1 SERVICES WERE HELD IN HOUSE
OF NELL BAILEY.
WOMEN WERE MOVED TO TEARS
Words of the Gospel Fall Upon Ears
Unused to Bible Verses People
Seldom Seen at a Funeral , Attended
Services for Man Who Was Shot.
Too Bailey , killed in the light Mon
day night , Is In his grave. The fun
eral sei vices were hold at U o'clock
at the liouso of Nell Bailey , east of
the city , and burial was In Prospect
"Hill cemetery. In n'tendance ut the
, . " "cr-rnl wore Nell Bailey and inmates
< ty ' * ; esort ; togi ther with women
* % / ' * ' houses in that district.
* . / / / -Mion was delivered by
Rev. ° //c c , the First Con-
gregatloi. < V/ ° ' who used his op
portunity to 0 * an appeal to per
sons who had uJt listened to gospel
words in many a long year. A hymn
was sung by Mr. Solomon and C. C.
, Gow , both members ot the choir In
the First Congregational church
There was something of the pa
thetic , something of the tragic in the
funeral service over the remains of the
11tin who was shot and in that house.
IL Is but a slop from one emotion to
another and so it was but natural
tlu-t people accustomed to laughing at
Jlfu , should bo cast down with tre
mendous gloom when confronted with
tragic death. And tears that welled
up In the eyes of those women showed
that , for the moment , there wore ser
ious thoughts among them.
Mr. Turner made a plea for a light
against sin. He made mention of the
laxity of law enforcement in Norlolk
and censured the mayor and police
for their part In the affair. The sermon -
* mon was brief. The hymn sung by
Mr. Gow and Mr. Solomon was , "Soon
Will You and 1 Be Lying in Our Nar
row Tomb. "
As his text , Mr. Turner had chosen
( / Isaah 53:5 : , "But he was wounded for
our transgression ; he was bruised for
. \ our Iniquity ; the chastisement of our
j peace was upon him ; and with his
itripcs wo are healed. "
What Mr. Turner Said.
Mr. Turner said :
Our city has been Illled with gloom
by this tragedy. . Much might bo said
regarding the way and lives of these
men who died by each other's hand.
Something might be said regarding
the lux enforcement of laws in our
city and its inevitable result. It
would not be easy to decide the share
of guilt allotted to the two mon In
the tragedy , and the citizens who have
permitted such lax city officials
through long years.
But I wish today to turn our hearts
to the cruslfied Christ , bruised and
wounded for our sins.
"But ho was wounded for our trans
gression ; he was bruised for our ini
quity ; the chastisement of our peace
was upon him ; and with his stripes
we are healed. "
For it Is only hero we gain a just
conception of aln. As we stand by
the cross of Christ , we see what sin
costs what it costs man and God.
It Is here we learn to hate It. If my
sin means a suffering God , n cruslfied
savior , I can strive to learn to hate
It. It Is here by the cross of Christ
wo learn our own value to turn , how
ever sinful we may be. No price
eeems great near the price with which
we have been priced. Shall It be in
vain that such a price was paid ?
We need a moral revival In our
ty , in our country , but Christ crusl-
lied is the only doctrine which can
r-reate this moral reformation.
It Is the dynamical power of God
enables me to meet niy dally tempta-
tlons , to front them In confidence
and to overcome them.
David Bralnard , who hated sin In
tensely , says : "I find my Indians
begin to put on garments of holiness
and tholr commou life begins to be
sancitiiled oven In a trifle when they
are possessed by the doctrines of
The only power adequate to main
tain a more moral city Is the procla
mation of the cruslfied one.
The gospel of God suffering for sin ,
reveals the holiness of God and gives
the power to reform and renew our
' But this doctrine must be proclaim
ed with a compassion in which it
As Christians wo need to pray that
we may never become hard.
