Madison iitixen* IMM-UHN Mean* for Kaiwinic Lukr OUII»"H Proportion of tlir Mtatr Fuinl— Ma«li*on liikely t* Be Chotirn Hradqurifn. A fairly well attended citizens' meet mg was held at the city hall this morn ing for the purpose of discussing ways and means for raising Lake county's ap portionment of the state world's fair fuud which amounts to 82,000. Our readers are aware of the fact that South Dakota has undertaken to raise a fund of $8o,000 for the purpose* of properly representing the resources of the state at the world's fair. The plan adopted by the state world's fair commission is for e ich county to contribute according to the wealth of the county. The plan meets with general favor, and so far the responses have been liberal. At this morning's meeting the following commit tee was appointed to call a delegate con vention, representing each township in the county, to be held at „the court house at a future day John Wadden J. A. Johnson, Dr. A. E. Clough, F. D, Fitts, J. J. Fitzgerald. The gentlemen present at the meeting expressod a wil lingness to assist in the enterprise, and were of the opinion that it would be greatly to the advantage of Lake county to be included in the state world's fair exhibit. An adjourned meeting oI the state world's fair commission will be held at Yankton on the 14th inst., fdr the pur pose, among other business to be tran hacted, of locating headquarters of the commission. Several of the towns of the state have put in applications to- be chosen headquarters, and in fact consid erable strife has been developed among them as to which town shall be chosen Madison is not making a pull for the distinction, but the indications are that she will be chosen as headquarters. Madison's friends outside are working to this end, and we are casually informed that on the final vote Madison will prob ably draw the prize. In any event Lake county will not be behind her sisters in the matter of doing her share toward supplying tne needed funds to send South Dakota to the world's fair in good shape. Teacher* Wanted.

Man's Oimtien, Hew Birth, Belief, •lid Record in Life, Was the Subject Matter Presented by Madison Divines Yesterday. PITTB'R BAPTIST CHURCH. "Man in God's Image" was the theme of the evening discourse, at the Baptist church, from Genesis 1:27, "So God created man in his own image, in the image of Cod created he him." The fascinating truth as to tl»e origin of our race, which antedates all KCCII l«r histbry, and which science has eagerly but in vain reached out after, is here stated in these brief words of revelation. Contrary to our youthful fancy, it is not the physical, but the spiritual man to which reference is here made. The phy sical man remains here but a few years, then dies and returns to his kindred ole mcnts. The spiritual man is the real man, and it is he who is created in God's image. Like God, man is a person, he is immortal and in his original state he was holy. It follows from this fact, First, that God designs better things for man than for ihe lower orders of creation, better things than what this earth alone can furnish. It is for him with the arm of science to reach out and encircle the stars, note their composi tion, their distance, their courses in space, the laws which govern them, in a word, to tell the wooderer what they are and with the other arm, the arm of faith mean's religious faculty to reach out be yond the stars, to embrace heaven with all its riches, its eternal joys. Second, It follows from the fact that man is created in God's image that lie is capable of better things than those at tainable by mere brute force. Like Al exander Selkirk on his lonely island, he is monarch of all he surveys. It is his to "subdue the earth, and have dominion over the fish cf the sea, and over the fowl of the air. and over every Jiving thing that moveth upon the face of the earth." He maketh the seaa to bear his burdens, the wind to grind his corn he haruesseth the lightnings and sendeth them upon his speedy errands. But more and better far than this, it is his to know the great Desiguor and Maker of the universe, and to enjoy his fellow ship. Third, it follows that man is worthy of better things than the beggarly ele ments of ihis world can produce. A man plans well for this life, and we look at him and nod the head with approval, There is a shrewd, far-seeing man." But bow far does he see? Simply to the horizon of his prosent life. In his origi nal state man was the possessor of the most beautiful garden that mortal eyes ever beheld, but what was far hotter he enjoyed the fellowship of God. God created hiui "but a little lower than* the angels" and of this fellowship he was worthy. And now in our unrighteous ness, wedded to the wealth of earth, God speaks to us and says, "Come up higher." The evening service was followed by an after meeting to which a large num ber remained and an excellent interest prevailed. PREBBrrEMAK CWUBOH. Topic of the mqrning sermon—**The New Birth"—text, John 3 3: "Except a man be born again, he cannot enter the kingdom of God." The whole passage is an account of a most instructive conversation held at night between the Divine Teacher, Jesus Christ, aud one high in authority among the Jews named Nicodemus. Jesus* mir acles had