A SERMON PREACHED IN THE CONGREGA TIONAL CHURCH, "WATERTO WN, CONN., BY THE PASTOR, REV ROBERT PE GRUM. Prov. 22 : 6, "Train up a child in the way he should go; and when he is old, he will not depart from it." The present age is pre-eminently one of education. But we must remember tbat perfect education includes the train ing not only of the mind, but also of the heart and of the soul. That man is not thoroughly educated who lives immor ally, or who has disregarded the claims of religion. Philosophy and science may have received bis attention, and he may have stored his mind with the learn ing of Greece and of Borne ; but even then he may still be uneducated in the higher sense of the word, for religion may have been passed by unnoticed. To cultivate only the mind, is to cultivate only half the man. To neglect religion and the moral improvement of the heart, is to neglect a work tjie noblest and best, one which brings us into nearer union with the great essence of perfection, and assim ilates us to the likeness of that Being who gits enthroned upon the riches of the universe, and is at the head of all in telligences which sre in heaven or on the earth. Man has been called a relig ious being. , la all countries, be has been found regarding some religious rites, and bowing the knee, either to the true God or to some supposed divinity.; He cannot rid himself of the belief that there Is a Spirit who presides over his destiny, who takes cognizance of all bis acts, and who will ultimately reward the righteous and punish the nnright eous. . It Is, then, the highest consist ency in man, the most rational work, to make provision for his spiritual cutiva tion ; for the most important part of a man's education is religious instruction. Solomon, who was noted for his Di vinely-given wisdom, says, "Train up a child in the way be should go ; and when he is old, be will not depart from H." Or, more literally, the first clause of this passage reads, "Initiate, or In struct, a child at the entrance, or begin ning, of bis way." Early instruction will usually lead to good results. Solo mon's idea was that a child Bhould be instructed as early as possible, in order that be might retain the impression and carry it into practice throughout his life. Early instruction is necessary. LOOK AT THE STURDY OAK, whose roots are firmly secured in the ground, whose trunk ba been gradually expanding for a century and wbose top most branches are far removed from earth. Can you bend the solid wood of that tree. Can you train it to the form which would suit your idea of beauty and would afford pleasure to your sight; No, it is now too late. This training ought to bave been performed while the tree was young and flexible. There was & time when it was a sapling ; and then It would have yielded to pressure with out breaking. Then it was so pliant, tbat it might bave been trained to the most fantastic forms without injury. But now its mode of growth must -remain unaltered. You can destroy its branches, divide its spacious trunk and uproot the cords which bind it to the earth, you can kill the noble tree, but the training of it is now far beyond your power. Apply this to the training of a child, and you will tee the necessity of early instruction. You can mould? the young pliant heart and mind and fashion it almost at will. But if the untrained mind be allowed to bave tree intercourse with the world, and to imbibe its spirit and to drink In its follies ; then (raining will be impossible and instruction will be useless. Instruction in the truths of God should be given, before dime novels and other kinds of dangerous literature WATERTO WN F ROM THE J bave poisoned the youthful mind, and before the young heart has fixed its af fection on the world's glittering but de lusive toys. In early life, , instruction generally proves effectual; for, when only taught at the beginning of their way, many of the rising race have been led to claim the Divine promise, "Those that seek me early shall find me.." What we desire our children to be at 40, we should train them to be at 10. If they are led to acquire the habit of giv ing largely, and are taught to look upon giving as a happy privilege, and not at a disagreeable tax, they will in all prob ability, as they grow up, find increasing pleasure and satisfaction in giving free ly to every good cause. We may be poor, but our children may live to be rich, and have much to give. Let us see to it that by our precept and example tbey are educated to honor God with their substance. Thomas A. Becket's mother did all she could to raise her son to be a pious and charitable man Every birthday she seated him in the kitchen scales and placed against him in the balance his