Pulpit and Pew MR. LAMAR'S REPLY He Answers the Question, "Who Are the Disciples of Christ?" PECULIAR BUT NOT PECULIAR A Church "Whose Only Creed lit the New Testament— Ap pendices. Rev. J. S. Lamar, Grovetown, Ga., to the question, "Who are the Disciples of Christ," contributes a reply in substance as follows: Let me answer that the Disciples are dis tinguished from other Christians by having no distinction; that they are peculiar in not being peculiar. This characteristic is nega tive, as respects other Christians, but In It self Is no less positive and distinctive. All Christians are essentially alike. They believe and must believe In Christ. He is the object of their faith, the source of their life and the ground of their hope. It matters not who they are, they believe on him, preach him, Jove him, obey him. So far there Is nothing to distinguish them from each other. This is the unifying faith, and so long as they are Content with It they are one. It makes them Christians. But It should be noticed, It makes them nothing else. It does not make them denoml natlnal or any peculiar kind of Christians, but just Christians or, disciples of Christ. It requires something more than this divine faith, something different from It, or some enlargement or modification of It, to make of a man anything more or other than a simple Christian.

J. S. LAMAR, .; Of Grovetown, Ga., a prominent member of the Christian church. ,/■,..' some distinctive name; but whatever, it is, while it subserves this.purpose, it necessarily distinguishes them also from the Christians pure and simple as portrayed in the new tes tament. • The reader will now perceive what I mean by saying that the distinguishing peculiarity of the disciples is in having none. They have no human creed and no party name. Their only creed Is the one which all alike believe and accept, and which all alike must believe and accept in order to be Christians. If they are distinguished from others, it is only be cause others wear distinguishing badges, and they do not. '-' , : ; Now those persons who feel that it is proper, and right to be more than Christian select the distinguishing human organization and name which they refer, and thus become, often without meaning it, sectarian. With j many, however, the conviction is ripening into a feeling, that additions to original Christian ity can only mar Its divine beauty and com- J plicate Its divine simplicity. Of course, the ! obvious and natural alliance for such Chris- j tians is with the Disciples of Christ. This I may explain why so many Intelligent and j pious persons are uniting with them. It is i further explained by the fact that to the lead- j ers of Christian thought it has become evi dent that the only possible foundation. for I true Christian union is this same divine faith j Upon which the Disciples are standing and pleading for union. . It is needless to add. especially for those I ■who have had knowledge of the Disciples, \ that this faith in the personal and divine Christ Involves the Intelligent acceptance of All his teachings and the willing obedience to fcis commandments and ordinances. It In volves an abiding trust In him as a living •nd gracious presence, and a faithful walk with him and In him to the very end. Church Notes. The evening service at the Fremont Avenue '.

I "" ~ , ■ , ," ==The Minneapolis Journall== NORMANNAHEIMEN OLE BULL'S 5 COLONY Story of an Unfortunate Venture in -.Pennsylvania. . ' THE "CASTLE" NOW IN DECAY How the Great Mnsician Gave Con certs to Raise Money for * ' Colonists. * Only one , survivor of Ole Bull's ill fated colonies of Oleona and New Bergen, in Potter county, Pennsylvania, is still living in the vicinity. She is Mrs. Mary Andersen, widow of Henry Andersen, Mr. Bull's manager and secretary. She is 84 years old and lives with an adopted son back in the hills. She was in earlier days a remarkable woman, for, besides being a successful trapper, a wielder of the ax and a tiller of the soil, she distinguished herself as a log driver on Kettle creek during the early years of lumbering on that stream. Having the strength of two ordinary .men, this woman, with pike-pole and cant-hook, waded knee deep in the turbulent stream, wresting the stranded logs into the water and breaking Jams with' an Intrepidity seldom displayed by men. It is no wonder then, after a life of this sort, that one finds her to-day a sufferer with rheumatism and scarcely i able to leave the cumbersome arm chair that was made especially for her use. But her memory is yet quite good, and she tells many interesting things concerning Ole Bull and his colonists. Those of the latter who were unable to leave the coun try- after the: downfall of the settlement now lie buried in a little graveyard just below the old Oleona inn. ■ .Mrs. Andersen tells of the coming of Ole Bull and his countrymen; how bois- j terously happy they were; how they danced the nights away, to the enchanting notes of Oles fiddle, and how they built castles in