When the theft was discovered at 11 o'clock the police were called, but they could find no clue as to th robbers.

' """ - Kansas City papers report that twenty-eight leading broom manufacturers of the United States met In Kansas City last week and canvassed the situation In that Industry, which they regarded as so serious that It will result In a shut down of factories In a few months and an JOO per cent Increase In the price of brooms. It was said cheap brooms that now retail at 25 cents will go lip to 60 cents and the better class of brooms will go up to $1. The crop Is short, very short. Heavy rains In Oklahoma and western Kansas, where the broom corn Is raised, caused a failure. Corn that spld -a year ago lor 185 a ton Is now worth $200 a ton. Speculators who formerly stored the corn to provide t gainst such trouble are caughtj short of stock and the mills have but enough to last a nort time. Therefore the price of brooms will go up.

HE Australian leader, Elinor Stafford Millar, who has been speaking to the women and girls of -Lincoln during the past week under the auspices of the Young Women's Christian association, addressed two large audiences yesterday morning and afternoon and a large number at the union mission last night. Miss Millar's talk at the First Baptist, church at the morning service was on the subject, "Thought Life." Paul's well known exhortation to the Phillpplans, the guide for their thought life, emphasized by the speak er's terse phraseology, illustrated fromi the stores of her own broad experience, took on new and vital meaning. The special Young Women's Christian association service was at 4 o'clock in the afternoon, when Miss Millar addressed a mass meeting of men and women at the First Congre gational church. Every available bit of space in the auditorium and Sunday school rooms was used and many were unable to find seats. The speaker's subject was not a new or particularly original one,"How to Read Your English Bible," but a sympathetic understanding of the wealth, the comfort, the Joy that, may come through Intimate acquaintance with the "profoundest book in the world" bore In upon the minds and hearts of the many who heard. Her appeal for earnest Bible study rested on four polnta: The means of Intellectual development, promotion of Christian character, safeguarding against error, and the action on the Individual. The musical numbers added to the beauty of the service. Mrs. Carrie B. Raymond was at the organ. Mrs. August Molzer and Miss Lillian Elche, violin and 'cello. Mrs. Walter Lyndon Pope sang. Miss Millar's last message for Lincoln people was given at 8 o'clock In the evening at the Union mission. The question asked of her hearers was Pilate's, "What then shall I do unto Jesus, who Is called Christ?" and the answer was found In Christ's words In the scriptures. Mrs. Simmons sang at the beginning of the service. About seventy-five church people and sixty others attended the meeting. Among those present were Mayor and Mrs. C. W. Bryan and Mr. and Mrs. T. 8. Allen. Ten persons held up their hands for prayer and two went forward and shook hands with Miss Millar. Lexington Friday and In the evening spoke at a fanners' barbecue at Co-zad.

About three hundred people were present. George L. Sheldon, former governor of Nebraska, and now a plantation owner at Wayside, Miss, arrived iii Lincoln Sunday and will remain over Thanksgiving day with friends. Each time he returns to Lincoln bis friends remark that he looks more and more like the southern plantation owner of old times. He Is now as brown as a nut, and that, added to his broad hat and his broad stride. Is more than enough to attract attention. While admitting that he still takes a lot of Interest In politics. Mr. Sheldon declined last evening to comment on any o fthe things that are uppermost In the minds of Nebraska statesmen. Not even the Nebraska attempt to draw Justice Hughes Into the presidential race was sufficient to elicit a word from the ex-governor.

"The conversion of the world Is the supreme problem of Christianity! It is not the defense of truth, for in the end truth may be depended upon to take care of itself, and it .can never fail. Nor does the material prosperity of the church need to be the chief concern. That which haa value will always bring a price. The real issue is the salvation of mankind, the transformation of the race into the nature and graces of Christ. But this ia be- ng veryBlowly-aceomplished. Vast populations are filling the earth who, living and dying know not God. On every feidn are evidences of the ravages of ein, and the fruits of sin constantly produce sorrow and shame. In spite of education and science, disease and poverty and pain still curse the land. The optimist may shut his eyes to this, but whenever he opens them he receives a shock. However firmly one may believe that the" world is bettering, he must confess the tardiness, of the process, and deplore the fact that uncounted millions are unsaved." DE LAND LEETE. Such a condition as Leete describes ought not cause discouragement but to cause every Christian to buckle on the armor more tightly and with a faith that will not shrink, resolve to change that condition. It is God's plan that we should do that very thing. The superintendent will be in Niobrara presbytery for the next few weeks, engaged in special meetings. Rev. N. P.

