Some of the People "Who Hest and
Spiritual Waif Seeking Ifsrht Wen
and Women Wllliont irinaka.
Tbe Woman Who Lives Half
Her Lire In u Church.
Slowly but surely it is boini recognized in
New York that churc.iea can be made as
helpful to humanity every day. evjn in
their emptiness, as cn Sunday when their
people are eathered together and there is
service of song a ad prayer. The Romanists
have alvpys recognized the every-day uses
of the" emplesof worship and hold their
doors open all days, so that whoever would
might enter and partake of the holy calm,
the deep peace which them abounds.
A few of the Frotestant Episcopal
churches have always done so, notably old
Trinity, through whose open doors a strag
gling stream of pilgrimu continually filters.
Usually it is the curious rather than the da
Totional element which lures them thither.
They have beard of this splendid Gothic
structure, with its historic dead lying within
it and about it, and come to look at it with
Interested if not reverential eyes.
Three or four other Episcopal churches
have adopted the same plan of keeping their
doors open every day. Borne even put out
a notice of invitation to the public, telling
them they are welcome to enter. j
Having lived for more than a year in the i
vicinity of St. George's church, which is
directly west of Stuyvesant square, on Ruth,
erford place, between Seventeenth aad
Eighteenth streets, and passing it often. I
was attracted by the conspicuous invitation
in large gilt letters over the steps, "Come
In, Rest and Pray," and went in; not once,
but often. Very naturally one is drawn
toward any pleasant place where one's wel
come is unmistakable; and I grew fond of
going Into the big empty church and shut
ting out the noisa of the world and the
things of the world.
In some silent, psychological way I grew
acquainted with some of the people wIio
came ther-j often not their outer and con
ventional selves, but their inner and spirit
ual ones. O ce insido they cast elf their
masks of repression, worn so bravely In the
crowd, and their souls stood revealed. Thus
it was that somehow I learned to know that
this one was seeking courage to fight him
. self; that another was groping for light on
"a pathway enveloped in clouds; that still
anoth r stood wavering at the junction of
two roads, uncertain which to take and
trustfully toping that in the 6ilent cturcb
an apocalypse of light might point out the
So it was there; so It is elsewhere. All
are building blindly and eternally seeking
help from some power higher, mightier,
more enlightened than themselves.
St. George's church is a beautiful temple,
Gothic a& to construction, with two tower
ing steeples and a groat clock in one which
serves the people in the high stories around
about:instead of private time-eces. Rev.
Rains ford, its pastor, is an exceptionally
liberal-minded, as well as intelligent ram,
It was his idea to open the church through
the day, and he never rested until he inaug
urated the practice.
Then, too, it holds fast to its people by
means of various lit tie services, reminding
them that their spiritual needs are not for
gotten and keeping them within the influ
ence of its protecting arnn. Every mo -n-"
ing at nine o'clock there is a brief service,
into which many wander who raraly enter a
church when it is in its finsst array, filled
with the more prosperous. Sometimes there
are only six or eight person present, soma
times a dozen or more, sometime twenty or
twenty five, but the service is just the same.
They are not always the people o the church
who go because they are expected to; indeed,
I fancy there are but lew of ttaosa. They
are the spiritual waifs and wanderers,
people who belong nowhere, live nowhere
long, but' feel the need of some sort of
spiritual strength and seek it where it is
held out to them, as here.
In this big city, where the struggle for
life is so deadly, where many human beings
are always anxious, distraught and despair
ing, groping in thick darkness for a ray of
light, a gleam of hope, an open church like
St. George's Is a spiritual haven a place
where both body and soul can rest from the
fierce attrition of life.
Once inside, the world rolls away. The
incessant roar of the great city grows faint,
and even the thoughts of the world, which
but a moment ago seemed so engrossing and
perplexing, take flight. Thoughts are like
people; they will not stay where the atmo- ,
sphere is not congenial. i
These autumn days have a peculiar bauty
as felt through the sacred barrier of stained
glass windows and thick church walls. Here
and there a slanting panj lets in the dying
breath of the summer and that low. n lan
choly hum Of the insects which precedes the
death of vegetation. The dead leaves t

