Dr. Talmago Gives Advice to the
A Sermon For Pessimists The Folly or
Looking on the Dmrk Side of Life "Saf-
Jlcient Cnto the Daj Is the EtU
Thereor' Trust the Lord.
Upon returning to Brooklyn from his
western tour Rev. T. DeWitt Talmage
preached in his tabernacle to a large
congregation npon the foolish habit of
"Borrowing Trouble." His text was
Matthew vL 34: 'Sufficient unto the
day is the evil thereof." Following is
The life of every man. woman and
child is as closely under the divine care
as though such person were the only
man, woman or child. There arc no
accidents. As there is a law of storms
in the natural world, so there is a law
of trouble, a law of disaster, a law of
misfortune: but the majority of the
troubles of life arc imaginary and the
most of those anticipated never come.
At any rate there is no cause of com
plaint against God. See how much He
hath done to make thee happy: His
sunshine filling the earth with glory,
making rainbow for the storm and halo
for the mountain, greenness for the
moss, saffron for the cloud, and crystal
for the billow, and procession of ban
nered flame through the opening gates
of the morning, chaffinches to sing,
rivers to ghtt-r, seas to chant, and
springs to blossom, and overpowering
all other sounds with its son?, and
overarching all other splendor with its
triumph, covering up all other beauty
with Its garland.-, and outilashing afl
other thrones with its dominion de

Our dispositions, like our plants, need
sunshine. Expectancy of repulse is the
cause of many secular and religious
failures. Fear of bankruptcy has up
torn many a fine business and sent the
man dodginc among the note shavers.
Fear of slander and abuse has often in
vited all the long-leaked vultures of
scorn and backbiting. Many of the
misfortunes of life, like hyenas, tlee if
you courageously meet them.
How poorly prepared for religious
duty is a man who sits down under the
gloom of expected misfortune. If he
pray, he says: 'l do not think I shall

expect they will steal the money."
Helen Chalmers told me that her
father, Thomai ("hal'iiers, in the dark
est hour rt the hi-.tory of the Free
church of Scotland, and wjon the woes
of the land seemed to weigh upon his
heart, said to the children: "Come,
let us 0 out and play ball or fly kite,"
and the only difficulty in the play was
that the children could not keep up
with their father. The McCheynes and
the Summeriields of the church who
did the nio-t good cultivated sunlight
Away with the horrors! They distill
poison: they dig graves, and if they
could climb so high, they would drown
the rejoicings of Heaven with sobs and
wailing. You will have nothing but
misfortune in the future if you sed
ulously watch for it How shall a man
catch the right kind of fish if he ar
ranges his line and hook and bate to
catch lizards and water serpents?
Hunt for bats and hawks, and bats and
hawks you will find. Hunt for robin red
brsasts and you will find robin red
breasts. One night an eagle and an owl got
into tierce battle: the eagle unused to

which is most at home in the darkness,
and the king of the air fell helpless;
but the morning rose, and with it rose
the eagle: and the owls and the night

time to the combat: now the eagle, in
the sunlight, with a stroke of his talons
and a great crj-. cleared the air. and his
enemies, with t rn feathers and

