mora gracefully to decorative offices than
when they lend their beauty to children.
Testerday more than half the Protestant
church iia of the city were bower, of blos

poke and iac and had lermom preached
to them, diploma, handed to them and an
them, sung In their especial honor. In
some churches the homag-e to the children
waa paid In the morning at other. In the
evening, and In certain edifices at both
ervloes. The scent of the June roses per
meated the temples, tiny canaries sung
in gilded cages while' the little girls In
their faultless toilettes and the little boys
In shirt walnt, and unruly hair, lisped brief
verse, which concerned chiefly the flower,,
the pure air and the bird, and the Savior.
It mattered little, really, what the children
aid or sang. The artlessness of their
presence and their own oft-written Irresist
ible charm won all heart, and refreshed,
mayhap, some tired hearts, rather unused
to loving by dint of long abstinence.
Graduation (or Sunday School,.
Children's day has grown to be recog
nised In nearly every Protestant church In
the country. It' serve, as a graduation to
the Sunday school classes and is the point
of demarkatlon between the "primary"
and the "Intermediate" and the "bible
classes." Diplomas tied with pale blue rib
bon are presented to the claases by the pas
tor, and well bound copies of the Book to
the .youth on the threshold of understand
ing. The exercise, vary, of course, accord
ing to the whims and tastes of pastors and
Sunday school superintendents, and there
is no fixed time for the day, but It is al
ways In the leafy summer, when there is
plenty of green and flowers and feathered
songsters. As a rule the preachers do not
attempt anything very weighty In sermons,
dwelling upon simplicity and the sublime
contentment and calmness of chlldhod.
At First CongrtgatloBaL
At the First Congregational church yes
terday morning the entire morning service
was given over to the children. Beginning
with . the primary department the classes
carried .out a long program. Interrupted
only by the presentation of diplomas by
Rev. Herring. The latter had no time to
make a sermon, as It was noon when the
girls and boys had finished. The congrega
tion Joined In the hymns and the pastor
addressed the classes solloltlously when he
gave them the bible,. The special music
at thla church In the evening was also in
clined toward the children and the topic
of the sermon waa "Angels."
In the First Baptist, Seward Street Meth
odist and Calvary Baptist churches the
morning service hours were likewise given
up to the children. At the First BaptlBt
the exercises were similar, to those at the
First Congregational, while at the Beward
Street church great attention had been paid
to the adornment, which waa exceptionally
lovely and in keeping with the spirit of the
Cantata at Calvary Baptist.
During the special service in Calvary
Baptist church the children under the di
rection of Mrs. O. W. Noble rendered "The
XlRf't. Garden." The choir followed with a
eair cantata, "The Singing of Birds,"
by Q. W. Warren, wltn solos by Miss Roto
,rts and Mrs. Nobla. In the evening spe
cial music was given also.
A children's day sermon waa preached In
Knox Presbyterian church In the morning
and the exercises by the school were in the
evening. Westminster Presbyterian church
had It, special services In the morning and
evening. Trinity Methodist Episcopal
church had It, observance In the evening
and the Interior of the edifice waa fragrant
with roses. Mis Arnold sang several times
and there were songs and recitations by
the children- The pastor gave an appro
priate sermon In the morning at Castellar
Street Presbyterian church and the special
program was carried out In the afternoon,
the children of the Sunday school uniting
with those of its two missions, Park For
est ehael and Ontario Street chapel. The
venlng sermon waa an object lesson to old
Clifton Bill and St. Mary's.
At the Clifton Hill Presbyterian the ser
mon preached In Jlhe morning was suited
to children and In the evening the Sunday
school rendered the cantata, "The nights
of the New Crusade." Re. Tost preached
an Illustrated sermon adapted to children
at St. Mary's Avenue Congregational In
the morning and administered the rite of
baptism. Children's day services were sub
stituted for the ordinary services at Wal
nut HU1 Methodist and In other churches
of the Cty the occasion was recognised In
a similar manner.

place Idea that life In this world Is but a
series of conflicts, from which no one can
escape. Something Is always In conflict
with resistance. When resistance ceases,
conflict will reus. Regardless of any effort
that we may put forth, every definite act
Is In conflict with a definite resistance- We
could not walk but for the resistance of
the ground upon which we tread. We
ennnot trend the air or water, for there la
no definite resistance there that can over
come our human mechanism. There Is no
excrptlon to the law. Progress is main
tained by the resistance It meets. The
greater the resistance the great heights
we attain. No one can go forward without
being opposed. We should not find fault
with this condition, but rather be thankful
"Our enemies do ns more good than our
Inactive friends. We are better with ene
mies than without them. The essential
and chief quality of human character la
courage. It Is the capital of all power
within us. It Is the heart of every virtue,
like blood to the physical heart. It bends
our energies Into strength. I do not mean
brute courage, but moral courage. It re
quires as much courage to brave a bed of
sickness as a field of battle.
"A bad man 'cannot be a brave man. He
may be possessed of brute courage, but
he will drop his flag to temptation and sin.
He la a slave to vlclousness. Who ever
heard of a man that was a slave to truth,
goodness or temperance? We are con
stantly surrounded by protecting forces
from God's world. We have only to know
the omnipotence of . God and the tender
ness of His compassion. Would that our
spiritual eyes were more opened to the
consciousness of Divine protection. God
sends us trials that we may, aa thousands
before us, rise superior to those trials.
Not even death can master him who says,
'Be of good courage.' To him death Is
nothing more than a shadow. It Is the
end of sin, of sickness and sorrow and the
dawn of eternal bliss."

