AT THE TAJiEKNACLE.
THE INGATHERING SEASON THE OC CASION OF AN IMPORTANT LESSON. Xhr.Talmage Think the A nclents Were Ae- qnainted wlth-Our American Corn The Barrett of thm Tear but a Foreshadow- lug of the llarvot of Karth. ' Beookltn, Nov. S7. Kev. Dr. Talmage today cboiie for his subject of discourse one eminently suited to the time following the Ingathering? of the harvests and to the thanksgiving season. The decorations of the Thanksgiving day still remained on the platform and the galleries, and long rows of yellow and white corn on the front and back of the platform were in accord with the sermon. The text selected was Job t, 80, "As a shock of corn cometh in in his season." This Is the time of the year for husking corn. If you have recently been in the fields of Pennsylvania, or New Jersey, or New York, or New England, or in any of the country districts, you know that the corn is all out. Tho sharp knife struck through the stalks and left them nil along the fields until a man came with a bundle of straw and twisted a few of these wisps of straw into a band, and then, gathering up as much of the corn as he could compass with his arms, he bound it with this wisp of straw, and then stood it in the field in what is called a shock. There are now at least two billion bushels of corn. either standing in the shock or having been al ready husked. The farmers gather one day on one farm and then another day on another farm, and they put ou their rough husking apron, and they take the husking peg, which is a piece of iron with a leath ern loop fastened to the hand, and with it tinsbeath the corn from the hunk and toss It into tho golden heap. Then the wagons some along and take it to the corncrib. TUB BIBLE USES CORN AS A TYPE. About corn as an important cereal or earn as a metaphor the bible is constantly speaking. You know about the people in famine coming to buy corn of Joseph, and the foxes on lire running into tho ''stand ing corn," and about the oxen treading out the corn, and about the seven thin ears of corn that in Pharoah's dream devoured tho seven good ears, and the "parched corn" handed to boautif ul Hutu by the harvest ers of Bethlehem, and Abigail's five meas ures of "parched corn," with which she hoped to appease the enimiiesof her drunk en husband, and David's description of the valleys "covered over with corn," and "tho handful of corn in the earth," and "thefull corn in the ear," and Christ's Sabbath morning walk through corn Uelds, and tho disciples "plucking ears of corn," and so I am not surprised to find corn husking time referred to in my text, "As a shock of corn cometh in in his season." How vividly to all those of us who were born In the country comes tho remem brance of husking time. Wo waited for it as for a gala day of the year. It was called a frolic. The trees having for the most part shed their foliage, t he fanners waded through the fallen leaves and came through the keen morning air to the glee ful company. The frosts, which had sil vered everything during the night, began to melt olf the top of the corn shocks. While the farmers were waiting for others they stood blowing their breath through their fingers or thrashing their arms around their body to keep up warmth of circulation. Roaring mirth greeted the late farmer as ho crawled over the fence. Joke and repartee anil rustic salutation abounded. All ready now! The men take hold of the shock of corn and hurl it prostrate, while the moles and mice which have secreted themselves there for warmth attempt escape. The withe of straw is unwound lioiu the corn shock, and the stalks heavy wit h the wealth of grain are rolled into two bundles, between which the busker Bltsdown. The husking peg is thrust in until it strikes the corn, and then the lingers rip oil the sheathing ot the ear, and there is a crack as the root of the corn is snapped oil from the husk, and the grain disimprisoned is hurled tip Into the sunlight. The air in so tonic, the work is so very exhilarating, the company Is so blithe that some laugh, and some bout, and some sing, and some banter, and some tease a neighbor for a romantic rldo along tho edge of the woods iu an eventide in a carriage that holds but two, and some prophesy as to the number of bushels to tho field, and others go into competition as to which shall rille the most corn shocks before sundown. After awhile the dinner horn sounds from the farmhouse, and the table is sur rounded by a group of jolly and hungry men. From all the pantries and the cel lars and the perches of fowl on the place the richest dainties come, and there is carnival and neighborhood reunion, and a scene which fills our memory, part with smiles, but more with tears, as we remem ber that the farm belongs now to other uwncrs, and other hands gather In tho Held, and many of those who mingled in that merry husking scene