Dedication of New Organ of Con gress Square Chnrcb. I)r. Klanrhsrd'i Sermon on “Th« Min istry of Music. There wot an Impressive service at Con gress Square church yesterday morning. The magnificent new organ was dedicated In a unique and reverent service. The usual organ prelude was omitted. The pastor, Kev. Dr. Hlanohard, taking his seat in his pulpit engaged in silent prayer as his custom Is. Klalng, the con gregation stood with him during the opening p irts of the service. He then proiounoad the cpmlng sentences: "Ulory to Uod in the highest; on earth p>aoe, good will to men. Jesus said; Uod is tp’.nt, and they that worship Him mu»t worship In spirit and In truth. To this ?nd wa* I born, and for this cause came I Into the world that I should bear witness unto the truth. I am come that they might have life and that they might have It more abundantly. Ye believe in Uod; believe also In me." After these opening sentences he said: As the pastor and representative ot this church, ot those who are present and of those who are absent, of those who have been with us lu the years of the past, on earth and In heaven, I now p*onounce the words dedicating our organ He then, In rever ent tones, pronjunced the words; "In the love of Truth, and In the spirit of Jesus, W3 are united for the worship of Uod and the service ot man. We now, pastor and people, dedicate this organ to be our help er in the great work of glorifying Uod and uplifting the whole family of man kind " The amen to these solemn words w as given from the organ. to the king eternal, Immortal, Invisible, our f ather and our Uod, be honor and glory foriver and pver—Amen." Pastor and people then united In the Lord's prayer. 'The oongregatlon having resumed their seats the oholr rendered very finely a charming anthem written lor the oooa slon by the organist, Sir. frank S. Han klfi. A responsive psalm service followed. The choir then sang the Ulorla, and this was followed by an exquisitely rendered solo by the soprano, Mrs. Clark. The Scripture lesson was taken from I Samuel, XVI. and Psalm Cii. Bullard s anthem "Light and Life” was then Impressively sung by the oholr. After the notices bad been rood Thorne's olfertorle In D. was given as an organ solo, and was heard with great delight. Congregation and oholr then sang most heartily hymn Soil of the delightful hymn book of tbe ohuroh to the tune of Duke Street. The hymn was written for a new organ. The theme of the sermon was "The Ministry of Music." The text was taken from Job XXL , 18—"They rejoloe In the organ.1* After a fitting lotroduotlon, Ur. Blanchard spoke of this ministry under seven divisions. It ministers to men by giving wordless joy We may use ejacula tions ot delight, but these oannot describe our joy, and tbe deepest Is without words. Muslo ministers by giving com fort In sorrow; by giving oalm In exolte ment; by giving oourage in danger; by bestowing tbe peace tbut passeth under standing; by leading us Into communion wltb Uod; by strengthening our belief In the final harmony of the universe. Each of these divisions was amply illustrated by tbe recital of Incidents w herein music thus ministered to men After thanks to the noble woman whose generosity hud enabled the parish to secure the magnifi cent organ—one of the largest and finest In tne oountry—and to tbs generous don ors In tbe parish who had made large gifts which enabled the oommlttee to se nuna flia OPflftn-tfl t.hnHf* Who hAll IflTMTI their small but precious gifts, and to those who will hereafter give large and small contributions—to the committee who had superintended the purchase and (he plaolng of the organ and specially the organist and ohalrman of the parish oom mtttee—to the gentlemanly and expert superintendent of the building of the or gan and his faithful co-workers, among whom were the organist and the faithful sexton, JJr. Blanchard closed his sermon with an earnest appeal lor the rededloa tion of all, pustor and people, to Uod and man. In the love of truth and In the spirit or Jesus, united In the worship of Uod and the servloe of man, they were to use the organ and every other help In the great work of glorifying Uod and up lifting the whole family bt mankind. A silent prayer followed the sermon A hymn written by Mrs. lfarstow "one of the saints of the church/ lor the dedica tion of the nrst organ followed, and then the benediction. Again the noble organ sounded. This postlude was Mendelssohn's Maroh from “Atballe.” This unique service was deeply Interesting, and will be long and sacredly remembered by the members of Congress Square ohurch. BRUNSWICK’S! POPULATION. Mr. Clement F. Robinson, one of the oensus'enumerators of Brunswick explains the apparent loss of population In that town In a letter to the Brunswick Tele graph as follows: Mr. Editor:—The census bulletin of this morning announcing that the popu lation of Brunswick Is 6210 may cause some surprise, and so also may the de crease apparent In the rest of the towns und cities Jn the list. It should bs under stood, however, that this Is only the pop ulation of the “vllltge corporations ' or "olty districts “ which the enumerators wore obliged to enumerate separate from the oountry sections. Vipen the popula tion of the whole town of Brunswick is announced It will be found more satisfac tory, though 1 am not allowed of oourse to state the exact figures. Very truly yours Clement P. Robinson, Ex-Enamerator, 12th U. S. Census. This will probably explain the loss in other Maine towns whloh were generally supposed to be prosperous. PICKED RIPE RASPBERRIES. Mr. Fred P.
