Sermon
By Rev.
Frank De Witt Tilmafe, D. D.
Los Angeles, Cal., Aug. fl.?In this
sermon the preacher takes for his
theme the hidden voices that call mea
to evil courses and brutish Indulgence
and those thut call us to higher, nobler
and butter llvlug. Thc text Is Ecclesi?
astes z, .0, "For a bird of the nlr shall
carry the voice, and that which hath
winga shall tell thc matter."
Kver since my boyhood days, when
John Brown Introduced me to "Rab
and His Friends," animal stories have
had for me a complete fascination.
Seton Thompson's "Lives at the Hunt?
ed," his "Wild Animala That I Have
Known," bis "Biography of a Grizzly"
and his "Trail of a Fanhlll Stag," Rud?
yard Kipling's "Jungle Tales," Mar?
shall Saunders' "Beautiful Jot?" and
Miss Anna Sewells "Black Beauty"
oCfsr the widest range for the Imagi?
native writer aud the greatest oppor?
tunities for pressing home moral
truths. But, though many books huve
been and are being written whose he?
roes and heroines ure covered with the
shaggy manes of the wild beasts or
with the glossy coats of the domestic
unlmals, by far the most interesting
Animal story 1 huve ever reud ls Jack
Londou's "Call of the Wild." Mr. Lon?
don was a very young man when he
wrote hts masterpiece, yet that story
has found un utmost universal appro?
bation. There are always many voices
calling us down to sin and back to an?
cestral evils.
This sentiment stirred my heart
when I tirst read the book. I was in
a railroad car when "The Call of the
Wild" was placed in my hand I'ay
after day we had been traveling across
the western prulrles. I had finished
all the books lu my satchel when a
gentleman crossed thc aisle and said:
"Here ls a little story; read lt." I
reud it through In a very short time.
But as I traced Jack Londou's mighty
St. Bernard dog from being a pet of
a California millionaire's home until lt
became a wild beast amid the snows
of the far north, leading on a pack of
hungry wolves, I asked myself thia
other question: "Why is there not 'A
Call of the Good' as well as 'A Call
of the Bad'/' Why do we not hear the
Innumerable voices which are de?
scribed by Ecclesiastes as everywhere
around us calling us to cease asso?
ciating with human wolves and de?
structive wild beasts as well as those
that are culling us to let loose our
lower and viler natures?" As I sat In
that car, with thc Arizona deserts slip?
ping away underneath our wheels, I
said to myself: 'Va., there ls 'A Call
of tlie Ooo*l.' It ls even a better theme
for a story than 'The Cull of the Wild.'
May God help me to tench the glorious
lesson that there are many voices
about us, which are calling us up to
his love, Instead of calling us down to
Christ's condemnation.
"The Call of tbe Good," In the irst
place, is spoken by the lips of our an?
cestors, who have been fifty years,
seventy-five, a hundred?aye, perhaps
150 years dead. It comes to us from
forgotten graves, unmarked by tomb?
stones, or, if headstones are there,
wJtb epitaphs moss covered or eaten
away by time, the destroying Icono?
clast. It comes to us not so much
from our fathers and our mothers, but
from great-great-grandfathers, whose
names we have never read unless we
have ferreted them out In some genea?
logical library when trying to prove
our descent from the pilgrim fathers
of the Mayflower time or when trying
to prove hereditary claim to some val?
uable property in England or Scotland
or Germany whose late owners, who
bore our family name, died childless
and without last will and testament.
This "ancestral call of the good"
comes to us in our dispositions, In
our desires, as well as in our physical
makeups and our entailed landed es?
tates.
Family Rraemblsneet.
There is absolutely no doubt In any
Intelligent mind that we inherit our
physical qualities from our ancestors.
