At the service morning nearly the full .seating cil- .ueity wus occupied. The great missionary limiicinT, Chaplain McCiibc preached fivm !tutb -'Anil when sho was risen up to glean, commanded his young mcu, saving, lei her glean even among tbe sheaves ind rcpi'oneh her not; and let fall also some tbe liaudfulls on purpose for her, and leave .hi-m, that slu: may glcuu them, and rebuke icrnot." Tbe discourse, was strong and lany filled. Tbe provisions of the "Mosaic ;iw extending to tin: poor the right to glean u the (if tbe rich were received as hav- in them nn appropriate lesson fur modern jhilanthropy. The chaplain tben led nto a consideration of the natural elTect of the Christian religion when brought to bear ipiin tin- relations of labor and capital. Christianity is the great economic factor that establish u satisfactory relation be- :wecn tbe employer and the employed. Tbe rivat disldcratiiin which must tinally supple- ni-nt tbe labor of al! statesman and public- sis upon the at the rich and the poor s the Christian sentiment of "love thy neigh- lor us ruling alike in the heart of :he millionaire and tbe pauper. He is i great mini, who. as owner of a street rall- i-av can stam! al ibe crnl of bis line and Im- ii! lilm-i-lf driving a car twelve hours fur He. isp-eat who can put himself in he place of the wage worker under him. The religion of Cbrlst opens the way to such _'reatm-.is. y.uch of the same, was, of course, u the dlreetiun of liliunil for tile Cbris- iun cause, Iu this It was rich Iu illustration anecdote. A collection of about 100 was raiscil at this service aud closing. Chaplain McCain- yielded to the pressure of the audience to bear him and, seated at the organ, he lirlil the coiiUTegatlun for ten or lifteeu minutes in wrap! admiration of his- mellow, tender tones. At m. 11 union Sunday school ser- vice was held HIM! addressed by Dr. Emory Miller, iif Inilianula. formerly uf the upper luwii conference, am! Chiiplulu at which the latter sung by request. "Papa, what vim take fur A large col- lection M-IIS cnntrihuU-i by members and classes uf tbe Sunday Dr. Miller, perhaps tin-must logical preacher In Iowa, gave tin-evening sermon. The Doctor's tlieme was, is bused upon tirst Corinthians, third 21st, 22d and 23d icr-.es. The enquiry of the age is What is the inclining uf the creation of tbe human race and what relation do we. sustain to tbat mean- ing. Without revelation the human mind Is unable to settle the question of Its own ex- istence. All philosophical speculation as to the nature of God is but the wildest vagaries without the Bible. What book crives the clue tu the riddle of human life: Divine love gives a meaning to cxi: tenet-. God DBS In- in H universe, the object being to de- velop the resources of His love. All persons exist to lie sharers in the ownership of that universe. To realize upon this Investment lie sent His son into the world to save sin- ners by developing the, sentiment of divine love in the human breast. The little of own- ership by which Christ is God's consists In the Savior's dissemination of love among men. His disciples were commissioned to a like work to verify the further statement of the text that "Ye are Christ's." The real work of tbe church is therefore tbe cultivation and establishment of love. A soul-saving church and preacher and layman is Christ's by She same tenure that Christ is God's. Also all tilings arc yours by the same not for liny selfish purpose, but for a consci- entious anil benevolent use. The real owner ship of a thing eomes In using it us In some way fc manifestation of love. The discourse Is marred by any attempt at outlining it. It abounded In "argumentive illustration and was a rich treat to Dr. Miller's old hearers.

He was pardoned by the president Dee. 20, but the paper did not reach tbe Columbus penitenti- ary until Friday evening, Jan. 4.

He never fnlly rallied and died this morning, surrouuded by the members of his family.
