whether the church of God is in a Bull

great English historian, Sharon Turner,
a man of vast learning and of great accuracy, not a clergyman, but an att. rney as well as a historian, give this over
whelmin., statistic in regard to Christianity and in regard to the number ot
Christians in the difterent ceolties. In

At the beginning of this c-uurv there
were onht 150 missionaries. Now there
are 25,000 missionaries and native neipera and evangelhsts. At the beginnine
of this century there were only 50.000
heathen converts. Now there are 1,750.

There is not a seacoast on the planet

Christianity is falling back, and the
Bible, they say, is becoming an obeolete book. I go into a court, and whereever I find a judge's bench or a clerk's
desk I find a Bible. Upon what hook
could there i. uttered the solemnity of

in the trunk of the young man as he
leaves for city life? The .Bible. What
shall I find in nine out of every ten
homes in Brooklyn? The BIble. In
nine out cf every ten homes in Christendom.? The Bible. Voltaire wrote the
prophecy that the Bible in the nineteenth century would become extinct.
The century is nearly gone, and as there
have been more Bibles published in the
latter part of the century than in the
former part of the century do you thnc
the Bible will become extinct in the
next six years?
1 have to tell y ou that the room in
which Voltaire wrote that prophecv was
crowded from floor to ceiling with Bibles
from Swizerland. Suppose the congress
of the United States should pass a law
that there should be no more Bibles
printed in America and no o'e Bibles
read. It th-re are 40 000,000 grown
peoPle in the United States, tuere would
be 40,000.000 people in an army to put
down such a law sad defend their right
to read the Bible. But r-uppose the
congress of the United States should
make a law against the reading or publi
cation of any other book, how manyt
people woula go out on such a crusade?
Could you get 40.000 000 p~eople to go
out and risk their lives in defense of
Shakespeare's tragedies or (Gladstone's
tracts, or Macaue's "History of Baglano?"
You know that there are a thousand

A Ssnsational sermon.
The Darlington EI.'ald says
a
few
weeks ago Rev. J. C. Kilgo, the financial agent of Woff orri College, preached
a sermon in the Methodist Church at
Bennettsville which was sensational in
the extreme and which was far better
suited to the political platform than
be p-ilpit. Among other things Mr.
Mir. K Igo said that one of the causes
of bard times was a lack. >f confidence
in our fellow mans, and attributed this
lack or faith largety to the infi teace of
the ndwspapers. They thought they

newspapers from his tirade. This is
pretty plain languiag-, and we must
confess that in our judgmient it is too
strong to be used in the pulpit, but the
main question for the newspapers to
consider irn connection with it is, is
there any c'ausei for it so far as they are
concerred? Do they do any of the
things chat Mr. Kilgo claims that they
do? Ir. other words are they guilty of
the e'aarge? We fear that a great
many are, and ttrat is one reason why
such plain talk always hurts so. Instead of gettin'r mad, let us examine
the record and see if we are guilty and
if we are, let us mend our ways, and if
we are not guilty, we have a perfect
right to conclude that such language
does not aply to us, and we need not
take any part or it to ourselves.
