain with your father a good many years ago, and I am going to keep it, with you. What can I do for you, Mephiboshethf I am re solved what to do I will make you a rich man. I will restore to you the conllscutcd property of your grandfather Saul, and you shall boa guest of mine as long as you live, and you shall be seated at my table among the princes. " It was too much for Mcphibosheth, and be cried out against it, calling himself a dead dog. "Be still," says David. "I don't do this on your own ac count I do this for your father Jonathan's sake. I can never forget his kindness. I remember when I was hounded from place to place how he befriended me. Can I ever forget how he stripped himself of his cour tier apparel and gave it to me instead of my shepherd s coat, and how he took off his own sword and belt and gave them to me instead of my sling? Oh, I can never forget him! I feel as it I couldn't do enough for you, his son. I don't do it for your sake; I do it for your father Jona than's sake. " '"So Mephlhosheth dwelt in Jerusalem, for he did eat continually ut the king's table and was lame on both his feet." A Disabled Sonl. There is so much gospel in this quaint incident that I um embarrassed to know where to begin. Whom do Mephlhosheth and David ami Jonathan make you think of? Mephlhosheth. in the first place, stands for the disabled human soul. Lord Byron describes sin as a charming rccklessnc: as a gallantry, as a Don Juan. George Sand describes sin as triumphant in many intricate plots. Gavarni, with his engrnv er's knife, always shows sin as a great jocularity. But the Bible presents it as a Mcphibosheth, lame on both teet. Mn, like the nurse In the context, attempted to carry us and let us fall, and we have been disabled, and in our whole moral nature we arc decrepit. Sometimes theologians haggle about a technicality. They use the words "total depravity," and some people believe in the doctrine, and some reject it. What do you mean by total depravity? Do you mean that every man is as bad as he can be? Then I do not believe it either. But do you mean that sin has let us fall; that it has scarified and disabled and crip pled our entire moral nature until we can not walk straight and are lame in both feet? Then I admit your proposition. There is not so much difference in an Afri can jungle, with barking, howling, hiss ing, fighting quadruped and reptile, and paradise, with its animals coming before Adam, when he patted them and stroked them and gave them names, so that the panther was as tame as the cow, and the condor as tame us the dove, as there is be tween the human soul disabled and that soul as God originally constructed it. I do not caro what the sentimentalists or the poets say in regard to sin. In the name of God, I declare to you today that sin is dis organization, disintegration, ghastly dis figuration, hobbling deformity. Your modern theologian tells you that man is a little out of sorts. He sometimes thinks wrong. He sometimes does wrong indeed, his nature needs a little moral surgery, an outside splint, a slight com press, a little rectification. Religion is a good thing to have; it might some day come into use. Man is partially wrong, not all wrong. He is lame in one foot. Bring the 6alve of divine grace, and the ointment, and the pain extractor, and we will have his one foot cured. Man is only half wrong, not altogether wrong. In what is man's nature right? In his will, his af fections, his judgment? No. There is an old book that says, " The whole head is sick and the whole heart faint. " Mcphib osheth lame In both feet! Our belief of the fact that sin has scarified and deformed our soul3 increases as we go on in years. When you started life, you thought that mun was a little marred by sin, and he was about one-tenth wrong. By the time you had gone through the early experience of your trade or occupation or profession you believed that man was about half wrong. By the time you came to midlife you believed that man was three-fourths wrong. But within these past few years, since you have been so lied about and swindled and cheated, you have come to the conclusion that man is altogether wrong, and now you can say with the prayer book and with the Bible, "There is no health in us. " Now you believe with the prophet, "The heart is deceitful above all things and desperately wicked. " What ever you may have believed before, now you believe that Mephibosheth is lame on both feet Humbled, bat Restored. Again, Mephibosheth in the text standi for the disabled human soul humbled and restored. When this invalid of my text got a command to come to King David's pal ace, he trembled. The fact was that the grandfather of Mephibosheth had treated David most shockingly, and now Mephib osheth says to himself: "What does the king want of meP Isn't it enough that I am lame? Is he going to destroy my life? Is ho going to wreak on me the vengeance Great Oaks from Little Acorns Grows Is a lino from the trite old verse wo used to recite in our school boy days. It is a forcible application to those small ailments which we are apt to disregard until they reach formid able proportions. A lit of indigestion, a "slight" attack of constipaton, it is assumed will soon pass off. but is very apt to get worse, and in the meantime is neglectedjuntil the ailment becomes chronic, and then, if not entirely eradicated, is a constant annoyance and menace of worse consequences, for dis eases, recollect, beget one another.

