Dr. Tal* mage has selected as tho subject for his seimo« for to day, through the press: "Narrow Escapes," the text being 1 taken from .lob 19: xx, "1 am escaped With the skin of my teeth." Job had it hard. \Vhnt with boils, I and bereavements, and bankruptcy, and a fool of a Wife, he wished he was dead; and 1 do not blame him. His flesh was gone, and his bones were dry. ^ His teeth wasted away until ) nothing but the enamel seemed left. He cries out. "I nra escaped with the skin of my teeth." | There has been some difference of opinion about this passage. St. Jerome and Schultens. and Drs Good, and Poolc, and Barnes have all tried (.their forceps on Job's teeth. You deny my interpretation, and say, I "What did Job know about tlio enamel of the teeth?" lie knew everything 1 about It Dental surgery is almost as old as tho earth. The mummies of Eypt, thousands of years old, are found to-day with gold illling in their teetli. Ovid, and Horace, and Solomon, and Moses wrote about these important factors of the body. To other provoking complaints, Job, I think, has added nu exasperating toothache, and, putting- his hand aguinst tho inflamed face, he says, "I am escaped with the skin of my teeth." A very narrow escape, you say, for Job's body and soul; but there are thousands of rn«»n who make just as narrow escape for their soul. There was a time when tho partition between them and ruin was no thicker than a tooth's enamel; but, as Job i finally escaped, BO have they. Thank It , God! Thank Godl Paul expresses the snme idea by a different figure when he says that some people are "saved as by fire." A vessel at sea is in fliimes. You go to the stern of tho vessel. The boats have shoved oft'. The flames advance; you can endure tlio heat no longer on your face. You slide down on the side of the vessel, and hold on with your fingers, until tho forked tongue of the fire begins to lick the buck of your hand, and you feel that you must fall, when one of the life-boats comes back, and tlie passengers say they think they have room for one more. The boat swings under yon—yon drop into it—you are saved. So some men are pursued by temptation until they are pnrtially consumed, but after all get off—"saved as by fire." But I like the figure of Job a little butter than that of Pitnl, because the pulpit has not worn it out; and I want to show you, if (Jod will help, that some men make narrow escape for their souls, and nro saved as "with tho skin of their teeth." It is as easy for some, people to look to the Cross as for you to look to this pulpit. Mild, gentle, tractable, loving, you expect them to become Christians. You go over to tho store and sny, "Orandon joined the chureh'yes- tprday." Your business comrades say, "That is just what nuig-ht have been expected; he always was of that turn of mind." In youth, this person whom I describe was always good, lie never laughed when it was improper to laugh. At 7, he could sit an hour in church, perfectly quiet, looking neither to the right hand nor to the left, but straight into the eyes of the minister, as though he understood tho whole discussion about the eternal decrees. He never upset things, nor lost them. Ho floated into the kingdom of God so gradually that it is uncertain just when the matter was decided. Here is another one, who started in life with.an uncontrollable spirit. He kept tlio nursery in an uproar. His mother found him walking on the edge of the house roof to see if he could balance himself. There was no horse lie dare not ride—no tree he could not cliuib. His boyhood was a long series of predicaments;.his manhood- was reckless; his midiife very wayward. But now he is converted, and you go over to the store and say, "Arkwright joined the , church yesterday." Your friends say, "It is not possible! You must be joking!" You say, "No; I tell you tho truth. He .joined the church." Then they reply. '•There is hope for any of us if old Arkwrtght has become a Christian!" Jn other words, we all admit that it is more difficult for some men to accept the Gospel than for othera J may be addressing- some who have cut loose from churches, and Bibles, and Sundays, and who have at present no intention of becoming Christians themselves, but just to see what is going on; and yet you may find yourself escaping before you hear the end, as "with the skin of your teeth." I do not expect to waste this hour, I have seen boats go off irom Cape May or Long- Branch, and drop their nets, and after a while come ashore, pulling 1 in the nets without having- caught'a single fish. Jt was not a good day, or they had not the right kind of a net. But we expect pa such, excursion today. The water is full of flshj tUe wind is iu tho right direction; the Gospel net is strong-. O, thou, who didst help Simou and Andrew to fish, show us to-day how to cast the not on the right side of the ship! . Listen to (wo or three questions. Are you as happy as you used to be consistent, UvJntf .and dying la the faith 6f the Gospel. Would "y'ou not like to live the same quiet life, and TAL- die the same peaceful death? 