\ Declares Stage Today Worse Than It Was in Period Before Christ. RT. REV. JOHN M. FARLEY DEPLORES THEATRE VOGUE Asserts that Older People Are Leading Younger Ones into Wicked Influences. _ TSpecial to the. Evening Slar.l NEW YOltK, Feb. 8.— “The stage is worse today than it was in the days of paganism,” said Archbishop Farley in his sermon in St. Patrick’s Cathedral yesterday. He preached on the influ ence of bad example, and deplored the, habits of older men and women who inspired the youth to follow their lead. "We see today men and women—old men and old women—who ought to know better, bringing the young to these* orgies o^ obscenity," he said. '‘Instead of that they should be exer cising a supervision over the young and should look carefully after their companionship.” The archbishop took for his text ’.he words concluding the morning Gospel, ‘ Many are called, but few are chosen," and he gave an interpretation of me sentence that differed somewhat from the old accepted meaning. "It is a warning and not a menace," exclaimed the archbishop. "It is not intended to drive to despair, but to in spire to love. While love is a strong *! motive for man’s faith, he, neverthe less, requires the spur of fear to keep him in thy right path. , "The old preachers taught us that we must work out our destiny in fear and trembling,” he continued. "They wanted us to bdlieve that we must live undo tiled, if we are to be saved. But where are we to find any who have lived in accordance with the precepts of God? All about us we have the men and •women who are setting evil examples. . Men hoary with age are often found inspiring with evil the minds of the young. They go to the public places and to the theatres in shamelessness and they bring with them youngsters who cannot escape corruption.” > T. A. Cox Abducted in San Fran cisco and Taken to. Puget Spuud. TACOMA, Wash., Feb. S._The strange disappearance of T. A. Cox, general manager of tiic Arizona and Pittsburg Alining and Smelting Com pany, Tucson, Arizona, was partly cleared up late last night, when he walked into Tacoma from Pug t Sound after having been absent from home since December hi last. While very reticent as to tlie de tails, Mr. Cox alleges that he we shanghaied from tire port of San Fran cisco December 20 and that Ins abduc tors placed him aboard a straw* ship, robbed him of his Jewelry ami . c, i in • money and that lie wa: turned adrift Thursday.

Monan, district attorney of Suffolk county, Is dead in Phoenix, Arlz., where he went for his health. Moran first gained national promi nence when, in 1906, he was elected dis trict attorney of Boston, despite the united opposition of the city’s entire bar and the newspapers. lie ran the campaign himself, and was tlie sole speaker. In his light for reelcction, in 1907, charges of corruption were made against him. He was, however, re elected over the opposition of the Re publican party and a faction of the Democrats. He left Boston, ill with tuberculosis, in June, 1908. In 1906 lie ran for Governor on four tickets, as Dc mocrat,'Prohibitionist, In dependence Leaguer and Citizen, and lost the election to Curtis Guild,, jr,. Republican, only by u narrow' margin. In the campaign for Governor he sum marily discharged his three managers and conducted his campaign alone. Nominally a Democrat, Moran re fiised to support Bryan in the recent presidential campaign, and allied him self with tlie Independence League. He was 50 years old. and unmarried. oJ Bin; Means Resump* icon of Hostilities. r< l,'I to t!i» ti*.I'lilng Star-l OHICA.i;', Cob. x.—A few days ago, when the Russian government lioateil a loan fat .'p2fO,Ot r.''

RED BANK. Feh. 8.—With this arith metical problem Mrs. George W. Ap plegate’s hen concerns herself not at all. This industrious and remunera tive lun simply goes on laying eggs. Since December .8 last this cornucopia hen has laid 130 eggs. Although she has beaten all records, she is modest and retiring and emitted not even a cackle yesterday.

Just the age when a j man should look and be at his best. :! After healthy, happy boyhood he went i to Princeton, where he was by no means at the foot of his class. He i graduated in 1890, and embarked at j once on the financial career that has i made many of his associates gasp, so j successfully daring, or daringly sue- , cessful has he been. In 1891 he married Miss Florence Os- ! borne Jennings, of Orange, well known i to society people of the Oranges and j this city. Since then he has always | lived In the neighborhood of Peapack, | Blairsvllle, and other parts of North ! Jersey. He and his wife figure prom- ] inently in most of the functions of the i exclusive social sets of New York and j Washington. His fortune embraces j more little round "noughts” and figures i than most men would acquire In two ! or three lifetimes. , Truly, Senators Kean and Briggs, j whose privilege it was to choose the ' j "handsomest man in Jersey for the i great inaugural ball,” chose well. Whojj can suggest a better qualified man j than C. Ledyard Blair? “Nobody, says each man to hi si neighbor in a loud, positive voice, even • though, In the privacy of his room, no ; stands before his mirror and says, "Oh, j well, now If they'd only—” Hail to our handsomest, C.

It is a reasonable supposition that all of these gentlemen have plenty of , funds with which to pay their fare to I this city and hire a hack on the night of the ball. Many of them are known to be well supplied in that regard. Mr. Denegre, who will represent Louisiana, is wealthy, owning the Times-Democrnt, a prosperous newspa per. Myron T. Herrick is ex-governor of Ohio, a banker and millionaire. He is classed as a cabinet possibility. Mr. Nagel, of Missouri, is another leading cabinet guess. He is close tip to the millionaire mark. As nn offset . to any possible shortage he is other wise exceptionally qualified for the con test. :. Young Wadsworth, of New York, is the son of his father, and the family has nothing but money. General Angus, of Maryland, owns the Baltimore American, and is a man of great wealth. Colonel Sehoonmaker. of Pennsyl vania, is an intimate friend of Senator | Knox. He is the president of it railroad J and can probably arrange for courtesy £ transportation if he goes broke. Mr. Hale, of Maine, is a son of Sena- £ tor Eugene |Hale., He is now an assist- f ant secretary of state and has- spent | years hobnobbing with social experts a broad. Mr. Anderson. District of Columbia, is I a man of unlimited means. He lives in * a milllon-dollar residence here. Red Bank. Mrs. Applegate was as- | founded to find twelve eggs in tile hen's nest lost Thur iy sundown.jp Mrs, Applegate, gasping, stared at the f hen; the hen looked at Mrs. Applegate, \ as if saying, “I’m rather fruitful, eh?” i v Mrs. Applegate began to laugh and she j laughed until she cried. Then, ladgh- l \ Ing and crying alternately, she got hys- q terlcal and her family called In I>r. j Sayre, who quieted her with bromides r of sidium and potassium. No nervous collapse threatens the hen. She preserved her mental poise and, attending to business strictly, laid seven more eggs during Thursday | t night.
