Jtopentnnoo nnd Itoinlssioii of Sins.
The pleasant weather and the well known
eloquence of the pastor combined to fill nil
the pows in the First Presbyterian church
yesterday at the morning hour , nnd Dr.
Phelps delivered one of his characteristic
and powerful sermons. Ills subject was the
necessity of repentance for the remission of
eins , and his text was found in the 47th verso
of the " 4th chapter of Luke : "And that re
pentance nnd remission of sins should bo
preached In Ills name among all nations , co-
ginning at Jerusalem. "
Sin i nn ever present fact , nnd has been
In nil human history , and is an ail-controlling
factor in human misery. It has put its
blight upon all. A euro for sin ou ht t o bo
very complete. It is this more than double
euro for tbo accursed evil that Jesus
commanded ull his disciples to
carry to all the earth When
this command was laid upon his
discipleslief had Just forgiven the multi
tude who had Bcoffed nnd Jeered him upon
the cross , and had prayed for the pardon of
Ills murderers. The command la moro than
double , In tunt It connects the sins of this
llfo and the llfo to come. No one will repent
but God will permit him and help him.
"Knowoth thou that the goodness of tha
Lord leadoth us to repontancol" Allllctlons
sent upon us by the Lord load to ronentaneo.
At pcntccost the influence of the Holy Spirit
brought multitudes of sinners to repentance ,
saying , "What shall wo do to bo saved I"
The text Is part of the command that Jesus
lakt'Upon his church to preach repentance
ana remission of Hins. The whole theory of
Christ's work Is repentance , emphasized by
miracles. The whole theory of God's com
mands to His people , when analyzed
and examined , Is simply ropcntnnca , nnd
remission or forgiveness of sins follows as u
But repontor.cn may come ns tbo last act
of lifo. Judas repented when ho returned
the bloody coins to the Pharisees and wont
nnd hanged himself. True repentance hates
the sins thct make us wealthy and glvo us
power as truly as the sins that bring us to
prisons. The sins which mnko men wealthy
nro the sins most slow to bo repented of.
Juuas , lushed by conscience and Huurncd by
the men who hud used him to commit the
blackoit crlmo of hlstoy , repented when ho
hanged himself In his desperation. Hut
Judas could huvn been forgiven hud ho
passed tha Human guard and bowed before
that lowly prisoner erownod with ttiorns.
After repentance nnd remission of Bins
comes obedience. I must obey after I have
repented. God in faithful to farglvn , nnd
His blessed Son forgave Ills torturers oven
whllo they were nicking Him with ttio most
fearful agony. It was so throughout all His
ministry. The publican wont away Justified.
Tha woman whoso Bins wcro scarlet re
pented and Jesus , In the presence of the
proud Purlscos , turned to her and said :
"Woman , thy ulna nro ninny ; go und sin no
more. " There Is Joy In heaven over one
sinner Riivcil , Thu echoing rings of my
voice , if they could only bring ono to re
pentance , would bo wafted up thora and
tart the glorious anthems of golden trum
pets , "Though thy sins uro as scarlet , they
hall bo whiter than snow. "

The attorneys for the defendant in the
ca o of Jaion Walker v City of Council
Bluffs , othcrwloo the F.ilrmonnt park case ,
will today Illo n cross bill In the fedonil
court that will ba very liable to create n full
grown sensation. It was Intended to Illo the
document Saturday , but this fact bjcamj
known to THE UEB , and the attorneys there
upon determined to hold It until Just before
court opancd , In order that Its contents
ml ht bo kept secret until the lajt moment.
The clerk of the United States court was
given to understand that the document
would bo filed Saturday , but It did not ap
pear , and ho was then notified to bo on hand
nt n certain hour In llio evening. Ho was
there nnd so vm a But : reporter , who had
been waiting for hours for the appearance of
the Important paper.
It was qulto late when Messrs. Flnley
Burke nnd G. A. Holme * finally appeared
and they wore closeted with the clerk for
some time , giving directions about the paper
und the Hsunnco of certain other necessary
documents. They were leaving the bulldlne
who'i thuy discovered that their care und
secrecy were about to provo futile , na the
scribe had secured possession of the coveted
document , Mr. Holmes accordingly How

they be held until todav. pcndiug further
directions. It was desired to keep the con

