Talmage e text was Kornaus Xiii 12, Tho Day is at Bank from Tho mountains and the Seaside and Tho Springs and Tho farm House your of Hooks bronzed and your Spirita lighted i nil Yon Homo again with Tho words of Ghazi to Tho Shn air Umito is it Woll with thoe is it Well with thy hush Aud is it Well with the child on some faces i see Tho Mark of to cent grief but All along the track of tears i see Tho Story of Resur co tion and reunion when All tears Aro done Tho deep blowing of Tho keel Fol Lowed by Tho Flash of Tho phosphorescence. Now that i Havo asked Yon in regard to your welfare you naturally ask How i am. Very Woll thank Yon. Whether it was the bracing air of Tho mountains or a Bath in the surf of Long Island Beach or whether it is Tho Joy of standing in this great group of warm hearted friends or who Thor it is a now appreciation of Tho goodness of god i cannot Tell. I simply know i am Happy. It was said that John Moffatt the great methodist pc abhor occasion ally got fast in his Sermon and to extricate himself would Ory hallelujah i am in no Buch predicament today but i am full of Tho aame rhapsodic Eja Oula tion. Starting out this morning on a new ecclesiastical year i want to give you Tho keynote of my next 13 months ministry. I want to Sot it to Tho tunes of Antioch Ariel Coronation i want to put a now trumpet Stop into my sermons. We do wrong if we allow our personal sorrows to interfere with the glorious fact that Tho kingdom is coming. To Are wicked if to allow apprehension of National disaster to put Down Faith in god and in Tho mis Sion of our american Puoplo. Tho god who hath been on Tho Side of this nation since Tho 4th of july 1776, will see to it that this nation shall not com Mit suicide on nov. 3, 1806. By Tho time Tho unparalleled harvests of this summer get Down to the Seaboard to shall to standing in a Sunburst of National Prosperity that will paralyse Tho pessimists who by their evil prop Helios Are blaspheming Tho god who hath blessed this nation Asho hath blessed no other. Notes of gladness. In All our Christian work you and i want Moro of the element of gladness. No Man had a right to say that Christ never laughed. Do you suppose that to was glum at Tho wedding in Cana of Galileo do you suppose that Christ was unresponsive when Tho children clambered Over Iii knee and shoulder at his own Invof Atlon do you suppose that the evangelist meant nothing when he said of Christ to rejoiced in Spir it do you believe that Tho Divino Christ who pours All Tho Waters Over Tho rocks at Vernal Falls Yos onsite does not believe in Tho sparkle and Gal lop and tumultuous Joy and Rushing raptures of human life i he love not Only that Tho morning laughs and that the mountains laugh and that Tho seas laugh and that Tho cascades Langh but that Christ laughed. Moreover Tako a laugh and a tear into an Alembic and As say them and test them and Analyse them and you will often find As much of the Puro Gold of religion in a laugh As in a tear. Deep spiritual Joy always shows itself in facial illumination. John Wesley said to was Suro of a Good religious impression being produced be cause of what to Calls Tho great glad Ness to saw among Tho people. Godless merriment is blasphemy anywhere but expression of Christian Joy is appropriate everywhere. Moreover Tho Outlook of the world ought to stir us to gladness. Astronomers disturbed Many people by tolling them that there was danger of Stellar collision. We were told by these Astron omers that Thero arc worlds coming very near together and that a shall Havo plagues and wars and tumults and per haps the world s destruction. Do not to scared. If you Havo Ever stood at a rail Road Center where. 10 or 20 or 80 rail tracks Cross each other and soon that by the movement of the switch one or two inches Tho train shoots this Way and that without colliding Thon you May understand How 50 worlds May Como within an Inch of disaster and that Inch Boas Good As 1,000,000 Miles. If a human switch tender can shoot the trains this Way and that without harm cannot Tho hand that for thousands of years has up Tell Tho universe Koep our Little world out of harm s Way Chris Tian geologists toll us that this world was millions of years in building. Well now i do not think god would take millions of years to build a House which was to last Only 6,000 years. There is nothing in Tho world or outside the world terrestrial or astronomical to excite dismay. I wish that Somo Stout gospel Breeze might scatter All the malaria of human foreboding. The Bun Rose this morning at about 6 o clock and i think that is just about the hour in the world s history. The Day is at the first Ray of Tho Dawn i see in the gradual substitution