Worldly reform by all means; but unless It be also gospel reform, it will be dead failure. In New Ifork its chief work has been to give ua a change of bosses. We had a democratic boss and now it is to be a republican boss, but the quarrel Is, who shall be the repttblican? Politics will save the cities the same day that satan evangelizes perdition. The glorious gospel of the blessed God as spoken of in my text will have more drawing power, and when that gospel gets full swing* it will have a Momentum and a power mightier than that of the Atlantic ocean When, under the force of the September equinox* It Strikes the highlands of the Navesirtk. 411 that, and though an afeafcdoned tie while Christ was here 1 achieving yoxtt 1 redemption, Is again occupied by the "Chief among ten thousand" ahd some of i-ouf own Kindred who have gone up aftd, waiting for you, afe lean- Ing from the balcony.

Rev. Dr. Talmage took for his subject, "The Glorious Gospel;" the text chosen being: "According to the glorious gospel of the blessed God which was committed to my trust."—1 Tim., I:ii. The greatest novelty of our time is the gospel. It is so old that it is new. glorious good news and we must tell it in our churches and over our dry goods counters and in our factories and over our threshing machines and behind our ploughs and on our ships' decks and In our parlors, our nurseries and kitchens, as though it were glorious good news and not with a dismal drawl in out- voice and a dismal look in our faces, as though religion were a rheumatic twinge or a dyspeptic pang or a malarial chill or ah attack of nervous prostration. With nine "blesseds" or "hap- pys," Christ began his sermon on the mount: Blessed the poor, blessed the mourner, blessed the meek, blessed the As potters and artists are now attempt- hungry, blessed the merciful, blessed ing to fashion pitchers and cups and curious ware like those of 1,900 years ago recently brought up from buried Pompeii, and such cups and pitchers and curious ware are universally admired, so anyone who can unshovel the real gospel from the mountains of stuft! under which it has been burled, will be able to present something that will attract the gaze and admiration and adoption of all the people. It is the pure, blessed the peace makers, blessed the persecuted, blessed the reviled, blessed, blessed, bussed; happy, happy, happy. Glorious good news for the young as through Christ they may have their coming years ennobled and for a life time all the angels of God their coadjutors and all the armies of heaven their allies. Glorious good news for the middle aged, as through Christ they may have their perplexities dis- amazing what substitutes have been j entangled and their courage rallied and presented for what my text calls "The , their victory over all obstacles and hin- Glortous Gospel." There has been an j drances made forever sure. Glorious hemispheric apostasy. There are many | good news for the aged, as they may people in this and all other large as- i have the sympathy of him of whom St. Bemblages who have no more idea of What the gospel really is than they have of what is contained in the fourteenth chapter of Zend-Avesta, the tai"Me of the Hindoo, the first copy of *hich I ever saw I purchased in Calcutta, India, last September. ; The old Rospel IB fifty feet under and the work i'las been done by the shovels of those Who have been trying to contrive the philosophy of religion. There is no phil- iteophy about it. It is a plain matter of Oible statement and of child-like faith. Some of the theological seminaries have hotbeds of infidelity, because they frave tried to teach the "philosophy of religion." By the time that many a young theological student gets half Jhrough Ills preparatory course he is )o filled with doubts about plenary In- \piration and the divinity of Christ and ,-ihe questions of eternal destiny that jle is more fit for the lowest branch in the infant class of a Sunday school than to become a teacher and leader of the people. The ablest theological professor is a Christian mother, who out of her own experience can tell the four- year-old how beautiful Christ was on earth and how beautiful he is in heaven and how dearly he loves little folks and then she kneels down and puts one arm around the boy and with her somewhat faded cheek against the roseate cheek of the little one, consecrates him for time and eternity to him who said, "Suffer them to come unto me." What an awful work Paul made with the D. D.'s and the LL. D.'s and the P. R. S.'s when he. cleared the decks of the old gospel ship by saying: "Not many wise