Of M Lady riddlaatrinaa
four little slaves my lady has,
All obedient to her will.
With a potent wand aha rules them.
To har highest bidding school rhemt
When she takes In hand ber bow,
Straight they sing loud or low;
Willing choristers, until s
She command! them to be atlll.
When my lady's heart beats happy
All her little slaves rejoice;
Ring they then with einltaHon,
Aa In joyful emulation
Of the lark that from on high
Fill the earth with melody,
'Twiit tliplr music and lark's votes
Ilard for mortals to make choice,
s. - .
When ahe sigh In nielnncholy,
I'lalntlve then and sad their strain)
Walling as for lost aalvation,
A for sins past expiation;
Moaning like some wounded thing,
Nobbing, sighing, whimpering,
Shrieking now in bitter pnln,
Sinking now to aoba again.
Thus their music changes ever
With the changing of her mood.
Now In minor chords of sadness,
Now in Joyoua paean of gladneaa.
Would ahe but, aa them, rule me,
CJrt my happiness would be,
Pally, hourly, renewed,
Bound In such sweet servitude.
New York Tribune.
Because I would,
I climlied the sunny slopes of maidenhood,
Youth's pathway was so fair, ao fresh, so
Bo far, so high, life's hilltops looked to me,
I thought hot of the future did not care
To think about It whether it were fair
Beyond the summit; every moment, glad
To keep the buds around me; for I had
No doubts, no fears, believed that Gad
was good,
Believed In heaven and Immortality,
Because I would.
Because I must,
I leaned to-day upon my staff of trust;
The hilltops are not far; I soon shall nee
The other side burst forth. It cannot be
That I have climbed ao far and all for
Oh, no! Some glorious glimpses I hare
And cannot help but take the down-
at retched hand;
And cling to It as tottering I atand.
Oh! tell me not that 1 am empty dust;
My spirit is Belief ! I hold to thee,
Because I must.

Are you dreaming sweetly; my little pet,
Of the daytime joys you cannot forget ?
Or do fairies lead you to scenes afar
Where the queen and her royal household
I am sure there is music as sweet and

As the merriest music a heart could play.
And (lie flowers in bloom In the fields out
I have ollen seen in a form more fair.
For the fairies selected with taste all i
The colors you wear in your cheek and
And the s-iti is shining as softly them
As the gold agje.-un in your token hair.

