tywc'ii' to The Kansas City Titms., N. Y., Oct. ;U. The services at
the lirookljn taheniaclo arc attended by large
numbers of meichanls nnd business men from
all parts of this country and from foreign
lands, and the following sermon, preached by
Rev. T. OeWittTidmage, 1). 1)., this morning,
was timely. He selected for the opening
hymn and service that beginning:
"Must.Jesm lienrtlio crow alono
Ami all lliu world K free?"
The text was Romans, xll., 11 : "Not sloth
ful In business; fervent hi spirit; serving the
Link" nnd Dr. Tuhnage spoke as follows:
Industry, devotediuss, Christian services are
all recommended In this one short text.

There Is no war between religion and busi
ness, between bibles nnd ledgers, between
churches mid counting houses. On the con
tray, religion nccelerutcs business, sharpens
men's wits, sweetens acerbity of disposition,
flllpis tho blood ot phleginntles nnd throws
more velocity Into all the wheel- of hard work.
To the Judgment it gives more skillful balanc
ing; to the will more strength; to industry
more muscle; to enthusiasm a more concen
trated fire. You cannot show mo a man w hose
business prospects have in nny wise bceu de
f polled by his religion.
The Industrial classes are divided into three
groups producers, manufacturers, traders.
Vroduccrs, such as fanners and miners. Man
ufacturers, such as take the emu and change
It Into food, or the wool nnd flax and chnugo
thcin luto nppaiel. Traders, who make a proilt
out of the transfer and exchange of that which
is produced or manufactured. Now, n business
man may belong to one of these classes, or he
may belong to nil of them. Whatever be your
avocation, If you plan, calculate, bargain; If
into your life there come annoyances, vcxa
lions nnd disappointments ns well ns gains,
dividends and percentages; if you nre harassed
with a multiplicity of entragemcntB; In a word,
If you are driven from .Monday morning to
Saturday night, and from January to January,
with relentless obligation and duty, then you
nre a business mnii or t business woman, nnd
my subject Is appropriate to your ease. We
nre ntit to speak ot tm moil ami ton oi ousi
ness life as though It were an Inquisition or a
prison Into which a man Is thrown, or im un
equal strife where, half armed, ho goes to
contend. Hear nie this morning while I try
to sliov you mat iioii iiiieuiieu n,i-incns nie
to be a glorious i diieatlon and discipline; ami
If I shall bo mcct'fsful in what I want to sav,
I shall rub the wrinkles out of vour brow and
unstrap some ot the burdens fioiu your back,

Thcv have niord reflections for the sudden re
verses of fortune. How nre you going to get
that grace of patience! ot tliroitgli ne.tring
ministers preach about It. O, no! If you get
it at all uu w ill get It In the world where you
sell Hals, anil plena chucs, nnu im roois,
and make shoes, and turn bannisters, nnd
plough corn. I pru liod that through the
turmoil, and sw eat. ami exasperation of your
everyday life you may hear the voice of Christ
saving to jou": "If patience jmssess your tout,
let patience have n perfect work."
Again: (!od intended busiiiess life to be to

Merchants do not read ninny books nor study

no! that was oiilv tuition, expensive schooling,
but it was worth it Misfortune, with bind

and by tho very force of circumstances btibi
ncss men get to bo intelligent. Traders In
grains mu-t know about foreign harvests,
Traders In fruit must know about the prospects
of tropical production. Manufactuiers of
American goods must know about the tariff
on imported articles. Publishers of books
must kno t the new law of copyright. Owners
ot ships come to understand winds, and
sho.tls and navigation. And so every bain of
cotton, and every nilsln cask, and every tea
box, and even- cluster of bananas, becomes
literature to our business men.

