THE MORNIAQ OREGQNIAN, MONDAY, AT?GUST 26, 1907.
Her Greatest Happiness Lies
in Obedience, Says Dr.
Everett M. Hill.
RULED BY LOVE, NOT FORCE
Even More to Be Sought Is Submis
sion to Mastery of Jesus Christ,
Declares Pastor at, Taylor
"The Toung- Woman Who Found Her
Master" was the subject chosen by Rev.
Everett M. Hill for his sermon last night
at the Taylor Street Methodist Episco
pal church. He took for his text Luke
10:39. "Mary sat at Jesus" feet and heard
His word." He said that woman kind
Is happier if she finds her master, but
that the only obedience which any woman
should give to mortal man is the obe
dience which has been made a pleasure
by the compulsion of love. The sermon
in part was as follows:
Ws have all heard of a woman's reason.
It Is "because." Many would say that this
W not a reason, but I contend that it Is a
reason, and a very strong one. Some pro
found reasons cannot be formulated into
a logical argument sufficient to satisfy a
Judge, yet, though they are not capable of
expression In rational language, they are
unanswerable. Womankind mors often has
these silent, unspeakable proofs In her soul
than does man, and knowing that she has
not the power to give to another a logical
reason for her convictions shs says simply.
Life i.t greater than logic, and woman
kind lives nearer to both life and death
than does man. Life exists to live, and Its
streams must often cut their way through
devious and untried paths. 60 womankind
Is often eald by men to be Inconsistent.
Man is a reasoning animal, and reason Is
the mark of divinity In humanity. But
reason la not the dlvlnest thing, for "God
is love." Though the power of consecutive
deductions from a premise Is of measureless
value to the race It has tremendous limita
tions. Love never falleth. white men exalt
the mind, the fact will always obtain that
the heart sits on the throne.
The night has a thousand eyes.
The day but one.
But the light of the whole world dies
With the setting sun.
The mind has a thousand eyes.
The heart but one.
But the light of the whole life dies
When love is done.
The intellect l powerless to change a
man's nature, to make a criminal a good
cltlxen. to give peace of mind to the per
son tortured by remorse. This Is only
possible through the power of love. When,
therefore, we find those who have dis
covered some one who has the power of
love, even though there Is no reason to be
adduced for loving except the power, a dis
covery ha been made that Is more far
reaching than the power of gravitation and
more beneficial than the science of psy
chology. Whn Jesus was Invited to eat at the
home of Martha and Lazarus. Mary the
younger sister, was fascinated by the wond
rous words thst poured forth from the
Master's lips, and forgetting all about the
splendid repast which she and her sister
had planned, she sat at the Master's feet,
listening to the things that touched the
very center of her life. He entered into
her Inmost thoughts and spoke as though
he had always been familiar with them.
He traversed the paths of her nature as a
gardener does his well-worked garden,
pointing out the broken places in the fences,
and the weeds In the flower-beds, until
she bowed her. head In sorrow. But when
lie taught her how these things could be
remedied she lifted her head aud her fare
was illumined with the thought of the
change wrought In her life. She, who
nae been the belle of the neighborhood,
the netted one of the home, the leader
among the young people of her acquaint
ance, the very incarnation of Independence,
Is sitting at th- feet of the Master. It Is
a great change, but It has been brought
about naturally and easily by the great
love power of a master mind.
Every woman, to find her greatest use
fulness and blessedness, needs to find her
maBter. I am not saying that every woman
to be happy needs to marry, but I believe
'that the happiest marriages are those
where the man is master, and both the wife
and husband know It. but neither outwardly
recognize it. That man who marries a
1 woman and expects to make her obey him
!ln everything will And it a hard task.,
. Obedience from will and from love are two
airrerent things. 1 am always glad when
even I perform a wedding ceremony that
there Is no such word as obey In the serv
ice of our church. I do not believe in de
manding that a woman shall obey a man.
but r do believe in demanding that a
woman Is happier If she can feel that her
husband Is worthy of being obeyed by her,
and she does deep down in her heart, for
sweet love's sake, and not because he has
the power to compel her to do so.
The man who forces a woman to obey
him because he Is stronger than she, is no
higher than the brute beast. It is the strong
forcing obedience from the weak, and It Is
a sin. The compulsion of, love, which
makes obedience the choicest pleasure,, is
the only obedience a woman should give to
But the only way a woman will find
herself most perfectly haapy is through
finding her master In the person of Jesus
Christ. I have seen women-- whom I
felt would never be useful until their
hearts had been broken, but If anyone ex
cept Lord Jesus breaks the heart there Is
danger that not only the heart win be
broken but the spirit also. When the life
Is a wreck. Christ will hesl the broken
heart, and make it stronger than before. So
while the woman who finds a complement In
the person of a man whom she can love
is Indeed greatly blessed, yet if she never
finds such and will allow the mastery of
me person 01 jesus i:nrist sne will find
that her life will bloom and be blessed
as mortals have not thought possible. I
believe thoroughly in the union of two
humsn beings in love, but If for some 'rea
son that does not occur then be sure that
the union with the heart of Christ will
make the life as useful In another way.
It Is a fact of universal observation that
in the Christian religion there are more
women than men. The reason for this Is
that women are swerved not so much by
reason as by love. Women hava no Joy
In abstract principles and theories. Their
delight Is In the concrete, and especially
as manifested In human beings. As love
Is manifested in a person women find in
love their heaven without any thought of
whether it Is logical or consistent or accord
ing to custom. These last have no bearing
on the matter. Only the satisfaction of
the love life, the giving up of on.' self
to the domination of a person whose sway
Is love, is the glad desire of womankind.
PU. STRATOX BIDS FAREWELL
In Closing Sermon Pays Respects to
"Tongues of Fire" Sect.
Dr. John Roach Straton, who has been
occupying the pulpit of the White Temple
during Dr. Brougrher's absence in Los
Angeles, preached his farewell sermon
at the First Baptist Church here last
night. He expressed his appreciation for
the many courtesies shown him during
his visit, and said that h had greatly
enjoyed his trip to this wonderful
' Speaking on the subject of "Practical
Holiness." Dr. Straton eald that as a
passport Into heaven he would rather
trust the happy smile worn by Dr.
Brougher than the long-faced gloom of
a claimant to sinless perfection. He took
a shot at the new sect which claims that
its adherents talk with "other tongues,"
saying that "the gift of tongues," the
claim to which Is often made by those
who say they are sinlessly perfect. Is
misunderstood b many,, today. ,T1U YcJrorsvcrmora.'

