On This Theory gnperlntenrient
Davidson Thinks Coigreu Haa
Helped Spelling; Reform.
W. M. Davidson, superintendent of the
Omaha public schools, believes the tide !n
favor of simplified spelling haa rained such
momentum that the expression of the
rational congress against Its adoption will
not suffice to stem that tide; In fact. Su
perintendent DavldHon thinks the action of
congress will tend to accelerate general
Interest In the movement, which Mr.
Davidson personally favors. In tbls con
nection he aayst
"I am not surprised at the action of con
gress, nor am I surprised at the willing
ness of the president to rescind his order
when It appeared that congress was likely
to work itaelf into a high state of ex
citement over a relatively unimportant
question. Congress is composed of a body
of conservative men, who, on all questions
not political, are apt to be governed al
ways by tradition and authority. While I
do not agree In toto with President Roose
velt's and Chancellor Andrews' position,
still I feel that the movement In favor of
simplified spelling la in the right direction
and, la spite of congress, I feel that the
advocates of simplified spelling will ulti
mately win their case before the American
public Indeed, I am not sure that the
dverse action of congress will not tend
2 promote the movement throughout the
country. People will now begin to study
the list of 300 words as they never have
before and will begin to learn, to their
amazement and astonishment, that & very
great majority of the 800 words are al
ready in common, everyday use. The
standard dictionaries of the day are going
o far as to offer the entire list as either
"standardized" or optional forma of spelling.

Douglas street, between Fifteenth and Six

tended to be a place of entertainment for
women and children, but men folks can
find something there that will Interest
them also. Moving pictures villi constitute
the bulk of the entertainment afforded,
but other features will be given, so that
the show will not become monotonous.
One of the strong points is the engage
ment of MJss Courtney, who was so popu
lar at the Bijou last summer, to sing her
Illustrated songs. The performances will

ranged for the convenience and comfort of
the patrons and everything will be done to
make it popular.
J0MPLAINTS NOT JUSTIFIED
City Engineer Says Sontnwest Im
provers Are Not Warranted
City Engineer Rosewater contends that
the complaints of the Southwest Improve
ment club members over alleged Irregulari
ties In the work being done on the pave
ment on Twenty-fourth street from Leav
enworth to Vinton street are unwarranted
in view of the existing conditions. The en
gineer said. In the first place, the work Is
only comparatively being started; and, sec
ondly, the paving will not be accepted by
the city before spring, at which time any
Irregularities which may dlst will be takon
care of In the usual manner. The engineer
pointed to the fact that the estimate on
the work amounted to 147,000, only $2,000 of
that sum having thus . far been paid the
GOD'S PLAN OF SALVATION
Gte Eii f ily Fcsottf-n ton that Ali Who
Is.ievs Lay Ee Saved.
NO EXCEPTIONS To THE OfTER MADE
Rica and Poor, HI a and Low, All
Stand en the Same lvel la the
Eyes of the Creator of
"For God so loved the v-orld that He
gave His only begotten Son, that whosover
belleveth on Him should not perish but
have everlasting life." John 111:18.
From this text, one of the most familiar
In the Bible, Dr. Torrey preached a ser
mon at the Auditorium on Thursday even
ing, and twelve persons responded to the
Imitation and arose at tho close of the
sermon to begin the Christian life.
"Man's salvation begins In God's love
for him and not his love for God," said
Dr. Torrey. "God loved first, as the text
states, and He offered His Son aa a sac
rifice to redeem men from the sins of the
world. And in return for this great love,
man loves God, or should love Him. Man's
love for God is the result . of salvation
and not the cause of it.
"The text says that God loved the world.
He did not love only the rich or only ths
poor. He did not love only the educated
or only the Ignorant, but He loved all of
them. In His sight these worldly condi
tions do not make the least difference.
The poorest or most Ignorant person Is
the same In HI:: eyes aa the richest man
or the most learned.
"There is much meaning contained In
that little word 'so.' God so loved the
world that He gave His son. That little
word tells the degree of the love. He
might have saved man without any atone
ment, but He loved the world so much
that He was unwilling to give a salvation
that didn't cost something.
Where Some Find Fnolt.
"God's love was a holy love. Some
people find fault with the plan of salva
tion and aay that they do not consider it
right that God, a holy first person, should
take the sins of man, an unholy second
person, and lay them on Jesus Christ, an
innocent third person. The Bible does not
say anything of the kind. Jesus Christ
was not a third person, but a first person.
He waa a part of God and God took the
sins and laid them upon Himself. Christ
was not only God, but man aa well.
"The atonement must be considered . as
a whole. If the attribute of God Is taken
from Christ, the atonement will not stand.
If the attribute of man Is taken away, it
will not stand, but when all is taken to
gether, the doctrine of the atonement la
the most glorious, the most sublime, the
most profound philosophy that has ever
been known on earth.
"The love of God is shown by the great
ness of the gift and the greatness of tho
sacrifice which He endured. It waa His
only Bon and God loved His Son far more
than any earthly father ever loved a son.
But He was willing to send Him to earth
to be spit upon, to be reviled, to be beaten,
to be eT.offed at and to be crowned with
thorns and crucified. This He was willing
to do- for the sake of sinful man,
, "The love of God for man is a conquer
ing love. It conquers the desire for worldly
' pleasure, for money and for all the sins
I which the devil holds alluringly before the
I eyes of those who should turn to Christ.
It conquers the hardened spirits of those
who have lived long In sin and brings
them finally to the pathway of life."
It was announced that If the collections
keep up during the' remaining few days of
the mission as well as they have thus far,
all expenses will be met by the time the
mission closes. The meeting Friday will
be the last meeting open to all, both men
and women. There Ill be no meetings

