The awkward and irritating mode of trying to comfort people in trouble is here sot forth by Dr. Talmag", and a better way of dealing with broken hearts is recommended. Text, Job xvi., 2: "Miserable comforters are ye all." The man of Uz had a great many trials the loss of his family, the loss of his property, the lobs of his health; but the most exasperating thing that came upon him was the tantalizing talk of those who ought to have sym pathized with him. And looking around upon them, and weighing what they had said, he utters the words of my text. Why did God let sin come into the world? It is a question I often hear discussed, but never satisfactorily an swered. God made the world fair and beautiful at the start If our first pa rents had not sinned in Eden they might have gone out of that garden and found 50 paradises all around the earth Europe, Asia, Africa and North and South America so many flower gardens or orchards of fruit, redolent and luscious. I suppose that whea- God poured out the Gihon and the Hiddekel He poured out at the same time the Hudson and Susquehanna; the whole'earth was very fair anil beauti ful to look upon. Why did it not stay so? God had the power to keep back sin and woe. Why did He not keep them back? Why not every cloud roseate, and every step a joy, and every sound music, and all the ages a long jubilee of sinless men and sinless women? God can make a rose as easily as lie can make a thorn. Why, then, the predominance of thorns? He can make good, fair ripe fruit as well as gnarled and sour fruit. Why so much, then, that is gnarled and sour? He can make men robu-it in health. Whj", then, arc there so many invalids? Why not have for our whole race perpetual leisure instea 1 of this tug and toil and tussle for a livelihood? I will tell you why God let sin come into the world when I get on the other aide of the river of death. That is the place where such questions will bj answered and such mysteries solv ed. He who this side that river at tempts to answer the question only illustrates his own ignorance mid in competency. All I known is one great fact, and that is, that a herd of woes has come in upon us, trampling down everything fair and beautiful. A sword at the gate of Eden and a sword at every gate. More people under the ground than on it. The graveyards in vast majority. The six thousand winters have made more sears than the six thousand sum mers can cover up. Trouble has taken the tender heart of this world in its two rough hands and pinched until the nations wail with the agony. If all the mounds of grave yards that have been raised were put side by side you might step on theni and nothing else going all around the world, and around again, and around again. These are facts. And now I have to say that in a world like this the grand est oecutation is that of giving con dolence. The holy science of impart ing comfort to the troubled wc ought all of us to study. There are many of 3-011 who could look around upon some of your very best friends, who wish you well, and are very intelligent, and yet be able truthfully to say to them in 3'our days of trouble: ''Miserable comforters are ye all.' I remark in the first place that very voluble people are incompetent for the work of giving comfort Bilda.l and Eliphaz had the gift of language, and with their words almost bothered Job's life out. Alas! for these voluble people that go among the houses of the alllieted, and talk, and talk, and talk, and talk. They rehearse their own sor rows, and then they tell the poor suf ferers that they feel badly now, but they will feel worse after awhile. Silence! Do yon expect with a thin courtplaster of words to heal a wouud deep as the soul? Step very gently around about a broken heart. Talk very softly around those whom God has bereft. Then go your way, A firm grasp of the hand, a compassion ate look, just one word that means as muclwis a whole dictionary. andj'QU have given, perhaps, all the comfort that a soul needs. A man has a terri ble wound in his arm. The surgeon comes and binds it up. ''Now," he says, "carry that arm in a sling, and be verv careful of it Let no one touch it" But the neighbors have heard of the accident, and they come in, and they sav: "Let us see it" And the ba tillage is pulled off, and this one and that, one most feel it, and "see how much it is swollen, and there is irritation, and inflammation, and exasperation, where there ought to be healingand cooling. The surgeon comes in and says: "What does all this mean? You have no business to touch those band ages. That wound will never heal unless you" let it alone" So there are souls broken down in sorrow. What they most want is rest, or very careful and gentle treatment; but the neighbors have heard of the bereave went, or of the loss, and they come in to svmnathize. and they say: "Show us now the. wound. What were his last words? Rehearse now the whole scene. How did you feel when you found you were an orphan?" Tearing off the bandagos here, and pulling thorn off there, leaving a ghastly wound that the balm of God's grace had already begun to heal. Oh, let no loquacious people, with ever-rattling tongiu-s, go into the homos of the dis tressed! Again I remark: that all those pen sons are incompetent to give any kind of comfort who act merely as worldly philosophers. They come in and say: " hy, this is what you ought to nave expected. The laws of nature must have their war: and then they get elo quent over something they have seen in post-mortem examinations. Now away with all human philosophy at such a time. m Iia$.nrrerence does u ma Ice to that father and mother what disease their son died of? He is dead and it makes no difference whether the trouble was in the epigastric or hypogastric region. If the philoso pher be of the s local school. He will come and say: 'You ought to control your -feelings, lou must not cry so. You must cultivate a cooler temrera- ment You must have self-reliance self-government, self-control" t- an iceberg reproving a hyacinth for having a drop of dew in its eye. Avlolii ist has his instrument, and he sweej s his fingers across the strings, now evoking strains of yty, and now strains of sadnes. lie can m-t play ill the tunes on one strings. The hu man soul is an instrument of a thou sand strings, and all soi ts of emotions were made to play on it. Now an an them, now a dirge. It is no evidence of weakness when one is overcome of sorrow. Edmund Burke was found in a pasturelield with his arms around a horse'sneckcarcssinif him andsomeone said: "Why, the great man has lost his mind." No; the horse belonged to his. son who had recently died; and his great heart broke ever the grief. It is no sign of weakness that men are overcome of their sorrow. Thank God for the relief of tear.