an Interesting svord picture of the mys

Dr. McLeod's text was from I Kings,

dew nor rain those years, but according
to my svord." lie remarked that the
lecture was only Introductory and that
notable events In Elijah's extraordinary
life svould be treated in subsequent dis
courses. Dr. AlcLcod said:
"Of the uood nnmea recorded In the

spicuous place. From his liery temper

again and uuain, he called down lire
from heaven, he has been called 'The

that does not, in the least, detract from
lt3 merit nor from its genuineness. The
fact that Klljah lived and moved and
acted, at times, under supernatural in
iiuences, is plainly recorded, and the
record is true.
"We will do svell to bear In mind that
the great characters of the Bible are
not overdrasvn. The divine pencil
paints from life. Inspired biography is
not subject to revision or amendment.
The holy men of old svho were moved
by the Holy Spirit, were- under no
temptation either to suppress or distort
the truth. The life of Klljah Is quite
as strange as the life of Jonah, but
that is no reason why either should be
made the subject of cheap svit and of
smart ridicule. The miracles recorded
In the Bible are not put there for our
amusement. On the contrary, they are
profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for
correction and for instruction In right
eousness. "The Bible writers neither exagger
ate the virtues nor minimize the vices
of men. They tell the plain unvar
nlshed truth. God deals fairly, impar
tially, justly svlth every- man's charac
ter. "When Pope said that England's
greatest chancellor svas the 'meanest
of mankind' he was guilty both of
cruelty and of Injustice. The man svho
became the champion of the inductive
philosophy; who feared God and re
garded his fellosv men; svho erred most
grieviously but confessed his faults;
the man svho has made consenting
Christendom his debtor, svas1 not the
'meanest of mankind.' His dofamer
was not worthy to unloose his shoe
"Secular biographies and obituaries
are not always entirely trustworthy.
But sacred biography is always true
to the truth. The Spirit of God is-not
a lying spirt. Bearing this In mind, it
may be instructive as well as Interest
ing to note some of the more promi
nent points and events in the life of
llhls lexttuordinary man Elljahj the
EARLY' LIFE OBSCURE.
"We knosv nothing of his early life.
His home, his parents, his education,
Ills lineage are all burled in obscurity.
He appears abruptly as 'Elijah, the
Tlshbite,' svho was of the Inhabitants
of Gllead.' But although abruptly In
troduced by the sacred biographers, lie
appears at once as a man of mark. His
llrst sentence Is a trumpet blast. 'As
the Lord God of Israel liveth, before
Whom I stand, there shall not be desv
nor rain these years, but according to
"No svonder the kins: and queen, nnd
the svhole nation svere alarmed. The
message came like a thunderbolt. It
was a terrific utterance, and It svas fol

