Thoro was a woman who noticed thd actions and conduct of the man of God and she said to her hus band, 'Let us build a little room and place therein a bed, and bowl and pitch er that he might make It his home,' "Tho suirsostlon evidently met with the approval of tho husband, because ever afterward tho man of God enjoyed this hospitality. I sometimes thought she might navo oeen a now woman or mo olden times, because no mention Is made of the husband. "You never hear of some old lobstora unless they aro fortunate enough to marry1 a woman who docs things and their namo Is nlways mentioned In con nection with what tho wife does. "If you will Just lay aside your preju dice, you llttlo frizzy-headed sissies, I will help you bo you won't make the mlstako your ma made. "You know there are homes In which the advent of one, two and possibly three children fs considered a curso Instead of a blessing. God, In His providence, has often denied tho honor of maternity to some women, iiui) mere are married women who shrank from maternity, not because of ill health, but simply because they love case, because thoy love fine irarments and ability to flit llko a but terfly at some social function. grimes nave Deen ana are Doing com mitted i hands aro stained with blood and that very crime has made France tho Mt.an.Al hnllitn nf ihn wnrlit.

"Society has Just about put maternity out of fashion. When you stop to con sider tho average society woman I do not think maternity has lost anything.

Some fool moth ers encourage girls to marry for ease so they can go to the matlneo and buzz around. Some fool girls marry for monoy and some girls marry for society because by connecting their name with a certain family's they go up a rung In tho social ladder, and somo girls marry a young buck to reform him and thev aro tho hls- f gest fools In tho bunch, because he would not marry you to rerorm you.

"Look at the girls on tho auction block today. Look at the awful battle the average, stenographer and average clerk have to fight.

"I wish I could make a girl that flirt see herself as others see her. If you make eyes at a man on tho street he will pay you back. ItMoesn't mean that you are pretty. It means that If you don't care any more for yourself than that, why should he? The average man will take a girl at her personal estimate of herself, "It takes a whole lot of nerv6 for a leuow to look a girl In the face and eav, 'Will you be my wife and partner, and help me fight tho battle during life?' but I think It means a whole lot more to the girl who has to answer and fight that question. But tho fool girl loafs around and waits to bo chosen and takes Jbf first chance she gots and seems to think that If t'ney are made one, tho laws ut man can make them two again. 'The dlvorco laws aro damnable. Amer ica is first In many things that I love, but thore are many things that are a disgrace. We lead the world In crime! lead tho world In dlvorco we of our culture "Many a girl has found out after sho is married that It would havo been a good deal easier to dlo an old maid than to havo said 'yes,' and become the wlfo of somo cigarette-smoking cuss ing, damnable libertine. They will launch tho matrimonial boat and put tho oars In nnd try it once for luck, anyway, and bo we havo many women praying for unconverted husbands. "I preached llko this in a town onco and the next day I hoard of about five engagements that were broken. I can give you advice now, but if the knot is ilea, tno tiling Is dono. "I am a Roman Cathollo on dlvorco. Thcro are a whole lot of things worse than living nnd dying an old maid and one of thorn Is marrying the wrong man. So don't bo one to do that. Tho trouble with tho avcrago American girl Is she holds herself loo cheap. Sho Is Just scared to death of bolng what tho world Irrelevantly calls nn 'old maid.' LOVB NOBLEST GIFT. "Now, girls, don't simper nnd look silly when you speak about love. Thoro Is nothing silly about it, although some folks are silly because thoy nro In lov. Love is tho noblest and purest gift of God to man nnd womankind. Don't let your notions advortlso 'Man Wanted, Quick.' That is about tho surest way not to get a man. You might get a thing with breeches on, but ho Is no man. "Many a woman is an old maid bo causo she wanted to do her share, of tho courting. Don't got excited and want to hurry things along. If a man begins to net as though ho Is after you, the surest way to got him Is Just to make him feel you don't want him, un less you drive him off by appearing too indifferent. "And, girls, don't worry If you think you are not going to get a chance to marry. Some of the noblest men In tho world have been bachelors and some of tho noblest womon old maids. And wom an, for God's sake, when you do get married don't transfer tho love God gavo you to bestow on a llttlev child onto a Spitz dog or brlndlo pup. "All great women are satisfied with their common sphere In life and thinks to fill tho spot God gives them In this world as It should be filled aa a wife and mother. I tell you the devil and women can damn this world and Jesus and women can save this old world. It re mains with womanhood today to lift our social life to a higher plane. "Mothers, bo moro careful of your boys and girls. Explain these ovlls that con taminate our social life today. I have had women say to me, 'Mr. Sunday, don't you think there Is danger of talk ing too much to them when they are so young?" Not much; Just, as soon as a girl Is able to know the pure from the Impure she should bo taught. Oh, mothors, mothers, you don't know what your girl Is being led to by this fals and mock 'modesty. "Just think, what a grand thing It must be, mothers, to look back on a clean, godly life and, to have good, upright, godly children. I wish my daughter Helen was here. I have Bat and preached this sermon with her sitting on the front seat. I would thank anybody that would tell her theso things. "Thoro aro a lot of you women sitting right out thero whoso temperature has run up seven degrees Just since I havo been preaching. MARRIAGE NOT THE ONLY THING. "Don't teach your girls that the only thing In the world Is to marry. Why, some girls marry infidels because they were not taught to say 'I would not do It.' A girl Is a big fool to marry an In fidel. God says, 'Bo ye not unequally yoked wjth unbelievers.' "It has simply come to this that some body has to preach plainly, and that somebody seems to bo me "Since tho world began woman Is tho one that man sought after. He will work for you, labor he will dlo for you; but, girls, when you come down from the ped estal and make yourself easy of conquest, I don't blame the average man. "I believe thero Is o. race yet to ap pear which will ba as far superior In morals to us as we aro superior to the morals in the days of Julius Caesar, but that race will never appear until God fearing young men marry God-fearing cirls and the offspring are God-fearing. "Culture will never save the world, If these miserable human vampires wh: feed and fatten upon the virtue of wommpViood can get off with Impunity; nay, more, to be feasted and petted and coddled by so ciety, we might as well back-pedal out nnd sink In shame, for we can never see to the heights nor command the respect of the great and good. "What paved the way for tho downfall of tho mightiest dynasty proud and doughty Greece and Imperial noma? The downfall of their womanhood. The virtue of womanhood Is the rampart wall of American civilization. Break that down and with the stones thereof you can pave your way to the hottest hell and reeking vice and corruption. I tell you society that makes a distinction between the man who does wrong and the girl when she does wrong Is beneath my notice. I would not spt on It. xou Know mere are a multitude of places right here in this community that are vile. EX-3I0PEL, SAVED FROM RUM, TO FIGHT FOR CHILD Mra. Chris Hulge? Will Battle for Posseesion of Girl. "I don't want my daughter to be stamped as a charity child. She never will be placed In a public institution if I have my way. I don't know where sho is today, but I'll find her. I am now begin ning my battle for the recovery of my daughter. My first battle against rum has been won." , , .