-. Have you never been in trouble when you could not weep, and you would have given any thing for a cry? David did well when he mourned for Absalom. Abraham did well when lie bemoaned Sarah. Christ wept for Lazarus, and the last man that I want to see come anywhere near me when I have any kind of trouble is a worldly philosopher. Again, I remark that those persons are incompetent for the work of com fort bearing who have nothing but cant to offer. There are those who have the idea that you must groan over the distressed and alllieted. There are times in grief when one cheer .'ul face, dawning upon a man's soul, is worth 1,000 to him. Do not whine over the alllieted. Take the promises of the Gospel, and utter them in a manly tone. Do not be afraid to suii e if you feel like it. Do not drive am more hearses through that poor soul. Do not tell him the trouble was fore ordained; it will not be any comfort to know.? that it was 1,000.000 years coming. If you want to find splints for a broken bono do not take cast iron. Uo not tell tnem it is tiou s justice that weighs our grief. They want to hear of God's tendi r merev. In otjier words, do not give them aqua fortis when they need valerian. Again I remark: that those persons are poor comforters who have never had any trouble themselves. A lark spur can not lecture on the nature of a snowflake, and those people who have always lived in the summer of pros perity can not talk to those who are frozen in disaster. God keeps aged people in the world, I think, for this very work of sympathy. They have been through all these trials. They know all that which irritates and all that which soothes. If there are men and women here who have old people in the house, or near at hand, so that they can easily reach them, I congrat ulate you. Some of us have had trials in life and although we have had many friends around about us. we have wished that father and mother were still alive that we might go and tell them. Perhaps they could not say much, but it would have been sueh a comfort to have them around. Thus.; aged ones who have been all through the trials of life know how to give condolence. Cherish them; let thcin lean on your arms, these aged people. If when you sp&ik to them, they can not hear just what 3-011 say the first timo, when you say It a second time do not say it sharply. If you do you will be sorry for it on the day when you take the last look and brush buck th -silvery locks from the wrinkled brow just be fore they screw the lid on. Blessed be God for the old peor-1 ! They may not have much strength to go around, but they are God's appointed ministers of comfort to a broken heart. People who have not had trial them selves can not give comfort to others. They may talk very beautifully and they mav give you a great deal o( poetic sentiment, but while poetry is perfume that smells sweet, it makes a very poor salve. If you have agrav in -a pathway, and somebody comes and covers it all over with flowers, it Is a grave yet. Those who have not had grief themselves know not the mystery of a broken heart. They know not the meaning of childlessness, and they having no one to put to bed at night, or the standing in a roomwher. every book and picture and door are full of memories the door mat where she sat, the eup out of which she drank the place where she .stood at the door and clapped her hands the odd figures that she scribbled the blocks she built into a house. Ah! no, you must have trouble yourself before you can comfort trouble in others. But come all ye who have been bereft an.1 ye who have been comforted In your sorrows, and stand around these at' flietc.l souls and say to them: "I had that very sorrow myself. God eom forted me and He will comfort you;' and that will go right to the spot In other words, to comfort others wc must have faith in God, practical ex perience and good, sound common sense. But there are three or four consider ations that I will bring to those who are sorrowful and distressed, and that we can alvvavs bring to tli.-m, knowin that they will effect a cure. And the first consideration is that God sends our troubles in love. I ofter luar pjo- 'ple in their troubles say: "Why, I wonder what God has against me.' They seem to think God has som grudge against them because trouble and misfortune have com . Oh, no. Do you not remembjr that pas sage of Scriiiture: "Whom the Lord loveth He chasteneth?" A child comes in with a very bad splinter in its hand, and vou try to extract it It is a very painful operation. The child draws back from you, but you persist You arc going to take .that splinter out, so you take that child with a gentle but firm grasp, for al though there may be pain in it. the splinter must come out. And it is love that dictates it and makes you per sist. My friends, I really think that all our sorrows in this world are onby the hand of our Father extractins some thorn. If all these sorrows were sent by enemies. I would say, Arm your selves against them; and as tropical climes when a tiger comes down from the mountains and carries a child from the village, the neighbors band together and go into the forest and hunt the monster, so I would have you. if I thought these misfortunes wore sent bv an en mv. go out anil battle against them. But no, they come from a Father so kind, so loving, so gentle, that the prophet speaking of his teqderness and mercy', drops the idea of a father anil says, "as one whom his mother comforteth, so will I comfort'you." Again I remark there is comfort in the thought that God by all thii pro cess is going to make you useful.

