THE ROCK ISLAND ABGUS, MONDAY, MAY 5, 1 fe90.
A CREATIVE SOUL.
The Relation cf the Spiritual Power
to the World.

Flint Baptist I hBrelt Last KveatBK

Rev. J. L. Jackson, late of Blooming
ton, and who has just accepted a call to
a flourishing church at Grand Rtpids,
Mich., preached at the First Baptist
church yesterday morning and evening.
As Mr. Jackson is one of the most emi
nent and able Baptist ministers in the
state, and from the farther fact that he
lived in Rock Island as a boy and is a
brother of Mrs. David Don.he was greeted
by large congregations at both services.
In the morning bis discourse was extern
poraneous and devoted to the life of
Paul . In the evening be preached a
thoughtful and interesting sermon on the
subject: "The Soul Creating Its Own
World." His text was from Matt. 12:35:
"A (food wan out of the frnod treasure or bin
beart brtngeth forth good things."
Said the preacher:
Goethe tells us of a magical lamp bang
up in a fisherman's hut, which by its
wonderful transformations, gradually
changed tables, chairs, floors, walls and
rafters into shining silver, la very truth
a noble character works such a magical
change; it beautifies and glorifies every
thing with which it comes in contact.
This passage teaches that each soul coU
ors, add in a sense crestes its own world.
The world to each individual is larg.-Iy
what he himself is it is dark or bright,
lovely or repulsive, pure or impure, ac
cording to the state of his own heart. It
is wonderful how a good life will sur
charge the whole atmosDhere in which it
moves with goodness. It ennobles all It
touches. Purity creates purity. Asm
file act of true devotion to the good of
humanity will multiply itself in the lof
tir purposes of other hearts. A noble
life will do more to fill other lives with
nobility than all the homilies on virtue
that were ever written or a'l the good
advice that was ever given. The best
Wiy to make others good is to be good
ourselves. ir one wishes kind treatmen
from others be must be kind himself; i
he wishes to be trusted he must trust
others; if he wishes mercy, he must be
merciful; even the selfish man will find
the golden rule a good one to practice,
ixperiecce soon teaches us that whatso
ever we would have others co to us we
must do to them. If we want smiles we
must scatter smiles; if we desire to walk
in lue sunsmne or nope and love we
must help to make that sunshine by
Trusting and lovin? others. Dr. Do.Id
ridge once asked his little girl how it was
that everybody loved her. ! do not
know," she replied, "unless it he that I
love everybody." That was just the re
son. Hhe loved others and it made them
love her. Those who were not in the
habit of displaying affection broke over
their reserve when tbey came into the
sunshine of her loving little heart. The
lark side of the picture is just as true.
fcvil men bring evil into the world. The
grumbler fills the house with grumblers.
When a roan complains that no one can
be trusted it ia time to watch him pretty
closely. When one continually complains
that the world is an abode of misery and
wretchedness, you may be sure that he is
not trying to bring in the sunshine, for as
a man is so will his surroundings be
tie will create his own world. If he be
I'ood others about him will prow
be better. If he be evil, others will be
tainted by contact with him. There is
subtle atmosphere in society which all
help to make. There is something in an
OLkind word or base deed which drives
others to degradation. There is some
thing in a pure life and unselfish charac
ter which calls forth purity and noble
ness from sources where we would least
expect to hod it.
When the world does not seem beauti
iui vi uemrauie to oiners it win seem no
to the good because they look upon it
through the medium of their own charac
ler. Just as the child looks through the
colored glass and sees the landscape
tinged w:th blue or green or red, so will
men find this world of people and things
isne on me moral coloring of the son!
through which he looks. Looking down
into a novel through the brightly colored
glass or hope and love it becomes a para
dise of joy ; looking at a palace through
the dark glass or suspicion and discon
tent it becomes a prison house of gloom
How much of the evil of this life has just
this origin. YV ben the heart is rilled with
fear every rustling leaf is transformed
into a band of armed men with drawn
swords. When the heart is filled with
suspicion every beautiful face becomes
hideous with sin. But purify the heart
create it anew in Christ Jesus then
everything it touches is bathed in heaven
ly light. What a sweet enchantress does
it become. It casts a halo of glory about
the commonest things; it transforms the
plainest of faces into grace and beauty:
it lifts the Ordinary duties of life up to
the level of heroism and devotion; it
reaches up to the heavens and brings
down its joy and comfort to earth.
The enemies of God shut Bunyan in
jail, but they could not bind the wings of
his purified vision. It peopled the dreary
prison with the most delightful of com
panions; It called into being Grcatheart,
Faithful and Christian; it fled from the
City of Destruction; it broke away from
the castle of Giant Despair: it travelled
unfettered along the shining way to the
Delectable mountains, triumphing over
every enemy until at last it reached "the
rest that remained for the people of God."
What matters it what one's outward con
ditions may be if he carries with him a
soul which can paint upon the blackest
prison walls such pictures of light and
Again, the Individual always seeks for
and generally discovers those pecul
iaritlca in outward things which
best correspond with bis own char
acter. 'Father," said an over modest
young lady, "why do you keep such an
obscene book as the dictionary in the
house. It is full of bad words." "Oh, my
daughter," replied the parent, "so you
have been looking for the bad words.have
you?" Look for them and you will find
, them there and everywhere. You have,
perhaps, heard some very moral and up
right skeptic complaining of the indecen
cy of the bible. "Why." be exclaims,
"the book is too obscene to be put into
the family." Ah, my friend, you have
been lojking for the bad things. have you?
You found them most certainly. But go
ask that pure woman, who for years has
read that word of God dally, how much
she has been defiled by it. The tears
gather in her eyes as she tells you that it
teaches the loftiest morality this world
has ever known. Unto the pure all
things are pure, but unto them that are
defiled and unbelieving is nothing pure,
but even their mind and conscience u ie
Two men of opposite character living
in me same city seldom meet. The one
with a depraved nature seeks his kindred
spirits the low and lost. The other
with pure and lofty purposes seeks the
good and lives in their society. The same
principle holds good in the other world.
In the spirit life each will seek his own
By a law of his nature each will go to his
own place. It will not be necessary for
God to cat anyone into outer darkness.
The bad will go there by the law of asso
ciation. If it were possible for such to
go into the courts of heaven, it would not
be heaven to them. "The mind is its
own pi see and in itself will make a heav
en of hell, a hell of heaven." We need
not wait until we die to know something
of the heavenly life. If we have good
hearts we will find goodness and and no
bleness in this world. One with the req
uisite character will find a good deal of
heaven on earth.

