Tltfi ALMA, IOWA, WtittSBSfrAlf , MAficB TMTALMAGE SERMON MlfiOES AMb HEROISM OP tHE BIBLE'S TIME. Story tit fittnftiah fthti the "He Weht ttottn amd Sle* a A fit oft & Snowy toay"— 1L : 33. tloa In EW YORK, FEB. 24, 1895.—Dr. Talmage took for his subject to-day, "A Snowy Day," the text selected being 1. Chronicles il : 22: "He went down and slew a lion in a pit in a snowy day." Have you ever heard of him? His w name was Benaiah. He was a man of stout muscle and of great avoirdupois. His father was a hero, and he inherited prowess. He was athletic and there was iron in his blood, and the strongest bone in his body was back bone. He is known for other wonders besides that of the text. An Egyptian five cubits in stature, or about seven feet nine inches high, was moving around in braggadocio and flourishing a great spear, careless as to whom he killed, and Benaiah of my text, with nothing but a walking stick came upon him, snatched the spear from the Bgyp- tlan.and with one thrust of its sharp edge, put an end to the blatant bully, which makes us think of the story in our Greek lesson too hard for us if the smarter boy on the same bench had not helped us out with it, in which Horatius the Macedonian, and Dloxippus the Athenian, fought in the presence of Alexander; the Macedonian armed with shield and sword and javelin, and the Athenian with nothing but a club. The Macedonian hurled the javelin, but the Athenian successfully dogded it, and the Macedonian lifted the spear, but the Athenian with the club broke it, and the Macedonian drew the sword, but the Athenian tripped him up before he could strike with it, and then the Athenian with his club would have beaten the life out of the Macedonian, fallen among his useless weapons, if Alexander had not commanded, "Stop! Stop!" But Benaiah of the text is about to do something that will eclipse even that. There Is trouble in all the neighborhood. Lambs are carried off in the night, and children venturing only a little way from their father's house are found mangled and dead. The fact is.the land was infested with lions, and few people dared meet one of these grizzly beasts, much less corner or atack zly beasts, much less corner or attack it. one morning a footstep of a lion was tracked in the snow. It had been out oU its devouring errand through the darkness, but at last it is found by the impression of four paws on the white surface of the ground, which way the wild beast came, and which way it had gone. Perilous undertaking; but Benaiah, the hero of the text, armed himself with such weapons as those early days afforded, gunpowder having been invented in a far subsequent century by the German monk, Betholdus Schwartz. Therefore, without gun or any kind of firearms, Benaiah of the —three troubles! There is a reporter of fine taste sent to report a pugilism instead of an oratorio, the copy he hands In Is rejected because the paper is full, a mother to support on small income- three troubles! I could march right oft the seats, and across this platform, if they would come at my call, five hundred people with three troubles. This is the opportunity to play the hero or the heroine, not on a small stage with a tetir hundred people to clap their approval, but with all the galleries of heaven filled with sympathetic and applauding Spectators, for we are "surrounded by a great cloud of witnesses." My brother, my sister, my father, my inother, what a chance you have! While you are in the struggle, if you only have the grace of Christ to listen, a voice parts the heavens, saying, "My grace is sufficient for thee;" "Whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth; "You shall be more than conquerors." And that reminds me of a letter on my table written by sortie one whom I suppose to be at this moment present, saying: "My dear, dear Doctor: You will please pardon the writer for asking that at some time when you feel like it, you kindly preach from the 30th psalm, 6th verse: 'Weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning.' and much oblige a down town business man." So to all down town business men, and to all up towii business men, I say, if you have on hand goods that you can not sell, and debtors who will not, or can not, pay, and you are also suffering from uncertainty as to what the Imbecile American congress will do about the tariff, you have three troubles, and enough to bring you within the range of the consolation of my