Dr. Talmage lias selected as his subject for today a topio or the greatest Interest and timeliness viz, "Comfort For Business Men," the text being; Isaiah xl, 2, "Speak ye comfortably to Jerusalem." .. . . What an awful six weeks in commercial circles! The crashing of banks from San Francisco to New York and from ocean to ocean. The complete uncertainty that has halted all styles of business tor three months and the pressure of the money market tor the last year nave put all bar- gain makers at their wit's end. Some of the best men in the land have faltered: men whose hearts are enlisted In every good work and whose hands have blessed every great charity. The church of God can af ford to extend to them her sympathies and plead before heaven with all availing prayer. '1 be schools such men bare established, the churchesthey have built, the asylums and beneficent institutions they have fosteredwill be their eulogy: long alter their banking Institutions are forgotten. Such men can never faVL They have their treasures In banks that never break and will be millionaires forever. The stringency of the money market. I am glad to say, begins to relax. ' May the wisdom of Almighty God come down upon our national legislature at their convening next month in Washington and such re sults be reached as shall restore confidence and revive trade and multiply prosperities! Yet not only now in the time of financial disaster, but all through life, our active business people have a struggled and I think it will be appropriate and useful for me to talk about their trials and try to offer some curative prescriptions. THE TEMPTED MERCHANT. ... In the first place, I have to remark that great many of our business men feel ruinous trials and temptations coming to them from small and limited capital in business. It is everywhere understood that it taken sow three or four times as much to do business well as once it did. Once a few hundred dollars were turned into goods the merchant would be his own store weeper, his own salesman, his own book keeper. He would manage all the affairs himself, and everything would be net profit. Wonderful changes have come. Costly apparatus, extensive advertising. exorbitant store rents, heavy taxation, ex pensive agencies, are only parts of the demand made upon our commercial men. And when they have found themselves in such circumstances with small capital they nave sometimes been tempted to run against the rocks of moral and financial destruction. This temptation of limited capital has ruinedpen in two ways. Sometimes they tve mruiiK. aownunaertne temptation. 1 bey have yielded the battle before the first shot was fired. At the first hard tun they surrendered. Their knees knocked together at the fall of the auctioneer's ham tner. They blanched at the financial DeriL They did not understand that there is such thing as heroism in merchandise, and that there are Waterloos of the counter. and that a man can fight no braver battle with the sword than he can with the yard- EUCJC Their souls melted in them because sug ars were up when they wanted to buy and down when they wanted to sell and unsalable goods were on the shelf and bad debts in their ledger. The gloom of their countenances overshadowed even their dry goods and groceries.' Despondency, coming irom umuea capital, blasted them. Oth crs have felt it In a different way. They have said: "Here I have been trudging tuong. x nave Deen trying to be honest all these years. I find it is of no use. Now it is make or break." The small craft that could have stood the stream is put out beyond the lighthouse on the great sea of speculation. Stocks are the dice with which he gambles. He bought for a few dollars vast tracts of west- era land. Some man at the east living on a fat homestead meets this gambler of for tune and is persuaded to trade off his estate here for lots in a western city with large avenues and costly palaces and lake steamers smoking at the wharves and rail trains coming down with lightning speed from ev ery oirection. There It Is all on paper! The city has never been built nor the railroads constructed, but everything points that way, and the thing will be done as sure as you live. And that is the process by which many have been tempted through limita tion or capital Into labyrinths from which tney could not be extricated. I would not want to chain honest enter prise. I would not want to block up any of the avenues for honest accumulation that open up for young men. On the contrary, I would like to cheer them on and rejoice when they reach the goal, but when there are such multitudes of men going to ruin for this life and the life that is to come through wrong notions of what are lawful spheres of enterprise it is the duty of the ministers of religion and the friends of all young men to utter a plain, emphatic, unmistakable protest. These