SUNDAY'S DISCOURSE BY THE NOTED
"Silence in Heaven," the Snhjcct—The
Mighty Import of the Censation De
scribed 111 He relation*—Half Honrs
Which Have Determined Destinies.
TEXT: "There was silence in heaven
about the space of half an hour." —Reve-
lations, via., 1.
"Take this watch and keep it," said a
dying Christian as he picked it up from
the stand at bis pillow, "I have no more
need of it. I um Koing where time shall
be no longor." But it seems from my text
that heaven was at least onoe measured
by an earthly tjme-piece.
The busiest place in the universe is
heaven. It is the center from which all
good influences start; It is the goal at
which ull good results arrive. The Bible
represents it us active, with wheels and
wines and orchestras and processions,
mounted or charioted. But my text de
scribes a space wheu the wheels ceased to
roll and the trumpets to sound aud the
voices to chant. The riders on the white
horses reined In their chargers. The dox
ologies were bushed and the processions
halted. The band of arrest was put upon
all the splendors. "Stop, Heaven!" cried
an omnipotent voice, and it stopped. For
thirty minutes everything celestial stood
still. "There was silence in heaven for
the space of half an hour."
From ull we can learn it is the only time
heaven ever stopped. It does not stop, as
other cities, for the night, for there Is no
night there. It does not stop fora plague,
lot the inhabitant never says,"l am
sick." It does not stop for bankruptcies,
for its inhabitants never fail. It does not
stop for impassable streets, for tbero are
no fallen snows or sweeping ivesbets.
What, then, stopped it for thirty minutes?
Grotlus and Professor Stuart think It was
at the time of the destruction of Jerusa
lem. Mr. Lord thinks it was in the year
811, near the close ot the Diocletian perse
cution and the beginning of the wars by
which Constantine gained the throne. But
that was all a guess, though a learned aud
brilliant Ruess. I do not know when it
was, and I do not care when it was, but of
the fact that such an interregnum of sound
took place I am certain. "There wa9
silence in heaven for the space of half an
And. first of all, we may learn that God
and all heaven then honored silence. The
lull power of silence many of us have yet
to learn. We are told that when Christ
was arraigned "He answered not a word."
That silence was louder than any thunder
that ever shook the world. Ofttimes, when
we are assailed and misrepresented, the
mightiest thing to say is t« say nothing,
and the mightiest thing to do is to do noth
ing. Those people who are always rush
ing into print tc> get themselves set right,
accomplish nothing but their own chagrin.
Silencel Do right and leave the results
with God. Among tho grandest lessons
the world has ever learned are the lessons
of patience taught by those who endured
uncomplainingly personal or domestic or
political injustice. Oh, the power of
patient silence! Escbylua, the immortal
poet, was condemned to death lor writing
something that offended the people. All
the pleas in his behalf were of no avail, un
til his brother uncovered the arm of the
prisoner and showed that his wrist had
been sacrificed for his country at the battle
of Salamis. That silent plea liberated
him. The loudest thing on earth is silence
if it be of the right kin 1 and at tho right
time. There was a quaint old hymn,
spelled in the old style, once sung in the
The raoe is not forever get
By him who fastest runs,
Nor'the Battel by those peopell
That shoot with the longest gun.
Mv friends, the tossing sea of Galilee
seemed more to offend Christ by th<? amount
of noiso it made, for He said to it: "Be
still!" Heaven has been crowning Kings
and Queens unto God for many centuries,
yet heaven never stopped a moment for
any such occurrence, but it stopped thirty
minutes for the coronntion of Silence.
" There was silence in heaven for the space
of half an hour."
Learn also from my test that heaven
must be an eventful and active place, from
the fact that it could afford only thirty
minutes of recess. There have been events
on earth and In heaven that seemed to de
mand a whole day or whole week or whole
year for celestial consideration. If Grotius
was right and this silence occurred at tfie
time of the destruction of Jerusalem, that
scene was so awful and so prolonged that
the Inhabitants of heaven could not have
done justice to it in many weeks. After
fearful besiegement of the iwo fortresses of
Jerusalem Antonio and Hippicus—had
been going on for a long while, a Bo:nau
soldier mounted on the shoulder of another
soldier hurled into the window of the tem
ple a 'firebrand, and the temple was all
aflame, and after covering many sacrifices
to the holiness of God, the building itself
