fSriCIAL TO Tir DISPiTCn.1
Joppa, December X. To-day is raemor
nble in the sacred history of Joppa, the
Eer. T. De "Witt Talmage, D. D., preach
ing here to a company of Christian people
of various denominations on "The Birth
place of Sewing Societies." He took for
his text Acts ix., 39: "And all the widows
etood by him weepinc, and showing the
coats and garments which Dorcas made
virile 6he -was with them." The preacher
Christians of Joppa! Impressed as I am
"with your mosque, the first I ever saw, and
stirred as I am with the lact that your har
bor once floated the great rafts of Lebanon
cedar from which the temples at Jerusalem
were builded, Solomon's oxen drawing the
lojjs through this very town on the
"way to Jerusalem, nothing can make
rue forget that this Joppa was the
1 birthplace of the sewing society that
Las blessed the poor of all succeeding ages
in all lands. The disasters to your town
-when Judas llnccabaius set it on fire, and
Napoleon had 500 prisoners massacred in
year neichborhood, cannot make me forget
that one ot the most magnificent charities of
the centuries was started in this seaport by
Dorcas, a woman -with her needle embroid
ering her same ineffaceably into the ben
eficence of the world, l'see her sitting in
yonder home. In the doorway, and around
about the building, and in the room where
she sits, are the pale laces of the poor. She
listens to their plaint, she pities their woe,
she makes garments for them, she adjusts
the manufactured articles to suit the bent
form of this invalid woman, and to the crip
ple that comes crawling on his hands and
She gives a coat to this one, she gives
Eandals to that one. With the gifts she
mingles prayers and Christian encourage
ment. Then she goes out to be greeted on
the street corners by those whom she has
blessed, and all through the street the cry
is heard: "Dorcas is coming!" The sick
look up gracefully in her tace as she puts
her hand on the burning brow, and thelost
and the abandoned start up with hope as
they hear her gentle voice, as though an
angel had addressed them; and as she goes
out the lane, eyes half put out with sin
think they see a halo of light about her
brow, and a trail ot dory in her path tray.
That night a half paid shipwright climbs
the hill and reaches home, and sees his
little boy well clad, and says: "Where did
these clothes come from?" And they tell
him, "Dorcas has been here." In another
place a woman is trimming a lamp; Dorcas
bought the oil. In another place, a tamily
"that had not been at table for many a week
are gathered now, for Dorcas has brought
But there is a sudden pause in that wom
an's ministry. They say: "Where is Dor
cas? "Why, we haven't seen her for many a
day. "Where is Dorcas? And one of these
poor people goes up and knocks at the door
and finds the mystery solved. All through
the haunts of wretchedness, the news comes,
"Dorcas is sice!" .No bulletin flashiug
from the palace gate, telling the stages of a
king's disease, is more anxiously awaited
for than the news from this sick benefac
tress. Alas! for Joppa! there is wailing,
wailing. That voice which has uttered so
'many cheerful words is liusjed; that hand
which has made so many garments for the
cold and still ;
the star which had poured'light intothemid
night of wretchedness is dimmed by the
blinding mists that go up from the river of
death. In every God forsaken place in this
town; wherever there is a sick child and no
balm; wherever there is hunger and no
bread; wherever there is guilt and no
commiseration; -wherever there is a broken
heart and no comfort, there are despairing
looks and streaming eyes, and frantic ges
ticulations as they cry: "Dorcas is
dead!" They send for the Apostle Peter,
who happened to be in the suburbs of this
place, stopping with a tanner by the name
of Simon. Peter urges his way through the
crowd around the door, and stands in the
presence of the dead. "What expostulation
and grief all about him! Here stand some
of the poor people, who show the garments
rhich this poor woman had made lor them.
Their grief cannot be appeased. The Apos
,tle Peter wants to perform a miracle. He
-will not do it amid the excited crowd, so he
kindly orders that the whole room be cleared.
The door is shut against the populace. The
apostle stands now -with the dead. Oh, it is
a serious moment, you know, when you are
alone with a lifeless body! The apostle gels
down on bis knees and prays, and then he
oomes to the lifeless form ot this one all
ready for the sepulcher, and in the strength
of Him -who is theresurrection he exclaimed:
"labitha, arise!" There is a stir in the
fountains of life; the heart flutters; the
nerves thrill; the cheek flushes; the eve
opeos; she sits up!
"We see in this subject Dorcas the disciple;
Dorcas the benetactress; Dorcas the
lamented; Dorcas the resurrected.
, GOOD, EEGAEDLESS OP TITLE.
If I had not seen that word disciple in my
text, I would have known this woman was
a Christian. Such music as that never came
from a heart which is not chorded and
strung by dit ine grace. Before I show you
"the "needlework of this woman, I want to
fchow you her reeenerated heart, the source
of a pure life and or all Christian charities.