I once went through an ax factory, ind I saw th.-m tako tli bars of iron nd thru-.t them into the terrible fur :'i:es. Tlu-n b -sweated workmen with ong tongs stirred the blaze. Then hey brou ght out a bar of iron and put t in a crushing machine, and then they put it between jaws that bit it in twain. Then they put it 0:1 an anvil. and there were great hammers swung by machinery each one half a ton in weight that went thump! thump! thump! If that iron could have spoken I it would have said: "Why all th's beating? Why must I be p uinileo aiy more than any other iron?" The workman would have said: "We want to make axes out of you keen, sharp axes axes with which to hew down the forest, and build the ship, and erect houses, and carry on a thousand enterprises of civilizition. That is the reason we pound you." Now, God puts a soul into the furnace of trial, mil then it is brought out and run through the crushing machine, and it comes down on the anvil and upon it, blow after blow, blow after blow, until the soul cries out: "O, Lord, what does all this mean?" God says: "t want to make something very u-eful out of you. You shall be something to hew with and something to build with. It is a practical process through which 1 am putting you." Yes, my Christian friends, we want more tools in the church of God; not more wedges to split with. We have enough of these. Not more bores with which to drill. We have too many bores. What we really want is keen, sharp, well-tempered ax 'S, and if there be any other way of making them than in the hot furnace, and on the hard anvil, and under the heavy ham mer, I do not know what it is. Re member that if God brings any kind of chastisement upon you, it is only to make you use. ill. Do not sit down dis couraged and say: "I have no more reason for living. I wish I were dead." Oh, there nevor was so much reason for your living as now! Bv this or deal vou have been consecrated a priest of the most high God. Go out mil do your wnulc work for the Mas ter, Again, there is comfort in th3 thought that all our troubles are a rev elation. Have you ever thought of it in that connection? The man who has nevv-r been through chastis iinent is ig norant about a thousand things in his soul he ought to know. For instance. here is a man who prides himself on his cheerfulness of character. Ho has no patience with anybody who is depressed in spirits. Oh, it is easy for him to be cheerful, with his fine house, his filled wardrobe, and well strung instruments of music, and tapestried parlor, and plenty of money in the bank waiting for soma permanent invjstment. It is easy for him to be cheerful. But suppose his fortune goes to pieces, and his house goes down under the sheriffs ham mer, and the banks will not have anything to do with his paper. Sud- pose those people who were once ele gantly entertained at his table get so short-sighted that they can not recog nize him upon the street. How then? Is it so easy to be cheerful? It is easy to be clurerful in the home, after the day's work is done, and the gas is turned on, and the house is full of romping little ones. But suppose the piano is shut because the fingers that plaved on it will no more touch tho keys, and the childish voice that asked so many questions will ask no more. Then is it so easy When a man wakes up and finds that his resources are all gone he begins to rebel; and he savs: "God is hard: God is outrageous. He had no busi ness to do this to me." My friends those of us who have been through trouble known what a sinful and re bellious heart wc have, and how much. God has to put up with, and how much we need pardon. It is only in the light of a llammg furnace that wo can learn our own weakness and our own lack of moral resource. STANFORD. The folding-bed victim, Mr. Ashurst, died a few days ago.