weight of food and cloth ing to be given to the poor. The heav' ier he became, the more were the gifts he was to distribute to the needy around him. This mode of training him to be charitable impressed his heart and in fluenced bis life. The apostle Paul wrote to the Christian church at Ephe 3us, "Provoke not your children to K wrath ; but bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord." IT IS THE DCXI AND PRIVILEGE of Christian parents to bring up their children in the nurture and admonition of the Lord, to initiate or instruct them at the beginning of their way, to teach them the principles of religion, to speak a word for Jesus before the world has corrupted their youthful minds. But many parents are not Christians, and therefore they cannot be expected to train their offspring in the fear of God. As they find no charm or music in the name of Jesus, they will not teach tbeiri children's lips to lisp his praise. The Sunday school, however, comes to the ren from the evil influences of the world and from the evil examples of ungodly men. The Sunday school is the nursery of the church. The children are as trees planted by the waterside, and we are the gardeners who bave the culture of them, and according to the buds we graft upon them now, buds of truth, of virture, of weakness and godliness, so will be the fruits they will yield hereafter. Chil dren are the clay, and we are the potters; and as we mould them now, bo will they take, their fu ture :.Cje' ' e are -the engravers, they arTrthe tablets ; and may we be en abled to write upon them as with the finger of God, in order tbat the inscrip tion may prove to be enduring. The smallest influence will turn a child this way or that ; even as in the natural world the smallest stone npon a moun tain top may influence the course of a rill of water, and determine whether it shall flow down as a river to the east or west. So will the slightest influence brought to bear upon the lives and ac tions of childhood, give a bias to their whole life, a color to Us future issue, which will in no small degree prepare them for destruction and ruin or. for glory and immortality. The object of the Sunday school is to instruct both old and young in Christian truth, and through tbat truth to lead souls into .the living and loving fellowship with Jesus Christ, Solomon says, "A wise man is strong, yea, a man of knowledge increase th strength.":. And a more modern ; writer expresses Jhe same idea in the well known words, "Knowledgeis power The young claim this knowledge,! which is power, of the Christian church, tbey claim this instruction at the beginnirg of their way. Knowledge is power physically. On tne great railroads, we can see moun tains . leveled, rocks cleft and V rivers passed, while nature, in countless varie gated forms, lies cultivated before us. And by the same power, we can stand 'in the lighthouse, amid the blue expanse, bidding defiance to the towering waves. Knowledge is power also mechanically. The natural state of water is rest, but here we find water in motion. What puts it in motion? Knowledge. Thus even water serves to inform us as to the time of day ; what the temperature is; what the weather will be ; and where we are, though on the broad ocean with nothing to look upon but sky and water. KNOWLEDGE manufactures our clothing, makes our paper, gets our coal, ploughs our ground and carries us thousands of miles dis tant on sea and land. Knowledge ex hibits to our view our own ekln of scale, and the fibres of an Insects wing and the rolling worlds in illimitable space. Knowledge is power also intellectually.,) It conceives thoughts that .breathe in words tbat burn. It makes discoveries, it executes designs, it solves problems, it conquers difficulties and It accumulates vast information. Knowledge is the philosopher's stone which turns every thing it touches into gold. It is the sceptre, which gives dominion over na ture. Intellectual knowledge is the ke? TAFT SCHOOL ANNUAL. FOSTOFFICB AND STORE OF MR ATWOOD. which unlocks the storehouse of creation and which opens to us the treasures of the universe. Although Intellectual knowledge is of such, vast' importance yet, in some places, it is, as the poet sings, "The young are left to droop, By timely culture nniustalned, Or run into a wild disorder. Or be forced to drudge through a weary life, Without the help ot Intellectual implements : or tools. A savage horde among the civilized, A servile band among the lordly tree." But rising still higher than even in tellectual knowledge, we observe that knowledge is power morally' and spirit ually. This is the power, this is the knowledge, which the '. young claim of the Christian church. It is not the busi