Washington, D. C.?Dr. Talmage, in
the following disc. urse. which he hasse ;
for publication this week, gives a prescrip?
tion for all anxiety and worriment, and
illustrates the divine sympathy for all who
are in any kind of struggle. Thc te::t is
Matthew xiv, IS, "And His disciples went
and told Jesus.''
An outrar?ous assassination had just
taken place. To appease a revengeful
woman King Herod ordered the death ol
that noble, seif-sacriru.ng prophet,. John
the lia pt isl. Thc group ol thc disciples
v ere thrown into grief and dismay. They
felt themselves utterly defenseless. There
was no authority to which they ould op
peal, and yet grief must always find ex?
pression. If there be no human ear to
near it, then the agonized soul will cry it
aloud to tbe winds and the woods and the
watara. But herc was an me that was
willing to listen. There is a te I,ler pa
thoa and at the same time a most admir?
able picture in the words of my text.
'They went and to i Jesus." He could
understand all their grief, and He imme?
diately soothed it Our burdens are not
more thau half so heavy to carry if another
shoulder is put under the other end of
them. Here wc find Christ, His brow
shadowed with grief, standing amid the
group of discinle . who, with tears an 1
violent gestieulatic.is and wringing ol
hands and outcry of bereavement, arc ex?
pressing their woe. Raphael, with his
skillful brush, putting upon the wall of a
palace some scene of sacred story, gave
not so skilllul a stroke as when the plain
hand of the evangelist writes, "They went
ami told .fesus."
Tho old Goths and Vandals once carre
do vn upon Italy from th" north Ku
rojie. and they upset the gardens, and
they broke down the.statues and s\ -it
?wit everything that was goori and beau
tifuf. So there is ever ana anon in .he
history of all the sons and daughters of
our race an incursion of rough handed
troubles that come to plunder and ran?
sack and put to the torch all that men
highly prize. There is no cave so deeii'v
cleft into the mountains as to afford us
shelter, and the foot of fleetest courser
cannot bear us beyond the quick pursuit.
The arrows they nit to the string ny with
unerring dart until we fall pierced and
I feel that 1 bring to you a most appro?
priate message. I mean to bind up all
your griefs into H bundle and set them on
fire with a spark from (Jed's altar. The
prastiiption that cured the sorrow of thc
disciples will cure all your heartaches. I
have read that hen Godfrey and his
army marched out to capture Jerusalem.
as they came over the hills, at the first
f!a>h ot the pinnacles of that beautiful
city, the army that had marched in si?
lence lifted a shout that made the earth
tremhle. Oh, you soldiers of Jesus Christ,
marching . n toward heaven. 1 would that
? to-day. by some gi.am from the palace oi
Sod's merry and (Jori's strength, you muli!
be lifted into great rejoicing and that as
the prospect of its peace breaks ** youl
enraptured gaze you might raise one glad
hosanna to the Ix>rd!
In the first place I commend the belia
t ior of those disciples to all burdened
souls who are unpardoned. There come?
? time in almost every man's history when
he feels from some source that he has an
erring nature. The thought may not havo
such heft as to fell him. It may be only
like the flash in an evening cloud just aftei
a very hot summer day. One man to get
rid of that impression will go to prayer,
another will stimulate himself by ardent
spirits, and another man will dive deepei
in secularizes. But sometimes a nran can?
not get rid of these impressions. The fact
is, when a man finds out that his eternity
is poised upon a perfect uncei'ainty, and
that the next moment his foot may slip,
he must do something violent to make him?
self forget where he stands or else fly fot
Some of you crouch under a yoke, and
you bite thc dust when this moment, you
?'kV rise up a crowned conqueror. Driven
and perplexed as you have been by sin, go
and tell Jesus. To relax the grip of death
from your soul and plant your unshackled
feet upon the golden throne Christ let thc
tortures of the bloody mount transfix
Him. With the beam of His own cross
He will break down the door cf your dun?
