Protestant Episcopal Outgoing Mis
sionaries. The Missionary Society of the Pro
tectant Episcopal church, through Its
Bener.il secretary, the Itcv. Arthur S.
Lloyd, called together at Now York the
moit and women under appointment to
sail this fall for the missions of that
chutch for a short conference. The
meetings were held nt the Church Mis
sions House on July 23.
On the evening of the same day a
farewell service was held at the Church
of the Holy Apostles, Ninth avenue and
Twenty-eighth street, for these outgo
ing missionaries. Hlshop Burgess, cor
responding Secretary John W. Wood,
and the rector of tho church, the Hev.
It. U Paddock, together with several
or those soon to sail, made addresses.
Twenty missionaries go out this fall,
all but one of these for the first time.
Their destinations are Alaska, the Phil
ippines, Japun and China.
Mormon Missionaries at Work.
Fourteen hundred Mormon mission
aries are at work In this country alone,
with GOO, at least, In other lands. From
the mining regions of Pennsylvania
comes this pitiful word: "It seems to
l'ne that nil western Pennsylvania Is
turning to the Mormon faith." Within
n short time two Mormon fathers in
Utah have sold their daughters Into
polygamy, one receiving a cow and a
calf nnd the other three or four acres
of land in return. There Is marked ac
tivity in the Mormon church Itself nt
tho present time, especially in the line
of organizing young people's societies.
There Is no lack of money for Mor
mon work. Does the tithing house fall
to yield what Is wanted? Then all that
Is necessary is for the heads of the
church to Issue an order of this kind:
"Brother So-and-So will nt once furn
ish $1,000 for the sending out of a mis
sionary." The funds are forthcoming,
no matter at what cost of sacrifice and
labor. The "brother" dares not refuse,
for the church holds his business and,
quite probably, his life In Its tighten
ing grip. Christian Advocate.
Rev. C. B. Henry Transferred.
Tho vacancy caused by the with
drawal of Rev. Walter A. Wagner from
the pastorate of the Methodist Episco
pal church at Luzerne Borough, has
been filled by Rev. Dr. Griffin, the pro
siding elder, who has appointed Rev.
Clinton B. Henry, pastor at Taylor, to
succeed Rev. Mr. Wagner.
Rev. Mr. Henry was the unanimous
choice of the committee of the Luzerne
Borough church and will begin his
work in the new field under favorable
conditions. He is a graduate of Wy
oming Seminary and the Drew Theo
There will bu no preaching services at
the Puritan Congregatlonallst church,
either tomorrow morning or evening.
Sunday school will, however, be held at
2 o'clock in the afternoon.
Tho Chautauqua Assembly ana
School of Methods at Carmel Grove Is
attracting the attention of large num
bers of Methodists. Today the spe
cial feature is Bishop Fowler's great
lecture on "Great Deeds of Great Men."
To tho efforts of Rev. Dr. J. B. Sweet,
presiding elder of the Blnghamton dis
trict, Is due much of the singular suc
cess of this year's assembly.
The United Brethren Board of Mis
sions at Its recent annual meeting
made appropriations amounting to $2S,
r23, of which $14,295 was for the home
field, $3,000 for Porto Rico, $5,000 for
Japan, $4,000 for Africa, and $1,000 for
Germany. The -73 homo missions re
turn an average membership of 5,638
in the congregations and 4,022 In the
Sunday schools. Twenty-three new
missions were opened last year, 22 new
churches organized, and 4 parsonages
and 12 church houses built. The total
receipts of the board for the year were
$92,233. The corresponding secretary
was authorized by the board to secure
means for tho support of Individual
missionaries from local churches.
A vacancy In the episcopate of the
United Brethren church having oc
curred through the death of Bishop
Hott, It became the constitutional duty
of the remaining bishops to provide for
the appointment and holding of the
annual conferences comprising the va
cant episcopal district. In the absence
of specifications of the method of pro
cedure, the bishops mailed a blank bal
lot to each member of tho last general
conference, nnd were guided by the re
turns In making the appointment. The
highest number of votes was cast for
George M. Matthews, D. D and he
was accordingly designed bishop pro

.of tho, Dlvlno presence, whero worship
was appointed to be publicly conducted.
