James B. Jfackie's new play, "The Side
Show," which will be the attraction at the
Academy of Mnsio Thursday evening, is
said to be one of the most amusing come

with life as it exists at the present day in
the town of Georgetown, Muss., where
the scene is laid, especially on circus day.
"The Side Show" tells a coherent story,
which is carefully adhered to throughout
the play. It serves as an excellent me
dium for the introduction of many pleas

support a very strong coterie of come

Mr. Moody resumed his services yes

gathering; at Elm Park ehnrch at 3 p.
ra bis snbjest being the "Holy
Spirit." Messrs. Stebbins and Caswal-
Ion Davies again conducted tbe pre
ceding musioal services. Mr. Moody
in his address said :
There are two scenes nrominent in mv
life which I hope I will never forget as
long as I live. The first was when! was
born of tbe Holy Spirit end the second
when God baptised me with tbe Boly
Ghost in 1871 and as I believe annotated
me for bis service. Life since then as well
as the work, has been altogether differ

now and feel myself set tin it younger ev
You bear of ministers brsaking down
from overwork. It I were to ask the au
dience "What did Christ come to the
world forf ' almost every child could read
ily answer that he came to seek aud save
that which is lost, but if I ask what is tbe
work of the Holv Ghost a large number
of the audience would be bewildered and
confused. Tbe Father, the Son and the
Boly Ghost each have their own work,
and the work ot the SDirit is to convlnoe
people of their sin. People like to be flat
tered and to be told of their good points,
but they cannot appreciate being told of
their weak points, their failures or faults,
and that is tbe reason why people do not
like the meetings when the Spirit ot God
manifests itself. Let us preach the gospel
and tbe Holy Spirit will do the rest.
ANOSLS WOULD AIL.
If an aneel from heaven came down to
preach be would not convince siuners of
their sins and wickedness aud men have
no power to do so, it is tbe work of the
n oly spirit. let us Keep that in mind.
We sometimes see a man rise from the
meetings in an angry mood and slam the
dood behind him. (I prefer that to those
who come up and' thank you for the ser
mon and then forget all about it as soon
as they get Into the street. The first man

Mr. Moodv then enumerated the
work of the Holy Spirit as follows:
After conversion it sheds the love ot
God abroad In the heart; imparts hope;
gives liberty; testib.es of Jesus Christ;
"tie shall teach yon all things and
guide into all truth In tbe latter end
of bis address Mr. Moody mads a tern-
no onslaught on tobacco smokers, in
tbe following terms-
I am now going to hurt the feelings of
some or you, but 1 am going to say what
1 honestly believe. If these bodies of ours
are going to be kept sweet, no child ot God
ought to be saturated with tobacco. Why
make a smoke stack or yourselves? Give
up the bablt for Christ's sake, and you will
have more power and influence to work in
At the conclusion of his address the
evangelist invited all to stay for an
hour s prayer meeting; and asked those
wbo did not care to do so or who were
not able to remain to walk ont quietly
while a nymn was otine sung. The
majority of tbe audience remained in
response to the invitation.
As a result of the invitation, 800 peo
ple adjourned to tbe basement when
Mr. Moodv engaged! In a general con
versation, and fifty came forward and
signed the eards pledging themselves
to tbe Christian faith.
SERVICES AT NIQHT.
Io the evening Mr. Moody addressed
tbe male portion of his audience in
compliance with an invitation whicb
be bad Issued, and arrangements were
made whereby tbe body of tbe Elm
Park church auditorium was reserved
exclusively for the men, ths ladies being
seated in tbe gallery. All the availa
ble seating aeoommodation was occu
pied. Tallie Morgan conducted ths
singing, while Mr. Stebbins accom
panied and contributed some of his ex
Rev. Warren G. Partridge announced
an offtrtory in aid of tbe expense of
tbe mission, Mr. Moody hoped tbe
audience would give liberally as they
did not want the money, it would be
spent in Seranton. Mr. Bliss sod Mr.
Bcnivera wouia continue to bold the
mission services until Out. 1. Couven
(ton after convention had been held to
decide tbe question as to how they
could reach tbe masses, and be was
sure from bis experience that tbe tent
meeting was tbe best means. If but
100 tenls were arranged, about 600,000
people could be rsaehed by tbeir meet
lugs. He hoped that this was but the
beginning of a great work that was
going right through the country. When
Mr. Schivera arrived, meetings would
wonld be held in Providence. In de
livering bis address Mr. Moody opened
I have three texts, one Is a question, the
other is an exhortation and the last is a
command. Some men have a great Cbrlt
and others have a little Christ it is just as
yon make Bim to be. A great many, upon
the advent of Christ, followed 11 im for
what they could get, and they were ths
disappointed ones. Some thought Be Was
a temporal King ana expected cmces, sucb
as postmaster, secretary ot state, etc.. and
when they found that Be was a spiritual
king they left Bim. Others went for
curiosity to see what He bad to say,
Others went after the loaves and fishes
and did not care for the pure doctrine Be
hsd bronght from heaven. Another class
followed Him to engage Bim in theological
discussions lias higher criticism or to make
Bim blasphemy. Another class slmnlv
followed the crowd and couldn't give the
reason why, and here and there a man
sought Bim for what He was.
Through all the 1,800 years human na
ture bad not changed and such a crowd
can be found in Seranton and tbe same
motives which animated the crowd in
these days have prompted many of yon to
be present tonight. If I could only get at
Jour consciences and knew the real reason
would find that some have come to hear
the singing,- they are;the people who don't
like a sermon; soms have come to please
their wives; another man has come because
his mother entreated bim to.
