OP THE MASS
REV. W. A. M'KINNEY DISCUSSES
Congregation at Penn Avenue Bap
tist Church Last Night Heard Dis
course Upon the Celebration of the
Mass Rev. McKinney Approves
the Allegorical Idea of the Cere
mony but Characterizes Its Per
formance as Illogical Closer Union
Between Han and God.
"Tho Socrumcnt of Mass," wns the
subject upon which Rev. W. A. Mc
Kinney delivered an eloquent sermon
lust night at the Pcnn avenue Baptht
church. Rev. McKinney commended tho
doctrine of the mass, but found various
points to criticize in the method of its
He prefaced his sermon with a de
scription of tho interior of a Catholic
church and a detailed picturing of the
sacrament of mass, and explained tho
ceremonies of consecration, elevation,
breaking and communion. "The wafer
and wine form, In the Roman church,
a spiritual presence," said Rev. Mc
Kinney, "a presence as of the spirit In
tho body. Christ Is supposed to exist
In the bread nnd wine.
"There are two supreme ideas In the
mass, tho idea of sacrifice and of com
munion. When the elements of the
communion are offered by the priest to
God, the congregation believes that the
sacrifice of Jesus Is actually being held,
that it is a piopltlatory sacrifice. It Is
not a redeeming sacrifice. The cross
did that, but this applies the redemption
to the heart. This whole ceremony Is
in direct contradiction to that para
graph In the epistle to the Hebrews
which says 'A sacrifice shall be made,
once for all.'
"I wish you would try to Imagine
the thoughts of the communicant ns he
goes to the altar rail, after having
confessed his sins, and then comes back
to his seat, after partaking of the host
and chalice. He believes he has par
taken of the flesh and blood of Christ.
Can you imagine his feelings, as he
thinks he encases the body of Christ?
How superior to mundane matters lie
must feel, how far above the sordid
things of life.
"But though this doctrine Is to be
commended, one must say that the sac
rament of mass not only violates our
reason, but violates all the rules of
logic and thought. If the body and
blood of Christ are really present, the
priest has made them so. He has
worked a miracle, which is constantly
being wrought by many men, some of
them, not all, disreputable men. Just
think of it, a man has created god.
"It is not my purpose, however, to
tear down doctrine, but rather to try
to teach the love of Christ. Think of
Christ in man, and the many scriptural
Injunctions which teach us that Jesus
is within. Christian life Is a sacred
thing, and throughout It, we should
ahvoys carry Christ with us. Every
action we do, is the result of impulse
every word we speak comes through a
mouth possessed by Christ.
"How often we are more profane,
more sacrellgious than the devout Cath
olic. How often we degrade the Lord,
by mixing thoughts of Him, with im
pure and base ideas. A spirit of light
ness and frivolity has come into the
church, and makes little of our union
BATTLE GROWING TENDENCY.
"If Christ is in us, It behooves men to
lift themselves up, and battle the grow
ing tendency to belittle Initiatory rites.
Too many persons, nowadays, join
churches, with no religious1 purposes,
but merely for social congeniality or
soclul advancement, ns their highest
and most urgent motives.
"Our bodies are the temples of the
Holy Ghost, and there is in us1 that
most precious thing, the life of Jesus
Christ, entrusted to our care. Let us
come to a realization of the real, vital,
spiritual truth of the reunion of Christ
with human life. Let us cherish It, as
our greater privilege, now and forever
to be truly called His own."
LABOR DAY ARRANGEMENTS.

self, and a silver-plated star as big as

Some delay was caused In getting
bark to the city, owing to spreading
rails, but the party arrived at 9.10 p.
m., somewhat tired, but happy and
well pleased with the day's outing.
The committee of arrangements was

Consumers' lea Company Sues Former
Employes for Damages.
Lewis Glaab and James Shaughnessy
were made defendants in an action to
recover $3,000 damages begun Saturday

Its attorneys O'Brien & Martin.