When Moses and Aaron came forth to
bless the people, the assembly shouted
for Joy uiul all fell on their fuces In token
'of their humility. Nothing of this sort
had, ever been witnessed In Israel, it was
the beginning of that now dispensation
which should promote tho spiritual wcl

teen centuries. Hopes were kindled In all
hearts. The unity and perpetuity of tho
nation were Involved, and tho high pur
poso of God was to be served In ntul hy
the methods of tho tnbcrnar.lo. Withal
the forms and ceremonies there to bo In
troduced wero most ot them lyplcnl of
tilings to come In tho new dispensation
when Messiah should appear and conduct
mora spiritual worship by simpler meth
ods.' Thcso wero thercforo good reasons
for entering with reverence Into that
which had been appointed. Tho priests
were responsible for proper behavior.
orFKNSE. Ono would hardly expect
that on tho day following tho Joyous ser
vices of tho tahornaelo sin would ngaln
appear In Israel. But tho perversity of
human nature was destined to exhibit it
self again. Nndab and Ahlhu, tho first
and second born of the four sons of
Aaron (Numbers, 111, 2-t), took their cen
sers, put Inconso therein, and offered
strango flro before tho Lord. In this they
committed- sevcrnl offenses. It Is not
prnbablo that Inconso might bo offered at
nil tlmo (Leviticus, xvl, 1-3). Besides,
tho priests wero to servo singly and by
turns. (Luke, 1, 9.) Neither had thcso
two a right to enter the tabernnclo that
was tho privilege of Moses nnd Aaron
only, and they wero only assistants to
tho latter, to follow his Instructions. (Le
viticus, Ix, 12-23). Moses had the custody
ot tho lnccnso (Exodus, xxxlx, 3S), nnd,
as, their act wns Irregular, they took some
not consecrated (Kxodus, xxx, 9), and, for
burning It, they took lire that had not
been on tho altar. (Revelations, vlll, 5.)
All this was a rash, Irreverent nnd con
temptuous treatment of sacred things.
AVhy did they act thus? Wo may not
discern their motives. Many conjectures
have been made. The more common
opinion is that they were proud of tho
new honor that had come to them, as If
they had forgotten that they wero sinful
men, subordinates to the high priest, sub
ject to law.
PUNISHMENT. A fearful visitation,
from God came upon theso men while
they were offering Incense. Flro came
forth nnd struck them both down dend.
This fire whs the symbol ot Divine pres
ence and wrnth. (Deuteronomy, iv, 21,)
On tho day beforo It consumed the sacri
fice. Now it Is directed toward the of
llct.'ttlng priest. Other cases of Its de
stroying power arc recorded. (Numbers,
xvl, 35.) To us this seems to have been
a severe punishment. We might bu dis
posed to plead that these young men
were Inexperienced, hnvlng been but lit
tle tlmo in office; that they wero eiltled
to another trial, or at least time to re
pent; thnt because of their relation to
Moses and Aaron and because only two
priests would be left, they ouglit to have
been spared; that It was n pity to tako
them away childless (Numbers, 111, 4), nnd
so cut oft their name forever. But wo
must remember that God had declared
His purpose to destroy Individual trans
gressors (Exodus, xxxll, 33), so that there
had been nmplo warning. Their position
ought not to shield them, the moro exalt
ed the offender, the greater should be the
penalty. Furthermore, the Israelites
wero under schooling. A few days before
they went over to Idolatry. They must
now by a severe lesson, not likely to be
forgotten (Numbers, xxvl, Gl), be made to
know God's purpose to secure obedience
nnd reverence, without which Ills plan
for this people can never bo accom
plished. REASON. This great calamity tho
Instant death ot two priests while In tho
tabernacle engaged In service must havo
produced great consternation among all
classes. What did it mean? Tho ques
tion doubtless was upon every lip. Moses,
the servant nnd mouthpiece ot God. steps
forward to explain. With tho utmost
calmness and simplicity he vindicates
God and lays bare the offense which 'has
thus awakened Ills wrnth. Ho speaks to
Aaron, his brother, who. as father of
tho deceased, was most afflicted, and who,
as high priest, needed to understand this
sad event. "This Is In accordance with
tho Lord's own utterance." ho said, re
ferring probably to several declarations.
