It Is the privilege of the believer to enjoy

woik of tho Holy Ghost Is described as

In bloody warfare In defence of this or

cheating themselves Into a belief that
they were followers of Jesus Christ; but
only those are truly His whoso lives
are dominated by tho Holy Ghost.
In closing the speaker urged his peo
ple to take the cross of Christ as
their symbol, and to enlist In an army
which knew not defeat; an army which
had for Its weapon the bible. Dur
ing the civil war thousands of lives
were lost that the glorious stars and
stripes should not trail in the dust,
and because of this, our country to
day rejoices In honoring its illustrious
heroes. Their expllots are recalled
that patriotism may be instilled Into
the hears of the young. How much
more worthy those who have laid down
their llve3 for the sake of Christ!
ItEV. MR. MOFFATT'S SERMON.
Colonel Monies post, No. 319, Grand
Army of the Republic, led by Captain
P. J. McAndrews, attended divine ser
vices at the Washburn Street Presby
terian church last evening. The post
was accompanied by the Woman's Aid
circle, No. 19. The church, altar and
pulpit were tastily adorned with flow
ering plants and the choir alcove was
trimmed with the national colors. A
large Hag was draped overhead In the
form of a canopy relieved on cither
side with smaller Hags. The whole
producing a very pretty effect.
The trimming was done by William
Burrall and David Morgan. A quar
tette consisting of Miss Smith, Mrs.
Cnlklns, Arthur Van Gorder and David
Beynon materially assisted with sev
The audience was very large and the
patriotic sermon preached by the pas
tor, Rev. J. P. Motfatt, was enjoyed
by all. In his Introduction Rev. Mr.
Moffatt spoke of the fact of his being a
veteran's son and that while he
preached to one post another post In
far oft Indiana was probably caring
for the grave of his father. The post
was called the Moffatt post In honor of
"The object of such an occasion,"
said the pastor, "was not a recalling of