Dr. McLeod then described the ago in
which Klljah lived. Rqugh, ssicked,

WILL COMPLAIN OF
MAYOR AND CHIEF
Constable Tim Jones Says Tlicy Abetted
a Public Nuisance.
A STORY WITH TWO VERSIONS
Tho Question of Wlicthor or Not a
Society Can Ilnu a Jtar at it Hall
Kilters Into the Case nnd .May Claim
Sonic Attention from Court--Whnt
tho Various Intctcstcd Parties
Have to Say.
The spectacle of the mayor and chief
of police of this city being called be
fore court to anssver the chat go of aid
ing and abcttlnir a private nuisance Is
among the possibilities of today.
Whether or not the court may see lit
to summon these olllclals to answer the
above choree Is not known, but one
thing Is knosvn and that Is the charge
svlll be made.
The complainant svlll bo Constable
Timothy Jones, of the Fifth ward. lie
avers that the charge Is true und th'at
he svlll mnke It and If given a chance,
prove It In open court this morning.
The public nuisance in question Is the
speak-easy of Mike Sharrook on Tsven-ty-second
stieet. Shurrock svas arrest
ed and Indicted about a month ago for
selling without a license and for run
ning a dlsoiderly house. Recently he
built a hall In connection win his sa
loon and Satui'day night it svas opened
svilh a grand ball. Before making the
uirnngemeiils for the opening Shnr
raek svent to County Detective Ley
ulion and Constable Tlin Jones to ilnd
out If It wouldn't be all right to dis
pense beer. there as long as It svas done
by n society under whose auspices the
opening ball svas to be given. The of
Ilclals apncaled to advised Sliarrack
that If he aljosved intoxicants, to bo sold
on his premises he svould be making
himself amenable to the lasv. Despite
tills svarning v put in fourteen kegs
of beer and ten gallons of svhlsky, ac
cording to 'Constable Jones' statement,
and sold It without any attempt at se
crecy. SHARRACK AGAIN WARNED.
Constable Jones svent to Sharrnck'n
place Saturday night njtd again
svnrncd him to desist. Sliarrack said
he had a right to sell as the society
which svas running the ball had a char
ter which gave them the right to have
beer and svhHky at their balls, just as
they do In thei" halls over In town. He
also said the mayor and chief of police
knesv It svas all right because they had
given him police protection. Mr. Jones
found Patrolmen Saul and Peters on
the mound In uniform and making In
quiries learned that they had been sent
to the place at Shnrraek's request by
Chief Holding. Constable Jones there
upon decided that when lie made com
plaint of tlie affair he svould Include
the mayor and chief of police and put
them up at the too of the list among
the principal offenders. When seen
last night Constable Jones said:
"We have orders from court that
svhen we return a man for selling with
out a license and he continues to sell
after being indicted, sve are to arrest
him for maintaining a public nuisance.
That Is what sve propose to do In this
case. The mayor and chief are guilty
of aiding and abetting a public, nuis
ance by encouraging the ball by fur
nishing uniformed officers to preserve
order, after being warned by citizens
that the place svas a speak-easy. I svlll
go before court this morning and com
plain of the mayor, chief and the pro
prietor of the place."
Mayor Bailey svhen asked for a state
ment concerning the matter said he
knesv nothing of it until yesterday
svhen ho heard the olilcers talking about
it in the station house. He denied that
any comm ittee of citizens or any other
committee had svaited on him concern
ing the ball or anything pertaining to
It. Chief Holding said svhen approached
on the matter:
PROTEST WAS ENTERED.
"It Is true a man came to mo to pro
test airalnst olilcers being sent to the
ball. He said his name svas Lynn and
that he kept a saloon on Callahan's cor
ner. I told him that I knesv nothing
whatever of the character of Shar
rack's place. All I knesv svas that a so
ciety, a chartered fraternal organiza
tion, svas to run a ball in some hall on
Twenty-second street, that they want
ed a couple of olilcers to prevent dis
orderly characters from breaking in
and disturbing their ball. This svas
commendable In them to my way of
thinking and as Is customary svlth ev
ery society making a similar request I
assigned tsvo day oflicers to do duty
there. They svere paid by the society,
I suppose. Whatever they get goes
Into their own pocket according to the
custom that has Deen in vogue in tho
department for years."

TAKEN SUDDENLY ILL.
Airs. L. Davenport of Franklin Avenue
Was Overcome While Sitting in a
About S.30 o'clock last nlsht a middle-aged
svomnn, poorly clad, came Into
Dr. Stevens' ofllce on the second lloor
of the Koempel building, corner of
Washington avenue and Linden street,
and asked permission to wait there un
til Dr. Lesvls Frey, svhose oillce Is next
doflr, might return. After motioning
her to a sofn. Dr. Stevens returned to
attend u patient In an Inner room,
whence he had been called by the svo
man's knock at the door.
Less than five minutes had passed
svhen his attention svus again attracted
to the outer room by a succession of
(Illicit nnd loud rapplngs and looking
out he sasv his strange visitor pounding
on the lloor svlth her umbrella and
grasping her throat with her other
hand as if she svas choking. Before the
doctor could reach her side she fell
back on the sofa unconscious. An ex
amination verilled his first sulimlse
that the svoman svas suffering from
oedema of the Iunss, nn affectation
svhlch blocks the passage and causes
He sumoned Dr. Logan, svhose oillce
is In the same building, and also tele
phoned for the Lackasvanna hospital
ambulance. The ariival of the ambu
lance attracted a crosvd and one young
man svho found his svny up to the room
where the svoman svas, recognized her
as a Mrs. Boyer, living on Franklin
avenue. He told the doctors and vol
unteered to Inform her relatives. He
came back In a quarter of an hour svlth
tlie information that the svoman he sup
posed he sasv lying on the sofa in Dr.
Stevens' oillce opened the door for him
svhen he rang the bell at her house.
Under tlie care of Dr. Stevens, Dr
Logan, Resident Surgeon McGrath, of
the hospital and Coroner Longstreet,

proved In the course of an hour and
rallied sullicientlv to be nble to gasp
out a fesv svords. "Moody" she kept
saying svhenever she could summon
sudlclont strength. The doctors begun
to question her to ascertain her iden
tity and from her occasional half-intel-llgible
gasps and her affirmative or
negative nods of tho head they figured
out that she svas the svife of P. O.
Moody, a book agent living at C27 Nortn
Washington avenue. The svord passed
among the crosvd outside that It svas
Mrs. Moody and many loft for their
destinations, scattering as they svent
the story and telling thnt the unfortu
nate svoman svas Mrs. Moody. But like
the Boyer rumor this also proved to be
false. The dying svoman svas not Mrs.
