L DOUGLAS $3 . *5. CORDOVAN, FRENCH&IENAMEUEDCALR * BROOKLYN, N. ¥., Sent a—Rev. t)r- Talfnage, who is now in Australia, whence he will shortly sail for Ceylon and India,, has selected as the subject for to-day's sermon through the press, ''Communion of Saints." the text chosen being Judges '.2:vi, "1'hen said they unto him, say noW Shibboleth; and he said Sibboleth; for he could not frame to pronounce it right. Then they took him, and slew him at the passages of Jordan/' Do you know the difference of pronunciation between shibboleth and Sibboleth? A very small und unimportant difference, you say. And yet, that difference was the difference between life and death of a great many people. The Lord's people, Gilead and Ephraim, got into a great fight, and Ephraim was worsted, and on the retreat came to the fords of the river Jordan to crosa Order Was given that all Ephraimites coming there be slain., But how could it be found out who were Ephraimites? They were detected by their pronunciation. Shibboleth was a word that stood for river. The Ephraimites had a brogue of their own, and when they tried to say "shibboleth" always left out the sound of the "h." When it was asked that they say shibboleth they said sibboleth. and were slain. "Then said they unto him, say now .shibboleth; and he said sibboleth, for he could not frame to pronounce it right. Then they took him and slew him at the passages of Jordan." A very Email difference, you say, between Gilead and Ephraim, and yet how much intolerance about that small difference! The Lord's tribes in our time—by which I mean the different denominations of Christians—sometimes magnify a very small difference, and the only difference between scores of denominations to-day is the difference between shibboleth and sibbo- leth. The church of God is divided into a great number of denominations. Time would fail me to tell of the Calvinists, and the Arminians, and the Sab- batarians, and the Baxterians, and the Bunkers, and the Shakers, and the Quakers, and'the Methodists, and the Baptists, and the Episcopalians, and the Lutherans, and -the Cong-re- gationalists, and the Presbyterians, and the Spiritualists, and a score of other denominations of religionists, some of them founded by very good men, some of them founded by very egotistic men, some of them founded by very bad men. But as I demand for myself liberty of conscience, I must give that same liberty to every other man, remembering that he no more differs from me than I differ from him. I advocate the largest liberty in all religious belief and form of worship. In art, in politics, in morals, and in religion, let there be no gag law, no moving of the previous question, no persecution, no intolerance. ' You know that the air and the water keep pure by constant circulation, and I think there is a tendency in religious discussion to purification and moral health. Between the fourth and sixteenth centuries the church proposed to make people think aright by prohibiting discussion, and by strong censorship of the press, and rack, and gibbet, and hot lead down the throat, tried to make people orthodox; but it was discovered that you can not change a man's belief by twisting of his head, nor make a man see differently by putting an awl through his eyes. There is something in a man's conscience which will hurl off the mountain that you threw upon it, and unsinged of the flre, out of the flame will make red wings on which the martyr will mount to glory. In that time of which I speak, between the fourth and sixteenth centuries, people went from the house of God into the most appalling iniquity, and right along by consecrated altars there were tides of drunkenness and licentiousness such as the world never heard of, and the very sewers of perdition broke loose and flooded the church. After awhile the printing press was freed, and it broke the shackles of the human mind. Then there came a large number of bad books, and where there was one man hostile to the Christian religion, there were twenty men ready to advocate it; so I have not any nervousness in regard to this battle going on between Truth and Error. The truth will conquer Just as certainly as that God is stronger than the devil Let Error run if you only let Truth run along with it. Urged on by sceptic's shput and transceudentalist's spur, lot it run, God's angel? of wrath q,re in hot pursuit, and quicker than eagle's beak clutches out a hawk's heart, God's vengeance will tear it to pieces. I propose to speak to you of sectarianism—its origin, its evils, and its cures.. There are those who would Quaker rathe* roughly tot some of hla relitfibus sentiments and the Qflaltei- Said.- '-George, 1 am as thou art; I am for bringing all men to the hope uf the gospelj therefore, if thou wilt not qtiatrel with me about my broad brlin, 1 will not quarrel With tliee about thy black gown.

