When the Ellad Old Giant Sm.on Vi Called Forth to A,M the Wicked of Gaza The Cl.ri.tlan Who Recreate. Holy-The Deadly "Good Time." ICopyrleht. lf,0S. by American Press Asso. elation. Washington, June 13. From an nn Ufnul BtaiKlpoint Dr. Talmago iu this chscourao diacussos aiansoinents nud ap plies tests by wbieh thoy may bo known as pood or had. Tho text is Judges xvi, "And it camo.to pass, when thoir hearts wero merry, that thoy said, Call for Bainsnu, that ho mayinako ns sport. And tibpy callerl fr Samson ont of tha prison house, and homado them sport." Thcrowero 3,000 peoplo assembled In tho templa of Diigon. Thoy 'had eomo to mako sport of eyeloss Samson. Thoy wore all ready for Mio entortainmont. Thoy brgnn to e'.ap and pound, impa tiout for tho amusement to begin, and thoy cried : "Fetch him ont I Fetch him out!" Yonder I seo tho blind old giant coming, led by tho hand of n child Into tho very midst of tho templo. At his first appearanco there goes up a shout of laughter and de.rkion. Tho blind old giant pretends he is tirod and wants to rest himself npilnst tho pillars of the house, so ho snys to tho lad who leads hiai, "Bring mo whoro tho main pillars are." Tho lad does so. Thoi tho Strong man puts his hands on ono of the pil lars, and, with tho mightiest push that mortal ever made, throws himself for ward until thowholo house comes down in thunderous crash, grinding the audi enco liko grapes in a wiuo press. "And so it camo to pass, when thoir hearts wero merry, that they said, Call for Samson, that ho may mako ns sport. And they called for Samson out of tho prison house, and ho madothem sport." In other words, there aro amusements that aro destructive and bring down dis aster mid death upon tho heads of thoso wiio practice them. While they laugh and cheer thoy die. Tho 3, 000 who per ished that day iu Gaza are nothing com pared with tho tens of thousands who have been destroyed, body, mind and soul, by bad amusements and by good amusements carried to excess. In my sermons you must have notieod that I have no sympathy with ecclcsias. tical f.traitjackcts, or with that wholo salo denunciation of nmusements to which many aro pledged. I believe the church of (tod has mado a tremendous mistako in trying to suppress tho sport fulness of yowth and drive out from men their lovo of amusement. If God over implanted anything in us, ho implantod tins desire. I3ut instead 6r providing for this demand of our naturo tho church of God lias for tho main part ignored it. As in a riot tho mayor plants a battery at tho end of tho street and has it fired off, so that everything is cut down that happens to stand in tho range, tho good as well its tho bad, so there aro men in tho church who plant their batteries of condemnation and firo away indiscrimi nately. Everything is oondemued. They talk as if they would liko to have our youth dress in blue uniform, liko tho children of an orphan asylum, and march down tho path of lifo to the tuno of tho dead march in "Saul." They hato a bluo sash, or a rosebud in the hair, or a tnssolcd gaiter, and think a man almost redy for the lunatic asy lum who utters a couundmm. Young Men's Christian associations of the country aro doing a glorious work. They have fine reading rooms, and nil the influences aro of the boet kind, end Rro now adding gymnasiums and bowling alleys, whoro, without any evil surroundings, our young men may got physical as well as spiritual im provement. Vv'e are dwindling away to a narrow chested, weak armed, fceblo voiced race, when God calls us to a work in which ho wants physical as well as spin tual athletes. I would to God that tho timo might soon como when in all our colleges and theological seminaries, as at Princeton, a gymna sium shall bo established. Wo spend seven years f if hard study in preparation for tlio--4jiinistry and come out with bronchitis and dyspepsia and liver com plaint, ftnd then crawl up into the pul pit, and tho people say, "Doesn't ho look heavenly!" because ho looks sickly. Let tho church of God direct rather than attempt, to suppress thodesirofor amusement. Tho best men that tho world ever knew have had their sports. William Wilberforco trundled hoop With his children. Martin Luther helped dress the Christmas tree. Ministers have pitched quoits, philanthropists havo gone n-skating, primo ministers havo played ball. Our communities aro filled with men and women who havo in their souls un measured resources for sportfulness and frolic. Show mo a man who never lin-bts r.p with sportfulness and has no sympathy with the recreations of oth ers, and 1 will