Be Witt Talmae;e preached here to-day on
the subject: "Our House on the Hills." His
text was John civ. 2: "In my Father's house
are many rooms." He said:
Here is a bottle of medicine that is a
cure-all. The disciples were sad and Christ
offered heaven as an alternative, a stimu
lant and a tonic He shows them that tbeir
sorrows are only a dark background of a
bright picture of coming felicity. He lets
them know that though now they live on
the lowlands they shall yet have a house on
the uplands. Nearly all the Bible descrip
tions of heaven may be figurative. I am
not positive that in all heaven there is a
literal crown or harp or pearly gate or
throne or chariot. They may be only used
to illustrate the glories of the placc.bat how
well they do it! The favorite symbol by
which the Bible presents celestial happi
ness is a house. Paul, who never owned a
house, although he hired one for two years
in Italy, speaks ol heaven as a "house not
made with hands," and Christ in our test,
the translation of which is a little changed
so as to give the more accurate meaning,
says: "In my Father's house are many
This divinely authorized comparison of
heaven to a great homestead of large accom
modations I propose to carry out. In some
healthy neighborhood a man builds a very
commodious habitation. He must have
rooms for all his children. The rooms come
to be called after the different members of
the family. That is mother's room. That
i tieorce s room, nat is iienry s room.
That is Flora's room. That is Mary's room.
And the house is all occupied. But time
goes by and the sons go out into the world
and build their own homes, and the daugh
ters are married or have talents enough si ngly
to go out and do good work in the world.
HEAVEN IS FILLING TJI.
After a vhilo the father and mother are
almost alone in the b'g house, and seated
by the evening stand, they say: "Well, our
family is no larger now than when we
started together 40 years ago." But time
goes still further by, and some of the chil
dren are unfortunate and return to the old
homestead to live, and the grandchildren
come with them, and perhaps great-grandchildren,
and again the house is full. Many
millennia ago Qod built on the hills of
heaven a great homestead for a family in
numerable, yet to be. At first He lived
alone in that great house, but after a while
it was occupied by a very large family,
cherubic, seraphic, angelic. The eternities
passed on, and many of the inhabitants be
came wayward ana left, never to return.
And many of the apartments were vacated.
I refer to the fallen angels. Now these
apartments are filling up again. There are
arrivals at the old homestead of God's chil
dren every day, and the day will come when
there will be no unoccupied room in all the
As you and I expect to enter it and make
there eternal residence, I thought you would
like to get some more particulars about that
many-roomed homestead. "In my Father's
house are many rooms." -You see the place
is to be apportioned off into apartments.
We shall love all who are in heaven, but
there are some very good people whom we
would not want to live with in the same
room. They may be better than we are, but
they are of a divergent temperament. We
would like to meet with them on the golden
streets and worship with them in the temple
and walk with them on the river banks, but
I am glad to say that we shall live in differ
ent apartments. "In my Father's house
are many rooms." You see heaven will be
so large that if one want an entire room to
himself or herself, it can be afforded.
MANSIONS FOR ALU
An ingenious statistician, taking the
statement made in Revelation, 21st chapter,
that the heavenly Jerusalem was measured
and found to be 12,000 fnriongs, and that
the length and height and breadth of it are
equal, savs that would make heaven in size
1)48 sextillion 088 quintilliou cubic feet; and
then, reserving a certain portion for the
court of iieaven and the streets, and esti
mating that the trorld may last a hundred
thousand years, he ciphers out that there are
over five trillion rooms, each room 17 feet
long, 1G feet wide, 15 feet high. But I
have no faith in the accuracy of that calcu
lation. He makes the rooms too small.
From all I can read, the rooms will be pala
tial, and those who have not had enough
room in this world will have plenty of room
at the last.
The fact is that most people in this world
are crowded, though out on a vast prairie
or in a mountain district people may have
more room than they want, in most cases it
is house built close to house, and the streets
are crowded and the cradle is crowded by
other cradles, and the graves crowded in the
cemetery by other graves, and one of the
richest luxuries of many people in getting
out of this world will be the gaining of
unhindered and uncramped room. And I
should not wonder if instead ot the room
that the statistician ciphered out as only 17
feet by 16, it should be larger than any of
tne imperial rooms at Berlin, St. James or
Winter Palace. "In my Father's house
are many rooms." Carrying out still
further the symbolism of the text let us
join hands anil go up to this majestic home
stead and see for ourselves.
THROUGH THE PEARLY OTES.
As we ascend the golden steps, an invisi-
Die guardsman swings open the front door
and we are ushered into the reception room
of the old homestead. That is the place
where we first meet the welcome of heaven.