text, where you find the triumph of Benaiah over a lion, and a pit, and a snowy day. If you have only one trouble, I can not •spend any time with you to-day. You must have at least three, and then remember how many have triumphed over such a triad of misfortune. Paul had three troubles: Sanhedrin denouncing him—that was one great trouble; physical infirmity, which he called "a thorn in the flesh," and although we know not what the thorn was, we .do know from the figure he used that it must have been something that stuck him—that was the second trouble; approaching martyrdom—that made the three troubles. Yet, hear what he says: "If I had only one misfortune, I could stand that; but three are two too many?" No: I misinterpret. He says, "Sorrowful, yet always rejoicing; poor, yet making many rich; having nothing, yet posessing all things." Thanks be unto God, who giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ." David had three troubles; a bad boy, a temptation to dissoluteness, and dethronement. What does he say? "God is our refuge and strength, a very present help In time of trouble. Therefore, will not we fear, though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be cast into the midst of the sea." John "Wesley had three troubles:: Defamation by mobs; domestic infelicity; fatigue from more sermons preached and more miles traveled than almost any man of his time. What does he say? "The best of all is, God is with us." And when his poet brother, Charles Wesley, said to him, "Brother John, if the Lord were to give me wings, I'd fly." John's reply was, "Brother Charles, if the Lord told me to fly, I'd do it, and leave him to find the wings." • George WJUtefield_ha!0Lthree...trou.b!es : ~j^<3^~=-r:— - riKT~... -- •- v «. 1 ^.-~-^>o: -usurerJitMio:; slaughter of the lion as he followed the track through the snow. It may have been a javelin, it may have been only a knife; but what Benaiah lacks in weapon he will make up in strength of arm and skill of stroke. But where is the lion? We must not get off his track in the snow. The land has many cisterns, or pits, for catching rain, the rainfall being very scarce at certain seasons, and hence these cisterns, or reservoirs are digged here, and there, and yonder. Lions have an instinct which seems to tell them when they are pursued, and this dread monster of which I speak, retreats into one of these cisterns which happened to be free of water, and is there panting from the long run, and lioklng its jaws after a repast of human! because he was too dramatic — that was one trouble; strabismus, or the crossing of his eyes that subjected him to the caricature of all the small wits of the day; vermin and dead animals thrown at him while he preached on the commons—that made three troubles. Nevertheless his sermons were so buoyant that a little child dying soon after hearing him preach said in the intervals of pain, "Let me go to Mr. Whitefleld'sGod." Oh, I am so glad that Benaiah of my text was not the only one who triumphed over a lion in a nit on a snowy day. Notice in my text a victory over bad weather. It was a snowy day, when one's vitality is at a low ebb, and the spirits are naturally depressed, and one does not feel like undertaking a great I enterprise, when Benaiah rubs his hands of beasts."- Was it a daggerf WaS it a javelin * Was it a knife? 1 caft n'6t tell, but everything depended upoft It. But for that, Benaiah's body under one crunch of the monster Would have been left limp and tumbled In the Snow. And when you and 1 go Into the fight with temptation, If we have not the right kind of weapon, ihetead of our slaying the Hott, the iloti will slfty us. The sword of the Spirit! Nothing Ih earth or hell can stand before that. Victory tvith that, or no Victory at alL By that I mean prayer to God, confidence In his rescuing jpower, ftavthg grace, Almighty deliverance. I do aot care what-yoU call It; I calJ It "Sword of the Spirit." Ahd if the HonS oi ail the jungles of perdition should at once spring upon your soul, by that weapon of heaVettly metal you can thrust thett* back, and cut them down, aitd stab them through, and leave them powerless at your feet. Your good fesolu* tioh wielded against the powers which assault you is a toy pistol agalfist an Armstrong gun; Is a pen knife- Held <anit against the brandished sabres of ft Heintzelfnan's cavalry charge, Go into the flght against sin on your owrt. strength, and the result will be