but no news of their arrival at that port
has been received. It does not follow,
however, that they did not put in there,
because the transports nave re

SERMONS ON MANY THEMES.
AT ST. PATRICK'S
The forty hours of devotion was in
augurated in St. Patrick's Church yester
day morning at the 11 o'clock mass with
solemn services. Solemn high mass was
celebrated by Father Cummings. He was
assisted by Father Barry as deacon; sub
deacon, Father Horan; master of ceremo
nies, Father Heslin. At the conclusion of
the mass the procession of the blehsea
secrament followed. Preceding the par
ticipants in the mass were the acolytes,
and behind them little girls dressed in
white. who strewed flowers In the aisles.
In the evening Father Heslin delivered
an Interesting sermon on the origin of the
forty hours of devotion and its meaning.
In part the holy father said:
The services of the forty hours of devo
tion are held in honor of the forty hours our
divine lord's body lay In the tomb. It was
introduced in this country about the year
].-; It lias been practiced in European
count for upward of 360: years. It first
had its origin In the city of Milan = in . I''7l1 ''7 l
In that year a terrible plague attacked the
city and the people were cast into terrible
fear bi-cause of the ravages the dread dis
ease was making among them and ti.e
recollection of a similar plague which de
vastated the city twelve years tore, carry
ing off nearly 120,000 inhabitants. At this
time th« <-lty was torn by internal feuds
and also threatened by an invading army in
command of the King of Naples, which had
surrounded Milan and threatened to cap
ture the city by laying siege.
In the cathedral in Milan there was a
pious priest, a Capucian, named J^^' l! ' °*
Fero who. seeine in the state of affairs the
lwnd' of God raised against the People,^
believing thai the vengeance which .the r
sins bad called forth could* be parted by
repenting of their sins a nd by Imploring
pardon nd mercy, like Jonas wit h the
ikinevites. he urged the people to do pen
ance in sack cloth and ashes.
\< a remedy for the evil and as a pro
tection from the threatened vengeance of
heaven, he suggested a devotion of tortv
hours in honor of the forty hours! our di
vine Savior lay In the tomb, while at the
s«me time they could adore the living
Savior in the adoration of the Euchriß^pub;
j C lj. posed for that purpose. The inhab
itants for man. s.-eing a release from mis
ery in the wise suggestions of the holy
priest, put his proposal? Into pract fe.£* n
front of the cathedral at M«lnp ""'''" ;•
sacrament was exposed for adoration ob ft
rlevated place, surrounded by a Kit al .i.ii
ber of lightsj All the inhabitant, of Milan,
the city" officials and the Cardinal Arch
blahOD took part in this devotion, being clad
nil sack cloth'aa a sip of their repentance.
When this devotion at the * cathedral was
con.-Mded it was celebrated in nil tni
churches of the city with as great zeal and
Pie" The effects of this devotion was soon
v sib y felt. Like the Slnevltes, the Ml
lanese by their sincere repentance obtained
pardon for their crimes, their prayers for
mer.-v and forgiveness were heard, the
plague ceased, internal dUsentlona were
changed into harmony and the hostile fee
ings of the opposing kings turned Into feel-
Ings of friendship, war was averted and

interesting sermon to the conprogation of
the Calvary Presbyterian Church yester
day morning. His subject was. "A * ure

The first half of the text is blue, the last
half bright, but I shall do my best to bring
a bright sermon out of the whole of it.
What a gloriously hoppful book the Bible
is. Hope runs though it like the river of
God whirh I* full of water. The man who
uttered i.ur text was unsatisfied and deeply
discouraged. Hut our text does not teach a
lesson of discouragement, but one 01 nope

