lUv. Byron H. Stauffer preached a r
trlotlo sermon at the First Methodist
church Sunday morning, dealing largely In
statistics and physical comparisons to show
what great and admirable country the
United States la. He advised persons on
tho Fonrth of July to find tl-ne amid the
din of powder to consult a map of the
reptibllo and consider Its magnitude, re
sources and prosperity and the fact that all
over 11 ' surface Independence day was
"After 12B years of development and
settlement we ax feeding the world," said
Dr. Btauffsr. -Notwithstanding what Is said
of tainted produrts. and long after the
scandal of tainted things shall have passed
away and we shall have reforms of things
that ought to be reformed, we will still
feed the world. Oour 760.000,009 bushels of
wheat are almost as much a France, Great
Britain. India and Russia combined pro
duce. There Is no doubt that In time this
part of the universe will be to all the
world the land that flows with milk and
"You love the country If you read Its
history, so splendid alongside that of na
tions like 8paln, guilty 01 years of cruelty
and oppression. I know It Is true, someone
ssld. that If a mnn did not have a few oil
paintings of ancestors to hang around ha
had no business In society. Under this
'definition very few Americans, compara
tively, would qualify. Most Americans are
upstarts a. good kind of upstarts and when
you read what they have done you should
stand up and saluto the grandest flag on
earth, and be proud of the nation of your
With and adoption.
"Let me say to the young men and women
who are present this morning that this Is
till a. land of wonderful opportunities.
There are always men who will say that
opportunity for Individual advancement no
longer exists, but there were men thirty
years ago who pointed at those who had
made fortunes and said It would never hap
pen again. But If you call the roll of
wealthy Americans today you will find
moat of them began poor.
"There are other things than riches for
ambition. There Is a chance for a place
for homes for the worship of Ood, for free
dom and for your children. America Is
atlll the watchword of liberty. If all of us
would contribute our little quota of the
morality of the United States In our private
lives that we wish the national life to
represent, the student 1,000 years hence
would find qualities for unlimited admira
tion In our civilisation. "
GESTXESESS ELEMENT OF POWER
Dr. Jenka Finds Word Oentleroea
Gentleness as an element of power was
tha toplo of the sermon by Rev. E. H.
Jenka at the First Presbyterian church
yesterday morning. He took as his text,
Psalma vlll:35,' "Thy gentleness has made
ma great." In part, he said:
"We have lost the original meaning of
the word gentlemen. In olden times they
were men known for some Inherent great
ness within them, and when the king
truck them with his spear and called them
his own they were called .gentlemen. The
word, gentlemen, ought not to be applied
to those who have nothing to do and who
had a father, but to men who are strong
"t-ook out on nature and you will sae
tha mightiest forces are making no nolsa
(.bout it. They are gentle. God can af
ford to be gentle because of Hia mighty
atrangth. Gentleness Is not weakness; It
la power. I-ook at the man today who Is
blatant and you will find men fear him
for a while, but it Is the gentle, quiet
men that rule the world.
"We are underestimating the quality that
David said made him great. Tf I thought
Christianity mede a man less a man I
would say where is something to make
men strong? Christianity Is not a sign
of weakness, but of strength. Where is
the shield or spear or arrow that made
David great? But he gave us the words.
The Lord Is my shepherd.' and we know
Him aa tha Father of consolation. David
aw these things and he admired them.
Fear does not conquer most men, but what
does conquer him Is an exhibition of the
gentleness of God and Christ Jesus."
DESECRATION OF THE SABBATH
ladlfferrare to Monday Observance
abject of Bishop Hanna.
Rev. Thomaa H. Hanna, D. D., of Mon
mouth, 111., a bishop of the United Presby
terian -church and one of the best known
men of that denomination, preached at the
First United Presbyterian church Sunday
morning. He took for his subject of dis
course the parable of the king's feaat. In
which la told the story of the people who
stayed at their shops and their farm work
Instead of going to a banquet to which
tbey were bidden.
v'"l have known farm era who never could
quit their farm work to attend any sort
Of church service through the week," he
said. "I have known farmers who stay
Byway from divine services on Sunday, be
cause, as they said, the work pressed ro
tiard up to the Sabbath day and they were
Oh, so tired. I have known merohanta to
walk directly past the ohurch on prayer
jesting night to open their stores, though
tbey knew they would not be visited by
customers enough to pay the gaa bill for
tha evening. But tbey knew a gang of
loafers would be there, and they preferred
such company to the prayer meeting.
"Things of worldly pleasure may ba all
right at times, but heaven never meant
thsro to ba the best things for us, aa men
living hero and about to die, about to go
way from our farms and shops forever.
"Tha king destroyed those cities by fire
whose people had refused to come to his
merrymaking, and the act was as kingly
aa tha bidding of them to coma. In respect
to hla authority and out ot regard for tha
safety of bla kingdom ha oould not have

