TEXT: "Then said they unto him, Say,
oow Shibboleth, and he said Blbboletb;
(or he could not frame to pronounce it
right. Then they took bim and slew him
at the passages of Jordan."—Judges x11.,6.
Do you notice the difference of pronun
ciation between shibboleth and sibboleth?
A very small and unimportant difference,
you say. And yet, that difference was tbe
difference between life and death for a
great many people. The Lord's people,'
Qllead and Ephralm, got into a great fight,
and Ephralm was worsted, and on the re
treat came te the fords of the river Jordan
to cross. Order was given that nil Eph
ralmites coming there be slain. But how
could it bo found out who were Ephraim-
Ites? They were detected by their pronun
ciation. Shibboleth was a word that stood
for river. The Ephraimites had a brogue
of their own, and when they tried to say
"shibboleth" always left out tbe sound of
the "h." When it was asked that they say
Bhibboleth they said sibboleth, and were
slain. "Then said they unto bim, say now
Bhibboleth; and he said sibboleth, for be
could not frame to pronounce it right.
Then they took him and slew him at tbe
passages of Jordan." A very small differ
ance, you say, between Gilead and Eph
raim, and yet how much intolerance about
that small difference? The Lord's tribes
In our time—by which I mean the different
denominations of Christians—sometimes
magnify a very small difference, and tbe
only difference between scores of denomin
ations to-day is the difference between
shibboleth and sibboleth
The Church of God is divided into a great
number of denominations. Time would
fail me to tell of the Calvinists, and the Ar
minians, and the Sabbatarians, and the
Baxterians, and the Dunkers, and the
Shakers, and the Quakers, and the Metho
dists, and the Baptists, and the Episcopal
ians, and the Lutherans, and the Congre
gationalists, and the Presbyterians, and tbe
Spiritualists, and a score of other denomi
nations of religionists, some of them found
ed by very good men, some of them found
ed by very egotistic .men, some of them
founded by very bad men. But as I de
mand for myself liberty of conscience, I
must give that same liberty to every other
man, remembering that he no more differs
from me than I differ from him. I advo
cate the largest liberty in all religious be
lief and form of worship. In art, in poli
tics, in morals, and In religion, let there be
no gag law, no meving of the previous
question, no persecution, no intolerance.
You know that the nir and the water
keep pure by constant circulation, and X
think there is a tendency in religious dis
cussion to purification and moral health.
Between the fourth and the sixteenth cen
turies the church proposed te make people
think aright by prohibiting discussion, and
by strong censorship of the press, and
rack, and gibbet, and hot lead down the
throat, tried to make people orthodox; but
it was discovered that you cannot change
a man's belief by twisting off his head, nor
make a man see differently by putting an
awl through his eyes. There "is something
in a man's conscience which will hurl off
the mountain that you threw upon It, and
unsinged of tiie fire, out of the llamo will
make red wings on which tho martyr will
mount te glory.
In that time of which I speak, between
the fourth and sixteenth centuries, peo
ple went from the house of God into the
most appalling iniquity, and right along
by consecrated altars there were tides of
drunkenness and licentiousness such as
the world never heard of, and the very
sewers of perdition broke loose and flood
ed the church. After 'awhile the printing
press was freed, and it broke the shackles
of tho human mind. Then there came a
large number of bad books, and where
there was one man (hostile to the Christian
religion, there were twenty men ready to
advocate it; so I have not any nervousness
In regard to this battle going on between
Truth and Error. The Truth will con
quer just as certainly as that God is
stronger than the Devil. Let Error run if
you only let Truth run along with it.
Urged on by skeptic's shout and transcen
dentalist's spur, let it run. God's angels
of wrath are in hot pursuit, and quicker
than eagle's beak clutches out a hawk's
heart, God's vengeance will tear it to
I propose to speak to you of sectarian
ism—its origin, its evils, and its cures.
There are those who would make us think
that tfcis monster, with horns and hoofs,
Is religion. I shall chase it to its hiding
place, and drag it out. of the caverns of
darkness, and rip oftits hide. But I want
to make a distinctioaUjetween bigotry and
tha lawful fondness for peculiar religious
beliefs and forms of worship. I have no
admiration for a nothingarian.
In a world of sucli tremendous vicissi
tude and temptation, and with a soul that
must after awhile stand before a throne of
insufferable brightness, in a day when the
rocking of the mountains and the flaming
of the heavens and the upheaval of the seas
shall be among the least of the excite
ments, to give account for every thought,
word, action, preference, and dislike—that
man is mad who ha 9 no religious prefer
ence. But our early education, our physi
cal temperament, our mental constitution,
will very much decide our form of wor
A style of psalmody that may please me
may displease you. Some would like to
have a minister in gown and bands and
surplice, and others prefer to have a min
ister in plain citizen's apparel. Some are
most impressed when a little child is pre
sented at the altar and sprinkled of the
waters of a holy benediction "in the name
of the Father, and of the Son, and of the
Holy Ghost," und others are more impressed
when the penitent comes up out of the
river, his garments dripping with the
waters of a baptism which signlKee the
■washing away of sin. Let; either have his
own way. One man likes no noise In
prayer, not a word, not a whisper. An
other man, just as good, prefers by gestic
ulation and exclamation to express liis de
votional aspirations. One is just as good
as tho other. "Every man fully persuaded
in his own mind."
