In a recent sermon at Brooklyn Rev.
T. DeVfltt Talmage gave a glowing de
scription ot.jtua (nelodleaoX ticoestlal
land. Hla text was from Revelations t.
9: "And thoy sanjr ft new son if.'' Fol
lowing is the sormon:
Nearly all the cities of Europe and
America have conaorvatoafbs of muslo
and associations wboflv object' it. Is, by
voice and instrument, to advance the
art of sweet sounds. On Thursday nights
Exeter Hall of LondoS used &o resound
with the mslo of ftnit-clmi performers.
who crave tholr Sorvicos irratuttously to
the mantes, who came in with free'
tickets and huzzaed atthe entertain'
ment At Berlin at eleven o'clock daily,
. the military band, with sixty or one
hundred instrument discourses at the
Royal Opera House for the peopla On
Easter Sunday, in Dresden, the boom
of cannon and the ringing of bells
bring multitudes to the churches to
. listen to the organ peals, and the
' exciting sounds ot trumpet and drum.
When tho groat fair day of Leipsio
comes the bands of music, from far and
near, gathor in the street and bewilder
the ear with incessant playing of flute,
and horn, violin and bassoon. At Dus
seldorf, onoe a year, the lovers of muslo
assemble and for three or four days
1 wait upon the great singing festival.
and shout at tho close of the choruses
and greet tho successful competitors as
the prizes are distributed cups and
vases of silver and gold. All our Amer
' loan cities at times resound with orches
tra and oratorio. Those who can -sing
well or play skillfully upon instruments
are greeted with voclfoaptlon and gar
landed by excited admirers.
"Tiore are many whoso most ecstatio
delight Is to be found In melodies, and
all the splendor ot celestial gates, and
all the lusciousnnHs of twelve manner
of fruits, and all the rush of floods from
nnder the throne of Ood would not make
a beaven for them If thero were no great
and transporting harmonies.
Passing along our streets in the hour
of worship you hoar the voice of sacred
melody, although you do not enter the
building. Aid passing fclong the street
of Heaven we hear, from the Temple of
UoH and tBrf Lamb, tho breaking forth
of magnificent Jubilate. We may not
-yet enter in among the favored throng,
but God will not duny us the - pleasure
"of standing "awhile on the outside to
hear. John listened to it a great while
ago and "they sang a new song."
Let none aspire to that blessed place
who have no love for this exorcise, for
although it Is many ages since the
thrones were set, and the; harps were
strung, there has been no cessation in
the song, excepting once for about
, thirty minutes; and, fudging from the
' glorious things now transpiring in Ood't
world, and the ever accumulating tri-J
umphsof the Messiah, that was the last 4
' half hour tbat Heaven will ever be si-
. llt. ;
Mark the fact that this was a new
song."' Sometimes I ' have in ohuroh
been floated away upVm some great
chloral, in which, all our people seemedj
to mingle their voices, and I have, in
the glow of my emotions, said: Surely
this is music good enough for. Heaven.
Indeed, I do not bellevo that' "Luther's
Hymn," or "Coronation," or "Old Hun
dred.," or "Mount Hisgah," would sound
lLVlf spoken by saintly Hps, or thrummed
from seraphic .harps. There' are many
of our fathers and, mothers in glory
who would be slow to' shut Heaven's
' gate against these old time harmonies.
' lint this, wo are told, is a new song.
- 8orae of the greatest anthems and
tOborals are compositions from other
tunos the swoetest parts of them
' gathered up into the harmony; and I
have sometimes thought that this "new
: song". may be partly made up of sweet
strains of earthly muslo mingled in
"eternal choral. Hut it will, after all,
be a new song. This I do know, that
areetnese and power it will be sorae
g tbt earinevef heard. - All the
I of tte-.oldt-st harper of Heaven
will be flung into it All the love of
God's heart will -rlntf -from it "In its
cadences the floods will clap their hands
and it will drop' with the sunlight ot
. everlasting dsy and breathe with odors
ruiu mo uiossoms ot tne tree of life.
"A new song" just mado for Heaven.
Many earthly songs are written by
composers just for the purposo ot mak
ing a tune; and tho land is floodod with
note books in which really valuable
tunes are tho exception. Hut once in
a while a man is wrought up by some
groat spectacle, or moved by some ter
rible agony, or transported by some ox
quislte gladness, and be sits down to
write a tune or a hymn, in wmcn every
note or every word Is a spark dropped
from the forge ot his own burning
emotions. So Mendelssohn wrote, and
so Beethoven, and so Charles Wesley.
