THE KUIILIMU'ON KHEIfi PUKSS ; TilUKSDAY. APRIL 9, 1008.
II Calm age Sermon By Uev. Frank Dc Witt Talmm'c, D. D. Now York, April 5. In this sermon tho preacher shows Unit (ho path or rectitude mid duty la t ho only rond to happiness, uo mnttcr how nlltirltiu; oth rr ways limy scorn to us at times. The text la l'salin .evil, 11, "Unlit Is sown for tin; righteous and Kindness for thu upright in licarl." This Is an unfamiliar molaplior. We nrc not accustomed to thltiUliif? of light lis of something that may In; sown, as Iho farmor sows Kraln In tho spring. IJslit comes from heaven to drive rwny the gloom of the night, to revive Industry, to start again the wheels of business life, to scatter the vultures, winded or human, that prey In the darkness. We are thankful to God for the light t hat ho sends to us every dawn. P.ut this conception that the psalmist utters, of light springing as a harvest from seed sown, is novel to us, It suggests thu Idea of the dark ness of sorrow or of trial, In which dod's children must live at times, contrasting It with the encouraging as mirnncc that Ucht Is sown for them wh ion. though It lies for a time hidden nuu burled, will yet germinate and j fruit to their gladness. This conception came to me with special forco us I considered the topic. It had been raining for five or six days. It seemed as though the heav ens were a porous sponge being squeez ed of oceans of moisture. Then came the glorious sunrise. It came In great tidal waves of llcht. It Hooded the earth, and It llooded the skies, and It Bank Into every pore of the Mesh. Oh, It was glorious! God did not say. "Hero is a little sunlight for you and a I' Me sunlight for some one ele," as though he was afraid of wasting it, but he seemed to Hood thu earth with light In lavish abundance. He seemed to Kay "Here Is llcht. oceans of llirht; light for the Mowers of the fields and for the birds of the air and for man's menl .1 and p'ly-ienl existence. Take It and 1 a the In it and grow In It and breathe it Here is the sun as a stel lar furnace burning with light." God gives many blessings, but he gives no blessing with richer abundance than when he rolls out for man the blessing of the sunlight. Then I turned and read the word of the text, "Light Is bowu for the righteous and gladness for the upright in heart." Sunshine Fcr All. God fulfills the promise of my text, In the first place, by the (ovulations lie gives to his children to solve the Intri cate and mysterious problems of na tuie. God seems to say to man, "If you love me and will honor mo, I will put the resources of the seas and of the valleys and of the hills and of the nlr nt your disposal." God gives liberally the blessings of nature to the race regardless of its moral conduct, j Summer and winter. seed time and harvest, sunshine and shower, are for all. As Christ said, "God causes his rain to fall on the Just and on the un just," and is kind to iho unthankful and the evil. Hut he has special bless ings for those who are described in this passage as the righteous and the upright In heart. He honors them with a more Intimate knowledge of his ways a closer acquaintance with na ture and a clearer view of the re sources of civilized life. "Well. I do not understand that," some one says to me. "If that Is true, how can you account for the fact that -ome of our greatest inventors did not believe In God or a hereafter or any supernatural power? The men who have explored for us tho wonders of nature have not always been believers In revelation. Then, besides, Fome of tile most Immoral and depraved men have been the most prosperous. How ran your iirouil.se be according to fact?" Why, my brother, what you statu and what 1 state aro in perfect accord with God's revelation. Did you ever read the history of Paul's journey to Homo? V, hy were all the passengers and the crew of the Alexandrian corn ship sav ed? Hecnuso the ship carried Paul, the servant of Christ. God saved the crew to honor the presence of his evangelist. The mere presence, of tho good Is a nource of blessing for the indifferent and tho bad. That is n Hible truth taught again and again In the past centuries. Have you pondered well over Abraham's prayer when ho plead ed for the salvation of doomed Sodom and Gomorrah? What did God mean when he gave those answers to thu patriarch of old? Why, God simply meant this: "Abraham, If there are fif ty or twenty or even ten righteous per sons in the wicked cities of tho plain 1 will save those two cities for the ten righteous' sake." Vou can put but one Interpretation upon that answer any way you look at It. God sometimes blesses those with whom his children nro compelled to live, as he saved the passengers of the Alexandrian com I'Mp for Paul's sake. All Dlessed Together. Now, I am not asserting that all poo pie vlio live In Christian lands are Christians, but I am asserting that God blesses all people In Christian lands 'on account of the Christian peo ple who have by thnlr presence In those lands led to their bearing the Christian name, if this fact Is not true, how can you account for tho fact that nil the great scientific discoveries have originated among thu so called Christian nations? There must be some rational cause for' this over whelming result. I honor Morso nnt. Nuwton and Faraday and Hell and Edison and Hewitt and all the other Illustrious inventors of the centuries because God has enabled them to bring honor on the lands that could claim them as citizens. Hut God has fulfilled the blessing of my text In still another way. He has made tho home a scene of light. Wher ever his name is honored among the people of tho earth ho has. lot great tidal waves of gladsome light roll through tho homos of these people and fill tho vestibules and tho parlors and tho sitting rootnu and tho bedrooms tind the kitchen ns among no other people on earth. If you are looking for the highest types of domestic peace, nnd happiness, do you seek