THE WEEKLY SENTINEL: THURSDAY DECEMBER 2, 1886.
M u A "FATAL MISTAKE. The Cleveland (Ohio) Press, of February 23d, 1883, pub lished an account of a fatal surgical operation which caused a great commotion among med ical men throughout the whole country, Dr. Thayer, the most eminent surgeon in Cleveland, pronouncing it scandalous. It appears that a Mrs. King had been suffering for many years from some disease of the stom ach, which had resisted the treatment of all the physicians in attendance. The disease commenced with a slight de rangement of the digestion, with a poor appetite, followed "by a peculiar indescribable dis tress in the stomach, a feeling that has been described as a faint "all gone" sensation, a sticky slime collecting about the teeth, causing a disagree able taste. This sensation was not removed by food, but, on the contrary, it was increased. After a while the hands and feet became cold and sticky a cold ' perspiration. There was a constant tired and lan guid feeling. Then followed a dreadful nervousness, with gloomy forebodings. Finally the patient was unable to re tain any food whatever, and there was constant pain in the abdomen. All prescribed rem edies failing to eive relief, a consultation was held, when it was decided that the patient had a cancer in the stomach, and in order to save the patient's life an operation was justifi able. Accordingly, on the 2 2d of February, 1883, the opera tion was perforaied by Dr. "Vance in the presence of Dr. Tuckerman, Dr. Penier, Dr. Arms, Dr. Gordon, Dr. Capner, and Dr. Halliwell of the Police Board. The operation consist ed in laving open the cavity of the abdomen and exposing the stomach and bowels. When this had been done an examin ation of the organs was made, but to the horror and dismay of the doctors there was no cancer to be found. The pa tient did not have a cancer. ."When too late the medical men discovered that they had made a terrible mistake ; but they sewed the parts together and dressed the wound that they had made, but the poor woman sank from exhaustion and died in a few hours. How sad it must be for the husband of this poor woman to know that his wife died from the effects of a surgical operation that ought never to have been performed. If this woman had taken the proper remedy for Dyspepsia and Nervous Prostration (for this was what the disease really was), she would have been liv ing to-day. Siiakeu Extract of iRoots, or Seiokl's Curative - Strxjp, a remedy made ex .pressly for Dyspepsia or Indi gestion, hasrestuivd many such cases to perfect health after all other kinds of treatment have failed. The evidence of its efficacy in curing this class of cases is too voluminous to be published here j but those who read the published evidence in favor of this dyspeptic remedy do not question its convincing nature, and the article has an extensive sale.

D., preached in the Brooklyn Tabernacle this morning on the subject: "In Matters of Church Attendance Should the Wife Go with the Husband or the Husband Go with the Wife?' The tabernacle still re tains the decoration of Thanksgiving day, being specimens of American products from, the north, south, east and west A vast con gregation sang the opening hymn, beginning: Como, let us join our friends above. Who have obtained the prize. And on the eagle wings of love T joys celestial rise. For the greater part, the hymns nsed in Dr. Talmae's church are old and familiar, and rrh'n th whole audience rises to sing, led by Professor Ali, the cornetist, and Pro fessor Henry Eyre llrowne, the organist, the effect is overpowering. Dr. Talmajce's text was from Genesis siii, 8, 9. Let there be no strif e, I pray thee, be tween me and thee, and between my herdmen and thy herdmen. Is not the whole land be fore thee!" Dr. Talmage said: Uncle and nephew, Abram and Lot, both pious, lxtn millionaires, and nith such large flocks of bleating sheep and lowing cattle that their herdmen got iuto a fight, perhaps about tho best pasture, or about the best water- privilege, or because the cow of one got hooked by the horns of the other. Not their poverty of opportunity, but their wealth, was the cause of controversy between these two men. To Abram, the glorious old Bedouin sheik, such controversy seemed ab surd. It was like two ships quurreling for sea room in the middle of the Atlantic ocean. There was a vast reach of country, corn fields, vineyards," harvests and plenty of room in illimitable acreage. ".Now, says Abram: "Let us agree to differ. Here are tho mountain districts, swept by the tonic and sea breeze, and with wide reaching pros pect, or there is the plain of the Jordan, with tropical luxuriance. You may have either." Lot, who was not as rich as Abram, and might have been ejected to take the second choice, made the first selection, and with a modesty that must have made Abram smile, said to him: "You may have the rocks and the fine prospect; I will take the valley of the Jordan, with all its luxuriance of corn fields, and the river to water the flocks, and tho genial climate, and the wealth immeasur able." So the controversy was forever settled, and great souled Abram carried out the suggestion of the text: "Let there be no strife, I pray three, between me and thee, and between my herdmen and thy herdmen. Is not the whole land before thee?" Well, in this, the last quarter of the Nine teenth century, and in this beautiful land, which was called America, after Americus Vespucius, but ought to have been been called Columbia, af (gr its discoverer, Colum bus, we have a wealth of