' Rev. E. t House at the First Congre
gational church last evening considered
f the elevation of the world, 'A World of
; v Power" being his theme. n part - he
: "A world to be upliftedthis is the
Droblem. Where Is the leverage equal
to the emergency? To be weak is to be
miserable; Men are anxious to be rich
Women are anxious to shine In tne social
world. Why? .Because, they want
, ' power, i The desire for power is natural.
It need not be a selfish passion. The
King 1s the man who can. . s " '
; "Nature Is full of power. One cubic
inch of ether contains five hundred horse
power. A scientific Investigator -y sug
gests the possibility" of -using a-metal
mirror, to defeat any enemy. His idea
ii to have the mirror direct an invisible
Heriian ray right, througn a warship's
armored, sides into the magastne and ex
plode it. A bit of radium enclosed in
a lead box, an inch thick emits rays
that are as perceptible as. a-HaBh of
' light Jon the retina. But the world is
till packed with undiscovered power.
The world is a great dynamo, and power
beyond ..measurement is in full play
beneath, aboye and around us ---:
"Now,,, are we to suppose that . God,
who furnishes the universe with such
power, leaves the church without power?
Thertfare spiritual Torees even greater
than material forces about us. . This
Bible is a record of things impossible
, .' to men. . It tella of seas divided until
' a nation goes through dry shod. It tells
of a fire out of heaven licking up water;
of, storms stilled; of the world turned
upside down that it might be turned
right side up. This, power Is ours to
use. How shall we use it? i' '
' "First, there must be the generation
, . of power. If a man wants to get hold
of the great powers of the world. It must
be done by the appropriation of power
by which it Is surrounded. Man left
to himself Is weak. But when he har
. nesses . his wheels to water, . and his
wires to electricity, he becomes strong.
Men can generate mental and physical
powers by using his mind and body ac
cording to certain laws. How shall we
generate spiritual power? 'My soul wait
thou only upon Ood.' This is the place.
It is the open scandal of Christendom
that it does not wait upon Ood. .The
Lord only gets a fraction of a man. The
man who' throws himself entirely into
the church is one man picked out of
' ten thousand. Men speak of ' coming
Into the church. As a rule taey do not
come In. They send In their- names.
But what are namos In the task of re
deeming society? Others, send . their
money. But what Is gold in Introducing
new Pentecost3? The church must gen
erate power by its members waiting
upon God. "
"Second, there must be a distribution
of power. When a man becomes a true
Christian he holds in his hands the
power of God, and the question comes to
' him, What shall I do with this power?"
. Use It right where you are. The distri
bution of the Christian life. is needed in
every profession and occupation.' : Stand
for -something. Truth munt - be Incar

sorrow? to Station Officer John A. Golts
I laat Saturday afternoon, but the police
man was quite a while in getting the
troubled man to tell the cause of the
woe.' Fooney had paid a north end shoe
dealer 120.28 for a pair of rubbers.
"I never did suclt a thing before.'
said Fooney, as he began to tell hfs tale
of woe. "You see, this is Saturday, and
I drew 22 pay. Had two silver dol
lars and a 120 gold piece a Jingling In
my pocket, when I noticed that my feet
might get wet if I Bidn't over 'em with
rubbers. Went Into a place and saw
this pair I hare on. The fellow wanted
12 tor them,' out I talked him down to
11.26. r,, ,

adding that the trouble was of a nature
that caused him both 'the heartburn and
the headache. Fooney . was-telllng-hls

a thing before," he said.
"Do tell." Saia Golti, as Acting-Captain
Quinlan began to get very much In

We. "I had the money In one pocket,
and alt"of "them felt Just the same. I
thought I was pulling out the two silver
pieces .when I paid - for the overshoes,
but I had the twenty and a dollar. The
man handed me back 7S ' cents, and
smiled so dim nice when he said 'Thank
you, come In some more.'
"When I got up street far enough to
wet the new overshoes I discovered
Just what a fool trick I had done. Went
back to tell the -shoe, man about It., but
he was gone. The clerk couldn't do any
business for me. Can you?'V ' ?
Patrolman Golts accompanied Fooney
to the shQe store, but the proprietor
said that he was only given $2 in silver,
and that, he had returned the right

KANGAROO COURT V
WORKS ON SUNDAY
The old expression, ' "As busy as a
bee," has become extinct about the po
lice station, and In Its stead one now
hears, "As busy as the kangaroo.". This
is said in honor of Chief Hunt's method
of letting prisoners In, the city-Jail go
before they- have been arraigned before
Municipal Judge Hogue. This morning,
the chief freed one prisoner. Yesterday
morning he released four. , , V
"Some men must stay to' keep the
bugs of. the Jail company,", thought the
self-appointed police judge as he looked
over the record this morning. "I will
allow others to go. . I know Just who"
but at this the reverie stopped for the
shades of George Wilson and C. - Ken
nedy, suspected highwaymen, who es
caped, from the city Jail .three weeks
ago by answering to the names of two
persons'- whom' the chief had : ordered
freed, seem to flit across the record. -
"Begone," . yelled the chief kangaroo.
"I make the men-who get free now tell
us Just what their-first -names are,"
. This Is the plan now In vogue to keep

