The M. E. Conference at Oma
ha Getting Down to Work.
THE TIMK ON M KM 01 ICS IJJUTEO.
Bishop Foster Reads the Voluminous
Quadrennial Report to theCon-
1 lie Plettiouist conierence that is
in session at Omaha is getting down
to work. ThiH morning's Iiee says:
Dr. Sanford Hunt moved that a
committee on memoirs be appoint
ed. It was carried.
Dr. IJucklej spoke upon the sub
ject holding that some restrictions
should be placed upon the time and
space alloted to all written memoirs
lis said that the matter of produc
ing memoirs had at some of the
previous conferences become a sort
of bore, all out of proportion and
entirely inconsistent withjthe object
The memoirs should not be biogra
phies. He therefore moved that
fifteen minutes, and no more, be al.
lowed for presentation of memoirs
for each of the distinguished dead
Dr. Ieotiard moved that the time
be extended to twenty minutes, but
he received no second. lie believed
- that it would be shameful to allow
only fifteen minutes for the presen
tation of the memoirs of the illus
trious officials of the church who
had passed away. He thought that
fifteen minutes would not beenough
for a memoir of Dr. Iluckley him
The fifteen-minute limit for
nioirs was finally adopted.

The hour of 10 o'clock having ar
rived the conference decided to
proceed with the order of the da
which was the hearing of the epis
copal address to be delivered by
The galleries were well filled and
r-i - -a
"isnop warren aumomsnea every
body present, delegates and all, to
keep perfect silence so that ever'
word ot the important message
could be heard by all.
Bishop Foster said that his voice
would not be very clear or strong
for a few minutes but it would im
prove as he went on. The reading
of the report was attended closely
by the delegates and the visitors.
Its intense interest to the church
workers and members was attested
by the deep attention given, and
many notes were made as particu
larly important points or timely
suggestions were made.
A lengthy discussion ensued on
the question of how many copies of
the bishop's address should be
af that matter is concerned, is right
here.- Some of the conference dis
tricts are rich and havea large
fund on hand with which to care
for superannuated and worn out
On the other hand some of the
other conferences are poor and the
exporters who are worn out in the
cause find it pretty rocky sledding,
as there is little money on hand
with which to help them. It is the
proposed plan to throw all the con
ferences together in this mutter and
make all chip in to a comiiioti fund.
That's where the rub comes in.
The rich conferences don't propose
that the money that they have
saved up for their own shall be
peddled all over the face of the
face of the globe, not if they can
help it. The poor folks think it
would be a snap and of course they
are after it. That is why there was
so much discussion over it and it
isn't over yet. The friends of the I
Crofsus conferences want it all re
ferred to the committeeon temporal
economy, but the other fellows pro
test that iu that case a string with a
stone at the end would be tied
around its neck and it would never
come to the surface. They insist
on a special committee, without
which they claim they will have
TW Im ml Ork SUktaas.
Professor Ernst Curtins, the famous
Greek scholar and archaeologist of the
University of Berlin, announced a few
months ago that he had discovered that
the Greek sculptors always made the
eyes of men fuller and rounder than
those of women. The alleged discovery
was considered important, um it WAN tk-
lieved that it would lead to a proper
classification of many of the unidenti
fied heads of Greek statues. The in
however, seem to have been premature
despite the fact that Curtius. who has
been called "The Modern Greek." fa
Dr. Greef, of Berlin, in a recent lec
ture delivered before the Prussian Acad
emy of Science, declared that Curtius.
conclusions were wrong, as he had found
flat, narrow eyes thoe of women, ac
cording to Curtius in the heads of
Ureek statues of men. He had also
measured plastic representations of worn
en with large, full eyes. In nature, he
added, there was no difference between
tlie eyes of men and women. He ha;
examined recently in Berlin the eyes oi
a hundred members of eah rat ,wi
had found that they were the same in
enaie, size and form. He thus upheld
the theories of Zinn and Sommerling
that the Greek sculptors who gave a
greater fullness to the eyes of men than
to those of women did not follow the
conditions of nature. New York Tribune.

Kentucky Judicial Humor.
Ihe .Mount Vernon Signal tells
this story of Judge Robert Boyd of
the Fifteenth judicial district: "A
woman who had disobeyed a sum
mons was arraigned before him to
show cause for such disobedience,
and she shook the court house with
her boisterous eloquence. In the
midst of it Colonel Bradley walked
in and asked Judge Bojd what the
woman was charged with. "Well, I
don't know, but I think she's
charged with dynamite."
Judge Boyd is the ma.i who ruled
in a case that a man was not a dis
turber of religious worship simpU-
becattse he stood up when a
preacher asked everybody to stand
up who wanted to go to hell. The
judge held that there was no sense
in the question in the f rst place
ana tliat there was, in the second

piac, no iaw against a man going
to hell if he wanted to. Louisville
vynw reason is mat tne snow in
many localities has not been deen. and
at the same time it has been hard, hold
ing up the deer and caribou and giving
them a chance to protect themselves bv
flight. Another reason is that the
guides and hunters have learned that it
is for their interest to leave the game
alone, especially during the deep snows.
I have made it a point to see manv of
them in the early part of the winter,
and tried to make them understand that
it is for their interest for us to keen a
gooa stock of nsh and game, as they
would get more business durinsr the
The most of the game that has been

bution among his friends.
At this juncture the chairman
called the attention of the confer
ence to tne matter of a committee
on deaconess work, which was not
decided Tuesday. The original mo
tion was that the committee consist
of a minister and a layman from
each conference district and one
member at large. A substitute pro
vided that matters pertaining to the
deaconess work be left to the com
mittee on state of the church. When
the matter was brought up Dr.
I'earson moved as an amendment
that the committee consist of one

They were gathered up with care
by the clerks, and even this fur
nished a grewsome incident. As
one clerk pushed his hand down in
the mingled, muddy mass, he
brought out a bloody fragment of a
human leg, once a part of one of
the tramps killed.
The letters were brought to Lin
coin, and then it was found that
hard job was on hand. Nearly all
the letters had been soaked, and
the addresses in many cases almost
obliterated. Inspector Steen, his
chief clerk, and six othpr rlrrlca
