Dr. Talmago Characterises Lyin
as the Fifth Plague.
rho rimt Lit, Oridnatrd With Sat an-A

tlie CburchcK Tiro Wars of LIt
In continuance of his course of ser
mons on "The riapues of These Three
Cities" Rev. T. Do Witt Talmac
preached his fifth discourse at Brook
lyn on the Plague of Lies. His text
was Genesis in, 4: "Ye shall not
"wjy die." De Witt Talmage said:
That was a point Wank lie. Satan
told it to Eve to induco her to put her
semi-circle of white, betiutiful trcth in
to n forbidden apricot, or plum, or
peach, or apple. He practically said to
her: "0, Lvc. Just take a bite of this
and you will be oinnltiotcnt and omnis
cient. You .shall be as pods." .lust op
posite was the result. It was the llrst
lie that was ever told iu our world. It
iIencd the gate for all the falshoods
that have ever alighted on this planet.
It introduced a plague that covers all
nations, the Plague of Lies. Far worse
than the plagues of Egypt, for th.-v
were on the banks of the Nile, but this
on the banks of the Hudson, on the
banks of the East river, on the banks of
the Ohio, and the Jhssissipi, and the
Thames, and the IHiinc. and the Tiber,
and on both sides of all the rivers. The
Egyptian plagues lasted only a few
weeks, but for 0,000 years has raged
this plague of lies.
There are a hundred ways of telling
u lie. A man's entire life mav be a
falsehood, w hile with his lip he may
not once directly falsify. There are
those who state what is ositively un
true, but afterward say "may be," oft
ly. These departures from the truth
are called "white lies," but there is
really no Mich thing its a white lie. The
whitest lie that was ever told was as
black as perdition. No inventory of
publio crimes will be sullicicnt tlmt
omits this gigantic anamination There
are men, high in church and state, actu
ally useful, self-denying and honest in
many things, who, upon certain subjects
and in certain spheres, are not at all to
be depended ujion for veracity. Indeed,
there are many men and women who
have their notions of truthfulness so
thoroughly perverted that they do not
know when they are lying. With many
It U a cultivated sin; with some itsecms
a natural infirmity.
1 have known jeople who seemed to
have been born liars. The falsehoods
ol their Jive extended from cradle to
grave. Prevarications, misrepresenta
tion and dishonesty of speech apjnared
in their first utterances, and were as
natural to them as any of their infantile
diseases, and were a sort of moral
croup or spiritual scarlatina.
The air of the city is filled with false
hoods, ''"hey hang pendant from the
chandeliers of our finest residences;
they crowd the shelves of some of our
merehunt princes; they fill the bide
walk from curbstouo to brownstone
facing. They cluster around the me
chanic's hammer and blo.svcn from the
end of the merchant's yardstick and bit
in the doors of the churches. Some call
them "fiction." .Somo style them "fab
rication." You might say thoy were
subterfuge, dbguise, delusion. I shall
chiefly call them w hat my father taught
mo to call them lies.
I shall divide them into agricultural,
mercantile, mechanical, ecclesiastical
and social lies.
1'irst, then, I will sjieak of those that
are more particularly agricultural
There is someth ng in the perjctual
presence of natural objects to make a
man pure. The trees never issue "false
stork." Wheat fields are always honest-
I lye and oats never move out in
the night, not pruning for the place they
have occupied. Corn shocks never
make false assignments. Mountain
brooks are always "current." The
gold on the grain is never counterfeit.
The sunrise never Haunts iu false col
ors. The dew sports only genuine din
uiouds. Taking farmers as a class, I lelieve
they are truthful and fair in dealing
and kind hearted. Hut the regions sur
rounding our cities do not always send
this sort of men to our markets. Day
by da3' there creak through our streets
und about the market houses farm
wagons that have not an honest spoke
iu their wheels or a truthful rivet from
t4gue to tniHtourd During the last few
years there have been times w hen do
mestic economy has foundered on the
farmer's firkin. Neither high taxes,
nor the high price of dry good, nor the
exorbitance of lubor could excuse much
thut the city has witnessed in the le
havior of the yeomanry. llurnl dis
tricts are accustomed to rail at great
rities an given tip to fraud and every
form of unrighteousness; but our cities
do not absorb all the abominations.
