MORRISVIIXE and HYDE PARK, Thursday, June 4-, 1891. Flowers For Both SMes. t" A UNIQUE MEMORIAL DAY SERVICE 1 IN BROOKLYN TABERNACLE, Dr. Talmage Preaches a Sermon Abont ! the Soldiers of the Civil War, and Of fers a Garland for the North and One for the South. ! Brooklyn, May 31. Yesterday hav ing been observed as Decoration Day, Dr. Talmage this morning preached an appropriate sermon. It was a novel and unprecedented service, as in differ ent parts of the audience were many of those who had belonged to both Fed eral and Confederate armies, the sub ject having been previously announced, namely, "Two Garlands for Northern and Southern Graves.',' Over the pul pit were two wreaths of beautiful flow ers, and tney were linked together so that they were an object lesson of the subject presented. Text: Isaiah xliii, 6 "I will say to the north, Give up, and to the south, Keep not back." AN APPROPRIATE TEXT. Just what my text meant by the north and south I cannot say, but in the United States the two words are so point blank in their meaning that no one can doubt. They mean more than east and west, for although between those last two there have been rivalries and disturbing ambitions and infelicities and silver bills and "World's fair contro versies, there have been between them no batteries unlimbered, no intrench- ments dug, no long lines of sepulchral nlounds thrown up. It has never been Massachusetts Fourteenth regiment against Wisconsin zouaves; it has nev er been Virginia artillery against Mis sissippi rifles. East and west are distinct words, jmd sometimes may mean diversity of interest, but there is no blood on them. They can be pronounced without any intonation of wailing and death groan. But the north and the south are words that have been surcharged with trage dies. They are words which suggest that for forty years the clouds had been gathering for a four years' tempest which thirty years ago burst in a fury 4;hat shook this planet as it has never been shaken since it swung out at the first world building. I thank God that the words have lost some of the intensity which they possessed three decades ago; that a vast multitude of northern people have moved south, and a vast multitude of southern people have moved north, and there have been intermarriages by the ten thousand, and northern colo nels have married the daughters of southern captains, and Texas rangers have united for life with the daughters of New York abolitionists, and their children az-i half northern and half southern and altogether patriotic. But north and south are words that need to bo brought into still closer harmoniza tion. I thought that now, when we are half way between presidential elections, and sectional animosities are at lowest ebb, and now just after a presidential jour ney, when our chief magistrate, who was chiefly elected by the north, has been cordially received at the south; and now, just after two Memorial Days, one of them a month ago, strewing flowers on southern graves, and the other yesterday, strewing flowers on northern graves, it might be appropri ate and useful for me to preach a ser mon which would twist two garlands, other for the southern dead, and have the two interlocked in a chain of flow ers that shall bind forever the two sec tions into one; and who knows but that this may be the day when the prophecy of the text made in regard to the ancients may be fulfilled in regard to this country, and the north give up its prejudices and the south keep not back its confidence. "I will say to the north, Give up, and to the south, Keep not back." . TUB PARTINGS. ' But before I put these garlands on the graves I mean to put them this morning a little while on the brows of the living men and women of the north and south who lost husbands and sons and brothers during the civil strife. There is nothing more soothing to a wound than a cool bandage, and these two garlands are cool from the night dew. What a morning that was on the banks of the Hudson and the Savan nah when the son was to start for the war! What fatherly and motherly counsel 1 What tears I What heart breaks I What charges to write home often 1 What little keepsakes put away in the knapsack, or the bundle that was to be exchanged for the knapsack I f The crowd around the depot or the steamboat landing shouted, but father and mother and sister cried. And how lonely the house seemed after they went home, and what an awfully va cant chair there was at the Christmas and Thanksgiving tablet And after the battle, what waiting for news I What suspense till the long lists of the killed and wounded were made out! All along the Penobscot, and the Con necticut, and the St. Lawrence, and the Ohio, and the Oregon, and the James, and the Albemarle, and the Alabama, and the Mississippi, and the Sacramento there were lamentation and mourning and great woe, Rachel weeping for her children, and refusing to be comforted because they were not. The world has forgotten it, but father and mother have not forgotten it. They may be now in the eighties or the nineties, but it is a fresh wound, and will always re gain a fresh wound, i Coming down the steep of years the 'hands that would have steadied those Itottering steps have been twenty-eight years folded into the last sleep. The childlessness, the widowhood, the or phanage who has a measuring line long enough to tell the height of it, the depth of it, the infinity of it? What a mountain, what an Alps, what a Hima laya of piled