Tho quaint two and a half story brick houso In West Spring field, In a small panelled w lndow of which Miss Luclnda Day kept a cantllo lighted to greet her lover who did not return, has a rcmarkablo his tory. It Is partly covered with woodbine, roses bloom over Its north side in summer, nnd it has a wide chimney and a long sloping roof. It Is tho oldest houso In town, n brick In the east wall bearing the data 1754, which was tho date when tho houso was built by Josiah Day. grand father of Miss Day. 1 hero had lived with Miss Day her sister Eunice, wife of the Itev. Dr. Isaac Bliss, a missionary to 1 urkoy. It Is Mrs. Bliss that a tradition of the houso concerns. When sho was a child, 10 years old, a strange physician took up his residence In town. Ono night while tho child wns sleeping In a room on the second story some one climbed by a ludder through tho window, and. seizing Kunlco. plaeed her 111 a canvaa sack. He run across tho broad common In front of tho house, but the child's screams awoke her parents, and they pursued so closely that the kl lnapner dropped tho child and escaped, Suspicion pointed to the Btrango physician, and shortly afterward ho loft fo parts unknown. In a lower room of the houso are several ba)o nct thrusts In n wall panel, and there Is a mended panel in the door, marks left by soma of Slmj's rebels, who were encamped in town during tho nttarc on thonrscnulat Hprlnglleld, Jan. 23, 1787. Capt. Luke Da), tho leader of tho Insurgents, could not save his relatives In tho Day houso from the lawlessness of bis fol lowers. 1 he rebels took possession of the house, and seized what the) could And to cat. Includ ing some pork from a barrel. Tho floor bears the marks of tho nxe. which was used to cut ths pieces of meat Into more convenient shape. Miss Day's mother was ulono In the house, hid in n dark room tn the cellar. There has been a tradition that nn under ground passageway for use during Indian at tacks was made to the river, and a long, slight elevation In tlio greensward is cited as proof of this. The garret ix tilled with curiosities, in cluding nn old fashioned foot stove, a big baby rocker secured by the Da) s from the Pynehons, first settlers of Sprlngtteld; a spinning wheel, a tape loom, nn ancient leaden sun dial used for years on a post in front of the house, and many other Interesting and autlquo things.

Beforo he obtained employment on tho elevated road he was bupcrlntemlent of tho Franklin avenue surfneo road, Ono of his subordinates on tho Franklin nvcnuo road was Jnmcs Klrkland, a brother-ln law of tho Presldont, Loftus Woods.

I saw his will long beforo wo wcro engaged, nnd that was three months n go, and by that will he loft all his propertv to his son. I guess he hasn't changed the will.

Mr. John Mattan wad tn tho city this week from his tlinbor limits In tho upper Ottawa valley. He enmo down for shanty supplies and to haven look nt the city folk, ho said, beforo going into tho bush for ths winter. Of courso his friends wcro pleased to soo him nnd get his annual report on tho condi tion of game nnd the hunting In the north coun try. In discussing these matters Mr. Mattan quoted ns his authority Joo HIcurd, who lives on a little clearing on the outskirts of ono of the lumber limit's farms. Joo is a fanner In a small backwoods way, and hunter and guldo botwoen seasons. "Well." said Mr. Mattan. "Joo tells mo this has been n very remarkable sensoti.

Ho is so discouraged that ho threatens to put up his rlfloand traps nnd biro In my shanty for tho winter ns a chop per. Joo sums up the season In this way. Tho early part promised well for deer; tho woods seemed full of them. Then tho bears came out, and they wero so blamed thick they would havo chased evory deer awav had it not been for tho bluoborrles. There never beforo was such a crop of berries; they simply colored tho faro of tho country and gave It a very odd appoaranee. Well, nfter a tlmo tho bears got no fat from eat ing berries that tho could not run fast enough to ehaso tho deer. Hut tho beurs wcro soon driven olf for wont of food, for In Bonio way tho partridges rot wind of tho berry crop, and in they flocked from all directions. The bush about there was simply alivo with them, nnd tho noise of their flying about nnd drumming on the down timber made one think a thunderstorm was rag ing nil da) long. 1 ho bluoberries v nnlshcd, but there was trouble In storafortho partridges. Tho state of affairs In somo way leaked out and tho foxes wero not long In sizing up the sit uation. Here wan a ehaneo to make the feath ers fly, nnd they promptly Imorovod It. In they trotted from all parts of the district lit king their chops In antlctpntlonot tho fcastnwnltlng them. Ono could not tnko a poop Into tbo woods with out seeing their bushy brown tails whisking about through thn underbrush. '1 bey snapped up tho partridges right and left, until It looked llko nn oxplodcd feather bed wherovcr tho berry bushes gro w. After a time the birds, finding thrmsclvrn reduced to a small but much sought after ml norlt), took the hint nnd t.lerd out. 'Ihcn tho foxes found the) had uvcrdono the thing. 1 here was nothing left to cat. It was a ense of popula tion having outrun the menim of Hitbslstence. ltc) nnrtl scratched his cunning head and sought iv solution of tho problem. Ho soon discov ered Hint down tho river wero the cloarlngs and tlio scattered farms of a few farm ers Ho nlso drew the Inference that upon theso farms would bo poultry roosts. So down country tho foxes trotted and soon tho fanners' wives began to miss fat hens nnd tur keys They continued to disappear, and soon tho foxes bocamo so bold thnt the) successfully tackled young pigs straying nbout in the fields. The fanners tried guns, unit they tried traps, nnd finally tbey tried tire. Piles of slumps nnd brush were nrrangod around the edgooftho clearings and sot nn flro nt night to keep tho foxes from venturing out of tho bush. It suc-c-eded very well. But adry spell came on; the flro got into the bush nnd burned up tho foxes, to gether with 50,000 worth of plno tlmbor. Joo Rleardsald it destroyed his cabin and bum, nnd that was why ho moved out, went over to the branch, and squatted on a bit of the limits' hay farm, where my foreman found him when bo went up with the shantymen this fall. Joe offered to go Into the shanty and chop to pay for hts new homestead. That Is why he is not hunt ing. After a man has bad such hard luck I cannot refuse him a little help."

