Church of God and in All Styles ol
lteformatory Work What 1* Needed
Most Is a Battle Cry.
TKTT: "Let Ood arise, let His enemies
ie scattered."—Psalms lxvlii., 1.
A procession was formed to carry the
vrk, or sacred box, which, though only
three feet nine inches in height and depth,
Iras the symbol of Ood's presence. As the
'eaders of the procession lifed this orna
mented and brilliant box by two golden
|>oles run through four golden rings, and
jtarted for Mount Zion, all the people
*hanted the battle hymn of my text, "Let
Sod arli'.e, let His enemies be scattered."
The Cameronlans of Scotland, outraged
by James 1., who forced upon them relig
ious forms that were offensive, and by the
lerrible persecution of Drummond, Daiziel
4nd Turner, and by the oppressive laws of
Charles I.and Charles 11., were driven to
proclaim war against tyrants, and went
forth to fight for religious liberty; and the
mountain heather became red with car
nage, and nt Doth well Brldgo and Aird's
Moss and Drumclog the battle hymn and
the battle shout of those glorious old
Scotchmen was the text I have chosen:
''Let Ood arise, let His enemies be scat
What a whirlwind of power was Oliver
Cromwell, and how with his soldiers,
named the "Ironsides," he went from vic
tory to victoryl Opposing enemies melted
us he looked at them, lie dismissed Parlia
ment as easily as a schoolmaster a school.
He pointed his finger at Berkeley Castle,
ana it was taken. He ordered Sir Ralph
Hopton, the general, to dismount, and he
dismounted. See Cromwell marching on
With his army, and hear the battle-cry of
"Ironsides," loud as a storm and solemn as
a death-knell, standards reeling before it,
and cavalry horses going back on their
haunches, und armies flyiug at Marston
Moor, at Winceby Field, at Naseby, at
Brldgowttter and Dartmouth—"Let God
arise, let His enemies be scattered!"
So you see my toxt is not like a compli
mentary and tasselled sword that you
sometimes see hung up in a parlor, a
sword that wa? never in battle, and only
to be used on general training day, but
more like some weapon carefully hung up
in your home, telling its story of battles,
lor my text hangs in the Scripture armory,
telling of the holy wnrs of three thousand
years iu which it has been carried, but
still as keen and mighty us when David
first unsheathed it. It seems to me that in
the Church of God, and in all styles of re
formatory work, what wo most need is
now a battle-cry. We raise our little stan
dard, and put on it the name of some man
who only a few years ago began to live
und in a few years will cease to live. We
go into conquest against the armies of
iniquity, depending too much on human
agencies. We use for a battlo-cry the nnme
of some brave Christian reformer, but after
awhile that reformer dies, or gets old, or
loses his courage, and then we take an
other battle-cry, and this time perhaps wo
put the name of someone who betrays the
cause and sells out to the euemy. What
we want for a battlo-cry is the name of
eome leader who will never betray us, and
will never surrender, aud will never die.
All respeot have I for brave men and
women, but if we are to get the victory all
along the line we must take the hint of the
Gideonites, who wiped out the Bedouin
Arabs, commonly called Midianites. These
Gideonites had a glorious leader in Gideon,
but what was the battle-cry with which
they flung their enemies into the worst de
feat into which any army was ever tumbled?
It wus "The sword of the Lord and of
Gideon." Put God first, whoever you put
second. If the ariny of the American revo
lution is to free America, it must bo "The
•word of the Lord and of Washington." If
the Germans want to win the day at Sedan,
it must be "The sword of the Lord and
Von Moltke." Waterloo was won for the
English, because not only tho armed men
nt the front, but the worshipers in the
cathedrals at the rear, were crying "The
eword of the Lord and of Wellington."
The Methodists have gono in triumph
across nation after nation with the cry,
"Tho sword of the Lord and of Wesley."
