Brooklyn, Oct. 1.' In his sermon this
forenoon in tho Brooklyn-Tabernaclejfaa
in many other disccmrs"ea, Rev. T. Do
Witt Talmngo took his hearers and read
era through an untried region of thought
and found a Bubject for "most practical

"Tho Botany of tho Bibb;-, or, God
Among tho Flowers" ia a faHCiHating sub
ject. I hold in my haud-a'book which I
brought from Palestine, bound in olive
wood, and within it are pressed flowers
which have not only retained their color,
butitheir aroma. Flowers from Bethle
hem, flowers from Jerusalem, flowers
from Gethsemane, flowers from Mount
of Olives, flowers from Bethany, flowers
from Siloam, flowers from tho valley of
Jehoshaphat, red anemones and wild
mignonette, buttercups, daisies, cycla
mens, camomile, bluebell8,-'ferns, moss
es, grasses and a wealth of flora that
keep mo fascinated by tho hour, and
every time I open it it is a new revela
tion. It is tho New Testament of the
fluids. But my text leads us into an
other realm of tho botanical kingdom.
Having spoken to you in a course of
sermons about "God Everywhere" on
"Tho Astronomy of the Biblo; or, God
Among tho Stars;" "Tho Ornithology of
tho Bible; or, Gocl Among the Birds;"
"The Ichthyology of the Biblo; or, God
Among tho Fishes';" "The Mineralogy
of the Bible; or, God Among tho Ame
thysts;" "Tho Conchology of the Bible;
or, God Among tho Shells;" "Tho Chro
nology of tho Biblo; or, God Among tho
Centuries" I speak now to you about
"The Botany of the Bible; or, God In
the Gardens of tho Sea." Although I
purposely take this morning for consid
eration tho least observed and least ap
preciated of nil tho botanical products of
the world, wo shall 'find the contempla
tion very absorbing.
In all our theological seminaries where
we make ministers thero ought to bo
professors to give lessons in natural his
tory. Physical science ought to be taught
sido by side with revelation, It is tho
samo God who inspires tho pago of the
natural world as the page of tho Scrip
tural world. What a freshening up it
would bo to our sermons to press into
them even a fragment of Mediterranean
seaweed! Wo should have fewer ser
mons awfully dry if we imitated our
blessed Lord, and in our discourse, like
him, wo would let a lily bloom, or a crow
flv. or a hen brood her chickens, or a
crystal of salt flash out tho preservative
qualities of religion.
The trouble is that in many of our
theological seminaries men who are so
dry themselves they never could get
people to come and hear them preach
are now trying to teach young men how
to preach, and the student is put between
two great presses of dogmatic theology
and squeezed until thero is no life left
in him. Give tho poor victim at least
one lesson on tho botany of tho Bible.
WONDERS OF THE DEEI
Thnt. WHS nn awful ulunco thattho rec
reant prophet Jonah made when,
dropped over the gunwales of tho Medi
terranean ship, ho sank many fathoms
down into a tempestuous sea. Both be
fore and after the monster of the deep
swallowed him, ho was entangled in sea
weed. Tho jungles of tho deep threw
their cordage of vegetation around him.
3omo of this seaweed was anchored to
tho bottom of tho watery abysm, and
some of it was afloat and swallowed by
tho great sea monsterso that, while the
prophet was at tho bottom of tho deop
..f. i, wn lmrriblv imprisoned he
could exclaim and did exclaim in tho
,nwia nt ,nv text. "Tho weeds were
imniuui nivMif. iviv head."
Jonah was tho first to record that thero
are growths upon tho bottom of tho sea
as well as uposjand. Tho first picture
I ever owned was a handful of seaweeds
pressed on a pago, nud I called them
"tho shorn locks of Neptuue." These
products of the deep, whether brown or
green or yellow or purplo or red or inter
x,i.f f mnv fnlnrs. are most fascmat-
x ti,v ,.r distributed all over tho
;m., nwl from Arctic to Antarctic.
That God thinks well of them I conclude
from the fact that ho lias made 0,000
Rtiecies of them. Sometimes these water
plants aro 400 or 700 feet longnud they
cable the sea. O110 specimen has a
growth of 1,500 feet.
On the northwest shore of our country
is a seaweed with leaves 30 or 40 feet
long, amid which the sea otter makes
his home, resting himself on the buoy
ancy of tho leaf and stem. The thickest
jungles of the tropics are not more full
of ve"ctation than tho depths of the sea.
There are forests down there and vast
prairies all abloom, and God walks there

thinking that they wero denied proper

lived to como ashoro and had then ex
pired! What an alleviation of our trouble
it would havo been to put. them in somo
beautiful family plot, where we could
havo planted flowers and trees over
them." Why, God did better for them
than wo could havo done for them. They
wero let down into beautiful gardens.
Before they had reached tho bottom thoy
had garlands about their brow.
In moro elaborate and adorned place
than we could havo afforded them they

