Dr. Tal- hiage, who is still absent on his summer preaching tour in the West and Southwest, has bre- pared for to-day a sermon on "The AH-Seelng," the text selected being Psalm 94 :9, "He that formed the eye, shall he hot see?" The imperial organ of the human system Is the eye. All up and down the Bible Odd honors It, extols It, Illustrates It, or arraigns It. Five hundred and thirty-four times it Is mentioned In the fiible. Omnipresence—"the eyes of the Lord are in every place." Divine care —"as the apple of the eye." The clouds —"the eyelids of the morning." Irreverence—"the eye that mocketh at its father." Pride—"Oh, how lofty are their eyes!" Inattention—"the fool's eye in the ends of the earth." Divine inspection—"wheels full of eyes." Suddenness—"in the twinkling of sn eye at the last trump." Ollvetic sermon— "the light of the body is the eye." This morning's text—"He that formed the eye, shall he not See?" The surgeons, the doctors, the anatomists and the physiologists understand much of the glories of the two great lights of the human face; but the vast multitudes go on from cradle to grave without any appreciation of the two great masterpieces of the Lord God Almighty. It God had lacked anything of infinite wisdom, he would have failed In creating the human eye, We wander through the earth trying to see wonderful sights, but the most wonderful sight that we ever see Is not so wonderful as the instruments through which we see it. It has been a strange thing to me for forty years that some scientist, with enough eloquence and magnetism, did not go through the country with illustrated lectures on canvas thirty feet square, to startle, and thrill, and overwhelm Ghristendom with the marvels of the human eye. We want, the eye taken from all its technicalities, and some one who shall lay aside all talk about the pterygomaxlllary fissures, and the sclerollca, and the chiasma of the optic nerve, and in common parlance, which you and I and'everybody can understand,- present the subject. We have learned men who have been telling us what our origin is and what we were. Oh! if some one should come forth from the dlssectlng-tabie and from the class-room of the university and take the platform, and, asking the help of the Creator, demonstrate the wonders of what we are! If I refer to the physiological facts suggested by the 'former part of my text, it is only to.bring out in a plainer way the theological lessons of the latter part of my text, "He ; that formed the eye, shall .he not see?" I suppose my text referred to the human eye, since it excels all others in structure and in adaptation. The eyes of fish, and reptiles, and moles, and bats, are very simple things, because they have not much to do. There are insects with a hundred eyes, but the hundred eyes have less faculty than the human eyes. The black beetle swimming the summer pond has two eyes under water and two eyes above the water, but the four insectile are not equal to the two human. Man, placed at the head of: all living creatures, must have supreme equipment, while the blind fish In the Mammoth Cave of Kentucky have only an undeveloped organ of sight, an apology for the eye, which, If through some crevice of the mountain they should get into the sunlight, might tie; developed into positive .eyesight. In the first chapter of Genesis we flnd.that God, without any consultation, created the light, created the trees, created the fls)i, created the fowl, but when he was about to make man he called a convention of Divinity, as though to Imply that all the powers of Godhead were to be enlisted in the achievement. "Let us make man." Put a whole ton of emphasis on that word "us." "Let us make man." And if God called a convention of Divinity to create man, I think the two great questions In that conference to create a soul and how to make an appropriate window for that emperor to look out of. See ; how God honored the eye before he created It, He cried, until chaos waa irradiated with ^the. ^utterance, !'Let there be light!" In other words, before he introduced man info this temple of the world he illuminated it, prepared'!!' for the eyesight. A n d so, after the. last 'human eye has been destroyed in 1 the final 'demolition pf the world, stars are to fajl, and the sun is to cease its shining, and the moon is to turn into blood. In other words, after the human eyes are no more to be profited by their shining, the chandelleps of heaven are to be turned out, Go'd, to educate and to bless and to help, the human eye, set in the mantel of heaven two lanips^-s gold lamp and a silver lamp—the one for the day and the other for the night. To show how God honors the eye, look at the two halls built for the residence of the eyes, seven bones making the wall for each eye, the seven bones curiously wrought together, Kingly palace of ivory Is considered rich, but tho halls for the residence of the human eye are richer by so much as human bone }s more sacred than elephantine tusk. See how God honored the eyes when he made a roof for them, so that the sweat of toll should not smart them; and the rain dashing against the forehead should not drip Into them; the eyebrows not bending over the eye, biii reaching to the right and to the left, so that the rain an4 the sweat should be compelled tp drop upon the cheek, Instead ojf falling Into this divinely protected human eyesight, Bee how Gpd honored the eye in the fact »preeente4 by anatomists and phy^olar gists that there are eight hundred contrivances in every eye. For sliutters, the eyelids opening and ing thirty thousand times a day- eyelashes so constructed that they have their selection as to what shall be atU muted, saying to the dust, ','Sfay out," and saying to trje light, "Come in." for inside sustains tfre iris, or p,up|l pf a? She light Is eye* of the owi fs fcliftd in the tft§ eyes of some cfeatufes are t>Hnd at ftlfH but the humafi eye so marvfel- btisly constructed can see both by day and by night. Many of the other crea* itufeS of God can move the eye only from side to side, but the human eye so marvelously