REV. DB. TALMAGE.
Tha Emheat Brooklyn Divine's Sun?
day Sermon.
"?iiil'Ject: ?'Xlie Truth Almut K?iH?la."
TaXT: "iVe-sii/iinr-iou? are they, self
Hilled: they are not afutiA to speak ei il
of dignities."?II Peter ii., 1".
Among a most reprehensible crew Peter
here paint? by one stroke the portrait of
those who ?Jelight to slash at people in au?
thority. Now we all have a right to criti?
cise evil behavior, whether in high place? or
low, but the fact that one is high up is no
proof that he ought to be brought down.
It is a bad streak of human nature now, as
it was in the time of the text a bad streak
of human nature, that succjss of any kind
excites the jealous antipathy ot those who
cannot climb the same steep. There never
was a David on tbe throne that there was
not some Absalom who wanted to get it.
There never was a Christ but the world ha 1
saw and hammer ready to fashion a cross
on which to assassinate Hin.
Out of this evil spirit grow not only indi?
vidual but national and international def?
amation. To no country has more injustice
been done than to our own in days that arc
pa?t. Long before "Martin Chuzzfewitt" was
printed the literature of the world scoffed at
everything Amerie-an. Victor Hu,'<>, n?
honest as he was unequaled in literary
power, was so misinformed concerning Amer
ii-a that he wrote: 'The most singular thing
h the need of whittling, with which all
Americans are possessed. It is such that on
-Sunday they give the sailors little bit? of
wood, because it they did not they woulel
whittle the ship. In court, at th9 moat
critical moment, the ju leo, whittling, ?ays:
'Prisoner, are you guilty:'" an i the accused
tranquilly responls, whittling, 'I am not
??uilty.' "
Lord John Rus.?e!l c.illel us "a bubble
bursting nationality." But otar c mntry has
at last recovered from such caricature, an 1
there is not a street in any city of Europe
or Asia where tbe word "America'' will not
w n deference. But there is a sister nation
on the other sitie of the sea now going
through the process of international datam?
ation. There is nocountry on earth so mis?
understood as RiiT-ria, and no monarch more
misrepresented than it, emperor. Will it
not be in the cause of imtic? if I try to set
right the minds o? th ?se who comprise this
august assemblage and the minds of those to
whom, on both sides of the ocean, these
words shall corut' If the slander of one
??erson is wicked, then the slanler of one
hundred and twelve million people is one
hundred and twelve million times more
wicked.
lu the name of righteousn"??=. anl in be?
half of civilization, anl for the en'ouragee
roent of all tho*e gooJ people who have
been dishearten.*! by the scandalizUion of
Russia, I now speak. But Russia is so vast
a subject that to treat it in on? discourse i?
like attempting to ru-? N.agira Falls oavr
one raid wheel. Do not thin?* tint the very
naked courtesies extended m? by the ein?
fror and empress of Ku*?ia have conp'i
inentel me into tho alvo,* icy of that em?
pire, for 1 shall present you authenticat.? i
facts that will ravers? your opinion?, if they
have been antagonistic, as mine were re?
versed.
I went last summer to Russia with as
many baleful preju lice.? as would make an
avalanche from toe mountain of fabric ition
which has for year? been heaped up against
that empire. You ask ho?v is it pcvsib'.e
that such appal'iln.? misr?; r.-sentations of
Russia coulej .?-tau i - 1 a.rou'it for it by the
fact that the Russian Ian-; l?ge is to mot
an impassable wall. Maliga th? United
States or malign Urea' Britain ir Germany
or France, and by the next ca'jlo^ram the
fal-sehovl i? ? ? -ve all tiiiierstind
English, anl in an v of our peooleare farnrli n
with German and French. But the Russian
language, beautiful a-ilea?.* t? th?sebor.i
to speak it, is to most TO :*i uu
pronouncablo t mgu?, an 1 i: at S: I
Durg or Mose.*??* any auti-Ru-siau calumny :
were denied themastof the wjrli outside of j
Russia would never see or hear the denial. !
What are the motive? for misrepresenta?
tion? Commercial interests and int??nri
tional jealou?ly. Russia is as lar-e as all
the rest o* Earop? pat together. Remember
that a nation is only a man or a woman on
a big scale. Go into any neighborhood of
America and ask the p'iy>k-ian who ha? a
practice what he t links of the physi?
cian who has a large practice. Ask a lawyer
who has no briefs what he thinks of th-? law?
yer who has three rooms tilled with clerks
trying in vain totransact the superabundant
business that comes to him. Ask the minis?
ter who has a very limited au lien?? What
he thinks of the minster who has over?
flowing aullen ? m.
Why does not Europe like Russia'- Bc
r-iu-e sh? has enough acreage to swallow all
Europe and feel she had only half a meal,
i ?s a? rong as North an 1 South America
put together. "But," ?ays same ou?, "do
you mean to charge the author and the lec?
turers who have written or spoken agiin,t
Russia with ?alsehooi*?'* By no means. You
can find in any city or nation evilsinnu n.r
able if you wish to discourse about them.
, I saiJ at St. Petersburg to the most emi?
nent lady of Russia outside of the imperial
family, "Are thoie stories of cruelty and
outrage that 1 have heard and read about
true.?" She replied: "No doubt some of
them are true, but do you not in America
ever have officers of the law cruel and out?
