In a recent sermon at Brooklvn Iter.
T. DeWitt Talmage showed his adher
ence to the old-fashioned Gospel and
his firmness in orthodoxy. His subject

text, Isaiah, liil C: "AH tvc like sheep
have gone astray; and the Lord hath

Within ninety years at the longest all
who hear or read this sermon will be in
eternity. During the next fifty years
you will nearly all be gone. The next
ten years will cut a wide swath among
the people. The year 18I1 will to some
Ik? the finality. Such considerations
make this occasion absorbing and mo
incntuous. The first half of ray text is
an indictment: "All we like sheep have
gone astray." Some one says: "Can
you not drop the first word? That is
too genera; that sweeps too great a
circle." Some man rises in the audi
ence and he looks over on the opposite
side of the house and he says: "There
is a blasphemer, and I understand how
he has Rone astray. And there, in an
other part of the house, is a defraudcr,
and he has gone astray. And thcro is
an impure person, and he has gone
:utray." Sit down, my brother, and
look at home. My text takes us all in.
It starts behind the pulpit, sweeps the
circuit of the room and comes back to
the point where it started, when it says:
"All we like sheep have gone astray."
Sheep get astray in two ways; either
by trying to get into another pasture or
from being scared by the dogs. In the
former way some of us got astray. We
thought the religion of .lesus Christ
short commons. We thought there was
etter pasturage somewhere else. We
thought if wo could only lie down on
the banks of distant streams or under
great oaks on the other side of some
hill we might Ik; better fed. We wanted
other pasturage than that which God
through .lesus Christ gave our soul and
we wandered on and wc were lost. We
wanted bread and we found garbage.
Tim further we wandered, instead of
(hiding rich pasturage, we found blasted
health and sharper rocks and more
stinging nettles. No pasture. How
was it in the worldly groups when you
.ostyour child? Did they come around
and console yon very much? Did
not the plain Christian man who
came into your house and sat up
with 3'our darling child give yon
more comfort than all worldly associa
tions? Did all the convivial songs yon
ever heard comfort you in that day of
berravenn'iit so much as the song they
sang to you, perhaps the very song that
was sung by your little child the last
Sabbath of her life?
There is a h:itiy laud, far, far nu-ny,
Win-re Melius immortal mlKii, lirllit, lirlht
Did your business associates in that
day of darkness and troublo give you
any especial condolence? Itusiness ex
asperated you, business wore you out,
business loft 'you limp as a rag, busi
ness made you mud. You got dollars,
but you got no peace. God have mercy
on the man who has nothing but busi
ness to comfort him. The world af
forded you no luxuriant pasturage. A
famous English actor stood on the
stage impersonating, and thunders of
applause came down from the galleries,
and many thought it was the proudest
moment of all his life; but there was a
man asleep just In front of him and the
fact that that man was indifferent and
somnolent spoiled all the occasion for
him, and ho cried: "Wake up, wake
So one little annoyance in life has
been more pervading to your mind than
all the brilliant congratulations and
successes. l'oor pasturage for your
soul you found in this world. The world
has cheated 3011, the world has belied
you, the world has misinterpreted you,
the world has persecuted you. It never
comforted you. O! this world is a good
rack from which a horse limy pick his
hay: it is a good trough from which the
swine may crunch their mess, but it
gives but little food to a soul blood
bought and immortal. What is a soul?
It is a hope high as the throne of God.
What is a man? Yon say: "It is only
a man." It is only a man gone over
iKiard in sin. It is only a man gone
overboard in business life. What is a
man? The battle ground of three
worlds, with his hands taking hold of
destinies of light or darkness. A man!
No line can measure him. No limit
can bound him. The archangle before
the throne cannot outlive him. The
stars shall die, but he shall wntch their
extinguishment The world will burn,
but he will gaze on the conflagration.
Endless ages will march n. he will
watch the procession. A man! The
masterpiece of God Almighty. Yetyou
say: "It is only a man." Can a nature
like that bo fed on husks of the wilder
ness? $ul.tjuitlnl comfort will not crow
On nnture's barren soil:
AH wo can bont till ChrNt wo know
Is vanity and toll.
Some of you got astray by looking
for letter pasturage; others by being
scared of the dogs. The hound gets
over into the pasture field. The poor
things lly in every direction. In a few
moments they are torn of the hedges
and they are plashed of the ditch, and
the lost sheep never gets home unless
the farmer goes after it There is
nothing so thoroughly lost as a lost
sheep. It may have been in 1S57, dur
ing the financial panic or during the
financial stress in the fall of 1S7S, whet,
vou got astray. You almost became an
atheist You said: "Where is God,
that honest men go down and thieves
prosper?" You were dogged of credit
ors, you were dogged of the banks, yon
were dogged of worldly disaster, and
some of you went into misanthropy,
and some "of vou took to strong drink,
and others of you fled out of Christian
association, and you got astray.
0! man, that was the lat time when
vou ought to have forsaken God. Stand
in" amid the foundering of your earthly
fortunes, how could you get along with
out a God to comfort you, and a God to
deliver you, and a God to help you, and
a God to save you? You tell me you
h-ive beeu through enough business
troubles almost to kill you. 1 know it
1 caunot understand how the boat could
live one hour in that chopped sea. But
I do not know by what process you got
astray: some in one way and some in
another, and if you could really see the
position some of you occupy before
Cod this morning, your soul would
burst in an agony of tears and you
would pelt the heavens with the cry:
"God have mercy!" Sinai's batteries
have been unlimbered above your souls
and at times you have heard it thunder:
"The wages of sin is death." "All
have sinned and come short of the glory
of God." "By one man sin entered in
to the world, and death by sin; and so
death passed upon all men, for that all
have sinned." "The soul that sinneth,
it shall die."
But the last part of my text opens a
door wide enough to let us all out and
to let all heaven in. Sound it on the
organ with all the stops out Thrum
it "on the harps with all the strings
atune. With all the melody possible
let the heavens sountj. it to the earth
and let the earth tell it to the heavens, I
m. .. ijura nam lam on Jilm the in
iquity of us alL" I am glad that the
prophet did not stop to explain whom
he meant by "HitH." Him of the
manger, Him of the bloody sweat, Him
of the resurrection throne. Him of the
crucifixion agony. "On Him the Lord
hath laid the iniquity of us all."
If you and I, walking down the street,
both hale, hearty and well, I ask you
to carry me, you say, and say rightly:
"Walk on your own feet!" But sup
pose you and I were in a regiment and
I was wounded in the battle and I fell
unconscious at your feet with gunshot
fractures and dislocations, what would
3'ou do? You would call to your com
rades, saying: "Come and help; this
man is helpless; bring the ambulance;
let us take him to the hospital," and I
would be a dead lift in your arms, and
you would lift me from the ground
where I had fallen and put me in the
ambulance and take me to the hospital
and have all kindness shown me.
Would there be anything mean in your
doing that? Would there be anything
bemeaning in my accepting that kind
ness? Oh.no. Yon would be mean not
to do it That is what Christ does. If
we could pay our debts then it would
be better to go up and pay them, say
ing: "Here, Lord, here is my obligation;
here are the means with which I mean
to settle that obligation; now give me a
receipt; cross it all out" The debt is
paid. But the fact Is wc have fallen in the
battle, we have gone down under the
hot fire of our transgressions, we have
been wounded by the sabers of sin, we
are helpless, wc are undone." Christ
comes. The loud clang heard in the
sky on that Christinas night was only
the bell, the resounding bell of the am
bulance. Clear the way for the Son of
God. He comes down to hind up the
wounds and to scatter the darkness,
and to save the lost Christ comes and
looks down in j'our face and says: "I
have come through all the lacerations
of these days and through all the tem
pests of these nights; I have come to
bear your burdens and to pardon your
sins and to pay your debts. Put them
on my shoulder; put them on my heart"
"On Him the Lord hath laid the iniquity
of us all.
Sin has almost pestered the life out
of some of you. At times it has made
you cross and unreasonable, and it has
spoiled the brightness of your days and
the peace of your nights. There are
men who have been riddled of sin. The
world gives them no solace. Gossamer
and volatile the world, while eternity,
as they look forward to it, is black as
midnight They writhe under the stings
of a conscience which proposes to give
no rest here and no rest hereafter; and
yet they do not repent, they do not
pray, they do not weep. They do not
realize that just the position they occu
py is the position occupied by scores,
hundreds and thousands of men who
never found anj hope.
If this meeting should be thrown
open and the people who are here could
give their testimony, what thrilling ex
periences we should hear on nil sides!
There is a man in the gallery who
would say: "I had brilliant surround
ings, I had the best education that one
of the best collegiate institutions of
this country could give, and I observed
all the moralities of life, and I was self
righteous, and I thought I was all right
before God as I am all right before
men; but the Holy Spirit came to me
one day and said: You arc a sinner;'
the Holy Spirit persuaded me of the
fact While I had escaped the sins
against the law of the land, I had really
committed the worst sin a man ever
commits tho driving back of the Son
of God from my heart's affections. And
I saw that my hands were red with the
blood of the Son of God, anil I began to
pray and peace came to my heart, and
I know by experience that what you
say this morning is true. 'On Him the
Lord hath laid the iniquity of us all.'"
Yonder is a man who would sny: "I
was the worst drunkard in New York;
I went from bad to worse: I destroyed
myself; I destroyed my home; my chil
dren cowered when I entered tho house;
when they put up their lips to be kissed
I struck them; my wife protested
against the maltreatment, I kicked her
into the street I know all the bruises
and all the terrors of a drunkard's woe.
I went on further and further from
God until one day I got a letter saying:
" 'My dear husband: I have tried
every way. done everything, and
prayed earnestly and fervently for
3'our reformation, but it seems of no
avail. Since our little Henry died, with
the exeeptionoftthose few happy weeks
when you remained sober, my life has
been one of sorrow. Many of the nights
I have sat by tho window with my
face bathed in tears watching for
your coming. I am broken hearted,
I am sick. Mother and father have
lecn hero frequently and begged
me to come home, but my love for you
and mj hope for brighter days have al
ways made me refuse them. That hope
seems now beyond realization, and I
have returned to them. It is hard, and
1 battled long before doing it May
God bless and preserve you, and take
from you that accursed appetite and
hasten tho day when we shall be again
living happily together. This will Ikj
my daily prayer, knowing that he has
said: "Come unto me all ye that labor
and arc heavy laden, and 1 will give you
rest" From your loving wife,
"And so I wandered on and wandered
on," says that man, "until one night I
passed a Methodist meeting house, and
I said to myself: 'I'll go in and see
what they are doing,' and I got to the
door, and they were singing:
All may coin-, whoever will.

