SOKE OF THE PvLPIT UTTERANCES
jRv. Dr. Conn Discourses Upon the"Savlor'
Last Command."He Animadverts Upon
tho CatholicsSecond Anniversary of the
Young Men's AssociationCol. Dav
idson Delivers the Address at the House
The subject of the Eev. S. Conn'a dis
course yesteiday morning at the First Pres
byterian church, was "The Savior's last
command," the text being, "Go ye into all
the world and preach the gospel to every
creature," 16 Mark, 15 v. Dr. Conn first
described the circumstances under which the
mandate was given, adverting to the solem
nity and preciousnesa of parting woids.
Parting requests or parting commands are
tenderly sacied and binding he said. The
words of the text, ho said, were among the
last sajmgs of Iho Itedeemer, and
no doubt the very last to many who
heard them, and to all the last command.
The occasion was not only solemn
from the fact of its being a parting scene,
but doubly so from the great and honorable
responsibility which would, ere many days,
rest upon those upon whom was placed the
injunctionthe destinies of a world of ruined
men were to be committed into their hands
the cause which had bejen contemplated
with deep interest from the foundation of
the world by angels and patnaichs and
prophetswhich had brought the eternal
Bon of God from Heaven. The command,
he said, wai not addressed simply to the
apostles as such, but to the churchto the
church of that day and of this, and of all
In considering the words of the text the
preacher said the first thought was "what is
the message which is to be proclaimed
the text said "preach the gospel." After ex
plaining the term gospel, God-spello, he
showed by apt illustrations what is good
news or glad tidings, and deduced that no
better news or more joyful tidings could be
brought to a poor sin burdened suffering
world than the tidings of the way of salva
tion. This simple way, in words of scrip
ture, Dr. Conn put before his congiegation,
and then said that the injunction was to
preach Chi ibt in His person, character and
works in example and in his atonement
and priesthood in His three comingsHis
coming to bear our sin His coming by the
spirit as the comfortor and His coming in glo
rious majesty to judge the quick and the dead
and to establish his kingdom, which is
knowledge, and peace, and joy. They were
to prGach repentance and remission of sins.
They were to preach the whole gospel, and
the gospel only.
In the second place, he called attention to
the extent of the commission which Christ
gave to His apostles and to His chmch
they were to preach in all the world and to
every creatuie. The Jews alone had heard
the gospel preached, but now it was to be a
light to lighten the Gentiles and the glory
of His people, Israel. The word of God was
to go forth to men every nation, and kin
dred, and tongue, and peopleeveiy conti
nent, every island, every corner of the
v/orld was to hear the glad tidingB
of salvation. The injunction, he said,
was still in force, the Christian church is to
be a church of movement. Its journeyings
are to be co-extensive with the earth. Its
commission is only to terminate when the
last prodigal has been reclaimed to. his
home, when the kingdom of the world has
become the kingdom of our Lord and of His
The third point considered was that all
the world needs the gospel. He showed that
in all parts of the worldcivilized or bar
barousin China or Africa, man is the same
by nature, without knowledge, without hope,
without faith and without love. Wherever
is a child of Adam, whatever his color, there
is one whose heart is desperately wicked and
who needs the blood of Christ, the renewing
of the Holy Ghost and reconciliation with
God. He then drew vivid pictures of men
living in ignorance of saving grace aud
gospel teachings describing them as lives of
misery, wretchedness, degradation, cruelty
and suffering. He said that our home
world, alone with its daikness, its profanity,
its carelessness, its crimes and consequent
misery, call aloud for commisseration, but
he wished to call their especial attention to
the darkness of error and ignorance abound
ing in other worldsthe Catholic woild with
its eighty million souls sunk in the deepest
ignorance, the Mohamedan world of one
hundred and sixty millions and the eighty
millions of Greek and Eastern churches
with the truth overlaid by dangerous error.
Then there are the thousands upon thou
sands of Jews, scattered all over the world,
besides the eight hundred million of
heathens. After describing the pitiable
Btate of ignorance and superstitition of
these, he urged the necessity of missions, as
expressed in the sentence, "How shall they
believe in Him of whom they have not
heard, and how shall they hear without a
preacher." In the fourth place, he pointed
out the duty of every Christian in obeying
the mandate of the text, which he said was
as imperative upon the hearer as*the preacher
every Christian was commanded to spread
the good tidings, either personally or
by proxy. It mattered not how nar
row our means, we were enjoined to do
our utmost to send the good tidings which
had gladdened our hearts to our fellow man.
Every Christian can help in the work by
prayer and by contributions. Christ will
not work without us, nor answer prayers for
the coming of His kingdom while we go to
sleep over our duty and do not obey the
mandate of evangelization. May a new
spirit of obedience, of consecration and of
self forgetfulness, come into the church's
heart our own. Work, hope, prayerthese
three, and the victory is ours.
Young Men's Association.
At the House of Hope, last evening, the
service was in celebration of the second an
niversary of the Young Men's association,
connected with that church. After the usual
devotional exercises, the Rev. D. R. Breed
said that two years ago there was formed in
connection with the House of Hope an associ
ation of young men, which now numbered
some forty or fifty members. The object of
the association was social culture to get
acquainted with eaoh other and the pastor.
They had held private meetings of a liter
ary and social character, and had a series of
public lectures, all of wh'ch had been bene
ficial and instructive. He hoped that during
the summer the old members will not forget
their social gatherings of the past winter, but
that next fall the old members will all meet
again in happiness and health. The asso
ciation had selected and requested Colonl
J. H. Davidson to deliver the .anniversary
address, and that gent eman had kindly con
He then introduced the speaker, who said
f"adt be wamd cccupy their attention a little
while in considering the "Profitableness of
Godliness in this world." As far as it re
lated to a future life he would leave to theo
logians. By way of preface he gave Web
ster's definition of Godliness. He then
said he would show the promises pertaining
to this life, quoting, 1 Timothy, 6th ch. 6v.
38th Psalm, 14th v. 112th Psalm, 1st, 2d,
3d vs. 6th Matthew, 33 v. 10 Mark, 29th,
30th v. 84th Psalm, 11 v. 1 Tim. 4th ch. 8 v.
That Godliness is profitable in all things of
every day life, experience will show. That
the promises are fulfilled to the very letter,
nineteen centuries demonstrate. He alluded,
to Bob Ingersoll's teachings, and said that a
Christian's experience contradicts his theory
of good time here and risk the hereafter.
The speaker contending that a Christian's
I life is the happiest and most enjoyable.
I He said that, (1), Godliness
insured good health, both of body and mind.
(2) Success in business. (3) Highest enjoy
ment life. The rules of health laid down
in the bible were perfect and reasonable, and
those following them would need no quack
doctor to practice their disgraceful trade
upon them. If parents followed the dictates
ot holy writ they would not bring into the
world puny, sickly, mentally and bodily de
formed offspring. Godliness insures
success in business, he said,
because anyoneeven an infidel
would put more confidence and trust in a
conscientious Christian and Btrict integrity,
uprightness and honest dealing, will in the
end succeed. Trickery, sharp practice and
dishonesty, sooner r later, will lead to ruin
a dishonest man may steal his way to a
prison, a dissolute one sin himself into the
hospital or infirmary, but never into pros
perity or honor.
In the third place, that Godliness is the
greatest and highest enjoyment in this life.
He said, that the old sniveller who was
gloomy, and sad, and melancholy, groaning
and whining, was only a man who piofessed
more than he practicedhis religion is a
pretense, a humbug. Religion m.es glad,
joyous, happy, and our God is a God of
love aud kindness. The lecture was listened
to with deep attention by the large congre
gation of young people in attendance.
Something Should he Done to Prevent Its
There is no use in blinking the fact. Scarlet
fever is becoming alarmingly prevalent in St.
Paul, and the sooner the people earnestly
awaken to the simple fact, the sooner will
effective measures for its utter suppression
and eradication be accomplished. The GLO BE
yesterday intimated that the dire disease was on
the increase on Fort street (erroneously printed
"First street") and that vicinity. An there
is little wonder, when the following facts,
which the GLO BE ferreted out yesterday in the
interests of the public, are considered:
One of the lady teachers of the
Jefferson school, which is attended by
pupils from the neighborhood indicated
abovp, became aware that a boy
was constantly present in her department who
was a member of a family suffering from scar
let ev er. The lady told the boy to inform hiR
parents that he should remain at home until
the fever in his family had disappeared. Th
sensible remonstrance of the teacher was, how
ever, in vain, for the parents of the fever
stricken family contined to Bend the
boy to school. Driven by Her quite
natural and praiseworty anxiety for
the^ health of her charge, the teacher ex
plained the circumstances of the case to her
pupils, stating she had no authority to exclude
the boy from school, but requested the balance
of her flock to inform their guardians of the
facts, so that, if the childrens' protectors
deemed it expedient, the attendance
of other pupils might be discontinued.
She hoped, by this warning, her school might
be prevented from being conveited into a pest
house by the perverse obstinacy and unfeeling
selfishness of a single family, and the alto
gether commendable action of the teacher has
had the effect of deterring the attendance of
many of the pupils, but, it is understood, not
of the boy from the infected family.
And, now, these questions present them
selves: Whose business is this? I the teacher
has no authority in the premises, has the su
perintendent of the city schools no power to
act? And, last of all. whcie is the city health

