ONE MORE. >
When man and tiino itself were peon, '
In the far days before the flood,
And living souls had flesh and bloody
Five hundred or a thousand years, *
Till birthdays grew a misty guess,'
What signified one more or less / ^
Ah mo! no thought may now contemn ’
That unit of the lives of men, ^
Whose dwindled years are one to tea .
Of Adam and Methusalem,
And one bath all the cares that grew
In twenty when the world was new. /
A year! ’tis nature's mom and night,
The lifetime of a plant, with dower
Of seed and sprout and leaf and flower;
And yet before its snows are whits
We claim the next, ami plan to run
Another journey round the sun.
Our course of being hath no goal,
Alone in passing youth or age
The onward step, the further stage.
Is counted by the insatiate soul.
That haunts the Future's open door
And cries for one to-morrow more.
And though the new to-morrows boam
On thankless slight and wilful waste.
And greed of mortals crazed with haste, .
Who hope and scheme and wish and dream
Still, added to life’s growing sum,
In mercy one by one they coma
One more reprieve from sorrow's stress
One more delay for duty's stent.
One more probation to repent.
One more condition of success
We ever crave. The boon is lent;
W e take—but we are not content.
l)o New Years rise and set in vai
Because uneasy spirits frstf
Not so: the world hnth wisdom yet.
And punctual sense of present gain,
And faith, whose patience waits so long
Its yearning doeth time no wrong.
And Heaven,that chides the rash and blind,
Relents when love of life entreats.
And still with granted seasons meets
The common prayer of all mankind
And gives eternity—whose store
Of years forever yields one more.

Dr. Ta Imago Drawn a Loason From

[This jubilee sermon was preached by the

persons, making the present communicant
membership of tho Brooklyn Tabernacle

church. The annual rental of pows bad just

Income of the church this year will be $83,
804. But both plans are obeervod in the
church. A vast space le kept free from all
expense and only a part of the building is
mapped off for rent. I>r. Talmage took his
text from Luke xv., 21: "Bring hltbor the

The old man always said his son would come.
He had been looking for him day after day

\ ou have seen, perhaps, a rann running
for his physical liberty and the ofllcers of the
law after him, and you saw him escape, or
geterward you heard the judge had pardoned
him. and how great was the glee of that res
cued man; but It is a very tame thing that,
compared with the running for one's ever
lasting life—the terrors of the law after him,
but Christ coming in to pardon and bless and
rescue and save, i ou remember John Bun

u?u’ , F°ur hour of salvation There was in
the cloeing hours of Queen Anne what is
called the dock scene. Flat down on the
pillow In helpless sickness she could not
move her head or move her hand.
Bhe was waiting for the hour when
»• Ministers of State should
gather in angry contest, and. worried awl
worn out hy tne coming hour, and In mo
mentary absence of the nurse. In the power,
the strange power whiah delirium sometimes
gives one, she arose and stood in front of the
clock, end stood there watching the clock
when the nurse returned. The nurse said:
"Do you see anything pjcullar about
that clock I” Bhe made no answer,
but soon died. There is a clock
scene In every history. If some of you
would rise from the bed of lethargy and
come out from your delirium of sin and look
on the clock of your destluy this morning,
you would see and hear something you have
not seen or heard before, and every tick of
the minute, and every stroke of the hour,
and every swing of the pendulum would
say: "Now. now, now. now”* Oh, come home
to your Father s house. Come home, oh,
prodigal, from the wilderness. Come home,
come borne i
II. But I notice that when the prodigal
came there was the father’s joy. He did not
greet him with any formal "How do you dol"
He did not come out an I nay: "You are un
fit to enter: go out and wash in the trough
by toe well, and then you can come In; we
have had enough trouble with you.” Ah!
0o* ,b*n the proprietor of that eitato pro
claimed festival, it wa« an outburst of a
fat bar’s love and a father’s joy. God Is your
Father. I Lav? not much sympathy with
that description of God I sometimes hear, as
though He ware a Turkish Sultan, hard and
unsympathetic, and listening not to the cry of
His subjects. A man told me he saw in one
of the eastern lands a King riding along, and
two man were In altercation,and one charged
the other with having eaten his rloe; and the
King said: "Then slay the man and by post
mortem examination find whether he I.as
eatea the rice." And he was slaiu. Ah! the
cruelty of a scone like that. Our God is not
a Bultan. not a Caar, not a despot, but a
Father-kind, loving, forgiving, and He
makes all heaven ring again when a prodigal
cornea took, •*! have no pleasure,” be ssys,
lu tho death of him that dietb.”
If a man does not get to Leaven It la lie
cause ho will not gc there. No difference
tno cojor, no difference tbo history, no differ
enca the antecedents, no difference the sur
roundings, no difference tho sin. When the
white horses of Christ's victory aro brought
out to ce.obreie the eternal triumph you may
ride one of them, end as God is greater thau
f l 1*. f? groafcer, and when a soul come*
back there Is iu hie heart the surging of an
Infinite ocean of gladness, and to exprews that
ff’*5n*** t* takes all tho rivers of pleasure,
and all the thrones of pomp, ttnd all the a?es
of eternity. It is a joy deeper than all depth,
and higher than all he ght, and wider tuan
all width, and vast-r than nil Immensity. It
overtops, it nndergJrds. it outweighs ell tho
united splendor and Joy of the universe. Who
can tell what God’u joy is I
You remember read ng the story of a
King, who on some great day of festivity
scattered silver and gold among the peonlo,
and lent valuable presents to his courtier,
but methinks when a soul comet hack, God
is so glad that to express Ills Joy He flings
out new worlds Into space, and kindles up
new suns, and rolls among the white robed
ant bams of tho redeemed a greater hallelujah
whilo with a voloj that reverberates auionz'
the mountains of frankincense and is
echoed back from the everlasting gates, Ho
cries: “This, my son, wsk dead, and he is
nlivo again.”
At the opening of (he Exposition in New
Orleans. I saw a Mexican flutist, and be
played the solo, and then aftorward tho eight
or ten bands of music, accompanied by the
great organ, came in; but the sound or that
ono flute as compared with ail the orchestra
waa greater than ull the combined joy of the
universe when compared with the resounding
heart of Almighty God.
For ten years a father wrni three time* a
dav to the depot HU son went off in aggra*
vating circumstances, but tho father said:
‘‘IT# will come back. ’ The strain was too
much, aud his mind partoi, and threo times
a day tho father went, in tho early morning
be watched the train, its arrival, the step
ping out of tho pnesen.'ora. and then
the departure of tho train. At noon
be was there aeain watching the ad
vance of the train, watching tho depart
ure. As night, there again; watching the
coming, watching the going for ten years.
Ho was sure his son would come back. God
has been watching and waiting for some of
yon, my toothers, ten years, twenty years,
thirty years, forty years, perlinpi fifty ymrs
•—waiting, waiting, watching, watching; and
if this morning the prodigal should come
home, what a soene of glndnawand festivity,
nud how the great Father's heart would re
joice at your coming home- You will come,
some of you, will you not? You will, you

