MORRISVILLE and HYDE PARK, Thursday, June II, 1891. THE TABERNACLE PULPIT, REV. DR. TALMAGE THE BURDEN PREACHES BEARER. ON His First Discourse Since He Was Made Chaplain of the Ancient and Honor able Artillery Company of Maachn setts. Brooklyn, June 7. It is no new thing to the members of the Brooklyn Tabernacle church to have their pas tor's eminence acknowledged by the outside world. But even they must have been gratified by the distinction conferred upon him since last Sunday. In listening to Dr. Talmage today they were listening to the chaplain of the Ancient and Honorable Artillery Com pany of Massachusetts, in which office he was formally installed with due cere mony on June 1. The organization, which is two hundred and fifty years old, and the lineal descendant of an English organization dating back to the beginning of the Sixteenth century, has had many distinguished divines as chaplains, and the honor has always been highly appreciated. The subject of Dr. Talmage's sermon this morning was "The Burden Bearer,".and his text Psalms lv, 22: "Cast thy burden upon the Lord, and be shall sustain thee." DAVID'S HARD EXPERIENCE. David was here taking his own medi cine. If anybody had on him heavy weights, David had them, and yet out of his own experience he advises you and me as to the best way of getting rid of burdens. This is a world of bur den bearing. Coming into the house of prayer there may be no sign of sad ness or sorrow, but where is the man who has not a conflict? Where is the soul that has not a struggle? And there is not a day oi all trie year wnen my text is not gloriously appropriate, and there is never an audience assembled on th planet where the text does not fit the occasion, "Cast thy burden upon the Lord, and he shall sustain thee. " , In the far east wells of water are so Infrequent that when a man owns a well he has a property of very great value, and sometimes battles have been fought for the possession of one well of water; but there is one well that every man owns, a deep well, a perennial well, a well of tears. If a man has not a burden on this shoulder, he has a burden on the other shoulder. The day I left home to look after myself and for myself, in the wagon my father sat driving, he said that day something which has kept with me all my life: "De Wtt, it is always safe to trust God. I have many a time come to a crisis of difficulty. You may know that, having been sick for fifteen years, it was no easy thing for me to support a family; but always God came to the rescue. I remember the time," he said, "when I didn't know what to do, and I saw a man on horseback riding up the farm lane, and he announced to me that I had been nominated for the most lucrative office in the gift of the people of the county; and to that office I was elected, and God in that way met all my wants, and I tell you it is always safe to trust him." Oh, my friends, what we want is a practical religion 1 The religion people have is so high up you cannot reach it. I have a friend who entered the life of an evangelist, lie gave up a lucrative business in Chi cago, and he and his wife finally came to severe want, lie tola me tnat in the morning at prayers he said: "O Lord, thou knowest we have not a mouthful of food in the house! Help me, help us!" And he started out on the street, and a. gentleman met him and said: "I have been thinking of you for a good while. You know I am a flour mer chant; if you won't be offended I should like to send you a barrel of flour." My friend cast his burden on the Lord, and the Lord sustained him. In the Straits of Magellan, I have been told, there is a place where, whichever way a ship captain puts his ship he finds the wind against him, and there are men who all their lives have been running in the teeth of the wind, and which way to turn they do not know. 3oiue of them may be here this morn ing, and I address them face to face, not perfunctorily, but as one brother lalks to another brother, "Cast thy burden upon the Lord, and he shall sustain thee." BUSI3TKS3 BUKDKS3. . First There are a great many men who have business burdens. When we see a man harried and perplexed and annoyed in business life we are atjfc to say, "He ought not to have attempted to carry so much." Ah! that man may not be to blame at all. When a man plants a business lie does not know what will be its outgrowths, what will be its roots, what will be its branches. There is many a man with keen fore sight and large business faculty who lias been flung into the dust by unfore seen circumstances springing upon him from ambush. When to buy, when to sell, when to trust, and to what amount of credit, what will be the effect of this new invention of machinery, what will be the effect of that loss of crop, and a thousand other questions perplex business men, until the hair is silvered and deep wrinkles are plowed in the cheek; and the stocks go