Dr. Talmage Speaks of the Effects of
Sin Upon the World.
Undisciplined Homes the Scarce of Much
Brooklyn, May 12. The Bev. T. De
Witt Talmage, D. D., preached at the
tCabernacle to-day to a vatt congregation,
who tans with grand effect the hjran begin
ning: My soul, be on thy guard;
Ten thousand foes arise.
And hosts of sin are pressing hard
To draw thee from the skies.
His subject was "A Poisoned Dinner,"
and his text IT Kings, ir, 40: "So thej
poured out for the men to eat. And it came
to pass, as they were eating of the pottage,
that they cried out and said, 0 thou nan
of God, there is death in the pot And
they could not eat thereof."
Elisha bad gone down to lecture to the stu
dents in the theological seminary atGUgal.
So found the students Tery hungry, as students
are apt to be. It is very seldom the world
makes large provision for those wbo give them
selves to Intellectual toll. In order that these
students may be prepared to hear what Elisha
Bays, he first feeds their hunger. He knew
very well it is useless to talk, to preach, to lec
ture with hungry men.
So Elisha, recognizing tbls common sense
principle, which every Christian ought to rec
ognize, sends servants ont to get food for these
hungry students. They pick up 6omegood,
healthful herbs, but they happen to pick up
also some coloouintida. a bitter, noisonons.
deathful herb. They bring all tbese herbs,
they put them into the boiling pot, ibey stir
them up, and then a portion of this food is
brought to the students and their professors.
Seated at the table, one of
begins immediately to eat, and he happens to

it by the taste. He cries out: "Poison, poisonl
O thou man of God, there is death in the potl"
"Consternation is thrown over the whole group.
"What a fortunate thing it was that this student
eo early found the coloquintida In the mixture
at the table! You will by reference find this
story is precisely as I have mentioned it.
Well, in our day there are great caldrons of
Bin and death. Coloquintida of mighty tempta
Jtlon is pressed Into it. Some dip it out, and
taste, and reject It and live. Others dip It out,
taste it, keep on and die. And it Is the busi
ness of every minister of religion and every
tnanwho wishes well to the human race, and
who wants to keep the world back from its
follies and its sufferings, to cry out: "Beware!
toison, poison! Lookout lor this caldron!
tand back! Beware!"
Sin has done an an f ul work in our world. It
lias gone out through all the ages, it has mixed
up a great caldron of trouble and suffering and
toain, and the whole race is poisoned poisoned
in body, poisoned in mind, poisoned in souL
J3ut blessed be God that the gospel of Jesus
Christ is the antidote, and where there was sin
there ehaU be pardon, and where there was
suffering there shall be comfort, and where
there was death there shall be life.
Some time ago, you will remember, I per
suaded yon of the importance of being charita
ble in the judgment of others. At the same
time I said to yon briefly what this morning I
wish to say with great emphasis, that while we
cympathize with the sinner we mtist denounce
the sin, that while we pity the unfortunate we
must be vehement against transgression. Sin
Is a jagged thing that needs to be roughly
handled. You have no right to garland it with
fine vhrases or lustrous rhetoric. You cannot
catch a buffalo with
A group of emigrants settle in a wild region

with all the neighbors band together, and they
go out with torch m one hand and gun in the
other to hunt these monsters down, to find
thcr hiding place, to light up and ransack the
caverns, and to destroy the invaders of their
houses. So we want now not merely to talk
about the sins and follies of the world, we want
to go behind them, back of them. Down into
the caverns where they hide we need to go with
uewmioiuDas worainone nana ana the
sword of God's eternal spirit in the other to
hunt ont and slay these iniquities in their hid
ing places. Or, to come back to the figure sug
gested by my text, we want to find what are the
caldrons of sin and death from which the
iniquities of society are dipped out.
I. In the first place, I remark: that unhappy
and undisciplined homes are the caldrons of
.great iniquity. Parents harsh and cruel on
the one hand, or on the other hand loose in
their government, wickedly loose in their gov
ernment, are raising up a generation of vipers.
A home where scolding and fretful n ess are
dominant is blood relation to the gallows and
the penitentiary! Petulance is a serpent that
crawls up into the family nurserv sometimes
and crushes everything. Why. there are pa
rents who even -make religion disgusting to
their children. They scold them for not loving
Christ: They have an exasperating way of do
ing their duty. The house is full ot the war
whoop of contention, and from such a place

