being a suspicious ' character.
He was employed on the work-train
of tho Chesapeake and Ohio railroad,
and the night hands stopped at-2 A. M.
The lire in the car was low and' no
fuel on hand. Harris took a lump from
H awes' yard opposite lo which the
train stood to replenish the fire and just
then the officer came alone.
A VALUABLE LAUGH.
The railroad employes testilied as to
his honesty and good character and his
own spontaneous laugh and good-nature
went far to plead his own cause.
He agreed with the Great Dispenser's
proposition, that a nigger will steal un?
der some circumstances and was dis?
Edwin Bumpass (colored) did not fare
so well, though Ills cape was none the
less peculiar, being a clear case of steal?
ing by Unding.
A gentleman lost his dressing case from
his buggy while driving home from his
club and Bumpass found it in the
street. The clothes therein had the name
of the gentleman on them in several
places and the papers also made it easy
to find the owner. A purse in one of

was incorrigible and they could do noth?

Others testified Ihat the girl's step?

away from home. Still others said the
parents were not cruel, but were care?
less about the girl and that the girl was
naturally such a pre va tic?..tor ihat no

Anthony Hufl'noi? Swallows an Over?

Anthony Huffner had a close call for
his life yesterday morning as a result
of taking (by mistake an overdose of
strychnine. The amount taken was more
than half an ounce, and that he is still
alive, seems almost a miracle.
Huffner resides ut So. 22 east Broad
street and lor some lime past has been
iu bad health. Sunday his physlcain
prescribed for him lifteen drops of
strychnine, after or before each meal,
'?'he medicine was gotten and Sunday
before dinner and that night before sup?
per the proper doses were tuken.
Getting up very early yesterday morning,
while it was yet dark in his room, he
took from the bottle what he supposed
was fifteen drops, started for his day's
work, but feeling a little queer, it sud?
denly dawned upon him that possibly
lie had taken an overdose oi" strychinine.
Returning to his room, he found the
bottle and that two-thirds of its contents
has been taken as Ills morning dose.
At this discovery he was alarmed, so
placing the bottle in his pocket, he start?
ed for the Virginia Hospital. Scarcely
had he reached the Institution and told
his story, when he was taken with a vio?
lent convulsion and for more thun an
hour he was in a most serious condition.
After a long struggle the skill of the phy?
sicians prevailed and the man's life was
saved. He is yet at the hospital, but Js
out of danger.

Century Fund ? Other
Church Notes. ;
, The auditorium of tho Grove-Avenue
Baptist church was crowded to its ut?
most capacity by those who wished to
hear Dr. Hawthorne's sermon on the
Patriotism of the Peacemaker.
A large representation of the Junior
Order of United American Mechanics, to
whom the sermon was delivered, were
present. The text was taken from the
one hundred and twenty-second Psalm,
He said in part:
"I- am happy to recognize this morn
ing,the presence of a. very large repre?
sentation of un organization of American
citizens whose principles and purposes
are notably patriotic. If they should suc?
ceed in their undertakings this country
will have a career of harmony, brother?
ly kindness and prosperity surpassing
the visions of its roost optimistic proph?
et. As far as I am acquainted with
their spirit and purposes, 1 see nothing
objectionable but their advocacy of the
reading of fhe Bible in the public schools.
The people of this country have never
delegated to their civil government the
authority to provide in any degree for
the religious training of their children.
This is a sacred duty which they will
perform in their homes, churches and
Dr. Hawthorne spoke of the attitude
o' the Juniors towards the public schoi.'s.
He said: "This organization j nclaims