' "Thirdly, the application ;.of ; power.
This Is the only thing that will save the
world. : There- is a difference between
the ,- resources of the . world and those
of men. The resources of the world If
not developed and applied this year, may
be next year. But the powers of man
If not used must perish with him. The
loss to society,, if the resources of Watts,
Stevenson, Morse, Edison, had not been
developed and , applied to the world's
good, cannot be reckoned. ' The loss of
the . application of ? spiritual power
through the church of Jesus Christ, who
can compute It? But It is the greatest
loss that can come to mankind, and even:
to God. The upper room is the place
the church needs today. If we go there,
and , tarry awhile, we shall generate
power and we shall come forth to dis
tribute, and apply what the world needs

Rev.' W. B. Holllngsh'ead, pastor of the
Centenary Methodist Episcopal church,
announced at the services yesterday
morning that one-fourth of the debt of
$10,000, which stands against the church,
had been subscribed, leaving $7,484 yet
td be provided: ; He further announced
that the actual reduction was considera
bly more than 'the figures might Indi
cate, for the reason that subscriptions
had been handed in too late to appear
In the report t . - ?" ,
The progress of the church in rais
ing the amount, of its indebtedness was
satisfactory, he said, but March 28 was
fixed for closing the debt campaign.
Up to this time no limit or active canvas
haa been made. The trustees, official
members, 'officers' of the Sunday school,
Epworth league. Junior league and la
dles' societies will hold a special meeting
this evening to confer with the pastor In
regard to the canvass. .

Rev. W. E. Randall gave an inter
esting talk at the Central Baptist church
last night on "Ministers and the Mar
riage and Divorce Question."
Rev. Mr. Randall, said that as a min
ister he will endeavor to conserve the
interests of persons and homes, putting
the' ..welfare of , hearts -above all arbi
trary interpretation of the scriptures.
He said the best statement of the re
lation of marriage and, divorce , is em
braced In Jesus' announced mission "not
to destroy, but to save." and that, while
all civilised nations have laws to regu
late the marriage relation, -or rather
those who enter Into matrimony, these
nations also have laws through the chan
nels of which bonds can be . severed. He
said that if a woman married a man and
discovered she had tied .herself ' to a
brute, he did not believe It . to be right
that this woman should be compelled to
live in trouble all through life because
of a vow; made before she1 eould know
the truth. - "Does -God demand that the

AT TIB trust METHODIST.
Dr. Burgette Short preached last
evening at the Taylor Street M. E.
church on the text, "A Peculiar People,
Jealous of Good Works." Titus, 2:14.
Dr. Short said in part: I desire to
call your attention this "evening to the
one phrase "A Peculiar People." The
word "peculiar," as herein used, Is
rather unique in Its setting. Nowhere
else in the New Testament do we find
it It is also peculiar in Its' meaning,
it does not carry with it the idea that
Christians are eccentric, or especially
odd in their relations with men; but
It does mean that christians sustain
a "peculiar" relationship to God through
Jesus Christ. That they do sustain a
"peculiar" relationship with each other,
and that they are "peculiar" In two re
spects. First They, do not speak like other
people: that Is to say, they are guarded
in their conversation. They are also
free and frank, and open-hearted.
Second They utter a pure language-
"nothing filthy falleth from their lips."
General Grant - - :
Third They will not utter, con-
sclouBly, any word or words which will
hurt the feelings or injure the Influences
of the brethren. .
. They are also peculiar in their rela
tion to society, as we now understand
the meaning of the word. They have
been called out and set apart in thla life,
and therefore are not expected to sus
tain relations to society, which are in
any wise detrimental to their own in
fluence or the Influence of the church.
Now, this Is true of every Christian of
every denomination, that they are sup
posed to be a "peculiar people, jealous
of good works;" but especially Is it true
of those who call themselves Methodists,
for they are peculiarly peculiar in their
I am afraid that there is a great, an
increasing and an alarming laxity on
the part of Christian people in their re
lation to society. I am afraid that many
of the amusements of the world have
crept Into the hearts and paralysed the
life of many of pur Christian people, that
instead of their controlling the social
spirit, the social spirit is controlling
them. They are members of our
churches, but they are non-spiritual, non
revival and non-frequenters of our
prayer meetings, which are the very
heart of the church.
I am not here this evening to say to
you that you shall not play cards, at
tend the theatres and such things, but
I am here to say that for myself I can
not do these things as a man without
diminishing my spiritual life, and los
ing my grip upon the hearts of men.
We must be a "peculiar people, eeal
ous of good works," denying ourselves,
taking up our cross, coming out for the
world, being a separate, indeed,
cullar people." -
Dr.' Short w.ll continue the discussion
of this subject at a later date.
