WORKS OF LOVE IX THE WORLD
The Instructive, Impressive Ser
mon of -Dr. Smith at the Peo
At 10:30 yesterday Dr. Smith
preached to a large congregation
from the text Hosea vi., 3. The
discourse was a very able one. The
talented basso of the choir of St.
Paul's Universalist church, Chicago,
William Alton Denich, pleased the
congregation with his solos, singing
the profound "The Coming of the
King." In the evening Rev. C. H.
Fenn delivered a sermon especially
to the young people that was full
of sound practical advice. The fol
lowing is Dr. Smith's sermon:
Hosea vi., 3: "Then shall we know
if we follow on to know the Lord,
his going forth is prepared as the
morning, and He shall come upon
us as the rain, as the early and the
latter rain upon the earth." The
mission of the prophet is carefully
marked on* from that of the priest
or the king. The priest has gov
erned the church, and the king has
governed the state, while the prophet
has furnished the principles both con
structive and destructive which have
created empires or overthrown dy
It is a foolish mistake to describe
a prophet as a foreteller of the future
and then calculate his power by the
number of his predictions that have
been fulfilled. The future was never
to the prophet more than a fore
ground for the mighty present, and
his word was to his own generation.
His word of warning or of promise
he emphasized by an appeal to his
tory and a moral command of the
future. The prophet was seer, mes
senger, proclaimer. He had caught
sight of the moral glory of life, of
nature, of politics. With burning
lips he sought to spell out in human
words as well as he might, things
hard indeed to hear, but more diffi
cult of utterance. Two principles, it
seems to me, will furnish an ex
planation of all that the Hebrew
prophets had to say. They believed
in the doom of — evil counsels,
evil actions, evil men. They be
lieved in the triumph of good over
men, over nations, everywhere in
God's world. Given these two prin
ciples with which to read, and all
the dark sayings of the holy men of
old become clear.
The special office of the prophet of
modern times may seem to be done
away. At least it is disguised, but
today as always, it is the man who
believes that what ought to be, will
be, who leads us in business, who
masters us in statecraft and who
guides us in religion. Cavour was a
prophet in this sense, and so was
John Knox. Our teacher this morn
ing gives the secret of the prophetic
message and power. His word is
a passage from the psalm of the
good. He believes in providence.
He tells us why. - ,*7 - :7.7, a ' 7;
The prophet bases his work on the
conviction that there is a God whom
we may know, and knowing may be
lieve in. 7.7-
In the realm of the understanding
modern knowledge has wonderfully
multiplied our arguments for God. The
flowers bloom in arithmetical numbers;
the feathers of the bird's wing are
counted; living things are fertilizers
of plants; the whole sky is a black
board on which a Divine Hand writes
problems with suns for characters, il
lustrating the problems of the higher
mathematics. This form of argument
is stronger today than ever. The
Maker of the universe was a scientific
mind as well as a mighty power. This
Is the revelation of God to the man
of learning, and by him to all other
men. But the prophetic appeal lies to
each individual. It is not a race revel
ation within the scope of culture, but
a revelation to each individual in the
home of the heart, the higher reason of
the soul. The man who does not know
God is out of harmony with the world
in which he lives. The senses reveal
the world of matter, but religious ex
perience Is a higher sort of sense per
ception, it is the perception of what
is blindly called the supernatural. But
the supernatural is not the unreal, it
is the only vital world. It is har
monious with law. It is as full of
•-najesty as it is. of power. It is the
being of God and the spiritual mani
festation of God. Man is made for
truth. The senses report to us what
we can at length depend upon in the
world of phenomena The opinions of
the individual are corrected by the
experiences of the race, and so we
live in relation to the material world.
Man is made for this universal divine
world. It reports itself to the soul.
It comes in the voices of his moral
being, in the vision of his inner life.
So does he know God— not because he
is a scientist or a logician, but because
he is a man. This prophet evidently
had in mind an expanding soul, for he
talks of a growing vision. Then shall
we know if we follow on to know the
Lord. There is a historical picture of
what is meant in the development of
Moses. Shepherd as he had become,
called one day into the heights of
Horeb, he saw a bush burn uncon
sumed. Let us not wonder overmuch
at his privilege-such sights in truth
await us all, if we have eyes to see.
This man grew reverent and hid his
face, for ho durst not look upon God
That was at the sight of a bush that
burned and was not consumed. But
this man went down into Egypt. In
straggle, in plagues, in flight, and in
leadership in the wilderness he was
learning more about God. Unmoved
was he now when the holy pillar of
fire guarded his people by night or
changed to cloud gave them direction
by day. Ripened by all his experi
ences at length he finds himself once
more in the rocky fastnesses, and now
he goes up on the mountain top, while
the clouds shut him in that he may
talk with God. The rapture has en
larged his soul, and at length in the
consuming passion of his worship, h
cries out, "I beseech thee, Oh God
show me thy glory!" And this was the
man who began by hiding his eyes
when a bush burned 'and was not con
sumed. So we in the beginnings of
spiritual. life are divided between fear
and T doubt at„all the manifestations of
our Father. But when taught at
■length by our toil, by our tears, by
our joys, we learn i through the years
no longer to be afraid. We come to
that perfect love that casteth out fear.

