Born in Cumberland, Md.?Sketch Born in Cumberland, Md.? Rev. Dr. J. G. Butler, pastor of the Luther Flace Memorial Church, yesterday cele brated the eightieth anniversary of his birth. He preached an anniversary ser mon upon the subject of death, calling on his hearers to live every day so that they might have no fear of death. Dr. Butler chose his text from Acts xiil:36 ?"After he had served his own generation by the will of God he fell on sleep and was laid to his fathers." The speaker said: "This text is the inspired epitaph of King David. Epiitaphs are often untrue, but this suggests an outline of the truest life, an epitaph in which we might all glory. Life's highest interpretation Is servce, the service of our generation according to the will of God. The child In your home in Its childish activities is a prophecy of the embodied forces of life whose future will be as we direct. The child is the father of the man. Vou are serving yourself, serving the world or serving the devil. David, called as a boy from the service of a sheperd to a king ship, began In boyhood his life service ac cording to the will of God. He was a godly boy. Reviewed Life of David. Dr. Butler then reviewed the life of David, "who, while he fell into great sin. for which he and his house suffered throughout life, yet he was a great penitent." The peni tential experiences of King David, his zeal for God's bouse and God's service, furnish hope to every penitent believer In God, the Rev. J. G. Buttler. speaker declared. There is no place for sluggards in the kingdom of God. Service means self-forgetful toil for our fellow-men in the sphere of life in which we move. Continuing he said: "To a life of godly service there is no death. David fell on sleep. No thought is more terrible than the thought of death to the ungodly. Christ abolished death. 'Our friend sleepeth' was the word In the Bethany home. The sleep of the laboring man is sweet. The Chris tian toiler, weary and worn, his life work done, falls on sleep. The book says: "They that sleep in the dust of the earth shall wake?some to everlasting life and some to shame and everlasting contempt.' David never questioned the reality of the after life. 'Laid unto the fathers.' One of the most beautiful incidents is in connection with the death of his child. AVhile the child was sick he fasted and wept and lay on the earth. When the child died and, his ser vants feared to tell him of the death David said I can go to the cliild, but the child cannot return to me. Our fathers?and how great the gathering of them In the father's house?cannot return to us, but we, serving our generation according to the will of God, shall Anally be gathered with them. Heaven Is but the family gathering place of those who serve their generation according to the will of God." On behalf of the congregation Mr. Lucius D. Alden congratulated Dr. Butler upon having reached his eightieth year, to which the pastor responded appropriately. A reception will be given in the church this evening by the young people of the church in honor of the anniversary. Sketch of His Career. Dr. Butler was born In Cumberland, Md. He graduated In 1849 from the Gettysburg Lutheran Seminary, and soon thereafter came to this city as pastor of St. Paul's Lutheran Church. He severed his connec tion with this charge In 1873 and organ ized the Luther Flace Memorial Church, with only fifty members. Ever since that time he has remained with the church he founded. During his pas torate it has grown and expanded until to day It is one of the largest and most in fluential churches in the city and has a building which is regarded as a distinct architectural ornament to the most fash ionable section of the city. When the four hundredth anniversary of the birth of Mar tin I.uther was celefbrated irt this city a statue of the great reformer was placed on the triangle in front of the church build ing, overlooking Thomas Circle.

Refused to Be Rescued, Although Police Were Willing. Lieut. Sutton of the harbor precinct re ceived a request yesterday afternoon that the members of his crew be sent to the mouth of a sewer that empties into the James Creek canal for the purpose of res cuing a yellow dog. There was no sus picion of foul play connected with the case, nor w;is there a suggestion made that any body had jumped overboard. It was mere ly a case of a stubborn or frightened dog that had managed to get into a sewer and refused to swim across the canal and get rescued. Several "men went from the harbor pre cinct to the place where the yelping dog was making so much noise. The canine re fused to be coaxed from the sewer and the opening was so small that no member of the harbor precinct squad felt Justified in volunteering to enter it. Several times while the policemen were near the spot the dog appeared at the mouth of the sewer, but positively refused to leave It. and was still there when finally the police and the crowd of curious persons reluctantly withdrew.

GHASTLY DISCOVERY. Bridge Tend?* Finds Mutilated Be ?n?lnt Of ft Wail. A ghastly discovery was made yesterday morning about 0 o'clock by R. A. Addison, bridge tender on the trestle of the Pennsyl vania railroad that crosses the Eastern branch from a point In rear of the Jail to the Anacostla freight yard. Mr. Addison was examining the trestle to see If every thing was In proper condition when he found the head ol' a colored man wedged between the outer track and guard rail. Beneath the trestie the body of the man was lying In the mud and water. The po* lice of the fifth precinct were notified of the find and the remains were removed to the morgue. The superintendent found that the black suit of clothes worn by the deceased had been made by Ambrose ? Perry, Baltimore merchant tailors, for R L. Rust. The label attached to the coat showed that the suit was made in WOO. In the Baltimore directory the address of R L. Rust Is given as 1532 Park avenue. It is thought by the police that the clothes were either given to the colored man by Mr. Rust or that they were purchased at a second-hand store. The Baltimore officials were communicated with this morning by Captain Boardman and asked to assist in the efforts to identify the body. The cloth ing was in good condition. Several dollars were in the pockets of the clothing. The victim of the accident, it is thought, was walking on the northbound track and was I killed by an outgoing train, the accident oc i currlng late Saturday night or early Sun day morning. The body, when found, was about thirty feet from the part of the trestle where the head was lying. The po lice photographer today made a photograph of the face of the dead man and it will be used for the purpose of assisting in the identification of the body. Seaboard Florida Limited.

The matter was taken up with the secre tary of the Senate, with the result that orders were Issued that the employes must work the full eight hours. This is in line with the public printer's statement that employes of the big prlntery must work the full number of hours for which they are paid.

Feeney of the Bookbind ers' Union is endeavoring to have a pro vision inserted In the new printing bill, which will soon be introduced, providing that employes of the government printing office shall have thirty days' leave with pay. Congress has passed several bills to attain this object, but, regardless of the phraseology, the Treasury Department ex perts have decided in each case that tho law contemplated only twenty-six days' pay. Under the same law employes receiv ing a yearly salary are allowed thirty days, exclusive of Sundays and holidays, but the fact of being per diem employes has hither to been a bar to workers of the prlntery.

'Why Is It that the men who produce all that Is good In this world are forced to live In hovels?" This Is the age of thinking on the part of <he labor man, and this question will soon be an swered." The speaker referred to the condition of affairs in Russia, to the use of machinery in working the mines, which had thrown the men of the country out of work and made slaves of thalr wives and children. In speaking of Newport, Mrs. Jones said it was "the place where the Wall street robbers go down to roost in summer, while a few miles away more than 80.000 per sons are starving" The laboring classes of Germany were then mentioned, after whioh the conditions among the miners In Colo rado and other western states were dis cussed. "Mother" Jones denounced the adminis tration, saying: "I am not in favor of striking: and getting hungry, but I am In favor of using; tho ballot. Prom the long ages of slavery, rising to a nobler man hood. to the time when we will be able to claim our own. and to the time when women will not be forced to barter their honor for bread. The revolution Is on! We must organize. The capitalists are always giving us advice when we don't need It. We'll UBe the ballot and go after the whole crew." In concluding. "Mother" Jones appealed to the local labor leaders for a better or ganisation In their ranks. Elk Grove Butter is tine. Try It.? Advt.