up by the mountains and go down by the valleys, and they are at their wits' ends, and stagger like drunken men. There never has been a time when there have been such rivalries in busi ness as now. It is hardware against hardware, books against books, chand lery against chandlery, imported arti cle against imported article. A thous and stones in combat with another thousand stores. Never such advan tage of light, never such variety of as sortment, never so much splendor of show window, never so much adroit ness of salesmen, never so much acute ness of advertising, and amid all these severities of rivalry in business, how many men break down! Oh, the bur den on the shoulder I Oh, the burden on the heart! You hear that it is avarice which drives these men of busi ness through the street, and that is the commonly accepted idea. I do not be lieve a word of it. The vast multitude of these business men are toiling on for others. To educate their children, to put the wing of protection over their house holds, to have something left, so when they pass out of this life their wives and children will not have to go to the poorhouse that is the way I translate this energy in the street and store the vast majority of that energy. Grip, Gouge & Co. do not do all the busi ness. Some of us remember when the Central America was coming home from California it was wrecked. Presi dent Arthur's father-in-law was the heroic captain of that ship, and went down with most of the passengers. Some of them got off into lifeboats, but there was a young man returning from California who had a bag of gold in his hand, and as the last boat shoved off from the ship that was to go down that man shouted to a com rade in the boat: "Here, John, catch this gold! There are three thousand dollars. Take it home to my old mother. It will make her comfortable I In her last days." Grip, Gouge & Co. do not do all the business of the world. A.hl my friend, do you say that God does not care anything about your worldly business? I tell you God knows .uore about it than you do. He knows Ul your perplexities; he knows what nortgagee is about to foreclose; he mows what note you cannot pay ae Knows wnat unsalable goods you aave on your shelves; he knows all four trials, from the day you took hold f the first yard stick down to the sale f the last yard of ribbon, and the God ho helped David to be king, and who ielped Daniel to be prime minister, and who helped Haveloek to be a soldier, kui iieip you to discharge all your luties. He is going to see you through. when loss comes, and you find your property going, just take this Book uid put it down by your ledger, and .ead of the eternal possessions that will jome to you through our Lord Jesus Christ. And when your business part ner betrays you, and your friends turn jgainst you, just take the insulting let ter, put it down on the table, put your Bible beside the insulting letter, and then read of the friendship of him who "sticketh closer than a brother." HIS ACCOUNTS TANGLED. A young accountant in New York city got his accounts entangled. He knew he was honest, and yet he could not make his accounts come out right, and he toiled at them day and night until he was nearly frenzied. It seemed by those books that something had been misappropriated, and he knew be fore God he was honest. Tho last day came, lie knew u he could not that day make his accounts come out right he would go into disgrace and go into banishment from the business establish ment. He went over there very early, before there was anybody in the place, and he knelt down at the desk and said: "Oh, Lord, thou knowest I have tried to be honest, but I cannot make these things come out right! Help me today help me this morning!" The young man arose, and hardly Knowing why he did so, opened a book that lay on the desk, and there was a leaf con taining a line of figures which explained everything. In other words, he cast his burden upon the Lord, and the Lord sustained him. Young man, do you hear that? Oh, yes, God has a sympathy with any body that is in any kind of toil ! He knows how heavy is the hod of bricks that the workman carries up the ladder of the wall. He hears the pickax of the miner down in the coal shaft. He knows how strong the tempest strikes the sailor at the masthead. He sees the factory girl among the spindles and knows how her arms ache. He sees the sewing woman in the fourth story and knows how few pence she gets for making a garment, and louder than all the din and roar of the city comes the voice of a sympathetic G5d, "Cast thy burden upon the Lord, and he shall sustain thee." THE WEIGHT OP PERSECUTION. Second There are a great many who have a weight of persecution and abuse upon them. Sometimes society gets a grudge against a man. All his motives are misinterpreted and ins good deeds are depreciated. With more virtue than some of the honored and applaud ed, he