DANIEL AND DARIUS.
OR. TALMAQE'S PRACTICAL DIS
COURSE TO YOUNG MEN.
Latum! to lln Drnwn rrom tho Conduct
of Mutt Who Dnrril DImiIik n King.
The Vntu of Clinrnctnr nnl Morilliit-mi.
Hhooklyn, May 8. Dr. Tnlmngo took
for hlssuhject today tho clinrnctcr of Dan
iel mid drew from it lessons of sound priw
tlcal vnluo for tlic young men, of whom no
large ft number are nlwnys to bo seen
among tho most eager and attentlvo listen
era In tho Tnbernnclo congregations. Ills
text was Daniel vl, S, "Daniel was first."
Where In romance can you find anything
equal to what Daniel was in reality? A
young man, far away from home, intro
duced Into the most magnificent and most
dissolute palace of all the earth. The king,
wishing to make this young man a prod
igy in personal nppearance, orders his at
tendant to see that he has plenty of meat
and wine, and Daniel refuses these delica
cies and Insists on a vegetable diet, refus
ing everything but pulse and water, wav
ing back all the rich viands with a deter
mined "Mo; I thank you." Ho surpasses
til tho princes in brilliancy. As this sun
rises higher and higher In the firmament,
It puts out all the stars, and if there la
Anything the stars hate It Is tho sun.
Daniel becomes so much of a favorite
with King Darius that our young hero is
promoted to Im prime minister or secretary
f state the Krellughuyscn or tho Ills
marck of the ancients. Dut no man ever
attained such high position without excit
ing the envy of others. Tho meanest and
wrath lent passion of tho soul is jealousy.
You seo It among all professions and occu
pations. I am sorry to say you sco it as
tnucb among clergymen as among other
classes of men. It is a passion bitter as
hell and It is Immediately recognized, and
yet, though it blackens tho man who in
dulges in it, men will kindle this Are
which consumes only themselves.
There wcro demagogues in Habylon, who,
highly appreciative of their own capacity,
doubted the policy of elevating such a
young man as Daniel. Theysirtd: "Why,
we know more than ho docs. Wo could
manage tho public affairs bettor than he
can manage them. Tho idea of putting
Dan in such a place as that." Old Haby
lon was afraid of young Babylon. They
begau to plot his ruin. Ho was an illustri
ous target. The taller tho cedar tho more
apt to bo struck with tho lightning.
These demagogues asked Darius to
make an unalterable decree that any man
who within thirty days shall ask a peti
tion of any one except tho king, shall'be
put to death. Darius, not mistrusting any
foul play, makes such a decree. Tho dem
agogues have accomplished their purpose,
for they knew that Daniel would not stop
ending up petitions to his God, and Dan
iel, Instead of being affrighted by tho de
cree, went three times a day to his house
top for prayer. Ho Is caught in tho act.
Ho is condemned to bo devoured by tho
lions. Such u healthy young man will be
for tho leonine mouarchs tho best banquet
they ever had. By the rough execution
ers of the law ho is hurried away toward
IN TIIK LIONS' HEN.
1 hear tho growl of tho monsters, and
their pawing of the dust, and its their
mouth is placed to tho ground tho solid
eartli quakes with their bellow. Tho door
is removed and Daniel shoved into the den,
which was all ngleam with fiery eyeballs
that seem to roll and snap in tho caverns.
They approach the defenseless man. Their
sppetlto was sharp with hunger. One
Stroke of their paw, one crunch of their
teeth and ho would have been lifeless.
How strange a welcome Daniel receives
from tho monsters. They fawn idtout him.
They cover his feet with their long mane.
They aro struck with tho lockjaw. That
Dight Daniel's sleep is calm and uudis
turbed, witli his head pillowed on the
Warm neck of the tamed lions.
But King Darius was not so happy. Ho
loved Daniel and he hated the stratagem
by which his favorite had been condemned.
He paces his Door all night. Hu cannot
leep. At the leant sound ho starts and
his flesh creeps with horror. A bod con
science will make tho bravest man a cow
ard. Ho watches eagerly for the dawn,
which seems so long In tarrying. At the
first streak of light ho starts out to find
out tho fate of Daniel. Tho palnce gate
opens and jars heavily behind him while
yet the city is asleep. He comes to the
den. He looks through tho crevices but
ees nothing. Ho daro not speak. Expect
ing the worst, his heart stops.
Gathering strength, he puts his mouth
to the rifts in the rock and cries, "Oh,
Daniel, is thy God whom thou servest con
tinually able to deliver thee from the
llonsf" An answer comes rolling up out
of the darkness: "Oh, king, live forever.
My God hath sent his angel and hath shut
the lions' mouths, that they have not hurt
me." The young man is brought out and the
demagogues who made tho plot aro thrown
in. But they hardly struck tho bottom of
the den when their flesh is rent, and their
bones cracked, and their blood spurted
through the rifts, while the fierce mon
sters shook the rocks with their terrible
roar, announcing to all ages the truth that
While God defends his people, tho wuy of
the wicked shall perish.
TIIK OKPKN'SK OK SUCCESS.
Now, you see from this subject that in
the eyes of many the greatest offense you
can commit is success. Of what crime had
this youug man been guilty that he should
como under the bitter hatred of tho dema
gogues? Why, ho had got to be primo
minister of Babylon. That they could not
forgive. Behold in this sketch a touch of
human nature! As long ns poverty pinches
you, and you run the gantlet lietwceii
taxgathcrcr and landlord, and you have
hard work to educate your children, there
wlM bo multitudes to say: "Poor fellow!
He ought to succeed. How sorry I am for
(lilt after awhile you begin to emerge
from the darkness. That was a capital
investment. You purchased at just the
right ti'ne. Fortune became good natured
and smiled. You budded your own house.