The former model took "the pledge 'be fore Magistrate Carson, last Thursday. She was arrested on a charge of intoxica tion. Her story interested Magistrate Carson. He discharged her on condition that she would never drink again. Years ago Mrs. Hulges was a pretty girl. She posed for leading artists. Later she married Chris Hulges. who Is now In New York.

"Billy" would have preached a third sermon this afternoon but for tho fact that thousands of women decided not to wait on tho outsido of tho tabernacle while ho preached to the great audlenco that completely filled It. As it was, there were possibly 2000 of thorn waiting when tho second groat congregation started home. Ho had planned to give the same sermon thrlco during the day, but, when he found tho watting crowd was no largor ho decided not to preach tho third time. The samo Bermon is to be given tonight, when admission will be by ticket only and business women will attend In dele gations. There probably never was such an ex cited scene at a religious meeting as that witnessed In the great building when the first audience had been dismissed and the waiting thousands rushed lnsldo for seats. It took 19 minutes to empty the building, but It took only four minutes to refill it. There were more than 10,000 outaldo when the doors were opened, and ushers and policemen who' had returned to preserve order during the emptying and renlllng oc tno structure, alter re maining outside while the evangelist preached, were literally carried off their feet. Even "Ma" Sunday, wife of the preacher, had her satin dress badly torn in the mad riot. MAD BUSH FOR SEATS. A second after tho doors were opened the sawdust In the aisles was flying In the air from the stampede of tho thou sands of women's feet. Hats were knocked off and trampled upon, hairpins fell out and hair went flying about and became mixed with sawdust and shav ings. But nothing could stop the mad race for places on the benches. Police men and ushers yelled with all the strength of their lungs. They rushed In front of the torrent of women and girls. They held out their arms and tried to hold tho Invaders back. But all their ef forts were In vain. Jumping to the top of the benches tho thousands passed forward to the front rows. They stepped from the back of one bench to another. Sometimes they tumbled off and rolled In the sawdust, while others took their places and hur ried on to the places of their hearts' de Blre. And, as though by miracle, no per son waB Injured. Only a few fainted or suffered bruises. During the services IS women were treated In the emergency hospital. There were several women physicians In charge. Mrs. Joseph M.