If we could only have a family album
which goes back generation after gen?
eration, how easy lt would be for some
ot us to tell from whence our physique
and appearance came. I can see you
now turning over tbe pages of that im?
aginary album and looking at the dif?
ferent pictures. "Yes," you say,
"brother John certainly looks like my
mother's mother, and my grandmother
certainly looks like her father's sister,
ind my great-great-aunt certainly
looks like her grandfather." And back,
generation after generation, you go,
tracing thc physical resemblance of
(?ourself and the other members of
rour family. Even with the few fam?
ily pictures you have you can trace
wonderful similarities between your
brothers and sisters and cousins and
uncles and aunts and great-uncles aud
<reat-auuts and grandparents. Fur?
thermore, outsiders are able to trace
these likenesses as well as your own
aiased eyes.
Some time ago the president of one
>f our western colleges was calling at
ny house. When my wife entered the
)arlor the visitor pointed to an oil por?
trait hanging upon the wall and 3ald:
'I know that is one of your husband's
relatives; they look so much alike.
,Vhy, your husband looks far more like
hat man than he looks like his own
'ather. Who is he?" "That," answer
id my wife, "ls Mr. Talmage's greut
incle. Every one who enters this room
s struck by the similarity in their
ooks. That is the picture of Kev.
ollc and Diarrhoea?A Remedy that
is Prompt and Pleasant.
The prompt results produced by
'hamberlain's Colic, Cholera and
Jiarrhoea Remedy together with its
leasant taste have won for it a place
i many households. Mr. Vi. T. Tay
>r, a merchant of Winslow, Ala.,
;rites: "I have used Chamberlain's
'olic, Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy
lyself and also with men on my
lace, for diarrhoea and colic and it
[ways gives relief promptly and
leasantly." For sale by.
B. S. Ashby & Co.,
Accomac, and all county agencies.
Samuel Jv. Talmage of Georgia, who
was president of the famous* Ogle?
thorpe university and Mr. Talmage's
grandfather's youngest brother." If I
look like Samuel K. Talmage, who died
before I was born, why could he not
have looked like his grandfather or
great-grandfather? If I Inherit my
physical traits from my grandfather
j and he in turn from his grandfather,
why, In the same way, cannot I trace
back .my spiritual nature and those
higher yearnings after tbe better and
nobler life and my holler desires -trace
thembnek generation after generatlou
to some remote progenitor? Why can?
not I hear that ftfroff voice pleading
with me to be good und true? Juck
London's noble St. Bernard dog heard
"The'Call of the Wild" pleading with
him to become a wolfish king, to lead
on lils hungry pack to destroy the elk
or 'he moose caught In the northern
snows. Sly friends, we, too, may hear
the ai-inge ancestral voloes within us.
We k$ovt that the voices of our Chris?
tian forefathers and foreinothers. per?
haps a hundred years dead, are now
calling to us to live the Christ life and
to walk with God. Voices-myriads of
voltes-are about us, voices celestial,
voices demoniacal, ancestral voices
which call us up as well us evil voices
which call us down!
As we place the palms of our hands
as sounding boards back of our ears
we may hear other strange voices call?
ing us to the higher life. At first we
cannot make out what these voices
ire. We aro lu doubt whether we are
listening to slleuce Itself or to voices
crying from a long distance. We are
lu doubt whether we hear any real
joupd, just as we used to be when, as
boys, we would place our ears close
to the railroad track to hear the rum?
bling of the oncoming train. At first
we would hear a faint murmur, the
bum of the rail, but the train would
come neurer und the rumbling would
grow louder and louder. So, when we
plaoe our ears close to the side of the
cradll, we seem to hear the voices of
childhood days, the parental voices of
the old homestead. These in chorus
are sounding "Thc Call of the Good."
How long, how very long ugo, in child?
hood days, those voices first sounded!
, Calls io the Higher Lif*.
How many years back can you re?
member those voices of childhood?
"Oh," you answer, "I can remember
back twenty, thirty, forty years ago.
I can remember clear back to the time
when I was five years of age. I re?
member when my father sold his farm
and went to town and became a store?
keeper. We had a big yellow cat on
that farm, which was my playmate.
