tfcPECIAL TZ1EGEAM" TO TOT DISPATCH. 1
Beooklyn, October 27. The Kev. T.
De Witt Talmace, D. D., preached to an
overflowing congregation at the Academy
of Music to-day.
Before preaching he said that a mistaken
notion was abroad that the insurance on his
destroyed church was enough to rebuild.
The repetition of disasters left us in debt.
AVehave practically built three churches
since I came to Brooklyn. First, the origi
nal tabernacle. Soon after that we made
an enlargement that cost almost as much as
a church. ,A few years after it all burned.
Then we put up the building recently de
stroyed, and reared it in a time when the
whole country was in its worst financial
distress. It was these repeated disasters
that left us in debt My congregation
have done magnificently, but any ahurch
would be in debt after so many
calamities. Sow for the first time we
are out of debt. But we need at least 100,-
000 to bulla a church large enough, and we
call on people of all creeds and all lands to
help. Before I help dedicate a new church
we must have every dollar of it paid. I
will never again be pastor of a church in
debt. It has crippled us in all our move
ments, and I shall never again wear the
shackles. I have for the last 16 years
preached to about 5,000 people sitting and
standing, twice a Sabbath, but everybody
knows that we need a place that will hold
8,000. I shall not be surprised if some man
of wealth shall say: "Here are 5100,000 it
you will put up a memorial structure, and
call it after the name of my departed father
or child whose memory I want put before
all nations and for all time." And so it
would be done.

Away all tears from their eyes." Eer. Tii,
17. He said:
Biding across a Western prairie, wild
flowers up to the hub of the carriaee wheel,
and while a long distance from any shelter,
there came a sudden shower, and while the
rain was falling in torrents, the sun was
Ehining as brightly- as I ever'saw it shine;
and I thought, what a beautiful spectacle
this is! So the tears of the Bible are not
midnight storm, but rain on pansied prairies
in God's sweet and golden sunlight. You
remember that bottle which David labeled
as containing tears, and Mary's tears, and
Paul's tears, and Christ's tears, and the
harvest of joy that is to spring from tne
sowing of tears. God mixes them. God
rounds them. God shows them where
to fall. God exhales them. A
census is taken of them, and there is a
record as to the moment when they are born,
and as to the place of their grave. Tears of
had men are not kept. Alexander, in his
Borrow, had the hair clipped from his
horses and mules, and made a great ado
about his grief, but in all the vases of
heaven there is not one of Alexander's tears.
1 speak of the tears of the good. Alas! me!
they are falling all the time. In summer,
vou sometimes hear the growling thunder.
and you see there is a storm miles awav;
but you know from the drift of the clouds
that'itwill not come anywhere near yon.
So, though it may be all bright around
about us, there is a shower of -trouble some
where all the time. Tears! Tears!
What is the use of them anyhow? Why
not substitute laughter? Why not make
this world where all the people are well and
eternal strangers to pain and aches? What
is the use of an eastern storm when we might
have a perpetual nor'wester?
QUESTIONS THAT APBLT.
Why, when a family is put together, not
have them all stay, or if thev must be trans
planted to make other homes, then have
them all live? the family record telling a
story of marriages and births, but of no
deaths. Why not have the harvests chase
each other without fatiguing toil? Why
the hard pillow, the hard crust, the hard
struggle? It is easy enough to explain a
Emile; but, come now, and bring all your
dictionaries and all your philosophies and
all your religions, and help me explain a
Hear me, then, while I discourse to you
of the uses of trouble.
first It is the design of trouble to keep
this world from being too attractive. Some
thing must be done to make us willing to
quit this existence. If it were not for
tronble this world would be a good enough
heaven for me. You and I would be willing
to take a lease of this life for a hundred
million years if there were no trouble. The
earth cushioned and upholstered and pil
lared and chandeliered with such expense,
no story of other worlds could enchant us.
We would sayi "Let well enough alone.
If you want to die andhave your body dis
integrated in the dust, and your soul go out
on a celestial adventure, then you can go;
hut this world is good enough for me." You
might as well go to a man who has just
entered the Louvre at Paris, and tell him to
hasten off to the picture galleries of Venice
or Florence. "Why," he would say, "what
is the use of my going there? There are
Hembrandts and Rubens and Raphaels here
that I haven't looked at yet"
THE JIISSIOS- OF TBOUBLES.
