Dr. Talmage, Whb has left India and is now on his homeward journey, has selected as the subject of his sermon today through the press: "The Looking-Glass," his text being Exodus 88:81 "And he made the laver of brass, and the foot of it was of brass, of the looking-glasses ot the women assembling." We often hear about the gospel in John, and the gospel in Luke, and the gospel in Matthew; but there is just as surely n gospel ot Moses, and a gospel of Jeremiah, and a gospel of David. In other words, Christ is &s certainly to be found in the Old Testament as in the Now. \Vh6n c the' Israelites WCM marching through the wilderness they carried their church with them. They called it the tabernacle. It was a pitched tent; very costly, very beautiful. The framework was made of forty-eight boards otaccacia wood setiu sockets of silver. The curtains of the place were purple, and scarlet, and blue, and fine linen, and were hung with most 'artistic loops. The candlestick of that tabernacle had shaft, and branch, and bowl of solid gold, and the figures of cherubim that stood there had wings of gold, and there were lamps of gold, and snuffers of gold, and tongs of gold and rings of gold; so that scepticism has sometimes asked, Where did all the precious material come from? It is not my place td furnish the precious stones, it is only to tell that they wore there. I wish now more especially to speak of the laver that Svos built in the midst of that ancient tabernacle. It was a great basin from which the priests ^washed their hands and feet. The water came down from the basin in spouts and passed away after the cleansing. This laver or basin was made out of > the looking glasses of the •women who had frequented the tabernacle, and who had mado these their contribution to the furniture. These looking glasses were^not made of glass, but they were brazen.** The brass was a very superior quality and polished until it reflected easily the features of those who looked into it. So that this laver of looking glasses spoken of in my text dldi double work; it not only furnished the water in which the priests wnshed themselves, but it also, on its shining; polished surface, pointed out the spots of pollution on the face which needed ablution. Now, my Christian friends, as everything in that ancient tabernacle was suggestive of religious truth, and for the most part positively symbolical of truth', I shall take that laver of looking glasses spoken of in the text as all suggestive of the gospel, which first shows us our sins us in a mirror, and then washes them away by divine ablution. Oh, happy day, happy day, When Jesus washed my sins awayl Ihave to say, that this is the only look- Ing glass in which a man cau see himself as ne is. There are some mirrors that flatter the features and make you look Better than you are. Then there are other mirrors that distort vour features and 'make you look worse than you are; but I want to tell you that this looking glass of the gospel shows a man just as he is. When the priests entered the ancient tabernacle, one glance 1 at the burnished- side of this laver showed them their need of cleansing; so this gospel shows the soul its need of divine washing. • All have sinned, and come short of the glory of God." That is one showing. "All we, like sheep, have gone astray." That is another showing. "From the crown of the head to the sole of the foot there is no health in us." That is another showing. The world calls these defects, imperfections, or eccentricities, or erratic behavior, or "wild oats," or "high living;" but the gospel calls them sin, transgression, filth—the abominable thing that God hates. It was just one glance at that mirror that made Paul cry out, "Oh, •wretched-man that I am. who shall deliver me from the bodyof this death?" and that made David cry out, "Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean;" and that made Martin Luther cry out, "Oh, my sins, my sins!" lam not 1 talking about bad habits. You and I do not need •• any Bible to tell us that bad habits are wrong, that blasphemy and evil-speaking are wrong. But'I am talking of'a sinful nature, the source of all bad thoughts, as wellias'of, all bad actions. The Apostle /Paul calls their roll in tb.e first i chapter of 'Komans. ; They f "are a regiment 'of death encamping around every heart, holding it in a tyranny from which nothing but the grace of God can deliver it. Here, for instance, is ingratitude. Who has not been guilty of that sin? If a man hand us a glass of water, we say, "Thank you;'' but for the ten thousand mercies that we are every day receiving from the hand of God, how little expression of gratitude —for thirst slaked_. for hunger fed, for shelter, and sunshine, and sound sleep, and clothes to wear—how Jittle thanks! I suppose there are men 50 years of age who have not yet been down ori their knees in thanksgiving to God for his, goodness. ' Besides that ingratitude of our hearts, there is pride (who has not felt it?)