men, not many noble, are called, but God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the mighty." "There sits the dear old theologian with his table piled up with all the great books on inspiration and exegesis and apologetics for the Almighty and writing out his own elaborate work on the philosophy of religion, and his little grandchild coming up to him for a good night kiss, he accidentally knocks off the biggest book from the table and it falls on the head of the child, of whom Christ himself said: "Out of the mouths of babes and sucklings thou hast perfected praise." Ah! my friends, the bible wants no apologetics. The throne of the last judgment wants no apologetics. Eternity wants no apologetics. Scientists may tell us that natural light is the "propagation of undulations in an elastic medium and thus set in vibratory motion by the action of luminous bodies;" but no one knows what gospel light is until his own blind eyes by the touch of the Divine Spirit have opened to see the noonday of pardon and peace. Scientists may tell us that natural sound is "the effect of an impression made on the organs of hearing by an impulse of the air, caused by a collision of bodies or by other means;" but those 'only know what the gospel sound is who have heard the voice of Christ directly saying: "Thy sins are forgiven thee; go in peace." The theological dude unrolls upon the plush of ftafeie frigate" Alfcsit did. John wrote: "His head and his halrfl were white like wool, as white as snow," and the defense of the everlasting arms. Glorious good news for the dying, as they may have ministering spirits to escort them and opening gates to receive them and a sweep of eternal glories to encircle them and the welcome .of a loving God to embosom them. Oh, my text is right when it speaks of the glorious gospel. It is ,an invitation from the most radient being that ever trod the earth or ascended the heavens, to you and me, to come and be made happy and then take after that a royal castle for everlasting residence, the angels of God our cup bearers. The price paid for all of this on the cliff of limestone about as high as this house, about seven minutes' walk from the wa,!! of Jerusalem, where with an agony that with one hand tore down the rocks and with the other drew a midnight blackness over the heavens, our Lord set us forever free. Making no apology for any one of the million sins of our life, but confessing all of them, we can point to that cliff of limestone and say, "There was paid our indebtedness and God never collects a bill twice. Glad am I that all the Christian poets have exerted their pen in extolling the matchless one of this gospel. Isaac Watts, how do you feel concerning him? And he writes, "I am not ashamed to own my Lord." Newton, what do you think of this gospel? And he writes, "Amazing- grace, how sweet the sound." Cowper, what do you think of him? And the answer comes, "There is a fountain filled with blood." : Charles Wesley, what do you think of him? And he an- j swers, "Jesus, lover of my soul." Ho- J ratlus Bonar, what do you think of him? And he responds, "I lay my sins on Jesus." Ray Palmer, what do you think of him? And he writes, "My faith looks up to thee." Fannie Crosby, what do you think of him? And she writes, "Blessed assurance, Jesus ^s mine." But I take higher testimony: 'Solomon, what do you think of him? And the answer is, "Lily of the valley." Ezekiel, what do you think of him? And the answer is, "Plant of renown." David, what do you thhjk of him? And the answer is, "My Shepherd." St. John, what do you think of him? And the answer is, "Bright and morning star." St. Paul, what do you think of him? And the answer comes, "Christ is all in all." Do you think/as well of him, O man, O woman of the blood-bought immortal spirit ? JYes, Paul waa right when he styled it "The Glorious Gospel." And then as a di-uggist, while you are waiting for him to make up the doctor's prescription, puts into a bottle so many grains of this and so many grains of 'that, and so many drops of this and so many drops of that, and the intermixture taken, though sour or bitter, restores the health, so Christ, the Divine Physician, prepares this trouble of, our life time and that disappointment and this persecution and that hardship and that tear, and we must take the intermixture, yet though it be a bitter draught, dens where Immortals walk linked In eternal friendship; and the banquet hall of that castle has princes and princess* es at the table; and the wine Is "the new wine of the kingdom" ah'd the Supper is the marriage supper of the lamb; and there are