Hi the fofeiioon Itov, Ur.Tultmitfodellv ' <stcd an eloquent sermon, tho text bo< Uiff taken from GouesiB 83 : xvtj, stvllt: «'A«d the floUl of ttttb.fon, which wns irt Afiiehpolith, whloh was before Stature, tho field, tiiitl tho cave which was therein, uml nil tho trees tlmt •were In tho (lold, that were In all the bowlers round about, wcro made sure «mfx> Abraham." At thlft Eiistor .service I nsk and an-; *wcr what tuny Room tt novel question, tmtat will,b,o..found, before I got through, a iirnotleal tmd useful and iccmemlous question: What will res- iirwsctlon dny do for the cemeteries? First, I remark, It will bo their super- ,nal bcttUtUiontloH. A t certain seasons .ilia customary In all lands to strew ilowors over the mounds of the departed. It may have been suggested by the foot th'tvt Christ's tomb, was In a garden. And when 1 wiy gnrden Iclo tiot mean a purdeu of these latitudes. 'Tho. late frosts of *\*"\n« u»"l the early trosts of uutumii lire so near each other Uml there are only a few months of flowers in tho field. All tho flowers wo sec to-duy hud to be petted am! •coaxed and put under shelter, or they vvouHl not have blootuod at all. Ihoy are the children of tho conservatories. Hut at this season and through tlio most of the year, the Holy Lnnd te » u .ablush with floral opulence. Von Ilnd nil the royal fumilv ot (lowers there, sonic Unit you supposed indigenous to tho far north, and others .itidltfcuous to the far south-tho daisy .and hyacinth, crocus and anemone, tulin and water lily, geranium and ranunculus, mignonette and sweet •marjoram. In the college at Heyrout you may sec Dr. Post's collection of .about eighteen hundred kinds of Holy Land flowers; while among trees arc -tho oaks of fro/en climes, aud the tumarisk of the tropics, walnut and willow, ivy and hawthornc, ash aim •older, pliio and sycamore. H such llotnl and botanical beauties arc tlio wild growths of the Held, think of what a garden must be in Palestine! And in such a garden .Icsus Christ slept after, on the soldier's spear, his lost drop of blood had coagulated. And then see how appropriate that all •our cemeteries should be and two shaded. In Juno Greenwood is Brooklyn's garden. "Well, then," ,VO" say, "how can make out that the resurrection will beautify the cemeteries? you •day ki" fit) 1 - •Will it not leave them a plowed up jrround? On that, day there will be an earthquake, nnd will not this split the polished Aberdeen granite, as well as the plain slab that can afford but two words, -Our Mary,'or 'Our Charley; Well I will tell vou how resurrection day will beautify all the cemeteries. It' will be by bringing up tho faces that were to us once, and in our memories arc to us now, more beautiful than any calla lily, and the forms that arc to us more graceful than any willow by tho waters. Can von think of anything more beautiful than the txuiiipoaraucc of those from whom we Lave been parted? I do not care which way the tree falls in the blast of the judgment hurricane, or if the plowshare that day shall turn under the last rose leaf and the last china aster, if out of the broken soft shall come the bodies of our loved ones not damaged, but irradiated, The idea of the resurrection gets •easier, to .understand as I hear the phonograph*'unroll' some voice that talked into it a year ago, just before <iur friend's decease. You touch the lever, and then come forth the very tones, the very song of the person that breathed into it once, but is now departed. If » man can do that, can not Almighty Uod, without half trying, return the voice of your departed. And if he can return the voice, why not the lips and the tongue and the •throat that fashioned the voice? And it the lips and the tongue and the throat, why-wot the fcrain that suggested the words? And if the brain, why not the nerves, of which the brain is the headquarters? And if he can return the nerves, why not the muscles, which are less ingenious? And if the muscles, why not the bones, that are less wonderful? Aud if the voice and the brain and the muscles and the bones, why not the entire liody? H M 181 * ^^ do the phonograph, tied, eau do the resurrection. Will it be the same body that in the last day shall be reanimated? Yes, but infinitely improved. Our bodies •change every seven years, and yet in 0ne tense it is the same body. On my wrist and the second finger of my t-igHtH&ld-'thero is a soar.