MUBDER OF SMITH.
Some Important Witnesses round The
Men Who Drew the Body from the
Yet another link in the chain of evidence
surrounding the death of John D. Smith, of
Liver Grove township, was forged yesterday
by a GLOBE reporter. As far as the testi
mony, developed at the long delayed inquest
on Thursday last, shows it would appear that
Wallace Smith and Peter Anderson dis
covered the body on the side of
the road, at a distance, as the for
mer stated, of about four feet off
the road. "The same witness also said there
were marks to show he (the deceased) had
been drawn out of the road, and tracks
showed a team had passed, turning out of
The mystery regarding the body having
been moved and the wheels marks of the
team passing the spot after Smith's death
can now be explained. On the
night of^ the supposed murder, a man
of that neighborhood was quite sick, and
word was conveyed to this city to his rel
atives. The sick man was supposed to have
wandered from the house in a state of ment
al aberration, and, accordingly, a party was
made up to institute a search. This party
consisted of Mr. and Mrs. Sweeney, H. M.
Shearan and J. C. Murnane, who proceeded
south on the river road to Hastings.
Mr. Murnane was interviewed yesterday
by a GLOBE reporter. He said that rain
poured down in torrents on the night in
question, and pitchy darkness prevailed, so
a lantern was earned by the explorers. The'
whole distance was walked from
West St. Paul, Mr. Murnane and
Mr. Shearan taking turns in carrying the
lantern. When the spot was leached where
they discovered Smith's corpse, Mr. Mur
nane was slightly ahead, Mr. Shearan follow
ing with the lantern, while Mr. and Mrs.
Sweeney were in the conveyance. Murnane
was the first to discover the body, and the
party halted to make an examination, it
being at first thought that the corpse might
possibly be that ot the individual of whom
they were in search. The body was found
within the wheel tracks of the sandy
road, and was just getting cold. The time
was about 1:30 A. M. The cut upon the head
of the corpse was observed by
all present, but there were no indications
showing how death had been caused. Anxious
concerning the individual of whom the four
were in search, a consultation was held, and
it was decided to remove the body from the
road, in order that any passing team might
not run over it, and to give warning at the
next farm house. The first intention was to
have alarmed the basket-maker living in the
shanty near by, but it was finally concluded
to tell the people in the next farm house, as
those in the shanty might be implicated
the death, and then return for the body.
The corpse was lying upon its back
in the road befoie it was re
moved by Messrs. Murnane and
Shearan. The party then went on, and
their wagon tracks were those which were
testified to at the inquest as belonging to a
team which must have passed subsequent to
Smith's dropping upon the spot. None of
the party then discovered anything
that would show how the death had been
occasioned, or, if murder had been com
mitted, by whom the deed had been done.
Stopping at the next farm house, the alarm
was given, and the party proceeded to its
destination, and found the sick
man for whom the search had
been instituted, was all right. Mr. Mur
nane and his friends then started for the
spot where they had left Smith's body, and
found it had disappeared, and, judging the
friends of the deceased had meanwhile dis
covered and taken away the corpse, the
whole party came back to St. Paul.

