A Portion of Worthy Master Lang'i
Addrcui Hefor the State Orange.
To tho Members of Texas State Grange:
Deeply interested as I know you are in
everything which his relation to the
noble department of human labor in
which you are engaged I again bring
to your attention in a special report a
subject to which I haye before invited
your considt-ration and from which we
have anticipated would 11 jw many ad
vantages ta the cause of agriculture in
this State. I allude to the A. & M
College of Bryan. It is a matter of
profoundest regret that this institution
has nut met the fond hopes of those
who looked for it tosccomplish a great
work for the agriculture of lexaa by
graduating from its hells young men
thoroughly trained in tho science and
practice of agriculture who could go
forth year after year as missionaries of
agnculture science bearing its light
and prepared to instruct the farmera in
the communities among whom they
might reside and thus become multi-
plyirg centers of business throughout
ibis gre.it State. I his has not been
realized. And here the que.;
tion naturally arises. What is the
cause of this failure? Why these
frustrated hopes? An answer it
seems to me is easily given to these
questions drawn from the facts so pat
ent in the history giving to it us char
acter and shaping its destiny. It is
true a very competent professor was
chosen to fill the chair of Agriculture
and I propose to do that gentleman
the justice to say that I believe he was
enthusiastically alive to the cause of
agriculture and agricultural science.
and that it was his cherished purpose
to make his department a blessing and
a continued help to the farmers of the
State; and I am well satisfied that in
the position in which he found himself
placed be felt cramped and hampered.
and bis department ignored and driv
en to the background before the glit
ter of brass buttons the constant drill
ing required by the military feature of
the couege and the especial fostering
extended to the classical department.
It is very evident from the curriculum
of study adopted by the college if
such a strange array of studies as is
seen in the catalogue can be called a
ttTrir'Jj!VP..b.ut from that curriculum
11 la niSt CieSfiy luicmuiu tum . n u
the studied purpose to exclude as much
as possible all agricultural features and
make the institution differ as little as
possible from the old literary colleges
established all over the lmd. In sub-
stantiation of this statement 1 have
only to refer you to the figures report-
ed by the late president at the recent
meeting of the directors giving the
number of students in the different de
partments of etudy. Of the 130 stu
dents 04 are reported as pursuing the
study of Latin and many of these
put into that study who had never
given it any previous attention and
who proposed to spend but one year in
the college. In the department of science
eighteen were studying chemistry
eight geology and three were studying
agriculture nothing of practical agn
culture has ever been attempted in
the institution. The instruction which
classes have received who were pur
suing the study as I have learned from
the professor has been by lectures
recitations from text books and some
observations on processes of tillage
pursued by the Farm Superintendent
but which process s were conducted in
no scientific manner nor intended to
illustrate any scientific principle. But
if this is all that has been attempted in
the past the piesent character of the
college is still less encouraging to us
as agriculturists. There is at this
time not eyen a prolesaor of agricul
ture the little class of three who
were studying the subj :ct had been
disbanded and not a single student is
now pursuing the subject and the
Agricultural College presents the
strange anomaly of no professor of ag
riculture no student pursuing the
study of agriculture or any branch of
sciences with the especial design of
having a beanng upon the tillage of
the soil or a knowledge of the growth
and culture of plants and the rearing
of crops. Nothing is there as part
and parcel of a real living active
working agricultural college such as
we all wanted to see such as the peo-
ple of Tcxaa demanded such as the
law of Congress designed when the
liberal bounty was given to the States to
establish schools of learning especially
irt.-nded for the "industrial classes"
With these facts before us it seems to
me an imperatives duty the perform-
ance of which we owe to the people of
the Stats to raiss ouc voices in loud
protestation against this wretched mis-
management of this institution this
willful perversion from the original
objects for which it waa designed
this prostitution of funds intended to
be used for the establishment of insti-
tutions of learning differing in all their
conceptions and all (heir modes of
operations from ordinary colleges and
for the education and benefit of special
classes of individuals designated ia
the original act of donation as the "in-
dustrial classes" and in the place of
these building up a college where the
old curriculum of Latin and Grvek has
maintained its old supremacy and six
professors have been mostly occupied
in teaching language in its various
phases of ancient and modern classes
grammar logic etc and but one pro-
fessor employed in giving instruction
io these sciences which can contribute
direct assistance to the improvement
of agriculture. And duty requires us
to go a step further than the utterance
of a mere protestation against these
wanton abuses It requires ns to de-
mand of the Legislature of the State
aa entire change in the organixation
and working of the college that it
may go forward in its intended and
blessed work of usefulness and of help
to the "industrial classes" We have
a right to make this demand. We
are the undisputed heirs apparent to
the noble legacy given by Congress for
the purpose of industrial education
and it becomes ns to speak ont Like
men and with emphasis claiming ia
behalf of the members of the "indus-
trial classes" that the agricultural
and Mechanical College shall be what
it wis designed to be a nursery of
pvc;?:cftt. Fri?D?ic knowledge f-r