ALLOWANCE A GOOD THING
Concession Ifadfl by Onion Paclflo Etriktt a
WATTLES SPEAKS FOR OMAHA EXCHANGE
ays Action by All Roada Will
Have Tendency to laerease -Talae
ot Grain la
The granting of the elevation allowance
to all elevators which perform the service
at Omahs, Council Bluffs or South Omaha
on grain which comes off Its own lines by
the I'nion Fsclflc has given the situation
a new turn. Heretofore the effect was to
be made to break the contract with the
t'nlon Pacific and the Omaha and Trans
mlssisslppl elevator companies, but the
grain men now seem to be satisfied that
the right thing has been done.
The courls snd the Interstate Commerce
commission hsd decided the Union Pacific
had a right to grant to these concerns an
elevation charge of li cents per hundred
for the benefit of getting Its cars emptied
and returned Immediately. The contract
waa In the nature of an exclusive agree
ment between the railroad company and
the elevator companies and was never pub
lished. The Union Pacific has now come
out In the open and published the rates,
which are open to all who perform ths
service and can return the cars within the
The grain men on the Union Pacific are
more than pleased with the arrangement
and the men who own elevators not on the
Union Psclflc think It the proper thing If
the other rosds will only do the same.
The elevator owners had feared that Stlck
ney's campaign might have the effect of
removing the elevation allowance at Omaha
while It was still paid at other points,
which would be a great discrimination
against this city. Omaha was ssld to have
been the last to be given this allowance
and the dealers feared It would be the first
to haxe It removed.
Wnttlea Thinks It Good Thing;.
G. W. Wattles thinks the publishing of
the allowance Is a great thing for Omaha
and for the farmers as well, for, he says.
It will give those on the Union Pacific
about a cent more per hundred for their
grain. He added:
"In my opinion, tha action of the Union
Pacific railroad In allowing elevation to
all the elevators of Omaha, South Omaha
and Council Bluffs Is worthy of commenda
tion, as It clears up all ground for criticism
against this road of discriminating In
favor of any particular elevators. When
the contract of the Union Pacific was made
with two elevators at Council BlufTs several
years ago these were the only large ele
vators either In Omaha or Council Bluffs.
Since that time numerous other large ele
vators have been erected and In granting
them the same privileges and advantages
aa their contract gives to these two elevat
ors they have taken a consistent position In
favor of the Omaha grain market, which
will be of great assistance to this market
In the future. This act on their part, taken
with the other actions of the managers
of this great railroad In building it eat
terminal shops here and assisting In other
directions In the development of the city,
should be appreciated by all the grain
dealers and business men of Omaha.
"This general allowance of elevation to
all elevators will have a tendency to In
crease the value of all grain raised on the
I'nion Pacific railroad In the state of Ne
braska by about 1 cent a bushel to the

lay Its new line of conduits, I shivered for
the result. The process seemed to Indicate
the dsrnictlon of the beautiful and ser
viceable pavement. But when the conduit
pipe waa laid, the engineering force of the
company showed It knew something about
paving, too. The earth over the conduit
was canrfully tamped, the concrete and
sand base for the paving was restored, and
then the bricks were put . back aa smooth

completed with the cement wash to bind

Grand Army men throughout the coilntrf
will unite In the expieeslon of sincere
grief over the sudden uealh of Mrs. James
ianiier, the wife of Commander-in-Chief
Janits Tanner, which resulted from an
automobile accident at Helena, MonL, Fri
day afternoon. A sad coincidence la con
nected with Mrs. Tanner's death In the
fnct that It was only about, a year ago
that Commander-in-Chief W. W . Blera
niHV died eater a brief Illness at Hotse,
Idaho, while on an Inspection tour through)
the northwestern departments. Commsn-der-ln-Chief
Tanner was on a similar tour
in that same section when the death of
his wile occurred. The death of Mrs. Tan
ner will cast a spell over the approaching
national encampment, as did the death of
Commander Hlackmar a yer ago at the
national encampment at lenver.
It cannot be definitely ascertained lust at
this time whether Mrs. Tanner s body will
pass through Omaha upon Its return td
New York or not. Neither the Union Pa
cific or Burlington know anything of the
possibility of the funeral party coming
through Omsha. Inquiry at the general
passenger cmcea of both roads leads to
the inference that the funeral party may
return east by the Northern Pacific route,
via St. Paul.

Pierce's Favorite Prescription has en

comfort. But it is the women who are

benefits received from the use of " Fa

use makes the baby's advent practically
painless. It has in many cases reduced
days of suffering to a brief few hours.
It has changed the period of anxiety
and struggle into a time of ease and