runs only against raillery and sharp criticism. When a man begins to go down he has not only the force of natural gravitation, but a hundred hands to help him in the precipitation. Men are persecuted for their virtues and their successes. Germanicus said he had just as many bitter antagonists as he had adornments. The character sometimes is so lus trous that the weak eyes of envy and ealousy cannot bear to look at it It was their integrity that put Joseph in the pit, and Daniel in the den, and Shadrach in the fire, and sent John the Evangelist to desolate Patmos, and Calvin to the castle of persecution, and John Huss to the stake, and Korah after Moses, and Saul after David, and Herod after Christ. Bo srre if you have anything to do for church or state, and you attempt it with all your soul, the lightning will strike you. The world always has had a cross between two thieves for the one who comes to save it. High and holy en terprise has always been followed by abuse. The most sublime tragedy of self sacrifice has come to burlesque. The graceful gait of virtue is always followed by grimace and travesty. The sweetest strain of poetry ever written has come to ridiculous parody, and as long as there are virtue and righteous ness in the world there will be some thing for iniquity to grin at. All along the line of the ages, and in all lands, the cry has been : "Not this man, but Barabbas. Now, Barabbas was a rob ber." And what makes the persecution of life worse is that they come from peo pie whom you have helped, from those to wnom you nave loaned money or have started in business, or whom you rescued in some great crisis. I think it has been the history of all our fives the most acrimonious assault has come from those whom we have benefited. whom we have helped, and that makes it all the harder to bear. A man is in danger of becoming cynical. BELIEVED IN UNIVERSAL DAMNATION. A clergyman of the Universalist ehureh went into a neighborhood for the establishment of a church of his denomination, and he was anxious to find some one of that denomination, and he was pointed to a certain house and went there. He said to the man e ii i l i t . . . oi me uouse, "i understand you are a Universalist; I want you to help me in the enterprise." "Well," said the man. "I am a Universalist, but I have a pe culiar kind of universalism." "What is that?" asked the minister. "Well," replied the other, "I have been out in the world, and I have been cheated and slandered and outraged and abused until I believe in universal damnation I" The great danger is that men will be come cynical and given to believe, as David was tempted to say, that all men are liars. Oh, my friends, do not let that be the effect upon your souls! If you cannot endure a little persecu tion, how do you think our fathers en dured great persecution? Motley, in his "Dutch Republic," tells us of Eg mont, the martyr, who, condemned to be beheaded, unfastened his collar on the way to the scaffold, and when they asked him why ho did that he said, "So they will not be detained in their work ; I want to be ready." Oh, how little we have to endure compared with those who have gone before us!" Now, if you have come across ill treatment, let me tell you you are in excellent company Christ and Luther and Galileo and Columbus and John Jay and Josiah Quincy and thousands of men and women, the best spirits of earth and heaven. Budcre not one inch, though all hell wreck upon you its vengeance, and you be made a tar get for devils to shoot at. Do you not think Christ knows all about persecu tion? Was he not hissed at? Was he not struck on tho cheek? Was he not pursued all the days of his life? Did they not expectorate upon him? Or, to put it in Bible language, "They spit upon him." And cannot ho under stand what persecution is? "Cast thy burden upon the Lord, and he shall sus tain thee." THE BURDEN OF SICKNESS. Third There are others who carry great burdens of physical ailments. When sudden sickness has come, and fierce choleras and malignant fevers tako tho castles of life by storm, we appeal to God; but in these chronic ailments which wear out the strength day after day, and week after week, and year after year, how little resort ing to God for solace! Then people depend upon their tonics, and their plasters, and their cordials, rather than upon heavenly stimulants. Oh, how few people there are completely well. Some of you, by dint of perseverance and care, have kept living to this time; but how you have had to war against physical ailments ! Antediluvians, with out medical college and infirmary and apothecary shop, multiplied their years by hundreds, but ho who has gone through the gantlet of disease in our time, and has come to seventy years of age, is a hero worthy of a pahu. The world seems to be a great hos pital, and you run against rheumatisms and consumptions and scrofulas and neuralgias and