Tho Art of Making Friends Dis coursed Upon. The Itcst AVny to Get Ardent Friends is to Have Ardent F.iiemiea If Vonr Kne luies Have lleen Acquired lit Dolus: Klght. nc. V. DeWitt Talmage discussed tho ert of making frienl in recent sermon ia the Brooklyn Tabernacle. His text was: A mnn tbt hath friends must show himself friendly. I'rov. xviil., t. About the tsncred and divino art of malt ing aud keeping friends 1 speak a sub ject on hich I never heard of anyone jreachiug and yet God thought it of enough importance to pat it in the middle 'f the I'.ible," those writing" of Solomon, bounded on one side by the popular i'fsahns of David, and on the other by the xvritinsjn of Isniah, the preatest of the Vropht-t.s. It seems all a matter of hap iiaznrd how many friends we have, or whether we have any friends at all, but 1here Is nothing accidental about it. There is a law which governs the accretion and dispersion of friendships. They did not "just happen so" any more than tho tides Just happen to rise or fall, or . tho nin just happens to rise or 6et. It is u scie-nce, an art, a God-given i emulation. Tell mo how friendly you isre to others, and I will tell you how friendly others are to you. I do not say you will not havo enemies indoed, tho best way to pet ardent frie:;ls is to have nrdeut enemies, if you got their enmity in loin? the riht thins- Good men and women will always have enemies, be cause their poodness is a perpetual re buke to evil; but this antagonism of foos Xv ill mako more intense tho lovo of your ndhorents. Your friends will pather closer around you because of the attacks f your nssailauts. The more your ene mies abuse you the better your coad jutors will think of you. The best friends wo ever had appeared at some juncture when we were especially bombarded. There have been times in my life when unjust assault multiplied my friends, as ue;ir ns I onild calculate, about fifty a luiuute. You are bound to some people by many cords that neither time nor eternity can break, and 1 will warrant that many of those cords were twisted by l ands malevolent. Human nature was shipwrecked about fUty-niue centuries nijo the captain ot thit craft (one Adam) and his first mate running the f inmns earpo aground on a snag iu the lliver Uiddekel; but there was at least one pood trait of human nature that wautd safely ashore from that ship wreck, and that is tho disposition to tr.ke the part of those unfairly dealt with. "When it is thoroughly demonstrated that f-omo one is being persecuted, although nt the start slanderous tonpues were busy enough, defenders finally gather (i round as thick as bees on rt trellis 'f bruised houeysucklo. If, when set upon by tho furies, you can have grace enough to keep your mouth shut, and preserve your equipoise, and let others l'.ght your battles, you will find yourself n r ter awhile with a whole cordon of all ies. Had not. the world given to Christ on His urrival nt Palestine a very cold shoulder there would not have been one-half as many nugcl chanting glory out of the hymn books of the sky bouud in black b.ds of midnight. Had it not been for the heavy and jagged uud tortuous cross, Christ would not havo been tho admired uud loved of more people than any beiug who over touched foot on either tho east ern or western hemisphere. Instead, therefore, of giving up iu despair because you havo enemies rejoice iu the fact that they rally for you the most helpful and enthusiastic ndmirers. In other words, there is no virulence, human or diabolic. that can hinder my text from coming true: "A man that hath friends must ehow himself friendly." It is my ambition to project especially upon the young a thought which may be nignly sliupo their destiny for the here r.nd the hereafter, liofore you show your- i elf friendly von must bo friendly. I do not recouimoud a dramatized geniality There is such a thing us pretending to bo en rapport with others when we are their dire (lestruetauts, and ttlk against them and wish them calamity. Judas covered up hi.