up agony of bereavement in tile simple statement that three hun dred thousand men of the north were slain and five hundred thousand men of the south were slain, and hundreds of thousands long afterward, through the exhaustions there suffered, going down to death! SYMPATHY FOR THE BEREAVED. I detain from the top of the tomb these two garlands that I am twisting for a little while that I may with them soothe the brow of the living. Over the fallen the people Said: "Poor fel low ! What a pity that ho should have been struck down I" We di not, how ever, often enough say: "Poor father! Poor mother! Poor wife! Poor child!" and so I say it now. Have you realized that by that wholesale massacre hun dreds of thousands of young people at the north and the south have never had any chance? We who are fathers stand between our children and the world. We fight their battles, we plan for their welfare, we. achieve their live lihood, we give them the advice of our superior years. Among the richest blessings of my life I thank God that my father lived to fight my battles un til I was old enough to fight for my self. Have you realized the fact that our civil war pitched out upon the farm fields of the north and the plantations of the south a multitude that no man can number, children without fatherly help and protection? Under all the ad vantages which we had of fatherly guidance, what a struggle life has been to the most of us! But what of the children, two and five and ten years of age, who stood at their mother's lap with great, round, wondering eyes, hear ing her read of those who perished in the Battle of the Wilderness, their father gone down amid the dead host ? Come, young men and women, who by such disaster have had to mako your own way in life, and I will put the garland on your young and unwrinkled brow. Yes ; you have had your own Malvern Hill, and your own South Mountain, and your own Gettysburg all along these twenty years. Come I And if I cannot spare a whole garland for your brow I will twist in your locks at least two flowers, one crimson and one white, the crimson for the struggle of your life which has almost amounted to carnage, and the white for the vic tory you have gained. FLOWERS FOR THE SURVIVORS. Before I put the two garlands I am twisting upon the northern and south ern tombs I detain the garlands a little while that I may put them upon the brow of the living soldiers and sailors of the north and south, who though in variance for a long while, are now at peace and in hearty loyalty to the United States government, and ready if need be to march shoulder to shoul der against any foreign foe. The twenty-six winters that have passed since the war, I tliink, have sufficient ly cooled the hatreds that once burned northward and southward to allow the remark that they who fought in that conflict were honest on both sides. The chaplains of both armies were hon est in their prayers. The faces " that went into battle, whether they marched toward the Gulf of Mexico or marched toward the north star, were honest faces. It is too much to ask either side to believe that those who came out from their homes, forsaking father and mother and wife and child, many of them never To return, were not in earn est when they put their life into awful exigency. V ltness tlie last scene at family prayers up among the Green mountains, or down by the fields of cotton and sugar cane. Men do not sacrifice their all for fun. Men do not eat moldy bread, or go without bread at all, for fun. Men do not sleep un sheltered in equinoctial storms for fun. There were some, no doubt, on both sides who enlisted for soldiers' pay, or expecting opportunity for violence and pillage, or burning with revenge and thirst for human blood, but such cases were so rare many of you who were in the war four years never confronted such an instance of depravity. As chaplain of a Pennsylvania regi ment and as a representative of the United States Christian commission I for a while at the front, and in those hospitals at Hagerstown and Will iamsburg, and up and down the Poto mac, where all the churches and farm houses were filled with wounded and dying Federal and Confederates, I for got amid the horrors to ask on which ;ide they fought, when, with what lit tle aid 1 could take them for their suffering bodies and the mightier aid I could pray for their souls, I passed the days and months amid scenes that in my memory seem like a ghastly dream rather than possible reality. When a New Orleans boy, unable to answer niy question as to where he was hurt, took out from the folds of the only garment that had not been torn off him in the battle a New Testament marked with his own life blood, and I the leaf turned down at the pas- vpeace I give unto you, not as tlJO world pivet.il give I unto you," it read just as though it had been a north ern New Testament. And- when I sat down and took from a Soutli Carolinian dying in a barn at Boonesville his last message to his wife and mother and child, it sounded just like a message that a northern man dying far from home would send to his wife and moth er and child. And when I picked np from the bat tle fiqjd of Antietam the fragment of a letter which I have somewhere yet, for the name and the address were torn off. I saw it was the words of a wife to her husband, telling him how the little child prayed for their father every night that he might not get hurt in the bat tle, and might come homo Found and come home well, but