DoWitt Talmago Chooses a Humble Subject To Tench n Practical l.oflHon In Diligence •nil Fcrncvernnct*—Tlio Kxiim.slto- neae <if the Divine Mt'eliniil'tin, of Which Mnn I. a 1'itrt. The following discourse was one among the many delivered by Rev T. Do- Witt Tnlmage during his preaching tour in England. The text is: The (ipldor takoth bold witli hor hands and It la king's pnlac»».—Proverbs xxx., SB. Permitted as I was a few days ago to attend the meeting of the British Scientific association, at Edinburgh, I found that no paper rend hnd excited more interest than that by Rev. Dr. McCook, of America, on the subject of spiders. It seems that my talented countryman, banished from his pulpit for a short time by ill-health, had in the fields and forests given himself to the Btudy of insects. And surely if it is not beneath the dignity of (!od to make spiders, It is not beneath the dignity of man to study them. We are all watching for phenomena. A sky full of stars shining from January to January calls out not so many remarks as the blazing of one meteor. A whole flock of robins take not so much of our attention as one blundering bat darting into the window on a summer eve. Things of ordinary sound, and sight, and occurrence, fail ] to reach us, and yet no grasshopper ever springs up in our path, no moth ever dashes into the evening candle, no mote ever floats in the sunbeam tluit pours through the crack of the window shutter, no barnacle on ship's hull, no burr on chestnut, no limpet clinging to a rook, no rind of an artichoke but would teach us a lesson if we were not so stupid. God in His ISible sets forth for our consideration the lily, anil the snowflnke, and the locust, and the stork's nest, and the hind's foot, and the aurora borealis. and the ant hills. One of the sacred writers, sitting amid the mountains, sees a hind skipping over the rocks. The hind has such a peculiarly shaped foot that it ean go over the steepest places without full­ ing, and as the prophet looks upon that marking of the hind's foot on rocks, and thinks of the Divine cave over him, He says: "Thou makest my feet like hind's feet that I may walk on high places." And another sacred writer sees tho ostrich leaving its egg in the sand of the desert, and without any caro of incubation, wall; off; and the Scripture says that is lilto some parents, leaving their children without any wing of protection or care. In ray text, inspiration opens before us tho gate of u palace, and we are inducted amid the pomp of the throne and the courtier, ;iud while we are looking around on the magnificence, inspiration points us to u spider plying its shuttle and weaving its net on the wall. It does not call us to regard the grand Burroundings of the palace, but to a solemn and earnest consideration of the fact that: "The spider taketh hold with her hands, and is in kings' pal aces." It is not very certain what was the particular species of insect spoken of in the text, but 1 shall proceed to learn from it the exquisitenoss of the Divine mechanism. The king's chamberlain comes into the palace and looks around and sees the spider on tho wall, tt .nd says, "Away with that intruder," and the servant ot Solomon's palace comes with his broom anil dashes down tho insect, saying: "What a loathsome thing it is." Hut under microscopic in speetion I And it more wondrous of construction than the embroideries on the palace wall anil the upli dslery about the win lows. All the machinery I of the earth j'onld not make anything so dolicate and beautiful as tho prehensile with which that spldorelutohos its prey, or us any of its eight eyes. We do not have to go so far up to see the power of God in tho tapestry hanging aroand the windows of Heaven, or in the horses or chariots of tiro with which the dying day departs, or to look at the mountain swinging out its sword-arm from under the mantle of darkness until It can strike with its sclmetarof tho lightning. I love hotter to study God in tho shape of a fly's wing, in tho formation of a fish's hcale, In tho snowy whiteness of a potid-lily. I lovo to track His footsteps in the mountain moss, and to hear His voice in the hum of the rye-Holds, and discover the rustle of llis robe of light in the south wind. Oh! this wonder of Divine power that can build a habitation for Ood in an apple blossom, and tune a bee's voice until it is fit for the eternal orchestra, and can say to a firefly; "Let there bo light;" and from holding an ocean in the hollow of His band goes forth to find heights and depths and length and breadth of om- nlpoteney In a dewdrop, and dismounts from tho chariot of midnight hurricane to cross over on the suspension bridge of a spider's web. You may take your telescope and sweep it across the heavens in order to behold the glory of Clod, but I shall take tho leaf holding the spider, and tho Bpl- der 'B web, and 1 shall bring tho microscope to my eye, and while I gaze and look and study and am confounded, I will kneel down In tlu grass and ory: "Great and marvelous are Thy works, Lord God Almighty !" Agulu, my text teaches toe that insignificance is no excuse for inaction. This spider that Solomon saw on tho wall might have said: "1 can't weuvo a web worthy of tills grout palace; what can I do amid all this gold embroidery? I am not able to make anything fit for so grand,a place, and so 1 will not wo*:k jny spinning-jenny." Not so, said