WEDNESDAY EVENING, JAN. 7, 1880,
Rebert Ceilyer at Cooper Union.
The Rev. Rebert Cellycr, of the church
of the Messiafr, delivered his lecture en
"Clear Grit" in the great hall of Cooper
Institute Saturday evening. The subject
was net new, but he told many new stories
and gave fresh illustrations of what he be
lieves arc the principles of a true life. He
Clear unt, as l understand it and pro
pose te speak of it te-night, is the best that
there is in a man, blossoming into the best
he can de in as sweet and true a fashion as
a rose blossoms en a bush or a bird sings
in a tree. It is that noble quality in a man
or a woman which could never give way
except in a true way and for a geed reason.
It is the power te walk barefoot ever the
flints that lie along the right line of life
rather than te go through green pastures
and by still waters that deflect it. It is the
power te say no te what may seem te be a
multitude of angels if they wanfc te coun
sel you away from your downright loyalty
te instant duty. There is a false and a
true grit, as there is in all great and true
things in creation, and we need te knew
the one from the ether as the prime con
dition of being true ourselves. It is never
base or mean either in its nature or tenden
cies. But in order that it shall come te be
a genuine part of our life it must have its
root in a certain austerity and self-denial.
After the power te save yourself comes the
power te give yourself the power te help
ethers, no matter what it costs you, when
the thing faces you as a clear duty. When
a man has these two things in his life, the
power te save himself and the power te
give himself, lie sees all at once something
te be done that he ought te de, and he
never steps te count the cost, but as we
say, he pitches right in and does it.
Having made an exposition of what I
believe te be the principle, I want te make
a few simple applications that will go right
home te your own lives every day, for we
can see every day what kind of "tit wc arc
made of, and we can show it by these tests
that I speak ef: (1) Te de a geed honest
day's work ; (2) te have a geed home and
take care of it ; (3) te lese no time, but go
ahead and see te these things while the
bloom of our life is in our hearts, and (4)
te be content.
And I put the power te de an honest
diy's work first, because eight-and-twenty
years' expci iencc in the factory and at the
forge, as well as such light as comes te me
from my present profession, convinces mc
beyond all question that this lies at the
root of all true living. But it is just what
great numbers of men try te dodge, as if
they felt that this thing means te get the
most money possible for the least work
possible, and very often the poeiest, tee ;
and that the best success in this world is
that which comes through what wc call
geed luck. Seme young men begin their
life bewildered by the opportunities that
open before them te make a fortune.
There is no such deadly need te de some
thing solid and steady the moment they
are out of school as there is in poorer coun
tries, and se they coquette with the
chances that seem as thick as blackberries.
Te get along, they try this, and then that,
and then wait for something te turn up.
New, wc arc never te forget that Mr.
Micawbcr, after going en his luck for all
these years, waiting for something te turn
up, had te strip at last and turn something
up for himself. He failed entirely te de
anything until he began te de something
in dead earnest ; and every dollar he made
when he did begin te succeed was a draft
honestly indorsed by his brain and muscle,
and dug out of the solid geld of his own
manhood. Se waiting for something te
turn up is the greatest mistake, I think,
that a young man can make who wants te
show his grit.
Mr. Smiles, in one of his books, tells a
story of a man in the last century who
undertook te make a steam engine. He
succeeded se far as you could see in mak
ing a very capital engine indeed. The
lever lifted te a charm, the piston answer
ed exactly, the wheels turned beautifully,
nothing could be better se far ; but when it
came te be fairly tried there was one draw
back the moment you taekled anything
te it, it steed stock still. On its own hook
it would work beautifully, turn its own
wheels faultlessly ; but the moment you
wanted it te lift a pound beside, then lever
and piston and wheels struck work, and as
it was made in an age and a country in
which te de nothing was te be counted as
a gentleman, the thing was called Evans's
New, who doesn't knew numbers of
young men whose actions exactly resemble
that engine ? "What little they de for them
selves. Yeu can find no fault se far with
their motion, and they arc polished te per
fection, especially in these parts that arc
brass and steel, but they would net raise n
blister en their hands te save their souls.
Their one motto is te take care of number
one ; and in this world they often come te
one of three things the charity of their
friends, the county poerhousc. or, the sad
dest of all things, ladies and gentlemen, I
have seen them go down, down, until they
get te Washington te hunt for an office
that they cannot fill and cat the bread they
cannot earn. This is the first grand proof
a man can give of his want of grit te de
nothing in particular or te come as near as
he can te his own idea of a gentleman by
dodging everything that is net ca?y and
The question. What makes a gentleman'.'
is net an easy one te answer, but between
such a man as that and a geed blacksmith
or ploughman, or weed-chopper, who puts
all his manhood into his work, there can
be no comparison. The hard-handed me
chanic is beyond all telling the truer gen
tleman, as well as the better man. And
in the geed time coming everybody will
say se, that has a right te be anybody.