are the influences that drown men in destruction and perdition. THE FEVERISH THIRST FOR GAIX. Again, a great many of our bfeiness men are tempted to over anxiety and care. You know that nearly all commercial businesses are overdone in this day. Smitten with the love of quick gain, our cities are crowded with men resolved to be rich at all hazards. They do not care how money comes. Our best merchants are thrown into competition with men of more means and less conscience, and if an opportunity of accumulation be neglected one hour some one else picks It up. From January to December the struggle goes on. Night gives no quiet to limbs' tossing in restlessness nor to a brain that will not 8 too thinking. Tha dreams are harrowed by imaginary loss and flushed with imaginary gains. Even the Sabbath cannot dam back the tide of anxiety, for this wave of worldliness dashes clear over the churches and leaves its foam on Bibles and prayer books. Men who are living on salaries or by the culture of the soil cannot understand the wear and tear of body and mind to which our merchants are subjected when they do not know but that their livelihood and their business honor are dependent upon thuncrrtaintiea of the next hour. - This excitement of the brain, this corroding care of the heart, this strain of effort that exhausts the spirit, sends a great many of our best men in midlife into the grave. They find that Wall street does not end at the East river. It ends at Greenwood! Their life dashed out against money safes. They go with their store, on their backs. They trudge like camels, sweating from Aleppo to Damascus. They, make their life a crucifixion. Standing behind desks and counters, banished from' the fresh ah weighed down by carking cares, they art so many suicides.; , - BELIAJrCB OS DITOI AID, Oh, I wish I could today rub out some a these lines of care: that 1 could lift some o the burdens from the heart; that I could give relaxation to some of these wort muscles. . It is time for you to begin to tak it a little easier. Do your best and thet trust God for the rest. Do not fret. God manages all the affairs of your life, and hi manages them for the best. Consider tin lilies they always have robes. Behold th fowls of the air they always have nests .Take a long breath. Bethink betimes that God did not make you for a pack horse Dig yourselves oat from among the hogs hads and the shelves, and in the light oi the holy Sabbath day resolve thatrou will give to the winds your fears and your fret fulness and your distresses. - You brought nothing into the world, and it is very cep tain you can carry nothing out. Having food and raiment, be therewith content. The merchant came home from the store. There had been great disaster there. He opened the front door and said, in the midst of his family circle: "I am. ruined. Every thing is gone. I am all ruined." His wife said, "I am left," and the little child threw up its hands and said, "Papa, I am here." Toe aged grandmother, seated in the room, said, "Then you have all the promises ol God beside, John." . And be burst intc tears and said: "God forgive me, that 1 have been so ungrateful. I find I have a great many things left, God forgive me." Again I remark that many of our busi ness men are tempted to neglect their home duties. How often it is that the store and the home seem to clash, but there ought not to be any collision. It is often the case that the father is the mere treasurer of the family, a sort of agent to see that they have dry goods and groceries. The work of fam ily government be does not touch. Once at twice in a year he calls the children up on a babbath afternoon when he has a half houi he does not exactly know what .to do with. and in that halt hour he disciplines the children and chides them and corrects theii faults and gives them a great deal of good advice and then wonders all the rest of the year that his children do not do better when they have the wonderful advantage of that semiannual castigation. xne lamuy table, wmcn ought to be the place for pleasant discussion and cheerfulness, often becomes the place of perilous expedition. If there be any blessing asked at all, it is cut off at both ends, and with the band on the carving knife. He counts on his fingers, making estimates in the interstices of the repast. The work done, the hat goes to the head, and he starts down the street, and before the family have risen Irom the table he has bound up another bundle of goods and says to the customer, Anything more I can do for you today. surf" DUTY TO ONE'S FAMILY. A man has more responsibilities than those which are discharged by putting com petent instructors over his children and giving them a drawing master and music teacher. The physical culture of the child will not be attended to unless the father looks to it. He must sometimes lose his