A STKOflG DOCTRINE
Is What is Needed by Christians to
Uattle With the World.
THE BOWER OF TBEE BRANCHES
Chosen as the Topic of the Sunday Dis
course of Dr. Talmage.
KEEPING A JIAN ALIVE J3Y BELIGION
tPrECIAL TXXXQKAX TO OE DISFS.TOII. J
The Hamptons, July 14. The subject
of Iter. Dr. T. De Witt Talmage's sermon
to-day was:;"The Bower of Tree Branches."
His text was Xebtiiiah viii., IS: "Go iorth
unto the mount and fetch olive branches
and pine branches and myrtle branches of
thick trees, to make booths." Following is
It seems as if Mount Olivet were un
moored. The people have gone into the
mountain, and have cut off tree branches,
and put them on their shoulders, and they
come forth now into the streets ot Jerusa
lem, and on the house tops, and they twist
these branches into arbors or booths. Then
the people come forth from their comfort
able homes and dwell for seven days in
these booths or arbors. Why do they do
that? Well, it is a great festal time. It is
the feast of tabernacles; and these peopleare
going to celebrate the desert travel of their
fathers and their deliverance from their
troubles, the experience of their fathers
when, traveling in the desert, they lived in
booths on their way to the land of Canaan.
And so these booths also become highly
suggestive I will not say they are neces
sarily typical, but highly suggestive of
our march toward heaven, and of the fact
that we are only living temporarilv here, as
it were, in booths or arbors, on our way to
the Canaan of eternal rest
And what was said to the Hebrews liter
ally may to-day be said figuratively to all
this audience. Go forth into the mountain,
and fetch olive branches and pine branches
and myrtle branches and palm branches
aud branches of thick trees to make booths.
Yes, we are only here in a temporary resi
dence. We are marching on. The merchant
princes who used to live in Bowling Green,
New York, have passed away, and their
residences are now the fields of cheap mer
chants. Where are the men who 50 years
ago owned New York? Passed on.
02? T1IE MAECH.
There is no use in our driving our stakes
too deep into the earth; we are on tbe march.
The generations that have preceded us have
gone so far on that we cannot even hear the
sound of their footsteps. They have gone
over the bills, and ueureto follow them.
But, blessed be God, we are not in this
world left out of doors and unsheltered.
There are gospel booths, or gospel arbors, in
which our souls are to be comforted. Go
forth unto the mountain and fetch olive
branches and pine branches and myrtle
branches and palm branches and branches
of thick trees, and build booths.
Well, now we are to-day to construct a
gospel arbor, or gospel booth; and how shall
we construct it? Well, we must get all the
tree branches and build. According to my
text we must go up into the mount and
bring olive branches. What does that
The olive tree grows in warm climates,
and it reaches the height of 20 or 22 feet, a
straight stem, and then an offshoot from that
Etem. And then people come, and they
strip off these branches sometimes, and
when in time of war the general of one army
takes one of these olive branches and roes
out to the general of another army, what
does that mean? Why, it means, unsaddle
the war chargers. It means hang up the
war knapsacks. It is but a beautiful way
ot saying peacei
JCow, if we are to-dav going to succeed in
building this gospel arbor, we must go into
the mount of God's blessing, and fetch the
olive branches, and whatever else we must
have, we must have at least two olive
branches peace with God and peace with
man. When I say peace with God, I do
not mean to represent God as a bloody chief
tain, having a grudge against us. but I do
mean to affirm there is no more antagonism
between a hound and a hare, between a
hawk and a pullet, between elephant and
swine, than there is hostility between holi
ness and sin. And if God is all holiness,
and we are all sin, there must be a read
justment, there must be a reconstruction,
there must be a treaty, there must be a
stretching forth of olive branches.
There is a great law suit going on now,
and it is a law suit which man is bringing
against nis Maker; that law suit is now on
the calendar. It is the human versus the
divine; it is iniquity versus the immaculate;
it is weakness versus omnipotence. Han
began it; God did not begin the law suit
We began it; we assaulted our Maker, aud
the soonerwe end this part of the struggle
in which the finite attempts to overthrow the
infinite and omnipotent, the sooner we end
it the better.
Travelers tell us there is no such place as
Mount Calvary, that it is only a hill, only
an insignificant hill; bnt I persist in call
ing it the Mount of God's divine mercy and
love, far grander than any other place on
earth, grander than the Alp's or Himalayas,
and there are no other hills as compared
with it; and I have noticed in every sect
where the cross of Christ is set forth it is
planted with olive branches. And all we
Lave to do is to get rid of this war between
God and ourselves, of which we are all tired.
