Hiiooki.yn, X. y .May 21. The Rev. Dc
Wltt Tiduiage, D. I)., to-day preached the sec
ond of his scries or sermons on the great labor
discussion, the subject Wing: "How Em
plovers Ought to Treat Kmployo. Tho
opening1 In mil was:
Glory to God on high,
Let heaven and earth reply.
Dr. Tuhnugo chose two texts, the tlrst from
(illations, v., 15: "If ye bile and devour ono
nnother, take heed tliatje be not consumed
one of another;" ami Philinnlnns. II.. 4:
'bonk not every man on his own things, but
every man also on the things of others." Fol
low lug Is the sermon In full:
The labor agitation will pooh quiet; the
mill again open, the railroads resume their
trallle; our national prosperity again start.
Of courc the damage done by tho strikes can
not be immediately repaired. Wages will not
be so high a- they were. Spasmodically thev
ma) be higher, but they will diop lower.
MUIKIW l.SJl'lli: MIIOK .MOST.
Strikes, whether right or wrong, always In
jure laborers more than capitalists. You will
see this in (lie starvation of next winter, boy
cotting ami violence and murder never pay.

never bles-ed murder. The worst use you can

and all tlic bricks and timber and stones will
just fall back mi the bare hands of American
labor. The worst enemies of tho worMiiir
classes In the United States and Ireland are
their demented coailfntors. Assassliintlim
the assassination of Lord Frederick Cavendish
and .Mr. Burke in Plieienlx park, Dublin, Ire