There must be a place where the departed
spirit enters and a place in which it con
fronts the inhabitants celestial. The recep
tion room of the newly arrived from this
world what scenes it must have witnessed
since the first guest arrived, the victim of
the first fratricide, pious Abel. In that
room Christ lovingly greeted all new com
ers. He redeemed them and He has the
ncht to the first embrace bn their arrival.
What a minute when the ascended spirit
first sees the Lord. Better than all we ever
read about him or talked about hira or sang
about him in all the churches and
through all our earthly lifetime, will
it be, just for one secord to see Him. The
most rapturous idea we ever had of Him on
sacramental days or at the height of some
great revival or under the uplifted baton of
an oratorio are a bankruptcy of thought
compared witu me nrst nasn ol ills appear
ance in that reception room. At that mo
ment when you confront each other, Christ
looking upon you and you looking upon
Christ, there will be an ecstatic thrill and
surging of emotion that beggars all descrip
tion. Lookl They need no introduction.
Long ago Christ chose that repentant sinner
and that repentant sinner chose Christ.
Mightiest moment of an immortal history
the first kiss Of heaven! Jesus and the soul.
The soul and Jesus.
But now into that reception room pour
the glorified kinsfolk. Enough of earthly
retention to let you know them, but with
out their wounds or their sickness or their
troubles. See what heaven has done for
them. So radiant, so gleeful, so transport
They call you by name. They greet you
with an ardor proportioned to the anguish,
of youjparting and the length of your sep-'
aration. Father! Mother! There is your
child. Sisters! Brothers! Friends! I
wish you joy. For years apart, together
again in the reception room of the old
homestead. You see they will know -you
are coming. There are so many immortals
filling till the spaces between here and
heaven that news like that flies like light
ning. They will be there in an instant;
though they were in some other world on
errand from God a signal would be thrown
that would fetch them. Though you might at
first feel dazed and overawed at tbeir super
nal splendor, all that feeling will be gone at
their first touch of heavenly salutation and
we will say: "O. my lost boy," "O, my lost
companion," "O, my lost friend, are we
I here together?
nat scenes nave oecn witnessed in mat
reception room of the old homestead! There
met Joseph and Jacob, finding it a brighter
room than anything thev saw in Pharaoh's
palace; David and the little child for whom
he once fasted and wept; Mary and Lazarus
after the heartbreak of Bethany; Timothy
and grandmother Lois; Isabella Graham
and her sailor son, Alfred and George Cook
man, the mvstery oi the sea at last made
manifest; Luther and Magdalene, the
daughter he bemoaned; John Howard and
the prisoners he gospelized; and multitudes
without number who, once so weary and so
sad, parted on earth but gloriously met in
heaven. Among all the rooms of that house
there is no one that more enraptures my
soul than that reception room. "In my
Father's house are many rooms."
BETORE THE THRONE.
Another room in our Father's ho.usa is
the throne room. We belong to the royal
family. The blood of King Jesus flows in
our veins, so we have . a right to enter the
throne room. It is no easy thing on earth
to get through even the outside door of a
King's residence. During the Franco
German war one eventide in the summer of
1870, 1 stood studying the exquisite sculp
turing of the gate of the Tuileries, Paris.
Lost in admiration of the wonderful art of
that gate I knew not that I was exciting
suspicion. Lowering myeyes to the crowds
of people I found myself being closely in
spected by governmental officials, who from
my complexion judged me to be a German,
and that for some belligerent purpose I
might be examining the ;ates of the palace.
My explanations in very poor French did
not satisfy them and they followed me long
distances until I reached my hotel, and
were not satisfied until from my landlord
they found that I was only an inoffensive
The gates of earthly palaces are carefully
guarded, and, if so, how much more severely
the throne room. A dazzling place is it for
mirrors and all costly art No one who
ever saw the throne room of the first and
only Napoleon will ever forget the letter If
embroidered in purple and gold on the up
holstery ol chair and window, the letter N
gilded on the wall, the letter If chased on
the chalices, the letter N flaming fro;n the
ceiling. What a conflagration of brilliance
the throne room of Charles Im
mauuel of Sardinia, of Ferdinand of
Spain, of Elizabeth of England, of
Boniface of Italy. But the throne room
our Father's house hath a glory eclipsing
all the throne rooms that ever saw scepter
nave or crown glitter or foreign ambassador
bow, for ooir Father's throne is a throne of
grace, a throne of merer, a throne of holi
ness, a throne oi justice, a throne of uni
versal dominion. We need not stand shiv
ering and cowering before it, for our Father
says we may yet one day come up and sit on
it beside him. "To him that overcometh
will I grant to sit with me in my throne."
You see we are
TRINCES AND PRINCESSES.
