By american press Assort Hon Washington dec. 12.�?taking Tho exciting Story of Samson s fall As a suggestion or. Talmud go in Liis discourse shows How giants in hotly and mind or soul ought to to consecrated to Good Aud great purpose. His text is judges Xiv 1. Quot and Sansou went Down to twin Isth there Oro two sides to Tho character of Samson. Tho our phase of his life if followed into the particulars would administer to the grotesque and Mirthful but there is a phase of his character fraught with lessons of solemn Aud oter Ual import. To those Graver lessons to devote our Sermon. This giant no doubt in Early life gave evidences of what he was to to. It is almost always so. Thero were two Napoleons Tho boy Napoleon and Tho Man Napoleon but both alike two Howardsr Tho Hoy How aril and Tho Man Howard hut both alike two Samsons the boy Samson and to Man Samson but both alike. This giant was no doubt the hero of Tho playground Aud nothing could stand before Bis exhibitions of Youthful prowess. At 18 years of ago he was betrothed to Tho daughter of a Philistine. Going Down toward Tiki path u lion came upon him and no though this Young giant was weapon less to seized the monster by to Long Mono and Shook him As a hungry hound shakes a March Haro Aud Mado his Bones crack and left him by Tho was Ido bleeding under to smiting of Bis fist and Tho grinding heft of his Heel. Thero to Sandds looming up Buovo other men a Mountain of flesh his arms bunched with muscle that can lift Tho Gato of a City taking an Utt tudo defiant of everything. Ilia hair had never been Cut and it rolled Down in seven great plaits Over Liis shoulders adding to his bulk fierceness und terror. Tho philistines want to conquer him Aud therefore they must find out a hero Tho secret of Liis strength lies. Thu treacherous Deli Lull. Thero is a dissolute woman living in Tho Valley of sorek of Tho name of Delilah. They appoint her Tho agent in Tho Case. Tho philistines arc secreted in Tho sumo building und then Delilah goes to work and coaxes Samson to Tell Liat is the secret of his strength. Quot Well Quot to says Quot if you should take Sevi u Green Withes such As they fasten wild beasts with Aud put them around to i should be perfectly powerless. A so Sho binds him with Tho seven Green Withes. Then she claps her hands und says Quot they come Tho philistines Quot and to walks out As though they Scro no impediment Sho coaxes him again Aud says a now Tell to Tho secret of this great and to replies a if you should Taku Sonio ropes that Liuvao never been used Aud Tio to with them i 6liould to just like other Sho tics him with Tho ropes claps Bor hands und shouts Quot they Como a Tho philistines Quot he walks out As easily is to did before not a single obstruction. 8bo coaxes him again and he says Quot now if you should take Obeso seven Long plaits of hair and by this House loom weave them into a web i could not get so the House loom is rolled up Aud the 6lmttlo Flics backward and Forward und Tho Long plaits of hair Are Woven into a web. Then Sho claps her hands and says Quot they Como a Tho philistines a he walks out As easily us to did before dragging a part of Tho loom with him. But after Whilo Sho persuaded him to Tell Tho truth. says Quot if you should Tako a razor or shears nud Cut off this Long hair i should be powerless and in the hands of my Samson bleeps nud that Sho May not Wake him up during Tho process of shearing help is called in. You know that the Barbers of the East have such a skillful Way of manipulating Tho head to this very Day that instead of waking up a sleeping Man they will put n Man wide awake soul asleep. I hear Tho Blades of the shears grinding against each other Aud i Seo to Long locks falling off. Tho shears or razor accomplishes what Green Withes and new ropes and House loom could not do. Sud duly she claps her hands and says a Tho philistines lie upon thee Samson who rouses with a struggle but his strength is All gone. is in the hands of his enemies. Out Ion to Lay Low Rundman. I hear Tho groan of Tho giant us they take his eyes out Aud then i Sec him staggering of in his blindness feeling his Way Asho goes on toward Gaza. Tho prison door is Topcu Aud the giant is thrust in. To sits Down Aud puts Liis baud on Tho Mill Crank which with exhausting horizontal Morion goes Day after Day week after week Mouth after Mouth work work work. The consternation of the world in Captivity Bis locks shorn Liis eyes punctured grinding Corn in Gaza. First of All behold in this giant of the text that physical Power is not Al was an Index of moral a Tower. was a huge Man. Tho lion fun mud it out and the 8,000 men whom he slow found it out yet to was the subject of Petty revenues and Cnthia used by Low passion. I am far from throwing any discredit upon physical stamina. There Are those who seem to have great admiration for delicacy and sic Liness of Constitution. 