fountains Iftto which ho tear ever fell and there is music that trembles With no grief ahd the light that falls upon that scene 18 never becloud* ed and there is the kiss of those reunited after long separation. More nerve will we have there than how or we would swoon away under the raptures. Stronger vision will We have there than now or our eyesight Would be blinded by the brilliance. Stronger ear will we have there than now or un* der the roll of that minstrelsy and the clapping of that acclamation and the boom of that hallelujah we would be deafened. Glorious gospel! You thought religion was a straight-jacket, that it put you on the llhilts, that thereafter you must go cowed down. No, no, no. It is .to be castellated. By the cleansing power of the shed blood of Golgotha set your faces toward the shining pinnacles. Oh, It does not matter much what becomes of us here—for at the longest our stay is short—If we can only land there. You see there are so many I do want to meet there. Joshua, my favorite prophet; and John among the evangelists; and Paul among the apostles, and Wycllffe among the martyrs, and Bourdaloue among the preachers, and Dante among the poets, and Havelock among the heroes, and our loved ones whom We have so much missed since they left us, so many darlings of the heart, their absence sometimes almost unbearable; and, mentioned in this sentence last of all because I want the thought climacteric, our blessed Lord, without whom./we could never reach the old castle at all. He took our place. He purchased our ransom. He wept our woes. He suffered our stripes. He died our death. He assured our resurrection. Blessed be his glorious name forever! Surging to his ear be all the anthems! Facing him be all the thrones! Oh, I want to see it and I will see it— the day of his coronation. On a throne already, methinks the day will come when in some great hall of eternity all the nations of earth whom he has conquered by his grace will assemble again to crown him. Wide and high and Immense and upholstered as with the sunrises and sunsets of a thousand years, great audience room of heaven. Like the leaves of an Adirondack forest the ransomed" multitudes, and Christ standing on a high place surrounded by worshippers and subjects. They shall come out of the farthest past led on by the prophets; they shall come out of the early gospel days led on by the apostles; they shall come out of the centuries still ahead of us, led on by champions of the truth, heroes and heroines yet to be born. And then from that vastest audience ever assembled in all the universe there Will so up the shout, "Crown him! Crown him! Crown him!" and the Father who long ago promised his only begotten Son, "I will give thee the heathen for thy inheritance and the uttermost parts of the earth for thy possession," shall set the crown upon the forehead yet scarred with crucifixion bramble, and the hosts of heaven, down on the levels and up in the galleries will drop on their knees crying, "Hail king of earth! King of heaven! King of saints! King of seraphs! Thy kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and to thy dominions there shall be no end! Amen and Amen! Amen and Amen!" The '•famous frigate "Constitution," often known as "Old IfcmstdeSY 1 was launched September So, 1797, ft few months after Washington's retirement, ahd therefore lacks only two years of being a century old. She Is the most famous ship In the history of the United States, and In her renown rivals the celebrated llne-of-bfcttle ship '.'Victory," Lord Nelson's flag ship at the battle of Trafalgar. She has been, Indeed, what Is called a lucky' Ship. She never lost a battle, she never fell Into the hands of the enemy; and she never was disabled by a storm. Many harrow escapes she has had In her long ari"d prosperous car eer, and she has corne triumphant out of all her adventures, Like the constitution of the United States, after which she was named, she has withstood every danger that threatened, and is a fitting type of the ship of State. Of course, during her seventy-five years of active service the Constitution often needed to be repaired. But although the material In her lias been often replaced, she always continued the same ship, just as the human body is the Same body of the same person, though its substance is constantly changing. In 1830 it was decided that the good frigate "Constitution" would ' ftfltf . 1ft ftnaitfr e'oftSented 16 pasS the flight. the morning he ftfw&eded ttpoft htt way, and Having transacted fcW fettfl* ness at WllllamSburf, returned id Mr. Chamberlayn's and spent seirefal days.

