OPEN MYDAFiKSAYINGS ON AHAEP Reasons for the Good Suffering, AYhile the Wicked Trosper. SOME ANSWERS TO A GENERAL QUESTION JSrECIAl TILEGBJU TO TIM DISPATCS.1 . Brooklyn, February 24. The audience that crowded the immense auditorium of the Brooklyn Tabernacle and the adjoining lecture room and parlors to-day united in singing: Sun of my soul, Thou Sartor dear. It is not night if Thou be near. Dr. Talmage preached on the subject: "Dark Sayings on a Harp." Text, xlix Psalm of David, verse 4: "I will open my dark sayings on a harp." The world iS full of the inexplicable, the , impassable, the unfathomable, the insnr- mountablc. "We cannot go three steps in any direction without coming up against a hard wall of mystery, riddles, paradoxes, " profundities, labyrinths, problems that we cannot solve, hieroglyphics that we cannot decipher, anagrams we cannot spell out, sphinxes that will not speak. For that reason, David in my text proposed to take up some of these somber and dark things and try to set them to sweet music: "I will open my datk sayings on a harp." ' So I look upon society and find people in un happy conjunction of circumstances and they do not know what it means and they have a right to ask, why is this? and why is that? and I think I will be doing a good work by trying to explain some of these strange things and make yon more content with your lot, and I shall only be answering Questions that have often been asked me. or that we have all asked our selves, while I try to set these mysteries to music and open my dark sayings on a harp. A QTJXSTIOX THAT IS OFTEN ASKED. Interrogation tho first: Why does God take out of this world those who are usefal and whom we cannot spare and leave alive and in good health so many who are only a nuisance or a positive injury to the world? I thought I would begin with the very toughest of all the seeming inscrutables. Many of the most use ful men and women die at SO or 40 years of cge, while you often find useless people alive at 60 and TO and eO. John Careless wrote to Brad ford, who was soon to be put to death, saying: "Why doth God suffer me and such other cater pillars to live that can do nothing but consume the alms of the church, and take away so many worthy workmen in the Lord's Mneyard?" Similar questions are often asked. Here are two meu. The one is a noble char acter and a Christian man; he chooses for life Time companion one who has been tenderly reared, and she is worthy of him and he is worthy ot her; as merchant, or farmer, or pro fessional man, or mechanic, or artist, he toils to educate and rear his children; he is succeeding, but he has not yet established for his family a I nil competency; he seems absolutely indispen sable to that household, but one day before he has paid off the mortgage on his bonse he is coming home througli a strong northeast w ind and a chill strikes through nim, and four days of pneumonia end his earthly career, and the vile and children go into a struggle for shelter and food. His next-door neighbor is a man who, though strong and well, lets his wife sup port him; he is round at the grocery store or some xeneral loahng place in the evenings while his wife sews; his boys are imitating his example, and lounge and swagger and swear; all the use that man is in that bouse is to rave because the coffee is cold when he comes to a late breakfast, or to say cutting things about his wife's looks when he furnishes nothing for her wardrobe. The best thing that could hap Ten to that family would bo that man's funeral; out he declines to die; he lives on and on and on. So we have all noticed that many of tho useful are early cut off while the parasites of .. society have great vital tenacity. A HOPEPUX. GUESS. I take up this dark saying on my harp and give three or four thrums on the string in the way of surmising and hopeful guess. Perhaps the useful man was taken ont of the world, be cause he and his family were so constructed that they could not have endured some great prosperity that might have been just ahead, and they altogether might have gone down in the vortex of worldliness which every year swallows up 10,000 households. And so be went while ho was humble and consecrated, and they were by the severities of life kept close to Christ and fitted for usefulness here and high seats in heaven: and when they meet at last be fore the throne, they will acknowledge that though the furnace was hot, it purified them, and prepared them for an eternal career or glory and reward for which no other kind of life could have fitted them. On the other hand, the useless man lived on to 60, or 60, or TO years, because all the ease he ever can have he must have in this world, and you ought not, therefore, begrudge him his earthly longevity. In all the ages there has not a single loaier ever enterea ncaven. There is . no place there for him to hang around. Not in the temples, fur they are full of the most vig orous, alert and rapturous worship. Not on the river bank, for that is the place where the con- Suerors recline. Not in the gates, because lere are multitudes entering, and we are told that at each of the 12 gates, there is an angel, and that celestial guard would not allow the place to be blocked np with idlers. If the good and useful go early, rejoice for them that they have so soon got through with human life, which at best is a struggle. And if the useless and the bad stay, rejoice that they may be out in the world's fresh