It was three years ago. I was sailing the

a novice; we did not have one good day

the waves never calmed. One evening as wo

WANT TO BLOW DP AN ANGEL
Factional Dissensions Among Baptist
Brethren and Sisters.
WRATH AGAINST THE PASTOR
One of the Host Indignant Female Kembers
of the Congregation Sayi Seep and Dark
Designs Are on Foot The Preacher Rot
at All Afraid of the Ontcsme.
The colored brethren and sisters of one of
the Baptist churches of Washington are at
loggerheads o er their preaoher. The camp
is divided into the Amorltes and Hlttites,
some for the preacher and others against him.
It seems that quite a faction are opposed to
the pastor's preaching, and various and
unique are the allegations made against it
Some of the brethren are stirred up into tur
bulence over the affair, and they aver that if
something doesn't come quick to heal the
breach, the church will be rent in twain,
and it will become as a thing of the past.
The opposition, however, assert with un
abated vehemence that the pastor Is the right
sort of a preacher, and they will stick 'to him
closer than glue.
There are charges and countor charges of
the pastor's derelictions In the discharge of
his ministerial functions, one member, a late
trustee, going so far as to asseverate that the
preacher had married minors. The pastor's
friends retaliate by denying the imputation,
but allege that the cx-trustee and his crowd
are concocting a lot of damaging stories to
degrade the preacher in the ej as of his con
gregation. Brother W., a prominent member of the
church, when asked yesterday what were the
objections to the preacher said:
SHOHT OH WIND.
"He'6 no good, he can't preacn. We want
a man that can preach. Preacher B. ain't got
a voice; something's wrong with his lungs;
he's short on wind."
The reporter queried whether there were
other faults along with these. very remarkable
ones. The reply was:
"Yes, Preactier B.'s an Interloper. He
come and took Preacher IL's job and now
our first pastor is sweeping out a store for a
livln'. Dcn't ou think that's shame. I
don't like a scab and I don't like scab preach
ing. If we can get Brother R. back into the
pulpit again you bet we'll do it."
Brother W.'s astounding objections led the
newspaper man to visit Sister jr., a friend of
Preacher B. When she was told that Brother
W. had openly and iciously decried Preacher
B.'s lungs she became furious, and snappishly
"No lungs, ave, plenty of lungs he's got.
We don't want a preacher who rips and roars,

castor oil to ease himself and setting every

Sister M. then rushed into a violent diatribe
against the malcontents, saying that for six
months they had been slowly putting dyna

will into ten thousand separate pieces.
She, however, affirmed that the major por

with keeping the pastor's children. At this
she was very angry, and remarked that her

Sister C. chimed in: "That's right, preacher;

Brother C.'s head off, that I would."
The pastor said in a solemn manner and In
an uncompromising attitude: "Sister C, hold
your tongue; don't interrupt me when fee
talking; it's a shame for you."
Ho then proceeded: "The malcontents in
my congregation are in the minority, and
when it come3 to a vote we'll snow 'em un

ter, whose anger was apparently unrestrained
and inconsolable. "Good, good."
"Sister C.,' remarked the pastor, "I must
take the gentleman out if you behave like

these disturbers are in the minority, and I'll
sea that they are turned out for dragging the
religion, the good religion, Into the mire and

