Brooklyn, Au. 19. Tho Rev. Dr. T.
Witt .Xalmripe's subject today was
f-oublo oa Both Sides," and his text
iiero was n sharp rock on tho ono bide,
rl a sharp rock on tho other tide,"
i am., xiv, 4.
i.'he cruel army of tho Philistines must
S taken and scattered. Thero a just
i ) man, accompanied by his bodyguard,
;tlo that thing. Jonathan is tho hero
tho tscene. I know that David
icked tho fckull of tho Riant with a
' v pebbles well slung, and that COO
jf.lconites scattered 10,000 Amalekites
j tho crash of broken crockery;
t hero is a moro wonderful con
l it. Yonder aro tho l'liilistines on the
.cks. Hero is Jonathan with his body
iard in tho valley. On tho one
le is a rock called Bozez; on the other
le is a rock called Seneh. These two
ere as famous in olden times as in
' odern times are Plymouth Rock and
abraltar. They were precipitous, un
salable and sharp. Between these two
)ck3 Jonathan must make his ascent.
ho day comes for tho scaling of tho
i eight. Jonathan, on his hands and feet,
tcgLns the ascent. With strain, and
up, and bruise, I suppose, but Btill on
nd up, first goes Jonathan, and then
.oes his bodyguard. Bozez on one
ide, Seneh on tho other. After
. sharp tug, and push, and cling
ng, I eee tho head of Jonathan
'.bovo tho hole, in tho mountain; and
. here is a challenge, and a fight, and a
Supernatural consternation. These two
;iien, Jonathan and his bodyguard, drive
('jack and drive down the Philistines over
:,he rocks, and open a campaign which
lemolishes the enemiss of Israel. I sup
'pose that tho overhanging and over
shadowing rocks on either side did not
balk or dishearten Jonathan or his body
guard, but only roused and filled them
with Bthusiasm as they went up.
"Tliere was a sharp rock on tho ono side,
and a sharp roelf on the other side."
Jly friends, you hava been, or are now,
Eomt" of you, in tliis crisis of tho text.
If a maii meets one trouble, ha cu go
through wlt.Ii it. Ho 'gathers all his en
ergies, concentrates them upon ono point,
,and in the strength of God, or by his own
natural determination, goes through it.
i But tho man who has trouble to tho right
"of him and trouble to the left of him is
; to be. pitied. Did either trouble come
'alone, he might endure it, but two
I troubles, two disasters, two overshadow
!dng misfortunes, are Bozcz and Seneh.
God pity him! "There is a sharp rock
on tho ono side, and a sharp rock on tho
other side."
In this crisis of the text is that mail
whose fortune and health fail him at the
same time. Nine-tenths of all our mer
chants capsize in business before they
come to forty-five years of age. There
is Borne collision In commercial circles,
and they stop payment. It seems as if
every man must put his name on the
back of a note before he learns what a
fool a man is who risks all his own prop
erty on the prospect tliat some man will
tell tho truth. It seems as if a man must
have a large amount of unsalable goodo
on his own shelf before ho leams how
much easier it is to buy than to sell. It
seems as if every man must be completely
burned out before lie learns the import
ance of alwaj3 keeping fully insured.
It seems as if every man must be wrecked
in a financial tempest before he
learns to keep things snug in case of a
sudden euroclydon. When tho calamity
does come, it is awful. The man goes
home in despair, and he tells liis family:
"We'll have to go to the poorhouse."
He takes a dolorous view of everything.
It seems as if he never could rise. But
a littlo time passes, and he says: "Why,
I am not so badly off after all; I have
my family left."
Before the Lord turned Adam out of
Paradise he gave him Eve, so that when
he lost Paradise he could stand it. Per
mit ono who has never read but a few
novels in all liis life, and who has not a
great deal of romance in hi3 composition,
to say, that if, when a man's fortunes
fail, he has a good wife a good Chris
tian jvif e--he ought not to be despondent.
"Oh," you say, "that only increases the
embarrassment, sinco you have her also
to take care of." You aro an ingrate,
for the woman as often supports the man
as the man supports tho woman. The
man may bring all the uollai's, but the
woman generally brings the courage and
the faith in God.