HEREDITY GREAT FORCE. "Billy" ronsscrted his absolute belief In prenatal Influenco, and the power which a prospective mother's thoughts and notions exorcised ovor tho life of hor child. "I know of ono llttlo boy," said ho, "who at tho tender ago of 9 yoars had tried nlno tlmos to kill hlmsolf. His mother wont to her physlclnn nnd beg ged him on hor knees to tell her what sho could do for him. " 'Tho child's abnormal,' said tho doctor, 'and you aro responsible. I can toll it from tho blush that's mantling your brow now. You didn't want him nnd you tried to kill him before he was born.' "Tho boy," continued "Billy," his volco trembling with emotion, "did kill hlm solf nt the tender ago of 11. That mother committed murder." Declaring that 80 por cent, of marriage able men today aro contaminated by dis ease, and that 00 por cent, of tho abdom inal operations performed on womon are due to this cause Sunday caused the eyes of his fomlnlne listeners to grow wido with horror as ho launched hlB vig orous plea for them to use care nnd cau tion In the selection of their husbands, "NInotv per cent, of tho cases of blind ness aro due to this ovll," he told them. "Oh, Tny friends, you mothers are worso fools to encourage your daughters to marry somo old lobster because, his father his monoy nnd because you think that whom he dies she can havo lino clothes and rido in an auto Instead of hoofing It. Somo girls marry a young buck to reform him. Tho fools I Ho wouldn't marry them 10 rerorm tneni." Mr. Sunday charged tho women to re member that ho spoke to them not as a man, but first of all as a mlnster of the Gospel. When ho had finished there wasn't a dry eyo In the placo. He charged that society has Just about put maternity out of fashion. He ox corlated. In vitriolic words, the women who refused to believe that giving birth to a child wns tho noblest function which woman could perform. APPEALS FOR MOTHERHOOD. "I am sure thoro Is not nn angel in heaven," he said, "who would not bo glad to come to earth and be honored with motherhood lf God would grant her that privilege." It wns a wonderful audience that drank In his words. Old women nnd young women, gray-halrod grandmothers and the "frizzy haired, bleached blond sls bIos" equally came In for "Billy's" warn ings, and If thcro wero any women pres ent not cognizant of the p..,Tld sins of society when they came It waB not long before Sunday had convinced them of the reality of thlngB. "I hope to see tho time," he sliouted, "when sexual hygiene Will be a part of the public school curriculum, and I'd rather have my children take this sub ject than the Greek and Latin now crammed down their throats." Fortified by a maBs of statistics, "Billy" raced up and down the platform and poured forth a volley of vituperation on the 'neads of those doctors and mldwlves "who have made malpractice, the crime of crimes In America." "Statistics which I have gnthered from the palatial apartment houses In big cities where a man has got to make a fat salary Just to pay his rent show that to 70 families there were only seven babies," said Sunday. "In another In stance thero wero SO families and only two babies. Down In the slums, how ever, you will And ns many as 200 babies to 50 families. I've come to the conclu sion that the stork Is a mighty discrimi nating bird." Long before Sunday started to preach his first sermon of the several to be de livered during the day for women only, there waB a crowd clamoring for admit TWO PICTURES ea rly ns 6 o'clock this morning to hear to their sex. tance to tho tabernacle Tho policemen, ushers and every other man wero nBked to leave tho structuro before ho started to speak. Women began to assemble nt tho taber nacle boforo daybreak In order to got Inside to hear the famous sermon Some of them wero thero beforo C o'clock, and after that hour there wns a stream of them pouring Into the big wooden building. By 8 o'clock thcro was an nu dlcnco of more than 1000 women present. The anxloiiB listeners came from every section of tho city and Journeyed hero from towns many miles distant. Hundreds of them rushed to tho tabernacle as soon ns their hUBbands had started for tnelv day's work. Breakfast dishes were "stacked" and tho week-end sweeping nnd house cleaning was postponed Tho women wero bound to hear "Billy" preach some tlmo during the day and tney started early because they wanted to make suro that they would get In side. OLD WOMEN COME EARLY The first woman to arrive was 84 years old. Sho was Mrs Susan A. Johnson, of 3C1C Chestnut street, a widow for 43 years, Mrs. Johnson said sho was so interested In "Billy" and hla preaching that ehe camo very early In order that she might be suro to get a seat Another early arrival was Miss M. M. Stevens, of New York, who Is visiting with friends at 2107 North 13th street. Sho Is 75 oars old. TonlgHt, when admission will be by ticket only, business women are to at tend In delegations. Many of tho women took their bnblcs with them to tho tabernacle, who wore cared for bj scores of nurses In the nursery. "IS IT WELL, WITH THEE." The sermon of the day was on tho toxt, "Is It well with thee; Is It well with thy husband; Is It well with thy children?" The words of tho text were taken from tho 26th