The Lord's Help Ever Beady to the Need
The Strangles of Mem In Their
Joaraey Threvgh Life Comfort
la All BeresTeameat.
In a late sermon at Brooklyn Kct. T.
De Wilt Talmao took" for his subject:
"The Burden Bearer," and hU text was
from Psalms It. 22: 'Cast thy burden,
upon the Lord, and He shall sustain
thee." He said:
David was here taking his own medi
cine. If anylody had on him heav,
weifhts, David had them, and yet out
of his own experience he advised yon
and mc as to the Txjst way of getting
rid of burdens. This is a world of bur
den bearing. Coming into the house
of prayer there may be no sign of sad
ness and sorrow, but where is the mas
who has not a conflict? Where is the
soul that has not a struggle? And there
is not a day in all the year when my
text is not gloriously appropriate and
there is never an audience assembled
on the planet where the text docs not
fit the occasion: "Cast thy burden
upon the liord and He shall sus
tain thee." In the far cast wells
of water are so infrequent that when a
man owns a well he lias a property of
very great value, and sometimes bat
tles have been fought for the possession
of one well of .water; but there is one
well that every roa"n owns, a deep well,
r. perennial well, a well of tears. If a has nut a. harden on this shoulder
h has a burden on the other shoulder.
The day I left home to look after my
self and for myself, in the wagon my
father sat driving, and he said that day
something which has kept with mc all
my life: "DoWitt, it is alwa3s safe to
trust (.oil. I have many a time come
to a crisis of difficulty. You may know
that, having been sick for fifteen years,
it was no easy thing for mo to support
a family; but always God came to the
"I remember the time," he said,
"when 1 didn't know what to do, and I
saw a man on horsoback riding up the
farm lane, and he announced to mc that
I had been nominated for the most
lucrative oflice in the gift of the people
of the county; and to that oflice 1 was
elected, and God in that way met all
my wants, and I tell you it is always
safe to trust Him." O, my friends,
what we want is a practical religion.
The religion people have- is so high up
you caunot reach it.
I had a friend who entered the life of
an evangelist. He gave up a lucrative
business in Chicago, and he and his wife
finally came to severe want He told
mc that in the morning at prayers he
said: "0, Jxml, thou knowest we
have not a mouthful of food in
the house! Help me, help us!"
And he started out on the street, and
a gentleman met him and said: "I have
lccn thinking of yon for a good while.
You know I am a flour merchant. If
you won't le offended, I should like to
.send you a barrel of flour." My friend
cast his burden on the Lord and the
liord sustaiucd him.
In the straits of Magellan I have been
told there is a place where, whichever
way a ship captain puts his ship, he
finds the wind against him, and there
arc men who all their lives have lcen
running in the teeth of the wind and
which way to turn they do not know.
Some of them may bo here this morn
ing, and I address them face to face,
not perfunctorily, but as one brother
talks to another brother: "Cast thy
burden upon the Lord and He shall
sustain thee."
Kirst There nro a great many men
who have business burdens. When we
sec a man hurried and perplexed and
- annoyed in business life, we are apt to
sa3: lie ougni not to nave aixempieu
to carry so much." Ah! that man may
not be to blame at all. When a man
plants a business he docs not know
what will be its outgrowths, what will
le it roots, what will Iks its branches.
There is many a man with keen fore
sight and large business faculty who
has been thing into the dust by unfore
seen circumstances springing upon him
from ambush. When to buy, when to
sell, when to trust and to what amount
of credit, what will be the effect of this
new invention of machinery, what will
be the effect of that loss of crop, and a
thousand other questions perplex busi
ness men until the hair is silvered and
deep wrinkles arc plowed in the cheek;
and the stocks jo up by the mountains
and go down by the valleys, anil they
are at their wits' ends, and struggle
like drunken men.
There never has been a timo when
there have leen such rivalries in busi
ness as now. It is hardware against
hardware, liooks against books chand
lery against chandlery, imported article
against imported article. A thousand
stores in combat with another thousand
stores. .Never such advantage of light,
never such a variety of assortment,
never so much splendor of show win
dow, never so much adroitness of sales
men, never so much acutenoss of adver
tising, and amid all these severities of
rivalry ii business how many men
break down! O, the burden on the
shoulder! O, the burden on the heart!
