Vigorous. Augustana Swedish Lutheran church,
the oldest Scandinavian church in Min
neapolis, will celebrate its fortieth an
niversary next April with several days
of festivities. In view of this, and the
additional fact that the congregation
is now one of the largest in the city,
a brief history of the church is of in
The Scandinavian Evangelical Lu
theran Augustana church, as it was
originally called, was organized April
16, 1866. It was started with fourteen
members. Eev. P. Carlson, a pioneer
missionary, then stationed in Carver
county, who began to preach in Minne
apolis in 1858, was the organizer of
the church. Mr. Carlson is still living.
85 years of age, making his home at
the Deaconess' institute at Omaha.
Neb. It is hoped to have him attend
the fortieth anniversary next April.
In the early days both Norwegians
and Swedes united in worship in the
one church, tho the service was always
conducted in Swedish. In 1868 the
Norwegians withdrew from the congre
gation, which had then become large,
and organized a Norwegian church for
themselves. It was also in this year
that the original church erected its first
building. It was located at Thirteenth
avenue S and Washington avenue, a
frame structure which seated 500 peo
ple. It was a great church building for
those days. Later, the Church "was sold
to the St. John's English Lutheran con
PROFESSOR FRANK DICKSON, MISS BERTHA CHAPMAN, DAUGHTER OF
OF J. WILBUR CHAPMAN, AND HARRY MAXWELL.
It is still in' use for religious purposes,
now being located on Fifth street, op
posite the courthouse, and is occupied
as a mission for the Hennepin Avenue
So large was this church for its pio
neer time that when the president of
the church conference first visited it,
he took the congregation to task for
erecting an edifice which he considered
entirely too large.
Present Church Built in 1883.
The church at Seventh street and
Eleventh avenue S, now used by the
Augustana congregation, was ereeted in
1883 with a seating capacity of 2,000.
The first regular pastor of the origi
nal church was Eev. J. E. Sjoquist, who
served for one year. He was succeeded
in 1873 by Rev. C. A. Evale, who, in
1875, went to Chicago, where he still
successfully holds the pastorate. Eev.
J. Ausland came next and served the
congregation faithfully till 1878, when
he died. Rev. J. Ternestedt then took
the guidance of the parish. He con
tinecf at its head till May 28, 1888,
when Eev. O. J. Petri became pastor,
and has ever since held the position.
Under direction of Rev. Carl J. Petri,
Augustana church hag greatly grown
and prospered. The congregation now
numbers 1,750. There is but one larger
Protestant congregation in the city,
that of Westminster, which is but little
greater in' numbers.
Larger Home Discussed,
The Augustana congregation is con
templating enlarging its present edifice
with a wing built on the Seventh street
side. Or perhaps a new church alto
gether may be erected. The matter is
now simply being discussed and noth
ing definite has as yet developed in the
way of building pla'n^.
When Rev. Mr. Petri took charge of
the parish there hung over it a mort
gage of $15,000. Five years ago the
last cent of this was paid. The church
property, worth $42,000, is now clear of
all debt. Last year there was installed
a new pipe organ at a cost of $5,000.
The church has a Swedish Sunday
school which meets at 12:15 every Sun
day with 700 students* An English
Sunday school meets at 9 a.m., with 300
scholars. The Young People's society
has 150 oW its register. There are two
ladies' societies, the Willing Workers,
with seventy-five members the Ladies
Aid, with 140.
There is also the deaconess work,
.which is in charge of Sister Hulda Hult
quist. A citv mission home for girls is
a leading part of this work. The
church owns a comfortable .cottage at
Eleventh avenue and Eighth street S.
The Augustana church has been the
parent of a number of mission's which
have since become separate, self-sup
porting parishes. One of these is Eben
ezer church in South Minneapolis, es
tablished in 1888. Another is Zion
church, at Thirty-third street and Pills
bury avenue. Another now .independ
ent church, was established in North
east Minneapolis. A mission was
started last year in Southeast Minne
apolis. The Bohemian Lutheran
thurch on the flats is an edifice original-
ly built atfd established by Augustana
The Augustana congregation has also
done much for its young people who
were inclined to devote their lives to
church work. The parish has sent at
least a dozen young men to theological
schools, most of them having graduated
and are now serving itf the ministry.
!%re young ladies have been sent to the
Deaconess Institute at Omaha. Sister
Hultquist is one of these. The church
has accomplished great things in
late years, and the outlook for future
accomplishments is even brighter.
EPISCOPAL MISSION ENDS
Church and Choir Unite for Final Serv
ice at St. Mark's..
This evening brings to an end the
Episcopal mission co-ordinate with the