them In tho pagan homes? Where do the heathen lands offer domestic refinement aud purity like those found by our own do mestic fireside? Answer mo, ye who call tho cross a chimera. In Heathen Lands. Would you llnd those happy homes down by tho binning ghats of India? There man looks upon woman as tho slave of her husband. There In former days the widow had to nscend the fu neral pyro of her dead husband. Tharo the little child was of such Infinitesi mal value that the crocodiles used to fatten their young upon them, and there Infanticide was ho common that some mothers could not tell how many of tholr babies they had fed to the scaly, loathsome reptiles. Would you look for those happy homes in licen tious Home, where marriage was con sidered a spider's wob nnd where vir tue could not bo found In tho Homan lexicon nnd where soino women had been married and remarried so fre quently that they had dlflifcuity In re membering their alliances? Would you llnd those happy homes among the African Jungles, where cannibals ban queted upon the flesh of men or among the nomad tribes of North American Indians, where a woman was looked upi .1 as a beast of burden? Tell me, In all (lie history of the world, If you can, where motherhood and childhood aro so honored and the names of wife and sister and daughter and mother so re vered and where the domestic life Is so happy as among the firesides of ('h'.lstlati homes. Oh, can you ever cease to thank God for tho light that was sown for you under the domestic roof? Your in dher was not a great woman ns thu world looks upon greatness. She was not a famous authoress, like George Hllnt or Alice Cary or ICllza beth Stuart Phelps. She was not a gieat reformer, like Susan H. Anthony, or a great leader of armies, like tho Maid of Orleans. She was not an art M. like Itosa Honheiir. She was an ox pert in washing dishes, but she had never cultivated the magnificent art of decorating china as some of her daugh ters do. Hut from the very moment of her niheut Into the world she was an honored member of the community In which she lived. First the home of her mother was filled with sacred Jcnr v hen she was born. Then during ffll the days of her girlhood she was treat ed with the tenderest protecting care. Then your father came to court her. He was her lover to the last. Then her children arose to call her blessed. And when nt last her poor tired body was laid to rest by her dead husband hundreds of her friends whom her life had blessed stood about her open grave to weep (here. Tell mo, where can you find such honor paid to womanhood except In a Christian land tilled with Christian homes? Am I wrong when I state that tho great tidal waves of gladsome light roll through the rooms of the Christian home? Has not God binned the Christian nations with the hluhest type of domestic felicity? Christian Governments. Hut as tho homo is only one of tho units of society wo must study how God blesses the governments of tho Christian lands ns well as the Individ ual firesides. Hero wo also find the great tidal waves of gladsome light Jlowing everywhither. Here we lind the governments not run for a few, but for the many. Heio the rulers aro tlie servants of the people. Here the governments are "of the people and for the people and by the people." This fact was not true In olden times, beforo the Christ love was acknowledg ed in the hearts of men. Then It was the governmental doctrine of the "di vine rights of kings." Now it Is the doctrine of the "divine rights of tho people." Wo look with amazement upon some of the stupendous buildings which the great potentates) of the east have erect ed. All! "Theie were giants in those days," giants so big that the earth will never produce their like again. And the trouble about those old giants was that they grew t;o grent by op pressing the people whom they ruled, hid you know that tho rulers of Egypt In order to build the groat canal whl"h has made tho present city of Cairo possible took thousands of men from their labors In the fields and forcibly drove them to the ditches? And as a result of that conscription 20,000 men pclshed. Some people may Hud p-an-t it ur In that, but I only see brutal t j ranny. What Egyptian traveler has not stud led the famous citadel built by the ; great Saladlii? It Is a wonderful strut ! ture. Hut did you ever hear how ho ; built it? 1 will tell you. He built it by enslnvlng all the captured crusaders and compelling them to labor there for the rest of tholr lives. Aye, there wero I giants In those days, but thank God wo did not live In them, for In all prob ability we should have had our lives I crushed out of us by some tyrant as ' your foot might crush an insect In a 1 country path. Hut now all the Injus tices of the feudal system nro gon Now every man's home Is ids castie. Now man must respect the rights of man. One man's liberty ends whore tho equal rights of another man begin, And mark you this, tho "divine rights af the people" were first taught to tho world through the agency of those na tions which first acknowledged Christ as their Saviour and Lord. Am I wrong in declaring that great tidal waves of gladsome light bless that na tion which acknowledges God as Its iJivine Huler aud Guide? Tho Church Spire. Don't you remuuibor that old picture you had In your childhood reader? It stood at the top of the page and told tho story of the shipwrecked sailor who was landed upon an unknown Is land. He thinks ho Is to be eaten hv I Miu cannibals, but he climbs a tree, and oil lu the distance he sees a church spire, Then he knows he Is safe, for wherever Christ Is honored In any com munity thero Is safety. The host sure ty of personal rights is a church altar. The best guarantee of social ami politi cal justice Is a church spire. Thank God for what ho has done for the American peoplo as a nation! Hut we llnd tho great tidal waves of God's gladsome light In the depths of human mercy as well ps In divine.

