NEW AND IMPROVED SERVICE
The Mobile & Ohio Railroad Are E
Again to the Front in an Effort
I to Improve Their xcellent Service
i Through Service between St. Louis
I On January 5th, 190(i, the Mobile & a
Ohio Railroad and the :Munson S .S. tl
Line will establish through service be- "
tween St. Louis and Havana, Cuba. l1
A fast train de luxe (and it will be t'
de luxe in every sense of the word) h
will leave St. Louis at 9:40 p. m. ev- T
ery Friday over the Mobile & Ohio t'
Railroad, and will reach the steam
ship docks at Mobile at :1.00 p. m. Sat- o
urday. This train will be called the 1
I Havana Limited. The nineteen-knot s,
i S. S. "Prince George" will be at the ti
p docks awaiting the arrival of the Ha- ti
vana Limited, and after the custom
officers have performed their necessary
functions. the "Prince George'" willI h
sail at 4.00 p. m. and run into the har-I
) bor of Havana as the sun rises on the s
' following Monday morning. s
The Havana Limited will be a solid
Pullman train composed of the finest
equipment yet built. The make-up of c
the train will consist of a composite a
baggage, buffet, club, smoking and t
library car: dining car: and drawing
room, 'compartment and observation
sleeping cars. In the club car will he C
a barber shop and bath room, with
barber and valet, and in the observa
tion and drawing room cars there will
he a lady's maid in attendance. i
The Havana Limited will make the t
run from St. Louis to Mobile in seven
teen hours. This, added to the sched
ule of the S. S. "Prince George."
draws Havana within fifty-three hours
of St. Louis, and makes possible a
trip which will be one of such ease and
pleasure as never to be forgotten.
The modern S. S. "Prince George"
is constructed on the lines of the fam
ous Cunard Line ocean greyhounds
"(Camnpalia" and "Lucania" and is
fitted with eleven-inch bilge keels to
J keep her steady and easy in all
weather conditions. She maintains a
speed of nineteen knots an hour. is
lighted by electricity and ventilated by
an electric exhaust fan system.
tf The "Prince George'" has broad
sheltered promenade decks which ex
tend fore and aft the entire length of
the ship, and which are liberally sup
plied with reclining steamer chairs
'h for the free use of passengers. The
ay "Prince George" has accomodations
nt for two hundred first cabin passengers
and ample quarters for sixty of the in
to termediate class.
- The Mobile and Ohio Railroad to
a- Cuba is perhaps the finestwinter tour
x ist line for St. Louisians and for those
ne who live in the States immnediately
ly north, west, and east thereof. The
route immediately strikes south, and
is. with every passing moment of the
journey better and better weather con
ditions obtain. The route also em
ar. braces a sail in tropical waters of
" over thirty hours, away from noise
* and dust and dirt.
* The accomodations of the HFavana
* limited and theS. S. "Prince George"
Swill be strictly "limited" in chltrac
Ster, the idea being to provide a win
* tertourist service superior to any
* thing which is offereld in any directicon
Sduring the winter tourist season.

C(onference ofthe Methodist Episco. no

Grand and impressive and beyond un
all. ever recorded in history, will be yo
that glorious. transcendant chapter ha
which unfolds in plain but positive I v
language, the birth and march to vic- tio
tory, of the church founded by that his
hero of the l1th century: John Wesley. thf
That man of God, daring to proclaim
to the astonished world, the old story:
"Ye must be born again." No power
of mental conception or of historic g
portrayal inferior to the l)ivine, can e
set forth the resplendant advances and C
triumphs of the church founded by
this, God's nobleman.
A church is represented by you that
like the mustard tree of the parable,
I has grown into a mighty tree. its
- pranches extending from north to i)i
south, from orient to oxident. Never; he
since the reformation has the world tht
been permitted to witness so superlat. int
t ive an illustration of the capacity of to
one consecrated man, if he be lilled with
a holy zeal born of God: and never wl:
before, in the history of the world, has so
the church in her unsurpressed enthusi- of
asm and unfettered spirituality, been
, confirmed by achievements moresulen- in
did and endearing. ca
Contemplating with the briefest sur- ha
1 vey the phenominal success of Method- wi
ism, it can scarcely be realized today,
e that even after a few decades had to
lapsed since the coming of the new in
sect, that there were prophets of evil fr
' omen across the waters, the slaves and of
· devotees of priesteraft and enemies of se
a religious liberty, who predicted that
d Methodism was but the 'will o' the
whisu' of a fanatic, the imagery of a
" diseased mind, which a few rough
. storms would dissipate: yea, that
· Methodism like Jonah's gourd, 'grown C
· up over nieht, would perish in a day.'
o But the spirit of the Master was
II moving upon the waters of unbelief:
and he who promised to feed the ra
s vins at the brook. honoured his
word and in spite of ridicule p
and hostility by the press, and of
d the apocalyptic, luke warm Christians. ce

f stands today at the very van and n
challenges the tribunal of the world
s in the majesty of the eternal princi
, les of Methodism, embodied in her
s declaration, "Ye must be born again"I
s Acknowledging the mighty redemptive u
- power of the past. I must be just and J
admiringly I exclaim: Methodism has
o done much to make the world better,
and it has been used by the Intinite to
se bring man nearer to God, and Heaven
v nearer to earth. All hail to the here
e after and without the slighest pang
ed of jealously, I pray that Jehovah
he speed your onward march until all
