Brooklyn, Sept. 10 Rev. Dr. Tal
liagc, who i still obfont on bis round
Ibn world tonr, lias srloctcd as the sub
ject of his Bcrmon throngh the press for
tod;iy "Holy Compulsiou," tho text
W'ing Lnko xiv, 23, "Aud compel thorn
to come iu."
Tho plainest pcoplo iu out day have
luxuries which the kings and queens of
olden times never imagined. I walkod
up and down tho stairs of Ilolyrood pal
ace a palace that was considered ono
of the wond-rs of tho world and I
paid, "Can it bo possible that this is all
(hero was of this reputed wonderful
place?" And this is tuo caso in many
other instances. Thero are fruits in
Westchester county and on Long Island
farms far better than tho pomegranates
and apricots of Bible times. Through
all tho ages thero have been scenes of
festivity, and tho wealthy man of my
text plans a great entertainment and
invites his friends. If one builds a boau
tiful home, ho wants his acquaintances
to come and enjoy it If ono buys an
exquisite picture, ho wants his friends
to como and appreciate it, and it was a
laudablo thing when tho wealthy man
of my text, happy himself, wanted to
make other people happy. And so tho
invitations went out, but something
went very much wrong. You can im
agino the embarrassment of nny ono
who 1ms provided a grand feast when
he finds out that the guests invited do
not intend to come. Thero is nothing
that so provokes the niastor of tho feast
as that.
Well, these people invited to this
great banquet of the text niado most
frivolous excuses. Tho fact was, I sup
pose, that some of them wero offended
that this man had succeeded bo much
better in tho world than they had.
There aro people in all occupations and
professions who consider it a wrong to
them that anybody olso is advanced. I
suppose the.se people invited to tho feast
said among themselves: "Wo aro not
going to administer to that man's van
ity. He is i;roud enough now. Wo
won't go. Besides that we could all givo
parties if wo niado our money tho way
that man makes his. "
So when tho messengers went out
with the invitations thero was a unan
imous refusal. Ono man said, "Oh, I
have bought a farm, and I must go and
look at it." Ho was a laud speculator
find had no business to buy laud until
he knew about it. A frivolous excuse.
Another man said, "I have bought fivo
yoke of oxen. " Tho probability is that
lie was a speculator in live stock. Ho
ought to have known about tho oxon
before ho bought them. Besides that, if
ho had been very anxious to get to tho
feast, he could have hooked them up and
driven them on tho road there. Another
frivolous excuse. Another man said,
"Oh, I have married a wife, and I can't
come, " when if he had said to his wife,
"I have an invitation to a splendid din
ner. It is highly complimentary to me.
I should very much like to go. Will yo i
go along with me?" she would havo
said, "To bo sure, I will go. " Another
frivolous excuse. Tho fact was that they
did not want to go.
Hrlng Tn the Lowly,
"Now, "said tho great man of tho
feast, "I will not be defeated in this
matter. I have with an honest purpose
provided a banquet, and there are scores
of people who would like to como if
they were only invited. Here, my man,
here; you go out, and when yon find a
blind man givo him your arm and fetch
him in, and when you find a lanio man
give him a crutch and fetch him in, and
when you find a poor man tell him that
there is a plato for him in my mansion,
and when you find some ono who is so
ragged aud wretched that ho has never
been invited anywhere then by tho kind
est tenderness and the most loving in
vitation any ono ever had compel him
to como in. "
Oh, my friends, it requires no acute
ncss on my part or on your part to see
in all this affair that religion is a ban
quet. The table was set rn Palestino n
good many years ago, and tho -disciples
gathered around it, and tliey thought
they would have a good time all by
themselves, but whilo they sat by this
table the leaves began to grow and
spread, and ono leaf went to tho east
and another leaf went to tho west until
the whole earth was covered up with
them, and the clusters from tho heaven
ly vineyard were piled up on tho board,
and tho trumpets aud harps of eternity
made up tho orchestra, and as this wine
of God is pressed to the lips of a sin
ning, bleeding, suffering, dying, groan
ing world a voico breaks from tho heav
ins, saying: "Drink, O friends. Yea,
drink, O beloved!" O blessed Lord
Jesus, the best friend I ever had, the
best friend any man ever had, was
there ever such a table? Was thero ever
inch a banquet?
