He took for hi suhject six words from

said, "and thT swmpd to take hold on
rti" a certain Indescribable feeling of un
rr.it. There was all about me that strange
furling which has corn to some of us when
n loved one was passing away Into the
xrmt unknown. It seemed that the news
tors on the street were calling out extras,
ml 'when I looked at the papers. I 4w
the big headlines, Ood Is Dead." Then
the men forgot their bargaining and every
thing they were doing and rushed away.
'If God Is dead,' they Bald, 'tho sun may
not ' rise on the morrow, and nothing Is
sure. Let ir.e go home to my family and
taks my little boy on my knee and press
a kiss on my wife's Hps while yet I may.'
"And through these Imaginings the hor

"He U alive for If He could die. He would
not Be all powerful. I'd rather have an
apparently contradictory philosophy which
cannot explain the place of evil In the
world than to have a limited God.
"In all my life I have failed to find any
considerable rtumbpr of people who do not
believe In Ood. Ton cannot get aldng with
out the fundamental fact that there Is a
great living God. I care not whether He
comes to you through the Intellect, through
rreat feeling flooding the soul, or through
the will. I care" not how the Impulse came
to you, but somehow, sometime, I believe
there has entered your soul the feeling
that - life would not be worth living were
it not for h God who lives.
"How Impossible It ta to establish In a
community, a church, built on anything
but the crops of Christ, that will tear away
the doubts and clouds and raise men up to
heaven. . you may establish a lecture course
In the pulpit, you may organize a fraternal
order or a social circle, but these do not
muke a church. A real church must have
the divine thrill, which comes from a
knowledge of the living God.
"How powerful is the thought of God.
When the. news came to New York that
Lincoln was dead, and men by thousands
surged through the streets bent on doing
damage to those who had spoken tO.glitinsly
of their loved leader, Garfield stepped out
on a balcony, and waiving the stars and
stripes, said to the mob, 'Fellow citizens,
God reigns and the government at Wash
ington still lives." The people were stopped
on the spot by his words. They thought
of judgment, of Justice, of God, and the
danger was averted."

Her, Dr. Clarke Insists More Generoaa
Response Most Ha Made.
In his sermon on "America for Christ,"
delivered at the Lowe Avenue Presbyterian
church Sunday morning, the Rev. A. S. C.
Clarke gave aome Interesting statistics
which showed that, while this western
country la getting more prosperous each
year, the contributions for home mission
ary work are decreasing.
"While the country is bo prosperous that
the people do not know what to do with
(heir money and western money la now
seeking eastern Investment,'' said Mr.
Clarke, "the percaplta contribution for
hum mission work has decreased In the
last ten years from 11.6 to M cents. Not a
penny of this money la cpeut outside of
the borders of Nebraska. It la true that
the money Is sent to the mission board In
New York, but every dollar that Is sent
there has been sent back to Nebraska, to
gether with 17.60. The entire state last
year contributed 12,93 for mission work.
v!ille it" drew from the mission board the
Hiii-i of 1:1,022. The Omaha synod con
tributed only $517. while It received In re
turn 11.47.. The Lowe avenue church con
tributed K9.SI, or the sum of 118 cents per
capita. Nebraska contributed W centa per
Mr. Clarke prefaced his statistics with
the statement that America Is truly a
Christian nation and that while It had
been discovered by Columbus as the repre
sentative of Ferdlnaad and Isabella, he
was also acting for the Catholic church
and his first act upon landing was to set
up a- cross nd give thanks to God.
"All through the history of our country
It has been the missionary who has biased
the. way," said Mr. Clarke, "and It has
been commerce that followed and not the
reverse. But In these latter days people
have become so consumed with the Idea
of making money that they are forgetting
the work of Christ and It Is time a halt
Is called. Money Is a grand thing as a
meana to an end, but It la by no means
the end. Wa need the missionary as much
today as we ever did. Every year thou
sands of Immigrants with no religion are
landed on our shores and beoome residents
of our country. They must be taught re
ligion If the government Is to survive. It
can only be done by the borne missionary."
Mr. Clarke urged his hearers to stop
for a moment In the wild nish for weslth
and think of the spiritual side of life and
to capture America for Christ. That he
held was ona of the Injunctions of God.

