The subject of the liscoutc, "Self-cou-ileinnatlou,"
was 1mso1 on the text from
Samuel II, sil:T "And Nathan taid to
David, thou art the man "
This verse Is the conclusion of the story
of the wealthy m.iu who appropriated tin

should he repaid fourfold, never once think

contain much food for thought, particu
larly when applied to oun-elves. Who of
us would not find himself In the same

"UgRestcd is to "see ourseles as others

et tlill very different.
It is not the good that Is In us that

What we would all like to sec Is the picture

COMPARISON" OF EI'ITArilS.
Rev. J. J. Jf ulrV Sermon on the "Itx
A comparison of epitaphs was the feature
of the sermon of ttev. J. J. JIuir at E Street
Baptist Church last night. Ills topic was
"The Ifs of Agnosticism," and his text
I Peter 1:3, 4 and 0.
Keferring to the fact that the certainty
of a life hereafter was the cause ot Uie sa
cred writer's thanksgiving, he said it was
this,-too, that put upon the tombs of the
Christian dead beautiful -words Inspiring
hope and glUng comrort to broken hearts.
On the other hand, the agnostic is full
of doubt nnd dread. When Trot. Huxley,
the father of agnosticism, died they placed
upon his monument these words:
"And If there be no meeting past the grave;
If all is darkness, silence, yet 'tis rest.
Be not afraid, je waiting hearts that weep.
For God still giveth His beloved sleep.
And It an endless sleep He wills, so best."
Hecalled attention to the peculiar sadness
ot these words, the lack of consolation in
them. He said Julian Hawthorne wrote
recently, that when he called on Prof.
Huxley at his home some time ago, the
great scientist sat at evening and listened
to his daughters singing of love and a better
As they sang tears filled the old man's
eyes and coursed down his cheeks. Yet in
his death there was nothing better to be
said than content, If hereafter, then should
be complete cessation ot conscious life.

John L. Kennedy, ex-presldcnt of Colum
bia Typographical Union, No. 101, was
yesterday afternoon by a vote of 1G to
04 indefinitely suspended from membership
for Conduct unliecomlng a printer.
About 400 printers attended the meetlri-.
which was unusually exciting, but not
disorderly, those present applauding or
hissing according to their feelings.
The charges of unbecoming conduct,
which consisted In writing an article for
the Dayton, Ohio, Journal, of which Mr.
Kennedy Is correspondent, censuring Pub

adoption of the civil service In the Govern
ment Printing Office, were prciiared by
Ed T. Toner, Thomas M. Lawler, and Will
lam E. Greenfield, delegates to the con
vention of the International Typographical
Union last year at Louiswlle.
Mr Kennedy charged in Ills article that
these delegates had worked with Mr.

civil service was adopted, and that they
iad secured the reference of the civil serv
ice question, when brought before the con

behalf, and said in conclusion that If

It would appear liefore the world as a body

to restrict freedom of the press.
Mr. Kennedy was president of the union
In 1890 and 1891 and was a delegate to

the presidency of the national union. He