AVhat were they? "t will bo sanctified
In them that como nigh me." that Is, tho
priests, "that I may bo glorified beforo
all tho people." (Exodus, xlx. 22.) It was
not to be expected thnt religion among
tho masses would rench any higher plain
than It did among the ministers. So In
after years (Isaiah, 111, 11) holy men of
fering holy service In a holy place
(Ezeklcl, xlll, 13), Is the best guarantee of
popular religion. Aaron listened to his
brother's words and hold his peace.
BURTAL. Tho bodies ot the dead must
be removed from tho tnbernaclo and
burled. Moses gave Instructions concern
ing this matter, that wero calculated to
observo tho proprieties of tho place and
the occasion, minister somewhat to tho
feelings of the bereaved, and protect the
causo of God against any ovlls that might
arise. Michael and Ellzaphnn (Exodus,
vl, 32), sons of Uzzlel, Aaron's uncle, wero
called to conduct tho funeral rites. It
wns proper that they should havo charge,
because, being Levites (Numbers, I,
47-50), their business was to take care of
the tabernacle, and, consequently, to re
movo from It anything not properly be
longing In it. They proceeded to dls
chargo their duty in a quiet, unostenta
tious manner. Thoy carried the bodies
out of the camp (Luke, vll, 24), becnuso
thoy could not bo burled within. (Acts,
v, .) And thoy wero laid away In their
priest's coats, thus 'signifying that their
oftico perished with thorn. The wholo
ceremony was well suited to express
humblo submission to God, to show duo
regard for the tabernacle nnd Its Insti
tutions, nnd withal, to lay the dead
awuy with decent respect.
MOURNING. In thoso days ns now,
enstorn people were extravagant In their
expression of sorrow. Tho hopo of an
other life did not Illumine tho gravo, and
death In any form was regarded a calam
ity. (II Samuel, xvlll, 33.) On this occa
slon Moses Interfered, that tho mourning
might not in any wlso disturb tho re
ligious Interests of tho congregutlon.
Aaron nnd his two soni wero forbidden
to join In tho demonstrations of grief,
Thoy wero not to go out of tho taber
nacle, or to rend their clothes (Exodus,
xxvlll, 42-43), or to uncover their heads;
that Is, remove their bonnetB. (Exodus,
xxvlll. 40 ) Tho reason assigned for this
Interdiction was that tho anointing oil
wns upon them (Exodus, xxlx, 7), that Is,
they had been consecrated to tho priest
hood, and thoy must not leavo tho duties
of their otllce, even to bury a son or
brother. This wus afterwards enacted as
a permanent law (Leviticus, xxl, 1, 10-12;
Numbers, vl, 7.) Tho service of tho sanc
tuary must not bo suspended. Tho priest
must bo a constant Intercessor .(Num
bers, xvl, ICJ So was tho prophet In af
ter centuries. (Ezoklcl, xxiv, 10-17.) And
Moses gave a solemn warning, "Lest yo
die," and, fearing that thoy should bo
visited us Nndab and Ablhu had been,
tho father and brother obeyed. But while
theso three wero not permitted, the peo
ple gave forth their walling for tho dead
after tho oriental habit, and the whole
somo Instructions of God wus Impressed
upon tho popular mind und conscience,
INTOXICANTS.-Kvcry new experience
furnished opportunity for fuller Instruc
tion. Whenevor the people displayed
weakness or sin, God mado them know
moro of His power and hollnoss. Hence,
the religion of the Bible Is progressive,
advancing as mun Is able to apprehend
the ways of God. And so tho sin of Na
dab and Ablhu furnished a, favorable oc
casion for the announcement ot a new
law, Tho Lord spoke directly to Aaron
and charged him and his sons not to use
wine or strong drink when they went Into
the tabernacle. That was made a per
petual statute. The ronpo-i ?! h that
they might ho ablo to distinguish be
tween the holy nnd unholy, ami that" they
might bo qualified to teach tho people.