religious privilege and opportunity that is positively bewilder ing. Churches of all styles of creeds, and of all styles of governments, and all styles of worship, and all styles of architecture. What opulence of ecclesiastical opportunity I Now, while in desolate regions there may be only one church, and it must be that or nothing, in the opulent districts of this country, there is such a profusion that there ought to be no difficulty in making a selection. No fight about vestments, or between liturgical or non-liturgical adherents, or as to baptismal modes, or a handful of water as compared with a riverf ul. If Abram prefers to dwell in the heights, where he can only get a sprinkling from the clouds, let him consent that Lot have all the Jordan in which to im merse himself. "Let there be no strife, I pray thee, between thee and me, and between thy herdmen and my herdmen. Is no the whole land before thee?" Especially is it unfortunate when families allow, at the breakfast, or dining, or tea ta ble, angry discussion as to which is the best church or denomination, one at one end of the table saying he could not endure the rigid doctrines of Presbyterianism, one at the other end responding that she. never could stand the forms of Episcopacy, and one at one side of the table saying he did not understand how anybody could bear the noise in the Methodist church, and another declaring all the Baptists bigots. There are hundreds of families hopelessly split on eccle siasticism, and in the mnfUle of every discus sion on such subjects there is a kindling of indignation, and it needs some old father Abram to come and put his foot on the load ed fuse before the explosion takes place, and say: "Let there be no strife, I pray thee, be tween me and thee, and between my herd- men and thy herdmen. Is not the whole land before thee!" I undertake a subject never before under taken in any pulpit, for it is an exceedingly delicate subject, and if not rightly handled might give serious offense; but I approach it without the sligntesc trepidation, lor 1 am sure I have the Divine direction in the matters I propose to present. It is a tremen dous question, asked all over Christendom, often asked with tears and sobs and heart breaks, and involving the peace of families, the eternal happiness of many souls: In matters of church attendance, should the wife go with the husband, or the husband go with the wife! First, remember that all the evangelical churches have enough truth in them to save the soul and prepare us for happiness on earth and in heaven. I will go with you into any well selected theological library, and I will show you sermons from ministers in all de nominations that set forth man as a sinner and Christ as a deliverer from sin and sorrow. That is the whole gospel. Get that into your soul and you are fitted for the here and the hereafter. Tho world has twenty-six letters in its alphabet, and there are only two letters in the gospel alphabet S and C ; S standing for our sin, C standing for Christ, our rescue, blessed be His glorious name forever 1 In any church where you can thoroughly learn these two letters, and all they stand for, yon ought to be edified and happy. There are differ ences, wo admit, and some denominations we like better than others. But suppose three or four of us make solemn agree ment to meet each other a week from now in Chicago on important business, and one goes by the New York Central rail road, another by the Erie railroad, another by the Pennsylvania railroad, another by the Baltimore and Ohio railroad. - One goes this way, l ecaus--? the mountains are grander; another ?kes this 'j "aua . '.iui c". i are rr-ore luxurious; another ihat, because the spoed is greater; another takes the other, because he has long been accustomed to that route, ind all the employes are familiar. So far as our engagement to meet is concerned, it makes no difference if we only get there. Now, any one of the innumerable evangel ical denominations, If yon practice Its teach ing although eoib'j of their trains run on a broad euue, and some on a narrow gauge will bring you out at the city of the Hew Jerusalem. , - r - ' It being evident that you will be safe in any of the evangelical denominations, I pro ceed to remark, first: If one of the married couple be a Christian and the other not, the one a Christian is bound to go anywhere to a church where the unconverted companion is willing to go, if he or she will go to no other. You, of the connubial partnership, are a Christian. Yon are safe for the skies. Then tt is your first duty to secure the eternal safety of your lifetime associate. Is not the everlasting welfare of your wife impenitent, or your husband impenitent, of more im portance than your church relationship! Is not the residence of your companion for the next quadrillion of years a mightier considera tion to yon than the gratification of your ecclesiastical taste for forty or fifty years! A man or a woman that would stop half a minute to weigh preferences as to whether he or she had better go with the unconverted companion to this or that church or denomination has no religion at all, and never has had, and I fear never will have. You are loaded up with what you suppose to be religion, but you are like Capt. Frobisher, who brought back, from his voy age of discovery a shipload of what he sup posed valuable minerals, yet instead of being silver and gold, were nothing but common stones of the field, to be hurled out finally as useless. Mighty God I In all Thy realm is there one man or woman