Alert Business Men Who Are In Affilirs of the Soul—More Common Sense Needed In Church Buildine and In Building Cp the Christian Character. 1S97, by American Press Association.] WASHINGTON, Dec. 5.—Dr. Talmage in this discourse advocates more practical -wisdom in efforts at doing good and assails some of the absurdities in church architecture and management. The text is Luko xvi, S, "The children of this world are in their generation •wiser than the children of light," That is another way of saying that Christians aro not so skillful in the manipulation of spiritual affairs as •worldlings are skillful in the management of temporalities. I see all around me people who are alert, earnest, concentrated and skillful in monetary matters, who in tho affairs of the soul are laggards, inane, inert. The great want of tho world is more common sense in matters of religion. If one-half of the skill and forcefnluess employed in financial affairs was employed in disseminating the truths of Christ and trying to make the world better, within ten years the last Juggernaut would fall, the last throne of oppression upset, the last iniquity tumble and the anthern that was chanted over Bethlehem on Christmas night -would be echoed and re-echoed from all nations and kindred and peo< pie, "Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will to men Some years ago, on a train going toward tho southwest, as the porter of the sleeping car was making up the berths at the evening tide, I saw a man kneel down to pray. Worldly people looked on as much as to say, '' What does this mean?" I suppose the most of the people in the car thought that the man was either insane or that he was a fanatic, but ho disturbed no ono when he knelt and he disturbed no one when he arose. In after conversation with him I found out that he was a member of a church in a northern city, that be was a seafaring man, and that he was on his way to New Orleans to take command of a vessel. I thoxigiit, then, as I think now, that ten such men—men with such courage for God as that man had—ten such men would bring the whole city to Christ. A thousand such men would bring this whole land to God. Ten thousand such men, in a short time, would bring tho whole earth into the kingdom of Jesus. That he was successful in worldly affairs, I found out That he was skillful in spiritual affairs, you are well persuaded. If men had the courage, the pluck, tho alertness, the acumen, the industry, the common sense in matters of tho soul, that they have in matters of the world, this would be a very different kind of earth in which to live. More Common Sense In Chnrclx Building. In tho first place, my friends, we •want more common sense in the building and conduct of churches. The idea of adaptiveness is always paramount in any other kind of smictnre. If bankers meet together and they resolve upon putting up a bank, the bank is especially adapted to banking purposes. If a manufacturing company puts np a building, it is to be adapted to manufacturing purposes. But adaptiveness is not always the question in the rearing of churches. In many of our churches we -want more light, more room, more ventilation, more comfort. Vast sums of money are expended on ecclesiastical structures, snd men eit do-wn in them, and you ask a man how he likes the church. He says, "I like it very well, but I can't hear." As though a shawl factory were good Oh, my friends, -we -want more common sense in the rearing of churches! There is no escu.se for laot of light when the heavens are full of it, no excuse for lack of fresh air when the world swims in it. It ought to be an expression not only of our spiritual happiness, but of our physical comfort, when we say: "How amiable are thy tabernacles, O Lord God of hosts! A day in thy courts is better than a thousand. " Again, I remark we want more common sense in the obtaining of religious hope. All men understand that in order to succeed in worldly directions they must concentrate. They think on that one object, on that one subject, until their mind takes fire with the velocity of their own thoughts. All their acu- iuen, all their strategy, all their wisdom, all their common sense they put in that one direction, and they succeed. But how seldom it is trrie in the matter of seeking after God. While no man expects to accomplish anything for this world without concentration and enthusiasm how many there are expecting after awhile to get into the kingdom of God without the use of any such means. The Mountain of God's Love. A miller in California many years ago picked up a sparkle of gold from the bed of a stream which turned his mill. He held up that sparkle of gold until it bewitched nations. Tens of thousands of people left their homes. They took their blankets aad their pickaxes and their pistols and went to the wilds of California. Cities sprang tip suddenly on the Pacific coast. Merchants put aside their elegant apparel and put on the miner's garb. All the land was full of the talk about gold. Gold in the eyes, gold in the ears, gold in the wake of ships, gold in the streets —gold, gold, gold! Word comes to us that the mountain of God's love is full of gold; that men have been digging there and have brought up gold, and amethyst, and carbuncle, and jasper, and sardonyx, and chrysoprasus, and all the precious itonas out of which the walls of heaven •were builded. Word comes of a man who, digging in that mine for one hour, has brought up treasures worth more