"Wmie never had given to her a greater
"work than when God gave br ( the keep

but woman la the center and hold! the key
to the secret of e deceit or failure," said
Rev. Edward Hart Jenka In hia eermoa on
lha "Carea and Dutle of Woman," at the
Firat Presbyterian church, Sunday morning.
Rev. Jenka based bis remark! on the
Uvea of Martha and Mary ai told la Hie
tenth chapter of Luke, on Martha's devo
tion to home dutlea and Mary'a worship of
"While Martha and Mary were women of
a high type and both were full of grace.

this conereeatlnn who It was thav thou ah t
tnost of, they would say Martha, because
her time waa occupied In attending te the
duties of the home.
"We should know that woman, la not In
ferior. She dsea not enter the borne to
work, but men and women are linked to
gether In the home for a higher purpose.
If the home was to be made by one who
could measure virtue by her ability to
work, wo would marry washerwomen and
cooks, but we demand other qualities than
ability to brew and. spin, for home la the
aarat aacred apot on earth and In It we see
ur ideals. Women are our bright a tig Is
that stand In our pathway keeping ua from
evil and when we leave the home we leave
our bearta there. The cares of the women
in the hjme are many and ber responsibili
ties heavy, but these carea fall Into In
significance when compared to'the sweeter
tblaga which belong to the woman's life In
She drives out equator and puta In neat
ness, she brings In elevating things and
drives out the low, and the church haa ao
more aacred duty than this. Women can
alao make home a most disagreeable place,
tut the husband la also responsible for
this. He comes home with a load of
trouble, tell ol .his failures In business or
politics, and of things that have gone erong;
the wife tella of the wrong doings of the
children, the neighborhood scandal; the
loada of both are laid on the table and
both have a double load to carry. To make
the Idea! home lean should be more sym
pathetic, take more Interest In the mak
ing of a home, and bring strength and love
Into it. A sympathy can exist between
husband and wire without making tbe loads
of care double.
"But the care of the home Is not all the
duty ef woman. She should go Into the
world and aaaoclate with men and women,
giving them ber Ideas for the betterment
of the world in bringing people closer to
God. She should tell her ideala to aoclety
and make society better."
MAS, AND WHAT'S SAID OK HIM.
Rev, Hatch Preaebes of Repwtattoa
and Character. '
Rev. Frederick A. Hatch of Plymouth
Congregational ' church, . Sunday morning,
took for his text tbe quotstlra from Genesis,
"I heard said of thee." apeaktng on the
tteme "Reputation and Character." In part
"Reputation it what la said of a man;
character ia what a man la. The reputa
tion ta often obtained by little merit and
must be 'little deserving." saya Shakes
peare. Reputation Is the ornament of a
bouse. Character la the substantial corner
stone and Underpinning.
"A good name la of value, but la the ef
fort to get a good name every man la
ppoaed by envy, pride and malice. Thrae
gllb-tongued women and one idle man will
blast the best reputation of any man In
the city. Reputation to be fair must not
be a one-aided Judgment. If one haa an
'It reputation remember there are other
aldaa before you Judge or accept judgment.
If one haa a good reputation believe that.
Goodness Is not so abundant that we can
afford to dilute It.

