or the morning sermon of Rev. Thomas
iAnderson at Calvary Baptist church 8unday

three of Paul's first letter to the Phllllplans
furnished the text In these four words:
"All things are yours." Rev. Mr. Anderson
paid In part;
"This Is a rich text, one of the mountain
texts of the bible. It la inexhaustible in

It presents and It suggeata an oceanic
theme, defying all attempts of the preacher
to confine it to any one phase.
"The very poorest Christian la now a

"Faith la a much almpler matter than

At the First Presbyterian church Sun

which tells the story of the prodigal son's
"Jesus cited this parable," said the pas
tor, "to appease some of his apostles, who
had murmured because he received sinners
and ate with them. The tendency Is to
show how natural It Is for a father to re
joice because of the return of a son sup
posed to be lost. Love endures forever,
and follow. Its object to the end of the
chapter. Hope may fall, faith may fall, but

ABOUT MRS. HOUGHTON'S COW
o Mach Lea-al Proceeding Over
Bovine that She ie Name
Judge Vlnsonhaler of the county court la
about to be called upon to decide who owns
the cow that Mra. Emma D. Houghton of
2413 Capitol avenue had before John W.
Cooper and Justice of the Peace Foster at
To those unfamiliar with the cow's his
tory there Is nothing extraordinary about
her. Her waist measure Is about the same
as other cows', her manicuring Is nothing
to boast of and It has even been suspected
thst she Is knock-kneed. But her name Is
"Litigation" and ahe has been responsible
for all kinds of legal papers being served
within the last few weeks.
The trouble, it Is said, atarted when Mrs.
Houghton stumbled over a brace at the
carnival grounds during the last Ak-Sar-Ben
festivities. Foster and Cooper, who
were boarding at her home, undertook to
get damages for her by mean, of the usual
legal negotiations with the city. The city
went to the Ak-Sar-Ben managers. And
ths Ak-8ar-Ben managers went straight to
Mrs. Houghton. But of this latter fact, the
attorneys say they were not made cognis
ant. They grew suspicious only when some
new furniture arrived at ths Houghton
home Then they, too, went to their land
lady. They wished to know If the matter
had been compromised without their sanc
tion and Mrs. Houghton told them that ahe
had $300 caah, as an evidence of the ac
curacy of their gueaa. They suggested that
attorneys do not negotiate for nothing, and
she tuggeeted that the - weather was as
profitable a toplo of conversation, as they
could take up at that particular time. '
The men of law felt , piqued, went into
court and when she confessed judgment In
the sum of $125, they sent a constable clear
out to the county line to waylay a man who
was bringing Mrs. Houghton's cow home
from a visit with relatives In Washington
county. The coaatable attached the cow
for the amount of the fees alleged to be
due Foster and Cooper. But Mrs. Houghton
haa a daughter, Essie, who knows a thing
or two or three herself, and she claimed
the cow as her own, and succeeded In re
plevying It The meek-eyed dairy, ad
Junct is back In Washington county again
and the title to her Is what Judge Vlnson
haler !a to decide.
But that la net the end of the litigation
Foster end Cooper hsve alao Instituted
suit against Walter Jardlne, aa a member
of the Ak-Sar-Ben board, alleging that he
owes them damages in the sum of $:
for inducing Mrs. Houghton to break her
nominal contract wtth them. This also Is
to come before the county Judge for set

AFFAIRS AT SOUTH OMAHA
Political Interest Oeoters In the Republican
SHORT SKETCHES OF THE CANDIDATES
Blda for Boada to Be Received at Ta
alcht'a Coaaell Meeting Soeeeeaor
ta Rav. Wheeler aa tha
Most of the candidates nominated by the
republican convention Saturday are too
well known to need any Introduction to the
general public. However, a ahort sketch
msy be Interesting to those who have lived
ia South Omaha only a short time.
Frank Koutsky, the candidate for mayor,
was born on a farm about thirty-five milee
west of this city, and It Is asserted that
he haa never been out of the state. When
Ed Johnston was mayor Mr. Koutsky served
a term In the city council. Ho wss en
gaged In the hardware bualneaa until two
years ago, when he was selected city treas
urer. Mr. Koutsky has been a resident of
the Msglc City since 1887.
Edward L. Howe, candidate for city treas
urer, haa been until recently employed In
a responsible position with the Hammond
Packing company, but for several months
he haa devoted almost his entire time to
looking after his private affairs.
Joseph F. McCaffrey, nominated for city
clerk, haa been a realdent of the city for
about a year. He Is engaged In business
on Twenty-fourth street. Since coming to
South Omaha Mr. McCaffrey has taken
quite an Intereat In local politics.
A. H. Murdock, candidate for city attor
ney. Is an old-timer and really needs no
Introduction to the public. Besides being
an able attorney, Mr. Murdock boasts that,
with possibly one exception, he Is the home
liest man In the city. He haa always been
prominent In politics.
Among the councllmen nominated, Wesley
P. Adklns of the First ward has been In
the livery business here for years. His
advent Into office was made two yeras ago,
when he waa elected to the city council
by a large vote. During hla term Mr. Ad
klns has served as president of the council
and has presided at most of the meetings.

An adjourned meeting of the city council
Is billed for tonight, when It Is expected
that blda for the renewal of $140,000 tn
bonds will be received. These bonds, which
the city expects to renew at this time, do
not mature until 1916. The ordinance au
thorizing the Isaue provides for interest
at the rate of S per cent, the same the
bonds are now drawing. Johnston, who has
so far engineered the deal, aaya the city
can now aecure a premium of about 12,000
by a renewal and, therefore, he favors the
proposition. The sum of money, If avail
able now, Mf. Johnston asserts, would as
sist greatly in paying current obligations
and would tend to reduce the overlap wnicn
la Inevitable. From the number of Inquiries
made about these bonds tt is predicted that
the bidding will be lively.

MAY CELEBRATE ANNIVERSARY
Project ta Mark tha Twenty. Fifth
Year at Pahlle Library's
At the laat meeting of the library board
the queatloa was brought up of a celebration
to mark the twenty-fifth annlreraary of the
founding of the Omaha Public library as a
city Institution. For some yesrs previous
to 1877 a subscription library had been
maintained In the city by a private associa
tion, and the state legislature that year
passed a law enabling the city to take the
management of the affair under municipal
control. Thla wss done In August of thst
The matter went no further than a sug
gestion at the last meeting, but It waa
agreed that the occasion should be used
to bring the people Into closer touch with
the institution and that a reception might
be held at the building during one or two
days, when visitors would be shown through
the library and be made acquainted with Its
work and treasures.
The Nebraska State Library association
ill hold Its next meeting In Omaha, and
a member of the board ssld that the two
events could probably be united, tbe cele
bration of the quarter-centenary being
made coincident with the meeting of the
atate organisation. This could easily be
done, as during the months of June, July
and August occur anniversaries of three
steps taken In the organization of the
library as a public Institution, anyone of
which could be observed. In this case all
llntereeted in library work In the states
of Nebraska and Iowa would be invited anil
the occasion would take on more than local
