If you happened to need a pencil

"Well, I'll just drop over and buy
one from this blind boy that stands
on the corner," you found, when you
arrived at the corner, that the blind
boy was not there.
"Business as usual" Monday. But
"Blind Walter" was off at the City
mission picnic.

rest, comfort, kindness and everything he
wonted to eat from sandwiches to ice
cream and lemonade.
Walter waa only one of about 600 who
spent the day out at the park. They tot
an early start so as to stay just as lona
as possible. It was but little after
o'clock in the morning' when nine street
cars arrived at Twelfth and Howard
streets where the crowd waa waiting.
These cars were furnished free by the

Miss MeOee was there with many vol

chs the whole police force couldn't have
held them back. It looked like storming
the trenches over in Europe. None of
those klddnes waa taking a chance on
getting left out of the picnic, not after
he had talked about it and dreamed about
it for weeks.

And away went the cars, the" boys
whistling and the girls shouting, little
cripples holding their crutches and emll
irVf "like baskets of chips on the way
t j a bonfire."
iuch a noise I My, it sounded like a
juvenile riot on wheels. But it was the
kind of riot you read about, "a riot of
fun," "a riot of Joy." And the police
men along the route didn't atop the riot.
They Just smiled. And all the people
that saw the nine ears gliding along
smiled, and everybody was glad that the
folks were off for a good time.
Miller park! Nobody needed to be told.
The conductors nearly had heart failure
keeping the kids from Jumping off before
the cars stopped. And then away scam
pered a thousand feet over the grass.
Some of the boys had been there before
and they assumed airs of 'great im
portance, leading their comrades straight
to the lake, where, in a, Jiffy, they were

The girls were soon absorbed In the
delights of "Ring Around a Rosy" and
other girl games. The email babies were
rolling in bliss on the grass, while their
tired mothers Just sat and enjoyed per
feet rest and the good fresh air and the
happiness of their little ones.
A committee of small boys guided
Blind Walter around the park and ex
plained everything to him. He had about
fifty pairs of sharp eyes to see things
for him, and fifty babbling tongues to
explain the beauties of the park.
Then came "the eats," and the way
the aandwlches and potato salad and

le ice cream! It surely didn't have a
lance to melt.

l The Omaha District Epworth League
ivtitute at Ralston, which opened Mon
day, will close Sunday evening with the
devotional services, which will be at
tended by a number if Methodists of
this city and vicinity, besides the Bp
worthians who have been In camp. Most
of the Methodist churcles In the city

tunity of visiting the Institute on the
closing evening.
On Saturday night and Sunday morn
ing the meetings will be addressed by
Kev. W. F. Sheridan, Chicago, general
secretary of the Epworth league.
The institute, it Is asserted, has been
a success. The excellent weather made
camping a real pleasure, about 100 mak
ing their homes in tents at Hillside
park, where the meetings were lie-Id In
an open-air pavilion. Plenty of time
was allowed for recreation, swimming,
boating, tennis and base ball, while the
evenings, after the close ot the services,
were devoted to hikes, wiener roasts, etc.
