Bboobxyit, April 28. At the Tabernacle
to-day, the Bev. T. DeWittTalmage, D. D.,
preached a sermon appropriate to the coin
ing Centennial. The vast congregation sang
the hymn beginning:
Before Jehovah's awful throne.
Ye nations, bow with sacred joy.
Dr. Talmage's text was II Kirnrs vi. 17:
"And the Lord opened the eyes of theyoung
man; and he saw: and, behold, the mountain
was full of horses and chariots of fire round
about Elisha." Be said:
As it cost England many regiments and $2,
000.000a year to keep safely a troublesome
captive at St. Helena, so the king of Syria
sends ont a whole army to capture one minister
ot religion perhaps 60,000 men to take ElisUa.
Sarin;; the night the army of Assyrians came
around the Tillage of Dotlmn. where the
prophet was staying. At early daybreak the
man servant of .Elisha rushed in and said:
"What shall we do? there is a whole army come
to destroy you. We must die. we must die,"
But Elisha was not scared a bit, for he looked
up and saw the mountains all around full of
supernatural forces, and be knew that if there
were 50.000 Assyrians against him there were
100,000 angels for liim: and in answer to the
nrophet's prayer in behalf of the affrighted
man servant, the young man saw it too. Horses
of fire harnessed to chariots of fire, and drivers
of fire pulling reins of fire on bits of fire; and
warriors of fire with brandished sword of fire,
and the brilliance of that morning sunrise was
eclipsed by the galloping splendors of
THE CELESTIAL CAVALCADE.
"And the Lord opened the eyes of the young
man; and he saw; and, behold, the mountain
was foil of horses and chariots of lire round
about Elisha." I have often spoken to you of
the Assyrian perils which threaten our Ameri
can institutions, but now as we are assembling
to keep Centennial celebration of the inaugura
tion ot Washington, 1 speak of the upper forces
of the text that are to fight on our side. If all
the low levels are filled with armed threats, I
have to tell you that the mountains of our hope
and courage and faith are full of the horses
and chariots of Divine rescue.
You will notice that the Divine egninage is
always represented as a chariot of lire. Eze
kiel and Isaiah and John when tbey.come to
describe the Divine equipage, always repre
sent it as a wheeled, a harnessed, an uphol
stered conflagration. It is not a chariot like
king and conquerors of earth mount, but an
organized and compressed fire. That means
purity, justice, chastisement, deliverance
through burning escapes. Chariot of rescue?
yes, but chariot of fire. All oar national disen
thrallments bae been through scorching
agonies and red disasters. Through tribulation
the individual rises. Through tribulation na
tions rise. Chariots of rescue, but chariots of
But how do I know that this divine equipage
Is on the side of our institutions? I know it bv
the history of the last 10S years. The American
Bevolution started from the pen of John Han
cock In Independence Hall in 1776. The colo
nies without ships, without ammunition, with
out guns, without trained warriors, without
money, without prestige. On the other side,
the mightiest nation ot the earth, the largest
armies and the grandest navies, and the most
distinguished commanders, and resources in
exhaustible, and nearly all nations ready to
hack them up in the fight. Nothing as against
WASHINGTON A JOSHUA.
The cause of the American colonies, which
started at zero, dropped still lower through the
quarreling of the generals, and through the
jealousies at small successes, and through the
winters which surpassed all predecessors in
depth of snow and horrors of concealment.
Elisha, surrounded by the whole Assyrian
army, did not seem to be worse off than did the
18 colonies encompassed and overshadowed by
foreign assault. What decided the contest in
our favor? The upper forces, the
upper armies. The Green and White
Mountains of New England, the
Highlands along the Hudson, the
mountains of Virginia; all the Appalachian
ranges were full of reinforcements which the
young man Washington saw by faith; and his
men endured the frozen feet, and the gan
grened wounds, and the exhausting hunger,
and the long march because "the Lord opened
the eyes of the young man; and be saw: and,
behold, the mountains were full of horses and
chariots of fire round about Elisha." Wash
ington himself was a miracle. What Joshua
was in sacred history the first American Presi
dent was in secular history. A thousand other
men excelled him in different things, but he
excelled them all in roundness and complete
ness of character. The world never saw his
like, and probably never will see his like again,
because there probably never will he another
such exigency. He was let down as a divine in
terposition. He w as from God direct.
I do not know how any man can read the
history of those times without admitting that
the contest was decided by the upper forces.
Then, in 186L when our Civil War opened,
many at the North and at the South pro
nounced it national suicide. It was not courage
against cowardice, it was not wealth against
poverty, it was not large (States agaiust small
States. It was
HEBOIS3I AGAINST HEEOISM,
it was the resources of many generations
against the resources of generations, it was the
prayer of the North against the prayer of the
, South, it was one-half of the nation in armed
wrath meeting the other half of the nation in
armed indignation. What could come but ex
termination? At the opening of the war the commander
in chief, of the United States forces was a man
who had been great in battle, but old. age had
come with man infirmities, and he bad a right
to quietude. He could not mount a horse, and
he rode on the battle field in a carriage, asking
the driver not to jolt it too much. During the
most of the four years of the contest, on the
Southern side was a man in mid-life, who had
in his veins the blood of many generations of
warriors, himself one ot the heroes of
Cherubusco and Cerro Gordo, Contre
ras and Chapultcpec. As the rears
passed on and the scroll of carnage
unrolled, there came out from both sides a
heroism and a strength and a determination
that the world had never seen marshaled. And
what but extermination could come when
Philip Sheridan and Stonewall Jackson met,
and N atbaniel Lyon and Sydney Johnston rode
in from North and South, and Grant and Lee,
the two thunderbolts of battle, clashed? Yet,
we are a nation, and yet we are at peace.
.Earthly courage did not decide the conflict.

