BISHOP SCANNElL'S LENTEN .LETTER
jgeeernmend Arts l Charity
Piety on the Part of tke Laity
Order of the Forty
Yesterday was qulnquisgcslma Sunday or
Via Sunday preceding tba adreot of Lent,
which will open next Wednesday. In all
of the Episcopal and Catholic churcbea this
day la celebrated with solemnity fitting
the Sunday which usher In the pentltentlal
eaaon of the Christian year.
In all of the Catholic churches the lea
ten letter of the bishop, with the rulea for
Lent promulgated by him, was Had. Thia
year tba lenten letter of Bishop Scsnnrll
la a homily, baring as Ita theme sorrow
and penitence for sin. The letter la writ
ten around tho lesson which Is to be read
at all masses on Ash Wednesday, from the
prophet, Joel. The bishop recommends acts
of charity and piety, and rontlnuea:
"Why should the laity leave all worka of
charity to the clergy and the religious or
ders? To do their part In delivering others
from Ignorance, error, vice, lrreliglon. In
justice, and In making them comfortable,
, rlrtuous and happy, would be the surest
way of promoting their own perfection and
tbelr own happiness. And there Is another
cogent reason why the laity should take
part In every movement that baa for Us
object the good of religion and the bet
terment of the people. In times of religious
persecution and great social or political
upheavals the people will easily become
demoralized and will succumb to the as
saults that will be made upon their faith
and morals unless they have been trained
beforehand to labor for and defend tbelr
religious interests. Let a bigoted
r an athelstlo party get Into power In
any country and one of Its first attempts
will be to enslave the church and under
mine religion among the people. And such
attempts have always succeeded in the
past whsnever the church had not the sup
port of an active and Intelligent laity.
Priests and nuns cannot very well enter
the political arena, and therefor enemies
of religion pay little attention to their op
position or protests.
trace Practical Work.
"And now, to be practical, I recommend
to the laity of this diocese, as a beginning,
the establishment In every pariah of a con
ference of the Society of St. Vincent de
Paul. This la a society of which I can
apeak In terms of tho highest praise. Let
no pastor say that there is no room for
auch a society In his parish. As soon as
It la established it will find work enough
to do. Two or three men of the right kind
will be enough for a beginning, and when
the conference Is established others of ap
proved fitness can be received."
The collections In the Catholic churches
are announced as follows: For the propa
gation of the faith on the first Sunday, for
the Holy Land on Good Friday, for the
Pope on the Sunday within the octave of
the feast of 83. Peter and Paul, for the or
phans on the first Sunday in 'October.
Tho regulations tr.r Lent are as follows:
All the faithful not lawfully dispensed or
excused are obliged to observe the fast

one full meal a day; In the evening a light
collation la permitted; by way of dispensa

NO MARRIAGES WHEN KINGDOM COMES

"When you go to buy a suit of clothe
take Christ wlh you," waa the advice of
Dr. Russell Conwell, pastor of the Baptist
Temple of Philadelphia, who preached to
a large . congregation at Calvary Baptist
church Sunday night. Dr. Conwell apokt
extemporanenouftly, and aelxed a phrase
from the1 Lord' prayer with which the
services were opened as his text. It waa:
"Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done, on
earth as It is In heaven."
"Adam and Eve were married," said th
preacher, "but not by a justlc of the
peace. There are beautiful mansions in
heaven occupied by. the angels,, but the
huts on the back lot of Omaha are not
copied after them. There are beautiful
churches on earth, but In many there is
not beautiful worship within.
"Chriet did not pray that you might go
to. heaven; 1 He did not ask even that His
disciples should reach there; He prayed In
stead to have the kingdom of 'heaven
brought to earth. Yet men pray day after
day and do nothing to help bring It her.
"When the kingdom of heaven come to
earth the beautiful palaces will come with
It, and everything else that is beautiful;
and we cannot bring it here till we mak
all beautiful and good. There will be no
saloons here then, and nothing to work
"There will be no more subscription to
build churches, no more dedication of
temples, when this kingdom come. Every
home will be a bouse of worship. The only
necessity for churches today I th wicked
ness of the world.
'There will be no marriage ceremonle
on earth when the kingdom come. No
man will stand up at the altar of God
bouse and pretend to have the right to
gfve away a woman. No such thing ever
happen at any marriage where I officiate.