The Presbyterians have gono from victory
to victory with the cry, "The sword of the
Lord and of John Knox." The Baptists have
conquered millions after millions for
Christ with the cry, "The sword of the
Lord and of Judson." The American
Episcopalians have won their mighty way
with the cry, "The sword of the Lord and
of Bishop M'llvaine." The victory is to
those who put Ood first. But as we want
a battle-cry suited to all sects of religion
ists, and to all lands I nominate as the
battle-cry of Christendom in the approach
ing Armageddon the words of my text,
sounded before the ark as it was carried to
Mount Zion: "Let God arise, let His
enemies be scattered."
As far as our Unite mind can judge, it
seems about time for God to rise. Does it
not seem to you that the abominations of
this earth have gone far enough? Was
there ever a time when sin was so dellant?
Was there ever before so many flsta lifted
toward God telling Him to come on if He
dare? Look at tho blasphemy abroad!
What towering profanity! Would It be
possible for anyone to calculate the num
bers of times that the name of the Almighty
God and of Jesus Christ are every day
taken irreverently on the lips? Profane
swearing is as much forbidden by the law
as theft, or arson, or murder, yet who
executes it? Profanity is worse than theft,
or arson, or murder, for these crimes are
attacks on humanity—that is an attack on
This country is pre-eminent for blas
phemy. A man traveling in Kussla was sup
posed to be a clergyman. "Why do'you take
me to be a clergyman?" said the man. "Oh,"
said the Russian, "all other Americans
swear." The crime is multiplying in Inten
sity. God very often shows what He thinks
of it, but for the most part the fatality is
husliad up. Among the Adirondacks I met
the funeral procession of a man who two
days before had fallen under a flash of
lightning, whilo boasting, after a Sunday
of work in the fields, that he had cheated
God out of one day anyhow, and the man
who worked with him on the same Sabbath
Is still living, but a helpless Invalid, under
the same flash.
Years ago, in a Pittsburg prison, two men
were talking about the Bible nnd Christi
anity, and one of them, Thompson by name,
applied to Jesus Christ a very low and vil
lainous epithet, and, as he was uttering It,
he fell. A physian was called, but no help
could be given. After a day lying with
distended pupils and palsied tongue, he
passed out of this world. In a cemetery in
Sullivanl County In New York State are
eight headstones in a line and all alike, and
these are the facts: In 1861 diphtheria ragod
in the village and a physician was remark
ably successful iu curing his patients. So
confident did he become that he boasted
that no case of diphtheria could stand be
fore him, and Anally defied Almighty God
to produce a case of diphtheria ftthat he
could not cure. His youngest child soon
after took the disease and died, and one
child after another, until all the eight had
died of diphtheria. The blasDhemer chal
lenged Almighty Gad, and God accepted
the challenge. Do not think that because
God has boen silent in your case, O pro
fane swearer! that He is dead. Is there
nothing now in the peculiar leelingof your
tongue, or nothlngin the numbness of your
brain, thut.indtcutes that,Ood|may come to
avenge your blasphemies, or is already
avenging thom? But these cases X have
noticed. I believe, are only a few case.s
where there are hundreds. Families keep
them quiet to|avoid tho horrible
Fhysiciuns suppress them through profes
sional confidence. It is a very, veiy long
roll that contains the names of those who
iled with blaapheralef on their lips.
Still the crime rolls on, up through par-
Lan, up through ehandqllers with lights all
ablaze, and through pictured corridor* of
club-rooms, out through busy exchanges,
where oath meets oath, and down through
all the haunts of sin, mingling with the
rattling dice and eraokllng billiard-balls,
and the laughter of her who hath forgotten
the covenant of her God; and round the
city, and round the continent, and round
the earth a seething, boiling surge flings
its hot spray Into the face of a long-suffer
ing God. And the ship-captain curses his
crew, and the master-builder his men, and
the hack-driver his horse; and the traveler
the stone that braises his foot, or the mud
that soils his shoes, or the defective time
piece tnat gets him too late to the rail train.
I arraign profane swearing and blasphemy,
two names for the same thing, as being one
of the gigantic crimes of this land, and for
its extirpation it does seem as If It were
about time for God to arise.
Then look for a moment at the evil of
drunkenness. Whether you live In Wash
ington, or New York, or Chicago, or Cin
cinnati, or Savannah, or Boston, or in any
of the cities of this land, count up the sa
loons on that street as compared with the
saloons Ave years ago, and see they are
growing far out of proportion to the In
crease of the population. You people who
are so precise and particular lest there
should be some Imprudence and rashness
in attacking the rum traffic will have your
son some night pitched into your front
door dead drunk, or your daughter will
come home with her children because her
husband has, by strong drink, been turned
into a demoniac. The drink has despoiled
whole streets of good homos in all our
cities. Fath«rs, brothers, sons on the
funeral pyre of strong drlnkl Fasten
tighter the victims! Stir up the flames!
Pile on the corpses! More men, women and
children for the sacrifice! Let us have
whole generations on Ore of evil habit, and
at the sound of the cornet, flute, harp,sack
but, psaltery, and dulcimer let all the peo
ple fall down and worship King Aloohol, or
you shall be cast into the fiery furnace un
der some political platform!
I Indict this evil as the regicide, the
fratricide, the patricide, the matricide, the
uxoricide of the century. Yet under what
Innocent and delusive and mirthful names
alcoholism deceives the people! It is a
"cordial." It is "bitters." It is au "eye
opener." It is an "appetizer." It is a
"digester." It Is an "invigorator." It is
a "settler." It is a "night-cap." Why
don't they put on the right labels—"Es
sence of Perdition," "Conscience Btupe
fler," "Five Drachms of Heart-ache,"
"Tears of Orphanage," "Blood of Souls,"
"Scabs of an Eternal Leprosy," "Venom of
the Worm that Never Dies?" Only once in
a while Is there anything In tbr> title of liq
uors to even hint their atrocity, as in the
case of "sour mash." That I see adver
tised all over. It Is an honest name, and
anyone can understand it. "Sour mash!"
That lu, it makes a man's disposition sour,
and his associations sour and his prospects
sour; and then it Is good to mash his body,
and mash his soul, and mash his business,
and mash his family. "Sour mash!" One
honest name at last for an intoxicant! But
through lying labels of many of the
apothecaries' shops, good people, who aro
only a little under tone in health, and
wanting some lnvlgoratlon, have unwit
tingly got on their tongue the fangs of this
cobra, that stings to death so large a ratio
of the human race.
Others are ruined by tho common and
all-destruotive habit of treating customers.
And it Is a treat on their coming to town,
and a treat while the bargaining progresses,
and a treat when the purchase is made,
and a treat as he leaves town. Others, to
drown their troubles, submerge themselves
with this worse trouble. Oh, the world is
battered and bruised and blasted with this
growing evil! It Is more and more en
trenched and fortified. They have millions
of dollars subscribed to marshal and ad
vance tho alcoholic forces. They nominate,
and elect, and govern the vast majority of
the officeholders of this country. On their
side they have enltsted the mightiest
political power of the centuries. And be
hind them stand all the myrmidons of the
nether world, Satanic, Apollyonio and
Diabolie. It Is beyond all human effort to
overthrow this Bastlle of decanters or
capture this Gibraltar of rum jugs. And
while I approve of all human agencies of
reform, I would utterly despair if we had
nothing else. But what cheers me Is that
our best troops are yet to come. Our chief
artillery Is in reserve. Our greatest com
mander has not yet fully taken tho field.
If all Hell is on their side, all Heaven is on
our side. Now "Let God arise, and let
His enemies be scattered."
Then look at the impurities of these
great-cities. Ever and anon there are In
the newspapers explosions of social Ufa
that make the story of Sodom quite re
spectable; "for such things," Christ says,
"were more tolerable for Sodom and Go
morrah" than for the Chorazlns and Beth'-
saidas of greater light. It is no unusual
thing in our cities to see men In high po
sitions with two or three families, or re
fined ladies willing solemnly to marry tho
very swine of society, If they be wealthy.
The Bible all aflame with denunciation
against an impure life, but many of the
American ministry uttering not one point
blank word against this iniquity lest some
old libertine throw up his church pew.
