In a late sermon at Brooklyn Ber. T.
y ,JeWitt Talmsge took his text from
f A&k x. 21: "One thing thou lackest
Rxhe young man of the text was a
splendid nature. We fall in lore with
him at the first glance. lie was amiable,
frank, earnest, educated, refined, re
spectable and moral, and jet he was sot
a Christian. And to Christ addressed
him in the words that I hare read to
jon: "One thing thou lackest. I sap
pose that the text was no more appro
priate to the young man of whom I
hare just spoken than it is appropriate
to a great multitude of people in this
audience. There are many things in
which yon are not lacking. For instance,
you arc not lacking in a good home.
Neither are yon lacking in the
refinements and courtesies of life.
Yon understand the polite phraseology
of invitation, regard and apology. Yon
have on appropriate apparel. If I am
well clothed on other occasions, I
will be in a religious audience.
However reckless I may be about
my personal appearance at other
times, when I come into a con
secrated assemblage I shall have on the
"bes dress I have. We all understand
the proprieties of every day life and the
proprieties of Sabbath life.
Neither arc you lacking in worldly
success. You have not made as much
money as you would like to make, but
you have an income. While others are
falc when they say they have no in
come or arc making no money, you
have never told that falsehood. You
have had a livelihood oryou have fallen
upon old resources, which is just the
bame thing, for God is just as good to us
when He takes care of us by a surplus
of the past as by present success. While
there arc thousands of men with hunger
tearing at the throat with the strength
of a tiger's paw, not one of you is
hungry Neither arc you lacking in
pleasant friendship. You have real
good friends. If the scarlet fever
should come to-night to yonr house, you
know very well who would come in and
sit up with the sick one; or, if death
should come, you know who would
come in and take your hand tight in
theirs with that peculiar grip which
means "I'll stand by you."
Friends? You all have friends.
Neither are you lacking in your admir
ation of the Christian religion. There
is nothing that makes you so angry as
to have a man malign Christ. Yon get
red in the face and you say: "Sir, I
want you to understand that though I
am not myself a Christian, I don't like
such things said as that in my store,
and the man goes off, giving you a part
ing salutation, but you hardly answer
him. You are provoked beyond all
Many of you have been supporters of
religion and have given more to the
" cause of Christ than some who profess
His faith. There is nothing that would
please 3'ou more than to see your son or
daughter standing at the altar of Christ,
talcing the vows of the Christian. It
might be a little hard on you, and might
make you nervous and agitated for a
little while, but you would be man
enough to say: "My child, that is
right. Go on, I am glad you haven't
been kept back by my example. I hope
some day to join you." You believe all
Jie doctrines of religion. A man out
yonder sa3s: "I am a sinner." You re
spond: "So am I." Some one says: "I
believe that Christ came to save the
world." You say: "So do I." Look
ing at your character, at your surround
ings, I find a thousand things about
which to congratulate you, and yet I
must tell yon, in the love and fear of
God, and ith reference toatny last ac
count: "One thing thou lackest."
You need, my friends, in the first
place, the element of happiness. Some
day you feel wretched. You do not
knoy what is the matter with you.
You say: "I did not sleep last night.
I think that must be the reason of my
restlessness;' or "I have eaten some
thing that did not agree with me, and
I think that must be the reason." And
you are unhappy. O, my friends hap
piness docs not depend upon physical
condition. Some of the happiest people
I have ever known have been those who
have been wrapped in consumption or
stung with neuralgia, or burning with
the slow fire of some fever. I never
shall forget one man in my first parish,
who, in excruciation of body, cried out:
"Mr. Talmage, I forgot all my pain in
the love and joy of Jesus Christ. I
can't think of my sufferings when I
think of Christ."
There are young men who have not
been Christians more than six months
who would stand up to-night, if I should
ask them, and say in those six months
they fiavc had more joy and satisfaction
than in all the years of their frivolity
end dissipation. Go to the door of that
gin shop to-night, and when the gang
of young men come out ask them if they
are happv. They laugh along the street,
and they jeer, and they shout; but no
body has any idea that they arc happy.
1 could call upon tne ajrea men in
this house to give testimony. There
are aged men here who tried the world,
and they tried religion, and they are
willing to testify on our side. It was
not long ago that an aged man arose in
a prayer circle and said: "Brethren, I
lost my son just as he was graduated
from college, and it broke my heart,
but I am glad now he has gone. He is
at rest, escaped from all sorrow and all
trouble. And then, in 1657, 1 lost all
my property, and you see I am getting
old, and it is rather hard upon me; but I
am sure God will not let me suffer. He
has not taken care of me for seventy-
five years now to let me drop cut of His
hands. I went into the room of an
aged man his eyesight nearly gone,
his hearing nearly gone and what do
tou suppose he was talking about?
The goodness of God and the joys of re
ligion. What is it that gave that aged
man so much satisfaction and peace?
It is the grace of God that is brighter
than sunshine and that is sweeter than
music O, religion's "ways are ways of
pleasantness and all her paths are
peace. And if yom have sot the satis
faction that is to be found in Jesaa
Christ I mast tell yoa, with all the con
centrated emphasis of my soul: "One
thing thou lackest"
I remark again, that yom lack the ele
ment of usefulness. Where la yoar
business? Yon say it is No. 45 sack m