Ireland, only turned a way from that nil Icieil

First of all, then, pav as large wages as art
rcasouauie aim as jour nusuiess will afford.
Not necessarily what others pay, eertalnl) not
what una hired help say you' must par, for
that is tyranny on the part of labor unbeara
ble. The right of a laborer to tell his em
ployer what he must pay Implies the right of
an employer to compel a man Into a service
whether lie will or not, aud either of thoe
ideas Is despicable. When any emplocr al
lows a laborer to say what he liuist do or have
his business ruined', and tho employer submits
to It, he does everv business man' In the I'nl.
ted States a wrong and yields to a principle
which, carried out, would dissolve society.
Look over your atfalrs and put yourselves In
Imagination In your laborer's pla'ee, and then
pay him what before God and our on u con
science you think von ought to pay him.
"God hles yous'" are well lu their place, but
they do not bur coal nor pay house rent nor
get shoes for the children. At the same time
you, the employer, ought to remember
through what strait and strains vnu got the
fortune by which you built your store or run
the factory. You are to remember that you
take all the risks and the emphne takes nolle,
or scarcely any. You aie to remember that
there may be reverses lu fortune, and that
some new style of machinery mar make our
machinery Miluelcss, or some new' style of' tar
iff set your business back nopelcssfv anil for
ever. You must take all that into considera
tion, and then pay what Is reasonable.
l'ltOMlTNi:SS l'AYIXO OKMIt III. II.
Do not lie too ready to cut dow n wages. As
far as possible pay' all, and pay promptly.
There Is a great deal of Hible teaching (in
this subject. Malechl: "1 will bo a swift
witness against all sorcerers, and against all
adulterers, aud against tho?u who oppiess the
hireling in his wages." Leviticus: "Thou
shalt not keep the wages of tho hireling all
night unto the morning." ColosIans: "Mas
ters, give unto vour servants that which is
lust and coual; liuovvlng thai ye also liavo a
Muster in heaven." So you see it Is not a
question between you aiul your emploo so
much as it is n question lielw ecu you' and
Do not say to your employes: "Now, If you
don't like tills 'place get another.'' when Sou
know they can not get another. As far as nos-
slble once a year isit at their homes xour
clerks and your workmen. That Is the "only
way you can become acquainted with their
wants. You will by such process tlud out that
there Is a blind pa'rent or a sick sister being
supported. You w III llud some of your young
men in rooms without any lire in winter, and
In summer sweltering In" ill-ventilated apart
luen .s. You will find how- much depends on
the wages you pay or withhold. On Saturday
morning when y ou come into your counting
room and draw the check which will bring tho
money for the wages or the salaries, vim will
have a thrill of satisfaction lu knowing It Is
not only the money you give to the young man,
but the relief of tlio dire necessities which
stand back of him,
orAiiiiiNo tiii: i:.mpi.ovi:'s ixtkuiists.
Moreover, it Is your dut as employer, as far
as possible, to mould the welfare of the cm.
plow. You ought to advise him about Invest
ments, about life insurance, about saWugs
banks. You ought to give him the benefit of
your experience. There are hiindieds and
thousands of employers In this country and
England, I am glad to say, who are settling In
the very best jio-slhle way the destiny of their
employes. Such men as Marshall of Leeds,
Lister of Hradford, Akroydof Hallllax and
men so near at home It might offend their
modesty If I mentioned their names. These
men have built reading rooms, libraries, con
cert hulls, afforded croquet lawns, cricket
ground, gviiiaiiHluius, choral societies for
their employes and thev have not merely paid
the contentment and the" thrift and tho
i nun- wages on Miiuruiiv nigiii. nut lliroiiLMi
gooo morals 01 tiieir einplores, tbev are pay
lug wages from generation to genefatlou for
ever. Again, I counsel all employers to look well
after the physical health of their subordinates.
Vou are expected to understand better than
they all tliee oiiestlons of veutlllatioii and
sunshine mid all the laws of hygiene. There
are stores and banking houses and factories
and newspaper establishments where the at
mosphere is death. Vour employes may al
ways appreciate )our work, 11s that stylo of
kindness was not appreciated lu the Instance
mentioned by Charles Keade, where in a greut
factory a fan was provided for the blowlnir
nwav of the dust of metal and stone, the dust
aiisfsiug from the machinery, aud some of the
u 1 Hi. men refused to put tills great fan lu mo
tion. 'Ihey seemed to pref.-r to Inhale the
tilings the poisonous tilings into their lungs.
Hut in the vait majority of cases your em
ployes will appreciate every kindness In thut
i,.nwi:ci:s8Auv fatiolf. ciiuf.u
Do not put 011 them any unnecessary fatigue.
I never could understand why the drivers 011
our city ears must stand all day when they
might just as well sit down and drive. It
seems to me most unrighteous that so many of
the female clerks in our stores should be com
pelled to stand nil day, and through those
hours when there are but few or no customers.
These people have aches and annoyance ami
weariness enough without putting iiion them
additional fatigue. Unless those female
clerks must go 1111 nud down on the business
of tho store, let tliein sit down. At the end of
the year you will llud that thev have sold w
many goods and niiide us line bargains - yea,
hotter; for one clerk w ith n clear hralu and
rested body and radiance will sell more goods
than two clerks with health bedraggled.
Then I would have yuil cany out this mili
tary idea mid put Into as few hours as ihissI
ble the work of the day. rkune time ugo -whetherit
has been changed I know not -there
were 1,000 grocery clerks lu ilrooklyu
who went to business at 0 o'clock In the morn,
ing and continued until 10 o'clock ut night.
Now, that Is Inhuman.
It seems to me thut all the inercli'iuU In ill
ihiKirtiiieiits ought, by simultaneous move
mcut, to come out In behalf of the early clou
Ing theory, Theso louug men oi;ght to hare
1111 oiKirlunlty of going to the Mercantile li
brary, to the reading rooms, to the concert
hull, to the gymnasium, to the church. They

he gathered Ids employes "together ecrr morn

been a partner In a small retail shop in a small

a church aud u chaiicl built and supported by
himself the church for those who preferred
the i:plseopal service, and the chapel for those
who preferred the Methodist service. At the
opening of one of his factories he gave a greut
dinner, nnd there were :i,.r00 people present,
and in his lifter dinner speech he said to those
people gathered: "I can not look around me
aud see this vast assemblage, of friends ond

greatly honored by the presence of the noble
man at my side, and I am especially
delighted at tho presence of mr woik

population that will enjoy the b.-aulles of
this neighboihood a imputation of well-paid,
contented, happy operatives. I have given
Instructions to my architects that nothing is
to be spared to render the dwellings of the
operatives u pattern to the country, and If m v

see contentment, satisfaction uud hnppliiess

how cold uud how tired they were, uud though
'.hey may be sixty or seventy years of uge, they
iiliow just how il boy feels between ten nud

Prussia, when Frederick the Great, In ajocosa

sacrament of last Friday digest!"

