MORKISVILLE and HYDE PARK, Thursday, July 27, 1893. A DISARMED PEOPLE. DR. TALMAGE FINDS A LESSON IN THE SUBJUGATED ISRAELITE. the Church of Today Has Allowed the In fidels to Assume Too Much In Science and Literature AVe Need More Men Like Agassiz, SiUiman nnd Hitchcock. i Madison, Wis., July 23. The great Ihrong of many thousands from all parts ?f the north and west are gathered at I le Monona Lake assemblv, a Chautau 1 ua held near this city. Rev. Dr. Tal lage this forenoon preached to the great Uultitude on "Sharpened Axes," the text freing I Samuel xiii, 19-21, "Now, there was do smith found throughout all the land cf Israel," etc. My loving and glad salutation to this uncounted host, Chautauquans, Chris tian Endeavorers, gospel workers and their friends from all parts of Wisconsin ttnd America, saints and sinners! My text is gloriously appropriate. W hat palling subjugation the Israelites were Suffering! The Philistines had carried off all the blacksmiths and torn down all the blacksmiths shops and abolished the blacksmith's trade in the land of Israel. These Philistines had a particular grudge against blacksmiths, although I have always admired them and have sometimes thought I ought to have been one myself. The Philistines would not even allow these parties to work their valuable mines of brass and iron, nor might they make any swords or spears. There were only two swords left in all " the land. . Yea, these Philisttnes went on until they had taken all the grindstones from the land of Israel, so that if an Israelitish farmer wanted to sharpen his plow or ms ax he had to go over to the garrison of the Philistines to get it aone. There was only one sharpening Instrument left in the land, and that was a file. The farmers and the mechanics having nothing to whet up the coulter, nnd the goad, and the pickax save a simple file, industry was hindered and work practically disgraced. ! The great idea of these Philistines was lo keep the Israelites disarmed. They might get iron out of the hills to make Bwords of, but they would not have any blacksmiths to weld this iron. If they got the iron welded, they would have no grindstones on which to bring the in struments of agriculture or the military Weapons np to an edge. Oh, you poor, Weaponless Israelites, reduced to a file, how I pity you! But these Philistines were not forever to keep their heel on the neck of God's children. Jonathan, on his hands and knees, climbs up a great rock beyond which were the Phil istines, and his armor bearer, on his hands and knees, climbs np the same rock, and these two men, with their two Bwords, hew to pieces the Philistines, the Lord throwing a great terror upon them. So it was then; so it is now. The two men of God on their knees mightier than a Philistine host on their feet. A CHURCH WITHOUT WEAPONS. I learn first from this subject how dan gerous it is for the church of God to al low its weapons to stay in the hands of its enemies. These Israelites might again and again have obtained supply of 8 words and weapons, as, for instance, when they took the spoils of the Am monites, but these Israelites seemed con tent to have no swords, no spears, no blacksmiths, no grindstones, no active iron mines, until it was too late for them to make any resistance. I see the farm ers tugging along with their pickaxes and plows, and I say, "Where are you going with those things?" They say, ,"Oh, we are going over to the garrison of the Philistines to get these things sharp ened." I say, "You foolish men; why don't you sharpen them at home?" "Oh." they say, "the blacksmiths' shops are all torn down, and we have nothing left us but a file." So it is in the church of Christ today. We are too willing to give up our weap ons to the enemy. The world boasts that it has gobbled np the schools, and the colleges, and the arts, and the sci ences, and the literature, and the print ing press. Infidelity is making a mighty attempt to get all our weapons in its hand and then to keep them. You know it is making this boast all the time, and after awhile, when the great battle be tween sin and righteousness has opened, If we do not look out we will be as badly off as these Israelites, without any Bwords to fight with and without any larpening instruments. I call upon the superintendents of lit rary institutions to see to it that the Wen who go into the classrooms to stand beside the Leyden jars, and the electric batteries, and the microscopes or tele iscopes be children of God, not Philis tines. The atheistic thinkers of this day are trying to get all th intellectual weapons of this century in their own jgrasp. What we want is scientific Chris tians to capture the science, and scholas- ;ic Christians to capture the scholarship, ,nd philosophic Christians to capture he philosophy, and lecturing Christians to take back the lecturing platform. THE WEAPONS OF SCIENCE. We want to send out against Schenkel and Strauss and Renan of the past men ike the late Theodore Christlieb of Bonn, and against the infidel scientists a God worshiping Silliman and Hitchcock and Agassiz. We want to capture all the philosophical apparatus and swing iround the telescopes on the swivel nn- 11 through