of Different Pats of the
Frank J. Wescctt of Salt Lake City, pri
vate secretary to United States Senator
Kern of that state, Is an Omaha visitor,
enrouto to the tast. Mr. Wescott says:
"Salt Lake City has a great future In Im
mediate prospect. We are expecting much
from the new San Pedro, Los Angeles &
Salt Lake railway, being rapidly built by
Senator Clark of Montana, and also of the
Moffatt railway, being built from Denver to
Salt Lake City. Then the United States
government Is spending an immense sum
In the rebuilding and improvements at Fort
Douglas, which will be one of the finest
military posts in the country when com
pleted. The greater interest is, however,
centered Just now In the San Pedro, Los
Angeles & Salt Lake railway. There seems
to be abundant assurances that the road will
be completed and trains running over It by
January, 1904. Kllpatrlck Bros. & Collins of
Nebraska are now In Bait Lake, City and
will doubtless figure prominently In the
further construction of the road, which
will he known as the Salt Lake Route."
A. H. McGlaughlln of the vicinity of
Guernsey, Wyo., was in the city last even
ing. He said in reference to affairs out in
the Laramie hills: "Guernsey Is rapidly
developing into one of the greatest copper
mining districts of the west. The town is
the present terminus of the Burlington and
the copper mines near there are of Incal
culable richness. They have long since
been acquired by) the Colorado Fuel and
Iron company, and the ore Is shipped from
there direct to the company'! bit smelting
works at Pueblo, Colo, That section, too,
Is coming to be on of the great horse
raising regions of th, west, Boms of the
finest animals In th country are ranged on
the headwaters of Horseahoe and Laramie
rivers. They always bring the best prices
In the markets, and few of them go under
MO pounds weight, while it is not an un
common thing to see range horsea there
that will weigh 1,200 and 1,300."
J. L. Bicker, an alfalfa farmer of the Re
publican valley, near Superior, In speaking
of the outlook up the Republican valley for
the coming season, said: "We were not
seriously handicapped by the floods up
there this spring. Some fields, true, were
washed out, but they are recuperating from
volunteer growth and the usual crops of
alfalfa may be expected this year. Many
farmers have already cut their first crop
and are arranging to nt the second in a
few weeks. Some corn will have to be re
planted, but as a rule the cornfields were
not seriously damaged."
E. D. TIHotson of Tellurlde, Colo., Is In
the city on his way to Kansas City on min
ing business. "We are looking for a big
year in the mining Industries of western
Colorado this year." he said. "While
there has been considerable snow in the
mountains during the last winter we have
been troubled very little with snowsllde, or
the usual disasters attending the heavy
snowfalls. There has been but little trouble
with the miners' unions as compared with
former years. The mine owners and super
intendents have come together on an amic
able basts, and the prospects for a big out
put of gold In the Tellurlde district Is bet
ter than for several vears."