that if anything happened to them they might all meet again in the world wnere there are no partings. It read just as a northern wife would write to a husband away from home and in peril, conveying the mes sages of little children. Oh, yes ; they were honest on both sides, and those who lived to get home and are living yet were just as honest, and ought they not for the suffering they endured have a coronal of some kind? THEY WERE BRAVE MEN. Tea, there was courage on both sides. They who were at the front know that. When the war opened the south called the northern men "mudsills," and the north called the southern men "brag garts" and "pompous nothings," but after a few battles nothing more was said about northern "mudsills" and southern "braggarts." It was an army of lions against an army of lions. It was a flock of eagles mid-sky with iron beak against another flock of eagles iron beaked. It was thunderbolt against thunderbolt. It was archangel of wrath against archangel of wrath. It was Hancock against Longstreet. It was Kilpatrick against Wade Hampton. It was Slocum against Hill. It was O. O. Howard against Hood. It was Sherman against Stonewall Jackson. It was Grant against Lee. And the men who were under them were just as gallant, and some of them are here, and I detain the two garlands that I have twisted for the departed, and in recognition of honesty and prowess put the coronals upon these living Federals and Confederates. North and South, we will make a great fuss about them when they are dead. There will not be room on their tomb stones to tell how much we appreciate them. We shall call out the military and explode three volleys over their graves, making all the cemetery ring under our command of "Fire!" We will have long obituaries in newspapers telling in what battles they fought, what sacrifices they endured,- what flags they captured, in what prisons they suffered, but all that will come too late. One word in the living ear of praise for their honesty and courage will be worth to them more than a mil itary funeral two miles long, or a pile of flowers half a mile high, and ten bands of music playing over the grave "Star Spangled Banner" or '"Way Down South in Dixie." Now, while they are in their declin ing years, and their right knee refuses to work because of the rheumatism they got sleeping on the wet ground on the banks of the Chickamauga, or their digestive organs are off on a furlough because of the six months of prison life, in which their rations were big slices of nothing, and their ears have never been alert since the cannonade in which they heard so much they have been able to hear but little since in these cases I call upon the people of north and south to substitute a little ante mortem praise for the good deal of post-mortem eulogium. These two gar lands that I twisted for northern and southern graves shall notbe put upon the grass of the tomb until they have first encircled the foreheads of the liv ing. I will let the front of the wreath como down over the scar of a scalp wound made by the sword of a cavalry man at Atlanta, and droop a little over the eye that lost its luster in the mine explosion at Petersburg. Huzza for the living! Calla lilies and camellias and amaranths and palm branches for the living! THEY KNOW. But we must not detain the two gar lands any longer from the pillows of those who, for a quarter of a century, have been prostrato in dreamless slum ber, never oppressed by summer heats or chilled by winter's cold. Both gar lands .ire fragrant. Both have in them the sunshine and the shower of this springtime. The colors of both were mixed by him who mixed the blue of the sky, and the gold of the sunset, and the green of the grass, and the whiteness of the snow crystal. And I do not care which you put over the northern grave and which over the southern grave. Does any one say: "What is the use? None of them will know it. Your Decoration Days both sides Mason and Dixon's line are a great waste of flowers." Ahl I see you have carried too far my idea that praise for the living is better than praise for the departed. Who says that the dead do not know of the flowers? I think they do. The dead are not dead. The body sleeps, but the soul lives and is unhindered. No two cities on earth are in such rapid and constant communication as earth and heaven, and the two great Decoration Days of north and south are better known in alms celestial than terrestrial. With what interest we visit the p.'ace of our birth and of our boyhood or girlhood days! And have the departed no interest in this world, where they were born and ran somed, and where they suffered and triumphed? My Bible does not posi tively say so, nor does my catechism teach it, but my common sense declares it. The departed do know, and the bannered procession that marched the earth yesterday to northern graves, and the bannered procession that inarched a month ago to southern graves, were accompanied by two grander though invisible processions that walked the air processions of the ascended, pro cessions of the martyred, processions of the sainted and they heard the an thems of the churches and the salvo of the batteries, and they stooped down to breathe the incense of the flowers. These august throngs gathered this morning in tnese pews and aisies and corridors and galleries are insignificant compared with the mightier throngs of heaven who mingle in this service which we render to God and our country while we twist