In conclusion he appoints his namssake
Gen Na'han Goff, Jr., his executor, and
charg*« him with the responsibility of set
tling up his estate. He also in this clause
provides that "tbe remainder of his estate
not above disposed of, including all lapses,
shall go to Geu Nathan Goff" By lapses
is m->ant the provisions in the will where
conditions are imposed, such as that the
devisee be livin? at the time of Mr. Goff*
deatb. For instance, the bequests of
I2Û.000 to VVald<> P. Goff and ot $10.000
to Dr. Thos. M. Goff, will go to Gen Goff
| because they were both dead before
"Uncle" Nathan was. The same
is true of several other bequests. It is
thought that Mr. Goff s entire estate real'y
amounts to about $t>5'1,000, yet he only
passed by will in specific bequests of $338,
1000 and that Geo. Goff*• share of the be
quests will amount to over $500,000. The
will was wholly written by the decedent
"in his own proper handwriting." Any
one acquainted with his manner of writing
would feel conscience free in swearing that
no one else but him wrote it. There can
be no squabble over the will, as the inten
tion of the testator is clearly made known
and the will itself is incontrovertible proof
j of his capacity to make a will
. jOne other thing should be men
tioned here, and that is. that ha enjoined
it upon his executer not to distress any ot
his debtors except it be necessary to sav«
his estate to his devizees. Various reports

His Sermon at Columbus, 0., Yes
terday Morning
The Mistakes We Make In Starting
In Life and How to Rem
edy Them.
fp4*iai it the Umritt».
Col eus ci, 0., December 6—Rev. T. De
Witt Talmage, D.D, arrived in this city
yesterday afternoon. The news that the
celebrated Brooklyn preacher would deliv
er a sermon in the First Congregation»!
Church, Rev. Washington Gladden, pastor,
irew a crowd numbering several thousands
to the doors this morning. Many were
turned away unable to find seats. Dr.
Talmage read and expounded the parable
of the Prodigal Son, and then announced
the subject cf his discourse, "Crises in
Life," and the text, II. Samuel xviii, 32:
''Is the young man Absalom safe?" Dr
Ialmage said:
Two great characteristics cf
»ere worldly ambition and splendid hair.
By the one he was debased, by the other
bung. He was a bad boy and broke hi*
father's haart. He wanted to get hi«
Father's throne before the decease of the
father. He wanted to get it immediately.
Be got an army. He started out in a
great insurrection. David, the father,
ii:s at the Palace waiting for the news of
ha battle te come, not jo anxious about
whether Absalom's lijsts woo tbe day, or
whether his own hoits won the d*y, as he
s anxious about the safety of his boy.
in him mightier than the kin if.
While ha Bits there watching and wait
tig for the coming of a messenger from
he battlefield he sees the dust rising in
he highway, and long before the messen
?er cornea up, bringing the swift dispatch,
David crie« out to him : "is Absalom alive?
[« Absalom dead? Is the boy wounded?
Tell me quickly—is the young man Absa
!os safe?" But as the messenger had
30 very decisive intelligence to
give, he stood aside. There David sat
»auing for another messenger, after a
while he saw the dost rising on the high
way and long before the messenger had
:ome up, David Bhouted to him again—
ihouis to this one as he had to the other:
Have you heard anything trom my boy?
Is he wounded ? Is he alive * Is he dead ?
Ls theyoupg man Absalom safe? '
Alas! He was not safe. Absalom riJ
mg on a mule—the meanest animal in all
;he world on which to ride, the hardest at
:he bit and the stillest at the neck—Absa
lom riding on a mule had gone under a
tree branch and his hair had «aught on
:he tree branch; and the mule, true to iu
characteristics, had gone on, he not able
to stop it, and Absalom was suspended,
ind so he died. With an awful negative
he words of my text were answered. ' Is
the young man Absalom safe?'' No, he
was not sale. Destroyed for this life, de
itroyed for the life to come.
I want to otter a few words this morn
ng in regard to
ndeed of all men. While men may get
»long tolerably well without the religion
}f Christ in some circumstances of life,
there are three or four turning points
where a man must have Qod or perish, or
if he doe« not come to such a crisis as that,
to such an extreme as that, he mast have
Urod or make a mistake that will last for
ever. I propose this morning to speak to
you of three or four of these turning points
in life.
Tue first turning point is the choics of
an occupation or profession. It is a very
lerious time when a young man comes
from school or the college, aud has com
pleted his education, or has received all
the education from the schools he will re
ceive, and says: "But what shall I say?
For what occupation, for what profession,
am I prepared r' Mechanics will spread
betöre him a hundred different occupations
Professional life will spread betöre him
seven or eight calling». Indeed, perhaps
in all there may ba five hundred different
callings and occupation«. For only one
of those five hundred is he fitted aud pre
pared. If he does not have divine direc
tion, four hundred and ninety-nine chances
to one he will get in the wrong business.
In other words, the most tremendous crisis
m a man'« life, or one of the most tremen
dous, is the time when he choose« his occa
pation or profession, and he needs God to
tell him how to chooM.
I knew • man who started in commercial
He crossed over from commercial life into
the medical profession. He went from rte
general radical profession into specific
surgery. He went from surgery into the
ministry. Then he passed from the minis
try into surgery, and so his life has been a
complete vacillation. How much better it
would have bsen if that man could have goi
the right profession or occupation at
the start! ne was particularly quauaec
for surgery, »ad I behave if he had gone
betöre God and asked for Hi« direction hi
would have received it, and instead of go
iog from one ocoapation to another, mak
ing his life a mistake, he woald have go m
on to great usefulness and success
Yoo ask your father what you had bette

