PREACHER HAS FAILINGS;
' DITTO THE CONGREGATION
BOYLE. HEIGHTS PASTOR ANA.
LYZES BOTH
Men and Not Pygmies Are Needed.
'Ther World Looks to the Ministry
for Good Examples, and Woe if
They Fall
"The Ideal Preacher" was the topic
of Rev. "Walter D. Martin, pastor of
the Boyle Heights Christian church,
yesterday morning. He said in part:
■ "Having: spoken last Sunday of 'The
Ideal Congregation,' it seems fitting
today to speak of 'The Ideal Preacher.'
And I am sure we shall find just as
large a field for observation and com
ment upon the latter subject as upon
the former. . '
"The- congregation has Its fallings,
10 has the preacher. • But we may
have an ideal for both toward which
we should ever strive.
- , "The ■ idal preacher will vary, no
doubt, in the minds of different per
sons. However, we should aim at the
divine ideal or scriptural ideal.
; "Let us try to view the preacher
with unprejudiced minds and see if we
can tell • what it takes to make an
ideal preacher.
"But, as I have Indicated, my ideal
niay differ somewhat from yours.
"He should be a man among men.
We should remember that the preacher
is a man and not an angel. Peter said
to Corneliuß, who prostrated himself
before him, 'I, myself also am a man.'
And- Paul said to the people of Lystra
when they would sacrifice to him and
Barnabus as gods: 'We also are men
of like passions with you.'
"The Ideal preacher -should be a man
and not a I pygmy. He should be a
manly man, and exemplary/, man. The
world looks, to the preacher I for a good
example and woe be unto him if they
do not find it. . ■. v>
1 "He should be a man with a mes
sage of good news,
"jesus said: 'Go preach the gospel,'
and the gospel is good news.
"If ever there was a man with a
message it ought to be the preacher of
the gospel.' And the man who poses
as a preacher and does not preach the
gospel has either lost his message or
never -had one. By the gospel I mean
just what Paul says the gospel is In
the k fifteenth chapter of First Corin
thians.
"lie should be a man of faith and
prayer. Certainly the leader of < Joel's
people ought 'to be a man of strong
faith and earnest prayer. He should
believe ; the word of Qod. Doubting
Thomases .< and unbelieving- . critics do
not '• make " ideal preachers,
"The ideal preacher, my Ideal
preacher J» a man ol simple, obedient,

chtld-llke faith and of fervent effectual
prayer.
."Ho should be« a man of large
vision. Like Paul, he will not be dis
obedient to the heavenly i vision. He
will be optimistic always, believing
that God's word will not return to him
void but accomplish that whereunto
He sent It.
"But to come to some very practical
things in closing,
"The Ideal preacher will appear be
fore the people ns becometh his high
railing. Out of the pulpit he will keep
himself properly clothed and in his
right mind. He will be dignified but
not stiff and will move freely among
the people.
"He will be n. faithful, Bhepherd or
pastor, looking nftcr the needs and
welfare of his people.
"He will be a student, giving care
ful attention to the preparation of his
sermons. In the pulpit he will be rev
erent, handling the word of God as one
who shall give account to God.
"He will have regard also to his
people In speaking and will not talk
too loud or too low.
"He will not preach too long or too
short; neither will he be a chronic
scolder, but will be 'Instant In season
nnd out of season; reprove, rebuke and
exhort with all long suffering and doc
trine,' trying to give each his portion
In due Befeson.
"And he will not shun to declare the
whole counsel of God."
MAN SHOT IN QUARREL
MAY DIE FROM WOUND
HENRY ALTON IN DANGERFOUS
CONDITION AT HOSPITAL
Other Principal In the Dispute Lies at
the Police Station "and Ptsalbly
May Be Forced to Face a Charge
of Murder
As a result of the pistol duel Satur
day night between Henry Alton and
Henry Slmpson.both men are under the
surveillance of the police, and Alton,
who was taken to the county hospital,
may die from his wound, which struck
him near the spinal cord.
Henry Simpson, who has been In the
dining car service of the Santa Fe for
several years, Is in the receiving hos
pital resting comfortably and with
every prospect of a rapid recovery.
If Alton dies Simpson may have a
charge of murder placed against him.
The trouble occurred over a woman
with whom Alton had been living In a
room near the corner of First and
Geary streets. , .' ■ ,
After a quarrel between the' two the
woman went to another house at Third
and Geary streets and Alton went in
search of her.
According to Simpson, the other man
came to the Third street house and
tried to make trouble. Simpson says
that he went out into the ' street and
tried to induce Alton, who had been
drinking, to go away. In the quarrel
that followed Alton drew his revolver
and shot Simpson, the bullet making a
superficial wound in the abdomen.
Simpson pursued his assailant and,
overtaking him, had a tussle and final
ly succeeded in wresting the pistol
away from the other and shot him in
the back.
Simpson then threw the weapon over
a fence and went back to the Third
street house.
Sergeant Walker got the news of.the
shooting about the time it was tele
phoned to the police station and by
some quick work got down to the scene
before the patrol wagon. Both men
were put under arrest and taken to
the station, and Alton's wound prov
ing to bo serious he was removed to
the county hospital. Little Is known of
the man, although he said he worked
for Henry Angelo.Nthe contractor.
Simpson lives at 151 Vine street and
Is well known among railroad men on
the* Santa Fe.

