I A Oon|iul l,emnn from the Story nf Joseph In KgjrpW-Jonm Our Mediator In Be- •nrlng- the Ilroad of Everlasting Life. The following discourse, apropos to the gathering of our bountiful harvest was delivered by Rev. T. DeWitt Tal- inage in the Brooklyn Tabernacle, from the text: Te -hull not »oe mr face exoept roar brother bo with vou.-lionlsls xllll., 8. This summer, having crossed eighteen of the United Stated, north, uouth, east and west, I have to report the mightiest harvests that this country or any other ever reaped. If the grain gamblers do not somehow wreck these harvests, wo are about to enter upon the grandest scene of prosperity that America has ever witnessed. But while this is so In j our own country, on the other side of j the Atlantic there lire nations threatened with famine, and the most dismal ory that is ever heard will I fear bo uttered, the cry for bread. 1 pray God that the contrast between our prosperity and their want may not be as sliarp as in tho lands referred to by my text. There was nothing to eat. Plenty of corn in Egypt, but ghastly famine in Canaan. The cattle moaning in tho stall. Men, women and children awfully white with hunger. Not tho failing of one crop for one summer, but tho falling of all the crops for seven years. A nation dying for lack of that which is so common on your table, and so little appreciated; the product ol harvest field, and gristmill, and oven; the price of sweat and anxiety, and struggle—bread! Jacob, the father, has the last report from tho flour-bin, and hu finds that everything is out, and he says to his sons: "Hoys, hook up the wagons and start for Egypt, and get us something to cat." The fact was, j there was a great corn-crib in Egypt. The people of Egypt huvo been largely taxed in nil nges, at the present time paying between seventy and eighty per per cent, of llielr products to tho government. No wonder In thut time they had a large eoru-ertb, and it was full. To that crib they cuino from the regions round about—those who were famished— some paying for corn In money; when the money was exhausted, paying for tho corn in sheep and cattle, and horses und camels; and when they wore exhausted, then selling their own bodies and their families Into slavery. The morning for starting out on the •rusade for bread has arrived. Jacob gets his family up very curly. But before the elder sons start they say something that makes him tremble with emotlcu from heud to foot, and burst into tears. Tho fact was that these elder Hons hud once before been in Egypt to get com, und they had been treated somewhat roughly, tho lord of the corn-crib supplying them with corn, but saying at tho close of the interview: "Now, you noed not come back here for any more corn unless you bring something bettor than money—oven your younger brother, Benluinin. Ah I Benjamin—that very name was suggestive of all .tenderness. The mother, bad died at the birth ol that son—a spirit coming and another spirit going- and the very thought of parting with Benjamin must have been a heart-break. The keeper of the corn-crib, nevertheless, says to these elder sons: "There Is no heed of your coming here any more for corn unless you bring Benjamin, your father's darling." Now Jacob and hla family very much needed .broad; but what a struggle It would be to give up this son. The Orientals are very demonstrative in their grief, and I hear the butwaillng of the father as these older sons keep reiterating in hla ears the announcement of tile Egyptian lord: "Ye shall not see my fauo unless your brother be with you." Why did you tell them you had a brother?" said the old man, complaining and chiding them. "Why, father," they said, "he asked us all about our family, and we had no idea he would make any such demand upon UB as be has made." "No use of asking: me," •aid the father; "I can not, I will not, give up Benjamin." The fact was that the old man had lost children; and when there has been bereavement in a household and a child taken it make* " the other children in the household more precious. So the day for departure was. adjourned, and adjourned, and adjourned. Still the horrors of the famine increased, and louder moaned the cattle, and wider open cracked the .earth, and more pallid became the cheeks, until Jucob.ln despair, cried out to his sons: "Take Benjamin Out sends a larger portion 10 iivi^„u.,„, Or, as the Bible quaintly pnts it: "Benjamin's mess was Ave. times as much as