A FAREWELL SERMON
Before the Christian Scientists
by Rev. Frank E. Mason.
Rev. Frank E. Mason, of Brooklyn,
N.Y., preached a farewell sermon yes
terday morning in the Globe building
before the Christian Scientists. His
subject was "The Tenets of Our
Faith." He said in brief: "It is al
most impossible to ascribe any name
to a religion that is in a constant
state of transition. Whatever stands
still long enough to get a definite name,
has ceased to progress. We are simply
seekers after truth wherever it may be
found, whether in Paganism or Chris
tianity, in external nature or in the
monitions of the mind. Truth is
truth irrespective of human whims.
Wherever the sunlight of infinite good
ness penetrates, there is found a leaf
from the great universal Bible. Where
ever goodness is expressed, there the
children of God find the bud and
blossom of spiritual parfectness. The
holy resurrection is the unfoldment of
the Christ in the Individual mind. The
only true baptism is the submersion of
the mind in spiritual thought. The
only atonement is the identification of
the mind with God, the atonement
of God and man. The only true com
munion is the unceasing intercourse
with spiritual law. The human phase
of life is llligitimate. From the hu
man estimation of life proceed all dis
cord. Man Is a spiritual creature and
the establishment in mind of the spir
itual base of life, will antidote all dis
cord, disease and death. Discord is
the phenomena of ignorance. Peace
and perfection are the reward of spir
itual mindedness. Man must change
the base of his thoughts if he would
successfully cope with the mutations
which obtain under the mortal sense
of life. Ignorance Is the devil of this
world. Intelligence is the Savior.