Father Martin Luersman preached at
Sd John's Collegiate church Sunday morn
ing en the Ingratitude and helnousnesa of
sin toward Ood. "When we commit sin,"
he said, we surrender the faculties of our

eerted In the Foreign Field.
R K. Colton. International secretary of
the Young Men's Christian association,
spoke st the Seward Ptreet Mi-thodlst Kpls
copal church Sunday morning upon the
work and Influence of the association In
the foreign mission field. He sold In part:
"It Is my purpose to speak of the non
Christian nations of the world and the ex
tent and Influence of the work of spread
ing the gospel of Jesus ChrlFt through
the agency of the student class and their
Importance In relstlon to foreign mission
work and the establishment of mission col
leges. The best missionary work Is that
accomplished by those who can sneak and
understand the language of the nations
among whom they work. To this end we
must educate the natives in order that
they may become missionaries, and we
must send out young men, well prepared
by education, to educate these future mis
sionaries. The cost of Christian service
In China Is about tW per year for the
Individual teacher. It Is a well known
fact that but few young men enter our
secular universities with a view to taking
a theological training. The Young Men's
Christian association seeks to cause young
men to take up a theological course in or
der that they may become missionaries, or
teachers In our mission colleges In China,
Egypt and elsewhere."
Relative to the time when the mission
churches of foreign lands should become
self-suportlng. he said:
"That can only come when there shall
be attached to those churches those who
can advance sufficient money for that pur
pose. The wealthy classes In the foreign
field have not yet been reached. We are
engaged in a mighty war and the Christian
forces of the world must array themselves
against the forces of sin."
An Interesting feature of the meeting
was a vocal solo, "Hosanna," by Mrs. J.

The Omaha Water company, regarding
the advertisement of water rates by the
Water Board of the city of Omaha as
calculated to mislead citizens and water
consumers with respect to the facts of
the situation, desires to say that the re
duced rates attempted to bo fixed for
Omaha consumers by the Water Board
have not become finally established, but
are still the subject of controversy In the
courts, the water company contending that
the Water Board had no power to reduce
the rates because of the city's original
contract with the company fixing the limit
of the company's charges, which the com
pany has never exceeded, and contending
also that the reduced rates are unreason
able. Should these contentions be sustained
as the result of the company's pending
suit, all consumers who shall have mean
time paid only the reduced rates will be
subject to legal proceedings for the re
covery of the difference. Should the re
duced rates be ultimately established the
company will, of course, refund to each
consumer who shall meantime have paid
the full rate- the difference between that
rat and the rate as reduced.