dignity. He must uulimber his joints. He must sometimes lead them out to their sports and games. The parent who cannot forget the severe duties of life sometimes to fir the kite and trundle the hoop and chase the ball and jump the rope with the children ought never to have been tempted out of a crusty and unredeemable soli tariness. If you want to keep your children away from places of sin, you can only do it by making your home attractive. You may preach sermons and advocate reforms and denounce wickedness, and yet your children will be captivated by the glittering saloon of sin unless you can make your borne brighter place than any other place on earth to them. Oh, gather all charms into your house! If you can afford it, bring books and pictures and cheerful entertainments to the household. But. above all. teach those children, not by half an hour twice a year on the Sabbath day, but day alter day, and every day teach them that religiou is a great gladness that throws chains of gold about the nik; that it takes no spring from the foot, no blitheness from the heart, no sparkle from the eye, no ring from the laughter, but that "her ways are ways of pleasantness, and all her paths are peace." I sympathize with the work being done in many of our cities by which beautiful rooms are set. apart by our Young Men's Christian association, and I pray God to prosper them in all things. But I tell you there is something back of that and before that. We need .more happy, consecrated cheerful Chris tain homes in America. LIMITED TSES OF MOXET. Again, I remark that a great many of our business men are tempted to put the at tainment of money above the value of the soul. It is a grand thing to have plenty of money. The more you get of it the bet ter, if it come honestly and go usefully. For the lack of it sickness dies without medicine, and hunger finds its coffin in the empty bread tray, and nakedness shivers for lack of clothes and fire. W hen I hear a man In canting tirade against money a Christian man as though it had no possi ble use on earth, and he had no interest in it, I come almost to think that the heaven that would be appropriate for him would be an everlasting poorb ousel While, my friends, we do admit there is such a thing as a lawful use of money a profitable use of money let us recognize also the fact that money cannot satisfy a man's soul; that it cannot glitter in the dark valley; that it cannot pay our fare across the Jordan of death; that it cannot unlock the gate of heaven. There are men in all occupations who seem to act as though they thought a pack of bonds and mortgages could be traded off for a title to heaven and as though gold would be a lawful tender in that place where it is so common that they make pavements out of it. Salvation by Christ is the only salvation. Treasures in heaven are the only incorrupt ible treasures. Have you ever ciphered out in the rule of loss and gain the sum, "What shall it profit a man if he gain the whole world and lose his Boulf" However fine your apparel "It is only 3 o'clock In tho afternoon. i have lost that battle, but we have time enough to win another. Charge upon the foe!" -. Though the meridian of life has passed with you, and you have been routed in many a conflict, give not up in discouragement. There are victories yet for you tc gain. But sometimes monetary disastei comes to a man when there is something Id his age or something in his health or something in his surroundings which make him know well that he will never get up again. In 1837 it was estimated that for many years previous to that time annually there had been 80,000 failures in the United States. Many of those persons never recovered from the misfortune. But let me give a word of comfort In passing: The sheriff may sell you out of many things, but there are some things of which he cannot sell yon out. He cannot sell out youi health. He cannot sell out your family. He cannot sell out your Bible. He cannot sell out your God. He cannot sell out youi heaven! You have more than you have lost. Sons and daughters of God, children of an eternal and all loving Father, mourn not when your property goes. The world is yours,- and life is yours, and death is yours, and immortality is yours, and thrones of imperial grandeur are yours, and rivers of gladness are yours, and shining mansions are yours, and God is yours. The eternal God has sworn it, and every time you doubt it you charge the king of heaven and earth with perjury. Instead of complaining how hard you have it, go home, take up your Bible full of promises, get down pn your knees before -God and thank him for what you have, instead of spending so much time in complaining about what you have not. THE ARK OF SAFETY. Some of yoa remember the shipwreck of the Central America. This noble steamer had, I think, about 600 passengers aboard. Suddenly the