LrNCOLN, Aug. 5. (Special ) Governor
T. W, Hoch was the principal at
traction at the Epworth assembly today,
where ha lectured on the topic, "A Mes
sage from Kanaaa," In which he outlined
his light sgslnst the Standard OH company
and the condlttona which led him Into the
contest. During the morning Rev. Mark
Ouy Fearer In an addreaa before the
preachers at the- assembly, apoka of the
need for practical charitable and eoclal
work, with particular reference to the
luma. lfe fulminated Rgalnet selfishness
among the preacliera. lie told of hla per
sonal experience In the alums of London.
Speaking of the attitude of the church
toward this problem, he said:
"fV sit In our corrifortable homes after
a full meal and read wtlh horror of the
dolnga of anarchlata, and It la ail very well,
but when I think how men and women
and children are compelled to live In this
world I wonder that there are not more
"Men after doing an honest day's toll
unrequited, come home, live, eat and sleep
In one room In many of our great cltlea.
Why doea not the church concern Itself
He declared that the church must at
least be made as attractive to the work-
lngman aa the saloon. Moat of the churchea
are ahut up for an entire week, while the
aaJoon la open and anxious to ensnare Its
victims. lie remarked that Americans
were not slow to adopt new Ideas, espe
daily when there la money In them.
vt nai is tns use of trying to save
souls," he aaked, "when we are content
to allow human being to live under the
moat awful material conditions? War or
strong drink Is not the curse of life. It Is
religion professed and not practiced. Give
yourself to a life of love and tender serv
ice and throw the doors of the church wide
open to the poor and the unfortunate of the
universe. It Is no wonder that the great
bulk of humanity, engaged In the cease
less and , titanic struggle for a mere ex
Sstence, does not enter the church In large
number. They are attracted elsewhere.
while the members are engaged In trying
to save their own souls."

All that Kansas wants Is that the cor

The report also shows that the assessors

Demand for Trained Teachers.
Principal t'rabtree of the Peru State Nor
mal, on his return from a tour of the
Junior normals, said that there Is a big
demand for trained tearhers, and pointed
to the fact that nearly every graduate of
the Peru Normal for If bus already se
cured good employoient In the schools.
He has found that school boards are d--mandlng
that the teachers have normal
training and that there la a tendency to
raise the bars against those not qualified
In that manner. He believed that there will
be all the work the state normals can do.
A .larger attendance than ever Is antici
pated at Peru this fall.
Improvement nt Tern.
The head of the Peru school has plans
ndcr way for the construction of n brlrK
eneered dormitory In which provision will
be made fur light housekeeping so that the
young women students may cook their own
meals. To asplst and train them In house
hold duties a domestic science laboratory
will be placed In the same building and
the students will, the principal says, re
ceive credit for cooking and washing dishes.
Two girls will be allowed to use each of
the forty-eight rooms, to each of which
kitchen will be attached. Everything
will be furnished for light houveplng.
and it Is planned to rent the rooms at the
rate of 78 cents a week for each girl. Mr.
Crabtree says that the self-boarding
heme, as be terms It, has already oper
ated successfully at rem, many girls main
taining themselves and paying room rent
on 11.00 a week. This low cost Is accounted
for by the cheapness of vegetables and
fruit at Peru, which Is due to the failure
of the producers to ship to city markets.
He vouches for the good quality or me
food and the care with which It Is pre
pared, a member of his staff having gen
eral oversight to see that none of the
students In the solf-boHrdlng scheme tries
Wants Teachers to Marry.
Prof. C'rahtree, who la the father of
the scheme, asserts that It Is part of his
purpose to equip the young women grad
uates of the school with a knowledge of
domestic art and science against the time
when they will be called upon to preside
over their own homes. He believes that
It Is quite the proper thing for a young
woman who has taught five years to marry.
and urges, as one of the arguments In favor
of his plan of a self-boarding dormitory.
the preparation which It will give the young
women for household duties.
Increase Mi of Library nnlldtnar.
Recently the old wooden library building
has been doubled lrt size, and covered with
brick veneer. When the new library
provided for by the lost legislature la
completed, the old structure will be turned
over to the science department of the
school. The contract for the new building
was not let at the last session of the
board owing to the unwillingness of con
tractors to attempt more work than they
have on their hands for this season. An
effort Is being made to secure a bid through
private solicitation on the part of the
secretary of the board, J. I McErlen. Be
cause of the enormous extent of the build
lng operations under way, the board will
give the bidder his own time.
Made Money RnyliiST State Und.
The purchaser of a quarter section of
penitentiary land at a recent sale made HIUi
money out of the deal. He bought It for
I6.640, or 141.60 an acre a few weeks ago,
and has now sold It for JS.ooO. The first
purchaser was Herman D. St ruffing. The
land lies In the western part of Lancaster
county. The sale was authorized by the
legislature. All the penitentiary land has
been sold for about $23,000, which is to
be used In buying land near the prison
where It can be cultivated by convict
labor. The land to be bought will cost
$100 an acre.
Land Commissioner Eaton said today
that the fact that the land had been sold
at a profit of $1,400 shortly after the state
disposed of It did not Imply laxness on
nis part Derause ne did not nave any
power to reject bids after the land was
advertised. In addition he says that the
sale price was $6 above the apprajsement
made by the Lancaster county commls
sloners. He charged that county com
mlssinners usually try to take advantage
of the state on such occasions and say
that he has frequently found It necessary
to reject an appraisement on school land
because It unduly favors the local pur
chaser. Ho said that he does not blam
the I-anc.-inter county commissioners, be
llevlng that they placed what they thought
was a fair value on the land,' although It
was very much below the last sale price,