An Incident in the Jin-owning of Captain
[Le Sueur Sentinel.]
A incident in connection with the search
is worth noting. Mr. Nash asserted from
the first that when his "baby boy" would be
found, one or both of his shoes would be
unlaced, as he had always instructed him to
do so if an accident in water should occur.
Sure enough, when the body was found, one
shoe was wholly unlaced. The brave lada
mere child of 1 0 yearshad preserved his
simple faith in parental advice and his re
markable heroism, even down to the last
moment of life and such a life ought not to
have been sacrificed in the manner it was.

We notice that at a meeting of the Re

week a list of twenty professors and teachers
were elected, and some discussion was had
that revealed the fact that at least one of the
professors, who was doing very little work,
objected to doing more. It has been appar
ent for some time that the university was
loaded down with too light a faculty. The
lack of ability in the professors, however,
seems to be made up in quantity. The uni
versity is a heavy expense to the State, and
it is about time that it was raised above the
level of an ordinary high school.

The granary and stable of Mr. E. A. Her
ning, three miles south of Eyota, was struck
by lightning on Sunday of last week. A
window was shattered, and a joist or scant
ling broken, a fragment of the latter striking
a fine Clydesdale stallion on the head. The
animal, which is valued at about $1,500, was
not seriously injured. There were about
3,000 bushela of wheat in the building which
did not take lire.
Those farmers who sold their wheat in the
fall and early winter received from 90 to 95
cents per bushel, and not only have had the
use of this money, which at a low rate would
be 3 cents per bushel, but there was no loss
from shrinkage, rottage, etc. The farmers
are now, four, five and six months later, re
ceiving from 95 cents to $1 for their wheat,
and tho question arises, how much have they
made by holding?Mantorville Express.
Mr. Grannis, of Lake City, was recently
called upon by one Charles Anderson, from
the Wisconsin side, who desired to pay for
some lumber purchased in 1870. Grannis
had forgotten the affair and had no record
of it in his books, but Anderson, saying that
he had had a hard time and never been able
to pay until now, insisted upon settling the
account with interest. Grannis finally took
the principal, but declined the interest, say
ing that the former was enough from such
an honest man.
