A Large Number of Neighbors and Frienis
Asss.Trtie as a Farewell Party.
Ke. J uiil'. for 1J years pastor or the
church three and one half miles south
of Louisville, through the help of his
congregation has erected one of the
finest brick church edifices in Cass
county, and also improved the parson
age from a desert to a beautiful living
place. Mr. Junr expects to make his
future home in Taylor, Texas, where
he has accepted a position.
In recognition of his past services to
the church, and as a demonstration of
the high esteem in which he is held by
his congregation, neighbors and
friends, a crowd, estimated at 300 peo
ple congregated at his home a few
days ago to show their regret at his
A regular program had previously
been prepared for the event, which
consisted of music, both vocal and
instrumental, after which Rev. Baum
garrtner delivered in a most feeling
manner a farewell address, in which
he wished Mr. Jung good luck in his
new home and extended God's bless
ing and help on the long journey for
the family and in their new home.
The flowing tears were evidence of
how dearly beloved their pastor was
and is yet to them. A collection was
taken up and $t presented to Mr.
and Mrs. Jung.
Refreshments were greatly in evi
dence, also. Two tables were spread,
seating fifty persons at a time, and
one who was present, says the tables
fair!y groaned their weight of good
things, such as only the good old Ger
man housewives can prepare. Such an
abundance is hard to describe, as after
all had partaken to their heart's con
tent, there seemed to be enough left
for another 300.
The day was enjoyed in various
pleasantries as suited the older ones
present, while the children were made
happy in their own way of enjoyment.
Everybody had a kind word for Rev.
Jung and his family, and when the
parting hour arrived it was an other
scene of tears when they were taking an

Will Build a Nice Home.
D. W. Foster, of Union, was in the
city today making arrangements with
Contractor L. G. Larson, for the erec
tion of a new seven room house, which
will be modern and up-to-date in every
respect. The new structure is to be
erected upon the sight which the old
house occupied, and where Mr. Foster
has lived for a long time. While Mr.
Foster is, and continues to be a resi
dent of this county, most of his prop
erty interest are held in shape of the
farm on which he lives, in Otoe coun

the residence is maintained, twenty
acres, is in Cass county, while the bal

hundred acres, is in Otoe county.

for about four years, died last even

The late Judge Donahue, husband
of the deceased, practiced law here for
a number of years, and was elected to
the office of police judge and justice
of the peace. The two old people
were very quiet and sociable, and
earned and retained the respect of all
who knew them. Since the death of
her husband Mrs. O'Donahue was a
part of the time living in this city,
making her home with Joe McCarty.
When it was not convenient for her

The Speaker Was Greeted by a Yery Large
Audience Monday Evening at the
Jude William J. K lng, of Chicago
addressed a larte audience at the l'ar
mele theatre Monday evening from ti e
standpoint of Christian S:ientist.
The speaker is a member of the First
Church of Christ, Scientist, of Boston.
Mass., and is a very able and pleasing
ta'.ker, and his audience was consider
ably impressed with the rranner in
which he presented his subject. At
torney Byron Clark introduced Judge
Ewing as follows:
Lamks ami Gknti i:mkn.
1 assume your presence demon
strates that, like myseif, you are here
to investigate, ever ready with atten
tive ear and balanced mind to hear and
analyze the offered demonstration of
all theories and creeds w hich tend to
uplift our cause. Tonight our lecture
will be on Christian Science, whose
ad vacates claim that it hears the pan
acea of the human ills: that this pan
acea is only the demonstration in a
concrete form of power of God over
the present generation. We do know j
that in our vicinity it has marshaled
in its ranks some of our best minds
and best citizenship. We know that
in our physical ills are the result of
some violation of God's physical laws.
We know that in this practical age it
is the visible fact which convinces.
All of our present utilities are demon
strated theories, by the proper appli
cation of existing principles.
"So our Christian Science friends
claim, not something new, but the
rehibilation and application of the first
of the Disciples. To he in such actual
contact with him now that his inilu
ence becomes visible. Like the exca
vators in the ruins of the buried cities
present to this generation priceless
relic sof the centuries gone, the Christ
ian Scientisis have excavated from the
bible forgotten treasures of thetaith
of our fathers I bespeak for the
lecturer an audience in whose mind
the seeds of truth will germinate, and
to the audience, I bespeak a finished
exposition of the faith by an exponent
who has been an eminent educator, an
ellieient prosecutor of the state and
nation and an honorable member of
judiciary of Illinois, who has few, if
any peers, on the platform, before the
bar, or on the bench.
'I ask your fair, honest considera
tion of the issue which is the storm
center of our world thought, by one
whom I am honored to introduce to
you, Judge Wm. G. Ewing of Chicago,
who will now address you."
: Judge Ewing said in substance: "It
is no part of my purpose to take any
thing from you, but to add to the good
you have; I have no quarrel with your
church; I only commend the sweet
ness and love and song of my own, and
thank God for the sweetness and love
and song of yours. I believe there
never has been an association of con
scientious men and women for the pur
pose of building up God's kingdom
that does not today rest as a
benedictioa on the world. I believe
that all religions are worth nothing
unless they are lived. The religion of
Christ, is not a religion of ceremony,
of word, platitudes, professions, con
fessions, or creeds, but of works, of
fruits and true Christian living.
What we do, not what we say, deter
mine our relations to God, and a
declaration of our belief in the infinite
is best expressed in the attitude in
which we retain to our creator, and
our relationship to our fellow man.
We believe that God is good, is the
Great Physician, who heals all manner
of diseased; who gives sure ase to sor
row, wipes away all tears; and is the
source of all life, strength, and joy,
and is the redemption for every ill.
Our contention is, that God is good
yea, infinitely good, now and forever,
for he is without shadow of turning.
One can count on the fingers of one
hand all the great religious reformers,
of which the greatest wa3 Martin
Luther, but he, great as he was, could
not prevent an organization from be
ing named after him; so, also, was
John Calvin, and he could not prevett
a large following from calling them
selves Calvinists and the two Wesleys,
have a large following of Wesleyn
Methodists. But the founder of this
great church, great as it is, has so far
kept the organization entirely free
from any name, such as Eddyism."
Arranging for Product Display.
D. Clem Deaver, claim agent for the
Burlington was in the city today,
where he was completing arrange
ments for the arranging of a car to be
used for an exhibit car. A passenger
coach is to have the seats all removed
and to be used for the arrangement of
the products of the harvest fields of
the western part of the state, and
other northwest points reached by
the Burlington. The products will be
so arranged as to show what the
country is capable of producing. This
car will with others make up a train
which will be exhibited on lines of
the Burlington in Iowa and Illinois,
and probably over lines of other roads
in the east.

C. II. Warner and family had a very
narrow escare from serious injury.
There is a very deep ditch washed out
at the side of the road. The night
was very dark, and one could not see
the way, and fearing that they were
too near the washout, Mr. Warner
stopped his team and got out of the
carriage to ascertain where he wan,
and finding he was on the verge of the

the horses to get away from it, and
the horses backed into it throwing all

Almost a Murder.
Last Friday evening about 7:30,
Abraham Glasgo snd R. S. McCIeery
became involved into an altercation,
and the the bone of contention, or the
disputed article, was a bottle of
whiskey. It was down near the foot
bridge where they were imbibing and
after the rough and tumble was over
Mr. Glasgo's face and neck showed
long deep cuts from a knife. One leg
was also cut near the knee and the
hand with which betried to gua:d
himself was slashed twice. Doctor
Rickard dressed the wounds, and took
more than twenty stitches in closing
them. He said it was a hair's breadth
from the juglar vein which if severed
