The Reverend Doctor A. H. Campbell
preached yesterday morning; at the Wag

"Christ and Publicity." After reading
Phllipplans 1. 13-18. he said, in part:
"The coming- of such an intense spirit
as Paul into the city has stirred up both
friends and enemies of Christ to such a
decree that Christ Is talked about and con
sidered in moro bomes and halls and

even though part of the publicity his
Master is receiving is through attacks
made on Paul.
"Here arc two lines of thought. The
one Is that publicity ts a creat advantage

noble .-pirit is far more concerned for the
advancement of the good cau! than he Is
for securing to himself a Urge credit In
that w ork.

thus is temporarily forwarded. The spec

"Since publicity for Christ helps to make

ARE EVERYWHERE APPARENT
A'o Place Where lie Does Xot Enter
In to Jlenl anil 1o Save
The Reverend Frank G. Tyrrell preached
yesterday morning at the Mount Cabanne
Christian Church on "A Savior From
Sin." His text was Matthew. 1. a:
"And thou shalt call his name Jesus; for
it Is he that thall save his people from
their sins." He said In part:
"To be saved In any respect calls for
thanksgivings and hallelujahs. Men have
been saved from drowning, from burning,
from shipwreck, from contaslon, from dis
ease, from disgrace, from bankruptcy,
from death. Again and again a con
demned man has been saved from the
gallows by a reprieve brought Just as the
black cap was being adjusted. Heroic
men In tne Cre-fighting crews of the city
have saved the lives of multitudes from
awful holocause. But it Is not sentimental
exaggeration to place salvation from sin
high above all tluse-
"The world is Indebted to its great men;
to Its discoverers, invemors, scientists,
authors, artists, preachers, philanthro
pists. We welcome Gallileo, Columbus,
Kant. Newton, Milton. Washington. Lu
ther. Wesley, and we gratefully place
upon their brows the laurel of earthly Im
mortality. Tbey have all served us glo
riously. There have been great advances
In medicine and surgery.
"We own an incalculable dt-bt to the
men who take away our slckncs3 and
pain. But when all our fellow-men luve
wrought out their service, there remains
a raging fire In the soul, a destroying
poison in the blood, a biting asp at the
vitals sin. And it Is to remove sin. Its
guilt and power, that Jesus Christ comes.
Now. If the world welcomes Its Inventors
and philanthropists, will It not also wel
come Its Savior?
"No such stupendous programme was
ever successfully undertaken by any oth
er. Jesus Christ delivers 'he race from
sin. He elennses the heart. 'Out of the
heart are the Issues of life.' As a man
thlnketh in his heart, so Is he.' If re
formers would only begin with the ter
ritory under their own hats, and clear
that of briars and thorns, their social
ministries would be far more MicccssfuL
The soul of reform is the reform of the
eouL' Desire roots in the heart. Make
desire good, and you purse conduct of all
"No other force has such sway over the
heart as the gospel. Jesus ls the true
emancipator, becaus he sets the soul free.
He is the true reformer because he
cleanses tho moral Interior. He makes
the tree good and Its fruit must be good.
"This Savior works upon renewed and
redeemed men. He does not leave his
followers alone, to be engulfvd again by
the floods ot carnality. Every saved one
is set to worK to save otners. Tne cnurcn
does not need any longer to ask: 'What
shall I do to be saved?" but rather 'What
have I been saved for?" This ls the very
proof and test of the genuineness of your
salvation to what extent are you Inter
ested in others? The religion of Jesus has
done nothing for me until it compels me
to do something for you.
"Jesus Is savirg the world by his con
tinuous Incarnation. 'He N in society
leavening It with his teachings and lift
ing It by his sprit. Old forms, old laws,
old customs are passng away. Old cruel
ties of superstition are doomed. Old dog
mas are becoming rubbish. The new wine
Is bursting the old creeds.
"Jesus did not confine his ministry to
the synagogue when on earth; no more
docs he to-day. He moves among men.
He Is found on 'change, at the city hall.
In the factory, on the street and even In
Jails and hospitals, bending tenderly over
the guilty and the suffering- to speak tho
forgiving, healing word. And the world
rolls out of darkness Into light."
WITH CHRIST'S COMING
LAW GAVE WAY TO GRACE.
Jeans Set Up Xo Standard as Condi