Now what Is the use of nil this Intelligence
unless you give It to Christ! Do you supposo

have been learning about foreign lands and

iutve no missionary spirit! Can It be that you
Have been learning tlie lollies and lileueries
and hollow ness of the business world and yet
you are not trying to bring to bear upon them
this gospel which Is to correct all abuses and
abolish all ignorance and correct all mistakes

Again: (iod intended business life to he to
you a school of Christian Integrity. No ngo of
tho world ever offered so many Inducements
for scouiidicllsm ub nro offered now. There
Is hardly a slutuu ou the law books that has
not fount back door through which miscreants
can escape. How many deceptions In the fab
rlc of L'ooihl Commercial life piles the land
with trickeries Innumerable, and there aro bo
many people In Brooklyn and New York who
live a life of plunder that when a man pro
poses a straightforward, honest business it Is
aniiosi cnargeu io greenness aim iraiitui laci,.
Ah I nil' brethren, tills ought not to bo. Hut I
have to tell you that It requires more grace to
bo honest now than it did In the days of our
fathers, when business was plain, and there
were no stock gamblers, and woolen was
woolen, and silk was sill.-, and men were men.
How rure It Is that you II nil a man who ran
from ins Heart say: "i never eiieaieu in irauo;
1 never overestimated tho value of goods when
I was selling them; 1 never covered up a de
fect In a fabric; I never played upon tho Igno
rance of a customer, and lu all my estato
there Is not one il.shonest farthing." There
are those who can say It. They never let their
Integrity bow or cringe to pies 'lit advantage.
Tin y aio fis pure and Christum to-day as on tlio
day when they sold their llrst tierce ot rice or
their llrst Ilrkln of butter.
There were limes when they could hnvo
robbed a partner, when they could have ab
sconded with the funds of a bank, when they
could hnvo sprung a suiiii judgment, when
they could have borrowed inimitably, when
they could have made a falto assignment,
when they could huvo rubied u neighbor for
tho purpose of picking up some of the frag
ments; hut they never took one step on thut
pathway of, hell lire. Now they can pray
without being haunted with the chink of dis
honest gold. Now they can read the Bible
without thinking of tlie (lay when, with a Hi)
on their soul, they kl-aed the book In a cus
tom house. Now they can look Into the
laughing faces of their children without
thinking of orphans, left by them penniless
and houseless. Now they can think of death
without their knees knock together,
and their hearts sink, and their teeth chatter,
because there Is a judgment where nil do
fraudcis anil jockeys una tricksters nnd char
latans shall be doubly damned. Now they
cuu rend lu tho Bible without flinching: "As
tho pitrtldgo slttuth on eggs mid hatcheth
them not, so he that getteth riches, and not
by right, shall leave them In the midst of his
days, und at tho end shall bo a fool,"
Alas! If any of jou for the puroso of get
ting out of teuiH)rary emhnrrassment dare to
sell jour soul or any Kirtlou of It. You may
wuku up lu tho midst of embarrassment and
say: ' No ono Is looking. This may bo u lit
tle out ot the way hut It is only onco, only
once." On that ono occasion you not only
wreck your spiritual nature hut you despoil
your bulnc6s prospects. Yci put one dishon
est dollar lu an estate, but It will nut stand.
You may take it dishonest dollar und put It
down lu the very depths of tho earth ami you
limy roll on tho top of it rocks und mountains,
unit on the top of those rocks nnd mountains
you may put all tho banks and moneyed Insti
tutions, piling them up heaven high; but thut
ouo dishonest dollar down lu tho depths of tho
earth will begin lo rock, and hoavo, and up
turn llself until It comoi to the resurrection
of diminution. You can not hide a dishonest
In tlie review of this subject there nre two
or thrco things I want to say, and tho llrst Is,
let us hnvo a larger sympathy for business
men. I think It Is a shuinu that lu our pulpits
wo do not ofteuer preach ou this subject ami
show that wo appreciate the sorrows, and
struggles, und tcuiptutlo:is, and trials of every
day life.
Men who toll with the hand are very apt to
bo susiilc ous of those who inovii lu the world
of tralllc and think that they get their money
Idly and thut they give no equivalent. Men
who raise the corn and wheut and rye and
oats are very upt to think that grain mer
chants get easy jirollts. Tho first ts very ant
to bo jealous of the brain. Plato and Aris
totle were to oioscd to all kinds of mer
chandise that they said commerco was tho
curso of tho earth, uud they recommended
that cities should never bo built any nearer
the scacoust than leu miles. But wo nave be
come wiser than that, and you know thut
there uro no harder workers than thino who
plan ami cilculuto In stores and banks nnd
counting houses. Wiiat though their njiparcl
bo neat, what though their manners Lo re
fined, do not put them down us Idler. They
carry load lieuvler than u bod of bricks,
they go Into exposures keener than tho cut
ting of tho cast wind, tiny scale mountains
higher thuu tho Alps and Himalayas, and,
muliituliilug their Christian Integrity. Christ

