conservative in the matter of carriage

her, but these turnouts are rare. Per

A. GUTHRIE'S TOP SURREY.
TAKE A RAP AT DR. MINOJ J. SAVAGE
"Vacation Religion" is the title of a
sermon preached in New York by the
Rev. Dr. Minot J. Savage, the famous
Unitarian preacher and writer. This
discourse has caused considerable
comment owing to the position taken
by the speaker upon the subject of
Sunday amusements. The following
synopsis of the report gives an idea
of Dr. Savage's views on this interest
ing, point. He says that he has not
a word to say against Sunday amuse
ments. There is no reason whatever
in the Bible or in ecclesiastical history
for the. existence of the Puritanical
or ordinary American Sunday. Nor is
there anybody in heaven who is going
to be angry with us for doing anything
on Sunday that it Is right to do on
any other day of the week. He adds
that Sunday morning should be set
aside for communion with God, but the
rest of the day may be spent in walk
ing, driving, sailing, playing golf, or
any other healthy physical exercise.
He also says, "Do not dissipate, as that
is not recreation."
Desiring to find what other religious
teachers think on this matter The
Globe has interviewed a number of
the prominent clergy in St. Paul with
the following results:
Rev. J. J. Lawler.
Rev. J. J. Lawler, Rector of the Cathe
dral of St. Paul—Sunda*- is the Lord's day
—sacred to His service. For the sanctifl
cation of Sunday the church commands
her children to worship God by hearing
mass, by prayer and by other good works,
and forbids all unnecessary servile works
and whatever else may hinder its proper
observance. All our days are God's; yet
He has reserved but one in seven espe
cially for His service. On Sunday peo
ple, should give God a fair day's spiritual
work. It is a time set apart for replen
ishing their stock of piety and religious
instruction. The Sundays of the year are
so many heaven-sent invitations to prayer
and praise ringing above the din and
traffic of earth.
And Sunday is humanity's day—sacred
to rest. It was instituted for the welfare
of the whole man, for the refreshment of
soul and body. As the night's rest fol
lows the fatigues of the day, Sunday's
respite from toil restores the strength
consumed by the labors of the week. In
the observance of Sunday the extremes
of overrigidity and overlaxity must be
avoided, what do I think of the Puritan
ical way of spending Sunday? Well, how
ever,sincere the Puritans may have been,
they todk a step too far In strictness.
They forgot that the Sabbath was made
for man, and not man for the Sabbath.
Their rigorism had a tendency to drive
people to the -other extreme —to a loose
Interpretation of the commandment. There
is no sanction for Christ's religion for their
exaggerated notion of Sunday. There is
little danger that the Puritanical Sabbath
will ever be generally kept, but there is
great danger in devoting the Lord's day
to work at the bidding of greed or to
In all the ages the church has stood
between these extremes. It has conse
crated Sunday to religious worship and
to lawful recreation.
. It has declared Sunday not a time of
gloom, but a time of joy. Am among the

this rule Is safe: 'Put everything on
for a lady's use—take everything off

wasted on the men <6f St. Paul, for the
majority of them #rive very little.
Even the city's millionaires patronize
the street car^'to a^kreater extent than
do the rich m£n of any other city. Per
haps they look updh carriages as dis-
tinctly feminine belongings. Perhaps
they have not yet reached that period
of leisure when they can pursue seri
ously the luxuries of life. The matter
of the selection of the carriages, at
least, is left to the mistress of the
house. In many instances the master
of the house often defers to her judg
ment in the purchase of the horses. To
her more than to her husband the
credit belongs for some of St. Paul's
While many St»! Paul women have
taken up auto'moblling as a fad this
summer, there ars: many others who

niable fact that a woman looks better
on horseback*, cantering along easily
than she doesjiij wi automobile, espe
cially when the machine is going, as
it generally \m, «,t break-neck speed.
No costume hps yet been devised that
will successfully prdtect the wearer
from the dust of the road. Perhaps
that is one reason—indeed, the most
important —why the horse has
not gone out of fashion.