than all the stars that keep vigil over our sick and dying world. Is it a bogus company that is formed? Is it undeveloped territory? Oh, no, the story is true! There are hundreds and thousands of people who would be willing to rise and testify that they have discovered that gold and have it in their possession. Notwithstanding all this, what is the circumstance? One would suppose that the announcement would send people in great excitement up and down our streets, that at midnight men would knock at your door, asking how they may get those treasures. Instead of that many of us put our hands behind our back and walk up and down in front of the mine of eternal riches and say, "Well, if lam to be saved I will be saved, and if I am to be lost I will be lose, and there is nothing to do about it." Why, my brother, do you not do that way in business matters? Why do you not tomorrow go to your store and sit down and fold your arms and say, "If these goods are to be sold, they will be sold, and if they are not to be sold they will not be sold; there is nothing for rue to do about it.'' No, you dispatch your agents, you print your advertisements, you adorn your show windows, you push those goods, you use the instrumentality. Oh, that men were as •wise in the matter of the soul as they are wise in the matter of dollars and cents! Not One Conscript. This doctrine of God's sovereignty, how it is misquoted and spoken of as though it were an iron chain which bound us hand and foot for time and for eternity, when, so far from that, in every fiber of your body, in every faculty of your mind, in every passion of your soul, you are a free man—a free man—and it will no more tomorrow be a matter of choice whether yon shall go to business through Pennsylvania avenue or some other street, it will be no more a matter of choice with you tomorrow whether yon shall go to Philadelphia or New York or stay at home, than it is this hour a matter of free choice whether you will accept Christ or reject him! In all the army of banners there is not one conscript. Men are not to be dragooned into heaven. Among all the tens of thousands of the Lord's soldiery there is not one man but will tell you: "I chose Christ—I wanted him. I desired to be in his service. I am not a conscript—I am a volunteer." Oh, that men had the same common sense in the matters of religion that they have in the matters of the world, the same concentration, the same push, the same enthusiasm—in the one case a secular enthusiasm, in the other a consecrated enthusiasm! Again, I remark we want more common sense in the building up and enlarging of our Christian character. There are men who have for 40 years been running the Christian race, and thev have not run a quarter of a mile No business man would be willing to have his investments unaccumulative. If yon invest a dollar, you expect that dollar to come home bringing another dollar on its back. What would yon think of a man who should invest $10,000 in a monetary institution, then go off for five years, make no inquiry in regard to the investment, then come back, step up to the cashier of the institution and say, "Have you kept that $10,000 safely "that I lodged with you?" but asking no question about interest or about dividend? Why, you say, "That is no common sense." Neither is it, but thai is the way we act in matters of the sonL We make a far more important inTesi- ment than f 10,000. We invest onr soul Is it accmnulative? Are we growing in euranlation we were as wise in the matters of the soul as we are in the matters of tbe world! The pnrpo«e of the Bible. How little common sense in tbe reading of the Scriptures! We get any other book, and we open it, and we say: "Now, what does this book mean to teach me? It is a book on astronomy; it will teach me astronomy. It is a book on political economy; it will teach me political economy." Taking up this Bible, do we ask ourselves what it means to teach? It means to do just one thing —get the world converted and get us all to heaven. That is what it proposes to do. But instead of that we go into the Bible as botanists to pick flowers, or we go as pugilists to get something to fight other Christians with, or we go as logicians trying to sharpen our mental faculties for a better argument, and. we do not like this about the Bible, and we do not like that, and we do not like the other thing. What would you think of a man lost on the mountains? Night has come down, he cannot find his way home, and he sees a light in a mountain cabin. He goes to it. He knocks at the door. The mountaineer comes out and finds the traveler and says: "Well, here I have a lantern. You can take it and it will guide you o.u the way home." And suppose that traveler should say: "I don't like that lantern. I don't like the handle of it. Therefore 10 or 15 things about it I don't like. If you can't give me a better lantern than that I won't have any?" Now, God says this Bible is to be a lamp to our feet and a lantern to our GOLD DUST WASHING POWDER for everything but making shawls! The voice of the preacher dashes against the pillars. Men sit down under the shadows of the Gothic arches and shiver and feel they must be getting religion or some- jh^pn'ftlio tbcr fnol m grace? Are we getting better? Are we getting worse? God declares many dividends, bat we do not collect them; we do not ask about them; we do not •want thenu .Ob, that in, tbia caitpr Largest p;u-b:ise—Kretitest. economy. Made only bv THE X."K.

