TA IMAGE. j I I'HE BROOKLYN DIVINE'S SUN DAY S KIM ON Subject: "Thr Generations." l>*t • "One generation passeth away, and another generation cometh Ecclesiastog l.i 4. According to the longevity of people it leir particular century has a feneration been . railed 100 years, or fifty years, or thirty I years. By common consent in our nineteenth , ury a generation j. fi ye j fiVu i years, . The profession that evpr moved 1* the procession of years, and the greatest hrmy that ever marched is the army of gene rations. In each generation there are about nine full regiments of days. These 9i25 days in each generation march with wonderful precision. They never break ranks. They never ground arms. They never pitch tents. 1 hey never halt. They are never oft on fur* lough. They came out of the eternity past, nnd they move on toward the eternity future. They cross rivers Without any bridge or boats. The f>oo immortals of the Crimea dashing into them cause no confusion. They move as rapidly at midnight as at midnoon. TtKir haversacks are full of good bread and bitter aloes, clusters of richest vintage and bottles of agonizing tears. With a regular tread that noorderof "double quick" can hasten or obstacle can slacken, their tramp Is on nnd on and on and on while mountains crumble nn 1 pyramids die. "One generation passeth, and another generafion meth." This in my twenty-fifth anniversnry sor rrion—lß69ind 1894. It Is twenty-live years Bince I assumed the Brooklyn pastorate. A whole generation has passed. Threeg>nera tions we have known—that which preceded our own, that which is now at tho front, an I theonecominj? on. We are at the heels of our predecessors, and our successors are at our heels. What a generation It was that precede lU9 ! We who are now in the front regiment are the only ones competent to tell the new generation just now coming In sight who our predecessors were. Biography pan not tell if. Autobiography cannot tell it. Biographies are generally written by special frien ls of tli departed—perhaps l>y wife or Bon or daughter—and they only tell the good things. The biographers of one of the first Presidents of the United States make no rec ord of the President's account books, now in the archives at the Capitol, which I have seen, telling how much he lost or gained daily at the gaming table. The biographers of one of the early Secretaries of the United States never described the scene that day witnessed when tho Secretary was carried dead drunk from tho State ap irtments to his own homo. Autobiography is written by the man himself, and no one would record fot future tim>s his own weaknesses and mora) deficits. Those who keep diaries put down only things that read well. No man or wo man that ever lived would dare to make full record of all the thoughts and words of n lifetime. We who saw and heard much ol the generation marching just ahead ol us are far more able than any book to describe accurately to our successors who our predecessors were. Very much like our selves, thank you. Human nature in them very much like human nature in us. At our time of life they were very much like we now are. At the time they were in their teens they were very much like you are in your teens, and at tho time they were In their twenties the}' were very much like you are in your twenties. Human nature jjot an aw ful twist under a fruit tree in E len, nnd though tho grace of God does much to 9t right en things every new generation has the same twist, an 1 the same work of straightening out has to bo done over again. A mother in the eouutry distiicts, expsct ing the neighbors at her table on some gala night, had with her own hands arranged ev erything in taste, and as Bho was a'jout to turn from it to receive her guests saw her little child by accident upset a pitcher all over the white cloth and soil everything, nn I the mother lifted her hand to slap the child, but she suddenly remembered the time when a little child herself, in her father's house, where they had always before been used to can lles, on the purchase of a lamp, which was a matter of rarity an 1 pri le, she took it in her hands and dropped it, crashing into pieces, an I looking up in her father's face, expecting chastisement, heard oaly the words, "It is a sal loss, but never mini; you did not mean to do it." History repeats itself. Gen°rations wonderfully alike. Among that generation that is past, as iu our own, an 1 as it will be in the generation following us, those who succeeded became the target, shot at by those who did not succeed. In those times, ns in ours, a man's bitterest enemies were those wiioin ho had befriended and helped. Hates, jealousies and revenges were just as lively in 1869 as in IS9I. Hypocrisy sniffled an 1 looked solemn then as now. There was just as much avarice