Ttiat Is What Rev. Mr. Klnkr, of Providence,
A VERY THOUGHTFUL SERMON
Delivered in the Providence Christian
Church Yesterday Morning He
Says the Soul Requires Instruc
tionNature Has Offered No Rem
edy for Sinners Those Who Refuse
or Neglect All the Means of Instruc
tion. Rev. D. M. Kinter preached un ex
cellent sermon at the Providence Chris
tjau church yesterday morning upon
"Importance of Soul Instruction," and
bused bis romurki upon Prov., xv, 31.
lie begun his discourse by remarking
Hint man bad been so constructed by
tbe Creator as both to require and dt
sire instruction. Ail uihu come into
the world iguorant of our origlu, our
pteseut existence and our dbstiny. We
know rot our rijjht band from our left
and our intollect from necessity must
be an absolute blank. Continuing, be
The mind must bo informed of all things
pertainiug to lit' aud to godliness, time
and eternity. The bunds must bo prac
ticed to luuor and the mind must also bj
trained to reasou.
The text refers to throe tilings. First,
instruction for the soul. It is iu a 6tato of
spiritual durkuess. but it must be borne in
uiitnl that this is not accidental that we
came into the world iguoruut b it uatu.
ml and not partially 'to, but universally
applicable to the whole human race.
"Darkness covered the whole earth uud
gross darkness the people." All therefore
need instruction; but some are quicker of
appreheusiou to receive aud quicker iu
perception iu observing than otbera, but
(jo.l bus provided instruction.
l'iivt By IUs works of creation and
pruvideuce "the heavens declare tne glory
of God. and the firmament shosveth His
handiwork.'' "For tho invisible things of
Him from tbecreatiou of t.ie world are
clearly seeu, being understood by the
things that are made eveu Ilis eternal
power aud Godhead."
S eoul In HU blessed word there is a
full revelation of His mind recorded for
our learning. "For whatsoever things
were wiittou afore time were written for
our learning that we through patience
aud comfort of the Scripture might have
hope." The Scripture was able to make us
wise, beuce the ueco&sity for a revelation.
NO REMEDY BY NATURE,
Nature offered no remedy for sinners,
no panacea for all the evils, no hope be
yond tho vale of tears but the Bible was
the hope of eternal life to uiaka us wise
Thirdly, by tho preaching of the gospel,
"Uo teach etc." Ministers nro sent to
turn men irom their darkness. What Is
preaching? St Mark said; "Uo unto all
the world and preach the gospel," this was
a command not to preach philosophy,
theories or new ideas but "the gospel."
to preacu "tuo word" ami uot the tables
of men, not the speculative tueologv but
the pure and unadulterated word of Christ.
The gospel of personal salvation through
faith iu a personal Saviour. This truth
should be burnt into the hearts of men
and no compromise should be made as to
its true meauing.
Some refuse or neglect all the means of
instruction. They neither road, study, re-
noct cr near witu attoution and some
uover learu tho truth. Somo refuse to
consider instruction. "Israel doth not
know, my people doth not consider."
Others refuse to obey the instructions;
they read and hear but they are not wise
and remain disobedient to the authority ot
uoil, "Hearers but not doers, etc."
uut wuat is tiie ioi iy and evil or such a
refusal!1 For an unlnstnicted soul is:
First In a stale of degradation instruc
tion elevntes the soul whilst icuorauce
Second An ignorant soul Is necessarily
nnlmppy. How many deplore the waste
of their time in tRoir yonngur days and in
not having applied their minds in tho
golden days of youth to profitable study?
No dount many had poor opportunities
and make it their excuse, but even thou
they misused the small opportunities they
had. How much, therefore, more import
ant it Is to seriously think of the great
number that will deplore in oternity thnir
negle-it ot study of the Bible us thousands
do when they come to a dying ben? Would
they, if they had tbe opportunity, one
more seize it with avidity? The proof of
it, said the preacher, would be for those
with the remainder of life before them to
eagerly stuly tbe Bible aud seek this in
struction. WNOItANCE TUB DEATH OF TUB SOUL
Third For an nninstructed soul will
evidently be lost. "My people perish for a
lack of knowledge." Ignorance, be em
phasized, is tbe poison, the disease ths
death of the soul.
Fourth How foolish and wicked It is
therefore to refuse instruction, and es
pecially if you consider further:
First Tbat our souls are capablo of un
bounded and everlasting improvomeut.
Heaven is not a place of inactivity; it Is a
place of perpetual unfolding of the bettor
powers of man free from the cares anil
sorrows of thii life, and iu hell no progress
ws made, but an eternul night of dark
ness. Second That they are indescribably
precious in the estimation of devils, nugels
and of their Creator.
Third That they have been redeomod
by Christ's unspeakably precious blood.
Fourth That they are destined to live
Fifth If lost through ignorance thoy
will be totally, eternally and irreparably
Sixth The'e souls too are ours "his own
soul," so that to lose our on soul Is self
murder, the wilful destruction of our hap
piness and peace forever.
These considerations should urge us to
the necessity of a continual growing iu
grace aud a knowledge of tbe Christ; to a
proper heart culture; to habits of study;
proper thoughts to educate ourselves for
the society of tbe redoemed. Iu concluding
with a powerful peroratiou, the reverend
gentleman remarked: Brethren, how is it
with you? Do you desire instruction lovo
it and roceivo it? Are you improving vonr
opportunities to the best of your abilities?
Are you daily familiarizing yourself with
the word of God? Do you study God in
nature, in providence. In revelation? Have
you regular hours or special times for med
itating upon God's word? Do yon cry af
ter Knowledge search for it as for hidden
tressuros? Have you, my friend, any con
ception of tbe value of your soul? Will
you uot today act tbe part of wisdom aud
accept of tbe invitatbn of the great
Teacher, and may the Lord help ns all to
learn oi turn and obey His Instruction.