them we can see the morn- pig star of the Redeemer, and with min feralogieal ha:niner discover the "Rock bf Ages," and amid the flora of the t-eslms find the "Rose of Sharon and the Lily of the Valley." ' We want a clergy learned enough to ilisconrse of the human eye, showing it lo be a microscope and telescope in one instrument, with 800 wonderful con trivances and lids closing 30,000 or 40,000 times a day, all its muscles and nerves land bones showing the infinite skill of an infinite God, and then winding np jwith the peroration, "He that formed the eye, shaliTie not see?" And then we jwant to discourse about the human ear, its wonderful integuments, membrane nd vibra.tio;I(3 its chain of small bones, and its auditory nerves, closing with the question, "He that planted the ear, shall he not hear?" And we want some one able to ex pound the first chapter of Genesis, bring ing to it the geology and the astronomy of the world, until, as Job suggested, "the stones of the field shall bo in league" with the truth, and "the stars in their courses shall fight against Sisera." Oh, church of God, go out and recap lure these weapons. Let men of God go out and take possession of the platform. Let all the printing press of this coun try speak out for Christ, and the report i rs, and the typesetters, and the editors I nl publishers swear allegiance to the Lord God of truth. Ah, my friend, that day must come, rnd if the great body of Christian men Lave not the faith, or the courage, or the consecration to do it, then let some Jon athan on his busy hands and on his praying knees climb up on the rock of hindrance, and in the name of the Lord God of Israel slash to pieces those liter ary Philistines. If these men will not bo converted to God, then they must be destroyed. MORE CHRISTIAN ENERGY NEEDED. Again, I learn from this subject what a large amount of the church's resources is actually hidden and buried and un developed. The Bible intimates that that was a very rich land this land of Israel. It says, "The stones are iron, and out of the hills thou ehalt dig brass," and yet hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of this metal was kept under the hills. Well, that is the difficulty with the church of God at this day. Its tal ent is not developed. If one-half of its energy could be brought out, it might take the public iniquities of the day by make them bite the'dust. If human eloquence were consecrated to the Lord Jesus Christ, it could in a few years persuade this whole earth to sur render to God. . . There is enough undeveloped Christian energy in the United States to bring the whole world to Christ, but it is baned under strata of indifference and under nf sloth. Now, is it ..: limn for the mining to begin, and the pickaxes to plunge, and for this bur ied metal to be brought out anu puui" 1 he turned into how- the Lord's host The vast majority of Christians in this dav are useless. The most of the Lord's Vwtfaiinn bplonsr to the reserve corps, The most of the crew are asleep in the lmmmnrka. The most of the metal is Oh, is it not time for the church of God to rouse up and understand that we want all the energies, all the talents and all the wealth enlisted for Christ's sake? I like the nickname that the English sol' dipra imve to Blucher. the commander, They called him "Old Forwards." Wo have had enough retreats in the church of Christ; let us have a glorious ad vance. And I say to you now as the general said when his troops were af frighted. Rising up in his stirrups, his hair flying in the wind, he lifted his voice until 20,000 troops heard him, cry ing out, "Forward, the whole line! THE LOGICIANS OF THE CHURCH. Again, I learn from this subject that we sometimes do well to take advantage of the world's sharpening instruments. These Israelites were reduced to a file, and so they went over to the garrison of the Philistines to get their axes, and their sroads. and their plows sharpened. The Bible distinctly states in the context that they had no other instruments now with which to do this work, and the Israelites did right when they went over to the Philistines to use their griiKtnes. My friends, is it not right fcJ J-to employ the world's grindstones? If there be art, if there be lode, if there be business fac nlty on the other side, let us go over and employ it for Christ s sake. The fact is we fieht with too dull weapons, and we work witn too auii im- plements. We hack and we maul when we oucrht to make a clean stroke. Let us go over among sharp business men and among sharp literary men and nnd out what their tact is, and then transfer it to the cause of Christ. If they have science and art, it will do ns good to tub aarainst it. In other words, let us em ploy the world's grindstones. We will listen to their music, and we will watch their acumen, and we will use their crindstones, and we will borrow their philosophical apparatus to make our ex periments, and we will borrow their printing presses to publish our Bibles, and we will borrow their rail trains to carry our Christian literature, ana we will borrow their ships to transport our missionaries. That was what made Paul such a mas ter in his day. He not only got all