Cowper, depressed with misfortunes un
til almost insane, resolved on sulcldo,
and asked the cab driver to take him to
a certain place where ho expected to
destroy his own Ufa The cab drlvor
lost his way, and Cowper began to think
ot his own sin, and went back to his
home and sat down and wrote:
"Uod inovea In a mysterious way,
HI wonder to perform;
He plant bl footmepa In the aea,
And ride upon thu a tor in.
"Ye fearful aalnta. freahoourage take,
The clouds yon ao muob dread
Are bio: with lnoroy and ahull break
In lileealnn on your bead."
Mozart composed hlsown requiem and
said to his daughter Emily, "play that,"
and while Emily was playing the
requiem Mozart's soul went upon the
wave of his own music into glory. Em
ily looked around and her father was
dead. .
This new song ot Heaven was not
composed because Heaven had nothing
else to do, but Christ, in memory of
cross and crown, ot manger and throne,
of earth and" Heaven, and wrought upon
by the raptures of the great eternity,
ooured this from His heart, made it for
the armies of Heaven to shout in cele
bration of viotory, for worshipers to
ohant in their temple services, for the
innumerable home oircles of Heaven to
sing in the house of many mansions. If
a new tune be started in church there is
only here and thero a person that oan
sing it It is some time before a con
gregation learns a new tune.
But not so with the now song oi
Heaven. The children who went up
to-day from the waters of the Ganges
are now singing it That Christian man
or woman who a few minutes ago de
parted from this very street has Joined
it All know. It those by the gates,
those on the river bank, those In the
temple. Not feeling their way through
It, or halting, or going back, as if they
neverbefore bad sung It, but with a full
round voice they throw their soul into
this new song. If Rome Dabbatn a ay
few notes of that anthem should travel
down the air, we eould not sing it. No
organ could roll its thunder. No harp
could catch its trill. No lip could an
noirnoe its sweetness. Transfixed, lost,
enchanted, dumb, we could not hear it
the fain tost note ot the new song.
Yet, while ' I speak. Heaven's cathodral
quakes under it, and seas of glory bear
it from beach to beach, and thousand
times ten thousand and thousands of
thousands sing it "the new song."
Further: It is a commemorative song.
We are distinctly told that it makes
reference to past deliverances. O, how
much have they to sing about They sing
of the darkness through which on eartn
they passed, and it is a night song.
That one was killed at York town, and
with him it is a battle song. That one
was imprisoned for Christ's sake, and
with htm It is a prison song. That was
a Christian sailor boy that had bis back
broken on the ship's halyards, and with
him it is a .sailor's song. That one
burned at Smith Meld, and with him it is
a fire song. O, how they will sing of
floods waded, ot fires endured, of perse
cution suffered, of grace extondedl Song
othallt Song of sword! songof hotleadl
song of axe! As when the organ pipes
foeal out - some great harmony, there
corHef occasionally .the sound of the
tremnlan.tev weeping through the ca
dences, adding exquislteness to the per
formances, so amidst the stupendous
aoolaim of the heavenly worshipers shall
come tremulous remembrances of past
endurance, adding a sweetness and
glory to the triumphal strain. So the
glorified mother will sing ot the cradle I
that death : robbed; and tho enthroned
sprit from the almshonse will sing of a
lifetime of want -. God may wipe away
all tears, but not the memory of the
grief that started, them!
2 Furthers It will be an accompanied
song. Some have a great prejudice
against musical instruments; and even
among those who like them there Is an
idea that they are unauthorized. I love
the cymbals, for Israel clapped them in
triumph at the Red sea. I love the harp,
for David struck It in praising the Lord.
I love the trumpet, for we are told it
ahall wake the dead. I love all stringed
instruments and organs, for God de
mands that we ahall praise him on
stringed Instruments and organs. There
is in such music muoh to suggest the
higher worship; for I read that when He
had taken the book the four and twenty
elders fell down before the Lamb, having
every one ot them "harps," and "I
heard tho voice of tho harpers harping
with their harps," and "I saw them that
had gotten the victory from the beast
standing on the soa of grass, having the
harps of God."
Yes, the song is to be accompanied.
You say that all this is figurative.
Then.-1 sav. prove it I do not know
how much of it is literal and how much
of It is figurative. Who can say but
that from some of the precious woods of
earth' and Heaven thore may not be
made Instruments of celestial accord.
In that worship David may take the
harp and Habakkuk the shlgionotn and
when the great multitudes shall; fol
lowing their own Inclinations, take up
Instruments sweeter than Mozart. ever
fingered or Schumann ever dreamed of
or Beethoven ever wrote for, let all
Heaven make ready for the burst of stu
pendous minstrelsy and the roll of the
eternal orchestra!
