TELLS HOI SUNDAY
ROUTED VICE THERE
AH Resorts Are Closed
and Temperence Sentiment
Has Arisen What Phila
delphia May Expect.
By OEOnOB W. SHELTON
Piiior of the Second Presbyterian Church,
' of Pittsburgh.
The Rev. Dr. Hhcllon came to this city
from ftarrisburg, where he attended the
Inauguration of hts friend Martin 0.
Brumbaugh. He teas one of the men in
ilrvmental In securing Mr. Sunday for the
r-lttburgh campaign and desired to wit-

tureh.i toicro Is every renaon to bcllovo Phila
delphia should benefit by tlio evangelistic
activity of Mr. Sunday to na great an
utent as did Pittsburgh. Tho condition
jn the two cities nro much alike. There

but the objections woro overcome and
the rovlval campaign took place.
Such a movement must bo Judged by
results. That tho results of Sir. Sun
day's work In Pittsburgh were good not
even the most pessimistic "knocker" In
thn city can deny. Tho spirit of tho
-tabernaclo was transmitted to tho
churches, a renewed enthusiasm such as
I havo novcr witnessed shook tho city to
. Its very depths, and best of all, It has
GROWTH OP CONOItnGATIONS.
For example, last Sunday I had tho
largest number at tho Communion serv
ice that his attended a similar scrvlco
In tho church for many yenrs. Tho same
was true of tho KnoxvIIlo Presbyterian
Church, and I am Informed that tho con
dition Is general throughout the city.
At first glnnco It may seem strange
that larger numbers of persons should
be attending the churches now than Im
mediately following tho rovlval campaign,
hut upon closer observation It Is seen
that tho real function of tho movement
was to give nn Impetus to those Inter
ested In churches, to arouse enthusiasm
forces, though .slow to get under way,
ars tremendous In their effective power.
and this power Is cumulative, so that I
might sifcly say that Pittsburgh is only
now beginning to feel the real effects of
tho "Billy" Sunday campaign.
As for tho material results in Pltts-
m burgh, excluding tho Increased church
actlylty they nro bo many that It seems
almost hopeless to try to namo them.
Two features, however, are well worth
calling attention to; namely, tho saloon
evil and tho houses of vice.
Since the close of the Sunday campaign
a temperance sentiment has arisen that
can scarcely bo overrated. Suffice It to
say that there aro fewer saloons In opera
tion today In that city than there wero
at this tlmo Inst year. The Becond feature
la even moro striking. Thero Is not a
llngle hotiso of III reputo open In tho city
of Pittsburgh today! Thnt Is, there Is
not one known to tho municipal or church
authorities,, nnd it Is safe to say it
would bo almost Impossible for one to
be In operation without coming to tho
attention of theso authorities.
"BILLY" SUNDAY'S PAIIT.
This condition has been brought about
by the establishment of a "Bureau of
Morals" under tho direction of a paid
; secretary, whoso duty It Is to seo that
tliese evils nre stamped out. As a re
.tfc 11 .
w mesa ana otner rcrorms, I am
confident In saying that Pittsburgh Is tho
best-governed municipality in the United
I do not say Mr. Sunday is directly re
sponsible for this condition, but I do bo
llevo he In responsible for tho creation
of tho publla sentiment which has de
manded tho eradication of these evils.
And the people of Pittsburgh realize this,
too. They would be only too glad to
havo their popular "Billy" return to tho
ty and conduct a slmlhir campaign
that Is, all would but tho saloonkeepers
and perhaps a half dozen preachers who
opposed him In a moro or less clandestine

Roasting Oyslers in Camp
By T. Ti. TIER.NEY
Ulreclor Camp repia.
The next tlmo you nro wondering what
you will hnvo for ramp BUpper, run Into
jour nearest oyster nnd fish shop and buy
a quantity of oysters, shells nnd nil;
enough to furnish each fellow with half
a dozen Is a good rule, but capacities
vary. Wash them off with cold water
nnd throw them Into your knnpsnek. It
convenient, take with you a good-slzed
pleco of chicken wire, about 4 feet long
and 18 Inches wide.
When you havo your hard wood fire
burned down to n nlco bed of coals,
stretch tho chicken wire over It, not moro
that two Inches nbov tho hot coals.
Support It by driving four stakes into tho
ground nnd hook each corner of tho wire
over a stake. Place tho oysters over the
nro nnd watch developments. Soon you
will seo them open up nbout a quarter
of nn Inch, and If they nro steaming hot
they nre ready to cat.
An oyster rosasted in this way needs
no "trimming," not even salt or pepper.
Just pitch In and get nt them. It's up
to tho Scout to figure out how to hnndlo
tho hot ones. Bread and butter or Just
plain crackers aro good with them, but
a truo lover of tho blvalvo will mnko a
meal without the extras. Tho chicken
wire Is, of course, a luxury, ns tho roast
ing can bo dono directly on tho hot coals.
Vou will sec that nearly every oyster
has one-half of Its shell deeper of moro
cup-shnped than tho other. That's the
sldo you wnnt to placo down, or next
to tho lire, as it ictalns moro of tho
Juice. When tho oysters nro roasting
don't become lnqulsltlvo nt closo rnngo,
n they sometimes open up suddenly and
nn external application of hot oyster
Julco is far from pleasant. Bits of tho
shell often snap off, also, bo keep eyes
A good Instrument for taking the hot
ones oft tho llro can bo mndo In n few
minutes. Take two pieces of lath, nbout
14 or 1G iiichra long, and freo from knots.
Take a picco of wood about Hi Inches
long, of the samo width as the lathing
and about Hi times as thick. This piece
of wood should bo Mndo Into n perfect
wedge, tnporing lenghtwlso from Us full
thickness at one end to nothing at the
other, like tho letter V. Now tnko tho
two pieces of lath and placo on each
sldo of tho V-shaped pleco like this:
Then nail through, bo euro to use brads
long enough to cllch. You will now havo
a pair of tongues like the old-time crab
bers uso to handle live crabs.

Tho crltle who came late to the per
formance of "Tho Serenade" at the dperis
House last night was In a peculiar po-'
sltlon. He couldn't get ft program-the
houso wns too crowded for that Ho hi
had to guess at tho plot, but he probably
wnB used to thnt, and flgorcd thai guess
Ing was all the librettist had done td the
ptot. It turned out thnt ho was mistaken.
''Tho Screnndo" has more cogency nnd
coherence than nine-tenths of tho comic
operas shown here. But still lacking A
progrnm, tho critic could follow Mr. Her
bert, conducting his own opera, with A
sense of satisfaction, And although he
couldn't Identify the singers, he heard
a great deal of good singing, with tho
freshness nnd gaiety of amateur votees
ongratted on the tricks of professional
work, nnd vice versa. He could follow1
bandits nnd dukes and girls masquerading
nn boys; ho could hear a splendid divided,
chorus In tho second act and see some
beautiful solo dancing In the third, And
If ho wns very lucky, ns In the present
case, ho could find a program when It
was nil over nnd discover that Misses
Langston, Hagar and Gnlbralth and
Messrs. Hood, Coffrnln, Conly, Volkmann
and Blake had been giving htm most or
hln pleasures, with Miss Wroe as tha
Mr, Horbcrt In accepting a wreath given
ns a token of gratitude by tho Operatla
Society denied tho soft Impeachment that
ho hnd written 100 comla operas. He ad
mitted ho had written 40. One wonders
whether ha over did a more thoroughly
delightful ono than this.
