DRAWS HIS LESSON FROM THE PARABLE
Mm Hired Last Mar Has Renare4

Emptor1 Who nrnmbled
"Many lessons are to be drawn from the
parable of the master who hired the la
borers at the different hour of the day,"
aald Canon R. H. B. Bell of Good Shepherd
Episcopal church Sunday morning In a ser
mon in which ha used that parable aa his
text, "lie paid the last as much aa the
first, a penny, but he had agreed with the
first for a penny, so he was carrying out
his agreement. A penny In those days
was worth a sheep, or as much aa $2 or S3
today. The first hired grumbled, but was
be to Judge that the master was not better
satisfied with the labor of the man who
waa hired at the eleventh hour?
"The Savior Is better pleased with men
who work In the spirit rather than In the
letter of the agreement. He Is not pleased
with ear eervlce or eye service, but with
service which comes from the heart. Many
are asking too much of the time what tho
return will be. These men who serve Ood
outwardly, working for the mere penny
rather than for the grace of God or their
Master, who think they are worth more
' than the wages they are receiving should
rather strive to make themselves so use
ful In the eyes of their masters that they
would force recognition.
"Those who compare themselves with
others, feossip about them, considering they
are better than their neighbors, are the
same as those who thought they were en
titled to more than a penny, the agreed
price. They may not be as valuable In
the eyes of the master. The man hired
last might have been worth more. If we
enter the field of labor as a hireling, think
ing solely of how much we can earn Instead
of striving to give to our master the best
there Is In us. Instead of working for him
as though we were working for our own
interests, we cannot hope for the grace of
"The same thought should apply to re
ligion and church work. Think whether
you are working for Ood and His church,
with the Idea of getting solvation In meas
ure to the amount of your work. Strive
rather to do what you can for others, for
Ood will care for His workers. Let the
people of the church cultivate a more
friendly feeling toward each other and be
more interested In each other's welfare.
Boelals will do that. Ood aeeka always the
laborers, and happy are those who are

may be better In the eyes of God than the
HUlfTTXClTOlf TALKS OS EDUCATION
Chancellor of Wesleyaa' Speaks at
Walnut Hill Methodist.
8unday waa educational day at Walnut
Hill Methodist church, the morning being
given to a sermon on education and the
evening to a rally of the Nebraaka Wes
ley an .students of Omaha. '
Chancellor D.-W. C. Huntington of Ne
braska Wesleyan university delivered the
morning sermon, or, rather. It was a talk.
To show tho advantages of higher educa
tion ha used Prof. Thwlnga analysis of
"Who's Who." Prof. Thwing aays there
are 40,000,000 people In the country who are
more than 21 years of age. Of these,
4.000.000 are Illiterate, S2.O0O.O00 have bad
district or grade school education, 2.000,000
a have had high school education and 1,000,000
are college graduates. Of the 8,000 persons
mentioned In "Who's Who," twenty-one
are of the Illiterate class, 808 of the dis
trict school class, 1,244 of the high school
class, while nearly 6,000 are college grad
uates. Dr. Huntington made a plea for financial
support for Nebraska Wesleyan university
and In comparing its advantages with those
of other schools had occasion to refer to
the relative advantages of state and de
nominational institutions. The latter, he
said, are more successful in two particu
lars; they give better moral and religious
training and by being smaller Institutions
re able to look after the individual and
give him a better education than the
larger schools. Wesleyan university, he
aid, stood thirty-first among fifty leading
denommatloaa! schools of the country nine
years ago, while today it stands tenth.
In the evening the students and gradu
ates of Nebraska Wesleyan university who
live In Omaha gathered at the church,

LEMO9 DRAWN FROM THE SEA
. Jeaka Tells of Thomhtt by the
Xast returned from a two weeks' hunting
and fishing trip in the south. Rev. Edwin
Hart Jenks drew some lessons from what
he had observed and presented them to the
congregation at the First Presbyterian
church last evenlhg. He took his text from
the 107th Psalm. "They that go down to
the sea In ships, that do the business of
the great waters, these see the works of
the Lord and His wonders In the deep."
"During the last year it has been my
fortune to spend considerable time In
hips,"' said Dr. Jenks. "Last Sunday
morning I disembarked from a boat on the
Gulf of Mexico and walked along the shore
of that body of water. I love the sea;
and as I walked there came over me an

