If We Could Only See a Reflection of
Our hearts the World Would Indeed he
Dotter-The Truths of Jesus Christ
Are Forever InterPating.
BROOKLYN , Oct 28.-Rev. Dr. Tal-
mage , who has left India and is now
on his homeward journey , has selected
as the subject of his sermon to-day
through the press : "The Looking
Glass , " his text being Exodus , 38 : viii :
"And he made the laver of brass , and
the foot of it was of brass , of the
looking glasses o1 the women as-
sembling. , ,
. We often hear about the gospel in
John and the gospel in Luke , and the
gospel in Matthew ; but there is just as
surely a gospel of Moses , and a gospel
of Jeremiah , and a gospel of David. In
other words Christ is as certain to be
found in the Old Testament as in the
When the Israelites were marching
through the wilderness , they carried
their church with them. They called
it the tabernacle. It was a pitched
tent ; very costly , very beautiful. The
frame work was made of forty-eight
boards of acacia wood set in sockets of
silver. The curtains of the place were
purple , and scarlet , and blue , and fine
linen , and were hung with moat artistid
loops. Tile candlestick of the tabernacle -
nacle had shaft , and branch , and howl
of solid gold , and the figures of
cherubim that stood there had wings
cf gold ; and there were lamps of gold ,
and snuffers of gold ; so that scepticism
has sometimes asked : Where did all
that precious material come from ? It
is not my place to furnish the precious
stones , it is only to tell that they were
I wish now more especially to speak
of the laver that was built in the midst
of that ancient tabernacle. It was a
great basin from which the priests
washed their hands and feet. The
water came dowp from the basin in
spouts and passed away after the
cleansing. This laver or basin was
made out of the looking glasses of the
women who had frequented the tabernacle -
nacle , and who had made these their
contribution to the furniture. These
looking glasses were not made of glass ,
but they were brazen. The brass was
of a very superior quality , and polished
until it reflected easily the features of
those who looked into it. So that this
laver of looking glasses spoken of in
my text did double work ; it not only
furnished the water in which the
priests washed themselves , but it also ,
on its shining , polished surfaeepointed
out the spots of pollution on the face
which needed ablution. Now , my
Christian friends , as everything in
that ancient tabernacle was suggestive
of religious truth , and for the most
part positively symbolical of truth , I
shall take that laver of looking glasses
spoken of in the text as all suggestive
of the gospel , which first shows us our
sins as in a mirror , and then washes
them away by divine ablution.
Oh , happy day , happy day ,
When Jesus washed my sins away l
I have to say that this is the only look-
lug glass in which a man can see himself -
self as he is There are some mirrors
that flatter the features , and make you
look better than you are. Then there
are other mirrors that distort your
features , and make you look worse
than you are ; but I want to tell you
that this looking glass of the gospel
shows a man just as he is. When the
priests entered the ancient tabernacle
one glance at the burnished side of this
laver showed them their need of
cleansing ; so this gospel shows the
soul its need of divine washing. "All
have sinned , and come short of the
glory of God. " That is one showing.
"All we , like sheep , have gone astray. "
That is another showing. "From
the crown of the bead to the
sole of the foot there is no
health in us. " That is another
showing. The world calls these , defects -
fects , imperfections , or eccentricities ,
or erratic behavior , or "wild oats , " or
"high living ; " but the gospel calls
them sin , transgression , filth-the
abominable thing that God hates. It
was just one glance at that mirror
that made Paul cry out , "Oh , wretched
man that I am , who shall deliver me
from the body of this death ? " and that
made David cry out , "Purge me with
hyssop , and I shall be clean ; " and that
made Martin Luther cry out , "Oh , my
sins , my sus ! " I am not talking about
bad habits. You and I do not need
any Bible to tell us that bad habits
are wrong , that blasphemy and evil
speaking are wrong. But I am talking -
ing of a sinful nature , the source of all
bad thoughts , as well as of all bad
actions. The apostle Paul calls their
roll in the first chapter of Romans.
They are a regiment of death encamp-
lug around every heart , holding it in a
tyranny from which nothing but tile.
grace of God can deliver it.
If you could catch a glimpse of your
natural heart before God , you would
cry out in amazement and alarm. The
very first thing this gospel does is to
cut down our pride and self-sufficiency.
If a man does not feel his lost and
ruined condition before God , he does
not want any gospel. I think the
reason that there are so few conversions -
sions in this day is because the tendency -
dency of the preaching is to make men
believe that they are pretty good any-
how-quite clever , only wanting a little
'fixing up-a few touches of divine
grace , and then you will be all right ;
instead of proclaiming the broad , deep
truth that Payson and Whitefield
thundered to a race trembling on the
verge of infinite and eternal disaster.
"Now , " says some one , "can this really
'be true ? Have we all gone astray ? Is
there no good in us ? " In Hampton
court I saw a room where the four
walls , were covered with looking
. a.a .
glasses ; and it made no difference which
way you looked , you saw yourself.
And so it is in this gospel