erend 3lr. Ilonilir.
The Reverend Stanley Humby preached
yesterday mornins at the Union Congrega
tional Church on II Corinthians. III. 6, the
subject of his sermon being: "Letters and
Spirit." He said, in part:
"The study of misquoted and mteapplled
texts ls a very interesting- one. Among
other things, it reveals tho astounding
and far-reaching- ignorance of tha Word
of God prevalent among even those pro
fessedly Christian. Such Ignorance is to
be deeply deplored.
The text chosen for our consideration,
perhaps, more than any other, may be
placed In this category. We hear it quoted
repeatedly and continually as if It meant
that the statements of Holy Writ, when
received by common men. In their simple
and apparent meaning, were both danger
ous and destructive. But such is far from
being tne thought of the apostle.
'Two things would have zaved us from
any such misinterpretation of tli Divine
viord. First, a rhtht understanding of the
character .if God. and. Mcoodly. an ln
ti Hik'ent study or Scripture Itself.
"All t.-at we know nf God tells us that
bis dtliKht Is not t.i darken euunsel with
nrd-. lut to Nh.-d light upon the problems
:iwt pii. round us and the pathway that
e-oi.rrcTi; us. He love to manifo-:. not to
nitii. u was fruin him that pro
ceeded the word that was with him In tne
beginning, and whlrh bex-ame flesh and
taliernaeled among us to declare unto us
the- Father's leive and make known to us
the Father's heart.
"Ill the' lianOs of many, the Bible has de
generated from the text-book of nur faith
Into a book nf texts, from being the warp
an I wf of God's r. velatkm to man 'o
somethlrc upon which we may hang the
fabrics of our own Imaginations.
"From a -ireful reading of the context
of the wonls under ronsidcratton. It ls el
dint beyond question that the apostle ls
contrasting, not the letter of Scripture
with the spirit of It but the ministry of
the law with that of the gofspeL The giv
ing of the law was with glory, accom
tmnled by displaes of divine majesty.
When Mosrs deended from the mount of
vision his face shone, so that the children
of Israel could not ste-adfastlv look upon
It for the glory thereof. But the glory
was a fading one. therefore. Menes cov
rel him with a eil. the purpose of which
win not merely to hide the reflection of the
divine splendor, but to hide from Israel
the fact that the Klory of the law was
transient, a glory th it was to pai away.
"The cross of Christ ushered In a new
era. The ministration of the law has leen
suceeisUd and superseded by the mlnITy
of ffraft' We n,,tx Khnll the plnr.. nf nijt
j in the face of Je-un Christ! This glory ls
an aoiaing one. t nuke tnat or tne law. it
dally grows more bright and blessed to
the ee of faith. 'Wo all. with unveiled
face. Ix holding as in a mirror the glory
of the Lord, are transformed into the
same image from glory to glory.'
"The purpose and effect of the two min
istries. In like maner. form a contrast.
The letter MUeth. the spirit glveth life.
The law. though glorious: brought only
death. It was. and Is. a revelation liotn
of the holiness of God. and of his require
ment from man. But the standard thus
set up. none rould attain to. and thus, according-
to God's purpoi-e. Its effect was
to convince of sin. It was a temporary In
stitution, added liecause of transgressions,
till the seed hould come to whom the
promise had ben made:
"Ijw has now given place to grace, and
we are In enjoyment of tho ministration
of the spirit, the object and Issue of
whlrh is life.
The gospel of the grace of God makes
no demands on man. it sets up no standard
of life or conduct as a e-ondltlon of sal
vation, but comes to hitri In his sinfulness
and need and points him to Calvary's
cross, bidding him listen to the Savior's
dying, but triumphant, cry. 'It is fin
ished.' "Ami as the soul turns bellevingly to him
It lecomes animated with a new power,
even the liberated life of the now ascended
Lord. In the energv of which it passes out
to live 'the life that Is life indeed.'
'The law made nothing perfect, but it
was the bringing in of a better hope bv
the which we draw mgh unto God.
ELIJAH'S EXAMPLE HELPFUL
TO DISCOURAGED CHRISTIANS
God Appcnra to the Ilnirnrnst and
Points Ont the Wny Toward
The Reverend Doctor It P. Fullerlon
preached yesterday morning at the Lucas
Avenue Cumberland Presbyterian Church,
taking as his text I Kings xlx. 19: "Yet will
I leave me seven thousand In Israel, all tho
knees which have not bowed unto Baal
and every mouth which hath not kissed
him." He said In part:
"This Is the divine balm for the broken
heart of one of his moet faithful servants.
"Elijah Is always Interesting, whether
wo find him challenglrg 430 prophets of
Baal on Carmel. running before the
chariot of Ahab or sitting under a Juni
per tree below Beersheba In almost hope
less despair. A three ears' drought had
been brought to a closo at the word of
this prophet, as it had been begun.
"He had defeated the prophets of Baal
en Carmel. one against ). had slain them
at Klshon and was a victor In tho namo
of his God. AH the people had cried out.
The Lord, he is God.' and were brought
back, apparently from their Idolatry.
"Ahab had told Jezebel, his Zldonlan
wife, what had been done, and In a rage
she had discatched a messenger to Eli
jah, who said to him, the Lord do so to
me also If I do not make you as one ot
incse oy mis time to-morrow, and then
this stern old crotiliet hastens in niehr tn
the extreme south of Judah to Beerehcba
and does not test until he has gone a
day's Journey further alone and sits down
under the jun'rer tree and pours out his
comolalnt to God.
"He will not be eomfortsd; sayo he alone
ls left faithful to God: even Implies that
he has Ijeen somewhat more careful for
the cause than God himself, and then In
his despair begs to b permitted to die.
What a sad change!
"Not many days ago ho poured out his
sarcasm, burning hot. upon the wild
prophets of Baal, rather took delight In
tlie fact that he was alone while they
were X. but now laments that he is alone,
and says his whole life lias been a failure
and It is better that It come to an abrupt
close and that he be forgotten. He ls fed
by the angels of God and refreshed, and
then takes up his tourney toward Horeb
In hopes, perhaps; that some of the fiery
visions which Mores had might be given
to soothe his stormy fouL
"What Is the cause of this despondency?
In the first place It was. In part, the re
sult or Intense physical tension. For days
he had leen wrought up to the extent of
his physical endurance. While It may be
true that his faith never wavered, still
that does not mean that there was not the
most intense physical strain upon the man.
The Issue of the. struggle bad been deter
mined. "In the second place, he was disap
pointed In hi expectations. There ls no
doubt but this fiery soul looked for great
er stability in Israel and a complete turn
ing from idolatry and Ahab and Jezebel,
and even their overthrow, but there was
neither, and. with his hopes high and his
body in a weakened condition, he was not
able to endure the strain longer. Such a
manifestation as that which had been wit
nessed on Carmel was sufficient to warrant
the most extravagant hopes for the
Idolatrous pcopl, but these hopes were
not realized, rather the opposite met him.
"How- did God deal with him? In the
first place, he gave him refreshment In
sleep and food. Many a man has sought
the minister when he needed most the
physician. What consideration can a
starving man give to divine things, or one
racked with physical pain and burning
with Intense fever? Better see the physi
cian. AIs! alas! too many put off the con
sideration of these great themes to the
time when they are not prepared calmly
to consider anything, even the most triv-
laj. much less these srreat questions that
"What KHIali needed mot nt this time-
was nourishment for his wasted body and
rest for hl tired brain, and both of thews
tht merciful father gave. Surely the

