SERMONS OF THE DAY.
RELIGIOUS TOPICS DISCUSSED BY
PROMINENT AMERICAN MINISTERS.
The Rev. George H. Hepworth's Sunday
Sermon In the New York Herald Is En
titled, "Things Not Worth While"—l>r.
Tslmage Preaches on Unfair Conduct.
TEXT: "Thou hast sinned against thy
soul."—Habakkuk. 11.. 10.
The obieot of religion is to make life
sweet and satisfactory. When a man has
done the best he could under the circum
stances be has done all that God requires
of him. Heaven i& not for those who be
lieve things, but for those who do things.
Christ was a working man in its largest and
most divine sense, while we are all working
men in a small sense. He worked for
others, and was therefore divine; we work
for ourselves, and are therefore pitifully
human. His religion teaches us to become
a part of the life of those who need our
help; our tendency is to take from others
for our own ease and comfort, and to give
as little as possible. Ho emphasizes the
value of the soul, gives it a dignity and a
grandeur, the gait and bearing of a king,
our philosophy of life minimizes spiritual
pleasures and magnifies what is sensuous.
I never tire of the New Testament, be
cause it is such a desperately sensible book
and because it flatly contradicts the ideas
whiah worldly society puts into my head.
It Is always new, therefore, and almost al
ways startling. If the soul is what He tells
me it Is, then I must have a large plan. If
1 am really little lower than the angels,
then I must cease to be childish, aud the
small cares of life must not"be allowed to
tease and fret me. In that case I should
look life in the face and say to my soul that
it must busy itself about great things and
keep in mind that petty things are not
worthy of attention.
For example, It is not worth while to be
impatient because what happens is not to
o.ur liking. Wo are apt to muko a hot re
ply when an ill-natured remark is made.
Somebody else's bad mood excites a bad
mood in us. We catch the disease instant
ly, and then there are two persons in a
bud mood instead of one. Passion is heat
ed to the exploding point, we give rein to
our tongue, and a pitched battle of words
takes place. Wo loosen the bonds of a
friendship, wo wound tho heart of affec
tion, for what wo say is a consuming fire.
If we had a perfect control of ourselves wo
should not be powder to anyone's torch. A
little patience, very difficult to attain, I
admit, would keep us from striking when
wo are struck. It Is noble to keep still,
and the rebuke of silence is like a keen
sword. It is not worth our while, not worth
the soul's while, to stop down to a lower
level because some one addresses us from
that level. Wo should maintain our dig
nity though others lose theirs.
Then, again, it is not becoming in a
princely soul to allow tho habit of fault
tlndingto get posesslon of it. It renders
one uncomfortable, it unlltsone for the en
joyments which cross our path, it dulls tho
edge ef happiness, it is like ontins a lomon
Instead of an orange. The man who finds
fault with others seldom has time to find
fault with himself, which is his chief duty.
Instead of being charitable he is
consorious. Not even tho Lord can
please him, and if ho ever gets to
heaven he will insist that things shnll be
arranged to suit his personal taste. Fault
finding is simply self-conceit in a subtle
disguise. Such a man hints that tho
universe is wrong, but that he can put it
right. It is not worth whlio to peer at the
defects of others and to ignore their vir
tues. It is better to look for good things,
because you ure suro to find them if you
look long enough, than to look for bad
things and then waste your time in
grumbling beenuso they are bad. If God
were dethroned such a man would try to
take His place; but since God reigns it
would be well for the fault Under to retire
to tho background and try to be thankful
for mercies received, rather than criticise
the Almighty for not giving him what he
thinks ho ought to have.
Once more, it is not worth your while to
look on the dark side of lifo, for thnt de
stroys your power of resistance and endur
ance. There is sometimes a hard side to
God's providence, but never a dark side.
He does undoubtedly ask us to do some
strange thinßS, and togo through some
strange experiences: but if He goes with
us wo are not only in good company but
aro sure to derive somo benefit from it all.
