HILL FROWNS Oft SOCIETY'S LAPSES.
Tells His ConacreaTatloa Oae Staadard
of Morale Should Prevail.
"Are. Tou Single?" waa the rather" strik
ing and. ambiguous eubject of the evening
sermon preached at the First Christian
church by Rev. H. O. Hill, but he took oc
casion early In bis discourse to say that
' while hi title might indicate otherwise,
the sermon bad no relation to bachelors or
benedicts, splnstera or housewives, but to
,tbe lives of bis bearera as they are being
lived. He chose for bta text James iv, 8:
'"Draw nigh to Ood, and He will draw
' nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye aln
'nere; and purify your hearts ys double
Dr. Hill spoke of the fact that men
seem to b endowed with double naturs;
rata being the link or cooneotlon between
the brut and the divine, hit remaining in
;h!in soms ! the elements of th brut
and at. ths same time possesses an embryo
:of divinity. As Illustrating this, he ro
f erred to the sculptured group by George
Gray Bernard, entitled, "I feel two na
tures struggling within me." This work Is
mad up of two struggling male forms, one
typifying man's lowest nature grovelling In
the dust, and the other man'a highest con
sciousness striving to leave the form of his
companion and reach after better things.
Hs spoke also of the ancient myth of the
youth born Into the world to drive two
steeds, one black and the other white.
Which ha was expected . to guide to the.
goal tn a straight course. He spoke of
man's two natures struggling each against
V' the other for the eupremacy and aald that
the result of the struggle was that men
were in some, cases more or less Influenced
to lead double lives such as "Dr. Jekyll
sad Mr. Hide," as portrayed so ably In
Stevensea's novel. Borne of these double
lives are exposed.' but many tire nsvar discovered.-.
' He called ' the attention of hla hearers
to tha Importance - of avoiding small
breaches of honesty such as prompt a man
to avoid the payment ef postage by incor
rectly marking hla package, or failure to
pay street car fare if the conductor does
not . call for . tt. He condemned also the
petty deceptions and dishonesty of every
day life, such as the society lies and failure-
to return borrowed books and umbrel
las for ths reason that while theae things
way be small in themselves their conse
quences are by no means trivial for they
1 tend to a breakdown of character. ,
-The speaker argued for the Same stand
Iard of morals for the man ae the woman
and the same atandard of honeaty for' the
otSce as the pew, the polling booth and the
'prayer meeting. He urged his hearers to
ja stngls-hesrte life and pointed out with

Prior te tha commencement of his morn

The subject Of his discourse waa "ChHst's

"The Son r f Man Is come to seek and save
that which Is lent," Luke, six: 10. ,
The pastor stated that there were three
Important facta In success, without which
tbero Is naught but. failure first, knowl
edge; second, position or opportunity;
third. Incentive or Impelling force. Christ
represents all these. Inasmuch aa He Is
the light. He gave His life as a ransom,
and died that we .might have, life. Rev.
Conley called attention to the fact that
all the above principles were woven har
moniously Into Christ's life which are also
the fundamental principles of our success
today. The pastor said thet unleaa men
today. In the great arena of spiritual con
quest against sin, accepted these princi

derstood, and la, besides, the most mis

gain eternal success," said the speaker.

MASS MEETINGS ARB INAUGURATED.
Flret of a Series le Held at Koaatao
The first of a series of. mass meetings
under the auspices of the Young Men's
Christian association was held Sunday aft
ernoon at 4 o'clock In the KounUe Me
morial church, when the auditorium of that
edifice waa filled to overflowing by an
audience of men of the city. . During the
meeting Mr. Jo Barton sang and a talk
waa given by Rev. Robert Yost' of St.
Mary's Congregational church, who . took
for his subject, "A King and His Ghost."
He likened the demand of King Herod for
Jshn ths Baptist's head and ths ultimate
obeyanc of the king's order and the de
livery to bint of the martyr's head upon
platter, to the conditions of today.
"All of us have t ghost, like Herod,"
said Rev. Yost, "which haunts us during
our daily walks, Which Immediately rises
before us and, between us And our. Christ
when ws are confronted with danger or
death. Every being has an unwritten past
concealed within his mind which is released
Instantly at an opportune time, that we
may realize our affinity with Ood.".
He admonished his hearers to lead pure
and devoted Uvea that ths memory of their
past might - be without blemish and aa
honor to them. Rev. Yoat will address
the meeting; next Sunday. -,

city Sunday, E. M. Bsrtlett spoke cf
"Good Citizenship." Hs said, in- part:
"When the savage tears a limb from a
tree snd fashions a bow and arrow, and
with that goes out and conquers another
savage be performs an act which In Its
very essence. Is right, for ths rule of na
ture Is that 'might makes right,' and the
savage Is natural. When the conquered
savage gets together a number of his
brethren snd brings the one stronger sav
age Into subjection, he for the first time
forms a government and the savages learn
that they must co-operate to secure In
creased advantages. But to do this each
must surrender something of his personal
liberty, Ind ln all governments this Is
true, the best government being the one
which takes the least from the liberty of
the citizen. '
. "Organized government Is but the re
flection of the citizen. The best citizen !s
he In whom the altruistic and the egoistic
Ideas are about equal. Therefore, this must
be true of the best government. The best
citizen Is he who best understands his
true relation to his fellow citizen and to
the government under which they live. In
order to bring this about the citizen ahould
be educated In his duties as 4 citizen. Our
public schools are good they have taught
everything except that which will make a
man a good citizen. . More time should be
devoted to tho principles of government.
' "Today we have men running for the
city council on the platform that they will
get large appropriations for curtstn wards
asking to be elected because of their abil
ity to squander the' publlo money. We
sent men to the legislature who expect to
make a satisfactory record because of the
number of bills they Introduce, while they
do not understand the first principles of
government and have no Idea of the real
reason legislatures are organized. In the
case -of the councilman his Idea makes
government organized confiscation of prop
erty. With the high taxes his policy cre
ates, the man of moderate financial condi
tion cannot afford to own a home govern
ment confiscates It. The best government
Is that whtch takes the least from the lib
erties of the people and whenever It seeks
to curb' natural ability and the Inherent
rights of the Individual it becomes in that
degree a tyranny. ,
"The stream can rise no higher than Its
source ana tne government cannot be bet
ter than the people who form It; therefore.
In reforming governments it Is necessary to
begin with the citizen, and when a majority
of our voters are good citizens ln the
highest sense of the word our governments
will be good

And the Carnival of todayT Notwithstanding its French origin,
' as far as the present population of New Orleans la concerned it has
become thoroughly cosmopolitan, and from Its small beginnings of
parades of masqueraders. It has developed Into pageants far sur
passing In extent and grandeur all similar events occurlng elsewhere
111 the world. This last on the judgment of unprejudiced spectators
qualified by travel and experience to render such an opinion, and
owlns to the fact that through it all, coupled with lavish expendi
ture, there runs a thorough system, of- organization, as complete in
itself as that of a well descipllned army. This spiendid character
istic of Organisation, as -well as the special features of the Carnival,
Is brought about by secret societies formed tor the sole purposes, of
celebrating; the Mardi Oras and Carnival week. N,