Sister C. turned livid with contempt at the

better of the pastor's warning aud sho

FIVE ARTS OF LIFE.
Rev. Dr. Horton Tells of Helpful Ways of
Living and Doing.
Dr. Francis A. Horton, D. D., of Provi
dence, It. I., spoke before the Y. M. C. A.
yesterday attornoon' at 1.30 o'clock, on the
"Fh e Fine Arts of Life." The speaker chose
no text, but launched at once upon his dis
course, which was a most helpful and inter
The first of the five divisions of the sermon
was entitled "The art of forgetting disagree
able things." "This," said Dr. Horton, "is
both natural and unnatural. In looking to
ward the past wo are prone to remember only
the unpleasant things. It is quite natural.
We cannot school ourselves to forget, though
we may approach so noar the character of the
Christ man that we can forgive. We need to
cultivate the faculty of repressing the dis
agreeable remembrances. Thero Is no profit
in wilfully recalling evil. Do not chew the
cud of bitter recollection, but replace such
memories by good thoughts.
'Second fine art is that of enjoyment. Few
get out of life what has been put in it by God
for us. Compel each day to yield its full
measure of beauty and joy. Four men were
climbing one of the Swiss Alps. The first
enjoyed the scenery and felt perfectly happy.
The second had a thorn in his foot and
couldn't appreciate anything. The third had
seen a house somewhere that his covetous
heart lusted after, and he was not able to
enjoy the surroundings. Tho fourth was
afraid it was going to rain, and his foolish ap
prehensions prevented him from grasping the
wonders of God's handiwork. Contentment
nnd a clear conscience are the requisites for a
full enjoyment of this life.
"The fine art of health preserving Is to
firomluent little need be said of It. Plain
Ivlng and high thinking conduce to long life.
When the rum shops are not patronized the
death rate decreases. Work while jou work,
and die In the harness, but don't purr like a
cat in the chimney corner until a lingering'
old age takes jou off by degrees. Work till
the time comes and then go quick.
"How seldom we seo people who have cul
tivated the fine art of speaking pleasant
words. In company say the agreeable and
pleasant thing. In instruction, it is better to
commend thun to criticise. There are times
when the cheering word docs infinite good.
It is easy enough to cheer the President w hen
he comes down the steps from tho Capitol
and goes to the White House. Cheers are
cheap then. But when a man js down and
needs encouragement, how few give a cheer.
Most of us 'pas. by on the other side.'
"We should all know something of the fine
art of not expectlng'nnything. There are too
many Mlcawbers, who are only waiting for
something to turn up, nnd pass their lives In
mlserableinactivity. .Learn to expect nothing
but what you 'am by the sweat of your brow.
Earn all you get, and take no chances on for
tune. We should not expect anything but
that which has been promised and covenanted
to us. To do so Is to practice deceit on our
ISRAEL IN EGYPT.
Subject for an Interesting Discourse on
"Faith" by Rev. Charles Baldwin.
"By Faith" wns the theme of an interesting
discourse delivered last evening by the Rev.
Charles W. Baldwin, pastor of Wesley Meth
odist Episcopal church, at the corner of Fifth
and F streets northwest.
Mr. Bald jvln during the month of July has
been giving a series of illustrated sermons at
the Sunday evening service. The first of the
series was based upon "Scenes in the life of
Jacob," the next two upon "Scenes in the life
of Joseph," nnd tho fourth, given last even
ing, was upon "Israel In Egypt."
The speaker briefly traced the history of the
Hebrews from the death of Jacob to the time
when Moses and Aaron api eared before
Pharoah pleading for the liberation of their
"Joseph, the petted child of his father,"
said tho speaker, "was the instrument for the
preservation of Israel. He was sold by his
brethren, taken toEgypt, was sorely tempted,
thrown into prison, and alter a series of un
usual experiences was for a purpose raised to
a place of power In tho kingdom. It was 'by
faith' that he was ennbled to pursue the
course marked out for him and to become
the benefactor of his race. Moses was born
under the ban of an edict that required all
male children to be put to death.
"Seeing that he was a comply child, his
parents sought to save him. They committed
him to the tiny boat, and by faith placed him
where he would be discovered by the one who
would be least Inclined to do him injury. His
life was saved, no remained there forty
years, living the life of an Egyptian. Ho had
tho belief that his preservation meant that
God had a work for him to do. Suddenly he
committed an overt net against the law. In
anger he killed nn Egyptian who was abus
ing a Hebrew. Ho hid himself, engaging to
attend the flocks of Jcthro, tho Midlr.nlte,
and it was forty years mcro before God ap
peared to him in the burning bush and gave
him his instructions.
"It was faith all tho way through to that
point that sustained Moses. Ho was God's
chosen agent, though not such a man as He
desired him to be. He was to be purified and
ennobled. Tremblingly Moses suggested
that he might not be believed, and that he was
no talker. God told him to say, 'I am that I
am' hath sent me, and he gave him tho three
signs by which he should prove himself.
These were the rod that turned into a ser
pent, the leprous hand, and the water that
"Moses went forth upon his mission, met
Aaron, and together they sought to do the
duty with which they were charged. It was
faith that became their armor, their buckler
and shield, and gave them courage to appear
before the King."
A novel feature of the service was the use
of the stereopticon to illustrate the leading
points In the sermon. Large-sized views
were thrown upon a canvas placed back of
the pnlpit, each scene appearing at the mo
ment the speaker's reference to the topic re
quired it. Among tho views were the flguro
of a mummy discovered a short time since
and Identified as a king of the eighteenth
dynasty, Moses in the Ark, Miriam guarding
him, two scenes representing Pharaoh's
daughter rescuing Moses, the Bosetta Stone,
discovered In 1799; temple of Hamate,
temple of Medinet Abou, avenue of
the Sphinxes, Ipsimboul. or Abousimbel, a
small temple, a large temple, and a represen
tation of the famous colossus that weighed
900 tons, the foot of the colossus, the interior
of the great temple, and inscriptions on the
temple of Pakkeh in Nubia.
In addition to these scenes the hymns used
In the service were thrown upon the canvas
for the benefit of the audience, tho darkened
room preventing the use of the hymnal.
The last of this series of sermons will be
representative of tho "Passage of the Bed
Sea," and will be delivered next Sunday even