have themselves been reaped "like as a shock of corn com eth in in his season." THKRB 18 NO DKATII TO THIS CHKISTI AN. 1 There is a difference of opinion as to Whether the orientals knew anything about the corn as it. stands in our fields, but recent discoveries have found out that the Hebrew knew all about Indian maize, for there have been grains of corn picked up out of ancient crypts and exhumed from hilling places where they were put down many cent iirics ago, anil they have been planted in our time nud have como up Just such Indian mai.e as we raise in New York and Ohio; so 1 am right when I say that my text may refer to a shock of corn Just as you mid 1 bound it; just as you and 1 threw it; just as you and I husked it. There may come some practical and useful and comforting lessons to all our souls while wo think of coming in at last "like a shock of corn cometh in in his season." It is high time that the King of Terrors were thrown out of the Christian vocab ulary. A vast multitude of people talk of death as though it were the disaster of disasters, instead of being to a good man the blessing of blessings. It in moving out of a cold vestibule into a warm temple. It Is migrating into groves of redolence and fierpetual fruitage. It U' a change from (leak March to roseMe dune. It. is a change of manacles lor garlands. It is the trantmuting of the iron handcuffs of earthly luoareernt'.et into the diamonded wristlets of a bridal party, or, to use t he lUKgesttnn of my text, it is only huskiug lime. H Is the tearing off of the rough thsath of the Inxly that the bright and the beautiful soul tuny ro free. Coming In "like a shock of corn cometh in In bis sea son." Christ broke up a funeral proces sion at the gate of Nain by making a resnrrcctlon day for h tmiug man and his moths, and I would that 1 could break Up jour sadnesses n;"i halt the long funeral procession oi inc woi a. s gnei ny one entering aud ilniif I olf ul I in last transition. We all know that huskiug time was a time of frost. Front on the fence; frost On the stubble; frost on the ground; frost' on the bare branches of the trees; frost In the air; frost on the hands of the buskers.' You rememlK'r we ucd to hide hrt wr. n the corn stacks so as to keep off the wiiid, j but still you remember how shivering v. a the body and how painful was the cheek, and how benumbed were the hands, lint after awhile the nun was high up. and all the frosts went out of the a'r, and bilarl tint awakened the eelioe. and tov from one corn sins k wont up, "Aha, ahal' "a w answered bv joy from another corn shock, "Aba, aha!'' So i all realize that tin death of our friend is the nipping of many expectations, the freezing. t'" chilling, the frostbit! of many of our hopes. It is fat from being south wind. It comes out of the frigid north, and when tbey go away from us wt stand be numbed in body and ben a robed in mind and benumbed in soul. We stand among our dead neighbors, our dead families, and we say, "Will we ever get over itf" Tee, we will get over it amid the shoutings of heavenly reuuloo, and we will look back to all these distresses of bereavement only as the temporary distresses of busking time. "Weeping may endure for a night, but Joy cometh in the morning." "Light, and but for a moment," said the apostle as he clapped his hands; "light, and but for moment." The chill of the frosts followed by the gladness that cometh in "like a shock of corn cometh in in his season." I 1 f ...... . flu. l.ul.v ...u,ln .Alt ( work with the ear of corn. The husking peg bod to be thrust in, and the hard thumb of the husker had to come down ou the swathing of the ear, and then there was a pull and there was a ruthless tear ing, aud then a complete snapping off be fore the corn was free, and if the husk could have spoken it would have said: "Why do you lacerate mef Why do you wrench me?" Ah, my friends, that is the way God has arranged that the ear and husk shall part, and that is the way he has arranged that the body and the soul shall separate. You can afford to have your physical distresses when you know that they are only forwarding the soul's liberation. Every rheumatic pain is only a plunge of the huskiug peg. Every neu ralgic twinge Is only a twist by the hunker. There is gold in you that must some out. gome way the shackle must be broken. Some way the ship must be laanched for heavenly voyage. You must let the Heav enly Husbandman husk off the mortality from the immortality. There ought to be great consolation in this for all who have chronic ailments, since the Lord is gradu ally and more mildly taking away from you that whichJilnders your soul's libera tion, doing gradually for you what for many of us in robust health perhaps he will do in one fell blow at the last. At the close of every illness, at the close of every paroxysm, you ought to say, "Thank