BRYAN, BV "They are not of the World Even na I am Not of the World" A Oood Report of a Good Ser mon, The severe cold wave experienced on Sunday deterred many from attending the services at the various churche in the city, and the congregation at the Presbyterian church wn considerably below the average in sire. It is to be re gretted that a larger congregation wns not present to listen to the eloquent and tmincntly scriptural address delivered by the pastor, Rev. W. S. P. Bryan. Num erous expression of approval and appre ciation were heard as the congregation dispersed. The more observant Chrif tians are impressed with the incrcnf 'np disposition manifest on the part of thi professing church at large to act mon nnd more in harmony with the world und its maxims, and faithful pastors nrt olten heard sounding a note of warning in that direction. The sermon to which we refer wns pre faced by a brief description of the church from a scriptural standpoint, based upon the word in "the Lord' intercessory p-nyer," recorded in the gospel by John 17: 16: "They are not of the world even as I am not of the world" wordr of prayer addressed with filial reverenci nnd confidence to God the Father, afford ing us an idea ol the intercession wh'.cli lie is continually making on behalf ol His followers. Their burden i concern ing A VERY PBP1NITS CLASS, those whom the Fatner had given Him. lu a previous verse in the chapter is re corded the fact that "I pray not for thi world, but fur them which thou bast given me; for they are thine." Of thit class He says in the words of the text they are not of the world even at I am not of the world." God's Ipve to mankind was set forth it the provision He made, that Christ ' blood was enough to atone for the situ of every man; so that there is no chnrgi nossible against the love of God ; but thi number of those who actually have eter nal life is the snme ns the number whi believe upon Jesus with the addition o hildren and incnpables, for "he that bt- licvah on the Son lintli everlnsting life, mid he t lint belicvethnot on the Son shal ant see life; but the wrath ol God u billet I. on him." It is tin? SKPARATION OP HIS PHOrLB from mankind nt large, which Jesus ex presses in the text, nnd thnt the world at large in the sense of the text is made u of the mass of mankind that belie vet li not upon Him. "A man of the world," then, is simply one who, for any reason. is not a follower ol rsus, the Divine Sm f God. This definition is contrary to n itopular impression, for when men speiil of the world ns a class of men, they mem as a rule, the gay world of society, andu man of the world" is one fnmilinr with the habits of good society and the refili ng intercourse of the well bred, with pos sibly a suggestion of the frivolous disM- pntinns which are called pleasure. Bui in the contrary "a man of the world ' may be very serious and very correct in his habits, blameless in his morality, ti model in his family, liberal in his benevo lence and even regular and methodical in the discharge of certain outward relig ious duties. Thus many who look with contempt upon such petty superficial lives a I manifest in the daily walk ol the man of the world" in the ordinary sense of thnt term, and devote themsel vet to the more serious pursuits of earning fl livelihood or winning a fortune or bene fiting humanity these useful nnd exem plary persons fall under Christ's defini tion of worldlincss, unless they are kcet ing the Father' word and have received Jrsus as their Lord and are being sancti fied in the truth. It may be profitable to consider the PBCI'LIAR FEATURES OF THE WORLD, as a class or body of men. Its hostility to Christ and Hi Word is deeter than mere arbitrary rule can measure; it it more than a mere matter of certain amusment which are called worldly, and which are given an exaggerated import ance a distinctively worldly. The mark of thnt separation nnd hostility are elrnrly indicated in scripture. The world i independent of Christ in tbnt it bn IT OWN OOD. Satan i the god of the world and he hath blinded the minds of men that they lie- lieve not. He i the god of the world be cause he exercise over men the power thnt only a god would have and because he receives from men such servile ohedi ience, nnd he has nothing in Christ be cause Christ has no sympathy with his objects, no acknowledgement of his sov ereignty, no subjection to hi demands nnd Christ' people are like Ilim In thnt they worship not the god of thi world but the Lord Jehovnh who made the heaven and the earth. It is not necessary to the God of this world that his Influence, or for thnt mat ter, his very existence be acknowledged, lor he works best when men are serving him only unconsciously and under some delusion nt to their own freedom. So among men of the world, It is quite cum1 ntnn to deny the personal existence of sntnn and of course hit godhead over this world; nnd yet even at of old the evil spirits possessed men nnd used them for their own purixisci. So the God of thit world mould nnd utilise at hit effective servants the very men who most loudly deny his existence. Kinsis City Tender Beef Can Im? purchased at nil timet from Mar tin's Market, 60 8. Main tt. It is he who suggests to men that there is no God at all and thnt the univeise runs itself, or that there may be a great First Cause, but that he cannot be known, or that if there be a God above He takes no notice of the doings of men. or that if there he a personal God He is too good and too merciful to hold us to account for oar deeds. All of these pop ular theories are very useful to the god of this world in blinding the mind of those that believe not and he uses them with deadly effect while hit dupe are all unconscious of hissovereignty overthem This servitude unconscious though it be and certain ns it is of everlnsting dis grace, and eternal separation from God is a destructive mark of "the man of the world." nit ONLY EtCAPB from it it in the service of Christ for there is no middle ground and all men are tinder either the god ol this world or the Lord God of heaven and earth. This of itself i enough to brand worldlinear as something more than thnt harmless thing which it is often thought to be. It is disloyalty to the One True Gnd, it is idolatry in thnt it worships another than Hr.it is iniquity because it is service to the evil one, it is death because it con signs to the regions of eternal darkness. The world has loo ITS OWN LAW. The church of Christ it admonished. "Be not conformed to thi world;" Rom. 12:2. "Aforetime ye walked according to the course of this world. The spirit thnt now worketh in the children of disobedience;" Eph. 2:;2. These and similar passages imply a law or rule which is peculiar in that it belongs to the world and compliance with it is vigor ously exacted of every worldling, while defiance of it is ground enough for per secution. It is a common delusion that the world is lenient and even lax in its judgments than which there is no greater mistake. It is lax concerning all other laws save God's; but it i 6sedly Intnl. rant where it own are concerned, and takes its revenge, if not in the coarse methods of liodily persecution, then in it her more subtle wavs which are qually effective. This law has various forms of expres sion, line tnnt is to be so common at to lie almost the general law itself requires tne to shnpe his course by "THE SPIRIT OF THB TIMES" m which he lives, to be progressive, which mennt to accommodate himself to the prevailing tendencies, to float with the current of popular opinion and to re spond to the demands of thnt great va riety of things which are said to be "in the air." It matters not how the spirit if the age conflicts with his convictions tr violates the most sacred sentiments if his heart, he is a "mosshack" if he re sists. Another is, WHEN IN BOMB, DO At ROMANS DO, which means, adapt yourself to the views and practices of the people you ore with; if your surrounding are reverent tnd devout it is foolish and even worse for you to be otherwise ; but if your com panions are gay and lively it is equally foolish for you to be serious. So that a man instend of having a character of his own with a definite purpose before bim. s only a mirror in which he reflect the mood of the men and women he meet. "NOTHING SICCKKDS LIKE St'CCBtW," tnd success in any department wins worldly applause. It may be real success as in ricbe or honor, but success in the more amusements is equally lauded and the prise tennis player or the leading nrsman in a boat crew are object of popular admiration, at well at the man if wealth or of influence. But nlat for liim who is a failure even if it be an hon est failure. He is thrust aside at of no interest, and the eager throng rushes on to lay its tribute at the feet of success. BB NOT MIGHTEOt't OVERMl'CH" is of special weight because it is a quota tion from scripture, even though it be listorted from its true meaning. "Hold your religious views but don't intrude them, above nil don't make them a bar to good fellowship" it a favorite applica tion. Of Christian consistency the world is intolerant to the Inst degree and it ex ult! in every violation thereof. The strict observance of religious duty it discountenanced on the ground of Christian liberty and freedom of eon cience, and in this the world has the as sistance of some who fondly imagine that they ore among the people of 'God, but whose voices chiming in with the voice of the world shows thnt they are heartily in sympathy. These laws bind all classes of men of the world. They powerfully influence many so-called Christians who are sup I toned to have come out of the world. The above is merely a synopsis of the sermon delivered, ns jotted down by our reixirtcr, and regret we have not space to publish the sermon complete. A nelllne Works Treat. Ciiicaoo, Mnrch 3.