Perhaps now we moveabout incognito, as
Peter the Great in the garb of a ship car
penter at Amsterdam, or as Queen Tirzah in
the dress of a peasant woman seeking the
prophet for her child's cure; but it will be
found out after a while who we are when we
get into the throne room. Aye! we need
not wait until then. We may, by prayer
and song and spiritual uplifting, this mo
ment enter the throne room. O King, live
forever! We touch the forgiving scepter
and prostrate ourselves at thy feet! The
crowns ot the royal families ot this world
are tossed about from generation to genera
tion and from family to family. There are
children 4 years old in Berlin, who have
seen the crown on three Emperors. Bnt
wherever the coronets of this world rise or
fall, they are destined to meet in one
place. And I look -and see them coming
from north and south and east and west, the
Spanish crown, the Italian crown, the Eng
lish crown, the Tuikish crown, the Bussian
crown, the Persian crown, aye, ail the
crowus from under the great archivolt of
heaven; and while I watch and wonder they
are all flung in rain of diamonds around the
Jesus shall reign where'er the sun
Does his successive journeys run,
His kingdom stretch from sbore to shore
Till sun shall rise and set no more.
Oh, that throne of Christ! "In my
Father's house are many rooms."
Another room in our Father's house is the
music room. St. John and other Bible
writer: talk so much about the music of
heaven that there must be music there, per
haps not such as on earth was thrummed
from trembling string or evoked by touch of
ivory key, but if not that, why something
better. There are so many Christian harp
ists and Christian composers and Christian
organists and Christian choristers and Chris
tian hymnologists that have gone up from
earth, there must be for them some place of
especial delectation. Shall we have music
in this world of discords and no music in
the land of complete harmony? I cannot
give you the notes of the first bar of the new
song that is sung in heaven, I cannot imag
ine either the soIo or the doxology. But
heaven means music, and can mean nothing
else. Occasionally that music has escaped
Dr. Fuller dving at Beaufort, S. C. said:
"Do you not 'hear?" "Hear what?" ex
claimed the bystanders. "The music! Lilt
me up! Open thewindow!" In that music
room of our Father's house, you will some
day meet the old Christian masters, Mozart
and Handel and Mendelssohn and Beetho
ven and Doddridge, whose sacred
poetry was as remarkable as his sacred
prose, and James Montgomery and William
Cowper, at last got rid of his spiritual
melancholv, and Bishop Heber, whofsang of
"Greeland's Icy Mountain and India's
Coral Strand;" and Dr. Raffles, who wrote
of "High in Yonder Realms of Light," and
Issac Watts, who went to visit bir Thomas
Abney and wife for a week and proved him
self so agreeable a guest that they made
him stay 36 years; and side by side, Augus
tus Toplcdy, who bad got over his disliko
for Methodists, and Charles Wesley
freed from his dislike for Ualvmists; and
George W. Bethune, as sweet as a song
maker as he was great as a preacher and the
autber of "The Village Hymns;" and many
who wrote in verse or song, in church or by
eventide cradle, and many who were passion
ately fond of music, but could make none
themselves. The poorest singer there more
than any earthly prima dona, and the poor

Oh that music room, the headquarters of
cadence and rhythm, symphony and chant.
psalm and antiphon! May we be there
some hour when Haydn sits at the keys of
one of his own oratorios, and David the
psalmist fingers the harp, and Miriam of the
lied Sea banks claps the cymbals, and Ga
briel puts his lips to the trumpet and the
four-and-twenty soldiers chant, and Lind
and Parepa render matchless duet in the
music room of the old heavenly homestead.
"In my Father's house are many rooms.
THE FAMILT ROOM.
Another room in our Father's house will
be the family room. It may correspond
somewhat with the family room on earth'
At morning and evening, vou know, that is
the place we meet. Though every member
of the household have a separate room, in
the family room they all gather, and joys
and sorrows and experiences of all styles are
there rehearsed. Sacred room in all our
dwellings ! Whether it be luxurious with
ottomans and divans and books in Russian
lids standing in mahogany case or there be
only a few plain chairs and a cradle. So the
family room on nigh will be the place where
the kinsfolk assemble and talk: over the
family experiences of earth, the weddings,
the births, the burials, the festal days of
Christmas and Thanksgiving raunion.
Will the children departed remain chil
dren there? Will the aged remain aged
there? Oh, no; everj thing is perfect there.
The child will go ahead to glorified maturity
and the aged will go back to glorified ma
turity. The rising sun of one will rise to
meridian and the descending sun of the
other will return to meridian. However
much we love our children on earth we
would consider it a domestic disaster if they
stayed children, and so we rejoice at their
growth here, And when we meet in the
family room of our Father's house, w will
be clad that they have grandly and glori
ously matured; while our parents who were
aged and infirm here, we shall be glad to
find restored to the most agile and vigorous
immortality tbere. If 40 or 45 or CO Years
be the apex of physical and mental lile on
earth, then the heavenlr childhood will ad
vance to that and the heavenly old age will
retreat to that. t
TALKING WITH ANGELS.