of diplomatic skill for human butchery. Within the last 30 years there have been International differences which would have brought a Shook of arms in any other Day but which were peacefully adjusted the pen taking the place of the sword. The venezuelan controversy in any other age of the world would have brought Shook of arms but now is being so quietly adjusted that no one knows just How it is being settled. The Alabama question in any other age of the world would have caused War Between the United states and eng land. How was it settled by men of War off the Narrows or off the Mersey by the Gulf Stream of the Ocean crossed by a Gulf Stream of human blood by the pathway of nations Incarnadine a no. A few Wise men go into a quiet room at Geneva talk the matter Over and Telegraph to Washington and to London All peace peace i England pays to the United states the amount really More than she ought to Havo paid. But still All that Alabam Broil is forever. Battle. So the quarrel about the Canadian fisheries in any other ago would have caused War Between the United states and England. England said pay me for Tho invasion of my Canadian Fisher the United states said i will not pay Well Tho two nations Sny i guess we had hotter Leavo the whole matter to a Tho commission is appointed and Tho commission examines Tho affair and the commission report and pay we ought pay to must pay to do. Not a Pound of powder burned no our Hurt so much As by the scratch of a pin. Arbitration Lna Toad of Battlo. So Tho samoan controversy in any of Hor ago would Havo brought Germany and the United states into bloody collision. But All is settled. Arbitration instead of Battlo. Franco will Novor again i think through the Pec Cadillo of an Omassa Dor bring on a Battlo with other nations. She sees that god in punish ment at Sedan blotted out the French Empire and Tho Only aspirant for that throne who had any right of expectation Dies in a War that has not even the dignity of being respectable. What is the Leaf that England would Liko to tear out of Hor history Tho Zulu War. Down with the sword and up with the treaty to in this country might bettor have settled our sectional difficulties by arbitration than by Tho trial of Tho sword. Philanthropy said to Tho North pay Down a certain amount of Money for Tho Purchase of Tho slaves and lot All those born after a certain Timo be born Freo philanthropy at Tho Samo Timo said to Tho South you soil the slaves and got rid of this Groat National con test and Tho North replied i won t pay a the South re plied i won t War War a million dead men and a National debt which might Havo ground this nation to powder Why did to not let William h. Seward of now York and Alexandor h. Stephens of Georgia go out and spend a Fow Days under Tho Trees on Tho Banks of Tho Potomac and talk Tho Mattor Over and Sottilo it As Settle it Thoy could rather than Tho North pay in Cost of War ?4,700,000,000, and Tho South pay $4, 750,000,000, the destroying Angol Loav aug Tho first bom dead in so Many houses All the Way from Tho Penobscot to the Alabama. To aged men whose sons fell in Tho strife do you not think that would Havo Boon Bottor of yes we Havo Como to believe i think in this country that arbitration is Bottor than Battlo a word for poor to. I May to mistaken but i Hope that the last War both leu Christian nations is ended. Barbarians May mix their War paint and Chinpao and japanese go into wholesale massacres and afghan and Zulu hurl poisoned arrows but i think Christian nations Havo gradually Learned that War is disaster to Victor As Woll As vanquished and that almost anything bought by blood is bought at too dear a Price. I wish to god this nation might to a Model of willingness for arbitration. No need of killing another Indian. No need of sacrificing Ouy mor Brave general Custers top exasperating Tho red Man and there will be no Moro arrows shot out from Tho ambush ments. A general of Tho United states army in High repute throughout this Laud and who perhaps had been in Moro Indian wars than any other officer and who had been wounded again and again in behalf of our government in Battlo against Tho indians told to that All the wars that had Ever occurred be tween indians and Whito men had Boon provoked by Whito men and that Thero was no exception to Tho Rulo while we Are arbitrating with chistian nations let us toward barbarians carry ourselves in a manner in provocative of contest. Lot. Me put myself in their place. I inherit a Large estate and Tho Waters Aro Rich with fish and the Woods Aro Rongful with Birds and my Cornfields Are 3ilken and Golden. Hero is my Sis ter s Ruvo. Out yonder under Tho Large tree my father died. An invader comes and