1 never could Sec any glory in weak nerves or sick headache. Whatever Effort in our Day is made to make the. Utin und women More robust should have the favor of every Gottl citizen As Well As of every Chris Tau. Gymnastics May to positively religious. Good people sometimes ascribe to s wicked heart Liat they ought to ascribe to a slow liver. The body Aud the soul Are such near neighbors that they often catch each other 6 diseases. Those who never saw a sick Day and who like Hercules show the giant in the Cradle have More to answer for than those who Are the subjects of lifelong infirmities. who can lift twice As much As you can and walk twice n6 far and work twice is Long will have a doable account to meet in the judgment How often is it that you do not find physical Energy indicative of spiritual Power if a Clear head is Worth More than one dizzy with perpetual vertigo if Muscles with the to div of health in number 24 them Are wort i More than tho6e drawn up in chronic if an Eye Quick to catch passing objects is better than one with vision dim and Uncertain then god will require of us efficiency a just in proportion to what to has Given us. Physical Energy ought to have As Good digestion of truth As we have capacity to assimilate food. Our spiritual hearing ought to be As Good us our physical hearing. Our spiritual taste ought i to to us Clear is our Tourne. Samsons i in body we ought to to giants in moral Power. Tho loot Strouth. But while you find a great Many men who realize that they ought to use their Money aright Aud use their intelligence aright How few men you find aware of Tho fact but they ought to Uso their physical organism aright i with every Ali unit of Tho heart there a something saying. Quot work work i Quot Aud lest we should complain that to Honvo no tools to work with god gives us our hands Aud feet with every knuckle and with Over joint and with Overy muscle saying to us Quot Lay hold nud do but How often it is that men with physical strength do not Servo Christ i they Are like a ship full manned Aud full rigged in Pablo of vast Tou ago Able to endure All stress of weather yet swinging idly at Tho docks when these men ought to be crossing and re crossing Tho great Ocean of human suffering Aud sin with god s supplies of mercy. How often it is that physical strength a used in doing positive damage or in luxurious ease when with sleeves rolled up and bronzed bosom fearless of to shafts of opposition it ought to to Luying hold with All its might and tugging Uway to lift up this sunken wreck of a world. It is a most shameless fact that much of Tho business of the Church Aud of Tho world must to done by those comparatively invalid. Richard Baxter by reason of his diseases All his Days sitting in Tho door of Tho Tomb yet writing More than 100 volumes and sending out us influence for god that will Elduro As Long us lilo Quot saints everlasting Edward son never knowing a Well Day yet How to preached und How be wrote helping thousands of dying souls like himself to Quot swim in a sea of glory in Aud Robert my Guoyue a walking Skeleton yet you know what he did in Dundee and Liow to Shook Scotland with Zeal for god. Philip Dod Dridge advised by Liis friends because of Liis illness not to cuter Trio ministry yet you know what to did for the Quot Rise Aud Progress of religion in the Church and in Tho world. Wilberforce was told by Liis doctors that lie could not live a Fortu igbo yet it that very time entering upon philanthropic enterprises that demanded Tho greatest endurance Aud persistence. Robert Hali suffering Ecru citations so that often in his pulpit while preaching to would Stop and lie Down of a sofa inn getting up again to preach about heaven until the glories of Tho celestial City dropped on to multitude doing More work perhaps than almost atty Well Man in his Day. Of How often it is that men with great physical endurance Are not so great ill moral and a i Ritzul stature. Liilo Thero Cru achievements for those who Are Bent All their Days with sick a Esse achievements of patience achievements of Christian endurance�?1 Call upon men of health today men of muscle men of nerve men of physical Power to devote the solves to the lord. Giants in body you ought to to giants in