In those good old days when the shopkeeper had to be polite or have his head chopped off by a finicky duke, the use of terms of politeness, so-called, were a necessity. They dubbed the dukes and other sprigs of nobility "most honored sir" or "most gracious lady," although the recipients wore, as a rule, anything hut honorable or gracious, and then the first thing they knew they were dubbing one anot her "dear sir" and 'dear matlame," and ending their scrawls with "yours truly" and similar phrases. ' -This sort of thing In time became an Institution and It has lasted up to the present day. It Is only very recently that the foundation began to crumble, and some of the largest firms In the country suddenly discovered that "yours truly" and "dear sir" .lid not mean anything and took a lot of good time that a stenographer could use to better advantage. Therefore they have discontinued the habit. Among the great firms that have adopted this reform Is the R. H. Macy company, New York's big department store. For fear that some of the correspondents may not understand this departure at first, they have printed on the bottom of their letters the following: "We have never heard a good reason for the use of 'dear madame,' 'di ar sir.' 'yours truly' and other similar phrases In business correspondence. For the sake of accuracy, brevity and economy we have discontinued their use." rn Par.

It may take some time to adjust ourselves to the reorganization of the home missionary societies, but when It Is all done It Is quite possible that the gain will be greater than the loss. We have long felt the mission Sunday school work could well be taken care of by the home missionary society and thus leave the Congregational publishing society to care for the publishing activities of the denomination and that the American missionary association could well be transferred to the Congregational - educational society if there be no legal objections in the way, and the white churches under the care of association turned over to the home missionary eociety, thus leaving the A. M. A. to look after the purely church missionary work among the colored races In our midst. We would go father than the national council has gone and would Hat all negro churches as "colored" or "negro" In the year "book. This question came up at the national council held In Worcester, Mass., several years ago. It waa only the eloquent pleading of some negro delegates who thought that such action at that time would be in terpreted as "class legislation, that deferred action. Such interpretation could hardly be urged today. The year book should give correct information along these lines. German churches are designated "German Swedish churches "Swedish", Indian churches "Indian" and so with the Chinese and Japanese churches. Ne gro churches should be designated "negro" and then the year book would not lead any one astray and some would be spared unecessary embarrassment. Whether the church building society should be placed In the church extension group with the home mission ary and publishing societies under one general secretary is a debatable ques tion but we are confident that in the end the right conclusion will be reachPd and that the proposed read justment will be or should be In our missionary work. M. A. BULLOCK. since made a decision who did not go forward during me meetings. A delightful reception was given Mr. and Mrs. W. H. .Wallace and fam ily at the Lincoln Vine church last Friday evening. In view of the fact that the family leave soon to spend the winter In California. A brief program, expressing among other things, appreciation of the helpful cooperation of the family in all lines of church work, waa followed by light refreshments And ? pleasant social hour In the church parlors. The Williams meetings which closed at Weeping Water last Monday eve ning, November 15, concluded a re markably vigorous campaign extend ing over four weeks. A revised list leaving out all reconsecrations by former church membersshowed about eighty professed conversions. Mr. Williams held a series of meetings at. Weeping Water about ten years ago, and the results of the campaign Just closed have fully Justified the wisdom of the committee of the church in inviting him to come a second time to help in the same community. The First church Lincoln, Rev. R, . Waite pastor, held its annual. meeting 'November 17. The "social rooms of the church were made attractive with decorations, and about 250 sat down to the annual dinner prepared by the ladies. Reports showed a suc cessful year of church work along all lines. Nearly $12,000 has been contributed for all purposes, of which p.bout $8,000 were used for running expenses, $1,300 for benevolences, and 1850 for constructing a "rest room" in the church. The year closes with all expenses paia in full and a substantial balance in the treasury. In addition to the usual business of