former hatred, but the beautiful pui

Port Chester Mini Dies Before

New York, Bay SC1. John Maddlgan,
of Port Chester, was found dying ear

He expired before he could be con

Its protection of tho living soldier, tho

but every dserving case should be con
sidered a pleasant task to care for.
GRAND OBJECT LESSON.
This organization of the ex-soldlers
called the Grand Army of the Republic
Is tho grandest object lesson ot tho
day. No other country honors Its plain
soldier dead as does this country, nnd
as we profit by their deaths, so should
we bo willing nnd eager to help to
make each recurring Decoration Day
a day for the performance of pleasant
duties. Before closing, t would thank
the members of the Ladles' Aid circle
for their many kind ministrations ot
love. No one can do just us a woman
ran in things of this nature. Were not
the women a part of tho war as wero
the men? Did they not lose father,
husband, brother or sweetheart? Tho
tanks of tho hospital corps were filled
by women and she has ever been faith
ful nt her post. They are Indeed a
valuable auxiliary to any post of tho
Grand Army of the Republic.
Tn conclusion, I would say to you
nil: Live worthy of the trust and you
will always be honored and loved nnd
yi ur final withdrawal will be regretted
by the world, and to all who stand
fnlthful will be given a crown of life
immortal, through Jesus Christ.
After the closing prayer, the hymn
"America" was sung and the benedic
tion pronounced. The audience then
remained seated while the Post and
Ladles' Aid society filed out.
ASBURY M. E. CHURCH.
Rev. A. V. Chaffee preached a Me
morial Day sermon laBt evening to the
members of Griffin post, No. 139, Grand
Army of the Republic, at the Asbury
Park Methodist Episcopal church. The
auditorium was crowded to the doora.
Special decorations had been arranged
for the occasion. Behind the pulpit
was a richly colored American Hag
looped artistically. The sides of the
church were also brightened with the
ted, white and blue. Palms, flowers
and green stuffs completed a very
Rev. Mr. Chaffee took as his text
the Immortal sentence In scripture:
"Render Unto Cnesar the Things That
are Caesar's." On this divine doctrine
the speaker bullded a fine argument
that wo should pay to the veterans ot
the war the homage which is due their
sacrifice and devotion. "Their heroism
has never been rightly told," sold Mr.
Chaffee; "some day a Milton or a Byron
will weave the storied incidents of the
war into an epic that will charm and
entertain the world." He spoke In the
forepart of his oration on the war feel
ing as he felt and observed It In the
times that tried men's souls. Mr. Chaf
fee's story was decidedly refreshing to
the Veterans present.
THEY WERE GLORIOUS MEN.
He spoke of the Blood Angle and
the mammoth sacrifice of a Minnesota
regiment, which volunteered to bear
the fruit of the enemy's onslaught,
and nearly every .men wns sacrificed.
These, he termed, as glorious men!
"We hang their pictures," said the
speaker, "on our walls; we build to
them monuments In the cemeteries;
yearly we bedew their graves with
our tears and we allow them to live
In our fondest memory; yet there Is n
better way." This way he designated
the way of keeping commandments to
express love "live the principles dear
He pictured the scene of Washington
and Henry In the stirring revoluntary
clays; of Hamilton, of Webster, and
last of all, Lincoln "the greatest man
in the Inst ten centuries" and said the
speaker: "All of these say: "If you love
us, live the principles that are dear to
us." Mr. Chaffee then reached what he
called the "common soldiery."
He deprecated the methods of our
political parties. "Let us perpetuate the
past and If the present be right so shall
the future." With this concluding
thoiiKht the sermon was finished. A
quartette Messrs. Treverton andTrev
crton, Olver nnd Langon sang during
the services. Rev. J. S. Lyman, of
Green Ridge, a veteran of the war,
spoko a few words to the post mem
bers after Mr. Chaffee's effort.
IN TABERNACLE CHURCH.
Rev. D. P. Jones, pastor of the Tab
el nacie Congregational church, preach
ed to a large congregation last eve
ning. He chose as his text the com
mand of Christ to Peter: "Put up
Thy &or'd Into Its Sheath," as record
ed in the. Gospel of John xvlli:2. His
sermon was In touch with the purposes
of Decoration Day, and was a com
parison of the wars of man with man
and the war waged by man against
sin. In his discourse two thoughts were
emphasized, viz: That war of any kind
among human beings has not been or
dained by God, nnd that war has no
power to destroy the enmity of sin in
In proof of these two thoughts he cit
ed tho fact that moral law, as well
as the highest nature of man con
demns war. That Christ did not per
mit Peter to continue the slashing off
ot ears, as the sword was not a weapon
to Mil the enmity of these people to
watd Him, but His filling grace, which
should enable men and women to obey
the hlchest laws of life.
In conclusion he summed up the
whole idea In the one central intent
that thousands of peaceful people take
part in a war to uphold the rights of
mankind, and that "While we believe
not in war as a moral power of ad
vancement among nations, yet we can
not but feel glad of those people that
havo sacrificed their lives on the bat
tle field in behalf of their homes and
the rights of their country, which
principles are the moral property of
mankind. I hope that the Decoration
Day of the American people will not
be miscomprehended by the rising gen
eration of our country.
WHY WE DECORATE.
"We are not strewing flowers upon
the graves of faithful warriors becauso
they had love In their hearts toward
war and shedding of human blood. We
aro not parading tho streets of our
cities In honor of the sword and tho
cannon. But our hearts rejoice in
the principles of patriotism that made
them loyal to their country In time of
great need. Our gratitude goes out
In flowers nnd music, not Tor war In
Itself, but to honor the remembrance
of moral qualities that enabled thous
ands of faithful men and boys to lay
down their lives for the freedom of
their fellow beings.
"War shall be buried forever with
out a flower upon Its grave, but peace
shall endure all ages and partake of
llfo everlasting. For tho Lord Jesus
Christ Is going to take hold of all na
tions, nnd shall govern them by the
principles of the command given by
him to Peter. Our nation Is going to
uphold the rights of men and the hon
or of God In this country by the samo
principles and' not by tho sword and
the spirit of war.
"While we nre strewing flowers upon
the graves of our dear ones In these
days, may we think of n land of peace
as the resting place of the faithful
when flowers shall never fade away.
Decoration of character with Christian
virtues is the highest aim of life."

vere Injuries nnd had a narrow escape
from a frightful death yesterday after

one of his fellow employes but no one
remembers having taken notice of him
agan until Clark's Summit, was
When tho train stopped there nnd he
did not show up to help in the switch
ing the crew became alarmed for
his safety and started goln over tho
train examining the wheels to see It
there wns any evidence of his having
been run over.
One of tho br.akemen In passing along
was startled by finding Snyder lying
face downward across the bumpers of
a lumber car, unconscious and with
blood flowing from his mouth. He was
lifted from his perilous position and
placed on the caboose to be taken to
the Moses Taylor hospital. On the
way down, however, he recovered con

he wns not seriously Injured. Ho de

He said that when passing Glenburn

Is that he experienced a sinking sen