And tin- fairies have gathered tin ir J'.vs

When you wander out In the fields t
Oh! little one, sleep, when the nights are

Hla Opinion of "the Unpardonable
Blo"-fiot Poaalblc To-day to Commit
It Some Irrevocable Mlatakee Una-saerated-Bla-nal
Gun of the Ooapel.
Too Late to Recall.
In his sermon for last Sunday Rev. Dr.
Talmage, who la still in the West on hia
annual summer tour, chose a aubject
which has been a fruitful theme of the
ological disputation for centuries paat
via, "ine L npardonable Sin." The text
selected were: "All manner of sin and
blasphemy shall be forgiven unto men,
but the blasphemy against the Holy
Ghost shall not be forgiven nnto men.
And whosoever epeaketh a word against
toe ron of mnn, it shall be forgiven him.
but whosoever speaketb against the Holy
Ghost it shall not be forgiven him, ueither
in tbia world, neither In the world to
come." Matthew xii, 31, 32.
He found no place of repentance,
though he sought it carefully with tears."
Hebrews xii, 17.
Aa aometiines you gather the whole
family around the evening stand to hear
soma book read, so now we anther a
great Christian family groupto study
this text, and now may one and the same
lamp cast its glow on all the cin le!
The Unpardonable Pin.
Yon see from the first passage that I
read that there is a sin against the Holy
Ghost for which a man is never pardoned.
Onco having committed it, he is bound
hand and foot for the dungeons of de
spair. Sermons may be pre tried to him,
songs may be sung to him, prayers may
be offered in his behalf, but all to no pur
pose. He is a captive for 'his world ami
a captive for the world that is to come.
Do you suppose that there is any ene here
who has committed that sin? All sins
are against the Holy Ghost, but my text
speaks of one especially. It is very clear
to my own mind that the sin against the
Holy Ghost was the ascribing of the
works of the Spirit to the agency of the
devil in tha time of the apostls. Indeed
the Bible distinctly tells us that. In
other words, if a man had sight given to
him, or if another was raised from the
dead, and some one standing there should
suy: "This man got his siitht by satanie
power. The Holy Spirit did not do this.
Beelzebub accomplished it," or, "This
mnn raisisl from the dead was raised by
satanie influence," the man w ho said that
drop)cd under the curse of the text and
bad committed the fatal sin against the
Holy Ghost.
Now, I do not think it is possible in this
day to commit that sin. I think it was
Kjib!e only in apostolic limes. Hut It is
a very terrible thing ever to say tinytliing
against the Holy Ghost, and it is a marked
fact that our race has been mnrvelously
kept back from that profanity. Y'on hear
a man swear by the name of the ICternal
God and by the name of Jesus Christ, but
jou never heard a man swear by the
name of the Holy Ghost. There are those
here to-day who fear they are guilty of
the unpardonable sin. Have you such
anxiety? Then I have to tell you posi
tively that you have not committed that
ain, because the very anxiety la a result
of the movement of the gncions spirit,
and your anxiety is proof positive, an cer
tainly as anything that can be demon
strated in mathematics, that you have not
committed the sin that I have been speak
ing of. I can look off upon this audience
and feel that there is salvation for all. It
is not like when they put out with those
lifeboats from the Iieli Kni'ii for the Yille
du Havre. They knew there was not
room for all the passengers, but they were
going to do as well as they could. But
to-day we man the lifeboat of the gospel,
and we cry out over the sea. "Uoom for
ull!" Oh, that the Iord Christ
would, this hour, bring you all out of
the Hood of sin and plant you on the deck
of the old gospel craft!
Sins to Guard Auulnst.
Rut while I have saiil I do not think it
is possible for us to com.nit the purlieu-
lar sin spoken of in the first text, I have
i by reason of the Kecoml text to call Jour
; intention to the fnct that 'lo re aie s,ns
j which, thoiivh they may be piu'iLned, are
! in some respects irrevocable, and you can
i tiud no place for repentance, though yon
j seek it carefully with tears. Ksiu had a
j birthright given him. In olden times it
. meant not only temporal but -piritua!
1 blessing. One day Ks.iu took this birth-
right and trailed i! . ':;:
I eat. Oh, the folly! But let us not be too
j severe up-ill him, for some of iis have
jiouimittod the same folly. After he had
j nude the trade, he wanted to iiet it buck,
tjiiht ns though you to-morrow Morning
i should take all your notes nnd bonds and
government securities .not siiould into
a restaurant, npd in a lit of reckb-s.-m-ss
and hunger throw all those securities on
the counter and ask for a pinto if food,
making that ei lniiice. This was the one
J'.mii made. Hi- sold Ins birthright for a

