THE POWER OF HOPE.
Dr. Talmajc Says No Better Medicine Did a Man Ever Take. Forgive the Reptatant-The Perfect Life to Come*'Cultivate Hope. I [Copyright, IBO..) 'Washington, D. C.?In this discourse Ur. lttlmage would lift people out of de? spondency and bring something of future loy into earthly depression. The text if Hebrews vi, 19, "Which hope." -?*__?_? ftn Atlantic Ocean of depth and fullness ki the verse from which my text is taken, and 1 only wado into thc wave at the beach and take two words. We have all favorite words ex? pressive of delight or abhorrence, words that easily find their way from brain to lip, words thai have in them mornings nnd midnights, laughter and tears, thun? derbolts and dewdrops. In all the lexi? cons and vocabularies there aro few words that have for me the attractions of thf last word of my text, "Which hope." There have in the course of our life been many good angels of God that have looked over our shoulders, or met us on the road, or chanted the darkness away, or lifted the curtains of the great future, or pulled us back from the precipices, or rolled down upon us the rapturous music of the heavens, but there is one of these angels that has done so much for na that wo wish throughout all time aud eternity to celebrate it?the angel of Hope. nt. Paul makes it the center of a group of three, saying, "Now abideth faith, hope, charity." And, though he says that charity is the greatest of the three, he does not take one plume from the wing, or one ray of luster from the brow, or one aurora from the cheek, or one melody from from the voice of the angel of my text, "Which hope." That was a great night for our world when in a Bethlehem caravansary the Infant Royal was born, and that will be a great night in the darkness of vour poid when Christian hope is born. There will ba chanting in the skies and a star pointing to the Nativity. T will not bother you with the honk of a definition and tell you what hope is. When we sit down hungry at a table, we do not Avant an analytical discourse as to what bread is. Ham! it on; pass it round; give uh a slice of it. John speaks of hope as a "pure hope;"' Peter calls it a "lively hope;" Paul stvles it a "good hope," a "sure hope." a ''rejoicing hope." Ana all up and down the Bible it is spoken of as n>i anchor, as a harbor, as a helmet, as a door; When we draw a check on a bank, we must have reference to the amount of money we have deposited, but Hope makes a draft on a bank in which for her benefit all heaven han been deposited. Hope! May it light up every dungeon, stand by every sickbea. lend a helping hand to every orphanage, loosen every chain, caress everv forlorn soul and turn the unpicture. room of the alms? house into the vestibule of heaven! How su.ges.ive that mythology declares that when all other deities fled the goddens of Hope remained! It was hope that revived John Knox when on shipboard near the coast of Scotland he was fearfully ill, and he was requested to look shoreward and nsked if he know the village near the coast, and he answered: "I know it well, for I see the steeple of that p'ace where Ood first opened my mouth in public to His glory, and I am fully persuaded how weak that ever I now appear I shall not depart this life till I shall glorify His holy name in the same place." His hope was rewarded, and for twenty-five yeais move he preached. That is the hope which sus? tained Mr. Morrell of Norwich when de? parting this life at twenty-four years of age he declared, "I should like to under? stand the secrets of eternity before to? morrow morning." That was the kind cf hope that the corporal had In the hattie when, after several standard bearers had fallen, and turned to a lieutenant-colonel and said. "If I fall, tell my dear wife that I die with a eood hope in Christ and that I am alan to give my life for my country." That WM the good hope that Dr. Goodwin had in his last hour when he said: "Ah, is this death? How have I dreaded as an enemy this smiling friend!" No beter medicine did a man ever take than hope. It is a stimulant, a febrifuge, a tonic, a catholicon. Thousands of peo? ple long ajn departed this life would have been living to-day but for the reason they Jet hope slip their grasp. I have known peop.e to live on hope after one lune was gone and disease had seemed to lay hold of every nerve and muscle and artery and bone. Alexander the Great, starting for the wars in Persia, divided hie property emong the Macedonians. He gave a village to one. a port to another, a field to another