SUNDAY'S DISCOURSE BY THE NOTED
The Subject, "Alleviations of War," Most
Pertinent to t?»e Kxcitlnff Times
Through Which We Xre Now Passing—
Cheer For Those Whose Hearts Are Sad
TEXT: "Though war should rise against
me, in tbls will I be confident."—Psalms
The ring of battle-axes and the elasli of
shields, aud the tramp of armies are henrd
all up and down the Old Testament; and
vou find godly soldiers like Moses, and
Joshua, and Caleb, and Gideon, and
scoundrelly soldiers like Sennacherib, and
Sbalmaneser, and Nebuchadnezzar. The
High Priest woubl stand at the head of the
army and say: "Hear, 0 Israel, ye ap
proach this dav unto battle against your
enemies, let not your hearts faiut; fear not,
and do not tremble, neither be ye terrified
because of them!" aud then the officers
would give command to the troops, say
ing: "What man Is there that hath built a
new house and hath not dedicated It? Let
him go and return to his house, lest ho die
in the battle and another man dedicate it.
And what niau Is he that hath planted a
vineyard and hath not eaten of it? Let him
also go and return unto his house, lest he
die in the battle and another man eat of It.
And what man is there thut hath betrothed
a wife and hath not taken her? Let him
go nnd return unto his house, lest he die In
battle and auother mau take her.'' Great
armies marched and fought. In the time
of Moses and Joshua all the raon were sol
diers. When Israel came out o( Egypt
there were tiOO.OOO lighting men. Abijah
commanded 400,000. Jeroboam commanded
800,000 men, of whom 500,000 were slain in
one battle. Some of these wars God ap
proved. for they were for the rescue of op
pressed nations, aud some of them He
denounced, but in all cases it was a judg
ment upon both victors and vanquished.
David knew just what war was when he
wrote in the text, "Though war should rise
against me, in this will I be confident."
David is here encouraging himself in
stormy times, and before approaching bat
tles administers to himself the consolatory.
So to-day my theme Is the "Alleviations of
War." War is organized atrocity. It is
the science of.assassination. It is the con
vocation of all horrors. It is butchery
wholesale. It Is murder glorified. It Is
death on a throne of human skeletons. It
is the cofiln in ascendancy. It is diabolism
at a game of skulls. Aud the time is coining
when war will be an impossibility. How
far in the future I cannot say, but there
will be a museum of curiosities in which a
father and sou will one day be walkiug,
and the son will sav, 'What is that sharp,
curved instrument?" and the father will
reply, "That is a sword." And the son
will say, "What are those round pieces of
iron?" and the father will reply, "Those are
bullets and cannon bulls aud bombshells.
Those are the ttyugs with which in the
Dark Ages peopleTdlled each other." Yet
the father will have hard work to make the
SOD believe that such things were ever
used for the destruction of human life.
But that time has not yet arrived, aud
having on other occasions spoken to you
of the •'Aggravations of War," now that
war is actually here it is time to speak of
First, I find an alleviation in the fact that
It has consolidated the North and South
after long-continued strained relations. It
Js thirty-three years since our Civil War
closed, and the violences are all gone aud
the severities have been hushed. But ever
and anon. In oration, in sermon. In news
paper editorial, in magazine article, on
political stump, and In Congressional hall,
the old seetional difference nas lifted its
head; and for the first time within my mem
ory, or the memory of any one who hears
or reads these words, the North nnd the
South are one. It was not a four years'
war, but n fifty years' war; war of tougue,
war of pen, war of printing press. But by
a marvelous providence, the family that
led in opposition to our Government thirty
years ago, is represented at the front in
this present war. Nothing else could have
done the work of unification so suddenly
or so completely as this conflict. At Tampa,
ut Chattanooga, at lUchmond. and In many
other places the regiments are forming, aud
it will be side by side, Massachusetts and
Alabama, New York aud Georgia. Illinois
aud Louisiana, Maine and South Carolina.
Northern and Southern men will together
tinllmber the guns aud rush upon the forti
fication aud charge upon the enemy and
shout the triumph. The voices of military
officers who were under Sidney Johtisou
and Joseph Hooker will give the command
on the same side. The old sectional
grudges forever dead. The name of Grant
on the Northern side and of Lee on the
Southern side will be exchanged for the
names of Grant aud Lee on the same side.
The veterans iu Northern aud Southern
homes and asylums are stretching their
rheumatic limbs to see whether they can
again keep step in a march, aud are testing
their eyesight to find whether they can
again look along the gun-barrel to success
fully take aim aud fire. The old war cry
of"On to Richmond!" and"On to Wash
ington!" has become the war cry of"On
to Havana!" "Onto Porto liico!" "Onto
the Philippine Islands!" The two old rusty
swords that in other days clashed at Mur
freesboro and South Mountain aud Atlanta,
are now lifted to strike down Hispanic
Another alleviation of the war is the fact
that it is the most unselfish war of the
ages. While the commercial rights of our
wronged citizens will be vindicated, that
is not the chief Idea of this war. It is the
rescue of hundreds of thousands of people
from starvation and multiform maltreat
ment. A friend who went out under the
flag of the Ked Cross two years ago to as
suage suffering in Armenia, and who has
been on the same mission, under the same
| Hag, in Cuba, says that the sufferings in
Armenia were a comedy and a farce com
pared with the greater sufferings or Cuba.
At least two hundred thousand graves are
calling to us to come on and remember by
what process their occupants died. It is the
twentieth century crying out to the nlne
i teenth: "Do you mean to pass down to us
the curse with which you have been blasted?
Or will you let me begin under new aus
pices ami turn the Island el desolation into
an island Edenic?"
It is a war inspired by mercy, which is an
attribute in man imitative of the same at
tribute of God. In no other age of the
world could such a war have been waged.
The gospel of kindness needed to be recog
nized throughout Christendom in order lo
make such a war possible. The chief rea
son why most of the European nations are
not now banded together avainst us is be
cause they dare not take the part of that
behemoth of cruelty, the Spanish Govern
ment, against the crusade of mercy which
our nation has started. Had it been on our
part a war of conquest, a war of annexa
tion, a war of aggrandizement,there would
have been by this time enough flying
squadrons coming to this couutry across
the Atlantic to throw into panic every city
on our American seaboard.
The wars oT the Crusaders were onlv to
regain an empty sepulchre; the Napoleonic
wars, with their six million slaughtered
men, were projected and carried out to ap
pease the ambition of one man; of thetwen
t.y-flve million slain in Jewish wars and of
the sixty million slain in the wars under
Julius Ciesar; of the one hundred and eighty
million slain in wars with Turks and Sara
cens; of the fifty million slain In wars with
Xerxes: of the twenty million slain in wars
of, Justinian; and the thirty-two million
slHln In the wars of Genghis Kahu, not one
man was sacrificed for mercy; but In till.-'

