WRITES US HIS USUAL SUNDAY
“Another Chance" the Subject Thereof
—People Who Think They Can Cor
rect Tlielr Mistakes In this W'orid are
Doomed to Disappointment*
There is a hovering hope in the
tninds of a vast multitude that there
will be an opportunity in the next
world to correct the mistakes of this;
that, if we do make complete ship
wreck of our earthly life, it will be on
a shore up which we may walk to a
palace; that, as a defendant may lose
his case in the Circuit court, and carry
it up to the Supreme court or Court of
Chancery and get a reversal of judg
ment in his behalf, all the costs being
thrown over on the other party, so, if
we fail in the earthly trial, we may in
the higher jurisdiction of eternity have
the judgment of the lower court set
aside, all the costs remitted, and we
may be victorious defendants forever.
My object in this sermon is to show
that common sense, as well as my text,
declares that such an expectation is
chimerical. You say that the impeni
tent man, having got into the next
world and seeing the disaster, will, as
a result of that disaster, turn, the pain
the cause of liis reformation. Hut
you tan iind ten thousand instances in
this world of men who have done
wrong and distress overtook them
suddenly. Did the distress heal them?
No; they went right on.
That man was flung- of dissipations.
“You must stop drinking,” said the
doctor, “and quit the fast life you are
leading, or it will destroy you.” The
patient suffers paroxysm after parox
ysm; hut, under skillful medical treat
ment, he begins to sit up, begins to
walk about the room, begins
to go to business. And, lo! he goes
hack to the same grog shops for his
morning dram, and his evening dram,
and the drams between. Flat down
again! Same doctor! Same physical
anguish. Same medical warning.
Now, the illness is mo*e protracted;
the liver is more stubborn, the stom
ach more irritable, and the digestive
organs are mere rebellious. Hut after
awhile he is out again, goes back to
the same dram shops, and goes the
same round of sacrilege against his
lie sees that his downward course is
ruining his household, that his life is
a perpetual perjury against his mar
riage vow, that that broken-hearted
woman is so unlike the roseate young
wife whom he married that her old
school mates do not recognize her;
that his sons are to be taunted for a
life time by the father's drunkenness,
that the daughters are to pass into
life under the scarification of a dis
reputable ancestor. He is drinking
up their happiness, their prospects for
this life, and, perhaps, for the life to
come. Sometimes an appreciation of
what he is doing comes upon him.
His nervous system is all a tangle.
From crown of head to sole of foot he
is one aching, rasping, crucifying,
damning torture. Where is he? In
hell on earth. Docs it reform him?
After awhile he has d.elirum tremens,
with a whole jungle of hissing reptiles
let out on liis pillow, and his screams
horrify the neigliors as he dashes cut j
of his bed, crying: “Take these things !
off me!” As he sits pale and convales- ;
cent, the doctor says: “Now I want
to have a plain talk with you, my
dear fellow. The next attack of this
kind you have you will he beyond all
medical skill, and you will die.” He
gets better and goes forth into the
same round again. This time medicine
takes no effect. Consultation of phy
sicians agree in saying there is no
hope. Death ends the scene.
Tnat process of inebriation, warn
ing and dissolution is going on within '
stone’s throw of you, going on in all !
the neighborhoods of Christendom.
Pain does not correct. Suffering does
not reform. What is true in one sense
is true in all senses, and will forever
he so, and yet men are expecting in
the next world purgatorial rejuvena
tion. Take up the printed reports of
the prisons of the United States. !
and you will find that the vast ma
jority of the incarcerated have been
there before, some of them four, five,
six times. With a million illustrations
all working the other wav in this
world, people are expecting that dis
tress in the next state will be salva
tory. You can not imagine any worse
torture in any ether world than that
which some men have suffered here,
and without any salutary conse
Futhermore, the prospect of a refor
mation in the next world is more im
probable than a reformation here.
In this wrorld the life started with in
nocence of infancy. In the case sup
posed, the other life will open with
all the accumulated bad habits of
many years upon him. Surely, it is
easier to build a strong ship out of
new timber than out of an old hulk
that has been ground up in the
breakers. If with innocence to start
with in this life a man does not be
come godly, what prospect is there
that iD the next world, starting with
sin, there would be a seraph evoluted?