on the rijrht word, "yet." We get dis

HOW MUCH IS MAN
BETTER THAN SHEEP?
Rev. J. George Gibson of the Emman
uel Baptist Church addressed a large
congregation last evening. He took his
text from Matthews, xii:l2: "How much,
then. is. a man better than a sheep?" He
said in part: •
Christ had no Intention to depreciate the
sheep He was too much of a Jew to do
that among Jews. lie knew the value of
the sheep commercially, and he knew its
importance religiously. The sheep was of
much value, but man was of more value,
and man's greater value can only be ap
preciated when we know the good parts ot
a sheep. In the Bible the natural world
and the human are brought together in the
sheep and the man. Almost the first story
speaks of the firstlings of .the nock and the
last on revelation of the lamb before the
Tbe sheep Is always rendering some ser
vice. It is always living for others. There
never seems to be a moment that it can call
Its own. If it eat, It is li-it after a while
it ay be slain. If it grows old, it Is that
it may give of its wool to keep others warm.
It is at the command of other?, it is at
the service of others. If it receives, it is In
order that it may give. To Itself the sheep
Is nothing. It is in the world for the world s
" Who lives the life of sacrifice willingly?
He is better than a sheep Who work and
lives and grows for ethers because he pre
fers to do so? He is better than a sheep.
But are there many such lives In the world.
yes there are many. There are fathers,
mothers and friends leading humble but
noble lives. Because they are not great
some have despised them. Their glory Is
that they are content to be despised. Pray
God we may have more such men and wo
men. Useful people are more needed than
great people or rich people, for sometimes
the rich are not so good as sheep, for they
live such selfish lives, and the world re
members them not by what they Rave away,
but what they were compelled to leave.
A SERMON ON HOVELS.
Rev. William Racier Discourses on
Their Vast Influence.
The Rev. William Rader delivered his
regular Sunday evening sermon last night
at the Third Congregational Church, tak- j
ing as his, text: "Therefore all thin?.' J
whatsoever ye would that, men should do i
unto you, do ye even so to them, tor this ;
is the": iv.- and the prophets."
The pastor's address was full of inter
est. He spoke of the novel and of Its vast j
Influence. He differentiated the various
classes of novels and discussed, as exem
plifying his text, the late book of uMward
Noves W'estcott, "David Harum. ' He
There Is more religion than we ordinarily
suppose in the commonplace of life. All

At the services of First of
Christ. Scientist, yesterday morning, a
large congregation listened to a sermon |
on "Life" from the text '-Thou wilt shew j
me the path of life; in thy presence is
fullness of |oy; at thy right hand there :
are pleasures for evermore," Psafrns,
xvi:2. The sermons in the Christian

passages from Science and Health with

She Thought Burglars
Were in the House.
A DOG SET OFF FALSE ALARM.
SHE DIED JUST AS ASSISTANCE
_ — « "
Deceased Was a Well Known and Suc
cessful Physician and Widow of
an Ex-Judge of the Su
Death called Dr. Mary C. Edmonds, a
well-known physician of this city, in trag
ic fashion at her home, 913 Bush street,
last evening. The accidental setting off of
a burglar alarm wrought up her nerves to
- such a strain that she suffered death by
fright. Being alone in her home at. the
time, the supposition is that a dog which
she kept for protection started up the
staircase, which contained the little elec
trical- appliance, connected the circuits
and sounded the false alarm, which
brought fatal results. The police were
prompt in responding, but could find no
traces of any intruder on the premises.
About 7 o'clock Mrs. Edmonds was seen
entering her house by Mrs. Mary Comp
ton, who resides at 911 Bush street Mrs.
Edmonds lived alone, and had evidently
just returned from her office at 330 Sutter
street. At 9:30 Mrs. Compton was startled
by the sound of a police whistle in the
neighborhood. She called to her son to
Step to the door and ascertain what the
cause of the trouble was. In the mean
time she went to the front upper window
of her house, and looking out saw Mrs.
Edmonds at a second story window lean
ing out and blowing a whistle.
Mrs. Compton called to the woman and
received the reply that there were bur
glars in the house. Realizing that some
thing should be done immediately, she
called to the unfortunate woman to keep
cool and then summoned help. T. Mac-row \
of 2712 Army street, who happened to be:
passing, and W. H. Kelley, a neighbor
two doors distant, quickly responded and
rushed up the steps to the door. They
found it locked and they were unable to
enter. Mrs. Compton called to Mrs. Ed
monds to come down and open the door,
and that there were friends near who
would render her assistance.
The doctress disappeared from the win
dow and the men waited at the door.
Soon It was opened and both gentlemen
sprang Inside, only to see the hapless
woman totter as if to fall. They caught
her in their arms, but her body became
limp and helpless, and they laid her on
the floor, where she soon expired.
The .sound of the alarm brought a num
ber of officers hurriedly to the scene.
From the Central Police Station came Of
ficer J. W. Davids and Officer William
Rice Both made an examination of the
premises and soon became satisfied that
the alarm had been a false one. There
was but one window open in the house,
I but an examination of the sill showed
| that the dust on it had not been disturbed
AN IDEAL MAYOR
Roy. J. H. Beard chose for the topic of
last night's discourse the "Ideal Mayor."
Grace Methodist Episcopal Church held a
large congregation, which gave close at
tention to the preacher. He selected
Nehemiah as his model Mayor and de
scribed in glowing terms the pious ;>;>tr:
otism of that time. Dr. Beard spoke in
part as follows:
Most people have been impressed with the
importance and influential position which
cities occupy in our modern life. We have
a parallel in ancient times, in Jerusalem,
and its relation to the Holy Land. In mod
ern times the lines of commerce center In
our cities— they are the points of intelli
gence, and so they have come to exert a
vast Influence. The responsibilities of citi
zenship in one of these centers increases ac