MI-TAKE OF TDK WIILIOI AIRES.
Rv. Herr.ua Thinks Rockefeller and
At the First Congregstlon church, Sunday
morning, the paator. Rev. Hubert C. Her
ring, preached on the subject, "Carnegie
Libraries and Rhodea Scholarships." The
teit waa: "With all tby getting, get un
derstanding." "Tbe text especially applies to this age.
with Its struggling for material wealth."
said the pastor. "We think we understand
tbe thing tbst are now going oa about us,
the history that la now being made, but
we are mistaken; we are too close to It.
Only the campaign orator knows these
things, and I'll not assume to that degree
"Among the rich men who have been de
voting their millions to the public good
mre of late there li a wonderful agreement.
Of the 168,000.000 which In the t'nited Statce
during tbe last few years haa been given to
the public, by tar the larger part haa been
uaed la endowing educational Institutions.
This shows the trend of the times. It ta
toward the production of trained men and
disciplined minds. The so-called successful
men, tbe Rockefellers, the Btanfords, the
Carneglee, have diagnosed the Ilia of the
age, and have written their prescription,
which says, 'You need education.'
"And this, in a way, is a noble object. It
bodea good for tbe future. Inatead of balld
Ing up great family estates', these men pre
fer to perpetuate their names In another
nd better way. But. after all, there Is al
most aa much to fear aa to commend In
hie course, if I were to send my sona to
one of the great universities I wonld tell
the to carefully to study the life of the
founder that they might avoid being like
Him. I regard such men as warnings, not
aa examples. When I read their artlclea In
be magaalnee on how to succeed they
make ma 111. I do not think they have eue-
ceeded.- These men hsve not touched with
elpful hands the precise problems which
Ood has laid at their door. They have not
aught the people how to live together la
unity and love. They have ssld nothing on
the subject of how to allay the discontent
of labor, or how to secure purer government
In state and city. On the contrary they
have made governmental functlona to serve
their private ends. The spirit of brother
hood la the tndiepenslble principle for
hlch we are striving, and if these Na
poleons of finance had devoted their mil
lions to Its advancement I would stand be
fore them with uncovered head and greet
them aa benegactors of their rsce. As It
Is, 1 cannot aay that they have correctly
lagnoaed our particular ailment."
DR. CO LEY I.IKES GRAFT'S METHOD
He Proposes that Christianity Accept
Only I ncendltlonal Sarrender.
A decided stand agaJnat promoting tbe
projected universal bouae of prayer in
Waahlngton waa taken by Dr. J. W. Conley
In bis Sunday morning sermon at the First
Baptist church on "Opportunities and Ad
Ife considered compromise one of tbe ad
versaries of religion and argued for tbe
flght-lt-out-along-thia-llne" spirit In
Christian conquest, saying:
"I believe the twentieth century wilt aee
tbe grandest struggle ever known In the re
ligious arona, Christianity battling against
11 the old forma, with their dark super
stitions and shrewd leaders. The conquest
will not ba easy nor abort, but It must be
made that Christ may rule over all.
"I hear much now-adaya about the
heathen being aa well off unconverted aa
converted, and hear It urged that be be let
alone. How can you reconcile aucb a posi
tion with tbe religica of the Christ T It
couldn't be done in the first daya of the
Pantheon, when it waa propoeed to 'put
Christ with ths other gods,' and it can't be
done now. We say, aa the persecuted Chris
tians aald, that Christ must rule all and be
over all, for He la everything or nothing.
"Christianity's conquest Is Just beginning.
The old religions realize this and are ar ru
ng for a death atruggle. We are fare to
face with great opposition, but let's fight It
out alang tbla line."

Tbe bowling sesson of 1902, which the
Omaha team won by such a handsome lesd
over sll competitors, is now a part of the
alley archives, and all that remains for the
bowler la to con In fond retrospection the
scores that he and his mates msde.
In tbla connection it Is germane to an
nounce that a bowling season of eighty
four games, such as the one Just ended,
will not again obtain In Omaha. Tbla la
the latest decision of the bowlers, who
have decided that one of forty-two games
la plenty long enough.
Hereafter it U planned to have two sea
sons, with to chsmplonehipe, one a fall
session, tbe other in the spring. This Is
In order that the Interest may be better
maintained. With such a long run some
of the teams fall so far behind that they
loee all chance, and ao give up hope.
M. Z. Foracutt, assistant secretary of the
Omaha Bowling league, baa completed tbe
ecore reaume of the entire aeaaon for all
teams and players. Taking first tbe teams,
their statua may be represented In two