proposes to drive to off and take Possession of my property. crowds me Hack to crowds me on and crowds to into a closer Corner until after awhile i say stand Back Don crowd me any More or i la strike what right Havo you to come Here and drive to off my premises i got this farm from my father and to got it from his father. What right have you to come hero and molest me you blandly say of i know More than you do. I Bolong to a higher civilization. I Cut my hair Shorter than you do. I could put this ground to a great Deal better use than you and you keep crowding Moback and crowding me on into a closer Corner and a closer Corner until one Day i look around upon my suffering family and fired by their hardships i hew you in Twain. Forthwith All the world comes 1 to your funeral to pronounce Eulogius comes to my execution to anathema ize to you Are the hero. I am Tho Cul Prit behold Tho United states govern ment and Tho North american Indian i Tho red Man has stood More wrongs than i would or you. We would have struck sooner deeper. That which is right in Defenso of a Washington Homo is right in defense of a Home on top of the Sierra Nevada. Bosforo this dwindling red race Dies completely out i wish that this generation might by common Justice atone for the inhuman Ity of its predecessors. In the Day of god s judgment i would rather be a blood smeared Modoc than a swindling United states officer on an Indian reservation one was a barbarian and a Savago and never pretended to be any thing but a barbarian and a Savago the other pretended to be a representative of a Christian nation. Notwithstanding All this Tho general disgust with War and the substitution of diplomatic skill for Tho glittering Edge of keen steel is a sign unmistakable that the Day is at distance conquered. I find another Ray of Dawn in the compression of the world s distances. What a slow Snail like almost impossible thing would have b9en the world s rectification with 1,400,000.000 of population and no facile Means of communication. But now through Teleg Raphy for the Eye and telephonic intimacy for Tho ear and through steam boating and railroading the 25,000 Miles of the world s circumference Are shr Veling up into insignificant Brevity. Hon Kong is nearer to new York than a few years ago new Havon was. Bom Bay Moscow Madras Melbourne with in speaking distance. Purchase a Tele graphic Chart and by the Blue lines see the telegraphs of the land and by the red lines the cd let Unuer the Ocean. Yon Seo what Opportunity this is going to give for the final movements of christianity. A fortress May to months or Yoars in building but after it is constructed it May do All its work in 20 minutes. Christianity has Beon planting its batteries for 10 centuries and May go on in Tho work through other centuries but when those batteries Are thoroughly planted those fortresses Are fully built they May All do their work in 24 hours. The world sometimes derides the Church for slowness of movement is science any Qai Oker did it not take science 5,652 years to find out so simple a thing As Tho circulation of the human blood with the Earth and the sky full of electricity science took 5,800 years before it oven guessed that there was any practical use that might be made of this Subtle and mighty Elemont when Good men take Possession of All those scientific forces and All these agencies of invention i do not know that the re-1 a option of Tho world will be More than Tho work of half a Day. Do we not Road the Quoon a speech at Tho pro Rogu ing of parliament Tho Day before in London if that to so is it anything marvelous to believe that in 24 hours a divine communication can Roach Tho whole Earth suppose Christ should descend on the expect that Christ will Como among Tho nations personally. Suppose that tomorrow morning the son of god from a hover ing Cloud should descend upon these cities. Would not that fact be known All Tho world Over in 24 hours suppose he should present his gospel in a few words saying i am Tho Sou of god. I Canto to Pardon All your sins and to Hoal All your sorrow. To prove that i am a supernatural being i have just descended from Tho Clouds. A you believe me and do you believe me now Why All Tho Telegraph stations of the Earth would be crowded As none of them were Ever crowded just after a Shipwreck. I Tell you All these things to show Yon it is not among Tho impossibilities or even Tho i probabilities that Christ will conquer Tho whole Earth and do it i Stanter when the time comes. There Aro forego Kenigs in the air. Something Groat is going to happen. I do not think that Jupiter is going to run us Down or that Tho Arlo of the world is going to break but i mean something great