We have been called hither by presiden

Hod's house, that we might set our heads
to the ry thin of the bells. This is Thanks
giving moi-iiiug. Kuch soul is to become
a cathedral along whose niches and archi

H Te Ileum universal from whose towers
there shall be ceaseless chimes, blending

of the tin- ails. To be ungrateful Is to
live outside the realm of poetry and music
sculpture, painting. To be ungrateful is
to make out of life a songless summer
Ingratitude takes the lustre from the brow
of all brightest shining achievement. 1
um not here- this morning to till your
mind with the lumber of arguments why
we should be gratef ul why, as nutlonal
beings we should offer praise unto Hod.
When this world was made and slid down
the ways into Ihe ocean of snaee, the
morning stars sang together and' the sonj
of Hod shouted lor joy. on dow n the cen
turies the hvmnw liter for the eariy
church takes up the strain, "Praise tin
Lord from the earth, ye dragons and all
deeps; lire and ha'l, snow and vapors,
stormy wind fulfilling his word; moun
tains and all hills, fruitful trees and all
kings of the earth und all people, princes,
and all judges of the earth, both young
men ami maidens, old men and children,
let them praise the name of the Lord, for
His name alone Is excellent, and His glory
Is above the earth and heaven." This,
then, is my warrent for urging that nature
Is vocal with praise this old brown earth,
real with whirlwind and plowed wllh
earthquakes and shuttered bv volcano
strife this earth, man's hattletleld and hij
grave, Is a place of praise.
Dr. Dixon then drew attention to the
harmony of everything that goes to
ward the making of humanity and
things material. It was humanity's
weakness, said an old philosopher, that
Its gratitude was the most apt to grw
old before any other thins, and it
should be our care to refute that be
lief. He called attention to the Pil
grim forefathers and the cause for
thankfulness born of their coming.
Fruitful harvests had been the coun
try's bb-sslng all the year. In buslmss.
In life. In religion and in all else. "We
have had a harvest of national hon
or," he said, "and the national con
science has had the barnacles scraped
TUB JOY OP WOIIK.
Another strain In this carol of humanity
Is Ihe privilege and Joy of work. Work is
honorable and desirable. It is a blessing
and not a curse. The trouble with Adam
was that he didn't have work enouirh to
keep him oet of mischief. Adam might
have been in Helen yet anil nil the rest of
us have been there as well If he had
been compelled to raise his own fruit. The
fruit raised Itself. Some one has said:
Work Is Hospel on Its blunt end. A trop
ical climate and Satan go together
wickedness ami laziness are twin sisters.
Work and w or hip Is a part of the divine
believe New England triumphs In her
glorious and g lor i lied Influence over the
whole American domain because her peo
ple were compelled to delve among the
rocks and scratch a living out of the In.
hospitable soil. The men who settled In
the south were enervated by the climate,
were drawn Into habits of listlessness and
thus easily became a prey to sending for
people to come and do their work for
them. Humanity's carol may well burst
forth because of humanity's progrnss. The
Fpirlt of the New Testament is a spirit of
triumph. Optimism is a divine quality.
The world is growing belter, and w oiiht
to be glad over it ami give thanks to liod.
Your heart and mine responds therefor
to Ihe chorus of the redieineil and the
chorus of th angelic lion about the
throne "ThankSKlving be unto our Uod
forever and ever." '
It is a good thlrg for us to, halt amid
the stress and strain of this busy work-a-day
world and count up the favors of
heaven. We are far too busy with out
petitions and uot busy enough with our
praise. The adoration of the Psalmist
should be the everyday attitude of the
whole citation, "Mess the Lord. 1) my
soul, and forget not all His benefits."
From our hearts we might then say
with Teiinjson, "The good lio-1 seems to
have taxed Himself to see how much
happiness He could crowd Into one star."
lod notes the sparrows' fall He mites
also the snltit with which v.e receive the
tokens of His favor, our thankfulness
ought to transmute itself into deeds of
mercy ami hacritlce. In proportion as We
praise Hod, let us raise our fellow-men.
The deeper springs of life are loncli'd
when we move out into- the places of sor
row and want and carry with us healing
und blessing. Beyond all this the Master
will dually come to us with those sublime
words of approval. "I was hungiy and ye
gave me meat: 1 was thirsty, and ye gave
me drink." Our ministry for others will
triumph In the eternitlts of Hod when all
olhcr powers have melted away la mist.
Kaeh wold of sympathy Is marked III the
bonks of Hod. Kaeh willing footsteii In
caring for Ihe destitute and suffering is
registered by the angels. M iv we not also
say: The measure of our ministry to the
lowly and lost, the surging, suffering
masses of men und woim-ii about us. is
also tho measure, of our gratitude to Hod
for Ills mercies without number.
CAROL. OF 1IKAVKN.
And this leads me to speak of ihe carol
"Thanksgiving be unto our Hod forever
and ever." 1 have only borrowed for this
hour a snatch of 'heaven's hallelujah.
When the angel host had bowed before
the throne ascribing glory und honor,
and power, and might, und wisdom, und
thanksgiving unto our Hod forever and
ever, the face of one of the elders was
Hushed with a great glory us he saw a
host In w hite marching before the tin one
shouting their paeans of praise and Ills
wondering s:iiich Is "What are these
which are arrayed in white robes and
whence came they?" The answer swells
back like th; tides of ocean, "These are

