Ordination services nt Trlnitv
Chnrrh V.sterdy nomine. nrt
loollrmailoa Iv.t KvenmK
by ltm)iop Barges.
Much interest is being manifested in
the series of discourses on the Ten Com
mundments now being presented at i he
First Methodist enured by the pastor.
Rev. F. W. Merrell. With the efficient
a:d of the choir the services are made
both attractive and profitable. The
subject lust evening was the Thirl Com.
mndnient. Profanity" from Exodus
Thou (Omit not tuke the name of the Lord thv
the Lord will n, hold him
guiltless thai taketh his name iu vai.i."
Tue speaker siid profine in its deriva
tion signiQoa in front of a temple or
ftne. The interior of a temple or fine
was sacred, but the t xterior the outer
world was profane, in the original use
of the word. A profane person is there,
fore one whose wholt; life is unc n8e
crated and without reference for sacred
things. Esu is a Ijiblical example;
profanity in its derivative meaning is as
broad as the term irreverence. But the
mst bommbu, as wel. as grossest form
of irreverence, is taking Gjd's name in
vain. Hence profanity commonly signi
fies swearing. This commandment is,
however, exceedingly broad. It condemns
all irreverence all fort is of profanity, as
well as Bwearinft. It is said that Jesus
would not so much as utter the name of
Jehovah in conversation or reading, and
substituted another name that tbey
might not risk violating this command
muut. Taking God's n ime in vain orgin
ally meant for an evil purpose, and hence
for a vain and idle purpose.
1. This commandment evidently
touches hypocrisy. God's name CHnnoi
be taken in vain more surely or sinfully
than by using it in falao profession. The
speaker believed from bis observation
that there are comparatively few delib
erate hypocrites persons who purposely
act a part, in the chu-cbes. But there
are many who do as the Gypsies did with
the bible when translated into their lan
cuit;e tbey hung it about their nicks as
a charm when they went to steal. So
there are those who use the worship of
God and prayer as a kind of charm to
avert the evil cousequi jces of continued
sin. Such are self-dtceived, like Cath
erine of Kussia, who caused paintt d vil-
e to be erected a! mg the route she
was about to take in traversing over her
dominions that she might imagine her
realms populous. Such will be greeted
to their consternation at the last great
day with the words, "I never knew you;
depart rrom me.
2 This commandment touches the
sin of corenact breaking. God's name
bis Deen taken in vain by numbers wlio
h ive made vows unto God and have not
performed them. "Thou shalt not for
swear thyself, but shalt perform unto
the Lord thine oaths." Instances were
given of those who had solemnly pnira-.
i.eu a tlying mother or friend to mee t
them in heaven, to lead a christian l.fe,
and jet hud never redtemed their vows.
Another clufs wore thofe who have taken
the vows of God's service upon them in a
public and pecu'iirl; solemn way and yet
have not redeemed tteir vows. Such
truly violate) the spirit of this com
mand. 3 Another form of transgressing this
couimacdment is in using God's name
lignily and irreverent!, as iu observing
forms of worship with the tho ughts far
away. True worship it volves the whole
being of man. "Vain repetitions" are
forbidden by the Saviour. The mere re
petition of prayers is not worship, and is
one form of taking Goc's name in vain.
Congregations wtieD in prayer should as
sume a revtrcrtial attitude to which the
whole congregation cot forms.
4. This commandment sliikes nt the
common practice of fin ling material for
jesting in scripture, tinning passages of
God's word into a joke, pointing a pun
with the sacred word ol scripture, tiome
hymns and passaees of scripture are thus
shorn of power to do eood by the unhM
lowed associations that tbey dll up. Un
belief comes of tener from irreverent as
sociations lhan from intellectual doubt.
The sneers of infidelity have wrought
more mischief than all the arguments of
unbelitf. Intellect without reverence is
the bead of a man j-'ined to a beast.
Never jest wilk actiptu e more than you
would with the Bicred name or fane; of
wi(e or mother. Those are some sub
jects too Bacred for jesting.
