Election Contest.
Judge G , W. Norris of Beaver City was
i at the Capitol , yesterday , to answer to
the petition filed by Judge Welty , asking
the supreme court to canvass the
' vote of that judicial district. Iii-
stead of filing au answer Judge Norris ,
by his attorney , John T. McClure , filed
t two motions. The first asks that Judge
Welty be required to make his petition
? ; more definite and certain , especially in
4 + . regard to the facts constituting and
causing the mistakes of the various
judges and clerks of election under
{ which they refused to canvass and count
votes in several precincts mentioned by
the complaint. The second motion asks
s that paragraphs 2 to 12 , inclusive , of the
} i petition of Judge Welty , be stricken out ,
s because tliey'are inconsistent with para-
' graph No. 2 , which charges that returns
r were tampered with by C. A. Anderson
and Judge Norris , and that frauds were
committed in the form of forgeries for
the purpose of depriving the plaintiff of
the office of district judge.-Lincoln

An Instructive Lecture.
The lecture in St. Patrick's church ,
last evening , by Rev. J. L. Harringtou

Republics and the Monroe Doctrine" ,
was interesting , instructive and pleasing.

odist church , Robert McIntyre , the famous -
ous orator , will deliver this lecture on

Robert McIntyre is among the most
brilliant lecturers in America today.
The subject chosen deals with the follies
of the day ; is full of sunshine , pathos ,

miss this opportunity to hear a superb
specimen of oratory , humor and pathos ,
and matchless word painting.

the church.

dewed in the way of voice and physique
for the lecture platform. He is also gifted -
ed with a vivid appreciation of the
beauties of nature , a strong sense of
humor , and a happy choice of language ,
all of which make his lectures a delight
to be long remembered"-London , Canada -
ada , Free Press.

rhetoric , native humor , and genuine eloquence -
quence impelling the hearers to outbursts
of loud applause"-Chicago Times.

never delivered in Jacksonville. We are
glad to say lie has been re-engaged for
the same lecture , so that hundreds more
can hear him"-Jacksonville Courier.

in Republican City , last week : Elder
Miller of the Christian denomination
conducted the meeting. The interest
was quite intense , the meeting house
being entirely inadequate to the deniand
for standing room even , many failing to
gain admission. There were 169 confessions -
sions , 13S.imniersionS-tlie balanceS baying -
ing been previously immersed. A Christian -
tian church with 120 members was or-
ganized. The remaining convertsjoined
other churches , or are still undecided as
to where to make their church home.
Photography Located the Bullet.
The experiments with cathode photography -
tography applied to surgery are being
carried on at McGill university , Moh-
treal , Canada , with great success. Last
Friday morning , Prof. Cox experimented
on a patient of Dr. Kilpatrick's , T. Olson
Gunning , who had been shot in the left
leg , about Christmas. The wound had
closed up. The leg was photographed ,
and , though it took forty-five minutes ,
the bullet was found.

The Boston Globe voices a general .
plaint in these words : "It is time to
call a halt to those superzealous pedagogic -
gogic doctrinaires who are ever striving
to increase the study load in our public
schools. Instead of requiring more of
the hard-worked little people , the pressure -
sure of school work should be materially
lightened. As so-called 'education' is
carried on in some of our cities studies
become a veritable nightmare to the unhappy -
happy sccholar who does not happen to
be uncommonly apt at learning. He
takes his school cares and his school +
puzzles not only to his fit-siit c , but to
his bed , and not infrequently worries
over them half the night. There is such
a thing as making a fetish of a school 'i
curriculum. Let our school committees x
see to it that the tendency to crowd ,
scholars is checked , even if a few fads
in education are sacrificed to the cotn-
fort and health of the 'rising genera-
tion' . "

"God Is Love" .
I have often thought , if I were a
preacher , I would take the above text
and go to every church in McCook and
try to counteract what satan has been
telling-that God is not love. He has
made the world believe it effectually.
It would not take twenty-four hours to
make the world cone to God , if you
could only make them believe that God
is love. If you could only make a man
believe that you love him , you have won
him ; and if I could only make people
' believe that God loves them , what a rush
we would see for the kingdom of God.
But nran has a false idea about God and
he believes not he is a God of love. It
is because he does not know him. John ,
who was better acquainted with Christ ,
telling us about this love God has for the
perishing world says : "Beloved let us
love one another for love is of God
and he that loveth not knoweth not
God" . Just let us look again and see
what he says : "For the Father himself
loveth you because he loveth me and
believed that I came from God" . I do
not know but what Christ felt that there
might be some of his disciples who
would not love the Father as they loved
him. I remember for the first few years
after I was converted I had a great deal
more love for Christ than for God the
Father , whom I looked upon as the
stern Judge , while I regarded-Christ as
the Mediator who had come between me
and that stern Judge , and had appeased
His wrath , but whe > lI got a little better
acquainted with my Bible , these views
fled. Alter I became a father and woke
up to the realization of what it cost God to
have His Son die , ' I began to see that
God was to be loved just as much as His
Son , Oh , think of the love God must
have had for this world , that He gave
His only begotten Son to die 4for it.
