REV. DR. TALMAGE PREACHES ON THE
HANDWRITING ON THE WALL

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.

MraeeiTwi,?i,7fca; woro
threshed from fontntsof district lands.
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,

came in. hear tho feet of the conquer

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

Thero can bo no danger. Forward, great

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

Oh, that my Lord Jesus would now
riako himself so attractive to yeiur souls
that yon cannot tesist him, and if you
have nev.r prayed before or have not

down at your inother's knee, then that

A liorn Artist.
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

give you an opinion of tliciu."
