Seven Young Persons Consecrate Their
Lives to Religious Work at Ser
vices at the First Meth
odist Church
At the Southern California Metho
dist conference yesterday morning
Simpson auditorium was packed with
hundreds who wished to hear the ser
mon preached by Bishop Berry.
Bishop Berry took his text from Isa
iah, 11:10: "And in that day there shall
be a root of Jesse, which shall stand
for an ensign of the people; to it shall
the Gentiles seek; and his rest shall
be glorious." He said in part:
"It was with the fullness of the glory
of God that Christ came into the world.
The people were longing for him, not
withstanding many ridiculed him anU
his precepts. The worshipers of other
gods were longing for a promised Mes
siah and I think that the Song of Glory
did not surprise them much, for they
had worked themselves up for the or
deal. When Jesus was the most de
sired by the people, he came among
them with this simple declaration:
'Come unto me, all ye that labor and
are heavy laden, and I will give you
"The supremacy of Jesus Christ is the
head of the entire world. A greater
knowledge of Him is the universal de
mand. Men have searched the skies to
ascertain if there were other worlds.
They have plunged into the depths of
the eea, climbed to the mountain
heights and passed through fire and
blood to obtain the coveted knowledge.
But with all this investigation, how
much there remains in mystery to man!
You and I might ask each other many
questions which could not be answered
within our human knowledge.
"The simplicity of a little child car
ries much weight with the educated,
except the sophomore, 'who knows it
all,' when he lisps •Twinkle, twinkle,
little star, how I wonder what you are?'
The mystery still remains among th?
learned astronomers.
"The questions come before us, 'Why
does not God kill the devil for the good
of the people?' And again, 'Why is the
sainted woman allowed to starve, when
on the other hand another person, a
vile reptile in the world with all hi?
luxuries, is allowed to prosper In
■worldly affairs?'
Mysteries Create Unrest
"These are mysteries which create
unrest. But you say we have no busi
ness to indulge in doubts along these
lines. Then we might as well say that
we have no business to think. All we
can do is to study God's holy word of
•which He is His own Interpreter and
as you are longing for rest, go right on
reading, stdying and doing your best
to obtain it. If you have doubts, exer
cise patience — for what thou knowest
not now, it will be revealed hereafter
and the darkness will be turned intc
The bishop here turned , aside and
dwelt upon some of the Issues of the
"The multiplicity of labor saving ma
chines," said the bishop, "has marked
many changes in the world of labor.
We have been brought face to face with
the problems. Opposing factions are
forming processions pitting against
each other with slogans very uncom
plimentary and of selfish natures.
"But you say, 'Is not it right to look
out for number one?' The answer is
in the affirmative, providing it is not at
the expense of number two.
"But some men worship worldly ob
jects, including themselves, for the
comforts of life. Others complain that
unrest is caused by the constant re
minders of sin. This unrest is entirely
with you to be only overcome by the
power of God over sin to obtain the
coveted rest."
Seven Are Consecrated
With the afternoon sun streaming
through the stained glass windows, in a
solemn benediction, four young men and
three young women yesterday after
noon at the First Methodist church con
secrated their lives to the glory of God
and the advancement of his church
and to spread the glad tidings of recon
ciliation with God the Father, through
the atonement of Jesus Christ.
Bishop Berry solemnly pronounced
the words of the impressive Methodist
ritual, assisted by Presiding Elders J.
B. Green, John L. Pitner, A. W. Adkin
son and S. A. Thomson. Harold K.
Van, Charles W. Robert and A. G.
I,erma were consecrated deacons and
Albert H. Ore was consecrated elder.
Following the' consecration of the
young men three young women, Misses
Jessie Pratt. Edith Baxter and Eliza
beth X.oughead, were consecrated dea
Bishop Berry gave a short address of
advice and encouragement to those who
had formally entered the service of the
Master. He said:
"I want you all to be soldiers under
marching orders. Soldiers of Jesus
Christ, ready to endure hardness. Paul
said, 'I am crucified with Christ.' Paul
was a soldier.