Another nrmviation is that the war opens
with a great victory for the United States,
in the most jubilant manner let the victory
of our navy be celebrated. With the story
of the destroyed battleship fresh in the
minds of the world it would require no or
iinary courage to sail Into the harbor of
Manila and attack the Spanish shipping,
rbat harbor, crowded with sunken wea
ponry of denth, to enter it was running a
ri9k enough to make all nations shiver.
But Manila is ours, and the blow has
shaken to the foundation the palaces of
Madrid, and for policy's sake the doubtful
lations are on our side. For Commodore
Dewey and all who followed him let the
whole nation utter Its most resounding
huzza; and more than that, let us thank
he Lord of hosts for his guiding and pro
tected power. "Praise ye the Lord! Let
sverythlng that hath breatu praise the
Another alleviation is the fact that in
:his war the might is on the side of the
right. Again and again have liberty and
ustice and suffering humanity had the
odds against them. It was so when Ben
lildad'sj Syrian hosts, .who. were in the
wrong, nt Aphek, came upon the small
regiments of Isrnel, who were in the right,
the Bible putting it in one of those graphic
sentences for which the book is remark
able—"The children of Israel pitched be
fore them like two little flocks of kids, but
:tie Syrians filled the whole country." It
was so in the awful defeat of the Lord's
people at Gllboa and Megiddo. It was so
recently when gallant and glorious Greece
was in conflict with gigantic Mohumme
lauism, and the navies of Europe hovering
ibout the Bosphorus were in practical
iirotection of the Turkish government,
fresh from the slaughter of one hundred
thousand Armenians. It was so when, in
177(i, the thirteen colonies, with little war
shipping and a few undrliled and poorly
:lnd soldiers, were brought into a contest
with the mightiest navy_ of all the earth
ind an army that commanded the admira
tion of nations. It was so when Hungary
went under. It has been so during all the
struggles heretofore for Cuban indepen
lenee. But now it is our powerful navy
with enough guns to send the opposing
fleet as completely under as when the lied
Sea submerged Pharaoh's armv.
Another nlieviation is the fact that wo
iiuve a God togo to iu behalf of all those
jf our countrymen who may be in especial
sxposure at the front, for we must admit
;lih perils. It is no trifling thing for 100,-
}OO young men to be put outside of home
restraints and sometimes into evil com
panionship. Many of the brave of the
jarth are not the good of the earth. To
jetu the same tent with those who have
110 regard for God or home; to hear their
noly religion sometimes slurred at; to be
placed under influences calculated to make
jne reckless; to have no Sabbath, except
such Sabbath as in most encampments
imounts to no Sabbath at all; togo out
from homes where all sauitary laws are
observed into surroundings where ques
tions of health are never discussed; to in
fade climes where pestilence holds posses
don; to make long marches under blister
ing skies; to stand on deck and in the
llelds under lire, at the merey of shot and
shell—we must admit that those thus ex
posed need especial care, and to the Omui
present God we have a right to eommend
them, and will commend them. Postal
communication may be interrupted, and
letters started from eamps or homes may
not arrive at the right destination, but
however far away our loved ones may be
from us, and however wide and deep the
seas that separate us, we may hold com
munication with them via the throne of
A shipwrecked sailor was found floating
on a raft, near the coast of California.
Willie in the hospital he told his experi
ence, and said that he had a companion ou
the eame raft for 6orne time. While that
companion was dying of thirst he said to
him: "'George, where are you going?' 1
and the lying sailor said: "I hope I am
going to God." "If you do," suid the res
cued sailor, "will you nsk Him to send
some water?'' After rtie death of his com
panion, the survivor said, Hie rain came in
torrents, and slaked his thirst and kept
him alive until he was taken to safety.
The survivor always thought it was in an

