Eeports of His Meetings in Foreign Newspaper. IS MADE MUCH OF. His Speeches Greatly Please the Britishers. Visit to Land cf Hall Caiue Especially Interesting. They have some queer ways of doing things ovei' in England. The published reports cf the meetings being held there in the interests of temperance by Charles M. Sheldon of this city show the customs which in this country would eeem decidedly odd. It seems from the reports that there is a regular routine for every temper ance meeting. There is no originality or variation in the programme. Here is the regular unalterable line of march: Dignitaries, with Dr. Sheldon in midst, assemble on platform. Resolution moved endorsing Temper ance Alliance. Resolution seconded. Speech by Dr. Sheldon endorsing the resolution. Resolution adopted. Resolution moved thanking Dr. Shel don for speech. Resolution seconded. Resolution adopted. After which the meeting adjourns. Of course the moving and seconding of these resolutions gives opportunity for other people to make speeches, but these speeches are always subordinate to that of Dr. Sheldon. In some places they have stereopticon pictures they call them "limelight pic tures." Among other things thrown on the screen is a series of views of Topeka, which is being used as an example of what a town ought to be. The Alliance News and Temperance Reformer, a 16 page weekly, printed as an organ of the temperance crusade, devotes much space to reports of Dr. Bheldon's meetings. The reports are written in the stiff, formal style of most current British literature, but are ev cently prepared by somebody who in tends that Dr. Sheldon shall get all that is coming to him. Here are some ex tracts from the reports in the Alliance News and Temperance Reformer: "Dr. Sheldon had another series of splendid meetings last week. On the Monday evening the scene of the dem onstration was the Public Hall, Lowes toft, when the audience was crowded and enthusiastic. Alderman A. Adams presided, and on the platform were the rector (Rev. A. D. Tupper-Carey), the Revs. T. G. Boyne, J. C. Mantrlpp. J. E. Ennals H. G. Attwater, E. H. Brine, and J. Sarvent. Alderman W. Mobbs, Councillor J. Jackman, Mr. W. Gwyn, and Mr. T. P. Starke, of the f. K. A. (Norwich). "An Alliance campaign resolution was moved by the chairman, and seconded by the Rev. T. G. Boyne. "Dr. Sheldon's speech was In support of the resolution, which was duly put and carried unanimously. "The rector moved a vote of thanks to Dr. Sheldon for his address. He said he had his own views on temperance reform, which, perhaps, would not be agreed with by everybody. But he was glad to be there to show his sympathy with temperance reform, and to stand shoulder to shoulder with his brethren of other denominations. (Applause.) "The Rev. J. E. Ennals seconded, and the vote was carried." At Darwen, on April 30, Dr. Shel don spoke in competition with Lord Salisbury, and seemed to get away with the goods. The report of the Darwen meeting says: "A splendid meeting was held in the Co-operativa hall, Darwen, on Tues day evening, April 30th, to welcome and hear Rev. O. M. Sheldon. D. D., and this notwithstanding the fact that at the same time a large party meet ing addressed by Lord Salisbury, for merly M. P. for the division, was being held in the theater close by. "Notwithstanding the long journey. Dr. Sheldon, was in splendid form, and his speech, bristling with humorous points and pathetic passages, with tell ing facts and circumstances related in his self-contained, unaffected manner from the standpoint of personal ex perience, was punctuated with ap plause, and made a deep impression upon all present." Tour of Isle of Man. The Isle of Man, the home of Hall Caine. and other historic characters and literary men, was visited by Mr. Sheldon next. It rained all the time, and the party waded through mud which must ha've been as bad as some of the Kansas gumbo beds. When the writer of the Alliance News report wanted to say that Mr. Sheldon was interviewed by a reporter, he said: "During this interval the represen tative of the Isle of Man 'Daily Times' interviewed Dr. Sheldon, and gained a few particulars which were embod ied in an appreciative paragraph in the next day's issue." The first meeting was at Ramsey, and there was a small sized tornado prevailing when that place was reach ed. Nevertheless. Mr. Sheldon had a good sized crowd. The usual resolu tions were made, and the report of the meeting says: "In support of that resolution Dr. Sheldon delivered a speech that kept the audience rapt for a considerable space of time. Dr. Sheldon does not possops eloouenee. as one usually un derstands the word, and