acrobatics which have made him fa

peal to sinners to be aaved. It was en
titled "How To Be Less Than a Man."
It appealed In turn to all the emotions
of men on which Sunday found It possi
ble to play.
"Do you want to know why a lot of
you fellows have not come down the
aawdust trallT" he demanded. "It's be
cause you're not man enoug-h to do It.
You have not come down and shaken
yny hand and Bone out and told the world
you're a Christian, because you're not
man enough to do It."

In the midst of a pathetic story which
caused many to shed tears, "Billy" said:
'And he went from bad to worse and
from thero to Chicago."
"Billy" attacked Robert Ingersoll sav
agely. After describing him as a man of
supreme ability and genius he called him
"nothing but a mouthful of sweetened
wind," and "a wrecker pure and simple."
He declared Ingersoll's preachings of
Skepticism had done great harm and as
serted he would prefer being a vile out
cast to being Ingersoll.

sermon at the tabernacle.

Is the mere society" woman, who Uvea for

Yet this was not a frapps sermon, or
a dance sermon, nor yet a society ser

subject of "preparedness," one might
say that is preparedness at all times
to give a reason for one's faith In Jesus
Christ. That material happiness cannot
bring peace, that wealth cannot bring
peace, that splendid equtppagea, costly
liveries, rich robes and flashing dia

RANDOLPH, Kan., Oct. 17. The exact
number of dead In the wreck yesterday
of the Union Pacific motor train at the
Fancy Creek bridge near here may never
be known. .
When the car, which plunged head
first Into the creek, was raised today, the
front end dropped out, carrying Into the
flooded stream those bodies which the
rescuers were unable to reach last night.
All efforts to find the bodies In the
racing stream had failed tonight. The
number Is not known, but officials esti
mate that four and possibly six persons
were drowned in addition to the eleven
whose bodies were recovered yesterday.
In the dive into the mud and rock at
the bottom of the stream, where the car
carrying sixty-five passengers plunged
when the bridge abutment gave way, the
front of the coach was demolished. Of
the thirty passengers in that end of the
car, the swift flood waters lodged much
sand and mud about them.
The stream was too swift for divers to
examine the bottom closely when the car
was lifted, but It was found that the
hole the car had gouged out in the
stream's bottom was of a great depth and
was fast filling with mud and sand swept
down by the current.
It Is believed by officials that several
bodies were burled by this mud and sand
before the car was raised and remained