show you a man who is a stumbling block to" tho kingdom of God. Such men are caricatures of roli gion. They lead young peoplo to think that a man is good in proportion as ho trroans and frowns nud looks sallow, and that tho height of a man's Chris tian stature is in proportion to the lent-th of his face. I would trade off 500 such men for ono bright faced, radiant Christian on whoso face aro tho words, "Kejoico evermore!" Every morning by his cheerful face ho preaches 50 ser mons. I will go further and say that I havo no confidence in a man who makes a religion of his gloomy looks That kind of a man l'yt''; badly. I would iidtwaut him foi tho treasurer of an orphan asy lnm. 1 bo or phans would suffer. 1 Among JO people whom I rece wed into tho church at one communion h was only one applicant ot whoso piety suspicious. Ho bad Ibo l.mges Itl y to tell, had scon the most vision an. gave, an experience so wonderful fiul tho other applicants were dis couraged. 1 was iKil st.riin.ed o y .tr after to learn that lie bad mu off vuth u'o funds of the bank vvith which be : .nUmected.

Go forth, II'lo, to Sta? laftil amusement I God means XZ to bo Wv. Eutwl.cn there arc so ?a , s urcos of innocent pleasure, why tamper with anything thai isMangcroui and polluting? Why stop our cars to a heaven full of songsters to listen to tho hiss of a dragon? Why turn back from tho mountain side, nil a-bloom with wild flowers and a-dash with tho uimblo tor rents, and with blistered foot attompt to climb ths hot sides of Cotopaxi? Now, nil opera houses, thoattirs, bowl ing alloys, skating rinks and all styles of amusemcut, good and bad, I put on trial today nnd judge of thorn by cer tain cardinal principles. First, you may Judgo of any amusomout by fts healthful result or by its baneful roao tiou. There nro people who soem mado up of hard facts. They aro a combina tion of multiplication tables and statis tics. If you show them an oxquisito pio ture, thoy will begin to discuss the pig ments involvod in tho coloring ; if you show them a beautiful rose, they will embntit it to a botanical analysis, which is only the post mortem examination of a flower. Thoy novor do anything nioro than feobly smile. There aro no great tides of fooling surging up from the dopth of their soul iu billow after bil low of rovcrberating laughter. They seem as if nature had built them by contract and mado a bungling job out of It. But, blessed bo God, thero aro people iu the world who have bright faoos and whoso lifo is a song, an an them, a pnean of victory. Even their troubles aro like tho vinos that crawl up tho sido of a great tower on the top of which tha sunlight sks and the soft airs of summer hold porpotual carnival. Thoy are tho peoplo you liko to havo como to yonr house ; they aro the peoplo I like to havo como to my house. Now It is these exhilaraut and sympathetic and warm hearted peoplo that aro most tomptod to pornicious amusements. In proportion as a ship is swift it wants a strong holmsman ; in prepnrtion as ft horso is gay it wants a strong driver, and theso peoplo of ex uberant naturo will do well to look at the reaction of all thoir amusements. If an amusement sends yon homo at night nervous so you cannot sleep, and you riso in the morning, not becauso you aro slept out, but beonuso your duty drgs you from your slumbers, you have been where, you ought not to havo been. There are amusements that send a man next day to his work bloodshot, yawning, stupid, nauseated and they are wrong kinds of amusements. Thero aro entertainments that givo a man dis gust withr the drudgery of lifo, with tools because they aro not swords, with working aprons becauso usy are not robes, with cattlo becauso they aro not infuriated bulls of tho arena. If any amusement sends you home longing for a lifo of romance and thrilling adven ture, lovb that takes poison and shoots itself, moonlight adventures and hair breadth escapes, yon may depend upon it that you aro tho sacrificed victim of 'AedLr-leasuro. Our recreations are intended to build us up, and if they pun us flown ns to our moral or as to our physical strength, you may como to the conclusion that they aro obnox ious. Still further, thoso nmvuijSlhis aro wrong which lead into expenditure be yond your means. Money-spent in recre ation is not thrown away. It is all folly for us to come from a placo of amuse ment feeling that wo havo wasted our money and time. You may ty it havo mado an investment worth tuore than the transaction that' yielded you $100 or $' 000. But how many properties he , j beefi Tiddled by costly anmso menCs? Tho