Man ha no auch right. Woman 1 his
equal, and haa as much light to give away
men a they have to give 'away women.
Those people will marry then who are
fitted for each other.' Law and conven
tions have nothing to do with a true mar
riage of the soul. A departure from auch
affinities la a wickedness, yet it is upheld
by the laws. Still, It 1 a rude Iconoclast
who would break these law at tone fell
swoop. It must be done slowly; the king
dom inust flrat be brought here.
HOPE ESSENTIAL TO BELIGIOX.
Dr. Mann Declare Knowledge of
Eternal Life I Xeceary.
Revr"t)r. W. H. Mann preached at St.
Mary' Avenue Congregational church from
the Songs of Solomon. His theme related
to a. hope for peace and rest In th life
beyond. He said he would not attempt
to discuss the Song of Solomon, nor de
fine the theological meaning of God's reve
lation to St. John, but attempt to show
the necessity for living In the hope and
knowledge of a peace for the soul in the
kingdom of God.
Hope is essential to religion ana nie,
said he. "Hope Is the underlying secret
to our success In all the thing that go to
make up our dally routine. A. knowledge
of the permanency, of the life beyond spurs
us on to our labor and gives to us a re
newal of our ambitions. The minister of
the gospel find 'It necessary, to prepare
hi sermon for each succeeding Sunday in
a manner that will present to bis people
a new definition of spiritual duties. The
newspaper man from day to day must
present' to his readers, new and fresh
sources of information of th affair of the
world. Thus wo go through life, each day
accomplishing something, with a view to
final -permanency of a life of rest, the
translentness of our labors bringing a
weariness - that appeals to a hope for a
'Hope for this rest Is not sensual; It Is
nature's law. Work Is the girder f hu
manity; a dissipation of vice; a developer
of virtue and character, the practice- of
which proves that we are1 made in the
Image of God. Thus it follows that in
these accomplishments we anticipate tbe
promise of God of a realization of the hope
'Attainment of Ideals Is the ambition of
many of us. Hundreds turn aside, how
ever, because of lost ambition. Discour
agement of life often come, not because
we fall In many thing hoped for, but be
cause we are often misunderstood. Too
many people often Judge us by the minority
of our vices instead of th majority of our
virtues. Truth 1 eternal, the most bigoted
thing pn earth and the moat arbitrary
sovereign; in the final reckoning the truth
will declare Itself tbe master. The com
munity has only a superficial conception of a
man, because it sees him but casually;
but the man knowa himself best, and thus
controls bis own conscience and Is guided
In his hopes for peace eternal.
'We learn to love by a continuous com
panionship. Because God knew the world
He loved It. The more wa know people
the better we love them, th broader be

lasting, and a relief from tbe strife of this
DR. HIRST'S MORXISO 8ERBIO.
Graphically Folate Out tho Sphere of
Dr. A. C. Hirst of the First Methodist
church, on Sunday morning, took for hi
text th twelfth verse of the fourteenth
chapter of John: "Greater Work than
these shall ye do, because I go to My
Father." He spoke In part a follow:
"Jesus spoke these words, when In tbe
deep solemnity of His own death He wa
teaching men tbe way of life eternal. Tha
miracle of Christ were in the realms of
th material and demanded tbe applica
tion of force. While HI real dispensation
wa In the realm of tba spiritual snd de
manded the application of power, the calm
ing the seas, th multiplying th loaves
and fishes, tbe opening of graves, were
the signal 'blasts of tbe herald, of th
coronation of spiritual power, announcing
that tbe era of reformation and resume
tlon had come.
"Th sphere of Christian achievement Is
In th realm of fallen manhood. Christ
went through His public ministry rooting
the great principles of virtu, truth, moral
ity and love, principles destined to bear
a glorious fruitage In refining and exalting
the world' life. If Christian today tak
that blessed gospel Into th midst of the
wrongs, sin and Idolatry of th world, and
overcome them, destroying th maaslv
strongholds of Iniquity, reacnlng and saving
men everywhere, so that human Uvea will
be transfigured and human character trans
formed Into beauty and dlvlneness. will
that not be a gralder thing, a greater work
than th mere manifestation of the material
processes of nature?
