TO SCHOOL AGAIN
Several Thousand Children Re

VILLA DE CHANTAL REOPENS
Rev. W. S. Marquis at Broadway De
votes Sermon to Discourse for
The several thousand city school chil
dren returned to their desks in tho
public schools this morning, the enroll
ment of new pupils in the graded
schools and the high school being un
usually large. A brief session was helJ
at the high school this morning, the
time being devoted to organization and
the assignment of the pupils to the
classes. The incoming class this year
shows an increase over last year's
class. The school buildings have under
gone extensive overhauling and repairs
during the vacation months and the fa
cilities are good for the accommoda
tion of the large number of pupils.
I'ootltall Ten in nt Practice.
Among the first activities of the stu
dents of the high school is football and
many candidate for positions on the
team will be seen on the gridiron this
evening. Captain McManus is confi
dent of a winning team, and he, to
gether with Coach II. E. Brown, will
weed out all available material in the
school. Although the team will be
handicapped by the graduation of sev
eral of the stars of last year's team,
there are nevertheless some coming
stars among the candidates. The re
visoment of the game by the rules com
mittee will have its effect on the team,
onie having already announced their
opinion of the new game, saying it is
not practical and that the science of
the game will be lost.
The Villa de Chantal and St. Joh
eph's school reopened their doors for
the fall term today with a large en
rollment. Sermon for StudeniM.
"Christ is a guard against the dan
gers of intellectual culture," said Dr.
W. S. Marquis, pastor of the Broadway
Presbyterian church, in his discourse on
"Christ in Student Life" yesterday morn
ing. He took his text from Colossians
2: 6-10, and spoke particularly to the
young people. The substance of his
"Nearly nineteen millions of students
stand at the threshold of our schools,
public and private, today. A sight to
thrill the dullest imagination. Thou
sands of these are little children who
enter school for the first time and
thousands youth who leave home for n
higher education. What new influ
ences, what grave duties and responsi
bilities confront them all. How much
all students need sympathy and help to
make the most of their student days.
Our text reveals the value of Christ.
It is especially appropriate to student
life. It reveals Christ first as the guide
to conduct. He can save from the dan
gers of appetite and physical self-indulgence
which so often destroy youth.
He can give wisdom in the choice of
friends and in all the social relations
of the school, room. He can quicken
conscience for the performance of every
duty. The student who takes Him a3
guide will be Christ-like in conduct.
Guard AKilnnt Dangem.
"Then Christ is a guard against the
dangers of intellectual culture. Subtle
temptations and dangers spring up in
the development of the mind. Self
conceit, pride of intellect, arrogance,
doubt and mental confusion threaten
the scholar. Jesus Christ is our refuge.
He teaches that meekness which is the
essence of good scholarship. He lifts
into spiritual truth far above the fogs
of doubt, so that one may be safe, even
though his difficulties are not all sat
isfied." (I lory of ICtlneallon.
In conclusion. Dr. Marquis spoke of
Christ as the "goal of character," and
the "ideal man." Continuing, he added:
"'Ye are complete in Him,' says Paul.
This is the true end of education and
the development of character. Unless
our schools return us men and women
of the highest type, they fail inglori
ously. Where will we find the highest
type except in Christ? Catch His spir
it; grow up into Him and you will re
ceive the very crown and glory of education."
Reunion of the Ninth.
The 9th Illinois cavalry regiment
will meet Sept. 25-26 at Grand Army
