Talmage a recent Sermon was a dark sayings a Harp a a and his text psalms xlix., verse 4 a i will open my dark sayings a following is the Sermon the world is full the inexplicable the impassable the unfathomable the insurmountable. We can not go three Steps in any direction without coming up against a hard Wall mystery riddles paradoxes profound cities labyrinths problems that we can not solve hieroglyphics that we can not decipher anagrams we can not spell out sphinxes that will not speak. For that reason David in my text proposed to take up some these somber and dark things and try to set them to Sweet music. A i will open my dark sayings a so i look off upon society and find people in unhappy conjunction circumstances and they do not know what it Means and they have a right to ask Why is this and Why is that and i think i will be doing a Good work by trying to explain some these strange things and make you More Content with your lot and i shall Only be answering questions that have often been asked me. Or that we have All asked ourselves while i try to set these mysteries to music and open my dark sayings a Harp. Interrogation the first Why does god take out this world those who Are useful and whom we can not spare and leave alive and in Good health so Many who Are Only a nuisance a positive injury to Tho world i thought i would begin with the very toughest All the seeming inscrutable. Many the most useful men and women die at thirty forty years age while you often find useless people alive at sixty and seventy and eighty. John careless wrote to Bradford who was soon to be put to death saying a Why doth god suffer me and such other caterpillars to live that can do nothing but consume the alms the Church and take away so Many worthy workmen in the ii Ord a Vineyard a similar questions Are often asked. Here Are two men. Tho one is a Noble character and a Christian Man he chooses for a lifetime companion Ono who has been tenderly reared and she is worthy him and he is worthy her As merchant Farmer professional Man Mechanic artist he toils to educate and rear his children he is succeeding but he has not yet established for his family a full competency he seems absolutely indispensable to that household but one Day before he has paid off the mortgage his House he is coming Home through a Strong Northeast wind and a chill strikes through him and four Days pneumonia end his earthly career and the wife and children go into a struggle for shelter and food. His next door neighbor is a Man who though Strong and Well lets his wife support him to is round at the grocery store some general loafing place in the evenings while his wife sews his boys Are imitating his example and lounge and swagger and swear All the use that Man is in that House is to rave because the Coffee is cold when he comes to a late breakfast to Sav cutting things about his wife a looks when he furnishes nothing for her wardrobe. The Best thing that could happen to that family would be that Many a funeral but he declines to die he lives and and . we have All noticed that Many the useful Are Early Cut off while the parasites society have great vital tenacity. I take up this dark saying my Harp and give three four thrum Tho string in the Way surmising and hopeful guess. Perhaps the useful Man was taken out the world because he and his family were so constructed that they could not have endured some great Prosperity that might have been just ahead and they altogether might have gone Down in Tho vortex worldliness which every year swallows up ten thousand households. And so he went while he was Humble and consecrated and they were by the Severi ties life kept close to Christ and fitted for usefulness Here and High seats in heaven and when they meet at last before the throne they will acknowledge that though the Furnace was hot it purified them and prepared them for an eternal career glory and Reward for which no other kind life could have fitted them. On the other hand the useless Man lives to fifty sixty seventy years because All the Easo he Ever can have he must have in this world and you ought not therefore begrudge him his earthly longevity. In All the Ages there has not a single Loafer Ever entered Hesiben. There is no place for him there to hang around. Not in the temples for they Are full the most vigorous Alert and rapturous worship. Not the River Bank for that is the place where the conquerors recline. Not in the Gates because there Are multitudes entering and we Are told that at each Tho twelve Gates there is an Angel and that celestial guard would not allow the place to to blocked up with idlers. If Tho Good and useful go Early rejoice for them that they have so soon got through with human life which at Best is a struggle. And if the useless and bad stay rejoice that they May be out in the worlds fresh air a Good Many years before their final incarceration. Interrogation the second Why do so Many Good people have so much trouble sickness bankruptcy persecution the three Black vultures sometimes putting their fierce beaks into one set jangled nerves i think now a Good Friend i once had. was a consecrated Christian Man an elder in Tho Church and As polished a Christian gentleman As Ever walked Broadway. First his general health gave out and he hobbled around a Cane an old Man at forty. After a while paralysis struck him. Having by