LAYMAN ON MISSION WORK
Chairman (hut of the Forward Ifoveaert
Addresses Triiity Congregation.
ILLUSTRATION OF THE GREAT EFFORT
Mhnt linn Ilren Don Anionu the

In Japan anil C hina li
Sprd.il missionary services were held nt
Trinity cathedral yesterday morning with
excellent nniRlc nrruriKed for the occasion.
In place of the irnnon Dean P.oecher liml
requested Cli ment Chop to deliver mi ad
dress on the work of the laymen's For
ward Jlovi-iiiftit, of which Mr. Chase
Is chairman for the Sixth department of
the Episcopal church.
Mr. Chafe defined the object of thli
movement ns an ni'l"avor to Interest t ; i J' -rnen
In misHluns a real and living
ixsui and to arouso In them an mlenimte
conception of the privilege of cn-opcratin
with the missionary representative of the
church In sending a knowledge, of the'
ChrlHtlan faith to others at homo anl
broad. After outlining the work already
undertaken In this and other departments,
referring especially to the great m-ellng
of buslnenK men held lust month In Chl
cipo, the speaker showed that this deep
enlnK Intciest In the missionary life of
the church Is finding expresFlon In a
stady and gratifying Increase In the re
ceipts of the Hoard of Missions. The total
for the last fiscal. year was J1.677.43S. an
amount much lamer than ever before.
The greatest pain is found In the offerings
of congregations, which have actually
doubled. It Is therefore evident tlint the
gain In offerings represents a healthy
growth, to be mainly credited to the lately
adopted apportionment plan.
What Missionaries Accomplish.
Mr. Chaso then wont Into the subject
of the missions themselves. He said:
This apportionment plan, which litis been
found to work nut so smoothly, docs not
appeal to all alike. There aru some who
do not wish In lilvc to missions under any
pretext and who set up nil sorts of excuses
to avoid tlie glvinir. There Is my friend.
Mr. I.lttlchcnrt. who exi hilnis. "I do not
believe is missions." All I want to do with
Huch men as hi; Is to educate them with I
little travel in I heir own or other lards.
Come with me. Mr. T.ittl'hart, up to the
Ploux reservation in South Dakota at th"
time the Irdi.ins of t lie Kplscopnl church
lire holding their annual convocation. There
Is nowhere in the 1'nlted States, at jmy
time of the year. H religious gathering 'Mat
surpasses or even equals this In Interest.
, The Indians have been gathering for days,
coming on horses ami In slow lumber
wagons from sixtv-flve to ;! miles to tit
tend this uplifting. encouraging, inspiring,
noble gathering. Climb this hill with me
and look down into n natural ampltheat'-r.
rlrcled for thfee miles witli tents, over 'OH
l"nts Kli- lierliiK 2..VKI Sioux Indians. Twen-tv-flve
nrs ago, if you had come across
gatherlnn like this, you would have dis
cerned In the center of the camp booth
surrounding the tall pole erected for the
horrid rite of the sun dance. Now you see
a ImioIIi containing an altar and a chancel,
a bootli never large enough to hold the
cnngri nations that make their communion
there. Where a generation since you would
have seen the iii,iws dancing and heard
them "bl-yl-lng" to a discordant accom
paniment of tom-toms, now you see theni
coming forward to present their offerings.
Offering; for what? For missions, forsooth;
they themselves uol yet out of the mission
field giving of their small enrnlngs nearly
.'..tot for missionary work in other fields-,
lere Is a s.iciiln-e involved equal to nearly
that many thousands of dollars from one of
our moderately wealthy congregations. It
Is wonderful, pathetic, humiliating.
And how tlieso people do love I heir
rtishop, the saintly Hare! Wee that tall In
dian over there? He has brought a barrel
of Missouri river water fifty miles, so that
Ida hlshop should not have to drink the
surface water of this barren district. Is
that not devotion Itself? Is that not an
Index of true faith? Is not this wliol"
ceno an Inspiration and most abundant
proof of what less than thirty-live years of
missionary work has done to bring the
fierce, warlike, heathen Sioux to this ear
nest ChrlHtlan character? Shall not Hlshop
Mar and his self-sacritlcing clergy have
our support and encouiaKiinent?
Mission Work In Alaska.
If this does not appeal to you. Mr. l.ltth
heart, turn your eyes northward, to tar
away Alaska, over whose winter trail
Hlshop Jtowo Is tramping tonight to carry
tha consolation of religion to the Inhab
itants of that Inhospitable region. Can you
listen to thu Blurt. B ot the fortitude and
sacrifice of this Chrlatlan bialmo,
whoso lovable nature, combined with bull
dog grit, make lilui one of the most re
markable, characters III tlie church and

who have ipiosUonod ilishop Howe s ability
to have tramped -,il miles on one Journey

one was allowed to die indoors lor fear
of placing the- houso under a hoodoo, so,
no matter what tho weather or the tem