Further: It will be an anticipatlve
song', j. Why, my friends, Heaven bas
hardly begun yet If you had taken
the opening' piece of musio to-day for
the whole service you would not have
made so great a mistake as to suppose
that Heaven is fully Inaugurated.
Festal choruses on earth last only a
short while. The famous musical con
vocation at Dusseldorf ended with the
fourth day. Our holidays last only
eight or ten days, but Heaven, al
though singing for so many years, has
only just begun "the now song." If the
glorified inhabitants recount pastdellv
eranoes they will also enkindle atglorles
to come.
If at nine o'clock, when the church
opened, you had taken the few people
who were scattered through It as the
main audience you would not have made
so great a mistake as If you supposed
that the present population of Heaven
are to be its chief citizenship. Although
millions are already there, the Inhab
itants are only a handful compared
with the future populations. All China
is yet to be saved. All Borneo Is yet to
be saved. ' All India Is yet to be saved.
All Switzerland is yet to be saved. All
Italy is yet to be saved. All Spain Is
yet to be saved. All Russia In yet to be
saved. All France is yet to be saved.
All Engli.nd Is yet to tie saved. All
America- Is yet to be saved. All the
world is yet to be saved. After that
there may be other worlds to conquer.
I do not know but that every star that
glitters In our nights is an inhabited
world and that from all those spheres a
mighty host are to march into our
Heaven'. . There will be no gate to keep
them out We do not want to keep
them out
I have sometimes thought that all
the millions of earth that go Into glory
are but '.a''. Very small colony compared
with the iitfTux from the whole universe.
God could build a Heaven large enough
not only for the universe, but for ten
thousand universes. I do not know just
hbw It will be, but this I know, that
Heaven is to be constantly augmented,
and that the song of glor is rising
higher and higher and the procession it
being multiplied. If llnuven sang when
Abel went up tlio flrnt soul that ever
leftoartli for tfiory how must it sing
now whon souls go up In flocks from all
! Christendom, hour by hour and moment
by moment.
Our happy galhorings on earth ore
chilled by thu tlmulit tliul soon we
must separate. Thanksgiving and
Christinas days come, and the rail trains
flying hither and thither am crowded.
Glad reunions take place. We have a
time of great enjoyment But soon It is
"good-bye" in the hall, "good-byo" at
tho door, "good-bye" on the street,
"good-bye" at the rail train, "good-bye"
at the steamboat wharf.
Wo moot in church. It Is good to bo
here. But soon the doxology will bo
sung, tho benediction pronounced and
the audience will be gone. But there
are no soparatioiis.nogood-b.yos Inlleav
en. At the door of tho house of many
mansions no good-bye. At the pearly
gate, nogood-bye. The song will bo moro
pleasant, because we are always to sing
It Mightier son;; as our other friends
cams in. Mightier song as othor gar
lands are set on the brow of Jesus.
Mlghtior song as Christ's glories unfold.
If tho first day wo enter Hoavon we
sing woll, the next day wo sing better.
Song anticipatlve of moro light, of more
love, of moro triumphs. Always some
thing now to hear, something new to
see. Many good people suppose that
we shall soo lloaveu tho tlrst day wo
get thoro. No! You can not soo bondon
In two wooks. You can not see uomo
In six weeks. You cannot see Venice
in a month. You cannot soo the city of
the New Jerusalem in a day. No; it
will take all etornity to see Heaven, to
count tho towers, to examino the tro
phies, to gaze upon tho throne, to see the
hlerarchs. Ages on ages roll, and yet
Heaven is new! Tho streets new! The
temple new! The joy now! The song
newl
I stayed a week at Niagara Falls,
hoping thoroughly to understand ond
appreciate it But on the last day iney
seemed newer and more incomprehen
sible than on tho first day. Gazing on
the Infinite rush of colostial splondors,
where the oceans of delight meet and
pour thomsolvos into tho great heart of
God how soon will wo exhaust the
song? Never! Never!
Tho old preachers. In describing the
sorrows of tho lost used to lift up their
hands and shout: "The wrath to come!
"The wrath to come!" To-day I lift up
my hands and, looking toward tho great
future, cry: "The joy to come!" "The
bliss to come!" O, to wander on the
banks of the bright river and yet feel
that a little further down we shall find
still brighter floods entering into it!
O, to stand a thousand yoars listening
to the enchanting music of Heaven and
then to find out that the harpers are
only tuning their harps.
