WOH OF KUEMBE Address liy Cornelius Uckliardt, of the Star Newspaper, 'asliiii(ton. AN AISLE RRStMR 01 LAY K0UK Tho Pastor's Critics Discussed- Claims of the Lutheran ( limcli-llcr Position Defined -- Liturgical Service Defended- 1 11(11 rc of l.utlicriinisiu. Last evening an admirable address was deliveivd by Cornelius Kckhardt at the Holy Trinity Lutheran church on Adams uvenue to tho members of the local Luther league. Mr. Kckhardt is !i!iCOAiA CORNELIl'S F.C'KHA ltDT. a member of the staff of the Star news paper, Washington, D. C, and is well known for his great services to the Lutheran b'ague In the States. During his address lie -ali.1: To have and to hold tn. nihechlp In the Lutheran church, the Church of Christ, isto my mind an honor oftio Utile moment. To know the Lutheran church and her dts.-brltii.jt IhiM'otigMy Is Id knw ih? very M.Jsencc of Chris tk'i.n My, and to feed thtf vast membcryhip on Mils cisenve I the constant aim of our great church. It Is gratifying indeed to note the great Interest manil'i'Sted everywhere in our church and hew well she lias In e.t bruitgll to the fiant dur ins'the pa si few years. If 'it wvre n i't for .the pU'i'e an l fipotless history she has made lor 'hws. ll' this Interest would die out. Her doctrines have sto.j',1 the test these centutles an l re main unch.inge.l. Th" Lutheran chu ell will bt ir the cluswl investigation. This is wh it we wa.nil and this is what we have been ge'iig through w.lth for the past ffW yeai'S and! that Is why .the in terest is ever ell the llK-rcase. If these Is any one thing an em ployer Hpprc.-Htes more than another, It is the uninterrupted attention to buy! !.?. 5l.!itl intonst In his bit -dues on the part of his .employes. Where j'ltch a state of affairs exist, good ro fult.i nui-t snivly follow. In this you will all. no doubt, uvee with me. Why, then, cannot this be a.pplied to the re l.ntiuinshiip hptweon pa.-itor and peopl.''.' We, .TS laymen, tm members of the church, seleat a p:isti;r. we employ him and yet I dhJliUc tha.t word in this con nection. Forget That lie Is Human. We expert him 'to do ithe very b;st h? c.im ar.d sjme tiir.-s more; yt s, very . fteii we are d-ridodly unreasonable. We l'eTgct that he is .human, awfully humati, aiiid tliat he ctamot possibly do Just the thing to i!(h.u all of us, all the time. We very ot 01 find fault over some trilling 1m ppcnintf, t ha t is not worth a moment's coii-ide: jtion, und what does all this lead to? A general dis satisfaction; an 1 why'.' do you ask. Hc-cau.-ii Mr. Hr.r.vu has a liitle grievance and at the llrrft opportunity must go to Mr. Jones, relate it and in turn h.-ar one from him: th. n comes Mr. Smith with another, and so on until the entire membership has but cue object in com ing' to church, and that not the tight one. Tills lis Jay activity, but, my friends, tile wrong kind. Turn a de if ear t.i.su-li itrilles a ml II' you have any thing; to njy about your n.istor, be man ly enough to Hay Jt to him, und to lilm alone; it concerns no one else. Jf you havtin't anything to do In the church go to your pastor; he will find sMmtithitng for you, and until he dot s llnd something do what Is reiiulred cf jmu a coiiri.tent member of thn chureh, take ptirt in the services, King out Hin the hymns, and pay close it tent'lon to the sennon, t? home mind prollt by It. The Juther league topic for this date. "Tint King Curing Dis ease." is a very isuggestive nni- .in this conh.ectien. Tlvia cwitinuul fault find ing ban grown to be a disease with many, and Hi? sooir-r w rid our.sclws of It the b. tier for the church When once we lcc.t a pastor It Is our boundeii duty to lender him fill the aid po.-i lble, and this can be done, oh, In i ti".iny ways.