No man wants togo out of this world, or
out of any house, until he -has a better
house. To cure this wish to stay here, God
must somehow create a disgust for our sur
roundings. How shall He do it? Hejcan
not afford to deface his horizon, or to tear
off a fiery panel from the sunset, or to sub
tract an anther from the water lily, or to
Danish the pungent aroma Irom the mignon
ette, or to drag the robes of the morning
in mire. How, then, are we to be
made willing to leave? Here is where
trouble comes in. After a man
his had a good deal of trouble, he says:
Well, I am. ready to go. If there is a
, house somewhere whose root doesn't leak, I
Arould like to live there. If there h an
atmosphere somewhere that does not'distress
the lungs, I would like to breathe it If
there is a societv somewhere where there is
no tittle-tattle, I would lite to liye there.
If there is a home circle somewhere where
I can find my lost friends, I would like to
go there." He used to read the first part of
the Bible chiefly, now he reads the last part
of the Bible chiefly. Why has he changed
Genesis for Bevelation? Ah! he used to be
anxious chiefly to know how this
world was made, and all about its geo
logical construction. Now he is chiefly
anxious to know how ihe next world was
made, and how it looks, and who lives
there, and how they dress. He reads Beve
lation ten times now where he reads Genesis
once. The old story, "Iu the beginning
God created the heavens and the earth,"
does not thrill him half so much as the
other story, "X saw a new heaven and a new
earth." The old man's hand trembles as he
turns over this apocalyptic leaf, and he has
to take out his handkerchief to wipe his
spectacles. Tnat book of Bevelations is a
prospectus now of the country into which
he is soon to immigrate; the country in
which he has lots already laid out, and ave
nues opened, and trees planted, and man
TO GLOBY WITH ONE STROKE.
The thought of that blessed place comes
over me mightily, and I declare that if this
house were a great ship, and you all were
passengers on board it, and one hand could
' launchihat Bhip into the glories of heaven,
X should be tempted to take the responsi
bility and launch yon all into glory with
one 'stroke, holding on to the side of the
, boat until I could get in myself. And yet
there are people nere to whom this world is
brighter than-heaven. Well, dear souls, I
do not blame you. It is natural. But after
a while you will be ready to go. It was not
until Job had been worn out with bereave
ments and carbuncles and a pest of a wife
that he wanted to see God. It was not until
the prodigal got tired of living among the
hogs that he wanted to go to his father's
house. It is the ministry of trouble to make
this world worth less and heaven worth
Again, it is the use of trouble to make us
feel our complete dependence upon God.
King Alphonso said that if he had been
present at the creation he could have made
a better world than this. What a pity he
was not present! I do not know what God
will do when some men die. Men think
they can do anything until God shows them
they can do no'thing.at all. We lay our
great plans and we like to execute them. It
looks big. We never leel our dependence
upon God until we get tronble. I was rid
ing with my little child along the road, and
she asked if she might drive. I said, "Cer
tainly." WHEN WE BEACH THE KAEEOWS.
I handed over the reins to her, and I had
to admire the glee with which she drove.
But after a while we met a team and we had
to turn out The road was narrow, and it
was sheer down on both sides. Shehanded
the reins over to me, and said: "I think you
had better take charge of the horse." So
we are all children; and on this road of life
we like to drive. It gives one such an ap
pearance of superiority and power. It looks
big. But after a while we meet some ob
stacle, and we have to turn out and the
road is narrow, and it is sheer down on both
sides; and then we are willing that God
should take the reins and drive. Ahl my
friends, we get upset so often because we do
not hand over the reins soon enough.
Can you not tell me when you hear a man
pray, whether he has ever had any trouble?
I can. The cadence, the phraseology indi
cate it Why do women pray better than
men? Because they have had more trouble.
Before a man has had any tronble, his pray
ers are poetic, and he begins away up among
the sun, moon and stars, and gives the Lord
a great deal of astronomical information that
must be highly gratifying. He then comes
on down gradually over tablelands to "for
ever and ever, amen." But after a man has
had trouble, prayer is with him a taking
hold of the arm of God and crying out tor
help. I have heard earnest prayers on two
or three occasions that I remember.
Once, on the Cincinnati express train,
going at 40 miles the hour, the train
jumped the track, and we were near a chasm
80 feet deep; and the men who, a few min
utes before, had been sweannir rfind blas
pheming God, began to pull and jerk at the
bell rope, and got up on the backs of the
seats and cried out, "O God, save us!"