With staff and crutches and hcl Ail by his friends, I see Mephibo sheth going up the stairs of the palace. I hear his staff and crutches ruttlin? on the tessellated floor of the thronen ni. Xo s Min er have these two persons confronted each other. Mephibosheth and David, the king, than Mephilxisheth throws himself flat on his face before the king und styles himself a dead dog. In the east when a man styles himself a dog he utters the utmost term of I :lf ubnegation. It is not a term so strong lu this country, where, if a dog has a fair chance, he sometimes shows more nobility of character than some human specimens that we wot of, but the mangy curs of the oriental cities, ns I knaw by my own ob servation, are utterly detestable. Mephib osheth gives the utmost term of self loath ing when he compares himself to a dog, and dead at that Consider the analogy. When the com mand is given from the palace of heaven to the humun soul to come, the soul begins to tremble. It says: "What is God going to do with me now? Is he going to destroy me? Is he going to wreak his vengeance upon me?" There is more than one Mcphib osheth trembling now because God has summoned him to the palace of divine grace. lint aro you trembling about? God has no pleasure in the death of a sin ner. He does not send for you to hurt you. He sends for you to do you good. A Scotch preacher had the following circumstances brought under his observation: There was a poor woman in the parish who was about to be turned out because she could not pay her rent. One night she hoard a loud knocking at the door, and she made no an swer and hid herself. The rapping con tinued louder, louder, louder, but she made no answer and continued to hide herself. She was almost frightened unto death. She said, "That's the officer of the law come to throw me out of my home." A few days after a Christian philan thropist met her in the street and suid: "My poor woman, where were you the other night? I came round to your house to pay your rent. Why didn't you let me in? Were you at home?" "Why," she replied, "was that you?" "Yes, that was me. I came to pay your rent. " "Why, " she said, "if I had had any idea it was you, I would have let you in. I thought it was an officer come to cast me out of my home. " O soul, that loud knocking at thy gate today is not the sheriff come to put you in jaiL It Is the best friend you ever had come to be your security. You shiver with terror beiause you think it Is wrath. It is mercy. Why, then, tremble before the King of heaven and earth calls you to his palace? Stop trembling and start right away. "Oh," you say, "I can't start. I have been so lamed by sin and so lamed by evil habit I can't start. I am lame in both feet. " My friend, we come out with our prayers and sympathies to help you up to the palace. If you want to get to the palace, you may get there. Start now. The Holy Spirit will help you. All you have to do is just to throw yourself on your face at the feet of the King, as Me phibosheth did. The Sinner's Cry. Mephibosheth 's canlnnl comparison seems extravagant to the world, but when a man has seen himself as he really is and seeii how he has been treating the Lord there is no term vehement enough to ex press his self condemnation. The dead dog of Mcphibosheth 's comparison fails to de scribe the man's utter loathing of himself. Mephibosheth's posturing does not seem too prostrate. When a soul is convicted, first he prays upright Then the muscles of his neck relax, and he is able to bow his head. After awhile, by an almost super human effort, he kneels down to pray. Aft er awhile, when he has seen God and seen himself, he throws himself flat on his face at the feet of the King, just like Mephibosheth. The fact is if we could see ourselves as God sees us we would perish at the spectacle. You would have no time to overhaul other people. Your cry would be, "God, be merciful to me, a sinner!" And, again, Mephibosheth in my text stands for the sake of another. Mephibo sheth would never have got into the palace on his own account. Why did David ran sack the realm to find that poor man and then bestow upon him a great fortune and command a farmer of the name of Ziba to culture the estate and give to this invalid Mephibosheth half the proceeds every year? Why did King David make such a mighty stir about a poor fellow who would never be of any use to the throne of Israel? It was for Jonathan's sake. It was what Robert Burns calls for "nuld lang syne. " David could not forget what Jonathan had done for him in other days. Three times this chapter has it that all this kindness on the part of David to Mephibosheth was for his father Jonathan's sake. The daughter of Peter Martyr, through the vice of her husband, came down to penury, and the senate of Zurich took care of her for her father's sake. Sometimes a person has applied to you for help, and you have refused him, but when you found he was the son or brother of some one who had been your benefactor in former days and by a glance you saw the resemblance of your old friend In the face of the applicant you relented and you said, "Oh, I will do this for your father's sake." You know by your experience what my text means. Now, my friends, it is on that principle that you and I are to get into the King's palace. In His Name. The most important part of every prayer is the last three or four words of it "For Christ's sake." Do not rattle off those words as though they were merely the fin ishing stroke of the prayer. They arc the most important part of the pruyer. When in earnestness you go before God and say "for Christ's sake" it rolls in, as it were, upon God' s mind all the memories of Bethlehem and Gennesaret and Golgotha When you say before God "for Christ's Bake" you hold before God's mind every groan, every tear, every crimson drop of his only begotten Son. If there is any thing In all the universe that will move God to an act of royal benefaction, it is to say "For Christ's sake. " God is omnipo tent, but he is not strong enough to resist that cry, "For Christ's sake. " If a littlo child should kneel behind God's throne and should say "For Christ's sake," the great Jehovah would turn around on his throne to look at her and listen. No prayer ever gets to heaven but for Christ's sake. No soul is ever comforted but for Christ's sake. The world will ever be redeemed but for Christ's sake. Our name, however illus trious it muy be among men, before God stands only for inconsistency and sin. But there Is a name, a potent name, u blessed name, a glorious name, an everlasting name, that we may put upon our lips as a sacrament and upon our forehead as a crown, and that is the name of Jesus, our divine Jonathan, who stripped himself of his robe and put on our rags and gave us his sword and took our broken reed ; so that now. w-hcther we -are well r sick. Pills will cure you. 25c. whether we are living or dying, if we speat that name it moves heaven to the center, and God says: " Let the poor soul come In. Carry him up Into the thronoroom of the paluce. Though he may hove been In exile, though sin may have crippled him on this side, and sorrow may have crippled him on the other side, and he Is lame In both his feet, bring him up Into the palace, for I want to show him everlasting kindness for Jonathan's sake." Again, Mephibosheth In my text stands for the disabled human soul lifted to the King's table. It was more dilficult In those times even than it Is now for common men to get into a royal dining room. The sub jects might have come around the rail of the palace and might have seen the lights kindled, and might have heard the clash of the knives and the rattle of the golden goblets, but not get In. Stout men with stout feet could not get In once In ull their lives to one banquet, yet poor Mephlho sheth goes In, lives there ond is every day at the table. Oh, what a getting up in the world it was for poor Mephibosheth! Well, though you and I may be woefully lamed with sin, for our divine Jonathan's sake I hope we will all get in to dine with the King. Before dining we must be introduced. If you are invited to a company of persons where there are distinguished people pres ent, you are introduced: "This is the sen ator." "This is the governor." "This is the president." Before wo sit down at the King's table in heaven I think we will want to be introduced Oh, what a time that will be when you and I, by the grace of God, get into heaven and are in troduced to the mighty spirits there, and Bome one will say, "This is Joshua." "This is Paul," "This is Moses," "This is John Knox," "This is John Milton," "This is Martin Luther," "This is George Whitelleld. " Oh, shall we have any strength left after such a round of celestial intro duction? Yea, we shall be potentates our selves. Then we shall sit down at the King's table with the sons and daughters of God, and one will whisper across the table to us and say, "Behold what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us that we should be called the sons of God!" And some one at the table will say: "How long will it last? All other banquets at which I sat ended. How long will this last?" And Paul will answer, "Forever!" and Joshua will say, "Forever!" and John Knox will say, "Forever!" and George Whitefield will say, "Forever!" A Glorious Goapel. And the wine at that banquet will be old wine; it will be very old wine; it will be the oldest wine of heaven; it will be the wine that was trodden out from the red clusters on the day when Jesus trod the wine press alone. Wine already more than 18 centuries old. All our earthly imperfec tions completely covered up and hidden. Mephibosheth's feet under the table. King ly fare. Kingly vesture. Kingly compan ionship. We shall reign forever and ever. I think that banquet will mean more to those who had It hard in this world than to those who had It easy. That banquet In David's palace meant more to Mephibo sheth than to any one else, because he had been poor and crippled and despised and rejected. And that man who in this world is blind will better appreciate the light of heaven than we who in this world had good eyesight. And that man who in this world was deaf will better appreciate the music of heaven than we who in this world hud good hearing. And those will have a higher appreciation of the easy locomotion of that land who in this world were Mephib osheths. O my soul, what a magnificent gospel! It takes a man so low down and raises him so high! What a gospel! Come now, who wants to be banqueted and impulaced? As when Wilberforce was trying to get the emancipation bill through the British parliament and all the British isles were anxious to hear of the passage of that emancipation bill, when a vessel was coming into port and the captain of the vessel knew that the people were so anxious to get the tidings, he stepped out on the prow of the ship and shouted to the people long before he got up to the dock, "Free! und they cried it, and they shouted it, and they sang it all through the land, "Free, free!" So today I would like to sound the news of your present and your eternal