Washington, Nov. 12-.—This discourse uf Dr. Talmage is a national
congratulation over the achievements
of brain and hand during tlio past
twelve months. '1'he texts are :

There is a, table being spread
across tlie top of the two great ranges of mountains which ridge this
continent, a table which reaches from
the Atlantic to the Pacific sea.
It is the Thanksgiving table of tho
nation. They will come from the
east and thu west and the north
and tho south and sit at it.
Welcome, Thanksgiving day! Whatever we. may think of New England
theology, wc all like New England
Thanksgiving day. What means
the steady rush to the depots and
tl.e long rail trains darting their
lanterns along the tracks of the
Boston and Lowell, the . Georgia
Central, the Chicago Groat Western, the St. Paul and Duluth and
the Southern railway ? Ask the
happy group in thc New England
farm house; ask the villagers,, whose
song of praise in thc morning will
come over the Berkshire hills; ask
all the plantations of the south
which have adopted the New England custom of sotting apart a day
of thanksgiving. Oh, it is a great
day of national festivity I Clap
your hands, yo people, and shout
aloud for joy! Through the organ
pipes let there come down the thunder of a nation's rejoicing! Blow
tho cornet! Wave tho palm
branches! "Oh, that men would
praise the Lord for His goodness
and for His wonderful works to the
children  of  men!"
Things have marvelously changed.
Time wns when the stern edict ol
Governments forbage religious assemblages. Those who dared to be
so unloyal to their King as to acknowledge loyally to tho Head of
the universe were punished. Churches
awfully silent in worship suddenly
heard their doors swung open, and
down upon a church aisle a score of
muskets thumped as the leaders
bade them "Ground arms!" This
custom of having the fathers, the
husbands, the sons and brothers at
the entrance of the pew is a custom
which came down from olden time,
when it was absolutely necessary
that the father or brother should sit
et tho end of the church pew fully
armed to defend tho helpless portion of tho family. But now how
changed! Severe      penalties      aro
threatened ngainst any one who
shall interrupt religious services,
and annually, at thc command of
the highest official in the United
States, we gather together for
thanksgiving and holy worship. Today I would stir your souls to joyful thanksgiving while I speak of
the mercies of God and in unconventional was recount the conquests of the plow, the hammer and
the pen.
Most of the implements of husbandry have been superseded by
modern inventions, but the plow
has never lost its reign. It has furrowed its way through all the ages.
Its victories have been waved by tho
barley of Palestine, the wheat of
Persia, the flax of Germany, the
ricestalks of China, the rich grasses
of Italy. It has turned up the
mammoth of Siberia, the mastodon
of Egypt and the pine groves of
Thessaly. Its iron foot has marched where Moses wrote and Homer
sang and Aristotle taught and Alexander mounted his war charger. It
hath wrung its colter on Norwegian
wilds and ripped out tho stumps of
thc American forest, pushing its way
througli the savannas of tho Carolina* and trembling in the grasp of
tho New Hampshire yeomanry. American civilization hath kept step
with the rattle of its clevises, and
on its beam hath ridden thrift and
national  plenty.
I do not wonder that the Japanese
and tho Chinese and tho Phoenicians
bo particularly extolled husbandry
or that Cincinnatus went from the
consulship to the plow or that Noah
was a farmer before he became a
shipbuilder or that Elisha was in
the fieid plowing with twelve yoko
of oxen when tho mantle fell on hiin
or that the Egyptians in their paganism worshiped the ox as a tiller
of their lands.
Piltheus, the King, found some
rich gold mines in his province, so
he turned all the population to digging in tho mines. Tillage was
neglected, and there came a great
famine. One day the wife of the
King invited him to a great banquet, and he came in and sat down,
and there were pieces of gold in the
shape of bread and pieces of gold
in the shape of biscuits and pieces
of gold in the shape of joints of
meat, and the King was disgusted,
and he said, "I cannot eat this."
"Neither can the people," said his
wife most suggestively, and then
they went back to tho tillage.
To get and appreciation of what
the American plow has accomplished
I take you into the western wilderness. Hero in tho dense forest
I f.nd a collection of Indian wigwams. With belts of wampum tho
men lazily sit on the skins of doer,
smoking their feathered calumets,
or, driven - forth by hunger I
track their moccasins fnr away
os they make the forest echoes crazy
with their wild halloo or fish in tha
waters oi tiie stiip inke. Now tribes
challenge, and council fires blaze,
and warwhoops ring, and chiefs lift
tlie tomahawks ior battle. After
awhile wagons from the Atlantic
coast come to these forests. lly
day trees are felled, and by night