the two garlands. Hail, spirits multitudinous ! Hail, spirits blest ! Hail, martyred ones como down from the King's palaces ! How glad we are that you have come back again. Take this kiss of welcome and these garlands of reminiscence, ye who languished in hospitals or went down under the thun ders and the lightnings of Fredericks burg and Cold Harbor and Murfrees- boro and Corinth and Yorktown and above the clouds of Lookout Mountain. Among the thousands of gatherings at the north and at the south for Dec oration Days I am conscious that this service is unique, and that it is the only one in which there has been twisted two garlands, one for the grave of the northern dead and the other for the grave of the southern dead. O, Lord God of the American Union, is it time that we bury forever our old grudges! My 1 My I Can we not be at peace on earth when this moment in heaven dwell, in perfect love, Ulysses S. Grant and Robert E. Lee, William T. Sher man and Stonewall Jackson, and tens of thousands of northern and southern men who, though thev once looked askance at each other from the oppo site banks of the Potomac and the Chickahominy and the James and the Tennessee, now are on the same side of the river, keeping jubilee with some of those old angels who near nineteen centuries ago came down one Christ mas night to chant over Bethlehem, uiory to uod in tne ingnest; oa earth peace, good will to men !" THERE SHOULD BE NO SECTIONALISM, 1 nave Deen waiting lor some years for some one. else to twist the two gar lands that I today twist, but, no one doing it, in the love of God and my country I put now my hand to the work, and next spring about this time, if am living and well, I will twist two more garlands for northern and south ern graves, and every springtime, until some man or woman whom I may have cheered a little in the struggle of this life, shall come out and put a pansy or two on my own grave. But if the time should ever come when this land shall be given over to sectional rancor and demagogism, and north and south or east and west shall forget what the good God built this nation for, and it shall halt on its high career of right- ousness and liberty and peace, and be come tne agent ol tyranny and wrong and oppression, then let some young man whom I have baptized in infancy at these altars go out to Greenwood and scoop up my dust and scatter it to the four winds of heaven, for I do not want to sleep, and I will not sleep in a land accursed with sectionalism or op pression. And now I hand over the two gar lands, both of which are wet with many tears tears of widowhood and orphan age and childlessness, tears of suffering and tears of gratitude, and as the cere mony must be performed in symbol, there not being enough flowers to cover all the graves, take the one garland to the tomb of some northern soldier who may yesterday have been omitted in the distribution of the sacrament of flowers, and the other garland to the tomb of some southern soldier who may amonth ago have been omitted in the distribu tion of the sacrament of the flowers, and put both the wreaths gently down over the hearts that have ceased to beat. God bless the two garlands! God save the United States of America ! A Great Man. John Jay was one of the truly great men of our revolutionary period. His character was without blemish, and ho was more anxious to do right than to acquire popularity or office. On one occasion, in an exciting political cam paign, he procured a vote of censure against a member of a committee whom he thought blameworthy. The committeeman lost his temper and abused Mr. Jay roundly. On the next day Mr. Jay learned that his sus picions were not well founded and that the man had acted in all honesty. Ho went to the man promptly and said: "You were right, and I was wrong. I ask your pardon." The man was amazed, and replied, "I have often heard that John Jay was a great man ; now I know it."

Many Business Firms Are Doing a Little Teniporaiice Work of Their Own. It is a significant fact that the eco nomic value of abstinence from intoxi cants is coming to bo more and more generally recognized by the employers of labor. It is announced tuat the em ployes of ttio Florence iron works, near Bordentown, N. J., were recently noti fied that unless hereafter they totally abstain from the use of intoxicating liouors tlievwill be discharged. It is also stated that since receiving this no tice from tho company tlio employes have organized themselves into a tem perance society. A drinking laborer is not only less efficient, but he is likely, where special skill is required, frequent ly to cause serious damage to his em ployer. The Delaware, Lackawanna and West ern Railroad company not only forbid their employes frequenting saloons, and require of them abstinence from intoxi cants while on duty, but they have re cently directed that trainmen employed on tho road shall not sign petitions that have been put in circulation in towns along the lino for signatures to secure licenses for saloons. Several trainmen at Scranton, Pa., who signed license ap plications were summarily discharged by the company. President Sloan is re ported as saying that this rule would govern every section of the road, from Hoboken to Buffalo, in the future. The discharged trainmen at Scranton were told officially that they would be rein stated as soon as they withdrew their names from the license petitions, which they did promptly, and returned to their trains.