soul. Samiton i .11 Ingu Jdc strength. Behold also in Tho Story of my text illustration of the damage that strength can do if it to misguided. It seems to to that this Uijun spent a great Deal of his time in doing evil this Samson of my text. To a bet which he had lost by guessing of his Riddle to robs nud kills 30 people. To was not Only Gigantic in strength but Gigantic in mischief and a Type of those men in All Ages of the world who powerful in body or mind or any faculty of social position or wealth have used their strength for iniquitous purposes. It is not the Small week men of Tho Day who do Tho damage. These Small men who go swearing and loafing about your stores and shops Aud banking houses assailing Christ and Tho Bible and Tho Conr Chi they do not do the damage. They have no influence. They Are vermin that you crush with your foot. But it is the giants of Tho Day Tho misguided giants giants in physical Power or giants in mental acumen. Or giants in social position or giants in wealth who do the damage. Tho men with a burp pens that Stab religion and throw their Poison All through our literature the men who Uso the Power of wealth to Sanction iniquity Aud bribe Justice Anil make truth and Honor Bow to their Golden scepter. Misguided giant so leik out for them. In to Middle Aud latter part of Tho last Century no doubt there were thousands of men in Paris Aud Edinburgh Aud London who hated god Aud blasphemed the name of the almighty hut they did but Little mischief they were Small men in significant men. Yet there were giants in those Days. Who can calculate Tho soul havoc of a Rousseau going on with a very enthusiasm of iniquity with fiery imagination seizing upon All lie impulsive natures of Bis Day. Or la avid plume who employed his life As a spider employs its Sun nor in spinning out Silken to i Tiu Tho a usury. Or Volt ire tin to. T Learned mull of his Day marshalling a great Host of septic a and leading them out ill the dark land of infidelity. Url Gibion who showed an uncontrollable grudge Ogai ust religion in his history of our of the most fascinating periods of the world s existence Quot the decline and fall of Tho roman Empire Quot a a Book in which with All the splendours of Liis Genius he magnified the errors of Christian disciples while with a sparseness of notice that never can to forgiven to treated of the Christian heroes of whom Tho world was not worthy a Croven on Earth. Of men of Stone physical health men of great mental stature men of High social position men of great Power of aug sort i want you to understand your Power and 1 want you to know that that Power devoted to god will be a Crown on Earth to Yon typical of a Crown in heaven but misguided bedraggled in sin administrative of evil god will to Linder against you with his condemnation in the Day when millionaire Aud pauper master Aud slave King and subject shall staud Side by Side in the judgment Aud Money bags Aud judicial or Miro mud rival Robe Beall to riven with Tho lightnings. Behold also How a giant May be slain i Delilah started the train of Circum Lancas that pulled Down the Temple of Dagon about i Anisim s ears Aud tens of thou Sauls of giants have gone Down to death and hell through Tho Samo impure fascinations. It seems to me that it is High time that pulp i. And platform and printing press speak out against the impurities of modern society. Fastidiousness and prudery say Quot better not speak. Yon will Rouse up Adverse criticism you will make Worso what you want to make bettor. Better Deal in glittering generalities. Tho subject is too delicate for polite but there Conics a voice from heaven overpowering the mincing sentimental ties of the Day saying Quot cry lond spare not lift up thy voice like u trumpet Aud show Ziy people their transor Casious and the House of Jacob their the trouble is that when people write or speak upon this theme they Are Apt to cover it i a i with the graces of Belles Lettres so i hut Tho crime is made attractive instead of repulsive. Lord Byron in Quot Don Juan adorns this crime until it smiles like 11 May Queen. Michelet the great French writer covers it up with leu itching rhetoric until it glows like Tho rising Sun when it ought to be made loathsome As a smallpox Hospital. There Are today influences abroad which if a resisted by the pulpit and the printing press will turn our modern cities into Sodom Aud gomorrah fit Only for Tho storm of fire and Brimstone that whelmed Tho cities of Tho Plain. You who Are seated in your Christian Homes compassed by moral und religious restraints do not realize