"Paul, when he became a Christian
soldier, threw overboard, as it were, all
things and made a tremendous sacri
fice. He gave up all hope of preferment
by the Roman government and the
Jewish church. He was a Hebrew of
Hebrews. He gave up his claim for
special favor as a Pharisee.
"These brethren and these young men
— God help them to utterly surrender
themselves to him. That is what it is
to be a true Christian. We are startled
when we read Paul's exhortation to
present our bodies as a living sacrifice.
"To be a Christian is to follow Christ,
when the glad hosannas are sung and
to follow him to the crown of thorns,
to Gethsemane and to stand in the
presence of the cross If need be.
Heroic Living Demanded
"The great demand of these times is
a revival of the heroic in the Christian
life. The line between the church and
the world has been almost blotted out.
It is hard to distinguish between tha
disciples of God and those of the
Bishop Berry closed with a pathetic
anecdote of a mission in the slums of
Chicago, detailing the life story of a
little ragged boy, who gave up all for
Christ when he learned of hia love.
4 He told of his sufferings at the han-.la
of his anarchist father and drunken
mother when they learned he had be
come a Christian, and at the end, when
he was dying, pitifully handed the
bishop six pennies which he had saved
as "Jesus' part" from his earnings as a
Epworth League Rally
•An Ep worth league rally was held
last evening at the Boyle Heights
Methodist chufch with a large attend
ance. Dr. Lehman Lowder, president
of the league, presided. The chorus
choir and orchestra furnished music
with W. L. Cleveland as leader. The
Premier Male quartet aIBO participated.
Rev. E. M. Randall, general secretary
of the Epworth league, preached from
I Corinthians 3:9: "For we are labor
ers together with God." He said In
"I think we fully understand that
we should be fellow-workers with God.
There is much significance In His up
lifting spirit that makes us fellow
workers with Him. Christ bore His
cross, saying, 'It is finished.' You and
I are His successors In proclaiming Hia
message in completing His work. The
Holy Spirit is pleased to work within
us to carry out His precepts In maktn;
us fellow-workers with Him, which Is
a great privilege. From the fact that
we are fellow-workers we should
preach the gospel to all creatures. Our
Lord has defined His position with His
own. He says that we are the salt of
the earth and His witnesses. Our busi
ness is to do His work and there are
many lessons taught us through His
parables that we go out Into the high
ways and byways to gather in the
"There is no use In our praying un
less we are honest in It. Too many
people are willing to see others saved,
but are unwilling to give themselves
up to salvation and enter the work of
saving those around them. They
would like to step into the kingdom in
rorae way without exerting themselves
for their fellow-men.
"We were made the Images of Christ,
but through our sins we departed from
Him. But upon our return to Him we
nre made fellow-workers with Him and
if we are His we are the true branch
and He makes us fruitful.
"We should do all In our power to
Induce others to come to the Savior.
It is those who doeth the will of the
Lord who are acceptable in His sight.
And in this doing we must vigilantly
press to the high calling and converse
with those around us who are out of
Christ's kingdom and bring them in.
It seems nothing less than murder to
neglect these privileges. It is appall
ing to see the indifference of the so
called Christian people in not ex
lendlng their Influences among those
vith whom they are connected in the
laily walks of life, to bring them with
in the knowledge of Christ. We should
ay aside all hindrances that would
prevent us from doing our utmost in
following the precepts of being true
fellcw-workers with our Master."
.$30,000 DAMAGE
Flames Consume Myrtle Avenue Plan,
ing Mill and Four Dwelling Houses
Before Fire Fighters Can Gain Con.
trol — Prompt Action Saves Life
One man was nearly burned to death
and three families were barely able to
escape with their lives In a fire which
broke out in the Myrtle Avenue Pinning
mill at 3:30 o'clock yesterday morning.
Before the flames could be controlled
the planing mill and four dwelling
houses had been destroyed, entailing \
loss of $30,000, with practically no in
The cause of the fire is unknown. It
is believed to have started In the rear
of the two-story planing mill at 1316
131S Myrtle avenue. The flames spread
so rapidly that when the fire companies
arrived at about 4 o'clock the mill and
yards were nearly consumed and th?
fire had spread to the house next door,
owned by Swan Johnson, a retired
ranchman, and across the street to the
home of Robert Hagenow.
