, EV. DR. TALMAGE'S SERMON ON THE
"A Man' Wisdom Maketh Ills Face to
8hlne" Thr, Grant 'Teacher Acln tla
coursps Uiom a Unique Subject A Map
of the Mind.
Bnooiat.v, Feb. 2B.-In tho Brooklyn
Tabcrnncle th( forenoon Hcv. Dr. TalmnRo
chosu for tho subject of his sermon "The
Huninri Face" and hold hi great nudienco
fasolnnted with tho charm of his eloquenco
as he discoursed on a subject of universal
Interest. Tho text was Kccleslastc vlll. 1.
"A man's wisdom mnkuth ills fnco to fchlne,
and tho boldness of bis faco shall bechanc
ed," or, as It may be rendered, "the sour
ness of his face tball be sweetened."
Thusnllttlo change In our English trans,
latlon brlngBOUt the better meaning of the
text, which sett forth that the character of
tho face Is dtjided by tho character of tho
soul. The mall features of our countenance
were decided by tho Almighty, and we can
not change them, but under God we decldo
whether we shall have countenances be
nignant or baleful, sour or sweet, wrathful
or genial, Uuevolent or mean, honest or
acoundrelly, Impudent or modest, coura
geous or cowardly, frank or snoaklug.
In all the.Mrorka of God there Is nothing
more wonlerful than the human counte
nance. Thiugh the longest face is less than
13 Inches om the hair line of tho forehead
to the bottom of the chin, and the broadest
faco Is led than eight Inches from cheek
bone to cheek bone, yet In that small com
pass Gci hath wrought such differences
that thv 1,000,000,000 of the human raco
may be distinguished from each other by
their rolal appearances. The faco Is ordi
narily the lndox of character. It is tho
throneof the emotions. It Is the battlefield
of thf passions. It is the catalogue of char
acter It is the map of the mind. It is tho
geoWphy of the soul.
AtJ whilo the Lord decides before our
birth; whether wo shall be handsome or
hotitly, we are by tho character we form
deeding whether our countenances shall be
pUwtant or disagreeable. This Is so much
so Jin t somo of the most beautiful faces are
urittrnctlvo becauso of their arrogance or
thir deccitfuluess, and somo of tho most
r-rged and irregularfeaturcsaro attractive
txjjcauso of tho kindness that shines through
tacin. Accident or sickness or scarification
nay veil tho faco so that It shall not ex
press tho soul, but in tho majority of cases
give me a deliberate look at a man's coun
tenance, nnd I will toll you whether ho is a
cynlo or an optimist, whether ho is n miser
or a philanthropist, whether he is noble or
ignominious, whether ho is good or bad.
Our first impression of a man or woman Is
generally tho accurate impression.
You at the first glauco mako tip your
mind that somo man is unworthy of your
friendship, but afterward by circumstances
being put into intlmnte association with
him you come to like him and trust him.
Yet, stay with him long enough, and you
will bo compelled to return to your original
estimato of his character, but It will bo after
holms cheated yon out of everything he
could lay his hands on. It is of God's
mercy that wo have thrso outside indexes of
character. Phrenology is ono index, and
while it may bo carried to nn absurd ex
tent there is no doubt that you cau judge
somewhat of anion's character by tho shape
of bin head. Palmistry is another index,
nnd while It may be carried into tho fanci
ful and necromantic thero is no doubt that
certain linos in the palm of tho hand are
lndicativo of mental and moral traits.
Physiognomy Is another index, und while
tho contour of the hurann face may some
times mislead us wo cau generally, after
looking into tho cyo and noticing tho curvo
of the Up, and the spread of the nostril,
and the correlation of all the features,
como to a right estimate of a mau'ti charac
ter. If it were not so, howwould wo know
whom to trust and whom to avoid? Wheth
er we will or not, physiognomy decides a
thousand things in commercial and finan
cial nnd social and religious domains.
From one lid of tho Bible to tho other thero
is no science so recognized as that of physi
ognomy nnd nothing more thoroughly tak
en for granted thnu the power of the soul to
transfigure tho faco.
The I3iblo speaks of the "faco of God,"
tho "faco of Jesus Christ," tho "faco of
Esau," tho "faco of Israel," tho "faco of
Job," the "face of tho old man," tho shin
ing "fnco of Moses," the wrathful "faco of
Pharonh," tho ashes on the face of humilia
tion, tho rcsurrcctlonary staff on tho face of
tho dead child, tho hypocrites disfiguring
their face, and in my text tho Bible doclnres,
"A man'H wisdom maketh bid fnco to shine,
and tho sourness of bis faco shall bo aweet
cued." If tho Blblo has 60 much to say
about physlosnomy, wo do not wonder that
tho world has in ado it a study from the
In vnln tho English parliament in the
time of George II ordered publicly whipped
nnd imprisoned thoso who studied physiog
nomy. Intelligent people always have stud
ied it and always will study It. The pens of
Moses nnd Joshua and Job and John and
Paul, as well ns of Hosmer and Hippoc
rates and Galen and Aristotle and Soorn
tes and Plato and Lavnter, have been dipped
Into it, nnd whole libraries of wheat and
chaff havo been garnered on this theme.
A T1UUHNI OVEIl DISriOURKMENT.
Now, what practical, religious and eter
nal uso would I mako of this subject? I
am going to show that whilo wo are not re
ponslblo for our features, the Lord Al
mighty having decided what they Bhall be
preiltttally, as the psalmist declares when he
writes, "In my book all my members were
written which in contlnuanco were fashion
ed when as yet there was none of them,"
yet tho character which under God wo form
will chifcel tho faco most mightily. Every
man would li to huvo besn made in np