TRUANTS TELL
A FAIRY TALE
YOUTHS HAD WARM BEDS BUT
PREFERRED BARN
Waifs From Children's Home. Society
Awaken Sympathy by I maglna.
tlve Btory That Older '■»
Lad Told
Charles Hill and Arthur Wilson, who
told a pitiful tale to the police Satur
day night about losing their mother
while she , was shopping and who
claimed to be famishing for food,
turned out yesterday to be two
naughty little boys who had run away
from the kindly care of Rev. O. V. Rice,
superintendent of the Children's Home
society at East Twenty-fifth street and
Griffith avenue.
For playing truant from school both
boys had been punished Friday by the
principal and they decided to run away
and bee what the world had in store
for them.
That night they had no warm bed
to creep Into and so they went into a
barn on Ferndale avenue, and Satur
day morning Joseph Bine found them
there, took them into the house for. a
meal . and finally turned them over to
the police.
Said They Were Lost
The boys whimpered out a pitiful
story of losing their way home and
said that their father was In Bakers
field and their mother had become sep
arated from them while she was shop
ping.
After hearing their story Special
Officer Fred Stellmacher took the boys
to the detention home, where they re
mained Saturday night.
They gave the name . of Wilson and
got a lot of sympathy from the matron,
who tucked them up in bed and cried
over the homeless wanderers.
Yesterday the pretty little story was
found to be a fabrication of the older
boy, Charles Hill, and hie little accom
plice cried bitterly when confronted
with the truth. »
• "It warn't my fault," he said.
"Charlie thought it would be a lot of
fun to be out seeln' things and he
nxorl up the story. I am very sorry."
• The little fellow, who is only 8 years
old, was sent back 'to the home on
East Twenty-fifth street, while the
older boy was kept at the detention
home until his case can be disposed of.
Orphans Well Cared For
Neither of the boys have parents liv
ing and they have been well cared for
by the 'kind-hearted officers of the
Children's Home society.
"I am very Borry that this has been
made public," said liev. O. V. Rice,
the superintendent. "Both boys are
good little fellows and I should not
like anythong to come out that would
hurt them In securing home 3 wfth some
good family who wish to take in a
boy. ■'.•.■>• ■ •
"Their teacher reproved them for
playing truant and then both got the
Idea that It would be a fine thing to
run away. I dare say they were pretty
miserable Friday night sleeping in the
barn.
"I shall take good care of Arthur.
He Is very young and was Influenced
by the older one.
"Both are good little chaps, however,
and they did It In a spirit common to
many other boyj."
The fertile imagination of the Hill
boy was astonishing and everyone who
heard his story placed credence in it
until the real facts came out.
The police say that a good spanking
would perhaps have a salutary effect,
and perhaps the remedy has been tried.
Boy Charged With Theft
Auguetln Amavlsca, charged with the
larceny of a bicycle, was booked at the
police station yesterday and was then
taken over to .the detention home to
await arraignment this morning.. The
tooy was arrested by Officer McGann,