It Is said that the day after she accepted Washington she planted a yew tree In the garden be* hlrtd the "six chimney house," a symbol of devotion and constancy. The mar* Hage took place at the residence of the> bride on Jan. 17, 1759— about six months' after the first meeting-^ahd the cere-* mony was followed by a reception.

CONSTITUTION AND GUEBBIRRE. httrdly warant the cost of repairs, especially when the nature of modern naval warfare was considered. She was therefore condemned, and was about to be broken up when Oliver Wendell Holmes' famous ode appeared, beginning, "Ay, tear her tattered ensign .down." The poet shamed congress, and it was decided to repair once more the old warship. 'She took several cruises after that, and once carried a load of wheat to the starving poor of Ireland. On that voyage she went ashore, and being old, there was every reason why she should have left her bones on the coast; but, with her usuat good luck, the "Constitution" got off without serious damage and returned to her native land. '. But a day came at last when no further repairs would avail, and a government which pays little for sentiment, would spend nothing to keep up a ship which had contributed so much to the glory of our ship builders, of our brave seamen and of our starry flag. The "Constitution," leaky and dismantled, was lying at the Brooklyn navy yard, awaiting her doom. Happily the gov-. ernment again relented in her favor. It was decided that she should not be broken up. As long as her old timbers Would hold together she should be allowed to float, but not with her trim masts and spars, as if still a living monument of our naval pride. No; they would not break her up, but they would send her into an obscure exile, where, few could see her and where she would soon be forgotten and gradually wear away. Sometimes I think it would have been nobler to take the old frigate out to sea, and piercing her sides with a volley of guns, let her sink into ». the bosom, of the element which had borne her'proud'form to so many victories.—S. G. W. Benjamin. lilfe of Washington, George Washington was born in Vir* glhla, Feb. 22, 1732. His father was a planter, with a large landed property; his mother was a woman of great force of character, but, like many ladies of that day, she had litle education. Washington got such education as the poor country schools of the time afforded, but he made the most of it. His exercise books are models of method and neatness. Besides the common branches of reading, writing and arithmetic, he learned surveying and bookkeeping. He was a land of great strength and took the lead In all athletic sports, and he became one of the best horsemen of his time. He bore hardships with great resolution, he spoke the truth, he was economical, industrious and systematic In his habits. He was, while yet hardly more than a boy, engaged in surveying wild lands for Lord Fairfax, an English nobleman, who owned a great tract of Virginian territory, and lived in the Shenandoah Valley. He thus came to know the frontier country and the habits of the Indians. He was made a major of the militia at nineteen, and he was but twenty-one when Gov. Dlnwiddie sent him on a mission to the French posts on the Ohio, as we have told in another chapter. • By his prudent conduct in Braddock and Forbes' expeditions, and in the defense of the Virginia frontier, he won the confidence of the American people. He was a member of the Continental Congress of 1774. He was not a brilliant man, but even in 1774 Patrick Henry pronounced him for "solid information and sound judgment, unquestionably the greatest man" on the lloor of the Continental Congress. fc&t of .. ft Mgof, . i**&t ,' -f« . a* tta wtfjtos MftefldtA 8! fft» T3*dy, Serftfi as digestion, sSefettoft of tt$ V 'the aoWofi ol the IwtfeiS, the ettoftUrtlot 6f t blood.