A TIME WHE1T MEN PBATED.
There was another time about 800 miles
out at sea,, on a foundering steamer, after
the last lifeboat had been split finer than
kindling wood. They prayed then. Why
is it you so often hear people, in reciting
the last experience of some friend, say: "He
made the most ' beautiful prayer I ever
heard?" What makes it beautiful? It is
the earnestness of it Oh, I tell you a man
is in earnest when his stripped and naked
soul wades out in the soundless, shoreless,
bottomless ocean of eternity.
It is trouble, my friends, that makes us
feel our dependence upon God. We do not
know our own weakness or God's strength
until the last plank breaks. It is con
temptible in us when there is nothing else to
take hold of, that we catch hold of God
only. A man is unfortunate in business.
He'has to raise a great deal of money, and
raise it quickly. He borrows on word and
note all he can borrow. After a while he
puts a mortgage on his house. Aftera
while he puts a second mortgage on his
house. Then he puts a lienon his furni
ture. Then he makes over his life insur
ance, xnen ne assigns an nis property.
Then he goes to his father-in-law and asks
Well, having failed everywhere, com
pletely failed, he gets down on his knees
and says: ' u iiora, i nave tnea everyooay
and everything; now help me out of this
financial trouble." He makes God the last
resort instead of the first resort. There are
men who have paid ten cents on a dollar
who could have paid a hundred cents on a
dollar if they had gone to God in time.
Why, you do" not know who Ihe Lord is.
He is not an autocrat seated far up in a
palace from which he emerges once a year,
preceded by heralds swinging swords to
clear the way. No. But a father willing,
at our call, to stand by us in every crisis
and predicament of life.
TO ALL BUT THE BEST FBIEND.
I tell you what some of you business men
make me think ot. A young man goes off
from home to earn his fortune. He goes
with his mother's consent and benediction.
Sbe has large wealth: but he want? to make
his own fortune. He goes far away, falls
sick, gets out of money. He sends lor the
hotel keeper where he is staying, asking for
lenience, and the answer he gets is: "If you
don't pay up Saturday night you'll be re
moved to the hospital." The young man
sends to a comrade 'in the same building.
No help. He writes to a banker who was a
friend of his deceased father. No relief.
He writes to an old schoolmatebut gets no
help. Saturday night comes, and he is
moved to the hospital.
Getting there, he is frenzied with grief;
and he borrows a sheet of paper and a post
age stamp, and he sits down, and he writes
home, saying; "Dear mother, I am sick
unto death. Come." It is ten minutes of
10 o'clock when she gets the letter. At 10
o'clock the train starts. She is five minutes
from the depot She gets there in time to
have five minutes to spare. She wonders
why a train that can go SO miles an hour
cannot go CO piles an ho'ur. She rushes into
the hospital. " She says: "My son, what
does all this mean? Why didn't you send
for me? You sent to everybody but me.
You knew I could and would help you. Is
this the reward I get for my kindness to you
always?" She bundles him up, takes him
home and gets him well very soon.
Now, some of you treat God just as that
young man treated his mother. When
you get into a financial perplexity you call
on the banker, you call on the broker, you
call on your creditors, you call on your
lawyer tor legal counsel; you call upon
everybody, and when you cannot get any
help, then you go to God. You say : "O,
Lord, I come to thee. Help me now out of
THE KESPONSE IS CERTAIN.
And the Lord comes, though it is the
"eleventh hour. He says: "Why did you
not send tor me before ? As one whom his
mother comforteth, so will I comfort you."
It is to throw us back upon an all-comforting
God that we have this ministry of tears.
Again, it is the use of trouble to capaci
tate us for the office of sympathy. The
priests, under the old dispensation, were set
apart by having water SDrinkled on their
hands, feet and head; and by the.sprinkling
of tears people are now set apart to the office
of sympathy. When we are in prosperity
we like to have a great many young people
around us, and we laugh when tbey laugh,
and we romp when they romp, and we sing
when they sing; but when we have trouble
we like plenty of old folks around. Why?
They know how to talk. Take an aged
mother, 70 years of age, anfi she is almost
omnipotent "in comlort.- Why? She has
been through it all. At 7 o'clock in the
morning she goes over to comfort a young
mother who has just lost her babe.
Grandmother knows all about that
trouble. Fifty years ago she felt it At 12
o'clock of that day she goes over to comfort
a widowed soul. 'She knows all about that.
