Rev. President Andrews of Brown University conducted the service in Appleton Chapel yesterday evening He took as the text for his address Psalm 107, 8th verse, "Oh that men would praise the Lord for his goodness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men." It seem unnatural the preacher said, that men should need to be exhorted to gratitude to God. Yet many devotedly pious people, while they feel the duty of gratitude, are certainly not spontaneously grateful. This is largely due to a wrong method of looking at puzzling questions of belief. Dr. Andrews then considered some of these questions, and showed that God is not arbitrary in fixing the total store of good and happiness in the world, or in distributing this store, and that it is a mistake to suppose that he takes away from one man's good to add to another's. The choir sang the following selections: "Lord of all power and might," by Mason; "Let not your heart be troubled," by Trembath; "The radiant Morn," by Woodward.
