SERMONS OF THE DAY.
RELIGIOUS TOPICS DISCUSSED BY
PROMINENT AMERICAN MINISTERS.
The Eleventh or the New York Herald's
Competitive Sermons is on"The Sin
of Despising Others"—l»r. Talmage
Preaches on "Traps For tlie Unwary,"
"He lhatdespiseth his neighbor sinneth.'*
Prov. xiv., 21.
There is a great doal of sin in the world
whioh tho ordinary conscience neither
recognizes nor condemns. With most of
us the standard of right and wrong is
purely conventional. If we do not break
the letter of the Ten Commandments; if
we keep clear of nets which public opinion
forbids; if we maintain a character upon
which society sets no brand, then we feel
at peace within ourselves and make sure
that we are God's elect.
We do not see what subtle and far-reach
ing things good and evil are —how they in
terweave themselves into all our acts, our
words and motives, nnd secret thoughts
oven; nnd how they depend, not upon tho
fashion of tho hour or the place, but upon
eternal and unchangeable principles. An
enlightened and sensitive conscience would
see sin in a thousand things which pass
with the majority as indifferent, if not
actually praiseworthy. It is not in nice
points of religious obnervnnce that places
„our moral character above suspicion half
so much as in those weightier matters of
justice and mercy and truth which aro in
volved in all the business and intercourse
of dally life. Thousands who would trem
ble to participate in any of the so-called
amusements of society, and who are
as strict and ostentatious as the
Pharisees in regard to prayer
and other duties, nre yet living in such an
atmosphere of unchnrltableness and wrong
thnt they are actually further from tho
kingdom of heaven than the very publi
cans and harlots. In a terse, direct and
emphatic way a form of guilt is pointed
out by Solomon which we seldom think of,
yet which wc are all very prone to fall into,
and which is one of the peculiarly boset
tings sins of that large class of men who
are disposed to bo religious without being
godly. The chief characterlstio of these
peoplo is to trust in themselves that they
are righteous, and to treat others in a way
which unmistakably declares, "Stand aloof,
for we arc holier than you," and they aro
so far from thinking such spiritual haught
iness sinful that they regard it as an actual
proof of their divine sonship. Such con
duct never fails to insure moral resentment
and to elicit tho rebuke, "He that despis
eth his neighbor sinneth."
The parablo of the Good Samaritan sup
plies a most beautiful explanation of the
word "neighbor." It teaches thnt every
man with whom we come in contact or re
lation is to be regarded and treated as our
"neighbor." The fact that I know of a
man's existence, and thnt I can in any way
teach and influence him, isenough to bring
mo under responsibility in regard to him.
Tho broad Atlantic may roll between us;
whole continents and burning deserts and
deadly swamps may separate us: but if
thero is any channel of communication be
tween us—any electric current, so to speak,
by which sympathy may bo created and
love may act—that man is as truly my
neighbor as if we met in the same market
or lived in the same street.
Notice what it is to despise our neighbor.
To entertain mean and contemptuous
thoughts of our neighbor is obviously to
despiso him. We should always remember
that there is vastly more in common than
there is of difference between the highest
and more cultured and the lowest and most
ignorant. Frequently, however, we forget
■his, and from mere diversity of outward
circumstances we look upon each otiier
with feelings of haughty superiority and
contempt. As a consequence tho rich and
the great sometimes undervalue and insult
the poor and the lowly; and the poor and
tho lowly in return hate the rich and the
great, nnd ascribe all their importance
solely to their wealth and rank. Surely, in
both cases, this is despising their neighbor
forgetting their common humanity, their
common dignity and their common origin.
To treat your neighbor with indifference,
as if there were no ties binding you to
gether, and no symuathy due from one to
the other, is to despiso him. Tho affini
ties of human nnturo nre such that it is
treason to place ourselves in proud isola
tion from the race to which we naturally
belong, anil gaze upon the sufferings and
helplessness of our kind with stoical in
difference. Such conduct is not only rep
rehensible, it is actually sinful. It is sin
ful because it is a great wrong done to
humanity. It rouses within man bitter,
bad, resentful feelings, which sets class
against class. Its tendency is to destroy
self-respect, and let a man once lose that
and there is no telling what he may be
Again, to despiso one's neighbor is an
offence against social unity. The social
organism can only be held together by a
true and proper recognition of tho useful
ness and necessity of each individual to
the whole. Society is one body. Its mem
bers are manifold, but they nre all knit to
gether in tho closest bonds.
