Religious Items

A press dispatch from Cincinnati says tha an address to the people of the United States advocating a national religious jubilee, preceded by a year of prayer, is being sent out, and that it is signed by Rev. Join Henry Barrows, president of Oberlin College Bishop William C. Doane, of Albany; Rev George C. Lorimer, of Boston; Rev. Washington Gladden, of Columbus; Rev. Charles F. Thwing, of Cleveland; Rev. Theodore Cuyler, of New York; Bishop Boyd Vincent, of Cincinnati; Bishop C. C. McCabe, of Fort Worth; Rev. William R. Nicholson, of Philadelphia; Bishop Edward G. Andrews, of New York, and many other distinguished clergymen.

In the department "Hints and Clews," the Universalist Leader says: "Why not preach a sermon on 'the next thing to be done,' and why not show that men know what next they are to do by doing now what they have to do? Does not that seem to be the law of finding out? ... Why be so full of worry about what is to be done? Why not heed the Master's word who sees that we always lack one thing, and, in quick obedience, go to the one thing that is near at hand, that which is a part of our entrusted care, whether it be to sweep a room, tend a loom, work at an anvil, or set down the words that tell the thought that burns within us?"