"THE TRIAL OF CHRIST"
FROM LEGAL STANDPOINT.
Macon Attorney Declare Heart tie
Was Illegal and Punishment In
Violation of Lair.
Macon. Mo.. Oct. Zj. An unusually large
audience assembled at the St. James Epis
copal Church to-night to hear D. R.
Hughes, attorncy-at-law. speak on "The
Trial ot Christ." from the standpoint of a
Touching the Jewish criminal laws and
how they wore disregarded In the hurried
action against the Savior or men. Mr.
"ITndcr the Jewish law every man ac
cused or a crime approached the court
with the presumption or innocence In his
favor, as U the case with us. Every safe
guard that could be conceived of to better
protect the rights of the prisoner was
wisely provided under that system or Juris
prudence. The law required two witnesses
to the overt act. Hearsay testimony was
Inadmissible, and It .was unlawful to con
vict a man on circumstantial evidence
alone. Ilerorc testifying, witnesses were
admonished by an officer of the court to
tell the whole truth and were srlously
reminded of the penalty for perjury.
. man was not allowed to incriminate
himself before a Jewish court, nor could
questions be lawfully asked him If tho
answers sought would tend to Incriminate
him. The Judges before whom the trial
was held were compelled bv law to ex
amine the various witnesses, and to cau
tiously employ every presumption point
ing to Innocence. After the testimony bad
all been Introduced, the accused and the
witnesses were ordered to retire, so as to
allow the Judges to privately reach their
"In these deliberations no Judge could
speak against the accused until some ono
had spoken In his favor. A vote was then
taken. If a majority or the Judges voted
guilty on the first ballot. It amounted to
an acquittal, for the reason that the law
presumed such a verdict to be the result
of passion or prejudice, if the second bal
lot resulted In a verdict of guilty, then
the law required the Judges to adjourn
"In the meantime they were to partake
of no food, but to meditate upon the tre
mendous responsibility resting upon them.
The next day the witnesses and tho ac
cused were again brought before the
court and re-examined as to the merits
of tho case. If, after they retired, a ver
dict of guilty was reached again, the ac
cused was brought In. sentence pronounced
and the execution followed.
"The court couM not continue to try a
capital case after nightfall. That was the
law. Yet Christ was arrested In the Gar
den of Gethsemane after midnight: ush
ered before the Sanhedrln and his trial at
once begun. Conviction was bad before
"The Sanhedrln. at the time of the trial
of Christ, was In session at the palace of
the High Priest, and not In the Temple
of Hewn Stone, as the law specifically
"The trial occurred on a festal day.
which would mske It as Illegal as If on
the Sabbath. No night Intervened be
tween the conviction or Christ and his
crucifixion, but within twelve hours rrom
the time of his arrest In the Garden of
Gethsemane his lifeless body hung- upon
the cross at Calvary.
"He was convicted lxfore the Sanhedrln
for blasphemy against tne Jewish law.
The penalty for this offense was death by
stoning, 'iet Christ was crucified, not for
the crime for which ho had been arrested
and tried, but for the greater crime or
treason against the Roman state, an or
fense ror which he had neither been tried
nor convicted On the contrary, he ha4
ben exonerated by Pilate and Herod three
times ror this offense."
