[Copyright, lswi. by ivouix Klopsch, N. Y.J lu this discourse Dr. Talmage de scribes some of the scours to be wit nessed late at night in the great cit ies and warns the unwary of many perils; text, Isaiah 21, 11: “Watchman, what of tin- night?” When night came down on 11a by Ion, Nineveh and Jerusalem they needed careful watching; otherwise the incen diury's torch might have been thrust into the very heart of the metropolitan splendor, or enemies, marching from the hills, might have forced the gates. All night long, on top of the wall and in front of the gates, might be heard the measured step of the watchman on his solitary beat. Silence hung in air, save as some passerby raised the ques tion: “Watchman, what of the night?” It is to me a deeply suggestive and solemn thing to see a man standing guard by night, it thrilled through me as at the gate of an arsenal in Charleston the question once smote me: “Who comes there?” followed by the sharp command: “Advance and give the countersign.” Every moral teacher stands on picket or patrols the wall as watchman, llis work is to sound the alarm, and. whether It be in the first watch, the second watch, in the third watch or in the fourth watch, to be vigilant until the daybreak flings its “morning glories” of blooming cloud across the trellis of the day. The ancients divided their night into four parts—the first watch, from C to 9; the second, from 9 to 12; the third, from 12 to 3, and the fourth, from 3 to 6. 1 speak now of the city in the third watch, from 12 to 3 o’clock. I never weary of looking upon the life of the city in the first watch. That is the hour when the stores are clos ing. The laboring men, having quitted the scaffolding and the shop, are on their way home. It rejoices me to give them my seat in the city car. They have stood and hammered away all day. Their feet are weary. They are exhausted with the tug of work. They are mostly cheerful. With appetites sharpened on the swift turner’s wheel und the carpenter’s whetstone they seek the evening meal. The clerks, too, have broken away from the coun ter and with brain weary of the loug line of figures and the whims «>f those who go a-shopping, seek the face of mother or wife or child. The streets are thronged with young men setting out from the great centers of bargain making. Let idlers clear the street and give right of wuy to the besweated artisans and merchants! They have earned their bread and are now on their way to get it. The lights in full jet hang over 10.000 evening repasts— the parents at. either end of the table, the children between. Thank God. “who setteth the solitary in families.” A few hours later and all the places of amusement, good and bad, are in full tide. Lovers of art, catalogue in hand, stroll through the galleries and discuss the pictures. The ballroom is resplendent with the rich apparel of those \\ ho, on eit her side of t he white, gl is tening boards, await t he sign a I f rom the orchestra. Concert halls are lift ed into enchantment with the warble of one songstress or swept out on a sea of tumultuous feeling by the blast of brazen instruments. Drawing rooms are filled with all the graceful ness of apparel, with all sweetness of sound, with all splendor of manner; mirrors are catching tip and multi plying the scene, until it seems as if in infinite corridors there were gar-| landed troop* advancing and retreat-1 J ing. The outdoor air rings with laugh ter and with the moving to and fro of thousands on the great promenades. The dashing span, ndrip with the foam of the long country ride, rushes past as you halt ut the curbstone. Mirth, revelry, beauty, fashion, magnificence, mingle in the great metropolitan pic-' ture until the thinking man goes home to think more seriously, and the pray ing man to pray more earnestly. A beautiful and overwhelming thing is the city in the first and second watches of the night. Hut the clock strikes 12. and the third watch has begun. "I be thunder of the city has rolled out of the air. The slightest sounds cut the night with such distinctness as to attract your at tention. The tinkling of the bell of the street car in the distance nnd the baying of the dog. The stamp of a hor-e in the next street. The slamming of a saloon door. The hiccough of the drunkard. The shrieks of the steam whistle five miles away. Oh. how -ug gestive. my friends, the third watch of the night! There are honest men passing up and down the street. Here is a city missionary who has been carrying a scuttle of coal to that poor family in that dark place. Here is an under taker going up the steps of a building from which there cornea a bitter cry. which indicates that the destroying angel has smitten the first-born. Here s a minister of religion who has been giving the sacrament to a dying ( hris tian. Here is a physician passing along in great haste. Nearly all the lights have gone out in the dwellings, for it is the third watch of the night. That light in the window is the light of the watcher, for the medicines must be administered, and the fever must be watched, and the restless tossing off of the coverlid must be resisted, and the ice must be kept on the hot tem ples, and the perpetual prayer must go up from hearts soon to be broken. Oh. the third watch of the night! What a stupendous thought a whole e»ty at rest! Weary arm prepat mg for \o-morro*.'s toil. Hot brain being cooled off. Ifigid muscle* relaxed. Ex cited nerves soothed. '1 fee white hair of the