To Lumen in this Sermon draws graphic illustrations of one of the Sublimes theories of religion Muu oly vicarious Saer fico. His text was hebrews in 23, Quot without shedding of blood is to John g. Whittier the inst of the great school of american Jas is Tomt made Liliu last Quarter of a Century Hail shut asked my in the White mountains Oue a touring after prayers in which i Hud Given out Cowper s famous hymn Assiut Tho a Fountain filled with blood Quot Quot do you re ally holier i there is a literal application of the blood of Christ to the soul a my negative reply then is my be Rativo reply now. The Bible statement agrees with All physicians and All physiologists and All scientists in saying Tomt Tho blood is the life and in the Christian religion it menus simply Tomt Christ a life was Given fur our life. Hence All this talk of Moil who Sny the Bible Story of blood is disgusting and that they Don t want what they cell a Quot Slaughter House religion Quot Only shows their incapacity or unwillingness to look through Tho Figura of speech toward Tho thing signified. Tho Liloon Tomt on Tho darkest Friday Tho world Over saw oozed or trickled or poured from the brow and the Side and the hands and the feet of the illustrious sufferer Hack of Jerusalem in a few hours coagulated Aud dried up and forever Digap a need and if Liuzi bad depended nil the application of the literal blood of Christ there would not have been a soul saved for the last 18 centuries.

Something distressingly Odd. Smia thing wildly err nitric. A Sola in episode in Tho world s history when 1 could take you out into this and Eforo Sundown Point you to live Hundred cases of substitution and voluntary suffering of Oue in behalf of another. Overwork. At 2 of clock tomorrow afternoon go among the places of business or toil. It will to no difficult thing for Yon to find men who by their looks show you that they lire overworked. They arc prematurely old. They arc hastening rapidly toward their decease. They have goo through crises in business that shattered their nervous system and pulled on the brain. They have a shortness of breath and a Oniu in Tho Buck of the head mid at night nit insomnia that alarms them. Why Aro t Bey dredging at business Early and late for fun no. It would lie difficult to extract any amusement out of that exhaustion. Because they Are avaricious in Many cases no. Because their own personal expenses Are lavish no. A few Hundred dollars would meet nil their wants. Tito simple fart is Tho Man is enduring All that fatigue and exasperation and Wear and tear to keep Liis Home prosperous. There is an invisible line reaching from lint store from that Bank from that shop from that scaffolding to a quiet scene a few blocks a Way a few Miles away. And Oliero is Tho secret of thut business endurance. To is simply the Champion of a Homestead for which lie wins bread Aud wardrobe and education and Prosperity and in Sueh Battle 10,000 men fall. Of ten in Siposs men whom 1 Bury nine die of overwork for others. Some sudden disease finds them with no Power of resistance and they Are gone. Life for life. Blood for bleed. Suhslin Ntina at 1 o clock tomorrow morning the hour when slumber is most uninterrupted Aud most profound walk amid the dwelling Bouses of the City. Here and there you will find n dim Light because it is the household custom to keep a subdued Light burning but most of Tho houses from base to top Are As dark As though uninhabited. A merciful god has sent Forth Tho archangel of sleep and he puts his wings Over the City. But yonder is a Clear Light Hunting Aud outside on the window casement is a Glass or Pitcher containing food for a Siek child. Tho food is Sot ill the fresh air. This is the sixth night that Mother has sat up with that sufferer. She los to the lust Point obeyed the physicians prescription not giving drop too much or too Little or a moment too soon or too late. She is very anxious for she has in Riel three children with Tho same disease and Slio prays and weeps Eacle prayer and sob ending with a kiss of Tho Pale Cheek. By dint of kindness she gets the Little one throng i the ordeal. After it is All Over the Mother is taken Down. Brain or nervous fever sets in and one Day she leaves the convalescent child with a Mother s Blessing and goes up to join the three in the kingdom of heaven. Life for life substitution Tho fact is that there Are nit us counted number of mothers who after they have navigated a Large family of children