early Christians, joy was an element in
Sunday observance. So the Lord's day
should always be a holy day and a holi
day. Religion and rest are its ingredients.
Rest is not synqnymoug with sitting still
at home; not with lugnbriousness. Rea
sonable recreation, which does not inter
fere with one's' duties to God and which
is taken with moderation, is not a dese
cration of Sunday.
Rev. C. Herbert Shutt. , .
Rev. C. " Herßert Shutt, Rector of St.
Peter's Episconal. Qhurch—After reading
the sermon of the Rev. Minot Savage, as
reported in the newspaners, concerning
dealing with what he calls "vacation re
ligion," before expressing any opinion
upon the substance of his remarks, I
would like to say in the beginning. that
the statements are so loosely put togeth
er as to be illogical. ■
- In the first place, the Puritanical and
the ordinary American Sunday bear not
the 1 slightest resemblance to each other.
They are as far apart as the poles. I
am not an advocate for what is usually
understood by the former. .
" As for Dr. Savage's advice, to devote
the morning hours to worship, it seems to
me he has fallen, into the error of regard
ing the hours from 11 to 12:30 as the
sacred portion of the Lord's day. The
Jew went up for . his, morning and even
ing sacrifice, but too often the Christian
does not think agparently that the even
ing sacrifice is necessary. ...,> -
2 As for doing anything on Sunday, that
is right on any. other day of the week,
and setting apart only the morning hours,
I fail to see where Dr. Savage finds any
revelation or authority i for devoting to
God only some portion of Sunday. If
he bases the Sunday morning observance
of which he speaks,on the moral law, by
what authority does he exempt just those
particular hours, or modify the law so
as<: to apply alone to the morning, and
not the whole day? Are we -to under
stand that it is God or Dr. Savage who
selects only a part of the day for devo
tion? First .he seemingly condemns en
tirely the Puritanical Sabbath; then turns
back on his statement and makes a cu
rious reservation by saying, set apart or
keep a portiori of it.in the Puritanical
way. This is scarcely logical.
If he bases his admonition to set apart
the morning f§r worship on Scripture,
Scripture .demands, *tn conformity with
the spirit- of the law, a greater observ
ance of the Lord's djay than, an hour and
a half or two hours in the morning. I
think it would ljne difficult for Dr. Savage
to find any autnority for regarding these
hours as more sacred than any other on
Sunday r-,f,- .,>•*:■„-.. ■■■•■ T,- ■■>. j-r ■■ :, ■.•■ ;

essary, jI . may - say that . while" I do ' not
believe in the JewJslLror Puritanical Sab

the Sabbath is made for man, and not
man for the Sabbath, yet the law of keep
ing or observing of the Sabbath . rests
upon two great principles, namely, ; man's

but of j principle, and | leaves : the due pro

living being to act without hindrance, ac

erty, undue freedom, freedom abused, a
contempt of and deviation from a stand-
The austere Puritanism of fifty yeara
ago and its consequent reaction, the
American Sabbath, are the extremes. And
tnere is a tendency among some today
who wish to pose as popular and broad
mlnaed, and as being gifted with a clear
er vision and greater insight than their
more orthodox brethren, to exaggerate
the popular side of the observance of Sun
day. While many are quite willing to ad
mit the principle of man's requirement
of rest, they are frequently not so ready
to grow enthusiastic over the more im
portant principle of God'B requirement of
As to Dr. Savage's assertion that there