time you and I remember it very well when
droves ot vagabonds wandered up and down
on election day and from poll to poll, and voted
here and voted there, and voted everywhere,
and there was no challenge: or, if there were, it
amounted to nothing, because nothing could so
suddenly be proved npon the vagabonds. Nov.,
in every well organized neighborhood, every
Toter is watched with severest scrutiny. I
must tell the registrar my name, and how old I
am, and how long I have resided in the State,
and how long I havo resided in tne ward, or
the township, and if I misrepresent 60 wit
nesses will rise and shut me out from the ballot
box. Is not that a great advance? And then
notice the law that prohibits a man voting if
be has bet on the election. A step further
neeas to be taken, and that man forbidden a
vote who has offered or taken a bribe, whether
it be in the shape of a free drink or cash paid
down, the suspicious cases obliged to put their
hand on the Bible and swear their vote in if
they vote at all. So through the sacred chest
of our nation's suffrage redemption will come.
God will also save this nation through an
aroused moral sentiment. There has never
been so much discussion of morals and lmmor
als. Men, whether or not they acknowledge
-what is right, have to think what is right. We
have men who have had their hands in the pub
lic treasury the most of their lifetime, stealing
all they could lay their hands on, discoursing
eloquently abont dishonesty in public servants,
and men with two or three families of their
own, preaching eloquently about the beauties
of the Seventh Commandment. The question
of sobriety and -drunkenness is thrust in the
face of this nation as never before ana to take
a part in our political contests.
The question of national sobriety is going to
be respectfully and deferentially heard at the
bar of every Legislature and every House of
Representatives and every United States Sen
ate, and an omnipotent voice will ring down
the sky and across this land and back again,
saying to these rising tides of drunkenness
which threaten to whelm home and church and
nation: "Thus far sbalt thou come, bnt no

1 have not in my mind a shadow of disheart
enment as large as the shadow of a housefly's

per armies of the text. God is not dead. The
chariots are not unwheeled. If you would only
pray .more and wash your eyes in the cool, bright
water fresh from the w ell of Christian reform,
it would be said of you. as of this one of the
text: "The Lord opened the eyes of the young
man: and he saw: and. behold, the mountain

