SUNDAY'S DISCOURSE BY THE NOTED
Subject: ••Improvement* In Heaven"—
Heaven llai Improved In Numbers,
Society and Knowledge—A Great Con
volution to Good People.
TEXT: "And I saw a new heaven."—Eev.
The sterotyped heaven does not make
adequate impression upon us. We need
the old story told in the new style in order
tojarouse our appreciation. Ido not sup
pose that we are compelled to the old
phraseology. King James's translators
did unt exhaust all the good and graphic
wordu in the English dictionary. I suppose
it we should take the idea of heaven, and
translate it into mode;n phrase, we would
find that its atmosphere Is n combination of
early June and of the Indian summer in
October—a place combining the advantages
of city and country, the streets standing
for the one, and the twelve manner of
fruits for the other; a place of musical en
tertainment—harpers, pipers, trumpeters,
doxologies; a place of wonderful architec
ture—behold the temple! n place where
there may bo the higher forms of animal
life—the beasts which were on earth beaten,
lash-whipped, and galled andunblanketed,
and worked to death, turned out among
the white horses which the Book of Bevela
tlon describes as being In heaven; n piaoe
of stupendous literature —the books opon;
a place of aristocratic and democratic at
tractiveness—the kings standing for the
one, all nations for the other; all botanical,
pomological, ornithological, arborescent,
worshipful beauty and grandeur.
But my idea now is to speak chiefly of the
improved heaven. People sometimes talk
of heaven as though it were an old city,
finished centuries ago, when I have to tell
you that no city on earth, during the last
fifty year?, lias bad such changes as heaven.
It is not the same place as when Job, and
David, and Paul wrote of It. For hundreds
and hundreds of years it has been going
through peaceful revolution, and year by
year, and month by month, and hour by
hour, and monlent by moment, it is chang
ing, and changing for something better.
Away back there was only one residence in
the universe—the residence of the Al
mighty.' Heaven had not yet been started.
Immensity was the park all around about
this great residence; but God's sympathetic
heart after a while overflowed in other
creations, and there came, all through this
vast country of immensity, inhabited vil
lages, which grew and enlarged until they
joined each other, and became one great
central metropolis of the universe, streetod,
gated, templed, watered, inhabited. One
angel went forth with a reed, wo are told,
and he measured heaven on one side, and
then he went forth and measured heaven
on the other side; and then St. John tried
to take the census of that city, and ho be
eaino so bewildered that he gave it up.
That brings me to the llrst thought of
my theme—that heaven is vastly improved
in numbers. Noting little under this head
about the multitude of adults who have
gone into glory during tho last hundred,
or five hundred, or thousand years, I re
membor there are sixteen hundred millions
of people in the world, and that the vast
majority of people die in infancy. How
many children must have gone into heaven
during the last five hundred or thousand
years. If New York should gather in one
generation a million population, if London
should gather in one generation four mil
lion population, what a vast increase! But
what a mere nothing as compared with the
five hundred million, the two thousand
million, the "multitude that no man can
number," that have gone into that city!
Of course, all this takes for granted that
every child that dies goes as straight into
heaven us ever the light sped from a star:
and that is one reason why heaven will
always be fresh and beuutiful—the great
multitude of children in it. Put live hun
dred million children in a country, it will
be a blessed and lively country.
But add to this, if you will, tile great
multitude of adults who have gone into
glory, and how the census of heaven must
run up! Many years ago a clergyman
stood In a New England pulpit, ana said
that he believed that tho vast majority of
tho race would finally be destroyed, and
that not more than one person out of two
thousand persons would be Anally saved.
There happened to be about two thousand
people in the village where he preached.
Next Sabbath two persons were heard dis
cussing the subject, and wondering which
one of the two thousand people in the
village would finally reach heaven, aud
one thought it would be tho minister, and
tho other thought It would be the old
deacon. Now, I have not much admiration
for a life-boat which will go out ton ship
sinking with two thousand passengers,
und get one off in safety, and let nine
teen hundred and ninety-nine goto the
bottom. Why, heaven must have been a
village when Abel, the first soul from
earth, entered it, ns compared with the
present population of that great city!
