out to Chicago for a conference witl
Dr. D. K. Pearson with reference t
his offer of twenty-five thousand dol

Scherer secured from Dr. Pearsoi
even more generous and liberal condi

first made, indeed we understand tha
they are the most liberal upon whicl
he has ever bestowed his gifts. Th(

Dr. Scherer brought the good new:
that Hon. Andrew Carnegie will giv(
ten thousand dollars to the technologi
cal departmwnt of the college as sooi
as ten thousand dollars is added t<
the endowment fund.
The raising of ten thousand dollar
will not only secure the money of Mr
Carnegie, but will go far toward meet

it looks to us as if the raising of ter
thousand dollars by the friends of th(
college will give us twenty thousans
dollars toward fulfilling the generou:

Interesting Services at the Aveleigh
The evangelistic services it, prog
ress at the Aveleigh Presbyterian
church have grown in interest during
the week. The afternoon meetings
have been well attended and at night
the church lias been well filled. Rev.
R. G. McLees is a fervent speaker, but
the chief power in his sermons and
addresses is their spiritual force and
I the consciousness in his hearers that
there is a man.behind the message
who knows the truth he preaches. Rev.
F. H. Wardlaw, who was sick earlier
in the week came to Newberry on
Wednesday and now has charge of
the music. The pastors of the city
are attending the services and taking
part in them. The services will con
tinue through the week and on Sun
day. On Sunday night there will be
no service in the other churches.

. A NOTABLE -SERMON.
Man's Greed, Careaessness, Selfish
ness, Recklessness, Passion
i the Cause of Human Afflic
At the Lutheran Church of-the Re
deemer last Sunday morning, the pas
tor. Rev. W. L. Seabrook,.preached a
notable sermon, taking his text from
Job 15:11-13, (Revised Version)
"Are the consolations of God too
small for thee? And is the word of
small account that dealeth gently with
thee? Whither doth thy heart carry
thee away? And what do thy eyes
wink at? That thou turnest thy spirit
against God, and lettest such words
go out of thy mouth ?
The sermon was entirely extempo
raneous, and the report folowing gives
only in barest outline the thought of
After speaking of the two declara
tions heard during the previous week,
one in which God had been character
ized as cruel, and the other in which
it had been said that the dreadful ca
lamity had been sent of God upon the
-people of the Pacific slope in wisdom
and justice, as a punishment for their
sins, the preacher declared his hor
ror of such misconceptions of God.
There is little wonder when afflic
tions come, and men are told that it
is the will of God, that it is for them
to bow in patient submission, that the
heart protests. And well it may. The
&reatest need of mankind is an over
whelming, all pervading, realistic be
lief in the personal Jehovah, Jehovah
Christ, and aright conception of His
relation and attitude toward the indi
vidual man and to the race. In man's
thought of God he must reject every
surmise or opinion that is not in har
mony with the truth-so thrillingly ex
pressed in Browning's immortal line in
"Paracelsus" "God, Thou art Love
I build my faith on that.'" In order
to vindicate God's sovereignty and
reqognize His hand in the events of
life, it is not necessary to regard "the
estilence that walketh in darkness
and the destruction that wasted at
non day' as.mysterious dispensations
or visitations of His providence.
Man was not created for sorrow but
for joy. God's thoughts of man' are
"precious'' "thoughts.'good and not
of evil.'' When man was in harmony
with God, -he was in' harmony with
himself, and with nature. He was
placed amid conditions fitted to be-.
stow upon him perfect and everlasting
happiness. There was no illness, no
alamity, no death. By i;an came sin.
Where once was harmony, now there
is discord. ' Where once was order
now there is disorder. "By man came
death;'? and all sorrow, all the per
versions of instincts and passions, all
infirmities of the body and weakening
of infellect, all that culm'mates in
death, all "came by man.'' This is
not God 's order, God's purpose, God's
thought for man. Man is out of har
mony with nature because he violates
nature's laws. Back of every afflic
tion is human sin. It is to blaspheme
against the God of love, when a rail
road train is wrecked and its passen
gers hurled into eternity, to say that
it was wrecked by His hand, or that
the' awful destruction of life and
property-.in San Francisco was caus
ed by Him. Nine tenths of all the
losses, afflictions and sorrows of this
life are the direct result of human ex
travagance, human \grasping after
larger profits, human. greed, human
carelessness, human selfishness, hu
man recklessness, and. .of the other
tenth they are 'indirect cause. Take
the case of San Francisco by way of
iustration. The earthquake came.
it is true.4 But it came not without

-mighty forces of nature had strue
turally prepared themselves to resist
its power. The Board of Fire Insur
ance underwriters declared long ago
that it was a miracle that San Fram
isco was not swept from the faee of
the earth, "that .it was built to,
burn." It was currently reported
that in the construction. of a building
now being erected in Newberry, some
workmen were found laying bricks
one upon the other without mortar,
except a little on the outside. Suppose
that building should collapse, would- it
be a "dispensation of Providence?"
Or take afflictions of another charac
ter. An epidemic of yellow fever dec
imates the cities of the south. A
visitation of Providence, forsoth! A
visitation of Providence, forsooth! A
der against the sin of uncleanness.