We want to back out of the war, we want
to get rid of this hostility. All we have to
do is just to get upon the mount of God's1
blessing, and pluck these olive branches
and wave them before the throne. Peace
through our Lord Jesus Christl
Oh, it don't make much difference what
the world thinks of you what this King,
that Queen, that Senator thinks of you. But
come into the warm, intimate, glowing and
everlasting relationship with the God of
the round universe; that ii the joy that
makes a hallelujah seem stupid. Ah, why
do wc want to have peace through our Lord
Jesus Christ? Why. if we had gone on in
10,000 years of war against God, we could
not have captured so much as a sword or a
cavalry stirrup, or twisted ofl one of the
wheels of the chariot of hit omnipotence.
But the moment we bring this olive branch
God and all heaven come on our side.
Peace through our Lord Jesus Christ; and
no other kind of peace is worth anything.
PEACE WITH MAN.
But then we must have that other olive
branch, peace with man. Now it is very
easy to get up a quarrel. There are gun
powdery Christians all around us, and one
match of provocation will set them off. It
is easy enough to get up a quarrel. But,
my brother, don't you tljink you had better
have your horns sawed ofl?" Had vou not
better make an apolocy? Had you "not bet
ter submit to a little humiliation? Oh, you
say. until that man takes the first step I
will never be at peace with him; nothing
will be done until he is ready to take the
first step. You arc a pre,tty Christian.
When would this world be saved it Christ
had not taken the first step? Wc were in
the wrong. Christ was in tbe right all
right and forever right. And yet He took
the first step. And instead of going nnd
getting a knotty scourge with which to whip
your antagonist, vour enemy, you had bet
ter get up on tlie radiant mount where
Christ suffered for His enemies, and just
take an olive branch, not stripping off the
solt, cool, lragrant leaves, but leaving them
them all on, and then try on them that gos
pel switch. It won't hurt them, and it will
save you. Peace with God; peace with man.
If you cannot take those two doctrines you
are no Christian.
Blest be the tie that binds
Our liearts In Christian low:
The fellowship of kindred minds
Is like to that above.
From sorrow, toil and pain,
And sin we shall be tree;
And perfect love and friendship reign
Through all eternity.
But my text goes further. It says: Go
up into the mountain and fetch olive
branches and pine branches. Now what is
suggested by pine branches? The pine tree
is healthy; it is aromatic; it is evergreen.
How often the physician says to bis invalid
patients: "Go and have a breath of the
piucil That will invigorate you." Why
do sueh thousands of people go South every
year? It is not merely to get to a warmer
climate, but to get-to" the influeuceof the
pine. There is health in it. and this pine
branch of the text suggests thehealthfulness
of our holy religion; it is lull of health,
health for' all, health for the mind, health
for the soul.
kept aite ur eeligion.
I knew an aged man who had no capital
of physical health. He had had all the dis
eases you could imagine; he did not eat
enough to keep a child alive; he lived on a
beverage ot hosannas. He lived high, for
he diced every day with tbe king. He was
kept alive simply bv the force of our holy
religion. It is a healthy religion; healthy
for the eye, healthy for the hand, healthy
for the feet, healthy for the he'art, healthy
for the liver, healthy for the spleen, health v
for the whole man. It gives a man such
peace, such quietness, such independence
of circumstances, such holy equipoise. Oh,
that we all possessed it, thai we possessed
it now. I mean that it is healthy if a man
gets enough of it. Now, there are some
eople who get just enough religion to
other them, just enough religion to make
them sick, but if a man take a full, deep,
round inhalation of these pine branches of
the gospel arbor, he will find it buoyant,
exuberant, undying, immortal health.
But this pine branch of my text also sug
gests tne simple iact uiai i. is an evergreen.
What does this pine branch care for the
snow on its brow? It is only a crown of
glory. The winter cannot lreeze it out
This evergreen tree branch is as beautiful
in winter as it is in the summer. And that
is the characteristic of our holy re
ligion; in the sharpest, coldest winter of
misfortune and disaster, it is as good a re
ligion as itisln the bright summer sunshine.
Well, now that is a practical truth. .For if
I should go up and down these aisles, I
would not find in this house SO people who
had had no trouble. But there are some of
you who have had especial trouble. God
only knows what you go through with. Oh,
how many bereavements, how many pover
ties, how many persecutions! How many
misrepresentations! And cow, my brother,
you have tried everything else, why don't
you try this evergreen religion? It is just
as good for you now as it was in the days of
vour prosperity; it is better for you. Per
haps some of you; feel almost like Muckle
Backie, the fisherman, who was chided one
day because be kept on working, although
that very day he buried his child.
