PPLAUSE seldom
breaks out 1 n
church. When It
does the pulse of a
nation is felt. That
Is whnt happened
In a Chicago church
during tho heat of
the Vonnziiplnn v.
JwStl cltement. Rev. My-
w ... iiuj ULy UL
tho Enclewood
J3aptlst congregation stirred his au
ditors to applauso when he said: "When
weak humanity Is wronged wo havo a
right to resent it, and I bcllovo with
the force of arms." Much applauso fol
lowed. Mr. Hnynes preached from tho text:
"Think not I nm come to send peaco
on earth; I como not to send peaco,
but a sword." Luke, 11, 1-32. He said,
among other things:
"Why do ministers who mistake
weakness for piety, Bay that war can
never be justifiable among civilized
nations? To say that a Christian
should never cngago In warfare, ex
cept that moral warfare which Is waged
In his own bosom, is to say that a man
whom God has equipped with muscle,
brain, skill and a prophetic vision of
cdnsequenccs should rest in supine qui
escence and allow wrong to trample
upon right; atheism and paganism to
supplant Christianity. It is tho most
pusillanimous twaddle, and Is unwor
thy tho utterance of an Intelligent man.
"I assume that wars are sometimes
Justifiable, and that a Christian may
bear arms and do no violence to the
Christian character. We are now In
tho midst of wars and rumors of wars.
Tho crash of cannon breaks In upon
Christmas cantatas. Tho echo of
Christmas bells is drowned by tho
bugle's war clarion. Tho cries of the
dying and outraged come leaping over
the sea and choke our Christmas mel
ody. In the midst of our peaco an
thems we are forced to face the awful
realities of war. Thousands of hunted,
trembling Armenians send up piteous
appeals for protection. Tho white
faces of tho outraged dead look re
proachfully from the shallow graves
which scarcely cover their shame, and
trouble the conscience of every decent
man. Hunted, oppressed, outraged,
butchered at the very altar of their
God, they turn their blood-stained faces
toward Christendom and ask: 'Is It
Christian to allow us thus to be mur
dered like so many boasts in a pen?'
As tho waves of the sea ripple from
tho reefs at Key West they bring tho
echo of tho strife in Cuba, where a band
of patriots are striving to throw off tho
yoke of a nation whoso whole history
lias been one of oppression, bigotry and
shame, whoso annals are stained by the
names of such monsters as Pizarro,
Cortez, Phillip II., and the infamous
Duke of Alva. What inherent right,
what divine right, Spain has to demand
revenue from Cuba to support her in
dolence and profligacy, I am unable to
tell. Is it wrong for men to light un
der these circumstances?
"I read in tho dally papers that the
pastors of Now York last Sunday in
dulged in wholesale denunciation of tho
president's war message. They de
clare it would be a crime for two Chris
tian nations liko England and America
to go to war. Perhaps these gentle
men think tho war of 177G was a crime.
Perhaps they think our French friends
aided and abetted a crime when they
extended to the distracted colonics n
helping hand. If all this bo truo we
ought to tear down tho stately pile at
Bunker Hill, for it stands only to per
petuate tho memory of Infamy. Will
the Gotham preachers tell me whether
our ancestors did right or wrong at
Concord, Lexington and Vorktown?
They may assume that we were fight
ing for liberty while tho present Vene
zuelan dispute is over a boundary line.
That makes no difference. Human
rights are involved in tho Venezuelan
dispute, and whenever human rights
are Ignored liberty is assailed. Hu
man rights are human lights whether
in America, Armenia, Cuba or Vene
zuela. I want no war with any nation,
but I believe wo might do meaner,
tttser, more unchristian things than go
to war. What? Do a more unchris
tian thing Umn kill a man? What
can it bo? To stand by, as the Chris
tian world is to-day, and let tho bar
barous Turk murder men and outrage
women by tho thousands. It Is a blot
on Christian civilization that wo allow
such atrocities to continue. I bellovo
Almighty God is on tho side of right.
I do not care a fig for the Monroe doc
trine only as It becomes tho expression
of a great principle what ought to pre
vail. If the Monroe doctrine says that
England shall not bo nllowed to tram
ple upon tho rights of tho Venezuelan
republic, then I say hurrah for tho
Monroe doctrine. If, on tho other
hand, it says wo must not interfere in
Cuban matters, but permit tho Span
iards to trample upon Cuban rights,
then I say avaunt, Monroo doctrine.
Let us enunciate a doctrino that will
support the rights c-f the children of
men everywhere on the face of God's
earth. I have no undue longings for n
fight with England. She Is a good
fighter. Her people havo many sterling
qualities for which I have profound
respect; but there are some reflections
which arlso before me as we stand
face to face with this mighty people.
When I call to mind the fact that she
forced opium Into China at the mouth
of t cannon against the protests of the
fttf'U' ftfe
wisest and best of the Chinese citizens,
thus debauching a nation for trade;
when I remember that she sacrificed
General Gordon, one of God's noblemen,
rathor than sacrifice hor own aggran
dizement; whon I rolled that she has
power to at once put an end to Ar
menian atrocities, but dllly dallios on
account of Turkish trade and tho 500,
000,000 Turkish bonds hold by English
subjocts; when I seo hor rapacity In
seeking to rob a little South American
province of hor rightful territory, I am
led to bellovo that this country might
bring far more reproach upon Itself
than by resisting with arms such gold
worshiping, trade-monopolizing, Jub-tlcc-donylng
"I cannot bo forced Into the belief
thnt God expected no Christian to tako
part In wars. When personnl insult is
offered it is Christian to bo pacific,
trnnqull, forgiving; when weak, help
less humanity is wronged wo have a
right to resist It, and, 1 believe, with
forco of arms. Only by this course
shall evil doers bo mnde to shrink and
bestial natures ho conquered. How ar
dently we all desire peace; not a shame
ful peace, but a glorious pence!"

