David's Orcatnp .s.
At the Baptist church last evening
Dr. C'ooloy delivered a dlcour o upon
the character of David , selecting as a
text : "Tho Lord hath "ought him , a
man after his own heart. " The sermon
was intensely practical , and was attent
ively listened to by a largo audience.
Said the speaker : "If wo judge of the
greatness of men by the space which
they occupy in history , David would bo
placed next to Moses as the greatest
human character of God's people.
David's life occupies si.\ty-ono chapters
of the sacred word , while that of Abra
ham is contained in fourteen. There is
no human character upon which the
divine historian delights to linger more
than upon that of him who combined
in himself the olllccs of prophet , king
and sweet singer of Israel. His career
from boyhood to death Is traced with
loving minuteness. If wo should judge
men also by the influence which
they have exerted upon the
world , wo should accord David a
foremost place among the great
actors of human history. Ho not only
founded a monarchy which survived as
long as his nation existed , but ho also
impressed himself on surrounding na
tions as the greatest warrior and ruler
of his ago. But this was not all. Ho
instituted , in its perfected form , the
religion of his country. Ho also , as the
pool of liis people , composed those songs
which have bccoino the comfort and
heritage of the world. The psalter of
David was not only used by his own
countrymen , but was , at the ver.y begin
ning of Christianity , adopted into the
services of the church. ] n the first
centuries Psalms were sung at the love
feasts and formed the morning and
evening hymns of the primitive Chris
tians. O'f the other scriptures , in the
fifth century , the generality of men
knew next to nothing , but the Psalms
were again and again repeated in pri
vate houses , in marketplaces , in streets ,
by those who had learned them by heart ,
mid who soothed themselves by their
divine melody. 'When other parts of
scripture are used , ' says Ambrose ,
'there is such a noise of talking in the
church , that you cannot hear what is
said ; but when the psalter is read , all
are silent. ' Among all branches
of the church , Protestant , Catholic
and Greek , the psalms form an
important part of their public worship.
By tlieso spiritual hymns men have
often expressed the deepest and holiest
emotions of their lives. By them Au
gustine was consoled on his death bed.
Clir.vsostom , Athenasius , Savonorola
wore cheered in persecution. With the
words of a psalm Polycarp , Columba ,
Hildebrand. Bernard , Huss , .Tcromu of
Pniguo , Columbus Henry V. . Kdwiml
Vf. , Xavier , Melanotbon and Jewell
breathed their last. Even the Savior ,
in his death struggles , breathed out his
prn.ver to tlio Father in the words of
a palm. . The sixty-eighth psalm
cheered Cromwell's soldiers to vic
tory at lumbar , Lord Bnrloigh
selected the psalms out of
the whole bible as his special delight.
They were the framework- the devo
tions and war cries of Luther. No
hymns have so a fleeted the world as his.
Ho speaks , mid the pent up feelings of
millions of Christian hearts find expres
sion and a voice. No mere human be
ing , save Paul and Moses , has left so
deep a mark on this world's history.
Seeing then that so large a portion of
the divine word is occupied- with the
life and deeds of him who was the great
progenitor of the Savior of the world , it
becomes us to study his character. The
space devoted to him by the bible
history commands our attention. "
The'speaker began with the first ap
pearance of David in history as a
shepherd hey in the fields of Bethlehem ,
when Samuel came to select a successor
to Saul as Icing of Israel. Ho was by
his father , Jesse , intrusted with work
usually done by his slaves , and was con-
sidere'd of so little importance that ho
was not invited to the feast of his fam
ily. "He was chosen king of Israel , the
appointed prophet of God and the father
of the promised Messiah. " David was
described as short of stature , stoutly yet
gracefully built , with auburn hair and a
bright eye. While ho was in hiding
from his enemy Saul ho developed his
love for music and song. Ho was so
proficient in handling the harp and lute
that his fame spread throughout the
nation. Hero ho developed his love of
nature which ho so often expressed in
his psalms. "All the sublime imagery
of his psalms were taken from the scenes
of his youth when ho was a shepherd
"Latest born of Jesse's race ,
Wonder lights thy bashful fuco ,
While tlio prophet's gifted nil
Seals theo for u path of toil.
Go and mind thy Hock awhile ;
At thy doom of gruutnrss sinilo ,
Hold to bear God's heaviest load ,
Dimly guessing at the road
Hooky road and scarce ascended ,
Though thy foot bo niiKel-tended.
Double praini ) thou shall attain
Jn royal court and battle plain.
Then coinus heartache , care , distress ,
Blighted hopes and loneliness.

