6 );ELSllAZZAirS FEAST REV. DR. TALMAGE PREACHES ON THE HANDWRITING ON THE WALL Umoiiii From Iianiui of Pin-The Sud denneM of God' Judgments A Word of Warn 1 11c An Eclm of the Text. Washington, Nov. 10. Since bis coming lo Washington Dr. Talmago's pulpit experience hns been a remarkable cno. Not only lias tho dmrch iu which he preaches been filled, but the, audiences have overflowed into tho adjoining streets to an extent that has rendered them impassable. Similar scenes were enacted at today's services, when the preacher took for his subject, "Hand writing on the Wall," the text chosen being Daniel v, 3 "In that night was Bekhazzar, the king of the Chaldeans, slain." Night was about to come down on Babylon. Tho shadows of her 250 tow ers began to lengthen. The Euphrates rolled on, touched by the fiery splendors of tho setting nun, and gates of brass, burnished and glittering, opened and shut like doors of llaine. The hanging gardens of Babylon, wet with the heavy dew, began to pour from starlit flowers and dripping leaf a fragrance for many miles around. Tho streets and squares were lighted for dance and frolic and promenade-. Tho theaters and galleries of art invited tho wealth and pomp and grandeur of tho city to rare cutertaiu-uH-iits. f'c( in- f x i tit and wassail were mingled in every street, and godless mirth ;:i:d utragcons excess and splen did wickedness caino to tho king's palace to do their mi;;!;' i' st deeds cf darkness.

Wine brought from tho royal r.iits, foam ing in tho decanters and bubbling in tho chalices. Tufts of cassia and frankin cense waftii g I iieir sweetness from wall and table. Gorgeous banners unfolding jn the breeze that came through the open window, bewitched with the perfumes of hanging gardens. Fountains rising up from inclosures of ivory, in jets of crys tal, to fall in clattering rain of diamonds and pearls. Gtatr.esof mighty men look ing down from niches in the wall upon crowns and shields brought from sub dued empires. Idols of wonderful work standing on pedestals of precious stones. Embroideries stooping about tho win dows and wrapping pillars of cedar and drifting on floor inlaid with ivory and agate. Mnric, mingling the thrum of harps, nnd tho dash of cymbals, aud the blast of trumpets in one wave of trans port that went rippling along tho wall aud breathing among tho garlands and pouring down the coiridors, and thrill ing the son!:) of a thousand banqueters. The signal is given, and tho lords and ladies, tho mighty nun and women of tho land, come around the table. Pour out tho wine. Let foam and bubble kiss t lis rim! Hoist everyone his cup and drink to tho sentiment, "O King Bcl shazar, live forever !" Bestarred head band aud careanetof royal Leauty gleam to tho uplifted chalices, as again, and again, and again they are emptied. Away with care from the palace! Tear royal dignity to tatters! Pour out more wine ! Gio us more light, wilder music, sweeter porfiruy ! Lord shouts to lord, captain ogle.-j to captain. Cobkts clash ; decanters rattle. There como iu tho ob scene song, and the drunken hiccough, and tho slavering lip, and the guffaw of idiot io laughter, bursting from tho lips of princes, flushed, reeling bloodshot, while mingling with it all I hear, "Huzza, l:nz;:a, for great Belshazzar!" Heers on the Wall. What is that on tho plastering of the wall? Is it a spiii! ? Is it a phantom? Is it God? Tho music s:t"; s. The goblets fall from the, i:erclo:- lasp. There isa thrill. Theie. is a start, 'ihi ro is a thou sand voiced f l:i ii k of horror. Let Daniel bo brought in to rend that writing, lie comes in. Ueru.ds it, "Weighed iu tho balance and found wanting." Meanwhile tho lb des, who for two years had ! , ..u,', s-'Ugo to that city, tool; advantage of that carousal and came in. hear tho feet of the conquer ors on the pal.ivo stairs. J.lassacvo, liislios iu with u thousand gleaming knives. Death bnrshs upon the scene, and I shut the door of Oi-.a banqueting hall, fur 1 do nut want to look. There is nothing (hero but torn banner;-', and broken Wreaths, ari l tvi sins h of upset tankard.', Hid tho blood i f i-'';i.rui woimn, and flic kicked in: 1 tumbled carcass of u :lead king. Fir "in that night was Uolshaxzai', tho kit g of the Chaldean", lain." I go on u ::) .mi.v le.voi- " 'bis. 1 le.uu thai when GuJ writes any thing on the wall a man bad better read it as it is. Daniel did not misinterpret or modify the handwriting on the wall It is all foolishness to expect a minister of the gospel to preach always things tht the people like or the people choose Young men of Washington, what shal I preach to yon tonight? Shall I tell you of the dignity of human nature.' snail I tell yon of the wonders that our race has accomplished? "Oh, no," you say. "Tell nie the message that came from God." I will. If there is any handwrit ing on the wall, it is this Icsfou : "Re pent! Accept of Christ and be saved!" I might ti lk of a great many other t'.iinas. but that is tho message, and so I declare it. Jesus nover flattered those to whom he preached. He said to those who did wrung nnd who were offensive in his sight: "Ye generation of vipers! Ye whited sepulchers ! now can ye es cape the damnation of hell!" Paul the apostlo preachel before a man who wa? not ready