Day of Worship In the Woods How tbs Sabbath Was Observe at tha Camp GroiUKls. A Vast Throng Present at Sodea's Gran Sunday to Participate la tbo Bells;los Exercises. The interest in the services at Soden's grove, which had been steadily increas ing since the opening or the camp meeting on Tuesday, reached a point Sunday which cou'.d not fail to gratify the most sanguine friends of the under taking. The day was ushered in by a clear, beautiful morning, which stimu lated hopes of an attendance opon the exercises that were more than realized, and the line of vehicles which began to enter the gates at an early hour kept streaming . in without interruption until late in the afternoon. There were people present from all parts oi the county, while the citizens of Emporia turned out almost en masse to the afternoon and evening services. The exercises for the day opened with a good, old-fashioned, soul stirring love- feast, led by Rev. J. T. Hanna, of the M. E. church of this city, who very wisely counseled brevity in witnessing for the Master, and a relation rather of present than of past experiences. An adher ence to this advice made the meeting one of the most interesting and profitable ol the kind which we have ever attend ed, and inspired the hearts of those pres - eut with a spirit of devotion which fitted them for a more thorough enjoyment of the succeeding services. At 11 o'clock a. m. Rev. J. A. Ilyden, of Burlington, preached an animated discourte from the text found in Jere miah 0:1G "Thus aaith the Lord, stand ye in the ways, and see and ask for the old paths which is the good way, and walk therein, aud ye shall find rest for your souls." In view of the religious awakening among the childreu, which has characterized the meeting, the speak er occupied considerable time at the beginning of his sermon, in defining his views on the matter of early conversions and set forth with much earnestness the great importance of leading the little ones into the church and hedging their way about with proper religious influences. 1 he speaker expressed his strong lack ot sympathy with the theory that evil must exist that good may come, and made an earnest appeal to parents to exert their influence to save their children from the pollution of sin and lead them early to the Savior. The paths ot wisdom were then shown to be ways of pleasantness and peace to all who would tread therein, aud the compensations and safety of a Christian life were compared with the deceit and vanity of worldly pursuits, and the dark pitfalls which beset the steps of those who wander away from their father's houe into a strange couutry. Stead fastness in the Christian warfare was urged, and men were not only to stand in the way but to jro l'orttrd from strength to strength, each iirosiiii; forward to the mark of their high calling in Christ Jesus. At the conclusion of the sermon the large congregation dispersed for dinner, and groups might have been seen all over the grounds partaking of basket luncheons, while the boarding tent was most liberally patronized. At 3 o'clock a praise meeting, consist ing ot singing anu giving testimony for Christ, was held, Mrs. Robinson conducting the services. A most excel lent spirit pervaded the meeting, and the brief exhortations of the leader were characterized by the same effective logic and earnest zeal which mark all of her ministrations At 3 o'clock Rev. Dr. Cowlos, of Tope ka, preached to an immense assemblage choosing for his text the pasgaue from Romans, 13-1 : "I beseech you therefore, "brethren, by the mercies of God, thai ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service." The speaker first spoke of the dignity of the human body, and declared that man was the highest order of all God's creatures. The body, said he, is the temple of God. Man is created iu the im age of the Infinite, and all of the highest and best revelations of Jehovah to His children have been made through the medium of man. The evangel of love and pardon which saved a ruined world was brought down from heaven by the god-man who walked the earth, and whose compassion was stim ulated by a knowledge of onr iufirmi tives. The consecration of thet-e tern, plea of the living God to Him who dwells therein is our reasonable service. And this offering should include all our faculties aud powers. We should con secrate our brains to Christ to the end that we may present his teachings in the mosl intelligent aud rational light, and that wc may speak and wit ness for him in a manner that may com mand respect for the faith of which he is author and finisher. Our hands should be consecrated to Christ, and should be em ployed in the exercise of all those