TALMAGE'S SUNDAY SERMON DE LIVERED AT DETROIT. 1 Comparer tlio Children of Israel Cross ing the Jordan With Wnslilngton Cross ing the Delaware and Xerxes Crossing tlio llolle.iiont lessons of tha Text. DrmtoiT, Mnrch 12.-Rov. Dr. Tnl inrtge, who is now visiting this city, pi-cu'lutl today to u largo ahJ intensely interested audionco in tho Fort Street Presbyterian-church, of which Rov. Dr. Uadcliffo ia pastor, on tho crossing of tho Jordan by tlio childron of Israel, tho 'text being front Joshua,iii, 17, "And tho priests that bare tho ark of the covenant of tho Lord stood finn on dry ground in tho midst of the Jordan, and all tho Is raelites passed over on dry ground( until all the peoplo were passed clean over Jor dan." Washington crossed tho Dolawaro when crossing was pronounced impos sible, but ho did, it by boat. Xerxes crossed tho Hellespont with 2,000,000 men, but ho did it by bridge. The Isra elites crossed tho Red sea, but tho sumo orchestra that celebrated tho deliverance of tho one army sounded tho Btrangula- .tion of tho other. This Jordanio passago differs from nil. There was no sacrifice of human life not so much as the loss of a linchpin Tho vanguard of tho host, made up of priests, advanced until they put their foot at tho brim of tho river, when muiibu lately theetreets of Jerusa lem wore no more dry than'tholbed of that river. It was as if all tho water had been drawn off, and-then the dampness had been soaked up with a sponge, and then by a towel tho road had been wiped dry. Yondor goes a great army of Israelites tho hosts in uniformjjFollowingthem the wives, tho children? tho flocks, the herds. The peoplo look up at the crys talline wall of the Jordan as they pas and think what an awful disaster would come to them if beforo they got to the opposite bank of tbat Ajalon wall that wall should fall on them. And the thought makes tho mothers hug their children closo to their hearts as they swiften their pace. Quick, now I Get them all up on tho banks tho armed warriors, tho wives and children, flocks and herds, und lot this wonderful Jor danic passago bo completed forever. Sitting on the shelved limestono, 1 look off upon that Jordan whero Joshua crossed under tho triumphal arch of the rainbow woven out of tho spray; tho river which afterward became tho baptistry whero Christ was eprinkled or plungddj tho river whero the ax tho borrowed ax miraculously Bwam at the prophel'a order; the river illustrious in the history of tho world for heroio faith and omnip otent deliverance and typical of scenes yet to transpire in your life and mine scenes enough to make us, from the sole of tho foot to tho crown of tho head, tin glo with infinite gladness. Standing on tho scone of that affright ed, fugitive river Jordan, I learn for my solf and for you, first, that obstacles, when they are touched, vanish. Tho text says that when these priests came down and ouched tho water tho edge of the water with their feet the wator parted. Thoy did not wado in chin deep or waist doep or lmeo deep or anklo deep, but as soon as their feet touched tho water it vanished. And it makes mo think thai almost all the obstacles of life need only be approached in order to be conquered. Difficulties but touched vanish. It is tht trouble, tho difficulty, tho obstacle far in the distance, that seems bo hugo and tre mendous. Tho apostles Paul and John seemed to dislike cross dogs, for the apostle Paul tells us in Philippians, "Bowaroof dogs,'' and John Eeoms to shut thogato of heav en against all tho canino species when he says, "Without aro dogs." But I have been told that when thoso animals are furious, if thoy come at you, if you will keep your eye on them and advance up on them thoy will rotreat. Whether that bo so or not I cannot tell, but I do know that tho vast majority of the mis fortunes and trials and disasters of youi life that hounds your steps, if you can only get your eye on them, and keep your eye on thom, and advance upon them, and cry, "Begono," thoy will slink and cower. A BEAUTIFUL TRADITION. There is a beautiful tradition among tho American Indians that Manitou was traveling in tho invisible world, and one day ho catno to a barrier of brambles and sharp thorns, wldch forbade his going on, and there was a wild beast glaring at him from tho tldcket, but as ho deter mined to go on his way ho did pursue it, and thoso brambles were found to bo only phantoms, and that beast was found to bo a powerless ghost, and tho impassable river that forbade him rushing to em brace the Yaratilda proved to bo only a phantom river. Well, my friends, the fact is there are a great many things that look terrible across our pathway, which, when wo