PULPIT VOICES Birth of Christ a Type of Allegory GIFTS AND GOOD INTENTIONS CHRISTMAS GIVING GRACED WITH GOOD WILL Addresses Appropriate to the Day and the Season —Peace on Earth, Good Will Toward Mea At the Unity church yesterday morn ing Rev. C. W. Wendte said: "Rational Christians no longer ac cept the birth stories of Jesus as literal fact and history. A careful study of the Bible itself shows that they are not such and were never intended to be taken as actual happenings in bis life, much less as dogma. We believe these stories to be of a later origin, dating from about a hundred years after Christ's death, when the tendency to exalt and glorify him as a divine and supernatural person was already in full headway. But while not the record of actual occurrences they have their significance and beauty and permanent value. It would be a great misfortune for Christendom to lose In terest In them altogether. A reverent rationalism will see in them rather the beautiful and touching creations of the Inspired Imagination and loving heart of the early Christians, as expressing their Joy and gratitude at the advent of Jesus in the language of poetry and symbol. "In the guise of type and allegory these birth stories convey profound spiritual truths.. Under the night heavens of Judea the simple shepherds tend their frocks. This symbolizes the dark pall of ignorance and unbelief which rested up on the world in that day, and expresses the profoundly significant truth that the gospel of deliverance was first revealed, not to the high placed, wise and mighty of earth, but to simple and lowly hearts, to men of peaceful vocation and kindly ■pirit. "When we read that the heavens were opened and angelic voices made the glad announcement of a Saviour's birth, we understand the deeper meaning of the ■acred writer to be that heaven rejoiced with earth over the advent of a redeem er and leader of mankind. The rude surroundings of the nativity, the manger bed, set forth the familiarity of the Christ from his very birth with poverty and privation. The meek-eyed cattle are expressive of the sympathy of the animal creation. The tender mother, bending over the child, is henceforth and forever a type of all motherly affection and care. "The Magi from the east, led by the mystic star of the heathen astrology how evident by this Is an allegorical representation of the homage the pagan religions were to pay to the new born and Christian faith. The series of pic tures ends with the graphic representa tion of aged Simeon In tho temple, the type of Israel's prophetic hope, recog nizing In the Infant Jesus the long-ex pected Messiah of his people, and sing ing his swan song of gratitude and Joy. How plainly this also is a symbolic ex pression of the providential succession of the Christ and Christianity to the Jewish church and religion! All this I? not history, is not doctrine, was never intended to be such. It is a sacred alle gory, a poem to adorn and glorify the birth of Jesus and the advent of the Christian religion in the world. "As such It is singularly and endur ingly beautiful. It has been the inspir ation of art and song. Every child's heart loves It. It appeals to the child heart in us. We appreciate these tender and beautiful stories the more when we surrender them as actual fact and his tory and accept them as symbol and poetry." WHOM DID JESUS WORSHIP The Lord's Prayer an Appeal to His Higher Self Last night Will C. Bailey of San Fran cisco delivered the last of his series of lectures before the Throsophical soci ety. The subject was. "Whom Did Jesus Worship?" "Worship," ha said, "is, with the mass of humanity, an attltuda of the mind; but with those who have progressed further along the path of evolution It Is an attitude of the soul. So with Jesus. H» had progressed so far along that the Divine was manifested to such an extent that his devotees see In Htm the personification of God. "The most familiar forms of worship are praise and prayer. To the orientalist these become meditation and concentra tion upon the Spiritual. Jesus showed nil these phases In His life. Before all of the great events of His career He is said to have retired to the mountains or other secret places to pray, thus putting Himself close In touch with nature. In John xvil, He emphasized His unity with the Father and of His disciples with Him, and consequently with the Father. "The Lord s prayer," said Mr. Bailey, "when interpreted in the light of Hip other teachings, is an appeal to the Father in heaven—that heav.-n which is within—and, therefore, an appeal to the higher self which is in us all. and through which He attained Christhood, and by which we may attain eternal freedom." GOD'S GREAT GIFT He Gave TJs, Not Only the Best, But All He Had David Walk, pastor of the Church of Christ, on Eight street, yesterday morning took for his text 1 John lv:8-10, p~ A Fine Mozart Upright Piano piaflo Mahogany case, beautiful finish, superior tone* Direct from the factory* An instrument that retails At a Bar am if At a Bargain if re g U larly at $400, If sold this week the purchaser will receive a bargain* For particulars apply to a arg sold this week * * <* hS* RODMAN, The Herald Office* sold this week and announced for his subject "God's Great Gift. He said: "The gift of Christ is a demonstration of the love of God. and that without reference to any merit In the objects of his love, or claim upon his mercy. "But notwithstanding this perennial outflow of the divine love, and in spite of It, the world Is today full of sighs, sorrows and tears. But still God Is love. Why ia it so? And I reply with pro found reverence, because God can not help It. He has done the best for the race he can, but he can not compel men to put themselves In the way of blessing. He