octogenarian in thin drifts across the pillow, fresh fall of flakes on snow already fullen. Childhood, with its dimpled hands thrown out on the pillow, and with every breath tak ing in a new store of fun and froitv. Third watch of the night! Clod’s slum berless eye will look. Let one great wave of refreshing slumber roll over the heart of the great tow u, submerg ing care and anxiety and worrimeut and pain. Let the city sleep. Hut, iny friends, be not deceived. There will be to-night thousands who will not sleep at all. Co up that durk alley, and be cautious where you tread lest you fall over the pros trate form of a drunkard lying on his own doorstep. Look about you. lest you feel the garroter’s hug. Look through the broken window pane, and st e what you can see. You say: "Nothing.” Then listen. What is it? "(lod help us!” No footlights, but tragedy ghastlier and mightier than llistori or Edwin Booth ever en acted. No light, no fire, no bread, no hope. Shivering in the cold, they have had no food for 24 hours. You say: "Why don’t they beg?” They do, but they get nothing. You say: "Why don’t they deliver themselves over to the almshouse?” Ah, you would not ask that if you ever heard the bitter cry of a man or child when told he must go to the almshouse! “Oh,” you say, "they ure vicious poor, and therefore they do not deserve our sympathy.” Are they vicious? So much more they need your pity. The ( hristiun poor, (lod helps them. Through their night there twinkles the round, merry star of hope and through the broken window they see the crystals of Heaven, but the vicious poor, they are more to be pitied. Their last light lias gone out. ^ ou excuse yourself from helping them by saying they are so bad they brought this trouble on themselves. I reply: Where I give ten prayers for tin* innocent who are suffering I will give 20 for the guilty who are mi ffering. Pass on through the alley. Open the door. “Oh,” you say, “it is locked.” No, it is not locked. It has never been locked. No burglar would be tempted to go in there to steal anything. The door is never locked. Only a broken chair stands against the door. Shove it back. Go in. Strike a match. Now, look. Beastli ness and rags. See those glaring eyeballs. Be eareful now what you say. Do not utter any insult, do not utter any suspicion, if you value your life. What is that red mark on the wall? It is the mark of a murderer’s hand! Look at thoie two eyes rising up out of the darkness and out from the straw in the corner, corning to ward you, and as they come near you your lights go out. Strike another match. Ah, this is n babe, not like those beautiful children presented in baptism. 'I'll is little one never smiled; it never will smile. A flower flung on an awfully barren beach. O Heavenly Shepherd, fold that little one in thy arms! Strike another match. Ah, is it possible that the scarred and bruised face of that young woman was ever looked into by maternal tenderness? Utter no scorn, litter no harsh word. No ray of hope has dawned on that brow for many a year. No ray of hope ever will dawn on that brow. Hut the light has gone out. Do not strike another light. It. would be a mockery to kindle another light in such a place as that. Pass out and pass down the street. Our cities are full of such homes, and the worst time the third watch of the night. Do you know It is in this third watch of the night that criminals do their worst work? It is the crimi nals watch. At half-past eight o’clock you will find them in the drinking saloon. but toward 12 o’clock they go to their garrets, they get out their tools, then they start on the street. Watching on either side for the police, they go to their work or darkness. This is a burglar, and the false key will soon touch Ihe store lock. This is an incendiary, and before morning there will be a light on the sky and a cry of “Fire, fire!” This is an assassin, and to morrow morning there will be a dead body in one of the vacant lots. Dur ing the daytime these villains in our cities lounge about, some asleep and some awake, but when the third watch of the night arrives their eve is keen, their brain cool, their arm strong, their foot fleet to fly or pur sue, they are ready. Many of these poor creatures were brought up that way. They were born in a thieves’ garret. Their childish toy was a bur glar’* dark lantern. The first thing they remember was their mother bandaging the brow of their father, struck by the police club. Thev be gan by robbing boys’ pockets, and now they have come to dig the un derground passnge to the cellar of th«» bank and are preparing to blast th« gold vault. Just so long as there are neglected children of the street, just so long we will have these des peradoes. Some one, wishing to make a good Christian point and to «piote a pnssnpe of Scripture, expecting to get u Scriptural passage in answer, said to one of these poor lads, cast out and wretched: “When your fn I ther and mother forsake you, who will take you up?