any of theirs." Be quick and send word back with the swiftest camel to Canaan to old Jacob that "Benjamin is well; all is well; he is faring sumptuously; tho Egyptian lord did not mean murder and death, hut he meant deliverance and life, w hen ho announced to us on that day: 'Ye shall not sec my face unless your brother bo with you.' " Well, my friends, this world is famine-struck of sin. It docs not yield a single crop of solid willsfnctlon. It Is dying. It is hungry-bitten. The fact that it docs not, can not, feed a man's heart was well illustrated in the life of the English comedian. All the world honored him—did everything for him that tho world could do. He was applauded in England and applauded in tho United .Stales. He roused up nations into laughter, lie had no equal. And yet, although m.-m.y pc-oplo supposed him entirely happy, and that this world was coinpletly satiating his soul, he sits down and writes: "I never in my life put on a new hat that it did not rain and ruin it. 1 never went out in a shabby coat because it was raining and thought all who had the choice would keep indoors, that the sun did not burst forth in its strength and bring out with it all the butterflies of fashion whom I knew and who know me. I never consented to nccept a part Ihatcd, out of kindness to another, that 1 did not get hissed by the public and cut by tho writer. I could not take a drive for a few minutes with Terry without being overturned and having my olbow-bone broken, though my friend got. off unharmed. I could not make a covenant with Arnold which I thought was to make my fortune without making his instead, than in an incredible space of time—1 think thirteen months—I earned for him twenty thousand pounds and for myself one. I nin persuaded that if I were to set up as a beggar, every one in my neighborhood would leave off eating bread." That was the lament of the world's comedian and joker. All unhappy. The world did everything for Lord Byron that it could d ', and yet in his last moment ho asked a friend to come and sit down by him and read, as most appropriate to his case, the story of "Tho Bleeding lleart." Torrlglano, the sculptor, executed, after mouths of care and carving, "Madonna and the Child." Tho royal family came in and admired It. Everybody that looked at was in ccslacy; but one day. after all that toll, and all that admiration, because ho did not get as much compensation for his work as he had expected, lie took a mallet and dashed the exquisite sculpture into atoms. The world i» poor compensation, poor satisfaction, poor solace. Famine, famine in all the earth; not for seven years, but for six thousand. But, blessed be (lod, thoro Is a great corn-crib. The Lord built it. It is In another land. It .is a large place. An angel once measured it, and tu far as I can calculate It in our phrase, that eorn-urlb Is fifteen hundred miles long and fifteen hundred broad and fifteen hundred high; and it is full. Pood for all nations. "Oh!" say tho people, "we will start right away and get this supply for our soul." But stop a moment; for from the keeper of that corn-crib there comes this word, saying: "You shall not BOO my face except your brother bo with you." In other words, thoro Is no such thing as getting from Heaven pardon, and comfort, and eternal life, unless we bring with us our Dlvino brother, the Lord Jesus Christ. Coming without Him, wo shall full before wo reuoh the corn-crib, and our bodies shall be a portion for tho jackals of tho wilderness; bat eomlug with tho Dlvino Je- BUB , all tho granaries of Heaven will swing open before our soul, und abundance will bo given us. Wo shall be Invited to sit in tho palace of tho King and at the table; and while the Lord of Heavon, is apportioning from nis own table toother tubleB He will not forgot us; and then und there it will be found that; our Benjamin's mess is larger than all the others, for so it ought to be. "Worthy- is the ^nmb that was slain, to receive blessing, and riches, 1 against your r,oul, nnd u voice from the throne MmII stun you with tho announcement.: "Vou shall riot seo My face except you:- Brother ba with you." My text also suggests tho reason why so many people do not get any real comfort. You meet ten people; nine it them ai •> in need of some kind of condolence. There Is something in their health, or In their state, or In their domestic condition that demands sympathy. And yet the most of tho world's sympathy