' The lamentable nroneness of th mmu
of unsaved persons In carplpwiljr neglecting
opportunities fr salvation through the ac
ceptance of Jesus Christ wa the subject
of the discourse of Dr. Torrey at the Audi
torium Friday, the theme being taken
from Hebrew 11:3. "How shall we escape
when we Deflect so great salvation?" After
an address whlrh win distinguished by
flights of oratory and subtle appeal to tha
reason, as well as to the plon of the
(treat audience, an even fifty persona rose
and acknowledged Christ, while other con
versions Were obtained at the close of the
meeting through the Instrumentality of the
personal workers.' committee.
Probably the largest audience that has
heen In attendance at any one meeting
during the progress of the mission was
present last night, many being brought by
the fact that It was tlia last meeting for
men and women. There will be no meeting
Saturday night, while the men and women
will be addressed at separate meetings next
Sunday, the last day of the mission. About
1800 persona were present last night not
Including the choir, which waa so large
that a number were seated In the balconies.

After the Invocation by Rev. Mr. Jacoby
an appeal for large contributions was
mad a, 'as a deficit of $1,150 still exlsta In
the treasury. The expenses of tha mission
will be about $7,000. Isaao W. Carpenter, who
was soliciting the subscriptions, made an
appeal for $5 donations, and requested all
those so disposed would please arise. This
action 'was taken without the sanction of
Dr. Torre y and was distinctly without his
approval, as the plan waa quickly brought
to a close when Dr. Torrey Interrupted the
speaker and said:
"I must object to this proceeding, as It
has always been stipulated by me In pre
vious cases that nothing of the sort should
be done. I wouldn't hold a meeting where
It was done." k
The objection was taken In good part and
after the collection of the contribution and
prayer Dr. Torrey said:

Ever woman that evex went to Venice
haa fed the pigeons in the square In fmnt

the same thing. Put very few of the"
tourists know that the doves of St. Mark's
ran boost of ancestry reaching In an un
broken line ti the f.imoua rarrler rinvoa
if the thirteenth century, which Henry
Pandola sent back to Venice with news
of his victories.
The old chronicles tell how at this crisis
the government declared the birds from
that time forth, throughout all the ages,
blessed, and as such to be forever after
held In reverence and maintained at public
expense. When Dnndoln himself came back
he set apart Palm Sunday .following his
return as the day of appropriate blessing
nnd ovation to the carrier doves.
Where today the four massive bronie
horses paw the air above the went entrance
to St. Mark's the principal ceremony of the
day took place; the liberation of large num.
bera of pigeons. A little roll of paper tied
to one foot of each bird caused it to make
uncertain flight, nnd In the majority of
cases to fall to the ground. These pigeons,
thua readily caught by onlookers, were kept
by them for Enster Sunday, when, by ordr
of the government, the owners made them

Its name having been thus directly sought
by the birds, they were from that moment
to be dedicated to St. Mark.
The pigeons of St. Mark having, with all
due ceremony, been pronounced sacred nnd
under direct protection of tho tutelary
saint of Venice, the government thereupon
placed them under the more practical
earthly care of the superintendent of corn
stores, who was solemnly Instructed to feed
the birds at the city's expense every morn
ing in the great Plnxsa.
This practice was kept up until the troub
lous times of 1797, when the poor birds had
a sorry time of It, feeding where and when