geon. From the thorns of rm own crown
He will pick enough gems to make your
brow blase with eternal victory. In every
tear on His wet cheek, in every gash of
His side, in every long, blackening mark
of laceration from shoulder to shoulder,
in the grave shattering, heaven storming
death groan 1 hear Him say. "He that
cometh unto Me I will in nowise cast ont."
"Oh." but yon sty. "instead of curing
my wound you want lo make another
wound?namely, that of eonvictio..!" Have
you never known a surgeon to come and
find a chronic disease and then with sharp
caustic burn it all oat? So the ginee oi
God conies to the old sore of sin. lt hag
long been rankling there; but, bv divine
grace, it is burned out through these fires
of conviction, "tho flesh eomimr again as
the flesh of a little child:" "where sin
abounded, grace much more aboundeth.''
With the ten thousand unpardonable sins
of your life, go and tell Jesus.
You will never get rid of your sins ia
any other way, and remember that th?
broad invitation which I extend to you
will not always be extended. King Al
fred, before modern timepiece* were in?
vented, used to divide the day into three
parts, eight hourseach. and then had three
wax candles. By the time thc first candle
had burned to the socket eight hours lind
gone, and when the second candle had
burned to the socket another eight hours
had gone, and when all the three candles
were gone out then the day had passed.
Oh, that some of us, instead of calculating
our days and nights and years by any
earthly timepiece, might calculate them
by the numbers of onportunities and mer
cies which are burning down and burning
ont, never to be relighted, lest at last we
be amid the foolish virgins who cried,
"Our lamps have gone out:''
Again, I commend the behavior of the
disciples to all who are tempted. I have
heard men in mid-life say they had never
led into temptation. If you have
noF felt temptation, it is because you have
not Lied to do right. A man hoppled and
handcuffed, as long as he lies quietly, does
not test the power of the chain, but when
he rises up and with determination re?
solves to snap the handcuff or break the
hopple then he finds the power of the iron.
And there are men who fiave been for ten
and twenty and thirty yerrs bound hand
ami foot by evil habits who have never
felt the power of the chain because they
have never tried to break it. It is very
east to go on down with the stream and
witn the wind lying on your oars, but jost
turn around and try to go against thc
wind and the tide, and you will find it is
a different matter. As long as we go down
the current of our evil habit we seem to
get along quite smoothly, but if after a
while wc turn around and lr-1 the other
way. toward Christ and pardon and
heaven, oh. then how we have to lay to
the oars! You will have your tempta,ic.i.
Yon have one kind, you another, you an?
other, not one person escaping.
Again, I commend the behavior of thc
disciple* to all those who are aburod an I
to the slandered and perrocuted. When
Herod put John to death, the disciples
knew that their own heads were not safe.
And d > you know that every John has a
Herod ? 1 here are persons in life who do
not wish you very well. Your uisfortunes
are hrmcvcomt to them. Through their
i.vi h iiuv hiss at you, misinterpret , -Ut
motives, p.nd would be glad to see you up?
set. No man gets tin,.ugh life without
having a pommeling. Sonic slander comes
after you horned and husked and hoofed
to gore and trample you, and what are
you to do? I tell you plain'y that all who
serve Christ must suffer persecution. It is
the worst sign in the world for you to be
be able to say. "I have not an enemy in
tho world.'' A woe is pronounced in the
Bible against the one of whom everybody
sneaks well. If you arc at peace with all
thc world and everybody likes you and
approves your work, it is because you are
an idler in the Lord's vineyard and are
not doing your duty. All those who have
served Christ, however eminent, all have
been maltreated at some stage of their ex
perienre. You know it was so in the time
of George Whitefield when he stood ami
invited, liieij into th^.jdngdom_o| _God;
hat did the learned Dr. Johnson say ot

