National Sin* Are FunUhed by Keen
Instrument* — No Calamity Happen*
by Chance, but la Directed by Divine
(Copyright, 1900, by Ijouls Kiopsch.)
Dr. Talmage, In his journey west
ward, through Europe, has recently
visited scenes of thrilling historic
events. He sends this sermon, in
which he shows that nations are Judg
ed in this world and that God re
wards them for their virtues and pun
ishes them for their crimes. The text
is Isaiah vii, 20, "In the same day
shall the Lord shave with a razor that
is hired, namely, by them beyond the
river, by the king of Assyria."
The Bible is the bolde. t book ever
written. There are no simiitudes in
Osslan of the Iliad or the Odyssey so
daring. Its imagery sometimes seems
on the verge of the reckless, but only
seems so. The fact is that God w’oiud
startle and arouse and propel men and
nations. A tame and limping simll
tude would fail to accomplish the ob
ject. While there are times when he
employs in the Bible the gentle dew
and the morning cloud and the dove j
and the daybreak in the preaen'.at on |
of truth, we often find the iron chariot,
the lightning, the earthquake, the
spray, the sword, and, in my text, the '
razor. This keen-bladed instrument 1
has advanced in usefulness with the
ages. In Bible times and lands the
beard remained uncut save in the saa
sons of mourning and humiliation, but
the razor was always a suggestive !
e umKaI Tin vrl d an 1,1 ci # T lr.n cr h iu an.
tagonlgt, "Thy tongue la a sharp ra- j
zor working deceitfully"—that is, It
pretends to clear the face, but is really
used for deadly incision.
In this striking text this weapon of
the toilet appears, under the followin’
circumstances: Judea needed to have
some of its properties cut off, and Gol j
sends against It three Assyrian k ngs
—first Sennacherib, then Earhad.'.on
and afterward Nebuchadnezzar. Thesj 1
three sharp invasions that cut down [
the glory of Judea are compared to so
many sweeps of the razor across the
face of the land. And these devasta- )
tions were called a hired razor because
God took the kings of Assyria,
whom he had no sympathy, to do the !
work and paid them in palaces and
spoils and annexations. These sing;
were hired to execute the divine be
hests. And now the text, which on its
first reading may have seemed trivial
or inapt, is charged with momentous
import, "In the same day shall the
Lord shave with a razor tiiat is hired,
namely, by them beyond the river, by
the king of Assyria.”
IUr,om of
Well, if God s judgments are razors,
we had better be careful how we use
them on other people. In careful
sheath these domestic weapons are
put away where no one by accident
may touch them, and where the hands
of children may not reach them. Such
instruments must be carefully handled
or not bandied at all. But how reck
lessly some people wield the judg- I
ments or God! It a man meets with
business misfortune, how many there
! are ready to cry out: “That is a judg
| ment of God upon him because he was
| unscrupulous or arrogant or over
| reaching or miserly. I thought he
! would get cut down. What a clean
sweep of everything! His city house
and country house gone. His stables
emptied of all the fine bays and sorrels
and grays that used to prance by his
door. All his resources overthrown
and all that he prided himself on
tumbled Into demolition. Good for
him!'' Stop, my brother. Don't sling
around so freely the Judgments of
God, for they are razors.
Some of the most wicked hus'ness
men succeed, and they live and die in
prosperity, and some of the most hon
est and conscientious are driven into
bankruptcy, l’erbaps the unsuccessful
man's manner was unfortunate, a: d
he was not really as proud as he lock
ed to be. Some of those who carry
their heads erect and look imperial are
: humble as a child, while many a m: n
in seedy coat and slouch hat and un
blacked shoes Is as proud as Lucifer,
You cannot tell by a man's look. I’, r