years of age and yet hare not begun the

Again, you lack the element of per
sonal safety. Where are those people
who associated with you twenty years
ago? Where are those people that fif
teen years ago. used to cross South
ferry or Fulton ferry with you to New
York? Walk down the street where
you were in business fifteen years ago
and see how all the signs have changed.
Where are the people gone? How many
of them arc landed in eternity I can not
say, but many, many. I went to the
village -of my boyhood. 'Die houses
were all changed. I passed one house
in which once resided a man who had
lived an earnest useful life, and he is in
glory now. In the next house a miser
lived. He devoured widows houses, and
spent his whole life in trying to make
the world worse and worse. And
he is gone the good man and the miser
both gone to the same place. Ah, did
they go to the same place? It is
an infinite absurdity to suppose them in
the same place. If the miser had a
harp, what tune did lie play on it? O,
my friends, I commend to yon this re
ligion as the only personal safety. When
you die, where are you going to? When
you leave all these scenes, upon what
scenes will you enter?
Suppose a man is prepared for the
future world, what difference docs It
make to him whether he goes to his
home to-day or goes into glory? Only
this difference. If he dies he is better
off. Where he had one joy on earth he
will have a million in Heaven. When
he has a small sphere here he will hare
a grand sphere there.
My hope in Christ is not so bright as
many Christians I know; but I would
not give it up for the whole universe,
in one eash payment if it were offered
me. It has been so much comfort to
me in time of trouble, it has been so
much strength to me when I have been
assailed, it has been so much rest to me
when I have been perplexed, and it is
around my heart such an encasement
of satisfaction and blessedness that I
fln tt anil linm YMfntv f.rw1 ntirl aave.
Take away my health, take away my
life, take any thing rather than rob me
of this hope, this plain simple hope
which I have in Jesus Christ my Lord.
I must have this robe when the hut
chill strikes through me. I must have
this light when all other lights go out
in the blast that comes up from the cold
Jordan. I mast have this sword with
which to fight my way through all those
foes on my way heavenward.
When I was in London I saw
there the wonderful armor of Henry
VIIL and Edward III. and yet I
have to tell you that there is nothing in
chain mail or brass plate or gauntlet or
halberd that makes a man so safe as
the armor in which the Lord clothes his
dear children. O, there is a safety in
religion. You will ride down all your
foes. Look out for the man who has
the strength of the Lord God with him.
In olden times the horsemen usedio ride
into battle with lifted lances, and the
enemy fled the field.
The Lord on the white horse of vic
tory, and with lifted lances of divine
strength, rides into the battle, and
down goes the spiritual foe; while the
victor shouts the triumph through the
Lord Jesus Christ As a matter of per
sonal safety, my dear friend, you must
have this religion.
I apply my subject to several classes
of people before me. First, to that
great multitude of young people in this
audience. Some of these young men
are in lxtarding houses. They have but
few social advantages. They think
that no one cares for their souls. Many
of them arc on small salaries, and they
are cramped and bothered perpetually,
and sometimes their heart fails them.
Young men, to-night at your bedroom
door on the third floor you will hear a
knocking. It will be the hand of Jesus
Christ the young man's friend, saying:
0, young man, let me come in; 1 will
help thee, I will comfort thee, I w ill de
liver thee." Take the Bible out of the
trunk, if it has been hidden away. If
you have not the courage to lay it on
the shelf or table take that llible that
was given to you by some loved one,
take it out of the trunk and lay it
down on the bottom of the
chair, then kneel down beside it
and read and pray and pray and read
until all your disturbance is gone, and
you feel that peace which neither earth
nor hell can rob you of. Thy father's
God, thy mother's God waits for thee.

Escape now! "One thing thou lackest!"
But I apply this subject to the aged
not many here. Not many in any as
semblage. Feople do not live to get old.
That is the general rule. Here and
there an aged man in the house. I tell
you the truth. You have lived long
enough in this world to know that it
can not satisfy an immortal nature. I
must talk to yon more reverentially
than I do to these other people, while
at the same time I speak with great
plainness. O, father of the weary step,
O, mother, bent down under the ail
ments of life, has thy God ever forsaken
thee? Through all these years, who
has been your best friend?
Seventy years of mercies? Seventy
years of food and clothing! O, how
many bright mornings! How many
glorious evening hours have yon seen!
O, father, mother, God has been very
good toy on. Do yon feel it? Some of
yon have children and grand-children;
the former cheered your young life, the

tiny fingers. Has all the goodness that

enough to break through the deafness

for an old man to become a Christian.