The Able and Thoughtful Sermon
of Father Lavvler Delivered"" *
• Yesterday.'.-."-/* "' '77
Rev. Frank Lawler delivered a
very lucid and thoughtful discourse
yesterday upon the subject, "Beyond
Our Ken." It is well worth a careful
Mysteries are inseparable from a su
pernatural religion. The truths of the :
higher world cannot be subjected to
the scalpel and the microscope. The
mysteriousness of Christianity is not
an objection to it, but rather a pre
sumption in its favor. How could it'
but be mysterious If it is a message,
from a supernatural world? How could
it be otherwise if it tells of the soul,
of eternity, of God? Christianity is
full of mysteries. It is a grand se
ries of them from the crib of ' Bethle
hem to the throne of the august Trin
ity. What are mysteries? They are
not palpable absurdities. They are
not against reason, but beyond it.
A contradiction of reason is not a
truth. Reason and revelation both
come frorh God and are not at war.
They are not doctrines wholly unintel
ligible. An entirely unmeaning asser
tion could not be the object of an in
tellectual act. They are religious
truths partly comprehended and part
ly beyond the grasp of the mind. God
in His revelation has discovered their
existence to us, but by no process of
reasoning can we fully comprehend
how they exist. That they are we
know from God's word, but how they
exist outmeasures our intelligence.
Other hidden truths may become clear,
but of religious mysteries we must say
that there will never come a time
when they will be solved. Though they
defy solution, they are not all dark
ness. What would we have known
without them? What would we have
known of the future life, of man's des
tiny, of eternity, of God? As the tele
scope aids us to learn something of
the realms above us so revelation af
fords us a glimpse of the realities be
yond the stars. The
TRUTHS OF REVELATION
are so many rays of heavenly light to
guide man through the obscure path-;
ways of life back to the mansions of
his Father's house. If God is so boun
tiful as to give us such glimpses of the
world beyond why are weak mortals
so thoughtless, so unreasonable as to
demand the full flood of heavenly light
which they are a myriad times less
capable of receiving than the dewdrop
is capable of containing the ocean.
Are these mysteries? To ask whether
mysteries exist in religion is to ask
whether God knows more than man.
As soon as God condescends to make
known facts about Himself, as soon
as we read In the Bible about the Di
vine attributes, about Infinitude and
liberty and Immensity and eternity
and immutability, so soon must there
be mysteries. Reason which is crea
ted and limited can never be the meas
ure of truths which are supernatural
and infinite. Who will deny that the
scholar is able to reveal hundreds of
things which are obscure to the 1 un
lettered. If so, if one human intellect
is capable of containing natural truths
which are hidden from another shall
not the Divine intellect contain truths
concerning the higher world which the
creature is unable to fathom? Mark
this difference. Though the ignorant
man may dispel his darkness and see