The larger the note vou have to pn, thn
greater the uncertainty of business life. Mm
better for tour soul, if .lesus thrisl leans you
triumphantly through. How do 1 knowl I know
It by this principle that the hotter the fur
nace, the better the reflnlng. There have been
thousands of men who have gone through tho
same path you are now going through with an
aching heart. There are multitudes be oro tho
throne of (iod who were 1 shed with caves nnd
anxieties Innumerable, nnd were cheated out
of every thing but their collln. They were sued,
they were rejected, they were Imprbone t for
deb"t. thev wcie maltreated they were throttled
by constables witli wliole packs of writs, tncy

loudly and angrily by the hand of some Im
petuous creditor, who was surprised that that
sick man should be so Impertinent and outra

three shillings ami sixpence. O, how men are

There Is a gicat multitude ot business men

(iod, standing on seas of glass, will cry out:
"These nio they who eaiuo out of great tribu

Onco more: I want ton to seek business
grace. Commercial cthlca, business honor,
laws of trade may do very well for awhile,
but thero will come a time when the ground
will slip from under your feet and tho world
will frown, und the devils will set after our
soul, and you will want more then than this
world can give you. You wilt want the eter

During tho past twclvo months tho
pruotico of (li'lioining cattlo liaa inndn
considerable progress in tho North, and
is beginning to bu a recognized essential
to tho stocknians' interests. Many
good people object to the practice- oa
various grounds, but mainly becuuso
nature, having given bonis, man should
not nuitilato nature's work, anil be
cause tho operation causos pain to tho
animal. Neither of these objections
will have; much weight with the practi
cal stock raisor. Without uny Inten
tion of rcllectiug on tlie wisdom of tho
Creator, it lias been so long tho prac
tico to "Jmproro on nature," with ad
vantage to the owner of tho nuiinuL
tltat the first objection will he iittlo re
garded. The castration anil spiiying of
st6ek and tho docking of lambs' tails
may bo cited in proof of necestiitj of
interfering with natiiro's handiwork.
Tho other objection that tlie pmctico
is cruel, will hnvo Iittlo force when tho
advantages aro considered. It lias
been domonstratod beyond a doubt that
a full grown animal will sutler low
pain in dehorning than a calf, pig, ot
lamb in castration, and it is far iroru
being so painful as branding. The
fact is the peal of pain is not in tho
horn, bur in the central s iiua of tho
liuad. If tho dehorning is done wliilo
tlie animal is quite young, it will givo
no ovidenco of sullcring. 1 lor us aro a,
groat ornament to an animal, and so
long as an animal is only raised for or
nament it should retain them, but when
said animal is required for domestic or
commercial purposes horns becomo an
unmitigated nuisance and a ttourco ot
danger, and should bu removed. Ad
mitting the beauty to the horn, wo
cannot concede any other point, it iu
no usq to tlie animal except as a
weapon of ollbnso and defense, nnd if
all animals were hornless, such :i
woapon would not bo required. Tho
horn is a constant fcotirco of danger to
man and to beast; remove it anil tho
danger vanishes. Sonio of tho worst
niaii-kllliiig bulls, after dehorning, be
camo so gontlo and tradable that child
ren could handle thorn witli safety. Tho
absonco of horns will permit nearly
double tho usual amount of cattlo to ba
kept In ft given shod spacv, na tba
desiro to light generally leaves with
tho horns, and cattle will feed quietly
side by side, thus saving stable yjiae,
food and injury to each other. Kvey
thlugis iu favor of dishorning, and
woll-nioanltig humanitarians way
abandon tliotr opposit.on, ns it will
soon bo universally practiced. Thm