BE WELL-ROUNDED MEN '
IS PREACHER'S. ADVICE
REV. FRANK TALMAGE ON MOD.
ERATION
"Do Not Ride a Hobby to Death, and
D- Not Focus Your Eyes Upon
One Truth to the Exclusion of
Otrrers
Rev. Frank DeWltt Talmage In dis
cussing "Bearing and Forbearing" be
fore his congregation yesterday taught
a timely lesson on the. wisdom of exer
cising tolerance and forbearance be
tween man and man.
He found his text in Phil. 4:5, "Let
your, moderation bo known unto all
men."
•He said in part: . . ■
"What does the Pauline word, 'mod
eration' mean? 'I know,' says one. 'It
means: Do not be an extremist; do not
ride a hobby to death; do not focus
your eyes upon one truth so long that
you become blinded to the relative im
portance of other truths, nor upbn one
error until you lose sight of the evil
effects of all other errors.'
" 'Virtue Is a road which has a hedge
and a ditch on both sides,' once wrote
a famous writer. 'A man may be mod
erate in one thing and not In another.
A man ( may be a skeptic so far as eat
ing and drinking are concerned, and
yet he may be licentious. A man who
has no ambition may be avaricious. It
is not enough to be right in one mat
ter if you are careless on other matters
equally Important.'
" 'Let your moderation be known to
all men' means: Do not be a fanatic,
a one-sided monstrosity, like a dove
with one wing cropped, flapping about
in the barnyard and yet unable tt> rice
ten feet into God's great heaven of
blue.
"Do not expend all your energies
preaching against the evils of Intoxica
tion, and at the same time be a glut
ton.
"Do not preach against gambling
with cards when you gamble with rail
road stocks.
"Do not berate the thief who steals
a loaf of bread and honor the thief
who cheats his neighbor in a real estate
deal.
"Do not advocate physical culture to
such an 'extent that you ride one hun
dred miles a day on a bicycle, or be
such a 'fresh-air fiend' that your open
window In the railroad train will be
blowing a dangerous draught upon the
passengers who sit in your rear.
» "Be a well-rounded man.
"Be like a plant with leaves and pis
tils, and stamens and sepals and petals,
growing upon a 'supple stem, able to
bend every whither, yet with roots an
chored in the solid earth, and not like
a balloon tilled with a noxious gas,
tossed about in the air, the plaything
of every stray wind.'.'
Knife Used in Quarrel
Valentine Terres and D. Habereras
got into a quarrel yesterday afternoon
on New High street and Terres was
stabbed in the back by his companion.
Both were taken to the police station

The voice was a shrill tiny treble and
it sounded unusually pathetic to one of

as he turned from poring over a num
ber of complaints registered Saturday
afternoon.
By the side bt the desk and Just able
to peep over the" edge was the flushed

'youngster, and for a moment the officer
was startled at the tiny apparition.
But as there came the sound of two
little shoes shuffling somewhere on the
other side of the desk the officer took
cournste and began to think that it
might be a child after all.
"Who are you and what do you
want?" queried the officer, and the
great bluo eyes of the child opened wide
with surprise as he answered: "I'm

GRAVE PROBLEM
CONFRONTS CITY
CONTRACTORS. THREATEN TO
BEGIN SUIT
Deadlock Over Board of Public Works
Vis Adding Further Complications •
to the Stoppage of .-
Improvements
"The lack of . a board of public
works is a much . more serious ques
tion than many persons seem to real
ize," said Assistant City Attorney
Robertson. "All local ' improvement
and the Owens river scheme come to
a standstill. In addition, if -this dead
lock continues, it will be but a short
time until the city has any number of
suits on Its hands from contractors
who have performed work according
to specifications, but who, owing to
the fact that the money secured for
the purpose of paying them is held
up through there being no board to
handle the question, are unable to col
lect.- The fcontractors are not going to
wait much longer and will soon com
mence suits against the city."
Not only is this the case with con
tractors who have already performed
their work, but there are many con
tractors who by reason of having the
lowest bids are entitled to begin work
on proposed public improvements, but
who cannot do so on account of their
failure to receive awards of contract.
Refuse All Conditions
The mayor has stipulated that he
will sign all awards of contracts on
which the preliminary work was com
pleted before the first of the year, pro
vided the contractors will sign an
agreement before witnesses to absolve
the city and himself from liability in
the event of a mandamus suit to" pre
vent payment on these contracts. To
this most of the contractors refuse to
agree and In their turn threaten to
begin mandamus suits to compel the
awards.
Most of the contractors declare they
are only holding off from their pro
posed suits In the hope that the dead
lock will soon be broken and the
mayor and council agree on a board of
works. Several of them declared last
week that if today did not see a chance
for a settlement of the question they
would immediately begin suit.
PREACHER PLEADS FOR