Mono In you i new house was laid on their
heart. Your horses' hoofs went over their
nerves. Your carriage tire cut their neek.
What have you done, outrageous culprit?
You ought to be east to the lions. You
have dared to achieve success. Depend
upon il that if in any one respect you ri
far alove your fellows If you are more
truthful, more wUe, more eloquent, more

puns. Jealousy says, "Stay down or I will
knock you down." In midair nsnowlbikt
said to a snowbird, "I don't like you."
"Why don't you like me?" said thn snow
bird. "Because," replied tho snowllnkc-,
"you are going upand I am coming down."
Success is often a synonym for scorn.
The tlrst thing a man wants Is religion.
Tho second Is grit. If you do not want to
face wild beast you must never get to be
prime minister. If you aro now, as n
young man, rising in any ono respect, I
llless God for your advancement, but I
wish to say before I quit this thought, look
out for tho lions. Young merchants, young
lawyers, young physicians, young minis
ters havo much sympathy, and kind ad
vice is given them nt first, but ns you be
come your own masters and Is-gln to suc
ceed In your different occupations and
professions, how Is It then, youug mer
chants, young lawyers, young physicians,
young ministers? How Is It then?
TIIK BI'IHIT OK 1NHKCISI0N.
Again Whold In our subject an exhibi
tion of true decision of character. Before
Daniel were condemnation and death, If he
continued faithful to his religion. Yet,
just ns before, three times a day ho prayed
with his face toward Jerusalem. Thero is
nothing more fatal for tho religious or
worldly advancement than n spirit of in
decision. How often youth Is almost gone
lcforo tho Individual has determined UHn
Thero nro those who for thirty or forty
years have accomplished nothing any
wliero because they havo not felt them
selves settled. They have thought of tho
law, of medicine, of merchandise, of mech
anism. They have somo Idea of going
west. Perhaps they will go east. Perhaps
they won't. They mny go north or south.
Perhaps they will Invest their money In
railroads or In teal estate. Perhaps they
won't. They are like a vessel starting
from New York lmrlmr, which should ono
day decide on going to Liverpool, and the
next on New Orleans, and tho next on Mar
seilles. How many men havo for n long
while been out on the great sen of life and
they do not know to what port they are
destined? It is an everlasting tacking of
ship, but no headway.
Tho man who Is-gins to build a house in
tho Corinthian stylo and when half way up
concludes to make it Doric, and then com
pletes It In Ionic, will hnve.aii unseemly
pile and bo cursed of every school of archi
tecture. These men that try everything
get to bo nothing. God wrote in your brain
and engraved on your bones what you
ought to be. Then Ihj that, nothing more
or nothing less. In that direction is your
success. Every other road is ruin. Hav
ing adjusted your compass, go ahead. Set
your teeth together. Small difficulties do
not notice. Gieat difficulties, by God'6
grnco strike them down. Onward I It
, Act you like hoiis of God. If you want
to sail to tho laud of gold you must double
tho Cape. To usefulness and strong char
acter thero is no overland route. Over the
great deeps you must fly. Most of the
way It Is either bend wind or tempest.
Character, like tho goldfinch of Tonquln,
Is magnificent when standing firm, but
loses all Its splendor in flight. Thero Is no
such tiling as failure to those who trust in
God. Paul got to bo an npostlo by falling
off his horse. Stephen was stoued into
When a young mnn resolves on n re
ligious life, ho does not always find it
smooth sailing. Old companions laugh
and say with sarcastic tone, "Ho has got
to lie pious." They go on excursions, out
donotnsk him. They prophesy that his
religion will not hold out. They call him
"long faced." They wonder If ho Is not
getting wings. They say sharp things
about him for themselves to laugh nt.
When ho passes they grimace and wink
and chuckle, and say loud enough to be
heard, "Thero goes a saint." If you have
never seen life as it is, you know not what
Btrength of resolution it often requires for
a youug man to Ihi a Christian.