through All the diseases of infancy Aud gut them fairly started up the flowering slope of boyhood Anil girlhood have Only strength enough loft to die. They fade away. Some Call it consumption. Some Call it nervous prostration. Some Call it in tar Mittet or malarial indisposition. But i Call it martyrdom of the Domestic Circle. Lite for life. Blood for blood. Substitution i substitution. Or perhaps the Mother lingers Long enough to Sec a son get of the wrong Toad and jigs former kindness becomes cough reply when she expresses audio to about him. But she goes right on. Looking carefully after his apparel remembering Liis every birthday with some memento Aud when to is brought Home worn out with dissipation nurses him till lie gets Well Aud starts him again and Hopes and expects and prays and counsels and suffers until her strength gives out und she fails. She is going Aud attendants bending Over her Pillow ask her if she has any message to leave Aud she makes great Effort to say something but out of three or four minutes of indistinct utterance they can catch but three words Quot my poor boy Quot Tito i the Field the night after the Battle Mill got edit not. They were homesick Anil re Civ no message from their loved ones. They did in barns in Bushes in ditches Tho Buzzards of Tho summer Lent Llin Only attendants of their obsequies. No Oue but thu infinite god who knows everything knows Tom ten thousandth part of the length and breadth and depth and Bright of the anguish of the Northern and Southern Bat tic Fields. Why did Tieso fathers leave their children and go to the front and Why did those Young men postponing Tho marriage Day Start out into thu probabilities of never coming Back for the country they died. Life for life. Ulc xxx for blood. Substitution i for life. But we need not go so far. What is that Monument in Greenwood it is to the doctors who full in the Southern epidemics. Why go were there not enough sick to be attended in these Northern latitudes Oil yes but lie doctor puts a few medical looks in his Valise Aud some vials of Medicine nud leaves his patients hero in the lauds of other physicians and takes Tho rail train. Before lie gets to the infected regions lie pusses crowded rail trains regular ant extra taking the flying and affrighted populations. arrives in a City Over which a great Storror is brooding. goes from lunch to Couch fooling of the pulse Ami studying symptoms und proscribing Day after Day night after night until a fellow physician says Quot doctor Yon Hail hitter go Homo and rest. You look but he cannot rest while so Many arc suffering. Of and on until some morning finds him in a delirium in which he talks of Home anti then rises Anil says he must go and look after those patients. Lie is told to lie Down hut he tights his attendants until lie Falls Hack and is weaker and weaker awl Dies fur people with whom to had no kinship and far away from Liis own family and is hastily put away in a stranger s Tomb Aud Only the fifth part of a line tells us of his sacrifice his name just mentioned among five. Yet lie has touched the farthest height of Sublimity in Tomt three weeks of humanitarian service. To goes straight As Alt Arrow to the Lipsom of him who said "1 was sick and be visited life for life. Blood for blood. Substitution i lit the Legal profession i see the Samo principle of self sacrifice. In 1s-ig William Freeman n pauper Zed Aud idiotic negro was at Anguin n. Y of trial for murder. Hud slain the Antiro Van nest family. The foaming Wrath of the Community could be Jept off him Only by armed constables. Who would Volunteer to lie his counsel no attorney wanted to sacrifice i popularity by such a ungrateful task. All were silent save out a Young lawyer with feeble voice that could hardly to heard outside Tho . Pale and thin and us Kwapil. It was William ii. Seward who saw that the Prisow r was idiotic awl irresponsible and ought to to put in i Asylum rather than put to death the heroic counsel uttering these Beautiful words Quot i speak now in the hearing of a people who Bubo prejudged prisoner and condemned me for pleading in Liis behalf. I is a convict a pauper a negro without intellect sense or emotion. My child with an affectionate smile disarms my careworn fare of its frown whenever i Cross my threshold. The beggar in the Street obliges me to give because to says a god bless you a i pass. My dog caresses me with fondness if i will but smile of him. My horse recognizes to when i fill his