the friendly lies existing between
brethren of the order, and said:
"In thus pulling our trust in this
friendly order wo are not deprived
of any conformity to religion, to
(lie laws of our country or the
luly we owe ourselves. Wo can
illy be Odd Fellows when we act
like honest, men. In our lodge wo
do not attach undue imnorlanoe
to outward appearance, for often
men are not what they seem
to be."
The morning service at
First Methodist church yesterday
was one which will bo memorable
in the history of the church and
one which brought an hour of un
usual pleasure and spiritual up
lift to both pastor and people. As
the, result of a quiet but faithful
effort of the pastor, llev. Austin, a
class of forty, thirty of whom were
adults, was received into the com
munion of the church.
The service was one of (ho most
impressive and devotional ever
held in the church. It was con
ducted by the pastor in a manner
completely exemplifying the
beautiful nnd sacred rites of the
ritual in the sacraments of
baptism, the reception into mem
bership and at last the admin
istration of the Lord's Supper.
The congregation whs large, con
sideling the inclement, weather,
and to this cause may be altribut
ed the absence of many members,
as well as about lift eon others of
the class for membership, who
were detained.
Such nn occasion as this speaks
much for the steady growth of the
church, both numerically and
spiritually, and is gratifying in
deed to the pastor, whoso faith
ful labors in the pulpit and per
sonal work llnd here their rich

drew a large congregation in t tic
evening, the auditorium and the
lecture room both being tilled to
their full sealing capacity. The
exercises were of great interest,

exercises closed, took the oppor

At the Presbyterian Church.
i.miuren s nay exercises were
held at tho regular hour of the
Sunday school and consisted of
music, drills, recitations and
songs by the younger members of
the school. A collection was
taken for tho benefit of the Sun

morning service Rev. r.ade
preached to a good-sized con
gregation, considering the threat
ening weather. The special music
consisted of an anthem by the
choir, the solo part being sung by
Miss Mathilda Vallery. At the
evening service the Y. P. S. C. K.
had charge of the service, and the
meeting was addressed by former
Superintendent of City Schools J.

proved very interesting to all
present, and especially to tho fire
boys, who attended in a body.

Engineer Gerber Makes Report to
State Railway Commission of
Investigations Made.
A special from Lincoln says
that tho narrowing of the Platte
river channel and subsequent con
fining of the river to a small area
of bed, involving considerable ex
pense, but which would be ex
tremely profitable to the people of
tho state, is tho subject of a re
port just made to the state railway
commission by one of its most
proficient engineers, C. H. (Berber.
Mr. Gerbor has made many in
vestigations along the old stream
and ho has spent a great deal of
time forecasting tho outcome of
the work should his advice in the
matter bo followed.
Among other things, the rail
way commission's expert believes
that a channel from CO to 800 feet
wide could lie made to contain all
tho water that now wanders aim
lessly over some 2,000 to 3,000
feet in river bed width. He be
lieves that the decreased cost aris
ing by reason of the shortened
bridges would alone pay for the
work and that part of the present
bed of the river would bo reclaim
ed to tho amount of several thou
sand acres of land from Fort
Laramie to the mouth of tho
stream. This narrowing and
straightening of tho river, ac
cording to Mr. (ierber, has boon
too long delayed and should be
taken up within the next few
years. Mr. Cicber's plan contemplates
merely tho placing of obstruction
in tho river bed in such places
that when tho river itself forms
sand bars il will have done a
great deal of tho work through its
own force. While engineers have
boon studying power problems on
the Platte in the past few months,
Mr. Archer has been ferreting out
ways of preventing floods and of
making tho river generally more
useful and less expensive to the
people of the state.

ly of the reception accorded the

longer time was used in some
towns than was expected when

out of the city by. members of the
Commercial club and were given
a hearty welcome. The parly was
taken to the Elks' club rooms,

At Kansas City, Kansas, and in
Kansas City, Missouri, the re
ception accorded the party was
very warm and everything was
done to welcome tho boosters. The
dailies in the city all devoted
quite an amount of space to tho
visitors ami encouraged uiem in
their good mission. The Kansas
City Post, took a picture of the
parly and their car and placed a
four-column cut, which distinctly
shows the features of each mem
ber of the Omaha parly, with Mr.
Pollock of Palttsmouth well in
tho foreground, designating Mr.
Pollock as tho builder of a $25,000
wagon bridge over the Platte
river, shortening tho route from
Omaha to Kansas City thirty-five
miles. The party was royally re
ceived and treated by the Com
mercial club of Kansas City. On
their return trip the party en
countered muddy roads from
Leavenworth to St. Joseph, hut
after that the road was good.
