Ib-v. M It. bap-man, of the St. Louis Christian Advocate, preached an interesting sermon in his usual interest ing manner, from Luke I.. ''.''. "What manner of child shall this be?" After a feu- intio-ductory remarks to the orphans, w ho sat in tin. front three rows, the divint-impresscd upon them the fact that they had much to learn and much to forget. The s'ory of John's baptism and numerous .-.net-dotes, with a moral signilie tnee. were felicitously narrated. Three great cautions were urged-that little faults 1 overcome, that what is done at all be done well, and that his hearers live now as they want to In u hen older. !r. I hap-man tixilc eeeption to the theory by which little children were denied the privilege of l-eing Christians on the plea of youth, while they wen set up -s samples of Christ's kingdom, incon-elus'iou he addressed himself brielly to parents. Mrs. sleeth. of the Methodist Orphans" home, made a short address regarding the work. In her report Mrs. sb-eth showed that there were forty-live children in the home, the average during the year lieing seventy live. The annual average expense of maintaining the children was SK0 apiece. A lot was recently purchased and .-1 new "-7.'.l0i) home is contemplated, iii.-0uO being already at ban!. IlestraitUe storm.

Aug. 21 Irving Tarlc is a cami-mcetiiig resort situated K tweeu Uashington and It.iltimore. The iiegnvs have been holding forth there for some days past, during which l'rctl Poiiglass paid the camp a visitand delivered an address, iu the- course of i w Inch he said: I Tor fifty xears or more 1 hae earn-' cstly adviv.itcd the adv.inceiucut of the 1 colored nice and urged what I have thought were the best means of pro moting their frieiullv relations towaul the w bite people. The best sentiment that 1 can utter is your sentiment. There is but one race and we are one variety of that race. Tcinpeniuee is goisl. but whisky proves that we are all of one race, for it has just the same effect upon a negro as it docs upon the white man. If you never drink you will never be drunk. Cauip-mcetings are good things, for they not only call attention to leligious matters that pettaui to this world, but also to the other things that pertav to it. Wi should grasp the blessings of the world and develop a perfect character. If w e do not use this wot Id right, what guarantee is there that we will us, the other one right'.' It is important to know how to make the best of lmth worlds. If you make the best of this w orld ou will he ready for the next. There are many motives for gio.l conduct. I'.ntb. air and sea all preach to lis of what ue should do and know-. Theeaith has no piejudice. The tiehl will grow just as good a ciop for a colored man who will work as fur aiMomt else. The sun shines for all and the rain descends on all. We should add to our faith virtue and to Ui tile kuowl-edge. Sclf-iuilulgcnci: is what they blame us for. and they say that we can not control 1 11 appetites or govern ourselves. ' en is some apology for that, for there w as a time w hen w e could not indulge ourselves. Mitt if we make goiHt progress ue must be industrious and intelligent. One hundred dollars is 1IHI days ahead. I ne of the curses of our nice is poverty. Money is not exactly the root of all evil. We must acquire property, and we must leave something Kvery dollar laid up is one. day ahead. Italtunore is a lieautiful city, but I remember when the highest, house on I-'ells I'oint was three stories high. Now in some parts of Italtimoie they are running them up to ten stories high. Kvery thing has some way of acquiring property. Why. that tree out then-is putting out its roots to get the fertility of thesoil mid use it. It stretches its limbs to catch the sunlight on its foliage and thus develops and grows. Kvcii the pig will teach a lesson. I have seen boy:, with cIImiws out and hat crowns in running after a brass band while a pig hunted along the street and found a cabbage leaf. The pig got more than the boys did. Tim birds teach a lesson. 'I bey make a, nest and get married. We should also make nests and get married. 11ml stay marricd. We should learn how to think. If there is no thought there is no invention. If there is no mention there will lx; no progress. You can't make an empty bag stand when it contains nothing but wind. Wind must give place to steam. I know a minister who used to lwirrow 510 every Saturday night and pay it back Monday morning. When asked why be did that he replied: "I can preach l etter when I have Sill in my pocket." A boy in New York once wanted to go over to Itrooklyn on the ferry-boat. He asked a gentleman please to givn him a few cents. "Haven't you any money?" asked the gentleman. "No, sir." said the boy, - not a red cent." "Well, I won't give you any money," was the reply, "for if you haven't any you might as well stay hen as go over there." One without money is of small account anywhere. Poverty may eeit pity at lirst, but when it is established poverty can not win respect. The best way to keep a man out of the mud is to have his boots blacked. I once visited Kngland, 1'rance. Italy and Kgypt, and I found that whatever a man's complexion is the same eondi-tions of sobriety, industry, fidelity and knowledge that will improve one people will improve another. We are yet on trial. Some say that we have not the capability of self-government, but tin-progress of the negro must not be measured by the progress of the Anglo-Saxons. We must In measured not from the heights, but from the depths. Two hundred and forty years of absolute Ixmdage and a long life of barbarism behind that. There is where we came from. Then, too, when we wen; emancipated we were set free under the most unfavorable circumstances. We were not emancipated-by will of our owners, or either by a settled sentiment in the country. We wen-emancipated by military means for punitive purposcsmot to punish 11. but to punish somelxxly else. When the Israelites were emancipated they were told to Iiorro'.v jewelry from their masters, and they have lx-en in the jewelry business ever since. When the Ittissian slaves wen emancipated they wen-given three acres of land each and tools to work with, but we were turned 1 ose without a hoe or a hatchet. We were told that as the Yankees had freed us the Yankees might feed us. Senator Itutler talks about "-ending us away, but they need us right here to do the rough work that tender, tapering fingers can not do. I-'ifty-thrco years ago Massachusetts was as clearly pro-slavery as Maryland, and when we went from one place to another we h.i I to go in the "Jim Crow" car. At church during communion we had to stay in the gallery or v.-ait at the door until the preacher said "Conic and take this communion to your comfort, for (icd is 110 respecter of persons." I would rather be a slave and have my leg fettered than be the master and have th) other end. 0.' the clmia tni my coii