rageous in their treeatment of offender, 1) 1
you not have instances where the police
have clubbed innocent persons: Have you no
instances where people in brief authority
act arrogantly ?" I replied, "Yes, we do."
T?en she said; ' Why do?s the world bold
our government responsible for exceptional
outrages- As soon as an official is found to
be cruel he immediately loses his place."
Then I bethought myself, Do the people in
America hold the Government of (Tastilng
tou responsible for tbe Homestead riot? or
for railroad insurrection-?, or forth? tur, 1
of the villian that consumes a block of
houses, or for Km ruffians who arrest a rail
train, making the passengers bold up their
arms until the poc :ets are picted:- Why,
then hold the emperor of Russia, who is as
impressive and genial a man as 1 h ive ever
looked at or talked with, responsible for the
wrongs enacted in a nation with a popula?
tion twice as large ia r? nbers as the mill?
ions of America? Suppose one monar-h in
Europe ruled over England, Se- >tlan I, Ire?
land Franc?, Germauv, Spaiu, Italy, A'i?
tria, Norway and Sweden.
Would it be fair to hold the monarch re?
sponsible fol* all that occurred in that
mighty dominion Now vo-j mu,t remem?
ber that Alexander tbe Tnlrd reign* over
wider dominion than a!1 those empire? put
together. A* a nation is only a man or a
woman on a big scale, let me ask, would
you individually prefer to bo ju Ige 1 by your
faults or your virtu >s? All people except
ourselves have faults.
The pessimist attempting to write your
biography would take you in your a
moods, and tbe picture of you on the first
?of your biography would be as you
?d after ?ome meannee, had been prac
tie'-xl on you and you were tearing mal.
Now, as I am an optimist, 1 give you fair
warning that it 1 ever write your biography
I will take you as you looke I the day y oui
dividend came in twenty per cent, large
than you ever anticipated, or the mornin
on tout way to business after your flra
child wa? born, or the morning after youi
oonver-rion, when heaven had rolled in or
your ?oat. The most accursed homunculi o
all the earth are the pessimists, who
whether they hidge Individual or nation*
chai-actor, and whether th??y wield tongu'
or pen. are -ailed with anathematization
and who have more to ?ay about the freckle?
on the cheek of beaut*/ than of the sunris*
and sunsets that flush it.
It i? most important that this eountrj
have right ideas econcerning Russia, foi
among all the nations this side of heaven
Russia is America's best friend. There ha?
not been an hour in the last seventy-five
years that ttiu shipwreck of free institution,
in America would not have eallejd fort!
from all the despotisms of Europe ant
Asia a ?boat of gladness wide as earth an,
deep a? perdition. But whoever else falle,
U?, Hiiasia never did, and whoever else wa?
eloubtful, Russia never wa?. Kuscia, then at
old government, smiled on th? cradle of oui
government while yet in itseaarliejat infancy
Emprejw Catherine of Russia in 1776 01
thereabouts offered kindly interference that
our thirteen colonie? might not go down un
der tbe cruelties of war.
Again, in 1813. Russia stretchel forth to
ward us a rnerdf ul han 1. When our dread
ful civil war wa? ragin*- and the two thin
derdoods of northern and southern va!??t
clashed, Russia practically said to the na
tions of Europe. "K?aep your hands off an :
l"t the brave men of the north and the ?outh
?ettle their own troubles."' I rehearse?:
some of those sc?nos to the emperor las!
July, ?ayinft?, "You were probably to
young to remember the position your rathei
took at that time.'' but with radiant ?mill
he i*-?-pond?d "Oh, ye?. I remember, I re
member,'' and there was an accentuation of
the word? which demonstrated to m? that
those c-otjurrences had often been talked of
in the imperial household.
I stood on New York Battery during the
war, a* I suppose many of you did, looking
off through a magnifying glass up an a fleet
of Russian ship?. "What are they doin?
?liia-rer I aakei, and so every on? asked
"Whst busine-B have the Ru?sian warship*
in our New York harbor?' Word came thai
another fleet of Russian warships was 10
San Francisco harbor. "What doe* this
mean'" our ro?ers asked, but did not g?t im?
mediate an?wer. In the?-? two American
harbor? the Russian fleets seemed souni
asleep. Their great mouths of iron ?poke
not a word, and the Russian flag, whet
floating in the air or drooping by the fl
staff, made no answer to our in?juisitl
assa
William H. Seward, sscretary of sti
asked the Russian minister at washing
the meaning of those Russian ship? in An
ican waters and got no satisfactory
spouse. Admiral Farragut said to a Rusi
officer after dining in the home of the t
nent politician, Tnurlow Weed, that mi
and untnaker of presldeuts, "What are ?
doinx here with tho--) Russian vessels
war"' Not until the war was over wa?
found out that tu case of foreign inter?
tion all the guns and the last gun of tl
two fleets in New York and San Franc
harbors were to open in full diapason u?
any foreign ship that should dar? to in'
fere with the right of Americans, north i
south, to settle their owneontrovorsv
But for those fl jets and tluir prsSMMS
American waters there can be no do
that two of the mightiest nations of Eur
would have min?le i in our tight. Hut
those two fleets the American governm
would have been to-day only a name in i

