REV, DR. TALMAGE'S SERMON, TEE OLOBIOTTS 1CAEOH.' TO ZION The Sunday Sermon as Delivere d bj •tho Eminent Brookly n Divine. I TEXT- \Fair as the moon, clear as tht sun and terrible as an army with ban­ ners.\ —Solomon's Song vi., 10. Tho fragrance o£ spikenard, the flash of jewels, the fruitfulness of orchards, tho iaxurianco of gardens, the beauty of Hosh- bonflsk pools, tho dew of the night and tho splendor of the morning—all contribute to the richness of Solomon's stylo when ho comes to speak of tho glory of tho church. In contrast with his eulogium of the church, look at tho denunciatory things that aro said in our day in regard to it. I f ono stock­ holder becomes a cheat, docs that destroy tho wholoconipauy? If one soldier be acoward, does that condemn tho whole army? And yet there aro many in this day so unphiluso- phio, so illogical, so dishonest and so uiiiuir as t o denounce thu entire church of d o I be­ cause thero are hero and there bad men bo- longing to it. Thera ore those who sny that the church of God is not up to the spirit of tho day in which wo 1 ve, out I have to toll you that, notwithstanding all the swift wheels and thu flying shuttles and tho lightning communi­ cations, tho world has nover yet been ntilo to keep up with thu church. A s high as God isabovomnu, sohi^histne church of bod —higher than all human institutions. From her lamp the best discovvrio-; of the world have been HghteJ The best of our inventors have believed in tho Christian religion—the Fultous, tho Morses, tho H lutuoys, tho Porrys and tho Livingstones. She has owned the best of the telescupoi and Layden jars, and whilo infidelity nuJ atheism liavo gono blindlolded among the most startling dis­ coveries that were about to bedevoloped the earth, and the air, and the sea have male quick and niaguilic'nt responses to Christaiu philosophers. Tho world v. ill not bo up to tho Church of Christ until the uny when all merchan­ dise has becomo honest merchandise, and all governments have become lreo governments, and till nations evangelized ziatiou^, and tho last dent ear of spiritnal death slmh be broken open by thu iu.)!i<>u voiced shout ol nations burn m n day. The church that Neburliailiu'z^ ir tri •(! lo burn in the lurnacc, an I Dar.us to tear to piece-, with tho lion*, and Lord Clavcrhousu to cut \with the suord, lias gone on, wndiug the flco-Js and enduring the liiv. until the. deep­ est barbarism, and tlio llcrcest cruelties, and tho bluekesi superstitious have been compelled to look to the east, crying, 4 'W bo is she that louketli lorth as tho morning, lair as tho uioun. (.l >-:ir as the sun and terri­ ble as an army with banners''\ Yet thero are people wno urj ashamed to belong to thu cuurcii of Uhrist, and if you ask them whetuer they arj in sucu as 5 o -in- tions they say, ' Yes. 1 sometimes atten 1 thochureo,\ lnsteet oi realizing tho luet that there is no honor compare 1 with tlu honor of being a uie.nb.ir of the church <»f God. I look back with joy to tho most honored moment ut my lift, when in thuol 1 country meeting huus-j i.io minister o Christ anuouu-vd my namu as a tollowor uf tho Lord.