We stop and say we do not like this about it, and we do not like that, and we do not like the other thing. Oh, how much wiser we would be if by its holy light we found our way to our everlasting home! Then we do not read the Bible as we read other books. We read it perhaps four or five minutes just before we retire at night "We are weary and sleepy, 60 somnolent we hardly know which end of the book is up. We drop our eye perhaps on the story of Samson and the foxes, or upon some genealogical table, irnpcrtant in its place, but stirring 110 more religious emotion than the announcement that somebody begat somebody else, and he begat somebody else, instead of opening the book and saying, "Now I must read for my immortal life; my eternity is involved in this book.'' Common Sense In Prayer. How little \ve use common sense in prayer! V7e say, "O Lord, give me this," and "0 Lord, give me that," and "O Lord, give me something else," and we do not expect to get it, or, getting it, we do cot know we have it. "We have no anxiety about it. We do not watch and wide for its coming. As a merchant.you telt fa raph or you write to gome other city for a bill of goods. You say, "Send me by such express or by such a steamer or by such a rail train." The day arrives. You send your wagon to the depot or to the wharf. The goods do" not come. You immediately telegraph : "What is the matter with those goods? "We haven't received them. Send them right away. We waut them now. or we don't want them at all." And you keep writing, and you keep telegraphing and keep sending your wagon to the depot or to tho express office or to the wharf uutil you get the goods. In matters of religion we are not so wise as that. We ask certain things to be sent from heaven. We do not know whether they come or not. We have not any special anxiety as to whether they come or not. We roay get them and may not get them. Instead of at 7 o'clock in tbe morning saying, "Have I got that blessing?" at 12 o'clock noonday asking, "Have I got that blessing?" at 7 o'clock in the evening saying, "Have I received that blessing?" and not getting it, pleading, pleading, begging, begging, asking, asking until you get it. Now, my brethren, is not that common sense? If we ask a thing from God, who has sworn by his eternal throne that he will do that which we ask, is it not common sense that we should watch and wait until we get it? But I remark, again, we want more common sense in doing good. Oh, how many people there are who want to do good, and they are dead failures. Why is it? They do not exercise the same tact, the same ingenuity, the same stratagem, the same common sense in the work of Christ that they do in worldly things; otherwise they would succeed in this direction as well as they succeed in the other. There are many men who have an arrogant way with them, although they may not feel arrogant in their soul, or they have a patronizing way. They talk to a man of the world in a manner which seems to say: "Don't you wish you wers as good as I am? Why, I have to look clear down before I can see vou, you are so far beneath ma " That manner always disgusts, always drives men away from the kingdom of Jesus Christ instead of bringing them in. Working Xatnrally For the Gospel. "When I was a lad, I was one day in a village store, and there was a large group of young men there full of rollicking and fun, and a Christian man came in, a verv good Christian man, and without any introduction of the subject and while they were in great hilarity said to one of them, "George, what is the first step of wisdom?'' George looked up and" said, "Every man to mind his own business." Well, it was a very rough answer, but it was provoked. Be- ligion had been burled in there as though it were a bombshell. We must be natural in the presentation of religion to the world. Do you suppose that Mary in her conversations with Christ lost her simplicity or that Paul, thundering from Mars hill, took the pulpit tone? Why is it; people cannot talk as naturally in prayer meetings and on religions subjects as they do in worldly circles? For no one ever succeeds in any kind of Christian work unless he works naturally. We want to imitate the Lord siio i>luci«d_a toe "grass of the field. " "vv s all want to imitate him who talked with farmers about the man who went forth to sow and talked with the fishermen about the drawn net that brought in fish of all sorts, and talked with the vine dresser abouc tbe idler in the vineyard, and talked with those newly affianced about tho marriage supper, and talked with the man cramped in money matters about the two debtors, and talked with tbe woman about the yeast that leavened the whole lump, and talked witb the shepherd about the lost sheep. Oh, we might gather even the stars of the 'sky and twist them like for.get- menots in the garland of Jesus! We must bring everything to him—the wealth of language, the tenderness of sentiment, the delicacy of morning dew, the saffron of floating cloud, the tangled surf of tbe tossing sea, the bursting thunder guns of the storm's bombardment. Yes, every star must point down to him, every heliotrope must breathe his praise, every drop in the summer shower must flash his glory, all the tree branches of the forest must thrum their music in the grand march which shall celebrate a world redeemed. Now, all tbis being so, what is the common sense thing for you and for me to do? What we do, I think, will depend upon three facts—three great facts: . The Only Sure Time. The first fact, that sin has ruined ns. It has blasted body, mind and soul. We want no Bible to prove that we are sinners. Any man who is not willing to acknowledge himself an imperfect and & ^ to be argued with. We all feel that sin has disorganized our entire nature. That is one fact. Another fact is that Christ came to reconstruct, to restore, to revise, to correct, to redeem. That is a second fact. The third fact is that the only time we are sure Christ will pardon ns is the present. Now, what is T,he common sense thing for us to do in view of these three facte? You will all agree with me to <piit sin, take Christ, and take him uow. Suppose some business man in whose skill you had perfect confidence should tell you that tomorrow, Monday morning, between 11 and 1& o'clock, you could by t> certain financial transaction make i?5,000. but that on Tuesday perhaps you might make it, but there would not be any positiveness about it, and on Wednesday there would not be so much, and Thursday less, Friday less, and so on less and less—when would yon attend to the matter? Why, your common sense would dictate, "Immediately I will attend to that matter, between 11 and 12 o'clock tomorrow, Monday morning, for then I can surely accomplish it, but on Tuesday I may not, and on Wednesday there is less "Mamma," said a little child to her mother when she was being put to bed at night, "mamma, what makes your hand so scarred and twisted and unlike other people's hands?" "Well," said the mother, "my child, when you were younger than you are now, years ago, one night after I had put you to bed, I heard a cry, a shriek, up stairs. I camo np and found the bed was on fire, and you were on fire, and I took hold of yon, and I tore off the burning garments, and while I was tearing them off an.\ trying to get you away I burned »v. hand, and it has been scarred and twisted ever since and hardly looks any more like a hand, but I got that, my child, in trying to save you." O man, 0 woman, I wish today I could show you the burned hand of Christ—burned in plucking you ont of the fire, burned in snatching you away from the flame. Aye, also tbe burned foot, and tbe burned brow, and the burned heart—burned loryou. "By his Btripes ye are healed."
