Evening Ghat
; Rev. Baird Mitchell talked to hisi
| parishoners yesterday morning about
: sin and its punishment. He remark-,
cd that many did not go to church
because they did not want to hear
a sermon on hell. "'The gospel as the
Lord preached it is a message ol
goodness which stands in the foreground
but God's severity must not
be forgotten. The Lord came to save
the world?He seldom spoke of pun;
ishment. anymore than a father should
. speak of punishment to the child tryj
ing hard to be good. It was only
i man's awful recklessness at the last
which brought words of condemnation
from the Lord?words in which he
warned them of punishment.
In every congregation are the cart1/^co
invinv with cin find TilftV- '
ing "with fire. They need to be told j
of punishment. The new testament!
savs sin is punished inevitably. We i
live in a moral universe. The Biblti
says there are two crates?one is nar-l
row and the other wide and man may'
choose. Sin is punished naturally?'
not mechanically?in accordance with I
law. IVien reaDs what he sows. He1
who sows to the lower life will reap]
I that?corruption and disaster. He]
] who sows to the spirit will reap the
I things of the spirit. In the court of;
i life there is no cisearriage of justice;
i though in the court of man. many innocent
are punished and many who j
are guilty escape
There are many in the world today]
! who would be happier if they were;
i locked in Jail. It is not possible to'
escape one's conscience. Cain went!
i loose tout with the mark of the mur-,
| derer on him which caused him to'

i I can bear. Divine justice Is so just i

! all sunbeams and though there are
j thickets and briers and horrible asj
pects of nature?these contrasts exist
j for a purpose. History is made of
| contrasts?the Bible is a book of coni
trasts?there is the sweet and bitter
j in every human cup. It is foolish.
' therefore, to believe that ire are in
! this world to be babied. We are re;
sponsible for everything?dollars or]
j talenls, and the truth is our besti
| shield. We must than take heed toi
' the word of God?words of blessings'
: or of punishment and never lose sight 1
: of the fact that we are his children i
' over whom he is move watchful than!
any mother." The foregoing were;
Rev. Mitchell's words to his congrega-j
:!on yesterday morning?spoken with;
treat emphasis and much thought and!
; feeling.
j We were very glad yesterday to
J walk unafraid to church. Even rub;
ber shoes were left at home by many?
i for the time in many weeks. Coining
! down various hills about the city
j proved a pleasant journey and it was
j almost impossible to believe that but
a few days ago we faced one of the j
! biggest slippery-ice problems the cltyj
! has ever known. A fine back-whisk
j ered cardinal has made an appearance ]
] in the vicinity of Monroe street and
j the scarlet spot of color here and there
j in the bare tree-tops drates many eyes,
j "Cheer, cheer, cheer." sings the cx|
quisite bird and "Good-cheer-goodclieerl"
Some translate the last to
: "Wet-year-wet-year." but ire hope the
| prediction will not he true for a few;
j weeks anyway. A short while of sun j
i and warmth and gentle days will do |1
i much to establish courage for what]
i may come later. Just now nearly ev- j
eryone is .tired of strenuous weather. J
One robin does not make a spring;
! as we have been told. If it were so? |
j spring would already be here for sev;

city during the last three days. Yesj
