12 THE BEE: OMAHA, WEDNESDAY, MARCH 5, 1919. SERVICES MURK ASH WEDNESDAY, FIRST DAY LENT Archbishop Harty to Preach at St." Mary Magdalsne Church; Vesper Services Throughout City. "Today is Ash Wednesday, the first day of Lent. It will be observed in all Omaha Catholic churches and in some of the Protestant churches with special services. Archbishop Harty will preach at I lie Lenten service in St. Mary Mag dalene church, Nineteenth and Dodge streets, beginning at 12:10 p. m. A noon service will be held in this church every week day dur ing Lent. Catholic churches throughout the city will hold vesper services. All through Lent these vespers will be held every Sunday. Wednesday and Friday evening in Catholic churches. Services in Catholic churches to day will be marked by the cere mony of "strewing ashes on the heads of the penitents." The ashes are made by burning the palms con secrated on Palm Sunday of last year. Actual strewing of real ashes on the head is no longer practiced as it was in the early days when this was the universally recognized sign of sorrow for sin. The priest today dips his finger in a bowl of ashes and makes the sign of the cross on the forehead of the penitent. ' Protestant churches observe Ash Wednesday with less of ceremony In many churches, particularly Epis copalian and Lutheran, it will be ob served with special services tomor row. Special Lenten service will be held in Kountze Memorial Luth eran church every Wednesday eve ning, beginning Ash Wednesday evening. Today will start "fasts" of various kinds among those who seek to observe devoutly the Lenten sea son. In strict observance of Lent, every day is a "fast day" except Sun days. Thes'e are not counted in the 40 days of fasting comprised be tween Ash Wednesday and Easier Sunday. Many people refrain from attend ing the theaters during this season. Others give up candy or other luxur ies and still others have other means of self-denial to bring them to a full realization of the penitential season. Jobbers of 2 States to Hear T. P. A.

OBITUARY JAMES ROSS, 60 years old, died Saturday at a local hospital. The body is at Heafey & Ileafey under taking parlors. No. 189. I Through rain, through snow Through tempest, go! 'Mongst streaming caves O'er misty waves, On, on, still on! ' Peace, rest have flown. Sooner through the sadness I'd wish to be slain, Than all the gladness Of life to sustain. All the fond yearnmg That heart feels for heart Only seems burning To make them both smart. How shall I fly? Forestward hie? Vain were all strife! Bright crown of life! Turbulent bliss Love I thou art this! No. 248. Love demonstrates itself in kisses and caresses; wrong again, yiiere the greatest show is made we often find the least love. Kisses and ca resses are only the emotions of the inner self, more or less se'.tish. How often do we squeeze and smother a poor little helpless babe with kisses for our own gratification, and the child's discomfort, often detrimen tal. We hear neople profess to love one another, bui wait until they are called upon .o make some great sacrifice, without one grain of honor or praise, even lowering themselves in the sight of man. Here is the test of real love. Many things are branded cowardice in this world which take more love and courage than facing the fiercest battle, - Love suffereth longand is kind; love envieth not; love vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up. doth not be have itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil, rejoices no in in iquity, but rejoices in the truth. Love beareth all things; love never faileth;' love that hides self to exalt another forgets its own comforts i for the comfort of another; in fact, dies daily to the things of self to win our enemies. This is love in all its fullness. Sot. No. 257. Love is a disease that most peo ple catch during their lifetime. It overpowers the lovers and all they think of is love. It gives some peo ple sorrow and others happiness. It makes some jealous and jealousy soon grows into hatred. Then be ing overpowered bj .hatred they try to do harm to the ones who turned down their love for that of another. That is my idea of love. No. 254. Love is the depth of the soul; it is pure, unselfish, sacrificing, kind, gentle, patient, obedient and perse vering. Love is that which neither one of our five senses can reach; yet we know it is present.