Machinery organized In all the cities of the
United States and Canada by which to put
yearly in the grinding-mlll of this Iniquity
thousands of the unsuspecting of the
country farm-houses, one procuress con
fessing In the court that she had supplied
the infernal market with one hundred and
fifty victims In six months. Ohl for five
hundred newspapers in America to swing
open the door of this lazar-house of social
corruption! Exposure must come before
While the city van carries the scum of this
sin from the prison to the police court
morning by morning, it Is full time, if we
do not want high American life to become
like that of the court of Louis XV., to put
millionaire Lotharios and tho Pompadours
of your brown-stone palaces into a van of
popular indignation, and drivethem out of
respectable associations. What prospect
of social purification can there bo, as long
ns at summer watering places It is usual to
see a young woman of excellent rearing
stand and simper and glgglo and roll up
her eyes sideways before one of those first
class satyrs of rashlonablo life, and on the
ballroom floor join him in the dance, the
maternal chaperon meanwhile beaming
from the window on the scene? Matches
are made In Heaven, they say. Not such
matches; for the brimstone indicates the
Ihe evil is overshadowing all our cities.
By some these Immoralties aro oalled pec
cadilloes, gallantries, eocentrlcitles, and
are relegated to the realms of jocularity,
and I few. efforts are being made against
them. God bIeES the "White Cross" move
ment, as it Is called—au organization mak
ing a mighty assault on this evil! God for
ward the tract societies of the landl God
help the parents In the great work they are
doing, In trying to start their children with
pure principles! God help all legislators
in tholr attempt to prohibit this crime!
But is this all? Then It Is only a question
of time when the last vestigo of purity and
home will vanish out of sight. Human
nrms, human pens, human voices, human
talents are not sufficient. I begin to look
up. I listen for artillery rumbling down
the sapphire boulevards of Heaven. 1
watch to seo if in the morning light there
bo not the flash of descending solmitars.
Oh, for Godl Does It not seem time for His
appearance? Is It not time tor all lands to
cry out: "Let God arise, and let His en
emies be scattered?"

The Spread of Sobriety.
While the prohibitionists are busy in de
fending such statutory coercion as they
have been able to bring to bear upon theli
fellow citizens, and in demanding furthei
enactments of the same kind from usually
obdurate legislatures, the cause of temper
ance, says the New York Times, is making
but almost unnoticed advances along en
tirely different lines. It is the business
man that is-waging against "rum" tho roal
campaign, not fierce, not noisy, not emo
tional, but determined. The business man
iloes not waste much lime In denouncing
intoxicants, and none in threatening those
who Indulge in them with prison; he simply
jays, "If you drink you can not work for
'ne." This ultimatum has now been formu
lated by most of the railways, other cor
porations are repeating it one after another,
and private employers, commercial and
professional, aro fast joining in enforce
ment of this great boycott against drunk
ards. The effects of tne movement are to
be seen in every line of industry. Now.
whatever may bo said about other" sorts of
prohibition, this sort certainly does pro
hibit. And it is worth noting that the
New York and Queens County Electric
Railroad has just forbidden Its motorinen
sven to live in buildings whore liquor is
*old. This noes far beyond any compulsion
aver attempted by the laws of Maine or
lowa, and vet it excites no complaints that
sven the greatest sticklers for "personal
liberty" would think of heeding.
Sale of Beer at Immigrant Stations.
It is encouraging to read the report of
the Government committee appointed to
consider the advisability of doini; away
with the sale of beer at Immigrant stations.
The committee is emphatic in favor of
abolition. Testimony is quoted to the ef
fect that it is a common sight for young
Immigrants to be very much the worse for
liquor on the afternoon of tho morning on
which the.v landed, though they had not
been out of the immigrant station. The
parties having tho monopoly of the sale of
provisions at the Barge Office, New York
City, it is said, in spite of the promises
which they have mado again and again,
are selling no tea, coffee or milk, though
women and children are kept thero for
hours. The sale of beer is the profitable
traffic, and nothing but beer is to be hud.