scores of old diseases baptized by new nomenclature. Oh, how heavy a burden sickness is! It takes the color out of the sky and the sparkle out of the wave and the sweet ness out of tho fruit and the luster out of the night. When the limbs ache, when the respiration is painful, when the mouth is hot, when the ear roars with unhealthy obstructions, how hard it is to be patient and cheerful and as siduous! "Cast thy burden upon the Lord." Does your head ache? His wore the thorn. Do your feet hurt? His were crushed of the spikes. Is your side painful? His was struck by tho spear. Do you feel like giving way under the burden? His weakness gave way under the cross. "While you are in every possible way to try to restore your physical vigor, you are to remember that more sooth ing than any anodyne, and more vital izing than any stimulant, and more strengthening than any tonic is the prescription of the text, "Cast thy bur den upon the Lord, and he shall sus tain thee." We hear a great deal of talk" now about faith cure, and some people say it cannot be done and it is a failure. I do not know but that the chief advance of the church is to be in that direction. Marvelous things come to me day by day which make me think that if the ago of miracles is past it is because the faith of miracles is past. A SAMPLE CASE. A prominent merchant of New York said to a member of my family, "My mother wants her case mentioned to Mr. Talmage." This was the case. lie said: "My mother had a dreadful ab scess, from which she had sulxered un told agonies, and all surgery had been exhausted upon her, and worse and worse she grew until we called in a few Christian friends and proceeded to pray about it. We commended her case to God and the abscess began immediate ly to be cured. She is entirely well now, and without knife and without any surgery." So that case has come to me, and there are a score of other cases coming to our ears from all parts of the earth. Oh, ye who are sick, go to Christ! Oh, ye who are worn out with agonies of body, "cast thy burden upon the Lord, and he shall sustain thee!" NO LAUGHING MATTER. THE BURDEN OF BEREAVEMENT. Another burden some have to carry is the burden of bereavement. All! these are the troubles that wear us out. If we lose our property, by additional industry, perhaps, we may bring back the estranged fortune; if we lose our good name, perhaps by reformation of morals we may achieve again reputa tion for integrity; but who will brin back the dear departed ? Alas ! me for these empty cradles and these trunks of childish toys that will never be used again. Alas! me for the empty chair and the silence in the halls that will never echo again to those familiar foot prints. Alas! for the cry of widow hood and orphanage. What bitter Marahs in the wilderness! What cities of the dead! What long black shadow from the wing of death! What eyes sunken with grief I What hands tremulous with bereavement! What instruments of music shut now because there are no fingers to play on them! Is there no relief for such souls? Aye, let the soul ride into the harbor of my text. The soul that on Jesus hath leaned for repose, I will not, I will not desert to its foes; That soul, though all hell shall endeavor to shake, I'll never, no never, no never forsake. Now, the grave is brighter than the ancient tomb where the lights were perpetually kept burning. The scarred feet of him who was "the resurrection and the life" are on the broken grave hillock, while the voices of angels ring down the sky at the coronation of an other soul come home to glory. Then there are many who carry the burden of sin. Ah, we carry it until in the appointed way that burden is lifted. We need no Bible to prove that the whole race is ruined. What a spec tacle it would be if we could tear of! the mask of human defilement, or beat a drum that would bring up the whole army of the world's transgressions the deception, the fraud, and the rapine, and the murder, and the crime of all the centuries! Aye, if I could sound the trumpet of resurrection in the soul of the best men in this audience, and all the dead sins of the past should come up, we could not endure the sight. Sin, grim and dire, has put its clutch upon the immortal soul, and that clutch will never relax unless it be un der the heel of him who came to de stroy the works of tho devil. Oh, to have a mountain of sin on the soul! Is there no way to have the bur den moved? O yes. "Cast thy burden upon the Lord." The sinless One came to take the consequences of our sin! And I know he is in earnest. How do I know it? By the streaming temples and the streaming hands as he says, "Come unto me all ye who are weary and heavy laden, and I will give . you rest." Why will prodigals live on swines' husks when tho robe, and the ring, and the father's welcome are ready? Why go wandering over the great Sa hara desert of your sin when you are