tablo has been robbed to pay the club, ffho champagne has cheated tho ohildren's wardrobe. Tho carousing party has burned up tho boy's primer. The tablecloth of tho corner saloon is in debt to tho Wife's failed dress excursions, that in ft day nrako a finr around a whole month's wages; ladies whoso lifetime business it is to "go shopping" havo their counterpart in uneducated children, bankruptcies that shock tho money market and appall tho church and that send drunkenness staggering across tho richly figured car pet of tho mansion and dashing into tho mirror and drowning out tho carol of musio with tho whooping of bloated sons como home to break their old mother's heart. When men go into amusements that they cannot afford, they first borrow what they cannot earn, and then they steal what tbey cannot borrow. First they go into em barrassment and then into theft, and when a man gets as far on as that ho does not stop short of tho penitentiary. Thoro is not a prison in tho land whero thero aro not victims of unsaiietified nmusements. How often 1 havo had parents como to mo and ask mo to ge and beg their boy off from tho conse quence of crimes that he had committed against his employer ibo taking of funds out of the employer's till or the disarrangement of tho accounts. Why, he had salary enough to pay all lawful expenditure, bnt not enough salary to meet his sinful amusements. And again and again I have gone and implored for tho young man sometimes, alns, tho petition unavailing! How brightly tho path of unrestrain- amusoment opens! Tho young man says: "Now I am off for n good time. Never mind economy. I'll get money somehow. What a fine road! What a beautiful day for a ridel Crack tho whip, and over tho turnpike! Como, boys, fill high your glasses! Drink! Long life, health, plenty of rides Just liko this!" Hardworking men henr the clatter of tho hoofs and look un and sav: "Why,. I wonder where thoso fellows get their money from. Wo havo to toil and drudge. They do nothing." To these gay men lifo is a thrill and an ex citement. They stare at other peoplo and in turn aro stared at. Tho watch chain jingles. Tho cup foams. The cheeks flush. Tho eyes flash. The mid night hears their guffaw. Tbey swag ger. They jostle decent men off tile side walk. They take the namo of (tod in vain. They parody the hymn they learned at their mother's knee, and to all pictures of coming disaster they cry out, "Who cares!"' and to the connsel of some Christian friend, "Who are you?" Passing along tho street somo night you hear a shriek in a grogshop, tho rattlo of the watchman's club, tho rush of tho police. What is tho matter now? Oh, this reckless young man lias been killed iu a grogshop tight. Carry him homo to his father's house. Parents will come down and wash his wounds and close his eyes in death. They for KivG him all he ever did, though ho can not in silence ask it. Tho prodigal has got homo at last. Mother will go to her littlo garden and get tho sweetest flow tsrs and twist them into a chaplet for the silent heart of tho wayward boy and push buck from tho bloated brow tho long locks that wero oneo her pride. And the air will bo rent with tho fa- my son, died my for poor son; would God I had thee, oli, my son, my son!" You may judge of amusements by their effect upon physical health. Tho need of many good peoplo is physical recuperation. Thero are Christian men who write hard things against their im mortal souls when there is nothing tho matter with them but an incompetent liver. There aro Christian people who seem to think that it is a good sign to bo poorly, and because Richard Baxter and Robert Hall were invalids they think that by the same sickness thoy may como to tho same grandeur of olxir aotor. I want to tell Christian peoplo that OoA will bold you roi;ponsiilo for your invalidism if it fs yoHr own fault uud when through right cxerMso and prudence you might) be athlotia and well. Tho effoet of the body upon the (ronl you acknowledge. Put a man of mild disposition upon tho animal diet of which the Indian partakes, and in a littlo whilo his blood will change its chetnical proportions. It will become liko unto the blood of tho lion or tho tiger or tho bear, whilo his disposition will ehango and beoomo fierco, cruel and unreleuUng. The body has a pow erful effect upon tho stml. Thoro aro peoplo whoso idoas of hcavon aro all shut out with clouds of tobacco Emoko. Thero aro people who daro to shatter tho physical vase in which God put tho jewel of eternity. Thero are men with great hearts and intellects iu bodies worn out by their own neglects. Mag nificent machinery capablo of propelling a great Etruria across tho Atlantic, yet fastened in a rickety North river pro peller. Physical development which merely shows itself in a fabulous lift ing or in perilous ropo walking or in puf-ilistio encounter excites only our contempt, but wo oonfess to great ad miration for tho man who has a great Ko.nl iu an athletic body, every nervo, mu.