Highest of all in Lcavening Po
SUNDAY AT ST. LUKE'S.
Two Interesting Services by Rev. John Ker
shaw of Suiter.
The little congregation of St. Luke's
church had the pleasure of meeting their
former beloved pastor who gave them
two services last Sunday-in the morning
and afternoon. The former was a full
liturgical service, incliding the Nicene
creed, the Litany, Te-deum, ante-Com
munion, bermon and the Holy Commun
ion, to which the minister invited all
Christians of. other Churches present to
partake. In this connection we might be
permitted to speak of the pleasure it has
given the congregation to have Mr. E. N.
Baker, a visitor from Augusta, Ga., to
help in the choir. He has a sweet and
powerful tenor voice and, together with a
well known gentleman of one of our city
churches, who has a rich and full bass,
the ladies had the satisfaction of having
the grand old Te-Deum sung with in
spiration and charming effect.
Mr. Kershaw delivered his morning's
discourse from Acts 1: 8: The true,mean
ing of these words, said the speaker, were
not apprehended by the apostles at first.
It was not until they had infallible proofs
of his resurrection, signally manifested to
many witnesses, during "the great forty
days'" he remained on earth previous
to his ascension, that the sublime truth
of his spiritual kingdom flashed upon
them. The resurrection had been a dream,
a hope, of which they had no practical or
experimental knowledge; but now it was
a living realization. The Crucified and
Risen Lord remained and revealed him
self and taught his followers, that there
should be no doubt as to his resurrection
nor of the method of work before them
in the spiritual kingdom.
He was now the Lord of Life and Con
queror of the grave, continued Mr. Ker
shaw, and the a>ostles knew how his
kingdom was set up and should be main
tained; they wero likewise conscious of
its divine origin and deathless energy.
Among the notable sayings of our Lord
were the following:
1. His declaration of royalty. All power
being given unto Him.
2. The commission of authority to the
apostles. "As my Father hath sent me,
even so send I you."
3. His continued presence with them
and their success. "Lo, I am with you
always, even unto the end of the age."
4. His assertion of the missionary char
acter of the ministry. Their authority to
teach, baptize and enjoin obedience upon
the converts to the new faith. "Go ye
into all the world," etc.
5. The pastoral commission. ."Feed my
sheep." A universal command of perfect
equality to high and low, rich and poor
The Church of Jesus Christ hath not
been left -to chance, said the devout and
gifted young minister. Divinely estab
lished, endowed and appointed, it shall
never be despoiled by despotism nor the
anarchy of mobocracy; but divinely
equipped and radiant with the light of
heavenly love, it will be ever ready to
receive the prodigal and penitent ones
who seek refuge and rest within the
Saviour's protecting arms.
Mr. Kershaw traced the form of the
charter of the Church of Christ through
uninspired history to the daysof St. John
and thence through inspired history, as
one would trace through the courts to an
original grantor for an abstract of title to
a deed of land, and very happily ex
plained the meaning of the expression
the Kingdom of God.
"Follow Me." That, said Mr. Kershaw,
is the side that fronts on the individual,
and the things that pertaun to the king
dom front society. We do not see our
Lord now with our bodily eyes, but we
can be in touch and fellowship with him
t.rough his sorrow and suffering. "Bless
ed are they who have not seen and yet
have believed." He earnestly and very
tenderly besought his hearers to strive
for the consecrated life that they may
hasten the blessed day of the Church's
triumph. To this end things that eclipse
the vision, dwarf character and deform
the divine likeness must be abandoned.
The Church gave the Bible, not the
Bible the Church. [Much churchly and
histoice information was given, but we
have broken the threads and shall not
attempt to follow it.]
The sermon in the afternoon on the
mandatory and perpetual command to
"Remember the Sabbath Day to keep it
holy," was along the line of Scriptural
truth, and both logical ind forceful, and
a trumpet call to the duty of Sunday ob
servance. We hope to refer to it again.
At the close of prayer the rite of infant
baptism was performed and again at a
private residence the following morning.
Mr. Kershaw left on Monday for the
city of Charleston where he will attend
the annual convention of the Church
which will assemble this morning for the
transaction of very important business.
Among other things an assistant to Bish
op Howe will be elected.

Book of Judges and have decided that
the answer is contained in the fol
"Then Jael, Heber's wife, took a nail
of the tent, and took a hammer in her
hand, and went softly unto him, and
smote the nail into his temples and
fastened it into the ground; for he was
fast asleep and weary. So he died.
And behold as Barak pursued Sisera,
Jeel came out to meet him and said
unto him, Come, and I will shew thee
the man whom thou seFekest. And
when he came into her tent, behold
Sisera lay dead, and the nail was in
his temples." Judges 4: 21, 22.

AN OPEN LETTER.
MILLEESBURG, KY., March 3, 1893.
Mr. J. S. C. Carpenter, Gen. Agt. P.
. F. I. A., Chester, & C.-Dear Sir :
Yours to hand, saying that you have
met with adver.e criticism in orgau- I
izing and operating a co-operative plan
of fire insurance in your State. We
have many Associations in this State
that have been in operation for from
10 to 18 years, and there is not one of!
them that has not furnished insurance
to the people for less than half of what
the old line companies charge for fire
only, and we have invariably paid the
loser of property without the least ten
dency to quibble. Yet with all these
facts and not a single failure on record,
those whose bread and butter depend
upon downing this insurance principle
are everlastingly crying that they will
break! The last association organized
in this State was in August, '91, one of
the worst fire years in the history of
the country. Yet we paid every loss
promptly and saved $3.00 on the $1,000
insurance and had protection against
wind and lightning as well as fire.
During that period no less than 82 fire
insulance companies went to the wall.
38 of those that broke were on the mu
tual plan and 44 on the capital plan.
Not a co-operative company was to
be found in the list of wrecks. Ex
perience has taught all fire com
panies that fires do not come singly
but in groups, but when averaged up
our plan must necessartly fall below
the cost of a company run for profit?
else how could they run. No associa
tion, however, of this kind has ever
cost as much in any one year, no odds
how unfortunate, as a capital company,
Yours truly, and in sympathy with
any man who tries to lead the people
out of financial Egypt.

lo the Farmers of Newbernj County:
The foregoing leter speaks for itself
and shows that cu plan of insurance
has been tried elsewhere and not found
wanting. Before you insure your prop
erty, thoroughly examine this plan and
you will go no further. It costs less
than half the cost of a capital company
and is a hundred per cent. more relia