has none of the stock-in-trade tricks of the profes sional orator, but he has a simple and rt'.rect manner, and an air of quiet sin cerity that goes far to impart convic tion. He spoke impressively of the re sults of prohibition in his own state, and asserted that despite what had been said about prohibition being a dead letter, the law was being strictly enforced in four-fifths of the state, and that crime and poverty had decreased enormously in consequence. The res olution was carried without dissent, and Dr. Sheldon was thanked for his address. "The visit of the author of In His Steps' has made a deep Impression by his address, and in other ways aroused special interest. Among other things, the possessor of an autograph-book containing signatures of some of the most eminent men of the times ' was delighted to add Dr. Sheldon's to the number, and on the following morning a photographic artist of international repute, who has taken many great people, including King Edward and his Queen when they visited Ramsey, and whose studio itself is by reason worth a visit, secured a sitting from Dr. Shel don too." From Ramsey the partv went to Douglas, and the Alliance News writer devotes considerable space to a de scription of how the rain fell on the sea. and how "the Doctor" as they call Mr. Sheldon was very much af fected by the sight. Speaking of th display of limelight pictures, it is said: Pictures of Topeka. "The prohibition movement was in troduced by a picture of Neal Dow, with several prohibition areas in the states, Portland, Maine, and maps of some of them showing the areas marked where the iiquor trade is pro hibited by some form of local option. The series concluded by pictures of Topeka, and a good portrait of Dr. Sheldon, and. lastl by one of the mayor of Douglas. Councillor J. Sharp, who presided." ' ' - : In closing the report of the visit to the Isle of Man, the Alliance News say s : "Once again Dr. Sheldon had a most hearty reception, and once more he won the hearts of his hearers as he set forth his story of the difficulties and struggles, the triumphs, successes, and blessings of prohibition in Kansas. A resolution of thanks to him, with which were included thanks to the L" K. A. for securing his presence in the island, was adopted, as was one moved bv Mr. Musk and seconded by Mr. Douglas. thanking his worship the mayor for presiding. It is not likely i Mr. Sheldon will forget his visit to Mona s Isle, even tnoun tne weatner was not the best, for he had a hearty welcome from a!!, and it is certain many Manx temperance reformers were encouraged, cheered, and stimu lated by his presence. Certainly noth ing would delight them more than to hear of a return visit from him. espe cially if it could be soon." RELIGIOUS THOUGHT. MARKETS TODAY. Dry Weather Causes Excite ment in Wheat.

Rev. John Lee Allison, Presbyterian, Washington. LAST WORDS. If a man ever utters his true convic tions at any time it is when he speaks his last words. Final words are the ones that usually live and wield the posthumous influence. The deathbed message has furnished a text for many a sermon and many a song. Rev. W. A. Frye, Methodist. Lansing, Mich. A HIGHER LIFE. We must build a higher intellectual and spiritual life. A sound mind and body are necessary before we can pro ceed, and we must have a spirit of love and forget anger by embodying the spirit inculcated by God by persistent faith in God nnd rejecting all wrongs. Rev. P. G. Sears, Episcopalian, Me ridian. Miss. LOVE'S POWER. Let love conquer your hearts, and the world will make way for your com ing, and we shall startle the world bv the originality of our unselfishness. If I speak with the tongues of men and angels, but have not love. I am become as sounding brass or a clanging cym bal. Let us have love. Dr. Donald D. MacLaurin. Baptist, Brooklyn. FAITHFULNESS. Faithfulness is a virtue we need to value, to cultivate, to follow consist ently in all things faithfulness to our God, to our principles, to one an other. We Christians of today are on trial, at the front, in the thick of the fight. Let there be no wandering, no panic, no yielding, no base retreat. Rev. St. Clair Hester, Episcopalian, Brooklyn. FIRST STEP IN KNOWING GOD. Trust is the easiest thing in life. It is life's earliest active instinct. All life begins in trust. It is movement along the line of least resistance. It is the thing we can do without trying, without reason, without even loving. To trust all you have got t do is to trust. This, then.-ts the first step in knowing God. T6u ' must trust Jesus completely. Rev.' T. ' S. , "McClelland. Congregationallst, Newport; R. I. Chicago, May 22.