You hear that it is avarice which drives
thee men of business through the
street, and that is the commonly ac
cepted idea. I do not believe a word of
iL The vast multitude of these busi
ness men are toiling on for others.
To educate their children, to put
the wing of protection over their house
holds to have something left so when
thev pass out of this life their wives
and children will not have to go to the
poor house that is the way I translate
this energy in the street and store the
vast majority of that energy. Grip,
Gouge !fc Co. do not do all the business.
Some of us remember when the Cen
tral America was coming home from
California it was wrecked. President
Arthur's father-in-law was the heroic
captain of that ship, and went clown
with most of the passengers. Some of
-them got off into the boats but there
was a young man returning from Cali
fornia -.yho had a- bag of gold in his
hand, and as the last boat shoved off
from the ship that was. to go down, that
man shouted to a comrade in the boat:
"Here, John, catch this gold; there are
S3.000; take it home to ray mother, it
will make her comfortablo in her last
days." Grip, Gouge & Co. do not do all
the business of the world.
Ah'my friend, do you say that God
does not care any thing about your
worldly business? I tell you God
krows more about it than you da He
knows all your perplexities; He knows
what mortgagee is abont to foreclose;
He knows what note you can not pay ;
He knows what unsalable goods you
have on your shelves; He knows all
your trials from the day you took hold
of the first yardstick, down to the sale
V the last yard of ribbon, and the God
-ho helped David to be king, and who
helped Daniel to be prime minister, and
who helped Havelock to be a soldier
will help you to discharge all jour
duties. He is going to see you through.
When loss comes and you find your
- property going, just take this -Book and
put it down by your ledger, and read of
the eternal possessions that will come
to you through our Lord Jesus Christ.
And when your business partner be
trays you, and your friends tarn against
you, just take the insulting letter, put
il down on the table, put your Bible be-
lUexthc insulting letter, and- then read
of the friendship of Him who "sticketh
closer than a brother.' '
A young accountant in New York city
got his accounts entangled. He knew
he was honest, -and jet he could not
make his accounts cone out right, and
he toiled at them day aad night antil he
was nearly frenzied. It seemed by
those books that something had been
misappropriated, and he knew before
God he was honest The last day came.
He knew if he could not that day make
his accounts come out right, he would
go into disgrace and go into banishment
from the business establishment He
went over there rery early, before there
was,anybody n the place, and he knelt
downhat the desk and said: "Q, Lord,
Thou knowest I have tried to Imj honest,
but I "cannot make these things come
out right! Help me to-day help me
this morning!" The young man arose
and' hardly knowing why lie did so,
opened a book that lay on the desk and
there was a leaf containing a line of
figures which explained every thing. In
other words, he cast his burden upon
the, Lord and the -Lord sustained him.
Young man, do you hear that?
0, yes, God has a sympathy with anj'
body,that is in any kind of toil! He
knows how heavy is the hod of bricks
that the workman carries up the ladder
of the wall; He hears the pickax of
the miner down in the coal shaft; He
knows how the tempest strikes the
sailor at masthead; He sees the factory
girl among the spindles and knows how
her arms ache; He sees the sewing
woman in the fourth-story and knows
how few pence she gets for making a
garment, and louder than all the din
and roar of the city comes the voice of
a sympathetic God: "Cast thy burdens
upon the Lord and He will sustain
Second There are a great many who
have a weight of persecution and abuse
upon them. Sometimes society gets a
grudge against a man. All his motives
arc misinterpreted and his good deeds
arc depreciated. With more virtue
than some of the honored and ap
plauded, he runs only against raillery
and sharp criticism. When a man be
gins to go down, he has not only the
force of natural gravitation, but one
hundred hands to help him in the pre
cipitation. Men are persecuted for
their virtues and their successes Gcr
manicus said he had just as many bitter
antagonists as he had adornments. The
character sometimes is so lustrous that
the weak eyes of envy and jealousy
can not bear to look at it It was their
integrity that put Joseph in the pit
and Daniel in the den, and Shadrach in
the tire, and sent John the evangelist
to desolate 1'atmos, and Calvin to the
castle of persecution and John Huss to
the stake, and Kbrah after Moses and
Saul after David, and Herod after
Christ Be sure if you have anything
to do for church or state, and 3011 at
tempt it with all your soul, the light
ning will strike you.