Our need Is greatest here. We
blame the mayor , the police. Wo think
of the broken law and of the power
How often do the Christian people
of our city feel as John Wesley foil
when ho preached In the wickedest
city ho had ever seen , Newcastle-oil-
Tyne , such blasphemy , such cursing ,
such swearing , even from the mouths
of little children.
But when ho preached to them , he
chose this tender text : "He was
wounded for our transgressions , ho
was bruised for our Iniquity. "
And when ho had done , the people
Just clung to his hands and clothes.
Ho had brought them to the Master
and to the cross.
If wo arc to gain this spirit of com
passion wo must live near the cross
ourselves. We shall then bo able
to speak the every word to win them.
Wo shall enforce the law because
we love men and because wo know
tko Inevitable tragedy whenever the
law of righteousness Is not enforced.
And the Invitation today is to nil
to come home to the Father who
loves us In spite of our sins ; and who
suitors for us and with us. And
whoso mercy none M us shall escape.

ROMANCE OF RANDOLPH FARMER
IS BADLY SHATTERED.
HE SPURNED WOMAN ANGRILY
Believing That the Woman Whom He
Went to Meet , Was Single , Phillip
BccKcr of Randolph Found a BUI for
the Divorce She Was Getting.
Sioux City , la. , Sept. 13. Coining to
Sioux City to bo married to "Miss"
Sophy Story of Correctlonvllle , who
answered his ad\erltsument for a wile ,
and who mel htm al the station ay ho
alighted Irom the train , Philip Becker ,
a well-to-do larmer of Randolph , Neb. ,
alter taking In the sights at the Inter
state fair , left lor bis home today , wife
less and unhappy , his coiilldenco in
womankind sadly jarred.
Tinough the medium of lotlers ,
Becker gave Iho Correetlonvllle wo
man a description of himself and how
he would bo dressed , and when the
train pulled Into the stulion yesterday
morning yhe easily picked him out
Irom among the throng ot fair visitors.
They had agreed to moot hero and lie
married and then take In the fair bo-
lore returning to their homo at Ran
Alter a few minutes convorsallon
ut the station , however , between the
two matrimonially Inclined people , the
deal was declared off by the Ruudolpl
larmer. The woman , in arranging the
details for the wedding , handed the
farmer a bill for $ o5 , stating that It
must bo paid before the marriage took
place. His Investigation revealed that
the money was to pay lor her divorce
liom her husband , which la now before
fore the courts , and that Instead of a
single woman , ho was courting a mar
ricd woman , whom , ho claims , was
using him as a means to free horsel
from undesirable matrimonial ties
Although lu all of her letters sbo
signed herself as a single woman
the cruel truth that she was a married
woman fairly staggered him , and tak
lug the little daughter who accom
panled him he leit the woman ut th
btutlon and went to the fair ground
to drown his grief In the excltemen
of Hie lair allractious and pink Icmoi
Thought She Was Single.
"That woman led mo to believe tlm
she was single , " ho declared. "Who
1 ai rived here , however , she wantei
mo to pay for a divorce she Is gettln
1'ioin her husband.
"I'm an honest man , " he continued
hotly , "and don't want to realc up
any married couples , and furthermore
1 would not be a party to the smash
ing of any matrominal ties. "
When he told the woman to be-gono ,
a scene took place at the station , and
a ciowd of men and women gathered
around the couple while they were set
tling their differences. Taking his
little girl by the hand he pushed his
way through die ciowd and was soon
lost to sight , leaving the woman who
was to be his bride alone with his dis
appointment and wrath.
He Is Still Game.
Dismayed by the failure of his first
attempt to secure a wife , Becker still
says that he Is in search of one ,
and that he has $1,000 in cash to sup
port the woman who takes his name.
"I do not want any of your city
women , " he said. "A middle-aged
woman , who will make a good molher
for my children , and who was reared
on a farm , is the kind of a woman I
am looking for. I have ? 1000 in cash ,
and as soon as I lind a wife I will buy
a farm and live on it with her. "
Mr. Becker said that he has five
children , and that he perfers a German
woman , one that has had experience
on the farm.
