EXCERPTS FROM SERMONS IN ST. LOUIS' SUNDAY PULPITS.
. "The Bible condemns falsehood of any sort. It Is not so condemned to-Iay by
the public, but It !s condoned. ccu-?ci. Competition, custom, is hald to Justify
It. To many people a lie is not a lie unless the Il.tr lie caught. 1-olks seem to have
no regard whatever for truth if sometning can lie- galnc-d Ii falsehood." The- Rev-
ennd Cecil V. Cook.
y "Those whose minds and hearts are not In subjee-tlsn to the word of Chrlrt
are always seeking to substitute some other .authority In the place of Christ's
4 authority. Such often substitute their own reason as betas of the best adthor-
s ity, Lut lcek at the false religions, philosophies and sciences framed by human
e reason." The Reverend Harris IL Gregs-
"Life is a matter of stress and strain. Our vocabulary Is one of ierspIratIon.
Strive, g'-t. try. labor, all of these are the words of the hour. The strenuous life
Is th- shibboleth of these in high places, and restlessness is the disease or panacea
of tne age." The Reverend .1. N. Crutcher.
"There is "a dead line In divine things. There Is nothing this side of eternal
doom as awful as the final departure of the Holy Ghost from the souL Conllnuil
resistance to his love -will finally change it to liate." The Reverend Herbert C.

"Christ Is the head of the body, the

Christ Lhr.st is Sn-re said to be the nead
of his churcn. 'hrtst claimed that God was
the authoru beiuni the Hebrew Scriptures
and behind the temple, with its priesthood

his day. Chrii turther claimed tnat not
only did the fccriptures foretell of his com

was instituted an an illustration cl enrols
atoning sicni'fe and pnustnood, ana henco
was a proytieiic lie and witness to him
'that bun was in Chiist, reconciling tne
world unto Himself.'
'Christ claimed that, because Israel re
jected him, Guil would not be the authority
behind tnem in such sin. but would de
stroy the ttinple itself, tnough Israel would

of the temple, een after Cnrist had I!n
ibhed the work of which the temple i-pokc.
To reject Christ, ot whom the temple
tpoke, and yet to enng to the temple, in
dicated the apostasy of Israel from God.
If the temple Etanas, tnen God is the au
thority behind the leaders of the temple,
who rejected Christ. But if the temple is
destroyed, according to the words of enrist,
then God is with Christ, and against tne
leaders of the temple, although God insti
tuted the temple.
"Christ, as tne Lord of glory, risen from
the dead, has sent a message of God's graca
and salvation and resurrection to the whols
world. He is tho authority of the message
and the mtssencers. ills own appointed i
messengers prove tneir appointment by
Christ by faithfully delivering Christ's
message. But those who go to the world
in the name of Christ, with the message
changed, substituting another for the mes
sage of Christ, prove that Christ has not
cent them, no matter what claims to au
thority they may make for themselves.
"Christ is the original and final author
ity of his own message. Christ never abro
gated his authority in favor of any one.
But Christ at once abrogates the authority
lie delegates to his messengers the mo
ment they become disloyal to him by
changing his message, and, like Satan, sub
stituting a lie in the place of the truth of
"Christ's message to the world Is, 'Veiily.
Verily, I say unto you. He that bellevetb on
me hath everlasting life.' To alter this by
addlng to it or subtracting from It Indi
cates a changed authority and not the au
thority of Christ. The authority of any
church or churches Is not of God. except
God's way and truth and life be theirs. To
contradict Christ implies that the one who
does so assumes to be above Christ. Until
&uch one lives better than Christ lived and
leaches better than Christ taught and does
more than Christ did. ho must not expect
to take away disciples from Christ. Christ
aowhere promised that during his absence
from the earth false teachers would not
peek to deceive men In the very name of
Christ. And it has been so.