mntebank. How was it when Robert

A little child went with her father, a
sea captain, to sea, and when the first
storm came the little child was very much
frightened, and in-the night rushed out of
the cabin and said. "Where is father,
where is father?' Then they told her.
"Eather is on deck guiding the vessel and
watching the storm.' The little child im?
mediately returned to her berth and said,
lt's all right, for father's on deck."

Interesting Calculations Made by Chem?
ists?A Pound Lump Will AccofnplUh
More Than a Hundred Men?Pulls a
Heavy Train One-sixth of a Mlle.
If yon raise 330 pounds 100 feet
nigh in one minute, you have done
33,000 foot-pounds of work in a min?
ute, and thia is called one-horse
power. When we have weight, dis
banoe and time we have the three ele?
ments which constitute a measure of
work by which two men or two horses
or two machines can be oompared.
This had been done for some time be?
fore men began to realize that there
was a distinct relation between such
units of work and quantities of heat.
Count Rumford first attempted to
measure this by determining the quan?
tity of heat which was involved in the
boring of a cannon at the arsenal at
Munich, Germany. Other observers
followed him, and finally adopted
what is known as the mechanical
equivalent of heat, namely, 778 foot?
When the chemist wants to de?
termine the power contained iu one
pound of coal, he simply crushes his
ooal to a fine powder and takes a
small quantity of it, which he care?
fully weighs, and by chemical means,
burns under water. Having eprevi
ously determined the exact weight
and temperature of this water, he
finds its temperature after this quan?
tity of coal has been burned iu it,
and then figures out that if the small
pinch of coal which he burnt adds so
much temperature to the small quan?
tity of water, a pound of the coal will
add a proportionate quantity to a
larger weight of water.
Let us, for the purpose of what
follows, take a pound of what we will
eall average coal, containing, say,
10,000 heat units. This would be
somewhat smaller in size than a man's
fist. If we could burn this pound of
coal completely and entirely under
water and let all its heat go into the
water, we could raise the temperature
of 625 pounds of water sixteen de?
Picture to yourself that you have a
bathtub five feet long, two feet wide,
and filled one foot deep with water,
aud that this water has a temperature
of sixty-four degrees. If the pound
of ooal could be completely burned in
that water and all the heat thereby
involved could be imparted to this
body of water, the later would have
become sixteen degrees hotter, i. e.,
it would be a comfortable bath at
eighty degrees Fahrenheit. This
does not seem like very much work,
but it gives a fair measure of the
quantity of heat which slumbers in
the lump of coal.
The 10,000 heat units in this one
pound of coal which we found suffi?
cient to warm our bath, if expended
in mechanical work, would give us
236 horse power. Watt, the father of
the modern steam engine, found that
a strong brewer's horse could, during
eight hours, clo work sufficient to
raise 330 pounds 100 feet high in one
minute, and hence he called this
quantity of work performed in this time
one boise power. We must remem?
ber, however, that the horse will not
be raising constantly, for after each
hoist the rope and hooks must be
agaiu lowered, so that scarce four out
of the eight hours are actually spent
in the active work of hoisting. We
have, therefore, hidden away in this
oue^pound of coal the full day's work
of a strong Percheron horse.
The snowfall in winter often seri?
ously impedes travel ou city streets,
as well as on railways. This has led
inventors to study out and patent a
number of devices intended to melt
away the snow. The fallacy of this
mode or proceeding becomes apparent
as soon as we figure out what a pound
of coal eau do in that way. It takes
142 heat units to melt one pound of
ice or snow when this ice or 'snow is
already at thirty-two degrees. If it is
colder, it will take as many more heat
units as are required first to bring
the Bnow to this melting temperature,
known as the freezing point. There?
fore, when the snow is just ready to
melt, the heat in the pound of coal is
just sufficient to melt seventy-one
pounds of snow. This is less than
one-third of an ordinary cart load.
But we have just seen that this pound
of coal carries within it tho power of
236 horses, each of whioh could eas?
ily pull thirty times as much snow, if
loaded in a wagon, as this one pound
of coal can melt.
Again, the 236 horse power of po?
tential energy which we know to be
slumbering in this pound of coal
would do the work of an express loco?
motive for one-fifth of a minute. In
other words, it is enough to haul a
train of eight cars, including Pullman
sleeping cars aud dining cars, at the
rate of fifty miles au hour one-sixth
of a mile. It is enough to haul a
train at the rata of niue miles an hour,
including the grip car, the trailer, and
its quotum of moving cable, a distance
of neaily two miles; and it is enough
also to pull au electric motor car,
loaded with passengers, at the rote of
ten miles an hour, two and one-half
Let us now compare thc power im?
prisoned in this black diamond with
the work of a strong man accustomed
to hard labor. Many observations
show that suoh a man can do, on an
average, about one-tenth of a horse
power. Allow him eight working
hours, equal to 480 minutes. During
this time be occasionally stops for
ahort rests, to change his position, to
pick up another tool, to judge of the
result of his work and to plan for
further procedure. This will easily
consume one-tenth of the time, leaving
432 minutes, which, at one-tenth of a
horse power gives him a total effect of
43.2 horse power as the result of his
day's labor. This pound of coal con?
tains more thau sufficient power to d
in one minute the day's work of five
such strong men. Or it would take
about 2600 strong men, working stead?
ily side by side, to do jointly as much
work in one minute as nature has
locked up for us, ready at our call, iu
a single pound of coal.
An exceptionally strong man has
been known to do one-half horse powei
of work as his'mightiest effort, but in
two and a half minutes' work at thi*
rate he exhausts his muscular force,
Let us suppose 100 such men putting
forth such extreme effort at rope, oi
srank or crowbar; as they fall back,
ed-faced and puffing, to catch their
jreaths, we might imagine this little
)lack lump saying to them: "I oan

like these he was said to have been

How a New Chicago Matron Remem?
bered Her Friends.
A recent Chicago bride who was go?
ing out of town to live distributed
photographs of herself and farewell
gifts to her relatives and friends and
had them framed in a unique aud at?
tractive manmer. They wero to be
mounted nn<ter glass in the manner
familiar to all and known as passe?
partout, butt instead of the usual mat
of linen or cardboard Bhe used a ma?
terial which was especially appropri?
ate, and one w&ich made frame as well
asas picture worthy of being pre?
served among the family heirlooms.
The picture which she gave her
mother had a mat of the white satin
which had been used for her wedding
dress, and across one corner was a
bit of the lace with which the dress
was trimmed. To a sister she gave
a picture also mounted in the while
satin, but with a design of orange
blossoms embroidered upon it, while
the mount for the one given her maid
of honor was of the white satin em?
broidered with a graceful spray of
hride roses. Friends less near re?
ceived pictures mounted with the
goods which had gone to make up the
different gowns of her troussseau. The
mount made from tho material of her
"going-away gown" had forget-me
nots embroidered in small scattered
spray?, while some of the silk and
figured goods were made up plain, be?
ing sufficiently decorative in them?
selves. In each case the mounted pic?
ture was bound in the glass with a
narrow strip of soft leather in a shade
to correspond with the color of the
mount. Upon the back of each was
plainly written the name and date of
the wedding. It is needless to state
that the gifts were prized as the pic?
tures alone never could have been,
and it is safe to predict that other
brides will follow'the graceful fashion.