amounts to absolutely nothing. IVopIo go to tho wrong crib or they go in the wrong way. When the plague was in Rome a great many years ago there were eighty men who chanted themselves to death with the litanies of Gregory, the Great—literally chanted themselves to death—and yet It did not slop the plague. And all the music of this world can not halt the plague of the human heart. I come to some one whose ailments are chronic, and I say: "In Heaven you will never ba sick." That does not give you much comfort. What you want is u soothing power for your present distress. Lost children, have yon? 1 come to you and tell you that in ten years perhaps you will meet those loved ones before the throne of God. But there is but llttlo condolence in that. One dny is a year without them, and ten years is a small otcrnity. IVlint you want is sympathy now-—present help. I cotno to those of you who huvo lost dear friends, and say: "Try to forget them. Do not keep tho departed always in your mind." How can you forget them when every figure in tho carpet, and every bonk, and every picture, and every room calls out thoir name. Suppose I come to you and say by way of condolence: "God is wise." "O!" you say, "that gives mo no help." Suppose I eoine to you and say: "God, from all eternity, li.is arranged this trouble," "Ah!" you say, that docs mo no good." Then I say: "With tho swift feet of prayer go direct to tho corn-crib for a heavenly supply." You go. You say: "Lord, help mc; Lord, comfort me." But no help yet. No comfort yet. It 1 B all dark. What Is the matter? I huvo found. You ought to go to God aud say: "Here, O Lord, are tho wounds of my soul, and I bring with mc tho wounded Jesus. Let Ills wounds pay for my wounds, His bereavements for my bereavements, His loneliness for my loneliness, Uis heart-break for my henrt-breuk. O God! for the sake of tho Lord Jesus Christ—the God, the Man, the Benjamin, the Brother—deliver my agonized soul. O, Jesus of the weary foot, ease my fatigue. O, Jesus of tho aching head, heal my aching head. O, Jesus of tho Bethany sisters, roll away tho stone from tho door of our grave." That is tho kind of prayer that brings help, and yet how many of you are getting no help at all, for tho reason that there is in your soul, perhaps, a secret trouble. You may never have mentioned it to u single human ear, or you may have mentioned it. to someone who is now gono away, and that great sorrows is still in your soul.

Farmers throughout the entire country must be profoundly interested in any information relative to methods by which destruction from frost may bo averted Not only must the grower of wheat and corn be thus inttrested, but also the lo- bacoo raiser, tho vegetable cultivator, the cranborry producer and tho fruit farmer. The report of W. \V. Martlett, state superintendent of irrigation und forestry in North Dakota, made the present month, containB many useful facts from the experiences of that official with smudges on hi* farm in Ramsay county, near tho Manitoba border, lie says: "How to protect vegetation from injurious effects of frost is a subject of the greatest importance for it involves the prosperity and happiness of millions of people, il A. Huzen, professorof meteorology, stated in his able article of March 23, 1890: 'It b,is been estimated that in a single vcar nearly $2,000,000,000 were lost to "this country from frost destruction.' "On the nights of Saturday, August 22, and Wtdiiosduy A gust 26, 1 was at my t.irm, near Church's Ferry, Ramsey county, and watched the npproah und operation of the frost, and assisted in burn iug the smudge to ward off the danger. The experience wa? very inbtructive, giv ing a good opportunity to study both sides of the question. "Both night)) wore clear nnd the sky free from clouds. On the 231, or proper ly speaking on the morning of t'ue 23d, ut 5:23 o'clock, the temperature reached its minimum, 21) degrees. Wo started 11: smudge fires at 4:38 a. in. (on tho 231) thermometer, 30 degrees; a slight brcez. from the south; much mmsturu prevailed To all appearance the temperature was much increased by the smoko. I'ho in tensity of the frost crystals on the smoked wheat wus seemingly much decreased They melted very quickly in the hand, while tho unsuioked wheat retained its cold unchanged. Soon after an immense amount of Bnioke covered tho grain t-rigin- ating from our and our neighbors' smud ter, whether smok.; will or will not prevent