story, and everybody that accomplish

Let us be careful bow we shoot at
others lest wo take down the wrong
one, remembering the servant of King
William Rufus, who shot at a deer,
but the arrow glanced at a tree and
killed the king. Instead of going out
with shafts to pierce and razors to
cut we had better imitate the friend
of Richard Coeur de Lion. Richard, in
the war of the Crusades, was captured
and imprisoned, but none of his
friends knew where, so his loyal frien t
went around the land from stronghold
to stronghold and sang at each win- j
dow a snatch of Rong that Richard j
Coeur de Lion had taught him in other
days. And one day, coming before a
Jail where he suspected his king |
might be incarcerated, he sang two i
lines of song, and Immediately K ng
Richard responded from his cell w,th j
the other two lines, and so his where
abouts were discovered, and a success- !
ful movement was at once made for
his liberation. So let us go up and ,
down the world with the music of kind
words and sympathetic hearts, sere- !
nadlng the unfortunate, and trying to
get out of trouble men who had noble
natures, but by unforeseen clreum- I
stanees have been incarcerated, thus
liberating kings. More hymnbook and
less razor.
Nothing Kmr "Happen*."
Again, when 1 read in my text that
the Lord shaves with the hired razor
of Assyria the land of Julea I think
myself of the precision of God’s provi
dence. A razor swung the tenth part
of an inch out of the right line means
either failure or laceration, but God's
dealings never slip, and they do not
miss by the thousandth part of an inch
the right direction. People talk as
though things in this world were at
loose ends. Cholera sweeps acres i
Marseilles and Madrid and Palermo,
and we wateh anxiously. Will the epi
demic sweep Europe and America?
People say, "That will entirely depend
on whether the inoculation Is a suc
cessful experiment; that will depend
entirely on quarantine regulations;
that will depend on the early or lat"
appearance of frost. That epidemic is
pitched into the world, and it goei
blundering across the continents, and
it is all guess-work and an appalling
"perhaps." I think, perhaps, that God
had something to do with It and that
his mercy may have in some way pro
tected us; that he may have done aB
much for us as the quarantine and the
health officers. It was right and a ne
cessity that all caution should be used,
but there have come enough macaroni
from Italy, and enough grapes from
the south of France, and enough rags
from tatterdemalions, and hidden in
these articles of transportation enough
cholera germs to have left by this time
all the cities mourning in the ceme
teries. I thank all the doctors and
quarantines, but more than all, and
first of all, and last of all, and all the
time, I thank God. in all the 0,000 ■
years of the world’s existence there
has not one thing merely “happened
so.” God is not an anarchist, but a
King, a Father.

Further, my text tells us that Go I
sometimes shaves nations. "In the
same day shall the Lord shave with a
razor that is hired." With one sharp
sweep he went across Judea, and down
went its pride and power. In 1861 God
shaved the American nation. We had
allowed to grow Sabbath desecration
and oppression and blasphemy and
fraud and impurity and all sorts of
turpitide. The south had Its sins, and
the north its sins, and the east its
sins, and the west Its sins. We had
been warned again and again, and we
did not heed. At length the word of
war cut from the St. Lawrence tv the
gulf and from the Atlantic seaboard to
Pacific seaboard. The pride of the
land, not the cowards, but the heroes,
on both sides went down. And that
which we took for the sword of war
was the land's razor, in 1862 again it
went across the land; in 1863 again;
In 1864 again. Then the sharp instru
ment was incased and put away.
Never In the history of the ages was
any laud more thoroughly shaved
tl/f.n during those four years of civil
combat, und, my brethren. If we do
not <|iiit some of our Individual and
national sins the laird will again take
u* In hand. He has other razors with
in reach besides war—epidemic*,
droughts, deluges, plagues grasshop
per and locust—or our overtowering
success may «o far ex-lte the jealousy
of other lands that under some pre
text the gnat nations may combine to
put us down. Our nation, so eazlly np
pma* hed on north and south and from
both oceana, might have on hand at
once more hostilities than were ever
array* 1 against any one power. I
hope no such i un hi nation against us
will ever be for mud, but 1 want to

King Henry II. of England crowned
bis son as king and on the day of
coronation put on a servant’s garb,
and waited, he, the king, at the son’s
talde, to the astonishment of ail the
princes. But we know of a more won

the crown of life, and in the form of a
servant waiting ou you with blessing.
Extol that love, all painting, all sculp
ture, all music, all architecture, all
worship! In Dresdeniaa gallery let
Raphael hold him up as a child, and
in Antwerp cathedral let Rubens hand
him down from the cross as a martyr,
and Handel make all his oratorio vi
brate around that one chord—“He was
wounded for our transgressions, bruis
ed for our iniquities.’’ But not until
all the redeemed get home, and from

the ransomed shall be revealed the
wonders of redemption, shall either
man or seraph or archangel know the

officials of the nation the work was

who died for the eternal liberation of
the human race ever be completed?

