TWO LARGE CONGREGATIONS Mado Perfect in Weakness Is Possible, lie Said, If You Accept the Instru mentality of God and Let II ins Uo Manifest In tliu Flesh. In the Croon Itldjje Presbyterian church yesterday Rev. 1. M. Stearns, of Germantown, formerly rector of Grace Reformed Episcopal church of this city, preached morning and even ing. His morning topic was "The True Nuzarlte, or Separation unto God." Ills evening topic was "Worn Jacob, or Strength Made Perfect In Weakness." Kueii service was largely attended, but the evening was especially featured by a large audience composed of parish oners und old, central city friends of Mr. Stearns, which taxed the sealing capacity of the big auditorium. Mr. Stcarn.V veiling discnurse was an argument ' ,ner than a sermon, us the latter Is ,ually Interpreted. That he had lost .ine of his old-day, techni cal biblical knowledge was shown dur ing the dlHcour.se by his ready and t're ilUent references to The Rook. Soon after his introductory remarks he did not hesitate to tell his hearers that he regretted to observe' that they made ho few notes of the quotations he made from the Scriptures. He re marked that pencil and paper bore an Important part in digesting and getting the benefit of religious dissertation. He said in substance: Me Must tic in Sympathy. "It Is not upon any earthly Instru mentality that we can llnd salvation. Instrumentality und salvation uro United together and if we refuse the one we lose the other. We must be in sympathy with the Lord and his pur pose and be able to Buy 'amen' ua l'avld did. "Many persons take too much respon sibility upon themselves In working out the purposes of the Lord. With them it is 'our' this und 'our' that. Let us remember that 'our' has nothing to do with it. It is His work, und unless we remember this point and work His pur pose with that fact In our minds we shall Indeed have a hard time of It. "He said 'ye shall not fall nor be dis couraged. ' We've got to fall into line and say. 'Lord. 1 believe Thou wilt till the earth with Thy glory,' and then the work will be easier. "Who is the Lord? He Is 'God mani fest In the flesh.' yet we hear many a man say, 'Yes. Jesus was a good man, but He is not God.' Well, If tbat is so, then Jesus Is bad because he would have proved himHelf a liar in repeated ly saying He was God. Such talk Is nonsense, for it follows that a man can not believe in Jesus us a man or any thing else, unless he believes his utter ances that He Is God. Our salvation is based upon It because God Is mani fest in the fiesh. Not Too Insignificant. "We mtiot not think we are too In significant for this instrumentality to be used by Him. lie used a woman, literally, in Jonah's time. Surely He can use us. This use, however, is based upon the condition that we give Him the glory and fear not. 'Fear not.' What comfort there Is In the words, and how often they are repeated from Genesis to Revelations. 'Fear not, thou worm of Jacob.' He said. "It is merely a question of planing your hand In His and going forward to do His work. Let God be manifest in the flesh of you, and through this Instru mentality you may do His work and not be conscious of insignificance.". WORLD'S GREAT EVIL. Rev. Dr. Hushes' Vigorous Sermon on the Harm Hone hy Strong Prink. The audltorum of the Jackson Street Baptist church was completely Allied last evening, when Bev. li. C. Hughes, the oastor, preached on eloquent and forcible sermon on "Temperance." tr. Hughes chose as his text. Exodus, sxll, 6, saying, "If fire break out and catch In thorns so thait the stacks of corn, or the standing corn or the field be con sumed therewith, he that kindled the fire shall surely make restitution." Dur ing his remarks the pastor snlil: "The fire of Intemperance Is kindled by so many hands that It is hard to lo cate It. Our duty tonight will be to show how It destroys homes and lives. I will call your attention to a few facts about the destructive power of Intem perance anil the evils, through drunk eness, that society, the nation and the world at large suffers. Why Is it that such an evil should be licensed? Why Is it that It should be allowed? A vic tim of delirium tremens Is h 'type of hell on earth. It Is by the quantity of alco hol taken that the system Is poisoned, and why should such a poison us this b freely sold and a government or city Rllowed to grant license for its sale? Everybody knows It Is poisonous, and I say, as a lover of my country and Its people, that it Is an outrage upon so ciety for men to sell such poisonous beverages. "Men la not ft mere nnlrnnl organiza tion or a brute. This body of ours Is but a convenient machine which God hns given us. f tut there Is still some thing which remains. Man may l.e n consumptive and yot he a good Chris tian. Even that dread disease leaves the mind of mnn untouched, nnd he may enjoy communion with his God. Alcohol effects the mind and makes It defective. It