emancipation until the angels of God hov ering iu the air and watchmen on the bat tlements and bellmen In the town cry It, shout it, sing it, ring it, "Free, free!" I come out now as the messenger of the pal ace to invite Mephibosheth to come up. I am hero today to tell you that God has a weidth of kindness to bestow upon you for his bon a sake. The doors of the palace aro open to receive you. The cupbeurers have already put the chalices on the table, and the great, loving, tender, sympathetic heart of God bends over you Oils moment, saying, "Is there any that is yet left of the house of Saul, that I may show him kind ness for Jonathan's sake?" Temperature and Contraction of Water. At a meeting of the Edinburgh Phllo- sophical society an experiment showing the contraction of water above tho freezing point was exhibited. The water operated on was contained in a glass jar, about 1 inches in diameter and ubout 18 inches high. The changes in its density were clearly shown by the ascent and descent of colored glass balls each about an inch In diameter. hen the water was Ice cold, the balls were all at the bottom, but grad ually, as the warmth of the room was com municated to the water, its contraction and consequent Increase of density caused the balls to rise. As the water approached the state of greatest density the heavier balls were seeu to move about in an Ir regular und spasmodic manner, probably in consequence of the currents in the fluid caused by the changes that were taking place in its temperature. In the course of an hour, the point of maximum density having been passed, the balls began to de scend in reverse order and soon grouped to gether on the bottom again. St Louis Kepublic, Waking a Shah. An amusing story is told of how the late shah fell asleep when he should have been the chief guest at a reception, In Persia they believe that- an awakened person suffers grievous injury. What was to be done? A band was dispatched to the shah's resting place with special instructions to the big drum, The result was successful. When Baby was sick, we gave her Castorla. When she was a Child, she cried for Castorla, When she became Miss, she clung to Castorla. When she had Children, she gave them Castoria. HAS SHE SOLVED ITt Tha fiarbace Problem May Hava to TU1 to a Woman's Ingenuity. Dr. M. H. Bowen boa solved the gar bage problem. She has succeeded, after two weeks' work, In bringing about such a union of effort between housewives, serv ant girls and garbage contractors that cer tain parts of the Eleventh word show no sign of 111 smelling, disease breeding gar bage boxes and are so clean that residents do not recognize their own house fronts snd rears. Dr. Bowen has Introduced an Moment c.f music Into the problem, and the success of the experiment is attested by nearly all the physicians living in the ward. One of the drivers of Contractor PowelL who has thegnrlmge contract for the ward, has been armed with a horn. At the sound of this housewives and servant girls bring out to the wagon in metal receptacles the garbage which has been collected during the previous 24 hours. This does away with the necessity of the ordinary wooden boxes, which soon become saturated with filth, and whether empty or full are constant breeders of disea.se. It la proposed to give every driver one of these horns, and as fast as the houses are provided with the covered metal receptacles, which can bo kept in the yard, the new system will be extended over the entire ward. Dr. Bowen was led to undertake the work by tho condition of the alley lu the rear of her residence. By a house to houso canvass she finally succeeded in persuading ull the residents in tho block to get tho metal receptacles and to do away with tho wooden ones. Then she explained her plan to Contractor Powell, who saw Its advan tages at once and readily consented to al low the driver on that route to play the horn which would be furnished him by tho residents. Having cleaned up the alley In the rear of her own residence. Dr. Bowen began to extend her operations. She gave two hours every day to the missionary work. Tho next place attacked was Ogdcn place, be tween Ogden avenue and Paulina street There the wooden boxes sent their microbe laden smells heavenward from the curb stones. Dr. Bowen found some difficulty In persuading the residents of tho efficacy of the metal receptacles to bo emptied at the sound of the horn. Some of the house holders charged her with being in tho pay of the contractor. She therefore considered It advi.sable to procure credentials from tho physicians of tho ward. By dint of many visits and much talking Dr. Bowen succeeded In banishing the foul wooden boxes from the locality and In putting in operation the horn blowing system. Superintendent Khode of the street and alley cleaning bureau has given Dr. Bowen every encouragement and says her system will solve the problem. It also has the sanction of the Civic federation. Dr. Bowen said yesterday: "The point for which I am working is the abolition of the wooden garbage box, saturated with filth to such a degree that even when empty it Is a serious menace to public health. I shall not stop my work until the entire Eleventh wurd Is free from the wooden garbage box. I nm now pre paring a circular which will be sent to every house In the ward, so that when I call my mission will be understood. When the system has been thoroughly tried I shall endeavor to secure the passage of an ordinance making the system obligatory throughout tha citx. " Chicarro Record.
