been ilrleti out of Kails. is to come over In
ltov. Klos began his sermon by saying-
"It Is the business of earnest men and
women In these tluu to com.cntr.itc their
forces, not on the KWth bittle, but on the
llrt. If a boj Is helped throiiRh his first
lesson and encouraged to stay b) the prob

S'Wtli lesson. If ,i boy pick, up a. biket of
chips faithfully and willingly, he cm be
ti listed to saw n cord of wood by and by.
And so when he conies to balance tho prob
ability or .t lie getting him out of a dif
ficulty. This but m ilies patent the fact
that the storm ccutci of our social mid
economic battles is the home. Hoboes,
tramps imd cilmlnals are our bi others
and if they had a fraction of the attention
pild to them when they wele joung that Is
paid to them when they commit a crime
there would be no hoboes or tianips. We
provide against thieves with bolts and
bars. '1 ho thieves of whom I shall tpeak
defy bolts and bar. Ileeause they aie to
Insidious, nnd the guardians of our voting
are often so careless, not one home In Kan
as Oily, but many, are being robbed of
their choicest and best bv these villains.
"The thli f of which I shall (-peak Is
gambling. 1 do not lefer to an i irticiitnt
kind, but rathei to the splilt of gambling,
which Is pervasive and on the Increase.

Home tinder the pninlrp iinil flu, iptnilillc
The sports and games of the Itonian south
were manly and ennobling then, befoie
Home became the mistress of the world.
IJut as wealth Increased and luturj be
came prevalent, the soldleiy even became
effemlnateil and in the time of Augustus,
In tho very .shadow of the eioss, the soldier-,
of I'ontlu l'llatn gambled foi the
ttinlo of the world's Kivlor. There are too
many analogies between Home and Amei
lca to mike a pitriot comfortable. We buy
and sell enormous quantities of bread
Muffs but we gamble In them, too; we
gamble In corn and wheal and In the
vveathei: we :peed our horses, not for ex
ercise, but to gamble on them; wo pliv our
great national game, even the college
game, under the eves of piofesslonal gam
blers, who have I'aptured them. Our bl
ejcle races are run, not in generous llval
rv, but to gamble on them. We eat and
pliy and work to gamble. We even cali
miirlige a lottery, ami. judging from the
number of divorces, it Is getting moic and
more rlskv to get mill led
"'Get mono; no muter how, but get It,'
Is the creed of the times. There are three
wavs of getting what we have not One Is
to work for It: one is to have It given to
us, and the third Is to steal It Oambllng
Is the father of the thlid wav Not content
to earn our money like 0111 fnthei- wo
must try to mike a fortune In a dnv In
America to-dav we are feeling the t erects
of thl:, gambling na. During the pist
year and a half our railroad securities have
got Into evil repute. Our bonds and slocks,
accepted by foreigners as good Investments,
have tieen intuined to us and hence the ex
cessive gold exports This, then. Is the
gambling spirit, tl.e deslte to get something
for nothing And In piopartlou as this
takes possession of men, In th it propor
tion will they become iemorselc-s in their
dealings. In Its gtosei forms we legit
ime gimblltig bv law and npplv pen titles
The temptation l insidious enough without
making It attractive No passion Is strong
er than the gambling pisslon when
"I have been informed there Is a poker
Joint running all the time almost within a
tone's throw of this chinch mil that mem
bers of families of this church are having
1her mono) stolen from them In the
gimblers v. no run tho pi ice I am Infoimed
ihat the Joint is In the real of the les
tnurant on Twentv-tblrd stieet between
Venn street and the Southwest boulevard
It Is safe to say Ihat the police know nil
about this place but thru the pronrletoi
have too much of a pull to be Interfeted
"Some time igo I made a visit to the
stall' line gambling places, across the lne
In Kansns, nnd If overs one could if how
tbo-e pla'es are urn thev would hive been
wiped out of existence loiu- before the leg
islature of Kansas wined them out the

visitor w is the difference between the pio
prletors and the people who were betting

proprletots wore the tine clothes and sport

frequenters paid Men who ought to have
gone stialght home from their work nnd
given their wives their wages wire there
put'ing their mones Into the pockets of the
gamblets who rin the til.ues
Hut the chief gnmbllng. as to Its bid
effects, Is not that which we apprehend by
1 iw but the feverish snlrlt of speculation
which leads men to exploit the povertv and
needs of men and (speculate on them.
To counterict this spirit we omiiot begin
too soon to leach mil chlldien thnt 'he that
will not work shall not eat ' That the onlv
wav to get money Is to earn It by hard
work I.et us tench them to keep as fir