Strong characters aro wrought by tears,
and afflictions ure stepping stones to
henven If we view them from the right
standpoint and put thom to their proper
use. Life is not all gladness, but sadness
is the hot flro in whloh the Toledo blade is
forged. Wo may not always know why we
suffer, for no explanation has ever been
Kivon, but somehow or other the suffering
souls ure always the noblest, provided they
suffer,under the shadow of God's sym
pathy. To bo unconscious of His presence
makes life very heavy and laden, but to bo
conscious of it is like catching a glimpse of
the distant homo when the weary traveler
is ready to drop by the wayside.
Yes, a soul, an immortal soul, with
heaven and heavenly things all about, is a
magnificent mystery. It must live up to
its destiny, and put under its feet the fears
and doubts which are so intrusive and so
persistent. Thlak of yourself as God's
child, to whom no real harm can possibly
come, and the clouds will part and your
depression will be lightened. There aro
still stars overhead, and a blue sky. It
will be all right by and by. In the mean
time be patient, and, above all, keep your
faith bright and pure.
GEOBOE H. HEPWOBTB.
DR. TALMAGE'S SERMON.
An Impressive Discourse Entitled, "Meas
uretl by Your Own Yard Stick."
TEXT: "With what measure you mete, It
shall bo measured to you again." —Matt,
In the greatest sermon ever preached—
a sermon about fifteen minutes long, ac
cording to the ordinary rate of speech—a
sermon on the Mount of Olives, the
preacher, sitting while He spoke, accord
ing to the ancient mode of oratory, the
people were given to understand that the
same yard stick that they employed upon
others wouid be employed upon them
selves. Measure others by o harsh rule
nnd you will be measured by a harsh rule.
Measure others by a charitable rulo and
you will be measured by a charitable rule.
Give no mercy to others, and no mercy
will bo given to you. "With that measure
ye mete, It shall be measured to you again."
There is a great deal of unfairness'ln crit
icism in human conduct. It was to smite
that unfairness that Christ uttered the
words of the text, and my sermon will be a
'jj-echo of the divine sentiment. In estima
■fuig tho misbehavior of others, we must
■Rke into consideration the pressure of elr
ftumstances. It is never right to do wrong,
■but there are degrees of culpability. When
Vmen misbehave or commit somo atrocious
."wickedness we are dispose Indiscriminately
* to tumble them all over the bank of con
demnation. Suffer they ought and suiter
tbey must, but in a difference of degree.
Iu Great Britain and In the United States,
In every generation, there are tens of thou
sands of persons .who are fully developed
criminals and Incarcerated. I say In every
generation. Then I suppose there are tens
of thousands of persons who, not positive
ly becoming criminals, nevertheless hnvo a
criminal tendency. Aty one of all those
thousands, by the grace of God may become
Christian, and resist the ancestral influ
ence, and open a new chapter of behavior;
but the vast majority of them will not, and
It becomes all men, professional, unpro
fessional, ministers of religion, judges of
eourts,philanthropists nnd Christian work
ers, to recognize the fact that there are
these Atlantic and Paolflc surges of heredi
tary evil rolling on through the centuries
Again, I have to remark, that in our es
timation the misdoing of people who have
fallen from high respectability and useful,
ness we must take Into consideration th«
conjunction of circumstances. In nln«
oases out of ten a man who goes astraj
does not intend any positive wrong. H«
has trust funds. He risks a part of tuasa
funds in investment. He says: "Now. if I
should lose that Investment I have of my
own property five times as much, and if
this investment should go wrong, I could
easily make it up; I could five make
it up." With that wrong reasoning he
Soes on and makes the investment, and it
oes not turn out quite as well as he ex
pected, and he makes another investment,
and, strange to say, at the same time all
his other affairs get entangled, and all his
other resources fall, and his hands are tied.
Now he wants to extricate himself. He
goes a little further on in the wrong In
vestment. He takes a plunge further
ahead, for he wants to save his wife and
ohlldren; he wants to save his home; he
wants to save his membership in the ohurch.
He takes one more plungo and all is lost.
In the study of society I have come to
this conclusion, that the most of the people
want to bo good, but they do not exactly
know how to make It-out. They make
enough good resolutions to lift them into
angelhood. The vast majority of the peo
ple who fall are the victims of circum
stances. They are captured by ambuscade.