Manger. What Reward what gratitude what sympathy and affection can i expect Here there Tho prisoner sits. Look at him. Look at the assemblage around you. Listen to their ill suppressed censures awl their excited fears and Tell Tuc where among my neighbors or my fellow men where even in Bis heart i can expect to find a sentiment a thought not to Sav of Reward or of acknowledgement or even of recognition gentlemen you May think of this Chi Deco what you please bring in what verdict you can hut x ass Everate before heaven and you that to Tho Best of my know dec awl belief the prisoner at Tho does not at this moment know Why it is thut my Shadow Falls of Yon instead of Liis the Gallows got its victim but the postmortem examination of to poor creature showed to All the surgeons nud to All the world that the Public was wrong that William h. Seward was right nud that hard study step of obloquy in the Auburn courtroom was Tho first step of the stairs of Fame up which to wont to the to a Ortoli Thione step of till top that last denied him through the treachery of american politics. Nothing Hubli mar was Ever seen ill a american courtroom than William in Seward without Reward standing to tween the my of the populace awl the loathsome imbecile. Substitution a Nln term a Pencil. In the realm of thu Fine arts there was is rent Krable an instance. A Brilliant but Painter. Joseph William Turner was met by a Volley of abuse from All to Art galleries of la rope. His paintings which have Sinoto won Tho applause of All civilized nations Quot the fifth Plagne of Egypt Quot Quot fishermen of a Lee Shore in squally weather a Quot Calais pier a a Tho Sun rising through Mist and a a dido building Carton get a were then targets for critics to shoot at. In defense of this outrageously abused Man a Young author of 24 yours just one year out of College came Forth with Bis pen and wrote the Ablest and most famous essays on Ait that Tho world Ever saw or Ever will see John Ruskin s modern for 17 years this author fought Tho Battles of the maltreated artist and after in poverty Aud broken Beart Edness the Painter bad died und the Public tried to undo their cruelties toward him by giving him a big funeral and burial in st Paul a Cathedral Bis old time Friend took out of a tin Box 19,000 pieces of paper containing drawings by the old Painter and through Manv Wear and uncompensated months assorted and arranged them for Public observation. People say John rns Kitt in Liis old Days is Cross misanthropic and morbid. Whatever Lui nitty do Tomt lie ought no to do tune whatever he May say Lintl he ought not to say Between now Aud his go nth to will leave this world inso Hont us far of it has any capacity to pay Litis in Lior s pen for its chivalric and Christian defense of a Pixie Painter s Pencil. John Tuskin for William Turner. Blood for blood. Substitution what an exalting principle this which leads one to Sofii r for another nothing so kindles enthusiasm or awakens eloquence or Al Tiews poetic Canto or moves nations. The principle is the dominant one in our religion Christ Tho Martyr Christ the celestial hero Christ Tho defender Christ the sul Rstituto. No new principle for it was As old is human nature but now on a grander wider higher duo per and More world resounding scale. Tito Shepherd boy its a Champion for Israel with n Sling toppled tbs giant of Philistine Braggadocio in the dust but Here is another David who for All the armies of churches militant and triumphant hurls the Goliath of perdition into defeat Trio crash of Liis Brazen Armor like a explosion at hell Gate.

But hero is another to Trio altar Trad no hand arrests Trio Sharp edges of laceration tied Deuth Aud the universe Shivers and quakes nud recoils Puiul groans at thu Storror. Furies lying n Tirone. All Good men have for centuries been trying to Tell whom this substitute was like Anil every comparison inspired and uninspired evangelistic prophetic apostolic and human Falls Short for Christ was the great unlike.

But put together Adam and Noah nud Meleh Sedeo Aud Joseph and muses and Joshua until a Mitsem and a Solomon and Jonah until they would not make t fragment of a Christ a Quarter of a Christ the half of a Christ or the Millionth part of a Christ. To forsook a throne and sat Down of his own Footstool. To came front the top of glory to Tho Bottom of humiliation and changed a circumference Seraphic for a circumference diabolic. Once waited Quot a a by Angels now hissed at by brigands.

