"Man Is the only created thin that Is a
brute to hid offspring. Man alone wilfully
kllla Mi children," wan a statement made
by Rev. Robert B. II. Bell, rector of f the
Good Bhepherd Episcopal church. In hla
wrmon yesterday morning, whose text ha
took from Mark lx:42. In part he said: '

Kataro of Proposed Law.
There Is before the senate a new child
labor law drawn up by Judge Kennedy and
Mr. Pennock, which you have read about.
Do you know that thla law alma at three
things, namely: Give the child a chance,'
health and morality. The state demands
that all children be given a chance to fit
themselves t6 lighten their burden and
to become more efficient cltisens. The law
alms at tha health of the child In that no
child may work under any condition In
any place that la conducive to Illness or
permanent injury. But, chiefly of all, the
child la not allowed to work at an occu
pation that will tend to the moral destruc
tion of the lit tie one. No child can deal
out whisky bottles or even put the corks
in mem. no cnua is allowed to run a
message to a house of pollution.
"Thank God for auch a law, but shame
that such a law I needed.
"I do not see how this proposed law can
have an enemy. Is It too arbitrary ? No,
It la not. There are conditions In this law
that may be altered to suit the child that
must make h'la own living or support a
feeble mother. I read this all In this law.
But the law Is uncompromising In regard
to health and morale, it Is right that It
should be ao. A curse rests upon tha men

WADS WORTH IDEAL COLLEGES
President of Bellevae Tells Meaning;
of Proverb, "Get Wisdom."
President Guy W. Wadsworth of Bellerue
college preached from the pulpit of the
First Congregational church Sunday morn
ing. He spoke from the text, "Wisdom la
the principal thing, therefore get wisdom."
Proverbs iv, 7.
"The second Sabbath In February haa
been set apart aa the day of prayer for
students In the colleges and universities
of the whole world," said Dr. Wadsworth,
"and this brings me to the subject of the
Ideal college. The chief elements to be
sought In the Christian college are char
acter, culture and knowledge, and the
possibility of bringing the students of the
world toward thte advancement of the
kingdom of God.
"The popular impression of the college
is that It la a sort of reservoir of knowl
edge Into which the student must get and
absorb therefrom all the knowledge h can
hold. I believe the average college presi
dent of today. If he were required to take
the examination for the freshman class aa
Is required today, would fall In the ex
amination unless he could have some weeks
for preparation that he might refresh him
self. "The greatest of the essentials of college
life Is the development of character. A
misapplied education had better never been
acquired where Its use Is applied to tear
down rather than build up. Education
without religion makes man an Intellectual
devil. Education should be applied to
make the man more of a man. Character
is better than reputation. The chief pur
pose of life Is to get right with God. The
chief purpose of the college Is to produce
character. Lincoln was a man who was
hla. own college. Ha was a man who could
not be kept down by any lack of educa
tion. His was the education, self-made, of
character. The college member, while ha
must have knowledge, must also have
"Colleges should have Christian men on
their faculties. The Bible is the greatest
of text books. It is great In every element
of poetry, art and literature. Any college
that belittles the Bible is not a fit place
for our young men to be. The essentials
of 'wisdom are knowledge, culture and
character, therefore let us get wisdom."

"The certainty and Comfort of Christ's
Coming-" waa the subject of Rev. P. H.
McDowell's sermon at Immanuel Baptist
church yesterday morning.
'No teaching looms so large, no doctrine
is so profoundly emphasised in the Bible
aa that of the coming of Christ," aald Rov.
Mr. McDowell. "It was significantly em
phasised in the four states of Christ on
earth. His, birth, death, resurrection' and

The King of Love," by iMlssea Francisco

were rendered unusually well. Rev. Dr.
Frailer of Pennsylvania preached on "For
Moses Knew Not That the Bkln of His Face