X wish that the wives and mothers and
daughters and sisters of all the earth would
imitate Dorcas in her discipleship. Before
you cross the threshold of the hospital, be
fore you enter upon the temptations and
"trials of to-morrow, I charge you, in the
name of God, and by the turmoil and
tumult of the judgment day, oh,
women! that you attend to the first,
last and greatest duty of your life
the seeking for God and being at peace with
Him. "When the trumpet shall sound, there
-will be an uproar, and a -wreck of mountain
and continent, and no bnman arm can help
j-ou. Amid the rising of the dead, and
amid the boiling of yonder sea, and amid
the live, leaping thunders of the flying
heavens, calm and placid will be every
woman's heart who hath put her trust in
Christ; calm,notwithstandmg all the tumult,
as though the fire in the heavens were only
the gildings of an autnmnal sunset, as
though the peal of the trumpet were only
the harmony of an orchestra, as though the
'awful -voices of the sky were but a group of
friends bursting through a gateway at even
time with laughter, and shouting "Dorcas,
the disciple I" "Would God that every Mary
mnd every Martha would this day sit down
tot the feet of Jesus !
j JNEEDLE WOBK AND 2TOBILITX
Further, we see Dorcas the benefactress,
ilistory has told the story of the crown; the
plo poet has sung of the'sword: the nastoral
;xer, witn uis verses inn ot toe redolence of
lover tops, and a-rustle with the silk of the
orn. has sung the praises of the slow. I
iell you the nraisea of the needle. From
the fig leaf robe prepared in the garden of
i-aen to the last stitch taken on the garment
or the poor, the needle has wrought won
iers of kindness, generosity and benefac
tion. It adorned the girdle of the high
Jpriest; St fashioned the curtains in the
undent tabernacle; it cushioned the chariots
olJving Solomon; it provided the robes
of Queen Elizabeth; and iu high places
and in low places, by the fire of the
pioneer's back log and under the flash
of the chandelier, everywhere, it has
clothed nakedness, it has nreached the rns-
el, it lias overcome hosts of penury and
stitch!" The operatives Lave found a live
lihood by it, and through it the mansions of
the employer have been constructed. Amid
the greatest triumphs in all Rges aud Unas,
I set down the conquests of the needle. I
admit its crimes; I admit its cruelties. It
has had more martyrs than the fire; it has
punctured the eye; it has pierced the side;
it has struck weakness into the lungs; it has
sent madness into the brain; it has filled the
potter's field; it has pitched whole armies
of the suffering into crime and wretched
ness and woe. But now that I am talking
of Dorcas and her ministries to the poor, I
shall speak only of the charities of the
A TEUE, WOMANLT LEADER.
This woman was a representative of all
those women who make garments for the
destitute, who knit socks for the barefooted,
who prepare bandages for the lacerated, who
fix up boxes of clothing for missionaries,
who go into the asylums of the suffering and
destitute bearing that Gospel which is sight
for the blind, and hearing for the deaf, and
which makes the lame man lean like a hart,
and brings the dead man to life, immortal
health bounding in their pulses. "What a
contrast between the practical benevolence
of this woman and a great deal of the char
ity of this day! This woman did not spend
her time idly planning Low the poor of
your city of Joppa were to be relieved; she
took her needle and relieved them. She
was not like those persons who
sympathize with imaginary sorrows,
and go out in the street
and laugh at the boy who has upset his
basket of cold victuals, or like that charity
which makes a rousing speech on the benev
olent platform, and goes out to kick' the
beggar from the step, crying: "Hush your
miserable howling!" The sufferers of
the world want not so much theory
as practice; not so much tears as dol:
lars; not so much kind wishes as loaves
of bread;- not so mnch smiles as shoes;
not so much "God bless yousl" as jackets
and frocks. I will put one earnest Chris
tian man, hardworking, against five thou
sand mere theorists on the subject of charity.
There are a great many who have fine ideas
about church architecture who never in
their life helped to build a church. There
are men who can give you the history of
Buddhism and Mohammedanism, who never
sent a farthing for their evangelization.
There are women who talk beautifully about
the suffering of the world, who never had
the courage like Dorcas to take the needle
and assault it.
GOOD WOMEN IN AXL HISTOET.
I am glad that there is not a page of the
world's history wnich is not a record of
female benevolence. God says to all lands
and people, Come now and hear the widow's
mite rattle down into the poorbox. The
Princess ot Conti sold all her jewels that she
might help the famine stricken. Queen
Blanche, the wife of Louis VIII, of Trance,
Lhearing that there were some persons un
justly incarcerated in the prisons, went out
amidst the rabbit! and took a stick and
struck the door as a signal that they might
all strike it, and down went the prison door
and out came the prisoners. Queen Maud,
the wife of Henry I, went down amidst the
poor and washed their sores and administered
to them cordial. Mrs. Betson, at Mata
gorda, appeared on the battlefield while the
missiles of death were flying around, and
cared lor the wounded. Is there a man or
woman who has ever heard of the Civil"Warin
America who has not heard of the women
of the Sanitary and Christian Commissions,
or the fact that, before the smoke had gone
up from Gettysburg and South Mountain,
the women of the North met the women of
the South on the battlefield, forgetting all
their animosities while tbey bound up the
wounded, and closed the eyes of the slain?