among the apple bar rels as now among the cotton bales nnd among the wheelbarrows as among the locomotives. The tallow candles saw the same sins that are now fouud under the electric lights. Homespun was just as proud as is th 3 modern fashion plate. Twenty-five yeais—yea, twenty-five ?enturies have not changed human nature a particle. I say this for the encouragement or thosj who think that our times monopolize all the abominations of the ages. One minute after Adam got outside ol paradise he was just like you, O man ! One step after Eve left the gate s ie was just like you. O woman ! AU the faults an 1 vices are many times centenarians. Yea, tho cities Sodom. Gomorrah, Pompeii, Hereulaneuaa neliopolis and ancient Memphis w 're as much worse than our modern cities as yo.i mitfht expect from the fact that the modern cities have somewhat yielded to the re straints of Christianity, while those ancient cities were not limited in their abomina tions. Yea, that generation which passe 1 off with in the last twenty-five years had their be reavements. their temptations, their strug gles, their disippointrnents, their successes, their failures, their gladnesses and their griefs, like these two generations now in sight, that in advance and that following. But the twenty-five years between 1869 an l 1894—how much they saw ! How much they discovered ! How much they felt! Within that time have been performed the miracles of the telephone and the phonograph. From the observatories other worlds have been seen to heave in sight. Six Presidents of the United States have been inaugurated. Transatlantic voyage abbreviate 1 from ten days to Chicago and New York, ou?e three days apart, now only twenty-four hours by the vestibule limited. Two addi tional railroads have been built to the Pacific. France has passed from monarchy to repub licanism. Many of the cities have nearly doubled their populations. During that generation the chief surviving heroes of the Civil War have gone int.? the encampment of the grave. The chief physicians, attorneys, orators, merchants, have passed off theeirth or are in retirement waitin 5 for transition. Other men in editorial chairs, in pulpits, in Governors' mansions, in legislative, Sena torial aD i Congressional halls. There are not ten men or women on earth now prominent who were prominent twenty flve years ago. The crew of this old ship of a world is all« hanged. Others at the helm, others on the "lookout." others climbing the ratlines. Time is a doctor who, with potent anodyne, has put an entire generation into sound sleep. Time, like another C rom well, has roughly prorogue iparliament, an 1 with ieonoelasm driven nearly all the rulers ex cept one queen from their high places. »o far as I observed that generation, !or the most part they did their best. Ghastly ex ceptions, but so far as I knew them they di l quite well, and many of them gloriouslj well. They were born at the right time, and they died at the right time. They left Mi* 4 world better than they found it. We arc indebted to them for the fact that they pre- Eared tho way for our coming. Eighteet *t oil red and ninety-four reverently nnc I)I'NX, IIA HN KIT CO., X. ('., THURSDAY, MAY 17.18! U. gratefally SAltltGfi "Oiie geriefatio!) l>ass«th away, an J another generation cometh." There are fathers and mothers here wborr. I baptized in their infancy. There is not one person in this church's board of ee a *ion or trustees who wa" kßfe #kett t CAni£. iter*'- fcttd thefe ih this vast assembly is One person who heaf-d mjr opeiiing Sermon ii\ Brooklvn, btit iitft mdfe than one person in every 500 how present. Of the s -venteen persons who pave me a unanimous call when I ciune, only three, I believe, are living. But this sermon is not a dir/e. It is an nnthem. While this world is appropriate as a temporary stay, as an eternal residence it would be a dea 1 failure. It would be a dreadful sentence if our ra"o wore doomed to remain hefa a thHUsand Vvintef? and a thbUsahd Summers. Go 1 keeps us here just long enough to give us ua appetite for heaven. Had we been horn in celestial realms we would not be able to appreciate the bliss. It neels a poo 1 many rou *h blasts in this world to qualify us to properly esti mate the superb climate of that pood land where it is never too cold or too hot, too cloudy or too glaring. Heaven will be more to us thall to those supernal beings who were nevr tempted or sick or bereave! or tried or disappointed. Bo yon may well take my text out or tne minor key ana set it to some tune in the major key. "One genera tion passeth away, anJ another generation comet h." Nothing can rob us of the satisfaction that tin 'ounte 1 thousan Is of the generation just past were converted, comforted an 1 har vested for heaven by this church, whether in the