Brooklyn, Juno 10. At tho Talx-r-nacle
thi:s morning, after cxjiounding
Homo passages of Scripture in regard to
tho diet of Daniel and hi abstemious
habits, the Uev. T. Do Witt Talmage, D.
P., gave out tlx? liynin beginning:

sermon: "Does Religion Prolong Life?"
and preached from the text found in Ph.

Through tho mistakes of its friend-; re
ligion ha loeii chiefly associated with
hick boils and graveyards. The wholo
Kuhject to many people is odorous with
chl orino and carbolic ucid. There are
people who cannot ironounce tho word
religion without hearing in it the clipping
chi.sel of the toinltone cutter. It is high
time that this thing were changed and
that religion, instead of being represented
as a to carry out tho dead, should
bo represented as a chariot in which the
living are to triumph.
Religion, bo far from subtracting from
one's vitality, is a glorious addition. It
is sanative, curative, hygienic. It is
good for the eyes, good for tho ears, good
lor the spleen, good for the digestion,
good for the nerves, good for tho muscle.
When David, iri another part of tho
Psalms, prays that religion may be dom
inant he does not, speak of it as a mild
sickness, or an emaciation, or an attack
of moral and spiritual cramp; bespeaks
of it as "the saving health of all na
tions;' while Cod, in tho text, promises
longevity to the pious, saying: "Willi
long life will I satisfy him."
The fact is that men and women die
too soon. It is high time that religion
joined the hand of medical science in
attempting to improve human longevity.
Adam lived nine hundred and thirty
years. "Methuselah lived nine hundred
and sixty nine jears. As late in the his
tory of tho world as Vespasian, there
were at one time in his empire forty-five
people ono hundred and thirty-five years
old. So far down as the Sixteenth cen
tury, Peter Zartan died at one hundred
and eighty-five years of age. I do not
say that religion will ever take tho race
back to antediluvian longevity, but I do
say the length of Iranian life will be
greatly improved.
It is said in Isaiah: "Tho child shall
die a hundred years old." Now, if ac
cording to Scripture tho child is to be a
hundred years old, may not the men and
women reach to three hundred and four
1undred and live hundred? The fact is
that we are mere dwarfs and skeletons
compared with some of the generations
that are to come. Take tho African race.
They have been under bondage for cen
turies. Give them a chance and they de
velop a Frederick Douglass or aToussaint
U"Ouverture. And if the white race shall
be brought from under the serfdom of
sin, what shall be the Ixxly? what shall
Jxj the soul? Religion has only just
tcHuvlied our world. Give it full power
for a few centuries and who can tell
what will le the strength of man and
tho beauty of woman, and the longevity
.of all?
jSJv design is to show that practical re
ligion ;s the friend of long life, I prove
it, first, from the fact that it makes tho
care of our health a positive Christian
duty. Whether we shall keep early or
le.fe hours, whether wo shall take food
digestible or indigestible, whether there
hhall be thorough or incomplete mastica
tion, are questions very often deferred
to the realm of whimsicality; but the
Christian man lifts this whole problem of
jjcalth into the accountable and the di-?-itu?.
He says: "God has given me
this body, and lie has called it the temple
of the Holy Ghost, and to deface its
altars or mar its walls or crumble its pil
lars is a God defying sacrilege."
.He sees God's caligraphy jn every page
anatomical and physiological. He
eavs: c?od has given me a wonderful
body for nobis purposes."
That arm with thirty-two curious bones
wielded by forty -six curious muscles, and
all under the "brain's telegraphy; CIO
pounds of blood rushing through the
heart every hour, the heart in twi&ftty-
Htrychnincd, walking with thin shoes to
inako your feet look delicate, pinched at
the waist until you are nigh cut in two,
ami neither part worth anything, groan
ing about sfck headache and palpitation of
tho heart, which you think came from
your own folly.
WJiat right has any man or woman to
deface the temple of the Holy Ghost?
What is tho ear? Why, it is the whisp
ering gallery of tho human soul. What
is the eye? It is the observatory God
constructed, its telescope sweeping the
lu avens. What is the hand? An instru
ment so wonderful that when the Earl of
P.ridgcwatcr bequeathed in his will $10.
000 for treatises to lx- written on tho wis
dom, powes and goodness of God, Sir
Charles 15(11, tlie great English anatomist
ami surgeon, found his greatest illustration
in tlx' construction of the human hand,
devoting his whole nxk to that subject.
So wonderful are these Wiles that God
names his own attributes after different
parts of them. His omniscience it is-
God s eye. His omnipresence it is God's
ear. His omnipotence it is God's arm.
Tl io upholstery of tho midnight heavens
it is the work of God's fingers. His
life giving power it is the breath of the
Almighty. His dominion "the govern
ment shall be upon his shoulder. " A
lody so divinely honored and so divinely
constructed, let us be careful not to
abuse it.
When it ljecome3 a Christian duty to
take care of our health, is not tho whole
tendency toward longevity? If I toss my
watch about recklessly and drop it on the
pavement, anil wind it up anv time of
day or night I happen to think of it, and
often let it rundown, while, you are care
ful with jour watch and never abuse it.
and wind it up just at tho same hour
every night and put it in a place where
it will not suffer from tho violent changes
of atmosphere, which watch will last the
longer? Common sense answers. Now
the human body is God's watch You
see the hands of tho watch, you seo the
face of tho watch; but the beating of the
heart is the ticking of the watch. Oh,
he careful and do not let it run down!
Again, I remark that practical religion
is a friend of longevity, in the fact that
it is a protest against dissipations which
injure and destroy the health. Bad men

