NEW RELIGIONS DIFFER
FROM OLD IN MOTIVES
"The old and the new religions differ
In their alliances, their motives and their
appeal," said Dr. F. Raymond Sturte
vant. Unitarian -minister at Taunton,
Mass., In his lecture Sunday morning
to the TJnlterians at Turpln's hall. "The
old was allied with magio and miracles,
motlvlzed by fear, and appealed by out-w-rrd
forms. The new Is allied with
science and sense. Is Motlvlzed by loy
alty and rppcala to the mind, heart,
-onscitnce end soul. The liberality of
the free church is its temporal weakness
and tte spiritual strength. Forms, rites,
ceremonies rnd BUllkens spell temporal
strength, hut spiritual vegetation. The
free church I Imperative In a democracy.
Fear and fetish gone, Clio challenge is

Advanced medical authorities assert
that auto-intoxication ia the foundation
of most of the modern maladies from
which run-down Americans suffer.
"This condition." says Joseph Von
Trlmbach, noted giver of health aids, and
who created the famous formula of Tan

slow, sclf-poisoning of the vital organs
produced by the excessive strsln of life
today. The reserve force of the organs
Is exhausted and as they function below
normal, toxins actual poisons are gen
erated within one's own body.
"In the majority of cases the trouble
starts with the stomach. But In any
case the blame lies with faulty methods
of living. When the organs falter In
their duties and become congested, the
body Is tainted with poisons and the

I erpecially Indoor workers are 111 ely to be

Tan lac, the great reconstructive medi

Omaha, was created .especially to over

CROSS SWORDS OYER PENSIONS
The embrogllo at Norfolk Involving Dr.
Outtery. superintendent of the Norfolk
Insane asylum, waa used as an argument
for the adoption of civil service reform
at the Woman's club MMnday. Mrs. F.
II. Cole, prominent club woman and civil
service reform advocate, declared that
civil service reform rule would have pre
vented the disgraceful proceedings at
Norfolk because the rule demands an In
vestigation of the moral character and
fitness of earn employe.
"The trouble la that men get positions
In state Institutions because they have a
political 'pull.' " added Mra. D. U. Craig
head. "Positions In atate Institutions
should only be held by those who have
given life-study to their work"
Deplores fSereraor's Vet.
Mrs. Cole deplored the vetoing of the
last civil service reform hill by the gov
ernor and tha fact that the atate chart
ties and corrections committee had not
worked to have the law passed.
"A civil service law would protect su
perintendents ss well as attendants.
Nurses with Immoral reputations would
never be employed. For humahttarlan
reasons, If for no other, because many of
the Inmates are In atate Institutions on
account of Immoral lives at home, club
women should work for thla law," urged
Mia. Cole, who ia also chairman of thla
department for the Oeneral Federation of
Women's clubs, representing several mil
"I am not condemning the Institutions
or Individuals, but I am condemning the
conditions which permit these things to
happen In thla enlightened day," ss
scried Mrs. Cole.

Mrs. Cole also advocated a pension for
federal employes, but thla was attacked
in a spirited talk by Mtis. Craighead. "I
am opposed to pensions of any sort. We
should work for better' wages for work
lug men and women so that no pension
need be necessary," aald Mra. Craighead.
Prof. Henry Olerlch outlined President
Wilson's policy of preps redneas for the
