The pulpit of the Eastern Presbyterian Church wnsoccupiedjesterday by thepastor, Rtv. Thomas Cbalmers Ea6ton, D. D. He took as his theme for the evening discounse, "The Christian's Race." Among other things Dr. Easton eaid: The figure employed is excellent. The racing idea applied to the Christian's life carries us in imagination back to the ancient days when the Olympic games were a prominent feature in the institutions of the then known world. Unlike other races where only one can be victor, in the Christian race every one who touches the goal receives the laurel crown. The starting point is conversion and until wc touch the golden gate we are speeding along tho course. The prize is eternal life in heaven, the canopy of the saints and joy forcvermore. The first thought suggested by my theme is the necessity of always being in training, rigid and seiere. Many break down from lack of training and a greater number are drawn aside from the pursuit of the palm by distracting influences. From this wo must learn to keep holy the body and to preserve it intact as a piece of God's handi work should be kept. The aim of the Oljmpic sprinter was to secure the bubble reputation, and, if successful, Tiis name was chanted, he was brought in honor to his native citj through a break in the wall md the laurel wreath placed upon his brow. All of this is earthly and fleeting. It nu6t of necessity pass away with the march of time, but the Christian runner competes for a seat m the heavenly home and never djing fame. In athletic sports nothing Is worn that wjll impede the use of the limbs The Christian should not tarry any weight of sin, but as free as the morning lot him fly oier the course. You cannot fail Jf you run as the Master directs in His blessed word. You will be sure to gain the toal at last and the crown will be placed on jourboadbytbeplercedhandot theSaviour.

Eianiple4 This Century Furnishes of Cruelty to Dogs and Birds Nn, poh'on Compared TJ nfuA orably. The humanitarians. antl-viisoctlonlsts, and, in fact, almost all of the friends of dumb animals in the District, Terc present yesterday morning at the Vermont Avenue Christian Church to hear tha Rev. r. D. Fotvcj, preach on "God's Glory in the Beastsof the Field." Tills is a subject dear to the heart of the able pastor, and he waxed more elo quent than usual. Tho Fermon was an nounced to be for the benefit of the Hu mane Society of the city. He said in part: "Could tberc be an j thing more cruel, shameful or unjust than Uie ill-treatment of the noble horse or the affectionate dog, such as is been in the streets of our elty every daj? It was once feared in a Euro pean city that all of the dogs in the vicinity would go mad, and tuedreadedhjdrophobiu. become broadcast among the citizens. By the enactment of an ordinance the citizens were empowered to carry large pointed sticks with which they were to impale every dog thoy met. "On the banks of the Danube a peasant threw this weapon at a dog, but with pooraim.and the heavy wooden spear went Into the water. The animal, true to Its training and iustinct, plunged in, brought it back and laid it at the man's feet. EVEN IN OUR CENTURY. "Theinhuman monster immediate! j seized it and dashed out the poor creature's brains. This was even in our eentury. "What would the Athenians luwe done with this man, when they disgraced and imprisoned one of their magistrates who dabtied down a little bird that had sought refuge In hisbosom? "Can any man be cruel to animals who goes out in the fields in, the morning and hears the birds singing sweetly, the cows musically lowing, and a thousand minute creatures chirping in the grass at his feet? One day a lad and his sister while walking in the woods found a nest of joung birds, and In spite of the girl's tears and entreaties, the boy dasiied out the brains of the little feathered beings on the stones. Some jears after that sister sat by her brother's side crjing and prajmg, and every momeut expect ing the coming of the procession which was to lead the joung man forth to the scaffold. He said to the girl: 'Sister, do jou remember the time I killed those joung birds? I think from that hour God deserted me and Iert me to my own In clinations, and if I had spared them I am certain that I would not be to-day a con demned man ' Is it not true ol overy man standing in the presence of his God that be have mercy on all dumb animals ? """" There was a great discussion in the six teenth century about a certain man who was leading a pig by a rope as to whether the leading or the led animal was the hog. I do not know to what conclusion they ar rived, but I am certain to-day that they are animals full of bristlps which exhibit more human traits than some men and that some animals w 1th breeches deserve the name of tho hog. "Tii" man. Napoleon Bonaparte, who now fills our magazine and shares, with Trilby, the admiration and worship of a host of people, commonly thought to be sane, comes within this category. He was a vile brutal butcher of men. One, who, as a French historian tells us, was pompous when he tried to be proud and vulgar when he tried to be silly. Macauley in comparing Caesar and Napoleon says that Caesar, m one respect was pre-eminently superior to the Corsican in that he was a perfect gentleman. NAPOLEON'S EVIL CAREER. Talleyrand laments that so great a man as Napoleon showed such bad training and evil bringing-up. The great aguostlc and anthropologist, Huxley, in his dissertations upon the Darwinian theory admits that there is a great gulf between man and the lower ani mals. Yet the baser formsofcreation have a eort of consciousness, a sense of right and wrong. They exhibit a certain sense of con trivance and can adopt means to an end, while of their loe, devotion and fidelity we have all seen samples. The elephants in Ceylon are taught to build walls. The horse knows enough to turn to the meeting house on Sunday and to the road which leads to the place of business on the other six days of the week. "When I was a preacher in the country I had a little pony who never failed to stop beforo a church, while a saloon he fairly shunned. The only trouble was that he did not have a sense of discernment of the denomina tions. "Many great philosophers and theologians, even "Wesley himself, have firmly believed in the immortality of the souls of animals. Thousands of the feathered songsters of our forests aro yearly slaughtered to adorn the hats of luxurious women, while dogs, cats and guinea-pigs arc daily made to undergo tortures in comparison with which those of tho Inquisition fall and are as nothing. This is done by human mon sters in tho name of science. Along our Etreet you can see thcnoble beast of burden goaded and driven todeath by heartless human beings, who deserve the name of devils. If jou desire to honor and please your Maker be kind and considerate of the beasts of the field, for in these does God glory." e SICKNESS IS A BLESSING. Rev. Dr. Todd Describes the Mission of Pnin to IHh Consrregntlon. "The Mission of Sickness" was thesubject of "Rev. E. S. Todd's discourse at the Ham line M. E. Church jesterday morning. He spoke from the ninth chapter of John, the first threo verses, saying in part: "One of tho ways in which sickness is made a blessing is that it is a kind of police officer to warn us against doing wrong. It is constantly saying, if
