YOUR PATRONAGE S0UC1TED
"How did you enjoy your trip to
Kansas?" "How did you like the con
vention?" "You had a Rood time at
Kansas, I'll bet!" or the like were the
questions and greetings t lint were
showered upon one individual when he
came back from Kansas City on the
morning of the 5th of January last.
Truth to say it was no enjoyment or
good time either; it was an experience.
If an enjoyment it was certainly of the
very highest order. After his pas
sage through the different countries
of the world, the writer had spent
good three months at a stretch in Lin
coln with its bad roads, frequently
made worse by the thawing of the
snow; he was growing tired of the
same university campus, the same
passing greetings of friends and the
sinic stony, indifference of equally
well known faces! And he was mighty
glad when the invitation came.
There was a pretty big crowd at the
M. I depot, and as soon as the dele
gates boarded the train and it hard
hardly started, the spirit of the con
vention began to be felt amongst the
delegates. Professor Drummond made
a short but inspiring speech. Kind
ness and fellowship were at an over
flowing. The next morning was rather chilly
and the delegates had a busy morning
in registration, and in finding out their
allotted quarters. The first session of
the convention was Interesting, but
not very much impressive. On the
New Year's day there were some stir
ring addresses. Amongst those besides
Mott's, were the appeals of a Chinese
and a Japanese gentlemen. Mr.
Harte was brief, but anyone who went
to India could not miss the sympa
thetic tone wrung out of Ills heart.
The Nebraska state delegation con
sisted of more than one hundred men
and women and Mr. Slmotuls headed
the Nebraska party. On the 2nd this
large party dined at Williams' lunch
after the morning session, and they
were photographed. In the evening an
invitation from a most unexpected
quarter came, and the writer had to
start out with Mr. Ewing almost ignor
ant about where lie was going. It was,
however, under the auspices of the
Y W C. A. that he was entertained
by a most hearty group of North
American Indian ladies and gentlemen
and in spite of the stories heard by
him in India of the queer nature and
tendencies of these people they seemed
to be more kind, courteous, social and
sincere than many people of so-called
high breeding and dazzling civilization.
Not only they did not hurt him in
any way, but they have made a very
agreeable and lasting impression upon
his mind.
Another Invitation from an altogeth
er unknown quarter waited on him the
next evening. It was from a young
lady who had sent out her automobile
to fetch her guest. Once seated in the
auto he knew not whither It pro
ceeded. It took long and It seemed
that KniiBas City was left behind, but
presently the auto entered Into the
portico of a garden house and the
hostess appeared as soon as the boll
was rung. She had come with the
talked nnd talked and talked about
the poet and his poetry and was lost
in thorn. The "Gardener" and "Gitan
jall" she had committed to memory,
and had given them away to friends to
buy new ones again. She had another
guest from India, whom sho asked
what he had come to study In Amer
ica, and being told that It was philos
ophy, she said: "Fhat India, to study
philosophy here!"
Hryan addressed the audience the
same evening and he talked In n com
mon sense way, which, however, is an
uncommon power In a political lender.
Nebraska did not. however, miss the
opportunity to give him her special de
votion on the occasion.
The last session of the convention
was the most memorable one. When
the volunteers, men and women
stood up In prayer, singled out from
the rest of the audience, the writer
met the countenance of a young lady
standing by ills side--glowing all in
divine love and faith, her eyes be
speaking the true Christian resigna
tion. After prayer her moistened eye
lashes and flushed face might have
been a fit model for Raphael's pencil j
and would have been worth ten thou
sand sermons preached and to be
preached in foreign non-C'hristian
count rl's, for she was so very much
Christ-like the while that any one who
runs might read it. The Hindu honors
and appreciates this idealism and has
deep fath In its efficacy.

caused by the resignation of Gellatly.
Mr. Spier assumes his new duties im
mediately and though handicapped by