storm came, and the surges trampled tho decks and swung into the hatches, and t here went u p a hundred voiced death shriek. The foam on the jaw of the wave. The pitching of the steamer its though it Were leaping a mountain. The dismal flare of the .signal rockets.1 The long cough of tho steam pipes. The hiss of the extinguished furnaces. The walking of God on the wave! The steamer went not down without a struggle. As the passengers stationed themselves in rows to bail out the vessel, hark to the thump of the buckets, as men unused to toil, with blistered hands and strained muscle, tug for their lives. There is a sail seen against the sky. The flash of the dis tress gun sounded. Its voice is heard not, for it is choked in the louder booming of the sea. A few passengers escaped, but the steamer gave one great lurch and was gone! So there are some men who sail oh prosperously in life. All's well, all's well. But at last some financial disaster comes aeuroclydou. Down they go! the bottom of this commercial sea strewn with shat tered hulks. But because your property goes, do not let your soul go. Though all else perish, save that. , For I have to tell you of a more stupendous shipwreck than that which I have just mentioned. God launched this world 0,000 years ago. It has been going on under freight of mountains and immortals, but one day it will stagger at the cry pffire. The timbers of rock will burn, the mountains flame like' masts and the clouds lixe sans in the judgment hurricane, luen God shall take the passengers off the deck. and from the berths those who have long been asleep in Jesus, and he will set them far beyond the reacB of storm and peril. But how many shall go down, that will never be known until it shall be announced one day in heaven, the shipwreck of a world! Ob. my dear hearers, whatever you lose, though your houses go, though your lands go, though all your earthly posses sions perish, may God Almighty, through the blood of the everlasting covenant, save all your souls. Biley Is a Bachelor. A correspondent of the Chicago News- Record sends to that paper the following: I have read with interest what nas been said pro and con' upon the disputed claim that Mr. James Whitcomb liiley is a married man. The following letter was written to me Jan. SO, 1S93: Dear Booster Fbiekd Your kindly note, addressed to the Virginia during my late brief stop at Chicago, has at last reached me her at my old home at the Deniaon. It missed we there because I stopped, not at the Virginia, but at the Victoria though I was dined once at the V. Had I been fortunate enough to receive your welcome word while there bo assured I should Uhvu tried eagerly to find yon though, as a rule, I'm thesubllmest "hoodoo" that ever vainly tried to find anything on earth. Of course I do remember your good brother and yourself at Wabash and the one delightful little visit at your pleasant home. Now 'ra old, sadder, though no more marrieder than then just as confirmed and condemned an old bachelor as ever! My old bach chum, Mr. Walker, even. Is married, and very probably your old bach brother, but alas! your old bach Hoosier friend and neighbor, like Mr. Tennyson's Justly celebrated brook, goes on forever!" Very truly and gratefully. J. W. Riijer. Surely we could not ask a stronger proof of our charming friend's celibacy than this direct testimony from himself. WOMAN'S INTELLECTUAL GROWTH. Tha Benefit of the World's Fair Congress , Broadly Estimated. The' woman of the present must be woman of affairs. It is no longer sufficient that her children shall be well taught and well bred; that her house shall be well or dered and her social obligations discharged in full. The world still exacts fidelity to all the domestic relations, and it demands much more. There is an unvoiced sentiment to the effect that now, since the universities and colleges have opened their doors to give young girls thorough intellectual training, they must apply that training not alone within the home, but without in the state. , The new conditions have produced a new type, and it is a type that writes, talks and makes speeches with do detriment to its dignity or its womanli ness. Instead of reproaching this so called emancipated woman, fathers, husbands and brothers commend her position, indorse her opinions and stand by her with all the old time chivalry which we were assured would be withheld when women were no longer intellectually and financially dependent. One of the most delightful features of the congresses that have een held thus far in the series proposed during the summer and autumn has been tho approval of men who nave Atcenaea me sessions to appiaua auditors,, talk it all over afterward and marvel at the progress of the world. Many have urged their wives to "let things go at home a little" and attend the meetings, the like of which will not be