Chris­ tian church 1 am an old sn'or, an 1 1 Irtvo 1 been up and dowu m tho world, an 1 it's my rule as soon os 1 get into port to fasten my i 6hip lore and utt to thu wharf, tilth »ugli it oiay cost a little u uarfage, rather than nave 1 my shipout in the s ream Uoatiug hither and ! thither with tho tuL- ' ' Ob, men and womer, by tho tides of fnv- | outy and worldliness swept this way an 1 swept that \vu\, seeking lor associationsiiiu' j for satisfaction si or the tm aortal soul, co n.' f into the church ot Jesus ihrist Lash fust i to her. Shu is the pillar and the ground of truth. 1 propose to speak of tho thro -told | glory of tho churcu as it is described in thu test. I First—\Fair as tho moon \ Go 1, who has determined that everything snail bo beautiful in its season, has not loft the night i •without charm, i'ho moon rules th'i night, i The stars are only set as gems lu her tiara. | SSonietimes, before tho sun las gone down, i the moon mounts her throne, but it is aftei , nightfall thut she swaj s lur tin nspute.l 1 scoptre over island iin.l contuieut. river an I j sea. Under her shining tiio plainest maple leaves becomo shivering silver, tho lane! i from shoro to shore looi; liko sliming mir­ rors, and tho ocean, uuder her clnnre, v. itb great tides com up panting upon th-j b -a-.-h, minglinc, ns it \\ei\, foam and fire i Under «itch ry of tho moon tho awfu steeps lose their rugge mess and the cliasm- , their terror Tho poor man bltsses God lor , •throwing so cheap a light through tho broken window pano of his cabin, and to the sic; it seems liko u light from the other shore thai bounds this great deep of huniun pam auc woe. If the suu bo liko a song, lull and loud and poured lorth from brazou instrument! that 1111 heaven and earth with harmony tae mo.ui is ptuimiv • an 1 sad. stamliu^ lie- neatti the. thr m • of Go 1, sending up her so t, -swoet voice of praise, vvuiiu tho stars listen and the sea! No mother over more lovingly watche 1 a sick cradlo than this pale watcaer of the sky bends over ttv* weary, ho irtsio-c, slumbering earth, singing to it a silvery music, whilo it is roe,;e.l in the era lie of the spheres. Now, says my text, \Who is sh?, fair as the moon?' Our answer is tho churcu. Like the moon, she is a borrowed light. S'io gathers up the glory of a Saviour's stiff *r- ings, a Saviour's death, a Saviour's resurrec­ tion, a Saviour's asceusion, and pours that light on palace and duugeou, on squalid heathenism and elaborato skepticism, on widow's tears and martyr's rorro of flame, on weeping penitence an 1 loud moutao I scorn, i Sbo Is tho only institution to-day that gives any light to our world. Into her por­ tals the poor co no and get toe sympathy of a once pillowless Chript, th »5 bereaved como and see tho bo tlo in which God saves all our tears, and tho captives come, an i on the sharp corners of hor altars dash oft their chains, and tbi thirsty COJIO in d put their cup under tb » \Rock o ' Ages,\ whica pours forth ironi its smitten side living water, sparkling water, crystalline water from under tha throne of God and the Lamb. Blessed tho bell that calls her worshipers to prayer. Blessed the water in which hor members aro baptizxl. rJlessoi bo tne wine that glows in her sncramental cups. Blessed the songs on which her devotions travel up and the angels of Go 1 travel down. As t_o moon goe3 through the midst of tho roaring storm clou Is unflushod and un­ harmed, and comes out calm anJ beautiful sn tho other side, so tho church of Go l has gono through all tho storms of this world's persecution and como out uninjured, no worse for tho fact that Robespierre cursed It, and Voltairo caricatured it, and Tom Paine sneered at it, and all tho forces of larkness havo bombarded it. No t like some saletul comet shooting across the sky, tcattoring terror and dis nay among tne nations, but abovo thi long iiowlmg nigat 3f the world's wretchedness the Christian church has mado her mild way, \Fair as the moon.'' I take a stop further in m y subject— \Clear as tin sun.\ After a season of storm Br fog, how you are thrillei whin the sun comes out at DOondayl Tho mists travel up aiil above hill, mountain above, mountain, antil they aro sky lost. The forests are fud of chirp and bu u and song; honey makers an tho long, bird's beak pounding the bark, tho chatter ot tho squirrel on tho rail, the call of a hawk out of a clear sky makes you thankful for tho sunshino which makos all tho world so busy and so glad. The same ran which in the morning kindled confla­ grations among tho castles of cloud scoop! down to paint the lily white and the butter- cupyollowand theforgotmenot blue. What can resist the sun? Light for voy­ ager on tho deep, light for sheoberds euard- tog tha flocks ntleld, light for tao poor tvhc havo no lamps t o burn, light for the down east and tho weary, light for nchin r eyei and burning brain uud consuming captive, light for the smooth brow of childhood and the dim vision o f the octogenarian, light tor tho queen's coronot and sowing girl's needle. •.'Let there be light.