Omaha Dirt Loadsr la Booth Africa,
.That machinery made in Omaha goes to
all parts' of the civilised world waa
shown again Monday morning, when T.
F. Stroud received a photograph of one
of his large dlrt-movlng machines for
loading dirt into wagons. The picture
waa taken in South Africa and caused
considerable comment at the Commercial
club Monday noon because of the motive
power. Instead of the twelve horsea or
mules which are used In this country two
oxen were used to haul the machine. Mr.
Stroud Insisted on calling them cows.

'The rising 8tar of Bethlehem was tha
rising star of childhood." aald Rev. R.
Scott Hyde, I). D.. at Hanscnm Park Meth
odist Episcopal church Sunday morning.
"With the coming of Christ, childhood
came Into Us own. Prior to this time and
up to Chrlai'a coming, virtue wae scoffed
at, human society waa at Its loweat mural
ebb and childhood atruggled in a precrrlous
existence of hopeless abandonment.
"There la no narrative In universal lit
erature that has exerted tha Interest of thla
simple gospel story from the second chap
ter of Luke., Tha flight of Chrlsfe birth
waa In beautiful harmony with the event,
that of bringing the euprema announce
ment, the tidings of great Joy.
"Christ's coming waa great tidings to the
lowly, for had He been born In a palace
and brought up In luxury Hie life would
have been without Ita great lesson. His
after life was In keeping with Hla birth.
Ha taught the leason that It Is possible for
a man to be virtuous though far removed
from luxury, and that It was possible for
a man to be wealthy without being rich.
His coming was tidings of great Joy to
all who had been born without a sense of
moral responsibility. He came as a Savior
to all men. When He came religion had
lost Its hope, paganism waa waning and
darkness had set In over tha moral world
and It was the night of despair. But His
coming was the Light of Salvation and the
re-birth of Hope.
"His coming promised a moral regenera
tion of the world and brought the tidings
of peace and good will. In the days of
Herod there was no peace. It was an era
cf blood and despair. It Is Impossible for
us to realise .upon what misery the love
blinded eyes of the Holy Light then shone.
I believe that the time will come when
universal peace ehall prevail; when truth
shall at last reign.
"Qoodnesa, kindness, charity and good
will were forgotten when Christ was born.
But with Christ's birth camethat magic
touch that warmed the hearts of the poor
and tha rich, the employer and tha em
ployed, softened the cynicism of tha miser
and the iron hearts of selfish mankind.
"Oh, beautiful day that can so soften the
hearts of the world that It bends all man
kind to the tenderesf emotions of broth
erly love. So say we all. So think, feel
and act we all under the soothing, loving,
sweetening Influences of this blessed
Christmas day and week, that derives its
heavenly Inspiration from the birth of he
Babe of Bethlehem,"

Stealthily tha burglar crept along the
floor of the bed room of James Seymour,
1941 South Seventeenth street, in tha dim
light of early Monday morning. He reached
to a pile of clothing, slipping It Into Ms
bag and turned to creep Into an open cloaet
door. He groped along the floor.
A sudden scream, a howl of pain, elec

and snapped 'on the light In time to see the

Curses and moans of pain echoed along
the hall as the unfortunate burglar aped
away. He bore away with him some

police, as "black, with all but one button
off," 40 cents In change, and lastly, a
mouse trap, valued at 45 cents.
"He cannot be charged with the theft
of that trap owing to the extremely ex

Frank L. Fitchett of Dundee received,
he says, eight blows between the eyes, two
Jolts on the Jaw. three wallops on tha

Fitchett testified to this In county court,
also Imparting the Information that Henry

Balrd la having a hearing on a charge of
assault sworn to by Fitchett.
The alleged aasault took place November
28. on a peaceful Sunday afternoon when all
Dundee Is supposed to be calm.
A chicken had escaped from the Fitchett
menage and Fitchett pursued into the yard
of his next door neighbor.
Then occourred the encounter. It will be
recalled that a short time before this Balrd
had Fitchett arrested and brought to
county court on a charge of discharging a
revolver , without a license. There has
been trouble between the men for a long
time and Fitchett, who Is 71 years of age
and was formerly an Indian agent at the
Santee-Sloux reservation, built a famous
"spite" fence between the two houses,
which are on Caes street between Fiftieth

"Trinity cathedral now occupies a con
spicuous place In tha work of Christianity,
but It is destined for an even greater
place. Trinity cathedral is going to be,
to Omaha, what Grace church la to Chi
cago. It will occupy a more significant
position in ministering to the people. With
the acquirement of the property on Dodge
street we are given means for greater en
deavor. Outside our own church walls we
are given an opportunity for more exten
sive work. '
"In connection with the celebration of
Christmas, then, we have great cause to be
thankful. This is a period of rejoicing.
In the present, however, we are not alone
Interested, for our work lies In the fu
ture." There 'were s peel a! celebrations of the

SOUTH OMAHA. Neb, Dec. 2a To the
Editor of The - Bee: Permit an Innocent
bystander, who is not personall Inter
ested either way In the Bellevue col
lege controversy, to say a few words off
hand. When the people of Iowa decided
to move the capital from Iowa City to Des
Moines, there were some who were senti
mental enough to want to preserve some of
th old memories and old associations in
some fitting manner, and they decided that
th best way to preserve them was by
changing th old state bouse Into an in
stitution of learning, and ao the State Uni
versity of Iowa waa established, with the
old state house as the central building,
and such It Is today after a lapae of half
a century, and many of the great men of
the country have come forth from the por
tals of that great institution to make their
way in the world.
Those were fhe days before greed andJ
graft had ao much Influence in the affairs
of this country, as they do today.

out regard to creed, not want to preserve
