at tha close nt tha lecture a mala quartet
torn the choir of fH. John's church ef
fectively aan "Xee-rer My Ood to The."
i To theme of tha lecture wss an exposi
tion and thorough explanation of tha na
ture, and object nf the confessional It
la used la tha Roman OathwMr faith. Aa
a premeals to hia arguments supporting
the naoaaaitr for and tha vital function
played by tha tribunal of the confessional
In tha church, rather Bherman delivered
dramatic and resJIstlo presentation of
The story of Mary of Megtfal. t familiar
to Bible students, telling In a thrilling- man
bar of tha yeara of rlntoua living spent by
tba Mnatlalane and of her flnal conversion
at the feet of the Saviour. Thla example
waa given aa an argument In support of
the functions of the confessional and via
then followed by the scriptural lemon
wberatn Cbrlat la reported to have aald
to IDs dlarfplea "Whoaoever's sins yo i for
trlva, they ara forgiven them."
rner Power of Forg-I vrneea.
Father Sherman aald: "By there words
I contend, and I do not believe tha state
ment Is open to etieewful contradiction,
that Christ conveyed tha power of forglve
nee of idn to His apostle, what Christ
Sid then Ha can do now, and by ithat
power delegated to me I can and have
forgiven the sins of thousands and thou
sand, for there can be no doubt that man
can b God's delegate to wipe, sin from
souls now aa well aa In olden times. Con
fession Is needed by the nature of the
case, for axampia that of Mngdalene.
Taking tha premises that we ara the
recipients of snoeollc power, which I will
prove tomorrow rlsrht, I maintain that we
have the right and are subject to tha duty
to Judge of the sins, of the souls committed
to our charge. The confession Is the tri
bunal sanctioned by Christ. nd It acts as
a deterrent trym the commission of wrong
or Immoral acts, aa absolution cannot be
given until restitution Is made by the
wrongdoer. Considered aa an aid to con
science, so It Is thnt Ideals of Christian
virtue ara kept alive by that tribunal
which has proved so enVarlous."
Several questions submitted the previous
evening were answered by Father Rherman
snd proved to be one of the most Interesting
features of the lecture. One of the ques
tions submitted and answered by Father
Sherman waa: "Why do Catholics refrain
from eating meat on Fridays?" Tha lec
turer said that the prohibition of eatintf
meat on Fridays was a test of obedience,
not that meat is not Just as tasteful on
Fridays SS on other flays' of the week.'
Not Necessary to Kneel.
When asked why Catholics kneel when
praying Father Bherman replied: "This 1i
not alwaya the case, as the more Important
prayers are said while standing, but the
attitude of kneeling la an Indication of sub
mission snd adoration, although a prayer
said while standing, sitting or kneellnv
would be Jaet as well In my opinion. It
fact, St. Theresa said tbat prayers should
be aald In the attitude which was the most
eomfortable U the worshlper.'
Sunday night Father Bhernvin will lecture
on the subject, "Why I am a Callioiio,"
and iio duht IU 1 irtd by an Im

A fatal accldtnt occurred at an early
hour Saturday at Kallroad avenue and
Washing'.on streets. William M:Cullough
of Wyoming. Nb, was found lying be
side the fnlon Patlfle railroad tracks cov
ered with dlrst, bleeding from a scalp
wound and fracture of the skull. His
bre.ist was caved In and tha left great toe
was cut off. From appearance McCul
lough was a stockman and either wss rid
ing on a train and fell Off or we standing
on the tracks and was run down by a
train which waa pulling in. He was a fair
sized man of about 30 years. He was
found by some women of the neighborhood
who litppfned lo be crossing the tracks on
their way home. They at once gave the.
alarm and the ambulance, the doctors and
the police responded. McCnllongh was
taken to the South Omaha hospital with
little hope of his recovery. He was at
tended by Drs. pelanne yand Keenlg. Lit
tle could be learned of the man's connec
tions exctpt his sddress. The chief of
police, who viewed the msn sniong the
first, was unable tf discover any other than
symptoms of an accident. The man's be
longings were not molested. The first
rumor spresd on the streets that It ws
a street car accident, but this proved in
correct. Honors far Odd Fellows.

