ANDREWS ON IMMORTALITY

BUT THEY ARE STILL MERE BRUTES, HE SAYS

Chancellor E. Benjamin Andrews of the
University of Nebraska preached Sunday
morning at the First Baptist church. Tak
ing for his text, "Judge not according to
appearances, but Judge righteous Judg
ment," he likened the human soul to a
Roman coin burled for centuries and dug
up with a crust of mud, which, when
cleaned and polished, shows the Image of
some Roman emperor, its maker. Thus
the soul, he said, Is sometimes hidden by
the mud of earthly life, but when sweeten
ing, purifying and brightening influences
are set to work ipon It the spiritual gold
In comparing the value of the spiritual
snd the material, as a preliminary to
howlng the reason for the divine Interest
In man, Dr. Andrews quoted from "Gray's
"For who to dumb forget fulness a prey
This pleasing anxious being e'er resigned,
Lett the warm precincts of a cheerful day.
Nor cast one long, lingering look behind."
"This stanza," said Dr. Andrews, "Is
the most beautiful expression 1 have ever
heard of the spontaneous appreciation of
life as It Is. 1 am not like those church
men of old. who said Ufa was a bad thing
and prayed to be released from It as soon
as possible; I feel that life Is good, and It
Is good every day. But, good as this life
in, the spiritual Is to be considered more
than the earthly. The Great Teacher Him
self says spiritual Integrity Is more Im
portant than wealth, more Important than
family, more Important than bodily In
tegrity. He that saves his life shall lose
It. but he that loses his life for Jesus'
sake shall find it.
Man Is Immortal.
"Who are we that God should notice us?
What is In us that makes God think so
much of us? Why this plan of salvation
and why did Jesus die on the cross? One
of the most common answers to this query
Is that man is Immortal; that after gen- j
eratlons and ages and cycles, In number
beyond the expression of the Arabic nota
tlon, he is Just beginning to live Is only
In the morning of life. Now, no less
famous a man than Bishop Butler offered
the speculation, which he was not willing
to deny, that the beasts of the field may
live forever. I, for one, would not say
that the nobler specimens of the brute
creation ars to perish forever when they
die. But a brute. If Immortal, Is yet
mprely a brute.
"Another answer Is that man has the
power to know good and evil. He can be
blissful and can experience woe; he can
be In the heights or In the shady depths;
he, can be Ood's companion or satan's.
tt'lila power to know good from evil Is a
stupendous fact, but everything In the wl3e
universe has it In greater or less degree.
Tou haven't solved the problem, but
merely turned It over on another side.
Why Is It God has given man this power
In greater degree than any brute?
"My friends, the Bible solves the prob
lem. God created man in His own Image.
What God is In His great brains and
sphere, man is In his little brains and
sphere. Whenever God looks down on
earth. He can see His image In His human
children. The earthly father loves his son;
If he says he does not he lies. Do you
suppose the. divine Father loves less than
any earthly parent? He recognises His
children wherever He finds them.
"To lose the soul Is to continue to dim
the divine ImRge In It so long that It dis
appears, until It seems that even God can
not find a trace of Himself. To save the
soul Is to brighten the Imaga of God In
rHlRCII TO DOMINATE THE NATIOJI
(atholle or Methodist Will Some Day
Rale lolled States.
Personal work by church members was
declared to be the great need In the evan
gelization of the world by Rev. J. B. Priest
In his sermon yesterday at the Seward
Street Methodist church. Mr. Friest said
the indications are either the Methodist or
the Cathollo church will some day dominate
the t'nlted States. He said the Methodist
church by its organisation was better able
than other churches to reach the masses of
"One-third of the population of the United
States today la in our cities," he said.
"Fifty years ago only one-thirtieth of the
population was urban. The concentration
of the people In the cities brings to us Im-
portant problems which it is the privilege
of the church to engage.
"Personal work is necessary now more
than ever before. The new conditions that
confront us must be met by aggressive,
personal, heart to heart work by the mem
bership of the church if we hope to suc
ceed. Our church is charged with the re
sponsibility for one-fourth of the people of
the country. We have now perhaps one
man In forty In our membership. It re
quires heroto faith to face these problems.
