building Inspector. John Nelson.
In tlie opinion of the present city
Administration, i melted at the recent

The duty of the hiilillng Inspector Is
to pass upon the plans for every build

and, after the plans are apprised, to
supervise the onstruetlnn. to such uu
extent, at least, that there will be no
deviations from the plans that will
violate any of the city building laws.
Hy having a chief Inspector and an
assistant, it Is flctned, the wmk that
should be done by the depaltiueut can
be done thoroughly. One can do the

the actle votk of construction, or
make such other division of the labors
as will be the most convenient.

Other Like Sages.
llev. Mr. Warren G. Partridge, for
merly pastor of tlio I'cnn Avenue llap
tlst fhurch, hut now pastor of n large
Institutional church In Cincinnati,
pleached two sermons to tho mcmherH
of hli old congregation yesterday. In
the absence of the regular pastor,
Hev. Dr. Kobcrt 1 Y. I'lercc, who Is
sojourning tit Ocean Grove.
Tho church was thronged to the
doors at both services with old ft lends
of Dr. Partridge, glad to welcome lilttt
ba"l to the church wheie ho labored
In nther days. Ho expressed, on both
oernslntii, his great delight at being
baclt once mote at the scene of his
former labois, and spoke with much
feeling cf the- wonderful Christian fel
lowship existing between the various
denominations In this city. Ills even
ng set moil was based on the follow
ing text taken from John I: fi, 7, 8, !.
"There was a man sent fiom God,
whose name was John. The same
came for a witness, to bear witness of
the Light, that all men through him
might believe. He was not that Light,
but was sent to bear witness of that
Light. That was the true Light,
which llghtcth every man that com
eth Into the world."
In beginning his sermon, lir. Par
tridge told how John the Haptlst was
sent by God to bear witness to t'lirl-tt
and described the scenes on the banks
of the Jordan when his pleaching was
listened to by tens of thousands. He
referred to John as "the Incarnation
of heroism and sincerity."
"John's first and greatest function."
said he "was to be a witness of the
Light to come. There are many rea
sons why tho Savior needed a witness
then and why he needs witnesses to
day. In the first place. It must be i
inembered that the Messiah came In
cognito. As the Gospel says, 'the word
was made tlesh and dwelt among
men.' Christ's divinity was veiled by
His humanity and John was talsed as
a witness to the truth that this .Man
wa God.
"Tho people of that time, though
they had been prepared for centuries
for the coming of the Messiah, needed
a witness, because their eyes were
blinded with sin and they were ac
cordingly unable to perceive the pres
ence of a Deity swathed In humanity.
"I read recently of n physician in
Vienna who by constant experiment
and great patience succeeded In re
storing the sight to the eyes of a child
who was born blind. The eye of the
child was a perfect organism, tho
blindness existing only in the brain.
The physician placed It In a dark room
and by keeping cln les of light revoh -
lng before Its eyes for weeks and
weeks, finally succeeded In getting it
tn distinguish light from darkness.
The rest was comparathely easy.
"The work of this physician should
be the work of every preacher. eery
professor and every parent. They
should be patient with the little chll
dien. They should try by every means
In their power to lead the great hosts
of young people out of the blindness
of sin into the light of the gospel.
There are such hidden capabilities and
such latent talents to be found among
the young people of this land that they
should all be led to do service for
tho Master.
"Jesus Christ Is the light that has
lighted every man who has come Into
the worhK The Scriptures tell us that
He was the light of Adam and of Kve,
of Mof-cs, of the prophets and of the
psalmist. nis Influence may
be traced In the writings of some of
the great leaders of other faiths, such
as Confucius and Zoroaster. In the
writing of these j-ages we find a great
deal of wheat amongst the chaff. Wc
llnd a deal of ethical truth, anil I
believe firmly, that It can be traced
to the Influence of Christ.
"Are we who have received the light,
giving it out in all Its- fullness, beauty
and power'.' Are we disseminating It
as we should? Let us be mote and
more missionary churches. Let us re
ceive the Light of tho World Into our
souls and let us go and preach tho
gospel to every living creuture."
