UNiTE IN AN EFFORT TO SAVE SOULS

Iter. F. l I.orelanel Ask
"I want to ee Boma old-faahloned t
vlvallsm." said Rev. J. Randolph Smith
of Trinity Methodist church at -the First
Methodist church Sunday evening, when the
series of union revival service arranged
' by the First. Trinity and Hanscom Park
Methodist churches opened with a satis
factory attendance from the three congre
gation. " 'Radicalism Is conservatism In earn
est " he quoted, and then proceeded to
show how necessary' radical work and
emotion are . to the accomplishment of
anything big. He drove home the thought
"to talk religion without emotion, you
have an lclole," and he urged radical, emo
tional, revlvallstlo aid on the part of all
In the meetings Just begun.
Mr. Smith asked that every Christian put
forth every effort ' to at all times harp
upon the Ave burning fundamentals, the
recognition of the presence of a personal
Ood, the reality and nature of sin, the sense
of the necessity of renouncing sin, the
sense that Ood can save from sin and the
recognition of the personal Savior.
"What Is the definition of sin?" he asked.
The best definition for sin of which 1
know la the one given by the conscience,
When It says there 1s something wrong,
that I' have failed In the sight of God,
have done something against Ills will,
(hen I learn what sin Is." He made a
strong pica to lukewarm Christian and
church members to get out and work In
The meeting was opened with an address
by Rev. C. C. Clseell of the Hanscom Park
church, his topic being along the line of co
operation In "the King's business," aa ha
termed It. He expressed his great gratlfl
cation that at last one of his pet dreams
Is about to be realized cooperation among
the churches of the city In revival work,
H asked the personal labor and prayer
of all In aid of the project.
He waa followed by Rev. F. I Love
land, pastor of the First Methodist church
who closed the meeting with a talk full
of amotion, and one of exhortation to rouse
the members of the churches to a stricter
accounting of themselves. He also made
a strong appeal for the personal assistance
of Christians. "You women cannot ride
down the street In a carriage with a poodle
under your arm and make your love for
that do for the love for that which you
ought to have; you can't ride down Into
the slums of Omaha and drop a piece of
angel cake into the home of some poor
family and think that Is all that la re
quired of you."
The young people were also urged to
work and get strangers to attend the meet
ings. They were told to watch for young
men around In boarding houses with no
Monday evening will be the real begin
nlng of the revival. Dr. Daniel McQulrk
pastor of the Grand Avenue church at
Kansas City, will arrive in Omaha In the
morning and will lead the evening serv
ices. Meetings will be held at 7:80 o'clock
every evening for eleven more nlghta at
the First Methodist church, and then for
twelve nlghta at each of the other two
churches In the arrangement. After each
service a parlor meeting will be held, when
matters of a more Intimate and vital nature
will be discussed.

CHRIST WITH MAS THROUGH YEAR
Unseen Presence Sabjeet of Sermon by
Rev. E. K. Curry.
"My Peace Shall Go With Thee and I
Will Give Thee Rest," was the subject of
the discourse of Rev. E. R. Curry at Cal
vary Baptist church Sunday morning.
The parable of life and the unchangea
ble presence of the living God la peculiarly
applicable to this new year," said Dr.
Curry. "It Is aa unknown to us as all tha
years before us. No man possesses the
prophetic gift to tell us what the new year
will bring to us. We dwell on In uncer
tainty of the things unknown and unseen,
and In the knowledge of the Unseen Pres
ence. Our experience of life la fraught
with loneliness and sorrow. How great Is
that comfort when we can pour our sor
row Into some sympathizing ear and tell
to It the story of our distresses. But yet,
the loneliness of sorrow shall In the end
come to us as a victory and a triumph
In that we have one friend who will share
with us our griefs and lighten our bur
'To bear our Ills alone Is but the solace
of ashes. We need a comforter and friend
In our sorrow and need, and Jesus Is the
One who can give us that comfort but
for the asking. Then there Is the lonell
ness of temptation, but the comforter Is
there In the Unseen Presence, who can
open all doors and enter. Then, too, there
Is the loneliness of death. It is tha journey
we must take alone. If the wife could go
with the husband, or the mother with her
infant. It would not seem so lonely at the
starting, but we must take the Journey
alone, and there Is a triumph In the com
fort that the Unseen Presence Is with us.
"Let us take up our work for the new
year without fear and complaint. The
Unseen Presence Is with us to guide us
and cheer us. He has ' said, 'Lo, I am
with you always, and I will give you rest.
Some will enter the new year carrying
with them their own burdens. If they do
not take care they will fall under the weary
load. Go to Ood. He will carry you and
your burden, too. Cast thy burden on the
Lord. I wish every one of you the com-
pletest happiness during the new year.

