In face of the severe storm that was
raging Wednecday evening, a large
crowd assomblcd to hear Bishop Frank
M. Bristol's sermon on "The Ubo of
tho Boat." To say tho people were de
lighted is to put it too lightly. Such
dramatic eloquence the pooplo of North
Platte perhaps never heard before. His
message was ono direct to the heart of
both tho laity and tho ministry. Every
man felt the weight of tho argument,
and ns the Bishop made his appeal for
a broader and more brotherly church
each man felt it in his heart to make
his church such. Following tho sermon
tho men resorted to tho Masonic hall
whero a delightful banquet wa3 served
by the ladies. About GO men were pre
sent. Prof. Tout, prcsidont of tho
local Brotherhood, made an address of
welcome which was followed by another
address by the Bishop. This was a livo
messago to live men. His themo was
"Tho Laity" and every man felt his
heart burn within as the appeal was
made for a higher manhood.

In Burma, tho right bank of the Irra
waddy Is hilly, and In tho nolghlior

ings to the supremo power, It being
generally believed that such acts of
devotion count to tho builders' credit
In the next world. The pagodas are
of all kinds, according to tho means
of the builders, from primitive white
washed structures to ornate erections
with grotesque glided lions. The lions
have various meanings, but stand
chiefly ns u reminder of unselfish de

of a lioness who nursed nnd guarded
