llr. Tiilmago's tcmnn today was on

glvtlnthie." Following Is iho sermon In

Jan. 3, lSSfl ' Tho old nlmantcs and the
old memorandums Hung aside. I'.vorj thing
lo remind us of tho fact that another vol
timo lu tbo history of tlmo has begun, and
every thoughtful man and woman at such
tlmo discusses tho length ot tbo shortness
of human life. Faithful dlseharso of duty
Is in my text set forth as having much to
do with tbo length of our earthly stay.
Through tho mlstnko ot Its friends religion
has been cblclly associated with sick-beds
aud gravejards. This wholo subject tu
many pcnplo Is odorous with chlorlno
aud carbolic acid, Thero aro people who
cannot pronounce tho word " religion "
without hearing In It tho clipping chisel of
tbo tombstone cutter. It Is lilgh tlmo that
this thing wcro changed, and that ullglon,
Instead of being represented as a hcarso to
carry out tho dead, should bo represented
as a chariot In which tho living aro to tri
umph. Kcllglon, so far from subtracting
from ono's vitality, Is a glorious nddltlou.
11 is sanative, curative, uygiiuic. liisgood
for tbo oyes, good for tho cars, good for tbo
spleen, good for the digestion, good for the
nerves, good for tho muscles. When David
lu tho 1'salms prays that religion may bo
dominant bo docs not speak of tt as a mild
sickness or an emaciation or au attack of
moral and spiritual cramp; ho speaks of It
as "tho saving health of all nations," whlto
Clod pronounces long llfo to tho pious, say
ing ! With long llfo will I satisfy thco."
Tlio fact Is that men and women die too
soon. It Is high tlmo that religion Joined
tbo baud of medical scleuco In attempting
to improvo human longevity. Adamllvod
030 years. Jlcthusaleh lived OO'J years.
As lato In tbo history of tho world as
Vcepaslau thcic wcro at ouo tlmo In his cm
plro forty-five pcoplo 103 j ears old. So far
clow 11 as tho sixteenth century Fcter Zartm
died at ISSvcarsof age. I do not say that
religion will cvor tiko tho raco back to on
tcdlluvlaulongovlty,hut I do say tlio length
ot bumau llfo will bo greatly Improved, It
Is said in Isaiah Uvso-"Tho child shall
dlo a hundred Jcars old." rtow. If, ac
cording to tho Scriptures, tho child Is to bo
a hundred 3 cars old, may not tho men and
women reach to COO and JOO and 600 The
fact Is that w 0 are incro dwarfs aud skele
tons compared w 1th somo of the generations
that aro to come.
Tako tho African raco. Thoy hiv 0 been
under bondage for centuries, (ilvothcmu
cbanco aud they would develop n Frederick
Douglass or a Tousealnt l'Ouv erturo. And
If tlio white raco shall be brought out from
under the serfdom of sin, what shall bo tho
bodj? What shall bo the soulr Hellglou
has only Just touched our world. Glvo It
full power for a few centuries, and who can
tell w bat w 111 bo tbo strength of man and tho
beauty of woman, nud tbo long llfo of all?
My design Is to showy 011 that practical
religion Is tho filcnd of long life, and I
provo It first froui tho fact that It makes
thoenreot our phv steal health a posltlvo
Clulstlan duty. vVbcthoi wc shall keep
early or lato bonis, whether we shall tiko
food digestible or Indigestible, whether
thcro shall ho thoiough or Incomplete mas
tication, aro questions very often deferred
to tho realm of whlinslcalityibut tho Chris
tian man lifts this wholo problem of health
Into tbo accountable and tbo dlvlno. Ho
eaje: "Cod has given mo this body and ho
has called it tbo tcmplo ot tho Holy Ghost,
and to defaco Its altars, or mar Its walls, or
crumble Its pillars, Is a God-dcfjlng sacri
lege." Ho sees God's callgiaphy in ovcry
pago, anatomical aud physiological. Ho
sa)s: "God has given mo a wonderful body
for noblo purposes." That arm with thirty
two curious bones, wielded by forty-sis:
curious muscles, and all under tbo bralu
telegraphy ;thrco hundred and fifty pounds
of blood rushing through tho heart ovcry
hour; tbo heart In twenty-four hours beat
ing ono hundred thousand times; during
tho tvv cut) -four hours overcoming resist
ance amounting to 221,000,000 pounds
weight; during tbo samo time tho
lungs taking in flfty-soven hogsheads of
air; and all this mechanism not moro
mighty than dcllcntu and easily disturbed
aud demolished. Tlio Christian mansajs
to himself; "If I hurt my nerves, If 1 hurt
my brain, If I hurt any of my phjalcal
faculties, I Insult God ami call for dire ret
ribution." Why did God toll tho Lovitos
not to offer to blm In sacrifice animals Im
perfect or diseased? I!emcanf,to tell us in
nil tho ages that wo aro to offer to God our
very best pbvslcal condition, and a man
w ho through Irregular or gluttonous eatlug
rutus his health Is not ollerlng to God such
a sacrifice. Why did Paul wrlto for his
cloak at Troas? Why should such a great
man as I'aul bo anxious about a thing so
Insignificant as an overcoat? It was bo
catiso bo know that with pneumonia and
ibeumatlsm ho would not bo worth halt as
much to God and tho church as with res
piration easy and foot free.
An intelligent Christian man would con
sider It an absurdity to kneel down at night
aud pray and ask God's protection, while at
tho same tlmo ho kept tbo windows of his
bedroom tight shut ngalnst fresh air, He
would Just as soon think of going oukon
tho brldgo betw ecu New York and IU, Jk
l)ii, leaping off and then praying to Gnd to
keep him from getting hint. Just as long

somo compromise will bo the actual result

The President said he had no means of know

which bad now passed be) ond his control or
direction. Ho hud not tho slightest wish or
desire to Influence In nuywaytbo considera

the only prnelh id was to pass a bill woul 1 ho
