Why. then. does devotion to a good system of rules and observances like that of the Pharisees lead its followers astray? Partly because the praetiee of relying upon rules ar.d conventlona, however good. lessene. a mans power of meeting the unforeseen emergencieB and crises of life. Next to the boy who comes tp col? lege with bad habits, the one who is in most dan? ger is he who has had such superlatively good habits that an inlraction of a single one of them breaks down the barrier upon which he has re lled, and leaves him without a svstem of lnner defences. There are two kinds of degeneracy: one which comes from too little reliam*. upon law, anotm r which comes from too much. The man whom we tommonly call a degenerate suflfers from the former cause. He has broken ?o many laws that law as a whole ceases to have authority over bim and he becomes powerless to resist temptation from anv quarter. But there are and always have been d.-generates of tho opposite type?men who bave kept the laws that they were taught to obey untll sueh laws beeome the only authority which controla them and the only standard which they recognize. ar.d thev are powerless to feel the stim Ulus of anythlng better. There is a point beyond which drill ceasea to be a help and becomes a o??_?; tbere Is a sel cf clrcumstances where - .... person who has been subjected to too much control ls as helpless as the one who has been sub? jected to too little. ,. , A man of bad antecedents and surroundlngs who \tee that they are bad has higher pofesibili Bh the hntn Wbo lives under much better rules but seea n- ither need nor room f<>r improve? ment For hlm whose Ideals are ahead ot his praetiee even if that prictlce Is low. ther. is alwaya j'r.r hlm who has sunk his ld< ;<!;= to the 1- vel ot bis praetiee, even if tbat praetiee is h'gli. there is no hope at all. , ?TWO men went up inlo the temple to pray; the one a Pharisee, and the other a pttbHtan.