Oh, is there a Hagar leading away Ishmael
Into the desert to be smitten of the thirst and
parched of thesand? In the solemn birth houra
voice fell to thee from the throne of God,saj ing:
"late this child and nurse it for me, and I will
give thee thy wages." At eventime, when the
angels of God hover over that home, do they
hear the children lisping the name of Jesus? 0
traveler for eternity, your little ones gathered
under your robes, are you leading them on the
right road, or are you taking them out on the
dangerous winding bridle path, off which their
Inexperienced feet may slip, and up which
comes the howling of the wolf and the sound
of loosened ledge and tumbling avalanche?
Blessed is the family altar at which the chil
dren kneel. Blessed is the cradle in which the
Cbrlstain mother rocks the Christian child.
Blessed is the song the little ones Blng at night
fall when sleep is closing the eyes and loosen

is that mother whose every heart throb Is a

Hudson river yesterday, all the rail trains on
the Pennsylvania route,'all the rail trains on the
Long Island road brought to these cities young
men to begin commercial life. Some of them
are here this morning, I doubt not. Do yon
know what one of your great temptations is
going to be? It is the example of Indolent
people in our cities. They are in all our cities.
They dress better than some wbo are indus
trious. They have access to all places of
amusement plenty of money, and yet idle.
They hang around our great hotels the Fifth

walk T Why should you work T Why drudge
and toil in bank and shop and office, or on the
scaffolding, or by the anvil, when these men
get along so well and do not work T
Some of them hing around the city hills of
our great cities, toothpick in their month, wait
ing for some crumb to fall from the office
holder's table. Some of them hang around the
city hall for the city van bringing criminals
from the station houses. They stand there and
gloat over t really enjoy the disgrace and
suffering of those poor creatures as they get
out of the city van and go into the courts.
Where do they get their money? That is
what yon ask. That is what I ask. Only four
ways of getting money only four: by Inheri
tance, by earning it, by begging it, by stealing
it; and there are a vast multitude among us
who get their living not by inheritance, nor by
earning It, nor by begging it. I do sot like to
take the responsibility of saying
Now, these men are a Constant temptation.
Why should I toil and weir myself ont in the
bank, or the office, or the store, or the shop, or
the factory? These men have nothing to do.
Theygetalongagreat deal better. And that
is the. temptation under which a great many
men fait They begin to consort with these
men, these idlers, and they go down thersame
awful steeps. The number of men in our cities
who are trying to get their livings by their wits
and by sleight of hand is all the time increas
ing. A New York merchant saw a young man, one
of his clerks, in half disguise, going into a very
low place of amusement. The merchant said
to himself: "I must look out for that clerk: he
is going in bad company and going in bad
places; I must look out for him." A few months
passed on, and one morning the merchant en
tered his store, and this clerk of whom 1 have
been speaking came up in assumed consterna
tion and Said: "Oh, sir, the store has been on
fire; I have put out the fire; but there are a
great many goods lost; we have bad a great
crowd of people coming and going." Then the
merchant took the clerk by the collar and said:
"I hare had enough of this; you cannot deceive
me;wheroare those goods you stole?" The
young man instantly confessed his villainy.
O the numbers of people in these great cities
who are trying to get their living not honestly!
And they are a mighty temptation to the in
dustrious young man who cannot understand it.
While these others have it so easy they have it
so hard. Horatlcs of olden time was told that
he could have just as much ground as he could
plow around with a yoke of oxen in one day.
He booked up the oxen to the plow and he cut
a very large circle and plon ed until he came to
the same point where bo started, and all that
property was his. But I have to tell you to-day
that just so much financial, justso much moral,
just so much spiritual possession you will have
as yon compass with your own industries, and
jnst so much as from the morning of your life
to the evening of your life you can plow around
with your own bard work. "Go to the ant,
thou slnggard; consider her ways and be wise."
One of the most awful caldrons of death to-day
is an Indolent life. Thank God that
TTT. Once more I remark; tnat the dram
shop Is a great caldron of iniquity in our time.
Anarcharsis said that the vine bore three
grapes; the first was Pleasure, the next was
Drunkenness, and the next Misery. Every
saloon above ground or under ground is a
fountain of iniquity. It may have a license
and it may go along quite respectably for a
while, but after a while the cover will fall off
and the color of the iniquity will be displayed.
"Oh." says some one. "you ought to be easier
on such a traffic when it pays such a large reve
nue to the Government, and helps support your
schools and your great institutions of mercy."
And then I think of what William E. Gladstone
said I think it was the first time he was Chan
cellor of the Exchequer when men engaged
in the ruinous traffic came to him and said
their business ought to have more considera
tion from the fact that it paid such a large
revenue to the English Government. Mr.
Gladstone said: "Gentlemen, don't worry
yourselves about the revenue: give me thirty
millions of sober people, and we'll have reve-
nue enougn ana a surplus."
We might in this country this traffic per
ishedhave less revenue, but we!wouldbave
more happy homes, and we would have more
peace, and we wonld have fewer people in the
penitentiary, and there would be tens of
thousands of men who arenowontheroadto
hell who would start on the road to heaven.
But the financial ruin is a very small part of
it. This iniquity ot which I speak takes every
thing that is sacred out of the familv. every
thing that is holy in religion, everything that is
infinite in the soul and tramples it under foot.