In relation to the matter , but it U understood
Unit they are afniid that the case would bo
promptly dismissed If the attorneys for the
lilnmillt , Messrs. Wright , Baldwin and Hal-
dune , should obtain any idea of the contents
of the mysterious cross-bill. The counsel
for the defendant docs not want the case
dismissed , as It Is desired to have question
of title fully uii'l finally settled at trio pres
Despite the great secrecy nnd apparent
mystery connected with the cross-bill , u part
of Its allocutions have leaked out. It will
provo especially interesting to the law flrm
of Wright , Baldwin & Haldanc , ns many of
the nllegutlo'is have directroferonceto them.
It goes into details nnd shows by wtiat moans
they have sought to obtain possession of the
park. The cross bill consists of thirteen
oases of typo written manuscript , nnd con
tains a great deal of matter that will make
vsry spicy reading. Thcro is another paper
that will not bo Hied Just at present , und that

of ,1nson Walker , the plaintiff In the case.
As may well be imagined , ho tolls some
things that hava not hitherto boon known to
outside parties , und his statements will bo a
sui prise to the linn that is tr.\tng to got pos
session of the park.This deposition , however ,
will bo held in reserve for the present , aud
will not be sprung unless the opposing law
llrm manages to survive the shocks of the
cross bill , when It will bo pushed into the
ring to give tlio llnal knock out. It Is under
stood that the counsel for the dofouso wants
the ease taken out of the Ir.w calendar and
placed nn the eijultv sldo of the house , und
will use this deposition as u cine to secure that
concession , which will very probably bo
It is stated by intcrostoJ parties that the
city's side of the case Is now nil right , and
that the big chunk of/jriof that was alleged
by some to bo in store for the city will bo
found in the other fellows' box whan the
proper time comes. As the matter now
stands the public may expect to see ono of
two things either the case will bo promptly
dismissed within a few hours or there will