Honest work well done is the first thing
in clear grit. That docs net mean, how
ever, merely te work hard, because te
work hard honestly is mere essential than
te weik hard at anything. I had a shop
mate once when I was a young man who
was just as geed a blacksmith when he
did his best as any man need be, but it
seems te mc new that he was the most in
genious fellow at getting up any sort of a
lie in iron that I ever saw. New a man
like that may work hard, but, en the
whole, the harder the worse, for he just
works hard at lying ; and se peer Jack
stands te mc for a great many hardwork
ing men. It is no matter where they are
found, or what they de ; they may net
work in iron as Jack did, but they are all
forgers for all that, if they are only inge
nious for dishonesty, and make then
money by make-believes. They show you
some iron gates in the Kensington mu
seum in Londen that were made by a
blacksmith ever 200 years age. I never
heard of the man until I saw the gates,
and if he had never done that piece of
work I never should have heard of him.
He was only a blacksmith ; he did that
work with his own rough hands, but he
did it se honestly and se well that they
preserve the gates te this day as one of
the wonders of England, and it (Iecs your
heart geed te leek at them.
The second thing I said, is a geed
home ; and that, of course, presupposes
that indispensable preliminary te all geed
homes, a geed wife and a geed husband;
because I sincerely believe that there are
a geed many men who marry but don't
have a wife, and a great many women who
marry but don't get a husband, and they
never find it out until the mistake is
beyond all remedy, except that of going
te Chicago te get a divorce. And the way
that comes about is that a great many
young women are only anxious te get all
the accomplishments. They don't mean
by that, however, hew te make whole
some bread and roast a piece of beef, and
boil a potatee, and darn a stocking, and
make a shirt and iron one, and keep a
home smelling as sweet as wild roses and
shining like a new silver dollar ; but hew
te de tatting and draw wonderful shep
herdesses with pink eyes, and talk impos
sible French, and in such a way, I notice,
that Frenchmen themselves cannot under
stand it, and discourse music se difficult
as te make you remember Jehnsen's grim
joke, for is is related of him that having
been taken te a great concert he showed
some lethargy in regard te the apprecia
tion of the playing ; his companion said
te him : "Dr. Jehnsen, that is very diffi
cult music." Said Dr. Jehnsen. "Yes:
and I wish it was se difficult that it was
New that is what a great many call an
education. All the accomplishments, ex
cept these that are indispensable te a geed
wife the young woman gets, and then she
gets married. And the young man very
often gets an education that is just about
as delectable te lit him for a husband. We
call it " sewing his wild eats." The worse
of it I dare net tell ; it turns him away
from all that is domestic and delicate and
unspeakably sacred in a geed home, and
teaches him hew te play billiards instead
of reading books, te prefer cards te all
ether pictures, and te be mero familiar
with the inside of the hells of this city
than the church. Then he gees into soci
ety scented and curled ; meets the young
woman with all the accomplishments ; be
lieves her te be the exception te all her
sex in angelic excellence ; gives her what
heart he has left, and se the match is made
and they arc wedded wife and husband se
long as they both will live.
That, in the vast majority of instances,
is like a wedding we had once in l ork erk
shire. As the man came out of church
with his bride he met an old companion,
who said : "There, lad, I wish thee much
joy ; thou's gotten te t'end of all thy
trouble. It was very geed te be assured
of that, and the bridegroom went en his
way rejoicing ; but by and by he found he
had get married without getting a wife. It
was a bad job ; and se when he met his
old companion en the street one day he
said with a very long face : "I thought
thou told me as I came out of Gruiselcy
church that I'd gotten t'end of all me
trouble." "I did tell thee se," said his
old friend, quietly, " but I didn't tell thee
A geed home can no mere bloom out of
such a life as that than a damask rose can
bloom en an iceberg. It is a tyrant and a
slave, or else two slaves. It is two strings
full of nothing but harsh discords con
stantly under the bow of the daily life. I
was once at a meeting in which a noble
woman's rights advocate was speaking
about the essential equality of the sexes,
when, te my astonishment she looked
right st mc and said : "Rebert Ceilyer,
I hope when you marry a man and woman,
you de net ask the woman te say that she
will obey the man." I thought for a mo
ment of telling that story that illustrates
se wen wnat a woman will say
te get the man wants, of a
woman who declared she would
never premise te obey would get
round it by some means. And the minis
ter who was te marry them heard of it.
The weid came in his service, and the
woman followed the service until she came
te the word, and then she was seized with
a very bad fit of coughing. "Take
your time, my dear," the geed man
said : " Ne sort of hurry ; let us
begin again; and she broke down
just in the same place. " We will try
once mere," he said, for ministers arc
very patient ; but once mere she broke
down, and then he said : " Madam, it is
clear you cannot go through with the ser
vice, and I cannot marry you," but that
instant she lifted her voice and said "obey"
with an emphasis that almost took his
breath. I thought of telling that story ;
but what I did say was " Madam, I never
de ask any woman te say that she will
obey the man, and let the man go tree, be
cause one of the best women I ever knew
said she would, and never did obey, be
yond what was fair and right."
But chance and change make no differ
ence en the golden wedding day ; the
glory of the maiden at twenty cannot be
seen by reason of the glory which excels
in the geed old wife of seventy.
The next thing I consider indispensable
te a geed home is a house full of children.
