CHURCH SHOWS PROGRESS
A "dying church" over which any one
would rejoice Is the 20th Street Methodist.
For somo yearn this church was grad
ually losing strength, and its Ucuth wna
predicted as a result of a changing neigh
borhood. No longer did the church "fit"
thu community. Somo two years ago A.
L. Copper was appointed as pastor and
tuday tho Sunday school enrollment In
larger than It has been for the? last 30
yeais, whllo tho church membership U
steadily growing and now courago has
been Infused Into tho whole congregation.
Central tffrutlj of Jflen'si lUsson
International Series Judges 2; 1-19
OotX punishes the sinner; lie chastises the believer there is a difference.
The object of punlthmcnt fa to satisfy law; the object of chastisement Is
correction. The latter is prompted by love, the farmer by late. A criminal
court Judge can sentence a man fo prljon uHthout a quiver of emotion: the
law demands the criminal's punishment. A father can draw the 'bloo.d rom
a rebellious son's mind and almost break his own Heart in doing U; love de
mands the son's correction, and. that Judge and father may be the same
man. Qo'd's providences must always be viewed in the light of one's relation
to Qod, To one man calamity is punishment, to another it is ehastlsevient.
Whether son or sinner, it is dangerous (o disregard the providences of God.
The whole lesson presents a pathetic picture of a father striving to tdn
the Jove and obedience of a wayward, ungrateful son. There is displayed
the Father teas patient, and determined to win him back. This patience was
deep and compassionate. In the son, , self-willed stubbornness, ingratitude,
"Israel forsook the Lord and served the gods of the people around Tifm," but
the father was patient, and determined to win him lack, This patience teas
expressed in anger; maybe a strange way to show patience, but read verse
t5: ""WMthersoevr they went out the tcand of the Lard was against them
for evil and they were sorely distressed," i then verse JO: Nevertheless,
the .Dfd raised up Judges, which delivered them,' and we have the paradox
of the anger of patience. It was anger manifested by the infliction of chas
tisement, bitter and severe, and the instruments of chastisement were the
very people whose OQds Israel worshiped. Tet in t all there is love and pity,
and patient waiting for the son to turn laqk and be true. It fs'the Father
chastising the rebellious ion in tha hope of correcting him.
The practical anpffcaffon is to fis worldly church and the backsliding
Christian. Qod often uses the elements of the world to ahasilse a worldly
church. JPfJraeottiton tfon without is not always a sign of py toithin; it
may be Qod's instrument of correction. The hand of the Jbsfd Ualso against
backsliding Christians. If vou are not jiving close to Him, toateh (fod's

A cnlt to arms has been Issued by Doc
tor Tope today for still greater and con
stantly Increasing nttneks ngalnst the
liquor traffic. Doctor Tope snld that It
Is time for tho United States to take n
hand In tho nntl-ltquor war nnd strive to
lend the world In tho fight ngalnst tho
ravages of alcohol. Tho following state
ment was Issued by Doctor Topo today,
addressed to all temperance workers In
general nnd those of Pennsylvania In
particular, as an encouragement In tho
valiant struggle ngalnst "King Alcohol."
A CALL TO ARMS.
"With Russia dry nnd the German Em
peror likely to close all tho breweries
In tho Empire If tho war Is to last six
months more; with Franco prohibiting
nbslntho and England taking an nd
vnnccd stand on tho temperance question.
It devolves upon the United StnteB to tako
Its placo In the march of the anti-liquor
crusado and abolish the saloon. Tho
tlmo of the saloon in America Is short.
Tho tlmo of Its going Is near, and why
should It not go?
"Is this not tho burning question of the
hour that overshndows every other; tho
gnat question of the times, the settle
ment of which depends upon 'tho choice
of tho citizens? Why should wo not al
low each citizen In each State to voto
on tho question of an amendment to the
Constitution, prohibiting tho liquor trnlTlc?
Tho Constitution Is safeguarded In that
It requires 3G States to changoNlt. If the
temperance advocates of 36 Stales do not
want saloons, why should not tho major
ity rule? Tho saloon produces crime; It
Is a breeder of poverty, the mother of
shame and sorrow, tho dcspollcr of the
home, the curse of the suffering wife and
child, nnd the bitter enemy of God. Is
there a place for It In our civilization?
Has It not already existed too long In our
"When Russia, with less opportunity,
poorer enlightenment nnd miserable en
vironment, lias forged ahead of us. Is It
not tlmo for us to begin a campaign of
ngitatton and education that will free our
land from tho saloon?
"Heathen Sparta abolished all drunken
ness and debauchery from her territory.
Tho ancient Germans wore admired by
Caesar for their abstinence from wine.
Tho Infidel Mohammedans have a law
abjuring all liquor and drunkenness, and
have had It slnco the daps of Mohammet.
LACK OF THOUGHT CAUSE,
"Tho one cause for the continuance of
tho (saloon In America is lack of thought
on tho part of the citizens and a halt
awakened conscience. This Is a national
evil and requires national treatment. Tho
last stronghold of tho trafflo )s ta In
trenchment In tho Government. Tho tlmo
has come for Us to assail It with our
biggest siege guns. Tho liquor dealor
Is not the only man to blame. Ho pays
for his license. Ho polntB to the Judge
who gave him power to sell liquor. Whon
you assail the Judge, ho points to the
Legislature, who mnde tho law. When
you censure tho Legislature, It says tho
Christian pooplo nro responsible. And la
this not true? Where there ' Is an III
there Is responsibility.
"Tho time Is not far distant when tho
sign, 'To Let.' will hang from tho door
knobs of every saloon In America, and'
tho bar fixtures wII bo cast Into the
Junk heap. The conscience of tho people
Is being awakened, the nntlon Is being
aroused as never before, and (the Church
Is awakening from Its Rip Van Winkle
sleep. The onloon has already been
driven from big business, outflanked pn
the field of science, outgeneraled tn the
home and Is retreating from the fields
THE REAL ISSUE.
"How long will the Government be a
partner In the liquor traffic, and the
liquor trafTIc be n partner In the Govern
ment? This Is the Issue of tho last
battle. This Is a call to arms. Every
roan Is expected to do his duty and line
up tn solid squares, as they did at Water
loo. The head of the liquor serpent must
be bruised by enlightened patriotism. A
patriot Is a man who loves his country.
There Ib a great and growing demand
for patriots. What la our country's
grtaWft asset? Is It not our men, women
and phlldren? Should we not oppose
that which destroys human life and hap
piness? 'In God AVe Trust may be In
scribed on the sliver dollar, but It Is
much better to have It Inscribed In the
hearts of tho people.
GREAT VICTORY ACHIEVED.
"Tho victory won nt Washington on
December 22 was all the more remark
able -when It Is recalled that the Presi
dent of the United States and Ms Secre
tary of State were against the Ifobson
resolution, as were Floor Leaders Mann
"The friends of prohibition will continue
to march onward as never before.
"There were 6,000.000 dry petitioners
for the resolution. Not more than one or
two of the 189 Representatives who voted
against the resolution expressed opposi
tion to prohibition Itself. Seventeen
States cast their entire vote for the Hob
