Night Was about to conie down on , ; Babylon. The shadows of her two htm- '• dred and fifty towers began to lengthen. v The .Euphrates rolled on, touched by jpth^Ilery splendors of the setting sun; I?' and gates of brass, burnished and gltt- ',;-; teHng, opened and shut like doors of •-. flame, The hanging gardens of Baby- fcldtt, wet with the heavy dew, began to „ , pour, from starlit flowers and dripping : .; ( leaf, a fragrance for many miles around. \, The streets and squares were lighted t > for dance and frolic and promenade. v The theaters and galleries of art invited the wealth, and pomp, and gran- " d*ur of the city to rare entertainments. 'Elcenes of riot and wassail were min- ;;-gled in every street; and godless mirth, ''"and outrageous excess and splendid ^•'wickedness came to the king's palace, ''to 'do their mightiest deeds of dark•ness. , 'A royal'feast to-night at the king's palace! Rushing up to the gates are chariots, upholstered with precious • cloths from Dedan, and drawn by fire- eyed horses from Togarmah, that rear arid neigh in tho grasp of the charioteers, while a thousand lords dismount, . Xnd women, dressed in all the splen- /; dors of Syrian emerald, and the color^ blending of agate, and the chasteness of ;,! ; coral, and the sombre glory of Tyrlan -^purple, and princely embroideries, *. ^brought from afar by camels across the V'l desert, and by ships of Tarshish across f/f \ the sea.' J • Open wide the gates and let the ( guests come in. The chamberlains and ,'• cup-bearers are all ready. Hark to :5;; ^he.rustle of the silks, and to the carol ;of-the music! See the blaze of the jew- ',els! Lift the banners. Fill the cups. 'Clap the cymbals. Blow the trumpets. Let the night go by with gong, and dance, and 'ovation; and let that Baby- lonish tongue be palsied that will not jjvfe ,' say, "O, King Belshazzar, live forever." |F, a ,'L,<Ah! my friends, it was not any com- ,A.mon banquet to which these great peo- >' pie came. All parts of the earth had £- sent their richest viands to that table. "^Brackets and chandeliers flashed their flight upon-.tankards of burnished gold. 1 [Fruits, ripe and luscious, in baskets : '~ of silver, entwined with leaves, pluck,v ed from royal conservatories. Vases, '•} inlaid with emerald and ridged with 1 ' exquisite traceries, filled with nuts that ,,,:were threshed from forests of disant glands. -Wine brought from the royal • -Vats; foaming in the decanters and bub- ••bling in the chalices. Tufts of cassia rand frankincense wafting their sweet- Jness from wall and table. Gorgeous H ^banners unfolding in the breeze that through' the open window, bo- rlth the perfumes of hanging Fountains rising up from in., ;f ivory,' in jet's of crystal, to '$*' fall in clattering rain of diamonds and ipearlB.

Shall I lell yo'it-ot the dignity oi human nature? shall t tell you of the wondefs that our race has accomplished? T'Oh, no;" you say, "tell me the.message that came from" QOd." I '-will. It there fs any handwriting dn the walls it is this lesson: ."Repent! Accept of Christ and be saved!'' I might talk of a great many other things; but that is the j message, and so I declare it. Jesus never flattered thbse to whom he preached. He said to those who did wrong, and who were offensive in his sight, "Yfe generation of vipers! ye whited sepulchres! how can ye escape the damnation of hell?" Paul the apostle preached before a man who was not ready to hear him preach. What subject did he take? Did he say, "Oh! you are a good' man, a very fine man, a very noble man"? No; he preached of righteousness to a man who was unrighteous; of temperance to a man Who was a victim of bad appetites; of the judgment to come to a man who was unfit for It. So we must always declare the message that happens to come to us. Daniel must read it as it is./' A minister preached before Jame's I. of England, who was James ;Vt. 'of- Scotland. What subject did he take? The king was noted all over the world for being unsettled and wavering in his ideas. What did the minister preach about to this man who was James I. of England and James VI. of Scotland? He took for his text James first and sixth; "He that wav- ereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed." Hugh Latimer offended the king by a sermon he preached; and the king said, "Hugh Latimer, come and apologize.", "t will," said Hugh Latimer. So the day was appointed; and the king's chapel was full of lords, and dukes, and the mighty men and women of the country, for Hugh Latimer was to apologize. He began his sermon by saying, "Hugh Latimer, bethink thee! Thou art in the presence of thine earthly king, who can destroy thy body. But bethink thee, Hugh Latimer, that thou art in the presence of the King of heaven and earth, who can destroy both body and soul in hell fire." Then he preached with appalling directness at the king's crimes. Another lesson that comes to us tonight: there is a great difference between the opening of the banquet of death - softtetimes . fe'eaft^ fa upatl a dbwti to i empires. Idols of wonderful work ^/'.standing on pedestals of precious ^'stones. r Embroideries stooping about the ^.windows and wrapping pillars of cedar, /?#»# drifting on floor inlaid with ivory 4C ; iand' agate,' Music, mingling the thrum '* ' harps, and the clash of cymbals, and ^.. -ate blast of trumpets in one wave of |f%jtransport that went rippling along the '"*" " " breathing amopg the gariands, down the corridors, and the souls of a- thousand ban, The signal is given, and the ,3 ladies, the mighty men and ;pf-tb'e land, come around the pour out the wine, Let foam ^iss .the. rijnj Hojst every awTdrlnk to the sentiment: forever!"

