up in its exhibit of fashiona

styles, qualities and prices
than almost any other concern

here more'n elsewhere, from
the vast shelf space built all
along the east wall of the
mammoth room and loaded to
the full extent of their capaci

that a firm with a built-up
business to warrant the car
rying of such enormous lines
are in shape to give more and
better protection for the money
a man pays than dealers with
smaller inlets and outlets.
A man's pants, to be every
way proper, should come from
the When stock, that's sure.
And besides, we carry con

Another Daring Kapreee Robbery.
Fort WoKTit Tex.. Jan. S4. At 3
o'clock Sunday morning, as the east-bound
Texas and Pacific express was pulling out
of Cordon, a small station sixty miles west
of here, two masked aud armed men
Jumped on Uie engine and covered the en
gineer and hreman with their revolvers.
The engineer was forced to pull ahead
until the train reached a high trestle two
miles east of Gordon. As soon as the
engine and baggage aud mall ears bad
passed oyer Uie trestle, the train stopped,
leaving the passenger coaches on the
trestle. At this point the masked men
were reinforced by six assistants. The rob
bers then went through the express car,
taking all the money and valuables in the
safe, the amount being estimated at from
32,000 to 815,000. although the Pacific ex
press officials refuse to state the exact
amount stolen. The robbers then proceed
ed to the mall car, where they obtained
twentj -eight registered packages. The
passengers were not disturbed, and. their
coaches being on the high trestle, they
could not get out to assist the trainmen.
There is no clue to the robbers.

the wheels. Is a twenty-five-gallon chemical
tank, making the chemical capacity of the
wagon 110 gallons. The bed of the con

lightness with strenglli. In this bed are
carried one thousand feet of two-and-one-lialf-lnch

Yesterday afternoon when 3 o'clock ar
rived It found a large audience assembled
to do honor to the character of a grand
Christian woman, now gone to her final re
ward. It was the occasion of the memorial
services to Mrs. Mary A. Cummlnga. so af
fectionately known to ail interested In the
temperance work and causa as Mother
Cummings. A more modest, unassuming,
unostentatious woman never lived, yet
withal she was a woman of strong, positive
convictions, which she asserted In such a way
that no one could take offense.
The programme of exercises asv already
published was observed. Mrs. J. B; Wertz,

ULM0BU.L PA1T.IL ts
Within the last three months tho W. C.
T. V. has been called to mourn the Iojs of
two of its members Mrs. Margaret Fuller
ton and Mother Cummings. Mrs. Fuller
ton became a member of oar union- two or
three years before her death. Her Extreme
deafness hindered her from meetUx 'fftth
us; but her S)mpathy, prayers- audi means
were given to us, and in her death we lose
these essentials whiob are necessary, to our.
Mother Cummings. whose memorial serv
ices we observe today; wns identified with
our work from the hrst and as
tier characteristic way of living
as a Christian, was in remembrance, "we
were not redeemed to be idle, but to serve
God and be zealous of good works." and to
all who knew knew her, her deep, life-long
religious character was a full, rich testimo
ny that she was not "Idle," but served and
was "zealous of good works." When God
sounded the call for workers in Il's vine
yard her gentle voice responded, "Here am
I, send me." Being a woman of sound,
decided opinions, she declined any
office, when Elected. sajing. "it
was better for her to be under
authority than to attempt to lead." Al
though so settled In her views and opinion
of right and wrong, she was not narrow
minded; but a woman of unusual Intellect,
searching upon all sides of the question,
and she could bring forth her arguments with
tell'ng effect when conversing with those
who differed from her.
When the organization of the W. C. T.
U. grew out of the crusade, the weekly
Thursday prajer meeting v is established,
when the members met to ask God's guid
ance in this great work: no one of us will
forget her prayers or her words of earnest
cheer and exhortation.
Being guided by God In answer to pra)
ers, as we believe, the jail and station
house work was here entered Into. Her
work then was faithfully carried on. Some
of us who were so intimately related with
her In this work feel that we cannot make
others understand her deep heartf elt s) m
patby for the unfortunate victims who
were Incarcerated within one or the other
places of punishments. With tears in her
e)es and trembling in her voice, and lay
ing her hands upon them affectionately,
she would entreat them to accept of Christ
at their Saviour, to leave off sinning and
to break the habit of strong drink,
the curse which bad brought them there.
No, we cannot tell It- God alone has the
In the gospel temperance work Sabbath
afternoon she eined inspired when she
spoke, and, as another has said, "her face
was as the face of an angel, her words so
earnest, and her whole being stirred." She
bad an influence on every hearer, and today
"her works do follow her." Then her per
sonal work, speaking to this one and that
one, never letting an opportunity escape
Her last public, work was presenting the
banner to the Leonard Guards from the W.
C. T. U. Soon after, she was taken sice,
and as we sat beside tier she sent words of
cheer to our W. C. T. U. and gave us in
prophetical words an outlook of the great
prohibition movement, of the steady march
on to v ictory, and spoke of the grandeur of
the X. W. C. T. U. organization. Do you
not think if she had been asked the ques
tion on her death bed, as another was
asked, who had been engaged in the tem
perance reform: "Were you to live your
life over again, would )ou change vour life
work?" The answer came: "Xot at
all. Xot at all I thank God
for the blessed privilege of working in the
good cause, and I would be willing to ex
perience six times the trials I have to de
fend it again were I to live my life ovei
again. I derive great satisfaction from the
consciousness of having tried to do ray
duty in a righteous cause."
Although Mother Cummings was ready
to go if it was the Lord's will to take her,
yet no doubt she felt "The grave cannot
praise Thee, death cannot celebrate Thee;
the living, the living, he shall praise
Thee." She wanted to live, to work for,
and see the victory' and triumphs of the
She fully expected to see the day when
prohibition would prevail. Like the apos
tles who were looking for the coming of
Christ, thinking the day was at hand, so,
too, was she looking and waiting for the
victor). But He who never makes any mis
takes bid her come up higher. As long as
health lasted she was engaged in her church
work, was in her place at prayer meeting.

