SOCCER FOOT BALL TEAMS
PLAY A TIE IN ST. LOUIS
T. JXUIS, Dec 24. Playing for the
soccer championship of the United States,
the Tacony team of Philadelphia and the
St. Leos or BL Louis battled to a 4 to 4
tie at Athletlo park this afternoon. The
lontest was remsrkable for the speed dis
played on a field that waa a half foot
deep In mud. The visitors especially
were fast and their kicking waa much
surer than ahat of the local champions.
Each team scored three points In the
first half, tbe fit. Leoa getting the first
point after five minutes of play. The ball
was In Tacony'a territory much of the
time, but the great work of Captain
Hector McDonald often got the ball out
of danger. St. Leoa' scoring was due
largely to fumbling at the goal. A fea
ture of the game was the kicking of
William Abateln, first baseman of the
Memphis base ball team, who played full
back for the St. Leos.
The Tacony team will play the Innls-

HAYE EACH DAY CHRISTMAS
Dean Tancock Says Christmas is
Message of the Church Today.
THOUGHTS TURN TO THE POOR
Chrlntasas Is a Festival of Gladness
and Joy Is the Emphatic Word
of the Service of the
"It was midnight in the hhistory of
the world,"as well as midnight of the
twenty-four hours, when the angel ap
peared to the shepherds on the plains
of Judea and sang, "I bring you good
tidings of great Joy, whlchh shall bo
unto all people," said Dean James A.
Tancock In his sermon at Trinity
cathedral yesterday morning. "Tho
world was filled with unbelief anil
crime and there was no hope of things
better," he said.
For 400 years the poets and prophets
had been silent. For 400 years there
had been no message of the Christ. Sud
denly, on the announcement of the angel,
the young men began to write poems and
the young maidens to sing ths sweetest
"Christmas Is a festival of gladness,"
said Dean Tancock.1 "The emphatlo
word of the church's service, the em
phatic word of all the scriptures, la
'Joy.' There is no man or woman who
realises that the grave Is - not a dark
hole which swallows up everything,, but
the gateway of eternal life, who has not
reason to rejoice today.
"It ought always to be Christmas day.
All our thoughtfulness for the poor to
day, all our Interest In the distressed
ought to be characteristic of the whole
"The message of Christmas Is the mes
sage of the church today. Just think:
what the world would bo without
Christmas. If you take, belief In
Christ out of the world. If you take
away the hope of eternal life, there Is
no peace on earth. Tou look up at
the sky then and all Is midnight. The
only thing to do. then is to stop think
ing." CHILDREN JOIN IN THE SERVICE
Vnletide Exercises Given at Cas
tellar Presbyterian Chart-h.
The services at the Caatellar Street
Presbyterian church yesterday were pe
culiarly appropriate to Advent Sunday.
The congregations were large both morn
ing and evening. At the morning service
the church and Sunday school Joined in
a fine Christmas tide missionary exer
cise. Under the present pastorate this
has become an annual service of much
effectiveness. The religious emphasis of
Christmas of Christ, the gift of God for
all the world Is stressed by song, recita
tion and decorations. At yesterday's
service the children rendered their mis
sionary exercises with fine effect, . while
the large chorus choir rendered Its muslo
with exceptionalsuccess. In the evening
the choir with equal success sang, nativ
ity music. At this service the pastor
preached the third and lost sermon of a
series entitled "The World In Preparation
For Its Messiah." The special theme of
the occasion was "The Preparation ot a
Purpose." Referring to verses six and
seven of the second chapter of Haggal,
the minister. Rev. Ralph H. Houseman,
said. "This Is a remarkable passage. At
tempts have been made to pervert It wlien
It was found by the Jewluh people that
It had been fulfilled, but without avail.
God used the writer of the book of the
Hebrews to remind the nation what God
meant by the words. The text refers
undoubtedly to the Messiah, although
exegetlcal interpretation may not entirely
bear out the Idea."
"Against the dark background of na
tional apostacy," the minister went on to
say, "Haggal was making' an eloquent
appeal to his people, who were the di
vinely appointed custodians of the Mes
sianic hope, that their Iohs of one temple
need not discourage them. They should
have yet another that would be marked
by a great neas surpassing the first one.
Into It, because of Christ, worshippers ot
all nations should come. The prophet
particularises to them that the whole de
partment of nature is concerned Mn the
coming of this 'desired One.' He gives
a vivid picture of universal commotion
and the transformation of the world
