Dr. miorrlK of the Boston Theolonlcil Unlvemliy on "The Benuoui a Product.' The Rev. George K, Morris of Boe. ton had been announced to address the conference on a moat interesting subject, "The Sermon, a Product 1 ' The result was a large and intelligent assemblage of visiting mlnlstere, and many interested citizens of Logansport. The Rev. A. Greenman presided and introduced Dr. Morris, at present occupying the chair of practical theology in the Boston University. In part he said: ••Never in the world's history did man' advance more rapidly toward perfection than now. There is progress In every line. When this conference met here in 1873 no such high order of intelligence could have been seen in the gathering of ministers as is shown today. There is a cry that the dead might hear, for Improvement In our pulpit material. There is a lack of timber compared to several years ago, relative to the demand. Only the bright man can hold a congregation. There must ba better sermons tomorrow than yesterday; there must be better sermons next week than were ever heard before. There is the sermon as a product. There must be behind a sermon, a man of organization, of heart, of soul, of brain power, acd he must have good raw material, and the skill to uee it. The amount of reading done by the minister of thirty years ago would not do for the before breakfast work of tha modern minister. There was a time that a man could read only the Bible, and satisfy the pew. We must not give less of the Bible than our fathers did hut we must adapt ourselves to our time as they did to theirs. Thepeoplo are today living In their brains. They are alive at the top. The preachers who are mentally dull wllltalk'to empty pews. Turn on more power. Carry better grist to the mill. The mao-who Is careless in his reading, will find the product running thin, '•The successful minister must have eyes to see Into the invisible, aud be able to see its splendor. He must be able to talk to the heart, the brain of this time. The man who has read a flower, the product of God, can nevor again preach a dull sermon. He will have had a lesson in the hunger of the time for the beautiful Talk about elocution, you must have more tenderness, more sweetness in the soul. • 'A man who has listened to the song of the birds until his eyes have filled with tears, can never again preach the same kind of a sermon as before. • Sermons written in a quiet 'study,unconsciously adapted to empty space are very often read toemptj apace. "Don't try to make a sermon or deliver a sermon without having your heart with you, and haying sympathy with the hungry hearts of your hearer*. • 'K you are decided that you will not take physical exercise, you may decide that your dayi In the pulptt are numbered.