air a good many years be fore their final incarceration. SOEBOWCPOlf SOBBOW. Interrogation the second: Why do so many good people have so much trouble: Bickness, bankruptcy, persecution, tho three black vultures sometimes putting their fierce beaks into one set of jangled nerves? I think now of of a good friend I once had. He was a conse crated Christian man, an elder in the church, and as polished a Christian gentleman as ever walked Broadway. First his general health gave out and he hobbled around on a cane, an old man at 40. After a while paralysis struck him. Having by poor health been compelled suddenly to quit business, be lost what prop erty ho had. Then his beautiful daughter died. Then a son became hopelessly demented. Another son, splendid of mind and command ing of presence, revived that he would take care of his father's household, bat under the swoop of yellow fever at Fernandma, Fla., he suddenly expired. So you know good men and women who have had enough troubles, you think, to crush 50 people. No worldly philoso phy could take such a trouble and set it to music, or play it on violin or flute or dulcimer or sackbut, bnt I daro to open that dark saying on a gospel harp. You wonder that very consecrated people have trouble? Did you ever know any very consecrated man or woman who had not had great trouble? Never. It was through their , troubles sanctified that tney were made very good. If you find anywhere in this city a man who has now and always has had perfect health, and never lost a child, and has always been popular, and never had business struggle or misfortune, who is distinguished for good ness, pull your wire for a district messenger and send me word, and I will drop everything and go right away to look at him. There never has been a man like that, and never will be. Who are those arrogant, self-conceited crea tures who move about without sympathy for others and who think more of a St. Bernard dog, or an Alderncy cow, or a Southdown sheep, or a Berkshire nig than of a man? They never had any trouble or the trouble was never sanctified. GBADT7ATES OP WOE. Who aro those men who listen with moist eye as you tell them of suffering, and who have a pathos in their voice and a kindness in their manner and an excuse or an alleviation for those gone astray? They are the men who have graduated at the Boyal Academy of Trouble, and they have the diploma written in wrinkles on their own countenances. My! mji What heartaches they had! What tears they have w eptl What injustice they have suffered! The mightiest influcnce,for purification and salvation is" trouble. No diamond fit for a crown until it is cut No wheat fit for bread until it is ground. There are only three things that can break off a chain a hammer, a file or a fire; and trouole is all three of them. The greatest writers, orators and reformers get much of their force from trouble. What ppve to Washington Irving that ex quisite tenderness and pathos which will make his books favorites while the En glish language continues to be written and spoken ? An early heartbreak that he never once mentioned; and when, SO years after the death of Matilda Hoffman, who was to have been his bride, her father picked up a piece of embroidery and said: This is a piece of poor Matilda's workmanship," Washington Irving sauk from -hilarity into silence and walked away. Out of that lifetime grief the great author dipped his pen's mightiest reinforce ment. "Calvin's Institutes of .Religion," than which a more, wonderful book was never writ ten by human hand, was begun by the author at 25 years of age, because ol the persecution by Francis, King of France. Faraday toiled for all time on a salary of 80 a year and can dles. As every brick of the wall of Babylon was stamped with the letter N, standing for Nebuchadnezzar, so every part of the temple ot Christian achievement is stamped with the letter T, standing for trouble. TIIE KNIGHTHOOD OP GOD. When in olden time a man was to be honored with knighthood, he was struck with the flat of the sword. But those who have come to the honor of knighthood in the kingdom of God were first struck not with the flat of the sword but with the keen edge of the ctmeter. To bnild his magnificence of character, Paul could not have spared one lash, one prison, one ston ing, one anathema, one poisonous viper from the hand, one shipwreck What is true of in dividuals is true of nations. The horrors of the American revolution gave this country this side of the Mississippi river to .independence, and the conflict between England and Franco gave the most of this country west of the Mississippi to the United States. France owned it, but Napoleon, fearing that En gland would take it, practically made a present to the United States for he re ceived only 515.000,000 of Louisiana, Mis souri, Arkansas, Kansas, Nebraska. Iowa, Minnesota, Colorado, Dakota, Montana, Wyom ing and the Indian Territory. Out of the firo of the American revolution came this country cast of the Mississippi, out of the European war came that west of the Mississippi river. The British empire rose to its present over towering grandeur through gunpowderplot, and Guy Fawkes' conspiracy, and North ampton insurrection, and Walter Balcigh's be heading, and Bacon's briberv, and Cromwell s dissolution of Parliament, and the battles of Edgo Hill, and Grantham, and Newberry, and Marston Moor, and Naseby, and Dunbar, and Sedgemoor, and execution of Charles the