There are parents who do ndt think it wrong to caricature and jeer the peculiar forms of religion in the world, and denounce other sects and other denominations. It is very often the case that that kind of education acts just opposite to what was expected, and the children grow up, and, after a while, go and see for themselves; and, looking in those churches, and finding that the people are good there, and they love God and keep his commandments, by natural reaction they go and join those very churches. 1 could mention the names of prominent ministers of the gospel who spent their whole life bombarding other denominations and who lived to see their children preach the gospel in those very denominations. But it is often the case ,that bigotry starts in a household, and that the subject of it never recovers. There are tens of thousands of bigots 10 years old. I think sectarianism and bigotry also rise from too great prominence of any one denomination in a community. All the other denominations are wrong, and his denomination is right because his denomination is the most wealthy or the most popular, or the most influential, and it is "our" church, and "our" religious organization, and "our" choir, and "our" minister, and the man tosses his head, and wants other denominations to know their places. It is a great deal better in any community when the great denominations of Christians are about equal in power, marching side by side for the world's conquest. Mere outside prosperity, mere worldly power, is no evidence that the church is acceptable to God. Better a barn with Christ in the manger than a cathedral with magnificent harmonies rolling through the long drawn aisle, and an angel from heaven in the pulpit, if there be no Christ in the chancel, and no Christ • in the robes. Bigotry is often the child of ignorance. You seldom find a man with large intellect who is a bigot It is the man who thinks he knows a great deal, but does not That man is always a bigot The whole tendency to education and civilization is to bring a man out of that kind of state of mind and heart There was in the far east a great obelisk, and one side of the obelisk was white, another side of the obelisk was green, another side of the obelisk was blue, and travelers went and looked at that obelisk but they did not walk around it One man looked at one side, another at another side, and .they came home each one looking at only one side; and they happened to meet, the story says; and they got into a rank quarrel about the color of that obelfsk. One man said it was white, another man said it was green, another man said it was blue, and when they were in the very heat of the controversy a more intelligent traveler came, and said, "Gentlemen, I have seen that obelisk, and you are all right, and you are all wrong. Why didn't you walk all around the obelisk?" Look out for the man who sees only one side of a religious truth. Look out for the man who never walks around about these great theories of God and eternity and the dead. He will be a bigot inevitably—the man who only sees one side. There is no man more to be pitied than he who has in his head just one idea—no more, no less. More light, less sectarianism. There is nothing that will so soon kill bigotry as sunshine—God's sunshine. So I have set before you what I consider to be the causes of bigotry. I have set before you the origin of this great evil. What are some of the baleful effects? First of all it cripples investigation. You are wrong, and J am right, and that ends it No taste for exploration, no spirit of iuvestiga- »««« From the glorious realm of guess I'll take the teoid fdadj thefe* is so much sharp'shooting on the haf* *ow road 1 guess I'll try the broad foad!" franfei^I. so hated the Lutherans that he said that i* he thought thett was one drop of Lutheran blood itt his veins he would pttfleture them and let that drop out.

Suppose, while 1 speak there were a common enemy coming up the bay, and all the forts around the harbor began to fire into each other—you would cry out, "National sutcidel why don't those forts blaze away in one direction, and that against the common enemy?" And yet I sometimes see in the church of tho Lord Jesus Christ a strange thing going on: church against church, minister against minister, denomination against denomination, firing away into their own fort, or tho fort which ought to be on tho same side, instead of concentrating their energy and giving one mighty and everlasting volley against the navies of darkness riding up through the bay! Perhaps I might forcefully illustrate this truth by calling your attention to an incident which took place about twenty years ago. One Monday morning at about 2 o'clock, while her 900 passengers were sound asleep in her berths dreaming of home, the steamer "Atlantic'' crashed into Mars Head. Five hundred souls in ten minutes landed in eternity. Oh, what a scene! Agonized men and women running up and down the gangways and clutching for the rigging, and the plunge of the helpless steamer and tho clapping of the hands of the merciless sea over the drowning and tho dead threw two Take no Substitute for Royal Baking- Powder.

