In the case mentioned above where
a local firm lost the trade of another
I firm, the money spent in that line of
i goods easily ran into the thousands in
i a year, and even a small amount of
1 the total taken in would have paid a
competent man. But in trying to save
ja very few dollars the firm lost thou-
sands. No doubt there are many sim
ilar cases and if the business houses
are not now conscious pf the fact it is
time for them to take notice.

ed will be read and the opinion of the
members will be solicited. On Oct

changes in the constitution will be vot

tr the reducing of the senior mmDer
sblp from two dollars to one dollar per
year, and of the junior membership
from one dollar to fifty cents per year.
They also relate to the enlargement
of the board of directors.
The regular Sunday vesper sei vices
were held at the Homestead yeEterday
with an unusually large attendance.
The principle talk of the af'trnoon
was given by Miss Esther Anderson,
who for five years was secretary of the
National Association, and is now on
her way to the coast from association
work in Australia. Her talk was main
ly on the Y. W. C. A. work in Austra
lia and she tola a number of interest
ing things about the girls In that coun
try. Miss Anderson became very fond
of the life in Australia finding among
the people there many true friends.
On account of illness, Mrs. Dean
W. VVickes did not speak. Miss Lil
lian Brady sang "Fleets a Bird" and
after the gospel talk upon the subject
"Powers of tne Unseen" tea was serv
ed to 'hose piosent.
Mrs. Honeyman, who is visiting in
the city wi,th her daughter, Mrs. Bark
er, was a guest at the meeting. For
many years Mrs. Honeyman was presi
dent of the Portland, Oregon, associa
tion and at one time was on the Jo

ranged to follow immediately after
the, French class from four until five

direction of Miss Laura Baker.
j'The regular Sunday meeting of the
Newcomer's Club was held at the Y.
M. C. A. yesterday with the usual
large attendance. Preceding the dis
cussion, Anderson's instrumental trio
rendered a fine musical program in
the lobby. . These concerts, as well as
the discussions have become very po

' In the absence of Ed. Towse, the
discussion was led by General Secre
tary Super, of which the topic was
"Jesus and War." The principle point
was whether or not war was in ac
cordance with the teachings of Jesus.
The War In Mexico, Nicaragua and
the Balkans made the discussion time
ly and both sides Were represented.
The personal consensus of opinion
was that there are occasions .when
war is for the purpose of righting a
great wrong, as was the case in Cuba
and that war was the only way, right
or wrong, to settle some dispute un
til an international court of arbitra
tors and police force were in effective
Following the discussion the fellow
ship supper was held in the cafeteria
and all who cared to remain were in
vited. , iJ

NEW ACT AT
YE LIBERTY TONIGHT
The Sierra this morning brought a
number of vaudeville acts for the
Consolidated Amusement Co. and
Manager McGreer was on the go from
early morn until late in the afternoon
arranging for accommodations of the
Thespians. What gave him more
trouble and worry than anything else
was the pony circus which - he had
scheduled for the Liberty tonight. But
the Territorial vets insisted that the
little animals had to undergo quar
antine whether they were trained or
not. Appealing, McGreer was unable
to get his ponies off so he will have to
postpone their opening , until Thurs
day night , ,
, One of the other big acts- that ar
rived this morning" but didn't give
McGreer any trouble, is La Boheme, a
trio , of high class vocalists and in
strumentalists, who will vbe headlin
es at the Liberty, toriittfH . jf '
The trio" which' consists of E. Mo
linario, baritone, N. Glustat, baas, and
A. Rooues, tenor, have elaborate press
notices and It seems that they scored
heavily wherever they, appear. One
of the notices refer td'them as the
best act in vaudeville today.

"CHOOSING A WIFE"
SUBJECT OF SERMON
At the Methodist Episcopal Church
last night Rev. Elmer Smith dellvered
ea the first of a series of 'forceful ter
mons on the Important subject "Choos
ing a Wife." This advice was founded
on practical every-day judgment as
well as a Ltqdy of psychology and Us
relation jto the sexes, and a large
crowd gathered to hear the talk on
subjects concerning the home and
private life of men and women. Mr.
Smith had chosen as his text "Wno so
findeth aVife, ftndeth a good thing"
Prov. 18-22, and "A prudent wife is
from the Lord" Prov. 19-24.
During ,the course of his sermon he
"Marriage, when two persons are
properly mated, is not only the normal
state pf men but it is the ideal state
cl man. Of course when people are
not properly mated marriage is far re
moved from the ideal. All people find
that love Is blls3, but alas, some peo
ple find that marriage is a blister.
Some one has defined matrimony as
'that state which is a blessing to a
few, a curse to many and a great un
certainty to all.' Anotter cynic de
clares that the only difference between
honeycomb and honeymoon is that the
former Is a lot of little cells while the
latter is a great big seil.
"The most terrible tragedy imagin
able is that of a pure, beautiful woman
innocently sacrificing herself on the al
ter of diseased and deprived manhood.
Such a man who folds in his Elimy em
brace such a woman, is guilty before
God and men of the moct heinous
crimes. Any punishment in this world
or the next is too good for him. Any
true man would reather see his daugh
ter go into the jaws of a man-eiting
shark or into the treacherous arms of
a giant octopus than into the matri
monial arms of a well-dressed, but rot