A Misspent Youth.
Belonging to this class of irrevocable
mistakes la the (oily of a misspell you'll.
v e may look bark to our college days and
think how we neglected chemistry, or
gisdoge, or botany, or tnalliomatb's. AVc
may be sorry about it nil our days. Can
we ever get the discipline, or 'he advant'ige
(hat we would have hud had we atteuded
to those dutiea in early life? A roan
wakes up at years of age and finds that
bis youth ha been wasted, and he atrivea
to get back ilia early advantages. Doea
he get thera Wk the daya of boyhood,
the daya in ev-llege, the daya under hia
fathera roof? "Oh," he says, "if I could
only get those times back again, how I
would improve them!" My brother, you
will never get them back. They are gone,
gone. You may be very sorry r.bout it
and God may forgive, so that you may at
least reach heaven, but you will never get
over aome of the mishaps that bave come
to your soul as a result of your neglect of
early duty. You may try to undo it; you
cannot undo it. When you had a boy'a
arms and a boy'a eyes and a boy'a heart
you ought to have attended to those
things. A man saya, at 50 yeara of fge,
"I do wish I could get over these habits of
indolence." When did you aet them? At
20 or 25 years of age. You cannot shake
them off. They will hanK to you to the
very day of your death. If a young man
tnrougn a long course of evil conduct ud
dermines his physical health, and then
repents of it in after life, the Lord may
pardon him, but that doea not bring back
good physical condition. I said to a mln
istcr of the gospel, (,ne Snbbath, at the
close of the service, "Where are you
preaching now?" "Oh," he says, "I am
not preaching. I ani suffering from the
physical effects of early sin. I can't
preach now; I am sick." A consecrated
niuu he now Is, and he mourns bitterly
over earlv sins, but that does not arrest
their bodily effects.
The simple fact is, that men and women
often take twenty yeari of their life to
build up influences that require all the
rest of their life to break down. Talk
about a man beginning life when he is 21
years of age; talk about a woman begin
ning life when she is IS years of age!
Ah, no! In many respects that ia the
time they should close life. In nine cases
cut of ten all the questions of eternity
are decided before that. Talk about a
majority of men getting their fortunes be
tween 30 and 40 ! They get or lose for
tunes between 10 nnd 20. Wh ui you tell
me that a man is just beginning life, I
tell you he is just closing it. The next
fifty years will not be of as much im
lortance to him as the first twenty.
Parental Neglect.
Now, why do I say this? Is it for the
annoyance of those who have only a bale
ful retrospection? You know that is not
my way. I say it for the benefit of young
men and women. I want them to under
stand that eternity is wrapped up in this
hour; that the sins of youth we never get
over; that you are now fashioning the
mold in nh'ch your great future is to run;
that a minute, Instead of being 00 seconds
long, is piade up of everlasting ages. Y'on
see what dignity and iniMirtanco this
gives to the life of all young folks. Why,
in the light of this subject, life Is not
something to be frittered away, not some1
thing to be smirked about, not something
to be danced out, but something to be
weighed in the balances of eternity. Oh,
young man, the sin of yesterday, the ain
of to-morrow, will reach over 10,000 years
aye, over the great and unending etern
ity. Y'ou may, after awhile, say: "I am
cry sorry. Now I have got to be 30 or
10 years of age, and I do wish I had never
committed those sins." What does that
amount to? God may pardon you, but
undo those things you never will, you
never can.
In this same category of irrevocable
mistakes I put all parental neglect. We
begin the education of oiir children too
late. By the time they get to be 10 or 15
we wake up to our mistakes and try to
eradicate this bad habit and change that,
but It is too late. That parent who omits,
in the first ten years of the child's life,
to make an eternal impression for Christ,
never makes it. The child will probably
go on with all the disadvantages, which
might have been avoided by parental
faithfulness. Now yon see what ft mis-.
take that father or mother niak-s who
puts off to late life adherence to Christ.
Here is a man who nf 50 years of age
says to you, "I niust be n Christian, and
he yields his heart to God and sits in the
la"C of prayer to-day a Christ i-in. None
of lis con doubt it. lie goes home and he
says: "Here nt 50 years of age I have
given my heart to the Satior. Now I
must establish a family iltar." What?
Where are your children now? One in
sloti ; nnot lier in Ciueiuii.ui: another in
.New Orleans, anil yon, ny brother, at
your fiftieth year going to establish your
family altar'.' Very well; better late than
never, but: Bins. nln. tint yon did imt dr
It tweity-tive yrats ngo!
How many pnrents wake up in the bit
ter part of life to find oui the niMlai;.-!
The parent says, "i have been too b-m-
ni," or "1 lur.e been too severe m (in
discipline of my children. If I hud the
little ones iii'oiiinl me aga.n. leuv differ-
tit 1 would do! Yon will n r have
them around n'iiin. The voi-I. is don.-,
the bent to the character is uiven, the
eternity is decided. I my this to young
pari nts those who are lio or .'in or
,icors of age -have the fa'iiily niuu- io
i i(.-ht. Hon do yon suppose tint father
tell as he liainil over the conch of
dying child mid tlje expiring oii said to
him: "Father, you have been very uood
to me. Yo'l have given nie a In duct-
tiou, and you bine pla'-.'d u.o in a line
koeial position you bli ve ilolie c vcl y t long
for me in a worldly sense, bio. fniher,