opportunity not only to see the church
service at its best, but to thank per
sonally Archdeacon Webber, whose in
structions and sermons during the mis

the Episcopal churches of the city as.
A Sermon for Today
"The Good Time Coming."
HENRY F. COPE.
Jesus Into Galilee preaching the gospel
of the kingdom of God.Mark 1., 14.
UMANITT has always believed In the
coming of the kingdom of God. It
has always looked for i day when
discords should cease, when the will
of the loving Lord of all should be the law
for all. It has never at heart believed that
oppression, injustice, and the suffering that
springs from selfishness and sin were normal
to us could ever be right, or were even irrem
ediable. Deep in us all there Is the conviction
that there is In this world a power that- works
regation, which used it for some time. I for righteousness, for peace, for higher forma
of living, and that happiness is but harmony
with that power.
At some time every man sees the vision of
the better times coming No matter how dark
today may be tomorrow dawns brighter, with
some ancient wrong righted, some old abuse
gone forever, some tyrant dead, and some new
and fairer, holier things begun. To the normal
heart each day seems to bring at least a little
lift in the great life of this old world. The
past proves it. The dreams of our fathers have
come true better things than they even dared
to hope have been accomplished. An honest
review of history is a decided antidote for
No longer can we be content to believe that
the universe Is the plaything of the devfl, or
hold a doubt as to the ultimate Issue of the
conflict of the ages. To a world steeped in
the cynicism that said the gods are dead and
hope la but folly, Jesus came with the good
news of a God still on his throne, of a great
Father of us aU loving and working for the
good of all. He has taught the ages the eternal
and unconquerable might of the good. He was
the apostle of hope hungry hearts turned to
him and he fed them with happiness.
He did not talk of better things in some other
world, of a good time coming In the days we
might not see beyond the grave. This king
dom of heaven was something real, immediate,
simple, substantial. So practical and present
was it that the people who preferred to jpost
pone the realization of their religion to some
other world were shocked, offended, and aroused
But to men then and to men today there
come times, many and often, when we most of

Beginning Nov. 19, Dr. Chapman will
attempt the evangelization of the entire
state of New Jersey, commencing the
revival work in twenty-two different
cities at the same time, and keeping it
up with some seventy-five meetings
daily for four weeks. The state" which
is the home of American industrial com
bines will see a combine of workers for
the church and the things of God such
as even the most sanguine men of the
ministry have never before dreamed.
For four weeks in New Jersey, from
50,000 to 100,000 individuals will have
opportunity to hear "the old, old
story," and be brought by the thou
sands into the communion of Christian
fellowship and active church life.

At the Commercial club Tuesday
Dr. Chapman, in speaking of the non
denominational character of the religi
ous movement, said that the churches
appeared to be getting together. As for
himself he represented the Presby
terian church, but he made nothing of
that in his work.
In Atlanta, Ga., however, In the won
derful campaign there, some credit
seemed to be given to the Presbyterian
church. Two old daTkey clergymen were
discussing the matter. One of them
stated his adherence to the Presbyterian
church which had done so much for
his people in the "norf." The Metho
dist brother stuck, however, on the doc
trine of election. He said if he could
get around that he would become a

every day and the de Lord votes for
you every day and den de way you

Dr. Chapman said he had been in the

heights and misty depths of the sub

the whole matter for him.