ettl, with a heavy sigh. "Alas, no human be
ing can tell! All we know is that the Semil
lante. laden with troops, left Toulon tho
evening before In bad weather. During the
night it grew worse wind, rain and a terri
ble sea. the like of which was never seen be
fore. In the morning the wind fell a little,
but the sea was worse, if possible, and with
it the devil's own fog, so that one could not
have distinguished a beacon light four feet
away. Those fogs, monsieur! You have no
idea how deceitful they are. But I also havo
an Idea that the Semillante must have lost her
helm in the morning, for the captain even in
a heavy fog could hardly have made such a
mistake. He was a well tried mariner. We
all knew him. He had commanded the Cor
slcan station for three years and knew the
coast as well as I, who know nothing else."
"At what time do you think the Semillante
"It must have been at noon yes, monsieur,
noon but, forsooth, with that fog that noon
was worth no more than a night as black as
the jaws of a wolf. A life saver of the coast
told me that the same day toward 11.30, hav
ing gone out of his cabin to fasten his shut
ters, the wind whirled away his cap, and at
the risk of being carried oil himself by the
blast he commenced to crawl along the beach
on all fours after it. You see the douaniers
aren't rich, and a cap costs. Well, It seems
that our man, lifting his head, saw right near
him through the fog a great ship scudding
along under bare poles toward the Lavezzi
islands. This ship went very fast, so fast that
he had hardly time for a good look. Every
thing leads to the belief that it was the Semil-