clearly what was before Inexplicable
to him, the true, religious mystery will
never be adequately comprehended
never cleared up, although the human
mind be raised to its highest possible
development. Study as we will, ad
vance as we may, the number of mys
terious supernatural realities will
never be decreased by a single one
There are two essentially different
fields of knowledge. There is the do
main of natural truth. There is the
order of supernaural truth. The first
is the province of reason, the other
belongs to faith.
The assertion that Christianity is
full of mysteries may sound strange
in view of the fact that it has so
much revelation, but it is -profoundly
true. Revelation, if it be supernat
ural, implies mystery, not denies it If
Christianity had no mysteries It would
be false. If the human mind could
fully grasp th© divine nature,^ God
would cease to be God and man would
no longer be a created being. Why
has Christianity so many mysterious
truths, if not for the simple reason
that it has so much revelation? Mys
tery is the accompaniment of knowl
edge. The more we learn the more
difficulties we will have. So in re
ligion. If we did not -r
KNOW FROM REVELATION
that there are three persons in one
God there would be one mystery less
but our knowledge would be less as
well. If we never heard that Christ
became man for our salvation the
mystery of the incarnation would be
a nonentity for us. -7-"-y.y
When you hear people boast that
they want no mysteries in their re
ligion assure them that such a home
made creed would be senseless, and
soulless and Godless. They are in
consistent to reject what the spark of
human intelligence cannot illumine'
Are they so exacting elsewhere? Thei?
reluctance to accept religious truths''
because they are Impervious to rea- ;
son would not be so surprising were
they but consistent Why, myriads of*
things surround them, the fact of
whose existence they know and ad- •
mit, but whose mode of being they are"
powerless to explain. In the material
universe there are mysteries in the air
we breathe, in the sunlight which en- "
velops U3, in the flower by the road-,'
side, in the tiny drop of water and irty
the little grain of sand-everywhere.
True, reason may go far into the 1 /
realm of phenomena, but when It;'
tries to explain the why and the how of
things it is often brought to a stand- '
still even in the natural truth. Were
the physical world reduced to what
we . can can completely understand
what an infinitesimal place it would
be! Who does -not see the philosophy
of Bacon's language "that the mind
so far as possible should be widened
to the boundlessness of God's mys
teries and not the mysteries narrowed
to the limits of human understanding;
and that the great minds of all the
ages unite in condemning a shallow
intellectuallsm which pretends to ex
plain catalogue, label and stow away,
in brain cells God's infinite works."
And in the little world called self can
we tell how spirit and matter act
upon each other? Can we analyze the
essence of matter? Can we solve the
SECRET OF LIFE . '■ -^:-:j
and death? If every' science has its
hidden truths: If. our own being is a

