Regret over the defeat of C. C.
Pratt Is heard on all sides as his
character as a man and his record as
Congressman were above reproach.
His defeat was due to the endorse
ment of Klpp by the managers of
the Keystone movement. Many Re
publicans In their eagerness to
vote for Mr. Berry for Governor,
forgot to place their mark opposite
the name of C. C. Pratt, who was
defeated by about 600 votes.
Religious services were resumed
In ninny of the churches, throughout
the great Commonwealth of Penn
sylvania, last Sunday. Pulpits which
had, for the time being, relegated the
glorious gospel of salvation to the
background, again returned to the
Word of God for their texts and laid
aside for the uonce the yellow Journ
als whence they drew their pre-elec
tlon themes, and from whose pages
they got their sermons, material and
inspiration. Church-goers can again
occupy their pews with the assur
ance that they will hear the old-
fashioned gospel preached.
"When the Devil was sick, the de
vil a monk would be, when the devil
was well, the devil a monk wad he,"
runs an old proverb. We would like
to know if these men, who induced
the clergy to convert their pulpits
Into political rostrums, will be as
faithful attendants upon divine ser
vices when sensational topics will
not be the rule, when the annual
subscription lists are passed around,
when pews are offered . for sale,
when special offerings are to be re
ceived as they were when self in
terest prompted them to frequent the
house of God. Let us wait and see!
I believe in my job. Rev.
Charles Stelzle.
The kind of faith that Dr. Stelzle
expresses here Is, in a very practical
sense, saving faith, according to the
Harrisburg Patriot. It saves men
and women from failure and insures
success. The man who does not be
lieve in his Job will not be faithful
to it nor loyal to his master, wheth
er the job be to win souls or to
mend shoes; whether the master of
the job ho a man or his Maker.
The man who does not believe in
his job Is an unprofitable servant,
whether he is working for himself
or another. Ho does his work so
indifferently that ho la sure to lose
his job. If working for another he
is the first to go when any one has
to go. If in business for himself, he
Is among the first to be overwhelmed
when hard times come.
If ho believes in his job and does
it so well that ho shows he Is cap
ablo of holding a better one, ho Is
sure to get it. There Is always a
Job for efficient and willing hands.
This is not a matter of luck, of in
fluence, or favoritism. It is busi
ness; it is inevitable. There are
practically no exceptions. If the
man who believes In his Job and is
faithful and efficient In it, has an
employer who is too blind to seo his
worth, or too mean and selfish to ac
knowledge it, somo other employer
will recognize it and his turn will
In exalted station or menial po
sition, it is the same. Tho lady who
does not believe in her Job, who does
not use her opportunities to noble
ends; who Is frittering away her life
in social frivolities. Is not really any
happier than tho unfaithful servant
of whom she complains and who does
not believe in her Job either. When
mistress and maid both beliovo In
their jobs they stay together for
years, perhaps for a lifetime, mutu
ally helpful, each honoring tho oth
er. A sure recipe for happiness Is: Be
liovo In your Job, do your level best
In it, so as to bo ready for tho bet
tor ono when it comes.
In a hurry use the Bell.

From Favoritism Will he nl
(rm'o Church Xc.t Tuesday.
Tho Right Reverend Robert Lewis
Paddock, D. D.. who Is to be ono of
the speakers nl tho meeting of the
Archdeaconry of Scrnnton, in Grnce
church, Ilonesdale, next Tuesday,
comes of a rnce of Bishops, but was
himself appointed Bishop of Eastern
Oregon not becnuse his father had
been Bishop In tho then territory of
Washington, or because his uncle
had been tho predecessor of tho
great Phillips Brooks as Bishop of
Massachusetts, but because as soon
nB ho began his work in the ministry,
he showed qualities of most romark-
abio energy and originality. His
very first work Indicated tho estimate
In which ho was hold by his fellow
students, for they chose him to be
the national field-secretary of the
Church Students' Missionary Society
of America, a position which Involv
ed visiting the principal colleges and
universities In tho country and ad
dressing tho students. But it was
when In chargo of a church in tho
lower East Side In New York city
that ho startled the country by a
single-handed defiance of tho police
department because of their heart
less countenancing of tho shameful
traffic in human beings which was go
ing on within tho limits of his par
ish. Powerful helpers Boon camo to
his aid, notably Bishop Pottor, and
the result was a political overturn
In Now York city.
But the most remarkable achieve
ment of tho young clergyman was in
taking what seemed a hopelessly run
down and down town parish, tho
Church of tho Holy Apostles, tho cor
ner of Ninth Avenue nnd 28th street,
New York, and the electrifying Into
It new life. From tho sleepy ship
ping place of a mero handful, it be
came the center of a most varied and
beneficial institutional and social ac
tivity. Clubs of all sorts, homes for
working girls, clnsses for self-Improvement,
civic organizations for the
training of men into better citizen
ship were started and vigorously
maintained and increased by this
tireless and most resourceful and
consecrated leader. And the old
church filled up with worshippers. A
large staff of men and women were
added to help. A real influence for
good was exerted in a quarter of the
city which was most difficult to work
in. From this career of noteworthy
usefulness it was not strange that
such a man should have been chosen
by the House of Bishops to under
take tho most difficult work in sight,
that of organizing and building up
the new missionary jurisdiction of
Eastern Oregon.
Business was at a standstill in
Dickson City while the entire popu
lation of the place paid homage to