Ilornmn Doctor,
Mdllo. Iloglarlon, the young Armenian
lady doctoi4 of whose'hlstory our Vien
na correspondent lately gave an ac
count, delivered a lecture in that city
last night before nn nudlcnco composed
chiefly of persons Interested In the
question of woman's higher education,
says the London Daily News. Her sub
ject was "The Women of Armenia and
Their Mohammedan Sisler3." Our cor
respondent telegraphs: "Mdllo. Mar
garltt Iloglarlon did not hesitate to op
pose Prof. Albert's assertions as to tho
Inferiority of women, as far as tho Ar
menians are concerned. She said that
when an Armenian looks around him he
can certainly not say thnt all ho sees
Is man's handiwork, for it is rather
Tho products of industry which havo
made the country famous silks and
wools, carpets and embroideries are
all made by women in Armenia from
the treatment of tho raw material and
the designs to the final processes of
manufacture. No male Armenian claims
to havo had a part In this work, nor
docs he dream of looking down upon
woman as an inferior being. There is
not a single proverb in all tho dialects
of the country that ridicule woman,
though there are innumerable ones in
her praise. Armenians say: "Let wom
en learn all they can they will be so
much moro useful, and we will marry
them all tho moro willingly." Dr.
Beglarion mentioned that women were
now to be admitted to the Petersburg
university, nnd promised herself great
results from this liberal concession, as
hundreds of families, whose girls had
passed through tho grammar schools
and seminaries in Tillis, declared they
should send them to study medicine,
and so obtain reliof from tho terrible
dearth of doctors in Armenia.

Pat Clancy was Intemperate to a
marked degree. In vain did Pat's
friends tell him he was killing him
self; he continued his downward course
until the grim enemy brought him up
with a round turn.
For the widow Clancy, who was in
consolable, tho only comfort was to seo
that tho final ceremony was as elabor
ate and costly as possible. To this end
Mr. Muldoon, tho funeral director, wait
ed upon her to carry out her wishes
as profitably as possible. His deferen
tial manner was only surpassed by his
business-like questions.
"An' how many carriages would yees

"Arrah, they can't bo too mony fur
Pat," was the answer.
"A sphlendld casket, 01 sh'poso?"
"The folnest money can buy."
"What kolnd uv trlmmin's, mum?"
"Uv what?" Mrs. Clancy turned a
shade paler.
"Trlmmin's, mum."