Lord Had Departed from Him.," and said:
Mosea, In his wonderful communion with
God, had acqiuerd that atrange radiance of

no other mortal, and glorious aa ha ap

Samson's experience waa different. "Ha

Iarsre Asaemfclaae altk Ilea
A play of powerful human Interest la
"The Pit," presented twice yesterday at
the Krug. Channlng Pollock's adaption of
Frank Norrie' popular novel Is In this
Instance In the hands of William A. Brady's
company, which gave general satisfaction
yesterday, the lnterest being sustained
from tha opening lines' until tha curtain
goea down on a ruined trader of the "pit,"
who finds success In failure. In that ha
comes to a true realisation of the strength
of the love hla wife holda for him. but
which love he allowed to die out while ha
gamboled and gambled In precincts not
made for a man of his type. That man la
Curtis Jadwln. which role is portrayed by
Wright Huntington, an actor with a keen
appreciation of the possibilities of hla part.
Tha heroine la Laura Dearborn, a woman
who loves to be loved, and who In tha end
finds more happiness with Jadwln, ruined
in business and penniless, then she did In
the daya of hla wealth. Laura Dearborn
la played by Mabel Carruthera, a woman
with aome histrionic attainments. Herbert
Warren as Sheldon Cortbell, who fills tha
aching void of Laura Dearborn's life with
his snave personality, enacts his part well,
while James Edwards aa Calvin Hardy
Crookes, who ruins other men In the wheat
pit, la acceptable.
Tha play la replete with thrilling climaxes
and effective atage pictures. Tha vagariea
of wheat speculation are presented in a
popular way, with a strong love Interest
to bind tha atory. The play In Itaelf
preaches something of a moral to Krug
patrons to eschew tha tempter which lurka
In the wheat pit and to value a woman'a
love mora than the mere struggle for gold
which blinds the eyea at tha browsing
Iambs that flock to the pit and are dashed
on the precipices below. .
The present engagement will cloaa with
thla evenlng'a performance.
"Brother Ofllccre" at tha Birwood.
Additional laurels .were gained Sunday by
the Woodward stock company at the Bur-
wood by its admirable presentation of the
fell known comedy drama entitled
Brother Officers." The play la what might
be termed a douche on tha aspirations of
those who try to rise above the circum
stances in which they are unhappily placed
by birth, the evident Intention of the
author being to give the Impression that a
man not born to tha purple cannot hope
to attain such a atatlon In Ufa by later
Three acta are taken to tell tha atory.
which is full of pathos, and tha action la
well sustained throughout. Although yclept
a comedy-drama, the element of levity la
kept religiously In the background, but
the play affords ample opportunity to each
member of the cast. The settings ara out
of the ordinary and the whole production
augurs for another entertaining week for
the patrona of the Burwood.
Tha atory deals with tha tribulations and
self-sacrifice of a lieutenant In tha British
army, who haa risen from tha ranks of life
aa well aa of tha army. The lieutenant
haa aaved the life of a brother officer, and
later aavea hla honor at the sacrifice of
personal revenge ' upon the man who dia
gramed hla mother. Mr; Morrison haa an
unusually difficult part in 'tha character
of Lieutenant John Hinds, who waa bom
of obscure parents and whoae mother left
home with a gambler. Hlnda aavea tha
life of hla brother officer, who repays his
kindness by unwittingly falling' In love
with a woman of high atatlon whom Hlnda
has also learned to love. Tha vital action
of tha play htngea on the sacrifice dls
played by Hlnda in hiding his affection
because he cannot aspire to tha hand of
the lady on account of hla obscure parent'
age. Incidentally aaving tha honor of hla
rival and friend by freeing him from a
gambling debt Incurred with tha man who
wronged Hinds' mother and had since be
come a millionaire.
Mr. Morrison la tha Ideal hero and Miss
Pitt makes a strong bid for further favor
by her enactment of tha part of Lady
Roydon, whose charma have captivated the
brother offlcera. Mr. Schoneld and Mr.
Hartford, and Misses MaycUff, Martin and
Hill have strong parts and do well In their
Vaadevllle at tha Orphean.
Two lively aketchea of mora than ordl
nary merit and Bert Levy, the artist who
graphically reproduces everything worth
mentioning in currant events, make up a
trio of star numbers In tha Orpheum bill
thla week. May Tully and company have
a happy role In their one act play, "Stop,
Look and Listen." The skit la developed
out of tha possibilities of a small country
railroad atatlon with an actress, a country
girl and a rustic awaln as tha moving
spirits. Besldea affording no end of fun
in tha play, Mlaa Tully added to tha en
tertainment with a number of 1 in persona

