ROCHESTER DEMOCRAT AND CHRONICLE: MONDAY, OCTOBER 20, 1S91. THEY DID NOT FIND GOD jiat Caused the Downfall of the Romans, Says Dr. Taylor. ILT1VATED GOOD QUALITIES C! fiat They Lacked the One Thing That Would Have tia.'e Them L.ive Ser- Before tfce Proteciives at tho Enck Church Last N:ght. Last night P.ev. Dr. Taylor, pastor of the prick Church, preached a sermon to the rotect'Tes 'whose chaplain he is. The waiters of the organization in full uniform pleaded the chuieh in a body, but were cnly s gmail portion of tho congregation that listened to the address, the Btibject of n-iiifh was "Some Roman Virtues in Chris-taa Form. ' ' The lesoa of the sermon a that the Romans in the hour of trial weie found wanting, in spite of the shrewd-tes and simplicity of their character for the reason that they never knew God. The tit was ' ' The man Christ Jesus. ' ' There are few of us. ' ' said the doctor, jn reginaing his address, ' who, in our touta were fortunate enough to attend a j:-a school or a college where we were not eoBip''l'ed to hear bo much about Greece jaJ Koine tiiat at times we wished there never had been such places. In tLesa everlasting translations whenever it was not Greece, Greece, Greece, it was Rome, flfiraa, Rome, that we were writing and reading. But I undertand that now there j5 g ctiinie fmm tin old order of things. A gene fttion ago no literary production was cv,i;ri;eica jjousu'.-d u it nau no quota-tons ia Greek or Latin or no references to aae.eiit history. Now this is ail changed, 6i vou weil know. And I regret this c!inJ for the Jews are tho only people to whem our obligations are comparable to waatwe owe the Greeks and Romans. AVo owe to the Greeks our standard of taste in matters of art and to the Romans we owe thanks for the inspiring records of pure and Einple live. Besides whatever of similarity there is ia the political structure of the cations of Europe and America, we owe to Rome. " The most interesting of the modern buildings of Harvard College is Memorial Hall. It was erected in honor of and in memory oi those students and professors of the Uni-versitv who gave their services and lives in the 'ar of the Rebellion. On the walls of the bvilding are tablets on which are Latin inscriptions intended to exalt the memory of those to whom I have referred. On one of the windows of the building I read nineteen equivalents : Hope, patience, authority, discipline, magnanimity, constancy, fortitude, prudence, fidelity, temperance, manhood, wisdom, honor, ardor, love of country, justice, mildness, perseverence, truth. 4 These qualities possessed by any one nation would Ciake that nation the greatest iu the world. Rome possessed them more nearly than any nation of which we know. Perhaps the Romans owed their greatness ! to their obedience to authority as much as to any other of the qualities enumerated. They possessed the faculty of self government mora than any other people oa the face of the earth, the English alone excepted. T;ris was owing to their respect for authority. 1 he head of a Roman family could put his wife an l child to death without interfer-euce and ho in turn respected the ruler of the state as he was respected by his family. The esteem in which discipline was held is illustrated by an act of Titus ilai-lius who sentenced his own son to death because he undertook a military enterprise, and it wa euccessfuh without orders. ' Love of home was another of tho dis-tinguiehintr characteristics of the Roman who took a savago pride in the glory of his country. The spirit of patriotism as Ehowa iu the speech of Appius Claudius who, old and weak, rose in his place in tho Senate and begged the Senators not to make peace while there was an enemy in Italy. 4 The quality of strength, or manliness, was greatly adorned and admired. The Romans loved to honor Horatius and other famous heroes all of whom are known. " Of truth the Romans also made a great deal and their idea of justice may be estimated by that act of Brutus, who ordered that hia own sons ehould be beheaded when they were convicted of treachery. ' 4 We find a great deal made of temperance by the Romans that is of all around plainness and simpieness of life. Valerius, after his election to the consulship, began to erect a mansion on the hiilst, but upon hearing the muraiers of the people demolished the walls cf his proposed residence and contented himself with life in a hut. The Romans established the office of censor, men who were privileged to examine men's private Uvea and to bring to justice cases of vice and self-indulgence. Old Cato, who was a sort of Roman Benjamin Franklin, was the typical censor. He made himself a terror to the rich and the luxurious in Rome. 4 Now I think that thi3 rapid eurvey of these typical Roman characters gives a fair idea of the type of manhood which it was intended at least to produce. They were qualities which tended to make a race of taea who were masters or themselves, taas-ttrs of nature and masters of other men. It must be admitted by all that the Roman was a great deal of a man. It was the devotion to these qualities that made the Romans famous. ' 'In many respects the Romans were inferior to the Greeks, but in tho6e qualities of masterliness they escelied all. "In the latter life of the Roman nation we found the people' tried, and, with all their training, found wanting. Now, I a: k why did su.'ti an end follow such a beginning? Why wasn it that the Romans, starting right, apparently, why did they cot go on rising and nd God? You say that in the latter day they relaxed ia their simple mode of life. That is true, but why was this w hy was there this lack of stability? Their views of individual rights were also defective, you may ear, and it is not diiheuit to perceive tae truth of the statement. It is easy to j eay teat in spite of occahional examples of heroism and purity, the people as a whole were hard and crueL It is easy to give these explanations, I nay, my friends. It is easy to answer thus to the questions, 'Why did the Romans in the hour of trial fail! Why were they found wanting ? But none of "the replies answers the question, ia my mind. It was because he did not know Uod that the Roman failed. ' ' io, not among the Greeks nor the Romans must we look for the perfect man. It ts not the man Cato, nor the man Seneca, nor any of thsa prominent figures of the two great cations, it is the man Christ Jesus who ia the light of the world. It is :r . Ul l,oa wno possessed the Qualities that I enumerated in thpir i,.rfo,. form. And how much more God -like they seem when we nave the imaze of jurist m mja than when we Lava Yes Ha i ti 7 'tm:tt i-oman in mind, in the r ?'7 ne who Las ever realised th RP CVrmthoe9 qities whieU c n tT?

