NOTED COMPOSER OF HYtvlNS
WRITES SONGS FOR REVIVAL
i i i ii i i
Charles H. Gabriel Submits Composition Inspired by
"Billy" Sunday's Sermon on General Allen.
Charles II. Gabriel, composer of more
than 6000 hymns, and tho best-known
writer of rovlval songs In tho country,
visited "Billy" Sunday In the evan
gelist's temporary homo at 19H Spring
Oarden street today and submitted sev
eral new songs for npproval.
One of tho compositions brought to Mr.
Sunday by tho composer was Inspired by,
ono of "Billy's" sormons this week. In
which he told a pathetic story of General
Ethan Allen and his dylnir daughter,
who was ndvlBed by her father to "Btlck
to her mother's Cod." The hymn Is en
titled "Tho Wnys of the World"; tho
first stanza Is as follows:
Tho ways of the world may tempt you
With their Kllttcr and glint of gold,
Ani 1M promises may allure you.
As jou watch its mlrogo unfold;
Falso prophets, the thloes of Satan.
Like amplros cntlco their prey,
But stick to your mother's God,
Her way Is the safest way.

was something elso that put me down,

It was like this, I was born In TTybsey,

worked in the mines. He was a fine old
fellow, and ho always 'nad un Idea that

Well, both my brother and I go a good
education, and then we started to work.
I was an expert loom repairer In the
woolen mills, and he was doing work In
another department of the same concern.
Then we got a good chance to go wlt'n
an uncle of ours In the same business,
and everything went fine for a while. We
were able to give money to our father
and mother and had gone a long way
toward being what they wanted us to be.
Then my brother went back on me,
There's no use going Into details, but he
'didn't play square with me and I was

Bankrupt Distiller a Suicide
CHICAGO, Jan. 20. Charles Ledowsky,

yesterday, committed suicide some time
last night on a Michigan Central train.
Tho body was discovered on the arrival
of tho train hero today.

so hard to forget about my brother since
I had ruined somebody else. too. It was
as though I had revenged myself for
what was done to me by what I had done
to tho girl.
After I had been here awhile I thought
I would siiuaro myself some, so I got a
Job and sent some money to my mother,
but pretty soon It was returned to me
by my uncle, with a letter telling me that
she had died a year before In my brother's
arms. My father had died the year beforo
I left England, but somehow It seemed
worse to know that she was dead.
Well, there isn't much more to tell. I
kept on going along the same old rotten
path nnd I've been Just a plain "good-for-nothing"
evor since. Thore didn't seem to
be much to live for, and I guess being

CHANGED BY EVANGELIST'S TALK.
I say there didn't seem to be much to
live for, but there does now. I camo In
here last week to hear Mr. Sunday talk.
I didn't enro much what he said, but there
was a crowd, and I was curious, I guess,
nnd then It was nice and warm, too. I
didn't even listen to him at first, but then
he begnn talking about God giving every
one n chance to be happy If they will only
repent, and about It's being up to us If
we are to be saved or going to hell. And
then he said a lot about the homes some
of us have wrecked, and thellves we've
wrecked besides our own, and; It got me.
I was crying before he was half through.
It was the first happy moment I had
known for years wnen I weni up aner air.
Sunday called for those who would come
to Christ, and clasped his hand. It may
be too late, but I'm going to be straight
with aod from now on,

Asaf ftn Optimist, Teela IFury of Dam
Asa Telton, of Camden Is an optimist
He never worries. He Just takes things
as he finds them. It Is this habit that
has caused him much regret Asa Is In
Jail today because he took a gold watch
which he "Jus' natchllly" found In a pile
of dirt. But It appears the dirt was car
lied from the yard of L. M. Nelson, a
jeweler, of 8 13 Broadway Camden. Nelson
contends that Asa should have known
that the watch came from the store, but
Asa explained to the Recorder that he
"discovered It among a heterogeneous
mass of discarded debris and waa not
tntellexually endowed to consider elch
It was learned furthermore that such
deductions would have been somewhat
uncomfortable tp Asa's conscience for the
reason that he pawned the watch In Ques
tion and took one of his best girl to a
party with tho proceeds'. Just here (t was
learned that a woman was In back of
Aea' arrest. It was bis other "best girl."
She had beard of the watch, and, after
smacking her lips In anticipation of the
good things which she bad s, right to
expect on account of Asa's good luck,
she was entirely forgotten,
So she told tho police.

Judge the hits properly, but I don't think
that so many got away from him at that
He made some of the prettiest catches
I have ever seen. He would race across
tho field and tako a head-on dive nnd
catch n ball that looked safe. He became
better as tho years went on, nnd by the
time he wns through with the game he
wns a good fielder, although I never
considered him tho equal of D.ilrymple
or Core, who played1 the other fields when
Sunday Joined tho Chicago team.
As a bnlter Sunday never ranked with
tho heavy hitters. He beat out little hits
ns a rule, and could hardly be classed
with Dan Urouthors, of the Boston team
of that day, or with such men ns Collins
or Cobb. '

While "Billy" was In Chlcngo that win
ter ho formed tho habit of going to evan
gelistic meetings, nnd I think that that
Is whero ho laid the foundation for the
work he la doing now. "Billy" went to
tho meetings nenrly every night. He
never wns much thnt could not be con
sidered good, nnd I hnvo hoard of many
times when he went out with tho players
on their drinking parties to steer them
o or the rough spots and take them homo
imfcly without Joining In the party him.
From Chicago "Billy" went to Pitts
burgh. Ho played good ball thero nnd
wns ono of tho few redeeming features
of n poor team. Tho Phillies were glad
to get him nnd It wns a sad blow to base
ball when ho quit tho gnmc. But I think
It was for tho best, ns Billy hns cer

One Hundred and Ten in
Sorry Plight, but They

"We are on the bum," yelled 110 sailor
and firemen, members of the Philadelphia
branch of tho Eastern and Gulf Sailors'
Association, today wTien Walter Nlefson,
their agent, asked thorn haw they were
making out In the hard times. The whole

"I would be out of work, only I nm
trying to take care of the rest of the
members. Wo aro In bad shape, and I
can speak for the rest of tho members.
Thcro are three German ships laid up

sailor never gets nny notice or attention.
He takes caro of himself whon ashore.
"Tho sailor will never get Justice until
the laws of all tho countries mako the
shipowner responsible for tho loss of
life. Then, to protect thomselvos, they
will have to hlro only skilled sailors t8