bonfires keep oil the wolves. Log
cabins rise, and the great trees begin to throw their branches in the
path of the conquering white man.
Farms are cleared. Stumps, the
monuments of slain forests, crumble
aud are burned. Villages appear,
with smiths at the bellows, masons
on the wall, carpenters on the housetop. Churches rise in honor of the
Great Spirit whom the red men ig-
nornntly worship. .Steamers on the
lake convey merchandise to her
wharf and carry oust tho uncounted
bushels that liave come to the
market. Bring hither wreaths of
wheat and crowns of rye and let
the mills ami the machinery of burn
n nd field unite their voices to celebrate the triumph, for the wilderness
hath retreated and the plow hath
Parts of the country, under industrious tillage, have become nn
Eden of fruitfulness, in which religion stands as the nee of life and
educational advantages ns the tree
of knowledge ol" good und evil, and
ono of them forbidden. Wc are ourselves surrounded by well cultured
farms. Thoy were worked b.v your
fathers, and perhaps your mothers
helped spread the hay in the Held.
On their headstones are the names
you bear. As. when you were
boys, in the sultry noon you sought
for the harvest held with refreshments for your fathers and found
them inking their noon spell sound
asleep under the trees, so peacefully
now they sleep in some country
churchyard. No      more   fatigued.
Death has plowed for them the deep
furrow of a grave.
Although most of us have nothing directly to do with the tillage
of the soil, yet in all our occupations we feel thc effect of successful
or blighted industry. We must, in
all our occupations, rejoice over tho
victories of tlio plow to-day. Tho
earth was once cursed for man's
sake, and occasionally the soil revenges itself on us by refusing c
bountiful harvest. I suppose that
but for sin the earth would be producing wheat and corn and sweet
fruits as naturally as now It produces mullein stalks and Canada
thistles. There  is hardly  a      hil
lock between the forests of Maine
and the lagoons of Florida, between
the poach orchards of New Jersey
and the pines of Oregon, that has
not sometimes shown its natural
and total depravity. The thorn and
thistle seem to have usurped tho
soil, and nothing but tho rebellion
of the plow can uproot the evil
supremacy. But God is good. Now,
if one of our seasons partially proves
a failure the earth seems to repent
of it the next summer in more munificent supply.
Praise God for the great harvests
that have been reaped this last
year I Some of them llijuiod
by drought or insects or freshets were not as bountiful as
usual, others far in excess of
what have ever before been gathered,
while higher prices will help make
up for any decreased supply. Sure
sign of agricultural prosperity wc
have in the fact that cattle and
horses and sheep and swine and all
farm animals have during tlie last
two years increased in value. Twenty
million swine slaughtered this last
year, and yet so many hogs left.
Enormous paying oil of farm mortgages has spoiled the old speeches of
tho calamity howlers. If the ancient- in their festivals presented
their rejoicings before Ceres, the goddess of coVn and tillage, shall we neglect to rejoice iu tlie presence of
the great God now? From Atlantic
to Pacific let the American nation
celebrate tho victories of the plow.
1 come next to speak of the conquests of the American hammer. Its
iron arm has fought its way down
from the beginning to the present.
Under its swing the city of Enoch
rose, nnd the foundry of Tubal Cain
resounded, and the ark floated on the
deluge. At its clang ancient temples spread their magnificence and
chariots rushed out fit for the battle. Its iron list smote tho marble
of Paros, and it rose in sculptured
Minervas and struck the l'enlelican
mines until from them a Parthenon
was reared whiter than a palace of
Ice and pure as an angel's dream.
Damascus and Jerusalem and Home
and Venice nnd Paris and London
and Philadelphia and Now York and
Washington are but the long protracted echoes of the hammer. Under
the hammer everywhere dwellings
have gone up, ornate and luxurious.
Schoolhouses, lyceums. hospitals and
asylums have added additional glory
to the enterprise as well as the beneficence of thc American people. Vust
public works have been constructed,
bridges havo been built over rivers
and tunnels dug under mountains and
churches of matchless beauty have
gone up for him who had not where
to lay his head, and the old theory
Is exploded that because Christ was
born in a. manger wo must always
worship him in a barn.
Railroads of fabulous length have
been completed, over which western
trains rush past the swift footed
deer, making the frightened birds to
dart into the heavens nt the cough
of the smoke pipes and the savage
yell of the steam whistle. In hot
hasto our national industry advances, her breath the air of 10,000
furnaces, her song the video of uncounted factories, her footstep tho
fins"- of wheel buckets and the tread