and all his estate to his friends. Then Perdiccas asked, "What have you kept for yourself':" He answered triumphantly, "Hope." And, whatever else you and I give away,. we must keep for ourselves hope?all com? forting, all cheering hope. In the heart of every man, woman and child that hears or reads this sermon may God implant this principle right now! Many have full assurance that all is right with the soul. They are as sure of heaven as if they had passed the pearly panels of the pate, as though they were al? ready seated tn the temple of God unroll? ing the libretto of the heavenly chorister. I congratulate all such. I wish T had lt, too?aid assurance?but with me it is hope. "Which hope." Sinful, it expects forgiveness; troubled, it expects relief; bereft, it expects reunion; ciear down, it experts wings to lift: shipwrecked, it ex l_cts lifeboat; bankrupt, it expects eter? nal rie.e?: a pr.-ytfmi 1. it exotcta the wide open dcor of the father's farmhouse. It does not wear itself out by lookinat back? ward; it always looks forward. What is the use of giving so much time to the re? hearsal of the past? Your mistakes are not corrected bv a review. Your losses cannot, by brooding over them, be turned into gains. It is the future that has the most for us, and hope cheers us on. Wc have all committed blunders, but does the railing of the roll of them make them any the less blunders? Look ahead in all mat? ters of usefulness. However much you may have accomplished for God and the wo.Id's betterment your greatest useful? ness is to come. "No," says some one, "my money is gone." "No," says some one. "the most of my years are gone and therefore my usefulness." Why, you talk like ah infidel. Do you suppose that all your rapacity to do good is fenced in by tl.-* life? Arc you going to be a lounger nnd a do nothing after you have quit this world ? It is my business to tell yon that your faculties are to he enlarged and intensified and your qualifications for usefulness mul? tiplied tenfold, a hundredfold, a thousand? th Is your health gone? Then that is a sign that you are to enjoy a celestial health compared with which the most jo? cund and hilarious vitality of earth is in? validism. Are your fortunes spent? Re? member, you are to be kings and queens unto Cod. And how much more wealth voa will have when you reign forever and ever! I want to see you when you get your heavenly work dress on. This little bit of a sr.eck of a world we call the earth is only the place where we get read)' to work. We are only journeymen here, but will be inaner workmen there. Heaven will have no loafers hanging around. The book says of the inhabitants, "They rest hoi day nor night." Whv rest when they work without fatigue? Why seek a pillow vhen there is no night there? I want to see you aficr the pedestrianism o' rav'h has been exchanged for pow.j- of ...li, and velocities infinite and enterprises in? terstellar, intervorld. I suspect that the telescope of that ob servatory bringa in right constellations that may comprise mimd worlds which nerd looking after and need help saintly and missionary. There nay be worlds that, like ours, have sinned and need to be rescued, perhaps saved by our Christ or by some plan that God lins thought out for other worlds as wisc, as potent, ai lovely as the atonement is for our world, The laziness which ha* oi'wed rs ii) th'. world will not cain the -a^d o' eternal .? ? tivitjes?so much tonic i.i th? ; Iv. so m .eh inspiration in thc society, so much achieve? ment after we get the shackles of thc flesh forever.off. Do not dwell sa much on opportunities past, dui put your em? phasis on opportunities to come. Am I not right in saying that eternity can do more for us than can time? Whet will we not be able to do when our powers of locomotion shall be quickened into thc tnmortal spirit's speed. Why should a ird hare a swiftness of wing when it is of no importance how long lt shall take to make its aerial way from forest to for? est and we, who have co much more im? portant errand in the world, get on so slowly? Tlie roebuck outruns us, the hounds are quicker in tho cha?e, but wait Until God lets us loose from all limitations and hinderraents. Then we will fairly be? gin. The startinc post will be the tomb? stone. Leaving the world will be gradua? tion dav before the chief work of our men? tal and spiritual career. Hope eees the doors opening, the victor's foot in stirrup for the mounting. The day breaks?first flush of the horizon. The mission of hope will be an everlasting