thickets. Ye are the children of light
In the night of depondenov you will
have no chance against your enemies
that flock up from beneath, but, trust
ing in Cod and standing in the sunshine
of the promise, you shall "renew your
youth like the eagle."
Again, thehabitof lorrowing trouble
is wrong, because it has a tendency to
make us overlook present blessing. To
slnke man's thirst the rock Ls cleft, and
cool waters leap into his brimming cup.
To feed hi hunger the fields bow down
with bending wheat and the cattle
rome down w ith full udders from the
rlover pastures to give hira milk, and
the orchards yellow and ripen, casting
their juicy fruits into his lap. Alas!
that amid such exuberance of blessing
man should growl, as though he were a
soldier on half rations, or a sailor on
short allowance; that a man should
stand neck deep in harvests looking for
ward to famine: that one should feel
the strong pulses of health marching
ith regular tread through all the ave
nue, of life, and yet tremb'e at the ex
pected assault of sickness; that a man
should sit in his pleasant home, fearful
that ruthless want w ill some dav rattle
the broken window sash with tempest,
and sweep the coals from the hearth,
and pour hunger into the bread tray;
that a man fed by Him who owns all
the harvests should expect to starve:
that one whom God loves and surrounds
with benediction, and attends with
angelic escort, and hovers over with
more than motherly fondness, should
be looking for a heritage of tears!
Has Gotl been hard with thee, that
thou shouldst be foreboding? Has He
stinted thy board? Has He covered
thee with rags? Has He spread traps
for thy feet and galled thy cup, and
rasped thy soul, and wrecked thee with
storm, and thundered upon thee with a
life full of calamity? If your father
or brother come into your bank where
gold and silver are lying about you do
not watch them, for you know they are
honest: but if an entire stranger come
bv the safe, you keep your eye on him,
for vou do not know his design. So
some men treat God: not as a Father,
but a stranger, and act suspiciously
toward him. as though they were afraid
he would steal something.
It Ls high time you began to thank
God for present blessings. Thank Him
for your children, happy, buoyant and
bounding. Praise Him for your home,
with its fountain of song and laughter.
Adore Him for morning light and even
iug shadow. Praise Hira for fresh, cool
water, bubbling from the rock, leaping
in the cascade, soaring in the mist, fall
ing in the shower, dashing against the
rocks and clapping its hands in the
tempest Love him for the grass that
cushions the earth, and the clouds that
curtain the sky and the foliage that
waves in the forest Thank Him for a
Bible to read, and across to gaze upon,
and a Saviour to deliver.
Many Christians think it a bad sign
to be jubilant, and their work of self
examination is a hewing down of their
brighter experiences. Like a boy with
a new jack knife, hacking everything
"he comes across, so their self examina
tion Ls a religious cutting to pieces of
the greenest things they can lay their
bands on They imagine they are do
ing God's service ,when they are going
about borrowing trouble, and borrow
ing it at thirty per cent, which is al
ways a sure precursor of bankruptcy.
Again, the habit of borrowing trouble
is wrong because the present is suffi
ciently taxed with trial. God sees that
we all need a certain amount of trouble
and so He apportion it for all the days
and years of our life. Alas for the pol
icy of gathering it up for one day or
one year! Cruel thing to put upon the
back of one camel all the cargo intend
ed for the entire caravan. I nerer
looked at my memorandum book to
see what engagements and duties are
far ahead. Let every week bear its
The shadows of to-day are thick
enough, why implore the presence of
other shadows? The cup is already dis
tasteful, why halloo to disasters far dis
tant to come and wring out more gall
into the bitterness? Are we such cham
pions that, having won the belt in
former encounters, we can go forth to
challenge all the future?
Here are business men just able to
manage affairs as they now arr. They
can pay their rent and meet their notes
and manage affairs as they now are,
but what if there should come a panic?
Go to-morrow and write on your day
book, on your ledger, on your money
safe, "Sufficient unto the day w the evil
thereof." Do not worry about
notes that are far from due.
Do not pile up on your
counting desk the financial anxieties of
the next twenty years. The God who
has taken care of your worldly occupa
tion, guarding your store from the
torch of the incendiary and the key of
the burglar, will be as faithful in 101
as in ls-sL God's hand is mightier
than the machinations of stock gam
blers, or the plots of political dema
gogues, or the red right arm of revolu
tion, and the darkness will fly and the
storm, fall dead at hLs feet
So there are persons in feeble health,
and they are worried about the future
They make out very well now, but
they are bothering themselves about
future pleurisies, and rheumatisms, and
neuralgias and fevers. Their eyesight
Ls feeble, and they are worried lest
they entirely lose it Their hearing is
indistinct and they are alarmed lest
they become entirely deaf. They felt
chilly to-day and are expecting an at
tack of typhoid. They have been
troubled for weeks with some
perplexing malady, and dread be
coming lifelong invalids. Take care of
your health now, and trust God for the
future. Be not guilty of the blasphemy
of asking him to take care of you while
you sleep with your windows tight
down, or eat chicken salad at eleven
o'clock at night, or sit down on a cake
of ice to col o Be prudent and then
be confident Some of the sickest peo
ple have leen the most useful. It was
so with Payson, who died deaths daily,
and Uolert Hall, who used to stop In
the midst of his sermon, and lie down
on the pulpit sofa to rest and then go
on again. Theodore Frelinghuysen had
a great horror of dying until the time
came, and then went peacefully. Take
care of the present and let the future
take care of itself. "Sufficient unto
the day is the evil thereof."
Again: The habit of borrowing mis
fortune is wrong, because it unfits us
for it when it actually does come. We
cannot always have smooth sailing.
Life's path will sometimes tumble
among declivities, and mount a steep,
and be thorn-pierced. Judas will kiss
our cheek, and then sell us for thirty
pieces of silver. Human scorn will try
to crucify us between two thieves. We
will hear the iron gate of the sepulchre
creak and grind as it shuts in our kin
dred. But we cannot get ready for
thes things by forebodings.
They who fight imaginary woes will
come, out of breath, into conflict with
the armed disasters of the future.
Their ammunition will have been
wasted long before they come under
the guns of real misfortune. IJojs, in
attempting to jump a wall, sometimes
go so far back in order to get impetus,
that when they come up they are ex
hausted: and these long races in order
to get spring enough to vault trouble,
brintf us up at last to the dreadful
reality with our strength gone.
Finally: The habit of borrowing
trouble is wrong, because it is unbelief.
God has nromised to take care of us.
The Bible blooms with assurances.
Your hunger will be fed; your sickness
will be alleviated; your sorrows will be
healed. God will sandal your feet, and
smooth your path and along by frown
ing crag and opening grave sound the
voices of victory and good cheer. The
summer clouds that seem thunder
charged really carry in their bosom
harvests of wheat and shocks of corn,
and vineyards, purpling for the wine
press. The w rathf ul wave will kiss the
feet of the great Storm-walker. Our
great Joshua will command, and above
your soul the sun of prosperity will
stand stil'. Bleak and wave-struck
Patmos shall have apocalyptic vision,
and you shall hear the cry of the elders
and the sweep of wings, and trumpets
of salvation, and the voice of Hallelujah
Your way may wind along dangerous
bridle paths, and amid wolfs howl and
the scream of the vulture, but the way
still winds upward till angels guard It
and trees of life overreach it and
thrones line it and crystalline fount
ains leap on it and the pathway ends
at gates that are pearl, and streets that
are gold, and temples that are always
open, and hills that quake with perpet