I wanted to take that out along to
town, but mother would not lot me.
When all tbe children, of whom I was
the youngest, were piled Into the wag?
on to leave tlie old house, I cried so
hard that mother at last relented and
said I could take the cat. I remember
how I held that cat in ray arms aud
carried her to our city bouse." What,
cannot you remember farther back
than tFiat? Oh, yes, you can, my broth?
er. I think toduy you can hear strange
"Voices of the Good" calling you to the
better life, which were whispered In
prayer over your cradle. Perhaps to?
day you can hear parental voices,
pleading with you for the better life,
which were whispered over you on the
day after you were born.
Many years ago when the Massachu?
setts hills were covered with forests
and In the dark recesses of the woods
the smoke from tbe Indian wigwams
was seen by the pilgrim coloulsts three
little white children were stolen away.
Searching party after searching party
went forth, but the lost could not be
found. Many years after there came a
rumor to the coast thut three young
maidens were living with au Indian
tribe lo the Interior of tho state. The
father and mother of one of these sto
leu children went to this tribe, but
when they urrlved there they could not
tell their owu daughter from the other
white maidens. Their daughter was
stolen when a baby; now she wus a
grown girl. Finally the motlier sat
down undor a tree and began to sing
the old lullaby with which she used to
croon her darling to sleep. No sooner
did thc mother begin to slug that lulla?
by than one of the young girls stopped
lu her work to listen. Then she crept
up nearer and nearer to the singing
woman, 'linn with a bound she raD
mid placed her head in the white worn
in's lap and in the Indian dialect sob?
bed: "Mother! My mother! My lost
ind found mother!" Ah, yes, it was the
k'olce of the cradle that called her to
aer mother's side. And so today you
ind I hear strange voices that are
loundlng "The Call of the Good." They
ire the voices of prayer, of love, of
enderuess with which our mothers and
mr fathers gave us to God when we
vere very little children. Friends, can
lot you hear these voices? Just put
four hand to the back of your ear nnd
n God's name listen. Yes, those voices,
hose loving voices, those voices of pa
?ental prayer, of early childhood, ut
ered perhaps over our cradles, are now
?ailing us to the higher life.
The Call of the Living.
But we do not have to listen to "The
'all of the Good" lu echoes alone. We
lo not have to hear this call to the
lotter life simply in the voices of dead
ncestors and In parental pleadings
nd the woolngs of childhood hours.
Ve can hear it also lu the good deeds
f the consecrated men and women
vho are conspicuous every where
round us. Ah, how many we can
ear if we are only willing to open
ur ears and listen to them!
Nobilities and sacrifices of humau
Ife for the good of their fellow men
re everywhere sounding. I enter the
bysldan'l office, and what do I find?
Mean, contemptible, selfish and blood
blrsty vampires," says some cynic.
The doctors, as a class, will not only
rain you of your blood, but they will
ob you of every dollar they can." Ob.

B. S. Ashby & Co. I D
Accomac .and all county agencies. I
no, my eynlcul friend. That is not
what I Bad, us u rule, in the physician's!
effie-, There I Hud as noble a class of1
men as ever lived, men who are doing
one third, perhaps one-half, of their
work for nothing or perhaps even less
than nothing. 1 go to the great Chi-{
cago surgeon, Dr. Murphy, and say:'
"Dr. Murphy, here ls a young girl suf-1
ferlng. She has not a cent. Will you
operate on her for nothing?" "I will,"
says Dr. Murphy. "Send her down."
And send her down I did. I go to the
brilliant Massachusetts lawyer, George
F. Hoar, ami say: "Mr. Hoar, your
country needs you. Will you live and
die s poor man? Will you live lu a
boarding house In Washington upon a
meager salary so that you may leave
your country a rich heritage of a life
sacrificed for duty's sake?" The young
lawyer, George F. Hoar, answers, "I
will." Senator Hour lived and died
financially a poor man.