A TEBTINENT ANSWEE.
They came to him and said: "It is in
decent for you to be mending that boat
when this afternoon you buried your child."
And the fisherman looked up and said:
"Sir, it is very easy for you gentlefolks to
stay in the. house with your handkerchiefs
to your eyes in grief; but, sir, ought I to let
the other five children starve because one of
them is drowned? No, sir, wc maun work,
we maun work, though our hearts beat like
You may have had accumulations of
sorrow and misfortune. They come in flocks;
they come in herds upon your soul; and yet
I have to tell you that this religion can
console you, that it can help you, that it can
deliver you if nothing else will. Do you
tell me that the riches and the pains of
'this world can console you? How was it
with the man who had such a loud
ness for money that when he was sick he
ordered a basin of gold pieces to be brought
to him, and he put his gouty hands down
among the gold pieces, cooling his hands off
in them, and the rattle and rolling of these
gold pieces were his amusement and enter
tainment Ah, the gold and silver, the
honors, the emoluments of this world are a
poor solace for a perturbed spirit You
want something better than this world can
give. A young prince, when the children
came around to play with him, refused to
nlnir- TTft jtnM: T will nlav nnlv with
kings. And it might be supposed thai you
would throw away all other solace be
fore this regal satisfaction, this imperial
joy. Ye who are sons and daughters of the
Lord Almighty ought to play only with
Tbe hill ot Zion yields
A tbousaod sacred sweets
Before we reach the heavenly fields
Or walk the golden streets.
But my text takes a further step and it
says, "Go into the mountain and fetch olive
branches and pine branches and palm
branches." Now the palm tree was
VERY MUCH nONOEED
by the ancients. It had 300 different uses.
The iruit was conserved; the sap was a bev
erage; tbe stem was ground up lor food for
camels, the base of the leaves was turned
into hats and mats and baskets; and the
leaves were carried in victorious processions;
and from the root to the top of the highest
leaf there was usefulness. The tree grew
85 feet in height sometimes, and spread
broad leaves four and five yards long; it
meant usefulness, and it meant victory;
usefulness for what it produced, victory be
cause it was brought into celebrations of
triumph. And oh, how much we want the
palm branches in the churches of Jesus
Christ at this time! A great manv Chris
tians don't amount to anything. You have
to shove them out of the way when the
Lord's chariots come along. We don't
want any more of that kind of Christians
in the Church.
The old maxim says: "Do not put all
your eggs into one basket;" but I have to
tell you in this matter of religion you had
better give your all to God, and then get in
yourself. "Oh," says some one, "my busi
ness is to sell silks and cloths." Well,
then, my brother, sell silks and cloths to
the glory of God. And some one says:
"My business is to raise corn and carrots."
Then, my brother, raise corn and carrots to
the glory of God. And someone says: "My
business is to manufacture horseshoenails."
Then manufacture horseshoe nails to the
glory of God. There is nothing for you to
do that you ought to do but for tbe glory of
Usefulness is typified by the palm tree.
Ah, we don't want in tbe Church any more
people that are merely weeping willows,
sighing into tbe water, standing and admir
ing their long lashes in the glassy spring.
No wild'eherry, dropping bitter fruit We
want palm trees, holding something for
God, something for angels, something for
man. I am tired and sick of this flat, tame,
insipid, satin slippered, namby-pamby,
highty-tlghty religion! It is worth nothing
for this world, and it is destruction for
JlLJj that is needed.
Give me 600 men and women fully con
secrated to Christ, and we will take any city
for God in three years. Give me 10,000
men and women fully up to the Christian
standard; in ten years 10,000 of them would
take the whole earth for God. But when
are we going to begin?
Ledyard, the great traveler, was brought
before the Geographical Society of Great
Britain, and they wanted him to make some
explorations in Africa, and they showed
him all tbe perils, and all the hard work,
and all tbe exposure, and after they bad
told him what they wanted him to 'do in
Africa, they said to him: "Now, Ledyard,
when are you ready to start?" He said:
"To-morrow morning." The learned men
were astonished; they thought he would
take weeks or m nths to get ready. Well,
noffj yon tell me you want to be earnest for
Christ; you want to be useful for Christian
service. When are you going to begin?
Ob, that vou have the decision to say, "To
Go now into tbe mount and gather the
palm branches. But the palm branch also
meant victory. In all ages, in all lands,
tbe palm branch means victory. We ere by
nature tbe servants or Satan. He stole us,
he has his eye on us, he wants to keep us.