modern times is to pet Into positions of im

do this is th>- one preat defect of our mu
nicipalities. Seldom do we allow the office
to seek the man. This was strikingly il
lustrated In the array of candidates for
the Senatorship before the last Legislature.
We have had pood men In office in San
Francisco, but their efforts have been con

Courage and competence are other necessary
qualities In a good Mayor.
THE BICYCLE AS
A MORAL AGENT
Rev. W. E. Dugan of the Stewart Me
morial United Presbyterian Church used
the modern bicycle as the subject of his
sermon last evening and for the purpose
of pointing a moral. In part he said:
The wheel spoken of is God's wheel of
Providence, in creation and redemption.
A circle as represented by the wheel Is
the most beautiful figure and most graceful
curve, representing the beauf- of provi
dence. A curve Is also the figure of com
petition, system and harmony ?uch as we
have In the inward workings of the provi
dence of God. The wheel here stands as
a symbol of the chariot of victory upon
which Christ is riding to the millennium
But let us look at these words in refer-"
ence to the modern wheel, the bicycle. The
bicycle Is a moral agent In that It affords
healthful exercise. It la objected that it
takes people from church, but If people only
come to church because they cannot get
away, they had better stay at home. The
bicycle la a vivid illustration of the power
of a good habit. At first you plunge and
fall You are told to turn the front wheel
in the direction you are falling. You think
and stagger and sometimes go down, hut
by keeping at It after a while you instinct
ively turn the wheel the way you are going
to fall: you instinctively balance and swing
your body. What at first you had to do by
remembering the rule becomes a second
nature to you, so that you do It without
thinking. So with a good habit. At first
you must remember and try and struggle,
but after a while, if you keep on, it be
comes natural to go to church and pray
and do things that at first required a firm
The wheel calls for individual effort. There
Is no leaning upon the shoulder of another.
In riding a wheel you never stand still. To
ride very slowly is one of the tricks. You
must keep going or fall. So in morals. V

long been planning steps in this direction,
and three weeks ago he had a conference
with Rockefeller at Everett.
The Texedo mines produce hpssemer ore
containing * ;< i per cent Iron. Their product
was v.-cd at th" Port Townsend blast fur

which townsite he owns, or Tacoma. This
city has the advantage of the only coke
supply in the State and rolling mills
w 1 iicli furnish a market for pig iron.
This school will reopen on August 29. with
handsome new buildings heated by steam and
lighted by electricity. Every pupil has sepa-
rate room, choice of bedrooms on first and sec-
ond floors. Steam from outside, no furnace, no