would like to have been mado a Josephine.
w nil want to bo agreeable. Our use
fulness depends so much upon it that I con
sider it Important and Christian for every

Now, my text suggests bow we TW, In
dependent of features, make ontfc.wes

shall be sweetened." What I say may

with his eloquence, and thousands ot Invall J
preachers and Sabbath school teachers and
Christian workers. Aye, the most glorious
being the world ever saw was foresoen by
Isaiah, who described his face bruised and
gashed and scarified, and said of him, "His
visage wns so marred moro than any mnu."
So you seo thnt the loveliest face in tho uni
verse was a scarred face.
IIEDUKE OF PESSIMIBU.
And now I am going to tell you of somo
of tho chisels that work for the disfigura
tion or irradiation of tho humau counte
nance. Ono of tho shnrpost and most de
structive of those chisels of the countenance
Is oynlclsm. Thnt sours thedlspotltlon und
than sours the face. It gives a contemptu
ous curl to the lip. It draws down tho cor
ncrs of tho mouth and inflates the nostrils
as with a malodor. What David said in
hasto they say In their deliberation, "All
men are liars." Everything Is going to ruin.
All men and women are bad or going to
be. Society and the church are on the down
grade. Tell them of an act of benevolence,
and they say he gave that to advertise him
self. They do not like tho present fashion
ot bats for women or of coats for mcu. They
are opposed to tho administration, munlci-
Sal and state and national. Somehow food
ocs not tosto as it used to, and they won
der why there are no poets or orators or
preachers as when they wero boys.
Even Solomon, one ot tho wisest nnd at
ono time one of the worst of men, falls into
the pessimistic mood and cries out in the
twenty-first chapter ot Proverbs, "Who can
find a virtuous woman?" It he had be
haved himself better and kept In good asso
ciations, be would not have written that In
terrogation point implying the scarcity of
good womanhood. Cynicism, if a habit, as
it is with tens ot thousands ot people,
writes itself nil over the features; hence so
many sour visages all up and down the
street, all up and down the church and the
Ono good way to mako the world worse is
to say it is worse. Let a depressed and fore
boding opinion of everything take posses
sion of you for 20 years, and you will be a
sight to behold. It is the chastisement of
God that when n man allows his heart to be
cursed with cynicism his faco becomes
gloomed and scowled and lachrymosed and
blasted with tho samo midnight.
THE CI1AKOE or HEART.
But let Christian cheerfulness try its
chisel upon a roan's countenance. Feeling
that all things aro for his good, and thnt
God rules, nnd that tho Bible being truo
tho world'flflornllzatlon is rapidly approach
ing, and tho day when beer mug nu'd demi
john nnd distillery and bombshell aud rifle
pit and 74 pounders and roulette tables and
corrupt book nnd satanlc printing press
will have quit work, tho brightness thnt
comes from such anticipation not only gives
zest to his work, but shines In his eyes and
glows lu his cheek aud kiudlcs a morning
in his entire countenance. Thoso nro tho
faces I look for in an audience. Those
countenances are sections of millennial
flory. They nre heaven Impersonated,
hey aro tho sculpturing of God's right
hand. They aro hosannas In human flesh.
They nre halleluiahs alighted. They are
I do not care what your features aro or