Joiinotl'rt matrimonial Venlurm.
It is cluiiricd that thcro are two sides to
every story , und there is certainly another
ana much moro interesting side to tha story
ot the matrimonial troubles of Mr. and Mrs.
W. 11. Bennett than theouu that has already
been published Bennett Is , or rather was ,
the totreetsvillo butcher who was arrested in
January last on complaint of his wlfo for
adultery with ono May Morgan , sporting
woman. As is well known to readers of
TUB Bci : , the trouble was patched up , and
Bennett deeded nearly all his property to his
wife. Everything apparently wont along
smoothly until about two weeks ago , when
Bon'ictt again skipped out , und it was al
leged that ho had again taken the Morgan
woman with him.
A tow days ago Mrs. Bennett left for
Sioux City , stating that her husband was
working there on the railroad , nnd she was
going to him. This is briolly the story as it
has already appeared , and publto sentiment
lias been very stroutrly in favor of Mrs.
Bennett. Her husband has been sovjroly
censured , but the principal share of the
blame- has been laid on the Morgan woman ,
wl'o was accused of coming between Ben
nett and his wifi > .
It BO happened that the Morgan woman
could not be found nt homo whenever she
was called on for her story , and for this rea
son her side of tlio CASO has never bjou pub
lished. A reporter saw her last evening ,
however , and she told n story , which ,
if true , will place. Mr , W. H. Bennett
in a very uliuomfortnblo position ,
Said she : "I have been gravely misrepre
sented by the papers all the way through ,
nnd 1 have been censured for things for
which I am in no way to bluino. I am
charged with living In adultery with Bennett
nott , but I don't see how they can make that
out when I am his wife. "
"Thou he Is-a bigamist ! "
"Of course ho Is , provided the woman who
has lived with him for years und calls her
self Mrs. Bennett is his lawful wife , and I
huvn no reason to believe Hint such Is not
the caso. Bennett is n bigamist , and that Is
why I did not como out ut the time of the
first trouble and dcclaro myself. I could
have easily cleared myself , but to have donu
so would hnvo resulted In sending him to
the penitentiary for from three to
llvn years , and this I had no wish to do.
Now , however , I nm ready to do this and
that is why I toll the story. I cauio to this
city ou December 0 lust , and I mot Bennett
on the llth of that mouth. On the Ulnt wo
were married , after an acquaintance of only
ten days. Ho told uio that ho was a single
man and I boiluvod him. "
"Didn't you know that ho was living with
another woman I"
"Yes , 1 know about it , but ho told mo that
she was not his wife and I did not doubt U ,
for I didn't suppose that ho would marry
another woman with his own wife living but
a few blocks away. Wo wont to Omaha and
wciu married by Justice Farquhar , and
Attorney llltt and the sou of Con
stable Stain were the witnesses. I have
my marriage cortlllcato to provo that.
Ho gave his name there as W. A. Bell , and
hotold , mo that that was his right name , but
that ho had been going under tha name of
Bcnnutt bccauso ho was living with this
other woman , ntid if it should got out ho
would not want his real name known. Now
you can judge whether I lived with him m
adultery or not. i'ho lint that I know o (
the real facts In the case was when Bennett
brought mo a UKH containing the story of
his arrest and what purported to ba thn
facts with reference to myself , Ho then
owned up und told mo that ha was married ,
and as I thought a great deal ot him I kept
out of the way nnd did not make attempt
to deny what was said about me.
I moved to Omuhti , and I have lived there
over since. When wo were married I had a
nicely furnUhoJ homo that I had earned and
paid for. I bad f 1,100 worth of furniture ,
but he wanted mo to cell It. I sent fSUO
worth to my mother in Illinois and nold the
remainder In Omaha for | J5. I don't Know
as I would over have mild a word , but when