that 1 believe Russia saved the Uni
States of America. Last July I stood

If the population of the rest of Europe w?
poured iuto Russia it would be only partial
occupied. After awhile America will bo
well populated that the ti tea of emigrati
will R?i the othar way, and by railroa

America?millions of people will pour do?

through all the regions waiting for t
civilisation of the next century
and culture great harvests an 1 buili inigb
cities.
What the I'uitei ?States now are on t
wwtern hemisphere Russia will be on t
eastern heniWpbera, Not only because
what Russia has bean 13 our republic, b
liecause of what she will be, let us coisa ti
defamation of all that pertains to that gre
empire. K Russia can afford to be the frie
of America, America can afford to be t
friend of Russia. And now I pro.*esi to ?
what I told the emperor and the eiipn
and all the imperial family at the palace
Peterho? I would do if I ever got back
America, and that is to answer some of tl
calumnies which have been announced ai
reiterated and sterteotyped against Russia.
Calumny the First?The emperor and t
the imperial family are in perpatual dr<-?
of assassination. Th .y aiv practically pr,
oners in the winter pala???*, and trenches ?il
dynamite have been found du? around V
winter palace. They dare not venture fort
exc**pt prtf'led and follow? 1 and sarrosa
e.l by a mo-t elaborate military guard.
My answer to this is that I never saw
face more free from worriment than the ec
peror's face. Tue winter nalact?, a rout,
which the trenches are said to have bex
f'iarged with dynamite, an I in which tl
imperial family are said to be prit