t ie spider. "The spider taketh hold with her hands." Oh, what a lesson that is for you and me! Yon say if you had some great sermon to preach, if you only hud a great iiudtonoo to talk to, if you bod a groat army to miiishul, if you only had u constitution t<> write, if there was norm* tremendous thing >u tho world for you to do—ttien -you would show us. Yes, you would show usl What if the Levita iu the ancient temple had refused to Miuff_U«cttmUB strength to lift the ox. In the Lord 's army there is order for promotion; but you can not be a general until you have been a captain, a lieutenant and a colonel. It is step by step, it is inch by inch, it is stroke by stroke that our Christian character is budded. Therefore be content to do what God commands you to do. God is not ashamed to do small things. He is not ashamed to be found chiseling a grain of sand, or helping a honey bee. to construct its cell with mathematical • nccuracy, or tinging a bell in the surf, I or shaping tho bill of a chaffinch. What you do, do well, be it a great work or a small work. If teu talents, employ all the ten. If five talents, employ all the five. If one talent, employ the one. If only the thousandth part of a talent, employ that, "lie thou faithful unto death, and I will givo thee the crown of life." I tell yon if you aro not faithful to God in a small sphere, you would bo indolent and ig- signillcant in a large sphere. Again, my next text teaches me that repulsiveness and loathsomeness will sometimes climb up into very elevated places. You would have tried to have killed the spider that Solomon saw. You would have said: "This is no place for it. If that spider is determined to weave a web, let it do so down in the cellar of this palace, or in some dark dungeon." Ah! the spider of the text could not be discouraged. It clambered on, and climbed up higher and higher and higher, until after awhile it reached the king 's vision, and he said: "The spider taketh hold with her hands and is in kings' palaces." And so it often is now that things that are loathsome and repulsive get up into very elevated places. The Church of Christ, for instance, is palace. The King of Heaven and earth lives in it According to the Bible, her beams are of cedar, and her rafters of fir, and her windows of agate, and the fountains of salvation dash a rain of light. It is a glorious palace—the Church of Ood is; and yet, sometimes, unseemly and loathsome things creep up into it—evil-speaking, rancor, and slnnder, and backbiting, and abuse, crawling up on the walls of the church, spinning a web from arch to arch, and from the top of one communion tankard to the top of another communion tankard. Glorious palace in which there ought only to bo light, and love, and pardon, and grace; yet a spid 'r in the palace. Home ought to be a castle. It ought to be the residence of everything royal. Kindness, love, peace, patience and forbearance ought to be the princes residing there; and yet sometimes dissipation crawls up into that home, and the jealous eye comes up, and the scene of peace and plenty becomes tho scene of domestic jargon and dissonance. You say: "What is the matter with tho home?" 1 will tell you what is the matter with it. A spider in the palace. A well-devcrbped Christian character is a grand thing to look at. You see some man with great Intellectual and spiritual proportions. You say: "How useful that man must be!" Hut you find, amid all his splendor of faculties, there is some prejudice, some whim, some evil habit that a great many people do not notice, but that you have happened to notice, and it is gradually spoiling that man 's character—it is gradually going to injure his entire influence. Others may nut see It, but you are anxious In regard to his welfare, and now you discover it. A dead ily in the ointment. A spider in the palace. Again, my text teaches me that perseverance will mount into the king's palace. It must have Bcemed a long distance for that spider to climb into Solomon's splendid residence, but it started at the very foot of the wall and went up over the panels of Lebanon cedar, higher und higher, until it stood higher than the highest throne In all the nations—the throne of Solomon And so Uod has c'ieoreod it that many of those who are down in the dust of sin and dishonor shall gradually attain to the King's palace. We see it in worldly things. Who is that banker iu Phila delphiu? Why, he used to bo the boy that hold the horses of Stephen Girurd while the millionaire went in to collect his dividends. Arkwrlght toils on up from a barber's shop until he gets into the palace of invention. Sextus V toils on up from tho office of a swlncheard until he gets into (he palace of Rome. Fletcher toils on up from the most, insignificant family position until he gets into tho palace of the Christian eloquence. Hogarth, en graving pewter pots for a living, tolls on up until ho reaches the palace of world-renowned art. And Uod hath decided that, though you may be weak of arm, and slow of tongue, and bo struck through with a great many mental and moral deficits, by His Almighty grace you shall yet arrive in the King's palueo—not such an one as is spoken of in th$- text—not one of marble, not one adorned with pillars of alabaster and thrones of ivory, and flagons of burnished gold-but a palace in which God Is King und the angels of Heaven aro tho eup-bearers. The