DR. TALMAGE'S SERMON.
SUNDAY'S DISCOURSE BY THE NOTED
Martyrdom of Stephen the Theme
For an Able Sermon Glimpses of
Heaven Through the Eyes ot the
Great Preacher The Eternal Sleep.
TEXT: "Behold I see the heavens
opened," etc.— Acts vli., 56-60.
Stephen had been preaching a rousing
sermon, and the people could not stand it.
They resolved to do as men sometimes
would like to do In this day, if they dared,
with some plain preacher of righteousness
—kill him. The only way to silence this
man war to knook the breath out of him.
So they rushed Stephen out of the gates of
the city, and with curse and whoop and
bellow they brought him to the cliff, as was
the custom when they wanted to take away
life by stoning. Having brought him to
the edge of the cliff, they pushed him off.
After he had fallen they came and looked
down, and seeing that he was not yet dead
they began to drop stones upon him, stone
after stone. Amid this horrible rain of
missiles Stephon clumbers up on his knees
and folds his bands, while the blood drips
from his temples to his cheeks, from his
cheeks to his garments, from his garments
to the ground, and then, looking up, he
makes two prayers—one for himself and
one for his murderers. "Lord Jesus, re
ceive my spirit;" that was for himself.
"Lord, lay not this sin to their charge;"
that was for his assailants. Then from pain
and loss of blood he swooned away and fell
I want to show you to-day five pictures-
Stephen gazing into heaven, Stephen look
ing at Christ, Stephen stoned. Stephen in
his dying prayer and Stephen asleep.
First look at Stephen gazing into heaven.
Before you take a leap you want to know
where you are going to land. Before you
climb a ladder you want to know to what
point the ladder reaches. And it was right
that Stephen, within a fow moments of heav
en, should be gazingjinto it. We would all do
well to be foundin th-same posture. There
is enough in heaven to keep us gazing. A
man of large wealth may have statuary in
the ball and paintings in the sitting room
and works of art in all parts of the house,
but he has the chief pictures in the art gal
lery, and there hour after hour you walk
with catalogue and glass and ever increas
ing admiration. Well heaven is the gallery
where God lias gathered the chief treas
ures of his realm. The whole universe is
his palace. In this lower room where we
fctop there are many adornments, tessella
ted floor of amethyst, and on the winding
eloud stairs are stretched out canvases on
which commingle azure and purple and
saffron and gold. But heaven is tho gallerv
in which the chief glories aro gathered".
There are tho brightest robes. There are
the richest crowns. There are the highest
exhilarations. John says of it, "Thekings
of the earth shall bring their honor and
glory into if." And I see the procession
forming, and in the line come all empires,
and the stars spring up into an arch for the
hosts to march under. The hosts keep
step to the sound of earthquake and the
pitch of avalanche from the mountains,
and the flag they bear Is the flame of a con
suming world, and all heaven turns out
with harps and trumpets and myriad voiced
acclamation of angelic dominion to wel
come them in, and so the kings of tho earth
bring their honor and gl->ry into it. Do
you wonder that good people often stand,
like Stephen, looking into heaven? We
have many friends there.
There is not a man in this house to
day so isolated in life but there is some one
in neavon with whom lieonce shook hands.
As a man gets older the number of his
celestial acquaintances very rapidly mul
tiplies. We have not had one glimpse of
them since the night we kissed them good
bv, and tiiey went away, but still we stand
gazing at heaven. And when some of our
friends go across the sea, we stand on the
dock or on the steam tug and watch them,
and after awhile the hulk of the vessel
disappears, and then there is only a patch
of sail on the sky, and soon that is gone,
and they are all out of sight, and yet we
Btand looking in the same direction, so
when our frionds go way from us into tho
future world wo keep looking down
through the narrows, and gnzing and gaz
ing. as though we expected that they
would come out nnd stand on some cloud
and give us ono glimpse of their blissful
and transfigured faces.
Pass on now and see Stephen looking
upon Christ. My text says he saw the Son
ol' Man at the right hand of God. Just how
Christ looked In this world, just how He
looks in heaven, wo cannot say. A writer
in the time of Christ says, describing the
Saviour's personal appearance, that He
had blue eyes and light complexion, nnd a
very graceful structure, but I suppose it
was all guesswork. The painters of the
different ages havo tried to imagine the
features of Christ and put them upon can
vas, but we will have to wait until ;witli
our own eyes we see Him and with our own
ears we can hear Him. And yet thero is a
way of seeing and hearing ilim now. I
have to tell you that unless you see and
hear Christ on earth you will never see and
hear Him in heaven. Look! There He is!