Again, let this story of Daniel teach us
that the way to future success is through
present self denial. Not only did Daniel
show his willingness for self restraint by
refusing tho luxuries of tho king's table,
but must have denied himself much social
enjoyment and sightseeing in order to have
attained most wonderful proficiency in
study. Tho rush of the chariots under Ills
window and the sound of mirth that rang
out on tho ulr of Babylon would have at
tracted most young men into the streets
and to expensive places of amusement.
But Daniel knew that it was only through
severity of application ho could attain the
honorable position for which ho was in
tended. Indeed, you may carry this truth
into universal application.
The most of those who have succeeded
in any profession or occupation have como
up from the very bottom of the ladder.
The brightest day began with the twilight.
Tho admirals who commanded the navies
of the world started as cabin boys. The
merchant princes, whose messengers nre
ships and whoso servants the nation's cus
tom houses, once swept tho store and kin
dled the fires. Tho orator who lifts up the
gate of tho soul, us Samson carried off the
gates of Gaza, once stammered and
blushed on tho stage of u country school
house. The youug painter, under whose
pencil skies blossom and waters gleam, un
tlerstnnds his subject so well because he
lias hut little to shelter him from the ono
and is obliged to find ills only beverage. In
Out of tho dark, deep mines of want and
Buffering has lieendugtho marble for the
world's greatest temples of wisdom and
palaces of power. Vnnderlyn, the artist,
must first content himself with a charcoal
fcketch. Franklin, before becoming the
renowned philosopher, must be a Journey
man printer. Columbus must weave car
pets before he can weave hemispheres,
David must take care of ills father's sheep
before he rules Israel. Amos must bun
herdsman before he becomes a prophet.
Daniel must lc the humble student Ixiforu
iio rises to lie the prime minister of Bnby
If a young man starts In life with large
notions of what he must immediately have,
willing to consider no economy, but ex
pecting witli a small ship to unfurl as
much sail as an ocean frigate, he will llud
himself capsized by the first northeaster.
It Is the small sprig that you can carry In
one hand which will thrive best when
limited. But if, by levers and huge linn
Mir wagons, you bring down from the
mountain n century oak, though you may
plant it, you cannot make it live. So he
who begins life on such it grand scale and
with such exorbitant notions, will never
succeed, while some youug mail who went
to town without means, but having a right
spirit, through his self denial, planted a
tree which has reached above Wall stieet
and flung Its shadow In one direction over
the granite palaces on the avenues and in
the other far out over merchant vessels an
chored In the bay.
Men say success In life is all a matter m'
good luck, but industry and economy and
( self denial put together always make good
luck. There are young taeaj who failed
twlco and aro Retting notes shared the
third time before they are as old ns their
father when he first began business for
himself. They started with the Idea that
their wit would do as well as capital. For
awhile It did, but when creditors sent their
duns and banks their protests they found
that mere shrewdness wns greatly lielow
par. You cannot cross tho ocean In a yawl.
MUST IIRAIt TDK C110S8.
A young eaglet, far up In tho mountain
eyrie, says to Its winged mother, "I will
fly no longer from tree to tree as you tell
me, but like you, mother, I will swing
from this Chlnilsirazo peak to yonder
Chlmboruxn peak." I, Ike an arrow It
shot into tho heavens, but when over the
awful chasm Its head wns dizzy mid it
wing weak, and it began to whirl down
want and with wild scream until it struck
on the rocks. A traveler passing through
tho gorge saw tho mangled remains of the
eaglet. "Howcnmo you to havo this fall?"
said the traveler. "Ah, me," said the
eaglet, "It was licrnuso I would not fly from
tree to tree until I wns old enough, but
headstrong I started from Chlmbornxo
peak toward ChlmlioraV.o cak."
If youug men would seize the advan
tages of Intelligence, it will lie by great
economy of time mid tho refusing of many
forms of gratification. Show me a man
who, refusing many of the frivolities of
gossiping youths, can see more to attract
his attention in the pages of a treatise or n
history than In the flash of bright eyes,
or tho niry step of those who find more
skill In their heels than their heads, and I
will show you a man who will yet master
languages and sway a very scepter over
his fellows. Many an education which Is
now considered complete Is made up of n
smattering of newspapers and tho last
page of a fashion magazine.
Tho parlor and the drawing room cannot
educate us. They may give us outward
adornments of manner, but getting valu
able knowledge Is like sweltering nt a
forgo, bellows in one hand and hammer In
tho other like digging In mines, with
crowbars, prying under the ledge and the
