Michigan

By Rev. S. N. Griffith

Several events combined to make that meeting a memorable occasion, and will be remembered for years thereafter. On Saturday morning the pastor of the Presbyterian Church in Kalamazoo, Rev. Mr. Hoyt, familiarly known as Priest Hoyt, preached a sermon on the world, the flesh and the devil. He announced the heads of his discourse as follows: First, I shall pass over the world; secondly, I shall touch lightly on the flesh ; and thirdly, I shall hasten on to the devil. This division, although given in all seriousness, was too much for the risibilities of a group of Methodist ministers, and a spontaneous and irrepressible burst of laughter followed. The same day, or perhaps the day after, a strange character appeared on the ground clad in an unusual garb, having long white locks and a flowing white beard, a face thin and pale, and the fire of an unusual intellectual energy flashed from his eyes; he attracted the attention of all.
