So much that is do press a is said about Tho wickedness of the cities it will cheer us to read what or. Talmage says in this Sermon about their coming redemption. The text is Zechariah Viii 15, and the Strei of the City shall to full of boys and Iii playing in Tho of treats glib Isoe of cities Rede Modl now boys and girl who play in the streets run such Ril s that multitudes of them i and in ruin. But in the com ing time spoken of our cities will to so moral that lads and lass s shall be As sumo in the Public thoroughfares As in the Nursery. Pulpit and printing press for the most part in our Day Are Busy in Dis Nus sing Tho condition of Tho cities at this time but would it not be health fully encouraging to All Christian work ers and to All who Uro toiling to make rhe world better if we should for a Little while look Forward to Tho time when on cities Shull be revolutionized by Tho gospel of the son of god and All Tho darkness of sin and trouble and crime und suffering shall to gone from Tho world every Man has a Pride in Tho City of his nativity or residence if it he a City distinguished for any dignity or prow Ess. Caesar of his native Rome Virgil of Mantua Lycurgus of Sparta Osmos Bencs of Athens archimedes of Syracuse and Paul of Tarsus. I should have suspicion of base hearted less in a Man who Hud no Especial in Terest in the City of his birth or Resi exhilaration at Tho evidence of its Prosperity or its artistic embellish ments or ils intellectual advancement a noticeable Point. I have noticed that a Man never likes a City where to has not behaved Well people Wiio have bad u free Rido in Tho prison never like the City that fur Nisbet the vehicle. When i find Argos and Rhodes and Smyrna trying to prove themselves the Birthplace of Homer i conclude at once that Homer behaved Well. liked them and they liked him. To must not War on laudable City Pride or. With the idea of building our selves up at any time try to pull others Down. Boston must continue to Point to its fan nil Hail and to its common and to its Superior educational advantages. Philadelphia must continue to Point to its Independence Hull and its mint and its Girard College. Washing ton must continue to Point to its won Drous Capitoline buildings. If i should find a Man coming from any City hav ing no Pride in that City that City hav ing been the Placo of his nativity or now being the place of his residence j would feel like a King what mean thing Hao you done there what outrageous thing have you been guilty of that you do eel like the place i think we i Tako it for granted you Are interested in this Grout work of evangelizing the cities mid Sav ing the ought to toil with the sunlight in our faces. We Are not lighting n a miserable Bull run of do feat. To Are on our Way to final Vio tory. We Are not following the rider on the Blue horse leading us Down to death Ami darkness and doom but Tho rider on the White horse with the Moon under his feet Aud Tho stars of heaven for his Tiara Hail conqueror Hail i know there Are sorrows Aud there Are sins and Thero arc sufferings All around about us but us in some bitter cold Winter Day when we Are thrashing our arms around us to keep our thumbs from freezing we think of the warm Spring Day that will after awhile come or in the dark Winter night to look up Aud Seo the Northern lights Tho win Dows of heaven illuminated by Somo great Victory just so we look up from the night of suffering and sorrow and wretchedness in cur cities and we see a Light streaming through from the other Side and we know we arc on the Way to than that on Tho Way to a morning without i want you to understand All you who Are toiling for Christ that the castles of sin Are All going to to captured. Tho Victory for Christ in these great towns is going to be so Complete that not a Man on Earth or an Angel in heaven or a Devil in hell will dispute it. How do i know i know just As certainly As god lives and that this is holy truth. The old Bible is Lull of it. If the nation i9 to be saved of course All Tho cities Are to be saved. It makes a Groat difference with you and with me whether to Are toiling on toward a defeat or toiling on toward a Victory. A glorious time. Now in this municipal Elevation of which i speak i have to remark Thero will be greater financial Prosperity than our cities have Ever seen. Some people seem to have a morbid idea of the millennium and they think when the bet ter time comes to our cities and the world people will give their time up to psalm singing and Tho relating of their religious experience and As All social life will be purified there will be no hilarity and As All business will be purified there will to no Enterprise. There is no ground for such an absurd anticipation. In the time of which i speak where now one Fortune is Marto there