There is no such thing as real independ
ence. And hence for any man to despise
!ils neighbor is just as wrong nud foolish
as it would bo for the head to say to the
feet, "I havo no neod of you;" for his in
fluence, as far as it goes, operates to the
disorganization of society—to tho break
ing up of that unity nud sympathy upon
which the aeneral hapiuess "and well being
depend. Despising your neighbor is to
sin against your own soul. By such con
duct. the great forces ever operating for
the formation of your own character and
tho shaping of your own destiny are un
dervalued. We depend upon each other.
This offence Is also a sin against God.
Humanity is His child—tho outcast and
the sinful ns well as tho poor. If you des
pise his child, He says: "Inasmuch as ye
have done it unto one of the least of these,
ye have done it unto Me."

1 lonty of this luscious product was haniz
ng In tho woods of Bethaven during th«
'»« Saul and Jonathan. Their ■
•va» in pursuit of an enemy that bv rUiJ !
command must be exterminated i
-old iery were positively forbidden to
o eat until the work was done. If
beyed they W9r « accursed. Coming
through the woods they found a place
where the bees had been busy—a great
boney manufactory. Honey gathered In
the hollow of the trees until It had over
flowed upon the ground in great profusion
of sweetness. All the nrmy obeyed orders
and touched It not save Jonathan,and he not
knowing the military order about abstin
ence dipped tho end of a stick he had in
his hand into the candied liquid, and as
yellow and tempting it glowed on the end
of the stick he put it to his mouth and ate
the honey. Judgment fell upon him, and
but for special intervention he would have
been slaiu. In my text Jonathan announces
his awful mistake: "I did but ta9te a little
honey with the end of the rod thnt was in
my hand, nnd 10, I must die." Alas, what
multitudes of peoplo in all ages have been
damaged by forbidden honey, by which I
mean temptation, delicious and attractive,
but damaging and destructive.
Corrupt literature, fascinating but droad
ful, comes in this category. Where one
good, honest, healthful book is read now,
there is a hundred made up of rhetorical
trash consumed with avidity.
Corrupt literature is doing more to-day
for the disruption of domestic life than any
other cause. Elopements, marital in
trigues, sly correspondence, fictitious
names given at postoflice windows, clan
destine meetings in parks, and at ferry
gates, and in hotel parlors, and conjugal
perjuries are among tho ruinous results.
When a woman, young or old. gets her
head thoroughly stuffed with the modern
novel she is in appalling peril. There is a
wealth of good books coming forth from
our publishing houses that leave no excuse
for the choice of that which is debauching
to body, mind and soul. Goto some intel
ligent man or woman and nsk for a list of
books that will be strengthening to your
mental and moral condition. Life is so
short and vour time for improvement so
abbreviated that you cannot afford to All
up with husks, and cinders and debris.
Stimulating liquids also come into the
category of temptation delicious but death
ful. You say, "I cannot bear the taste o(
intoxicating liquor, and how any man can
like it is to me an amazement." Well,
then, it is no credit to you that you do not
take it. Do not brag about }rour total ab
stinence, because it is not from any princi
ple that you reject alcoholism, but for the
reason that you reject certain styles of
food—you simply u„a't like the taste of
them. But multitudes or people have a
natural fondness for nil kinds of intoxi
cants. They like it so much that it makes
them smack their lips to look at it. They
are dyspeptic and they like to aid diges
tion; or they are a inoyed by insomnia,
and they take it to produce sleep; or they
aro troubled, and they take it to make
them oblivious; or they feel happy, and
they must celebrate their hilarity. They
begin with mint julep sucked through two
straws in tho Long Branch piazza and end
in the ditch, taking from a jug a liquid
half kerosene nnd half whisky.
