An Incident nf tloldlni Court In tlin Um
A Chicago lawyer, formerly a Judgo In

Tho llttlo fellow was vory much astonished
and protested his Ignoranco of tho existence
of tho "six shooter" law, but as that is not n
legal oxcuso I assessed him $2.1 and declared
his pistols confiscated. Ho seemed nlmost
heartbroken, and after searching his pockets

BnooKLYN, Feb. 10. At tho TaWwtcIo
this morning tho Rov. T, Do Witt Tulmitgo,
1), I)., announced that ho would very soon
liegln a serlc of sermons on his Journey "To
and Through tho Holy IaihI," Tho mbject
of his discourse this morning was "Tim Glo
rious Christ." His text wo! "Ho thnt coin
nth from nbovo Is iiIhivo all." -John III, 111,
lho groat preacher said:
Tho most conspicuous character of history
ttcs out tix)ii the platform, Tho linger
which, diamonded with light, Minted down
to him from tho Bethlehem sky, was only a
ratification of tho linger of prophecy, tho
finger of genealogy, tho linger of chronology,
tho linger of events all llvo lingers pointing
in ono direction. Christ Is tho overtopping
figure of all tlmo. Ho Is tho vox huuinuii In
nil music, thu grncefulent lino in nil sculpture,
thu most exquisite mingling of lights nnd
shades In nil nintlug, tho nemo of nil ell
muxes, tho dome of all cathedralod grandeur,
and tho crornt!on of nil splendid language,
Tho Greek alphabet is mado up of twenty
four letters, anil when Christ couiareil hint
wit to tho first letter and tho last letter, tho
alpha and tho omega, ho appropriated to
himself all tho splendors that you can sjiell
out either with thoso two letters aud all tho
letters liotwccit them. "I am tho Alpha and
tho Omega, tho beginning aud thu end, tho
first and tho last." Or, It you prefor tho
words of tho text, "uIkivo all."
What does It mean! It means, after you
have piled tqi all Alplno and Himalayan alti
tudes, tho glory of Christ would have to
spread Its wiuga and diwcond n thousand
leaguus to touch those summits. Pullon, a
high mountain of Tin wily ; Oma, a high moun
tain, and Olympus, a high mountain; but
mythology Ulls us when tho giants warred
ngaiust tho gods they piled up these three
mountains, and from thotopot them proponed
to scalo thu heavens; but tho height was not
great enough, and there was a complete fail
ure. And after all tho giants Isaiah aud
Paul, prophotio and apostolic giants; Raphael
and Michael Angolo, artistic glnute; cherubim
and seraphim and archangel, celestial giants
have failed to climb to tho top of Christ's
glory, they might all well unite In tho words
of the text and sny: "Ho that cotneth from
nbovo is above all."
C1IIU8T ADOVIC AIX KLHK.
First, Christ must Ixi above all else in our
preaching. Thero nro so many books ou
homllctlcs scattered through tho couutry that
all laymen, as well as all clergymen, have
mado up their minds what sermons ought to
1)0. Thnt sermon Is most effectual which
most jxjlntodly puU forth Christ as tho iir
don of all sin and tho correction of all ovll,
Individual, social, political, national. There
Is no reason why wo should ring tho endless
changes on a few phrases. Thero aro thoso
who think that If an exhortation or a dis
courwi havo frequontmentionof Justification,
snnctificatlou, covenant of works and cove
nant of graco, that thereforo it must bo pro
foundly ovangollcal, whllo thoy aro suspicious
of u dlscourso which present tho samo truth,
but tinder illfTeront phraseology. Now, I nay
thoro is nothing in all tho opulent realm of
Anglo-Saxoiilsm, of all tho word treasures
that wo inherited from tho Latin utid tho
Greek and tho Indo-European, but wo have a
right to marshal It In religious discussion.
Christ Hots tho example. Ills illustrations
wero from tho grass, tho flowers, tho splttlo,
tho salvo, thu barnyard fowl, the crystals of
salt, as woll as from tho seas and the stars;
ana wo no not proposo in our Sunday school
teaching nnd in our pulpit address to lo put
ou tho limits.
I know thnt thoro Is n great deal said In
our day ugulust words, as though thoy woro
nothing. They may lo misused, but thoy
have;an imperial power. Thoy aro tho brldgo
between soul uiul soul, between Almighty God
and tho human race. What did God write
ujion tho tables of stones) Wonls. What did
Christ litter ou Mount Olivet? Wonls. Out
of what did Christ strike tho spark for tho
Illumination of tho universe! Out of words.
"Let thero bo light," and light was. Of
course, thought is tho cargo nnd words nro
only the ship; but how fust would your enrgo
got on without tho ship? What you need, my
friends, in nil your work, in your Sabbath
school class, lu your reformatory Institutions,
nud w hat wo nil neod is to enlarge our vocab
ulary, when wo como to touk about God and
Christ and heaven. Wo rldo a few old words
to death when there is such illimitable re
source. Shakesiienro employed fifteen thou
sand duTcront words for dramatic purposes;
Milton employed eight thousand different
words for jioctia purjsisos; Ilufus Choatu em
ployed over eloven thousand different words
for legal puriioses; but the most of us have
less than a thousand words that we can man
age, less than five hundred, and that makes
us so stupid.
When wo como to sot forth tho lovoof
Christ wo aro going to tnko temlerest phrase
ology wherever wo find It, and if It has never
been used in that direction leforo, all thu
moro shall wo uso It. When wo como to
speak of tho glory of Christ, the Conqueror,
wo aro going to draw our himilm from trl
timplml arch and oratorio and everything
gruud and stuteudous. Thu French navy
havu eighteen Hugs by which thoy givo sig
nal, hut thoso eighteen flags thoy can put into
slxty-slx thousand different combinations,
and I havo to tell you that thoso standards of
tho cross may lo lifted into combinations In
finite nnd varieties everlasting, And let mo
say to tilts young mon who come from tho
theological seminaries into our services every
Sabbath, and nro utter a whllo going to
preach Jesus Christ, you will havo tho largest
liberty and unlimited resource. You only
have to presotit Christ in jour own way.
Jonathan Edwards preached Christ in tho
severest argument over penned, and John
Bunyan preached Christ in tho sublimest al
legory ever comjiostsl. Edward Pnysoii, sick
and exhausted, loaned up ngaiust tlio sldo of