Rev. H. F. Stilwell.
Rev. H. F. Stilwell, Pastor of the First
Baptist Church—l think the use of the
word "amusement" in the sermon by Dr.
Savage, to which you have called my at
tention, is unfortunate. I think we, as
human beings, should be above being
The Puritanical and the ordinary Amer
ican Sunday bear no resemblance to each
other. The ordinary American Sabbath
Is a free liberty-loving day, inclined too
often to license.
In regard to the statement that no one
in heaven is going to be "angry with
you for doing on Sunday anything that it
Is right to do on any other day in the
week," there is a failure to distinguish
between Sunday and any other day of
the week, and while the Bible does not
lay down any specific prohibitory laws
there is a general principle throughout
the Bible differentiating the Sabbath from
all other days.
Dr. Savage does attempt To do what
the Bible does not when he says: "Set
apart Sunday morning for communion
with God. Then use the rest of the day
for recreation, walking, sailing, driving,
playing golf or anything that will make
you better physically. Do not dissipate,
however, for that is not recreation."
Dr. Savage seems to indicate that the
Sabbath day is pre-eminently fitted for
physical rcreation. In this he is not whol
ly incorrect. Conditions are favorable for
physical recreation if this were the ul
terior object of the day. But it is not;
man's nature has not simply a physical
and social side, but it has also a spiritual
or Godward side.
The Sabbath day, or Sunday, through
out the teachings of the Bible, is a day
separate, set apart, and especially devoted
to the cultivation of man's religious or
spiritual nature. While no laws can be
made that shall apply to every man, it
should be a law that nothing done upon
that day should hinder the cultivation of
the spiritual life. Six days in the ordinary
pursuits of life deprive him of vigorous
religious meditation necessary to soul life.
Herein . thfngs that are right in the
pursuance of a man's vocation for six
days may not be right on the Sabbath '
One great need for every man is a bet- •
ter acquaintance with his Maker and
the enjoyment of communion with Him. (
For this the Sabbath day was instituted
as necessary to man's happiness.
Conditions of obtaining this are .is ::ec
essary to be observed as t hoses undertyr
ing the highest physical conditions. Jesus
said the Sabbath was made for man,
Whatever conduces to the rounding out
of full man—his social, moral and spir
itual being is a legitimate pursuit for his
Sabbath day. For this, however, he
needs a break rather than a continuity
of those exercises, mental or physical or
social to which he is most accustomed.
Activity is not always recreative, man
needs a silent hour and meditation, and
for these the Sabbath is beneficently de
signed. Worship is a normal condition
of soul life, and the Sabbath day is es
pecially ordained for this.
The tendency unfortunately of the
American Sabbath is toward those forma
of recreation that distract from fruitful
cultivation of worship, meditation and
communion with God.
Rev. Richard W. Boynton.
Richard W. Boy ton, Pastor of Unity
Unitarian Church—l am in general sym
pathy with what Dr. Savage is quo ted as
saying on the subject of Sunday amuse
ments, though his view is one that needs
to be stated with careful qualification,
and with reference to the general pjirid
ple involved. The question is not wheth
er the Jewish or Puritan Sabbath will
continue in force, for that has practically
disappeared from our city life, if not fiom
most of the country districts. We have,
however, as a part of our heritage :'iom
the past, this tradition of a seventh day
of rest. It has behind it the sanction
through many centuries of a considera
ble part of tha. human race. ihe prin
ciple that is to determine our vie of it is
in my belief, that of ministering to the
fullest and highest human life. Jesus
stated this principle when he said: "The.
Sabbath was made for man, ami njt man
for the Sabbath."
From long custom, Sunday has b^en
given to the cultivation of m,e of the i««r
l. anent ana prof ml interest 3 of man—
his interest in religion. It has been ded
icated to the worship of God and the
service of humanity. It has lifted men
and women out of their sordid and di
vided interests and united them in as
piration toward the divine and eternal.
Now this is an element which cannot be
spared from human life without working
great injury. Those who never step
aside from their daily tasks to join their
fellows in worship may not be punished
for neglect in a world to come. But
they bear the punishment now, in the
slow withering of that better and deeper
nature in which we find life becoming rich
and satisfying or else empty and mean
Any use of Sunday that involves the ne
glect of the opportunity to worship is a
mistaken use of it, and the real issue is
not often whether one shall participate
in Sunday amusements after he has been
to church, but whether he shall choose
the sport or the worship. Sport is es
sentially self-regarding. Is it, then, for
the highest good of the man himself and
of the community that, after he has been
looking out for himself all the week, and
for his lower self at that, he shall con
tinue to care only for himself on Sun
day? Or are there other possible inter
ests that claim him, for his own and all
men's highest good?
Rev. H. B. Steelman.
Rev. H. B. Steelman, pastor of
Woodland Park Baptist Church-
Rev. Mr. Savage's Sunday programme
proceeds on the supposition that our hour
of communion with God on this day of
rest, from secular business, is quite suf
ficient spiritual exercise for the soul's
health, and that the rest of the day there
fore may be profitably given over to any
prop_er holiday recreation. But Mr. Sav
age loses sight of the fact that the peo
ple who seriously care for communion with
God desire more time than the ordinary
day affords for devoting themselves to
religious exercises, to personal deeds of
brotherly love and to planning the world
wide extension of Christ's kingdom. It is
a simple matter of experience with spir
itually minded people who have their
loins girded for the doing of these Christ
like deeds that it is altogether important
to hedge about the whole of Sunday.
It is not fear of God's anger that leads
them to refrain from making Sunday a
simple holiday; it is because they have
learned that "they that wait upon the
Lord shall renew their strength," and
they are eager to be of the highest serv
ice. On the other hand, it is true that
for them to devote a part of Sunday to
a mere round of what is called pleasure
would be essentially selfish and unchris
tian. fvnd_ to the neglect of urgent duties
and nign privileges, and so would needs be
displeasing to the God in heaven.
When Christians think of others, they
may very properly look with solicitude
upon every secularization of Sunday, for
this reason, among others, that it tends
to break down one of the great public re
minders that man is a befng with a des
tiny different from that of the beasts that
perish. The general practice of Mr. Sav
age's programme would destroy entirely
the distinctive ministry of Sunday. From
any point of view it is out of character
for a Christian to make Sunday a hol
iday; by preserving the American Sunday
the truest human interests are to be con

