Shall Chris tian 1m the World Sacred Sons Ara flattening tho Triumph Th CnlTeras Will Again Bo la Tana. WAEnrxGTON, Nov. 1. The rouslcnl re sources of all nations seem drawn a poo by Dr. TUmafra In thig sermon to Illustrate meat practical truth. Hts subject was "The Chant of the Stars," and the text Job 88, 6, 7, "Who laid the cornerstone thereof, when the morning stars sang to gether" Fe have oil seen the ceremony at the laying of the cornerstone of church, asylum or Masonio temple. Into the hollow of the stone were placed scrolls of history and Important document, to be suggestive if, 100 or 00 years after, the building ahoold be destroyed by fire or torn down. We re member the silver trowel or Iron hammer that smote the square piece of granite Into sanctity. We remember some venerable man - 'no presided wielding the trowel or hmr - ir. We remember also the music as the il.olr stood on the scattered stones and i.nbsr of the building about to be con ducted. The leaves of the notebooks flut tered in the wind and were turned over with a great rustling, and we remember bow the bass, barytone, tenor, contralto and soprano voices commingled. They had for many days been rehearsing the special programme that It might be worthy ol the cornerstone laying. In my text the poet of Us calls ns to a grander ceremony the laying of the foun dation of this great temple of a world, The cornerstone was a block of light, and the trowel was of celestial crystal. All about and on the embankments of clouds stood the angclio choristers unrolling their librettos of overture, and other worlds clapped shining cymbals while the cere mony went on, and God, the Architect, by stroke of light after stroke of light, dedi cated this great cathedral of a world, with mountains for pillars and sky for frescoed ceiling and flowering fields for a floor and sunrise and midnight aurora for upbol stery. "Who laid the cornerstone thereof, when the morning stars snng together?" God's Perfect Harmony. The fact is that the whole universe was a complete cadence, an unbroken dithy ramb, a musical portfolio. The great sheet of immensity bod been spread out, and written on it were the stars, tho smaller of them minims, tho larger of them sustain ed notes. The meteors marked tho stao- cnto passages, the wholo heavens a gamut with all sounds, intonations, modulations, the space between the worlds a musical in tcrval, trembling of stellar light a quaver, the thunder a bass cler, the wind among trees a treble clet That Is the way God made all things a perfect harmony. liut one day a harp string snapped In the great orchestra. One day a voice sounded out of tune. One day a discord, harsh and terrific, grated upon the glori ous antiphon. It was sin that made the dissonance, and that harsh discord has been sounding through the centuries. All the work of Christians and philanthropists and reformers of all ages Is to stop that discord and get all things back into the perfect harmony which was heard at the laying of the cornerstone when the morn tng stars sang together. Before I get through, If I am divinely helped, I will make It plain that sin is discord and righteousness harmony; that in general things are out of tone Is as plain as to a musician 's ear Is the unhappy clash of clar inet and bassoon in an orchestral ren- during. The world's health out of tune: weak lungs and the atmosphere In collision, dls ordered eye and noonday light In quarrel, rheumatio limb and damp weather in struggle; neuralgias, and pneumonias, and consumptions, and epileptics in flocks sweep the neighborhoods and cities. Where you find one person with sound throat, and keen eyesight,and alert oar, and easy respiration, and regular puleatlon, and supple limb, and prime digestion, and steady nerves, you find 100 who have to be very careful because this or that or the other physical function Is disordered. Things Out of Tone. The human Intellect out of tune; the judgment wrongly swerved, or the mem ory leaky, or the will weak, or the temper Inflammable, the well balanced mind ex oepuonnL ' Domestlo life out of tune; only here and theroo conjugal outbreak of Inoompatabil lty of temper through the divorce courts, or a filial outbreak about a father's will through the surrogate's court, or a case of wife beating or husband poisoning through the criminal courts, but thousands of fam Hies with June outside and January with in. Society out of tune; labor and capital their hands on each other's throat; spirit of caste keeping those down in the social scale who are struggling to get up, and putting those who are up In anxiety lest they have to come down. So wonder the old pianoforte of society Is all out of tune, when hypocrisy, and lying, and subterfuge, and double dealing, and sycophancy, and charlatanism, and revenge have for 0,000 years been banging away at the keys and stamping the pedals. On all sides there is a shipwreck of har monies nations In discord without real izing it So wrong is the feeling of nation for nation that symbols chosen are fierce and destructive. In this country, where our skies are full of robins and doves and morning larks, we have our national sym- bo), the fierce and filthy eagle, as cruel a bird as can be found