George Whitefleld was going over a
Quaker rntber roughly for some of his re
ligious sentiments, and the Quaker said:
"George, I am as thou art: I am for bring
ing all men to the hope of the Gospel;
therefore, If thpu wilt not quarrel with me
about my broad brim, I will not quarrel
with thee about thy black gown. George,
give me thy hand."
In 'jraMng o\it the religion of sectarian
ism or bigotry I And tbat a great deal of it
conies from wrong education in the home
circle. There are parents who do not think
it wrong to caricature and jeer the peculiar
forms of religion in the world, and de
nounce other sects and other denomina
tions. I could mention the names of prom
inent ministers of the Gospel who spent
their whole lives bombarding other de
nominations and who lived to eee their
children preach tho Gospel in those very
denominations. But it is often the case
that bigotry ttnrts in a household, and
that the subject of it never recover?.
There are tens of thousands of bigots ten
Bigotry is often the child of lgnoranco.
You seldom find a man with large intellect
who is a bigot, It is the man who thinks
•e knows a great deal, but does not. That
.man is almost always a bigot. The whole
tandency of education and civilization is
to bring a man out of that kind of state of
mind and heart.
I So I have set before yau what I consider
lo be the oauses of bigotry. I have set be
fore you tho origin of this great evil.
What are some of the baneful attests?
First of all. It cripples investigation. Tot
are wrong, and I am right, and tbat end
it. No taste for exploration, no sptrlt o
investigation. From the glorious realm o
God's truth, over which an archange
might fly from eternity to eternity and not
reaoh tbe limit, tbe man shuts himself ouj
and dies, a blind mole under a corn-shook;
While each denomination of Christian!
is to present all tbe truths of the Bible, ii
seem to me tbat God has given to each de
nomination an especial mission to glv«
particular emphasis to some one doctrine;
and so the Calvlnlstlo ehurches must pre
sent the sovereignty of God, and the Ar
mlnlan ehurohes must present man's fret
agency, and the Episcopal churches must
present the Importance of order and solemn
ceremony, ana the Baptist churches must
present the necessity of ordinances, and
the Congregational churches must present
the responsibility of the individual mem
ber, and the Methodist ehurohes must show
what holy enthusiasm, hearty congrega
tional singing can accomplish, while
each denomination of Christians must set
forth all the doctrines of the Bible, I feel
it is especially incumbent upon each de
nomination to put particular emphasis on
some one doctrlue.
Another great damage done by the sec
tarianism and bigotry of tbe church is that
it disgusts people with the Christian relig
ion. Again bigotry and sectarianism do
great damage In tha fact that they hinder
the triumph of the Gospel. Oh, how much
wasted ammunition! How many men of
splendid Intellect have given their whole
life to controversial disputes when, if they
had given their life to something practical,
they might have been vastly useful! Sup
pose, while I speak, there were a common
enemy oomlng up the bay, and all the forts
around the harbor began to tire into each
other—you would cry out "National suicldel
Why don't those forts blaze away In on«
direction, and that against the common
Besides that, if you want to build up anj
denomination, you will never build It up
by trying to pull some other down. Intol

much has intolerance accomplished, for in
stance, against the Methodist Church? For
long years her ministry were forbidden the
pulpits of Great Britain. Why was it that
so many of them preached in the fleldsl
Simply because they could not get in the
churches. And the name of the church
was given in derision and as a sarcasm.
The critics of the church said, "They have
no order, they have no method in their
worship;" ;and the critics, therefore, Is
Irony, called them "Methodists."
■ I am told that in Astor Library, New
York, kept as curiosities there are seven
hundred and seven books and pamphlets
against Methodism. Did intolerance stop
that church? No; it is either first or second
amid the denominations of Christendom,
her missionary stations In all parts of tbe
world, her men not only important in re
ligious trusts, but important also in seculai
trusts. Church marching on and the mori
intolerance against ft the faster it marched.
What did intolerance accomplish against
the Baptist Church? If laughing scorn ami
tirade could have destroyed the church it
would not have to-day a diseiple left. The
Baptists were hurled out of Boston in oldes
times. Those who sympathized with them
were imprisoned, and when a petition was
offered asking leniency in their behalf, all
the men who signed it were indicted. Has
intolerance stopped the Baptist Churoh'i
The last statistics in regard to it showed
forty-four thousand churches and foui
million communicants. Intolerance nev'ei
put down anything.