mg" trees, an occasional crisp and
crackling one floating Into the church and
rustling over the floor in the last struggle it
makes to take part in the affairs of life.
The shouts o' the chillren in tha park op
posite are heard as thout far off. the light
la'.la through the gorgeous windows in a
softened glory, and everything within in
And who are the people who come to this
empty church to "rest and pray?' They are
the young and active, -ne old and weaiy,
the rich with their concealed cankers the
lowly with their cross of penury, the hope
ful and the d sponding. They are the same
people we meet everywhere wearing the
armor of courage or the mask of br vado,
exulting in their strength or laugaing at the
weakness of others; but here th.-y lay
down pretense and acknowledge their own
You would imagine that more women
would come than men. Not so. Men, the
world's men, they who are known to be the
cunningest foxes in financial matters or the
sternest foemen in life's rude encounters,
stop and rest, if they do not pray, as
though even the sweet silence of the church
was grate, ul after the roar they -ad just
left. But they s em to pray.
Who is so strong, so self-sufficient that he
does not, at times, feel the need of uttering
himself in prayer, of callins :or strength
from a higher source? And who is so faith
less that an honest appeal to th invisible
agencies of good do s not help him Man is
only infatuated with his own greatness when
all goes welL Remove his props and in
stinctively he turns to something above him
One woman I saw in St. George's many
times. Young and well dressed, evidently
carefully cared for as far as material com
forts go, she was unmistakably troubled and
sad. She would sit motionless in a prayerful
attitude long at a time, and her eye were al
ways looking into futurity. I noticed that sha
gazed much in a thoughtful way at a fan. a
light, gilded paper thing, sprawled over
with Japanese figures. One day I passed in
as she passed out, and by accident seated
myself in the pew she had just vacated.
There lay the fan, forgotten. I picked it
up, and written across the gayest side of it
were these words:
"With steady mind thy course of duty run,
God never does, nor suffi rs to be done.
Aught but thyself wouldst do, couldst
The end of all events so weU as He."
From this noble text she had tried to
draw spiritual support in some trying exi
gency of her life, with what success I cannot
tell, as I never saw her again. The wor d
swallowed her. Distance hid her, or death
Many a printed line, ven a scrap of paper,
plays an important part in the direction of
a life. There is help in words if they are
not empty. If they are vehicles of noble
thought by keeping them in our mind- we
build up noble qualities in ourselves, in a
blind ray men understand this, and when
they rear churches and temples they fill
them with carven or gilded texts, which
being often read finally become ever
present to the minds of the readers and act
as sentinels against evil.
Over the pointed windows of St. George's
are texts in letters of gold on blue ground.
I noticed that one young man who was f re-qu.-ntly
there when I was-, al Trays sac oppo
site this text, and kept his eyes fixed upon it,
"Whoso followeth me shall not walk indark
n ss n Who knows what temptations were
driven away by that single line.
I saw one man there a few times who
seemed to be walking under the weight of a
heavy conscience. The phantom of regret
stalked so boldly in his heart that it looked
appealingly out of his eyes.
Even the rabble have greater considera
tion for things that are held sacred than
hey are supposed to have. The books are
all left in their racks in the pews and never
one has been molested, though men an 1 wo
men in rags wander in there and are as wel
come as tnose Clad in satins.
Tue sexton hovers about in the morning,
and in the afternoon a neat little old woman
in a black dress is always there. She sit
silent in a corner pew, as much a part of
the church as its great organ or its cush
ioned seat. Some women, no matter how
silently they sat, would disturb the grand
repose of this sacred interior scene. Not this
one. Gentle and soft spoken by nature, she
La lived in the emp:y church until s..e has
become sirituaiizdd and blends witu its
soiemn atmospheie like one trom another
world. She loves the church. It is, indeed,
her home. Half of every day spent there
endears it to uer. She has pieasant words
for all who speak to her and frowns for
"Don't you get lonely here sometimes," I
"No, miss, never. I like to stay in the
church. 1 c.n brinj my sewing or a news
paper to keep myseif company ; but I never
feel alone here, not even wnen there's no
human being in sight."
Then I asked if sha ever had any trouble
with the people who entered the church; if
tramps or thieves annoyed her.
"Never," she said. "No one has ever
given me a disagreeable word. All kuidsof
people come here, yes, the beggars and all,
but none have ever taken a cents' worth of
anything, or in any way misbehaved. Once
a poor old beggar lay down in one of the
pews and I told him he must get up, and he
did so without a word. I speak to taem soft
ly, and tney are never angry. They do
what I tell them."
I thought of the "soft answer which turn
eth away wrath," and of the patient polite
ness oiten found among what are called
"Of course there are some," she continued,
"who would make it a den of thieves, but I
watch them and speak to them -in time and
they away peaceably."'
"Do rrr ny persons come here while you

St. Peter's church. Roman Catholic, on
the corner o. Church and Barclay street, in
the very heart of the hurry ot down-town
life, is a great rest for the weary. Men
rush into it out' of the buitle of busiaeiS,
sink into a seat and offer a prayer, make a
genuflection before the altar and rush out
again to mix with the unspiritual business
of the day. In this cLurch, built by the
King of 6paiu, Cardinal McClOdkey was
baptized, the elder Bennett married, and his

to the city who go out early are oiten greatly
surprised to find that they are never out

Patrick's, is open, and a stream of people
passing in and out. Sometimes they follow

in awkward and awe-struck attitudes, lis

bustle of life without. At no time is the
cathedral deserted. Visitors or worshipers
are ever there while its doors are unclosed.
The lormer wander in, stare, speak in
whispers and flit out, but the latter stay long
enough to pray and rest their spirits, which
the heat and burden of the busy day have
