'Christ and His love cannot be defined;
thev are too big for definition. " said Rev.
Mr. Loveland In his morning; sermon,
"Centuries ago men thought they were
big enough to define Jesus of Nasareth,
but they never did It. There are many
things too big for definition. Tou know
what beauty Is and yet who could tell what
It IsT You know what a poem Is and yet
you could never define all there Is in a

turies from now men will still be writing
biographies of htm.
"So I give you this paradox: We know
Christ, but we cannot define Him. But
though we cannot tell what He Is, we may
know Him In a measure to make your
life and mine as beautiful as the rose.
"All love, we know, except God's, Is
born of love or harmony. I can under

the love of a patriot for his country, the
love of a people for Lincoln or McKlnley.

understand why business men have their
olubs and women their societies. I can
understand why the toller should be drawn
to others of the same kind. I can under
stand moral gravitation.
"I cannot understand the love which is
not born of love or harmony, and that Is
why I cannot understand the love of Ood,
which paste th all understanding. It Is too
big for us to understand why Jesus loves
them that hate Him; why He should say,
'Father, forgive them; they know not what
they do;'why He who Is pure should love
those who are impure; why He who Is light
should love what Is dark; why He who
does God's will should love those who are
In rebellion against It. That passeas the

on. There are three things to be.oonsld
ered when the battle rages. These are the
motives of the world, the fear of the world
and our dependence upon the world.
"The motives of the world are self-indulgence
and self-gratification. W should
be leas addicted to Its vanities. Wi should
not live for the gratification of our appe
tites, display, wealth and dreaa and other
external vanltlea and everything for out
side adornment, for Us shams, hypocrtcles
and deceits. The greatest curse of
modern society Is the hunger for the ap
plause of men. We yearn too much for
the things of the world rather than for
the spirit, because of the world's motive
'Then there Is the motive of worldly
power. Men want wealth because by It
they have power. The fear of the world
Is another of our weaknesses. Men really
have less fear of doath Itself than of
praise or censure of the world. This fear
of the world must be overcome If we de
sire a victorious life. Then our dependence
upon the world Is another of our frailties.
We are filled with a profound dependence
upon the world. We are strong today, but
"But yet, what can the world do In the
endT What promise can the world give
up when we approach the beyond T Whon
we are weary of body and borne down by
discouragements and disappointments, what
can the world give us7 God wants us to
enjoy the things of life, but He does not
want us to depend wholly upon the world
for every enjoyment. After all, the world
Is but vanity, vanity; all Is vanity, and
he who leans upon the world will find In
the end that It Is but a broken reed. The
victorious life Is the victory of faith; to
take hold of the things of Ood. Faith
helps man to breathe the atmosphere of
the divine presence. Carry your faith Into
every walk of life and Into the presence
of Ood. Fear not man, but fear God. What
Is the profit If a man gain the whole world
and lose his own soulT There Is no fear
In the contemplation of divine things.
There Is only one real enjoyment, and
that is faith in God. Let us co-operate
with God this coming year, and it will
become one glorious victory."