has gone farther to make peace and to bring Joy to his recreant children than all the fathers on earth could do. "The love of God is manifested In the fact that it Is not only spontaneous, In dependent and eternal, but that It gives the best. God gave the best he had to give. Of nil tho treasures at his com mand, there was nothing to compare with what he gave. "David could not offer to God that which cost him nothing. Is It not true that God's great gift to us cost him something? Do we ever ponder this question? Indeed, do we ever give It a thought? God has a father's heart. He said to Abraham: 'Thou hast not with held thy son, thine only son.' And Paul says that 'God spared not his own son.' Let it be noted that God's "withheld," relative to Abraham, is Paul's 'spared not,' relative to God. It Is wonderful. Yes, God gave the best and all that he had." CHRISTMAS GIVING Love and Good Will Exemplified) by the Season's Compliments Rev. L. M. Hartley, In speaking at Simpson Tabernacle yesterday morning, took for his text Gal. iv:4-5. In the course of his sermon he said: "Friend liness Is specially Important at this sea son of the year, when each and everyone is making gifts. When the propitious time had come, God gave us his only begotten Son, that he might redeem the world by the sacrifice of his precious blood from the depths of misery and sin into which It had gradually been drawn as In a whirlpool. "When tho Christ came, all tho na tions of the world had been gathered to gether Into one, and that one at peace. 'Rome, from her throne of beauty, ruled the world.' But this was soon to crumble before the power of the Greek, and Grecian language, which the Almighty was using as the instrument for the spread of the gospel. The coming of the Redeemed had no doubt been ex pected for some time, the natives show ing a state of unquiet and unrest, each one feeling In soma mysterious manner that 'the fullness of the time hafl come." "We should all look more upon the love and good will that goes with out present than of the actual presents themselves. In Christmas time, God gave us his Son under the law and laid upon him the In iquity of us all. Let our presents be graced with our love and good will, for in this is the essential point of the cus tom of Christmas presents." GIFTS AND GOOD INTENTIONS The Act of Giving Blest When Coupled With Love Rev. A. A. Rice of the Universalist church took for his text Acts xx: 35, the well-known, old maxim that "It Is more blessed to give than to receive.". In brief, he said: "The implied truth of these words is of far more importance than that which is directly stated. Their commonly accepted exterior statement— the comparison of blessing derived from the acts of giving and of receiving—is but a small and Insignificant part of their whole meaning. As regards blessing, if the acceptance of a gift is but secondary to Its presentation, then either Is but secondary to the whole implied truth, that both giving and receiving are necessary adjuncts of blessing, or that blessing Is made possible only because of something given and received. "No real life exists or ever can exist except as the result of personal ener gies expended for persons. This Is the paramount significance of our Savior's life and of all our Christmas giving. The prudential motives which are sure to ap pear In us when wo observe only the superficial fragment of the truth in the text disappears when its truth Is fully comprehended. Salvation Is thus known to be for all, and for salt only because for all. So long as there remains any strength to give or any necessity for re ceiving, the stream of good Intent, min gled with sympathy and pity, will flow OD to the supreme end of purity and par fectlon." FIRST CHRISTIAN God Manifested His Personal Traits to Us Through Christ At the First Christian church yester day morning Rev. A. C. Smlther preached a Christmas sermon upon the subject, "Immanuel." Said the speak er: "The story of the advent of Christ Into the world Is the most wonderful of all the ages, and grows more entranc- Ingly beautiful with the widening of the centuries. In the different classes of men gathered around the manger of the Christ-child to do him homage are re vealed the wide-reaching influences of the story of his birth. Wealth and pov erty, pomp and simplicity alike, met in one common purpose, to worship and adore the divine infant. What explana tion can be given for the marvelous events connected with the birth of the Savior? There Is much significance in the meaning of the word, 'Immanuel, — 'God with us.' "In order to communicate to mankind, God Used means intelligible and compre hensible to human thought: thus through the Incarnation of his son, he manifested his personal traits. Through Christ Is borne God's message to man. That Christ should be sent into the world to sacrifice his life for the human race Is the highest evidence of the worth and value of human character. God no long er appears as a supreme being that mor tals should fear, but a loving Father of Infinite mercy and tenderness. How thankful should we be for the influence LOS ANGELES HERALD, MONDAY MORNING, DECEMBER 27, 1897 of Christianity, that dignifies human life and inspires faith in a future existence, free from turmoil and struggle!" REVEALS OUR THOUGHTS Christ a Stumbling-Block to Some, a Savior to Others "Jesus,the Revealer of Our Thoughts," was the subject of the Rev. Ball at the English Lutheran church yesterday morning. He said in effect: "Why have we all gathered together In the house of God on this great day, for which the past four weeks have been one big prepara tion Do you answer that It is the anni versary of a Savior's birthday? Truo; and the reason thereof Is expressed In my text, that thoughts out of many hearts might be revealed. Then we see that to some Jesus becomes a stumbling block, as It were; to others a rock of sal vation, whereby each may lift himself still higher towards a spiritual perfec tion. See the self-righteous man of rill ages, and what he says! 