But those who may be fortunate enough to be in Philadelphia will see the oid boys brace up again.

BEAUTIFUL AND SOLEMN SERVIOE In Which DUUep Coleman and the Rector of the Church Took Part—Large Congregation« Heard Dr. Hulburd at Grace—In the Other Churches of Var ious Denominations. Sunday, September 1G, will be a day long remembered in the history of St John's Protestant Episcopal Church. At every service the beautiful Gothic build ing was crowded with members of the congregation, and their friends, not withstanding the midsummer like heat of the day. Msny members of the Brotherhood of St. Andrew were also present. The church has been thoroughly done over, and iniptoved. The decorations are truly artistic, and when setoff by palms, daisies, golden rod and other blooming potted plants, It presented a beautiful appearance The memorials to Alexis Irento DuPont, and Joanna DuPont, his wife, the founders of the church, were trimmed about with smilax. The first service was at 7 30 o'clock yesterday morning, when an altar la the chapel, the gift of J. Cloud Elliott, was dedicated to the memory of Rev, Stevens Parker, D D,, the first rector of the church. The altar is of oak. of Gothic design and beautifully carved In bold relief. Panels at the rear of the altar and above It, contain pictures of the four evangelists. Over the »liar Is a Gothic arch, bearing the inscription, "Tue Good Shepherd Qlvetb His Life For His Sheep.'' At 10 30 the ordination of Deacon John S Littell to the priesthood took place. The services were unusually apieron and impressive The ordination sermon was preached by Rev. T. Gardiner Littell, father of the candidate, and former rector of the pariah. His discourse was eloquent, and delivered with much feel ing Bishop Coleman presented the candi date, and led the litany, and the Im pressive ordination sermon ended with the laying of the hands of the bishop, Revs,- Lit,tell, Hall and Beers upon the bead of the new priest. This was fol lowed by the communion service. The new buy choir, under the direction of Francis R Morrison. w»s beard for the first time. It la composed of twenty boy sopranos, and six tenors and bases The soloists were William Bradford, soprano; Edward Qlisstaan, alto; W. F. McNulty, tenor, and Frank Mason, bass The singing was excellent, that, of young William Bradford being especially so. His voice is pure, flexible and sweet, and full of expression. In the evening Rev. John S. Littell, the newly ordained minister, preached his maiden sermon to a large and interested audience. Service* at Grace. There was a large congregation present yesterday morning at Grace M. E, Church. Mr. Hulbnrd took as his text, "But God hath revealed them untons by His spirit; for the spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God " The doctor spoke of the mysteries which sorround ns In evlry day life, and which while wa give a name, are still unsx piainable, ate secret to ns. We see the results, the fruiis, but are unable to explain the process. Just so in ex periencing Chiistlaiflty. The man who has never experienced the efficacy of prayer, the soul satisfying peace of religion may affirm that there is no such thug, "but," said Dr. Huiburd, "he can't convince me, for I know the one and have experienced the other." Many a man who ia certain that he is a son of God Is not entitled to eoushlp, said the preacher, and many a man who doubts his Christianity may be a son of God. A paradox, but true, nevertheless. A man who reaches the point where bo believes himself a Chris tlan by a series of forms or pursuances, is not neoersatily a Chrietian. Certainly not, unless he has put himself in con dition, has fitted himself for the recep lion of the Holy Spirit. The sermon waa an interesting one and was listened to with closest attention. In the evening Dr, Hulbnrd delivered an able sermon on "Dangerous Crossing," or the philosophy ot intemperance, to a large audience, among which was a number of young men. This is one of a series of special sermons, the next of which will be next Sunday evening on the theme "The House of Death," or tne contributing causes of licentiousness. In Other Churilir*. Rev, L E Barrett, presiding elder of this district, occupied the pulpit at Union M E, Church yesterday morning. In the weeing Rev. J. D. O. Hanna, delivered the dual sermon in bis series, his theme being "The Good Wife " There were large congregations at both services. George W. Stone occupied the pn'plt of the First Unitarian Church, yesterday morning His theme was "Mystery in Religion." and his sermon was an able one. a Rev.