The fault is your own, for if you would take them off and properly care for them you would rarely find a skin that would bring you less than 50 cents, and a great many of them would bring you 60, 70 and even 80 cents each. Poor skins, like poor butter, are poor property and bring a poor price. It will cost you only a penny for a postal card on which to send me your ad dress, to secure full printed directions as to tne proper method of taking offand carincr for your calf skins. I will ver' gladly mail these to you free postpaid, 11 you will send me your name and so request. In most of the towns of Ver mom 1 nave Duyers but in localities where I have none I would suggest that a half doz en farmers club together and ship their skins in quantities of 2z or more in which case I will pay all freights after de livery al K. R. depot. I cannot allow you wholesale prices in towns wherel have a buyer but where 1 have none I will gladly arrange with any reli able farmer who is willing to attend to the matter of collect ing skins taken oiF . in his vicinity, and in such case will of course allow the buyer s commission.

Thin lutieh I know n : A CuinmiiiH i,hot h Morton; then tho tiling went on with deadly regularity until Koine MX or wven had lxeii killed on either hide. Finally there were-only two Mortons and ono Cummin left, Tho latter had Just killed otic of Ilia opKncnt. and he lit out for other parts and kept away for a good many months. One day Cummins ramo back. Everybody wan offering bet that 1 tan Morton would hhoot him on feight. Cummins thought no. too, but lie had como bark to try nnd wttlo the thing peaceably if ho could, otherwise if it had to be. Tho two met in tho natural courso of events, and both started to reach for their guns. Cummins Miid his say, though, I m fore tho other got the cinch on him "Dan," ho said, "this thing's gone far enough, an' I reckon wo might a well quit. There's only tne left, an you too. Now what's the uno of It, any way " It struck Dan sort of rviuoiinlly, und ho put up his gun. "Uelieve ye're about right," he said. With that tho two went into the lied Front saloon, and in another ten min utes tho two were patting each other on tho back, and telling each other what a pity it was they hadn't known before what gxid fellows they both wero. They kept feeling better and better. "An' none of it need hev hnpH'ned,w said Morton, "ef your Tom hadn't shot Morton." "He didn't do it," said Cummins. "He did." Tho denial was too much for Cum mins. "You lie!" he hiKnod, and then In a iniimto all tho sworn friendship of tho last half hour went to tlio four winds and forgctfulness, and those two closed in a deadly struggle. Fach was trying to reach for tho other's gun. They surged all over the saloon. Jfo ono interfered for a while. Then the other Morton, who had not trusted the newly made reconciliation, and had kept close by, stepped up to the two, and putting his pistol to Cum mins' head, literally shot his head all to pieces. And that ended the feud. The other Morton was killed shortly afterward in an ordinary quarrel, and Dan U now the only ono left Chicago Tribune. A Curious Fart Abont Mrkal ami Iron. In the interest ing process which has lately come into voguo of platii: ; iron with nickel by pressure bcfwec:i rolls at a welding heat, the nickel is ingeni ously recovered from the clippiu. and shearings of tiie plate, simply I y tho action of dilute sulphuric acid at a temperature of 53 degs., Cent. ; that is, the iron is dissolved, and tho nickel is obtained in the form of thin sheet as it was melted upon the iron, tho opera tion being complete w hen tho evolution of hydrogen ceases ; even fresh acid at tho same tciiiH-raturo has practically no effect hat though tho scimratiou of tho two metals is thus apparently perfectly made, a curious fact is remarked, name ly, that when the residual nickel is chemically examined it is found to dif fer from its original composition, the aiii,....t of iron present being notably increased. An example of this is noted in tho case of a nicklo containing origi nally .09 ier cetit of iron, 2 js r cent moro being found when it was re covered from tho plate cuttings, and even by a long continued treatment with dilute acid the iron could not be sensibly reduced. Tliis peculiar behavior points, it Is believed, to tho possibility of jswitive chemical combination taking place be tween tho metals, and that alloys of iron and nickel are produced in tlie process of welding, it being a fact well known to chemists and metal lurgists that iron, w ith but even a small proportion of nickel, resists the actiou of acids much more than the pure uietal.