1 received ft letter, sent me by one tvho has rejected the Christian religion. It says: "1 am old enough to know that the joys afld pleasures of life are evanescent, and lo realize the fact lhat it must be comfortable in old age to believe in fotnething relative to the future, and to have a faith in some system that proposes to save. I am free to confess that I Would be happier if I could exercise the simple and beautiful faith that is possessed byr many whom I know. I am hot willingly out of the church of out of the faith. Jjy state of uncertainty is one of unrest. Sometimes 1 doubt my immortality, and look upon the deathbed as the closing scent*, after which there is nothing. What shall I do that I have not done?" Ahl scepticism is a dark and doleful land. Let me sny that this Bible is either true or false. If it be false, we are as well off as you; if it be true, then which of us is safer? Let me also nsk whether your trouble has not been that you confounded Christianity with the inconsistent character of some who profsss it. You are a lawyer. In your profession there are. mean men and dishonest men. Is that anything against the law? You are a doctor. There nre unskilled and contemptible men in your profession. Is that anything against medicine? You arena merchant There are thieves and defraud- ors in your business Is that anything against merchandise? Behold, then, the unfairness of charging upon Christianity the wickedness of its disciples. We admit some of the charges against those who profess religion. Some of the most gigantic swindles of the present day have been carried on by m&mbers of the church. There are men iu the churches who would not be trusted for five dollars without good collateral 'security. They leave their business dishonesties iu the vestibule of the church as they go in and sit at the communion. Having concluded the sacrament, they get up, wipe the wine from their lips, go out, and take up their sins where they left off." To serve tho devil is their regular work; to servo God a sort of play spell. AVith a Sunday sponge they expect to wipe off from their business slate all the past week's inconsistencies. You have no more right to take such a man's life as a specimen of religion than you have to take tho twisted irons and split timbers that lie on the beach at Coney island as a specimen of an American ship. It is time that we drew a line between religion and the fi ail ties of tho e who p.-ofess it To-day I invite you back into the good old-fashioned, religion of your fathers—to the God whom they worshiped, to tho Bible they read, to tho promises on which they leaned, to the cross on which they hung their eternal expectations. Vou have not been happy a day since you swung off; you will not be happy a minute until you swing back. Again: There may be some of you who, in the attempt after a Christian life, will have to run against powerful passions and appetites. Perhaps it is a disposition to anger that you havo to contend against; and perhaps, while in a very serious mood, you hear of something that ma ices you feel that you must swear or ale. I know of a Christian man who was once so exasperated that he said to a mean customer, "I can not swear at you myself, for I am a member of the church: but if you will go downstairs my partner in business will swear at you." All your good resolutions heretofore have been torn to tatters by explosions of temper. Now there is no harm in getting mad if you only get mad at sin. You need to bridle and baddle these hot-breathed passions, and with them ride down injustice and wrong. There are a thousand things in the world that we ought to be mad at. There is no harm in getting red hot if you only bring to the forge that which needs hammering. A man who has no power of righteous indignation is an imbecile. But be sura it is a righteous indignation, and not a petulancy that blurs, and unravels, and depletes the soul. There is a large class of persons in midiife who have still in tnem appetites that were aroused in early manhood, at a time when they prided themselves on being a "little fast," "high livers," "free and easy," "hail fellows well mat." They are now paying in compound icieivst for troubles they collected twenty years ago. Some of you are trying to escape, and you will—yet very'narrowly, "as with the skin of your teeth." God and your own soul only know what the struggle is. Omnipotent grace 1ms pulled out many a soul that was deeper in the mire than you are. They line the beach of heaven—the multitude whom Qod has rescued from the thrall of suicidal habits. If you this day turn your back on the wrong, and start anew, God will help you. Oh, the weakness of human help! Men will sympathize for a while and then turn you off. If you ask for their pardon they will give it, and say they will try you again; but, falling away again, under the power of temptation, they cast you off forever. But God forgives seventy times seven; yea, seven hundred times; yea, though this be the ten thousandth time he is more earnest, more> sympathetic, more helpful this last time than when you took your first misstep. fin 6pportunitfr to, get la stroke, until tvith one final etfort, in which the Muscles are distended, ftrid the veins stand out. and ' the blood starts, the swarthy habit falls under the knee of the victor—escaped at last as with the skin of his teeth 'The sh'p Ertiina, Lound Jroin Gottenburg to tlarwich, was sailing on, when the man