of the shaft and the stamp of foundries. Talk about antediluvian longevity! I think tho average of human life is more now than it ever
was. Through mechanical facilities
men work so much faster and nccom-'
plish so much more in a lifetime that
a man can afford to die now at forty
years as well as one of old at 900.
I think the average of human life
in point of accomplishment is now
equivalent to about H00*"years, as
near as I can calculate. In all our
occupations and professions wo feci
the effect of a crippled or enlarged
mechanical enterprise. We all have
stock in every house that is    builded
and in every public conveyance that
is constructed and in every ship that
is sailed. Whin we see lhe hardworking men of the hmd living in
comfortable abodes, wiih luxuries
upon llieir fables ihat once even
kings could not afford, having the
advantage of thorough education, of
accomplishment and art, we are all
ready at this season to unite with
them in praise to God for his goodness.
Now I come to speak of the conquests of the pen. This is the symbol of all intellectuality. Thc painter's pencil and the sculptor's chisel
and the philosopher's laboratory aro
all brothers to the pen, and therefore
this may lie used as a symbol of intellectual advancement. There aro
those disposed to decry everything
American. Having seen Melrose and
Glastonbury by moonlight, they
never beheld among) us an impressive
structure, or, having strolled through
the picture galleries of tiie Louvre
and the Luxembourg, they aro disgusted with our academies of art.,
It makes me sick to hear these peo-
plo who have been to Europe ct mo
homo talking with a foreign accent
und aping foreign customs and talking of moonlight on castles by the
sea. I think the biggest fool in the
country is the traveled fool.
But, considering tho youth of our
nation and the fact that comparatively few persons devote themselves
entirely to literature, I think wo
liave great reason to thank God for
tho progress of our American literature. As historians have we not had
in the past such men as Bancroft and
Prescott, as essayists Irving and
Emerson, as jurists Story and Marshall and Kent, as theologians Edwards and Hodge, as poets Pierre-
pont and Sprague and Longfellow
and Bryant, as sculptors Powers
and Crawford and Palmer, as painters such men as West and Cole and
Inman and Kensett? And among the
living Americans what galaxies of intellectual splendor and power! Edward Eggleston and Will Curleton
and Mark Twain and John Kendrick
Bangs and Marion Harland and Margaret Sangstcr and Stockton and
Churchill and Ilopkinson Smith and
Irving Bachetler and Julia Ward
How. and Amelia. Bnrr and Brnndcr
Matthews and Thomas Nelson Page
and Elizabeth Stuart Phelps and William Denn IIowclls and a score of
others, somo of them fixed stars and
some meteors.
As the pen has advanced our colleges and universities and observatories havo followed the waving of
its plume. Our literature is of two
kinds — that on foot and that on
the wing By the former I moan thc
firm and substantial works which
will go down through the centuries.
When, on the other hand, I speak
of literature on the wing, I mean
the newspapers of the land.
How things havo marvelously
changed! We used to cry because wo
had to go to school. Now children
cry ii they cannot go. Many of
them can intelligently discuss political topics long before they have
seen a ballot box or, teased by somo
poetic muse, can compose articles for
the newspapers. Philosophy and astronomy and chemistry have been so
improved that ho must be a genius
at dullness who knows nothing about
them. On one shelf of a poor man's
library is more practical knowledge
than in the 400,000 volumes of ancient Alexandria, und education is
possible for the most indigent, and
no legislature or congress for the
last fifty years has assembled which
has not had in it rail splitters and
farmers and drovers or men who
have been accustomed to toiling with
the hand and tlie foot.
Tho grain fields have passed their
harvests above the veto of drought
and deluge. The freight cars are not
large enough to bring down tlie
grain to the seaboard. The canal
boats aro crowded With brendslufls.
Hark to tlie rushing of the wheat
througli the great Chicago corn elevators! Hark to the rolling of the
hogsheads of tlie Cincinnati pork
packers! Enough to cat, and at low
prices; enough to wear, and of homo
manufacture. If some have and somo
have not, then may God help those
who have to hand over to those who
have not! Clear the track for the
rail trains that rush on bringing the
wheat and the cotton and the rice
and the barley and the oats and the
hops and the lumber and the leather
and everything for man and everything for beast!
Lift up your eyes. O nation of
God's right hand, at the glorious
prospects! Build larger your barns
for tho harvests; dig deeper the vats
for the spoil of the vineyards; enlarge the warehouses for the merchandise; multiply galleries of art
for the pictures and statues. Ad