for what occupation you have particule

to this young man:
Do you not think that was the mistake of

been the mistake of his life before. The
minister taid: ' It would have been a great
deal better for you to have gone on and :
got something of a property before you
entered into the marriage state. Don't you
think it would have been better?'' And
then the voung man looked around, and

fatal mistake. Some go into dissipation.
Some take on great arrogauce, try to make
everybody feel how so-all they are; whole
caravans of camels going through the nee
dle's eye of their meanness. They walk
through tbe street with an air, as much us
to say: "Get out of the wav! Here comes
rhree hundred thousand dollars!" That is
the crisis in life where so many fail, be
cause they have no God to direoi^hem.
There are men who, before their success,
are kind and amiable, and genial and use
tul, who,
are arrogant and unbearable and unchris
tian. Here is a man who was once very
useful in society, but great success comes,
and he ge.9 in his equipage aud he drives
on; he lashes the üery steeds; he goes
faster and faster, eight miles the hour,
twenty miles the hour, one hundred miles
the hour, faster and faster, until in his last
moments he rouses np to tiud that he is
drawn by the fiery hoofs of eternal disaster
as they come racketting down on the pave
neat ot hell U, young man or mac id
mid life! you want God in your great suc
cès t, your first great success.
Another tremendous piu in oar life is
»heu we get our first sorrow. Il would be
foolish for me to talk to the young men of
ihia day as though their life was go:cg to
m smooth all the way. Yoa might as well
start a sea captain in a vessel, without a
carpenter, and without any tools, and with
out any cordage. Tnat would do very well
while the sea was smooth, but when th<
thip gets ca jgbt in the teeth of a north
<j»$ter, and the waves dash cleat over th#
nurricane deck, then the cap'ain cries oat:
' Where's the carpenter? Where are thf
tools? Where are the ropes?"' Tht
young men of this day would understand
that I misrepresented the "matter, if I tolc
(hem their lit'« was always to be tmooth
They know better. They know" from wha
ihey fee of the life of others, that lite can
not always be smooth. Many men cam«
borne freui the late war without a scratcl
or a bruise, but in the conflict of life it ii
not so; we all get wounded—wounded ii
the head, in the hands, in the feet, in th<
heart. Lift» is a conflict. The Bible ovei
I and over again states that. Paul states it
*nd he writes himself as in a war with th
I world, a war with the fiesb, and a wa
with the d*vil, and war all the wa;
throogh. Xow, how are you going to mee