The storm this morning reminds New Yorkeis of the famous blizzard two years ago, A nunn snovi storm set in ahoui 9 o'clock, ac companied by a brisk south wind, and the city was soon covered with a mantle of white. Many ncccidents due to falls on the slippery sidewalks, were recorded by the various police stations nnd hos pitals before midnight. At midnight the snow was still falling. Union, March 3. In accordance with Gen. Greek's prediction, made two duys ago, that the tem)ernture would fall almost to zero, the weather turned very cold lost night, and snow fell fnstly for about three hours this morning. The ground wns wet, however, from con continual rnins, and the snow has now melted entirely away. The weather is still very cold, with the sun shining brightly. St. Augi'STINB, Fla March 3. The thermometer Inst night went down to 32. The weather is the coldest this season. Fears are entertained that to night's frost will be still more severe. Great dnmnge has been dune to truck farms.

TALLADEGA TORNADO. atom Leavea a Path of Deals-ac tion and Ruin In lla Wake, Talladega, Ala., March 1. The storm which passed over here yesterday made a path about 100 yards wide, and de struction marks its entire course. Fortu natrlv it did not uass through the thicklv populated part of the town, but the scene along its path beggars description Houses were blown down and boards. nnd even beams and rafters, carried for a considerable distance. Trees were snap ped off like mueatems, or torn from thi ground by the root. Cows, horses and other domestic animals were killed, ami a numlier of people liflng in the house blown down were seriously injured, but none fatally. The storni was in line with Cramer Woolis and the old bstel homrslend, both well known residences. A Heavy Mtorni In uoaton. Boston. Mass., March 3. A very heavy snow storm has prevailed in the greater portion of New England since yesterday. At noon to-noy tne uis patches indicate a practical cessation oi the storm at must points, clenring. colder weather following. The snow on level has been from twelve to eighteen inches. The high ways are said to be in a bad condition and the trains were somewhat delayed. For the first turn this winter the snow plows were neces sary. 10-day is town meeting nay in mnnv parts of the State, and it is ex iiected the meetings will be materially tnterferred with bv the snow storm. The snow fall in this city is given as eighteen inches.

Of course we invite everybody, without distinction, to our pretty house nf worship; but we should extend a special welcome nt all times to those friends who contributed so gracefully to it erection, and devoutly pray upon them the richest blessings of heaven. 1 wish also to make gratelul acknowledge ment of the fact that Cant.