"And I dropped right there where I
was and I said, 'God have mercy,' and
he had mercy on me. My home is re
stored, my wife sings all day long dur

way to greet me home, and my house
hold is a little heaven. I will tell you
what did all this for me. It was the
truth that this day you proclaim: "On

Yonder is a woman who would say:
"I wanderedoff from my father's house:
I heard the storm that pelts on a lost
soul; my feet were blistered on the hot
rocks. I went on and on. thinking that
no one cared for my soul, when one
night Jesusvinet me and he said: 'Poor
thing, go home! your father is waiting
for you, your mother is waiting for you.
Go home, poor thing,' and sir, I was too
weak to pray, and I was too weak to
repent, but I just cried out, I sobbed
out my sins and my sorrows on the
shoulders of Him of whom it is said.
'The Lord hath laid on Him the iniquity
of us alt".
There is young man who would say:
"I had Christian bringing up: I came
from the country to city life; I started
well; I had a good position, a good com
mercial position, but one night at the
theater 1 met some young men who did
me no good. They dragged me all
through the sewexie iniquity and 1
lost my morals and) lost my position
and I was shabby sail Wretched. 1 was
going down the street, thinking that no
one cared for me, when a young man
tapped me on the shoulder and said:
"George, come with me and I will do
you good.' I looked at him to see
whether he was joking or not I saw he
was in earnest and I said: 'Whatdoyon
mean, sir? 'Well,' he replied, 'I mean if
you will come to the meeting t

0! my brother, without stopping to
look as to whether your band trembles
or not, is bloated with sin or not, put it
in my hand, let me give you one warm,
brotherly Christian grip, and invite yoa
right up to the heart to the compas
sion, to the sympathy, to the pardoa of
Him on whom the Lord had laid the
iniquity of us all. Throw away your
sins. Carry them no longer. I pro
claim emancipation this morning to all
who are bound, pardon for ali sin, aad
eternal life for all the dead.

