Baccalaureate Sermons to Augus
tan a and High School
Points Out the Path That Brings
Success andllappiness
Commencement. This li commencement week at
Augustana College and Theological
seminary. It is the 4 1st commence
ment of that institution, which this
year is sending out the largest classes
in its history. The lycenm entertain
ment Saturday evening marked the
beginning of a busy week for the fac
ulty and students. Last night the
baccalaureate sermon to the classes
of the collegiate, theological and nor
mal departments, who are to ba grad
uated this week, was preached al the
college chapel by Prof. C. J. Soder
gren, of the faculty. It was a mas
terful discourse and was listened to
attentively throughout its delivery
by the large audience. The speaker
chore for his text IIeb:12:l. To do
without God," said Mr. Soder
gren, "is the crime of the ceutur
res, and man is the criminal. Our
rebellious 'no' to God's fatherly and
benevolent 'yes1 has the blasphemy of
a free will, creating sin and plunging
us into that death which is separation
from the living God, and its unutter
able iuin, darkness and woe.
But God, the unsullied God. kindled a
light in the darknes3. Its. beams
glimmered amid a chosen race as a
lamp shin'mg in a dark place until
the day dawn.1 In the fulness of the
times a day pprung from on h gh
hath visited us to shine upon them
that 6it in darkness and the shadow
of death to guide our feet into the
way cf peace.' "
A Race for Life.
'A Race for Life' shall be the
theme Dt our sermon tonight." con
tinued Mr. Sodergren, "suggested by
the passage chosen as text for this
occasion, and this we propose to treat
under the following divisions: First,
the exhortation; second, the condi
tions; third, the incentive, and fourth,
the goal of the race. The exhortatlou
comes from God. lie wishes to gain
oar love, and love will not be coerced.
Nothing can become the eternal pos
session cf a soul except by conscious
and voluntary choice. Another coa
lition cf success is endurance. We
are not sprinting. A short-winded
sprint is not enough. We are engaged
in a century run. Impediments of
all kinds will re encountered. Hell
nizh impossible barriers will be
thrown across your paths.
Instead cf life becoming impov
erished and barren it is being tilted
with the riches of eternity. Gd
never takes anything away without
giving something inhnitely better in
its stead. The cider leaves of winter
only give place to the new leaves of
spring, and the sunset in our conti
nent is the sunrise in another.
We have a strong incentive to per
severance and endurance in 'being
compassed about with so great a
cloud of witnesses.' -
f UtttiQ th Jol.
"The goal is heaven, not as a dis
tant place, but as a high condition
and state of mind, soul and body.
Onr race is not locomotion, but
sanc'ification. To be Christ-like is
heaven, and when conformed to His
image we shall be where He is. Pur
ity of heart, perfected love and ex
alted wisdom, these are the joys of
heaven, and not the streets of gold
or the jasper sea. though the sur
rounding will correspond to our state
of heart. The reward is not for what
we have done or become, but for
what Christ has become and done f jr
us and in us. Bath are the vicarious
work of Christ. The merit and glory
are Hie, and still 'He holdeth our
crown in His bands.1"
Pi of. Sodergren in turn addressed
each claes personally, congratulating
them upon the completion or their
college work and giving them some
wholesome aavice as 10 ineir iuiure.

Rev. W. S. Marquis, of the Broad

the baccalaureate sermon before the
eraduating class of the high school
last evening. He took for bis text !
Saul's words. "Lord, what wilt thou
have me do?" and upon it preached
He said: "Saul of Tarus facid a
new feature when he asked that ques
tion. It was a momentous hour for
him and for the world. It is ever a
momentous hour when a human soul
determines what it will do. Deeds
are the fruit cf education, of nature,
of all the influences and purposes of j
the soul; therefore they will reveal
and Ox the character' and destiny.)

The Important Question.
"The important question for you at
this juncture is 'ijoru, wnat win rnou