That Inhuman supersiii ion has now been
done away with, and Willi it also went the

what l:i being done by the medical mission

thousand blind Chinese are groping their
way through life, he said, each susceptible

The services at Immanuel Haptisl church
Sunday morning were coiniui niorutlve of
the first anniversary of the pastorate of
Ilev. P. If. McDowell, and the several
church ofheers submitted reports of the
church work during- the last year. It was
shown by the report of the clerk that there
are at present i;su members of the church,
forty-three mule ami eighty-seven female.
There were thirty-nine acquisitions to the
church during the year. Of this number
fourteen were by baptism, twenty-three by
letter und two by experience. There were
fifteen dismissals during the year and two
The financial report of the church was
very encouraging, allowing; as it did a
material reduction of the church indebted
ness, and very few outstanding bills at
this time. Liberal payments have been
made on the church's new lots at Twenty
second and Plnckney streets, and It Is ex
pected that work on the new church build
ing will begin early the coming seuson.
I'pon the conclusion of the reports of
officers, Kev. McDowell delivered a short.
Informal address of appreciation to those
who had work to do and have done it. He
"I believe that there Is a wave of right
eousness sweeping ovr r this land. The
holding of an office In the nation as well
rs the church is a trust. Our church of
ficers have a keen sense ot the obligation
they owe to the churcli and have served
the church faithfully and with loyal zeal
to the. Cause of Christ. I want to thank
all who have helped, in the upbuilding of
this church In the last year. Especially
aro our thanks due to the noble women
of the church. While we are grateful for
the work of the last year let It stimulate
us to greater effort for the coining year.
Prayer, Hible study and jK'rsnnal work are
essential to fids end. Let us aim to secure
l'Xl new members by conversion; to a

for the Master, and. lastly, let us decide
to celebrate our next anniversary in our

aftenonn at the Child Saving Institute to
son'her. Neither father nor daughter rec
ognized each other, but the father clasped
the mite of humanity in Ids arms with the
full belief it was Ida offspring.
Mary Is 2 years young. When she was 6
weeks of age her mother died in Pennsyl
vania and her father brought her to
Omaha, left her at his brother's home and
then drifted out Info the tide of humanity,
to return to Omaha a few weeks ago.
During the absence of the father sick
ness and misfortune visited the brother's
home, so that Mary had to be plven to the
Child Having Institute for care. In due
course of time the Institute secured legal
lsscssion of the child, on Ihe ground that
if had been deserted by the father. At the
Instil ule Mary survived a throat affection
and giaw to be a sweet child.
Not long since a wealthy couple living
near Omaha, without children of their own.

plication for adoption. All the love and at
tention that kindness and money could give
were promised for Mary by this wealthy
Mary's father was heartbroken when he
realized the true status of affairs. The
way lie had deserted the child touched lilm
to the quick. He burled his bead In Ids
bands and tlien kissed Mary's cheek. A
tear-drop on the girl's face glistened In the
sunlight whleh played through a window
of Mrs. Edwards' office at the Institute.
The father love was reawakened with ter
"Do you think they will let mo sec Mary

