"THE SPIRIT AND THE LETTBB."
Rev. A. J7. Chaffee Delivers a Most
At the First Methodist Eplscopnl
church yesterday morning Uio Itov. A.
P. Chaffee, the pastor, delivered a very
interesting Rcrmon on some of the ex
isting beliefs nnd sayings of the Bible
nnd of modern .times, Illuminating his
subject with cominon-scnso descrip
tions nnd Illustrations of what would
really happen If the people at lnrge
llteially obeyed thu teachings nnd
ina::lms'of cither days. Ho took the
text for his discourse from II Corin
thians, third chapter, sixth verse:
"For the letter kllleth, "but the spirit
The speaker began by saying thnt
every Institution has Its letter or
met hod of government or law. He
traced the histories of Sparta nnd
Athens nnd their governments or lot
trm of law and down to the present
lny, ilt-clarlng that the Treat consti
tutional lawyers of the United States
could be counted on the tips of one's
Angers; not that thcynre not acquaint
ed with the constitution of our coun
try ns It Is printed (every lawver
knows that constitution nnd Its sec
tions nnd amendments), but that they
! not able to grasp the spirit that
dominated the fathers of our country
when they drew up this document of
human rights ISA years ago, nnd hence
were not able to glvo It the subtle In
terpretation thnt the makers of It knew
nnd felt, "Ilcllglous organizations are
no exception to this rule. The letter
lias ever been and hi but the symbol
of the law. The Sermon on the Mount,
the Commandments and the Mosaic
luws are but symbols. We have seen
how essential It Is that one must par
take of the spirit of the law and not
of the letter alone, linptlsm hns no
oillcacy In Itself nor the Lord's Sup
per, If the right spirit Is not present.
The partaking of the bread and wine
In itself will not make us feel closer to
God If wo have not the spirit of the
occasion In our souls.
"There nre many things whleh the
New Testament gives which we do not
copy and which It was not Intended
that we should copy. One of them Is,
1 believe, that when we approach God
In prayer we should 'pray after thin
manner', the Lord's Prayer, only this
nnd no more. There are many times
occasions when we feel that there nre
other things loft to pray for that are
not mentioned In that prayer. While
It Is true that the letter of the Lord's
Prayer may not suit the exigencies of
life, yet the spirit of thnt prayer must
bo In every prayer that wo utter. It
is said in the New Testament that If a
man smites you you should turn the
other cheek to him. If this was liter
ally obeyed the church of Jesus Christ
would be Impossible to live in. Yet to
turn the other check and to be for
bearing and conciliatory In all thlnR3
Is really the spirit of the church. Wo
arc told that wo are not to lay up
treasures upon earth. Literally obeyed
that would mako paupers of every one
of us. God Is anxious that his people
should bo thrifty, but God docs not
want our spirit or our mind to be
eclipsed by a dollar that Is all. You
have all heard a. street piano. How
regular and with what perfect time
every noto is played. If u musician
should sit down and play the same
tuno with the same precision every
noto fnultless and in the right place,
it would bo good plnying. but It would
not be music. Something would no
lacking the harmony that inspires, the
spirit that lifts the- soul aloft, and we
should have the letter and not the
spirit of the melody."
After the sermon the following per
sons, who had been admitted to the
church In December on probation, were
baptized by the pastor: Arthur A.
Tiffany, Mrs. Elvira J. Munroe, Mrs.
J. A. Ammerman, Dlanche D. Hall,

Tho slight Increase in tho Third ward

that not more than four new houses

WIIIL13 NOT approaching the
tragical. Miss Harmon's life
had In it the tragic significance
of meagreness, not the pathetic kind
ot tho Isolated, but whero success had
failed to bring anticipated satisfaction.
Dr. Carroll had warned her. He
had furthermore stated his opinion
that while It was very well for a horso
to have ono Idea, It wasn't equally so
far a human being.
Freedom oC speech evidenced their
friendship; the confidence that no hurt
was Intended allowed none.
So congenial were they that he did
not realize how much nt variance wero
their ideas of life until ho asked her to
share his lot.
"Your's?" she questioned significant
ly. "Yes." almost sternly, divining the
purport of her thoughts. "Mine Is
broader: It cun encompass you; your's
does not go beyond your music. I do
not wish to enter upon a semblance of
marriage. It would be so If you clung
to your work. I should bo secondary
In your thoughts. I should be Mrs.
Carroll's husband. I do not want a
stone, I want bread. I have no wish
to exemplify Plato's theory. I want a
wife; I want love, a home; I want you,
"Thero," she cried, nervously, twist
ing her rings, "that Is what I fear. Oh,
I'm afraid to love you."
"Look here, look to me; do you mean
you weigh a man's honest love In the
scale of your Idea of a work and find
It wanting?" He watched her earnest
face, pathetic In Its struggle.
"I do llko you," sho fultered.
He smiled encouragingly.
"Jtetter than anyone else," ho con
tinued. "I iliould hnto to give you up
"Could you?" Up ttsktVitendorly.
"Yes." fhe did not mpot his eyes.
"It's your music, ts It?"
She nodded an nlllrmatlon.
Sho did not seo him ngnln until tho
night of the Thurston reception.
Ho was standing In the doorway
leading from the reception room to a.
less occupied ono buyond,
Sho cast an appealing glance ns she
passed through on young Kdson's arm.
Ills glnnco betrayed no comprehen
sion, but fht felt lie understood.
They stopped In obedience to the
doctor's detaining gesture.
"Excuse mo Just a moment, I may
not get to si you again, Kdson, and I
wanted to say I hear you aro going to
Europe nbout tho same tlmo we aro,"
nodding toward Miss Harmon. "Wo
go right after our marrlngo next
month, nnd we shall bo pleased to
meet you abroad."
Ho had turned to her tho Instant
they wero nlono, with outstretched
She had risen; suppressed anger,
scorn and contempt found expression
for the moment In her face; words
seemed hard to utter.
"You you," she faltered, "dare you

circumstances an Insult?"
Tho Doctor .had risen; he, too, wns
very white. "Havo a care, Doro
thy," ho commanded. "I may havo
been presuming, but I was sincere."
"Oh, yes, In trying to assist me."
Even In this assertion he detected
Irony. "But the way has been too
much of a hurt. I do not feel honored
by what you said, nnd I shall not go
abroad with you next month."
She passed her hand wearily over her
face ns sho turned from him.
"I shall never come back, Dorothy,"
ho said, reaching for his hat.
He who had never understood her
attitude, attributing her dismissal to
his presumption, not even knowing sho
thought his offer a sacrifice of him
self. Ho could scarcely believe hln
eyes when he received her summons.
"I have changed my mind about go
