SUNDAY'S DISCOURSE BY THE NOTED
Subject: "Sprinkled and Clean»ed," In
Which the Story of tlie Shedding of
Blood For tile Removing of Sin is
Dwelt Upon—Cliriit and the Soul.
TEXT: "Anil the priest shall command
that oue of the birds be killed la aa earthen
vessel, overrunning water. As for the liv
ing bird, he shall take it, and the cedar-
Wood, and the scarlet, and the hyssop, and
shall dip them and the living bird in tbe
bl< id of the bird that was killed over the
tunning water; and he shall sprinkle upon
him that is to be cleansed from the leprosy
seven times,and shall pronounco him clean,
and shall let the living bird loose into the
open Held."—Leviticus xlv., 5-7.
The Old Testament, to very many people,
Is a great slaughter-house strewn with
blood, and bones, and horns, and hoofs of
butchered animals. It offends their sight;
it disgusts their.taste; it actually nauseates
the stomach. But to the intelligent Chris
tian the Old Testament is a magnificent
corridor through which Jesus advances.
As He appears at the other end of the cor
ridor we can only see the outlines of His
character: coming nearer, we can descry
the features. But wheu, at last He steps
upon the platform of the New Testament,
amid the torches of evangelists and apos
tles, the orchestras of heaven announce Him
with a blast of minstresly that wakes up
Bethlehem at midnight.
There were a great many cage* of birds
brought dowu to Jerusalem for sacrifice—
sparrows, aud pigeons, and turtle-doves.
I can hear them now, wliistliug, caroling
and singing all arouud about the Temple.
When a lepsr was to be cured of his lep
rosy, in order to his cleansing two of these
birds were taken; one of them was slain
over an earthen vessel of running water
that is, olear, fresh water, and then the
bir.l was killed. Auother bird was then
taken, tie lto a hyssop-branch, and plunged
by the priest into the blood of the lirst bird;
aud then, with this hyssop-brauch, bird
dippjil, the priest would sprinkle the leper
seven times, then untie the bird from the
hyssop-brauch, and it would go soaring
Jnto the heaven*.
Now open your eves wide, my dear
brethren and sisters, and see that that tlrst
bird meant Jesus, and that the second bird
meant your own soul.
I notice also in my text that tho bird that
was slain was a clean bird. The text de
manded that it should be. The raven was
never sacrificed, nor the cormorant, nor
the vulture. It must be a clean bird says
the text; and it suggests the pure Jesus
the holy Jesus. Although He spent His
boyhood in the worst village on earth,
although blasphemies were poured into
His ear enough to have poisoned anyone
else, He stands before the world a perfect
I remark, also, in regird to tills llrst
bird mentioned in tho text that it was a
defenseless bird. When the eagle is as
saulted. with its iron beak it strikes liko a
bolt against its adversary. This was a
dove or a sparrow, we do not know just
which. Take the dove or pigeon in your
hand, and the pecking of its beak oil your
hand makes you laugh at the feebleness of
None to help! The murderers have it
all their own way. Where was the soldier
Jn the Roman regiment who swung his
sword in the defense of the Divine Martyr?
Did they put one drop of oil on His gashed
fevt? Was there one in all that crowd
manlv and generous enough to stand out
for Hltn? Were the miscreants at the
cross any more interfered with in their
work of spiking Him fast than the carpen
ter in his shop driving a nail through a pine
board? The women cried, but there was
no balm in their tears. None to help!
None to help! O my Lord Jesus, none to
Oh, this dove of the text, In its last mo
ment, clutched not with angry talons. It
plunged not a savage beak. It was a dove
—heipless, defenseless. None to help!
None to help!
As, after a severe storm in the morning,
you go out and flnd birds dead on the
ground, so this dead bird of the text makes
me think of that awful storm that swept
the earth on Crucifixion day, wheu the
wrath of God and the malice of man and
the fury of devils wrestled beneath the
But I come now to speak to this second
bird of the text. We must not let that fly
away until we have examined It. Thepriast
took the second bird, tied it to the hyssop
branch, and then plunged it in the blood of
the first bird. Ah! that Is my soul, plunged
for cleansing in tho Saviour's blood. There
is not enough water in the Atlantic and
Pacific Oceans to wash away our smallest
sin. Sin is such an outrege of God's uni
verse that nothing but blood can atone for
it. You know the life is in the blood, and
as the life had been forfeited, nothing
could buy it back but blood.
As this second bird of tho text was
plunged in the blood of the first bird, so we
must be washed in the blood of Christ or go
I notice now that as soon as this second
bird was dipped in the blood of the first
bird, the priest unloosened it and it wns
free—free of wing and free of foot. It could
whet its beak on any tree branch it chose,
It could peck the grapes of any vineyard
it chose. It was free; a type of our souls
nfter we have washed in"the blood of the
Lamb. We can go where we will. We can
do what we will.