VIEWS OF SATIRE A Brief Disquisition by Mr. Ones, terton. In n Xr-.t Vein of II Himself, Tt Ou(. Hues (lie Vurliiits (luiilttlcs: nuil l'roii crllca of Entire Modern Cinniplr.'i of the Commodity .Not Itlullt. ((!. 1C. Chesterton, In the Illustrated Lon don News.) Mr. Holloc, In u recent discussion in the Mornln Host has lamented the ab S'nco of great satire; certainly a gap the t ho has done a great deal to fill. Hut, as It happens, nn examplo was provided by tho very newspaper controversy In which he made the complaint. For some mysterious reason, the discussion (which was supposed to be about tho merits of modern books) turned Into a duel between Mr. E. F. Benson and Mr. E. B. Oshorn Iu this duel they were both very satiric, nnd did something towards proving Mr. B'lloc's contention touching the decay of satire. As fur ns I can make out, tho original cause nf quarrel was a point of giammar. Mr. E. F. Benson had said "compared to" when ho ought to hnvo paid "compared with," or he had mild "compared with" when he ought to have said "compared to," T rtn not know which s the correct form, nnrt certainly I do nnt enre. I find many topics In the mod em world compared with which, and compared to whleh, thin discussion seems rather trifling. Then Mr. nenson said that Shakespeare had snld whntever It was that he said; nnd this does not prove much, for Shakespeare would hnve snld "enm-nred" hy with, or from, round, through, or underneath If It lind mado n good line of poetry, Then Mr. Os- born accused Mr. Hcnuon of nrctondlnK to ho ns good ns Sliakfspf-nre, which Is ordinary nibblsli. Tho first inoinl of this particular iU.ilibln seenis to t,o that it h Just as rasj to bate jour m-lKhbnr about imltnpoiinnt thltiKs ;m t hiito him about Important things. S. rulnrlstR say tlMt men have qunrrellMl nhcnit the Hlble but It proms thr. would have quart eli cit tpilte iih rruelly about nn IbiKllah grammar. Men have enmptiiluoii that Hie Ficneh 1 evolution brought strife In to the world; but people would havo striven oven more blttu lv about mora spelling. As revcidt-d In tlrts particular controversy, the possibilities seem really Infinite nnd awful, donos nnd Smith ctin differ about whether one mihl to say "compared to" or "eompiired with." And the nltlmnle result miiy lh.it .lours compares Smith to n mimk'v, nnd Smith compares Jones with a loud. Hut then there entered nnother prob lem! the problem satire. Mr. J. )., Upri sen and Mr. Othorn been,, tu sm..,.,. (vt each other In a special nnd particular manner, a mniiner to which I havo n. very strong objection. It w.n Invented, t think, by Whistler. It consists nf having an eidently hitler and unkind Intention, and covering If with n very thin and transparent skin of frivolity nnd ense. It Is pretending dnnn with levity when you nro reillv diuieing with rage. Whistler, ns I s iy, nude popular this kind of pretence; he created the sntlre which does not swoop like an eaglo or He In wait like n serpent, but which dances round like 1 fly or gnat, nppaient ly careless, but 'i truth ns much Irri tated ns Irt-ltntlne A fiivolous fancy might suggest thir oven Whistler's nnnm was a pen-name; 'or he was the perfect xtmple of the man who affects care UsMiess by preterdlng to whistle. Now, Mr, Henson nnd .Mr. Ostium gave their readers nil orgy "f this sort of hypocrit ical playfulness. Mr. Henson asks Mr, CKborn to send I I111 "n nice little letter, with no mistakes n It." Mr. ttsborn calls Mr. llen'on a kU'en, nnd says, that of couise. he doer ve t like his Huffy little fur b'lng stroked 'lie wr'.ng wnv. t con fess (but I find nM this contemptible. TC you are rtnlly B'"'d humored, show It; It Is a great power. If you nre really angry, show thai It is a great power, too. Hut men wot'h ealllng men should not Indulge In V'l- coquetry or hatred; for the coquetry !' hatred ts oven less masculine than t e coquetry of love. Mm should be ft, nds or enemies; they should clash cups .r clnli swords. Or If they wish to go In for the great literary mystery called snli'-e, there are two ways In whleh the thir,' has hren splendidly done and can be 1 .mn spendidly again. The first