Omaha in regarded ns a very gny ownbut
a pliito that supports so many splendid and
bright and prosperous church papers must
certainly contain considerable religious sent
tlment. There Is probably no city of its
Blzc In the country that can boust of more or
bettor religious papers than Oinntia. All
the sheets are managed by ministers and
comprehend some of the best inliiisterl.il
talent In the city , Below Is given a sketch
Ot the best known papers :
The Midland Is not , as many suppoao ,
merely n local church paper , but Is u roll-
gioun journnl of general circulation. It has
nlrcndy several thousand subscribers.
Whllo its local patronage Is excellent und
While it has largo lists in lown nnd Ne
braska , yet its largest list by statcn Is In Illi
nois. It Is reported to have the largest cir
culation of any protcstant paper between
Chicago and San Francisco and nortti of St.
Louis , nnd the sumo Is Increasing rapidly.
Its not gain In the last six months has
bocn about 'JO per ccut.
The Midland Is so named because It Is pub
lished and circulates most extensively in the
central part of the country. It receives its
nub-head , "Tha I'nltod Presbyterian of the
West , " bccnuto it Is published in the inter-
nut of that denomination , nnd especially in
the interest of thu western part of tno
rbiiroh. 'Iho paper was founded January.
IBS ) , in St. Louis , Mo. Sceiug the advan
tages of Umahn as a more central city , and
and the advantages that a paper of u gen
eral circulation would bring to the church in
Omaha , it was bought by Rov. E. B. Graham
in IbSti nnd moved to this city. By Its information -
formation concerning the church nnd the
city , it IIIIH bocn the means of bringing a
largo number of its church people to Omaha.
A paper of Its character is an advantage
to tliu city as well as to the cliurcn.
The paper is doing a great work in bringing
Immigrants to settle in different places of
our 4ttato. Church people wish to locate
ivboro they can Hud a church of their choice.
'Through this paper ministers nnd
congregations have advertised large
ly nnd brought to our city
many of the best class of cit-
l/ens. Such n paper ns the Midland is regarded
garded ns being of no small benefit to our
city nnd to our state , because these papers
are not so generally known among business
men , they do not rcali/o the vnluo and the
Importance of such periodicals. No ngoncy is
doing more tu build up the western country ,
than the churches ana the miuistcrs who ad
vertise through the church papers so largely
tbo tulvantagcs of this country , and urge
their brethren in the cast to couio and EOttlo
Tlio editors und publishers of the Midland
in St. Louis wore : Rev , W. P. M'Nary , D.D , ,
ana Rov. A. il. Harshaw. After moving
the paper to Omaha , for a time Mr. Graham
was solo proprietor and editor , although ho
Jind the assistance of Dr. M'Nnry und others.
ln 16b9 the Midland publishing company was
formed , with the following directors : John
Li. M'Cague , J. A. Henderson , John William
son , W. M. Lorimer and E. B. Graham. Mr.
Graham owns a controlling interest in the
company , nnd Is its president and the man
aging editor of the paper.
SInce coining to ho city the circulation has
doubled. Its prospect fur the future is most
excellent. It is the only paper of this de
nomination vest of PIttsburg. It is a lively ,
vigorous and wdc-awauo ! paper , and is dis
posed to atUoeattr-aml encourage what Is
linnwti us the liberal and progressive ele
ment Iu that rather conservative church.

The Control West was started in the fall
of 1SS3 as u small four-pace weekly , do-
slynccl to give the Presbyterian news of the
city , Tlio demand was soon made , however ,
for an enlargement of its scope ID order that
the churches of the whole state might lind
representation In its columns. The discon
tinuance of the Christian Hour , which had
been published here , left a vaquum which
Nebraska abuorrod and the Central West
has Illicd. Then cnmo on the revision con
troversy in tno Preubytcnan church , and so
ably Is Mr. Henderson conducting his oppo'-
sltion to that proposed measure that the nt-
.tcntlon of the wliolo church has been called
to bis paper. Now ho has subscribers and
contributors east nnd west , aud thu succors
of the venture is assured. It Is , a largo
eight-page paper now , with all the usual de
The Central West is a breezy , lively church
paper , devoted to the interests of the Pros-
uytcrian denomination , but in no sense nar
row or blcoltcd. It goes Into , many homes
outside of that denomination \vlioro a helpful
religious periodical is welcomed. Dr. Stephen
Phoips of Council Bluffs is ono of the asso
ciate editors and has rendered Invaluable
hclntn its progress. Dr. George T. Crissman
of Hastings Is the other associate editor and
much of its success la duo to his influence
and his pen. The circulation is growing very
rapidly and iho paper will certainly bo
n credit to Omaha. Rov. Henderson
the editor who is guiding the Journal so soc-
ccssfully , will resign his pastornto of the
Snundcrs street church May 1 and devote
his time exclusively to his paper.
The Omaha District Advocate Is devoted
to the interests of the Methodist church and
is edited by Presiding Elder Cleudonuing.
It is published ouco a month und contains
eight pages , the greater portion of whloh Is
devoted to solid rending matter. It contains
krroligious u'ditorials , news from the other
churches , and Information regarding the
current history oftho auxiliary organizations
in the Methodist church.

ho will aid the congregation m Its efforts to
secure a desirable successor. The members
of the church \vero greatly surprised to hear
of liia realisation mill were loth to accept
the proffer. He gives ns his reasons for re
signing the fact that tha members of lilt
congregation are so scattered tli.it the time
consumed in attending to his pastoral duties
makes serious Inroads on his hours for
Rluuy. Mr. Martin says that
ho Is too young yet to EIVO

To dilate upon the enormity of stock as it Is well known and an established fact that we carry the
largest finest and most complete retail stock of clothing and Men's furnishings in Nebraska , de