frost. More knowlodgo upon the subject may cause a change of my views, but, according to the light I now possess, I cannot but he strong in my conviction that smoke is a sure preventive of frost or of its injurious effect upon fruit and grain and other forms of vegetation under the following conditions: When and where generated and applied in needful quantities and distributed in such a manner as to cover the grain during the entire lime of danger from the frost. Smoke llurlng' the Time of Dnnger. "On account of the uncertainty as to when tho fires should bo started, but owing principally to *,ho want of stifllcionl smudge piles, the fires havo usually been set at 2 to 4 a. m. of'tho night, and gouera'.ly when the fiost has commenced its destructive effects upon tho grain. All men know that thick clouds ob'cur- ing tho sky prevent frost, even on very cold nights, because they check radiation of head. Now, suppose a man could control the clouds at will, would he act wisely if he should wait until the frost hud actually appeared on the grain, or the temperature had been lowered to near th. freezing point. This is just what most of ui have been doing in North Dakota. We have made clouds oat of smoke, but gener ally not until the fretziug point has heei reached. I'ho uvideiicea are in my and str.mg thatsuioke can he siKc -'sslully u<ed to prevent frost.

Man is master of the lightning; il carries Hi news, drives the machinery and warms tlu buildings; tho sunlight engraves the pic ture upon the sensitive plate; sound is embalmed in the yielding wax, holding human thought to reappear in speech in future time to enlighten, guide am bless the human race. And this mastery has come in but the infancy or man's d velopment, prophetic of a mightier control, in his manhood, of the elements whereby many if not all the iinfavorabl and injurious climatic conditions of the earth will bo materially modified or fully prevented bj incentive skill or scientific methods.

He has b'en in the midst of its loath-dealing elements, has tasted of its poisoned well« and has forced his way over its treacherous sands, and over ground that crumbled beneath the weight of man or hor.-e. He tells the story of his ulventures as follows: "The valley and its towering black walls f barren rock are weird and strangely ublime in their desolation. For iniies aud miles the curious mountains may be seen outlined against the clear sky. From the top of Telcvcopti peak, tho highest, of he Panauiiut or western range which shuts the valley in, one may look down a lizzy black precipice 12,000 feet to tho level of tho valley ns dazzling white as now. Stretching liom the mountain's toot are the glistening fields of salt. Here and there are running streams of salt and mineral Wuters. To drink of them is to 'lie. The view closes in the gloomy cliffs I the Funeral mountains, which form an impenetrable barrier at tho east of tho canon. Tho scene is one of violent contrasts, of glaring whiles and dead blacks. "The valley is the most barren and tho lowest of a series in eastern California and ulhwosterii Nevada. At a rough eiti- iiiutc it is about 150 feet below the level of lhu sen. It runs generally north and outli, although its worst region turns to the northwest. This portion has been named M.'simile valh-y. It is a region far a than Death valley proper. The valley may be compared to lhu Grand canon •I the Colorado. It i s rather an immense basin than .. vallcv. It is about 140 ililes long, and its broadest p irt, is only 18 miles wide. In some parts it is no more than 15 miles in width. In this frightful place, baked and blistered by the intolerable heat, holdim.; within itself innumerable el> in ills of death, revealing strange aspects of natural desolation, our party has been at ft"»rk for month*. On either side of the valley, stretching almost its entiro length, is a range of mountains absolutely barren of animal and vegetable life. Tho western range is the Punimint, averaging in height about !),000 feet. The eastern range,is the Funeral, a suggestive and not unfit n une. The Funeral mountains rise fully 7,000 feet above the level of the sea. These mountains are black, with the exception of curious patches of red rock. Away to tho north is Mt. Magruder. Beyond in the distance rise tho heights of tho Sierras. Almost at tho southern limit of the valley is Mi. Ivnnwalch. Behind is tho 'Devil * playground,' u region of absolute barron- ness.