ben- eficient offices which were employed by the Great Exemplar, while here on earth, for the alleviation of human misery. Our eyes should be consecrated to Christ, that they may see the truth, and our ears that they may hear aright God's wonderful revelations to man. Our feet should be trained in His service that they may turn aside from thu paths of sin and be directed on errands of love and mercy, and seek the way that leads unto eternal life. Our consecration to God should involve all our powers, "that wc may grow up unto Him in all things, which is thu head even Christ." The sermon was one of the most effective which has been delivered during the meeting, and commanded the closest attention of the vast assembly wilhia range of the speaker's voice. 1 he children's meeting took place at 5 o'clock and was led by Mrs. Robinson It is a noted characteristic of this gifted woman that while her sermons appeal to the reason of the mosl intelligent and cultivated audiences, she addresses her self with equal effect to little childreu, so simplifying the messages of the gos pel that their hearts are tendered and their souls filled with loye toward the Great Shepherd w ho delights to gather the lambs in His arms and bear them upon His bosom. The religious concern manifested by the children dur ing the meeting has been one of its moet striking features, and die 5 o'clock meetings are among the interesting ex ercises of the day. In the evening at 7 o'clock a spirited prayer meeting, in which much enthusi asm was manifested, was led by Rev, Allen Buckuer, and was participated in by a large number of Christian people. There was a copious outpouring of the spirit, and the meeting proved an excel lent preparation for the services which followed. By the time the hour for evening ser vices had arrived the space surrounding the preachers' aland was crowded with people, and when the opening hymn wis announced almost every foot of the eating accommodations on the grounds was occupied and fully two thousand people must have been present to hear the temperance address of Mrs. Robin son, which was delivered by re quest of the Woman's Chrii tian Tern. perance Union of this city. While the subject is one whose gravity renders it a matter or interest to every man, woman and child in the community, the theme has become so hackneyed by years ot discussion that it is on of the most difficult achievements of a public speaker to enlist and hold the attention of an audience by the presentation of this subject unless a wide departure is tkn from the ordinary method of treatment, and care is exercised in piesenling the phases of this old problem in a new light. Mrs. ltobin- son seems to possess the. gift of bring ing forth from the treasury of the Lord's storehouse things new and old, and never during her stay here were her powers in this direction so forcibly illustrated as last evening. The speaker based her address upon the following Scripture: "And His name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, the Ever lasting Father, the Prince of Peace." She announced as her opening proposition that in whatever enter prise men may engage whether finan cial, political, socia it matters not what, however fully '.j may en dorse the ends to be ai ed and the objects to be achieved, they must be sat isfied as to the character of the leaders who advocate the cause and give direc tion to the undertaking. In the cause of temperance reform, there have been employed many human devices and ex pedients for the suppression of the mon strous evil which has carried woe into so . many tnousana ot uomes, bat all remedies outside of the line of Christian effort have failed to reach the disease. We have been battling with a deadly ailment with oar feeble cures and we have just begun to realize that we are sitting at the bed side of a sick nation stricken to death with a contagion which has cov ered the body politic with wounds and putrifying sores and now we are begin ning in call upon the Great Physician who has the only remedy which will stay the pestilence which walketh 1 darkness and the destruction whic wastelh at noon-day. We may induce men to sign pledges; we may legislate against the liquor traffic, but unless we bring the victim of rum the Savior; unless he is endowed with the liberty wherewith Christ has made us free ; unless we supplement our legis lation with our prayers, our efforts to stay the tide of evil which is sweeping over the land will be vain and our hands powerless. God is the great leader of the movement against rum. The salva tion ol Christ is prohibition from all sin; this work of temperance reform be longs where the great apostle placed it, with