Out in Sunday Sermon.
in the course of an able sermon on
the "Sourcos of Physical and Mental
HeaJth" at tho First Unitarian church
yesterday morning, the Rev. William II.
Fish, Jr..' took to task the Apierlcan
J newspaper aa being responsible In large
J measure for tho pessimism which pro-
Hj valla In tho land today. After asaerl-
Ins that the "one prominent feature of
our life that tho warmest friends of our
fl. , country, at homo and abroad, umini-
I mously cemdomn, Is tho American news-
' j paper," Mr. Fish quoted from an emi-
Hf J neni European visitor, who recently
Piling Up tho Agony1.
"All who love America must protest
against the.e degradations. There is
no excuse for the piling up of the agony,
Hf for the proclamation In huge and hld-
cous types of the most abominable
crimen, for a procession of bad men
and bad women on .the front pf the
stage, a9 though thero actors were of
all the most important, and as though
1 this rogue's march down the hill to per-
I dlllon were of much more interest to
H) the public than the march of intellect,
the . advancements of science, tho as-
l cents of religion and of truth."
j "The Indictment is severe," said the
! speaker, "but not too severe, so far aa
the average product of our dally press
Ht ; Js concerned. There are papers to whioh
Hj 1 it docs not apply, but their number is
I very small. And how can people who
1 -flnd their main intellectual pabulum In
thoPcr-Kansational columns be expected
to cherish any generous faith In human
nature or, any confident hope in God?
If we must buy objectionable papers on
account of the important news which
i' they contain, let us at least use the
I startling headlines as Indications in re-
1 gard to the columns to be most care-
Fiction Is Too Morbid.
' "A similar charge is justlty brought
.. against much of the fictitious literature
of the day," continued the speaker.
"Thli is the age of realism. It Is said,
J but why 19 It that so many clever novel-
ists confine their studies of real life to
the baser passions, the foibles and wcak
nesses of humanity, and leave almost
wholly out of sight the pure affection,
, the unselfish devotion, tho noble aspi-
ration, which are at least as much a
part of our nature aa the side which
Hj they' depict? By the very" truth that
thev present they pervert and distort
T tlic truth.
JTt may be that a useful lesson Is
I sometimes taught by such portrayals.
1 The terrible picture which Zola has
'' drawn In the 'Downfall can hardly fail
to repel and disgust those who become
I acquainted with it and to strengthen
j the love of peace in their hearts. But
' for the most part they who would: pro-
vide pure and wholesome nourishment
BM for their souls, they who would fos-
HV I ter a cheerful and hopeful disposition,
would do well to turn away from such
Hf N Verse Writers Aro Pessimists.
"There are poems, also, or produc
HM tions called by that namo. to which the
same rule ought to be applied, for
HL vritcrf of verse are sometimes pcssl-
H1 mjals. "Whenever we find a poem ap-
pealing to some sordid tendency, of
which we are more or Icsm clearly con
hcIous, expressing our own more gloomy
fears, echoing our own darker questlon
i ings, without leading to any solution,
i instead of reading It over and returning
it again and again, or treasuring it
fll up in the memory to be a messenger of
Satan to us at some moment when wo
R are most in need of a very different ln-
H' ; splratlou, we shall bo wise If we at once
turn to one of the great masters, who
owe their claim upon the world's rever
ence, not alone to their skill in making
verses, but also and still more to the
Hfi clearness of their spiritual insight, and
try tp put oursclvea under hla Inllu
once," Antidotes for Despondency.
The abovo remarks were a part of a
M rermon In which Sir. Fish nought to
HR show the effect which the mental attl-
lude of man has on his physical well
being. In beginning he said that one of
the best antidotes to the depression and
i discouragement which sometimes lills
fl ' earnest souls today is a study of tho
WV history of the past. In comparison with
H' f-he history of today, as showing tho
1 mighty moral progress of the race,

H' Turning from the larger Interests of
humanity to the Individual caused of
despondency, with which the daily life
Hi of man is beset, tho causes of this de-
H Hpondcucy and the practical remedy
, for its cure were pointed out. Slck-
ncss, he said, is ono of the most com
mon causes, and while the triumphs of
medical and surgical science of the day
H as agents of healing were pointed out,
I Rev. Mr. Fish said that the Idea that
there Is a close relation between mental
i and physical states la coming more and
more to be recognized, and physicians
realize more than any others that their
) efforts may be either reinforced or
counteracted by the patient's attitude
H . si or" receptivity or resistance toward othcr
streams of divine influence.
J May Be Carried Too Far.
"It is easy to carry the doctrine too
i far," said Mr. Fliih. "To assume, as
j some now do, that all diseases have their
' , J seat in the mind, and that every ill
i that flesh Is heir to may be cured by
H m mental treatment alone, seems lnconols-
1 J ' teiit with many of tho plainest facts.
. I But at least it Is reasonably certain
f '! that a sound state of Inward health and
I I , cheerfulness must be more favorable to
' the maintenance or restoration of out-
I i . ward health than the opposite mental
condition. Wo cannot suppress painful
feelings by merely commanding our
selves to do so. But we can withdraw
the attention from those objects or
thoughts which are naturally adapted to
excite them, and to llx It on something
of an entirely different character. Men
tal Buffering Is orten overcome in the
same way. When wo find ourselves tak
ing dark views of life and feeling that(
there is more evil than good in tho
world, Jt Is an indication that w have
been dwelling too exclusively on one
side of existence and that our thoughts
need to be turned In a different direc
tion." Chief Cause of Gloom.