on the lookout saw something that he pronounced a vessel bottom up. There was something on it that looked like a sea gull, but was afterward found to be a waving handkerchief. In the small bfta*, the crew pushed out to the Avreck, and found that it was a cabslzed vessel, and that three men had been digging- their way out through tho bottom of the ship When the Vessel capsized they had no means of escape. The captain took his penknife and dug away through tlie planks until his knife broke. Then an old nail was found, with which they attempted to scrape their way out of the darkness, each one working-until his hand was wellnigh paralyzed, and h<3 sank back faint and sick. After long and tedious work, the light broke through the bottom of the ship A handkerchief was hoisted. Help came. They were taken on board the Vessel and saved. Did ever men come so near a watery grave without dropping 1 into it? How narrowly they escaped—escaped only "with the hkin of their teetli." Try this God, y'e who have had the bloodhounds after you, and who have thought that God had forgotten you. Try him, and see if ho will not help. Try him and see if ho will not pardon. Try him. and see if ho will not save. The flowers of spring have no bloom so sweet as the flowering of Christ's affections. The sun hath no warmth compared with the glow of his heart. The waters have no refreshment like the fountain that will slake the thirst of thy soul. At the momont the reindeer stands with his lip and nostril thrust into tho cool mountain torrent, the hunter inny be coming through tlu thicket Without crackling a stick under his foot, ho comes close by tho stag, aims his gun. draws the trigger, and the poor thing rears in its death agony nnd falls backward, its antlers crashing on the rocks; but' tha ' p uitin?' hiart that drinks from tho water brooks of God's promise shall never be fatally wounded, and shall never die. This wor'd is a poor portion for your soul, oh business man! An eastern king had graven upon his tomb two fingers, representing as sounding upon each other with a snap, and under them the motto, "All is not worth that." Apicius Coelins hanged himself •because his hteward informed him that he had only eighty thousand pounds sterling left All of this world's riches make but a small inheritance, for a soul. Robespierre attempted to win the applause of tho world: but when he was dying a woman came rushing through tlie crowd crying to him: "Murderer of my kindred, descend to hell, covered with the curses of every mother in Fran eel" Many who havo expected the plaudits ot the- world havo died under its Anathema Marana tha.

There sometimes comes a time on ship-board when everything must bo sacriHed to save the passengers. Tho cargo is nothing, the rigging nothing. The captain puts the trumpet to his lip and shouts, "Cut away the mastl" Some of you have been tossed and driven, and you have, in your effort to keap the world, well nigh lost your soul. Until you Lave decided this matter, lot everything else go. Overboard with all those other anxieties and burdens! You will have to drop . the sails of your pride, and cut away the mast! With one earnest cry for he'p, put your causa into the hand of him who helped Paul out of the breakers of Melita, and who, above the shrill blast of the wrathiest tempest thatever blackened the sky or shook the ocean, can hear the faintest imploratit n for mercy. I shall conclude, feeling that some of you, who have considered your case hopeless, will take heart again, and that with a blood-red earnestness, such as you have never experienced before, you will start for the goo'l land of the Gospel—at last to look back, saying,. '.-What a great ris'v I ran! Almost lost, but saved! Just trot through, and no more! Escaped by the skin of my teetli."

Most people connect with tho thought of going to Europe an idea of considerable expense, but thero fti-e many people who go free, and firms that advertise for people who nro willing to go free.

A reporter had hardly entered tho door of the employment agency on t» street when two men camo in together carrying a cheap, rope- strapped tin trunk. "la that all.'" asked tho man at tho desk, addressing one of t.io newcomer 1 s. "That's all." "Bo hero at half-past nine to-morrow morning. Leave tho trunk there." The prospective passenger had been there buioro and hai made his arrangements. A minute later two fairly dressed young men camo in. The genius at the desk "siaoj them up" with a glauoo. It waa just such a look as tho pawnbroker pivos an unfamiliar face. The verdict was unfavorable. The men didn't look enough liko work and appeared rather too prosperous. The fellow at the desk answered a few questions with "yea" and "no" and then asked abruptly: "Where aro you going?" "Well," said one of them, "wo di "n't much care. Wo thought we'd go to lariti." "Wo don't run any boats to Paris," was the serious, quick-spoken rejoinder, with an accent and expression that plainly meant: "That's all there is to bs said." • •But " "Wo don't run any boats to Paris. Do you belong on t ,o other Bide?" "No; we belong 1 here." "I thought KO. Tuis is intended for people who have come hero from Europe and want to get back." _Tho next man was ragged and had his coat collar turned up.
