TALMAGE IS ELOQUENT.
THE GREAT DIVINE IS PLEASING
TO A LARGE AUDIENCE.
He Tells of His Journey to Europe
and the Orient-Of Nicholas II
and W. E. Gladstone.
To give but a brief account of a lec-
ture delivered by T. DeWitt Talmage
is aii injustice.
It is an Injustice to the speaker, a
injustice to the reader and an injustice
to the lecture. Consequently a Tal-
mage sermon is always given its due
merit by being given in full. But
space will not permit here.
Dr. Talmage was greeted last even-
lug by one of those audiences that
generally greets this great man when-
ever his voice is heard.
After a formaa .introduction Dr. Tal-
mage began his lecture on his trip
around the world by saying a ninee
days' journey landed him at the Ha-
waiian Islands. le described their
beauty, their grandure, their fruits
and products and the stability of their
new republican government..
He next told of his visit to New
Zealicndanti le wonderfuei scndt f
Australia. Here lie dwelt at some
lengthO inthe glorious future of this
beautiful island far in the Pacitic.
Arriving at Ceylon and India he told
of the beauties of the Hindoo temples,
the costliness of their adornment and
the stately grandure of their icipres-
siveness. Ite told of the cruel atro-
cities of the lindoos to the mission-
aries in a manner as only Dr. Talmage
can tell it. He told of the beauties of
the ancient Hindoo tombs, of their
composition, their ucagnificence, their
Dr. Talmage next related Isis smeet-
ing with Czar Nicholas It at his is-
perial palace in St. Petersburg. He
told of the pleasant and goodly nature
of the czar, his majestic form, his
stately stature, his maclines of char-
acter, and his Christian home. He it
was that was born to rule, he it is that
is fitted to govern.
Dr. Talmage next told of his visit to
Moscow. How-at sunset lie heard the
ringing of the famous bells of that
city. Standing on a tower with bells
around him ringing and bells below
him ringing and bells from tice 1,400
towers of Moscow all reverberating
their sweet tintinabulations was a sen-
sation awful, sublime, majestic. And
as the sun setting in the west cast its
parting streamer upon the golden tur-
rets of those 1,400 towers it brought
to the imagination of this great and
goodly man the vision of the burning
Leaving Moscow Dr. Tahage next
shook hands xith the "Gra"n old
man" William E. Gladstone. He told
ihow ie and Mr. Gladstone ran beside <
each other in the latter's gardens and
amused themselves by living Glad-1
stone's favorite dog return sticks as
Mr. Gladstone would spit upon them
and throw them far out upoi the lawn.
Next was his return to America.
Yes, said Dr. Talmage, all tice iactiocs
of the earth have I visited yet none
are so lovely as Accerica, America.

It has been a long time since an
audience in University Hail has been
more completely captivated than it
was at the address of Booker T. Wash-
ington yesterday afternoon. Every
bit of available space in the lower
floor as well as a goodly part of the
gallery was filled. 'resident Angell
introduced the distinguished educator,
who then spoke for an hour on the
"Elevation of the Negro Race." His
address, interspersed at frequent in-
tervals, with amusing incidents and
witty sayings, was a strong one and
the audience broke out time after
time with tutuos applause, and it
was only with difficulty that President

the institute primarily one of manual
training. The boys are taught in
scientific lines, and tice study of the
classies is avoided. The girls are in-

worthy students of either sex to work
Speaking of the elevation of his fel-
low-uegroes he said that it was the
duty of the north to help the south
and see that leaders were created to
help on the cause. "The condition of
the negro in the south," said Mr.
Washington, "is deplorable. Eighty-
five per cent work on plantations, and
three-fourths of them live on mort-
gaged land. nut the condition is not
such that the problem of uplifting is
hopeless. We are trying to undo in

centuries. The negro of Alabama is
