REV. DrT. TALMAQE PREACHES A SER
MON OF CONSOLING INFLUENCE.
TikIu) and Ono Hundred Years From Now.
The Necessity of Death nnd Dceaj Tlmo

UuooiUiYK, Nov. ltt.'-Iluv. Dr. T.t!
muso today preached a Bcrmon of ttnusn
ll itiid marvelous consolation to the usual
I iiougs ufter they had sung:
There la no sorrow that hca en cannot cure.
(Thasubjoct v.'ns,,Oblivion and ltd De
feats." Tho texts selected were Job xsiv,
20, "HoshalMjo iomoro- remembered,"
and Psalms cxii, C, "The righteous shall
be in overlasting remembrance."
"Oblivion and Its Defeats" is my sub
jpet today. There is an old monster that
swallows down everything. It crunches
individuals, families, communities,
states, nations, continents, hemispheres,
worlds. Its diet is made up of years, of
centuries, of cycles, of millenniums, of
cons, mat monster is called by Noah
Webster and nlj the other dictionarians
oblivion. It is n steep down which ev
erything rolls. It is a conflagration in
which everything is consumed. It is a
dirge in which all orchestras play nnd a
period at which everything stops. It is
the cemetery of the human race. It is
tho domain of forgetfulness. Oblivion!
At times it throws a fehadow over all of
us, and I would not pronounce it today
if I did not coino armed in tho strength
of tho eternal God on your behalf to at
tack it, to rout it, to demolish it.
Why, jnst look at tho way tho families
of the earth disappear! For nwhilo they
aro together, inseparable and to each
other indispensable, and then they part.
Some by marriage', going to establish'
other homes, and some leave this life,
and a century is long enough to plant a
family, develop it, prosperit and obliter
ate it. sSo tho generations vanish.
Walk up Broadway, New York; State
street, Boston; Chestnut street, Phila
delphia; The Strand, London; Princess
street,Edinburgh Champs Elysees.Paris;
Unter den Linden, Berlin, and you will
meet in this year 1803 not one person
who walked thero in tho year 1793. What
ingulfment! All the ordinary efforts at
perpetuation are dead J allures. Walter
.Scott's "Old Mortality'may go round
with his chiselrto irecufc the faded epi
taplison tombstones, -but Old Oblivion
has a quicker chisel with which he can
cut out a thousand epitaphs while "Uia
Mortality" is cutting iruono epitaph.
Whole libraries of biographies devoured
of bookworms or unread of the rising
All the signs of tho stores and ware
houses of great firms havo changed, un
less tho grandsons think that it is an ad
vantage to keep the old sign up because
the name of tho ancestor was more com
mendatory than tho name of tho descend
ant. The city of Rome stands today,
but dig down deep enough and you come
to another Rome, buried, and go down
still farther and you will find a third
Jerusalem stands today, but dig down
deep enough and you will find a Jerusa

