PEN PICTURES OF PROML
The following was taken from
the Baptist Witness.
Chautauqua, N. Y., July 26.
DR. JOHN HENRY BARROWS.
Here is another well-known
name. At its mention the World's
Parliament of Religion immedi immediately
ately immediately is suggested, as he was its
president. Dr. Barrows has been
delivering a course of lectures here
on different phases of Christianity
He has dealt with such themes as,
'The effects of Christianity upon
the world,'' "The Universal Book,"
"The Christian Revelation of God
the Basis of a Universal Religion,"
"The Historical Character of Chris Christianity
tianity Christianity in its Relation to the Uni Universal
versal Universal Faith." ; There are others
of the same nature, all of ; which is
to form a course to be dcliveired in
Calcutta before many representa representatives
tives representatives of the religions of the East.
Dr. Barrows is a remarkable look looking
ing looking man. Over six feet in height,
he has the air of the tvniral Pres.
r i... n CLt -, : i 1
lorty-nvc ur, nity years 01a, Diue-
eyed, with high and broad forehead
ri is voice is deep-toned and power-
ful, naturally, but his intonations
create a monotony of utterance
j . .
J that becomes more or less painf ul.
His style is quite the opposite of
that of President Harper. It
abounds in glowing rhetoric which,
of course, takes up much valuable
space of his discourse. But he is
a great thinker nevertheless, and
has a comprehensive grasp of in-
I tellect unattained by many. And,
concerning his style we must re remember
member remember that he has spent his life
before popular audiences.
DR. WAYLAND HOYT
Is a name that is also national in
reputation, It has been fifteen
years since we heard him. He was
then in the ; prime of manhood,
though not so celebrated as now.
Then he preached the sermon be before
fore before the graduating class of that
thorough and efficient old schools
Wake Forest College. All through
the subsequent years his words of
counsel, delivered then, have been
with us'. Few men have ever at-
, tained such masterful power on
j the platform as he has. Nor has
the vigor of his youth departed.
Though now in his sixties, he is
still a master of assemblies. Dur During:
ing: During: the week he has delivered a
number of lectures here. They
have had to do with the inspiration,
of the scriptures. All-Chautauqua
has been profoundly impressed.
Bishop Vincent publicly pronoun pronounced
ced pronounced them unanswerable. It is well
known that T)r. Hoyt is the origi originator
nator originator of the chapel car service,
now so successfully operated by
our American Baptist Publication
Society. In 1892 he suggested the
idea to his, brother, Mr. Colgate
Hoyt, a director of the Northern
Pacific railroad. The latter was so
pleased with the idea that he at
once organized, in New York, the
Gospel Syndicate consisting of
himself and Messrs. John D.
Rockefeller, Chas. L. Colby, Jas.
B. Colgate and J. B. Trevor. The
Smith-Barney Company of Dayton,
O., built them a car at cost. The
work was then turned' over to the
Publication Society. This car, con containing
taining containing a missionary and family,
a new .town, where there is no
church, and services are regularly
held until an organization is effec effected.

is one of a life full of good deeds.
PROFESSOR HENRY COHN.
We may name here only a few
of the eminent men to be seen and
heard every day. But even the
meager list we present would be
imperfect if we omitted the name
of Prof. Henry Cohn. He is one
of the great teachers of a land of
teachers, r Prof. Cohn occupies the
chair of German language and lit literature
erature literature in the Northwestern Uni Uni-versityi
versityi Uni-versityi and the same position in
the Chautauqua College;; He is ;
not a producer of books, but of
men. Under his instruction have
sat many of the most eminent men
of our day. During an extended
observation jof teachers and v their
methods; we have seldom been im impressed
pressed impressed by their excellence as we
have by Prof. Cohn and his meth methods."
ods." methods." He fulfills, to the highest de degree,
gree, degree, the measure of that greatest
of teachers, John A. Broad us, who
made it his aim not to put into a
man, but to get out of; him. Prof.
Cohn does this pre-eminently. His
classes here are the largest, and
many old teachers enter them to
absorb his spirit and learn his
methods. He is enthusiasm itself.
And it is astonishing how much
German he can teach one in a few
weeks. At school we used to h ear
the phrase, "Poeta nascitur non
fit" (The poet is born, not made).
We have long been of the sam e
opinion in regard to teachers. And
when we see a really great one our
soul is filled with admiration. Prof.
Cohn was educated at Columbia
College and in Berlin, is a kindly
Christian gentleman and is a plat platform
form platform speaker, both in the German
and English languages of a great
merit. In the city of Chicago his
splendid abilities are recognized
by that most cultured of all people,
the Germans, and be is doing more
than any other American to bring
about that affinity between them
and Americans which must in the"
future be one of the prime safe safeguards