Well, this man of whom I am speak
ing looks around, and he finds his family
is left, and he rallies, and the light comes
to his eyes, and the 6mile to his face," and
the courage to his heart. In two years
he is quite over it. He makes his finan
cial calamity the first chapter in a new
era of prosperity. He met that one
trouble conquered it. He sat down for
a little while under the grim shadow of
the rock Bozez, yet he soon rose, and be
gan, like Jonathan, to climb. But how
often it is that physical ailment comes
with financial embarrassment. When
the fortune failed it broke tho man's
spirit. His nerves -were shattered. His
brain was stunned. I can show you
hundreds of men in New York whose
fortune and health failed at the same
time. They came prematurely to the
staff. Their hand trembled with
incipient paralysis. They never eaw
a well day since the hour when
they called their creditors to
gether for a compromise. If such men
aro impatient, and peculiar, and irrita
ble, excuse them. They had two troubles,
either one of which they could have met
successfully. If, when tho health went,
the fortune had been retained, it would
not have been so bad. The man could
have bought the very best medical advice
and he could have had the very best at
tendance, and long lines of carriages
WOuld have stopped at the front door to
inquire as to hid -welfare. Bat poverty
on the one side and sickness on the other
are Bozez and Seneh, and they interlock
their shadows and drop them y.voathe
poor man's way. God help him "There
is a sharp rock oa the one side, and a
sharp rock on the other side. ,
. Now, what is euch a man to do? " !
tho name of Almighty' Cod,' I will tell
him what to do. Do ns Jonathan did
rlimb; climb up ipto the sunlight of
(iod'a favor and consolation. I can go
through the churches and hhow you men
who lobt fortune and health at tho same
time, and j-et who nng all day and
dream of heaven all night. If you havo
any idea that sound digestion, and steady
nerves, and clear eyesight, and good
hearing, and plenty of friends aro neces
sary to make a man happy, you have
miscalculated. I kuoho that theso over
hanging rocks only made Jonathan
scramble tho harder and tho faster to p;et
up and out into the sunlight; and t'nia
combined shadow of invalidism and
linancial embarrassment has often sent a
man up the quicker into the sunlight of
God's favor and the noonday of his
glorious promises. It is a dilficult
thing for a man to fef-1 his dependence
upon God when ho has $10,000 in the
bank, and $."0,000 in government securi
ties, and a block of stores and three
ships. "Well," the man says to him
self, "it is silly for mo to pray, 'Give mo
this day my daily bread,' when my pan
try is full, and tho canals from the west
are crowded with breadstuff destined
for my storehouses." Oh, my friends, if
tho combined misfortunes and disasters
of lifo havo made you climb up into the
arms of a sympathetic and compassionate
God, through all eternity you will bless
him that in this world "there was a
sharp rock on tho ono side, and a sharp
rock on the other side."
Again, that man is in tho crisis of the
text who has homo troubles and outside
persecution at tho same time. Tho world
treats a man well just a3 long as it pays
best to treat him well. As long as it can
manufacture success out of his bone, and
brain, and muscle, it favors him. The
world fattens the horse it wants to drive
But let a man sec it his duty to cross the
track of the world, then every bush is
full of horns and tusks thrust at lum.
They will belittle him. They will cari
cature him. They will call his generos
ity self aggrandizement, and his piety
sanctimoniousness, 'f he very worst per
secution will some time come upon him
from thoso who profess to be Chnsti&nj.
John Milton great and good John
Milton so forgot himself as to pray, in
so many words, that his enemies might
oo eternally thrown down into tuo uarK
est and deepest gulf of hell, and bo the
undermost and most dejected and th
lowest down vassals of perdition! And
Martin Luther so far forgot himself as to
say, in regard to his theological oppon
ents: "Put them in whatever sauce you
please, -,vWted. or fried, or baked, or
stewed, oe boiled, .or hashed, they are
nothing" but neses!" Aj, uy friends, if
John Milton or Martin Luther coUi
como down to such scurrility, what
may you not expect from less
elevated opponents? Now, tho world
sometimes takes after them; the
newspapers tako aflr f hem; public
opinion takes after them; and the unfor
tunate man is bed about until all the
dictionary of Billingsgate is exhausted
on him. You often see a man whom
you know to bo good, and pure, and
honest, set upon by tho world, and
mauled by whole communities, while
vicious men take on a supercilious air in
condemnation of him; as though Lord
Jeffreys bhciifd write an essay on gentle
ness, or Henry VIII tolk about purity,
or Herod take to blessing httlo .L;Jdren.
Now, a certain amount of persecution
rouse3 a man's defiance, stirs his blood
for magnificeufc battle, and makes him
fifty times more a man ihan he would
have been without the persecution, go
it was with the great reformer when he
said: "I will not be put down; I will be
heard." And so it was with Millard,
tho preacher, in the timo of Louis XI.
