A CITY COUNCIL.
To a member of a citr coun council
cil council is an honor not to be despised.
It is not altogether a matter of
business; but questions come be before
fore before these municipal bodies affect affecting

communities. Hence, in electing
aldermen, we should see to it that
they are men who will at least re
frain from breaking the ten com
mandments. Members of a city
council are held up before our
boys and young men as models;
they are called "city fathers;" and
it is highly important that they
should be men of good moral char character.

a mother to teach her boy that it is
wrong to swear, visit saloons, and
go fishing on Sunday, provided
that boy should be brought into
daily contact with a grave, digni dignified

things with impunity. Let us help
these Christian mothers to train
their boys for high and useful posi positions

Who knows but that some
mother's boy, now walking the.
streets of Ocala in short pants,
will some day be in charge of the
ship of state, or be called to fil!
some great metropolitan pulpit?
The hope of the country is in
the boys, and while they are young
and tender, let us set good exam examples

Col. J. J. Hickman of Missouri,
past right woi-thy grand temp'ar j
of the Independent Order of Good
Templars of the world, will lecture
in Witness hall this evening at
7:30 o'clock. Col. Hickman is an
exceedingly able and interesting
speaker and none who hear him
will have cause for regret. He is
well and favorably known to many
of our citizens and we bespeak for
him a bier house. Let everybody
come. Admission free.

of those who arc weak and foolish enough
to cherish it. In such a conception of

wero as much distinguished for their
wickedness as for their wisdom. Their
minds were luminous with kuowledgo
while their hearts wero flowing foun fountains

is as well informed in sonic departments
of learning as William E. Gladit vac,
but in character there is an immeasure immeasure-abla
abla immeasure-abla distance between them.
Wo all know that knowledge and
righteousness are not convertible terms.

It is willful, positive rebellion against
the Almighty. Sin means guilt, and

divine condemnation means wrath and
separation from God.

He needs a savior who has in himself
transforming and creating power. Ir

and breathed into him the breath of life.
Christ answers this need when he say.c,

declaration ha asserts his divinity or hi

Lijjjht and Salvation.
Now when Christ says, "I am tho
light of the world," he declares his ab absolute
solute absolute oneness with God. It is substac,
tially what he had previously said to
Philip, "He that hath seen mehathseei
the Father." Christ was God manifest;
in tiu! flesh. "The word was with God
and the word was God, and the won!
was made flesh and dwelt among us.;'
Though he has passed into the spirit
;vorld and is no longer uncernibie by
our mortal Reuses, he is still, the God
man, one in being and sympathy with
God and one in nature and sympathy
with man. In tho person and life of this
divine man is the light cf the world, and
nothing but personal contact with the
personal life of this divine Being can
emancipate man from sin and satanic
power and lift him into sympathy and
fellowship with God.
Salvation is to know God. It is not
to know something about him, but to
know him. I can learn something about
God from his creative works. "The
heavens declare his glory." But I can
know all that tho eartli and heavens
reveal of his wisdom and power without
knowing him. Man can know God only
through the mediation of the God man.
"No man knoweth tho Father but tho
Son and he to whom the Son will re reveal
veal reveal him." What men need most is tho
knowledge of God. This knowledge will
not only make them wise unto salvation
and fit them for 'heaven, but it will de develop
velop develop in them godlike virtues and pre prepare
pare prepare them to make the most of tho pres present
ent present life and the present world. This
knowledge can be gained only by per personal
sonal personal contact and intercourse with the
man Christ Jesus.
But what will yon do with civ: second
text: 'Ye are the light of the world."
The same being who says, "I .am the
light of tho world, declarer, that his
followers are the light vi the world.
Paul, in writing to Christians at Fhi Fhi-lippi,
lippi, Fhi-lippi, says, "In the midst of a- crooked
and perverse generation among whom
yo shine as lights in tho world." There
is no contradiction here. Both doc doctrines
trines doctrines are (rue. Christ is the light of
the world, and his pooplo are the light
of tho world.
The light of tho Christian is a light
derived from Christ. Christ, the sun of
righteousness, shines into him, and ho
shines upon the world. In other words,
Christ works through those whom ho
has enlightened and redeemed to bring
lost men to a saving knowledge of his
truth. Christians are witnesses for
Christ. They show tho world by their
own redeemed lives that Christ is a de deliverer
liverer deliverer from sin. They demonstrate by
their own conduct that a union with
him by faith transforms human nature,
changes the currents of its thoughts,
affections and aspirations and makes it
in every way richer, nobler and diviner.
They reveal Christ as Christ reveals
God. They reproduce his virtues. Men
take knowledge of them that they have
been with Jesus and learned of him.
They see the character of Christ in the
characters of his people. They are drawn
to Christ by tho attractive power of his
Having this light of life, Christians
are required by their divino Master to
let it shine before men. Br. Broadus
says that tho meaning of this is that wo.
must show our Christian virtues in the
presence of men. When wo are isolated
from tho world and its temptations, it is
comparatively easy for us to refrain
from sinning and to preserve a Christ Christlike
like Christlike temper. For this reason many peo people
ple people become "hermits. They desert the
ranks of men and hide themselves in
eaves and mount am fastnesses. These
are they who put their light under a
bushel. Christ gets no tmo ecrvico and
the world no real blessings from such
Christians. Put your light npen a can candlestick

But shining for God means more than
an exhibition of moral purity. It means
labor earnest, diligent, faithful labor
in teaching men Christian truth and
persuading them to submit to Christ
that they may know God and experience
the freedom and glory of his salvation.
It means the e.-:e of every available and

acquainted with tho gospol of Christ
and of urging men to accept tho mercy
and wisdom which it reveals.

I desire to give special emphasis to

This country is grappling with cer certain
tain certain great social and economic problems
with almost the energy of desperation.
I reiterate no pulpit platitude or pious
cant when I say that the only solvent of
these problems is the knowledge of God
in Jesus Christ. To know God is to love
him. To lovo him is to lovo all human humanity,