BILBY FAMILY NEEDED HELP
Conditions More Serious Than Father
( Dead Child Wosld
Further inquiry Into the case ot the Bilby
family at Cut Off lake developed tha family
to be more of an object of charity, as re
ported to the police by Mrs. Watklns, 31.
Plnckney street, than the father would ad
mit, to Emergency Officer McCarthy, who
wa sent to Investigate Friday evening.
Walter Bflby, a 7-year-old child, died
Thursday night from diphtheria and the
family wa without mean to give the little
one a funeral. The father appealed to
friends, who donated sufficient amount to
cover the expense.. The mother wa also
taken up by Mr. Plummer, a neighbor,
and by Mra W. R. Adams of the Visiting
Nurse association. Mrs. Adams appealed
to Bralley A Dorrance, undertakers, who
agreed to furnish a coffin. Mr. Plummer
carted the little white casket to the Bl'.by
home and laid out the body herself, saying
as she had tended the sick child and been
exposed to the disease she did not think It
necessary to endanger other. Thua the
family was cared for by friend and stran
gers, although Bilby would not admit all of
tha charities to the police.
The funeral will be held this morning, al
though Leslie ft Mace, who have the
funeral In charge, were Instructed by the
health department that It should be held
yesterday because of the nature of the
disease causring death. Wishing to await
out-of-town relatives, however, the family
held to the original arrangement of holding
the funeral today.

Hkrvdsome Is 8ls Handsome Does
Abraham Lincoln was perhaps the homliest man of his time. But when hi
countrymen discovered his great henrt and brain they loved him, hemlines and all.
The automobile which you expect to carry a big load in fast time across the conti
nent must be and look vastly different from the one in which the lathes make after
noon calls, and by the Fame token it is not the society beauties but their less showy
and altogether more ccom pan ion able sisters who mother real men.
Kidgway's aims at service not beauty. Its army is on the firing line and. not on
dress parade. A soiled - uniform and a stubbly beard inevitably follow forced
marches. Ridgway's deliberately sacrifices appearance to speed. It is edited by
telegraph and printed on swift newspaper presses. It takes four days to make a
form ready on a magazine press. About four minutes minutes, mind you on a
newspaper press. Kidgway's is printed from soft lead; Everybody's from sharp
copper'. Ridgway's is bound to look like the "Old Scratch." We make the sacrifice
deliberately and cheerfully.
Now why? The answer is short. To save time and to save money,.
A magazine press takes four 'days to make ready and turns out eight
thousand in ten hours; a newspaper press takes four minutes to make ready
and turns out eighteen thousand an hour. .The live matter is timelier by
six days because it is run on a newspaper press. The saving of time is
not so great in cities where the editions are smaller. There is a saving of
money in the swift newspaper presses over slow magazine presses. We
are obliged to save money in order to afford the enormous expense
entailed by maintaining special staffs in ell cities and by the extraordinary
expenses of editing by telegraph. But we hope and believe that when we
get into our stride youwUl be glad to make cheerful allowance for our
typographical imperfections for the sake of the timeliness snd vitality of
what we shall be able to give you. ,
We trust you will not be overcritieal of the contents of these early numbers. On
page 47 of the October 13th issue you will find some of our experiences reviewed.
Fourteen carloads of paper to fourteen cities; a big staff recruited; fourteen offices,
to equip; fourteen sets of matrices to get through by express; fourteen cities bring--ing
out fourteen separate editions and the whole accomplished in a little less than
six weeks. Something of an achievement,"if we do say it as shouldn't." Why
didn't we take longer to get ready f We appeal to your experience. The only way
to learn to drive a motor car or to ride a bicycle is to get out into the middle of the
road and get on. It beats shop talk a mile.