When, the army of Antigonus went into bat
tle his soldiers were very much discouraged,
and thev rushed up to the General and said to
him: "Don't you see we have a few forces and
they bare so many more?" and the soldiers
were affrighted at the smallness of their num
ber and the greatness of the enemy. Antigo
nus, their commander, straightened himself up
and said, with indignation and vehemence:
"How many do you reckon me to be?" And
w hen we see the vast armies arrayed against
the cause of souricty it may sometimes be very
discouraging, but Task you in making up your
estimate of the forces of righteousness I ask
you how many do you reckon the Lord God
Almighty to be? He is our commander. The
Lord of Hosts is His name. I have the best
authority for saying that the chariots of God,
are 20,000, and the mountains are full of them.
ME UPPEE FOECES.
You will take without my saving it that my
only faith is in Christianity and in the upper
forces suggested in the text. Political parties
come and go, and they may be right and they
may be wrong, but- God lives, and'l think He
has ordained this nation for a career of pros
perity that no demagogism will be able to halt.
I expect to live to see a political party which
will have a platform of two planks: The Ten
Commandments and the Sermon on the
Mount. When that party is formed it will
sweep across this land like a tornado, I was go
ing to say, but when I think it is not to be de
vastation but resuscitation, I change the figure
and say, such a party as that will sweep across
this land like spice gales from heaven.
Have you any doubt about the need of the
Christian religion to purify and make decent
American politics? At every yearly or quad
rennial election we have in this country great
manufactories, manufactories of lies, and they
are run day and night, and they turn out half
a dozen a day all equipped and ready for full
sailing. Large lies and small lies. Lies pri
vate and lies public and lies patient. Lies cut
bias and lies cut diagonal. Long-limbed lies
and lies with donble back action. Lies compli
mentary and lies defamatory. Lies that some
people believe, and lies that all the people be
lieve, and lies that nobody believes. Lies with
humps like camels and scales like crocodiles
and necks as long as storks and feet as swift as
an antelope's and stings like adders. Lies raw
and scalloped and panned and stewed. Crawl,
ing lies and jumping lies and soaring lies. Lies
with attachment screws and rufflers and
braiders and ready-wound bobbers. Lies by
Christian people who never lie except during
elections, and lies by people who always lie,
but beat themselves in a Presidental cam
paign. CAMPAIGN FILTH.
I confess I am ashamed to have a foreigner
visit this country in such times. I should think
he would stand dazed, his hand on his pocket
book, and dare not co out nights. What will
the hundreds of thousands of foreigners who
come here to live think of us? What a disgust
they must have for the land of their adoption I
The only good thing about it is, many of them
cannot understand the English language. But
I suppose the German and Italian and Swedish
and French papers translate it all and peddle
out the infernal stuff to their subscribers.
Nothing but Christianity will ever stop such
a flood of indecency. The Christian religion
will speak after a while. The billingsgate and
low scandal through which we wade every year
or every four years, must be rebuked by that
religion which speaks from its two great moun
tains, from the one mountain Intoning the
command, "Thou sbalt not bear false witness
against thy neighbor," and from the other
mount making plea for kindness and love and
blessing rather than cursing. Yes, we are go
ing to have a national religion.
There are two kinds of national religion.
The one is supported by the State, and is a
matter of human politics, and it has great pat
ronage, and under it men will struggle for
prominence without reference to qualifica
tions, and its archbishop is supported by a sal
ary of 75,000 a year, and there are great Cathe
drals, with all the machinery of music and
canonicals, and room for a thousand people,
yet an audience of 50 people, or 20 people, or 10,
We want no such religion as that, no such
national religion; bnt we want this kind of na
tional religion the vast majority of the people
converted and evangelized, and then they will
manage the secular as w ell as the religious.
A KATIOXAIi BELIGION PEACTICABLE.
Do you say that this is impracticable? No.
The time is coming just as certainly as there is
a God and that this is His book, and that He
has the strength and the honesty to fulfill His
promises. One of the ancient Emperors used
to pride himself on performing that which his
counselors said was impossible, and I have to
tell you to-day that man's impossibles are God's
easies. "Hath He said and shall He not
do it? Hath He commanded, and will he not
bring it to pass?" The Christian religion
is coming to take possession of every ballot
box, of every schoolhouse. of every home, of
every valley, of every mountain, of every acre
of our natioual domain. This nation, notwith
standing all the evil influences that are trying
to destroy it, is going to live.

Ahl it will not be long before it will not
make any difference to you or to me what be
comes of this continent, so far as earthly com
fort is concerned. All we will want of it will be

largest, and there will be room and to spare.
That Is all of this country we will need very

Christ, is in the midst of a garden.
One of the seven wonders ot the world was
the white marble watch tower of Pharos of
Egypt. Sostratus, the architect and sculptor,
after building that watch tower cut, his name
on it. Then he covered it with plastering, and
to please the King he put the monarch's name
on the outside of the plastering: and the storms
beat and the seas dashed in their fury, and they
washed off the plastering, and they washed it
out, and they washed it down, but the naino of
Sostratus was deep cut in the imperishable
rock. So across the face of this nation there
have been a great many names written, across
our finances, across our religions, names worthy
of remembrance, names written on the archi
tecture of our chnrches and our schools and
our asylums and our homes of mercy, but
GOD IS THE AECHITECT
of this contlnent,and He was the sculptor of all
its grandeurs, and long after through the wash
of the ages and the tempests of centuries, all
other names shall be obliterated, the divine
signature and divine name will be brighter and
brighter as the millenniums go by, and the
world shall see that the God who made this
continent has redeemed it by His grace from all
its sorrows and from all its crimes.
Have you faith in such a thing as that? After
all the chariots have been unwheeled, and
after all the war chargers have been crippled,
the chariots which Elisha saw on the morning
of his peril will roll on in triumph, followed by
all the armies of heaven on white horses. God
could do it without us, but He will not. The
weakest of us, the faintest of us, the smallest
brained of us. shall have a part in the triumph.
'We may uot have our name, like the name of
Sostratus, cut in imperishable rock and con