family one moment s-inco the present e:;
pt-ror bas been on the throne.
The winter pataca has b -en chsage 1 Int

of great levee*-. He spsnas his rammer i
the palace at Peterhof, fifteen or twent
miles from St. Petersburg; hi- autu uns t
the palace at Orat-chna, aud his winters i
a palace at ?St. Petersburg, but in quite
different part of the city to that occupie
by the winter palace. He rides through tl
streets unattended: except by the eainrei
at his side aud the driver on tho box. Thei

There are cranks in Russia. Lut have w

To go no further back than Nicholas, th
grandfather of the present emperor
Nicholas had for the dominant idea of hi
administration the emancipation of th.
serfs. When It was found that he pn?-n*di
tit-1th? freedom of the serfs ha receive?
the following letter of threat from a d?puta
tion of noblemen: "Your Imperial Ma jest.?
?-We learn that the council an 1 .-<?'
the empire have before them for delibera
ti it?, with your sanction, the plan to abolis!
seridom throughout the Russian empire,
We are perfectly willing to abide by yom
majesty's decision iu this matter anl t<
lo.ally support your will, but there are in
Russia a large number of small owners o
serfs who are dep-ndent for actual rabsttd
ence on the labor of those serf?, an 1 wh
coaseuuently will be left wholly pennfleei
and without any resource by the operatvn
of emancipation. They will then undoubte?ilj
resort to desperat; measure?, and in the ? *
treroity of their de-pair will put the life ol
your majesty in jeopardy."
The emperor replied in words that will
last as Ion? as history, "ueut'.emen, if 1
should die because of my devotion to such a
cause, I am willing to meet my fate.'' When,

posure to severe weather in th e service ol
his people, that emp-ror p?it d iwn his hea t
on the pillow of dust. Rnssii lost as good a
! monarch as was ever crown?. 1. Then cam?
[ Alexander the Second, father of the prsssnl
? emperor. Amid the migbti?>st opposition
? and innumerable prot?ts, h?, with on?:
stroke of his pen, emancipated twenty mil?
lion serfs, practically saying, ?'Go free, Bs
; your own masters, and this is for you and
i your children forever."
11 \ the day he was basely assassinate I
i (and I will parenthetically say that I saw
?rriage in splinters, as it looked when
| he stepped from it, not to save himself, but
! to look after some poor people o* the street
? who had bean hurt, and I saw the bed on
! which he died, the mattress yet crimson with
i his life's blood) ?on the day'he was assassin
I ated he bad on his table, found afterward, a

it had not been for the assassination he
I would bave soon lined that constitution,

as violence always does.
What a marvelous character ?if kin In-"
I was Alexwler theN-conl, the father of the
present emperor, so that the present em
p-ror. Alexander the Third, inherits his be

iahmeut was sufficient.
The same eup-ror, having beard I
poet bad written a poem defamatory of hi?
empress, ordered the po?t into bis presence.
] Expecting great sev-rity, the poet entered
the palace and found the emperor and tttf
? and dukes and duchn-ses gather?.'! to

a most beautiful poem, and i have sent for

cried out, ".send me to Sioeria or do any?

fa i no flatter.
Calumny the Second?If you go to Russia
you are under severe-t ????pionaif ??, stopjie I
here and ?--uistwa?**i thsia, an i in danger of

