MINISTERS OF PITTSBURG IN VITE "BASEBALL EVANGELIST" TO SPEAK AND THEY WISH NOW THAT THEY HAD NOT. Pittsburg, June 6. The ministers of Pittsburg invited Evangelist Hilly Sunday, former ball player, to come to them and deliver a lecture on "Why Some Ministers Fail,." Sunday reached town from Sharon, Pa., and some of the ministers are sorry he came, for his talk in the fashionable First Pres byterian church was from the shoulder and there was no mincing of words. He roasted the local ministers fear fully, saying that som- of tjiem ought to be back on the farm. In part Sun flay said: Too Much Buttermilk. Sunday said that one of the reasons most ministers failed -was because they were full of lemonade and but termilk instead of tobasco sauce and mustard. At one point he shouted: "I preach the uosnel of .Jesus Christ. I preach heaven and hell. I go back j i rhu r.l.l 1 Vi , r 1 1 if V If thn Pfillf't'TimiS if oi.intrm siMVH nno IhiiiLT :ind the lat- fst Kpliolarsbin savs another, then the latest scholarship can go plumb to 1. 1 for all I care." The evangelist said many of the min isters of the present, day were "fudge eating molly codles, w ho were con- j tinually springing bum bull" con to I their congregations." He asserted that few ministers of today are any thing but "stiffs," salary quacks, will ing to accept social distinction, and that many of them aro qualified can didates for the "funny liou.se." Continuing he said: "Some of you ministers are con trols d hy riches and not by the bible. Many of you are grafters pure and simple. You know this too. There are some of you preaching today that should be carrying the hod.' Finds Pal in Sheriff. During Sunday's address some jimusement was caused by his recogni tion of High Sheriff Addison G. Gum bert, of Pittsburg, who used to play ball in Sunday's time with Chicago. Gumbert slipped into the church quiet ly, hut Sunday recognized him and shouted: "There's just room for one more sin ner np front here. You come up here Ad and get into theis game. You'll enjoy it I know." High Sheriff Gumbert walked up I and took the seat designated by his old earn male and took a lively part in the proceedings. Sunday frequently using him as the butt of some joke. Gumbert latighed aloud when Sunday paid he would like to tear down all 1he religious seminaries in the country and duck the professors in mud pud dles. COTS ARE NECESSARY Profile of South L Street Not So Encouraging. NO REMONSTRANCE YET. When lot owners along the proposed South L street become thoroughly ac quainted with some of the phases of i the matter it is probable some of them will not be so optimistic as to results. The matter of the township building the street was called to the attention of the board of county commissioners and it has agreed upon the report of the viewers that the street shall be constructed. No remonstrance has been presented. The county surveyor has drawn a profile of the proposed street and it shows that the cuts which will be required will be unus ually deep In some places. This will cause some damage to the lots. SHOT WHILE SEATED AT DINING TABLE Florida Man's Assailant Man ages to Escape. Arcadia, Fla.. June 6. C. W.