0 autumn, paradoxical,
Best season of the year,
When coal begins to boom in price
We know you're summers near.
1 bail your snows and frosty blows
With loud exultant cry.
For now the flies begin to dnck
The ducks begin to fly.
Trees pack their wardrobes In their trunks,
They heed the winter's call,
For ere the fall begins to leave
The leaves begin to fall.
Ho, sausages and griddle cakes,
They make you feel divine.
For now it Is you pine for pork,
Tho not for porc-u-pine.
So gleam again the fodder fields
And pUe the pumpkins high
For tho, as food, squash may seem punk,
It's never pnnk-in-ple.
THE BURNING BUSH
The maple flames with crimson leaves,
And as the fitful breezes sigh,
Like rippling tongues of fire
They lick the edges of the sky.
Tet all its color and Its glow
Is wrapped in winter's winding sheet,
And all its pomp must pass away
For springtime's resurrection sweet.
The mysteries of life and death
It' holds, for those- who turn to seas
So yearly' from the burning bush,
The Lord God speaks to man.

BT THE REV. WILLIAM WALSHAM HOW
[William Walsbam How, bishop of Bedford,
was born at Shrewsbury, England, Dee. 13, 1823.
His best work as a minister of the Church of
England was done at Kidderminster and later
amongst the destitute In the East End, London.
Altho he did not begin to publish bis poetical
compositions until he was well advanced in
years his hymns are already well known, a num
ber of them being found in all the standard
hymnals. In the English church his songs for
children have been acceptable. But, in all lands,
the one given below Is by far the most popular
of all his compositions. It is usually sung to
the tune of "St. Hilda." Its theme is beau
tifully Illustrated In Holman Hunt's celebrated
painting, "The Light of the World."]
O Jesus, thou art standing
Outside the fast closed door,
In lowly patience waiting
To pass the threshold o'er
We bear the name of Christians,
His name and sign we bear
O, shame, thrice shame upon us,
T^ keep him standing there!
O Jesus, thou are knocking
And lo! that hand is scarred.
And thorns thy brow encircle,
And tears thy face have marred)
O love that passeth knowledge,
So patiently to wait
O sin that hath no equal,
So fast to bar the gate.
O Jesus, thou are pleading
In accents meek and low
"I died for you, my chUdren,
And will ye treat me so?"
O Lord, with shame and sorrow
We open now'the door
Dear Savior, enter, enter.
And leave us nevermore!
Honest prayer kills pride.
Rites have, done little for the right
Killing time Is throwing life away.
Trimmed truth does not improve Its appear
Atheism Is simply moral anarchy.
The dominance of one church will not euro
the difference of the many.
The only thing that makes any man superior
to another is his service.
No church is rich unless the poor sit in
Ecclesiastical log rolling furnishes the devfl
with plenty of fuel.
As soon as the minister becomes a mendicant
the church loses a man.
The smaller a man's line the larger will be
his Busy sign.
The time to be most wary of new sin is when
you bury an old one.
Tour opinion of life may be Vnt a reflection
of life's opinion of you.
Ton are not sure of being right with God
because you are wrong with every one else.
The man who has no mind of his own is
anxious to give every one a piece 'of it.
It does not make the saints tender hearted
to keep them In hot water.
The less a man thinks of his virtues the
greater their value.
One of the poorest wsys of getting to know
people is finding out things about them.
Many a church Is praying for more consecra
tion when it needs to put more in the collection.
A man's diligence in business Is religious In
proportion as his religion Is a diligent busness.
Ton are not lkely to get to heaven by Inching
It that way on Sunday and hot footing it the
other all the week. Henry F. Cope.

