present, enjoyed themselves to the
utmost After a luxurious supper,
dancing was the attraction, the
music being furnished by a musical
prodigy, a little girl naimed Oliver,
only ten years old, who played the
violin with all the skill and ease of
an accomplished musician. Alto

been drowned. She went about
the streets Mapping bitterly, and
gazed for a while at the Mjssouri
river from the foot of Farnham
street, in hopes of dropping her op
tics on her truant boy. She failed
to find him, and was advised to ob
tain the assistance of a policeman,
as she dreaded to continue the
search, being fearful of the result

appear to be as thick as ever. The

lying in the streets, till they become
offensive, when the authorities are
notified, and have them removed
accordingly. Marshal Snowden

The Eloquent Lady Revivalist
. Begins Her Second Crusade
Against the World, the
Flesh, and the Devil.
Synopsis of Her Sermon Sun
day Morning on the Para
able of the Sower.
Immense Attendance at
A large crowd gathered Sunday
morning beneath the tent that has
been spread just north of the First
Methodist Church, corner of Capital
avenue and Seventeenth street, to
hear the celebrated Mrs. Maggie
Van Cott, the eloquent lady reviva
list, who, during last winter, awak
ened a new interest in religion in
Omaha, and converted a large num
ber from the extensive ranks of the
sinners. It will be remembered that
her meetings during her first ap
pearance, were so largely attended,
that man3 were turned away al
most every evening, so we predict
it will be on this, the occasion of her
second advent The audience that
assembled yesterday morning, were
able mostly to find seats within the
tent, while a long row of seats to
the east of the pavilion, was filled.
At the south end of the tent, a
small shed had been erected, for the
choir and the pulpit.
The Star-spangled banner formed
the glorious canopy under which
Mrs. Van Cott prayed, preached and
She began by stating that she in
tended to give every one iixo privi
ledge of joinlng.in the services by
putting something into the contri
bution box and by participating in
the singing of the hymns. At
her suggestion the collection was
taken, while everybody joined in
sfnging, "Now I can read my title
clear," in which she led off, and in
duced the others to follow, by ex
claiming, "Let everybody sing."
It was noticed by Mrs. Van Cott
that the persons sitting on the out
side row of seats had been slighted
in the matter qf tho collection, and
she remarked that they should not
be forgotten next time. This hint,
like some of the seed sown by the
wayside, fell into good ground, for
a young man immediately passed
around his own hat and handed
over the amount of the collection.
Mrs. Van Cott took for the
subject of her sermon the
parable of the sower. She had
come back to Omaha to sow
the seed of the Holy Ghost, and she
hoped that it might fall into some
hearts and bring forth, some thirty,
some fifty, and some an hundred
fold. On her way to this city she
had noticed the sower by the way
side put in the seed with great toil
and patience. He went across the
field again and agqji. Tlie sowing
was not' always accomplished in a
day or a week. Had she gone to
him and said, "I see no fruit," he
would have replied, "I sow
in hope, and shall reap in
joy." Again, by faith, she beheld
hiin gathering the rich, gram wheji
the harvest came.
She came to-day as a tiller of the
spiritual soil of Omaha. She
wanted no word uttered that would
be lost She spoke to some, to
yhom sb,o hat spoken before. She
caine to soyv the sped qf Godfs jn
flnjte glory; she spoke words of
truth, which she hoped would fall
into some hearts, lke the sepd. by
the wayside, She divided her hear
ers into several classes. Some
were entirely glvon to sjn and
worldllness; others there were,
who, after hearing their pastor, or
herself, said : "It did us so much
good, we will -be better." There
was another class who received the
word, and who would be found
talking of reljgjon if there was a re
vival. Mrs. Van Cott here related an in
cident, which showed her powers of
conversion, one met a gentleman
at Taylor's Falls, Minnesota, a man
of jnfluenpe, a leading lawyer, who
ought to have been a Christian, but
who wasn't He attended her rer
vivals night after night
"Why are you not a Christian,"
Mrs. Van Cott asked him.
"I have no feeling," was the re
ply. "But you have common sense,"
"Yes madam," answered he.
"Then you have knowledge,
which Is better than feeling."
"I was once a Christian, but
now iny Heart is narqeneu," said
"Will it ever be so?" asked Mrs.
"My wife for four years has failed
to soften my heart. I respect you,
madam, but you are wasting your
time on me," said the flinty-hearted
"Very well," said Mrs. Van Cott,
"I will pray with the wife."
She left the Immovable heathen
for the time being. She had preach
ed Sabbath afternoon. Some one
had put a bunch of dry hickory
leaves upon her desk. She passed
down the aisle, pressed a gentleman,
(the lawyer) by the hand, and left
the dry leaves in his palm. She
passed on with tears in her eyes,
and pleaded with Christ to save that
man. Again the gentleman came.
She never went near him. The
words that had been sown had fallen
Into good ground. Those leaves did
it Finally, that man wanted his
name put on the church records.
"Go to Minnesota to-day, and ask
for the leader of the praying band,
and they will poinc out to j-ou Law
yer Walker," said Mrs. Van Cott
The revivalist here made a gen
eral exhortation to come and receive
the engrafted words, to come to the
Saviour and be born of God.
She then indulged in a self-congratulation
that she had been able
to plant the standard of Christ on
the Pacific Coast, where to-day there
are hundreds and thousands shout
ing "hallelujah !"
She blessed God that she stood
beneath the stars and stripes as a
daughter of Columbia, and under
the blood-stained banner of Christ,
which she had planted on the At
lantic Coast, in the South, at New
Orleans ; she had gone to the Lakes,
to Minnesota, Minneapolis, St Paul,
and Taylor's Falls, where she had
converted 250 souls. So all around
the Union, the cry was going up to
Him who is able to keep us from
falling. "Glory to Him, and not to
Sister Van Cott," exclaimed she.
Mrs. Van Cott continued by stat
ing that she expected to go on
sowing the good seed, and should
not stop until she had sown it
everywhere. She had come to the
"hub,-" (of all wickedness; we sup
pose.) She wanted all to gather,
not around her, but under the ban
ner of the Lord.
She took occasion to indulge in a
general exhortation to temperance,
and made it the more impressive by
the relation of several affecting in
cidents, and concluded her sermon
by another exhortation, to become
soldiers of the cross.
The services concluded with a
hymn, and the benediction.
in the afternoon
a reunion of all the Methodist
Sunday school children was held at
the tent The attendance of both
young and old, was very large, and
the exercises were of an interesting
IN THE EVENING
the revival began in earnest, the
morning services having been
merely introductory to prepare the
ground for the seed. The crowd was
Immense; ovory seat within the
tent was taken; tho yard was filled;
people lined the sidewalks
and leaned over the fences,
to catch the words of
exhortation that fell from the
lips of Mrs. Van Cott After the
preliminary services, Mrs. Van Cott
went about through the assemblage
asking this one and that one to come
forward and be converted ; and for
those who could not be induced to
join the army of the Lord, prayers
were offered up. Some fifteen or
twenty persons received the seed
sown during the day, and the Lord
thus reaped a quick harvest.
The meeting continued till a late
hour of tie night, with good results.
Mrs. Van Cott is awakening a re
ligious zeal in Omaha, the like of
which has never before been known
in the history of this wicked city.
