upon the cross, a sacrifice for the ransom

No one, then, we ee has an ear to bear

eager and expectant, the longed-for call

will not only magnify a faint sound. It
may even change the nature of the sound,
that reports of It will be wldelr at
variance. Once, we are told, when Jestu
had been discoursing with unusual power
of His kingdom and of His own Impend

one of the emotional disciples .declured

taught the words spoken. Other disciples

mining a creditable report."
Empty Minds a Myth.
Mr. Mann spoke of the notion that a
tninlster has only to open his mouth and
Ood will fill it, a bequest of the other
notion, he said, that the Bible was writ
ten by men who sat down without a
thought in their beads and wrote what
was given them by inspiration, nnd quoted
the reply of Mr. Angier, a Unitarian min
ister, to a Quaker critic, who objected to
" 'Twcre well If one could be sure of
that; but do you know, I have often
thought It would be better If your preach
ers would do my way. I write my sermon
on Monday, when I can, and then It takes
me all the reBt of the week to make up
my mind whether It is a message of the
spirit, with the result that I frequently
destroy It and write another." Continuing,
-Mr. Mann said:
"Many preachers might profit by Mr.
Angler's example. A fatal fluency too
men does duty as Inspiration. A bright
thought may come to one on the spur of
the moment, one knows not how, but it Is
not always safe to conclude that It comes
from the Lord. The devil has shown him

phrases. At all events the Lord la ' not

murred, urging that It came to him In
that ahape aa by Inspiration, and he did
not fel at liberty to tamper with a word
of the spirit. 'My good friend,' said the

agree with Mr. Kmerson In thla, but he

II r. Frank lake- speak In Itohemlan
to Large Audience of Countrymen.
Dr. Frank Iske of Chicago, the eminent
Ilohemlan scholar, and who is recognised
by his people In this country as the leader
of advanced religions thought, addressed
a large audience of Ms countrymen at
Hohemla hall. South Thirteenth street,
from 2:.10 until 4 o'clock Sunday afternoon.
Dr. Iske Is a combination of giant stature
and giant intellect. He Is a very large
man and entertains very "large" and broad
views regarding the religious doctrines
which have dominated the mother country
for centuries. Born at Veliesln, Bohemia,
December 3, lWU, be was educated for the
pulpit and was ordnlned a priest of the

to bis vestments until the propagation of
the dogma of Infallibility by Tope Pius
IX, In the year 1870. He then Joined the
"old church," associating himself with
that eminent religionist and power In the
old church. Bishop Iterzog, and In IS'JS

at Prague, Bohemia, where he established
a church and lectured in his own language

The doctor's lecture was delivered In
his native tongue and dealt with the
"Progressive Kfforts of the Bohemian Peo
ple" in all lands. They were a small but
progressive nation, he said; a nation that
had done Its duty to the world and had
contributed more to the progress of the
world, according to its size and number
of its people, than nations of large area
and with a vast population.
"During the ages when the world was