"Home of the Soul" was beautifully and
touchingly rendered by the quartette.

closely identified with Mother Cummings in '
the temperance work, becoming -very intl-
hum wiw ner in tne ume oi the crusade,
briefly and feelingly told of her connection

Mrs. Minnie Willis Balnes read an ex

attending school, and ever since has cher
ished a wann feeling for her, and A. K.
Ludlow, whose acquaintance dated back for
more than a quarter of a century. Both of
these gentlemen bore testimony to the un
ceasing, unwavering Christian devotion of
this good woman.

Red-Letter Day in the Sprloitl.ld
Churchea Sniidly N umeroua Accewlena
In all theHouaea of Worehlp.
Sunday, January 2J, was a day leng to
be remembered in the history of the
churches of Springfield, as an occasion
when the marshaling forces, to the cause of
the blessed Redeemer, were so great and
united as to be remarkable. Protracted
services have been held and are being held
in a number of the Springfield churches.
and yesterday the full fruition of the glori
ous work showed itself in a rich harvest of
At the First English Lutheran, there
were fiftv accessions to the church, and of
this number thirt)-five were children iu the
Sunday school. The services were of the
most impressive and pathetic character,
and Dr. Uelwig's manner of conducting
the ceremonies was so gracious so charac
terized b) the spirit of the Master and so
solemn withal, that the day will be remem
bered for years for its results.
St Paul M. b. church bad one of the
grandest days In its history, and a spirit of
deep unity and enthusiasm pervades the
entire congregation and the pastor. Rev.
iletiry luckley. At the session ot the
Sabbath school thirty-nine united
th the church. and at the
morning service held immediately after
ward, there were sixteen other acces
sions, making a total of fifty-five for the
morning. At the evening services eight
more joined the church, making a total of
slxt)-three for the day perhaps the largest
da) 'a work In the history of St Paul. Ihe
incidental services were or the most beauti
ful and solemn character.
The protracted meetings now in nrogrr
have been wonderfully successful and sir
conference 126 accessions to the chr
have resulted. Mr. Tuckley r
nounced esterday that In tv
weeks he expected to hold a grand jubilee
meeting, as by that time it was expected
that the number would reach two hundred.
Another account of the meeting ajs:
"tjunday was a day which will never be
forgotten in St Paul church. In all fifty
eight were received Into membership, all
but eleven being upon profession of faith.
The tide of revival is rising constantly.
The work gives promise of far exceeding
that of last winter. There will be meetiugs
every evening this week."
At the Central M. K. church the method
of proceedure is different The converts
are taken Into the church as rapidly as they
profess faith, so that there ls a constant
good work done, although not so much that
is apparent on the surface. The protract
ed meetings are very profitable.
At the Hrst Baptist six or eight converts
have been made during the reviv al ser
vices. At Trln it) Baptist. Rev. Thos. Alien.
the noted and eloquent Ohio missionary,
spoke in the svenlng to a large congrega
tion. Three rose for pra)er and two of
fered themselves for accession to the
Temperance Hall Service.
Dudley Dow, the )oung vocalist Is mtt
ing friends at the religious services being
held at Temperance hall. Yesterday morn
ing he sang "The Harvest Is Passing." and
last evening as he rendered "The Boy's
Best rrlend is His Mother," many were
melted to tears. Before the sermon tonight
he will sing '-The Family Bible." All are
invited to attend.

William Jennings, the-ubiquitous and
ambidexterous colored horse-thief, an
nounced this u ornlng that he desired to
change his plea to guilty. He was accord
ingly brought Into court by Deputy A. J.
Halter. Jennnlngs Is a thek-set
stolid-looking negro, and was plainly
impressed by the seriousness of the pro
ceedings. There are three indictments
against him. Xo. 5426 Ls for stealing a
mare of the value of 850, December 39,
from Albert Martin; Xo. 3427. for stealine
a mare January 2. from Scott Laton, val
ued at S150, and Xo. 3423. stealing a geld

Kobelenz. The prosecutor read the indict
ments and made a short statement relatinz
what has been previous!) claimed bv Jen
nings concerning his alleged accomplices.
W. M. Rockel. his attorney, asked the len
iency of the court for the prisoner, on the

grounds mat ne had never thrown any

assisted in the work. The prosecutor also
stated that Jennings had Just finished a
year in the pen. for grand larceny before
"Jstand up," said Judge White, and Jen
nings rose to his feet and began to twirl his
hat rapidly in his bands. "Have you any
thing to sa?"
Jennings shook his head, looked around
dispalringly for a spittoon, found It used it
liberally and then said. "Xo sir."
Judge White stated that it was an un
pleasant duty to send a man to the peni
tentiary for a second time, but that society
must be protected. The court had felt like
giving even a heavier sentence, but in con-
siueration ot tne assistance given by Jen-
nings to the officers, he would lessen the
terms he had originally contemplated.
Judge White then gave Jennings six. four
and two years respectively on the three la-1
dictinents: a total of tw elve ) ears, at hard
labor, no part In solitary confinement
and to pay the costs of pros -
