There has been much discussion of
the after-effect of the Sunday visits,
and, following an extensive study of
Sunday's methods and their Immediate
and after-effects In Scranton, the Rev.
Asa J. Kerry, pastor of the Bethany

Spruce streets, has prepared the follow

How often we hear people say:
"I'm so sorry! If 1 had only known!
I can't forget my mistake," and
scores of other expressions of regret
because of their failures. We see
them going about with hanging heads,
frowning brows and sadness written
on their faces.

hope you nro not.
If a man's mind Is filled constantly
with thoughts of "what might have
been" there will be no room with him
for thoughts of "what Is to be."
Every man must build his future
on thoughts of It. No one should
waste his time living with regrets,
for, ns the poet has said:
"Time's the thing life's made of,"
And no matter how great may be
the regrets over our past we can live
worth-while '.lives only by keeping
ourselves strong and ambitious by em

through looking out for tomorrow.
Nothing has ever been gained bj
any man through living In the sad

therefore, greatly pleased to have the
opportunity of studlng them at first
hand while suppllng the First Presby
terian Church during the summer. The
following facts specially Impressed me:
"First. Billy Sunday had made It easy
to talk about religion. Months after the
campaign one could approach the ques
tion of personal religion, via the 'Billy
Sunday route.' with almost any one, and
almost an where' The dinner tables of
rich and poor alike, the stores and of
fices, the hotels and restaurants, tho
street cars and trains, the mines them
rclvcs, all seemed to offer open doors
Into the religious world. It was as eaty
to talk religion as to talk war, and even
the war itself could not force out the
"Second. Billy Sunday had electrified
tho churches and their members.
Churches that almost. If not quite, had
closed their doors previous summers,
were not only open, but well attended.
The prayer meetings were splendidly at
tended. The men's Bible classes were
particularly laro. At the First Church,
where previously there had been no sum
mer prajer meetings, probably the aver
age attendance was ICO, while the men's
Bible class, which had been very small,
had grown to a membership of more than
200. and the summer attendance ran from
70 to 00. The church congregations were
phenomenal. The spirit all through the
church wns most enthusiastic.
"Third. Billy Sunday had changed the
lives of multitudes of men. I saw men
of all sorts, from the superintendents of
mines to tho mine laborers, rich and poor,
educated and ignorant, young and old,
T,ho had been tru'v -'jorn again.' ?ome
of them had been notorious sinners, and
now are Jwt as notorious saints. The
Patr.gonlan train hitters were in the First
Church on two Sunday evenings and told
stories of changed lives that were stmplv
marvelous. But the work had touched
'Fourth. Billy Sunday had Insured
the continuation of the revival by teach
ins mun the possibility and the Joy of
personal woik. and by enrolling them in
Illblg classes and workers' bands. The
revival has been carried on in a manner
perfectly amazing by groups of 'trail
hitters' and others until the whole re.
glon around h.is bt-en affected for good
And the end L not yet. You ought to
hear these men when they come to Phila
delphia next month.
'Fifth.-The succoss of tho Billy Sun
day nmetink's vva. in riu small degree de
pendent upon the work done before ho
tame, especially the effect of the cot
tage prayer meetings held all over the
tity. That Is a word to the wise who
desire to have part In the Philadelphia
T.m lxyt"1 3m. Persnally convinced that
IllUy Sunday has been raised up by God
for this work, and that only Hods power
working through him can account for the
results. This U Uod's work, and It Is
marvelous in our eyes."

"Peace Is entirely out of the question
in the minds of the English people," de
clared Doctor Rees "All the discussions
of the probable end of the war through
peace agreements seem to have orig
inated in America. The people In Eng
land feel that there can be no end of the