earth? Tell me if thou hast under

of heaven and canst thou set down the
reason thereof on the earth? Tall Me
if thou knowest these things." It is
unreasonable to deny what we cannot
see and understand. Belief on the

is to ask whether we should, believe
anything at all. Do we not give cre

of our senses? Do we not accept as
many more because those more learned

It is certainly reasonable to admit that

planet of ours moves around the sun,
although, in appearance, the sun is re

our senses in their proper sphere; if
we believe the verdict of the learned
against our senses, without detriment
to our intelligence, must it be a slight

pick and choose among the doctrines
of Christ— who cheerfully bend their
reason to the acceptance of one truth
because it suits them, and who stoutly
refuse to believe another, which is not
after their fancy. The motive for at
taching faith to one is the motive for
all. As soon as they perfect one re
vealed doctrine, because it does not
harmonize with their views, logically
they must renounce all revelation. The
question is not whether a doctrine
seems clear or obscure; whether it ac
cords with our notions or pleases our
friends, but whether it is revealed;
whether it is God's.

Julia Marlowe Taber and Robert Ta
ber in their Shakespearian repertoire
will be seen at the Metropolitan opera
house the week of Sept, 16.
An old Shakespearian success and
favorite forms a new feature In their
Hat of plays this season. It is "Henry
IV." In providing the variety of scenic
dressing and costumes for the ade
quate presentation. of this drama, his
torical correctness has been the chief
-object in view, and in carrying out
this purpose careful and studious at
tention to details and a heavy expen
diture were demanded. "As You_Like
It." "Romeo and Juliet" and "Twelfth
Night," in which these eminent stars
have won so much renown, are also in
their repertoire. The supporting com
pany, a large and complete organiza
tion, includes W. F. Owen, Henry
Doughty and Mrs. Sol Smith.
• Gus Heege and, his new Swedish dia
lect comedy, "A Yenuine Yentleman,"
will open the season at the Grand
opera house, Chicago, Aug. 25. Mr.
Heege will be supported by a strong
company, including Merri Osborne,
Sadie Connolly, Charles C. Maubury,
Harry Smith and others. Like Mr.
Heege's former dramatic efforts, "A
Yenuine Yentleman" deals in a humor
ous way with - the adventures of " a
young Swede in America One scene
of the play is laid on board an ocean
liner, and The others are laid in the
Coeur d'Alene country, Idaho.
The most unique and striking char
acter in Edwin Milton Royle's new
play of "Mexico" is said to be an old
negro body servant, who accompanies
his master to the war. The stage has
been deluged with the impossible darky
of minstrelsy and farce, but In the
character of "Jim" Mr. Royle, it is
said, has completed a most careful and
accurate sketch of the real high-class
slave of ante-bellum days, and has
pictured the warm and affectionate
devotion existing between master and
servant. Mr. Royle's grandfather was
a Kentucky slave-owner, and many of
the slaves insisted on clinging to the
family, even after the war had set
them free, so the author has had un
usual opportunities for becoming fa
miliar with the type of which he treats.
"Down on the Swanee River," pro
duced In Detroit, Aug. 11, is something
quite novel and pleasing. Fifty clever
darkeys appear in it among them being
William McCain, Charles A. Walker,
Cordelia McCain, Harry Singleton and
other comedians and singers. The
songs, dances, musical and acrobatic
performances are connected by a very
funny three-act story, the first act
being a caricature of savage life in
Africa, the second dealing with slave
life in the sunny South, the third show
ing the up-to-date New York darky
at a cake-walk. The play Is by R. N.
Stephens, and the scenery, which is
handsome and artistic, is the work of
John H. Young. The adventures of a
"fake" missionary and a real mission
ary with a gorilla, an African king and
a lot of savages, make up most of the
first act The second act deals with
the attempted elopement of a free -ne
gro with a slave girl. The third shows
seme very amusing Incidents growing
out of a poker game. The show is
crowded with specialties, which are of
the most entertaining kind.
Gus Heege's farce, "Rush City," will
be seen at the Grand soon, with Mat
thews and Bulger as the particular
stars. These gentlemen were the prin
cipal comedians of the New York
Casino production, "The Merry World,"
recently given in Chicago.
The management of the Grand an
nounces an important scheme, to take
effect with the commencement of its
next season. The innovation -will be"
the establishing of two bicycle "sta
bles," one in each court connected with
the theater. Owners of "bikes" will
therefore have an opportunityof check
ing their machines in these stables
free of charge. In the large Eastern
cities all first-class theaters have been
compelled to make some sort of pro
vision for wheels, on account of the
tremendous popularity "biking" has
now attained. ; A more convenient op
portunity than that - afforded by the
courts of the Grand could not be im
agined. Attendants will be placed in
charge of the "stables"- and every care
will be taken of wheels while checked.
"On the Bowery." with Steve Brodie
in the most prominent role, will' be
seen during the month of September

