the Christian colleges, the small colleges,

Pastor of Koontic Memorial Observes
Second Year of Work.
The second anniversary sermon of Rev.
J. K. Hummon, pastor of Kountio Me
morial Lutheran church, Sunday morning
hps delivered to a very large audience
from the words, "l'pon this rock I will
build my church and the gatos of hell Bhall
not prevail against It."
"Two years ago today," be said, "I spoke
on 'Anxiety for the Church,' and I re
call my feelings, thrilled with Joy mingled
with fear and wrought with a sense of re
sponsibility. I called your attention to
the grave dangers threatening the very
existence of this mighty Institution of
God, the fslia conception of faith, errors
n doctrine becoming so prevalent; the
battle of the supernatural, the tendency
among church people to cxnlt the social
Idea above the spiritual, the pronenrss
to run the church on club lines and ac
cording to the ways of the world; fhe
Importance of sound doctrine, of propa
gating a correct faith and carrying for
ward the specific work, the fulfillment of
the church's Ood-glven mission.
"We have worked with perfect peace
and continual harmony and. In the main,
effectively; had pleasure in the growth of
numbers, despite the strong difficulties
surrounding us an evidence of Qod's lead
ership. Division is the work of the devil.
Any disturbance which mars and destroys
power and progress-In the church Is born
and engendered In the depths of hell.
There Is no factional strife In our bounds.
Our advantages of situation, the equip
ment of a modern church building, the
magnitude of our opportunity, In the very
center of a great western city, augurs a
most prosperous and successful future.
"Ard now what constitutes a true
church? What is Its specific work? We
must not have extreme liberalism; often
the true character of the church is hidden
under the quicksands of mere fancy or
foolish sentinientallsm. There sre but two
ways to travel In life's pilgrimage: 1 lie
broad and narrow way. But two thtiias
to believe: The right and the wrong. 1
am a C'hrtstlnn by the graco of God. I
know I am saved today for my sins have
been forgiven. I am also a church man.
I am a Lutheran Christian. I believe
every true Lutheran Is a Christian, but
not that every true Chrustlan Is neces
sarily a Lutheran. The sweet charities
of the Christian religion are wrapped up In
no one particular denomination.
"The mission of the church Is do the
will of the Father In Heaven: to tell the
world of the power fo salvation through

"I'vi m.iimI reminiscences ul the building

the old building, on which the work of de

W. H. l(iissell, who became a memlier of
the board of directors soon after the erec
tion of the present building, presided at
the meeting. For a few years after lsyu, he
said, the association passed the darkest
years of Its history, and though very few
persons ever realized It, the association was
for a long time In Imminent peril of losing
the building. People were not Interested In
the organization as they are now, and they
cheerfully and promptly turned down re
quests for pecuniary aid.
William Fleming, one of the most ear
nest workers of the early days, paid a warm
tribute to P. C. Hlmrbaugh. former presi
dent of the association, who gave tlli.noo to
the present building, or about one-tenth
Its cost. He said:
Proved to Be Wise Move,
"In Ml Mr. Ilimebaiigh, for the associa

for the ground on which the present build
ing stands. He was criticised at the time
and .vfe'iward for paying so much, for the
offer was accepted, but time has proven
his wisdom and foresight. Before the deed
was signed the association could have sold
the site at an advance of $15,(1)0, whiln a
year ago the property, which cost with
the building approximately IllS.nflO. was
sold for $''oo,(in, and we had the use of t

Mr. Sonnenscheln glanced at the drawing
room and sleeping car charts, noticed that
only one drawing room and two upper
berths remained unsold. WHiited the draw

Drawing himself up to his full height,
Mr. Sonnenscheln addressed the clerk in
tones which knocked the major off his pins.
"I am a colonel, here are my transpor

drawing room. Besides. I am next In line,''
said Mr. Sonnenscheln in the clerk.
While the clerk made out the drawing
room ticket the major glared at "l'l i"."l"
Sonnenscheln. who returned the glare with
! a little smile of self-satisfaction born of
having outwitted a buttlnsky major. When

of the upper berths, although he wanted
the drawing room. On the train Into Omaha
the major and colonel did not speak as
they passed by. The major looked several
times as If he wanted to bite the colonel.