First, and London plague, and London fire, and London insurrection, and Ryehouse plot, and the vicissitudes ot centuries. So the earth itself, before it could become appropriate and beautiful residence for the hu man family had, according to geology, to bo washed by universal deluge, and scorched ana made incandescent by universal fires, and pounded by sledge-hammer of icebergs, and wrencned oy earinquajces mat spin couuucuis, and shaken by volcanoes that tossed mountains, and passed through the catastrophes of thousands of years before Paradise became possible, aud tho groves could shake out their green banners and the first garden pour its carnage of color between the Gihon and the Hiddekel. Trouble a good thing for the rocks, a good thing for nations, as well as a good ming lor individuals, so wnen you jjuni against me with a sharp interrogation point WHY DO THE GOOD SUFFEB? I open the dark saying on a harp and. though I can neither play an organ,uor cornet,norhaut boy, nOr bugle, norclarionet, I have taken some lessons on the gospel harp, and if you would like to hear me I will play you these: "All things work together tor good to those who love God." Now no chastening for the present seemeth to be joyous, but grievous; neverthe less afterward it yieldeth all possible fruits of righteousness unto them which are exercised thereby." "Weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning." What a sweet thing is a harp, and I wonder not that in Wales, the country of my ancestors, the harp has become the national instrument, and that they have festivals where great prizes are of fered in tho competition between harp and harp; or that weird Sebastian Erard was much of his time bent over this chorded and vibrating triangle, and was not satisfied until he had given it a compass of six octaves from E to E with all the semi-tones, or that when King Saul was demented the son of Jesse came be fore him and putting his fingers among .the charmed strings of the harp played the devil out of the crazed monarch, or that in heaven there shall be harpers harping with their harps. So yon will not blame me for opening the dark saying on the gospel harp. , Yourharps, jetremblinjr saints, Down lrom the willows take; Loud to the praise oflove divine Bid every every string awake! Interrelation third: Why did a good God let sin and trouble come into the world when He might have kept them out? My reply is. He had a good reason. He had reasons that He has never given us. He had reasons which He could no more make us understand in our finite state than the father starting ont on somegreat and elaborate enterprise could make the 2-year-old child in its armed chair comprehend it. One was -to demonstrate what grandeur of char acter may be achieved on earth by conquering evil. Had there been no evil to conquer and no trouble to console, then this universe would never have known an Abraham or a Moses or a Joshua or an Ezekicl or a Paul or a Christ or a Washington or a John Milton or a John How ard, and A MILLION VICTORIES which have been gained by the consecrated spirits of all ages wonld never have been gained. Had there been no battle there would have been no victory. Nine-tenths of the anthems of heaven would never have been sung. Heaven could never have been a thousandth part of the heaven that it is. I will not say that 1 am glad that sin and sorrow did enter, but I do say that I am glad that after God has given all his reasons to an assembled universe be will be more honored than if sin and sorrow had never entered, and that the un. fallen celestials will be outdone and will put down their trumpets to listen and it will be in heaven when those who have conquered sin and sorrow shall enter, as it would be in a small singing sehool on earth if Thalberg and Gottschalk and Wagner and Beethoven and Rheinberger and Schumann should all at once enter. The im mortals that have been chanting ten thousand years before the throne will say, as they close their librettos: "Oh, if we could only sing like that!" But God will say to those who havn never fallen and consequently have not been redeemed: "You must be silent now; you have not the qualifications for this anthem," so they sit with closed lips and folded hands and sinners saved by grace take up the harmony, for the Bible says "no man could learn thal'songbut the hundred and forty and four thousand which were redeemed from the earth." A great prima donna, who can now do any thing with her voice, told me that when she first started in music her teacher in Berlin told her she could be a good singer, but a certain note sho could never reach. "And then," she said, "I wentWwork and studied and prac ticed for years until 1 did reach it" But the song of the sinner redeemed, the Bible says, the exalted harmonists who have never sinned could not reach and never will reach. Would you like to hear me in a very poor way play a snatch of tnat tune? I can give onlv one bar of the music on this gospel harp: "Unto Him that hathloved us and washed us from onr sins in His own blood and hath made us kim-s.ind priests unto God and the Lamb, to Him be pwij uu uuwiuiuu mciw auu cei, sullen. But before leaving this interrogatory. Why God let sin come into the world? let me say that great battles seem to be nothing but suf rering and outrage at the time of their occur rence, yet after they have been a long while East we can see that it was better for them to ave been