SEND THEM ALL TO WASHINGTON
The Commonweal Leader and Father HcOlynn
Address a Large Fopnlist Meeting No
Hope for the Industrial Masses Save in
the Success of the Fopnlist Party.
New York, July 22. Gen. J. S. Coxey, of
the army of the commonweal, was at Rldge
wood Park, L. I., to-day, whero a reception
was tendered him by the representatives of
the People's party, wh'o were holding a pic
nic there. Gen. Coxey made an address at the
big afternoon meeting.
"I represent a party," ho said, "that does
not want monoy that is redeemable in gold
exclusively, but money that Is redeemable in
everything that Is used in this country."
Gen. Coxey then unfolded the details of his
good roads scheme, which he said would give
employment to every workman in this,coun
try and make theUnited States the most power
ful country in tho world. He then took up
the railroad troubles, referring to George M.
Pullman as "King George IV."
"Let tho people of the United States con
demn tho railroads." said ho, "and compel
the government to buy them. If the railroad
people can condemn your property wh'en they
are building a railroad on the ground that it
is for the common benefit, you In turn should
condemn their property and operate the rail
roads for the common benefit of humanity."
SET THEM TO BCIEOINO JAILS.
Continuing, ho said: "The only place for
you to strike at is Washington. Go through
your public parks and marshal the tramps
and unemployed workmen, tell them the
cushions down iu Washington ure as soft as
they are bore, and tell them I have a plan to
feed them down thero. I don't mind telling
my plan. When tho men get down there
they will be sent to jail as I was. The jail In
Washington can only accommodate 300 per
sons. It is full now, so tho men will bare to
be put to work building jails to imprison
themselves in. If I cannot get them work at
one thing I can get thorn work at another."
In clossng the commonweal general again
urged upon his bearers to marshal the unem
ployed of New York and Brooklyn and march
in a body to Coneress and demand that the

"Resolved, That the time has come when
no further hope can be held out of any rem
edies for our present Industrial distress from
either tho Republican or the Democratic!
party; that they aro both dominated by the
money power; that they are both agreed on

contracting tbe currency to n point of Im

that they are one in tho matter of land
monopolies, theft of unearned incomes on
land values nnd refusal of State aid to tbe
unemplojed; In fact, in nil essential questions
which continue the present miserable condi
tions they aro meroly separated into two
wings through the necessity of waging a
sham battle for the division of spoils;

for the present inequality of conditions that
causes so much suffering and want is for the
industrial masses themselves to seize tho
government nnd administer it in tho sole in

It is generally known that women aro in the
majority in nearly all churches at any rate
in denominations. Many reasons are given
for this. Some say It is on account of her
sentimentnlism, the gentler sex having a
larger bump of this characteristic than man.
Her devotional nature, therefore, is more eas
ily played upon, and she becomes active in
the church. Others believe that it is cot from
auy innate cause at all. Not so many men are
church members, or even vttendants, simply
because affairs of tho world claim tbeir atten
tion and absorb their interest. However this
may be, tho women outnumber themen about
two to one. The Congregationalists find (and
doubtless the same thing Is true with regard
to the other denominations that the relative
proportion of the sexes in their churches is In
this ratio: Boston, 1 man to 2.11 women;
Cleveland, 1 man to 2.20 women; Chicago, 1
man to 1.83 women: Denver. 1 man to 1.97
women; San Francisco, 1 man to 1.71 women,

Nardi threw two or three tarred logs on
the embers, which quickly blazed again.
Lionetti continued: "The saddest part of
the story is yet to come. Three weeks before
the disaster a little cutter, which was going
to the Crimea, like the Eemillante, was
wrecked in the same way in nearly the same

crew nnd twenty soldiers who were on board.
We took them to Bonifacio and kept them

"Once thoroughly dry and on foot again
it was good-by good luck. They returned to
Toulon, from which port they embarked
again several days later for the Crimea. And
imagine on what ship! On the Semillante.
We found them all all twenty lying among
the dead just where we are cow. I picked up

blonde mustache, a stripling from Pari3,

She loses sight of the port. The sea Is bad,

"Bon voyage!" shouts that madman, tho
brigadier. But no one laughs now. A great
tumnlt on tho bridge. The fog prevents their
seeing ono another. The sailors go and come,
groping along frightened. The helm is gone.
It is impossible to guide the ship. The Semil
lante, adrift, flies before tho wind. It is at
this moment that the donanier sees her pass.
It is half after 11. Just ahead they hear, lite
the roar ol cannon, the breakers! The break

are going straight on tne rocks. The captain
goes down to his cabin. He comes up in a

In a ringing voioe the priest begins the prayer

before which tho vision of death has flashed.
It was thus that I passed the night dream