for Tho world s Blessing and not for the world s damage is going to happen. I think Tho world has had it hard Ono go. Enough the famines and plagues. Enough Tho Asiatic cholera. Enough Tho wars. Enough Tho shipwrecks. Enough Tho conflagrations. I think our world could stand right Well a proves Sion of Prosperi ties and triumphs. Bet ter to on the Lookout better Havo your observatories open toward the heavens1 and the lenses of your most powerful telescopes Well polished. Better have All your Loydon jars ready for some new pulsation of might influence. Better have new fonts of Typo in your printing offices to set up sovino astounding Good news. Better Havo Somo new Banner that has never been carried ready for sudden processions. Botter Havo the Bells in your Church towers Well Hung and rope within Roach that you May ring but Tho marriage of the King s son. Cleanse All your courthouses for Tho judge of All the Earth May appear. Let All your legislative Halls to gilded or Tho great lawgiver May be about to come. Drive off the thrones of despotism All Tho occupants for Tho King of heaven and Earth May to about to reign. The darkness of Tho night is Blooming and whitening into the lilies of morning Cloud and the lilies reddening into the roses of stronger garlands whether White or red for him on whose head Are Many crowns. The Day is at from desert to Garden. Ono More Ray of the Dawn i Seo in facts chronological and mathematical. Como now do not let us do another stroke of work until we have settled Ono Mattor. What is going to be Tho final Issue of this great contest Between sin and righteousness which is going to prove himself the stronger god or Dia Bolus is this world going to be All Garden or All Desort now let us have that matter settled. If we believe Isaiah Aud Ezekiel and Hosea and Micah and Alabachi and John and Peter and Paul and the lord himself to believe that it is going to be All Garden. But let us have it settled. Lot us know whether to Aro working on toward a Success or toward a dead failure. If there is a Thild in your House sick and you Aro i Uro to is going to got Well you sympathize with present pains but All Tho foreboding is gone. If you Are in a of Clono off the Florida coast and the Cap Tain assures you Tho vessel is stanch and Tho winds Are changing for a better Quarter and he is Suro he we la bring fifty years ago. This is the Cradle in which there grew that thought of a philanthropic brain a. Remedy that would make life new for the multitudes that were racked with pain. Twas Sarsaparilla As made you Kaov by Ayer some 50 years ago. Ayer s Sarsaparilla was in its infancy half a Cen Tury ago. To Day it doth be stride the narrow world like a what is the secret of its Power its cures the number of them i the wonder of theml imitators have Fol Lowed it from the beginning of its Success. They Are still be Hind it. Wearing the Only medal granted to Sai Saparillas in the world s fair of 1893, it Points proudly to its record. Others imitate the remedy they can t imitate the record 5o years of cures. Y of sure into Tho Harbor you patiently bub Iuit to present distress with the thought of Safe arrival. Now i want to know whether to Aro coming on toward dismay darkness and defeat or on to Ward Light and blessedness. You and 1 believe Tho latter and if so Overy year we spend is one year subtracted from the world s woe and every event that passes whether Bright or dark brings us Ono event nearer a Happy consummation and by All that is inexorable in chronology and mathematics i commend you to Good cheer and courage. If there is anything in arithmetic if you sub tract two from five and leave three then by every rolling Sun we Are coming on toward a magnificent terminus. Then Overy Winter passed is one severity less for our poor world. Then every summer gone by brings us nearer unfading arboro3cence. Put your algebra Down on the top of your Bible and Roj Oica if it is nearer morning at 8 o clock than it in at 2, if it is nearer morning at 4 o clock than it is at 8, then to Are nearer the Dawn of Tho world s deliver Ance. God s clock seems to go very slowly but the pendulum swings and the hands move and it will yet strike noon. The Sun and Tho Moon stood still once. They will never stand still again until they Stop forever. If you believe arithmetic As Well As your Bible you must believe we Are nearer Tho Dawn. Tho Day is at physical and spiritual. Thoro is a class of Phenomena which makes to think that the spiritual and heavenly world May after awhile make a demonstration in this world which will bring All moral and spiritual things to a Climax. Now i am no spiritualist but Evory intelligent Man has noticed that there Are strange and