—pride that will not submit to God, that wants its own way—a nature that prefers '.wrong some- times.instead or right—that prefers to wallow instead of rise up.' I do not care what you calj '.that; I • am- not 'going to quarrel with any * theologian, , or -'any? man who/ makes any pretensions to,theology. I do not'care whether ypu'call it "total depravity," or something else; I simply make the .announcement of God's word, aiHrnied and confirmed by the experience, of hundreds otGbrMian peopletkth 1 tew: hot, tty "broth®, nn- riiay h»*« teen born, o* what ia»y have bean youv hstitusts or Jott ftts lost by reason »f sta. ymi say, "what is tho as* this-ot showing ajfcan his faults wheii Jbe can't get rid o* them?" None! "What waTthl u|e of that burnlsfied .sarfacs to this later of lookinet glares spoken 6f in the text, .if it only showed the spots on the countenance and Ihe ne«d of washing, and there was nothing to wash with?" Glory b« to God, I flnd that this laver of looking glasses was filled with fresh water every morning, and the priest no sooner looked on its burnished sidfc and saw his need of cleansing, than he washed and was clean, —glorious typo ot the gospel ot my Lord Jesus, that first shows ajnan his sin and then washes it all away. I want you to notice < which tho priest washed—the laVor of looking glasses—was filled With fresh water every morning. The servants of the tabernacle brought the water in buckets and poured it into this laver. So it is with the gospel of Jesus Christ; it has a fresh salvation every day. It is not a stagnant pool filled with accumulated corruptions. It is living water, which is brought from the eternal rook to wash away the sins of yesterday— of one moment ago. "Oh," says some one. "I was a Christian twenty years ago!" That does not mean anything to me. What are you now? We are not talking, my brother, about pardon ten years ago, but about pardon now—a fresh salvation. Suppose a time Of war should come, and I could show the government that I had been loyal to it twelve years ago, would that excuse me from taking an oath of allegiance now? Suppose you ask me about my physical health, and I should say I was well fifteen years ago— that does not say how I am now. The gospel of Jesus Christ comes and demands present allegiance, present fealty, present moral health; and yet how many Christians there are seeking to live eutirely.in past experience, who seem to have no experience Of present mercy and pardon I When I was on the sea, and there came up a great storm, and officers and crow and passengers all thought we must go down, I began to think of my life insurance, and Whether, if I were taken away, my family would be cared for; and then I thought is the premium paid up? and I said, yes. Then I felt comfortable. Yet there are men who, in religious matters, are looking back to past insurance. They have let it run oiit, and they have nothing for the present, no hope nor pardon—falling back on the old insurance policy of ten, twenty, thirty years ago. If I want to find out how a friend feels toward me, do I go to the drawer and find some old yellow letters written to me ten or twelve years ago? No; I go to the letter that was stamped the day before yesterday in the postoflico, and I find how he feels toward me. it is not in regard to old communications we had with Jesus Christ, it is communications we have now. Are we not in sympathy with him this morning, and is ho not in sympathy with us? Do not spend so much of your time in hunting in the wardrobe for tha old, worn out shoes of Christian profession. Come this morning and take the glittering robe of Christ's righteousness from the savior's hand. You say you were plunged in the fountain of the savior's mercy a quarter of a century ago. That is nothing to me; I toll you to wash now in this laver of looking glasses and have your soul made clean. I notice also, in regard to this laver of looking glasses spoken of in the text, that the priests-always washed both hands and feet. Tho water came down in spouts, so that, without leaving any filth in the basin, the priests washed both hands and feet. So the gospel of Jesus Christ must touch the very extremeties of our moral nature. A man cannot fence off a small part of his soul and say, "Now, this is to be a garden in which I will have all the fruits and flowers of Christian character, while outside_it shall bo the devil's commons." No, no! it will be all garden or none. I somo.- times hear people sav, "He is a very good man except in politics.". Then he is not a very good man. v A^eligi'ori'thaVwill not take a man through an autumn election will not be worth anything to him in June, July and August. They say he is a useful sort of a man, but he overreaches in a bargain. I deny tho statement. If he is a Christian anywhere, he will be in his business. It is very easy to be good in a prayer meeting, with surroundings, kindly and blessed, but not so easy to be a Christian behind the counter, when by one skillful twitch of the goods you can hide a flaw in the silk so that the customer cannot see it. ^ It is very easy to be a Christian with a psalm book in your hand and a bible in your lap, but not so easy when you can go into a shop and falsely tpll the merchant you can get those goods at a cheaper rate in another store, so that he will sell them to you cheaper than ho can afford to sell them. The fact is, the religion of Christ is all pervasive. If you rent a house, you expect full possession of it. You sav, "Where are the'keys oE those