the first sorrow t *
Perhaps the first trouble ia bereavement
I suppose you know—I suppose you hav<
recognized the iact, that eo often the fir*
born is taken. I have seven brothers anc
sisters. Each one lost the first born, and ]
tuppose that in hundreds ot cases in thi<
house, it was the first born that was taken
Some people give what is to me a very ab
surd reason for that. They say it is because
the child is loved too much. I do not think
that is possible. I do not believo any
father or mother loved a child too much.
You cannot love yourcbild too much. God
did not take your child because you loved it
too mach. I think this is the reason why
God so often takes the first born. It is tc
transfer your affections to heaven, and
make that place the more grand and
blessed; at the beginning of your life mak
ing heaven blessed, to that you keep think
ing of that place and fo be elevated and
lifted on toward it. I think that id the
reason. Perhaps I am wrong. I am sure
the other reason is wrong, that so many
people give whan they say it is because you
your ehild too much.
Now suppose the first trial cones
What then?- Have you ever tried to see
one go through bereavement without any
God? I have witnessed that sad spectacle.
But we want grace, we want Divine grace,
when bereavement comes into the house
which erst was fall of sanny locks and
greetings at the door, and kisses dung by
little hands from the window as you went
down the iront steps, and the doves
in the ne&t cry because the hawk
swoop«, and tee cheek pales, and the eyes
close, and the heart stops Oh, to put away
garments that never will be worn »gain,to
gather up from the floor toys that never
again will strew the carpet, and to go with
a sense of suffocation through the desola
ted household that once rang with childish
merriment! Oh. my God! who can stand
that without Thy grace to help, without
Thy grace to Bmoothe, without Thy grace
to comfort? Oh, you will nant Christ in
voar first trouble, and so I beg of you this
morniDg to take Him as yours
You say you are strong and well. So
am 1. You say that life is buoyant aud
beautiful. So it is to me. But sickness
will come to you and it will come to me.
We shall be told we cannot go out, the
door will be closed against the world, there
will be two watches, aud Home will order
silence on the stairs, saying: ' Hush!
bash!" and in your dream you will hear the
dash of water which you will take to be the
beating of the wave of the Jordan against
your pillow, and you will hear a sound at
the gate which you will take to be the paw
ing of tha pile horae. Ohl theu you and
I will want a phyiiciau; we will want
Christ to come in and put Hia arms around
us and say: "Fear not; all is well, all is
But there is one more puss of great im
portance, of which I must speak—one tre
mendous criais, when we will want God. 1
say that not more to you than I do to my
self. We will want God in that crisis.
And that pass is
I suppose we all would like to expire at
nome. We waut our friends in the room,
sorno to recite the promise, some to sin#,
one to hold the h^nd. We want to look
up iu face» that have been familiar to us a
£ojd while and we will have messages to
give. It we are parents, we will want to
tell our children how they ought, to act
when we are gone, what principles they
«ugh: to adopt, how near they ought to live
ro God.
And if we have aged parents living, we
will want to tell our children how they
ought to act toward the old people, how
they ought to care for them alter we are
gone. I think when we leave this world
we will all have a message to give to some
body. When that hour comes wo will
want Christ, we will want a divine friend
to s and by us, and to say that all shall be
well in the future. "When thou pjasest
through the waters I will be with thee, and
through the rivers they shall rot overflow
thee." But you know very well that if we
go out of this world, my brother, without
Christ, we take a leap into the dark.
Who would want to go out of the world
like that when h«t can go in triumph inde
ecribible? Like Paul saying: "I have
fought the good fight, I have finished mj
course, I have kept the faith;
henceforth there is laid up foi
me a crown of righteousness
«dich the Lord, the righteous Judge, will
give me.'" 0! that other bat:le shout:
0 death, where is thy sting? 0 grave

