In a recent sermon at Brooklyn Dr.
Talmagc chose for his text, "Come'
Genesis, vi. IS. 4Comc Revelations
xxiL 17. Following is the sermon:
Imperial, tender and all persuasive is
this word "Come." Six hundred and
seventy-eight times is it found in the
Scriptures. It stands at the front gate
of the Bible as in mj- first text, inviting
antediluvians into Noah' ark, and it
stands at the other gate of the Itiblc as
in my second text, inviting the postr
ililuvians into the ark of a Saviour's
mercy. ''Come' is only a word of four
letters, hut It is the queen of words,
and nearly the entire nation of English
vocabulary bows to its scepter. It is
an ocean into which empty ten thousand
rivers of meaning. Other word drivel
but this.becknns. All moods of feeling
hath that word "Come." Sometimes it
weeps and sometimes it laughs. Some
times it prays sometimes it tempts, and
sometimes it destroys. It sounds from
the door of the church and from the
seraglios of sin,f rom the gates of Heaven
and the gates of hell. It is confident
andaccrweent of all power. It is the
heiress of raostof the past and almoner
oi most of the future. iCome. You
may pronounce it so that all the heav
ens will le heard in its cadences, or pro
nounce it so that al! the woes of time
nd eternity .shall reverberate in its one
syllable. It is on the top lip of saint
and profligate. It is the mightiest of
all solicitants either for good or bad.
To-day I weigh anchor, and haul in
the planks, and set .sail on that great
word, although I am sure I will not le
able to reach the further shore. I will
letdown the fathoming line into this
sea and try to measure its depths, and,
though I tie together all the cables and
cordage I have on board, I will not le
able to touch bottom. All the power
of the Christian religion is in that word
"Come." The dictatorial and corn
mandatory in religion is of no avail.
The imperative mood is not the appro
priate mood when we would have peo
ple savingly impressed. They may Ik.
coaxed, but they can not be driven. Our
hearts are like our homes; at a friendly
knock the door will le opened, but an
attempt to force ojxm our door would
land the assailant in prison. Our theo
logical seminaries, which keep young
men three j-ears in theirnrriculum be
fore launcliing them into the ministry.
-a ill do well if in so short a time they
can teach the candidates for the holy
office how to say with right emphasis
and intonation and power that one
word "Come!" That man who has
such efficiency in Christian work, and
that woman who has such power to
persuade people to quit the wrong and
lcgin the right, went through a series
of losses bereavements, persecutions
and the trials of twenty or thirt years
before they could make it a triumph of
grace ex-cry time they uttered the word
You must rememlicr that in many
cases our "Come" has a mightier
"Come' to conquer before it has any
effect at all. Just give me the accurate
census the statistics of how many are
down in fraud, in drunkenness, in
gambling, in impurity or in virc of any
sort, and I will give 3011 the accurate
census or statistics of how many have
leen slain by the word "Come." "Come
and click wine ghisses with me at this
ivory bar." "Come and see what ve
can win at this gaming table.' "Cmne,
enter with me this doubtful specula
tion." "Come with me and read those
infidel tracts on Christianity." "Come
with me to a place of bad amusement"
"Come with me in a gay bout through
underground New York."
If in tins citj there are 20,000 who are
down in moral character, then 20,000
fell under the power of the word
"Come." I was reading of a wife whose
husband had leen overthrown by strong
drink, and she went to the saloon where
he was ruined, and she said: "Give me
back m3 husband." And the bartender,
pointing to a maudlin and battered man
drowsing in the corner of the barroom,
said: 'There he is; .lim, wake up;
here's your wife come for you." And
the woman said: "I)o you call that my
husband? What have you been doing
with him? Is that the manly brow? Is
