PARIS, Sept. 7. In a message to
President Polncare, Emperor Nich
olas announces that he has placed
himself In command of all the Rus
sian armies.
The message was sent from Tisar-koye-Selo,
the emperor's residence
near Petrograd, under date of Sep
tember 6. It follows: '
"In placing myself today at the
head of my valiant armies, I have In
my heart, monsieur president, the
most sincere wishes for the great
ness of France and the victory of its
glorious army.
(Signed), 'NICHOLAS." j
President Polncare sent the following
response today:
"I know that your majesty, In taking
command of your armies, Intends to con
tinue energetically until final victory, the
war which has been Imposed upon the
allied nations. I addreea to your ma
jesty, in the name of France, my moat
cordial wishes.
Since the outbreak of thn wax. ClranA
y IDuke Nicholas, cousin of Emperor Nich
olas, has been In command of the armies
of Russia. ' -
The measage of Emperor Nicholas to
President Polncare does not make it
clear whether Grand Duke Nicholas has
been superseded by the emperor. Dur
ing the last few weeks there haa been
(tevere criticism of the conduct of the
war by the Russian authorities.

Saarbruecken is not provided with ar
tillery for high angle fire, and an

the operations jat; the aviators.
All forty aeroplanes, after discharging

Christians See People All Around
Going to Hell and Never Try '

The first weekday afternoon j
meeting In the Sunday tabernacle
saw the auditorium of the building
a little more than half filled and no
one on the platform except a num-!
ber of ministers and their wives and I
less than fifty In the choir chairs.
The audience was estimated at 8,600. j
But this was no disappointment to j
those in charge. In fact, It was said .
to be a good showing for a weekday
afternoon when most people are at
work. In Des Moines the weekday
afternoon meetings were not nearly
so well attended, especially at the
start of the campaign. The choir Is
never used at the afternoon meetings
except on Sundays.
The sun beating down on the vast
low roof of the building made the
temperature high Inside. Most of
the men In the audience took off
their coats.
Keeps oa Ills Coat.
"Billy" didn't take off his coat, though
the perspiration rolled from his face and
soaked through the back of his ooat from
shoulder to shoulder before he had fin

The audience sang several hymns, led
by It. C. Brewster, who sang a solo also.
Mr. Sunday atood at hla pulpit all through
the singing, and then sailed Into his ser

It was a defense of religious revivals

Then he laughed and shook his head.
"My, my, it's a good thing for some

Further Needs of Religious
Revival Arc Given by Sunday
"Pllljr" Sunday, at the tabornnclo Tiirs
day evening, speaking on the need of
rellirlous revivals, said:
"Listen to me. In the economy of
nature Ood provides for an occasional
copious downpour of rain. You would
be a fool to growl because it didn't rain
all the time. Ood hn arrnned his spir
itual kingdom so that he haa a copious
downpour of 4ritual blraalniia. Ood Is
rolling In spiritual wealth as well aa
material. It la not thoiwht unwise to
have a revival In business, oh, no every
town has Its Commercial oiub. It is not
thiuiKhl unwlao to Itava a revival In
politics oh, no,
' Some ihiH'Io are scared to death that
somebody mUht bo saved from hell by
out-of-lhe-ordlnary method.
"Political leaders wilt hire loaders,
newspapw etiltors, publishers and will
spnd money for (voters In order to get
thoao who are indifferent to the pollilfil
situation intereated that la nothing un
der heaven but a political revival and you
don't hear anybody growl about it.
"in tho business world, listen. In the
business world man must make tha Mar
ket as well as the goods for the market
He must make the goods, then he goes
Into the market. He's got to do both.
You've got all these institutions to create
a demand for tho products these are bus
iness revivals you have auto showa,
they are auto revivals you have country
fairs which sre nothing but revivals
where they show cows, pigs, chickens,
broad, butter, homes and all tha producta
of the tnrm. Then what the revival la
to business, what the election Is to poli
tics, tho revival Is to reunion; what
health Is to the Individual tho revival
is to rollsion. Martin Luther saved Eu
roo from spiritual death a spiritual
revival under Martin Luther waa the
caum of tho Reformation, nothing but
a revival, and why any Lutheran will
snap, snarl, growl about a revival when
his church was born of a revival, 1
don't know.
Saved from Herniation.
"Wesley and Whltefleld saved Knulind
from tho French Revolution. Kdwards,
Finney and Moody lifted America from
degradation by revivals of their day. The i
prophets were all evangcliHts; John tho
Baptist, the greatest man ever born of ,
woman, wna an vangellHt The church
of Pentecost was born In religion In a
time of revival. You turn up your nosns
at a revival, when the very religion
whloh you love wsa born In a time of
revival. I wonder Ood don't knock you
over. Taul was an evangelist, and when
ever Paul was to preach or wherever
he went they had to call out the police
to protect him: he had a revival or a
riot everywhere he went. You cut tho
day of Pentecost out of history; you out
Peter, James and Paul out of history,
and what you have left would not make
a decent rummage sale.
"Any boy can throw a stone and break
a stained glaas window, but it takes an
artist to make one; any fool can build
a fire and burn a building, but It takea
a skilled mechanic to reconstruct It; a
mob crucified Christ, but It took Ood to
raise Him from the dead; any fool oan
sneer at a revival; any fool can do that,
and you are a fool If you do.
"But you say by and through a revival
we acknowledge we have backslidden.

LONDON, 8ept. 7. The lmae

but as winter quarters In case the at

should be postponed .until next
Field Marshal Von Hlndenburg is
experionclng great difficulty In bridg
ing the portions of the Dvlna held by
the Germans. The current of tho
river is too swift for the construction
of pontoon bridges under the Rus
sian artillery fire. As the rainy sea
son comes on It will be more diffi
cult for the Invaders to bring up sup
plies for their advancing forces, and
consequently Riga as a base becomes
more vital to the success of Von Hln
denburg's plana.
Paris Paper Order.
The urgent necessity ot capturing Riga
Is Indicated In an army order which a
Paris newspaper credits to General Von
Buelow. The general exhorts hla troops
to one mora great effort. to capture the
port, making it their winter Wme pre
paratory to marching on Petrograd next
spring. '. " ,
Along the other sectors of the eastern
front the impetus of the Austro-German
rush has been considerable checked.
Vienna admits that fierce counter attaoka
by the Russians have brought tha ad
vance along tha Gallolan border almost
to a standstill. The light wins; of the
Austro-German forces Is said to be con

Marshal Von Mackenaen in command.
No exceptional actions have occurred