constructed has one muscle to lift the eye, and another muscle to lower the eye, and another muscle to roll It to the right, and another muscle to roll Jt to the left, and another fhuscle passing through a pulley to turn it found and round—an elaborate gearing of six muscles as perfect as God could make them. There also Is the retina, gathering the rays of light and passing the visual Impression along the optic nerve, about the thickness of the lampwick—passing the visual Impression on to the sehsorium, and on Into the soul. What a delicate lehs, what ah exquisite screen, what soft cushions, what wonderful chemistr'y of the human eye! The eye washed by a slow stream of moisture whether we sleep or wake, rolling imperceptibly over the pebble of the eye and emptying into a bone of the nostril. A contrivance so wonderful that It .can see the sun, ninety-five million miles away, and the point of a pin. Telescope and microscope In the same contrivance. The astronomer swings and moves this way and that, and adjusts and readjusts the telescope until he gets it to the right focus; the mlcroscoplst moves this way and that, and adjusts and readjusts the magnifying glass until it IS prepared to do its work; but the human eye,'without a touch, beholds the star and the smallest insect. The traveler among the Alps, With one glance taking In Mont Blanc and the face of his watch to see whether he has time to climb it. Oh! this wonderful camera obscura which you and I carry about with us, so to-day we can take in our friends, so from the top of. Mount Washington we can take in New England, so at night we can sweep into our vision the constellations from horizon to horizon. So delicate, so semi-infinite, and yet the light coming ninety-five millions of miles at the rate of two hundred thousand miles a second is obliged to halt at the gate of the eye, waiting for admission until the portcullis be 1 lifted. Something hurled ninety-five millions of miles and striking an instrument which has not the agitation of even winking under the power of the stroke. There, also, is the merciful arrangement of the tear gland, by which the eye is washed and from which rolls tne tide which brings the 'relief which comes in tears when some bereavement or great loss strikes us. The tear not an augmentation of sorrow, but the breaking up of the Arctic of frozen grief in the warm gulf stream of consolation. Incapacity to weep, is madness or death. Thank God for the tear glands, and that the crystal gates are so easily opened. Oh! the wonderful hydraulic apparatus of the human eye! Divinely constructed vision! Two light-houses at the harbor of the immortal soul, under the shining of which the world sails in and drops anchor. What an anthem of praise to God is the human eye. The tongue is speechless and a clumsy instrument of expression as compared with It. Have you not seen it flash with Indignation or kindle with enthusiasm, or expand with devotion, or melt with sympathy, or stare with fright, or leer with villainy, or droop with sadness, or pale With envy, or fire with revenge, or twinkle with mirth, or beam witn love? It is tragedy and comedy, pastoral and lyric in turn. Have you not seen its uplifted brow of surprise, or its frown of wrath, or its contraction of pain? If the eye say one thing and the lips say another thing, you believe the eye rather than the lips. The eyes of Archibald Alexander and Charles G. Flnney. were the mightiest part of their sermons. George .Whitefleld enthralled great assemblages-with his eyes, though they were crippled with strabismus. Many a military chieftain has with a look hurled a regiment to victory or to death. Martin Luther turned his great eye on an assassin who came to take his life, and the villain fled. Under the glance of the human eye, the tiger, with five times a man's strength, snarls back into the African jungle. But those best appreciate the value of the eye who have lost it. The' Emperor Adrian by accident put out the eye of his servant, and he said to his servant: "What shall I pay you in, money or In lands? Anything you ask me. I am sorry I put your eye out." But the servant refused to put any financial estimate on the value of the- eye, and when the Emperor urged and urged again the matter, he said: "Oh, Emperor, I want nothing but my lost eye." Alas for those for whom a thick and impenetrable vail is drawn across the face of the heavens and the faces of one's own kindred. That was a pathetic scene when a blind man lighted a torch at night and was found passing along the highway, and some one said: "Why do you carry that torch, when you can't see?" "Ah'," said he, "I can't see, but I carry this torch that others may see me and pity my helplessness and not run me down," Samson, the giant, with his eyes put out by the Philistines, is more helpless than the smallest dwarf with vision undamaged. AH the sympathies of Christ were stirred when he saw Bartimeus witli dark* ened retina, and the only salve he ever inade that we read of was a mixture of dust and saliva and a prayer, with, which h> cured the eyes of a man blind from his nativity, The value of the eye is shown as much by its catastrophe as by its healthful action. Ask the man who for twenty years has not seen the sun rise. Ask the man whp for half a century has not seen the face of a friend. As in'the hospital the victim of ophthalmia. Ask the man whose eyesight perished In a powderblast. Ask the fJartimeus who never met a Christ, or th,e man born blind who is to die blind. Asfe him. This morning, in my imper. feet way, I have only hinted at the splendors, the glories, the wonders, the divine revelations, the apocalypses of the human eye, and I stagger back'from the awful portals of the physiological miracle which must have taxed the Ingenuity pf Qod, to cry ou.t in your ears the words of my text, "He that formeth the eye, gjiajj he not see?" Shall fJerr scope? Shall Fraynnofer not know as much, as hjs, spectroscope? Shall Swam* merdan not know as mu,ch as his naU croscope? Shall Dr, Hoojce not know as much as his inlcropieter?