to hear him preach. What sab ject did he take? Did he say, "Oh, you are a good man, a very fine man, a very nobleman?" No. Ho preached of right eousness to a man who was tinright eous, of temperanco to a man who was a victim of bad appetites, of .the judgment to como to a man who was unfit for it. So we must always declaio the message that happens to come to us. Daniel must read it as it is. A minister preached beforo James I of England, who was James VI of Scotland. What subject did ho take? Tho king was noted all over the world for ing unsettled and wavering in his ideas. What did the minister preach about to this man who was .Tames I cf England and James VI of Scotland? Ho took for his text James i, 0: "IIo that wavereth is liko a wavo of the sea driven with the wind and tossed." Hugh Latimer offended the kii.g by a seimon he preached, and tho king said, "Hugh Latimer, come and apologize." "I will, " said Hugh Latimer. So the day was appointed, and the king's chapel was full of lords and dukes and tho mighty men and women of tho country, for Hugh Latimer was to apologize. Ho began his sermon by saying: "Hugh Latimer, bethink thee ! Thou art in the presence of thiuo earthly king, who can destroy thy body. But bethink thee, Hugh Latimer, that thou art in the presence of the king of heaven and earth, who can destroy both body and soul in hell fire. " Then he preached with appalling directness at the king's crimes. A Ghastly Ranquct. Another lerscn that comes to us to night thero is a great diff'erei:ce bo- ween the opening of the banquet of sin and its close. Young man, if yen had locked in r.prn tho l anqi-rt i;i the, first few hours, y u would havo wished you had lei ii invited thero and could sit at the feast. "Oh, tho grandeur of Eel shazzar's feast !" you would have said, but you look in at tho close of tho ban quet and your blood curdles with hor ror. The king cf terrors has thero a ghastlier banquet. Human blood is the wine nnd dying groans are tlio music. Sin bus made itself a king in the earth. It has crowned itrelf. It bss spread a btni'inut. It invites all the world to como to it. It lnH huiig iu its banquet ing hall tlio spoils cf all kingdoms and tho banners cf all nations. It has gath ered from all music. It has strewn from its wealth tho tables and floors and are lies. And yet how often is that ban quet broken up and how horrible is its end ! Ever and anon thero is a handwrit ing on tho wall. A king falls. A great culprit is arrested. Tho knees of wicked ness knock together. God's judgment, like an armed best, brakes in upon the banquet, cud that night is Belshazzar, tho king of tho Chaldeans, slain. Hero if) a young man who says: "I cannot see why they make such a fuss about the intoxicating cup. Why, it is exhilarating! It makes mo feel well. I can talk better, think better, feel better. I cannot seo why peoplo have such a prejudice against it. " A few years pass on, and he wakes up nnd finds himself in tho clutches of an evil habit which ho tries to break, but cannot, and ho cries out, "O Lend God, helpnie!" It seems as though God would not hear his prayer, and in an agony of body and soul he cries out, "It bitelh liko a ser pent, and it stingcth liko an adder." How bright it was at tho start! How black it was at tho last ! Here is a man w ho begins to read loose novels. "They are so charming," ho says. "I will go out and see for my self whether all theso things are 0. " Ho opens tho gate of a sinful life. IIo goes in. A sinful sprito meets hiruwith her wand. She waves her wand, and it isall enchantment. Why, it seems as if tho angels of God had poured out vials of perfume in tho atmosphere. As ho walks on ho finds the hills becoming moro radiant with foliago and tho ravines moro resonant with tho falling water. Oh, what a charming landscapo ho sees! But that sinful sprite, with lur wand, meets him again, but now she re verses the wand, aud all the enchant ment is gone. Tlio cup is full cf poison. The fruit turns to ashes. All tho leaves of tho bower are forked tongues of hiss ing serpents. Tho flowing fountains fall back in a dead pool slemehful with cor rupt ion. Tho luring songs become curses and screams of demoniac laughter. Lost spirits gather about him and feel for his heart and beckon him on with "Hail brother! Hail, blasted spirit, hail!" He tries to get out. He comes to tho front doeirwbero ho entered and tries to push it back, but (lie door tuinii again: t him, and iu (1 jar of that f' -1 . ". c ho hears these words, "This night is Belsliazzai-, Die king of the Chaldeans, slain." Sin may open bright i.s tho morning. It ends daik as tho night! An I iHXpnlcil Ylnltor. I learn further from this subject that death sometimes breaks in upon a ban fpiet. Why did lie not go down to t.Lo prisons in Babylon? There wen? j ;,i , there that would liko to have die,:. 