professing religion, yet so stolid, so unfitted, so far gone unto death that there would be any hesitancy in surrendering all preferences before such an opportunity of salvation and heavenly re union! If you, a Christian wife, are an attend ant upon this Brooklyn Tabemaclo, and your unconverted husband does not come here, be cause he does not like its preacher, or its music, or its architecture, or its uncomfort able crowding, and goes not to any house of worship, but would go if you would accom pany him somewhere else, change your ' church relations. Take your hymn book home with you to-day. Say good-by to your friends in the neighboring pews, and go with him to any one of a hundred churches, till his soul is saved and he joins you in the march to heaven. More important than that ring on the third finger of your left hand, it is, that your Heavenly Father command the angel of mercy concerning your husband at, his conversion, as in the parable of old: "Put a ring on his hand." No letter of more importance ever came to the great city of Corinth, situated on what was called the "Bridge of the Sea," and glistening with sculpture, and gated with a style of brass the magnificence of which the following ages have not been able successfully to imitate, and overshadowed by the Acro Corinthus, a fortress of rock 2,000 feet high I say no letter ever came to that great city of more importance than that letter in which Paul puts the two startling questions: "What knowest thou, oh wife, whether thou shalt save thy husband? Or how knowest thou, oh man, whether thou shalt save thy wife!" The dearest sacrifice on the part of tho one is cheap if it rescue the other. Better go to the smallest, weakest, most insignificant church on earth, and be co-partners in eternal bliss, than pass your earthly membership in most gorgeously attractive church while your companion stays outside of evangelical privi lege. Better have the drowning saved by a scow or sloop than let him or her go down while you sail by in the gilded cabins of a Britannic or a Great Eastern. Second remark: If both of the married couple be Christians, but one is so naturally constructed that it is impossible to enjoy the services of a particular denomination, and the other is not so sectarian or punctilious, let the one less particular go with the other who is very particular. As for myself, I feel as much at home in one denomination of evangelical Christians as another, and I think I must have been bora very near the line. I likn the solemn roll of the Episcopal liturgy, and I like the spontaneity of the Methodists, and I like the importance given to the ordinance of Baptism by the Baptists, and I like the freedom of the Congrega tionallsts, and I like the government and the sublime doctrine of the Presbyterians, and I like many of the others just as good as any I have mentioned, and I could happily live and die, and preach, and be buried from any of them. But others are born with so stout and unbending and inexorable a liking for some denomination that it is a positive necessity they have the advantage of that one. What they were in tended to be in ecclesiasticism was written in the sides of their cradle, if the fathorand mother had eyes keen enough to see it They would not stop crying until they had put into their hands as playthings a Westminster Catechism or the Thirty-nine Articles. The whole cur rent of their temperament and thought and character runs into one sect of religionists as naturally as the James river into the Chesapeake. It would be a torture to such persons to be anything outside of that one church. Now, let the wife or hus band who is not so constructed sacrifice the milder preference for the one more inflexible and rigorous. Let the grapevine follow the rugosities and sinuosities of the oak or hickory. Abram, the richer in flocks of Christian grace, should say to Lot, who is built on a smaller scale: "Let there be no strife, I pray thee, between me and thee, and between my herdmen and thy herdmen. Is not the whole land before thee?" As you can be edified and happy anywhere, go with your companion to the church to which he or she must go or be miserable. Remark the third: If both the married couple are very strong in their sectarianisms, let them attend the different churches pre ferred. ' It is not necessary that you attend the same church. Religion is between your conscience and your God. Like Abram and Lot, agree to differ. When on Sabbath morn ing you come out of the door of your home together, and one goes one way and the other the other, heartily wish each other a good sermon and a time of profitable devotion, and when you meet again at the noonday repast let it bo evident each to each, and to your children, and to the hired help, that you have both been on the Mount ol i ransngu ration, although you went up by different paths, and that you have both been fed by the bread of life, though kneaded by different hands, in different trays, and baked in different ovens. "But how about the children?" I am often asked -by hundreds of parents. Lot them also make their choice. They will grow up with reverence for both the denominations represented by father and mother, if you, by holy lives, commend those denominations. If the father lives .the better Ike, they will have the more favorable opinion of his de nomination. If the mother lives the better life, they will have the more favorable opinion of her denomination. And some day both the parents will, for at least one service, co to the same church. The neigb bors will