ad vance upon them, are only tho phan toms, only tho apparitions, only tho do lusions of life. Difficulties touched are conquered. Put your feet into tho brim of tho water, and Jordan retreats. You somo times 6eo a great duty to perform. It is a very disagreeable dnty. You say, "I can't go through it; I haven't the courngo, I haven't tho intelligence, to go through it," Advance upon it, Jordan will vanish. I always sigh before I begin to preach at the greatness of tho undertaking, but aa soon as 1 start it becomes to me an exhilaration. And any duty undertaken with a confident spirit becomes a pleas ure, and tho higher tho duty the higher tho pleasure Difficulties touched aro conquered. There aro a great many peo plo who are afraid of death In tho future. Good John Livingston once, on a sloop coining from Elizabethport to New York, was dreadfully frightened because he thought ho was going to W drowned as a sudden gust came np. People were surprised at him. If any.raan in all tho world was ready to die, It was good John Livingston. So there aro now a grent many good people who ehuddsr In passing a grave-1 .yard, and Uiey luruiy umo tuiuk oi Canaan bocanso of tho Jordan that in tervenes. Hut ouco they nro down on n lick bed, then all their fears nro gone tho waters of death dashing on tho beach aro liko tho mellow voice of ocean shells they smell of tho blossoms of tho trco of life. Tho music of tho heavenly choirs comes stealing over tho waters, and to cross now is only a pleasant sail. How long tho boat is comingl Como, Lord Jesus, como quickly. Cliribt tho Priest advanced nhead, and tho dying Christian goes over dry shod on coral beds and Dowers of heaven nnd paths ol pearl Oh, could no mako our doubts rctnoe Thcso gloomy doubts that rise And lew tho Canaan that we love With unboclouded eyes! Conld we but climb where Moses stood And viow the lamlscapo o'er. Not Jordan's stream nor doath's told flood Could fright us from the shore Again, this Jordanic passage teaches mo tho completeness of everything that God does. When God put an invisible dam across Jordan, nnd it wns halted, it would havo been natural, you would havo supposed, for tho water to havo overflowed tho region all around about, and that groat devastation would havo taken place, but when God put the dam in front of the river he put a dam on the other side of tho river, so that, according to tho text, tho water halted and reared and stood thero and not' overflowing tho surrounding country. Oh, tho complete ness of everything thai; God doesl Ono would havo thought that, if tho waters of Jordan had dropped until they wore only two or throe feet deep, the Is raelites might havo marched through ii and haVe come up on the other" bank with their clothes saturated and their garments like thoso of men coming ashoro from shipwreck, and that would havo been as wonderful a deliverance, but God does something better than that. When tho priests' feet touched the waters of Jordan and they were drawn off, they might have thought there would have been a bed of mud and slimo through which tho army should pass. Draw off tho waters of tho Hudson or the Ohio, and thero would be a good many days, and perhaps many woeks, beforo tho sediment would dry up, and yet hero in an instant, immediately, God provides a path through the depths of Jordan. It is so dry tho passengere do not even got their foet damp. Oh, tho completeness of everything that God doesl Docs he make a universe? It is a perfect clock, running evor since it was wound up, tho fixed stars tho pivots, the constellations tho mtermovlng wheels, and ponderous laws tho weights and mighty swinging pendulum, tho stars in tho great domo of night striking tho mid night, and tho sun, with brazen tongue, tolling the hour of noon. Tho wildest comet has a chain of law that it cannot break. Tho thistle down flying before tho schoolboy's breath is controlled by the same law that controls thosunand the planets. Tho rosebush in your window is governed by tho same principle that governs tho tree of the universo on which tho stars aro ripening frnits, and on which God will one day put his hand and shake down tho fruit a perfect universe. No astronomy has ever proposed an amendment. A COMPLETE BIBLE. Ii God makes a Bible, it is a complete Bible. Standing amid tho dreadful and delightful truths, you seem to be in tho midst of an orchestra whero tho wailings over sins, and the rejoicings over pardon, and tho martial strains of victory mako the chorus like an anthem of eternity. This book seems to you tho ocean of truth, on every wavo of which Christ walks sometimes in the darkness of prophecy, again in tho splendors with which ho walks