Not one man in ten thousand, outside of tho ministry itself, probably ever stops to consider the causes of success or its reverse in the pulpit. Yet nil of us see daily ministers who have d oneniuch to bring to them what is termed success not material ad vancement, but success in the actual spiritual upbuilding of their fellow men. We see others who apparently fail to accomplish such results. Yet tho average man does not give time to delve into the problems of the ministry and find out the causes. The Chicago Intcr-Oecan in yesterday's is sue goes into this theme quite volum inously and in part says: In the current Homiletic Review tho Rev. Smith Raker of Portland, Me., gives "Ten Reasons Why Some Ministers Fail." Here they are: 1 Lack of natural ability. 2 Lazi ness, u Lack of overseeing power. 4 Grumbling, faultfinding, dictator ship. T Lack of Manliness, t! Fi nancial carelessness. 7 Financial sharpness. S Carelessness of habits; doing things which, though not wrong in themselves, ought not to be done, 9 Lack of common sense. 10 Lack of energy. The first thing that strikes an ob serving layman about this list is that It contains nothing in the way of a special or peculiar cause for the fail ure of ministers of the gospel. Of course ministers fail for some or all of these reasons, but so do bankers or barbers, lawyers ami longshoremen, sheriffs and saloonkeepers. They are universal causes of human failure. There is nothing in them which ap plies to a niiuiMer a whit more than to any other man. In the same inacazinet he Rev. Wil- lard Hroxvn Thorp of Chicago tolls of j a plan by which he thinks four mln-i lsters succeeded. He, ;1 Congtegatton alist; the Utv. K. V Taller, a Baptist; the Rev. J. H. McDonald, a Methodist ; and tho Row Jenkin Lloyd Jones, a Jenkin Lloyd Jouesist, their churches happening to be in the same neigh borhood, agreed to study together and 'preach" together 'preach' at the rani? time on the j same themes, which were "The Be trr.yal cf Citizenship," "The Curse of Intoxicants." "Tho Gambling Spirit," and "Chlcnn.Vs Sunday." The curiou-; point about Dr. Thorp's story of this experiment Is that he thinks it was really successful. It excited popular interest,, and atten- dance increased. The newspapers gave "excellent reports," and one of them made it the theme of an "exceed ingly strong editorial," in which it characterized "the quadruple combin ation" as "not unlike the flying wedge .formation in football," and expressed that "the grafters, the thieves, the hoodie politicians, the gamblers, and all the violators of law will watch its development with lively apprehension of coming retribution." Yet it is perefctly apparent to every man who sees things as they are, in stead of as he would like to have them that the guilty who were supposed to be alarmed by this ministerial "flying wedge" were no more alarmed by it than they would have been by the same number of popular lectures from laymen. In other words whatever the four ministers may have done as citizens, they did nothing more thajx the same number of laymen might have done with the same facilities. They did nothing at all as ministers of the gos pel. Dr. Thorp seems vaugely conscious of this fact when he remarks that he does not sec why "the subjects need to be confined to civics and morals," as "religious themes, such as 'Prayer', 'Conversion,' 'The Future life,' would gain immensely in their appeal to a town by being thus simultaneously presented in all the churches." They would. Dr. Thorp, they would, for then the ministers who presented them would be speaking in their own peculiar character as ministers. They would be saying things which, to the public mind, Jio layman can be so well qualified to say. They would "be deliv ering the message which is the sole reason of their existence as ministers. And this brings us back, not to Mr. Pakeru ten reasons why men fail, but to the chief reason why ministers fail. To succeed a minister must have the message without which men cannot have assurance of salvation from their L,nw tn f,voH..stinir i,r(, i)o 1111ist ff,(.i earth like world. a Luther shaking the WESTERN PRODUCT GOOD Operators Holding Production at Mod erate Volume at Present and on the Whole a More Cheerful View is Taken of the Situation. Publishers' frsss Chicago, Aug., 11. The Black Dia mond says: Somewhat increased de mand for Western bituminous coal, which lirst made. itself felt about the first of the month, has continued dur ing the last week, although no addit ional strength has developed. Oper ators, however, have not permitted themselves to base exagerated expec tations upon this moderate increase in demand, but have held production at about the volume previously main tained. The result has been a grad ual cleaning up of the serious accu mulation of ear service coal in Chica go, so that at the present time the market has ceased to regard such coal as a serious menace. At the same time it is not to he understood that demurrage coal is not to be found, and that, too, in altogeth er too large a quantity. REBUILDING OLD ROAD There is More or Less Talk of Recon structing the Famous National Turnpike. There is more or less talk in the newspapers about the restoration of tho old National Road as a national highway, says the New Paris Mirror. Kvery little while a suggestion comes first from one place and then an other, that tills be done. The auto ists want it done and their influence will count for something and will gradually increase. The enthusiastic good roads advocate can see how such a highway, scientifically con structed and stretching across sev eral states, would be an object lesson that would go far toward the educa tion and development of public senti ment and thus exert a wonderful in fluence for the betterment of roads everywhere. It is rot likely, how ever, that any appropriation will be made by congress for such a purpose, 11 ,s "l jf'cat pity that tho money spent on battleships and naval man- cuvers could not be expended to build such a road. It wouldn't tnkp much of it. A. ac:ea uy Pirates. Hongkong, Aug. 11. A British launch, the Wingenat, was attacked by pirates close to Wu Chow. One of ner CIVW was killed and three were wounded.

Publishers' Press New York, Aug., 11.

When the Hryan crowds are added to these, said the hotel men, the hotels will have there hands full. George W.

Wants Dollar Subscriptions. Washington, Aug. 11. Chairman Origgs of the Democratic congression al committee sent out many thousand circulars calling for $1 subscriptions from Democrats throughout the coun try, the money to be used for the cam paign of 130S. In his letter Chairman Griggs says:' "If there ever was a time in the history of the Democratic party for a manifestation of loyalty and patriotism on the part of its mem bers, it is right now. If we are to win a victory and elect a president two years hence we must first elect a house of representatives this fall. A Democratic house can and will inves tigate every department of the govern ment. With all those honeycombed with graft, the edges of which only have been touched by recent expos ures and prosecutions, there will be a revelation of rottenness that will as tound the country and create a de mand for a Democratic administration to clean the government workshop."

Plans for Jamestown Exposition Novel Methods Proposer! for Getting to the Site and Viewing the Sights Around Hampton Roads at the Same Time TV.bMshers" Press Norfolk. Va., Aug. 11. Something new under the sun is the "Water Beit Line" that has just been projected as a means of transportation between ! the Jamestown Exposition grounds and the several cities and points of interest around Hampton Roads and Tidewater, Virginia. The " belt line' ; on land, by steam or trolley cars, is a familial- institution in many cities. ' but here for th lirst time has been organized a water belt line .boats in- i sioad of cars being used. Mi. 11. F. MctJarvie. now of New York, is at the , head of the company. Mr. McCarvie, well known as tornier expositions as j an originator of novel concession id-j eas, on a recent visit to the exposition i cities conceived the idea of establish- ' ina: the Water Belt Line. The pictur-j esque and historic interests of a water j trip to the Imposition grounds appeal-j ed to him, and alter a survey of thej territory lie perceived the possibilities: of such a belt line and acted promptly upon the suggestion. Splendid observation steamers will be run on this novel route. Each steamer will carry about l..".UO passen- j gers without crowding. A regular ' schedule of trips will be made, the j boats starting from Campbell's wharf j in Norfolk, touching at Portsmouth, j the Norfolk Navy Yards. Newport ; News. Old Point.
