An Earnpnt Quakeress.
The Broadway Methodist church wns
filled yesterday morning with an audl-
once anxious to hear the celebrated
Quakeress evangelist , Mrs. Frame. For
the past few days this lady has been as
sisting In the series of revival meetings
that was begun at this church several
weeks ago. During the short time that
she has been hero she has created a
vast amount of enthusiasm , and the
church Is crowded at every meeting.
At yesterday morning's service she took
as her text James 1:18 : : "Blessed is the
man that enduroth temptation : for when
he Is tried , he shall receive the crown
of life , which the Lord hath 'promised
to them that love him. " Said the
speaker : Everything in this world that
Is worth having is born of sorrow and
toil , and the more it is worth the greater
the sorrow and toil pcccwsary to obtain
it. It is of those engaged in the pur
suit of earthly attainments that the text
"Blessed Is the that
speaks man en-
dureth temptation. " The world says
blessed is the man that has riches ,
power , influence , health , position ,
and other things of worldly honor.
Not so the text. Some say "I never
had any desire to dance , and I don't BOO
how any ono can give himself up to such
pleasure. " If that is the case you will
never be rewarded for not being a
dancer. If you have never been
tempted to drink you will never bo re
warded for not becoming a drunkard.
If there Is no attraction for you in cards ,
there is no reward for you in not being
a gambler. If you have been tempted ,
and surmounted it , you will receive
your reward , for "Blessed Is . the man
that onduroth temptation. " None will
bo rewarded but those who have been
tempted and have overcome it. Wo
need not fear that the temptation will
hurt us being tempted Is not sinning.
Temptation is an enticement to evil ,
either with or without iv desire to yield.
In cither case wo will bo rewarded if
wo overcome the inducement to give
way to sin. Wo do not know how much
dross there is until the fire begins to
burn. We need not fear that it will
hurt the gold , for it will but make it
shine the greater.
A great many want to reap the reward
without the trial. They want to be
come rich without the labor. They
want to bo learned , and If a few peeps
into a scientific book would make them
so , they would succeed very well , but
they cannot endure a long course of
study. They want to begin where their
parents loft off. They do not want to
begin at the bottom and face the cures ,
troubles and vicissitudes of lifo , but In
that way only can they-obtain the re
ward , "Blessed is the man that on
duroth temptation. " If you have money ,
a flue homo and plenty of friendly ac
quaintances , ' you think you know your
friends. It'is a mid mistake. Wait
until your wealth Is gone , then you will

The Humanity of Christ.
At the Congregational church yester
day morning Rov. G.W. Crofts preached
an excellent sermon on "Tho Humanity
of Christ. " In his introduction ho spoke
of the incarnation us a mystery , to explain -
plain which or understand which was a
hopeless task for any humitn mind. Be
cause it could not bo understood was not ,
however , any reason why its truth
should bo denied. It was wonderful how
man could put thoughts into sound , into
letters upon paper , or into signs. The
sounds given forth by a speaker were
not thoughts , and yet the speaker put
into these bounds thoughts which stirred
the heart. The letters on the written
or printed page wore not thoughts , and
yet thoughts were put into them , so that
In the reading of them the cheek was
made to turn pale , the eye to glisten ,
the whole nature stirred to grand deeds ,
moved upward toward God or dragged
downward. It was a wonderful mystery ;
still , there wan no ono that doubted but
that it was done right along. Wonder
ful it was that man could put thoughts
into more sounds or in to letters or signs ;
it eooinod no stranger that God should
express his divinity in the human form.
It was no more unnatural or strange
that God could bo put Into human form
than that thought could bo put into
The purposes of Christ's humanity
wore then suggested. Ono of these waste
to present a perfect specimen of man
hood. Whatever opinion might bo held
in regard to Christ's divinity , it must
bo conceded , and generally was , that
ho was perfect as a man. U was dilH-
cult to BOO how anyone thus acknowl
edging that Christ was a perfect man
could consistently deny that such a
perfect man must bo of divine origin.