constant bang of blasted rocks. Hsihi
dally is it true that no growth in grace Is
passible unless, like Daniel, wo nro willing
to take up tho cross, however heavy it may
be and rough with nails. Moses chose af
fliction with the people of God rather than
the pleasures of sin, mid If wo would be
anything like him wo must bo willing
sometimes to choose tho hard bread of self
denial rather than tho Imperial clusters
from royal vineyards.
To get strength and depth enough in
rivers for turning mill wheels and manu
factories, dams nre built across them, and
then through the mill race the quick floods
leap on the water wheel to turn it With
tremendous power. So natures that would
otherwise have been powerless ami Insuffi
cient by self restraint have been dammed
back and deepened, until with consecrated
power they rush into the world, turning Its
ponderous machinery of important Inter
ests. Unrestrained men may havo much
good In them, but it Is so scattered that
you see no positive elTects. Electricity in
the air does not strike, but gathered In the
cloud with Its bare red arm it cleaves the
Passions harnessed and yoked make ex
cellent beasts of burden. However at
tractive may bo the sinful offers of the
world, though rich and luxurious ns tho
provision of the king's tabic, we must be
willing to refuse them If nothing be left us
but plain pulse. Oh, how we want the
faith and courage of n Daniel and a Paul,
but how wo dread the hot atmosphere of
trial, iu which their graces ripened. The
richest fruits of religion grow in the sultry
tropics of trial. If you want pearls, you
must dive for them. If you want gold,
you must dig for it. The richest parts of
California and Australia are under ground.
Depend upon it, if no pruning, no fruit; no
climbing, no elevation; no battle, no vic
tory; no cross, no crown. Had thero la-en
no Nebuchadnezzar, there would have
been uo Daniel. Even so it has been Iu all
ages. The flames that have (lashed up
from the stake have been so many illumina
tions of Christian triumph.
When God would make a great light of
truth and holiness in the world, ho often
takes great persecutions and with them
strikes fire. The devil's hate is God's
glory. Had It not been for the (ersecu
tlonsof Emperor Valerian, the world would
not have known of the courage of it Cy
prian, and if the tyranny of Diocletian had
never been known, the triumphant grace
would not have been seen which made
Maximilian, when sentenced to death, ex
claim, "God be praised I" Had not the
bandits of Piedmont pursued the Wal
denses through the valley of the Alps, and
the Infuriate decree put to massacre the
Alhlgenscs of France, the world would
have had fewer Illustrations of Christian
heroism. Be Joseph before Pharaoh, lie
Paul before Felix. Be Daniel before
UK PUI1K ALWAYS.
Again let the story of Daniel teach ns
the beauty of that youthful character
which remains umhlenilshed and upright
when away from home. Had Daniel, on
arriving In Babylon, plunged Into every
excess, his friends In Jerusalem woitld
never havo heard of it. His dissipation
and renunciation of religion would not
havo cast one sorrow on the family hearth
where he had lived or tho old family Bible
which ho used to read. But, though far
away from home, he knew that God's eye
watched hlm and that was enough. It is
not every young man who maintains the
sumo character when absent that was
maintained at home.
Frederick watching his father's sheep
among the hills or thrashing ryo In the
barn is far different from Frederick on the
Stock exchange. How often does tho kind,
retiring spirit become bold effrontery, ami
the accommodating, self sacrificing dis
position once exhibited among brothers
mid sisters becomes a cold and unrespon
sive selfishness, and economy, wasteful
ness and open handed charity, tight fisted
stinginess, and the keeping of good hours
is changed to midnight revelry.
I I probably address young men now, dis
tant from their father's house, and others
who, still under tho parental roof, look
forward to a time when they will depart
alone to conflict with the world and among
strangers lie called to build up characters
for themselves. Happy for you, oh, young
man, if you shall, like Joseph, be the same
when living with wicked Pharaoh as with
pious Jacob, or Daniel as pure iu Babylon
as in Jerusalem. There Is no passage In a
man's life of more thrilling interest than
I the day In which he leaves home and goes
oil to se-eK Ills ortuue. The novelty and
romance connected with the departure
may keep the youug man from any twig
nant sorrow, but parents, who have seen
the destruction among strangers of those
who were considered promising youths,
cannot help feeling that this step is full of
momentous Importance. Before the youth
left home all his conduct was under af
Outbursts of folly, carelessness and im
propriety of manneraiid looseness of speech
were kindly reproved, and although the
restraint seemed sometimes too severe, yet
hours of sober reflection have cony I need
hlm that It was salutary and righteous.
But behold how tho scene changes. The