In all the ornitholog ical catalogues. In Great Britain, where they have lambs and fallow deer, their symbol is the merciless lion. In Russia, where from between her frozen north and blooming south all kindly beasts dwell, they chose the growling bear, and in the world's heraldry a favorite figure is the dragon, the fabled winged .serpent, fero- clous and dreadful. And so fond Is the world of contention that we climb out through the heavens and baptize one of the other planets with the spirit of battle and call It Mars, after the god of war, and we give to tho eighth sign of the zodiac the name of the scorpion, a creature which Is chiefly celebrated for its deadly sting. But, after all, these symbols are expressive of the way nation feels toward nation dls cord wide as the continent and bridging the seas. The Belgn of Discord.

If the minister being roasted cries out against It, the men who are turn ing him say, "Hush, my brother, we are turning this spit for the glory of God and the good of your soul, and you must be quiet, while we close the service with: Btest.be the tie that binds Oar hearts In Christian lore. The earth la dlametered and clcrumfer- nced with discord, and the muslo that was rendered at the laying of the world's cornerstone when the morning stars sang together Is not beard now, and though here and there from this and that part of society and from this and that part of the tartb there comes np a thrilling solo of love, or a warble of worship, or a sweet duet of patience, they are drowned out by discord that shakes the earth. Paul says, "The whole creation groan- etb, " And while the nightingale, and the woodlark, and the canary, and the plover sometimes sing so sweetly that their notes have been written out In musical notation, and It is found that the cuckoo sings In the key of D and that the cormorant Is a basso In the winged choir, yet sportsman's gun and the autumnal blast often leave them ruffled and bleeding or dead In mead ow or forest Paul was right, for the groan In nature drowns out the prima donnas of the rkr. Tartint, the t reat musical composer, dreamed one nlpi.t that be made a contract with satan, the lutter to be ever In the composer's service. But one night he handed to sntai: a violin, on which Diabo lus played such sweet mnslo that the com poser was awakened by the emotion and tried to reproduce the sounds, and there from was written Tartinl's most famous piece, "The Devil's Sonata," a dream in genious, but faulty, for all melody de scends from heaven and only discords as cend from helL All hatreds, feuds, con troversies, backbltlngs and revenges are the devil's sonata, are diabolio fugue, are demonlao phantasy, are grand march of doom, are allegro of perdition. Definition of gin. But If In this world things in general are out of tune to our frail car, how much more so to beings angelio and delflol It takes a skilled artist to fully appreciate disagreement of sound. Muny have no ca pacity to detect a defect of musical cxecu tion, and though there were in one bar as many offenses against harmony as could crowd in between the lower F of the bass and the higher G of the soprano it would give them no discomfort, while on the fore head of the educated artist beads of per spiration would stand out as a result of the harrowing dissonance. While an ama teur was performing on a piano and had just struck the wrong chord, John Sebas- tiun Bach, the immortal composer, entered the room, and the amateur rose in embar rassment, and Bach rushed past the host, who stepped forward to greet him, and be fore the keyboard hud Btopped vibrating put his adroit hand upon the keys and changed tho painful lnharmony Into glori ous cadence. Then Bach turned and gave salutation to the host But the worst of all discord is moral dis cord. If society and the world are pain fully discordant to imperfect man, what must they be to a perfect Godf People try to define what sin is. It seems to me that sin is getting out of harmony with God, a disagreement with his holiness, with his purity, with his love, with his commands, our will clashing with his will, the finite dashing against the infinite, the frail against the puissant the created against the creator. If 1,000 musicians, with flute and cornet-a-piston and trumpet and vio loncello, the hautboy and trombone and all the wind and stringed instruments that ever gathered In a Dusseldorf jubilee should resolve that they would play out of tune and put concord to the rack and make the place wild with shrieking and grating and rasping sounds, they could not make such a pandemonium as that which rages In a sinful soul when Uod listens to the play of its thoughts, passions and emo tions discord, lifelong discord, madden ing discord. The world pays more for discord than It does for consonance. High prices have been paid for music. One man gave (325 to bear the Swedish songstress In New York, and another S625 to hear her In Bos ton, and another $650 to hear her in Provi dence. Fabulous prices have been pad for sweet sounds, but far more has been paid for discord. 