enjoyed, soon again. There have not been, as might have been expected, complaints of neglected socks and underdone dinnersof household affairs going awry and children suffering from lack of maternal oversight. The husbands and fathers have been con tent with a little laxity in the domestic government for the Bake of the mental broadening which they knew would result. As auditors, they have listened patiently to dull papers and have enthusiastically applauded the bright ones, congratulating the speakers afterward. They have generally admitted the excellence of that which was good and condoned the faults of that which was mediocre of poor. There have been instances where the husbauds ued the reluctant wives to take some more ac tive part in the proceedings, feeling a proud certainty- that their better halves were equal to the occasion, whatever it might be. As for the women, it has been an im measurable advantage to them. They have learned self control, composure and defer ence to others and have realized that the success of oue is the success of all. The social features of the congresses have also had their advantages. Some of the beautiful houses of Chicago have been thrown open with generous hospitality, and the country delegates have had an opportunity to study their art treasures, to meet polished and gracious women of the world upon common ground. It has been an occasion of mutual benefit those whose opportunities have been more liberal learn ing to respect that worth which comes to the social function ' in a plain gown and a plainer bonnet, brains and good breeding winning recognition that mere money can not command among cultivated people. It is hardly possible to estimate the far- reaching result of these great conferences. The women of the cities learn, as they could not possibly learn in any other way, that a metropolis does not necessarily absorb all knowledge, refinement and intellectual grace, while their country sisters perceive that courtesy, kindness and consideration are not indigenous to rural communities. but that they thrive as well amid the bricks and mortar of the town. Last of all, the congresses will furnish an immense amount of material for conversation and thought. They will suggest new lines of study, and the impetus they will give to universal culture cannot be reckoned. In the1 latter particular the congresses will not be excelled even by the great material exhibit in Jackson park. Chicago Inter Ocean. . They Defined Old Maid. It was mv cood fortune to bo present at reading lesson given by one of the middle I classes in a public school the othpr da v. when the word "bachelor" occurring in the course of it, the teacher desired a defini- j tion. The first boy called upon decided I that it meant "an old man what hain't married," but another changed this to "any man that ain't married." This prompted their teacher, who is young, bright and mischievous at times, to inquire what they thought of when they heard people talk of "old maids.". One young hopeful calmly announced that any woman over 20 was an okl maid, and the class agreed. Then from behind the dfik came the question, "Am I an old maid? Only two pupils were consistent. The remainder were too gallant to say "Yes," and excitedly answered, "No'm, you ain't" marked emphasis on the ."you." But oue young diplomat thought is wasn't Funny Scenes In Cbarcb. "Some of the funniest things do happen )n our church," a devoted Episcopalian churchman said recently in a group of women who were discussing various affairs. Our serious forms and ceremonies seem to attract the ludicrous by mere force of depraved contrast. Then, too, things that would, not seem so absurd iu other churches become, outrageously laughable in ours. For instance, one hot summer day a fussy woman in the congregation "bustled out of her pew and up into t he chancel to give the perspiring rector an immense palm leaf fan. The poor man had to take it, and that stu pendous fan in conjunction with his ethereal priestly robes and solemn office made the congregation titter audibly. .Not long ago a diverting feature appear ed in our baptismal service. Twin infants were presented at the font to be' christened Grover and Ruth Cleveland respectively. Whether political meditation drew the rec tor's mind aside or whether the broad dimensions of the double baptism affected his grasp on realities is not known, but be bent reverently over the female child and began in appropriate tones, 'Grover Cleve land Lawrence, I baptize thee" at this interesting point the mother of the duplex testimonial to the administration twitched the rector's sleeve and exclaimed in audibly excited tones: No, no! That's Ruth!' "The rector, without tho quiver of amus cle, approached the undertaking afresh. Ruth was properly adjusted to her illustrious name, and Grover had to wait till his turn came."
