tlally a man for the times , and not of Id

belonged to the latter class. They wer
trimmers , ahd on every question they wer
on all sides of the fenre , thulr nclflsh-nrc
being of the extreme kind. A man for th

superiority , but ho had dignity , manhood an

In bin sermon yesterday morning Rev. t
J. Turkle of the Kountze Memorial churc
repudiated the church cuitom of expellta
a "blacksllder , " who has fallen throug
sorao temptation , and aeaerted that U
church would be all the better If men eo
women who have BO fallen , but have n
pcnted and como back to the fold , were n
celved back Into the church.
The sermon was based upon the examp ]
given by Christ' . ? attitude toward the disc
| ) lo I'cter. The preacher pointed out tht
I'ctcr at flrat did not promise well. He wa
Ickle. weak lo many characteristics , hoi
headed and at ono time optaly repudiate
and denounced Christ , "stamping- curs
In. . ? In the market place. " Yet Christ too
him back and 1'eter became ono of th
strongoH of the disciples. The concluslo
to bo reached from thin scriptural exampl
la that Christ Is not Eecktag so much I
Itecp with Him consistent Christiana , hi
Ihoso who are hot-headed and who ha\
talltn Is trying to get back these who hav
left and donour > ccd His name.
Dcsplto thla lesson to be drawn from tli
llfo of ChrUt , the preacher said that In th
present day a backslider Is goao If he fall
through BOmo temptation. He cannot t
taken back and can do no more work fc
the church , even If he has been faithful fc
twenty jcars. Ho ls beyond the pale afti
lie has committed one uln , no matter ho
sreat hfs repintance may be. The iprcacht
pointed out , however , that thli Is not cal
contrary to the teachings of Christ , but I
also working to the disadvantage of til
This latter assertion was based on th
proportion that all knowledge In nothln
move or Icsa than experience. To bring th ;
truth homo the preacher stated that , fc

Cco enucntly such a man Is more able i
counsel In the church than the slnlcea an
the conclusion results that backsliders wt
have returned to the church can bo of 1 :
calculable benefit to It.
Upon this ground Ucv. Turkle brougl
comfort to many who have fallen , slnco t
Insisted that all such would be taken bac
by Christ. Ho admitted that a man <
woman who has committed some sin fc
years Is discouraged and believes that 1
or she can never return to the church , bt
the pastor pointed to ChrlstVi dealings wit
1'etcr to remove these doubts.
At both the morning end evening scrvlci

The demand for statuary to add the flnlsf
Ing touch to the beautiful palaces on th
exposition grounds Is responsible for th
establishment In Omaha of a new Industrj
giving employment to a number of men.
Every building on the main court will h
decorated with statuary , both single figure
and groups , and the turning out of the corn
pletcd figures Involves a great amount c
work , of which the general public know
little or nothing. To do this work sculptoi
of ability have como to Omaha and are no
engaged In modeling the silent presentment
of life , actual and symbolical. .Workshop
have been established In various parts e
the city , -where each sculptor has a force
Sculptor Franz Engelsmann of Chicago ha
the contract for the statuary for the Agrl
culture building , and his shop Is a very bus
place. There are a largo number of slngl
figures and groups In the statuary deslgne
for this building and one largo pair of spar
drcls which are to bo placed over the mal
entrance. Sculptor Metier of Chicago has th
contract for the statuary on the Admlnlstra
tlon building , and has his work almost con
pletcd. ill.V. . ilJock , another Chicago scull
tor , Is making the statuary for the Machlner
and Electricity building , and Sculptor Bring
hurst of St. Louis is now working on. th
lavish decoration for the Art building.
WORKING OUT DESIONU
In preparing this statuary the first thin
Is a suggestion from the architect of th
general character of the decoration to b
employed. This Is furnished In the form e
a sketch or wash drawing. It Is more c
less definite , according to the Ideas of th
archlect. Taking this as a guide , the sculr
tor moulds In clay what he , too , calls
sketch. These small models or sketches ar
usually about a foot or less in height an
arc ! not male to any definite scale. The
are simply the expression of the Ideas of th
architect elaborated and given definite fen
by the sculptor. The sketch Is submltte
to the architect fen approval , and when thl
Is received the work on the statue prope
Is commenced. With the sketch as a media
a full-size figure Is modeled In clay. .
skeleton of sticks Is made In crude form , th
only purpose being to glVo rigidity to th
figure. A single pleco of wood two Inche
square and of the proper height furnlstu
the "backbone" for a heroic statue of ma
or woman , and a cross pleco of wood e
Iron at the shoulders furnishes a foundatlo
for the arrr.B , If they be extended. On thl
framework the clay Is moulded roughly , an
gradually worked to the proper form. I
every case the figure Is moulded In the nut !
In order to glvo the proper contour , and th
drapery Is moulded In clay after the flgur
has been approved. This work requires gres
skill and care. As the figure nears compl <
tlon the clay la scraped away or small piece
pressed on wherever necessary until th
proper result Is attained. When complete
It Is approved by the reviewing authority an
alterations may then be made whereve
After approval the clay figure Is given
liberal coating of shellac. When this 1
dried the figure Is divided Into sections b
pressing strips of tin Into the clay , and
mould. In plaster , Is taken of each of thcs
sections. A mould Is also made of eac
section In a preparation composed largely t
gluo. The- glue mould Is placed Inside th
plaster mould , which holds the glue In th
proper position. From these sectional mould
the plaster figure Is made , the process bcln
much the same as that for making star
The Interior of the glue mould Is coated wit
a mixture of hard plaster which "sets" ver
quickly , and this Is strengthened wit
plaster mixed with temp or Jute fiber , th
whclo cast being about an Inch In thlckncs *
In this way the cntlro figure Is cast an
the parts are then assembled , the Joint
"pointed up" and the figure Is complete. Th
surface Is gone over very carefully an
dressed , all little cxcrcsonces being remove
and Imperfect spots filled with plaster. Thl
process Is the same with all the figures an
requires a great deal of time.