1 he Crimean war cost (1, 700, 000,000 and the American civil war over 19,600,000,000, and the war debts of pro fessed Christian nations are about 115, 000,000,000. The world pays for this red ticket, which admits it to the saturnalia of broken bones and death agonies and de stroyed cities and plowed graves and crushed hearte, any amount of money sa tan asks. Discord I Discord! The Stars WU1 Sing Again. But I have to tell you that the song that the morning stars sang together at the lay ing of the world's corner tsone is to resound again. Mozart's greatest overture was composed one night when he was several times overpowered with sleep, and artists say they can tell the places In the must where he was falling asleep and the places where he awakened. So the overture of the morning stars spoken of In my text has been asleep, but It will awaken and be more grandly rendered by the evening stars of the world's existence than by the morning stars, and the vespers will be sweeter than the matins. The work of all good men and women and of all good churches and all reform associations help to bring the race back to the original har mony. The rebellious heart to be attuned, social life to be attuned, commercial ethics to be attuned, internatlonallty to be at tuned, hemispheres to be attuned. In olden times the choristers had a tun ing fork with two prongs, and they would strike it on the back of pew or muslo rack and put It to the ear and then start the tune, and all the other voices would join. In modern orchestra the leader has a com plete instrument rightly attuned and he sounds that, and all the other performers tune the keys of their instruments to make them correspond and draw the bow over the string and He ten, and sound it over again until all the keys are screwed to con cert pitch, arid the discords melt into one great symphony, and the curtain hoists, and the baton taps, and audiences are rap tured with Schumann's "Paradise and the Peri," or Rossini's "Stabat Mater," or Bach's "Magnificat" fn D. Now, our wceld can never be attuned by an Imperfect instrument Even a Cremo na would jiot da Heaven has ordained the only instrument, and It Is made out of the wood of the cross, and the voices that accompany It are imported voices, canta trices of the first Christmas night, when heaven serenaded the earth with "Glory to God In the highest, and on earth peace, good will to men." Lest we start too far off and get lost in generalities, we had bet ter begin with ourselves, get our own hearts and lives In harmony with the eter nal Christ Oh, for his almighty spirit to attune us, to chord our will with his will, to modulate our life with his life and bring ns Into unison with all that is pure and self sacrificing and heavenly 1 The strings of our nature are all broken and twisted, and the bow Is so slack It cannot evoke anything mellifluous. The Instrument made for heaven to play on has been roughly twanged and struok by Influences worldly and demonlao. O master hand of Christ, restore this spilt and fractured and despoiled and unstrung nature until first it shall wail out for our sin ana men inrni with divine pardon I . The Whole World Atttmed. The whole world must also be attuned by the same sower. I. was lp tbaPalr- Danes wetgnmg ante inauaiactory ol rer mant ilx hundred hands, and they nave lever bad a strike I Complete harmony be tween labor and capital, the operatives of scores of years In their beautiful home near by the mansions of the manufacturers, whose Invention and ChrUtlan behavior made the great enterprise. So, all the world over, labor and capital will be brought into euphony, iou may have beard what la called the "Anvil Chorus," composed by Verdi, tune played by ham mers, great and small, now with mighty stroke and now with heavy stroke, beating great Iron anvil.- That la what the world has got to come to anvil chorus. yardstick chorus, shuttle chorus, trowel chorus, crowbar chorus, pickax chorus, gold mine chorus, rail track chorus, loco motive chorus. It can be done, and it will be done; so ail social life will be attuned by the gospel harp. There will be aa many classes In society as now, but the classes will not be regulat ed by birth or wealth or accident, but by the scale of virtue and benevolence, and people will be assigned to their places as good, or very good, or most excellent So also commercial lite will be attuned, and there will be IS In every dozen and 16 ounces in every pound, and apples at the bottom of the barrel will be as sound as those on the top, and silk goods will not be cotton, and sellers will not have to charge honest people more than the right price because others will not pay, and goods will come to you corresponding with the sample by which yon purchased them, and coffee will not bechlcorled, and sugar will not-be sanded, and milk will not be chalked, and adulteration of food will be a state prison offense. Aye, all things shall be attuned. , Elections In England and the United States will no more be a grand car nival of defamation and scurrility, but the elevation of righteous men In a righteous way. Wonderful Christianity. In the sixteenth century the singers called the Fischer brothers reached the lowest bass ever recorded, and the highest note every trilled was by La Bastardella, and Cntallnl's voice had a compass of 8H octaves. But Christianity is more wonder