When we join them in that family room
we shall have much to tell them. We shall
want to know of them right away such
things as these: Did you see us in "this or
that or the other struggle? Did you know
when we lost our property and sympathize
with us? Did you know we had that awful
sickness? Were yon hovering anywhere
around when we plunged Into that memora
ble accident? Did you know of our back
sliding? Did you know of that moral vic
tory? Were you pleased when we started
for heaven? Did you celebrate the hour of
our conversion? And then, whether they
know it or not we will tell them all. But
they will have more to tell us than we to tell
them. Ten years on earth maybe very event
ful, but what must be the biography of ten
years in heaven? They will have to tell us
the story of coronations, story of news from
ail immensity, story of conquerors and
hierarchs, story of wrecked or ransomed
planets, story of angelic victory over dia
bolic revolts, of extinguished suns, of ob
literated constellations, of new galaxies
kindled and swung, of stranded comets, of
worlds on fire, and story of Jehovah's ma
jestic reign. If in that family room of our
Father's house we have so much to tell
them of what we have passed through since
we parted, how mnch more thrilling and
arousing that which they have to tell ns of
what they have passed through since we
parted. Surely that family room will be
one of the most favored rooms in all our
Father's house. What long lingering
there, for we shall never again be in a
"Let me open a window," said an humble
Christian servant to Lady Raffles, who, be
because of the death of her child, had shut
herself up in a dark room aud refused to see
anyone; "you have been many days in this
dark room. Are you not ashamed to grieve
In this manner, when you ought to be thank
ing God for having given you the most
beautiful child that ever was seen, and in
stead of leaving him in this world till he
should be worn with trouble, has not God
taken him to heaven in all of his beauty?
Leave off weeping and let me open a win

THERE ARE MANY ROOMS.
How would it do for my sermon to leave
you in that family room to-day? I am sure
there is no room in which you would rather
stay than in the enraptured circle of your
ascended and glorious kinsfolk. We might
visit other rooms in our Father's house.
There may be picture galleries penciled not
with earthly art, but by some process un
known in this world, preserving for the next
world the brightest and most stupendous
scenes of human history. And there may
be lines and forms of earthly beauty pre
served for heavenly inspection in something
whiter and chaster and richer than Vene
tian sculpture ever wrought. Booms beside
rooms. Booms ever rooms. Large rooms,
majestic rooms, opalescent rooms, amethys

I hope none of us will be disappointed
about getting there. There is a room for
us all if we will go and take it, but in order
to reach it it is absolutely necessary that
we take the right way, and Christ is the
way; and we must enter At the right door,
and Christ is the door; and we must start at
the right time, and the only hour you are
sure ot is tne flour tne cloct now s trices,
and the only second the one your watch is
now ticking. I hold in my hand a roll of
letters inviting you all to make that yonr
home forever. The New Testament is only
a roll of letters inviting you, as the spirit of
them practically says: "My dying yet im
mortal child in earthly neighborhood,
I have built for you a great residence. It
is full of rooms. I have furnished tVin as
no palace was ever furnished. Pearls are
nothing, emeralds are nothing, chrysophra
sus is nothing; illumined panels of sunrise
and sunset, nothing; the aurora of the
northern heavens, nothing compared with
the splendor with which I have garnitured
them. But you must be clean before you
can enter there, and so I have opened a
fountain where you may wash all your sins
away.- Come, now! Put your weary but
cleansed fet on the upward pathway. Do

IS not only a distressing complaint, of
itself, but, by causing the blood to
become depraved and the system en
feebled, is the parent of innumerable
maladies. That AVer's Sarsaparilla
is the best core for Indigestion, even
when complicated with Liver Complaint,
Is proved by the following testimony
from Mrs. Joseph Lake, of Brockw-j
"Liver complaint and indigestion
made my life a burden and came near
ending my existence. For more than
four years I suffered untold agony, was
reduced almost to a skeleton, and hardly
had strength to drag myself about. All
kinds of food distressed me, and only
the most delicate could be digested at
aii. Within the time mentioned several
physicians treated me without giving re
lief. Nothing that I took seemed to do
any permanent good until I commenced
the use of Ayer's Sarsaparilla, which
has produced wonderful results. Soon
after commencing to take the Sarsapa
rilla I could see an improvement in my
condition. My appetite began to return
and with it came the ability to digesi
all the food taken, my strength im
proved each day, and after a few
months ol faithful attention to your
directions, I found myself a well
woman, able to attend to all household
duties. The medicine has given me a
new lease of life."