'I am good; I need no savior. Judgment! What Is that to me? I care naught for a vision ary tribunal many years ahead. Give me education, culture, a chance to lift myself up; but God and a Savior! Non sense!' "Can you not remember how your first steps toward Him were the result of the fall of self-praise and self-righteous ness ? To how many has He given a bet ter, purer, sweeter life, revealing thoughts the possession of which they had never before dreamed. Wondrous Bethlehem Babe! What has he brought you?" T. W. C. A. Praise Service A praise service was held at the Toung Women's Christian association yesterday afternoon. Special music was furnished by the Sunday school or chestra of the First Congregational church. Remarks appropriate to the Christmas season were made by the president of the association, Mrs. Frank A. Dewey. She spoke very earnestly on the meaning of the gift of the Savior. Let us carry this greatest gift, the Christians' Savior, to those who do not know him. Tho message of peace on earth and good will to men announced at his birth should lead us to beat peace with all men. If God so loved us we ought also to love one another. Theosophy At Blavatsky hall, 525 West Fifth street, Mrs. J. A. Brink lectured on "Keynotes." The speaker said in part: "The world Is beginning to recognize the fact that thought is a powerful fac tor in the hearts of men, a strong force for good or ill!. That thoughts are really things pulsating, vibrating with a life of their own. Men begin to understand, to a greater or less degree, that all manifestation whatsoever is the result of thought and ideation. As thought lies behind act, we can see how the con dition of the world at the present time has been shaped by ourselves. Many people have scarcely a thought above the gratification of the moment. Their entire energy is spent in catering to their bodily desires. There are many others who have compelled their de sires to submit to the control and guid ance of the diviner part of their nature. TODAY'S COUNCIL MEETING Several Important Matters and Much Routine to Be Considered In addition to an unusual amount of routine business which has been In the bands of committees for some time, the city council today will consider several matters which cannot be considered as routine. One of them is the approval of the contract and bonds for the delivery to the city of five lots of fire hose of 1000 feet each from as many companies In this city. These bonds have been filed in the clerk's office during the past week, and today they will be referred to the finance committee for examination. If this reference is made at the morning session, the committee may report In the afternoon, so that the hose will be de livered as soon as possible. In the matter of the application of the receiver of the Temple street cable rail way for permission to surrender a por tion of the franchise of that company, It Is expected that the petition will be withdrawn. This will settle the matter for the present. The election of a tem porary successor to ex-Director J. F. Adams of the board of education may be mentioned, but It Is not considered prob able that an election will take place. Whether or not the city is to contribute $500, or any other amount, to the cele bration of the fiftieth anniversary of the discovery of gold in California next month, will be decided today. The finance committee will meet early this morning for the purpose of making its recommendations on this matter to the council. Some action will probably be taken with reference to the proposed asphaltum i tests. The refusal of the government ex perts to make the examination desired has not been taken as final, and there Is still a probability of sufHctejit Influ ence being brought to bear in washing ton to secure the tests. Settled Their Difficulties With Fists Ed Lenhoff and John Jones had a dif ference at the corner of First and Los Angeles streets yesterday afternoon, and started to settle in a manner that might be termed brutal by the humane society. Jones had just bartered a black eye for a bloody nose drawn at sight when Sergeant Morton put in an appear ance and arrested the belligerents. At the police station they were charged with disturbing the peace. East Side News Mr. and Mrs. Adams of Pasadena ave nue entertained a large number of rela tives at an old-fashioned New England Christmas dinner Saturday. The evening sermon by Rev. L. O. Fer- I guson at the Christian church was illus trated by picture charts. S A carriage was relieved of one of Its ! wheels on Pasadena avenue yesterday ] afternoon by coming in contact with a i Pasadena car. The occupants escaped j without injury. I Rev. J. B. Green took for the text of his Christmas sermon yesterday morning the following words: "For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Boo." John 111-11 D. C. McOarvln will leave with others this morning for his mines in the Eagle mountains, on the Colorado desert. Mr. McOarvln expects to be absent for sev eral months. Mr. Moreland and family of Pomona have moved Into the house formerly owned by Mr. Floyd, on the corner of Sichel and Avenue 31. IN SOCIETY The marriage of Miss Delphlne Ger trude Todd, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Theodore Todd, to Prank H. Colby, Christmas night, was an exceedingly pretty affair. Owing to the near de parture of the bride's parents for their future home in Ventura, the ceremony took place at the residence of Mr. and Mrs. Prank Gillespie, 330 Buena Vista street. Rev.