If you have ever been on the sea, yon
have been surprised in the first voyage
to find there are so few sails in sight
Sometimes yon go along two, three,
four, five, six and seven days and do not
see a single sail; but when a vessel does
come in sight the sea glasses are lifted
to the eye, the vessel is watched, and if
it comes very near, the captain, through
the trumpet cries loudly across the
water: "Whither bound?"
So yon and I meet on this sea of life.
We come and we go. Some of us have
never met before. Some of us will
never meet again. But I hail yon
across the sea, and with reference to
the last great day, and with reference
to the two great words, I cry across the
water: "Whither bound? Whither

There are so many souls to be saved.

gracious. In this closing moment of

HOW TO STAMP LETTERS.
The Upper Klcht-IIand Corner Is the
It has become a custom which all
thoughtful persons always observe, to
place the stamp on the upper right-hand
corner of the envelope, but few people
have ever stopped to think what was
the reason for this choice of position.
The canceling stamp and the postm ark
ing stamp are fastened side by side upon
the same handle, and if the stamp is
correctly placed one blow makes both
impressions. If, however, the stamp is
on the lower right-hand corner the post
mark falls on the address, and both are
illegible, whik if the stamp is on the
left-hand side, the postmark, which is
always at the left of the canceled does
not strike the envelope at all, and a
second blow is necessary to secure it
So, if the stamp is any where except in
the upper right-hand corner, it makes
just twice as much work for the clerk,
and this where he is stamping many
thousand pieces every day, is no small
matter. There has been in use for some
time, in the post-office in Boston, a
number of canceling machines, into
which the letters, all faced upward, are
fed. These machines, if the stamps ar
correctly placed, do the work quite
well, leaving on the envelope the row
of long black lines which we all have
noticed on Boston letters.
I am not able to learn, however, that
there is any other office in the country,
as yet, which uses these. The Boston
office has also, quite recently, put in
operation a most ingenious machine for
canceling and postmarking postal cards,
which differs from the other in the
greater rapidity of its work. Two
hundred cards can be placed in it at
once, a crank is turned, nnd click!
click! they fall into a basket all stamped.

Tne largest amount of jewelry known

pero, who is weU qualified to
sU points connected with Egyptology,
devotes several very interesting pages
to the subject in his charming "Historic
Beadinga." It seems that the families
of the working classes were quite as im
provident in Egypt thirty centuries ago
as some of Jthem are ia England at the
present day. At the beginning of the
month, whea they had just received
their month's rations, eating and drink
mg went on without restraint By the
middle of the month the stock began te
fail, and famine began to stare the
thriftless households hi the face. So
again and agaia they went out on strike
in order to extort more from their su
periors. A strike of masons is described
by M. Msspero in detail, snd some parts
of the description might almost be mis
taken for extracts from an English or
German newspaper in the nineteenth
century of the Christian era.
The 10th of the month the builders
employed at a temple rushed tumultu
ously out of the place where they were
working and sat down behind a chapel
in the temple precinct, exclaiming: "We
are hungry and there are eighteen days
before the next pav day." They charged
the paymasters with dishonesty, assert
ing that the Utter gave false measure.
The paymasters, on the other hand,
charged the men with want of fore
sight alleging that they spent their
wages ss soon as they touched them.
After some further negotiations with
the officers of the Government the men
resumed work on the understanding
that the King himself should receive
their complaint Two days later Pha
raoh actually visited the temple, and
when the matter was laid before him
ordered relief to be given to the woebe
gone masons. For a short time there
was quiet but boon provisions failed
and discontent broke out again with re
newed violence. On the ICth of the fol
lowing month the strike was in full
force again. Not a man would work.
On the 17th and 18th they still refused
to lift a tool. On the 19th they at
tempted to leave the precincts of the
temple in order to carry their griev
ances into the outer world, but found
that the person who was placed over
them had taken precautions so effective
ly that no one could leave. So they
spent the whole of that day in laying
their plans. On the following day they
resorted to more noisy methods. After
vainly appealing with loud cries to their
manager, they decided to apply to the
Governor of the city, and therefore
rushed through the busy streets to the
inconvenience of pedestrians, not - top
ping until they reached the Governor'
palace. Like their European successors,
these discontented artisans stubbornly
refused to work, spent many hours io
discussing their position and prospects,
disturbed the order of the streets by
their impetuous movements, and ulti
mately obtained part, at least of their
demands. So we can trace the strike
back for 3,000 years; that is, to a period
when Home was not built and even
Greek civilization was still in its infancy.
How old the method was at that time
It Is at present impossible to say. Per
haps the custom is as old as the Pyra
mids. Perhaps the first strike preceded
the most ancient of the existing monu
mentsof civilization. Pall Mall Gazette.

