Interesting t-xorclses In tho Opera

The storm lat Saturday did not abate
the ardor of our Methodist friends, and
th y were astir early in th morning
making linal preparations for laying the
corner stone of tiie new church. Some
di -appointment was expressed when a

Lliss rxprvssini; his regret that lie could
not lie here. Then a little impatience

any completion ot the e hurch. He y:iid
that Whatever had been started in Abi::i
had been pushed to completion. Some
time., said the governor, business comes
to a town. Whirl) is r.ol )u n, f,. i ,1 t,. tl..,
ilizens thereof: other industries are
stalled, wmcn add to the material tiros

AfP r an anthem by (he church choir,
Hon. Washington Cardm r was intro
luced. Mr. Cardia l- be-an his remarks
by saying that w hile, so far as he knew,
(ioy. Kieh was not identitied with any
chri-tian denomination, he was identi
fied with, and iiih rested in every agency
that works for the ood of the common
wealth. He then said that while some
of the ol.jt cts lor which the church has
been organized are not stated in its dis
cipline, the -jrcat bodvof its memlM-rship
has taken the Master Teacher as a
preceptor, and is trying V, advance the
work which He started. The church
building is only tin- material by which
the work of the Church is canned on.
The membership is only! he visible form,
liehind which is the spirit of the Living
Cod. As men consider linaiice, the
( 'hurch is a failure, as it lias never de
clared a dividend, but on the contrary,
invariably has to levy a t;c: on the stock
holders. Notwithstanding this, men
have always bu n ylad to irive to the
Church for the piod H doe. as a moral
educator, believin:, as they do, that
morality is not onJv the foundation but
the ran stone of manhood and w hum n-
hood. The Church is th
UCency with that object in view. The
public school is to develop and educate