became a sacrifice to the rage of man. The
hunger of the peeple in that city during
the besiegement was so great" that as
some outlaws were passing a doorway and
inhaled the odors ot food they burst open
the door, threatening the mother of the
household witli death unless she gave
them some food, and she took them aside
and showed them tlmt it was her own child
she was cooking for the ghastly repast. Six
hundred priests were destroyed on Mount
Zion because, the temple being gone, there
was nothing for them to do. Six thousand
■>eople in one cloister were consumed.
There were 1,100,000 dead, according to
Josepbus. Grotius thinks that this was the
cause of silence In heaven for half an hour.
If Mr. Lord wa9 right, and this silence was
during the Diocletian persecutions, by
which 844.000 Christians suffered death
.rom sword and lire, and banishment and
exposure, why did not henven listen
throughout at least one of those awful
years? Nol Thirty minutes! The fact is
"hat the celestial programme is so crowded
with spectacle that it can afford only ono
recess in all eternity, and that for a short
space. While there are great chorouses in
vhieh all heaven can join, each soul there
aas a story of divine mercy peculiar to it
self, and it must bo a solo. How can heaven
>?et through with all its solos, as well as
ill its recitatives, with all its cantatas,
.vith all Its grand marches, with all its vic
ories? Eternity is too short to utter ull
. he praise.
Not only are all the triumphs of tho past
o be commemorated, but ull the triumphs
o come. Not only what we now know of
od, but what we will know of Him after
.•erlasting study of the Deiflc. If my test
ad said there was silence iu heaven for
hirty days, I would not have been startled
the announcement, but it indicates thir
minutes. Why, there will be so many
iends to hunt up; so many of the greatly
3od and useful that we will want to see;
) many of the unserutable things of earth
'e will need explained; so many exciting
irthly experiences we will want to talk
ver. and all the other spirits and the ages
ill want the same, that there will be no
iportunity foroessation. How busy we
ill be kept in having pointed out to us the
■roes and heroines that the world never
.lly appreciated—the yellow fever and
lolera doctors, who died not flying from
ieir posts; the female nurses who faced
•stllence in the laiarettoes; the railroad
ginee» who stayed at their places in or
•r to save the train, though they them
lves perished and went down through
i open drawbridge.
mbert Goffln, the master miner, who,
iJing from the bucket at the bottom of
■) mine, just as he heard the waters rush
, and when one jerk of the rope would
;ve lifted him to safety, nut a blind
Iner who wanted togo to his sick child
the bucket, and jerked the rope for him
be pulled up, crying: "Tell them the
iter has burst In and we are probably
it: but we will seek refuge at the other
end of the gallery," and then Riving the
command to the other miners till they,
digged themselves so near oat that the
people from the outside could eome to their
rescue. The multitudes of men and wom
en who got no crown on earth, *0 will
want to see when they get their crown in
heaven. I teli you heaven will have no
more half hours to spare.
Besides that, heaven is full of children.
They are in the vast majority. No child on
earth who amounts to anything can be kept
quiet half an hour, and how are you going
to keep 300,000,000 of tHem quiet half an
hour. You know heaven is much more of a
place than it was when that recess of thir
ty minutes occurred. Its population has
quadrupled, sextupled, centupled. Heaven
has more on hand, more of rapture, more
of knowledge, more of intercommunica
tion, more of worship. There is not so
much difference between Washington, a
mudhole seventy years ago, and Washing
ton now, the most beuatiful city on earth;
not so much difference between New York
when Canal street was far uptown, and
when Canal street is fur downtown, as
there is difference botween what heaven
was when my text was written and wbat
heaven is now. The most thrilling place
we have ever been in is stupid compared
with that and if we now have no time to
spare, w> will then have no eternity to
spare. Silence in heaven only half an hourl
My subject also Impresses me with the
immortality of a haif hour. That half
hour mentioned in my text is more widely
known than any other period in the cal
endar of heaven. None of the whole
hours of heaven are measured off, none
of the years, none of the centuries. Of the
millions of uges past, and the millions of
ages to come, not one is especially
measured off In the Bible. The half hour
of my text is made immortal. The only
part of eternity that was ever measured by