righteousness and the office of the Holy Spirit. Thu woman's crusade, that most won derfuliuovemenl iu the annals of social reform, was cited as an instance of the wonderful efficacy of prayer, and the consecration of shrinking women to to the grand work of recuing their bus bands and sons as brands from the burn ing was most graphically portrayed. The speaker reviewed the advance of temperance reform in this country. showing that while the progress of the work hol been slow and many anxious hearts had fainted with de ferred hope, the Lord was beginning to make bare His arm and those who are marching under His banner against the hosts of sin will reap in due season if they do not faint. Eloquent allusion was made to the errand achievements in this direction in Kansas, and the prediction was made that ere long all the states in the union would emulate her example and that the future was rich in promise for those who stood to their arms and went forth under God to new conquests. The address was one of the most won derful appeals that has ever been heard in Emporia and the audience were held spell.bound by the force of jm eloquence which it would be utterly futile to at tempt to describe. At the conclusion of Mrs. Robinson's stirring appeal an invitation was ex tended for seekers to come forward to ths altar, and a number of conversions took place before the close of the meet ing. The day was one of continuous re ligious effort, and the results were of a moet encouraging nature. It affords us sincere pleasure-to observe that the best of order was preserved upon the grounds, and the decorum which pre vailed throughout the encampment spoke more eloquently than aught else for the influences of the services. IMPORTANT BUSINESS CUANOK. (irlfttth's Hardware and Agricultural Implement Establishment Sold The News received a call one day last week from an old and esteemed ac quaintance, Hon. A. M. Ulair, of Otta wa, who was accompanied by C. W. Gil lett, of Lawrence. They announced their intention of coming to Emporia to engage in the hardware and agricultural implement business if satisfactory arrangements could be consummated. Wc were not a little surnrised last Monday to leurn that they had become thu owners of the old and popular establishment of J. M. Griffith & Co. The result shows that our new comers meaut business, aud they have "taken in" one of the best bus iness stands in the city. This house was established here in hardware and agri cultural implements iu 1870, and has always enjoyed a first class reputation and a heavy trade. The Messrs. Grifflth J. M . and Will, the latter of whom com menced business for himself many years ago as a page in the legislature, as well as the eld lime clerks of the house, have enjoyed the confidence and esteem of the public fur a dozen years. We but ex press the uniyersai wisu oi our com munity when we say wc hope the cbauge will not result in taking any of the gen tlemen or their families away from Em poria. Of the new firm Mr. Blair is known by many of our people. He has been prom inent in the state for seyeral years. He was formerly a member of our state sen ate, and served a term as collector of internal reveuues for the state. He has been for some years president of the First National bank of Ottawa, and will be a valuable addition to our buaiiuss circles. Mr. Gillett brings with him a long and valuable experience in the business he will engage in here, aud we bespeak for the new firm a full share ot the patronage of our people. The fam ilies of the new firm will take up their residence iu our city and will be a de sirable acquisition to our society. Owing to the immense amount of traffic on thomain line of the Pacific and M., K. & T. branch at present, occa sioned by the heavy crops coming in, a large amount of extra work is required at the hands of brakemen and other employes. In view of this fact the brakemen on the road have forwarded to headquarters a request for an increase of pay. This movement does not par- take of the nature of a strike in any par ticular, and it is the opinion of the lo cal offlers that the request will be granted. Bada-er Creek Mews. F.

It appears to rain all around as. Corn is one month later than last year on account of the cold, backward spring. If rain should come, it is too late to make the corn and would only Jteep the fodder green and give the farm ers lime to c ut flux. Th ree wee ks ago there was never a better propsect for a crop, and therefore you can't count on a crop till you have il in the crib. Ed.

R. La fferty says that there will be about a half crop of watermelons this year. H. W. Hawkins lost his pocket book containing $30 and several notes.