Dorcas the benefactress.
I come now to speak of Dorcas the
lamented. "When death struck down that
good woman, oh, Low mucL sorrow there
was in this town of Joppa! I suppose there
were women here with larger fortunes,
women, herhaps, with handsomer faces; but
there was no grief at their departure like
this at the death of Dorcas.
IT WAS A GEEAT GBIEF.
There was not more turmoil and upturn
ing in the Mediterranean sea, dashing
against the wharves of this seaport, than
theie were surgings to and fro of grief be
cause Dorcas was dead. There are a great
many who go out of life and are nnmissed.
There may be a very large tuneral; there
may be a great many carriages and a plumed
hearse; there may be high-sounding eulogi
ums; the bell may toll at the cemetery gate;
there may be a very fine marble shaft reared
over the resting place; but the whole thing
may be a falsehood and a sham. The church
of God has lost nothing, the world has lost
nothing. It is only a nuisance abated; it is
only a grumbler ceasing to find fault; it is
only an idler stopped yawning; it is only a
dissipated fashionable-parted from his wine
cellar; while, on the other hand, no useful
Christian leaves this world without being
missed. The church of God cries out like
the prophet: "Howl, fir tree, for the cedar
has fallen." "Widowhood comes and shows
the garments which the departed had made.
Orphans are lifted up to look in the calm
face of the sleeping benefactress. Re
claimed vagrancy comes and kisses the cold
brow of her who charmed it away from sin,
and all through the streets of Joppa there
is mourning mourning because Dorcas is
When Josephine of France was carried
out to her grave there were a great many
men and women ot fiomp and pride and po
sition that went out after her; but I am most,
affected by the story of history that on that
day there were 10,000 of the poor of Prance
who followed her coffin, weeping and wail
ing until the air rang again, because, when
they lost Josephine, tbey lost their last
THE TEUEST LAMENTATIONS.
Oh, who would not rather have such ob
sequies than all the tears that were ever
poured in the lachrymals that have been ex
humed from ancient c'tieb. There may be
no mass for the dead; there may be no costly
sarcophagus; there may be no elaborate
mausoleum; but in the damp cellars of the
city, and through the lonely huts of the
mountain glen, there will be mourning,
mourning, because Dorcas is dead. "Blessed
are the dead who die in the Lord; they rest
from their labors, and their works do follow
I speak to you of Dorcas the resurrected.
The apostle came to where she was and said:
"Arise; and she sat up!" In what a short
compass the great writer put that; "She sat
up!" Oh, what a time there must have been
around this town, when the apostle brought
her out among her old friends! How the
tears of joy must have started! "What clap
ping of hands there must have been! "What
singing! "What laughter! Sound it all
through the lane! Shout it down that dark
alley! Let all Joppa hear itl Dorcas is
You and I have seen the same thing many
a time; not a dead body resuscitated, but
the deceased coming up again after death in
the good accomplished. If a man labors up
to 50 years of age, serving God, and then
dies, we are apt to think that his earthly,
work is done. No. His influence on earth
will continue till the world ceases. Ser
vices rendered for Christ never stop. A
Christian woman toils for the upbuilding of
a church through many anxieties, through
many self denials, with prayers and tears,
and then she dies. It is 15 years since she
went away. Now the spirit of God descends
upon 'that church; hundreds of souls stand
up and confess the faith of Christ.
Has that Christian woman, who went away
Washington, Tex June 26, 18SS.

AX DEtlOGISIS AND DEJULEES.
15 years ago, nothing to do. with these
things? I see the flowering out of Her noble
heart. I hear the echo of her footsteps in
all the songs over sins forgiven, in all the
prosperity of the church. The good that
seemed to be buried has come tip again.
Dorcas is resurrected.
After a while all these womanly friends
of Christ will put down their needle forever.
After making garments for others, some one
will make a garment for them; the last robe
we ever wear the Tobe for the grave. You
will have Leard the last cry of pain. You
will Lave witnessed the last orphanage. You
will have come in worn out from your last
round of mercy. I do not know where you
-will sleep, nor what your epitaph will be;
but there will be a lamp burning at that
tomb and an angel of God guarding it, and
through all the long night no rude foot will
disturb the dust Sleep on, sleep on! Soft
bed, pleasant shadows, undisturbed repose!