(Deuteronomy, xx, 8.) Hero In a plain
recognition of tho evil Influence of In
toxicants. A priest needs a clear mind
nnd must abstain. (Mnlnchl, II, 7.) Noth-,
lug Is said concerning thcso drinks nt
other times. In thin Instance tho purpose
Is, not to protect tho Individual, but tho
ordinances of religion. Somo havo In
ferred, and tho Inference Is natural, that
Nndab and Ablhu were Intoxlcnled. But
this may havo been a precaution' tnken
without rofcrcnco to them. Tho law thus
Instituted Is accomplished by tho warn
ing, "Lest ye die." It furnishes an Im
portant chapter In tho Blblo Idea of tem
porifncc. CONCLUSION. Bishop Hull makes this
highly aprcclatlvo comment: "In tho ser
vice of God It Is n dangerous thing to do
clltio from Ills own Institutions. Wo
have to do with a God who Is wise to
prescribe His own worship, Just to re
quire what Ho has prescribed, und pow
erful to revongo what He has not pro
scribed." It Is a gravo responsibility
which they tissumo who conduct public
worship (I Corinthians, xlv, 40), and they
who attend, ns well as they who minister,
ought to take heed to their manner nnd
spirit. (Eccleslaptes, v, 1.)

It Made No Difference.
The following Incident Is vouched for
by tho Globe, of Atchison, Kan.: MA po
liceman found a hotol guest roaming
about the streets in his sleep a few
nights ugo. Ho started to lead tho man
to Jail, when the stranger protested, 'I
um guilty of no wrongdoing, ho said. 'I
iim u somnambulist.' 'It don't mako no
dlffcrcnco what church you belong to,'
returned tho officer. 'You can't do no

"Wall Btrtet Rrltw.
, Now York, Aug. 8. Tho opening deal
ings In the market today showed thnt tho
glamor of supposed plan for merger of
Uouthorn trunk Hues railways had taken
hold upon tho Imagination ot the specu
lative world and most of tho stocks which
were violently affected yesterday Blurted
oft on n ficsh upward, movement today.
But It also became quickly ovldcnt that
tho movement, was overrunning Itself;
Either tho clcslro to take profits or tho
belief that prices had been lifted to abOvo
the Intrinsic valtto of stocks led to prompt
reactions in Loulsvtllo und Nashville, Il
linois Central und conspicuously in
Hocking Valley. Tho last named stock
lost Its opening rlso of this morning nnd
nil of yesterday's sensational gain ns well.
Tho reaction was not so violent In othor
stocks although Rock Island developed a
heavy tono and Colorado Fuel became
weak with considerable sentimental ef
fect upon the general list, It cannot bo
said that tho reaction In tho southern
group materially altered tho genet ul
conviction In tho street thnt Important
developments aro Impending regarding tho
group. Th o difficulty encountered by
Louisville In Its advance above 150 was
attributed to tho fact that that Is the llg
lira ut which tho option Is supposed to bo
hold by J. P. Morgun & Co. to buy tho
control of tho rond. Somo of tho largest
selling of the southern trunk lines was by
brokers usually employed by tho specula
tive leader whoso publicly proclaimed
"bullishness" wns a forerunner ot yes
terday's violent advances, Probably somo
disappointment ' was felt because tho of
ficial announcement of tho ncqulsltlon of
tho Chicago and Eastern Illinois by tho
St. Louis nnd San Francisco contained no
roforenco to tho further extensive projects
which are supposed to lie back of that
operation. In fact no official countenance
could bo secured from any source of yes
terday's many rumors. Among the now
points of strength tho most conspicuous
und most Influential was that in tho Erlo
stocks. No reuson was forthcoming for
their advanco beyond a revival of old ru
mors of largo holdings In tho property
by J. J. Hill and plans for Its Improve
ment by that capitalist. The rise In
Amalgamated Copper seemed to bo pure
ly speculative in Its origin. Other points
of strength wero tho Colorado and South
ern stocks, Texas and Paclllc and a num
ber of minor ntock3. Totnl sales for tho
day, 595,100 shares. Tho bond market was
dull and Irregular. Total sales, par value,