Ono Maine man, nt least, has mined gold enough from his native soil to pny his way to richer diggings, and has gone to try his luck in Alaska. He is N. B. Jackson, an old California miner, who gained more knowledge than wealth In the years spent among the Pacific placers, and who, since his return from the West some dozen or more years ago, has devoted all of his time to an attempt to trace the mother lode by the yellow dust and odd nuggets found In tho sands and gravol of Swift River In Oxford county. It Is a turbulent Uttlo tribu tary of the Androscoggin, and for yo-ira has been famous for Its occasional gold Whero the wealth comes from no one has yet bcon able to ascertain, but Mr. Jackson and his sons havo mude a good living in prospecting along Its bottom iu the season of scant water in summer time. On ono of his prospecting expeditions Mr. Jackson discovered a vein of gold near the town of Byron. This was seveli years ago, and the discovery filled Byron with a heterogeneous population. In which might havo been found half the tramps that bad wintered In the State. Sev eral mining companies were organized, but the public had not forgotten the great gold mining swindle of the early seventies, and stock could not be glv en away. Mr Jackson, however, took out pa)lngquantltiesof dust, ana succeoded in tracing tho voln over Into Cnnaduto a point where, since thnt time, tho Canadians nave found gold In paylngquantltles. After his return from that prospecting tour Mr. Jackson tried to organize a company to work tbe vein, but It was no use. He had found promising nny streaks, he said, and thero was not a quarter of a mile, from Byron over into Canada, that ho did not find gold. Inoneplaco on tbe lode be found n nugget about the size nf an ordinary cuff button. It wns said to be tho largest nugget of gold ever found In tbe State, notwithstanding tho rich finds In the St, Fran cis ltiver, up on the northeastern border line, where some of the settlers bAve mude good wages washing out the gravel of the river bed. ooino sLorr on the yukon.

Notwithstanding tho Archdeacon's de cision, nbout 150 of the 200 persons attending services In tho Mission favored tho movemout to organlzo a parish. They decided to got the matter under way Im mediately, nnd mado arrangements to hold a meeting on last Monday night for tho purposo of organizing.

He wanted to tako possession, he Slid. Lawyer Stlllwell informed the Archdeacon that he would hold him to account If he took possession forcibly.