If a man has become a Christian, he is no
moreafraid of Sinai. Thethunders of Sinai
do not frighten him. You hare, on some
August day, seen two thunder-showers
meet. One cloud from this mountain, and
another cloud from that mountain, coming
nearer and nearer together, and responding
to each other, crash to crash, thunder to
thunder, boom! boom! And then the clouds
break nnd the torrents pour, nnd they are
emptied perhaps Into the very same stream
that comes down so red at your feet, that
it seems as if all the carnage of the storm
battle hns been emptiod into it. So In this
Bible I see two storms gather, one above
Binai, the other above Calvary, and they re
spond one to the other—flash to flash,
thunder to thunder, boom! boom! Sinai
thunders, 'The soul that sinneth. it shall
die;" Calvary responds: "Save them from
going down to the pit, for I have founa a
ransom." Sinai says: "Woe! woe!" Cal
vary answers: "Mercy! mercy!" and then
the clouds burst, and empty their treasures
into one torrent, and it comes flowing to
our feet, red with the carnage of our Lord
—ln which, if thy soul be plunged, like the
bird in the text, It shall go forth free—
Why, Is not a man free when he gets rid
of his sins? The sins of the tongue gone;
the sins of action gone; the sins of the mind
gone. All the transgressions of thlrtv,
forty, flfty, seventy years gone—no more in
the soul than the malaria that floated in
the atmosphere a thousand years ago; for
when my Lord Jesus pardons a man He
pardoas him, and there is no halfway work
Here I see a beggar going along the
turnpike road. He is worn out with dis
ease. He is stilt in the joints. He Is ul
cered all over. He has rheum in his eyes.
He is sick and wasted. He is in rdgs.
Every time he puts down his swollen feet,
he cries, "Oh! the pain!'* He sees a foun
tain by the roadside under a tree, and he
crawls up to that fountain nnd 'gays: "I
must wnsh. Here I may cool my ulcers.
Here I may get rested." He stoops down
and scoops up in the palms of his hands
enough water to slack bis thirst; and that
is all gone. Then he stoops down and be
gins to wash his eyes; and the rheum is all
gone. Then he puts in his swollen feet
ana the swelling is gone. Then, willing no
longer to be only half cured, he plunges in
and his whole body is laved in the stream'
and he gets upon the bank well. Mean
time the owner of the mansion up yonder
comes down, walking through the ravine
with His only Son, and Ho sees the bundl*
of rags, and aslcs: "Whose rags are these?"
A voice from the fountain says: "Those are
my rags." Then says the Master to His
Bon: "Go up to the house and get the best
new suit you can find and bring it down."
And He brings down thee lothes, and the
beggar is clothed In them, and
he looks around and says: "l
was filthy, but now I am clean. I
was ragged, but now I am robed. I was
blind, but now I see. Glory be to the
owner of that mansion; and glory be to
that Son who brought me that new suit
of clothes; and glory be to this fountain
where I have washed, and where all who
will may wash and be clean 1" Where sin
abounded, grace doth much more abound
The bird has been dipped, now let It fly
The' next thing I notice about this bird,
when it was loosened (and this Is the main
idea), is, that it flew away. Which way
did it go? When you let a bird loose from
your grasp, which way does It fly? Up.
What are wings for? To fly with. Is there
anything In the suggestion of the direc
tion taken by that bird to Indicate which
way we ought togo?
"Rise, my soul and stretch thy wings.
Thy better portion trace;
Rise from transitory things
To heaven, thy native place."
We should be going heavenward. That
is the suggestion. But I know that we
have a great many drawbacks. You had
them this morning, perhaps. Yon had
them yesterday, or the day before, and
although you want to be going heaven
ward, you are constantly discouraged. But
I suppose when that bird went out of the
priest's hands it wont by inflections—some
times stooping. A bird does not shoot di
rectly up, but this is the motion of a bird.
So the soul soars toward God, rising up
in love, aud sometimes depressed by trial.
It does not always go in the direction it
would like to go. But the main oourse is
right. There is one passage in the Bible
which I quote oftener to myself than any
other: "He knoweth our frame, and Ho
remombereth that we are dust."
There Is a legend In Iceland which says
that when Jesus was a boy, playing with
His comrades one Sabbath day, Ho made
birds of clay; and as these birds of clay
were standing upon the ground, an old
Sadducee came along,and he was disgusted
at the sport,and dashed the birds to pieces,
but tho legend says that Jesus waved His
hand above the broken birds,and they took
wings and went singing heavenward. Of
course.that is a fable among the Icelanders;
but it is not a fable that we are dust, and
that, the hand of divine grace waved over
us once, we go singing toward the skies.
