He uses his influence on people with weak wills, and leads them to .sin and eternal torment. The derji iia .t; no influence over the man who won't trifle with him or run after him. He comes by sufferance and invitation. D'd you ever hear of a keg of beer running around over town hounding down men and l>oys, making them drink if. So, the men are usually chasing the keg of bs-H »r. Did you ever hear of a deck of cards chasing dowti a' crowd of alleged society wo men? Did you ever seie any of these •wMmen racing over town, Jumping njud puddles to escape the deck of cards? No, the deck of cards Afe m- iinlly taken by tlic women into some parlor.

There is no be soilin s'n. People are doing the besetting ih-^niselves. A man rides by this church on a horse. Is he be.sot- tin' the horse or Is the horse besettin' the man? Certainly not tho latter. Well, that is about the way of thi.^ besettin' s^in you hear about. Peo are riding around on the sins themselves. The speaker closed his address with .••n eloqurn: description of the coming man and Aoman. He said that the pow,->rs of man were unlimited. He is made after the image of the Creator and his complete victory over sin i^ jiossihle. What a marvelous thing man is. the marvelous thing created.

(Ottawa Rppubllc.) The Kansas City Post .yesterday published interviews with several Kan sas City lawyers .ind dPtPCtives on thp May Sapii ease. A majority ol tlie mon Pxiiresspd the opinion that Miss Sapp was murdprPd at .\foran and that SamitPl WTiitlow, who is being held on the charge of killimr her, f-ithor committed the crime or know.? who did it. One of them, hoarevor, believes in V.Tiitlow 's innocence. He is Isaac B. .•Cinibrell. prosecuting attorney of lackson county, and his opinion is worth more than that of any other man in Kans .-us City. Mr. Kimbrell practiced as a criminal lawyer first, and then served as Herbert Hadl.'»y's first assistant when tho present attorney general of Ml.ssoiirl was pros eciitlng attorney. After .Mr. Hadley'f. retirement tho oiUce went to Mr. Kim brell. Mr. Kimbrell lia.=; conducted the prosecution of every noted murder case in Kansas City for seven years and is a thorough student ot criniin ology. Here is what he told the Post about the Sapp ease: "If thi.'! young woman went lo tho home of Whitlow, In the dead hours of the night and wrapped strands of her hair arouiul the rtoor knob, tap- ppii on tliP window panes, threw the cushions from thP Jiorch chairs, into th.^ yard, and did all the other peculiar acts, detailed by Wiitlow, then she was crazy and the cutting of her own throat wiih a razor was not an unusual thins for sr.cK a person to do. \\'hitlow's actions !n running away with tho razor in his hand was not, ir. my mind, under the circumstances, a strange thing for a man who was innocent of a crime to do. "Wien he saw the young woman cut her throat—as he say .sKhe did— his first Impulse likely, rather than to have his past relations with tho girl cx|iosi(), was to flee from tho Bceon. His taking the razor home, waiihing it, bringing it back lo tho Papp home and dropping it in the yard, does not signify that he had killed .Miss Sapp and was end.;avorIng by this act to substantiate the then-y of suicide. I 'll admit that it was rrobably a fooli .=h thing for him to do. but I can readily understand how n innocent man. l .iboring under px- cilPinent might do as Uliitlow did. I wiioM want stronger evid ^'ncp than has developed thus far in this ease, i:i.()n which to convict a man of mur dcr. It struck rae that WTiitlow told a pretty St might story." WAS HE THE PEODIER? Pitlshun; .Man Says RrIrkUi .TPr Answers nesrripHon of Razor Peddler. (Pittsburg Headlight.) "A bricklayer named Shannon answers the descriptJon of the razor ped- dl .T who is wanted at Moran," stated Hugh Cillen. who working with Shannon while he was hprp. "J know he was selHng razors whilo herp as a sort of a .side linp, anil 1 think when he left here he w .Mit to Ida from here. I have pvpry rpa?on to believe that Shannon is the man who sold razors in Moran and po.'?- sibly if he could be found ho could t.-U where the razor came from which killed .Miss Sapp. "The last I heard of Shannon hi was at South Mc.Mester, I.

"s. Ther.-> is already a great deal of speculation as to what will become of the ordinance and both sides are claiming a victory.