If tteir temptations should come out in a
regiment and light them In a fair field they
would go out in the strength and triumpr
of David and Goliath. But they do notse
the giants and they do not see the regi
ments. Temptation comes and says:
"Take those bitters, take this nervine,
take this aid to digestion, take this night
cap." The vast majority of men and
women who are destroyed by optam and
by rum first take them as medicines. In
making up your dish of criticism in regard
to them, tako from the caster and the cruet
of sweet oil and not the cruet of cayenne
Do you know how that physician, that
lawyer, that journalist, became the victim
of dissipation? Why, the physician was
kept up night by night on professional
duty. Life and death hovered In the bal
ance. His nervous system was exhausted.
There came a time of epidemics and whole
families were prostrated and his nervous
strength was gone. He was all worn out
in the service of the public. Now he must
brace himself up. Now he stimulates. The
life of his mother, the lifo of this child, the
life of this father, the life of this whole
family, must bo saved, and he stimulates,
and he does it again and again. You may
criticise his judgment, but remomber the
process. It was not a selfish purpose by
which he wont down. It was magnificent
generosity through which ho fell.
My friends, this text will come to ful
fillment in some cases in this world. The
huntsman In Farmsteen was shot by
some unknown person. Twenty years
later after the son of the huntsman was
in tho same forest, and he accidentally
shot a man, and the man in dying said:
"God is just: I shot your father just hero
twenty years ago." A bishop said to
Louis" XI. of France: "Make an iron
cage for all those who do not think as we
do—an iron cage in which the captive can
neither lie down nor stand straight up." It
was fashioned—tho awful instrument of
punishment. After a while tho bishop of
fended Louis XI., and for fourteen years
he was in that cage, and could neither lie
down nor stand up. It is a poor rule that
will not work both ways. "With what
measure ye mete, it shall be measured to
Oh, my friends, let us be resolved to scold

those who hnve gone astray? What head
way will you and 1 make In tho last great
judgment, when we must have mercy or
perish? The Bihlo says: "They shnli have

I see the scribes of heaven looking up in
to the face of such a man, saying, "What!
Sou plead fur mercy, you, who in nil your
fe never had any mercy on your fellows?
Don't you remember how hard you were In
your opinions of those who were astray?
Don't you remember when you ought to
have given a helping hand you employed a
hard heel? Mercy! You must mis-speak
yourself when you plead for merey here.
Mercy for others, but no mercy for you.
Look," say tho scribes of heaven, "look
at that inscription over the throne of judg
ment, the throne of God's judgment." See
it coming out letter by letter, word by
word, sentence by sentence, until your
startled vision reads it and your remorse
ful spirit appropriates it: "With what
measure ye mete, it shall bo measured to
you again. Depart, ye cursed!"
SOUTHERN COTTON MILLS.
Statistic* Showing the Kapld Growth of
the Industry in North Carolina.
Tlio first report of the Commissioner of
Labor Statistics, of North Carolina, devotes
much attention to the cotton Industry. The
number of cotton mills in operation in the
State in 1870 was thirty-three, equipped
with 618 looms and 39,897 spindles. Ten
years later there was a small increase in
the number of mills to forty-nine, but the
cupacity of many old ones had been In
creased, and there was an Increase of over
100 per cent, in the equipment, the looms
numbering 1790 and the spindles 93,385.
Five yeajrs later there was another Increase
of 100 per cent., in round numbers, tha
number of mills being eighty, with 4071
looms and 199,000 spindles. On January 1,
1893, there were 207 cotton mills, with
nearly 25,000 looms and 1,045,385 spindles
The number will soon be Increased. Ten
new spinning or weaving companies have
been formed nnd expect to be In operation
by the time the new cotton crop appears.
Nine additional mills are nearlng comple
tion, and ten hosiery and knitting mills are
LEITERS BORROWED $9,000,000.
Mow Prepared and Determined to Carry
Through Their Wheat Deal.
L. Z. Letter and his son, Joseph, the
Chicago grain speculators, have borrowed
$9,000,000, and are now prepared to carry
through their big wheat deal. They didn't
actually need the money just at present,
but thought It betterto make the loan when
the money market was easy.
