How much should I give
to make this a better world?
A CERTAIN man in New York filled out his -income
It showed an income so large that his tax was
53. And his total gifts to church and char
ity for the year were $148.
Think of it thousands spent for luxuries and
pleasure for himself; and $148 to leave the world
-a little better than he founjd it!
Most of us do better than that ; but not so very
- much better.
Our average daily gift for all church causes is
less than we spend for dafly papers
less than a local telephone call
less than a third of the day's car far
less than 3 cents a day "
No wonder that 80? of the ministers of America
are paid less than $20 a week. No wonder that
the church hospitals turn away thousands of sick
people a year. No 'wonder that China has only
one doctor for every 400,000 people. No wonder
that every church board and charity society is
forever meeting deficits, forever passing the hat.
It isn't because we are . selfish ; it isn't because we
don't want to help. It's just because no one has ever put
up a great big program to us, and asked us to think of the
work of the church in a systematic businesslike way.
The Interchurch World Movement represents the united
program of thirty denominations. They have surveyed
their whole task, no business could have done it better.
They have budgeted their needs; no business could have
a more scientific budget. They have united to prevent the
possibility of waste and duplication. At least a million dol
lars will be saved by the fact that thirty individual cam
paigns are joined in one united effort.
And they come to the men or women who love America
to you this week asking you to use them as the chan
nel through which a certain definite part of your income
can be be applied to make this a better world.
Only you can determine what part of your income that -saould-be"
- -.' - r,T '
It's a good time right now to answer that ' question.
We're passing through the world just once; how much
better will the world be because you passed through?

SHOOTING NOW ON
AT THE RIFLE RANGE
Soldiers from. Fort Crook and Fort
Omaha Come Down to Test
From Saturday's Dally.
The members of the military force
stationed at Fort Omaha and Fort
Crook, have commenced the spring
and summer practice on the range
north of this city and during the
summer will have both rifle and
machine gun practice at this train
ing ground. The shooting is done
by parties of twenty-five who are
brought down from the range in
trucks and taken back to the po3t
after the day's shooting, thus doing
away with the. necessity of a camp
at. the range.' The first to shoot have
been the officers who were engaged
in rifle practice Thursday at the
range. " '
The shooting will be held one or
two days a week until the officers
and enlisted men have all, completed
their course and qualified as to their
marksmanship. The practice has
made the vicinity of the range a
good place to .keep away from and
Mr. Bashus, the custodian of the
range, has requested the' public to
abstain from trespassing on the
range during the season for prac
tice, as It is impossible to keep on
the watch for stragglers that might
visit the training area and get badly
The government range at this
place being so close to the two army
posts at Omaha is especially suit
able for the use of the troops there
and during the coming summer they
will visit the range every week.
Several of the officers, on com
pleting their shooting practice here.
will be assigned to commands with
the troops in the , foreign stations
according to reports received from

T. Frank Rauen, who resides at Pearl
and Eleventh street Is mourning the
loss of a fine week old pig that was
taken from the pen at hts premises
sometime during the night and the
party taking the animal seems to
have made a clean getaway. The

was no possibility of Ihe pig getting
out-.without assistance and the night
caller seems to be ahead a good
young pig. Frank is of the opinion
that misfortunes never come singly
as he suffered the loss of a fine cow
that died and this was followed by
the death of three of his older hogs
and to top this he was laid off from
work "for the past six weeks by a se

SOME GOOD ADVICE!
Strengthened by Plattsmouth
Kidney disease is too dangerous
to neglect. At the first sign of back
ache, headache, dizziness or urinary
disorders, you should give the weak
ened kidneys prompt attention. Eat
little meat, take things easier and
use a reliable kidney, tonic. There's
no other kidney medicine so well
recommended, as Doan's Kidney
Pills. Plattsmouth people rely on
them. Ask your neoighbor. . Here's
one of the many statements ' from
Mrs. Harry Kuhney, Eighth and
Pearl streets, says: "I couldn't say
anything but good words for Doan's
Kidney Pills, . for I know from per
sonal experience 'that they are all
that is claimed for them. I use
Doan's when my back aches and my
kidneys are, not acting , as .they
should and they never , fail to give
quick relief. We use Doan's Kidney
Pills in our home when necessary
for kidney trouble,, and -they always
give good results." 'r - v

: On Friday, Fred Neben, who is
farming near Wabash, while out in
the field cutting stalks, had a serious
accident and one which came near
proving fatal to him. The seat on'
the cutter broke and in the fall one
of his hips came in contact with one
of the discs, cutting a deep gash
At first he did not think much about
the wound and unhitched his team
and took them to the barn. The
wound was bleeding quite freely so
he telephoned his neighDor, uan
Schlaphof, who took him to Murdock
but they were unable to find a doc

When he reached here he was near

The wound was given immediate at