Finally. 1 remark, that it will De a
unanimous song. Thore will, no doubt
be some to lead, but all will bo expected
to join. It will be grand congregational
singing. All the sweet voices of the
redeemed! Grand music it will be
when that now song arises. Luther
sings It Charles Wesley sings It
Lowell Mason sings it Our voices now
. . .
mav be barsn and our ears uucun-

ured. but our throats cleared at last.
and our capacities enlarged, you and
will not be ashamed to utter our voices
as loudly as any of them.
Those nations that have always boon
distinguished for their capacity in song
will lift their voices in that melody.
Those who have had much oppor
tunity to hear the Germans sing
will know what idea I mean to
give whon I say that the great Ger
man nation will pour their deep full
voices Into the now song. Everybody
knows tho natural gift of the Afrioan
for singing. No singing on this conti
nent like that of the colored churches
in the South. Everybody going to Rich
mond or to Charleston wants to bear the
Africans sing. But when not only Ethi
opia, but all that continent of darkness
lifts up its hands, and all Africa pours
her great volume of voioe Into the new
song that will bo music for you. Add
ed to this are all the Hlxteon thousand
millions of children that are estimated
to have gone into glory, and the host of
young and old that shall hereafter peo
ple the earth and inhabit the stars.
Oh! tho new song! uatber it all upl
Multiply It with every swoetness! Pour
it into evory harmony! Crown it with
every gladness! Bolt it with every
splendor! Fire it with every glory!
Toss it to tho greatest height of majes
ty! Roll it to tho grandest cyolo
eternity! and then you have b::t the
faintest conception of what John ex
perienced when, amldt the magnlfl
cenoe of apocalyptic vision, he heard it
the new song!
' God grant that at last we may all sing
it But if wo do not sing tho praise of
Christ upon earth wo will nover sing it
in Hoavon. Bo suro that your hearts
are now attuned for the heavenly wor
ship. There is a cathedral in Europe
with fin organ at each end. Organ
answers organ, and the muslo waves
backward and forward with Indesorib
able effect Well, my friends, the time
will come when earth and Hoavon will
bo but different parts of ono great ac
cord. It will bo joy here and joy there!
Trumpet to trumpet! Organ to organ!
Hallelujah to hallelujah! "Until the
day break and the shadows flee away,
turn, my beloved, and be -thou like a
roe or a young hart upon the mountains
of Bether!"

It grows very rapidly. The process of

It Is a great thing for a family to bd
independent It is a good thing for the
boys and the girls to know how to do
nil the family work, and to be willing
to do it, mid we have tried to raise our
flock that way. Tho boys can bang a
gato or a window curtain, or put in a
pane of glass, or mend a chair, or make
a wagon for the baby, or cut tho wood
and food the stock, and tho girls can
paper a room as nicely as Mauck, and
they can cut and fit and make their own
garments, from calico to silk, and coojs
as good a meal as anybody, but wo don't
want tliem to do these things all the
time, and they shall not us long as I
can help it. There are some social
privileges and pleasures that are reason
able and natural and innocent, and we
all like to enjoy them. If a friend comas
to sou me 1 wish to entertain him pleas
antly and cordially, and not have to say,
"I've got to cut some stove wood right
now and you will have to excuse mo."
If ladles call to see my wife and daugh
ters it would not be pleasant or polite
for them to say, "We don't keep a cook
and are doing our own work, and you
will havo to excuse us this morning."
Tho poor should not envy the rich for
enjoying these social pleasures, nor
should tho country peoplo be envious of
the town peoplo. All would do the
same thing if they could, and it is
everybody's duty to better their con
: dition it they can. Nino farmers out
of ten would move to town if they
could afford to. Thoy would do It for
their children's sake for better schools
and bettor preachors and better social
advantages. But nine out of ten can't
move, and so it is tliuir duty to build up
the country schools and conn try churches
and raiso thu grade of both. If the Al
liance does no other work in the legisla
ture than to demand and enfore a tax
that will establish a good ton months'
school in every settlement that can num
ber fifty scholars between tho ages of
eight and eighteen, it will have accom
plished a great work. Give the country
children a chance. If they had had it
heretofore I would havo boon in the
country farming until now, for thore my
children spent the happiest years of
, tholr life. They talk about it yet with
memories of delight Tho springs and
branches, and iisli-pond, and the creek
and mill not far away; tho wash-hole
and the spring-board; the walks through
shady, winding ways to tho lime-sink
field, and tho little spring lieyond that
was overhung with haw trees; the dells
and coves, and meadows, where the wild
flowers grew, the hunt for huckleberries,
and maypops, and black haws, and scaly
barks, and walnuts; the ripened grain,
! and the grass falling before tho reaper's
blade, and their sweet dizzy rides on'
tho top of tho loaded hay. They still
lovo to toll how they Ashed, and seined,
and hunted squirrels, and rabbits, and
coons, and set traps for birds and killed
j the water moccasins that hung in the
! bushes that bordered tho meadow
j branch. They talk about the colts they
j raised, and the narrow escapes they had
from butting rams and vicious bulls and
runaway teums, and they magnify all
these accidents and incidents the more
and moro as timo recedes from those
happy days. If they live to the allotted
' ages of threo scoro years and ten, they
will still recall their farming life with
fonder memories than any othor.
