Sermon at tlc Capital.
PlCV. Dr. Ta Image's sen.i"n in Wash
ington last Sumlay was a picture of the
road that many have traveled and others
are trying to .vet on and is no more appro
priate for the capital of the nation than
for all places. The text chosen w as Isaiah
xxxv.. S. . 10: "And an highway shall be
there, and a way, and it shall be called the
way of holiness. The unclean shall not
pass over it. but it shall be for those; the
wayfaring men. though fools, shall not
err therein. No lion shall be there, nor
ßny ravenous beast shall P up thereon,
it shall not be found there, but the re
det med shall walk there, and the ran
somed of the Lord shall return and come
to Zion with son-s ami e-urlastinsr jy
upon their heads. They shall obtain joy
and gladness, ami sorrow and Mhins
hhall i! o aw ay."
There are hundreds of people in this
house who want to hud the riVit road.
You sometimes sec a person haltin:: at
cross roads, and you can tell by his looks
that he wid.es to ask a question as to
what direction be had better take. And
I stand in your presence conscious of the
fact that there ate many of you hen- who
realize that there are a thousand wron
roads, but only one rljcht one, and I take
it for "ranted that you have come in to
ask wlii!i ne it is. lb-re is one road
that opens widely, bi:t 1 have not much
faith iri it. There are a irreat many ex
pensive tolljrr.tes scattered all ahm;: that
way. Indeed at every rod von must pay
in tears, or pay in jreini.lexioi'.s. or pay in
flagellations. On that road, if you p-t
thro::h it at all. you have to pay your
own way. and since this differs so much
from wiwtt I ln've heard in regard to the
r!;rht way. 1 believe it is the wrn.;' way.
Hero is another road. n either side of
it are houses of sinful entertainment and
invitations to come in and dine and rest,
but from the looks of tic people who stand
on the piazza I am certain it is the wronu'
house and the wronjr way. Here is an
other road. It is very beautiful and mac
adamized. The horses hoofs clatter and
rin;r. and they who ride over it spin nlomr
the highway, until suddenly they find that
the road breaks over an embankment, and
thiy try to halt, and they seize the bit in
the tnoutlt of the fiery steed ami ery: "IIo
llnl" lint it is too late, ami. crash! they
po over the embankment. We shall turn
ami see if we cannot lind n different kind
of road. You have lcard of the Appia:.
way. It was ."."Vo miles lonjr. It was 1' I
feet wide, ami on either side of the road
was a path for foot passengers. t was
made out of rocks cut in hexajronical
idiapo and fitted together. What a road
it must have been! Made of smooth, hard
rock, ÖÖ0 miles loiitf. No wonder that in
the construction of it the treasureH of a
whole empire were exhausted. 1 teen use of
invaders, and the elements, ami time the
old conqueror who tears up a road as he
goes over it there is nothing left of that
structure but a ruin. Hut I have to tell
you of a road built before the Appian
way, and yet it is as good as when tirst
constructed. Millions of souls have gone
over it. Millions more will come.
The prophets and apostles, too.
Pursued this road while here below.
We therefore will, without dismay.
Still walk in Christ, the good old way.
The King' Highway.
First, this road of the text is the king's
highway. In the diligence you dash on
over the Bernard pass of the Alps, mile
after mile, and there is not so much as a
pebble to jar the wheels. You go over
bridges which cross chasms that make
you hold your breath, tinder projecting
rock, along by dangerous precipices,
through tunnels adrip with the meltings
of the glaciers, and perhaps for the first
time learn the majesty of a road built and
supported by governmental authority.
Well, my Ird and King decided to build
a highway from earth to heaven. It
should span all the chasms of human
wretchedness. It should tunnel all the
mountains of earthly difficulty. It should
be wide enough and strong enough to hold
öO,( mo,0OO.Om,0 nt of the human race, if
so many of them should ever be born. It
should be blasted out of the "Kock of
Ages," and cemented with the blood of
the cross, and be lifted amid the shout
ing of angels and the exo ration of devils.
The King sent his S n to build that road,
lie put load and baud and heart to it,
and after the road was completed waved
his blistered hand over the way, crying,
"It is finished!" Napoleon paid 1.",M0,
xx frams for the building of the Nim
plon road that his cannon might go over
for the devastation of Italy, but our King
at a greater expense has built a road for
a different purpose that the banners of
heavenly dominion might come down over
it. Höing a king's highway, of course- it
li well built. Uridges splendidly arched
and abut tressed have given way and
crushed the passengers who attempted to
cross them. P.ut Christ ti e King would
build no such thing as that. The work
done, he mounts the chariot of his love
ami multitudes mount with him. and lie
drives on and up the steep of heaven
amid the plaudits of ga:nng worlds! The
work is dor.or-wcll done gloriously done
magnificently done.
A Clean Iioari.
