It is impossible to come in contact
with anything grand or beautiful in
nrt, nnturc or religion, without being
profited nnd elevated. We go into the
nrt gallery, nnd our soul meets the soul
of the painter, and we hear the hum of
his forests and the clash of his contllctn,
ana see the cloud-blossoming of tho sky
and the foam-blossoming of the ocean;
and we corao'out from the gallery better
men than when we went in. We po
into the concert of music and are lifted
Into enchantment; for days after our
fcoul seems to rock with a very tumult
of joy, as tho sea, after a long stress of
weather, rolls and rocks nnd surges a
great while before it comes back to its
ordinary calm.
On tho same principle it is nroflioble
to think of Heaven, nnd look off'upon
that landscape of joy and light which
SU John depicts; the rivers of gladness,
the trees of life, the thrones of power,
the eommingllngs of everlasting love.
I wish this morning that I could bring
Heaven from the list of iutangles, and
inako it seem to you ns it really is the
great fact In all history, the depot of all
ages, tho parlor of God s universe.
This account In ray text gives a picture
of Heaven as it is on n holiday.
Now If a man came to New York for
the first time on the day that Kossuth
arrived from Hungary, nnd ho saw the
arches lifted, and the flowers flung In
the streets and ho heard the guns
booming, he would have been very foolish
to suppo.se that that was the ordi
nary appearanco of tho city. While
Heaven is always grand and always
beautiful, I think my text speaks of a
gala day in Heaven.
It is a time of great celebration perhaps
of the birth or the resurrection of
Jesus; perhaps of the downfall of bomc
despotism; perhaps because of the rushing
in of the millennium. I know not
what; but it does seem to me in reading
this passage as if it were n holiday in
Ilcnvcn: "after this I beheld, nnd, lo, n
great multitude, which no man could
number of all nations, nnd kindreds,
and people, and tongues, stood before
the throne, and before tho Lamb, clothed
in white robes and palms in their
hands; and cried with a loud voice, saying,
Salvntion to our God w hlch sitteth
upon the throne, nnd unto tho Lamb."
I shall speak to you of the glorified in
Heaven their number, their antecedents
their dress, their symbols, and
their song. Jlut how shall I begin by
telling you of tho numbers of those in
Heaven? I have seen n curious estimate
by an Ingenious man who calculates
how long the world was going to last,
nnd how many people there are in each
generation, and then sums up the whole
matter, and bays he thinks there will be
twenty-seven millions of souls In glory.
I hare no faith in his estimate, I simply
take the plain announcement of the
text it is "a great multitude, which no
man can number."
Ever' few years in this country we
take a census of tho population, nnd it
is verycasy tp. tell how many people
there aro" In a city or in a nation; but
who shall give the census of the great
nation of the saved? It is quite easy to
tell how many people there nre in different
denominations of Christians
how many Itaptlsts and Methodists and
Episcopalians and Presbyterians; of all
the denominations of Christians wo
could make an estimate. Suppose they
were gathered in one great audience
room; how overwhelming tho spectacle!
Hut it would give no idea of tho great
nudlence room of Heaven tho multi
tude that bow down nnd that lift up
their hosannas. Why, they come from
all the chapels from all the cathedrals,
jrom all sects, from all ages; they who
prayed in splendid liturgy, and those
who in broken sentences uttered the
wish of broken hearts from Grace
church and sailor's bethel, from under
the shapeless rafters and from under
high-sprung arch "a great multitude,
that no man can number."
One of tho most impressive things 1

despise the beautiful apparel. Well,
what shall we wear in Heaven? "I saw
a "great multitude clothed In white
robes" It is white! In this world wo
had sometimes to have m working apparel,
llright nnd lustrous garments
would be ridiculously out of place sweltering
amid forges or mUlng paints, or
plastering ceilings or binding books
In this world we mu't have tho working

not how coirse it Is. It is appropriate;
but w hen nil the toil of earth Is past,
and there is no more drudgery and no
more weariness, we shall stand before
the throne robed In white.
On earth wc sometimes had to wear
mourning apparel blaek scarf 'for the
arm, black eil for the face, black
gloves for the hands, blnik band for the
hat Abraham mourning for Sarah;
Isaac mourning for Kcbocca; Hnchel
mourning for her children; David
mourning for Absnlom; Mary mourning

minute of every hour of every day a
heart breaks. The earth from mo to

sepulchral rent; nnd the eurth can
easily afford to bloom and blossom
when it is so rich with molderlng life.
Graes! graves! Hut when
these bereavements havo all passed,
nnd there are no more graves to dig,
and no more coffins to mnke, nnd no
more sorrow to sulTcr, we shall pull off
this mourning nnd be robed in white.
I see a soul going right up from all this
scene of sin and trouble into glory. 1