-? treachery by a resounding kiss, nnd caresses imv be demoniacal. Hotter tho mythological Cerberus, tho three beaded dog of hell, harking at lis, than the wolf In sheep's clothing, its brindled hide covered up by deceitful wool, and its ileathful howl cauoneod into an innocent bleating. Pisraeli writes of Hord Man ireil, who, after committing many out rages upon tho people, seemed suddenly to become friendly, and invited them to a banquet. After most of the courses of food had been served he blew a horn. which was iu those times a signal for the servants to bring on tho dessert, but in this case it was the signal for assassins to enter anil slay the guests. His pre tended friendliness was a cruel fraud; nnd there are now people whose smile is a falsehood. ISefore you begin to show yourself friendly you must be friendly. Get your heart l ight with God nnd man, find this grace will become easy. You may by vuur owu resolution get vour nature into a semblance of this virtue, but the graeo of (Jod can sublimely lift you into it. Sailing on the river Thames two vessels ran Bgnmnd. The owuers ot one got a hundred horses and pulled on the ground ed ship, ami pulled it to pieces. Tho owners of the other grounded vessel wait ed till the tides come in and easily flouted the ship out of all trouble. So, wo may pull and haul at our grounded human lia tti re, and try to get it into better condi- t on : but t here is not hiug like the oceanic t ides of God's uplifting grace to hoist us iato this kitulliuess I am eulogizing. If w lien under the tlarh of tho Holy Ghost wo m our own foibles and defects and oeoravit ies. we will bo very lenient and Mrv easy with others. AVe will look into their characters for things commendatory ni l not damnatory. If y U would rub your own eve a little more vigorously you would find a mote iu it, the extraction of vhich would keep you so limy you would l ot have muc'i time to shoulder your bioadaxe aud tro forth to split up the I cam in your neighbor's eye. In a Chris tian spirit, keep on exploring tho charac ters of those you meet, nnd I am sure you will find something in them delightful r.nd fit for a foundation of friendliness Yon invite me to come to your country seat and spend a few days. Thank yout I arrive about noon of beautiful sum mer day. AVI: at do you do: As scon as I arrive you take me out under the shad toy of the crent elms. uii take me down to the artificial lake, the spoil trout floating in and out among the white Hilars of the pond lilies.

Come aud let us for an hour or two regale our- elve3 with the nuisances. Oh, my friends, better cover up the faults and extol the virtues, and this habit once established of universal friendliness will become as easy as it is this morning: for a syringa to flood the ir with sweetness, as easy as it will be urther on in the season for a quail to whistle up from the grass. AVhen we hear something bad about somebody whom we always supposed to be good, take out your lead pencil and say: "Let me see! Before I accept that baleful tory against that man's character, I will take off from it twenty-five p.r ccut. for the habit of exaggeration which belongs to the man who first told tho story; tlvjn will take oil twenty-five per cent, for the additions which the spirit of gossip iu every community has iut upon the original story; then I will take off twenty- five per cent, from tho fact that the man may have been put into circumstances or overpowering temptation. c l nave aken oft seventy-five per cent. But I have not beard his side of the story at all, and for that reason I take off the re maining twenty-five per cent." Excuse me, sir, I don't believe a word of it. Hut here comes in a defective maxim. o often quoted: "Where there is so much smoko there must bo Borne fire." iiok at all the ' smoko for years around Jenner, tho introducer of vaccination; aud the smoko around Columbus, the liscoverer; and the smoke around Martin Luther, and Savonarola, and Gallieo, aud 'aul, and John, -and Christ, and tell r.19 ifhere was the fire? Slander, like the world, may be made out of nothing. If the Christian, fair-minded, common- sensical spirit in regard to others pre dominated in the world we should have he millennium ia about six weeks, for would not that bslamb and lion, cow and lcopar-1 lying down together? Noth- ug but tho grace of God can ever put us uto such a habit of mind aud heart as hat. The whole tendency is in the oppo- ito direction. This is the way the world talks: I put my name ou the back of a man's note and I had t pay it, and I will never again put my name on the back of any man's note. I gave a beggar en cents, and five minutes after I saw him entering a liquor store to spend it. I will never again give a cent to a beggar. I helped that young man start iu busi ness, and lo, after awhile, he came and opened a store almost next to me, and s'.olo my customers. I will never again lelp a young man start in busiuess. I rusted in what my neighbor promised to do, aud he broke his word, and the Psalm- stwas right before he corrected