present building or the three preced ing buildings in which they worshiped. The two great organs of the previous churches went down in the memorable flres, but the mu'.titu linotis songs they le 1 year after year were not recalled or Injured. There is no power in earth or hell to kill a halleluiah. It is impossible to arrest a hosanm. What a satisfaction to know that there are many thousands in dory on whose eternal wel fare this church wrought mightily! Noth ing can undo that work. They have ascend ed, the multitudes who servo 1 God in that generation. That chapter is gloriously ended. But that generation has left its im pression upon this generation. A sailor was dying on shipboard, anl he said to his mates : "My lads, I can only think of one passage of Scripture, 'The soul that sinneth, it shall die,' and that keeps ringing in my ears. 'The soul that sinneth, it shall die.' Can't you think of something else in the Bible to cheer mo up?" Well, sailors are kin 1. an 1 they trie I to think or some other passage of Scripture with which to console their dying comrade, but they could not. One of them said: "Let us call up the cabin boy. His mother was a Chris tian, and I guess he has a Bible." The cabin boy was called up, and the dying sailor asked him if he hail a Bible. lie said "Yes," but he could not exactly find it, and the dy ing sailor scolded him and said, "Ain't you ashamed of yourself not to read your Bible?" So the boy explored the bottom of his trunk and brought out the Bible, and his mother had marked a passage that just lifted the dying sailor's case, "The bloo 1 of Jesus Christ, His Son, cleansath fro n all sin." That helped the sailor to die in peace. So one generation helps another, and good things written or said or done are repro duced long afterward. During the passing of the last generation some peculiar events have unfolded. One day while resting at Sharon Springs, N. Y., I think it was in 1870. the year after my set tlement in Brooklyn, an l while walking in the park of that place, I found myself asking the question: "I wonder if there is any special mission for me to execute in this world? If there is. may Go 1 show it to me !" There soon came upon me a great desire to preach the gosp d through the secular print ing press. I realize 1 that the vast majority of people, even in Christian lands, never enter a church, and that it woul I hi an op portunity of usefulness infinite if that door at publication were opened. And so 1 recorded that prayer in a blank book and offered the prayer day ir. and day out until the answer c ime, though in a way different from that waich I had expected, for it came through the misrepresentation and persecution of enemies, and I have to record it for the encouragement of all minis ters of the gospel who are misrepresented, that if the misrepresentation bi virulent enough and bitter enough and continuous enough there is nothing that so widens one's Held of usefulness as hostile attack, if you are really doing the Lord's work. Thti bigger the lie told about me. the big ger the demand to see and hoar what I really was doing. From one stage of sermonic publication to another the work has gone on until week by week, nnd for twenty-three years, I have had the world for my audience, as no man ever had, an 1 to-day more so than at any other time. The syndicates in form me that my 9ermons go now to about 25.000,000 of people In all lan is. I mention this not in vain boast, but as a testimony to the fact that Goi answers prayer. Would Go i I had better occupied the Held an 1 been ' more consecrated to the work ! May God forgive me for lack of service in the past an l double and quadruple and quintuple my work in future. In this my quarter century sermon I re cord the fact that side by side with tne pro cession of blessings have gone a procession of disasters. lam preaching to-day in the fourth church building since I began work in this city. My first sermon was in the old church on Schermerhorn 3treet to an au li ence chiefly of empty seats, for the church was almost extinguished. That church tilled and overflowing, we built a larger chur *h, which after two or three years disappeared in flame. Then we built another church, which also in a Una of fiery su .-cession dis appeared in the same way. Tnen we put up this luilding, and may it stanifor many j years, a fortress of righteousness an 1 a ! lighthouse for the storm tossel, its gates crowded with vast assemblages long after we have ceased to frequent them ! We have raised in this church over sl.