"Failure to put Into practice that
which we believe in theory in regard to
the character and dealings of the Power
on which we all depend," said the
speaker, "Is the chief cause of somo Of
our dloeases and of all of our depend
ency and gloom. One who learns to
enter Into real communion with the
Holy Spirit and to receive its direct
wltneste in hi3 heart, gains a greater
blessing than can possibly come to him
in any other way; and. though he may
not thereby be delivered from all phys
ical suffering and pain, his joy and hope
in God will be so great that outward
things will no longer have complete do
minion over him; his soul will never i
be utterly cast down."
ItlCH MAN IS DOOMED.
Bible Docs Not -Even Invito Him to
At St. Mark's cathedral, Dean Eddy
yesterday delivered a strong sermon on
"The Follies and Miseries of the Wicked
Rich." basing his conclusions on the
Epistle of St. James, from tho first to
the sixth verses. He said that this
passage is unique In the whole of the
Bible, for -vhllo other passages exhort
sinners to repontenco, this Is tho only
Instance whore entire condemnation,
without hope, is given.
The abuse of wealth Is what condemns
tho rich man. Tt'ls keeping back the
poor and grinding his wealth out of
them. It Is his hoarding of that wealth
when he might 'make the world better
and hapjiler with it. For th-? man who
gains wealth unscrupuously rarely
spnds it as he should.
Women who come to church clad in
silks and satins, furs and plumes, and
leave the small bill at the dressmaker's
unpaid are among this class. That bill
may mean little to them, Dut It means
a great deal to the poor dressmaker.
People Who hoard wealth are tof bo
condemned. In Rome's prosperous days
wealth Was hoarded In the form of
clothing. Instead of money, as Is the
case today. A play was to be given and
a certain Roman was requested to lend
the actors some costumes. This ho did.
lending them 500 costumes out of C000
which he had stored In his hou.
It is against a man to die worth a
great deal of money. To die rich Is a
stain upon him. He should have used
that money while he lived for the bet
terment of the world, for In that way he
would have stored up that gold In
heaven, for he must go out of the world
as poor as the poor man. Neither takes
more than a coffin to the grave.
So the Bible does not exhort rich
men to repent. It condemns them. For
If they are using their wealth unscrup
ulously there is no repentence for them;
they can never get back. They are

HI Parkin Found With
Bullet in Heart,
Death of Wife and Baby
Rlado Life Not Worth
Alono in Desolato Homo, Ho Shoots
Himself When NoighboTS Aro '
Dlshoartened and discouraged by the
death of his wife and baby boy, Herbert
D. Parkin, a foundryman, 33 years of
ago, committed suicide at his home In
this city yesterday afternoon by shoot
ing hlniEKlf through the heart. The
shooting took place whllo most of tho
neighbors wero at church and tho body
was not discovered until late yesterday
afternoon. Parkin resided at 60G West
North Templo street. He leaves a son
seven years old.
Parkin was married about ten years
ago. About eighteen months ago his
wife died, leaving two small children
and an infant. The latter wafl given to
a family In this city to rear.
Tried to Drown Sorrow.
The deatli of his wife caused Parkin
to become despondent and shortly af
terwards ho began drinking quite heav
ily. For six months he tried to drown
his sorrows in the flowing bowl, but at
the end of that time he stopped as sud
denly as he began.
"I have my chlldron to live for," he
told a neighbor, "and must bear up
for their sake." From that time on he
ceased drinking, until last April, when
his oldest son died.
This last affliction was moro than
Parkin could bear, and within a week
he resumed the pace he had taken upon
the death of his wife. During the past
few months he drank heavily. He lost
his position, became Indifferent, and his
one ambition seemed to be to drink
himself to death.
"Wanted to Bo a Man.
About a month ago Parkin again tried
to brace up. He told his neighbors that
he was going to leave whisky alone and
''be a man'' for the sake of his seven-year-old
But things did not go as smoothly as
ho anticipated. The men who formerly
employed him would not trust him be
cause of his recent waywardness. He
was unable to obtain work and for tho
past ten days he and his little child had
scarcely enough to eat. Kind neighbors
cared for the boy and assisted Parkin
in his efforts to brace up. Only yester
day morning, when he complained of
being ill, a friend brought his breakfast
to him In bed. This was about 11
o'clock. The woman made him com
fortable and told him she would call
and see him after church. Then she
started away. This waa the last time
Parkin was seen alive.
"Is the Sun. Shining1?"
As the woman was leaving, Parkin
called her back. "Is the sun shining this
morning?" he asked. The woman In
formed him that It was and he mur
mured. "That's good."
Three hours later she returned and
found him cold In death. The police
were notified and Sergeant John Hempel
and Officer Leaker went down to Inves
tigate. The neighbors believed he had
died of heart failure.
Upon Investigating, SergcTant Hempel
discovered a 3S-callbcr revolver among
the bed clothing. A purple stain on his
undershirt told the rest. The bullet had
evidently pierced his heart.
The Coroner was notified, but an in
quest was not deemed necessary. The
body was removed to Evans's undertak
ing estnbllshmentt and the remains will
probably be burled In this city tomor
Parkin has no relatives In this coun
try, aside from his own child, so far as
can be learned. His parents reside in
England. The orphaned boy will prob
ably be turned over to the county.