Every bushel of oontraet wheat now at
Chicago will bo on Its way to Europe
withlu the next four weeks. Up to the
middle of March tbo railroads were loading
Leiter wheat out of only one system of
elevators—the Armour. The closing of ad
ditional shipping contracts with the east
bound roads tor 3,000,000 bushels started
loading at every elevator system in Chloago,
NOVEL TEST CASE.
Chinaman Arretted For Using Hl* Month
as a Sprinkler.
For years the Chinese laundrvmen of San
Francisco have sprinkled clothes for iron
ing by spraying the water from their
mouths. Last March a olty ordinance was
adopted, prohibiting this primitive and
disgusting method, and several Chinese
laundrymen were arrested for violation of
the decree. A test onse was made, and the
culprit tried to secure a writ of habeas
corpus on tho ground that the ordlnanoo
was unconstitutional because it was special
legislation. Judge Cook this week decided
that the law justifies such an ordinanoe, as
It Is designed to check the spread of dis
ease. He remanded the Chinese to jail, and
the case will be tried.
A Unique Agricultural Feat.
Superintendent J. W. Mills, of tha Po
mona (Cal.) Agricultural Experiment Sta
tion, has succeeded In a most unique and
interesting experiment—the grafting of n
morning glory on a sweet potato vine. As
a result both plants attained an unusually
large growth. The sweet potato vine pro
duced twenty-one pounds of potatoes.
A TEMPERANCE COLUMN.
THE DRINK EVIL MADE MANIFEST
ST" IN MANY WAYS.
Why He 1. a Nobody—Un.naw.rable Ar
gument Showing That the Eaaleat Wav
to Keep Sober I.to Take the Total Ab
.tinence Fledge—Woman'. Influence.
He tried hard to be somebody,
But be wouldn't give up bis gin toddy;
80, sinking his pride, be lived and be died
And went to his grave a poor noddy,—
A foolish, unfortunate noddy,
A hopeless, unlucky nobody.
"0 dear! what a fool," said the neighbors,
"To thus throw away all his labors, ;«*MS
To muddle bis head, and make bis nose red,
As If he'd been fencing with sabres,"
And all for the sake of gin toddy,
O foolish, unfortunate noddy!
"Who's that?" would the boys ory in chorus,
And laugh in a manner uproarious
In pure boyish fun, to see the sot run
And snatch his old hat from rude Boreas—
This foolish, unfortunate noddy,
/his hopeless, unlucky nobody.
*>oy, if you'd be a somebody,
,en never incline to gin toddy;
it keep a clear head, be kind and well bred,
nnd avoid the sad fate of this noddy,
This foolish, unfortuuate'noddy,
This hopeless, unlucky nobody.
—Mrs. M. A. Kidder.
Do you wish to know the easiest way to
be sober? It is to take the total abstinenoe
pledge, says the Western Chronicle. What
does a man do when he takes the pledge?
Just what the farmer does, who, seeing his
fence Is about high enough to keep the cat
tle out of the gruin, makes it just one rail
higher; for ho knows that there may be one
beast wilder than the rest who will leap
over an ordinary fence. Ho a prudent man,
seeing the ravages of the vice of intemper
ance among his friends, dreads some mo
ment of weakness during the passing of
the convivial glass, or during some depres
sion of spirits or foolish mirth. So he puts
all danger out of the question by the
pledge. For If there bo danger from an in
herited nppetito or from a convivial dispo
sition, or from prosperity or adversity,
there is no mistake about this; the man
who does not drink a single drop can not
drink too much.
But, agnin; what does a man do who takes
the pledge? Just what the kind mother
does who wants to induce her sick child to
take the bitter medicino—she tastes it her
self. The pledge Is taken by a man who
may not need it for his own sake, but who
loves another who does need it. It is taken
in order to give good example. It is not
only a preventive for one's self, but for
those who may be led by our Influence. It
is one great means that fathers and
| mothers use in order to savo their children
from tile demon of drunkenness. Oh! how
pleasing to God are those parents who
practice total abstinence by way of good
example! Oh! how blessed Is the home from
which intoxicating drink has been lian
i ished! How wise are those parents who
I thus teaoh their children that intoxicating
drink, though it may be used with inno-
I cenoe, must always be used with caution!