the learning he could get of Dr. Gamaliel, but afterward standing on Mars hill and in crowded thoroughfare quoted their poetry and grasped their logic and wielded their eloquence and employed their mythology until Dionysius, the Areopagite, learned in the schools of Athens and Heliopolis, went down under his tremendous powers. That was what gave Thomas Chalmers his power in his day. He conquered the world's astronomy and compelled it to ring out the wisdom and greatness of the Lord, until for the second time the morning stars sang together, and all the sons of God shouted for joy. That was what gave to Jonathan Edwards his in fluence in his day. He conquered the world's metaphysics and forced it into the service of God, until not only the old meeting house in Northampton, Mass., but all Christendom, felt thrilled by his Christian power. Well, now, my friends, we all have tools of Christian usefulness. Do not let them lose their edges. We want no rusty blades in this fight. We want no colter that cannot rip up the glebe. We want no ax that cannot fell the trees. We want no goad that cannot start the laz team. Let us get the very best grind stones we can find, though they be in the possession of the Philistines, compelling them to turn the crank, while we bear down with all our might on the swift revolving wheel until all our energies nd faculties shall be brought up to 6 bright, keen, sharp, glittering edge. Again, my subject teaches ua on what a small allowance .fmiistme iniquity puts a man. Yes, these Philistines shut Up the mines, and then they took the spears and the swords, then they took the blacksmiths, then they took the grind stones, and they took everything but a file. Oh, that is the way sin works. It grabs everything. It begins with rob bery, and it ends with robbery. It de spoils this faculty and that faculty and keeps on until the whole nature is gone. Was the man eloquent before, it gener ally thickens his tongue. Was he fine In personal appearance, it mars his vis r.ge. Was he affluent, it sends the sher iff to sell him out. Was he influential, it destroys his popularity. Was he placid and genial and loving, it makes him splenetic and cross, and so utterly is he changed that you can see he is sarcastic end rasping and that the Philistines have left him nothing but a file. Oh, "the way of the transgressor is hard." His cup is bitter. His night is dark. His pangs are deep. His end is terrific. Philistine iniquity says to that man, "Now, surrender to me, and I will give you all you want music for the dance, swift steeds for the race, imperial couch to slumber on, and yon shall be refreshed with the rarest fruits in bas kets of golden filigree." He lies. The music turns out to be a groan. The fruits burst the rind with rank poison. The filigree is made np of twisted snakes. The couch is a grave. Small allowance of rest, small allowance of peace, small allowance of comfort. Cold, hard, rough nothing but a file. So it was with Voltaire, the most applauded man of his day: , The Scripture was his Jestbook, whence he drew Bonmots to call the Christian and the Jew; ; An infidel when well, but what when sick? Oh, then a text would touch him to the quick. Seized with hemorrhage of the lungs in Paris, where he had gone to be crowned in the theater 4n uMidol of all France, he sends a mesAvfto get a priest that he may be reCouciled to the church before he dies. A great terror falls upon him. He makes the place all round about him so dismal that the nurse declares that she would not for all the wealth of Europe see another infidel die. Philistine iniquity had promised him all the world's garlands, but in the last hour of his life, when he needed solacing, sent tearing across his con science and his nerves a file, a file. 1 So it was with Lord Byron, his un cleanness in England only surpassed by his uncleanness in Venice, then going on to his brilliant misery at Missolonghi, end fretting at his nurse, Fletcher, fretting at himself, fretting at the world, fretting at God, and he who gave to the world "Childe Harold," and "Sardanapalus," and "The Prisoner of Chillon," and "The Siege of Corinth," reduced to nothing but a file! THE WAGES OF SIN. Oh, sin has great facility for making promises, but it.has just as great facility for breaking them. A Christian life is the only cheerful life, while a life of wicked surrender is remorse, ruin and death. Its painted glee is sepulchral ghastliness. In the brightest days of the Mexican empire Montezuma said he felt gnawing at his heart something like a canker. Sin, like a monster wild beast of the forest, sometimes licks all over its victim in order that the victim may be more easily swallowed; but generally bin rasps and galls and tears and up braids and files. Is it not so, nerod? Is it not so, Hildebrand? Is it not so, Robespierre? Aye! ayel it is so; it is so. "The way of the wicked he turneth up side down." History tells us that when Rome was founded, on that day there were 12 vultures flying through the air, but when a transgressor dies the sky ia black wits rl flocks of fTuZ I see sin robbing Bo ' jMFriresf When eee them going doWn7y peopl' 8 7 week by week, I m -ay by day and ..