poor health been compelled suddenly to quit business he lost what property he had. Then his Beautiful daughter died. Then a son became hopelessly demented. Another son splendid mind and commanding presence resolved that he would take care his fathers household but under the swoop yellow fever at Fernandina fla., he suddenly expired. So Yon know Good men and women who have had enough troubles you think to crush fifty people. No worldly philosophy could take such a trouble and set it to music play it 011 violin Fiuty dulcimer Sac but but i dare to open that dark saying a gospel Harp. You wonder that very consecrated people have trouble did you Ever know any very consecrated Man woman who had not had great trouble never. It was through their troubles sanctified that they were made very Good. If you find any where in this City a Man who has now and always has had perfect health and never lost a child and has always been popular and never had business struggle misfortune who is distinguished for goodness pull your wife for a Telegraph messenger boy and Send me word and 1 will drop everything and go right away to look at him. There never has been a Man like that and never will be. Who Are those arrogant self conceited creatures who move about without sympathy for others and who think More a St. Bernard dog an Alderney cow a Southdown sheep Ora Berkshire pig than a Man they never had and trouble the trouble was never sanctified. Who Are those men who listen with moist Eye As you Tell them suffering and who have a pathos in their voice and a kindness in their manner and an excuse an alleviation for those gone astray ? they Are the men who have graduated at the Royal Academy trouble and they have Tho diploma written in wrinkles their own countenance. My my what heartaches they had what tears they have wept what injustice they have suffered the mightiest influence for purification and salvation trouble. No Diamond fit for a Crown until it is cat. No wheat tit for bread till it is ground. There Are Only three things that can break off a chains a Hammer a file a fire and trouble is All three them. The greatest writers orators and reformers get much their Force from trouble. Wii at gave to Washington Irving that exquisite tenderness and pathos which will make his books favourites while Tho English language continues to be written and spoken an Early Heartbreak that he never once mentioned and when thirty years after the death Matilda Hoffman who was to have been his Bride her father picked up a piece pm Etc Broider and said a that is a piece poor Matilda a workmanship a Washington Irving Sank from hilarity into silence and walked away. Out that lifetime grief the great author dipped his Penis mightiest reinforcement. A a calving a institutes religion a than which a More wonderful Book was never written by human hand was begun by the author at Twenty five years acted Paul could not have spared one last one prison Ono stoning one anathema Ohe poisonous Viper from Tho hand Ono Shipwreck. What is True individuals is True nations. The errors the american revolution gave this country this Side the Mississippi River to Independence and the conflict Between England and France gave the most thi9 country West the Mississippi to the United states France owned it but Napoleon fearing that England would take it practically made a present to the United states for he received Only $15.000,000�? Louisiana Missouri Arkansas Kansas Nebraska Iowa Minnesota Colorado Dakota Montana Wyoming and the Indian territory. Out the fire the american revolution came this country East the Mississippi out the european War came that West the Mississippi River. The British Empire Rose to its present overpowering grandeur through a Gunpowder plot and Guy Fawkes conspiracy and Northampton insurrection and Walter Raleigh a beheading and Bacons bribery and Cromwell a dissolution parliament and the Battles Edge Hill and Grantham and Newberry and Marston Moor and Naseby and Dunbar and Sedgemoor and execution Charles Tho first and London plague and London fire and London insurrection and Rye House plot and the Vicissitudes centuries. the Earth itself before it could become an appropriate and Beautiful residence for Tho human family had according to geology to to washed by Universal deluge and scorched and made incandescent by Universal fires and pounded by Sledge Hammer icebergs and wrenched by earthquakes that split continents and shaken by volcanoes that tossed mountains and passed through Tho catastrophes thousands years before Paradise became possible and the Groves could shake out their Green banners and the first Garden pour its carnage color Between the Gihon and hid Dekel. Trouble a Good thing for the rocks a Good thing for nations As Well As a Good thing for individuals. So when you push against me with a Sharp interrogation Point Why do Tho Good suffer i open the dark saying a Harp and though 1 can neither play an Organ Coronet Hau boy Bugle clarinet i have Takon some lessons 011 the gospel Harp and if you would like to hear me 1 will play you these a fall things work together for the Good those who love a now no chastening for the present see meth to be joyous but grievous nevertheless afterwards it yield Etli All possible fruits righteousness unto them which Are exercised a sweeping May endure for a night but Joy co Moth in Tho Itiat a