The fair weather Sunday drew
largo number cf peopto out to the services
at the various sanctuaries of the city.
At the FIrit Prcabjterlan church Rev.
W. J. Harsha preached to largo audiences
both morning and night. In the oven-
nlng , ho delivered tbo first of a aorloa of
lectures on "Common Sense In Religion , "
similar in pnrpcsa and nature 'to those
ho prepared some four or five years ago ,
and which proved so popular. Following
la a synopsis of the lecture ! "Why are
dlfllcnltles to be found In the Blblel"
In answering this question there are
two mala points to bo considered the
origin and the uio of biblical difficulties.
As to tbo their origin wo must re
member how many men worked on the
Bible , how far they were separated by
tlmo and space , No two , scarcely , were
permitted to confer together. They wrotn
independentlyoften took different vlowaof
persona and thingi , had different modea
of arranging their teachings , and differ
ent methods of reckoning tlmo. Hence
came about the apparent discrepancies of
Tnen , too , thoBlblo uses popular Ian *
gnage. It seeks to reich the popular
heart. It does not attempt to teach
philosophy or chronology. It speaks of
the sun rising and setting and uses lan-
guigo na an ordinary , mean would. Wo
spc k of the battle of Bunker Hill.
Everybody knows that tbo battle did not
occur upon Bunker's ' Hill but on Breed's
Hill. Yet no ono la deceived by the
popular way of speaking of It. So with
Aa to the use of the difficulties of the
Blblo much may bo said. They stimulate
thought and arouse investigation. They
show the analogy between nature and
the written word. One God is therefore
the author of bath.
Bat the hard sayings of the Bible also
chow the Importance of the spirit over
the letter. There can bo no mistake
aa tj the meaning of God when ho
promises pardon &nd life to all
who will believe. This is the
ooul of tha Blblo , all else Is the compara
tively in significant body. The difficulties
cling not to th's aaul , they concern the
moro lettering and numbering of bible
truth. God says In effect , lot the letter -
tor go , cling to the spirit , accept of par

Blblo will not long disturb you. There

OMAHA , S pt. 14. Mr. Wagner Dear sir :
[ n nuiwer to your challenge to trot your
time Phyllis gainst Joe Davis for 31.003 n
side , wo have to-night covered your forfeit of
851)0 ) in the hands of Mr. Gnrnoau , and name
Saturday , September 11) ) , as the tlmo , making
only tbo usual provision of good day nnd
rack. Vourn truly , Gnnixs & COMINGS.
While the BEE man was reading the
taper Mr. Garnoau came In , and Mr.
Jammings at once handed him COO and
laid ho would make the final dope sit the
light before the race. When the pro-
Imlnaties had bcon settled Mt. Cam
ming * continued :
"Mr. Wigner has a great mare In
? hylll3 and thinks ho can boat almost
my man's horse. But ho undorostinutco
ho speed of Joe Davis. Wo htvo , by
ciroful management , held the horse out
ot tbo fast chases , while Phyllis has been
; oiog in the 2:15 : and free-for-all races. I
hink 2:15 : Is about the right mark for
ho mate , and I know Joe Divij can do
mlle at thoaimo gilt. Why , at Olovo-
nd ho finltbod under a strong pull In
! :17 : , being pulled all the way up the
lomo stretch. If lot oat ho wonld have
ono the mile in 2:15 : sure. The next
lay Phyllis had to trot for all she was
worth to got out in 2:15i. : I don't know
f two horses that are moro closely
matched , and while I can'fc pretend to
name the winner , yon can bet it will boa
lorsu raca from stare to finish , and the
joldlng will get to the front If ho can. "
Following Is the challenge from Mr.
Wagner , to which reference la made
"OiiABA , September 14. To Grimes &
/ummlngs , Gentlemen The result of the
ace Saturday between my mare Phyllis , and
our boree Joe Daxls , is unsatisfactory to me
n many ways. Whllo I drove
s bard and fast as the condition
ion of tbo track wonld then permit , and
was beaten , I honestly believe that I should
iavo won tbo race had I not have giveu up
be pole in the second heat. In order to set-
to the matter I hereby challenge you to make
t match for $1,000 a side , for a race of mile
leuts , best three in five , to be trotted over
he Omaha track any day this week yon
nay name. To show that I mean business I
iavo this day deposited $500 forfeit with
'uacph Garneau Jr. , and write you to cover it
without deUv , provided you want to trot
your borne. If you accept this challenge , and
depieit 8500 forfeit with Mr. Garneau , I will
meet you at any time and place you may dca-
gnate , to eicjn papers and arrange conditions.
Yours truly , CHAKLSS WAGNER.

Lieutenant from Ulg South
t. Louis GIo'ia-Damocrat.
Lieut W. A. Stunk , Euhth United
States cavalry , and Mias Mor/ill , daugh-
er of Fust Chaplain Merrill , were united
n the holy bonds of wedlock at flort
31 rk , Tex. , one bright and rosy morn-
nt ; In early Juno last. IVo hours after
ho Cvrj-nony was performed , and
rhllo brldo and groom , surrounded by
dolr congratulatory frloudsgtlll lingered
ver the snmptunns wedding breakfast ,
n order waa received from headquarters
Irecting Lieut. Shunk's com
pany to teko the field
gainst Geronlmo , the Apicho
Jhlef , and his band of rojtlosti , ducon-
ented and blood thirsty redskins. It
was hard. Not a doubt of that. Bat
hero WAS nothing for Lieut. Shank to do
rat bid his blushing and weeping bride
good-bye , fling himself Into the aaddlo ,
nd ride away after the Apache mlasro-
nte. It coon bacarao evident that the
impaign agalnat tbo Indiana wonld be
eng and tedious , so Peat Chaplain Mor-
11 decided to return with his family in-
luding Mra. Lieut. Shnnk , to their old
lome In Atlanta , Ga. Thus the separa-
! on between the rudely aoverod man and
wife becimo wider and moro complete.
All summer long Lieut. Shunk , with his
company , scouted through Ar.'z > na , In
) uratilt of the Apaoho band , while bis
> r&vo and pUlent wlfo quietly awaited
its return at her old homo away down In
Georgia. Two weeks ago Llout. Shunk ,
still la the field , was overwhelmed with
oy and pleasurable anticipation
3y the receipt cf an order detailing him
; o attend the cavalry school at Fort
Lavonwortb , Kan. As may bo Imagined ,
ao was not long In obeying this most
welcome order. Upon reaching Fort
Loavenworthhoroadily aecurcd a short
eave of absence , telegraphed Mrs.
Shuuk to meet him ia St. Lou ! ? , and on
Mtnd y the brldo and groom were re
united at the Santhom hotel in this city.
Tholr long deferred honeymoon will
donbtlesa prove unusually happy , and
will bo marred by uo fears cf a second
mddon and uncxpocted separation.