SALE OF BIBLES
EFFECT OF REVIVAL NOT FELT Hff
Dealers Believe, However, that Within
a Few Weeks Demand for Bibles Will
Grow Surprisingly, as Converts Seal
ize Their Need, First, of Instruction
from the Book of Books.
The present revival has not influenced
the sale of Bibles and devotional works
in Minneapolis in any degree up to date.
This is the testimony of Minneapolis
booksellers, who laid in an unusually
large supply of religious literature and
have not had any more demands than
usual. However, they are not antici- f:
pating any loss, since they believe that
the course of a few weeks there will
be an unprecedented run on the de-.
partments devoted to religious litera
ture, and they will probably have to
send in new orders to be able to supply
the demand. It will take some time,
they say, for the churches and Sunday
schools to organize Bible classes, which
is probably the greatest source of the
Bible seller's revenue, and it will take
some time also for the new converts
to realize that what they need most
during the "pilgrim's progress" is
study, and hence a Bible.
There was a good deal of difficulty in
the way of ascertaining just how large
the average daily and weekly sales of
Bibles are, and what the approximate
value of annual' sales, for the reason
that in the accounts of booksellers the
sales of various books are not kept sep
arate, but all are lumped together as
daily sales. Acording to the opinion
of salespeople who actually handle the
sales, there is great variety in the
amount of sales of devotional books-in
the different stores. One store "makes
an average sale of Bibles of two ox
three a day. Another sells from $6,000
to $7,000 worth a year. A third sells
probably $10,000 worth of Bibles alone.
Most of them agree that there are more
Bibles sold annually than any other
books, not excepting Shakspere and
Longfellow, otherwise the two best sell
ers in American bookstores. The pro
prietor of the largest Bible store in the
city said emphatically that the sale of
Bibles had increased 40 per cent in the
last two years. "And everybody
knows," he added, "that there are
more Bibles sold in the world than any
other book. The reason probably is that
people are beginning to appreciate the
book for its literary and poetic value
as well as for its splendid system of
All sellers agree that there is a large
ly increased sale of expensive Bibles at
Christmas time, as they are popular
gifts. Hymnbooks are not taken into
account, since at the present time the
evangelists are carrying their _. own'
hymnals, a particular kind that is be
coming popular, which the bookstores
do not have in stock yet. Ministers
from the country, it is true, have been
interested in religious works recently,
and have bought many books, but that
does not alter the fact that the revival }f
has not as yet accomplished practical
results in the way of Bible buying,
since books are their business. Book S
sellers are still awaiting the harvest.
MAN ANGEL VS. GIRL ANGEL
Sculptor Borglum Has Raised a Prob
lem that Will Not Down.
Sculptor Borglum, whose female an
gels had to give way to angels of the
male persuasion in the Church of St.
John the,Divine, New York, has raisad &i
a problem which will not down. Tho
anonvmous gentleman, in sidewhisksrs
who pointed out in the first instance.
that Mr. Borglum had misconceived th*\-
sex of the angelic family has discreetly
removed himself from the foreground
of the dispute. This is well. It was
the only safe course. Tho his point _was
technically well taken, it cannot re
main the established view that the typi
cal angel is a man. It is impossible,
first, because the women wouldn't stand'
for such a ruling, and second, because
the men folks would hardly be happy
in that conclusion.
We take it that in the present state
of woman suffrage the women, smart-'
ing under man-imposed limitations,
would be slow to yield any part of thai
celestial superiority which is symbolic
jall portrayed by .wings. On the other
hand, the man-angel is a survival of
the rough, coarse times when the whis
kered folks claimed everytning worth
while. Today men are more gallant,
as well as more frankly honest. Every
man knows ho is not an angel, and lifts
only dim prospects of becoming one.
But what man does not know that
woman, lovely woman, is the^ perpetual,
recruiting ground of the winged and
loving throng who gild and glorify the
world? The man-angel is aU right o.t
give balance to the .celestial scheme
but it's the woman-angel every tium
that commands the tender regard of