Sweet thing is a Harp and i wonder not that in 4y ales the country my ancestors Tho Harp has become the National instrument and that they have festivals where great prizes Are offered in the Competition Between Harp and Harp that weird a Sebastian Erard was much his tune Bent Over this corded and vibrating Triangle and was not satisfied until to had Given it a Compass six octaves from e to e with All the Semitones that when King Baul was demented the son Jesse came before him and putting his fingers among the charmed strings Tho Harp played the Devil out the crazed Monarch that in heaven there shall be harpers harping with the harps. you will not blame inc for opening the dark saying the gospel Harp. Your harps be trembling saints Down from the Willows take loud to the Prais got love divine bid every string awake interrogation third Why did a Good god let sin and trouble come into the world when he might have kept them out my reply is he had a Good reason. He had reasons which he could no More make us undo staud in our finite state than the father starting out some great and elaborate Enterprise could make the two year old child in its Arm chair comprehend it. One was to demonstrate what grandeur character May be achieved Earth by conquering evil. Had there been no evil to conquer and no trouble to console then this universe would never have known an Abraham a Moses a Joshua a Ezekiel a Paul a Christ a Washington a John Milton a John Howard and a million victories which have been gained by Tho consecrated spirits All Ages would never have been gained. Had there been no Battle there would have been no Victory. Nine tenths Tho anthems heaven would never have been Sung. Heaven could never have been a thousandth part the heaven that it is. I will not say that i am glad that sin and sorrow did enter but i do say that i am glad that after god has Given All his reasons to an assembled universe he will to More honoured than if sin and sorrow had never entered and that the a fallen celestial will be outdone and will put Down their trumpets to listen and it will be in heaven when those who have conquered sin and sorrow shall enter As it would be in a Small singing school Earth if Thalberg and Gottschalk and Wagner and Beethoven and Reinberger and Schumann should All at once enter. The immortals that have been chanting ten thousand years before the throne will say As they close their librettos a to if we could Only sing like that a but god will say to those who have never fallen and consequently have not been redeemed a you must be silent now you have not Tho qualification for this Anthem a so they sit with closed lips and folded hands and sinners saved by Grace take up the Harmony for the Bible says �?o110 Man can learn that song but the Hundred and forty and four thousand which were redeemed from the a great Prima Donna who can now do any thing with her voice told me that when she first started in music her teacher in Berlin told her she could be a Good Singer but a certain Noto she could never reach. A and then a she said a i went to work and studied and practice Fory eurs until 1 did reach but the song the sinner redeemed Tho Bible says the exalted harmonises who have never sinned could not reach and never will reach. Would you like to hear me in a very poor Way play a snatch that tune i can give you Only one bar the music this gos Tel Harp a unto him that hath loved us and washed us from our sins in his own blood and hath made us Kings and priests unto god and the Lamb to him be glory and Dominion forever and Ever but before leaving this interrogatory Why god lets sin come into the world ? let me say that great Battles seem to be nothing but suffering and outrage at the time their occurrence yet after they have been a Long while past we can see that it was better for them to have been fought namely Balamis Inkermann Toulouse Arbela Agincourt Trafalgar Blenheim Lexington Sedan. So now that the great Battles against sin and suffering Are going we can see mostly that which is deplorable. But Twenty thousand years from now standing in glory we shall appreciate that heaven is better off than if the Battle this worlds sin and suffering had never been projected. But now 1 come nearer Home and put a dark saying the gospel Harp a style question that is asked a million times every year. Interrogation the fourth Why do i have it so hard while others have it so easy Why do i have so much difficulty in getting livelihood while others go around with a full Porter Nonanie Why must i Wear these Plain clothes while others have to push hard to get their wardrobes closed so crowded Are they with Brilliant attire Why should i have to work so hard while others have three Hundred and sixty five holidays every year they Arci All practically one question. I answer them by saying it is because the lord has his favourites and he puts extra discipline upon you and extra trial because to has for you extra glory extra enthronement and extra facilities. That is no guess mine but a divine say so a whom the lord Loveth he a Well a says some one a i would rather have a Little less in heaven and a Little More Here. Discount Rny heavenly Robe ten per cent and let me now put it a fur lined overcoat put me in a less gorgeous room the House Many mansions Aud let me have a House Here in a better no no god is not going Rob heaven which is to