-iolo anil bone of which is consecrated to right uses. Oh, it seems to mo out rageous that men through neglect should allow their physical health to go duw-u beyond repair, spending tho rest of their life not in somo great cnterpriso for Go;l and tho world, but in studying what is t bo best thing to tnko for dys pepsia. A ship which ought with all sails set and every man at his post to be carrying a rich cargo for eternity, em ploying all its men in stopping up leak ;r;;e.s. When you may through somo of the popular and healthful recreations of our timn work off your spleen and your querultmtiiicss and 0110-half of your physical and mental ailments, do not turn your back from such a grand med icament. Agi'in, judge of tho places of amuse ment by tho companionship into which they put you. If yojj belong to an or ganization where you havo to associate with tho intemperate, with tho un cltitn, with tho ubandoned, however wwr ui-v. may uo uresseu, 111 me name of God quit it. They will aospiVix'ra'.T. nature. Juey will undermino your moral character. Thoy will drop you when you aro destroyed. They will not give 0110 cent to s-upport your children when you aro dead. They will weep not ono tear at yoxir burial. Thoy will chucklo over your damnation. But tho day comes when the men who have ex erted evil influence upon their fellows will ba brought to judgment Scene, the last day. fc.tago, tho rocking earth. En ter dukes, lords, kings, beggars, clowns. No sword. No tinsel. No crown. For footlights, tho kindling flames of a worliL. For orchestra, the trumpets that wako tho dead. For gallury, tho clouds filled with angel spectators. For applause, the clapping floods of tho sea. Fur curtains, tho heavens rolled togeth er as a scroll. For tragedy, the doom of tho destroyed. For farca, the effort to snrve tho world and God nt the snrse- timo. For tho lat so no of the fifth act, the tramp of nations across the stage somo to" tho right, otbors to the left. Again, any amusement that gives you a distaste for domestic lifo is bad. How many bright domestic circles havo been broken up by sinful amusements? Tho father went oft, the mother Went olf, tho child went off. Thero are all around us tho fragments of blasted households. Oh, if you have wandered away, I would like to charm you back by tho sound of that one word, "hoiwo!" Do you not, know that you have but little 111010 timo to givo to domestic welfare? Do you not see, father, that your chil dren are soon to go ont into tho world and all tho influence for good you nro to havo over them you must have now? Death will break in on your conjugal relations, anil alas if you havo to stand over tho grave of ono who perished from your neglect! I saw a wayward husband standing at the deathbed of his Christian wife, and I saw her point to a ring on her finger and heard her say to ker husband, "Do you see that ring?" Ho replied, "Yes, I seo it, "Well," said she, "do you remember who put it thoro?" "Yes," start ho, "I put it there." And all tho past seemed to rush upon him. By tho memory of that day, when in tho pres ence of men and angels you promised to be faithful in joy and sorrow and iu, sickncs.s and ii health; by the memory of thoso pleasant hours when you sat to gether iu your new house talking of a bright future; by thocradlo and the ex cited hour when ono lifo was spared and mother given ; by that sickbed, when tho little ono lifted up tho hands and called for help and you knew ho must dio, and hoput 0110 arm around each of your necks and brought you very nonr together in that dying kiss; by tho lit tlo grave in tho cemetery that you never thing of without a rush of tears; by tho family Bible, whero in its stories of heavenly love is tho brief butoxpress ivo record of births ami deaths ; lit)' the neglects of tho past and by tha agonies ot the future; by a judgment day when husbands and wives, parentH and chil dren, in ininfortal groups will stand to lio caught up in shining array or to shrink down into darkness by all that, I Ik g yon to give to homo your best til'-' lections. I look in your eyes today, and I ask you tho question that Gohani ask ed of the Sbnnammite: "Is it well with thee? If