A WICKED PRACTICE.

SWEARING A PREVALENT VICE AMONG
AMERICANS.

ITrom Iho Highest to the Humblest There
Ts Shameless Guilt la This Matter Five
Keasons Why God's Name Should Not I2e
UbcmI In Vain.
At the Bloomiugdale lief armed church
Sunday, Juno 2'J, Rev. Madison C. Pe Peters
ters Peters chose for his topic "America's Poi Poi-nlar
nlar Poi-nlar Sin. The preacher's text was Ex Exodus
odus Exodus xx, 7, "Thou shalt not take the
namo of the Lord thy God in vain, for
the Lord vill not hold him guiltless
that tnktli his name in vain." The
preacher said :
A traveler in Russia was judged to
be a clergyman because he was not heard
to swear, all other Americans being
supposed to bo addicted to this wicked
practice. After Dr. Scudder's return
from India he heard a person using pro profane
fane profane language in the presence of his
.eon, and accosting the swearer the great
missionary said, "This boy was born
und brought up in a heathen land, but
in all liis life ho never heard a man
blaspheme his Maker until now. The
man apologized and moved away
ashamed. This vico has become so prev

alent as to deserve the distinction of be being
ing being called a utiticnal characteristic.
Its Urazen Impudence.
This vice Haunts itself before us witli
brazen impudence. The slanderer slyly
watches for an open ear and enjoins
secrecy, the thief is too cunning to steal
in the presence of witnesses, the lecher lecherous
ous lecherous man crawls to the honso of shamo
after da:k, but men swear publicly,
boldly and undauntedly.
!ntuv wo have five reasons vhy th
name of God should not bo used in
"vain :
1'hv.t. It is useless. Will swearing
pay? Is it a real value in character?
Does it deepen confidence? Why should
an honorable man have to add oaths to
confirm his word? Does swearing recom recommend
mend recommend a merchant's goods? Whero is the

roll oil tlie lips or blasphemy as though
they were speaking of some low vaga vagabond.
bond. vagabond. God! God! God! Yes, men
swear by the namo of God. God in
whose presence the highest and purest
seraphim veil their faces and cry in
notes responsive to each other : Holy
Holy Holy Lord God of Hosts

Fifth. Swearing is dangerous. The
third commandment is the only cue in
the decalogue to which is affixed the cer certainty
tainty certainty of punishment, "For the Lord
will not hold him guiltless that taketh
his name in vain." It was a capital
offense under the Levitical law (Leviti (Leviticus
cus (Leviticus xx, 10). The New Testament reitei
ates in paragraph after paragraph ami
chapter after chapter that profane swear swearers
ers swearers are accursed now and are to be for forever
ever forever miserable.
An Sternal Echo.
The oaths that you utter may die on
the air, but God hears them, and they
have an eternal echo. I beseech you, I
conjure you, break off thi3 useless, im impolite,
polite, impolite, cowardly, wicked and dangerous
habit ere the brittle thread of life
breaks and you are plunged into eternal
misery. Oh, let your oaths be turned
into supplications I Swearer, can you ever
again blaspheme such a God and Saviour
as this? Does not your conscience cry,
God forbid? Even so. Amen.

once a man who swore dreadfully in the
presence of others, but was rebuked by
a gentleman, who told him that it .n .n-cowardly
cowardly .n-cowardly for him to do in tho presence
of others that which he did not daro tt tt-by
by tt-by himself. "Ah," raid tho man,
am not afraid to swear at any time or in
any place." "I'll glxm you $10," Sai!
tho gentleman, "if you will go in the
village graveyard at 12 o'clock tonight
and utter tho same oaths you have jasr
uttered hero when you are alone with
God." "Agreed," said the man. "It's
'an easy way of earning $10. "Well,
you conio to mo tomorrow and say that
you have dono it, and the money is
yours. Ho was impatient for the mid

night hour. When the time came, he
hurried to the graveyard. Darkness in id
silence were brooding like spirits o'er
tho still and pulseless world. Beneath
him the many dead, above him pitch
darkness. Tho words, "alone with God, '
came over him with mighty power. A
deep sense of his monstrous folly and
heinous wickedness fell upon him like
the sudden pealing thunder of the mid midnight
night midnight storm. His further endeavors were
thwarted by the Invisible One. He could
go no further. Instead of carrying out
his purpose, acting rudely and saucily
with God; instead of blistering his
mouth with hot and sulphurous oaths, he
was humbled and, trembling, cried with
a loud voice, "God be merciful to me, a
sinner. Tho next day he went to the
gentleman and thanked him for what he
had done and said he had resolved nev never
er never to swear another oath as long as ho

lived.
Third. It is impolito. I am remind reminded
ed reminded of that incident of Abraham Lincoln,
who said to a person sent to him by one
of tho senators, and who in conversation
littered an oath: "I thought the senator
had sent mo a gentleman. I see I was
mistaken. There is the door, and I bid
you good day.
Profanity indicates low breeding. It
detracts from tho grace of conversation.
It is an evidence of a weak brain and
limited ideas.
Fourth. Swearing is wicked. It
springs from a mere malignancy of spirit
in man against God, because he has for forbidden
bidden forbidden it. As far as the violation of the
command of God is concerned the swear swearer
er swearer isf equally guiity with the murderer,
the unchaste person, the robber and the
liar. Whose is tfcis name .which men