TRIBUTE TO BISHOP 1XABE
Memorial Serricei Held at CbuTCb Dedi
cated ii His Venory.
REV. J. RANDOLPH SMITH ORATOR
Clos Friend mt Late Prelate Makes
Principal Address, Referring;
t Hlsn mm Militant
In the church which he dedicated and
which la named In memory of him, the
McCabe Memorial Methodist church. For
tieth and Fnrnam streets, a memorial
service was held Sunday afternoon for the
great ecclesiastic who passed away this
month. The hymns used at the service
were the favorites of the bishop and chosen
for that purpose. Rev. J. Randolph Smith,
who was a close friend of Bishop McCabe,
made the principal address.
The passing of this man was more like
the coronation of a knight In the court of
heaven," said Rev. Mr. Smith. "For Bishop
McCabe was a knight. Those doughty men
of old, who went about the world fighting
in many a bloody fight for the right, pro
tecting the helpless and spreading tbe
Christian religion, never did deeds more
bold than Bishop McCabe did in his life.
"Like Mara Antony, I can say 'I come
not here to praise,' for you who knew the
man know that, were he here, he would
be the first to place the seal of silence on
anyone who sought to utter fulsome
praises concerning htm. Nor do I come to
bury him, for that cannot be done. Socrates
said to those who inquired about the dis
posal of his body, Tou can bury me if you
can catch me.' He referred to the soul
which cannot be burled. The same Is truo
of Bishop McCabe.
Essentially Militant Bishop.
"He was essentially the militant bishop.
Hts courage was absolutely unlimited, his
faith boundless. Throughout all history It
Is the fighter who leaves a name whether
he fights with sword, with mind or with
faith. This was a man who did things.
The Methodist church has had bishops who
were great orators, great ecclesiastical
lawyers or great educators. McCabe was
not the apostle of Demosthenes, of Black
stone or of Erasmus. He was essentially
'the apostle of the done work.' He carried
an empire, as it were, In hts brain. Ha
administered that empire as no man before
blm had ever done for the glory of God
and the upbuilding of Hts kingdom on
earth. Whether It was McCabe, the boy.
ministering to the wounded and dying on
the field of battle, or McCabe, the man,
ministering to the spiritually wounded In
the field of the church. It was always the
same earnest, hopeful, faithful, Indefatig
Ten Tears as Prelate.
"After his wonderful work In the mis
sionary society and the church extension
work, he was elected bishop In 1894. In
that position he worked harder than ever.
Indeed, he never consented to step up
higher unless he saw that ha would have
an opportunity to work harder. As a
bishop he filled fifty-six engagements of
from one to seven days each and held six
conferences In six months of one year that
I know of, and this Is about the average
of the work connected directly with the
duties ofi his office. He made numerous
tripe to foreign lands In all parts of the
world and was actively busy all the time
with no secular affairs to take his mind
from this work in which he was wrapped
up. He very rarely took a vacation. .
"Aside from this work he had his own
personal work, in which h raised and dis
bursed great sums. He paid a number of
church debts of long standing with his per
sonal check. Two great banks in New Tork
honored his notes without question to any
amount- Hs often paid the debt first and
then set out with his faith and his industry
to raise the money.
"His death was like that of Elijah, for
he, like the prophet, went about among
the cities during his life, and, like the
prophet, he came literally to the river when
he was summoned to the farther side. It
was as he was about to board a ferry boat
In New Tork that his last Illness overtook
him. He lingered seven days and then the
chariot of God took him henoe. With a
smile he spoke his last words, 'This Is the
end. but I am ready to go.' Peace to the
ashes of one of God's great men."
Rev. Clyde C Clssell, who was one of the
first men ordained by Bishop McCabe, made
a few remarks. Resolutions of memory and
sympathy were adopted by the church and

FUNERAL OF FRANK TINKLER
Service Held Over Body f Tonna-
Mnn Drowned In Cat-Off
Funeral services over the body of Joseph
Frank Tinkler, who was drowned Friday
night by skating Into an airhole In the Ice
at Cut-Off lake, were held at 2:80 Sunday
afternoon at his home, 12) South Thirty
fifth avenue. The services were In charge
of Rev. E. H. Jenks, pastor of the First
Presbyterian r-hurch, of which Mr. Tinkler
was a member. Dr. Jenks delivered a touch
Ing eulogy on the young man, who was the
sole support of his widowed mother, Mrs.
Sarah ' K. Tinkler, and one sister. The
floral tributes were numerous and many
associates of Mr. Tinkler In the Union Pa
cific offices, where he had been employed,
were present to pay their last respects.
After the ceremonies at th residence the
body was taken to Illinois for Interment,
accompanied by tbe mother.