Mrs. McMnliott'd Death.
The death of Mrs. McMahon , follow
ing so soon upon the death of her son ,
who was for a time assistant secretary
of the Y. M. C. A. of this city , has
caused much sad interest to bo taken in
the matter. The details of Mrs. Mc

widow hidy about flfty-flve years of apt1 , re
siding at Tabor. Since thb dcatti of a dearly
loved son who was killed this winter in Colorado
rado , on u train of which ho was conductor ,
it was feared by her family and physician
that her grief had caused iusanlty , as she
seemed very despondent , On last Friday
night MJR. McMahon , her daughter Miss
Etta , and Miss Drydcn , n college student
boarder , retired as usual for thu night. It
is said that the old lady was hoard moving
about In her room during the night , but
caused no uneasiness on the part of the
family. It was not until early morning
that bn going to her sleeping upurt-
ment it was found she was
gone. The alarm was immediately
given and soon the whole town , citizens , col-
Icgo students and public school pupils were
searching through the town and outlying
viemita. It was thought that ( tossibly in her
bewilderment she had started forHillsdaloto
take the train , as she often expressed u dc-
sire to visit their children living in various
parts of Pottav attainlo county. A greater
part of Saturday morning was sixjnt in the
anxious , exciting search , and It was not until
nearly noon that someone on looking into the
hotel well nearly cigty-Wvo feet deep saw un
mistakable evidence of her dreadful fate. It
was an excited , hum lied throng of neighbors
that gathered around to assist in lifting out
the remains of a beloved friend. Mr. Myers'
ropes and windhuw were brought and George
Ledgewuy nnd George Starrett were lowered
into the well. Hopes were fastened around
her nnd slowly nnd gently B"o was drawn
back into God's sweet sunlight. She was
immediately removed to her residence where
loving hands prepared their friend for burial.

Too Much lightning.
Miss Sled , one of the operators In the
telephone exchange , met with a rather
unpleasant experience Saturday even
ing. During the storm ono of the elec
tric light wires became loosened from
its fastenings and fell upon the tele
phone wires. The rain had rendered
the insulation imperfect , and the lady
received a shock that "mado her see
stars , ' ' to say the least. The current
caused nearly every drop to fall , and had
it not been for numerous ground wires
that allowed much of the electric lluid
to escape , Mist ) Sled would undoubtedly
have been killed. The opening of the
circuit caused the lights on that line to
go out , and several places were left In
darkness. The trouble was soon reme
died and the current turned on again.
It was a narrow escape for the operator
and she has not fully recovered from the
effects of it. This is by no means the
first time that the electric light wires
have been crossed with the telephone
wires and caused a scare in the ex
change. Some stops should bo taken to
prevent the possibility of these wires
becoming crossed , as the electric light
current is so powerful that borious re
sults are likely to follow.

A Cool Robbery.
Late Saturday night Olllcer Boswick
found a man wandering about the North
western depot. Ho was covered with
mud and his face was discolored and
swollen from a heavy blow under the
eye. When taken to the police station
ho said that ho came in on the Milwau
kee through freight. Ho gave his name
us Charles Usher , of Cedar Rapids. Ho
said that lie left homo for Ports
mouth to buy a farm , and
had two drafts for $500 each on
the City National bank of Cedar Rapids.
The train did not stop at Portsmouth ,
and ho was brought to Ncola , and con
cluded to como on to the Bluffs and stay
over night. After ho alighted from
the car in the Milwaukee yards he had
gone but a few rods when lie was
knocked down and robbed of all lie had.
Ho was completely dazed by the blow
and wandered around until found as
stated. Ho had ttyo police telegraph to
stop paymenton the drafts , and remained
at the station the greater part of the day.
Ho uUo lost about $15 in money and a
silver watch. Ho Is of thu opinion that
the brakemeu of the train were his as-
suilunts , but could give no description
o'f them. Thu police believe his itory
nnd nre on the lookout "Tor the

think that the drafts will bo thrown

but little room for doubt. H
Tills Is the first occiffrdhco of this
kind that has happened here for BOIIIO
time. The parties evidently intended
to succeed in their attempt , ' as Usher's