reports and the election of officers for the new year, plans for aggressive work were outlined and dlscuReed. or.der the enthusiastic lead of the pastor the church looks forward to a year of enlarged activities, wider influence, and increased results fot 1916. The golden jubilee of the Avoca church, which was celebrated November 14 and 15, was an occasion of unusual Interest for the church and community. Sunday was a full day for the pastor and wife, Rev. and Mrs. A. E. Bashford, who were present and assisted by speaking or singing, or both, at all the services of the day, including Sunday school at 10 a. m., morning services at 11, children's meeting at 2:30, women's meeting at 3:30, Christian endeavor meeting at 6:45, and evening service at 7:30. Pull audiences were present at all services. Rev. and Mrs. J. M. Kokjer of Blair, a former pastor and wife, were present and Mr. Kokjer assisted in the morning and evening services. The pastor led an Interesting children's meeting in the afternoon, where his ability to use the crayon added vividness to the well chosen points of his talk to the children. A large audience of women was addressed by Mrs. Hanford of Lincoln at 3:30. Excellent music was furnished by the choir for all of the services. The attractive appearance of the freshly decorated walls was ap preciated the more because they represented the skilful handiwork of the pastor. The anniversary dates, 1885-1915, were joined by the word "jubilee" on the front wall by a gol den chain of fifty links. Monday afternoon was given to historical reminiscences. A banquet at which 120 guests sat down together, was served Monday evening, followed by toasts, and the evening closed with a histor ical paper by Mrs. Oliver Harmon, illustrated with lantern slides prepared by Mr. Bashford. Special evangelistic meetings were continued each evening last week, which will be held this week also, assisted by Rev. W. M. Elledge of Weeping Water. through the gate of Hell to where in the starless air they hear strange tongues, horrible cries, words of pain, accents of anger, and deep, hoarse, noises. Dante, overcome with horror, asks Virgil who these sufferers are. Virgil answers : This wretched state The sorry souls of those endure Who without shame and without honor lived. They are commingled with that caitiff crew Of angels, who neither rebels were Nor true to God. but for themselves. In order not to be less beautiful. Heaven drove them out; the deepa of Hel receive them not. Lest damned souls should glory over them. ... Mercy and justice disdain them: Speak not of them, but look and pass. Dante Alighieri's scorn of those who remain neutral when- right- is fighting against wrong, has become part of the Italian inheritance. 1 THE WOUNDED SOLDIER. The Hmplng soldier stopped to rest, A lady hurried to his side; '1 see you're wounded, and can guess The suffrlngs you've endured," aha cried. "The bursting shells that filled the air. The deadly bayonet and gun;- ' How grand to feel you've done your shara In holding back the cruel Hun! "No doubt you saved a comrade's life, And, wailing face to face with death. Stood calm 'mid the appalling strife" She paused a moment to take breath. The modest soldier shook his head, And, much embarrassed at this fuss, "I've not been to the front," he said; "I slipped in getting off a bus!" London Evening Standard.

"A ' successful union evangelistic campaign at York, under the lead of Mr. Lowry and his helpers, closed about a-week ago, There were 756. professed conversions, besides a large numbei of reconsecrations. As a result of personal effort several have The Itallaa Idea of Neutrality. (Henry Dwlght Sedgwick In Yale Review.) The Italian are a sentimental people; they entertain a conception of neutrality quite different from our own. To them neutrality Is not, as we assume it to be, a thing to be proud of. To the Latin mind neutrality is unworthy, except when the matters in dispute are so shrouded in darkness that it is impossible to say which combatant Is right and which wrong. They feel like Sir Perceval, who. when he came upon a Hon and a dragon fighting, did not stand aside but took the part of the Hon, because "he was the gentller beaate of the two." For them progress, civilization, ethics, are slow accretions piled up by repeated victories of right over wrong, of the greater right over the leaser right, of the lesser wrong over the greater wrong. Their keen eyes seldom find the balance of righteousness evenly hung; and they hold it of the utmost Importance that the side on which right preponderates, even by the fraction of a scruple, should prevail. They hold that it is an honest man'B duty to throw bis weight on that side. Perhaps this Is due to the Influence of the greatest of Italians. Few sentences are as keep engraven In the Italian mind as the famous verses from the third canto of the Inferno. Every Italian boy learns them by heart.