From the cross uplifted high,
Where tho Saviour deigns to die,
What melodious sounds I hear
Burstins? on the ravished carl
Heaven's redeeming work Is done.
Come, and welcome, sinner, come.
Religion is a joyous thing. I do not
want to hear anybody talk about reli
gion as though it were a funeral. I do
not want anybody to whino in the pray
er meeting about the kingdom of God.
J do not want any man to roll up his
yes, giving in that way evidence of
his sanctity. The men and women of
God whom I happen to know for the
most part find religion a great joy. It
is exhilaration to the body. It is invig
oration to the mind. It is rapture to tho
soul. It is balm for all wounds. It is
light for all darkness. It is harbor from
all storms, and though God knows that
some of them have trouble enough now,
they rejoice because they ar oa their
way to tho congratulations eternal
fnlvrrmal Ilrotherhood.
Oh, tho Lord God has many fair and
beautiful daughters, but tho fairest of
them all is she whose ways are pleasant
ness and whose paths are peace. Now,
my brothers and sisters for I havo a
right to call you all po I know some
people look back on their ancestral line,
Vid they see they aro descended from
tho Puritans or Huguenots, nndthey re
joice iu that, but I look back on my
ancestral line, aud I see therein such a
mingling and mixture of tho blood of
nil nationalities that I feel akin to all
the world, and by the blood of the Son
of God, who died for all people, I ad
dress yon in the bonds of universal
I come out as only a servant bringing
an invitation to a party, and I put it in
to your hand, saying, "Come, for nil
things are now ready," and I nrgo it
upon you and continuo to urge it, and
before I get through I hope, by tho
blessing of God, to compel you to como
We must tako care how wo give the
invitation. My Christian friends, I
think sometimes we have just gone op
posite to Christ's command, and we have
compelled people to stay out. Some
times our elaborated instructions have
been tho hindrance. We graduate from
our theological seminaries on stilts, and
it takes fivo or six years before we can
como down and stand right besido tho
great masses of tho people, learning
their j'oys, sorrows, victories, defeats.
We get our heads so brimful of theo
logical wisdom that we havo to stand
very straight lest they spill over. Now,
what do the great masses of the people
care about fcho technicalities of religion?
What do they care about the hypostatic
union or the difference between sublap
sarian and supralapsarian? What do
they care for your profound explana
tions, clear as a London fog? When a
man is drowning, he docs not want you
to stand by tho dock and describe tho
nature of the water into which he has
fallen and tell him thero aro two parts
hydrogen ga and one of oxygen gas,
with a common density of 89 F., turn
ing to steam under a common atmospher
ic pressure of J 1 2. He does not want a
chemical lecture on water. Ho wants a
Gone Metaphysics Had.
Oh, my frionds, tho curso of God on
the church, it seems to me, in this day
is metaphysics. We speak in an un
known tongue in our Sabbath schools,
and in our religious assemblages, and
in our pulpits, and how caii pcoplo be
saved unless they can understand us?
We put cn our official frowns, and wo
think the two Filk balloons flapping at
the elbows of a preacher give him great
sanctity. Tho river of God's truth flows
down before us pure aud clear as crys
tal, but wo take pur theological stick
and stir it up aud stir it up until you
cannot see tho bottom. Oh, for tho sim
plicity of Christ in all our instructions
tho simplicity ho practiced when
standing among the people ho took a
lily and said, "Thero is a lesson of the
manner I will clothe you, " and point
ing to a raven said: "There is a lesson
of tho way I will feed you. Consider
the lilies behold tho fowls."
