There was the usual large attendance at Vespers yesterday afternoon. The service was conducted by Rev. George A. Gordon, assisted by Dr. F. G. Peabody. Mr. Gordon spoke briefly from the text,- "Remember thy Creator in the days of thy youth." To get a vivid idea of God and of our duty toward Him, we must keep him in our hearts from our youth up. The days of childhood are days of impressions. As we grow older our perceptions become duller, and our lives are less easily molded. Wax must be stamped when it is warm. Whenever a man raises an ideal late in life, he always regrets the possibility of achievement which might have been his, had he awakened sooner. If we begin early to follow the example of Christ, the goodness which at first comes by reflection will become instinctive.
The choir sang two anthems: Haking's "Doth not wisdom cry," and Carl Pfiueger's "How long wilt thou forget me, O Lord,"