PLAN TO ABOLISH RECEIVERS
Keep Commission Considers Reform in
Government Land Cffiots.
LARGE SAVING CAN BE EFFECTED
Commissioner Hie hards III Present
Derisive Irir In Annnal Hrpnrt
lianae Itrnnlrea Act
(I'lom a Staff Correspondent.)
WASHINGTON, Nov. 1-,. (Special ) The
Keep commission, appointed for the pur
pose of looking l-ito the methods of doing
business in the various executive depart
ments of the government at Washington,
have now under advisement matters re
lailng to the general land office. The coin"
mission has had two sittings und It is said
that ulniost the entire time of the com
mission at each session was given to hear
ing olliclals arid others upon UiH sugges
tion that the business of local land offices
tlirotighntit the country could well be con
ducted by the register alono, dispensing
with the services of the receiver.
To bring about such a "reform" would
require an act of congress amending the
present law, and no matter what the Keep
commission report there need be no great
fear on the part of the receivers for some
time to come that they will lose their Jobs.
It is believed that the forthcoming rc
isrt of Commissioner Klchards will con
tain some decisive views upon the propo
sit'on to abolish the ofllce of receiver.
Commissioner Richards declines to diseUKS
ids views, merely contenting himself with
stating that he had touched upon this sub
ject in his annual report, but until that
report has been authoritatively given to
the public by Secretary Hitchcock his lips
must remain sealed.
There were on July 1, 1906. 110 local land
offices In the I'nltod States, including the
land ofllce ut Juneau, Alaska, each pre
sided over by a register and receiver. With
the exception of Juneau office each register
and receiver receives a salary of fMO per
annum. The salary of land officers at
Juneau is $1,(X)0 und fees not to exceed an
aggregate of $3,000 per annum. Thus ' it
will bo seen that If the business of a, local
land ofllce is good the register and receiver
would each receive an annual income of
If eongrVss should decide to discontlnuo
the services of the receiver at the 110 local
land offices scattered throughout the
I'nited States it would mean a saving to
the government In the salaries alone of
thes officials of W,000 per annum, to say
nothing of fees. As matter of fact, tho
country Is becoming so rapidly settled that
there remains but a comparatively small
area of public lands nvallablc for agricul
tural purposes and the business of a great
majority of the local land offices Is falling
off greatly. It Is therefore contended by
the advocates of retrenchment and reform
that one man, a register, can perform
alone all the necessary duties pertaining
to a hind office.
Quartermaster cieneral'a Heport.
Probably no more Interesting report has
been made by a quartermaster general In
the last decade than the report just Is
sued by Hrigadier General Charles V.
Humphrey to bis superior officer, the
secretary of war. it is particularly Inter
esting, not only to every soldier, hut to
every person who Is concerned with public
affairs and especially to those who have
the best Interests of the army at heart.
Necessarily much of the reiKirt deals with
the dry details of payments for clothing,
boots and shoes, purchase of animals,
erection of buildings, the army transport
service, construction of quartermaster'
steamers. Ice plants, pack trains and a
thousand and ono things Included within
the seois- of the quartermaster general's
department. Hut with these routine mat
ters Quartermaster General Humphrey dis
cusses In his rejiorl questions of great
moment, not only lo the army but trf the
country as well
General Humphrey, In the opinion of
military experts, has brought to his po
sition a larger and more comprehensive
knowledge of his duties than any man who
has been nt the head of the quartermas
ter general's department in twenty years.
He him been associated with all the great
expeditions: against the Indians since the
close of the civil war and In charge of
transportation and quartermaster's sup
plies during the Spanish-American war, the
"Hoxer" troubles In China and taw service
in the Philippines. And when he speaks
upon questions In which the quartermas
ter's department Is interested he speaks
"as one with authority."
Itnlldlnai or I'oal Eiehaiiges.
lately the Women h Christian Temper
ance union has been attacking General
Humphrey upon the failure of the quar
termaster general's department to erect
military post exchanges, which include the
library, reading, lunch and amusement
rooms und gvinnasluin in place of post
canteens, which were by authority of con
gress abandoned In 1!-J. In reply to these
attacks General Humphrey shows In his
report that out of the appropriation of
fj.Sn0.(iO made for the fiscal year 1W6 he has
expended JMM.2i.ii In the erection and pur
chase of buildings to be used for post ex
ih.inges. Since the abandonment of the
post canteen $t,iHH).ii haB been spent for
the purposes of military exchanges, the
buildings have been constructed with a
lew of .meeting Ihe requirements of the
soldiers along Ihe lines which the post
canteen furnished them before Its abandon
ment. To the soldier who has had meritorious
service In the wars the service badge is one
of the exceedingly Interetttlng subjects con
nected with his army record. So many and
varied have been the badges recommended
by congress covering our military history.
I ond so poor has been the workmanship on
some of these badges by reason of the par
simonious acts of i-ongress that many of
the splendid services rendered by men In
trying conditions have gone for naught ao
far as a distinguishing badge goea. Gen
eral Humphrey In speaking of the subject
of merit and campaign badges takes Issue
with congress In calling for bids for their
manufacture. Eroni the nature of these
badges it was desirable that the matter of
quality of metal used, artistic treatment of
the design and beauty and durability of
finish were wholly lost sight of by the
manufacturers bidding, whereas, he con
tends. If the department could have pre.
pared the badge and have it properly made
J without being compelled to call for bids,
much better results would have been se
cured. Medula for Indian War Mervlre.
L rs puBsing strange that congress in
providing campaign badges for late wars
appears to have given no thought to service
other than In the civil war. General
Humphrey in his report on this subject
slates: "A respi ctable number of officers
and possibly ulo borne enlisted men who
would ! entitled to wear such u badge
yet remain in the service and there aie
many retired army officer who would

