It is a habit in this country
for builders and others to obstruct
the sidewalks with lumbqr, bricks,
etc., during the day and leave them
there at night without placing a
light for the pedestrian to sec tint
there is something to be avoided and
so escape breaking his shins in an
unwary moment. In other countries
the law compels the placing of a
light in such cases under heavy
penalties and damages. It should
be so here.
About (5 a. in. on Monday one of
those tides or tidal waves peculiar to
these islands was noticed in the har
bour. It was then low tide but the
water in the harbour suddenly rose
about 12 inches and retiied leaving
thu harbour bare all around the
King's boathousc. It rose again
about the same height and again re
tired. The rising could be noticed
by the way in which the yachts an
chored in that vicinity swung round
against the wind.
A GERMAN SERMON.
The following is a translation of a
sermon preached in German by
Hcrr Candidat F. Richter on Sun
day at Mr. Glade's house. . The
text was taken from the seventeenth
verse of the seventeenth chapter of
St. John: " Sanctify them through
thy truth, thy word is truth."
"There exists a power, said the
li'eachcr, which, is a comforter to
every heart, however heavy-laden,
relieving it from, all worldliness and
This is the power of prayer
whether practiced in church, family
or closet. How much would not
the world be improved if it had not
forgotten how to pray and if prayer
were ever present in our lives, schools
How often do we read in the
Bible of Christ's prayers to his Fa
ther. When undertaking his jour
ney to Gethseinane he prays for the
love and compassion of the Father
and when leaving his disciples he
prays, Sanctify them through thy
truth, thy worcVis truth. I prayinot
that thou shouldst take them out of
the world, but that thou shouldst
keep them from the evil therein. So
also he prays for us Neither pray I
for these alone, but for them also
which shall believe on me through
their word. This prayer in the
seventeenth chapter of St. John is
the only one given in full and from
it we take the seventeenth verse to
day! Let us therefore examine
closer into the manner in which this
sanctiflcation through the truth is '
brought about. Sanctified were
considered the Israelites, the temple,
and everything pertaining to wor
ship therein, Being sanctified these
things were set apart from the world
but we can not now use this word
sanctify in the original way for our
lives run in a different channel and
we' arc contiually culled ,upon to
mingle with the world and worlcl
liness. But.is.it necessary to isolate our
selves and lead a life of idleness.
Look at the example of our Saviour,
did he withdraw from the world ?
No, his life was spent right among
the people and when his work was
completed did he not bend his dis
ciples out into the world to preach
and make known his word ? But
he also asked that God should keep
them from the evil thereof. Let us
therefore pray that we inay be
delivered from the evils, and tempta
tions of the world, for although the
fewest, of us are apostles we are
obliged to meet worUlliiicss ou
every hand and our outward lives
tend to lead our thoughts from the
oiaviour, therefore our inner lives
demand the strictest attention. If
we consider our lives wo will sec
that without prayer and watchful
ness we daily learn to look lighter
moil sin and fail entirely in making
this life a trial of our belief. Yes,
we must acknowledge that we arc
too weak for sin and the world
therefore we must pray for strength
from above for lie alone can give
the power and conquer the world for
us and showed his willingness by
mingling and sending his son among
He gave us the word that in the
belief thereof we might bo saved.
The truth is contained in the word
of God which the Saviour explained.
To this person wc must hold and in
our love for him wc learn the love of
Recognizing that his disciples
were weak the Saviour promised to
send them the Spirit of Truth. Let
us then praj' for this Spirit and
to be sanctified thereby that we also
may become one of his blessed con
gregation to live uitli him in his
glory for it is written for their sakes