Surely the sculptor has more prospect
of making a fine statue out of a block
of pure white Parian marble than out
of an old black rock seamed and
cracked with the storms of half a cen
tury. Surely upon a clean, white
sheet of paper it is easier to write a
deed or a will, than upon a sheet of
paper scribbled and blotted and torn
from top to bottom. Yet men seem to
think that, though the life that be
gan here comparatively perfect turned
out badly, the next life will succeed,
though it starts with a dead failure.
Foneropolis was a city where King
Philip of Thracia put all the bad peo
ple of his kingdom. If any man had
opened a primary school at Poneropolis,
1 do not think t^e parents from other
cities would have sent their children
there. Instead of amendment in the
other world, all the associations, now
that the good are evolved, will bo de
generating and down. You would not
want to send a man to a cholera or
yellow fever hospital for his health;
and the great lazaretto of the next
world, containing the diseased ami
plague-struck, will be a poor place for
moral recovery. If the surroundings
in tli is world were crowded of tempta
tion, the surroundings of the next
world, after the righteous have passed
up and on, will be 1,000 per cent more
crowded of temptation.
Multitudes of men who are kept
within bounds would say, “Go to,
now! Let me get all out of this life
there is in it. Come, gluttony, and
inebriation, and uncleanness, and re
venge, and all sensualities, and wait
upon me! My life may be somewhat
shortened in this world by dissolute
ness. but that will only make heavenly
indulgence on a larger scale the sooner
possible. I will overtake the saints at
last, and will enter the Heavenly
Temple only a little later than those
who behaved themselves here. I will
on my waj' to heaven take a little
wider excursion than those who were
on earth pious, and I shall go *o
heaven via Gehenna and via Sheol. ”
Another chance in the next world
means free license and wild abandon
ment in this.
Suppose you were a party in an im
portant case at law, and you knew
from consultation with judges and at
torneys that it would be tried twice,
md the first trial would be of little
importance, but that the second would
lecide everything; for which trial
would you make the most preparation,
for which retaip the ablest attorneys,
for which be most anxious about the
attendance of witnesses? You would
put all the stress upon the second trial,
all the anxietv, all the expenditure,
saving, "The first is nothing, the last
is everything. ’ Give the race assurance
of a second and more important trial in
the subsequent life,and all tlie prepara
tion for eternity would be "post mor
tem,” post funeral, post sepulchral and
the world with one jerk be pitched off
into impiety and godlessness.
Furthermore, let me ask why a
chance should be given in the next
world if we have refused innumerable
chances iu this? Suppose you give a
banquet, and you invite a vast number
of friends, but one man declines to
come, or treats your invitation with
indifference. Yrou in the course of
twenty years give twenty banquets,
and the same man is invited to them
ill, and treats them all in the same
obnoxious way. After awhile you
remove to another house, larger and
better, and you again invite your
friends, but send no invitation to the
man wno declined or neglected the
other invitations. Are you to blame?
lias he a right to expect to be invited
after all the indignities he has done
you? God in this world has invited us
ill to the banquet of his grace, lie
invited us by bis Providence and his
Spirit 3t>5 days of every year since we
knevv our right hand from our left. If
yve declined it every time, or treated
the inydtation with indifference,
and gave twenty or forty or fifty years
of indignity on our part toward the
banqueter, and at last he spreads the
banquet in a more luxurious and
kingly place, amid the heavenly
gardens, have we a right to expect
him to invite us again, and have we a
right to blame him if lie does not in
If twelve gates of salvation stood
open twenty years or fifty years for
our admission, and at the end of that
time they are closed, can we complain
of it and say: “These gates ought to
be open again. Give us another
chance?” If the steamer is to sail for
Hamburg, and we want to get to
Germany by that line, and we read in
every- evening and every morning
newspaper that it will sail on a cer
tain day, for two weeks we have that'
advertisement before our eyes, and
then we go down to the docks fifteen
minutes after it has shoved off into the
stream and say: “Come back. Give
me another chance. It is not fair to
treat me in this way. Swing up to the
dock again, and throw out planks and
let me come on board.” Such behavior
would invite arrest as a madman.
You see that this idea lifts this
world up from an important way sta
tion to a platform of stupendous issues,
and makes all eternity whirl around
this hour, liut one trial for which all
the preparation must be made in this
world, or never made at all. That
Diles up all the emphases all the cli
maxes and all the destinies into life
here. Jio other chance’. 0, how that
augments the value and the imopar
tance of this chance!