successful to and with you. May the Un

SA2I FRANCISCO KEEPS CHVROIES
Rev. William Gathrlo Makes Plea for
Money to Do Work,
Rev. William Guthrie of San Francisco
made a plea from the pulpit of Trinity
cathedral Sunday morning for the aid of
the missions of San Francisco and the
church work. He said that the people of
San Francisco did not send him forth to
beg, as they were amply able to rebuild
their own churches, but It would take time,
and In the present race at San Francisco
brick and mortar waa what counted. He
said If churches could be built Immediately
much greater good could be done than If
the buildings were put up more leisurely.
"When the fire had destroyed the city
and thousands Immediately responded with
their help from all over the country," said
Mr. Guthrie, "we were led to wonder.
What have we done for you that you
should respond so quickly and abundantly?
1 It was because we were engaged In the
1 same fight as you. We may have added to
your strength by the knowledge there were
others engaged In the same work In another
section of the country He who Is local
Ised Is dead. It Is uow the time to live at
large. The earthquake waa a Joy. Not
good building suffered. '
"One thing is beautiful In the human
race: It never yields. From all o er the
union are coming men who are not afraid.
The city is surely rising. We need $776,000
to replace the edifices. We have the real
estate clear with the taxes paid, and aid
at this time would be appreciated by San
Francisco, which would be sure to repay It
two-fold In some manner by glorious deeds
In other sections. You are enough west'
enters to know the spirit of California.'

Harry A. Cloud, an educated full-blood
Ogalalla Sioux Indian, and grand nephew
of the famous old Indian chief. Red Cloud,
Is one of the witnesses for the government
In the land trials now on In the United
States district court.
"Yea, Red Cloud Is my grand uncle," said
Mr. Cloud. "The old chief Is still living
at the Pine Ridge agency. He is 86 years
old now, and Is nearly. If not wholly blind.
His wife died about two years ago and
he mourns her death deeply to this day.
Seven of his daughters are still living on
the reservation. All of them are married.
Of his six sons, but one la now living,
Jack Red Cloud, who Is also on tho res
"My grand uncle Is very feeble now and
Is growing more so every day. He talks
but little, and of late seems to live more
in the past than he did a few years ago.
He used to delight In telling us youngsters
of the old days and of how he fought
the white men to save the hunting grounds
tor the Sioux. He waa one of the principal
chiefs at tho great treaty at Fort Lara
mie In June, 1866. The other big Sioux
chiefs there were Spotted Tall, Standing
Elk, American Horse, Man-Afraid-of-Hla-Horses,
and others of whom I have heard
my grand uncle speak often, but all of
them are dead now. He had no particular
love for the later chiefs, such as Sitting
Slonx Respect Red Cload.
"AH of the Sioux Indians have tho most
reverential regard for Red Cloud. They
used to like to have him come to tha coun
cil meetings, but he told them that new
conditions existed now and he could not
advise them other than to obey, the laws
of the whites. Before the Fort Laramie
treaty of June, 1866, my grand uncle was
friendly to the whites.
"The purpose of that treaty waa to ne
gotiate for the protection of the Union Pa-
clfio railroad, which waa then being built
from Omaha. He was not opposed to the
building of the road, but he wanted as a
condition of peace that the hunting country
of the Black Hills and Powder river
should be left to the Indiana
While this treaty was In progress, two
regiments of regular soldiers came to Fort
Laramie to relieve the volunteer soldiers
then In the country, and he waa told that
the Black Hills and Powder river countries
should be left open to the Indians as the
last of their hunting grounds. But the
whites did not keep their word, for before
the treaty was fairly begun the two regi
ments marched out of Fort Laramie right
out Into the Black Hills and Powder river
countries In violation of the treaty arrange
ments and my grand uncle arose in the
council and charged the whites with perjury
and want of truth, and so Red Cloud
told them he would take nls Indiana and
go back into the country and fight every
step of the way.
Declares War on Whites. '
"His great speech on that occasion closed
with the words: We have given you the
buffalo lands of the Shallow river (the
Platte) for your Iron-horse road, and will
keep our people back and protect you. You
have promised to save our hunting lands In
the north of us, bnt by sending these sol
diers now on the march Into our hunting
grounds you are acting the lie. I will have
nothing more to do with you. I will take
my people back. We will fight you every
mile of the way to the Big Horn. We will
let your milestones be the graves of your
dead. You have lied to ua and have now
nothing to expect of us but war, war, war.'
"Red Cloud then assembled his people.
i.000 or J.000 of them, and left Fort Lara
mie that same day. How well he kept
his promise In giving war Is a matter of
history. The war began the next month
and did not end until the white troops
were driven out of the country in 1867-8.
He was in active hostility and on the war
path from June, 1866, until 187L The Fort
Phil Kearney massacre In December, 1866,
waa led by him in person. He was not at
the Custer massacre on the Little Big
Horn In the summer of 1876.
"The old chief Is getting childish in his
old age and he does not like to talk much.
He Is calmly waiting for tha end, when he
shall go to Join his fathers."

