Aberaman. DEATH IN AMERICAN ews was re- ceived on Sunday week of the death of Mr Benjamin Evans, son of Mr Evan Evans, Abergwawr House, Aber- aman. The deceased was but 28 years of age, and was married to a young lady named Tegwedd Jones, who had been in the employ of Mr Treharne, -Architect, Aberaman." He set out in company with a Mend named Griffith Davies to Cleveland Ohio, on April 22nd last, both their wives remaining in this country at the time, but eventually set sail and joined their husbands at Cleveland, at the end of July last. They had only arrived there three weeks, however, during a fortnight of which Mr and Mrs Evans had put up at a new home of their own, when Mr Evans was suddenly taken ill with cholera on a Monday. On Wednesday, his condition be- came so precarious that they were obliged to remove him to a hospital, where he died on the following day. He was buried at the public cemetery on the Saturday in the same week. The news came as a shock to the family and to the deceased's large circle of acquaintances, for he had been most popular in his locality, and was a faithful member of Libanus C.M. Church. We extend our deepest sympathy to the rela- tives in their sad bereavement. BETHANY.—On Sunday afternoon Pro- fessor Joseph Jones, of Brecon College pre- ached from the words:—"Love not the world neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof, but he that doeth the will of God. abideth for ever." 1 John, ii, 15,16,17. He remark- ed that the deepest feeling of the soul had ever been a sense of need. Humanity had been divided by St. John into two great sec- tions in this instance, viz.—those belonging to the darkness, who sought self-satisfaction as the highest motive in life, and those who lived in the light,seeking communion with God as their guide and companion through life. St. John was a coiner of terms and phrases peculiar to himself, and to any young man who wished to become a good theologian he (the preacher) would advise the thorough study of these terms in the first place. One of these peculiar words occurred in the passage of the text, viz. world." What could John have meant by the term world? Evidently he did not mean the world of Nature, or the world of civilisation and commerce. He was prob- ably referring to the world in which god-less men lived, and from which God and his glory were excluded. Both the love of God and the love of the world were mutually exclusive, for they could not tolerate one another in the same soul. There was t o such thing as twilight in the moral realm, and the fault with religious people now- adays was that they tried to serve two masters, Land belong to heaven and th world.