Children reared in such a home know well
enough how to avoid treating, frequenting
saloons and convivial habits of every sort.
Such purents, not only obey the apostle's
injunction, "Ba sober," but do the very best
possible thing to induce those whom they
love to obey it also.
There is a phase of tbo temperance re
form in which I have often thought out
good temperance women might do very
efficient work, writes Dr. J. O. Junkin,
i.e., in educating our physicians. I have
practiced medicino more than thirty-six
years, and know that next to the physician
she rules in the sick room, and sometimes
even setting him aside in making pertinent
and practical suggestions.
If our temperanco women would ap
proach the physician in a proper way (and
they oan) they would soon stop the closing
of the sick with these poisons, which in inv
practice (and it has boon a large one) I
have never derived any benefit to patients,
but often positive harm, and which I dis
carded as a medicine years before I quit
Physicians start many thousands annu
ally on tho way to a drunkard's grave by pre
scribing these stimulants as a medicine. 1
know that in their conventions they have
passed resolutions on this point, but there
needs to be more decided concert of action
in carrying thein out. Seems to me this
point should bo pressed more fulfv by tem
perance writers and speakers. If we could
got clear of these stimulants as a medicinal
remedy, we would knock from under the
liquor uion some of their main props, for
they say, "You can't get along without our
liquors as a medicine." Discarded as a
medicine, our druggists would not keep
them for tilling prescriptions and under
that pretense making their stores saloons,
as so many are now doing.
Mortality of Liquor Dealers.
Dr. John Tat ham has just presented a
report to the Registrar General of England
on the mortality of men engaged in dif
ferent occupations, the figures relating to
the years 1890-92 inclusive. The age, oc
cupation and registered cause of death of
every male person over fifteen years of
age who died during these three years,
have been taken from the death registers,
and the collective information thus ob
tained is given duly tabulated in a Blue
On the mortality of those engaged in the
liquor trade Dr. Tatham has this to say:
"The death rate of all classes directly con
cerned in that business still continues to be
enormous, and the figures amply corrob
orate this statement. The standard mor
tality figures for occupied males is 953.
That for brewers is 1427, and that for pub
licans 1948. Publicans, or saloon keopers,''
adds Dr. Tatham, "die seven times as fast
as do occupied males from alcoholism, six
and a half times as fast from diseases oi
the liver, and more than double as fast
from diseases of the urinary system, from
rheumatic fever, from diabetes, and from
suicide." Indeed tho death rate of pub
licans from every cause but accident is fear
fully in excess of the average. No other
occupation is so deadly as that of the pub
lican, whose very servants die twice us
rapidly as they would if they were en
gaged in any other occupation but that of
selling strong drink.
A Distiller Teaelies u I«sson.
A whisky distiller died recently in an ad
joining county who left an estate worth
t6,000,000, says the Pittsburg Catholic.
People who had cultivated whisky tastes
said his production could not bo excelled
in quality—and it was highly recommend
ed. But tho man who manufactured It
and built up this immonse fortune on Its
sale would not even taste it. He was a
total abstainer and preferred a clean bill
of health for himself. There is a lesson
This is the polite way of telliug how a
man in these days died from habits of
drunkenness. Only in the mildest terms
must one refer to an act of this kind, lest
he should offend the sensitiveness of some
dealer in the accursed drink, or some re
respectable upholder of the traffic; and
only in the gentlest manner possible mußt
ono speak of the terrible evils resulting
from alcoholic beverages, so as to avoid
giving offense to those who believe to li
censing their sale.

A New Vino Pect.
A new vine pest is reported from
the Bordeaux wine district, in France.
It is the Botrytis Cinerea, a kind of
fungns, known among the country
people as the gray rot, which in warm,
moist weather spreads with extraor
dinary rapidity. This fungus bores
through the skin of the grapes and
dries up the juice, especially dimin
ishing the percentage of tartar in it,
and operating upon it in other ways to
ruin the flavor of the wine.
