Mverlal BioBiml Programme
A large congregation gathered last eve.
nin? at the First Metntdist church, ind
was gteeted with an interestinc; and
profitable service. The choral portion of
the service was "as good as a concert.''
The choir acquitted itself with great cred
it, wh.lo the male quarte tte. consislinjr of
Messrs. Creel and Housel, tenors, Van
Duzen and Perrett, bast os, retdered two
selections with most excellent effect.
The sermon by the pastor. Rev. F. W.
Merrell, was on the First Command
-Thon shult have no other 3ods before me. "
The decaloRue, iaid t!ie pf.stor.is God's
grand compendium of moral philosophy,
lis precepts are binding upon all men
and yet are often broke n by even those
who have received i hristian instruc
tions. Whoever obeys these ten words
in letter and spirit is a perfect man.
This commandment touches the prefer
ences aud attachments of the heart. It
is not directed against, the worship of
idols of wood and stone, of gold or silver.
I' touches the idolatries of the heart.
Tha Second Commandment is directed
against outward idolatry. This com
mandment assumes two things without
uudtrlakirg to prove Utm: First that
man is a worshipping be iDg; secondly, that
God is. Considered net atively, this com
mandment prohibits (1) Atheism or the
denial of G.id. (2) l olytheism or the
worship of many Godt. (3) Pantheism
or tt e denial of a peisoaalGod.
First. It is a fact not without signifl.
cance that the bible nowhere attempts to
prove the existence of G od, or of the soul,
ortf spiritual beings between God and
man or the facta of heven and hell. It
assumes them atd proceeds to reason up
on them as though they needed no proof.
There is a deeper philosophy in this than
is often understood. I: is useless "to ar
gue with those whodecy their own exist
ence and the existence of the natural
universe. They deny the evidence of
their own senses or of consciousness.
Words are wasted on tl em. It would be
a strange sight to see a mother trying to
convince her 4ycart ld child by argu
ment of the existence of toe
sun by reasoning from effect to
cause Take the child out under the skies
and let it look up and crink in the glori
ous view of the orb of day. Thus ihebest
way to remove unbelief is not by argu
ment, but by appeal to one's innate belief
of God. Science demenstrates the exis
tence of God, but that demonstration does
Dot add materially to one's convictions
with respect to God's existence. When
the itfidel wrote for h s child to read.
"tod is nowhere," the little one read
truly, "God is now here." So it is with
men generally. The very things that are
used to demonstrate .hat God does not
exist, do, to the spiritually minded demon
strate that God is.
Second. The Polyt heist is as much
to be found in ctristendom as in
heathendom. Idolatry is either overt
or covert. The con mandment directs
its force against the preferences and
attachments of the heart. It for
bids all heart idolatry, holding a
secret and unconfessed allegiance toother
objects than God. A man serves as his
God that which be permits to have a con
trolling power in his li e. In this deeper
inner sense, every man is a worshiper.
Every man has bis God in this clear
sense. Hence the forte of the command
ment. Some men setve Mammon, they
worship gold. Others are supremely
controlled by pleasu e. All questions
even the most serious, ire decided by that
motion. Others worst ip fame, ambition
like a Napoleon, etc. Such idolatry is
condemned by the tex:. What a man
loves he terves.
Third. There are those who claim to
see God everywhere sr d yet who deny
him a personality acyvhere. Thf'se are
JantLeisU. Nature is God and God is
only nature. The Hebrew scrip
tures are exceedingly vivid on this
question. God is called the "Living
God." He loves the ,'ood, He bates the
evil. In this regard the scriptures are
consistent, for he ho loves the good
must to precisely the same extent bate
the evil. The doctrine of a personal
God is vital to the scriptures.
Christ has considere i this command-,
ment only in a positive senee. "Thou
sbalt' loye tha Lord thy God with all thy
heart, and with all tby mind and with all
tby strength." These words are the best
commentary on thh commandment.
This summary recogni ses the fact that
what a man loves supremely will be his
God. Real worship involves love.
God wants our suprame affection, our
heart preference, our emotional nature.
Some do not believe in an emotional re
ligion, tbe speaker believed in no otter.
Conversion meant heart change. God en
chained within. Tbe form of affection
was illustrated by reference to "Curfew
shall not ring tonight.'' The summary of
Christ touches also the intellect, "with all
tby mind." Right conceptions of God
are essential to real attachment to him.
Last of all God wants our supreme
service, "with all tby strength. " lie
wants tbe whole ma t.
The discourse lo3ed with an
appeal to give God the first place in
heirt and in tbe mini and
in service, and enforced tbe thought that
he who does not do this is breaking tbe
spirit of this first com nandment as surely
as he who bows to idc Is.

Tha formil opening of Louis GiocSc
hofT8 billiard parlors over his Arcide
cigar store on Second avenue occurred
Saturday evening, and there was a large
attendance of the friends of Mr. Glock
hoff and of the great game of billiards.
The room is tastefully arranged, the walls
nicely papered and provided with com
fortably seats on a raised pla'.form, run
ning the length of the room on either
side. There are two handsome Bruns
wick Balke Collender billiard tables.
Saturday evening Billy Catton, Rock Isl
and's expert and champion billiard player,
played a game with Mail Curier A. H
Hampton, who has seen good billiards in
bis day in fact it was under his tuis
tion that Mr. Catton first learned to
play the conditions being that Catton
was to make 200 points or no count. He
failed to accomplish this, his best run be
ing 126 points. Afterward be gave an
exhibition of fsr.cy plays such as be alone
is capable of making, and which were
made to the delight of all present.
Mr. Glockhoff will conyert one of the
tables in his store into a pool table
and will use these tables for pool playing
only, the rooms above being for billian's
only. Mr. Glockhoff proposes to conduct
his rooms on the most orderly principles
his aim being to provide a pleasant place
where tbe lovers of the game may enjoy
themselves quietly. In this he has every
Psd to II i m Rpward.

Louis Napoleon was a dic

the French. He had, by his
own irresistible will, placed
himself over the great French
nation, He was a despot, but
