Brooklyn, July 80. Uov. Dr. Tnl
mage, who la now on his vacation tonr
?n the went, has chosen for a topic for
his morning, "Children's Rightu," tho
text tidtig Judge xl, 80, "My father,
if thou hast opened thy mouth unto tho
Lord, do to mo according to that which
hath proceeded ont of thy month."
Jophthah won a frcohootor. Early
turned ont from n homo where ho ought
to havo been cared for, ho consorted
with rough men and wont forth to earn
hia living as best ho could. In thoso
times It was considered right for a man
to go ont on independent military expe
ditions. Jophthah was a good man ac
cording to the light of his dark ago, but
through a wandering and a prodatory
life ho became reckless and precipitate.
Tho grace of God changes a man's heart,
but nover reverses his natural tempera
ment THE WIL.9 COMMANDEK.
Tho Israelites wanted tho Ammonites
driven out of their country, bo they Bent
a delegation to Jophthah, asldug him to
become commander in chief of ajl the
forces. He might have said, ' 'You drove
mo out when you had no use for me, and
now you uro in trouble yon want me
back," but he did not say that. He takes
command of tho army, sends messengers
to tho Ammonites to tell them to vacate
tho country, and getting no favorable
response marshals his troops for battle.
Before going out to the war Jephthah
makes a very solemn vow that if the
Lord will give him the victory then on
his return home whatsoever first comes
out of his doorway ho will offer in sacri
fice as a burnt offering. The battle
opens. It was no skirmishing on the
edges of danger, no unlimbering of bat
tories two miles away, but the hurling
of men on tho point of s'words oud
spears until the ground could no more
drink tho blood and tho horses reared to
leap over the pile of bodies of the slain.
In those old times opposing forces would
fight until their swords were broken, and
then each one would throttle his man
until they both fell, teeth to teeth, grip
to grip, death stare to death stare, until
the plain was one tumbled mass of
corpses from which tho lost trace of
manhood had been dashed out.
Jephthah wins the day. Twelve cities
lay captured at his feet. Sound tho vic
tory all through tho mountains of
Gilead. Let the trumpeters call up the
survivors. Homeward to your wives and
children. Homeward with your glit
tering treasures. Homeward -to have
the applause of an admiring nation.
Build triumphal arches. Swing out flogs
all over Tttirpeb. Open all your doors to
receive 'the captnred treasures. Through
every hall spread tho banquet. Pile up
the viands. FJ11 high the tankards.
The nation is redeemed, the invaders
are -routed, nnd the national honor is

only child, rushes out the doorway to
throw herself in her father's arms and
shower upon him more kisses than there
wero wounds on his breast or dents on
his shield. All the triumphal splendor
vanishes. Holding back his child from
his heaving breast and pushing the locks
back from the fair brow and looking in
to tho eyes of inextingnishablo affection,
with choked utterance ho says; ""Would

THE JUIPEN'8 HEROISM.
Sho bows to the knife, and the blood
which so often at the father's roico had
rushed to the crimson cheek smokes in
;the fires of tho burnt offering. No one
can tell ns her name. There is no need
that we know her name. The garlands

Ill tho flret placo, 1 remark that much
of tho system of education in our day Is
a system of sacrifice. When children
spend six or seven hours a duy in school,
and then must spend two or three hours
in preparation for school the next day,
will yon tell me how much time they
will have for snnshino and fresh air and
the obtaining of that exuberance which
is necessary for the duties of coming life?
No ono can feel moro thankful than I
do for tho advancement of common
school education. Tho printing of books
appropriate for schools, the multiplica
tion of philosophical apparatus, tho es
tablishment of normal schools, which
provide for our children teachers of lar
gest caliber, are themes on which every
philanthropist ought to be congratu
lated. But this herding of great multi
tudes of children in ill ventilated school
rooms and poorly equipped halls of in
struction is making many of the places
of knowledge in this country huge holo
causts. Politics in many of the cities gets into
educational affairs, and while tho two
political parties are scrabbling for tho
honors Jephthah's uaugiuer pensnes.
It is so much so that there are many
schools in the country today which are
preparing tons of thousands of invalid
men and women for the future, bo that
in many places by the timo the child's
education is finished the child is finished!
In many places, in many cities of tho
country, thero are large appropriations
for everything else and cheerful appro
priations, but as soon as the appropria
tion is to bo made for the educational or
moral interest of the city we are struck
through with an economy that is well
nigh the death of us.
SPARE THE DELICATE BRAIN.
In connection with this I mention what
I might call the cramming system of the
common schools and many of tho acado
mjeachildren of delicate brain com
pelled to tasks that might appall a ma
tnre intellect, children going down to
school with a strap of books half as high
as themselves. The fact is, in some of
the cities parents do not allow their
children to graduate for the simple-rea
son, they say, "We cannot afford to al
low our children's health to be destroyed
in order that they may gather the honors
of an institution."
Tens of thousands of children educated
into imbecility, so connected with many
such literary establishments there ought
to be asylums for the wrecked. It is
push and crowd and cram and stuff
and jam until tho child's intellect is be
wildered, and the memory is wrecked,
and the health is gone. There are Chil
dren turned out'from the schools who
once wero full of romping nnd laughter
and had cheeks crimson with health who
are now turned out in the afternoon pale
faced, irritated, asthmatic, old before
their time. It is one of tho saddest sights
on earth, an old mannish boy or an old
Girls 10 years of age studying algebra!
Boys 12 years of age racking their brains
over trieonometry ! Children unacquaint

their Latin, French and German lessons!
All tho vivacity of their nature beaten
out of them by the heavy beetle of a
Greek lexicon! And you doctor them
for this, nnd you give them a little med
icine for that, and you wonder what is
the matter with them. I will tell you
what is the matter with them; they are
finishing their education.
In my parish in Philadelphia a child
was sopuBhed at school that sho was
thrown into a feyer, and in her dying
delirium, all night long,"6ho was trying
to recite tho multiplication table. In
my boyhood I remember that in our
plftss at school there was one lad who
knew more than all of us put together.
If we wero fast in our arithmetic, he
extricated us. When wo Btood up for
the spelling class, he was almost always
the head of the class. Visitors came to
his father's house, and ho was almost
oi,ova hrnnaht in as a nrodicy. At 18
years of ago he was an idiot. He lived
10 years an idiot and died an idiot, not
knowing his right hand from his left, or
day from night. The parents and tho
teachers made him an idiot.

Children wanting any thing from tho

must nbt interfere, must not coax off,