earthly timepiece was measured by the
minute hand of my text. Oh, the half
hours! They decide everything. I am
not asking what you will do with the years
or months or days of your life, but what
of the half hours. Tell me the history of
your half hours, and I will tell you the
story of your wholo life on earth and
the story of your whole life In eternity.
The risht or wrong things you can think
in thirty minutes, the right or wrong things
you can say in thirty minutes, the right or
wrong things you can do in thirty minutes
are glorious or baleful, Inspiring or desper
Look out for the fragments of time.
They are pieces of eternity. It was the
hall hours between shoeing horses that
made Elihu Burrltt the learned black
smith; the half hours between professional
calls as a physiclal that made Abercromble
the Christian philosopher; the half hours
Between his duties as school master that
made Salmon P. Chase Chief Justice; the
half hours between shoe lasts that made
Henry Wilson Vico-Fresident of the Cnlted
States; the half hours between canal boats
that made James A. Garileld President.
The half hour a day for good books or bad
books; the half hour a day for prayer or
indolence; the half hour a day for helping
others or blasting others; the half hour
before you go to business, and the half
hour after your return from business; that
makes the difference between the scholar
and the ignoramus, between the Christian
and the lnlldtl, between the saint and the
demon, between triumph and catastrophe,
between heaven and hell. The most tre
mendous things of your life and mine were
certain half hours.
Remember, we are mortal yet, and can
not endure the full roll of heavenly har
monies, and cannot endure even the silent
heaven for more than half an hour. Hark!
the clock in the tower of heaven begins to
strike, and the half hour is ended. De
scend! Come back! Com* down! till your
work Is done. Shoulder a little lodger your
battles. Weep a little longer your griefs.
Aud then take heaven not in its fullest half
hour, but in its mightiest pomp and instead
of taking it for thirty minutes, take it world
But how will you spend the first half hour
of your heavenly citizenship after you have
tyne into stay? After your prostration
before the throne iu worship of Him who
made it possible foryou to get there at all,
I think the rest of your first half hour in
heaven will be passed in receiving your re
ward if you have been faithful. I have a
strangely beautiful book, containing the
pictures of the medals struck by the Eng
lish Government in honor of fereat battles;
these medals pinned over the heart of the
returned heroes of the army, on great oc
casions, the royal family present, and
the royal bands playing—the Crimean
medal, the Legion of Honor, the Victoria
Cross, the Waterloo medal. In your first
half hour iu heaven in some way you will
bo honored for the earthly struggles in
wnieh you won the day. Stand up before
all the "royal house of heaven and receive
the insignia while you are announced as
victor over political misfortune, as victor
over the droughts and freshets of the farm
Held, victor over the temptations of the
stock exchange, victor over domestic in
felicities, victor over mechanic's shop, vic
tor over professional allurements, victor
over the storehouse, victor over home
worriments, victor over physical distress,
victor over hereditary depressions, victor
over sin and death and hell. Take the
badge that celebrates those victories
through our Lord Jesus Christ. Take it in
the presence of all the galleries, saintly,
angelic, and divine, while all heaven
chants: "These are they who came out of
great tribulation and had their robes
washed and made white in tho blood of the
Thy saints in all this glorious war *»
Shall conquer though they die;
They 9ee the triumph from afar,
And seize it with their eye.
If heaven is all this while halted, what
will it be when on the march? If h«aven
is all this while silent, what will It be when
in full triumph? Many years ago, at the
Crystal Palace, in New York, Julian gave a
great concert, 3000 voices and 3000 players,
upon instruments. He controlled that
great harmony, beating time with hand and
foot, and to myself, who had never before
heard music on a grand scale, it was over
powering. But oh, when they shall come
from the north and the south, and the east
and the west, and sit down in the temple
of God and the Lamb, and Christ shall
rise, and all heavenshall rise with Him, He
shall control that harmony with once
wounded hand and once wounded foot, and
it will be like the voice of many waters and
the voice of mighty thunderlngs. Worthy
is the Lamb that was slain to receive bless
ing and riches and honor and glory and
power. Amen and amenl

