THE OMAHA SUNDAY BrJK: MAY 27, 1X7.
:; I
SUNDAY SCHOOLS
CONVENE IN OMAHA
Westing to Mark Fiftieth An
niversary of Their Estab
lishment in State of
Nebraska.
The probabilities are that the sn
pual convention of the Nebraska Sun
day School association to be held in
Omaha June 19 to 20. inclusive, will
bring the largest gathering of re
ligioui workers ever congregated in
the city. It is said that 4,000 is a fair
estimate of the number of delegates.
The principal meetings of the conven
tion will as a rule be housed in the
with committee meetings in the down
town churches.
While it is expected that the dele
gates to the Sunday school conven
tion will as a rule be housed in the
homes of the citizens of Omaha, they
will all pay their way.
Fiftieth Anniversary.
The meeting of the Sunday school
workers at this time marks the fif
tieth anniversary of the establish
ment of Sunday schools in Nebraska
and consequently, church and reli
gious workers are bending their ener
gies to make this meeting i record
breaker. Another thing that adds to
the imnortance of the meeting is the
fact that on the same dates the Iowa
Sunday School association will hold
its annual convention in Council
Bluffs. At this meeting an attendance
of J.OOO to 5,000 delegates are ex
pected. At a number of the Omaha
meetings, large number of, the Iowa
delegates are expected.
T'-e Nebraska Sunday school con
vention will not be made up of dele
gates from any particular church. All
of the I'rotestant churches of the
state have affiliated in the movement
and delegates from all churches will
be in attendance. While, of course, the
majority of delegates are expected to
te young men and women interested
ii Sunday school work, unless this
convention is different from others,
there will be a large number of the
older men and women, people who
lor years have been active in this
branch of religious work.
Interest in Convention.
Out in the state a great interest is
being taken in the coming convention
and the people are beginning to or
ganize what they designate as "cara
vans." These caravans are made up
of automobile parties and already
tome gigantic ones are being planned.
Sunday school workers of Falls City
and vicinity have written to George
G. Wallace of the Omaha committee
1hat they will be on hand with 150 au
tomobiles, all loaded to capacity.
Cass county promises to send 200
automobile loads of delegates and
iriends and citizens of Nemaha coun
ty have -assured Mr. Wallace that
when it comes to attendance they pro
pose to carry off the banner.
The program for the Omaha con
vention js being made up and will be
ready to give out some time during
the last of this month. It will pro
vide for a great deal of special music,
both vocal and instrumental. In fact,
it is expected that a number of the
best musicians in the state will be on
the program.
Leaden In Work.
Among' the prominent Sunday
school workers from outside the state
will be Mrs. Maude J. Baldwin of Chi
cago. She is the superintendent of
the elementary division of the Inter
national Sunday School association
and for years has devoted a large por
tion of her time and energy to this
work.
Miss Nannie L. Frayser of Louis
ville, Ky., is another of the leaders
ho will be in attendance and who
will deliver several addresses, one is
tlementary superintendent of the
Kentucky State Sunday school asso
ciation, principal of one of the Louis
ville schools and a member of the
advisory board of the National Story
Tellers' league.
W. E. Fafferty of Philadelphia, edi-
w
'wi
tor-in-chief of all the Sunday school
periodicals published by the American
Baptist Publication society, has ac
cepted an invitation to attend the
Oinaha convention and will be put
down for one or more addresses.

bookkeeper at Paxton & Gallagher.
They will make their home in Coun
cil Bluffs.
Woman Suffrage is
Endorsed at Convention
Woman suffrage was endorsed by
the Nebraska Association of Commer
cial Clubs in Omaha yesterday, all
because of the eloquent talk Mrs.
O. C. Redick made in favor of the
Red Cross work. Her talk so moved
W. F. Adamek of Clarkson that he
got the floor and declared women
who have such loftly ideals and who
are capable of doing so great a work
as has been done here for the Red
Cross should have the ballot. He said
he had always been opposed to
woman's talk had changed his mind,
women's talk had changed his mind.
He moved that the organization en
dorse woman suffrage, and it did.

by thla remarkable pmacrtptlon and many
who aitoe wort tlaaara any they have thrown

"1 waa a I moat blind. Could not at to rend
at all. Now I can read everything without
my glaaaes and my eyre do not hurt any
mora. At night they would pain dreadfully.
Now they feel fine all the tlnieX It waa like
a miracle Lp me." A lady who uh:d it anya:
"The aimoaphenraoentetl haay wilh or with
out glasHM, but after using thla prescription
fir fifteen daya everything aeema clear, I
can read even fine print without alassr-a."
Another who uad It aaya: "I waa bothered
with eve at rain canard by overworked, tlrrd
eyre which Induced fierce hcarinchr-e. I have
worn glanara for aeverat yeara both for dis
tance and work, and without them I could
not read my own name on an envelope or
the typewriting on the machine before me. I
can do both now and have discarded my
long distance glania altogether I can count
the fluttering leaves on the treea acroaa the
etreet now, which for several year have,
looked like a dim green blur to me. I can

store and got a bottle nf BoniOpto tablets.
Drop one Mon-Opto tablet In a fourth of a,
Klaus of water and let It dissolve. With thla
liquid bathe the eyea two to four tlmea dally.
You should notice your eyea clear up per
