Professor Lyon, at the Chapel yesterday evening, spoke en the character of Jeremiah, on his times, life and teachings. He said: Jeremiah was the greatest of the prophets, not the deepest thinker, but the strongest character. Naturally timid, the conviction that he spoke the words of God gave him courage, and he spoke words of truth for all times and all peoples. Sympathetic and patriotic, yet he was severe in the face of persistent wrong-doing. There are three permanent elements of truth underlying the prophet's thought (1) there is but one God, (2) the government of the world is righteous, and the permanency of a state rests on the righteousness of the individual.
During the evening the choir sang the following anthems: "We Beseech Thee" - West. "Try Me, O God" - Roberts. "Like as the Hart" - Adams.