At tlta first ftttetafct tlod mad6 ft perfect man, Ito inade him out of the dust bfthfc earth. If out of Ordinary dust of the earth and without n model Odd could make ft perfect matt, surely out, of tho extra; ordinary dust of mortal body, and with millions of models, (.tod can tnalto each one of us a perfect beitiff In the resurrection, Suroly the last undertaking would not bo greater than the llrst. See tho gospel algebra; ordinary dust minus n, model oouiils a perfect man; extraordinary dust ami plua a, model equals a resurrection body. Mysteries about It? Oh, yes; that Is one reason why t believe It. It would not bo much of a Got! who could do things only a's far as I cnn understand Mysteries? Oli, yes; but no more about tho resurrection of yo\tr body thaii about its present existence. I will explain to you tho last mystery of the resurrection, and make It as plain to you as that two and two make four, It you will toll mo how your mind, whloh is entirely Independent of your body, can act upon your body so that at your will your oyos open, or your foot walks, or your hand Is extended. So I find nothing In the Bible statement concerning tho resurrection that staggers mo for a moment. All doubts clear from my mind. I say that the cemeteries, however beautiful now, will bo more beautiful when the bodies of our loved ottuseomc up, in tho morning of the resurrection. They will-come In improved condition. 'They will come up rested. The most of them lay down at the last very tired. Mow often yoti have hoard them say, "I am so tired!" The fact Is, it is n tired world. If I should go through this audience, and go round tho world, I could not find a person in any stylo of life ignorant of tho sensation of fatigue. I do not believe there are fifty persons in this audience who arc not tired. Your head is tired, or your back is tired, or your foot is tired, or your brain is tired, or your nerves arc tired. Long journeying', or business application, or bereavement, <*r sickness has put on you heavy weurhts. So tho vast majority of those who went out of this world went out fatigued. About the poorest place to rest 'in is this world. It* atmosphere, its surroundings, and even its hilarities, arc exhausting So God stops our earthly life, and mercifully closes the eyes, and more especially gives quiescence to the lungand heart, that have not had ten minutes' rest from tho first respiration and the first beat. If n drummer boy were compelled in the army to beat his drum for twenty- four -hours without'stopping, his officer would be court-martialed for cruelty. If the drummer boy should bo commanded to beat his drum for a week without ceasing, day and night, he would die in attempting it Hut under your vestment is a poor heart that began its drum beat for the march of life thirty, or forty, or sixty or eighty years'ag°' and it has had no furlough by day or night; and whether in conscious or comatose state, it went right on, for if it had stopped seven seconds your life would have closed. And your heart, will keep going until some time after your spirit has flown, for tho auscnltatcr says that after the last expiration of lung aud the last Uirob of pulse, and after the spirit, is released, vhe heart keeps on beating for a time. What a mercy, then, it is that the grave is the place where that wondrous machinery of ventricle and artery can halt. Under the healthful chemistry of the soil all the wear and tear of nerve and muscle and bone will be subtracted and that bath of good fresh clean soil will wash off the last ache, and then some of tho same style of dust ont of which the body of Adam was constructed may be infused into the resurrection body. How can the bodies of the human race, which have had no replenishment from the dust since, the time of Adam in Paradise, pet any recuperation from the storehouse from which he was constructed without our going back into the dust? Factories are apt to be rough places, and those who toil in them have their garments grimy and their hands smutched. Hut who cares for that when they turn out for us beantif ul musical instruments or exquisite upholstery? What though the grave is a rough place, it is a resurrection body manufactory, and from it shall come the radiant'and resplendent forms of our friends on the brightest morning the world ever saw. You put into a factory cotton, and it comes out apparel You put into a factory lumber and lead, apd it comes out pianos and organs. And so into the factory of the grave, you put in pneumonias and consumptions and they come out health. You put in groans and they come out hallelujahs. For us, on the final day, the most attractive places will not be the parks or the gardens or the palaces, but the cemeteries. We are not told in what season that day will come. . If it should be winter, those who come up will ba more lustrous than the snow th^t covered them. If in antumn, those who come wp will be more gorgeous than the woods after the frosts bad penciled (,hem- if ia tfe* 1 «?»«& * be bloom on which they Uaad will tea dull com pared with the rubicund of their cheeks. Oh, the perfect resurrection hody! Almost everybody has some defective si»t ia his physical constitution; a dull ear, or a dim eye, or a rneuu»tic foot, or a pcuralgic brow, twisted wwscls. or a afies 6ftartfi'iMll 1 tni&teifoS* 1fa?o t* dd, Will be tb«8tMtho«tlnt6rr1ip-l!6tt lot the broken- filghta &f tHolf fifthly existence. Not only will that day be the beantlncatlott of well kept cemeteries, but some of the gravcyaf ds that have beefl neglected and been the pasture ground fof dattle, and tooting places for swine, will for the first time have attractiveness given them.

After his resurrection Mary Magdalene saw him. Cleopas saw him. Ten disciples in. an upper room at Jerusalem, saw him., Oil a mountain the eleven saw him. Five hundred at once saw him. Prof.' Ernest llenaniwho did not sco-hlm, will excuse UH for taking tho testimony of tho five hundred aud eighty who did see him. Yes, yes; he got away. And that makes mo sure that our departed loved ones and wo ourselves shall got away. Freed himself from the shackles of clod, ho is not going to leave us and ours in tho lurch. There will bo no door knob on tno inside of our family sopulcher, for wo can not come out', of ourselves; but there is a door knob on the outside, and that Jesus shall lay hold of, and, opening, will say; "Good morning! You have slept long enough! Arise! Arise!" And then what flutter of wings, and what flashing of rekindled eyes, and what gladsome rushing across the family lot, with cries of "Father, is that you?" "Mother, is that you?" "My darltnsr, is that you?" '"How you have all changed! The cough gone, the -croup gone, the consumption gone, tho paralysis gone, tho weariness gone.' Come, let us ascend tc- irethcr! The older ones first, the vouutrcr ones next! Quick now, get into line! The skyward procession has already started! Mtcer now by that embankment of cloud for the. nearest gate!" And, as we ascend, on one side the earth gets smaller until it is no larger than a mountain, and smaller 'until it is no larger than a palace, and smaller until it is no larger than a ship, and smaller until it is no larger than a wheel, and smaller until it is no larger than a speck. Farewell, dissolving earth! But on tho other side, as we rise, heaven at first appears no larger than your hand. And nearer it looks like a chariot, and nearer it looks like a throne, and nearer it looks like a star, and nearer it looks like » sun, and nearer it looks like a universe. Hail, scepters that shall always wave! Hail, anthems that shall always roll! Hail, companionships never again to part! That is what resurrection day will do for all the cemeteries and graveyards from the Machpclah that was opened by Father Abraham in Hebron to the Machpelah yesterday consecrated. And that makes Lady Huntingt.on's immortal rnvthmmost apposite: When thou, my righteous judge, shall come To take thy ransomed people home, Shall 1 among them stand?