"It is wrong to wrap the robes of self
righteousness about ua and refuse to as
sociate with our non-Christian neighbors.
No man has a right to call himself a Chrls
tlon and claim to be a follower of Christ
who will not follow in His footsteps and
work for all men. Too many people are
playing at religion. One woman said to
me: 1 never used a gome of cards but
once to try to get a man converted.' Thlok
of It, using a game of cards to bring a man
. Into fellowship with God. Too many people,
I say. are playing at religion. What they
need is the word of God. One hour's work
now is worth a year's work ten years from
now. If we are to do our part In the
evangelisation of the - world the members
of the church must do their part. The
pastor cannot come In contact with every
body. Men must take their religion Into
their homes and into their places of busi
ness and talk with people about their
PAITH THE CHRISTIAN'S ANCHOR
Necessity of Belief 1st God Emphasised
by Rev. M. V. Hlgbeo.
"Life by Faith" was the subject of Rev.
M. V. Illgbee's discourse at Knox Presby
terian church Sunday morning. His test
was "The just snail live by taitn."
"Justice and righteousness are something
by whloh ws are enabled to exercise faith,"
said Rv. Mr. Hlgbee. "The great eaaentlaj
is to begin right, and that is to be good.
This is the one great requirement of the
righteous Ufa. Those who believe In God
through Christ shall live as do Abraham
and Christ. Faith is the food to the weakly
and gives strength to the spirit and In God's
faith Is life. The most of life is to live in
the favor of God. God said of ChrUt
Thla Is. My' beloved Son.' and 'Whosoever
belleveth on Ms through Htm shall have
everlasting Ufa Nothing is so offending to
God as the want of faith and nothing Is
so pleasing to Him as the fullness of faith.
Some delude themselves with the thought
that there is another way to life than
through faith. The publican said to Christ,
'Have I not given to the poor? But hs
lacked the fullness of faith. The faith of
the hum Id sat penitent when h asked God
to be merciful to him a sinner was the
essence of true faith snd from It came the
(rift of eternal life. The only true way to
eternal life Is through faith In Jesus Christ.
It Is the condition that we cannot get away
from. Christ was the 'Just One." 'I am He
that llveth,' he said, and faith in Him Is
the great requisite to eternal life. It mat
ters not how good you msy have been In
your own conceit so long as you have not
faith. Christ came to aid men's souls to
be saved and to be approved of Almighty

Rev. Dr. Herrlasr on the Promise of
"The whole realm and range of the
church of Jesus Christ" was the topic of
the Sunday evening discourse of Rev. II.
C. Herring at the First Congregational
church. He said:
"We have the Bible handed down from
centuries gone by, the hymnal with the
music of ages, the buildings built as
places of worship for all people and we
have freedom of thought to do what wa
wish with these possessions. We came
by these by the travel and labor and pa
tience and suffering of long generations
gone before. Out of the great past came
the legacy of spiritual riches and most of
us have the sense to take these and not
to throw them away.
"Little groups found themselves ar
tayed against the whole Roman empire.
These men braced themselves to defy the
whole power of Rome and to make these
possessions for future generations. After
the legacy was saved It became necessary
for men to set It free. Someone had to
break the fetters, but It was at an awful
"Men had to learn how to Incorporate
the principles set out by Jesus Christ into
every-day life. The United States la a
Christian country and yet it Is possible
for a great Injustice to be done against
the community. We have seen signs of
a good administration coming and I hope
it will be brought about. The church of
Christ has been very conservative and
has stoned those who would lead it to a
better life. So the riches we have today

COLONEL "JIATH00TED DOWN
Dahlman Attempts to Make Speech
at Ball Park and Gets
"Skldool" "Play ball!" "Twenty-three!"
These popular expressions, intermingled
with catcalls, hisses and yells, was the
response given to "Jim" Dahlman, demo
cratic nominee for mayor, by the fans when
he undertook yesterday to make a political
speech during the progress of the game
of ball at the Vinton street park.