- 030,000 for church charitable purposes dur ing' the present pastorate, while we have given, free of all expense, the gospel to hun dreds of thousan Is of strangers, year by year. I record with gratitude to Gol that during this generation of twenty-five years I remember but two Sabbaths that I havi missed service through anything like physical indispositions. Almost a fanatic on the su'v jeet of physical exercise, I have male the parks with which our city is blessel the means of goo 1 physical condition. A daily walk and run in the open air have kept me ready for work an l iu good humor with ail the world. I say to all ministers of the gospel, it is "easier to keep good health thr.n to regain it when once lost. The reason so many good men think the world is going to ruin is because their own physical con dition is on the down grade. No man ought to preach who has a disease 1 liver or an en larged spleen. There are two things ahea l of us that ought to keep us cheerful in our work—heaven and the millennium. And now, having come up to the twenty fifth milestone in my pastorate, I wonder how many more miles lam to travel? Your company has been exceelingly pleasant. O mv dear people, and I would like to march by your side until the generation with whom we are now moving abreast and step to step shall have stacke I arms after the last battle. But the Lorl knows beat, anl we ought to be willing to stay or go. Most of you ar» aware that I propose at this time, between the close of my twenty ftfth year of pastorate an 1 before the begin ning of my twenty-sixth year, to be absent for a few months in or ier to take a journey around the world. I expect to sail from San Francisco in the steamer Alameda May 31. My plac3 here on Sabbaths will be fully oc cupied. while on Mondays anl every Monday I will continue to sp.'ak through the printing press in this and other lands as heretofore. Why do I go? To make pastoral visitation among people I have never seen, but to whom I liave been permitte I a long waile tc a iminister. I want to see them In their own cities, towns and neighborhoods. I want tc know what are their prosperities, what tne.r adversities and what their opportunltioe. an: «q onlnrjro rr.y work and get mor« adns>t«.i 'PROVE ALL THINGS, AND HOLD FAST TO THAT WHICH IS GOOD fipaa. TVhy dd t go? For edtiffttlonfll pur poses. I want to freshen my mind and heart by new sceneg. new face®, new manners and customs. I want better to understand what are the wrongs to be righted and the waste places H» be reclaimed. I will put R Ut learn in setmons to be preached to yoil when I re* turn 1 rt-ant to see the Sandwiah Islands, not so much in the light of modern politics as in the light of the gospel of Jesus Christ which has transformed them, and Samoa and those vast realms of New Zealand, and Australia and Ceylon anl India. I want to see what Christianity has accomplished. I want to see how the missionaries have been lie.} about as living in luxury and idleness. I want to know whether the heathen re ligions are really as tolerable and as com mendable as they were represented by their adherents in the*parliament of religions at Chicago. I want to see whether Moham medanism an l Buddhism would be pood things for transplantation in America, as it has again and again been argued. I want to hear the Brahmans nray. I want to test whether the Pacific Ocean treats its guests any better than does the Atlantic. 1 want to see the wondrous architecture of India, and the Delhi and Cawnpore where Christ was crucified in the massacre of His modern dis ciples, and the disabled Juggernaut un wheeled by Christianity, and to see if the Taj which the Emperor Sha Jehan built in honor of his empress really means any more than th» plain slab we put above our dear departed. I want to see the fields where Havelock and Sir Colin Campbell won the day against the sepoys. I want to seo the world from all sides. How mudi of it is in darkness, how much of it is in light, what the Bible means by the "ends of the earth," and get myself ready to appreciate the ex tent of the present to be made to Christ as spoken of in the Tsalms, "Ask of me, and I shall give thee the heathen for thine inheri tance and the uttermost parts of the earth for thy possession," and so I shall be ready to celebrate in heaven the victories of Christ in more rapturous song than I could have rendered had I never seen the heathen nbominations before they were conquered. Anil so I hope to come back refreshed, re enforced ard better equipped, and to do in ten years more effectual work than I have done in the last twenty-five. And now, in this twenty-fifth anniversary sermon, I propose to do two things—first, to put a garland on the grave of the genera tion that has just passed off and then to put a palm branch in the hand of the generation just now coming on the field of action, for my text is true, "One generation passeth away, and another generation cometh." Oh. how many we revered and honored and loved in the last generation that quit the earth ! Tears fell