Behold the Lamb of God! Can you not see
Him? Then pray to God to takethe scales
OIT your eyes. Look that way—try to look
that way. His voice comes down to you
this day—eomes down to the blindest, to
the deafest soul, fjiying, "Look unto Me,
all ye ends of the earth, and be ye saved,
for I am God, and there is none else.'''
Proclamation of universal emancipation
for all slaves! Proclamation of universal
amnesty for all rebels! Belshazzar gath
ered the Babylonish nobles to his table;
George I. entertained tho lords of England
at a banquet; Napoleon 111. welcomed the
Czur of Russia and the Sultan of Turkey to
his feast; the Emperor of Germauy was
glad to have our minister, George Ban
croft, sit down with him at his table, but
tell me, ye who know most of the world's
history, what other king over asked the
abandoned and the forlorn and the wretch
ed nnd outcast to come and sit beside him?
Oh, wonderful invitation! You can take
it to-day aud stand at the head of tho
darkest alley in any city nnd say: "Come!
Clothes for your rags, salve for your sores,
a throne for your eternal reigning." A
Christ that talks like that and acts like
that and pardons like that—do you wonder
that Stephen stood looking at Him? I
hope to spend eternity doing the same
thing. I must see Him.
I pass on now and look at Stephen
Stoned. The world has always wanted to
get rid of good men. Their very life is an
assault upon wickedness. Out with
Stephen through the gates of the city.
Down with him over tho precipices. Let
every man come up and drop n stone upon
his head. But these men did not so much
kill Stephen as they killed themselves.
Every stone rebounded upon thom. While
these murderers were transfixed by the
scorrt of all good men, Stephon lives in the
admiration of all Christendom. Stephen
stoned, but Stephen alive. So all good
men must bo pelted. All who will live
godly in Jesus Christ must suffer persecu
tion. 11 >s no eulogy of a man to say that
everybody likes him. show me anyone
who Is doing nil his duty to state or church,
and I will show you men who utterly
If all men speak well of you, it is because
you are either a laggard or a dolt. If a
steamer makes rapid progress through tho
waves, the water will boil and foam all
around it. Bravo scldiors of Jesus Christ
will heur the carbines click. When I see a
man with voice and money and influence
all on the right side, and some caricature
him, nnd some sneer at lilm. nnd some de
nounce him, and men who pretend to be
actuated by right motives conspire to crip
ple him, to cast him out, to destrov him I
hay, "Stephen stoned."
Pass on now and see Stephen In hlsdvlno'
prayer. His drat thought was not how
the stones hurt his head nor what would I
become of bin body. His first thought wiU
about his spirit. "Lord Jesus, receive my
spirit." The murderer standing on the
trap door, the black cap being drawn over
his head before the execution, may grlmacs
about the future, but you and t have no
shame in confessing some anxiety about
where we are going to come out. You are
not all body. There is within you a soul.
I see it gleam from your eyes, and I see it
irradiating your oountenance. Sometimes
I am abashed before an audience, not be
cause I come under their physical eyesight,
but beoauso I realize the truth that I otand
before so many Immortal spirits. The
probability is that your body will at last

ing fir. But this spirit about whioh
Stephen prayed— what direction will that
take? What guide will escort It? What
gate will open to receive It? What cloud
will be cleft for its pathway? After it has
got beyond the light of our sun will there
be torches lighted for it the rest of the
way? Will the soul have to travel through
long deserts before it reaches the good
land? If we should lose our pathway, will
there be a castle at whose gate wo may
ask the way to the city? Oh, this myste
rious spirit within us! It has two wings,
but it is in a cage now. It i.H locked fast to
keep it. but let the door of this cage open
the least and that soul is oIT. Eagle's wing
could not catch it. Tho lightnings are
not swift enough to take up with it. When
tho soul leaves tho body, it takes fifty
worlds at a bound. And have Ino anxiety
about it? Have you no nuxiety about it?