redeem the world, and our names will be seen
close to the signature of His wound, for as

NOT TOO LATE.
Miss Drayer, aged sixteen years, daughter of
Mr. Wm. H. Drayer, a well known shoo dealer,
had been afflicted with Club Foot fourteen
years, causing great distress and annoyance to
herself and family. There was such a contrac
tion of the muscles that she couldnot straighten
her limb, and although she wore the usual
high beel shoe, it was impossible for her to
bring her heel to the ground when walking.
After suffering on in this condition for four
teen years, she consulted one of the surgeons
of the Polypathic Surgical Institute, and was
convinced that It was xox too late to be
cured. An operation was performed, and the
deformity entirely removed, and although it is
now three years since the operation, her cure
has remained permanent. She walks perfectly,
and has no further use for a high heel shoe.

A Cripple of Three Years Standing
Cured in Fifteen Minutes
By Dr. Smith, at 502 Perm Ave.
Dr. Smith is performing some of the most
wonderful cures ever witnessed in Pittsburg.
Scores and hundreds of invalids who have
hitherto been unable to find relief from their
sufferings are being restored to health in large
numbers through Dr. Smltha strange magnetfo
power. It is exceedingly interesting to see
and talk with the vast number of invalids suf -fering
from all manner of complaints
who are brought to the doctor for his favor
able or unfavorable opinion of their diseases.
It is also gratifying to observe the change that
takes place in many of these seemingly helpless
cases. Scores of invalids who are so weak and
feeble that they have to be carried to the doc
tor in chairs and on beds are restored to health
in a short time. Some are cured by one, come
by two magnetic treatments, while others re
quire more. The following very interesting
case was cured by our magnetic treatment:
Mr. John'M. Eakin, who resides at Eau Claire,
Butler county. Pa., was a great sufferer for
three years. He was carried to Dr. Smith, at
No. 602 Penn avenue, in a hopeless condition.
He'could not walk or more without the aid of
two canes, and for the past year he had not
been able to bend oVer sufficiently to wash
his face. He was sufferine from what bad
been pronounced by 12 eminent physicians as
Esoas abcess. These physicians pronounced
is case Incurable, and told him that there was
no help for him. He then consulted Prof.
Scott and Dudly Allen. M. D., of the Regular
School of Medicine at Cleveland, O. Ihese
eminent medical men gave him no encourage
ment, as pus had, in their opinion, already
formed. These are thestatements given to Dr.
Smith by Mr. Eakin when he came for treat
ment. After one magnetic treatment of about
15 minutes' duration, Mr. Eakin was able to
bend over and pick up a pin from the floor
and was able to walk without pain and without
the use of his canes. Mr. E. remained in the
city several days after receiving the treatment
and was able to go about the city from day to
day without never a sense of pain, weariness or
lameness. He returned to Ills home, at Eau
Claire last Saturday, and maybe referred to.
Mrs. Gough was cured of dyspepsia and rheu
matism by four magnetic treatments. These
cures were performed without a single dose of
medicine. Scores of cases equally as interest
ing could be given if we had the time and
space. Dr. Smith will deliver' an illustrated
lecture to ladies and gentlemen at the Grand
Opera House next Sunday afternoon at 2:30
o'clock. The lecture will be free and every
body is invited to attend.
Dr. Smith cures all torms of female com
plaints without the use of Instruments or ex
posure of the person. He also cures piles and
rupture without the use of the knife, or pain
to the patient, nor detention from business.
He treats and cures cancers in less time and
with less pain than by any other known
Dr. Smith is permanently located at 502 Penn
avenue, where everybody can go from .9 A. M.
till 7 P. M. The doctor consults free and cures
after all other means fall. He treats every
form of disease Known to humanity. Goto

to get well. Letters of inquiry must contain