that has created alt this, and I thought

CHILI) LABOR PLEA IS TOO LATE
Reejaest for Herman Yesterday Ket
Received la Time.
Few, If any, sermons on child labor were
delivered from the pulpits of Omaha Sun
day, even though the n at Tonal child labor
committee had requested many of the
preachers to speak on the subject. The
reason for their apparent neglect of the
request Is found In the fact that the
committee's letters came too late to allow
them to change plans already adopted.
Many of them were In the midst of a
series of sermons and did not wish . to
break the continuity. Some will preach
on the subject next Sunday and some a
week or two later.
Names of prominence are Included In the
personnel of the committee which lias re
quested the sermons. Among them are

branch of the Knlghta of Zlon at Patter

from delegates who had attehted the ninth
annual convention of Zionists In Chicago,
December 29 to January L Miss Gordon
'We are a people without a land, while
there In our old home la a land without
a people. There are Jews who do not be
lieve In Zionism. They say America la
good enough for ua So It Is, but while we
have maintained the originality or our
race as a people, we are nationless. To re
establish Zlon does not mean that we are
all to go back to Zlon. It merely means
that we shall have a home to go to should
we be denied refuge elsewhere.
'I resent the Idea that Zionists comprise
the poorer and less progressive class of
Jews. On the contrary, some of the moat
eminent and wealthy of our race are
ardent Zionists. We are not asking, for
sympathy In this movement, but we do ask
your assistance. We shall strive on until
the blue and white flag of Judealsm shall
yet float over our own national horn land."

Two federal building friends of Postofflce
Inspector D. J. Sinclair 'do not credit the
report that Mr: Sinclair haa been summarily
removed from office. Mr. Sinclair was seen
Saturday and, while not disposed to talk
of the matter or make any comments upon
the repeated reports of his removal or that
his resignation had been called for, said:
"I have tendered my resignation. I have
not been advised of Its acceptance, nor was
I requested to resign. Further than this
It would be Imprudent for me to say any

Into matters that could be settled by a
little friendly caution on the part of the
Inspectors and which has been practiced
heretofore with the full concurrence of
the Postofflce department In the matter of
the unintentional infractions of postofllce
rules, haa doubtless been taken advantage
of by these overiealous inspectors. To
such a cause I attribute the real gist of
the Sinclair episode. I understand, too, that
the most cordial relations do not exist
between Mr. Harrison, chief inspector of
one of the western divisions, and Mr. Bin
clalr. But I know nothing of the extent
of this alleged unfriendly feeling. Mr,
Harrison's headquarters are in St, Louis
and he haa also an office at Kansas City,
In which division Nebraska is located. I
have not talked with Mr. Sinclair recently,
but from casual observation I am led to
think the trouble lies largely with the
strained relations said to exist between
Superintendent Harrison and Inspector Bin.

ONE LITTLE LEAK IN THE LID
Only Jens ltelsaa Arrested for Selllnsj
Wills ay aad Town Is
One Imprudent saloon man dared tamper
with the hard and fast lid yesterday and
he waa quickly caught in - the mesh of
the dragnet thrown out by the doughty
members of Chief Donahue's "whisky
brigade." Jens Nelson, proprietor of an
alcoholic emporium at 602 South Thirteenth
street. Is the unlucky mortal who will have
to face the muslo dispensed In police court,
with every prospect In favor of his being
deprived of his license.
A quiet tip was received at police head
quarters that Nelson was alleviating the
thirst of the multitude by a lucrative back
door trade. Officers Waters and Brown
cantered to the scene of action In double
quick time about 1030 Sunday morning.
They rapped softly at the back door of
Nelson's saloon, and In accents low and
thirsty, asked for a small flask of real
Nelson supplied the fiery fluid and was
given the price. He was then told to hie
himself to the police station on the charge
of keeping open on Sunday In violation of
the Slocumb law. In case a conviction Is
secured In the case the question of the re
vocation of Nelson's license will be put
squarely up to the Are and police board.
Although the "whisky ' brigade" was
called Into action early In the day Nelson
was the only person found trying to annex
a few shekels In violation of the orders
of Chief Donahue. The chief himself spent
several hours personally Investigating the
condition of the lid. '
Ehren though Mayor Dahlman was at the
helm yesterday the town was hoisted higher
up on the -water wagon than waa the case
last Sunday, when three saloon men were
arrested. It is evident the proprietors of
places of liquid refreshment have come to
the conclusion that the lid Is on for keeps
and have concluded to swallow the lemon
handed to them by the chief with as good
grace as possible.
One noticeable effect of the Sunday clos
ing order yesterday was that not a single
arrest was made 'during the entire day
GREENE BACK FROM BIG CASE
Tells of Burlington and Union Paelfle
' Tax Salt In Supreme
Charles J. Green arrived home Sunday
from Washington, where he argued before
the supreme court of- the United States
the case of the Burlington railroad in the
suit brought by It against the state of Ne
braska to enjoin the state from the col
lection of taxes assessed against the road
for 1904. The Burlington and the Union
Pacific, which brought a similar suit, lost
their cases In the -United States court at
Omaha and appealed them to the supreme
court. ' .'.
"The bearing lasted about five hours, of
which the railroads , took three and the
state two," said' Mr.' Oreene. "The court
did not get to the dBase until late Tuesday
and It had to be oontlnued on Wednesday.
"I opened wltbatt- hour's argument for
the Burlington andi John N. Baldwin fol
lowed with an hour for the Union Pacific.
The case was simpUfied because we did
not attempt to take up the matter of the
relative assessment vof other property, but
rested our arguments on the proceedings
of the State Board '.'of Equalisation. I ar
gued that the board had ignored the atate
statutes, though I-'dld not lay so much
stress on this, as t Is not strictly a fed