Michael Angelo, the sculptor, visiting Flor
ence, some ono showed him in n back yard
a piece of marble that was bo shapeless it
seemed ot no Ubc, and Angelo wus asked if
he could mnko anything out ot It, nnd if so
he was told be could own it. The artist
took the marble and for nlno months shut
himself up to work, first trying to make ot
It a statue of LMvhl, witn bis foot on Go
liath, but tho murblo was not quite long
enough at the base to moke tho prostrate
form ot tho giant, and so the artist fashion
ed the marble Into another figure that is
famous for all time because of It express
iveness. A critic came In and was asked by Angelo
for his criticism, and be said it was beauti
ful, but tho nose of the statue was not of
right shape, Angelo picked up from the
floor somo sand and tossed it about tho faco
of tho statue, pretending he was using his
chisel to make tho Improvement suggested
by the critic. "What do you think of it
now?" said the artist. "Wonderfully im
proved," suld the critic. "Well," said the
artist, "I have not changed It at nil."
My friends, the grace ot God comes to the
heart of a man or woman and then attempts
to change a forbidding and prejudicial face
into attractiveness. Perhaps the face is
most unpromising for the divine sculptor.
But, having chnnged the heart, It begins to
work on the countenance with celestial
chisel, and into all the lineaments of the
face puts a gladness and an expectation that
change it from glory to glory, and, though
earthly criticism may disapprove of this or
thnt in the appearance ot the face, Christ
says of tho newly created countenance that
which Pilate said ot him, "Behold the manl"
fllAPIKO TUE COUNTENANCE.
Here is another mighty chisel for the
countenance, and you may call It revenge
or hate or malevolence. This spirit having
tnken possession of the heart, It encamps
seven dovils under the eyebrows. It puts
cruelty into the compression of tho lips.
You can tell from the man's looks that he
is pursuing some ouo nnd trying to get even
v,,Uhhlm. There nro hiiggestlons of Nero
and Robespierre and Diocletian and thumb
screws and racks all up and down tho fea
tures. Infernal artists, with tnurduren,'
daggers, have been cutting uwayat that
visage. Thu revengeful heart has built Its
perdition iu tho icvengeful couuteuauce.

ANECDOTE OP LtNCOLN.
A Bayonno merchant was in the south of
Europo for his health, and sitting on the
terracoono morning in his Invalidism lis
saw n rider flung from a horse into the river,
und without thinking of his own weakness
the merchant fluug off his invalid's gown,
leaped into tho stream and swam to tho
drowning man, and clutching him as ho was
about to go down tho lust time bore him in
safety to tho bank, when glancing Into the
faco of tho rescued man ho cried: "My Godl
I havo saved my own soul"
All kindness comes back to us In one wa)
or another; if not lu any other way, then
iu your own fnco. Kindness! Show it to
others, for tho time ninv como when vou
will need it yourself. Peoplo laughed at
tho lion becnuso ho spared the mouse that
ran over him, when by ono motion of his
paw the monster could have crushed tho lu
significant disturber. But it was well that
tho lion had mercy on tho mouse, for onu
day tho lion was caught in n trap and roar
ed fearfully becnuso ho was held fast by
ropes. Then the mouso gnawed off tho
ropes and let tho lion go free. You may
consider yourself a Hon, nut you cannot ox