I do not care what you do with my body
when my soul is gone, or whether you
believe in cremation or inhumation. I
shall sloop just as well in a wrapping of
sackcloth as in satin lined with eagle's
down. But my soul -before this day pusses
I will find out wliero it will land. Thank
God for the intimation of my text, that
when we die Jesus takes us. That answers
all questions for me. What though there
were massive liars between here and the
city of light, Jesus could remove them.
Wiiat though there were great Saharas of
darkness, Jesus could illume them. What
though I get weary on the way, Christ
could lift me on His omnipotent shoulder.
What though there were ehasms to cross.
His hund could transport me. Then let
Stephen's prayer be my dying litany,
"Lord Jesus, receivo my spirit."
Wa may be too feeble to employ either
of these familiar forms, but this prayer of
Stephen is so short, is so concise, is so earn
est, is so comprehensive, wo surely will be
able to sav that —"Lord Jesus, receivo my
spirit." Oh, if that prayer is answered,
how sweet it will bo to die! This world is
clever enough to us. Perhaps it has
treated us a great deal bettor than wo de
serve to bo treated, but if onthe dying pil
low there should break tho light of tliat
better world we shall have no more regret
about leaving a small, dark, damp house
for one large, beautiful and capacious.
That dying minister in Philadelphia, somo
years ago, beautifully depleted it when in
the last moment he threw up his hands
and cried out, "I move Into the light."
I'ass on now, and I will show you one
more picture, and that is Stephen asleep.
With a pathos and simplicity peculiar to
the Scriptures the text says of Stephen,
"He fell asleep." "Oh," you »'»y, "what a
place that was to sleep! A hard roek under
him, stones falling down upon him. the
blood streaming, the mob howling. What
a place it was to sleep!" And yet my text
takes that symbol of slumber to describe
his departure, so sweet was it, so con
tented was it, so peaceful was it. Stephen
had lived a very laborious life. His chief
work had been to care for tho poor. How
many loaves of bread he distributed, how
many bare feet ho had sandaled, how many
cots of sickness and distress he blessed
with ministries of kindness and love, I do
not know, but from the way he lived, and
the way ho preached, and the way he died
I know bo was a laborious Christian. But
that is all over now. He has pressed the
cup to tho last faiuting lip. He has taken
the last insult from Ills enemies. The
last stone to whose crushing weight he Is
susceptible has been hurled. Stephon is
dead. The disciples come. They take lilui
up. They wash away the blood from the
wounds. They straighten out the bruised
limbs. They brush back the tangled hair
from the brow, and then they pass around
to look upon the calm countenance of him
who had lived for the poor and died for
Stephen asleep! I saw such a one. Ho
fought all his days against poverty and
against abuse. Tliey traduced his name.
Tliey rattled at the doorknob while he was
dying with duns for debts he could not pay,
vet the peace of Qod brooded over his pil
low, and while the world faded heaven
dawned, and the deepening twilight of
earth's night was only the opening twilight
of heaven's morn. Not a sigh, not a tear;
not a straggle. Hush! Stephen asleep!
I have not tho faculty to tell tho weather.
I can never tell by tho setting sun whether
there will be a drought or not. I cannot
toll by the blowing of the wind whether
it will be fair weather or foul on the mor
row. But I can prophesy, and I will
prophesy, what weather it will bo when you,
the Christina, come to die. You may have
it very rough now. It may be this week one
annoynnce, the next another annoyance.
It may be this year one bereavement, tho
next another bereavement. Before this
year has passed you may have to bog for
bread or ask for a scuttle of coal or a pair
of shoes, but at tho last Christ will come
in and darknoss will go out, and though
there may be no hand to close your eyes,
and no breast on which to rest your dying
head, and no candle to lift the night, tho
odors of God's hanging garden will rogalo
your soul, and at ycur bedside will halt
the chariots of the King. No more rents
to pay, no more agony because flour has
gone up, no more s'trugglo with "the
world, the flesh and tho devil," but peace
—long, deep, everlasting peace. Stephen

CREAT COAL PRODUCTION.
All Ilecords Were ltroken, llut the Price
Per Ton Decreased.
The total output of coal in the United
Stntes in 1897 amounted approximately to
193,250,000 short tons, with an aggregato
vaiue of $193,100,000, a fraction less than
$1 per ton.