One would supposo that men would tako
warning from some of the ominous names
given to intoxicants, and stand off from
the devastating influence. You have
noticed, for instance, that some of tberes
taurunts are called "The Shades," typical
of the fact that it puts a man's reputation
in the shade, und his morals in the shade,
and his prosperity in the shade, and his
wife and children in the shade, and his im
mortal destiny in the shade. Now, 1 flud
on some of the liquor signs in all our cities
the words "Old Crow," mightily suggestive
of the carcass and the filthy raven that
swoops upon it. Men and women without
number slain of rum, but unlmried, anil
this evil is peckiug at their glazed eyes,
and peeking at their bloated cheek, and
pecking at their destroyed manhood and
womanhood, thrusting beak and claw into
tho mortal remains of what once was glori
ously alive, but now morally dead. "Old
Crow!" But alas! how many iakeno warn
ing. Remember Jonathan and tho forbid
den honey in tho woods at Bethaven.
Furthermore, the gamester's indulgence
must be putin the list of temptations de
licious but destructive. You who have
crossed the ocean many times have noticed
that always one of the best rooms has, from
morning until late at night, been given up
to gambling practices. I heard of men
who went on board with enough for an
European excursion who landed without
money to get their baggugo up to the hotel
or railroad station.
State Legislatures have again and again
sanctioned tho mighty evil by passing
1 aws in defense of race tracks, and many
young mon have lost all their wages at such
so-called "meetings." Every man who
voted for such infamous bills "has on his
hands and forehead the blood of these
Stock-gambling comes into tho snme cat
alogue. It must be very exhilarating togo
into the stock market and, depositing a
small sum of money, run the chanco of tak
ing out a fortune. Many men aro doing an
honest and safe business' in tho stock mar
ket, and you are an ignoramus if you do
not know that it is just as legitimate todenl
in stocks as it is to deal in coffee, or sugar,
or Hour. But nearly all tho outsiders who
go there on a financial excursion lose
all. The old spiders eat up tho unsus
pecting flies. 1 had a friend who put hit
hand on his liip-pocket nnd said in sub
stance: "I have there tho value of two
hundred and fifty thousand dollars." His
homo is to-day penniless. What was the
matter? Stock-gambling. Gambling is
gambling, whether is stocks or bread
stuffs, or dice, or raco horse betting.
Exhilaration at the start, but a raving
brain, and a shattered nervous system, and
a sacrificed property, and a destroyed soul
at the last. Young men, buy no lotterp
tickets, purchase no prize-packages, bet
on no base-hall games or yacht racing,
have no faith in luck,answer no mysterious
circulars, proposing great income forsmnll
investments, drive away tho buzzards that
hover around our hotels trying to entrap
strangers. Go out and make an honest
living. Have God on your side, and be a
candidate for heaven. Remember all the
paths of sin are banked with flowers nt the
start, and there are plenty of helpful hands
to fetch the gay charger to your door and
hold the stirrup while you mount. But
further on the horse plunges to the bit in
a slough inextricable.
Tho best honey is not like that whioh
Jonathan took on the end of tho rod and
brought to his lips, but that whioh God
puts on the bauqueting table of mercy, at
which wo are all invited to sit. When a
man may sit at tho King's banquet, why
will he go down the steps nnd contend for
the refuse and bones of a hound's kennel?
"Swoeter than honey and the honeycomb,"
says David, is tho truth of God. "With
honey out of the rock would I have satis,
fled thee," says God to the recreant. Here

Styllgh Gown For a Miss.
No two materials, according to May
Manton, harmonize more perfectly
than do cashmere and velvet. The
stylish gown in the double-column il
lustration is made of the soft wool
material in gray, trimmed with the
richer stuff in an exquisite shade of
tulip-red. The bodice, which is emi
nently girlish, is made over a litted
lining which includes the usual num
ber of pieces and seains, and closes at
the centre-front. The full portion of
the waist proper is arranged in gathers
at the edge of the yoke and again at
the waist line. The yoke and strips
of velvet are applied to the lining, and
are finished at all their edges of trim
ming which includes both gray and
red. The right edge of the front piece
is stitched to the lining, but the left
hooks invisibly into place. The sleeves
which are in coat shape fit snugly, but
are finished with slight puffs at the
shoulders which give the effect of ad
ditional breadth. Both neck and
wrists are finished with bands of vel
vet edged with the trimming which
serves as a frill.