There Is every Indication that the amend
ment voted on at the last election In New
York state, which provides for a bond
Issue of .Vt,ono,X for highway Improve
ment, has passed, although an official count
has yet to be made.
The amendment for which sutomobilists
have worked very hard, will no doubt be
considered a precedent for similar Issues
In other states, and its adoption promises
a great deal for road Improvement In the
future. Under the new amendment New
York state will Issue $5,000,000 worth of
bonds each year for five years, which will
be used for building highways In the state.
The state will bear 60 per cent of the In
terest on these bonds, the county 85 per
cent and the town 15 per cent. Five per
cent Interest on S.0O9 a rulle will mean
$100 a year Interest to be apportioned.
Condition of the Bonds.
The Supervisors' Good Roads convention
at Albany planned the $50,000,000 bond issue
In order to enable the most remote parts
of the state with low assessed valuation
to obtain, if they desire, expensive roads
Immediately and without a burdensome
state, county or town tax. Under the bond
Issue any community can have the main
highway Improved at any cost that local
conditions require, and are not compelled
to have an expensive road built. If they
should want an expensive road costing
W.000 a mile. It would be paid for under
the bond Issue In the following way: Fifty
per- cent by the state, 35 per ceut by the
county and 15 per cent by the town, and
the state would Issue bonds for $8,000.
There would be no town bonds and no
county bonds. The state would pay from
Its annual revenues C per cent on $4,000,
which is one-half of the cost of the road,
or $200 for the first yenr. The county would
pay 6 per cent on $2,800, 25 pur cent of the
cost, which would call for an increase
lu the county tax of $140 for each mile of
highway that the county approved of. The
town would pay 6 per cent on $1,200, 15
per cent of the cost, or would Increase its
tax $00 for each mile of highway Im
proved. There Is no. town hi 'the state
but what can have one mil of road Im
proved at $G0 increase in taxes, and many
of them will want .their five or ten miles
or main highway Improved under the bond
Issue, because they will get the roads Im
mediately, and for five miles will only in
crease their town tax $200, and for ten
miles Increase the town tax $&X, while If
the roads can be built In that community
for $4,0o0 a mile, the town will get twenty
nines or jughway for the $ri00 increase In
tax. Under the bond issue the countv
and towns can choose what amount of
money they want to spend for each mil
of highway according to what the local
conditions will permit.
Increase tn Speed.
When it Is considered that the first au
tomobile race held ten years ago In Franco
resulted In the winning car averaging fif
teen miles an hour, while In the last Van
derbllt race the winner traveled at an
average speed for the entire 288 miles at
the rate of sixty-two miles an hour, the
tremendous advance made In motor car
construction In a comparatively short time
can be understood. In -o other manu
facturing business has anything been
brought to a point of perfection In such
a brief space of time as it has taken to
briny tht automobile to its present state.
Motor tn Commerce.
There Is no getting around the fact that
tht commerolal motor vehicle has come to
stay. Not only for use In delivery service,
but also n the handling of passenger
trafflo has this type of car shown itself
to be far superior to the horse . drawn
conveyance. Especially is this true in tho
case of vehicles which are used the year
around. The problem of heating and light
ing may be very easily solved when a
gasoline motor is used for propelling
power. The heat from the exhaust gases
or the cooling water may be utilized by
making use of radiators which are placed
along the floor of the car. This nest
would naturally go to waste, and therefore
this very desirable advantage may be ob
tained at practically no cost at all. The
lighting problem Is almost as easily solved.
A small dynamo, driven direct from the
engine, together with a storag battery,
furnishes an electric power plant which
may be depended upon at all times., Many
of the up-to-date stage lines in the west
have contracted for such wagonettes, and
those who have been using them pronounce
the proposition a great success. The same
principles may be applied to delivery
wagons, so that ere long the delivery man
can make his long winter trips In compar
ative comfort, keeping himself In better
health, and In many ways give his house
more effective service.
With the coming of cold weather a
formula for a good anti-freezing solution
to be used In motor vehicle radiators may
not come amiss. One of the best solutions
which has been used for this purpose is
as follows: Glycerine, 49 per cent; sodium
carbonate, I per cent; water, 49 per cent.
One filling of the water system will last
indefinitely, as neither the water or gaso
line will evaporate to any great extent.
The mixture Is comparatively cheap and
thorough testing has proven that It has
no effect on galvanized Iron or rubber hose
and very little action on copper. A mix
ture of equal portions of glycerine and
water shows up very well, but Is not quite
as good as the formula above. A solution
of calcium chloride and water having a
density of about 2 per cent baume Is
sometlmea used, but the one objection to
It Is that It attacks galvanized Iron and
must be carefully kept st nearly the same
density all tho time to give It good anti
freezing qualities. Another mixture some
times used and one which has practically
no .action on any of the metal is given:
Alcohol, 25 per cent; water, 75 per cent;
or, alcohol, 35 per cent; water, tt per cent.
When either of these solution is used
the water system must be kept enclosed
and perfectly tight in order to keep the
solution at the proper strength.
Side Door en Front Seat.
For the coming winter side door on
the from seats will be the proper thing
in motor car equipment. They have been
quite popular in Europe, and this year
one of the prominent American cars baa
a design of body which Includes this fea
ture. The doors are hinged at the front
and fastened with a cab door lock at the
rear. Built rather low and provided with
a molding along th top, they give the
car a decided rakish appearance. Aside
from their artistic use. they are very valu
able In keeping out the cold, mud and
water which oftentimes makes automobtllng
in winter a rather doubtful sport.
An Incident full of suggestion occurred in
on uptown New York throughfare the other
day. One of a team of horses hitched to th
delivery wagon of a big department store
slipped on the aephalt. fell, broke his leg
and had to be allot on the spot. A few
minute after. In response to a telephone
message, an Oldsmobile delivery wagon of
ixteen-horee-power. that la part of the big
sior s rulliroj stock, appeared. First, Ui
load that the team had been drawing was
transferred and piled on too of what wns
already in the motor vehicle. Then the
wagon thst was deatgned to be horseless
took In tow the one that had been bereft,
and later hsuling it to the stable, scooted
away and did the work of both and fin
ished ahead of the time schedule for th
horse team vehicle. '