1 suppose thero were men and women in tortnre in that city who would have welcomed death, but lie comes to tho palace, and just at the time when the io is o.t.hing to tl.o t:p;o;i j itch, Ueiuli brenVji in at the banquet. Wo have often seen the same thing illustrated. Here is a young man just come from college. He is kind. He is loving. He is enthusiastic. He is eloquent. By one spring he may bound to heights toward which many men have been struggling for years. A profession opens before him. He is established in the law. His friends cheer him. Eminent men en courage him. After awhilo you may see him standing- in the American senate or moving a popular assemblage by his elo quence, as trees are moved in a whirl wind. Some night he retires early. A fever is on him. Delirium, like a reek less charioteer, seizes tho reins of his intellect. Father and mother stand by anel seo the tides of his life going out to the great ocean. The banquet is coming to an end. Tho lights of thought and mirth and eloquence are being extin guished. The garlands are snatched from the trow. The vision is gone. Death at the banquet t We saw tho same thing on a larger scale illustrated in our civil war. Our whole nation had been sitting at a na tional banquet north, south, east and west. What grain was there but we grew it on our hills? What invention was thero but our rivers must turn tho new wheel and rattle the strango shut tle? What warm furs but our traders must bring them from tho arctic? What fish but our nets must sweep them for the markets? What musio but it must sing in our halls? What eloquence but it must speak iu our senates? Ho, to tho national banepiet, reaching frcm moun tain to mountain and from eca to sea! To prepare that banquet, the shcepfolds and tho aviaries of tho country sent their best treasures. The orchards piled upon tho tablo their sweet fruits. Tlio presses burst out with new wines. To sit at that tabic came the yeomanry of New Hamp shire i. ml tho lumbermen cf Maine, aud tho Carolinian fremi tho rice plantation, and tho western emigrant from tho pines cf Oregon, and we were all broth ers brothers at a banquet. Suddenly tho feast cnelcd. What meant those mounds thrown up at Chickamauga, Shiloh, Altanta, Gettysburg, South Mountain? What meant those golden grainfields turned into a pasturing ground for cavalry horses? What meant tho cornfields gullied with tho wheels of tho heavy supply train? Why those rivers of tears those lakes cf blood? Goel was angry ! Justice must como, A handwriting on tho wall! The nation had been weighed and found wanting. Darkness! Darkness! Woo to the north ! Wee to the south ! Woe to tho cast ! Woo to tho WCft ! Death at tho banquet. Suro and Sudden. I havo cl:o to learn from tho Fcbji et that the destruction of ti e vicious ai,d of thof-jo who despise God will bo very sudden. The wave of mirth had dashed to tho highest point when tho invadi ig army broko 1 hrough. It was unexpecte d. Suddenly, almost always, comes tho doom of those who despise God and defy tho laws of men. How was it at tho deluge.' Lio you suppose it came tni'ov.''i along northeast storm, so that pe:e for days befe-re were snrt it -was con No. I nuppose the morning vn thnt cammeKB brooded oil tlmt bennty Kilt enthroned when suddenly tho heavens tho mountains sank like uucliois tho sea that dashed clear over tho AuC and tho Himalayas.

Clap the cymbals and blow tho trumpets of victory ! After them ! Wo will catch them yet, and they shall be destroyed. But the walls begin to tremble I They rock ! They fall ! Tho rushing waters!

Ono half hour be-fore they could not have believed it. Destroyed, and without remedy. I am just setting forth a fact, which yon havo noticed as well as I. Ananias comes to the apeistle. Tho apostlo says, "Did yon sell tho laud for so much?" He says, "Ye-s." It was a lie. Dead, as quick as that ! Sapphira, his wife, con.es in. "Did you soil the land for so much?" "Yes." It was n lie, and quie-k as tint sho was dead! God's judgments tiro upon those who despiso him and defy him. They como suddenly. Words of Warning. The destroying angel went through Egpyt. Do you snpposo that any of (ho peoplo know that ho was coming? Did they hear tho flap of his great wing? No! No! Sueldenly, unexpectedly, ho came. Skilled sportsmen do not like toshoot a bird standing ou a sprig near by. If they aro skilled, they pride, themselves ou taking it on tho wing, and they wait till it starts. Death is an old sportsman and ho loves to tako men flying under tho very suu. Ho loves to tako them ou (bowing. Oh, fleo to God this night! If there bo ono in this presence who has wandered far away from Christ, though ho may not havo heard tho call of tho gospel for many u year, I invito him now to como and bo saved. I'lue from thy t-iu! Fleo to the stronghold of gos pel ! Now is tho accepted tiino. Now is the day ei salvation. Good night, my young friends; may yon have rosy sleep, guarded by him who nover slumbers I May you awake iu tho morning strong and well! But, oh, art thou a de-spise r of God?

Sir Frederic Leigbtcu lias confided to a contributor to The Young Woman the Gtcry of how he came to to r.n artist. In Irs youth painting was not consider ed ret peetahle, and Sir Frederic's par ents shared, iu ecmo degree, in that strange prejudice, but during a sojourn in Florence, when ho was about 11 years of age, tlin lad prevailed on his father to rutin it tie question of his futnro pro fession to Mr. Hiram Powers, tho cele brated Aniciican rculptor. He said to Mr. Lcightc.u, "Let n;e havo a portfolio ti yot-r sou's di savings, aud if you w ill call on mo at the ei.el of a week I will give you an opinion of tliciu."