POINTED OUT
Septuageslma Sunday Is Observed
With. High Masr, and Powerful
Sermon Is Preached Concerning
Value of Earnestness In This Life
Septuageslma Sunday, third Sunday
before the beginning of Lent, or the
seventieth day before Easter, was ob
served yesterday at the Cathedral of
St. Vlblana with high mass, Rev. E.
A. Heffernan preaching the sermon.
Father Heffernan took tor his text:
"Know you not that they that run in
the race all run indeed, but one re
ceive th the prize? So run that you
may obtain." He said in part:
"St. Paul filled with zeal for the glory
of Qod and the salvation of his fellow
men thus addresses the Corinthians.
He, whose Intellect was enlightened by
the Holy Ghoßt and whose will was
moved by the same holy spirit, wished
to Impress upon them the Importance
of their salvation and the earnestness
with which they should strive to ob
tain It. The spirit world by its very
nature fails to impress its beauty on
imin'H mind. Men oftentimes fall to
realize that this life is but a stepping
stone to eternity; that 'we have not
here a lasting city.'

treatment of bay."
Patrovsky was warned several months
ft go to take better care of his horses.
The accused was a peddler and drove
his horse and a rented animal to a
dilapidated wagon.
The horse first came to the notice of
the humane officers several months ago
when It was put up for auction.,. At
that time the officers made an nxamln
atlon and asserted that the animal was
a fit candidate for the boneyard.
The bidding started well at 23, roue
rapidly to 30 cents, nnd the animal was
fllnally sold to Tatrovsky, who came in
late, for *8.
Horse Goes to Sleep
With Joy In his heart, the itunslftn
hitched the steed to his dilapidated
chariot and started to drive homeward. '
He had proceeded about ten feet when
suddenly the home began to sneeze.
This was followed by a spell of hlc- j
coughs, and then the animal began to !
go to sleep.
Words, beatings and cajolery failed,
and It was not until Patrovsky got
down from the wagon and oiled the
animal's rusty hinges that the mighty
steed consented to proceed.
Five weeks ago the peddler was or
dered to give the animal a three
months' vacation on full pay. The old
plug was allowed to enjoy himself for
several days and then Patrovsky de
cided that ths horse had had enough
rest, and the animal went back to
work.
Last week the officers of the S. P.
C. A. again detected the steed dashing
down the street like a piece of sticking
plaster, and "Caterplllas," for such
was the horse's name, was again or
dered on the sick list.
Patrovsky escaped, and since then,
according to the statements of his wife
and babies, he has been afraid to re
turn to his home for fear of arrest.
When the humane officer had heard
the baby's plea yesterday he gave the
youngster a note, granting pardon to
the father, and last night there was a>
reunion at the Patrovsky residence in
■ which Alexander was th« guest of
honor.
'the children of thi3 world are wiser in
their generation than the children of
light.' Thereby conveying to us that
the votaries of this world, those who
live according to ideas and maxims of
the world, those who believe in no life
beyond the grave, are wiser in adopt
ing means to attain their end than the
sons of God are In securing the salva
tion of their Immortal souls. The rea
son Is we do not stc-p to think. 'With
desolation,' says the prophet,' Jere
miah*, 'Is the whole land made desolate,
because there is no 'man that thlnketh
in his heart.' And spiritual writers,
men filled with the spirit of God, men
with experience of the troubles of life,
tell us that meditation and prayer are
the rounds of the ladder leading to
eternal life. » ■•'.-.•; ,"■> :-•". ',•.'. .;,;-,. ;.,
" "We must ask ourselves 'whence did
we come and whither. are we going?'
Reason, augmented by . faith,' tells us
that we came. from God and that our
end is God. Ah! if we attain that end,
all is well. What matters it whether
I have friends or enemies If I save, my
soul. But on the other hand, if ( I am
lost, the loss is Irreparable. Lost once,
lost forever. But, Oh God! I realize
that I am free to choose eternal happi
ness or eternal misery.
"My soul, what is it? It is that
which makes me the lord of creation.
A spirit, think of it, made into the
image and likeness of God, endowed
with an Intellect whose object Is truth
and with a will whose object is good,
faculties that cannot be satiated until
they are In the contemplation of truth
itself and the enjoyment of goodness
Itself.
"Meditating on these truths, unless
we are mad men, we will make use of
the means which God has placed at our
disposal. Within each and all of us
there Is some vice which Is the root
of all our vices. Let us lay the ax
to the root. God will be with us, and
when God is with us who is against'
us? Let us in the morning before
proceeding to cur business make the
sign of the cross on our foreheads. Let
the sweet name of Jesus be often on
our lips. At night let us examine our
conscience, making our besetting sin
the principal object. Thus we shall run
our race well. Jesus is at the goal
waiting to crown us with a crown of
everlasting glory."
