Mission or The Secret of a Happy Marriage His text embraced the greater portion of the first and second chap ters of the book ot Genesis The miniwter davoted a largo part of the first half of his scirmon to proving the intellectual superi ority of man over woman and of womans greater capabilities for love and affection He spoke of the felicity ft happy mariitiges and of the misery resulting from mismating couples Should Fray for Guidance Mr Frost spoke at some length on subject of frequent and devout prayer to the Lord that He would gnide them each to suitable husband and wife Those contem plating marriage should consider well tho desirability of a similar age rank tastes disposition and aims in life It is especicallly important that they hold the same religious views UutlM of the Sexes Here the speaker touched the employments proper for man and woman He said In the marriage relation there are duties prop er to the husband and other duties proper to the wife and the wife cannot ussumo the du ties of the husband nor the husband those of the wife so as to perform them aright This Is taught by these words The woman sbal not wear that which pertaineth unto the man nsither a man put on a womans garments for all that do so are abomination unto the Lord thy God1 Woman In tHe Factories It is a wrong tendency in human life which urges women to show that they ian do whatever a man can do and do it as well or that they are the intellectual equals of man Tlie women in tho stores factories offices and other places of business in life ore forcing thousands of men out of employ ment doing their work at great cost of health strength and sometimes of womanly refinement and modesty for half what the men can and ought to recejve for doing it and work which the men xmght

lectures on the sabject Are the Gospel Historiei Credible A large and highly appreciative audience listened to Dr Barrows clear enun ciation of his belief If the gospel history is true if Christ came into the world to res cue men ami at last vindicated his divinity by rising from the dead began Dr Bar rows then historic Christiany is true and ought to bo accepted A General Review of the Subject The lecture was more of a general intro duction than a production of facts The speak er said that more than eighteen centuries agothe shrewd Jewish counsellor Gamalie 1 hac said of Christianity If this work be oi men it will be overthrown but if It be oi God ye will not be able to overthrow it Never before has the gospel history so widely accepted It is difficult to ex plain the noonday without granting thai there has been a sunrise This gospel his tory was preached as true at the very dawn of Christianity and on its truth have been built up institutions which have come down to onr times We write today 1890 thereby recording the fact that 1890 years have passed since the coming of Christ among men Not the Product of Imagination The presumption in favor of the truth 01 the gospel history is the fact that it centers in the life of such a matchless being as Christ It is impossible to consider him a JBie product of the imagination of the rudi fishermen of Galilee They were not com potent to frame such a character All the great men of history hud accepted Christ as some being more than human he is too mighty to havo boon product of fancy and too great to be only a legend or a dream Dr Barrows quoted as an incontrovertible argument the fact that in the nineteenth century the most intelligent and Christianity had gained 210000000 adherents a littlo more than in all the other combined

wero radical in their views and partic ularly severe on tho Sunday newspaper but Rev W S Shannon of the Christian church was more liberal He said There are Sunday laws and there is Sunday law lestoess We think the laws are rigut and lawlessness wrong People who are not Christians are no more bound to the Chris tians day of worship than they are to his communion table It is our duty first to Christianize the people and then the Sunday question will settle itself Seven days hi the week fiftytwo weeks in the year makes tha man nt the throttle or the composing stick e slave The preacher finds thousands of men who plainly tell him that they have no time to go to Heaven Until Christian people can forego their prejudices they have poor grounds for grumbling at Sunday papers and railroad corporations When the peo ple who ride permit the people who drive to pray with them we will have a Christian Sunday Believe in OldFashioned Hades CHICAGO Jan Rev Mr Probst at the Westminster

that governed water your draggled and bloated corpse floated down with the current Violate Gods laws and you must suffer What Jesus Christ said was a warning It was awfully shocking to our nerves Sin was opposed to Gods laws ane would be punished The speaker be lieved that Christ meant everything he said and that the real meaning was worae than the figure He believed the punishment would be far more excruciating than was in dicated by the figure used It was the soul that suffered not the body Ifeeroes Employed at Punxsutawney PtTNXs tTTAWSEY Pa Jan 20 About sixty negroes were brought here