of Christ. If you once step
within its full precincts , you will
find your whole character reflected ;
every feature of moral deformity ,
every spot of moral taint. If I understand -
stand the word of God , its first announcement -
nouncement is that we are lost. I care
not , my brother , how magnificently
you may have been born , or what may
have been your heritage or ancestry ,
you are lost by reason of sin. "But , "
you say. "what is the use of all this-
of showing a man's faults when he
can't get' rid of them ? " None ! "What
was the use of that burnished surface
to this laver of looking glasses spoken
of in the text , if it only showed the
spots on the countenance and the need
of washing , and there was nothing to
wash with ? " Glory be to God , I find
that this laver of looking glasses was
filled with fresh water every morning ,
and the priest no sooner looked on its
burnished side and saw his need of
cleansing , than he washed and was
clean-glorious type of the gospel of
my Lord Jesus , that first shows a man
his sin , and then washes it all away !
I want you to notice that this laver
in which the priest washed-the laver
of looking glasses-was filled with
fresh water 'every morning. The ser
vants of the tabernacle brought th
water in buckets and poured it intc
this laver. So it is with the gospel of
Jesus Christ ; it has a fresh salvation
every day. It is not a stagnant pee ]
filled with accumulated corruptions. It .
is living water , which is brought from
the eternal rock to wash away the
sins of yesterday-of one moment ago.
"Oh , " says some one"Iuasa Christian
twenty years ago ! " That does not
mean anything to me. What are you
now ? We are not talking , my brother -
er , about' pardon ten years ago , but
about pardon now-a fresh salvation.
Suppose a time of war should come ,
and I could show the government that
I had been loyal to it twelve years ago ,
would that excuse me from taking
an oath of allegiance now ? Suppose
your ask me about my physical health ,
and I should say I was well fifteen
years ago-that does not say how
I am now. The gospel of Jesus Christ
comes and demands present allegiance ,
present fealty , present moral health ;
and yet how many Christians there are
seeking to live entirely in past experience -
perience , who seem to have no experience -
ience of present mercy and pardon !
When I was on the sea , and there came
up a great storm , and officers and crew
and passengers all thought we must
go down , I began to think of my
life insurance , and whether , if I were
taken away , my family would be cared
for ; and then I thought , is the premium -
mium paid up ? and I said , yes. Then I
felt comfortable. Yet there are men
who , in religious matters , are looking
back to past insurance. They have let
it run out , and they have nothing for
the present , no hope nor pardon-
falling back on the old insurance
policy of ten , twenty , thirty
years ago. If I want to find out
hour a friend feels toward me , do I
go to the drawer and find some old yellow -
low letters written to me ten or twelve
years ago ? No ; I go to the letter that
was stamped day before yesterday in
the postoffice , and I find how he feels
toward me. It is not in regard to old
communications we liadt with Jesus
Christ , it is communications we have
now. Are we not in sympathy with
him this morning , and is he not in
sympathy with us ? Do not pond so
much of your time in hunting in the
wardrobe for the old , worn out shoes
of Christian profession. Come this
morning and take the glittering robe
of Christ's righteousness from the
Savior's hand. You say you were
plunged in the fountain of the Savior's
mercy a quarter of a century ago.
That is nothing to me ; I tell you to
wash now in this laver of looking
glasses and have your soul made clean.
When our civil war had passed the
government of the United States made
proclamation of pardon to the common
soldiery in the confederate army , but
not to the chief soldiers. The gospel
of Christ does not act in that way. It
says pardon for all , but especially for
the chief of sinners. I do not now
think of a single passage that says a
small sinner may be saved , but I do
think of passages that say a great sinner -
ner may be saved. If there be sins
cnly faintly hued , just a little tinged ,
so faintly colored that you can hardly
see them , there is no special pardon
promised in the Bible for those sins ;
but if they be glaring , red like crimson -
son , then they shall be as snow. Now ,
my brother , I do not state this to put a
premium upon great iniquity. Imerely
say this to encourage that man , whoever -
ever he is , who feels he is so far gone
from God there is no mercy for him. I
want to tell him there is a good chance.
Why , Paul was a murderer ;
he assisted at the execution
of Stephen ; and yet Paul was
saved. The dying thief did everything
bad. The dyinge thief was saved.
Richard Baxter swore dreadfully ; but
the grace of God met him and Richard
Baxter was saved. It is a vast layer.
Go and tell everybody to come and
wash in it. Let them come up from
the penitentiaries and wash away their
crimes. Let them come up from the
alms houses and wash away their pov-
erty. Let them come up from their
graves and wash away their death. If
there be any one so worn out in sin
that he can not get up to the laver ,
you will take hold of his head and put
your arms around him ; and I will take
hold of his feet , and we , will plunge
him in this glorious Bethesda , the vast
laver of God's mercy and salvation. In
Solomon's temple there were ten laver.
and one molten sea-this great reservoir -
voir in the midst of the temple filled
with water-these lavers and this molten -

