A BISHOP SPOKE.
At First Chapel Exercises An Inci-
dent of College Opening.
The Oregon Agricultural College
opened last Tuesday with an at
tendance of about 400 students.
On account of the Lewis and Clark
. Exposition, a hundred or more
students will be delayed a few days
in order that they may take advan
tage of the great fair.
The exercises began promptly at
8.50 in -the morning with prayer by
Rev. Simpson of Good Samaritan
Episcopal church of Corvallis aud
was followed by Bishop Morrison of
New Orleans. Bishop Morrison
took the following text from
the 1st chapter of St. John: "Keep
the good wine till the last of the
feast." The entire address was
full of well founded advice to the
voune men and women, many of
whom are away from home and
parents for the first time in their
lives: it consisted largely of words
of sympathy for the girl and boy
who are starting out for the higher
life in business and in the intellect
He said; "Young men and
women, you are now at the open-
sag of a seaeon of books and letters
Many of you have entered College
for the first time in your lives:
hence I desire to speak to you of
ihe first grest miracle wrought by
our Savior; it was His advent in
the work miraculous: it was his
first instruction to men and women
for he was a teacher and he thought
as no other man thought; he spake
as no other man spake; he suffered
as no other man ever suffered.
You are here to eo. from the life
you have lived to the enjoyment
that living better will give you,
This was Christ's entire trend. He
was always doing somethiug good;
ihe touched water and it became
wholesome wine; he spoke aloud,
the corpse arose and Lazarus came
Jlte sooner you come, young
men and women, into touch with
the teachings of Christ, the sooner
you will come to your higher inter
In this college you will find
many problems that your teachers
will help you solve but there will
foe many problems and many exi
gencies ihat no teacher except
Christ can solve for you.
You will notice that the Savior,
in his desire that the servants
might have a part in his great mir
acle, said: "Fill up the wa'er
pots." In order that you may
have a part in the greater life, you
may expect to live, you will be
called upon time and again to dc
the things that a laggard might ex
pect others to do for him. Your
college life will prepare you (or a
citizenship of 50 or 60 years at the
most: thai is all; this Faculty pre
pares you for such a citizenship but
Christ's teachings prepare you for
a citizenship of the whole universe
and for eternal ages.
You will also notice that He told
them to f 111 the six pots of water to
The brim full to overflowing; this
as the way that God does business.
He does not do things on the scant;
when he made the ocean, he made
it full. There is nothing narrow in
God no narrowness or meanness;
everything is kindness and fullness
You will notice also that Christ
kept the good wine till the last of
tfee feast ; this is the theory of the
Christian life. The world says,
"Drink the best first"; Christ says,
"Keep the best wine for the last of
Your college career is a part of
the 'Christian theory which pre
pares men and women for the best
of life at the close a Christian sun
set without a cloud. This you
will have if you allow Christ to cul
tivate the heart while these teach
ers cultivate the head.

In Memory of Clyde Tharp.
One dear form lay on a slab,
One form so still and white,
Clyde, the wife and child's com-
Had gone to a home of height.
O Clyde, my husband, the wife
How ran 1 give yon up like
And then with a wail of pain,
Upon bis brow a kiee.
In silence they stood beside her,
To comfort, tothe and calrr,
The heart eo ciually bleeding,
Because the husband wa
from it torn.
Don't weep for Dearest Clyde,
Do not wish him back again;
For he is only waiting on the!
A star for your golden crown!
And when vou think , of that lin
That holds one form so dear,
Remember father and mother
that your Clyde,
Is with our Blessed Svior;
And try t)think that bye and bye
When you are done with earth
That you, too, will go home with
him to rest,
In a mansion bright and fair.
And remember that circling
round you now,
Are myriads of angpl forms
And that Clyde, dear Clyde, i
- with the baod,
That shields you from all barm
Then be earnest in Hia eervice
Let your soul be filled with
For a few more days will show to
Your work God holds in store.

town. I was lodged in a peasant's cot

sentry challenging some newcomer.

a gypsy wanted to see me in private.
A soldier (a gypsy) entered, and on my

that the enemy wiis approaching to

thing suspicious,' I said. 'No, your
highness, because the enemy is still a
long way off.' 'But how do you know
this?' I asked. 'Come to the window,
your highness,' answered the man. 'Do
you see those biras nying over xue

not birds sleep as well as men? They
certainly would not fly about if they
were not disturDea. xne enemy is

Emerson on Lincoln.
The president impressed me more
favorably than I had hoped. A frank,
sincere, well meaning man, with a law
yer's habit of mind, good, clear state
ment of his fact, correct enough, not
vulgar, as described, but with a sort of
boyish cheerfulness, or that kind of
sincerity and jolly good meaning that
our class meetings on commencement
days show in telling our old stories
over. When he has made his remark
he looks up at you with great satisfac
tion and shows all his white teeth and
laughs. He argued to Sumner the
whole Case of Gordon, the slave
trader, point by point, and added that
he was not quite satisfied yet, and
meant to refresh his memory by look
ing again at the evidence. All this
showed a fidelity and conscientiousness
very honorable to him. When I was

lecture that a Kentuckian seems to