mysterious things which indicate to him that perhaps Tho spiritual world is not so far off As sometimes we conjecture and that after awhile from the spiritual and he Vouly world there May be a demonstration upon our world for its betterment. To Call it magnetism or to Call it mesmerism or to Call it electricity because we want some term to cover up our ignorance. I do not know what it is. I never heard an Audi ble voice from the other world. I am persuaded of this however that Tho Voil Between this world and Tho next is getting thinner and thinner and that perhaps after awhile at Tho Call of god not at the Call of Tho Davenport Brothers or Andrew Jackson Davis. Some of the old scriptural warriors some of Tho spirits of other Days mighty for Joshua or a Caleb or a David or a pan May come Down and help us in the Battle against unrighteousness. Of i How i would like to have them of the red sea him of the Valley of Ajalon him of Mars Hill i English history says that Robert Clayton of Tho English cavalry at the close of the War bought up All the old cavalry horses lest they should be turned out to Drudgery and hard work and bought a piece of ground at knaves mire Heath and turned out these old warhorse into the thickest and richest pasture to spend the rest of their Days As compensation for what they had done in other Rye Onn any l��rw1o�oo�-� came up and these warhorse mistook Tho Thunder of the skies for the Thunder of Battle and they wheeled into line no riders on their wheeled into line ready for Tho fray. And i doubt me whether when Tho last Thunder of this Battle for god and truth goes booming through the heavens the old scriptural warriors can keep their places on their thrones. Methinks they will Spring into the fight and Exchange Crown for helmet and Palm Branch for weapon and Conio Down out of Tho King s galleries into the Arena crying make room i must fight in this great Arma Geddon i the old warhorse mingling in the fight. Beloved people i preach this Sermon because i want you to toil with the sunlight in your faces. I want you old men to understand before you die that All the work you did for god while yet your oar was Alert and your foot Fleet is going to be counted up in the final Victo Ries. I want All these younger people to understand that when they toil for god they always win the Day that All Pray ers Aro answered and All Christian work is in seme Way effectual and that the tide is setting in the right direction and that All heaven is on our , cherubic arc angelic omnipotent Chariot and throne doxology and pro cession principalities and Dominion he who hath the Moon under his feet and All Tho armies of heaven on White horses. Brother brother All i am afraid of is not that Christ will lose the Battle but that you will not get into it Quick enough to do something worthy of our blood bought immortality. O Christ How shall i meet thee thou of the scar red brow and the scarred Back and the scarred hand and Tho scarred foot and the scarred breast if i Havo no scars or wounds gotten in thy service it shall not be so. I Stop out today in front of the Battle. Como on to Foos of god i dare you to tiie combat coins on with pens dipped in malignancy. Como on with tongues forked and Viorine. Come on with types soaked in the scum of the eternal pit i defy Bycul come on i i Bare my brow i uncover my heart strike i cannot see my lord until i Havo Boon Hurt for Christ if we do not suffer with him on Earth we cannot be glorified with him in heaven. Take Good heart on on on see the skies have brightened Soo the hour is about to come pick out All Tho cheesiest of the anthems. Let Tho orchestra string their beet instruments. The night is far spent Tho dry is it scuba o Trumbull. An inventory of the estate of the late Lyman Liu Bull 1 Ken a probate proceedings shows that it amounted to f 178,000. The probate invoice affords obvious proof that every Dollar in value of this Groat statesman s property was absolutely clean. Not a Dollar had the taint of abuse from perverted official influence or Loose professional practices. Lyman Trumbull s official life extended Ever a period of 40 years. was a member of the United states Senate 18 years. The amount of the estate left by him is absolute proof of his purity in Public life. It is no greater in amount than should to accumulated during a Long professional career by any Man with Ordinary Economy and Thrift and sagacious limited investments. This evidence of the purity of his character was not needed by those who were Fa-1 Miliar with his Long and distinguished career. But it is refreshing to find circumstantial evidence so obvious of a great and pure examine. 25tefip Independent order of in North America.