asking for water. Thank God we may
have direct and instantaneous communi
cation with the Lord Almighty through
Jesus Christ, His only begotten Son, and in
that faith we may secure the rescue of our

stores and factories with customers, and
that all the homes in this country now sad
dened by the departure of father or brother
or son may months before the Thanksgiv

were hauled down.
At Plymouth. England, on the 19th of
July, the prominent officers of the navy
were in a bowling alley, bowling with grc-at
glee—Lord Howard, the High Admiral;
Sir Martin Frohisher, the daring explorer,
and Sir Francis Drake, the first circum
navigator of the world—when word came
to them that the Spanish Armada was ad
vancing. The i'(fleers .continued at the
game of the bowling alley until the game
was finished, and then went out to investi
gate the tiding-!, and, sure enough, that
mighty fleet, which was considered invin
cible, and which was to bombard and over
throw England, was approaching, but the
invading navy was destroyed, for the Lord
Almighty appeared in the fight.
A storm such as had never swept tho
coast of England or aroused the ocean
swooped upon the Spanish Armada. Most
of the ships soon went down under the sea,
while others were driven helplessly along
to be splintered on the coasts of England,
Ireland, Scotland, and Norway. Another
Spanish Armada is crossing the Atlantic,
and we are ready to meet them. Tile same
God who destroyed the Armada in 1588
reigns in 1898. May He iu His might,
either through human arm or dumb ele
ment, defeat their squadron, and give vlo
torv to the old flag.
Yet what the world most wants Is Christ,
who is coming to take possession of all
hearts, all homes, all Nations; but the
world blocks the wheels of His chariot. I
would like to see thlscentury, wlii«h is now
almost wound up, find its peroration in
some mighty overthrow of tyrannies and a
mighty bulldingup of liberty and justice.
Almost all the centuries have ended witli
some stupendous event that transformed
Nations and chanced the map of the world.
It was so at tho close of the fourteenth cen
tury; it was so at the close of the flfteapth
century; It was so at the close of the Six
teenth century; It was so at the close of the
seventeenth century; it was so at the close
of the eighteenth century. May it be more
gloriously so at tho close.of the nineteeth
century! "Blessed be the Lord God of Is