Striko to with All thy glittering shafts o eternal Justice Roll Over me with All thy surges be oceans of sorrow Quot Aud Tho thunderbolts struck him from above and the seas of trouble rolled up from beneath Hurricane after Racimo and Cyclone after Cyclone and then and there in presence of heaven and Earth and hello Yea All worlds witnessing the Price the bitter Price the transcendent Price the awful Price the glorious Price Trio t infinite Price the eternal Price was paid that scl6 is free. Light on the question. Tomt is what foul Means that is what i mean that is what All those rho have Ever had Leteir heart changed mean by i glory in this religion of blood. I am thrilled As i Seo the suggestive color in sacramental end whether it be of burnished Silver set on cloth immaculately White or rough fwu from Wood set of Able in log hut meeting House of Tho wilderness. Now i am thrilled As i see the altars of ancient sacrifice Crimson with the blood of tits slain , and Leviticus is to not so much the old testament us the new. Now i Sec Why the destroying Angel passing Over Egypt in Tho night spared All those houses that had blood sprinkled on their doorposts. Now i know what Isaiah Means when he Speaks of Quot one in red apparel earning with dyed garments front Bose tvs. A and who the apocalypse menus when it describes a heavenly chieftain Whoso Quot vesture was dipped it blood a Aud what Peter the apostle menus when he Speaks of the a precious blood that clean Seth from All sin a and what the old to runt decrepit missionary Paul Means when in my text he Clies Quot without shedding of blood is to by that blood you and i will be saved or never saved at All. Glory be to god that the Hill Back of Jerusalem was the Battle held on which Christ achieved our Liberty. The most exciting und overpowering Day of one summer was the Day i spent on to Battlefield of Waterloo. Starting out with the to Ruig train from Brussels we arrived in about a hour of that famous spot. A son of one who was in the Battle und who bad he ird from his father a thousand times the whole scene recited accompanied us Over the Field. There stood Tho old Hou Gomont Chaut Cun Trio Wall dented until a clutched Anil broken and shattered by or upshot Aud Cannon Hail. Oliero is Tho Well in which 800 dying and dead were pitched. Oliero is the Chapel with the head of Tho infant Christ shot off. There tire Tho Gates at a a tire for Many hours English until French armies wrestled. Y Outler wore Tho 100 guns of Trio English anti Tho 200 guns of the French. Yonder Tho Hussars fled for Tho Woods. Yonder was the Ravine of Oharu where Tho French cavalry not knowing there was a hollow in Tho ground rolled Over and Down troop after troop tumbling into our awful mass of suffering Hoof of kicking Borscs against brow and breast of captains Aud colonels Natl private soldiers the human and Tho let eastly groan kept up until Tho Day after All was shovelled under because of the Mulidor arising in thut hot month of Juno. Tim lion unit Trio Lamb. Quot Thero a said our guide Quot the High loud regiments Lay Down on their faces waiting for the moment to Spring upon Tho fix. In Ebato Ehurd 2,000 men were Cut to pieces. Here stood Wellington with White lips and up that Knoll Rodo marshal Noy of Lis sixt i horse five living been shot under him.

