ADVENTURE OF LADY URSULA AT BURWOOD
Pretty Rnminri' by Hone Farewell

"The Cow Poacher" at
Two crowds, determined to visit the Or-
phriim theater once more before It clnsi
for the season, as one of the signs that
Hummer la supposed to be not far distant,
attended both performances Sunday, stand-
I ,i K room being In demand before the cur
tain rose. And a a fitting obaervance of
the occasion, a program with sufficient
luster to Bhlne through the days to come
when the Orpheum will be dark, was given,
the bill having aome particularly good num
bers, and none that failed of enthusiastic
applause. Among them were some acts out
fif the ordinary.
Nut the "least" of the offerings was an
act In witch the principals bore much
"we.rfht" in the successful presentation
of On tifie. In fact the two looked well
alM to tip the scales at 500 pounds to

The political and other serious questions
of the day are discussed In this week's
program, and far from being the dry, al
most forbidding number It promises from
the description, It Is the most mlrth-pro-voklng
part of the program. Cliff Gordon
presents himself aa a German politician
who seeks to enlighten the American
"pimple" on matters in the house of "rep
resent the thieves" and other parts of the
world, and often becomes so full of en
thusiasm, which word nearly ties him tn a
knot, that he chokes In his effort to bring
out the burning words. It Is a roar of
laughter from start to finish.
swimming tank full of Missouri river

shore stunt of diving and tricks under

performance can be seen. But In order to
be seen themselves the two swimmers are
obliged to press close to the edge to show
they are not "faking." They eat. drink,
whirl, and sleep for minutes under water,
comprising an act of feats much out of
the usual run and truly meritorious. But

Dorothy Kenton plays the banjo with

Klngsley and Lewis, "After the Honey

of solid enjoyment and a mlschevlous
helper spoils things for a conjuror, dis
closing his "tricks" In his Imitations of his
master, in a comedy trick performance by
the Two Ftanclscos.
On Saturday night, which will be the
final night of the season, Manager Belter
has arranged for a big amateur program

"Lady Trials" at the Bur-wood. '
As a farewell to the patrons of the Bur
wood the present stock company, soon to
be transferred to Kansas City, presents
Anthony Hope's pretty romance, "The Ad
venture of Lady Ursula," as the bill for
the week. Like most of HoDt'i stories,
the romantic element predominates almost
to the exclusion of everything else. The
piny is beautiful rather than strong.
The story Is built up around a prank
of Lady Ursula Harrington In attempting
to gain entrance to the house of Sir
George Sylvester, who has sworn never
to see the face of a woman. 8ba falls
and Is sent by Sir George to the porter's
lodge, an insult which Lady Ursula's
brother, the earl of Hasaenden, resents.
To save her brother from a dual with
Sir George, who is a practiced swordsman.
Lady Ursula engages In another adventure
more startling than the first by donning
the clothes of a younger brother and gain
ing entrance to Sir George's apartments
for a private Interview with him. She
succeeds In this guise In warding off the
duel, but complicates matters worse than,
ever, escaping only by the courteajr of Sir
George a duel herself with pistols. Of
course the ending Is typically Hope's, and
Sir George and the fair Lady Ursula pledge
each other their troth as the final curtain
is rung down.
Mr. Morrison haa the part of Sir George
and Miss Pettes that of Lady Ursula, both
of them In rolee peculiarly suited to their
talents. The third act presents the strong
est scene of the piny, culminating In the
situation that almost ends In the dues be
tween Sir George and the dlagulshrd Lady
Ursula. George Phelps as the earl of

And the same fate overtook many of
Jim's "pals" In the four-act "Oow
runcher" drama which was presented
twice at the Knig Sunday. It Is a story
of the golden west and bears about the
same relaUon to "The Virginian" as Tncle
Tom does to Old Black Joe. Instead of a
school teacher going west and marrying
a cowboy. It was a young woman doctor
who did It and "9om Lawton was the lucky
cowboy. Tne scenes are laid In Mexico,
and Mexicans "r-ie more or less In the
plot. Carlos M.udoza, a Mexican cattle
"rustVr," and Ms hand steal the heroine
and another girl. Carlo wants the hero
ine for himself, but the other members of
the band decide the two women will hinder
them in getting over the line with the
stolen cattle, and they decide to shoot
them both. Here Is where Tom Lwton
gets the chance to show his heroism, for
at the critical moment he arrives, unarmed,
and offers to sacrifice his life for theirs.
As he Is a deadly enemy to the outlaws,
his proposition Is readily accepted. But of
course he, too, Is saved Just In the nick
of time, but not, however, till after one
of the noisiest. If not the bloodiest battle
ever pulled off In the Krug theater, has
been fought. The play Is thoroughly typ
ical of life In the far west. If not aa It Is. at
least as It was. In the first act, when one
of the cowboys say: "I have my own
private grave yard, and It Is so full I have
to bury them standing up," one thinks It
Is meant for a Joke. But before the cur
tain drops upon the scene of carnage In
the third act, the audience fully realises
that it was no Joke. The performance will
be repeated Monday, Tuesday and Wednes
day, with the usual matinee.

