TEXT-?hat I may win Christ, and be
found tn Him, not having- mine own right
eousness, which is of tho law, but that
which ls through the faith of Christ, the
righteousness which is of Qed by faith.-.
Philippians 3:8, 9. .
One of 'the reformers, Theodor
Beza, once exclaimed : u? Christ, 3
a m, T^h y s In ;
Thb'U art my
rlghtoou anea B."
This sentiment le
not one of curious
Interest, merely,
but is ?of great Im
> portanee to every
apostle of man.
It indicates the
way, the only ?
way, of accept-1
^?w- ? ance ?with God. |
mWA ^1 Men have ninny
notions as to bow ?
they may commend themselves to God, i
with whom all must deal ultimately? I
We ure easily led astray Iry the feel
lng that our wny ls superior to that !
of another man. But, even allowing I
that we may have n better way than j
.some others 'have, we arc still faced |
with the question, "Will my wny stand
God's test?"
Gains Counted Loss.
The aiiostle bud rested content in a :
righteousness of lils own for some
years. He bud a wonderful berilnge
of religious ancestry, and, In addition,
lived In n manner so worthy of bis
ancestry thai be was able to soy that
"touching the righteousness which ls
In the law," he was "blameless." Ac
cording to human standards, nothing
more could be asked than was <exempll- j
tied In this man.
Yet Paul tells us that when the Lord
Jesus Christ was revealed to 3ilm In j
glory, on the way to Damascus, he at |
once changed the headings In his j
ledger. The very religious assets '
which he had accounted "gains" he i
now classified ns "loss." This was .
not because these things were evil In !
themselves, but because bo felt they ?
had come between ids soul and j
Christ, and had robbed him of all the
blessings he might hare hal in tito
Righteousness By Faith.
One of the blessings of which he ,
had been deprived, by dependence Oj* J
his own righteousness, was Unit j
righteousness of God which is by
faith. This righteousness Issues from
God, is the God-kind of righteousness,
the only kind which avails with God.
Truly, any other ls but "loss," but this j
kind ls ? "gain," which n man would j
obtain cheaply if be were to sell all
he lind for Jt. But the wonder Is
that It ls given freely to the empty
hand of fnith !
The text makes clear that this
righteousness, this state of acceptance
With God, belongs to those who put
their trust In Christ, and thus are "In
Martin Luther's Statement.
This truth wiiR brought to the fore
in the Reformation and ls set forth
clearly by Martin Luther. Luther
says to believers In Christ: "Thou art
so entirely. and nearly Joined to
Christ, rhnt He and thou are made,
ns It were, one person ; so that thou
mayst boldly say, I nm now one with
Christ, that ls to say, Christ's right
eouBness, victory and M?e are mine.
And, again, Christ may say, I am that
sinner; that ls, His sins and His death
are mine, because He ls united and
Joined unto me and I unto Him." Paul
puts tho whole matter succinctly when
he says: "Him who knew no sin He
(God) made to he sin on our behalf;
that wo might become the righteous
ness of God in Him." (H Cor. 0:21).
Men Would Earn 8rlvatlon.
It seems very difficult to human na
ture to accept God's righteousness by
simple faith. We are prone to desire
to give something, to do something, to
go somewhere in order to merit salva
tion. It ls a blow to pride to humbly
receive the gift of righteousness by
faith. Much meaning la wrapped up
in Paul's statement: "I count all
things but loss1 for the excellency of
the knowledge of Christ Jesus my
Lord, for whom I have suffered the
loss of all things, and do count then
but dung Hint I mfty win Christ." As
one hn' aid: "His own family prob
ably regarded bim ns a disgrace to
Judaism. His Pharisaic confreres
considered him n deserter from the
cause. The Jews In general treated
him ns n renegade and a turn-coat."
But to gnin Christ and bo found In
Him wns n sufficient compensation,
yen, more than a sufficient compensa
tion, for lt all.
Faith Gives Security.
When Paul speaks of being found
In Christ, be seems to have In mind
both the present and the future. Even
tho light of the great dny of days will
not abash those who hove put their
trust in Christ and are "found in
My hopo is built on nothing les?
Than Jems' blood and righteousness;

But wholly loan on Jesus' nam?.

One Says Lost All Ho Stole While in
Swift Poker Gaines.
Macon, Ga., 'March 24.-Through
twelve witnesses who took tho stand
during the last thirty minutes t
to-day's session of Federal Court,
the government Identified somo of
the goods mentioned in the testi
mony of W. A. Hughes as having
been stolen from tho American Rail
way Express Company during gov
ernment .control. There were other
witnesses who named tho specific
homes among the fifty-three defend
ants on trial on charges of conspir
acy to steal from tho United States
government, in which the property
was recovered.
lt was announced to-night that
tho identification of other property
will continue to-morrow morning.
The cross-examination of Hughes
was finished to-day, and the re-direct
examination lasted only five minutes.
Hughes was ill when he* left the
stand, but Assistant District Attor

story had not been shaken by the

Three times during the cross-ex
amination Judge 'Beverly D. Evans
stopped Judge E. W. Maynard, of
this city, aiid insisted that he follow
the instructions of the court as to
tho cross-examination. The lawyers
for the defense had agreed to leave
the general cross-examination to
former Assistant District Attorney
Wallace Miller.
Hughes denied that he bad given,
an art square to M. A. Sheppard as
a wedding present. "I said, 'Shop,
there's an art square without any
mark on it.' He said, 'Good; I'll
take it,' " the witness declared.
Cross-examined regarding a whis
key transaction with tho "Smith
crew," the witness said that he got
twenty-four half pints from one
shipment, and did not recall how
ninny Conductor Smith or Baggage
Master Smith received. He said that
Albert Smith, tho porter, was given
some, and that he walked through

"Where's the porter?" asked Mr.
"He's dead," replied tho witness.
"You were not interested with H.

