THE HARVEST FIELD. IT INSPIRES DR.

Our ~,Vashington Full)it. ']'he sermon preached in Washington last Sumla,V, after most peol)le have had "a good, long breath of the country, if they do not actually live there, will re- ,rive many pleasant memories, while it deals with great religious truths.

"Well, I don't be- lieve in infant baptism." "What do you believe? .... Well, I don't believe in the perseverance of the saints." "Well, now tell me what you do believe." "Well, 1 don't believe in the eternal punishment of the wicked.~'' So their religion is a row of ciphers.