The figures show that the American who
has been longest en the soil is losing
ground, and the new-comer from all the
world ever is taking the place. Men who
were willing te die for their country arc
net willing te live for it ; and geed women
who could work their fingers te the bone
te defend the land, arc net new willing te
give sons and daughters te people it. In
my great old mother-land the homes are
full of children. I speak for that which
ought te give any man courage when I say
that wherever the sin of keeping the home
empty or one-half full may hide itself, it is
the most fatal blew that any man can strike
either at his own soul er the soul of his
country. Fer it is net merely what he
may take from the measure of life, but
what he may take from its hope and joy.
What would have been the result if a sin
like this had been hidden away once in a
secret chamber in Stratford-upon-Aven ;
or in the old hut where Burns was born ;
or in a home down in Virginia where
Geerge Washington was born ; or in that
peer cabin in Kentucky where a child was
baptized by the name of Abraham Lin
coln ; or in a thousand homes besides that
were out of sight then as ours arc new, but
are new lighted and set en the shining
summits of the world.
Then another thing is that a man should
make sure as seen as he can that
this is as true as gospel, and conduct him
self accordingly. It is a great mistake in
a young man te think that he can wait as
long as he will before he begins te gather
these things abut him that I have tried
te describe a true wife, a geed home and
such a family as he can find in his heart ;
and then, when he has made his fortune,
and can keep a wife and family in a cer
tain social station with all the luxuries of
life, he has done his whole duty. If you
ask him why he does this, he will tell you
he cannot de any better that he cannot
ask a woman te marry him out of a
mansion, and go live in a cabin ; such a
woman is net fit for a peer man's wife.
But it is time a man finds out ever se many
secrets en this question. First, he finds
that she who is net fit for a peer man's
wife, as a rule, is net fit te be any man's
wife, especially in a land like ours, where
no man knows hew seen he may be peer.
But suppose he waits until she is thirty
and he thirty-five, and then marries the
of his choice. One of the first
things she tells him is that she would have
jumped at him ten years age if he had
said the word ; she wanted him te say se
dreadfully, and almost broke her heart be
cause he didn't. I think the wisest thing
I ever did was te marry en 73 cents a day
and find myself, before I was twenty-four.
Very sad is the fate of the man who hears
the voice say in his Eden, at twenty-two,
"Here is the woman I have made for
thee," and replies, "I cannot take her yet
for ten or twelve years te come." While
a man is saving money he is wasting life.
Dr. Stark, the register-irencral of Scotland,
has shown from statistics that from the
age of twenty te twenty-five twice as many
bachelors die as married men. I was ap
palled when I read this, at the risk I had
run in staying single until I was twenty
four. The average for single women is a
little better, and it ought te be, because
they are net the greatest sinners, for they
cannot always de as they like.
Se, young man, if you have been waiting,
show your grit and go right away and
pep the question, and this lecture will
prove the best sermon you ever heard in
It is betli the curse and blessing of
our American life that we are never quite
content. We all expect te go somewhere
before we die, and have a better time
when we get there than we can have at
home. The bane of our life is discontent.
Wc say we will work se long, and then wc
will enjoy ourselves. But we find it just
as Thackeray has expressed it. " When I
was a boy," he said, "I wanted some taffy
it was a shilling I hadn't one. When
I was a man, I had a shilling, but I didn't
want any taffy.
But I say net one word against that
splendid discontent that all the time makes
a man strike for something better. I like
this idea that every boy born in America
dreams of being president. Ne man has
any right te be content net te be his best
and net te de better te-morrow than he is
doing te-day. But all that will come by
keeping clese te a manly and dutiful life.
While wc are going steadily along te what
ever future awaits us,the grandest thing
wc can de is te feci sure that what we are
doing for a day's work, with all that we de
besides, is just the most blessed thing se far
as we can de and that we arc very likely hav
inj: the best time that can ever come te
our life ; that this work and wife and
home and children, all they arc and all
they mean, beats the world. The saddest
thing in our life is our discontent when we
ought te be most contented. It is our
birthright te get the geed of life as wc go
along, in these simple and pure things that
te all tiuc man and womanhood aic like
rain and sunshine te an apple tree. But
when we will net believe this, and dream
that the best of our life is te come when
we have made our fortune, then Ave sell
our birthright for a mess of pottage ; but
worse than Esau, the pottage gives us the
dyspepsia, and then we lese the geed of
birthright and pottage together.

Covered With Scabs and Seres.
Messrs, Weeks & Petter. I commenced tn
use your Cuticura last duly. Have only used
one large ami one small box, and one bottle of
the Reselvent. My lace and head and some
parts of my body were amest raw. My head
was covered with scabs and seics. and my suf
fering was fearful.
I had tried everything I had heard of in the
East and West. My ease was considered a vury
bad one. One very skillful phvsici.in said he
would rather net treat it, and some of them
think new I am enlycured temporarily. I think
net, for I have net a particleef Salt Rheum about
me, and my case is considered wonderful. My
case has been the means ef.sdlinga great many
ofyeur Cuticura Remedies in this part of the
country. Kcspcctfiillv yours,