hosts of other schools where the old
threadbare curriculum of Litin and
Greek is still predominant and if gen-
tlemen desire their sons to be educa
ted in the line of those schools
let them send them where they can re-

college is for an entirely different pur-
pose. It is to afford aid to the work-
ing men and women in their various
pursuits and departments of labor. It
is to bring the light of sciecce and sliL-d
it in all its vastly increased and in-
creasing effulgence upon the fields of
the farmer and into the workshops of
the artisan and mechanic; so that un

SERMON BY THE RKV. IKVINU X J'EARI.Efl OF
He took Peter and J tmcs and John and wnt
np Into a mountain to pray; ami aa Ilu prayed
tne raanlon or uia countenance was aitor. a ana
Hi raiment waa white and y listen ng. Luke ix
From the mount of transfiguration
come some of the most precious trutb3
and practical lesson9 of the Christian
system. This subline ecene throws
light upon the doctrine ot the recogni-
tion of friends in the life to come.
"And behold there talked with Ilini
two men Moses and Eiiu? who appear
ed in elorv." While Christ and the
three deciples are on this mountain
there appear among them these two
Visitors from the unseen world. Moses
the great lawgiver had been gone fif
teen hundred years and nine centuries
had rolled away since the voice of Julias
the prophet had been heard by the
children of Abraham. Though so long
absent from earth the three disciples
are able to recognize the one as Moses
the other as Elias. Notwithttandicg
they '"appeared in glory" 'ihey are
identified as the two men who once
stood foremost in the Hebrew nation.
The saints of all ages "shall appear in
glory" in robes outshining the sun in
its noonday splendor but that does not
imply such a change that friend cannot
recognize friend. If Moses and Elias
could be recognized after so long an
absence from this world may you not
recogniz2 that loved one when you en-
ter that life to come?
This transaction teaches U3 that
Christ not Moses is now to be heard.
"And then came a voice ont of the
clouds saying This is My beloved S n ;
hear IIim;and when the voice was
passed Jesus was found alone." The
Hebrew people had heretofore heard
Moses. lie was their lawgiver. The
Jew who wished to know the will of
God concerning; him went to Moses for
instruction. This was proper. But a
new dispensation is now to be inaugu-
rated and another lawgiver announced
to the world. The voice from the un-
tsf.fr'o-ifs.iwy.jnQt "ThlB.is. Elias hear
uiui uut tuia ia .di.obi'0 ut'ai aitu
but these two characters are removed
from view and as Jesus remains alone
in supernatural splendor the heavens
break silence with the utterance "This
is My beloved Son; hear Ilim."
Notwithstanding this plain statement
it is not uncommon to find religious
teachers still calling upon the world to
hear Moses instead of hearing Christ.
Those setking the terms of salvation
to-day are told to read the Old Testa
ment. I would in no sense depreciate
that portion of God's word. It. is yal
uable for its history for its types for
its delineation of human character and
for its practical lessons. But it is not
that part of revealed truth which tells
you and me in this age of the world
what we must do to be saved. Christ
not Moses now announces the terms
of pardon. In the last chapter of the
last book of the Old Testament is this
statement: "Remember ye the law of
Moses My servant which I command-
ed unto him in II ore b for all Israel."
It was the law of Moses not the law
of Christ. It was for all Israel not for
all the world. The Nw Testament
contains not the law of Moses but the
law of Christ It is not for all Israel
only but reads "Go ye unto all the
world and preach the gospel to every
Travelers down the St Croix river
as they reach the line between the
United States and Canada find a mon-
ument upon one side of which are the
words "The United States" and
upon the other side the inscription
"The Dominion of Canada." While
they read "United States' they know
that they 'are under the laws of this
country bet after they have passed
along until thry read "The Dominion
of Canada" they know that they are
then under another form of govern-
ment. Upon th) line between the
Old and New Testament towers as a
monument the croea upon which the
Messiah died. Upon one side of that
monument is the word ' Moses;" upon
the other side the word "Christ. " For
centuries the nations coming down the
stream of time read "Mcses" Then
they were under the law of Moses
But by and by lha law between the
two grtat dispensations is crossed and
now we read the word "Christ."
Erroneous is the teaching that would
hurl back the development of the flow
of salvation until the world shall read
"Moses" sgain. Such teaching is
eighteen hundred and
yeart behind the times
inquiring sinner to the
S:kd not the
ment but to the New.
Fiom this incident we learn thit
some are very selfish in religious mat-
ters " Peter said unto Jesus Master
it is good for us to be hers and let m
make three tabernacles one for Thee
one for Moses and one for Elias" Let
ns put np three tents and we six can