Aug. 14 w The 'nstitnte was visited this morning by Prof. Carrutii, of thu Sute Universi ty, who talked to the teachers about twenty minutes on the subject of bot any, lie is now traveling over ine state preparatory to publishing a botany of Kansas, wMch will no doubt be a very valuable work. The address was very intciestin;; throughout, and all were convinced that the spcaLer understood the subject on which he was talking. Miss Kuhltnan occupied the time of the literature class this morning with a model recitation in teaching object lessons. She possesses the rare faculty of making all her recitations interesting and attractive to her pupils. There will be a slight change in the t.roirrain of the institute for the last two weeks. Reading and physiology will jrive place to geography and phonics. There were several new names added to the roll to-day, making a total mem bership of DC. Among the visitors were Mr. Stnbbs Mrs. Eastman, Miss Callie Browu, Miss May Eastman. Miss Swim and Miss Hurlburt. Reporter , Tuesday, Aug. 15. There was a committee appointed to day to get up a program for the sociable to be held at the close of the institute, which will be one week froui next Fri day. The.committee will probably.be ready to report by to morrow. The class in literature had a very in teresiing lesson to day on Pope, who was one of the smallest and yet one of the greatest of England's great poets. To morrow the class will have Thompson after which they will take up Emerson and other American writers. The institute was visited to-day by Messrs. Hamilton, Klock, Gallagher and Haines and Mrs. SUslcr.' There are now 93 teachers enrolled, only about one fourth of which number are males. This erhaps accounts for the assertion made by one of our male visitors , that we hail the best class of teachers in attendance he had ever seen at an institute. Reporter The Tcachen,' Institute. Wednesday, Aug. 10. Prof, Hay, of Junction City, who has long been identified with the education al interests of this state, addressed the teachers to-day, at the close of the insti tute. The address abounded in many valu able suggestions to teachers aud showed that the speaker possessed a wide ex perience in institute work. The physiology class closed their work to day with a yery thorough re view and will now take up geography. There were no other changes in the pro- grain, and there will probably bu no more during the institute session.

Commonwealth: Special Agent Cro- well, of the postoffice department, and W. U- Dewey, sheriff of Russell county, brought in yesterday from Russell cottuty as prisoners A. B- Cornell, a prominent man of that county, and at ne time a member of the legislature ut at present editing the Hawkeye, a G ree back paper at Russell ; also C. C. Wychoff, a notary public of Russell county, and E. S. C. Foster, postmaster at Paradise, in Russell county. It seems that Cornell figures a great deal as a mail contractor. Ho put in bids for a route from San Antonio to Bonders, Texas ; one from Sau Antonio to Helena, Texas, and one from Bondera to Rio Frio, Texas. The pro posals were put in in the name of one ipscomb, and John P. Waller and Sam uel S. Smith were his bondsmen. The affidavits the bondsmen made were prepared to be sworn to before Wychoff, as notary public, and the name of O. D. Hyde is down as a witness to the sig natures. For Fome reason, probably be cause the bids were too low, Lipscomb, the bidder, did not take the mails lo carry as per contract, although the con tract was awarded to him. The post- ffice department then began to hunt p the matter to know why the mails had not been carried. Au examination showed that there were no such persons as Lipscomb, Waller, Smith or Hyde. We should have stated that Foster, the postmaster at paradise, certified that the bondsmen were good. Mr. Wycoff, the notary public, confess; that no one came before him but Cornell, and that he certified to the taking of the oath by the bondsmen, who were not before him and who were fictitious persons, at the rt quest of Cornell. Foster says that he certified to the security at the re-quest of Cornell, who stated to him that it was a mere matter of form. Wycoff and Foster are both young men and have probably beeu led into these acts by Cornell.

Editors News: At the county con vention held for the purpose of sending delegates to the state congressional con vention at Topeka, Mr. McClcary, of Americus, 'made a motiou that the dele gation give Mr. Fairfax a reasonable support, which was carried, but which was unsatisfactory to certain political fault-finders who saw fit to create dissat isfaction among the colored people, and insisted that the resolution was mere clap trap to catch the cslored man's sup port. The delegation gave Mr. Fairfax one-fifth ot his entire vote. Certain colored citizens who thought the support not sufficient denounced the "ring" and went in to whoop it up for St. John and for the political fault-finders of this county. What" was the re sult? St. John's convention in this county refused to send Mr. Smith to Topeka as a delegate, although his fit ness was generally and universally con. ceded, and the St. John delegation from this county refused to give the colored candidate for auditor, Mr. McCabe, even a complimentary vote, but fought him from first to last. Do you see the differ ence? Inquirer.