that the clear eye? Is that the heart
that I married? What vile drug have
you given him that has turned him into
a fiend? Take your tiger claws off of
him. Uncoil those serpent folds of evil
habit that are crushing him. Give me
back my husband, the one with -a hom
I stood at the altar ten years ago. Give
him back to me." Victim was he, as
millions of others have been, of the
Now we want all the world over to
harness this word for good as others
have harnessed it for evil and it will
draw the five continents and the seas
between them; yea, it will draw the
whole earth back to the God from whom
it has wandered. It is that wooing and
persuasive word that will lead men to
give up their sins. Was skepticism
ever brought into love of the truth by
an ebulition of hot words against infi
delity? Was ever the blasphemer
stopped in his oaths by denunciation of
blasphemy? Was ever a drunkard
weaned from his cups by the temper
ance lecturer's mimicry of staggering
steps and hiccough? No. It was:
"Come with me to church to-day and
hear our singing;" "Come and let me
introduce you to a Christian man whom
tou will be sure to admire;" "Come
with me into associations that arc
cheerful and good and inspiring;"
"Come with me "into joy such as you
never before experienced."
With that word which has done so
much for others I approach you to-day.
Arc you all right with God? "No," yon
say, "I think I am not; I am sometimes
alarmed when I think of Him; I fear I
will not be ready to meet Him in the
last day; my heart is not right with
God. Come then and have it made
right. Through the Christ who died to
save you, come! What is the use in
waiting? The longer you wait the
further off you are and the deeper you
are down. Strike out for Heaven! You
remember that a few years ago a
steamer called the Princess Alice, with
a crowd of excursionists aboard, sank
in the Thames, and there was an awful
sacrifice of life, A boatman from the
shore put out for the rescne, and he had
a big boat, and he got it so full it would
not hold another person, and as he laid
hold of the oars to pull for the shore,
leaving hundreds helpless and drown
ing, he cried out: "O, that I had a big
ger boat!" Thank God lam not lim
ited, and that I can promise room for
all in this gospel boat. .Get in; get ia!
And yet there is -room. Boom in the
heart of a pardoning God. Xosam ia
I also apply the word of any text to
those who would like practical comfort.
If any ever escape the straggle of life, I
have not found them. They axe not
certainly among the prosperous rlafifim
Inmost cases it is a straggle all the
way up till they reach the prosperity,
and since they have reached these
heights there hare been perplexities,
societies and crises which were almost
enbagh to shatter the nerves and turn
the brain. It would be hard to tell
which have the D'ggeat tght la ahla
world the prosperities or the aavemi
tiea, the consfKcuties or the obacaritfcs.
Jast m boob as yo have enonffh sac
cess to attract the attention of others,
the envies and jealousies arc let loose
from their kenncL The greatest crime
you can conuult ia the estimation of
others is to get on better than they do.
They think your addition is their sub
traction. Five hundred persoaa start
for a certain goal of ssccess; one reaches
it and the other 4W are mad.
It would take volanes to hold the
story of the wrongs, outrages and de
falcations that have come upon you as
a result of your success. The warm
sun of prosperity brings iato life a
swamp fall of annoying insects.' On
the other hand the unfortunate elate
have their struggles for maintenance.
To achieve a livlihood by one who had
nothing to start with, and carry this on
until children are reared and educated
and fairly started in the world, and to
do this amid all the rivalries of busi
ness and uncertainties of crops and the
fickleness of tariff legislation, with an
occasional labor strike and here and
there a financial panic thrown in, is a
mighty thing to do, and there are hun
dreds and thousands such- heroes and
heroines who live nnng and die unr