himself, for "all men are liars." Now, supposing that you have, by a diviue regeneration, got right toward God and humanity, an 1 you start out to practice my text: "'A man that hath friends must show himself friendly." Fulfill this by all forms of appropriate salutatious. Hive you noticad that the head is so poised that the easiest thing n earth is to give a nod of recognition? To swing the head fron side to side, as when it is wagged in derision, is un natural and unpleasant; to throw it back invites vertigo; but to drop tho chin in greeting is accompanied with so little exertion that all day long acd every day you might practice it without the least semblance of fatigue. So, also, the structure of the hand indicates hand shaking; the knuckles not made so that the fingers can turn out, but so made that tho fingers can turn in as in clasping hands; aud the thumb divided from aud set aloof from Cue fingers, so that while the fingers take your neighbor's hand on one side, the thumb takes !t on the other, nnd, pressed togeiher, all the faculties of the baud give emphasis to the salutation. Fivo sermons in every healthy band urge us to handshaking. besides this, every day when you start out, load yourself up with kin I thoughts, kind words, kind expressions and kind greetings. hen a man or woman does well, tell him so, tell her so. If you meet some oue who is improved in health, aud it is demonstrated in mirth and color. say: "How well you look!" Put if on tho other hand, under tho wear and tear of life, he appears pale and exhausted, do not introduce sanitary subjects, or say any thing at all about physical condi tions. In the case of improved health, you have by your words given another impulse towards the robust aud th3 jo- j ennd; while in the case of the failing health you have arrested tho decline by your silence, by which he conclules: "If I were really so bad off, ho would have said something about it." AVe are all, especially those of a nerv ous temperament, susceptible to kind words aud discouraging words. Form a conspiracy against us, and let ten meu meet us at certain points on our way to business, nnd let each one say: "How sick you look," though we should start out well, after meeting the first aud hear ing his depressing salute, we would bo- piu to examine our symptoms. After meeting the second gloomy accosting, we would conclude we did not feel quite at well as usual. After meeting the third, our sensations would be dreadful; and after meeting the fourth, unless we ex pected a conspiracy, wo would go home nnd po to lied, and the other six pes simists would be a useless surplus of dis couragement. My dear sir, my dear madam, what do you mean by going about Ibis world with dishearteniuents? Is not the supply o" gloom, and troub le, ami misfortune enough to m'iet the de mand, without your running a factory o pia s and spikes? Why should you plant black and Iduo in tho world when God so seldom plnuts them? Plenty ot scarlet, colors, plenty of yellow, plenty of green, plenty of ink, but very seldom a plant black or blue. I never saw a black flower, and there's only here and there a blue bell or a vio let ; but the blue is for the most part re served for the sky, uud we have to look up to see that, and when wo look up no color can do us harm. Why not plant along the paths of others the brightnesses 'nstead of the p'.ooms? Do not prophesy misfortune. If you muft bo a prophet at all bo au H.kiel, and not a Jeremiah. In ancient times prophets who foretold evil were doing riirht. for they were divinely directed; but the prophets of evil in our time are generally false prophets. Some of our weather-wise people are prophesy ing that we shall have a summer of uupnrallelcd scorch. It will not bo that at i.H. I think wo are going to have a summer f great harvest aud universal health; nt Piiy rate I know r.s much about it bh they do. Last fall all the weather prophets agreed iu sayiug we should h.-ve a winter of e xtraoi diuary severity, blizzards on tho heels of bUzzard. It was the mildest winter I ever remembered to have passed. Indeed, th5 autumn and the spring almost shoved winter out of tho procession. Real troubles have no heralds running ahead of th "ir somber chariots, and no one has any authority in our tune to an nounce their coming. Load yourself up with hopeful words and deeds. The hymn ouco sung in our churches is unfit to be sung, for ii s ys: V.'e ahonl 1 sisp-i t some fliinper r.eir Where we pusse-s deli 'hi. Ia other words, manage t keep miser able all the tim?.