The St. Charles and Westerns played a
four-man team through one series of three
games, the Krug Parks and Nationals played
one man short in the eame manner through
wo auch aeries. Thus their totala are re
duced somewhat in proportion.
Players on tbe Omaha team made 49 In
dividual scores for single game of 200 or
better during the season, the Clarksons 30,
Germans 30, St. Charles 38, Gate Citys 35,
Weoterna 31, Krug Parka 19 and Natlonala
15. The term contest used in the table
means a aerlee of three games, and the
blgh and low total scores given apply to
such a series.
In computing the individual averages, the
players are divided into two classes, those
who hsve rolled thirty-els games or more,
and those who have rolled less than that
number, the latter not being entitled to
participate In prises. Tbe first nineteen
names in the longer list are those on tbe
roll of honor, having an average ot BOO
pins for three games or better.

WASHINGTON, April 20. House forecast:
The early part of the coming week In the

Important general legislation will be taken
up during the latter part of the week.
Tomorrow will be devoted to District of
Columbia business, Tuesday to war claims
and Wednesday to the oleomargarine bill,
which waa amended by tbe senate. During
the remaining daya of the week It is prac
tically settled that the antl-anarcblst bill
of Chairman Hay of tbe Judiciary committee
will be considered. The measure la much
more stringent than the anarchist bill
passed by tbe senate.
Plana also are on foot for conslTJerlng

latter days of the week. This measure has
not yet been reported from tha bouae com

It is not expected that much time will be
required to get the river and harbor bill
through the senate, aa It Is generally ap
proved by senators. Senator Frye, chair
man of the committee on commerce, who
has cbsrge of the bill, today expressed the
opinion that there would be no debate on
tbe bill, and that It would pass as soon as It
could be read.
It is now understood that Senator Raw

senate committee on the Philippines, shall
lead oft tn the speechmaklng In opposition

ABOUT BIRTH STORES.
Most Wear Yoar Birth Stone to Be
To ba really lucky, says Harper's Weekly,
you must wear your birtbstone. Some peo

Tha Jewelers slways keep a large supply
of birthday stones on band and are ready
at a moment's notice to make them up in
any combination. Tba only trouble la that
among so many beautiful gemo some of tbe
months should have such unattractive
mascots assigned to tbem. Take, for ex
ample, March. What possible beauty Is
there In a bloodstone? It makes a very
respectable man's ring, but there Is hardly
a March-born belle In Christendom who
would rejoice greatly at seeing a blood-
atone on her pretty hand. Yet a verse
Who in this world of ours her eyes
In March first open shall be wise.
In days of peril firm and brave.
And wear a bloodstone to her grave.
June also Is discouraging. In other re
spects it is a very pleasant month in which
to be born. Roses are In bloom, the air is
soft and mild and the whole of naturs is
steeping Itself in sunshine; yet it haa
nothing better to offer in tbe way of a
lucky atone than an agate:
Who comee with aummer to thla earth,
Ana owes to June ner nour or birth.
With rlntr of a I ate on her band.
Can health, wealth and long life command.
But why must It be agate?
The selection for Auguat la not aucb
happier, though It holds out tbe promise of
some thlnrs which are considered very de
sirable. It also contains a warning:
Wear sardonyx, or for thee
No conjugal felicity;
'Tie said, must live unloved and lone.
The August-born without thla atone.
It seems a bit unfair that January, which
has the proud privilege of being tbe first
ot the months, should be assigned tha
stone which, among all the gema, Is
counted the least valuable. But perhaps
it is only carrying out of the text that
the flret shall be last:
By her who In this month Is born.
No gems save garnets should be worn;
They will Insure her constancy.
True friendship and fidelity.
Tbe reet of the months do better, snd
no one could poeslbly object to her stons
who waa born at any other aeaaon.
If cold December glvea you birth.
The month of enow and ice and mirth.
Place on your hand a turquolee blue:
Success will bless you, whate'er you do,
The December girl haa no fault to find
with the turquoise; it looks exceptionally
well on a white hand.
By a bordering ot brilliants February'a
stone can be made very ornamental:
The February-born shall find
Sincerity and peace of mind,
Fredom rem passion and from care,
If they the amethyat will wear.
But luckiest of all Is the April maid
To ber la the happy privilege of a aoll-
She who from April dates her yeara.
Diamonds shall wear, lest bitter tears
For vain repentance flow: thla stone,
Emblem of innocence, is known.
As a charm against tears dlamonda will
always be welcome.