TORCH AS A CORE FOR HERESY FAVORS EVERYTHING TO METH* ODS OF HOLY INQUISITIO^. f Death Penalty for Assault Also on Ills Lisfr—Creates Uproar Among PhRadelphla Ministers. , Philadelphia. Oct. 17.—Burning at the stake as a punishment for affinities, co-respondents in divorce suits, blasphemers and heretics, was advocated at the regular weekly meeting of Presbyterian preachers here todAy by Rev. Dr. Robert M. Patterson, a preacher well known in Albany, Chicago and Philadelphia,. An uproar was created, and the moderator stopped ail discussion in order to preserve the peace. Persons who sought out affinities should be harshly dealt with, by law, said Dr. Patterson, and the death penalty should be established as the punishment for attacks on women. Dr. Patterson had been scheduled on tho programme of the presbytery for a spech on John Calvin. The first thing he said when he got up to speak was: If I had my way about it I would have an executor called in' to deal with all heretics and blasphemers. Burning at the stake would be to# good for those - who revile religion and take the Lord's naime in vain. .The ' growth of. heresy Is such today that nothing but measures like this can slop it. : "I would requisition the services of the executor also for those despicable persons who make divorce necessary by their insidious machinations between husband and wife," "And for those who, under the guise of an artistic temperament or uncontrollable fascination, take unto them^Ives affinities, forsaking their lawful wives, I would have the law recommend: harsh punishment.' Execution also should be the punishment for ••ittacks on women." • • \i • t UTien t)r Patterson tad. 'fipljillfldr .=;pcaking the Rev.-Dr. John wieaton tho pa.stor of Mizpah Praslyjtterla^ ter reporter todayi Mr. Robin.<;on slate,! that ho had made up his mind ai^j ^^V^rcrof PhiirdelpWa. •ro;;'"toT^ to how he would vote in case ho was^ called upon but he declined to tell how he .stood on the question. Ilrt also declared that he had told ho one that he would vote against the pass ing of the ordinance. Dr. G. C. Glynn, councilman from the first ward, is opposed to tho pass- ii:g of the Sunday closing ordinance, and givos what he believes to be good reasons for his position. He says: "If ihsrc is a state law jn Kansas governing Sunday amusements, then there is no use whatever in the city going to the expense and trouble of fighting Sunday amusements. The pr^ople who want to see tho Sunday amii.-emeiii .t;. abolished should go to the state and.county officers and see that they enforce the state laws. The city treasury is not overloaded with money. If a fight should ba made against the Snnday amusemenis the city will have to stantl the cost. in-, stead of the state.. On tho other hand, if there is no state l.iw which covers the Sunday amusement question, it is hardly the duty of the city to pass ordinances which are not covered by tlie state laws:" STOCK FROM CHASE COUNTY. Many Fat Cattle Being Sent to Kansa.s City Markets. Cotonwood Falls, Kas., Oct. 17.—The heaviest shipment of cattle from Chase county to Kansas City that has occurred this season are now being made by the stockmen and farmers here. Tlie worst part of the car shortage seems to be over, and al- thotigh the Santa Fe railroad company is not supplying more than half enough cars to fill the orders, yet at the present rate shipments are being made there will be very few fat cat- Ite in the country by the first of November Last- week the shipments from Bazaar alone ran as high as twenty-five and thirty cars per day, which means from five to seven hundred head of stock. , This spring there w-as no less than 18,000 head of Texas and Western cattle shipped into the big pasture country around Bazaar and Matfield, and the task to carry this large number to eastern markets is not a small one, even when shipping fiiciUties are of the best. Still, stockmen are coaaid- ering themselves fortunate in being able to secure the number of cars they do at this time of the season as pastures are now getting iwor and if catle are to be marketed while in good once. , / FOR Clare that such pronouncement wfre too radical for expression in the present day. The Rev. R. C. McCook, "formerly, pastor of tho Presbyterian tabemacle. got to his feet with some heat and declared that instead of being radical. Dr. Patterson was ultra-conservative. He had harked back to the thought of -'• the middle ages. said.Dr. McCook, asd his ideals were those of the inquisitors in Spain ani the anti-papal religionists of Germany. "There's is no man in the Presbyterian church like Dr. Paterson today. I hope." said Dr. McCook in conclusion. This roused Dc. Patterson's ire and he started to make a spirited reply. Others tried tp speak at .the same time and (he meeting was in an uproar. The moderator presiding pounded for order and announced that to reserve the peace of the meeting further discussion on Dr. Patterson's speech would not be allowed. T.IFT IS KEEPING MOt Won't Tell Manila Papers About tlw Philippine Policy. Manilla, Oct. 17,—Secretary Taft was entertained at luncheon today by Major General Leonard Wood.
