Latest Example of .
Omaha's Rapid Push
and Energy Revealed
Omaha Posting Service Perform
Wonderful Feat for The Bee in
Getting 800 Sheets Up.
This Is said to be an a;e of rarld thin,
an age when every other man Is trying
to do something In faster time than his
competitor, or at least trying to get ahead
with a new record. Tn every tine of ?n
deavor the man who can push thlnrs
faater than his competitors is the man
who gets attention and business. Omaha
Is on the map because of the rapid way In
which It Is gettlnr to the front. And It
Is getting to the! front because It has a
live bunch of business men In all Its lines.
Tho most recent example of Omaha rnersrv
has been exhibited by the Omaha Posting
Service, a firm that Is ranked as one of
the leaders In Its line In the west. Us
latent bit of work entitles it to the rank
of Push Colonel.
It was necessary fiatnrrtny for this serv
ice company to get some posters on the
boards for The Bee. The paper R00 sheets
arrived late. It was 10 o'clock In the
morning. Instructions were to the effect
that these sheets all ha1 to be put on the
billboards before nightfall. Could the
Om.tha Posting Bervlce do the work? Could
It do It? Well, look at the result.
With the paper at their command shortly
after 10 o'clock Saturday morning, the men
engaged by this company set to work to
plaster the boards with the bills announc
ing the startling low rate for The Evening
and Sunday Bee. The Bee was to be sold
for 25 cents a month evening and Sunday
editions. The public must know this fact,
murt have It before their eyes before a
new week began. The bill posters were
going through the fastest kind of move
ments before twenty minutes after 10, and
It looked as though all the paper would be
In place before nfc;ht came. And all the
paper was in place. Before the clock
struck. 7 Saturday evening every sheet
every one of the 8i)0 had been plastered
to the boards, and the men who had per
formed the task were goirg home to supper.
As one man expressed his opinion of
this feat, "It waa going some." But this
Is the energy and push that the Omaha
Posting Service shows in all its Jobs. It
gets there with the goods -every time. It
takes orders to perform work rapidly and
efficiently. It does the best kind of work
and has established a name over all the
west. Its men are careful wlth their Jobs
and see that they are neatly done. Rapid,
efficient and neat work are the character
istics which make this firm among the
leaders In this section of the country.

Henry Churchill King, president of Ober
lin college, finished a strenuous day In
Omaha yesterday at a reception and ban
quet given in his honor by the Nebraska
alumni of that Institution at the Paxtnn
hotel. Over sixty listened to a brilliant
address from President King on "The Chal
lenge that Our Mtern Age Throws Down
to our Educational Institutions."
Two toasts preceded President King's ad
dress. Mrs. F. P. ioomls spoke on "Per
sonal Contact," laying importance upon It
presence In all education . and. asking for
smaller classes. "Modern Oberlin" was the
subject taken and enlarges upon by the
Rev. James A. Jenkins, praising It In Its
equipment, . Its faculty and Its align
ment with modern educational tendencies.
Charle O. McDonald acted as toastmaster.
Dr. King devoted some time to Oberlin,
the present condition of the college and the
great things planned for it, but he soon
swung Into the larger aspect of the college
In the modern world. He outlined the tre
mendous growth of the world In- Its many
phases, especially in the economic.
No Nation Stands Alone.
"The economic solidarity of the world
has become such," he said, "that no na
tion can be isolated. The inter-dependence
of men is greater than anyone thinks. Th
complexity of things is astounding, as are
the different problems that arise out of it.
The challenge of the modern world to
educational institutions is to turn out men
Into the world life, who are unselfish a
well as Intelligent."
Talk to Teacher.
"Respect for Personality" waa tha them
of the -address delivered by Dr. King be-
rore the Omaha school teacher at the
Young Woman's Christian .rw.-iti
Tuerday afternoon, and the responsibility
of the teacher was directed to the preser
vation of a dedicate consideration for the
child's own self.
"No force is more potent In hlstorv th.n
reverence for personality," said Dr. King.
"It seems to me that it Is absolutely the
dominating foree In life. A person can
never be treated solely as a means, a per
sonallty Is always to some, degree an end
"Reverence for personality means first
of all elf-reverence; not self-conceit nor
self-depreciation. A man has a right to
believe that he has a message given him.
He will, on the other hand, constantly
remember how great a gift Is given him
through others and will remember that
each other man has also his own message.
"What I Worth While.
"What Is really worth while, as I de
fined It for a student once, is to enjoy as
we may character. Influence and happiness
What your claim Is on life for yourself Is
the measure of your obligations to other
men. When a man fails to speak his
own message a given to him by Ood he
falls In character. Bo a man'g character
depend upon his self-reverence.
"Influence as the second element of what
Is worth while dofnands self-reverene. W
owe lo. our friends a "growing personality
and enriched and enlarged friendship and
we owe It to them to be always Improving
our own selves. Respect for another
means respect for hla liberty and 'for his
personality.. Tou cannot hold another man
a slave or hold him too closely to your
own Ideals f9r.hlm without .being .a.slav
yourself. I believe that every human being
ha a right to make his own blunders and
right to a sphere In which he can. work
In his. own way. .. . .
Bvery Mfe I Solitary.
, Did you ever think how very solitary,
after all. our Inner life must be? That Is
what drives us- back to God. Not even
those who are closest to us can completely
understand us. Bo, if you teachers are to
come into the cTiild s Inner life, you CRnnot
go without the child's own permission.
You cannot expect a child to feel this
sense of reverence for qther unlee It la
shown for him.
"In the most beautiful live there la
even in the most intimate relationships
delicate conslderatlou for the sanctity of
another's personality; . I think of the man
who, aa he lay dying, said to his wife -in