Depend upon it, if hereafter a m in I

police of St. Petersburg or Moscow it is 1

In the quicksilver mines of Siberia?the

fourth of the miners are criminal?. Th*
other three-fourth? go there because tbey
choose It as a place to earn their living.
After being in Siberia awhile the con?
demned go to earning a livelihood, and they
come to own their own farms and orchards
and vineyards, many of these peopl? coming
to wealth, and thousands of th mi under no
inducement would leave those parts of
Siberia which are paradises for salubrity
and luxuriance. Now which do you think
is the best style of a prison?Sibertaor many
of our American prisons? When a man
commits a big crime in our country, the
ju ige looks into the frighteil face of the cul?
prit and says, "You have b??en found guilty;
I sentenca vou to the peunitentiarv for ten
years." He goes to prison. He is shut in
between four walls. No sunlight. No fresh
air. No bathroom. Before ho has served
his ten years he dies of consumption or i? so
enervated that for the rest of his life he sits
with folded hands?a wheez ng invalid.
In preference to the shut in life of the
average American prisoner, give me Si?
beria. Besides that, when offenders ?*orae
out of prison in America, what chanco bave
t.iey? Ask the poorly supported societies
formeil to get these people places for work.
Ask me, to whom the newly liberated c">:n?

shall do. No one will ?? nun 'ii I them. Tas
pallor of incarceration is on their cheek.
Who wanb to employ in factory or stora a
man or woman who, in answer to the ?pios?
ti?n: "Where did you live last*** should
make for reply : "State's prison at Auburn
or Moyani?n.-.ni''" Now in Siberia they
have a better chanca. They are never spoken

they are alloue 1 every opportunity of re?

"Wonder? ?tvilh figure?. -
A committee of lhe French Acade?
my has recently investigated the
latest of mathematical prcvd igles,
Jacques lnaudi by name, and a writ?
er In the Re-yiie dal Deux M /tides
offers an Interesting account 0/ the
lnaudi, who Is now 25 years
old, is of poor family, and his child?
hood was spent in laking care of
iheep. His extraordinary mathe?
matical genius showed itself when
he was 6 years o'd. His older broth?
er had taught him to ?-?Hint, hut so
far as Is known did not teach him
the multiplication table. At that
time neither of the boys could read.
Within a year Jacques could multi?
ply In his head numbers containing
Bve figures each.
The c)lrie>r brother ??'.on left home
sn a barrel-organ trip, and Jacques
iccnnipanied him. to collect the pen?
ales and exhibit his skill at figure?.
Not long afterward a showman en?
gaged him. and he ruade his first
appearance* in Paris.
His wonderful performances are in
lidltlon, subtraction, multiplication,
Jivision, and the extraction of rooU.
When a probten* is given to him
he listens, repeats it, says. "I begin,"
falls to muttering rapidly to himself,
tnd presently says, "I am done," and
announce? the result.
While he is engag?e! in the calcu?
lation nothing disturbs him. and he
alll answer questions and even carry
>n conversation during (he process?
;hat Is to say, while he Is multiply?
ing lu his head eight figures by eight
figures, or reckoning the numbe.r of
seconds In h given term of years,
months, days, and hours! In the
same way he will add in a few sec
DDdl seven numbers of eight or ten
figures ea'-h. or extr.n*t 111" sixth or
seventh root.
If. Binet. the writer of the Revue
article, believes that the case fur?
nishes strong confirmation of the
theory cif "partial memories" -memo?
ries, that is, for particular classes of
*?bject*. lnaudi will repeat after
you twenty-five figures, while an or?
dinary man could n'?t repeat more
than from seven to ten. If letters
are given to lnaudi, however, he can?
not repeat more than seven or eight.
It Is believe 1 furthor that his MM
indicates the fad that there is such
a thing as an "auditive" as well as a
"visualizing" memory. Most mathe?
matical prodigies have professed to
see. mentally, the figures with which
they had to do, while lnaudi invari?
ably declares that he does not s?e,
but hears them. This goo? with his
hal-it of whispering or muttering to
himself during the operations, and it
has been n-iti'-ed that if he tries not
to whisper bo is mu?'h longer in
reaching hi? result.
At some time since he was 13 yean
old lnaudi ha?, learned to read and
writ??, but even now. we are told, bis
education in many respects Is only
rudimentary.