CLUE FROM WIFE OF THE DEAD MAN
Henry Brown's wldnir, When Told of
Murder, Recalled Host be Heard
William Hartee Mil at
Fur Hie second time this year In Omaha
a song betrayed a murderer to the polico
when, within four hours after Henry
Brown was stab1ed to death by William
Bartce ul a North Eleventh street, the
latter was placed under arrest by Sergeant
Vanous, Detectives Mitchell and Davis and
Officer Sandstroin at the home of Henry
Coffey, 1J19 Cuss street, at 4 o'clock yester
Conmcted wltii the capture of Brown's
murderer there was need of considerable
detect ivo work, and In placing the man
behind the bars In so short a time the po
lice of Omaha have added another clever
deed to their credit.
Both of the men were colored. They went
to the home of Gewrge Duncan. ZDo North
Eleventh street, at 11 o'clock Saturday
evening. Hartee was a stranger to tho
rest of the company, which was composed
of a number of colored men and women.
A can of beer was sent for and drank.
Brown and his friend. Bartce. seemed to
have a bone to pick between themselves,
and a heated quarrel began when It was
proposed that Brown get another can of
beer, which he refused to do. Before this
Bartee Is said to have Induced Brown to
give him his knife, und when, still fight
ing and quarreling, the men were forced
out of the room and down the rear stair
way. It Is supposed to have been this knife
with which Brown had been cut. when he
staggered back tip the stairs nnd showed
his wounds. Within a few moments Brown
Dnncnn Notified Police.
Duncan notified the police. When they
arrived Bartee was Tiowhere to bo seen
and none of the witnesses could say what
his name was nor where be lived. They
had never seen him before. The police,
therrfore, had little to work upon. but.
knowing Brown worked nnd had a family
in South Omaha. Ca;italn Dunn sent De
tective Mitchell, accompanied by Duncan,
to South Omaha to find out what they
could. The wind was cold and blowing
hard nnd the two had nothing but an open
buggy to make the trip In, but they wasted
no time in getting to South Omaha, where
they were Joined by Captain. Rlnqulst.
They made a tour of lodging houses with
out success and then went to the home of
There was but one clue by which they
could enable Mrs. Brown to Identify the
man who was with her husband and that
was a song which Bartee had tried to
teach the children while at Duncan s home
that evening. It was only a little lullaby,
which he said he had taught Brown s chil
dren, and as soon as this was told to the
bereaved woman she . emembered Fair
child, or Bartee, both ot which names he
carried. She also told that he lived at,
the home of William Coffey, In Omaha.
Cntcb Him Asleep.
Mitchell immediately returned to Omaha
I ana. witn the aid of the other officers, sur
rounded Coffey's house and found Bartee
asleep upstairs. He offered no resistance,
j He did not deny stabbing Brown, but maln
i tained he did It In self defense. He has
j been known by several names Falrchlld,
j Davis and Hobo Mike besides Bartee. The
police have information that Bartee killed
' a man in Tftxas last year, and Duncan
! said there w-as reference to some crime
' in the quarrel between the two men. When
j questioned on that matter yesterday he
i would neither affirm nor deny it. The In
: quest over Brown's body probably will be
j held this afternoon, although Coroner
Bralley had not been able to make the ar
I rangements last night.
The other instance when a song betrayed
I a murderer was that of John Doyle, who
! killed John Kelly last month. In the de
, scrlptlon of his assailant, Kelly said that
1 when drunk ho was apt to sing the Irish
' melody, "Sklbbereen," and It was hearing
; the strains of that ditty floating out from
a saloon door In South Omaha that caused
I Officer Morton to step In and place the
