Vesper Service.

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

The sermon at the vesper service yesterday afternoon in Appleton Chapel was delivered by Rev. T. C. Williams upon verses from the fourth: chapter of the book of Proverbs. The reason why resolutions for the new year are so easily broken is because they are so trivial; since it is far harder to do a small, comparatively unimportant thing than a great one. A man should try to change himself morally and begin a thoroughly new and good life. A single bough may be hard to cut off; the axe should be laid at the root of the tree. Each day should be systematically mapped out, as by that means so much of what one ought to do can be accomplished that there will be little time left to spend in yielding to temptation.

The choir sang the following anthems: Beloved, let us love one another-Stainer; Say, watchman, what of the night?-Sullivan; Solo, For there is mercy with Thee-Bunnett. The soloist was Mr. George J. Parker.