Our citizens have learned the imjor
tance of not always trusting to the size
and style of apples in the top of a
farmer's barrel as an indication of
what may le found further down.
Many of our peoplo are accustomed to
watch and see how correctly a bushel
of leets is measured; and there are not
xuany honest milk cans.
Deceptions do not all cluster round
city halls. When our cities sit down
and weep over their sins, all the sur
rounding countries ought to come in
und weep with them. There is often
hostility on the part of producers against
traders, as though the man who raises
the corn was necessarily more honor
able than the grain dealer w ho pours it
int.) his mammoth bin. There ought
to le no such hostility, yet producers
often think it no wrong to snatch from
the trader; and they say to the bargain
maker, "You get your money easy."
1 they get it easy? Let those who in
the quiet field and barn get their living
exchange places with tho-e who stand
to-day amid the excitements of commer
cial life and see if they find it so very
easr. While the farmer goes to sleep
with the assurance that his corn and
barley ivill bo growing all the night,
moment by moment adding to his reve
nue, the merchant tries to go to sleep,
conscious that that moment his cargo
mav bo broken on the rocks or damaged
by the wave that sweeps clear across I It is especially so in regard to false-
tho hurricane deck; or that reckless
speculators may that very hour be plot
ting some monetary revolution, or the
burglars be prying open his safe, or his
debtors fleeing the town, or his landlord
raising the rent, or the fires kindling on
the block that contains all his estates.
Easy I Ib it? God help the merchants!
It is hard to have the palms of the
hands blistered with outdoor work, but
a more dreadful process when, through
mercantile anxieties, the brain is con
sumed! In the nest place we notice mercan
tile lies, thoe before the counter and
behind the counter. I will not attempt
to specify the "forms of commercial
falsehood. There are merchants who
excuse themselves for deviation from
truthfulness because of what they call
commercial custom. In other words,
the multiplication and universality of a
sin turns it into a virtue. There have
been large fortunes gathered where
there was not one drop of unrequited
til in the wine; not one spark of bad
toinjier flashing from the bronze
bracket; not one . drop of needle
woman's heart bkKxi in the
crimson plush; while there are
other great establishments in which
there Is not one doorknob, not one
brick, not one trinket, not one thread
of lace, but has upon it the mark of
dishonor. What wonder it some day a
hand of toil that had been wrung and
worn out and blistered nntil the skin
came off should Iks placed against the
elegant wall paper, leaving its mark of
blood four fingers and a thumb; or
that, some day, walking the halls, tnerc
should be a voice accosting the occu
pant, saying, "Six cents for making a
shirt;" and, flying the room, another
voice should say, "Twelve cents for an
army blanket," and the man should try
to sleep at night, but ever and anon be
aroused, until getting up on one elbow,
he should shriek out, "Who's there?"
One Sabbath night, in the vestibule
of my church after service, a woman
fell in convulsions. The doctor said
she needed medicine not so much as
something to cat. As she began to re
vive in her delirium, she said gaspinglv:
"Eight cents! Eight cents! I wish' I
could get it done; I am so tired! I wish
I could get some sleep, but I must get
it done! Eight cents! Eight cents!
We found afterward she was making
garments for eight cent apiece, and
that she could make but three of them
in a day! Three times eightnrc twenty
four! Hear it, men and women who
have comfortable homes!
Some of Use worst villains of the city
are the employers of these women.
They Iwat them down to the last penny,
and try to cheat them out of that. The
woman must deposit a dollar or two be
fore she gets the garments to work on.
When the work is done it is sharply in
spected, the most insignificant flaws
picked out, and the wages refused and
sometimes the dollar deposited not
A merchant can, to the last item, be
thoroughly honest- There is never any
need of falsehood Yet how many will,
day by day, hour by hour, utter what
they know to be w rong? You say that
you arc selling at less than cost If so,
then it is right to say it. Hut did that
cost you less than what you ask fur it?
If not, then you have falsified.