Joe Kelly, a young man living in the
neighborhood, attempted to run be
tween the burning buildings to turn in
an alarm but was overcome by the in
tense heat and fell to the ground uncon
scious, being badly burned about the
neck and hands. The prompt action of
his brother, who threw a coat over hl-s
head and carried him out of danger,
saved his life.
Swan Johnson and his wife, who were
the sole occupants of their house, said:
"We were awakened about 3:30 by the
noise of the flames and saw that the
shop next door was afire. We slept It
the front bedroom upstairs, and my
wife and I had barely time to get on a
portion of our clothing and rush down
stairs before our house was aflame.
"We carried no Insurance and our
loss on the house Is $2500 and $1000 on
our household goods, none of which
we could save. I tried to break into
the window at the south side of the
house and save something, but I cut lr.y
hand and the heat drove me away "
E. D. Russell, a negro, who occuple.l
a small house on the rear of the John
son property, was awakened by the
flames about 3:30 and was only able to
save his trunk before the house was
burned. He lost about $200 worth of
personal effects.
Household Effects Burned
A man named Peterson, living in a
small house in the rear of the planing
mill, also lost all his household effects,
while the houses of R. Gruebnau, 1315
San Julian street, and Loren Larsen,
1319 San Julian street, were damaged
by the heat. A hand of Rudolph, the
17-year-old son of R. Gruebnau, was
burned while he was at work on the
roof of the house, and his father lost
$50 worth of carpenter tools in a shed
in the rear which was consumed.
The fire leaped from Johnson's house
to the house of Mrs. Fred Pfennig and
burned a corner of it, causing a damag?
of about $300 to the house and household
While the front of the house of Robert
Hagenow was entirely burned, he saved
nearly all his household effects, losing
about $100 worth.
The planing : mill was owned by
George H. Wahlenmaler, jr., and W. F.
Wahlenmaier. W. F. Wahlenmaier
said: "Our loss is about $25,000 on thfl
plant, with only $3500 insurance.
"We shut down Saturday afternoon
about 4 o'clock and there was no fire
about the plant. Our shavings were
carted away In the afternoon, and as 1
was awakened by the flames I saw that
the fire did not start In the engine
room but in the rear of the building.
"My son turned In an alarm and then
came back and saved the three horses
in the stables at the rear of our house.
We tried to get Into the yards, but he
heat was so intense that it drove us
back. I do not know how the fir?
started. We have no watchman. We
employed from six to ten men and have
been running for three years. A two
story planing mill, a shed full of fin
ished lumber, a molding rack and sev
eral hundred thousand feet of lumber
were burned."
Engine companies 9 and 10 and hose
company 3 responded to the first alarm,
and engine companies 7, 8 and 17 and
hose company 2 responded to the second
alarm. The efforts of the firemen were
directed to saving the surrounding
property, and at 7:30 o'clock In the
morning the flames were nearly extin

Gallant Men and Envious Women
Greet Pretty Maids at Every
Station Where Train
Makes Stops
Twenty-four handsome girls, chatter
ing and laughing like a bunch of school
children turned loose for vacation,
some with high blonde pompadours and
others with low black ones, descended
from the Sultan of Sulu's private train
at the Salt Lake depot yesterday
morning and immediately took posses
sion of not only every man in sight
of the station, but of a representative
of the Salt Lake road, who was there
to meet the first opera troupe to cross
the western section of the continent
by way of the new route.
The troupe went out for a good time,
such as only chorus girls can have,
and even the rubber plants in the sta
tion yard turned their heads in ad
miration as the trimly shod feet and
dainty ankles tripped past.
Madison Corey, manager of the
troupe, was the first man to leave the
special, and after him came the sultan
and the string of girls, who are known
in play as the sultan's wives. The
harem did not think much of their
marriage vows yesterday, as they
started for their hotels and Manager
Corey allowed them a few hours free
dom, while he told the story of one of
the most remarkable trips in the his
tory of the country to a number of
his friends.