Around those Woods Blucher was looked for to to Cufo Roo the English and just in time lie came up. Y Ouder is the Field where Napoleon stood his Arm through the reins of Tho horses bridle dazed and insane trying to go Keene from a Battle that wont on from 25 minutes to 12 of clock of the 18th of june until 4 o clix a when the English seemed Defeated Anil their cried out Quot boys can you think of giving Way remember old England a Aud Tho ride turned and at 8 o clock in the evening the Man i f destiny who was called by his troops Ohl two Hundred thousand turned away with broken heart Aud the fail of centuries was decided. No it Tyler u great Morial has been reared tie n hundreds of feet High a Mound at the expense of millions of dollars and Many years in rising and on the top is the great belgian lion of Bronze nud a grand old lion it is. But our in at Waterloo was in Palestine. There came a Day when All hell Rode up h d by Apoll Yott und the Captain of our salvation confronted them alone the rider of the White horse of the Appeal Pyscz going out against Tho Black Hirse cavalry of death and the battalions of the Demoniac and the Myr quid cams of darkness. From 12 o clock at Neon to 8 o clock in the afternoon the greatest Battle of the universe went of. Eternal destinies being decided. All hell pierced on chieftain and rite Louzos struck him until brow and Cheek and shoulder and hand Mill foot were Incarnadine with oozing life to fought of until to gave a final stroke Aud the commander in chief of hell Aud All his forces fell Back in everlasting ruin and the Victory is ours. Aud of the Mound that celebrates the Triumph we Plant this Day two figures not in Bronze or Iron or sculptured Marble but two figures of living Light the lion of Judah s tribe and the Lamb that was slain. Expanded Metal. I r. Nuns u und thirteen. The Safe return of the Fram is regarded As a Knockdown blow to the 13 superstition. There Wero 13 men in her Crew of whom the thirteenth joined at the last moment. All returned Safe and Well and none of them was ill at any Timo or a cause of anxiety. Then too it was on the 18tli of August that Nansen reached Home and on the Samo Day the Fram got quit of the ice seven Mouths to a Day after on Jun. 13 she had struck a southerly current. To these coincidences it is added that three litters of 13 pups were born in Nansen a pack of Eskimo dogs though a greater number than 0 to a litter is unusual and that just 13 publishers bid for his Book after his s round table. _ a sprain. A simple and efficacious remedy for a sprained wrist is to let cold t liter run upon it every morning for. Omo minutes holding the wrist As Low beneath the month of the tap As possible so that the water May have a Good fall. After Olirs has been done Bandage it tightly letting the Bandage remain until Tho next ablution the sprain will to re Ducor in a few Days. _ the hit of the season. Is made by Ayers Sarsaparilla. Just at this season when Spring and its debilitating Days Aro with us there is Noth Inglis eayers a Sarsaparilla to put new life into Tho sluggish system. I sweeps away Tho dullness Lack of appetite languid Ness and pain As a Broom sweeps away cobwebs. It does not Brace up. It builds up. Its Benefit is lasting. D o you feel run Down ? take Ayers Sarsaparilla Fiti us Lac Wui it to now x it in Concrete Willii Ami l Arll Llonita. The old building materials bricks mortar Ami Limber were found in Many ways unsuitable for tall erections of the still Skelin to Oil skyscraper Type und new combi various of Iron und Concrete Wero adopted giving Tho greatest amount of strength with least weight and enabling the builders to occupy Tho smallest amount of Wall space give the greatest oui out of window space and economize space inside by lighter floors and inner Walls a two Inch thick inner Wall of Concrete und steel for instance being As Strong As the old nine Inch Wall of Brick. The latest improvement in this science of construction is that known As Tho expanded Metal system. The words Quot expanded Metal do not fully explain themselves to the Reader who hits not seen Tho material. The word Quot exp Audi must be understood in the dictionary pc do of to open out to stretch to spread. A Sheet of steel of Uny thickness up to u Quarter of an Inch and any length or Width say fior 8 feet in length nud i or 2 feet in Width is put into the expanding machine a remarkable device which constitutes the Patent. It is then punched through with rows of flits covering the whole surface of the Sheet with a Width of a Quarter or half an Inch a Mil each Slit is separated Lengthwise from the next Slit of the line by perhaps an such of steel. The machine then stretches the Slit cd steel Width Wise perhaps to six times its original Width and when it leaves Tho machine it represents roughly speaking a six foot Square piece of steel lace work with Diamond shaped meshes. In Tho process of stretching the steel lace work corresponding with Cotton threads in an Ordinary lace curtain is turned of Edge to an Angle of 45 degrees thus greatly increasing its bearing strength Anil firmness. Tho process of using this expanded steel is to imbed it in Concrete in a similar Way to the old system of Iron rods but the steel network being Many Rimes stronger than the Iron rods or any other system less Concrete May be used to effect the required strength. As compared with Concrete alone the use of this expanded steel adds to its strength from eight to ten times Over. The importance of this multiplied strength Aud less weight in Tho Caso of flooring for instance for tall erections such of the Many storied buildings in America or elsewhere or those recent erections called Eiffel towers Aud especially Dock warehouses whose floors and Walls have to Bear no Moas weights cannot be exaggerated.