play te well staged by Harry LeonhardC

Miss Ruth Grey entered upon a second
week of her mystery-show at tha Lyrto
theater Sunday, and hundreds of people
who wanted her to tell them what they al
ready knew and many things they stIU had
to learn attended the two entertainments.
Women have proved by far tha mora num
eroua In tha audience, tha curiosity of tha
members of the gentler aex to know what
tha future haa In store, drawing them to
Miss Grey's performances with Irresistible
force, and all through tha week, especially
at matlnuua, the female portion of Omaha's
population haa been much In evidence at
the little theater.
Miss Grey continues to surprise, awe and
even (rtochten with her revelations of things
supposed to be wholly secret. The history
of every member of her audience seems to
be at tha end of her tongue, and her fore
casts for tha future seem no mora wonder

SKIP DUNDY IN EASTERN EYES
Brook Ira Eagle Prlata Estimate at
Ma Who Made Laaa Park
Tha death of Elmer 6, (Skip) Dundy In
New York laat week took up ootumna In
tha papera of that city aa well aa others,
and it waa tha subject of editorial utter
ances. Old friends In Omaha, where Dundy
waa reared, may get from tha following
editorial In tha Brooklyn Eagle an Idea of
what sober Journals have to aay of him:
The death of Elmer S. Dundy removee
a man known to few Brooklyn people, but
who haa done more for Brooklyn than have
men of far greater reputation. Mr. Dundy
was a partner In the amusement firm of
Thompson A Dundy, and that Arm began
the regeneration of Coney Inland by build
ing their Luna Park there. Luna Park
demonstrated that there waa mora money
In clean and wholesome amusements at
Coney Island than In the shady resorts
which either dodgnd the police or existed
by police sufferance. Tha success of Luna
l'arn made Dreamland Inevitable, and the
two great, picturesque out-of-door resorts
made Coney Island the greatest, the most
picturesque and one of the most harmless
amusement resorts on the face of the earth.
The names of Luna Park and of the Hip
podrome are known the whole world over.
They are the two greateet amusement en
terprises of their kind In the world. With
the names of the creations the name of the
firm which created them has achieved a
certain prominence, but the personalities
of the men who made the firm have been
enveloped In that shadow In which the real
snowman ao often chooses to stand while
he dasslea the world with hla creations.
The atage la the land of Illusions, and to
most people the whole stage world is en
veloped in a haae of romance. The Hip
podrome and Luna Park became famous
because they projected Illusions unon a
scale of .magnitude which had never before
been dreamed of. Their success was pos
sible because the two partners who created
them were so fully complementary of each
other. Thompson was the Inventive and
artistic genius. The wlsardry of his crea
tions waa recognised ry artists aa well as
by the general public, and so he has
achieved a certain amount of the fame
which waits upon tha successful artist or
inventor. But Dundy was the financial
genius, without whose capacity for inspir
ing confidence and securing money the
plans of his partner' must have remained
merely the dreams of a half mad genius.
Once the money waa found .to realise theae
things upon tha scale on which their In
ventor saw them, he was found to bs emin

unusual .oraer or mina, junt as the power
to put enterprises requiring ao large a

table wo have our gas study lamp, which, with its deep red shade,
casts a delightfully restful glow over all and, you know, we can

There had been no provision mads for heating this room,
but John got one of those little gas beaters, with a rubber tube
which attaches to the gas Jet- And, best of all, It does not Inter

city. Notwithstanding tha large deposit of
the city funda, they were In no ways a
permanent fund. Moat of the money came
from the Bale of city aecurttlea. TJie av
erage for tha two montha before December
of last year waa $300,000. Of thla amount
1260,000 waa from the aale of the sewer
bonds, $GS,000 was the amount remaining
of the city call fund after the purchase of
tha city hall site at tl,S2S; $3,000 waa tha
amount In the Missouri avenue paving fund.
Deducting thla from tha full amount, the
normal deposit would be only $21,000. Thla
haa been tha usual average of the deposit.
With the close of tha year and tha pay
ment of tha annual tax levy of couree this
waa swelled to a much greater figure, aa it
la every year. But notwithstanding thla
tha deposits ara not unusually large if the
funda which have been raised, for special
purposes ara taken out. South Omaha haa
ample funds, but the impression that there
la a great overplua In tha treasury of tha
city la an error.