"We started from Salt Lake for Los
Angeles several days ago," said the
smiling manager. "For some time past
there has been trouble between the
opera troupes and the railroad com
panies out in this western land and as
a result we welcomed the advent of the
now road with a shout of rejoicing. The
Salt Lake people treated us royally.
We could have given several perform
ances along the route and made money,
but there was a lack of show houses.
"In some way or other, telegrams
were sent ahead to every station that
a real opera company was coming
through the country and the natives
turned out to give us a welcome. My,
but there were some naughty boys
among th» crowds that awaited at
every station.
"As soon as the train would near a
town the men would giither, while the
women would stand in the back
ground with that I-don't-belleve-her
hair-ls-real-anyhow appearance and
oast painful glances at their ungal
lant attendants.
"When the train would slow up,
there would be a rush for the car
where the chorus girls were quartered,
and the natives would climb up the
steps and look in at the windows in
an effort to ge'. a glimpse of the girls.
"At other stations the scene woulr]
be different. Great brown miners and
plainsmen, with their red shirts turned
in at the neck, would street us at the
train. Round and round they would
walk, looking at the nirls as though
they were the first specimens of the
feminine oddity seen in those narts
for many years. But the girls didn't
mind. They were the only women for
hundreds of miles around and they
rather enjoyed the novel sensation of
having things all their own way.
"Buttinsky" Drummer
"There were several coaches on the
train besides those occupied by us. and
on one of these was the as-usual drum
mer, who always finds a way to 'butt
in.' Well, he made a hit with one of
the girls and as a result his opinion of
himself rose several notches in a very
few minutes.
"A senator from Nevada became en
raptured with another girl and the two
men nearly stole those chorus ladles
before I was aware of the fact. I broke
up the mutiny by offering the girls
their little blue envelopes with per
mission to quit at Los Angeles and
after that I had no trouble.
"At Las Vegas the natives were
given the treat of their lives, and one
which they will remember for a long
time. The station agent had roped in
a number of burros from the sane
brush and the girls were all sent for
a ride.
"For a while the burros could not be
forced to move because of their habit
of turning around to look at their
riders. Those animals were the true
game sports all right and when they
finally started and hit the high places
along the trail and the lingerie began
to wave in the air, even the jack rab
bits ducked out of the brush and stood
shaking their paws at the free ex
"Inside the trnin the girls proved as
much of an attraction to the other
passengers as to the outside natives.
Nearly every girl in the chorus is an
expert poker player and when Miss
Bernice Harte trimmed a smart west
ern outfit of $14.35 the rest of them
took off their hats and decided that
pinochle was the game for children
without nurses.
"We have a Sultan of Sulu cocktail
with a chery in it, and this became
quite popular and we printed a num
ber of formulas and distributed them
so that anyone who sees that famous

While Officer Randolph was leading
a raid on five negro dens Saturday
evening, one that the p >llce department
considers the most Important that has
occurred In months, his 7-year-old
daughter was dying at her home. Not
until after the raids had been brought,
to a successful culmination was Officer (
Randolph told that his child had passed
away, and when the news came It
nearly prostrated him.
The "clubs" raided arcs the most
notorious and dangerous dens of vice In
the city, according to the police. They|
are the San Fernando club, said to bei
owned by John Bird; Lou's club, said
to be owned by Lou Simpson; the Man

At the stroke of 10 squads of officers
detailed for the work entered each of
the five places, and in every case except
one the surprise was complete, and not
the slightest resistance was offered.
Under the direction of Capt. Bradlsh,
Officers Glenn and Randolph have been
working to secure sufficient evidence to
convict the three score whites and

was the work carried out that all were

Rev. Frank DeW'itt Talmage
preached ujion the" subject "A Wo
man's Victory" yesterday, taking his
text from Esther 4:lfi, "If I perish I
perish." He said in part:
"Read today the tragic history of
Queen Vashti. No one can truly study
the life of Queen Esthor, unless he
places alongside of her face the beau
tiful face of Queen Vashti, who was
her predecessor in the royal palace of
:i:o Medes and the Persians.