Every prominent official at the New York
Harge Office agrees that "It would be far
better" if this sale were stopped. I)r. Ben
ner, the Chief Commissioner, ajGermuu and
uot a total abstainer, declares that all tho
trouble he had with his employes there
arises from liquor. Mr. McSweeny, the
Assistant Commissioner, says that If he
had his way, not a drop more would bo
jold. The testimony of the missionaries at
work there is of course strongly on the
tana side.—Christian Work.
How Liquor Curses Childhood.
"In the winter of 1871, at the request of
•he late Earl of Shaftosburv, I carefully in
vestigated my lists of rescued children. I
'.nbulutod in various columns the various
:raceable causes, near or more remote,
which led to their becoming candidates for
'.he homes, and the astonishing fact
smerged that no less than elghty-flve per
sent, of tho children who were admitted
■o the homes under my care owed their so
jlal ruin to the drinking habits of theli
parents, or grandparents, or other rela
tives. .. .1 would not now hesitate to af

Alcohol and the Death Rate.
An official inquiry into the comparatively
larger increase in the Tartar population of
the city and government of Kazan has. ac
cording to the Kamsko Volshkl Krai,
orought out somo remarkable facts as to
the effect of alcoholic indulgence on tho
death rate. The Kazan Tartars, number
ing about 040,000. haven ra|e of mortality
of only 21 in 1000, while tho mortality
among the Russians Is 40 In 1000. The
general conditions among orthodox Rus
sians and Mohammedan Tartars are prac
tically tho same, except in so far as per
sonal habits nre concerned. The medical
investigation leaves no room for doubt that
the lesser mortality of the Mohammedan
Tartars is directly due to their abstinence
from spirituous liquors, in which the Rus
sians indulge freoiy.—Medical Itocord.

lightning on the Vithlnitan Monument
One of the best evidences of th«
»alue of lightning rods up to date ha. :
been afforded by the Washington
Monument. It is capped by a small
four-side pyramid of aluminum, which
metal, so cheap to-day, was verj
costly at the time of the building ol
the greatest pyramid the world hat
ever known. This aluminum tip is
connected with the ground by foui
copper rods which go down deep intc
the earth. On April 5, 1885, five im
mense bolts of electricity were seen tc
Hash between the monument and «
thundercloud overhanging in the
sourse of twenty minues. In othei
ivords the monument was struck
fiercely five times, but it suffered nc
damage whatever. On June 15 of th«
same year a more tremendous ass&ult
was made upon the monument from
the heavens, and the result was a
fracture of one of the topmost stones.
The crack still remains to show what
nature can do in the way of an elec
trical shock, but the slightness of the
damage is evidence of man's power tc
protect himself from such attacks.
The obelisk is ideally located for at
traeting electrical assaults from the
skies, and yet, while many times hit,
it has suffered only once, and thai
time to a trilling extent. —Boston

A curious experiment has recently
been tried in Berlin, Germany, to dis
cover how much work the military
shoemaker could do in case of war. A
kind of general rehearsal was held, in
which 1200 shoemakers were bidden,
and they were installed in the work
shops of the First Artillery Regiment.
The trial lasted for a mouth, without
a moment off. The shoemakers were
divided into two bodies, one for day
work and the other for night work.
They had in attendance forty workmen
ready to repair the machines in cast
of any temporary breakdown. During
the four weeks the 1200 shoemakers
produced, by working day and nighl

" DEAR MRS. PIHSHAM: —I feel it my duty to let you
know of the great benefit your remedies have been to
me. I suffered for over a year with inflammation of
the ovaries. I had doctored, but no medicine did me
any good. Was at a sanatorium for two weeks. The
doctor thought an operation necessary, but 1 made up
my mind to give your medicine a trial before submit
ting to that. I was also troubled with
leucorrhoea, painful menstruation, diz-
to or have
taken several bot
ties Lydia E. Pinkham's
Vegetable Compound and
Blood Purifier, and am
now in good health. I will always give your medicin3 the highest praise."