*' and the boy said: ' "The perl ice!” friends, you see all around about you the need that something radical be done. You do not set the worst. In the midnight meetings in London a great multitude has been saved. We want a few hundred Christian men and women to come down rrom the highest circles of society to toil amid these wandering and destitute one* and kin dle up a light in th° dark alley, even the giadnessr of ilerven. Do oot go wrapped in your line furs and from jour well-filled table* with the Idea that pious talk is going to atop the gnawing of an empty stomach or tc warm stockingless feet. Take bread, take raiment, take medicine, as well as take prayer. There i* a great deal of common sense in what the poor wom an .said to the city missionary when he was telling her how she ought to love «od and serve Him. “Oh,” she said, “il you were as poor and cold as I am and as hungry you could think of noth ing else.” I could give you the history in a min ute of one of the best friends I ever had. Outside of my own family I never had a better friend. He welcomed me to my home nt the west. He was of splendid personal appearance, but he had an ardor of soul and a warmth ol affection that made me love him like a brother. I saw men coming out of the saloons and gambling hell*, and they surrounded my friend, aad they took him at the weak point—his social nature—and 1 saw him going down and I had a fair talk with him, for 1 uever yet saw a man you could not talk with on the subject of his habits if you talked with him in the right way. I said to him: “Why don’t yot give up your bud habits and become a ( bristian?” I remember now just how he looked, leaning over his coun ter. as he replied: “1 wish 1 could. Oh sir. 1 should like to b? a Christian, but I have gone so far astray I can’t get back!” So the time went on. After awhile the day of sickness came. 1 was summoned to his sickbed. I has tened. It took but a few moments tc get there. I was surprised as I went in. I saw him in his ordinary dress, fully dressed, lying on top of the bed. I gave him my hand, and he seized it convulsively, and said: “Oh, liow glad I ara to see you! Sit down there.” I sat down, and he said: “Mr.Talmage, just where you sit now my mother sat last night. She has been dead L’O years. Now. 1 don’t want you to think I am out of my mind or that lam supersti 11(mi>, uui, sir. sm- sat there last night and she said: ‘Roswell, 1 wish you would do better—I wish jou would do better. ‘1 said: ‘Mothei, 1 wish 1 could do betetr; I try to do hetter,but I (’flu •. Mother, you used to help me. Why can't you help me now?’ And, sir, I got out of bed, for it was a reality, and I went to her and threw my arms around her neck, and I said: ‘Mother. I will do better, but you must help. 1 can t do this alone.’ ” I knelt and prayed. That night his soul went to the Lord who made it. Arrangements were made for the obsequies. 1 he question was raised whether they should bring him to the church. Somebody said: “You cannot bring such a dissolute man as that into the church.” I said: “You will bring him in church; he stood by me uheo he was alive, and f will stand by him when he is dead. Bring him.” As I stood in the pulpit and saw them car rying the body up the aisle I felt as if I could weep tears of blood. On one side of the pulpit sat his little child of eight years, a sweet, beautiful little girl, that 1 had seen him hug convul sively in his hetter moments, lie put on her all jewels and gave her all pic tures and toys, and then he would go away, as if hounded by at: evil spirit. to his cups and the house of iniquity_ a fool to the correction of the stocks. She looked up wonderingly. She knew not what it meant. She was not old enough to understand the sorrow of an orphan. On tin* other side sat the men who had ruined him; they were the men who had poured the worm wood into the orphan’s cup; they were the men who had bound him hand and foot. 1 knew them, llow did they seem to feel? Did fhey weep? No. Did they say: “What a pity that so generous a man should be destroyed?“ No. Did they sigh repentingly over what they had done? No. They sat there, looking as vultures look at the carcass of a Iamb whose heart they have ripped out. So they sat and looked at the coflin lid. and I told thtwn the judgment of God upon those who had. destroyed their fellow. Did thev reform? I was told they were in the places of iniquity that night after my friend was laid in Oakwood cemetery, and they blasphemed and they drank. Oh, how merciless men are. especially after they have destroyed you! Do not look to men for comfort or help. But there is a man who will not re ! form. He says: “I won't reform.” Well, then, how many acts are there in a tragedy? i believe there are five nets in u tragedy. Act the first of the tragedy: A young man starting ofT from home; parents and sisters weeping to have him go; wagon rising over the hill; farewell kiss flung bark. Bing the bell, and let the curtain fall. Act Ihe second: The marriage altar; full organ; bright lights; long white veil trailing through the aisle; prayer and congratulations and exclamation | of “How well she looks!” Act the third: A woman waiting for daggering steps; old garments stuck into the broken window pane; marks of hardship on the face; the biting of the nails of bloodless fingers* neglect and cruelty nud despair. Ring the bell, and let the curtain drop. Act the fourth: Three graves in a dark place- giave of the child that died for lack of medicine, grave of the wife that died of a broken heart, grave of the man that died of d is* i pa t ion. Oh. what a blasted heath with threj* graves! Plenty of weeds, but no flow ers. Bing the bell, and let the curtain drop. Act the fifth: A destroyed soul's eternity; no light, uo music; blackness of darkness forever. But I cannot look any longer. Woe. woe! I close my eyes to this last act of the trag edy. Quick, quick! Bing the hell, and | let the curtain drop. “Rejoice.