DR. KERR'S ANNIVERSARY.
Dr. Kerr preached a sermon -Sunday
morning to a large and intelligent con?
gregation In commemoration of the six?
teenth anniversary (Sunday) of his
pastorate of the- First Presbyterian
church. He chose as his text "Hitherto
Hath the Lord Helped Us." I. Samuel
Dr. Kerr said in part:
Sixteen years ago, to-day, I was In?
stalled as pastor of the First Presby?
terian church, by a Committee of East
Hano\'or (Presbytery, consisting of tho
Rev. M. D. Hoge. D. D., who presided
and preached three sermons, Rev. XV. T.
Richardson, D. D., who delivered the
charge to the people, and Itev. Charles H.
Read. D. D., who delivered the charge
to the pastor. A few weeks after this,
the church, then standing on the present
site of the City Hall, was taken down
to be rebuilt where it now is, at the
corner of Grace and Madison streets.
The past sixteen years have been an
era of change and siso an era of growth.
Then we had In city and suburbs six
churches; now we have twelve chuches
and four misions, one of which will be
made an organized church two weeks
from to-day. Then we had 1,5S2 communi?
cants in our churches: now we have 3.
027?the number of churches doubled and
the number of communicants nearly
doubled. Union Theological Seminary has
been brought here, and we have founded
In the Southern Presbyterian church at
large there has been great growth also.
Sixteen years ago we had 131.25S communi?
cants: now we have, according to reports
last May, 221,022.
In our own congregation there has been
constant growth. Wc have never had
a protracted meeting, yet I have not
held a communion in this church with?
out additions to its membership. XVe
Have received 721 members, that aver?
ages 45 per year, and have contributed
Sl_l.l!_ to the support of the gospel.
in ISSI we had 3.11 members; now 55D.
Very large numbers have been dismissed
to take part in new organizations.
The Monday morning weekly Prcf.y
terlan Minister's Meeting, the' annual
United Communion Service, the Evangel?
ical ?Alliance, and the annual May Fes?
tival of Christian Unity, begun so glo?
riously last May in the Academy of Mu?
sic, all originated from the First Presby?
terian church, and have done great
good in bringing the Presbyterians of the
city into a fellowship ???. ?uto that of
a family, and also In drawing Christians
generally nearer together, and in si?
lencing the world's cavil that "Chris?
tians do not love one another." My
motto has always been "Christ ?and all
Christians?the Church." At the same time
1 have constantly endeavored to instruct
the people in the doctrines, government,
and history of the Presbyterian church,
the church of our fathers, holding firm?
ly to the historic tenets of our faith,
and standing by the 'Bible as the infalli?
ble Word of God.
Nl-W SECOND ? ARTIST.
Before beginning his sermon yesterday
morning pn "The Patriotism of the
Peacemakers." Dr. Hawthorne said: "I
gladly embrace this opportunity to say.
that the success of the Second Baptist
church in raising a sufficient sum of
money to erect a new and beautiful tem-,
pie of worship on Franklin street, af?
fords me much joy and satisfaction. I -
honor to the Baptist denomination. The
am sure that I am warranted in sending
to that noble church the congratulations
of this church and congregation. The
sanctuary which they rropose to erect
will be an ornament to the city and an
Second Baptist church has a noble rec?
ord and _nder the leadership of its pres?
ent cultured, wise, and consecrated pas?
tor is destined' to attain a position of
still greater distinction and influence."

On last Sunday morning Rev. Vf. ?.
Beauchamp .preached a most excellent
sermon on "Loyalty to Christ in Our
Homes," and selected for his tex't Cor.
16 chapter, and the latter part of "file 13th
verse. He said in part:
"1 especially desire to call your atten?
tion to those latter words, 'the church
that is in thy house.' You will find in
many of St. Paul's letters such.a' refer?
ence as tnis: 'The church that is\ in thy
house.' This was doubtless due to ,the
fact ..that the Christians had no place of
public meeting, and so met in the home
or some one who was a Christian. An?
other idea, the one which I wish to dis?
cuss is, that in a large sense every home
became a church. In Old Testament
?Scripture the father was recognized as
the father ot the home, and in a certain
sense, a. priest of that home. So it seems
to me that every home' that is Christian
and professes so to be, ought, in a very
slgnilicant sense, to he a church within
?'The homo is the most essential thing
in'church or state. In a land like this
the safeguard of a nation, of any nation,
Is not lirst of all in its educational insti?
tutions, however important they are?and
they are important?but' the first element
of the State and the. fudamental eFement
of the State is the home, and the home
Is the unit of a nation's life and *a na?
tion's province. Every man who is a
?Christian, and every man should be a
Cnri*?tian everywhere, .whether it he at
te church on Sunday, or in the week
at the places of business, or in the home,
he shouJd be first of all and pre-eminently
a Christian loyal to Christ.
"This day I know we are very busy,
and the men have to hurry away every
morning to their business, to their offices
and to their work of one sort or another;
but isn't there anything else in the world
for a man but his business? Isn't there
anything else that demands your atten?
tion and mind but the daily affairs of
life? Isn't there something infinitely
above these things that task our hands
and Drain day by day? Isn't there some?
thing that Is above that, and inflntely
of more Importance? I tell you, yea, and
that the matter under consideration is
what you do at your- home for the in?
fluencing and the uplifting, and the guid?
ing of tihose who are committed to you
by your God.
"I know that ofttimes a man's nights
are taken up with a lodge, or a club, or
a society of some sort. One night after
janother they are away from their home
and from their children and from thc-ir
family, and right there is where, the
degeneracy of a nation's life begins. In
that home, where the strong, guiding
?band of a father, and the spiritual, per?
sonal and ,pious influence of his wife is
taken away, right there begins fhe de?
generaci- of the children. If I were a
motner, and only had strength to do one
Uiing, that one thing would be my
home. It is tne mother's'throne. Vf.Smat?
may be noble in other respects, but In
the creation of God, by the Instinct of
I her nature. In the teachings of Christ,
there is nothing so great for woman as
the marvelous influence of God as she
may have in that home and upon that
throne, sending out jnen and women

thought that thc highest honor for woman
was to he the mother of sons, and to
make them great men. I believe that to?
day, under God's teachings, the highest
office of the mother ,1s to train those chil?
dren committed to hc-r care, so that they
may be a blessing to the world. The
Methodist iparents of a generation ago
may not have been as learned as some
in this day. they may none have had the
wealth that some of us have to-day, but
they Knew some things wisely and did
them well, and one of thes?? was that