will be a Hundred fortunes Mado. We All know business Prosperity de pends upon Confidence bet Veen Man and Man. Now when that time comes of which i speak and when All double dealing All dishonesty and All fraud Are gone out of commercial circles thorough Confidence will be established and there will to better business Dono and larger fortunes gathered and mightier successes achieved. The great business disasters of this country have come from the work of godless speculators and infamous Stook gamblers. The great foe to business is crime. When the right Shal have hurled Back the wrong and shall have purified the commercial code and shall have thundered Down fraudulent establish ments and shall have put into the hands of honest men Tho keys of business blessed Tun for Tho bargain makers. I am not talking an abstraction. I am not making guess. I am telling you god s eternal truth. In that Day of which i speak taxes will to a Mere nothing. No Jour bps Ness men arc Lux cd . City taxes co my taxes state taxes United states tuxes stamp taxis License taxes manufacturing taxis taxes taxes taxes i our business nun have to make u Small Fortune every year to pay their taxes. What fastens on our great Indus tries this awful loud crime individual and official we Honvo to pay the Board of Tho villains who Are incarcerated in our prisons. We have to take care of the orphans of those who plunged into their Graves through sensual indulgences. To have to support the municipal govern ments which Uro vast and expensive just in proportion As the criminal proclivities Are vast and tremendous. Who support the almshouses und police stations and All Tho machinery of Munici pal government the taxpayers. No More Cluie. But in the glorious time of which i speak grievous taxation will All Hutu ceased there will to no need of sup porting criminals there will be no criminals. Virtue will Hutc taken thu place of vice. There will be no orphan asylums for parents will to Able to Lei be a competency to their children. There will be no voting of Large sums of Money for some municipal improve ment which Money before they get to Tho improvements drops into the pock ets of those who voted it. No Oyer and Termidor kept up at vast expense to Tho people. No Impan Eling of juries to try theft and arson and murder and slander and blackmail. Better factories. Grander architecture. Finer equipage. Larger fortunes. Kroher opulence. Better churches. In that better time Ulso coming to those cities Christ s churches will to More numerous and Thoy will be larger and they will be Intro d voted to Tho gospel of Jesus Christ and they will accomplish greater influences for Good. Now it is often the Cuso that churches Uro envious of each other and Denom nations collide with each other and even ministers of Christ sometimes for get the Bond of brotherhood. But in Tho title of which i speak while there will to just us Many differences of opinion As there arc now Here will be no acc bit no hyper criticising no exclusive Ness. In our great cities Tho churches Aro not today Large enough to hold Moro than a fourth of the population. Tho churches that ure few of them Aro fully occupied. Tho average attendance in Tho churches of thu United states today is not 400. Now in the glorious time of which i speak there Are going to be vast churches mud they Are going to be All thronged with worshippers. Of what songs they will sing of what Earnest sermons they will preach i of what fervent prayers they will offer i now in our time what is called a fashionable Church is a place where a few people having attended very care fully to their toilet come and sit Down they do not want to be crowded they like a whole Cut to then if they have any time left from thinking of their stoic and from exam ining the style of the hat in front of them they sit and listen to u Sermon warranted to hit no Man s sins and Lis ten to music which is rendered by a choir warranted to sing tunes that no body knows. And then after an hour and a Hulf of indolent yawning they go Home refreshed. Every Man feels hot tor after he has had a Bleep in Many of the churches of Christ in our Day the music is simply a mockery. I have not a cultivated ear nor a cultivated voice yet no Man can do my sing ing for me. I have nothing to say against artistic music. The %2 or a i pay to hear any of the great Queens of song arc a Good investment but when the people assemble in religious convocation and Tho hymn is read and the Angels of god step from their throne to catch the music on their wings do not let us drive them away by our indifference. I have preached in churches where vast sums of Money were employed to keep up the music and it was As exquisite As any heard on Earth but i thought at the sume time for All matters practical i would prefer the Hearty