the Gulf of iniquity that Bounds Yon on Tho North und Tho South Aud the East and the West while 1 speak there Are tens of thousands of men and women going Over the awful plunge of an impure life nud while i cry to god for mercy upon their souls i Call upon Yon to marshal in Tho defense of your Homes your Church nud your nation. There is a banqueting Hall that Yon have never heard described. You know All about Tho feast of ahas ferns where a thousand lords sat. Yon know All about Belshazzar s Carousel where the blood of the murdered King spurted into the faces of the Banque ters. You May know of Tho scene of riot Aud Wassail when there was set before Esons one dish of food that Cost $400,000. But i speak now of a different banqueting Hall. Its roof is fretted with fire. Its floor is tessellated with fire. Its chalices Are chased with fire. Its song is a song of fire. Its Walls Are buttresses of fire. Solomon refers to it when be says a her guests Are in the Depths of Deuth to. Invincible. Behold also in this giant of Tho text and in the giant of our own Century that great physical Power must crumble und expire. The Samson of the text Long ago went away. fought the lion. fought the philistines. could fight anything but death was too much for him. May have required a longer grave and a broader grave but Tho his terminus. If Theu to Are to be compelled to go out of this world where Are we to go this Lody Aud soul must soon part. What shall be the destiny of the former i know dust to dust. But what 6hall be the destiny of the latter shall it Rise into the companionship of the White Robed whose sins Christ Lias slain or will it go Down among Tho unbelieving who tried to gain Tho world and save their souls but were swindled out of bulb blessed to god we have a Champion he is so styled in the Bible a Champion who Lias conquered death and hell out1, he is ready to fight All our Battles from the first to the last Quot who is this that cometh from Edom with dyed garments from Bozrah mighty to save a it we follow in the Wake of that Champion Deach has no Power Aud the grave no Victory. The worst Man trusting in him Sciull Ilavu Bis dying pangs alleviated and Liis future illumined. In the Light of this subject 1 want to Call your attention to a fact which May not have Ceu rightly considered by five Meu in All the world Aud that is the fact that we must be brought into judgment for the employment of our physical organism. Shoulder Braiu baud foot we must answer in judgment for the use we have Mado of them. Have they been used for the Elevation of society or for its depression in proportion As our Arm is Stroug and our step elastic will on account at last be intensified. Thousands of sermons Are preached to invalids. 1 preach this morning to Stone men mud healthful to ecu. We must give to god us account for the right use of this physical organism. These invalids have comparatively Little to Accooe t for perhaps they could not lift 20 pounds. They could not walk half a mile without sitting Down to rest. In preparation of this subject i have said to myself How shall i account to god in judgment for the use of a body which never knew one moment of real sickness rising up in judgment standing beside men Aud women who had Only Little physical Energy and yet Cou earned that Energy in a conflagration of religious enthusiasm How will to feel abashed i Tim weak that Are Strong. Of men of Tho Strong Arm and Tho Stout heart what use Are you making of your physical forces will you be Able to stand the test of that Day when j to must answer for the Uso of every Talent whether it were a physical Energy or a mental acumen or a spiritual Power ?. The Day approaches and i see one who in this world was an invalid and As she stands before the throne of god to answer Sho Sayr. Quot i was sick All my Days. I had but very Little strength but 1 did As Well As i could in being kind to those who were More sick Aud More and Christ will say Quot Well Doue faithful Aud Theu a Little child will stand before the throne and Sho will say Quot on Earth 1 had a curvature of Tho spine and i was very weak and i was very sick but i used to gather Flowers out of j the wild cod and bring them to my sick Mother Aud she was comforted a Hen she saw Tho Sweet Flowers out of the Wildwood. I did t do much but 1 lid something. Quot and Christ shall say us be takes Lier up in his arms Aud kisses her a will Doue Well Doue faithful servant cuter thou into Tho Joy of thy lord. Quot what Theu will be said to us a we to whom the lord gave physical strength and continuous health