Ar. we going to rest cont.pt witb being Pharisees, or are we really trying to be Cbristtai^? Let-eacfc of us look Into his own heart to-d_y ind Imd the answer. What is vour ideal of success in life? 1* it to beeome a reputable member of good soeiety and achieve substantial results in the way of fortune, family and friends, on whicb you can look with increasing complacency? Or is it to try to n ake the world better by a struggle which will he full of dangers and mistakes and misumlerstand ir.gs and ln which to the very end of life you ar-~ likely to remain far frcm the realization of your highest hopes? ln the former case you are a Phari? see no i atter how mucb you may try to disguise the' fact In tbfe latter case you are a Christian. no matter what doubts may hold you back from venturin . to call your.-i if by that name. Every oollege man, as be goes cut into ihe world. i= exposed io a change of atmosphere not unlike that through which he passed ln coming from school to college. If during his college life he has lo identfiy goodness with the keeping of a complex set of rules and observances. he is m great danger lt <? almost Inevitable that under the new conditions which he meets he wiii dlsobey some of the=e rules or disregard some of these observances. If he has placed his trust In keeping the letter of tbe law 'le breaking of one rule is apt lo be fol? lowed by the breaking of a great many others This experience is a tvpical ot>e. Every man and everr race which relies for protection on Ihe text of tbe law rather than on Its spirit. is menaced by this risk o'f complete failure ln emergencies. Gentlemen of the graduating class: To the eol leEe man more than to any one else this broad view of Christian duty should appeal. He of all man? kind has least occaslon for Pharisaic complacency. The self-made man. who. by hls own efforts, has rtflen from the bottom of the ladd< r. may have a certain amount of excuse for dwelling on his own arbjovement .. Sueh as they are, he can at least claim them for his own. You can make no such claim The life which vou bave lived and are going to Bve bas been made possible for you by the ef? forts of vour fathi rs. What you do represents, for the most part. not an achierement. but an indebted? ness?an Indebtedness which. with God's help, you are going to'rapay by transmitting in turn to your sons" the posslbilltles of wider life and more lntelll Tb!<~ debt to the past and thls duty to the future Is something which we have tried to keep in view during a!l vour educatlon here. Not by the clnss room alone and not by the teaching force alone, but by the whole atmosphere of the piace and the inspiratlon of lts graduates. dead and livlng. we have strlven to take vou outslde of yourselves and make your life a part of the life of ages. You have not come h"_he solely or r-rlmarlly to learn make what the world calls a success. Many of you in ihe vears tt- come will be. reproaehed witb the fact thru your power of getting money or office has not been Increaaed in proportion to tbe time tbat roa bave sper.t in thia piace. So far as this reproaqh is based upon any actual waste of our time in idleness. we must take it severely to heart. But so far as it is due to the-fact that we make public service instead of self-service the measure of success, we may well glory in the re proaeh. In science the pursult of truth is more important tlfan the purmtit of gain. ln the history of every nation the self-sacHnce of its members counts for more than thelr self-aggran.hzcrr.erf The wnrth of a man's life is to be ir.easured. not by the things wbicb ha has done for himself. but by the things whlcb be has done for the world around him and after- him. Every man who has cbnsecrated hia life to an ideal birger than he can hope to eompass bas thr- klnd of falth which moves the world. whether lie calls it falth in God or falth ln duty. or shrinks from oaliing it by any name at all and goes on livinu for his fellow men. without eyer b^ipg able to formulate the reason why. Each rrian firds his hlghest spirltual development. not by working out hls own salvhtion alone and for him? self, but by losing the thought. of self ln the thought of others. This ls the Christian life; thls is tbe fniih by which men are saved. DR. MACKAY TO WELLESLEY GLRLS. Tells the Graduates that Character is the Handmaid of Culture. Wellesley, Mass.. June 25.?A sermon befora tha graduating class at Wellesley College was preached to-day by Dr. Donald Sage Mackay, of New-York Clty, In Memorlal Chapei. He took as subject, "Character. the Supreme Attainment of LJfe." "Character to-day," he said. "has beeome the handmaid of culture. The word character has been HiOgiilfd to the realm of the commonplace. It has beeome almost a cant word. and the cheapenlng of a word means the depreclation of an Idea. Tha word character was born centuries before tbe Chrls tir n < ra. and meant the too! wlth which the Greek sculpior did his finest work." Dr. ?Mackay drew a comparlson between character an i reputation, likc-ning reputation to "the outward robe of Hfe, which the world flngers and feels the value of." and character to "the priestiy vestment of the soul." "Character," he sald, "ls not lnberent like genlus, nor a burst of inspiratlon. Like the charaeter of the old Greek Bcuipcors, it ls the product of Ilne ut- <n line, with faith, prayer and conscience the de tej-mining toctora. 'Experience ia the teacher of fcols. but it gra.__ ates aalnts. All tha world la a ahep, all men ar^d women ara xnera eculptors, and one man, ln his time. uses tnan. tools plac*d there by the hand of God." . , -- ? BACCALAUREATE SERMON AT AMHERST. Amherst, Maes, Juna 2B?Tha Rev. Dr. George Harris, president of Amherst Ollege. preached the baccalaureate sermon ln the college church to-day. Presldent Barris'a ?_* waa II Peter 1, 10: "Give dlllgence to maka your calllng and election sure." He sald ln part: It rfay seem. ln the present condltion of aoclety. that the individual ia of slight consequence. There are combihationa, corporations, unlons. The lnitia? tive of the Individual la lost; he himself is lost in the crowd. But the fact Is that these very condi? tions call for efficient men. The heads of great corporations and railroads say. "We are always looking for men, for efficlent men. Corporations and railroads and rnllls do not manage themselves. Intelligence and responsibility are all the more needed. i ?_-?

