tended the convention held at Minneapolis
last fall, but those who know whereof they
speak ear there will lie no comparison be
tween the two gatherings so far as numbers
Is concerned. The principal reasons why
Omaha expects to entertain so many mors
than Minneapolis are these: First, Omaha
! more centrally located la a geographical
sens; second, Omaha Is located nearer the
eenter of Christian church pcpUatlon;
third, Omaha has better railroad facilities
and will -gar BetteVralei and advertise them
better; fourth, there will be no Pan-American

lag of th Pan-American exposition.
Rev. Sumner T. Martin, pastor of the

Tha Elks- fair go 'merrily on." Hun
dreds of fun-seekers fought their way
through tha crowds again last night, and
th fact that, th carnival baa been running
several days does not seem to ftav had aa
appreciable effect on tha purse af th
people, for the' visitors war' aa Willing
spenders aa If it were th first night.
There are many pitfalls for the unwary
at tha fair, and lust aa many for tha wary.
One never knows when or from which side
ha will ba attacked, but most of the habit
ues have learned that when one accosted
tha best thing to do la to give up quietly
at once and go along unresistingly ta th
next place. It la not exclusively muscular
force that is exerted. Beset by a cohort of
brawny policemen In front, th victim turns
only to find himself threatened from 'the
rear by th' equally irresistible power
lurking In soft feminine eyes. v
The big wheel of fortune - whirred and
flapped Inceesantly last Bight ' and ' many
trophies were dispensed by th oracle at
th fountain head. Th elaborate elk's
head hatpin, coveted by so many, finally
struck tha cog and went to Mies Eleanor
Taggart of North Platte, Neb.
It wae "visiting night." and a great many
people' from out of th city were present.
The largest delegation was from th lodge
at Lincoln, headed by Edward Straight. It
was with these newcomers,' who were
novices at all the games-of buy, that the
Elks, had tha moat fun.

"One of tb object of the leseie was to
check and prevent large and wasteful ex
travagances n the management and ad
ministration of our city schools. Another
object of, the league was to prevent the
construction of a high school building at
a very large cost and charge upon tha tax
payers, at a time' when no funds were
available for such purpose, and also at a
time when under the law no expenditures
for such a purpose could be made on ac
count of lack of public funds available
therefor. While the league recognise tha
necessity of a high school building, we
also believe that a general lack of con
fidence In the preeent school board war
rants a delay until a time whea full con
fidence in a careful Board of Education
"That thla lack of confidence la th
present Board of Education was not with
out foundation, we can attention to the
recent indictment of sevea members of the
board for malfeasance' In office, and to a
few significant facts taken from tb records
of th board.
' "In tha seventeen months from May 1,
1800, to October 1. 1901, the Board of Educa
tion paid to L. A. Davis, architect, tha sum
of $3,125, $1,000 of which waa for plans of
a high school building, which has never
been started and which under the law
could' not be begun for lack: of funds.
"During th aama period of time tha board
paid for plumbing tha following amounts to
tha following named persons: To George
Parks, 4,6T.8; to John Paika, fl,S57.(0;
to George L. Dare, 4.0M.7i, making a total
expenditure for plumbing during th time
when but one new building waa erected of
$10,091.80. ' v
"During tha past year and In face of the
fact that no money was on hand with which
to build a high school the board paid for a
high school site $18,000. This sits consists
of one-ha It block of property entirely out
side tha business district ' of tha city. '
"During th above seventeen' months the
board paid to M. . Donovan, a painter and
paper hanger, .tha aum of $1,763.68.
"Tha . board awarded to George' Parks a
contract tor the beating plant In tha Corrl-
gan achool, a four-room, bulldlag, for $8,04
when at tha same time a bid waa In the
hand of tha secretary of tha board propoe
Ing to do the same work for $2,000.
"From October, 1900, to April. 1901. th
board purchased 1,020 tons cf eosl, an sv
a rage of thirteen tons to each achool room
In tba city. Tha firm that had this ooal
contract was Indicted by the recent grand
Jury for obtaining money under false pro-
"From Msy 1, 1901. to October 1, 190$, the
board paid for lumber over $2,000, no part
of which wsa used In new buildings. The
price paid for finishing lumber wss ss high
aa $90 per thousand, while tha market price
at the time for th same grade of lumber
waa $40. For sidewalk lumber $82 per thou
sand waa paid, th market for the aame
grade at tha time was $20. Tba board paid
for common lath $6 per thousand, tha high
sst prevailing prica "for which waa $4.80. '
"Sine May 1. 1901, th board baa re
celved from all sources a sum of $133,'

THE CHILDREN ENJOY
Life out of door and out of the games which they play and the enjoy
ment which they receive and the efforta which they make, cornea the
greater part of that healthful development which ia ao essential to their
happineaa when grown. When a laxative ia needed the remedy which ia
given to them to cleanse and aweeten and atrengthea the internal organa
on which it acta, ahould be anch aa phyaiciana would eanctkm, because ita
component parte are known to be wholesome and the remedy itself free from
every objectionable quality. The one remedy which phyaiciana and parents,
well-informed, approve and recommend and which the tittle onea enjoy,
because of ita pleaaant flavor, ita gentle action and ita beneficial effects, Is
Syrup of Figa and for the aa'me reason it ia the only laxative which ahould
be used by father and mothera. -
Syrup of Figa ia the only remedy which acts gently, pleasantly and
naturally without griping, irritating, or nauaeating and which cleanaeathe
system effectually, without producing that conatlpated habit which results
from the use of the old-time cathartlca and modern iraltattoaa, and against
which the children ahould be ao carefully guarded. If you would hare them
grow to manhood and womanhood, atrong, healthy and happy, do not give
them medicines, when medicines are not needed, and when nature needs
assistance in the way of a laxative, give them only the eiaaple, pleasant and
gentle Syrup of Figa.
Ita quality ia due not only to the excellence of the combination of the
laxative principlea of plant with pleaaant aromatic ayrupa and juicea, but
also to our original method of manufacture and aa you value the health of
the little onea, do not accept any of the substitutes which unscrupulous deal
ers sometimes offer to increase their profits. The genuine article may be
bought anywhere of all reliable drnggiata at fifty ceats per bottle. Pleaae

Tho members of St. Mary's Avenue Con
gregational church met la the parlor of
that church last night, A. H. Wateyhouss
presided and1 matters ol nuance and other
condition of tha church and plans tor tha
future were discussed at length.
Finance was first takaa up. A report
waa read by the tresaurer. While It was
not considered a. favorable one, speaking
from the present conditions, it wss agreed
that with a unity of purpose the matter
would soon be cleared up.
There-waa a-general expression- that ths
church should be at oooe provided with a
permanent pastor, and the matter af recom
mendation was left to a committee of nine
teen' .mad up of -the 'advisory beard and
seven member choaea from tha coogregs-i
tlon and society. ' Thla committee I ex
pected to make Its recommendatleaa la the
near future. A number of application have
been received, but ao definite action his
beea taken. . It wee, agreed that U la usees.
sary to the future welfare of th church
thst a man of experience and ability bt
secured, and to that end a liberal salary
should be provided.
Dr. Manna, who ocoupled th pulpit Isst
Sunday, will preach next Sunday and will
probably do most ot the supplying until a
permanent pastor Is' called. I, waa stated
during the evening that Dr. S. Wrlaht
Butler, former pastor of tha church, had
offered his services as supply for two or
three Sundays. He will probably preach
during tbe early part of March. It Is stated
positively, however,''' that he ta in na way
a candidate, be being permanently located