"You converted me twenty years ago," said a black irtfth to rtiy father. "How so?" said my father. "Twenty years ago," said the othef, "in the old school-house prayer meeting at Bound Brook you said In your prayer, 'Thou, God, seest me,' and I had no peace under the eye of God until 1 became a Christian." Hear it: "The eyes of the Lord are ih every place." "His eyelids try the children of men." "His eyes were as a flattie of fire." "I Will guide thee with mlhe eye." Oh! the eye of God, so full of pity, so full of powefj so full of love, so full of Indignation, so full of compassion, so full of mercy! Mow it peers through the darkness! How It outshines the day! Haw it glares Upon the offender! How it beams Upon the pehlteht SoUl! Talk about the human eye being indescribably wonderful —how much more Wonderful the great, searching, overwhelming eye of God? All eternity past and all eternity to come on that retina! But you say, "God Is in one world and I am in another world; he seems so fiir off from me; I don't really think he sees what is going on in my life." Can you see the sun ninety-five millions of miles away, and do you not think God has as prolonged vision? But you say, "There are phases of my life, and there are Colors, shades df color, In my annoyances and my vexations that I don't think God can understand." Does not God gather up all the colors and all the shades of color in the rainbow? And do you suppose there is any phase or any shade in your life that he has not gathered up In his own heart? Besides that, I want to tell you that it will all soon be over, this struggle. That eye of yours,, so exquisitely fashioned and strung, and hinged and roofed, Will before long be closed In the last slumber. Loving hands will smooth down the silken fringes. So he glveth his beloved sleep. A legend of St. Frotobert is that his mother was blind, and he was so sorely pitiful for the misfortune that one day in sympathy he kissed her eyes, and by miracle she saw everything. But It is not a legend when I tell you that all the blind eyes of the Christian dead under the kiss of the resurrection morn shall gloriously open. Oh! what a day that will be for those who went groping through this world under perpetual obscuration, or were dependent on tho hand of a friend, or with an uncertain staff felt their way; and for the aged, of dim sight, about whom it may be said that "they which' look out of the windows are "darkened," when eternal daybreak comes In. What a beautiful epitaph that was for a tombstone In u European cemetery: "Here reposes In God, Katrlna, a saint, eighty-five years of age and blind. The light was restored to her May 10th, 1840." Higfteit tt all In L«av«iifig 2o*tt.~-latest . 'God's Word. A 'prayer that is winged with a cry reaches .the throne quick, because it flies straight. The sinner has no cross, and never thinks of being saved in any way except by works. When the devil can't get behind the preacher in any other way, he sometimes joins the choir. When men seek God aright, they do It as the hungry seek bread, and as the famishing seek water. If we step where God tells us, we shall flnd when our foot comes down, that it is resting on the rock. Anybody can be pleasant to pleasant people, but it takes grace to be pleasant to unpleasant people. Christ lifted the world toward God, because he was willing to stoop down and put his arms around it. The. test of greatness with God, is not how high we have got up, but how low are we willing to go down? If you can trust God to. take you out of sin while you are in it, will It be any harder for him to keep you out after he gets you out? When a cry from the heart reaches the throne 1 , God's hand comes down to give help, without caring whether it is a millionaire or a beggar who is praying. .* ' Tho Nutlon's Curse.