metho ! Is really to conceal your anger; the si end. and even strong er method Is ien!' to havo no anger to conceal. The lator method consists In overwhelming yo ir enemy In a torrent of real good humor, of good humor which may eons -t of nothing but nut rngeouJ epithets, 1 good humor In which every curse in the dictionary can he found, but still ' no In which Irritation cannot be found. ;iio great example of tins method Is Hn elals. The other wal ls to restrain your Indignation so com pletely thnt your itire becomes not on ly serious, but np.iirently dull. You dig a trap for the ren ler nnd wait patiently beside It for day- and nights, of thh method the great nmple Is Swift Odd- ly enough, the 1 nlv man now writing In either of thes styles Is writing In both of them; I -nn Mr HMloe h,m self. "The Path ! Rome" was Rabel aisian, especially I , this that the writer was really too haji v to worry about his enemies though 1 1 ton happy to havo fling at them. On the other hand, "Mr. liurden" was In tl terrible tradition of Swift there he did v orry about his ene mies, hut he worr'e'l too much over to give himself away, .te planned a cam paign and patiently iwaltfd a collapse. When Jn "The Path to Rome'' Mr. Uelloc gets Into some quarrel with nn imagin ary render nnd ends up hy saying, "U Is natural to he tired. Your fathers tired of the treadmill anil mine nf ;he conquering marches of the rrpn'dle. Heaven bless you nil!" there is a bursting good temp er In the abuse which shows that the writer really is not annoyed nt all. When on the other hand. In "Mr. Kurden" the wilter wishes to suggest the dubious origin of Mr. Ilarhurv, and the slcklv sentiment which mixes up Kngllsh le gends with such alien realities, ho speaks of "the quiet atmosphere of a Ievnntlne country vlrarng"." That Is not a fugitive snigger, but a sneer carv ed In stone; It Is eoually good whether men see It or nrve, see It at all. Hut modern eontroversial sts like Mr. Hen son nnd Mr. O-diom will not adopt either of these methods. They Insist on stick ing to tho stinging-butterfly style, which cotnhlnos all the disadvantages of a man obviously Irritated with nil the disadvan tages of a man nhxluuslv sincere. They neither express their anger nor conceal It The'fluffy kitten' style of sarcasm Is quite as cruel lu Intention, quite as empty of charity or lespoct for men, ns the blackest nnd most '-rulal of the old-fashion -d sallies. It means to hurt; Its Intention Is quite as bitter and quite ns base. In the controversy between Mr. Henson and Mr. Oshorn each writer had, under all his arabesques of alluslYm and insinuation, one common nnd quite simple object; he wished to suggest that tho other man was .1 foot Now we all know quite well thnt Mr. lv. F. Henson Is not a fool.. It It equ.illv evident thnt Mr. Oshorn Is not a fool. Iven If Mr. H. F. I'.enson did use a wiong grammatical form. 1 doesn't mntter. Kven If Mr. Os horn Is llgl'it. he Is wrong. There Is 110 solid moral substance In the quarrel. If It had happened In tho enghteenth cen tury It might hnve been slanderous nnd obscene past expicsslon, hut there would have been n solid moral substance In It If Mr. Henson and Mr. Oshorn hart hat ed each other In the eighteenth century, they would not have accused each other of mistakes In grammar. Mr. Henson would hnvo accused Mr. Oshorn of bik ing bribes or getting drunk every night. Mr. Oshorn would have accused Mr. Henson of having ilrserte, one or two wives. Now It Is certnlnly unchristian to arouse hatred ogilnst people upon such charges as these; but at least It menus arousing hntred against people" for things whleh. If true, really are hate ful. Kor even slander Involves a confess ion of the supremo Importance nf mor ality. And when the old sntlrlo methods were true, they were n-levant. It noes ' nt spoil Mr. Henson ns n critic thnt he wrnto somewhere n wrong preposition; anybody might wrlto a wrong preposl. Hon. But tho Earl of Sindwlch. that celebrated nobleman whoso nickname was Jemmy Twltcher, was spoilt ns a moral censor of Wilkes by the fact that he himself was hi th habit nf howllnir Indecent songs In Wilkes's company.