"Oh! the grandeur of Belshazzar's feast!" you, would have said; but you look in at the close of 'the banquet, and your blood curdles with horror. The King of Terrors has there a ghastlier. banquet, and human blood is the wine, and dying groans are the music. Sin has made itself a king in the earth. It has crowned itself. It has spread a banquet. It Invites all the world to come to it. It has hung in its banqueting hall the spoils of all kingdoms, and the banners of all nations. It has gathered from all music. It has strewn, from its wealth, the tables, and floors, and arches. And yet how often is that banquet broken up; and how horrible is its end! Ever and anon there is a handwriting on the wall, A king falls. A great culprit is arrested. The knees of wickedness knock together. God's judgment, like an armed host, breaks in upon the banquet; and that night is Belshazzav, the king of the Chaldeans, slain. Here is » young man who says, "I Why, it me feel cannot see why they make such a fuss about the intoxicating cup. is exhilarating! It makes well, I can talk better, think better, feel better. I cannot seo why people have such a prejudice against it," A few years- pass on, and he wakes up and finds himself in the clutches of an evil Jiabit which he tries to bvealt, but cannot, and he cries out: "Oh, Lord God! help me!" It seems as though God would rioi hear his prayer, and in an agony of body and soul he cries «ut; "It biteth like a serpent and it stingetb like an adder.'' How bright It was at start! How black it was at last! Here is a m&n who Begins to read loose novels, ",They are so charming," he says; "I w}}i go out a»d see for njyself whether all these things are ' .....

'dll^'.t'ho "" "haye^welcrtmed fl<*ath, ' blit he to 'the" ftatoe"; and- just at the time when the mirth is dashing to the tiiJtop pitchi Death breaks .in at the banquet. We have ofien "' "seen' the same thing illiistrated. Here is a young man juat cdine from cdllege. He is kind. He Is loving. He Is enthusiastic, tie is. eloquent. By one spring he may bound to heights toward Which many men -have been struggling foi 1 years. > A profession opens before him. He Is established in the law, -His friends cheer him. -After awhile you may see him standing In the American fiehate, or, tnovihg a popular assemblage by his eloquence, as trees are moved in a whirlwind. Some night he retires early. A fever is on him. Delirium, like a reckless charioteer, seizes the reins of his intellect. Father and mother stand by and see the tides of his life going out to the great ocean. The banquet Is coming to an end. The lights of thought, and mirth, and eloquence are being extinguished, The garlands are snatched from tho brow. The vision Is gone. Death at the banquet! I have also to learn from the subject that the destruction of the Vicious and of those who dfesplse God, will be very sudden. The wave of mirth had dashed to the highest point when the invading army broke through. It was unexpected. Suddenly, almost always, comes the doom of those who despise God.and defy the laws of men. How was it at the deluge? Do you suppose it caino through a long northeast storm, so that people for days before were sure it was coming? No; I suppose the morning was bright; that calmness brooded on the waters; that beauty sat enthroned on the hills; when suddenly the-heavens burst, and. the mountains sank like anchors into the sea that dashed clear over the Andes and the Himalayas, v The Red sea was divided. The Egyptians tried to cross it. There could be no danger. The Israelites had just gone through; where they had gone, why not the Egyptians? Oh, it waa such a beautiful walking place! A pavement of. tinged shells and pearls, and on: either Side two great walls'of water—solid. There can. .be no danger. Forward, great host of the Egyptians! Clap the cymbals and blow the, trumpets of victory! After them! We will catch theni yet, and they shall be destroyed. But the walls -begin to tremble. They rock! They fall! The rushing waters! The shriek of drowning men! The swimming of the war horses In vain for the shore! The strewing of the great host on the bottom of the sea, or pitched by the angry wave on tho beach—a battered, bruised, and loathsome Wreck! Suddenly