When Abraham Lincoln pardoned a
young soldier at the request of his uiotucr,
tho mother went down tho stnlrs of the
White Houso saying: "They havo lied about
tbo president's being homely. Ho is tho
handsomest man I oversaw." All over that
president's rugged faco was written tho
kindness which ho so vull illustrated when
ho said, "Somo ot our generals complain
that I impair discipline and subordination
in tho ormr by my pardons and respites,
but it makes mo rested after n bard day's
work if I can find some good excuse for sav
ing a man's lite, and I go to bed hnppler us
I think how joyous tho signing of my name
will make him and his family." Kindncssl
It makes tho faco to shlno whilo life lasts,
and after death it puts a summer sunset
between the still lips and tho smoothed hulr,
that makes me say sometimes at obsequies,
"She seems too beautiful to bury."
But here comes another chisel, and its
name is hypocrisy. Christ, with ono ter
rifle stroke in his sermon on tho mount, do
scribed this charoctsr, "When ye fast, be
not as tho hypocrites of a ad couuteuauce,
for they disfigure their faces that they may
nppenr unto men to fast." Hypocrisy nnv
ln2 taken possession ot the soul, it immedi
ately appears in tho countenance. Hypo
crites ure al wnys solemu. 1 hey carry several
country graveyards iu their faces. They
nre tearful when them is nothing to cry
ubout, and in their (raycrs they catch for
their brcnth and havo such general doleful

We had ono ot them in one of my
churches. When he exhorted, ho always
deplored the low stato of religion In other
people, and whan lie prayed it was an at
tnck of hysteria, and ho wout into n paroX'
ysm of ohh and nhs that seemed to demaud
resuscitation. Ho went on In ttiat way un
til wo had to expol htm from church for
stealing tho property intrusted to him as
administrator and lor other vices tnat i
will not mention, and ho wroto me several
letters not at all complimentary from the
west saying that he was dally praying for
rnv everlasting destruction. A man can'
not have hypocrisy lu his heart without
somehow showing It lu ms face. All Intel
llgent peoplo who witness it know it is
nothing but n dramatization.
Hero comes another chisel, nnd thnt be
longs to the old fashioned religion. It first
tukes possession of tho whole soul, washing
out its sins by the blood of tho Lamb and
starting heaven right there and then. This
dono deep down lu tho heart, religion says:
"Now let mo go up to tho windows nnd
front gnto of tho face and set up some signal
that I have taken possession of this castle.
I will colcbrnto thu victory by nn lllumlna
tton that no ono can mistake. I have mado
this man happy, and now I will make him
look happy. I will draw the corners of his
mouth as fur up as they were drawn down
I will tako tho contemptuous curl away
from tho lip and nostril. I will mako bis
eyes flash and ills cheeks glow at every
mention ot Christ and heaven. I will mako
even the wrinkles of his faco look like fur
rows plowed for the harvests of joy, I will
mako what we call the 'crow's feet' around
his temples suggestlvo thnt tho dovo of
peace bus been alighting there." Thero
may bo signs ot trouble ou that face, but
troublo sauctlfled. Thero may bo scars ot
battle on that face, but they will bo Ecurs of
a campaign won.
TnK MOTHER'S FACE.
"Now," says somo ono, "I know very good
people who havo no Mich religion iu their
faces." My friend, tho .reason probably Is
that they wero not converted until into in
llfo. Worldliness aud sin hod been at work
with their chisels on thnt fuco for SO or 40
yeura, and Grace, the divine sculptress, has
been busy with her chisel only five or ten
years. Do not bo surprised that Phidias
and Greenough, with their lino chisels, can
not lu a short while remove all the marks
of the stone mason's crowbar, which boa
been busy there for a long while, I say to
all tho young, if you would havo sympa

cheerful faco, kind face, at the earliest pos
sible moment, by the grace of God, have
planted in your soul sympathy anil hope
and courage and good cheer and kindness.
No man ever Indulged a gracious feeling,
or was moved by n righteous indignation,
or was stirred by n benevolent Impulse, but
its effect wus moio or less indicated In tho
countennnci', whilo David noticed tho physl
ognomlo effect of ujiml disposition when he
said, "A wicked man lmrdeneth his face,"
and Jt'ie in !uh must have noticed it when
ho said of the cruel, "They have mudothtlr