I wish that all tho children of this
blessed, bountiful land could be raised,
at least in part in the country upon a
well-watered, well-managed farm. Bill

Vital Statistics Show a Constant Increase
In Length of Idle.
How long can an average man live
under the present order of things?
With a view to ascertaining something
definite about the matter the writer
asked the opinion of some of the leading
New York physicians on the subject.
Dr. Cyrus Kdson was of the opinion
that, all things considered,, people are
physically stronger now than they were
several generations back.
"Statistics of longevity aro hard to
collect," he said, "for the reason that It !
wiuld vftrinfea n finm rtnrlMun of ftlltr or '
five generations to obtain actual figures.
Within the last twenty yours sanitary
science has made wonderful strides.
We have passed the period when sick
peoplo who got well did so in Spite of
tho doctor. There is a more Intelligent
understanding ot the causes of diseuso,
and tho result can notbiithobenoflclul."
"Then you think that, on tho whole,
people are stronger now than in the
'good old days?' ".
"Thero are' many things to point to
such a conclusion. Take, for Instance,
the last expedition to tho north pole.
The men on that expedition lived under
conditions to which the men of a gener
ation or two ago suocumbed. They had
passed the limit where animal and vege
table life could exist, and where the
thermometer registered over seventy
degrees below zero. This feat was never
accomplished before in the history of
the world."
He also instancod the walking feats
of the present day, which had broken
all previous records.
"As to the duration of human life I
am not a statistician," he suid, "and
could give nothing definite, but I bo
lleve the people of the present are at
least as long-lived as their ancestors on
an average."
Dr. Bryant of the Health Department
Anybody Can lluy It, llut Nobody Bat s
Warrior Can Wear It.
What does "mufti" mean? Is It an
Americanism, an Anglicism, a Gallicism,
or pure, unadulterated slang? In the
days ot spelling aud definition bees, fif
teen years rlto. It would have been se
lected as agood word to torture aspirants
for prizes.
Briefly expressed, mufti Is a military
term largely used in Kurppo aud in a
less degree in tli is country for the use
of civil dress or plain clothes by a regu
lar military or naval olllcor entitled to
wear uniforms at all times, as was actu
ally done by utllcers in tho army or navy
of the great nations up to tho close of
the last century.
In tho present day there seems to lie
such a burning desire on tho part of
officers ln the array and navy of the
United States to got rid of theevldencos
of their presumably honorable calling
that tho wearing of mufti, or plain
clothes, is an almost universal' practlco.
Whether it Is for the good of tho coun
try that tho objection to wearing uni
forms on tho streets, outside ot parades
or public processions, Is extending to
tho non-commlssloned oftlcera and pri
vates of the regular service, is a ques
tion that is just now receiving consider
able attention from thoughtful citizens.
Turning for a moment to the philo
logical issue Involved in the word
"mufti," it appears that tho term is of
Arabic origin, and was .adopted into the
llindoostani tongue to express the as
sumption of plain clothes by theoflloers
in the service of the old Kast IndiaCom
pany, which was a commercial corpora
tion invested with military powers. Jn
the original Arabic "mufti" indicated a
person, not a thing, namely, a doctor or
teacher of religions or Mohammedan
law, which is its present primary inter
pretation in Turkey. The French speak
of an otllcer "in mufti" as "en l'ekin,"
thus again recognizing the Oriental
origin of the word. Tho (lot-man army
uses "mufti" to express the assumption
of civilian clothes after being in uni
form, and the Russians recognize the
terwi in the same sense. San Francisco
Chronicle.

The Anglo-.lowish .Association gives a

of their persecution Is the restriction

Jews form seventy-live per cent of the
total population, while the number of
children allowed to receive elementary
education in schools is on'y five percent
of the total number attending such