God, that Is nil past now; thank God, I will never have to suffer that again; thank God, I am so much nearer the hour of lib eration." You will never suffer the same pain twice. You may have a new pain in an old place, but never the same pain twice. The pain does its work and then it dies. Just so many plunges of the crtwbar to free the tpiarry stone for the building. , Just so many strokes of the chisel to complete the statue. Just so many pangs to separate the soul from the body. You who have chronic ailments and disorders are only paying in installments that which some of us will havo to pay in one payment when we pay the debt of nature. Thank God, therefore, ye who have cbronlo disorders, that, you have so much less suffering at the last. Thank God that you will have so much less to feel in the way of pain at the hands of tho Heavenly Husbandman when "the shock of corn cometh in in his Benson." THE BOIUiOWS OF THIS LIM. Perhaps now this may be an answer to a question which I asked one Sabbath morn ing, but did not nnswer, Why is it that so many really good people have so dread fully to suffer? You often find a good man with enough pains and aches and dis tresses, you would think, to discipline a whole colony, while you will find a man who is perfectly useless going about with easy digestion and steady nerves and shin ing health, and his exit from the world Is comparatively painless. How do you ex plain that? Well, I noticed in the husking time that the husking peg was thrust into the corn, and then there must be a stout pull before the swathing was taken off the ear and tho full, round, healthy, luxuriant corn was developed, while, on the other hand, there was corn that hardly seemed, worth husking. We threw that into a place all by Itself, and wo called it nubbins. Some of it was mildewed, and some of it waa mice nibbled, and some of it was great promise and no fulfillment. All cobs and no corn. Nubbins! After the good corn had been driven up to the barn we came around with the corn basket, and we picked up these nubbins. They were worth saving, but not worth much. So all around us there aro people who amount to compara tively nothing. They develop Into no kind of usefulness. They are nibbled on one side by tho world, and nibbled on the other side bv the devil, and mildewed all over. Great nromise and no fulfillment. All eobs and no corn. Nubbins! They are worth saving. 1 suppose many of them will get to heaven, but they are not worthy to be mentioned in the same day with those who went through great tribulation into the kingdom of our God. Who would not rather have the pains of this life, the misfortunes of this life who would not rather be torn and wounded ami lacerated and wrenched and husked and at last go in amid the very best grain of tho granery than to be pronounced not worth husking at all? Nubbins? Iu other words, I want to say to you people who havo distress of body and distress in busi ness ami dist ress of all sorts, tho Lord has not any grudge against you. It is not de rogatory; it is complimentary. "Whom the Lord loveth he ehasteneth," and it is proof positive that there is something valuable in you, or the Lord would not have husked you. RKJOICK TOGETHER. You remember also that in the time of husking it was a neighborhood reunion, liy the great fireplace in the winter, the fires roaring around the glorified backlogs on an old fashioned hearth, of which the modern stoves and registers are only the degenerate descendants, the farmers used to gather and spend tho evening, and there would be much sociality; but it was not anything like the joy of the husking time, for then all the farmers came, and they came iu the very best humor, and they came from beyond the meadow, and they came from beyond the brook, aud they came from regions two and three miles around. Good spirits reigned supreme, and there were great handshakings, and there was carnival, and there was the recital or the brightest experience In all their lives, and there was a neighborhood reunion the memory of which makes all the nerves of my body tremble with emotion as the strings of a harp when the fingers of the player have swept the chords. The husk ing time was the time of neighborhood re union, and so heaven will be just that. There they come up! They slept in the old village churchyard. There they eorne nnl Tliev reclined amid the fountains and the sculpture and the parterres of a city cemetery. There they come up! They went down when the ship foundered off fane Hat terns. They come un from all sides from potter's field and out of the solid masonry of Westminster abbey, They come up! They rome up! All the hindrances to thrlr lietter nature husked off. All their spiritual despond encies husked off. All their hindrances I 1.0 IIHCIU UCSS JIUSKeU OU. ! golden grain, the (iod fashioned grain, visible and conspicuous.