when our world goes it is so interlocked
by tho law of gravitation with other
worlds that they will go, too, and so far
from havmgour memory perpetuated by
a monument of Aberdeen granito in this
world, there is no world in sight of our
strongest telescopo that will bo a sure
pediment for any slab of commemora
tion of tho fact that wo ever lived or
died at.all. Our earth is struck with
death. Tho axletreo of tho constella
tions will break and let down tho popu
lations of other worlds. Stellar, lunar,
solar mortality. Oblivion! It can swal
low and will swallow whole galaxies of
worlds as easily as a crocodile takes
down a frog.
Yet oblivion does not remove or swal
low anything that had better not bo re
moved or swallowed. Tho old monster
is welcome to his meal: This world
would long ago havo been ovorcrowded
if it had not been for tho merciful remov
al of nations and generations. What if
all the books had lived that were ever
written and printed and published? Tho
libraries would by their immensity have
obstructed intelligence and made all re
search impossible. Tho fatal epidemic of
books was a merciful epidemic.
Many of the state and national libra
ries today are only morgues in which
dead books are waiting for some ono to
come and recognizo them. What if all
the people that had been born were still
alive? Wo would have been elbowed by
our ancestors of ten centuries ago, and
people who ought to have said their last
word 3,000 years ago would snarl at us,
saying, "What aro you doing here?"
There would have been no room to turn
around. Somo of tho past generations of
mankind wero not worth remembering.
The first useful thing that many people
did was to die their cradle a misfortune
and their grave a boon.
I This world was hardly a comfortable
place to live in before the middle of the
last century. So many things have como
into the world that were not fit to stay
in wo ought to be glad they wero put
out. The waters of Lethe, the fountain
of forgetfulness, are a healthful draft.
The history we have of tho world in ages
past is always one sided and cannot be
depended on. History is fiction illus
trated by a few straggling facts. In all
the Pantheon the weakest goddess is
Clio, the goddess of history, and instead
of being represented by sculptors as
holding a scroll might better bo repre
sented as limping on crutches.
Faithful history is the saving of a few
things out of moro things lost. Tho im
mortality that comes from pomp of ob
sequies or granito shaft or building named
after its founder or page of recognition
in somo encyclopedia is an immortality
unworthy of one's ambition, for it will
all cease and is no immortality at all.
Oblivion! A hundred years. But while
I recognizo this universal submergenco
of things earthly, wno wants to do ior
gotten? Not ono of us.
Absent for a few weeks or months
from home, it cheers us to know that we
aro remembered there. It is a phraso wo
have all pronounced, "I hope youmissed
me." Meeting some friends from whom
wo have been parted many years, wo in
quire, "Did vou ever 6oemo before?" and
they say "Yes," and call us by name, and
wo feel a delightful sensation thrilling
through their hand into our hand, and
running up from elbow to shoulder, and

CHARACTER 13 ETERNAL.
Another defeat of oblivion will bo
found in the character of those whom wo
rescue, uplift or save. Character is eter
nal. Supposo by a right influence wo
aid in transforming a bad man into a
good man, a dolorous man into a happy
man, a disheaitcned man into a cour
ageous man every stroke of that work
done will be immortalized. There muy
never bo so much as ono line in a news
paper regarding it, or no mortal tongue
may ever whisper it into human car, but
wherover that soul shall go your work
upon it shall go, wherever that soul rises
jour work on it will rise, and bo long as
that soul will last your work on it will
Do you supposo there will over como
such an idiotic lapse in tho history of
that soul in heaven that it shall forget
that you invited him to Christ; that you
by prayer or gospel word turned him
round from tho wrong way to tho right
way? No such insanity will ever smite a
heavenly citizen. It is not half as well
known on earth that Christopher Wren
planned and built St. Paul's as it will bo
known in all heaven that you wero the
instrumentality of building a temple for
We teach a Sabbath class, or put a
Christian tract in tho hand of a passorby,
or testify for Christ in a prayer meeting,
or preach a sermon and go homo dis
couraged, as though nothing had been ac
complished, when we had been character
building with a material that no frost or
earthquake or rolling of tho centuries can
damage or bring down.
Thero is no sublimer art on earth than
architecture. With pencil and rulo and
compass, tho architect sits down alono
and in silence, and evolves from hlsown
brain a cathedral, or a national capitol, or
a massive homo before ho leaves that ta
ble, and then he goes out and unrolls his
plans, and calls carpenters and masons
nnd artisans of all sorts to cxecuto his
design, and when it is finished he walks
around the vast structure, and sees the
completion of the work with high satis
faction, and on a stone ut some corner
of tho building tho architect's name may
But the storms do their work, and
time, that takes down everything, will
yet take down that structure, until there
shall not be ono stone left upon another.
But there is a soul in heaven. Through
your instrumentality it was put there.
Under God's grace you aro tho architect
of its eternal happiness. Your name is
written, not on ono corner of its nature,
but inwrought into its every fiber and
energy. Will tho storms of winter wash
out tho story of what you havo wrought
upon that spiritual structure? No. There
aro no btoruis in that land, and there is no
winter. Will time wear out tho inscrip
tion which shows your fidelity? No. Time
is past, and it is an everlasting now. Built
into the foundation of that imperishable
structure, built into its pillars, built into
its capstone, is your name-either the
name you have on earth or the name by
which celestials shall call you. .
I know tho Bible says in one place tliat
God is a jealous God, but that refers to
the work of those who worship some oth
er cod. A true father is not jealous of
his child. With wliat glee ycu show the
picture your clilia pencneu, ur a i,
tour child hewed ouU or recite the noble
deed your child accomplished. And God
never was jealous of a Joshua, never
waa jealous of a Paul, never was jeal
ous of a Trances Havergal, never was
jealous of a man or woman who tried
toheal wound and wipe away tear,
nnd lift burdens and save souls;

