. CLOSING EXERCISES
Seventh Annual Commencement
Mt. Vernon Collegiate
h.'' .v - Institute.
RKV. A. E. EWERS.
Never has the school, during the
seven years of its existence, made
such rapid progress, as it has since
it has been under the present man
agement. The average attendance j
for the last two yearn, has almost
doubled that of any former years,
while the general satisfaction given,
both to pupils att.l alike,
has been far superior.
The closing exercises, of the Mt. j
Vernon Collegiate Institute were
begun, with the preaching of the
Haccalaure 'te sermon in the College
chapel Sunday morning, by
the Rev. V. A. Iseuheart. of Richmond.
The ohoir composed of
Misses Dove B. Letcher, and Mary
D. Cox, and Messrs Eugen Mullins,
Claud Cox and others Sang ouejoraUo"
Stanza of "Praise God from whom
aU Blessings flow," after which.
Cev. A. E. Ewers offered a very
short and impressive prayer. Song,
"Consecration was sung. The
scriptural lesson read, was Paul's
first letter lu the Romans and first
chapter, the 16th verse of the same
chapter; "For I am not ashamed
of the of Christ; lor it is the
power of God unto salvation to
every one that beliveth; to the Jew
first, and also to the Greek" was
chosen for a text. The Ricumoud
Theologian spoke in part as follows:
"This is the best Paul could say
about the Gospel of Christ; he could
say it of nothing else; there were
other Gospels, but lor them he 1
blushed with shame. Everywhere
Paul preached, he met the Gospel ;
of the Greeks. Uheir preaching
was a Gospel of Sentiment; the love
of the beautiful, which found expression
in temple, picture and
statue; the civilization built upon
their Gospel crumbled into ruin."
' There was also the Gospel of
the Romans. A Gospel of law.
As Paul viewed the life buiL upon
this Gospel he blushed for shame
of it. lie found Roman society
rotten to the core. These Gospels
are still preached, but the failure ot
Rome and Greece ought to make u
(realize, a civilization built upon
.any other Gospel but the Gospel of
Christ, is doomed to fail."
"There are other Gospels preached
today., , of which, we ought to
he ashamed, the Gospel qf Christian
science, that all pain is a delusion.
To he all mind so as not to
mind anything anywhere but have
a mind like the lobster, which has
110 mind. The Gospel of Sentimentality,
that children are little
angles; to allow a child to fellow
its impulses, thus allowing it natural
development, assuring just that
character God iuteuded for each
particular one. The Gospel, of
Dowieisiu. which is but food for tlw
gulls. The Gospel of agnosticism1
a knownothingisin, which wou'd
iead to intellectual suicide. The
Gospd, of Indiferentism, which
would lake God from His Throne,
and break down all destinction
trr.th and error; gooo and
evil; love of God and love of self,
Heaven and Hell. The Gospel of
Spiritism the practice of
deming theofTice of the Holy
Ghost, to lead unto all truth and
1 s ening to apparitions made up by
some hair brained medium These
are not i he Gospel of Christ. They
will lead to eternal shame. The
Gospel nf Christ alone has in it the
power and it alone will lead to
Uernal glory." The quartet. Misses
Cox and Letcher, and Eugene
Mulluii and Claud Cox, sang.
' Gently Lord, OGentlv Lead Us,"
after which the benediction was