on Galileo. In this book apostlo answers to prophet, Paul to Isa iah, Revelation to Genesis glorious light, turning midnight sorrow into tho midnoon joy, dispersing every fog, hush ing every tempest. Take this book; it la tho kiss of God on the soul of lost man. Perfect Bible, complete Biblel No man has ever proposed any improvement. God provided a Saviour. He Is a com plete Saviour God-man divinity and humanity united in the samo person. He Bet up tho starry pillars of tho uni verse and tho towers of light. He plant ed the cedars and the heavenly Lebanon. He struck out of tho rock tho rivers of life, singing under tho trees, Binging un der tho thrones. Ho quarried the sar donyx and crystal and tho topaz of tho heavenly wall. Ho put down the jasper for tho foundation and heaped up the amethyst for tho capital and swung the 12 gates which are 12 pearls. In ono in stant he thought out a universe, and yet he becamo a child crying for his mother, feeling along tho Bides of the manger, learning to walk. Omnipotence sheathed in tho muscle and flesh of a child's arm; omniscience strung in tho optio nervo of a child's oye; infinite lovo beating in a child's heart; a great God appearing in tho form of a child 1 year old, 6 years old, 15 years old. While all tho heavens were as cribing to him glory and honor and power on earth, men said, "Who is this fellow?' While all the heavenly hosts, with foldod wing about their faces, bowed down beforo him crying "Holy, holy I" on earth, they denounced him as a blasphemer and a sot. Rocked in a boat on Gonnesaret, and yet ho it is tbat un dirked tho lightning from tho storm cloud and dismasted Lebanon of iU for ests and holds the five oceans on tho tip of his finger as tho leaf holds tho rain drop. Oh, tho completo Saviour, rubbing Ids hand over the place whero wo havo tho pain, yet tho stars of heaven the adorn ing gems of hia right hand. Holding ns in Ids arms when wo take our last view of our dead. Sitting down with us on the tombstone, and while we plant roses there he planting consolation in our heart, every chapter a stalk, every verso a stem, every word a rose. A complete Saviour, a completo Biblo, a complete universe, a complete Jordanic passago. Everything that God does U complete. OBSTACLES TO OVERCOUE. Again, I leans from thto Jordanio pas sage that between ns and every Canaan of success and prosperity there is a river that must be pawed. "Ofe, bow lVotud like seme (hose grapeao oilur j sidol" said eoaio of tho Israelites to Joshua. "Well," says Joshua, "if you want tho grapes, why don't you cross over and get thorn?" There is a river of diUlcnlty between ns and every thing that is worth having. That which costs noth ing ii worth nothing. God didn't intend this world for nn easy parlor, through which wo nro to bo drawn in a rocking chair, but wo aro to work our pabsago, climb masts, fight battles, scalo mountains and ford rivers. God makes everything valuable difficult to got at, for tho samo reason that ho put tho gold Aovni in tho mino nnd tho pearl cloar down in tho sea to make us dig and divo for them. Wo acknowledge this principle in worldly things; oh, that we woro only wiso enpugh to acknowl edge it in religious things! You havo scores of illustrations undor your own observation whero men havo had tho hardest lot and been trodden under foot, and yet after awhile had it easy. Now their homes blossom and bloom with picturos, and carpots that mado foreign looms laugh now embrace their foot; tho summer winds lift the tapestry about tho 'window gorgeous enough for a Tnrkish sultan; impatient steeds paw and neigh at tho door, their carriages moving through tho sea of Now York life a very wave of splendor. Who Is it? Why, it is a boy who came to Now York with a dollar in his pocket and all his estate slung over his shouldor in a cotton handkerchief. All that silver on tho dancing span is petrified sweat drops; that beautiful dross is tho faded calico over which God put his hand of perfection, turning it to Turkish satin or Italian silk; thoso diamonds aro tho tears which suffering froze as thoy fell, Oh, thero is a river of difficulty between ua and overy earthly achievement. You know that. You admit that. You know this is so with regard to the acquisition of knowledge. Tho ancients used to say that Vulcan struck Jupiter on tho head, and the goddess of wisdom jumped out, illustrating tho truth that wisdom comes by hard knocks. There was a river of difficulty between Shake speare, tho boy, holding tho horses at the door of tho London theater, and that Shakespeare; the greati dramatist, win ning the applause of all audiences by his tragedies. There was a river between Benjamin