"Yes, slr," replied tho witness.
"Wo were all interested together."
Floyd Morris, he said, once per

Asked If ho accumulated any
money from thefts, the witness said
Hint ho had not; that ho lost lt all

said, taught him to play.
"Wo all lied," Hughes said, "when
wo were stealing." But ho insisted
that he wouldn't He on any of tho

(Philadelphia North American. Re
printed by Request.)
The American Sunday school be
g-n in Philadelphia. Some witty phi
losopher has said that the chief won
der In the world is Why anything
ever begins at all. Next to that ls
the mystery of ita beginning in ono
place rather than another.
The City of Beginnings! This old
town with the queer name, quarried i
out of the ancient Greek by a quaint 1
old-world-roving Quaker, the city
which was to call together those
who love and help each other, man
aged to be in on nearly all the great
beginnings of American history.
Penn brought his "frame" of gov
ernment here for its first planting.
The Declaration and Constitution
were written und proclaimed here.
The flag was made here. Thones
Kunder organized here the first
spoken challenge against negro slav
ery. If I mistake not, insurance and
banking and transcontinental rail
road .promotions bad their begin
nings in Philadelphia.
And Franklin made his real be
ginning here-himself a sort of uni
versal starter. The Republican party
j bold Its fi rs t national convention in
Philadelphia. The American Anti
slavery Society started* hore. Coal
stoves, electricity-Philadelphia has
contributed a chapter of beginnings'
lo all these things. The list might
! be almost indefinitely extended,
j Certainly Philadelphia has been
. the chief power bouse of the Amori
. can Sunday school. Its principal
i publications have had their home
?nore. Its leading organizations have
been officered and directed from tho
headquarters here. And from tho
first the leading laymen of Philadel
! phia have likewise had a leading
hand in the activities of this, grow
ing spiritual industry.
Queer Beginnings.
And here is another queer thing
about beginnings. They never begin
in the way that it might have been
expected that they would begin, lt
would never occur to us to think of
Franklin as the founder of a Sunday
school. We would moro naturally
think of saintly .lohn Woolmnn or a
j dory .Methodist. Bishop Asbury.
And, of course, tho Sunday school
would spring from the bosom of the
church, warmed to life by a puro I
evangelical zeal. It should have
started with the flaming eloquence
of a Wesley or Whitefield, lt should
hove crossed the Atlantic In the wake
of the Puritan and Pilgrim and land
ed on the bleak New England shore.
As a matter of fact, with the start
ling oddity and unexpectedness that
marks all the great human begin
nings, tho Sunday school, which
picked an obscure newspaper editor
for Its old-world announcer, also
worked out an equally Informal
American beginning.
Franklin did not start the Sunday
school In Philadelphia. But there
was another Ben In the City of Bro
therly Love in 1790, who was almost
as much of a busybody as the editor
of "the Pennsylvania Gazette and
universal instructor in all the arts
and sciences" had been. This other
Ben was Dr. Benjamin Rush.
ike Franklin, who was always
"writing pieces" to the paper (his
own), now suggesting plans for
sweeping the sidewalks and again
for setting up "Juntas," starting col
logos and libraries and organizing
new governments and constitutions
-like Franklin, Ben Rush was al
ways writing pieces. "Letters to
Rich Men," letters on prison reform,
letters against slavery. With James
Pemberton ho organized tho first
anti-slavery society and was its sec
retary for many yours.
And, of course, Dr. Ben was a

laration. Ho sat in the first Penn
sylvania State Convention and helped
frame its constitution. He was a
moving patriot-tho kind of a pa
triot that is on the move himself and
keeps others moving.
A Mixed Trio.
Now Dr. Ben had been a Presby
terian and belonged to the old Third
church. But things there were too
stationary for him. So he pulled out
to follow Dr. Priestly, lately come
out, of England* with some new
brands of religious doctrine. And
then he went among the Universal
Ists and there anchored.
And ii was Qr. Benjun'u Hush
who |rd (iff in starting the first Amer*
lCan'"{Sunday school, ft ls plain to be
seen thal anything that looked like
education and the useful employment
of time and dhergy appealed to Dr.
Ben. ,
But there are other elements of
oddity to \c noted-ln our American
Sunday.school beginnings. Two oth
er men are credited in Sunday school
history with collaborating with Dr.
Rush, the Universalist. Thoy were
Bishop White, Episcopalian, and
Mathey Carey, Roman Catholic.
* The venerable Edwin Wilbur Rice,
whose crowning life work is his vol
ume on "The Sunday School Move

than half a century of research in
narrating the facts I have Just men

course, the student will at once re
call that religion In an earlier timo

Thus the materials of Sunday

fall into a focus which brings all the

Holiglon, tho church and the Sunday
school alike have suffered from an
unnatural isolation. How has lt
come about that tho man of thc
world accepts and appraises at Its
fair worth tho public school and then
affects to turn up its nose nt the
Sunday school?