iJthough tho wondpeekor L indus
trious, provident nnd peaceful to s not
to bo trilled with or tyrannized over
with Impunity, as tho followlufc Inci
dent will show, says tho Portland Itcss:
A companion and I on an AugUrt dny
not long slnco pitched our camp at a
spring on tho table lands of tho rldgo
dividing OJal from Santa Clara valloy.
About tho spring stands a large grovo
of llvo oaks. Iu one of these nod far
from tho tent door n pair of woodpeck
ers hnd, for years, no doubt, made their
dwelling place. Somewhat shy of us at
first, tho birds In a few days paid llttlo
attention to our presence. It has fre
quently amused us of a sultry after
noon as we lounged upon the buftnlo
robes laid on tho shaded grass to ob
servo tho birds, with whoso labors tho
warmth appeared to havo llttlo to do.
Wo had camped there a week or ton
days when before daylight one morning
we heard a commotion about tho homo
of our staid neighbors. Our attention
wns attracted by their shrill outcries
and tho whir of tholr wings nmong tho
branches overhead. It had no sooner
grown light enough to sec than wo
pushed back the flap of tho tent door
and peered out to ascertain tho causo
of disturbance. It soon became appar
ent that a littlo tocolote, or ground owl,
at tho approach of day had taken lodg
ing in tho hollow occupied by the wood
peckers, to their consternation. Hut
the return of day brought coiirago to
tho rightful owners and they resolutely
set nbout finding means to eject tho
invaders. They tried bluffing awhilo
about tho only aperture to tho
hollow tree but to little purposo other
than to causo tho tecoloto to pock at
them when they appeared to be about
to thrust themsolvcs In.
At last, finding that neither threats
nor entreaties were likely to be effect
ive nnd resolved that If thoy wero to bo
deprived of their homo it would bo tho
last of that tyrannical owl, tho wood
peckers brought presently from an
other part of the grovo an oak ball of
tho size of tho aperture and, driving
it tightly into the hole, withdrew to an
other hollow tree, leaving tho bird of
prey hermetically sealed up. After
several dayB, when we started to return
to San Buenaventure, tho ball was still
In the hole and the woodpeckers, set
tled In their now home, wero going
about their business as If thero had
never been a tecolote.
A Uenr'd Non,
A sportsmnn's life was once saved by
his knowledge of one of tho physical
peculiarities of the bear. Gen. Hamil
ton, who tells tho story in his "Sport
in Southern India," was out on a bear
shooting expedition with a brother of
ficer. The beaters drove the bear from
his hlding-plnce and a shot from the
officer throw 'him on tho ground; but
ho got up, with a grunt, and mado
As tho bear passed an open bit of
ground Gen. Hamilton again fired but
mloscd and tho boast turned on him.
When ho was within a few yards tho
general gave him the other barrel. As
this did not stop him Hamilton started
to run but tripped over a rock and fell
flat on his fnce.
The bear was upon him Instantly and
the sportsman, looking over his shoul
der, saw into tho bear's mouth as tho
bruto made a grab at him. Tho animal
caught him by tho thigh and pinned
him. Knowing the bear's nose is very
sensitive Hamilton hit him several
bard blows on tho nose. The bear, un
ablo to enduro tho pain, let go, and
before ho could get hold again, Hamil
ton was up tho hill.
His companions ran up and killed the
bear by a ball through his heart. But
the bear's claws had laid open Hamil
ton's thigh to tho bone and ho was In
bed for a month.

