THE TEN COMMANDMENTS.

Ahlr and Intpi eHt (
Iq spite of the inclement weather lut-t
eveDiDg one of the largest congregations
oi the series gathered at the First Metho
dist Church to listen to the presentation
of the "Seventh Cotnraandmant." by the
pastor. Rev F. W.Merrell. The text
was Exodus 20:14;
"Tlion giiblt not commit n nltery.-'
After a service of sonij in which the
whole congregation heartily joined, the
tegular service was tak n tip and the pas
tor said the sin of adultery is the most de
testable and loathsome of ail sins. Christ
bus included under this commandment all
unchastity and the secret of the heart.
It is therefore a broad lUeme, as broad as
Christian puri;y. Iiderves to be ranked
with the sin of intemperance in the num
bers of its victims. We will Jo best to
view this sin in the ligat of God s word.
1. Take the temporal punishment in
meted on the adulterer under the Mosaic
The same penal'y was visited upon
the atluiterer as upon :he murderer. It
was regarded as being as deadly in its
effects on society as tae crime of murder
to which it not infrequently leads. Cod
would hve us regard chattity as dear as
life itself. Our progenitors, the English
Saxens, made this crine and fornication
also, punishable by death even as late as
TOO A D , when Rome abolished this
penally as too rigorous. A code of
morals almost tqutlly stern existed
among the rtd men of Amerira when civi
lization found them. It is one of the
vices attendant upon an in.pe:fect ciyili
Hion . It is linked i idissolubly with the
liquor truffle. The saloon and the brothei

inherit the kingdom ( f God." They are
pictured as without the celestial city,
"where is weeping and wailing and
gnasbii g of teeth."
Note too the tvblc presents the
SBme standard of j urity for man
and woman. It dots cot recog
nize the distinctions of society by
which the adulterer is forgiven and tho
adt.Uere.ss is ostracised. They are alike
and equally guilty tefore God. There
will be a day of final awards when all
there secret sins shah be revealed and the
darkness shr.ll no longer cover them. I
do not wonder that such as persist ia
these and other stcet vices liembleat
thrrght of the judgment, and would blot
out il e words God, judgment, hell
from the vocalnilury of min.
This sin. more than any o'.htr. is a
heart r secret sin. Christ's words reveal
the real character of it in Matthew
Christ first specifies heart adultery.
Thm commandment is often broken in
spirit by the "lust of the eye." Heart
purity is the first requisite for seeing and
knowing God. Yuen he tells us that
proper attitude we are to assume toward
such sins. We are to regard life itself as
less sacred than the purity of inner life.
Christianity stands for chastity. It is
the nligionof purity. Mohammadonism
acquires its power by fittt ring the pas
S'ons of men, so w th all false religions.
Christianity alone antagonizes human
passions and appet tes. This is evidence
of its divinity. 5trange that any man
sbouid oppose a religion that demon
strates its divinity in antagonizing sin
everywhere and always. Every philan
thropist must rejoice at the triumphs of
thegospel. The marvelous power of
Christianity is demonstrated in its effects
on sreiety as on a icient Rome, gay, li
centious Corinth and other corrupt cities
The sins that destroyed Sodon and Gom
onot have been banished from Christian
dom through the r.fluence of Christian
ity. They are fouad in heathendom, but
not where the gospel is preached and
hesrd. The high ideal of purity and
braviry seen in days of chivalry was the
result of CbrisUaaity operating on tbe
civil zition of that period.
Christ stamps the fearful name of
adultery cn divorce, except for one cause,
and on the remarriage of the divorced.
Lust is the most f -ultful caue of divorce
today, and Christ was right in thus
arraigning it. It may be easy to get a
divorce in many s.ates, but it is different
to get it recorded in heaven. It has re
nviintd for the modern infidel to plead
for fiee loveism. One rasb utterance
from the Hps of Christ would have de
stroyed all belief n his divine origin, and
such strains serve to indicate the current
of modern infidelity . Marriages maybe
sometimes unhappy, but it is better that
one suffer than taat the foundations of
the home and of government should be
shaken. Tbe he nousness of adultery is
seen ic that it is ".be most debasing of all
sins. Read Solomon's startling descrip
tion of the "Siraage Woman;" "her home
inciinelh unto death, and her paths unto
tha fjuad" It is the steepest way to
Again, it is sti.mped with the manifest
curse of God in this life, in tbe loathsome
diseases that v ait like avenging angels
on the violators of this eternal law.
These diseases joint with thrilling fingers
toward the eternal judgments of God. It
has helped to ruin cations as Gibbon has
shown of Home. It is blotting out tbe
criminal classes from existence. Whole
families are swept away by it in every
generation. The hope of our country is
in the untainted blood of the pure and
Again, it is a kind of sacrilege. Says
tbe apostle: "What! know ye not that
your bodies are the temples of the Holy
Spirit? If any man defile the temple of
God, him will God destroy, for ttie tem
ple of God ia b )ly, which temple are ye."
As a man ttinketb In his heart, so is
he. Bewre h w you cherish such sins in
the hear: I T-iey write themselves on
face and character little by little.

A substantial evidence of Ruck Inland's
growth and the confidence felt for its fu
ture by its representative business men
is to be manifested early in the spring in
the shape of a handsome modern building
which Peter Fries is to erect on the east
aide of Eighteenth street, immediately
seuth of his liquor house. It will have a
frontage of 70 feet by 40 feet deep, and
will be of brick and sandstone, three
stories in height and ornamental in ap
pearance. What it will be used for Mr.
Fries has not yet determined butwilldoso
soon. He is thinking seriously of de
signing and constructing it for a hotel on
the European plan with restaurant on the
first floor. Ho put up such a building in
Moline last year and it has brought him
geed returns. Mr. Fries is aiso consider
ing a suggestion to design the building as
a theatre with first floor entrance and
built entirely on the most modern design
as to entrance, exits and accommoda
tions. Mr. Fries was at first reticent when
asked us to his proposed improvements
this morning. "I have not made up my
miud yet what I will do," he said. "1
have been thinking about putting up a
building for some time, but have not yet
determined wtat it will be. I have
thought some of a hotel on the European
plan like the one I put up in Moline, but
I have not made up my mind yet. I
will erect a building of some sort."
"Thejruth is," continued Mr. Fries,
"I want to do something to get my money
back for what I have paid out in paving.