excited great and wide-spread interest among all classes of people. Many even among the Pharisees were in clined to believe Ho was the Messiah. To satisfy himself and others upon this point., this evening visit of Nicodemus was planned. But the Jews had an entire ly wrong conception of the kingdom their messiah was to establish in this world. In their view its appearing w is an external and political matter. But the Divine Teacher punctured this bub ble of Pharasaic conceit when He said to His visitor: "Except a man be born again he cannot see the kingdom of God." That is, the kingdom of God cometh not with observation or with outward pomp and power. It is a spiritual state into which no one enters without an inward transformation, a change of heart. We should consider: First, The neoessity of regeneration. "Ye must be born again," says Jesus. Satan's kingdom is a kingdom of dark ness Christ's kingdom, a kingdom of light. Satan is the father of lies and all wickedness. Christ's kingdom is one of purity and truth and ^jghteousness. Besides sin takes hold of the inner man. It has enslaved the will and corrupted the affections therefore the subject of the one kingdom needs a very radical chauge of heart before he can enter the other. Allegiance to satan must be re nounced. Loyalty to Got! must take its place. Second, The conditions of regenera tion. We are "to be born of water and of the Spirit." Water symbolizes bap tism, and baptism presupposes repent ance and confession of sin. Then comes the Holy Spirit into the heart implanting the germ of the new life: "not by works of righteousnes which we have done but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration and renew ing of the ilolv Ghost, "(Titus 3y 5). How, when and where does this Divine Spirit enter and make known his^ regftft- erating power? Aa mysteriously as the wind whose movement* are known main* Iy by their effects. God's spirit is It si lent yet most powerful agent, leavening by degrees the heart and life until the whole lnmp is leavenod.t Sometimes w itb the noise of a mighty wihd He comes as at Pentecost, bending tho wills and stir ring the hearts of men as trees bou be fore a tem]est. At other times gently, like a summer zephyr, He takes up His abode in the heart and refreshes and ren ovates the life. Tn conclusion: (1) Yon cannot change your own heart. God alone can do that. Ho is willing to exert his power to save the moment vou arc willing to be saved. (2) But sin must first be renounced. Works meet for repentance must be done. Read Luke i5 8-14 aud apply ho spirit of that teaching to yourself. CHUCK CHURCH. Friday of last week being the feast of tho Circumcision, the services at Grace church yesterday were appropri ate to the commemoration of that event in our Lord's life by which He, who had been "born of woman" was made "under the law" for man. The subject of the morning sermon was "Christ, the Clew to a Right Belief," John 10#, "I am tho Door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture." Christ is the Door through which men enter into every thing that is of Insting importance or real blessing to them. By Him if men enter in they are saved, but "without Me," said He, "ye can do nothing." U'e think of Him this morning as being the Door through which we may come in unto a right belief. This is different from studying Him as the Light of men Light reveals what was before under cover of darkness, but a door is that through which we pass into that from which we were before shut out It is a capital mistake to think that "i makes no difference what a man believer as loug as he is trying to do right." We should not consent to apply that maxim to any practical concern of this life— how, then, is it safe to apply it to the concerns of the eternal life? Correct information and a right belief as to the time and place of starting, price of rail road tickets, etc., are expected of us as reasoning beings, and necessary to suc cess,^ taking a tiip to Chicago. So in spiritual things our intentions, feeling?, etc., may be the very best and yet wo are prono to go astray into the most danger ouapaths unless wo use the other facili ties with which God has endowed'us for obtaining correct information and right belief as to the journey beavcu ward. This is simply common sense hut two things equally worthy of notice meet us here: first the strange indiffer ence of men to this fact, and second] the extreme care of Christ to imprei the importance of it upon us. When HP first came into Galilee "preaching the gospel of the Kingdom of God," His message was "repent ye and believe" this good news. Aright belief regard ing that Kingdom was, in His view, first, necessity. He founds it upon a profession of belief in' Himself as tho Son of God. Henceforth "believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and thou shalt be saved," is the requirement made of all Tho belief in Him as Son of God is the original of the Faith once for all deliv ered unto tho saints and the germ from which developed the only necessary creed for His church in that and every age. Tho Apostles Creed is the correct information, or simple statement of facts, regarding which a tight belief is reasonably demanded. As Christ is the germ from which the rest naturally