TELLS OF METHODS
IN SUNDAY SCHOOLS
Specialist in Teaching of Children
Telli Teacher to Lead Way
MANY YOUTHS NOT IN CHURCH
Before an audience made up almost
entirely of mm and women who arc
teaohtra in the Sundar schools of the ciljr
and on that completely filled the au
ditorium of the Tounir Women's Chrla
tlan association building yesterday after
noon, Mis Alice Oamlln, Sunday school
specialist of the Sunday party, spoks on
Sunday school work.
Mint Oamlln told of the Sunday school
work done last week by her and the
members of the party In a number of
the local churches, announcing; that It Is
to be continued during; the remainder of
the campaign and that this week It will
be conducted In the Central Park, Wal
nut Hill, Pearl and Grove Evangelical
churches. She announced that the Sun
day school rally for today will be held
In the First Congregational, twelvs of
the churches participating.
The address of Miss Oamlln was a
plain talk to the Sunday school teachers,
she asserting that their aim should be to
lead boys and girls to Christ. She csu
tloned the teachers not to refer to the
members of their classes as children, as
the young folks resent this appelation,
much preferring to be called boys and
girls, regardless of their size and ages.
The speaker contended that men or
women should not be teachers, especially
teachers In Sunday schools, unless they
love boys and girls, "for," she added, "If
you do not love them, there Is something
wrong with you. "The best thing about
milk Is the cream," asserted Miss Uam
lin, "and this should apply in the Sunduy
school, for there you find the cream, and
It rests with you to mould the character
of the future men and women." She
serted that she has no use for a Sunday
school teacher who conducts a class for
a long period of time and does not lead
the members to Christ and cause, them
to unite with the church which they at
tend. She. cited an Instance of one
teacher whom she knew who taught a
class for years and never even asked
the boys and girls If they were Chris
tians. "Ask the boys and girls of your
classes If they do not desire to lead
Christian lives; pray with them and ex
tend to them the invitation to become
members of the church."
Should Join harrh While Yoona"
In referring to the age at which chil
dren should become members of a church.
Miss Gamlin took the position that at 8,
10 or 12 they are perfectly competent to
decide for themselves and that at these
ages it Is much easier to lead them to
Christ than after they are 16, 18 or older.
Referring to Omaha statistics with
reference to attendance. Miss Gamlin as
serted that In the schools of the city the
enrollment is around 33,000. About half
this number attend Sunday schools, while
the others remain away. She contended
that this presents one of the greatest
opportunities that Christian workers
could conceive In the matter' of winning
souls to Christ.
Upon the Sunday school teachers, con
tended Miss Gamlin, rests almost entirely
.the responsibility of bringing young per
, sons Into th church and helping young
lives to grow and develop In Christianity.
H is the teachers who can turn them from
satan to God and make them Christian
men and women. She urged upon the
teachers the necessity, of doing some
work outside the class rooms in the mat
ter of getting boys and girls Into the
Sunday schools, adding, "It is not your
responsibility to compel, but to help the
young lives to grow In Christ."
Swiss Makers of
Watches Keep Busy
(Correspondence of the Associated Press.)
Zl'HICH, Switzerland. Sept. . The
exports of Swiss watches In 1914 show a
decrease in value of more than $12,000,000,
as compared with the previous year. But
for the readiness with which Swiss man
ufacturers adapted themselves to the
changed conditions their losses would
have been still greater.
Switzerland's watch export Industry Is
the greatest In the world. Eighty-seven
per cent of all the foreign watches sold
in the various countries of the world
are made In Switzerland. In 1913 there
were exported more than 15.000,000
watches of a total value of some $37,000,
000, while less than 300,000 watches were
sold In the home market that year, not
2 per cent of the total production.
When the war broke out the Swiss
watch Industry was brought to a sudden
standstill. The manufacturers were most
pessimistic. There were no orders, there
was no money and credit was difficult
to obtain. But changes In fashion soon
helped them to circumvent the hardships.
Obviously there was no longer any mar
, ket for the more expensive watches, so
the, makers turned to producing cheaper
articles especially adapted for the mili
tary. A great trade was done in sliver,
nickel and gunmetal cased watches, with
luminous dials which found a ready sale(
among army men. excepting certain
towns and districts where only expensive
watches had been made, the industry
gradually recovered from the first de
pression and there are now fewer unem
ployed workmen than any time since the

TEUTONS FEAR ENGLAND
IS BUYING GERMAN FRUIT
(Correspondence of the Associated Press.)
KSSE.V, Germany, Aug. 17. Diligent
effort, are being made to restrict the
export, via the Rhine Into Holland, of
fruits that grow so plentifully along the
great river. Dutch merchants. It has
been established, have been taking out of
Germany great quantities of cherries
and berries which. It Is suspected, are
shipped on farrther to England.
Local fruit merchants have Just stum
bled upon the fact that contracts al
ready exist under which the best of the
late fruit has been sold to Dutchmen. The
quantity 1. greater than all Holland
would need or use. This fact,, along with
the fact that England always ha Im
ported German fruit, leads to the con
viction that Germany's enemy la still be

Chickens Come Home to Roost,"
Topic of Sermon Preached to Men
Hilly" Sunday preached yesterday
afternoon to the men only at the Tab
ernacle, his subject belli. "Chickens
Come Home to Kooet." He said:
The luh Psalm, the S.MH verso: "lt
the sinner be consumed out of the earth
and lnt the wicked be no more."
This always scorned to me to be a queer
verse of scripture. It Is a verse more
often misunderstood than any other and
road by ninny t Justify their living In
sin. It contains a thought which I don't
find so well exprested In any other verso,
not on account of its peculiarity, but
because It Is used by men to Justify their
living in sin.
There is- much unjust criticism of
David, who lived a virtuous and upright