I close with a peroration. Ministers and
speakers are very apt to close with a perora
tion, and they generally roll up some grand
imagery to express what they have to say. I
close with a peroration mightier than was ever
uttered by mere human lips. Two quotations.
The first is this: "Who hath woe? who bath
babbling? who hath wounds without cause?
They that tarry long at the wine, they that go
to seek mixed wine. Look not upon the wine
when It is red, when it moveth itself aright in
the cup. for at the last it biteth like a serpent
and stingetb like an adder." This is the other
quotation. Make np your mind as to which is
the more impressive: "Bel oice, O young man,
in thy youth, and let thy heart cheer thee in
the days of thy youth, and walk tbou in the
sight of thine own eyes; bnt know thou that for
all these things God will bring thee into judg
ment." The Limit of Profitable Fertility.

she experienced in almost every part of her
body was simply terrible. Those sharp, cntting
pains across the small of her back and lower
partofber body was almost unbearable. In
fact she suffered -with all those diseases and
conditions peculiar to women. For three
months her mind was unbalanced, and for
months she was confined to her bed. She be

only weighed 98 pounds. No one expeoted her

Please remember that the physicians of the
Catarrh and Dyspepsia Institute never display
their patient's portraits in the papers. Neither
do they publish any testimonial, except with
the full consent or wish of the patient.
Furthermore, their testimonials are not from
some far off place where no such parties reside,
but from your own county and your own
city, with the full name and address
given, thus proving their genuineness. The
Catrrrh and Dyspepsia Institute is thoroughly
established in Pittsburg, and thousands of
patients gladly testify to cures they have re
ceived. The treatment used does not consist
of the so-called magnetic, or superhuman
agencies, cut medicines made from roots
and herbs, and compounded to suit
the requirements of each individual
case, thus removing not only the disease,
but the cause of the disease as well.

he applied for treatment be complained of
mnch soreness in his lungs,shortness of breath,
a choked up feeling in bis throat, with much
dryness; the catarrhal secretion that he raised
from his throat and lungs was very tough and
tenacious; his eyes were weak and troubled
him very much about reading or seeing ob-
i'ects distinctly. The disease also extended to
lis stomach, so that he had great pain after
eating. On account of his food souring on
his stomach he had mnch belching of gas, and
was so bloated that his heart wonld freauentlv
palpitate, and gave him so much pain that he
thought he had heart disease. After becoming
cured, as above stated, he says:
"I am very glad to give my testimonial, and

my many friends for curing me of this dread
ful disease, and I cheerfully recommend all
others suffering from chronic diseases to call

Specialist In tbe Care of Rapture nnd
Chronic Diseases, Office at Hotel Albr
mnrle, Penn Avenue and Sixth Street,
Thousands suffer for a long series of years
and linger out a useless Ufa, who, with proper
treatment, mignc oe restored to neaun ana
contribute to tbe health and happiness of
others. In many cases the fault Is not theirs,
for they trv various doctors and quack nos
trums for. relief; but skill is not readily found.
Tbe general practitioner has but little time or
opportunity for the observation ot a large
class of chronic complaints. 3b man can be
come expert in every branch of tbe healing
art; bence specialists are demanded for the
highest good or humanity. Dr. Woods' long
and patient study, bis knowledge ot Allopathic,
tfomcapatbic and Botanic or Eclectic systems
of medicine, together with his discoveries and
new application of old remedies, hare given
him unparalleled success in that class of dis
eases which bare until lately baffled tbe skill
of eminent physicians, and secured for himself
an enviable reputation. Dr. Woods has given
the public evidence sufficient to convince tbe
most skeptical that bis methods are singularly
successful, especially in such cases as baro de
,fied tho skill of other and justly celebrated
It is always the truest economy for Invalids
to secure tha best medical aid, and not apply
to a physician with a feeling that they would
pay liberally if they were only cured. The way
to obtain health is to apply to a physician wbo
is skilled in the treatment of the diseases from
which tber suffer, and secure his services and
a course of medicines. The best evidence that
can De turnished or his claims to confidence is
indisputable evidence of success. If he had
the ability to effect cures instantly it could not
be accomplished by meditatiou; it requires an
effort on tbe part of the patient, who should
have hope, confidence and a desire to be cured
if possible This can only be done by placing
one's self under treatment without hesitation
about a few dollars, as though health were
subordinate to all other things.
One of the fundamental principles which
guide Dr. Woods in his treatment of patients is
to do justice to all classes, so that mechanics
and laboring men receive the same treatment
at his bands as merchants and bankers. His
successful methods are therefore extended to
all alike, who apply to him for aid, and his
charges are made so reasonable In all cases that
they come within the reach of all who seek the
benefit of his services. No one who suffers
need hesitate for one moment before applying
to him and being placed on the road to re
covery. v
Another inducement for calling on Dr.
Woods is, be makes no extra charge for medi
cines. He compounds his own prescriptions
for his patients and furnishes all necessary in
struments and appliances. Tbls arrangement
saves much trouble, avoids mistakes, is guar
antee that all the medicines are genuine as
well as effects a saving of money to the afflicted
who are treated by him. When possible the
doctor prefers to see his patients; but when
this is impossible his successful system of treat
ment by correspondence enables the affiioted
in all parts of the world to avail themselves of
the benefit ot his skill at a very small cost.
Send four cents in stamps for question list. All
Communications sacredly confidential. No
charge for advice. Examinations are also free
to those who desire treatment.
