History of the Church.
In the early part of the year 18S6 It was
thought by residents of what was then
the north part of Omaha than an English
Lutheran church should be established
in that purt of the city. In May of the
same year an English Lutheran Sunday
school was organized In a hall over a
store at Twenty-fourth and Clark streets,
with a membership at the beginning of
: forty-six. In the same room, December
I J, 1SS6, the St. Mark's Evangelical
I Lutheran church, was organized with
twenty-four charter members, of which
number at present four remain as regular
attendants. A frame chapel was built at
Twenty-first and Burdctte streets, and
June, 18R7i the congregation moved into
this. Theso people are now located in a
modern brick building, seating capacity
2-"0- at Twentieth and Hurdetto streets,
into1 which they moved March,
During the twenty-five years this or
ganization has existed there have been
enrolled 2r2 as members, twenty-four of
1 which have been taken away by death
and seventy-six by removal, leaving the
'present membership 162. Five pastors
liave served these people:
Rev. Oeorge H. Pchnur, August, lb&s to
Kev. J. G. Griffith. January, 1S30, to
Kev. J. S. Detwllcr, April, 8!2, lo De

American Flag on
of W.O.W. Building
The first of the. eteel columns for the
eighteenth and last story of the Woodmen
of the World building is hoisted into
place and as workmen fastened the rivets
in the upright, an American flag broke
out from the top of the great metal beam,
.50 feet above the curb line.
The placing of the balance of the stel
for the eighteen story of the building
will be completed this week. This marks
a record In steel construction, not only
In Omaha, but in the United States.

the contract under the Selden, Breck Con
struction company, general contractors,
commenced the wrecking of the old Mil
ton Rogers three-story building July 11
Excavations for the foundation soon com
menced and October 19, the first Pteel
column was placed. Since then the work
has progressed night and day.

Expenses of City
Smaller. Next Year
Pursuant to the demand at the city
council luads of departments of city gov
ernment are preparing estimates of the
expenditures necessary to maintain their
offices and departments during the next
A few officials have completed their
estimates and announce that, without
hindering the work of their departments,
the expenses for 1P12 will be less than In
1911. More money will be demanded by
some departments which have felt the
burden of smaller appropriations than
were needed this year, but the aggregate
amount to be expended will not pass
Jl.OOO.OOO, the cost of the city's govern
ment each year.
During the last week in December the
finance committee of the council wlU
meet and pass on the estimates and fine'
action will be taken on them the second
week in January.
Abundance of Snow EXPERT GAS REPORT READY
Assures Good Flow
for Irrigated Lands
Farmers and ranchers throughout Wyo
ming, Nebraska and South Dakota and
other western sections where irrigation
furnishes the water supply for crops are
Jubilant over the out Inert for next year.
These reports Indicate that the snow fad
in the mountains to the west, up to date,
Is the heaviest ever known.
Throughout the mountain dlstilct of
Wyoming, Montana. Idaho and Colorado,
as a rule, prior to January, there Is little
snow. This year, however, this rule has
been reversed and during November and
the first few days of December there lias
been an Immense quantity of snow. In
portions of Wyoming It has been so
heavy that wild anlnmls hnve been driven
even out of the foothills to the plain.
In many localities It Is 'estimated that
up to this time the snowfall for Novem
ber and December aggregated two feet,
while the normal to this date Is less than
one foot. While there has been much
snow, the weather has not been as cold
Railroad men report another full of
snow through Illinois and over much of
eastern Iowa. It Is said that at this
time In central Illinois the snow Is eight
Inches deep and that Weighing Is the best
In years. This snow Is snld to extend as
far south as Springfield and north pretty
we'.l up Into Wisconsin.

Stocks of merchandise in the stores are
noy at their best and sales-people can