verso of tho 4th chapter of Second Kings. Women who have failed to become mothers because of their desire for ease and pleasure camo In for sound rebuke. It was a plain talk nnd ono that appealed for tho highest principles of womanhood. In his appoal for motherhood, Sunday said: "You know that thero aro homes In which the advent of one, two and pos sibly throe children Is considered a curse instead of a blesslrg. Sod has often do .ilcd tho blessing of maternity to some women. But there aro married women who shrink from maternity, not because ..f 111 health, but simply because thoy love fine garments and want to flit llko a. butterfly nt some social function. PLEADS FOR CHILDHOOD. "Climes have been and aro being com mitted; hands aro stained with blood and that every crlmo has made France the charnel house of the world. In America, wo of our boasted Intelligence and weulth, we are fast approaching tho samo doom, until or unless It behooves somebody with grit and courage to preach against tho prevailing sins and run the risk of Incurring tho displeasure of people who divert public attention from their own vlleness rather than con demn themselves for tho way they are living. They say tho man who Is preach ing against It Is so vulgar, rather than the one who did It was stinking and vile. "I want to tell you women that I havo never delivered this sermon In any town or any place where I have been without feeling embarrassed, but It has to be done, nnd I will tell you right now If you think you won't like what I say you can go now, or else keep your mouth shut when you get out of here. "I am sure there Is not an nngel In heaven that would not be glad to come to earth and be honored with motherhood If God would grant her that privilege. What a grand thing It must be. at tho end of your earthly career, to look back upon a noble and Godly life, knowing you did all you could to help leave this old world to God and made your contributions In tears nnd In prayers nnd taught your offspring to be God-fearing, so that when you went you would continue to produce your noble character In your children. MATERNITY OUT OF STYLE, "Society has Just about put maternity out of fashion. When you stop to con sider the average society woman I do not think maternity has lost anything. The humbler children are raised by their mothers Instead of being turned over to a governess. "Thero are too many girls who marry for other causes than lovo. I think ambi tion, Indulgence and laziness lead more girls to the altar than love; girls not aotuated by love, but simply willing to pay the price of wifehood to wear fine clothes. They are not moved by the noble desires of manhood or womanhood. "Some girls marry for novelty and some girls marry for a home. Some fool moth ers encourage girls to marry for ease so they can go to the matinee and buzz around. Some fool girls marry for money and some girls marry for society because by connecting their name with a certain family's they go up a rung In the social ladder, and some girls marry a young buck to reform hlro and they are the biggest fool3 In the bunch, because ha would not marry you to reform you "You mothers are worse fools to en courage your daughter to marry some old lobster because his father has money and when he dies majbe your daughter can have good clothes and ride In an auto Instead of hob-hoofing It. "Look at the girls on the auction block today Look at the awful battle the i average stenographed and average clerk week and wear line duds and ba on the square as much as you are without hav ing the people suspicious." Tho evangelist, following this plea for motherhood, made an earnest appeal for women to lead their husbands away from the sins and evils of the world into Christian lives He declared that they could make their homes such delightful place and. through their devoted love and kindness, make th men they have chosen aa their halo-mates prefer ihelr company and the company pf their ch4- ' SPECIAL SERMONS tho first of tho day's series of drcn rather than tho clubs, saloons and gambling place.

Jamos McCabo, E033 Tncoma street, Gcrmantown, said this morning that It cost him 12 60 and a. lot of worry to pity a stray Skyo terrier and that hereafter dogs may shift for themselves as far as ho Is concerned. Magistrate Fennock lovlcd tho flno for cruolty, but McCabe contemplated mercy, rather than cruelty when tho troublo started. Wednesday night, when ho camo home, a dog was whining nt his front door.

Delaney, affiliated with the Gen- Unitarian Christianity The story ot the evolution of the Bible Is as interesting as the tale of the creation of the stars. The Bible grew as the Jewish people devel oped, each booklet ot it being the bright light from a crowning period in that national history. Yet, to give the Bible authority qver all our beliefs is to enslave the mind to the superstition and bigotry ot the past. We should rather trust the eager present. Our confidence should be given to what satisfies our minds today. What inspires us to day la God's word to Ills living children. Parts of the Bible still possess this living power, How shall we pick them out? The Higher Crltlolsm elves the answer. If you are interested, come and hear the lecture bv Rev. Phnri. E.