The world always has had a cross be
tween two thieves for the one who
comes to save it High and holy enter
prise has always been followed by
abuse. The most sublime traged3
of self sacrifice has come to burlesque.
The graceful gait of virtue is always
followed by grimace and travesty. The
sweetest strain of poetry ever written
has come to riciculous parody, and as
long as there are virtue and righteous
ness in tho world there will bo some
thing for iniquity to grin at All along
the line of the ages, and in all lands
the cry has been: "Not this man, but
Harabbas. Now, Harahbas was a rob
ber." And what makes the persecu
tions of life worse, is that they come
from people whom 3'ou have
helped, from thoso to whom
3011 have loaned monc3' or have
started in business, or whom
you rescued in some great crisis I
think it has been the history of nil our
lives the most acrimonious assault has
come from those whom we have bene
fitted, whom we have helped, and that
makes it all the harder to bear. A man
is in danger of being cynical.
A clergyman of the Universallst
church went into a neighborhood for
the establishment of a church of his
denomination and he was anxious to
find some on; of that denomination and
he was pointed to a certain house and
went there. He sa d to the man of the
house: "1 understand that you are
a Universalist- I want 3011 to
help me in the enterprise." "Well,"
said the man, "I am a Universal ist, but
I have a peculiar kind of Univcrsalism."
"What is that?" asked the minister.
"Well," replied the other, "I have been
out in the world and I hare been cheated
and slandered and outraged and
abused until I believe in universal dam
nation!" The great danger is that men
will Iwcomc cynical and given to be
lieve, as David was tempted to say, that
all men are liars O, ny friends do
not let that be tho effect upon your
souls! If you can not endure a little
persecution, how do you think our
fathers endured great persecution?
Motley, in his Dutch Republic, tells us
of Egmout, the martyr, who, condemned
to bo beheaded, unfastened his collar
on the way to the scaffold; anil when
they asked him why he did that, he
said: "So they will not be detained 111
their work; 1 want to le ready. O,
how little we have to endure compared
with those who have gone lcforc us!
Now, if 3011 have come across ill
treatment, let mc tell you you arc in
excellent companj- Christ and Luther
and Galileo and Columbus and John
Jay and Josiah Quincy and thousands
of men and women, the best spirits of
earth and Heaven. Budge not one inch
though all hell wreak upon you its ven
geance, and you be made a target
for devils to shoot at. Do you not
think that Christ knows all about per
secution? Was He hot hissed at? Was
He not struck on the cheek? Was He
not pursued all the days of His life?
Did they not expectorate upon Him?
Or, to put it in Bible language: "They
spit at Him." And can not He under
stand what persecution is? "Cast Un
burden upon the Lord and He shall sus
tain thee."
Third There are others who carry
great burdens of physical ailments
When sudden sickness has come and
fierce choleras and malignant fevers
take the castles of life by storm, we ap
peal to God; but in these chronic ail
ments which wear out the strength day
after day and week after week and
3-ear after year, how little resorting to
God for solace!
Then people depend upon their tonics
and their plasters and their cordials
rather than upon heavenly stimulants.
Oh, how few people there arc complete
ly well! Some of you, by dint of perse
verance and care, have kept living to
this time; but how yon have had'to war
against physical ailments! Antcdelu
vians without a medical college and
infirmary and apothecary shop, multi
plied their years by hundreds; but he
who has gone through the gauntlet of
disease in our time, and has come to
seventy years of age, is a hero worthy
of a palm.
The world seems to be a great hospi
tal, and you run against rheumatisms
and consumptions and scrofulas and
neuralgias and scores of old diseases
baptized by new nomenclature. O, how
heavy a burden sickness is It takes
the color out of the sky and the sparkle
ont of the wave and the sweetness oct
of the fruit and the luster out of the
night. When the limbs ache, vt hen the
respiration is painful, when the month
is hot, when the ear roars with na
J healthy obstructions, how hard it is to
be patient and cheerfal wmi
"Cast tby harden upon the Lord.'
yoar head ache? His wore the thorm.
Do your feet hurt? Hie were crashed of
the spikes Isyoarsidepeinfal? His was
struck by the spear. Do yaa feel like
giving way under the burden? Hie
weakness gave way aader a cross.