I enter the study of the great French
..thor Zola. I say: "Mr. Zola, there is
a young mun, Alfred Dreyfus by name,
who has been unjustly condemned and
sent to Devil's Island. He never has
committed a crime; neither have his
.Censers brought forth ono proof of a
crime. Will you throw your influence
against the ringleaders of the French
army ? Will you lie cursed and be cruci?
fied and sent to prtsou for Justice's
sake while you stab to death the in?
iquities that are destroying the French
government.*?I Emile Zola answers, "I
will." I go into the college cluss room
and say to som* of the brightest stu?
dents sitting there: "Young mon, will
you flt yourselves for service lu for?
eign missionary fields? Will you give
your lives up to Qed and humanitv
for a mere pittance of a salary and bo
separated from ull the opportunities of
wealth that you could win at the bar
or In the medical profession or behind
the merchant's counter?" No sooner
do I speak than scores und hundreds of
young men raise their hands and cry:
"I will! If my God and my country
need me, I am ready to lay down my
life In their service. I will! I will!"
Oh, the noble sacrifices for Justice and
honor and truth and Christ and coun?
try and hoinc and loved ones we can
see on every hand! Do not these In?
spire you and me to answer "The Cali
of the Good?" Do they not bid you
say, "I will; yes, in God. name, I will
lire the higher sacrificial life for oth?
ers?"
(hanged and Purified.
But, after all, I believe the greatest
"Call of tlie Good" comes from the tes?
timony of men and women who were
once, as wild beasts of passion, roam?
ing over the mountains of sin, carrying
death and terror everywhere, but who,
by the grace of Qed, have been com?
pletely changed. Their voice was ouce
the voice of hate; now it is the voice of
love. Their eyes were once bloodshot
;iud their hands sharp clawed aud their
teeth as cruel as the crooked beak of a
hawk, ready to make Its fatal plunge
Into the heart of dove or lamb or fawn.
Now their ey.es are eyes of gentle?
ness; their feet ure like the great paws
it tlie noble St. Bernard dogs of St.
Uothard pass which the monks send
forth and which climb over the Alps to
liunt for the lost and the dying travel?
ers. These men and women, once cor?
rupt, are now purified. Once wild
>easts of passion, now geutle as lambs,
hey follow ut the feet of the Good
Shepherd, und they come to us aud say,
'If the grace of God could change us
ind save us the grace of God can splr
tually change you If you will let lt."
Sot from the Jungle of sin to the Jun
jle of sin did they go, but from the far
?onntry of sin they came back as re
ieemed sons and daughters to their
'ather's house. Not from mau to beast,
>ut from evil monsters to God's salut
ihip, h^s been their redemption, traus
ormatlon, transmigration aud splritu
ilizatlou.
If some of us could not feel that God
aves the vilest and the lowest and the
-def of sinners, we could not feel that
'The Call of the Good" was for us.
rhere is a natural law that water
minot rise higher than its source. I
po down Into the valley and I find tlie
irooks leaping over the rocks. I see
lie creeks and the rivers, with their
rreat serpentine coils, bending and
.'biding through the meadow lands. I
ee waters tumbliug over miller's
.'heel and, like circus rider from the
op of Bushklll or Minnehaha falls,
japing through their hoops of gold,
rhicb the sunbeams In the forms of
alubows have lifted for them to play
rith. I know the water In the valley
an do all this because the source of
bat water ls higher than meadow
iuds. Those waters come from reser
olrs of clouds which have emptied
liemselves upon yonder mountain side,
tut in our own strength we have no
ighlands. If left to ourselves we are
othlug but a bare, bleak Sahara des
rt, filled not with life, but with death.
tut if the spiritual waters eau rush
own from the mountain sides and
leanse and purify, and turn Into spir
ual oases the bleak, bare, sinful des
rt lives of some of the men and wom
i we have known, the spiritual waters
ushlng down from <Joel's heights can
lally purify and cleanse and change
s Into spiritual oases. Yes, our bleak,
are, sinful lives?bleak and bare as
ie most repulsive of all Sahara des
rts?can be completely changed. Truly
rhe Call of the Good" comes mightily
od overwhelmingly to ns from the
?deemed lives of the Davids, and the
eters, and the Magdalenes, and the
acchaeuses we see about us on every
snd.