Vividly Recalled in a Strong Ser
mon Preached by Rev.
St. James' Episcopal church was
well filled yesterday, and those pres
ent heard a very interesting histori
cal and doctrinal sermon upon * St.
Bartholomew's day by Rev. Ham
mond Cotton. The text was from
John xviii., 36. The Globe gives
an extended synopsis of the dis
"Jesus answered, My kingdom is
not of this world; if My kingdom
were of this world, then would My
servants fight," Such is the lesson
which is suggested by the holy day
of the church, which occurs next
Saturday, which, by the strange
overruling of divine providence has
proved to be in an evil sense one of
the red-letter days of ecclesiastical
history. It was in the still early
dawn of Aug. 24, 1572, in the reign
of Charles IX. of France that the
great bell of St. Germain de 1'
Auxerrois rang out the signal which
the queen's mother, Catharine de
Medicis, had „ prearranged for the
whosesale massacre of the Hugue
nots, the first of whom to fall was the
brave Admiral Coliquy; and when
the ringing of that fatal bell had
been answered by the bells of all
the churches of the city of Paris
and of the Louvre, the slaughter was
begun in every part of the city.
What an awful time that was. Mu
tilated bodies were falling from the
windows, and the dead and dying
lay together in undistinguishable
heaps, or were drawn over the pave
ments to the river, which was liter
ally dyed with blood! As to the
massacres which followed in the
provinces it is impossible to say how
many thousands lost their lives for
conscience's sake. The Roman
archbishop of Paris, Perefixe, states
the number to have been nearly 100,
--000. How many Christians amongst
us must feel humiliated when we re
member that on receiving the news
that "the Seine flowed on more
majestically after receiving the
bodies of heretics," the bishop of
Rome and representative of St Pet
er went in grand procession to cele
brate high mass; that a te deum
was sung in commemoration of the
event, and the firing of cannon an
nounced it to the neighboring vil
lages; that a medal was struck bear
ing on one side the head of Gregory
XIII., and on the other a destroying
angel exterminating the Protestants,
with the inscription "Massacre of the
Huguenots, 1572." O Christ, what
crimes have been eommitteed in Thy
name! It 'was on Aug. 24, 1662, in the
reign of Charles 11. of England that
2,000 clergy were compelled to leave
house and home with their families
because they could not comply with
the condition imposed by the act
of uniformity. The corporation act
had been passed on the 20th of De
cember, 1661, seeking to deprive Pres
byterianism of its ioflutyice in the
large towns, and the act of uniformity
on the 19th of May compelling "as
sent and consent" to everything in
the Book of Common Prayer as it
then was; and now under circum
stances of open deceit and flippant
cruelty 2,000 ministers were, on St.
Bartholomew's day, deprived of their
offices. "This," says the historian,
"was an action without a precedent.
The like of this the reformed church,
nay, the Christian world, never saw
before. Historians relate with
tragical exclamations, that between
three and four score bishops were
driven at once into the island of
Sardinia by the African vandals;
that 200 ministers were banished by
Ferdinand, King of Bohemia, and
that great havoc was a few years
after made among the ministers of
Germany by the imperial interim.
But these altogether fall short of the
number ejected by the act of uni
formity, which was not less than
2,000. The succeeding hardships of
the latter were also by far the great
est. Not so much as a poor vicarage,
not an obscure chapel, not a school
was left them. Nay, though they of
fered, as some of them did, to preach
gratis, it must not be allowed them."
Can we wonder' that men like John
Cotton, John Eliot, Winthrop, Rich
ard Mather, and his distinguished
grandson. Cotton Mather, with the
host of others, had sought before
this on these American shores to
find a more excellent way and ; sys
tem — "the New England . way," as
it was then called? Our own doctrin
al sympathies are of course with
Winthrop and his comrades, who
"esteemed it an honor to call the
Church of England, from whence we
rise, our dear mother," and emigrat
ed (to use their own words) "that
they might be divided from her cor
ruptions, not from herself." With
the separation of church. and state,
which , was adopted as one of the
fundamental principles of the Amer
ican constitution by those members
of our own church which established
it every patriotic American church
man must entirely concur.
First and foremost, beloved, and as
a general principle, remember . that
physical force has no place in the
propagation of the faith.. "The weap
ons of our warfare are not carnal."
"My kingdom," says Christ, "is not of
this world; if My kingdom were of
this world, then would. My . servants
fight; but now is My kingdom not
from hence." The Huguenots, who
were massacred, and the ejected cler
gy who resisted passively, chose the
proper weapons, whether they were
doctrinally right or doctrlnally wrong.
Those who persecuted them, even
though Catholic and orthodox in their