the air during their quiet mo ments. One might at a merry making hefd (at the Oleona inn the Norwegian. j danced so lustily that the floor gave way ; and the dancers were thrown into a promiscuous heap on the floor below. All escaped injury,' however, and after drink-, ing to the health of Ole Bull and the suc cess of his colony they adjourned to an other apartment and continued their rev . elry. * ' " .' " . v ■"■■' '■: Oles Castle. » . * Ole Bull's "Castle," though but a two story frame structure, was looked upon as a quite extravagant feat in architecture. Except for the wayside tavern, Oles abode was. the most pretentious structure in the country roundabout, for the colonists lived In log houses, sometimes as many as five families under one roof. ; - y " ;• The "Castle" was built on the crest of a hill, near the center of the 12,000 acres which Bull and his countrymen bought, within a year it became known to the colonists that they had been victimized by unscrupulous swindlers; that the title to their land was worthless; that all the money they had paid out was as if it had been thrown into the fire, and they were left at the very verge of starvation,, with out even a rift of hope in the cloud; of despondency. Many of the colonists had put into the property every dollar 4fcat they had. Others used money that had been borrowed from friends. When the : colonists got over their first • great dis appointment and grief there were those ! among them ready to kindle the fire of re sentment against Ole Bull. At his door was placed the blame for the disastrous termination -of '■ the colonists' roseate dream. '-""..,;•; -"'„*>' , They forgot that in the shrewd game of the land , owners, in which the title ;to their 12,000 acres had been swept away, Ole j Bull i was by far the heaviest loser. He, like they, -was left almostF penniless, but they thought j only of I their own losses and the | hardships j that , the: future held jin i store ' for them. y But Ole Bull, •** though I almost heartbroken over the cruel fate that h had overtaken his own fortune and the colony plan which bade so fair to be a blessing to his countrymen, did not des pair. It was a time when something had to be done, and that quickly. The stores of the colonists were about exhausted; discontent was manifest upon every hand; winter was coming on, and succor must be had somehow, somewhere. It was then that Ole took up his violin again, and for I the next few months nearly all the money he made with his fiddle went toward buy ing provisions and clothing for the Ole ona colonists. It is said that when he left the colony on this occasion he walked through the forest to Lock Haven, thirty miles distant carrying the case containing his precious fiddle under his arm. At Lock Haven he gave his first concert; the ] second was given at Williamsport, and from each of these places wagons loaded with supplies,were sent back to the dis heartened colonists in the Kettle creek valley. - Few Cabins Left. There are very few of the old cabins left in the old settlements and soon they and the "Castle" will have wholly disap peared with nothing to mark the site of the colonies -so kindly planned by Ole Bull. SWEDEN'S FAVORITE ("miliar Wennerberg., Whose Memory Cannot Die, Is Dead. ; Gunnar Wennefberg, whose death last Friday at Stockholm was announced in a cable dispatch was the most popular com poser born on Swedish soil. For more than a half-century the Swedes have been singing his songs, and they have taken such a hold on the people that they can never- die. Whether it be his patriotic songs and marches, his students' songs or religious hymns, all are the best of i their class, and have attained the widest popularity. His versatility as a musician ; was remarkable, but in addition he dis tinguished himself as a poet, scholar, teacher, and, in the field of politics, of the whole world of art he was a care ful student, and he spoke with authority on every branch. That his place in Sweden will, or even can, be filled, is extremely doubtful. Gunnar Wennerberg was of a peasant family, though his father, who bore the same name, was a clergyman at Lldkop ing, where the great composer was born Oct. 2, 1817. He thus was nearly 84 years at the time of his death. At the Univer | sity of Upsala, which he entered to take a philosophical course, he attained the master's degree in 1845. y It was at Upsala that he became ac quainted ! with the Juvenals, a merry group of gifted young men whose asso ciation inspired his earlier Juvenal songs. Later appeared "Gluntame," a collection of duets for barytone and bass,which have been sung everywhere for over a half century. - Serious philosopher though he was, he .was attracted by the gay. student life. y In 1849 he became ; Instructor In philosophy in Skara academy, • where he i remained for sixteen years. King Carl XV., an intimate friend, ; called Wenner berg to Stockholm to take charge of the .new museum of art, a position ! for i which ; he was peculiarly "well qualified, but the ; plans went awry and he became chief of a bureau * ■; in '. y the ; church -.:." department. While holding this position he was elected a member -of the Swedish academy, suc ceeding " Christian Erik - Fablcrantz. In 1870, 1 after a change in the ministry, the bureau chief was called to the head of the department, remaining -< there five years, making as he did everywhere hosts i of friends. < In particular he was Instru- I mental In the introduction of various re- I forms; \ which gave universal satisfaction, j Another • ministerial change relieved him of his 1 portfolio, but in 1875 the 'govern | ment appointed him | governor of Vexlo, a j position' he I held forJ thirteen | years, % a I part of which' time he also served "in the ' first chamber yof the * riksdag. ' : Prime ; Minister f Bildt called the ; great scald to : theH church f portfolio, which he looked ; after most faithfully until 1891. * While a master lln composing songs of ; gaiety and ] love, Wennerberg i was also a ! man of t deep i religious i feeling, which is 1 nowhere *« more ' • plainly shown " than ?£ his famous - rendition in music .of the psalms SATURDAY EVENING, AUGUST 31, 1901. of David. Among his patriotic hymns are "Hor of Svea," "0 Gud Some Styrer Ver dens Oden," "Sta Stark dv LJusets Rid dervakt," and many others, each breath ing a live patriotism of the highest kind. The high esteem in which he was held was fully shown in the many jubilees and anniversaries held in his honor, which were observed almost as public holidays. On the semi-centennial of the appearance of "Gluntame," and on his seventieth and eightieth birthdays, he was honored by the whole nation without stint. Youth ful humor and manly earnestness and dig nity were combined in Wennerberg in a happy manner, and his personal popular ity was as great as was that of his songs. NORTHERN LIGHTS An Expedition Makes Some Very Im portant Discoveries. Dr. Adam Paulsen's expedition to Ice land to study the Aurora borealis has re turned with a large quantity , of data, sketches, photographs and paintings as proofs of interesting and valuable" dis coveries. The expedition was dispatched under the auspices of Dr. Adam Paulsen, director of the Copenhagen Meteorological Institute. It consisted of Lieutenant La Cour, M. M. Middilbo and Kofoed, physicists, and the artist, Count Herold Moltke. It was wonderfully well equipped with apparatus. Dr. Paulsen most enthusias tically describes the expedition as follows: The party left Copenhagen, and arrived after an extraordinarily favorable passage at Akureyrl, where operations were Immediately commenced. Count Moltke has brought home from this expedition some unique oil paintings of the auroral displays, which are very valuable as well as Interesting, says Dr. Paulsen. Be sides the regular observations of clouds very interesting observations were taken also of what s has been termed "Mother of Pearl Clouds," which were observed twice during the expedition. , ■» Both times the observation of such clouds took place during the noon times. The spec troscopes revealed nothing noteworthy about them, yet had such clouds been self luminous the strong daylight would likely have pre vented the expedition from seeing the actual spectre of these clouds. To scientifically explain the work of the expedition would be impossible, except in book form or by a series of lectures, but it is sufficient that after the foregoing details to state that the facts gathered by measurements and photographs have put science on the track of wonderful discoveries concerning the aurora borealis, a phenomenon about which the world in general as yet knows very little, the expedition at Lulur having made valu able discoveries concerning the ultra violet part of the spectre, which has for centuries puzzled scientists all over the world. BJORNSON'S POSITION Is a Pan-German and Tells His Crit ics Why. Having announced himself as a Pan- German in an address before the Press club of Berlin Bjornstyerne Bjornson was subjected to bitter censure in Denmark which naturally can not forget the two Schleswick wars in which the Danes lost so much. Bjornson replies to the critics In his characteristic way, that any one should question-his love and sympathy for Denmark grieves him In view of his many writings in its behalf and especially in view of the attacks against him two years ago when he sought to show Germany what great injustice was being done to the Danes of Schleswick for persisting In keeping alive the Danish language and culture. Nevertheless he says the Scan dinavian countries have no future together with France and Russia, but their fate must be linked with their kin in Great Britain, Germany, - Holland and America. All the German races should unite for the preservation of universal peace. Such a union would : benefit the people of North Schleswick and moderate the lllwlll exist ing between r Germany and England as well as other national prejudices. Fifty Years of Cold Water.
