Immense Sums Raised
By Church Members
Tiiose who believe, or affect to be
lieve, that religion Is declining
throughout the countries of Christen
dom, will find no support for their pes
simistic notions In the figures show
ing the amounts already collected for
the "20th century" funds started by
various denominations in this country
and Europe, says Leslie's Weekly.
These funds have already reached a
total of $40,000.000 and the promoters
of these enterprises are confident that
they will have the balance of $10,000,
000 more. Of the amount raised,
more than one-half Is credited to
American churches, the Methodists
being far In the lead In liberality.
The Canadian Methodists started In
to raise $1,000.000 and have already
secured that and $250,000 besides.
The Presbyterians of Canada set out
for the same million-dollar goal and
have already &one nearly a half mil
lion beyond It.
It Is especially gratifying to note
that all these enormous sums have
oeen collected at an expense of less
than one per cent of the total, and
also that In splto of this generous
giving H has In no way Interfered
with the regular contributions to mis
sionary societies and to the support of
churches. On the contrary, all rell
glous societies show an Increase In
receipts, and there Is hardly one that
is not out of debt, a condition that
has not obtained In years. The i.nds
collected are to be used first for the
payment of church ik'btti, and after
that for the endowment of colleges,
missionary societies and other reli
As giving and doing are always
closely related, It Is unbelievable that
this outpouring of millions for the ex
tension of religion at home and abroad
will not. bo speedily followed by a
corresponding development and In
crease In the spiritual life and activi
ties of the churches. The open hand
and the open heart generally go together.

Influences of Good

A Fascinating Tale.
Father rabio Martino, parish priest
of Yesca, Mexico, reports that a party
of Americans, headed by an archae
ologle expert, who gave the name of
Heverlck, went Into the mountains ac
companled by three Mexican guides
and, by means of a chart which he
claimed to have copied f-om an Aztec
stone tablet. In the national museum
In the City of Mexico, located a vast
cavern In a mountain near Yesca. Im
mense stone images stood about this
chamber. In one end was a handsome
altar, above which burned a bright
flame, supplied by natural gas from a
crevice In the wall. In a chamber ad
joining this main temple was found
a great store of ornaments and uten
bIIs belonging to tho Aztecs or some
other prehistoric race. Twelve burros
were required to transport the articles
from the cave to San Bias, where they
were chipped to San Francisco, accom
panied by the Americans.

A Flowery Brief.
A brief for the state In an early
Nebraska case Indulges In the fol
lowing prairie flowers of fancy:
"Plaintiffs In error are afraid that
the honor and dignity of the state
will suffer, and they Invoke for the
claimants broad principles of natural
equity, and the claim that neither the
laws governing courts nor the consti
tution apply to them. Tho logical so-
cuer.ee Is this that persons who hold
claims apainst the Btate are a favored
class, who can alone make wings of
'justice and right' to fly to that mys
tic region above and beyond the tram
mels of law, and where such unjust
things as contracts and written con
stitutions do not exist: but where for
them a straight and narrow pathway
!eads to the treasury, whose doors,
without stint or delay, turn softly on
golden hinges to admit them. Yet If
I do not very much mistake this
court, 'these wings' will unfeather in
their flight, and claimants against the
slate muBt fall to a common level with
all other litigants, and stand up to the
tack where is fed that, good old fod
der of 'justice and right" as admin
istered by our courts."

Russell Sage's Saving.
A solicitor for a Well street psper
had been trying for a long time to
secure the signature of Itiissell Sage
to an advertising contract at a cost of
$100 per year, but to no purpose. To
show how diligently he had been
working, hoping thereby to Induce Mr
fcíage to sign the contract, he said:
1 think, Mr. Sage, you ought to
favor mo with this order, for have
been after you for three years."
The old flt!r.(ier leaned back In his
chair, thought a moment, and then
asked: "How loig lave you been try
lng to get this mi. tract, did you say?'
"Thiee years," hopefully replied the
"Then, you see," continued Mr.
Cage, "I have saved Just $:Ji0,"