ful, for it runs all up and down the great est heights and the deepest depths of the world s necessity, and It will compass ev erything and bring It in accord with the song which the morning stars sang at the laying of the world's cornerstone. All the sacred music in homes and concert hulls and churches tends toward this consum mation. Make it more and more hearty. Sing in your families. Sing in your places of business. If we with proper spirit use these faculties, we are rehearsing for the skies. Heaven is to have a new song, an en tirely new song. But I should not wonder if, as sometimes on earth, a tune is fash ioned out of many tunes, or it is one tune with the variations; so some of the songs of the redeemed may have playing through thorn the songs of earth. And how thrill ing, as coming through the great anther, of the saved, accompanied by harpers with their harps and trumpeters with their trumpets, if we should hear some of the strains of "Antioch" and "Mount Pis gah" and "Coronation" and "Lenox" and "St Martin's" and "Fountain" and "Ariel" and "Old Hundred!" How thoy would bring to mind the pray ing circles and communion days, and tho Christmas festivals, and the church worship in which on earth we mingled 1 I have no idea that when we bid farewell to earth -we are to bid farewell to all those grand old gospel hymns whlob melted and raptured our souls for so many years. Now, if sin is discord and righteousness is harmony, let us get out of the one and en ter the other. Jubilee of Peace. After our dreadful civil war was over, in the summer of 1860, a great national peace jubilee was held In Boston, and as an elder of my church hud been honored by the selection of some of bis muslo to be rendered on that occasion I accompanied him to the jubilee. Forty thousand people sat and stood in the great coliseum erected for that purpose. Thousands of wind and stringed instruments. Twelve thousand trained voices. The masterpieces of all ages rendered, hour after hour and day after day Handel's' Judas Maocatxeus," Spohr's "Last Judgment," - Beethoven a "Mount of Olives," Haydn'e "CreatioD,' Mendelssohn's "Elijah," Meyerbeer's Coronation March," rolling on and up in surges that billowed against the heavens. The mighty cadences within were ac companied on the outside by the ringing of the bells of the city, and cannon on the commons discharged by electricity, In exact time with the music, thundering their aw ful bars of a harmony that astounded all nations, sometimes I bowed my bead and wept Sometimes I stood np In the en chantment, and sometimes the effect was so overpowering I felt I could not endure it, especially when all the voices were In full chorus, and all the batons were in full wave, and all the orchestra in full tri umph, and 100 anvils under mighty ham mers were in full clang, and all the towers of the city rolled in their majestio sweet ness, and the whole building quaked with the boom of 80 cannon. Farepa Rosa, with a voice that will never again be equaled on earth until the archangellc voice proclaims that time shall be no Ion ger, rose above all other sounds in her ren dering of our national air, "TheStorSpan gled Banner." It was too much for mortal quite enough for an immortal to hear. And while some fainted, one woman ly spirit, released under its power, sped away to be w'th God. O Lord, our God, quickly usher in the whole world's peace jubilee, and all islands of the sea join the five continents, and all the voices and all the musical instruments of ail nations combine, and all the organs that ever sounded requiem of sorrow sound only a grand march of joy, and all the belle that tolled for burial ring for resurrection and oil the cannon that ever hurled death across the nations sound forth eternal vic tory. And over all acclaim of earth and minstrelsy of heaven there will be heard one voice sweeter and mightier than any human or angelio voice, a voice once full of tears, but now full of triumph, the voice of Christ, saying, "I am alpha and omega, the beginning ana -the end, the first and the last Then, at the laying of the top stone of the world's history, the same voices shall be heard as when, at the laying of the world's cornerstone, "the morning stars sang together. " In Noble county, Ind., there is a fathom less sea of Email area, to be sure of oil and salt water, from which gas escapes with a tremendous roar. Borne In the Middle Ages. In the middle ages Rome was any thing rather than a rich and industrious city. What especially struck strangers was its poverty, the mean aspect of its streets, the crumbling condition of its monuments and the rudeness of its peo ple. Luxury was almost unknown. The class of active, enterprising burghers who, living in plentiful ease in opulent homes, have secured the strength and prosperity of the cities of the north did not exist at Borne "ville de noblesse et de clericature." Between the populaoe and the nobility there was nothing. While Milan, with its brilliant court and 200,000 inhabitants, equaled, it was said, Paris in splendor, while Florenoe was pre-eminently the city of luxury and art, while the riches of the orient were displayed on the quays and in the shops of Venice, while life at Naples