rooms? If I pay for this whole house, I want possession of those rooms.". And the grace o£ God when it comes tdf a soul .takes lull possession of a man, or goes away'and takes no aitd, "f cannot drtefc Wife, ifly «fi»tt And- 4ft 1 thirsty:" fcndhs dabbed it to the 'ground. Bl • ed t» Godl there is enotfgh wate* foe All trie host — enough for captains and host. "Whosoever will may come and take of „, j M i- ltl „»,,,.? *,, t ^ PIAW6 iM THE PLAT* tie water of Hfeireely"-<-ft laver broad the earth, high as the heavona, and deep as hell. But 1 notice also, in regard to this laver of looking glasses spoken of in the text, that the washing in it was imperative, and not optional, when the priests come into the tabernacle (you will find this in the thirtieth chapter of Exodus), God tells them that they must wash in that laver or die. The priest might have said: "Can't I wash elsewhere? iwasheu in the laver lit homo and now you wantmeto Wash here." God says, "No matter whether or not you have washed before. Wash in this laver or die." "But, "says the priest, "there is water just as clean as this—why won't that do?" "Wash here," says God, "or die." So it is with the gospel of Christ—it is imperative. There is only this alternative; keep your sins and perish, or wash them away and live. But says some one, "Why could not God have made more ways to heaven than one?" I do not know but he could have made half a dozen, I know he made but one. You say, "Why not have a long line of boats running from here to heaven?" I cannot say, but I simply know that there is only one boat. You say, "Are there not trees as luxuriant as that on Calvary?— more luxuriant, for that had neither buds nor blossoms; it was stripped and barked!" Yes. yes, there have been taller trees than that and more luxuriant; but the only path to heaven is under that One tree. Instead of quarreling because there tire not more ways, let us be thankful to God there is one—one name given unto men whereby we can be saved—one laver in Which all the world may wash. So you see What a radiant gospel this is I preach. I do not know how a man can stand stolidly and present it, for it is such an exhllarant gospel. It is not a mere whim or caprice; It is life or death; it is heaven or hell. You come before your child, and ? )u have a present in your hand, ou put your hands behind your back and say, "Which hand will you take? In one hand there is a treasure, in the other there is not." Tho child blindly chooses. But God our Father, does not do that way with us. Ho spreads out both hands, and says, "Now this shall be very plain, In that hand are pardon, and peace, and life, and the treasures of heaven; in that hand are punishment, and sorrow, and Woe. Choose, choose for yourselves!" "He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved, but ho that believeth not shall bo damned." And that is all for you! Oh, can you not love him? Come around this laver, old and young. It is so burnished you can see your sins; and so deep, you can wash them all away. Oh, mourner, hero bathe your braised soul; aud sick one, here cool your hot temples in this laver. Peace! Do not cry any more, dear soxil! Pardon for all thy sins, comfort for all thy afflictions. The black cloud that hung thundering over Sinai has floated above Calvary, and burst into the shower of a savior's tears. I saw in Kensington Garden a picture of Waterloo a good while after the battle had passed, and the grass had grown all over the field. There was a dismounted cannon, and a lamb had come up from the pasture and lay sleeping in the mouth of thai; cannon. So the artist had represented it—a most suggestive thing. Then I thought how the war between God and the soul had ended; and instead of the announcement, "The wages of sin is.death." there came the words, "My peace I dive unto thee;" and amidst the batteries of the law that had once quaked with tho fiery hail of death, I beheld the lamb of God which taketh away the sin of the world. I went to Jesus as I was, Weary, and worn, and sad: I found in him a resting place, 'And he has made me glad.

' The floor is paved with mosaic, and there is no tub. the bath'being simply a sunken space about three feet in depth in one corner. This is walled with marble, railed with bronze, and marble steps lead to it. The walls are covered with ten-inch- square tiles, painted by an American artist with a design of waves, ashes, and other objects suggestive of the sea, and above this^a'frieze, a trellis wreathed with vines. lu'-niany houses the bath-room is too often regarded entirely from a'utilitarian point of view; and while it is true that absolute cleanliness and .hygienic plumbing are the chief consideration, beauty should also be aimed at here as , in any other room of the house.

The whole world may, orae and wash in thjs laver and be clean. When our civil war had passed, the KOV- rnment of the United States made proclamation of pardon to the common soldiery nthe confederate army, but not to the hief soldiers. Thp gospel of Christ does ot act in that way, It pays pardon for 11, but especially for the chief of sinners. do not now think of n single passage that ays a small sinner, may be saved, but I o think of passages that say a great sin-t ner may be saved.
