Noleman, G V. Jones, John Lcith, Kay,
Desch, and Dr. Moore. Nothing of vital
importance in the case any more than has

The versatile Edgar Howard says that
three good women in Columbus organized
a theatrical and restaurant business for the
glory of God and the benefit of tho church.
Each devoted a week of hard work to the
enterprise. The gross proceeds of the
show and the eat-fost were thirteen dol
lars. The actual cost of the business was
thirty-seven dollars. The Lord only knows
what his share amounted to, and the hus
bands of the three women well, they are
still paying bills, all the while trying to
look pleasant, hoping against hope that
some day their wives will get converted,
and quit imitating Governor Mickey in the
dangerous occupation of claiming business
relations in partnership with the Lord.

DEATH OF REV. HOWIE
After a Uriel Struggle with Illness
the Good Man Gives Up
Rev. William M. Howie, pastor of tho
I'nited Presbyterian church of this city,
died at the parsonage of that society Sun
day morning at two o'clock. Ho had not
been in robust health and recently con
tracted a severe cold that developed in
lung trouble. The patient declined rapidly
and life's dissolution was peaceful, ns to
one who wraps the drapery of his couch
about him and lies down to pleasant slum
ber. The old saying, "As you live so you
shall die," was forcibly illustrated in Mr.
Howie's life. He was a man of refined
character and his kindness of heart drew
nil toward him. Possessed ol a Iolty in
tellect, with a thorough education, he was
a power in the field of labor to which he
was called. He labored for the church
from coast to coast, and with the rare gifts
given to him by the Creator, ho returned
talent for talent. In the summer of kjoi
Rev. Howie came to this city and as pastor
of the U. P. church his little flock pros
pored both in a religious and material way.
Two sons and a daughter together with
his devoted wifu arc left behind, but in the
separation they has'c the solace of reflect
ing on the departed father nnd husband
with serene contentment, or in other
words, with that peace of mind which the
world does not afford.
The remains wore taken to Washington,
Iowa, Tuesday night for interment ac
companied by relatives nnd friends. In
the evening the last riles were observed
wherein nil '.he ministers of tho city took