close of the Pentecostal week at Jeru

places, before there uad been time tor

different languages of the earth. Of
those who were gathered In Jerusalem
and cosmopolitan Corinth each received
instruction in Christian truths in his own
"The gift of tongues was not a sense
less babble, that no one can understand,
to be Jabbered at any time that we may
be moved by some misguided Impulse,
but it Is the operation of the Holy Spirit
for a specific purpose to give the truth
of' the Qospel to those who could not
otherwise understand it; and the Epistle
to the Corinthians makes perfectly plain
that in Corinth this gift was abused and
led to fanaticism, and Paul rebukes it.
The same thing Is true today. Many oX
these holy things that- are used by the
Spirit of God for good are taken by Satan
and used for confusion and error."
Dr. Straton leaves this morning for
Chicago. After a visit of a few days
he will go to Baltimore, Md., where he
will take up his new duties as pastor of
the Seventh Baptist Church. Until re
cently Dr. Straton was pastor of the Sec

SERMON ON BANK FAILURE
PASTOR WOULiD HAVE MODEL
SAVINGS INSTITUTION". .
Rev. James D. Corb Says Portland
Should Follow Plan Whereby
Profits, go to Depositors!
As a prelude to his sermon at "the
Unlversallst Church of the Good Tid
ings, on East Eighth street, yesterday
morning. Rev. James D. Corby said:
"One of our city banks closed its
doors last week, catching- various mem
bers of this congregation and, to my
surprise, I learn that there is not a
savings banks in the City of Portland
run for the people and not for private
profit. This is not in keeping with the
progressive eplrlt of our city, and is
unworthy of the New York of the Pa
cific. "In the Empire State, savings banks
are philanthropic Institutions, designed
to assist the wage-earner to save, and
safe-guarding his deposits beyond the
possibility of loss. The charter is
granted to a group of men who desire
to serve their fellows. The Btate bank
ing law prescribes the kind of securi
ties in which these funds may be in
vested namely, in bondes and mort
gages and in certain railway bonds of
a non-speculative character. Any prof