Modern Version of the Celebrated
Reproach of tho Governor of
The night on whlrh the Kentucklans
handed the stirrup cup to Mr. Watterson,
In New Tork, on the eve of his going
away to Spnln, some good, stories were
told In the nooks tof the dining room be

one was listened to "with much Interest:
"You Kentucklans." said a guest from
Georgia, "have heard all your lives about
that remark which the governor of North
Carolina received from the governor of
South Carolina. The story has been passed
down from one generation to another, each
generation believing In the tradition a
little more than the previous one.
"Well, fellow colonels, I waa down In
the Palmetto state a few weeks ago, and
while I was enjoying the hospitality of a 1

make due allowance for lapses which events
of this sort entail.
"A governor of South Carolina was the
guest 'of a governor of North Carolina.
The latter. In honor of his guest, had pre
pared a Tarheel dinner. That Is to, say,
bacon and yam were the great tempta
tions. "After the feast the Tarheel executive
Invited the Palmetto guest to have a pipe
on the veranda of the mansion. Between
the two big chairs a capacious demijohn
was placed. It waa filled with corn cop-per-diBtilled
whisky from a North Carolina
"As often as the pipes were refilled the
demijohn was tilted and the liquid gur
gled Into a gourd. This the North Caro
lina governor handed to the executive from
South Carolina, who drank off to the half
way mark, and handed the gourd , to his
host, who finished It.
"I was even told the main topic of con
versation between the governors. It was
the turpentine of one state and the rice of
the other state.
"The governor of South Carolina said
my host, was a large man and full of pores.
Such a man can drink a thin man to a
finish any day. The liquor exudes aa fast
aa It Is swallowed.
"So the South Carolina executive was In
a fresh condition most of the time. The
Tarheel executive knew his weakness and
began to 'nig" on his gourd early and In
doing so he ladled out about three drinks
to the Palmetto man to one for himself.
"But gentlemen I mean colonels the
North Carolina governor In spite of his
caution and in spite of his computation as
to the capacity of his guest was the first
to be overcome. His pipe fell from his

