Mr. Locke was born in Irasburg,
Nov. 1G, 18(5", and spent his boyhood
days there. He came to St. Johns
bury to complete his education and
was for a time a student at the Acad
emy. He then returned o Irasburg
to work in a store and for a time had
a similar position in Newport. About
1880 he came to St. Johnsbury again
where he began his mercantile life
in the Fairbanks dry goods store.
Later he worked in the Harvey &
Urown store and when the store of
Lougee & Smyt'he was started in
i St. Johnsbury in 188! he entered
j their employ where he served aith
I fully for 2(5 years. In the spring of

THERE A HELL"
Stirring Sermon by Evange
list Before Large Audi j
ence at M. E. Church
Continuing his addresses on the vi- :
tal themes Dr. Rces spoke to a large -audience
in Grace Methodist church j
Monday night on the great ejuostion i
"Is there a Hell'.1 ' if yotl are I
not in sympathy with what I shall j
try to make very plain, you have j
nothing to settle with me, but some I
day you will settle it with Him who I
spake and it was done, who command-
cd and it stood fast. You wh.i conn: I
in contact with men know that there
are more caricatures an. puns put
forth with reference to this doctiincl
than all the others of the Ihble. Hotter
far joke about the great international ;
conflict across the sea, or' about tire j
death of your dearest friend, than j
anything as I'eurl'ul as future punish
ment.'' Dr. Pees then rea l what Jesus said
about future punishment, adding that
it one accepted -n-'t l
heaven he must fairly accept what He
said about hell. "Voltaire did not
believe ii! future punishment, but
toward - the close of his life a friend
wrote h ying 'I have found out i
at lust there is no hell. He wrote
back to the young man raying '1
congratulate you. I have not been
so fortunate.' If we are fair and
honest with our convictions and with
the IJook of Hooks we aie cmpelled
to say, 'This doctrine is scriptural.'
"It is reasonable from cause and
ell'eet. 'The wages of sin is death.'
We all knothul the whole tendency
of a life of sin is to separate one
from God. What then, must be the.
inevitable result at the end of n life
deliberately spent in sin and rbcllion.
"It is also reasonable, for there are
two classes. 'To be carnally minded
is deatli.' That is one class. 'Put to
be spiritually minded is life and
peace.' That is another class.."
"It is a solemn fact, whatever you
may think or try to make yourself
believe, God says in the. llible 5(i
times "There is a hell." If he had
obly spoken once up;u such a theme,
who would have pie.-uined to have de
bated it? But after speaking 5(5
times in clear unmistakable tones,
who, I ask, born as it were yesterday,
living a little while today and feone
foreer tomorrow, will say, "I do not
believe it?" And go on us if there
were no God and no Bible and no
judgment and no eternity. Surely
the most unreasonabl e and skeptical
will admit at least the possibility of
there being a hell, and must also ad
mit that the man who lives an earnest
Christian life is on the safe side. But
he who refuses to become a Chris
tian, even with just the possibility of
finding out at last that there is a hell,
is assuming a tremendous'' risk and
awful danger. The wise man, there
fore, in any and every age is the one
who keeps His commandments and
lives the life that must end in eternal
glory. You may ask, Where is hell?
Just thru the door that swings into
cternnily at the end of a life without
Jesus Christ. I do not say a life of
intoxication, or of gambling, or im
purity, but just a life without Jesus
Christ. "He that hath the Son hath
life. He that hath not the Son hath