Mile Rhea appears at Harper's theatre
tonight in the historical drama, "Jose
phine, Empress of the French." a play
written especially for her and which has
been praised by the press all over the
country. The play is a succession of
striking scenes. In the first act the ball
at the Tuiileries the love of Josephine
and the plot3 of the court which seeks
perpetuity by divorcing the empress in
the hope of an heir to the throue through
another marriage are brought out. The
scene closes with the news of the death
of Napoleon's brother, the King of Hol
land, who was to have been his heir. The
second act is the divorce. Josephine In
Imperial robes and wearing a magnificent
coronet of diamonds, is a memorable pic
ture. The pathos of this scene is some
thing hardly to be surpassed, unless it is
by the next, in which Josephine steals to
Napoleon's room to bid him farewell.
While they are in tender parting. the hoof s
of Talleyrand's horse, bearing him off on
a journey to Vienna to demand the
hand of the Princess Marie Louise for
Napoleon, is heard. In the next act the
heir to the throne is born. Josephine, at
Malmaison awaits he news. Loving Na
poleon more than she hates her rival, f.Le

In the fifth act Napoleon has bee a over
thrown and sent to Elba. Ills Austrain
wife deserts him. Josephine would go to
him. The women meet and a stormy
scene ensues, in which Josephine curses
the false wife. In the sixth act Josephine
dies, but lives long enough to see Na
poleon a return from Elba at the head of
a corquc ring army.

Headache and Dypepsia
William E. Rockwell. No. 512 West
57th street, New York, says:
"I have been a martyr to bilious head
ache and dyspepsia. Any indiscretion in
diet, overfatigue, or cold brings on a fit
of indigestion, to be followed by a bead
ache lasting two or three days at a time.

but it was no use. At last I thought I
would take a simple course of purgation
with Brandreth's pills. For the flm week
I took two pills every night, then one pill
for thirty nights; in that time I gained
three pounds in weight, and never have
hart an ache or a pin since."
