CHICAGO has a floating hospital which is

ONE cause of the alarming increase of

For I say unto you, That except your rrht
eousnens shall ceed the righteousness of the
scribes and Pharisees, je shall in no cone enter
into the kingdom of heavenYIATTHEW V: 20.
The example thus set by the leaders of re
ligions thought cannot fail to have a perni
cious influence. If there are hypocrites in
the pulpit, there must inevitably be hypocri
sy in the pews. It is absurd to expect great
er excellence in the parishoner than in the
pastor. Heedless themselves of the precepts
of the Master they profess to serve, how can
the clergy and the professed followers of
Christ expect to exert an influence for good
upon the outside world? What effect can
their denunciations of hypocrisy have when
they so conspicuously practice it? How can
they blame dissemblance in others, in the
face of their own hypocritical cant? If min
isters of the gospel are so notorious for
their hypocrisy, how can they censure their
parishoners for stealing the livery of heaven
to serve the devil in? These are questions
pertinent to the times. The hypocrisy of
many church members is so notorious that
people cannot be blamed for doubting their
sincerity in all things, for they remember
that "whosoever shall keep the whole law,
and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of
This is but one of a hundred texts of
scripture which show the abhorrence felt by
the Master for the sin of hypocrisy. His
utterances teem with cautions to his dis
ciples to beware of hypocaisy and all man
ner of nncleanness, and warnings of divine
wrath as the penalty for its indulgence.
Christ had pity for the woman taken in
adultery and forgave the thief upon the
cross, but he had no word of pity, no for
giveness, no mercy for the hypocrite. Meek
and merciful though he was, showering
blessings upon mankind rather than curse),
his denunciations of hypocrisy and hypo
crites were sometimes fearful. Ho regarded
the sin as an insult to Godan unpardon
able offense meriting the most condign punr
ishrnentperpetual exclusion from the
Notwithstanding the fact that Jesus looked
with such loathing upon hypocrisy,
there is no sin so universal and so promi
nent in the church to-day. From the priest
who expounds tbe word from the pulpit.down
to the poorest and the youngest member of
the church to whom be preaches, this quali
ty is dominant- all-pervading. If not by
precept at least by example the practice of
hypocrisy is taught from the pulpitis
made the rudiment of religious training, the
ambition of religious life and excellence.
How often do we hear ministers of the gos
pel decry from the pulpit that greed of
worldly gain of which they are in private
life the most noteworthy examples! How
often do they grow eloquent in denunciation
of lust, of intemperance, of fondness for
worldly honor and display, when all who
listen to them, even to the child just devel
oping into a reasoning human being, know
that their lives are marred by these vices,
and that they are utter strangers to the most
loveable of the Christian graces! How often
do they dwell upon the beauties of divine
compassion and extol the excellence of a re
ligion of love while they inculcate by their
example a religion of hate! Here is a min
ister who professes to despise worldly honor
and profit, and to hunger and thirst after
righteousness onlyto labor in season and
out of season for tbe glory of God. Yst he
takes care to find a church that is fashion
able and wealthy, well able to pay a good
round salary and maintain him in luxury.
He carefully avoids touching upon all sub
jects that would be apt to offend the fas
tidious of his congregation or too closely
approach their vices. He preaches "popular
sermons," which owe their popularity to the
fact that they denounce vulgar offenses and
gild over fashionable vices. Thus does he
give the lie to his professions. Here
is another who professes to believe
that a great majority of mankind are doomed,
unless they repent, to spend an eternity in a
place of horrible torment, and yet he avoids
warning his hearers of their danger lest he
should offend them or, if he refers to it in
the pulpit, he carefully avoids the subject in
his daily walk and conversation. Examples
of a similar nature might be multiplied in
"STYLE" IX THE CHURCHES.
There is a sermon in the story of the
assistant postmaster at La Porte, Ind., who
has just been arrested for robbing the mails.
He was a member of the Episcopal church
in that place, a close attendant upon its or
dinances, a member of the choir, and a
prominent teacher in the Sunday school.
He had no bad habitsneither smoked nor
drankand had, to all appearance, lived a
bla teless life. But a few days ago it was
discovered that for a long time past he has
been in the habit of robbing the mails for
the purpose of gratifying his fondness for
dress and keeping up a style equal to that of
hia associates in the church and Sunday
school. He confessed his crime when de
tected, professed the keenest repentance,
and now occupies a felon's cell.
His story is on of many that might be
toldhis fall and its cause are almost too
common to afford topic for more than a
passing remark. One of the worst vices fos
tered by the churches of to-day is a fondness
for dress and outward display. Among
women this is more particularly conspicu
ous. A survey of the attendants upon divine
worship upon any Sabbath day reveals the
extent to which dress in place of Deity is
worshiped. The female portion of the
congregation is bedecked with the costliest of
millinery, the finest of silks, the most gor
geous of wrappings, the most costly of
jawelry. Each appears to vie with
the others in her effort at
displayto. excel in expensiveness of ap-
parel. A woman with a plain bonnet or an
unassuming dress bee me the cyuosure of