At Baltimore, a few days aga, I talk 1 Into a phonograph. The cylinder containing the words was seat on to Washington, and the next day that cylinder, from an other phonographic iustrument, when turned, gave back to me the very word I 11 had uttered the day before, and wits the same intonations.Scold into a phono graph, and it will scold back. Pour mild words into a phonograph, and it will re turn the gentleness. Society and the world and the Church are phonographs. Give them acerbity and rough treatment you will get back. Give them practical friendliness, and they will give back pract'eal friendliness. A father asked his little daughter; "Mary, why is ii '.hat ev.ry body loves you?" She replied. "I dou't know, un less it is because I lovo every body." "A man that bath friends must show himself friendly." We want something like that spirit of sacrifice for others which was seen in the English channel, iwhore, in the storm a boat containing three men was upset, and all three were in the wa ter struggling for their lives. A boat came to their relief and a rope was thrown to one of them, and he refused to take it, say ing: "First fling it to Tom; ho is just ready to go down. I can last some time longer." A man like that, be bo sailor or landsman, be he iu upper ranks of society or lower ranks, will always have plenty of friends. What is true iaanward is true Oodward. We must be the friends of God if we want Him to be our friend. We can not treat Christ bad ly all our lives and expect Him to treat ns lovingly. I was reading of a sea fight, in which Lord Nelson captured a French officer, and when the French officer of fered Lord Nelson his hand Nelson r plied: "First give ma your sword, and then give me your hand." Surrender of our resistance to God must precede God's proffer of pardon to us. Repentance be fore forgiveness. You must give up your rebel ions sword before you can get a grasp of the D ivine hand. Oh, what a glorious state of things to have the friendship of God! Wrhy, we could afford to have all the world against aud all other worlds against us if we had God for u. He could in a minute blot out this universe. I have no i lea that God tried hard when He ma le all things. The most brilliant thing known to ns is light, and for the creation of that He only used a word of command. As out ot a flint a frontiersman strikes a spaik, so out of one word God struck the noonday sun. For the making of the present universe I do not read that God liftod so much as a finger. The Bible frequently speaks of God's hand, and God's arm, and God's shoulder, aud God's foot; then suppose He should put hand and arm and shoulder and foot to utmost tension, what could He not make? That God, of such demonstrated and tin demonstrated strength, you may have for your everlasting friend. But a stately and reticent friend, hard to get at, but as approachable as a country mansion on a summer day when oil the doors and win dows are wide open. Cinrist said: "I am the door." And He is a wide door, a high door, a palace door, an always open door. My four-year-old child got hurt and did not cry until hours after, when her mother came home, and then she burst into weeping, aud sonu of the domestics, not understanding human nature, said to her: "Why did you not cry before?" She nnsvered: "There was no one to cry to." Now I have to tell yon while human sym pathy may be absent. Divine sympathy is always accessible. Give God your love and get His love; your service and secure His help; your rep3ntance and have His pardon. God a friend? Why, that means all your wounds medicated, all your sor rows soothed, and if some sudlu catas trophe should hurl you out ot earth it would only hurl you iuto Heaven. If God is your friend, you can not so out of the world too quickly or suddenly, so far as your own happiness is concerned." There were two Christians last Tuesday who entered Heaven; the one was stand ing at a window in perfect health watch ing a shower, and the lightning instantly slew him; but the lightning did not flash down the sky as swiftly as his spirit flashed upward. The Christian man who died on the same day next door had been for a year or two failing in health, and for the last three months had suffered from a disease that made the nights sleepless and the days au anguish. Do you not really think that the case of the one who went instantly was moro desirable than the one who eu tered tho shining gate through a long lane of insomnia and congestion? In the oue case it was like your standing wearily at a door, knockiug and waiting, and wondering if it will ever open, and knock ing and waiting again, while in the other case it was a swiuging open of the door at the first touch of the knuckle. Give your friendship to God, and have God's friendship for you, and even the worst accident