In the absence of Drs. Talmage and Sun

Like this supper, besaid.is tbe Saviour's
presentation of the gospel. His infinite
love has spread a feast for men. He has
opened the doors oT divine iiospitallty.
He has made ample provision for the
hungry, starving, dying millions of the
race, and has given -them invitation to
come and partake. It is a great occasion
and a great feast.
Dr. Wightman thea went tiu to .speak of
tbe "vanity of satisfying earthly wants if
the sp'ntual needs of the soul are n eglected.
And to this feast which satisfies these
-wants all f us are bivited.
0b, brother sinners," the minister con
cluded, "you may pensb if jdu vdll, but
situated as you are you can only perish
by your own perversity. Dying in unbelief
you -will die with tbe bread or life within
your Teach, and the deep damnation of
your death will be your own work. I ba n

Dr, Stptarls Sermon on Faith at
Fourth Presbyterian Church.
Tbo Rev. D. II. Stewart, of Arkansas
City, Kan., preached a "very Interesting
sermon at tlie rourtb Presbyterian C'horcb
yesterday morning on tho subject of
"FaiUi," in which be argued that all good
was accomplished through belief In the
promises of God
The reverend speakei look bis text from
Esther, 1V;14 "And wlio kiioweth whether
Uiou art come to tbe kingdom for such a
time as this " Tbe wise men, be said,
held 'hat there was a time for all things,
and the truth of this was exemplified in
revcral ways; for instance, in the creation
of the world, tlie coming of Christ, the
descending of the Holy Ghost, the working
of the Reformation by Luther, the work
of Moody and Sankey in Chicago, tbe or
ganization of the Society or Christian En
deavor, and many other things wliich will
live a6 long as time. Dr. Stewart used the
story of Queen Esther and Mordlcai b
illustrate his argument, to demonstrate the
power of faith.
It is tbe duty of all to rely with nn abid
ing faith uiion the .fulfillment of all the
promises of God. 'oneBehas made ever
have been or ever will be broken This, Dr.
Stewart &aid, should be plain to all who
watch lhe tjlumphal march of the ohuiqh,
for the moie we study this cha more readily
we can -seetha fultillitisntof eveiy promise.
There is, however, a point to which all
should give senou-j thought and j-ampst at
tention, and that; is, the Uev- Mr. Stewart
.said, tUafc we .should take advantage of
all the means given us by God to avail
ourai'lv-Ch of tbe opportunities Be gives us.
God in Bis goodness does not Intend that
wesliould be idle, but, having given iin the
means and pointed out the way, intends
that we bbould help ouuelres. Thebe op-poiluuitle-s
lie presents at the proper time,
and it is Bis desire that wesliould accom
plish them by tiie means Be has placed
at our command.
Every one of us has .some work planned
out for us, and if we do not accomplish
it, the speaker said, it is our own fault:
for God has given us the pppprtunttv and
tbe means. One hundred years ago the
opportunities offered were iiuite different
from tliof presented to us today. Then
there was no young people's work, no
Christian Endeavor, no niKsionaiy socle-,
ties. Nevertheless ev ytlilng is In its
own proper time nnd it is our dutv to take
advnrtage of theib and work them out
according to pod's dehiie.
In conclusion Dr. Stewart said there
.arc many who do not take up ine.worv
i.-hich God has worked out for them.
This is very much to be -regretted, for
then it is their own fault if they lose the
COill'LETE IX CHRIST.
JDr. Anderson, of Ohio, Pleaches ut
IteV. J. M Anderson, D. D-, orColunibus,
Ohio, occupied the pulpit or the Metro
pohtau Presbyterian Chuich, at the corner
of Fourth and B streets southeast, yester
day morning. Rev- Dr. laiccock, the
pastor, is away ou his biimmer -vacatiou
ami Dr. Anderson is filling Jils jilace for
Dr. Anderson spoke Jrom Golos-.ians,
llJLO, "Ye nre complete in Rim." He
said in bubstance:
Tlie transformation and formation of
liuman character Is the .great work of the
Gospel. This work the apostle likens unto
tho crectiou of a building, and to be
.accomplished by following a certain plan
There is no work grander in conception
or nobler in execution than the building
of Christ-like characters for eternity.
But it is a difficalt task, for sin has
brought confusion and death into the
world. Hence the necessity or following
a perfect plan.
God said to Moses, when about to erect
tlie tabernacle. -Pee that they make all
tilings according to the pattern showed
tbee in the mount." God was tlie archi
tect and drew tlie plan, and Moses was
the builder, and must obey strictly, if
the building was to be symmetrical So
Paul was teaching the church at Colosee
that their salvation was from God, and
urglnE the members to follow- closely the
great rule and pattern that He had placed
before them. They had received Christ
at the b"girining by simple faith, but
bad become bewildered by raise teachers,
who taught them to add to their new
raith much of their old traditions. The
apostle rushed to their reicue, and urged
them that, as they bad "received Christ
Jesus, tho jord, so walk in Him; looted
and built up in Him; for in Him dwelletn
all tbe fulness of the Godhead bodily,
eud ye are complete in Him."
The speaker then pictured human charac
ter as having -dimensions, length, breadth,
depth and height, and showed that as
Christ's life bad these propmtluna, so
Chr.bti.ui character to btand the test of
judgment must be developed accordingly.
The soul's salvation begins and ends with
Christ. Christ's righteousness is the
ground of the believer's acceptance with
God. His Holy Spirit regenerates and
sanctifies Ills truth enlightens and builds
up. The believe i 's first breath of new
life is when he truly receives Christ, and
his last bieath will be when separated
from Christ, which will be never, for Be is
the Alpha and Omega.

That Follow a Pnre Heart.
The regular evening church service and
the Epworth League meeting waf combined
into one last night at Foundry M. E.
Church, and after an interesting period or
pravcr and sqng by tbe leaguers, Rev.
Lucien Clark, the pastor, made a short
addrass He selected for bis subJect'Create
in me a clean heart, O God," and said in
"Some of the most corrupt men are
found among the most cultured. Men
arc wicked because their hearts are wicked,
and all the study and refinement in the
world will not help them unless they ex
perience a change of heart. We hear of
some who prate of 'example.' Example
not everything. Let us not turn to
others, but Imbibe the eternal truths
from the infinite Father. If a fountain
is pure, the drinkers will receive health
and happiness; but, if the waters are im
pure, death and destruction.
"The words of our mothers proceed from
the heart, for, '0ut of the heart the
mouth spcaketh," so if our hearts.be pure
the words mu6t be golden ones. A clean
heart will enable us to understand the
beauties or the kingdom of God, and all
the Iwills of the soul will ring because ot
the clean heart, which is the only pass
port to heaven. Men have sought for re
demption by education, study and the study
or science, and they have failed. God
alone can give ub a clean heart, and I
urge you, eatb and every one, to bcareh
diligently, and the peace which will enter
your souls will pass all understanding."
