TELLS OF APOSTLE'S VISION
Rev*. W. D. Landis Gives Vivid De.
scription in Sermon at Weatlake
"Th«» lilvlng Lord" was the topic nf
Ihp sprmnn preiuhnd !>y Rev. W. I>.
l.n.nrtls, pastor of (ho Wfwtlnko I'ros
. byterlini church, nt the morning service
X yesterday. He spokp of the vision of
f.lohn t, \ the Islo of I'utnios, and said
'•Here Jesus Christ appeared to John,
tlm beloved disciple, us the mediator.
He was thfl sou of man, partaker of the
human nature of John and could sym
pathize with him In all his persecution
nnd banishment. Hut this same hu
manity was nlso divine, for he says ho
is first and Ihsi, Alpha and Omegn.
"As man, he had hoad, hair, hands,
voice and feet. As Ood, he was clothed
with golden girdle of love. His eye 3
were as penetrating as flame of fire;
truth as piercing as a two-edged sword
proceeded out of his mouth, while his
voice was as tender and sweet as the
anthem of rippling waters.
"What could John do but fall at his
feet? This Is where all men who*really
see the Christ find themselves. Hut thu
right, hand that poised tho seven stars
in the vision is at once extended to lift
up tho discouraged and hopeless dis
ciple. It is surpassingly beautiful that
ho, who thus has all power, never falls
of sympathy with tho downcast and
"He could not bs hold by death, but
came forth from the grave conqueror.
]Jo showed that those who were Iden
tified with him would be alike victori
ous. Death to the child of God lfl
I robbed of Its power and the grave has
lost its gloom, for there Is shining Into
the farther side of Iho tomb the
rudlance of tho resurrected Lord.
"He laughs in the face of death and
suys he nan the keys to tho kingdom in
his glrdlo. When he ascended to glory
he led captivity captive and gave gifts
unto men. When the angels greeted
him with their welcome home he was
followed by a retinue of cuptlve evil
doors, the world, death, hades, thu
grave and the devil. Ho is loduy the
Hiipremp in authority, which will one
day bo rc-cotrnlaed." Before this Chrißt
we should be glad to prostrate our
selves and 'lay our trophies at his feet,
and crown him Lord of all.' "
SAYS ASCOT IS A MENACE
Rev. Robert Fisher Tell* of Evils of
the Park in Prelude to His
"Ascot Park" was tho topic of a
short prelude last evening by Rev.
Jtobcrt Fisher, pastor of St. James"
Methodist church, prefacing his even
inK sermon. Rev. Mr. Fisher said:
"Ascot park is a menaco to Los An-
KPles in every way, and Is also a
deadly menace to men who gamblo
there and do dishonest things under
ltn influence, and consequently all
lin slru?f>s suffers. : ' ■
"Ascot park is debauching to wo
men, who lose, their heads and tiro lod
;i stray. It is especially so for tho boys
and girls whose habits nre. not yet
formed. They bet whether ullowed to
attend or not. Honry Ward Beccher
said that breeding pood horses might
l>o ii good thing, but rather expensive
when It costs tho characters of men
"Five men in Los Angeles have tho
keeping of Ascot park under their
wing — tho five supervisors. Not all
theso are in favor of It, but the ma
jority are,' otherwise* it would bo übol-
i shed In an hour.
"Home corporations seem to bo more
iinxious to ring up the five cents of
the people, who ro to tho park than
lo think of the good of the city or the
upbuilding of manhood."

REV. J. M. NEWELL PREACHES
Tells Presbyterian Congrsgation That
Peopl« Are Far Too Prone to
Judge a Man by Hit
Rev. .T. M. Newell, pastor of the Be
thesda, Presbyterian church, preached
yesterday morning from the text, I
Samuel, 16:12, "And the Lord iald, arise
anoint him, for this la he." Ho eald
"God has glorified these old-time
stories. They are his great parables.
They thrill the thoughtful mind because
they are being re-enacted always here
before our eyes. Is Samuel sent out of
Ood to find a king and anoint him?
Well, that Is Just what the preacher
Is nent here for this morning. Ther».
Is nn unused crown here and an empty
throne, even as there was then, and
Clod gays to his prophets now aa lie
BRld to his prophets then: 'Go to that
congregation, fill their horns with oil,
for I have provided you a king among
"My friends, we are here on gre»t
business. We are ambassadors of
Christ. Through us God beseeches you
to take a crown. 'Tls a more glorious
crown than Samuel harl to offer to the
sons of Jesse at Dethlehem. Let us
sen how the search for a king went
on over there In Bethlehem and we will
have a picture of just what Is going
on here. Quite a congregation was that
company of brothers, the sons of Jesse.
A king must, be found right here and
now; who shall be the king? Alas!
only God knows that. Samuel knew a
good many things, but he must not
pick out the king. He was a God
taught man, and yet he can't help set
ting overvalue on outside appearance.
"Here first conies Ellab, the blgggest
of all the lot by a foot or two every
way; a towering fellow! What wonder
thot Samuel, bulng after all only n
man and judging as man Judges, should
set his eyes on this great physical
enormity and cry out: 'Surely this Is
the king I am to seek.' Many a. Time 1
wore the modern preacher fooled just
the same way. Ho sees the likely
looking man In his rongreatlon, tail,
stately, hlgh-browed, royally clad, with
courtly mannerH, proud of his character,
a success In life and the preacher says:
'Behold the king!'
"But Ood says: 'Stop Samuel. Btop
preachers, I oaro nothing for looks. I
see the heart. Thut tree Is rotten at
the core.' If Kliab failed because he
was big outward and little inwardly,
his brothers fulled perhaps because
they were Indifferent, unambitious,
timid nnd did not have energy to rise
up and take a thron? ; men and women
living merely to cat and sleep and do
life's common drudgery and satisfied
with life's trifling Joys and too unambi
tious to care whether there Is any
crown of glory or not. Will Ood throw
away a crown on a man who cares
nothing for it?
"But among all the brothers there
was one whom man might look on and
Ood might look through; a man of
faults, a sinner to be sure, but a man
of penitence and faith and aspirations,
not big oplnloned and big bodied like
Kliab, nor indifferent and earthly In
his tastes like the rest, but a man of
lowly and contrite heart and yet ready
to take the blood purchased crown of
glory and live for It and fight for it to
the last and wear it forever and ever.
If such is your mind, by God's author
ity I hand you a crown this day. You
will take it and wear It after all earth's
glory has turned to ashes."
