REV. MR. DAVENPORT
IN ELM PARK CHURCH
He Filled Hie Pulpit at the Morning and
TWO BRILLIANT DISCOURSES
In tho Morning Ho Took Ills Text
from the l'lillllpplnns"Tho Words
W'ota 'Tor Mo to IjIvo In Christ."
Wo Hnvo Coino to n Time When Wo
Hnvo Liberty Without Organlzn
tlntfWo Need Orcntilzntlon with
Itev. 1 M. Davenport, ot Yonkcrs, N.
Y occupier the pulpll at Kim Pntk
church yesterday, und preached two
brilliant sermons. Ills morning text
was from l'hllllpplnuB; 1:21, "For me to
live Is Christ."
Tho speaker pave a terse nnil graphic
view of Paul nnd of what the words
meant to him, not In the Hush of
youth, but nfter thirty years' service.
To him Christ was a hidden force, in
visible, powerful, but ever present, not
an opinion, but an experience. Wo
have had In church great organization
without liberty. We have now come
to tho time when we have liberty with
It is said the multitude of sects Is
necessary because of the difference of
opinion among men. but when there
were gathered together those 120 men
in that upper room there was no
thought of a religion for the cultured
and another for tho Ignorant, one for
the rich, another for the poor, one
for faithful Matthew, another for
doubting Thomas. In this country
there are 143 denominations and we are
getting away from the spirit when we
think of Christ In another way than
that in which Paul conceived life In
Illtn. What we need is organization
with liberty, In loving loyalty to Christ.
There Is such a difference In the In
terpretation of life, and yet there are
no manners worth having that are not
learned from Jesus Christ; no pleas
ure nor Joy like that of His service:
no treasures such as can be found In
tho heaven of His love; no knowledge
as broad ns that to be learned of God.
The speaker then gave a beautiful Il
lustration in which Christina, tho little
daughter of the dead Gustavus Adol
phus, of Sweden, was made queen on
the testimony of her heirship as pro
nounced by a peasant who saw In her
the lineaments of her great father.
He said In closing:
"Tin; world presses very close to us
to see If we are Irving' in the charac
ter of Jesus Christ. It wants to believe
that for us to live Is Christ. O Paul, you
grand old soul; you lived as you wrote.
Jlay the llfo of Him who inspired you
work In us, touch our lips and our
hearts until one day we shall be like
REV. DR. CHAMBERS' SERMON.
Spoke .Horning nnd livening in Green
ltidge l'rcsbytcrinn Church.
The services at the Green Ridge
Presbyterian church yesterday gave
very little evidence of the vacation sea
son. Rev. Dr. Chambers, of the Cal
vary Presbyterian church of New York,
preached morning and evening. His
morning text was taken from Acts,
1:25. "That he may take part of this
ministry and apostleship from which
Judas by transgression fell, that he
might go to his own place."
Dr. Chambers spoke earnestly along
the line of personal characteristics
and Inherent nature as arbiters of hu
man fate, rather than education, train
ing and external circumstances. He
exposed the fallacy of many time-worn
maxims. An unusually large and ap
preciative audience greeted him both
morning and evening.
This is vncatlon month both for the
organist, Miss Salome Becker, and the
choir. However, through the efforts of
G. F. Whittemore, a pleasing Innova
tion in the way of music was furnished
by fourteen male voices. The .jlngers
were principally from Elm Park, Penn
Avenue Baptist church and Green
Ridge, and included Messrs Warlike,
Conrad, Caswell, Powell, C. A. Whitte
more, F. A. Beldleman, H. H. Beidlo
man, Gruener, Roberts, Haverling,
Mong and Kllpatrick.
Miss Christine McMillan, of Kansas
City, presided at the organ.
.Mndo in Simpson M. E. Church by the
The Simpson chapter of the Epworth
league conducted the evening service
at the Simpson Methodist Episcopal
church last evening. The choir loft
was decorated with bunting, which
hung In streamers, and In the center
was suspended the league emblem,
made from flowers. The nltar plat
form was decorated with palms and
plants. The electric light standards on
either side were trimmed with the
United States and British colors, the
Stars and Stripes commingling with
tha crosses of St. Andrew and St.
An Interesting feature of the meet
ing was the report of the delegates,
who attended tho recent big Interna
tlonal convention held nt Toronto, Can.
ada. After the usual church notices
were read, Rev. J. B. Sweet made a
few opening remarks and Introduced
Miss May Jones, who gave tho story of
the trip to Toronto and an interesting
description of tho city of Toronto. Miss
Margaret Crawford read a paper de
scribing tho first day's session. Tho
main Incident ot this day was the
reading of a telegram from President
McKlnloy and Its receipt being hon
ored by tho Chautauqua salute. A
hymn was sung, and Miss Annn
Hughes told of the second day's work.
On this day many practical sugges
tions were given out for Epworth
work. William Long spoke of the third
day, giving as its main Import a day
ot Inspiration. Miss Rachel Jones con
cluded the reports with a paper on the
last day. This day wns one of fare
well und yet It was the best and prob
ably most enthusiastic of the conven
tion. The pastor, in a few choice words,
presented the society with a largo en
grossed copy of the league pledge to
bo placed In a conspicuous place In the
league rooms, Tho copy was neatly
framed and placed upon a half-size
easel. The church choir assisted in the
singing nnd a quartette rendered a se
lection. William Stanton, cornetist,
and William Allen, violinist, also as
sited. The services were concluded by
the Blnglng of a hymn.