Innumerable host before tho throne,
crying "Salvation unto our God and
unto the Lamb." They crowd all the
temple, ithey b,cnd over the battlements,
they fill nil tho heights and
depths nnd lengths nnd breadths of
Heaven with their hosannas.
When people were taken Into tho
Temple of Diana It was such a brllllaut
room tint they wore always put on
their guard. Some people had lost their
sight b just looking on the brilliancy
of that room, nnij so the janitor when
he brought n stranger to the door nnd
let him In would always chnrgo him,
"Take heed of your eyes."
Oh! When 1 think of the song that
goes up around tho throne of God, so
jubilant, multitudinous
I feel like saj ing: "Take heed of your
cars." It Is so lond a song. It is so
blessed nn anthem. They sing a rook
song, saying, "Who is he that sheltered
us In the wilderness, nnd shadowed us
in a weary land?" And the chorus
comes in: ' Christ, tho shadow of a rock
In a weary land."
They sing a star song, saying, "Who
!a he thnt guideth us through the thick
night, and w hen all other lights went
out, arose in tho sky tho morning star,
pouring light on the soul's darknes?"'
And the chorus will come In: "Christ,
the morning star, shining on the soul's
darknovs," They will sing n flower
song, sn.wng: "Who is he that brightened
nil our way, and breathed sweet
ness upon our soul, and bloomed
through frost nnd tompost?" and tho
chorus will come in: "Christ, the lily
of the valley, blooming through fros
nnd tempest"
They sing a water song, saying:
"Who is he that gleamed to us from tho
frowning erag, and lightened the dark
est ravine of trouble, and brought cool
ing to the temples and refreshment to
the lip, lid was a fountain in the midst
of tho wilderness?" Anil then tho
chorus will come in: "Christ, the fountain
In the midst of tho wilderness"
My friends, will you join that anthem?
Shnll we innko rehenrsnl this
morning? If we can not sing that song
on earth we will not lie ablo to sing it
in Heaven. Can it be that our good
friends in that land will walk all
through that great throng of which I
speak, looking for us, and not finding
us? ill they eomo down to the gate
and ask if we hae passed through, and
not find us reported as having come?
ill they look through the folios of
eternal light and find our names unrecorded?
Is nil this a representation
of a land we shall never sec of n song
we shall never sing?

I do not think there is any other
country where political feeling, both
local and central, runs so high as in
Greece. Tills warmth of political passion
Is still more intensified by tho fact
that, in the choice of nil candidates in
this representative government, tho
family nnd its relntions of kinship form
the esscntinl guide. And when it is
borno in mind that nearly all tho offices,
local rind central, down to tho postmen
und tho attendants at museums, depend
upon the success of each party, nnd that
the family will nt once run to their

when he learns that tho republican

that something Is now deemed necessary

Apart from Us effect upon the negro

the introduction of the 'possum as the
of the republican policy
of protection and reciprocity. The salient
characteristic of the 'possum Is so

language with tho word '"possumlng"

therefore, the best of all symbols of

Slanfl. t'i lor the Right of
the IVople.
Tho democratic party has always held
that it Is the right of thecltixen to make
and control the government; that when
he is governed nt all against his consent
he Is governed unjustly, and that
ho cannot be justly governed in any re
spect without this consent, previously
expressed In the contracts created by
constitutions and by statutes made in
nccorlancn with them. It has alway
held that only such rights are to be surrendered
to the majority making and
administering the laws as are absolutely
essential to government for the
maintenance of peace and order. Beyond
this it denies that the majority
has a right to govern tho individual,
whom it holds to be free to regulate his
own morals, his own religion, hi own
business, hli own amusements, his own
education, his own food nnd drink, his
own habits of all kinds and the whole
conduct of his life without regard to
tho will of the majority so long and so
far to any extent whatever as he does
not disturb the peace of tho majority
and by his course rentier good order impossible.
The republican party holds now and
it has always held that the individual
has no rights which may not rightly be
taken from him by statute If he Is too
weak to prevent tho statute from being
enacted for his subjugutlon. In this
intemperate spirit of oppression It has
passed its prohibitory laws In tho name
nots, Wisconsin, Massachusetts and
other states it has nttempted by statute
to overthrow the freedom of education,
to forco tho Individual to abandon the
fight to obey his own conscientious
convictions; to compel liim to accept
tho dictum of politicians in the education
of his children; to send policemen
to interfere Iietwecn parent and child,
nnd to uso tho police power of the stale
to break down such schools, religious
nnd heeiiliir, nsaro not "authorized" l?
Th? declaration of tho Chicago platform
for freedom of education and
ngniiist this tyranny is strong and timely.
With tho rest of the platform It
constitutes an emphatic reaffirmation
of tho democratic tenet of Individual
liberty at u time when bigoted radicalism
in tho states und in tho I'nlted
States is going to extremes in denying'
that tho Individual litis any ri'ghts
which a party strong enough to suhju ,
gulo hlin, nnd take from him the llhcr '
ty of exorcising them is hound to respect
or even to tolerate.- St. Louis

President Harrison has the administration
uml the olllces to work with In
securing his election us well us his nomination,
but will It bo mi iidviiulngQ lu

to take a prominent part lii thu

for dissatisfaction w 1th tho president on
account of hi manner of dealing with

regard hi use of official powr to secure

and they vv 111 regard Its use to promote

Il will repel their support And apart
from Independents and pronounced reformers
tho people In gencrnl dislike
the Idea of a man occupying tho highest
office of publio trust using his official
power and Influence to perpetuate himself
in that office. It Is to tho extent of
Its effect an Interference with the people's
right to exercise a free choice.
We are inclined to think that It wilt
repel more votes than il will gain, nnd
thnt it will prove an ndvnntnge to tho
democratic party that it Is not In power,
snd that its candidate is not In office
