WHAT THE SCRIBES SEE AND HEAR
Rov. Powlok Proaohes an Interest
ing Sermon on Oonsoorntlon in
the Methodist Church.
A largo congregation in tho Methodist
Episcopal church listened last ovonlng to a
pormon on consecration from Romans
XI 1-1-2, "I boseech you theroforo.brothron,
by tbo mercies of God that yo present your
bodios a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable
unto God which is your reasonable sorvico.
And bo not conformed to this world but bo
yo transformed by tho renewing of your
mind." Wo havo no proof that St. 1'oter
ovor saw Rome. Tho Roman church was
probably founded by porsons who woro
convorted at Jerusalem on tho day of Pen
tocost. Tho noed of apostolic c unsels led
St. Paul to address them in this op'utlo.
Ho uses tho morcles of God as an argument
In favor of thorough dodication to God.
Tho consciousness of God's goodnoss in
dolivoring us from sin, should lead us to do
tho same. When "attitude, latitudo and
platitude" becomo tho substituto for ex
perimental religion and hell begins to
spew, as it did to-day, and mon rovol in its
vomit, it is high timo for God's children to
botake thcmsolvos to prayer and to present
their wholo powers as living sacrifices to
God. Wo aro not called on to dlo for rO'
ligion but to live for it. To oxomplify its
principles and illustrato its doctrines In our
daily lifa. Conformity to tho world is in
consistent with tho obligation laid upon us
It is often difficult to seo the difference be
tween tho dally llfo of professors and un-
professors of religion. It is a disgraco to a
religious man to bo governed by tho spirit
of tho ago and to chorish tho samo am
bitions and possess tho samo aims as men of
tho world such rollgion is vain. It was
mado tho plain duty of tho christians of
Rome, as it is of those of Shonandoah, to
be transformed transfigured changed and
mado different from othor men in their
aims, principles, ffurposos, habits, etc.
And when such fruits do not appear in
thoir lifa it is becaueo thoy aro degenerato
sons and daughtors of a lifeless creed. Ono
of tho roproacho3of our ago is that in tho
Bacrod name of religion morality is often
crucified by its own votaries. St. Paul
says to Romo and to christians of overy ago
and ovory clime: "Bo not confortnod to
this world." Llvo abovo it. Bo superior
to it. Do not imitate iU methods. Rofaso
to resort to its expedients. But what ro
sponso doos Rome and the rest of tho
world mako? A religion that does not
mako men bottor than tboso who aro with
out it is worthless. And religious instruc
tions that bid defiance to thoso apostolic
admonitions aro a delusion and a snare.

Betterldgo is mado to Fay that ho was awaro
that such a petition was to be presented to
council ovor a weok previous to its ap
pearanco. Now, I am In a position to
know that tho black-mailing triumvirs
havo caused Mr. B. to toll an untruth.
Tho Kewi little coterio of followers may

as a moro' tool by which to show thoir
hatred for the P. 0. S. of A. and tho Jr,

appear that tho societies in quoslion woro
opposed to tho dedication. Such was not
tho case, as a perusal of the petition will
provo. Thoy merely and justly, too-
protested against the playing of bands of
music on our streets. To show that it is
not an interference with their rollgious
worship, the authorities in Mahanoy City
took similar action and stopped tho bands,
yet tho Polish church of that town was
duly dodicatod. Perhaps Mr. B. could ox-
pUin how this is an interference with their
rollgious worship. Justice.

tho oxception of tho timo when half tho

such a crowd in tho town. Tho only
somblanco of tho Sabbath was tho closed
(front) doors of tho saloons and tho oc
ca;ional ringing of church bolls, but tho
sounds of tho latter woro frequently
drowned by tho music of tho bands. Tho

Tho traffic ovor tho Lehigh Valloy rail

witnessed tho doparturo of tho visitors woro
surprised that tho accidents did not roll up
by scores. Tho Lehigh Valloy depot,

and it was only with groat difficulty that
tho tracks could bo cleared to mako room
for trains to pull up to tho platform. Those
who havo been at Coney Island or Long

a scramble for tho last boat can form but a
