H False Prophets.
"It is the habit of pessimistic prophets
to prerfvt that our covernmont will soon
come to an end, and that it Is already
in the throes of dissolution, and the dls

ment. t.i good ssmjc and patriotism of
the American p-ople. You and your
father hav now for a century and a
ouarter oxpcrUnced and enjoyed the
ble sings of a strong and free govorn
mont. And If you compare the results
of ou,- political system with thoso of
other civilised nations. I do not think
that our republic, with all its drawbacks
and shortcoming, will suffer In the com
parison. You can say: 'America, with all
thv faults. I Jovt. thee still.
"Cold. Indeed.' and torpid, obtuse and
apathetic Is the oul that Is not aroused
to warmtlt, ami enthusiasm In contem
plating the history of the I'nlted States,
which ha been tho homo of llbTty and
the haven of rest to downtrodden mil
lions in other lands
"But tho survlxal of the American re
public must rest on a more stable foun
dation than tho patriotism of our cltl
zens, tho gonitis of our statesmen and
the wisdom of our laws. It must hav a
stroncer basis' than fleets and dread
noughts and standlnc armlos: for 'the
race Is not to the swift, nor tho battle to
the ctrong ' Our enduring stability ran
be secured only under the abiding pro
tection of the Lord of Hosts
God Gives Victory.
"Tho history of the Jowish people
from the days of Abraham to their dis
persion among tho Goutllos gives a
forcible Illustration of this tnith: that
thote people are victorious In the end
who have tho Ood of battles on their
side, and that He Is with thcin who have
unfailing confidence In Hla protection.
" 'Righteousness. says the nook of
Proverbs, 'oxaltcth a nation, but sin is
a reproach to the people.' If our repub
lic Ik to bo perpetuated. If It is to bo
handed down unimpaired to future gen
erations, it muft resr on th eternal prin
ciples of Juhtlco, truth and righteousness;
and downright honesty in our dealings
with othr nations: It must he sustained
by the devout recognition of an over
ruling power, who governs nil things by
His wisdom, whoso superintending prov
idence watches over tho affairs of na
tions as well ns of men. without whom
not oven a bird can fall to tho ground.
Fathers Had Faith.
"One of tho leaders of the convention
that assembled in Philadelphia to frame
the Constitution of tho United States
mado tho following sago romark to his
colleagues: 'Wo huvc spent many days
and weeks In our dellberatonn. and wo
have accompllshod llttlo 'or nothing. V'o
have been groping In the dark because
we have not sought light from the Fa
ther of Lights to lllumlnn our under
standing. I hav lived for many years
and the older I grow the more I am con
vinced that a supremo power interpopea
In the affairs of mankind. For If a spar
row cannot fall to the ground without
His knowledge, how can an empire rise
without Ills co-oporaton. And wo also
know from thn sacred volume that 'un
less the Lord build tho house, he labor
eth in vain- who bulldcth.'
Example of France.
"And happily for the nation this hum
ble recognition of a superintending pow
er has been upheld from the dawn of
tho Republic to our own time. What
a striking contrast wo present in this re
spect to our sister republic across tho
Atlantic, which onco bore the proud title
of 'oldo.xt daughter of the church.' The
leaders of the French ropubllc arc so far
carried away by tho tide of unbelief that
they studiously eliminate tho nam of
God from tholr official utterances. How
different Ib tho conduct of our leaders
and statesmen! They have all paid hom
age to tho normal governor of the world.
All the presidents of tho United States,
from George Washington to William
Howard Taft. have Invariably invoked
tho aid of our heavenly Father In their
Inaugural proclamations. It Is also the
edifying custom of our chief magistrate
to Invito his fellow-citizens lo nssemblc
in their respect Iva places of worship on
the laiit, Thursday , of November, to nffr
thanksgiving to the giver of all gifts
for tho blessing vouchsafed to the na
tion. Both houses of congress are dally
opened with prayer. And all Important
civic and political conventions are in
nugauralod by an appeal to tho throne bf
grace. God's supremacy is also recog
nized by the observance of the Christian
Sabbath throughout the land.
Church and State.
"It is true, indeed that wo have no
official union or Church and State in this
country. But wo arc not to Infer from
this fact that there is any antagonism
between 'the civil and religious authori
ties, nor docs it Imply any indlffcreneo
to religious principles. Far from It.
Church and State move in parallel lines.
The State throws over the Church the
mantle of its projection, without inter
fering with tho God-glvon rights of
conscience; and the Church on her part
renders valuable aid to the State in up
holding tho civil laws by religious and
"No man should be a. drono in tho so
cinl beehive. Xo man should be an in
different Spectator of tho political nnd
economical questions which confront him.
Indlffcreneo nnd apathy In civic and po
litical life arc as hurtful to the State as
indifference in religion Is hurtful to the
Christian Commonwealth. Our Lord says
.to the bishop of Laodicoa: 'I would that
thou wcrt hot or cold; but because thou
art lukewarm, and art neither cold nor
hot, I will begin to vomit thec out of
Duty of Citizens.
"A sincere man who In attacking
Christian faith honestly believes that he
i right. Is, loss blameworthy than the
torpid, lukewarm Christian who never
takos an interest in the religion of Christ.
In like manner, a citizen, who earnestly
espouses a faulty political principle. Is
loss dangerous to the Slate than the su
pine citizen who never takes an Interest
in tho "political welfare of his country.
"It Is my profound conviction that if
over the Republic is doomed to decay, if
the future historian shall ever record the
decline and fall of the American Repub
lic, its downfall will be due. not to a
hostile irivafilgtij but to the indifference,
lethargy ami political apostacy of her
"And if all citizens nre bound to take
an Interest In public affairs, that duty
especially devolves on thoso who aro en
dowed with superior tntelligonce and edu
cation and who ought to hu tho leaders
and exemplars of tho 'people cuidlng