be wout away the lam time the paper * cutr
out ngaln and said that It was supposed ho
hntl gene w'tn ' me. Iwai tckat the time ,
but now that I iim up again I Invo tnndo up
my mind to put n atop to It. The papers also
say that I am it sporting woman ,
but I nm not , for I nave been
trying to do right for over year.
Thcro Is nothing gained by lying nnd I will
admit that I WAS asportlnir woman In Omaha ,
but that was three years Ago. I was In
Blrdlo Mann's house when I first entered
upon that llfo nnd I was afterward nt Pearl
Mncko.v's , but I bocatuo tired of It nnd quit
It. I paid n line there for some time , but
whan 1 decided to reform I want to tha chief
of police and told him so , After that I paid
no more lines until I canio over hare. Tha
ofllcers came to my house and demanded my
flue nnd I paid It , That was because Ben
nett was coming to my hoiisa nnd I didn't
want any fusi raised. It's hard enough any
way for a woman to cut loose from such n llfo
and the way the papers have treated mo
has ma-lo It all tha harder for me.
Mrs. Hennott sent for mo n week ago last
Saturday , and I en mo over to see hor. I
suppose Hho wanted to see whether or not I
had really pone with her husband , as I had
a perfect right to do. I told her Just how
everything was and aho asked why I didn't
hava hltn arrested for bigamy. I told her
that I didn't want him nont over tno road.
She treated mo very Insultingly and accused
mo of coming botwaon her nnd her husband
and ruining her family. 1 told ncr that I
did not do it knowingly , but It was no use.
I suppose she lias gone to him now In Sioux
"Wouldn't you go to him nealnl"
"Yos , indeed I would , nnd I would go with
him if ho didn't have a dollar. I think moro
of him today than she docs , although ho has
treated mo so. "
"Yet you propose to send Him to Iho pen I"
"Yes , sir. If I can't have him she shan't.
I will Illo an information against him to
morrow. I have consulted with County At
torney Mahoney , and I will BOO him again
tomorrow morning. His assistant told mo
it would cost qulto a sum to prosecute the
case , but I don't ' ace why the state shouldn't
prosccutu criminals without expanse to inc.
They think I have money , but it Is all gone
nnd I must go to work tonnrroxv. 1 have a
place as chambermaid partly engaged. I
know that Uonnott has friends at work for
him , for It was only a day or two. ao that
some ono wont to both the witnesses co our
marriage and asked them If Bcnnutt wasn't
drunk at tno time , and they both said ho
was perfectly sober. "
"Was your reputation spotless up to the
tuna of your coming to Omaha tbroo years
ago ! "
"Nothing was said about me , but It was
becauss other parties prominently connected
were interested nnd no ono dared say a word.
I v/as sent to the college at Dlxon , 111. , when
I was fourteen and remained there six years.
My bills were paid by u board of trade man ,
who was one of the director * of the collaco ,
and afterwards suicided bccauso ho lost his
money in speculating. Ho drugged mo ono
night nnd attempted to ruin mo , but was dis
covered. There were few who know It nnd
ho sent mo to school to square himself. I
visited him at his ofllco very frequently up
to the tluio I loft school , but no
ono dared to say anything against him.
I would have married him if he had lived. I
was in Omaha at the time , but went back to
the funeral. My parents nro respectable
people , and I will not say where they reside ,
although it is in Illinois. I didn't intend ;
though , to give you all my past history , but
only so far as Uonnott Is concerned. A re
quisition will very shortly bo secured to
bring him to Omuba. He will have to bo
tried there , as that Is whore wo were mar
ried. Folks will find out that I did not try
to break up any man's family. If Bennett
will cot n divorce from his iirstvifo and
marrv ' mo over again , all well nnd good , but
if ho'won't do that ho will have to go to the
penitentiary , and ho can't dodge it because
ho mixed UD his names. " _