O, that. the son for inc.
Courage, my brother! The father
does not give to his son at school
enough money to last him several
years, but. as the bills for tuition and
board, and clothing and books come in,
pays them. So God will not give you
grace all at once for the future, but
will meet all your exigencies as they
come. Through earnest prayer, trust
Him. Put everything in God's hand and
leave it there. Large interest money
to pay will soon eat up a farm, a store,
an estate, and the interest on borrowed
troubles will swamp anybody. "Suffi

Only One Chose to Be a Farmer.
It is interesting to note the choice of
pursuits made by the l?A students who
graduated during the recent commence
ment season from the four colleges of
Maine. One has chosen farming for an
occupation: two each have fchosen
chemistry and the United States civil
service; five, journalism: seven, mer
cantile pursuits; twelve engineering;
thirteen, the ministry: eighteen, medi
cine; nineteen, the law; thirty-three,
teaching, while twenty-four are unde-"
cided. The large proportion of, these
graduates to choose teaching and the
small proportion to choose business are
significant features of the showing. In
the large universities the drift is very
different The fact that thirteen out
of 1S6 choose the ministry proves that
the "set" against the ministry is not so
strong in the small as in the large col
leges. At Yale, for example, this com

The constant and increasing demand

the failure of physical strength under

An electric door opener has also been

while in the other system each