it well with thy husband? Is it well with thy child?" God grant that it may bo everlastingly well ! Let 1110 say to all young men .your stylo of amusement will decide your eternal destiny. Ono night I saw a young man at a street corner evidently doubting as to which diroction ho had bettor take. Ho had his hat lifted high enough so you could seo lie had an in telligent forehead. Ho had a stout chest; he had a robust development. Splendid young man. Cultured young Juan. Honored young man. Why did lift stop ihoro whilo so liirmy were going up and down? The fact is that every tier's cry "Oh, my sob man has a good angel and a bad an gol contending for tho mastery of his spirit. And thero was a good angel and a had ongql strugglim; with that young man's soul at the corner of tho BU'OOt. "Como with wo," said tho good an gel, "I will tako you homo. I will spread my wing over your pathway. I will lovingly escort you all through lifo. I will bless every cup you drink out of, every couch you rest on, every doorway you enter. I will consecrate your tours when yon weep, your sweat when you toil, and at tho last I will baud over your gravo into tho band of tho bright angel of a Christian resur rection. In answer to your father's pe tition and your mother's prayer I havo boon seut'of tho Lord out of heaven to be your guardian spirit. Como with mo, " said tho good angel in a voico of unearthly symphony. It was musio liko that which drops from a lute of heaven when a seraph breathes on it. "No, no, "said tho bad angel, "como with mo. I havo something better to offer. Tho wines I pour aro from chalices of bewitching carousal. Tho danco I lead is over floor tessellated with unrestrain ed indulgences. Thero is no God to frown on tho temples of dn whero I worship. Tho skies tiro Italian. Tho paths I tread aro through meadows duisiod and primrosed. Como with nro." Tho young man hesitated at a timo when hesitation was ruin, and tho bad angel smote tho good angel until i5 departed, spreading wings through the starlight upward and away, until a door flashed open in tho sky and forever tho wings vanished. That was tho turn ing point in that J'oung man's history, for, tho good lurgol flown, ho hesitated no longer, but started on a pathway which is beautiful at tho opening, but blasted at tho last. The bad angel, leading tho way, opened gato after gate, and ut each gate tho road bccanio rougher nnd the sky more lurid, and, what ran peculiar, a tho gato shimmed shut it came to with a jar that indicated that if would never open. Passed each portal, thero was a grinding locks and a shoving of bolts, and tho scenery on either sklo tho road chnnged from gardens to deserts, nud tho Juno air became a cutting De cember. blast, and tho bright wings of the bad angel turned to sack-cloth, and the eyes of lighf bcctuuo hollow with hopeless grief, and tho fountains, that at tho stitrt had tossed wine, poured forth bubbling tears ami foaming blood, and on tho right side of the road thero was a serpent nnd tho man said to tho bad angel, "Wht is tlr.tt serpent' and tho answer wis, "That is the serpent of stinging remorse. " On tho left sido of tho road thero was a lion, and tho man asked tho bad angel, "What is that lion?" and tho ansnver was, "That is tho lion of all devouring despair." A vulturo flow through tho sky, and tho man asked tho bad angel, "What is that vulture?" and the answer was, "That 'i 'bo vulturo wilting, for tho carcasses of the Mam." And then the man began to try to pull on 01 nii,, .o folds of something that had wound him round and round, and he raid (p the bad angel, "What is it that twists 'main this awful convolution?" and tho an swer was. " That is tho worm that never flies, "-and then the man said to tho bail migel: "What does all this mean? I trusted in what you said at tho comer of tho street that niht. I trusted it nil, nud why havo you thus deceived mc?" Then the last deception fell off tho charmer, and it said: "I was rent forth from tho pit to destpoy ycv.r soul. I watched my chance for m.-.ry a Ion? year. When you bef.il ated vital night on tho street, I gained my triumph. Now ymrtfro hero. Iia, ha! Yon arcbere. Come, now, let us fill thoso two cimlises of firo nnd drink together to darkness nnd woe and dsnth. Hail, hail!" Oh, young ninn, will - tho good augcl sent forth by Christ or the bad nirgcl scut forth by sin get tho victory over your soul? Their wings are interlocked this moment above you, eontmdingjlur your destiny, as above tho Apennines eagle imd condor fit-Tit miilsky. This hour may decide your destiny. Otcd help you.