He advised tbo majority faction to give up the building and to surrender all the books and papers connected with the Mission House, nnd then get a temporary building to hold services In. This was agreed upon, and Varian Hall, on Woodlawn Heights, was selected as a temporary place of worship. Both factions will appeal to Bishop Potter to settle tho trouble. INDIFFERENCE TO IDE GUURCB. Tbo Microscope or Faith Heeded to Discern tbe Beauties or Christianity. The Rev. Robert K. Wick, pastor of tho Wayne Street Reformed Church In Jersey City, preached last night the first of a scries of ser mons on ziuestlons which he had sent to promi nent citizens with a request for answers. His subject last night was, " Why do so many mon of good moral and business standing maintain an attitude of Indifference toward the Church t ' "This question," said Mr. Wick, "puzzled mo long before I entered tho ministry. The only way an answer could be had was from thoso immediately concerned. I sent out two hundred letters and received ono hundred re plies from business men of all nationalities and creeds. These answers I havo grouped under several general heads. Very many said that the indifference was duo to tho incompetency of ministers. This often is only too true. Ministers, however, aro but ambassadors from God, and tbu Word receives no forco or power from them. Others sa) that they keep away from church bcciuse of the number of Inconsistent Christians. 'Ihls reason might us well bo advanced for the refusal of a $5 gold piece because yesterday a counterfeit coin wus palmed off on you. Another ru ison udvuueed was that the) buve so man) other things to do This rouson camo from far the largest number of m) correspondents. This, in other words. Is allow Ingthu glitter of tho almighty dollar to obscure the glory of God. (iodlias no objection to n man getting money, but ho objects to money getting him. "Othor reasons given are luck of sympathy nnd a disinclination of men to havo their eon sciences quickened. Ono man has summnrired ull this In saying that tho carnal heart Is against God. This Is a terrible accusation for a man to mako a niust a man's best friend. Some people do not wish to be Christianized. The whole sub ject narrows down to tho fnct that these men are indifferent toward tho Church becnuso thoy lack tlio one essential thing, the spirit of God. " Lax homo training of the young is responsi ble more than nny thing else for this (nditfei onto. This is bonio out by tho boast of tbu ltoiuan Church that any child who has been under Its training for eight years never forsakes the Church or grows lukewarm. 'Oho me a child who has been raised in tha Catholic faith until he is eight years old and then you may do as you pleaso with him but be will dlo in tho faith.' Thiswas said by a distinguished Arch bishop of the Catholic Church In England. Anothor reason for tho Indifference Is becauso the spiritual and unseen does not appeal as strongly as the tangible. You need the micro scope of faith to dtscorn tbo beauties of Christianity." DR. ADBOTT'S STUDT OF PAUE. Ha Says Tbat It Caused lllm to Recast Ills Wbole Tbeolocy. Th, Rev. Dr. Lyman Abbott delivered yester day evening, in Plymouth Church, Brooklyn, the second of bis sorics of lectures on the life and letters of tbe Apostl, Paul, tbe especial" topic of tho lecture being Paul's early life. As at the first lecture, a largo congregation was present. In his Introduction Dr. Abbott said: "Tho spirit of modern study la Investigation, and Investigating methods are pursued In all study. No ono Is supposed now to reach a result, give It out, and expect a student to tako this result for grautod. Tho duty of the teacher Is to lead the student along, and It is in this spirit that I am trying to conduct theso lectures. During my study of PauliI found It nocesBary to recast my whole theology and my conception of Christianity. I do not, however, auk you to accept my conclusions, but I hope to lend ) ou, under my guldume, to somo conclu sions of your own " Whether Dr. Abliott meant thnt tbe recasting of bis theology and bis conception of Christi anity wast anted by a rccont study of Paul In ireparlug tho present eoureo of lectures or hy lis original stud) of Paul did not appear In tbe lecture, which was conllncd In tho main to the Apoitk'mnrly life. Aftir tbo lecture Dr. Abbott gave thecongre Rillon a i haute to question him on any point connected vvitli the subject. Somebody rose and asked him if ho thought that thu account of Stophen'asproch at his trial was correctly re ported Dr. Abbott replied' "Yes, I do. Of cuui&c there was no ono to take down his words lltterutim nnd verbvllm. but, on the whole, it was probably done more ac curate!) than if thonverogenewsiupcr reporter of modern times had iliinu It." In answer to another question, Dr. Abliott said that lie thought Christ was the incarnation nf (lOd.und that In fact He was God preso t unearth. The fact that Josus snid that ho was only the Hon and that tho Father was grenlcr seemed to Dr. Abbott to mean only that tbe manifi station was not so great us He who per formed It. MltS. MARTHA R.