you never told tne how to die. Now j mii
dying and 1 am n fraid."
t'arnnt lie Recalled.
In this category of irrevocable m'-ia'scs
I place, at co, the unkir. liess don-, the
c-'parted. U'licn I was a boy, my e-o'.he;'
used to -ay to !ae so'iietitnes, "J ic Win,
ion will be novry tor that n li-ii I - c,
l'oiic." A nl I remember juM Imw .,
looked, sitting tln-re, with cap and M;,!.cta
eles, and the old Itible iu l,,.r np. ,(
never saiil a truer thing than (hat. for i
have often been sorry since. While we
have our friends with us, ive s."y mi
guarded things Unit wound th feelings
of those to whom we ought to give noth
ing but UludiKi-s, IVrlisps the parent,
without iiii,iriiig into the .natter, boxes
the child's ears. '1 he little one, who has
fallen In the street, comes in "overe with
dust, and, as (hough the tirst disaster
were not enough, she whips It,
After awhile the child is taken, or the
parent Is taken, or the companion is taken,
and those who are left nay, "Oh, if w
eould ouly get back those unkind words,
those unkind deeds; if we could only re
call them!" But you cannot get them
back. You might bow down over the
(rave of that loved one and cry i nd cry
and cry the white lips would make ne
answer. The stars shall be plucked out
of their sockets, but these influences
shall not be torn away. The world thall
die, but there are some wrongs immortal.
The moral of which Is, take care of your
friends while you have them. Spare the
scolding; be economical of the satire; shut
np In a dark cave, from which tbey shall
never swarm forth, all the worda that
have a sting in them. You will wish you
had some day very soon you will per
haps to-morrow. Oh, yes. While with
a firm hand you administer parental dis
cipline, also administer it very gently,
lest some day there be a little slab In the
cemetery, and on It chiseled "Our Willie"
or "Our Charlie." and thouith vou bow
down prone in the grave and seek a place
of repentance and seek it carefully with
tears you cannot find it.
There is another sin that I place in the
class of irrevocable -mistakes, and that is
lost opportunities of getting good. I
never come to a Suturday night but I can
see during that week that 1 have missed
opportunities of getting good. I never
come to my birthday but I can see that
I bave wasted many chances of getting
better. I never go home on Sabbath from
the discussion of a religious theme with
out feeling that I might have done it in
a more successful way. How ia it with
you? If you take a certain number of
bushels of w;heat and scatter them over
a certain number of acres of land, you
expect a harvest in proportion to the
amount of seed scattered. And I ask
you now. Have the sheaves of moral and
spiritual harvest corresponded with the
advunt'iges given? How has if neen with
you? Y'ou may make resolutions for the
future, but past opportunities are gone.
In the long procession of future years all
those past moments will march, but the
archangel's trumpet that wakes the dead
wilt not "wake up for you one of those
Fsan has sold his birthright, nnd there
Is not wealth enough in the treasure
houses of heaven to buy it buck again.
What does that mean? It means that if
you are going to get any advantage lut of
this Sabbath day, you will have to get
It before the hand wheels around on the
clock to 12 to-night. It means that every
moment ijf our life has two wings, and
that it does not fly, like a lawk, in circles,
but in a straight line from eternity to
eternity. It means that though other
chariots may break down, or drag heavily,
this one never drops the brake and never
ceases t run. It means that while at
other fensts the cup may be passed to us
and we may reject it, and yet after
awhile take It, the cupbearers to this
fnst never give us but one chance at the
chalice, and. rejecting that, we shall "find
no place for repentance, though we seek it
carefully with tears."
Lost Opportunities.
There is one more class of sins that I
put in this category of irrevocable sins
and that is lost opportunities of useful
ness. Your business partner Is a proud
mnn. In ordinary circumstances, say to
him, "Believe in Christ," and lie will say.
Y'ou mind your business and I'll mind
mine." But there has been affliction In
the household. His heart ia tender. He is
looking around for sympathy and solace.
Now is your time. Speak, speak, or for
ever hold your peace. There is a time in
farm life when you plant the corn and
when you sow the seed. Let thar go by,
and the farmer will wring his hands while
other husbandmen are gathering in the
sheaves. You are in a religio is Meeting,
and tin-re is ns opportunity for you to
speak a word for Christ. You say, "I j
must do it." Your cheek flushes with em- 1
barrassment. Yon rise half w iy, but you I
cower before men whose breath is in j
their nostrils, and you sag back, and the j
pporluiiity is gone and all eternity will
eel the effect of your silence. Try to
et back that opportunity! on cannot
find it. oii might us well try to find
the lb-ece that Gi.l 'on watched, or lake

I r-tatul bel'i ire those who have a glori
oiir birthright. K sau's wits 'lot so rich
as yo ir Sell it once, and you sell it for

the Arctic some years ngo ihc lad Stew

Arctic in the time of a fog. and it Has
found that the Miip must go down. Some
of ) li i ' p,ii.i l.gcrs g'ot off in till lifeboats,

liny ii.iild no more set off the mm.
The lad broke in the naga.iiie and
brought out more powder and again the
gun I med over the hi a. Oh, my friends,
tossed on the rough seas of life, some have
taken the warning, have gone off in the
lifeboat and they are safe, but others are
not milking any attempts to escape. So I
stand nt this signal gun of the gospel,
sounding the alarm, Hewve! beware!