Love is the greatest thing in the world, here I am lost, who can give me a definition to this word When the school boy was asked to give a definition of light, he answered "Light is light." When you ask me to define the word love, I give you the boy's definition, "Love is love." Ask not qf me love, what is love. Ask what is giftnl of God above, Ask not the great sun, what is light, Ask what is darrkness of the night. Ask not sin what may be forgiven, Ask what is happiness of heaven, Ask not what is folly of the crowd. Ask what is fashion of the shroud, Ask not what is sweetness of kiss, Ask thyself what beauty is. The best definition ever given to this word was given by the humble fisherman along the banks of Gal lilee, who said God is love. In peace love tunes the shepherd's reed, In war he mounts the warrior's steed; In hall of gray attire i,s seen In hamlet dancing on the green. Love rules the court, the camp, the 1 grove. And men below and saints above, For love is' heaven and heaven is . love. No. 305. Love is nothing but an abcess to a man's pocketbook. No. 296. Love, which occurs in everyone's life, is the most heavenly feeling of i one individual toward another.

Arrange ments were made at a board meeting of the Drama league held Monday in the Fontenelle. No. 290. Love is so magnificent that it magnifies everything else around it Love is the fountain from which mercy springs. It steals down into the recesses of animal life, pulls the helpless up out of the mire and appeals to tne lofty to have mercy. It stretches its broad protecting wings over land and sea, crying out to the mighty with the shrillness of the eagle, to have mercy. It wends its way down the alleys and through the slums of the metrop olis seeking oarentless and neglect ed waifs, murmuring in its flight around the gables of mansions o have mercy. It goes along the streets, and thoroughfares comforting the blind and crippled beggars by whispering in through the open door of shop and tavern, to have mercy. It enters jails, prisons and asyl urns, imploring the attendants to have mercy. It creeps into judicial chambers of the land when criminals are be fore the bar of justice, appealing to judge and jury to have mercy. N It will sacrifice everything on the battlefield to comfort the wound ed and administer to the dying, pray ing to God to have mercy. jFurness Liner Driven Ashore by the Ice Pack j St. Johns, K.

American A tent), Ntw York T7 FyF WT) y An Appea 1 to the Liberty ouglas County and AH WE respectfully and urgently, appeal to all of the patriotic men and, women, who have in former campaigns been so successful in putting Nebraska "over the .top," to answer the call of their chairman to help in, organizing the state for the coming sale of about Sixty Million Dollars in Treasury Notes. The campaign will be an energetic and vigorous one of short duration and will commence officially on Mon day, April 21. The Secretary of the Treasury announces that this will be the last and. final offering of government securities to thepublic. ' It wculd te misfeec7frg to ilirk fret tie petiictic citizens of Nebraska cannot or will not take their state's quota. Loan Workers of Omaha. Counties in the State The success of the campaign in Nebraska depends, as all other campaigns have depended, upon complete and perfect organization. Nebraska has taken in four former campaigns $180,000,000.00 in Lib erty Bonds, but this has been an investment, not a gift. Nebraska has gained indefinitely more in a selfish and commercial sense by the war than it has invested or given to our country. If our state fails to do its part in taking its quota of this last offering of government securities, what will our answer be to those 47,000 Nebras ka men who gave up their occupations, their investments and their in ' comes, in fact, their homes, to offer their lives in defense of our country, when they are now returning after having left hundreds of their compan ions dead in France, and while thousands who are now reluming have been wounded, crippled, blinded, paralyzed and some of whom are hope less invalids? It is up to the Liberty Loan Workers, who know the game, to join hands as they have in former campaigns and pay the final bill just as our boys have made'the great sacrifice.' Liberty Loan workers of Nebraska, men and women, do not fail to answer the call of your chairmen a'nd of your organizing committees in this final chapter of the greatest financial undertaking of all time. Nebraska, Liberty Loam Thos. C. Byrne, Chairman. E. F. Folda, Secretary.
