Zink Addresses the Odd Fellows at the Christian J. W. Gamble Speaks to Christian Endeavors at the Presbyterian. of their dead friends and brothers had been strewn with (lowers of memory, and spoke feelingly of 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 reward. 1 no uiililrou s day exercises 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, nnd to the commit too, composed of Miss Halsor, Miss Edna Morrison nnd Miss Violet Freeso, is Cue much credit for their painstaking training of tho children in the I various songs, recitation and dia-i-.. i i lOUUCS. A collection was taken for a fund which is used to educate de serving young people who have not the ready means to procure I ul il ion and books with. Mrs. R. H. Hayes made a short talk while the envelopes were being passed, tolling how great a benefit tho fund is. Tho money being loaned to individuals applying for it without interest, to be returned to (lie fund within two years after the student can earn the money Mrs. Hayes borrowed from the fund while taking her college course and appreciated tho ad vantage very much. The col lection plates were then passed by members of the Sunday school and the offering" taken. Secretary Wescott, before the exercises closed, took the oppor tunity to invito any who were present w ho were not members of any other Sunday school to be come a member of his school. The average attendance for tho past quarter was 227, but ho would like to see this increased. PLAN FOR NARROWING PLATTE RIVER CHANNEL 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 day school extension fund. At the 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. V. Gamble. Mr. Gamble is an entertaining speaker, and many of his friends took advantage of the Opportunity to hoar him again. His subject for last evening was, "Conservation of Health and Pre vention of Loss by Fire," which proved very interesting to all present, and especially to tho fire boys, who attended in a body. At the Christian Church. At the morning service Rev. A. L. Zink preached a memorial ser mon for the I. O. O. F., which order attended the service in a body, and before the service at the church a committee of the lodge wont to the cemetery and decor ated with flowers the graves of deceased brothers. The special music consisted of anthems by the choir and a solo by Miss Gertrude Stennor. Rev. Zink delivered an eloquent address, referring to the visit of the members to the silent their city of tho dead, where tho tombs From Valyrang, Neb. The Journal is in receipt of a letter from Mrs. S.

She also states that she is getting along nicely in her present home and is in every way enjoying life and tho best of health.

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.

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. Stands Operation Well.