Again: I remark that heaven has vastly
Improved in knowledge. Give a man
forty or fifty years to study one science, or
all sciences, with all the advantages of
laboratories aud observatories and philo
sophic apparatus, he will be a marvel of
information. Now, into what intelligence
must heaven mount, angelhood and saint
hood, not after studying for forty or ilfty
yeurs, but for thousands of years—study
ing God und the soul and Immortality and
the universe! How the intelligence of
that world must sweep ou and on, with
eyesight fnrther reaching than telescope,
with power of calculation mightier than
all human mathematics, with powers of
analysis surpassing all chemical labor
atory, with speed swifter than telegraphy!
What must heaven learn, with all these
advantages, in a month, in a year, in a
eentury, in a millennium? The difference
between the highest university on earth
and the smallest class in a primary school
eannot be a greater difference than heaven
as it now is and heaven as it once was.
Do you not suppose that when Doctor
James Simpson went up from tho hospi
tals of Edinburgh into heaven he knew
more than ever the science of health; and
that Joseph Henry, graduating from the
Smithsonian Institution into heaven,
awoke into higher realms of philosophy;
and that Sir Wiliium Hamilton, lifted to
loftier sphere, understood better tho con
struction of the human intellect; and that
John Milton took up higher poetry in the
actual presence of things that on earth ho
bad tried to describe? When the first
saints entered heaven, they must have
studied only the A B C of the full litera
ture of wisdom with which they are now
Again: heaven is vastly improved in its
society. During your memory how many
exquisite spirits have gon#lnto itl If you
should try to make a list of all the genial,
loving, gracious, blessed souls that you
have known, it would be a very long list—
souls that have gone into glory. Now, do
you not suppose they have enriched the so
ciety? Have they not improved heaven?
You tell of what heaven did for them
Have they done nothing for heavenf Take
all the gracious souls that have gone out
of your acquaintanceship, and add to them
all the gracious and beautiful souls that for
live hundred or a thousand years have
gone out of all the cities and all the vil
lages, and all the countries of this earth
into glory, and how the society of heaven
must have been Improved! Suppose Paul,
the apostle, were introduced into our so
cial circle on earth; but heaven has added
all the apostles. Suppose Hannah More
and Charlotte Elizabeth were introduced
into your social circle on earth; but heaven
added all the blessed and the gracious
and the holy women of the past ages. Sup
pose that Bobert M'Cheyne and John Sum
mesfleld should be added to your earthly
oircle; tut heaven has gathered up ail the
faithful and earnest ministry of the past,
there is not a town, or c city, or a village
that has so improved in society In the last
hundred years as heaven has Improved.
Again: I remark that heaven has greatly
Improved in the good-oheer of announced
victories. Where heaven rejoiced over one
soul.it now rejoices over ft hundred or a
thousand. In the olden times, when the
events of human life were scattered over
four or five centuries of longevity, and the
world moved slowly, there were not so
many stirring events to be reported in
heaven; but now, I suppose, 'all the great
events of earth are reported in heaven. If
there Is any truth plainly taught in this
Bible it is that heaven is wrapped up in
sympathy with human history, and we
look at those Inventions of the day—at
telegraphy, at swift communication by
steam, at all these modern improvements
which seem to give one almost omnipres
ence—and we see only the seoular relation:
but spirits before the throue look out and
see the vast and the eternal relation. While
nations rise and fall, while the earth is
shaking with revolution, do you not sup
pose there is arousing intelligence going
up to the throne of God, and that the ques
tion is often asked before the throne,
"What Is the news from that world—that
world that rebelled, but Is coming baok to
its allegiance?" If ministering spirits, ac
cording to the Bible, are sent forth to
minister to those that shall be heirs of
heaven, when they come down to us to
bless us, do they not take the news back?
Do the ships of light that come out of the
celestial harbor into tho earthly harbor,
laden with cargoes of blessing, go baok
unfreighted? Ministering spirits not only,
but our loved ones leaving us, take up the
tidings. Suppose you were In a far city,
and had been there a good while, and you
heard that some one had arrived from
your native place—some ens who had
recently seen your family and friends—
you. would rush up to that man, and you
would ask all about the old folks at home.