In England a law was made against th<
Jew. England thrust back tho Jew and
thrust down the Jew, and declared that na
Jew should hold official position. What
came of it? Were the Jews destroyed?
Was their religion overthrown? No. Whc
became Frime Minister of England? Whc
was next to the throne? Who was higher
than the throne becuuse he was counsellor
and adviser? Dlsruell, a Jew. What were
we celebrating in all our churches as well
as synagogues only a few years ago? The
one hundredth birthday of Montetlore, the
great Jewish philanthropist. Intolerance
never yet put down anything.
I think we may overthrew the sever#
sectarianism and bigotry in our hearts,
and in the church also, by realizing that
all the denominations of Christians have
yielded noble institutions and noble men.
There is nothing that so stirs my soul as
this thought. One denomination yielded
a Kobert Hall and an Adonlram
Judson; another yielded a Latimer and
a Melville; another yielded John Wesley
and the blessed Summerfleld, while out
own denomination yielded John Knox
and tho Alexanders—men of whom the
world was not worthy. Now, I say, if we
are honest and fair-minded men, when w«
come up in the presence of such churches
and such denominations, although they
may be different from our own, we ought
to admire tbem, and we ought to love and
honor them. Churches which can produce
such men, and such large hearted charity,
and such magnificent martyrdom, ought to
win our affection—at any rate, our respect.
So come on, ye six hundred thousand
Episcopalians in this country, and ye four
teen hundred thousand Presbyterians, and
ye four million Baptists, and ye five mil
lion Methodists—come on; shoulder to
shoulder we will march forthe world's con
quest; for all nations are to be saved, and
God demands that you and I help. For*

Christian Associations, in the Bible So
ciety, in the Tract Society, in the Foreign
Missionary Society, shoulder to shouldel
Perhaps I might forcibly Illustrate this
truth by calling your attention to an inci
dent which took place twenty-five years
ago. One Monday morning at about two
o'clock, while her nine hundred passen
gers were sound asleep in her bertha
dreaming of home, the steamer Atlantic
crashed into Mars' Head. Five hundred
souls in ten minutes landed In eternity!
Ob, what a scene! Agonized men and wo
men running up and down the gangways,
and clutching for the rigging, and the
plunge of the helpless steamer, and the
clapping of the hands of the merciless sea
over the drowning fnnd the dead, threw
two continents into terror. But see this
brave quartermaster pushing out with the
life-line until he gets to the rock; and see
these fishermen gathering up the ship
wrecked and taking them into the cabins
and wrapping them in flannels snug and
warm; and see that minister of the Gospel
with three other men getting into a
life-boat and pushing out for the
wreek, pulling away across the
surf, and pulling away until they had saved
one more man and then getting back witb
him to the shore. Can those men ever for
get that night? And can they forget their
companionship in peril, companionship in
struggle, companionship in awful catas
trophe and rescue? Neverl Never! In
whatever part of the earth they meet, they
will be friends when they mention the
story of that night when the Atlantlo
struck Mars' Head. Well, my friends,
our world has gone Into a worse ship
wreck. Sin drove it on the rocks. The
old ship has lurched and tossed in the
tempests of six thousand years. Out witb
the life-llnel I do not care what denomina
tion rows it. Side by side, In the memory
of common hardships, and common trials,
and commoD pruyers and common tears,
let us be brothers forever.
Dead Brothers in Arras.
Two brothers, Mortimer and Emmett
Huffman, sons of D. C. Huffman, of In
dianapolis, Ind., were kilted at Santiago.
The family moved from Lawrenceburg,
lnd., to Indianapolis several years ago,and
at that city a few months since Edna, the
only daughter, committed suicide because
her lover had killed himself after a misun
derstanding with his sweetheart. Latei
Mrs. Huffman ended her life with oarboliu

daughter, and now the sons have lost their
lives on Cuban soil fighting tor the honor

Llqnor and labor.
The Department of Labor at Washington
has been turning Its statistical attention
to the "Economlo Aspects of the Liqaor
Problem," with results more Interesting
than scientifically conclusive. The data
collected have the fault of incompleteness
qs well as vagueness, but the inquiry is.
commendable, and, if persisted in another
year, may yield more definite returns. It
is the purpose of this investigation to learn
how the habit of drinking intoxicants af
fects the worklngman's chances of scouring
employment and what means were con
sidered most effective in deterring men
from this form of indulgence.