belief, were fighting .with the devil's
weapons. Better the triumph of pa
ganism—dreadful though it may be to
com template— the triumph of
Christ and His church won by the
blood of persecution, and the brute
force of police persuasion!
Secondly,' here in the United '_ States
there may seem to be but little dan
ger in this regard; but beware the in
sidious approaches of a . disposition to
fight - the good fight with the wrong
weapons. '" There is a sense, of course,
in which the double maxim, "Keep re
l.'gion-mit of politics" and "Keep poli
tics out of religion" is false; but there
is j another | sense . in which it is true.
I have little sympathy with the meth
ods of the A. P. A. (In fact, I dislike
them very much), ' but •I' do not feel
quite sure that' the evil against which
such societies are aimed is non-exist
ent. God save us from the danger! In
any case, let the principle of unsec
tarian, secular, state education, as it
has hitherto existed in these states, be
loyally kept to. Let no man, woman
or child in this free country be ever
placed at a disadvantage on account
of religious opinion.- God bless the lit
tle, red _ school .house. It is the glory
of the country, and the ark of your
nation's safety. In a small district
high school in a country part of the
state cf New York, last fall, I found
that the day scholars were singing
"gospel hymns" as part of their
school exercises. The protest which
I made that it was a sectarian
book, was on the part of some so-called
"evangelical" Christian people rather
bitterly resented. But in doing bo
they were committing the same of
fense that our Roman brethren were
charged with last year in the attempt
to work out the so-called "Faribault
plan." To use our public schools as a
means of propagating the emotional
religion of the sectarian churches is
just a3 great an offense to a true
Catholic as the sisters' dress and the
devotional picture in the day school
would be to a true Protestant. Never
Beloved, "the weapons of our war
fare are not carnal." Let us use the
right ones. Let our loins, as individ
uals, and as the church militant, be
"girt about with truth." Let us slave
on "the breastplate of righteousness;
and our feet shod with tlie prepara
tion of the gospel of peace; above all,
taking the shield of faith, and the
helmet of salvation, which is the word
of God; praying always with all-prayer
and supplication for all saints." This
last weapon— that of faithful prayer
is especially emphasized in the lesson
of St. Bartholomew— Nathanael of
the gospel according to St. John. To
the "Israelite, indeed, in whom is no
guile"— the victory is given. He see 3
the Son of God. He sees the King of
Israel. Yea and greater things than
these hereafter does He see — "heaven
open, and the angels of God ascending
and descending upon the Son of Man."
The way of Christ— the truth of the
everlasting gospel— true Christian
life, the life everlasting these only
are the means to be used; these alone
are the arms to be wielded; these sim
ply and unassisted are amply suffi
cient to lay at the feet of "our fail-
Master, Christ," the opposition of an
unbelieving, rebellious and otherwise
THE BASS DRUMMER,
And "Why He Was Compelled to
Leave the Band.
Everybody on the West side who
ever listened to Schmiedler's little
German band misses Strauss, says
the Chicago Record. Strauss was
the bass drummer.
Strauss' peculiar charm was diffi
cult to describe. It didn't lie in his
stature, for he didn't have much, al
though this deficiency was to a large
extent made up by a vast and cush
iony breadth and thickness.
Indeed, he had grown to look, from
long association, perhaps, a good
deal like his bass drum; but Strauss
had bow legs and the drum hadn't.
Winter and summer Schmiedler's
little German band marched up and
down the streets, with Strauss al
ways behind, until every one on the
West side had learned to laugh and
cheer when they saw him.
But one day Strauss' place was
filled by an awkward little man with
a drum all out of proportion to his
The very idea that Schmiedler's
band could get along without Strauss
was astounding, and for a day or two
the crowds that flocked to hear the
music were composed largely of peo
ple who couldn't believe that Strauss
had really gone, and who had come
to see for themselves.
Schmiedler, who never said much at
a time, explained . that Strauss was
getting too old to play well, and that
he had resigned.
But nobody believed it.
A few days later Strauss himself ap
peared, his finery all laid aside and
his jolly, red face drawn long with
woe. His once martial swing had be
come a slippered shamble, and the
public beheld for the first time the
bread bald spot which the drum had
worn where Strauss' circumference
was greatest it was a long way from
For a time the bass drummer would
not explain his sorrow, but Anally
confided the secret to Diedrich, his
most intimate friend. Diedrich told
his wife, and what Frau Diedrich
knew all the world knew.
And this is the melancholy truth,
as Frau Diedrich is willing to bear
Strauss was dismissed— the shame
of because he could no longer get
his drum near enough to him to strike
it in the middle. That is why

