between the different writers to be with

J ust s I must Chi lstlans be separated from
the world in order that the church may
fulfill its mission. The society was
heavenly. Jesus leads only into the best
society. Saints and angels are the
associates of true Christians. The pres

immortality of the soul and the resur

i. 7; "If we walk in the light as He is
in the light, we have fellowship one
with another, and the blood of Jesus
Christ his eon, cleanseth from all sin."
He said in part: "The blood of Christ is
the cleansing power for our sins. Man
is a sinner; the law demands his Ilfs but
Jesus offers his 'ife in man's stead. By
the cleansing we are made children of
God. Walking in the light is having our
minds iu unison with God's mind. Sin

they hste the truth. " The sermon was

Three min ites walk to »Fifth and Union, where a depot is now
almost buiiù for the new Eighth street extension electric line.
One minuta to Front and Green h il avenue, which is the pro
posed terminus of the Front and Union Line extended, and
which is to- be an elcatric line. Oü*e minute to Front and
Webb, where you can i 4 ke the stieam cars for Water and Mar
ket or Delaware avenue and DuPoot streets every hour, for
five cents. The B. & 3 *' R. R. Company have ordered the
removal of the buildings now at this point, preparatoiy to
making extensive improvements ;at that point. The streets are
all now being-graded, electric ligl its are to replace the gasolene
lamps next month. New all we ask you to do is to come out
and look at this land, price lan d in 01 her places, consider the
matter well and the imp.evement s, location and the chances to
double and treble your money in a short time. One hundred
dollars in bank will bring you about $150 in ten years, $100
here wouid bring you more th an double that in two to four
years, and possibly four times as much. For a home, contem
plate living in a nice col'age, wit h a little garden surrounding
it, shade tiees, vegetables-, Howei s, fruits, porticos where you
may sit, instead of front steps, 01 1 the pavement, or contracted
back yard, .'und all of this for 1 ess than you can get a com
mon house for away in ihe city, with an opportunity to own
one and never own the ether. ] remember, we never pass a
title to anyone only those whom we know to be thoroughly
respectable. Remember, these 1 ots are getting scarcer every
day. We offered the sa.ne inch icements several ) ears ago to
sell lots ten squares further in, hi ut could not do it to-day for
five times the price we got then, with less prospects then than
now for their enhancement. W e do not ask you to take our
representations, but coma and 1 00k for yourselves, and don't
say it is so far out, for if it was further in you could not buy
for three times as much as those lots are row bringing. Don't
expect Market street pr >perty 1 or suburban prices. It costs
nothing to locJk and inquire. 1 itle guaranteed for 100 years.
TERMS.—$10 carh on ea ch lot as soon as knocked off
and $5 per month until paid f( >r; or 5 per cent off for cash;
terms to be complied with on o r before the following Saturday.
Hacks leave Sixth and Ma rket streets at 3.30 o'clock.

A Mistaken Idea.
So widely known is our
reputation for selling good
Clothing that some peo
ple imagine our goods
too hoe or "too high
priced" for them to buy.
Now the facts are that
while we cater for the
very best, it don't
only the high priced, but
our aim is to supply the
very best to be had for
the money. When
buys a pair of Pants from
us they are to be the very
cheapest he could have
purchased, and to be
. cut as to be an
special care to have gar
ments properly cut, well
trimmed and made and at
the lowest prices.
