Pu:s. April -M. -The arrest of the French
commissary, Schnaehles, by the German
Ik dice, after he had been decoy ed over the
frontier, is regarded as a serious matter, in
oflicial circles. SI. Colielet, prime minister,
and M. Flourvns. foreign minister, were in
conference until midnight last night for the
purjHise of determining what action they
should take in the premises, and they again
met this morning to further consider the
subject. The J'ulr says that the govern
meut has demanded an explanation of the
arn-st from Germany.
The French newspapers generally regard
the occurrence a a direct provocation on
Germany's part, and exhort the people to

coming town of Ohio.
They hae natural gas up there, and real
estate is sailing away to iuiossible prices.
A prominent Springfield manufacturer who
recently returned from Howling Green said
to a Kkitiii.h reporter today
"For the sake of the many young men
in this city who are on the point of drop
ping the little money they have saved up
from salaries into the insatiable maw of the
ieal estate men at Howling Green, you
newspaper men ought to show the place up
in its true light. It Is the biggest fraud in
the country. It isn't as large or as good a
town as Yellow Springs. Eight of us
young men from Springfield formed a syn
dicate and went up there for the pur
pose of putting some money Into
land as an investment. Happily we soon
got on to the true character of the place and
didn't drop anything. The real estate men
have everything their own sweet way, and
are running things with a high hand. For
instance, they send themselves bogus tele
grams from great manufacturing concenisai
over the country, asking the prospvts for
locating there. Of course, when these tel
egrams are read at the hotels the dupes buy
up land at once at great prices. I
saw one little piece of land two squares
from the hotel, sell for a cool S21.000.
Think of it! That awful price for a little
bit of ground in a country town. One of
the real estate men wauted one of the
Springtieiders to go home ami write back a
letter, saying that the Champion Machine
Co. wanted to come to Howling Green to
hvate. Of course the Springfielder
indignantly refused to be a
party to the dirty business. They have a
"glass works' up there about which they
never cease to bra-. It consists of a few
car loads of stone for the foundation. The
whole place Is a dismal farce, boomed by
unscrupulous real estate jackals for personal
gain. Young Springfield men want to steer
clear of it. I know one man from town
here who has 320,000 invested, and the way
that man is legging around to get clear is a
caution. Hang Howling Gieen!"

The sKirting fraternity of Springfield
had a little scheme on foot last night
which, had it not miscarried, would have
afforded the boys some exciting amusement.
About three months ago, it will tie remem

Kesidents 01 Yellow Springs stieet, near
High, were amply repaid for the trouble of
being alive yesjerday afternoon. It was one
of those little street dramas which do not
excite, but vastly interest. A colored man,
within a pair of blueoveralls stuffed into hi
Units and a hat considerably absent aliout
the crown, was engaged in conducting a
four-horse team. He was fully impressed
witli the importance of his task, and the
necessity for dignity. The four animals
were hitched to a large wagon. Imperfectly
floored, alter the stle such wagons
alfect. He was seated across one horse
and a little pickinniny, with more white
than yolk to his eyes, bestrode another.
Three of the horses were ' plugs, but the
fourth was a frisky oung colt. This colt
reared and plunged, tried to catch his front
feet in the crupjier and finally fell down.
Colored man was mad. He tried to get
the horse up by clucking at It. and impor
tuning it to "g'up, v' fool," but the colt
couldn't. It was painful to isee how much
the colored man hated to climb oil the
horse, and his lips shot ahead
of Ins face several f inches in
a crude attempt at a sulky pout, as he slid
off the horse. Then he fell to larruping
the prostrate colt. Then as four little boys
who were interested on-lookers raised a
low murmur of disapproval, the man
wheeled around and stared at them.
"I.ook heah, boys,"' he said, "don' go
foolin' round 'id me. l's no c'dition stan'
it. Yo' keep yo' mouth outn dls. I'll
ten' dis colt, or I'll brake ev'bone his back.
Yo' don' know nothin' bout 'dis case, and