stltuted as It Is now. Our own civil war
was one of the great examples of this
mystery. Many, many Innocent ones suf
fered for the guilt of the few. Mankind ia
united In Joy aa It Is united In sorrow. We
cannot understand why the sins of the
fathers should be visited upon the children.
As we cannot explain, we must endure, and
seek to transform our sorrow Into Joy. It
Is In this that lies the essence of the value
of the soul.
"In It nre the rudiments of spiritual life,
and It grows like the child at school. In
creases In spiritual knowledge, ever learn
ing. A spiritual life does not mean particu
larly an Intellectual life, but It does mean
to live a spiritual life simply from the In
spiration and Instinct of the worship of
Hod. Man's first conception Is the con
sciousness that he Is more than mortal. It
Is essential then, that he should know some
thing of the real vaule of the human soul,
Its orlglp from God Himself. Ood endowed
It with the mystery of life. What a won
derful gift Is God's gift of life. How Inces
sant that longing for the life beyond the
grave and the chief beauty of the soul is
Its reccptlveness of moral beauty and truth.
All things come from Thee, oh God. How
little we in health realise the true enjoy
ment of God's goodness. It Is only when
we stand before suffering and sorrow that
we can know how we are blist. The aoul
should seek to know God and then we
would love 11 Im. How many of us realize
God's goodness to us? The only way to
show our appreciation of His love Is by
service to Him, our duty to Htm and to our
fellow men. Shall we not strive earnestly
and faithfully to serve Him. Our souls be
long to God. Let us make ourselves worthy
of Ills great love by making the soul He
has temporarily given la our keeping as He
would have It."
v New Interest at Zlon.
The basket gospel meeting at Zlon Bap
tist church yesterday, which continued
during the entire day, was largely at
tended and full of Interest. There was
an enthusiastic determination to bring the
church back to its old footing as one of
the most popular of the colored churches
of Omaha. The building is to be thor
oughly repaired nnd Improved In many
ways, and will in a short time become
one of tho most attractive of the smaller
church buildings of the city. A considera
ble sum was subscribed yesterday toward
the repair fund and the work will begin
at once. In brief, the church has taken
on a new lease of mnteriul as well as
spiritual life, and has a bright future
ahead of It. .
Boy beta m Hard Fall.
Harry ltuford, who is employed by the
Windsor stables, was taking a horse home
yesterday afternoon. He met two boy
flrends on the road. Henry Harney and
Koy Pries, who lives at l'AZi Capitol avenue.
Both of the lads were taken Into the
buggy and when they reached Fifteenth
nnd Capitol avenue In some manner the
Pries boy fell out. He received a cut about
two and one-half Inches in length on the
right side of his face, and his right ear
was also lacerated. The boy was removed
to the police station in the patrol wagon,
where his injuries were dressed by the po
lice surgeon. lie was sent to his home.
Two Small Fires.
Firemen were called to 1017 South Elev
enth street nt 12:44 yesterday afternoon to
put out a Are which hud originated in an
area way In the rear of the building. The
building Ik occupied by Charles B. Bech
told and others. No damage resulted. At 3
o'clock yesterday afternoon the depart
ment was again called out to 4328 Grant
street to extinguish a blaze which had
started In a shed In the rear of that num
ber. The property Is occupied by Samuel
J. Rockwell, and the damage amounted to
120. Both tires were caused 'by children

ALL TiKEU HELP TO DO GOD'S WILL.
Xo One Alone Can Resist Evil, Says
Kcv, Mr. Herring.
"The world passeth away and the last
thereof; but ho that doeth the will of God,
This text, taken from the second chapter
of the first epistle of John, was used by
the Kev. Hubert C, Herring as the subject
of his sermon yevterday morning- at the
First Congregational church, Nineteenth
and Davenport streets.
"We are painfully Impressed with the
change and decuy which go on around us,"
said tho minister. "Is there anything any
where that will abide The text answers
yes. That something Is a man uml it is a
man who does God's will. It this phrase
means only those who do God's will )ier
fectly, it affords small comfort. But John
habitually sees each lift as a unit, and
describes It by language suited to Its most
fundamental quality. Tho man who does
the will of God, Is therefore, tho man
whose dominant desire and effort la to do
that will. Such a mun has entered upon
an eternal career."
"To John's mind, the relationship thus es
tablished, with tho divine, Is one which
nothing can break. The accident called
death, will effect It not in the least. Our
own minds echo this belief even concerning
lesser relutlons. It is Impossible to believe
that a pure and sacred friendship can be
forever terminated by an assassin's bullet,
or a clot of blood on the brain. How much
less can the friendship between an obedient
heart and it's God."
"It Is not an Immortality of influence of
which John speaks here. Such ideas are far
from the spirit of the biblical writers. He
is thinking of a persistence of personal con
sciousness and activity. It la this hope
which gives solidity and dignity to life. We
are not laboring for today or tomorrow, but
for the ages. Though the universe should
fall and crush me,' said Pascal, 'I should
lie greater than the universe, for I should
be conscious of defeat, and it would be
unconscious of victory.' But, better than
that, we know that the universe cannot
crush us who are possessors of eternal
"Let no one think that he may at once
and unaided, begin to do God's will. The
powers of evil are too strong for us. We
must find Jesus Christ, freedom from the
guilt of our old life, and strength for a
new one. So we shall, travel calmly on and
sing In life or death. My Lord, Thy will be

The little old books tell how Ali Baba
acquired wealth with a mystical word, how
Aladdin rublied his brass lantern for for

skies built a wondroua palace with the
ring of the Nlblung; yet we do not turn
from the book to the carnival grounds
where equally marvelous, if somewhat
smaller structures, are going up, with any