Oh, this character building! Tho struc

turies, independent of crumbling mauso
leums, independent of tho whole plano

verse, which seems all bound together
like oncpieco of machinery, should somo
day meet with an accident that should
send worlds crashing into each other liko
telescoped railway trains, and all tho
wheels of constellations nnd galaxies

A TROWN FOLLOWED BY A 1383.
There is another and a moro complete
defeat for oblivion, and that is in the
heart of God himself. You have seen a
sailor roll up his sleeve and show you his
arm tattooed with tho figuro of a favor
ite ship perhaps the first ono in wldch
ho over sailed, You havo seen a soldier
roll up his sleeve and show you his arm
tattooed with the picture of a fortress
where he was garrisoned, or tho faco of a
great general under whom ho fought.
You have seen many n hand tattooed
with the face of a loved ono beforo or
This tattooing is almost as old as tho
world. It is somo colored liquid punc
tured into tho flesh so indelibly thafc
nothing can wash it out. It may have
been there CO years, but when tho man
goes into his coffin that puncturo will g6
with him on hand or arm. Now, God
says that ho has tattooed us upon his
hands. Thero can bo no other meaning
in tho forty-ninth chapter of Isaiah,
where God says, "Behold, I havo graven
theo on tho palms of my handsl"
It was as much as to say: "I cannot
open my hand to help, but I think of
yon. I cannot spread abroad my liahds
to bless, but 1 think of you. Wherover
1 uo up uud down tho heavens I take
these two pictures of you with mo. Thoy
nro so inwrought into my being that I
cannot lose them. As long as my hands
last the memory of you will last. Not
on the backs of my hands, as though to
announce you to others, but on the
palms of my hands for myself to look
ut nnd study und lovo. Not on tho
palm of ono hand alone, but on tho
palnis of both hands, for while I
am looking upon one hand nnd thinking
of you, I must havo the other freo to pro
tect you, freo to striko back your enemy,
free to lift if you fall. Palmsof my hands
indelibly tattooed. And though I hold
tho winds in my fist no cyclono shall up
root tho inscription of your namoand
your face, and though I hold the ocean
in tho hollow of my hand its billowing
shall not wash out tho record of my re
membrance. 'Behold, I have graven thee
on tho palms of my hands.' "
What joy, what honor can thero be
comparable to that of being remeralered
by tho mightiest and kindest nnd love
liest and tenderest and most aiTectionate
being in the universe. Think of it to
hold an everlasting place in the heart of
God. Tho heart of God! The most beau
tiful palato in tho universe. Let the
archangel build some palace as grand as
that if ho can. Let him crumble up all
the stars of yesternight and tomorrow
night and put them together as mosaics
for such a palace floor. Lot him take all
tho sunrises and sunsets of all the days
and the auroras of all the nights and
hang them as upholstery at its windows.
Let him take all the rivers, and all the
lakes, and all the oceans, and toss them
into tho fountains of this palace court.
Let him take all the gold of all the hills
nn.l hanif it in its chandeliers, ana ail
the pearls of all the seas and all tlto dia
monds of all tho fields, and with them
arch the doorways of that palace, and
then invito into it all tbe glories that
rither ever haw at a Pemian bauqnet,
or Daniel ever walked among in Baby
lonian castles, or Joseph ever witnessed
in Pharaoh's throneroom, and then your
self enter this castle of archangelic con
itruction and see how poor a iwlace it is
compared tb the greater palace that
some of you have already found in the
heart of a loung and pardoning God,
and into which all the music and all the
prayers, and all the sennonlc considera
tions of this day aro trying to introduce
yon through the blood of the slain Lamb.