ONE JOYOUS SUNDAY SERENADE
Klve Servants of nno'a Pleasure I n
dulge In Diverting; Discussion
and Jolly Joshlnu.
A sandhill crane, a turkey gobbler, a
young white pig, mud turtle und oposbuni
formed a cosmopolitan family In the show
window of a local meat market Sunday.
Notwithstanding a few family Juts, this
happy gathering seemed to be thankful
for something and glad they came to Ne
braska. "Fellow citizens." remarked 'the turkey,
ns lie sidestepped a vicious left-hand drive
from the dexter leg of the crane, "before
I dlt next Thursday I want to tell you all
I sprang from a noble fumily; l have nice
folks; I am from the genus melcagils gal
lopavo. Jot It down."
"Simmer down, add up your talk," re
torted tile crane. "You are not dead yet,
old man. Walt until your neck, is ucross
the block and then make your motion for
a new trial. It may not all be true."
"But I tell you I am doomed to die.
There is a price on my head. IJke a
luartr at the stake, 1 must meet my fate
to make the nation a holiday." continued
Mr. Turkey, as he borrowed the pig's hand
kerchief and dried a tear.
"Whut's turkey a pound vtiow?" asked
the mud turtle.
"Ask the man," responded the opossum.
"What's this I hear? What's this I
hear?" queried the little feminine sus.
"That for you:" chimed In the crane.
Gee, golly, Mrs. Pig married only a month
and he bit her ear off."
The facts are the mud turtle did lacerate
the auricular portions of the feminine sus.
"Now don't get strong or I'll jar the
concrete In those tilled teeth of yours, you
sassy thing," rejoined Mrs. Pig.
"Shame on you I was going to say Mr.
Johnson but I mean every one of you.
After all, there are a few things for ns
to bo thankful for." continued the turkey.
"Do tell." said the opossum.
"Well, Chief of Police Donahue has or
dered that no more turkey raffles be held
within tho corporate limits of the city of
Omaha, county of Douglas, and state of
Nebraska. I want to say, however, that
I do not think the constitution of these
United States too sacred an Instrument to
change, which moves me to say that our
lawmakers should enact a law making it
a felony to kill a turkey. The blood of
my ancestors cries out for revenge," re
marked the turkey.
"The whole thing Is a dead open and
shut game with me. T have my Ins and
outs. The crnne, here. Is a high flyer, but
it's me for the cooling waters of the Big
Papplo. My stars! the opossum Is dead
Call the coroner," ejaculated the turtle.
"Miss 'Possum Is not a dead one; that
Is only her way," explained the turkey.
"Let us all turn to hymn No. 4H2 and
sing 'Everyone Works But Father,' " com
manded the crane, as lie straightened out

WIFE BEATERS IN CITY JAIL
Tito Locked 1 p. One After a KIsfM
Tvllh Ihe Officer Who -Arrested
Gus Schell, aiM Arliot- street, and C. S.
Phllbert, ln Pierce, ,are In the city Jail,
both charged with wife beating. In the
case of Schell the abuse was very much
aggravated. Schell's sister said that Mrs.
Si hell left her husband alone last Satur
day to take care of their eight children,
the youngest a baby of 10 months. The
task proved to be too much for Schell's
temper, so yesterday he got drunk and
slapped the woman several times, and
finally knocked her about hrutally and
kicked her. His brother-in-law remon
strated apd Schell flew Into a passion and
loaded a double-barreled shotgun when
they threatened to cull the police. He said
he would shoot the first officer that ap
peared. Ho set the gun In a corner In
readiness. While he wis engaged In quar
reling with th family a little son slipped
in and took the loaded cartridges from
the giin. Officer O'Connor was sent to
look Into the rase. He was warned of
Schell's threat and made a straight dive
for the gun on entering the room. Schell
also tried to get to his really harmless
weapon. A fight ensued between the offirer
and the Irritated husband, which at last
was settled in favor of O'Connor. Schell
wis then sent to the, station, where he was
(barged with wlfe-beatlng and resisting an
Annonneementa of Ihe Theaters.
Wednesday afternoon and evening at the
Boyd theater the old favorite, "Florodora,"
will be sung, for the first time in two sea
sons. The company having It in hand
Is reported to be competent, and the pro
duction up to the mark. The famous sex
tette, the many well known songs and the
oddities of Tweedlcpunch and Gilfaln and
the eccentricities of Ijidy Holyrood are
too well known to require advertisement.
The engagement Is for the one day only.
The Thanksgiving attraction at the Boyd
will be the sterling classic actor, Mr. Louis
James, In two of his best plays, "Ingomar,
the Barbarian," and "Vlrginlus." " Mr.
James Is meeting with great success In
his tour of the country, his company and
scenic equipment being of the best. He

The Plattdeutscher fair opened In all Its
glory at Washington hall Sunday and will
continue for a week. All of the best
German organizations of the state have
united in an effort to raise funds for

Everything was In readiness for the

that the hall was entirely too small to
accommodate the crowd which was on hand
to help the good work along.
The large hull on the third floor Is a
bower of beauty, containing booths pre
sided over by the women ot the different
organizations and containing all sorts of
pretty and useful things which will be
disposed of during the week. The first
1m.mi1 h to catch the eye is the Country
Store. In charge of Mrs. Julius Meyer.
She has taken the precaution to print
her labels in Low Dutch. High Dutch and
Englisli. A union sign tells that union
made goods are kept.