5. This commandment, too, condemns
the perjurer the man who stands before
a court of justice ani invokes God's
name in support of a deliberate falsehood.
This has justly been regarded as a great
crime. It is punifhiblj in most coun
tries by law, 4or if perjury is permitted
there can be no security to society.
0 This commandment condemns the
invocation of God's name and authority
for any evil purpose as as done in the
crusades and in the inquisition. How
fearful to think of what has been done in
God's name in htstorj !
But passing all these, turn to that par
ticular sin which is especially prohibited
by this rommmdment the sin of pro
fanny of common swearing. Consider
this sin in a candid macner with me to
night. Consider its real nature. It is a di
rect insult to the name and authority of
Almiebty God. He has forbidden it.
Every oath insults God. It is a sin to
which there is little terrptation. Satan
baits some hooks with f leasure and some
with profit, but this is a bare hook, as
said Rowland Hill.
Profanity is exceedingly pernicious in
its consequences. It leads to perjury
through irreverence for the sacred name
of Deity. It thus strikes at social secur
ity. It shocks and wounds the feelings of
all rleht-minded people -whether professed
christians or not. It violates the law of
good society profanity ia a sure evi
dence of ill-breeding. Well-bred infi
dels do not blaspheme. It is a useless
Bin, It adds no force to language wtth
any right-minded person. Peter did not
materially strengthen his denial of Christ
by his oaths Men usually employ oaths
from a sense of the weakness of their
statement and the poverty of their vocab
ulary. This sin exposes to the displeas
ure of bim who says: "The Lord will not
bo d bim guiltless that taketh his name
in vain " What an -awful record some
men are carelessly making. I', must be
faced some day. Christ interprets this
commandment yet more broadly, for he
forbids swearing by heaven, by the earth,
and in similar ways. Our communica
tions are to be "yea, yea, nay, nay. sim
ple sffermation and denial. "For what
soever is more than these comethof evil "
Oh. the f-acredness of language, it is an
indt x to the heart. " Out of the abund
ance of the heart the mouth epeaketh "
"Let the words of my mouth be acoept
able in thy sight."
ORDINATION AT TRIXITV.
There were impressive services at Tr'n
ity church yesterday morning, L.I. Jen
ner, of Warsaw, who has been in the
deaconate for some time, being elevated
to the dignity of the holy ministry by
Bishop Burgess assisted by Dean Sweet
of this city and Rector Hewitt of Moline.
It was the first seivices of this kind ever
held in Rork Island, and the solemn rite
was witnessed by a large congregation.
In the evening the new priest preached
the sermon and Bishop Burgessconfirmed

A 31iitraNtlis Mongolian.
A mild mannered Mongolian, fresh
from the Oriental clime, arrived at the C ,
R I. & P. passenger depot from the
west at 7 o'clock yesterday morning. An
inventory 01 nis oeiongmgs showed a
lunch batket, a red bed quilt and a ticket
to Peoria. He couldn't understand or
speak a work of Eaglish, but showed bis
ticket to Pecria. Those about the de
pot then tried to explain that bis train
woud not leave until 8 o'clock this
morning, but be couldn't quite make oat
what they said. He had the "cue" all
right, but be couldn't just un lerstand
tbem. They tried almost everything to
explain it to bim, and at last took him
to the clock and showed bim that be
could go at S o'clock, and he was ap
parently satisfied until that hour last
night, when he thought that be ought to
be going, but as no train appeared be be
came uneasy, and when the employes at
the depot, pulled him off a Chicago train
a Utile later, he became greatly excited
and imagined that tbey were trying to
"play horse" with him. The more they
talked the more excited he became, and
finally in a fit of frenzy be left the depot
with his bedquilt folded about him, and
it was thought he had gone in search ot
"One Lucg" or some other man of his
own race to whom he cou'd tell his
troubles, but be has not been seen since.
He left his lunch basket at the depot, and
it is now thought that be is on his way
to Peoria on foot, and if he ever does
reach it, that mecca of te thirsty will
always have bim there, for its dollars to
collar buttons that he will never ride on
railroad train again.
