The services at Saint Paul a methodist episcopal Church sunday were largely att need. It was the Rev. Or. Dim micks last sunday As pastor of the congregation. In the morning a class of probationers was admitted to full membership and the rite of baptism was administered. I n the evening or. Dim Mick preached his Farewell Sermon. At this service every available seat in the Large auditorium was in demand. Many friends of the popular divine were there. Or. Dimmick a subject was a a completed Mission a using As a text the fourth verse in the 17th, chapter of Saint John a i have glorified thee on the Earth i have finished the work thou Hast Given me to following is a synopsis of the eloquent discourse. One of the most pleasing indulgences for the human mind to enjoy is the habit of looking Forward. One loves to think of the Bright tomorrow. We paint glorious futures we build air castles. But a profitable thing is to look Back Over the past particularly if that past is filled with True living. Jesus As he came to the close of his career was Able to look up into the face of his father in heaven and say. �?o1 have glorified thee on the Earth i have finished the work thou gravest me to every Man should strive to be Able to close life with the truth of this declaration expressing our real state in the sight of god. What Are some of the things expressed in the text that we do Well to Ponder. First he had glorified his father. He made every thing to Bend to the accomplishment of this end to a to the will of him who sent him. In our catechism we Learned when children that the highest duty of Man was to glorify god. Lesus said that the highest glory of the father was in the fruitfulness of the lives of his children. It is a marvellously strange fact that a poor sinful weak mortal can shed glory and Lustre upon the heart of god. Second we learn that he Learned the Art of finishing what he undertook. How Many incomplete schemes and plans of men there Are in the world. How Many incomplete characters and lives. There is a Grace in being Able to finish what we have begun. It is better to do one thing completely than Many things. How Many begin Well but fail to end Well. It is the end the finishing that determines the value of a thing done or of a life lived. Third Jesus teaches us to live a thorough life to thorough a plan or purpose. How much waste in the world for the Lack of thoroughness. Every age is crowded with waste baskets that contained the fragments of half done actions and thoughts. How Many inventions have never been of any use because the inventor did not do the work thoroughly. How Many scientific theories have died prematurely because the discoverer did not thoroughly understand tie great truth he presented. The Church has been greatly damaged by the Lack of thoroughness in the thought of its ministers. In every department of life in our Day thoroughness is demanded. This is True particularly in the religious world. Thorough christians Are in demand. Fourth he teaches the individuality of life. To every Man his work. Every Man has a place and a Mission from god. Every life is a god planned life and it is our highest duty As Well As a most sacred privilege to know what is gods purpose in us and to carry it out. Every life differs from every other life. Fifth a god planned life is a god inspired life. We believe in god inspired words that the Bible god inspired. Be us teaches a divinely inspired life. Sixth a divinely inspired life must be a perpetual divine revelation. That is what Christ a life was. He a lid not give himself to works of organization or Reform but let the Light and life that were in hand Shine Forth and reveal the hide Len truth of his soul. In conclusion or. Dimmick said let me in leaving you urge you to study and practice life from the stand Point that Jesus occupied. Remember your life should be planned of god. Inspired by his spirit. That you should strive to be thorough in every Good word and work and Endeavor to perfect the life you have begun. An honest conservative associate judge is what we want.

One of the most daring attempts at robbery Ever made in this Section occurred at Cambria about five Miles from Benton shortly after Midnight tues Day. Owing to the wonder Tui display of courage shown by a Young Man by the name of John Hughes of that place a repetition of the Renton robbery of monday would have occurred. As it was the robbers were fright eyed away and one of their number killed. According to facts secured by the americas last evening the Story of the attempted robbery and its ending is not Only sensational but interesting. Owing to the numerous thefts that have occurred in that neighbourhood during the past few Days or. Hazlet who is proprietor of the general store in that place asked Young Hughes to watch his place tuesday night. After sitting up for some time Hughes decided to take a rest behind the counter. He had taken his position when he heard the foot Steps of some one in the store. While he was listening a Man reached around the end of the counter and flashed a dark lantern in his face at the same time shoving the muzzle of a revolver under his nose and asking him what he was doing there. Hughes nerve remained with him and he informed the marauder that he was there to watch the store. While he was explaining his presence Hughes reached for his win Chester which was at his Side and taking desperate chances he brought it to Liis shoulder and tired Point Blank four times at the Man in front of him. The Man uttered a yell and started for the door hut he had Only proceeded about one Hundred Yards when he fell to the ground dead. Hughes gave the alarm and in company with some neighbors went to the Side of the fallen Man. Examination developed the fact that one Bullet bad entered the left Arm and pierced the heart coming out through the Back of the Man.

On his feet were shoes of the latest style. He wore a neat Black moustache and on his clothes were found a Gold watch and a revolver the property of Smith Mather amp co., of Benton the place that had been robbed monday night. Or. Bryan Hopes to catch some votes by passing As an enthusiastic american. Yet this Man who makes such eloquent appeals to National spirit and patriotism has been a lifelong advocate of the a Juicy of giving work to foreigners rather than american workmen.

He would admit to this country free of duty the Wool of Australia and of South America to ruin the Wool growers of the West. He would allow free entry to the tin plate of Wales and to the wines and Silks of France. He would throw open our Market to the manufacturers of England and would make this country As George Iii Aud his advisers tried to make it before the Days of �?T76, industrially dependent on the Mother country. Of his Devotion to the jux Ulicy of free Trade however there is no doubt Aud there is no doubt either but that his election to the presidency would mean the closing up of american Mills and in consequence More business for the Mills of England Aud of other countries.
