The Rev. W. J. Tucker, D. D., President of Dartmouth College, preached last evening at Appleton Chapel.

Dr. Tucker spoke upon the subject of repentance, illustrating his sermon by telling how John the Baptist and Jesus Christ called their hearers to repentance. He went on to show how difficult it is for all classes of men to really repent. Some cannot reach the individuality of their sin because they are a part of a great army which sweeps them on in its progress and restrains them from acting independently as they might if they were alone. Others fall into a kind of mental indifference from which they seem to be unable to rouse themselves; they can not throw aside their sins and give their souls a chance.

The greatest value of religion now-a-days is to create a state of mind in which repentance is possible; when it fails to do this it becomes worthless. The religion of today is not as effective as it should be. Men need some power which will show them how to repent and can help them to do it. The Kingdom of Heaven is always at hand to every one.