LODGES REMEMBER THE DEAD

Hold Memorial S rricts.
PYTWANS' SERVICES AT MYRTLE HALL
Workmen Gather at Hanson. Park
to Honor th Dead of Their Or
der, with Principal Addreae
by Congressman Borkett.
Members of Knights of Pythias lodges
united at Myrtle hall yesterday afternoon
to do honor to the dead. Dr. L. A. Mer
rlam delivered the memorial address and
these officers of the lodges took part In
the exercises: Judge 81abaugh, chancellor
commander, presiding; Thomas C. Darrlng
ton, vice chancellor; John Bexten, prelate;
J. W. Malone, master of the work; John
Fyfe, keeper of records and seals; William
C. Matthews, master of finance; J. A. Dal
sell, master of ceremonies; U. B. Wlthrow,
Inner guard, and Henry Knodel, outer
guard. Music was furnished by a quartet
composed of Miss Sylvia Grace Cady, Miss
Gertrude MeCuIlogh. W. E. Oratton,
Charles Schwager, with Mrs. Oscar Harte,
accompanist. During the morning com
mittees from the various lodges visited the
cemeteries wherein were Pythian dead and
decorated the graves with flowers.
Dr. Merrlam In his address paid tribute
to the dead and to the living who re
member the dead. "The laws of nature are
the laws of God," he said, "and modern
science la dally reaching out to discover
these hidden laws of the universe for the
advancement of mankind. We began our
existence in accordance with chemical,
physical and physiological law, and during
every moment' of our development these
external laws of nature are operative.
"In the enfoldment of the mind and
soul, conditions mould, make, fashion and
determine for us what we are and shall
be. Fraternal societies, .all k forms of gov
ernment and of society, are the natural
exponent of existing conditions and as such
are regulated by natural law."
Proof of the 'Natural Law.
Dr. Merrlam said that everywhere waa
there proof of natural law. "Search the
records of the historic periods during the
last few thousand years and read of the
birth, development, maturity, decline and
death of nations, societies and languages,
religion and individuals, and when properly
studied, they are found to have been and
are today replete with natural law every
where. So we observe that In all things
In nature there comes a time when from
accident, disease or eld' age, all people and
all things must pass 'away."
In concluding. Dr. Merrlam said: "There
should be no fear of death. The childish
and erroneous notions of an ignorant and
barbarous age should be laid ailde and the
larger, nobler faith in nature and all that
Is and la to be should be entertained.
Without our volition we find ourselves in
this world of sorrow and gladness. Ere long
we shall disappear and again mingle with
the dust. Where shall we go? The only
answer is the echo of our walling cry.
And yet, Hope, the child of friendship and
of love beyond the mists that -blinded us
here, discerns the dawn1 6f another life."
Services of the t'alted Workmen.
"Thus we bring these flowers in honor of
the order's dead." With these words mem
bers of the Ancient Order of United Work
men placed roses and ferna on the em
blems of the lodge In the bandstand at
Hanscom park yesterday afternoon, the oc
casion being floral day, . which comes on
the second Sunday of each June, and is

AT THE PLAYHOUSES
Ferris Block Company at the Hoyd.
Jules Verne's well known story, "Michael
BtrognfT," done over Into a thriller, Is the
bill for the nrst half of the week by the
Ferris Bummer Stock company at the Boyd
this week. It was given Its first presenta
tion last night to a crowd in no wise di
minished by the coming of warm weather.
As a scenic production the piece Is rather
the heaviest yet olTered by this organisa
tion, but It was put on with all acces
sories and went without apparent hitch or
friction. It Is decidedly long, yet was
given In Its entirety. It abounds In cli
maxes, and these were all worked up to
the correct pitch, so that the audience had
what Is by all odds the best set of thrills
furnished at a Sunday night performance
In a long time In Omaha. Mr. Slddons Is
at his best In a part like that of the de
voted courier to the ciar, and had to Bp-
pear before the curtain again and again
to satisfy his friends In the audience. Miss
Pavey has a more heroic part as Marfa
Btrogoff, the Amazonian mother of Michael.
than those In which she has been accus
tomed to appear, but she shows genuine
ability in her characterisation of the part.
Mls Davis Is cast for Nadea, and show,
to much better advantage In the role than
any she has appeared In for some time.
Cecil Owen, the new "heavy," Joined the
company yesterday and appeared In the
role of Ivan Ogareff. He Is tall and of
good presence, with a deep, resonant Voice,
and carries himself with an easy grace,
and made a most excellent Impression. The
other characters that make up the long
cast were acceptably taken by different
members of the company, and the tragic
and humorous sides of the piece were well
"Michael Btrogoff" will be the bill until
after Wednesday. On Thursday night "The
Man from Mexico" will be put on with Mr.
Ferris as Mr. Fltxhew.

Because of a defect in the automatic
knife that frees the parachute from the
balloon, one of the two aeronauts, Miss
Daisy Broadwlck, who are advertised to
make dally balloon races at Courtland
Beach, had a thrilling time in midair yes
terday. She and T. A. Cummlngs made
the start from the park all right At 800
feet the two balloons collided, nearly- Jar.
rlngf the two from their holds, and it Li
supposed at this time that Miss Broad

mlngs' came down without accident, but
the woman's ascended to a great height,
only descending when the hot air became
cooled. The crowd watching the aeronaut
were apprehensive that she would descend
Into the river, as the balloon was drifting
that way. The balloon came down with a
rush fifty feet from the river bank. Miss
Broadwlck was not Injured.
It Is estimated -by . both the street car
officials and the park managers that nearly
18.000 people visited the two resorts during
yesterday afternoon and night. The flve
mlnute service by the Sherman avenue
line handled the beach crowds very nicely.

family Influences brought to bear upon her.
I have tried not to do this, but of no avail.

Chamberlain's Stomach and Liver
Tablets Better Than Pills.
The question has been asked. In what way
are Chamberlain's Stomach and Liver
Tablets superior to pills? Our answer Is
They are easier and more pleasant to
take, more gentle and mild In their action
and-more reliable, aa they can always be
depended upon. Then they cleanse and In
vigorate the stomach and leave the bowels
tn a natural condition, whlla pills are more
harsh In effect and their use Is often fol
lowed by constipation.