11T. I notico also that when a prodigal
comes home there is the joy of tho ministers
of religion. Oh, it is a grand thing to preach
this Gospel. I know there has been a great
deal said about the trials and tlis harrbthic*
of tho Christian ministry. 1 with somebody
would wt to a good, rousing book about the
joys of the Christian ministry. Sine® I en
tered tho profession I have e*en more of the
goodness ot God than I will to able to
celebrate in all eternity. I know some boast
about their equilibrium and they d > not rise
into enthusiasm, and they do not break down
with emotion: but I confess to you plainly
that wton I sea span cuinimr to GnJ. and
gtvlng up hit sin T feel In body,tnfnfl,and scut
a transport. When I see a man who is tounl
hand and foot In evil habit emancipated,
I rejoice over it as though it were my own

munion »ervice eorh throngs of young and
old stand at those n'tars. and in the j resenos
of heaven and ear»h and hell attest their al

If you have never resit a telograpbio
chart, you have no Idea how many Cities are
connected together and how many lands.
Nearly all the neighborhoods of the earth
seem articulated, and news flies from city to

At the banquet of Lucullus sat Cicero th#

Socrates the philosopher; but at our Luthers

Law mid Luwyers.
It cannot bo supposed that overy ono
who appears in a court of justice pos
sesses that amount of familiarity with
his country’s laws which would make
■ him a lit or capable exponent of his
own cause, although there are pome
j chronic offenders who, by long ex peri
j ence, have become ns expert in cheat
ing tho gallows and the jail ns a rogu
larly ordained oounselor at law.
Almost every person who attain ■
years of maturity, sooner or later, has
■ some eauso which can bo sottlrd only
at tho bar of justice, ns, for instance,
when the matured person refuse* to
comply with his promise to commit
matrimony, and refuses to meet his
I other obligations,
Tho duties of a lawyer ara not such

j throwing dust in the optics of the jury

requires time to harden the cheoli of
J the criminal lawyer to the requisite
j degree of toughness.
At all times tho harvest of lawyers
J has been abundant, and there is no im
I mediate reason for fearing that the

I inl»» you, my darling, my darliair,
The embers born low on the hearth t
And still la the at r of the household.
And hushed is tbs voice of its mirth;
The rain plashes fast on tba terrace.
The winds past the lattices moan ;
The midnight chimes out from the minster
And I am alono.
I want yon, my darling, my darling;
I am tired with care and with fret;
I would neetle In silence beside you.
And all but your presence for/et,
In tb# hush or the happiness given.
To those who through trusting have giown
To the fttllueta of love In contentment.

My voice cohoes back on my heart;
I stretch my anus to yoir in louglng, ’
And lo! they fall empty, apart.
I whisper the awoet words von taught me
The words that wo only have known.
Till the blank of the dumb air is bitter
For I am alone.

With Its yearning my very heart aches ;
The load that divides us weighs harder ;

Old sorrows rise up to beset me;
Old doubts make my spirit their own.

“Your sweetheurt used to sing it, 1 pre

“No, wrong again. When I used to stay
