been eases discovered of old persons',

great care was taken in the selection

Humor In Last Night's Sermon
Dr. Stauij'h in his sermon at the tab
ernacle wist night sought to reach his
crowd rather by using humor and sar
casm tibam by employing pathos, and
his sermon was full of the comedy
■which he had put aside for the past
week or so of more sober preaching.
He took his text from St. Paul's de
fiance of political authority in t!he
cause of righteousness, and secondarily
from tlhe martyrdom of John the Bap
"When Paul went preaching,'' said
the evangelist with a side ftdance at
the ministers' section, "he might have
talked about the works of Rome and
Greece. He could have talked about
Socrates and all the ancient poets, and
have spokeiu about babbling broqks
and all such sweet nothingness. Burt
what dad he do? He prej.-hed right
eousness, that's whiat he did. Right
Good Night Nurse!"
"Why, if you want to stir up the
devil among officeholders like theso
here in Pennsylvania, just preach
righteousness to them. Talk on ballot
stuffing for instance. Couldn't a fellow
raise the devil in Pennsylvania on that

subject alone? Suppose you preac.li on
the subject of the necessity for a
political pull Do get on Capitol Hall.
Good night nurse!
"Those are subjects, which if a
preacher would let loose on them, he'd
loose his pastorate inside of thirty
days. I know, because I've tried it.
I've just splattered and splashed a
little here ou that matter, but some
of the splashing hit all right, and I
heard about irt.
"Temperance is another good sub
ject to preach on. What would happen
if they preached temperance to that
official at Washington' who, it is said,
tried to make a speech at Detroit and
was so drunk that the lights had to be
turned out and the audience dismissed
Paul Had Hard Task
"Even in my place, it is easy to
preach against sin compared with Paul.
When the man w*ho you are preaching
to could cut off your head, it takes a
lot of nerve to stand up and hand it
out in packages as Paul did. He never
got a call to the first church of that
city, not on your tin.
"I believe to-day, with all due re
spect to my brethren of the ministry,
that we need to put more of the spirit,
of St. Paul in our preaching Don't
tel ma that John the Baptist made a
mistake. He made a mistake if it was
to save his neck, but it would be bet
ter for the gospel if more Christians
made mistakes like that. Would that
(lod gave me more the spirit of St. Paul
and of John the Baptist."
At this point in his sermon the
preacher digressed in order to give his
opinions of the well-known painting,
''Bock of Ages," which he called the
greaitest travesty on religion" he has
"Rock of Ages" Called a Lie
"Thait picture of the beautiful young
lady in a night gown —notice they ncv
ev take old maids for such pictures—
hanging on to tho stone cross with a
' claon and plaekid' expression on her
face is a lie. That is no more the
Rock of Ages than Plymouth Rock is.
No wonder people have gotten an idea
thait this is a finger-nail religion and
that they are likely to let go at any
''lf I were to paint the Rock of
Ages I would have electric wires coin
ing down to the cross from the skies
and having the girl take hold of the
cross as you take hold of a battery.
When she takes hold of the rock the
rock takes hold of her.' *As soon as you
take hold of the Lord he will take
hold of you, and hold you tight."
Usual Number of Converts
The evangelist appealed particularly
to the railroad men to hi't the trail, tell
ing them of the perils of their fives on
the road and warning them that to put
off a decision may be dangerous.
There were about eighty trail-hitters,
the average number, including repre
sentatives of the railroaders and of the
Harrisburg Rotary Club, members of
which were also among the guests of