tho Afternoon with Her Grnnd
mothcr. Little Hannah Blanch, a Dunmoro
child, was drowned In Roaring Brook
yesterday afternoon within cnll of her
grandmother's home, nnd before tho
distracted gaze of several young com
panions who were powerless to save
her. Tho Blanch child was 9 years
old, and n daughter of Anthony
Blanch, of 11C Bloom street. Dunmore.
Yesterday she bade her mother and
father goodbye and stnrted away to
spend the afternoon with her grand
mother, Mrs-. Glnley, who lives near
the Erie and Wyoming Valley tracks
at "Bunker Hill." About 4 o'clock
she and some little girls of the neigh
borhood began playing along the banks
of Roaring Brook, which (lows at tho
foot of the hill near the grandmother's
The brook, swelled to quite a tor
rent by the recent rains, offered great
allurements to the children, and they
had rare sport as they traversed the
banks nnd watching the departure of
sticks thrown into tho rushing, whirl
ing water. They scampered over tho
rocks and banks until they reached d
deep pool about E00 yards north of the
Pennsylvania Coal company offices nt
No. 6, the pool where the Blanch girl
was to meet her dentil.

There the water's black-looking sur
face and apparent depth caused tho
girls to pause. It enticed the Blanch
child to approach the edge of the
waters, to reach which she was obliged
to go cautiously along some largo and
One of the rocks sloped to the pool's
edge. A false step was mnde and tho
little one slid Into the water and to
her death. Her companions screamed
and looked about them for help. No
human being was In sight, and if there
was a friendly pole or stick at hand tho
children were powerless to get It within
reach of the drowning girl. They saw
her white face come once to the sur
face; then appeared an eddy where
she sank, and the pool had claimed
The two ran crying to tho grand
mother's house nnd told what had hap
pened. J. J. Glnley, an uncle of the
Blanch girl, ran to the pool. He waded
Into it nnd found the body lying In
about four foot of water. Dr. George

Thomas Moore, of Moscow, was seri

the Delaware, Lackawanna and West

Is a young man 20 years of age and rode
to this city on a freight train.
When alighting in the yard he was
thrown violently to the ground and
sustained an ugly scalp wound and a
severe Injury to the back. He was re
moved to the Moses Taylor hospital.
Last night the hospital authorities were
unable to say whether or not Moore
would recover as they had not "been

are paralyzed.it is surmised that the
Injury to the spine is of a serious na

Mr. Vldaver was one of a party of
four who saw the Wild West show