spider crawling up the wall of Solomon's palace was not worth looking after or considering, as compared with tho fact that we, who are worms of the dust, may at last ascend into tho palace of tho King immortal. Hy tho grace of God may we all reach. Oh, Heaven is not a dull place. It is not a worn-out mansion with faded eurtolns, und outlandish chairs, und cracked ware. No; It is as fresh, und fair, und beautiful as though it were completed but yesterday. Tho Kings of tho earth •jf the earth shall bring their honor i-id glory into it. A r I'.ieo means splendor of banquet. There will hi no common ware on that tnblo. There will be no unskilled musicians at the entertainment, Thero will bo no scanty supply of fruit or bovornge. There have been banquets spread-that coat a million of dollars each; but who oau toll tho untold wealth of that banquet? I do not know whother John's duserlulion of it is literal or figurative. -A groat many wise people toll mo it is figurative! but prove it I do not know but that open, the guests dismount, (he palaei is tilling, and nil the chalices flash Ing with penrl and amethyst, mid carbuncle are lifted to the lips of the myriad banqueter*, while standing in robes of snowy white they drink to the honor of our glorious King. "Oh," you say, "that is too grand a place for yon inn) for me." No, it. is not. If a spider, according to the text, could crawl upon the wall of Solomon's palace, shall not our poor sonls.through the blood ofChrist,mount up from the depths of theii' sin anil shame, and finally reach the palace of the eternal King? "Wlierrsin abounded, grace shall much more abound, that whereas sin reigned unto death, even so may grace reign through right enus- iiess unto eternal life by Jesiw Christ our Lord." One flash of that ruining glory obliterates the sepuleher. Yearsago, with lanterns ami torches, and a guide, we went down in the Mammoth eavo of Kenlueky. You may walk fourteen miles and see no sunlight. It is a stupendous place. Some places of the roof of the cave are one hundred feet. high. The grottoes filled with weird echoes seades falling from invisible height to invisible depth. Stalagmites rising tip from the floor of the cave—stalactites ileseeml- ing from the roof of the cave, joining each other and making pilloar of the Almighty's sculpturing. There are rosettes of umulhyst in halls of gypsum. As the guide carries his lantern ahead of you, Hie shadows have an appearance supernatural and spectral. The darkness is fearful. Two people getting lost from their guide only for a few hours, years ago, were demented, and for years sat in their insanity. You feel like holding your breath as you walk across the bridnv.- that seem to span the boitomless abyss. The guide throws his ea'eium IcONOEiNSED NEWS. the caverns, and tosses from from depth lo every plunge a into rolls and at of the awful power made such a place as ft may he literal. _I_do jioAJuinisJ— light down and the light rock to rock, depth, making new revelation that could have that. A sense of suffocation comes upon you as you think Ihat you are two hundred and lifty feet in a straight line from ilie sunlii surface of the earth. The guid • after awhile takes you into what is raited tin* "Star Chamber," and then be says lo you: "Sit here." and then he lakes the lantern and goes down under the rocks, and it gets darker and darker, until the night is so thick that the hand an inch from the eye is unobservalde. And then, by kindling one of the lanterns, and placing it in a cleft of the rock there is a rellrelion east on the dome of the cave, and there are stars coming out in eon ,t"Ilat ions — a brilliant night Heaven and you involuntarily exclaim "Heautiful, bountiful!" Then he takes the lantern down on other depths of the cavern, and wanders on, and wanders on, until he comes up from behind the rocks gradually, and it seems like the dawn of the morning, and it gets brighter and brighter. The guide is a skilled ventriloquist, and he imitates the voices of the morning, and soon the gloom is all gone, and you stand congratulating yourself over the wonderful spectacle. Well, there are a great many people who look down into the grave us a great cavern. They think it. is one thousand miles subterraneons, and uli tho echoes seem to be the voices of despair, and the cascades seem to be the falling tears that always full, and the gloom of earth seems coining up in stalagmite, and the gloom of the eternal world seems descending in the stalactite, making pillars of indescribable horror. Tho grave is no such place as that to me, thank Ood! Our Divine Guide takes us down into the great caverns, and we hive the lamp lo our feet and the light to our path and all tho echoes in the. rifts of the rock are anthems, and all the falling waters aro fountains of salvation, and, after awhile, we look up, and behold! the cavern of the tomb has become ti King's star chamber. And, while we aro looking at tho pomp of it, an everlasting morning begins to rise, and all the tears of earth erystali/.c into stalagmite, rising up in a pillar on the one side, and all the glories of Heaven seem to bo descending in a stalactite, making a pillar on the other sido, and you push against the gato that swings between the two pillars, and as tho gate flashes open yon find it is one of the twelve gates which aro twelve pearls. Illessed bo God, that through this gospel the.