I flifiik ofTen fn oTir reli'gious instruc
tions we compel the people to stay out
by our church architecture. Peoplo como
in, and they find things angular and cold
and stiff, and they go away, never again
to come, when tho church ought to bo a
great homo circle, everybody having a
hyninbook, giving half of it to tho ono
next him; every one who hr.s a hand to
shake hands shaking hands the church
architecture and thechurehBurrouudings
saying to tho people, "Como in and bo
at home." Instead of that, I think all
these surroundings often compel the peo
plo to stay out. Now, let us all repent
of our sins and begin on the other track
and by our heartiness of affection and
warmth of manner and imploration of
tho spirit of God compel the people to
como in. Haw shall wo lead sinners to
accept the Lord's invitation? I think we
must certainly begin by a holy life. We
mutt bo better men, bcttvr women, beforo
we can compel the peoplo to como into
tho kingdom of Jesus Christ. There
are fine essays being written in this day
about science and religion. I tell you
tho best argument in behalf of our holy
Christianity. It is a good man, a good
woman, a life all consecrated to Christ.
No infidel can answer it. Oh, let us
by a holy example compel tho pcoplo to
come iu I
The Safe Path.
I read of a minister of the gospel who
was very fond of climbing among tho
Swiss mountains. Ono day ho was climb
ing among very dangerous places and
thought himself all alone when he heard
a voico beneath him say: "Father, look
out for tho safe path; I am following."
And he looked back, and he saw that ho
was climbing not only for himself, but
climbing for his boy. Oh, let us bo sure
and take the safe path ! Our children are
following; our partners in business aro
following; our neighbors are following;
a groat multitude stepping right on in
our steps. Oh, be sure and take the right
path! Exhibit a Christian example and
so by your godly walk compel tho peo
ple to come in.
I think thero is work also in the way
of kindly admonition. I do not believo
there is a person in this house who, if
approached in a kindly and brotherly
manner, would refuse to listen. If yon
are rebuffed, it is because you lack iu
tact and common sense. But, oh, how
much effective work there is in tho way
of kindly admonition I There aro thou
sands of men all around about you who
have never had ono personal invitation
to tho cross. Givo that one invitation,
and you would be surprised at the alac
rity with which they would accept it.
I have a friend, a Christian physi
cian, who one day became very anxious
about the salvation of a brother physi
cian, and ko he left his office, went
down to this man's office and said, "Is
the doctor iu?" "No," replied the
young man waiting. "The doctor is not
in." "Well," said this physician,
"when he comes in, tell him I call. J
and givo him my Chiirtian love." Thi
worldly doctor caiue home after awhile,
und the mttsngo was given to him, and
ho said within himself, "What does lie
menu by havirg his Christian lovo fr
me?" And he In-camo very much awak-t-ued
and stirred in spirit, and he said
after awhile, "Why, that man must
mean my soul, " and ho went into his
back office, knelt down and began ro
pray. Then he took his hat and went
out to tho offico of this Christian physi
cian and said, "What can I do to bo
saved?" and the two doctors knelt in
the office and commended their souls to
God. All tho means used in that case
was only tho voico of one good man,
saying, "Givo my Christian lovo to tho
doctor." Tho voice of kindly aduioai
tion. Have you uttered it today? Will
you ntter it tomorrow? Will you utter
it now? Compel them to como in.
I think thero is a great work also to
bo dono in the way of prayer. If we had
faith enough today, we could go before
God aud ask for tho salvation of all the
peoplo in our churches, and they would
all bo saved there and then without a
single exception. There might bo pro
fessional men there, political men there,
worldly men there, men who had net
heard the gospel for 20 year, men who
ore prejudiced against tho preachers,
men who are prejudiced against tho
music, men who are prejudiced against
tho church, men who are prejudiced
against God I do not care they might
bo brought in by fervent prayer you
would compel them to como in.
Karnest 1'rayer.
Oh, for such an earnest prayer I Peo
plo of God, lay hold of the horns of tho
altar now and supplicato tho salvation
of all thoso who sit in the same pew
with yon yea, the redemption of all
who sit in your churches.