i said to us old scotch minister who was one of the Best friends i Ever had Quot doctor did Vou Ever know Robert pol lock the scotch poet who wrote a the con so of time a a ooh yes a Here plied Quot i knew him Well. I was his classmate. A and then the doctor went on to Tell me How that Tho writing of Quot Tho course of time exhausted the health of Robert Pollock and he expired. It sems As if no Man could have such a glimpse of to Day for which other Days were made 11s Robert Pollock had and Long survive that glimpse. In the description of that Day he says among other things begin the woo to Woods and Tell it to the doleful winds. And doleful winds Wall to Tho howling Hills. And howling Hills mourn to the dismal Vales and dismal Vales sigh to Tho sorrowing Brooks. And sorrowing Brooks weep to Tho weeping Stream. And weeping Stream awake Tho groaning deep to heavens great archway of Tho Universo put sackcloth on and Oceon Robe thyself in garb of widowhood and gather All thy Waves into a groan and utter it Long loud deep piercing dolorous immense. The occasion uses it nature Dies and Angels Como to Lay her in her grave. What Robert Pollock saw in prophetic dream Yon and 1 will Seo in positive reality the judgment the judgment a lip tape. It is said that after Reading some of the inscriptions in a churchyard a Little girl asked her Mother where the naughty people were buried Aud certainly of tombstones it is Tho Mere exception that proves the Rulo to find such a mixture of faint Praise and Frank censure As in the following epitaph reputed to be found in Northumberland hero lie Tho Bod Lea of Thomas Bond and Mary his wife. She was Temperato Chaste and charitable but Sho was proud peevish und passionate. She was an wife Aud a tender Mother but her husband and child whom she loved Seldom Sun her countenance without a disgusting frown while she received visitors whom she despised with an endearing Smullo. 6ho was an admirable co Omiat. And without prodigality. Dispensed plenty to every person in her family. But would sacrifice their eyes to a Farthing Candle. Sho sometimes made her husband Hoppy with her Good qualities but much Moro frequently miserable with her Many fallings in so much that in thirty years cohabitation he often lamented that Bougor Oil her Virtues to had not on Tho whole enjoyed two years of matrimonial Comfort. At length finding that Sho had lost the affections of her husband As Well As the her neighbors family disputes having been divulged by servants she died of vexation july 20, 1�6s, aged a yearn. Her workout husband survived her four months and two Days and departed this life nov. 23, 1708. Corncob pipes and acct to stems. Tho manufacture of Corncob pipes has become a considerable Industry at Beaufort s. C. Special machinery has been made for the purpose and an expert Turner is employed to Carvo out Tho bowls which Are of Many Desiga Tho cobs Are of a particular com grown in the Missouri Valley and Are transported to South Carolina by the Carload. The cobs have to to seasoned for two or three years before they Are used. Tho 8upply of Cone stems which is obtained from the care brakes along the port Royal Railroad in lots of go 000 stems capable of being Cut into three lengths also employs much labor in Tho country to select Aud gather them. A new and attractive feature of some of these pipes is Tho Teetee Stem. Tho Teetee is a Shrub the botanical name of which i Cliftonia Ligus Trina. It grows no in a Long straight pointless Stem with a soft Center pith and of various circumferences from Tho size of of Ordinary Pipestem to that of Tho Little Finger. It has enjoyed the reputation from Tho a origines and among Southern planters d others who have Ever used it in preference to any other not excepting the Cherry or Fig Stem of Best absorbing Tho nicotine and affording a grateful Aud fragrant news. A Lucky find. A guest in a Philadelphia hotel lost a Diamond stud in the waste pipe of the Bathtub the other Day according to the Philadelphia record. Of hearing of the loss the proprietor allowed the pipe to be taken up at the expense of Tho loser. A plumber did the Job for $10, Aud Tho guest not Only recovered his stud but also found in Tho Bend of the Drain pipe a Diamond ring. Being an honest Man to gave the ring to Tho proprietor who advertised Tho find in several newspapers. As no one came to claim the ring Tho proprietor with an equally commendable sense of honesty returned it to the finder. Needless to say the loser of Tho stud was highly compensated for his trouble As the ring was valued at $150.