In their piHw nice we should never speak but In ithe highest term!', and, n.s 1 mid a, f. w moments ago there Is no occasion for anyt'hlng else. A (iood Choir Appreciated. Having just spoken of the clmlr and l.ft 1 should be inlsHini'derstood In that dircclloti, 1 want to say ithat J appre ciate the b rvlros of n good choir. I was once a tucnih'eir of a choir myself, and nolturtiMy (have a, kindly felling toward them, but I do not bnlleve that we .should be f'ltlsfled to let the choir do all of the singing, i'.y .the older of service laid down forottr church worship there is an abundance of time tillotied tht in for yperlal winging, so that we should not feel as though we were nn croachlng m tin Ir rights when we take part and hotp tli"m otrt. A return to the times of Lulher Is iKrcwary and hi ire nuiiy be iiioted one of his choleo-it saylngs,"Muslelstheartof the prvphets tint only art which can calm tho agita tion of the soul. A mlnishr who will thoroughly pre pare liinifrnilf for tlie ipulplt oam In from twenty to thirty minutes give his con Iti'i gait km an entire week's foml for thought.

In passing I want to say a few words on the oyster supper and Ice cream fes tival craze for raising money. This d cldedly iinscrlptural and In many ways (lestional)le manner of raising money for church work should not claim n moment of our time. The church Is not a kitchen or an Ice cream saloon, but a place set iipart and dedicated for the worship of Almighty (tod, ami ns mioli should be used and for no other pur poses. Ab a good Lutheran friend of mine, prominent in the church and In public iifTalrs, the Hon. M. D. Hurler, a representative from Ohio, In ft recent address delivered In lialtlmore, well said: "You would not come Into my house and expect to- find the refrigera tor In the parlor and the piano In the cellar." Most certainly not, and yet with tho chtiroh constantly advocated bv some people for the holding of such affairs will, In the course of time, give rise to many a doubt ns to whether this or that structure net apart for the worship of God Is In reality a church or an lee cream saloon or an oyster kitchen. They Dlsgmec the Church, ltlsadlsgraceonus as members of the church of Christ, and it makes no dif ference w hether it is held in the church or in some other place, so long as it is held or given in the name of the church, the evil still exists, although in not quite so bad it form as when held In the church. As tills great evil Is iil most entirely in the control of the laity, let us rise up und Fay No! these tilings cannot be. (live as commanded by the Sacred Word and do not draw forth a clngle penny by an appeal to the appe tite. Remember, "It !h more blessed to give than to receive," and bear In mind that when you pay -5 cents for an oyster supper and receive full value for your money you are not supporting the gospel In the proper manner. Then again they are trouble breeders of the worst kind, und the sooner we git rid of all the better. I know the ladles will wel come the day when these things are no more, tlive, give freely, according to your ability, only give. To my mind uuotlier very serious drawback to the work of our church Is this continual prutter of the ex tremely liberal clement In our church for in tcr-denoiiiina llonal work, so-called, und who bee! grieved to think that very hiuny of our best and ablest min isters will not unite with them In tills work, und who refuse to lock arms with every new comer In ids efforts to spread the gospel. It has often been u matter of great surprise to me that .hese extremists never seem to realize that to be so ready and willing to have others do the work Is demonstrating the fact ideally that they are not equal to the work. It Is certainly a tacit ad mission on their part of their Inability. The great majority of our Lutheran ministers, 1 am glad to say, are op posed to such things, and in this they need ' our hearty co-operation und should . have It. Your place and my place Is at the church to which we be lon;.T, and If we do our duty there, we'll never have time to think of going out side, ami an long as we are members of a church the membership or wnien fur exceeds Unit of any other Protest unt denomination in the world today, and whose teachings ure so firmly planted on the word of Cod, why look for anything else to do. Plenty of Work to Do. There is any amount of work for us to do all the time; the causes of home missions und church extension alone are now demanding more time and at tention than we give to them and it Keems to me, that ill so noble a cause, we should (ill the more glory In our own work and constantly push it for ward. This address would be Incomplete should 1 not refer to the Sunday school and societies connected with the church. Without a doubt the most Important of these Is the Sunday school. As lay men we cannot give the pastor and supoi lntendent too much support in this line of the work. Mere tin- cnu dren are moulded for life, and as they eventually become the members of the church, they should in addition to the regular lesson be instructed thoroughly In tin; use of a service. ..) nunuuy school can be conducted successfully without one. All this talk against forms has had its day. and those most bitterly opposed to forms as laid down bv the" church ure usually the greatest sticklers for foi nis of their own, which are at times narrow in the extreme. 