the board had no right to assess stocks
and bonds representing property In other

HARRIMAN NEW FRUIT LINE
Cars Modern and Said to ' Bo Best
Made for Refrigerator
As an auxiliary of the Haniman lines the
Pacific Fruit Express company will soon
take over the Pacific fruit and vegetable
business now being handled in Armour
cars. The cars of the Harrlman line are
all new and modern1 and will be operated
between the Pacific coast and the east to
handle fruit, vegetables and other perish
able freight. The company has ordered
1600 cars. Of this total the first 800 are
now being received and the balance is to
be delivered at the -rate of 1,200 a month.
The new cars are probably the best that
have ever been put In the refrigerator
service. Besides combining the latest sys
tems of refrigerating they have steel under
names and other appliances best adapted
to withstand rough usage.
The Pacific Fruit Express company will
be operated Independently of the Union
land Southern Paetflo roads and in idle
seasons tho cars may bo rented to roads
and lines In other parts of the country.
C. M. Secrist, connected with the Hani

operator and station- agent, but has been
in the general trafflo department the major
part of his career.' - He was chief clerk
for the freight traffic manager of the

years. More recently he has occupied a
similar position for J. C. Stubba, traffic

ALONE AND UNCONSCIOUS IN SHACK
Amputation of Both Legs Neeesaary
aad Saving of Life Is Deemed
Matter of Extreme
With both lower limbs badly frosen and
his body covered with vermin, Dan Mc
Nabb, nearly 80 years of age, was found
unconscious and nearly dead from starva
tion and exposure Sunday morning In a
shack at 2116 Pacific street, where he bad
maintained bachelor quarters. He had evi
dently been unconscious for at least twenty-four
hours. Police Surgeon Heine was
summoned and had McNabb removed to
the county hospital In the patrol wagon,
but the man had not regained consciousness
at a late hour Sunday evening and his re
covery is not expected.
McNabb was found by Police Sergeant
Whelan. who had been told by Matthias
Franther, a neighbor, that he feared Mc
Nabb was dead, as he had seen no signs
of life at the home of McNabb since last
Thursday. Sergeant Whelan made an in
vestigation and broke down the door of
McNabb's shanty, which It situated on the
side of a small hill. The officer found
McNabb lying on a pallet on the floor of
the only room and covered only with a
dilapidated overcoat The only piece of
furniture In the room was the pallet upon
which the unconscious man lay, and there
was not a scrap of food In the house,
with the exception of a small quantity of
The scene that greeted the eyes of the
officer waa one of utter desolation. There
had been no fire in the shack for days, al
though 'there was about two pecks of coal
in one corner of the room, but McNabb
had evidently become too sick or weak
to leave his miserable bed and keep ' up
the fire. The water in a pall was frosen
solid and the floor of the cabin literally
covered with dirt and live vermin.
McNabb had lived alone In the shack
for several years. He Is not known to
have any relatives In Omaha. He had
supported himself by doing odd jobs and
chores In different parts of the city, but
not one cent could be found among his
meager effects. It Is reported he owned
the house and lot where he lived.
On account of his advanced age and the
fact that he was evidently not found until
many hours after he had become uncon
scious from the cold and lack of food, his
chances of recovery are regarded as ex
ceedingly small and It Is feared amputa
tion of both legs will be necessary unless
he succumbs at once.