mission, as much of it in the heavenly hereafter as in thc earthly now. Shall we have (fained nil as soon as we enter realms celestial?nothing more to learn, no othor heights to climb. no new anthems to raise, a monotony of existence, the same thing over and over again for endless years? No! More pro? gress in that world than we ever made in this. Hope will stand on the hills of heaven and look for ever brightening landscape, other transfigurations of color, new glo? ries rolling over the scene, new celebra? tion of victories in other worlds, heaven risina into grander heaveus, seas ot trias; mingled with fire, becoming a more bril? liant glass mingling: with p. more flaming fire. Which hope." Hope on, and, though you mnv never hear of your sop's reformation ann others may think he has left this life hopeless, who knows but that in the last moment, after he ha<; ceased to speak and before his soul launches away, your prayer may have been answered and he be one of the first to meet vou at the thining gate. The Prodigal in the parab'e got homo and sat own at the feast, while the elder brother, who never left the o1^ p"ace. stood pouting at tho back door and did not go iu at all. To another class of persons I intro ince the angel of hope, and they are the inva? lids. I cannot take the diagnosis of your disorder, but let hope cheer you with ono of two thoughts. Such mnrvelom cures are being wrought in onr dav through med? ication and surgery that your invalidism may yet be mastered. Persons as ill as you have got well. Can? cer nnd tuberculosis will yet give way be? fore some new discovery. I see every day people strong and well who not lom. ago 1 saw pallid and leanine heavily on a staff and hardly ab'e to climn stairs. But if vou will not take the hand of hope for eartViy convalescence let mc point vou to the perfect body you nre yet to have if you love and serve thc T-ord. Death will put a prolonged anaesthetic upon your present body, and you vii! never again reel an ache or pain, and then in His good tmie you will have a resurrec? tion body, about which we know nothing expect that it will be painless nnd glorious beyond all present appreciation. What most be the health of that land which never feels cut of cold or bia*. oi hr at, mid where there is no ea.st wind towing pneumonias eui tlie air. your fleetness greater than tlie foot of deer, your _ye fcight clearer than eagle in ur, pc/crt health, in a country where all thc inhab? it, ott are everlastingly well! You who have in your body a-i en? cysted bullet ever since the Civil War; you who have kept alive only by precau? tions and self denials and perpetual watch? ing of pulse and lung; you of the deafened car and dim vision and the severe back? ache; you who have not been free from pain for ten years, how do you like th's story of physical reconstruction, with all weakness and suffering bu ht ra cte i and everything jocund and bounding ndned? Do not have anything to do with the gloom that Harriet Martincau expressed in her dying words: "I have no reason to believe in another world. I have had enough of life in one and can see no rood reason why Harriet Martineau should be perpetuated." Would you not rather have the Christian enthusiasm of ltobert An? nan, who when some one said, "I will be satisfied if I manage somehow to pt into heaven," replied, pointing to a sunken ves? sel that was being dragged up the River Tay: "Would you like to be pulled into heaven with two tugs like that ve.-<_l yon? der? I tell you I would like to go in with ail my sails ^et and colors flying." Again, let me introduce tne element of hope to those good people who arc in de? spair about the world's moral condition. They have gathered up appalling statis? tics. They tell of the number of divorces, but do not take into consideration that there are a thousand happy hames where there is one of marital discord. They tell you of the large number in our land who are living profligate lives, but foreet to mention that there are many millions of men and women who are doing the beet they can. They tell you the number of drunkeriea in this country, but fail to mention the thousands of glorious churches with two doors?one door open for all who will en? ter for pardon and consolation, rind the other door opening into thc heavens for the ascent of souls prepared for transla? tion. From this hour cultivate hope. Do so by reading all the Scriptural promises of the world's coming Edenization, and doubt if you dare the veracity of the Almighty when He says He will