Rev. Father Huntington the Missions
at St. Paul's Episcopal Church were
opened last night before a large con
The two ministers who represent the
Order of the Holy Cross, and who con
ducted the services, proved themselves
worthy of the reputation they were
given in advance of their coming. Their
talks were plain, straightforward, and
earnest, and the impression gained is
that their highest Interest is in the
saving of souls.
During the service they wore the
garb of the Order of the Holy Cross,
an Order founded twenty-three years
ago by Rev. Father Huntington. This
garb consists of a full-length gar
ment, loose and flowing, of cream-col
ored flannel. The cowl is worn
hanging freely over the should
ers and at no point in the service was
it placed in position about the head.
Suspended from the neck was a small
black cross that was thrown into all
the greater prominence by the white
background of the robes. About the
waist was a heavy black cord, thrice
knotted, and extending nearly to the
ground. Each cord ended in a heavy
knot instead of a tassel.
The opening service, following close
ly the ritual of the church, was con
ducted by Rev. Father Huntington.
During this part of the service Father
Hughson was absent from the chan
cel, though he entered just at the
close of the last prayer.
Sermon By Father Hnghson.
The sermon was delivered by Rev.
Father Hughson. The text was taken
from the Sermon on the Mount, "Be
ye therefore perfect, even as your
Father in Heaven is perfect." With
this as a basis Father Hughson built
a strong sermon, marked by plain
straightforward English, an absence of
bewildering adjectives, and a logical,
Attention was called to the fact that
in the breast of man there is an un
quenchable longing for perfectness,
which the speaker construed as proof
that man was born for perfection.
Added to this human longing is the
divine command to be perfect, and
because God commanded perfectness
Father Hughson held that it was pos
sible of attainment.
Continuing his argument, he held
that the longing for perfection and the
command to be perfect was proof posi
tive that man was intended for God
that his sole purpose was to fit him
self for God. To this certain acts,
known as acts of faith, are necessary,
acts which are meant to signify that
man has put his trust in God. The
sermon closed with a strong plea to
his hearers to take the initial step
The Infractions Given.
The "instructions" were in charge of
Father Huntington. Great earnest
ness marked this part of the service.
At times the speaker stepped from the
chancel down into the aisles in his de
sire to come closer to the body of his
listeners. He was almost constantly
leaning far-forward. The simplicity
of the language, the nature of the dis
course and the earnestness of the ques
tioner made it a seemingly easy thing
to hold the attention of his congrega
Two questions formed the basis of
the instructions: "What is needed to
make you a success?” and "How shall
we know God's purpose?" Taking up
the first question Father Huntington
called attention to the facts that pur
pose is essential to success as purpose
less action can result neither In suc
cess nor failure. Purpose presupposes
will and was defined as will in action.
The answer to the first question then
came with the statement that each
man is a success who fulfills the pur
pose of his life, the purpose represent
ed by the will of Him who made him.
Impressing of Facts.
The second question was answered
by calling attention to the three pow
ers which have been given man. in
tellect, feeling, and will. The duty of
man was then defined as striving to
known God, to love Him with all his
heart, and willing tc do His will. When
this answer had been given, the
speaker requested the congregation
to repeat after him both the questions
and the answers. This was done sev
eral times, until a steady, uniform,
answer had been given.
When this had been accomplished
Father Huntington said simply,
"There's a fact. There's a fact. And it
is a fact to which your own conscience
will bear witness." Two short illus
trations of the facts brought out were
then given and the services dismissed
with the benediction.
The following is the programme for
the services during this week: Holy
communion, 7:30 a. m.; holy commun

FROM THE SOUTH.
From the New York Sun (Rep.).
The Hon. Thomas Collier Platt has
introduced into the Senate his bill for
reducing Southern representation In
Congress. Several representatives have
brought in similar bills.
It may be assumed, however, that no
bill on the subject will become a law.
Nor will it be necessary for the Demo
crats to rely upon obstruction and in
terminable talk In the Senate.
There is one sufficient reason why all
the activity of the gentlemen now so
hustling with reduction bills will come
to nothing. The "Solid South” is a
great help to the Republicans. It is
a definite political advantage to them.
They may threaten, but they will not
do anything. They are perfectly con
tented with the present state of things.
A reasonably Solid South is enough for