She has been walking in that dark valley 20
years. At 4 o'clock in the afternoon some
one knocks at the door, wanting bread. Sbe
knows all abont that Two 'or three times
in her life she came to her last loa At 10
o'clock that night she goes over to sit up
with someone severely sick. Sbe knows all
about it She knows all about fevers and
pleurisies and broken bones. She has been
doctoring all her life, spreading plasters
and pouring out bitter drops, and shaking
up hot pillows, and contriving things to
tempt a poor appetite. Doctors Abernethy,
and Bush and Hosack and Harvey were
great doctors, bnt
THE GBEATEST DOCTOB
the world ever saw it an old Chrislian
woman. Dear met Do we not remember
her about the room when we were sick in
our boyhood? Was there anyone who could
ever so touch a sore without hurting it?
And when she lifted her spectacles against
her wrinkled forehead, so she could look
closer at the wound, it was three-fourths
healed. And when the Lord tookher home,
although you may have been men and
women 30, 40, 50 vears of age, jou lay on
the coffin lid and sobbed as though you were
only 5 or 10 years of age. O man, praise
God if you have in your memory the picture
of an honest, sympathetic, kind, self sacri
ficing, Christ-like mother. Oh, it takes
these people who have had trouble to com
fort others in trouble. Where did Paul get
the ink with which to write his comforting
eDistle? Where did David get the ink to
write his comforting Psalms? Where did
John get the ink to write his comforting
Revelation?. They got it out of their own
tears. When a man has gone through the
Curriculum and has taken a course of dun
geons and imprisonments and shipwrecks,
he is qualified for the work of sympathy.
When I began to preach, my sermons on
the subject of trouble were all poetic and in
semi-blank verse; but God knocked the
blank verse out of me long ago, and I have
found out that I cannot comfort people ex
cept as I myself have been troubled, God
make me the son of consolation to the peo
ple. I would rather be the means of sooth
ing one perturbed spirit to-day than to play
a tune that would set all the sons of mirth
reeling in the dance. I am an herb doctor.
I put into the caldron the root out of dry
ground without form of comeliness. Then I
put in the Bose of Sharon and the Lily of
the Valley. Then I put into the caldron
some of the leaves from the Tree of Life,
and the branch that was thrown into the
GBIEE OF BETHANT AND GOLGOTHA.
Then I pour in the tears of Bethany and
Golgotha; then I stir them up. Then I
kindle under the caldron a fire made out
of the wood of the cross, and one drop of
that potion will cure the worst sickness that
ever afflicted a hnman soul. Mary and
Martha shall receive their Lazarus from the
tomb. The damsel shall rise. , And on the
darkness shall break the morning, and God
will wipe all the tears from their eyes.
You know on a well-spread table the food
becomes more delicate at the last T have
fed vou to-day with the bread of consolation.
Let'the table now be cleared, and let us set
on the chalice of heaven. Let the King's
cup bearers come in. Good morning.
Heaven! "Oh," says some critic in the
audience, "the Bible contradicts itself. It
intimates again and again that there are to
be no tears in heaven, and if there be no
tears in heaven, how is it possible that God
will wipe any away!" I answer, have you
never seen a child crying one moment and
laughing the next; and while she was
laughing, you saw the tears still on her
face? And, perhaps, you stopped her in
the very midst ot her resumed glee, and
wiped off those delayed tears. So, I think,
after the heavenly raptures have come upon
us, there may be the mark of some earthly
grief, and while those tears are glittering in
the light of the jasper sea, God will wipe
them away. How well he can do that
Jesus had enough trial to make him sym
pathetic with all trial. The shortest verse
in the Bible tells the story: "Jesus wept."
The scar on the back of either hand, the
scar on the arch of either foot, the row of
scars along the line of the hair, will keep
all heaven thinking. Oh, that great weeper
is just the one to silence all earthly trouble,
wipe out all stainsof earthly gnef. Gentlel
Why, his step is softer than the step of the
dew. It will not be a tyrant bidding you
to hush up your crying.
ATBTLY PABENTAL LOVE.