invited to the gardens of God, the trees of life and the fountains of living wa ter? Why be houseless and homeless forever when you may become the sons and daughters of the Lord God Almighty? A Dentist Who Will Harness nis Patients ltcfore Giving Them Gas. Dr. Maurice B. Smith, a dentist, in future will have an arrangement of straps attached to the operating chair which will prevent patients who are more muscular than the doctor from jumping up and attacking him while recovering from the effects of nitrous oxide gas. Tho doctor has had rather a rough experience with at least two of his pa tients, who, before they had fully re covered from the effects of the gas. made things decidedly unpleasant for him. One of the patients, a stalwart man, measuring over six feet in height and weighing about 200 pounds, gave the doctor a good trouncing. It ap pears that the man had two teeth drawn while under the influence of the gas, and when semi-conscious he made a sudden attack upon the doctor. The latter grabbed the man about the body and told him that the teeth were out and to keep quiet. While in the act of drawing away from the patient the doctor was struck either on the nose or behind the ear. The patient then sprang out of the chair and struck the doctor about the face, knocking him senseless to the floor, and Degan Kicking nun. ii. lady as sistant stood by powerless. Tho den dist's wife, who was in an adjoining room, heard the noise, ran into the op erating room and caught hold of the patient's coat and tried to drag him away from her husband. The wife was struck in the neck twice by the patient, The latter, after coming to his senses, commenced to apologize, and offered to pay for all the damage done. Dr, Ransley, a neighboring physician, was summoned, and upon arriving at the dentist's he found that the hitter's nose was broken, both eyes discolored, and he had several bruises on the head and body. Dr. Smith, in speaking of the affair, said: I have just come from the har ness maker's, where I have arranged for a series of straps to be placed on the chair so that a patient will be ren dered powerless in case he becomes un ruly while under the influence of the gas. Tho patient that attacked me was evidently dreaming about fighting, and on account of seeing my face last t,r ai it.. t wiure luivuig me gas, and seeing me only while semi-conscious, he thought I was the aggressor and immediately began to pitch into me. "The patient, when conscious, offered to pay for all the damage he had done, but as tho damage amounted to break ing my nose and giving me a pair of black eyes I could not appraise the value. About two weeks ago a patient, wnue under the influence of gas, in i i . I i . . agmeu ne was m a ngnt and made a dive for his back pocket. I caught his arms and held him while my lady assistant extracted a revolver from hi3 pocket." Philadelphia Ledger. ODDS AND ENDS. A llride'a First Lesson. A bride's first lesson is to respect the extreme sensitiveness of her husband, doesn t want people to know he who has just been married. Consequently she will be wise if after her first jour ney she assumes a gown that has seen wear; if she will forget to look around in a startled manner whenever her hus band is gone from her side, as it is not likely that he is either going to be lost or stolen. Tho next thing is not to kiss him or hold his hand in public, or call him "darling." Any woman can make a man feel her love without making him ridiculous. Another thing for her to learn is, when she is at a hotel, not to grow confidential with the chambermaid, not to give her a piece of her wedding cake and tell her all about the marriage ceremony, and tell her how she looked. You think this is never done? Ask at some large hotel. And sho shouldn't giggle or look surprised when sho gets a letter lrora iier mother addressed to her in her married name. Men are particularly sensitive creatures about some things, and they are rather given to think a woman don't want a name when sho acts in this way. Ladies' Home Journal.

JV endorsement is given in the issue ot Jan. 14, 1U91: The Use of Salt as a Fertilizer. Salt is benefi cial on all kinds of soil, and is rarely used without good re sults. It is most effective on grass lands, often doubling the yield. It is indispensable for a full yield of mangels, and is almost always benehcial to turnips, cabbages and rutabagas. It may be mixed with plaster for top-dressing grass and clover in the spring, and when sown ovtr young wheat it destroys the Hessian fly. It may be used with ashes, but as wood ashes contain about one-third their weight of lime, it is not usual to mix it with them, lhe salt may be used at the rate of 100 or 200 pounds per acre on irrass and grain crops, and 500 or 600 pounds per acre for root crops. Oats and wheat are preserved from rust by salt; the straw is made stiff, and the grain is clear and bright.