springs, so He is the expounder of the other articles of the Christian behef. He is the Door through which alone we can come at a right belief with regard to them. In vain do men try to know and believe in God, except they onter in through belief in Jesus, as to a right un derstanding of Him. Some still persist in saying, "Show us the Father and it sufficeth us." They would set Christ Hside until they have settled it for them selves, by means of other holps, who, or what, God is. But they might as well try to enter this building through its stone walls. Christ says to them, "leave that unsettled for a moment and come around to me I am the Door to a right belief in God I and my Father are one. He that hath seen Me, bath seen the Father.. No man cometh unto the Father but by Me." Another sticks, per hai«, at the doctrine of eternal punish ment and thinks he must needs settle that question before he goes further. But we never heard that a belief in eternal punishment was the FIUKT'article of Christian belief. Let him enter by the Door. Let him first believe in Christ, His sufferings, sacrifice and death endured for man's salvation then only will he gain some true idea of the awfulness of sin, and all he needs to be lieve regarding inevitable and eternal exclusion from the blessings of God's presence, so long as he continues to defy God'e law. So too of the resurrection of the dead, and all the other' articles of the creed the only way we can hAve a right and saving belief id them is by coining at them through a right belief in Jesus as God manifest in the flesh Set all else aside and come toJesuu first. The evening sermon wee on Matt ll 2d. "Come unto me all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest." 1 Wednesday of this week being Epiph any dajrt t^e*e will be senriq^ «|lt«, a* with the Holy Communion. It is hojjod that the Rev P. J. D* Lorin, a unt iye missionary among the' Sioux at Standing Rock Agoncy, will preach at Grace church next Sunday. M. K. t'IM'Ml'Il. In connection with the roll call Rev. linger gave a talk on word** found in Isa. 4: Below appears a brief synopsis of this talk: Every adult, and intelligent life passes through the procoss of testing. The im portant question is not what are we be fore this testing but what are we during! Also, till and after we art* tried. It is a matter of no small moment that wo have ouri name in the right place. This is not only a timo wh»«n men make- their rec-: ords in congress and in state legisla turef, but on elect ion days, and on the i rolls fur or against Christ. Our names should be rightly associated with the frieuds of God. It means a great deal to have our names recorded in Zicn. They are there liiv.t of all to lend encourage ment to a righteous cause. Names as sist a cause to the full extent of their value. MHU'M influence, good or Lad, goes with his name. Membership in the church entities one to tho peculiar bless ings and advantages of this great organ ization select companionship and spocral favors from tho Throne. Membership in the church is protection against a thou sand temptations and uiHtiy dangerous foes places one under the enriobiiug in fluences of gusjtel caust him to breathe tho atmosphere of righteousness. Union with the church of Christ is one of the conditions of membership in the family of God it is placing tho name where Cod wants it written and is hat signing the contract which He would completo between man and Himself and until our names are recorded in some church rec ord or a willingness manifested to place it whore God would have it, tho condi tions of hitman salvation are not fully met. Let me speak a moment of this contract that injuria man's salvation. There is a divine side to it. On this side we have paternal care, supply of all things nffded, divine guidanco and an inheritance in glory. There is a human side to it. Loving God with all tho heart and our neighbors ns ourselves saying to the Infinite One, Thou t-hall have Thy way with nic subscribing it thus and meeting these conditions, man's salvation is -assured. Temporary membership in tho church of God is of little worth. Entering the church as an experiment counts for naught.. The church after 2,000 years of history has passed the experimental period. Life membership alono 'insures the exceeding great rewards promised to the faithful. Then comes a time when not to have our names where the world's Redeemer would have them means eter nal exclusion from his presence, Would we hnvo our names recorded in the Lambs Book cf Life we must see to it that they avo properly placed in this life. Week of prayer will be observed every evening cf this week, except Saturday, by the Baptist people in their owu church, by the German Baptists in their place of worship, and by Methodists and Presbyterians in union service in the M. E. church. Everybody is made welcome to these services and it is a good placj for all good, and bad peaple toot to go to. Tho Christian Alliance topics will likely be ucsod in these meetings as follows: Sunday Tho unity of the spirit in the bond of peace. Monday--Confession and thanksgiv ing. Tuesday—The church universal Wednesday—'The family and the young- Thursday—Nations and their rulers. Friday The church abroad. Saturday- -The church at home.