I wish, my friends, that we could live in
a higher atmosphere. If a man's whole
life object is to make dollars, he will be
running against those wjio are making dol
lars. If his whole object is to get applause,
ho will run against those who are seeking
applause. But if he rises higher than that,
ho will not be interrupted in his flight
heavenward. Why does that flock of birds,
flouting up against tho blue sky so high
that you cau hardly see them, not change
its course for spire or tower? They are
above all obstruction. So we would not
have so often to change our Christian
course if we lived in a higher atmosphere,
nearer Christ, nearer tho thronoof God.
Oil ye who have beau washed in thelblood
of Christ—ye who have been loosed from
the liyssop-branoh— start heavenward. It
may be to some of you a long flight.
Temptations may dispute your way; storms
of bereavement "and trouble may strike
your soul; but God will see you through.
Build not on the earth. Sot your affections
on things in heaven, not on things on
earth. This is a perishing world. Its
(lowers fade. Its fountains dry up. Its
promises cheat. Set your affections upon
Christ and heaven. I rejoice, my dear
brethren and sisters in Christ, that the
flight will, after a while, be ended. Not
always beaten of the storm. Not always
going on weary wings. There is a warm
dovecot of eternal dust where we shall flnd
a place of comfort, to the everlasting joy
of our souls. Oh, they are going up nil the
time—going up from this church—going up
from all the families nnd from all the
churches of the land—the weary doves
seeking rest in a dovecot.
Oh. that in that good land we may all
meet when our trials are over! Wo can
not get into the glorious presence of our
departed ones unless we have been cleansed
in the same blood tnat washed their sins
away. I know this is true of all who have
gone in. that they were plunged in the
blood, that they were unloosed from the
hyssop-branch. Tneu they went singing
Into glory. See that ye refuse not Him
that speaketh, for if they escaped not who
refused Him that spake on earth, how
much more shall not we escape If we turn
away from Him that speaketh from heaven?

Soldiers Fight Better Without Drink.
Liquor haH until recently played so im
portant a role in warfare, to the horrors
of which it has in no small measure con
tributed, that the fact of Sir Horatio
Kitchener's recent victory at Atbara, in
the Soudan, having been won by a forco
composed exclusively of total abstainors
calls for serious consideration and atten
tion. It is probably the first occasion that
so brilliant a feat of arms has been
achieved by a body of white troops who for
months previously had not been permitted
to touch a drop of any kind of stimulant
whatsoever. For if not only "Tommy At
kins" of the line, but even his comrade,
"Sandy," of the Highland regiments, whose
namesuggests whisky, have refrained from
alcohol in any form whatsoever, and have
restricted themselves to tea, lime juice and
Nile water, it cannot be attributed to any
conscientious scruples on their part or to
the sudden development of high-fledged
principles on the score of drink, but solely
to the establishment ot a new system by
the British military authorities, which is
exciting a good deal of Interest on the part
of the War Departments of Continental
Europe, and which, in view of the conflict
now in progress between this country and
Spain, inny likewise commend Itself to
Secretary Alger and General Miles.
It seems that for some time, by orders of
Field Marshal Lord Wolseley, the British
Commander-in-Chief, careful and exhaus
tive experiments have been In progress
with a view to ascertaining the relative
effects of alcohol and of total abstinence
upon the physical endurance and staying
qualities of the troops. Advantage has
been taken both of the annual maneuvers,
as well as of these petty wars of which
England has a few on band in one part or
another of the world almost all the time,
to examine carefully the question. One
regiment would be deprived of every drop
of stimulant, while another belonging to
the tame brigade would be allowed to pur
chase as usual its irialt liquors at the can
teen, and a third, probably a Highland
corps, would receive n sailor's ration of
grog in the form of whisky. In each in
stance the experiment went to show that,
whereas at first the oorps which hail re
ceived an allowance of grog surpassed the
others 111 dash and In impetuosity of at
tack, yet that after the third or fourth day
Its members began to show notable signs
of lassitude and a lack of spirit and endur
ance. The same manifestations, though in
a minor and slower degree, were npparent
in the regiments restricted to malt liquors,
whereas the men who had been kept from
(■very kind of stimulant increased in stay
ing power, alertness and vigor every day.
The result of these experiments led the
British War Department to decide, not on
the ground of principle, but solely for the
sake of maintaining the powers of endur
ince of the troops now engaged in the Sou
3au campaign, not to permit a single drop
ot stimulant in camp.
A Itnin of Gold.