It will be a Father who will take you on
His left arm, His face gleaming into yours,
while with the soft tips of the fingers of the
right hand, Be shall wipe away all tears
from your eyes. I have noticed when the
children get hart, and their mother is at
home, they go right past me and to her. I
am of no account
So, when the soul comes up into heaven
out of the wounds of this life, it will not
stop to look for Paul, or Moses, or David, or
John. These did very well once, but now
the soul shall rush past, crying: "Where
is Jesus? Where is Jesus?" Dear Lord,
what a magnificent thing to die if tbou shalt
thus wipe away our tears. Methinksit will
take us some time to get used to heaven; the
fruits of God without one speck; the fresh
pastures without one nettle; the orchestra
without one snapping string; the river of
gladness without one torn bank; the sol
ferinos and the saffron of sunrise and sun
set swallowed up in the eternal day that
beams from God's countenance!
Why should I wish to linger in the wild,
When Thou art waiting, Father, to receive Thy
Still if we could get any appreciation of
what God has in reserve for us, it would
make us so homesick we would he unfit for
our every-day work. Prof. Leonard, for
merly of Iowa University, put in my hands
a meteoric stone, a stone thrown off from
some other world to this. How suggestive
itwastome. And I have to tell you the
best representations we have of heaven are
only aerolites flung off from that world which
rolls on, bearing tne multitudes of the re
deemed. We analyze these aerolites, and find
them crystallizations of tears. No wonder,
flung off from heaven. "God shall wipe
away all tears from their eyes."

get news there of a Christian's death from
what it is here. It is the difference between
embarkation and coming into port. Every
thing depends upon which side of the river
you stand when you hear of a Christian's
death. If you stand .on this side of the
river you mourn that they go. If you stand
on the other side of the river you rejoice
that thev come. Oh, the ditterence between
a funeral on earth and a jubilee in heaven
between requiem here and triumphal march
there parting here and reunion there. To
gether! Have you thought of it? Thev
are together. Not one of your departed
friends in one laud and another in another
land; but together, in different rooms of the
same house the house of many mansions.
I never appreciated that thonght so much
as when wo laid away in her last slumber
my sister Sarah. Standing there in the
village cemetery, I looked around and said:
"There is father, there is mother, there is
grandfather, there is grandmother, there are
whole circles of kindred ; " and I thought to
mvself, "Together in the grave together in
glory." I am so impressed with the thought
tbat I do not think it is any fanaticism
when some one is going from this world to
the next if you make them the bearer of
dispatches to your friends who are gone,
saying: "liive my love to my parents, give
my love to my children, give my love to my
old comrades who are in glory, and tell
them I am trying to fight the good fiht of
faith, and I will join them after a while."
I believe the message will be delivered;
andl believe it will increase the gladness of
those who are before the throne. Together
are they, all their tears gone. No trouble
getting good society for them. All kings,
queens, princes and princesses.

A Word About Catarrh.
"It is the mucous membrane, tbat wonderful
semi-fluid envelope surrounding the delicate
tissues of the air and food passages, that Catarrh
makes Its stronghold. Once established, It eats
into the very vitals, and renders life but a long
drawn breath of misery and disease, dulling the
sense of hearing, trammeling the power of
speech, destroying the faculty of smell, tainting
the breath, and Killing the refined pleasures of
taste. Insidiously, by creeping on from a simple
cold in the head, it assaults the membraneous
lininc and envelops the bones, eating through
the delicate coats and causing inflammation,
sloughing and death. Nothing short of total
eradication will secure health to the patient and

MR. H. B. KUNKLE.
Besiding at Apollo, and foreman of a sec
tion of the West Penn Eailroad, having a
large number of men in his charge, has for
many years been a great sufferer from
Catarrh of the Stomach and a diseased con
dition of the liver. His stomach gave him
mneh nain and it felt sore on pressure. His
bowels were constipated, and he had a very
dark, sallow complexion. He had no ap
petite, and what little food he did eat seemed
to do him no good, for he had a sick,
nauseous feeling after eating. In fact the
very sight of food would often make him
sick at the stomach. He had a dnll pain
over his eyes. He could not sleep, and he
was always tired, and more so on getting up
in the morning than when he went to bed.
As the disease extended to his throat and
lungs he did much hawking and spitting and
he felt a weight and pressure in his lnngs.
It was while in this condition that he con
sulted the Physicians of the Catarrh and
Dyspepsia Institute, at 323 Penn avenue,
who told him he conld yet be cured.
Although he said he had already treated
with fiiteen doctors, receiving no permanent
benefit, and had but little taith, he began
treatment. Of the result he says:
"Mj disease was of 18 years standing. I
now feel like a new man. I have a good
appetite, sleep well, feel rested in the morn
ing and am glad to state that I have been cured