Georgo Whltefield, with tlio manner nud tlio

"Oil, my sins, my sins," said Martin Luther
to Hintipltf., "my sins, my slnsl" The fact is
thnt the brawny German student lind found
a lOtln lllble that made him qunke, mid
nothing else ever did mako him qunke, Inn I
whnii he found how, through Christ, he was
(Mirdoned and saved, ho wrote to a friend,

calamity, all the pools of worldly enjoyment
havu Uhmi trampled Into deep mire, at the
foot of tho eternal rock tho Christian, from
cups of granite lily rimmed aud vino covered,
puts out tho thirst of his soul.
Again, 1 remark, that Christ Is above all
in dying alleviations.
1 have not any syinimthy with tho morbid
ity abroad ulsiut our demlsu. Thu ouqicror
of Constantinople arrnugod that ou tlio day
of his coronation thu stono mason should
como and consult him uUmt tho tomb
stone thnt after a while he would need. And
there are men who ore monomaiiiacal ou thu
subject of di'iMirturu from this llfo by death,
and thu more they think of it tho loss they
aro prewired to go. This is an umnaulliitwi
not worthy of you, not worthy of mo.
Saladln, tlio greatest conqueror of his day,
whllo dying, ordered that thu tunlo ho had on
him bo carried after his death ou his iqtoal' at
thu head of his army, and that then tho sol
dier uvcr and anon should stop and say, "Be
hold, all that is left of Saladln, thu ouiMror
und conqueror! Of all thu status hu con
quered, of all the wealth ho accumulated,
nothing did hu retain but this shroud," I
havo no sympathy with such bo.iuwor, in
such absurd demonstration, or with much
that wo hear uttered hi regard to depa. turo
from this bfo to tho next. Thero IA a common-son-sleal
idea ou this subject that you ami I
need to consider that there aru only two
styles of dcKirlure.
A thousand feet underground, by light of
torch toiling lu a miner's shaft, a ledgu of
rock may full iim us, nnd wu may die a
miner's death, lar out nt sen, falling from
thu slipitery ratlines nnd broken on tho hal
yards, wo may dio a sailor's death. On mis
sion of mercy In hospital, amid broken bourn
and reeking leprosies und raging fovers, w
may diu a philanthropist's death. Ou tho
field of battle, serving God and our country,
slugs through tho heart, tho gun carrlago
may roll over us, and wo may dio a vitriol's
death. But, nfter all, thero uro only two
styles of departure tlio death of tho right
eous and the death of thu wicked und wo all
want to dio tho former.
God grant that when that hour comes you
may Im at homol You want thu hand of
your kindred in your hand. You want your
children to surround you. You want the
light on your pillow from eyes that havu
long reflected your lovo. You want the room
still. You do not waut any curious stran
gers standing around watching you. You
want your kindred from afar to hear your
last prayer. I think that Is thu wish of all
of us. Hut is that all) Can earthly friends
hold us up when tho billows of death come
up to tlio girdle? Can human volco charm
iijioii heaven's gate? Can human hand pilot
us through thu narrows of death Into
heaven's harbor? Can auy earthly friend
ship shield us from tho arrows of death aud
in tho hour when Satan shall pructico iikii
us his Infernal archery? No, no, no, nol
Alasl Poor soul If tliatlsull. Bettor dio lu
tho wildoritoss, fur from troo shadow and
from fountain, alone, vultures circling
through tho air waiting for our liody, un
known to men, and to havo no burial, If only
Christ could say through tho solitudes, "i
will never leave theo, I will never forsake
thee." From that pillow of stone a ladder
would soar heavenward, angels coming and
going; and across tho solitude and thu bur
reiiiiuss would como the sweet notes of heav
"to ao TO ClInlBT."
Gordon Hall, far from homo, dying lu the
door of u heathen temple, said: "Glory to
theo, O God!" What did dying Wilberforco
say to his wife) "Como and sltbosldu mo, and
let us talk of heaven. 1 never knew what
happiness was until I found Christ." What
did dying Hannah Moro say? "To go to
heaven, think what that is! To go to Christ,
who diod that I might livo. Oh, glorious

Oh, tho lovo of Christ, thu lovo of Christ!"
What did Mr. Toplady, tho great hymn