Grace In Woman.
The first and greatest inipodimont to
gi-aco is simple indolence. The _ u\vk-
wurd wonuin is the comfortable woman
every timo. She sits down in u chair in
such a way that the back ahull support
her and touch her spinal column all the
way up and down , instead of making a
little ollort to hold herself erect and
teach all those intricate , shiftless little
muscles around her body to support her.
What is the result ?
She hollows her cheat , throws her
abdomen out , ten chances out of a dozen
crossns her knees with her too in the air
for some one to fall over , or else sprawls
her feet apart in easy nonchalance , says
a writer in the Boston Gloho. Long
practice of this attitudn allows the
muscles to relax about the \vuibt , settles
down fold on fold , and presently that
woman realizes that she cannot button
her own shoos as she usud to , or jvoar
the dress she were when she was mar
ried. The modern rocking-chair , with
its luxurious cushions , lias made more
prominent abdomens and curving spines
than any other agent of destruction to
womanly grace. The old Now England
housewives and spinsters , sitting erect
in their straight-bucked , split-bottomod
chairs , never had to woiry ever an
exuberance of adipose abdominal tissue.
The awkward woman establishes her
self in a street car as lax.ily as if ar
ranging her attitude for an afternoon
siesta. What is the result ? In the
first place she shuts herself up like a
jack-knife to the sloping seat , puts her
foot , exactly where they are sure to ho
stepped on , allows her umbrella to slide
down where some one will trip ever it ,
bangs her bonnet and back huh-
against the window at every jolt , and
when she roaches her destination
arises only by an cITort , and a little nee-
saw motion , repeated moro or loss
times according to her weight , to getup
up her momentum.
There is no attitude at which a
woman is more graceful than a devo
tional one. Indeed ono old cynic has
said women ought to do aU the prayinc
in the world , since the kneeling posi
tion is so beautifully adapted to the
lines of their slender llguros. But BOO
the awkward woman at her prayers.
Slowly the muscles relax , and she
&lnks lower and lownr 'down in a
little huddled heap , bohhing hot
head about for a comfortable place on
the odtro of the pew In front of her , all
HO la/.ily that one wonders if her
prayers are earnest enough to bo nn-
Bworod. The mischief of all this is less
in the ridiculous picture she presents
than in the pernicious effect upon both
To sit well may bo qulto as great an
art as to write iv poem , and to accom
plish either requires effect. The pretty
pose of tho.hotul , the erectness ot the
trunk , and the graceful disposition of
the lower limbs are clearly emphasized
in a typo of woman with which habitues
of the opera are familiar. Now , this
particular graceful , alert , blrdllko pose
which , oven in repose suggests some-
tiling of action and energy , is only nt-
tainablo by strengthening the muscles
about the waist and hips. There are
various exorcises for muscular develop
ment which , of cqurso , the average wo
man , who , even with no house to keeper
or children to roar , is always more hur
ried and busy than the prime minister
of u nation , never has a moment to
practice ; but the best and most olToct-
uul of them all she can attend to with n
little thought on her way to the mati
nee , In the mldat of n inuslcalo , or the
rush of a sample expedition , and that is
to hold her belly perfectly erect
for halt an Iiour'l6aeli ' ilay , touch
ing neither chair , carriage nor
cnr-soat back , an.fl'slttliif , ' , ' well toward
the edge of the sent , with the right foot
slightly in aJvah'cti of the loft , ready to
rlso auickly without help from the
hands at an emergency. After u time
prolong the lutU-hour to n whole hour ,
two , three hours , and llnally , so elastic ,
sinewy and indApjidont will those lazy
muscles become that she will ccaso to
care for M > inartftipports and head rests
like a pscudo lliyalUl. This strength
and elasticity will help her in walking
as well wlion once ' more the indolent
woman la the eluifisy , ungraceful llguro.
Dignity and grace of carriage depend
upon simple things , yet a graceful walk
Is ono of the rare charms among Amor-
lean womon. Some ono has given n
pretty formula for walking correctly as
follows : Fancy a slender cord about
your chest , just beneath the arm , nnd
ends of which an angel hears aloft , flut
tering just above your head , ana walk
so gently and smoothly and erectly that
the frail cord shall remain taunt , yet
not bo permitted to break. Remember ,
too , to hold yourself llrmly at the waist ;
stop lightly on the ball rather
than the heel of the foot ; do not bend
the uncos except very , very slightly In
taking a stop , and keep the toes
in a straight line rather than turned
outward. There Is a great deal said
and written about the bad olTcct of
shoes , but after all , the modern shoe is
a very comfortable and well-cut alTalr ,
nnd infinitely better adapted for walkIng -
Ing with a heel that omphasi/.os the
arch of the instep than the Hat-bottomed
schooners advocated by reformers tlint
lot your foot down into the mud and
would lit a Ohorokco Indian bettor than
the New York woman.
The awkward woman lota her knees
bond a great deal because they are In
clined to , lets her body sway and slop
and turnher head bob and Blmko.plants
her heel llrmly in the mud of the cross
walks , splashing it over boots and skirts
ns well , settles down into her clothes so
comfortably that her abdomen protrudes
and her bent back allows her skirts to
swoop up the dust and ashes and gar
bage on our beautiful kept pavements.
When she mounts the stairs she re
verses her position with an energy
worthy a bolter cause , and leaning for
ward falls into dor dress skirt , tears the
lace off her petticoats , trips and tugs
along with her center of grav
ity pulling fn some absurd
place whore it holds her
body down in a half-hori/.ontal
postion , and makes her carry almost
more than her own weight up. besides
cramping her lungs so that she is all
out of breath , pulling and perspiring
when she roaches the top.
The easiest ways to go up stairs is to
hold yoursoll erect , and lifting your
weight continually with the chest , stop
after stop , lightly mounting on the teen ,
make.1) ) climbing the dreadful stairs of
city houses ono of 'the ' best forms of ex
cise yet invented , hocording to a fam
ous physician , who claims that great
advantage is derived from its develop
ment of the muscle's of the heart. Com
ing down stair * the position should be
the same , and each stop made as lightly
on the toes as th'ough the stairway was
of porcelain and the supports of spun
glass. There are some muscles in the
calf of the log that ought to bear the
strain of the ascent and descent , and
will , if not imposed upon by throwing
upon them a lazy load of ilobh that the