It is not to b3 won-lared
at that under
these circumstance people are often led to
an inordinate fondness for dress, and fre
qnently spend much more than their means
will allow in order to keep up style at church
and avoid invidious attention from their
neighbors. Statistics show that thousands
of girls tra -e their downfall to this cause.
They shrink from contact with those who
are better dressed than they, and that they
may not be placed at a disad antage they
too often sell their virtue to purchase dress.
Men who would otherwise have lived a
blameless life, and filled an honorable posi
tion in tbe business world, are not infre
quently forced into debt, and sometimes
driven to dishonesty, to procure the means
with which to gratify the vanity of their
wives and daughters, and enable them
to keep up style in the dry goods exhibitions

and dishonor inevitably follow the attempt

expects no assistance from the pulpit, but
nevertheless it must speak out, and enter a

of shame, and drives men to bankruptcy
and a felon's ceil. It is no small evil. It is
increasing as the years go by, and contributes
more than any other single cause to the

A HEA1JLKSS HOKKOR.
The Mutilated Body of a Girl found on
the llivrr Jiank.
Lowell has a first-class horror. Yesterday
afternoon the frightfully mutilated body ot
a white woman or a girl was found on the
river bank, at the foot of O'Fallon avenue, a
couple of hundred yards east of where the
Hanson bone yard was. The spot is one
seldom visited by any one, and a body might
lie there a month without being discovered.
This one had evidently been there for several
dayspossibly a week, as it was
very much decomposed. It was naked,
and there is no probability that
it will ever be identified, for the head was
missing. Deceased was, according to the
judgment of several who saw the remains, a
young girl, but even this could not be posi
tively determined. The trunk and limbs were
intact, save that a terrible slash, evidently
made with a razor or yery sharp knife had
opened the abdomen all the way across.
Just where the neck joined the head another
slash on the right side bad made a very deep
cut, running upward toward the front, so as
to cut off some fleshy part of the chin. This
was evident from the smooth edge on the
flesh there. The balance of the neck was
all ragged, and seemed to indicate that the
head had been torn off, or eaten off by hogs,
after the deep cut had been made on tue
neck. There were no other evidences of
violence. If it be true that the head was torn
by hogs, there should be a skull remaining,
but there is none. Tae body is not
the refuse of a dissecting room, and there is
no room for any other supposition than that
a most atrocious murder has been commit
ted, the head and clothes being removed to
prevent identification. No female is missing
in that part of town, and the probability is
THE MUEDEBED GIRIi
was taken from the city up there, or was
caught in that neighborhood, outraged and
murdered. Tbe police are at a loss lor some
clue to work upon, and the worse reflection
is, that the impossibility of identification
carries with it the impossibility of a convic
tion even should the right party be caught.
It is simply a sickening mystery, and the
exhibition of the frightlul remains at the
morgue can do nothing to solve it.
A Mysterious Delirium.
"William Elliott, a boy of eleven years,
whose parents reside on Fourth street, be
tween Vliet and Cnerry streets, has been con
fined to his bed for a week, owing to a de
lirium of unusual character. During his
school vacation he expressed a wish to his
father to earn some money with which to
buy a printing press to use when not at
school. The father, in order to gratify the
young son's desires, sought and found a
place where he could make a little money.
The situation was at a biewery, and stamp
ing corks was the labor he per
formed. He worked parts of two
days, and becoming quite seriously
ill, was told by his employer to go home and
rest, and return when he felt better. He
obeyed but trom the time he arrived home
up to last accounts he suffered continual de
lirium. He has a wonderful gift of speech,
and in his illness is continually talking a
manner. Recently the boy said to his
mother: "Mamma, I am going to heaven as
Elijah wentm the chariot of fire. God
has a seat for me next to him it is No. 32,
and he has reserved the one next to me for
you so don't hold me." This is the man
ner in which he talks at frequent intervals.
A neighbor's daughter had been quite
seriously ill, and the boy's mother requested
her daughter to go and see how the sick
girl was getting along. this the young
invalid replied: "Don't go the little girl is
dead. I know she is. I saw her go to
heaven myself. Don't send sister over."
Hi3 talk seemed strange, as he had not been
out of the house for over a week. The
mother sent her daughter to make the in
quiry. She returned and reported the little
girl dead, as their sick boy had stated.
The case is one to thoroughly puzzle the
doctors and attendants.