There is n Chinese tradition which tells
that, four thousand years ago, the Em
peror of China was much troubled with the
wretchedness and destitution of his peo
ple, many thousands of whom lived amid
scenes of squalor and brutishness.
All at once he recognteed that the bad
habits of his people had much to do with
the bad habitations in which they were
existing. The Emperor, by a wise act of
authority, with a stroke of his pen closed
up every liquor shop in Chinn; and the
tradition records that for three days the
heavens rained gold, and the people, being
sober, ttere able to gather in the rich har
vest of the bountiful skies.
Archbishop Farrar, in referring to tilts
■ radition, says: "Considering that there is
hardly a pauper in England who has not
wasted on intoxicants enough to have
secured him long ago a freehold house and
1 good annuity, I say that, if the curse of
irl 11k were thoroughly expelled, it would
rain gold in England, not for three days,
but for many days."
No ltum Town Wanted.
Rome time ago n man met a company of
capitalists who were auxious to locate a
large plant near Boston. He was very
anxious to induce them to come to his
city. He said he know a town a few miles
from Boston, with splendid water, first
class railway connections, cheap, abun
dant labor, low-priced land and plenty of it.
The capitalists were interested at once
and said that was just what they werelook
ing for. "What Is the name of the town?"
they asked. On hearing the name they ex
claimed, "Why, that is the uame ofthat
ruin town, Isn't it?" "Well, yes, wo do
have saloons there." "No, sir," was the
reply; "none of it for us. Our factory
goes where there are no saloons. We
would rather pay higher wages and hove
poorer accommodations, for we'd more
than save the difference in sober working
men. Besides, out of twenty-five towns

Two riggers in a Western city a few
years ago performed a feat that foi
daring and steadiness of nerve equal q
anything on record, says the Phila
Repairs were necessary at the top
of a very high church steeple. There
was no way to reach the spot from the
inside, and the riggers procured a
uumber of light ladders and lashed
them, one above the other, to the out
side of the steeple. The topmost lad
der, however, was not high enough to
enable them to reach the desired spot,
and as the upper part of the steeple
was too small to permit the proper
lashing to it of a ladder, a daring ex
pedient was resorted to.
One of Ihs men carrying a pot of
melted solder climbed from one lad
der to another until he had reached
the last one, and then, bracing him
self, he raised an extra ladder that
the other rigger had brought up in
his hand, and leaned it against the
steeple. Then the man below grasped
this ladder and held it steady while
the man above mounted it to the point
where the work was to be done. He
began the work at once, and all prom
ised well until suddenly he jostled the
solder pot, and the fiery stuff ran out
and fell over the hands of the man
who was holding the ladder.
But the brave fellow did not move.

From the Free J'ress, I/etroU, Mich.
A prominent business man recently ex
pressed the opinion that there is one thing
that will prevent women from completely
filling man's place in the business world—
they can't be depended upon because they
are sick too often. This is refuted by Mrs.
C. W. Mansfield, a business woman of 58
Farrar St., Detroit, Mich., who says:
"A complication of female ailments kept
me awake nights and wore me out. I could
get 110 relief from medicine and hope was
slipping away from me. A young lady in
my employ gave me a box of Dr. Williams'
I'ink Tills for Pale People. I took them
and was able to rest at night for the first
time in months. I bought more andtook
them and they cured me as they also cured
several other people to my knowledge. I
think that if you should ask any of the drug
gists of Detroit, who are the best buyers of
Dr. William^'Tink Pills they would say the
young women. These plils certainly build
up the nervous system and many a young

Symbol of the Sunflower.
Speaking of yellow, the sunflower,
in flower language, is symbolical of
false riches, for the following reasons:
The Spaniards, when they invaded
Peru, beheld gold ou every haud, and
when they saw the country covered
with golden-colored flowers they im
agined they, too, must Vie pure gold—
not the only case where appearances
have been deceitful. But by a per
verse contradiction of this story the
Spaniards themselves adopt thiß flower
as a symbol of faith, and one of their
poets says; "Real faith is like the
sun's fair flowers, which, 'midst the
clouds that shroud it, and the winds
that wave it to and fro, and all the
change of air, and earth, and skv,
doth rear its head and looketh up,
still steadfast, to its God."—Bost-on
Klectrictty Under Water.
The use of wire cables under water
for conducting electric currents was
resorted to as early as 1812 by Baron
Schilling for exploding mines in the
Neva. It is also a well-authenticated
fact that. Colonel Parsley used the
same method to blow up the wreck of
the Royal George in 1838, in tho dock
at Spithead. It is not unlikely that
the first idea of an Atlantic cable
sprang from these early suocesses with
the current under water.
