BETTING ON GAMIS.
"Baseball and Public Morals" the Si
Subject of Rev. W. L. Seabrook's
Sermon on Sunday.
"Baseball and Public Morals," was
the theme of the Rev. W. L. Sea- N
brook's sermon at the Lutheran th
Church of the Redeemer on Sunday th
morning, being the first of three ser- as
mons which Mr. Seabrook will preach ar
upon great moral questions. Mr. se
Seabrook was followed with close at
attention by a large congregation. te
He directed his remarks against bet- o'
ting on baseball and against gamb- M
ling in any form. He said that he th
was influenced alone in what he was ol
going to say by a desire for the wel
fare of this community and the young m
men in it, and the old men as well, la
and he was prompted in his remarks se
by what he had seen and heard on in
the local baseball diamond and on the Iii
streets of Newberry during the past cl
two months. From the great book ai
of human life his text was taken. 01
In this community, said Mr. Sea
brook. baseball was having its influ- b<
ence on morals, public and private, a
and he was grieved to feel that this w
influence was not alone for good, but ti
that in one direction it was wholly N
for evil. Baseball per se, when w
played by gentlemen, as it was play
ed in the college games, had an in
fluence for good. It was not the la
fault of the game. It was of the vice 01
r evil of gambling, of which this a1
comm.unity was full, that he would tc
speak this morning. Nothing made d
man more heartless than the passion
of gambling-the finished gambler
was the most hardened creature on
the face of the earth. Gambling was F
more general today than ever before.
Every boy in the community, he be- -
lieved, was threatened today as never 7
before. Mr. Seabrook gave a number
of illustrations of the disastrous ends tl
to which gambling led, in one of his P
illustrations stating that, in the place a
where the happering was located, y
there were no little "semigambling g
hells there such as it is alleged are in %N
Newberry, but late at night behind y
the blinds could be seen the light n
which told of the progress of the i
game." Gamblir he said, was not
simply an evil .on account of the re
sults to which it led, but it was an
evil in itself. The game hadn't any- -
thing to do vith it, nor had the size V
of the stake. He knew men who
would not think *of going down
where there is an opportunity fot
men to play poker and play it, but.
they wouldn't hesitate somewhere
else to take a little bet on euchre or -
some game of that kind. The other '
day down here on the street, he had
seen a boy of about thirteen years of
age walk up to another boy of about -
the same age with a quarter of a dol
lar in his hand. and say, "cover it,"
and the other boy covered it. He had
covered a serpent, said Mr. Seabrook,
which would one day raise its head -
to bite him. He condemned gamb- c
ling as unmanly and as unchristian
and as a great evil. An organization.
which, within forty-eight hours after
it began its existence, had made it
necessary for a citizen of the com
munity to close his back doors to
keep his children from hearing "I'll
put a five on that," with an oath,
couldn't exist if it were composeA-d
only of men who do such things. He E
had been told there were little boys
betting on the girls' baseball game
the other afternoon. It was no won
der when their fathers had bet on the -
Mr. Seabrook was forceful and
calm and dispassionate in his rew
marks, and held the close attention
of his congregation.
The sufbjects of the remaining ser
ons will be. "The Temperance
Question and the Individual." and
The Social Evil."
Several dogs supposed to have gone
mad have been killed in the city dur
ing the past several days. One was
killed by the police officers on Friday
afternoon and another on Saturday

citement was created in West End 3
vhen it was stated that a dog with
the rabies had bitten a little negro.
child. The dog was chased and killed,
and another dog which it was thought
had been bitten by the mad dog was
also killed. Owners of dogs will find
it a wise policy to keep their dogs