Miss NolhcrPole'B roles this year will
bo even more exacting than they wore
last. "Cainllle," "Deniso." "Carmen!"
Could any actress bo moro unstrung
by any lino of parts?
"Deniso" Is to America a novelty, for
Although It has twice been tried here, It
was neither time a success, a result that
may easily be put down to tho attempts
mado to fix it over.
It was Jan. 19, 1885, that "Doniso"
was produced nttho Comedio Francaiso,
where It was given ono hundred nnd
aoven times that season, making a great
success, with a cast in which Mile. Bnr
tet played tho title role, with tho
charming Relchemborg as Juvonllo,
and Worms, Coquelln alne, Coquelln
endet, Got, Blanche Plorson, and Paul
ino Grainger nil in tho cast.
Two American actresses havo tried
"Deniso," both hampered by poor or
slons. Thoro wns the production at
Daly's theater, New York, ton years
ago. when Clarn Morris played "Den
Ise," supported by Joseph Hnworth, and
a later production at Palmer's, when a
version by Will Stuart ("Walslngham")
wns called "Fair Fame," and Linda
DIetz played "Denlse." Still few in
New York even remember either ver
sion, and, until Miss Nothersolo's, nono
has been seen outside New York, and
as the play 1b In Dumns' best stylo, In
tensely Interesting and brilliant In con
versation, it ought to bo a great success.
As a matter of history, it may he
noted that Miss Nethersolo gave hor
first performance of the part Aug. 28,
at Birmingham, England, nnd also that
Slgnor Ventura onco rend tho play in
French at Chickering hall, in Boston.
Boston has had at ono time this sea
son tho opportunity to admire several
young, pretty nctresses. In Novem
ber, there wero In town Amy Busby, tho
pretty girl who once played with Crane,
and has lately been tho herolno of "The
Fatal Card," enjoying tho long run
which closed November 10, at tho his
toric old Museum; Bertha Crolghton,
who first came into notico as resem
bling Mnrv Anderson, and Maximo
1 Elliot, who was the most plcturesquo
American actress in London last sum-
J ijier; for that matter no player pf the
i year was moro pictured than sho was,
several Illustrations of her appearing in
one issue of one of the weeklies.
In theso days, when actresses aro few,
And the ranks of really promising ones
very thin, nnything as supremely
pretty as Amy Busby cannot pasB with
out hopeful notico. Indeed, ono be
comes Indulgent as well as hopeful, for
it can hardly be said that Miss Busby
has yet shown any special aptitude for
real acting; but she certainly has shown
the ability to become, so far as the sale
of her pictures aro concerned, a very
popular llttlo lady. Yet thoro has been
good reason to be hopeful about Miss
Busby, for the actress who can make
j Constance Neville, in "She Stoops to
Conquer," Interesting, and she did that
two years ago, certainly has Just claims
to tho possession of an actresses' most
delightful characteristic, personal
charm, tho quality that 1b tho very
foundation of the hucccbb of actress
like Ellen Torry, Julia Marlowo, nail
even Sarah Bernhardt.
Miss Crolghton Is not very gone.tilly
known, nnd tho rosomblnnco sho Is Bald

striking as at ono tlmo npponrod to bo

Miss Crolghton became conspicuous

But tho third of November's beauties
was tho most dazzling of nil. It doos
not seem as If It was as long ngo as
May 4, 1891, that, as MIbs Fleetwood,
tho Kentucky heiress of "John Ncod-
hnm's Double," Miss Elliot first ap
peared In Boston, In support of E.S.WI1
lard, nt tho Tremont theater, and that
samo season wo saw her also as Felicia
Umfrnvlllo. In "The Middleman."
Mlsa Elliot Is a Rockland (Mnino)
girl. Sho traces her descent back to a
inlxturo of Irish nnd Spnnlsh Bottlers, a
fact that accounts for her beauty nnd
Miss Elliot remained with Willnrd
two seasons; during the second sho
played tho trying role of Sophia Jopp In
"Judah," Beatrice Solwyn In "A Fool's
Paradise," and Lady Gilding in "Tho
Professor's Lovo Story."
Sho wns then engaged for tho big pro
duction of "A Prodigal Daughter," and
plnyed Kato Malcolm iu "Sister Mary'
with Julia Arthur and Leonard Boyno.
In Soptembor, 1891, she Joined Daly'o
forces, making her dobut as "Heart of
Ruby," In tho adaptation of Judith Gnu
tier's tale of old Jnpan, ono of tho moo
exquisite productions over given in tnis
Among the best work sho hnB dono
with Daly Is Sylvia in "Two Gontlcmon
of Verona," and Herniln, In "A Midsum
mer Night's Drenm." In tho latter
part her beauty, In Boston and London,
created a real excitement. Sho Is n
statoly brunette with great roposo of
manner nnd lends nn acceptable dignity
to many n part sho can hardly bo said to
play well.
Thero has not been for mnny n day bo
sad a caso In the annals of things theat
rical, ns that of Rose Norreys, whoso
pretty face Ib tho last of tho IIbL Poor
Genio Norroys for only on tho Btago
did tho niuno Roso stick to hor, a name
derived first from a part in which sho
was a success. When a young woman
is aflllctcd by a disaster liko hers, from
which It Booms almost impossible for
any ono to rescue hor, tho very fact
that tho victim Is still young and protty
and hns been as dainty as tho daintiest
of her kind, serves to emphnsizo tho
caso pitifully.
Tho bright face has lost Its expres
sion; tho protty girl has known tho tor-
ror or a night in tho streets, shelterless;
and even now is In somo retreat pro
vided by the charity of fellow-workers,
in hope that the doctor's verdict of
"probably Incurable" may be reversed.