"I am Jim Dahlman, the next mayor of
Omaha. I have come here today to tell
you that I am in favor of Sunday base ball,
believing the common people have a right
to go and see a game on Sunday If they
want to. Mr. Benson"
Thus beglnneth and endeth the speech of
"Jim." He had paraded back and forth
from the players' bench of the Omaha team
to that of the Ijee-Glass-Andreesen Origi
nals several times, and finally he walked
out toward the diamond. The fans thought
he was going to umpire the rest of the
game, except that he wore a Prince Albert
coat, seldom worn by umpires even on
Sunday. He turned and faced the grand
stand and was annoyed only by a low
murmur of displeasure until he got to the
name "Benson." Then the "ovation" arose
to such volume that "Jim" had to take his
seat. He attempted to stand down the
crowd and waved his hands for peace, but
as an eminent statesman once said, "There
(lis) was no peace." The crowd yelled loud
and long for Benson.
Fans generally expressed their utter dis
approval of Dnhlman's effort, and Dahlman
himself is understood to have been dissatis
fied with the success of his undertaking.

MANSLAUGHTER FOR NOONAN
Conriction is Beached by Jury After
Twenty-One Honrs' Deliberation.
LLNIENCY IS STRONGLY RECOMMENDED
JnHse Sutton This Morning; Takes
Ip Contempt Case Against At
Keenan for Interfering;
After deliberating twenty-one hours the
Jury lefore which Frank Noonan was tried
on the charge of murdering Charles Carlson
brought In a verdict of guilty of man
slaughter, "with a very strong. recommen
dation of leniency." The penalty under the
verdict may be from one to ten years In
The case was given to the Jury at 9:30
Saturday night and the agreement was
reached at 6:39 Sunday night, just as the
Jurors were about to start for supper.
Judge Sutton was summoned from South
Omaha and the verdict read ahortly after
7 o'clock. It Is said the difficulty In arriv
ing at a verdict was due entirely to inabil
ity to decide on the degree of the crime.
In discharging the Jurors Judge Sutton
said he desired to thank them especially
as they had had a hard and laborious case
to try. The Jury was kept locked up five
days, an entire day of which no session of
court could be held owing to the absence
of William Hughes, an important witness
for the state. On this day they hired a
hack and took a picnic excursion to Fort
Yesterday the Jurors had a smallpox scare
and for a time they were afraid they would
be quarantined and kept in custody for two
or three weeks longer. One of the Jurors
had a breaking out that looked suspiciously
like the dread disease and the other mem
bers were not satisfied until a physician
was called. He pronounced It a harmless
rash, greatly to the relief of the Jurors and
the two bailiffs.
Noonan is charged with killing Charles
Carlson at L street and Boulevard, South
Omaha, December 30. The state claims the
motive was 111-feellng due to the fact that
Carlson had taken Noonan's Job away from
him and owed Noonan some money. Noo
nan claimed Carlson attacked him with a
knife and In the struggle cut himself In
the temple with his own knife. There wag
testimony supporting both theories.
This morning Judge Sutton will take up
the contempt case against Al Keenan, who
Is charged with attempting to keep his
father-in-law, William Hughes, from testi
fying by wiring him at Lakeside to refuse
to come to Omaha with a deputy who was
sent after him. Hughes has been subpoe
naed to appear as a witness and it is un
derstood Keenan will plead not guilty.

CANNING CENTER MOVING
Great Development of the Basinets in the
EASTERN STATES LOSING THEIR GRIP
Tomatoes the Favorite Among Caaneil
Goods Demand Increases Faster
Than tho Supply The
Following the shifting of the center of
population and money supply from the
east to the west the canning Industry,
which each year preserves and distributes
throughout the world millions of cans of
vegetables and fruits, has broken away
from a strong eastern centralisation and
settled In the states easily accessible to
Chicago. Within the last five years a new
complexion has been given the packing
business, and, to keep up with the indus
trial evolution, eastern packers have been
forced to move westward or see their
trade go into other hands.