I QUE TO CHRIST S TEACHING,
The lieverend O. W. Kiiip's Por-
iiion at First Presbyterian
Church on Fillins Life Fuii.
The Reverend George W. King. ass!iant
pastor of the First Presbyterian Church,
pn-ai-hed yesterday morning on the topic:
"Filling Life Full." taking as a basin the
words of the Christ as recorded in 31atthe-.v
v. 17 "I am not come to destroy, but to
fulnll." Mr. King said:
"The Jews thoi'ght that Jesus 3 a rev
olutionist: that he had come to destroy
their teaching. They clung to this idea, al
thuugh h- declared emphatically that Ills
teaching was not destructive, but that h
came to fulfill, a? this famous verse says.
their law and prophet?. The Jews thought
Jesus came to destroy; and many people to
day think that the religious life is a life f
giving up things. The religious ;rson for
sakes his passions denies? his tastes, morti
fies his body and then is holy. There is a
sense in which Jesus doe n-qulre- renuncia
tion on the p-trt of his followers, but t-.e
larger truth of the text Is that he o m-s
not to ii-Mroy. but to till full. And certainly

SENATOR SPOONER HAS
RECORD AS A MEDIATORS
V.'rshington. July 5. Senator Spoon-r has
been rcest co-plcuous as a mediator be-,.
tween all kinds of contending factions In
th crvit- duri-ir th- e-inn tne .lol
Vhenever the difference of opinion became
so strained and Involved that a settlement
looked far awny. ha alwnyp cam- to the
front with a substitute or an amendment in
th- nature of a cmipromls-. In near! all
of thfJe. e,. a Snooner substitute meant
,,, ,, -, .!,, e , n...- . .h
For instance, th- Sro-ner substitute
which sinallr pasi-d into canal Icrislatiin
threw upon thc President th?- burden of de
termining the tltl- of the Panama ccm
panj . A Spooner substitute would also have
constituted Culwn legislation had It paised.
and this. too. wouW have left to the Presi
dent the tak of beginning and terminating
at his will reller for Cuba. There was also
a Spooner amendment In the Philippine
government bill which lert certain points
to the settlement or the President- Th
vv isconsin Senatcr was always present, and i
attempted to smoclh the difficulties when
ever the hand-to-hand fighting became too
fl-rce en the fiovr. It was he who came
between Senators Bailey nnd Beveridge.
and it was not long; after this exciting Inci
dent that Mr. Spooner was accosted by
a fellow-Senator thu:
"I say. Spooner. why d'd not you put In
"What good would a substitute do In a
esse like thatT said the Senator.
"Oh, you might have left It to the Presi
dent. They say he Is great In deciding
matters of that kind."
A cane made from a board upon which

an interesting souvenir which Colonel
Crook, the dlsburs'ng officer of the White
House, has obtained from the wreck of the
repairs new going on at the historic man
sion. Colonel Crook was in the Cabinet
le-om of the White House when President
Urcoln made bis first address to his Min
isters, nnd has also heard many other Im
portant speeches delivered by succeeding
Presidents. He was very anxious to get i
souvenir of this room and decided that a
ctne made rrom one of the hardwood
beards of tho floor would be the best to
hund down to posterity.
Even tn the hottest of weather there are
crowd- or visiters nt the White House, os
tensibly to watch the workmen tearing out
the Interior, but really to carry away pieces
of boards, laths and other parts of the in
terior which have been thrown out Into ths
driveway It ls a peculiar ract that tha
wrought iron nails round sticking, out of
pieces or wood here and there are most
sought after. These are of unusual shape
and are carried away by sightseers by tha

"Do you know." said a well known negro f
Republican from Alabama, "that Senator Jr
Fairbanks of Indiana is working with con- , S
slderable success among the negro Repub- f
llcans in the South who are likely lo t
delegates to the next Republican convensjf
The man who made this remark has been
a delegate to every Republican National
Convention since the Grant convantlco.
and he ras wide Influence with the politi
cians cf his section.
"Yes." he said. "Senator Fairbanks Is do
ing the rubber-shoe act in ills uwn behalf,
and I understand be has enlisted the serv
ices of some of the best rounders-up of i
Southern delegates in the market. Jim Hill
of Mississippi. Deas of South Carolina. BUI
Pledger of Georgia and many ot the iearo
leaders or the South, who have been turned
out or office, have formed an anti-Roosevelt
combination, and many of them are
announcing themselves for Fairbanks.
When the campaign becomes hot. some of
them may m-It away from. Fairbanks like

It appears that his district Includes- a una.

the leading candidate. Mr. Flemin-- saya