"The governor of South Carolina was
too polite a man to notice the somnolent
condition of his host. Continuing his ar
gument on the staple product of his state,
he held his gourd , near the mouth of the
demijohn, which had run dry, and finally
noticing that the gourd was not as molest
aa It should be . tha governor of Bouth

products and asked abruptly;
Governor, don't you think lt'a a damned

"The governor of North Carolina alept
on. Hla falthfubpdy servant, hearing
tho Inquiry of his, excellency from South
Carolina, and not ,waptlng to be chagrined
by the failure of his master to extend his
great hospitality, slipped off the edge of the
veranda and took t,o the woods.
"Tho governor of South Carolina, notic
ing the continued absence of language
from his host and also noticing the de
camping of the servant, 'likewise having
tapped the demijohn and finding It like a
last year's bird'a nest, slowly arose, laid
aside the gourd, ambled to the stile block,
mounted his charger and rode away. It
Is said that his horse never hesitated un
til he bore his master across the state
"Then the governor of South Carolina
looked back and shook his gauntlet In the
direction whence he had come. When the
governor of North Carolina came out of
his comatose condition and realized hla
humiliation, he brcke the demijohn and
smashed the gourd.

"Raffias" Pretested to Sunday Atdieooea
by Very Good Conpany.
S. MILLER KENT IN THt LEADING ROLE
"Iroajnola" at the Borwood Gets aa
Oration and the Vandevllle Bill at
tho Orpheam Proves Ono
of Best of Seaaon.
8. Miller Kent hns fallen heir to the
Raffles role, and Is now presenting it In
the popular-priced houses throughout the
country. He Is doing very well with It,
too. There Is something In the part that
seems to fit very closely to Mr. Kent's
methods as an actor, and he gives quite
an Impressive picture of the thief who hnd
the manners of a gentleman. AH the way
through the exciting action of the play
he sustains the tension to such a degree
as carries the watcher with him. His quiet.
Intense manner and his low, vibrant speech
are very effective.
The company supporting Mr. Miller la a
good one. too. Mr. Frank McCormack Is
playing Captain Bedford, and does It with
much sest. He follows Mr. Holland very
closely In the part, and makes quite a
,.,. of it nm e it,.
Brn8 ,re ,OBt but on the wholo the pnrt ,a
well played. Miss Lillian Rhodes la the
Gwendolyn Conron of the cast, and her
fresh, girlish face and manner add much
to the beauty of the role. She lmpreasea
with her sincerity, and generally wlna
favor. Miss Sara Leigh la the Mrs. Vldal,
and Is splendid In the part. Her beautiful
face is marred by the sinister look of a dis
appointed woman, suffering from years of
rejected love, and she keeps the look to
the very end. The rest of the company Is
quite capable. The production Is correct
and the performance altogether enjoyable.
It was not the usual 8unday crowds that
witnessed the performance at the Krug
yesterday, but those who did attend were
treated to something seldom seen In the
house, a fine play well acted. The engage
ment ends with this evening's performance,
and the company should be rewarded by
as big a crowd as the house will hold.
Vaudeville at the Orpheam.
It Is to laugh at the Orpheum this week.
A mingling of circus and farce comedy
makes up the bill, which is one of the most
entertaining seen there this season. Vasco,
"the mad musician," is the bright particu
lar spot. He plays on such a number of
Instruments as Is bewildering and plays
well on each. His performance Is a mix
ture of mirth and good musio such as Is
seldom listened to. The eight Klta-Banzat
Japanese afford much excellent amusement
with their acrobatic work. Their feats are
hardly new or sensational, but they are
done with ease and grace. Pero an
Wilson mingle song, pantomime, juggling
and barrel jumping, a queer mixture, but
pleasant to take as they prepare It. Masus
and Mazette have a lot of new stunts In
the sketch, which is chiefly acrobatic, with
some entertaining comedy. W. H. Hlckey
and Florence Brocee Nelson offer the same
sort of entertainment along slightly differ
ent lines, and make good with it. The
Empire ' City quartet sings very well and
causes untold laughter with Its comedy.
M ile Alexandra and M. Bertie do a clever
stunt on a trapeze. The pictures In the
klnodrome are a series of views of Niagara
falls, which are , very attractive and In
structive, even to those who have visited
the falls and seen them as they are In
"Iroquois" nt tho Bnrwood.
Omaha theater-goers who enjoy Albert
Morrison's interpretation of Indian char
acter,' and their number is legion Judging
by the size and the responsiveness of the
audience laat night, will be glad to see him
again In a repetition of Sedley Brown's
great play, "Iroquois," which la the bill
thta week at the Burwood. There Is some
thing In tho way Mr. Morrison handles the
part of the educated Indian that appeals
to his audience, and some of his greatest
successes here have been In Indian char
acter. Last night was no exception, and
seldom haa he, and in fact the entire com
pany, been accorded auch an ovation aa
they received. At the close of the third
act Mr. Morrison was forced to respond to
a curtain call and make a speech. The ap
plause was a tribute to the work of the
entire company. Seldom have they seemed
without exception to work so thoroughly In
harmony with their parts. .
Miss Constance Adams was excellent In
her presentation of the part of Alice King,
the girl for whose love Iroquois and Arthur
La Salle are waging a stock brokers' bat
tle. The part requires not only charm of
personal appearance, but also great emo
tional power, and Miss Adams has both.
The addition of David Hartford, who ap
peared In the part of Arthur LaSalle, to
the stock company should be gratifying to
Burwood patrons. He showed talent of the
highest order In the "heavy" work of the
cast. The rest of the company gave sup
port of the best, but special recognition
should be given Miss Hudson, who took the
part of Dr. Lillian Deane.
The play was presented under the per
sonal direction of Mr. Morrison himself and
there was nothing lacking In the staging.
In the third act is an artistic piece of
work In the furnishing of a wigwam smok
ing den more than ordinarily pleasing.
"Iroquois" will run the entire week, with
the usual matinee. .