fought, namely, Salamis, Inkerman, Toulouse, Arbella, Agincourt Trafalgar, Blenheim, Lexington, Sedan. So now that the great battles against sin and suffering are come on we can see mostly that which is de. plorable. But twenty thousand years from now, standing in glory, we shall appreciate that heaven is better off than if the battle of this world' sin and suffering had never been pro jected. THE TTIfrVEESAL QUESTION. Bat now I come nearer home and put a dark saying on the gospel harp, a style of questien that is asked a milium times every year. In terrogation the fourth: Why do I have it so hard while others have it so easy? or, why do I have so much difficulty in getting a livelihood while others go around with a full portcmon naie? or, why must I wear these .plain clothes while others have to push hard to get their wardrobes closed, so crowded are they with brilliant attire? or, why should I have to work so hard while others have S65 holidays every year? They are all practically one question. I answer them by saying, it Is because the Lord has his favorites and he puts extra discipline upon you, and extra trial, because he has for you extra glory, extra enthronement and extra felicities. That is no guess of mine, but a divine say-so: "Whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth." "Well, says one, "I would rather have a lit tle less in heaven and a little more here. Dis count my heavenly robe 10 per cent and let me now put it on, a fur lined overcoat; put me in a less gorgeous room of the house of many man sions and let me have a honse here in a better neighborhood." No, no; God is not going to rob heaven, which is to be your residence for nine hundred quad rillion of years, to fix up your earthlv abode, which you will occupy at most for less than a century, and where you may perhaps only stay ten years longer, or only one jear, or perhaps a month more. Now you had better cheerfully let God have his way, for. ou see. He has been taking care of folks Ur near 7,000 years, and knows how to do it, and can see what is best for you better than you can yourself. Don't think you are too insignificant to bo divinely cared for. It was said that Diana, the goddess could not be present to keep her temple at Ephesus from burning because sho was attend ing upon the birth of Him wbo was to be Alex ander the Great But I tell you that your God and my God is so great in small things as well as large things that he conld attend the cradle of a babe and at the same time the burning of a world. And God will make it all right with you, and there is ono song that you will sing every hour your first ten years in heaven, and the refrain ofthatUong will be: "lam so glad God did not let Vne have it my own way." Your case will all tie fixed np in heaven, and there win be such af reversal of conditions that we can hardly find each other for some time. Borne of us wbo bfeve lived in first rate homes here and in first rate neighborhoods will be found, be cause of our lukewarmness of earthly service, living on one of the back streets of the celes tial cltv. and clear down at the end of it at No. US, or 809, or 15US, while some who had unat tractive earthly abodes, and a cramped one at that will. In the heavenly city, be in a house fronting THE BOYAL PLAZA, right by the imperial fountain, or on the heights overlooking the River of Life, the chariots of salvation halting at your door whilo those visit you who are more than conquerors, and those who are kings and queens unto God forever. You, my brother, and you, my sister, who have it so hard here will have it so fine and grand there that vou will hardly know yourself and will feel disposed to dispute your own identity, and the first time I see you there I wiircry out: "Didn't I tell you so when you sat down there imtbe Brooklyn Tabernacle and looked incredulous because you thought it too good to be truer And you will answer: "You were right the half was not told me!" So this morning I open your dark Saying of despondency and complaint on my gospel harp and give you just ono bar of music, for 1 do not pretend to bo much of a player. "The Lamb which is in the midst of the throne shall lead them to living fountains of water, and God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes." Bnt I must confess I am a little perplexed how some of you good Christians are going to get through the gate, because there will bs so many there to greet you, and they wiU all want to shake hands at once and will all want the first kiss. They will have heard that you are coming, and they will all press around to welcome you and will want you to say whether you know them after being so long parted. v Amid the tussle and romp of reunion 1'tell you whose hand of welcome yon had better first clasp and whose cheek is entitled to the first kiss. It is the hand and the cheek of Him without whom you would never have cot the re at all, the Lord Jesus, the darling of tho skies, as He cries ont"I have loved thee with an ever lasting love and the fires could not burn it and the floods could not drown it" Then you, my dear people, having no more use for my poor harp on which I used to open your dark say ings and whose chords sometimes snapped, de spoiling tho symphony, you will take down your own harps from tho willows that grbw by the eternal water courses and play together those celestial airs, some of the names of which are entitled, "The King in His Beauty," "The Land That Was Far Off," "Jerusalem, the