Asleep in Jesus! Blessed Bleep!
From which none over wake to weep.
Then one day there will be a sky rending,
and a whirl of wheels, and the flash of a
pageant; armies marching, chains clanking,
banners waving, thunders booming, and
that Christian woman will arise from the
dust, and she will be suddenly surrounded
surrounded by the wanderers of the street
whom she had reclaimed, surrounded by the
wounded souls to Whom she had adminis
tered! Daughter of God, so strangely sur
rounded, what means this? It means that
reward has come", that the victory is won,
that the crown is.rea.dy, that the banquet is
spread. Shout it through all the crumbling
earth. Sing it through all the Hying heav
ens. Dorcas is resurrected!
A CBIMEAN INCIDENT.
In 1855, when -some of the soldiers came
back from the Crimean war to London, the
Queen of England distributed among them
beautiful medals, called Crimean medals.
Galleries were erected for the two houses of
Parliament and the royal familv to sit in.
There was a great audience to witness the
distribution of the medals. A Colonel who '
had lost both feet in the battle of Inkennan
was pulled in on a wheel chair; others came
,in limping on their crutches. Then the
Queen of England arose before them in the
name of her Government, and nttered words
of commendation to the officers and men,
and distributed these medals, inscribed
with the four great battlefields. Alma, Bal
afclava, Inkerman and SebastopoL As the
Queen gave these to the wounded men and
the wounded officers, the bands of music
etruck up the national air, and the people
with streaming eyes joined in the song:
God save our graclons queen!
Long live our noble queen!
God save the queen!
And then tbey shouted "Huzza! huzza!"
Oh, it was a proud day for those returned
warriors! But a brighter, better and glad
der day will come when Christ shall gather
those who have toiled in His service, good
soldiers of Jesus Christ. He shall rise be
fore them, and in the presence of all the
glorified of heaven He will say: ""Well
done, good and faithful servant!" and then
He will distribute the medals of eternal vic
tory, not inscribed with works of righteous
ness which we have done, but with those
four great battlefields, dear to earth and
dear to heaven, Bethlehem! Nazareth! Geth

Catarrh to Consumption.
Catarrh in Its destructive force stands next to
and undoubtedly leads on to consumption. It
is, therefore, singular that those afflicted with
this fearful disease should not make it the ob
ject of their lives to rid themselves of it. De
ceptive remedies concocted by ignorant pre
tenders to medical knowledge have weakened
the confidence of the great majority of suffer
ers in all advertised remedies. Tbey become
resigned to a life of misery rather than torture
themselves with doubtful palliatives.
But this will never do. Catarrh must be met
at every stage and combated with all our might.
In many cases the disease has assumed danger
ous symptoms. The bones and cartilage of the
nose, the organs of hearing, of seeing and of
tasting so affected as to be useless, the uvnla so
elongated, the throat so Inflamed and irritated
as to produce a constant and distressing cough.

"My dear fellow, you have the symptoms of

MISS L MILLER,
A lady well known in Plttshurg and Alle
gheny, has been a great sufferer from a mul
titude of troubles. The catarrhal poison in
her blood affected her whole system. She
had a dropping of mucus from her head into
her throat, which was very tenacious and
hard to raise. She had no appetite, felt
bloated aud distressed after eating, aud she
would often vomit up her food. She had
much pain on the top of her head, was dizzy
and very nervous. She could get but little
sleep, and got up in the morning more tired
than when she went to bed. The disease
also extended to her kidneys, giving her
much pain across the small of her back. She
also suffered from diseases peculiar to women,
and had many other aches and pains too
numerous to mention. After becoming cured
bv the nhvsicians of the Catarrh and D vspeo-

Every young person
of imagination loves a true story
of Adventure, and under its
narration he is often greatly
benefited. A wise caution in
selecting such a story is repaid
by the enlarging and deepening
thoughts and feelings which may
come from its reading.
The 52 numbers of The
Yeuth's Companion for 1890 will
each contain a proper story of
Adventure. They are espe
cially intended to stimulate the
imaginative faculty. The writ
ers as well as the subjects have
been selected with great care.
The reader of these
stories will haye many new and
strange mental experiences. He
will tread the lonely depths of the ,
forest, and read the instincts of
wild beasts. He will know in
his heart the. bravery of the
sailor in the storm ; he will feel
in his veins the resolution of the
conqueror. He will, in turn, suf
fer the remorse of disobedience,
enjoy the serenity of trust, trem
ble at the approach of danger,
and learn the marvelous cool
ness of undaunted courage.
--- Realizing fully
the valuable lessons which.,suit
able tales of Adventure may con
vey, The Youth's Companion.has
such stories written expressly
to its orajer by leading writers.
Send for the full Prospectus for
1890. For $1.75 the paper will
be mailed to any address until