But we are wrong for as usual In these

"Ben Ilur," the most wonderful spectacle
ever sent on the road, will begin Its second
Omaha engagement at the Boyd theater
this evening. The entire company arrived
last night from Toledo, O., where the show
closed on Saturday night, coming through
on special trains, and today will rehearse
at the Boyd, so that everything will be
ready for the ilrst performance this even
ing. The pieco opens with one of its most
beautiful tableaux! the Star of Bethlehem,
and the meeting of the Wise men in the
Desert, and to enjoy this all should be In
their seats when the curtain goes up
promptly at 8. A special effort Is being
made thla season to give tho overture and
Incidental music proper rendition, and to do
this an orchestra has been organized by
Klaw & Erlanger, comprising twenty-four
pieces, each member a skilled performer on
his Instrument. The engagement is for one
week, with matinees on Wednesday and
Saturday, and plenty of good scats may
still be obtained at the box office.

AT THE PLAYHOUSES
"Indrr gonthern kles" at the Kroa.
When Lottie Blair Parker writes a play
she goes after "heart Intereat," and she
usually gets It, no matter how far she has
to go. "L'nder Southern Skies" Is southern
only because it la so set. If the stage man
ager would substitute icebergs for sub
tropical flora, the piece could as well be
railed "At the North Pole," for the name
has nothing to do with the story. It might
have happened anywhere, and In all human
probability never did. In the first act the
characters are Introduced and an Inkling is
given of the incident on which the action
of the piece turns; In the second act things
begin to occur, and In the third the flood
tide la reached, with a genuine emotion
stirring climax; while the fourth is aa
peaceful an antl-cllmax as one could wish,
where everything is straightened out, all
are united or reunited, old scores are for
given and everybody Is mado as happy as
possible, saving only the unfortunate young
man who allowed his seal In love to lead
him Into doing a very unpretty trick; and
even he Is sent away with a new and better
feeling In his heart, to lead a different life,
probably In the next township, although
the locality Is not mentioned.
Most ambitiously Is the piece staged, and
most effectively, too. In fuct, its success
must be attributed as much to the stage
manager as to the author. Its scenic set
ting is artistic, the exterior being one on
which money and pains have been lavished
without stint, while the Interior Is an ex
cellent reproduction of an old southern
mansion. The birthday gathering In ' the
first act and the Hallowe'en merrymaking
In the second are bits of very refreshing
realism, and were much enjoyed by the
The company Is a large one, for the cast
calls for about double the number of people
usually seen In a popular-price piece, and
Is very well balanced as to ability. No ex
treme of histrionic ability is called for In
any of the roles, and yet there Is a fair
scope for some real acting, and this la
forthcoming. Miss Victorson, who has the
role of Ielia, the sorely-tried heroine, rises
to the occasion In the climax of both the
second and third acts with much power
and with well-judged emotion. Mr. Ave
llng, who has the part of the lover who
loses, shows a strong Inclination to overdo
his share of the work, but not so much so
ns to mar the scenes. One of the real de
lights Is the naturalness of the stage pic
tures and the enthusiasm with which the
young folks enter Into the games and
dances Incidental to the second act.
"Under Southern Skies" will be at the

Vaudeville at the t'relghton-Orpheani.
A bill largely predominated by music,
with an accompaniment of really clever
gymnastics and some good fun opened the j
second week of the season at the Crelgh-
mn-urpneum, wun me cusiomary Dig
Sunday attendance. Easily the favorltei
are the Waterbury brothers and Tenny,
who have been coming to Omaha annually
for many years, and who have never
reached the limit of their welcome. And,
ton, one Is inclined to believe that they
have not yet reached the limit of their ca
pacity for making both good music and
good fun. All three are fine performers on
a number of different instruments, and
Fred Tenny Is one of the funniest come
dians that ever blacked up. They were
recalled again and again last night Among
the newcomers, the Josselln trio scored the
hardest. In this turn two women and a
man do a series of graceful and one or two
difficult acts on a trupeso, and wind up
with a series of suspended poses, producing
some beautiful pictures In the limelight,
the effect being ub novel as It Is pleasing.
The dancing of the Fleury trio Is grace
ful and pleasing, and won much applause.
Annette Moore's very sweet and well con
trolled soprano voice won her a double re
call, to which she responded. Hodges and
Launchmere sing well, nnd dance some,
and the McWaters and Tyson company
contribute a sketch and some Imitations
to the bill. Haines and Vldocq furnish a
bunch of stuff on the order of Jainei
Moores' monologue, and would likely be
come more popular If they didn't spend so
much time roasting the audience for re
fusing to throw fits over their ancient
"wheezes" and mildewed "Junk."