"Strange that guileless face anil form
To lavish on thu scathing Morm ;
Little chary of thy fame

But wo moulil theo for the root

"David's lifo at this time was full ol
hair-breadth escapes. " The speaker
followed his life from his occupation ol
the throne. ' 'The first of his racc. ' :
His love for his parents and brothers
was described at length. Ills wonder

A .Sunday Hcliool Tribute.
Yesterday noon the Congregational
Sunday school was presided over for the
hf-t time by Ml' . D. A. .ludd , who has
served at superintendent for four years
past. Mr. .ludd and family leave to
night for California , intending to re
main there this winter , and possibly
make that their permanent home.
Should favorable business opportunities
pre-cnt themselves , it is not unlikely
that Mr. .ludd nuiy return here in the
spring , as his preferences are for a lo
cation here , but this is uncertain. At
the loc of the class study of the lesson
yesterday , the following resolutions
were presented and adopted unani
mously :

regret that he and his estimable wife have
decided to remove from here , with a proba
bility of making their homo In the golden

licsolvi'd , That we hereby express our sor-
low at purling with our beloved superintend
ent , whom we will miss from his accustomed
place , and Urn hope that In the new Held to
which ho Is going he will find Christian work
which he will bo able to perform with as
much satisfaction to others as that he 1ms
done hero.

high esleem and great confidence in him , not

petitions to the throne of grace , and will
pray for his continued spiritual and temporal

Yesterday afternoon at ! 5 o'clock Mrs.
Conrad Geiso passed away from this life ,
aged forty-two years. She had been for
a. year past an acute sufferer from a
dropsical affection of the heart , but she
had been seriously ill only four weeks.
Her death was not unexpected , but it is
a sad blow to the family.
She was the daughter of Mr. Horn ,
formerly proprietor of "Horn's Park. "
She was joined in marriage to Mr.
Geise about twenty-five years ago. She
was a devoted wife and mother and
highly esteemed by the very large cir
cle of friends in which she moved. Her
husband and seven children are left to
mourn the loss of wife and mother.
Two of the boys , Fred and Edward ,
are well-known 'in business circles. The
remaining children , live in number , are
younger. Three are of such tender
years as to imperatively need the loving
care and attention of a mother.
The sympathies of the community
will go out to these stricken otic * in this
hour of bereavement. The funeral
service will ho held to-morrow , Tues-
dny. afternoon at - o'clock , at the family
I'esidenco on Frank street.

One of the most practical systems of
organised cfi'ort which lias been devel
oped in latter years is that known as
the St. Andrew's brotherhood. It is of
the same order as the White Cross
movement and the Y. M. C. A. It com
bines all that is good as to methods and
aims at securing the best life for the
man , i. e. , morality in all that the term
implies. Its field is exclusively among
men. The rcitson why the field is lim
ited at all lies in the necessity which
everywhere exists for active work in be
half of young men. The hone of the
future is in the character of the men
this generation produces , hence the ne

will visit Council Blnfi's next Sunday

The objects of the order will bo fully

During the past five months the Ogden
house has not been fully opened for
business , and yet has held its leverage
upon its old lime patronage by furnish-
ing-lodgings. This time of partial in
activity has been fully utilized by the
owner , M. S. Stout , and the entire
building has been thoroughly over
hauled. Heretofore considerable
trouble has been experienced in keep
ing the house warm enough for comfort ,
The .steam fixtures have been examined
and found to contain lime incrustaliom
to a depth sufficient to almost entirelj
close the pipes. This dilllcully has been
remedied. The painter has been al
work wherever needed and the house it
now in eomplolo shape. A great dea
of work remains yet to bo done. Tin
kitchen and dining room are to recoivi
attention at the hands of the mechanii
and decorator. The hotel will probably
be ready for opening in three or foui
weeks. "Until the formal opening Mi-

Diamond Cutting In Iiomlon.
London Times : The public are proba
bly not aware of the extent to which
diamond cutting has been revived in
London , Nearly two hundred years ago
Englishmen were the finest diamond
cutters in the world , the trade being
nearly all carried on in London , and at
the present time old English-cut diamonds
mends will always fetch a very high
price , as the cutting is still fco much
Through religious persecution they
migrated to Amsterdam , where they
have fcinco remained. At the time when
the African diamond Holds were discov
ered there was only one diamond cutter
in London. Dutchmen wore accordingly
engaged to work in London from Mon
day morning till Friday sunset , and
they were to receive 10 a week each
man. They struck several times suc
cessfully for higher wages , but when
they demanded 18 per week each man
they were discharged , and Mnglish gem
cutters were put at the work.
Al first the Englishmen were only
able after a deal of trouble to cut a class
of diamond in one month which they
could now cut in about four days. As
soon as it was clearly proved that Eng
lishmen had once more gained the art ,
tlio Worshipful Company of Turners de
cided to give Hnglish cutters every en
couragement , and have , with the valu
able assistance of the Baroness and Mr.
Burdett-Coutts , offered money awards
in competition against the Dutch for
the best-cut diamonds. After several
contests the Englishmen gained the
llrst pri'/e and most of the others.
Up to the end of J8M , out of four of
the principal mines of South America
namely. Kimberley. DeBeers , Bultfon-
toin aiid Du Toil's Pan , no less than
: ! : , ( ) ( ) , ( ) carats of diamonds ( or more
than six and a half tons' weight ) have
been extracted , realizing about 40.000-
000. The diamonds now discovered are
nearly all found in British possessions
namely , Africa and India. Ypt the
vast majority of the stones are still sent
to foreign countries to bo cut and pol
ished , which every Englishman snould
consider ought not to-be. As one of the
trcatest secrets connected with the
grade consists in the one word patience ,
there is an immense field for the em
ployment of women. As a nation , the
Americans are the finest judges of diamonds
mends in the world , and it ib lo London
that America goes for her finest-cut
mnnds. The last official report pub
lished was that America took iiliout
! ! , ( )00,000 ) worth of cut diamonds an-
ifually from England.