sins kill them. I know hundreds of good
old men, but I do not know half a dozen
bad old men. Why? They do not get
old. .Lord lyron died at Jussolonghi at
thirty-six years of age, himself his own
Mazeppa, his unbridled passions the
horse that dashed with him into the
desert. Edgar A. Poe died at Baltimore
at thirty-eight years of age. The black
raven that alighted on the bust above his
chamber door was delirium tremens
Only this and nothing more.
Napoleon Bonaparte lived only just be
yond mid life, then died at St. Helena,
and one of his doctors said that his dis
ease was induced by excessive snuffing.
The hero of Austerlitz, the man who by
one step of his foot in the center of Eu
ropo shook tho earth, killed by a snuti-
uox: uii, now many peonie we nave
known who have not lived out half their
days because of their dissipations and in
dulgences! Now practical religion is a
protest against all dissipation of any kind.
"But," you say, "professors of religion
have fallen, professors of religion have
trot drunk, professors of religion have
misappropriated trust funds, professors
of religion have absconded." Yes, but
they threw away their religion before
they did their morality. If. a man on a
White Star line steamer bound for Liver
pool in mid-Atlantic jumps overboard
and is drowned, is tliflt anything against
the White Star line's capacity to take the
man across the ocean? And if a man
jumps over tho gunwale of his religion
and goes down never to rise, is that any
reason for jour believing that religion
has no capacity tc take the man through?
In the one case it fie haf kept to tlie
steamer his body would have been saved;
in the other case if ho had kept to his re
ligion his morals would have been saved.
Tiiere are aged people who would hav:
!een dead twenty-five years ago but for
the defenses and the equipoise of religion.
You have no more natural resistance than
hundreds of people who lie in the ceme
teries today, slain by their own vices.
The doctors made their case as kind and
pleasant as they could, and it was called
congestion of the brain, or something
else, but the snakes and the blue flies that
seemed to crawl over the pillow in the
sight of the delirious patient showed what
was the matter witlf him. Yon, the
aged Christian man, walkert along by

"Well," he says, "I made them to
go in opposite directions on pui jo.-e, and
they produce the right result. You go
down stairs and examine the carpets wo
are turning out in this establishment and
you will seo." I go down on tlie other floor
and I see the carjuts, and I am obliged
to confess that though the wheels in that
factory go in opposite directions, they
turnout a beautiful result; and while I
am standing there hxiking at the exquis
ite fabric an old Scripture passage comes
into my mind: "All things work to
gether for good to them who love God."
Is there not rest in that? Is there not

Supiose a man is all the time worried
aljout his reputation? One man says lie
lies, another savs he is stupid, another
says he is dishonest and half a dozen
printing establishments attack him, and
ho is in a great state of excitement and
worry and fume, and cannot sleep; but re

longevity in the fact that it removes all
corroding care about a future existence

Why did God tell the Leviiea pot to oiler

through irregular or gluttonous eating,
ruins hia health, is not olTering to Go4
such a sacrifice. Why did Paul write for

back of Jerusalem ouo day, fne skies
filled with forked lightnings and the
earth filled with volcanic disturb:uices,
turned his pale and agonized face toward
the heavens and said: "I take the sins
and sorrows of the ages into my own
heart. I am 1113 expiation. Witness
earth and heaven and hell, I am the ex
piation." And the hammer struck him,
and the spears punctured him, and
heaven thundered: "The wages of sin
is death!" "The soul that eiimetb, it
d;all die!" "I will by i:o means clear
the guilty!" Then there was silence
for half an hour, and the lightnings were
drawn back into the seaboard of the sky,
and the earth seemed to quiver, and till
the colors of the sky began to shift them
selves into a rainbow woven out of the
falling tears of Jesus, and tiiere was red
as of the biGodsh.-dding, and there was
blue as of the bruising, and there was
green as of the heavenly foliage, and
there was orange as of the daj- dawn.
And along the line of the blue I saw the
words: "I was bruised for their iniqui
ties." And along the lino of ths red J
saw the words: "The blood of Jesus
Christ clcanseth from all sin." And
along the line of tho green I saw the
words: "Tlie leaves of the tree of life
for the healing of the nations." And
along the line of tlu orange I saw the
words: "Tlie day spring from on high
hath visited us.'
.And then I saw the storm was over
and the rainbow rose higher and higher,
until it 'fceemed retreating to another
heaven, and planting one column pf jts
colors on one side tho eternal Hill and
planting the other column of its colors on
the other side tho eternal hill, it ipse up
ward and upward, "and behold there was
a rainbow about the throne."
Accept that sacrifice and quit worry
ing. Take tho tonic, tho inspiration, the
longofify of this truth. Religion is sun
shine, that is health. Religion is fresh
air and pure water, they are healthy.

The Ladies' Protection and Relief so
ciety has jut issued its report for 1887.
Tho lady president was seen the other
da-, and said that at present there are
200 toys and girls in the institution,
while 3G2 children have been cared for
during the past year. Considerable diffi
culty has been experienced of late with
the young boys who play truant from the
institution, climbing fences and going
bathing at North Beach, or running
around the neighborhood. Various
remedies have been tried, among them
the dressing of the boys in girls' clothes,
but the latest device has proved effective.
Half a dozen youngsters played truant
not long ago, and on returning received a
warm welcome. Tlie matron quietly
ordered the bftys to take off their jackets,
and then the applied a mustard plaster to
each of the boys' backs, and now they
stop at home. San Francisco Chronicle.