The skirt is seven -gored and fits
smoothly across the front and over the
liiDs. the fulness beincr laid in plaits
to form the fan back. It is lined
throughout and interfaced with hair
cloth for a depth of five inches, and at
the extreme edges is a bias band of
the velvet stitched after the latest
mode. At the waist is worn a simple
straight belt of velvet made over a
foundation of tailor's canvas.
To make this waist for a miss of
fourteen years, will require one and
three-fourths yards of forty-four-inch
material, with one yard of velvet twenty
inches wide. To make the skirt will
require two and three fourths yards of
the same width material.
A Little Girl'* Costume of Yale-Blue
Yale-blue cashmere, banded with a
darker shade of velvet ribbon and
combined with a heavy cream lace
yoke over silk, made this attractive
and stylish gown, which is well suited
to afternoon wear. The blouse waist
is made over a fitted liuing and closes
invisibly at the centre-back, but the
outside portion has shoulder and un
der-arm seams only. The silk and
lace are faced onto the lining to yoke
depth, where they are met by the full
front and backs of cashmere, a strip of
the material edged with velvet being
placed over the joining. The fulness
at the lower portion is also collected
in gathers and is stitched to the
foundation in a manner to give the
youthful and slight blouse effect. The
sleeves are two-peamed and snug,
except for the puffs at the shoulders,
which are all that remain of the re
cent large sleeves. Bands of velvet
are placed at the wrists and again over
the puffs, meeting those that finish
the yoke at the arm's-eyes.
The skirt is simply full and straight,
and is unlined. At the lower edge is
a deep hem, above which are the two
bands of velvet ribbon. The yoke is
finished with a straight band of the
lace, edged with bands and at the

Muzzling Domestic Dnckt.
A baggageman on the Santa Fe, who
runs into Kansas City from out in the
western part of Kansas, had lost lots
of sleep. It is doubtful if he can ever
catch up with it. He leaves Hutchin
son at night aud reaches Kansas City
in the morning. Nearly every night
he brings in his car two or three coops
of live domestic ducks. During the
night, when he has no baggage to de
liver at small stations, it has been his
habit and privilege to he down on an
improvised couch and doze. With the
advent of the ducks the dozing stopped.
The almost constant quacking of the
ducks, who could not understand their
strange environment, would not per
mit of sleep.
For many nights, as he lay awake,
he planned relief. He thought of
strangling the ducks or chloroforming
them. But neither expedient seemed
good. One night a bright idea same
to him. After he had put it into ex
ecution the ducks were silent.
The next night he had two coope of
unusually vociferous ducks. As soon
as it came time for sleep he wrenched
a slat from one of the coops, reached
in and pulled out a duck. From his
pooket he took a small rubber band,
which he slipped over the duck's bill
just back of the nostrils. The duck
tried to qnack, but the rubber band,
while it stretched a little, would not
permit the duck to open its bill far
enough to use its tongue. Only a
murmur came from it. One by one
the ducks were muzzled, and the bag
gageman rested comfortably.
The commission men were surprised
next morning when they received a
lot of ducks with rubber bands around
their bills, and when the bands were
removed the shouts of protest from the
ducks were deafening.—Kansas City
A Universal Word.
One of the first words that a baby
says is mamma or mother, and it is
not strange, therefore, to find it one
of the first and simpliest words in every
language. There is no word easier for
a child to say than "ma" unless it be
"pa." In Hebrew aud Arabic mother
is "em" and "am;" it is "mam" in
Welsh and "modor" in Anglo-Saxon.
In other languages it is slightly differ
ent, but near enough like our own
word "mother" to make it an almost
universal word, so that a child crying
in any language could be understood
in almost any other language. Here
are a few of the names:
Madr 'n Persinn. Moder in Swedish.
Matr In Sanscrit. Moder in Danish.
Meter in Greek. Moeder in Dutch.
Mater in Latin. Mutter In German.
Mndre in Italian. Mater in Russian.
Mere in French. Mathair in Celtic.