Gul den," "Homo Again," "The Grand March of God" '-The Life Everlasting." And as the last- DABK OUBTAIN OP MYSTERY is forever lifted it will be as though all the ora torios that were ever heard had been rolled into one, and "Israel in Egypt" and ''Je'phtha's Daughter," and Beethoven's "Overture in C," and Bitter's first sonata in D minor, and the "Creation" and the "Messiah" had been blown from the lips of one trumpet, or been invoked by the sweep of one bow, or had dropped from the vibrating chords of one harp. Bnt here I must slow up lest in trying to solve mysteries 1 add to the mystery that we have already wondeied at; namely, why preachers should keep on after all the hearers are tired? So I gather up into one great arm ful all the whys and hows and wherefores of your life and mine, which we have not had time or the ability to answer, and write on them the words "adjourned to eternity." I re joice that we do not understand all things now, for if wo did, what would we learn in heaven? If we knew it all down hero in tho freshman and sophomore class, what would be the use of our going np to stand amid the juniors and the seniors? If we could put down one leg of the compass and with the other sweep a circle clear around all the Inscrn tables, if wo could lift our little steelyards and weigh the throne of the Omnipotent if we could with onr seven-day clock measure eternity, what would be left for heavenly revelation? So I move that we cheerfully adjourn what is now bevond our comprehension, and, as according to Bollin, the historian, Alexander tho Great having obtained the gold casket, in which Darius had kept his raro perfume', used that aromatic casket thereafter to keep his favorite copy of Homer in, and called the book, there fore, tho "edition of tho casket," and at night he put the casket and his sword under his pil low, so I put this day into the perfumed casket of your richest affections and hopes this prom ise, worth more than anything Homer ever wrote or sword ever conquered: "What I do thou knowest not now, but thou Shalt know hereafter," and that I call the "edition ce lestial." ANGET at the legislature. Cincinnati People Are Anxions to Extend a Railroad Lease rSFECIAI. TELEGRAM TO THE MSPATCn.l Cincinnati, February 24. The feeling here against tho lower House of the Gen eral Assembly for refusing to submit to the people the question of whether the lease of the Cincinnati Southern Railroad shall be extended is strong. Hr. Matthew Thomas, a business man, an plied to the city solicitor under the law, asking that officer to sue for an order of in junction restraining the payment of com pensation to the "so-called" trustees of tho Cincinnati southern .Railway Company, to enjoin the performance of the covenant of the existing lease of the Cincinnati Southern Railway, so far as they recognize the trust as existing after the date of the lease, and to institute proceedings to re cover back the incomes paid to said "so called" trustees since the execution of the lease. City Solicitor Theodore Horstman replied to-day that this question has never been properly before any court, and has not been passed upon, and in conclusion he adds: I deem it important that if a suit of the character indicated, affecting such important city interests, is to be brought the law depart ment of the city sbonld keep control of the management of such legislation, rather than an individual. I will therefore bring the suit as soon as I can prepare the petition. A HOT CHARGE. An Enormous Casting Mndo-for n United States Cruiser. San Francisco. Februarv 24. The Inst of the largo castings for the hull of the United btates cruiser ban ifrancisco, now being constructed at theTTnion Iron Works, was made at the Pacific Boiling Hills this afternoon.

About 12 hours' heat ing in the furnace,at a temperature of 4,000 degrees, were required to bring the metal to the necessary condition, for casting. A BORDER FEUD. Lenders of Ono Faction Arrested, Charged With Murder. St. Louis, February 24. A special from Ozark says: Two members of the anti-Ferry faction of the Stone county feud, Frank and "William Ambrose were brought to the Ozark jail for safe keeping, charged with the murder of A. C. Garrett, on December 1, 1887. The Ambrose brothers were indicted by the grand jury of Stone county last week", and are said to have been the leaders of the anti-Ferry deadly family war which pre vailed on the Missouri and Arkansas border about a year ago. "Used Up," "Tired Out," "No Energy," and simi lar expressions, whenever heard, indi cate a lack of vital force, which, if not remedied in time, may lead to com plete physical and nervous prostration. Ayer's Sarsaparilla is the best medi cine to vitalize the blood, build up tho tissues, and make the weak strong. "For nearly three months I was con fined to the house, pne of the most celebrated physicians of Philadelphia failed to discover the cause of my trouble or afford relief. I continued in a bad tvay until about a month ago when I began to take Ayer's Sarsapa rilla. It acted like a charm. I have gained flesh and strength and feel ever so much better. Shall continue using the Sarsaparilla until completely cured." John V. Craven, Salem, N. J. "I find Ayer's Sarsaparilla to be an admirable remedy for the cure of blood diseases. I prescribe it, and it does the work every time." E. L. Pater, M. D., Manhattan, Kansas. . Be sure and ask for Ayer's Sarsaparilla. PEEPAKED BY Dr. J. O.