"weary with the world's woe." I say,
"Whence comest thou?" He says, "I

I say, "Why comest Thou here?" "O!"
He says, "I came here to carry all the
sins and sorrows of the people." And
He kneels and He 6avs: "Put on My
shoulders all the torrows and all

first, I take them and put them on the
shoulders of the Son of God. I say:
"Canst Thou bear any more, 0 Christ?"
He says: "Yea, more." And I gather

A clergyman said in his pulpit ono
Sabbath: "Before next Saturday night
one of this audienco will have passed
out of life." A gentlemen said to an
other seated next to him: "I don't Imj
lieve it; I mean to watch and if it
doesn't come true by next Saturday
night I shall tell that clergyman his
falsehood." The man seated next to
him said: "Perhaps it will be your

To-day the Saviour calls. All may
come. God never pushes a man off.
God never destroys anybody. The man
jumps off. It is suicide soul suicide
if the man perishes, for the invitation
is: "Whosoever will, let him come."
Whosoever, whosoever, whosoever! In
this day of mnrciful visitation, while
many arc coming into the kingdom of
God, join the procession heavenward.
Seated among us during a scrvico
was a man who camu in and said: "I
don't know that there Is any God."
That was on Friday night I said: "We
will kneel down and find out whether
there is any God." And in the second
seat from the pulpit we knelt He said:
"I have found Him. There is a God, a
pardoning God. I feel Him here." He
knelt in the darkness of sin. He arose
two minutes af terward in tho liberty of
the Gospel; while another sitting under
the gallery on Friday night said: "My
opportunity is gone; last week I might
have been saved, not now; tho door is
shut" And another from the very
midst of the meeting, during the week,
rushed out of the front door of the
tabernacle, saying: "I am a lost man."
"Heboid! the lamb of God who takcth
away the sin of the world" "Now is

Beblix. July I. Copies of the fall
text of the second memorial presented
by Ucrr Cahensly to the papal secre
tary of state. Cardinal Ram polls, have
been put into circulation. The greatest
importance is attached to the memorial.
If, as it is hoped, the holy see can be
induced to follow out its recommenda
tions and appoint a large number of
German clergymen as bishops in the
United States, the German influence
across the Atlantic will be vastly in
creased and will redound directly to the
growth of the home German gov
ernment in American affairs. Herr Ca
hensly, indeed appeals for aid to other
foreign governments, Italy. Austria,
Spain, Canada, promising them in re
turn a due share of the prestige which
will come for a division of the episco
pal sees of America among the repre
sentatives of the different classes of
immigrants. It b felt here, neverthe
less, thU the lion's share will fall to
the lot of the empire. The war on the
Irish bishops "in America" will be
prosecuted with vigor. It will be no
fault of Herr Cahensly if he fails. The
text of the memorial in part says:

After speaking of the great inflnenco
of the bishops the memorial says:
Upon this -uusliun depend'! thu solution
of the greatest problem of the present tinie.
th problem of tint lmmlgr.ition of nations.
First, the salvation of mmiIs Is lit rein con

handed over almost exclusively to otic siuglo

assumes the proportions ot Jealous national
r.valnes. The want of justice. Is us presiug
as the want ot bread. It is desired that con
cord and harmony reign among tno different
notions thut go to make up the churches of
the United States. Nothing Is more desir
able, nothing more tsciitiaL The solo and
only way to attain this end Is to give to
every one of these nations bishops of their

represent their respective nations In the
episcopal Inidy. Just it a these nations aro

