"WHERE ART THOU?"
Aa, Admirable Sermon t>* ™ r - C
Mr. Moody did a hard day's work yes- i
terday. In the morning he held a service j
at Tasadena, which brought together one t
of the biggest congregations ever seen iv t
that place, and at 3 o'clock in t
the afternoon he appeared on the i
platform at the Pavilion to deliver
his promised Bible lecture on "Assur
ance." There was a very large i
attendance present to participate in the
impressive proceedings, which were ren
dered very effective by a praise service '
conducted by Miss Boole and Mr. Steb- 1
bins. It was half-past 4 o'clock ere Mr. i
Moody left the hall, yet he was on hand
again before 7:30, when as large an audi
ence as on the preceding occasions filled ,
the mighty building to overflowing. The '
usual prayers and hymns were first given,
and then the evangelist delivered what
E roved to be the strongest sermon
c has, so far, given in this city.
Thoroughly carried away by his subject,
he took his auditors with him, and there
was breathless silence as his sweeps of
imagery found veDt in eloquent and
passionate words. The text chosen was
the 9th verse of the 3rd chapter of
Genesis, "Where art thou," and before
reading it Mr. Moody said that it was
the oldest text in the Bible, and the first
voice that came from heaven after the
Fall. "It was not the voice of anger,"
■aid the orator, "but of a loving iatner,
calling to his children in tones
of anguißh at their loss. Ask yourselves
the questions that doubtless Adam and
Eve conjured up in that first habitation
of man, 'Who am I?' 'What am I?'
•Where am I going to?' "In speaking on
the subject," continued the evangelist,
"I will divide my audience to-night into
three classes —those that profess to be
Christians, the bßcksliders, and those
that have never tasted the joys
of heavenly inspiration. Now to
the first section let me to-night
enforce the meaning of those
words 'where art thou.' The greatest
obstacle and hindrance to the goßpel is
lethargy, for thinking that you are
Cnristians, you are satisfied. Mothers
and fathers, pans, and ask yourselves if
you are not standing in the way of your
own children. A son of a noted minis
ter who was as equally famed for his
piety as his father, was asked if it was
his father's preaching that had saved
him. 'No, he' replied, 'it was his life.'
Example is better than precept—a
thousand times better. At this
afternoon's prayer service I was
▼cry much affected to hear resounding
from ail parts of the hall: 'Pray for my
wayward boy;' 'Pray for my mis
guided son.' The heartbroken words of
the mothers who spoke them sank deep
into my heart, but I could not help
thinking: 'Is there not something wrong
in our homes that is causing all this.' I
remember reading in the papers of a
father and his child being out on the
top of a plateau. The parent tiring,
lay down and slept. When he
awoke his babe was gone and, rushing
with a dread suspicion in his mind to
the edge of the precipice, he saw his in
fant lying at the foot, mangled and dead.
Are not some of you asleep even now
while your children are going astray.
Mother, where is your boy to-night? I
have often noticed that at meetings like
these the percentage of young men is re
markably Bmall. Why is it? Walk
down any of the principal streets
of the city and look into
the saloons, billiard halls and
gambling dens and that is where you will
find them. It is a mistake parents to
give your boys night-keys, for it is hel p
ing them on to their ruin. Have you
heard of the father who was climbing
the rocky hill, and careless of himself,
•Wis picking out a stony road when sudden
ly he heard a voice saying, 'Papa take a
safe path for I am coming too,' and turn
ing, he saw his little daughter following
him. Think of those words parents, for
the path you are taking, your children
"As to the backsliders, well, have you
ever heard any of them talk? They are
always complaining of churches, hypo
crites, etc., but let them answer the
words of Christ, 'What iniquity have
you found in Me?' You who have left
God will reap untold sorrow some day,
for in the words of Holy Scriptures
'Thine own wickedness shall correct
thee, thy iniquities shall reprore thee.'
"Now for the third section, those who
have never followed in the footsteps of
Christ. Look back on your lives and
you who have passed middle age will
see the tombstones glittering of the loved
ones you have lost. Do you want to
meet them again ? There is only one
place in which you can see your sainted
mother or loved babe once more, and
that is in heaven. Everything tbat
is good and pure is beckoning you on to
a better world; everything that is carnal
and sinful is calling you to remain here.
And i', perctiance, some of you have no
one the rivor of life to beckon
you on, think of the Son of God, who
died nineteen hundred years ago—He is
Another Dispute Rerardinr liui
tare De Laveaux.
Yesterday morning Maroni H. Cram
and Wm. Tweedy, the constable and
deputy constable of Lancaster, were ar
raigned in Justice Lockwood's court for
perjury, on the complaint of Gustave De
Laveaux, and were re'eased on bonds for
their appearance on the day of trial.
Mr. Cram called at the Herald office
during the day with a statement he de
sired to make in answer to the charges
made against him by De Laveaux, which
were presented in Monday morning's
paper. He said that, on the ex
pedition which De Lareaux re
fers to, it was agreed that,
as it was for pleasure as well as tuuness,
only the time actually occupied In engi
neering was to be paid for, and when the
hoar of settlement came, he figured up
that he was indebted in the sum of $13,
bat De Laveaux claimed $42.50, As re
gards losing the surveyor in tbe hills,
whereby that individual was compelled
to pass the night on the ground, Mr.
Cram explained that it was purely acci
dental andoccurred owing to the removal
of the camp. De Laveaux refused to ac
company Crafn back to Lancaster with
out a body-guard, and a friend of his was
allowed in the wagon. They persisted
in talking all the way down,
in what Cram describes as a
lingo, and as he was tired and wanted to
sleep he requested them to desist, and an
altercation ensued between him and De
Laveaux, ending in a row during which
tbe surveyor left the wagon. On bis
turning up in Lancaster however, Cram
states that, being advised by Tweedy, to
avoid any legal disputes he gave De
Laveaux the $42.50, and this was the
evidence adduced in the recent civil suit
instituted by the Frenchman. He now
claims that Cram and Tweedy perjured
themselves in stating that they gave him
the $42.50, and on these grounds yester
day's suit is based. j
Mr. Cram also wished to deny all alle-1