And do you not suppose when your child
went up to God, your glorified kindred in
heaven gathered around and asked about
you, to ascertain as to whether you were
getting along well in the struggle of life;
to And out whether you were In any espe
cial peril, that with swift and mighty
wing they might come down to Intercept
your perils? Oh, yes! Heaven Is a
greater place for news than It used to be—
news sounded through the streets, news
ringing from the towers, news heralded
from the palace gate. Glad news! Vic
Now, I say these things about the changes
in heaven, about the new improvements in
heaven, for three stout reasons. First, bo
cause I find that some of you are impa- ,
tient to be gone. You are tired of this
world, and you want to get Into that "rood
land about which you have been tliinKing,
praying, and talking so many years. Now
be patient. I could see why you would want
togo to an art gallery if some of the best 1
pictures were to be taken away this week or
next week; butifsomoono tells you that i
there are other beautiful pictures to come
—other Kensctts, Baphuels, and Bubens;
other mitsterpieoes to bo added to the gal
lery—you would say, "I can afford to
wait. The place is improving ail the
time." Now, I want you to apply the same
principle in this matter of reaching heaven
aud leaving this world. Not ono glory Is
to be subtracted, but many glories added.
Not one angel will be gone, not ono hler- 1
arch gone, not one of your glorified friends
gone. By tho long practicing the musio
will be better, the proeesslou will be ;
longer, the rainbow brighter, the corona
tion grander. Heaven, with magnificent
addenda! Why will you complain when
you are only waiting for something better?
Another reason why I speak in regard to
the changes in heaven, and tho now im
provements in heaven, Is because I th<nk It
will be a consolation to busy and enterpris
ing good people. I see very well that you
have not much tasto for a heaven that was
all done and finished centuries ago. After
you have been active forty or fifty or sixty
years It would be a shock to stop you sud
denly and forever; but here is a progressive
heaven, an ever-accumulative heaven, vast
enterprise on foot there before the throne
of God. Aggressive knowledge, aggressive
goodness, aggressive power, aggressive
grandeur. You will not have to come and
sit down on the banks of the river of life
in everlasting inoccupation. O busy men,
I tell you of a heaven where there is some
thing to do! That is tho meaning of tho
passage, "They rest not day nor night," in
the lazy sense of resting.
I do not think It was superstitious whcu,
one Wednesday night, I stood by a death
bed within a few blocks of the church
where I preached, and on tho same street,
and saw ono of the aged Christians of the
! church going into glory. After I had
! prayed with her I said to her, "We have
all loved you very much, and will always
! cherish your memory in the Christian
; church. You will sco my son before I
see him, und I wish you would give him
our love." She said, "I will, I will;" and
in twenty minutes she was In heaven—
the last words she ever spoke. It was a
swift message to the skies. If you had
your choice between riding in a heavenly
chariot and occupying the graudest palace
iu heaven, and sitting on the throne next
highest to the throne of God, and not see
ing your departed loved ones; and on the
other hand, dwelling In the humblest place
In heaven, without crown or throne, and
' without garland, and without sceptre, yet
I having your loved ones around you, you
would choose the latter. I say these things
because I want you to know It is a domes
tic heaven, and consequently It Is all the
time Improving. Every one that goes up
makes it a brighter place, and the attrac
tions are increasing month by month and
day by day; and heaven, so vastly more of
a heaven, a thousand times more of a
heaven, than It used to .be, will be a better
heaven yet. Oh, I say' this to intensify
I enter heaven one day. It Is almost
empty. I enter the temples of worship, ;
and there are no worshipers. I walk down
the street, and there are no passengers. I
go Into the orchestra, and I find the Instru
ments are suspended In the baronial halls
of heaven, nnd the great organs of eter
nity, with multitudinous banks of keys, are
closed. But I see a shining one at the
gate, ns though he were standing on
guard, and I say, "Sentinel, what does this
mean? I thought heaven was a populous
city. Has there been some great plague
sweeping off the population?" "Have
you not heard the news?" says the sen
tinel. "There is a world burning, there
Is a great conflagration out yonder, and
all heaven has gone out to look at the con
flagration and take the victim out of the :
ruins. This is the day fot which all other
days are made. This is the Judginentl I
This morning all the chariots, and the cav- j
airy, and the mounted Infantry rumbled
and galloped down the sky." After I had
listened to the sentinel, I looked off over j
the battlemonts, and I saw that the fields
of air were bright with a blazing world. I
said, "Yes, yes, this must be the Judg
ment;" and while I stood there I heard the
rumbling of wheels and tho olatteriugof
hoofs, and the roaring of many voices,
and then I saw the coronets and plu >;es ;
and banners, and I saw that all
heaven was coming baok agalu—com
ing to the wall, coming to the gate,
and the multitude that went off in
the morning was augmented by a vast
multitude caught up alive from the earth,
and a vast multitude of the resurrected
bodies of the Christian dead, leaving the
cemeteries and the abbeys and the mauso
leums and the graveyards of the earth
empty. Procession moving In through the
gates. And then I found out that what
was fiery Judgment Day ou earth was
Jubl'ee In Heaven, and I cried, "Door
keepers of heaven, shut the gates; all
heaven has come Inl Doorkeepers, shut
the twelve gates, lest the sorrows and the
woes of earth, like bandits, should some
day oome up and try to plunder the City!"