The substance of these is that Jenkins is inefficient, thut he is a bully, thut lie exceeded his authority in sending the Normannia passengers to Fire Island, that in doing so he exposed the passengers of the Normiiiinia to inhuman danger, that he is generally all around unfitted for the place, and furthermore is cheap political nuisance, lie thinks the matter mid got three at the head of Mct'or-1 and concludes that if it does Jenkins will be deposed.

For a time I feared our house, which w called Ited Cliff, would be washed away but we were not seriously damaged The parly on tho lee fared still wors and were glad to get back to Hod Cliff, On April 18, there being constant day light, Mr. Peary took me with him on a tour of Whale Sound and lnglelield Gulf. We traveled by night and slop! by duy. Our sledges, sixteen and fifteen feet long, were drawn by thirteen line Esquimau dogs.

We repeatedly made forty miles In a single inarch, and it was a line sight to see these thirteen beauties, with heads up and tails waving over their backs, dashing over the Ice. We visited all the settlements, and once I was inveigled Into spending a ulght In one of their snow igloos, but declined all fur ther invitation.

THIS l'l,A(illK IX KUKOI'IC. THE DEMOCRATIC PLANK. Mow Hie in-mix-nits are Trying In shew 'Mint IU,- TiirllV I'liink Doesn't Menu Aliy- iliiin:. Not a few shrewd democrats are endeavoring to produce the impression these days that the tariff plank of their national platform dors not mean any- thiuu in particular. They assert that Hie plank, appearances lo the contrary uot withstanding, is not loaded: that In .spile of it, Were the democracy lo sneered in electing Cleveland, no serious effort would be made I" rlcinge the existing tariff policy Iu any radical way. Of course, it is easy to understand what prompts such utterances on the part of very wideawake and rathrr unscrupulous ilriuorrals anxious to have their party succeed ill November, They realize that unless the ronviclion can be generally produced that the democracy made no emphatic and significant deliverance ui Chicago in the direction or free trade, or, having made il, does not propose tu stand by it, the jig is up, and Cleveland, as iu ISSS. Is bratrn. Now Colonel Henry Wallrrson, who played a foremosi part in shaping the tariff plank of the Chicago convention, is a ware of the rxislenir of these nieiii- bi 'i's of ids party. And, naturally, they gel no i -oiulorl from uiin, since the rol- oiirl, as I 'leryhody knows, has tbei-our- UKI' "f his I 'ree -tradi' convictions. In a lvcriit number of the Louisville Couriet- .loiirnal hr has si >un-iliiriir to say loueh- iliL' Ihr I a fit t" [lank iu question which is well calculated to give Ihr democratic turUY-trimmcrs dumb ague. "II Is certainly true," he says, "that five million of democrats stand on ihr Chicago tariff plank as it is, and not as it was in- lended to be." We all know how it was "intended to lie." The plank, us reported to the convention, was intended to throw at leasl a sop to protection, lint Ihr eouvciillon rejected It by a voir of fit;I to ;M2. and adopted the substitute submitted by the extreme free trade democrats under the lead of Colonel Waltcrson. In this same urli- rlr the colonel takes pains to slate that "lite description of Mr. Cleveland as a semi-protectionist is purl of the republican plan of campaign, hut it will not succeed, because it is not accurate." Imagine Itow the democriillc trimmers will shiver and stand aghast as they read this reference to Mr. Cleveland! Nor does the doughty colonel rest con- lent with insisting upon the tariff' plunk as it is Iu all its free-trade significant*..-, lie goes for the base democrats who favored the less offensive original plank. He says: "Who it. was who may be held distinctly and directly answerable for the attempt in the last national democratic convention to fasten a republican tariff plank upon the democratic party we shall probably never know; although it is certain thai Ihr group of party managers in the convention, led by the ains and money of Mr. Whitney, tho last surviving democratic protectionist of tin- Kandall school, exhausted lis efforts lo defeat the sound and honest .substitute presented by .Ml*. Neul, of Ohio, und to rivet upon the party tho dishonest and scandalous essay reported by the platform committee." This Is a terrible charge—at all events, ratlin* trrriblr— which Is brought aga'msi Mr. Whitney. (Jan it be that Mr. Whitney Is simply a republican in disguise'; It occurs to us that the colonel ought to get the democratic na- 'llonal committee to investigate Mr. Whitney. It is clear that the democratic trimmers are not going to accomplish anything this time. The free traders control the democracy by a large majority, aud will see that Ihr buttle is fought out on their side on free-trade Hues. For yours,"' says the Courier-Journal, the republican leaders have professed to desire a square parly light on square parly issues. At last they have their wish." Yes; at lasl they have their wish. In the battle which Is being waged Harrison and; protection are arrayed against Cleveland and free- trade. A square light to end in a glorious republican victory.