The secret art of beauty lies not in cos

fj. The Mystery of Dimples.
Certain beautiflors delaro that even
in the adult they can produce dimples
by a semi-surgical process. This may
be , but , after all the secret spring of
the dimple is the soul , says a writer in
the Now York Morning Journal. As
the latter overflows with smiles the face
assumes a radiance that art cannot imi
tate. Blue eyes Or black sparkle as the
light rushes upward from its hidden
caves , cheeks glow and dimples appear.
For a girl , two dimples , ono at each
corner of the mouth or near those
points , arc a lavish gift. The daintiest
smile will bring thorn out well clolinod
and ravishing , a broad grin will expand
them into furrows. Therefore it is
woman's privilege to smile , if she has
dimples. This is no news to the fair
sex. A woman with dimples would not

Moreover , by smiling a woman may

cient to produce good results. The
operation is simple. First , carefully
ascertain the clToct of an ordinary
smilo. Note the expansion of the mouth.
Next place a thumb and forefinger , one
in each furrow made by the smile ; then
alternately relax and contract the smile ,

Ominous rumors have for some time

of the French pr.o/is . to the effect that
dancing is to bo idoiio away with as an
amusement unllfforthls ago of Intellec

of a day or two declares that dancing ,

leaders of the Parisian s.Uons no longer
encourage this king of amusement ut
their receptions. With the sprightll-
11089 which characterizes our con
temporary , the Figaro takes up the
cause of the girls and urges that some
loading society lady should revert to
the ouatom of the -'good old times"
and throw her drawing rooms open for
the bonolil of the L'lrlu and also for that
of the mothers of" the girls. Thoali-

Another reason for the unpopularity of
the waltz is said to bo found in the fact
that it Is above all a German dance.
Yet another objection to the waltz is ,
as the king of waltz composers , Jo-
hann Strauss of Vienna , points out that
it is impojjiblo to talk while walUing ,
and that whllo the quadrille is the tri
umph of the flirt the waitis his ( ot
her ) death. The clamor for quadrille
and minuet dancing becomes greater
as the wait/.sinks in the estimation of
dancer ; and If the p'rcsont agitation
continues , wo may before long revert
to the pretty dances at the end of the
last century , and watch the jouncsso
doroo "trip it neatly' " through the
mazes of the "square' ' ' dance. O But in
order to enjoy those most charming of
dances to the full , Wattcau costume
should bo worn at them , and the men
especially should see that , instead of
wearing black coats with Hying tails ,
and trousers reaching to the tips of
their tops , ( a costume which woulil look
moro ridiculous and inartistic than
ever in u graceful "square" dance , )
they adopt the picturesque apparel ,

801110 PuiutH of Etiquette.
In his last comedy , "Marquiso , "
Sardou maintains that a gentleman , es
corting M lady , either from table or
from church , should offer her his arm ,
and always the left arm. The reason
ho gives is , that a man should Icoop his
right arm at liberty , that if needful ho
may bo able to glvo a cull to any person
who does not make way for the lady , or
for the moro peaceable purpose of
opening a door which may bar the pas
sage. A writer in I'lntermcdiara
states this doctrine , but contends that it
ignores a distinction , delicate indeed ,
hut which ought by no moans bo disre
garded. In churches and balons there
is no danger , and a man ought not by
his gestures or attitudes to show him
self apprehensive. In a festive lrilluc-
cordingly , giving a lady one's loft arm
argues a suspicious temper , and may betaken
taken ns an Insult by a bupor-sonsitlvo
host. In treating this matter , L'ln-
tormodiarlrc mentions an old custom
now in vogue on the French stage. At
the opera a man never otters his arm or
hand to a queen or princess , but pre
sents her a doubled fist ( lo poing
formo ) .