Drink and Family Life.
Viewed from whatever standpoint, the
value of total abstinenoe cannot but be
apparent to all unbiased minds. But there
are some phases of the situation more
striking than others.
Here, for instance, Is the father of a fam
ily. Is it not to his advantage, as also to
the advantage of those who look up to
him as their natural protector, to live a
life free from all taint of drink aftd its de
grading associations? By restraining the
appetite for intoxicants, and so avoiding
their ovil Influence, is he not enabled to
give his children a better chance in life
than thev could possiDly obtain were he
to spend his substance in the saloons?
A home wherein peace prevails under
the blessed rule of sobriety Is one ot the
greatest advantages a child can possess.
"There is no place lite home"—if that
home is one in the true sense of the word,
if it is a plaoe wherein is concentrated the
affections of all the members of the fam
ily, if it is a haven where all may gather at
evening to refresh themselves with lovo
and kindness after the tolls of the day.
But if, instead, the father of the household
is a victim of the drink evil, or if—to
make the picture darker though perhaps
not much less common—the mother in
dulges in drink to excess, ho or she, so far i
as their children, their natural depend- .
ents, are concerned, has poured "the sweet j
milk of ooneord into hell," and made that
home a mockery. Many a man who to
day Is a disgrace to humanity might in al)
probability have been an ornament to so
ciety were it not for the intemperance
which destroyed Ills home life, and wrecked
the happiness of his vouth.
A home to a child should he the embodi
ment of everything good and pure and
inspiring. Other things being equal, the
home wherein total abstinence is the rule
is the very best preparatory school a child
can have for the great struggle of life
which all must face sooner or later.

Temperance and Athletics,
The Duke of Connaugbt recently spoke
of the improved sobriety in the British
army since he joined it. It is no doubt
very remarkable, nnd some of the credit
must be given to the Army Temperance As
sociation. But something is also due tc
the improvement in the social habits of the
officers, from whom the men naturally take
example; something, moreover, to the in
troduction of short servtce, as It was mninl)

of the canteen. And there is something
further, in the proof which several of Lord
Wolseley's campaigns and the recent light
ing of Gatacre's Brigade have given, that
abstinence from stimulants does no harm
in the field, and therefore cannot hurt pieu
in c.umps and quarters. But the main im
provement is undoubtedly due to the in
creased attention giv«n to gymnastic work
and to athletic sports. Men who go in for
these cannot attain excellence If they drink
to excess. And that has wrought a silent
revolution which is none the less effective
because it is not talked about. All these
things together have conspired to make

Flrftt Suction Dredging.
Probably the fir&t successful at
tempt at suction dredging was on the
construction of the Amsterdam canal j
in 1867, where a centrifugal pump was !
fitted to an old bucket dredge. A ver
tical shaft, driving a "spinner" three
feet six inches in diameter was fitted
near the bottom of an upright cylin
der twelve feet high, so arranged that
the contents of the buckets falling
through it were met by the ascending
column of water from the centrifugal
pump. This liquefied the silt, and it
was forced to the shore through wood
en pipes placed on buoys or floats.
These pipes were connected by leather
joints or sleeves. This machine
could deposit at a point 1200 feet dis
tant 2000 tons of solid matter to a
height of eight feet above water sur
face in twelve hours. Three years j
later double machines of this kind
were used on canal work at Cron
stadt, Russia. Attached to the ver
tical shaft of this machine, however,
were water jets under high pressure,
which were directed into the cylinder.
By this means stiff clay could be suf
ficiently broken up to be moved
ashore. This kind of machine was
afterward employed oh the Danube.—
Consul Smith, of Moscow, in a note
to the State Department, announces
the finding of a gold nugget weighing
seventy pounds in the Spasso Preo
brajensk mines, in the district of
i'eansay. This nugget is the eleventh
in size among those found in the
whole world, and second in size to
only one other found in Russia.