The word comes from our Father that if we
will try to break lhote from this doing of
wrong, our Father will help us; and some
day we rouse up, and we look the black
tyrant in tbe face, and we fly at him, and
we wrestle him down, and we nnt our heel
on his neck, and we grind him in the .dust, i
and we say, "Victory, victoiy, through our
Lord Jesus ChristJ" Oh want a grand thing
it is to have sin under foot and a wasted Hie
behind our backs. "Blessed is he whose
transgression is forgiven, and whose sin is
covered." "But," says the man; "I feel so
sick and worn out with the ailments ot life."
You are going to be more than conqueror.
"But," says the man, "I am so tempted, I
am so pursued in life." You are going to
be more thafl conqueror. "I, who have so
many ailments and heartaches, going to be
more than conqueror?"
each in his place.
Yes, unless you are so self-conceited that
you want to manage all the affairs of your
life yourseH instead of letting God manage
them. Do you want to drive and have God

God to be my leader." Well, then, you will
be more than conqueror. Your last sickness
will come, and tbe physicians in the next
room will be talking about what they will
do for you. What difference -will it make
what they do for you? You are going to
be well, everlastingly well. And when the
spirit has fled the body your friends will be
talking as to whare they shall bury you.
What difference does it make to you where
they bury you? The angel of the resurrec

and all the cemeteries of the earth are in

would strike it upon bis knee, and then put
the tuning fork to his ear to catch the right

don't you think we had better De catching

City of Eternity, to thy orldal halls
From this prison wonld I flee:
Ah, glory I that's for you and me.
My text brings up one step further. It
says, go forth into tbe mount and fetch
olive branches and pine branches and
myrtle branches and palm branches and
branches of thick trees. Now, you know
very well that a booth or arbor made of
slight branches would not stand. The first
blast of the tempest would prostrate It So,
then, the booth or arbor must have four
stout poies to hold up tbe arbor or booth;
and hence for tbe building of the arbor for
this world we must have stout branches of
thick trees. And so it is in the gospel ar
bor. Blessed bo God that we have a
brawny Christianity, not one easily upset
The storms of life will come upon us, and
we want strong doctrine; not only love, but
justice; not only invitation but warning. It
is a mighty gospel; it is an omnipotent gos
pel. There are the stout branches of thick
trees. I remember what Mr. Finney said
in a schoolhouse in this State. The village
was so bad it was called Sodom, and it was
said to have only one good man in all the
village, and he was called Lot; and Mr.
Fipney, preaching,described tbe destruction
of Sodom, and tbe preacher declared that
God would rain destruction upon his hearers
unless they, too, repented. And the people
in the schoolhouse sat and ground their
teeth in anger, and clenched their fists In
indignation; but before be was through
with his sermon they got down on their
knees and cried for mercy while
mercy could be found. Oh, it is a mighty
gospel; not only an invitation, but a warn
ing; an omnipotent truth, stout branches of
thick trees. Well, my friends, I have
shown you here is the olive branch of peace,
here is the pine branch of evergreen gospel
consolation, here the palm tree branch of
usefulness and victory, and here are the
stout branches of thick trees. The gospel
arbor is done. The air is aromatic of heaven.
The leaves rustle with the gladness ot God.
Come into the arbor. I went out at differ
ent times with a fowler to the mountains to
patch pigeons; and we made our. booth and
we sat "in that booth and watched for tbe
pigeons to come. And we found flocks in
the sky, and after a while theydropped into
the net and we were successful. So I come
now to the door of this gospel booth and I
look out I see flocks of souls flying hither
and flying thither. Oh, that they might
come like clouds and as doves to the win
dow. Come into the booth. Come into the

Cheyenne Kivee Agency, Dak.
July 14. The commissioners arrived at this
agency yesterday morning, and held their
first council in the afternoon. The usual(
lull explanations of the act of Congress were
made. The Indians were asked toj discuss
the matter among themselves and prepare
to meet the commission again on Monday.
From such information as can be obtained,
it is impossible to make any predictions as
to the result at this agency. There seems to
be conflicting interests here which have not
been met with at other agencies.
Among these are the cattle interests of
several of the half-breeds living here, who
have large herds ranging on the lands which
are ceded if the present bill is accepted.
This fact, in addition to the disinclination
of tbe older chiefs to make any change,
makes the work very formidable. The de
meanor of the Indians at the council gave
no encouragement that they were in favor of
the bill. There are 730 votes here.