The church of God today wants more backbone, more defiance, more conse crated bravery, more metal. How often you see a man start out in 8ome good enterprise, and at the first blast of news paperdom he has collap8edi and aU Ua courage gone, forgetful of the fact that if a man be right aU the newspapers of the earth, with all tnett columns pound ing away at him, cannot do him any per manent damage! It is only when a man is wrong that he can be dajjg,, Why, find ia coin 3 to vindicate i,; iUT. a he is going to stand by yon f riendaf in every effort you make for Christ's cause and tne saivauon of men. I sometimes say to my wifQ. ti,0 i something wrong; the newspapers havi not assaulted me for three monthsl I have not done my duty against public iniqui' ties, and I will stir them up next Sun day." Then I stir them np, and all the following week the devil hnwla find howls, showing that I haV6 uim very. hard. Go forth in the service of Christ and do your whole duty. You have oa sphere.. I.have another sdhere. "The Lord of Hosts is with us, and the God o2 Jacob is our refuge. Selah." We want more of th determination of Jonathan. I do not snppugQ jje wag a very wonderful man, but he got on his knees and clambered np the rock, and with the help of his armor bearer he hewed down the Philistines, and a man of very ordinary intellectual attain ments, on his knees, can storm anything for God and for the truth. We want something of the determination of tho general who went into the war, and as he entered his first battle his knees knocked together, his physical courage not quite up to his moral courage, and he looked down at his knees and said, "Ah, if you knew where I was going to take you, you would shale worse than that!" There is only one question for vou to ask and for mo to ask. What does God want me to do? Where is the field? Where is the work? Where is the anvil? Where is the prayer meeting? Where is the pulpit? And finding out what God wants ns to do go ahead and do it all the energies of our body, mind and soul enlisted in the undertaking. Oh, my brethren, we have but little time in which to fight for God. Ymi will bn dead soon. Put in the Christian cause everv ener gy that God gives you. "What thy hand nnaein 10 ao, ao it with all thy might, for there is neither wisdom nor device in the grave whither we are all hastening." Oh, is it not high time that we wake out of sleep? Church of God, lift up your head at the coming victory! The Philis tines will go down, and the Israelites win go up. we are on the wifimng side. Hear that on th u-mr-in,r e?-t being hooked up to the chariot, and when he does ride down the sky there will be such a hosanna among his friends and such a wailing among his enemies as will make the earth tremble and the heavens sing. I see now tho plumes of the Lord's cavalrymen toss ing in the air. The archangel before the throne has already burnished his trum pet, and then he will put its golden lips to his own, and he will blow the long, loud blast that will make all nations free. Clap your hands, all ye people! Hark! I hear the falling thrones and the dashing down of demolished iniquities, She Kissed the Nefo, In "Old Vienna," one of the most at tractive features of Midway plaisance, a strange incident was noticed, A native of Abyssinia had entered the restaurant and was seated at one of the tables. He was tall and well formed. His hair fell in ringlets upon his shoulders. He was young and handsome, but black as night, Presently a pretty little Tiennese wait ing maid tripped up to where he sat, reacnea aown ana gave mm a rousing kiss. There was great laughter all around, and the handsome darky also laughed, for Jie enjoyed the loke fully, It seems that the waiting maid bad been challenged by a party of American visit ors to kiss the swarthy stranger. She accepted the challenge and won thereby. No woman who had lived any length of time in this country would have done that thing. "The Viennese girl seemed to have no suspicion of any indelicacy in the act, and the fact that the victim to her pleasantry was a negro gave the ad venture, m ner opinion, all the more spice. No one who goes to Europe from this country can fail to be startled by the seemingly special favor in which the ne gro is held abroad. "We do not wonder that the negro likes We in England, Ger many and France. We are not surprised to read in the dispatches that negro jucKejs are ouenng uieir services free, proviueu jignsn lurraien will pay their iransporianon to lagland ami hoard them while there.