Services Held at the Granada Last Even Ins Order of Ezrelseo To-day Program tor TvMomir, etc. While the heavy rain of Tuesday evening interferred very seriously with the at tendance at the camp grounds, there were a sufficient number present to hold services In the large tent to the left of the preachers' stand, and a most excellent i meeting is reported. Mrs. Robinson .Preached, taking forhertext the words I "Tarsia tho tinl rtk U O 1 ,, .l I. 1'raise the Lord, Oh My Soul," and in a very earnest and eloquent discourse set forth the claims of the Almighty opon the gratitude of His creatures for His wonderful merer toward the chil dren of men. The speaker evidently - 1 dtes not depend upon her audiences lor I the fervent inspiration which marks all I of her exhortations, losin? herself x I completely in her work when breaking 1 me bread of life where only two or three are gathered together as when ad dressing the listening multitude. The little band of worshipers last night claimed and realized the promise, and the preaching of the word was attended by two conversions, both adults. Wednesday the around and seats be ing damp, services were agnin held in the tent, which was well filled by the time the hoar for the opening sermon of the day arrived. This was delivered by Rev. Mr. Barnes, of the Grand Avenue M. E. church of Kansas City, who preached with such telling effect Tuesday after noon. The text upon which his remarks were based was the command of the Lord unto Moses: "Speak unto the Children of Isreal that they go forward". The theme was the development of Christian char acter, and the Divine interposition in behalf of human helplessness. The hopeless bondage of the children of Is rael to their task masters and the final loss, after years of servitude, of all de sire lo shake off their chains was set forth in an effective manner, and a com parison was drawn between the condi tion of the Jews in Egypt and the state of sinners who are in the gall of bitter ness and the bonds of iniquity. The children of Israel, when they were pursued by their enemies and surround ed by the perils which environed their march toward the land of promise fainted with fear and reproach ed Moses for leading them forth in the wilderness to die, preferring bondage to freedom ; graves in Egypt rather than death on the field. Their benighted minds reverted only to thu flesh-pots ot the land where they had so long borne the yoke, and in contemplation of the meagre fleshly comforts they had known they forget the dust of the brick. kiln and the degradation ot their long slavery. So it is with the sinner. He con iders only the fleeting pleasures of the world, and .remembers not the snares and dangers which beset the path of the transgressor on all sides. This command came to the children of Isreal when there seemed to be no possibility of deliverance from the hands of their foes. Behind were the chariots of the Egyptians before them the sullen waters of the Red sea, but the manifestations of Divine power which attended all their march through the wilderness did not fail them in the hour of their supreme need, and at the up-lifting of the wonder-working rod of Moses, the waters parted and the children of Israel crossed over on dry land, while the waters which had stood as a wall on their right hand and on their left returned and covered the Chariots and hosts of Pharaoh that came after them. . The command of God to all His chil dren is to go forward. The way may seem closed j the path into which His hand leads us may seem dark and dan gerous, but He can make a way of es cape out of every temptation, and His power will always be made manifest in the deliverance of His children. Though God often "moves in a mysterious way His wonders to perform," His promises are sure to ripen into the golden fruition of joy and peace. The necessity of ceaseless activity in the development of a consistent Chris tian life was urged with great earnest ness, and the beneficient uses ot adversi ty and sorrow in perfecting a symmetri cal and well rounded character, were dwelt upon in an exceedingly effective manner. The speaker closed bis sermon with a ferveut appeal to his hearers to go forward in the path of duty, trusting God for deliver ance from every temptation, and relying upon the promises of Him whose care is over all His creatures. This afternoon an excellent sermon was delivered by Rev. Mr. Gullett, of Eureka, who was formerly stationed at Americus, and the close attention com manded by the speaker gave evidence of the interest felt by the audience in the presentation of the truths set forth in his very acceptable discouse. This evening Mrs. Robinson will preach, and as the grove is in excellent condition, having been thoroughly dried by the sunshine of to-day, a large attendance may be expected. To-morrow there will be preaching in the forenoon at the usual hour. At 8 o'clock a general love feast will be held, and in the eyenine Mrs. Robinson will preach the closing sermon of the meeting. Railroad Backet. The Santa Fe road announces a five cent reduction on freights to 1 Paso and Southern Pacific points between Yuma and Deming. General Manager Wheeler, General Superitendent Mellon, General Freight Agent Goddard aud General Passenger Agent White, of the Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe railroad, are in Chicago, and are very much elated at the outlook.

They say there is more traffic now in sight than the road will be able to move in months.