When Louis XI sent word to him that
unless he stopped preaching in that style
he would throw him into the river, he
replied: "Tell the king that I will reach
heaven sooner by water than he will
reach it by fast horses," A certain
amount of persecution is a tonic and in
spiration, but too much of it, and too
long continued, becomes tho rock
Bozez, throwing a dark shadow over
a man's life. What is he to do
then? Go home, you say. Good advice,
that. That is just the place for a man to
go when thtf world abuses him. Go
home. Blessed be God for pur quiet and
sympathetic homes. But there is many
a man who lias the reputation of having
a homo when he has none. Through un
thinkingness or precipitation there are
many matches made ihat ought never to
have been made. An officiating priest
cannot alono unite a couple. The Lord
Almighty must proclaim banns. There
is many a home in which thero is no
sympathy and no happiness and no good
cheer. The clamor of the battle may not
have been heard outside, but God knows,
notwithstanding all the playing of the
"Wedding " March" and all the odor of
the orange blossoms and the benediction
of the officiating pastor, there has been
no marriage.
Sometimes men have awakened to find
on one side of them the rock of persecu
tion, and on the other side the rock of
domestic infelicity. What shall such an
one do? Do as Jonathan did climb.
Get up the heights of God's consolation,
from which we may look down in tri
umph upon outside persecution and home
trouble. While good and great John
Wesley was being silenced by the magis
trates, and having his name written on
the board fences of London in doggerel,
at that very time his wife was making
him as miserable as she could acting as
though she were possessed of the
devil, as I suppose she was; . never
doing him a kindness until the
day she ran away, so that he wrote
in his diary these words: "I did not for
sako her; I have not dismissed her; I
will not recall her." Planting one foot,
John Wesley did, upon outside persecu
tion, and the other foot on home trouble,
he climbed up into the heights of
Christian joy, and after preaching forty
thousand sermons, and traveling two
hundred and seventy thousand miles,
reached the heights of lieaven, though in
this world he had it hard enough "a
sharp rock on tho one side, and a sharp
rock on tho other. "
Again, that woman stands in the crisis
of the text who ha3 bereavement and a
struggle for a livelihood at the same time.
Without mentioning names, I speak from
observation. Ah, it is a hard thing for a
woman to make an honest living, even
when her heart is not troubled, and Bhe
has a fair cheek and the magnetism of
an exquisite presence. But now the hus
band, or the father, Is dead- The ex
penses of the obsequies have absorbed all
hat was left in tho eavipgs bans; ana
. 1 . 1
wan ana wasted wun weeping uni
watching, 6he goes forth a grave, a
hearse, a coffin, behind her to
contend for her existence and
the existence of her children. When
I see such a battle as that open I shut my
ryes at tho ghastliness of the spectacle.
Men sit with embroidered slippers ana
write heartless essays about women's
wages; but that question is made up of
tears and blood, and thero is more blood
than tears. Oh, give women free access
to all the realms where she can get a live
lihood, from the telegraph office to the
pulpit. Let men's wages bo cut down
I fore hers aro cut down. Men have
iron in their souls and can stand it.
Make the way freo to her of the broken
heart. May God put into my hand tho
cold, bitter cup of privation, and give me
nothing but a windowless hut for shelter
for many years, rather than that after
I am dead there should go out from my
homo into the pitiless world a woman's
arm to Oght the Gettysburg, the Auster
litz, the Waterloo of life, for bread.
And yet how many women there are
seated between the rock of bereavement
on the ono side, and the rock of destitu
tion on tho other, Bozez and Seneh in
terlocking their shadow and dropping
them upon her miserable way. "There
is a sharp rock on the one side, and a
bharp rock on the other side." What
aro sucli to do? Somehow, let them
climb up into the heights of the glorious
promiso : "Leave thy fatherless children ;
I will preserve them alive, and let thy
"widows trust in me. " Or get up into the
heights of that other glorious promise:
"Tho Lord preserveth the stranger and
relieveth the widow and the fatherles3.''
O! ye sewing woman on starving wages.
O! ye widows turned out from the
once beautiful home. O! ye female
teachers, kept on niggardly stipend. O!
ye despairing woman, seeking in vain for
work, wandering along the docks, and
thinking to throw yourself into the river
last night. O! ye women of weak nerves
and aching sides, and short breath and
broken heart, you need something more
than human sympathy; you need the
sympathy of God. Climb up into his
arms. He knows it all, arid he loyca you
more than father, or mother,' 'or husband
ever could or ever did ; and instead of sit
ting down, wringing your hands in des
pair, you had Letter begin to climb.