The venerable old warrior arose and said:
"For your majesty I have risked my life many

1 would bo willing auv time to die, hut you do
wrong when you insult the Christian religion.
You will forgive me if 1, your old military ser

Lord and my suvlour." Frederick, tho Great
leaped to his feet nnd he put out his baud and
ho said: "Hnppr .lethen! Forgive me, for

O, there are manr being scollcd nt for their

One summer, in California, a gentleman who
hail Just removed from the Sandwich Islands,
told me this Incident. Ho mi Id one of tho
Sandwich Islands Is devoted to lepers. Pcopio
getting sick of tho leprosy on the other IslamU
nre sent to Hint isle of lepers. They never
come olf. They nre m different s'ngc.s of dls
ense, but nil who die on thut island'dlo of lep
rosy. On one of the healthy Islands there wai
u physician who always wore his hand gloved,
and It was often discussed why he alwuts had
a glove on that hand under nil circumstances.
a riiYsici.tx'sj si:i.f .N.veititn:.
Ono day this physician came to tho city
authorities, and lie withdrew his glove, and
he said to the olllccrs of the law. "You see on
thut hand a spot of the leprosy and that I am
doomed to die. I might hlde'thls for u little
while uud keep uwuv from the Isle of lepers:
hut I um a phtsleiun, uud l can go on that
Island and administer to the sufferings of
those who ure further gone In the disease, nnd
I should like to go now. It would ho selfish iu'
me to btuy n ih Id these luxurious surround
ings, when I might bo of so much help to tho
wretched. Send me to the Me of tho lepers."
They, seeing the spot of leprosy, of course
tisik tho man into custody. He bade farewell
to his family nud his friends. It was au
agonizing farewell. Ho could never sec them
nguln. lie was taken to tho Isle of lepers,
and there wrought among the sick until pros
trated by his own death, which nt lust cuine.
Oh ! that was magnlllcent self denial, inngnf
llcent sncrlllce, onlv surpassed by that of llliii
who exiled Himself from the hearth of heaven
to this leprous island of a world, Hint Ho
might physician our wounds nud weep our
griefs and die oiirdeuths, turning the isle of a.
leprous world Into a great blooming paradis
ical garden. Whether employer or employe,
let us catch that spirit.
A Spider That lilkctl .Music,
Wliotltor tho beo hours tho ilrttm

inaitor of (iottl)t, nays u writer iu The,
Jiuticiilor, at loasl, I novor heard of a
hco Hint was spellbound at (lie sound of
mimic. Jt is said that Sir .John Lub
liook, after pluying; his, violin before his
lines, wiis not ttiilo to induce them (o
waltz, hunt time, or try tho key of "ono
sharp" on him. Whether Sir .John ov
er tried anything of this kind I am not
prepared lo say; nt any rale, an indif
ferent behavior on tho part of the bee.T
is not to bo wondered tit. In books oC
natural history wo road that spiders,
however, scorn to exhibit signs of keon
enjoyment at tho sound of tho guitar o
other instruments. When I nrst aav
this statement it was too much for me
to believe; but chancing ono evening to
play my accordion some years ago in
tiie factory, ono of my friends who wai
with mo ejaculated till at once: "Oh,
look at that monstrous spider!" As I
continued to play tho insect advanced
toward me. for reasons that I did not
then suspect, and before I was awaro of
it was perched upon my kuoe, whoro
on rested my accordion, l'eoling a
eold chill creep down my back as I dis
covered this intimate " friendship, I
shook tito ugly "basic" upon tho lloor,
stamping my feet as I did so. Tho spi
der mndo good his retreat and disap
peared under a pile of hoards. When
quiet prevailed, uud I had resumed my
playing, lo and belioid ! our good friend
crept cautiously out as buforo. I will
not say that he walUcd, but he ditl act
us though ho wore spellbound, i then
recollected what I had read, aud nat
urally concluded that it was the music
that delighted his worship. If l cetuedi
playing, tho spider crept away, aud
whenever I resinned ho would reappear.
I mado repeated trials, with the saiue
rcatilhs, and ou separate evenings, (00.
On one or two occasion. I called him