about." Yo' too ig'n'ant t' give me any
'dvice. Yo' heah inc."
He waited a minute with a very scenic
expression and glowered at the boys, but
l hey said nothing. Then he. helped the
colt up, and gae it three good cracks for
causing him the trouble. Tlds gratuitous
chastisement moved the lioys. They got
oft a safe distance, and then announced in
chorus that in their united and several esti

cannot be enforced by censure, vioience.os
tracism or iiersectition. Men go into the
kingdom of Ood freely and gladly and no

that surplus wealth must lie used for the

mass of exquisite cut flowers and
potted plants, whose delicate odor
made the church-room fragrant. After
some very finaiuiisic by the Second church
choir, the installation sermon was preached
by the moderator, Kev. Dr. DeVeuve, from
the text, "We beseech you, brethren, to
know them which labor among you, and
esteem them very highly in love for their
work's sake" 1st Thess. 5 : 12. The ser
mon was a ttrong and eloquent plea for the
Christian ministry its scriptural warrant
its necessary' relation to tin- organization
and growth of the church. The distinction
between the "priesthood of all saints" and
the office of the pastor, was forcibly pre
sented, and the nonscripturar" and illogical
position-of the "Plymouth brethren" Idea,
exposed. The absurdity of insisting uiion
the "literal simplicities" of the early church
amid the developments of modern church
life and institutions was well brought out.
The two things specially dwelt upon in
siieaking of the duties of the congregation
toward the pastor were (1) competent sup
port, financial and moral; (2) sympathy
with him in his work. It is easy to estein
a genial man of manly qualities, but the
rule requires that not the man so much as
the minister be esteemed "for his work's
sake." Some good ministers may lack some
social and other qualities.
The sermon was one of unusual excel
lence, and Dr. DeVeuve will not lack an
audience should he again preach in Spring
field. The constitutional questions were then
put, first to the pastor-elect (Dr. Fullerton)
and then to the congregation, all of which
were heartily answered in the afiirmatlve'of
both parties. The installation prayer was.

Kev. Dr. Falconer, pastor of the First
Presbyterian church, followed In an address
to the pastor, pointing out his obligations
and relations to his people. Addressing
Dr. Fullerton, he said, iu substance: You

your church and the world. If you can con

than all the rest beside.

three departments in the session, in the

vigorous without cant and full of the pure

combined. You may have all the powers
necessary as a pastor and moderator, but
you cannot be a successful Presbyterian
minister without strength in the pulpit.
Let vour sermons teach the rightly divined
wonl of God -the truth as revealed. Avoid
trifling questions in the pulpit and subordi

and purity of the world you teach.
Dr. Falconer arrayed himself, generally
speaking, against the evangelist. Three
or four years ago, the evangelist appeared
on the great moving stage ot the world with
the avowed Intention of Improving existing
methods of saving souls. Judging by re
sults, the evangelist has been weighed in
Evangelism hxs its place, but to be effect
ive it must be rigorously confined to that
place by the church. The evangel
ist has done harm to the church.
Trust no Irresponsible agencies. Have
thorough system. The theory' that
system destroys liberality of thought, is
untrue and unsound on its own face. Sj's
tem Is not empiric The dogmas in the
NewTestament are not the dogmatism railed
at by the church demagogues. A few texts,
a little sounding cant, a few pertinent and
happy illustrations may do for awhile. A
handful ot shavings may make a bright
blaze, but It takes the steadily-burning log
of God's pure wonl to warm the room to
warm the soul.
A mere abstract cannot do justice to Dr.
Falconer's stirring and eloquent sermon,
which though brief, was one of his best ef
forts. Dr. Falconer has seldom been
heard to better advantage in Springfield,
and the vast audience was much moved by
After a hymn by the choir, Kev. George
E. Oowdy, of New Carlisle, delivered the
charge to the congregation. He congratu
lated the members of the church on the ac
quisition of Dr. Fullerton, who had been
the beloved pastor of the speaker at Lane
seminary. Kev. Mr. Gowdy extended con
gratulations on the relations now fully
established between pastor and flock. Tak
ing as a text I Corinthians xvi: 10,
"See that he be with you with

work of the Lord," the speaker
beautifully exhorted the congregation to