11 docs not make anv diflerence whether the pastor, church council, teacher and o Ulcer of the school have decided opin ions on these questions or not. The very fact that they do agree and unite in the adoption ot an order oi service makes said order of service, no matter how scriptural or simple, ritualism. Fneourage the Luther league, my friends, for certainly if the Lutheran e.hni-ch In tills country is to lie u.ilteii. and 1 trust it may not be long, the Luther league will do it. And then with what rejoicing and good will can we sing: My Chureh! My Church! my dear old Church! My fathers' und my own! On Prophets and Apostles built, And Christ the Corner Stone! COAL ROYALTIES DISPUTE. Mrs. Cathcrhio Winton Iirinus Suit to Kccovcr $1 A.:i()7.0'J. A law suit involving a big sum of money for coal royalties was Instituted In court Saturday by Mrs. Catherln Winton through her son, Attorney A. II. Winton, against Coal Operator (). S. Johnson. It arises from a dispute ns to the amount to be paid. Between Mrs, Winton's claim and Mr. Johnson's stati ment tin re Is a difference of $1,(1, ilto.OL', and that is the amount sued for On Sept. 20, ISSi, Mrs. Winton leased twenty acres and 152 perches uf coal land In Green Ridge to L. A. Watres, K. N. Willurd and O. R. Johnson, for the sum of $1,000 annually. This amount was payable in monthly instalments. Again on Aug. 12, lss.'i. Mrs. Winton leased to O. S. Johnson, Individually, nil the. balance of the land in the same tract, and the provisions of this lease were that Mr. Johnson should pay u royalty on 1.1,000 tons of coal, whether that amount was mined or not. An ad ditional provision was made in the lease subsequently, whereby Mr. John- Bon agreed to pay $C..r.00 annually while operating under the two leases, because then It was stated in the lease that the Interests or 10. N. Wlllard nnd L. A Watres hud been assigned to Mr. Joint' son. Mrs. Winton ullegcs that under tills lease she Is entitled to $:i2.r.00, whlcli Is the total for live years at the rate of Jti.MO annually. On Jan. 12 of this year Mrs. Winton received, says she received, u statement from Mr. Johnson showing a balance In her favor of $IO,i:i2.0S. On the strength of this statement the suit Is brought.

Brownie Show Dine Just Like Grown Folks-Occurred After Saturday's Matinee. "Prithee, Queen Flora, let us sup," paid Prince Aldtbaran to the goddess of the flowers. 'Surely,' prince, I shall be quite pleased to do so," coyly responded the willing maiden. Wheieup Prince Aldebaran gallantly proferred her his urm .und called out in a loud, commanding voice, "What ho, my brave followers, to the feust! to the feast!" And every follower rushed about to capture a winsome charmer most suited to his fancy. They llled up to the banquet hall und were soon in the midst of a toothsome Bpleud uf all manner uf good things. This didn't happen many, many years ago nor in a far away und sunny clime. It nil happened Saturday evening In the Young Men's Christian Association building, when, after the i'.rownle show of the afternoon, the charming Utile fairies and Palmer Cox's queer or.-a- turos sat down to a supper provided for tiliem In the dining mom on the third floor. Mrs. T. H. Watklns, Mrs. Q. K. Surdam uind some other ladles con ceived the Idea und the fast and furious fun which followed well repaid Ulem fur their pains. They Deserved the I east. The little folks had worked hard In preparing for the Urownie entertain ment, which was llrst presented on Fri day evening. After the matinee of Sat urday afternoon it was exuected they Would be fatigued, so the supper was hit upon as a nappy plan for spending the interval preceding the night's per forma nee. The juvenile feast.-rs were in their stage costumes und were of all ages from 5 to M years. Sentiment was added to the nupper by the announce ment that it was given by the lirownles to the Fairies. Whether any of the llirtatlons assumed serious proportions or not dues not appear anyhow, they had fun, und didn't have to tramp home to eat, which were the two objects of the spread. It was an enjoyable feature of the three entertainments, which netted about $2'i0 for the association's furnish ing fund, amused and instructed its fifty performers and pleased u large number of grown-up folks. - OVER THE BOULEVARD. 1'lctisunt Sleighing.
