Va., July 25.—Bicy clists here are in very bad humor on account on an occourrence Friday night. During the evening those who were out riding on their wheels were considerably annoyed by the frequency with which their tires were punctured, but nothing unusual was thought of it until this morning, when some of the wheelmen were out and one of them having his tire punctured examined it and found a carpet tack sticking in the tire. This aroused suspicion and an examination of the streets over which most of the bicycling is done disclosed the fact that some miscreant had de liberately distributed several boxes of tacks along the thoroughfare. Two of the men started to nick up I some of the tacks, thinking it was an accident, and that some one had evi dently lost a broken box of the little tire destroyers, but on examination It was found' that there were tacks the full length of the street. Main street alone was not the only one visited by the fiend, but Wells street, and several of the side streets had received a lib eral supply of tacks. An effort is be l ing made to discover the perpetrator of I this outrage, and if found It Is likely* the atmosphere will be made a little toow arm for comfort. SWAM THE CHANNEL. London. July 25.—Peter McNally, the Boston swimmer, who was sched uled to make an attempt to swim the English channel on July 4th, tele graphed to the Associated Press to-day from Calais that he made the crossing yesterday. He says that he started from Dover at 11:30 o’clock yesterday morning and was in the water fifteen hours, in which he covered 35 miles. He landed at 2:30 o’clock this morning at a point three miles from Cape Griz I peg. _ On the “Fatherdood of Good and the Brotherhood of Man” Preached at the Third Presbyterian Church Last Night—An Interest ing Discourse of a Thoughtful and Practic il Nature, on a Timely Tbfftie — Wagon. Other Sunday Servicesin~%cfle'’ Churches. At the Third Presbyterian church, last night, the Rev. R. R. Bigger, the pastor, preached an eloquent and thoughtful discourse op “The Brother hood of God and the Fatherhood of Man." He took his text from Matt. 6:9—"Our Father which art in Heaven." He said there is much said in these times about the fatherhood of God and the brotherhood of man. These truths are as old as the Gospel itself, but are being emphasized by the press and pulpit more now* than ever before. When materialistic science seems de termined to prove we are children of gorillas, the fatherhood of God cannot be made too emphatic. We are not base born. We are sons of the eter nal. The text teaches the universal fath erhood of God. When God's finger, dipped in blood, writes the word “our ’ on a man's heart, it blots out the heathenism of caste. We may draw our robes of pride out of the mud of general humanity, and say, “Bless us Father, and all people equally re spectable." but that is not Christin ity. The spirit of fraternity lies at the bottom of all religious experience. The teachings of Christ are that God is our father, and every man our brother. God being our father, should be honored and trusted. There is over much false shame in the family of God, which His children extenuate by call ing it reserve. Many would be asham ed to be discovered on their knees, even by their own household. The true child of God will want to look up into the Father’s face in prayer. The world is full of people who are “so tired.” The burdens of life are varied, numerous and heavy. Some expect to find rest in pleasure, others in fame, many in wealth. They are forgetful of the only source of rest. If man only knew, he Is tired for father, for the Heavenly Father. We should approach our Heavenly Father with all reverence. The fact that God is in Heaven should impress our minds very deeply with his high ness and holiness. God is our father. He comes from Heaven to encourage confidence; but still He is our Father in Heaven; He claims our reverence as well as our confidence. We are not to talk to Him as though He were a man, nor take his glorious name into our lips with a profane familiarity. If God is in Heaven, and reveals Himself there to the whole family that bears His name, then Heaven is our inherit ance. If we are sons, then we are heirs, heirs of God and joint heirs of Jesus Christ. What will He bestow upon His children if not a permission to come home and share the abund ance of His house? How precious is the thought that he who taught us the prayer of which the text is the first sentence, before He ascended to His Father and our Father, promised to come again, and receive us unto Him self. AT THE BRIDGE PARK. On account of the extreme heat the congregation of the Thomson M. E. church, on the Island, held an open air service last evening at the bridge park. It proved a popular movement, as the congregation was much larger than it would have been at an Indoor meeting. The services were of the usual nature, and were very interest ing. It is probable that the open air meetings will be continued during the summer, weather permitting. -o--— Everybody is invited to attend the special turtle soup and game lunch at mv place in Fulton Tuesday evening.