All kings and queens, -all song sters, all millionaires, all banqueters. God the Father with his children all around him. No "goodby" in all the air. No grave cut In all the hills. River of crystal rolling over bed of pearl, under arch of Chrysoprase, into seas of glass mingled With fire. Stand at the gate of the granary and see the grain come in; out of the frosts into the sunshine, out of the darkness into the light, out of the tearing, and the rip ping, and the twisting, and the wrenching and lacerating, and the husking time of earth into the wide open door of the king's granary "like as a shock of Corn cometh i in in his season." s i THE BOCIKTT OF HEAVE If, Tee, heaven is a great sociable, with joy like the joy of husking time. No one there feeling so big he declines to speak to some one that is not so large. Archangel will ing to listen to smallest cherub. No bolt ing of the door of caste at one heavenly mansion, to keep out the citizen of a smaller mansion. ..No clique in one corner whisper ing about a clique in another corner. David taking hone of the airs of a giant killer; Joshua making no one halt until he passes, because he made the bud and moon halt; Paul making no assumption over the most ordinary preacher of righteousness; JNaa man, captain of the Syiian host, no more honored than the captive maid who told him wherehe oould get a good doctor. Oh, my soul, what a country! The humblest man a king, the poorest woman a queen, the meanest house a palace, the shortest lifetime eternity. And what is more strange about it all is we may all get there. "Not I," says some one standing back under the galleries. Yes, you. "Not I," says some one who has not been in church in fifteen years before. Yes, you. "Not I," says ndiut M who has been for fifty years filling up his life with all kinds of wickedness. Yes, you. There are monop olies on earth monopolistic railroads aud monopolistic telegraph compaulcs and mo nopolistic grain dealers, but no monopo lies in religion. All who want to be saved may be saved, "without money and with out price." Salvation by the Lord Jesus Christ for all the people. Of course nse common sense in this matter. You can not expect to get to Charleston, by taking the ship for Portland, and you cannot get to heaven by going in an opposite direc--tlon. Believe in the Lord Jesus Christ aud thou shalt ha saved. Through that one gate of pardon and peace all the race may go in. ALL WILL BE AT HOME THKItK. "But," says some one, "do you really think I would be at home in that supernal society if I should reach It?" ; I think you would. I know you would. I remember that in the busking time there was a great equality of feeling among the neighbors. There at one corn shock a farmer would be at work who owned two hundred acres of ground. The man whom he was talking with at tho next corn shock owned, but thirty acres of ground, and perhaps all that covered by a mortgage. That evening, at the close of the husking day, one man drove home a roan span so frisky, so full of life they got their feet over the traces. The other man walked home. Great difference in education, great difference in worldly means, but I noticed at the husking time they all seemed to enjoy each other's society. They did not ask any man how much property he owned or what bis education bad been. They all seemed to bo happy together in those good times. And so It will be in heaven. Our Father will gather bis children around him, and the neighbors will come in, and the past will be rehearsed. And some one Will tell of victory, and we will all celeurale it. And some one will tell of great strug gle, and we will all praise tho grace that fetched him out of it. And some one will say: "Here is my oiu tatucr mat put away with heartbreak. Just look at him! He is as young as any of nsi" And some one will snyi "Here is my dar ling child that I hurled In Greenwood, and all the after years of my life were shad owed with desolation. Just look at herl She doesn't seem as If she had been sick a mlnutel" Great sociality. Great neigh borhood kindness. Go In and dine. What though John Milton sit down ou one side and John Howard sit down on the other side? No embarrassment. What though Charlotte Elizabeth alt down on one side and Hannah More sit down on the other side? No embarrnssment. A monarch yourself, why be embarrassed among mon archsf A songster yourself, why be em barrassed among glorified songsters? Go in and dine. All the shocks of corn coming in in their season. Oh, yes, in tht-lr se.isnu. Not one of you having died too soon, or having died too late, or having died at haphazard. Planted at Just the right time. Plowed at Just the right time. Cut down at just the right time. Husked at just the right time. Garnered at Just the right time. Coming in in your season. Oh, I wish that the two billion bush Is of tern now in the fields or on their way to th seaboard might be a typeof the grand