thing very near to it was attained within

gathered there. This was tho modest

most prominent leaders of thu society in

worth. Then thuro is an oldur member,

Isaac Wilson, of Canada, who looks
like General O. O. Unwind, was the tlrst
and most lenglhy speaker yesterday. Ho
started out with C'hrlM's words, "He of
good cheer, for 1 have overeimiu thu
world." Thu Idea prevailed largely In tho
Christian world, he said, that tho fact of
Jusiis having overcome the conditions of
this llfo makes It comparatively easy for
thoso who bellovo this, and who also l
lievo that ho lived and died, to assure
themselves of thu enjoyment of their
Father's klndgoiu. T'heru might not Imj
so much dltl'erencu In the uiulcrstuiiiling
of various sects upon thin point as In their
manlier of expressing it. What ho had
galhoieil In his own oxorleneo was not
that Jesus merely overcame thu world for
our sakes and that wo have no overcom
ing to accomplish for ourselves, lint that
Jesus has shown us tho way by which wo
may overcome tho evils of litis life, and
may at last enjoy tho rewards which ho
has reserved for us in our Father'H man
sion. Wo havo all as much to overcome
as Jesus had. Them is no trial so great
ami no struggle so suvero but God will
enable us to meet It. It Is a co-oernt!vo
work Is'tuecn us and liim, just as it was
lsitweon JesiiH and him. God permits us
to lnim niHin His bosom. 11H Ho permitted
1 Ills only begotten Son to do In hlshoiirof
I anguish and deathly sorrow. Jesus, with
I all Ills petfection as thu typo of a spirit
ual conipioror, did not overcome the
wliolu world. It is not our particular
I mission to overcome all the evil there Is
l In tho world, yet wo may certainly sub
due that which Ih in our own hoiiIs until
our lives shall rolled thu purity and iih.

Serena Milium, of Canada, sjKike very
elispii'iilly, but unfortunately, bur voice
was so low lhat only a few of her sen
teiiccH could Is) caught by tho general
audience. Hotli she and tho concluding
seakor, Margaretla Walton, of Phila
delphia, weie rendered less intelligible
by the almost constant Intrusion of mar
tial iioIm'h from tho sheet. Then camo
most forcibly the thought of tho strango
contrast between this absorlietl anil
IH'aceful assembly, over which, despite
tho gay bits of head gear that were scat
tered hero and there, tlieio was an at
mosphere of deep and benignant solem
nity, and the marching batallons and
shouting multitudes without who were
celebrating the sanguinary glories and
tho lasting sorrows of war.
Margaretta Walton prayed In an affect
ing manner, tho while her voice trembled
with strong emotion, Then a little after
twelve o'clock Anion Sutton turned lo
ids nelghlsir and shook hands. The sig
nal passed down along tho long ranges of
seats, and tho meeting was over, T he
rest was a confused hubbub of social
greetings and conversation In the lobbies
and aisles and under tho iorch, as tho