at the time of their going, and dirges were sounded, and signals of mourn ing were put on, but neither tears nor dirge nor somber veil told the half we felt. Their going left a vacancy in our souls that has never been filled up. We never get used to their absence. There are times when the sight of something with which they were as sociate I—a picture, or a book, or a garment, or a staff—breaks us down with emotion, but wo bear it simply because we have to bear it. Oh, how snow white their hair got, and how the wrinkles multiplied and the sight grew more dim, and the hearing less alert, and the step more frail, and one day they were gone out of the chair by the fireside, and from the plate at the meal, and from ttie end of the 4*hurch pew, where they worshiped with us. Oh, my soul, how we miss them i But let us console each other with the thought that wo shall meet them again in the land of saluata tion and reunion. Anil now I twist a garland for that de parted generation. It need not be costly, perhaps, just a handful of clover blossoms from the field through which they used to walk, or as many violets as you could hold between the thumb and the forefinger, plucked out of the garden where they used to walk in the cool of the day. Put theseold fashioned flowers right down over the heart that never again will ache, and the feet that will never .again be weary, and the arm that lias forever ceased to toil. Peace, father. Peace, mother! Everlasting peace! All that for the generation gone. But what shall do with the palm branch? That we will put in the hand or the ' generation coming on. Yours is to be the generation for victories. The last and the present generation have been perfecting the , steam power, aud the ele'trie light, an 1 the 1 electric forces. To these will be added trans portation. It will be your mission to use all these forces. Everything is ready for you to march right up an I take this world for God and heaven. Get your heart right by repentance an 1 the pardoning grace of the Lord Jesus, and your min I right by elevat ing books and pictures, an 1 your body right by gymnasium and field exercise, and plenty of ozone and by looking as often as you can upon the face of mountain an I of sea. Then start! In God's name, start' An 1 here is the palin branch. From conquest to conquest, move right on aud right up. You will soon have the whole field for your self. Before another twenty-five years have gone, we will be out of the pulpits, and the offices, and the store", an 1 the factories, an I the benevolent institutions, and you will be at the front. Forward into the battle ! If God be for you. who can be against you? "He that spared not His own Son, but deliv ered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things?" And, as for us who are now at the front, having put the garland on the grave of the last generation, anl having put the palm branch in the hand of the coming genera tion. we will cheer each other in the remain ing onsets anl go into the shining gate somewhere about the same time, an l greeted by the generation that has preceded us we will have to wait only a little while to greet the generation that will come after us. Aud will not that be glorious? Three generations in heaven together—the grandfather, the son and the gran ison , the grandmother, the daughter anl tho granddaughter. Anl so with wider range anl keener faculty we shall realize the full significance of tho text, "One generation passetn away, anl another generation cometh." What Smoke Consists Of. Smoke consists of minute particle? of solid or liquid matter suspended .n the air. and its color depends partly upon the chemical constitu ents of such particles, but also argely upon their size. Exact expe -1 nment has shown that JIS the size of ninute particles suspended in air is jradbally increased they rise to col ors varying from sky hlue down through the whole range of the spec tral Male. I his is the cause of sun set and sunrise colors in the sky. Its .'fleets can he traced in the case of ! he two kinds of tobacco smoke modi ied by the murky tints of the car jonaceous products. Iho smoke rjven olf from the heated surface of lie burning tobacco in the bowl of :he pipe consists of matter, all of vhich has been highly heated and rery fully oxidized anil decomposed, ft "consists mainly of exceedingly ; small solid particles, exhibiting by rirtue of their smallness a bluish ?olor. >n the other hand, that smoke which has been drawn through the tobacco into the mouth of the smoker carries with it a relatively larger quantity of water and hydro carbon. which are condensed upon the solid particles above mentioned. The relatively large size of such par ticles explains the well-known gray ish color of the smoke which issue? 'r>in the mouth of the smoker.
