THE SECOND PLAGUE.

In continuation of his sermons on
"The Ten l'lag-iics of Thcso Three
Cities" Iter. T. DcWitt Talmnge, in a
late sermon at ISroolclvn, classed in
temperance as the second plague His
text was from Genesis ix., 20, 121: "Xoah
planted a vineyard; and he drank of the
wine and w.xs drunken." The preacher
This Xoah did the best and worst
tiling for the world. He built an ark
against the deluge of water, but intro
duced a deluge against which the
human nice has ever since been
trying to build an ark the deluge
of drunkenness. In my text we
hear his staggering sk-ps. Shcin and
.lapeth tried to cover up the disgrace,
but there he is, drunk on wine at a time
in the history of the world when, tomiy
the least, there was no lack of water.
Inebriation, having entered the world,
lias not retreated. Abigail, the fair and
heroic wife, who saved the ilocks of
Xuiial. her husband, from conilscation
by invaders, goes home at night and
finds him so intoxicated she can not
tell him the story of his narrow e.s
rajHr. Uriah came to see David, and
J)avid got him drunk, and paved the
way for the despoliation of a household.
Kven the church bishops needed to be
eharged to 1m; sober and not given to too
much wiiu', and so familiar were people
of llible times with the staggering and
falling motion of the inebriate that
Isaiah, when he comes to desribo the
filial dislocation of worlds, says: "The
earth shall reel to and fro like a drunk
ard." Kvcr since apples and grapes and
wheat grew the world lias been tempted
to unhealthful stimulants, lint the in
toxicants of the olden time were an in
nocent beverage, a harmless orangeade,
a quiet sirwp, a peaceful soda water ns
compared with the liquids of modern
inebriation, into which a madness, and
a fury, and a gloom, and a lire, and a
suicide, and a retribution have mixed
and mingled. I'ermentation. was al
ways known, but it was not un
til a thousand years after Christ that
distillation was invented. "While we
must confess thaC some of the ancient
arts have been lost, the Christian era Is
superior to all others in the bad emi
nence of whisky and rum and gin. The
modern drunk is a hundred fold worse
than the ancient drunk. Xoah in his
intoxication became imbecile, but the
victims of modern alcoholism have to
struggle with whole menageries of wild
beasts and jungles of hissing serpents
and perditions of blaspheming demons.
An arch fiend arrived in our
world, and he built an invisible
cauldron of temptation. He built that
cauldron strong and stout for all ages
and nil nations. First he. squeezed into
the cauldron the juices of tho forbidden
fruit of paradise. Then he gathered for
it a distillation from the harvest fields
and the orchards of the hemispheres.
Then he joured into this cauldroli ca
siuum. and copperas, and logwood, and
deadly nightshade, and assault and bat
tery, and vitriol, and opium, and rum,
and murder, and sulphuric acid, and
theft, and potash, and cochineal, and
red carrots, and poverty, and death and
hops. Hut it was a dry compound, and
it must be moistened, and it must be
liquified, and so the arch fiend poured
into that cauldron the tears of centuries
of orphanage and widowhood, and he
poured in the blood of twenty thousand
assassinations. And then the arch fiend
took a. shovel that he had brought up
from the furnaces beneath, and he put
that shovel into this great cauldron and
began to stir, and the cauldron began to
heave, and rock, and 1k51, and sputter,
and hbs, and smoke, ami the nations
gathered around il with cups and tank
ards and demijohns and kegs, and there
was enough for all, and the archfiend
"Aha! champion fieud am 1. Who
bus done more than I have for coffins
ami graveyards and prisons and insane
asylums, and the populating of the lost
world? And when this cauldron is
emptied, I'll fill It again, and I'll stir it
again, and it will smoke again, and that
smoke will join another smoke the

Drunkenness is the greatest evil of
this nation, and it takes no logical pro
cess to prove to this audience that a
drunken nation cannot long be a free
nation. L call your attention to the
fact that drunkenness in not subsiding,
certainly that it Is not at a standstill,
but that it is on an onward march, and
it is a double quick. There is more rum
swallowed in this country, and of a
worse kind, than was ever swallowed
since the first distillery began its work
of death. "Where there was one drunken
j-,hoinc there are ten drunken homes.
Wherv there was one drunkard's grave
there are twenty drunkards' graves. It
Is on tho increase. Talk about crooked
whisky by which men mean the whisky
that?-does not pay tax to the govern
mcljtM tell you all strong drink is
crooked. Crooked otard, crooked cog
nao. crooked schnapps crooked beer,
crooked wine, crooked whisky because
it makes a man's path crooked, ami Ms
life crooked, and Ins death crooked, and
his eternity crooked.
If 1 could gather all the armies of the
dead drunkards and have them come to
resurrection, and then add to that host
t all the armies of living drunkards,
6 iivu and ten abreast, and then if I could
.have you mount ahor&e and ride along
that 'lice for review, yon would ride