will be a victory. How refreshing is human friendship; and true friends, what priceless treas ures 1 WThen sickness comes, and trouble comes, and death comes, we send for out friends first of all, and their appearance in or.r doorway in any crisis is re-enforcement, aud when they have entered we say: "Now it is all right." Oh, whai would we do without friends, personal friends, business friends, family friends? But wo want something mightier than human friendship in the great exigencies. When Jonathan Edwards, in his fiaal hour, had given the last good-bye t.i all bis earthly friends, be turned on hi pillow and closed his eyes confident ly saying: "Now where is Jesus of Naz -areth, my truo and never-failing friend?" Yes, I admire human friend ship as seen iu the case of David and Jonathan, of Paul and Onesiphoru?, of Herder and Goethe, ot Goldsmith and Reynolds, of Beaumont and Fletcher, of Cowley aud Harvey, ot Erasmus and Thomas More, of Lessing and Mendels sohn, of Lady Churchill and Princess Anne, of Orestes aud Pylades, each re onesting that himself might take the point of the dagger so the other might b. spared, of Epaminondas and Pelopidas, who locked their shield in battle deter mined to die together: but the grandest, the mightiest, thj tenderest friendship in all the universe is tho friendship be tween Jesus Christ and a believing soul. Yet after all I have said I feel I have only done what James Marshall, th miner, did in 118 iu California, before its gold mines were known. He reached in aud put upon tlia table of his em ployer. Captain Cutter, a thimbleful oi gold dust. ''Where did you get that?" said his employer. The reply was: "I gn it this morning from a mill race from which the water had been drawn off." Bui that gold dust which could have been taken up between the finger and the thumb was the prophesy and specimen that revealed California's wealth to all nations. And to-day I have only pui before you a specimen of the value of Diviue friendship, only a thimbleful of mines inexhaustible and infinite, though all time and ail eternity go on with th. exploration. Men sometimes tkiak their lot to be a veiy hard one iu this world, and even com plain against the providence of God as a sort of cruelty to them. If these same per sons would thoughtfully study the mercies with, which God has c; owned their days, they would soon discover that tli:y have more mercies for which to thank Him than evils of which to complain. If they would carefully examine what they call evils, they would also see a great nuajr thing l;i tins list that are evils only in anpearancs, and are roaily "mercies in disguise." iluch ot Uirt petulanco of human nature wltii Providence would be cured by such Uealti. fui uiediuiluu. ii. Y IaJeuoajcbt. The Natural Result of the Manners of life of a People. The national sonj of a country is the natural result of the manners of the people; and just as these vary In different nations, so does the music which has crown with these nations vary in its peculiarities and effects. Not a country in the world is without a national music of its own. Rude and barbarous it may be, but it will have its own distinct characteristics, and it will appeal as no other music can to the nation or tribe to which it owes its existence. The power of national song- has indeed been long recognized and admitted. Linking itself with objects and events that are cherished and memorable,, it has become the "depository of all that is interesting to human feeiiug or dear to national pride; and by the innumerable recol lections which it involves, united with its natural power to excite emotion, it acquires a magic influence over the heart which no other art can lay claim to." It has frequently been minimized and sneered at as alow form of musical creation, unworthy of serious atten tion, and incapable of elevating the mind. But surely tho place of music is to please as well as to ennoble; and it is at least not surprising that the people should find a special charm in that which is of their own production and belongs to themselves. Nature has always proved stronger than art, and here we have further evidence of her superiority. In musical composi tion the admiration and applause of the cultured few may be gained for that which is scientific and abstruse; but it is only by simple strains that the ordi nary hearer is captivated and the finer feelings of his heart are stirred. The critical musician may, if he will, decry the national music of a country as being devoid of expression and beauty, but the people to whom it belongs will assuredly feel that it is lacking in neither of these qualities. For our part, we think the music of every na tion every civilized nation at least has charms which any one can appre ciate if its truo spirit is entered into without