A Call to Sinners.
"The Call of the Good" in Its high
it development means "The Call to
ome to Christ." I nm not now ex
?niling this invitation to thc saints,
ut to the sinners; not to the angels
ving In the white mansions of the
?w Jerusalem or singing in the celes
al choir lofts, but to thc wild beasts
'. the human race?to those who have
andered farther and farther away
ntil they think that even Christ him
elf hap ceased to love them or to care
Dr them. I offer K not so much in
ie homes of purity as upon the wild
muntaln sides of sin, In the thickets
f evil aud In the cold blizzards of de
pslr. Remember, Christ comes to us
ot so much as a Judge, but as a
avlour, a rescuer, a redeemer. Will
ou listen to the "Divine Call of the
lood?" Will you be purged with
yssop until you are clean? Will you
e washed tn the atoning blood until
our garments become whiter than the
I)
driven snow?
( 'hrlst would save even the lowest
and the vilest. He would save Paul,
the chief of sinners, even as he would
save the gentle John. He would do for
us In ? spiritual way what that Indian
mother in a physical sense tried to do
for her little daughter many years ugo
upon one of the ice floes of Lake Hu?
ron. This mother was an Indian
squaw of Manitoulin island, of the
OJibway tribe. She was standing up?
on the lee neur to the shore one even?
ing. Suddenly the Ice upou which she
rtood parted, and the block blew out
Into the lake. Next morning the In?
dians found her frozen body, with her
dead baby by her side. But before tho
mother died this Indian squaw took
off her own clothes and wrapped them
about her baby. Then with her uaked
body she lay down upon the ice to
shield her child from tlie fierce winds
and cuddled the little one close auder
her naked breast. So the divine Christ
has come to us. He has laid dow i. his
life as a sacrifice for us. He has
placed his body between us und the
evil results of our sins, and today
upou the cross he says: "Oh, sinner,
come to me; live In me. I have died
that you might live forever in God und
with God!"
Men aud women who, as wild beasts
of passion, are roaming over the hill?
sides of sin, will you not heed tills
divine invitation? Will you let the
blood of an atoning Saviour be shed In
vain? From being a sinful, human
beast and spiritual outcast will you not
be changed into one of Christ's glori?
fied spirits of earth and heaven, which
shall live under the divine benediction
nnd dwell with your redeemed ones
forever and ever? "The Cull of the
Good" is here. Listen. Do you hear
lt? Will you answer its summons
now?
Jesus, take this heart of mine,
Make lt pure nnd wholly thine.
Thou hast bled and died for me;
I will henceforth live for thee.

Secretary Bonaparte's Signature.
The signature of Charles J. Bona?
parte, tbe new secretary of tho navy, ls
the subject of much speculation in the
different bureaus of the department.
Nothing like it has been seen for at
least four generations of secretaries,
and the speculation is us to bow long
lt will last In Its present entirety. It is
large, distinct, carefully rounded, and
every letter is made with care. It is
distinctly handsome, and Secretary Bo?
naparte writes it with much cure,
spelling the "Charles" out and finishing
with a little flourish and a curefully
added period. Secretary Long's signa?
ture used to look like a rapid dash
downhill, Secretary Moody's was au
Incoherent assemblage of vertical and
Inclined Hues and Secretury Morton's
bold, running hand showed u tendency
to stretch out into a straight line be?
fore ho finished his incumbency.
Secretary Bonaparte has calmly ig?
nored suggestions that "C. J." would
)c Just as binding and would be less la?
borious and devotes the time while tlie
-gnatnre is being .formed to learning
he why and wherefore of the paper
>efore bim, so that the time is by no
neaus lost and the temptation to per
'unctory signing is much lessened.?