Compared with 189G, this shows an in
crease in tonnage of 0,270,000 ton 3, or
about 3.3 per ceut. The Increase in the
value of tho product was only $1,709,000,
little less thau nine-tenths of one per cent.
The amount of coal produced in 1897 was
the largest on record. The average value
per ton was the lowest ever known, con
tinuing the declining tendency whioh has
been shown without any reaction for the
last six years.

A liad Tenant.
An owner of real estate who rents Vils
property is very desirous of securing good
tenants. A bad tenant does not pay his
rent, is not careful of the property, de
stroys the house, breaks the windows, tears
the paper from the walls if ho feels so in
clined, and in this respect does not do as
he would be done by. He Is not as careful
with other people's property as he would
be with his own. Ho is an expensive ten
ant, making repairs necessary for the next
tenant who shall occupy the premises after
he has been removed, or been ejected.
He may be a bad tenant in other ways;
noisy, quarrelsome with his neighbors, who
may declare him a nuisance.
You may ilnd this to be true when you are
grown and own property.
But, every one is a property owner in one
way; you boys and girls own wonderful
houses, nnd I wish to warn you against n
certain bad tenant who would like to gain
an entrance. This teuant is a mischief
maker and always causes trouble when it
is put between the lips and allowed to be
come a tenant of the house in which wo
live. You can readily guess that the
enemy I have in mind is alcohol. The
houie in which we live is a most wonderful
building, having many rooms nnd much
delicate furniture. We should giv-s it the
best of care, in return for which It will give
us happiness; if we neglect It and allow it
to get out of repnir. it will give us pain.
As It is not food, it cannot build up the
body, nor help It to grow.
Aleohol has its proper uses, but they lire
outside of the human body. Like a bad
tenant, it destrovs the rooms, hurts the
delicate lining of the stomach, affects the
sense of sight and tasto; a man cannot
walk, feel or talk as he would If not under
its influence. Once alcohol lias gained an
entrance into the house and bo.-omo our
master it is very difficult to get rid of him.
Take my advice and never allow him to

And say "You can't come in!"
The Man Past Forty <nnd Hi* Cocktail.
I think, writes IJr. Walker, in the Medi
cal ltecord, that the greatest hazards to a
man's character arellkety to come after he
has passed forty-five years of age. He has
become more lenient in his judgment ol
others, and Is likely to be more indulgent
to himself. To speak of things wholly
physical, he has then the temptation to
both stimulants aild narcotics (or hypno
tics) in the highest degree. And "those
temptations come to him when ho is acting
chiefly as his own physician. If a young
fellow becomes a drunkard before" he is
thirty you can usually Ilnd for him the
plea of heredity. But there is many a man
who has passed thirty years and forty
safely whoin the next decade succumbs to
alcohol because he needs a braco to help
him transact the business which the close
work of previous years has brought to him.
He takes to alcohol not in the convivial
way but to help him over a hard place,
and he takes it in just the worst manner,
without accompanying food and when
food would likely be distasteful or even
harmful by nervous preoccupation. The
afternoon drink to tide him over n weary
day joins to itself earlier potions when
business presses and the morning cocktail
before it has begun. And all this is due to
the overwork given to the man whose es
tablished character has brought him to the
front. If a man passes in safety the time
when strength declines without "his realiz
ing the fact and reaches the time when he
must acknowledge it.he is all right. If it
bo not alcohol alone that is used it is alco
hol with a subtle stimulant more deadly, a
coca or a kola, which obscures the im
mediate effect of the medium.
Where la the Place For the Saloon?
If to the church and the school the rum
sliop Is a nuisance, as everybody agrees,
pray what is the rumshop to business and
society? If the intellectual and religious
life can't stand the rum traffic, the bus!
ness life certainly can not. If childhood iu
the intellect at school and maturity in the
heart at church are in peril in the vicinity
of the rumshop, by how much more shail
wo who are poor mlserablo sinners be im
periled by the same influence? If we of the
shop, the field, and the office are not as in
nocent as babes, certainly wo are not as
strong as the saints. Thnt the grogshop
should be outlawed, is confessed in certain
areas by all classes. If the grogshop
should be orderedoutof your territory to
protect it, why tot also out of other folks'
territory? If the strong are not as strong
as they wish they were, whnt will become