"Painting the Town," well styled as a
musical hurrah In three acts, waa pre

DISORDERLY MAN ARRESTED
John De In eh Who Attempted to
Trent Neighbors In t'hnrrh.
Lands In City Jail.
Because he did not know the Impropriety
of Introducing bottled spirits Into a house
of worship John DeKlnch, 607 South Thir
teenth street, spent 8unday night In jail.
DeKlnch somehow found the front door
of the Russian Congregation of Israel
church, 1712 Capitol avenue, during even
ing services, and thoughts of his boyhood
days, before he began to wander, Impelled
him to enter. Out of one pocket protruded
the neck of a whisky bottle full to the top.
All would probably have gone well had
not De Klnch forgotten all about the days
of yore. Looking around he made tha dis
covery that all the men wore their hats,
ss 's the custom In Hebrew churches. In
stantly his reverence for the place died
and he thought himself outdoors In some
crowd . Pulling the bottle from his pocket
he offered it to his neighbors, but all re
fused with angry glances.
Whisky Is not a favorite beverage with
the Hebrew, and especially waa the Ire of
the men aroused at Its being offered In
side the church. Thus the space of time
Intervening until the police were notified
and the trespasser led off to Jail by Pa
trolman F. Murphy waa almost too short

his daughter in a fix where she has to
choose between her father and the son of

Gamblers' Odd Wnarer.
Driven to desperation by their heavy
losses, gamblers have often sought by some
coup either to repair their shattered for
tunes or to bring down utter ruin upon
themselves. One of the most curious in
stances of this kind cornea from England
of the eighteenth century. A notorious
gambler had been losing steadily In a game
for high stakes with Lord Lome. Ex
asperated by ' his continued 111 fortune, he
auddenly sprang up from the card table,
seized a large and costly punch bowl, and.
balancing It above hla head, called out to
'For one I'll have a bet where I have
an equal chance of winning! Odd or even
for 15,000 guineas T"
-. "Odd," replied tha peer placidly, and tho
gambler - hurled the magnificent bowl
against the wall.
When they counted the pieces Lord Lome
had won. Tuesday Magazine,
"Here Is an item to the effect that a plate
of hot soup will nourish a man more than
six drinks of whisky."
"Perhaps so. I know it will make him
fighting mad. I saw an Instance of It just
the other day."
"You saw a plate of hot aoup make a
man fighting madT"
"Yea, the waiter spilled It on the man's
bald head." Cleveland Plain Dealer.
Too Much of a Harry.
There Is nothing like being stylish, even
at funerals. An example of this cornea
from the Back Bay, where investigation
of the reported death of a millionaire's
wife, known to be very ill. was found to
havs arisen through her husband having
ordered mourning livery for Bis butler,
coachman, and footman, Boston Harald.

