Appleton Chapel.

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

Rev William Lawrence preached at Appleton chapel last evening, taking as his text John vii, 24 26, where Christ gives his testimony for John the Baptist and tells the people that John was not the reed shaken before the was not the reed shaken before the wind, nor the man clothed in soft raiment, but the prophet. These three symbols are types of characters that are before us to choose front; the reed is the man in college or in public life who is blown hither and thither by every breeze and unable to stand firm against temptation; the man in soft raiment is the being who has no higher aim in life than the attainment of social notoriety; but the prophet is the true, strong spirit, breathing forth hope, comfort and peace.

The choir sang Barnaby's "Christ whose Glory," Buck's "Jerusalem" and Tuckerman's "Lighten our Darkness."