I tell yon today, my friends, of a
great salvation. Do yon understand
what it is to have a Saviour? Ho took
your place. Ho bore your sins. Ho wept
your sorrows. Ho is hero now to savo
your soul. A soldier, worn out in his
country's service, took to tho violin as
a mode of earning his living. Ho was
found im the streets of Vicnra playing
his violin, but nfter awhile his hand be
came feeble and tremulous, and ho could
no more make music. One day, whilo
he sat there weepiig, a man passed
along and said: "My friend, you aro too
old and too feeble. Give nio your vio
lin. " And ho took tho man's violin and
began to discourse most exquisite mu
sic, and tho peoplo gathered around in
larger and larger multitudes, and tho
aged man held his hat, and tho coin
poured in and poured in until the hat
was full.
"Now," said tho man who was play
ing tho violin, "put that coin in your
pockets. " Tho coin was put in tho old
man's pockets. Then he held his hat
again, and tho violinist played moro
sweetly than ever and played until somo
of tho peoplo wept and sojuo shouted.
And again iho hat was filled with coin.
Then tho violinist dropped tho instru
ment and passed off, and the whisper
went, "Who is it, who is it?" and somo
one just entering tho crowd said: "Why,
that is Baeher, the great violinist, known
all through the realm. Yes, that is tho
great violinist. " Tho fact was, ho had
just taken that man's place, and assum
ed his poverty, and borne his burden, and
played his music, and earned his liveli
hood, and niado sacrifice for tho poor old
man. So the Lord Jesus Christ comes
down, and ho finds ua in ct:r spiritual
penury, and across tho broken strings
of his own broken heart ho strikes a
strain of infinito music which wins tho
attention of earth and heaven. Ho takes
our poverty. He plays our music. Ho
weeps our sorrow. Ho dies our death.
A sacrifice for you, a sacrifice for me.
Oh, will you accept this sacrifico
now? I do not single out this and that
man and this and that woman. But I
say all may come. The sacrifice is so
great all may be saved. Does it not seem
to you as if heaven was very near? I
can feel its breath on my cheek. God is
near. Chirst is Lear. The Holy Spirit
is near. Ministering angels are near,
your glorified kindred in heaven near,
your Christian father near, your glori
fied mother near, your departed chil
dren near. Yorr redemption is near

Total Assets,
The only Savings Bank which has Every Dollar of

110 those who deem absolute safety of principal of greater importance than
. high rates of interest, the following facts will be of interest :
FinsT : IT IS SAFE. It has never lost a dollar by bad investments, nor
has it now, so far as known, a single dollar of poor or doubtful paper. It has
never loaned a dollar outside of Vermont, but every investment is either in
Lamoille county or counties adjoining. No dividends are paid to its stock
holders, but they are held for the security of depositors.
money to loan to the people of Lamoille county and of such portions or adja
cent counties as constitute a legitimate held for the investments of this bank.
During the panic of 1893 no responsible borrower from Lamoille county was
refused money on good paper, and, in fact, since its first organization no home
borrower has ever been denied a loan, if the security offered came within the
rules of the bank.
Third : THE PEOPLE BELIEVE IN IT. During the panic of 1S93 it
had the confidence of the depositing public to such an extent that it actually
gained several thousand dollars in deposits, while the other savings banks in
the state, as a whole, showed a loss of more than a million dollars.
RULE. Most banks compute interest from the first of the month only on such
deposits as are made on or before the fifth. This bank allows interest from
on all deposits made on or before the middle. Quarters commence on the
first of January, April, July aud September.
Men who believe Vermont money should be kept in Vermont to foster Ver
mont industries, feeling assured that such loyalty to home interests will com
mand for the bank the patronaeo not only of those who love Vermont and have
her prosperity at heart. Out of those who believe that safety is always to be pre
ferred to larjje rates of interest, and desire that their money be invested at home
where they may see the security with their own eyes and peisonally know that
the bank is a painstaking, careful and conservative steward iu the investment
and management of the funds entrusted to its care.
LUTELY GUARANTEED. If not withdrawn it is compounded semi-annually
without any action on the part of the depositor.