It stops all investigation. While each denomination of Christians is to present all the truths of the Bible, it seems to" me that God has given to each denomination an especial mission to give particular emphasis to some one doctrine; and so the Calvinistic churches must present the sovereignty of God, and the Arminian churches must present man's free agency, and the Episcopal churches must present the importance of order and solemn ceremony, and the Baptist churches must present the necessity of ordinances, and the Congregational church must present the responsibility of tho individual member, and the Methodist church must show what holy enthusiasm, hearty congregational singing Cftft accomplish. While each denomination of Christians must set forth ail the doctrines of the Bible, I foe} it h especially incumbent upon ea0h Denomination to put particular empfcasis. on some one doctrine, Another great damage ^one by the sectarianism aoA l%Qtor of the ch.ujrolj Is that it disgusts people wltb the £krl«ti«a religion, NSW, my f W njds, the ejwph p| Qp4 was neyer intended for a war feaw-ftok, people el brave quartermaster pushing out with' 1 the life line until he gets to the rock, and see these fishermen gathering up the shipwrecked, and taking them into the cabins, ' and wrappinj them in the flannels smig and warm: and see that minister of the gospel, with Ihree other men, getting into s life boat, . and pushing out for the wreck, pulling away across the surf, and pulling away until they saved one more man, and then getting back witli him to the shore. Can those men ever forget that night? .And can they evei forget their companionship' in peril, companionship in struggle, companionship in awful catastrophe and rescue? Never! Never! In whatever part of the earth they meet, they will be friends when they mention the story of that night when the "Atlantic" struck Mars Head. Well, my friends, our world has gone ' into a worse shipwreck. Sin drove it on the rocks. The old ship has lurched and tossed in the tempests of six thousand years. Out with the lifeline! I do not care what denomination carries it. Out with tho life boatl I do not care what denomination rows it Side by side, in the memory of common hardships, and common trials, and common prayers, and common tears, let us be brothers forever. We must be. One army of the living God, To his command we bow; Part of the host have crossed the flood, And part are crossing now, And I expect to see the day when all denominations of Christians shall join hands around the cross of Christ and recite the cveed; "I believe in God the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth, and in Jesus Christ, and in the communion of saints, and in life everlasting.

DON'T KNOW MOW To PLAN, New Vork'g Tenement* the ttegult t»f 3 norance bf Scientific Planning, The greatest evil which ever befell New York city was the division oi the blocks into lots of 25 by 100 feet, Biiys Scribtter. So true is this that no other 1 disaster can for a moment be compared with it. Fires, pestilence and financial trouble are as nothing In comparison, for from this division has arisen the Now York system of tenement-houses, tho worst curse which ever afflicted any great community, The fact that so much of the land is held in such parcels is •ur misfortune, but the obstacle is not insuperable, as shown fav- our office buildings. The difficulty has arisen and persistently flourishes owing entirely to our lack of knowledge of the art of scientific planning. For who would waste money in erecting unnecessary walls, halls, etc., if ho know how to obtain the samo amount of rentable spaco much bettor lighted without- them? By tho present system tho ground is encumbered, the light obstructed, and the structure rendered unhealthy and unQt to live in, and all this is accomplished at u vastly increased expense over what the same rentable space, well lighted might bo obtained for. Great sums of monoy aro yearly squandered upon making tho structure unfit to live in. Then other groat sums aro contributed by charitable people to re- lievo the distress which thoso horrible structures engender. Hospitals are kept full, children dio, misery, disoaso and crime flourishoth, because people aro huddled together without light and air, arid all this happens simply because tho principles of economical planning aro not understood.