She wore a handsome cluster diamond ring, a gift of the groom. Miss Myra Todd, sister of the bride, assisted as bridesmaid and wore white Swiss over lavender trimmed with Valenciennes lace and lavender ribbons. Aden Green acted as best man. The bride's beautiful voice and at tractive personality have made her hosts of admiring friends here and else where, where she is well known in mu sical circles. The groom Is a successful young Los Angeles musician and Is or ganist at Simpson tabernacle. The guests Included only the relatives and most intimate friends of the bride and groom.

STATISTICS AS TO DUELING Code Is Most Popular in Germany, With France Next More duels are fought in Germany lhan in any other country. Most of them are student duels, which culminate in nothing more serious than slashed cheeks or torn scalps, which look ex tremely ugly when healed and often cause much trouble to the sufferer while healing. Of all German university towns Jena and Gottlngen are most devoted to the code. In Gottlngen the number of duels averages one a day, year in and year out. Within the space of four-and twenty consecutive hours, several years ago, twelve duels were fought in Gottin gen. In Jena the record for one day in recent times is twenty-one. Fully 4000 student duels are fought every year in the German empire. In addition to these, there are the more serious duels between officers and civilians. Among Germans of mature years the annual number of duels is about 100. Next to Germany, France is most giv en to the dueling habit. She has every years hundreds of meetings "to satisfy honor"—that is, merely to give two men the opportunity to wine out insults by crossing swords or firing pistols in such a way as to preclude the slightest chance of Injury. In the duel statistics these meetings are not reckoned, as they are far less perilous than even German stu dent duels. Of the serious duels France can boast fully 1000 per annum. The majority of these are among army offi cers. More than half of them result In wounds, and nearly 20 per cent in serious wounds. Italy has had 3759 duels in the last ten years. Some 2490 of these meetings were fought with swords, 179 with pis tols, 90 with rapiers and one with re volvers. In 574 cases the insult origin ated 1n newspaper articles or in public letters, and scores were purely literary quarrels. More than 700 principals were Insulted by word of mouth. Political dis cussions led to 559, and religious discus sions to 89 meetings. Quarrels at the gaming table were responsible for 189. A summary shows that, as regards numbers, the sequence of dueling coun tries is: Germany, France, Italy, Aus tria and Russia.—London Mall. READS RUSSELL SAGE'S BUMPS Phrenologist Telia Him He Has a Total Lack of Generosity There Is no man In New York, if, in deed, In the entire country, with a per sonality like that of Russell Sago. His enormous wealth, his frugal habits, his many eccentricities, have brought him before the public, often In a manner to give rise to comment not at all flattering to the subject. Some have, however, gone so far as to claim that Mr. Sage is a very much misunderstood man. Mr. Sage is one of those, and to con vince himself that public estimate of his character is incorrect, he recently placed himself, or at least his head, in the hands of a well-known phrenologist. The latter deftly fingered the Sage bumps and reported that the great finan cier had a small head, but a brain capa ble of great condensation. Foresight was strongly developed, and intuition was indicated in a marked degree. Mr. Sage was pleased to learn that he had a remarkable memory, a strong apprecia tion of humor, but an entire lack of gen erosity. He has a power of adaptability and Is a master of prudence, and, accord ing to the phrenologist, is not intended by nature to be a successful speculator.
