Other Interesting Notes.
A patriotic Horvloo van lield In the
Simpson M. K. church last evening,
when the members of Camp No. ITS,
I'. O. 8. of A. attended In ti body. U

Washington, whose picture wus muhpuii
dtd ubovo the pulpit. Tho Interior of
tho church was decorated In the na
Tho choir, under the leadership of
Prof. W. W. Joiicm, rendered a .poolnl
programme, assisted by the Rltnppon
Stale qttnrtctte. The church wiih filled
with peoplo to hear the pastor deliver n
npcclnl sermon on "The Ideal Citizen."
3Io chose his text from Muthew xxll:21,
"Render therefore unto t'noenr the
things which are fVii-siir's and unto
Ood the thing that are (Sort's." An
outline of the Mormon Is here given.
Ood fcclts to do some of hl.t work la
this world through the state. lie wauls
nil Ttln people in this world to concern
themselves with the thlnv.s of the woild
Jind establish righteous relations between
all claf-s-es of men.
(leorge Washington was tin ideal fit I
I'.'.'ii. .n Ideal citizen U:
.'"Irst. A. person of blgh moral clinr
ncter. He should he morally honest, tils
lnteprlty of life and purity of conduct
hho-ilil bo tnifiuestloneil fie should love
i-ichleniisness beeauso righteousness ex

lieuilutiee of character: a backbone of
Heel, Jmt also gentleness of disposition,
because an uncrowned king, as Is oveiy
American citizen, should b master (if
himself, his conduct, desires and alms.
'e owe it to our country, to society as
well ns to ourselves and our (?ud to
live n pure, moral life.
Second. T.I10 ideal citizen Is a politi
cian In the best sense. I do not mean a
partisan. A true politician Is one who
seeks his country's Interests rather than
his own; while a pjrlisan raiiv be seek
ing his own, and not his country's good.
The supply of the latter class largely ex
ceeds tho lecltlmnto demand; while the
field which opens before the former Is
wejl-nigh boundless. livery American
citizen ought to take an interest in pub
The best service we cm render the
weaker races la the Philippines Is to
lift tip our own lives to the purity de
manded by high character and deal with
those peoples on tho basis of the Oolden
Ttlile. The best service we can render
ourselves is to lift up the moral tone of
life hi tills land.
Keep only the very host men in ollloi.il
position; purify the ballot box and place
the mark of Cain upon the man who buys
n vote, sells a vote, intimidates n voter,
takes advantage of the weakness, neces
sity or occupation of another to compel
him to vote other than his convictions
allow; contributes to a. corruption fund to
buy votes or otherwise offends against
the purity of political life.
Three-Au Ideal citizen Is n patriot. Till
Is a glorious country. There Is moro land
under the stnrs nud stripes than in the
continent of Europe. Wo have resources
enough to sustain a billion people. Wo
have free education and great prosper
ity. Wc have spiritual, religion and po
litical liberty. Wo are part of tho most
magnificent national llfo under the stars.
Paul said! "I am 11 Roman." That
meant much, It meant protection and
honor, lint It menns moto to bo able to
say I 11111 an American citizen. That not
only means protection and honor, hut It
means oportttnlty. Tt menus a call to tho
highest patriotism and highest fidelity.
Kourtli. The ideal citizen Is a cheerful
taxpayer. To shout on the Fourth of
July nnd then dodge tho tax collector
In the autumn Is the mark of a nuisance
rather than it patriot.
Fifth. The Ideal citizen Is a. christian.
The best citizenship demands 11 high
moral ehoracter and high morality only
springs from religion In the heart. The
right kind of n citizen Invert righteousness
but the love of righteousness must flow
from ti contact with the author of rlght
ousness. To be a christian Is the great
thing. It Is everything In tho end. To
love Ood and keep his commandments Is
the whole duty of man.

Eloquent Sermon by Rov. Dr. O. Par
sons Nichols, of Blnghamton, on
"Consecration of Life."
ltev. G. Parsons Nichols, D. D of tho
First Presbyterian church, at Ulng
hninton, N. Y occupied the pulpit of
the Presbyterian church nt yesterday
morning's service and preached u most
eloquent und forceful sermon. Inking as
subject, "Consecration of Life." He
took for hln text tho words found In
Matthew xvl,- 25: "Whosoever shall
save his life shall lose It und whosoever
shall lose his life for my sake shall
rind It." He said In part:
"You save not what you keep to
yourself but what you take from your
self. You lose not what you give out
und purt with, hut what you hold hack
nnd use for your own purposes. Self
renunciation Is self exaltation.
"The man who always thinks about
his own bodily health Is sure to lose it.
but he who forgets about himself In
some high pursuit leaves disease be
hind him and goes forth sound In mind
and body. The woman who is always
studying self attainments that she may
win admiration Is the one whom no one
admires, while she who loses sight of
personal attractions in the doing of
some great work is she who wins the
admiration she never seeks.
"The student who Is swayed by mo
tives higher than his own umbltlons is
tho one who makes the most rapid Im
provement, while the one who seeks cul
ture for culture's sake, falls in what he
"There are just two things one can
do with his life. You can do either one
but not both. You can spenl your life
on yourself and lose it or you can yield
your life to tho service of God and
thereby attain life eternal. It nil de
pends on the life one seeks.
"Make tho present life your end and
you must lose it here and hereafter,
but make you life a menus for the
higher end which God has In view and
you will keep your life here and save
your life hereafter. We know the only
life of many is within him, the only life
that God knows, the only life that death
leaves, Is within him. My v.ish in clos
ing for you all Is a life true, beautiful
and eternal. These will be yours just
in the degree that you live into it.
"Do not be cold, do not he cynical,
do not be selfish, but consider you have
to live for "others, remember even mis
ery comes from want of sacrifice, re- ,
member you help others only by sac
rifice. Remember every thing you do
will he measured by its sacrifice."
The singing of several selections by
John T. Watklns were much enjoyed
by the large congregation present.