Why
Take
Business Home?
Are Your Nerve Constantly Strained
With Groundless Worries?
The cause of this tense condition Is
In your stomach. Your food does not digest
properly. Nine-tenths of all dyspepsia and
Indigestion Is of the nervous type and the
only certain cure to to right the cause.
Tonics, brain foods, bitters, etc., are mer
Uinporary stimulants. Your stomach and
never would have been ordered If the pub
lic "had been a little more generous with
Its tips."
Here Is a phase of the strike problem
that must be tak: Into account. For If
the public can prevent aftrike of chauf
feurs by agreeing to take upon Itself the
payment of handsome wages, the same ef
fective measures can be employed when
ever cab drivers, waiters, hotel employes,
railway servants and others associated
with public service are dissatisfied with
the scale of remuneration. And If all
strikes can be avoided by a willingness on
the part of the public to make up In tips
and fees what Is lacking In the pay en
velope at the end of the week or month,
what more philanthropic means could be
adopted for the preservation of peace and
' contentment?
As the officers of the New York Trans
portation company have hot voiced an opin
ion In the matter. It Is Impossible to say
Just how far they think the public uhould
contribute to Just wages and harmony.
Some corporations are philanthropic and
The Hlihlnnd Park Improvement club
held a well attended and Interesting meet
ing Thursday evening at tho Lincoln school,
and the various departments of the city
government received considerable atten
tion. Mayor Hoctor suggested that some of the
department allowance should be by mills
Instead of the present budget system of
Just so many dollars, so that the funds
would receive the benefit of Increased val
uation, especially so with the street rep.lr
department.
The sewer question waa considered; also
the building of the F street vlnduct, and
an effort will again be made to Induce the
city council to create the office of city
electrician and meter-Inspector.
The main feature of the evening was
the discussion of the question of annexa
tion. William J. Brennan stated he wanted
the question submitted to a vote of the
people of South Omaha and would abide
by the results, although he thought South
Omaha was doing well as It was.
A. M. Gallagher said. If he could be
assured that the commercial property and
Industrial Interests demanded grenter
Omaha, he would not object: but he thought
that If the Injunction procurors could be
silenced nnd the city enrry out tue Im
provements as voted by the people that
agitation for annexation might stop and the
twin sisters would grow Just the same.
He was doubtfuf of this being accom
plished. W. W. Fisher spoke from a merchants'
standpoint and Bald In substance, that con
sol'dntlon of the two cities mould give a
great Impetus to all great Industries to
locate here, as this Is the natural manu
facturing center; Improvement would be
much grenter as all would work together.
Now. miny are constantly opposing and
the strife has kept some concerns In doubt
as to the proflt of locating here. Mer
chants would prosper because of the In
crease of Industries. This would mean an
Increase In homes, which would constantly
keep up the Influence for better Improve
ments. Al Powell was for Greater Omaha aa
soon as possible. He stated the live stock
business haa suffered for many years and
lost valuable territory because of the lack
of unity In getting better rates. It the In
terests of Omaha were Joined with ours,
we would soon have as favored rates as
any live stock market on the Ml"ourl
river. As It Is, we are discriminated
agalnstby the railroads, nnd other points
are getting the live stock that by rights
belong here, but if the Grain exchange, the
Jobbers, or the Commercial club of Omaha
were all assisting, the railroads would soon
give the rightful concessions, which would
mean many more manufacturing Industries
established along the lines, from the grain
elevators north, below Swift's on the south,
where there Is ample room for trackage
facilities.
J. 8am Gosney stated he would picture
the same results from annexation for this
rlty as appeared In the Town of Lake, now
In Chicago, where the stock yards are
located, and which la really the booming
center of the great city.
Mayor Hoctor said, 'he would content
himself that he always has been and would
be apposed to annexation; but holding the
office of mayor, his vlewa mlght-be mis
construed. Tv J. O'Nell was entirely opposed, as he
thought the real estate values might aufTer
and taxes would not be decreased, which
really means the welfare of any city. He
said taxes are less and the bonded indebted'
pess slight compared with Omaha.
A. H. Murdock. from a professional stand
point waa opposed, as it would practically
annihilate the legal fraternity In South
Omaha and work many discomforts, he
believed, to citizens not now anticipated.
The club will take up this discussion
again at the next meeting.

THE WEIGHT OF A CROWD
Necessity of Providing for the Danger
of Overcrowding; a
Building.
In designing structures of all kinds to be
used as audience rooms or points of van
tage for sightseers, the engineer Is con
fronted by the necessity of providing for
the danger of overcrowding, since, as haa
often been demonstrated, and not without
serious disaster, human beings show no
more discretion In this mutter than do
sheep or cattle. The custom usually fol
lowed by the construction engineers 1
to provide for a weight of eighty pounds
to the square foot, and to allow twenty
pounds addltionul for the always possible
emergency of crowding.
Experiments have recently been made In
the Interest of public safety whleh show
that the latter provision Is not sufficient
to Insure against disaster from overcrowd
ing. In one of these fifty-eight laborers of
an average weight of 146 pounds were
p.-vjked together within a space of fifty
seven square feet. And this figure I by
no means the limit. I-wls Johnson, pro
feasor of engineering at Harvard, has
shown this aa the result of exhaustive ex
periments with men selected from among
hla engineering pupils at the university.
It 1 held that there are many occasions
when conditions anulagoua to those under
which these tests were made prevail, such
as crushes at tha entrance of theaters,
massed sightseers viewing a spectacular
procession and on platforms of railway
stations, especially In the early morning
or evening. It I evident, therefore, from
Prof. Johnson Investigation, that a
weight of say ltd pounds a square foot I
quit feasible and not unusual where there
are throngs of people, while a load of
eighty pounds a square foot Is quite com
mon In buildings and private houses where
social gathering are frequent. Portland

them devoted practically all their time to
It. One physician, the leading specialist
In Ms line In all the south, attended thres
meetings every day while we were there
and went about getting hi professional
brethren out to the meetings. It cost him
hundreds upon hundred of dollar In the
business which he- lost through his faithful
attention to God's work, but he got a
wonderful blessing from what he did.
"One thing that ha impressed me here
1 the number of young mei between the
sees of 20 and 36 years who have come
forward. That proven the point that It Is
those who are Intereated who get the
blessing. The young men have been In
terested here and they have been doing
the work.
"In many of the cttlea In which I have
held meetings there haa been a greater
awakening and a greater blessing after
the close than during tha progress of the
mission. I hope and believe that It will be
the same here."

In the fact that many of them have given
their time during the progress of the mis

of amusement.
"The mission has had a cleansing effect
on the churches of the city, and It has
added to the strength of the churches
Nearly 2.000 cards have been signed by
those who will now affiliate with some
church. The churches must keep up the
work, however, by visiting and working
with those who enter the several congre
gations as a result of the meetings. I
think that nine-tenths of the Christian peo
ple have been converted In revivals. It la
safe to say that TS per cent of those who
are converted remain Christiana."