ray: "I wonder whit Is going c. to-doT. fc- I saw- our rj-IghW and his wife. , who ai .. ;:.ys go to different churches, going arm in arm to the same sanctuary" Well, I will tell you what has brought them together, arm in arm, to the same altar. Something very important has happened. Their son is to-day uniting with the church. He is standing in the aisle taking the vowi of a Christian. He had been somewhat way ward, and gave father and mother a good deal of t-axiety, but their prayers have been answered In his conversion, and as he stands in the aisle and the minister of religion says; "Do you consecrate yourself to the God who made and redeemed you, and do you promise to serve him all your days?' and with manly voice he answers "I do." There is an April shower in the pew where father and mother sit, and a rainbow of joy which arches both their souls, that makes all differences of creed infinitesimal. And the daughter who had been very worldly, and gay, and thoughtless, puts her life on the altar of consecration, and as the sunlight of that Sabbath streams through the church window and falls upon her brow and cheek, she looks like their other daughter, whose face was lumined with the brightness of another world, on the day when the Lord took her into His heavenly keeping years ago. I should not wonder if, after all, these parents pass the evening of their life in the same church, all differences of church pref erence overcome by the joy of being in the house of God where their children were pre pared for usefulness and heaven. But I can give you a recipe for ruining your children. Angrily contend in the household that your church is right and the church of your companion is wrong. Bring sneer and caricature to emphasize your opin ions, and your children will make up their minds that religion is a sham, and they will have none of it In the northeast storm of domestic controversy, the rose of Sharon and the lily of the valley will not grow. Fight about apostolic succession, fight about election and free agency, fight about baptism, fight about the bishopric, fight about gown and surplice, and the religious prospects of your children will be left dead on the field. You will be as unfortunate as Charles, duke of Burgundy, who in battle lost a diamond the value of a nation, for in your fight you will lose the jewel of salvation for your entire household. This is nothing against the ad vocacy of your own religious theories. Use all forcible argument, bring all telling illus tration, array all demonstrative facts, but let there be no acerbity, no stinging retort, no mean insinuation, no superciliousness, as though all others were wrong and you in fallibly right Take a hint from astronomy. The Ptole maic system made the earth the center of the solar system, and everything was thought to turn round the earth. But the Copernican system came, and made the sun the center, around which the planets revolved. The bigot makes his little belief the center of iverything, but the large, souled Christian lakes the Son of Righteousness the center, and all denominations, without any clashing, and each at its own light and in its own sphere, revolving around it. Over the tomb of Dean Stanley in Westminster abbey is the passage of Scripture: "Thy command ments are exceeding broad." Let no man crowd ns on to a path like the bridge Al Sirat, which the Mohammedan thinks leads from this world over the abyss of hell into paradise, the breadth of the bridge less than the web of a starved spider or the edge of a sword or razor, oft the edges of which many fall. No; while the way is not wide enough to take with us any of our sins, it is wide enough for all Christian believers to pass without peril into everlasting safety. But do not any of you depend upon what you call a sound creed for salvation. A man may own all the statutes of the state of New York, and yet not be a lawyer, and a man may own all the best medical treatises, and not be a physician; and a man may own all the best works on painting and architecture, and not be either painter or architect; and a man may own all the sound creeds in the world, and yet not be a Christian. Not what you have in your head and on your tongue, but in your heart and in your life, will decide everything. In olden times in England, before the mod ern street lamps were invented, every house holder was expected to have a lantern sus pended in front of his house, and the cry of the watchmen in London as they went along at eventide was: '-Hang out your lights!" Instead of disputing in your home about the different kinds of li intern, as a watchman on the walls of Zion I cry: "Let your light so shineJaefore men that they, seeing your good works, may glorify your father which is in heaven." Hangout your Ugh ts! You may have a thousand ideas about religion, and yet not the great idea of pardoning mercy. It is not the number of your ideas, but the great ness of them. A mouse hath ten offspring in her nest, while the lioness hath one in her lair. All ideas about forms and ceremonies and church government put together are not worth the one idea of getting to heaven your self and taking your family with you. But do not reject Christianity, as many do. because there are so many sects. Standing in Westminster hotel, London, I looked out of the window and saw three clocks, as near as I can remember, one on the Parliament house, another on St. Margaret's chapel, another on Westminster abbey, and they were all different One said 13 o'clock at noon, another said 11:53, another said 12:00.