Bull Fighting in Mexico.
A correspondent writes to the Chi-
crgo Tribune from Mexico : Outside in
their dark pens the bulls are shut up
awaiting their turn to be precipitated
into that bright arena , there to give
thirty minutes of their lives to mortal
combat in an encounter where the
chances of escape or revenge have been
scientifically reduced ! to it minimum.
No torero desires to fight a fcull the second
end time , for a bull oncohtiying had ex
perience is a dangerous customer , and
will follow up his attacks , and almost
surely kill or gore his antagonist.
There is n great silence all over the
vast amphitheatre , people holding their
treath , the bull is qoming through a
winding , narrow ptibsugo to the door
which will open and admit him to the
scone of carnage. His dullj roaring is
heard us ho is goaded on toward the
door. Then the door opens , and you
might hear the full of a cambric hand
kerchief , so profound is the silence.
Ladies' cheeks are pale , and oven man's
faces have become fixed and rigid. The
tensions is tremendous. The bull enters
the arena with a savugo bound , and for
a moment is stunned by the shouts ,
cries and yells , and ho is dazzled by the
bright sunshine. He stops a moment
and is a study of animal bewilderment ,
mingled with rage. On his shoulders
was placed , as he entered the "monu , "
which , nt the outhot , decorates each
bull. This bull is named Rcspotado ,
and ho wears a decoration of broad
ribbons of the colors of Mexico and
Spain yellow , red , white and green
and all covered with golden spangles ,
and , sitting in the midat of the tangled
ribbons , as iu a nest , a stuffed bird of
brilliant plumage. The Spanish ribbons
bens bear in gold letters the motto ,
"Viva Mexico , " and the Mexican ribbons
bens , "Viva Eapantu" Respetado is a
tremendous bull , brought , as were all
the rest of his taurino companions ,
from Spain , at a cost each of
$1,000 in gold. His horns are big and
sharp , and ho pawn the ground in a tro-
monooiw rage. Soon ho discerns a pic
ador , and makes a mad rush ut man and
horse , but the picador , poising his lance
and bracing himself In his high backed
saddle , receives the bull's charge most
valiantly , and inserting the point of his
lance between the bull's shoulders ,
keeps off. It was a tremendous charge
well met , and elicits thunders of ap
plause. The capcudores then attract
the bull's attention with their flaming
capes of red and yellow' , and off he
dashes after them , some just saving
themselves by vaulting the barrier Into
the narrow space mentioned , which
winds around the ring. The bull charges
another picador , and is kept off again
There are other charges and other re
buffs till this act is over. Then out go
the picadores on their horses , and
in como. the bandcrillos with
the bandorillas in their hands , each
man carrying two. Those are short
sticks covered with ribbons and colored
paper , and barbed with steel in such a
manner that , when siuck into the bull's
shoulder , they stay placed , unless
shaken out by a great effort on the part
of the beast. The gj-oat feat , and the
solo object of this part of the fight , is
that the bandillero shall place his darts
in a space not bigger than a dinner-
plate between the bull's Bhouldors ; and ,
in order that the bull may have fair
play , the performer milst carry his arms
at the right moment between the bull's
horns , while facing the animal , and
stick the barbs deep into the shoulders.
The bull mutt not be approached from
behind or from either slue ; M must bo a
fair face-to-faco encounter. That this
requires nerve , quickness ; and precision
of eve is to bo imagined. How would
you like to bo standing in front of u bull
whoso horns are perhaps reddened with
the blood of horses , his head lowered to
catch you if ho can , while you have ,
under 120,000 eyes ; to pass your arms be
tween his horns and plunge firmly into
his shoulders the darts you carry In
either hand ? And , as you 'do ' this , you
must skillfully turn to ono side and just
avoid the horn of the bull us ho ad
vances. This is u wonderful exhibition ,
and never fails to bringjipplauso.
