Some have wearied of It and dropped away, but L,oB be praised for the many that have been faithful. Some have removed to other fields to serve there, and God be thanked for the work they are doing. Some have ended their pilgrimage and fallen asleep in C hrlst, and Cod be praised for their testimony here, and their rest now in the glory of the throne " . . Then, paraphrasing his text, the preacher told of the rise of the church, as foretold by the Prophet Mtoah, when It should be established and exalted: when %the people should flow Into it and the reign of peace Should come, when every man should dwell under his own vine and ti# tree, with none to make him afraid; when the stumbling and the exiled and the burdened should be safely cared for?and he argued" that the condition foretold was possible at the pres ent time for both individual and church.

THREE INEFFECTUAL SHOTS Fired at Mrs. Herbert Before Others Could Interfere. HUSBAND TAKEN TO HOSPITAL Believed He Was Dying and Asked for Priest?Wound Inflicted Not Serious. Alleging that his wife had refused to live with him, Wellington B. Herbert, twenty eight years old. of :W6 H street northeast, fired three ^hots from a .32 caliber re volver at her last night and then tiirned the revolver upon himself in an attempt to end his own life. None of the shots In tended for Mrs. Herbert took effect, and the bullet which her husband fired at him self penetrated his breast. He Is In the Providence Hospital. The shooting occurred in a basement alt ting room at the home of Mrs. Herbert's sister. Mrs. Annie Not hey. 1121 3d street southeast. Herbert walked into a room filled with people, opened Are on his wife and then in their presence, as stated, turned the gun on himself. He is under guard at the Providence Hospital and the station house books record a charge of assault with a dangerous weapon against him. He will be taken to the Police Court and required to answer to the charge aa soon as he is released from the hospital. There has been trouble between Herbert and Irs wife for some time, but affairs ramp to a crisis several weeks ago. when Herbert was arrest-id on a charge of mak ing ttireats of personal violence against her. I'pon being released following that arrest the trouble in the home continued, according to the poli.-e, and Mrs. Herbert had her husband again arrested, this time on a charge of non-support. At that time. It is declared, she separated from her hus band and sought refuge in the home of her sister, Mrs. Nothey. She has resided there since, with her two children, Violet and Thelma. Calls to See His Wife. Shortly after 9 o'clock Herbert went to the Nothey home at 1121 3d street south east and asked to he allowed to see his wife. He was Invited Inside. He said very little, but asked that his wife step to the door to talk with him. She would not go and Herbert went outside and sat down on the porch. He seemed nervous and excited, the witnesses say, but ihey feared no harm from him. Soon the party went down into the base ment room and seated themselves, when Herbert again made his appearance at the door. He asked his wife to come back and live with him. but she replied that she was afraid to. Herbert talked a great deal, ad dressing his wife most of the time, but re-_ spending to other members of the fanjily as they spoke in trying to argue with him upon the proposition he had made to Mrs. Herbert. ? When Herbert saw that his wife was Arm in her intention to stay away from him, he reached into his hack pocket and drew a revolver. Before the members of the party in the house realized what he intended to do he took deliberate aim at his wife, fir ing thr??e shots In quick succession. All the bullets passed near Mrs. Herbert's head, but. as stated, all were wide of the "mark. One of the bullets whizzed past Mrs. Annie Nothey and the powder burned the skin of her arm. The Injury Is not serious, bow ever. Turns Revolver on Himself. By the time the third shot was fired Clar ence Goldsmith, who was near Herbert, rushed to him. grasped his arm and pre vented him from firing again at his wife. By a quick move, however. Herbert wrench ed his arm away from Goldsmith's grasp long enough to press the barrel against his chest and pull the trigger. The ball entered ? the flesh nearly over the heart, but struck a rib and glanced off. Herbert fell to the floor and Goldsmith grabbed the revolver. The police of the fifth precinct were soon notified of the trouble and Lieut. Anderson, with the reserves of the fifth precinct, hur ried #> the house in the patrol wagon. Her- I bert was -found- In a pool of blood on the floor, with a wound over his heart. It wa# feared by the police that the bullet had I pierced his heart, and he was conveyed at once to the Providence Hospital. Upon ex amination the wound was found to be not serious. All the persons in the house at the tfme of the shooting were unnerved by the in cident, and Mrs. Herbert suffered greatly from shock. When first taken to the hospital Herbert believed he was fatally hurt. "I'm going to die; I'm going to die. Get me a priest." he kept repeating. The priest was taken to him. but he was told that the wound was a superficial one. INFANT UNDER PEW. Priest Stops Service and Baptizes It. Taken to Bellevue. NEW YORK, September 9.?During the services in the Church of the Most Precious Blood, at 115 Baxter street, last evening the feeble cries of an infant were heard by a worshiper, and an investigation reve?led a little waif less than six hours old under one of the pews. The Rev. Father S. Francesco Palam bizio. who "was presiding, was notified, and he at once stopped the services and ordered the child to be brought to him at the altar. Lustily crying, the infant was taken to him, and then he baptized it Mario Llneola and sent for a policeman. Word was telephoned to the Elizabeth street station, but the house duty man be ing absent, Lieut. Harry Murray, realizing the importance of the call, left the station in charge of Doorman Wlttlngton and went around to the church and took the child b&i k with him, where it was cared for by Matron Le Bourbeau, and later wras sent to Bellevue Hospital. The infant was wrapped from head to foot Willi tine lint, a handkerchief was tied about Its throat, and a lump of sugar which had been tied inside of a corner of the handkerchief had evidently slipped out of the chilli's mouth, causing It to cry. There was much commotion among the wuman worshipers, two of whom wanted to adopt the Infant then and there. LOSES OEMS ON SHIPBOARD. Mrs. Barkley Offers $150 Reward Without Result. NEW YORK.

Ha,was removed to the hospital, where it Is said he has no chance of re covery. The -assault is known to have been com mitted after midnight, a customer having seen Fo-kin alive at that hour. Investiga tion showed that the rooms of the laundry had been thoroughly ransacked, though It was not apparent that anything had been stolen. The money drawer was left un touched. Fo-kin was a recent arrival here, coming from Woonsocket, where he had worked for two years. His fellow-countrymen here sny that he belonged to no order other than the Chinese Masons, and the attack, they say, could not be a result of the rivalry between the Hi'p Sing and On Leong Tongs, which recently became deadly warfare in Boston's China town Repelled Hob of Troopers.