The the exquisitely carved pulpit a learned | discourse showing that the garden of Eden was an allegory and Solomon's song a rather indelicate love ditty and the book of Job a drama in which satan was the star actor and that Benan was three-quarters right about the miracles of Jesus and that the bible was gradually evoluted and the best thought of the different ages, Moses and David and Paul doing the best they could under the circumstances and therefore to be encouraged. Lord of heaven and earth, get us out of the London fog of higher criticism! The night is dark and the way Is rough and we have a lantern which God has put in oyr hands; but instead of employing that lantern to show ourselves and others the right way we a re discussing lanterns, their shape, their size, their material and which is the better light—kerosene, lamp oil or candle; and while we discuss it we stand all around the lantern so that we shut out the light from the multitudes who are stumbling on the dark mountains of sin and death.' Twelve hundred dead birds were found one morning under the divine prescription it administers to our restoration and spiritual health, "all things working together for good." Glorious gospel! And then the royal castle into, which we step out of this life without so much as soiling our foot with, the upturned earth of the grave. "They shall reign forever and ever," Does not that mean that you are, if saved, to be kings and queens, and do not kings and queens have castles? But the one that you are offered was for thirty-three years an abandoned castle, though now gloriously inhabited. There is an abandoned royal castle at Amber, India. One nun* clred and seventy years ago a king moved out of it never to return,- But the castle still stands in indescribable grandeur, and you go through brazen doorway after brazen doorway and carved room after carved room and under embellished ceiling after embellish^ ed celling and through halls precious- stoned into wider halls precious-stoned, and on that hijl are paviiUons deeply dyed and tasselled and arched, the fire of colored gardens cooled by the sncfw of white architecture; birds in srab- SOUND ADVICE. No man who is constantly bragging about his ancestors has any merit of his own. The moment of an ill can be patiently borne if it is disarmed of its po'ison* though not of its pain. You should do something for others each day, if it be npthing more than to tell them a disagreeable truth. No one should sit down to his own meals until seeing that all the animals dependent on his 'care are provided for. Never let us be discouraged with ourselves, It is not when we are conscious of our faults that we are most wicked, It is sometimes a privilege to die, a-nta it is sometimes a duty to live. If there is no' more to be done, we should be ready to go. Follow light and do the right—for man can half control his doom— till you find the deathless angel seated in the vacant tomb. I have had many things in my hands, and I have lost them all, but whatever I have been able to place in God's I still possess, Every tree and shrub is a distaff for holding, and every twig a spindle for spinning, the material with which God Invests it. If thou wouldst find much favor and peace with God and man, be very low in thine own eyes; forgive thyself little and others much. A man is not educated until he has the ability to summon, in an emergency, all his rnental powers in vigorous exercise to effect its proposed object. If all men were such that a mere spoken or sworn contract would bind them.all men were then true men, and government a superfluity. Oh! many a shaft at random sent, finds mark the archer little meant; an4 many a word, at random spoken, may soothe or wound a heart that's broken, You must not only work, but you must order your work with intelligence; you must be preparing the way for what you intend to become, as well ai do what lies to your hand, Homo ami Society In "Washington's Time. Not only did the people of the United States, in the time of President Washington, have no railroads and no steamboats, but they lacked a great number of other conveniences. Telegraphs and telephones were unknown. Electric lights- are an invention 'of our own time, but • our ancestors did not even have. gas or kerosene oil. Lamps of any kind were almost unknown; houses were lighted with tallow candles, though* some of the people made candles of a'green wax derived from the berries of the wax-myrtle tree. The poorest people burned a wick in a ves- eel containing a little grease, or lighted pieces of pitch pine on the hearth. With such lights, it was no great virtue that they went to bed early, Even . the streets of large towns 'were lighted with dim lanterns. Stoves for heating were almost unknown; those for cooking were not yet dreamed of. Wood was the only fuel used in, houses. Blacksmiths burned charcoal.

Wayne devoted himself to drilling military companies In his own county, He entered the army as; colonel, in 1776 and distinguished himself In many actions. His most notable exploit, perhaps; was the storming of Stony Point, on the Hudson, This formidable work he carried at midnight by bayonet, charge, the.soldiers' guns being empty. He afterward handled a small fOrce in Georgia in such a way as to hold in checK a much larger body of British troops. It was his careful organization and bold execution of various enterprises during the Revolution which caused his selection by Washington U retrieve the fortunes of the Indian wa? after St, Glair's defeat, When he returned from his successful expedition against the Indians he was received in Philadelphia In triumph. He was sent in 1796 to receive the surrender of the western forts, and died in December of that year on the shore of LaKe/Erie.
