REV. LYMAN ABBOTT.
A Brief Account of Beecher's Suc-
cessor in the Plymouth Pulpit-
His Active Career.
Rev. Lyman Abbott was born in
Roxbury, Mass., in Dec. 1835. He
was graduated from the University
of the City of New York in 1853,
studied law, and in 1856 formed a
partnership with two brothers and
practiced a short time in New York
city. Becoming convinced that he
was better qualified for the pulpit
than for the bar, he studied theology
and entered the ministry in 186o.
He was in charge of a Congregational
church in Terra Haute, Ind., until
1863, when he was chosen secretary
of the "American Union Commis-
sion.'' For a brief period he was
pastor of the New England church
in New York city. Resigning in
1869 he devoted himself entirely to
literature. He was joint author of
two novels and for several years he
edited the "Literary Record'' of
Harper's magazine. He also con-
ducted the ''Illustrated Christian
Weekly.'' This last position he
resigned to take charge of the
"Christian Union," an independent
weekly, and in the editorship of
which he became associated with
Henry Ward Beecher. At the time
of the latter's death Mr. Abbott was
assistant pastor of Plymouth church,
Brooklyn, and a few months after-
wards, he was chosen Mr. Beecher's
successor. This position he still
holds. Mr. Abbott is the author of
several books, including the follow-
ing: "Jesus of Nazareth,' "Old
Testament Shadows of New Testa-
ment Truths," "Illustrated Com-
mentary on the New Testament,'
"A Layman's Story," and "The
Life of Henry Ward Beecher."
Mr. Abbott is a brother of Prof.
Nathan Abbott, Tappan professor
of law in the U. of M. last year.
Four of Yale's crack athletics have
given notice that they will not be
seen in collegegames again. Swayne,
the champion short-distant runner,
is going to Germany to study medi-
cine; Allen, another sprinter, has
engaged in business in New York;
Wade, the bicycle rider, has rheu-
matism, and has been ordered to
stop racing, and Stillman, the cham-
pion shot-putter, has decided not to
return to college.