\ . Now, says m y toit^ \Who « she that (ooteth forth clear as tho sunf\ Our answer Is, the church. Ton have boon going along a road before daybreak, and on one side you thought you saw a Hon, and on the other side you thought you saw a goblin of the darkness, but when the sua came out you found these wore harmless apparitions. And it is tho great mission of the church of Jesus Christ to como forth \cloar as the sun.\ to illumine all earthly darkness, t o ex­ plain, as far as possible, all mystery, and to mako tho world radiant in its brightness: and that which you thought was an aroused Hon is found out to be a slumbering lamb, and the sepulchral gates of yo ur dead turn out to be the opening gates of heavon; and that which you supposol was a flaming sword to keep you out of paradise is an angel ot light to beckon you in. The lamps on hor altars will cast their glow on your darkest pathway and cheer yon until, far beyond the need of lantern or lighthouse, you aro safoly anchored within the veil. Oh, sun of tho church, shiuo on until tboro is no sorrow to soothe, no tears to wipe away, no shacklos to break, no more souls to be redeemed I Ton thousand hands of sin have atteinptod to extinguish the iamps on her altirs, but thoy aro quenchless-, and to silenco her pulpits, but tne thunder would loap and the lightning would flame. Th? church of (Jo 1 will yet come to full meridian, an 1 in that day all tho mountain! ot the world will bo sacred mountains, touched with the glory of Calvary, and all streams will flow by tho mount oi God liko cool Siloam, and all lakes bo radiant with Gospel memories liko Gennesaret, and all isl­ ands of tho sea bo crowned with apocalyptic vision like l'utnios, and all cities bo sacred as Jerusalem, and all eardeus luxurious ai jiuruoise, with Uod walking in tho cool of tho day. Then tho chorals of irrace will drown out all tho anthouis of earth. Then the throuo of Christ will overtop all carthlv authority. 1 hen tho crown ot Jesus will outflamoall other coronets. Sin destroyed Dentil dead. Hell defeated. Tho church triumphant. Al l tho darknesses of sin, all the darknesses of trouble, all tho darknesses ot earthly mystory hieing thomsalves to thou-dens. \Cloar as the sunj Clear as the sun \' Further, \Terriblo as an army witli bnn- ners.\ Tako ono moro stop in this subject mil say that if you were placod for the de­ fense of a fe -bio town, and a great ar ny were seen coming over tho hills with Hying ensigns, then you would bo ablo to got somo i. lea of the terror that willstriko tho hearts of tho enemies of God whou tho church at last marches on like \an army with ban­ ners.\ You know ih?ro is nothing that excites soldiers' outuusiasm so much as an old ilacr. Jinny a man almost dead, catchm; a glimpse oi the national ensign, has sprung to his feet and Marled ijii m in,o tho battle. Now. m y fiieiil-, J don 't want you to think of tho c 'mivli of Jesus Christ as a defeated institu­ tion, as thu victim of inti l.-l sarcism—some­ tim e to be ki.-ked an 1 cuff -d and trampled on 'hrough nil the tij;es ot the world It is \an\ army with bauner-.\ It has an in­ scription and colors such as never stirred thu hearts of an earthly soldiery.

The many friends of the birds, who have so often and so energetically pro­ tested against their use for the adorn­ ment of women's hats, will be in tercsted in the fate of the moho, one of the most beautiful of the feathered inhabitants of the Sandwich Islands. These birds arc now extinct, and Pro­ fessor Newton, of Cambridec, Eng­ land, estimates that not above half- a-do/.en stulTcd specimens of the spec­ ies exist in the world. Thcv were clothed with magnifi­ cent yellow feathers, and for the sake of these, which were employed in making robes for the native chiefs of the islands, the bird9 were relent­ lessly slaughtered. When the sup- p'y became exhausted recourse was had to another yellow-feathered bird of the Islands, much inferior in beauty, however, and the name O-o. formerly borne ty the Moho, was transferred to this now victim of sav­ age vanity. It can hardly be a comforting re­ flection for those who aid or encour­ age the slaughter of birds for the adornment of human head-gear, that they arc simply imitating a thought­ less custom of the uncivilized natives of a Pacific Island.

The distances traversed by bees In pursuit of honey are surprising to a person unfamiliar with the habits of these busv workers. A book-keeper one morning dredged tho backs of his bees with Hour as they were leaving the hives. He did this by precon­ certed arrangement with a friend who had a Une clover Held in bloom forty miles away. The day following the experiment he received a letter from his friend, stating \There aro plenty of your white-jacket bees here in my clover.\ It was truly a wonderful in­ stinct that sent the bee3 so fur from home in auest of honey.