out breaking song of a Back Woods methodist Camp meeting. Let one of these starve Ling fancy songs Sung in Church get up before Tho throne of god How would it seem stand ing amid the great do ologies of Tho re deemed let the finest operatic air that Ever went up from the Church of Christ get Many hours the Start it will be caught and passed by the to sunny of the Sabbath school children. I know a Church where the choir did Oil Tho sing ing save one Christian Man who through perseverance of the saints went right of and afterwards a com Mittee was appointed to wait on him and ask him if he would not please Stop singing As he bothered the choir. Let those Ranse to so nth who Divver knew out god but children of thu be Vonly Klug should break their Joys abroad. Praise be the lord. Let everything with breath Praise the in the glorious time coming in our cities and in the world Hostina will moot Hosanna and hallelujah hallelujah. How it will do done. In that time also of which i speak All the haunts of iniquity and crime and squalor will be cleansed and will boil Lumina ted. How is it to to done you nay perhaps by one influence. Perhaps i say by another. I will Tell you what is my idea and i know Lam right in it the gospel of the Sou of god i8 the Only Agency that will Ever accomplish this. A Gentl Mun in England had a theory that if the natural forces of wind and Tido and sushi to and wave were rightly applied and rightly developed it would make this whole Earth a Paradise. In a Book of great Genius and which rushed from edition to edition he said Fel Low men i promo o to show the Means of creating a Paradise within ton years whore everything desirable for human life May be had by every Man in super abundance without labor and without the whole face of nature shall be changed into Tho most Beautiful farms and Man May live in the most magnificent palaces in All imaginable refinements of luxury and in Tho most delightful to May accomplish without labor in one year More than hitherto could to Dono in thousands of years. From the houses to be built will be afforded the most Cul tured views that can be fancied. From the galleries from Tho roof and from the turrets May be seen gardens us far of the Eyo can see full of fruits and Flowers arranged in the Moat Beautiful order with walks colonnades Aque ducts panels Ponds Plains Mph Thea. Tors terraces fountains sculptured works pavilions gondolas places of popular amusement to lure the Eye and fancy. All this to be done by urging the water the wind und the Sunshine to their full lie goes on and gives plates of the machinery by which this work is to be done und he says he Only needs at Tho Start a company in which the shares shall to each and $100,000 or$200,000 shall to raised just to Mako a specimen Community and then this being formed the world will Seo its practicability und very soon $2,000,000 or $3,000,000 can be obtained and in ten yours the whole Earth will poem paradises. Tho plan is not so or Postor Ous As some i have heard of. But i will take no Stock in that company. I do not believe thut it will Ever to done in that Way by any mechanical Force or by any machinery that the human mind can put into play. It is to be done by Tho gospel of the Sou of omnipotent machinery of Jovo und Grace and Pardon and salvation. This is Tompar Adios the nations. Archimedes destroyed a Fleet of ships coming up the Harbor. You know How he did it to lifted a great sunglass history tells us and when the Alceo of ships curio up the bar Bor of Syracuse he brought to Bear this sunglass and he focused Tho Sun s rays upon those ships. Now Tho sails Are wings of fire the masts fall Tho vessels sink. Of my friends by the sunglass of tic gospel converging the rays of Tho Sun of righteousness upon the sins Tho wickedness of the world to will Mako them Blaze and expire. The Csc a fixed cities. In that Day cof which i speak do you believe there will be any Midnight Ca Rousal will there to any kicking off from Tho to Arlo Steps of shivering men dicant.-.? will there to any unwashed unfed Unco bed children will Thero to any blasphemies in the streets will there to any inebriated staggering past no. No wine stores. No Inger Beer saloons. Net distilleries where they make the three Xiv. No bloodshot Eye. No bloated Cheek. No instruments of ruin and destruction. No list pounded fore head. Tin grandchildren of that Wom an who goes Down the Street with by the boys that follow Hor will be Tho reformers und philanthropist and the Christian men and Tho honest merchants of our cities. Then what municipal governments too to will have in All the cities. Some cities Aro worse than others but in Many of our cities you Jost walk Down by the City Hall and look in at some of the rooms occupied by politicians and set to what a a i Kud , Igno rant