Tl'ei'9 are heights o consolation fpr you,
though now tiioio 13 ft sharp rock on
the one side, and a sharp rock on tld
other side."
Again, that man is in the crisis of tho
text who has a wasted life on the one
sido 2nd an unillumined eternity on tho
Dthei:. Though man may all his life
have cultured deliberaUon'nd'snlj r:C.js.0
if he gets Into that position all his eif
possession is gone. There are all tho
wrong thoughts of his existence, all the
wrong deeds, all the wrong words

overshadowing. "That rock I call Bozez.
On the other side are all the retribuiiona
of tho future, tho thrones of' judgment,
the eternal ages, angry with his long de
Qance. That rock I call Sensh. Between
theso two rocks Lord Byron perished, and
Alcibiades perished, and Herod perished,
and ten thousand times ten thousand
iiave perished. O! man immortal, man
redeemed, man blood-bought, climb up
out of those shadows. Climb up by the
way of the cioss, Ppve your wasted
lifo forgiven; have yoit'r' eternai hiG in

to the past and see what it has been, 'and
take one Jock fo the future and see what
it tlireatens to be. You can afford o
lose your health, you' can afford to lose
your property, you can afford to lose
your reputation; LuJ; you cannot afford
to lose your soul. That i bright, gleam
ing, glorious, precious, eternal possession
you must carry aloft in the day when
the earth burns up and the heavens
You see from my subject that when a
man goes into the safety and peace of
the Gospel, lie does not .demean Vimse'l''
There is nothing in religion that leads
to meanness or uumanliness. The Gos
pel of Jesus Christ only asks you to
climb as Jonathan did climb toward
God, climb toward heaven, climb into
the sunshine of God's favor. To become
a Christian is not to go meanly down;
it is to com gioilpuily up up into the
communion of saints, up into' the peace
that passeth all understanding, up into
the companionship of angels. He lives
up; lie dies up.
O! then, accept the wholesale invita
tion which I make this morning to "all the
people. Come up from between your
invalidism and financial embarrassments.
Come up from between your bereave
ments and your destitution, pome up
from between a wasted life and an unil
lumined eternity. Like Jonathan, climb
with all your might, instead of sitting
down to wring your hands in the shadow
and in the darkness "a sharp rock on
the one side, and a sharp rock on the
other side."
The Mystery Vaa Solved,
Back in 1SS2 they had an epidemic of
typhoid at Auxerre. No one could tell
why. The disease appeared suddenly.
There was no evidence of contagion,
llow about the water? Formerly the in
habitants used river water from the
Yonne. But the town would modernize
itself. A new quarter was built, and all
the well to do folk combined to insure a
supply of "pure water" by the aqueduct
of Valand. The poorer people, as of old,
went to the river. Now, the typhoid at
tacked only those who drunk the "pure
water." Dr. de Carrieres, a specialist
and expert, was chosen to make a study
of the case, and, if possible, to determine
the cause of the epidemic.
The doctor proceeded to examine the
Yaland waters at its source. Arrived
there ho found a farm house close at
hand, and, of course, he found that neces
sary and more or less charming ornament
of a farmyard, a manure heap. Inquir
ing at the house he learned they had a
patient who had lately come from Paris
ill with typhoid. The plot thickens ! The
doctor suspected the big manure heap. '
He would try. So he took a quantity of
rosalinine, a powerful red coloring mat- !
ter, and distributed it freely over the j
mass. Next morning when the surviy-
ing "best people" of Auxerre turned on
the taps, what was their surprise to find
tho beautiful Yaland water as red as
blood! The mystery was solved. I

The fact that hundreds of foundlings aro
annually eared for at the expense of tho city
and by our numerous private charitable in
stitutions is very generally taken as at least
: u suggestion of tho prevalence of gross im
' morality in Xev York. IJecauso tho census
of tho ehilii asylums and nurseries is con
stantly increasing tho deduction is likewise
mac lu that the metropolitan morale is not of
so high a standard as in years past. How
much truth there may bo in tho latter as
gumptiou is a question that must Le deter
mined from other data. In short, tho gen
eral tielief that tho tiny wards that eyiry
! vear liecomo public charges are, a a rule,
the offspring or unfortunate or immoral
mothers is not correct On tho authority of
those whoso position gives them tho best
chance for investigation it i stated that a
very large proportion of tbo waifs picked up
on tho streets or discovered in put of the
way places are tho children of woraea who
abandon them solely for the purpose of mak
ing money by nurturing other ioople'3 ba
"There is no question but that women neg
lect their young babes for tho sake of the
wages they can earn in nursing the children
of others," said tho superintendent of the in
fants' asylum on Itandall's Island, where
over 1,000 foundlings aro cared for at the
city's expenso in the course of a year. "It
has been found by investigation that tho
majority of abandonments aro made
from sordid motives. Of course there are
cases where mothers are obliged to abandon
their babes through poverty or fear the
shame of their maternity should become
known. But a large proportion of the in
mates of the institution aro dependent on the
city's charity because pf their mother's greed
for money. At one time in the hospital's
history wet nurses were hired, but tho em
ployment agencies In the city, where the
number of maternities is so high per week,
gave the management much trouble by send
ing scouts here to tho island to entice them
away. We cannot afford to pay tho prices
private faniilies will e-ive,"
At the headquarters oi' tho department ot
charities and correction Jii Blake, who has
held tho position of superintendent of put
door poor, and is ono of the best posted men
in ho city on the subject paid;
h-iTon'jrpjF f hV chil Jren two. or. mora months
tld hava boon abandoned twice before they
aro brought here to be cared for by the city.
