The terms proposed by the miners
for the continuation of work after the
expiration of the present agreements
at midnight Thursday will admit of no
compromise so far as wages are con
cerned. On most other qestions, how
ever, there is room for argument,
and the general trend of opinion
among men and employers was that

Anderson Gets Five Years.
Hastings. Neb. Judge Dungan
Thursday imposed a sentence of five
years at hard labor in the state peni
tentiary upon Arthur Anderson, negro
slayer of Arthur Newell, following a
plea of guilty to the charge of man
slaughter. The case was disposed of
without trial by jury and was in line
with an agreement between counsel
for defense and the county attorney to
save the county expense, much hav
ing already accrued through the case.
On the plea cf guilty to the charge
of grand larceny. Judge Dunday sen
tenced O. R. Johnson to one year in
the state penitentiary. Johnson stole
some clothing from a traveling sales
man last December and traded them
for an organ, which he shipped to his
wife in the western part of the state
for a Christmas present.
For what shall It profit a man if h

Or what shall a man Rive In exchange
or his soul? Mark f: 3t37.
Few words are more familiar in the
msiness world than profit and loss.
Men go into business for profit; it Is
.he object of their thought, of their
.oil. They deal in the gcod which they
aelleve will produce profit, and if any
:hing Is handled at a loss it is for tbo
sake or maintaining a market or for
some future advantage. Will it pay?
is the question ever on the lips, or.
What Is there In it for me?
Now. one of the striking character
istics of Jrsus Christ was that he
.ooked back of the things that are
seen, back of the material to the un
seen nnd spiritual. He knew absolute
ly the right value of things. Money
had a value, pleasure had its place,
food must be considered to Us de
gree of necessity, but these ail were
secondary to the soul. The person
using these things was of infinite
value. We deal too much with the
superficial, we are taken up with the
things that perish, we become In
volved with the lesser, even worthless
Ihirgs of life: Jesus Christ never.
He was the light of the world and
sorely did the work of his day and of
3ur day need the illumination which
he brings to the relations of life. We
need to see as he saw if we are to ba
saved from fatal mistakes. So In
this matter of profit and loss Christ
realized perfectly the comparative
value of the soul and the things to
which men gave their thought and
Iheir lives, and it was out of his In
finite wisdom that he uttered th9
warning conveyed in the question:
What shall it profit a man if he gain
the whole world and lose his own
Men were making the fatal exchange
every day when the question was
asked, and he who came to be their
Saviour saw and felt as no one else
of earth ever did the tragedies of such
lives. His question implied that the
soul of man has a greater value than
the whole world of things.
The soul Is the immortal part of
c:an. We understand by it here the ,
.'spirit, which has a body. We are j
children of God, with capacities for .
knowing him. fcllowshipping with him,
growing in grace and knowledge.