The statement made in Saturday's

tbe city for park purposes was made
recently tliroiu-h the agency of Altor
ney W. V. Lutbrope, tbe representa
tive of tbe heirs in tbis city, and that

correct. Tbe city has uu option on 15

Roaring brook near the falls. Tbe
plot belongs to tbe Beckett estate, the
attorneys for whieh recently pre
pared papers for the trans

bus been postponed for a few days ow

much trouble will undoubtedly be
found in making prompt shipments to

the wholesale dealers of the city have
had untold trouble in getting sufficient

terprise tbat they wore enabled to
command a sulliciont supply from

Tbe statement that Food Inspector
Thomas Is credited with, to the eileot
that dealors took advantage of th
scarcity to m ike an unwarranted ad
vance in prices is tbe veriest drivel
Tbe fact is that many of the dealers
especially among the retailers, con
ducted business at an actual loss ruth"
than increase prices." It will now be
in order for the diiorimluating re
porter to extract another volume o
wisdom on tie moat question from
Mr. Thomas and prove that the above
statement by one of the best posted

false. The argus eyed food Inspector

J. be reasou advanced by tbe county
commissioners for not attaching their

approve the bills.

reotly ovr the steps, which gave it an
opportunity to escape through the
light bourds of tbe porch and did not
ulfect the foundation. Both doors of
tbe bouse, which is a large double one,
were blown from their hinges and
completely shattered, as was also the
windows and casings. Lirge piecss ot
siding were hurled around the yard.
Although Mr- Healey has a suspic
ion us to who the perpetrators of the
deed are, there is no direct evi lence as
ret against any one. Some of tbe
ueigbbors who were awakened by the
report came from their homes in time
to see two men making rapid strides in
the direction of Duck streot, and as
they did not turn aronul to investi
gate the causa of the explosion it is
thought that they were the miscreants.
Mr. Healy is an inoflinsive citizen
who has had no serious trouble with
anyone and no cause for the deed can
be attributed, uuless it is jealousy be
cause of Mr. Healey's success which he
has attained by bard work and industry.
