Under the above caption, the Den ver itepublican hod the following timely editorial in a recent issun: “A miniHter by tin* name of Fulton In the city of Syracuse, New York, has been indulging of late in antics of variouH doacriptionH. To get evi dence against gambler*, he visited two gambling joints and lost three dollars in each of them by means of a game of poker. One wonders if the minister would have been as indig nant if he had won three dollars in each joint instead of losing it. One is further led to wondof why so vir tuous a man as the minister is sup posed to be ever learned to play poker. Another wonder that may arise in the shape of a query is, with whom did he associate to learn the game? Perhaps the title of one of his re cent sermons may throw some light both upon his psychological processes and general character. The subject was, “Gee, ’Ain’t it Hell to Be Poor!” We say that tills title of a sermon may throw some light. Rather should we boldly declare that it does. “Seems,’ madam,” says Ham let to his mother, “nay, it is, I know' not ’seems. And any minister who would preach a sermon entitled, “Gee, *Aint it Hell to Be Poor!” has given himself away. He has revealed that he Is a disgrace to his sacred of fice. Such a minister has no mes sage for his age, he' has no message for any decent, self-respecting indiv idual of the time, He talks just as one might expect a crook to talk. A who will use such language m* Either a fool or he Is a crook. To get him out of the ministry as quick ly as possible should be the task of his parishioners and everyone else who belongs to his denomination. We regret, however, to say, that sensational preaching is becoming only too common in our time. The masses having turned from the church and the old dogmas, a certain type of minister endeavors to bring them back by stooping to employ vulgar words and to proclaim vulgar thoughts. In the long run, however, a minister of this type always dis covers that he has made a mistake, for no matter how vulgar a man may he, he does not respect vulgarity in men who are not supposed to be vul gar. Sensational preachers often at tract large audiences for a time, but they make no impression upon their auditors. The people laugh, and quickly proolaim the minister a fake. It is our belief that any minister who lias a genuine message will be listened to with respect, even though ho may not be very learned in science of the higher crittiolsms. When Dr. Peabody preached in his latter days every deep student was painfully aware of the wide gulf between the conservatism of Dr. Peabody and modern knowledge; nevertheless, everyone felt that it was his duty to go and listen to the dear old man, because everyone knew that he was as truly a saint as any who have been so designated, a man whose every thought seemed to he given to the cause of human service both in its collective nnd individual aspects. A minister ought to be a learned man, hut his first essential is nobility of character. No matter how con servative he may be, no matter how little he may appreciate or under stand modern jdeas and discoveries, his character will carry with it a certain contagion that makes for righteousness, and even the most debased will treat him with respect, when they know his quality. But the sensational preacher is the man without character, just as a criminal when analysed, is found to be a man without character. A sensat ional preacher is not very far remov ed from the criminal class in spirit, as is evident from the fact that preachers who disgrace their calling arc almost invariably found to have been sensationalists in the pulpit. The Denver Times calls attention to the tax roll of that county and ■hows that there is not a millionaire in the town. The publication of the tax list of Denver would be a great education to the people. In Chicago the annual publication of the tax l|st is the most interesting piece of liter ature that they have to furnish. It is said to be the greatest equaliser and everybody gets a square deal be cause of its publication.—Glenwood Avalanche. Several leading Republican papers of Colorado are emphatic In their protests against the proposed candid acy of one Simon Guggenheim, for the United States senate. Who is Simon Guggenheim? Of course the Glenwood Post favors him—because of the “barrel.”—Rifle Reveille. We trust that Representative J. Warren Keifer, will pause long enough In his efforts to reduce the representation from the Southern States on account of their alleged treatment of the negro, to read the very exciting news that was sent over the wires from Springfield, Ohio, a few days ago. Washington gossips intermafees that Senator Patterson will be a Re publican by the time the next senat orial contest is on. That would be a “horse” on the G. O. P.‘ The Roosevelt Party will never steal a governorship or deport men on a special train. —Granby Advocate. A Student of the French Celt. Anatole Le Braz is by origin and early experience himself a true Celt of Brittany. Among them he has grown up, speaking their language, thinkiug their thoughts, dreaming their dreams. It is because of this that, studying the Celtic people, he has been able to do so, not by obser vation only, but by that most intim ate of all methods, the study of traits spontaneous in himself, using his trained intelligence and his remark able talent to penetrate the character istics and peculiar gifts of his own authenic Breton nature. That which an outsider would carefully observe and laboriously note down, Le Bras himself actually is; and therefore, when most free, most uncouclous, most inspired, he is most truly Bre ton. Shy and secretive, the Breton is like the inountiiin in his own le gend which opened once in every hundred years, and then only when the twelve strokes of midnight sound ed. The stranger never enters. But to Le Bras the humblest peasants open their hearts and reveal their dreams, for he is a brother—familiar Indeed, will) the strange and distant outer world of France, but truly at one with them, sharing their visions, loving their beliefs. Thus he has become their mouthpiece, the rep resentative man of their race in France.—From “Anatole Le Braz, a Representative Celt of France,” by Carroll Dunham, in the American Monthly Review of Reviews for March.