Chicago has come to the fore as the dis
tributing point of the country.
. Great grocery Jobbing concerns in Chi
cago, which do millions of dollars worth of
business a year, find that from IS to 33
per cent of their trade is In canned goods.
West's Vegetable Business Immense.
Especially In the production of canned
peas, corn and tomatoes has there been a
big change In the standing of the states.
New York, Maryland, New Jersey, Dela
ware and other eastern states have seen
their business decrease and come to In
diana, Wisconsin, Ohio, Illinois, Iowa, Ne
braska and other western states. Indiana
especially has come to the front in recent
years. With Wisconsin, Indiana has taken
a great portion of the canned pea produc
tion from Maryland and New York.
Indiana, Illinois and Iowa now lead the
list in the production of canned corn, but
in the production of canned tomatoes In
diana, among the western states, has had
a most notable rise.
Maryland, Delaware and New Jersey are
losing their tomato output nd Indiana Is
gaining almost in proportion, although
Ohio Is sharing the benefit. Illinois' prairie
land has been found poor for the produc
tion of tomatoes In commercial quantities,
but the cleared forest land of Indiana has
proved especially fitted to their culture.
Consequently tomato canning plants have
grown up like mushrooms in the Indiana
Land and Freight Rates a Reason.
New York and other eastern men inter
ested In the Industry have made searching
inquiry Into the conditions which are
bringing to the west what promises to de
velop in a few years Into one of Its richest
assets. First of all, they have discovered
that rich western land Is more suited to
the production of tomatoes than worn
lands of eastern states, which require great
expenditure for fertiliser. Added to this,
western farmers have been educated to
the point where they are willing to give
up part of their large field crops for the
more careful growing of tomatoes, which
bring greater returns.
Then, too, freight rates have had their
effect For a long time eastern canners
labored under strained conditions. The cen
ter of demand for their goods kept going
gradually westward, necessitating the pay
ment of long haul tariffs. Factories are
now readjusting themselves to conditions
of population and avoid high freight rates
by abandoning eastern plants and rebuild
ing In western locations.
Build New Plants in tho West.
Several hundred new plants have grown
up in the west In the last few years. During
the packing season of 1905 alone eight
factories in Delaware, ninety-five in Mary
land and several more in New York, which
operated In J904, closed their doors and did
no packing. When the next season for
packing begins In the latter part of Au
gust or September, It Is thought by western
packers that several more eastern plants
will have located In the west
According to figures compiled by New
York experts, the taste of American people,
for the acetlo qualities of the tomato has
Increased to proportions never measured
for it. Indeed, the appetite of the country
for the Juicy red vegetable has grown so
large that there Is doubt If the supply now
In the market will hold out until a new
pack Is made late In the summer.
Explain Shortage of Tomatoes.
During 1902, 1903 and 1904 there was an av
erage annual pack of 231,913,728 cans of
tomatoes, but during 1906, because of bad
weather conditions and a shortage of the
crop, the pack was only 144,000,000 cans, or
88,000,000 cans below the average.
Eastern experts who are apprehensive
about the supply have estimated from the
consumption In the last three years that
the average American family uses fifteen
cans of tomatoes a year. This year the
scaling off of the supply has reduced the
possible apportionment to nine and one
halt cans a family.
Between the seasons of 1901 and 1903 them
was a somewhat similar shortage when the
price ot the vegetable went up and Jobbers
were forced to pay 31.60 a dosen. This de
gree of stringency has not been reached
yet this year, however, for the price at
present Is only II. IB to 31.30 a dosen cans.
As the season gets older a repetition of the
rise in prices which occurred in 1902 is
Buys Tomatoes for Soldiers.
During the Spanish-American war the na
tional government learned through the med
ical men In the army service the peculiar
medicinal qualities of the tomato which
caused soldiers to prefer it over other
canned vegetables. Since that time the
commissary department has been supplying
larger quantities than ever before to array
posts, and the government has become one
of the largest purchasers In the market.
Several carloads are distributed to soldiers
near Chicago monthly.