"The great capital of Shushan, about
two hundred miles away from Babylon,
is ablaze with lights. All the princes
and l!ie governors of the different
provinces are being entertained In the
royal palaces. The streets of the city
are festooned with flags and banners.
The bravest warriors of the army of
King Ahasuerus have assembler) their
ttoops for the magnificent military
"The bedrooms where the guests
slept seemed to be the sleeping apart
ments of an Aladdin. The beds were
of solid gold, the tapestries of cost
liest linens, soft and fragrant in per
fumes. The floors were all of the
finest mosaic. Every cup was a chalice,
and each chalice of especial workman
ship, hand-made, and formed by the
fingers of a master designer. Not
only that, but every guest for the
seven days could do as he willed. The
chariots of the royal stables were all
his. The most expensive viands of the
banquet tables were his.
"The royal entertainment had been
going on for nearly a week. It reached
its great climax on the night before
King Ahasuerug and the governors
and the rrinces were to separate. The
chamberlains were there. Louder and
louder played the music; more and
more hilarious became the sport.
"Now it was an overturned decanter:
again it was a fallen lord, tumbling
upon the floor in a drunken stupor.
The courtiers were drunk, the king
was drunk. And on the seventh day,
when the heart of the king was merry
—what happened?
"The king turns to his fawning,
cringing guests and says: 'Now, gen
tlemen, I will show a sight the like
of which you have never seen in the
past, and you will never see again.
I will compel my beautiful queen,
Vashti, to come into the banquet hall
and unveil herself before you Inebri
ated men. I will compel my queen to
obey me because I am her master.
Ho, chamberlain! Go forth and bring
Vashti to me, and let her reveal her
beauty before these drunken brutes.
"The messengers hastened away.
They went to the queen's apartments
and carried the king's commands. The
outraged queen drew herself to her
full height. Her cheeks flushed, her
eyes glittered with excitement, her
hands convulsively clutched as she
raid: 'Go back to your royal master.
Tell him I will not come. My honor Is
more sacred to me than my throne.'
"When she spake thus, she knew in
all probability she was signing her
own death warrant. Because she re
fused to come, Vashti lost her throne.
She was exiled In perpetual disgrace.
"Yet these were the tyrannical laws
which held women in perpetual deg
radation that Queen Esther was ready
to defy when she went to plead with

"As Queen Esther was ready to take
a share in the responsibilities of her |
husband, a wife should be a positive
quality in the moral world, not a nega
tive one.
"An old English author once wrote:
'A good wife should be like three
things in some ways, but in others shfi
should not be like.
' "First, she Fhould be like a snail,
to keep within her own house; but she
should not be like the snail to carry all
she has upon her back,
' "Secondly, she should be like an
echo, to speak when spoken to; bui
should not be like an echo always to
have the last word.
' "Thirdly, she should be like a town
clock, always to keep time and regu
larity: but she should not like a town
clock speak so loud that all the town
may hear her.'
"I do not agree with that old English
writer at all. Ido not believe a woman
should be an echo, and only speak
when spoken to. She should be like
Cjueen Esther. She should cease to
be the plaything of man. She should
cease to be the humorer of masculine
whims. She should nobly and fear
lessly take her position by her hus
band's side, and help him to solve *.he
great problems of life. She should 'lo
this, even if she has to say, as did the
noble queen of my text, "And if I
perish, I perish.' "

Mrs. Potts Tells How "Women Should
Prepare for Motherhood
The darkest clays of hiisband and
wife are when they come to look for
ward to childless and lonely old age.
Many a wife has found herself inca-
pable of motherhood owiujr to a dis-
placement of the womb or lack ol
strength in the generative organs.
Airs. Anna Potts
Frequent backache and distressing
pains, accompanied by offensive dis-
charges and generally by irregular
and scanty menstruation indicate a dis-
placement or nerve degeneration ol
the womb and surrounding organs.
The question that troubles women
is how can a woman who has some fe-
male trouble bear healthy children?
Mrs. Anna Potts, of 510 Park Avenue,
Rot Springs, Ark., writes:
