Schoolhouse Sermon in a Johnstown
Suburb, by the Bishop.
LISTENERS WITH SEEKING FACES.
30 Pathetic Pictures Out of Many That
Might ba Drawn.
BISHOP WHITEHEAD'S WOEDS OPCHEEE
JFBOM A BIATr COBBKSPONDSST.J
Johi.stown, June 16 The classroom of
the Peelorville schoolhouse was turned into
a temporary church this morning, and when
the Iiicht Reverend Bishop Whitehead, of
Pittsburg, walked into the little room, the
jilace was packed from wall to wall. It
was a singular congregation in many re
spects. Tour correspondent w as one pf the
first to arrive.
One after another of the people came in;
the looks in their eyes were all of about the
same kind not a vacant stare: no, all of
them appeared to have a kind of searching
The strong, robust, athletically-built man
who gave jou the idea of a lovine and pro
tecting father and husband, came in with
his head bowed and his gaze upon the floor.
Before he sat down he looked around at the
number of women who were already seated.
He seemed to.be scrutinizing every feature,
every contour of the countenances before
him. Then another more searching glance
from his anxious eyes swept over the assem
bly, and only then he sat down. He bowed
his head and buried his face in his hands.
His actions, his looks suggested his
thoughts; they were not hard to read; it
was one of the thousands of wifeless and
childless men from Johnstown, who had
lost his home, his all, in the great calamity
of two weeks ago.
STILL, SEEKING THEM.
While convinced that the chubby little
hands of his baby boy had been torn from
his loving embrace by the waters, while he
knew that the sweet, smiling face of his
wire had already been buried in yonder
cemetery on the hill, still that thought of
innate hope which is no more than a step
child of despair, Mas yet within him, and
even in this temporary house of God, among
the familiar faces of his friends, where he
had so often found his dearones, the thought
became once more strong within him, the
flickering light of hope blazed once more
into a flame, but only to be quenched again
more effectually, when he did not find those
his heart yearned for.
Then another life-and-death picture was
framed. A woman about 30 years of age,
with a beautiful golden-haired bov by her
side (mother and son), came in. The woman
had evidently lost everything except her
child She was dressed in a thin calico
skirt and a black bodice, and her outfit
looked much the worse for wear. An old
bonnet, with a few crushed flowers, covered
her head. The child's clothing was in a
similar condition; but, while the mother's
face showed the traces of sorrow plainly in
every line, the little boy looked with a
spirit of wonder and astonishment at the
crowd within the schoolhouse church.
"Say, mamma," he spoke out, in his
childish voice, "I wonder if papa and little
Alice are here ? There are so manv people,
and I think they must be. Let me look?"
And with these words the small fellow
tore mmself away, looked all around,
scanned the face of everv man and peered
into the eyes of all the little ones in the
room. Alter a while he turned back to his
mother, ho we ver, and the feeling of that
lrttle child, the disappointment which must
have filled his heart, was reflected upon his
features, though it cannot be described.
THE SADDEST SOMEWHEBE.
"I can't find them, mamma," he said.
"Let's go and look somewhere else."
Tnose were the few words, telling the
volume of grief that even a child's heart can
In the meantime all the seats were filled.
Hymns were sung, and after that the bishop
ascended the little pulpit.
"My dear friends, brethren and sisters,"
he commenced, "I think I have now the
hardest task before me that ever pre
sented itself to me in all my experi
ence as a minister of the gospel, But of one
thing you may be certain I have not come
here to preach to you; for you this is not the
time to listen to a sermon. Still, I would
like to tell you a good many things. I feel
a good many things which I should like to
express in this hour of your sorrow and
affliction, and if I leave anything unsaid,
do not think I left it out intentionally. I
feel it all, but I dare not trust myself to say
it all." Continuing, Bishop Whitehead

Now.asl taVe a retrospective view of the creat
calamity which has overcome von, and its dis
astrous and harrowing results, there is one
thine which has struck me as very forcible,
and this is the fact that, In spite of the greatest
afflictions, the most terrible misfortunes, one
thing remains unshaken, and that is our moth er
church. She still remains, with all its mercy,
all its promise, all its peace, all its clory arid
all its magniflcence. We can gather around
her knees the same as ever, and if I come here
to bring you a few words of comfort 1 cannot
think of saying anythingmore comforting than
that, in spite of all chances and transforma
tion, there it remains, the one thine stable and
The trst line of the epistle on the Feast of
Trinity, which e celebrate to-day, says that
there are many doors of heaven. Ww, it is
Sossible to look to heaven through many doors,

ahead of them.
SPEAKIXC PEACE TO THEM.
Do not look-to them: the Lord is not so much
In the storm and in the tempest as He is in the
calm and the serene. I know some of you,
while thinking of the late visitation of a dread
ful bereavement, believe it came to curse you,
and so respond by even swearing at God. Do
not think that He has sent such a thing in
wrath. Whatever He does. He does it for
Some purpose. But the Lord Is in the calm,
and. whatever He works, He has done it for

will nevertheless come a time when you will

The reverend gentleman'sjaddress affected
his audience to tears tears which eased
pain, for no one had, perhaps, talked to
them so hopefully and cheeringly since the
flood. A sigh of re-assurance "came from
many a sorrowing heart; and, when the
Bishop invited them to step forward and
partake of the sacrament, the walk of the
men seemed to be firm and that of the
women more elastic and buoyant
In the afternoon the Bishop made ar
rangements to hire Henry George's hall, on
Main street, wherein services will be held
hereafter every Sunday. Bev. Mr. Bragdon
will take charge of the congregation.

Tireless Efforts of the Hospital Attendants
to Believe Suffering.
rntOM A 8TATF COBBEEPOSnXNT.3
Johnstowit, June 16. Up to the pres
ent time the Bedford Street Hospital has
treated 52 flood sufferers, of whom two died.
To-day there are seven patients, two men
and five women, in the clean, well-kept hall.
Many minor surgical cases have been treated
daily, and the outside cases come in so fast
that no record can be kept of them. J3r.
McCaskey, of Bolivar, and Dr. J. C. Sheri
dan, of Johnstown, have charge of the pa
tients, besides A. L. Booth, a skilled male
nurse from Detroit.
As an instance of the tireless energy with
which tne attendants have worked day and
night to relieve the sufferers, A. H. Bab
cock, Secretary of the hospital, did not take
off his clothing for nine days when he first
arrived on the scene, because sleep was out
of the question. It is impossible for those
who have not seen them at their worK to re
alize the immense amount of labor per
formed by the hospital physicians, nurses
and attendants, and it is remarkable how
few have succumbed to the terrors of the

ISrECIAL TELEGRAM TO THE DIGFATCH.l
JOHNSTOWN, June Hb There is a slight
falling off in the number of prescriptions
issued at the hospitals. The State Board of
Health reports little change in the sanitary
condition. Dr. Groff says that all that is
necessary now is a continuance of the strict
sanitary provisions. Bronchitis and diar
rhoea are common among the laborers, and
there are two cases of pneumonia at the
Bedford Street Hospital. Measles are prev
alent among children.
Dr. Free, of the State Board of Health,
has inspected the river towns as far down
as Sang Hollow: The worst discovery
made was the large number of dead horses
and cows in the river. The dynamite ex
plosions have brought the carcasses to tne
surface. They are in a bad state of decom