Is the devil's potion. It ruins mind, soul and spirit, und cuts off all communication between Its vic tim und heaven, for a drunkard has no use for anything but that which Is beastly. Our lawyers muke a plea for their client to have a license, the recom pense being their fee. A man or wo man has a right, as things ure now, to go into a saloon und drink until they are drunk, and no policeman hus a right to Invade the sanctity of that hell. We know that not only alcohol poisons the physicul syrtem, but also the mind. There Is nothing that the drunkard can boast of that Is good, for lie curses everything that he touches. Just think of the misery and sorrow that a drunk ard can produce In his home. Take, for Instance, the West Hide of tho city, where earnings are smull, yet men who do not drink, nearly all own their own homes. That Which poisons the Indi vidual or affects the family, also pois ons society and degrades It. There Is not a member of society whose Influ ences are bad but Injures those with whom he comes In contact. The snme with the good side. Every good word that Is spoken iroes vibrating and readies to heaven, and the bud goes down to hell, And so this power that we call alcohol, und which we take Into the system, blunts and curses every thing thot It touches. It Is caused by unholy appetite, und we must remedy It. The appetite was formed by oppor tunity, and we should take the oppor tunity away." Dr .Hughes then read a paper which will be sent to Harrlsburg requesting the legislature to haw eitlen, wards or townships vote on the saloon ques tion, and have majorities rule. MISSION AT ni'N.HOKE. Ofcn Yesterday .Morning in St. Mary's Catholic Church. Undoer the patronage of three mis sionary fathers a mission which will continue for two weeks, opened at the late mass yesterday In St. Mary's Catholic church, Dunmore. The three clergymen ure Revs. C. A. Splinter, W. 1. Rlokarby, and W. A. Dunn, of the Dominican Order, and they come from tho Dominican house on Lexington ave nue, New York city. All three ure young men, but possess eloquunt ora torical jiowers. Father Splinter Is In charge of the mission and at the 10.30 mass yesterday he announced that the current week will be devoted exclusively to the wo men of the pal ish. He preached a ser mon on gruee and exhorted the people to prepare themselves for the grace of God und profit during the holy season of the mission. Next week will be for the men, and there will be u special mission also for the children. On Sun days masses will be at 5 und 8 a. m. Each morning short instructions will be given alter the ii o'clock mass, and a sermon utter the 8 o'clock muss. Rosary and a sermon will be given each evening ut 7.110, except Saturday even ing. During the mission every facility will be afforded for the instruction or In formation of non-Catholics, who may be desirous of knowing the teachings of the Catholic church. Confessions will commence on Tuesdays of each week at 3.30 p. m. The morning hours for confession are between li and 7; and from to 1-' m. In the afternoon from o.otl to li, and from 7.IS0 to 10 o'clock. Futln r Klcarby delivered a short In struction i:l'ter the Rosary last night, and Father Splinter preached the ser mon on the subject of penance. Ills sentences rang with eloquent fervor and deeply Impressed his congregation. He pictured to his hearers the differ ence between the true emotion of sin cere repentenco nnd the transient false feeling of contrition thut finds its place In the sinner's breast. When a soul Is laved In tho confessional, the heart must be truly sorry for the sins for given. The true repentant Is dead to sin and will not lapse back Into the same old paths of iniquity. The speaker referred to persons who act as if they felt truly repentant und in a short time again they fall back Into the same habits. Such persons, he said, cannot lie sincerely repentant, be cause it Is Impossible to change from love to hatred In a short space of time without any cause, and surely there Is no cause to offend God. The transition from grace to the state of sin means the same us changing tin- affections from love to hatred. Like the Jews of old we crucify God over again. RELIGIOUS TOPICS. Itev. It. S.

Itev. Father Feeley delivered the ser mon at St. Peter's cathedral at tho 1U.:!0 muss yesterday morning. During the course of his ivmurks he look occasion to deplore the conduct of the religious fan atics, who, he said, hail banded together In alleged patriotic societies for the pur pose of opposing und Injuring the Cath olic church. These men. he said, were j usually misguided persons who have little or no idea of anything pertaining to the Cutholle church. They will not take the trouble to make Inquiries or Investiga tions themselves, but give willing ear to the falsehoods and calumnies ihat their leaders anil the papers published In the Interests of these or ganizutloiis spread broadcast.