Franklin, with a loaf of bread under his arm, walking tho streets of Philadelphia, and that samo Benjamin Franklin, tho philosopher, just outsido of Boston flying a kito in tho thunder storm. An idler waB cured of hia bad habit by looking through tho window, night after night, at a man who seemed sitting at his desk turning off ono sheot of writing after another until almost tho dawn of tho morning. Tho man sitting there writing until morning was industrious Walter Scott; tho man who looked at him through the window was Lockhart, his illustrious biographer afterward. Lord Mansfield, pursued by the press and by tho populaco, because of a certain line of duty, went on to discharge the duty, and while tho mob were around him de manding the taking of his lifo ho shook his fist in the face of the mob and said, "Sirs, when one's last end comes, it can not como too soon if ho falls in defense of law and the liberty of his country." And so thoro is, my friends, a tug, a tussle, a trial, a push, an anxiety, through which every man must go be foro ho comes to worldly success and worldly achievement. You admit it. Now be wise enough to apply it in reli gion. Eminent Christian character is only gained by tho Jordanio passago; no man just happened to get good. Why docs that man know so much about the Scriptures? He was studying tho Biblo while you were reading a novel. He was on firo with the sublimi ties of the Biblo while you wero sound asleep; by tug, tussle, pushing and run ning in the Christian lifo that man got so strong for God; in a hundred Solfor inos ho learned how to fight; In a hun dred shipwrecks ho learned how to swim. Tears over sin, tears over Zion's desola tion, tears over tho impenitent, tears over the graves made, aro tho Jordan which that man had passed. Sorrow pales tho cheek, and fades the eye, and wrinkles tho brow; and withers tho hands. Thoro aro mourning garments in the wardrobe, and thero aro deaths in every family record; all around aro tho relics of the dead. THE JORDAN OF DEATH. The Christian has passed tho Rod sea of troublo, and yet he thinks thero is a Jordan of death botweon him and heav en. Ho comes down to that Jordan of death and thinks how many havo been lost thero. When Molyneux was explor ing tho Jordan in Palestine, ho had his boats all knocked to pieces in tho rapids of that rivor. And thero aro a great many men who havo gono down in tho river of death; the Atlautio and Pacific havo not swallowed so many. It is an awful thing to make shipwrecks on tho rock of ruin masts falling, hurricanes flying, death coming, groaninga in tho wator, moanings in tho wind, thunder in tho sky, while God, with the finger of lightning, writes all over tho sky, "I will tread them in my wrath, and I will tram ple thom in my fury." Tho Christian comes down to this rag ing torrent, and he knows ho must pass out, and as he comes toward tho timo hia breath gets shorter, und his last breath leaves him as he steps Into tho stream, and no sooner does he touch the stream than it ia parted, and he goes through dry shod, whilo all tho waters wavo their plumes, crying: "O death, whtre is thy sting? O gravo, whore in thy victory?' God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes, and thero shall bo no moro weeping, and thero shall bo no more death. Some of your children havo already gono up tho other bank, You lot them down on this sldo of the bank; they will be on tho other bank to heln von ut with supernatural strength. The other morn ing at ray table, all ray family present, I thought to myself how pleasant it would I bo if I could put all in a boat and then go in with them, and we could pull acroM. the river to tho next world and be there all together, No family parting, no gloomy obseqnle. It wouldn't take five wlaatee to go from bask to bask, and ttuq fa that better world to be together forever. Wouldn't it bo pleasant for you to toko all your family into that blessed country If you could all go togothcr? I remember ray mothor in her dy ing hour said to my father, "Father, wouldn't it bo pleasant if wo could all go together?" But we cannot all go to gothor. Wo must go ono by ono, and wo must bo grateful if wo get thoro at all. What q heaven it will bo if we havo all our families thero to look around and seo all tho children aro pres ent I You would rather havo thom all thero, and you go with bare brov for ever, than that ono should bo missing to completo tho garlands of hmivcn for your coronal. Tlio Lord God of Joshua, givo thom a safo Jordanio passago! Evon children will go through dry shod. Thoso of us who woro brought up in tho country1 remember, when the summer was coming on in our boyhood days, wo always