yield of honor and glory and immortality whett all the shocks corns in. TUB MEMORIES OK TOOT I do not know how you are constituted, but I am so constituted that then Is noth ing that so awakens remlDltceoees in me as the odors of a corn Geld when I cross it at this time of year after the corn has been cnt and It stands in shocks. And so I have thought it might be practically useful for ns today to cross the corn field, and I have thought perhaps there might be eorne reminiscence roused in our soul that night be salutary and might be saving. In Sweden a prims douoa. while her house to the oity ,wa being repaired, took a house in the country for temporary resi dence, and she brought out her great array of jewels to show a friend who wished to see them. One night after displaying these Jewels aud leaving them on the table, and all her friends had irone. and the servants had gone one summer nijlht she sat thinking and looking into a mirror just in trout of her chair, when she saw in thatmlrrorthe face of a robber looking in at the window behind her and gor.ing at those jewels. She was In great fright, but sat still, and hardly knowing why she did so she began to sing an old nursery soDg, her fears mak ing the pathos of the song more telling. Suddenly she noticed, while looking at the to I before cuttau mirror, that the robber's race had gone from the window, and it did not come back. A few days after the prima donna re ceived a letter from the robber, saying, "I heard that the jewels were to be out that night, and I came to take them at what ever hazard, but when I heard you sing that nursery song with which my mother so often sang me to sleep I could not stand it, and I fled, and I have resolved upon a new and honest life." Ob, my friends, there are Jewels ill peril richer than, those which lay upon (hat ta ble that night. They are the jewels of the immortal soul. Would God that some song rolling up out of the deserted nursery of your childhood, or some song rolling up out of the corn fields, the song of the husk ers twenty or forty years ago, might turn all our feet out of the paths of sin into the nalhs of righteousness. Would God that those memories wafted In on odor or song might start us .this moment with swift feet toward that blessed place where so many of our loved ones have already pre ceded us "as a shock of corn cometh in in bis season." . r , j The Color of the Blood. Having recently examined a' large num ber of specimens of human bloody from persons' of different" ages, ranging from four to seventy-six years, some being those In robust health, others being tuberculous, I was struck with tho great difference in the shade of color presented, some being of a very rich tint, others very pale. The richest color was iu the blood of a girl twenty-six years of age, a graduate of Vas sar college, who had the highest anthropo- metic measurement for respiratory capaci ty in a class of about 500 girls. Her health was excellent, and she consumed rather more flesh food than is usual. The next highest tint was found in the blood of a woman about seventy years old, with a somewhat unusual chest measure ment, having also excellent respiratory capacity and being in fine health. This woman, on the contrary, does not eat iiesh at all. I expected in ber case to find a more than ordinary number of white blood corpuscles, but there were far less than usual, it being difficult to find them, they Were so few. The palest blood was from a chlorotio servant girl of twenty-live years and in a tuberculous boy of four. There was not. much perceptible difference In their cases. The girl had naturally good respiratory power, but she had lessened it by tight clothing aud an almost constant indoor life for a long timo. After spending a month at the seasido I examined her blood again aud found the tint somewhat deeper than before. At, L. Holbrook in Science. ODD3 AND END3.

Jealousy In Infanta, Of my two children one Is a boy of four vears. the other a cirl of ten months. The boy has Just returned home after an b aeuce of some months. His sister displays treat affection for him. She is also much attached to her nurse more so at times apparently than to any other member of the household.' Now if, while the girl is Sluing on a mat alcne or on the lap of either of her parents, the nurse should take the boy upon her knee and fondle him, the Rirl will immediately cry out in a distressful way, in a toue not precisely indicative of anger or vexation, but more nearly similar to the tone of grief or disappointed desire. In the ease described the infant will not le ap-neast-d unless the nurse pute down the boy and takes her un. It will not avail for tba nurse to take her up on one knee, leaving the bov on the other. If. however, while the nurse has the In fant inner arms, either of the parents takes up the boy aud caresses hiin the gin dis plays only a strong interest, but no annoy ance whatever.