up or down in life or half way between,
is the infinite solace of the Christian re

armed only with needle or saw, or ax,

I like the faith displayed years ago in
Drury Lane, Iondon, in an humble
home where every particle of food had
given out, and a kindly soul entered
with tea and other table supplies and
found a fire ready for the tea. The
benevolent lady said: "How is it that
you have the kettle ready for the tea
when you have no tea in the house?"
And the daughter of the home said:
"Mother would have me put the kettle
on the fire, and when I said, 'what is
the use of doing so, when we have
nothing in the house? she said 'my
child, God will provide; thirty 3ears he
has alrcad3- provided forme through all

Such things the world call coinci

of them, they are occurring every hour

Hut the word "Come" applied to those
who need solace will amount to nothing
unless it be uttered by some one who
has experienced that solace. That
spreads the responsibility of giving this
gospel call among a great many. Those
who have lost property and Wen con
soled by religion in that trial, are the
ones to invite those who have failed in
business. Those who have lost their
health and leen consoled 03 religion
are the ones to invite the ones who are
in oor health. Those who have had
liereavcments and been consoled in
those bereavements are tho ones to
sympathize with those who have
lost father or mother or companion or
friend. What multitudesof us arc alive
to-day and in good health and buoyant
in this journey of life, who would have
been broken down or dead long ago but
for the sustaining and cheering help of
our holy religion! So we say, "Come!"
The well is not dry. The buckets arc
not empty. The suppty L not exhaust
ed. There is just as much mercy and
condolence and soothing power in God
as lief ore the first grave was dug, or the
first tear was started, or the first heart
broken, or the first accident happened
or the first fortune vanished. Those of
us who have felt the consolatory power
of religion have a right to speak out of
our own experience and say, "Come!"
What dismal work of condolence the
world makes when it attempts to con
dole! The plaster they'spread does not
stick. The broken bones under their
bandage do not knit A farmer was
lost in the snow storm on a prairie of
the far West Night coming on and
after he was almost frantic from not
knowing which way to go his sleigh
struck the rut of another sleigh and he
said: "I will follow this rut and it will
take me out to safety. " He hastened on
until he heard the bells of the preced
ing horses but, coining up, he found
that that man was also lost aud, as is
the tendency of those who arc thus con
fused in the forest or on the moors
they were both moving in a circle and
the runner of the one lost sleigh was
following the runner of the other lost
sleigh round and round. At last it oc
curred to them to look at the north star,
which was peering through the night,
and by the direction of that star they
got home again.
Those who follow the advice of this
world in time of perplexity are in a
fearful round, for it is one bewildered
soul following another bewildered soul,
and only those who have in such time
got their eye on the morning star of
our Christian faith can find their way
out, or be strong enough to lead others
with an all persuasive invitation.
"Hut," says some one, "you Christian
people keep telling us to 'come, yet
you do not tell us how to come." That
charge shall not be true on this occa
sion. Come Tielieving! Come repent
ing! Come praying! After all that
God has been doing for G.aOQ. .years,
sometimes through patriarchs andsome
times through prophets, and at last
through the culmination of all tragedies
on Golgotha, can any one think that
God will not welcome your coming?
Will a father at vast outlay construct a
mansion for his son, and lay out
parks white with statues and green
with foliage, and all a sparkle with
fountains and then not allow his son
to live in the house or walk in the
parks? Has God built this house of
gospel mercy and will He then refuse
entrance to His children? Will a Gov
ernment at great expense build life
saving stations all along the coast and
boats that can hover aahurt like a
petrel over the wildest surge, and then
when the lifeboat has reached the
wreck of a ship in the offing not allow
the drowning to seize the life-line or
take the hoat for the shore in safety?

When Russia was in one arf her great
wars the suffering of the soldiers had
been long and bitter and they were wait
ing for the end of the strife. One day a
messenger in great excitement ran
among the tents of the army shouting:
"Peace! Peace!" The sentinel on guard
asked; "Who says 'Peace?'" And the
sick soldier turned on his hospital mat
tress and asked: "Who says Perce?" and
all up and down the ei arapment of the
Russians went the question: "Who
says "Peace?" Then the messenger re
sponded: "The Czar says 'Peace.'"
That was enough. Th.it meant going
home. That meant the war was over.
No more wounds and no more long
marches. So to-day, as one of the
Lords messengers I move through
these great encampments of souls and
cry: "Peace between earth and Heaven!
Peace between God and man! Peace be
tween your repenting soul and a par
doning Lord!" If you ask me, "who
says Peace?" I answer: "Christ our
King, declares it;" "M3' peace I give
unto you!" "Peace of God that pass

OATS VERSUS BRAN.
Reu!tit of Kxperlmrnt Conilaetrd at the
Two feeding experiments for the pur
pose of ascertaining the value of ground
oats and of bran for milch cows, were
conducted :it the Wisconsin Kxnerimcnt
Station during the lust 3ear. Two cows
were used on the first experiment and
four on the t econd one. The cows were
fed the sumo quantities, bv weight of
oats and bnin. eight pounds daily per
head on this first experiment and ten
pounds on the second, and, in addition,
the same fundamentil ration of eorn
tneal, hay and corn silage or fodder
corn. The effect of similar weights of
oats or bran in a ration for milch cows
was thus studied. It.wjis found that
the cows invariably did letter on oats,
going up in milk 3-ield when coming on
oats and going down when bran was
fed. while the fat content of the milk
remained the same on an average. The
average figures for the six cows nre
given in the following table:

Thus, as the average for six cows, a
gain of alnmt ten per cent in the milk
and milk fat was found, resulting from
feeding of oats instead of an equal
quautit3 of bran.
This result was shown to have been
produced from ;ilout equal quantities
of food materials in the two cases, ajad
the oats therefore seom to have a high

aspeet of the question is considered, it
will le seen that at the present market
prices for the two feeds, bran Stl per
ton and oats twentj'-three cents per
bushel, the former is the cheaper feed
of the two. The conclusion reached by
the two experiments is. that where the
difference in price lwtween the two
feeds is greater than ten percent in
favor of the bran, it is not good econ

writes: "My food did not seem to

such pains in my left side. In the
morning when I got up I would
have a flow of mucus in the mouth,

such queer, tumbling, palpitating
sensations around the heart. I ached
all day under the shoulder blades,
in the left side, and down the back
of my limbs. It seemed to be worse
in the wet, cold weather of Winter
and Spring; and whenever the spells
came on, my feet and hands would
turn cold, and I could get no sleep
at all. I tried everywhere, and got
no relief before using August Flower
Then the change came. It has done
me a wonderful deal of good during
the time I have taken it and is work
ing a complete cure."