make the desert roseate, and the leopard and kid will lie down in the same pasture field, and the lion, ceasing to be carnivorous, will be? come graminivorous, eating "straw like an ox," and reptilian venom shall change into harmlessness, so that the "weaned child shall put his hand on the cockatrice's den, and there shall be nothing to hurt or destroy in all God's holy mountain, for the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the Lord as the waters cover the sea." So much for the world at large. Then cultivate hope in regard to your own health, your own financial prosperity, your own longevity, by seeing how in other people God mercifully reverses things aud brings to pass the unexpected re? membering that Washington lost moro battles than he gained, but triumphed at the last, and, further, by making sure of your eterrud safety through Christ Jesus, understand that you are on the way to palaces and thrones. This life a span long, ending in durations of blis3 that neither human nor archangelic faculties can measure or estimate?redolence of a springtime that never ends and fountains tossing in the light of a sun that never sets. May God thrill us with anticipation of this immortal glee! "Which hope." I said in the opening ot this subject that my text was only the wave on the beach, while the whole verse from which it is taken is an ocean. But the ocean tide. are coming in, and the sea is getting so deep I must fall back, wading out as I waded in, for what mortnl can stand be? fore the mighty surges of the full tide of eternal gladness? "Eye hath not seen nor ear heard; neither hath entered into the heart of man the things which Gjd hath prepared for them that love him." He Wm* Correct Enough. Iii a certain regiment was an exp .rt gymnast, who taught his brother sub? alterns how to walk across the barrack room on their hands. While thus en? gaged one evening the door open jd, and the colonel, a stern disciplinari m, entered the room, looking attentively at the inverted company, shook hi. head gravely and departed without ut? tering a word. Extra parade duty next morning was the least punishment ex? pected for this breach of discipline. Some days passed, however, and, no notice being taken, it was thought that an apology and explanation should be offered by the prime insti? gator of these unsoldierly mov .me. Ld. A reference being made to the eveniig, the colonel amazed the intending apol? ogist by exclaiming: "Hush, my cl ..ir fellow, I would not have anybody know it tor the world. The fact is, I lia! been dining out with an old brotlier officer who had served with me in In? dia, and 'pon my life I had no idea th 3 wine could have such effect upon mo; but when I looked in to see if yon were ^11 right in your quarters I could h ive sworn that I saw you all up: .dd down!"?Tid-Blts. Fn??Jic!t<'il Tcntlmonlnli. A Wheaton, 111., lady who ha _ "tried everything in vain until I oommewccd laking your valuable remedy," bes writ? ten, if the Wheaton News ean be be? lieved, the following testimonial to a country druggist who ia booming a new tonic: "Dear Sir: Before taking your medi? cine I was too weak to spank the baby, but now I can lick my husband. Heaven bless you." This reminds one e>f the Shakopee man who was nearly blind and took Dr. Saw? yer's wonderful elixir. He wrote: "Dear Sir: Before taking your elixir I could not see six inches before my face. Yesterday I saw wood. I feel that I ought to let these facts be known. Send me another bottle." Phinneas E. Perkins, of Mound Cen? tre, S. D., says that before trying the Snake Cure "he had not drawn a sober breath for twenty-five years." Last Sun? day he drew several sober breaths, great? ly to the astonishment of his wife and without injury to his health. He ex? pects a perfect cure?some time. Neptune n:> rt tbo MermRliln. Thc mermaid evidently had found something in the paper that amused her greatly. "Share-and-shaie-alike," said Neptune coyly, as he peered over her shoulder un? til hct golden locka blew into his whis? kers. "Just a little thing I have found here among the estimates of the chief of the bureau of yards and docks," said the nymph. "I see he wants a lot. of money for school teachers, schoolhouses, spell? ing books, slate pencils and that sort of thing." Neptune scratched In's head with his trident, and then with thc air of one who had solved a deep mystery said: "Oh, that's ail right. The chief inteuds to change the name of his department to the 'bureau of school yards and docks.' " No Mix .1 Drink a.