The barkeeper's wife has a sealskin coat,

Would dance and her heart would swell,
But I've always taken the price to buy
A cup of the liquid hell.

Whose pure lips touched with mine,

For the devil of rum I'll cast away,

The Panacea For Poverty. .
The Rev. Dr. Madison C. Peters, of New
York, snoke recently in the Auditorium at
Ocean Grove, N. J., on"The Panacea for
Poverty." In part he said:
"One of the supreme problems of the
hour is the auti-saloon issue. The entire
amount received for tariff in 1805 was less
than $135,000,000; the annual receipts from
customs for the three year? ending J line 30,
1804. was only *171,000,000.
"How utterly insignificant are these fig
ures compared to the $1.000,000,000 which,
it is reliably estimated, is the direct tribute
which the people of this country annually
pay to support the liquor traffic! The or
dinary expenses of the United States Gov
ernment during 1835 was less than $375,-
000,000, so that the liquor bill for that year
was threetlmestheamount required to run
the entire Government of the United States.
"No power that can b» obtained by labor
combinations can help the laboring man
who spends his money in drink. What has
becomo of the billions and billions of dol
lars in this country paid to the working
classes? Much of it'has gone for the ne
cessities of life, but it is estimated that
fully one-half of the drink bill of the
country comes out of tho wages of the

and their families and pay the enormous
rents of their dram shops and hope to pros
per themselves. There Is no reason, if we
are a sober people, why poverty should bo
known in America, the envy of the nations.
What, then, is the matter? Profossor Pea
body, of Harvard, writes to the Forum that
the result of au investigation in Boston
was that in 1805 the number of persons vis
iting the saloons of that city every day
was 220,752, or nearly half the entire popu
lation. If each person expended ten cents
the amount for the year would be $6,802,-
560, or more than the amount of money
spent in public schools. lire department,
police department and public parks.
"Following the estimate of George B.
Wuldron, based upon Government reports,
of $lO spent for shoes, tracing them back
through the tannery and factory, $2.80
goes to pay the farmer for his hides and
$2.91 to the tanners and shoemakers. Of
$lO spent for a suit of clothes $2.28 goes to
the farmer and $2.77 for wages to the
splnuer, the weaver and the tailor, and so
on through the industries. But out of $lO
spent for beer or whisky onlv ninety-six
cents goes to the farmer for his grain and
thirty-eight cents to the man who pro
duces the ltquor.
"Every time that a man spends a nickel
for bread instead of for beer ho pays the
difference between sixty-eight per cent,
and seventeen per cent. Not overproduc
tion but underconsumption, is our trouble
now. You cannot spend your money In the
saloons and in the stores also. Close the
saloons and more goods of all kinds will be
demanded. The wives and children of men
who drink wear too few shoes, too few
clothes and have too little food.
More capital is Invested and less
labor is employed in the liquor industry
than in any" other Industry in the
Uuited States. A gallon of whisky costs
about $3 and contains about sixty-five fif
"Now. if must drink, buy a gallon and
make your wife barkeeper. When you are
dry give her fifteen cents for a drink, and
when the whisky is gone she will have,
after paying for it, $6.75 left, and every
gallon thereafter will yield the same profit.
This money she should put awayffco that

This was the advice an actor gave to his
friend. In spite of the hard times last
year, the citizens of New York drank 5,051,-
000 barrels of all kinds of liquors at a cost
"Now, this vast sum, diverted by law
and the Gospel to tho purchase of necessi
ties, would give to New York such a busi
ness boom that we should have to work
night and day with two or three shifts

The Drunkard at a Citizen.
If we look upon a man a3 an individual
of the great family of human beings, his
sin of intemperance becomes a greater
curse still. As a member of society, each
one has got his place, works to perform,
obligations to comply with, towards the
state in which he lives. Under a constitu
tional government wo enjoy liberty. The
drunkard abuses this liberty. His intem
perance makes him incapable of obeying or
appreciating the law, because drunkenness
destroys his reason and annihilates his
judgment. It is tho duty of each individual
to assist, as far as in his power lies, the
government under which he lives. In mak
ing and obeying the laws of the land, to
support its institutions and to fulfil his
duties to his fellow man. Does the drunk
ard do it? He continually offends against
the laws; he is not only unable to pay his
portion of taxation, but, owing to his vices,
prisons, hospitals, police, judges, poor
houses, asvlums, madhouses, have to be
maintained at enormous expense, and so to
the damage of his fellow citizens: the
drunkard then acts unfairly and unjustly
to his fellow creatures.

"Will you cash that, please?"
"Certainly, but it requires a stamp."
"A stamp; a bank check stamp. Up

"Well, why don't you put it on?"
"We are not the ones to put it on.

"It's a war tax."

been out of town and didn't know
about the law."
"It wasn't necessary to know it un

"How ridiculous. And you won't
let me have any money until I put a
stamp in the corner?"
"We are obliged to insist that the
tax be paid."
"Supposing I give you two cents?"
"That will do."
"But I haven't two cents."
"Perhaps you could borrow it of

"As a banker I couldn't countenance