But I can tell you of a moro sympathetic,
and more tender, and more loving face than
any of tho faces I have mentioned. "No,
you cannot," says some one. I can. nnd 1
will. It is tho fuce of Jesus Christ ns ho
was on earth nnd is now lu heaven. When
preparing my llfo of Christ, entitled "From
Manger to Throne," I ransacked tho art
galleries and portfolios of tbo world to find
u picture of our Saviour's faco that might
bo most expressive, nnd I suw it as Fran
cesco Frnncia painted it iu the sixteenth
century, und as the emerald intaglio of tbo
sixth century presented it, and as a fresco
In the catacombs near Iiomo preserved It,
and as Leonardo da Vinci showed it in
"The Last Supper," and I looked in tho
Louvre, and tho Luxembourg, and tho Vutl
can, und tho Dresden, aud the Berlin, and
Neapolitan and Loudon galleries for tho
most Inspiring fuco of Christ, and many of
tho presentations wero wonderful for pa
thos und majesty nnd powernnd execution;
but, although I selected that by Ary Belief
fer as In somo respects tho mostexnrossive.
I felt, us wo all feel, that our Christ has
never jet been presented either in sculpturo
or painting, and thnt wo will havo to wait
until we rlsu to tho upper palace, whore we
shall sou hi in us he is.
Whut a gentle fnco it must hnvo been to
induct) tho babes to strugglo out ot their
mothers' urms Into his arms! Whnt an ox
presslvo fuco It must have lon when one
reproving look of it throw stalwart Peter
into a fit of tears! What a pleading faco it
must huvo bocu to lead tho psalmists In
prayer to say of it, "Look upon the fuce of
thluo anointed!" What it sympathetic faco
it must huvo been to encourage the sick
woman who was beyond any help from the
doctors to touch tbo hem of bis garment!
What n suffering faco it must havo been
when suspended on tho perpendicular and
horizontal pieces of tho wood of martyrdom,
aud his antagonists slapped the pallid cheek
with their rough bauds aud befouled it
with tho sallvuof their blasphemous lips!
Whut n tremendous fuco It must huvo been
to lend St. John to describe it in the com
ing judgment us hcattoring tbo universe
when ho says, "From whoso faco tho earth

1 think my brother John, the returned
foreign missionary, dying summer before
lost nt Bound Brook, caught a glimpse of
that faco of Christ wheu in his dying hour
my brothor said, "I shall bo satisfied when

M. Heynler, a Paris physician, has been
successfully using liquid sulol, cither by
Itself or iu combination with Iodoform or
aristol, in fronting Ustulto nnd suppurat
ing cavities. Tuberculosis and suppur
ating glands thnt bad not been opened
nnd flstulio caused by such glands when
treated In this wuy wero cured. Flstultu
following resection of tho rib for tubercu
losis were completely healed. And it is
stated that u cavity In a bono caused by
a localized tuberculous abscess, when filled
with n mixture of snlol and iodoform, cau
bo cured without suppuration in a rela
tively short spuco ot time.
At n temperature of 107 degrees F. salol
melts aud remains some time iu a liquid
stato, even nfter n slight cooling. This
strong antlseptto can bo injected without
uny risk Into cavities. Tho balol crystal
lizes and is then gradually absorbed, so
that the cavity or fistula is thoroughly
disinfected. Liquid salol aud Iodoform iu
combination glvo most excellent results
In dressing sutures, us when It crystallizes
over n Incision It forms un nntlscptlo vur
nlsli for thu protection of tho wound.
But such injections of liquid salol aro
contra Indicated lu suppurating cavities
which comniunlcato with tho exterior by
only it small orlttco. Iu biich cases U19