A woman with a child only a few days old
finds some one with whom she can board it.
Sometimes a month's board is paid in ad
vance, which insures good care for it But the
poor women who expect to add ?3 or (5 to
theft saeagvt ninthly income seldom see the
mother of the child aftop iho first month.
Finally, after waiting a while, tho nurses
abandon them."
Thero are certain institutions in New York
where a premium is practically put on this
heartless abandonment of babies by merce
nary mothers. Certain restrictions are im
posed as to the adfftiion oi patients in the
maternity wards, but there : are, notwith
standing this, loopholes by which such women
aro permitted a leavo their young to the
tepder mercies of these institutions. I'he, cus
tom, or practice, is winked at, because tho
city pays a bounty, as It were, for the in
fants thus adopted, for tho funds received
depend upon tho number of children cared
for. In some cases mothers are bound to as
sume ome slight responsibility or even tech
nical titlo to motherhood. But at least ono
institution not only grants but actually ex
acts a release of all claim to children of
which it assumes the care.
"I know froin personal experience and ob
servation thnt a very large proportion of the
wet nurses employed in New York have been
abls tQ Phtiq thss places solely through fha
abandonment of their own flesh and blood,"
was the statement made by a well known
physician of this city iu discussing the sub
ject "1 have been astounded and shocked
by the growing tendency on the part of
American women to leave tho care of their
Infants to others almost from the timo of
birth. You might regard it as a general rnl
among the wealthy classes, and especially so
in pases where mothers are what are termed
society Indies.' Jn tho United States th
most favored classes, so far as worldly poa
sessions are concerned, seem to regard it as a
disgrace to hava more than two children. It
is not many years ago that a how noted
illustrated paper made a tremendous hit
and first commenced to boom by e
timely cartoon apropos of tho suicide oJ
the notorious JIme. RestelL She wai
reputed to have had among her patients
in yer nefarious malpractice business, womeq
of the ffirst' families of New York, or what
Ward McAllister is pleased to term the select
400. This cartoon gavo a prophetic scene, as
it were, of what Fifth avenue would present
iu a year or 'two now that Mme. Restell's
services were no longer to be secured. It
was tho aptness of the illustration which
brought home to the publio a realization of
the enormity of what may bo termed a great
national sin that set everybody talking about
the paper that had exhibited the courage to
preach so powerful a sermon. Thero may
be other Restells here today, but hardly less
a crime than is practiced by them is the
fotal abandonment of babies or tho shirking
of the responsibilities of motherhood by
theso wet nurses.
"Tho temptations to shiftless and mercen
ary females duo to the system are very great
and few can resist them. Wet nurses are
usually engaged by the year, and their wages
range from $20 or $25 a month to f 40 or f 30
and even higher in soma instances. A
woman gets a good home, all her ex
penses are paid, and is fed on the best of
everything. Practically it is a life of ease
and perhaps luxury for the term of their en
gagement Their deserted children can be
put out to board for $10 or $13 a month, and
a great majority of them are either adopted
or become public charges. If the parents of
babies realized the risks they run in taking
this cla-ss of women to nurse their little ones
there might be less of this sort of thing dona
There is great danger of chronic diseases and
various complaints being contracted by the
babies. The private nurseries in which the
children of wet nurses are cared for are not
what they ought to bo by any means. In the
first place, the babie3 of necessity are bottle
fed and are more or less neglected. They are
puny ""and weak, and if they are nursed
through the various infantile complaints are,
for many reasons, unlikely to become useful
or desirable members of society." New York
