A frightful accident occurred this morn

on 1'enii street, from tlie effects of which
Martin KtncMtr will ce taiuh lose his l'fe.
Kenchler is anight watchman at the

happened In the brevveij there is

the water hot enough. stepped oj a boaid

Tlie board on which he was standing was
wet, and he slipped and
l,.l f.tO 1 - t'lIOM,
into the boiling water. He was completel
submerged for an instant, but he soon
raised his head above the surface of the
simmering wate'. He grasped the side of
the tub and, with a might effort, dragged
himself out. Ills cries soon brought to his
relief other workmen In the estab
lishment who did all the possibl
could for lil.n He had on
heavy woolen underclothes and h s eut're
bod was, in effect, wiappeJ in scalding
cloths. even after he had clambered from
tlie tub Willi" his fellow wo.kmen were
caring for him a message had b-en sent for
l)r A. and C. W. Uunlap. and they came
in baste. Before their arriral, howeer.
the men had removed lienehler's under
shirt, and in doing so the had stripped
slll.Hls Ot skin tl MtslI
from his anus and upper part of his bud.
The poor fellow was suffering horrib'e
agon and the phsicians hastened to do
all in their power to alleviate his pain
His pantaloons were removed with
gieit care, so that the skin
was not taken from his lower
luabs. He presented a sickening sight,
however. His bod was a solid blister
from heat to heels, and parts of tlie tlesh
had actuall been cooked. The physi
cians attended to his injeties itiickl, but
careful!, and had him con
veyed at once to his home

and that there was scarce! a possibiiit of
hisrecoer. So much of the skin sur
face had been destroyed that the very
imtortant functions of the skin
were undone and the probabilit , therefore,
wa that the patient would not recoer.
Mr. Kenchler is tlurt -two ears old and
has a w if e and one child. He is a brother

the second churih w as established and soon
became a prosperous organization. For
neirl a ear the establlshinent of a third
church has ln-en considered and the idea
has recently come to full maturity.
The laying of the corner stone of the
Third Evangelical Lutheran church took
p'ace Sunday afternoon, beginning at 4
o'clock. Thediy opened with a light rain
falling, but during the afternoon it cleared
up some. Just M fore and during the time
most of the exercises were going on, it
rained some. Xevertheless COO or S00 peo
ple were gathered at the jtlinest corner
of Center and Liberty streets to witness
the ceremonies of the corner stone lav
ing. T he masons had not progressed as
well as wis expected, but the corner next
the intersection of the streets had been
built up so as to relive, tlie cornerstone.
This stone was lox 17'jJ4 inches and was
the gift of Mes$r rish.tCrisL It was
laid with its brndest face towards Center
-treet. On ihe LUWty street face was cut
the .' te "18S7. The stone is suitable for
use again in a more permanent building, in
vv Inch case the new date can be cut on the
Center stieet side.

The subject of the subjoined obituary.
the Kev. Samuel t illlams, was pastor of
the First Baptist church In this city during
the "sixties " Among the older citizens of
Springfield he will be remembered as ore
of the most ardent abolitionists in the
country. The following was sent to the

where Kev. Williams died:
Hi iiui.! i , X. Y.. Sept. IP, 1S87.
The Kev. Smiuel Williams, a veteran
Baptist minister, an old time abolitionist,
and a staunch and life-long temperance ad
vocate, died suddenly, Tsl W, at his resi
dence, 1!S To upHus avenue, at 0 o'clock
a. m last Thursday. He leaves a widow
and four childre i. the wives of Charles T.

Williams of Xew Brighton, Pa , and Allen
S Williams of Brooklyn The deceased
was a valued member of the Emanuel Bap
tist church of this city. Mr. Williams num
bered among his friends, llenrv Clay, Fred
Douglass. William Lloyd Garrison. Wen
dell Phillips, and other public men nf gen
erations past and present He preached
the abolition of human slavery from the
pulpit of the First Baptist church of Pitts
burg, w hich church henrganized fifty ears
ago, and from which he will be buried Sun
da aftern'xm. For Ills feirless advocacy
of abolition lie suffered threats and perse
cution, but the only result was to make him
an effective engineer on the underground
railroad Mr. imam was one of the or
ganize! s of t he Excise league and prohibition
party in King's count, and had voted a
s-'Pirate prohibition ticket for sixteen
ears. The cause of death was heart dis
ease, supplementing a kidney and liver
complaint. A brief, simple service was
held at :t o'clock Friday afternoon The
family took the remains to Pittsburg at 7
o'clock p m
His monument has stood in tlie beautiful
Allegheny cemetery there for over a quar
ter of a century. It Is a great granite
pulpit bearing an open Itible and a hand
(minting to the words, "I am the Resurrec
tion and the Life."
Almost the last words of the deceased
were that tlie only things that seemed of
any account in the retrospect was what he
had done for the elevation ot humanity and
the advancement of the race. It was his
desire that no outward signs of mourning
be displayed for him.

This world is not only the scene of smug

In the realm of the moral ami spiritual.
Here the solution of the problems will be

settle the superiority of truth over error,

Belrg a Kingdom It his a Mug the
Lord Jesus Christ: it his liws, th precepts
of the gospel; it has subjects, all true be-

thought: Jesus Christ neter saved a sonl he
did not govern. Obedience is the end of all
Ke'igion has its embodiment in the love
of God, and the Lord siyetli: "If e love
me, keep my commandments."
Sin originated in disobedience to God's
law. Salvation reaches its highest con
summation here when men are brought back
to heart loyalty to Go.1, md hearty, unfal
tering obedience to His laws.
The "Kingdom of GoJ" is a kingdom of
law. and in harmony with this it was typi
fied by tlie old Jewish Theoe.acy.
It baa a visible manifestation in themlli
tant church. John the Baptist iltdar-M to
the Jews that it was at hind. The Lord
himself made the same announcement and
commanded his disciples to preach the same
doctrine. On the day of Pentecost it came
with great ower and glory.
We need not go out of this world to tind

II. The kingdom of Gol is aggressive.
It is a living, vital fcrce, therefore, it is
neither silent nor inactive. It differs from
all other ktngdo lis : Its stre.igth and aggres
sive force is not in fleets, fortresses or
armies; it ha been projected into the
world of conscience and thought; it great
aggressive forces are motives, truth and
righteousness, its greatest bittlcs are fought
on the plains of the huma.i soul, not with
swords of Damasc.is steel, but with the
sword of truth, even the "word which pro
ceedch out of the mouth of God."
The kingdoms that gain their couquets
with the sword that sheds huiivn blojd
will ultimately perish, for it is vvntt.n,

The Kingdom of God, panting with Its

constantly new trophies are won and mul

Ill The Kingdom of God Is triumphant.
The text is a prayer divinely commanded.

The coming ot the kingdom, its prevail

are its victories and its triumphs.
Largely the foundation of these triumph
is in Christian thought, prayc and faith

That prayer Is mightiest which holds the
largest embodiment of truth, aud is cer

The Kingdom nf God is the embodiment,
the incarnation of all truth, and Is without
admixture of error.
It infolds to men the subllmest thoughts,
and the profoundest truths that ever pene

the subllmest and most powerful motives to
control human action.
It is organized for victory, and its ulti

In conclusion, it is my humble thought,
thit all forces of evil are concentritrd in

king. Vast as is the power of this king
dom. Its power and resources are finite
v gainst It are unrtlaled the armies of
heaven, which liave been mobilized in the

of this kingdom can lie measured only by
the inbnite and the eternal.
The battle between these great forces is

end is coming, and when it is reached, then
will appear the stupendous results.