and 10 years, wero arraigned before
Magistrate Howe, Saturday morning,
chnrged with the larceny of a pair of
$1.50 shoes from Myer Davidow's store,
on Lackawanna avenue.
The two little fellows wept plteously
throughout the hearing, and their
mother, who was present, added to tho
pathos of tho scene, by sobblnc as
though her heart was breaking. While
there was a clear case against the boys,
there wore many extenuating circum
stances, und the children were dis
missed with a reprimand.
One of the boys worked steadily at

The other time was yesterday. Yes

Paddy Carey went 'way back and got
out of sight. To peddle powder to Grid
ley's guns was one thing. To get your

O'Neill brothers have had their pic
tures in all the papers, and In the ex
planation at the bottom of the pictures
It Is stated, invariably, that they are
from Mlnooka, Pa,
Mlnooka, In consequence, is once more
on the map.
To do fitting honor to sons of the vil
lage who had so signally distinguished
themselves and made famous their na
tive heath was a problem. John J.
Coyne, the big man of the village, how
ever, was equal to the occasion. Their
contract with St. Louis forbade them
playing with any other team, but there
was nothing to prevent them from um
piring n game. Accordingly, Mr. Coyne
arranged a game between the Mlnookas
and the Alerts, from McCann's patch,
and the O'Neill brothers were put In to
umpire, alternating between battery
and base decisions.
THEIR DECISIONS "WENT."
If ever there was a game in which
the umpire's decision "went," that
game was this game. Ordinarily, an
umpire In a big game In Mlnooka has
about as good a time as would a coal
and Iron policeman at a mine workers'
picnic in Jessup.
Yesterday, though, It was different.
One of the onlookers from McCann's
patch, a lad named John Maharty,
hissed a decision at third. John Coyne
got him safely aboard a car, by getting

All of Mlnooka and hundreds from
other places turned out to the game.

Mooslcans are extremely jealdus of the

town. The O'Neills were given a big
ovation and bore their honors grace
fully. BANQUET IN THEIR HONOR.
At the conclusion of the game, the
honored visitors were escorted to

Genoa Conchpondcnco Cincinnati Com
mercial. The lottery gambling system! was
created in this city In the eighteenth
century. From Genoa it has spread
over the entire continent of Europe, and
the masses of Austria and Germany
in particular lie entirely under its sway.
The lottery nowadays Is as govern
mental as the sale of opium, and equal
ly as noxious in its InHuence. But It
brings to tho respective governments
millions of pounds sterling regularly
in commission proflts, and It prevails,
The procedure of the "lottery," from
a governmental point of view, Is very
simple. The state declares that a lot
tery Is to bo held for, say $40,000, and
advertisements are Issued to the news

bank checks, are printed, bound up in
volumes, and Issued to tho govern

CAN THE EARTH EXPLODE?
Wo frequently hear the suggestion
thut tho earth may some time explode
from the pent-up forces within, and wo
often read theories about explosions of
heavenly bodies, but tho earth can nev
er explode from Us own pent-up forces.
Under our very feet nt this moment,
between the earth's solid crust and
the molten Interior, there is a pressure
exerted mare than double that which
is capable of being exerted by tho most
powerful dynamite in the world. It is
u generally uccepted and probably true
theory that the whole interior of the
earth Is u molten mats of rock und
metals heavier than tho crust above,
and upon which the crust floats in a
relatively thin layer. Tho thickness of

the e'arth's crust within the great con
tinents Is probably from fifty to ono
hundred miles. If we estimate the
pressure exerted by tho weight of one
mile of earth and rock at ton thous
and pounds, which Is well within the
truth, then fifty miles of earth would
exert a pressure of about five hundred
thousand pounds, and one hundred
miles would exert a pressure of one
million pounds to the square- nch,
Now, ns the pressure capable of being
exerted by tho most powerful dynamite,
exploded in a spaco equal to Its own
volume, Is abotU three hundred thous
nns to three hundred and fifty thous
and pounds, It is evident that f the
whole Interior of the earth were filled
with dynamite, nnd exploded, It would
be capable of exerting a, pressure oifly
about one-third greut enough to false
the continents or to disrupt the crust