be your residence for nine Hundred quadrillion years to fix up your earthly abode which you will occupy at most for less than a Century and where you May perhaps stay Only ten years longer Only one year perhaps a month More. Now you had better cheerfully let god have his Way for you see he has been taking care folks for near seven thousand years and knows How to do it and can see what is Best for you better than you can yourself. Done to think you Are too insignificant to be divinely cared for. It was said that Diana Tho goddess could not be present to keep her Temple at Ephesus from burning because she was attending upon the birth him who who was to be Alexander the great. But i Tilyou that your god and my god is so great in Small things As Well As Large things that lie could attend the Cradle a babe and at the same time the burning a world. And god will make it All right with you and there is one song that you will sing House fronting the Royal Plaza right by Tho Imperial Fountain the Heights overlooking the River life the chariots salvation halting at your door while those who visit you Are More than conquerors and those who Are Kings and Queens unto god for Ever. You my brother and you my sister who have it so hard Here will have it so Fine and grand there that you will hardly know yourself and will feel disposed to dispute your own identity and the first time i see you there i will cry out a did no to i Tell Yon so when you sat Down there in the Brooklyn Tabernacle and looked incredulous because you thought it too Good to be True a and you will answer a you were right the half was not told me a so this morning i open your dark saying despondency and complaint Ray gospel Harp and give you just one bar music for i do not pretend to be much a player. A the Lamb which is in Tho midst the t Hrone shall Lead them to living fountains water and god shall wipe away All tears from their but 1 must confess i am a Little perplexed How some you Good christians Are going to get through the Gate because there will to so Many Thero to Greet you and they will All want to shake hands at once and will All want the first kiss. They will Havo heard that you arc coming and they will All press around to Welcome you and will want you to say whether you know them after being so Long parted. Amid the Tussel and Romp reunion i will Tell you whose hand Welcome you had better first clasp and whose Cheek is entitled to Tho first kiss. It is the hand and the Cheek him without whom you would never have got there at All the lord Jesus the Darling the skies As he cries out a i have loved thee with an everlasting love and the fires could not Burn it and the floods could not drown then you my dear people having no More use for my poor Harp which 1 used to open your dark sayings and Whoso chords sometimes snapped despoiling the symphony you will take Down your own harps from the Willows that grow by Tho eternal water courses and play together those celestial airs some Tho names which Are entitled a the King in his Beau a a a Tho land that was off a a Jerusalem the Golden a a Home again a a the grand March god a a Tho life and As the last dark curtain mystery is forever lifted it will be As though All the oratorios that Wero Ever heard had been rolled into Ono and a Israel in Egypt and �?ojephtha�?T9 daughter and Beethoven so overture in cd and Ritter a first sonata in d minor and Tho a a creation and the a a Messiah had been blown from the lips one trumpet been invoked by the sweep Ono Bow had dropped from Tho vibrating chords one Harp.

The Bullet is partly warmed by the friction rubbing against the barrel the Rifle but doubtless it also receives some heat by Tho friction the air and some from the consequence its percussion against the target. You need not then wonder How it is that when Lam checked by your atmosphere i too am heated. Remember that i move a Hundred times As swiftly As your Rifle Bullet and that the heat developed n the checking the motion Tho body increases enormously when the velocity the body increases. Your mathematicians can calculate How much. They Tell you that the heat produced will As they say vary As the Square the velocity. Tog Ivean Illus t ration what this Means suppose that two rifles were fired at a target and that the sizes Tho bullets and Tho ranges were the same but that Tho charge in Ono the rifles was such that its Bullet had twice the initial velocity Tho other. Then the mathematician will say that the heat developed during the fight the rapid Bullet might be not alone twice but even four times As great As that developed in Tho slower Bullet. If we would fire two bullets one which had three times Tho Speed the other then under similar circumstances the heat generated Ere the two bullets were brought to rest would be nine times greater for the More rapidly flying Bullet than for the other Ono. Now you can readily com. Pretend the immense Quantity heat that will have been produced Ere friction could deprive to a Speed Twenty Miles a Magazine. Facts about diamonds.

Strange As it May seem to Tho uninitiated no two diamonds Are exactly alike taut each has a virtue and value peculiarly its own. It is just As rare to see two individuals alike in face form and feature As it is to see two diamonds Tho idea also that a dealer in Diamond ran Tell by looking at a Gem its exact value is All nonsense.