the hot breath of the lion in your blanched face, and his front paws, one on each lung. Alas! for the man not fully armed, down in the pit, on a snowy day, and before him a Hon. All my hearers and readers have a big fight of some sort on hand, but the- biggest and the wrathlost lion which you have to flght is what the Bible calls "The roaring lion, who walketh about, you have never seen a real lion unless you have seen him in India or Africa, just after capture. Long caging breaks his spirit, and the constant presence of human beings tames him. But you ought to see him spring against the iron bars in the zoological gardens of Calcutta, and hear him roar for the prey. It makes one's blood curdle-, and you shrlnic back, although you know there is no peril. Plenty of lions in olden time. Six hundred of them were- slaughtered on one occasion in thepres- ence of Pompey in the Roman amphitheater. Lions came out and destroyed the camels which carried the baggage of Xerxes' army. In Bible times there were so many lions that they- are frequently alluded to in the scriptures. Joel, the prophet, describes the "cheek teeth" of a great lion; and Isaiah mentions among the attractions of heaven that "no lion shall be there;" and Amos speaks of a shepherd taking a lamb's ear out of the mouth of a lion; and Solomon describes the righteous as "bold as a lion;" and Daniel was a great lion tamer; and David, and Jeremiah, and St. John often speak of this creature. Well, it will be better than that when some of you are seen entering the harbor of heaven. You have had a rough voyage—no mistake about that. Snowy day after snowy day. Again and again the machinery of health and courage broke down, and the waves of temptation have swept clear over the hurricane deck, so that you were often compelled to say, "All thy waves and thy billows have gone over me," and you were down in the trough of that sea, and down in the trough of the other sea, and many despaired of your safe arrival. But the great Pilot, not one who must come off from some other craft, but the one who walked storm-swept Galilee, and now walks the wintry At- :rnr~tliB-.Tmven," wlien"'hO'~ sooner -have you passed the narrows of death than you find all the banks lined with immortals celebrating your arrival; and while some break off palm branches from the banks and wave them, those standing on one side will chant "There shall be no more sea;" and those standing on the other side will chant, "These are they which came out of great tribulation, and had their robes washed and made white in the blood of the Lamb." Off of the stormy sea into the smooth harbor. Out of leonine struggle in the pit, to guidance by the lamb, who shall lead you to living fountains of water. Out of the snowy day of earthly severities into the gardens of everlasting flora, and into orchards of eternal fruitage, the fall of their white blossoms the only snow in heaven.

The announcement of W. K. Van- rterbilt's name \viis somewhat of a surprise. Mr. Vanderbilt was a member of the Colonia syndicate and it was not expected that he would join a new one this year, particularly as the Colonia is to be prepared for the fall races. He owned the Alva. which was wrecked oft' Cape Cod threo years ag-o, and then had the magnificent steamer Vailant, built by the Lairds. The Vailant is the largest and handsomest steamer afloat and is now at Nice. Mr. Vanderbilt is on the steamship Teutoinc on his way to join his y acht. C. Oliver Iselin is one of the best known amateurs in the country.

He used to call her his Annie Laurie. As the tender melody of the old ballad came in trembling tones over the wires tears rolled up in the listener's eyes and his heart almost stood still. He recognized the voice, and, as the girl finished singing the verse, he said in a voice choking with emotion: "You are still ray Annie Laurie, dear; you are still my love-!" It's all right now. The lover had been won back with, a song. Too much Indian pudding has had iho-1 effect to make some children yell. ftre »t»t to colder trittat bftSft tfeftragfc nfc£ lect, intd 6trbcl6t» iftuM gtftita tetMftSeWeSI i&ttd frtoduotttd ttl8thedlSr»|fafd6{ the eaflte* IndWaitidlW ftf All 66r,tS 6* iaalfidleS. ofi a chr bnlo 6f , ifcerfrftfe oerfaia dl8ofde«9 InoidSflt !e tttf season, such as malaria -and' fheuinatfsta, fttfftiast WMoh It la-alW^S desitablg to fofttff the djsteifl) after etjpotof e t<s the cofidmelSi »HiohproduC€itiieiri.