besotted Crew City politics k often abandoned. Or they stand around t to City Hull picking their Teeth waiting for some emoluments of crumbs to fall to their feet writing All Day Ion and waiting All night Long. Who Are those wretched women taken up for drunkenness and carried up to. Ibe courts und put in prison of course what will you do with the grog shops that make them drink nothing. Who arc prisoners in Juil one of them stole a paid of shots. That boy stole a Dollar. This girl matched u purse. All of them crimes damaging society less than $20 or $30. But what will you do with the Guu Ibler who last night robbed the Young Man of $1,000? nothing. What shall be done with that one who Breaks through and destroys the purity of a Christian Home and with an adroit Ness and perfidy that beat the strategy of hell flings a shrinking shrieking soul int ruin nothing. What will you do with those who fleeced that Young Man getting him to Purlin Large sums of Money from Young Man who came to an officer of my Church and told Tho Story Aud frantically asked what he should do nothing. A to do Well to punish Small crimes but i have sometimes thought it would be better in some of our cities if the officials would Only turn out from the jails the Petty criminals the Little offenders. $10 Desper docs and put in their places some of the monsters of in in Juicy who drive their Roan Span through Tho streets so swiftly that honest Meu have to leap to get out of the Way of be ing run Over of the Damnable schemes that professed Christian men will some times engage in until god puts the Fin Ger of his retribution into Tho Collar of their Robe of hypocrisy and rips it Clear to the Bottom but All these wrongs will be righted. I expect to Livo to see the Day. I think i hear in Tho distance the rumbling of the King s Chariot. Not always in Tho minority is the Church of god going to be or Are Good men going to be. The streets Are going to be filled with regenerated populations. Three Hundred and sixty Bells rung in Moscow when one Princo was married but when righteousness and peace kiss each other take Ajer s pills and you will sleep better and Wake in better condition for the Day s work. Ayer s cathartic pills have no equal As a pleasant and effect Ual remedy for constipation bilious Ness sick headache and All liver troubles. They Are sugar coated and so perfectly prepared that they cure with out the annoyances experienced in the use of so Many of the pills on the Market. Ask your druggist for Ayer s cathartic pills. When other pills won t help you Ayer s is the Pill that will in All Tho Earth 10\00�"times 1g7�tt0 Bells shall strike the Jubilee. Poverty enriched linger fed. Crime banished leu Orenco enlightened. All the cities . In not this u cause Worth work tug in of Yon think sometimes it does not mount to much you toil on in your different spheres sometimes with great discouragement. People have not Faith und say it does not amount to any thing. You might As Well quit wily when Mose stretched his band Over the red sea it did not seem to mean anything especially. People oame out i suppose and said aha Somo of Thorn found out what be wanted to a he wanted the son parted. It did not amount to anything this stretching out of his hand Over the sea. But after awhile the wind blew All night from the East and the Waters wore Guth cred into a glittering Palisade on either Side and the Billows reared As god pulled Back on their Crystal bits. Wheel into Lino o Israel March March pearls crashed under foot. Flying Spray gathers into Rainbow Arch of Victory for Tho conquerors to March under. Shout of hosts on the Beach answering the shout of hosts amid Sou. And when Tho last line of israelite re Meh Tho Beach Tho cymbals Clup. And the Shields Clang and the Waters Rush Over the pursuers and Tho Swift fingered winds on the White keys of Tho foam play the grand March of Israel delivered and Tho awful Dirge of egyptian overthrow. So you und i go Forth and All Tho people of god go Forth and they stretch Forth their hand Over Tho sea the boil ing sea of crime and sin and wretched Ness it do it t amount to anything people Eniy. Does t it god s winds of help will after awhile begin to blow. A path will be cleared for Tho army of Christian philanthropists. The path will be lined with the treasurer of Christian Beneficence and a said the Jubilee orator it was said of us that we Wero the inhabitants of a one horse today we 6tuud with the stigma removed. As we look Forth on our streets and see the merry bicycle and the dignified gasoline Carriage speeding to and fro we say with conscious Pride that to Aro a one horse town no longer. The last horse has been banished and we Aro a modern up to Date no horse town of the first class. enquire or Independent order of Mee Aumea in North America.