not for personal profit, but virtually
donate their skill at the various board
meetings to investing the money of
the poor in these safe securities ap
proved by the state banking law, thus
earning Interest for those who could
not otherwise Invest their email
"Is not the time ripe for the organ
ization of such an institution in our
city? Could we not anticipate the law
and follow the plan which is so suc
cessful in the East? The pitiful dis
tress of those whose little all Is tied
up by the cloeed doors shows the im
perative need for such a bank, where
the depositor is assured of his money
being Invested in stable and approved
securities. As practically every bank
In town has Its savings department,
it must be quite profitable to pay 34
or 4 per cent on deposits while loans
are made at from to 12 per cent.
"Wonderful and visionary as it may
seem, I verily believe there are a score
of men In this beautiful city capable
and willing to devote their time and
experience to launching this greatly
needed institution without hope or ex
pectation of personal profit."
Following the prelude to the sermon,
Mr. Corbey took up the regular topic
of the morning, which was "Some
Helps to Happiness."
JOYS LIE WITHIN CHURCH
SINFUL PLEASURES FliEETIXG,
SAYS DR. WILSON.
Pastor of Grace Church Tells Con
gregation, "How to Be Happy y
Dr. Clarence True Wilson, of th&
Grace Methodist Church, told his con
gregation last night "How to Be Happy
Though Religious He took for his
text, "The joy of the Lord is thy
strength." He said In part:
There are people who are inclined to
think that there is no joy in the Lord, but
that all life's joys must come from sources
of an opposite character. They think there
Is joy In the wine cup, In the dance, in
the social whirl and In Irregular living, but
fall to see pleasure in a Godly life. Hap
piness In a legitimate pursuit for all. The
avolance of pain and the seeking of
pleasure is to be commended and never
condemned. If condemnation comes In con
nection with It, it is for seeking those
things in the wrong way.
The emotional nature is implanted by the
Deity. Its normal means of expression Is
through excitement. Men flee from monot
ony and hate stagnation. They love the
tingling of excited nerves, and the throb
bing of the quickening heartbeat. The
religion of Jesus Christ proposes to meet
this craving for human happiness, to fill
the mind with pleasure and to stimulate
emotional joy. This wag the meaning of
Paul when he eald, "Be not 'drunken with
wine wherein Is riot, but be filled with the
spirit, speaking one with another In psalms,
and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and
making melody in your hearts unto God."
The intimation Is that he who goes to the
wine cup for pleasure is on the wrong trail
for permanent peace, and that the Holy
Spirit la a natural stimulus to every human
spirit. Therefore, those who think that
religion should be stripped of all emotion
would clip the wlnga of Christianity.
The early church was borne to its orig
inal triumphs pn the pinions of holy song
and exultant religious emotion. Once In
a while you see a Christian who acts as
if his religion didn't agree with him. His
face suggests a funeral. You might sup
pose that his Father in heaven had died
and didn't leave him anything. But long
faced Christianity is not the true repre
sentative of the religion of him who said,
"My peace I give unto you, that your Joy
may be full."
I have found that the more thoroughly
Christian we become the more rapid our
increase in happiness, and that a genuine
religious lire brings into play the health
ful activities of the body, the normal work
ings of the mind and the robust service of
the soul. The healthy religious life will
not interfere with the normal workings of
the Joys of the triune man.
See by contrast how those who llvt a
life of sinful pleasure find the reaction
that sets in after every, day's enjoyment
or night's carousal. See the harvest of
broken promises and disappointed lives, the
bitter corroding regrets that follow a life
of sin. and tell me if wickedness does not
destroy more Joys than it creates, and If
the few joys it does create are not exceed
ingly short-lived. The God who is the
father of our spirits has so constructed the
soul and the universe, its home, that right
Ulng harmonizes the oul with its God, Its
conscience, and its environment. Of him
we can say. "In thy presence Is fulness of
joy. and at thy right hand are pleasures
KEEPS FEAST M
Mary's Church Honors
OBSERVES ITS NATAL DAY
During Twenty Tears Since Its
Founding Parish Has Grown to
S00 Members and Main-
tains Club and School.
St. Mary's Church, Alblna, celebrated
the feast of Its patron taint and also
observed Its 20th anniversary yesterday.
The church had been handsomely dec
orated for the occasion, and every seat
was occupied. Archbishop , Christie offi
ciated, in honor of the Important oc
casion, but did not take part In the
solemn high mass that was celebrated at
the morning service. Rev. Father Daly,
the pa3tor. had general charge of the ser
vices, assisted by Fathers Black, OUvottl
and other priests of the city. Special
music was provided for the occasion.
Father Black, of St. Francis Church,
delivered the sermon, which was eloquent
and commanded close attention. Eloquent
tributes were paid to the patron saint
of the church, and the memory of Father
The speaker also refered to Bishop
O'Reilly. Bishop of Baker City, and former
pastor of the church, wTio did so much
to build up the parish before his promo
tion to the high position of bishop.
For the past 20 years the church and
parish have made rapid progress. When
founded the church was surrounded with
a forest which has given way to the
growth of the city. The small church
was replaced by - the present edtflca in
1888, and which was dedicated with solemn
ceremony in 1894. In connection with the
church St. Mary's school was -founded
and opened September 4, 1888, by Sister
Mary Alberta, O. S. D., assisted by Sister
Mary Emlla. A new building was erected
and the work of Christian education has
progressed on a large scale by the Domi
nican Staters. Last year a high school
was added to the educational facilities of
the parish, the total enrollment being 326.
The Catholio Toung Men's Club, another
organization of importance started last
year, has a clubhouse under way that
will cost $15,000. The club has the ap
proval ' of Archbishop Christie and the
hearty indorsement and support of many
-citizens of Albina. It will be completed
this Fall and become one of the most
Important organizations in connection
with the church. The Holy Cross parish
at University Park, where a new church
was recently erected and a school pro
jected, and the parish at Piedmont, were
both under the charge of St. Mary's
parish for several years, but have now
St. Mary's Church has a membership
of 600. It was founded by SO Catholic
families that fathered at the home of
John Kelly, December, 1888. The outlook
for the parish for larger work Is excel
lent. It now owns nearly a whole block
at Stanton street and Williams avenue.
The large growth of the parish was
due largely to Rev. G. B. Van Lin, the
first pastor, and Bishop J. C. O'Reilly,
the second pastor, Father Van Lin died
In 1894. He was a cultured man and a
model priest. Although never robust he
devoted untiring energy to the parish.
Father O'Reilly, became pastor when a
younr , man, but his work Is well re
membered. Father Daly, the present
pastor, is a worthy successor of these
devoted men. He has carried on the work
they started with marked success and Is
respected by non-Catholics as well as
SYMPOSIUM OX SPIRITUALISM
Five Speakers Present Different
Phases of Belief.
The symposium on Spiritualism, last
night at the First Spiritual Society, Ar
tisans' Hall, was participated in by five
Mrs. Congdon presented the phenomenal
side. She said that many are apt to
make light of the raps, table tipping and
the phenomena classed under the head of
"physical" as trivial spiritual forces.
Nothing is trivial in Spiritualism, she
said. The Inception of all new movements
commences with the minute, and without
It all the other evolutions of growth
would be impossible. The spirit rap Is of
far more Importance than the telegraph,
she concluded, for it assures us that the
individual man still lives after death.
H. B. Campbell contrasted modern
Spiritualism with the ancient Spiritual
ism of the Bible, and said that they were
identical. "The hand that wrote on the
wall before the prophet-medium Daniel,
the deliverance of Peter from prison by
a spirit, the conversation that Jesus held
with the spirits of Moses and Ellas on
the Mount, the vLslon of Paul on his way
to Damascus, have all been duplicated In
the modern world." he said. "No'hlng
more startling happened In ancient times
than Is now taking place In Australia, in
the circles being held by T. Stanford, a
brother of the late Senator Leland Stan
ford, of California, with the medium
F. Coulter treated the subject from the
jnental point of view. He said in part:
"It Is an error to suppose that one can
realize spirit througfi the intellect or the
senses. This is a mistake. A man must
first realize his own spirit before he can
realize other spirits. What we mostly
now realize is the physical body and the
Intellect. One's spiritual nature can only
be realized through the affections! nature