longed for tho day whon wo woro to go barefooted, and after teasing our mothers in regard to it for a good whilo, and thoy consented, wo remember tho de licious 6onsation of tho cool grass when wo put our uncovered foot on it. And tho timo will como when thcso shoes wo wear now, lest wo bo cut of the sharp ploces of this world, shall bo taken off, and with unsandaled foot wo will stop into tho bod of tho river; with feet untrammoled, free from pain and fa tigue, we will gain that last journey, when, with one foot in tho bed of tho rivor and tho other foot on tho other bank, wo struggle upward. That will be heaven. Oh, I pray for all my dear people a safo Jordanio passago! That is what tho dying Christian husband felt when ho Baid: "How tho candlo flickers, Nellie! Put It out. I shall sleep well to night and wako in tho morning." COMFORT rOR THE BEREAVED. Ono word of comfort on this subject for all tho bereaved. You seo, our de- Eartod friends have not been submerged, avo not been ewamped in the waters. They havo only crossed over. Thcso Israelites wero just as thoroughly alivo on the western banks of tho Jordan as they hod been on the eastern banks of tho Jordan, and our departed Christian frienda havo only crossed over not sick, not dead, not exhausted, not extin guished, not blotted out, but with healthier respiration, and stouter pulses, and keener oyesight, nnd hotter prospects crossed over, their sins, thoir physical and mental disquiet, all left clear this sido, an eternally flowing, Impassablo obstacle botwocn thom and all human and satanio pursuit. Crossed ovor I Oh, I ahako hands of congratulation with all tho bereaved in tho consideration that our departed Christian frionds nro safe! Why was thoro so much joy in certain circles in New York when peoplo heard from tho frionds who wero on board that belated stoamor? It was feared that ves sel had gone to tho bottom of tho sea, and when the friends on this side heard that tho steamer had arrived safely In Liverpool, had wo not a right to congrat ulate tho peoplo in Now York that their friends had got safely across? And is it not right this 'morning that I congratu late you that your departed frionds aro safo on tho shore of heaven? Would you havo them back again? Would you have thoso old paronts back again? You know how hard it was sometimes for them to get their breath in tho stifled atmosphere of the summer. Would you have them back in this weather? Didn't they use thoir brain long enough? Would you have your children back again? Would you havo them tako tho risks of tempta tion which throng overy human path way? Would you havo thom cross the Jordan threo times? In addition to cross ing it already, cross it again to greet you now and thon cross baok afterward? For certainly you would not want to keep them forever out of heaven. Pauso and weep, not for the freed from patn, But that the sigh of love would bring them back again. I ask a quostion, and there Beema to como bock tho answer in heavnly eche: "What, will you never bo sick again?' "Never flick again." "What, will you novor be tired again? "Never tired again." "What, will you nover weep again?' "Never weep again." "What, will you nover dio again?' "Nover die again." On, yo army of departed kindred, wo hail yon from bank to bank! Wait for na when the Jordan of death shall part for us. Como down and moot ua half way botwoen tho willowed banka of earth and tho palm groves of heaven. May our great High Priest go ahead of. ns, and with bruised feet touch tho wa ter, and then shall be fulfilled tho words of my text, "All Israel went ovC on dry ground until all tho peoplo wore gono clear through Jordan." If I ask you what shall bo tho glad hymn of this morning, I think thero would be a thousand voices tliat would choose tho samo hymn tho hymn that Illumines so many death chambers the hymn that has been tho porting hymn in many an instance tho old hymn: On Jordan's stormy hanks I stand And cast a wistful eye To Canaan's fair and happy land, Where my possessions lie. Ob, the transporting, rapturous scene That rises ou iny sight! Bwcet fields arrayed In living green, And rivers of delight, St Your Old Vent. Joseph Gillott, a member of tho well known firm of makers of stool pens, says that a steel pen will last for months with careful use. "If your pen gets scratchy and doesn't write well," ho further as sorta, "don't cast it oeldo for a new ono. That is folly. Tho pen is not worn out, but simply tired. Givo it a rest for a day or two. Thon bold it in a gaslight for perlups 10 seconds, not longer, and resume your writing. If you are not pleasantly surprised at tho results, I'll ot myself down aa a poor prophot."