Still further, this road sjM.ken of is a
clean road. Many a line road has become
miry and foul because it has not be;ti
properly cared for, but my text says the
unclean shall not walk on this one. Koom
on either side to throw away your sins.
Indeed, if you want to carry them along,
you are not on the right road. That
bridge will break, those overhanging
rocks will fall, the night will come down,
leaving you at the mercy of the mountain
bandits, ami at the very next turn of the
road you will perish. lint if you are
really on this clean road of which I have
been speaking, then you will stop ever
und a mn to wash in the water that stands
in the basin of the eternal rock.
Aye, nt almost every step of the jour
ney you will be crying out, "Create with
in me a clean In-art!" If you have no
such aspirations as that, it proves that
you have mistaken your way. and if you
will only look up and see the linger board
above your head you may read upon it
the words, "There is a way that secmeth
right unto a man. but the end thereof is
death." Without holiness no man shall
see the Ijord, ami if you have any idea
that you can carry along your sins, your
lusts, your worldliuess, and yet get ui tlw
end of the Christian race, you are so aw
fully mistaken that, in the name of Cod,
1 shutter the delusion.
A Plain Koad.
Still further, the road spoken of is a
plain road. "The v. :; y faring men, though j
fools, shall not err therein" that is, if a j
man is three-fourths an idiot, he can find j
t!iis road just :;s well as if he were a phi- j
losopher. The imbecile boy, the laughing j
stock of the street, and followed by a iiei j
hooting at him, has only just to T lock
once at the gate of heaven. and it swings
open, while there has been many a man
who could lecture about pneumatics and
chemistry and tell the story of Faraday's
theory of electrical polarization and yet
has been shut out of heaven. There has
been many a man who stood in an observ
atory and swept the heavens with his tele
scope and yet has not been able to see the
morning star. Many a man has been fa
miliar with all the higher branches of
mathematics and yet could not do the
simple stun, "What shall it profit a man
if he gain the whole world and lose his
own soul:" Many a man has been a fine
reader of tragedies and poems and yet
could not "read his title clear to man
sions in th skies."
Many a man has botanized the conti
nent and yet mt know n the Hose of Shar
on, and the Lily of the Valley. Hut if
one shail come in the right spirit, asking
the way to heaven, he will find it a plain
way. The pardon is plain. The peace is
plain. Hverything is plain. He who tries t
to get oil the road to heaven through the
New T stau. cut torching w ill got on beau
tifully, lie who goes through philosophi
cal discussion will not get on at all. Christ
says, "Come to me and 1 will take all
your sins away, and I wiil take all your
troubles away." Now, what is the use
of my discussing it any more'.' Is not that
plain? If you wanted to o to some city,
and I pointed you out a highway thorough
ly laid tmt, would I be wise in detaining
oii by a geological discussion about the
gravel you will pass over, or a physiologi
cal discussion about tlie muscles you will
have to bring into playV No. After this
Hilde has pointed you the way to heaven,
is it wise for me to detain you wi;h any
discussion about the nature of the human
will, or whetlnr the atonement is limite.T
: unlimited? There is the road -go on it.
It is a plain way. "This is a faithful
saying ami worthy of all acceptation that
Christ .Icmis came into the world to save
sinners." And that is you and that, is
me. Any little child hen- can understand
this as well as I can. "I'nb-ss you bo
come as a little child you ciinnot see the
kingdom of (Jod." If yov are saved, it
will not' be as a philosopher; it will be as
a lUtle child. "Of stich is the kingdom
of heaven." Unless you get the spirit of
little children you will never come out
at their glorious destiny.
A Safe Ifoad.
Still further, this road to heaven is v.
safe road. Sometimes the traveler in
those am ient highways would think him
self perfectly secure, not knowing there
was a lion by the way, burying his head
deep between his paws, and then, when
the right moment came, under the fearful
spring the man's life was gone, and there
was a mauled carcass by the roadside.
Hut, says my text, "No lion shall be
there." I wish I could make you feel your
entire security. I tell you plainly that
one minute after a man has become a
child of Cod he is as safe as though he had
been 10,MK) years in heaven. lie may
slip. be may slide, he may stumble, but
he cannot le destroyed; kept by the power
of Hod, through faith, unto complete sal
vation, everlastingly safe. The severest
trial to which you ran subject a Chris
tian man is to kill him, and that is glory.
In other words, the worst thing that can
happen a child of Cod is heaven. The
body is only the old slippers that he
throws aside just before putting on the
sandals of light. His soul, you cannot
hurt it. No tires can consume it; no Hoods
can drown it; no devils can capture it.