Aa American Contractor Sarnrlsed
Them with Streaaoaa Work.
J. C. Stewart of Pittsburg bss startled
Englishmen engaged la tbe building trade
by getting a fair and full day's work out
of the bricklayers whom be employed on
the works of the British Weatingfaouse
compsny at Manchester.
Mr. Stewart secured the contract to erect
tbe buildings, which are thoroughly Ameri
can in design, snd took to England with
him five expert mechanics to act as fore
men. He discovered, however, as soon aa
work commenced that English bricklayers
bsd a law among themselves not to lay
more than 660 bricks a day, if working for
private parties, or 4S0 bricks If on public
worka. After a day or two at this rata he
called the men from tbelr work snd made
a speech to them, aaylng that be expected
every man employed by blm to lay 1,800
bricks In bis day ot nine hours, and added
that if they would not do that he would
send to America for bis brleklayera. The
men naturally grumbled, and said tbe task
aet was sn Impossibility, but sfter Mr.
Stewart snd bis American foremen had
taught them a few Yankee tricks, tbey un
dertook the work and performed It easily.
Then, as a reward. Mr. Stewart raised tbelr
psy 4 cents sn hour. Tbe result is that tbe
buildings were finished In a time so abort
for England that the American contractor
la the most-talked-about man In the Indus
trial world today. One newspaper grows
enthusiastic about blm In this wsy:
Mr. Stewart Is an englnee? by profession
and. Judging by the Importance and scops
of his operations, ho Is to ths constructing
engineers of America what Sir John Alrd
ia to those of Great Britain. He builds
bridges, dams, lovks, docks, hotels, manu
factories, canals sad railroads with equal
facility. He has a record for getting things
done In time, and is likely soon to stir up
our master builders and contractors as much
as be has siready ot tired up our men.
'It Is noteworthy that bis first contract
In England ths Westlngbouae works was
eo-exlatent wltb bis first visit to this coun
try. In carrying It out be has not only
mads a record unparalleled here, but has
alao given proof that tbs British workman
can do as much and sa well and in aa little
time as the American, If you pay htm well
and know how to manage him. Mr. Stewart
returns to America at tbe end of April, on
the expiration of his contract wltb tbe
Westlngbouae company, but we have prob
ably not beard tbs lsst of blm here."

cently at tha Sturtevant bouae. "I can
not boneatly aay that I ever beard any
one quoting from Omar In tbs mountains
where I have been," be said, "but I csn
truly say that I myself never bava such
wide thougbta, auch vivid and. I may aay,
pure Imaginative plcturea, anywhere as In
the wild districts where my work takea
me. And the same thing Is true of most
of the men I have met, both englneera

lately aa I have walked about thla cltv.
I bave seen many men who have all they
want of this world's goods, who bave fine
houses and servants and luxury, many who
have no need to work at all. la fact. Money
ia spent freely in the search for pleasure.
Of an evening It seems as If tbe whole town
were cut after enjoyment, care-free. But
In the midst of It I long to be back In tbe
great outdoors, out on the silence of tbe
frontier. To work bard for a living, to
sleep under tbs atars much of ths time,
to have little to spend and leea chance
to spend It, to know what an appetite
means snd to dwell always tn sight of tbs

not adopt It. Perhaps It is not an Ideal