' ' The course has been arranged with a view of presenting aa vivid a picture as possible of this remote period, and of the life and work of this most extraordinary personage who figured in it. railway news. New Water Troughs for the Central -Hudson Improved Car Service. The Western New York & Pennsylvania will build a bridge 123 feet ia length at Canedia. William Darling, for several years doorman at the Central-Hudson station, has accepted a position ia Amsden's ticket oftice. The BuSalo, Rochester & Tittsburg earnings last week were $33, 709. 79, an increase above the corresponding period of last year of 58, 377. 01. A misplaced switch sent an engine and two cars into the ditch at the East Rochester yards last Saturday night. Track No. 4 was blocked until yesterday afternoon. The carelesshess of an employe is thought to have been the cause of the accident. President Depew, of the Central-Hud son, passed through this city last Saturday afternoon oa his way to Buffalo. His private car was drawn by engine Ko. GiiO, m caarge of Seileck B. Smith, and tho run of fcixtv-ume miles between the two cities was made ia seventy-nine minutes. Three minutes were lost at Batavia while the locomotive took ia water. Just previous to the absorption of the Rome, Watertown & Ogdousburg bv the Central-Hudson the former road purchased twelve vestibule day coaches for use in its sunimr excursion business. The cars are h indsomeh-upholstti t-d and are in every way superior to the common coaches which have done service for so long on the Yaud erbilt line. "he company has decided to place these cars in use on the main line and have recently been running several of them on the limited trains Nos. 15 and 16 They will also be run hereafter on the ilyer ro. 2 and on train 3. The Erie passenger train which left this city at 6 o'clock lust Saturday morning eo.uaea wita a ireigut tram which, was 6ide tracked at Avon. The tender and bag gage oar of the passenger train were tele scoped. Le-Grand Robinson, of Hornells viile, the fireman, and Baggageman Brad ley, were caught in the wreck, and re ceived severe injuries, one of the pas sengers were injured. The fireman and baggageman were brought to this city and taken to the City Hospital. Robinson's right leg was amputated. The collision was caused by aa open switch. Water troughs are being placed along the Central-Hudson passenger tracks eas of Savannah for the use of the fast trains, The troughs are 1, 400 feet long and the water will be pumped from Seneca river, the railway company having found by analysis that the water from this river purer than any to be obtained between Syracuse and Buffalo, with the exception of the Hemlock Lake water which it takes in this city. Sixty men are at work on the new troughs and it is expected that th Empire Mate Express on its trial trip to day wul take its supply at this po.nt. AT UNION SPRINGS.