Following is a table showing the total
pack of the current year, In comparison
with the output of the nine previous years:
Cases of Two
Dosen Tins Each.
Total for ten years
Demand Growa Despite Supply.
These 06,320,905 cases mean a total con
sumption In the United States of more than
1,500,000,000 cans In ten years quite a large
meal. When the almost Inestimable quan
tity of tomatoes preserved by the American
housewife Is considered, in addition, the
grand total of preserved tomatoes runs be
yond all calculation.
Each year the consumption is increasing
and each year hereafter the west, instead of
east, will furnish the greater portion of
the country's meals of canned tomatoes.

There ere good and substantial reasons
erhr Intelligent people ami physician as
we!,, employ Dr. Pierce's Favorite lre
scrlptlon for the cure of diseases and
weakness peculiar to women.
. In the first place. It Is not a rnre-all,
serving only a singleness of purpose,
being a aprotyln for one class of diseases
only those pocnllar weaknesses and
maladies Incident to women. Besides It
Is the only medicine put up (or sain
through druggists for the cure of such
maladies, all the Ingredients of which
have the endorsement of leading medical
practitioner and writers, as being tho
very best known remedies for the ail
ments for which "Favorite Prescription"
Is advised. All this will be learned to the
reader's full satisfaction by perusing a
booklet of extracts compiled by loctor
Pierce from standard authorities of the
several schools of practice, and which
will be sent fnr. to any address on request
for same, mailed to Dr. R. V. Pierce,
Buffalo. N. Y.
Inthe second place. Dr. Pierce's Favor
ite Presclptiou Is the only medicine for
woman's peculiar weaknesses and affec
tions, all the Ingredients of which are
' printed upon the bottle wrapper in plain
English, mi tbat all who lake it may
know exactly what they are using.
A further reason for t he unprecedented
popularity of the " Favorite Inscrip
tion "of Dr. Pierce for the special uso of
women. Is to be found in the fact that
it contains not a drop of alcohol
pure, triple-rolined glycerine, of proper
strength, being used instead, Imth for
extracting and preserving tho medicinal
principles extracted from such roots
of native, medicinal, forest plants as
are employed In Its make-up. Tho
rrlnted formula will also bear witness
hat It contains no narcotics or other
harmful or habit-forming drugs, being
entirely made up of glyceric extracts of
native, American plants of marvelous
.efficacy In the cure of the diseases pecu
liar to women.
Now, in this connection, It Is well to
bear In mind. that, curious as It may
seem, yet it Is a fact that Dr. Pierce's
Favorfm Prescription Is tho only medi
cine for the euro of women's peculiar
weaknesses and maladies that noes not
contain alcohol and that too in Imve
quant.Ulr. This fact can be easily
proven: and vet It Is a fact well known to
all the best physicians that alcohol, even
In small Quantities, when long continued
' Is very harmful, and expeiially so to
terwe, tnwuw, Vfrvoiu vomen. While
the effect of spirituous wines and liquors,
sold under various enticing names may
at first be to exhilarate, braco-up and
unduly support the system for a brief
time, yel a reaction comes sooner or later
and the patient Is worse off then before.
Besides, a craving for alcoholic stimu
lants has gradually fastened Itself upon
the poor, deluded, suffering woman a
malady generally more to be dreaded
than tne original affliction.
Furthermore, Dr. Pierce's Favorite Pre
scription has a record of cures extend
ing over a period exceeding one-third of
a century and embracing more genuine
cases of full and complete recovery than
any other medicine In its line can boast
of. Thousands have been saved from the
operating table and the surgeon's knife
by the use of this marvelously efficacious
specific for woman's ailments. Other
thousands have escaped the disagreeable
ordeal of the doctors' questionings, and
offensive examinations by taking this
remedy and being cured In the privacy
ot their homos. It has cured thousands
of bad, obstinate rases In which doctors
had failed and In which cores wore
thought to be Impossible.
What It has done for others it will no
doubt, do for rou, if similarly afflicted,
and you give 11 a good, fair and faithful
Ia favor of Dr. Pierce's Favorite Pre
scription being regarded away above the