destruction came. One half hour before they could not have believed it. Destroyed, and without remedy. I am just setting forth a fact, which •you have noticed as well as I." Annanias comes .to the apostle. The apostle says: "Did you sell the land for so much?" He says, "Yes." It was a lie. Dead! as quick as that. Sapphira, his wife, comes 'in. "Did you sell the land for so much?" "Yes." It was a lie, and quick as that she was dead. God's judgments are upon those who despise Him and defy Him. They come suddenly. The destroying angel went through Egypt. Do you suppose that any of the people knew that he was coming? Did they hear the flap of his great wing? No, no! Suddenly, unexpectedly, he came. Skilled sportsmen do not like to shoot a bird standing on a sprig near by. If they are skilled, they pride themselves on taking it on the wing; and they wait till it starts. Death is an old sportsman; and he loves to take men flying under the very sun, He love^ to take them on the wing. Oh, flee to' God this night! If there be one in this presence who has wandered far away from Christ, though he may not have heard the call of the Gospel for many a year, I invite him now to come and be saved. Flee from thy siu! Flee to the stronghold of the Gospel! Now is the accepted time; now is the day of salvation. Good night, my young friends! may you have rosy sleep, guarded by Him who never slumbers! May you a.wake' in the morning strong and well,' But oh! art tbou a despiser of God? Is this thy last night on earth? sboul^st thou be awakened in the- night by some* .thipg, thou knowest not ,what, 'and there be shadows floating in the room, an4 a handwriting o$ the wall, and you feel that -yew last hour i* some, an4 there be a fainting at the, b-eart, ^n,a a' trejnor, in the limb, §fl4 a ca^ebjng fi f the breat^"-then, thy,^9o m ' WQuJ4 ,po put'an eqh» of the'wQi-dg of the te^ts f'ln that ntgW w,as Belshaiaar, ft the " 'QJ! t L^rjJ JejiuB,<w,Qu!d, njjw ' * MISTAKE ffdni '.fdie^e and domplet§d a'course of legal 'Study, haS' 5 .

As he sat alone Ih his office one August afternoon, pondering over an important ease which he had in hand, a gentleman of about his own age (28) entered his presence, dropped into a chair, wiped the perspiration from his brow and remarked! "It is a deuced hot day, Tom." No other person in the city would thus familiarly have addressed him, but the caller---Frank. Ashton by name, a physician by profession—had been his chum and bosom friend in college. "I have been very comfortable," was the reply. "You know a lawyer must keep cool under all circumstances," he added, with a smile. "As one can who has your 'frigid temperament,' to quote what I heard a lady say of you the other evening." "So she placed a 'frigid .temperament' to my credit," and again he smiled. "Why don't you get married?" "What do I want to burden myself with a wife for?" "A wife is not a burden, bnt a blessing, if wisely chosen." "There 1$ just where the 'rub' comes In—in making .a wice choice. Most women are Influenced to .marry by selfish motives, and many of them prove unfaithful." "Ever since I formed your acquaintance you have manifested an aversion for ladies and—" "Aversion," the lawyer Interrupted, COMPLETELY BROKEN DOWN, "is not the term to us"e. I have;let them alone, that is all." ; : "I cannot, never could—comprehend why, in this respect, you are so different from other men—insensible to feminine charms. But I have no time now for discussing the subject, as I have several patients to visit this afternoon. Good day." "Good afternoon," the lawyer responded, and was again alone. When by himself an expression which it would be difficult to describe stole over his countenance as he muttered; "Of a 'frigid temperament' and 'insensible to feminine charms,' am I? Having my reason therefor, other men would be go." As the words fell from his lips his head dropped, the muscles of his face twitched convulsively, his hands clutched the arms of the chair in which he sat. Then, rising and pacing to and fro, he exclaimed In a sad tone: •'I am not to blame!" * * * * * * On a bed in a handsomely furnished apartment lay a man, apparently not far from 50 years of age, whose stay upon earth would be brief, at whose side sat Dr. Ashton. "I