Although a schedule of carefully pre
pared questions was sent to over 80,000 em-
? lovers, replies were received from only
025 establishments, representing 1,745,923
employes. But it is noteworthy that only
1613 employers reported that the use of
liquor was not taken into question in en
gaging men. Ail the others made Inquiry
of some kind into the use of liquor by their
employes. The two chief reasons given for
forbidding drinking are to "guard against
accidents" and because of "responsibility
of position." One surprising development
of the inquiry Is that men who work at
night are less adtycted to the liquor habit
than men who work at day. The contrary
impression has prevailed. Another dis
covery is that men who work overtime
are less likely to use stimulants than men
of mor*leisure. The majority of employers
noted that men were prone to drink Im
mediately after receiving their wages.
Apparently, the most frequent method
used to deter employes from drunkenness
is discharge. In very many cases tills is
summary, and the knowledge of this in
evitable punishment is the chief reliance
for prevention. Not a few employers, how
ever, advise "education" as a means to
correct the evil. Many reported that pro
hibition laws only provoked the desire to
drink among their men.
But the significant lesson of these re
turns, incomplete though they are, is that
the use of liquor is universally regarded as
impairing the worklngman's usefulness.
There Is in this fact a temperance lecture
of the most practical and convincing kind.
It is to be hoped that employers will more
generally co-operate with this effort of the
authorities to compile statistics that may
have an in»tructive bearing upon the prob
lem of most effectively restraining the
abuse of labor's greatest enemy.—New York

Last summer a strange scene took place
in a pretty garden not a hundred miles
from London. It was early in the after
noon, and the only tenants of the garden
were the servants, who were arranging re
freshments upon tables on the lawn. They
seemed full of nods and becks, and whis
pers of apparently mysterious import
passed among them. A carriage drives up
to the gate, and two ladies, entering, look
around for the hostess. The servant who
has admitted them goes in search of hi 6
mistress, and in a few moments afterward
a very young and well and beautifully
dressed woman issues from the house, her
face deeply flushed, her eyes half closed
and her gait uncertain. Just at this mo
ment another carriage drives up, a gentle
man and a lady being the occupants. They,
too, enter the garden gate, and advance
toward the house across the lawn. As they
approach the uncertain, swaving figure of
their hostess they look at each other sig
nificantly, and the lady savs in a low voice:
"I was afraid of this. Where <;an Mr. X.
be to allow her to be seen in this state?"
The painful scene was ended by the ar
rival of thehusband, whose look of misery,
as he led his wife on his arm through the
groups of gayly-dressed people into the
house, touched evea the laughters with
is no exaggeration of fact. It is.
unfortunately, a scene from real life, and, I
fear, not an uncommon one. The love of
strong drink appears to be increasing

Mile* Tracked by a War Cheat.
For several days preceding the time
that General Miles finally left for
Cuba there was much speculation
about the headquarters of the army
in the Department building about. the
date of his departure. Inquiries were
made of the General himself, and he
is generally accommodating to men of
the newspaper profession, but these
inquiries were of no avail. Then re
sort was had to General Alger, the
Secretary of War, but he, also, vouch
safed no satisfactory or definite reply.
With this state af affairs it was neo
essary to resort to strategy, and
strategy successfully solved the
problem. It was said by one of the
old and observing employes that on
the day General Miles departed from
Washington a war chest, which is al
ways located near the door that leads
into his own office when he is in town,
would be taken away. This chest—
what it contains is not generally
known—accompanies him on all his
Therefore, for two or three days
many eyes were watching the war
chest, a square box bound with iron
bands and painted a dark gray. At
last, on the movning of the day that
the General really did leave for San
tiago the war chest was not in its ac
customed place. The newspaper men
at the Department took the risk to an
nounce that the General would depart
for Cuba that evening, and it was
printed in the afternoon newspapers,
and sure enough it turned out that
General Miles did follow the war
chest, starting on the journey that
took him to the headquarters tent of
Crow* Chase a Cat.
"Caw! caw! caw!" shrieked a couple
of crows in the "nurseries" near
Chamoumx drive in the West Park
recently. Park guard No. 88, who
happened to be on the drive at the
time, cocked up his ears. "Somt,
thing wrong with those crows," said
he to a cyclist who had stopped near
by to rest; "never heard them caw that
way unless there was something up."
The incessant cawing grew louder and
closer each moment. Suddenly out
from a bunch of small trees dashed a
big black and white tomcat, rnnning
as fast as he could. Two infuriated
crows were hovering him, taking turns
at swooping down npon him and
pecking him viciously with their sharp
beaks. At each attack the cat accel
erated his speed, and, with bristling
tail, simply Hew over the ground. The
crows pounced upon him unmercifully,
until finally, when the chase had al
most reached the two surprised spec
tators, the cat took refuge in a culvert
which runs under the drive at that
point. One of the crows alighted on
the edge of the culvert, and then,
catching sight of the two spectators,
turned and flew back to some tall pines
back of the nurseriea. "Well, what
do you think of that?" exclaimed the
guard. "Did y«u ever see a crow
chase a cat before? Never? Why, n
cat can lick any kind of a bird. That
cat must have been robbing their nest."