prejudice; and there is cer tainly something wrong with the heart of that man who, loving his country, does not also love his country's music. If there is any truth at all in Shakespeare's lines, surely he, of all men, "is "fit for treasons, strata gems, and spoils; let no such man be trusted." The term "national mu sic" has sometimes been misunder stood. It is properly applied to "that aboriginal or self-sown music which is referable to no individual author, or school of authors, but seems to bo the fruit of the very soil itself." It desig nates any music which, being written in the peculiar taste of the nation to which it appertains, appeals more powerfully than other music to the feelings of that nation. It may be considered as one of the leading pe culiarities of national music that the names of those who have combined to make it are seldom known. This is the case with every "col lection of national song with which we are acquainted. The only satisfactory theory is that which regards the peo ple themselves as tho originators of the national tunes. A national air is seldom "composed" at all, in the ordi nary sense of the term; it is more fre quently extemporized in a moment of extraordinary emotion, by some one having gifts superior to his fellows. II impressive it is soon taken up by oth ers, further diffused, and thus tra ditionally preserved. Like an inven tion making toward perfection, it may pass through many hands, he who had the first idea of it seldom completing it, but transmitting it on to others who enlarged upon it until it reached its final state. Scottish Review. THE OPIUM HABIT. A Vice That Changes Iecent Persons Into Liars nnd Thieves. "It may surprise some people," said a leading druggist to me to-day, "to know that it is tho practice of re spectable druggists to sell laudanum and morphine to people whom they know to bo confirmed opium-eaters. But there aro two good reasons for doing so. One is that it -vould be im possible to keep them frtm obtaining these drugs, in some way or other. Another is that if we were able to shut off their supply, and should do so, it would inevitably kill them. So that every - druggist has a few customers who, he ktiows, are killing themselves with o-pium. and with the very opium he is selling them, and yet he continues to sell it to them. He never knows that they aro opium-eaters from their own admissions, however. These poor creatures are very -sensitive about their vice, and never confess it. They always make some shallow and absurd excuse for buying so much opium, which never deceives any one. But even after they find out that we know that they are opium-eaters, they never concede it, . in any way. One way that they betray themselves, is by lying and stealing. For it is a, singular thing that, just as insanity is always accompanied by lewdness, so the opium habit is invariably accom panied by lying and stealing. Vv'e have to wait on these poor people, nncl we treat them kindly, but wo keep s. very close watch on them, and never let them get out of sight, for if we do we are sure to miss some small articki when they are gone. I can't say tlral; opium-eaters are becoming any more numerous in Chicago, but the reason may be that other similar vices are to some extent taking tho place of the opium habit." Chicago Journal.

The best remedies are buhach and kerosene, the former to be used on the fowls and the latter on the perches, in the nests and in the whitewash. These two substances give us absolute control of the insects that infest poul try houses, and consequently control of tho so-called diseases resulting from insects. Too much corn is used by poultry men, and not enough wheat, oats, barley, middlings, bran and green food. Clover rowen for winter use Is valuable, owing to the large percent age of albumen it contains. Variety of food is essential to the well-being and productiveness of fowls. The composition of eggs requires variety of material, and these constituents are found in plain and cheap food of one kind or another.

The several climates of Florida, Colorado and California have each been much pre scribed for sufferers from lung: disease, yet thousands of the natives in those States die of this fatal malady. A far more reliabla remedy is to be had in every drug store in the land, and one that can be used at home; a remedy which is sold, by druggists, under the manufacturers' positive yiutrantee that, if taken in time and given a fair trial, it will effect a cure, or money paid for it will be promptly returned. We refer to that world-famed remedy for' consumption (or lug-scrofula) known as Dr. Pierce's Gold en Medical Discovery. It is the only rem edy for this terrible disease possessed of such superior curative properties as to warrant its manufacturers in selling it under a guarantee.