out together from Casey's In Chicago to

feet deep on the level, and they were both
tickled almost to death to see one another.
Particularly were signs of gladness appar

to say nothing of thirsty, but McDonough
only thanked his lucky stars that he should
be the one to go to his friend's aid In
that, his time of need.
It was late before the need had been
filled, but the good Samaritan still had $30
left when they at last stumbled Into a
lodging house for a bed. They both took
lodging tn the same bunk and McDonough
was not long In getting busy with the
sleep which comes to him with the con

hand to a fallen brother.

Sabbath morning to find the rain pouring

From Pacific C neat lie Brines
lesson of Faith la God
as the Essential
rtev. James M. Wilson of Westminster
Presbyterian church, Seattle, occupied his
old pulpit In Castellar Presbyterian church
Sunday morning and was greeted with a
very large congregation.
Dr. Wilson originally came to Omaha as
a graduate of McCormlck Theological sem
inary tn 18NS and Castellar church was his
first charge and lie Its first pastor. Here he
found a struggling little church and by his
energy succeeded In building It up Into one
of the most thrifty organizations of the
city He continued aa pastor for thirteen
years and then went from Omaha to Boul
der, Colo., which place he left four years
ago to accept the call of the Westminster
church of Seattle. Dr. Wilson wa married
while In Omaha and Mrs. Wilson will be
remembered aa a woman of exalted Chris
In his sermon Sunday morning Dr. Wil
son paid a pathetic tribute to his wife, who
died Christmas eve after an Illness 'of
about a year and a half. He expressed his
deep and loving appreciation of their old
Omaha friends for their sympathy on that
occasion and the tribute of flowers sent
Here Faith la God.
Dr. Wilson spoke from the text Mark xl.,
"Have Faith In Ood." After expressing
the pleasure he enjoyed to meet so many
of his old friends and referring Incidentally
to the growth of the Christian spirit on
the Pacific coast. Dr. Wilson said:
"Jesus stood In the wreck of the great
est religion the world had ever known, the
wreck of Judealsm and formalism. He
knew that their failure was from the lack
of faith In Ood and His message to them
Is of the same potent force today and Is
directed to the church, the minister and
the home. Remember the parable of the
flg tree. He came to the fig tree expect
ing fruit and found nothing but leaves.
The semblance was there, but there wae
no truth in It. It was so when He went to
the temple where He expected to find the
scribes and Pharisees performing a faithful
religious duty, but Instead found only pro
tense. He comes to the church and home
today and expects the fruit of truth and
faith. But does He find them? He should
find these things In the church whose roots
are drenched In His blood.
"You come to church to hear the truth
and learn the meaning of the true faith.
That Is what the church Is for and that
Is what you nave the right to expect.
When Christ came there was a decadence
In the vital powers of Israel. Centuries
afterward come the age of rationalism In
Germany and the age of moderation In Eng
land. So spiritual decadence comes In
epochs and they will come when the spirit
of faith and truth Is lacking.
Walk Too Much by Light.
In this modern day we aso too prone
to walk by light rather than by faith. The
reason that men take their lives is be
cause of their lack of faith In Ood. Faith
can move mountains. What we need Is a
rennalsance of faith, a re-blrth of faith.
Christ has said met) shall not live by bread
alone, but by faith.
The persecutions of the apostles ceased
In Rome and Constantino (Rome's greatest
emperor acknowledged Jesus as the King
of Kings. The prayers and faith of John
Hues, of Savonarola, of Luther have been
aswered. The prayer at Valley Forge was
answered at Torktown. The prayer of hu
manity for the abolition of slavery was
answered at Appomattox.
There are more good people In the
world than ever before; true there Is also
more Iniquity, but there also exists greater
Christian forces to combat this Iniquity."
DR. MA SATS WORLD IS NOT LOST
Combats the Theory of Cnl-rer.al Con
demnation by Original Sin.
Is It a Lost World?" was the theme of
Rev. Newton Mnn at Unity church Sun
day morning and elaborate arguments
were given to prove that such an argu
ment was partially, at leant fallacious.
It Is the custom of many religions to
call this world a lost world," said Mr.
Mann. "It has been said that even the
heavens seem to have been tainted with
the sin of our first parents. Upon all
visible things Is set the Invisible condemna
tion 'corrupted by Adam's sins.' Other
planetary worlds not lost. If there be such,
ought to act different from this world, but
they do not. All the other planets are
apparently made of the same sort of stuff
as the world and have to pass through the
same processes of development. Believers
In original sin have argued that only the
human world and that only on the out
side has fallen.
It appears to many thinkers that man Is
morally lost. If this is correct it Is no less
melancholy than the old thought that this
Is a lost world, for If man Is lost the
world might as well bo lost the one lost
object In the universe.
"One of the ways to avoid such a con
clusion is that Ood did not make man as
he now exists. This fallacy has gained
considerable force, but the Idea that Ood
made the first man and has had nothing
to do with the rest of the race Is unthink
able folly. There la for the thelst no es
cape from the fact that this world In which
we live was made by Ood That the hu
man world Is faulty does not Imply that
It Is wholly lost At the first Ood made
It and there is no reason to believe that
He was ever disappointed with His work,
for He has an eye to the future. Evolu
tion is the keynote of physical existence
and for 600,000 years, more or less, msn haa
be.n Improving and dropping some brutish
trail each year.
"Ood did not make the world In a day
ties he has used from flret to last. With
the hand of man He Is irrigating the
desert, building homes and magnificent
structures, and connecting the oceans
with mighty railroads and canals. Ood
was never more active upon this globe than
now and when we consider what time and
energy haa been spent in bringing the
world to its present condition we are com
pelled to think that the early world must
have been a moot uninviting place.
"To our narrow visions the depravity
stalking around now among us is shocking
and It is not strange that Innate depravity
should find credence when we see the fraud
In basmesa, misrepresentation and duplicity
at the bar and in the pulpit as well aa In
other walks of lire.
"But let no one despair of mankind and
Imagine that this Is a lost world. No such
depressing thought wss ever set forth aa
that of the fall of man and the consequent
depression of the human race.
"Looked at from any point a los't world