branch , and oxen , and lions , and cher-
ubim. This fountain of God's mercy
is a vaster molten sea than that. It h

with tha wood of the cross ; not' with
cherubim , but with the wings of the
Holy Ghost ; and around its great rim
all the race may come and wash in the
molten sea. I was reading the other
day of Alexander the Great , who ,
when lie was very thirsty and standing -
ing at the head of his army , had
brought to him a cup of water. Be
looked off upon leis host and said , "I
can not drink this , my men are all
thirity"rand ; lie dashed it to the ground.
Blessed be God ! there is enough water
for all the host-enough for captains
and host , "Whosoever will may come
and take of the water of life freely"-
a laver broad as the earth , high as the
heavens , and deep as hell.
Oh , my dear friends , l wish I could
coax you to accept this gospel. If you
could just take one look into this laver
of looking glasses spoken of in the text ,
you would begin now spiritual ablu-
tion. The love of Christ-I dare not ,
toward the close of my sermon , begin
to tell about it. The love of Christ !
Do not talk to me about a mountain ; it
is higher than that. Do not talk to me
about a sea ; it is deeper than that.
An artist in his dreams saw such a
splendid dream of the' transfiguration
of Christ that he awoke and seized his
pencil , and said , "Let me paint this
and die. " Oh , I have seen the glories
of Christ ! I have beheld something of
the beauty of that great sacrifice on
Calvary , and I have sometimes felt I
would be willh g to give anything if I
might just sketch before you the wonders -
ders of that sacrifice. I would like to
do it while I live , and I would like to do
it when I die. "Let me paint this and
die ! " He comes along weary and
worn , his face wet with tears ,
his ' brow crimson with blood ,
and he lies down on Calvary for
you. No. I mistake. Nothing was as
comfortable as that. A stone on Calvary -
vary would have made a soft pillow for
the dying head of ClirWt. Nothing so
comfortable as that. IIe does not lie
down to die ; lie stands up to die ; his
spiked hands outspread as if to embrace -
brace a world. Oh , what a hard end
for those feet that had traveled all
over Judea on ministries of m. rcy !
What a hard end for those hands that
had wiped away tears and bound up
broken hearts ! Very hard , oh dying
.Lamb of God ! and yet there are those
who know it and who do not lve thee.
, They say , "What is all that to me ?
What if he does weep , and grosn. and
die ? I don't want him. " Lord Jesus
Christ , they will not help thee
down from the cross ! The soldiers
will come and tear thee down from
the cross , and put their aims around
thee and lower thee into the tomb ; but
they will not help. They see nothing
to move them. Oh dying Christ ! turn
on them thine eyes of affection now ,
and see if they will not change their
And that is all for you ! Oh , can you
not love him ? Come around this layer ,
old and young. It is so burnished you
can see your sins ; and so deep you can
wash them all away. Oh , mourner ,
here bathe your bruised soul ; and sick
one , here cool your hot temples in this
laver. Peace ! Do not cry any more ,
dear soul ! Pardon for all thy sins ,
comfort for all thy afflictions. The
black cloud that hung thundering over
Sinai has floated above Calvary , and

A custom that has existed for several -

some towns on the lower Rhine. On

with the chosen girl , and her only
during the entire year. The fees
flow into the public poor-box.
Burglars lately broke into the house
of an old gentleman in Paris , and
after helping themselves to the silver
and valuables gave him a lecture on
his wickedness in hoarding up capital
which belongs to society in general.
The papers in telling of the robbery
spoke of a bundle of securities worth
0,000 francs which the thieves had
overlooked , and that night they
called again at the house , demanded
the securities and carried them off.
Professor Leslie says that water , at

laws of compression beyond a depth