but remember that national wealth,
if unsanctilied, is sumptuous waste,
is moral ruin, is magnificent woe, is
splendid rottenness, is gilded death.

lU-u.one Why Animal FlB_re» Are
Rarely Seen on Persian Rugs.
Prayer Rubs of the Mohaminedans
and Their Use—The linen of SHae.
The designs of eastern rugs are often
the spontaneous outcome of the fancy
of the weaver. Sometimes they are
handed down from one generation to
another. In some eases young girls are
taught the design by an adult, wlie
marks it in tho send. At other times a
drawing of the rug is made on paper,
the instructor showing her pupils the
arrangement of every thread nnd the
color to be used. When all this bus
been done, the pupils must make thc
rug without looking at tbe drawing.
Persian rugs excel those of other
countries in artistic design as well as
In harmonious coloring. The Persians
seem to have a natural Intuition In the
use and blending of different shades,
nnd In the designs that contain these
certain colors they achieve the happiest
results. It is really wonderful whnt
exquisite fabrics these people, born
nnd reared In Ignorance and poverty,
The designs In Persian rugs are generally floral, nnd In some districts, especially Fars, the women weavers Invent the designs, varying them every
two or three years. The Mohammedan
religion does not allow any direct representation of animal forms, consequently rugs woven under its Influence
take florul, geometric and vegetable
forms. The Shinh sect of Moslems,
however, numbering about 15,000,000,
of whom 8,000,000 are. Persians, do not
regard representations of animals ns
unlawful. By the industry of this sect
aud that of infidels and of all who disregard the law of the Koran animal
forms are seen on some Persian rugs.
The prayer rug was evidently Invented for the purpose of providing the
worshipers with oue absolutely clean
place on which to offer prayers. It Is
not lawful for a Moslem to pray on any
place not perfectly clean, and unless
each one has his own special rug he Is
not certain that the spot has not been
polluted. With regard to the purity of
the place of prayer Mohammedans are
specially careful when making their
pilgrimages, the rugs which they take
with them having been preserved from
pollution hy being rolled up until the
journey is begun or until the hour for
prayer arrives. It does not matter to
these followers of Mohammed how
unclenu a rug that Is on the floor may
be, because over It they place the prayer rug when their devotions begin.
The Turkish rugs made nt Slvas are
always woven of wool, and almost every hamlet cnrrles on the Industry of
weaving in the homes. There are no
factories, thc young girls and women
doing the work here as Ih other parts
of Turkey. Slvns rugs are in most
cases small, measuring about eight by
four feet, but In these years larger and
more attractive rugs nro being mnde.
Even the poorest families have fine
rugs, for they regard them ns valuable
property, to be sold only under the
pressure of great extremity. The weav
ers are so frugal In their manner of
living that their daily earning of 15 to
10 cents Is sufficient to supply their
wants. Their food consists usually of
rice and crushed wheat, with occasionally a small piece of mutton.
Smyrna is only a mart for the sale
of comparatively Inferior rugs that are
made In the interior from the coarse
hair of the Angora goat. These are
woven In Irregular designs aud, although not artistic, are largely sought
as coverings for tbe bare floors and to
add warmth. The weaving of these
rugs Is crudely done by girls aud women. Sometimes tho loom Is primitively constructed from the trunks of trees.
The deslgus are very simple and have
either beeu handed down from earlier
generations or are supplied from the
Yuruk rugs are so called from a band
of nomads who dwell among the mountains of Anatolia. They have Inrge
flocks of fine sheep nnd weave rugs of
firm, even texture. The colors nre very
good, the field often of dark brown, or-
nnmented with largo deslgus.
About 200 years ago small embroidered rugs were largely made In Persia,
chiefly nt Ispahan. These were prayer
rugs, and on each of them, near one
end, wns a small embroidered mark to
show where the bit of sacred earth
from Mecca was to be plnced. In obedience to a law of thc Koran that the
bend must be bowed to the ground In
prayer this was touched by the forehead wheu the presentation was made,
and so the letter of the law wns carried
out. The custom prevails. The Persian
women who weave the finest prayer
rugs seldom weave any other kind of
rug. '