Away with the idea of a three-tent
We learn from this incident that
some people talk very crazy on the sub
ject of religion. "Let us make three
tabercacUa one for Thte one for
M scs and one f r Ellis not knowing
what he said." In religious matters
how much thtre is o it ii "not know
ing what be etid " There is more
downright ncnten?e talked regarding
religion than concerning any other
theme. l-m will observe this in our
Sunday school literature. Sjme little
boy or girl is portrayed as an ap;e);
never ciiscbeyeii parrntf; never to'.d a
lie; neviT did any'.hii-g wrong. If w
read such a stt ry in the N; York
Lnhji'r we say it is a lie nud hurl
uaititm i8 at a B ?nner who will per
sist i-i publishing? fiction. AVhca the
8'iuie narrative appears in a Sunday
school book we sav "Well i". may be
a lie but it is a pious lie anyway and
let it go."
This tendency is seen in our talk of
special providence. A child is taken
very fick and the father it stead of
employing a physic an secures the
services of a quick. Tim treatment is
opposi d fo all medicil science. Th
child die. The mioii-ter standing
over the little c;fh - sny "A myste
rious proviaenca ha'a done thi." It
ia n lie; a quack tilth done this.
No other public leacher i permitted
to say so many manifestly absurd things
unchallenged as the preacher. When
nonsense finds its way in the editorial
column into our courts on the plat
form it niHcts with exposure. When
known absurdities come from the sa
cred deck decorum forbids a reply.
The congregation say "Oa that is re-
ligion; let it go." By a tat it under

no uncommon thing to see professed
Christians taking the banner of the
err si in a revival and crying 'Halle
lejb!" "Amen!" rise higher and
higher emotionally until they leave
behind this prac-ical world. They lose
sight of duties appertaining to every
day life. They are too high up to give
much attention to such matters as tell
ing the truth keeping their temper
restraining tho tongue from slander
and paying their debts. They have
become too religions to give attention
to these things. But tb 8 class of per
sons soon reach an altitude where the
atmosphere is too thin for them to
liye and they die.
It is not the emotional but the prac-
tical part of religion that is most diffi
cult to observe. It is easier to sbout in
a revival than to go home and put up a
ttove and nt the pipe without at least
thinking swear. It is related of a dea
con in one of the New England States
that he would in prayer meeting pro
nounce the words "blessed Jcsu " in a
tone so pathetic that it moved the
congregation to tears. That same man
has recently been arrested for stealing
sheep. Ic is one. thing to say "blessed
Jesus" ou Sunday and another thing to
let the sheep alone on Monday. - It is
one thing t be religious on the mount
of transfiguration and another thing
not to deny our Lord in the world be
