Rev. 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

Saturday marked an epoch in the
lives of 300 local boys. They are mem

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

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
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.

Not Much Chance, Local Ice

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

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