NEW YORK 'LW ' YvU TUB RELIGIONS OF ItiDIA. An Interesting tddrroe by tbo secretary or th, Jain teioclallon. Vlnchand It. Gandhi of Bombay delivered an address at Now Century Hall, 500 Fifth avenue, yesterday morning, on tho "Religions of India." Mr. Gandl is Secretary of the Jain Association, a religious soclct) of India which is said to have 0,000,00(1 members. As a delegate to the Con gress or Religions during tbo World's Fair Mr. Gnndhl became known In this country as an au thority ut on tlic life and religion of India. Ills present v Islt to this cou try has tho doublo pur poso of stud)lng our educational methods nnd of endeavoring to give thn people of tho West a true itleaof Iudlnn llfo nnd thought. Before his dcpirture for America tho Jains of India conferred on Mr. Gundhl the titloof "Star of Jalnistn " He sild vestcrdny: " When wo study tho condition of religion In India, ns In nny country, wo must go back to tho oarl) dnys beforo tho priests claimed tho sole right of teaching. According to tho origi nal Brahmin philosophy, life wns divided into four stages of development which were univer sal!) recognlxod. A person was dealt with ac cording to his needs in each stage. Tho teacher studied tho child to Dnd out In which direction how ould make tho best progress, and the pupil had to bo subservient to tho teacher. Tho four stagos of a man's life were: First, as a pupil; second, as a householder, a period of public llfo; third, a period of retirement and mental quiet, when ho wm known as a 'dweller In tho forest;' fourth, a period of giving up of the impurities of life and of becoming fit for a teacher of mon. The Jains do not interpret thoso stages in oxactly this way. but they aro practically tho basis of thslr educational system. Tho high pressure of West ern civilization Is unknown In India, and such words as 'nervous prostration' cannot bo trans lated into Indian medic cl terms. You can never eradicate such nllllctions In your country until you chnngo your ideas aud make the re ligious uud secular life one. "Buddha believed In tha different stages of development, but he ovolvid tho ldoa of re incarnation. Instead of limiting them to a slnglo existence Ho taught that man should simply drift, following the eoursu of nature. 'Where Is the norcsslty of living a moral and an lntol loctual Ufa r said ho. ' We aro nil histening to a spiritual goal. Why accelerate this progress I' 1 be Jains reply: 'The sooner you make progress the better ) ou become. In relying on the forces of nature ono may movo forward slowly, but ono cannot becomo a storehouse of power to help lift those around him' That Is why tho Jain faith has grown so rapidly in India. "Over a.OOC) ears ago the Brahmins became an exclusive teaching class, und made it one of their principles that tho lower class should bo kept In Ignorance. This haa kept India from advancing In spite of tho efforts of civilization. The Jains are striving to enlighten tho pcoplo and to proclaim the equality of men a system of democracy. They teach thut caste is an In stitution founded on the arrogance and pride of a priesthood, and is not of divine origin. Tho Jains gav o to the peoplo a codo of Interpretation for tbe scriptures of the world, so that their dif ferences and similarities can be harmonized. There are castes In tho West as well as the East. In India they urn vertical. Thore Is tbo caste of tho carpenter, the potter, &c. In America they are horizontal, beginning with the depths of tho slums und ending with tho multimillionaire. So long as competition continues, and one man tries to better himself at tbe expense of another, so long the problem of society will remain un solved. In speaking of tbo good accomplished by th Jains, Mr. Gandhi said that they had almost dono away with animal -sacrifice, bad estab lished hospitals in different places for both men and animals, and had everywhere taught their countrymen to lead a pure life. Ho spoko with contempt of tho foreigners who, from su perficial observation, attempt to wrlto of Indian life and manners, and he cited as examples tho stories which havegainod currency regarding the car of Juggernaut with Ita victims, and the casting of Infants Into tbe Ganges. "If people are killed by tbe car of Juggernaut," he said, "It is only by accident, such ns happens with your cable cars: and, as for women throw ing their children into the Ganges, I never even heard of It until I came to Chicago in 181) J."

Pastor Maurice) PenMeldFlliesof tho First Baptist Church set apart Thanksgiving week last year as a season of self denial for the members of his congrega tion, who were to do without luxuries, dellca clc and some supposed necessaries, and con tribute to the church the amount saved In money. Numbered envelopes wero distributed to the members, so that tabs could bo kept on all. and the amount of their contributions be mado known. At tho round-up on tho feundny following Thanksgiving over $400 was netted for tho church fund. So successful was the ex periment that it was repeated this y ear, and to day the announcement wns made that tho "self denial" contributions amounted to a little over $300. The falling off Is accounted for by tho fact that tho members all Increased their weekly contributions during tho ) ear. To celebrate "self denial" Sunday Pastor Fikcs appointed six young women members us ushers at the morning scrv ice and to gather tho regular morning collection. Misses Martha Poland, Kmily Cnrll, Mary Coleman, Suslo Brown, .Mum Btbblns nnd Mary llcegle wire stationed nt tho iiinlii entrance, and they escorti d to seats all comers excepting tho regu lar pcwholdcrs. Usually the morning attend ant o nl tno first cnureu ismnuo up principally of women, hut thu ushers found that tho new a of their upptilulmunt had been spread, and they were surprised at the number of )oiingmiii who nutted in tho vestibule until they could bo properly csturtcd to scats. Pastor Flkcs re marked tint he had more young men In the "omen etirni rs"of his church than ever before. Before thn women started to tako the collection. Pastoi Flkes rtelted an npproprluto passage of beripturt, nnd us tho baskets wero passed around ho remarked thut the collection ought to bo a good one, as ho hoard v ery little sll er dropping in, nnd took It for grunted that the peoplo wcro giving paper money. After the regular collection twelve little girls, dressed in white, were started around tno church to gather In tho " self denial " envelopes. Pastor Hkts has Introduced a number of in novations aiiito lie came to the Hrst Church.