volunteers to the front, and it Is not
thought that she Intends doing so foi

Head of the Eastern Peni
tentiary Tells How Con
victs Are Made "Fit" to
Face Life Again.
Warden Robert McKcnty, of the East
ern Penitentiary, Is generally becoming
known ns "The Prencher Warden," nnd
It will not be surprising If some of tho
colleges and universities award him tho
degree of doctor of divinity before many
more commencement seasons pass. If
they do, they will certainly be giving
tho honor to a man who has done much
for the cause of good and to one who has
done moic preaching during the last few
years than have more than 30 per cent,
of the ordained clergymen In Philadel
phia. Hardly a day passes that does not carry
to "Bob" McKcnty (Who has ever heard
him called Robert?) stacks of Invitations
to Hpoak at all kinds of religious meet
ings, and tho warden loves so much to
talk "Practical Christianity" that ho can
alwnys be counted on to ncccpt Invita
tions to speak, unless he has mado pre
vious engagements for like service. During
last -winter he gave almoBt 000 tnlks at re
ligious meetings, and he has made a fair
start this season by addressing one after
another In the same day during early
FOR "PRACTICAL CHRISTIANITY."
"Practical Christianity" that's the
thing that "Bob" harps on from morning
until night nnd sometimes far Into the
night, for many are the times when It
Is after midnight when he arrives home
from the outskirts of the city, where
he has been driving home some of his
"common sense" arguments In the hope
thnt thero may be sufficient aid to great
ly reduce his official family.
When ho beenme warden, six years
ngo, one of the first things SIcKcnty did
was to make friends with the prisoners
and to try to make men of them, so that
when they had finished their terms they
would not dart out the big Iron doors
like frightened wild animals, and, with
hanging heads nnd fear of the criticism
of their one-time friends, sock some den
in the Tenderloin or slum, where they
might forever hldo themselves from
tho?e they had known.
"Bob" wns a member of the city de
tective forco for 20 years, and Director
of Public Safety before he assumed his
duties within the stone walls, and he
tltclnred a day or two ngo that he knew
that the majority of the ox-convlcts
sought some hiding place In the slums,
with the result that most of them fell
back into tho company of other ex-con-vlcts
and tho kind of crowds that had
sent thtm "up" first, nnd every soon they
were back In the cells again.
Because of those observations. Warden
McKunty was n strong advocate of the
law permitting the parolo of prisoners,
which was adopted by the State Legis
lating In 191s, mnl, notwithstanding the
frequent criticisms thnt have been
heard against the system, the records in
the penitentiary ofilco show that It has
been n wonderful aid to those trying to
reform the convicts and to make real
men of them. But. would It have been
Mich a success without Warden McKcnty
to prennro tho men -for It? In answer
' this question, stop a moment nnd
r what he has to soy about the work,
.il then tho render may decide.
MADE CONVICTS FIT.
'The first thing to be done, as I saw
' " said the warden, "after I came up
re, in order to make the parole b-s-in
u success, was to start lo make the
ilsi,ners fit to be paroled. With the pos
ihle exception of the difficulties that
wonvlcts used to havo In obtaining
i'il, there was nothing so much against
'.' Ir reformation ns their Inability to do
y definite thing well. For this reusou
(turfed to work to see thnt every nun
given a chanco to learn some trade
it would make his future, when he
'i us, of service to himself and to the
"Not only have we established voca
tional schools, but wo teach the foreign
ers lo read and write the English lan
guage, and permit all who desire to
study and learn anything they may want
It Is even possible for them to become
electrical or civil engineers, for we have
correspondence courses In such practical
work, and the men are glad to take ad
vantage of tho opportunities.
"Now, besides fitting tho men for work
at some specific trade or profession, we
also do something elso for them. Wo
permit them to apply their trades during
their spare time nt making various arti
cles for sale, and theso they dispose of
for good prices. Their funds are depos
ited In one of tho largest savings banks
In Philadelphia, and when tho prisoners
leave most of them have a falr-slzcd roll
of bills to tnko with them.
PUTS HOPE INTO MEN.
"Both these things make them hold up
their heads nnd feel like men who can
look the world squarely In the face and
begin again, determined to accomplish
something because they do not have the
handicap of having no skill or ability for
any definite thing that will mnke them
self-supporting and able to support their
oft-times unfortunate families.
"Now, let us see what the parole sys
tem does for tho men who Rre fitted for
honest employment. The law icqttlrcs
thnt the men must havo employment
and must havo responsible persons
to .stand as their moral backers after they
have finished their minimum scntenco

stead of tho men going out like whipped
dogs nnd diving Into tho first den they
can find in tho Tenderloin, they inarch
out with their china In tho nlr and with
n look of hopefulness on their faces.
"They've got Jobs! They are probably
going to receive blggor envelopes for
their work than they have ever received
In their lives, and perhaps their first hon
est dollars nro before them. They havo
certain feelings of Independence and self
respect. And wo havo found that when
they leave under these circumstances
they seldom come back, and ns our re
ports show, they make good In their work
and become citizens of value in the
After this little talk Warden McKenty
proudly turned over the pages of the re
ports on paroled prisoners, and here Is
what wns found:
Since 1809, when the law went Into
effect, prisoners paroled, between 1000 nnd
1100; about 125 returned for breaking
parole rules; 12 returned and asked to
be taken back, because they felt the need
of more of the Influence they had had
whllo prisoners, and feared that they
might do something very wrong; 35 have
been recommitted to this prison or sent
to some other penal Institution for some
later crime, and nil others more than
000 of them have been reporting regu
larly, working and living respectable
KEEPS HIS EYE ON THEM.
Among them are many who have
Worked out their parole period, but the
warden keeps an eye on them, nnd knows
that they are doing well. Several of tho
men paroled are In business ono or two
of them well known here and are mak
ing profits of as much as '$1200 every
month, and the average earnings of the
men on parole 13 f0 a month. This Is be
lieved to be a fair wage when It Is con
sidered that most of them are working
In the country or small towns and cities.
Every one of the men who enme back
for tho protection of tho warden had
allowed "rum" to got the better of them,
and practicnlly every one who was
brought back for breaking parole rules
was found to have fallen from his
straight path because of drink, Warden
Directly or indirectly "Tho Preacher
Warden" declares, "rum" sends almost
every prisoner to the penltentlnry, and
he has turned the convicts against It
so much that more than E00 of thorn,
without his knowledge, signed a petition,
which Is to be presented to the State
Legislature tho coming winter, asking
that the sale of liquor be topped.
"Bob" is n firm believer in religious
freedom, nnd only a few months ago
Mnsses were first said within the prison
walls for the Catholic prisoners, nnd now-
each Sunday there are services con
ducted by Protestnnt clergymen and
Catholic priests, nnd the Jewish rabbis
also held services for tho Hebrew pris
oners during the New Year holidays Just
past. Any religion is good, so long as
it stands for the right, declares tho war
den, and it is the "practical Christianity"
that counts most.
HELPFULNESS IS BEST.
" 'Practical Christianity' means unself
ish helpfulness," says Warden McKen
ty, "And that is what Is needed most
among the church people to keep men
out of prison, nnd to make men out of