crackers, because they are the one food with which all of
them are familiar.
Uncle Sam has given out figures showinj that soda
crackers are richer in nutrimm and body-building elements,
properly proportioned, than any food made from flour.
This it saying much for common soda crackers, and
much more for UfiGedQ DlSCUlt, because they are
soda crackers of the best quality. They are baked bettei
more scientifically They are packed better more cleanly.
The damp, dust and odor proof package retains all tne good

MATIOMAl BISCUIT COMPANY
GERMANS DISCUSS BUILDING
Plan Given Fwrther Boost Toward
A building for German sode'les la a central
location with main auditorium and club
halls and to cost 1100,000 Is the proposition
made to the meeting of delegates from
nearly all of the German clubs of Omaha
at Washington hall Thursday evening. The
plan was presented by the committee of
seven, headed by F. J. Freltag as chair
man, which was appointed at the meeting
of the delegates a month ago to formulate
a plan to erect a home for the various
organisations in the city.
In detail the Idea as laid before ths
gathering Is to organize and Incorporate
a building society and issue 30,0(0 shares
of atock at $5 a share, to be taken up by
Germans In Omaha. No suggestion aa to
architecture was given, but the understand
ing is to erft a structure with one large
hall, propei iy appointed for important
gatherings, and smsJl'.r rooms for the use
of the clubs represented In the movement.
While the proposition Is meeting with
warm support among a large majority cf
the German clubs. Insuring Its fulfillment
sooner or later, the more conservative of
the delegates are not so sanguine about the
suooeaa of the scheme In the Immediate
future. They believe the stone which has
been set rolling will continue to move, but
that It will be slower In covering the
ground than those leas acquainted with the
exact conditions and obstacles which must
be overcome have any Idea.
The delegates attending Thursday night s
meeting will report to their organisations
and meet again In two weeks to report the
attitude of those they represent. It la
likely many other plans will be proposed
and some time will be required before one
la bit opon which will meet the approval
of alL The executive committee will meet
again next Thursday evening.

Mayor Dahlman favors Council man Fnnk-
houeer's gas commissioner Idea. He said
he understood many other cities have such

In Omaha are such as to make the office
a necessity. There is no Intimation at this
time who would be a likely candidate for
the office, which, when the ordinance goes
through, will be an appointive one by the
mayor. Mr. Funkhouser's Idea Is to secure
