ol' Willies-K.irre. inadi. an address on
rtle thoiiie. "Uehglo.i as Jehus Taught

ered by the tltli of his atldiosrf. - lie
wild that there were two questions,
"What does rellglosi really come from
and whole does it uome to." Jlo quoted
several IjouUa and authors, notably a
book by How .Mr. Uregg. of London,
published ilfty yoais ago, and called
"The I'reo.lH of Oiiristondoni," He said
flrosKS' book was one of the first to
lake this serious subject up In a popu
lar way, Klugler, a Merman writer, ho
quoted as saying that rit. Paul was tho
launder of Christianity. Huxley was
another who treated religion In a crit
ical light, unulyzlng and weighing tho
doctrines of the church against the life
and teachings of Christ. These authors
made out that there was a vast differ
ence between th way that Jesus
taught religion ami as the churches
The speaker mentioned that the
churches do tench religion as Jesus
taught it and thnl St, Paul was a true
disciple of the Master. He believed
that there was no radical difference be
tween the teachings of Christ and tho
teaehlnKK of the ohurehes. The lesson
taught by Christ first and last wan tho
love of.Ood and the love we should
bear to our fellow man. Tho Lord
Jesus Christ had a doctrine about his
own personality, and he taught the
ohureh doctrine in regard to redemp
tion," thut the blood of Jesus Christ
would" &ave. Mr. Morris recommended
Hl( to read Dr, Burnard's book, "Tho
Progress of Doctrine In the New Teatu
inent," The doctrine of the New Tes
' tamont, the doctiine of the Epistles, Is
the iloctrlno of tho church today. Thu
. teachings of tho whole Now Testa
mem 1a of, doctrines taught by all of
v.UJsj disciples. Tho simple discourses
or Uio Qospel has turned many back
Into tho right path. Tho Lord Jesus
Christ said to His disciples, "They who
recetvji you receive nie.''

-' How It. N. Hurrls, of Welsh Hill,
'then spoke on the theme, "The Kinnn
..vlul Problem of Our Churches." He
said he regretted huvlng to tuke up
' the tlnanclnl problem to quickly after
the spiritual problem ab expounded by
Mr, Morrl. Ho bald he believed that
more ecclesiastical societies hud tonus
lo grief and destruction, though bud
nmnagement of their money than from
uny other cause. IIo "believed that the
1 1 I
kecplng-of all lliianelul matters should

"Every ''hrliilator," t bellovo, ought to.
he a gootl llniinelcr-lll order to ovoisro
tho churjChls niont;y affairs. A fallttro
to "olist'rVo 'this thing often becomes
dlsnslrouN lo both laslor and ohtirch.
I speak from experience. Our benevo
lent oi'Kunl.utlous arc oRon it fallttio
becuusu tliOy coiillict with I ho other
affairs of the church. With u llttlu
Judgment wo can never fall. I bellovo
another mistake Is iimdo w lien wo do
not specify tho collection as wo should
when a little money Is needed for spe
cial work. I bellovo we should tulto
special euro us pastors thut the debts
of the church are paid as they fall due.
1 believe the church should quit dun
ning the people for money. A lack of
Judgment on our part in thu appeals
and application has often been de
structive. I believe in teaching our
people how to give. I favor having a
collector, one of a rellned, neat ap
pearance. This collector should be a
mini, but If a nian Is not easily ob
tainable, then get a good woman col
lector. The family scandals and dif
ferences should be kept out of church,
and the nuances should be brought in.
After the collector Is appointed district
the town and have the districts divid
ed. Put several collcrtor.s under a chief
collector and have him report at least
one u quarter. I advocate printed
envelopes to bo turned in monthly,
with thirteen envelopes for the year In
case one Is lost. And change the print
ing of these envelopes. The people .no
tlrrd of reading yiur after year 'The
Lord lovcth a cheerful giver,' anil surli
inscriptions. Km li member should
have a number, tills number should
be on the envelope and on a chart
hung on the wall of Ihe entrance loom,
No name should appear on the chait,
thut can be kept by the treasurer; but
the chart should have the contribution
promised by the bearer of the number
In black ink and what he has uetunlly
paid lu red Ink. Mo.-t people are more
afraid of their eliuuli yows than any
thing else. 1 believo that an examina
tion of every ollicer of the church
fahuold be made to ascertain his ability
to handle tlie allalrs and liuances of
the church. Uvcry trustee should be
examined befoie he is givm the power
to handle and perhaps squander the
money thut lias been so hard to raise.
1 would rather have lull peisons in my
church give a dollar a year than have
one person who gives .lui), lor lie is I
bound to say more and dictate more
than all the rebt put together."

BURGLARS CRACK SAFE.
Tho Black Diamond Coal Company's
Strong Box Wrecked by Dynamite.
Soliii! time bcfoie dawn yesterday
moinlng cracksmen visited the oflice of
tho Muck Diamond Coal company, on
North Helm out street. Tho sinall safe
In the oillce mum wrecked by u charge of
dynamite, and $,".il7 lu cash secured,
this being nil that was In the safe.
Tho safe-breakers were very evident
ly uuiutourH in the work, or else their
methods are different from tho usual
run of the fraternity, for they did a
most unworkmanlike job and gave
themselves much more work than was
seemingly necessary. The safe that
was broken Into Is but about thirty
Inches high unci but twenty-one inches
wide. Yet enough dynamite was used
to open it tu get Into a safe of the most
modern burglar-proof construction.
The burglar used a sperm candle to
furnish light. They took a stick oi
dynamite with a fuie and cup from the
company, which bus a supply of such
articles on und. First they pried the
sufe door far enough open with Jimmies
to get the dynamite inside, then plas
tered the keyhole- of the safe and the
crack which the bars hnd made In pry
ing with soap to'keep out the air, and
then touched oil" their lusc. The con
cession blew the safe door off, cracked
the two sides of the safe und wrecked
the interior The cash compartment
contained ?.".i!7 on Monday night, which
was missing yesterday morning when
Ihe Invasion was discovered. It was
pay ibiy ul the oillce yesterday und the
t blocs evidently expected that a large
bundle of money would bo locked in
the safe over night.
No one beard tli explosion and noth
ing was known of the robbery until the
oillce force came to work yesterday
morning. The police are actively nt
work rm thu trail of the burglars, and
it is believed that arrests will s-oon be

The hearing of the cube between

John Forsehner, and his wife, before
'Squire Ktefer on Monday evening, in
which the Forschners were charged