While yon are ia every possible way to
try to restore your rigor, yoa are to
remember that more soothing thaa
anodyne and more vitalizing thaa any
stimulant and more strengthening thaa
any tonic is the prescription of the
text: "Cast thy burden upon the Lord
and He will sustain thee." We hear a
great deal of talk now about faith cure
and some people say it cannot be done
and it Is a failure. I do not know bat
she chief advance of the church is to be
in that direction. Marvelous things
como to me day b3 day which makes
mc think that if the age of miracles is
past it Is because the faith of miracles
Is past
A prominent merchant of New York
said to a member of my family: "My
mother wants her case mentioned to
M r. Talmage." This was the case. He
said: "My mother had a dreadful ab
cess, from which she hail suffered un
told agonies All surgery had been
exhausted upon her, and worse and
worse she grew until wc called in a few
Christian friends and proceeded to pray
about it We commended her case to
God and the aliccss began immediately
to be cured. She is entirely well now,
and without any surgery." So that
case has come to mc, and there are a
score of other rases coming to our cars
from all parts of the earth. O, ye who
are sick, go to Christ! O, ye who are
worn out with agonies of body, "cast
thy burdens upon the Lord and He
will sustain thee."
Another burden some have to carry
is the burden of bereavement Ah'
these are the troubles that wear us ont.
If we lose our property, by additional
industry, perhaps wo may bring back
the estranged fortune; if we lose our
good name, perhaps by reformation of
morals wc may achieve again a repu ta
tlon for intcgrit3 but who will bring
back the dear departed? Alas! me for
these empty cradles and these trunks
of childish toys that will never be used
again. Alas! me for the empty chair
and the silence in the halls that will
never echo again to those familiar foot
steps Alas! for the cry of widow
hood and orphanage. What bitter
Marahs in the wilderness, what
cities of the dead, what long
black shadow from the wing of
death, what eyes sunken with grief,
what hands tremulous with bereave
ment, what instruments of music shut
now because there are no fingers to
play on them! Is there no relief for
such souls? Ay, let tho soul ride into
the harbor of my text.
Tho soul that on Jesus hnth leaned for re-
I will not, I will" not detcrt to Its foes;
That soul, though all bell shall endeavor to
I'll never, no nrvcr, no novcr .un.tko.
Now, the grave is brighter than the
ancient tomb where the lights were
perpetually kept burning. The scarred
feet of Him who was "the resurrection
and the life" are on the broken grave
hillock, while the voices of angels ring
down the sky at the coronation of an
other soul come home to glory.
Then there are many who carry the
burden of Ah, wc all carry it un
til in the appointed way that burden is
lifted. We need no Bible to prove that
the wholo nice is ruined What a
spectacle it would be if we could tear
off the mask of human defilement, or
bent a drum that would bring up the
whole army of the world's transgres
sions the deception, the fraud and the
rapine and the murder and crime of all
the centuries! Ay, if I could sound the
trumpet of the resurrection in the soul
of the men in this audience, and
all the dead sins of the
past should come up, we could not en
dure the sight- Sin, grim and dire, has
put its clutch upon the immortal soul,
and that clutch will never relax unless
it be under the heel of Him who came
to destroy the works of the devil.
O, to have a mountain of sin on the
soul! Is there no way to have the bur
den moved? O. yes "Cast thy burden
upon the 1-ord." The sinless One came
to take the consequence . of our sin!
And I know He is in earnest How do
I know it? By the streaming temples
and streaming hands as He says, "Como
unto Me all 30 who are weary and
heavy laden and I will give you rest."
Why will prodigals live on swines
husks when the robe and the ring and
the father's welcome are ready? Why
go wandering over the great Sahara
desert of your sin when 3011 are invited
to tho garden of God, the trees of life
and the fountains of living water?

The hand of time
deals lightly with a woman in
perfect health. But all func

orders rxrculiar to women
leave their mark. You needn't

It is a powerful, rcstoratici2IrTaii,iir mmm'

strcngtn to tne wnoic system1
in general, and to the uterine
organs and appendnges m par
ticular. It keeps years from
your face and figure but adds
years to your life. Its jfuar
anUcd to giyc satLsiaction in
every case. If it doesn't,
your money is relumed.