escape the horrid things that ' 'bij

It seemed worth while trying. It , , P3
worked out so well that for the mi 8 a .
we forget the probabilities and only th,. ,
of the possibilities. For the third time
we are Interested in a thief and really
anxious to see the law defeated. The
other case was that of one A. J. Raffles,
fascinating fellow, who stole things in
houses where he was welcomed as a guest.
He was simply a rascal, polished, but a
rascal none the less. Then there was Leah
Kleschna, who aided her father and his
pals; shs was a thief from environment.
And now comes Nance Olden, a thief
through circumstances. Each of these la a
type and each a study. The Hornung thief
fascinates, but doesn't hold the sober
thought as the McClelland thief did. The
Mlchelson thief enlists the sympathy as
neither of the others does, and leaves one
wishing it might be true that she finally
found a door to happiness. Why should
one take sober thoughts to the theater, any
how? Isn't it better to allow yourself to
be carried along by the author and the
actor and believe what they tell you? If
you do you escape a lot of worry.
"In the Bishop's Carriage" is a pretty
story of what might have happened. Its
essence has been carefully preserved In the
acting version Mr. Pollock has prepared
from the book. The work has been done
with some degree of deftness, but certain
gaps have been bridged over by melodra
matio expedients that Jv Juat a trifle. The
Interest in the moral rejuvenation of Nance
Olden is lessened In no degree, though, and
the final outcome is very popular. And Mr.
Pollock did not forgot that once he was a
"harmless, but necessary," reporter, and
gives us a pressman who Is also a gentle
man. On the whole, the piece Is enjoyable
and should prove a popular attraction here.
Miss Jessie Busley, who Is doing Nance
Olden, comes as stranger to Omaha, but
easily redeems all the promises made for
her by the critcs of the weet, who have
been praising her Inordinately. She has
power for both repression and expression.
and her sense of proportion is excellent,
the gradual development of the character
from the bravado of the girl thief, who tells
the chauffeur In answer to Inquiry, "Any
where you d n please1'," to the contriteness
of the sincerely repentant woman, begging
In a pathetlo way for a chance for happi
ness. Is work for n artist, and Miss Bus
ley does it as an artist should. It doesn't
go by Jerks, but by degrees, the effect be
ing cumulative, and therefore the more Im
pressive. It is a clear conception oleverly
wrought out, and fully deserves all the
praise it has received.
The supporting company Is a splendid or
ganization. Mr. Douglas suffers to some
extent irom Deing required to present a
woman's man, for such are usually too good
to be true. Tom Dorgan is a fine popular
notion of a burglar, though, and Is well
done by Mr. Keane. Dear old Rose Etynge,
beloved of a passed generation, Is In the
cast, and- her silver hair and fine old face
give to Mrs. Latimer an air of motherly
comfort that reaches every man who ever
had a dear old mother. All share In the
credit for a fine performance.
The audience at the Boyd last night was
fairly large, and was quite enthusiastic
over the play. The piece will be repeated
this evening and Tuesday evening, and will
be seen at a special New Tear's matinee on
"Pretty PesTery' at the Bnrwood
"Pretty Peggy," which is presented at
the Burwood this week by the Woodward
Stork company, is a pretty romance In
volving the love affairs of David Garrlck,
and the setting of the play In In the days
when wit and chivalry were at their best
In England. The action is laid on the
common ground trod by the despised stage
people and the nobility of the day. Ample
opportunity Is given in this setting for a
play upon the romantic order.
Miss Constance Adams begins her second
week's engagement at the BurWood In the
part of Peggy Woffington, made famous by
Grace George. She Is given a wide range
in which to display her talents to a critical
public and In general measured up to the
requirements of the part, which demands
versatility and strength of feeling. David
Garrlck, the fickle heart-breaker who de
velops Into the ardent wooer of Pctrgy,
finds an excellent Interpreter In Albert
Owing to the large number of characters
in the play, the cast has to be specially
augmented. All of the faces of the old
j son and Gussle Nelson In their slnrlnsj
j and dancing and specialty hits are among
the topllners. They win many a good laugh
by dint of merit. Maddox and Melvln
come along well up at the top. keeping
the house In a roll of laughter from the
time they.arpear till they disappear.
Thelr's Is "The Messenger Boy and the
Actress." The patrons of the Orpheum
have been treated, It would seem, to about
the best there is In acrobats this season.
The Bard brothers did things which seemed
altogether beyond the pale of human pos
sibility, and now come the Six Gllnserettls
with stunts equally as wonderful and be
wildering. Indued, they are bewildering
the terrible performances of these men.
Max Mllllan at the violin, accompanied by
his sister at the piano and Miss Augustu
Gloss In spoken characteristic songs, are
heartily cheered for their part of the en
tertainment. Both performances yesterday
drew stand-room-only houses and for once
the bulletin for the klnodrome kept the
crowds till the "last man was out." For
the bulletin proclaimed that It was a series
of Cub-White Sox pictures In that great

are the goods, too.

Th statement that Crelghton university

"I believe some years ago, when such a

people offered some objections, but It was
not so much to the line running oa that

university. They were so one-sided , and
unfair that they simply could not be ac

distinctly understood and I think I vole
th sentiments of the trustees that I am
not opposed to such Improvements. If the
street car company and the city want this
line w will meet them more than half way.