dom of heaven within us. This Is the
door through which angels manifest their
Professor Taylor discussed the scientific
side. He stated that every law in the
universe spiritual, mental and physlclal
"If this were not so," he continued,
"our faith would be In vain, for we could
reckon on no side of life being stable.
Every new movement went through three
phases: first, indifference, then ridicule,
and finally acceptance. The leading
scientists of the world are now In the
last phase in relation to Spiritualism.
But Spiritualism was Just as scientific as
it is now before the scientists accepted It."
E. de Toung presented the spiritual side.
He said that there was in reality only one
side to Spiritualism and that was the
spiritual point of view:
"Spiritual things are spiritually dis
cerned," he said. "But men in various
stages of mental and physical evolution
can only be aroused to cultivate their
spiritual natures by that which appeals
to the phase of being they realize. The
physical and mental, phenomena of"
Spiritualism serve as means to that end."

A MAN invests his money

3 per cent on his money. A

get 6 per cent to 7 per cent.
Some men prefer to use all
they make in their business,

to 100 per cent. These are
all excellent ways of invest
ment and probably as safe as
could be desired. Has it oc
curred to you, however, that
the richest men in Portland
are the heaviest property
owners? It is not untrue to
state that there are men who
have made as high as 1000
per cent on their realty in
vestments. Where they have
a large sum of money at their
command, they may be able
to take advantage of condi
tions that others could not

sition, you will make far

almost any other source. See