his deputy acted unofficially. He also
repudiates the statement made by a
brakemen of the Southern Pacific to the
effect that he offered 50 cents for every

nr. Snedaker'. Account of the Fes
Mr. W. H. Snedaker, the representa
tive in this territory of the D. A R. G.
road, arrived yesterday with his wife
from New Orleanß, where he has been
participating in the Mardi Gras carnival.
He says that it was a magnificent affair
and that the residents of the Crescent
City never remember such an enormous
attendance at tbe festival before.
The Freman's parade took place on
Sunday, the 3d inst., and on Monday the
King of the Carnival arrived in his
launch of state. Tuesday was the grand
day, and then there were two street pro
cessions, one in the morning and one
in the afternoon, the festivities winding
up with grand balls in the evening. Mr..
Snedaker met the famous "Bill" Mur
ray about town, who will be remembered
in"this city, where he long resided as
representative of the Illinois Central.
Bill was one of the Mardi Gras csmmit
tee, and did the honors nobly, entertain
ing Mr. Snedaker in regal style. A big
representotion of railroad men was on
hand, and one of them, who is asso
ciated with the Fort Scott, became so
hilarious on Tuesday night while out at
Spanish Fort that it was consid
ered prudent to place him in confinement ,
The regular places were full, however,
and be was taken to the menagerie and
locked up in an empty bear cage, where
passed the night.
Mr. Snedaker speaks of a newly-in
vented weighing machine that will be
out west in the course of a few weeks,
and was in full working order in New
Orleans. The person who desires a rec
ord of avoirdupois steps on to a stand,

ferule, awaiting only tbe Industrious settler
to demonstrate its great adaptability to fruits
and the products of this wonderfully prolific

With the immense settlement tha' IXnnrt in
the nature of tilings follow the subdivision
into small farms of such a largo area of valu
able and productive land around UAKiIKS
FIELD; with the steady stream of Immigra
tion that will pour into this section of the
country, transforming the county into one
gigantic colony, with iis countless number of
orchards and vineyards, drawing to it men of
enterprise and capital, RAKEttsFIELD, • Kb
its ineompurnble water power, and other
natural advantages; with its railroad facilities
at band,and the almost positive certainty ol
being the terminal point of. another line, will
grow to, and become, beyond a doubt, a city of
great proportions, and town lots will become
very valuable. Within Ihe last year extensive
improvements have been projected and com
pleted al i;akki:si'lKl.ii. Thesoithkkn
IIOTKL, a large and handsome brick and iron
structure, costing 81iM»,ono, will lie o|>clicd to
the public about the middle of March, cu-ur
ing all who utteu.l this salocomfoitablo accom
modations. A street railway has been in suc
cessful operation for a year, the town is well
supplied with water, and a line quality ol
illuminating gas is furnished from the works
just completed, at prices ruling in other inte
rior cities. Other Important enterprises of a
private nature are contemplated and some well
under way. The lots wo offer are centrally
located, ami within a few blocks of the new
Tor speculative or practical purposes, tbd
villa lots included in this offering must com
mend tin insclws to all. The ir proximity to tho
railroad and the business center of HAKKItS
FIELD. and the remarkable fertility of the)
toil make them extremely valuable for sub-l
urban homes, while their future worth ean|
scarcely be overestimated.