"While people In the United States are
boasting of the greatness of their country
and Its wonderful Eelf-sufflclcncy , It would
bo well for them to consider that It I * Im
possible for nn American to call Into the
harbors of Montevideo , lluenos Ayrcs or
many other prominent South American
cities under the stars and stripes , " said
Joseph Fabcr of Buenos Ayres at one of the
local hotels. "While the Americans are
boasting Italy , Holland and oven Austria art-
carrying on the chief part of the commerce
between New York and South American
ports. To see the flag of the United Stated
In the harbor of Hlo Janeiro or Bahla Is a
moat unusual thing. Last June I returned
to Argentine Republic , on the vessel that
carried Conger , the new minster to Brazl' ,
to Hlo Janeiro. When wo came Into the
harbor at Hlo n United States flag was
hoisted on the wharf to welcome the new am
bassador. In vain the captain of 'the ' foreign
ship we were on hunted for n United States
nag to raise In response , but there was noth
ing of the sort to be had and when wo
touched the landing he hastily sent for one
and put It up at the last moment. That la
the power that the United States excrclsca
In waters where the trade belongs to It more
naturally than to any other country. All
of the coffee and other products exported to
the United States are shipped under foreign
EUROPE CONTROLS THE TRADE.
"Montevideo and Buenos Ayrcs arc cities
of marble and ore so clean that they arca
revelation to all foreigners , la the Argentine
Republic cattle and grain are the leading
products and many of the English there are
engaged in the buying and shipping of these.
The dry goods business Is chiefly under the
control of the Germans , the toy business
under the Swiss , and so each line la carried
by eomo certain people.
"Tho Argentine Republic has a population
of about 8,000,000 , which la made up of
French , English , Portuguese , Spaniards ,
Germans , Americans , snd , In fact , people of
all nationalities. The government Is more
staMo than that of any other South Ameri
can republic. Every MX years a president
Is elected , as well as members of the two
legislative 'bodies , which are called the Sen
ate and the House of Deputies. Unlike In the
United Statea , the senate la the loner of the
two bodlca. None of the other officers arc
elected , they stay In office during good be
havior. No president Is allowed to serve two
terms In succession , six years must elapse
before ho Is eligible for re-election.
"Many of the revolutions In these republics
are not aa great as they seem to outsiders ,
for there are seldom more than 3,000 sol
diers In the opposing parties , and frequently
they last only a few days.
"In the Argentine Republic -the climate la
fine. It Is much like the climate of California
with the exception that the rains come all
through the year and not In one season
alone. Buenos Ayrea Is never troubled with
fevers and has never known an epidemic of
any sort. It la the summer season In that
country now , and everything Is moro .beau
tiful than It Is possible to describe. "

"Tho project of establishing a steamship
line between Chill and Guatemala , with sub
sequent extension to Mexico and the United
States , " said Daniel R. Mcrrlam of Philadel
phia , "Is being urged. The last mall from
Valparaiso brought a copy of a iblll prepared
by the council of state for submission to the1
Chilian congress , authorizing the president
to accord the subvention of $50,000 to one or
moro steamship companies plying weekly
between Valparaiso and Ocos , Gautcmala.
SIneo then the sum has been Increased to
$85,000 , tho-vessels to continue as far as San
Francisco and stop at Mexican ports. The
motive urged by the council of state for
granting this assistance Is that the trade of
Central America presents the most favorable
conditions for Chill. It IB stated that by far
the larger proportion of the articles Imported
from foreign countries consists of the same
agricultural produces which Chill now exports
as far north as Panama , and which that
country could supply were a steamer line
established. The Importance of this trade
to the United States Is very great and cannot
readily be estimated. "