Factions Wage Bitter Strife Over Supreme Council Rates. Members of the New-York Council of the Royal Arcanum were exeited yesterday as a result of the meeting of the councll on Satur? day night. at tbe Masonic Temple. because of the bitter feeling displayed by two factiena and because nothing came of the discussion. which lasted until nearly 2 o'elock yesterday morning. It was mnnifest at the meeting that a majority of the members present were in favor of ~on demning the action of the Snpretne Council in making rates of assessment whlcb nre expected to force many of tbe older ni .nhr-rs "Ut of the body, but the mlribrity managed to prevent tbe local eotnu '"? fr.r-.i giving exuression to that feeling.

Mr. Burnham and hls friends argued that it would be foollsh to eondemn the Supreme Council before knowing if tiie Assess? ments were right or wrong.

When he flrst bought the automobile Collins used to drive lt down to the station house nearly a*jmff day. but after the novelty wore off he mlsaed a day occaslonaliy. Colllns owned a horse named Nellie. Colllna was a cavalryman during the Clvll War, and liked Nellie, he sald, because she was "the most varled crltter that ever drew breath." "Why," sald Collins.

Then Mr. Wickes, of the committee. offered a new set of resolutions, which dchtmnced the Su? preme Council ln urimeasured terms for lts actlon, as Intended to force out the old mem? bers of the order. That enabled the speakers of the minority to keep up the discussion until near 2 a. m., and as the counpll could not, by Its bylaws, hold a meeting to receive a report on Sunday, the executive session flnally ceased without actlon on the latest aet of resolution*. Somebody moved that the eommMtee of the whole rise and there was a general rush for the doors. Mr. Wickes made a flnal effort to have his resolutions carried. and he and some of hls friends gathered at the platform and voted for them. but Mr. Porland sald yesterday that he would report at the next regular meeting of the council that no action had been taken. It was said by some of the maj-rity yester? day that one of the minority speakers. who spoke againat time in order to prevent actlon, was the chairman's father. r^eoree W. Dorland, sr.

Advert!_ements were published yesterday calling for membershlp in an "Arcanum life insurance ciub." which was to be formed. Members of the New-York coun? cil said they were not engaged in any movement to aid withdrawals from the order ln the interest of any life insurance company. What they wanted. they .aid, wai to have a reform and fair ratea ln tha order. WANT CLASSES SEPARATE. Women Principals Call Present Sys? tem Im moral and Costly. The ..-"-oeiation of Woman Principals of Monh._t tan nnd The Bronx has prepared a report condemn ing the consolldatlon of publlo schools and the maintenance of mixed classes on the grounds of economy and efficlency. In Manhattan and The Bronx tbere are many school buildings which contain two independent school orgnnlzations each. a grammar department under a man principal and a prlmr.ry department under a woman principal. lt has been the object of the board of superintendents of the I~>epartment of Education to consolidate these schools and do away with the extra salary. The _om_n principals deny that either better I supervision or less expense is the result of these cor.solidations. After describing the multitude of i duties which fall to the lot of the ordinary principal . of a large school. the report continues: The policy of mixed classes is objectionable on moral and educational grounds. Selentlflc investi? gation has proved that the physlcal and mental '? growth of bovs and girls of the same age is not parallel. Thev should therefore not be subjected to the same tralnlr.g. The teaching of boys and glrls together at the same age of adolescence tends to foster lmmoral impu'lses. The influence of a maia . teacher upon girls at thli period, or of a woman teacher upon bovs. ls not tbe proper influence, and therefore should "be avoided by cstablishing separate schools for bovs and for girls. Young children of both sex. s should be in the care and under the control of women. Thls is best se? cured bv the establishment of a primary depart? ment with mixed classes Maturing girls need a woman's supervision. This. again. is heat secured by the establishment of girls' grammar scnoola. The a~-gument of economv fails when . crutinized ln tbe llght given bv statlstlcs. A mlxed school of flfty classes costs $78.0f . A boys' school nf twenty flve classes costs ??.<__. and a girls school of twenty-flve classes costs $3A248. Thus it is seen that a saving of $8,790 a year ls made by the separa? tion of schools. WILL SELL TWO HEARTS New-Rochelle Carpenter Offers His to Highest Bidder.