Tlie Liquor Curse In Alaska.
One of the least fortunate acts of the
United States Congress In regard to Alaska
has been the enaction of a most rigid pro
hibitory law as to alcoholic liquors, says
David Starr Jordan in the Atlantic. This
is an iron-clad statute forbidding the im
portation, sale, or manufacture of intoxi
cants of any sort in Alaska. The primary
reason for this act is the desire to protect
the Indians, Aleuts and Eskimos from a
drug of which they are excessively fond
and which destroys them. But a virtuous
statute may be the worst kind of law, as
was noted long ago by Confucius. This
statute has not checked the flow of liquor
In Alaska, while it has done more than any
other influence to destroy the respect for
law. In general, men who "are not in
Alaska for their health" are hard drinkers,
and liquor they will have. It Is shipped to
Alaska as "Florida water," /'Jamaica gin
ger," "bay rum." Demijohns are placed
n the centre of flour barrels, sugar barrels,
in any package which may contain them.
With all this, there is a vast amount of out
right smuggling which the Treasury De
pa:tment tries in vain to check. All south
eastern Alaska is one vast harbor, with
thousands of densely wooded islands, most
ly uninhabited. Cargoes of liquors can be
safely hidden almost anywhere, to be re
moved piece by piece in smaller boats.
Many such c irgoe3 have been seized and
destroyed, but the risk of capture merely
serves to raise the price of liquor. Onco
on shore tho liquor is safe enough. Up
wards of seventy saloons are running open
ly in Juneau, and perhaps forty in Sitka.
Most of these houses are the lowest of their
kind, because, being outlaws to begin with,
tho ordinary restraints of law and order
have no effect on them.
Cause! of Inebriety in Women.
Inebriety is bad enough In a man, but in
i woman It is even more pitiable, aud, if it
be possible, more far-reaching and more
dreadful in Its results. With women It
would, we think, be safe to say that the
origin of the drink habit lies in perturbed
physical conditions—in fact, that it Is u
disease, ami not a mere moral obliquity, as
many would have us believe. Tho conse
quences of alcoholism in women are not so
quickly evident as In men. In the earlier
stages of inebriety in those casos in which
there is power of volition, a peculiar
shrinking from publicity proteots some
women against the symptoms noted
among men at a like period. Two causes
may be given for tho lapse of women into
Inebriety. First is tho nervous condition
due to lack of nutrition and tho wear and
worry of domestic life and the demands of
society—an exhaustion for which relief Is
mistakenly sought In tho transient aid of
alcohol; secondly, the pain and unrost In
cident to disorders of their sex, for which
solace is sought in the ancesthetic and
paralyzing effects of alcohol. In the first
case the woman who flies to drink must be
unaware or unmindful of the fact that Its
taking Involves a great risk of creating a
morbid condition that often find expres
sion in constant iuebrloty. In the second
case, tho so-called solace, with startling
and sorrowful frequency, ends in conflrmod
alcoholism.—New York Ledger.
Fearful Day of Temptation.
I shall never drink again, but one night
In a New England train, and very 111, I met
a stranger who pitied me and gave me a
quick, powerful drug out of a small vial,
and my pain was gone in a minute or two,
but alcohol was licklug up my very blood
with tongues of flame.
