Kingdom or the Extension of tho
Canse. " Text Matthow 18; 31 to 33
and 45 to 40. The sermon on the
three parables of the mustard seed,
the leaven and the pearl of gieat price
-- must have been very interesting, ns is
set forth in the Tienton paper.
At the conclusion of the service
several volumes of sermons and other
books woro presented to Mi. Coates
on behalf of the congregation as a
token of esteem as he returns to tho
institute. Mr. Baker bIbo presented
him with a book. In the evening Mr.
Baker preached from Isaiah 1; 18
An anthom was snug by tlis choir and
Mr. nnd Miss Coates sang a duet.
Then followed a description of Mr.
Baker’s course of study, where he was
born, South Amboy, nnd that he will
be officially installed on Tuesday

local Baptist pastors, Rev. J. L.

Olivet, the Rev. S. V. Whitmore, of
Philadelphia, Mr. Baker’s predecessor
there, nnd the Rev. J. Y. Irwin, of

TRAIN OFF TRACK I
AT PRINCESS BAY.

Switch was Open but no One was
Hurt—Another Delay at
New Dorp.
_
Yesterday the commuters on the
Rapid Transit railroad had the pleas
ure of putting up with some trouble.
The train which nrrives in Totteuville
at !) o’clock in the morning, was be
ing drawn past New Dorp by engine
No. 6, in charge of Driver Lovell, j
when a steam valve burst. It was!
necessary to send to St. George for |
another engine to pull the train. A
delay of 25 minutes was caused by the
accident.
But more serious was the accident
of the engine pulling the train due in
Tottenville at 11.05. The engine was
going past Princess Bay at a good
rate of speed. The engineer did not
notice that the switch was open until
he was right on it, then, although he
put on the brakes, it was too late for
the engine and the first coach ran olf
the track. No one was linrt, although
all of the passengers were shaken up.
At Princess Bay there is only a single
track, so all traffic on the Rapid
Transit road was delayed until 1
o’clock
DANCE TONIGHT.
