Tim U ComlBK When Christianity
Will Bind All Mem Together In
Moral Brotherhood, At gar
The tlvme of Rev. C. C. Cisseirs ser
mon at Haniwom Park Methodl.st Episcopal
church yesterday morning -was "Is . the
world better today than In former day?"
His text was from fcccleslastes vll:10 "Say
not thou, what was the cause that the for
mr days were better than these? For
thou dost not enquire wisely concerning
Rev. Mr. Cisse'.l did not agree with an
eminent essayist who In a recent magazine
article deplored the decadence of civiliza
tion, and declared the world was retro
grading. "If this be true," said Rev. Mr.
Clasell, "the Allwtae has become weary and
turned Himself back on Ills pathway. But
It Is not true. No reasonable man will
agree with any such pessimistic doctrines.
The fact Is that these days stand head
and shoulders above any other age of the
world's history. The telephones and te'e-
graph and constant new discoveries for the
material benefit of man are the material
blessings of the age, and then, too, there
is the greatest progress In holler things,
moral and spiritual. Those are days when
men struggle for more emancipation, and
from abuse to let them Into that broader
- -life given of Gcd. The idea of human
liberty Is better today than In former times.
No liberty was known to lndivlduul men
until the coming of Christ,
"Woman has been emancipated from the
slavery of former years. Jesus Christ
unread the benign truth that every Individ
ual was worthy of God and God's salva
tion. We live in the time that has seen
the Inst vestige of the slave.
"Temperance, . instead of sentiment, has
now become an economic necessity. Under
the laws of the land the scientific aspect of
temperance Is taught in every school, and
the coming generation will handle this
.question on a still higher plane. God's Son
will never lay down the scepter of Ills
Kingdom until the scepter of the world
be His Kingdom.
"Last year more bibles were printed than
in the nineteen centuries before. So the
world is not growing worse. These leaves
are the healing leaves, preaching God's
coming time when the world shall be
His. Christ was a healer and Christianity
bound men together in moral brotherhood,
and the world Is moving onto that consum
mation with swift steps. God will never
forsake the world, for It is growing bettor.
We are approaching that day when we
shall see it with the rising and going

Rev. F. W. Leavltt of Seward occupied
tho pulpit of the First Congregational
church yesterday morning and preuchej
on the value of the rare Jewel of righteous
ness In the poor setting of the human
body,' taking for his text II Corinthians,
lv:7. He sail In part:
' "The rare Jewel Is rarely estimated. It
does not inspire the slightest desire for
possession to the Ignorant and unfortu
nately to many that are not ignorant in
the world's estimation. To the Christian
there are more elements, of satisfaction in
the possession of religion than In anything
else In the world. The cross of Christ ap
pears ridiculous to the Greek, but to the
Christian it is the lever uplifting humanity
by His sacrifice.

GOD'S OPISIO OF MAX'S WORTH
Her. Mr. Stevenson Says It Is Not
Based on Possessions.
Rev. R. M. Stevenson, at the First Pres
byterian church, chose for his text at the
morning service, Luke xll:15, "And He said
unto them. Take heed and beware of cov
etousness; for a man's life consists not
In the abundance ot the things which he
"Is God opposed to men having brond
acres and full granariesT" said Rev. Dr.
Stevenson. "The man of whom' Jesus
speaK makes no recognition of God, no
thought of God or fellow man, purely sel
fishness. Bradstrect would have Invoiced
his belongings, had such an agency existed
at that time, and would have given you
his worth in worldly goods, but not so
with Jesus. In His opinion this man was
worth nothing, for he put nothing into
"The period of depression and hard times
Is not so far behind us but that we can
remember it was not what a hank had or
what a man possessed that determined his
worth. We have a principle laid down
here In this text which Is of very wide
application. It applies to everything a
man may h-.ve. He may have an educa
tion which makes him a veritable en
cyclopedia, but this does not Increase his
worth. It Is the knowledge which he
spreads that determines his true value
to the world.
"jflot all have knowledge that can be
given, but each has something which la
of value. Let no one here today say that
because he has no money he can do no
good In the world.. No greater mistake
can be made. Though the millionaire uses
his money to the best of his ability, the
governess in his home may be a much
greater blessing to the world by training
up his children to make them good men
and women. It Is possible for all who
live to accomplish something of good in
the name of the Master."
Dr. Stevenson closed with a strong ap
peal for financial assistance for Bellevue
college, which was met with a liberal re
sponse. SCIENCE OF BASE BALL CURVES
vh-rs anI Wherefores or in
"Shoots" Which Make Batsmen
Saw tho Air.
The curve of the base ball Is now no
longer open to deubt, but the questloa
with the scientific) Inquirer Is, Why does
It curve? And this question the Scientific
American answers. The pitcher in the
field tells us that the ball curves, because,
he gives It a twist, but scientifically this
will not do. Why will the twist make the
eurve? If a ball were thrown in a cer
tain dlrecUon, and If the force of gravi
tation were not at work, the ball would
continue on In a straight line forjver.
Some forco of resistance is, then, at work
when a ball is made to deviate from its
straight course. If a feather Is dropped
In a vacuum In an exhausted receiver of
an air pump It will drop like a shot but