was gay)! prodigal and dissolute, tho capital of the popes remained rude and poor. Kodocanachl. THE DOG CEMETERY. A SEXTON RELATES SOME CURIOUS FACTS CONCERNING IT. Costly Moaoseeats Erected Over Pop by Thalr SeaUmaataU Onen Po etical Epitaphs aad Biblical Text Settinf; Porth the Virtue at the Departed. Toilet clubs are not the only luxury that dogs enjoy in common with man kind; they are pampered also with cemeteries. On the northwestern outskirts of Lon don, in a fine old country mansion, surrounded by extensive grounds, lives and labors one of the wealthiest and most fashionable of veterinary surgeons, who numbers among his customers va rious members of the royal family, many persons of title and distinguished lead ers of society in fact, his prices are so handsome that ordinary middle class mortals cannot afford to avail them selves of his servioes. He is a dog specialist, leaving all the remainder of the animal kingdom in the nands of other practitioners, and the fact that he has made a very comfort able fortune justifies him in his exclu siveness. And not rnly will he tend the canine species whr:i t i cy are ailing, but he is prepared to i r them when they die and to bury ti-ia, moreover, with the most gratifying pageantry and decorum. The cemetery reserved for this pur pose is in a corner of a field on his estate; but, being inclosed by a wall and planted about with trees, nothing of the interior is visible either from his own windows or from any point of the surrounding country, so that few, if any, of the neighbors are aware that such a place of sepulcher exists in the midst of them. "Some of the dawgs buried here," said on attendant, showing the favored inquirer round, "died while we had 'em under treatment in horspital, as you may say, but many of em died in their own homes and was brought as much as six and seven miles to their funeral. The headstones and monuments in this singular cemetery are as large and often as costly as any placed above the average human body, and the epitaphs on them are not infrequently quite as eulogistic "This one here," observed the attend ant, pointing out a particularly neat and well kept grave with a red marble obelisk at tho head of it, "is. where two pug dawgs were buried. They belonged to on old lady who brought 'em over with her from Paris. She had 'em for several years, and we wore always be ing called in to doctor 'em, though they were always suffering from nothing but overfeeding. At last one day they were both taken ill together they d eaten something as wasn't good for 'em and they died. She was dreadful cut up about it she couldn't have been more so if they'd been children and she had 'em buried here in two as neat little airtight coffins as ever you see. She comes every now and then on a vis it, and she pays our gardener 25 shil lings a year extra specially to water the flowers she planted on the grave and keep it all tidy., Now, here we have whot you may coll a family vault, which belongs to a nobleman, as you see for yourself on the tablet over the doorway. It's deep and lined with bricks, and you go down into it by a flight of steps. There's six dawgs down on the shelves already in lead lined coffins. If yon look through the grating in the door, youll see the names and ages on the stone that covers the opening. His lordship's uncommon fond of his dawgs, and whenever a fresh one dies it's brought np here and the vault's opened for it We've another vault like this, which we'll come to presently, only it belongs to a lady. "Oh, yes; I think I may say every dawg is buried in a box of some sort and a fair proportion of 'em in proper coffins, brass mounted and everything. You'd hardly believe how some of the owners will cry at the funeral, it s mostly ladies that bury their pets here, of course. As a rule, they've got more sentiment about this sort of thing than men have. Nearly all of 'em come reg ular for tie first few weeks with wreaths and bunches of flowers, but the majority of 'em begin to drop that after a month or two. Though there's a dawg buried yonder see that flat stone with a railing round it? the old lady has come on the anniversary of his death every year since I've been here, and that's nigh eight years now, and she seems as sorry about him still as if he d been a Christian like me and you.' Another remarkable feature of this cemetery is that, besides the names and ages of the dogs interred and in many instances flattering records of their vir tues, some of the tombstones are inscrib ed with poetical quotations and, incred ible as it may sound, even with Biblical texts. London Tit-Bits. Calamitous, One day a Dutchman, in his shirt sleeves, was shaving himself before the glass. His hand trembled so that he cut off the tip of his nose. The pain caused him to drop his razor, which fell on his foot and cut off a portion of his big toe. He promptly picked np the two fragments, applied them, still worm, to the open sores and bound them up. A fortnight later, on removing the band ages, he discovered to his horror that he had made a mistake. He had put the toe in the place of his nose and vice versa. Now when he wants to scratch his nose he is obliged to take off his boot Schwabische Tagwacht.