The undersigned answer to the order to show
cause made on the application of A. R. Keiter,
Esq., clerk of district conrt, second distric,
hereinbefore presents a true and correct state
ment of all amounts received by him as clerk
of common pleas and said district court, not
heretofore paid to the parties lawfully entitled
thereto. That the said Keifer at the time of
the application of tbe said order well knew
that the undersigned had made application to
the judges of said court for authority to pay
said Keiter as clerk, all the said moneys re
maining in his hands as late clerk ot saiu
court. That the order to show cause was wh il
ly unnecessary, and the application of said
Keifer was instigated by personal hostility .0
tbe undersigned. That the undersigned has
fully paid to said Keifer all the moneys in his
hands as aforesaid, in pursuance of said orders,
made upon his own application as aforesaid.
That said Keifer absolutely refused and ill
refuses to give the undersigned duplicate re-
ce'pts on any of said pavmentR, and he has
th-refore bt-en compelled, and will be com
pelled to lave the re idue of said receipts in
the poBResaiun ofVaid Keifer, without having
the protection of which he is entitled to the
proper duplicate receipts. He therrfore prays
i hat the court order said Keifer to execute the
proper duplicate receipt to the undo signed for
the several bums to him paid as aforesaid.
The undersigned herewith produces the re
c-ipts of the said Keiftr lor the si id several
amounts, except the receipts that are on file and
in custody of Baid Keifer. The undersigned
calls the attention of the court to the wording
of the receipts so ghen by said Kiefer and
herewith turned therein falsely stating "Kept
by him, said Armstrong until he was compelled
to pay over to the present clerk A. B. Keiler by
an order of court," when said Keifer well
knew the same was paid over hy
an ordn' -pronifed by the itndersiqnet}. and not bii
mini Keifer. Wherefore the undersigned pray*
said order may be discharged.
The undersignel represents by mistake he
pud said Keifer the amount of ^0.11 on ac
count of amount paid into court by the
Saint Paul Water companv, over and above the
amount in his hands which the said Keifer re
fuses to return. He therefore pravs that said
Keifer may be ordered to ref and the same.

A BUFFALa SOCIE TV SCANDAL.
The Collector of the Port Charged With
Sedurinrj a Yoin 1 Z,iid'/ Pr iba'tllity
That He Will le If* moved Front. Office.
[New York Times.]
For a week or two past certain circles of
Buffalo society have ben a good deal
agitated over a scandal in high life which
has not hitherto been mentioned in the local
press, but which cannot much longer be kept
from the public, since it has been brought
to the attention of the authorities at Wash
ington, and is likely to result in a change
in the office of collector of customs
at this port. The following are the facts:
A young daughter of an old resident and
well-known business man of this c.ty, resid
ing 0-1 Delaware street, was lately discovered
to be in an abnormal condition for an un
married lady, and, on being called to account
by her parents, charged Mr. John Tyler, the
collector of Buffalo, with being the author
of her ruin. Mr. Tyler is a married man*
somewhat famous for his gallantry, and was
a retired officer of the regular army on half
pay when he was appointed collector under
Gen. Grant's administration. He lost an
arm in the war of the rebellion, and has been
a satisfactory and rather popular collector.
When confronted with this charge he put in
a general denial to the ears of his friends
and miscellaneous inquirers, but is said to
have owned up to the strong pressure of the
girl's father, and admitted the truth ot the
accusation. However that they may be, the
facts were communicated to President
Hayes by some friend of the family, said to
l)b S. S. Guthrie, an old acquaintance of the
President, formerly of Ohio, but now a resi
dent of Buffalo, and an agent of the treasury
department was forthwith sent hei to in
vestigate them. He is reported to have con
vinced himself of the truth, and to have
informed Mr. Tyler of tho necessity of his
immediately "rising to explain." Tyler
asked for time till to-morrow to make his
explanation or denial, and the story of both
sides will then bo reported to Washington.
The girl's statement is generally credited
here by those who have become cognizant ot
the scandal, and it is believed that Air. Tyler
will be soon removed and a new collector ap
pointed in his place. This has enlisted tue
interest of politicians in the scandal, and
.speculation is now rife as to who will be
Tyler's successor. Some of the friends of
Tyler sneer at the idea of his removal on
such a charge, and say that if Presides
Hayes undertakes to remove all the govern
ment employes whose morals do not coma
up to the Sunday school standard, he will re
quire an additional clerical force to make out
commissions for the new appointees. There
are said to be, however, some aggravating
circumstances connected with tne charge
against the Buffalo collector. The giil is
motherless, and has been considered rata
weak-minded. Sne is now at a lying in re
treat near New York.
