VENGEANCE OF OOD, SAYS HITIMOI
w..A He Tlilnks la That
"This awful earthquake Is a visitation of
Ood on a wicked city. The only wonder
Is that only the cities on the coast have
been Included and the wrath did not strike
rwnah. The only reason Is that Ood's
natlenoa has not entirely worn out.'
This declaration was made yesterday
morning- at Kountsa Memorial church by
Rev. J. E. Hummon In his sermon on the
Ban Francisco calamity. He took his text
from Revelation Xl:U "And the same hour I
tvire a treat earthquake, ana inn
tenth pert of the city fen and In the earth
quake wr slain of men 7.000 and the
remnant were affrighted and gave glory
to the Ood of heaven."
This disaster," he said, "has nrougni
instruction or partial destruction to many
cities on the coast. I doubt not but this
horrible catastrophe has been sent of God
for a miroose. It Is not the first time l
Ood has brought upon this world visitations
of this character to attract men to Better
thoughts. Borne people are drawn to Ood I
through love. Others It seems must be at-
trarted by some phenomenal occurrence,
"It Is terrible, no one can deny that.
Bo was the flood when all men were de
stroved but Noah and his wife, their three
sons and their wives. Bo was the raining
down of burning ashes upon Sodom. Bo
was the Inundating of Holland, the burning
of Chicago, the Johnstown and Galveston
floods. God hates sin and sooner or later I
He will punish It. He Is warning people to-
day to flee from the wrath to come. He
does not say when It will come or how it
will come, but It will come sooner or later.
, "Tuesday evening the people of Ban Fran
elsoo were wasting their time In gaiety
and sin. It Is the universal testimony
that San Francisco Is the worst city on
the continent.. , Bin and disregard of law
are rampant. It has a reputation for Infi
delity and atheism. The people had no
thouaht of God. But Ood will let tnem

that catastrophes " are not lnterpretable

GOD'S MESSAGE IS THE CALAMITY
am Fraartaro Disaster a Call to
Evaaarellaatloa of World.
Preaching on the topic, "God a Man of
War," Rev. E. R. Curry referred at some
length to the San Francisco disaster In
his sermon at Calvary Baptist church last
night. In part he said:
'It Is a Question how much of God we
can sea In events as they happen. The
calamity that befell San Francisco might
be Interpreted aa an evidence of God's
worth. It is said by some San Francisco
Is the wickedest of cities, but I have won

I have been In. You might be able to find
even In our own city spots where wicked
ness and vice were Just as flagrant as
they are In Ban Francisco and you might
find In Ban Francisco men Just as noble
and good aa there are anywhere on earth.
It Is not entirely or us to say Just what
the reason was. Of course the scientists
tell us superficially, but still you ask why
has Ood so formed tha world that this thing
The esrthquake may have come to this
city as a lesson, but we cannot dogmatize
upon that. We should not draw Inferences
because we have not all the facts. They
are In the mind of Ood. But we can draw
certain lessons (ran the catastrophe. Wo
can realise how Insignificant man Is beside
Ood and how unstable are the things of
this world. But the greatest lesson for
us la that in this world Ood will speak
and Ood will be heard by the sons of men.
When Ood speaks by events and disasters
then men begin to think, to Inquire and
sometimes to seek Him.

that he is worth waiting for. The piece
hns been before the public continuously
for a year and a half, and It Is quit aa
much of a success today aa it was ai m

original cast are the substitution of
Bobby Barry for George M. Cohan and
of Miss Stella Tracy for Ethel Levy, and

Chinese lottery In San Francisco and Is

Bobby Barry, the Johnny Jonea of the

has a talent of his own or he wouldn't be
able to do George Cohan so exactly on the
stage. Stella Tracy, the soubrette. Is Just
as cute as cute can be and carries herself
with a most pronounced swagger. She

no complaint to mak ts to the amount of
fun dished out. lfofb snd Dill are Ger

or three "leaders" of both ' sexes, about
as many more for specialties, and a lot
of good looking and shapely women, and
you have something that will entertain an
audience at the Krug all day, if there is
only the smallest amount of ability. But
make the proposition still better with
plenty of good Jokes, good voices, ability,

of that which create an appetite. Beside

leading feature, probably, la the one-act
comedy put on by Mr. McCarthy and Miss
Wolcott, "The Race Tout s Dream." This
haa been Improved In many ways since seen
here before and is now one of the real
successes of vaudeville. Mr. McCarthy ia
a good comedian and Miss Wolcott is a
splendid second for him. The novelty of
the bill Is Bandor' "circus," in which
dogs, made up to represent horses and
other animals, do a variety of things, re
producing features of a circus performance
very naturally: Caprice. Lynn and Fay are
three girls who sing a little and dance a
good deal, and do It all well, so well that
they quickly establish themselves .with the
local public Mary K. Hill sings some good
parodies and tells a few good Jokes, and
generally pleases. Stanley and Wilson pre
sent a novelty in the musical line that Is
worth listening to. Dan Sherman and

very laughable. Clifford and Burke, al
