exercised yesterday when it was learned
threats had been made to do serious

auditorium tomorrow and Thursday
nights in her entertainment entitled
"Death of Modern Spiritualism."

in Los Angeles and also to Anna Eva

'Anna Eva Fay denies she ever pre
tended to be a spirit medium.
The spirit mediums in Los Angeles
viewed the challenges of Miss Cleves
with alarm, for they realized that with
the exposure of the cabinet work, slate

takers and spook raisers would be shut
Finds Threatening Letters
Yesterday morning Miss Cleves found
two letters at the door of her rooms, and
they contained the direst threats if Miss
Cleves publicly exposed the tricks of the
fakers and spook raisers. The letters
were anonymous, one being signed "A

Miss Cleves was not alarmed by the
threatening letters and declined to take

Mark Every Anniversary, So Those
Who Follow May Profit, Advises
Rev, Dr. Henry at First
"Milestones for the New Year" was
Dr. Henry's topic at the First Baptist
church last night.
"Some one has said every anniversary
is a milestone from where to where,"
he said. "Life Is a pilgrimage and there
are two ways over which men travel
from the cradle to the grave. One is evil
and broad; the other is holy and nar
row and leads to everlasting life.
"The injunction of the text Is to erect
milestone along life's highway, not.
'only to indicate the progress we have
made, but to guide and direct those who
follow us upon the way. There Is a
highway of holiness, v new anil living
way that has been opened up from earth
to heaven and from the soul to the
Saviour of men.
"This Is so plain that a wayfaring
man, though a fool, need not err thero

marks of salvation. These signboards
are so significant that every individual
who passes them may infallibly know
that he Is on the way from earth, to

year, with a heart full of holy, resolve
and heavenly aspiration, it can only be
profitable for us to contemplate person
ally and prayerfully some of these guide
posts in the way of God and glory.
First of these waymarlts is genuine re
pentance toward God.
"True repentance implies not only a
knowledge and a confession of sin but
a positive forsaking of all known moral
evil. Jt means that we should 'cease to
do evil;' that we should cut short all
sin in righteousness. The only infallible
test of a Godly repentance Is the per
sonal and promt abandonment of wrong
"As we enter upon the new year the
first requirement of every Individual life
is that the black, broken and guilty
past shall be adequately dealt with. God
stands ready and pledged to do this upon
the sole ground that we are willing to

and to -surrender all known sin."

During the present year the Lake Shore
& Michigan Southern has been doing
some extensive work In the construction
of track troughs on Us main line between
Chicago and Buffalo, and it now has
eleven such water stations where the
locomotives can scoop up water while
going at forty to sixty miles an hour.
These troughs are placed about fifty
miles apart. They are 2000 feet long,
about two feet wide and six inches deep,
and they cost approximately $100,000 each.
The high cost Is due to the fact that the
'ground must be excavated six to eight
feet, the bottom filled with large stone.
and then with smaller stone and liner
material above, so that this portion of
the track is thoroughly drained and not
liable to heave In freezing weather. The
water is supplied by gravity from large
tanks situated near by, and these are
supplied by pumps from wells or adjpln-
Ing streams. The water must bo warmed
In large boilers to prevent freezing In the
troughs. The supply pipes are large, so
that the troughs will fill quickly, and,
are equipped with automatic valves,
which shut off when full. While the ten
ders hold 8000 gallons of water, the
amount taken from itte trough is usually
3000 to 4000 gallons.
Right you are, Alonzo; the fountain
plays because the water works.— Chicago

SUBJECT OF SERMON
Rev. Robert J. Burdette Preaches In.
teresting Sermon to Large Con.
gregation at Temple Bap.
At the Temple Baptist church yes
terday the pastor, Robert J. Burdette,
preached on the topic "Shadows and
Echoes," taking for .his text "For we
are but of yesterday, and know noth
ing, because our days upon earth are
"We are accustomed to connect
shadows with gloom and sadness," he
said. "We think of the 'solemn shades
of endless night,' we associate 'shades'
with ghosts of the departed; there Is
a certain gloomy terror In the world.
'Shadows tonight' cries the guilty kind,
'have struck more terror to the soul
of Richard than can the substance of
10,000 soldiers.' 'Let us seek out some
desolate shade' moans Malcom, 'and
there weep our sad bosoms empty.'
"But always the shadow proves a
light. It declares a substance. It
defines form. It emphasizes solidity
and depth. It carries the long per
spective beyond sense into the bound
less of imagination. And the shadows
may be beautiful, even as they are
beautiflers of the day and the world.
"As I look out of my study windows
my eyes rest upon the Sierras. It is
noontide, and sunshine floods the
mountains with radiance. But it de
stroys much of their beauty and gran
deur and Impressive sublimity. The
great range Is simply an enormous
wall; the serrated sky-line fades Into
the light, blending with the skies that
veil its sharpness with the very In
tensity of the sunshine.
Sun Calls Forth Shadows
"But wait — the descending sun calls
forth the shadows from their noontime
hiding places. Every canon Is painted
darkly against the light; every hill
lifts Itself boldly; every trail gleams
clearly against the climbing shadows,
cool and quiet and tranquil, the unseen
valleys, unseen when flooded with the
noontide, nestle against their encirc
ling mountains; the foothills, scarce
distinguishable from the valley levels
in the blinding light now lift them
selves in the. beauty of dark green or
ange groves and the dove gray orna
ture of the olive orchards above the
spreading plains; crag and peak, witn
the glow of the sunset on their faces
and the twilight shadows thrown like
cloaks of sable around their massy
shoulders rise like giants from their
couches; the whole range, clear as a
cameo cutting, stands out against the
opal of the evening heavens mountains
and monuments of God.
"For the shadows are gray and blue
and green and black and purple.
Tower and battlement arise in grace
and majesty; profound depths of black
ness outline the trails of changing
light; a sunset tint like an opening
rose touches the stony face of a cliff
with beautiful tenderness. How royal
in their beauty are the mountains
when the shadows come to robe them
in their garments of splendor and
jewels of glory, to watch the king of
the day pass on Into his throne room
In the west, and sec the queen of the
night enter Into her realm with all
tho starry battalions making her reign
glorious wtth the majesty of night ana
"How tame and flat the world of
beauty would be without Its shadows!
Such are the shadows which glorify
our lives; that make our yesetrdays
"These are the somber shadings of
sorrow: these the hard lines of bitter
disappointments; here the gray
touches of lonollness; this shadow fell
from a passing cloud of doubt; this Is
a mist-cloud of perplexity; this a dull,
blinding fog-bank of unbelief; this
was a storm of agony in. some sore
bereavement; this was a dust-rago
blown in from the desert by the resf
"Now look back at them as the sun
goes down In glory. How soft and
tender are the blending shadows,
kissed by the sunset into gray and
purple, gold and rose.
"How tlm love of God transfigures
the shadows that fell across the way
of our pilgrimage. In his vision of
heaven John saw 'a great multitude
which no man could number, out of
(-very notion and of all tribes and
peoples- nnd tongues, nrrayorl in White
ro brs' — so dazzllngly white — their
whiteness was radiantly splendid even
In that land of shadowleas light. And
thrso were they that came out of great
tribulation and had made their robes
white by washings in blood."