Massacres have profoundly affected
the history of the United States, aside
from the way in which it was affected,
by the influx of Huguenots as a conse
quence of the St. Bartholomew and
kindred crimes in France. The mur
ders of the French protestants, under
Ribault, iu Florida, by the Spaniard
Menendez in 15G5, sent the French to
Canada instead of to the South Atlan
tic coast of the present United States,
gave the latter to Spain, and thua
made Florida far easier to win by the
United States after this country's in
dependence was gained. Devastation
along the northern border of New
England by the French and Indians in
the various Intercolonial 'wars, which
ended with 1763, Incited the resistance
on the part of England aid its depen
dencies which drove Fvance out of
Canada and the Mississippi Valley In
that year and hastened the revolution,
which, a dozen years later, expelled
England from the thirteen colonies,
says i/oslle's Weekly. Onslaughts on
the French in Santo Domingo by the
negroes In 1S01 and 1802, that Island
being then a French colony, prevent
ed Bonaparte from sending an army
to take possession of New Orleans,
which had been retroceded to France
by Spain, and was one of the causes
of the cession of Louisiana by France
to the United Statea iu 1803. which was
the first and greatest expansion ever
made in this country, and which made
all subsequent expansions—Florida,
Texas, Oregon, California. New Mexi
co, Alaska, Hawaii, Porto Rico and the
Philippines—inevitable. DPraell'a as

1. There should he n brief review of the
life of Christ from the beginning up to
tho close of the third yturs of hi* ininls

period of about eight month*, from April
to December, A. 1>. 2;*. They nil bciong
to the third years of the ministry of
Jesus, the year of development, a large
part of (he teachings, being the enforce
ment and enlargement of those that had
been uttered to Home extent before.

the last part of the Galilean ministry anil
the earlier part of the 1 orean ministry,

The Trumpet Cull presents the following
plan for a review by Professor Hamltl:
"Note to Leader. About three weeks
before Review Sunday give each scholar
a diagram of u clock face with the name
CHRIST In center a* below, and say, T
wish each of you to make a Review Les
son Clock in this way. On the line from
the word Christ to No. 1. write one thing
which yon learned about him In the lirst
lesson, tin the next l.m- write one thing
learned about Christ from Lesson IL,
and so for each lesson of the quarter.’
"Tell the scholars that for Review Sun
day you will have a large clock face on
the hoard. Tell them to bring their com
pleted diagrams to you on the third Sun
day In March and you will use the beat
one as a copy for Idling out your large
"The above plan may he adopted either
for single class or entire school. If a
General Exercise Is desired, conduct the
review as follows: Select the twelve
scholars who have shown most Interest
In this work; assign one lesson to each,
and have each prepared to make a brief
statement of that lesson. Have a real
Bliiklng dock placed where all can see It.
When nil Is ready, turn the hands to one
o'clock; as the (lock strikes one, let first
scholar tell of Lesson I. In his own words.
Then turn the hands to two o'clock, and
as the clock strikes two, have next
scholar give statement of Lesson II. Fol
low this plan with all the lessons. Inter
sperse with songs."
We look at the life of Christ from an
other point of view, and It gains reality
and vividness If we trace out the move
ments of Jesus upon the map. Like the
Greek scholar in Tom Brown at Oxford,
who traced on a map by means of colored
pins the famous retreat of the ten thou
sand under Xenophon, we may trace In
the same way the Journeys of Jesus re
ferred to tn the lessons for this quarter.
At each place we may call for a brief de
scription of the town, and for the chief
events which cluster around It. hut es
pecially those connected with the life of
Christ. If we have a large map we may
use pins with llyers on them marking the
name of each place as we come to it.
Alliance of Marriageable flirle.
The Mutual Protection Alliance so
ciety is the name adopted by an asso
ciation of wompn In Plymouth county,
Mass. To be eligible for membership
one must be between 17 and 30 years
old, and must agree to let the society
examine into the qualifications of any
suitor for a member's hand. The meth
od of looking into the character of a
young man is simple. The society J
holds one of Its stated meetings, and
each young woman who has a swain of
whom she is at all doubtful gives his
name and as many particulars as she
deems desirable to the club. All is
held in strict secrecy. A committee
is appointed from among those pres
ent. and then there commences an in
vestigation. Woe to the young man
who has been engaged and broken it
nfT without good cause, to him who i
runs off to Boston and puts poison in- I
to his mouth to steal away his brains,
nr to him who is mixed up in any ma
trimonial entanglement. By the time
the committee lias got through with its
inquiries there is not much left to find
out about the victim. If the report Is
unfavorable the young man soon finds
himself ostracised, anil It Is said that
j already several have left the county
without making good explanations.