THE EMPHESs OF RUMIA.
The Empress of Russia is as slender
aud petite as the Czar is strong and
massive. She is not beautiful and not
j homely. Her nose is slightly retrousse,
hut her features are otherwise well
formed, and her eyes are bright and
kindly. She is one of the most beauti?
ful dancers in Russia, and she is as fond
of dancing as a Danish country girl.
At the winter palaco in St. Peters
burgll are given each year some of the
? most wonderful halls in the world.
j Seven thousand people can live in this
palace, and tic thousands of dancers
1 trip the light futattic toe over floors of
\ ebony, of rosewood and ivory. Now
i and then the Empress appears at th?se
dances in her royal robes. She wears a
' gorgeous crown which fairly blazes with
diamonds.
Her necklace is of many strands of
the purest pearl?, and her vest is a ma's
of rubies, sapphires and diamonds, put
together so that they blaze like fire.
Due of her gowns is of emerald velvet
??tha train of white velvet, which is
fairly covered with gold embroidery,
' and the front of which is linked witL
! strands of the purest coral.
The jewels on one of these robet
1 would make an American village rich,
. snd their value surpasses computation.
In the treasury at Moscow I saw the Em
j presses coronation robe. Tbe train ol
? this was of woven silver, and there wai
enough of wpven silver cloth in the robe
to have carpeted an ordinary parlor.
Her majesty's foot has a high instep,

FASniON .NOTES.
The lotus flower is the fashionable one
at present, and makes a charmiug
brooch in silver, gold, or enamel, es?
pecially the latter.
Full velvet sleeves, contrasting often
very vividly with the color of the gowns
they adorn, appear upon some of thi
newest autumn creations, both French
snd American.
A great novelty in the faced camel'i
i hair cloaking, in which the outside ii
usually of some of the beige tints, the
inner side showing old rose, blue green
or mauve tones.
Box plaits appear upon some of the
newest modes in dress skirts. Some ol
the plaits show at the back only, othen
in the front and on still others they form
a Watteau fold that reaches from the
neck to the hem in the back.
French capotes are of light colored
felt, which comes in squares for the pur
j pose, and are dented and twisted into
: most becoming shapes. Velvet and flow
? era trim them, and muffs of the felt,
?
pleated with velvet, are worn with them.
Borne of the new skirts in cornet shape
in the back and only medium in length
bave a rich trimming surrounding the
front breadth, which defines a tablier.
This trimming, in pointed passementerie
or cut-jet gimp, is repeated along thi
back teams.
A most charmiug bonnet, which will
be much in vo.-ue for evening wear, it
made of coarse white or black lace, and
fits the head exactly like the cap of s
French pestant. Velvet ribbon ties
cross it at the back, snd from under
them, coming toward the front, is t
huge rose, orch'd, tulip, or some other
I flower tbst may be made of velvet

Many stories have been written about

been more interesting and curious than
that of the BUeat City mirage, which
makes Its appearance near the Pacific
glacier, in Alaska. The discovery of
this wonderful mirage was male by the
Indians, who wou'd tell of the city which
was built In tho clouds. The mirage
can be seen in the early part of June

25,000 or 30,000 Inhabitants. As yet no
one has been able to identify it. although
several have elaln I to recognize the
place. There is no city like it in Alaska,
nor in any country about It for thous?
ands of miles. Some claim It is a city
In Russia, others say it is a city in Eng?
land, but none can tell where it Is. The

My aequaintan-ce with Bonce's
0**rman Syrup was made about four?
teen years ago. I contracted a cold
which resulted in a hoarseness and
cough which disabled me from fill
i ing my pulpit for a number of Sab
i baths. After trying a physician,
i without obtaining relief I saw the
advertisement of your remedy and
obtained a bottle. I received quick
| and permanent help. I never hesi?
tate to tell my experience. Rev. W.

be well. If you can get him

plump.
