gregation of tho Gates of Hopo Is small, but n
very wealthy one. l)r. laubonhnus's sormon
yotterdav was n poliolorly discussion of tho
mission of tho pulpit Dr. Taubonhaus spoko
briefly ns follows:
The pulpit Is no modern Instltntlont its existence dates
back to the morning of our history Our ancestors had
already a pulpit when they had no better home than
the rherrjeaa desert Mount Blnal was that pulpit, Ihs
short and mont comprehensive ecrmon ot which win
ever hold the htghrat rank In the history ot civilisation
The preaching which had began there wns prosperously
continued In Jerusalem, the oradle of divine and soul
stirring eloquence, brilliant aa the star, fragrant aa the
flower. Invigorating aa fresh water, and refreshing as
pure air. rrom Jerusalem the golden wave of genulno
preaching turned to Babylon, and indeed, we owe a
great debt to that pnlpll for the preservation of Judaism.
To tho Babylonian rublt Dr. Taubonhaus
ascribed Ibq kindling of that unparnllolod
faith In God which fanaticism, tyranny, and
twrseoutton could not extinguish, it was tho
ploodlng oico ot truo rollglon.
Tor JudAtsm la no blind belief Though It la no re
ligion of reason. It cannot be denied that It Is a reason
able religion There Is such harmony and congrnlty
between Its fnndsmental teachings and reason that it Is
owing to this circumstance that some people sre wont
toeari "The Jewish religion lathe religion ot reason."
The more we reflect upon and contemplate the essen
tial pert of oar religion, the simpler land more accept
able It appears. As the chldrsn become more at
taohed to parenta the longer they alar with them, so
Jndalsm becomes the more enleared to ua the more we
examine and search Into It Its principal teachings
seem then no longer to come from without but tubs
tho whisper of onr own heart the native languageof
our own eouL Belief then Is no longer the result or
training but the beaming of conviction The aim of
the pnlplt la also to spur aud stimulate religious practice.
In interpreting tho mission ot tho pulpit, Dr,
The preacher must be very errnpuloui and wide

Business upon tho Stock Exchanco during;
Iho past wook has boon practically at a stand
still. This was due to soveral causos. the prin
cipal onos holns that tho professional element
has consldorod thut a roactlon was duo aitor a
continuous rlsodnrlnc July, whllon Rood many
traders and intorcsts thnt helpod to mulio tho
market havo rotlrod temporarily on account of
tho wenthor. The fact that Autrustls a critical
month for tho crops has also unquestionably
hud somotlilnK to do with the smaller vol u mo
of tradloK. llesldcs, a Rood many operators
Wish to be cortaln that tho promlso of larjto
crops Is going to bo fulllllod beforo extending
thoir UroB. Tho Importnnt featuro has boon
tho continuous strength of tho market In Iho
face of dulncss and of modorato realizing both
for local and foreign accounts.
Thoro lias been no special chnnno In tlio cen
oral business situation. Naturally tho crop re
ports nro not its uniformly favornblo ns thoy
havo been, but ns yet tho reports ofdamaso
bero nnd thoro have contained nothing at all
nlnrmlna. l)ostdos,tho streot lsvorystronclyof
opinion that such roports nro oxucitoratcd as
much ns posslblo in tbo intorosts of specula
tors who aro bulling tho wheat and other cereal
markets. Distressing rooorts of tho agricul
tural conditions in western Europo havo
holpod both the grain nnd stock markets,
l'rosont indications nro ot a good foreign do
mund for tlio surpluu of our wheat and com
crops. 1'orhnps tbo bost Indication of
UiIh is found la tlio Increasing demand
for transatlantic chartors. Tlio prlco of ocean
froighta has advanced materially, and tho most
consorvatho ship brokers nro tuklng overy
charter in eipht. The prospective movement
of coroals is also hailnq some effect upon tho
managorsot tho Truntt lines, who aro nowei
presslngthomsolMw as coiilldontotn restora
tion of rates. Tho Granger rato situation
shows no Improvement yet, but the further
ovldenco of ruin furnlshul by tho (i, JJ, aud
Uuincy statement to-duy ought Boon, wo think,
to havo somo effect upon tho znanagors of thut
group of roads.
Tho trade reports nro of tbo samo encourag

In 0 number of Btuplo linos, notably dry coeds
and boots and shoos, thero nro unexpected
signs of an oarly revival ot actlt lty. From tbo
iron trade, also, further encouraging advicos
aro rocoivod. Tho volumo of business is not
largo and prices aro gradually hardonlcg. Tbe
monoy market does not relloct us jot any in
creasing demand for capital, although tho bank
loans Increased during tho week about $2,250,
000. Thoro Is a llttlo bettor supply of commer
cial pupor. but buyers nro cautious, nnd cny
woll only for the very best names. Tho sterling
oxchnngo markot hns yicldod gradually
throughout tho wook, and tho next ovent In It
will probably bo tho Importation ot forolgn
gold. Itnilroad earnings aro bettor than could
reasonably bo oxpoetud. considering the rock
loisnossnnd lnck ol business morality shown
by an influential portion ot tho railroad mon-
Ot to-day's mnrkot there is llttlo to bo sold,
oxcopt that tho dulncss nnd some efforts to do
press prices simply demonstrated tbo strongth
ot its undartono. The woebly statement of
n vera cos of tbo Associated JJanlcs showed no
Important change outside of tho expansion of
loans referred to and tho resulting increase in
tho deposits. As tho supply ot lawful monoy
remained unchanged tho surplus Is a llttlo
smallor than last wook, but Is still sufficiently
large for all posslblo requirements. Foreign
doulors woro modorato buyors both In tho Lou
don markot and (horo. and this oxprosalon of
