Preached at the Different F.vangelieul
Rev. A. Hoffman preached yesterday
morning in the First Methodist churi h
trcm the text, "H;m hath God exalted
with his right hand to be a prince and
a Savior, for to trive repentance to Is
rael and forgiveness of siDs:" Acts,
V:31. The speaker said in part, we
really kcow little of princes in our day
and country, although we have imita
tions of them in the New York 400. The
spirit of our land is not favorable to an
aristocracy. The true prince
is the man who has risen
because of his own worth. They
are first among men because they are
possessed of some incentive that spurs
them on to be of marked good to their
fellow men. These men are very often
of humble origin. Christ was of such
but he bad within him what made him
a prince and a Savior. He was first
and last. In the course of his remarks
the speaker rather deprecated making
so much of the saying "lay up some
thing for a rainy day." We can not
tell when we may be called away, and
it may be just when we have got stores
laid up for our supposed old age. Set
your affections on things that last
In referring to temptations, Mr.HotT-
man said he went over to Juarez New
Year's eve to gather information about
local gambling for a letter, and he was
somewhat surprised to notice a mem
ber of his church over there a lady.
But she was doing nothing, however,
beyond watching the gaming. Then
the preacher said he looked the place
carefully over and was unable to see
that the better class of Mexicans w-re
either there or in the saloons which
infest the place. But he did see a
number of Americans. The Mexicans
were at home and not spending their
time-in the gambling hells. Piles of
money were exposed on those gaming
tables, 2o00 in one pile alone. And
what for? For the same reason that
you take a bit of toasted cheese and
bait a mouse trap with it. It was to
attract the unwary, the avaricious, the
covetous, the greedy into engaging in
the game. The speaker raid he had
no desire at all for money coming
through such channels, although he
often had need of the wherewithal. If
a roan is a Christian he will not want
money gained through gambling. He
regards first the kingdom of Cod and
his righteousness. It is better to have
the Lord Jescis Christ come into our
hearts and give us heavenly gifts, gifts
of consecration to the service of our
AT TRINITY CHUKCH.
Rev. J. T. French preached a strong
sermon last night in Trinity to a large
congregation from the text, "The moun
tains shall bnug peace to the people."
Psalms LXXI1:3. The speaker said in
part: the bible is compact with words
and phrases bearing the idea of peace.
The peace of the soul is to be honestly
found, not in descending to the lovrer
conditions of one's make-up, but in the
freedom of our cabilities. It is the
highest quality of our nature brought
out in full development. When we
want peaco we are prone to go to some
thing effeminate and delicate in nature.
But we secure the real p-ace through
power and strength, Christian peace is
attained through spiritual energy. The
caged bird never finds peace as he

Men of conviction, of reason are those
who have left a name worth having in
this world. A man developes a
chritiian pharantsr as he reaches un
into the higher life, and loves his i
neighbor as himself.
In applying the principles oi tne text
to uubiic life, the speaker said triat
officers who control municipal affairs
are weak and have no stammina where
the la.v is not enforced. But where
officials are stalwart in intelligence
and morality you will lind an excellent
and effective police force, and where
citizens feel that they are secure in the
peaceful possession of their homes and

liolm. Tt. is neace that comes through
power. Peace also comes through
pathos appealing to th heart and to
the nobler instincts. Only those who
have experienced the pangs of suffer
ing can appreciate the sufferings of
others and extend a sympathy that can
be understood and which wiil be ade
quate. Conquer pain through sufiVr
ing. If you have a sore soul, then go
to him who was a man of sorrows and
acquainted with griefs for true and
genuine consolation. Christ is refuse
and sympathy for the sorrowing in all
walks of life. He has the troubles of
the world resting on his shoulders.
Find him, and then we will have good
heart when we come to face the in
evitable. No man was ever a comfort
er, the comforter is the holy spirit who
was sent back by Christ when he
descended on high. Christ can sym
pathize with us because he was tempt
ed like we are.
AT THE l'KESU YTEKIAX CHURCH.
Rev. W. H. Moore preached to
crowded houses as uruul yesterday at
both services. His evening text was.

man ever painted a great picture, won
an important battle, or wrote a great
book who did not love solitude, have
seasons of retirement. Paul pondered
the problem of life for three years iu

his career of an apostle of Jesus. David