among companions not overscrupulous u.
to their words or deeds, temptations troop
nround tho stranger. Tho morning comes,
but no family altar, and the Sabbath, but
no real quiet, mid perhaps attliosanctuarj
tho faces are all strange and no one enief

and how shall the)' be spent? On his wit)

If only lie can see something that will iimkt

TIIK DANIK1.H IN IIAItVI.ON.
Ill many a country churchyard Is now
tho grave of some youthful spirit that
went away lithe mid Ismndlnu, but came
home diseased and crushed and blasted to
disgrace the sepulcher of his fathers. Yet
this exodus must be made. Ah from fai
distant hills rivers find their way through
tunnels to great cities, so from far distant
points of the country It Is necessary that a
stream of uncorrupted population shall
pour Into our great thoroughfares to keep
them pure and manage the traffic of the
world. Multitudes of such aro constantly
making their departure from home.
Tomorrow morning all of the thorough
fares leading toward tho great cities of our
land, on steamboat and rail car, there will
be young adventurers for the first speed
ing nwny from their homes in order to try
their fortune lu town. The Lord stretch
forth his arm for the deliverance of these
Daniels away down in Babylon. Wher
ever your lot may bo cast, lu far Inland
town or lu some great seaport, maintain lu
your absenio the same principles of morals
and religion which may havo been instilled
by parental solicitude.
And while you may feel In your heart
and life the advantages of early religious
culture, forget not those to whom you are
chiefly Indebted, and pray that as age
comes upon them and tho night of deatli
begins to fall on their pathway, tho hope
of heaven may beam through tho darkness,
lustrous and steady as tho evening star.
The Lord forbid that by our conduct wo
should ever bring disgrace on a father's
name or prove recreant to the love of a
mother. The poet did not exaggerate
when he exclaimed:
How Hlinrper than a serpent's tooth, It Is,
To havun thankless child.

Goisl will counts for very little by Itself
in a sickroom. Of all persons lu the woild
a nurse must know how to go ahead and
do what needs to m done without ques
tions and without fuss. Mrs. Swlsshelm
had a new appreciation of this truth when
she came to need a nurse for herself after
wearing herself out In nursing wounded
soldiers. She says:
When I lay ill a friend told me of uu ex
cellent woman who had como from afar
and tendered her services to the govern
ment. Shu had exerted much influence nud
spent much elTort to get into a hospital as
nurse, but had failed.
Hearing of my illness her desiro to be
useful led her ko tender her services. Her
generous olTer was accepted, and I was left
for an nfternon iu her care.
I wanted a cup of ten. She went to tht
kitchen to make It, and one hour after
came up with a cup of tea, only this and
nothing more, save a saucer. To tnste
the tea 1 must have a spoon, nud to get
ono sho must go nlong n hall, down a long
flight of stairs, through another hall and
tho kitchen, to the pantry.
When she had mado the trip the ten was
so much too strong that a spoonful would
have made a cup. She went down again
for hot water, and after she had gone to
the kitchen remembered that she had
thrown the water away, thinking it would
not bo wanted I
The fire had gone out, and the woman
came up to Inquire If she should make a
new one, and if so, where she should find
She had spent almost two hours In run

and a fluster, had done mo a great deal of
harm and no one any good, had wasted all
the kindlings for the evening fire, hod used
tea enough to serve a large family for a
meal and had fairly illustrated a large part
of the hospital service rendered by women

The Cowboy of Toilitjr.
The first cowlsiys I ever saw greatly dis

leather breeches and n buckskin coat, a

and none but the best Cheyenne saddle
should he sit on for of such is tho cow
bow of tho flash literature which has tin-
mortall.ed him; and if the true cowboy
I does not know enough to live up to his
own china I would ignore the fact. And
yet these first cowlwys I saw iu Montana
were a very ordinary looking lot of youug
depot loungers, peculiar only because they
wore big flat brimmed hats and because
they had a long lino of bronchos fettered to