Ing right and left and spewing and spit

suffer. Don't think that you aro the only
one that surfers. A man that goes to the
penitentiary makes his wife and children
suffer just as much as he does. You're
placing a shame on your wife and chil
dren. If you're a dirty, low-down, filthy,
drunken, whisky-soaked bum, you'll af

If you're a God-fearing man you will
Influence all with whom you come in
contact. You can't live by yourself.
Lyman Beechcr was a godly man, and
he was the father of more brains than
any other man.
I occasionally hear a man tay. "It's
nobody's business how I live." Then I
say he is tho most dirty, low-down,
whisky-soaked, beer-guzzling, bull
necked, foul-mouthed hypocrite that ever
had a brain rotten enough to conceive
such a statement and lips vile enough to
utter it. You say, "If I am satisfied with
my life, why do you want to' interfere 1
with my business?'
If I heard a man beating his wife and
heard her shrieks and the children'
crle and my wife would tell me to go
and see what was the matter, and I went
in and found a great, big, broad-shouldered,
whisky-soaked, hog-Jowled, weasel-
eyed, pug-gut dragging a little woman
round by the hair and two children in
the corner unconscious from Ms kicks
and the others yelling in abject terror,
and he said:
"What are you f ling in to interefere

my wife, didn't I pay for the license to
wed her?" You ought, or you're a
bigamist. "Aren't these my children;
didn't I pay the doctor to bring them
Into the world?" You ought to or you're
a thief. "If I want to beat them, what
Is that your business, aren't they mine?"
Would I apologize? Never! I'd knock
seven kinds of pork out of that old hog.
Liberty Not License. t
Personal liberty Is not Personal license.
I dare not exercise personal liberty, If It
infringes on liberty of others. Our fore
fathers did not fight and die for personal
license, but for personal liberty bounded
by laws. Personal liberty Is the liberty
of a burglar, of a seducer, or a raper, or a
wolf that wants to remain In a sheep
fold, or the weasel in a hen roost. You
have no right to vote for an institution
that is going to drag your sons and
daughters to hell.
If you were the only citizens of Omaha
you would have a perfect right to drive
your horse down the street at break
neck speed; you would have a right to
make a race track out of the streets for
your auto; you could build a slaughter
house In the public square; you could
build a glue factory in the public square.
But when the population Increases you
can't do It. You say: "Why can't I
run my auto? I own It. Why can't
I run my horse? I own It. Why can't
I build the slaughter house? I own
the lot." Yes, but other people have
So law stands between you and per

can't build a slaughter house In your

can't. As long a I am standing here on

can swing my arms at will. But the

haven't any right to live In sin. You say
you'll do It anyhow. All right, you'll
go to hell, too. Adam and Eve said they
would eat the apple anyhow, and the
world became a graveyard, and here's
the result today.
I look out into the world and see a
man living in sin. I argue with him. I
plead with him. I cry out warning words.
I brand that man with a black brand,
whose Iniquities are responsible for the
fall of others. '
No man Uvea to himself alone. I hurt
or help other by my life. When you
go to hell you're going to drag some one
else down with you and If you go to
heaven you're going to take some one
else with you. You say you hate sin.
Of course you do if you have respect.
But you never saw any one In this city
who hates sin worse than I do or loves
a sinner more than I.
I'm fighting for the sinners. I'm fight

that I'll not compromise one bit with

man will argue that sin 1 a good thing.

looked at her and blushed rosy red. But
he thought he had to cuss to be a man.

What do you cuss for? It doesn't do you
any good, gains you nothing In business,

thou shalt not steal, thou shalt not bear

about cussing than them all and they are

Story of n t.amhler.
When I was In. the Young Men's Chris
tian association work I knew a gambler
who was converted. He was making IT.fdO
a year and he was going up and down the
country showing that you ain't beat a1
aaniuier mi nis own game. He tells a
"tory of a game which was on and one i
mRn WB" accused of ringing In a cold
d,cl- The He was passed and a man shot
Ho was sentenced to die and a he was
being prepared on the scaffold, his little
4-year-old son toddled up the steps and
said, "Come home, papa." The sheriff
was a kind man, and he unbuckled his
feet and hands and let him lift the child
up. He told hi son ha couldn't come
homo and for him to go away now and
the sheriff would take care of him. Then
he turned to the crowd and cried: "For
(lod' sake, boya, don't lot my son be
what I have been." The trap fell and he
shot Into eternity.
A collection wa taken for that child
among the crowd and he wa placed In a
Christian home. When he was 21 they
gave him his money with accumulated
Interest. He started out on a career of
crime. He got down so low that they
wouldn't lot him sleep In the police sta
tion. He tried to get enough, and would
clean cuspidor in dirty, filthy saloons to
got enough to live.
Oh, men, blood will tell. I'm pleading
with you that you yield to Christ, so
that your children' live will not be
Men, there's three thing yon should
always remember where your wive are
concerned. First, show a deep personal
Interest in her. Plie entitled to It and
she'll love you the better for It. Second,
treat her as a companion. She I your
life comparlon and you should treat her
as mich. Third, show her the affection
every woman heart Is craving for. If
you don't, you shouldn't wonder If some
day another fellow appears on the scene
and gives her all those little attention
she Is craving for and that you have
neglected to give her.

The naptha in Fels-Naptha
soap stays in the soap until it
comes in contact with water.
Then it gets to work on the dirt
and grease loosening and
dissolving it, thus making hard
rubbing unnecessary, and doing
the work in half the time. While
the clothes are drying the nap
tha disappears evaporates.
Use Fels-Naptha for all soap-and-water work.