am afraid that he will not get here in season," the Invalid said, in a scarcely audible tone, 1 "Yes, he will," rejoined the doctor, epeoura,gingly. "I am expecting him every moment." Almost simultaneously with the ut- , terance of t& ese words Lawyer Seward was conducted into the room. "Here he is," observed tjie physician, and then, turning to the lawyer, he con-, ti»uedi "My patient, M*. Walter Burns, wished me to genfl for S9PW one 'to draw up bis will, an4 I summoned you here," Beating, himself pear the bed, Mr- gewarfl quietly remarked; ' ' "i am, at yqur disposal, Mri lurns." - "In the }fIt*ji»n4 copjjer o| that writ- leg (Jested fee tnvaJia ,b§sa$.' pQinting 'to tto a'rtlPlg, "m WJU fl»M-9fB8« to*' ,wiU ajMB.ven.tQFy Visit, nfef faa^ftattii *nort sh6 was t6 lil did afft fefte*, tlmt sue had Whd iiad been a fia!.

I lo»g ago reimbursed those who had siiftered ffom my embezzlement, attd Wish my entire property to be conveyed to this son. 1 aldo desire you, on the recommendation of Dr. Ashton to act as my execu* tor." Ho stopped as ho had many timeu while stating the above, and Mr. Seward inquired: "What if Thomas Darling is dead or connot be found?" "Dispose of my property for the benefit of the poor," the dying man replied. The will was drawn up and properly signed and witnessed without delay. Then, having placed it and the' "inventory" In his pocket, the lawyer took the testator's hand in his own, bade him "Good by," started to go from the room, whispering as he did so in the physician's ear: "Be sure to come to my oSlce at 7 this evening." Dr. Ashton promised to do so and the lawyer took his departure, In his office we again look upon Lawyer Seward, not calmly seated, as when we first saw him there, but nervously pacing to and fro, as he was left there. His reverie, evidently of a somber character, was broken by the advent of Dr. Ashton, to whom he said: "I have something to state to you which will surprise you, I think." "Ah!" was the monosyllabic reply. "Please seat yourself," Mr. Seward observed. Both sat down and the lawyer. asked: "Do you recall the name of the beneficiary of Mr. Stanleyls will?" "Thomas — Thomas Darling, was it not?" '.••,...' "He and I are identical." "What?" almost screamed the doctor. "Read that," and, drawing a .timeworn paper from his pocket, Mr. Seward passed it to the doctor, who unfolded It and read: ,'•' ' ' "B— — , June 12, 18— .—My Dear Kate: If you love me as you have in the past, come here without delay, to tho - house. Lovingly yours, ."JAMBS." When the doctor raised his eyes from the paper Mr. Seward began: "Two days ; after mother's singular departure from her home, father accidentally ran across this note, which she had left, unintentionally, it is possible." "Having for some time suspected a man of the name of James Newton as trying to alienate her affections from himself, and as this man had disappeared from the place a few days DP- fore, father, naturally ipclined to be jealous, imagined him the writer of the note. He had never known, as Mr. Stanley said, that his wife had a half- brother. "Unable to endure the disgrace that would be his when her infidelity was made ; known to the world, he at once moved to a far-away place, where he assumed the name of Seward. He never looked at a paper from fear of seeing her name In it, lived in misery for six years, died and was buried. "Naturally the supposed conduct of my mother influenced me to regard all women as fickle, and father did all in his power to incite me to shun girls, Hence was developed what you, the other day denominated my 'insensibility to feminine charms,' "Poor mother! how you were wronged!" and tears filled his eyes, as they did those of his friend, who said: "I do: not wonder at it;" Of the thousands of dollars bequeathed him by Mr. Stanley the lawyer accepted one-half and placed tho other half so as to benefit the poor, His mother's remains were removed from their resting place and interred beside his father's, He did not resume tho name of Darling; he did change his attitude toward the gentler sex. Indeed, a year had not elapsed after he had learned the truth relative to his mother before he became the' husband of a nipst estim^- ble lady, whom he admits to his friend.