ness of the Sunday school teacher to give secular instruction; but to impart spiritual knowledge. It is necessary to diffuse knowledge, all useful knowledge for this is true wisdom, the right appli cation of knowledge. "This Is life eter nal, that they might know Thee, the only true God and Jesns, whom tbou has sent." "The gospel is the power of God unto salvation, to every one that believeth." Therefore, in this highee sense, knowledge is power. Sunday school teachers should impart that knowledge which is adapted to qualify those who are under their care for the service of God in the present age, and to prepare them for the more perfect ser vice of the age to come. Instruction of the highest and noblest kind is required, The Bible is a library of divine books the grandest literature in the world, and, with this at band, the Sunday school teacher should not be at a loss for either subject or illustration. It overflows with the choicest imagery. It contains the most touching narratives, the most lively histories, the most ; im pressive examples, and the most won derful events, events so simple as to at tract the admiration of a child, and majestic as to command the applause of an angel. From this vast storehouse the teacher, may gather materials for the Instruction of the youthful mind and heart. In this sacred library is describ- e the. creation of man, 'the noblest work of God," "fearfully and wonder fully made ;" and you may talk of pby siology. In it, we read of "the heaven' THE WORK OF GOD'S fingers, the moon and the stars which he hath ordained and you may talk of as-, tronomy. In it ' are ' mentioned ' "the foundations" and "the dens and caves of the earth," and you may talk of geol ogy. In it, reference is made to "a vein for the silver, and a place for the gold where they find it, iron taken out of the earth, and brass molten out of the stone ;" and you may talk of mineralogy. In it, are "the green pastures beside tbe still waters,' "the flocks," and "the lit tle hills on every side ;" and you may talk of agriculture. In it are tbe "flow ers which again appear on the earth," in countless variety and beauty ; and you may talk " of botany. , In it are "the beasts of the forest' and whatever creep- eth forth, with every living thing;" and you may talk or zoology. In it are "the temple" and "the building;" and you may talk of architecture. In it are the two testaments, the laws of God and men, and you may talk of juris prudence. In it are "the armies of Isa, rael" and "the soldiers of the cross ;' and you may talk of military tactics. You will find these and many other things tar the Scriptures ; but be careful always to give,' instruction that is Cbris tocentric. Let Christ be the center of your teaching 'and let all things be grouped around him.: Therefore, if you speak of astronomy, it should be of "the sun of righteousness,", "the bright and morning star,',' "the light of tbe world and "tbe light of life." - If you speak of geology, it should be of "the ancient of days," before all worlds, "the rock of eternal ages.'"- if you speak of miner alogy, it should be of "the gold tried in the fire," or of the "unsearchable riches." If you speak, of botany, it should be of "the rose of Sharon and lily of the val ley.", If you speak of zoology, it should be of the "lion of the tribe of Judah," the "lamb of God who taketh away tbe sin of the world." If you speak of juris prudence, it should be of the "Lord our righteousness," who is the "end of the law for righteousness" to every one who believeth. And if you speak of military tactics, it should be of the "captain of our salvation,", who is tbe Christian's panoply, Jbeneath the banner of whose cross we "fight the good fight of faith," and through whom we are enabled to exclaim, "Thanks be to God, who givetb us the victory, through our Lord Jesus Christ." As it is the special work of the bunday school teacher to impart spiritual instruction, yon mast be Chris tocentrio teachers If you would be suc cessful. - Let the Bible, which is fall of "Christ, be your text-book. Secular instruction gives a child tbe means of fighting with ' but one only of his three great enemies, the world, tbe ' flesh and tbe devil ; and It leaves him exposed on every side, and powerless where safety is necessary. Mow you may sjlve him knowledge, and you may teach him morality and justice. MEN'S ' FALL SUITS. For Men and Young Men. Here's eveiythlrg In Nobby Sack Suits which have the call this fall.