Alexander with his army used to
surround a city, and then would lift a
great light in token to the people that,
is they surrendered before that light
went out, all would be well; but if
once the light went out, then the bat
tering-rams would swing against the
wall, and demolition and disaster
would follow. Well, all we need do
for our present and everlasting safety
if to make surrender to Christ, the
king and conqueror—surrender of
our hearts, surrender of our lives,
surrender of everything. And he
keeps a great light burning, light of
gospel invitation, light kindled with
the wood of the cross and darning up
against the dark night of our sin and
sorrow. Surrender while that great
light continues to burn, for after it
goes out there will be no other oppor
tunity of making peace with God
through our Lord Jesus Christ. Talk
of another chance! IV hy, this is a su

CAPTURED BY BRIGANDS.
1’aron Arrlgro’n Adventure In a Secro!
Cav**rn In tlio Apennines.
Tho trial of tho brigands who car
ried away Huron Arrigo from Naples
some time ago is now proceeding at
Trani, and tho other day the baron
recounted his adventures before tho
court, says a Paris lettor.
Tho most interesting part is his
stay in the mountain cavern. It was
running with water, and ho begged
to bo taken away, but his captors
i refused, and ho was obliged to stand
continually, tho ground being so wet,
and thero being not even a stone to
sit upon. At last.ovcrcome by fatigue,
he lay down and slept profoundly for
four hours. At Jawn ho felt himself
pulled by tho legs. His keeper had
awakened him, going away immedi
ately afterward. Arrigo, as soon as
it was quite light, went toward tho
entrance of tho cavorn, and not
having eaton anything for forty
eight hours, prayed a brigand, who
stood there, to give him some food.
The man ordered him to be silent,
saying that in the evening ho should
have what ho wished.
A week passed, and one day, on
Wednesday, the baron was told that
he would be allowed to go next
Saturday. That night ho heard two
of the brigands talking. One said tho
money had arrived, but it was very
little, and the oilier replied:
“Never mind if only it has conic.”
When Saturday came Arrigo had
had taken no bread for two days, and
said to his jailers;
“1 have not eaten, because this
evening I am to go away.”
Tho brigand replied that it would
be better to eat, for lie would not
get away that night, Arrigo was
attacked with a strong fever, besides
which he believed he would in the
end die of fumine, for the brigands
had no money and ho himself no
change. Ho had managed to con
ceal a note of l.OOOf.. having given
3001, to George Bruno the first day.
Another week passed, and when
Wednesday came again Arrigo asked
to see Lazzara, hut was told that ho
had gone away with sorao others to
divide the ransom. They were also
going to “show themselves” in the
village. On tho Saturday afternoon
the baron asked if lie could be re
leased, and was answered in the
affirmative. Toward t o’clock his
guardian came and took away all the
objects in the cavern, among other
things the cap and jacket of a carabi
neer. Then Arrigo was led out, and
tried to determine tho situation of
the cavern in which he had so long
been confined. When night fell the
brigands led himdownthe mountain,
and as soon as they reached the plain
told him to go on in front and they
would follow him. Arrigo went on,
but tho brigands remained behind.
When Arrigo finally reached the
town of Termini he found his wife in
an almost dying state and all his rela
tions worn out by anxiety, lie was
told that of the 1:M, 000 francs ransom
>, >>0 > francs had gone to the priest
named Guattrocchi for “camorra”and
10,00 > francs to the priest’s brother
I’asquaie for the expenses of prepar
ing liis release.
Von Buloiv mi l tins Drummer.
While walking along the streets ol i
Vienna one day with a friend, Von
Bulow came across a regimental
baud on its way to the castle to play
at a certain hour. He let go the arm
ot his companion, ran to the middle
of the street, and joined the small
boys about the drummer. Following
the band, he kept bowing to the sur
prised drummer, and applauded him
at almost every beat. “That is
rhythm! Ex-cellent! That's the
way I like to hear it,” he continued
to ejaculate, to the surprise of the
musical soldiers and the great de
light of the small boys. People in
the streets recognized the famous
pianist and joined the procession, so
that the band, upon arriving at the
castle, had one of the largest audi
ences to which it had over played.
He listened attentively to the end of
the last piece, and then made a deep,
obeisance before the drummer and
his instrument “Thank you,” he
said; “that was refreshing! That
puts my nerves in good condition,
again.” \\ hen the drummer learned
