John Sherman indulged in extended remarks called Forth by the sad Ami unfortunate circumstances. His discourse was an Able one thoroughly apropos in All its allusions and it made a deep impression of the Large assemblage. The discourse was founded on first Samuel. 20th chapter 3rd verse a a there is but a step Between me and death. A following is a synopsis of the Sermon in All vocations we Are exposed to danger and death. In some callings it is True we Are exposed to More danger than in others. The Soldier for instance is More Likely to be killed than the Man engaged in peaceful pursuits Ami the railroader is More Likely to fall a victim to Accident than men following other vocations. In All cases however it is Only the body that is killed the soul lives on. When the body i destroyed the soul goes to meet its judge Ami to receive Coudes nation or Reward. Preparation for Reward must be made in this life there being Only one Way to Gaiu Reward namely. By reconciliation with god through Jesus Christ. There Are Many agencies tending to destroy the soul and probably the most potent is Strong drink. James a. Jones had his weakness his sins were Manifest. There Are Inaus worse sinners however whose sins Are covered. Let us turn from Jones who has passed hence the speaker said Aud look upon the Man who did the shooting the poor wreck languish aug in prison nerve racked a according to report j from his continued a or inking so that whether it was accidental or deliberate he could not help but take the life of his Friend. The speaker made a impassioned Appeal to men with this terrible warning before them so fraught with sorrow and so far reaching and grave in its consequences to pause Aud consider before indulging further their appetite for Strong a Friuk. He reminded those who drink that they also Are taking human life. A first of All a Rev. Sherman said a you Are taking your own life because you Are not men when you drink. You Are taking the life of your wife Wixom you swore to love Aud protect by killing the spirit and depriving her of love and the necessities of life. You Are taking the lives of your children by withholding from them that which you ought to give them. You Are taking the life of the Community because you do not sustain it in its Best in conclusion the sex Aker ventured the assertion begging Pardon if the remark seemed harsh that if anything that lie could say on that occasion would Lead men to be sober that if they would heed this terrible warning. Then probably poor Jones death won id not be too great a sacrifice. He begged of them All a when tempted to drink to remember poor Jim the following persons from out of town attended the funeral or.
