Into the situation at a lirt where the
audience, at least the feminine part of It,
had been mmle rather uncomfortable by
the trend of the minister's discourse, lie
had Just said with much feellna;:
The time la coming; when your descend

thousands of feathered songsters on your
Dr. Ijoveland's sermon was on "The
Coming- of the Sons of God." He held that
nature Is Inseparably linked with man
kind; If man Is degraded, nature Is de
graded; every flower that blooms feels the
Mow that strikes down a man. and every
bird that pings and every beast of the
forest feela the downfall of a. race and also
feels the uplift of a race.
"Look at Palestine." aald the speaker.
"Today there Is no roeo on Sharon: no
vine bring; forth their purple clusters aa
they did when Bona of God dwelt there.

the most fertile spot In the worM. What
ruined It? Slavery began to gnaw at the
vitals of the race, and when the Romans
became degraded the rampagne waa
Masted. It sends forth miasma and fever.
Nature suffered in the downfall of man.
Whea Man Rises liri "miles.
"But when man rises, nature smiles. Tho
poor crab apple asks man to make It Into
a golden pippin, and It Is done; there la not
a wild rose but appeals to man to trans
form It Into an American Beauty; not a
piece of crude Iron but calls to man to
make It Into some part of a machine. We
ought not to Juilgp nature by what it is,
but by what. It Is capable of.
"I remember when a boy I read In my
geography of the Great American Desert.
Well, when the Choctaws and Comanches
roamed there It waa a desert, but with the
coming of the sons of God the desert waa
redeeme and now yields abundantly. I
believe there la no desert spot In Arizona
but is waiting for the coming of the sons
of God to transform it.

The necessity ami -efnroey of prayer,

Oliver mission to be held st the Auditorium

on by Rev. Newman Hall Rurdlck, D. D..
In Ills sermon at the Second Presbyterian
church yesterdsy morning.

things It would have and He today wants
his children to pray," said the minister.
"While It Is In God's plan to bring atiout
great things it also is In Hi plan that
the people should pray for those things.
God would have everyone who has ex
pressed allegiance to Him pray for a matti
fentatlon of the Holy Spirit. There Is
plenty of evidence In the Bible and even
In our own time He answers prayers for
a revival. What 'we mean by a revival Is
a manifestation f the Holy Spirit, which
we do not see In Omaha. today. Nothing
would more glorify Omaha -today tban a
rallying of those who have professed the
nsme of Christ. We have encouragement
for this revival because Christ died for a
revival of the world and that the world
mlghf be brought to God.
"If we neglect prayer God will hold us
responsible. Now is the time for prayer
end now is the time for revival. God Is
always willing and ready to answer. To
talk of when God gets ready and thus
shirking responsibility Is sinful. God Is
long-suffering snd not willing that any one
should perish. He will save unto- the utter
most all who come unto Him. God de

serious mistake to plsoe conditions on that
surrender. Now Is the time for all the

SPEED NOT HIGHEST DESIRE
Fast Trains less Hemauded Than
ntsvlftai (iff W9 lliR)
son of Illinois Control.
"I am of the opinion that what the pub
lic relishes more than fast time is trains
being on time," Passenger Traffic Mansgsr
Hanson of the Illinois Central mad said
In discussing the speed crsae. "Adherence
to schedules Is the thing to be aimed at."
he continued. "American strenuosity has
Influenced the rallrosds to reduce the run
ning time of trslns to a point that In
many Instances Is Inconsistent with con
servative and careful management.
"A train keyed to Its best has no chance
to make up time lost on account of the
delays Incident to a trip of even a couple
of hundred miles, consequently time lost
is seldom regained. During the last few
yesrs there has been a feeling on the part
of many railroad men that they must put
fst schedules on time cards even if they
cannot adhere to them. If a road Is not
in physical condition to make forty miles
an hour it would be more to Its advantage
to make thirty-five mllea an hour, as It
finally becomes known that such a road Is
attempting the Impossible and the public
acts accordingly. The average passenger
would prefer to use a trsln of ordinary
speed with the assurance It will srrlve at
Its destination on time. The 'Flyer' muy
look nice on a colored folder, hut when
the passenger comes to understand that
the 'Flyer' flies with one wing broken he
begins to figure ori the road that does not
promise so much, 'but gets there regu
larly. "To Illustrate: Our1 read ha been brought
to such a satisfactory physical condition
that we could operate a train between
Chicago and New Orleans In eighteen
hours. Rut what, would be gained? We
would be doing our utmost under favor
able conditions, if conditions were un
favorable we might be late, which would
cause dissatisfaction.. Under our present
schedule, a reasonable one for 923 miles,
we make the time and our patrons know
Just whst to expect. Ths policy. I be
lieve, will win in the long run and the
public will approve it." .
BLIND TOM. FREEMAN DEAD

at 'the tfme of his' death had considerable
mqney; deposited In the First National

as he 'was able to walk the streets with
out assistance and always attracted con
"Blind Tom" hat two friends who suf
fered a similar affliction: "Blind Billy" nnd
"Blind Harry." The three blind men were
practically InsepsfaW and were well
