MASTERFUL ADDRESS. Mrs. J. J. Morgan Enthralled Her Listerera at the Long Beach Ebell Club. Long Beach Telegram: Mrs. J. J. Morgan ahd Miss Winnifred Rohrer were the whole program at the Ebell club on Monday, but they were all that was necessary to make the day stand forth in memory as one of the best of the year. Adjectives would only weaken the effect of an effort at a description of Mjflf? Rohrer's playing. Her Interpretation of the Strauss "Reverie," McDowell's Polonaise and tho Chopin Nocturne were absolutely perfect and her audience was not at all stinted in its manifestations of approval. Mrs. Morgan's exquisitely modulated voice, distinct enunciation and clear-cut sentences; her deep insight ahd scholarly presentation of her theme "Theatrical Tendencies and the New Drama," held her audience enthralled. Mrs. Morgan traced the evolution of the drama from prehistoric times to the present. Her talk was filled with rhetorical eloquence which would take stenographic art to reproduce in its perfection. The gist of it was that the theater had been and is one of the most abused of our public amusements, and -that playwright and player tell us they are giving us exactly what the public demands. While the penny arcade, the celluloid drama and vaudeville are not necessarily bad the tendencies are not elevating either to mind or morals. - The actor's church alliance, was organized ten'years ago in New York City for the purpose of elevating the stage and drama; chapters have been formed in many cities but none in the west. The greatest reform of the society has been the closing of the iSun- dhy theater in many of our cities The Temple auditorium in Los Angeles is to all. practical purposes a church theatre. People who worship there seem to feel no incongruity in seeing the pastor stand on Sunday where the actor stood on Saturday. Mrs. Morgan touched on the change for the better in the social life of the actor folk. Every good actor ap- the octor folk. Every good actor appearing in Los Angeles the past year has been invited to address the best women's clubs and has also talked before the schools. The time has *QBS_J53L w Ji6n a girl says good-by to social prestige when she appears before the' footlights, and Mrs. Morgan questioned if there were anyone who thought that Madame Modjeska was less a mother, less a wife, because she was queen of the stage. A few of Mrs. Morgan's epigramatic sentences interspersed in her eloquent talk follow; The custom of dramatizing novels is passing away; it may be because we have so many good playwrights. The primary object of all art, especially the drama, is to please. The drama has always been considered the highest form of literature. The last few years the taste in drama has been tending toward the Ibsonian style. The future of the drama is likely to be pictorial and platic. Drama as an addition to literature is not dead nor is it dying. Mrs. Morgan closed her intensley interesting talk with the quotation: All the world's a stage and all the men and women merely players. They have their exits and their entrances and one man in his time plays many parts. CHURCH WORKER CALLED HOME. had always remained a Methodist, and at the time of his death was a member of the University Methodist Church. After he was Injured Mr. Smith gradually failed.

White, of this city, died Monday as the result of an injury sustained In a street-car accident more than four years ago. He was 55 years old and had led an active life as a local preacher, church worker and business man. He was once president of the Christian Endeavor Society of San Luis Obispo county. Mr. Smith was born on the Island of Ciuernsey.

Dr, Linscott for the International Newspaper Bible Study Club. May 23, 1909. The Council of Jerusalem. Acts xv: 1-35. Golden Text—We believe that through the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ we shall be saved, even as they. Acts xv.ll. Verses 1-3—Are good men liable to hold wrong opinions? When good men differ in opinion what is the better way in order to reach an understanding? When a professed Christian gets angry with another Christian, on a mere matter of opinion, ha» he or' not, backslidden from the love of God, and what spirit does it show? Circumcision no doubt originated from supposed purposes of health', and physical cleanliness, and afterwards became a national institution of the Jews. State when God first made circumcision the sign, or token, of the covenant between him and Abraham and his seed, and to whom the rite of circumcision and God's conven- ant extended. (See Gen. xvll.) Is circumcision now essential to salvation? Is the belief of any doctrine essential to salvation? Verses 6-11—Ts experience of God and his dealings with us, conclusive proof of the will of God in the matters which the experience covers? Is thorough discussion In church courts, a perfectly right way to arrive at the will of God on any matter? Were those who taught that circumcision was essential to salvation, as well as being narrow, necessarily untrue men? What Is the difference between the "yoke" of the law and the "yoke" of Jesus? (v. 10.) Verse 12— Recall some of the won- ders done through Paul and Barnabas, among the Gentiles, and say what bearing they had upon the dispute concerning circumcision? Verses 13-21—Who was James, who next, addressed the council? James, the brother of Jesus, was the president of the council; it is probable that his address was of the nature of the judgment of the council on this question? Verses 22-29—There seems to have been no formal motion passed by the council, but they appear to have reached an unanimous decision- ns outlined in the address of the president; say whether we are bound to take this decision as the voice of God. In what particulars is the great wisdom of the council shown in settling this dispute? Were each of the commandments given in verse 20 Intended to be of lasting obligation, or were sonio of them only temporary? Prom whom are Christians to get guidance on all matters in this day? Versos .'{O-.'ifi—There never will be a time when disputes may not occur, in the church and between individuals; how should they always be settled? Did thin trouble In the church help it or hurt it, and does find always over-rule trouble, whoever may be the cause of it, for tho good of hiH children? Lesson for Sunday, May HO, HtO!).
