"The newspaper article mentioned states that Dr. Yarrow decorated his church yesterday with various bot tles and other vessels containing liquor which had been obtained by some of his aids or investigators. I suppose the only excuse for this cheap bid for sensationalism ahd de secration of a house of worship is that some of his congregation might have questioned the statement from the pulpit that he had such quanti ties of liquor in an adjoining place or building.