and washed their robes and made them
while in the blood of the Lamb, therefore
nre they before the throne, ami serve him
day -ami night In His temple. But I would
have you believe that praise over there

Lord Salisbury. In his address as president

roll of the scientists, philosophers au

rise In the scale of genius they go up to

Jesus Christ. The note of thanksgiving
that I would make dominate In all this

"Ye ure the light of the
world," Matthew, v, i:s. 14. He suld:
What salt and light are to the material
world, that Christians are to the moral
und spiritual world. The Church of Christ
has not been altogether unmindful of Ihe
great trust committed unto her. Her salt
has been good aid her llijht has shone
from t'nie to time with great brightness.
It must be contliied, Indeed, that there
have beeen periods In the history of the
church, where the salt had almost lost
Its savor and where her light was so fee.
ble that it was only enough to make the
Hut notwithstanding all her faults, the
church has been, and still is, the great
I urllii r of public morals and the great
promoter of public virtue and Christianity
will yet be the universal religion. This
nation owes much to the church of Christ.
It was rocked ill the church's t-radle, Tho
church gave to It nerve and vigor. She
taught It to walk In the path of purity aid
honor aid manliness, and it would be the
darkest day this nation ever saw If It
should forget its nursing mother und Its
early tl amine.

applied, by way of uccoumiod.il Ion, to
this nation, for It has been regarded by
multitudes in all lands, as Ihe salt of the

will our nation maintain this character?
Yes, If the church continues to be faithful

MINE OFFICIALS BLAMED.
Coroner's Jury Finds That Thonas P.
Williams' Death Was Partly Dut! lo
His Own and Their Carelessness.
Cot-oner I.oimstreet conducted nn In
queat Wednesday liisht In Ihe case of
Thomas It. Williams, of Hollister ave
nue, who died from being rousted In
the explosion of gas In Storr's shaft on
Tuesday. Nov. PI. Tne jury met at
Ben Davis' hotel In Dutch Hap, where
the testimony of the witnesses was
taken. The Jury found that Williams
was partly to blame, but that the mine
i-lliiials were KUilly of negligence.
First there was a map or rather n
tr.'n liHT of the mine produced and It
was explained ly Inspector Kilwnrd
lioderick to the jurv. The main point
that was considered wns what caused
the iras to uccumulate where It did,
and whether or not the lire boss was
negligent lu not visiting daily the place
where the iras exploded and mukilig
sure that it was safe.
The place where Williams set ulY the
gas was In a Kimgway driven at right
angles with anol her gangway. And it
was driven In about :i'o feet when a
"fault" was met and It was abandoned.
The mine law says: "All underground
entrances to anv place not In actual
course of working or extension shall be
properly fenced across the whole width
of such entrances, so as to prevent per
sons from Inadvertently enterlm: the
Foreman Thomas Carson said ho had
not been In the old gangway in two
weeks before the accident, but when
he was the ventilation was all light.
However, there was a danger sign
placed at tho entrance to the gang
way. William Simms, the fireboss, whose
duty It is to examine the section in
which the old gungway is located, said
he had not been in the place since the
Wednesday before, which was six days
before the accident. He visited the old
workings only mice a week. There wns
a board across the entrance to the
gangway on which was written "Keep
Out of Here. Danger!"
Simon Thomas, another flrohoss In
the same shaft through the gas accu
mulated became some of the night driv
ers left a dour open and the current
of air was disarranged, permitting this
old gangway to choke up with gas.
The other evidence related to the Hid
ing of Williams after thu gas went
off. He went into the old gangway af
ter 11 tie or a rail and walked into the
body of gas und set It off. The ver
dict of the jury was:
"We, the undersigned jurors, find
that the said Thomas 1'. Williams came
to his death from an explosion of gas
In Storrs' shaft. No. 1, on Nov. 10, and
we further liinl thut his death was due
In part to his ow n carelessness, and In
part to the negligence of the mine of
ilcials In not placing a gate at a cer
tain point to divert the air current into
the gangway in which the explosion
occurred. We also lind that the aban
doned gangway was not properly fenced
and marked according to mine rules."