go down irregularly and slowly, shifting
from side to side.
It is the atmosphere which causes a
ball to curve. Bearing in mind that the
atmosphere Is a comprehensible, elastlo gas.
we find that when the ball leaves the
hand of the pitcher with a rapid rotary
motion it "impinges upon a .continuous
elastic cushion," and this moderate resist
ance, or friction, changes its course in
the direction which is given to the rotary
motion. Tako an outshoot of a right-
handed pitcher, for instance He im
presses upon the ball a tapid centrifugal
rotary motion to the left, and the ball
goes to the left, because the atmosphere
compressible-and elastic, Is packed into an
elastlo cushion Just ahead of the ball by
the swift forward and rotary motion, and
the friction, which is very great right In
front of the ball, steer it in the direction
which It Is turning.
The denBer'the atmosphere the raster
It Is to curve the ball. At sea level, or,
say, in Philadelphia, the atmospheric pres
sure Is about fifteen pounds to the square
inch, and the ball curves easily; In Denver
the atmospheric pressure is only about
twelve and a half pounds to the square inch
and therefore it is hard to make curves,
though the puxsled scientist finds that the
batting average in Denver are about the
same as in other parts of the country.
Perhaps the pitchers are more skillful or
the batters unskilled.
The whole matter may be summed up.

the loss and gave a description of a man
who sat behind them during the service.
The police recognized the description as
being that of George Pete, released from
the Jail a few days before. His room was
located and a detective placed there. About
noon he returned, resplendent in a new
suit of clothes and a clean shave. The
clothes worn by the man In church and
described by the women were found on his

Pete was arrested by Detective Drummy
and taken to Jail on the charge of being
a suspicious character. In a few hours
the women called at the station and Identi

tallied with the description given by the
two women. At the station Pete was ar
rayed In the garments found on his bed
and made to kneel in a praying attitude
so that the identification might be com'
plete. Two companions accompanying
Misses Gard and Bondeson to the station
said Pete answered the description of the
man they saw at the church in the morn

seen him in the church on other recent
occasions. Among Pete's effects was found
a string of rosary beads.

The Omaha and South Omaha members
of the Bohemian Fraternal Benevolent as
sociation celebrated the fiftieth anniversary
of the foundation of the association at the
Bohemian Turners" hall on Bouth Thir
teenth street yesterday afternoon. The
parent society was organised fifty years
ago in St. Louis, and the Omaha and
South Omaha branches have been organ
ised about twenty years, and each has a
large membership. The exercises at th
hall were preceded by a long parade. In
which uniformed Woodmen participated
with the men and women of the socletle.
The program of exercises consisted of
various musical and literary features.
President Koutsky of the Omaha branch,
delivered the address of welcome. F.
Dlenstbler of South Omaha presided.
Children of the Omaha and South Omnha
Bohemian free schools participated in the
program with a number of well rendered
songs and recitations In the Bohemian
language. Associated with the. Jubilee were
a number of the various Bohemian so
cieties. The hall was beautifully decorated
with bunting and flowers and there was a
large attendance not alono from the cities
of Omaha and South Omaha but from
Council Bluffs and other cities.
The principal speakers of the afternoon
were.K. Rosewatcr of Omaha, and Joseph
Mekota, a prominent attorney of Cedar
Rapids, la. Mr. Rosewater spoke of the
pleasure he had In being associated with
the Bohemians by birth, and their general
excellence a citizens. "In the fifty years
past," he said, "Bohemia had contributed
to America a class of citizens distinguished
for their probity, Industry and Intelligence,
and none are more law abiding or valuable
citizens than they." Mr. Rosewater's ad
dress was In the Bohemian language and
was heartily applauded.
The address of Mr. Mekota was also In
the Bohemian tongue and bore particularly
upon the excellence of the work of the as
sociation whose Jubilee they were cele
brating. "It had a tendency," he said,
"to make better citizens of Its members
and has accomplished infinite good, and
could accomplish greater good for the
future. The society has kept free from
religious and political contention and
worked only for the fraternal purposes for
which it was organized." .Ills address was
greeted with applause.
Pretty Girls Take Part.
A number of pretty girls, members of the
Girls' Omaha and South Omaha Bohemian
Turners' societies, gave exercises In-calis
thenics and drills with remarkab'.e skill
and grace, and the program closed for the
afternoon with a one-act play by the mem
bers of the societies.
Thanks were extended to all who con
tributed to tho afternoon's exercises. The
committee on arrangements comprised the
following: Charles Shabata, Anton Semik,