SPUD FARR1SII DIES SBDDESL
Panel Away at Horns of Sitter in Griffins
LIVED IN INVALID'S CHAIR FlVt YEARS
Was a Former Omaha Fireman and
Member ot Rlks Fraternity and
Popalnr with All Who
John C. Farrlsh. better known to tila
friends as "Spud." haa died at his sister's
home at Urlffinahurg, Va., after having
suffered five years from an Injury to his
spine received In a full on Farnam street.
During these five years he was practically
all of the time In a roller chair.
Mr. Farrlsh died Sunday morning. Th
news of his death whs received from his
sister, Mrs. Florence Yates, by Fire Chief
Charles A. Salter. It was only a brief tel
egram, merely announcing the death, and
saying nothing about funeral arrangements
or disposition of the boily.
For some time each day has been looked
upon as "Spud's" last, ltst Wednesday
Mra Salter received a letter from Mr.
Yates In which sh said "Spud" could not
live many days.
"Spud" has always written to his friends
In Omaha whenever he was able. The last
words from his own hand came on a postal
card to Chief Saltur on Christmas day. At
the same time Christmas enrds were re
ceived by some of the fire boys who had
been his comradea.
Spud Farrlsh came to Omaha In 1880
long, lean and lanky southern youth with
a decided soft -southern accent which cam
to him with life at Culpepper Court House,
Va., and he went to work almost Imme
diately for Peycke Bros., a commission firm
which was then In business at Tenth and
Farnam streets. Spud was popular from
the first and derived his nickname from
handling potatoes for this commission firm.
He worked for Peycke Bros. . for f ouf
years and then joined the paid fire depart
ment as a member of a hook and ladder
company. After several years In that
branch of the service he took the position
of clerk to Fire Chief Jack Galllgan, which
position he held until Incapacitated by th
accident which left him an Invalid.
Spud waa a member of the Elks fra
ternity and was most popular among hla
large circle of friends, and many a poor
man has felt the kindness which waa al
ways being extended by thla prince of good
fellows. He had the misfortune to lose
one of his hands several years ago. and
In a peculiar manner. He was on the eve
of departure for Chicago, and someone
handed him a firecracker, which he at
tempted to light, . Thinking he had not
succeeded he held the bomb In 'nls hand
until the explosion tore his hand away,
some parts of .it being found clear across
the street. This accident darkened th
Fourth of July for his many friend In
Many tales are told on the genial Spud.
At one time he was going east and bor
rowed a large diamond from Harry Moores.
While sitting In front of a hotel In Wash
ington a thief grabbed hla diamond and
ran. Spud pursued for twelve blocks and
finally wore the thief out and held him
until the arrival of the police. The robber
had thrown the diamond away, but he was
sent to the penitentiary.
After the accident which deprived Spud
of th use of his limbs his brother Elks
gav a benefit and raised about $3,000,
which waa used to snd him to Ms old
home at Grlfflnsborg, Va., wher he has
been cared for by loving friends.
During this time he had been able to
writ to aome of hla Omaha friends, and
each fall haa sent a bag of Virginia chest
nuts to the Owl club, of which he was s
member. This club reciprocated by meet
lng and having their photographs taken,
which were forwarded to Spud. A letter
waa received by a representative of th
club In which Spud expressed his apprecia
tion of the kind remembrance.
Spud waa always interested In the sport
lng events of the world and none was
better posted than he. He took an active
part In all events of a sporting nature In
Omaha and was the promoter of many of
the boxing bouts which were pulled oft in
the city In the olden days.