reported to be in the grain fields,
orchards and vegetable patches all

last week he saw four fine deer in his

HELD AT CLINTON AVENUE
CHURCH IX WEST ST.
AN APPROPRIATE SERMON
ON "THE FRUITFUL AND BOUN
TIFUL YEAR,"'-' DELIVERED
BY REV. J. C. HULL.
GRAIN FROM WRIGHT COUNTY
Used to Decorate nnd Celebrate »
Service of Thankfulness to
the Giver of All.
Yesterday morning the beautiful
audience room of Clinton Avenue
church was tastefully decorated
with grain, fruits, house plants and
wild flowers, the occasion being a
harvest thanksgiving service. Con
spicuous among the decorations were
an immense bundle of wheat and
oats shipped from the farm of John
Ferrell, in Wright county, espe
cially, for the occasion. In front of
the altar railing on the handsome
oak table were a number of fruit
dishes laden with fine peaches, pears,
grapes and a bunch of white cauli
flower, measuring thirty-three inches
in circumference, while from the
choir loft hung splendid clusters of
wild flowers, made up chiefly of gold
«en rod and yellow daisies.
The pastor, Rev. J. C. Hull,
preached from Psalm ixv.,2, a sermon
very appropriate to the occasion. It
was full of rejoicing and thank
fulness for the bounteous blessings
bestowed upon us. The following is
a short synopsis of the excellent dis
Agriculture was among the first
of industries, and today holds a first
place among those which make up
the happiness and prosperity of a
people. Statistics have been gath
ered from 334 great -'amines in the
world's history, and from them we
see how much of suffering and dis
tress and how great the loss of life
when the "fields and country have
failed to yield their supplies. While
it may be that in our time and
country a famine is impossible, still
there are depressions and discour
agements from the shortening of
crops so that a very fruitful year
like the present is an occasion of re
Lant year the "ra^i-makers" op
erated, and we know the result They
operated in Texas, in Kansas, in Ne
braska, in the Dakotas, in Minne
sota in Illinois. They operated till
the country dried up. And now the
"rain-makers" themselves ,seem to
have dried up! At the opening of this
season there was general anxiety.
Even a St. Paul daily paper sug
gested early last spring that every
body should pray for rain. In South
Dakota a Sunday was set apart for
prayer for rain. Down in Texas Mr.
Moody at a great tabernacle meeting
prayed for rain. I "co not mean to
argue that rain may be had at any
time In response to prayer. That
would make prayer a commercial com
modity ; and it was never intended
for that But I mean to say that
the proper attitude for us at the
opening of any season is .hat of de
vout looking toward the Creator and
governor of all things, :-nd at the
closing of such' an abundant harvest
as the present, is that of thanks
giving for the blessings received.
This year, to use the vague and
meaningless form of common English,
it has raired; it has been a good year.
But to use the more intelligent and
beautiful language which expresses
the fact, the Lord has thundered in
the heavens; and the Most High has
sent showers to water the earth.
Could we have risen with the twi
light this morning «5d with the flash
ing rays of light sped across our
country, what a scene would have
been unveiled before us. Skirting the
Atlantic from Maine southward to the
gulf, and westward up the Pacific, or
chards bending with ripened fruit. In
the Northwest, wheat fields glistening
like the gold they represent; while in
the center of the United States might
be seen what is practically a continu
ous corn field 1,000 miles in length, and
from 300 to 800 miles In nreadth. From
Ohio, where it has been shortened a
little by drouth, westward to Kansas,
where it 3 splendor culminates with the
assured yield of 400,000,000 bush
els for that state alone, this
mighty sea of silk and bloom but em
phasizes the occasion of today's
We should render thanksgiving foi
the fact that we have reached a
time when no able-bodied man needs
to go without employment. Our streets
have been torn up and obstructed all
summer from paving, building and
other improvements; but I have
scarcely heard a word of complaint
about the inconvenience. We have
climbed over and gone around and pa
tiently gotten everybody glad
that there is something for the work
men to do.
Yet, after all the conditions of pros
perity, we must remember that we do
not live by bread alone. It is pleas
ant to rejoice in the midst of such
abundance as this year brings. The
Hebrews had three great festivals —
1 the Passover came at the beginning
of harvest Pentecost when it was
practically done; and the feast of tho
tabernacles at the close of the year
when all the products of the soil were
gathered. Our rejoicing today, corre
sponds to Pentecost." Later in the year
we shall have our greater displays
and more formal thanksgivings; but
today as wo observe the time of Pen
tecost, let us seek something of the
power of that great historic Pentecost
which gave the church its birth. "■ 777'