But dismiss your previous gloom about
tho horrors of ocean entombment.
THE MISTAKES OF JONAH.
When Sevastopol was besieged in the
Anglo-French war, Princo Mentchikof,
conunandintr tho Russian navy, saw that
the only way to keep the English out of
tho harbor was to sink all of the Russian
shins of war in tho roadstead, and so 100
vessels sank. When, after the war was
over, our American engineer, Gowan, de
scended to tho depths in a diving bell, it
was an impressive bpectaclo.
Ono hundred buried ships! But it is
that way nearly all across the Atlantic
ocean. Ships sunk not by command of
ndmirnls. but bv tho command of cy
clones. But they all had sublimo
burial, and the surroundings amid
which thev sleep tho last sleep are moro
imposing than tho Taj Mahal, tho mau
soleum with walls incrusted with pre
cious stones and built by the great mo-

Tho greatest obsequies over known on
tho land wero those of Moses, where no
one but God was present, ine suu
nnrr. nf tlmt entombment is in
book of Deuteronomy, which says that
the Lord bnried him. and of those who
havo gone down to slumber in tho deep
the samo may bo said, "Tho Lord buried
them." As Christ was buried in a gar
den, so your shipwrecked friends and
those who could not survive till thoy
reached port were put down amid iri
descence "In tho midst of tho garden
thero was a sepulcher."

his million friends had put a bouquet
on his casket. In tho midst of tho garden
was hi3 6epnlcher.
But that brings mo to notice the nils-
noraer in wis juuuumu vr. -tho
text. Tho prophet not only made a
mistake by trying to go to Tars lush
when God told him to go to Nineveh,
1..... i.m,in n tniRtako when he styled
as weeds these growths that enwrapped

something that is use ess. Itii
thing you throw out from the garden.
It is something that chokes the wheat.
It is something to bo grubbed out from
m tho cotton. It is toraething un-
sightly to tho eye. It is an invader or
the vegetablo or floral world.
But this growth that sprang up from
the depth of the Mediterranean or
floated on its surface was among the
St beautiful things that ; God .over

woman was nsked if sho sent her child

they ought to learn, but I couldn't. I
try to shame him sometimes (it is my

rather havo all my children dead than

Another one of thoso poor women
found bv n reformatory association, re
cited her story of want and woo and
looked up and said, "I felt so hard to
loso the children when they died, but
now I'm glad they're gone." Ask any
ono of a thousand such children on the
streets, "Whero do you live?" and they
will answer. "I don't livo nowhere."

davtd'u MARINE DOXOLOQY.
Thero Is ncreat comfort that rolls over
upon uh from this study of tho so called'
seaweed, und that is tho demonstrated
doctrine of a particular providence.
When I find that tho Lord provides in
tho so called seaweed tho pasturage for
tho thronged marine world, so that not
a fin or scale in all that oceanic aqua
rium suffers need, I conclude ho will feed
us, und if ho suits the alga to tho ani
mal lifo of tho deep ho will provido tho
food for our physical and spiritual needs.
And if ho clothes tho flowers of the deep
with richness of robo that looks bright
ns fallen rainbows by day, and nt night
makes the uudorworld look ns though
tho sea were on fire, surely ho will clotho
you, "O yo of little faith!"
And what fills mo with unspeakablo
delight is that this God of dopths and
heights, of ocoan and of continent
may, through Jesus Christ, tho divinely
appointed means, bo yours and mine, to
help, to cheer, to pardon, to eavo, to
imparadise. What matters who in
earth or hell is against us if ho is for us?
Omnipotence to defend us, omnipresence
to companion us and infinite lovo to en
fold and uplift and enrapture us.
And when God does small things so
well, seemingly taking ns much caro
with tho coil of a seaweed as the out-
branchiug of a Lebanon cedar, and with
tho color of a vegetablo growth which is
hidden fathoms out of sight as ho docs
witli tho solferino and purplo of a sum
mer Buneet, we will be determined to do
well all wo aro called to do, though no
ono see or appreciate us. Mighty God!
Roll in upon our admiration nnd holy
appreciation inoro of tho wonders of this
submarine world. My joy is that after
we aro quit of all earthly hindrances wo
may como back to this world and explore