not be lost sight of that the American na
tion, the people of the United States, is not a
people of one rr re only but of all races.of all
nationalities. Every race. every nationality
may take its place in this the sunlight. lYe
clselyowingtothls fact and because religion
Is the cornerstone and the keystone of every
social edifice, the nations have an Immense
Interest In their emigrants being represent
ed In the episcopate of the United State by
bishops or their own. And therein lies th
reason why all tho nations whose popula
tions are emigrating to the great republic
are expecting from tho paternal solicitude
of the holy see bishops whom thrlr dearest
Interests call for. Finally the holy see It In
tcrcsted In the matter.
The memorial then argues that tho
appointment of bishops for tho differ

the holy see and thereby help the growth
of the church.

It is well to remember that an over

Once checked ia its thrift it is with
great difficulty that it can be brought

Pare water should be given freely to
the fattening hogs. Milk, which U
sometimes given in the place of water,
is too solid and doe not relieve thirst
as water does, and dishwater and swill
from the house are often salty. Give
fresh, purs water.
S. S. Bailey informs the Greeley
(Kan.) Republican that the wool from
his hundred head of sheep averaged ten
and one-tenth pounds per head, and he
marketed it at 2,1 cent, making K.SJ
per head, a total of SU3J on th wool,
and he has the sheep and tiftr good
A good as well as economical plan is
to feed hogs regularly at stated times
and then feed when fattening all they
can cat up clean. They will keep
healthier and thrive better than is pos
sible by keeping feed before them all
the time. It is what the animal di
gest not what they eat that deter
mines the gain in proportion to the
amount of food supplied.
Two years ago a North Dakota farm
er went into sheep raising with a eaj
ital of SiOU. Since then he has sold 570U
worth of wool and SOW worth of sheep,
and has 400 sheep left for which he has
been offered FJ.50 each. Thus from
his investment of SoOO his return. havo
been $--oa This result can bo dupli
cated in almost any region of our coun
try. A breed of sheep should Ins
selected in accordance with the climntic
conditions of tho region in which it is
to be bred. Then if intelligently man
aged it becomes one of the most profit
able of all branches of agriculture.
Ono of the very liest means of enlist
ing an interest in the growing and feed
ing of live stock, especially such
as arc being grown and fed for their
flesh, is the adoption of a regular sys
tem of weighing. There is no one too
old to begin ami follow this up, and us
a lesson to the young men of the farm
and to the hands employed thereon it
would be of the highest value. No
plan will show so promptly as this one
which animals to eliminate from tho
herd as being unworthy to le retnined
as breeders of meat producers, ts the
progress in growth and fattening is in
dicated with unerring certainty by the
evidences brought out upon the scales.
Coarse, cheap food is much lictter for
ducks while growing than whole ?rain,

Quite nn industry, and a prolitablo
one at that, can be made by raising
seedling trees to Imj taken up and
grafted at the close of their first sea
son's growth. It is desirable to have
tho roots the part used as large and
as long as possible. Hence tho soil
where grown should be mellow to the
depth of eight or ten inches.
Mnny farmers observe, the practice of
giving their hens skim-milk, and we
know they will testify to the value of
this iagredient We do not mean that
the man who once or twice n month
happens to take a little milk to his
fowls will immediately notice the dif

show itself in increased egg production.

must begin. In nearly aU cases the
sooner the plowing Is none the lietter.
Plow deep and thorough; one good
plowing is worth two skimmings.
However, if the shallow plowing has
been the rule previously, it is not a
good plan to plow too deep at one time,
as the bringing up of too much fresh
soil can hardly be considered bene
ficial. One of the cheapest plans of building
up the fertility of the soil Is by grow
ing and plowing under green crops. It
is not a good plan to allow the soil to
remain exposed to the hot sun of sum
mer without some protection. While
it is best to grow clover, buck
wheat rye, millet or some crop, it will
be better to allow a gd growth of
weeds and plow under at the right
time rather than to allow the soil to
stand naked during the next two
months. Plow under before the seed
The farmer needs a horse that is
adapted to all kinds of work; one that