Finn and unmoved are they
Who rest their souls on Clod;
Fixed as the ground where David stood.
Or where the ark abode.
His soul is safe. His reputation is safe.
Hverything is safe. "Hut." you say. "sup
pose his store burns upV" Why, then it
will be only a change of investments from
earthly to heavenly securities. "Hut,"
you say, "suppose his name goes down
under the hoof of scorn and contempt':"
The name will be so much brighter in
glory. "Suppose his physical health fails':"
Cod will pour into him the Hoods of ever
lasting health, and it will not make any
difference. Farthly subtraction is heav
enly addition. The tears of earth are the
crystals of heaven. As they take rags
and tatters and put them through the paper
mill, and they come out beautiful white
sheets of paper, so often the rags of earth
ly destitution, under the cylinders of
death, come out a white scroll upon which
shall be written eternal emancipation.
There was one passage of Scripture the
force of which I never understood until
one day at Chamounix, with Mont Ulane
on one side and Montanvert on the other,
I opened my Hilde ami read, "As the
mountains are around about Jerusalem, so
the Lord is around about them that fear
him." The surroundings w ere an omnipo
tent commentary.
Though troubles assail and dangers af
fright. Though friends should all fail and foes
all unite.
Yet one thing secures us, whatever be
tide, The Scripture assures us the Lord will
A PlcaHant Kond.
Still further, the road spoken of is a
pleasant road. Cod gives a bond of in
demnity against all evil to every man that
treads it. "All things work together for
good to those who love Cod." NoweaiMn
formed against them can prosper. That
is ttie bond, signed, sealed and delivered
by the president of the whole universe.
What is the use of your fretting, O child
oi Cod, about food? "Heboid the fowls
of the air, for they sow not, neither do
they reap, mr gather into barns. Yet your
Heavenly. Father foedcth them." And
will he take tare of the sparrow, will he
take care of the raven, will he take rare
of the hawk and let you die? What is the
use of your fretting about clothes? "Con
sider the lilies of the field. Shall he not
much more clothe you, () ye of little
faith?" What is the use of worrying for
fear something w ill happen to your home?
"lie blessefh the habitation of the just."
What is the use of your fretting lest you
will be overcome of temptations? "Cod
is faithful, who will not suffer you to be
tempted above that ye tire able, but will
with the temptation also make a way to
escape that ye may be able to bear it."
Oh, this King's highway! Trees of life
on either side, bending over until their
branches interlock and drop midway their
fruit nnd shade. Houses of entertain
ment a either sid the road for poor yil-
rims. Tables spread with a feast of good
liings, and walls adorned with apples of
gold in pictures of .silver. 1 start out on
this King's highway, ami I find a harper,
and I say. "What is yov.r name;" Tho
harper makes iu repo;.se, but leaves mo
to guess as with his eyes toward heaven
and his hand upon the trembling strings
t Iiis tune comes rippling on the air: "The
Lord is my lijfht and my salvation. Whom !
shall I fear? The Lord is ihe strength of
my life. Of whom shall I be afraid?"
I go a little farther .m the same roail
and meet a trumpeter of heaven, and I
say. "Haven't ymi get some music for a
tired pilgrim:" And. wiping bis lips and
taking a long breath, he puts his mouth to
the trumpet and pours forth this strain.
"They shall hunger no more, neither shall
they thirst any more, neither shall the.
sunlight on them, mir any heat, for tho
Lamb which is in the midst of the throne
shall lead them to living fountains of
water, and Cod shall wipe away all tear
from tluir eyes." I go a little distance
farther on the same road, and I meet a
maiden of Israel. She has no harp, but
she has cymbals. They look as if t h:tr
had rusted fnuu sea spray, and I say to
th.e maiden ef lracl: "Have you no son?;
for a tired pilgrim?" And. like the clang
of victors shields-, the cymbals clap as
Miriam begins to discourse: "Sing y to
the Lord, for he hath triumphed glori
ously. The horse and the rider hath ho
thrown into the sea." And then I see a
white robed group. They come bounding
toward mo. ami 1 say. "Who are they?
The happiest, and the brightest, and tho
fairest in all heaven who are they?" And
answer comes.

The Terioiinis,
I pursue this subject only one step far
titer. What is the terminus': 1 do not
care how line a road yu put me en, I
want to know where it comes out. My
text declares it. "The redeemed of ihq
Lord come to Zion." You know what Zion
was. That was tho king's palace. It was
a mountain fastness.

the right moment.

to recount with great glee how he hail

"How many fish are there in tho

The metal glucinium, hitherto a
chemical rarity, is likely to come for
ward as a useful material, especially
in electrical work. It is only twice as
heavy as water, and is, therefore, even
lighter than aluminum. It Is a good

an electric conductivity greater than
that of ctpper. It is more dura hi.'