Disorderly Hou'i! Raided. In Water street last Saturday night the police made a raid 011 a disorderly house kept by William Barihoff. The proprietor and his wife, Nettie Barthoff, Lizzie 1 Tin ker, Minnie Thompson nnd Joseph Kes- ! snl were all lucked up. iartliol for keep- h-rsc nnd t-ic ulLtis for b-i:;g SPIRITS AT THE RINK Twelve Hundred People. With Anna Eva Fay, Make Tests. SAYS HE CAN OUTDO HER Reuben A. Punnett. of This City. Offers to Forfeit $500 if He Cannot Expose Every Feat Performed by Miss Fay and Perform Many More. Anna Era Fay, a lidy who has an abundance of golden hair or is it merely blonde? and au engaging smile and a claim to have what is known iu polities as a "pull 'on the residents of that other world which everybody hopes to inhabit some day and concerning which inhabitation, by the way, there will be a large number of blasted hopes, gave what she was pleased to call a seance at Washing ton lliuk last evening before about 1,1200 people. Anna Eva knows her business. The doors of the rink were opened at 7 o'clock and for a few moments things went along swimmingly. But the ticket seller was about as speedy as a Park avenue car and when the crowd really began to come he got all tangled up and as a consequence inside of fifteen minutes there were a couple of hundred people outside the door waiting to get in. The crowd on the out side got larger and larger all the time and by S o'clock there was a small imitation of a mob disturbing the usual Sundav nitrht sanctity of North Washington street. There was one lonely gray back policeman nt the door and he tried to keep the crowd from crowding but he might just as well have asked it not to breathe. There was a good deal of a crush and a large number of ladies got their toilets badly disarranged while trying to get to the door. It was 8:40 o'clock before those who wanted to get in were able to do so mid then the ticket taker put on his dress coat and began his duties as stage manager. He was a pleasant faced young fellow with a soft voice and a cute little round bald spot on the top of his head. lie made a speech in which he apologized for his inability to handle the crowd and then announced that the audience must remember that Miss Fay had been given a diploma by a lot ofEnglish scientific men for her proficiency in conjuring sjiirits and that these same men had pronounced that her performances and experiments were entirely without the aid of any outside apulkinces or confederates. The audience applauded at this and one rude boy up in the gallery said " Rats," whereat a large number of people laughed. The young man with the bald spot and the soft voice announced further that he would liave to have two gentlemen from the audience to assist him and askeil who would be a good man. A big fat man on the front row who bad been dozing awoke just as he said " a good man " and yelled out " Fassett." Then a good many persons cheered and a good many hissed and the big fat man, Feeing his mistake, dove down into his coat -l-lar again and took another nap. Finally somebody named Reuben A. l'unnett and that gentleman came up on the stage and was roundly cheered. There was a i!e:irtU of candidates for the second vacant 'chair on the platform but finally L. II. I'eurce, the tonsoiial artist, was named. lie came up and joined Mr. Funnett and the magic circle was complete. After all these preliminaries had been gone through with Anna Eva made h r appearance in full evening dress, the cabinet was brought from the back of the stag and everything was ready to bring the spirits where there has been nothing but politics and roller skating fur the past three months. There was a small post iu the center of the stuge and to this Miss Fay was fastened nfter having her hands fastened In-hind her with a lot of strips of cloth which were sewed and tied nnd fastened with court plaster and other things. Then her hands were fastened to a ring in the post and a strip was tied around her throat and the ends nailed to the post. Her feet wire ti.d together with a long string and Mr. IVaree was given the end of the string to hold. Then the cabinet whs moved up to her and she performed all the old and sterotyped alleged manifestations such as ringing bells, writing messages on pieces of paper and things of that sort. After a brief rest she went into the cabinet again and was fastened by her neck to a post and moved a guitar that was at the opposite side of the cabinet and played on it, or rather the spirits did, and did a lot of other things and purt of the audience made remarks and part of them believed. The third manifestation was with a lady and Mr. IVaree and herself sitting outside the cabinet covered all but their heads by a cloth and holding each other's hands. AYhen the stage manager put the cloth around Mr. lVarce's n -ck sornelxNly yelled "hair cut?" and everybody laughed again. Then somelody lse got facetious and told Mr. IVaree that he would tell his wife but that gentleman did not mind little things like that and held on to the hands bravely. Things were tossed about on the inside of the cabinet as usual. Then a big wooden hand was produced which was laid ou a piece of plate glass and the spirits were asked by Miss Fay to make it rap in answer to ouestii.ns. Either the spirits were not feeling very well just at that particular moment or the mechanism in the hand was out of order for it positively refused to rap and the explanation was made that sometimes it worked and sometimes it didn't. The last manifestation of the evening was the very chestnutty trick of every stage magician of lifting a table by means of the ttaliu of the hamL This trick was so old and so well known that there were a lot of hisses. This concluded the entertainment. As was before remarked, Anna Eva knows her business. She did nothing that hundreds of other mediums have not done before her, and there was 110 more aid of spirits about it than there is about sawing a cord of wood. But her work wa3 done skilfully and quickly, and was interesting in the same way that an exhibition of legerdemain is interesting. Iteuben A. Tunnett, who was one of the gentlemen on the stage, was formerly in the medium business himself, and after the performance said to a Democrat and Chronicle reporter that he would pi t up a forfeit of !?50 to sav that he could do everything tiint was done by Miss Fay, and in addition four times as many miracles as she had performed, ami expose them all to the audience. He claims that he could several times have tied Miss Fay so that she could not have performed any of the tricks she did, but that he did not care to spoil her performance, as she was a lady. Mr. Punnett is a reputable and well-known Rochester business man, nnd his offer of a $500 forfeit is a bona fide one. Arrangements are already under nay to have him give an exhibition of his power. a 7 nr f?