1'rinls of n Lecturer*
A well known English womnn lecturer tells these stories at her own expense;
"I was," she says, "on a tour through
the provinces, and one ulght as I appeared on the platform In a small town
the chnlruian introduced me to my audience in the following way: 'You have
hoard of Mr. Gladstone, the Grand Old
Man. Let me now Introduce to you
the grand old woman.' This was Intended as a sincere compliment.
"On another occasion a bluff old farmer, who boasted of his ability to look
on all sides of a question, announced
me as follows: 'This lady's come here
to talk ahout her rights,' he said. 'She's
hired the hall, and so she's got a right
to be here, and if any of you don't like

Smith's heart's blood was the very

Had Gus been more collected, he might
probably have bided his timo and taken
his peace-destroyer unawares aud then
"tripped him," trusting to an intelligent jury and proof of a mental alibi to
bring him out all right. But he was
not sufficiently rational for that, and so
adopted the foolish plan of summoning
Smith to mortal combat.
Gus had a friend, Captain Borax, a
retired quartermaster, thoroughly versed
in points of honor. The captain was
just the man for the emergency; but, as
ill luck would have it, he was out of
town for tbe day.
That no timo might be lost, Gub demanded satisfaction by mail, directing
his challenge to the address indicated in

a time and place at which his friend,
Captain Borax, would be prepared to
confer with any friend of Smith's. At
the same time a brief message to Mrs.
Gurley explainel that important business necessitate- her husband's absence
for the next few days. Meanwhile,
Gus took up quarters at an obscure
country inn, leaving everything to the
management of the captain, whom he
had succeoded in finding at last, and
who, proud to be sought for such a service, promptly repaired to the appointed
rendezvous, where ho was punctually
met by a friend of Smith's. The preliminaries wero speedily settled, and a
meeting was arranged for the following

instead, without turning tbe word,

named ten paces as the distance! It was
plain the wretch was as bloodthirsty as
unscrupulous. Besides, Gus was no
shot, which Smith, judging from his
choice of weapons, no doubt was. How
mucti better, Gus began to think, to
havo fled forever from the scene, of his
unhappiness, or to have invoked the benign aid of the laws of South Dakota,
But it was too late now to retract.
From a troubled slumber, such as condemned criminals aro apt to fall into in