STORY OF THE JUG. Once It Wm the Abode of a Fiend, and Farm Went Through It. Mouth. I am a beauty now, I know, with my delicate aiure tint and spray of apple blossoms that little Maggie painted on me hint Rummer, and the gilded words that encircle me, "Praise God, from whom all blessings flow" (Mother Sey mour's suggestion that was), and this lovely knot of ribbon that decorates tho handle. Yes, I'm a beauty, and I am I lad and thankful for all my good for tune, but I am going to do as somo nnarter peoplo have done before me I nm going to astonish you with my early history. I was not always this lovely decorated jug, standing on the handsome, draped mantel, a petted ornament in a happy home. I was a homely enough littlo brown fellow among my brothers in a dark comer of a grocery down town. Father Seymour bought me for his water jug to carry out to the field when he lived on his farm. A handsome farm he owned then. But littlo by little the farm went to ruin. Father Seymour would take me to town with him and have me filled with whisky to take home. How ashamed and degraded I felt, for I could see by the harm it was doing the Seymour family and tho appearance of the men in tho whisky shop that I was in terribly bad business and disgracing myself. The farm was finally sold on a mort gage, and the family moved into a dreary, mean, little house in town, where matters only went fm bad to worse. I know there was dreadful suffering and shame, and I was often about the only sort of dish in tho house that had anything in it, and what I had was poison. Often I had heard Father Seymour promise his wife that he would drink no more, but it would not bo long before he would take me to tho whisky shop and be as bad as ever. But one day Father Seymour came iu and sat down, trembling, and said: "Mother, I am going to have a chance now to be a man. They carried no li cense at tho hist election, and tho rum shops are all closed, and I won't have to stand the temptation of them any more. And, mother, now, by Ood's help and your help, I am going to try once more to be the man I ought." How she cried and kissed him, and how Maggie and Tommy shouted for joy, "Oh, goody, goody!" "And this old jug of yours now, iapa," said Tommy; "don't you want mo to smash it so it can't harm you any more?" And I thought my days were over just as their good days were beginning. But Mother Seymour said: "No, dear, we will put it to good uses just as wo will make good use of our lives hereafter. Tho jug may live to do all thegooditcan to make up for its past record. What can Tommy do with that jug, father, that will be of good to us? Could you give him a little money to get some milk to go with our bread for supper?" So Tommy washed me sweet and clean from the filthy, poison whisky, and went and got me filled with fresh, rich milk at a good neighbor's. How proud I w , and how happy all the family gre-vl Father Seymour soon was able to inoe his family to a better home with many comforts and to keep a cow, so that I was no longer needed to carry milk. Father Seymour always looked at mo with a sad look, as if he would like to have me give him back the years, wasted in shame and sin, when almost all he had went for drink. Union Signal. Would Not Diaobejr Order. "I've got orders, positive orders, not to go there orders that I dare not diso bey," said a youth who was being tempt ed to enter a smoking and gambling sa loon. "Come, don't be so womanish; come along like a man," shouted tho youths. "No, I can't break orders," said John. "What special orders have you got? Come show 'em to us if you can; show us your orders." John took out a neat wallet from his pocket and pulled out a neatly folded paper. "It is here," he said, unfolding the paper and showing it to tho boys. They looked, and one of them read aloud "Enter not into the path of tho wicked and go not into the way of wicked men Avoid it, pas- not by it, turn from it and pass away. "Now," said John, "you see my orders forbid me going with you. They are God's orders, and by his help I don'i mean to break them." Religious Telo- scope. Poverty Not the Cause. It has been a hard year in England, and, according to thoso who think th poverty is the cause of drink, tho ci sumption of liquor should have increase greatly. On the contrary, as Dr. Daw son Burns shows, the drink bill for 189: was 1,770,000 less than in 1801. The to tal bill last year was 1704,430,000. Of this it is estimated that CO r cent, or $122,658,000, is paid by the wage earning class. Exchange. Wine In the United States. The United States produced 10,000,000 gallons more wine last year than Ger many did. Temperance Note.. The chief of police of Baltimore says that he never found bovs in the saloons until larger beer was introduced and games prepared to entice them in. It is said that one of the severest liquor laws ever passed is that of the dramshop act in Mississippi. A liquor dealer can only do business in the front part of his shop, and it is counted a misdemeanor to put up a screen. There are many and heavy fines for any infringement of the law. France has one saloon for every eighty- seven of her population. One million two hundred thousand members of the Salvation Army are pledged total abstainers. Half a million persons, it is said, are employed on the Sabbath in connection with the drink traffic. Of these, 200,000 are young women. Typewriting by 'Wire. ' The telotype, or electrical typewriter, has been designed to meet the require ments of a rapid and reliable printing telegraph instrument, which has long been needed. This instrument is ma nipulated very much in tho samo wayai a typewriter. The transmitter as well as the receiver makes a copy of the mes sage, and the liability of mistakes U thus largely decreased. The instruments work in unison, and it is impossible to send a message from one machino unlet. the corresponding inacl ine at the end of the distant line is properly receiving. Tho record is plainly printed on tho strip of moving paper in front of tho operator. The same instrument can send and re ceive. New York Telegram. llalnty Handiwork. A marvelous curiosity was a sot of 1,000 ivory dishes which wero said to have been purchased by one S'aad from tho maker, Oswald Korthingerns, and exhibited before Pope Paul VI. TIicm duinty turnings, though perfect in every respect, were scarcely visible to tho naked eye and could be cattily inclosed in a casket the size of a peppercorn. A Jesuit father, Ferrarius, made 25 wooden cannon capable of being packed away tn the same space. Boston Common wealth. "My little boy was very bad off for two months with diarrlnen.