"By discovery. Invention, art, science and
government, men are subduing nature. They
ar doing so by getting into harmony with
th dtvln power that rule creation. Bell
so fousda unity of thought la big ow
mind with th habits of the omnipotence
of th world we call law, that by th
telephone the cadence of the human voice
tell th tldea of one aoul unto another
through mile of space. No human mind
can auggest the mental and spiritual stature
of coming humanity. The human rare has
only bad ita Brat brath. as rompared to
it long career In eternity. We have only
begun the discoveries. How much better
those shall be that are to come must be
measured by the nobility and Immortality
of the human aoul. God desires to crowd
all our capacities from His inexhaustible
fullness. God tries to come to all our
faculties. One triumph of Christian achieve
ment means reproduction, immortality of
Influence. The Christian achiever work
on mind, and mind Is Immortal."
DOtBI.R' WORLD OF REALITY.
Bahject of Sermon by Dr. Mann at
'The Double World of Reality: Seen and
tnseen," wa th subject of the discourse
delivered by Rev. Newton M. Mann at Unity
church Sunday morning. He said In part:
"There ar fruitful and there are futile
ways of gazing Into heaven, and we Ihnll
not, perhaps, all agree on the classification.
Among the futile class are those turning
to wonder worker to help them out of their
trouble In some magical fashion. Thl
has been an Inveterate habit of mankind.
From the flrat when an event has been
pending, the springs of which no human
eye could fully perceive, the supernatural
has been appealed to, snd from certsln
signs Into quivering sacrifice, or supposed
token . In nature, or Incoherent oracle of
priest or fortune teller or healer, the issue
has' been prognosticated. I speak now of
the general disposition of men to seek for
light from occult sources and through mys
terious avenues. It Is a common fact that
as often as th natural way to a conclu
sion is closed somebody will propose to
reach it by the supernatural. Frequent
recourse to this means of solving a hard
problem' Induce a belief with the multitude
tbat here 1 an easy way out of trouble, a
short cut to knowledge, the effect of which
Is to put a quietus on personal effort, for
who will trouble himself with much labor
of self-help or of Investigation when .the
end can.be reached equally as well or bet
ter by calling in a magician or by consult
ing a seer?
"But If these are profitless there are also
fruitful ways Of looking Into heaven of
reaching into tbs unknown. .We probably
know more about mind than we do about
patter, and it has a thousand times more
to reveal to us. . The Inner unseen world
Is really the great world. Men are quick
ened by the spirit of God; they are pos
sessed, the ancients thought, by devils.
The spirit of truth makes us free and the
spirit of evil binds us fast"
PASTORS ARB NOT TRIMMERS.
Rev. Groh Say Preachers Generally
Rev. L. Grob's Sermon at St. Mark's Lu
theran church last evening was1 suggested
by an editorial utterance In The Bee rela
tive to the farewell sermon of Dr. C. S. Sar
gent. Rev. Groh quoted The Bee:
'Dr. Sargent, having resigned, was free
to speak bis mind. Hence be gave his
people wholesome admonitions."
The natural inference from such a state
ment, said Rev. Groh, would be unjust to
Dr. Sargent. "To throw hot shells full .of
terrible explosives only from behind the
safe walls of a resignation would not be
very heroic. To attack opponents when
they were totally disarmed would not be
fair play. Dr. Sargent Is not a man for
such work. He always speak the truth
In love,' according to bts best convictions.
He realizes as .' vividly ' as anyone that a
sycophant Is contemptible anywhere, but
supremely so Itf the pulpit."
"Th writer In The Bee." continued Rev.
Groh, "goes on to generalize. He says that
pastors are restrained from speaking ut
boldly for fear of offending prominent
members and endangering their place. I
think this Is entirely unjust to my brethren
in the sacred calling. Very few ar trim
ming call by popular favor. It would en
danger their own souls and those of their
hearers. Naturally they must be wise as
serpents. Their own Judgments must guide
them. God's word alone must be the rule.
"As a class ministers of the gospel have
always shown true ' courage and sincere
fidelity. There are some exceptions, of
.course. Not everyone Is worthy of his call
ing. They cannot speak things tbat some
hearers would wish. They may ask for
thunder and lightning in denouncing wick
edness. But such are easily offended when
a heavy clap strikes near their own door."