Makes No Choice.
"Therft arc three oiiEpicuous citizens

Performances every evening, with
matinees on Wednesday and Sat
urday. YOU' havo heard, of course, of tho
Bryan smile, but it is dull when
compared to the Nat Wills grin. The
only grin in its class is tho Jirin of tho
barefooted boy with two tipper front
teeth gone. Such a grin is an a.sot
worth much tnouey in vaudovillo and
it is an iiitcrcstinc speculation to con
jecture what percentage of tho Wills
success is duo to that. grin. Mr. Wills
began grinning yesterday before de
lighted audiences at the Orpheum,
whero he is the headliner, and ho will
keop it up all week.
Most funny men of vaudeville have
poor voices, but this is another respect
in which "The Merry Tramp" excels.
It is not tho most beautiful voice in
the world, but it is clear and strong
and when its posseffor sings a pnrod"
of some popular song you do not havo
to ask your neighbor the name of the
original nong. And. by tho way, the
Wills parodies arc 'til ucw and elVoc
tivn. A word as to the Wills joke?. Those,
too, are refreshing. His concluding
story is especially good and he' tolls
it with great eloycrness.
Next to Wills probably the most pop
ular act last -night wan that of "Tho
Three Collegians," although a suffragette
playletto ran It a close race for second
place. Tho collegians s arc three young
men who present a musical act with
pleasing aria lions. The scene Is tho
room of the boys at collecc. It Is deco
rated with scores of" pennants and plc
turos and funny signs. Amid these sur
roundings the college boys disport them
selves gleefully, playing the piano, sing
ing and dancing.
"The Suffragette" Is presented by
Franklyn Ardoll & Company. As there
ate only two ehnr.i'-tcr.s in the play the
Ardell company is necessarily limited.
It is probably called a. company on tho
theory that two nre company nnd throo
a croud. The company Is Marie Walters
who plays tho role of the woman candi
date for mayor.. The woman candidate Is
Iho wife of tho mere man candidate. The
fun evolved from this , situation Is due?
as much to Mr. Artie! I as to the linos".
Ills .speech to the men denouncing his
wife's candidacy is a gem.
Williams and .Warner an- musical mer
rymakers who evoke music from the od
dest kinds of Instruments. Including one
that is called the "slnpnphone."
' The Blue Grass Boys" iire comedians
who do a blackface act of unusual merit.
They met with much favor last night
and are deserving entalneis.
Annie Kent. "The Little Jester." ap
peared in a singing and dancing sketch.
The final number Is a bicycle act that
contains many amazing stunts.
In "The Thief," this week's offering at
(he Colonial theater, Calhrlno Countlss
and her capable company appear to havo
achieved a degree of success but little
removed from the maximum to which a
ttock company, with its necessary limita
tions, ran hope to attain. Tho p'reacnta
tlon is thorough, strong and pleasing.
With due regard to the lesser members
of the cast, it must be admitted that the.
consummate art of Miss Countlss so
towers through the three tense acts of
tho play as to accentuate whatever de
fects the presentation as a whole con
tains. "The Thief" is a strong play, though
built on conventional dramatic lines. It
depends upon tho constant tenseness of
its episodes for dramntie effect, nnd It
succeeds. It Is the story of a woman who
so loves her husband and is so fearful
lest she lose his love to some more at
tractive woman that she steals large
sums of monev from her friend and bene
factor In order to dress well, that she
may appear lovely In her husband's eyes.
The Vlicviiablo exposure draws nigh, fur
nishing the striking scenes of the play.
Meanwhile the son of her benefactor, a
youth of nineteen yean?. In whose carcor
oil the hopes and ambitions of the father
are wrapped, has fallen madly In lovo
with her. and she. In innocent coquetry,
has fostered his attentions. Detectives
come to the house to trace th thefts.
Suspicion points to the boy. The mo
ment of exposure arrives, and in her ter
ror the woman, who but an hour earlier
has Inughcd to scorn the nrdent infatua
tion of her youthful admirer, asks him
to shield her. lie does this by confessing
to tho robbery.
In the second act the husband finds
reason to suspect his wife of the theft.
He forces a confession from her. This
Is the great scene of tho play. Miss
Countlss mounts to a high plane of cmo
tlonal acting as she fights to justiry ner
crime' by h"er overpowering; love. Sho suc
ceeds, for the moment and then loses
her vantage ground before the onslaught
of Jealousy In her husband's mind, tic
Is convinced the boy Is her lover and
she Is forced to another great battle of
pleading defens-o. It Is a hard, uphill
fight, and one that offers one long, tense
dramatic episode filled with strong jn(i