horse and ride until he fell from ex
haustion, and you would take another
and another, and you would ride along
lvour after hour and day after day.
Great host, in regiments in brigades.
Groat armies, of them. And then if you
had a voice stentorian enough to make
them all hear, and you eould give the
- command, "Forward, march!" their
ur.p would make the earth tremble.
do not care .ivhkh way you look In
I call attention to the fact that there
arc thousands of people born with a
thirst for strong drink a fact too qften
Ignored. Along somo ancestral lines
there runs tho river of temptation.
There arc children whose swaddling
clothes arc torn off the shroud of death.
Many a father has made a will of this
sort: "In the name of God, amen, I be
queath to my children my houses and
lands and real estates; share and share
shall they alike. Hereto I afllx my'
hand and seal in the presence of wit
nesses." And yet perhaps that very
man has made another will that the
people have never read, and that has
not been proved in -the courts. That
will put in writing would read some-.
thine like this: "In th nnmr nt di, I
case and appetite and death, amen, I
bequeath to my children my evil habits,
my tankards shall be theirs, my wine
enp shall be theirs, my destroyed repu
tation shall be theirs. Share and share
xilikc shall they in tho infamy."
Iron, the multitude of those who
have the evil habit born with them
this army is being augmented.. And I
am sorry to say that a great many of
the drug stores are ubetting this evil,
and alcohol is sold under the name of
bitters. It is bitters for this and
and bitters for that, and bitters
for some other thing, and good men de
ceived, not knowing there Is any thral
dom of alcoholism coining from that,
source, are going down, and some day a
man sits with the bottle of black bitters
on his table and the cork flies out, and
nfter it flies a fiend and clutches the
man by his throat and sa's: "Aha! I
have l:en after you for ten years, I
have got you now. Down with you!"
Hitters! Ah! yes. They make a man's
family bitter, and his home bitter, and
his disposition bitter, and his death bit
ter, and his hell bitter.
It seems to mo it Is about time for the
17,000,000 professors of religion in Amer
ica to take sides. It is going to be an
out and out battle with drunkenness
and sobriety, between Heaven and hell,
between God and the devil. Take sides
before there is any further decadence,
Uike sides before your sons are sacri
ficed and the new home of your daugh
ter goes down under the alcoholism of
an embruted husband. Take sides
while your voice, your pen, your prayer,
your voto may have any influence in
arresting the despoliation of this na
tion. If the 17,000,000 professors of re
ligion should take sides on this subject
it would not be very long before the
destiny of this nation would be decided
in the right direction.
Is drunkenness a .state or national
evil? Does it belong to the north, or
does it belong to the south? Does it be
long to the east, or does it belong to
the west? Ah! there is not an Ameri
can river into which its tears have not
fallen and into which its suicides have
not plunged. What ruined that southern
plantation? every field a fortune, the
proprietor and his fumily once the most
affluent supporters of summer watering
places. What threw that Xew England
farm Into decay and turned the roseate
cheeks that bloomed at the foot of the
Green mountains into the pallor of de
spair? What has smitten every street
of every vjllage, town and city of this
cputinent with a moral pestilence?
To prove that this is a national evil
I call up two states in opposite direc
tions Maine and Georgia. Let them
testify in regard to this. State of
Maine says: "It is so great an evil up
here we. have anathematized it as a
state." State of Georgia says: "It is
so great an evil down here that ninety
counties of this state have made the
sale of intoxicating drink a criminal
ity." So tho word comes up from all
parts of the land. Either drunkenness
will be destttwed in this country or the
American government will be de
stroyed. Drunkenness and free institu
tions are coining into a death grapple.
Gather up the money that the work
ing classes have spent for rum during
the last thirty years, and I will build
for every worklnginan a house, and lay
out for him a garden, and clothe his
sons in broadcloth and his daughters in
silks, and stand at hi.-, front door a
prancing span of sorrels or bays, and
secure him a policy of life insurance, so
that the present home may be well
maintained after ho is dead. The most
persistent, most over-powering enemy
of the working clasncs is intoxicating
liquor. It is the anarchist of the centu
ries and has boycotted and is now boy
cotting tho body and mind and soul of
This evil is pouring its vitriolic and
damnable liquors down the throats of
hundred's of thousands of laborers, and
while the ordinary strikes are ruinous
both to employers and employes, I pro
claim a universal strike against strong
drink, which strike, if kept up. will le
the relief of the working classes and
the salvation of the nation.
0, how many are waiting to see if
something can not be done for the stop