I should have gotten drunk that night it
I could. I thought of everything—of my
two years of clean life; of the meeting I
was going to, vouched for by my friend and
brother, D. L. Moody, whose faith in me —
withdrawn now, I fear—had gone out into
all the world; of the bright, little home in
New York; of Mary and the boys, I tried to
pray, and my lips framed oaths. I reached
up for God, and He was gone, and the
fiercest fiend of hell had me by the throat
and shouted, "Drink, drink, drink!" I said,
"But Mary—but the boys;" it said. "To
Hell with Mary—come on, to the saloon!"
i It was not yet daylight, Sunday morning,
when I stood on the platform at Pawtucket,
alone, I flew from saloon to saloon, they
were shut up, so were tho drug stores; and
all that day, locked in my room at the
hotel, I fought my fight and won it in the
evening, by tho grace of God; and the peo
ple never know that the man who spoke tc
them that night had been in Hell all day.
What would you take In cash to have
that put into your life?— John G. Woolley,
Gladstone on Temperance.
Mr. Gladstone once said, In words whlcli
lave become provarvlal, that the intem
perance of the United Kingdom was the
source of more evils than war, pestilence
and famine; and to this it must be added
that the intemperance that reigns in thai
and other nations docs not come perlodi
sally like war, but year by year remains ir
permanent activity. Its havoc is not spor
adic, but universal, audit is not Intermit
tent, but continuous and incessant in it!

A Father's Story*
From the Evening Crescent, Appleton, Wis.
A remarkable oure from a disease which:
hatpgenerally wrecked the lives of children,
and left them in a condition to which death
Itself would be preferred, has attraoted a
Sreat amount of attention among the rosl
enta of the west end of Appleton.
The case is that of little Willard Creech,
son of Riobard D. Creech, a well known
employe of one of the large paper mills in
the Fox River Valley. The lad was attacked
by spinal disease and his parents had given
up all hope of his ever being well again
when, as by a miracle, he was healed and Is
now in school as happy as any of his mates.
Mr. Creech, the father of the boy, who,
resides at 1062 Second Street, Appleton,
Wisconsin, told the following story:
He Goes to School.
"Our boy was absolutely helpless. His
lower limbs were paralyzed, and when wo
used electricity he could not feel It below
his hips. Finally we lot the doctor go as
he did not seem to help our son and we
nearly gave up hope. Finally my mother
who lives In Canada wrote advising the use
of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for Pale Peo
ple and I bought some.
"This was when our boy had been on tho
stretcher for an entire year and helpless for
nine months. In six weeks after taking
the pills we noted signs of vitality in
his legs, and In four months he was able to
"It is two years since ho took the first of
the pills and he is at school now just as
happy and well ai any of tho other chil
dren. It was nothing elso in the world
that Baved the boy than Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills for Palo People."
An Electric Light for Divers.
Tlio submarine arc light has been
invented, which will be of great value
in diving and wrecking operations.
Such a light would have been wel
comed by the naval officers charged
with investigating the causes of the
wreck of tho Maine. The apparatus
consists of a containing case made of
glass and nietal, inside of which is the
lamp, which receives the current
through a double conductor water
proof cable. The light is lowered into
the water and can be moved by the
diver so as to spread the light equally
on all sides, tlius affording a concen
trated beam on the hole in a ship's
SJIn conjunction with this powerful
light the camera plays an important
part in reproducing a perfectly truth
ful likeness of what actually exists at
depths where the professional diver or
engineer may not care to go. Such a
record serves to insure a perfect un
derstanding between the diver and
those in charge of a work.
There are many practical uses to
which this invention may be put.
Among the possibilities mentioned are
examining and cleaning the bottoms
of merchaut and battle ships, attach
ing hoisting chains to guns and other
movable parts on sunken vessels, plac
ing and recovering submarine mines,
constructing bridge piers, coffer dams
and in photography. New York
A ISoy'a Musical Niceties.
These are some of the answers to
questions propounded to a large boy
in a school not far from Troy: Musi
cal tones differ because some are nicer
than others. Pitch is the length of
a keyboard of an organ. An interval
in music is the distance on the key
board from one piano to the next.
