Rev. H. C. Herrlck Delivers Flrat of
Series of Addresses.
Rev. H. C. Herring of the First Congre
gational church began Sunday night a
series of addresses upon the llTe and work
of the Apostle Paul, under the general
title of "The Most Influential Man In His
tory." While no special. elTort will be
made during the aeries tq prove the state
ment suggested In the title, a review of the
apostle's life, character and works will be
sufficient to show that Paul was one of
the greatest personalities of history, and
bis Influence pervades Christianity to this
day. Iast evening Dr. Herring took for hla

Dean Fordyce of Nebraska Wesleyan uni

150 of the Young Men's Christian Associa

' "The moat beautiful thing Ood haa cre

The desire to own a revolver that would

Hartfelder, aged about 13 years and liv

his right hip pocket would .make him feel
like the biggest man in the world. Hla
people wouldn't give him one for Christ

priate for one of his years, so Philip began
to save and scratch until he had 12.60.

It la alwaya a wise precaution, when

There la an air of superiority !n "The
Gingerbread Man," presented twice yes
terday at the Boyd theater, that stamps
the production as something worth while
In fact, something more than worth
while. It is really an artistic "fanciful
falryesque," as the program announces.
There Is musical hit after musical hit,

stagecraft, mythical characters exploited
In a manner that arouses the risibilities

Eddie Redway'a abbreviated stature and
elongated "naw" cover much ground dur

times at one of yesterday's performances.

the fun-making delineations. Homer Lind
as Machavallus Fudge, dealer In black art,
has a splendid operatic voice. His "Queen
of My Dreams," with male chorua. Is one
of the hits of the piece. Ross Snow's bur
lesque aa the Good Fairy la cleverly done.
Imagine an angular, six-footed creature of

Young Man Comes when Haaaeom
Park Is Full of Indians aad
. Opened Offices at Eigh
teenth and Farnam.
Juat fifty years ago yesterday, the anow
falling and the wind blowing keen from the
Nebraska prairies, W. A. Paxton crossed
the Missouri and set foot for the first time
on the soil of the state which waa to be
his home for life. A ferry boat took him
acroea the river at Bellevue, the oldest
town in the state, and landed him nn a
shore which would have been beautiful
had it not been for the wintry aspect of
He came by wagon the same day to
Omaha, which consisted of a few houses
along what Is now Farnam street, and
situated not far back from the river. The
present site of the court house waa the
western suburban limit. Beyond were hills
and hollows, prairies and Indiana. In the
wood which haa alnce become Hanscom
park was a village of thirty-flve lodges
of Pawnee Indiana. They were friendly,
though, and the whltea had very little
trouble srtth, them.
The cgudtl frontier appearance of the
town and the thought of Indians and wild
erness beyond might have caused momenta
of homesickness in the heart of the young
man, who waa then not quite 20 years of
age, and who bad lived twelve years of hla
life in beautiful Kentucky, and the other
eight in Missouri. If he waa homesick it
waa but for a little while at a time, for
hla mind waa chiefly occupied by his ambi
tion to succeed in tha new country.
Mr. Paxton waa aent to Omaha by M. J.
Ragan, who had secured a contract for
building government bridges on the mili
tary road between Omaha and Fort Kear
ney and who selected Mr. Paxton as fore
man. ': He had been in charge of Mr.
Ragan'a farm in Missouri for four years,
at the handsome salary of UU0 a year.
First Office la Omaha.
At Eighteenth and Farnam streets, be
yond the edge of the town proper, Mr.
Paxton rented four small offices In a group
of ahantlea, paying t-M a month. Theae
ahanttea were at the crest of a big hill,

had a clean sweep at them. The hillside
waa covered with hazel bushes and the
hollow to the west, where Twentieth street
is, waa full of brush. On thla hilltop Mr.
Paxton opened hla bridge building head
quartera and set to work. Before the end
of the year he had built bridges across
North Omaha creek. Saddle creek, tha two
Papplos and the Klkhorn river. Then he
kept on, bridging every stream on tho road
Times were bad in those days and there
waa little chance In the new country for
a man without capital, so in 1858, when the
bridge work was finished, Mr. Paxton went
back to- Missouri and went to farming.
He was married in 18. He could not for
get Omaha and Nebraska, and after two
years of farming, with Indifferent success,
he came back to Omaha, leaving his wife
with her parents for a time.
He worked for a while freighting between
Omaha and Denver and did some sub
contracting on the Western I'nlon tele
graph line, which Edward Crelghton was
building. He went back to Missouri for
another year of farming, and in lfet3 he
landed In Omaha for tha third time, thla
time with his wife, lie had $136 In money.
He worked aome time In a livery atable
at o0 a month. The foundation of his for
tune waa laid when he bought an ox team
from Edward Crelghton for 11.060 op four
months' time and began freighting and