drunkards waiting who can not go

lighting against it with enfeebled will
and diseased appetite, conquering, then
surrendering, conquering again and sur
rendering again, and crying: "How
loug, O Lord! how long before these in
famous solicitations shall be gone."
And how ninny mothers are waiting
to sec if this national curse cannot lift!
Oh! is that the boy who had the honest
breath who comes home with breath
vitiated or disguised? What a change!
How quickly those habits of early com
ing home have been exchanged for tho
rattling of the uight-key in the door
long after the last watchman has gone
by and tried to see that everything1 was
closed up for the night! Oh! what a
change for that young man who we had
hoped would do somethiug in merchan
dise, or in nrtlsanship. or in a profession
that would do honor to the family name
long after mother's wrinkled, hands are
folded from the last toil! All that ex
changed for startled look when tho
door-bell rings lest something has hap
pened: and the wish that the scarlet
fever twenty years ago had Kxm fatal,
for then ho would have gone directly to
the bosom of his Saviour. Hut, alas!
poor old soul, she lias lived to experi
ence what Solomon said: "A foolish son
is a heaviness to his mother."
O, what a funeral it will be when that
boy is brought home deadl And how
mother will sit there and say: "Is this
my boy that I used to fondle and that I
walked the floor with in the night when
he was sick? Is this the boy that 1 held
to the baptismal font for baptism? Is
this the boy for whom I toiled until the
blood burst from the tips of my fingers

not one resolution against drunkenness,
which would turn this entire nation
into one bestial Salt Lake City. Reso
lutions against political corruption, but
not one word about drunkenness, which
would rot this nation from scalp to

church of God is the grandest and most
glorious institution on earth. What has
it in solid phalanx accomplished for tho
overthrow of drunkenness? Have its
forces ever been marshalled? Xo, not
in this direction. Xot long ago a great,
ecclesiastical court asv.-mbled in Xew
York, and resolutions arraigning strong
drink were offered, and clergymen with
strong drink 'on the tables and strong
drink In their cellars defeated the reso
lution by threatening speeches. They
could not bear to give up their own lusts.
I tell this audience what many of you
have never thought of, that to-day
not in tho milleuium, but to-day the
church holds the balance of power
in America, and if christian people
would march side by side and shoulder
to shoulder, this eril would soon be
overthrown. Think of 300,000 churches
and Sunday schools in Christendom
marching shoulder to shoulder! How
very short a time it would take them to
put down this evil if the churches of
God, transatlantic and cisatlantic, were
armed on this subject
Young men of America, pass over

In the front of our church in Brook
lyn, a few summers ago, this scene oc
curred: Sabbath morning a young man
was entering for divine worship. A
friend rassing along the street said:
"Joe, come along with me; I am going
down to Coney Island, and we'll have a
gay Sunday." Xo," replied Joe;" I havo
started to go here to church, and I am
going to attend services here." "O,
Joe," his friend said, "you can can go
to church any time. The day is bright,
and wo'll go to Coney Island, and we'll
have a splendid time. The temptation
was too great, and the twain went
to the beach, spent the day in drunken
ness and riot The evening train started
up from Brighton. Tho j'oung men

to pass around from one seat to another

The woes of young housekeepers have
been described so often that it is re

housekeeping has only just now arisen.
One of the army of women who had tc

denned narrowly, as she thought, with
in thr qualifications of a systematic and
skillful housekeeper, had the bright
idea to utilize her one accomplishment
She spends a fortnight or a month in
the newly-founded household superin
tending the servants, adjusting the de
tails, and in fact getting the domestic
machine in running order and teaching
the young housekeeper just what touch

eobody has thought of it before.

Some time ago a Japanese gentleman, j

friends to a genuine Japanese dinner,
of which the menu was as follows:
Uaaasa soap, slices of octopus or devil
fish feelers, roasted porcupine, oranges
preferred in ginger sirup, boiled pome
granates candied lizards' tails etc The
daintiest morsel ol the feast, which is
to the Japanencwhat oyter re to us,'
was a magnificent fish of the turbot
species It was servel on a Jarge dbh
of priceless Kioto porcelain, -garnished

A New York dentist who plugs up
the molars of the 400 says that he has
made $."yG in n day, but only ones. A
lady came torhim who wanted diamonds
put iu a gold filling in her front teeth.
"It was evident" said Dr. Anderson,
"t iUt she had just come into her inher
itance, she seemed so anxious to spend
money. I didn't npprove of the dia
monds, and told her so, but she would
have them, and L humored her to such
an extent that my day's work netted
me S00. What do I make ordinarily1."
Well, I charge S20 uu hour, and I. rare
ly work more than live hours. People
'tlon't care to come tefore ten in the
morning, and late in the afternoon the
light is not good. Ono hundred dollars
a day Is about the extent of what a
dentist can make, aud it is the moot ex
acting f nil the professions. American
Dr. I'ruj-cry Search the history of
the whole world and you will tind no
