Graham Praises News Writers for Criticisms Of "The Devil." , HYPOCRITS ARE CENSURED PALLADIUM EDITORIAL DENOUN CING THE PRODUCTION FOR IT8 LACK OF MORALITY WAS APPROVED BY THE PASTOR. Local news writers received com- - mendatlon at the hands of the Rev. Thomas J. Graham, pastor of the First Presbyterian church in his sermon yes terday, for their attitude in condemn ing "The Devil," as produced by a Savage company at a local theater last week. The church members who pro fess their unfaltering belief in God, but at the same time pay "their good money" to patronize such dramatic performances were ridiculed by the minister. The editorial comment of , The Palladium in which the play was denounced severely for its lack of morality was approved. The Rev. Mr. Graham selected his text from t!tf second Psalmt "He that sitteth in the Heavens shall laugh." The reference to "The Devil" was ex temporaneous on the part of the speak er. He had not chosen to deliver a tirade against the drama, but called attention to the play in a casual man ner. "God does not laugh at the limi tations, poverty nor sorrows of his people but at the attempts of the Evil One," declared the minister. "The people go to see 'The Devil with the modern idea that he has been laugh ed out of court, but the fact that church members will spend their good money to see such a show, only proves he does exist. God laughs at the devil and his attempts to gain au thority, because he sets himself up to rule the world without regard to Him and without authority." At one point in "The Devil," the Im personation , of the "evil one" offers the two lovers in liaison everything, if they will abandon their consciences to the yearnings of their passions and do as he directs. The scene could not fail to reveal to the spectators the evi dent Intent of the author to refer to the scene between Christ and the Devil on the mount, in which if He would be fall down and worship He could gain all the kingdoms of the world.

They are mem bers of the Young Men's Christian as sociation and it was their first day of pleasure in their new home. Every minute of the day and until closing time in the evening there was a happy throng of boys about the building. The apparatus in the gymnasium and the swimming pool were in constant use. All of the lads declared they had en joyed one of the best times of their lives. But there was an awful ache in the legs and backs of these same young sters yesterday. Oh, me! Oh, my! How those muscles did ache. . There were absentees from Sunday School yester day morning and all because of the Y. M. C. A.

It was only the first time in for the boys and of course they felt extremely sore and tired when mother called them. But next Sunday they will awake promptly with the first bell and all be on hand. By that, time the soreness will have passed and the slender mus cles will begin to round out. It was an animated scene presented by the gymnasium when the eight lines of boys went through their exer cises. Director Horton had charge of the juniors and kept them busy. As sistant Director Brunson took them Into the swimming pool. The water was too cold for comfort, but it will be heated and in good condition from now on. The fire in the building got so low Friday night as to make it dif ficult to heat the water In time for the swimming squads Saturday morning. .75 c .35c In the Indianapolis Star yesterday the following war experience of Major M. M.' Lacey of Fountain City, who was with the Indiana delegation in its recent trip to Vicksburg batle field is related: Cannon of Stove Pipe. Major M. M. Lacey of Fountain City, one of the members of the com mission was the adjutant of the Sixty-n-inth Indiana, which was commanded by Lieutenant Colonel Oran Perry dur ing the assignment of Col. Bennett to other duty. Col. Perry, now Gen. PcrryJ and Maj. Lacey recalled many incidents in connection with the ser vice of their regiment which was in cluded in the expedition originally sent by General Grant to prepare a way for the army to cross the Missis sippi river south of Vicksburg. Maj Lacey pointed out to the other visitors the locality which forty-five years ago was James plantation. When the Six ty-ninth had proceeded that far into the enemy's country there appeared evidence one day that an attack would be made by confederates. Tne expe dition had no artillery, but a piece of stove pipe was obtained and was so ar ranged on the wheels of. a confiscated ox cart as to appear to be a cannon, and with the aid of breastworks for scenery the contrivance was sufficient to promote a wholesome respect in the minds of the confederates and no at tack was made. JESSUP TO ASSIST IN PROSECUTION Will Help Prosecutor Ladd With Criminal Cases. Until the criminal cases now on the docket of the Wayne circuit court are disposed of, Wilfred Jessup, retiring prosecuting attorney, will appear as assistant to Charles Ladd, the new prosecutor. A number of important criminal cases remain upon the dock et. Jessup is acquainted with the evi dence in each and his assistance to Ladd will be very valuable.

PRICES TO BE SAME Not Much Chance, Local Ice Rate Being Lowered This Year, NATURAL ICE IS SCARCE. Ice dealers of thecity, formed into a delivery combine, are of the opinion that prices current the past year will be in vogue during 3900. They feel that with the not very bright prospects for the natural , product that 'the price will not be lowered any.- Citizens will have to depend to a. great extent on the manufactured article. ' The winter up to date has been- too warm for the freezing of the ponds and river to such a depth as to make it profitable to harvest ice. Already It is rather late for the ice men to be gin to gather the natural product for good ice is usually secured about the holidays. The dealers believe that the winter will not be exceptional to the extreme that there will be no oppor tunity to gather ice, but feel that the supply of the natural product will be very limited.