God who giveth me the victory through
my Lord Jesus Christ
Well, there are a good many men it
this house who say: "What you have de
clared this morning is the truth, but I atr
so far gone in sin that there is no hope foi
me." 0 my brothers! there you make t
great mistake. I stand here this morn

who wants to come to God. "Let thi

I Come this morning. ' '0," you say, "i

pAKkKRSB'Ro, December i —Last
night's train from Grafton brought in Mrs
Jaue Shiött? in search ot a truant husbatd,
! whom she claimed was now living with
i Mrs. Rhulina Shitlett Christy as man and
j wife. She proceeded to police headquar

basking in the smiles of his fair charmer,

hearing before Btcorder Conley this morn
ing, wu nek, rare and racy, hat woo Id M
look well in print. The evidence did not
sustain the charge of Mrs. Shitlett and her

: developed the fact however, that Mrs
Ctristy, with whom ShiSeit was found
I last night, was his divorced wife, who was
! the mother of 11 children by him, bat has
! been divorced for five years. It also ap
peared that Mrs. Christy g present husiand

in Cincinnati. He was implicated in rob
| bing a mau named Steward, here, of $300,
but eluded the officers and escaped to Ohio
Both women in the case hive been married
three times, and their hnsbande, with one
j exception, are living. The
evidence also discloaed some very

; lived in Wood county, at Volcano, that he
and his wife went to West Union, Dod
dridge county, and obtained a divorce from
Mat or Gano, of that place, and that he
aud Shitlett had signed the paper without
reading it. Twenty children had been
borne by the two women during the stormy
years ot their maniei life. When Ra ;
corder Couley discharged Shiflcti hi« wife
No. 3 caught him by the arm and led him
from the court room, and, with blood in i

Last week nine competent architect!
laid before the County Commissioner!
plans, designs and specifications for the
erection of a new Court House. Some ol
the designs are beautiful pieces of work
and are from the hands of draughtsmen
from different parts of the country
M-wrs. Stanton M. Howard, o!
Wheeling, in conjunction with a
Mr. Yost, of Columbus, Ohio, submitted
aa elegant design, which the writer exam
ined greatly to bis satisfaction, and which,
if accepted, would place old Harrison
county in possession of one of the most
complete and handsomest court houses in
the country. The plans of Mr. C. L. Hick'
man, of Clarksburg, and Mr. Bunting, ol
Indianapolis, are also complete in struc
tural design and beautiful contour. An;
one of tbe three wobld be acceptable to the
people of Harrison, it is thought, and it ii
probable that one of them will be accepted
The Commissioners met to decide
which one is the most suitable, in a prac
tical as well m a financial point of view.
A gentleman prominently connected with
the interests of the county said :
"While they are about it, they may as
well erect a fine buildiotr. even though it
coat more than it is thought the county
can stand at present. The present genera
tion will not receive all the benefit of it,
and the Commissioners ihould issue bonds,
payable in ten, twenty, or thirtj years,
tbus allowing ihoae who come after us help
pay the debt; lor which they get value re
It is understood that Mr. H. T. I.ounJes
will, when the robins nest again, tear away
the old Walker Hotel, and on the site upon
which it now totters, erect a commodioua
and thoroughly apportioned hotel. Thia
is what Clarksburg has lone needed,
and Mr. Loandea ia the man
to push a public benefit to rapid comple
tion. In addition to these the Govern
ment building will, abgut the same time,
commence to grow under the hrnds of a
large force of workmen, with Mr. C. L.
Hickman as superintendent of construc
tion. Putting ibid, that add it together,
h oik will be furnished a large force of
