SOCIETY'S WORK HAS SCOPE

The Omaha delegates to the Christian
Endeavor Societies' convention that was
held In Beatrice last week met Monduy
night In the North Presbyterian church
at Twenty-fourth and Wirt streets. Also
there were friends' of tho delegates prcs
nt, and between them a very pleasant
evening was spent In recounting their
victory, chanting their yells, singing
thotr "rooting" songs and In listening to
A. J. Bhartle ot Boston and Rev. H. If.
R6ttman of Portland, Ore. It was what
they termed an "echo" meeting ot tho
convention at Beatrice.
Mr. Bhartle ot Boston is publishing
manager for- the' World Wide Christian
Endeavor, "lie gave a talk on" 'the work
of Chris tjan Endeavorers and pointed 'out
means by which the society may do
greater good. -
"I Would not belong to a Christian En
deavor society If Its, work ended at the
close of the prayer meeting," he said, In
part, "f would not belong to such an
organization If It hierely met once every
so often Just 'to moot and to be met. Un
less there Is some good done to others
outside the society, If the work ends at
the final dismissal and the members go
home, finish out the week and come rack
for tne meeting without, haying accom
plished anything, I should be wasting my

little more, life ntd these meetings and
then accomplish something outside the
Rev. If. II. Rottman then spoke of the
good that has been accomplished by the
society, He gave a vlyid' illustration by
recounting a story of an English regi
ment, serving' in the Boer war, and how
almost the entire regiment formed itself
Into a Christian Endeavor society.
"At a certain battle volunteers were
called for in the night to- scale a prec
Iplce," he said, in part, "behind which
the Boers were entrenched. The object
was to fjnd the condition of the country
beyond tho entrenchment As the volun
teers for this" dangerous task passed the
camp someone said, '1M,' a little later
someone said, 'SOO.' Now, 1H' and '300'
wero the numbers .of songs in their books,
and the men went away humming church
hymns on a mission that seemed certain

safety and were ready In the morning
for the attack.'.'

,As predicted last Monda eventng by
President ot the City Council Tom Alton
the disorderly house ordinance was turned
down last evening by the city council,
Alton and Williams voting In favor or the
measure and the mayor looking anxiously
on. The disorderly house ordinance was
a neatly devised little scheme for extract
ing the teeth of the Slocumb law, which
makes It mandatory for the police board
to take away the license ot a saloonman
who breaks tho liquor laws of the state.
The Slocumb law or the Albert law has
never caused any one In South Omaha to

Epidemic ot Fever.
Superintendent N. M. Graham yester
day ordered five public schools closed on
account of scarlet fever and diphtheria
and publicly stated that he needed the
assistance of the Hoard of Health In
order tp escape an epidemic among the
children pt the schools. Within the last
few weeks there have been several deaths
from scarlet fever and diphtheria, accord
ing to Superintendent Oraham. Accord
ing to Mr. Graham several of the families
having the contagion In their home have
sent children to school without going
through a fumigating process.
As a result a number of children in
five schools of the city have contracted
the diseases and have exposed others to
the contagion without Interference on
the part ot the health authorities, It Is
Yesterday Superintendent Graham
cloacd Brown Park, Madison, Franklin,
West Side and Jungmann schools In
orafr to allow tho buildings to be
fumigated. Superintendent Oraham said
yesterday evening; "Wo need the as
sistance of the health authorities to en
force the laws of quarantine and sanita
tion in d?allng with these diseases. The
school authorities are doing all In their
power to keep out children exposed to
contagion, but the health authorities
should look to the quarantine and sani
tation laws and their enforcement at the
homes of some of the children."