Savage's opinion concerning the Sabbath.
He only says what Jewish religion and
Jewish philosophy has said for centuries.
In Jewish thought the Sabbath was never
a day of gloom, but a day of wholesome
gladness and rejoicing. The idea of
prayer and divine worship is of later orig
in in the history of Jewish thought than
the idea of Sabbath rest.
But both rest and worship never meant
to the Jewish mind sadness and gloom.
Indeed, one of the principal thanksgiving
prayers of the Jewish Sabbath service is
that for the "Sabbath gladness," and the
The prevalent notion of Sabbath rest
is Puritanical. The Puritan in his at
tempt to get back to the literacy of the
Mosaic legislature Invented his peculiar
Idea of Sabbath rest and Sabbath gloom.
But with the Jew who brought the Sab
bath to the modern world, even as he has
given the world the God Idea, the Sabbath
is a day of gladness and rejoicing.

Hope—lt is difficult for any man to tell
how other men ought to sj>end Sunday.
It is a matter that must be left largely to
private judgment. In general, however,
it may be said that Sunday should be
made different from other days, and that
the pursuits and pleasures natural to
working days should be suspended on the
In addition, there is no doubt, that Sun
day should be a, time for the freshening
and developing of man's soul-nature.
Hence the necessity for church and for
the possibility of quiet reflection. In my
opinion, those who have opportunity for
recreation upon other days should devote
the Sabbath to other purposes. But I
frankly confess that there are excep
tional cases which I do not feel free to
judge. Theso cases under the push and
stress of modern times are, alas-, only too

The wire and flat sheets constitute about

The first questionasked by.a civilian on
havinghis attention called to a newgun is,
how far will it throw a shot? Ho naturally
knows that the greater the range the great
er the penetration at a given distance. 4
The artillerist inquires, what is the pene
tration or energy of the piece, and from
that, computes the range.
To answer the question in the minds of
the people, our ballistic engineer, CoL
James M. Ingalls, of the U.S. Army.retlred,
has kindly computed for us the range of
the teninch gun, 1902 model, as follows :-»
" The range at 45 degrees elevation, COO
pound shot, 8,500 feet per second muzzle
velocity, will be 40.865 miles." j
The nearest approach to this range and'
efficiency is an American 12-inch gun, com
puted by the same authority to have lest
than 24 miles range and corresponding
About $80,000,000 is now the average
yearly purchase of guns by all nations
combined, and the expenditure in this line
Is steadily increasing. Probably from IS
to 20 guns are purchased for use abroad to .
one for America. j
The patents, both American and Foreign
are absolutely fundamental.
Leadership in gun construction has al

This system has now passed the expert,

which they will inaugurate.
The Trustees for the foreign rights ara
extremely desirous to enter the foreign
market at the earliest possible moment
and hence offer for investment a sufficient
number of shares of a foreign company
to be incorporated in Europe, to pay for
building one 6-inch type rapid fire breech

for immediate use in founding a company
to manufacture these guns in Europe for
all foreign countries.
The Trustees believe that the shares will
be equal in earning power to the shares
of any heavy ordnance company that has
been or will be organized.
Therefore, to stimulate quick decision
and prompt action in forming the ground
floor of this foreign company.these shares
are now offered for investment at twenty
per cent, of their par value—slo shares at

Sunday amusements. The Sabbath means
rest, and is given us for rest from ordi
nary work, toil and latior, and ulso for
spiritual uses. The commandment says:
''Remember the Sabbath day to keep it
holy." I do not mean by this that the
whole Sabbath should be devoted exclu
sively to religious employments, but it
should be used in such a way as to de
velop man's higher nature.