Benaiah is all alert, and comes cautiously on toward the hiding place of this tei-ror of the fields. Coming to the verge of the pit, he looks down at the lion, and the lion looks up at him. What a moment it was when their eyes clashed! But while a modern Du Chail- lu, Gordon Gumming or Sir Samuel Baker, or David Livingston would have just brought the gun to the shoulder, and held the eye against the barrel, and blazed away into the depths, and finished the beast, Benaiah, with only the old time weapon, can do nothing unl',11 he gets on a level with the beast, anfl so he jumps into the pit, and the lion with shining teeth of rage, and claws lifted to tear to shreds the last vefitige of human life, springs for the man, while Benaiah springs for the beast. But the quick stroke of the steel edge flashed again, and again, and again, until the snow was no longer White' and the right foot of j /iumphant Benaiah is half covered with the tawny mane of the slain horror of Palestine. Now you see how emphatic, and tragic, and tremendous are the words of my text: "He went down and slew a lion in V, pit in a snowy day." Why put that In the Bible? Why put it twice in the Bible, once in the book of Samuel, and here in the book of Chronicles? Oh the practical lessons are so many for you and for me. What a cheer in this subject for all those of you who are in conjunction of hostile circumstances. Three things were against Benaiah of my text in the moment of combat, the snow that impeded his movements, the pit that environed him in a small space, and the lion with open jaws and up- \ifted paw. And yet J hear the shot of Benaiah's victory. Oh, men and women of three troubles. You say, "I could stand one, and I think I could stand two; but three are at least one too .« There Is a man in business perplexity, and who has sickness in his family, and old age is coming' on. Three troubles; a lion, a pit and snowy day, Phere is a good woman with failing health, and a dissipated husband, and a wayward boy— three troubles!

Yet Pli tbe, negk, Q| ;ion, or threshes his arms around him :o revive circulation of the blood, and then goes at the lion, which was all the more fierce and ravenous because of the sharp weather. Inspiration here admits atmospheric hindrance. The snowy day at Valley Forge well -nigh put an end to the struggle for American independence. The snowy day demolished Napoleon's army on the way from Moscow. The inclemency of January and February weather has some years bankrupted thousands of merchants. Long succession of stormy Sabbaths has crippled innumerable churches. Lighthouses veiled by the snow on many a coast have failed to warn off from the rocks the doomed frigate. Tens of thousands of Christians of nervous temperament by the depression of a snowy day almost despair of reaching heaven. Yet, in that style of weather Benaiah of the text achieved his most celebrated victory; and let us by the grace of God become victor over influences atmospheric. If we are happy only when the wind blows from the clear northwest, and the thermometer is above freezing point and the sky is an inverted blue cup of sunshine poured all over us, it is a religion 95 per cent off. Thank God there are Christians, who, though their whole life through sickness has been a snowy day, have killed every lion of despondency that dared to put its cruel paw against their suffering pillow. It was a snowy day when the pilgrim fathers set foot, not on a bank of flowers, but on the cold New England rock, and from a ship that might have been more appropriately called after a December huricane than after a "Mayflower," they took possession of this great continent. And amid more chilly worldly circumstances many a good man or a good woman has taken possession of a whole continent of spiritual satisfaction, valleys of peace, and rivers of gladness, and mountains of joy. Christ landed In our world not in the month of May, but In the stormy month of December, to show us mat we might have Christ In winter weather, The Pathos of a Single Hfo. One of these single women, after living alone in her little hut on Cape Cod, until old age, a reticent, miserly, creature, became at sixty suddenly and violently insane. Her physician, wiser than his kind, prescribed 'no medicine, but procured a huge doll and the clothes of a baby, and gave them to her. She was at once quieted She treated the doll as if it were alive fed it, slept with it in her arms, wor ried over Its diseases, ran to the neigh bors to tell of its sayings and pretty ways.

"My mother-in-law, Mrs. Elizabeth Wolfe, at the age of 72 yeai*s, was attacked with a violent form of salt rheum; it spread all over her body, and her hands and limbs were dreadful to look at. At the same time, my little daughter Clara, who was? just one year old, was attacked by a similar disease, like scrofula. It appeared in taege Sores under each side of her neck; had the attendance of the family physician and other doctors for a long time, but semed to grow worse. I read of many people cured of scrofula by Hood's Sarsaparilla. J Aa soon as we gave Hood's Sarsaparilla to Clara, she began to get better, and before the first bottle was gone, the sores entirely healed up and there has never been .any-siig-n of thadiBoose.since. She is. a Healthy, Robust Child. Her grandmother took Hood's Sarsaparilla at the same time, and the salt rheum decreased in its violence and a perfect cure was soon effected.