You may consider it insignificant be
cause relating to an insignificant pur
chase. You would despise the man
who would falsify in regard to some
great matter in which the city or whole
country was concerned, but this is only
a 1kx of buttons or a row of pins or a
case of needles. Ho not deceived. The
article purchased may be so small you
can put it in your vest pocket, but the
sin was bigger than the pyramids and
the echo of the dishonor will reverber
ate through all the mountains of eter
nity. You throw on your table some speci
mens of handkerchiefs. Your customer
asks: "Is that all silk? no cotton in it?"
You answer: "It is all silk." Was it all
silk? If so, all right. Hut was it part
ly cotton? Then you have falsified.
Moreover, you lost by the falsehood.
The customer, though ho may live at
Lynn, or Doylestown, or 1'oughkeepsic,
will find out that you have defrauded
him and next spring when he again
comes shopping ho will look at your
sign and say: "I will not try there.
That is the place where I got that hand
kerchief." So that by one dishonest
bargain you picked your own pocket
and insulted the Almighty.
In the next place I notice mechanical
lies. There is no class of men w ho ad
minister more to tho welfare of the city
than artisans. To their hand we
must look for the building that shelters
us, the garments that clothe us, for the
car that carries us. They wield a wide
spread influence. There is much deris
ion of what is called "muscular Christi
anity," but in the latter day of the
world's prosperity I think that the
Christian will Ikj muscular. We have
tho right to expect of those stalwart
men of toil the highest possible integ-rity-.
Many of them answer our high
est expectations and stand at the front
of religious and philanthropic enter
prises. Hat this elass, like the others that 1
have named, has in it those who lack in
tho element of veracity. They can not
nil be trusted. In times when the de
mand for lalor is great it is impossible
to meet the demands of the public or
do work with that promptness or per
fection that would at other times be
possible. Hut there are mechanics
whose word cannot be trusted at any
time. No man has a right to promise
more work than he can do. There are
mechanics who say that they will come
on Monday, but they do not come until
Wednesday. You put work in their
hands that they tell you shall le com
pleted in ten days, but it is thirty.
There have Invn houses built of which
it might be said that every nail driven,
every foot of plastering put on, every
yard of pipe laid, every shingle ham
mered, everv brick mortared, could tell
of falsehood connected therewith.
There are men attempting to do ten or
fifteen pieces of work who have not the
time or strength to do more than five or
six pieces; but by promises never ful
filled keep all the undertakngs witihin
their own grap. This is what they
call "nursing" the job.
How much wronc to his soul and in
sult to God a mechanic would save, if he
promised only so much as he expected
to le able to do. Society has no right
to ask of you impossibilities. You can
not always calculate correctly, and you
may fail because you cannot get the
help that you anticipate. Hut now 1
am speaking of the willful making of
promises that you know you cannot
keep. Did you say that that shoe should
be mended, that coat repaired, those
bricks laid, that harness sewed, that
door grained, that spout fixed, or that
window glazed by Saturday, knowing
that you would neither be able to do it
yourself nor get any one else to do it?
Then before God and man you are a liar.
I next notice ecclesiastical lies; that
is. falsehoods told for the purpose of
advancing churches and sects, or for
the purpose of depleting them. It is
almost impossible for one denomination
of Christians without prejudice or mis
representation, to state the sentiment
of an opposing sect. If a man hxste

lYesbvtcrians believe, he will tell tou

churches will sometimes make misstate

to dress themselves. They say, "tho
furnace has just gone out," when In
truth they have had no fire in it aU
winter. They apologize for the un
usual barrenness of their table when
they never live any better. They decry
their most luxurious entertainments to
win a shower of approval.
They ajologize for their appearance,
as though it were unusual, when always
at home they look just bo. They would
make you believe that some nice sketch
on the wall was tho work of a master
painter. "It was an heirloom, and once
hung on the walls of the castle; and a
duke gave it to their grandfather."
When the f-ct -is, the painting was
made by a man "down cast," and
baked, was to make it look old, and
sold with others for S10 a dozen. Peo
ple who will lie about nothing else vill
lie alwut a picture. On a smalt income
we must make the world believe that
wo arc affluent and our life becomes a
cheat, a counterfeit and a sham.
