Into her chljd's eyes , might bo able to say ,
"I am blesse'd of God ; I have broupht a citi

might help our republic to quicken and bless
the world with our cosmopolite religion !
Rev. Anna Shaw followed with an enter
taining talk on woman's place In religion.
Woman had been the mainstay of the church i
yet no Institution had been BO Blow to accord ]
her her place as the church. That 1'aullno i
text , "Let your women keep silence In the I
church" had been used BO much that It ought j
to have been used up by this time. No '
church , from the time of Susannah Wesley ,
the mother of John and Charles Wesley , had
been bo much benefited by woman's work
as the great Methodist denomination. Miss
Shaw was as usual fun of the humorous In
her handling of her tmbject.

The meeting closed with an address from
the president , Mrs. May Wright Sewall of
Indianapolis , In the course of which she |
complimented the press and public of Omaha
as follows :
In bringing to a close the tenth annual
executive session of the National Council of
Women of the United States I may not for
bear this opportunity to express in the name
of the council the keen and grateful appre
ciation which It will always hold toward
the citizens of Omaha for the gracious
courtesies , the generous hospitality uinl the
cordial reception which has been given to
our body. It U fitting to bear public testi
mony , not only to the uniform courtesy , butte
to the justice which has characterized the
press of Omaha In It ! ) discussion of the coun
cil meetings. We thank the management of
The Omaha Bee for the space accorded in
Its columns to the proceedings of this meet
ing ; we thank It also for the use It has
made of the space which It granted ; we
thank It for sending to our Epf-slons an In
telligent and accurate reporter who hns
evidently endeavored to grasp and to report
faithfully the proceedings of our sessions.
I wish to avail myfelf of this public op
portunity to express the thanks of the coun
cil to the local section of the National Coun
cil of Jewish Women. The beautiful break
fast which was tendered by the local sertlon
out of respect to the national body of which
It Is a member to the National Council of
Women Illustrates how aflillatlon with the

The National Council of Women has also
a deep sense of what It owes to the Woman's
club of Omaha. The local advertising , this
beautiful church , with Its largo auditorium
for our public evening sessions. Its smaller
auditorium for our public morning sessions
and KB still umnller parlors for our commit
tee meetings , has relieved the council from
all anxiety and from all expense regarding
what U usually a perplexing feature oi
preparations for such conventions.
To particularize where everyone has beer
fo gracious would seem ungenerous wrre II
not forced upon us by the unexpected , con
stant , solicitous attentions of the local com
mittee. It has not been my pleasure to be
come personally acquainted with all the
members of this committee , but to Mrs.
Draper Smith , to Miss Fairbrother , to Mrs.
Ford and to Mrs. Cornish I beg to express
the high and grateful appreciation In which
the national council holds their individual
and their united service to our council work
through thcso meetings.
The hospitality which has been extended
to us has covered every phase. It has been
the hospitality which gathers us at the
board to feed and refresh our bodies , na Il

In the parlors of this church on Monday
night ; the hospitality which extends Its

fully Illustrated In the address of welcome
which opened your platform to us through
the address of Mrs. Sawyer , the president
of the Bureau of Education.
The hospitality of distinguished private
citizens has supplemented that of organl"d
committees. The Llnlnger art collection Is
a flno Illustration of the- way In which 'lie
private cl'lzen haa succeeded to the scns l
of obligation which formerly belonged only !
to those who had Inherited the right to ex
ercise the sweet privileges of patron.vje In I
community life. What the houses of 1)1
Medici did for Florence , such men as Wal-j
ters of Baltimore and I.lnlnger of Omaha defer
for their respective communities. |
Concluding , she paid a glowing trlbuto to ,
the Transuiisslssippl Exposition. She nUo
did homageto the memory of Frances U.
Willard and Mrs. Frances E. Newbury Bag-
ley , whoso deaths had occurred during tho.
The tenth annual executive session of the
council will finish today with a business
meeting at the Paxton hotel to settle ques-
tlons of finance and arrange for the next
triennial , which Is to be held next year , and
the quinquennial of the International coun
cil , which Is to bo held In London during
the summer also.

Manager Kenyon has decided to experi
ment with Sherman gravel for a flooring In
the pens and allays. Several years ago the
stockmen commenced to complain about the
plunk flooring and vitrified brick was given
a trial. At first the brick appeared to bo I i
satisfactory , but those who are In the saddle
nearly all the time assert that horses and j
cattle slip on the brick and for that reason
It Is not a success. A large pen In the west
ern part of the yards has been covered with
four Inches of Sherman gravel and this will
bo tested for some time. In case It Is satisfactory - I
factory the gravel will be used In the cattle
pens and some of the alleys. It Is not the
intention to take up the brick already laid
but If the gravel Is better than a solid
pavement It will be used as improvements

majority over his democratic opponent.
David H. Mercer , republican candidate for
congress , sprat yesterday In the city. Mr.
Mercer was shown through Swift's and

The grading for the now Cudahy born was
completed yesterday and when completed this
barn will bo the largest In the city and will
accommodate nearly 100 horses , The cost
will bo In the neighborhood of J10,000. Work
on the artesian well Is still progressing. At
the present time the hole Is down over 1,700
feet and still water In flowing quantities has
not been struck. Mr. Cudahy said ho would
keep on drilling for awhile , as the prospects
for water constantly Increased and he ex
pected to strike a ( lowing stream within the
next hundred feet.
As has been customary In the past the
second day's registration was rather slim.
While a good many registered the number
docs not by any moans show the strength
of the vote In this city. A great many
people seem to think that because they reg
istered last spring It Is not necessary to
register again this fall. Every one who
wishes to vote next month must register.
Only one more day for registration. That Is
on November 5.

The Board of Park Commissioners at Its
meeting > cstcrday afternoon considered the
question of the disposition to be made of the
lagoon after the close of the exposition.
It took no definite action , but decided
that It would wait the pleasure of the
The discussion of the question of the
Ingoon was brought about by the Introduc
tion of a resolution by i : . J. Cornish , which
provided for the filling In of n portion of It
by the exposition people before turning over
the land to the commissioners. This led to
some talk about what should be done with
1 the bridges , It being claimed that with the
small area of water these would look , ns
one cornmlsslonrr put It , like n baby with
a plug hat. Besides this. It was argued that
the dirt In the approach to the bridges
could be put to good use when U came to
There was a general sentiment among the
commissioners that as the park when com
pleted would bo only four block In area , U
would be a better plan not to have any pond
at all. In place of this It was suggested
that there might bo two fountains , one at
either nd of the present lagoon.
Some of the members of the board were
of the opinion that the public would feel
that the sentimental Interest attached to
the lagoon should liwuiro Its permanency In
gome form a > a reminder of the glories of
the White City. For this reason U was
suggested that the work progress slowly
eo that such as might liino this desire to
retain a puddle to brine back to their
memories the once brilliantly Illuminated
waterway would have ample time to prepanj
themselves for the shock.
The final decision In regard to the matter
wns to allow the exposition management to
proceed with the work of tearing down the
buildings and let the question of what to do
with the lagoon bo decided when they make
positive request on the subject.
The commissioners heard the reading of
bills from Charles W. Holler and Silas
Cobb for Hcrvlccs , and referred them bade
to the council. They alpo rented thu land
under their control , known as Fontanello
park , to the present tenant for the ensuing
year for ? 200.
