RECEIVED STOLEN BRASS
Charles Wartoskl and His Son Ar
rested on Saturday Jas. Flynn
Accused of Stealing1 It.
Charles Wartoskl and his son, Simon,
junk dealers whose place of business Is
located on Hickory street near the
Lackawanna river, were arrested and
held under bail Saturday on the charge
of receiving stolen brass. James Flynn,
one of the alleged brass thieves, was
also arrested and hold under bail.
The Delaware, Lackawanna and
Western Hallroad company has had
largo quantities of brass stolen within
the past few weeks despite the fact
that many arrests have been made for
this offense and that special officers
are continually at work trying to run
down the guilty persons.
Special Officers Spellman and Peel
traced some of the brass to Wartoskl's
shop and called one day last week In
the course of their investigation. While
they were in the junk shop Flynn
sauntered in with a dinner pall full of
brass which he offered for sale. It
was found to be brass from Lacka
wanna locomotives and a little further
investigation led to the discovery that
Flynn is employed by Contractor
O'NIel, who breaks up old engines for
the company. This led to Flynn's ar
rest. It was ascertained that Wartoskl had
sold a large quantity of brass to the
Kverhart Brass Works. A search war
rant was secured from Alderman
Ituddy and nearly a wagon load of the
stolen metal was discovered on the
scrap heap. The officials of the com
pany operating the works admitted
having purchased the brass from War
toskl but said they were suspicious of
the metal and gave him a thirty day
note in payment instead of cash to give
thorn time to investigate.
Wartoskl and his son were arrested
on warrants issued by Alderman
Buddy and both waived a hearing anil
entered bail In the sum of $300. Flynn
entered ball in the sum of $300. It Is
understood that a number of other
brass thieves will bo arrested In a few

SERMON DELIVERED BY REV.
DR. M. W. STRYKER.
President of, Hamilton College Spoke
In the Second Presbyterian Church
Last Night, and Drew an Analogy
Botween tho Railroad Engine and
Its Engineer, and the Human Body
and the Individual Reward at tho
End of tho Division for Those Who
Itev. Dr. M. W. Slryker, president of
Hamilton college, preached an analo
gous sermon last night In die Second
Presbyterian church, likening tho
human body and the Individual to a
locomotive and a locomotive engineer,
and showing that the same rules and
regulations which must bo observed by
the latter apply to the former as well.
The doctor took for hfs text Romans.
iia:l, "I beseech you, therefore, breth
ren, by the mercies of God, that ye
present your bodies a living sacrifice,
holy, acceptable unto God. which Is
your reasonable service." After rcfer
llng to the American locomotive as a
Witness to the world of the. enterprise
and power that lies In u free manhood,
Dr. Slryker said:
"What a wonderful thing this thing
of steel ami steam Is. The manufac
ture of locomotives has always been an
evolution, and the machine Itself at
every stage has borne the touch of
mind. Every perfected eontrlvnnce on
a modern locomotive represents a
thought, tho gieat machine Itself Is an
Idea In Iron. Swift or slow, but alwavs
sure, It is a wonderful epitome of man's
control of material things and a won
derful parable showing that the great
forces of nature can be transformed
AROUT Ol'll BODIES.
"Your bodies, like the locomotive, arc
fearfully and wonderfully made. They
are compactly lined, tubed and jolnlcii.
Who can say that they are less ex
pressive of the work of a master me
chanic than is the locomotive? The
Master Mechanic in this instance is
more than a man, and should the en
gineer say to Him, 'Whv hnst thou
made me?' or 'Why am I here?'
"The owner of a. locomotive has the
right to use and the authoilty to con
trol it as he will. It is his, it was made
for him and he can do with it as ho
wills. He puts an engineer In charge
and transfers to him his authority to
run tho engine. It becomes the en
gineer's engine for the time being, and
it Is for him to use or abuse. If he Is
careless or di link, the engine may be
wrecked nnd with It other engines. If
he is wise, he will care for his engine.
He will protect it ami force It to do Its
"But do with it what lie may, he w'lll
be held responsible for it in the end,
and will be called to answer for Its
condition, just as you and I will be
called upon to answer for our stcward
shlp of that intricate, wonderful, dan
gerous machine, the human body. We
dare not sav we are not the engineers
and that we are the whole road, be
cause we each of us know that our con
trol of this human engine is but n
delegated control and our authority but
an authority vested in us by God.
MAKE NO PROGRESS.
"I suppose all of you are familiar
with the models of locomotives which
wo sometimes see enclosed in glass
cases. You drop a coin in the slot and
the wheels move, but the little engine
stands still. How many of us there are
who have motion, but who make no
progress. A pathetic story causes us
to feel and move, and we just begin to
make a fair show when we suddenly
"Oh, let us couple on to the cais,
forty or sixty of them, according to the
load. Let us send more steam to our
cylinders and less to our whistles. Let
us bite the track and keep out of the
repair house as much as possible. Let
us run on the track and not off. The
rails are God's commandments. There
is nothing more pitiable than to see n
great engine off the track and out of
use for the time.
"Let us remember to heed orders, no
matter when or how they come. If the.v

never color blind, that wo may see the

many burstetl boilers and shattered

"If we follow these directions, we
may be sure that when we slow down
at the end of the division, panting but
punctual, the manager of the road will
not forget us, though we may not be
noticed by the pnssengers.
"Yield your bodies, my friends, as a
living sacrifice acceptable unto God.
That Is what you are In the world for.
There is danger, of course, but will you
shirk danger? Work, but you ate men

should be ready to die with your hand
on the throttle for God's cause. Your
engine may become worn out, but re
member that when It does so you will
receive a better one."
TOOK CARBOLIC ACID.
Georgo Poarch, Despondent Because
Out of Work, Attempted Suicide
on Saturday Night.
George Poarch, an eldeily German
who has been boarding for some time
with Jacob Klefer, of 115 Prospect ave
nue, attempted suicide shortly before
midnight on Saturday night by taking
carbolic acid. He will probably re
cover. Poarch had been despondent for some
weeks because of his failure to se
cure employment and had been con
tinually worrying about the welfare of
his four little children. He was out
on Saturday night and came in shortly
after 11 o'clock. He went directly to
Ills room and shortly afterwards the
members of the family heard him
struggling fiercely and crying for as
sistance. Going up-stalrs they found him
writhing on the floor In great' agony
w llli an ounce bottle labelled "carbolic
acid" clutched In bis hand. Dr. Webb
was summoned and rendered all the as
sistance possible until the arrival of
the Lackawanna hospital ambulance.
Poarch was removed to that Institu
tion where It was said last night that
he would probably recover. He Is sul
len and morose and won't talk to any
of the hospital attendants.

standing llieii ii"iulitio!i with .leans for three

Ills Kingdom would resemble that of Puld and

and fie diclples of Clnlst Imbibed It, and ad