Rev. Adolf ' Hult's Initial sermon, as

The text for the Sunday was In St. John,
It chapter, verses 23-33, constituting a part I
of Christ's farewell conference with His
disciples, and the theme was: "How the
Prayer In Jesus Name Makes True Chris
tian's happiness complete." He oald In
"We often forge the power of a sincere
prayer. To thinkj;that a poor sinner can
ask for anything'.. of that he is in need
from our Lord God., but only In the name
of Jesus Christ. No power nor assurance
of fulfillment of our prayero unless they
are in the name cf Jesus. Only those that
pray In Jesus name have a promise to be
heard. Stop and consider the grand
thought that we unworthy sinners can go
to our dear Bavlour with all our tribula
tions. If we cannot always believe that
Ood. will hear our prayero, we must not
forget that the promise Is there, and our
unbelief does not change God's words.
"By this same prayer In Jesus name we
conquer all our enemies and at all times aa
we pray in the name of the only True Con
querer, we should be victorious as He is
the only one that came out Victorious.
"If prayer in Jesus' name is such a
power, why are we not more of a praying
people? Are you a praying Christian? Are
you a praying congregation? If we pray
more our blessing would bo more abun

Without the display of gorgeous mil
linery creations which characterizes the
day In this country under the Gregorian
calendar, the Greek Easter was celebrated
by 'the colony from the little country be
side the Mediterranean In Omaha yester
day and Steve Gynocopolus didn't bend
over dusty shoes In the shining parlors or
vend his fruits or flowers as on other
days. That was about the only sign of
a holiday visible to the ordinary observer,

noticed something unusual about the
groups of ' black-eyed, black-haired men,
women and boys standing on the streets or
wending their ways toward the parks.
For the Greek population In Omaha Is
not large enough to have any organization
or church of Its own and when the Easter
of the Orthodox Greek church comes
around, the observance consists mainly In
ceasing all labor and seeking such pleasures
as are at fcwrtd. This Includes visiting from
house to house and going to the parks.