tleed a scary, and at tinea aeuralgic, pala
ia oae side of my head, but as it would corns
one day and be cose the aext I raid Utile
attention to it. Then say stomach wouM get
out of order and my food often failed to

lsris snd doctored myself sccordinrlr. Bat
1 got bo better. I nest noticed a peculiar j
aosas l wa pass-
- . . -
ins also that there were
one day aad very little the aexc and that a
persistent froth snd scum sppeared oa the
surface, and a sediment settled. And yet I
did not realise my danger, for, indeed, see
ing these symptoms continually, I finally
beeamo accustomed to tbess, and my suepi- j
don wss wholly disarmed by the fact that 1
had no pain ia the affected organs or in their
viemityVWhy 1 should have been so blind
I cannot. understand.
I consulted tho best medical skill In the
land. 1 visited all the famed mineral springs
In America and traveled from Maine to
California Htill I crew worse. No two
physicant sgreed ss to my malady. One j
said i was troubled witnspiasl irritation;
another, dyspepsia; another, heart disease;
another, general debility; another conges
tion of the base of tho brain ; aud so oa
through a long list of common diseases, the
symptoms of many of which 1 reaUy bad.
In this way several years passed, during
which time I was steadily growing worse.
Sly condltloB had really become pitiable.
The slight symptoms I had at first experi
enced were developed into terrible and
constant disorders. My weight had been
reduced from 207 to 130 pounds. My life
was s burden to myself snd friends. 1 could
retala so food oa my stomach, and lived
wholly by injections 1 was a living msas
of pain. My pulse wss uncontrollsble. In
my agony 1 frequently fell to the floor snd
clutched the carpet sud urayed for death.
Morphine had little or ao -ffect in deaden
ing the pain. For six days snd nights I had
the death-premonitory hiccoughs constant
ly. My water was filled with tube-casts
and albumen. I wss struggling with
Bright- Disease of the kidneys la Its last
While suffering thus I received a call from
my pastor, the Rev. Dr. Foote, at that time
rector of 8t Paul's Episcopal Church, of
this city. I felt that it was our last inter ,
view, bat ia the coarse of conversation Dr. I

physician snd s graduate of tho schools. I
derided the Idea of any medlcino outsldo the
regular channels being la the least bene
ficial. So solicitous, howerer, wss Dr.
Foote, that I finally promised I would waive
my prejudice. I began its use on tho first
day of June, 13S1, and took it according to
direction. At first it sickened mc; but
this I thought was a good sign for one ia
my debilitated condition. I continued to
take it; the sickening sensation departed
snd I was Anally able to retain food upon
my stomach. In s few dsys I noticed n de
cided change for the better, as also did my
wife snd friend. My htfeoughs ceased
sad I experienced less pain than formerly.
I was so rejoiced st this improved condition
that upon what I had believed but a few days
before wss my dying bed, I vowed, in the
presence of my family and friends, should

vately make kuown this remedy for the
good ol uumanity, wuererer anu wuencver
I hsd an opportunity, and this letter is ia
fulfillment of that vow. My improvement
wss constant from that time, and in less
than three months I had gained K pounds
In flesh, became entirely free from pain end
I behove I owe my His and present condi
tion wholly to Warner's Safe Cure, the rem
edy which I used.
Since my recovery I bsvc thoroughly re
investigated the subject of kidney diffi
culties and Bright's disease, snd the truths j
developed sro mtoundlng. I therefore j
state, deliberately, snd ss a physician, that
I believe more ttun one-half the d'athM whtch
occur in America art Muted by Br.ghVt da-
tarn of (hrkldnrm. This may sound like a '
rash statement but I am prepared to fully (
verify it Bright's disease has no distinctive ,
features of its own, (Indeed, it often devel
ops without any pais whatever in the
kidneys or their vicinity) but nsstbe symp
toms of nearly every other comeaos com

plaint," "Rheumatism," "Pneumonia," sad
other common complaints, wbea ia reality
it is from Bright's disease of the kidneys.
Few physicians, and fewer people, realize
the extent of this disease or its dangerous
and insidious nature. It steals into the
system likes thief, manifest its presence
if at sll by the commonest symptoms and
fastens itself in the constitution before the
victia is aware of it It is searlv ss hered