Each, in its way, will belp him to tread the labyrinths ol this world ; but, with out the Bible, there is not a word, a thought or hope to lead him to the glor ies of the next. Without the Sacred Scriptures the child has simply a chart by which he may navigate the little sea of time, with every propped of founder ing on the great ocean of eternity. Hence we should make Everything subservient to the BIBLE. Biblical teaching in the Sunday school Is of inestimable value. It is a precious stone, cut and polished, which will flash with immortal intelligence, and through Divine Grace and the Holy Spirit's pow er, it will beam as a diamond, studding Immanuel's crown forever. The beneficial results of early religious instruction are suggested by our text, "When he is old he will not depart from it." Here is encouragement for Sunday school teachers. Children, as well as adults, are usually led to Christ by a ser ies of impressions rather than by a single impression; and we know not what share we, as individual workers, have in pre paring the matured fruit. Time will not kill the impressions which are made. The seeds of early religious teaching which are sown in the Sunday school may re main dormant for awhile ; but they will ultimately germinate and bear fruit. Sometimes the effects of Sunday school work extend even beyond the children themselves to those with whom the chil dren come in contact. As an example of this fact, we mention the following sim ple story. A Sunday.echolar, of tender age, was at home one evening with her father and with a sister one year older than herself. The father, who was an ungodly and immeral man. was appar ently asleep in his chair. The younger child said to her sister, "Let us pray for father," and, kneeling beside his chair, she said, in gentle tones "O Lord Jesu?, do have mercy on Cut. poor father, and change his wicked heart." That prayer was answered. ' The father, instead of being asleep, was awake and bad beard the melting words from his Infant dangh. ter'alips. From that time be attended the house of God and was soon led to accept and confess Jesus as his Savior a d Lord. y 1 When apparent failure follows their la bor, let teachers take courage. Their work will not be in vain ; for there will be a harvest as well as a seed time. "Tbey that sow in tears shall reap in joy. He that goeth forth and weepeth, bear ing precious seed, shall doabtless come again With rejotcing,bringing his sheaves '( Wicn nim." ivn via .rescamens uioe BRIDGEPORT. CONN. story furnishes us with two apt illustra. tions of this theme. On the one hand we have the neglect on the part of Eli to train his sons, Hopbni and Pbinebas, and we observe tne sad results. Kirs sons .were grown up before we read of his re monstrating with them ; and then, as the reproof was given too late, it was una vailing. Concerning their conduct, was written,"They were sons of Belial.' concerning tnetr religions estate, it was said, "They knew not the Lord." And concerning their father Eii, Jehovah ;dc clared, '! will fudge his house forever, for the Iniquity which he knowetb ; be cause his sons made themselves vile and he restrained them not." ELI HAD FAILED TO INSTRUCT his children in early life; and therefore he had neither pleasure in their lives nor hope in their death. On tbe other hand we have the example of Samuel. Like many of the noblest men, he had the un gpeakable advantage of a godly mother. who consecrated him to God from his birth, saying, "As long as he livetb he shall be lent to the Lord," and be passed from his mother's side to the sacrecLchamber of the tabernable, as his future home. "And the child Samuel grew on, and was in favor both with tbe Lord and also with men." In later life his character remained unchanged ; for being a man of purity, of prayer and of prophecy, he was recognized by Israel "from Dan to Beersheba," as "a prophet of Jehovah." And, after such a life of faithfulness and usefulness, it is no won der that all Israel gathered together and lamented him, when bis body was laid in the burial ground of his.native village. Let u, then, regard Samuel as a b I -liant example of the truth of Solomon's words, "Train up a child In the way be should go; and when he is old, he will not depart from it." Thousands of our Christian churches are not receiving enough members from adults to make up for their deaths and removals. Their only hope isto get the children into the Sunday school and from the school into the church. The Sunday school and the Y. P. S. C. E. are the grandest Instrumentalities that the church has, in the present day, for its prosperity and growth. And ev en as to the secular effects, it has been observed that Sunday school teachers are doing more for the elevation of man, and for the cause of good governmept than all the politicians and political par ties combined. These are some of the results of Sun day school teaching. It Is a work in which Jesns himself is Interested.
